Hi Ed have you heard anything about that Henry fella coming to us after being recalled on loan.

{Ed025's Note - its being mentioned eddy but onyekuru will find it very difficult to get a work permit, i would put it out of your mind for the time being mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

Will find it even harder to get in Ronnies team, if Lookman cannot get in this guy will be playing in Unsworth team, may as well leave him there for now unless circumstances change within the management.

08 Oct 2017 12:00:10
Talk of a possible swop idea with Ademola Lookman to Arsenal and Giroud to Everton .
Only one problem Ademola is a promising youngster with his whole career ahead of him and Giroud the other end of his career .
He is though a proven goal scorer .
Offers being mooted Re fee only for Lookman of 15 M though is surely not enough in today's market given his potential and the fact we paid £11 M I think to Charlton
What's your views on this?

Agree1 Disagree5

08 Oct 2017 15:29:34
keep and PLAY lookman, he can be the future star, giroud is the " now and then "

we should be looking at strengthening the team and the kids.

{Ed025's Note - im with you dixie, players like ademola are our future and as much as i like giroud i dont want him if it means getting rid of lookie mate..

08 Oct 2017 23:01:54
Keep the lad and give him some game time, he needs to learn when to do things and when to pass but that will come with experience. All these links to southern teams is quite worrying, I read the lad was homesick well before any links to clubs came out. Have you heard anything about him wanting a return to London ed?

09 Oct 2017 11:13:27
If it is a case of him being homesick, I am happy enough to do a swap deal with arsenal. They take lookman in exchange for usmanov 😁.

09 Oct 2017 11:39:24
I actually agree with you ed and Blue Potato and Dixie .
The fact that RK ignoring him is a disgrace as is with Kenny . Re Walker buying all this talent for the future is all very well but no good if we get relegated .
Pull your finger out RK and start playing talent whatever age they are and stop playing the same ones i. e. Williams that make the same mistakes each week.
I will be extremely surprised if we win at BHA and see a draw as are best possible outcome which no doubt RK will be pleased with!

09 Oct 2017 16:26:45
These stories Re Lookman are gathering pace .
I know Lukaku had to go basically even though I still feel we should have held out till we had a replacement but if we were to sell Lookman I really would flip my lid!
Surely we would not sell him?

09 Oct 2017 18:57:07
We will keep Lookman, RK gives him game time but sparingly that I think will continue until he thinks he is good enough defensively then i think he will start more.

04 Oct 2017 11:18:58
Hi Ed 025 lot of the the papers are now running with the story of Usmanov selling his shares to Kronke the maim shareholder at Arsenal, if he did invest in Everton apart from more pennies in our coffers what else would this bring, we already have a very rich owner, could he be used to finance the new stadium by any chance, like to hear your comments mate cheers.

{Ed025's Note - i think the latest is he is staying with arsenal GB, but if he were to come the stadium and all the commercial trappings would be his forte mate..

Agree0 Disagree2

04 Oct 2017 18:29:55
Hi thanks Ed just seen the latest on that story, but Hey Ho I think we have enough going on at Everton at the mo mate.

{Ed025's Note - we do mate..

03 Oct 2017 22:05:08
Talk of Koeman about to resign.

Agree2 Disagree5

03 Oct 2017 23:52:12
Of course and then Luvvy Bill will pursued him to stay and nothing will change. I don't believe anything will happen for now.

04 Oct 2017 06:33:19
Can't c him resigning not with how much he would lose in compensation.

04 Oct 2017 12:12:47
I'm with James2134 on this. He may resign for all I know but I can't see it happening.

Koeman is stubborn. He doesn't give in easily. Its within his own interest to make things work at Everton.

If he leaves now what will it do for him? Will he get many offers in management?

I'd very much doubt it. His reputation is being battered at the moment. It will make it worse if he walks away.

Yes he probably is unhappy with the way things are going and also probably sulking. Still I think he is clever enough to know the best way or damn near the only way out for him is to turn things around at Everton. If he does that he will manage anywhere. If he doesn't or leaves now his reputation of a manager will be severely dented and he will find it very difficult to recover from it.

03 Oct 2017 10:38:51
ed justdrove past goodison about 40min ago and cameras were rolling set up on goodison road pointing at ground any idea what's happening mate seems bit weird especially now its international break.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of anything, could just be a documentary or something.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Oct 2017 10:47:14
ok thanks mate could be usamov taking over haha.

03 Oct 2017 09:29:43
Seems Kroenke has bid for Usmanovs shares supposedly he's holding out for more money hmmmmm.

Agree4 Disagree1

03 Oct 2017 09:52:10
just had an accident in me kecks :)

03 Oct 2017 09:55:56
just looked at Gunners pages and Ed2 (Oracle) confirmed this on the 30th Sept, now we know something is happening, just hope he doesn't buy them across the park, imagine that happening.

03 Oct 2017 17:18:04
Don't think he would go up against his mate murf. Imagine a Liverpool owner sponsoring Evertons training ground.

03 Oct 2017 01:20:23
I am not one for believing everything I read in the papers etc, but have just read online that Sport Italia are reporting that Everton have supposedly made preliminary contact with ex Watford and Inter Milan boss Walter Mazzarri?

I also don't do kneejerk, but confess to being extremely worried by what is happening under Koeman at the moment. He doesn't seem to want to use wide men at all. Lookman is being given a sniff and Mirallas has been pushed out of the picture altogether. I am sick of hearing about the fact we haven't replaced Lukaku.

the shower across the Park don't have/ play with a big target man but they play quick direct attacking football played to the strengths of Firmino, Sturridge Salah etc. Why can't we do the same for Calvert-Lewin, Sandro, Rooney and Vlasic. Ok, we have lost Lukaku and Barkley is injured as well as Seamus but why are we so poor at the moment? Last season we had Schneiderlin and Gueye in midfield, we had Baines, Holgate Williams and Jags.

Barry has left, Mc Carthy hardly played last season niether did Besic. We now have Gylfi. the nucleus of the side from last season is still there but Koeman is obviously not using them correctly, when they are available. I was perplexed to read over the weekend that Spurs are monitoring Lookman's situation, he is not being given game time and they tried to sign him when we did.

I have already stated on here that Koeman should throw away the i-pad and the sheets of paper they show to the subs before they finally take the field. We are not playing/ moving the ball quick enough, far to slow and we don't press high enough or quick enough allowing defenders to bring the ball virtually into our half before anyone approaches the man with the ball to tackle!

This allows opposition players the time to pick a pass etc. there is no bite in the team and no talking to each other. I watch Klopp and Conte and they are constantly on the move and showing real emotion towards their team. good and bad.

But a mate of mine today called Koeman "The Skittle"? Because he just stands there with his arms folded waiting for us to be bowled over. again! It would appear to me that the problems go deeper and it begs the question "has Koeman lost the dressing room", because even Rooney looks very subdued and Williams is having a nightmare. and the stats show that Pickford has conceded a lot of goals. not good for his confidence or the defence.

I really believed that the appointment of Ronald Koeman was one of the best deals in the history of this Club I have been supporting since 1961/ 62.but something ain't right is it folks? Let's hope He can turn this around very quickly, otherwise I fear that Moshiri's patience will be tested and certain bookmakers are linking "The Spanish Waiter" to take over if he doesn't! Please COYB.

Agree9 Disagree0

03 Oct 2017 12:04:23
Good post GV. I have to agree that it seems RK has lost the dressing room maybe the players don't like his brutal honesty, maybe he goes over the top when calling them out in the press. But, as you say, something just doesn't seem right. I'd ignore the press speculation as to who will take over if RK does get the boot, we were linked with all sorts of managers before we appointed the current boss. Only the bookies win in that situation by throwing names in who have no chance yet fans will have a punt on them regardless. I'd be happy if RK could turn this slump around but I'm not too optimistic that this will happen. A shame really.

03 Oct 2017 12:23:12
Golden Vision one of the best posts I have read on here for some time . Summed it up perfectly.
I am now reading in the S*n! Unreliable I know that players are saying RK has really bad body language st training and generally disinterested.
They saying they think HE WANTS TO GO.
I have never in my 60 years at Goodison heard anything like this before.
Also if Usmanov was thinking about EFC he may change his mind given what is going on .
Everton need to act fast but just like the players at the moment we are incapable of it!

03 Oct 2017 21:28:54
Didn't Koeman make a comment after one of the recent games that if it isn't working then it's best for him just to go? His body language on the touch line doesn't show someone who's particularly bothered either way, which could explain why the players look the same.

{Ed025's Note - i think thats just his natural demeanor mate..

05 Oct 2017 23:43:20
Gv nail and head. Last game of season Martinez slapped win 3 - 0 with u23's. Same nucleas won Wcup.

02 Oct 2017 22:02:26
There are a few (unsubstantiated) reports about Koeman losing the dressing-room and the team not believing in what he's telling them to do.
Be that as it may, it seems that the players just don't trust each other on the pitch and are afraid to be positive and would rather play safe backwards and sideways instead of risking fast forward-going play. Hence the remarks about the lack If confidence and a lack of aggression. As a result, they're nervous and make unforced errors. We need strong leadership and honesty and courage on and off the field.

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Oct 2017 21:30:23
Not sure why someone disagreed with that Bobby. Seems pretty obvious to me!

30 Sep 2017 08:52:32
The supporters aren't helping. The game against limasoll. The atmosphere was dead. It was as if the away supporters just showed up. Bitch and moan on here and to your mates whatever. But when it comes to the games we need to be chanting. If we don't it adds an enormous amount of pressure on the players. Constricting the flow of creativity and playing confident football. People may think they are doing right by not chanting and showing the management and players they aren't happy.

But end of the day it really isn't helping the 11 on the pitch. I know its hard to sing at the top of our voices when you're watching utter crap. But it's what we need to do. Get behind the boys get some confidence back in the team and give them some reassurance we still here, we still love the club and we right behind them all the way.


Agree11 Disagree15

30 Sep 2017 09:42:36
Been thinking this for months. The players don't play with confidence as they're are scared stiffless of getting a rollocking from the fans.

30 Sep 2017 09:43:52
Been saying this for months. The players aren't playing with any confidence as they're scared stiffless of getting a rollocking from the fans.

30 Sep 2017 11:19:17
Chaps, the atmosphere has been on the wain (apart from odd game) since DMs time. but it's amplified recently. Expectations were raised after RMs bumper season. Again under koeman, and following the summer spending spree, expectations rose further again. it's a little like a series of false starts. a lot of us remember glory days. and witnessed them but a lot of fans only ever heard the stories. it's pure frustration. so I can understand it. but it's a viscous cycle and doesn't help at the game. in fact it's almost embarrassing. Regardless of form if u go the game fans need to get behind the 11 lads on the pitch. and stop the booing. or go and support an other team.

30 Sep 2017 12:02:19
I have been moaning about the poor support for a few years now. Goodison has become toxic, for me it has happened since our attendances have risen. I think it's due to a new generation of fans who have never seen us win anything. (For a reference point I have only seen us win the FA Cup, and I was 7 back then) . However, you can't blame the fans for being quiet when you take into account the performances recently, even considering the additional expectation. For me the buck stops with Koeman and his stubborn tactics, and of course the players.

30 Sep 2017 13:09:19
The atmosphere is waning everywhere in football. I grew up watching Everton during the late 80s and 90s and the game has changed dramatically not necessarily for the better with commerciality and global branding being the main objectives. My mates are United fans and last match they where told off for singing in the stands this is a symbol of modern day football.

{Ed025's Note - i can see that bravo mate..

30 Sep 2017 16:16:52
You need the performance to be better to get the crowd going, backwards, sideways boring football that is so slow and lethargic it puts you in a trance.
If you go to a boxing match and both fighters are slow and cagey you wouldn't cheer them on so why would football be different, the performances we have had so far we might as well watch cricket!

{Ed025's Note - i love cricket gray..

01 Oct 2017 00:16:22
To the original post. completely think of the opposite of everything u said. We are fans an we want what we pay for I personally paid over £1500 to go to Atalanta I go every week. When we are paying are on we'll earned money an we are getting performances like we are. We have every right to moan an he frustrated and it's not just aimed at the players it starts from the top down. I think Highly of koemans reputation and would love to give the benefit of the doubt but it's hard when we as a team as a squad as a clue we look lazy we have no direction no purpose. Things. Red to change an change quick. The Bournemouth game was the nail in the coffin for me and I think everyone at the club felt the same. Koeman looked like a man who had had a warning in work that if he doesn't improve he will be sacked and he knows niasse saved his skin. Look back at the reaction when we scored big dunc to koeman. But this goes way deeper than that. unless we change thins an do it quickly we're in for a long hard season. From the optimisium of the beginning of transfer window to the reality of now it feels worlds apart. we need pace an the youth are the only hope we've got of offering this. Youth won't turn it round but it can't do any worse tha. The current. an breathe. come on Everton these are rubbish 😀😀😀.

01 Oct 2017 10:12:01
Rules are killing the game as well, nothing better than a good solid tackle to get the crowd pumped. Most tackles are penalised now even when good, for one rule or another, then add the refs crap performance and we have a uninspired crowd that the team can not even get going with such poor performances.

Combination of everything.

02 Oct 2017 00:12:19
We're not getting paid to go and cheer, Everton fans are proper fans, not like half of Lpool an Newcastle fans with the scarves, we go to watch football and react accordingly, give us passion and good football and Goodison will rock, give us miserable rubbish and expect the same in return, the players/ manager are earning 1-8mil a year, but it's the fans fault for not being blindfully exstatic?

05 Oct 2017 23:49:31
Mowfee82. We moan because we care. I considered myself a average player but did okay. See my posts.

29 Sep 2017 09:47:52
I have always had doubts about RK and it gives me no pleasure to see it in reality .
I do wonder if we were sucked in by RK the world class player . How many world class players are as good at management as they were as players!
Howard Kendall was a excellent player and manager but he a exception .

Look at all the top managers past and present they were all very ordinary players .
I have no magic wand as to who we should have picked but if things continue the way they are st the moment then I see no option but to promote Unsworth and Ferguson and run things internally .

At least their hearts are in the club which could be seen in Ferguson last weekend .
Very difficult decision for the board coming up .

Agree7 Disagree1

29 Sep 2017 13:16:34
ancelotti is available, would cost us a bit in compo, but hopefully we will offset that with a higher league position and extended cup runs.

29 Sep 2017 15:22:12
Ancellotti would cost nothing in compensation but may demand a lot wages and surely a young up and coming manager may be better. Someone with fresh new ideas. Eddie Howe, Lucian favre ( don't know his age) , someone obscure from Italy or France.

Who Leipzig got managing them?

29 Sep 2017 15:36:34
i meant compo for koeman if we sacked him.

29 Sep 2017 15:41:34
I may be tempted by Ancelotti but I keep thinking back to our most successful manager was a ex player and RS had their most successful time while promoting internally so I would definitely be looking to support DU . Let's face it he could hardly do any worse .

I have never known such a stubborn, clueless manager than RK, he certainly does not endear himself to the supporters and his treatment of Naisse was criminal, as well as upsetting several other players.

If Bill is the supporter we think he is, he must be hurting and thinking how long we can keep this present situation going before he takes action.

29 Sep 2017 15:55:24
Trebor, more clueless than Martinez? Yikes!

29 Sep 2017 16:46:58
True dixie but we've got money now to pay him if required. Think we will know more closer to Christmas. If results haven't improved, or more importantly performances, then the board will have to make a change.

29 Sep 2017 16:52:28
Gibbs I see were you are coming from but yes overall
I honestly think we played more entertaining football under RM .
Also he had nowhere near that amount of money to spend and also got us Lukaku and a massive profit .
They both clueless but RM at least used players at his disposal.

29 Sep 2017 18:46:10
We were certainly heading for relegation with RM. Koeman has a lot to do but at this stage don't think he is as bad as RM was. He may very well turn out to be with time. Not yet though for me.

29 Sep 2017 19:02:57
Trevor do you not remember Martinez brought niasse in and froze him out?

29 Sep 2017 20:36:53
sorry to be so blunt, but what a load of rubbish! he didn't do too bad last year and he will get it right this season, I'm sure. I'm not his biggest fan, but he must be given time. I liked Moyes, he had a couple of dodgy seasons and ulimately came good - no matter what you thought of him as a person. Everton do not sack managers on a whim or as a knee jerk reaction to a few bad results. This is not a great time to be involved anywhere near football. So many media obsessed, championship manager playing, microwave fans.

29 Sep 2017 21:18:35
Well said pierre. Besides if we signed the striker and left sided defender rk so publicly wanted things might have looked a lot rosier now.

30 Sep 2017 00:16:16
But Pierre, Moyes didn't spend £150m on players. We should at least be comfortably beating the likes of Limassol with the money we've spent.

30 Sep 2017 08:41:29
Time will tell Pierre but as Blue Tommy said we should be beating teams like Limassol in first gear.
I am not a knee jerk kind of person but RK is the exception.
I am now reading that Spurs are sniffing round Ademola Lookman because having paid 11million pound for him he has been frozen out also .
Seems very strange considering we can't score goals .
I have also just read that Stan at Arsenal has bid for Usmanov shares . A dream would be for him to join Midhri at Everton BUT RK not helping to inspire Usmanov that it would be money well spent given the way we are performing.
RK seems to have upset so many people, we are playing extremely negative football, not entertaining at all and little effort being shown . He also in my opinion would not inspire you as could be seen by the contrast in reactions between him and Duncan Ferguson last Saturday .
If I am wrong I will be the first to hold my hands up but I am convinced as I was before a ball was kicked this season that he is not suited to THE PEOPLES CLUB.

02 Oct 2017 00:22:52
The man never addressed what every team needs, pace, width passion. Did he think Rooney, klas, sig, snide, are just going to pass it round like Barcelona and play teams off the park? The only positives this season are vlasic, niasse, dcl, jjk and he barely had anything to do with them.
