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.



23 Oct 2017 19:25:21
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.


1.) 24 Oct 2017 09:34:45
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 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

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.

16 Feb 2018 07:58:18
Carrying on from Geoffs great suggestion. Let's think of happier times. No managers again just players and games.

So what has been your ONE favourite game from each of our recent managers Moyes to Sam. Don't be negative just the positives.

For me with Moyes it was the United game at home when we were 3-1 down and pulled the two goals back to draw. There are loads of games to choose from but for me United I hate more than anyone. Since I've been alive I've been to EVERY cup final we've been beaten in. The three I've missed we've won. The 85 final was sickener because I had a chance for the Cup Winners but couldn't do the two. Therefore I blame United.

But from being in despair with minutes left to euphoria them minutes later, it was the quickest change of emotion I've had. Almost equally is the semi at Wembley against them.

Martinez was the Arsenal game in his first season. It was the first time in 20 years we felt like the Everton of old. We had to beat to stay in the hunt for CL. We did and in some style.

Koeman was the Arsenal game at home again. The 2-1 scoreline turned his and our season around and from then on we played some of the best football I've seen since 87.

Unsie was his last game against West Ham. I wonder if he would have been given the job from the off would the players just knuckled down and backed. Who knows?

Seeing him with nothing but passion on the sidelines was brilliant to see.

For Sam the Leicester game was Theo showing us what genuine quality players can bring to the table. A standard of player that has to be the norm now when we buy.

So what's yours?


1.) 16 Feb 2018 08:37:14
Iโ€™ve been to two cup finals and we won both. The 1966 game had to be the most exciting, despair followed by joy. The 1995 game was very rewarding in that we beat United. I lived in Manchester for four years and canโ€™t stand United nor their supporters most of whom were not born or ever lived in Manchester.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 12:10:49
everton 3 arsenal 0
we were only behind a point from 4th with a game in hand, it was like everton were really going to break the proverbial ceiling from there on and for the first time you could really sense genuine optimism and euphoria instead of forcing yourself to say "yeah we can do it" just so you could maintain a faux sense of optimism

oh how wrong we were.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 14:07:03
4-4 old trafford. moyes
0-1 old trafford. bobby
Koeman none.

4.) 16 Feb 2018 17:58:03
Blue Mike are you suggesting that in order to support a team you must have been born in the town or lived there? I have never lived in Liverpool. Newport, Runcorn, Blackpool, Accrington, Madrid, Berlin, and Newport again, but never Liverpool. I reckon I have spent more money supporting Everton than fans who live local as every home game was an away game for me.

5.) 16 Feb 2018 18:37:08
No I am not saying that you should be born in a city to support that team although I am a little old fashioned in that regards. The people I am talking about are those who are born in a place that has a team but offer no financial support to that team. They say however, that they support a big team like United but very really if ever go to watch United or have never lived in the Manchester area. I have more time for a supporter of a team like Huddersfield who go to the games and support that club regardless of the fact that they will probably not win anything.
I obviously realize that things have changed since my youth. Then you supported a team from your home town or one which you lived in. Now because of television and internet support is more global in nature. I am an old dinosaur and soon their will be non of us left.

6.) 16 Feb 2018 19:59:56
Many things come into it but the success of a team is high on the list. I am from the Wirral and used to go to Tranmere games Friday nite and Everton Saturday. But Everton were my team. I moved to Gloucestershire then Devon and Cornwall starting 1980. I have continued to go to occasional games with the South West Blues. My mates down here from Plymouth etc are die hard Blues. Started supporting in 80's in the main. They are as loyal as any scouser. Weird tho it is. So locality can be a reason, but not necessarily.

7.) 17 Feb 2018 01:51:50
I understand that delay, the people I am talking about are the glory hunters.

8.) 17 Feb 2018 16:31:33
Blue I remember that game, wasnโ€™t that the one Neville threw 2 heavy takes in one after the other and one of them on Ronaldo? The whole ground picked up, stood up and roared right through the whole second half. That was some game.



14 Feb 2018 23:11:55
ED have you chosen which way you want to sit at the new stadium yet?

River view or city view?

Let's start dreaming people. 4 years and counting! ๐Ÿ˜.


{Ed025's Note - unfortunately john i gave up my season ticket a few years back due to health reasons, but i will certainly be visiting when its built..god willing mate..

1.) 15 Feb 2018 10:07:08
thumbs down, seriously.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 11:05:16
Sorry to say I was disappointed we did not get Albert dock, Bill puled, Kirby, i was glad, Walton Park? I can still remember Joe Anderson, "I WILL HAVE NEW GROUND BUILT AT WATERFRONT IN 3 YEARS" i said at the time it was impossible and was slattered here, As you all know I don't trust Ken&Co, so will not be happy till I go down and see work in progress, remember this is only my opinion, so be gentle, LOL.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 09:54:21
Same here ED, I will try to go to at least one match though mate before the big guy upstairs gives me a red card.

{Ed025's Note - im already on a yellow mate.. :)

4.) 15 Feb 2018 11:49:04
Ah sorry to hear that ED.

Billy I'm just having a bit of fun mate. It's a bit serious on here lately.

Me I'm going for a waterfront view as high as I can get. Take a picnic, plastic bottle of wine and a straw hat. Can't wait. ๐Ÿ˜.

5.) 15 Feb 2018 12:48:46
City view, so I can look down on those other buggers for once.

6.) 15 Feb 2018 13:52:27
BJU I was saying why did anyone give you a thumbs down mate I wasn't getting at you I agree with you.

7.) 15 Feb 2018 15:23:22
If we still playing the same way then river view with picnic sounds better than watching the pitch mate. Haha.

8.) 15 Feb 2018 18:05:23
Ahaha๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ sorry Billy. I like that idea woburn๐Ÿ˜‰.

9.) 15 Feb 2018 18:35:16
Any view as long as the anfield stand isnโ€™t visible.

10.) 15 Feb 2018 22:41:35
๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ well Geoff, Billy and Keen, I'll save a glass (small) of wine for you each. You'll have to bring your own straw hat though๐Ÿ˜‰.



11 Feb 2018 19:30:10
Just been reading about Dowell. I have seen many of his matches but he seems to be getting a lot of stick.

Anyone seen him lately or know what's been going on with him?


1.) 11 Feb 2018 20:00:54
Saw him play in a Cup match and he looked the real deal. The problem apparently is consistency or lack of.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 21:32:22
Meant to say haven't seen many of his matches. By all accounts it's been since a change of manager. Hopefully, he can get through it and rediscover his form.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 22:49:29
Too cocky and showboating. good stats but thinks he's Jimmy big potatoes. Not going down well with the locals also on and off the pitch.

4.) 12 Feb 2018 07:43:05
i think he is too clever for his own good right now, he is a flair player and is trying too many little flicks and tricks that's why fans are getting on his back but you can't deny when it works he is special, consistency will come with games.
you didn't see the forest fans moaning earlier in the season when he was on fire when his skills where coming off.



11 Feb 2018 08:43:45
Want to say a big well done to Martina. He was great yesterday and even contender for MOM. Good calm delivery for the goal. Got forward and pass success rate 83%. Got close to Townsend and even the crowd was on his side. He thrived off every cheer.

Same again Cocu. Keep up the good work.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 09:18:52
Yeh mate full marks to him he's played out of position for so long, good play yesterday', well done to the whole team.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 09:41:41
What a lovely change to come on here and see positive posts. Makes for a wonderful change. I realise people do and should voice their concern about things on here but at times it can get very overwhelming.

I'm not getting carried away from yesterday. Sorry Johny1989 below I do feel you are getting a little carried away even though I voted for 7th myself. We still have a long way to go.

Still nice to have a refreshing feel to these pages. I guess expectations have been raised. The team do have ability and we will improve. Just won't happen over night. Please people have faith in your club and give them encouragement. Everyone what's and needs it form time to time.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 10:07:56
I think we're all a little bipolar on here at times NBTB. You've got a very calm positive outlook, much more rational than me. I can be rather impulsive (wife would argue) and frustration always gets the better of me.

You get some though that don't enjoy the success. Personally I forget all the bad stuff after a win. If he goes back to a Gana and Snids mid 2 I'll be livid again but it just shows who we are as a club. We want bravery and he produced that yesterday.

When the manager is positive, making the players go out and be positive and a good result, you can't help waking up with a big fat smile of your face.

So you, Johny, Guernsey and the like keep being the other side of reason.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 10:18:10
What this season is telling us is, we don't have to improve massively to be able to have a nibble at the likes of arsenal for top 6.
A marginal improvement in away form would have us comfortably 7th and close to 6th. I'm not getting carried away but with the horror show that has been this season, we are 11 pts off 6th and that is bridged with a few away wins.

5.) 11 Feb 2018 12:51:22
Its a balance thing. Sam up to now has been far to negative away from home, I suspect after his comments yesterday he will attempt to find that balance between not conceding and attack for the remaining away games.

6.) 11 Feb 2018 13:16:38
At least we are looking up the table now rather than down! I am not sure we are anywhere near Arsenal and the top 6.but maybe with the maturity of a couple of youngsters and a couple of signings we can all hope. This kid in Belgium sounds like he has the lot. Lookman will hopefully come back and go straight into the first team and DCL too. let's even hope that Walsh does indeed have an eye on one or two other youngsters and we can push on. It will make it all the more enjoyable if and when we do.

7.) 11 Feb 2018 13:18:41
Agree with you on that one. Big Sam does worry us Blues with his comments! Yes we have to win our home games. But what about the 4 or 5 thousand that go to the away games. I just hope the team has a go now at those games. Great performance yesterday by the whole team. Nice to see the positive comments.

8.) 11 Feb 2018 15:40:29
Yes Martina did have a good game yesterday and showed he does have a left foot, that dinked cross was superb and shows that somewhere in there the bloke does have ability. Having said that though he does go missing positional wise and did the same yesterday. Mangala is just a mistake waiting to happen and have to admit it was chalk and cheese when Williams came on and actually slotted in well with Keane. Sigurrdson and Walcott seem to have a roving brief and it works. Rooney partnering Gueye should stay, Gueye broke up the oppositions play along with the buzzing Davies. Rooney controlled the game, in my opinion that is his ideal position now. All in all a very good day.

9.) 11 Feb 2018 16:37:02
We are 5 wins below Arsenal with only 11 games left. Not a chance in my view. I can't see Arsenal losing half their remaining games and us winning all of ours. Can you?

10.) 11 Feb 2018 16:49:18
We are not going to catch 6th. My point is, we finished 8 pts off 6th last season and could be closer this season if we can sort our away form.
We need to be addressing why we are so poor away from home if we are to break the top 6.

11.) 11 Feb 2018 17:42:38
Do the sums Smit666. We are 11points below Arsenal = 4 wins. We would need Arsenal to lose 4 games and us win all of ours. We have Burnley, Stoke and Watford, Huddersfield, Swansea and West Ham away. and we have only won 1 away in 12 months. we also have Liverpool, Southampton, Newcastle, Man City and Brighton at home. Firstly there is zero percent chance of us winning every one of those games. and for every point we drop in that run in means Arsenal don't have to win a game in their run in. It is just too big a gap. If you believe we are in with a chance, I will give you 100 to one odds that we do not end higher than Arsenal. And I am only being cautious because of Leicester City 2 years ago lol!

12.) 11 Feb 2018 17:45:41
Win one game and suddenly we're going to rocket up the league to challenge Arsenal? Love the comedy on this site.
Short term memory loss?

13.) 11 Feb 2018 17:56:55
I don't think you understand what I am trying to say Degsy. We are trying to get nearer breaking the top 6 and this season we have a chance to be nearer come the end of the season. That is what I am trying to say.
I know we have no chance of catching arsenal but we have a chance of finishing 7th again and if we can finish nearer 6th than last year then it is progression.
Sometimes Degsy you need to read the post through 1st before replying. Rather than replying to what you think you've read.

14.) 11 Feb 2018 18:36:21
No mate. I understand what you are saying. your words were to have a nibble at the likes of Arsenal for top 6. What my post says is that even if we win ALL of our games, then we will still need Arsenal to lose 4 of their 11. And if you think we have any chance of winning all of our remaining 11 when we have only won 1 away all season, then I think you are being "slightly" optimistic. I am happy we are looking just above us. but even thinking about getting near Arsenal is an impossibility.

They will probably win at least half of their remaining games if you look at their fixtures which will put them on around 60 points. Even if we win all of our remaining 11 games we will be on 67 points. that's a tall order even for Man City. never mind Everton. don't fall out with me though. looking upwards is better than down.

15.) 11 Feb 2018 19:01:40
Read the 2nd post Degsy. We are not going to catch 6th. That is what I said to your reply. I am saying next season we need to improve our away record to get nearer arsenal, but this season we have a chance to be nearer than last season, and that would be progress. Your stats about what we will win I somewhat agree with. My post was about what we need to do next season mate.

16.) 11 Feb 2018 19:12:10
What he's saying degsy is that we can finish closer this season to 6th than last year. Last year we were 8 points off 6th but this year could be 6 or 7 points from 6th. Still not 6th but closer.

17.) 11 Feb 2018 20:27:12
Thanks blue John. That is what I was getting at.

18.) 11 Feb 2018 21:48:10
Ah sorry guys. yes I understand now.



10 Feb 2018 09:29:58
I wonder if we're the 15 fans arguing among ourselves Sam is going on about.

What an absolute arrogant tool he is.


1.) 10 Feb 2018 13:34:03
I think Sam needs to go to Specsavers. He must have misread his contract and thought it said "to try and get Everton in a Championship qualification place by the end of the season"

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.

I can't speak highly enough of the ED's. I'm not even sure what you guys get out of it. I'd just like to say thanks for putting up with us.

As for the club I'm grateful of Bill. He's always tried to do the right thing. He might not have had the money or the luck but put his livelihood on the line time and again.

Moshiri is learning but he needs to be more like Levy in some ways. He seems like a genuinely good bloke who's fallen in love with the club but sometimes you need to take a step back and rule with an iron fist.

Managers and players come and go. I've never been one to slate players. I'll always put my point of view across if I believe the football has been poor, formations have been wrong or if the same mistakes are being made over again.

Don't know if I would use the word toxic but there are supporters that can't accept the other side of the argument even when proved wrong (probably me) . There are supporters that are constantly negative without reason and are blinded so much that even when things are good they still see bad.

I suppose though what we are all really saying is we only want the best for the club that we love.

I would worry about the thumbs down. There's obviously a few playing games. I don't bother with it anymore.

As for a big club? I suppose it's the criteria. Could be number of fans, number of trophies, CL wins, reputation or money.

I think in the business world it's generated income. For us fans it's success. For teams like us it's long term success and for teams like Chelsea and City it's recent success.

Are we a big club anymore? I don't really care. If we win a trophy I imagine we will become a little bigger in some eyes though.
