What a difference the right people make to a football club.

Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman where such a disaster but I wonder who was more culpable.

Was it Koeman with his negative tactics in his second season. In his first he played attacking and fluid fast football that saw us have one of our best periods in the second half of that season that we've had in the EPL era.

Or was it Walsh with his purchase of three no10's and not one player to come in and replace the departing Lukaku.

Looking at the players Walsh brought in and the massive increase in quality of what Brands has brought in, with clear input from Silva (Richarlson), and the difference to what the right people can make to a football club is clear to see.

I honestly trust these two with the future of this club and do so more than anyone brought in over the last few years.

Long may this continue.

Chalk and cheese mate.

So sky have their sources tell them we have a deal with Barcelona for Mina. Their sources also say he's involved with a bid for Pogba.

I'd maybe want to have a word with them sources and tell them to make their mind up!


1.) 07 Aug 2018 09:17:12
He could be involved in both lol.

Clubs don’t usually put all of their eggs in one basket and it doesn’t look like Mina wants to join us so they should be looking to offload him elsewhere.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 10:03:26
Highly unlikely a deal involving 2 players plus cash sounds very complicated with so many players to agree terms etc.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 10:06:13
I also feel like their “sources” are just people in an office trawling through other people’s social media accounts.



05 Aug 2018 20:21:23
Just coming out now we've signed Mina!


1.) 05 Aug 2018 21:25:45
I hope so after yesterday! Jags been a good servant to the club but sadly his legs have gone. No leader on the pitch yesterday. Gueye should be the captain in my opinion. Attacking midfielder needed now.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 21:27:20
Where u hear that from bluejohn I don't see it anywhere plus no mention of medical been taken.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 21:30:34
Coleman is surely the new captain in waiting?

4.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:03
I know it was only a friendly but he was poor and didn't seem to be shouting at his fellow players. Only players with credit yesterday was Gueye, Tosan, Walcott. Rest of the team CBA!

5.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:19
And fully agree with the Coleman shout.

6.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:44
Sorry missed Richarlison.

7.) 05 Aug 2018 22:28:41
A fee was agreed weeks ago. There is no ‘news’ here, just SKY scratching around for headlines.

8.) 05 Aug 2018 22:59:47
Personal terms were agreed ages ago. There was an “understanding” a few days ago that they were to agree a few. However today, the complete fee (add on, etc) has been agreed today!

How reliable this is I do not know. It is only what I know from usually a very reliable source.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 21:35:15
Where did you see this?

10.) 06 Aug 2018 21:37:33
bookies have cut odds to 1/10.



28 Jul 2018 22:07:34
Where we have the right personel we look good and can see it's only going to get better. That's upfront.

At the back Jags and Baines are far too slow and I think they both new it today. Jags looked totally dejected after one of the goals and had a look of resignation.

Now the good news and the massive difference to last year. Brand and Silva know it and are doing something about it.

Digne has pretty much done and they've been trying most of the summer for mina.

There's no buying 3 No.10 or someone because he has one good game against us.

I would though if I was them look for another CB making it two and a good no8 who adds real drive in that centre of midfield.

Pickford, Digne and Mina will add pace and aggression this defence needs.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 11:30:25
Spot on mate. Sneiderlin is not our answer. Would rather have Beni in there.

{Ed025's Note - i would rater have "miss diane" in there tit.. :)



21 Jan 2018 20:33:41
Got my fingers crossed Onyekuru gets a, work permit for next year. He looks a real talent but his attitude and humility makes him a perfect fit for us. Seems to be made from a different cloth to the other players from Belgium we've had.


1.) 21 Jan 2018 21:27:34
I've got my fingers crossed aswell BJU, since we signed him I've kept an eye on his performances yes he's gotten some criticism about his tracking back and defending and to be fair he doesn't seem to do much of it. But going forward he's a very skillful, quick player Anderlecht have used him down the left where he likes to cut in onto his right foot, he seems eager to have the ball and try and make things happen (something we are missing atm) I just hope next season we see him in a Everton kit I think the fans will really take to him.

How much we have needed a player like Delph. Hearing him today with his winning mentality means we now have a real leader on the pitch.

It was infectious on Sunday as I must have seen almost every player having a go at each but in the right way. There's no resting on any laurels with people like this in the team.


{Ed025's Note - he seems to have a good attitude john and i though he played very well yesterday, im very happy with him mate..

1.) 03 Sep 2019 02:54:46
Yes we have needed leaders for years and Delph is certainly that, good footballer too.

2.) 03 Sep 2019 11:22:48
It came as a surprise to me if I am honest but he's started brilliantly and we needed more leaders on the pitch.



01 Sep 2019 23:24:02
Really good game today. Loads of room for improvement which is great news as it shows where this team can go.

Starting off with the back line. Coleman for me is making a few mistakes lately. He isn't getting forward enough although today was not the day to do it due to how Wolves play to exploit these positions. However, I felt today and it's happened a few times already this season he isn't inline with the rest of the back line. The first goal for Wloves could have been avoided.

Mina has been really good and is justifying why we bought him. I rate him higher than Zouma. Keane continues to improve.

Digne was terrible 1st half then after Silva obviously got into Iwobi at half time to provide more support it all changed and he was excellent second half.

Gomes and Delph were superb in the middle and had to be extremely disciplined. Delph showed what he was bought for. Covered better than Schnids and had more to his game today than Gana. He was brilliant.

Siggy and Ricky clearly have been unleashed after getting goals in midweek and were back to last season's levels. Siggy who against Villa was shocking was full of running and was available in all the right areas.

Ricky was my MOM although there many for the accolade. Two goals, a guy sent off and some excellent tackles, he was sensational. Add in Iwobi was fantastic again and Bernard came on who kept the momentum going.

Finally Kean. I thought he did okay and he's going to get better. Loads of running but he clearly has much to learn. His character will be tested after having rollicking as from Delph, Siggy and Digne for not doing enough or making a simple pass. He lost possession in the wrong places a few times but he's going to learn. I think he's going to be a real talent for us in the years to come but we'll have to be patient.

Overall 6/ 10 against tough opposition. Silva though a good 7/ 10.


1.) 02 Sep 2019 09:01:35
listen kean is 19 years old, you can see he's got the rawability and he's got the know how of knowing where to be and what runs to make, really unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet yesterday, but the goals will most certainly come, as you said he does have much to learn it was his fifth game in english football.

2.) 02 Sep 2019 16:11:10
HHe is a good prospect but a more experienced sterienced striker is needed in the short term, we are asking a lot of him.

3.) 02 Sep 2019 18:30:54
I just hope we give this kid a chance and space to grow. DCL is getting pillared every game because he doesn't score. Kean might only get 5 goals this season as well but he's very, very young.

We don't have a good track record as fans in supporting young players.



My current opinion on Everton

27 Aug 2019 14:19:40
{Ed's Note - BlueJohnUns has posted a new article entitled, My current opinion on Everton


1.) 27 Aug 2019 15:33:09
would have been a decent article if he'd left out his usual rant at those that disagree with his views, still there's none so blind.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 15:59:47
I agree lagoon. 😉.

3.) 27 Aug 2019 16:51:52
Good article BlueJohn. Some bits were spot on and some not so but that is just opinions.

Patience is the key here. Not never ending patience but they say don't look at the league until 8 games have been played and that's what o tend to do. Look at our form over 8 game periods.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 19:53:51
It was a good read BJU. I agree with a lot of it. 👍.



08 Aug 2019 19:26:33
That Iwobi deal has made a big difference to the window for me.

I wasnt fussed on Rojo and think Gibson has the chance to make it into the 1st team squad. He looks a great player for me and with Holgate we've got a couple of good under studies. Add that Gbamin can play there we should be okay.

Iwobi is a very good player and is young. He can also play upfront and gives us a couple of options.

In Kean we've got a very good striker and his technique especially shooting is just what you look for. When you add him to Iwobi, Bernard, DCL, Richarlson, Gylfi, Walcott and Cenk we have a very versatile forward line.

In the centre you've got Gbamin, Gomes, Davies, Delph, Schnids (for now) .

On the outs. Brands has done an excellent job. There is still a month to get out even more as well. I suspect Kev, Schnids, Oumar, Cenk to also move on.

For me it's been a good window. And easily enough players to get Jan when we can dip in again if needed.

The people moaning on here need a reality check. We're good enough to go 7th but depending how easily some players adapt we could push higher.

It's another year of progression in the squad another year we have reduced players not good enough for the top 6 and the potential value of the squad will surely only improve.

Time to back them on the terraces and be the twelfth man. If we do, as we did in those big games towards the end of last year, then we can do anything. If you can't step up to that then just give your ticket back to the club.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 20:27:11
Absolutly agree not even 3 years ago we were dreading transfer day we've kept are best players spent 80 mil on improvements you are born a blue not how much we spend.



08 Aug 2019 15:37:13
Looks like we're all done.

It's been a decent window although we should have got a good quality CB and should have replaced Lookman. For me we are light and not strong enough for a real chance of pushing the top 6. Should be best of the rest though.

Rojo might come in but he's 4th on my list of CB at the club.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 15:56:12
Still think there will be a late suprise.

{Ed025's Note - im not so sure mate..

2.) 08 Aug 2019 16:08:04
Have to agree with ed. Bit of an anti climax, but overall been a good window, yes we're prob a bit light in some areas but across the first team and 23s we've shipped out 25 or more players got some quality in. Will be the best of the rest with a chance of top 6 if one of them has a poor season. Roll on Saturday.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 16:56:49
Decent window but yet again priorities have not been addressed. CB, RW and could be argued a CF. Moise is a very good prospect and young, is he another Lukaku! Doubt it. Pennington a good CB allowed to leave on season long loan, a mistake in my view.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 17:12:35
Suprise, suprise.

You could point that finger at every club except Villa who have done a Fulham. No one has done mega business.

Give it time. If we've learnt anything in being Evertonians it's that patience is a must in every transfer window.

In the same interview he spoke about not wanting the Leicester job but when asked about the Everton job refused to talk.

Might be nothing and hope it that's the case.

I don't rate him myself. However, Koeman and Walsh haven't let us down so far so I will back him 100%.

It's alright him getting his fire and passion back but I don't see him getting his pace and acceleration back at his age to play in Barkley or Roms position.

Either way I'd rather have Brahimi or Strootman and longevity than a short term fix that is not guaranteed on current form.

If he does come fine but hopefully not at the expense of players that will improve our squad and more importantly the first 11 and show ambition from the club.

It was a crazy Quality and Race. I've never seen anything like that before in qualy but then F1 needs stories right now and this season its providing them.

Red Bull are the biggest story for me after the summer break. After taking huge strides forward they've slipped way back and Renault look like they could overtake them over the next few races. They were super impressive.

How Vettel got away with his lap I don't know and I totally agree on Leclerc. I like him and he's fast but like Verstappen he doesn't the have the cool head of a Hamilton at the moment.

His manoeuvres at the weekend should have been penalised. Instead they've given permission to everyone to rip up the rule book. This gives the advantage to people like Leclerc, Verstappen and Vettel who are affected under pressure and more aggressive and less to someone like Hamilton and Bottas who are more controlled and measured.

On the other hand it's made it more exciting and more importantly given us talking points.

Plus it's going to get more ridiculous when it goes Qatar.

I used to go all over the world to watch England but it's not the same experience anymore. Plus the interaction with the players is different on tour to what it used to be.

A player that was worth half the price we paid for and because of the ridiculous wage we gave him cannot get rid permanently.

It'll be interesting to see how much of his wages we are paying during his loan.

Why do you say that DC? Who has been good enough to jump into our 1st team?

Kenny has been given a chance but hasn't been up to standard. DCL has been given plenty of time on the pitch, Davies is still learning but does get game time and was made captain by him, Kean brought in at the tender age of 19. Gibson brought into the squad and plenty given a chance to impress during preseason. Finally, a manager and DOF getting players out on loan, getting proper experience instead of wasting away in the under 23s.

All that in 14 months at the club. What more do you want him to do?

I can't argue with that Ed. One of the most frustrating players. 27 goals in his last season with us though, so if we can get Kean to that level I'll be chuffed.


{Ed025's Note - yeah i hear that john mate..
