I’m a life long toffee, my family’s involvement goes back to the very first game played at Goodison in 1892, and through thick and thin we’ve been there pretty much ever since.

Most of my writing concentrates on the business side of football, the aim being to obviously express my own views of what goes on off the field at Goodison but also to develop further understanding of the business of football in an interesting and informative way.


I run several successful podcasts, Everton Business Matters,Talking the Blues and The Esk podcasts. All podcasts, including our full back catalogue are available on on Spotify and iTunes and many other podcast platforms

Everton Business Matters

Started in May 2017, EBM is the leading football business podcast which examines in detail the off-field activities of Everton Football Club. EBM is hosted by Rodger Armstrong and co-presented by Everton Shareholder Association Chairman, John Blain

Talking the Blues

Talking the Blues is a light hearted podcast that features all Everton games during the season and a host of conversations around all manner of subjects related to the game.  Andy Costigan and his actor brother George are co-presenters. The podcast’s popularity has grown enormously during the Covid-19 crisis.

Alternatively there’s a more personal set of podcasts here:


Aside from here, articles are published on The Observer, Irish Examiner, Grandoldteam, Liverpool Echo , The Blue Room and Futbolgrad  plus a number of other sites.

In addition I’ve talked about Everton on several media including BBC 5Live, Call Collymore, BT Sport and several podcasts.

Feedback is much appreciated (here).
