I think Lukaku will stay but if he is to go he has to be in the same bracket as Griezman or Rodrigez who are big money players it would have to be a huge bid to take him as a replacement won't come cheap hope we can keep him and throw a bid in for Augero to help him out would be nice.

Agree1 Disagree8

I hope not, but I for one think he will go witch will be a big shame. He has always said depending on new signings so let's hope we get them in the summer.

07 Feb 2017 20:08:03
Aguero will never happen, Lukaku may stay provided he feels the club is headed in the right direction and could meet up with his high expectations. I think the cull that has just happened may go some way to showing him we do have good intentions. This summer will be a vital step in our Future.

07 Feb 2017 23:43:46
Unfortunately this link was always going to creep back up providing Rom delivered. and he has. Let's hope he feels we are heading in the right direction for him, him to show some. loyalty and/ or we did the promise him anything stupid/ unrealistic in the summer gone for him to stay for another season ie. Champions League this season/ sign unrealistic players etc.

08 Feb 2017 11:00:09
Can you remember Lukaku saying to Terry I will be back next season? Don't care how good a player is, no one is bigger than our club, he thinks he is to good for us? but we must make Chelsea pay BIG.

08 Feb 2017 12:43:21
Don't think Aguero will ever happen. As much as I'd like to see Lukaku stay I have to agree with every word stig says above also.

08 Feb 2017 12:44:14
When will the day come that Lukaku is given some credit for staying at our club? He has been linked with big moves in the last 3/ 4 windows. I'm pretty sure it was all very open when he stayed in the summer. It was clearly reported he had promised to give another year and depending upon how the team competed, he'd revisit this at the end of the current season. He signed a contract extension when he didn't need too. for the club to get a better transfer fee? He smashes in the goals and still gets negative comments. We turned down (reportedly) a lot of money for him, he will sell for a ridiculous fee.
I'd like him to stay but if he goes? He goes with my respect. Great player that deserves to be playing year in year out in the CL. Unfortunately EFC are probably a few years away from being able to give him the stage he craves and deserves, get real some of you! Get off his back.

Nice shot Blue76 Fully agree.

08 Feb 2017 16:05:54
Blue76 hold on a second. No one that i see is having a go at Lukaku. Stig makes some very valid points above. I love Lukaku and would love him to stay. As stig says no player is ever bigger than the club so if he wants to go let him go. There was a lot of noise about him going. Ever since his first season here. He never done anything to silence it and even changed his agent to a reputable manipulater.

Look at Coleman. Came out in the last week of transfer window just gone by that Utd wanted him. What does Coleman do? Silences it straight away by saying he was not aware of it. Coleman comes across and always has as being totally and utterly devoted to Everton. Loyal to the cause. Never heard any comments from him that he wants to win trophies and that he wants to play under the top managers. Even when the fraud was here. Coleman is a prime example of a true professional who if he wanted to could manipulate stories and come across like he thinks he's above all other players at Everton. He never did.

You say Lukaku signed a contract for the good of Everton. That really made me chuckle Blue76. He signed that contract because he significant benefitted from it as well. How much of a pay rise did he get? Don't kid yourself. There are players who come across grateful for the opportunity and to play for Everton. I used Coleman as an example. Baines is another good one. Could of left to Utd when Fellaini did but he stayed loyal.

Lukaku on the other hand just doesn't come across as this type of player. For the record I'm a big supporter of Lukaku's and have been since day one. Applaud his goals, give him praise. Say its fantastic to have him in our squad. But when it comes down to who I support more the club or Lukaku the club wins every time. Lukaku never had the respect for the club to come out and silence the media after comments he made while on international duty. Like a certain Coleman had when there was stories about him.

Stig sums it up nicely for me. No player bigger than the club. Don't care if he eventually turns out to be the best player of all time. If he truely thinks he is too good for Everton let him go. As stig says get a BIG fee for him and wish him good luck. Otherwise show the respect our great club deserves, do your stuff on the field and keep your gob shut about playing for anyone except Everton.

08 Feb 2017 17:00:33
The usual waffle there from NBTB. go back to ya Daily Mail. It's fans like you that really make people laugh. You think you know the full ins and outs? You're hanging a guy because of speculation? Speculation that will never go away? Because he is one of the best young strikers around? Why don't you step back and judge him by his actions? He is still here, after all the papers say he's leaving. He's still smashing in the goals even though some fans mouth off. He is likely in the crazy times, worth far more than we're paying him. So what if he got a pay rise too? Your point is bitter and irrelevant. His interviews are ALWAYS respectful about the club, team mates and fans. Why should he comment on fabrications? It's almost as if you want to play the martyr? Not sure he has done anything that deserves the glib, common nonsense reply: not bigger than the club. He hasn't ever done anything derogatory to EFC. Again I sign off with: get real.

08 Feb 2017 17:54:43
Get real yourself Blue76. You made out that he signed the contract with no benefit for himself. That it was entirely for the clubs benefit. You then tell other people to get real? Good one Blue76. You get very personal there in your reply. No need for that. You don't have the first idea of the 'type' of supporter I am.

Obviously haven't read to many of my posts or have not been reading them for too long. If you have you would see that 99% of the time I stick up for players when they get stick. On this occasion I won't stick up for Lukaku. Because who else at the club has the amount of media coverage about leaving? A lot of that is down to Lukaku.

Never once have i claimed to 'know' the full ins and outs of the club. Daily mail? what's that? Seems as though you think I believe everything in the paper. Think again, just go to the rumours page where I wrote a post on LUKAKU saying the paper wrote thrash before any of these posts. Whether the media are right or wrong with the rumours Lukaku should come out and tell the truth. Just like Coleman done. No truth to his rumours but he had the decency to come out and squash it straight away.

What next Blue76 are you going to claim to know what underwear I'm wearing, how I look and what I do?

08 Feb 2017 19:04:10
I've been reading these pages for years.

08 Feb 2017 20:25:21
Selective reading more like.

09 Feb 2017 00:52:47
Just like to add lads no contract extension has been signed, his agent came out and stated it was 99.9% done but it has never been confirmed by either Rom, his agent or our club for that matter.

At the end of this season he will have 2 years remaining on his current contract so the summer will be the last chance we have to demand big bucks if we decide to sell.

09 Feb 2017 08:47:48
I don't understand where this bickering has come from. NBTB for me is one of the most rational, positive posters on here in my opinion, so it's a bit unfair to write his posts off as "usual waffle".

As regards Lukaku, I firmly believe that he is generally respectful and professional. When he wants to go he just gets on with playing, doesn't sulk and scores lots of goals. His agent is the bad influence.

However, the main reason that he didn't leave in the summer was because no-one wanted to pay £70m for him. We need to either get him to sign a contract now or cash in, as he won't be worth that amount with a year left on his contract. I just hope we can make top 4 and keep him, because unless Walsh pulls a rabbit out his hat Rom and his goals are pretty much irreplaceable.

09 Feb 2017 09:17:29
Jeers for that Blue Tommy. Blue76 is entitled to his opinion. I've been called a lot worse than a waffler so it doesn't bother me at all. Agree with your post.

09 Feb 2017 11:01:12
According to talksport Mino Raiola has said that Lukaku will sign a new deal and is going nowhere. Great news if true. If we don't manage to make CL this season we may have a good chance next season with Lukaku.

07 Feb 2017 11:14:34
Ed's, anyone, any sign of existing players signing new contracts? Namely Barkley and Robles who's contracts expire in less than 18 months. Lukaku has a little over 2 years left on his and there was talk of him signing a new one before Christmas. Albeit from his agent who may have been trying to ignite interest.

These are 3 players I'd certainly like to see tied down. I'm sure there are probably one or two others that I'm not aware of whose coming to the end of their contracts also.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Robles, but Barkley was keen to get a new contract and expected to sign one before the summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 12:29:13
Thanks for that Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

07 Feb 2017 16:05:58
I was wondering the other day about Lukaku and his contract was said to be 99% done so did it get finalised and signed?

{Ed025's Note - not as far as i know ST, i heard it was close to being sorted but have had no confirmation yet mate..

07 Feb 2017 19:52:09
Ta muchly Ed.

{Ed025's Note - anytime mate..

08 Feb 2017 08:38:41
Read an article that Lukaku signed a contract last December earning over £100,000 a week and has a get out clause of £80m. It also said Chelsea are going to give that amount in the summer as Costa is going to China after the bust up with Conte.

What a load of ballony! As you say Ed025 he did not sign the contract last December. Shows how much the papers make up.

07 Feb 2017 09:11:34
Interesting quote from the BBC Rumours page: Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon says he would like to play for "a club like Everton", but the 25-year-old does not believe he is good enough for "the top five in England". (Voetbal International, via Sun) . Isn't he Dutch? I wonder why he has allegedly said this? Perhaps he is trying to manouvre a move? Any thoughts Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it, but if it was said to a Dutch media outlet then it would likely be a link to Ronald Koeman - perhaps last year he said Southampton. I would read nothing in to it at all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 13:12:15
Degsy if he is not good enough in his opinion to play for a top 5 side then he is not good enough to play for us. His negativity would go round faster than the waltzes at Southport fun fair.

07 Feb 2017 13:12:32
The Dutch link was obviously my guess. I guess we are all craving this success so badly we willmake 2 plu 2 = 1,000,000.

07 Feb 2017 20:10:32
Degsy I am sure my bank works off the same maths sheet, especially when it comes to bank charges.

06 Feb 2017 22:54:48
Hi Ed do we hold any interest in this kid ozankan kokcu?

{Ed002's Note - Yes but he is just a kiddie and would not be for the first team. Kokcu is a free agent in the summer and whilst Feyenoord would like to offer him a new contract both Spurs and Everton have discussed the player with his agent. It would be best for his career to stay where he is for now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 06:39:24
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

05 Feb 2017 20:56:16
Martinez saying our defence is just as bad as last season we have the 4th best in the leauge the muppet plus we are only 4 points off champs leauge.

Agree2 Disagree1

05 Feb 2017 23:50:29
He allways did talk crap, he also tried to take credit for Tom Davies, he never played him.

06 Feb 2017 09:45:29
I don't want to knock RM. I did enough of that when he was our manager. he is nothing to do with us now. I would just like to know what the stats are for defending set pieces. Gut feel tells me we have conceded very few since we started defending them in training. Apparently RM stated that we never practiced set pieces under his reign. could that be a reason? Just a thought.

06 Feb 2017 10:49:20
Why even bother listening to him? He talked rubbiish while he was here. He's still talking talking rubbiish. I wouldn't pay attention to a word he says. He's sour that we are doing much better after he is gone.

06 Feb 2017 17:22:09
I still get a little nervy on set pieces Degsy and if we get to CL this season that will be our downfall. I know we have improved a lot but we are still behind the top teams. Got lots to learn still.


100% agree mate.

05 Feb 2017 20:00:53
Martinez is worried about Everton defensively. Denser than lead weight. Amazed he has gaul to comment.

Agree6 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 20:12:41
Cheeky, especially as how someone at the Club was daft enough to write a 10 mill compensation into his contract and even offer him a contract extension based on one seasons results. Can't see this happening again under Moshri.

05 Feb 2017 20:42:45
Yeah his comments had the feeling of sour grapes to me.

05 Feb 2017 21:23:59
Nobody actually wrote a £10m compensation payout into his contract. £10m was what he would have been paid had he completed his contract. The club fired him so had to pay it. Still a disgrace like!

05 Feb 2017 23:11:37
Martinez the fool saying our defence is still crap, but we have the 4th best defence in the league, the muppet.

05 Feb 2017 10:36:34
You know in Barkley we may just have the best English midfielder in the league. Every game he gets better and better. His goal today was simply wonderful, and I have watched it at least eight times now.

It sums up how all Everton supporters feel right now. Think we all had our arms raised before the ball actually hit the net.
Haven't felt like this for twenty odd years. 😂.

Agree8 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 13:00:28
unfortunately we have some fans who can't wait for him to make a mistake which is really sad we need to support him as Ross is a confidence player.

05 Feb 2017 13:34:34
Although some may feel he was harsh on Barkley but I feel the heavy constructive criticism that Koeman gave him at the start of the season has done him the world of good.

05 Feb 2017 23:51:56
He is good but not in the same class as Tom Davies who will be much better than Barclay.

06 Feb 2017 11:35:32
agree Bluey79. But then you get rubbish like this. Barkley been doing it for years, Davies just starting out. What a stupid statement.

07 Feb 2017 18:02:57
Nothing changes Woburn mate.

07 Feb 2017 18:19:01
Have always defended Barkley on here, at one point I thought the boo boys might drive him away.

He is a confidence player, we applaud when he does something magic, we should back the lad for trying and if it doesn't come off don't scream at the guy or he will never learn.

Said previously he has come on even better since Davies come into the team, whether that's down to pressure and expections being lifted who knows, but he is one we need to tie down and get behind.

{Ed025's Note - his improvement is down to koeman baz, his progress had stalled and he was feeling sorry for himself but a swift kick up the arse from ronnie has got him firing on all cylinders again and im made up for the lad mate..

05 Feb 2017 00:36:30
In no way am I grumbling about the club, but honestly believe that, in the summer, we keep what we've got right now, sell our senior loans, if we could get a gk, maybe TWO youngish cb, a wide man and striker (and maybe a fullback either side as cover) we are almost there.

That's 7 players (in my opinion) to complete our squad and we are a serious threat again. So very proud to be a blue, really heading in the right direction. (Not getting the rubbish of my mates any more. Haha) Can't see how anyone at the moment can grumble about anything about our club at the minute. UP THE TOFFEES!

Agree1 Disagree6

05 Feb 2017 07:40:28
I think it's clear that we need at least one quality, relatively young centre back. We at least need cover for Baines, assuming that Holgate is our cover for Coleman and Galloway is going to be utilised properly as a centre back. Another wide man is a must, and we could do with one striker as we have Mirallas/ Lookman/ Calvert-Lewin as cover for Lukaku if necessary. 4 players seems more reasonable.

I'm probably going to be slated for this but I actually think that Joel could end up being a number one for us. He's only 26, so won't peak for another 5-7 years, and has been impressive every time he's been given an opportunity, save for a shaky first couple of games. He's been great the past month or so, and will only improve with more game time. Might save us £20-30m on a new keeper if we stick with him.

05 Feb 2017 09:38:38
There's certainly something there with Robles BT and you're right, he is young and will improve. What I like is the fact that it doesn't matter to Koeman whether it's his signing or a previous managers one, as in the case of Robles, if your playing well your in. Even if that is at the expense of one of his own signings.

This manager will do what it takes to win.

05 Feb 2017 23:53:29
Have to agree blue tommy, Robles may be a very good goalkeeper in the making let's decide at the end of the season.

04 Feb 2017 20:48:29
How refreshing is Koeman.

In the Moyes days our aspiration for the season was reached when he made his "we've reached the 40 point mark now it's time to kick on" statement.

With Martinez it was that we will reach the stars when everyone could see we were a team deteriating with each passing game.

Koeman today is happy with the result but he wants perfection in every game. The players are starting to sound like him. Lukaku said it was good to score but they are disappointed to concede the goals.

I'm going to put this up after every game until its impossible: we finished 5th when 11 points behind 4th with 10 games to go. Now we've got a manager with more than just plan A.

Keep believing blues.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2017 21:40:47
Obviously you have to be happy and satisfied with the result, however letting in three goals at home is not acceptable. When three ahead we allowed them to dictate the game, not acceptable. At half-time Williams was knackered and should have been replaced, same with Barry.

In the summer we need at least one new centre-back and maybe two. We have had many games over the last few weeks an it is hardly surprising that the older players can't last 90 minutes. Hopefully as the program gets less intense we can move forward and pass at least one of the teams above us. Liverpool are in free fall and United and City are not doing overly well. We can do it, COYBB.

05 Feb 2017 00:56:10
Just support Koeman/ Everton and leave the past in the past before Moyes took over at Everton we had been lucky Year after year just not to get relegated, Moyes turned that around and we became regulars in the top 10 and even getting back into Europe where Everton belong, he had a mental block against the top 6 sides and always went for a draw which is why we never won against them. The way he left will always leave a bitter taste but I for one will always be great full for what he done for us. there are good times ahead boys let's just enjoy it 😀.

05 Feb 2017 09:45:27
Lol S1878. Your post begins with leave the past to the past then the rest of it talks about the past. Not having a go mate. Just thought it was funny.

05 Feb 2017 18:26:34
Just read it again but you know what I meant mate.

06 Feb 2017 07:26:54
I do, and 100% agree too.

04 Feb 2017 18:47:50
Can't really say much, it's all been said but one thing I will say is I get the feeling of togetherness around our club at the moment so well done RK. I'm starting to eat my words what a perfect Saturday it's been today, I wonder if we will catch the dark side before the end of season.

Agree3 Disagree0

04 Feb 2017 19:30:59
End of season, will catch them before end of Feb.

04 Feb 2017 20:07:11
The reds are in free fall boys and we will catch them before Feb they got Spurs next we got boro we're down to 3pts.
