Ed. Noticed lower down that you stayed the club cannot get loans for new stadium.

Could they not use the new stadium as collateral for the loans required to build it?

I am no accountant and therefore don't care but as long as the club can cover any debt then just hope this stadium comes to fruition.

{Ed002's Note - No Geoff, they have no credit.}

Thanks ed. A lot more positive over this with Mr moshiri in charge. He seems determined to make Everton more successful on and off the field.

28 Mar 2017 07:26:25
Dont get me wrong. It's great the council are helping us out but seems to only be because mayor Anderson wants the commonwealth games and our stadium will provide the centrepiece of the bid.
I wonder how co-operative they would be if they didn't want the games in our city.

The legacy will be the revival of North Liverpool docklands. Merseyside is increasing population fast and the city is tiny for the amount of visitors to it. We need expansion and this will speed up that process.

Also peel want to invest but at a more leisurely pace. This gives them an excuse to quicken up some of their development for the area and to test the water on whether it is worth 5 bil in investment.

I've never seen so many get well wishes for a player in all my time in football, and no-one to say a bad word about Coleman, it says a lot about his character and what type of person he is, I'm friends with a bloke in the Irish fa and he says he is an Everton man true and true. and to top it all of one of the best rb in the league.

Good post Leahy12. So true.

Hope Ronnie Moran gets a good applause as no doubt he will from the Everton fans, be great if the Everonians gave a chorus of only one Seamous Coleman on the 23rd minute to let him know the fans are right behind him, much as the rivalry, Ihave no doubt some reds will applaud as well.

Hi Baz mate, red here in peace . We will definitely applaud Seamus Coleman . We sympathise with him and respect that he was in injured while defending his country very much like a soldier. Hope he makes a full recovery and he is back to his best inthe future. n.

Just saw TC on sky saying break the bank to keep lukaku I have to agree with him the big man scored a great goal for Belgium.

Trust me Billy. Even if we did he would still talk about moving to another club. His agent was even saying that if he signs it doesn't mean he will be staying.

If and it's a big if he does stay next season great but personally I think he's gone regardless of him signing a new contract.

27 Mar 2017 10:25:23
Tickets bought for me and the old man for the Chelsea game, can't wait, been too long for the both of us.

Reading all the available info about the bramley Moore project, I can't gather whether Everton will ever actually own the stadium, it all seems so vague, it's mentioning leases, and rents? are we going to be tenants? any light you can shed on this Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware if the finances have been totally bottomed out at this time but Everton are not in a poistion and cannot raise the funding to build the stadium so there will be loans taken out (two or three as I undertsand it) by the Council. The plan is that Everton shall pay sufficient funds to the Council each year (to service the loans) in the form of rent.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Mar 2017 19:06:48
I read something similar to Ed. Loans will be taken out to cover the cost but I heard that the council are acting in a guarantor capacity rather than actually taking the loans out. Not sure it makes much difference who actually takes the loan out personally, I think the importance will be in the relationship between Everton and the council and of course the repayment terms of the loan itself. I can't see moshiri putting us in a position where we can't afford our repayments though.

{Ed002's Note - It makes an enormous difference. Everton do not have any credit available to them - or far from enough to obtain the loans necessary to build the new stadium. This is a very significant favour that Everton need from the Council in order if they want a new stadium for the club as the club cannot get the loans themselves.}

27 Mar 2017 22:41:52
It's very well explained in the Echo. The LCC have a much better credit rating than EFC and therefore have borrowed the money the we couldn't or at least couldn't have gotten as good a deal from the lenders. A business then has been set up to take care of ensuring that we keep up payments with various security measures in place to protect the LCC interest. The LCC have certainly aided EFC and must be recognised for their effort to make the whole project get off the ground. We failed to generate 30millon for the kingsdock project, yet this time we are on course to deliver a stadium that is 10 times more in cost to us. So the LCC have played a major role in helping us to get this one off the ground.

To be fair there are examples in the premier league where clubs have benefited from stadiums built for different purposes e. g. Man City and West Ham. We will need help too and whilst different in circumstances it appears we will be cap in hand too.

27 Mar 2017 02:26:48
Hi Ed, noticed on the rumours page you said the scouting system at the club has changed a lot.

Can you tell us how? Not that it's important, just curious.

{Ed002's Note - Steve Walsh has arrived and has been joined by Laurence Stewart an new chief scout Martyn Glover - but still of course they get trashed by the Everton fans. I find that stuff a great embarrassment to read sadly Hugo.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Mar 2017 08:47:40
Fortunately Ed that post referring to our inability to scout a decent forward whilst misinformed doesn't reflect the views of many who post on here. I am particularly excited by the business we have done post Steve Walsh and co'.

{Ed002's Note - Good TA - good to hear.}

27 Mar 2017 10:07:53
Some people are never happy, Ed!

27 Mar 2017 10:41:23
I have to say the moaners are in a very small minority now. I was one last season. with good reason I believe. But as soon as Mr Walsh arrived my view completely changed. I knew of his history only from the media but it was obvious that he worked in the same was as Clough and Peter Taylor did at Forest. In building the team that won the European Cup twice. Taylor would scout the players and leave all the coaching and management matters to Clough. I could see a similar approach at Leicester and hoped that he would work with Koeman in a similar fashion. That indeed seems to be what is happening and so far very successfully. Gana, Calvert-Lewin and Lookman are all quality in my eyes. I hope for many more of this quality to come in and Koeman can work his magic in turning them into a unit. I expect us to sign a young central defender, a young center forward and another creative midfielder. Probably from lower leagues or ones not needed at another club. Danny Drinkwater and Marc Albrighton at Leicester were not exactly setting the world alight throughout their careers but in the unit of Leicester City with the flair of Marez make an exceptional unit. let's see who we sign and how Koeman sets up a midfield to challenge the rest. Gana is the start of that I believe.

27 Mar 2017 10:50:35
Spot on Toffee Ace I would go as far as to say the majority of fans are made up with the progress so far since the take over. Unfortunately the few that are not tend to be the ones that make most noise.

27 Mar 2017 11:27:55
More importantly it seems Lukaku is not happy with our buying policy. Although, I believe he will find any excuse to get his move away from the club.

27 Mar 2017 00:25:37
Hope the lads can really put in a shift for Seamus this Saturday.

Rom has been fantastic this season but I'm sick to death of this circus every week.

We've done more talking about him than any of the good stuff that's gone in the past 12 months. For me personally I want Barkley signed and Rom to come out with his decision. He needs to stop messing around and be honest so we can all move on from him.

This summer is a huge one and next season we don't need any distraction other than a concentrated effort at the CL. This continuous innuendo with Rom has to stop once and for all.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Mar 2017 08:33:26
Thing is BJU, it's not just his decision. He made a decision 2 or 3 years ago to sign a contract. As a club we want him to extend it now and sign a new one. He has every right to let the contract run down and take the next 2 years looking elsewhere. Likewise, we can sell him now, in 12 months time or let him walk away for nothing in 2 years time. Soit is not just about Rom's decision. the club have a decision to make as well. We probably get top money for him if we sell him this Summer. But then we have no center forward. We can keep him for another 12 months and still sell him. and may even get as much then if transfer values keep increasing at the rate they have in recent years. I would guess that we will be looking for a replacement and when we have one, then we will sell him. Probably in 14 months time. So that we have him for next season and still get a good fee for him. That means our supporters will have to put up with the circus continuing for 14 months more. After all to sell him this Summer means we get more money (but we have that with Moshiri anyway) . Added to which, he is pretty well impossible to replace and it gives us 14 months to improve and get into Europe which is what he wants anyway. I really can't see going until the Summer after next. unless of course he has a verbal agreement with the club as some people have hinted? I think Ed002 suggested something along these lines?

{Ed002's Note - I suggested it before last summer and I expect he will go this summer Degsy - it is a case of what interest there is in him - and that will become clear over the next three months. Everton are certainly looking for a replacement already.}

27 Mar 2017 10:48:26
I would guess you are right Ed002. But I also know that if we have not found a replacement, we are not in the situation of HAVING to sell just yet. With the contract as it is, unless there is a verbal agreement that we don't know about, we could squeeze another 12 months out of him and still get a decent fee. assuming he does not throw his toys out of the pram like Berahino did at WBA. I suspect we may wait the further 12 months and see what develops with our own progress. He wants European football. so do we. Like I say, it probably depends on what has been said to him. If you are in the know, then I accept what you say. My hope is that we keep winning, he keeps banging in the goals, we qualify for Europe and then he is happy to sign a new contract.

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that. Clubs generally don't want to hang on the players who don't want to be there - it makes the situation difficult all around. Lukaku wants to be playing at the highest level and will not really be looking to hang around at Everton - where realistically the Champions League on any sort of regular basis is a very long way off. He would have signed the new deal save for the reasons I previously explained. His agent is talking to other sides to see what options may be available - and Everton will know that. Everton are certainly looking at alternative strikers and making sure that, should he leave, they have the information on available options. And you cannot discount the money that Lukaku and perhaps another leaving would raise for summer transfers.}

27 Mar 2017 10:54:40
Thanks for the update Ed hope he stays but fear the worst on a positive note we are proactively looking now rather than waiting for his final decision.

{Ed002's Note - The club understand the situation SA.}

27 Mar 2017 11:45:20
Could be just the distraction needed though so we keep sneaking up on those above us 🤔.

26 Mar 2017 17:37:42
Absolutely gutted for Seamus, hope he gets well soon.

what's everyone's opinion on how we should set up against Liverpool, without him, though?

Think the simple solution would be to put Holgate in straight to right back, which I wouldn't mind, but I prefer him in the middle rather than fullback. I've heard calls for Kenny to be given a chance (I think it's too early for him and the Derby is way too big a game) . Also thought about the potential or us going 3-4-3 with Lennon as the right wing back.

Obviously it makes no difference what we think, but would like to hear people's thoughts or solutions.
