Royal Blue: The Everton FC Podcast
Royal Blue: Carlo's tactical masterclass | European hopes | New kit & new signing!
Friday, 3 July
From Carlo Ancelotti's tactical "masterclass" to a new kit and a new signing, there's plenty packed in to this edition of the Royal Blue podcast. Host Phil Kirkbride is joined by Adam Jones and Gav Buckland to look back over a win over Leicester City, look ahead to a trip to Spurs and the future in a new strip and with a new left-back at the club. The panel ask whether the midweek win has flown under the radar and praise Ancelotti's handling of a squad hit by injuries since the lockdown. The chase for Europe is talked about as is a pivotal game in that hunt - Monday night's trip to Spurs. Should the Blues be wary of a wounded Jose Mourinho, who will be smarting from the defeat to Sheffield United? Or is the Portuguese coach not the force he once was? Everton released next season's hummel home kit today, to widespread acclaim, and the lads share in their admiration for the designs. The signing of Niels Nkounkou, a free transfer from Marseille, is discussed as well as what it means in the future for Everton. Also news that Jean-Philippe Gbamin could be back for the start of next term, is also on the agenda.
