It's going to be a very interesting summer window, Echo saying we will be going for 6 or 7 new signings and at least 2 marquee, can't wait, GuernseyBlue.


1.) 25 Apr 2017 08:31:40
That's what my Michael ball says we need to be fair not what the echo is saying.

2.) 25 Apr 2017 16:12:38
I wouldn't believe a word printed in the echo Guernsey mate.

3.) 25 Apr 2017 18:19:54
Yeh hi folks, i thought it was a reputable rag, will not bother with it again thanks and cheers, GuernseyBlue.



19 Apr 2017 19:28:07
Hart favourite with the bookies to join Everton, i think there is better out there, ie Pickford or Butland, GuernseyBlue.


{Ed025's Note - i like butland GB but the more i see of pickford the less i rate him, hes a decent shot stopper but thats about it for me and hes bound to do well with that defence in front of him hes in the action all game, i quite like hart to be honest mate and would not mind him at all...

1.) 19 Apr 2017 19:43:45
Hi Ed thanks mate agree with that, i am sure R K will have someone in mind after so many mistakes recently from Robles, cheers mate, GuernseyBlue.

{Ed025's Note - im sure he will mate..

2.) 20 Apr 2017 02:25:27
Have you watched Hart at all this season ed025. Been awful for Torino that even their owner has pointed it out. Not to mention he's wages, surely ther has to be better value out there for Everton.

{Ed025's Note - i think he is at a club he does not want to be at dilakh, basically hes a good keeper but hes homesick and wants to return to blighty and i think someone will inherit a top keeper there, the problem is that all the top keepers are taken so it wont be easy to get a good fit mate..

3.) 20 Apr 2017 15:46:14
Personally I think Kasper Smeichal would be the best option and hopefully he'd want to come.

4.) 20 Apr 2017 09:53:42
Hi ed. I agree about Pickford. I don't see what all the fuss is about. Everyone in the media seems to rate him tho. I havn't seen it yet. Kasper Smiecle would be top of my list!

{Ed025's Note - pickford is only young GG and he may turn out to be very good, but at the moment he is miles away from being the finished article mate, kasper would be a good choice though..

5.) 21 Apr 2017 15:18:32
Would anyone take a look at begovic? Good keeper with a fair few years left (still only 29) ? Suppose if it depends wether he wants to play or his happy on a big wage doing not much and picking up medals.

{Ed002's Note - Begovic will very probably leave in the summer.}

6.) 21 Apr 2017 23:20:31
Any chance of begovic at Everton ed or are other clubs interested?

{Ed025's Note - im a fan york but to be honest there is nothing linking him to us at all mate..



17 Apr 2017 19:27:42
Hi Ed what do you make of the Echo saying Everton have put a £100 million price tag on Rom, is it a statement saying he is going nowhere and will be honouring his contract, or is it to put off major suitors, this could all end in tears, GuernseyBlue.


{Ed025's Note - i dont know what to make of it GB, it seems its to put suitors off but do we really want him to stay if he does not want to be here?, i would prefer us to sell and use the money to invest in a quality replacement myself mate..

1.) 17 Apr 2017 20:02:32
If rom stays we wil still sign Rooney and William jose as both deals are likely.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 20:16:36
I suspect it's just to try and hike up the price for when suitors do come in for him. If we say £70m, the bids will start at £45m, so maybe saying 100 will mean they start at 70?

3.) 17 Apr 2017 22:56:11
Agree Ander, papers keep saying £60 million so By saying £100 million we will not get that but making it clear he will not be going for the £60 million banded about.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 19:51:47
Thanks Ed agree with you completely, GuernseyBlue.

5.) 17 Apr 2017 23:46:41
I agree to a point Ed in as much as if he wants to go, let him go. The boy has made no secret of his intentions and has been straight up with club and supporters. Now it's time for EFC to be staight up with any prospective suitors, it's £100m or he doesn't go. Never mind "This is the starting price" let's go on from there, take it or leave it.
Pogba went for £89m and he doesn't score goals so £100m for Rom seems about right.

{Ed025's Note - in todays market its not that outlandish mike, goalscorers are the holy grail and say what you like about his overall game but the guy does know where the net is mate..

6.) 18 Apr 2017 00:39:12
There is no doubting Lukaku has talent and why shouldn't people pay the money for such talent, show how much they value him as a player and Lukaku should be proud we value him so high.

7.) 18 Apr 2017 08:04:35
When you go about telling all who will listen that you arare world class then expect a world class price tag to be put in your head. Personally I can't see us getting more than £60m for him but tbh I would rather take the money and move on, he has made it clear we are not his future.

8.) 18 Apr 2017 09:19:16
Lets not forget Everton were prepared to pay £28m when no one else would, we have developed the player over the last couple of seasons and although not the finished article a much better player now!
I think a compromise would be made but really hope the lad could give us another season or two as I feel the club is heading for better times ahead!

{Ed002's Note - Everton had their chance to have him sign a new contract and the club blew it. He wants to leave, Everton can stop that and then have a disgruntled player on their hands who could potentially see his contract out and leave for nothing.}

9.) 18 Apr 2017 13:12:00
its a catch 22 Ed002 let's hope an amicable resolution is forthcoming.

{Ed002's Note - Let's hope so.}



05 Apr 2017 20:05:01
Hi Ed any idea why Mr Moshiri would buy the Liver Building, would it be purely for office development, cheers GuernseyBlue.


{Ed025's Note - im not sure mate to be honest..

1.) 05 Apr 2017 23:31:48
Great investment. Low pound iconic world building right next door to the next major buiding phase of Liverpool Waters and a great view of the new stadium.
Plus his co buyer is a mahor world investment organisation.
Win Win.

2.) 06 Apr 2017 03:58:22
As you say it's a win win situation, a world wide renowned building plus two wingers thrown in for 48 million, that's chicken feed to Mr Moshiri :-)

3.) 06 Apr 2017 06:59:38
Thanks for the info folks, GuernseyBlue.

4.) 06 Apr 2017 07:52:20
Who has the rights to the Liver Bird logo? Does this mean Liverpool have to give up putting the Liver Bird on their shirts etc. Can we have a Blue Liver Bird on our shirts?

{Ed001's Note - are you seriously asking this? You could have had a blue liver bird anyway, it is nothing to do with the Liver Buildings.}

5.) 06 Apr 2017 08:43:23
It was tongue in cheek Ed. Problem with you Liverpool supporters is that you have no sense of humor.

{Ed001's Note - problem is we get asked so many stupid questions you can no longer tell what is idiocy and what is tongue in cheek when you do not know the person well who asked. As for sense of humour, you only need one of those when you are the butt of the jokes, and that is the blue half after the weekend not the reds.... ;-)

6.) 06 Apr 2017 08:53:18
Lighten up Ed. Most of us are getting too old for this nonsense.

{Ed001's Note - ah right, so it is only ok to make a joke if it is you? Not me who needs to lighten up!}

7.) 06 Apr 2017 08:59:38
Yeah but at least we beat Bournemouth at home (6-3 I believe. Hahaha.

{Ed001's Note - fair point, that was pretty embarrassing last night, still an improvement on losing 4-3 like we did at their place.}

8.) 06 Apr 2017 09:02:26
Also ed. If we can't laugh at each other's misfortune and have good banter then we might as well give up. It's what this city is famous for. Turned a little nasty recently and none of us proper fans want that. We all want red and blue side by side, laughing and joking, not fighting down county road. Sadly I think it may never go back to that.

{Ed001's Note - it is sad that has gone. I used to love the banter with friends and family. I often wonder how much of that has been lost because of the cost issue? When my dad was a kid, he would go to watch whichever team was at home that week, with his mates, who were mixed reds and blues. When I was a kid it was a case of saving up to go and it was only reserve matches and the like that we would go to see the other half, so to speak, as you could go for free on a borrowed season ticket at that time. Is money destroying our friendly derby too?}

9.) 06 Apr 2017 09:10:11
Money destroying all football tbh ed. We love it and we will support our clubs til we die but how many 'working class' people can afford to go matches. When people struggle to put a loaf on the table how can players be justified getting millions per month. It's just become all skewed.
Anyway it is what it is and it will get worse until it eats itself I suppose.

{Ed001's Note - I thought that the other day when I was reading about Antonio getting a new contract at West Ham that earns him more a week than I earnt in the last 3 years! It is losing touch with its roots.}

10.) 06 Apr 2017 09:24:29
It's rags to riches for the players. Some coming from nothing to super stardom and millions. It's no wonder some of them lose the plot.
Spectating may well become the preserve of the rich, elitist, especially down London. Us plebs may have to make do with sky and bt. This is another contributing factor behind the increase in kodi and other sites/ devices like them.

{Ed001's Note - if the price of Sky/BT goes up much further most people will no longer be able to afford to watch that either!

What isn't helping is the isolation of players. They are put up on a pedestal and never really interact with normal fans. Clubs always have clauses about doing X amount of community work in players' contracts, but they very rarely, if ever, actually enforce those clauses. About time they enforced them and increased the amount of hours required. Players might appreciate what they have a lot more if they spent more time dealing with the less fortunate of the world.}

11.) 06 Apr 2017 09:33:38
Completely agree. Everton are pretty good with that. Coleman, jags and Baines done a lot recently but lukaku and Barkley etc do less in my opinion.
Gone are the days of players walking the ground with fans. Now it's all flash cars amd big houses. I'm not saying they shouldn't earn a great wage. They top at what they do. We've all played football and nowhere near as good as them but there needs to be a line drawn.
Doctors who save lives etc should be paid massive. not someone who can kick a ball for 180 mins a week. Anyway rant over. Off to work for my minimum wage. Oh to dream.

{Ed001's Note - hopefully you have a good day geoff. I fully agree though, no one begrudges them getting a good wage, it is just that there are others more deserving. Mind it is no different than movie stars and musicians etc who can earn ludicrous sums.}

12.) 06 Apr 2017 10:19:16
You are correct Ed, we were terrible agains your team but we did you a favor against that lot down the East Lancs Road. If it had't been for four additional minutes being added on instead of the three it should have been it would have been even better.
Many of us who were born in Liverpool came from what we then described as "mixed marriages". My Father's side was Blue and my Mother's Red. Always good banter when we got together as a family. I often went to Liverpool's games with my cousins and they came with me to watch the Blues. Good banter but never anything nasty. It is still the same with Red supporting friends I keep in touch with but maybe it is our generation?

{Ed001's Note - it was good to see that Speedo Mick was able to fund raise outside Anfield and it was all good natured there. So maybe there is hope for it after all?}

13.) 06 Apr 2017 12:24:55
I just have to say you ed's do a great job on this site regardless of which team you support so thanks to all of you.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Mike.}



23 Mar 2017 18:21:37
Hi Ed I see now after the news of a new stadium getting closer, there is talk of Goodison becoming a World Heritage Site amongst other ideas, what is your take on this thanks GuernseyBlue.


{Ed025's Note - in my view we are already a world heritage site GB but i would be happy if it was made official mate, i have been away for a few days so have not caught up on much news yet..

Excellent story on why we need the new investment from the Chinese Consortium for the stadium to fund new players on NSNO, GuernseyBlue.


1.) 23 Apr 2017 23:01:19
Read it aswell Guernsey Moshiri guiding us in the right direction again, this summer is going to be big for us blues and the future looks bright with the right men in charge, let's hope us as fans keep calm and trust what is going on behind close doors.

2.) 24 Apr 2017 08:09:34
Ditto that mate, cheers GuernseyBlue.



22 Apr 2017 20:06:13
Hi have to agree with Jimbo below one swallow does not make a summer, also agree our goalie was very nervous, R K said after the match he could only change 3 players at half time and not 5 or 6,i think come the end of the summer we are going to see a completely different team from today, GuernseyBlue.


1.) 22 Apr 2017 22:33:27
Agree with GuernseyBlue and Jumbo. Some people expect us to win every game outside the top 6. Unfortunate doesn't work like that.

West Ham were the better team. Simple as. Don't think we should start axing the squad left right and centre because of it.

I agree with Jimbo we need a squad and we have a decent one. I wouldn't be on for selling someone unless they are replaced with someone better. This way we are improving. Rather than getting rid of players and replacing them with the same quality or even less.

For me West Ham were very well organised and are finishing there season strong. We weren't terrible just outplayed by both their manager and team on the day.

2.) 23 Apr 2017 08:24:03
Our away form all season has been poor with only 4 wins out of 17, and 7 losses.
Middlesbrough away was just the same as yesterday were we did not look like scoring and didn't create, Watford away the same. These are teams and places that you should be going and getting results if you have any hopes for Top 4/ 5.
The point I was making about not being good enough was not just aimed at the starters yesterday but players on the bench or injured a lot. James McCarthy is a goner as he is always injured and when he is still injured attempts to play for Ireland, Lennon has barely featured and isn't going to next season, Kone is, well say no more, these are just 3 as an example. You need a squad of players that whether starting or on the bench give you an option when you come across teams like West Ham yesterday or when your players aren't performing.

3.) 23 Apr 2017 19:53:01
Love my Team and love supporting them and would love them to win every single game 1-0 or more but only for a Season, just so I could say, 'I was there'. One Season would be more than enough after that it would just get boring.

4.) 23 Apr 2017 20:57:31
I think there are quite a few players that should leave. Kone, McCarthy, Barry, Lennon, Ged, McGeady, Stek or Robles with the other being understudy, probably Jags even if he has had a resurgence. Probably Ross and Kev if they don't sign new deals as well.

Our away form has been poor and too defensive. However, I feel Koeman thinks this team can't be trusted away from home and so plays this way. Add to the fact we have limited attacking options on the bench plus players like Kev, Ross and Rom are very different players away from home.

We also need a RB as Holgate is solid but offers us little going forward and at least 1 more CB. This summer is going to be a busy one.



20 Apr 2017 07:58:13
Hi Ed what about us putting in a bid for David De Gea worth a go you reckon, would he impress you, cheers GuernseyBlue.


{Ed025's Note - in our dreams GB, hes an excellent keeper but he will be staying at united it looks like mate well until madrid come a calling anyway..



18 Apr 2017 12:22:25
Good article in the Echo about how the Club arrived at the price for Rom time will tell though they won't sell him on the cheap, GuernseyBlue.




17 Apr 2017 20:09:03

Very good posts all of those above, i agree completely and have said all along that Wayne would be a tremendous asset to Everton not only for the playing side of things but helping the youngsters and also Ross would learn so musch from him, he can also still put in a good shift in the Team when required and would be a very good signing for R K and Mr Moshiri, and one I am sure most fans want, GuernseyBlue.

Hi Ed yep take your point mate, but I will say one thing football is a game of opinions we all come on here and most have different views, cheers anyway mate always good banter, GuernseyBlue.


{Ed001's Note - I was really disappointed in him to be honest. I keep hoping when I watch a match that managers will learn from previous mistakes but very few ever do. I just wonder if the team around him are strong enough to make him reconsider his options. The last thing you want is to end up like Arsenal have in recent years, where there is Wenger and a bunch of yes men. With no one there to challenge his opinion, he never has to really consider other possibilities.}
