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 Tommy "TG" Jones and Colin Harvey, two former Everton legends - one a defender, one a midfielder - both graceful, classy and the epitome of what Everton is all about.
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 Claus Thomsen who have 'starred' in the 'Apart From ...' feature!

Royle, Young, Reid, Sharp, Watson, Lyons, Ball, Jones, Southall, Hickson, Kendall, Latchford, Labone, Sagar, Ratcliffe, Dean

So, Here We Go Again! ...

- .... it'll be our 117th League season
- our 113th in the Top Flight (the 61st in succession) and our 23rd in the Premier League

- and where will I be for the first 2 games? In Spain. Don't even ask

- so here is a preview of both of our opening matches
- with the site to be updated again some time after the Arsenal clash

- first up is Leicester on August 16th

- we've had 7 previous outings on that date and we have a W0 D1 L4 record in the last 5
- the most recent one was this 3-2 home defeat to Blackburn in 2008
- our last win on that date was way back in 1972 - a 1-0 victory at Man City

- it'll be our 100th meeting in all competitions with Leicester
- get your money on a draw ...
- ... in our 16 previous Premier League encounters we have a W4 D11 L1 record

- although ... we've currently gone 19 matches without a draw in all games against all opponents
- that's a W12 D0 L7 record
- we haven't gone that long without a draw since March 1968!

- that was part of a 23 match spell without drawing!
- not as long as our record run, though, which was a 26 game span ending in October 1958

- our last game with Leicester ended 1-1 at their place in March 2004
- Wayne Rooney scored for us and soon-to-be Everton player Marcus Bent equalised in injury time
- the game was, however, overshadowed by the tragic death of Everton fan Bernard Murphy
- Bernard was killed on his way to the ground by flying debris in high winds
- spare a thought for his family on Saturday

- our last win at Leicester, by the way, came via the late Gary Speed's last minute penalty in December 1997

- the Leicester game is, of course, our first match of the season
- we've drawn one and won one of our last 2 season openers
- but we lost all of the previous 4, giving us a 1-1-4 recent record
- our last away win in our first game came in 2001 with a 2-1 win at Charlton

- we kick-off at Leicester at 3.00pm, which is good news. Why? ...

- ... because we've won all of our last 8 matches that kicked-off at the time!
- it's actually only 6 if you don't count 2 games from last season that form part of that stat
- first, the 3.07pm start at Sunderland last April that marked the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy
- second, the FA Cup game with QPR last January that had a delayed 3.10pm kick-off

- the picture is even better if we look at just 3.00pm kick-offs on a Saturday
- we've won 9 on the run at that start time/day combination
- and we have a 13-4-0 record in the last 17 such outings

- in fact the winning run stands at 12 if you remove the draw at Crystal Palace in Nov 2013
- that had a scheduled 3.00pm kick-off but was delayed to 3.15pm
- and the run is 10 if you also don't count the Sunderland and QPR matches mentioned above

- aren't statistics confusing?!

- if Seamus Coleman starts at Leicester it'll be his 100th Premier League start for us

- and Sylvain Distin will be 36 years and 243 days old on the day of the match
- if he plays he'll become the 15th oldest Everton player ever
- if he plays a week later against Arsenal he'll be the 14th oldest!

- there have been 5 sendings-off in previous Everton-Leicester matches
- and, curiously, all 5 were Everton players!
- Big Dunc (twice), Vinny Samways, Colin Harvey and Dave Hickson were the bad boys in question

- our second game of the season is the Goodison Park curtain-raiser with Arsenal on August 23rd

- we have a W4 D1 L1 record in our last 6 outings on that date
- the defeat came in our last Aug 23 game - 1-0 at Burnley in 2009
- our last win came the year before that in a 2-1 victory at West Brom

- we've had 2 previous Aug 23 run-outs with Arsenal - and lost both!
- 2-0 at home in 1995 and 1-0 at Highbury in 1977

- it'll be our 203rd meeting with Arsenal in all competitions
- that makes it our 3rd most played fixture - after Liverpool (222) and Aston Villa (216)

- a defeat this time round would be our 100th against the Gunners home and away in all competitions
- counting only those teams we've played against more than 4 times ...
- ... Arsenal are our least favourite oppponents!

- more positively, our last meeting was last season's 3-0 hammering of them in April

- so far Everton have had 864 players in their competitive history, 846 of whom have started a game
- in League games only the totals are 847 and 826 - in the Premier League it's 187 and 171

- will those figures change?
- not long now until we find out!

- to end with, a reminder of last season's headline stats:

- 21 Premier League wins
- that's our best ever in the Prem and the most since the 26 we achieved in 1986/87
- that was a 42-game season, by the way

- 13 home Premier League wins
- that's our record Prem total and the most since the 14 we achieved in 1989/90

- 72 League points
- that's our best total in the Premier League and the most since the 86 we racked up in 1986/87
- and that was in 42 games too!

- 42 home League points
- that equals our Prem record, achieved the season before
- and it's the best since 1989/90 when we managed 45

- 61 goals scored in the Premier League
- that's our best since the 64 we reached in 1995/96

- 38 home League goals scored
- that's our best ever Prem total, beating the 36 we scored at Goodison in 1999/00
- and it's the most since the 40 we notched at Goodison in 1989/90

- 16 goals in all competitions for Romelu Lukaku
- that's the best since Yakubu's 21 in
2007/08

- 15 League goals for Rom
- that equals the Yak's total in 2007/08
- and is the most since Andrei Kanchelskis hit 16 in 1995/96
- it also takes Rom level with Wayne Rooney in 23rd place on our All-Time Prem Scorers' chart

- 15 clean sheets in the League
- that equals our 2nd best ever haul in the Premier League
- the best we've ever achieved is 17 Prem clean sheets, back in 2008/09


- an average home League attendance of 37,732
- that's up on last season's 36,356 and our highest since 2003/04 when we averaged 38,837

- not a bad first campaign under Roberto Martinez's guidance, then!
- let's hope for even more improvement in his second

Notable Forthcoming Anniversaries and Milestones



Seamus Coleman needs 1 more start to reach 100 for us in the Prem - so far he's on 99
