I don’t like to chuck the word legend around when it comes to football players but Wayne Rooney? Legend. But it feels like everyone seems to be forgetting this. Now big personalities like Pogba and Ibrahimovic have joined it seems to be drowning the importance of the original players i.e. Rooney and Carrick with all

Last week, Everton manager Ronald Koeman provided a unique moment of honest evaluation regarding the future of Romelu Lukaku, as the Dutchman asserted that the striker will have to leave Goodison Park to fulfill his potential. “His potential is greater and higher than Everton as a final destination,” Koeman said in the Belgian newspaper HLN.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku joined the club back in 2013 from Chelsea and then signed for them for a record fee of twenty-eight million pounds. It was a huge amount of money for the Toffees, but the forward has been a great free bets value having been one of the leading goal scorers in the

Last season, Everton underachieved significantly. Despite being a bright spark going forward, the Toffees defensive vulnerability cost them dearly, resulting is a highly disappointing finish of 11th and manager Roberto Martinez losing his job. However, where there is a new season, a new manager and new signings, there is hope. Everton is a club that

It was slightly disappointing to hear Everton fans, with their team 0-3 up against Sunderland, gleefully booming out a rendition of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” towards their old manager David Moyes on Monday night. Moyes had given Everton 11 years’ service in which he guided the club to five top 6 finishes and

West Ham United forward Enner Valencia has joined Everton on a season- long loan, despite holding talks with Swansea City prior to the close of the summer transfer window. The Ecuador international has signed for an undisclosed fee, with the option of a permanent transfer at the end of the season for £14.5 million. The

In the summer of 2007, Liverpool signed Fernando Torres for £25 million, a fee not including the move of Luis Garcia in the opposite direction. Torres had scored 91 goals across five seasons in La Liga for his boyhood club Atletico Madrid and Liverpool, looking for a goal-scorer to fire a title challenge after reaching

Despite being relegated with Aston Villa last season, Idrissa Gana Gueye was signed on a four-year deal by new Everton manager Ronald Koeman in the summer. Although the Senegal international huffed and puffed in the heart of a sorry Villa midfield last term, the 26-year-old failed to help the Villains stay in the Premier League.

Compared to the summers of disruption Ronald Koeman endured at Southampton, his first transfer window in charge of Everton has been relatively tranquil. Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren and Callum Chambers were all sold in his first few months on the south coast, spawning that memorable empty training ground tweet, while Morgan

It is not often that a player makes the return to one of his former clubs. However, this season could see the end to that buck. Paul Pogba has now broken the world transfer record to move back to his former club Manchester United, from Juventus. It seems like massively overpaid training in hindsight. It

Everton fans will want to forget about their inconsistent 2015-16 campaign. Roberto Martinez was a nice guy but he simply couldn’t cut it at the top level and was rightfully sacked towards the end of the season. Despite his reasonable win percentage, the former Wigan Athletic boss’ downfall was his insistence on prioritising performance over

So, Koeman has made the move to become the new Everton manager. The news has seemingly been received positively by the Toffees faithful after a somewhat nightmarish 2015/16 season with Martinez at the helm. With a compensation packet of roughly the £3.5 million mark, along with the compensation fees to be agreed for the backroom

One key position that Manchester United need to reinforce ahead of the 2016/17 season is a centre-back. Chris Smalling established himself as first-choice for both club and country after a stellar season, but questions still remain over the identity of his partner. Daley Blind filled the gap and played well under van Gaal, but he

The Roberto Martinez era at Everton was one that promised so much with a talented squad and some of English football’s brightest young talents enjoying a fine first season under the likeable Spaniard. However ultimately it was a reign that regressed with every passing year and delivered precious little so it was no surprise when

What do Harry Kane and Riyad Mahrez have in common? And how about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo? Well all of them are seasoned goal scorers, although two are human while the other two are extra-terrestrial. The point is everyone loves a player who can score goals. That is why we watch the game; that
