Michael Ball gives us his thoughts on the Villa debacle:

“I remember during my time as an Everton player, my captain, Gary Speed, ran past me and tackled my man. In the split second in which that happened, it was the biggest wake-up call I could have had. The fact that one of my team-mates ran past me and tackled my man embarrassed me and from that moment on I made sure it never happened again.

However, no one is doing that for Everton at the moment. No one is stepping up and taking responsibility, as well as setting the standards required in the process.” [Echo]

BBC head writer Phil McNulty is pointing the blame at the Everton board for the current situation:

Amadou Onana shone a light on an alarming issue. After the heavy 4-0 defeat against Aston Villa, he unveiled a screenshot revealing the depths to which some ‘fans’ can stoop – a deeply disturbing racist message. [EPL Index]

The club immediately addressed the abuse in a post on Twitter, much like they did after the opening day defeat against Fulham when Neal Maupay was the target. [EFC]

Sky Sports has issued a statement after viewers took issue to comments made during the Premier League match between Aston Villa and Everton, saying they have reminded commentators of their “responsibilities” regarding inappropriate comments about the black armbands that Everton players and staff were wearing on Sunday. Everton fans have often expressed their surprise at how Andy Hinchcliffe in particular seems to relish belittling his former club. [Mirror]

The latest on Che Adams according to journalist Paul Brown:

“It looks like Everton probably will get Adams. I think they’ve obviously been trying to find a deal for him for quite a long time. He’s been on their radar for many months.

“It looks like Southampton are willing sellers, and it’s not too far away from being done now, so I think Everton are likely to have a new number nine coming in which is good in a number of ways.”

Dominic Calvert-Lewin sustained a fractured cheekbone in yesterday’s defeat to Aston Villa and has been placed under the Football Association’s concussion protocol. [BBC]
