Why Ashley Williams is the Perfect Signing for Everton

Why Ashley Williams is the Perfect Signing for Everton

Everton have had another poor league campaign by all accounts where they ended up in the bottom half for the second season in a row after a sensational fifth place finish in 2013/14. A string of horrific defeats including the 4-0 derby drubbing at Anfield might have ultimately led to them parting ways with their manager Roberto Martinez, but the supporters and everyone associated with this grand old football club seem to be excited about the new era under Ronald Koeman …

2015-16 Premier League Season Review: Part Two

Read Part One here... European success On the whole, it’s been disappointing for English clubs competing in Europe in the last five years but this year brought a little bit more success.

Where Should Everton Go Next This Summer?

Where Should Everton Go Next This Summer?

Roberto Martinez is clinging onto his job and many expect him to be replaced this summer, after a very poor season. His side should have been challenging in the top half and pushing towards Europa League places. They have a stronger squad than West Ham, Southampton and Leicester, but all three have surpassed the Toffees considerately. Martinez has always been highly rated, but his inconsistency as a manager continues to be an issue. It was always a risk giving the …

Roberto Martinez must tinker his football philosophy

Roberto Martinez must tinker his football philosophy

Roberto Martinez's first year in-charge of Everton was full of pleasant surprises. The former Wigan boss did a wonderful job as his side finished in fifth place and gave Arsenal a scare for the last Champions League spot. In hindsight, the 2013-14 season was one of overachievement for the Merseyside managers. Brendan Rodgers took Liverpool to almost win the title, eventually finishing in the second place and his counterpart at Everton ensured Everton finished with the European spot. In striking …

The 36,000 fans who’d turned up at Goodison Park on a tired midweek evening will tell you that this wasn’t Barkley’s best performance in an Everton shirt, but despite this he still managed to be the outstanding player on the pitch in a match low on quality. He was often hesitant when it came to …
