Well, that didn’t take long. After just three seasons at Everton—the first of which was a rousing success and seemed to mark the manager and club for coming greatness—Roberto Martínez is reportedly all set to be fired today. It’s both understandable and a little strange. Update: It’s official, he’s out.
So that’s pretty much it, eh? We already have our Premier League champions—whose coronation was catered by an exceedingly accommodating Everton team—at the top of the table, and at the bottom we also know which teams are going down, thanks to Sunderland’s victory today, again brought to us by Everton.
Anthony Martial scored the winner in the third minute of stoppage time as Manchester United overcame an own goal to beat Everton in today’s FA Cup semifinal, 2-1.
Check this out. In today’s Merseyside Derby, Liverpool beat Everton 4-0. Now, that scoreline by itself is bad. But to really get a semblance of how resounding the Pool Boys’ win was, look at these astoundingly one-sided stats:
On one hand, it’s a fitting reflection of the topsy-turvy season in England that, heading into the final four of the FA Cup, the competition’s best remaining player isn’t a world-famous, well-decorated superstar for Chelsea or Manchester City or Arsenal, but rather trophy-barren Everton’s 22-year-old striker. On the…
Everton downed Chelsea 2-0 in FA Cup action today, though the real excitement came in the final minutes as Diego Costa earned a red card for intruding on Gareth Barry’s personal space; Barry himself would be sent off minutes later, but let’s not miss the glory of Costa either kissing Barry, trying to give him a…
According to a report from ESPNFC’s Jeff Carlisle, USMNT keeper Tim Howard is on his way back to MLS to mind the net for the Colorado Rapids, who had one of their keepers do this not two years ago. Per the report, Howard dropped his insane $5 million per year demand and accepted a three-year contract worth $2 million…
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:
