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.

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!


{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!

Rom has been fantastic this season but I'm sick to death of this circus every week.

We've done more talking about him than any of the good stuff that's gone in the past 12 months. For me personally I want Barkley signed and Rom to come out with his decision. He needs to stop messing around and be honest so we can all move on from him.

This summer is a huge one and next season we don't need any distraction other than a concentrated effort at the CL. This continuous innuendo with Rom has to stop once and for all.


1.) 27 Mar 2017 08:33:26
Thing is BJU, it's not just his decision. He made a decision 2 or 3 years ago to sign a contract. As a club we want him to extend it now and sign a new one. He has every right to let the contract run down and take the next 2 years looking elsewhere. Likewise, we can sell him now, in 12 months time or let him walk away for nothing in 2 years time. Soit is not just about Rom's decision. the club have a decision to make as well. We probably get top money for him if we sell him this Summer. But then we have no center forward. We can keep him for another 12 months and still sell him. and may even get as much then if transfer values keep increasing at the rate they have in recent years. I would guess that we will be looking for a replacement and when we have one, then we will sell him. Probably in 14 months time. So that we have him for next season and still get a good fee for him. That means our supporters will have to put up with the circus continuing for 14 months more. After all to sell him this Summer means we get more money (but we have that with Moshiri anyway) . Added to which, he is pretty well impossible to replace and it gives us 14 months to improve and get into Europe which is what he wants anyway. I really can't see going until the Summer after next. unless of course he has a verbal agreement with the club as some people have hinted? I think Ed002 suggested something along these lines?

{Ed002's Note - I suggested it before last summer and I expect he will go this summer Degsy - it is a case of what interest there is in him - and that will become clear over the next three months. Everton are certainly looking for a replacement already.}

2.) 27 Mar 2017 10:48:26
I would guess you are right Ed002. But I also know that if we have not found a replacement, we are not in the situation of HAVING to sell just yet. With the contract as it is, unless there is a verbal agreement that we don't know about, we could squeeze another 12 months out of him and still get a decent fee. assuming he does not throw his toys out of the pram like Berahino did at WBA. I suspect we may wait the further 12 months and see what develops with our own progress. He wants European football. so do we. Like I say, it probably depends on what has been said to him. If you are in the know, then I accept what you say. My hope is that we keep winning, he keeps banging in the goals, we qualify for Europe and then he is happy to sign a new contract.

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that. Clubs generally don't want to hang on the players who don't want to be there - it makes the situation difficult all around. Lukaku wants to be playing at the highest level and will not really be looking to hang around at Everton - where realistically the Champions League on any sort of regular basis is a very long way off. He would have signed the new deal save for the reasons I previously explained. His agent is talking to other sides to see what options may be available - and Everton will know that. Everton are certainly looking at alternative strikers and making sure that, should he leave, they have the information on available options. And you cannot discount the money that Lukaku and perhaps another leaving would raise for summer transfers.}

3.) 27 Mar 2017 10:54:40
Thanks for the update Ed hope he stays but fear the worst on a positive note we are proactively looking now rather than waiting for his final decision.

{Ed002's Note - The club understand the situation SA.}

4.) 27 Mar 2017 11:45:20
Could be just the distraction needed though so we keep sneaking up on those above us 🤔.



25 Mar 2017 22:40:58
I'm still in a bit of shock over Seamus. It's strange, he is one of those players you just expect to play every week. If he gets tackled he just gets up runs at break neck speed and gets that ball back.

It hurts even more as he is one of our own. I don't care what it says on his passport or birth certificate. He is blue right the way through. An inspiration to us all off the pitch and respected above most others on it.

I don't know of a better right back in WORLD football and wish him nothing but a speedy and full recovery.

One day, he'll have a stand named after him. I'll make damned sure of it.


1.) 26 Mar 2017 08:19:23
100% agreed.

2.) 26 Mar 2017 09:17:18
Totally agree BlueJohnUns. Funnily enough the day before the leg break I wrote a post praising Coleman. The lad isn't like most big headed footballers today. He is very grounded and down to earth. Committed to Everton. As I said before loved the way he came out in January last squashing rumours in the media that he was going to Utd.

Pure class, just like his actions on the pitch. Mr consistent and very rarely if ever has a stinker of a game. Very dependable. Hope he comes back the same player because at 28 he was just reaching his peak.

3.) 26 Mar 2017 09:29:20
Skilful, very hard working and coveted by the rest. That makes him an Everton Great in my books. My one wish is that he comes back and wins some silverware with us as Captain, lifting it first.

4.) 26 Mar 2017 11:25:28
Seamus is a gentleman and a legend in my eyes. For years he has been linked to Man Utd and others, no whinging, just head down and carry on doing what he is best at, playing for Everton. I think after his career has finished, he could and hopefully, be brought into a coaching capacity ( if he has the intentions to do so) . I think he will continue to have strong links with the club, but if not, he will be a special man and prayer at our club. Speedy recovery Seamus.

5.) 26 Mar 2017 23:47:29
The best £60k ever spent in don't think any player will ever represent a better find in the whole world of football! Pure class!



14 Mar 2017 18:37:57
So Lukaku has turned down the contract because he wants a clause to allow him to leave between a reported 60-70 mil.

That means he has decided to go in the summer anyway and basically wants a concrete contract to allow him to do it on his terms.

We are now better not agreeing to this but allow him to leave in the summer and under our terms.

I for one will be happy to see him go. Great goal scorer this year and much improved player but for him he has never been a player that really wanted to be with us and was simply looking at a stepping stone. Good on him.

For me I'd rather get players in the want to be with us and show a bit of commitment and respect for the club. He's been banging on for 4 years over this.

Hopefully he breaks all kinds of records between now and the end of the season and we get between 70 -80 mil for him. We'll have the money to go out there and get players to replace him and Europe to offer as well.

As for Rom all the best to him and thanks for the goals. Hope he wins the CL he craves and has a great career.

For us we will move on. Players have been coming and going since 1878 and we're still here and with a situation we have never been in before in terms of spending power.

The king is dead, long live the king.


1.) 14 Mar 2017 19:33:15
Totally agree BJU. Play him every minute to get his golden boot. I want to see him crawling off the pitch every week and earning his wages whilst he's with us.
I wouldn't worry too much about replacing him either. We have one of the best talent spotters in the game in Steve Walsh. Remember he's the one who brought Drogba to these shores. He didn't do too badly did he.
No point in being bitter either, he's paid to do a job and he's doing it very well, and at the end of it we will likely treble our investment. Win win I say.
And the last time we lost a striker this prolific? Well I was besides myself with grief when Lineker went to Barcelona and we followed that up with the title. So my pints half full on this one.

{Ed025's Note - mine too ace mate..

2.) 14 Mar 2017 19:54:01
Well said Toffee. It'll be difficult for the younger supporters as they've never seen this situation before. For people like you, me and ED we've been through this before.

I can't wait for next season with or without Lukaku.

{Ed025's Note - we can still do a bit of damage this season john, its a great time to be a blue mate i really believe that..

3.) 14 Mar 2017 20:00:41
Well said Ed.



12 Mar 2017 21:11:18
A great result yesterday. WBA were the usual boring, sit in the box selves with the tactical genius Pulis coming up with no new ideas.

Him and Koeman couldn't be any different. Koeman saw we were struggling to find gaps in the box and so told Lukaku to pull out wide to draw out the defender. Genius, true genius.

After the first goal it was all over as it usually is against a Pulis side. If you concede first they just put more players behind the ball and so make it difficult to come back from a goal down. Score first and it's usually over as he has no new ideas.

As for the players. Lukaku was great, Jags done well after his spell out and Barry was much improved against a midfielder that lacked pace or the will to go past the halfway line. He struggles badly against teams that attack us but against this lot it's easier pickings.

Barkley is getting better but yesterday he was exceptional. Pace, power and composure mixed with accuracy in his pass and in finding the right man almost everytime. If he isn't picked AND played for England then Southgate needs sacking now. A new contract is the club's most important job right now and a long one to boot.

Overall things look brilliant with Europe now a dead cert and a big announcement this month should put the icing on the cake.





02 Mar 2017 22:29:40
So a win on Saturday will equal our points total for last season with 11 games still to play. We are currently 11 points better off than at the same stage last season and with the win against Sunderland won one more game than the whole of last season. And at this stage last year we were already in 11th place.

Not a bad start for Mr Koeman.


1.) 03 Mar 2017 08:36:42
The whole thing is gaining momentum. I know we will have setbacks. But we are much better placed to deal with them now. COYB.

2.) 03 Mar 2017 10:35:34
It is a real shame we had that bad run of 10 or so games. If we had just won 2 or 3 of them we would be in one hell of a good position right now. If we have a similar season next year but without the blip we could be real contenders for a top 4 spot.

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.

The legacy will be the revival of North Liverpool docklands. Merseyside is increasing population fast and the city is tiny for the amount of visitors to it. We need expansion and this will speed up that process.

Also peel want to invest but at a more leisurely pace. This gives them an excuse to quicken up some of their development for the area and to test the water on whether it is worth 5 bil in investment.

Whether it's Moshiri, the club or LCC it is still going to cost to build a stadium. I wouldn't worry over the finances as We won't understand it anyway.

The club will only invest in something that is going to make money and be a sound investment for the club in the future and he is trying to increase revenues so that we ARE self sufficient.

Trust me Billy. Even if we did he would still talk about moving to another club. His agent was even saying that if he signs it doesn't mean he will be staying.

If and it's a big if he does stay next season great but personally I think he's gone regardless of him signing a new contract.

More importantly it seems Lukaku is not happy with our buying policy. Although, I believe he will find any excuse to get his move away from the club.
