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!
AN AWAY WIN! ...
... that's 2 in the League now
- and the victory at Stoke was our first League
'double' of this campaign!
- thank goodness!
- not since 1997/98 had we gone through an entire season without
- and we 've now had back-to-back wins for the first time since
- the victory at the bet365 Stadium also ended a few very poor
away runs for us
- it brought to an end a sequence of 5 away defeats on the run
in the League
- and in all competitions it ended a run of 6 successive losses
away from home
- plus it was our first away victory after 7 matches without one
in all competitions
- we've only lost 1 of our last 5 meetings with the Potters now,
home and away, - W4 D1 L0
- but the win was only our second at
their place in our last 9 trips - W2 D5 L2
- the match was, of course, a Saturday fixture
- prior to the Stoke game, our last 5 away games on a Saturday
have given us this record: W0 D0 L5!
- in fact we'd won 0 of the previous 10 away on a Saturday before
going to Stoke - W0 D3 L7
- and just 1 of the previous 16 - W1 D4 L11!
- the last away Saturday victory in that spell had come at Crystal
Palace in the League in January 2017
- oh, and it was only our second ever away win in a March 17th
- our away record on that date is now W2 D2 L8 in 12 outings in
the past, all in the League
- the only other win came at Blackburn, 2-1,
way back in 1906!
- the goal we conceded at Stoke took us to 32
away from home in the League this season
- that's the most since the 37 we shipped in 2003/04 when we finished
- Charlie Adam was sent off during the game, of course
- his red card meant that we have now seen dismissals in 3
successive Everton games
- Ashley Williams and Anthony Knockaert were the previous two
- that's the first time it's ever happened!
- it did once occur in 4 straight Everton League games - in
- and in 3 on the run too - in
- but both of those runs had Cup games interspersed within them
- and Adam's dismissal was only the third in all 133 Everton/Stoke
- and all have been Stoke players
- George Berry had been the last - at their old Victoria Ground
- the referee who dismissed Adam was Martin Atkinson
- that's the 8th red card he's brandished in Everton fixtures
- 3 for our players and 5 opponents
- only 4
other referees have sent off more players in our games!
- Paul Lambert is the Stoke manager
- he's now managed 8 times against us in the past (with Norwich,
Aston Villa and Stoke)
- and he still hasn't won a game! W0 D3 L5
- Lambert, by the way, is the 22nd
person to manage 3 different teams against us in the Prem
- Cenk Tosun was our hero at Stoke
- he's now scored goals in 3 successive Premier League games
- that's only the
25th time an Everton player has done that!
- Wayne Rooney was the last earlier this season in December 2017
- Romelu Lukaku holds the club record with goals in 7 consecutive
Everton Premier League games!
- he achieved that in November/December 2015
- Seamus Coleman made his 252nd
appearance for us in all competitions at the bet365 Stadium
- that's 1 more than both Alan Ball and Sandy Brown managed!
- for Phil Jagielka it was his 308th League appearance for us
- that's the same as legendary full-back Tommy Wright
- they are joint 21st on our
League appearances chart
- and it was also Phil's 350th
start for us in all competitions!
- he's the 23rd Everton player to reach that milestone
- Leighton Baines made his 311th League start for us at Stoke
- he's now 17th alone on our
League Starts list, 1 ahead of 1950s/60s utility man Brian
- and so on to Man City at home on
- we've never played the Mancs on that date before
- but we did win on our last March 31 outing - 2-0
at home to West Brom in 2012
- in all we've played 7 home games in the past on March 31
- and we've lost 0 of them! W5 D2 L0, all in the League
- we've also played 2 FA Cup Semi-Finals in the past on this date
- in 1906 we
beat Liverpool 2-0 at Villa Park
- that was on our way to winning the trophy a month later against
Newcastle at the old Crystal Palace
- 4 years later in
1910 we played Division 2 Barnsley at Old Trafford in the
FA Cup Semi-Final replay
- it turned into a disaster for us!
- the legendary Jack Taylor was struck in the throat after 15
minutes and had to retire with a damaged larynx
- we were down to 10 men (no subs in those days!) - and Taylor
never played professional football again
- after 41 minutes our skipper Jack Sharp saw a penalty saved
(Barnsley had themselves put one wide 2 minutes earlier!)
- Ernest Gadsby put Barnsley one up 3 minutes into the second
- but our 'keeper Billy Scott damaged his fingers when the goal
was scored and had to retire for 10 minutes
- in the last 5 minutes Barnsley added a further 2 goals against
a tired and demoralised Everton
- and then Scott retired again with 3 minutes left
- not a good day at the office!
- we drew
with Citeh 1-1 on our last meeting
- that was back in August with Wayne Rooney scoring our goal in
our first away League game of the season
- Kyle Walker and then Morgan Schneiderlin were both later sent
- our last home encounter with them was the
memorable 4-0 victory in January 2017
- who can forget Tom Davies' and Ademola Lookman's late goals
- both their first for the club!
- we've got a good recent record against Man City
- W2 D3 L1 in our last 6 meetings in all competitions, home and
- at Goodison we've won on each of their last 2 visits
- they were the 4-0 game mentioned above and January 2016's 2-1
League Cup Semi-Final 1st Leg victory
- in their last 9 visits in all competitions, our record is W6
- and in all
of their Premier League trips to our place it is W11 D5 L4
- and, perhaps surprisingly, we've never lost to a Pep Guardiola-managed
- he's taken charge of City 3 times against us previously - and
his record is W0 D2 L1
- 2 goals against City (we can hope!) would take us to 150 against
them at home in all League meetings
- and our current record against them in all competitions at all
venues is very well-balanced
- it looks like this: W68 D47 L68 - F247 A247!
- a defeat this time would be our 350th,
home and away, in the Premier League
- if he plays against Man City it will be Phil Jagielka's 309th
League appearance for us
- he'd move 1 ahead of legendary full-back Tommy Wright
- Phil would be in 21st place alone on our
League appearances chart
- Jags will be 35 years and 226 days old on the day of the City
- if he plays he will become the
26th oldest player in our history, the 25th in the League
- Phil will be 1 day older than Howard Kendall was when he played
his final game for the club!
- that was a
2-1 FA Cup 3rd Round defeat at West Ham in January 1982 when
Howard was our player-manager
- can we keep a clean sheet against City?
- if Jordan Pickford manages one it will be his 10th for us in
- he'd be the 30th
Everton 'keeper to achieve that figure
- and can Cenk Tosun keep on scoring?!
- if he does notch another one it will mean goals for him in 4
consecutive Premier League games
- Everton players have only managed that 5
- the men achieving it were Romelu Lukaku (twice), Francis Jeffers,
Kevin Campbell and Andrei Kanchelskis
- Lukaku holds the club record with goals in 7 consecutive Everton
Premier League games!
- he achieved that in November/December 2015
- Easter isn't the festival of footballing fun that it once was
- we last played 2 games over the holiday period in 2011/12
- and the last time we played 3 Easter games was back in 1977/78
- 3 in 4 days, in fact!
- however, we haven't lost an Easter match since 2011 - 1-0
at Man Utd
- since then our record is W5
- our most recent one was the 3-1
home win against Burnley last April
- and we're currently on a run of 5 wins in a row!
- that's the longest winning Easter run in our history!
- the last time we played Man City over the Easter period was
lost 2-1 at home to Peter Reid's side!
- the City game is live
on UK television on BT Sport
- we've lost all of our last 6 games shown live on UK TV!
- another defeat this time would equal our record run of live
- we 'achieved' that earlier this season in October/November!
- a penalty for City would be the 10th
for our opponents so far this season.
- that would equal the club record set in 1976/77!
- and if we save a City penalty it will be the 4th
pen save this season by an EFC keeper
- Jordan Pickford saved one at
Hadjuk Split in August and against
West Ham at Goodison in November
- and Joel Robles kept one out against
Atalanta also in November
- our keepers have saved 3 pens in a season several times before
(most recently in 2009/10)
- but we've never had a season when Everton keepers have saved
- between us and our opponents, 6 penalties have been saved by
goalkeepers this season
- that's only ever happened once before in our history - in 1904/05!
- another save this time would set a new club record!
- Sergio Aguero has missed 2 penalties against us in his career
- the first was at
the Etihad back in October 2013 when he hit the post
- although the ball did then rebound onto the back of Tim Howard's
head and went in for an own goal!
- the second was also at
the Etihad in October 2016 when Maarten Stekelenburg saved
- Skelenburg had also saved a Kevin De Bruyne penalty earlier
in the same game!
- will Aguero be unsuccessful with another spot-kick this time?
- if he does it will be the first time an opposition player has
ever missed 3 penalties against us!
- he is currently one
of 14 players who has missed 2 pens against Everton
- the match is, of course, a Saturday fixture
- we've done well lately in Saturday home games
- we've won each of our last 2 and are unbeaten in our last 6
at Goodison on a Saturday - W4 D2 L0
- going further back our record in our last 13 home Saturday matches
is W10 D2 L1
- the only defeat in that run was the 3-0
loss to Tottenham last September
- and just counting League games our record in the last 19 Saturday
games at Goodison is W13 D5 L1
- but we don't like 5.30pm kick-offs very much!
- home and away, our record in the last 6 (whatever day of the
week) is W0 D0 L6!
- and in the last 8 it is W1 D0 L7
- however, 5 of those most recent 6 defeats came in away games
kicking off at 5.30pm
- our last one at home was a Monday game on New Year's Day this
year when we lost
2-0 to Man Utd
- but the last 2 Saturday 5.30pm kick-offs at Goodison have seen
us record 2 victories
- the most recent was the 3-1
win over Middlesbrough in September 2016
- oh, and this will be our 7th Saturday game in succession, home
and away, all in the League!
- that hasn't happened since October
2011 (in the League) and May
2011 (in all competitions)!
