  Another Goodison game, another bore draw. Spurs went into this game in a position many hoped Everton would have been in, but late transfers and the worst injury crisis since the Walter Smith era left Everton just 2 points ahead of the relegation zone coming into this game, and once Yobo went off early […]

Why I expected anything different I don’t know, but our dreadful performance has really knocked out the optimism which foolishly crept into my mind this time yesterday.  At a time many will be blaming the Lescott saga or the board, this is a problem that has been around for some 8 seasons now.  Out of […]

Twice in a week and they still can’t be seperated, Everton and Liverpool drew 1-1 at Anfield in the 4th Round of the FA Cup. The multi-millionaires had a great chance thanks to a training ground injury rendering our midfield bereaved of any creativity. Liverpool had virtually all the play yet found themselves 1-0 behind […]
