Hi Ed’s lots of rumours floating about that we are looking at Rafael Leao any truth behind it.

{Ed002's Note - Rafael Leao has been watched by Everton after he impressed when the scouts were there to watch another player (Thiago Maia). Barcelona also has an interest in Rafael Leao and a number of other sides including Newcastle, Manchester City and Spurs have looked at him. It might be a tough ask to drop out of a likely Champions League club and move to Everton in the summer.}

Big job ahead for Brands then.

26 Mar 2019 15:53:06
Hi Ed, sorry to bother you just wondering if that update is available yet. No worries if not I'm sure it'll be worth the wait. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I am travelling and will be away another week. Remind me then please - about Thursday and I will do the full thing. I have done a mini-update.}

Much appreciated, enjoy your travels.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

26 Mar 2019 14:45:28
Hi Ed, hope everything is good. Is there any chance you could give us a little update on potential ins and outs regarding the summer if you get a chance? Starting to hear a few names being thrown around. Thanks a lot!

{Ed002's Note - I would need access to my notes but it is something like this:
Alex Telles (LWB) - can't see any chance of a moved really, but he has been looked at
Velentine Lazaro (RM/RW/RB) looked at by Newcastle, Brighton, Bayer Leverkusen, Leicester and Everton but talks are on-going with Napoli who expect to strike a deal
Bruno Fernandes (AM) - I doubt it will come to anything
Malcom (RW) - something may well be possible
Edin Dzeko (S) an enquiry has been made

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2019 23:03:31
Is lozaro the young hertha Berlin player Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes. And you can add RBL to the list of interetsed sides, but Napoli are certainly pushing.}

23 Mar 2019 21:48:40
Sorry for the dumb question, but was just reading on sky sports that digne us injured for France at the moment. It mentions the Everton star, currently on loan from Barcelona. I thought we signed him. Have I imagined we'd signed him or not?

{Ed002's Note - Digne is an Everton player Kingo.}

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 12:16:34
Hey Ed mate what's your take on stories coming out today linking Gomes to Spurs as part of the deal if we sign Trippier, would sooner keep Gomes at Everton myself, cheer.

{Ed002's Note - Gomes is only on loan at Everton, Barcelona would be miffed if Everton sold him.}

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 12:37:16
Haha excellent Ed! Taking trippier on his own, I'd be made up if we signed him but find it hard to imagine why he'd want to come to us!

23 Mar 2019 13:01:07
Thanks Ed I know he is on loan to us but apparently he has asked his agent to try and get him there in part of any deal if we go for Trippier could be just paper talk mate.

{Ed002's Note - He cannot do that - someone is teasing you. Spurs are interested in him but it is nothing to do with any other player.}

23 Mar 2019 15:38:27
Us going for him would have no bearing on where gomes goes there.

23 Mar 2019 15:19:16
Hi Ed 002 not sure if you received my reply but it was supposed to be him who asked his agent to try and get a move to Spurs as we are after after Trippier apparently, could be just paper talk though mate.

{Ed002's Note - Honestly, someone is teasing you. Neither his agent can sell a player that belongs to another club.}

23 Mar 2019 15:47:56
Cheers Ed thanks for the info, suspected it was hot air mate.

23 Mar 2019 17:16:27
I think his performances have really dropped off since he came, don't want us to sign him to be honest.

23 Mar 2019 17:35:06
Inter are said to be interested in Gomes as well.

23 Mar 2019 19:08:05
I agree DGold mate, was chatting to my Brother who is an ardent Spurs fan, he reckons Trippier has gone off the boil since scoring for England, and they would be pleased to upgrade him with a new signing.

31 Mar 2019 09:42:45
The tweet about Gomes is a little embarrassing now isn’t it!
Hammers fans saying his performance yesterday was the most complete CM all season - yet Everton fans don’t want him.
Do you actually watch games people? Do you even consider he hasn’t played much football for some time, had virtually no pre-season, was injured for first few months of season and then asked to play constant games, at a temp that is probably alien to him, The poor lad was knackered.
He is a quality player and would be superb business if we manage to keep him.

And I’m sorry but if you don’t see that then football really isn’t your game.

31 Mar 2019 21:23:07
Got to agree with DaveW1878, Gomes is a talent and we need to do all we can to acquire him. He was injured for the back end of last season which meant he had no preseason, he then starts constantly for us in a high tempo league, now after finally having a break he is showing his talent again and controlling the midfield. Any 'fan' who doesn't see how he would be an excellent acquisition is either stupid or blind.

22 Mar 2019 07:55:02
Linked this morning with Salomon Rondon, that's my type of front man
Really liked him at West Brom
Brilliant player. Sign him up Everton!

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Mar 2019 09:44:14
Is he gunna get us 20 goals, I like rondon but is he that much better than DCL?

22 Mar 2019 13:49:37
Different type of striker to DCL, stronger, holds the ball up very well, just what we need.

22 Mar 2019 14:59:19
Hey Johny mate we definitely need a striker in the summer window, top priority I would say, DCL not the answer. good at times but goes missing.

22 Mar 2019 16:39:45
He wants to stay in Newcastle according to reports.

22 Mar 2019 17:14:25
Am not saying we don't need a striker but I dnt think rondon is better that DCL he is doing well for us right now, England u21 player of the year, scored for England again last night. He needs a run and competition not just replacing.

22 Mar 2019 17:33:16
Agree Johnny mate better striker req ASAP.

24 Mar 2019 08:21:32
I didn't say replace DCL if we move our other two strikers on and replace them with Rondon that would be great business, we need 3 Strikers.

24 Mar 2019 11:50:14
I would love Rondon a great Everton type centre forward, would not cost the earth be a great asset.

24 Mar 2019 15:44:46
DCL is coming on great and will hopefully step it up further next season. I would like someone else in to take pressure off him. Ed’s any chance of Callum Wilson being an option in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - Everton has shown no interest in him.}

24 Mar 2019 17:39:00
Ok thanks Ed.

25 Mar 2019 07:12:07
If Rondon could achieve 10 to 12 goals in a season along with another 10 to 12 goals from DCL and maybe 5 or 6 from Simms then that’s nearly 30 goals from the one position. That’s the way to go next season forget the one main striker that will gat you 25 to 30 goals a season they are just not available
This way we get blood our youngsters.

31 Mar 2019 16:49:36
Is Rondon good enough for a top six side? Personally I don’t think he is any better than mid table. We need to be looking at better players than him, I know they are not easy to find or attract to EFC at the moment but I agree with other comments that he’s no better than DCL.

31 Mar 2019 21:25:00
I'd we want a target man who can score goals surely Mitrovic would be a better option than Rondon.

21 Mar 2019 15:13:36
Hi Ed, hope you are well. Just wondering if ther was any chance you could give us a little update on potential ins and outs regarding the summer if you get a chance. No worries if not or if it has already been mentioned. Cheers mate.

{Ed002's Note - In a few days Joe.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2019 20:31:10
Hey Ed 025 have yo heard any info on us being interested in Jarrod Bowen, Marco supposedly lining him up for a move.

{Ed025's Note - i have read that GB but i dont know how true it is mate sorry..

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Mar 2019 21:19:04
Have seen it b4 mate could just be old stuff.

{Ed025's Note - possibly mate..

13 Mar 2019 22:01:16
So it looks like we attempted to sign Doucore from Watford in January which would have enabled Gana to join PSG. Watford wanted too much for him though.

I'd have been happy with him as a replacement if we had lost Gana.

Silva seems to be keen on Schneiderlin, would the fans be willing to forgive him if he gets back to how he was in the first 6 months of buying him?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 22:51:32
We can't afford passengers. He would have to prove he could put a shift in when called upon and be a game changer when required.

14 Mar 2019 08:46:10
Looks like Gana could be off in the Summer, Doucore would be a good replacement.

14 Mar 2019 15:05:06
whats to forgive with schneiderlin? yes he played badly last year but didn't they all? he was a disgrace at times but if silva see's something in him then we should all be behind him to do well.

14 Mar 2019 15:10:21
I actually think Dacoure is a better player. Better passer and even though Gueye has an incredible engine on him I think dacoure has more purpose in his play. As a box to box player he can defend and attack in equal measure. I’d be well happy if we replaced Gueye with him.

16 Mar 2019 18:19:18
I like Davies in midfield. He just early gets played. I think if we sell gana the money could be used to strengthen other positions.

12 Mar 2019 13:20:30
Interesting that Brands has come out saying he won't be buying a mega bucks striker because he doesn't want to hinder the progress of Riky, DCL and Lookman.
Looks like he really is changing our transfer approach to a long term stratey of bringing youth through.

I have to say, DCL has massively improved this season. Not quite ready to lead the line every game but certainly getting better.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Mar 2019 17:34:14
We have a problem with to many high wages on the books and cannot do much till we sell them. Financial fair play rules etc.
I think we also need a goalkeeper first, you have to be able to defend, also we do not know who will be manager next season.
If it is Siva we will need championship players for the season after.

{Ed025's Note - i believe the names of david moyes and phillip cocu have been put forward by brands if moshiri decides on a plan B, i have to say im not happy about moyes..

12 Mar 2019 18:08:28
My understanding is that Brands was recruited because of his talent at identifying raw talent that would not cost an arm and a leg. He is hardly going to tell anyone about his targets is he?

12 Mar 2019 19:16:11
Optimistic of you Dc. your right about the wages though.

I think I remember Moshiri saying he was particularly looking for a young manager who can play attacking football. Moyes definitely doesn't fit that description. I wonder how many fans would accept Moyes coming back.

{Ed025's Note - certainly not me smit..

12 Mar 2019 20:06:29
Oh please not the Moyes debate again. He is soiled goods.

12 Mar 2019 21:46:52
I'm for giving Silva time but if the decision to sack and re hire happened in the summer, I'd go Cocu, who brands knows very well, or Fonseca. Moyes, not for me. backwards step appointing him and a big one at that. And don't give me the " he hasn't had the money to spend" because he did at man utd and got booted quickly there. Then Spain didn't work out for him did it.

13 Mar 2019 00:13:25
Marco Silva will be coaching EFC in Europe in the Fall of 2020. The negativity among our fanbase is toxic. Give the man his due chance.

13 Mar 2019 08:35:34
I’m sorry but don’t see how you can make statement like that - he has spent a lot of money and seen team slide down table. What gives you confidence in him. We concede too many - tactics not great - no history of success - sacked in every job in England.

14 Mar 2019 00:46:29
We've identified Silva for a reason and fought to get him. The players he and Brands have brought in have been among our best players this season. During the good moments, it seems we have the legitimate makings of a system. This year was always going to be a transition year and we shouldn't be so results-oriented in the short term. He should be given another summer transfer window to bring in more players who play his style of football and another season to build off the good moments and cut down on the poor ones. We can't keep switching from system to system and expect any consistency from the players or in the team's performance. Let's give the guy the team wanted a chance to do the things we brought him here to do.

16 Mar 2019 10:08:22
COYB that’s probably the best and most sensible post I have seen on here for a long time.
Yes there are faults with a young group of players and a massive transitional season.
We have shown in flashes what some of the players can achieve. Pickford will be a top keeper but is still young for a keeper and needs to mature.
Holgate will come back more experienced.
Kenny, DCL have had more games and looking more comfortable. I would like to see Davies and Lookman getting more game time and be ready for next season.
There will be a lot of the squad moving on in the summer transfer window.
I don’t think we need to sign a drastic amount of players, more the right players. A leader somewhere on the team and a more experienced proven goalscorer up front, maybe Gana to be replaced, Gomes and Zouma signed. Always said a right back, Kenny is steady but maybe Holgate could solve the problem as he is doing so well playing there for West Brom.
