  • Joey Barton charged for bringing the game into disrepute by FA October 5th, 2006 Everton

    You will be shocked to read that Joey Barton has been charged with bringing the game into disrepute after mooning Everton fans on Saturday.

  • Andy Johnson out of England’s squad for Euro 2008 qualifiers October 2nd, 2006 Everton

    Everton’s Andy Johnson has pulled out of the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2008 qualifying matches against Macedonia and Croatia.

Charlton’s Darren Bent will […]

  • Video of Joey Barton’s moon at Everton fans October 2nd, 2006 Everton

    That Joey. In the words of Captain Mannering, he’s football’s ultimate stupid boy. Still, I hope the FA don’t punish him for this, because as you can see in this video clip, it’s hardly up there with Cantona’s flying karate kick.

    Police are to investigate television pictures which showed Manchester City‘s Joey Barton exposing his backside to Everton fans after yesterday’s match.

  • Liverpool’s Pepe Reina plays a high-profile game of hot potato against Everton September 10th, 2006 Everton

    When you are 2-0 down to your arch-rivals with seconds left to play, surely pride stops you from wanting to concede any more goals. This makes Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina‘s decision to play an injury-time game of hot potato with Andy Johnson even more bizarre. Everton fans, I am sure, could watch this comedy goal […]

  • Wayne Rooney’s autobiography slams David Moyes July 25th, 2006 Everton

    ‘I would have gone almost anywhere just to get away from David Moyes. If no-one had come in I would have joined Newcastle,’ Wayne Rooney ‘wrote’ in My Story So Far, his autobiography serialised in The Daily Mail. Rooney continues: ‘To me he appeared overbearing; just wanting to control people. I suppose being young and […]

  • Everton fans, do you want Materazzi back? July 10th, 2006 Everton

    Video compilation of Marco Materazzi in action. Boy, he makes Duncan Ferguson look like Nigel Clough – he’s also the type of committed, panto villain player who fans love/love to hate…

  • Revealed, what Materazzi said to Zidane July 10th, 2006 Everton

    Having consulted lip-reading experts, I can exclusively reveal what Marco Materazzi said to wind up Zinedine Zidane during last night’s World Cup final (see video below). If you look closely, you’ll see that the Italian hardman definitely said: ‘I played alongside Craig Short for Everton… beat that Jean-Luc Picard…’ UPDATE: In all seriousness, French sports […]
