Everton

Everton club badge

Everton Football Club was founded in Liverpool in 1878. The club was one of the founding members of the Football League. They played at Stanley Park for a few years before they moved to a brand new ground at Anfield. Everton stayed there for ten years before moving to Goodison Park which has been their home ever since. Goodison Park was the biggest football ground in the country when it was built and has staged more top-flight football matches than any other stadium. Today, it can hold 40,216 fans.

Wayne Rooneyreturned to Everton but has now left for the MLS.

In the late 1800s, there was a sweet shop that made special toffee mints to sell to the football fans on their way to the stadium. You can still buy 'Everton mints' today and Everton's nickname is the 'Toffees'. 

When Everton play at home, they wear blue shirts and black shorts. Their club badge has a picture of Prince Rupert's Tower which was built in 1787 in Everton. The tower was built to be used as a lock-up which was a little jail for criminals accused of minor crimes.

Everton have won 9 league titles, only Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have won more league titles than Everton in the history of English football. But, Everton’s last title was in 1987 and the highest they have finished in the Premier League is 4th, in 2005. Everton have also won the FA Cup 5 times, the League Cup twice and have won 1 European trophy. Everton’s most successful time in modern football was in the mid-1980s when they won 4 trophies.

Richarlison has joined Everton from Watford.

Everton was a small village a long time ago but is now part of the city of Liverpool. There is a strong rivalry between Everton and Liverpool football clubs, but the rivalry is mainly friendly. ‘The Merseyside Derby’, which is the match between Everton and Liverpool is sometimes called ‘The Friendly Derby’. In the past, it was common for friends, neighbours and relatives of the two teams to watch the ‘Derby’ together.

If you live in Liverpool, you have to decide who you support. There aren’t really parts of the city that are devoted to one team rather than the other. You’ll find just as many Everton supporters living close to Anfield (Liverpool’s ground), as there are Liverpool supporters living near Goodison Park (Everton’s). Most often it’s just down to whether someone’s dad, brother or uncle supports Liverpool or Everton.

‘Ross Barkley reminds me of Andres Iniesta and Xabi, he has the same mentality.’  Ex-Everton manager, Roberto Martinez.

In 2017/18, Everton finished 8th in the Premier League. It was a decent season for TheToffees after a difficult start when they sacked their manager, Ronald Koeman. Sam Allardyce came in as manager and Everton saw better results but many fans were not happy with the style of play. At the end of the season, Allardyce was replaced by Mario Silva the ex-Watford and Hull City manager. Everton have been busy in the transfer market this summer. They may have lost Wayne Rooney, but have brought in Richarlison from Watford and three players from Barcelona; Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina and  Andre Gomes.

Prediction 2018/19: 8th

Key player: Richarlison

Did you know....?

Everton experienced the biggest jump in Premier League positions, from one season to the next. In 2003-04, Everton finished 17th but in 2004-05 they finished 4th!

Sincerely, I'm not satisfied with Everton this season. I expected to see better performances on the pitch, a team ready to chase the place for Europa League or maybe more..Not so good on Goodison Park in 2015. I think they might do smth.in the FA cup though. 'The toffees' will beat Carlisle Utd. and qualify for the 5th round.
