Everton manager Roberto Martínez is young and hip. It’s no surprise, then, to see him turn up at a Jason Derulo concert in Manchester last night and, well, turn up. Maybe also not that surprising: Martínez’s dance moves aren’t exactly the sharpest:
After Everton took a 3-2 lead over Chelsea in the 90th minute, it looked like the Toffees had their first win at Stamford Bridge since 1994. But it wasn’t to be, as (an offside) John Terry redeemed his earlier own goal and scored in what can only be described as the stoppage time of stoppage time. It had to end this…
After a John Terry own goal gave Everton a 1-0 lead at Stamford Bridge, the Toffees scored one for themselves on a terrific half-volley from Kevin Mirallas off a, perhaps, sub-optimal cross by Leighton Baines. No matter; it only allowed Mirallas the opportunity to show up marvelous control.
Everton played something called Dag & Red FC this morning in the FA Cup, but more importantly, a cat invaded the game and tried to play soccer as if it was a human. Newsflash for you, my pal: no cats allowed.
Everton are putting Spurs where they belong (in the dang garbage) today (at least through the first 25 minutes of the game) at Goodison Park, thanks to this nifty little combination between Lukaku and Lennon.
Yellows for diving are generally reserved for players with reputations. A flop from your typical brave Brit is a lot less likely to receive a booking than the same one from a player refs know as a consistent victim of sniper fire.
Everton downed Newcastle today 1-0 thanks to a 93rd-minute long-range header by Tom Cleverley that proved to be the final touch of the match.
If you’ve watched more than a few Everton games this season, you’ve been witness to one of the more exhilarating sequences the Premier League has to offer. That would be Gerard Deulofeu toying with a defender on the right wing, readying a cross with his giant striker, Romelu Lukaku, lurking in the box. You can almost…
Right after talking about how great this kid was this weekend, he goes and unleashes more awesomeness today in the League Cup. Look at that goal! Look at this assist!
Here are some highlights from Everton vs. Sunderland, which ended 6-2 in favor of the Toffees thanks in large part to some astounding play from their absurdly gifted young winger, Gerard Deulofeu:
If the whole of Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Everton this weekend left me with any lasting impression, it was that I should give more respect to the Gunners’ budding title charge; they more or less coasted to another three points against formidable opposition, the sort of thing they’ve seemed capable of in recent years but…
Nine minutes into Everton’s match against Chelsea, Muhamed Besic had to leave because of a hamstring injury. Normally, losing a starter less than ten minutes into the game is a bad thing. But not on this day. On this day Steven Naismith replaced Besic, and promptly did this:
John Stones is a promising English center back currently playing for Everton, who’s pretty good and has every chance to get better. His talent, youth, potential, position, and Englishness all make him a very hot and very valuable commodity. (Word to Raheem Sterling.) But apparently out of some misguided belief in the…
For the American sports fan, following soccer means a reorientation about what constitutes success. With the success of the top teams reinforced by Champions League appearances and an enhanced global profile, there is a virtuous cycle to being good that makes it even harder to break into the top. At the other end,…
Tim Howard has earned a good amount of criticism for his play this season, but there’s no denying his save in the first half today against Southampton was top-class:
I know. I know. It was a great goal from Dynamo Kiev's Andriy Yarmolenko. Someone should've, could've stepped to the ball, at some point. Tim Howard probably couldn't have gotten to it anyway. I know. That's all out of the way.
This is probably as close as you'll get to seeing Beast Mode's famous Beast Quake run recreated on a soccer pitch. Everton's Romelu Lukaku knocks over a good three or four defenders before laying off the assist for Steven Naismith's equalizer, proving that he is indeed 'bout that action:
