- Sat, 17 Mar 2018 17:15:40 +0000: Two goals from Cenk Tosun give Everton snowy victory over Stoke - Everton | The Guardian
To the list of times and weather conditions under which foreign pros should be tested at Stoke add “Saturday afternoon” and “blizzard”. Everton’s Cenk Tosun met the challenge here, claiming a second-half brace to earn victory for the visitors in a tempest of snow.
Stoke’s prospects of avoiding relegation worsened with the weather and they will feel aggrieved at this defeat. The Potters had Charlie Adam sent off in the first half during treacherous conditions. They also fought their way back into the match from one down, with Tosun’s opener itself prompting suspicions of offside. But a diving header from the Turkish international in the 84th minute proved the game’s decisive action.Continue reading...
- Fri, 16 Mar 2018 22:33:00 +0000: Liverpool’s Jürgen Klopp fumes about ‘breakfast’ kick-off for Merseyside derby - Everton | The Guardian
• Klopp’s side face Everton at 12.30pm after Champions league tie
• Guardiola has his own problems with 5.30pm start for United game
Jürgen Klopp was happy with the Champions League draw until he realised that after playing Manchester City on the Wednesday his Liverpool side would face an early kick-off on the Saturday – against Everton.
The Merseyside derby was originally scheduled for Sunday 8 April but was brought forward by a day for TV purposes. Manchester City are in a somewhat similar situation – their game between the two legs of the quarter-final is against Manchester United – and it could be the one that sees them crowned Premier League champions, but that game kicks off at a more reasonable 5.30pm.Continue reading...
- Fri, 16 Mar 2018 16:59:07 +0000: Stoke City v Everton: match preview - Everton | The Guardian
Sam Allardyce takes Everton to struggling Stoke, whom they beat 1-0 on the opening day with a debut goal from Wayne Rooney when both teams were under different management, with five successive defeats on their recent travels, his last point coming when the team were outplayed in a 0-0 by West Bromwich Albion. “We’ve been using some more work into the mind in the analysis room. Who we are, what we want to achieve, what we can get,” Allardyce said. Stoke, who lost their free-hit to Manchester City 2-0 on Monday, see this as a match they can and must get three points from and with games running out, will be confident they have the wherewithal to further bamboozle Everton.

- Thu, 15 Mar 2018 12:30:36 +0000: Winning is no longer enough for managers – they must do it with style | Liam Rosenior - Everton | The Guardian
Sam Allardyce has lifted Everton to ninth in the Premier League and José Mourinho’s Manchester United sit second but Pep Guardiola has altered fans’ expectations
After five minutes of Brighton’s game at Goodison Park on Saturday with the score at 0-0, a passionate and extremely vocal Evertonian took the opportunity to run to within five yards of the dugout I was sitting in and vent his anger and frustration by screaming “Get out of my fucking club” directly at Sam Allardyce – the man who, in my opinion, has successfully done the job required and expected of him. The Everton manager has stabilised a huge club that had lost its way to the point where relegation was a distinct possibility based on the performances and results before his arrival in November.
He has utilised his extensive experience and steadied a rocky ship by winning home games with his organised, methodical and pragmatic style of play. Everton are in a mid-table position where only a catastrophe would drag them into a relegation dogfight.
The fact Guardiola is winning with style is increasing the demands on Mourinho, Allardyce and many other managers in the Premier LeagueContinue reading...
