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!

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.

Just read it again but you know what I meant mate.

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



04 Jan 2017 21:52:41
£75 mil in new commercial revenue and the expectation of a 300% increase in shirt sponsorship revenue.

Should stop people moaning about our commercial performance.

The £80mil loan saves £5mil a year in expenditure.

The mayor pretty much confirmed we are close to getting a new stadium on the docks after mentioning the new train station.

Oh and Moshiri wants to sign more players than we do.

Only downside is the wife kicking off why I'm walking around with an erection when christmas is over!


{Ed025's Note - too much information john.. :)

If anyone has seen the stadiums this dan meis has designed then the rumour of yhe stadium being not just this but "an iconic stadium along the lines of the sydney opera house" sound absolutely spot on. They are simply stunning. It would put us on a different level. As in Nou camp territory!

I think i let out a little pee!

They are also designing the new Roma stadium.
A 7day entertainment district bars shopping etc. likely to be plan for EFC also.

I think the injury to Barkley may have a knock on effect for the rest of our buys in this window. It's potentially 30mil plus his wages in cost now over the season.

I hope they prioritise the striker and winger position as this is the main area that needs improving. However even just a striker will do for me now Sig is here.


1.) 16 Aug 2017 09:32:17
I think our transfer dealings may well be done for this window. I know we are looking a bit light up top but the caliber of striker just isn't available at the moment. If we just want a squad player then okay. I presume if we don't have any bids in for anyone at the moment then it may be that RK and SW choices are not available. To be fair to the board they have supported RK really well this window and although he has been asking for another striker and left sided defender I don't think he can really complain if we don't get them this window. For me this has been the best window we have had for a very long time both with the quantity and quality of the players we have signed for the club. Not getting any additional support may also bring on some of the younger players through at a faster rate. I would like to see DCL played up top a lot more I really think he could be a quality CF given the chance. COYB.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 10:46:05
I wouldn't be surprized if we had a loan for a striker at the end.



15 Aug 2017 21:39:04
Gareth Barry is an example to players all over the world on how to conduct yourself as a top professional.

I wish him nothing but the best of luck at West Brom. They are lucky to have him and we will miss his experience.




12 Aug 2017 21:39:16
3 points today was the important part of the job. We and other teams will play better as the season kicks on.

Koeman got it dreadfully wrong in the first half. I have never seen us play well in a 3 at the back. Also Williams AND Jags in the 3 is far too slow. It usually works better when Holgate takes up the right 3rd.

He other obsession is playing Calvert on the right. I have no idea why. You can say he put the ball in for the goal but he was pretty much a disaster there today and in preseason. However, move him to the centre and he's a different animal. He could and should have had a hatrick today. He's a kid still and I think in a couple of years he could be a top striker.

Wayne was great today. I didn't want him and he's still got a lot to do to justify the move but I'm praying he proves me wrong and today it was great.

Sandro needs discipline and he needs to be more composed especially with his passing. I think he's got bags of potential but Koeman needs to get him in a role and drill him on it morning noon and night. He will score goals and he will cause many problems for teams. His pace is stunning but it's like he's had a box of proplus before the game.

Martina started the second half slow and lead footed but eventually got going and delivered some great balls into the box. He also listened to Keane instructions and did relatively well the Stoke sub whos name i can't remember but looked pretty nifty on his toes.

Keane is good in a back four but was left exposed in the three in the 1st half. I really like him and he is constantly talking to his keeper, other defenders and men in front of him. He looks like another captain in the squad already.

Gana was MOM for most. I probably just give it to Rooney but he was very tidy. He contributed to a poor 1st half though and he's got a habit of looking backwards with the ball instead of forwards. I'm still not convinced we need both him and Snids in the middle especially against teams like this at home. Snids looks a couple of weeks away in mental sharpness to me. Still was good in the second half.

Right with all this said I'm saving one player for last.


Wow. Everytime that ball came in the box he caught it. If he couldn't catch he punched it. If there was an opposition head getting to the ball he punched through his head. If an Everton head was getting to the ball he punched through his head as well. He didn't hesitate, panicky and didn't take risks.

Then that moment in a game. It's all about to go horribly wrong. Doom is emerging. Self destruction. 'Not on my watch' you could almost hear him say. The save was brilliant. Teams now know that penalty box they need to get into has a new Lord and master and he owns it.

Utterly woeful 1st half but a better second. A solid base to work from but much more needed up front to compete.

However, loads of promise and a glint that this season could finally bring some kind of success.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 23:29:02
The signing of the summer for me Pickford, his distribution, confidence and commanding of his 6 yard box is what we haven't seen since Nigel Martyn.
The shape in the 1st half was poor and square pegs in round holes with Calvert Lewin on the right was not good and the backwards sideways passing was Martinezesque.
Schneiderlein to me looked a little off the pace today also, 1st game done, 3 points, clean sheet so not all bad.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 07:58:26
Think Schneiderlin has been off the pace in pre season games as well as yesterday.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 20:33:50
People are going on about our defense and the changes needed. Played 3 competitive games so far and yet to concede. Give the team a chance until / IF they mess up. Still wouldn't get on their backs as they need our support all season.

4.) 13 Aug 2017 21:08:11
I'm not having a go at the defenders. As I said they played well. However, the 3 at the back was a shambles and we look much better with four. Even Koeman admitted he got it wrong. You'd be absolutely stupid to not realise it wasn't working in the first half.

It's okay to call players/ team on something if it's not working and the post was not negative. I highlighted the good and bad.



07 Aug 2017 21:21:34
I wonder if Koeman wanting a winger and striker could mean Giroud AND Welbeck as he can play wide as well? Just a thought.


{Ed025's Note - they wont let both go john..

1.) 07 Aug 2017 21:55:48
Lucas Perez and Giroud would do for me, seems Arsenal are having a clearout I'll take Wenger's coat as well as its always been to big for him.



07 Aug 2017 09:46:29
If you were in any doubt of the ambition of this manager and board then Koemans words yesterday should ease those fears.

He is absolutely determined to get the best possible squad for next season and is pushing everyone at the club to make it happen.

He reminds me of Royle and Kendall and a million miles away from the delusional Martinez and dour and negative Moyes.

We WILL get better and we WILL compete. Trust this guy and these players because if we join them from the stands only success will follow.

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.

He will sign in January for atletico. We will have sign another striker then in the hardest window to buy. Let's think long term.

I'm with you Mowfee on every point. I think he was trying too hard and needs to be attacking the space not the man. He had a decent first half but should of went off midway through the second.

Klaasan is becoming vital in that midfield. He keeps the ball moving and has great awareness. Everything good went through him tonight and it was no surprise we dropped off when he came off.

Looking forward to city.

Welbeck out the three you've put up but he gets his injuries. Would have liked Kovacic, Giroud or Dzeko out of all the ones mentioned with us over the summer.
