Royal Blue: The Everton FC Podcast
Royal Blue: Reflecting on Man City defeat and finding reasons to be quietly confident for the derby
Friday, 19 February
It’s that time again – the Merseyside derby at Anfield. But before getting stuck into the trip across Stanley Park, Phil Kirkbride, Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland examine Everton’s midweek defeat to Manchester City and the reaction to it. But, in the main, the latest Royal Blue podcast focuses on Liverpool v Everton on Saturday night. With no home supporters present, and with Liverpool suffering from poor home form and a lack of fit and available defenders, can Everton supporters be quietly confident about winning at their biggest rivals for the first time since 1999? The panel discuss that as well as the big team selection decisions facing Carlo Ancelotti – including who plays centre-back, whether Allan comes straight back into the side, and whether the Blues boss should go with two up front in an attempt to pressurise Liverpool’s makeshift defence. Enjoy.
