A number of reports now saying Lukaku won't be signing a new contract. Disappointing and something of the Everton of old about it if true.


{Ed025's Note - reports can be misleading CT, we are still in talks but raiola is playing hardball and will be asking for plenty of dosh plus a release clause no doubt, great if he signs and a massive windfall if he wants out and im afraid thats modern day football mate..

1.) 14 Mar 2017 17:43:19
Yeah I hear you Ed. It's a bitter pill to swallow. If he does go though I for one won't begrudge him that. One of the best players I have seen in a blue shirt in my life time.

He also seems to want to leave because his ambitions currently don't match what the club are able to offer (i. e. Champions league) .

He is going to be incredibly difficult to replace though.

{Ed025's Note - he certainly will CT but if he goes then we move on mate..

2.) 14 Mar 2017 17:50:47
I'm sure we will Ed. Must say I'm gutted.

3.) 14 Mar 2017 17:56:49
No 1 is bigger than the club, if he don't won't to be here, then best get rid and take as much as we can get.!

{Ed025's Note - i will have that shaun mate..

4.) 14 Mar 2017 18:29:52
Be gutted if he leaves. However, our recent transfers have been really good so i'm sure rk and walsh have already planned for life without him.

5.) 14 Mar 2017 19:12:20
Niasse could do a job given the way he's played for Hull. Not a 25 goal replacement but he's got 10 more games to prove us all that he has the potential for 15 or so a season.

{Ed025's Note - i wish that was true windsor, unfortunately he is a lemon mate and we will all have to realize that..

6.) 14 Mar 2017 19:20:19
I know Ed, clutching at straws! If SW had signed him there'd probably be a player hiding in there somewhere, but given that Martinez bought him I very much doubt it.

If we keep progressing this season and can make a dent in the top six, I think we'll be an attractive option for some decent strikers. Even if it's just a loan initially for someone like Martial I'd be happy, because if they get goals and we start bothering the top 4 it will be another step in the right direction.

{Ed025's Note - the direction the club is going we will entice decent players windsor, we can now afford to go the extra mile on the wages front and that will make all the difference mate..

7.) 15 Mar 2017 00:17:37
He has been saying he wants out for last while. The grass is not always greener just ask peanuts. A very good player but not one of the all time greats imo ctoffee. Get 70-80 m and move on .

8.) 15 Mar 2017 00:46:54
Get ienhacho in from city as a class young replacement he isn't getting any game time there.

9.) 15 Mar 2017 01:50:05
I think we should all keep an open mind on this one, he still has two years to run on his contract so a lot can happen in this time.
I do believe that if he stays we can get into the champions league next year then he will want to stay longer.
More concerned about Barclay who has only one year to go in his contract and that is not very long to sort a new one out or we could lose him for nothing.



15 Dec 2016 18:25:25
Can any of the eds shed some light on if there is any truth to the Barkley rumour or if it's just paper talk?


{Ed025's Note - they have not made any offer TC but have declared an interest i believe mate..

1.) 15 Dec 2016 18:39:52
Hi Ed still waiting for a reply mate I had a vision you were doing cartwheels down Woolton Village after our win on tues.

{Ed025's Note - i will post a picture of it on the site if we beat liverpool AB.. :)

2.) 15 Dec 2016 19:13:41
You said if we get one point Ed.

{Ed025's Note - fair enough AB i will do them over the holiday and post it on here, after all a promise is a promise mate.. :)

3.) 15 Dec 2016 22:06:29
So as we got all three points does Ed escape? 🤔.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see him letting me off that easy ST.. :)

4.) 15 Dec 2016 23:17:31
I was thinking it might be letting any potential onlookers off from being scarred for life!
There are some things people can just never erase from their memory! ☺️.

5.) 16 Dec 2016 14:34:44
Hi ST another thing is Ed said he was going to shoot the bar in my local golf club hahaha it's going to be a good Christmas this thim.

{Ed025's Note - bull bay is in march AB so i will have plenty of time to save up mate,, :)

6.) 16 Dec 2016 17:11:56
We've got another 2 easy games to go yet Ed.

{Ed025's Note - yeah right.. :)

7.) 16 Dec 2016 17:24:27
You said that about arsenal Ed and look what we done to them.

{Ed025's Note - i would love you to be right mate..

8.) 16 Dec 2016 18:15:40
Hi Ed what do you think of Callum Wilson do you think he good enough?

{Ed025's Note - not seen a great deal of him to be honest AB but what i have seen i like mate, whether he will be good enough is subjective..



14 Jul 2016 09:52:16
Morning Ed's. Wanted to ask if there is any truth in the rumours of us being interested in/ making an approach for Koulibaly?

See he is linked with a number of clubs at the moment.


{Ed002's Note - Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly has continued to attract the attention of a number of clubs and there have been discussions with Chelsea, who have been given the asking price, then they made an offer and now they have been given a new asking price. Interest of Bayern Munich has gone, interest of Manchester United may have gone. Interest of Arsenal is rather tentative but will likely come to nothing. The player has been talking to Napoli about a new contract but his demands are higher than Napoli want to commit to. Right now I am told Everton has not spoken with Napoli.}

1.) 14 Jul 2016 11:18:05
A meeting is due to take place today with Napoli, if all goes well John Stones will then be on his way out, only what is been rumoured on Merseyside.

2.) 14 Jul 2016 11:44:52
really can't see koulibaly coming to us, would b good, but i think there will b teams playing european football who he may prefer to go to.

3.) 14 Jul 2016 13:03:53
Thanks Ed. Appreciate the feedback.

{Ed002's Note - You are welsome.}



05 Apr 2016 20:51:08
This isn't meant as a doom and gloom post more just for interest sake but these are the players I can see going in the summer (excluding those who will be out of contract) .

Interested who you blues would realistically have replace them:

Howard (definitely going)
Lukaku (pretty sure he is leaving)
Mirallas (gets minimal game time so must be going)
Stones (likely to leave)


1.) 05 Apr 2016 21:01:27
i agree with top three mate but just have a feeling Stones will be staying, can't see Mr Moshirir getting rid of two gems at once mate, he will need to make a statement, would like him to stop lukaku too as he has 3 years left, that would be a bold move.

2.) 05 Apr 2016 21:23:47
Hope you're right Murf. Think Stones is more likely to stay than Lukaku.

Who would you want to see replace any/ all of those?

3.) 05 Apr 2016 22:37:00
begovic, bony, yarmolenko.

4.) 06 Apr 2016 00:33:56
Leno,yarmolenko, lacazette and Fabien schaar

5.) 06 Apr 2016 08:49:19
Lads I think Rom gone and we will replace him with either one of these strikers embolo, silimani, lacazette, bony or keita balde diao would like yarmelenko but think he will go to arsenal so I would go for dennis Praet, rafa silva or nadir fekir keppers would be begovic or Heaton premier league experience essential and Fabian schar as defender lads what u think about playing one of r under 21 players for r next match against WWatford I was thinking of Kieran Dowell the lad is class with a great left foot.

6.) 06 Apr 2016 21:39:51
I reckon bony would be a good punt dentielad similar type of player to ROM and scored goals for fun at Swansea sonhas proven record in the prem. Yarmalenko would be a perfect fit but if the rumours are to be believed the red shite fancy him as well.



27 Feb 2016 06:02:05
The Daily Fail now says we're being taken over by some middle eastern investor with the deal to be concluded in the next few days. There seems to be no real conclusive lead on this takeover. Wake me up if/ when it's over.

Goodbye to Lukaku's golden boot. Kane now 2 goals ahead of him with Spurs to play Hull on the last day of the season.




05 May 2017 09:28:32
I'd like the get people's views on the goal keeper issue. It seems like a new number 1 is/ should be high on our list of summer targets.

One name which seems to consistently be linked to us is Pickford. While I'll be the first to admit that I haven't seen a lot of him, I'd rather watch paint dry than watch Sunderland, from what I have seen of him I haven't been that impressed.

Can anyone explain the massive interest in him from a number of clubs including Everton?


1.) 05 May 2017 11:00:25
Not for me personally. Havent seen much special from him really, although was probably a rare highlight to an atrocious season for Sunderland. Young and British. he's going to get highlighted.

2.) 05 May 2017 11:45:23
Haven't we learnt anything from the past. We always seem to go for the young keeper of the moment and pay over the odds (Richard Wright, Steve Simonsen etc) - the best keepers are one's who are solid and consistent season in, season out - you just have to buy them at the right time when their contracts are running down. I'd love to be proved wrong but I think there are much better and cheaper options than Pickford. Having said that people who know far more than me about goalkeeping seem to rate him so he can't be that bad. He had a very flappy game at Goodison which is maybe why we are all a little concerned.



26 Feb 2017 18:38:24
So now that Utd have won the EFL, can someone more informed than me explain what happens if we finish 6th and Utd finish 7th (assuming another team in the top 5 wins the FA cup) ?


{Ed002's Note - Everton would qualify for teh Europa League - taking the FA Cup place.}

1.) 26 Feb 2017 19:06:40
Thanks Ed. So if Utd also won the FA cup and Everton finished above them in 6th would we then lose out on Europe?

{Ed002's Note - No, MU can only play one team in Europe.}

2.) 26 Feb 2017 19:18:07
Ha ha, thanks Ed. So we won't be seeing Utd v Utd in the Europa league next season.

3.) 26 Feb 2017 19:24:34
Hi Ed
To confirm if we finish 7th and one of top 4 wins the FA then we will qualify for the Europa?

{Ed002's Note - Not if MU were to finish 8th - why are you all struggling with this so much. It really is not that complicated.}

4.) 26 Feb 2017 21:24:48
My bag. Should have said if the top 6 remain as it is. Not necessarily in the same positions.

5.) 26 Feb 2017 22:39:38
Tbh. Can't see its dropping out of the too 6. If they do, it'll probably be us replacing them so we be in Europe anyway. Hopefully.



16 Feb 2017 12:12:14
Does anyone know if there is real interest in RK from Barca?

I recall that someone asked this question in the past and Ed02 mentioned that there was a shortlist of preferred managers but RK wasn't on that list (either that or I dreamt up this whole situation) .


{Ed002's Note - try the Barcelona page.}

1.) 16 Feb 2017 15:59:15
C Toffee Ed actually said RK was on the list but not at the top.

2.) 17 Feb 2017 09:10:13
Thanks Ed will check out the page.

Thanks Bill, clearly my memory is going.



12 Feb 2017 05:34:14
Always nice to wake up on a Sunday morning to see one of the rags trying to sell one of our top players to the top 6 clubs.


1.) 12 Feb 2017 09:49:53
It just won't go away even when he wants to sign a new contract but what's up with Barkley Eds papers say he's holding back on his?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I really don't know.}

How could that be Ed? Surely everything that happens in football impacts on Everton :p.

Yeah I get your point Ed. It's clearly a divisive issue with a lot of differing opinions.

At the end of the day I think he will leave this summer and we'll adapt as a team to the loss of any player regardless of who they are or how good they are.


{Ed025's Note - yeah thats what im hoping as well CT..

NBTB, your point seems to be Lukaku isn't world class. From the comments I've read no one has been saying he is.

Also age should be taken into account. Most strikers are at their peak between 25 - 30. Suarez is only 30 now, Neymar is 25. Lukaku is only 23 and may yet become a world class player but he is clearly not that yet (despite what he may think) . So the expectation that he should be a one man team doesn't really seem fair to me but hey you are entitled to your opinion.


{Ed025's Note - it is as you say all about how you see it CT, i love the guy and am a massive fan but if he wants out then my interest in him ends im afraid mate..

I'm in no way saying Lukaku is world class or the finished product. My point is more just that most people seem very keen to write him off and throw him away.

As of last month Lukaku had more goals against top 6 teams compared to other strikers in top 6 teams. So he's also getting an unfair deal there. I agree he should do more in these games but it also shouldn't only be him.

Someone made a good point on this forum that when Lukaku plays well we generally win and when he doesn't we don't. That to me is more a poorer reflection on the rest of the team than it is on Lukaku. In top 6 clubs their squads are stronger and better quality than what we generally have in ours so asking someone who is a good player but not a world beater to always be on the top of his game seems a bit harsh.

Again, I'm not saying he is perfect or doesn't have some glaring issues that need working on (e. g. Personality, first touch etc. ) but I sometimes think too much is expeced of him.

Imho he gets a bad rap from a lot of supporters. Sorry to disagree with some of you but I don't get the "yeah he's young and scores loads of goals but he needs to do more and should be the finished article" argument. His primary role as a striker is to score goals everything else is surely secondary and in those secondary aspects he has improved for the most part.

I would rather have a striker who scores a bucketload of goals than one who maybes gets ten a season but covers every blade of grass on the pitch 9 out of 10 games. If you look at our current team we have a lot of different goal scorers this season but no one other than Lukaku has more than 4 goals. That's a lot of goals we would need to find somewhere.

Also, on turning it on against bigger teams he is one player in a team surrounded by 10 other players. if you look at our squad as a whole, how many of those guys show up against top 6 teams. Almost none. You surely can't expect the guy to single handedly win us every game against clubs with players of a caliber higher than that of the majority of players in our team. That's just unrealistic.

All of this doesn't mean I don't get frustrated watching him sometimes and this isn't any sort of comment on his personality or whether he thinks he is bigger than the club or not because that's a whole other discussion. Just more from a my perspective when he goes we'll miss his threat.

Rant over.

Regardless of his overall loyalty he is stil currently an EFC player. If you use the model that you only support those players who are loyal in the premier league era to one particular club then I'm afraid our club will be going backwards. There are mercenaries in the current game yes but how long has Lukaku been with us? 3 or 4 seasons? That hardly screams a lack of loyalty to me.

The guy wants to play at a level our club currently cannot offer him. I for one won't begrudge him my support for having an ambition that we are not able to provide right now.

Wow, really don't get why fans say this kind of stuff for the clubs leading goal scorer in the premier league era. People seem to forget the Spurs have more creativity and goal scorning threats than what we do. Also Kane has scored 5 penalties this season and Lukaku hasn't taken a penalty.

Crazy how a lot of people put the blame for most of the negative parts of our season on either Lukaku or Barkley. It's puzzling why they don't want to stay.

He seems to drift in and out of games from the bits and pieces I've watched of him Gibbo.
