So it turns out the Gabriel Barbosa link was a load of BS as he has signed for Flamengo for the rest of the season.

BitterBlue

{Ed002's Note - That was explained ages ago.}

We were never going to get him, pure journalistic rubbish mate.


2.) 09 Jan 2019 15:44:52
Cheers Ed, I haven't been on the site in a fair while so hadn't noticed. I can't say i'm too bothered either.

{Ed002's Note - You are right not to be.}

Latest reports are saying we’re linked with 3 players, Eder Militao (RB) , Ndombele (CM) , and Thorgan Hazard (LW) . Is there truth in any of these Ed?

BitterBlue

{Ed002's Note - (1) I am not aware of any Everton interest in Eder Militao. Two English sides interested in the summer knew they would need to pay well over the odds if he was to move to England in order to get a work permit. That hasn't changed and I don't see a move to Everton as an option at all. (2) Hot off the press is that Lyon say they have not spoken with Everton about the player at all. They are aware that many clubs including Barcelona, PSG, etc. have been looking at their players including Ndombele but they will only sell one player of note this summer and it would be under theri terms - this is the approach they have used for some years. They have spoken with three sides - PSG who were told they cannot afford him, Spurs and Manchester City. You would need to ask why, even if he were available, he would leave a club doing well and playing in the Champions League for Everton? So it is reasonable to assume Everton has looked at him, but I think any move would be unlikely. (3) I am not aware of any Everton approach for Thorgan Hazard who is playing well in Germany for a side doing well, and also playing in the Champions League. He turned down a move to an English side last year and I can't see what would attract him to leave the Champions League and success in Germany to join Everton. Given all of that, pretty much the last thing Everton need is yet another LW.}

I think we should be looking for a striker as our no1 and probably a promising right to to bed in to replace Coleman in he coming years.

{Ed002's Note - Everton has been looking for a striker.}


2.) 29 Nov 2018 00:36:08
any forwards you know of interest from everton ed that are not previously mentioned on here.

{Ed002's Note - No Johny - Sala is one they are keen on.}


3.) 29 Nov 2018 15:48:37
Cheers Ed, as you said though, unless we achieve something tangible this season it'd be hard for any of those players to have their heads turned by us given their current situations. The "one player of note" wouldn't be Fekir would it? Seems like they are resigned to losing him.

{Ed002's Note - Any one player of note - Fekir, Ndombele, Aouar, Depay.}

Usmanov rumours once again surfaced as he has agreed to sell his 30% stake In Arsenal to Kroenke for £600 mil by 3 p. m. today. Whether he will go on to invest in Everton is another matter. There’s a lot of factors at play with this one, perhaps he is relocating out of the UK with the recent sanctions both him and other Russian oligarchs have been hit with. Interesting to see how this one folds out. I won’t be holding my breath.

BitterBlue

1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:31:47
Isn’t he Ukrainian? And I understood it was because he had no say as not a board member. Not dismissing what you’ve said just putting in what I thought it was about.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 18:33:35
I’m not entirely sure Big C. He may well be Ukrainian, and has sold his shares due to the factor that you mentioned. I’ll be crossing my fingers and toes that gets on board with our project.


3.) 08 Aug 2018 00:23:28
He’s an Uzbekistan Russian, whatever that implies
My bad . His business partner and financial advisor however is Mr Moshiri . I’m sure we’ll all just have to wait and see and perhaps keep everything crossed.

Hi Ed, was just wondering, with Silva recently coming out and saying “We lost one or two targets to major clubs”, do you have any insight into who these targets where?

BitterBlue

{Ed025's Note - i dont to be honest BB but one of them i guess would be malcom i would suspect mate..


1.) 23 Jul 2018 19:16:47
Malcolm - Roma . Shaquiri - Liverpool

From what I’ve heard.


2.) 23 Jul 2018 22:20:44
I don't think we were in for Shaquiri myself.


3.) 23 Jul 2018 22:52:25
Ronaldo? 😂😂😂.


4.) 24 Jul 2018 07:36:14
I think last season shows a total lack of planning / care from Koeman / Walsh with regards to planning. I remember walking to the first game thinking I was made up with the signings ( how little I know) but could not work out what our formation / first 11 would be.
They were like kids who hadn’t eaten for a month and suddenly presented with a banquet.

We should have been suing them for neglect, not giving them a wad of cash to get out the club.

I see things very differently under Marcel and Marco. They DO seem to have a plan.
Let’s hope I’m right this season eh.


 

 

12 Jun 2018 19:17:07
Any truth in the links to Marvin Plattenhardt Ed? I do watch a fair bit of Bundesliga when I can and think he’d be a solid signing. Still needs some work on the defensive side of his game though.

BitterBlue

{Ed025's Note - nothing on him this end as of yet bitter..


1.) 13 Jun 2018 14:44:36
I really hope not. German international sounds nice but he’s not even going to get a game (Jonas Hector is first choice) in probably the weakest position of that team.
If Everton look to the Bundesliga for a left back, surely the only target can be Philipp Max, what a player he could be for us. und together with Antonee Robinson he could solve this issue for a long time to come.

Ed why do you think our recruitment/ business plan has been so catastrophic over the past 5 years? I think everyone thought we’d really kick on post Moyes but we have completely regressed. Is there any one person to blame for this? The players we’ve bought and managers we’ve hired just haven’t been good enough (I’m excluding this season as it’s too early to call) . Has it just been a case of “the squeaky wheel gets the oil” type of attitude from our board which has led them to make quick, ill informed decisions? Sorry for all the questions, but I just find it staggering how a group of professional businessman who have been in and around the game for some time can just continuously make terrible decisions.

BitterBlue

{Ed025's Note - its a mixture of things BB, bad recruitment of players and managers from a board who have been looking for a quick fix, add to that the pressure put on the team by the supporters who are looking for the glory days to come back and its a cocktail of disaster, poor decisions on manager choice and players has meant that we are no further down the line than when moyes left, and to be honest things wont improve until we get some stability and back the manager and DOF to get things right and are given time to do so mate..


1.) 23 Jan 2019 12:26:03
I know some will try to lay the blame solely and fully at the feet of Mr Kenwright BB, but those around him, and there are a lot of people, are imo more culpable than him. I agree with Ed025 that what's needed now is stability and everyone, fan and board member alike, pulling in the same direction. We can get out of this mess. We can. And we will. But, as said again and again, it's going to take time.


2.) 23 Jan 2019 17:12:47

I really think we can get something from the game on Sunday but I can't seem to shake this impending sense of doom. Had butterflies in my stomach all week thinking about it haha.

BitterBlue

1.) 29 Nov 2018 17:32:16
Anything can happen in a Derby, the big positive this time is a manager who has stated we will not hear the word fear in the dressing room.

In the past, we have been beaten mentally before even stepping onto the pitch.

This squad of players are capable of giving a good account of themselves, it is all-on the Day, regardless of how well our neighbours are playing, we have a fully fit squad who are starting to gel as a team so fingers crossed.


2.) 29 Nov 2018 18:30:57
You'll never have a better chance than Sunday, we're not really at it at the minute and have been a little in and out all season and I've been told your playing very well, so you may have something to shout about for once come Sunday night.


3.) 29 Nov 2018 18:43:13
Excited as first time in a long time going to a least try and win. Always wondered why we have tried to park the bus against higher ranked teams.


4.) 30 Nov 2018 19:04:53
A few reds fans have said that to me Waro but you are unbeaten in the league and your strikers are scoring goals. I haven’t seen much of you this season in the league but you can’t be playing too badly with the results you’ve had.


5.) 01 Dec 2018 12:00:43
Defence like a wall! Everyone talks about them going forward. 13 league games played. 5 goals conceded. that's title winning stuff believe me. Van Dijk is a mountain like Mina but also nifty with his feet. I said at the time he was all they needed. Last season they scored but they also conceded. 5 in 13 is almost as low as 1 in 5 games. Any team will win a lot of games with those stats. especially if they can score a few too. They have only scored 6 more than us. so you can see why they have won so many more points than us. we were conceding every game prior to Mina coming in.


6.) 01 Dec 2018 16:42:29
I support Everton, love football. For me if you love football then you have to recognise quality in other sides and even though we are rivals (in this City more than others I would say we have families split red and blue down the middle) with Liverpool, have to admit they are quality, that front 3 has to be the best in Europe at the moment. Their manager has also tightened up their defence (always a weakness prior to this season) . One thing I will say, I and my brother have never been to Anfield in a league game, silliness I know but we will not give them our money.


 

 

26 Nov 2018 13:53:33
Some high praise for Marco Silva coming from Coleman. Has said it’s a joy to play for him, he’s very demanding in training and in games but is also a great guy and often checks up on how the players families are doing. Also highlights how he has made not only quality signings but good personalities since he’s been in charge. One very happy camp indeed. Is it fair to say we’ve finally got things right with this one?

BitterBlue

1.) 26 Nov 2018 19:02:58
Yes but didn't Allardyce also ring the players from his golf course in Spain to see how they were doing in training?


2.) 26 Nov 2018 20:04:49
Good one Smit, yes Big Sam was all heart but I don't believe he actually rang the players, I believe he just sent a text, not one to waste time on such trivial matters.


 

 

25 Nov 2018 16:06:40
I posted about a month ago that we shouldn't get too carried away with ourselves. Something that I pointed out was the huge love in over Andre Gomes despite him only putting in a few tidy performances, I thought up until that point he hadn't really expressed himself in an attacking sense like I knew he could from his days at Valencia. I think his performance yesterday (against a very well drilled Cardiff team) showed all of us fans what he is really capable of, he is a supreme football player. If he can carry on his good defensive work with dazzling attacking performances like that then i'm going to have to join the love in.

Was just wondering what Ed’s and fellow blues thought about the Premier League asking for £250k from us to go towards Scudamore’s parting gift of £5 million. Personally I think it’s absolutely ludicrous. School funding in the city is on its arse, parents are having to use food banks more frequently to feed their children, grassroots football suffers year on year with a lack of funding and there is a homeless epidemic. Where do they get the cheek to ask for a bonus of £5 million for a guy who has earned almost £30 million over 20 years? Not only that, but in that time he has successfully managed to price the working class fan out of the game along with his cronies.

BitterBlue

{Ed001's Note - don't get me started on this mate! I am sickened by it. His mate suggests it and most of them agreed because of his 'successful tenure'. What they mean is that he made them a lot of money, as there is absolutely nothing better about the Premier League since he took charge than there is now. The money should have been donated to charity.}


1.) 15 Nov 2018 12:04:45
Completely agree Ed, plenty more worthy causes the money could go towards. Out of interest, do you know of any Prem clubs who have flat out refused to pay the £250k?

{Ed001's Note - I think there are 5 that have said no. Fulham have defo said no. I would like to think the other 4 would include both Merseyside clubs, but I am not sure. He was on £2.5m a year anyway, there is no need to give him more money.}

Would be good for the lad, has plenty to offer a bottom half of the table team, he has little chance of game time with us at the moment, even more so if we are in the market for a striker.

Is Lozano a player we’ve looked at for RW Ed? I saw today that Chelsea are interested in him.

BitterBlue

{Ed002's Note - Yes he has been looked at, but realistically there is an issue with Everton looking to PSV for players and there are other sides interested.}

I completely agree with you Mike. I was saying the exact same thing after the Bournemouth game. Siggy’s just not been at the races lately, whether it’s because he needs a rest or he’s having a dip in form I don’t know. He’s been trying to make things happen but it’s just not been coming off for him. I think Bernard is a good shout to take over his role for the next game, he seems to link up with other players no matter where he plays on the pitch, the only thing that worries me is he is very easily pushed off the balled although he could buy more fouls in dangerous positions because of this. I don’t think Silva will change anything but I’m sure it will be playing on his mind as he’s shown he’s not afraid to bring sigurdsson off early or even leave him out the team sometimes. As for Lookman, he HAS to be given a run of games now, he’s 10x the footballer Walcott is. Loses possession less, has better vision, better end product, creates space for himself better. It’s jusy baffling he’s been left out the team for so long.

Exactly what I thought watching that game last night Ace. I'm sure there are a lot of our fans that'd love us to turn up to Anfield, go toe-to-toe with them and turn them over but that's just not going to happen, whether you like it or not they are a formidable team. We should look to slow play down and frustrate them, they've shown time again they're a bit wobbly when teams do this, and then pick them off on the counter, much like we tried to do with Chelsea.
