Why every manager must be scared of taking the Everton job

There seemed to be a real sense of optimism around Everton when the club from Merseyside blew off about £140 million on roping in a host of quality players from other fellow clubs from the country and those from abroad. The signings didn’t just satisfy the need for quality reinforcements but also raised expectations among the Toffees faithful, who expected their club to give the mighty top six a run for their money. You can’t blame the fans, can you? …

Wayne Rooney Is Not The Answer For Everton

Everton face Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend, nearly 15 years to the day since a wonder-strike from a teenage Wayne Rooney earned the Toffees a 2-1 win over the then league holders.

Now 31, Rooney's dazzling career has been on a downturn for some time and a move away from Manchester United was inevitable. With Everton goal-machine Romelu Lukaku going in the opposite direction, United off-loaded …

Sandro Ramirez to Everton: A Great Replacement for Lukaku

Sandro Ramirez to Everton: A Great Replacement for Lukaku

Recently Everton completed a quite unusual transfer deal. Although this entire window is a bit unusual for the Toffees, who are usually a bit understated in the transfer window, this particular deal is an outlier in terms of the price paid by them. Generally, the high Premier League revenues mean that when English top tier clubs go shopping, whether amongst themselves or in Europe, the transfer prices are a bit (or a lot) higher than what the player’s ability, contract …
