  1. Everton must tread carefully in Lukaku pursuit

    Luke O'Farrell

    Approaching the end of the season, Everton can reflect on a job well done: a club record Premier League points total in the bag, and European football back on the agenda, albeit Europa League rather than Champions League. Inevitably, with this cam...

  2. Substitutes keep Everton marching on

    Luke O'Farrell

    The football was not always easy on the eye in this 3-1 win over Fulham for Everton. In fact it was downright ugly at times, but the path toward victory is largely irrelevant at this stage of the season; it is the winning itself that matters most. ...

  3. Everton dare to dream after Newcastle win

    Luke O'Farrell

    Stumbling through recent matches, collecting three points but rarely convincing in terms of performance, Everton can view this 3-0 win over Newcastle as a welcome, overdue reminder of the quality football that had them just one point off fourth place...

  4. Everton must wise up, nothing more

    Luke O'Farrell

    As Arsenal stomped all over those dreams of Wembley and silverware, leaving Everton to focus on their pursuit of European football via the league, a second half incident saw the re-emergence of an old argument. Everton are too nice. They are the t...

  5. Martinez approach key to ending Chelsea hoodoo

    Luke O'Farrell

    Smarting from the morale-sapping defeat at Tottenham, which comprised of eye-catching but ultimately toothless football, the last-minute postponement against Crystal Palace and the resumption of the FA Cup merely prolonged Everton's league agony. ...

  6. Tony Hibbert: deal or no deal

    Luke O'Farrell

    There is plenty of football left this season, from the winners and losers in the cups to those chasing a target in the league, but attention will soon turn toward next season and the inevitable changes that follow. One such area needing attention is ...

  7. Young guns honing the Martinez methods

    Luke O'Farrell

    With Premier League football taken off the menu, this time due to high winds and safety concerns, the search for that weekly footballing fix saw a return to the Arriva Stadium on Thursday, home of local Evo-Stik League Premier Division side Marine. ...

  8. Striker shortage threatens to undermine European push

    Luke O'Farrell

    Points make prizes, as Bruce Forsyth once regularly pointed out on Play Your Cards Right, and should Everton fall short in their quest for the prize of Champions League football, the points dropped at White Hart Lane may be the ones that prove fatal....

  9. Pienaar cures Everton's derby hangover

    Luke O'Farrell

    When Everton trudged off at halftime, trailing to a well-taken Leandro Bacuna goal, the after-effects of the derby defeat were plain for all to see. Villa had snatched the lead via their only shot on target, but the football displayed by the home sid...

  10. Weekend results make West Brom trip a must-win

    Luke O'Farrell

  12. Lower leagues can teach big teams a thing or two

    Luke O'Farrell

    International breaks create a void in the typical football-filled weekend, especially when the alternative is an England side cantering towards mediocrity. As a result, the lack of all things Everton led to a Saturday afternoon watching local side Ma...

  13. Pienaar return lifts lacklustre Everton

    Luke O'Farrell

    The 2-1 win eked out against Hull on Saturday does not warrant rave reviews, nor will it live long in the memory, yet football remains a results business -- and the three points acquired may be vital in the final reckoning. Functional rather than ...

  14. October 15th is a key date in Everton history

    Luke O'Farrell

    Aside from the obvious, that being people linked to the date via a special event or occasion, October 15th is like any other day; the 288th day of the year is unlikely to resonate with too many. For those of a royal blue persuasion, however, the 15th...
