What a difference the right people make to a football club.

Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman where such a disaster but I wonder who was more culpable.

Was it Koeman with his negative tactics in his second season. In his first he played attacking and fluid fast football that saw us have one of our best periods in the second half of that season that we've had in the EPL era.

Or was it Walsh with his purchase of three no10's and not one player to come in and replace the departing Lukaku.

Looking at the players Walsh brought in and the massive increase in quality of what Brands has brought in, with clear input from Silva (Richarlson), and the difference to what the right people can make to a football club is clear to see.

I honestly trust these two with the future of this club and do so more than anyone brought in over the last few years.

Long may this continue.

So sky have their sources tell them we have a deal with Barcelona for Mina. Their sources also say he's involved with a bid for Pogba.

I'd maybe want to have a word with them sources and tell them to make their mind up!

BlueJohnUns

1.) 07 Aug 2018 09:17:12
He could be involved in both lol.

Clubs don’t usually put all of their eggs in one basket and it doesn’t look like Mina wants to join us so they should be looking to offload him elsewhere.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 10:03:26
Highly unlikely a deal involving 2 players plus cash sounds very complicated with so many players to agree terms etc.


3.) 07 Aug 2018 10:06:13
I also feel like their “sources” are just people in an office trawling through other people’s social media accounts.

I hope so after yesterday! Jags been a good servant to the club but sadly his legs have gone. No leader on the pitch yesterday. Gueye should be the captain in my opinion. Attacking midfielder needed now.


2.) 05 Aug 2018 21:27:20
Where u hear that from bluejohn I don't see it anywhere plus no mention of medical been taken.


3.) 05 Aug 2018 21:30:34
Coleman is surely the new captain in waiting?


4.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:03
I know it was only a friendly but he was poor and didn't seem to be shouting at his fellow players. Only players with credit yesterday was Gueye, Tosan, Walcott. Rest of the team CBA!


5.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:19
And fully agree with the Coleman shout.

A fee was agreed weeks ago. There is no ‘news’ here, just SKY scratching around for headlines.


8.) 05 Aug 2018 22:59:47
Personal terms were agreed ages ago. There was an “understanding” a few days ago that they were to agree a few. However today, the complete fee (add on, etc) has been agreed today!

How reliable this is I do not know. It is only what I know from usually a very reliable source.

Where we have the right personel we look good and can see it's only going to get better. That's upfront.

At the back Jags and Baines are far too slow and I think they both new it today. Jags looked totally dejected after one of the goals and had a look of resignation.

Now the good news and the massive difference to last year. Brand and Silva know it and are doing something about it.

Digne has pretty much done and they've been trying most of the summer for mina.

There's no buying 3 No.10 or someone because he has one good game against us.

I would though if I was them look for another CB making it two and a good no8 who adds real drive in that centre of midfield.

Pickford, Digne and Mina will add pace and aggression this defence needs.

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.

BlueJohnUns

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.

Let me start off by saying that for me we have done pretty much what I thought we would do. I expected a push for a top ten finish and anywhere between 10th and 7th. I also wanted better football but more importantly the promise of improvement and real development.

We took a long time to get used to the zonal marking system but for me personally and as I said earlier on it's what most top teams use and works well if you are aggressive when attacking the ball in your zone. We eventually twigged and ended up with the third highest amount of clean sheets in the league.

Where we lost ground and confidence was the derby at Anfield. It took all the wind out of us and we were in trouble mentally. Then we got the draw in the Goodison derby and it transformed us. Not just the manager a d players but the crowd more significantly too. That crowd of ours was unbelievable and its carried on since then just like our performances on the pitch. I honestly believe if we got the draw at Anfield we might have kicked at that point.

Playing wise Ricky's move to the right and Bernard playing week in week out transformed our attack. Them and Sig plus Gana being more adventurous and Gomes meant we always look capable in scoring goals. However, DCL is still a year away from being an EPL front man and should be on loan for next season. We need an established goal scorer. He offers loads more than Tosun but his finishing is naive and lacks composure mainly due to age.

Do we need Gomes and Zooma? I'm not so sure. I would love both but mainly Zooma. However this is more to do with Mina being injured. I really like the look of Mina and think he has more to offer but Zooma is a very traditional CD and I like that. Keane is our best CD though and he has been outstanding for most of this year. Digne is going nowhere and was my played of the year. Coleman, recaptured his best form over the past 10 games and is still good enough to keep that place next year. However, we need someone to push then takeover him this summer.

Pickford is a big problem for me. He needs to learn to be composed and commanding instead of rash and erratic. He was to blame for a lot of poor defensive displays due to confidence being shaken with his display in the back 5. He learns or we move on.

Overall a good season and with a few additions 4 at most we should kick on next year. For Silva I think he has shown what he can do with a team lacking direction and confidence. Now we have both it'll be interesting what can do next year and if he can now get development and consistency.

I can't wait for it all to begin again.

1.) 13 May 2019 13:39:39
U can't praise the defense for the amount of clean sheets we got then slag Pickford it makes no sense, he's made mistakes this year yes but he's kept us in many a game also and finished with only 2 or 3 keepers having more clean sheets than him.


2.) 13 May 2019 13:57:03
I agree with most of that BJU, just the Pickford thing was a bit harsh for me. Johny’s Point is correct. There were definitely a few costly errors from Pickford but he deserves credit for the clean sheets in equal measure. What is funny though is that when we were poor his distribution was good, then when we improved his distribution dipped. Not sure why.

If DCL was sent out, it would have to be a team that creates lots of chances so that he can get the opportunity to improve his finishing. I remember when Barkley went on loan to Leeds when Warnock was coach. Talk about the wrong fit!

Digne my player of the season too. And I also think that Mina can be excellent if he stays injury free. A good summer pre season will help him no end.

Like you BJU I’m very upbeat with the current situation and am looking forward to a good summer of gossip and eventual moves.

COYB.


3.) 13 May 2019 16:31:22
Keane zouma partnership has been good they built good understanding over last few months, that’s often the problem with teams defences look at all the great partnerships down the years might not of been the best Cd’s in the world but when you have that understanding you can have a strong defence.


4.) 13 May 2019 20:00:52
We may have equalled last seasons league placing but for me it was always going to be a transition year. And what a transition, we are unrecognizable from the everton of 12 months ago.
Our aim should be to get closer to the top6/ 4 and points wise we are closer. Let's hope for a top 6 challenge next year.


5.) 14 May 2019 03:34:57
I think Pickford comments are harsh also, far more good than bad and let’s not forget he’s not long turned 25 which is young for GK. We all made mistakes at his age the thing is learning from them which I’m sure he has. His best years are ahead of him and I personally don’t think we will get a better GK than him.


6.) 14 May 2019 22:20:01
Like others I agree with most of what you said BJU aside from the Pickford point and partially about Mina.

I like the look of Mina - big, strong and really attacks the ball - but my worry is the lack of pace between him and Keane. Zouma offers that pace and his partnership with Keane looked bang on the last dozen games. My first choice would be to keep Zouma to partner Keane because Mina and Keane together carries a massive risk of getting exposed by pace at the back.

Gomes looked very assured for most of the season but Schneiderlin started to look the quality player we signed when he came in towards the end. With that in mind it wouldn’t be the end of the world for me if we didn’t manage to keep him, providing we keep Gueye.

Zouma, a decent youngish right back (I don’t think Kenny’s the answer) and a striker plus four or five of the high earning non-starting plays off the wage bill would be a good summer for me.

I think we should put an appeal in to get it over turned :-)


2.) 25 Nov 2018 16:56:25
They have a tough game coming up against PSG in midweek, hopefully later in the Derby we have Lookman, Calvert Lewin, Touson and the likes to come off the bench.

Although I agree Lookman deserves a start, this could be the game for Walcott to make his mark early doors, then Lookmans pace and trickery to make the difference in the second half.


3.) 25 Nov 2018 19:43:39
Agree bignev mate Theo he will be up for this game, and to start can't beat his experience for first half and Lookmans pace for the second, very tricky for them.


4.) 25 Nov 2018 22:34:17
Tbf Theo should be up for it every game, not just against the big teams and his performances this season show that even if HE is up for it, his performances aren't. He needs to turn it round and quick sharp.


5.) 25 Nov 2018 22:50:21
He hasn't been playing well but he is giving everything he can on the pitch. It might be best to take him out of the firing line for a bit and take the pressure off him.

3.) 06 Nov 2018 08:34:31
Koeman, Rhino, Alardyce. We finished 8th. Playing much better football this Season and will be a good achievement to finish top 7. Still not beaten any of the big boys, although we certainly have a stronger Team and Squad. Transition (seems every season since Mr Moshri's arrival - but seems finally to have got it right) means, in my opinion and even with this Squad, that we will probably start to see how good we are towards the end of next season. Anything before that I will take as a bonus.

Anyone else falling in love with Everton all over again?!

We're 10th and I'm not complaining one bit about it. Just to see us play football again and go for the win is such a contrast to last year. Plus the system we are playing is the Everton I know.

Tricky wingers using the full width and over lapping wing backs. Also the ability to mix it up with a fluid front four that must be a nightmare to pick up.

At the back we are getting better each game but we need to be careful when over committing, especially at corners. Three games on the bounce we've been caught out on the break from them and been lucky to have not conceded more than the one today.

However, good today and can't wait until. Palace now.

COYB ISWT NSNO.

Agree fully BJU. Early days but the signs are good and it's nice to watch.


2.) 07 Oct 2018 11:09:12
Funny ain't it BJU. Earlier in the season we were conceding at set pieces all the time. and last season. Yet now we seem to have sorted that out and we have started conceding on the break. Schneids (previously Barry) were good at stopping that with constant fouls. But like you I prefer the open football. What we need now is a Rat. A defender with incredible acceleration and pace to get the tackle in just as the forward is pulling the trigger. Perhaps Holgate will improve and be that guy with Mina being the set piece stopper? Certainly Keane was nearly caught out by Vardy a couple of times but Vardy is one of the quickest. Wow I am enjoying Everton again! Options. that is what this manager now has!


 

 

17 Sep 2018 12:32:34
Stating the obvious. It was a bad game yesterday.

The 5 men in defence were all to blame and maybe too many changes at the back this season is not helping them gel.

Zouma should have been inline with the other three defenders to put Anoutavic offside. Instead he played him on with headless chicken Holgate over committing.

Kenny constantly was out of position and had to make numerous last ditch tackles. He's not managing his position well. Digne on the other side had no help and was constantly caught between marking two players.

Pickford has not started this season well. His kicking which is usually excellent cost us the second goal and is putting us back under pressure as he is not reaching his target.

In the middle for me yesterday Silva should have left Snids on and took Gana off. Gana goes roaming and it was him not covering the middle the cost us the third goal. Snids has been much better this season but what his does do is hold the middle and keeps protecting the back four.

Upfront was really good in creating chances but terrible for taking them. Tosun needs taking off and I'd put Theo upfront. You can put Ricky there but he is much better running from deep. If we do change it we can't put hopeful balls up and need to pass our way forward as they are not target men.

I said we would get beat and badly and playing badly. It happened yesterday but I believe we will learn and get better.

It's not Ricky that has been the missing link though it's the individual mistakes that are costing us. The players are at fault nothing more than that. Maybe Mina is the solution as CB. Definitely Keane is being missed. However, hopefully, soon we will have a full team to choose from and we can finally start to see a true idea of what this team can do.

BlueJohnUns

1.) 17 Sep 2018 16:47:23
I think Tosun scores 9/ 10 with that header just not happening for him at moment but at least he is getting chances. The fact we are creating chances is a good sign as we weren’t creating anything last season.


2.) 17 Sep 2018 17:06:27
Had he put his neck muscles into it he would have scored.


3.) 17 Sep 2018 22:41:21
He probably wasn't expecting such a great cross from digne and caught him out. It was a flimsy header. He can finish tho and needs a goal or two to get his confidence back. God even Harry kane went goalless in first month until this season. We still have to see what Mina and Gomes can bring to the party.


4.) 18 Sep 2018 18:19:47
I like Tosun don't get me wrong but he is struggling and sometimes coming off the bench has less pressure. Give him a bit of a rest and change it up a little.

we would also do better in bringing Hornby on instead of Niasse. Let's give him a chance to see what he can do. Off the bench there is no expectation.


5.) 18 Sep 2018 23:36:11
Hornsby was poor for the u23s Monday night, nows not the time to bring the lad in, send him out on loan, toughen the kid up.

Personally I would go all out to try and get Bas Dost in, a giant of a forward who scored 45 concecative goals with just one touch, looks a beast at 6ft 5 and plenty of goals in the guy.

Digmi, Kenny floating the balls in and link up play with Walcott, Richarlison and Siggerson. Cannot think of a better option to bring in.


6.) 19 Sep 2018 08:08:08
It might not be nev and that's why, like with DCL you bring him into the squad and off the bench now and again.

However, Niasse is a complete waste of space. You may as well just take the player off and play with ten men.

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 totally agree with you smit. I hope we don't try and sign loads of players. I still want to see us clear a load out and I'd be happy with the ones you suggested.

I believe that not signing anyone in January helped the team bond. 4 at the most for me.

Pickford is exactly the same height as Neville Southall!

We should absolutely want to be in the Champions league EVERY season, in fact we should want to win EVERY trophy we are involved in. However, if we don't make it, accept it and recognise that the players have given their all.

It's this part we get wrong. Nothing is wrong with having high, even unrealistic expectations just don't be blind when we are trying all we can to achieve it.

The negativity last year was nothing to do with where we finished it was because we played bloody awful football.

This year we are playing like the Everton I know and as long as we give our all, like we are doing, then wherever we finish will be enough.

But I still want to win the league😁.
