Ed002 the press are saying we are looking to sign a keeper in January, is this true and if so what keepers are actually available that are any good?

{Ed002's Note - January is a rotten time to look for a GK BG87 and whilst Everton might look in the summer it seems unlikely that something could be done now. In the summer, the likes of Hart and Begovic will be available. Maybe if they are looking it will not be for a first pick? So, apologies, I cannot really help.}

Hi Ed's just wondered if you know anything about how Besic is doing with his recovery.

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware there have been no issues, still early days though really, most setbacks, I am told, tend to occur late on in rehab these days. He is not due back until early/mid February.}

Thanks Ed well we all wish him well with the recovery, I was curious whether he could've been back to fill the void when Gueye heads to AFCON, guess not 😟.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, the answer is no according to the club, he won't return in time for a departure to the AFCON.}

Wonder if anyone could shine some light into a rumour? I've just seen that Ronald koeman is only here 3 days a week to work with the club as he flies in from Holland? Hope this is not true.

Surely not? What would he be doing in Holland? I mean, what would be attracting him back there so much.

I think it is a load of bull but I just seen it on another everton website can't be true though surely.

He was interviewed a while back saying why he doesn't live in Liverpool. Edwin does but Ronald lives not far away from Liverpool I remember him saying.

02 Dec 2016 18:11:45
(Surely not? What would he be doing in Holland? I mean, what would be attracting him back there so much. NBTB) he is putting his finger in the dam? O no he's not but he is at Everton lol.

{Ed025's Note - he might be missing the wacky bacca and ladies of the night stig.. :)

This is probably just paper drivel but we're linked to the atalanta midfielder frank kessie. Now I watch a lot of italia football and this kid is very very good. creative and caries a goal threat from midfield.
Any of the eds know If there's any truth in this?

{Ed002's Note - Juventus have opened discussions with Atalanta over Franck Kessie who has been watched by Manchester City, Chelsea, Napoli, Liverpool, Monaco, Manchester City and Roma (and probably others) this season and whilst on loan at Cesena last season. Seville, who looked to taking Kessie in the summer under the Cotonou Agreement would have the benefit of not having the work permit issue that the English sides would have unless they paid well over the odds for the player.}

Ok papers are getting ridiculous now with links to Sissoko! Surely let's just be glad we dodged the bullet on that one especially after his comments in the press after his move!

Agreed Southern Toffee. Although I wouldn't say no for say £15m. He'd probably be worth a punt then.

Agree1 Disagree4

30 Nov 2016 17:07:19
His attitude stinks and they way he treated us stinks as well. No for any money would I have sissoko at efc.

Agree3 Disagree1

30 Nov 2016 17:43:58
Agree with u efc sissoko is an accident waiting to happen best thing that happened in the summer was us missing out on him.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Nov 2016 18:20:13
I know the articles I have read say Spurs would have to look at taking a loss on him but I doubt Levy would take that much of a loss! It would be like us signing a striker for £13.5m and selling for a couple of million!
Oh wait! That's what we do! Niasse and previously Bilyaletdinov spring to mind!

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 18:23:01
If he came in and put in a stint then yes maybe but to repair the way he spoke when joining Spurs about us it would need to be one hell of a good stint and I just don't think he has the right attitude to do it! Best move on, I'd prefer Will Hughes for £15m!

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 19:18:45
Levy is too tight to take a big hit on him. Maybe a loan with an option to buy might suit us. Although i'd rather sign someone else instead.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 19:12:57
Anything in the tabloid reports regards Van Dijk?
I do think he would be an amazing signing but as its just after the Southampton match I cannot help feel this is just the press trying to sell papers!

{Ed002's Note - Don't hold your breath.}

We had every opportunity to sign him when he was at Celtic but we missed it and went for Funes Mori, perhaps another real missed opportunity by RM.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 11:43:33
Unfortunately he's going to Liverpool in January just yo add insult to injury. he's keen to go there and they're happy to outbid us to get their man. we should of signed him whilst we had your chance when he left Celtic. all the fans were begging to the Herat he to sign him up but as usual it fell on deaf ears!

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Nov 2016 13:18:16
Not just Liverpool linked with him, I read somewhere that City and Chelsea are also interested. Soli, if I remember correctly, there was quite a few on here who didn't want him when the lad was leaving Celtic.

Agree3 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 15:21:45
Not sure it would come down to being outbid more a case of what others can offer here and now that will be the stumbling block!
Never know though, maybe Koeman could persuade him!

I wish I wish i wish!

Hi Ed I see Brahimi's name touted about in some sites taken from a Portuguese newspaper is this recycling old news or is there still an interest?

{Ed025's Note - old news as far as im aware ST, we did have him watched a couple of times but nothing more than that im told, i like the look of him though and would be happy if we did make progress on this one mate..

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Nov 2016 19:45:28
Ed think brahimi would be a great signing but not holding my breath on us getting him or are intrest in him especially they way we where messed about with by Porto we have never really had any good transfer dealings with any Portuguese sides.

{Ed025's Note - we have never had the resources that we have at our disposal now though duke, money talks and even the porto,s of this world will have to sit up and listen if we come a calling with a fistful of euro,s mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

In his Sharkopod the other day, Ed002 gave some interesting info on Everton's possible incoming and outgoing transfer activity. He gave caveats to these comments, not least because of the ongoing changes to Everton's scouting and recruitment setup.
He mentioned that Everton might listen to offers for David Henen, which isn't that surprising, as the player hasn't broken through to first-team reckoning. However, I was taken aback when it was suggested that the club might also listen to offers for Liam Walsh. If Ed002 meant a loan, then I could understand that, but it sounded to me that a permanent move was being mooted. As Ed002 is proven to be well-informed and well-connected, I am concerned that the club would consider permanently releasing one of our bright young talents. I hope I just misheard or misunderstood the comment.

{Ed002's Note - The club would like to keep him but are aware of interest. If they can come up with a plan for him going forward for a couple of years that would help.}

Ed002: thanks for clarifying this.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Nov 2016 18:40:36
I personally see Walsh and Davies as the future midfield pairing of efc. I hope we keep both of these.

{Ed025's Note - they still have a lot to prove but yes why not, i would like to see a bit more of our youngsters being given a chance fanatic..

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 22:19:41
We have several other very promising U23/ U18 players, but it's vital that when (if? ) they get first-team opportunities that they deliver performances that convince RK they're worthy of a place in the first-team squad. If they don't continue working hard and productively at U23/ U18 level, they won't get first-team opportunities - and, even more importantly imho, if they don't do what RK wants when they're selected for the first-team, then RK will eventually bring in players who do. It's surely that simple?

{Ed025's Note - ron has never really been famous for bringing youth through to be honest sid, im hoping that its because the talent at other clubs has not been as strong as it is at everton but im guessing there mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 22:32:49
Ed025: if RK's three-year project is to make Everton European qualifiers, then he may well not want to risk that by blooding inexperienced U23/ U18 players.

{Ed025's Note - thats certainly a fair point sid but i would hope if the young guys are good enough they will be given a shot at least, otherwise having an academy would be pointless mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 23:00:24
Ed025: your point about the value of having an academy is one I raised in a post a few days ago - although I wasn't advocating its closure, but rather just seeking other fans' opinions.

{Ed025's Note - im a big fan of the academy system sid but there must be a means to an end, it does seem at times that we are developing players for the championship loan market and im not too happy about that, dont get me wrong i dont expect a wayne rooney every season but i would like to see one or two at least getting on the bench or maybe a run out in a league cup game, it must be soul destroying for these kids who work as hard as they can to make a career for themselves overlooked for a player who obviously has no future at the club (kone being a prime example).give these young guys a shot i say, if they are not good enough then fair enough but we wont know unless they are given a chance, im sure the majority of supporters would be in favour of a policy similar to that mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 17:25:25
The players are there and are good enough if givin the chance, just off the top of my he's mustafi dyer Baines all at efc at some point but released, and am sure there are many more, seems to me the prob is too impatient for them to develop. Maybe the prob is that they need a more competitive competition to regularly showcase there talant. I know the club try find this for the promising players but maybe not enough if these players keep slipping through yet obvs turn out to be very good pl players. Maybe a b team that can play against other professional teams not academy teams I dnt know if it is allowed or can be done bu isn't that what Barcelona do? I know they have a b team I don't know if they play in proper pro leagues like Barcelona or its just Spanish academy leagues. I might sound stupid sayin this Bu just a thought.

{Ed001's Note - they play in the Spanish league system and it has destroyed the lower leagues, to the point where they do not even have two full divisions of fully pro teams because of it. The answer is to have a proper academy that doesn't just buy players from around the world, but works on developing local players. Athletic Bilbao are the model to follow, not the government assisted cheats of Real Madrid and Barcelona.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 18:10:50
A good point that Ed001 I didn't realise that it had damaged the lower leagues so badly, not a huge follower of Spanish football just the odd game here and there on Sky.
On the point of loaning players I think there have been a few examples of where this hasn't worked out well, loans cut short for lack of game time! For certain players surely the championship isn't a bad league for development, it's still a tough division.

{Ed001's Note - it has been a disaster for them, people here in Spain now only really care about Barca or Madrid, they have taken most of the following from the rest. It would be a disaster in the English leagues if that happened. We have the most professional clubs in the world, there is no way most could survive if this were to happen.}

What the hell is going on. I'm not a regular poster except at transfer window times when I am not usually away working.
I have returned to find our beloved team in freefall, well when I left they were second everything OK very happy now they are seventh on a very poor run.
Please let me know what is going on. It seems to be too much deadweight need a massive overhaul. If we have to pay over the odds for a player well pay it. I realise it is not easy in the Jan. transfer but we must try. The alternative will be in summer losing our prize assets certainly Lukaku and possibly Barkley {although I'm divided on this one he is playing sh1t recently} and also Coleman too, there could be a mass exodus. Please let me know.

Well just my opinion as to what's going on. Firstly Martinez left us with a very poor squad that will take maybe 18 months to two years to correct.
However this does not seem to excuse the fact that in my view the players do not give 100% for Koeman.
Maybe this is to tough a job for him we shall see at the end of the season.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 17:17:41
I agree with u to a point milom Martinez did leave us with a poor and ageing squad but I do believe ronnie given time will get us going in the right direction as for the players not giving 100% if so then they should not be at everton but it could also be that we don't have the players to fit in with the style of play ronnie wants we could defiantly do with replacing a few players here are the ones I would be looking to move on in future transfer windows mirrallas, mcarthy, delboy, mcgeady, kone, niasse plus I think ronnie needs to freshen are team up if the senior players aren't doing it then we should try a couple of kids I would have holgate in for jags and I would put calvert lewin up front with ROM or just behind ROM to give him some support plus this would get the crowd right behind the team and the young lads it couldn't be any worse than Sundays performance.

{Ed025's Note - no argument from me there duke mate..

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Nov 2016 20:33:19
I did say in another post that the players are not buying into" project Koeman"

My understanding is that are a few rumblings in the dressing room and beyond. some of it has to do with formations, player selection - cannot say too much more.

The football we are playing is uninspiring. it is amazing how strong player power is! . there is plenty of talk of big transfers in Jan but let's be honest who sells the best players in this window and if you do happen to buy quality you are paying over the odds and then this could potentially lead to a slippery slope.

I do believe Koeman will be gone in the summer to pastures new.
