Interesting quote from the BBC Rumours page: Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon says he would like to play for "a club like Everton", but the 25-year-old does not believe he is good enough for "the top five in England". (Voetbal International, via Sun) . Isn't he Dutch? I wonder why he has allegedly said this? Perhaps he is trying to manouvre a move? Any thoughts Ed002?

Degsypulford

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it, but if it was said to a Dutch media outlet then it would likely be a link to Ronald Koeman - perhaps last year he said Southampton. I would read nothing in to it at all.}


1.) 07 Feb 2017 13:12:15
Degsy if he is not good enough in his opinion to play for a top 5 side then he is not good enough to play for us. His negativity would go round faster than the waltzes at Southport fun fair.


2.) 07 Feb 2017 13:12:32
The Dutch link was obviously my guess. I guess we are all craving this success so badly we willmake 2 plu 2 = 1,000,000.


3.) 07 Feb 2017 20:10:32
Degsy I am sure my bank works off the same maths sheet, especially when it comes to bank charges.

Did anyone else see the Koeman pre match interview today? Wow he says the right things. He is a born winner and I would hate to be someone who wound him up in the dressing room. You certainly know who is boss and exactly what he wants.

Degsypulford

1.) 03 Feb 2017 19:40:29
Hi Degsy too right there mate, its been a long time time coming but thank goodness Everton got their man cheers, GuernseyBlue.


2.) 03 Feb 2017 22:04:30
I've not seen the interview but from what you have said it's no wonder he's got rid of the so called deadwood. Good luck to the youngsters who have took the chance with both hands and have gone for it I've not seen many better midfielders than Davies for there age.

U23's just beat Man Utd 3 1 away and apparently Donkor was VERY impressive. Caused them all sorts of probs. a couple of assists and won a penalty.

Degsypulford

1.) 30 Jan 2017 22:58:54
Sambou was a handful I hear and grabbed a couple of goals


2.) 30 Jan 2017 23:38:16
Looked great, took goal well and holds the line on offsides really well


3.) 30 Jan 2017 22:29:07
Do any of the eds know if there's a fee to buy Donkor at the end of the loan and if so how much it is? Apologies if the question has already been asked before.

{Ed002's Note - It is not a loan to buy and Everton would need to negotiuate with Wolfsburg.}


 

 

23 Jan 2017 09:40:14
Ed002, I have looked through your past comments on some "continental" players. and it looks like a waiting game. Do you know of any other lower league youngsters that we are watching? eg in the same level of Lookman type. promising with great potential?

Degsypulford

{Ed002's Note - Adam Webster but it now has to wait.}


1.) 23 Jan 2017 13:01:40
I am guessing because of his injury. which could also put the whole thing out of the window? Shame, because he looks a promising lad from Youtube clips.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he is injured and it could be a major spanner in the works.}

Does anyone know how many of Rom's goals are at home compared to away? I just have a sneaking feeling he is scoring many more at home. because of this pressing game and intensity that we do at home. When we are awaay and sitting deeper, he seems to get isolated. Maybe we need to think about our away performances and how we use him? He seems to be so isolated against some of the lower teams when we are away.

Degsypulford

1.) 15 Feb 2017 12:43:25
I shouldn't get to worried as our style of play will develop away from home as RK's influence takes greater hold. At the moment believe it or not the quality in depth is still not there and the process of identifying the players that fit RK's profile is ongoing. The summer and pre-season will see further changes for the better. This is only 7 1/ 2 months into an initial 2 year project on the playing side (longer on the commercial and new stadium side) , but our progress has been in my view ahead of schedule so far.


2.) 15 Feb 2017 16:42:58
Couldn't agree more Bill 100% correct in my opinion, So I will shut up and re-emerge at a later date.


3.) 15 Feb 2017 17:04:46
Well I was probably the most negative one on here under Martinez. But as soon as we got Walsh I was happy. A couple of other posters on here were also "critical" of my posts but in a positive way and I would like to say a public thank you to these guys because I could see that it really was starting to be out with the old and in with the new. NBTB was one and also BlueJohn Uns. Others also helped me see that at last progress was indeed being made. don't get me wrong, I can still see setbacks ahead. but not the impending relegation that I really could see coming under Martinez. I used to use the "r" word and be heavily criticised for it. I now use the "E" word. but cautiously. Yes Rom might decide to leave. But we will surely get in the region of 100 million for him now? At 23 with a guaranteed 20+ goals a season with a struggling club. he must be looking at 40 goals a season by the time he is 26 years old in a winning side! That with Walsh's keen eye will surely mean 3 decent players. You can see the quality of our recent young signings. You can also see our defence toughening up. particularly at set pieces. You can see how the pressing game works when all the players are in tune. I am hoping we will make a couple more good signings in the summer and let the older players move on. We still might get the odd frustrating game. but wow what a difference to a season ago! Finally it is worth mentioning it is nice to see us change shape mid games to try and get a winner or equaliser. Koeman is quite astute at seeing how we need to move extra into midfield or press higher or have more width. and he does it. I love the way he says it like it is. Why waffle around something when it clearly is not right!


4.) 16 Feb 2017 06:10:26
It's 8 home goals to 7 away goals this season at least, so not much difference. That being said, he does appear to get more chances at home. It's amazing what 4 or 5 months has changed for you Degsy. You have gone from the most negative by a country mile to probably being in the top 5 most positive. It's nice to see you so upbeat. I will be satisfied if we stay in 7th (as I would have taken that at the start of the season) but I will be over the moon if we manage to improve on 7th by the end of the season. Exciting times ahead!


5.) 16 Feb 2017 08:14:21
Cheers mate. Yes I feel positive again. I did used to be positive prior to Martinez. and now I am again. Enough said!


6.) 16 Feb 2017 10:00:56
the only thing I don't agree with is, you say Lukaku will leave and we will command 100 million as he is scoring 20+ for a struggling side. first we would struggle to get 60 million so 100 million is dream land, 2nd we are no longer a struggling side.

we are a team moving up 7th in the premiership is probably 3rd in la liga by comparison and we really need to lose this mentality that our better players are going to leave us. as his agent said we are a different beast now. do you remember when Lukaku first signed up with this clown, he said he would never of signed for us if he was his agent.

now since moshiri came in he has done a complete u turn and wants lukaku to sign a new deal which benefits both sides and guarantees top dollar for lukaku ie wages and us a transfer fee.

the difference being we will hold the all the cards and will only accept a bid if it suits us. I don't think lukaku is now pushing to leave and willing to wait 2 seasons (including this one) to see if we can challenge.

so all I'm saying is our club is now run like a top premiership club (with some changes still needed). so it's time for us fans to behave the same. if lukaku comes out and says he wants to go goodbye and good luck, but unless he puts a transfer request in, he is staying anyway. come on you mighty blues.


7.) 16 Feb 2017 10:03:10
The re-emergence of everton is coupled with degsy positivity. Is it a coincidence. Keep up the positive posts and enjoy the new journey like the rest of us.


8.) 16 Feb 2017 14:38:38
I think we all felt the way you did at some point over the past 2 years Degsy. For me you're a passionate supporter that worships the blues.

We all don't agree on certain things and that's the beauty of a place like this, to get a different perspective.

I know though we will all be thinking and feeling the same thing when we win a trophy in the next couple of years or so. Fingers and everything else crossed 😉.


9.) 16 Feb 2017 17:39:32
BLUEY79 I never said he WOULD leave. just that it is a possibility and surely by the time (if he does) leaves. he will be worth 100mil. Pogba went for 85 mill!


10.) 16 Feb 2017 19:17:49
Firstly let me say that I can see a lot of positive thing happening to our club. Moshiri, Koeman and Walsh are great additions and we seem to be moving forward from a business viewpoint. However, on the business side I will not be happy until I see the new stadium on the dock signed and sealed. I have been through one "ring fenced" scenario and I don't want to go through another.
On the playing side Koeman has done a lot of good things and I am very please with what I see. However I was positive about Martinez during his first year and then it went belly up. Koeman has been fortunate in having Lukaku who Martinez signed and also having the benefit of Davies and Holgate coming through to the first team. I know he is the one that gave them the chance but he did not bring them to the club. No doubt Koeman has improved the existing players especially from a fitness viewpoint. However he still has a lot of work to do in recruiting players and keeping key players like Lukaku.
So summing this up I see a lot of positives with the Koeman reign but I am not over the moon just yet. Let's see how we finish off the year and what reinforcements we bring in in the summer before we get too carried away with this new found optimism.
Mike.


11.) 16 Feb 2017 20:15:06
We all see things differently. Who knows what would happen if Lukaku leaves? It could turn out to be a positive thing. Don't get me wrong, the last thing I want is Lukaku gone.

Back when Lineker left everyone thought we would struggle the following season without him. Everyone knows we went one better the following season and took the cup. Point is it was a blessing in disguise.

Not saying for one minute we should let Lukaku go but the point is everything would if he left. No one knows whether the end result would be positive, negative or indifferent. We can all be clever in hindsight.

This is truly what I hope happens. Lukaku stays for the long term and Koeman builds a good team around him. I honestly think we are not far off challenging at the top. If we keep going in the direction we are we will get there sooner than people think imho.

Chelsea are out on there own this season but the following 5 teams are very close to each other. I expect us to be challenging and competing as much as any of these 5 come the end of next season. A bit of luck and Walsh working his magic during the summer would make it very achievable imho.


12.) 17 Feb 2017 07:14:45
To further add to your point NBTB, when Rooney left after we finished 17th we all thought that was it, but we finished 4th that season (don't know how looking at that team lol) .

I agree that losing Lukaku may not be the end for our top 4 hopes next season, as Walsh will surely be able to find a gem or two to replace him, but I am worried about a scenario where Koeman and Lukaku leave.

That being said, if you read the Echo article about the Koeman-Barcelona link, then it becomes clear that Koeman may not be the best fit for Barcelona. Koeman is too outspoken, and also does not like superstars in the dressing room. At the moment Messi, Suarez and Neymar are almost bigger than the club itself and may not appreciate Koeman's style of management. As I said before though, if Barcelona offer Koeman a contract he will bite their hands off for it.


 

 

12 Feb 2017 10:31:59
Not directly related to Everton but still affects where we end up in the league. and maybe when we play certain teams. I remember a few weeks ago discussing refereeing decisions for the "top 4" clubs with a few of you guys. Remember what I said about Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsy Whinger being manipulators of referees. by crititicising them when a decision went against them. and being happy to pay the 20 grand fine the FA imposed on them afterwards because it was chickeen feed compared to 3 points in the league. 2 weeks ag Whinger was up in front of the FA for pushing the ref. Yesterday Clattenburg allowed a handball goal for Sanchez. ok he may not have seen that one? But not to send Gibbs off for what was obviously a take out when the Hull forward was clean through. Gibbs was not even looking at the ball! Well that just supported my theory. Clattenburg was grit scared to send him off because he knew Whinger was waiting to lay into him verbally after the game. Until they punish the managers like Ferguson, Whinger, Mourinho with fines that equate to the deed. eg take points off them or fine them say £1,000,000 then this will continue. The score was 1 nil at the time and Hull were on top. but 11 against 11 meant Arsenal held on and scored on the break in the last minute. 3 points. Worth the 20 grand fine or whatever it was he got.

Degsypulford

1.) 12 Feb 2017 11:37:56
If a professional ref is making decisions based on what a manager may say to him should not be a referee. I agree to increase the punishment but to say the ref is scared is absolute tosh. We have refs at our local Sunday league who get grief from the players, the managers and the seven fans watching the game. The grief they get is far more intimidating than the moaners in the prem.


2.) 12 Feb 2017 12:06:20
I would not put 100% trust any Ref in any sport, we need to go like Rugby, (cameras)


3.) 12 Feb 2017 12:21:02
What is the old saying, "where there is money there is corruption".


4.) 12 Feb 2017 12:40:31
On the topic of refs Mike Dean had a shocker yesterday. Clayton should have a received a second yellow for a late challenge on Davis and Ramirez should have seen red for his challenge on Baines. Clearly he got into to trouble for handing out too many reds and now is too scared to make any real decision (even the obvious ones)


5.) 12 Feb 2017 12:57:21
CToffee you are absolutely right. I don't believe there is corruption as such. I just think that there are those decisions where the ref has to make a choice and he isnot 100% sure. Ref's have to do it all the time. I have refereed kids games beefore now and know from my own experience that the Mum's and Dad's on the sidelines are waiting to give you a hard time, so you make decisions as best you can. but when you know they are an obnoxious lot and you are not 100% sure about something, it is really difficult to decide with a clear mind. Clattenburg should have 100% sent off Gibbs. Dean should have 100% sent off 2. I would bet that if it was the opposition of Arsenal yesterday, they would have all been off.


6.) 12 Feb 2017 15:30:29
I think that's exactly it degsy. I must say I don't envy the refs as they're only really spoken about when they get a decision wrong and not when they actually have a good game. That being said, it does seem that some refs are more lenient with certain teams and are much quicker to make a negative call against a lesser team playing against an Arsenal, Utd, City or Chelsea etc.


7.) 12 Feb 2017 15:24:43
Guys referees have always made decisions on what club shirt the player happens to be wearing. Clattenberk is all about him, he 'missed' clear hand ball and bottled the sending off. Dean is just a clown. Need to do what they do in rugby, yes it adds a little time on, but at least they get it right.


8.) 14 Feb 2017 12:04:12
Of course the system is bent. Have a little read about Mark Halsey earlier this season being asked to turn a blind eye.

Have a look at Gerrard telling Clattenburg to give a red instead of a yellow. As a ball is crossing the line in a merseyside derby and the ref blowing for full time.

TV is the answer maybe but if these two incidents happen in full view of millions I'm not sure what this is going to change.


 

 

11 Feb 2017 07:55:30
Apparently Koeman laughed off criticism of our defence by Martinez by replying, "Oh he is a good talker! " Words like Nail on Head spring to mind!

Degsypulford

1.) 11 Feb 2017 08:42:13
Koemans response to Martinez was "phenomenal" and " as good as it gets".


2.) 11 Feb 2017 12:20:16
Never mind Martinez. Hope Arsenal don't come looking for Koeman in the summer.


3.) 11 Feb 2017 14:41:15
I don't think he will jump ship in all honesty NB, he is just getting everything to his liking right now and he has always stated that it would take him up to two years to mould a team in his image. I'd say that, if Wenger does call it a day at the end of this season, then Simeone would be his replacement. Fingers crossed they leave RK well alone.


4.) 11 Feb 2017 15:51:40
Why would he go to Arsenal lads? We are a bigger club than them, have a new and better stadium than theirs on the way and this time next season we'll be sitting in the table where they'd normally be in 3rd or 4th place!


5.) 11 Feb 2017 15:53:24
I would be thinking along the same lines spudv. But if Arsenal offer him an attractive package? Funny I was thinking Simeone. My favourite manager. Hope they don't get him either! Make it harder for us to overtake them.

Top classs Sunderland FC and in particular Jermaine Defoe. Visiting young Bradley Lowery in hospital. Defoe hugged young Bradley until he fell asleep. I am sure he had other important things to do, but Bradley would not let him leave. so Defoe stayed and hugged him until the lad was fast asleep. Top class footballer and human being!

I don't want to knock RM. I did enough of that when he was our manager. he is nothing to do with us now. I would just like to know what the stats are for defending set pieces. Gut feel tells me we have conceded very few since we started defending them in training. Apparently RM stated that we never practiced set pieces under his reign. could that be a reason? Just a thought.

He actually said he would not stand in Wayne's way for a big money move to China. He did not say he would allow him to move to the team one place below them who are showing considerable ambition and must now be considered a competitor. Perhaps he would let us buy him. but I would think there would be a considerable fee? Probably dictated by the sort of money that would be offered by the Chinese. eg I cannot see them turning down a huge fee from China to allow him to move to us for free. This is of course assuming he is under contract and the Chinese are offering a fee? Any knowledge on that Ed?

I think Arsenal are a strange case Bluegray87. They are a club who grew organically without too much heavy investment from a sugar daddy. ie unlike Chelsea. They also decided that early on in the creation of the Chapions League, that they would invest in a huge larger ground for their fans. I think they underestimated the cost of building it somewhat and it was a matter of balancing the books re signing players. I think they are through that period now, but for some years they were behind the spending power of Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool. Perhaps part of it was Wenger's stubborn attitude but we will never know how much was down to him. Anyway, yes they are a team that is constantly in 2nd, 3rd or 4th at the moment. but so are Man Utd, Liverpool and perhaps Man City too now? I think their fans have been spoon fed success a few years back and now expect it. I also think that other countries have been a bit better at development and growth. The English clubs have wasted a lot of money and had it very easy. With just a few signings, Arsenal could easily be a top European club again.
