In April we commissioned artist Alex Bennett to work with Everton fans across GrandOldTeam’s platforms to produce ‘Everton Mishmash – The History of Everton Football Club in One Image’, and the latest update is below – click to enlarge.

Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov has admitted he would be “happy” to help his friend Farhad Moshiri and would consider a deal to invest.
Usmanov: “We are friends with Farhad Moshiri. If he needs the support, I am happy to help.”
“Should there be a proposal or a possibility to invest in them with good potential returns, I would consider the deal,” he said.
Richarlison kicked off life in the royal blue jersey perfectly when he lit up Molineux on Saturday evening, netting both of Everton’s goals on his competitive debut.
So much was made of the Brazilian’s price tag prior to kick-off, the media have their £50 million narrative set in stone and there is no doubt when the day Everton’s new no. 30 has an off day, that figure will be splashed all over the back pages.
The hardest thing in life is getting back into the saddle. Whether it’s work, love or life when you have been bitterly disappointed it requires courage to trust again. You can only ever grow, succeed and become fulfilled if you do so. Football for many is an odd cocktail of work, love and life so the allegory makes some sense to me. Last season most of the fans expected an awful lot and were given very little. We are rightly more cautious about believing things could improve 12 months on.
Seamus Coleman had descrived Richarlison as “a proper Everton player”
Coleman: “I was not surprised by his performance.
“I do not want to put too much pressure on him but he is a great lad. He does all the stuff you need to do going forward.
“But he digs in, too, and is a proper team player. I am very excited by him. He is a proper Everton player.
Phil Jagielka has used his Instagram account to congratulate Richarlison and praise his team mates performance following his dismissal in Everton’s 2-2 draw at Wolves.
Jagielka said: “Well done boys for a battling performance!
“Congrats to @richarlison for ⚽️⚽️ on your debut 💙.
Everton have completed the signing of Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan.
Everton submitted a deal sheet ahead of Thursday’s 5pm deadline meaning Everton had today to conclude formalities.
Zouma is Everton’s seventh signing of pre-season alongside Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Joao Virginia, Bernard, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.
Rejoice! Premier League football is back and Everton are ready to attack the 2018/19 campaign under the guidance of Marco Silva, starting with a tough test at Molineux.
The fixture will be Wolves’ first taste of PL action since they finished rock bottom of the division back in May 2012, with just 25 points to their name.
They suffered a torrid time after they slipped out of the top level of English football.
