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.



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.

4.) 05 Feb 2017 18:26:34
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.. :)

Right people. Game day again. Can't wait and I'm hoping for an early goal. Burnley is one of those games where they shut up shop whilst walking on the pitch.

An early goal should settle nerves on the pitch and in the stands and might end up being a pleasant day out.

Either way I'm going for a 3-1 win today with Williams being the contributed for their goal. Think he has the most assists for opposing teams this season!

Niasse, Davies and Sig to share the three for us.


{Ed025's Note - lets hope so john..

1.) 01 Oct 2017 10:28:34
I just hope he mixes it up with a bit of pace, if I see 2 holding midfielders and 3 no.10's again I may scream.

{Ed025's Note - i feel you may need a pack of lockets then gibbo..

2.) 01 Oct 2017 10:42:18
Shneids needs to be dropped for a few games at least and drop Williams for the season.

Our season gets going on the right track today. 3-0 for me.

We might be Palace's first win of the season at this rate.



24 Sep 2017 20:20:16
More and more of our fans are sounding like west ham or Newcastle fans. Not interested in what he does to try and win a game or give him credit but instead slate every single thing he does and not even in a constructive manner. It's not just on here but also at the game.

Am I his biggest fan - no. However, I can't justify criticising him when he gets three points. He and the team done their job.

He deserves support and time. He has the best win% since Kendalls 1st stint and is 5th all time discounting managers with less than 10 games at the club.

There's loads I can't stand about his tactics like 3 at the back and lack of width but if he wins games he is vindicated in whatever he does. He's won 2 on the bounce and hardly anyone wants to give him a break and instead continue to have a go.

As for Niasse I'm made up he is proving me wrong but I'm pretty sure we all saw how bad he was when first coming onto the scene. On top of that his arrest probably didn't endear him to the club when he 1st came either.

Everyone deserves a second chance and we're giving that to Niasse so why not do the same with Koeman.

Do what you want but some of you sound like you are getting bitter and will probably have a heart attack by the end of the month. I'll criticise when we don't win and played badly but I'll make sure I'll give support and credit when things go right.


{Ed025's Note - very fair comments there john mate..

1.) 24 Sep 2017 20:35:37
Good post BlueJohn.

2.) 24 Sep 2017 23:19:22
I think it depends how the criticism is put across. RK has my full support as soon as we take to the field, and I understand that he is trying to work out how to play with all the new players.

However he has repeated the same selection and tactical mistakes in several games, which for me has got me a little worried.

That being said, he does deserve credit for the last 2 wins, and irrespective of whether he should have started with the players who came on, he made the changes and we won the game as a result of those changes.

I'm hoping he's learning from his mistakes and that this time next week we will have 2 more wins under our belt and will be feeling like we are making as much progress on field as off it.

3.) 25 Sep 2017 09:45:12
I can see why fans are getting frustrated, but remember we have a new team and not being sure what is the best system and what players to pick, it's like he's thought just throw them all in the team and eventually they will click and the result will come, but watching as a fan it looks like same old bad tactics, which I think it is, you play with your trusted set up and add slowly to the team, we had some of the best teams in the league so far so it's abit unfair to judge yet, as we could of easily lost to these with out the new player and with lukaku still in the team, we got threw against bournemouth and that 2 wins in a row now, that will give confidence and hopefully things will start to move forward, naisse will hopefully give us another dimension and the one we have been missing.

4.) 25 Sep 2017 11:20:14
Spot on again BlueJohnUns.

5.) 25 Sep 2017 17:23:31
Ronnie got it spot on last Wednesday, then for some reason he went back to the excact same formation and team selection that saw us on the end of 4 defeats without a goal, he rectified that second half and brought on the players that did so well in the Wednesday game and again we were much better and got the result we deserve, I think the fans frustration is that when we come to play Burnley, you almost spect Ronnie to do the same again and start with the same players that started against Bournemouth, every fan will back Ronnie, but he simply cannot carry on starting a match with the same formation and players selections, that is what is bothering most Evertonians, not moaning, not slating Ronnie, but singly frustrated that it's the same week in week out until we make tactical subs, get those players on from the start and let the opponents worry about us.

6.) 25 Sep 2017 19:35:25
Baz I'm setting you a challenge. Give me 5 things Ronnie has done right in the past two games.

Nothing else in the post just positives. I might start listening to some of the things you say if you can manage it.

Also, why are you frustrated with the Burnley game that is after our next one and when you don't even know who he is going to pick. You are setting yourself up to be disappointed for no reason at all. You are talking absolute madness and moaning, yes moaning, already about a game that hasn't even been played!



23 Sep 2017 19:29:10
Oumar saves Koeman's Niasse!




18 Sep 2017 19:00:39
1st off may I take this opportunity to apologise to johny1989 for calling him a blurt yesterday on the chat. I was out of order.

On the game I thought for 70 minutes yesterday we played well and it was a massive improvement on anything else we've produced this season.

Finally some aggression, composure and fight was shown by these players this season which for me has been the biggest disappointment. Forget who we should have got and tactics or managers selections. This has been the single reason I have been angry with us. No matter who you have on that pitch if you don't play with this then you won't win games.

The dogs of war had a bunch of players that were second rate and had no quality compared to mid table teams never mind the elite. However, Royle built them into fighters and gave them the instruction to win the first battle on that pitch with no prisoners taken.

After we won this we played football and good football at that. How good? Take a look at the semi-final against Spurs in 95.

That sheer will to put pressure on the team you're playing without pause has been the biggest influence in this poor run. That is the players fault 110%. Not one of them deserves exemption.

Before you say I'm defending Koeman I'm not. In fact he has magnified the problems with players in the wrong positions like DCL at right wing, no width, perstence of playing Williams and Jags yet Holgate deserves a chance in that position and the use of 3 at the back drives me insane. Plus a list as long as my arm I could go on about.

I am right on the fence with him. However, we had the same issue last season up until Xmas. We then turned a corner and were in the mix for a top four. I won't give him till then but I will give him the next month to turn things around.

I understand we have a large number of players in and out and maybe bedding them in against Man city, Chelsea, Spurs and United is not the easiest things to do but at least put players in positions and formations they are comfortable in.

So a month. He and the team deserve that. I'm not wanting all victories. I believe this is a good team and squad. It means nothing though if you are not committed in every game and to each other. If they show this and are angry and aggressive the quality will come through and we'll win far more than lose.


1.) 18 Sep 2017 19:18:25
A month it is then.

4.) 19 Sep 2017 06:40:12
I just want to go the game without looking through my fingers for 90 minutes. After last year I thought we were past all this from the Martinez era. Need to stop walking under ladders, kicking black cats and start dancing in dog turd.

5.) 19 Sep 2017 14:38:07
no need to apologise I was being a fool I don't actually want koeman gone I was just angry with the result as we deserved more.
although if he don't win the next 4 I do want him gone.

6.) 19 Sep 2017 17:16:09
I won't argue with that Johny. I'm very much in the same way of thinking. I hope to God we go on a massive winning streak. Not for him but for our season.



01 Sep 2017 08:58:35
Well that's the silly part of the season done with.

I can't help feeling like we've missed a piece of the puzzle with not signing an experienced top class striker. However, let's be fair we've signed some brilliant players and really improved the squad.

On the outs. We've cleared thd decks to some degree but I'm confused for Ross. Whoever his agent is he should be sacked immediately. He's left the player in limbo and in a world cup year. If he'd have stayed and signed a contract he could have got his head down and improved this year under Koeman and may have made the squad. If he'd have signed for Chelsea he again would have been getting game time and given himself a chance. He's now got to sit on a bench until January twiddling his thumbs.

There's some experience brought in and youth and the squad looks competitive. The one player I'm really excited about though is the one we already had. DCL.

He has taken his chance well and if he can start to add goals this year he will be a quality player. So far he looks a more competitive forward than Sandro.

On Sandro he will need time to settle. We might not see the best of him until after Xmas but he's got bags of assets. A big of a headless chicken sometimes but we'll work on him and get him doing the right things.

All the others look good and comparing to last year the squad is miles better.

With the other teams above us adding quality players also though for me that top striker is what is setting us all apart. So it's best of the rest again but we'll see.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 09:41:52
Ross won't be back in training until December anyway. So it is a bit of nonsense really. He'll be out the door first week of January. I'm sure Chelsea told him he'll get a nice little bonus if he doesn't cost them 12 weeks wages in the treatment room.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 09:51:22
I'm a bit confused about all the not signing a top class striker! For me there are only a few proven top class strikers they are the guys that have scored over 15 goals per season consistently for at least two seasons that in itself narrows it down to Aguero, Defoe, Kane, and Lukaku. Defoe would be the only one we had a chance at signing. Costa is probably the best of the rest but if he wasn't messing Chelsea about he would either been in their squad or would have moved to a champions league team. Personally I think everyone stayed well clear of him. We have 8 new additions to the 1st team squad that need time to gel. let's just wait and see how we do until the Jan window then if we need a striker then. DCL looks a very good player when played as a CF for me he is as good an option as any of the other CF we have been linked with. Like BlueJohnUns I am also looking forward to see how he progresses maybe he will be the CF we need.

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.

While he's there Koeman. I want him to succeed. I want him to win every game and the players to get on board with it. Not for him but for Everton Football Club.

I think that's the problem with us fans. A bad start and we are looking to the next one we can bring in and judge after a few games or like you already have a preconception and once things go wrong jump on it and look for applause because you all told us so.

You are like many fans at the game I suppose and I'm not judging you but you've given up. I said the other day he could win 10 on the spin but you've made your mind up he needs to go.

Moyes was too negative and played for a draw before a win, Martinez got the players passing sideways and didn't berate the players in public, Koeman berates the players in public and has no tactical sense, Kenwright treats the club like it's his toy, Moshiri is a fake and should spend 500 bagillion on Messi and Ronaldo.

I'll jump on board though with your question.

Ancelotti until we lose at Arsenal because didn't change our fortunes around against the big teams, after that Moyes because we know him but after drawing our next 9 games I want him gone then Kenwright because it must be his fault and I'll tell him by putting a plane above the ground, finally we get Davey Unsworth who's one of our own, until that is, he has been found out after losing a couple of games in his fledgling managerial career where he is learning his trade.

If any of this happens I'll make sure I come back and tell you all I said it first.

I'm not attacking you here Skylark I'm attacking all of us. We're all the same. I think we've lost the art of being Evertonian. Maybe we're now spoilt with the injection of money and our expectations are blown out of proportion. I don't know. Everton though doesn't feel like Everton any more. Most if the time on here or at the game everyone sounds angry and unhappy even when we were in full flow last season there was no difference.

So finally I give up and done. Respect you all but I need a break. ED's i love ya and I'll be back in happier times but for now take care of yourselves. Some of you on here I hope you find peace or valium. The rest it's been a pleasure and I'll see you soon maybe.

For me "bartender! Beer please! "

There's many skylark that shouldn't be allowed at the game. In Moyes last season when we lost only once at home the crowd was as bad then as it is now in some games.

It's not the fans fault but we have a part to play. If anyone was at the Wimbledon and Coventry games when were needed the most it was the fans that inspired the teams on those days. i'd take the fans on these days over the ones there now.

He's a weird one. He has good moments and then some that make him look non league.

However, he is one that is giving 100% at the moment when on the pitch and I'd stick with him. I think his future is away from the club though.

The guy is a crook and up his own arse. Simple as that.

He is like Pulis in that he only gets the best out of teams when they are in trouble. When he's been at a club for a while he struggles to take them forward. As for the football he plays it's not my cup of tea. They both play utter dire uninspiring long ball thuggery football. Not for me.
