Hi all. I wasn't gone for long but thought I'd pop on in the hope some of the frustration has lifted. For me and others.

A new manager is in the offing and I'm wondering whether we already have one lined up. The board have cleared out pretty quickly and that might be due to have ready spoken to someone.

That would mean for me a Moyes, Alardyce, Anchelotte or Tuchel. If so I would put my money on Alardyce especially his comments recently or should I say refusal in discussing the Everton job. Moyes would be utterly disastrous and For me both would be a backwards step. Anchelotte is perfect for an out of work manager but Wager looks a real gem of a manager and would prefer him.

We'll see what happens but whatever does happen and whoever we get there needs to be a bigger change in the stands. Back the new manager and back the players. Only all of us together can turn this situation around.

Big Sam does not talk about any job. standard Sam answer. So don't worry. He won't be coming.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 17:07:45
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.



31 Aug 2017 08:10:27
Just coming back from Barcelona and quite a big of talk that Vermaelen is moving to Everton but is dependant on another deal we or they are looking at (Spanish a bit rusty) .

Not a big transfer and more interested in a striker bit gives us a bit of cover.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 08:42:14
Yes . He was on loan most of last season . Also could there be a bid for Michy Batshuayi aswell as Vermaelen . Fingers crossed. But i Think the swansea striker will chose london over merseyside unfortunately.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 10:00:14
Spurs have come in and bid for Llorente so things could start getting busy now as that will bring Chelsea back n if they are really interested and could open the door for Michy.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 10:30:38
Llorente on his way to Spurs has killed off a chance of us getting Batshuayi.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 11:50:49
Be made up if we land Michy Bats, regulars on here will know my bleating on over the past year or so to try and get the player, this is one transfer I hope we get.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 13:45:56
Was thinking that self Softie when Spurs got the player instead of Chelsea, oh well back to Costa it is then.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 18:30:54
If everton really wanted llorent they could have a chance in my opinion. he's not going to get much time there but would be central to everything we do and would still be moving to an ambitious club with quality players. Plus wages would not be an issue, would probably offer more than spurs.



28 Jun 2017 23:03:48
So by Monday we look like Keane, Sandro and Cuco will be joining Pickford, Klaasen and Olyekuru. 6 players by the opening of the transfer window.

Add that Barkley might be signing and more additions very likely signing soon as well.

We've been dreaming of this day to come. However, if we do get champions league football next season what might 2018 in the transfer window look like!

Wet your pants time!


1.) 29 Jun 2017 09:13:29
Echo are reporting that malaga are still dragging there heels over Sandro they not happy with the release clause and making Sandro and us wait till his contract expires on 3rd July and they have no choice but to sign all appropriate documents for his sale so his arrival as an Everton player will be Monday at the earliest but knowing but the way malaga has acted in this I think they will try to put this of for as long as possible.

2.) 29 Jun 2017 10:00:48
I feel that's the press stirring things again, we have met the release clause it's not about a contract expiring, the delay is more likely just down to the u21's tournament and not wanting distractions which I do respect, it's a lot better than certain others who discuss their future every international break!

3.) 29 Jun 2017 21:32:13
Even if it 3rd July, he wouldn't be joining the squad then anyway (we would be giving him a break after the tournament) .

4.) 29 Jun 2017 21:38:04
Keane is done, signed sealed and delivered.

5.) 30 Jun 2017 02:05:38
Steviegee - when will that be announced?

6.) 30 Jun 2017 03:46:45
When announced by the Club?



09 Feb 2017 11:32:26
Massive news on Lukaku. His agent has said this morning that he is signing his new deal AND is not leaving in the summer.

He also said Chelsea and anyone else are wasting their time even bidding for him.

That means we can concentrate on other areas in our building of the team and look more for an understudy for Rom than replacement.


1.) 09 Feb 2017 12:56:33
Still not sure on it. Raiola hasn't exactly been 100% clear and honest in the past. Let's hope both him and rom are buying into the project though.

2.) 09 Feb 2017 15:51:06
Irregardless it makes much better reading than the 6 monthly speech of how he's actively looking for another club.
Maybe raiola has bought into the future of everton which is a good thing for us.

{Ed025's Note - i hope so too anom..

3.) 09 Feb 2017 17:03:42
Maybe a certain Russian has had a quiet word with him 😂😂.

4.) 09 Feb 2017 16:18:45
the only reason his agent called talksport is because the same station this morning where going on about how talks had stalled between Rom and the club. I have searched for this story and it seems it's just talksport once again trying to sell our players even after the agent said he was staying Danny the kopite Murphy was going on how we are not big enough for him and he will leave when one of the so called big boys come in for him. jesus makes my blood boil the way these guys can just make stories up and from now on talksport have lost me as a listener.

5.) 09 Feb 2017 20:40:52
In all fairness I would hope no one listens to talksport ever again. They have recently (last year) been bought by the owners of the S*n. Think we should stand with the reds and boycott the station on this principle.

Anyway I hope Rom stays and fires us to success. He could become an absolute blue legend of he does.

6.) 09 Feb 2017 22:31:54
Stopped listening to that station years ago mate. Bad enough with that bloated buffoon in the morning, now they've added Jim White who's Whitney voice goes right through me.

7.) 10 Feb 2017 16:26:36
Danny Murphy decent enough player but his punditry is league 2.Regarding talksport as soon as sun owners to control that was enough, and many former reds and indeed Colin Murray resigned. respect.



04 Feb 2017 20:48:29
How refreshing is Koeman.

In the Moyes days our aspiration for the season was reached when he made his "we've reached the 40 point mark now it's time to kick on" statement.

With Martinez it was that we will reach the stars when everyone could see we were a team deteriating with each passing game.

Koeman today is happy with the result but he wants perfection in every game. The players are starting to sound like him. Lukaku said it was good to score but they are disappointed to concede the goals.

I'm going to put this up after every game until its impossible: we finished 5th when 11 points behind 4th with 10 games to go. Now we've got a manager with more than just plan A.

Keep believing blues.


1.) 04 Feb 2017 21:40:47
Obviously you have to be happy and satisfied with the result, however letting in three goals at home is not acceptable. When three ahead we allowed them to dictate the game, not acceptable. At half-time Williams was knackered and should have been replaced, same with Barry.

In the summer we need at least one new centre-back and maybe two. We have had many games over the last few weeks an it is hardly surprising that the older players can't last 90 minutes. Hopefully as the program gets less intense we can move forward and pass at least one of the teams above us. Liverpool are in free fall and United and City are not doing overly well. We can do it, COYBB.

2.) 05 Feb 2017 00:56:10
Just support Koeman/ Everton and leave the past in the past before Moyes took over at Everton we had been lucky Year after year just not to get relegated, Moyes turned that around and we became regulars in the top 10 and even getting back into Europe where Everton belong, he had a mental block against the top 6 sides and always went for a draw which is why we never won against them. The way he left will always leave a bitter taste but I for one will always be great full for what he done for us. there are good times ahead boys let's just enjoy it 😀.

3.) 05 Feb 2017 09:45:27
Lol S1878. Your post begins with leave the past to the past then the rest of it talks about the past. Not having a go mate. Just thought it was funny.

4.) 05 Feb 2017 18:26:34
Just read it again but you know what I meant mate.

5.) 06 Feb 2017 07:26:54
I do, and 100% agree too.

A really good win today and there wasn't much wrong in any area of the pitch.

The back four were very good today. Kenny was reliable but extremely cool under pressure. Holgate had a dodgy first half but came back strong in the second and his pace is vital when paired with Williams. Williams seems to have gained some confidence after the midweek game and was much better and his anticipation was spot on. Martina had his best game for us and even threatened when going forward.

In midfield Davies seemed to have been affected by the clash of heads in the 1st half but did better after the break. He's so important in connecting midfield and attack. Rooney for me was ineffective until moved forward when he caused them much more harm. His ball for Calvert was inch perfect.

Gylfi for me is starting to thrive and he making things tick up front. Some of his movement is unbelievable and his work rate is easily the best in the team. People can say what they want about his price but I think he's a snip at what we bought him for.

There was quite a few on here saying Gana plays better with Davies than Snids and I totally agree. Where Snids and Gana seem to get in each others way Davies is more mobile and we seem to cover more ground with these together. And covering more ground is what Lennon is doing for us as well. He gives Kenny help and covers pretty well.

Pickford is awesome. Let's leave it at that for him. But finally Calvert is growing into a fine player. He's young and raw still but what he lacks in experience he gains in endeavour. He never gives up. Ever. And he wins chances that most would give up on. Especially a certain Rom.

A great win. Good start for the new management and everyone can stop panicking now. 3 wins 1 draw and 1 loss in the last 5 premiership games is hardly relegation form so hoprefully we can start looking to closing the gap on the top 6.


1.) 02 Dec 2017 22:22:28
Good post.



02 Dec 2017 09:05:02
I'll be honest and say I won't be applauding Big Sam or little Sam but I will be applauding the team onto the pitch. I've made it clear what I believe. However, I won't be slating every poor performance and blaming the manager. I never want anyone who's involved in our club to fail no matter who they are.

For me though I'm sick to the back teeth of managers. It's all that's talked about now and is the constant focus since the final year of Moyes.

I'm also sick to death of fans talking about bad performances of players but never see the good on the pitch even when we win. A few on here singled out players from our 4-0 win in midweek to have a go. They're low on confidence but gave everything on Wednesday and even though some came up short maybe, you can't fault the effort.

Let's start today with a new manager, backroom team AND a new outlook on the game. There were some on here that would give their views on every player and how they thought they rated. We'd agree or disagree but they were balanced views. However, too many now focus on the negative performances.

Its time to look forward now and hopefully a move towards the top half of the table.



1.) 02 Dec 2017 10:07:54
Bloney good post mate, the lads played out of their boots on Wed I think they will get over this misfiring start, and we did have all the Top Dogs one after another, I now see of the other teams playing them most are loosing, no doubt about it Big Sam talks the talk alright good little dig at Silva, anyway Tis the Season of Goodwill coming up so no more moans till the transfer Window in January eh, going to be a good un me thinks.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 10:54:15
I’m curious as to how this will play out tbh. He’s not really had the chance to go much further than survival in the league. I don’t see us struggling in the way his reputation as a manager would indicate, especially after last Wednesday. I’m not saying we’re all ok now, but I’m more optimistic.

He’s got 18 months so let’s see if he can make the most of them. If I was him I would be moving hell and high water to shrug off the fire fighter image and see if I could be remembered for winning something instead. Let’s face it, this is the only chance he will ever get at this level. He’s kind of admitted that already.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 12:49:52
So you’re having a go at people for being negative and asking people to support the club

But won’t applaud the manager who needs all the support he can get.

4.) 02 Dec 2017 13:08:33
Bit stupid to be critical of anything at the moment. This is the first game of the new managerial reign so let's give them a chance and full support. Not most people's choice but that is behind us now so let's move on.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with that mike..

5.) 02 Dec 2017 13:13:27
Did you not applaud Beardsley, Albert, Sheedy, Johnson etc then?
If they represent Everton Football Club why would you not applaud?

6.) 02 Dec 2017 14:37:36
Wow, just shows that opened a can of worms, Good Lord.

7.) 02 Dec 2017 15:35:27
Swan you had a go at Rom for being our top scorer and being our top EPL scorer so hardly one to comment on negativity.

Mike I'm not being critical of the team only STUPID supporters laying into our own players after a 4 nil win.

And Wakka I did applaud them because they were worthy of being at the club.

My post is about being negative on negativity (two negatives = positive) !



03 Nov 2017 22:18:04
Just a question but what do people see different in say a Tuchel/ Ancelotte to a Dyche/ Alardyce?

Also why do we think a manager who can win trophies and manage big egos can't get players motivated to get out of trouble or a manager that is used to fighting at the bottom end of the table can't manage a top club?

It's strange how we all put managers in these boxes.

I'm not interested in who you want but more interested in what you think the qualities are for managing a top club and what the smaller / less successful teams need.


{Ed025's Note - im only speaking on my personal view john, but i see a dyche / allardyce manager as one who will keep you safe from relegation and expecting their club to reach the dizzy heights of the fringes of europa league football, a tuchel / ancellotti will expect nay demand money and resources to enable their club to challenge for honours and CL football..

1.) 03 Nov 2017 22:55:56
Maybe it's the intensity that the struggling clubs have that the Alardyces tap in to but when at the top end it's the consistency and coolness under pressure they struggle with. Almost a masochistic mentality.

{Ed025's Note - very possibly john..

2.) 04 Nov 2017 07:51:24
If it is him, I can see Dyche with his commonsense and methods being a success at this Great Club and hopefully here for a long time.



01 Nov 2017 18:46:59
Dyche, allardyce, Nuno and the like. I've never been more embarrassed to be an Evertonian.

What's worse is that fans are arguing over which one of these second rate managers they want. None of these are good enough.

The dream we had of moving up into the top 6 are gone and now is the time to simply establish ourselves in the league all over again.

The blame is with all of us. Fans, board, manager, Walsh, players, the lot.

Short sightedness is going to mess the next appointment up again with one of these choices and set us back to the Smith/ Moyes era. I'm hoping Moshiri gets his way and gets a more adventurous appointment but I fear panic is suffocating everyone's judgement.

If we win 2 or three games coming up we could be mid table. Do we then sack one of these and go for someone better, then when they take us up a level get some better again?

Stop panicking and start thinking about where you want us to go as a club realistically. Then start thinking of the manager that will take us there.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 19:04:18
Good post and totally agree.

2.) 01 Nov 2017 19:11:39
BJ agree with all except for fans to blame. many many of us have been there for decades through good times and a lot of poor teams and poor managers, and we are still going. there are a few septic sections at times BUT they cannot be blamed for buys, formations, tactics, training, style of play. that truly rests with those within the club. and we will still be there supporting them.

3.) 01 Nov 2017 20:35:05
I have to assume that the Board and those being paid big bucks know what is going on and in that case know a lot more than us.

4.) 01 Nov 2017 21:26:32
I've been going for 35 years Jcl and never known such hostility towards our own players in all that time and we've had some pretty awful teams.

We all have a responsibility and I don't mind accepting we as fans have fallen in our standards at home. Away we are still awesome by the way and could show our home fans what supporting a club is actually about.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 09:32:13
JLC1878 sorry but the fans do have a part to play in the mess we are in the booing and jeering does affect players as much as the cheering so there will negative impact on the playing staff, it also sets the tone and negativity breeds negativity.



26 Oct 2017 21:55:09
Everyone can have their option as manager. I wanted Wagner. Unsy for me was fourth on my list.

What I hadn't taken into account was how good Unsy was.

This squad has no confidence and that first half was evidence on just how fragile they are. What he done is what they need. A big dose of support. Someone on the sidelines willing you on. Giving encouragement and focus but also dictating from the touchline. He was brilliant and if I needed a pickup then it was this guy that was going to do it.

Then he got them over to the fans to thank them. Finally, giving everyone a mention at the club in his interview.

Tuchel, achelotte or anyone for that matter wouldn't have understood that this is what everyone needed. For everyone to understand we are in it together. We won't get that from anyone else out there.

He might have his areas of improvements and might not look great in a suit on TV but he has the right pieces of the jigsaw to make a success of it. And I think the men on the terraces will stand side by side with him.

Plus he has the best surname in the world. Might not have a foreign twang to it but born and raised right here in the north west.

Have your opinions but for me he's the man that can remind me and you of what Everton is and what it means. It's time for Evertonians to be reborn.

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.

I totally agree TP. I think that Stoney is the more sensible location due to costs and potential. However, the prestige of having it on the waterfront of one of the most iconic views on earth could put us on a different level in terms of marketability.

Either way it if this happens we are moving into an era that is as exciting as we have ever had it at Everton and we can start dreaming again of being at the pinnacle of world football.

To be fair to him last night he was quick to win the ball back and was tidy in his distribution. He hit a through ball to Lookman that was inch perfect and should have resulted in a goal. He also seemed to give it to the right person everytime.

It was 3 nil and we won. Not much to moan about really.

We're all the same guys. Some people on here have short memories. If you go back over your own posts you'll see you have moaned about something Everton related. I'm no different.

Some of us will seem like we are constantly moaning but in fact just trying to get a point across. Some mention it once and then get a barrel load of abuse for thinking differently and don't bother again. Then some just go with the flow.

I hope we keep getting different views on here. I've changed my mind a few times after listening to the other side of the argument. I'd also say all in this thread have contributed greatly on here along with many others. And I also think GB eats a bag full of sugar before logging on! He's the happiest person in the world!

However, whoever moans it's because they care just as much as anyone of you. If they didn't they would be on here.
