Scouse Showman Barkley Eases Everton's Blues

Just moments after Everton’s 3-0 win at home to lowly Newcastle United on Wednesday, Roberto Martinez was waxing lyrical about his star player Ross Barkley. 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 …
Could Everton challenge for the top six again?

Could Everton challenge for the top six again?

Everton have had an interesting couple of years under Roberto Martinez, with a 5th and 11th placed finishes. The Spaniard is certainly the right man for the job, with last season's disappointment being largely down to the Europa League. Everton have a very good squad, but it is small and the extra games that the Europa League brought had a negative effect. They have started this season off with two wins, two draws and a defeat, which came against the …

New Formation & Tactical Ideas for Struggling Everton

The season so far as been long, boring and painful and the Everton fans have been constantly seeing the same style of play, the same boring formation and often come out with the same result. The 4-2-3-1 formation is statically the most used formation in the Premier League and it has been used by Everton even before Roberto Martinez walked into Goodison Park. Although he has actually started to use the 4-3-3 formation (which is frustrating me even more), it …

Everton vs Young Boys | Europa League Preview

Everton have been excellent in the Europa League this season and some have accused Roberto Martinez of prioritising the competition above the Premier League, which has left the club in a fragile position domestically. Last season the club came really close to qualifying for the Champions League, but this season the opportunity to qualify for Europe's premier competition through the Europa League may have appealed to Martinez.

The longest running top flight derby will be held for the 224th time on Saturday evening as Everton host Liverpool in a crucial league game. It has already become the subject of controversy after the Merseyside police as well as Liverpool’s mayor, Joe Anderson, requested the Premier League to bring forward the 5.30pm kick-off time, but the request was rejected because of broadcasting issues as the North London derby starts at 12.45pm on the same day. It will be the …

Ross Barkley: England's Diamond in the Rough with World Class Potential

There is currently more to the football world in Liverpool than one of the biggest rivalries in the UK and in Europe between Everton FC and Liverpool FC. The Merseyside clubs can pride themselves with possessing two of the biggest talents in world football: Raheem Sterling and Ross Barkley. It is now 10 years since Ross Barkley joined Everton’s academy as an 11 year old boy. A lot of time has passed since then, time, during which the young player …
