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!
BRIGHTON SEEN OFF FAIRLY COMFORTABLY IN THE END ...
... and it was our 3rd home win
on the run
- and we also ended our 10 match run in all competitions, home
and away, without a clean sheet!
- that clean sheet was Jordan Pickford's 7th
for us in the Premier League
- that's the same amount that Steve Simonsen reached for us!
- it was our first ever home Premier League meeting with Brighton
- they became the 48th
different team to play us at Goodison in the Prem!
- and we've still never lost at home to the
- our full record in all
competitions against them at Goodison is now W4 D2 L0
- and in the League it is W3 D2 L0
- the match was, of course, a Saturday fixture
- in our last 13 home Saturday games in all competitions our record
is now a very good W10 D2 L1!
- and in the last 19 in the League at Goodison on a Saturday our
record is now W13 D5 L1!
- it was also, strangely, our 5th Saturday match in a row, home
- that hadn't happened before since February/March
2014, when one of the games was an FA Cup tie!
- counting just League games, it hadn't happened since August/September
- the margin of victory against Brighton could have been bigger
- Wayne Rooney's effort was his 3rd unsuccessful spot-kick this
- the last Everton player to miss 3 in a season was Alan
Ball back in 1968/69!
- Wayne also missed a penalty in his first spell at the club -
in the League Cup in December 2002
- only 10 other Everton players have missed
more than 4 penalties in their Everton careers!
- Wayne's 4 misses have come from 7 that he's taken for us - a
57.1% failure rate - not a great return!
- and it was the first penalty in an Everton/Brighton fixture
not to be scored!
- there have been just 4 penalties now in
- 2 for us and 2 for them
- between us and our opponents, 6 penalties have now been saved
by goalkeepers this season
- only once before - in
1904/05 - have 6 penalties been saved in Everton fixtures!
- Phil Jagielka made his 370th appearance for us in all competitions
in the Brighton game
- he's now moved 1 ahead of Kevin Sheedy and into 21st place alone
on our all-time
- and Phil was 35 years and 205 days old on the day of the game
- that makes him the
27th oldest player in our history, the 26th in the League
- Jags's Everton playing career has now stretched to 10 years
and 208 days
- and Leighton Baines's now stands at 10 years and 197 days
- they are 35th and 36th respectively on our longest
playing career chart
- Seamus Coleman meanwhile played his 251st
game for us in all competitions
- that's the same figure that Alan Ball and Sandy Brown reached
for the club!
- Leighton Baines's start against Brighton was his 374th
start for us in all competitions
- he's moved into 18th place alone on our all-time
starts list, 1 ahead of the legendary Tommy Wright
- it was also Bainesy's 310th League start for us
- he's now level in joint 17th place with Brian Harris on our
League starts chart
- and so on to Stoke away on March
- we've never played Stoke before in a March 17th match
- and our last outing on that date was a 1-1
home draw with Sunderland in 2012 in the FA Cup Quarter-Final
- we went on to win the replay at the Stadium of Light 2-1
ten days later
- our last away game on March 17th was a
1-0 loss at Southampton at their former ground, The Dell,
- and we have a poor away record overall on this date: W1 D2 L8
in 11 outings in the past, all in the League
- the only win came at Blackburn, 2-1,
way back in 1906!
- our last win anywhere on March 17th came in a 4-0
home victory against Crystal Palace in 1990
- one other interesting March 17th fact
- in 1993 Robert
Warzycha scored in Poland's 2-2 away friendly draw with Brazil
- that made him the first Everton player from outside the UK and
the RoI to score an international goal!
- we beat Stoke the last time we met them
- it was our first
League game of this season back in August
- with Wayne Rooney memorably scoring the winner on this Premier
League return to the club!
- we've only lost 1 of our last 4 meetings with the Potters, home
and away, - W3 D1 L0
- the one draw came in our last visit to their place in
- our last win at their ground came via a
3-0 victory in February 2016
- but that was our only win at
their place in our last 8 trips - W1 D5 L2
- overall, in 9 visits to Stoke in the Premier League, 5 have
resulted in draws - W2
D5 L2 - F10 A10
- very well balanced!
- a win this time round would give us our first League
'double' of the season!
- not since 1997/98 have we gone through an entire season without
- if he plays at the bet365 Stadium it will be Seamus Coleman's
appearance for us in all competitions
- 1 more than both Alan Ball and Sandy Brown managed!
- if Phil Jagielka plays it will be his 308th
League appearance for us - the same as Tommy Wright.
- and if Phil starts it will be his 350th
start for us in all competitions!
- can we keep another clean sheet?!
- if Jordan Pickford manages one at Stoke it will be his 10th
for us in all competitions
- he'd be the 30th
Everton 'keeper to achieve that figure.
- 1 goal conceded, however, would take us to 32
away from home in the League this season
- that would be the most since the 37 we shipped in 2003/04 when
we finished 17th!
- a defeat at Stoke would be our 350th,
home and away, in the Premier League
- it would also be our 6th on the run away from home in the League
- something that hasn't happened since a run of 8 (a joint club
- which straddled the end
of the 1993/94 and the beginning
of the 1994/95 seasons
- in all competitions a defeat would be our 7th in succession
away from home
- that's something that we haven't managed since December
- a draw, meanwhile, would be our 150th
away from home in the Premier League
- Paul Lambert is the Stoke manager, of course
- he's managed 7 times against us in the past (with Norwich and
Aston Villa) and is yet to win a game!
- W0 D3 L4
- Lambert will become the 22nd
person to manage 3 different teams against us in the Prem,
by the way
- a penalty for Stoke 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 Stoke 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 at Stoke would set a new club record!
- if either Stoke or ourselves see a penalty saved or missed ...
- it will be the 150th
unsuccessful spot-kick in all of our away League games
- and if Stoke fail to convert a penalty ...
- it would be the 100th missed by our opponents in all of our
away League games!
- perhaps surprisingly ...
- there have only ever been 2
sendings-off in all of the previous 132 Everton/Stoke fixtures
- and they were both Stoke players!
- George Berry was the last - at their old Victoria Ground in
- the match is, of course, a Saturday fixture
- our last 5 away games on a Saturday have given us this record:
W0 D0 L5.
- oh, dear!
- in fact we've won 0 of the last 10 away on a Saturday - W0 D3
L7 - and just 1 of the last 16 - W1 D4 L11
- the solitary away Saturday victory in that spell came at Crystal
Palace in the League in January 2017
- oh, and this will be our 6th 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)!
