Ever since Ken Bates launched a typically outspoken criticism of Everton’s capture of Luke Garbutt, the aspiring full-back has been burdened with greater expectation than most Academy scholars should face.
The Blues paid a substantial fee – determined by a tribunal – but Bates’ media diatribe threw a spotlight on a kid.
Football’s fascination with potential stars of the future can...
More so than almost any other figure at the Club, our Season Ticket prices come in for close scrutiny – checked and rechecked by us; poured over, analysed, and commented by the press.
And, like all prices, they only ever seem to head in one direction. There’s a commonly held view that football is getting less and less affordable. But...
Phil Neville’s comments about how the FA Cup may be the best chance of qualification for the Europa League have prompted me to pause and consider how crucial the next few games are to the Club’s ambitions for the rest of the season and beyond.

Apparently you have to be mad to be a goalkeeper.
Well, that would explain why Everton’s newest professional – young Polish custodian Mateusz Taudul – is walking around Finch Farm doing Only Fools and Horses impressions.
It has been quite a journey for Taudul, who was plucked from obscurity in his homeland after being happened upon by an Everton scout while...
Seamus Coleman’s return to action this week wouldn’t have escaped the attention of most Evertonians. The Republic of Ireland international scored in Everton reserves’ 6-3 thumping of Newcastle United, playing 55 minutes and netted the opening goal of the match after only five minutes.
The full-back turned winger’s marauding runs have been missing from David Moyes’ team for the best part...
