Lingard Lights up Russia as England Qualify for the Round of 16

Lingard Lights up Russia as England Qualify for the Round of 16

On Sunday, England put six - yes, six goals - past Panama to seal qualification to the next round in a manner they have arguably never done before at the grandest of stages. It was a blend of contrasts throughout.  For it was reticent, yet an impressively flamboyant display at times. It was in some ways, imperfect and error-strewn yet incredibly clinical and ruthless when it really mattered. It was a matured performance; coming from a bunch of mostly wild …
Will Williams and Kone improve the Everton defence?

Will Williams and Kone improve the Everton defence?

Everton have had a frustrating transfer window and the sale of John Stones for £47.5m has created a need for defensive reinforcements. Ashley Williams joined on Wednesday for a fee of £12m, which is a good addition and adds some much needed leadership to the defence. They are also looking for another centre back to strengthen the squad, with Lamine Kone a priority target. Everton have already had an £18m bid turned down for the Sunderland defender and could return …

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 …
What should Ronald Koeman do at Everton this summer?

What should Ronald Koeman do at Everton this summer?

This is a managerial move that has shocked many as Dutch football legend Ronald Koeman has opted to switch Southampton for Everton, despite the Saints finishing five places above his new club. It is certainly a risky move for Koeman, as the pressure will be increased on Merseyside, but he will feel that there is more potential for growth at Everton. Southampton continually sell their key players and he will have doubted his ability to keep them in the top …
John Stones - Big Decision to Make?

John Stones - Big Decision to Make?

Everton are facing a mass exodus this summer, with John Stones and Romulu Lukaku the most likely to depart after the club failed to qualify for European football. The Sunday Express reports that the former is a priority target for the new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, while the Mail on Sunday suggests Barcelona are set to make a £25m offer for the defender. He had a disappointing campaign and was partially to blame for the club's poor defensive showings. …
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 …
Will Vardy Change Anything?

Will Vardy Change Anything?

Jamie Vardy, a £1million buy from Fleetwood Town in the Conference in 2012, is the Premier League's leading goal scorer. That is an astonishing feat and he is one short of Ruud Van Nistelrooy's all time record of scoring in ten consecutive Premier League matches. He had such self belief that he inserted a clause in his contract that he would get a bonus if he played for England when signing for Leicester in 2012. Rarely has a non league …
