Royal Blue: Richarlison return, formation change and room for improvement as Everton return to winning ways

Everton finally got back to winning ways on Sunday....just about. A Dominic Calvert-Lewin double and an Abdoulaye Doucoure header were enough to secure a 3-2 win over Fulham after what was an extremely nervy second half. There were a good number of positives to take from the match but still clear room for improvement, making for some interesting conversation. Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice, Gav Buckland and Connor O'Neill to discuss Everton's formation change, defensive issues, Richarlison's return and Dominic Calvert-Lewin's incredible scoring run. Lots for the lads to talk about as ever!

Phil Kirkbride is joined by Adam Jones and Gav Buckland to discuss whether Everton can back to winning ways and if the potential of a five-substitute rule could benefit the Blues at all.

Royal Blue: International break injury, formation dilemma and your Everton questions answered

View From The Gwladys Street: Rodriguez central role a must, the Gordon question and the Ancelotti concern

No win in four. Defeats in the last three. Nine goals conceded in four games. Key players injured or suspended. From first to seventh in less than a month. It’s been quite a painful few weeks. Host Ian Croll is joined by Mark Crotty and Neil Leahey for this week’s View from the Glwadys Street fan podcast to pick through the wreckage of the last four games. The Manchester United defeat is high on the agenda but the talk turns to more than that and how the Blues have ended up in this mini slump. Decisions from Ancelotti have come into question. With key players missing he’s unfortunately had to work with what he’s got, but could he have done more? The balance of the squad comes into question as the lads discuss and debate which formation currently suits the players Ancelotti has at his disposal. As with every fan podcast, the lads finish off with a positive despite what has been a torrid few weeks.

Royal Blue: Defensive problems, midfield dilemma and Everton's loss to Manchester United discussed

Everton unfortunately fell to their third straight defeat on Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 loss to Manchester United. A Bruno Fernandes double and a late Edinson Cavani strike gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side all three points against a lacklustre Blues, who had initially taken the lead through Bernard. Carlo Ancelotti had key players back for the game, so what went wrong? Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice, Gav Buckland and Connor O'Neill to discuss defensive issues, a potential midfield dilemma, fitness concerns and another example of the treatment of Jordan Pickford. Enjoy.

Royal Blue: Isco to help lighten load on James? And has Carlo got goalkeeping call correct?

James Rodriguez, Seamus Coleman, Lucas Digne and Mason Holgate... Everton will be boosted by the return of four key players for tomorrow's visit of Manchester United to Goodison Park. But with Carlo Ancelotti admitting at his pre-match press conference that Rodriguez is not fully fit, the Royal Blue podcast wonder whether that underlines just how important the Colombian has already become to Everton? And if he has, do the Blues need more players of Rodriguez's calibre? That leads host Phil Kirkbride and regular guests Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland to discussing the merits of a move for another Real Madrid midfielder, Isco. Talk then turns to United and their under-pressure manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before the podcast ends with a discussion about Ancelotti's decision to recall Jordan Pickford, plus the usual predicitions. Enjoy.

Analysing Everton: Newcastle dissected, United previewed and what Andre Gomes needs to bring the best out of him

The Analysing Everton podcast is back to dissect the disappointing defeat at Newcastle United and ask whether it answered the question that, beyond Carlo Ancelotti’s exciting first-choice starting XI, has he got the strength in depth needed for a push for the top six? One player who Evertonians would have expected to be a regular in Ancelotti’s starting line-up is Andre Gomes. But the Portuguese’s struggles continued at St James’ Park leading our hosts David Hughes and Josh Williams to examine just exactly what he brings to the team and what his best role is. But while Gomes and his team-mates did not do themselves justice for the second match running, did Ancelotti make a rare misstep with his selection and formation? David and Josh talk that then focus on the performance of debutant goalkeeper Robin Olsen, before turning their attention to Saturday’s visit to Goodison Park of Manchester United, whose performance numbers should give the Blues encouragement that they can return to winning ways.
