Everton Mishmash – The History of Everton Football Club in One Image


After six months, 30,000 suggestions and 750 hours of illustrating hours…the Everton Mishmash is complete!
In April, we commissioned illustrator Alex Bennett to work with Everton fans across our platform to illustrate all their favourite, treasured moments into one design.
From derby days to cup triumphs, to when Muhammad Ali shadow boxed with Everton fans in Hyde Park – we used all our platforms to invite Evertonians to provide their favourite Everton moments.

Edward ‘Ted’ Sagar


Ted Sagar spent 24 years at Everton, played 497 games, won three major trophies and was the first man to wear a number one shirt in England. The main reason for Sagar’s reputation amongst Evertonians is due to the longevity of his Goodison career. His 463 League appearances from 1929-1953 has only been surpassed by Neville Southall’s 578 League games. However, it is unfair to say that the only reason that Sagar is an Everton legend is because he played so many games.

Assessing the Initial Start


I’ve long felt the international break comes at an inopportune moment for most football spectators. England’s recent success at the World Cup has not changed my mind on that. It feels like you are just getting into the momentum of the new season and suddenly 2 weeks without football feels a long void.

GOT Player of the Month – August 2018


Following a largely abject pre-season, Marcel Brands and Marco Silva oversaw a flurry of late transfer window activity. A number of departures eased the pressure on the wage bill but more importantly, a number of arrivals boosted the thinned out squad to hopefully add some much needed quality.
Just the four games in August to get the season underway and Everton went unbeaten in three Premier League encounters and overcame the first hurdle in the Carabao Cup.

Everton 1-1 Huddersfield


What a disappointing advert for the Premier League this game was as Huddersfield came for a point, determined to defend and time-waste, while Everton struggled throughout to find any real cohesion despite having most of the possession.
Unbeaten in the Premier League and through to a third round tie in the Carabao Cup, Everton went up against Yorkshires’ Terriers with a squad somewhat hit by injuries.

Everton 3-1 Rotherham United


Everton gained safe passage to the third round of the Carabao Cup courtesy of Gylfi Sigurdsson and a brace from Dominic Calvert-Lewin in front of just under 32,000 inside Goodison Park.
The League, now Carabao, Cup hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Everton. Twice losing finalists, to Aston Villa in the late 1970s and ‘them’ in 83-84, it’s high time Everton corrected that miserable record.

Everton v Rotherham United


Everton kick off an attempt to end a 23 year trophy drought when Marco Silva’s side welcome Rotherham United to Goodison Park in the Carabao Cup.
Generations of Evertonians have never seen their beloved club lift a trophy, no blue has ever witnessed their side win the League Cup.
Silva, without the hindrance of European football this term, will be hoping he is the man to break the Toffees’ duck.

Everton need a ‘real’ captain


Over the course of the last few seasons, there has been much comment and debate on Everton websites, forums, chat rooms and social media. In pubs, on matchday, inside Goodison, in fact just about everywhere, there’s been opinion over a crucial role within the club – its captaincy.
In the final season of David Moyes, he appointed Phil Jagielka as club captain, and many saw this as Moyes showing loyalty to a tried and trusted player.

Bournemouth 2-2 Everton


Down to ten men with Richarlison stupidly sent off for an innocuous head butt, Everton went two goals ahead but were unable to keep Bournemouth from snatching a draw after they too had been reduced to ten. But the goals and red cards were overshadowed by a potentially serious injury to Michael Keane.
