Seamus Coleman carried off with badly broken leg. Very nasty challenge by Taylor who got straight Red. Gutted for seamus who was having a fantastic season. 😫.

I have been reading that the new stadium will be a 50,000 seat stadium, is this enough? shouldn't we be aiming for 55,000-60,000?
what do you guys think?

Agree5 Disagree3

23 Mar 2017 22:30:47
I don't think the size has been confirmed yet. They have probably used 50000 as a guide. The size I assume will depend on design, fans, cost amongst other things. After all we don't want another emptihad stadium like city.

23 Mar 2017 22:53:28
Maybe the design would incorporate adding extra seating through an extension, if there was need for it. There's a long way to go tho mate. I think Ed002 said that it could take possibly til 2020 to be ready, so I think there will be tweeks to the design if possible. Exciting time ahead though.

23 Mar 2017 23:25:12
I'm sure until the final architects design is complete they can't specify a capacity. I think 54,075 sounds good.

24 Mar 2017 09:30:19
I hope it is a four stand stadium and not one of these bowls that is so popular these days.
I liked the Dortmund stadium used for last nights England game much more tradition in it, the stadium must have atmosphere and not just look good.

24 Mar 2017 09:41:35
I'd rather there was demand for every game rather than empty seats all around. Plus, you want to keep the personal atmosphere of a 'smaller' ground, so 55,000 would be perfect for me.

24 Mar 2017 18:58:24
Am sure it'll be better than the 'Make-do-and-mend Arena' across the park :-)

24 Mar 2017 22:24:13
How about one end being for supporters who want to stand. I think it's the Dortmund stadium that has this, and it can be changed to seated when required. Atmosphere would be spanking.

25 Mar 2017 00:28:38
round bowl ultra modern please.

25 Mar 2017 07:35:49
Size doesn't matter. It's the quality that counts. That's what I keep telling my girlfriend. No wonder she's imaginary.

23 Mar 2017 10:58:41

Givern events with the Irish management in the earleyer part of the season, if there was any consern about James MaCarthy fitness, why was he allowed to travel?
Everton pay the boys wages, they took the piss last time, playing him in almost two full games in three days afder being out with an injury and on his return took weeks to recover.
I don't know what the international rules are on releaseing players but the IFA are abusing the regulations, if they have forced the situation.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 Mar 2017 16:05:19
FIFA rules mean the club can't stop him from travelling if he is called up by his country. The national side have the right to check his fitness in person and not rely on the word of the club. Failure to release him means he can't play club football for the duration of the international games should the club have any fixtures scheduled.

22 Mar 2017 09:58:21
Just wondering if any Eds have any how Barkley's contract talks are developing or any real interest in him from other clubs? Would be gutted if he left, always a special relationship between fans and the local lads. Cheers.

{Ed025's Note - he is keeping his options open at the moment kane and his advisers are holding out for a massive deal, i hope he stays as i think he has really sorted himself out under koemans tenure and can become what we all know he has the potential to do, a lot will depend on the lukaku situation because if he accepts a mega deal at everton ross,s people will be knocking on the boards door wanting his slice of the action mate..

Rumours on the net Rooney close to agreeing to return to Everton in Summer. £150k a week possibly a free transfer.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Mar 2017 21:34:22
All I can say is this, if we are prepared to offer 150k per week to a 31 year old striker who's best days are clearly in the rear view mirror, then surely a prime Lukaku ar 23 and scoring 20+ goals must be worth 200k a week, Rooney is finished, we need to look to the future, Barkley and Rom should be the big earners, not a twilight wayne Rooney.

22 Mar 2017 00:17:08
I think there are pros and cons to him coming back tbh.

His name alone, will elevate us as a club. It will make bigger names more inclined to buy into what we are trying to achieve and what direction we are going.

Lukaku has already stated in the past he would love to play with Rooney.

He has also stated of our lack of ambition in the transfer window. Maybe this will go some way to proving him wrong.

If Rooney can discover even half the form he was in a few years back. I would take him all day. If he gets his hunger/ desire back and wants to repay us as fans, he will be responsible (goals/ assists) for at least 20 goals a season minimum.

If the rumours are true that we can get him on a free, i think it is definitely worth the gamble. Clear McGeady, Kone, Jags etc off the wage bill and the 150k won't be as hard to stomach.

22 Mar 2017 06:17:37
There's not many other times you'll get a record England and Manchester United goalscorer on a free transfer (if that is to be believed) so I say enjoy it, he's not in his prime but his skill is undeniable and he's still 100% a first teamer for us. Increased squad depth with Europe potentially on the horizon can't be a bad thing.

22 Mar 2017 07:08:11
You can pay Barkley and Lukaku what they want but if they don't want to sign, then they won't sign, Get the money for both of them and go get a first class striker along with Rooney, remember once a blue always a blue.

22 Mar 2017 09:56:18
Forget about Rooney history etc, but where would he figure in our current set up? Genuine question not after any bites or whatever. Playing one up top, would he play instead if Rom (I don't see it) Would he play just behind instead of Ross. Not for me. That us if course we manage to keep both. Therefore would he be a sub for supposedly 150k a week? I understand his professionalism, experience and other things as well as showing our 'ambition' may help, even his ability would help somewhere but as to signing him as a player, even on a free, I struggle to see where he would feature.

{Ed025's Note - im with you kingo, of course if he were to pull on that blue shirt again he would have my undying support but i feel it is a time to look forward not back mate..

22 Mar 2017 09:53:54
The flip side to that is Rooney might want to play for us.

22 Mar 2017 10:08:59
I honestly thought Rooney was finished, he said he would only ever play for everton fc or man utd. Itching if we come knocking in the summer, he would be here in a flash. he seemed stale at man united for the past couple of seasons.

New lease of life at a club he adores, may get him firing again for maybe two seasons. Id also follow up on other targets. for some reason I'd like us to have a punt on the Cypriot striker.

22 Mar 2017 12:51:07
For me we need TWO quality strikers at least! Especially if we are in the Europa League as well. Lukaku AND Rooney. Rotate. It gives you the option to rest each of them when they need to. Or play them together when it sits. No brainer for me. And IF Lukaku goes then get another TOP striker to replace him AS WELL. A good couple of yrs from Rooney will give Calvert Lewin or whoever we sign time to develop.

22 Mar 2017 17:51:41
Formbyjules. If you play them together, who do you drop then? Just intrigued to see other blues point of view.

22 Mar 2017 19:33:38
He will get goals and regardless of whether lukaku stays or goes we need more goals from our forwards.

23 Mar 2017 12:17:52
Kingo78 - if RK wants them all then that is his decision - he is a far better manager than I. But I would suggest Everton need the very best players they can get and that includes the squad not just the first XI. We are doing that by getting rid of the deadwood and improving the quality of the squad. RK will then find a system to fit them and decided as and when to rest and rotate them.

23 Mar 2017 13:23:27
Rooney's return would increase our chances of signing top class players. He is held in high regard amongst the worlds elite young players. He for me is a great business decision if we can land him. We are more attractive, Plus the derby's will be so much better having lads like Barks Davies Rooney they no how much we want to beat the reds.

21 Mar 2017 11:15:30
Any news on Morgan's injury.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 12:39:24
Minor calf injury mate will be monitored leading upto the derby.

22 Mar 2017 05:09:30
Cheers John hope he makes the Derby really like him as a player.

20 Mar 2017 20:17:31
Hi Ed is that correct do you know we are haggling with Watford over a £8 mill valuation on Tom Cleverly, that would represent good business surely, GuernseyBlue.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of any haggling GB, the situation is that there is a contract between the sides that facilitates a permanent transfer of TC after a certain number of games at a set price (I don't know what that price is nor how it might be structured - single payment of £xM plus £xM for reaching 50 games and £xM when he gets his first cap for Norway or whatever. The proviso will relate to the player still needing to agree the move.}

Agree0 Disagree1
