Ed02, all gone quiet about Monchi, you heard any new info on the grape vine?

Are we still interested and have we made any contact with club and his representives?

As always thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Everton are still interested whilst I understand the interest of Real Madrid has waned a little. However, PSG are also still looking to him and that might make any agreement with Everton very difficult.}



14 May 2016 13:44:42
It was only a matter of time till Moyes started blowing his trumpet in the press.


1.) 14 May 2016 14:51:32
He's also talking about himself in the third person now.

2.) 14 May 2016 17:12:16
He already has, and thanks for 11 years great service Dave but you moved on and the club moved on, time for a fresh face!



08 May 2016 11:08:15
Reports that Frank de Boer's agent Guido Albers, said that the Ajax coach would love to coach a club like Everton.

I imagine that agents sound out clubs for mangers like they do players, let's hope Everton still have some appeal after recent displays.


1.) 08 May 2016 12:35:04
That is a no brainer. I'm yet to see anyone disagree with the appointment FDB, should that happen. It's almost a come and get me plea! Fingers crossed 🙏🏼.

2.) 08 May 2016 14:12:02
Everyone but the board of Everton apparently, apparently because they must know the deep deep discontent with the state of affairs but not a word. This goes beyond those that say 'oh but this is the Everton way'. It shows a level of disrespect and don't give a damn about the Clubs supporters that quite frankly is beyond belief. I am one of those that is staying away from the Norwich game, I hope though that those discontents that do go, show a bit of class, remember the players and staff will have their families with them.

3.) 08 May 2016 14:22:37
He could bring Jaap Stam with him to sort our defence out and Bergkamp as his assistant, dream line up.

Also his Wikipedia page says his current team is Everton so obviously it's going to happen.

{Ed025's Note - it must be true then j, if wikipedia says so.. :)

4.) 08 May 2016 14:30:38
That's a fantastic group of coaching talent there Jtheblue.

5.) 08 May 2016 14:40:53
If this Club has any ambition whatsoever then it has to pull the stops out and go for De Boer and his staff.

Imagine the effect their presence would have on all levels of player at this club.

There no needs to be a dramatic change.

6.) 08 May 2016 15:00:42
I couldn't agree any more Lance.

7.) 08 May 2016 16:48:07
I'm in if that's a possibility! Good manager and if e did bring his backroom staff, even better! Surely he wouldn't want to come to work with Jones?

8.) 08 May 2016 17:33:10
Now wouldn't that be amazing, the defence would be sorted out for sure and we might be able to hold on to some players.
Also, I can't see FDB's agent saying things like that without FDB's permission.
That's if he did say it.

9.) 08 May 2016 20:11:15
Are we talking about showing respect to the same players who are showing no respect, no fight and no loyalty to the shirt that most of us would give our right arm to wear just once?

Whilst RM may be the cause of this there is hardly one of them who deserves their wages over the past few months. Whatever is going on behind the scenes, we can all suffer from discontent at work, but when you are getting paid like they do I expect effort at the very least.
THEN they will get respect.

{Ed025's Note - im with you totally dave..

10.) 08 May 2016 20:25:49
Let's be honest the Dutch league is very weak and Ajax don't do much in Europe. Let's get Aberdeen's manager to declare interest and see how excited we get!

11.) 08 May 2016 20:40:52
Dave 1878 bang on pal.

12.) 08 May 2016 23:21:03
I am with you kingpin. Fdb is unproven and will be a gamble. If i was bk i would make raffa bennitez my no 1 target. Proven winner.

13.) 09 May 2016 02:49:22
Pedromez you aren't hearing anything because EFC are behaving professionaly. Martinez won't be sacked or let go til the end of the season, that is the decent and professional thing to do. Announcing this before hand serves no purpose except embarrassing Martinez which he does not deserve. We are not Man City.

14.) 09 May 2016 06:06:35
What are you on about? I've not said anything whatsoever about not hearing anything from the board and if you read my other posts, I'm an advocate of the way the board conduct themselves etc etc.

15.) 09 May 2016 17:23:10
Being succesfull at Ajax is like doing well at Celtic or going back Walter Smith at Everton. We on paper could go down next season on form therefore we need a hard nosed manager who can build a club from the bottom
RM has wrecked Everton even with the decent foundations left by Moyes.
De Boer took over an already top club in a second rate league he would be a big gamble.

Tear in me eye hearing about grumpytoffee.

But then smiled imagining his debates with Howard Kendell over Fat Sam.

Rest in Peace grumpy.


1.) 13 Apr 2018 17:05:36
Only just seen these threads, been away. Can't believe it.
Really sad news, RIP Grumpy mate.

2.) 13 Apr 2018 17:55:57
RIP Grumpy, sad mate.

3.) 13 Apr 2018 21:56:11
WTF do I take the mick out of now. Yes it happens and I am not a religous person but sometimes you have to wonder what it is all about. Condolences seem insincere from those of us that are anonymous to Grumpy's family but believe me they are meant. I for one am now going to take a break from this board. Perspective.



13 Jan 2018 16:44:51
Like the look of macca and guaye in the centre, spuds hopefully won’t get much time in the middle with them 2 at them, bit of pace and aggression. Still don’t like Sig on the left, middle for me with a recognised winger. Please get rid of Martina, sick of watching him stroll whilst chasing back.





11 Dec 2017 02:25:49
The most telling stat from the derby is that Everton had 66% of their shots on target against Liverpool's 13% on target.


{Ed0333's Note - Im not trying to be funny here mate but Everton had shots on goal?

1.) 11 Dec 2017 03:30:55
Well the penalty was one for sure. I that was the only one then it is 100%.

{Ed001's Note - you had 3 mate. One soft, almost pass back by Sigurdsson which Mignolet caught (which tells you how soft it was when he got near it, let alone catches it!) and one other in the 2nd half which missed, hence the 66%. One miss in 3. I am not sure how anyone can think that these stats are relevant, clearly someone who has no idea about the value of stats or how to read them. You need huge numbers of whatever it is being measured before any stat is truly relevant. You are talking about 100 games or so before you can rule out aberrations in the data, at least. Shots on or off target in one match is too small a spread to even have any relevancy other than mild interest from people who don't understand them.}

2.) 11 Dec 2017 04:39:03
Ed001: the only statistic that really matters is the 1-1 result ;-)

{Ed001's Note - exactly.}

3.) 11 Dec 2017 09:35:11
I am with BeStyrne on this. Everton had 66% efficiency with their shooting accuracy whereas Liverpool only had 13%. I would add that 19.78% of Evertonians know how to wind up Liverpool fans and Ed's with useless data and statistics.

4.) 11 Dec 2017 11:58:20
🎣 looks like I cast a line and got a bite 😂😂😂

Come on ed01 play nice 😘

This one just made me laugh and the stats of the game weren’t exactly in our favour.

Lovely lovely lovely haha.



16 Nov 2017 11:23:57
Gotta take my hat off to Niasse, just read his interview and all he endured still keeps his head high and smiles. Giving 100% every time wins me over, il be giving this kid a good cheer when and if he’s on at the weekend.


1.) 16 Nov 2017 12:53:20
Absolutely BeStryne. His attitude and commitment puts most professional footballers to shame. Pitty they all haven't got a similar outlook to Niasse.

2.) 16 Nov 2017 13:00:17
He’s a quality lad is Niasse, shame what happened, regardless of how good he is, never gives up, he deserves every goal he gets.

3.) 16 Nov 2017 16:49:25
The lad obviously realises how lucky he is to be a professional footballer and doing something most of us would have loves to have done. Forget the money aspect, i would gladly take the average working wage to play for everton. Its nice to see in this day and age that there are some players still out there who are playing for the love of the game and imo he certainly fits that bill.

4.) 16 Nov 2017 18:02:29
I think Naisse should be awarded player of the season already because he is one in a million .
Puts virtually all other footballers to shame .
I never thought I would ever see a player behave as he has done ever again and to do it under so much adversity is truly amazing.

5.) 16 Nov 2017 21:33:44
ALL HE ENDURED! . REALLY. this is a guy that gets paid more in a week than most of us earn in 2 or 3 years!

And he hasn't even had to do hardly anything for it. no wonder he's smiling so bloody much!

Listen he's a decent guy in comparison to other footballers and good luck to the kid but to state that he has endured anything. come on give yourself a shake will ya!

6.) 17 Nov 2017 13:34:36
It’s does not matter how much a player gets paid, no human being should have been treated the way Niasse was, Paying more than what we get in a year is no excuse for a guy to endure that shite dished out by Koeman, disgraceful, have to disagree with you Nev.



04 Nov 2017 16:59:03
I might be one of few, but I hope we get Big Sam. Ok he done wrong, Alex fergerson had his fingers in everything, but no went after him, successful manager and knighted who would dare. People do wrong it happens, personally I couldn’t give a s! *t. Everyone’s got a background, no ones an angel.
Look at his background in management, Bolton would love a Big Sam now days. Boring football? Long ball football? Mourinho critised his style, just after he was defeated by him, sour grapes? Yet Mourinho parks the bus, plays boring football and throws on everyone over 6ft for long ball tactics when losing and he’s a football genius!?
SA managerial career is a very good one, Bolton, West Ham, both from championship to stable prem sides, never backed enough to show true potential. Newcastle as Ashley took over, that was never going to work out, shows cause now there back in the prem back up for sale. Sunderland and palace prob feel the same as Bolton.
Big Sam don’t turn up as ed says, with a knife for a gun fight, he has a solid defences and wants to win. As someone commented on here, if he was Senor Samuel Alladycies with that managerial record he would be held in the same way as some of these more desirable managers.
I personally would like Big Sam, he’s solid, proven, hungry for a good team and I would like to see what he can do with financial backing.
Read his Wikipedia and full understand how good a manager he really is, we are what we are and right now Big Sam for me is the perfect fit, 18 - 30 month contract to start and go from there, if he builds the team up and we stagnate then like chity we upgrade manager to suit the team, maybe we don’t need to and he becomes a ledgend, picture holding a cup right next to Our very own Howard Kendall.


{Ed025's Note - right thats me sold mate....NOT!!!!

1.) 04 Nov 2017 17:23:13
He's a crook and plays boring football. Not exactly the best CV in the world.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 17:32:54
Burnley are joint 4th. Get Dyche Now!

3.) 04 Nov 2017 17:36:38
Are you his PR manager mate? Bet you were the one who got Trump into power haha.

4.) 04 Nov 2017 17:40:11
Cp 9w 13l 24games, sun 9w 13l 31games, WH 68w 67l 181games, BR 32w 34l 90 games, NU 8w 10l 24 games.

Bolton, preston and Notts county where a lot of games in the lower league's.

Aside from West ham the rest he lost more than he won. And West ham were you could say they gave time to develop a team he managed one more win than a loss.

I don't want a short term solution to this mess and not a corrupt one either.

{Ed025's Note - you cant really say hes corrupt john...oh yeah you can because he is mate..

5.) 04 Nov 2017 17:48:31
Haha. Love it Ed.

6.) 04 Nov 2017 17:56:05
Not trying to sell him too you ed 😜 haha, were bottom part of the league, team in dire place and SD not got a quarter of the experience SA has.

Smit as I said sir Alex fergerson had his fingers in many pies just wasn’t caught with his pants down, probably more managers we don’t know about. His boring football comes from West Ham, when he changed personnel and style they stopped moaning but it stuck with him. At palace and Sunderland he did what he had to do with what he had to work with. At Bolton he played some good football and built a good team on a small budget, all forgot about that cause of what happened afterwards and at other teams.

We are in a mess and that calls for people with proven track records of dealing with messes, if he came and won a cup next year we would all sing a different tune, look at how many times people turn on this forum alone.

Il stand by my words and if it does happen and he managers us well and wins something I can not wait for the praise for him on here, if not il hide from the stick il get hahaha.

{Ed025's Note - im not saying he cant do a job BS, its just that i cant stand the guy mate..

7.) 04 Nov 2017 17:59:16
But John short term would be best

What if we pick a nice named manager and it goes wrong mate, I don’t fancy us getting out the championship anytime soon.

8.) 04 Nov 2017 18:15:10
I don't care about a name but I do care that they have a winning mentality and have built a team that brings success. Sam has never, ever, ever done that. Ever.

For anyone on here that thinks short term is what we need take a long hard look at Sunderland and Aston Villa. That is what we are going to be if we go short term. It doesn't work at all.

9.) 04 Nov 2017 18:26:51
He’s never had a winning mentality haha come on! He’s never built the team you talk of due to financial restraints at clubs, and the win record shown above was with mediocre teams on low budgets and teams that needed saving from relegation and win record was even worse before he took over.

So your happy to have a so called winning mentality even if it means we go down then? Over short term solution that keeps us safe in the prem and then re-evaluate everything as and when.

I know what I would prefer.

10.) 04 Nov 2017 22:41:57
I wonder how reavaluating helped Sunderland and Aston Villa? Where about are they in the CHAMPIONSHIP?

And your idea of winning mentality differs from mine. Yours seems to be very similar to Sam and Moyes. How many trophies have they won in over 40 years of management? Sorry yes Sam has never got a job at a top club. Probably something to do with winning games.

Just because he scrapes by every season doesn't mean he's the messiah. If he was any good he'd have lasted more half a season and put that winning mentality to some use for a change.

11.) 05 Nov 2017 02:28:37
Sunderland and villa spent too much compared to there income, totally different circumstances.

And what’s with the CAPITALS?

Maybe he just didn’t fancy relegation battles year on year with teams I’ll equiped to compete, and were does the messiah come into it? Who exactly do you think Everton are at the moment? We are a mid table team that occasionally gets in the mid top half, Dyces Burnley is doing and looking better than us, Tuchel is rumoured to be the next Bayern manager, what makes us more attractive to these managers?

Wake up. Or should I write, WAKE UP! Haha.

12.) 05 Nov 2017 08:31:53
Their expenditure was nothing to do with it. The problem was they went for short term fixes. Bringing a manager in to get to the end of the season and hopefully stay up. They had no long term plan for the team or the manager. Additionally they went for managers like Sam.

The capitals were to spell out clearly where they are now.

And your point about Sam not wanting to stay at a club because he doesn't a relegation fight year on year is a statement about him not being able to improve the fortunes of the team and I agree with you. He doesn't improve teams and the mess is left behind when he goes.

Bw2412 find your post a bit hypocritical, calling grumpy to the Ed’s does come across a bit personal.

You posted on 15 Feb 2018 06:07:14, that post was very opinionated and sarcastic, could be seen as off putting?

And this is a direct quote from you ending that post;

Opinions should be welcomed from everybody and I certainly wouldn't challenge someone's intellect if they have different opinions. To do so is just demeaning and does not help your argument.


It’s a game of opinions. Grumpy just wants to keep loyal to his as we all do.

Everyone comments on people having opinions then slates grumpy for his, grump keep it up old fella without your input then this post dies Days ago.

I was all for giving Sam a go, he has lost me a bit, but if we are going to change him then we also need to change the DoF. We got this wrong once and if we are to persist with it we need that done right, then we need to identify the way we are going to play and appoint a coach to suit.

For the right pair I would gladly say goodbye to SA and SW,

So it looks like young Mr Lookman sulks when not picked, causing inconsistency in training, resulting in him not being picked the following week. Accumulating in his sulking attitude having a negative impact on the team morale.
Ive said before that we don’t see what goes on beyond 90 minutes played on the pitch.
Maybe Mr Lookman has been mollycoddled at his other teams being such a standout talent at lower leagues. Unfortunately he doesn’t get that at Everton as we are more than one player and he’s still got a lot to learn, which he must find hard to accept.
Hopefully this loan at RBL will help him mature a bit as we’ll as give him game time, returning to is a better player and hungry to cement himself a place in the first 11.
He certainly is a talent and at only 20 we still got a lot to see of him.

I was not a fan of bringing Rooney back puke, but he’s here now so onwards we move. I don’t think he is the problem, although playing them together clearly was a problem, SA also sees it now, but I think playing them together higher up the pitch is where it goes wrong, surely Rooney is not slower than snids? For me he the 10 with fast wingers, or plays next to some one fast who breaks up play like Gana. Problem with Rooney for me is he tries too hard and seems to want to be everywhere, getting in other peoples space and unbalancing things.

Problem is the set up of DoF and coach is not working, no matter what coach we bring in he has to go to SW, this has to be where things are going wrong. SA is a manager so this system don’t suit him, you can see it in his interviews he don’t like not having full control.
I couldn’t even tell you who I want as next manager cause my first thought is let’s sort this DoF out, and identify a style of play and bring in coach and players to suit.
