Talk of Koeman about to resign.


1.) 03 Oct 2017 23:52:12
Of course and then Luvvy Bill will pursued him to stay and nothing will change. I don't believe anything will happen for now.

2.) 04 Oct 2017 06:33:19
Can't c him resigning not with how much he would lose in compensation.

3.) 04 Oct 2017 12:12:47
I'm with James2134 on this. He may resign for all I know but I can't see it happening.

Koeman is stubborn. He doesn't give in easily. Its within his own interest to make things work at Everton.

If he leaves now what will it do for him? Will he get many offers in management?

I'd very much doubt it. His reputation is being battered at the moment. It will make it worse if he walks away.

Yes he probably is unhappy with the way things are going and also probably sulking. Still I think he is clever enough to know the best way or damn near the only way out for him is to turn things around at Everton. If he does that he will manage anywhere. If he doesn't or leaves now his reputation of a manager will be severely dented and he will find it very difficult to recover from it.

Rumours on the net Rooney close to agreeing to return to Everton in Summer. £150k a week possibly a free transfer.


1.) 21 Mar 2017 21:34:22
All I can say is this, if we are prepared to offer 150k per week to a 31 year old striker who's best days are clearly in the rear view mirror, then surely a prime Lukaku ar 23 and scoring 20+ goals must be worth 200k a week, Rooney is finished, we need to look to the future, Barkley and Rom should be the big earners, not a twilight wayne Rooney.

2.) 22 Mar 2017 00:17:08
I think there are pros and cons to him coming back tbh.

His name alone, will elevate us as a club. It will make bigger names more inclined to buy into what we are trying to achieve and what direction we are going.

Lukaku has already stated in the past he would love to play with Rooney.

He has also stated of our lack of ambition in the transfer window. Maybe this will go some way to proving him wrong.

If Rooney can discover even half the form he was in a few years back. I would take him all day. If he gets his hunger/ desire back and wants to repay us as fans, he will be responsible (goals/ assists) for at least 20 goals a season minimum.

If the rumours are true that we can get him on a free, i think it is definitely worth the gamble. Clear McGeady, Kone, Jags etc off the wage bill and the 150k won't be as hard to stomach.

3.) 22 Mar 2017 06:17:37
There's not many other times you'll get a record England and Manchester United goalscorer on a free transfer (if that is to be believed) so I say enjoy it, he's not in his prime but his skill is undeniable and he's still 100% a first teamer for us. Increased squad depth with Europe potentially on the horizon can't be a bad thing.

4.) 22 Mar 2017 07:08:11
You can pay Barkley and Lukaku what they want but if they don't want to sign, then they won't sign, Get the money for both of them and go get a first class striker along with Rooney, remember once a blue always a blue.

5.) 22 Mar 2017 09:56:18
Forget about Rooney history etc, but where would he figure in our current set up? Genuine question not after any bites or whatever. Playing one up top, would he play instead if Rom (I don't see it) Would he play just behind instead of Ross. Not for me. That us if course we manage to keep both. Therefore would he be a sub for supposedly 150k a week? I understand his professionalism, experience and other things as well as showing our 'ambition' may help, even his ability would help somewhere but as to signing him as a player, even on a free, I struggle to see where he would feature.

{Ed025's Note - im with you kingo, of course if he were to pull on that blue shirt again he would have my undying support but i feel it is a time to look forward not back mate..

6.) 22 Mar 2017 09:53:54
The flip side to that is Rooney might want to play for us.

7.) 22 Mar 2017 10:08:59
I honestly thought Rooney was finished, he said he would only ever play for everton fc or man utd. Itching if we come knocking in the summer, he would be here in a flash. he seemed stale at man united for the past couple of seasons.

New lease of life at a club he adores, may get him firing again for maybe two seasons. Id also follow up on other targets. for some reason I'd like us to have a punt on the Cypriot striker.

8.) 22 Mar 2017 12:51:07
For me we need TWO quality strikers at least! Especially if we are in the Europa League as well. Lukaku AND Rooney. Rotate. It gives you the option to rest each of them when they need to. Or play them together when it sits. No brainer for me. And IF Lukaku goes then get another TOP striker to replace him AS WELL. A good couple of yrs from Rooney will give Calvert Lewin or whoever we sign time to develop.

9.) 22 Mar 2017 17:51:41
Formbyjules. If you play them together, who do you drop then? Just intrigued to see other blues point of view.

10.) 22 Mar 2017 19:33:38
He will get goals and regardless of whether lukaku stays or goes we need more goals from our forwards.

11.) 23 Mar 2017 12:17:52
Kingo78 - if RK wants them all then that is his decision - he is a far better manager than I. But I would suggest Everton need the very best players they can get and that includes the squad not just the first XI. We are doing that by getting rid of the deadwood and improving the quality of the squad. RK will then find a system to fit them and decided as and when to rest and rotate them.

12.) 23 Mar 2017 13:23:27
Rooney's return would increase our chances of signing top class players. He is held in high regard amongst the worlds elite young players. He for me is a great business decision if we can land him. We are more attractive, Plus the derby's will be so much better having lads like Barks Davies Rooney they no how much we want to beat the reds.

Lookman signed picture in Everton shirt on bbc website. Good potential who may surprise teams with speed second half of season.

Idrissa gueye fee agreed of 7.2m according to tv?


1.) 27 Jul 2016 07:54:56
Steve Walsh effect coming into play Blues.

2.) 27 Jul 2016 12:00:09
My guess is that Walsh lined him up for a Kante replacement at leciester before he came to us.

3.) 27 Jul 2016 12:01:43
Marseille are also keen to sign gueye and have just agreed a fee of 10.9 mil for sale of georges-kevin nkoudou so we could have some competition for him from Marseille.

4.) 27 Jul 2016 13:34:28
Not in the salary stakes though.

5.) 27 Jul 2016 16:15:37
Read in the mail that he's knocked back marseille as wants to stat in the prem.



24 Jun 2016 09:16:48
Will brexit effect summer transfer policy. Meaning go for more british players rather than all the dutch players?


{Ed002's Note - No, not at all.}

1.) 24 Jun 2016 10:27:06
Good news glad to hear.

2.) 24 Jun 2016 11:10:02
I admire Ed002's restraint I really do.

3.) 24 Jun 2016 12:22:46
We are still in Europe for a minimum of two years. Even the Echo agree's with that.

4.) 24 Jun 2016 14:11:44
True however with the weakened pound British players would be cheaper due to the fx rate.

5.) 24 Jun 2016 19:34:36
It won't affect the players here now but it will affect players coming here when we are out of the eu.

{Ed002's Note - It really won't be any big deal and will likely mean no more than additional paperwork. The are a mass of players in England that come from Africa, South America etc. - no big deal if the meet whatever the criteria are.}

6.) 24 Jun 2016 21:35:42
It will take years to fully be away from the EU so many negotiations need to happen were stepping into the unknown really even older people who remember before we joined it's was a different world back then, but football won't really change much chances are the EU will fall apart within the next decade uk leaving it is massive there are not many countries with strong economies anymore Germany and us were big players within it EU will definetly get weaker but does not mean we will be any stronger.

7.) 24 Jun 2016 23:16:28
Listened to a report on sky how a club owner reported a players value has increased by £3m in the last 24 hours due to the falling pound after brexit!
Most likely west hams Sullivan from that as he does love a good chat to sky and to air his business!

Just in the interest of Balance is there anyone who want him to stay - thumbs up for stay or down to go now. I can guess the outcome. I am thumbs down.


1.) 21 Oct 2017 10:15:08
I'm surprised at the closeness of the vote. Very interesting.

{Ed025's Note - a lot of them are probably liverpool supporters who are desperate for him to stay coyb.. :)



17 Sep 2017 19:45:26
Same fixtures last season 6pts -4 goal difference with settled team and no euro distractions keep the faith better signs today occasionally. It will come good.




31 Aug 2017 20:19:54
Classic signed 8.15pm is that Jim Whites news.




31 Aug 2017 18:04:34
Squeaky bum time. Really need a mobile target man with a eye for a goal. Keeping the faith (just)


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:27:46
Get down the Lisbon, loads of mobile target men with an eye for goal there that will appreciate your squeaky bum time.

Your reply made me laugh BB, sorry BS but you led with your chin with that one.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 20:15:22
RIB your reply just leaves me confused

And how does the word quality make you laugh? Deadline day make you a bit giddy I see.

With Mbappe going to PSG surely they need to sell - what about Cavani?

Is that still a rumour? Or has it now been confirmed. Says it all when Williams is calling him out.

We need to remember the alternative is what we have been watching. I will have confidence he knows what he's doing and make them a) try and b) be difficult to score against. That will do for a while.

I'm In minority (of 1) but think he hasn't been that bad. Like to see him given a run instead of Schneiderlein.

Unsworth could be Prime Minster with less support.
