Team of the week: Everton

fotball

The city of Liverpool has another great team to be proud of and that is Everton Football Club. Did you know that Everton is called ‘The Toffees’?

Everton - Osman & coEverton is the only club in England who has played more than 100 seasons in the top division.  Their home ground is at Goodison Park, that’s on the other side of Stanley Park, opposite Anfield. In football, there is often rivalry between local teams. This is also the case between Liverpool and Everton, and matches between the two are known as ‘the Merseyside Derby’.

The most famous Everton player is Dixie Dean, who scored 60 league goals in one season! This was in the 1927-28 season.

Everton - LescottThis season, Everton has bought Anton Peterlin and has got Iain Turner back from Nottingham. David Moyes is their manager, and last season’s winner of ‘Manager of the Year’.

Did you know that Paul McCartney is an Everton fan? His father was actually the chairman in Everton supporter club several years ago (speaking of the Beatles, click here for information about where you can walk in their footsteps).

Next Everton match is on the 13th of September, playing Fulham. After their awful premiership start, could a win in this match turn it around?

    Hi Rolf,

    Football is a huge thing for many people and especially now when Premier League has started again for the season and yesterday England won against Croatia and qualified for the World Cup. This and many other reasons is why we chose to have a ‘Team of the week’ of the Premier League at the moment.

    If you scroll back to previous entries, you’ll se things about London, Manchester, Afternoon tea, cars, Scotish countryside and much more. And of course we are going to write about other stuff during the coming weeks too.

    So keep faith, we will give you much more, besides football in this blog. If you have any special requests or questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are more than willing to help you!

    Best regards,
    Towe
