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.

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.

I do, and 100% agree too.

£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!

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!

Bad game today but we have been bad away from home all season. At home though it's been a pleasure and the spite is quickly dissipating and feeling like the Goodison of old. It's strange but it almost feels like it's mid point in a season and the next one is what we have been building for.

So what for next season? I gather how we do in the transfer window will determine that. And my guess is it's going to a big and exciting one.

The outs have potential replacements coming in and the players no longer good enough will be gone and probably already told and planning their hols.

The ins though could see a revelation we have never witnessed before and for so long only dreamed of. We've spent £90 mil since last summer but this summer could eclipse both these windows.

More important than the money though is the players it's buying and whether we spend £10 or £100m it's those players themselves that will make or break us. So don't get hung up on the figures.

Either way this season has brought enough plus points to show next season could be a great one. Maybe even a trophy you never know.

What we do know is the ghost of Martinez is well and truly put to rest.


{Ed025's Note - good post that john..

1.) 22 May 2017 08:12:08
Agree with all of the above.

I think if people believe we're going to be signing £60m stellar names because we've got money now then they're setting themselves up to be disappointed. Without CL we're less attractive and I also think the situation with Lukaku may make players hold off - if he says he'll do one more year it's a statement of intent that could attract others, but if he says he's going this summer it may persuade a decent striker to join because they'll be first choice. That said if we start pulling up trees in the Europa before the window closes people might be tempted to join.

I personally don't care if we don't sign massively expensive players for a couple of reasons: 1) Coleman has been one of our best signings this decade and only cost £60k; 2) Walsh found Kante who cost very little; 3) anyone who comes just for the money could do more harm than good like Eto'o.



18 Apr 2017 21:37:23
Europe here we come!


1.) 19 Apr 2017 07:52:25
Can't wait BlueJohnUns. It will be interesting to see how much we go for it now with the remaining games to see if we can better 7th so that we don't have to start with qualifying so early in July.

2.) 19 Apr 2017 22:04:00
I think 6th is possible and Arsenal are struggling. Either way just the word Europe gets me dreaming.

We have some unfinished business with the competition.



18 Apr 2017 09:46:18
I've noticed a big change in Koeman throughout the season and since the beginning of January. He's looking much more intense and seems to have developed a genuine belief we can do great things.

Earlier in the season he looked angry and almost fed up. He also seemed isolated from everyone and I'll be honest it looked like a Mike Walker situation.

I'm not sure if January there was a discussion between him and the board or whether clear the air talks happened between him and Steve Walsh but all parties seem more focused and all seem to be saying the same things.

There were definitely disagreements over players in January. Minolo and Belfodil smacked off a battle of control between Walsh and Koeman with neither of them winning. I'm hoping now and by the language now be being used by both of them they are more together.

This summer has to be run like a well oiled machine with little dithering and a clear focus to make an early statement. No last minute deals unless the major deals are done and the nucleus of the team is place.

That also means players not staying or don't want to be there are also gone. If Lukaku is to go we need to set this out clearly to clubs it's X-amount and by this date or he stays. The same with Ross and Kev. Sign by June or we sell and get a replacement which Gilfi looks like the natural successor for Ross and maybe Lookman will be Kevs.

Personally I think if we can do this then next season can be a real success but we can't be the Everton of old anymore and fiddle about until the last couple of weeks of the window. We need to get things in place quickly, decisively and with ambition. It might get those couple of players like Lukaku believing that Everton is the place to be next season and it can be something special.
If we don't we will end up starting behind the pack in front of us again and end up chasing when it's too late to make a difference.




05 Apr 2017 10:03:24
On the blame game for last night. I firmly put it at Koemans door.

This obsession with 3 at the back is driving me crazy. At 4 at the back we had better support going forward and were able to buffer the midfield and defence. Once he went defensive we were battered and a better team would have beaten us just like the Chelsea, Spurs or Liverpool games.

I love Koeman and I think he will win is trophies but he has to recognise this is not working. We talked about it on the chat last night before they scored that the change was killing us.

On another note Kev showed his frustration last night and looks like he will be on the move this summer. Plus a lot of frustration from Baines and Williams towards Rom. I hope this doesn't start to be detrimental in the performances coming up and undo the good work over the past 5 months.


1.) 05 Apr 2017 10:39:11
It's unlikely we will finish below 7th this season so in a way whilst I agree it sometimes works against us with 3 at the back, I can see this as being the right time to keep with it in a way to educate the team to play this way and then bring in some quality in the summer, to fit the formation better. Just a thought.

2.) 05 Apr 2017 12:17:45
Have to disagree. I can't think you can blame Koeman for the result. The changes were necessary given that most of those players were looking extremely leggy (including Mirallas) . Also, given injuries to key players in key positions his actual options are limited.

One sub that I would have changed is putting Valencia on rather than DCL. Think Valencia's hold up play and movement would have suited the style we were trying to play at that stage of the game.

3.) 05 Apr 2017 13:45:55
Have to agree with Toffee ace and CToffee.

4.) 05 Apr 2017 17:32:50
I don't disagree with taking off Kev but I do disagree putting on another CB. DCL or Valencia should have been the move instead he went with 3 at the back.

Can anyone here say that when he went three at the back we looked better and more in control? Can anyone here say 3 at the back has worked against the better sides away from home? Even against City it was awful and we defended for 90 minutes.

His risk taking with this formation has cost us positions in the league using this.

Now before you say I'm being negative I'm not. Koeman has been brilliant this season and we are a massive improvement. He will make us better and better and I've never been happier. However, you've got to call him on it when he makes mistakes. This was a mistake. RESULTS prove it.

Next season hopefully he will have the players to make this work but don't use it if we don't have them. We could have been above United today.

5.) 05 Apr 2017 17:27:13
I rate Koeman's knowledge better than mine, but I feel we missed a trick last night in not bringing on Lookman instead of C/ Lewis. I feel his speed and ball control and possibly better self confidence running at tired it's defenders in last 10 mins could have brought reward. Though thought ref gave all 50/ 50s their way if it was for assistant flagging offside we would have lost a game we deserved to win.

6.) 05 Apr 2017 18:35:28
Don't disagree with your comment on 3 at the back BlueJohn but I do think you need to look at this specific decision in the context of what was available to him on the bench.

7.) 05 Apr 2017 21:28:38
I think that frustrated me more Toffee. Why not Valencia or Calvert? Instead Pennington.

It works well at home and he's had success there but away from home it just leaves too much space in the midfield and they get overrun.

Hopefully next season he will have learnt lessons and maybe he just doesn't trust these players and panics. There's definitely something not right with this group and that 2 year plan looks more realistic each performance like this.



04 Apr 2017 12:05:05
Gutted on Saturday. I'm a bit perplexed at Koemans persistence with 3 at the back against teams that press at home like Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool. In all three games we have failed to impose this tactic which has left our midfield bereft of numbers and left overrun by the opposition.

Liverpool didn't play with a CF and therefore had a further midfielder to add support which meant their more attack minded players could roam and take up space.

Added to that Pennington kept backing off their players when running at him and he looked scared and completely out of his depth. He will get better and more confident but Saturday was not the game to blood him this season.

I imagine Koeman needs the personnel to use this system that he doesn't have now so I expect him to buy accordingly in the summer. Whatever he does this summer it is going to be very busy and at least from this season the players that will fit in well and the ones that need to go.


1.) 04 Apr 2017 17:11:14
I think this summer is make or break, we need good recruits in and get them early, if we fail to improve the squad then we are in deep trouble if we believe we can keep our best.

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 wonder if buying players from Russia is such a good idea. Billy, Niasse and Mcgeady have hardly made me think it's the place to go for top talent.

I know this guy seems different but maybe the EPL is a step to far for them on a regular basis.

To be fair to the lad he might be thinking "I've had three years of abuse from you lot so take that".

I think he has already had contact with another club and he's off. If that is the case then at least he's kept his gob shut unlike Rom.

He's got better this season and I think Ron could get more out of him. However if he is not willing to be told the truth about his performances then he's better off somewhere else. I suspect though that the somewhere else is mostly on the bench unless he like places like Palace and Bournemouth.

The only statement that is true is that Koeman said he needs to sign by the end of the season or he is gone.

£50 MIL, frozen out and who needs who more is just your usual sensationalism by the rags. As if they called the Telegraph, Times whoever else up and said "hey TG we want £50mil for Ross".

We are going to hear all kinds of rubbish and a ton of lies from the paps so let's not start getting on the manager or players back until something actually happens.

Personally I think he's gone. However, I'm not concerned as Koeman sounds like he has his targets already set out and he's just waiting to get them through the door.

Those three Degs would be 1st on my list. Seeing Tim's kids wearing Everton shirts and sworn evertonians proves his love for us.

Peter Reid would be another one. Watched Liverpool from the Kop but I've rarely heard anyone talk about Everton as passionately as him.

Spent an hour with on a train once and he never shut up about us. He sounded like me. With a derby coming up his last words were don't worry son, we'll beat the sh*ep out them. Made Carragher sound like the pussy cat (can remove the cat part if you want) he is.

Not sure what Ross has to do with it but I'm sure Ross will give Leon a few pointers on his shooting seen as Leon never got above 6 goals in a season yet Ross got 8 last year and is already up to 70% of Leons whopping 43 career goals. Every opportunity to have a go no wonder our better players want to go.

Anyway aside from that love Ossie. A great midfielder but because Moyes wanted players to be more defensive we never really saw the best of players like Osman. His football brain was on par with some of the best.

Not sure why you would pick Long. I think we want a striker like Lukaku not Long but one that doesn't just do it against poorer teams. A Lukaku that realises he is the lone striker and has to learn how to play with his back to goal, hold the ball up and make intelligent runs for the attacking players in the team throughout 90 minutes.

He's got goals in him but as lone striker you have to give more.
