Ah well that should cheer everyone up on here especially all of our budding managers, good old Jim White has come out and said following his chat with Mr Moshiri earlier this week, Marco will be staying for the long term, so that's that then end of.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 17:03:13
I wouldn't expect him to go before the end of the season anyway. We are not going to be relegated and that is all our board and owner will be worried about right now. The season is obviously a dud so Silva's position will be looked at in the summer. All I can tell you is that if we lose most of our remaining games and Silva has lost the players he is doomed regardless of what chummy White has to say.

2.) 05 Feb 2019 17:41:55
Think you are right there mate, Player Power and all that.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 18:53:18
Just for once before I pop my clogs I would love to hear a chairman or club owner say to the players "I pay you to play, don't play and I won't pay. I pick the manager, you play for him, you play for the club" Bloody overpaid ponces at times.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 19:23:03
I think mike Ashley said something along those lines once. It didn’t go down well of course.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 19:24:07
Stop there wage on capability.

6.) 05 Feb 2019 19:24:58
Absolutely, but it will never happen unfortunately. I just wish Brands could find some evil thugs to play alongside these ponces who would kick them in the goolies in the shower after the game if they don't try.

7.) 05 Feb 2019 20:01:31
Sponsored by angry birds it's a shame we don't see a bit of angry birds on the pitch.

8.) 05 Feb 2019 21:36:48
Moshiri is meant to have said according to Sky that siva was the man to develop young talent, well not seen a single new young talent!

9.) 05 Feb 2019 23:06:00
He probably is but develop is the key word. Asking him to produce some mythical youngster after half a season is optimistic.
The under 23s are doing well though.

10.) 06 Feb 2019 09:29:51
Spot on Smit.

11.) 06 Feb 2019 11:35:42
I would like to start seeing a bit of James Mcarthy, I know he isn't going to be the catalyst that will get us scoring 3s and 4s against anyone, but he will get stuck in, and start roughing sides up a bit, nothing gets Goodison off it's seat quite like a boss tackle on an opposition player, remember Neville on Ronaldo 08/ 09 season?

12.) 08 Feb 2019 18:52:32
U23's are doing well and have been doing well, before Koeman and certainly before Silva. Of Moshri wanted his youth developed he should have kept Martinez. Silva is a fraud the topic has even been picked up by talksport tonight.



02 Feb 2019 20:44:40
Ed 025 Knives are out mate, being reported Wagner, Rodgers and Howe as the three main contenders to replace under fire Marco, any info mate.


{Ed025's Note - its a bit early for that i feel GB...well at the moment mate..

1.) 02 Feb 2019 20:55:27
He will have to pull his socks up then Ed, this is a points game, how the heck we have ever got 33 points is beyond me playing like we have lately mate.

{Ed025's Note - we started off quite brightly thats why GB but lately something has really gone wrong, for me we need to lose the zonal marking as the players we have at our disposal are not comfortable with it (at least silva,s version of it), we also need to bench players who are not performing, siggy in particular and richie and gomes need to be taken out of the firing line for me even if its only for a couple of games, he needs to admit something is wrong and change things even if it fails to work, i want him to succeed but he is doing himself no favours at all at the moment mate..

2.) 02 Feb 2019 20:58:42
If we lose to city is he still going to be there Ed.

{Ed025's Note - im not sure shogs but if this rubbish getting served up at the moment continues...then i dont hold out much hope for him mate..

3.) 02 Feb 2019 21:06:08
We are in this situation because of to many poor decisions on managers, he needs time it’s not good but you can see from this window we have to shed deadwood before we can move forward, otherwise we will keep plugging holes with the wrong signings and no proper plan to go forward!

{Ed025's Note - it has to improve wakka and shortly, we do need stability mate i agree but there has to be signs that we are heading in the right direction or believe you me the axe will fall mate..

4.) 02 Feb 2019 22:07:00
It’s the lack of passion that gets me. And it’s pain me to say but I wish we had a manager that showed his passion like Klopp and even the wolves manager.

{Ed025's Note - it does make a difference eddy and gets the fans on side which is a really good thing..

5.) 02 Feb 2019 23:16:53
One constant we start slowly get put under pressure and the nerves set it, it quietens the crowd and the opposition push on!
Every single game! Where is the motivation in the team from the start? This is down to the manager and senior pros! Younger players look so nervous.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 08:19:28
No other Manger could sort this Everton team out, it was the same under Koeman Unsworth Allardyce and now Silva, they are just not good enough, if the whole team were put up for sale only Pickford would be sort after the rest not sure what valve or what division if any.

7.) 03 Feb 2019 09:18:20
Have to disagree it's a good squad of players, the tactics are misguided too reliant on pickford as a playmaker. Zonal defending or man to man makes no difference if no defender attacks the ball. Keane makes more errors than Holgate ever did. Go back to a familiar 442 or 352 get richarlison and dcl upfront.

8.) 03 Feb 2019 09:21:44
Oh forgot Martinez.

9.) 03 Feb 2019 09:24:10
The massive problem is not Silva it was the recruitment over the last 3 seasons and that’s what he has been left with to sort out, impossible situation in my opinion.

10.) 03 Feb 2019 11:07:59
Agree to a point but a manager has to get the best out of what he has and this guy does not.

11.) 03 Feb 2019 13:19:56
The "problem" is made up of lots of pieces to this jigsaw. Changing managers is part of the problem, but unfortunately because this manager isn't working out, it's got to happen again. He has demonstrated he can't work with/ motivate what he has got to work with. Part of the problem is he's not inspirational, I can't believe his demeanour changes to what we all see, when he is working with the players and staff.

Yes, a helluva lot of these players aren't "good enough" but it will take time to replace them, at least 5 transfer windows. What I would expect is an honest assessment and get rid of the worse offenders and bring in players who are young, keen and passionate about wanting to improve our club.

We need leaders not journeymen or depressive head down types (Jimmy Mc clones! ) The next manager choice HAS to be right, talk about pivotal moment in our history. I trust Brandts is the right man and Moshiri has put his money where his mouth is. Silva to me is another AVB or Avram Grant, seen as "the next big thing" but ultimately found wanting.

A manager like Benitez (preferably Benitez) is what I believe what we need. Problem is there aren't too many around. A positive outlook would be the first thing I'd have on the job advert. Not saying change now, unless we get the right man, but certainly need a new man in place by season end.

12.) 03 Feb 2019 14:05:02
Good post mate, just look at Ole at Man U for a young manager, as some are saying what about Arteta, reckon he would jump at the chance with Tim Cahill backing him up to manage Everton.

13.) 03 Feb 2019 19:35:47
I'd go with Arteta as well.

14.) 03 Feb 2019 20:27:49
The difference with ole and Man u and us is, most of that team finished 2nd last season.

15.) 03 Feb 2019 20:45:11
good point Smit mate.

16.) 04 Feb 2019 09:30:46
what a terrible list of potential replacements, my oh my will it ever get better.



31 Jan 2019 16:31:21
Danny Drinkwater the latest player to be linked to us.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 16:50:30
I saw that earlier on and heard a few stories about Anderlecht wanting Bolasie. Another one was Cuco Martina to Feyenoord. I'm not sure if we'll get anyone in though.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 17:36:40
Yep Howie mate.



30 Jan 2019 19:13:20
Guardian now saying we are going to make a deadline day transfer for the Belgian Striker Batshuayi, hmmm could be the usual final day Marquee signing I suppose.


1.) 30 Jan 2019 19:41:53
We've been linked with Batshuayi through all of this window so until it happens I'm not going to believe it. So many stories going around though you can tell there's not long left now.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 20:35:47
Seems to be gathering speed this one, seen it on many sites, 35 mill though, hmm.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 21:08:45
Don’t we need to sell first?

4.) 30 Jan 2019 21:37:04
I am not sure we have to sell to raise funds, I think we just want players of our massive wage bill before we pay another huge pay check, which is why Bolasie just ending his loan spell at Villa is less than helpful. Maybe the eds could shed some more light on the situation though because I am just speculating.

{Ed002's Note - I would ignore the money.}

5.) 30 Jan 2019 21:46:23
Taking money out of the equation, and I am sorry about asking about Batshuayi about a million times but do you think a deal can be reached tomorrow Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Right now probably not.}

6.) 30 Jan 2019 21:56:14
Thanks for the info again Ed.

7.) 31 Jan 2019 12:45:08
Looks like he’s going on loan to West Ham or Betis BBC reporting loan terms are agreed.



30 Jan 2019 17:49:07
Hey Ed 025 tonight, Marco threatens to resign if Gueye is sold, any info mate that would make a couple on here chuckle in their boots eh.


{Ed025's Note - nothing here on that one GB, but if he wants a way out or indeed the board do its the perfect excuse mate..

1.) 30 Jan 2019 18:08:57
We could out of the frying pan into the fire if that happens mate, i hope it doesn't cheers mate.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 18:10:28
He said earlier that he understood that money talks and if the right offer came in he would understand?

3.) 30 Jan 2019 18:14:52
Cheers degsy mate.

4.) 30 Jan 2019 18:33:21
What manager resigns nowadays? Why throw away a pay off? The news is utter guff!

23 Feb 2019 15:08:05
Chelsea hit with a Two Window transfer ban and fined £460.000,what will that do for our chances of signing Zouma perminently in the summer, it also looks like City will get the same.


{Ed002's Note - Nothing.}

1.) 23 Feb 2019 15:20:42
Its just incoming transfers to Chelsea then Ed, many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but it will be a while before there is any ban.}



22 Feb 2019 09:33:39
Hey ed 025 this match on Tuesday against Cardiff could be a defining moment in Marco's reign as Everton manager, anything less than a win could be his downfall, if we only draw or heaven for bid we loose I reckon that will be the final straw for Mr Moshiri especially with Liverpool coming up next Sunday, it is absolutely vital we get all three points from the Cardiff game, what's your view mate cheers.


{Ed025's Note - cardiff are doing very nicely GB and my guess would that it will be a draw, on form i cant see us winning it to be honest mate but i live in hope, i dont think the result will be pivotal to whether marco stays or goes but if we get a whooping in the derby then that may well change..

1.) 22 Feb 2019 19:32:59
Why are people so keen to get rid of a manager after 5 minutes? If Silva is sacked before the end of the season then it will happen again and again and again. If FM sacks managers after 5 minutes then I hope he fecks off to another club and ruins them. What we need now is patience and allow Brands and Silva to create their own identity by getting the players they want. Whether or not that be by bringing on the youngsters and some new players or totally new players is to be seen, but they need time.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 19:43:56
They certainly do Nick mate, but this is a results Business and I just can't see us getting the nessesary points we need, i would like to see Marco given time but I think the knives will be out, time will tell mate.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 19:54:48
Well if FM wants to listen to those who throw the knives he will get nowhere GB. He needs to listen to Brands, otherwise why make him a director? I know it is hard at the present time GB but it hurts to see our club in turmoil and the laughing stock of the EPL.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 20:04:39
I agree mate having been a Fan since the early sixties and believe me this hurts to see our Club in this predicament.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 20:06:38
I totally agree with you Nick, we need stability in the club, just let them do their job, he definitely needs time, I have trust in Silva, Brands and Moshiri we need to get off their backs.

6.) 22 Feb 2019 21:40:55
Agree. He needs time. Will he get it?
Who knows but I do think Moshiri is looking at things a bit differently now.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 12:35:16
I expect that he will stay for now before Moshiri makes another bad appointment I fear. If you keep appointing failures with short term track records failure is guerenteed followed by getting another manager.

8.) 23 Feb 2019 14:32:30
Don't agree at all dc If Marco does go and it's a big if, Mr Moshiri will not make the same mistake again he will have someone with a proven track record lined up, of that I have no doubt, I would still like Marco to have a fair crack of the whip and be given a chance to have his own players brought in.

9.) 23 Feb 2019 18:40:38
My question is. Who with a winning track record is going to come to us?
Some of these posters on here think we can just cherry pick from the best managers in the world.
Well you need to wake up to reality.
Can anyone give me a top name manager who we could realistically get?
One that you could guarantee could bring us success, given a bit of money.

10.) 23 Feb 2019 21:36:41
Who would be your pick Smit mate.



14 Feb 2019 08:58:20
Fonesca being linked with us again this morning, definitely a step up.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 10:55:38
I thought we had a manager.
All this talk of who is linked or who we want is pointless and a bit crass in my opinion.
We have a manager, until that changes support the team and manager we have!

2.) 14 Feb 2019 11:42:52
Funny I thought this was a Rumour site lol.

3.) 14 Feb 2019 14:51:48
We have someone, whether we can do him for the trades description act with the title manager is another matter.

4.) 14 Feb 2019 17:17:31
He could probably do the club for claiming they have a football team :-)

5.) 14 Feb 2019 20:16:42
I don't think we have a Manager gingerdan.

6.) 15 Feb 2019 06:16:24
Could probably do most on here for claiming to be supporters.



10 Feb 2019 18:45:30
Hey Ed 025 after watching our match again last night and sleeping on it led me to think surely if this continues much longer and we loose again against Cardiff Marco's time with Everton must be up, with the gap we now have before our next match is it not a good time now and not leave it any longer before Mr Moshiri gets some one new in, i have seen mentioned that the Leeds manager has been looked at before even when Roberto got his marching orders but is he good enough, goodness knows how much our last three managers have cost us not only to them get in but also pay them off we simply have to get the next manager right, the only two that I reckon we might have a chance of getting would be Simeone or Fonesca pardon the spelling, what do you reckon mate.


{Ed025's Note - i cant see simeone taking on a project as difficult as ours has become GB, but fonseca could be a good shout, i dont know when the axe will be wielded mate but if the cardiff game goes tits up the pressure on moshiri to act will be immense..

1.) 10 Feb 2019 19:18:50
I just couldn't take a Two Bob manager Ed we have to get it right this time.

2.) 11 Feb 2019 08:40:33
Can we afford to sack him, we could of bought a new team with the amount of money we paid out to sacked Managers.
The recruitment has been the main problem over the years and that why Everton brought in Brands
Not sure what a new manager can do with this squad, I've said it before they are what they are, just not up to the level we want to bring success.
Koeman couldn't do it, Unsworth couldn't do it and Allardyce got a little success by parking the bus and playing pub football
if I were the owner I would be contacting all the agents for half of them to find their under performing multi millionaire players a new club, we need to cash in and start a fresh for next season.

3.) 11 Feb 2019 10:40:55
Could be the only way mate, something just has to be done this cannot continue.

4.) 11 Feb 2019 12:46:41
I like Simeone but he would be forever in the stands.

5.) 11 Feb 2019 13:03:31
This is not a good time of the season to get a new manager so why not sack him and let Unsworth take the job for the rest of the season, he did win his last match 6-1.
We could not do any worse but he would give a few youngsters a go which would freshen up the team.

6.) 11 Feb 2019 13:15:43
And Unsy would probably pick up the 7 points to make sure of safety, (I have to admit, as badly as I rate Silva, I didn't think even he could bring us to this. )

7.) 11 Feb 2019 16:49:08
Won't lose to Cardiff GB, but imagine if we do, I just cannot see what the excuses will be. 'Oh the lads are knackered after 2 weeks lying in the Sun'.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know why you think we wont lose to cardiff DFS?, they are doing very well at the moment and i think its too hard to call mate..

8.) 11 Feb 2019 16:59:43
Good shout Ed mate, We lost to Southampton dfs mate, i think right now we can't beat anyone, right disillusioned I am with the whole lot of em lol, i just want my Beloved Everton to have passion, seems the Team have forgotten how to win.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i thought different GB i really do, im usually a confident guy and back us to win but im as shot as the team mate..

9.) 11 Feb 2019 17:23:49
Does the black cat not have 10 more mates? Given his sleek moves we would not be a pushover that's for sure :-)

{Ed025's Note - nice one nick..he would have another 10 pussies along side him anyway mate..

10.) 11 Feb 2019 17:41:58
Why on earth would Simeone leave Atletico Madrid for Everton? Come on be realistic. I'd say your best bet would be, keep Silva and see how he does until the end of the season as you won't go down, if he doesn't pick up then I'd go for the lad at Southampton. He was very good at RB liepzig and seems to be doing a decent job with a limited group of players at the saints.

{Ed033's Note - Simeone might be persuaded for lunatic amounts of money :)

11.) 11 Feb 2019 18:31:18
And goodness knows how much we have shelled out on all the comings and goings.

12.) 11 Feb 2019 18:57:52
Maybe ed033, but I'd be astonished if he did regardless of wages. I think he'd only leave for a massive club in the champions League if at all. I think they have to be realistic in there next appointment if indeed there is one and as I said the guy at Southampton has the potential to be a very good manager, not even going to attempt to spell his name, plays decent football did very well with RBL, seems to say the correct things in interviews and is a very forthright and passionate manager.

13.) 11 Feb 2019 20:17:22
Ed25 Cardiff game the blokes job is on the line, (if it isn't then God knows what he has to do to lose it) , he has 17 days now to come to his senses and work something out instead of pushing and pushing a failed system (with this bunch of players) . Incidentally I have just read and listened to his latest interview, after Watford, I kid you not his waffling is worse than Martinez, how the heck can an astute business man like Moshri be taken in and how the heck can Moshri trust his advisor after blunder after blunder.

{Ed025's Note - cardiff is a massive game DFS, and without wanting to sound too dramatic its one of a very few games that give us a realistic chance of getting some points, it wont be easy though especially the way we are performing, but if we dont get anything then we could very easily be drawn into yet another fight towards the bottom end of the league mate..

14.) 11 Feb 2019 21:50:14
Don't think the bottom 3 or 4 can possibly overhaul us. Odds are we can get at least 5 points from 11 games and 38/ 39 points is safety this year.



09 Feb 2019 18:40:37
Hey Ed 025 I watched the match today and I have been one of the ardent fans on here to give Marco time, but on yet another very dismal showing I have to say my patience is running very very thin, i just cannot see where he going to turn things around, we are so lucky we have a few points on the board and should stay up, but I really can't see any other team as bad as us, we have Cardiff coming up after the two week break in footy so maybe this would be a good time to let him go as we a bit of time before the next match to get a replacement in, we loose against Cardiff and I cannot see us winning his time will be well and truly up, cheers mate.


{Ed025's Note - i wish i knew the answer GB, actually i thought today was not as bad as in previous weeks as they all put a shift in, but there was little threat as usual and we dont play as a team, i would describe it as rugby where the ball keeps getting passed sideways and backwards but with little forward momentum, as you say the cardiff game could be a watershed and im not confident that we will beat them at all, i really dont know what to tell you mate i will just take a back seat i think..

1.) 09 Feb 2019 19:40:00
AS an add on to above Ed 025 what really niffed me today was that Jimmy Mac supposedly fit and Lookman who is fit can't get in the team and why Siggy is picked week in and week out will finally push Marco out for me mate, this was just the type of game Jimmy Mac would have relished.

{Ed025's Note - we have been saying it for a few weeks GB, i just wish i could fathom the reason why mate..

2.) 09 Feb 2019 20:35:48
The only thing I think it could be is that he is not fit at all mate.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 20:54:15
I love this Club lads. I take no pleasure in you Ed and GB seeing through this fraud. To be honest in all my 69 years, I have never been so thankful of my family, that despite the Grandson Red LOL.

4.) 09 Feb 2019 21:02:40
As another addon. Silva is probably on a 4 year multi million contract. I along with thousands of other Evertonians would love to know just who this advisor to Mr Moshri is.

{Ed0333's Note - Orville The Duck judging by you’re last three managers.

5.) 09 Feb 2019 21:22:24
Lennie the lion Ed mate.

6.) 09 Feb 2019 21:29:58
Ed333 normally lad that would be funny. Now though you and me need to meet.

{Ed0333's Note - I’ll be over for the title parade in May buddy.

7.) 09 Feb 2019 22:32:59
