THE BLUE ROOM
THIS IS NOT
Welcome To Yet Another Everton Website!!!
The purpose of this site is to provide a comprehensive record of the results
of all competitive games played by Everton since their formation, together
with details of player appearances and goals.
There are lots of links on the left that break down the information into
different categories (as explained down below) so go ahead and click on
one and see what you get!
The title bar above currently features Kevin Ratcliffe and Warney Cresswell,
two former Everton legends - both captains, both cultured defenders, both
double title winners, both FA Cup winners.
Click on their photos to see brief details of their Everton careers and
appearances & goals.
The title bar images will change every so often so that you'll get to
see a whole host of Everton greats throughout the months and years ahead.
Images (and career summaries) of previous weeks' legends can be
seen by clicking the 'Previous Legends' link on the left, where you'll
also find a link to take you to details of the less-than-legendary donkeys
like Mike Walker who have 'starred' in the 'Apart From ...' feature!
LATE DRAMA ON THE SOUTH COAST ...
- ... and Wayne Rooney's first
penalty goal for Everton rescued a point
- he's actually taken 1 penalty before for us
- he saw his spot-kick saved by Carlo Cudicini in our 4-1
League Cup defeat at Chelsea in December 2002
- well done to Gavin Buckland!
- he worked out that that's the longest gap between penalties
for an Everton player - 14 years & 315 days!
- it was our first
penalty of the season
- and, incidentally, it was our first ever penalty against Brighton!
- the 2 previous ones awarded in our meetings with them all went
to the Seagulls and both were scored
- the last one was a Gordon Smith spot-kick at their old Goldstone
Ground in April
- and it also came late in the day in another controversial match!
- we were 1-0 up when referee Clive Thomas (yes, him!) awarded
Brighton a dodgy last minute penalty
- Jim Arnold saved it only for Thomas to order a retake claiming
the keeper had moved
- Gordon Smith scored from the re-take and that seemed that
- only for Kevin Sheedy to go straight down the other end and
poke in an even later winner!
- Brighton were the 47th
different opposition in our Premier League history
- Chris Hughton became the 19th
different person to manage 3 or more clubs against Everton
in the Prem!
- before Brighton he'd been
the boss at Newcastle and Norwich in games against Everton
- Sam Allardyce holds the record, having managed 6 different teams
against us in the Premier League!
- they were Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn, West Ham, Sunderland
and Crystal Palace!
- the draw at Brighton ended a run of 3 defeats in succession
for us in all competitions
- and Wayne's goal also ended a run of 3 away matches without
a goal in all comps
- but we have now gone 12 away League games without a win
- that's our worst streak since a run of 13 away League games
without a win from Sep
- our last away win in the Prem came back in January - 1-0
at Crystal Palace
- we've got a long way to go to break the club record, however
- that was a run of 35 successive away League games without a
win from October 1970 to April 1972!
- our Premier League worst was 19 away games without a victory
from December 1996 to December 1997!
- the draw at Brighton did end our recent ropey record in Sunday
- we'd lost all of our previous 5 Sunday games, home and away
- W0 D0 L5, all in the Premier League
- and away from home we'd lost 6 Sunday games on the run! W0 D0
L6 - again all in the Prem
- indeed in our previous 10 away League games on a Sunday
our record had been a terrible W1 D0 L9
- the one win was 2-1
at QPR in March 2015
- oh, and incidentally, the attendance at the Amex was 30,565
- surprisingly, the's the biggest crowd ever for any of our fixtures
- in 11 previous meetings between us the highest attendance had
- that was at Goodison in February 1913 when we beat
them 1-0 after extra-time in the FA Cup
- Leighton Baines made his 388th appearance for us in all competitions
- that's the same as the legendary White Pele, Colin Harvey managed!
- they're now both in joint 18th place on our All-Time
- Phil Jagielka's latest start was his 337th for us in
- he's moved 1 ahead of 1900s half-back Harry Makepeace
- and into 24th place alone on our All-Time
- Kevin Mirallas's latest substitute appearance was his 47th for
us in the League
- that's moved him into joint 7th place, with Stuart Barlow, on
League Sub Apps list!
- Wayne Rooney's goal was his 18th for us in the Premier League
- he's now in joint 20th place on our Premier
League scoring chart
- Wayne is level with Nick Barmby, Seamus Coleman, Francis Jeffers
and Steven Naismith!
- and so on to Olympique Lyonnais at home in the Europa League
on October 19th!
- our last 8 games on October 19th, going back to 1968, have all
been at Goodison Park!
- the most recent one was a 2-1
win against Hull City in the Premier League in 2013
- substitute Steven Pienaar nabbed the winner, having been on
the pitch for just 27 seconds when he scored!
- we've played just 1 European game before on 19th October
- a 0-0
draw against Feyenoord at Goodison in a European Cup Winners
Cup 2nd Round 1st Leg tie in 1995
- the Dutch team that day included a certain Ronald Koeman
- whatever happened to him?!
- we've had one other very memorable game in the past on October
- in 2002 we
beat Arsenal 2-1 with a 90th minute goal
- it was scored by a young lad called (remember the name) Wayne
- and it was, of course, his first goal for the club
- again, whatever happened to him?!
- if Leighton Baines plays against Lyon it will be his 389th appearance
for the club in all competitions
- that would be 1 more than the legendary Colin Harvey managed
- and Leighton would be in 18th place alone on our All-Time
- Tim Howard has made the most
European appearances for Everton - 28
- currently Leighton Baines is in joint 2nd place on that chart,
level with Leon Osman on 25
- Phil Jagielka is in 5th place on 23, 1 behind Tony Hibbert's
- Romelu Lukaku heads our European
scoring chart with 9 goals
- and Phil Jagielka will join Andy Gray in joint 3rd place on
5 if he scores against Lyon!
- Lyon will be the 150th
different opponents that Everton have faced in our competitive
- and they'll be the 143rd at home
- the game will be our 88th
European match, the 44th at home
- our current record at all venues is W46 D19 L22 - F143 A88
- at Goodison it is W29 D8 L6 - F88 A32
- the match is being shown live on UK TV by BT Sport
- but we haven't won any of our last 6 games shown live
on TV in the UK!
- the last time we had a run of 7 'live' games without a win was
back in November
- our worst run was 11 games without a win in live UK TV games
2000 to November 2001
- if we score from a penalty against Lyon it will be the 300th
successful spot-kick at home in our history
(not including penalty shoot-outs!)
- currently we've scored 299 and missed 126 of the 425 we've been
awarded at home!
- and if Lyon miss one it will be the 50th missed by all opponents
at our place in all competitions
- the full opposition record at our ground currently is scored
113, missed/saved 49
