Great how Everton can make you feel better out of nowhere, isn’t it? The sun shone on L4 as the Blues trounced Aston Villa, and now that Hurricane Gonzalo is causing havoc, who cares? We’re off to France. The French don’t react well to invasions so this one could get messy. Amidst a mad Premier […]
And after the great meltdown…there was Everton. And there was even more fuming after that. Unreal aren’t we. The season has been like watching any sporting team representing England; every time you think a corner is being turned, another setback knees you in an area that’s meant to be treated well. Just to compound that […]
Is anyone else starting to forget what Goodison Park looks like? Alright, that’s an exaggeration, but in reality the School of Science Roadshow winds up in a new town with home feeling even further away than ever, even if in fact it’s just a short trip down the M62. Since the last time we graced […]
You know what it’s like. The Merseyside derby. Another edition comes along, chock-full of fear, anticipation and that little sliver of hope that things can change. Then you watch ninety minutes of that sliver being trampled on remorselessly. Ninety minutes gone, you’ve seen the goal that condemns you to more misery. But then Phil Jagielka […]
There’s a storm brewing. Tension fills the air. I’ve been struck down by what I’m pretty sure is mutant super-Ebola. The river Mersey runs red with blood. That can only mean it’s derby day. For most sides a derby match is highly anticipated as a close-fought contest between two rivals, but 70s BBC personalities feel […]
It’s not often that I’m left speechless…and this isn’t one of them. Sweet holy fuck Everton. As regular readers may know I like to stick to the positives. The whole point of this is to make all three of you feel good about the upcoming game. Thanks for reading by the way people. But with […]
Apologies for this being a rush job. Long story. It’s Sheffield Wednesday’s fault. Where are we then? Of course. Everton are back in Europe, slaying not giants but still tough bastards. Basically we’re slapping nightclub bouncers and getting away with it. I’ll make up for this monstrosity of a preview with a big gushing piece […]
European football returns. Our chance to inflict Everton on the mainland. Trips to new outposts, Goodison nights under the lights with exotic guests in town.
Sometimes I think Everton do this on purpose. A moment of pure madness can normally be resolved by bouncing back in the next game, but of course we had to stew didn’t we. The end of the transfer window and the international break has allowed the fuming to build up, and this pressure cooker is […]
Jose Mourinho appointed himself Chelsea’s messiah, although Avram Grant and Roberto di Matteo steered them to the Champions League final, so figure that out for yourself.
