Adam Jones is joined by Chris Beesley and Gavin Buckland for another positive edition of the Royal Blue podcast! That's because Everton secured their 11th away Premier League win of the season on Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 victory over West Ham United thanks to Dominic Calvert-Lewin's goal. The panel discuss the major improvements on show from the Blues, including standout performances from a lot of players, and look ahead to how they can take that into their next match against Aston Villa. Hope is back, once again...
Phil Kirkbride is joined by Adam Jones and Gav Buckland to look ahead to Everton's crucial tie against West Ham at the weekend. Carlo Ancelotti has admitted he wants to play more attacking football in the future, and he could welcome back Abdoulaye Doucoure for this match, but James Rodriguez is out again. The panel discuss how Everton should set up and talk over the job former Blues boss David Moyes has achieved with the Hammers so far this term. The lads also look at the latest Super League "sanctions" from UEFA and talk over a swoop for James Carragher. Enjoy.
After Everton fell to an eighth Goodison Park defeat of the Premier League season, the Royal Blue podcast is here to react. Host Adam Jones is joined by Chris Beesley, Connor O'Neill and Gav Buckland as they pick through the 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday evening. Amongst the talking points is the nature of the latest defeat for Carlo Ancelotti's side, the creative void left by following an injury to James Rodriguez in the warm-up before getting onto another impressive showing from Jordan Pickford. Enjoy.
Everton welcome Aston Villa to Goodison Park as the race for European qualification in the Premier League heats up. Host Phil Kirkbride is joined by Adam Jones and Gav Buckland to look ahead to the meeting at Goodison, with the Blues looking to build on the win over Arsenal last time out. The panel discuss the importance of European qualification, whether in the Champions League, Europa League or Europa Conference League, plus Josh King’s future, or lack of as well as Abdoulaye Doucoure’s return to training and Finch Farm before finishing by giving their predictions on the action. Enjoy.
Dave Prentice, Sam Carroll and Gavin Buckland join Adam Jones for a positively upbeat Royal Blue podcast after Everton won at Arsenal for the first time in 25 years to boost their hopes of finishing in the European places. It was a win that owed much to a superb late save from Jordan Pickford who, on the quiet, has got back to his best. Ben Godfrey and Mason Holgate were in solid form in front of the England goalkeeper, but going forward, who are Everton's first-choice centre-backs? The panel discuss that, plus the surprise return of Fabian Delph, as well as assessing how the fight for Europe is shaping up. Enjoy.
Dave Prentice, Adam Jones, Gavin Buckland and - belatedly, after a few audio problems - Sam Carroll join Phil Kirkbride for the latest Royal Blue podcast. On the agenda is the fallout from the seeming collapse of the European Super League and whether the breakaway six Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, should still face sanctions despite withdrawing from the despised project. Talk then turns to the new Champions League model, and Carlo Ancelotti's enthusiasm for it, before the panel discuss Marcel Brands' new deal, some of the exciting young talents he is helping bring through the academy, and Friday's crunch clash with fellow European hopefuls Arsenal.
Sunday was a huge day in the footballing world after an announcement was made by 12 clubs over the creation of "The Super League". The proposals have been slammed by fans, pundits and governing bodies over the last 48 hours - and Everton have now thrown their response into the mix. And, as ever, it was fantastic. So Adam Jones is joined by Phil Kirkbride, Dave Prentice and Chris Beesley to discuss the Blues' damning statement, plus the reactions of both Denise Barrett-Baxendale and Farhad Moshiri. The panel also discuss the implications of the proposals and what this all should mean for English football in the future.
After winning a penalty and dictating much of proceedings at Goodison Park on Friday night, Royal Blue is here to assess the importance of James Rodriguez. Host Phil Kirkbride is joined by Adam Jones and Chris Beesley to reflect on the 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur, with the Blues’ European hopes beginning to fade. Having been rested and given time to reach his peak fitness levels, the panel analyse Carlo Ancelotti’s treatment of James Rodriguez and his place amongst some Everton favourites of yesteryear. Gylfi Sigurdsson’s performance is also debated having scored twice against Jose Mourinho’s side before getting onto Alex Iwobi’s stuttering Everton career. Enjoy.
The Royal Blue Podcast returns hours after Adam Jones and Sam Carroll arrived back in Liverpool following their trip to the South Coast for the goalless draw at Brighton and Hove Albion. Adam and Sam are joined by Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland to discuss the game which was marred by injuries to Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Joshua King. With the Everton injury list now the worst in the Premier League, the panel discuss the impact on Marcel Brands' summer transfer plans as well as where Carlo Ancelotti will ideally strengthen. There is also talk around Fabian Delph, Andre Gomes, Richarlison and James Rodriguez. And there is time to mention possibly the only good news of the week so far - the reopening of the pubs. You can follow the Royal Blue Podcast on Facebook to join in the Everton discussion. Enjoy.
Everton are back in action against Brighton on Monday evening, but they could have somewhat of an injury crisis in midfield. Andre Gomes will miss the game while Allan faces a late check on his fitness - with Abdoulaye Doucoure already out of action. So, who will start? And what system will Carlo Ancelotti play? Host Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice, Connor O'Neill and Gavin Buckland to discuss all of that ahead of the trip to the South Coast. The lads also talk over the future of Joshua King, after Ancelotti's interesting comments on the forward's future in Friday's press conference. Enjoy.
Host Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice, Sam Carroll and Gavin Buckland to look back on last night's 1-1 Goodison Park draw with Crystal Palace that meant Everton missed another opportunity to truly close the gap on the Champions League places. The panel marvel at the performance of the goalscorer, James Rodriguez, but lament the finishing of the normally reliable Dominic Calvert-Lewin, as well as Richarlison, and assess whether Carlo Ancelotti got it right with his selection and his substitutions.
The Royal Blue Podcast returns with a positive Good Friday edition. Sam Carroll is joined by Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland as the quartet discuss the return of Jean-Philippe Gbamin, what it means for Everton and their transfer plans, links to Kalidou Koulibaly and the future of Joao Virginia. Gavin also considers the 'unimpressive' decision of the Republic of Ireland to field Seamus Coleman three times in six days during the international break while wondering whether he could keep a clean sheet against San Marino.

Enjoy.

Looking back on what was a truly momentous day in the club’s history, including how the announcement even took Blues officials by surprise, the panel sum up the excitement in the fanbase and also the sadness that one day, not too long in the future now, we will have to leave Goodison Park behind. Enjoy.
Everton are undoubtedly facing a tough test this weekend as Man City visit Goodison Park in the quarter final of the FA Cup.

Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland to discuss Joao Virginia starting in goal and how the Blues can challenge Pep Guardiola's side. The lads also discuss a return to Finch Farm for Jean-Philippe Gbamin after his long-term injury absence and assess how positive the coming weeks can be for the 25-year-old. Expect a certain amount of positivity and some interesting predictions at the end...
The Royal Blue Podcast returns this week to discuss the dismal defeat to Burnley at Goodison Park and where it went wrong for Everton. Sam Carroll is joined by Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland as they debate the 'preferred position' of Alex Iwobi, Mason Holgate as a right-back, the absence of Abdoulaye Doucoure and a 'Jekyll and Hyde' showing from Dominic Calvert-Lewin. There is also time for Dave to briefly lock himself out of the video call while Gavin assesses the progress Everton have made and what it means for next season. You join the Royal Blue Podcast group on Facebook and follow @SamCarroll0, @Adam_Jones94, @prenno and @GavinBuckland1 on Twitter for all the latest Everton news.

Following a few weeks away, Analysing Everton is back to rule an eye over the Blues recent run from a statistical and analytical viewpoint. David Hughes and Josh Williams look back on the run of results since the Merseyside derby win and try to get to the bottom of how Everton have maintained their strong form, despite the underlying numbers. Plenty of the praise goes to manager Carlo Ancelotti and his ability to set up the side, as the guys look deep into the numbers and assess the hopes for European qualification. EnjoyDavide Ancelotti Liverpool ECHO exclusive:
Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland join Phil Kirkbride to look back at Everton's 2-0 loss at Chelsea on Monday night - and Carlo Ancelotti's reaction to what was his side's first defeat on the road since November. Also on the agenda is the injury sustained by Abdoulaye Doucoure, the fitness of James Rodriguez, and the job a certain David Moyes is doing at top-four rivals West Ham United.
Carlo Ancelotti was delighted to see his side secure their third consecutive Premier League win on Thursday, as was our Royal Blue panel! Richarlison's second half strike kept up Everton's hopes of potential Champions League qualification by briefly pushing them up to fourth in the table, before a Chelsea win over Liverpool had them overtake the Blues. A trip to Stamford Bridge is next on the horizon, and that will surely be a huge test for the credentials of this side. Phil Kirkbride is joined by Dave Prentice, Adam Jones and Gav Buckland to revel in the good mood currently surrounding Everton and assess what could be to come in the future. Enjoy.
