Royal Blue: Rom's return, Gomes' replacement, and the chances of Everton going Dutch again

Friday, 19 April

If Everton needed any additional motivation to bounce back from last weekend's disappointing defeat at Fulham, then the sight of Manchester United rocking up at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon should do it. Particularly given the travelling party is expected to contain the Blues' all-time Premier League top-scorer Romelu Lukaku, who would be making a first return to his former club. And that topic dominates the first part of the Royal Blue podcast, hosted by Phil Kirkbride and featuring Dave Prentice, Adam Jones and Sam Carroll. The panel discuss the reaction Lukaku is likely to receive, whether he's improved as a player since signing for United, and whether Everton should or would take him back. One man the Blues will be desperate to have back next season is Andre Gomes. But with the on-loan midfielder suspended on Sunday, who should come in to replace him? Prenno, Adam and Sam have their say before talk turns to the future of Jonjoe Kenny, in the week in which the Under-23s lifted the Premier League 2 title for the second time in three years. And before the usual score predictions, Phil asks whether Everton should re-enter the Eredivisie market this summer. It was a move that ended badly with the acquisition of Davy Klaassen, but with Marcel Brands and not Steve Walsh on board, and given the way Ajax are playing in the Champions League, is going Dutch worth exploring once again? It's a good debate, which include a very interesting anecdote about Ronald Koeman from Prenno. Enjoy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
