Scouse or English?


My first memory of supporting England was the European Championships of 1996. Gary Neville would later remark that though he didn’t know it then, this was as good as it got for a young player playing for England. For me as a young fan, this was very much the Everest of my experience of watching England.
Growing up in the south of England, outside of the match itself and family I only remember meeting one Everton supporter up until the my early teenage years.

Richarlison Reports Re-emerge


Reports have re-emerged linking Everton with Watford’s Brazilian forward Richarlison.
The Watford number 11 impressed during the early part of last season when Marco Silva was in charge of Watford. Richarlison scored five goals and created a further four by the middle of November but in the second half of the campaign the 21-year-old failed to score a single goal.

Hands Off Warning


Everton have rejected an audacious bid of just £12m from RB Leipzig for Ademola Lookman, issuing a hands off warning in the process.
Lookman spent the second half of the 2017/18 season on loan at RB Leipzig after he became a bit-part cog in then Sam Allardyce’s squad and the German club.
Director of football Marcel Brands and new manager Marco Silva see the young winger as an important part of the Everton squad this season and will not entertain bids.

A Comment On The Transfer Business to Date


In trying to comment and generalize from Everton’s pre season activity (or lack of) we are left with different competing and at times contradictory statements which all hold similar levels of validity.

A new structure has been implemented at the club, with a vastly different approach to recruitment hinted at.
Brands experience and CV as a DOF make him a coup for Everton and he would not likely tolerate being lied/misled.

Everton have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with DC United that will see Wayne Rooney join the MLS side on a permanent deal.
Rooney has long been linked with a switch to MLS and reports emerged late on Wednesday that he had agreed to sign for DC.
Rooney departs Goodison Park after just one season back at his boyhood club, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract with DC.

Once a Blue


The news of Wayne Rooney’s departure, for the 2nd time from the club will be met with none of the anger, sadness or relevance it did some 14 years ago when he first left. A move to DC United is both an enormous step down for England’s most decorated forward but also a unique and worthwhile opportunity to pursue for him and his family.
