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 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!
SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTING DRAW AT MIDDLESBROUGH ...
- ... but we are now unbeaten
in our last 8 Premier League games - W5 D3 L0
- we haven't managed a run that long that since a 10-game sequence
ending in December
- the draw brought to an end a 4-game winning run against the
Boro, home and away in all competitions
- and also a run of 3 straight wins at their place
- but it continued our good overall recent record against them
- we're now unbeaten in our last 9 encounters - W6 D3 L0
- but we really need to sort out our first half performances away
- in our last 19 away games our half-time position has been W0
D12 L7 - F5 A17
- all of those 19 games have been in the Prem too!
- the goalless draw at the Riverside was, by the way, our first
0-0 since Palace
away in April 2016
- it ended a run of 34 games without one for us in all competitions
- Ramiro Funes Mori and Joel Robles both made their 50th starts
for us in all competitions at the Riverside
- congratulations to them!
- and Aaron Lennon played his 50th Premier League game for us
- he's the 84th
Everton player to reach that landmark!
- Seamus Coleman made his 202nd League appearance for us
- he's moved to 72nd place alone on All-Time
League Appearances chart
- he's 1 ahead now of 1880s/90s winger Alf Milward and 1950s keeper
- and so on to Sunderland at home on February 25th!
- it will be our 950th
Premier League game, home and away!
- we've never played the Mackems on that date before
- and we lost on our last Feb 25 outing
- that was a 3-0
defeat at Sporting Lisbon in 2010 that sent us out of the
Europa League 4-2 on aggregate
- our last win on February 25th came at
Man City, 2-0, in 2008
- our last home game on that date was the
memorable 1-0 win against Man Utd in 1995
- Big Dunc got the winner, took his shirt off and waved it around,
you may remember!
- we beat Sunderland the last time we played them
- that was our 3-0
victory at the Stadium Of Light last September, with Romelu
Lukaku notching a hat-trick
- our last meeting at Goodison Park also included an Everton hat-trick!
- Arouna Koné (remember him!) scored 3 times in our 6-2
win in November 2015
- that was our only home victory in Sunderland's last 3 trips
to our place
- they'd won on their previous 2 visits - 2-0
in May 2015 and 1-0
in December 2013
- another Sunderland goal this time round would be their 100th
in the League at our place
- and we need to beware Jermain Defoe!
- he's scored 6 times against us previously in the Premier League
(for Portsmouth, Spurs & the Mackems)
- another one this time would move him to joint 10th on the Most
Prem Goals Against Everton chart
- oh, and he's scored in Sunderland's last 2 visits to Goodison
- David Moyes is, of course, the current Sunderland manager
- he will be the 5th different Black Cats manager in their most
recent 5 trips to our place!
- his Sunderland predecessors in their last 4 games at Goodison
were Allardyce, Advocaat, Poyet & O'Neill!
- if he plays against Sunderland it will be Leighton Baines' 300th
League appearance for the club!
- he'll be the 23rd Everton player to reach that milestone in
our League history
- and he'll be joint 22nd with legendary 1900s winger Jack Sharp
on our All-Time
League Apps chart
- if Phil Jagielka plays against Sunderland it will be his 280th
League game for the club
- he'd be in 28th place alone on that chart, 1 ahead of 1910s/20s
winger Sam Chedgzoy
- in terms of just the Premier League, Leighton will become only
player to play 300 games for us!
- Tim Howard (354), Leon Osman (352) and David Unsworth (302)
are the others
- if Leighton starts against the Mackems it will be his
284th League start for the club
- he'd move to joint 25th on our All-Time
League Starts chart level with 1900s/10s half-back Harry Makepeace
- if Kevin Mirallas comes on as a substitute against Sunderland
it will be his 41st Prem sub appearance for us
- he'd be in joint 7th place with Stuart Barlow on our All-Time
Premier League Sub Apps chart
- Gareth Barry, by the way, will be 36 years and 2 days old on
the day of the Sunderland game
- if he plays, he'll become the 24th
player aged 36 or older to play for the club, the 23rd in
- 1 goal for Romelu Lukaku against the Black Cats would be his
79th for us in all competitions
- he'd move to joint 21st with the legendary Alan Ball on our
- it would also be his 60th for us in the League
- he'd then be joint 1st on our All-Time
Prem Scoring chart, level with Duncan Ferguson!
- at the other end of the pitch, another clean sheet for Joel
Robles would be his 131⁄2th for
us in the League
- see our Most
League Clean Sheets chart for where he got that 1⁄2
- Joel (if he plays!) would move ahead of Bobby Mimms & into
23rd place on that list if Sunderland fail to score
- hopefully we won't draw 0-0 again, though!
- the last time we had successive scoreless draws was back in
- 0-0 at
home to Spurs was followed by the same score at
- a win against Sunderland would be our 12th
overall so far in this Premier League campaign
- that would be 1 more than last season and the same as 2014/15
- it would also be our 8th at home in the Prem this season
- that would be our best return since the 13 Goodison League victories
- a win would also be our 4th in a row in the Premier League at
- the last time we managed that was in Mar/Apr
2015, a run that was ended, coincidentally, by Sunderland!
- if we avoid defeat against Sunderland it will take our unbeaten
run in the Prem to 9 games
- we haven't managed that since a 10-game sequence ending in December
- and if don't lose it will mean we will be undefeated in the
first 7 League games of 2017
- the last time we were unbeaten in the first 7 games of a calendar
year was in 2008
- we actually started that year with a 9 match unbeaten run in
the League (W7 D2 L0)
- our manager at the time was of course a certain David Moyes!
- there have been just 5 previous sendings-off in all of Everton's
meetings with Sunderland, home and away
- and only 1 of them was an Everton player - Tim Howard at
Goodison in December 2013!
- a Sunderland red card this time round ...
- ... would be the 50th
dismissal for an opposition player at Goodison in the Premier
- some penalty facts:
- if either side miss a penalty it will be the 150th
unsuccessful spot-kick in League games at our ground!
- if Sunderland miss one, it will be the 50th missed penalty by
the opposition in all games at our place!
- if we score a penalty, it will be our 300th success from the
spot in all competitions at home!
- and if Leighton Baines scores from a pen against Sunderland
it will be his 24th spot-kick success for us
- he'd move out on his own at the top of our 'Most
Penalties Scored' chart
- he's currently level on 23 (from 26 taken) with David Unsworth
(also from 26) and Trevor Steven (from 29)
- there's a new section on the website!
