• Carragher surprised with Ancelotti’s proposed move to Everton

    Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that he has been surprised by Carlo Ancelotti’s imminent move to Everton. The Merseyside outfit have fared impressively under the guidance of Duncan Ferguson in an interim role over the past two matches but the club have still taken the decision to recruit a new manager from the outside.


    The Toffees have been linked with a number of top names over the past few years and reports have emerged that they are now on the cusp of landing Ancelotti as their next boss. This has certainly a number of fans and pundits alike, and Carragher believes Ancelotti has a big job on his hands with the Toffees, who are languishing at the tail-end of the table.

  • Marco Silva Confident of Improving Everton’s Form

    Everton boss Marco Silva claims that he can still remain in the job by turning around the club’s poor form. The manager has had a difficult relationship with Everton supporters as the club are going under a crisis in terms of form. Everton have had four managers in less than four years and a recent defeat against Norwich City has started chants about Silva becoming the next manager to get the sack. Even though a number of claims from the likes of Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has emerged in the last few weeks, Silva is clearly fast losing the support of fans.


    Mark Hughes and David Moyes have been touted as potential replacements. The club have already dispatched several great managers like Sam Allardyce, Ronald Koeman, and Roberto Martinez in order to invest in Silva. Farhad Moshiri, who is the club’s major shareholder, has indicated that he wants stability at the club. In the past, Everton were able to achieve a lot of success only through stability with David Moyes spending more than a decade at the club before leaving for Manchester United in 2016. Since the exit of Moyes, it has been a troubled period for the Merseyside outfit. Everton are now in a desperate situation with the team just four points away from the relegation zone.

  • Darren Bent delivers verdict on Marco Silva’s future at Everton

    Former Premier League star Darren Bent believes Marco Silva is walking a tight rope at Everton and he could be sacked, should the Toffees fail to improve on their league results. The Merseyside outfit made a strong end to the previous season where they beat the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United and that led to suggestions that they could make a strong push for the top six during the ongoing season.

    However, that has not been the case with the Toffees struggling for consistency and a four-match losing streak before the international break sees them in the drop zone with just seven points on the board. There have already been calls from the fans for a change in the head coach and Bent believes that could become a possibility, should there be no improvement in the coming months.

  • Frank Lampard says he always believed in Tammy Abraham

    Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that he always had the trust and belief that Tammy Abraham would prove his credentials with the club. The England international made a slow beginning to the campaign with three below-par performances but he has since found a scoring streak with seven goals in the past three matches.

    Speaking in a press conference, Lampard said that he had no clear expectations for the young marksman but always had the trust that the 21-year-old could make the difference, he told: “I never had clear expectations for him, only the fact that I believed in him and trusted in him. I know a lot has been made about the ban giving young players opportunities but I felt the time was right for Tammy to have his opportunity at this club anyway, because of the quality he has got. I’m really delighted that he has got his goals. I think there’s even more to come. He’s in a good place, a place that just requires him to sustain and improve even more and I think with his mentality and the way he is every day I hope to see that.”

  • Former Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi reveals reason behind Everton move

    Nigeria international Alex Iwobi has said that he wanted to remove the youngster tag from his time at Arsenal and that was the prime reason behind the move to Everton. The 23-year-old appeared on course to remain with the Gunners on transfer deadline day before the Toffees came up with a suitable package, minutes before the 5pm cut-off time.

    Thereafter, the transfer went smoothly with the extension which was applied with the Premier League and Iwobi is now looking forward to making a name for himself with the Toffees, he said: “I spoke to the manager and Marcel [Brands] and they almost lured me in. The offer was too attractive for me to turn down. The manager was telling me, ‘There is a spot for you, we will take care of you’. Basically, all the things you want to hear as a player. I always had that youngster tag at Arsenal, so hopefully with this move I am able to make a name for myself in the Premier League and create history with Everton.” (more…)

  • Convincing Richarlison to join the club last summer was easy, says Everton boss

    Everton manager Marco Silva has indicated that it was an easy task to convince Richarlison to join the club during the previous summer transfer window. The 22-year-old joined the Toffees after a single season in the Premier League with Watford and there were question marks whether he would be able to succeed after a disappointing second half to the 2017/2018 season.

    However, he managed to prove his critics wrong with an impressive tally of 14 goals for the Toffees last term and he was mostly recently part of Brazil’s Copa America-winning side. Speaking to the club’s official website, Silva acknowledged that it was not an easy deal in terms of signing the attacker, considering the Toffees had to pay an initial £35m fee to the Hornets.

  • Idrissa Gueye refuses to speak on the PSG speculation

I did not read L’Equipe but they told me about it. I am fully focused on my competition. We’ll have time to talk about it again if it’s still there. I cannot talk about it here. Once again, I am focused on my competition.”

  • Everton on the verge of landing Andre Gomes from Barcelona

    Everton are reportedly close to wrapping up the signature of midfielder Andre Gomes from Barcelona. The Portugal international was impressive during his season-long loan with the Toffees during the previous campaign and that has enticed the Merseyside outfit to negotiate a permanent move for his signature this summer.

    According to AS, the Toffees are currently under advanced negotiations with the Blaugrana for the services of the former Valencia man and they are confident of agreeing a fee of around £22m for the permanent transfer of the midfielder.

    Everton boss Marco Silva has said that the Toffees must seek to re-sign Andre Gomes this summer, although the eventual decision is dependent on parent side Barcelona. The Portugal international spent the recent Premier League season on loan with the Toffees and he made a valuable impact in the 27 games where he featured.

    As such, the Merseyside outfit appear keen on landing a permanent move for his services but that is dependent on the Blaugrana, who are also evaluating interest from elsewhere for the midfielders. Speaking to O Jogo, the Toffees head coach said: “There is a Portuguese player in the squad that we want, which is Andre Gomes.
