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.

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 😂😂.

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.

Just had a pooh for the 1st time in 6 months. The world seems better when the stress levels drop!

Whoever, now takes over we need tk back him blues. Silva, Fonseca or any other must be given backing from the stands. That also must be given to the players as well.

What a 24 hours and it's nowhere near over yet.





05 May 2018 21:51:23
I could go on about Sam but I can't be arsed wasting my breath on him.

There are times in most games were we show glimpses of what this team can be capable of. Areas where if encouraged and developed we could see a team produce good football. However, it's being stifled and suffocated.

It needs someone to breathe life into it.

I'm not so disheartened by this season and I know if we get the fire and passion in this team it can do something. We still need a couple of players but I believe this team with the right direction can compete.

I'm not sure who. I've had a look over Fonseca and his brand of football would suit us. However, he's the biggest risk out of three I would choose from. He knows little of the club and the league in terms if experience but he looks like a winner and seems a very determined and fearless individual.

Silva has limited experience but he is a very ambitious character and that is a million miles away from what we have now. The football is easy on the eye but is he more of an impact manager. Plus the latter part of his reign at Wtaford wasnt great butvhow much of that was to do with our intervention.

Finally, the one who I think is an outsider but one who ticks a box as a former player at the club, is Arteta. He knows the expectation. He is learning from the best at this time. He understands how to play attacking and fluid football. However, he hasn't managed at all before.

We are though a club with more support for the manager now with a DOF and the rest of the club is more robust. It means the manager is able to concentrate solely on the football side of things. Maybe Arteta wouldn't be such a gamble.

On the DOF side I hope this is also resolved soon. Hopefully, Brands is the man to step in and Walsh is part of the scouting network although, I still wouldn't trust him in there.

For next season and the one after I'm not looking to finish in those top 6 positions but I want to see us recapture our identity. Good football and no longer afraid of competing with those above us, develop an arrogance and expectation of beating whoever it is in front of us. We look worried playing Southampton and Huddersfield at the moment.

Whatever happens though, i'm glad it's almost over. Hopefully, we can get some good news over the summer and a look forward to a brighter future.

Whoever's in charge though has to make sure they understand who we are, what we're about and learn from their predecessors.




28 Apr 2018 22:41:24
I'll get the bad stuff out the way first. The football is still bloody awful and again we look more an equal to a team below us rather than a level above.

I blame Sam because he is the one telling the team to play like this and next season or the next 10 seasons with him won't change that fact. It is who he is and his statements in the press confirm this is what he sees as good football. No understanding if our philosophy as a club or history.

Right now that's out the way. Good three points today and I'm hoping we can get two more wins and hit the 54 points tally. Cenk took his goal well today and I absolutely love him. Seeing him run 40 yards to get back and steal the ball from one of their forwards was phenomenal.

Morgan again put in a really good shift and he looks like he is getting his confidence back. He worked really well with Gana who is now improving himself due to adding an attacking threat to his game.

At the back Keane is benefiting from Jags in the team and is growing into his role now at the back. The cushioned, soft as velvet volley to Gana from Baines was a thing of beauty for the second goal and Coleman could have had a couple of goals himself today.

Finally, vlasic came in and done a half decent job. He was a bit slow at first on his defensive duties but after a rollickingfrom Jags soon got up to speed.

What I did like is he made a number of runs PAST Cenk and got into the box. Boli hasn't been doing either of these since he got back from injury and mainly does a few tricks and flicks then crosses from deep. Vlasic has a few more dimensions to his game.

All this tells me these players can play together and produce good football if allowed to. Now let's get a manager who has a few more dimensions of his own who, can unlock the talent that is evidently there.


1.) 29 Apr 2018 00:01:57
Great post BJU would definitely keep Vlasic in next game but I bet Bolaise goes straight back in.



23 Apr 2018 07:50:22
I see Sam this morning is bigging himself up again. This time breaking confidence in what Unsworth said to him when he took over. The guy will use anything or anyone to make himself look good.

I give him credit for keeping us up but not the football. He has proven as we all said that he can not produce an exciting team to watch. Not even a hint of it.

Hopefully, the board will make the right decision soon in booting him out of the club and we can all move on.


1.) 23 Apr 2018 08:59:10
Seems a last act of a desperate man to take credit for a game in which he had no involvement. Knows he's going.

2.) 23 Apr 2018 09:41:47
There is no depth to which Allerdyce wouldn't sink. To break Unsworths comments (if true) to the public domain is the lowest of the lowest. I believe that he knows his time is up and will stop at nothing to degrade our great club. Get rid of this gum chewing tosser as soon as possible.

3.) 23 Apr 2018 10:31:41
The history books will show that Unsworth managed the West Ham game. that is all that matters.
One thing we do need though, if we get a new manager, is one who will try and win every game, a winning mentality.
If we are to win a cup of any sort, then we need to be able to beat one or more of the top 6 to do it. Our previous recent managers with the exception of Martinez haven't had that mentality, and approach those games with too much fear.



19 Apr 2018 19:01:20
In what world would a manager worth his salt join us when the club are sending out surveys about the manager and staff.

It is complete and utter madness. From the top down our club is ruined at the moment. I don't see any signs that it will get any better either. There are people in every position that shouldn't be in those positions and whoever Moshiri is getting advice from needs shooting. He looks like a complete fool at the moment.

It's not just a change of manager needed it's the whole bloody lot.


1.) 19 Apr 2018 19:51:35
The nail on the head there BlueJohnUns is whoever it is advising Mr Moshiri. One of the Ed's months ago said that Mr Moshiri needs good advice. My tip would be pay Mr Hoddle whatever it takes, he is busy with other projects but I am sure he could do it on a consultancy basis, I am talking here about the footballing side from root to branch. At executive level, it would be good for Mr Kenwright to step down from an active role and Mr Elstone to depart all together. Just my two pennworth.

2.) 19 Apr 2018 20:13:17
It’s things like the survey that do make our club a laughing stock. We are amateurish at best, incompetent at worst.

3.) 19 Apr 2018 20:30:43
I don't see what the issue is. Surveys are part of our everyday lives now. You order a pizza online, have a sky engineer come to carry out a repair, get a tyre fitted at Kwik fit, all these things will mean you get an option to fill out a survey. It's how companies improve and better themselves.

Just imagine you own the club and one day everyone stops buying the pies, what do you do? Go out and buy different pies? You would soon go out of business. You would need a survey to determine whether it was the taste, the person who served them, the temperature or simply the fact everyone wanted sausage rolls.
A survey helps you improve and make changes if needed.
The fact this went out last year and no one mentioned it shows how little value it has to Allardyce keeping his job.

If the survey shows people don't like the persons attitude who sells the pies it doesn't mean he is going to be sacked, it means you look at improving his demeaner to customers and train and improve them.
Business is business and sorry to say, football clubs are businesses.

4.) 19 Apr 2018 22:50:37
Absolutely Smit. And business is built on reputation. With actions like this, ours is currently in the brown stuff.

Positive feedback is fine but when it's negative like this and it's broadcasted in public no manager is going to want to be involved in that.

I hope we get away with it but why do we have to make it hard for ourselves everytime?

5.) 19 Apr 2018 23:27:35
When things go our way it’s Sams doing, goes wrong it’s the players fault, only a handful of Social media posts he throws down the press conferences, even being booed away to Burnley and Swansea, fans do not understand my reasoning of settling for a 1 all draw.

He knows damn well he is going to score badly in the survey, had he got us in the top 6 he would be kissing the director of the surveys backside and saying what a good idea look how good I look.

If this is what gives Moshi the kick up the backside and wake up call, I for one am glad we had this in our survey.

Short of a world of sport aeroplane complete with banner and 30 odd thousand chanting for Sam to leave, I doubt we could make it any clearer to the board.

Even then Sam would say what do season ticket holders know in this damn survey.

6.) 20 Apr 2018 00:26:56
Customer satisfaction or csat scores are part of business I actually think it could be a positive step, problem most have is that it’s different and not been done before
Does anyone know who actually gets the surveys?

7.) 20 Apr 2018 02:00:19
It is interesting that Bluey says that the same survey was sent out last year.

Obviously we were in a totally different place then and there wasn't the furore about it then but unfortunately the current situation with Big Sam has given it added emphasis this year.

I think someone in charge should have seen the problems sending it out this year and stopped it. I agree with BJU that I don't think it helps the clubs status/ perception at all and won't help us in attracting new management if that is, hopefully, the outcome of the survey.

But it is what it is now. We can't take it back so let's move on and sort out the management issues which we have. San won't walk out because of the survey so give him his pay-off and find a better management team.

{Ed0333's Note - That’s one survey I would have taken my time to fill out. In fact I would have used up around 23 pens.

8.) 20 Apr 2018 06:04:55
I don't think they had comments sections or you would be right.
If they did have comments sections they will be reading them this time next year unless they get the message from the first few SAM NO NO NO.

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.

Sorry if you think I'm being rude and insulting but you just sound bitter because you want someone else other than Silva i. e. toys out the pram. Instead of judging him on his successes you are focusing on a tough job at hull plus a downturn in events probably to do with us at Watford.

It didn't seem sensible in your suggestion of a rolling one year contract as no-one in the EPL gets hired on a one year contract and would consider it as - well - a bit insulting.

NSNO I'm pretty sure are not part of the negotiations either but if it is that length of contract so be it. What does it matter?

Don't take it personal but I'm just rather direct. 😁.

What is it you how long he gets on a contract? And what message do you think it sends to both manager and player offering him a one year deal? We don't even know if he's getting a 5 or 6 year deal or are you part of the negotiations?

If your going to rant over him then keep it sensible. You sound like a baby throwing his toys out of the pram.

I don't thank Bill for anything he has done. It's not enough.

I wonder how many on here would sacrifice their home, business and health the way he has for our club. We can't question anything he has done because we have absolutely no idea the choices or options he made or had.

What evidence we do have is we are still in the EPL when others had more money to spend and fell. He then got us the right man to take over.

To think he has a motive other than what's best for the club is pure paranoia.

He's too loyal sometimes for my liking especially with Moyes. Plus he's too emotional as well at times when an iron fist is needed. However, the way our club has developed a true blue beating heart is all downto him and the people he brought in.

As for BU and KEIOC. They spoke for the minority and played on the misinformed. Then add the underhand tactics used means they get little respect from me.

It's time now though for Bill to get back just enjoying Everton again. He might start getting some slack and eventually respect from all.

Dyche is no different to Sam. The same type of football. Burnley only won 7 home games scoring 16 goals in 19 games and minus 1 difference. The two of them wouldn't know attacking football if it smacked them on their face.

As for the other Muppet Ince. WTF does he know about management? He hardly has a glowing CV.
