Wayne Rooney Is Not The Answer For Everton

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. All these years later, Rooney finds himself back at his boyhood club ahead of another clash with Arsène Wenger. 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 …

Everton vs Arsenal Preview | Team News, Stats and Key Men

The early kick-off on Sunday will be an interesting contest as both Everton and Arsenal need to pick up a positive result. The Gunners will take confidence from their previous success in this fixture as they have won more Premier League matches against the Toffees than any other opponent. However, they have yet to win away from home this season and their disappointing loss to Watford last weekend will be playing on the minds of the players. Ronald Koeman's side …

Why Hasn't Everton's Summer Spending Translated to Results on the Pitch?

Eighty minutes into a tight affair at Old Trafford, Everton had kept their defensive solidity and held the score to just 1-0 against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. Seeking a goal to get back into the match, they instead conceded a further three to be handed their fourth consecutive loss. After a summer of promising signings and talk of new ambition from a club that qualified for this season’s Europa League, Ronald Koeman’s Everton have failed to kick on, instead passing …

Everton 2017/18 Premier League Season Preview

After three tumultuous years under Roberto Martinez, Ronald Koeman was appointed at Everton to steady the ship.  The Dutchman brought Everton from 11th place the last two seasons up to 7th last season and managed the Toffies to 14 more points than they won last season. This season could prove to be tougher for Koeman.  He lost his star striker Romelu Lukaku this summer and has failed to truly replace him, despite spending quite a lot of money. Lukaku was …
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 …

Everton are Keane to Begin their Ascent

The idea that Michael Keane could finally move to Goodison Park from Burnley - the well-trodden path in the North West of England chosen by previous exports of the Manchester United academy should not come as much of a surprise. But what Ronald Koeman is achieving at Everton on the back of a fine season particularly at their fabled home, in this summer transfer window - will have certainly raised eyebrows across Merseyside - even that of the Blues who …

Everton Sign Davy Klaassen from Ajax – Another Statement of Intent

Over the last two days there was considerable speculation over Antonio Conte’s future at Chelsea. Some reports, most likely falsely, suggested that the Italian manager was unhappy at the Champions because he felt he was not getting the support he needed to make the transfers he needs to solidify his team’s place at the top and target the Champions League. Whether true or not, if Conte was benchmarking his side against the Blues from Liverpool, he has reason to feel …

The title race is on in the Premier League with only four points separating Chelsea and Tottenham. Although they have been in the box-seat for the majority of this campaign, they have not been crowned champions yet and the Blues need to ensure that they remain focused on winning their remaining matches. This weekend sees one of their most difficult fixtures left to play as they travel to Goodison Park to face in-form Everton. They haven't lost at home since December …
