Should Roberto remain as Everton manager?

During his time at Everton, Roberto Martinez has taken charge of 101 Premier League matches, winning 41, drawing 31 and losing 29, as well as leading the Toffees back into European football. However, recent weeks has seen a growing number of fans calling for the Spaniard to be dismissed. After being knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Manchester City, throwing away points carelessly against Chelsea and being bowled over by...

Were Everton right to sell Steven Naismith?

Everton forward Steven Naismith sealed an £8.5 million move to Norwich City last Tuesday after failing to secure a regular spot in the Toffees’ first-team this season. The Canaries came knocking for the forward’s services on deadline day in September but Roberto Martinez blocked the move at the time. However, Alex Neil has been more successful with his negotiating this month and lured the Scotsman to Carrow Road, where he...

Martinez must get the balance right to guide Everton to Wembley

Last Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Manchester City had Goodison Park bouncing. Although the fans’ hopes were high it is fair to say that many, including myself, were biting their nails at the prospect of the Citizens marching into Merseyside. However, a resilient performance from the Toffees ensured that they head to the Etihad with every chance of securing a place at Wembley. There is no doubt that the trip to Manchester will be tough....

Romelu Lukaku can’t stop scoring, Gerard Deulofeu has matured into a creative machine, Ross Barkley is finally living up to expectations and the club has kept hold of superb centre-back John Stones. However, where are our points? We currently sit ninth in the...

The Rise and Rise of Romelu Lukaku

It’s easy to forget that the prolific Romelu Lukaku is only 22 years old. The forward shows strength and maturity beyond his years and, with a goal every two games for Everton, is quickly developing into a world-class striker. Bill Kenwright and the Everton board made a huge statement of intent by forking out £24 million for the Belgian’s services in 2014. For me it marked a turning point in our club’s history. No longer was Everton a...

Do Everton need a new goalkeeper to replace Tim Howard?

On Sunday, Everton faced Liverpool in the 225th Merseyside derby, and, as with most of the recent meetings, it was the Evertonians who felt the most disappointment. The result was a draw, but the feeling of absolute deflation and frustration shows how far we have come from the team that I watched growing up in the 90s. However, it also pointed out two areas of weakness in our squad. We all knew that we needed a playmaker with guile...
