Several online rags reporting that we are in for Aubameyang in January. just thought you would like the laugh.

Blue Tommy

1.) 08 Dec 2017 00:03:12
Big Sam did attract big names while at Bolton. Why can't he do the same at Everton?

2.) 08 Dec 2017 04:47:59
Because Aubameyang wouldn’t choose us ahead of the massive options he has.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 08:16:29
I don't think he has many options.

4.) 08 Dec 2017 08:30:52
He’s 28 and in his prime. He will not choose Everton as a destination to spend possibly his best football years.

5.) 08 Dec 2017 14:15:39
Totally agree NBTB mate, some posters on here seem to forget what Big Sam did at Bolton, good post mate.

6.) 08 Dec 2017 14:24:53
I'm not saying he will but I'm not saying he won't either. Swan, I thought you were all for aiming big?

Lukaku's boots has to be filled. Big Sam is a persuader. As I said I'm not saying its going to happen but at the same time I would not be surprised.

7.) 08 Dec 2017 14:50:19
I'm with you on that one NBTB mate, in fact I would go a bit further than that and say Big Sam has more of a chance of bringing in bigger names than Koeman did.

8.) 08 Dec 2017 17:25:18
Might be hard for some to see that GuernseyBlue but I know where your coming from. I agree he has better potential to get top names in imho.

9.) 08 Dec 2017 18:25:36
Why do you feel that Big Sam can get the bigger names in?

(Not having a pop here, just wondering what it is that gives you that idea)

10.) 08 Dec 2017 20:34:18
That doesn’t work, the question wasn’t “do you want Aubameyang”, it’s a discussion on whether we can get him or not. I’d love him but to say he has no options is ridiculous.

Look across the park at his former manager who needs a striker with pace.

Or Atletico when Griezmann leaves.

Or Real Madrid when they finally realise Benzema isn’t very good.

He has plenty of interest, do I want him, yes, can we get him? I seriously doubt it, we are probably the 8-9th best attraction in the league right now. Plenty of clubs need quality strikers, I highly doubt we would stand a chance of getting him and if so, why would he leave Dortmund to come here?

11.) 08 Dec 2017 21:48:47
Good post Swan. My thoughts entirely. Not knocking those who are viewing it differently, just can’t see us pulling it off.

12.) 08 Dec 2017 21:57:16
Simple answer. Money.

13.) 08 Dec 2017 22:20:17
Although SA laughed in the press conference today when asked about this and said “not a chance”. So unlikely.

14.) 08 Dec 2017 22:59:22
Good post Woburnblue along with the power of persuasion.

Youri Djorkaeff, Jay-Jay Okocha, Fernando Hierro, Ivan Campo ring any bells?

With Bolton now. Why can't he bring top players to Everton?

15.) 08 Dec 2017 23:11:45
Came across very coy in press conference about it really. Didn't hear him say an answer either side.

16.) 09 Dec 2017 02:46:15
Flair players without massive interest from other teams

It’s like us signing Deulofeu and saying it’s a big name, it’s not, he’s known but he’s just an exciting player, not many out there for his signature

Aubameyang on the other hand.

17.) 09 Dec 2017 02:59:42
I didn’t hear an answer one way or another but have heard him state Lukaku needs to be replaced which has been glaringly obvious lol.

18.) 09 Dec 2017 13:32:01
Good point Southern Toffee.

Swan that post made me burst out laughing. Don't take it personally. Your young so you probably don't know those players mentioned. You couldn't know them being young.

It is an insult to those players to compare them to Deulofeu. Nothing against Deulofeu but he is in the infancy of his career.

Those players mentioned above done it all. Look them up if you want. They played at the very top.

Where I sincerely hope Deulofeu plays in the future.

19.) 10 Dec 2017 02:00:23
Oh I’ve heard of them and don’t use “nearly burst into laughter” as a way of talking down to me

The point still stands, were the biggest clubs in the world all interested in all of those players, if not then the post is pointless.

20.) 10 Dec 2017 15:07:41
Fair enough Swan. I did ask that you not take it personally. Obviously you did. I don't take on to know players before my time because I couldn't possibly know much about them. I was not talking down to you at all.

I obviously don't know who was interested in them at the time. There may well of been so called 'big' clubs trying to get them.

The simple point was they were 'big' names in the game and somehow Sam attracted them to Bolton of all places. I'm sure they plenty of offers elsewhere. But somehow Sam brought a good number of big names to Bolton. Which indicates to me he is persuasive.

Fair enough if you can't take that point that's your choice and that's fine. Finally, I really didn't mean anything personal.



20 Oct 2017 06:12:04
I was speaking to some people who are in the know after the game last night (they are fairly reliable and I believe them, but as always it's up to you) . They told me these 4 things:

Lookman is off in January because he can't settle on Merseyside and wants to move back to London.

Koeman does not speak to Unsworth very often at all, and does not ask for his input. Not too much of a surprise there.

Apparently yesterday before the match at some point Koeman and Rooney had a blazing row. I was not told what it was about.

Blue Tommy

1.) 20 Oct 2017 07:56:33
Tick tock tick tock countdown is at 75 hrs until Moshiri pulls the trigger as we certainly won't get a result Sunday

Roll on Mondays so our season can start again.

2.) 20 Oct 2017 08:21:57
Trouble is if he goes, then he goes with massive pay out that he doesn't deserve.

3.) 20 Oct 2017 09:11:53
Better than the trouble it would cause to keep him. Better of the 2 evils is to let him go imho Uran.

I wanted him at the beginning. Those 4 points may well be true Blue Tommy. Certainly would make things easier to understand if they were.

4.) 20 Oct 2017 10:03:44
Who do we replace him with? Moshri clearly believes we need a 'name' Manager and with Benitez turning us down the job has now officially become a poison challice.

5.) 20 Oct 2017 10:09:45
I think his arrogance will be his downfall!

6.) 20 Oct 2017 10:28:03
I don't believe he has turned us down as I don't believe he has ever been offered the position yet, for me we need him to get us out of this mess and to a safe position in the table, he is master tactician and player love to play for him.

7.) 20 Oct 2017 10:37:21
No point fans worrying about pay offs etc. It is those in charge of the club who accept the reality that football does not reflect any other "normal" employment situation.
It is definitely not the first and won't be the last of rewards for failure. Loyalty payments are exactly the same for players.

8.) 20 Oct 2017 10:45:47
The only other thing I got from the conversation is that Barkley would be prepared to stay if Koeman went. I personally thought that myself anyway tbh.

9.) 20 Oct 2017 11:37:01
Blue Tommy I live in the Formby area were many of the players and management live.
As for Lookman I can understand that but there can be no doubt his problem of home sickness has been exacerbated by Koemans treatment of him .
I think it is disgusting when someone inept at their job waits to be sacked when they are extremely well off already .
Koeman should be ashamed of himself and resign but he won't .
As for paying him off it is hard to swallow but it's in relative terms only a small amount compared to another transfer
Sad times to be a blue
I just cannot understand the board who must know the outcome
Someone said they read our comments but if they did he would have been gone by now as the customer is always right - oh I forgot we not customers just daft Evertonians
Very Angry Blue.

10.) 20 Oct 2017 13:32:00
Koemans pay out will be a great investment in protecting and stopping further drop in clubs assets and over all value. He is making some decisions in team selection that can only be seen as him trying to orchestrate termination. Or sabotage to insure he walks with max pay out.

11.) 20 Oct 2017 22:33:46
The Benitez turning us down story has originated from The Scum Newspaper. We all know how reliable the stories from that rag are now don't we.

12.) 21 Oct 2017 19:02:51
I've never understood compensation payments when managers get sacked. If I got sacked for not doing my job properly the only thing I'd get is a P45.

{Ed025's Note - me neither windsor..



24 Sep 2017 00:45:49
Now it gets interesting. We will know what kind of manager Koeman is in the next week or so. Davies and Niasse saved his bacon. I think he would have been out of the door if we had been beaten 1-0 today. We will see if he has learnt anything from today. He should have already learnt that we can't play 4 slow no. 10s. It will also be interesting to see if he can swallow his pride and start Niasse in the next PL game. If he starts with the same team on Thurs as today then I will happily give him a lift to the airport myself.

However so made up for Niasse. He's become a cult hero because he's the underdog, and because he is a model professional with a great attitude when faced with a difficult situation.

Blue Tommy

1.) 24 Sep 2017 02:32:52
Niasse can't play Thursday anyway. Not in Europa squad. Kenny needs to play as does Davies. using Kenny as a sub is a waste of a substitution. He should be starting. today we could of had extra attack with Lookman or Vlasic on as sub if Kenny was played from the start.

2.) 24 Sep 2017 05:48:52
I agree. The fact that Niasse can't play Thurs is more of a reason to start him against Burnley as he also has fresh legs. Koeman has some big decisions to make. IMO he can't play both Rooney and Sigurdsson unless he ditches the 2 defensive midfielders (which for me means benching Schneiderlin, who has been awful this season) .

3.) 24 Sep 2017 10:56:38
Delighted with Niasse but imho it is too early to start him. Around the 55-60th minute I'd introduce him. Get him more established and confident for a few more games before starting him.

I'm for one second saying he doesn't deserve to start. Simply saying that I think it would better for him and less pressure if it was left a couple of more games before starting him.

4.) 24 Sep 2017 10:58:22
Agree blue Tommy, Schneiderlin is liability every game he has got himself booked within 20 mins with a ridiculous tackle. Niasse is a credit to the club and his profession with his professional attitude and behaviour despite the way he has been treated. Hope Koeman has a ounce of Niasse's claass and admits he was wrong and that he is going to give Niasse a chance, because in my opinion he is what we have been missing. Thought we looked a better when Rooney went off, far to much going through him.

5.) 25 Sep 2017 09:52:48
Only problem with starting Kenny is that we become very susceptible to diagonal ball due to his size. That is only reason i can see that Koeman went for Cuco who is far taller. Kenny offers a lot more pace and quality in his crossing but bottom line is that he is first and foremost a defender.

6.) 25 Sep 2017 12:26:35
Coleman is no giant dave.

7.) 25 Sep 2017 19:46:57
I don't think size matters where full backs are concerned. Baines ain'y massive and neither is Coleman, and they've not done to bad!



31 Aug 2017 11:01:41
I take everything with a pinch of salt but according to the rags Niasse is joining Palace for £10m. Good business if true and may leave the door open for Benteke to move to us if we don't get our top targets.

Blue Tommy

1.) 31 Aug 2017 13:29:33
That's Everton paying Palace £10m?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 13:51:47
Good luck to him. Hope he gets game time there and is successful, albeit not against us.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 18:27:02
I really hope he does well. Not really his fault what has happened and has stayed professional and respectful.



07 Jul 2017 23:31:56
According to Jim White, Man Utd have outbid Chelsea.

I didn't want Big Sam myself originally but you can understand the necessity brought on by the desperate, abject performances this season. I think he's said the right things so far and if he improves our situation I couldn't care less if I like him or not. It's worth bearing in mind that we aren't that far from the top half of the season. If we put a shift in like we did last Weds every game and sign the right players in the right places there's no reason we can't at least equal last season (that is a tall order though) . I'm going for ahard fought.

Blue Tommy

Was going to say 2-1 win before, so I was close but certainly can't complain!



27 Nov 2017 06:13:43
So the question is, if Baines is injured, as Garbutt isn't registered who the hell do we play left back? None of our centre backs cut the mustard, Martina is an awful player and no-one else plays there.

Blue Tommy



25 Nov 2017 06:58:34
The main problem for any new manager is deciding on a system of play, a formation, and picking the best players to fit that system (irrespective of who they are) . Then the manager needs to stick with the core players and let them get used to playing that system. Apart from the majority of the players underperforming, the other major issue is an inconsistency in formation and team selection. Koeman used about 21 players and 7 formations this season, Unsworth isn't far off that himself.

Blue Tommy

1.) 25 Nov 2017 07:35:49
Couldn’t agree more, however I’m not sure of who and what system with the bunch we have now.
Maybe we bite the bullet, put what we believe to be the
Best on past experience and run with it for a few weeks.

2.) 25 Nov 2017 09:24:37
Agree with ALL of that but one other huge factor, the three most influential players of the last 3 seasons were not appropriately replaced. Romelu, Ross and Seamus. they were the back bone of our side.

3.) 25 Nov 2017 10:15:11
Agree. The problem being it is very difficult given our situation for anyone - in particular Unsworth with his inexperience - to hold their nerve and stick with a system and core group.

4.) 25 Nov 2017 12:28:16
I know what you all mean. It's bad times when Niasse is your best player and you can't wait for Funes Mori to get back (who isn't that good in my opinion) . I don't know what system would work with this disjointed squad but then again I'm not a top football manager. I think it may require some creative thinking, and upsetting some of the senior players.



18 Nov 2017 18:02:42
Our fans are rubbish. Now Pickford is getting loads of stick, despite the fact he has been keeping us in games most weeks. I think collectively we've turned on every single player at one point.

Blue Tommy

{Ed0333's Note - Sadly we live in an age of instant gratification Tommy. In my humble opinion Ronnie boy purchased some expensive duds and you will need time to phase these players out of the team or for them to show the reason they were bought. Results and performances will suffer in the interim and fans need to appreciate this. You won’t become Liverpool overnight (only joshing mate)

1.) 18 Nov 2017 18:32:04
Similar thing happened with Spurs and the bale money. It'll take a few seasons to get an established squad.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 18:48:40
Think people are only pointing out his mistakes mate, like we do every other player and manager. No ones having a go at him.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 19:18:10
I'm certainly not having a go at him. I said he is an excellent keeper and I think he has the potential to become even better and possibly England's number one. Overall, I think he's been one of the bright points in our season and probably the best of our new signings. However, he has an obvious and persistent weakness which is a dangerous one for a goalie. Saving shots is great - and he's a great shot-stopper, but pushing the ball back out into the danger zone is no good at all when it can be avoided. It has and will continue to cost us goals. Sometimes those goals have cost us points. I realise being a goalie is a thankless task and I know the guy is young, but it is something I'm surprised to see happen as often from a goalkeeper at this level, and it does need sorting.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 22:38:37
Yeah but we even had someone saying that Robles needs to come in for him. That is ridiculous. So many overreactions at the moment.



16 Nov 2017 22:33:11
I can't understand why everyone is going mental about Vlasic not playing. I understand that he has been one of the few bright spots this season but realistically he's only featured in half a dozen games for us. Maybe he's homesick, maybe he's just not performing in training, maybe where Koeman seemed to favour Vlasic over Lookman, Unsy prefers Lookman over Vlasic. Maybe he just doesn't fit in to the way Unsworth wants to play at the moment. Unsworth is just trying to scrape by until he can figure out what his best team is, something which Koeman (an experienced manager) could not do in 16 games. Vlasic was always signed as one for the future and I believe we have a real gem on our hands. I'm sure he will get decent game time this season under Unsworth or whoever else is lucky enough to manage our great club.

Blue Tommy

1.) 17 Nov 2017 07:31:24
Excellent post mate. This is what I’ve been trying to say for a while now but you’ve put it better than I can. There’s always going to be a player or two that misses out when a new manager takes charge and try’s to find his best eleven. This by no means means he’s been forgotten. Vlasic has been a great signing.

2.) 17 Nov 2017 21:29:37
The lad should be at least on the bench. Contraversial but I would start with Lookman and Mirralas on the flanks. Siguurdson in a definite playmaker role (Swansea right or left mid) . I will get slaughtere but Rooney on the bench.

So in your opinion Ed02 it's Walsh being in the wrong role causing most of the problems at Everton? Just out of interest in your opinion who would you be going for? If you were hypothetically the third party advice?

{Ed002's Note - Walsh should not be in the job. Dyche would be a good option although Hoddle would be my pick.}

Unsworth was taking charge of his second Premier League game EVER, with a squad in disarray and low on confidence. You can't blame him for the mess that he's inherited. Love the way everyone has now pressed the panic button and decided Fat Sam would be the best manager.

So, who do you want then Wakka, just out of interest?

We won't be getting an Ancelotti. Dyche and Howe have as much experience of managing a big club with high expectations as Unsworth has, and none of the others, including Tuchel, appear to be anything to write home about. For every Mourinho there's a Villas Boas, so recruiting someone with no experience of Premier League football is a poor decision in my opinion. People forget, our most successful managers have been former Everton players. Unsworth knows the club and the fans. Knows all of the players and the expectations. Sometimes it's about the right person at the right time, irrespective of pedigree and experience.

I agree with both of you. Despite the takeover we aren't any richer than the teams above us, so the only way for us to keep up is to produce, play and attract quality youngsters. Unsworth is the perfect man to do that.

I agree with all of the above. It's worth noting however that Rooney's goals have earnt us 9 points on their own (I've included the West Ham game in that because I doubt we would have scored a goal otherwise, he played a blinder that day) . Didn't Lukaku's goals earn us about that many points all season? We just need someone quality to fill Calvert Lewin's place (as he needs more time to develop in my opinion) and a solid CB and we are good to go in Jan.
