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 Howard Kendall and Ted Sagar,
two former Everton legends - one a top midfielder and the most successful
manager in our history, the other one of England's best ever keepers.
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!
A New Season Approaches Full Of Hope And Optimism ...
- ... we're after the League and
we're after the Cup!
- Everton are on the up and up!
- hmmm, well, we'll see!
- in a perfect example of crap planning, I'll be out of the country
for Everton's first two fixtures
- so let's have a look at both of those games
- first up are Watford at home on August 8th
- we've played just twice before on that date, losing neither
- the last one was this
1-1 Goodison draw with Man Utd in the 1999/00 League season
- the other one was a
2-1 Charity Shield win at Chelsea in 1970
- we like playing Watford!
- we've won all of our last 9 meetings with the Hornets, home
- and at Goodison Park, we've won every time they've visited -
also 9 wins out of 9 in all competitions!
- our overall record against them in all meetings is W17 D1 L2
- F48 A22
- no wonder then that they are our favourite
opponents, home & away, in all competitions!
- (on a points per game basis and only including teams we've met
more than 6 times)
- they are also our all-time favourite
Premier League opponents, home & away
- and our favourite
home opponents, in all competitions (teams with more than
- our last match against Watford was at their place in February
2007 - a
3-0 victory for us
- the last Goodison encounter was also a season opener - a
2-1 win back in August 2006
- Watford's last win against Everton was back in March 1987,
2-1 to them at Vicarage Road
- we still won the League that season, though!
- if he plays against Watford it will be Phil Jagielka's 294th
appearance for us in all competitions
- that will be 1 more than Gary Stevens managed
- Jags would move to 40th position alone on our All-Time
- it would also be Jags' 243rd League game for us - 1 more than
Phil Neville achieved
- Jags would move to 43rd place on his own on our All-Time
League Appearances list
- and 6th place alone on our All-Time
Premier League Appearances chart
- if Romelu Lukaku plays it will be his 68th Premier League appearance
for us, the same as Tony Cottee
- they'd be joint 58th on that Prem apps list
- whereas Gareth Barry, if he plays against Watford, would move
to 66 Everton Prem games
- he'd be level with Anders Limpar in equal 62nd position on that
- if Phil Jagielka starts against Watford it will be his
231st League start for the club
- that's the same as Howard Kendall and Derek Temple
- they'd be level in 47th place on our All-Time
League Starts chart
- if Leon Osman scores in the Watford game, by the way, it would
be his 45th Everton League goal
- that's the same number that Kevin Campbell notched for us
- they'd be joint 43rd on our All-Time
League Goals list and joint 3rd on our All-Time
Prem Scoring chart
- Tim Howard will be 36 years & 155 days old on the day of
the Watford game
- if he plays he will be the 19th
oldest player to play for us in all competitions
- the Watford match is, of course, our first game of the new season
- we've drawn both of our last 2 season openers 2-2 - at
Leicester last year and at
Norwich the year before
- our last opening day victory came the season before that
- it was the 1-0
Goodison win over Man Utd in August 2012
- our last defeat in our first game of the season was at
home to QPR in August 2011
- you can see details of all of our previous opening day escapades
- 2 goals for us against Watford would take us to 50 against them
in all meetings
- and it would also take us to 150 in all games under Roberto
- 2 goals conceded, on the other hand, would be 2,500 against
us at home in our League history
- a defeat against Watford would be our 3rd loss on the run at
home in the Premier League
- that would equal our worst such run - something we've 'achieved'
on 6 previous occasions
- the last time was in
- if we fail to score v. Watford that would also be a run of 3
blanks for us in home matches, all in the Prem
- we've managed that 15 times before in all games
- our worst in just Premier League home games is a run of 5 games
without a goal from Aug-Oct
- and a quirky Watford fact!
- we've scored goals in the 90th minute or later in each of our
last 3 games against the Hornets!
- Leon Osman in the 92nd minute in
Feb 2007, Steve Watson in the 91st minute in
- and Alan Stubbs in the 90th minute in
Aug 2006 - unfortunately for Stubbsy it was an own goal!
- like all 8 of our previous home League games versus Watford,
this one will be a 3.00pm Saturday kick-off
- hopefully we can keep up an amazing run .....
- .....we have lost 0 of our last 33 home games kicking off at
3.00pm on a Saturday!
- the run is W24 D9 L0 since
QPR beat us in August 2011!
- and the record is W25 D9 L0 if we include the delayed FA Cup
v. QPR in Jan 2014!
- after the visit of Watford, next up for Everton is a trip to
Southampton on August 15
- we've played 6 times on that date in the past - all at home
and never against Southampton
- and we've only won once - W1 D3 L2!
- we've lost our last 2 August 15 outings - both at home to Arsenal
1-6 in 2009 and
1-4 in 2004
- thank god we're not playing the Gooners, then!
- our last (and only) August 15 win came against
Norwich in 1987
- we won on our last meeting with Southampton -
1-0 at Goodison last April
- but away from home our recent record against the Saints is very
- we've lost on our last 2 visits to their place - and we haven't
scored in our last 3!
- we have a W0 D3 L2 record in our last 5 trips and W1 D5 L8 in
our last 14 games at their ground(s)
- last season's game at St Mary's ended in a
0-3 defeat in December
- we don't do ourselves any favours at St Mary's
- 3 of the last 5 goals we've conceded there have been own goals!
- the culprits were Romelu Lukaku last season and Antolin Alcaraz
& Seamus Coleman the season before
- our last win at Southampton came back
in April 2002 courtesy of Steve Watson's winner
- finally for now, a look back at last season's disappointing
- final position, 11th - our lowest since we also finished 11th
- league points, 47 - our fewest since 39 in 2003/04
- league wins, 12 - our fewest since the 9 we managed in that
- home league wins, 7 - our worst total since the 6 we managed
- league defeats, 15 - the most since the 16 we suffered when
we last finished 11th in 2005/06
- league goals conceded, 50 - the most since we shipped 57 in
- and despite all of that, we ended the campaign with an average
home League attendance of 38,406
- that's our highest since the very poor 2003/04 season when we
finished 17th and yet averaged 38,837!
- what is it about disappointing seasons that drags more of us
to Goodison Park every other week?!!
- let's hope it's success that attracts us along this season!
- there's a couple of new sections now on the website, by the
- John Stones is set to be our latest Number 5 (if he stays!)
- so, why not have a look at all of the previous Evertonians who
for us as a Number 5
- and why not immerse yourself in finding out how
we fared during World War I?!
- all of the usual comprehensive stats are there for each of the
4 seasons that we played during the Great War
Notable Forthcoming Anniversaries and Milestones
Leighton Baines needs 2 more starts
to reach 250 for us in the Prem - so far he's made 248
Steven Naismith needs 2 more starts to reach 50 for us
in the Premier League - he's currently on 48
