Think i'm right about the silly season, being reported Chelsea interested in Peter Crouch! Sky Sports News!

Howie bluenose

1.) 18 Jan 2018 22:43:27
Didn't see that one coming Howie and our supporters moan about our transfer dealings, I wonder what Chelsea supporters are thinking about this, I'm happy with Cenk and Theo just get that elusive LB in and we will all be happy.

2.) 19 Jan 2018 08:53:10
Ditto that mate excellent window so far with more to come.

3.) 19 Jan 2018 01:11:22
Lee1878- let the Chelsea page be a warning not to piss off Ed002. Total shambles.

4.) 19 Jan 2018 13:27:57
Skysports reporting that we intrested signing Bayern left back Juan bernat on loan as he is third choice behind David alaba and rafinha don't know much about him but got to be better than what we have know available right know.

5.) 19 Jan 2018 14:41:03
Said it time and time again crouchys a great plan b.



26 Jul 2016 13:05:08
there you go folks, Sky Austria changed their tune now. Marko Arnautovic to sign 4 year extension.


Howie bluenose

1.) 26 Jul 2016 13:20:20
Arautavic from stoke💩 not a bad player but sureley we got to be aiming higher than that if we want top 4.

2.) 26 Jul 2016 16:20:32
We are becoming a bit of a joke in this transfer window all talk about us having all this money to spend and we are reluctant to spend any virtually every other team is strengthing and getting stronger the likes of West ham, the reds, stoke, spurs have all improved there squad significantly except us we finished 11 last year if we don't start making sigining soon then we will be lucky to finish 11th this year.

3.) 26 Jul 2016 17:42:16
Why are we becoming a bit of a joke?

Why do you expect us to just go an spaff all our money away, just because we have now got some.

To go and spunk it on some mercenaries that don't give a f*** about the club and bring it to its knees like so many other clubs.

It takes time to get the right players in. What do you want us to do, just go an sign every player the rags link us with?

Also you are going on about these teams strengthening. Just adding players for the sake of adding players doesn't strengthen you.

We have a solid side already, not to different to the side that nearly got champs league under Bobby. With a far better and realistic manager at the helm, and 4 or 5 quality signings we won't be too far away from pushing for top 4.

We need a striker, a creative cm, a cdm, a cb and a goaly. Not a whole new squad.

4.) 26 Jul 2016 17:53:03
Just because we haven't signed anyone doesn't mean we are reluctant to spend. Firstly, I take any media speculation linking us with every player under the sun with a pinch of salt. They are mostly guess work because we have money to spend.

Secondly, I believe behind the scenes we are constantly working hard to make deals happen. However, we want to sign high profile players yet don't have nothing to attract them as such. We have no sort of European football to offer which all these top players want and we are a team who have been poor for the last two seasons. Add to this we don't pay stupid wages.

Seen on so many forums like this evertonians saying this is the best squad we have had and Martinez is ruining it and how with our squad we should be pushing top four. Even pundits were saying the same. So how come all of a sudden we need this massive overhaul of the squad? Up to now the only players we have lost are players past their best who rarely featured in the first team. Yes they need replacing, but with the right sort of player.

Then you have to consider we don't know if we will keep hold of Stones and Lukaku. So we could go out spend money in other areas and they leave meaning we have to strength there as well. Add to that the FFP rules we need to adhere to.

We all got what we wanted, Martinez gone and a quality manager in. Add to that we have a great back room staff put in place and quite a few promising youngsters coming through.

Yes we need to add to the squad, but not just go throwing money around because we now have some. Look at Niasse we are going to take a big loss on him. Plus of the players other teams have signed how many of them would we really want at Everton and for the money they went for.

Let's trust in Koeman to get the players he wants and we need to get us back were we should be. Let's go into the new season in a positive mood. Let's remember signing new players isn't a simple as it is on FIFA!

5.) 26 Jul 2016 18:17:32
Wallace 1878 I agree with what you say but think we need 2 centre backs. Martins indi and koubilay will do nicely.

6.) 26 Jul 2016 18:51:03
Last season 'we've got the strongest squad in years it's the managers fault we need a new manager to get the best out of them'

Preseason 'we need a new squad because we have some money'

£100 mil is great but not enough to change a squad, a new manager needs to asses the squad ie delafou playing upfront. Youth players that are now good enough and to be assessed.

We could do a Leeds, Newcastle etc spend spend spend with nothing to show for it or we could buy the right players at the right price that will improve or rush and end up as the aforementioned know what I'd choose.

7.) 26 Jul 2016 23:31:31
Yes but we are not even sp never mind spend 😂.



25 Jul 2016 23:01:58
Think it says Marko Arnautovic is coming to Everton tomorrow!


Howie bluenose

1.) 25 Jul 2016 23:32:34
There you go Howie. Marko Arnautovic should be immediately in front of a shift from Stoke City to Everton. According to "crown" the 27-year-old has already signed a four-year contract on Tuesday the transfer is to be officially confirmed. Made possible the transfer a release clause of around 15 million euros in the Treaty of Arnautovic. The Viennese could be a replacement for striker Romelu Lukaku, who is about to finish.

The traditional club of Liverpool ended last season in eleventh place, two places behind Stoke. But Everton wants sporty improve in the coming season and is ready for it to dig deep into their pockets. Besides Arnautovic also the Belgian Axel Witsel from Zenit St. Persburg to come for rumored € 30 million to the "Toffees".

2.) 26 Jul 2016 07:13:19
I love that. the traditional club of Liverpool. Even the Austrians know there history, unlike the deluded reds😀.

3.) 26 Jul 2016 09:18:27
Daily mail says that arnautovic is wanting 80 thousand a week and says that we are reluctant to meet his demands they also say that the 12.5 million clause in his contract expires at the end of the month how come do we always wait till the last minutes to try to rush through deals.



09 Feb 2016 16:22:01
Not sure this takeover is about to happen soon, maybe in a few weeks time. The way RM put it he was surprised that there was so much come out now, like its nowhere near. Going on about if or if not a takeover be sure Bill is the man to sort it either to the betterment of EFC or for it to be him still there, Bill is the best man for EFC!
Doesnt sound like soon to me.

Howie bluenose

{Ed025's Note - no one is sure of the time frame howie, there are still lots of issues to sort out in the process and once the legal teams get together it will probably take longer than people expect, but you never know with these things one party may just decide to walk away..its happened before mate..

1.) 09 Feb 2016 20:37:34
Just as soon as I think RM is starting to get it he comes out with gumpf. Kenwright does not get the credit he deserves says Martinez. Well Roberto WTF do you know, Everton are like a Village, newcomers have to earn respect and after just 3 games of finally 'getting it' on the football front there is still a long way to go.



18 Jan 2016 17:10:07
Hahahaha strange that a deal that has just been done at 14.51, and the lad has been training with Leeds today!

Howie bluenose

1.) 18 Jan 2016 17:12:08

just burst out laughing then, am giving him benefit of the doubt though bud.

5.) 18 Jan 2016 18:17:34
And what time do players train howie, in the morning. So yes he trained with Leeds this morning and deal was complete this afternoon.

{Ed025's Note - apparently west ham have come in for him now HB..

6.) 18 Jan 2016 18:25:09
Not sure about that ed, could be just paper talk. Was told from a friend who has been pretty good down the years that it's been completed.

{Ed025's Note - it may have been agreed HB but there is nothing stopping low life clubs like west ham nicking our players before the final signature mate, their scouts must be in the boozer all day because the cant seem to scout their own players..

7.) 18 Jan 2016 18:59:02
For crying out loud! Do our fans really think that we're the only club to scout players? Byram - and pretty much every other player around the world - will have been regularly scouted (to one degree or another) by every premier league club and/ or touted by agents, etc. All that appears to have happened with Byram is that we've had an offer accepted and other clubs (specifically West Ham) are putting in their own competing offer. In the transfer market that's surely how business works! The idea that other clubs wait to see who we've looked at before learning about certain players is utterly preposterous.

Look, it is what they call the silly season, and this Vardy rumour is as silly as it gets. 1. Leicester wouldn't let him go 2. why would he leave a team that is better than us at present and won the Prem season b4 last. Where these rumours start from is beyond me and worse still people buy into it. Listen if it does come true, I'll never doubt a rumour or Newspaper ever again hahahaha Bonkers!

Howie bluenose

1.) 18 Jan 2018 20:37:53
So why would on earth would anybody leave liecester for everton? Mate no, just no :/ probably the worst post I've ever seen.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 21:02:01
You're starting to sound like me Blue-tit.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 21:16:10
hahahahaha, good shout but alas. like you i think we are the big club. However sadly, where is he more likely to play in Europe right now, would he get a game with us in WC Year with a front 4 already of Bolasie, Tosun, Walcott n Siggy or Rooney?

4.) 19 Jan 2018 03:24:51
Vardy would walk into Everton's front line. If his competition is Rooney and the headless chicken twins named Walcott and Bolasie, Vardy would bet his wife he would start every game for Everton.

5.) 19 Jan 2018 06:56:40
im guessing Buzzer is another Leicster fan who believes since they won the league and 1 place and 4 points ahead of us they are a bigger club funny how that forget they were in a championship a few seasons back it's a shame how their fans have gone as I used to like Leicster but they are becoming deluded as kopites as for Vardy he isn't coming we have just spent 27 million on Tosun.

{Ed025's Note - buzzer is a liverpool fan bluey,...enough said..

6.) 19 Jan 2018 14:42:59
I think he's probably right though. the Bolasie and Walcot thing isn't valid but Vardy is better than our strikers. It's just a fact.



17 Jan 2018 14:14:59
Feel gutted about Sandro, for wahtever reason, Koeman sucked the life out of him, n now Sam is doing the same. Last Summer he was the one player i wanted, he had all the things we've not had at EFC for ages as a Striker, Skill, Control, Football brain and goals. I just seriously can't believe he's just lost all that but at 22/ 23 maybe the move was too much for him and the learning curve for the Prem to big. However i do feel he would if we kept him become what he was, he just needs time and nurturing in the ways of the Prem. At £6m its not a loss to wait for him to transform, he is believe me a fantastic footballer.

Howie bluenose

1.) 17 Jan 2018 15:31:40
All is not lost Howie, just look at where Niasse was 6 months ago. Things quickly change in football so fingers crossed.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 18:38:18
very true.



17 Jan 2018 13:29:34
Really need to stop mentioning Garbutt. Yes he'd be better than Martina but we need a long term experienced left back. Sorry but Garbutt not the answer, he went out on loan to Fulham to gain experience n failed miserably by all accounts, been in u-23 since n not registered for 1st team. He is 24 and quite frankly is still inexperienced. We need a proper exp Prem left back or Euro exp left back as Baines sadly (im a fan ) has had his day, struggled last 2 Seasons really.

Howie bluenose



10 Jan 2018 19:35:20
Left back is priority for me. Not back up either because Baines has not been Baines since Season after Peanut left. The guy i think could make it seemless is Chilwell of Leicester. Not only looks like Baines, runs like him, moves forward like him, crosses well but is possibly a better defender than Baines ever was?! No brainer, big fee maybe but we need a ready made laeft back not potebtial.

Howie bluenose

1.) 10 Jan 2018 19:57:03
At last someone who agrees with me that Baines isn't as good as he used to be. Don't misunderstand I've loved the guy since day one and there's been little better than seeing him bombing down the wing and whipping an inch perfect cross into the box, never mind his penalty record, but those days are few and far between. Age catches up to us all eventually.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 20:13:47
Its a fact, he really struggles in some games, even his crossing has been substandard of late. I began worrying when he was easily bullied out of taking Peno's by Lukaku and Mirallas, Arteta used to at Free Kicks too but at least he was good then. My only worry is we get a potential player as back up instead of a 1st team regular left back. Garbutt was potential but failed miserably on loan and his confidence is rock bottom, lack of experience too for over 23!

3.) 10 Jan 2018 21:13:15
Let’s not forget a lot were saying get rid of Jags and he did fine in the cup game, it could be Baines has been playing through the pain barrier and it caught up with him, I would not write Baines off just yet, but we need to get long term replacement when that time arrives.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 11:50:12
The difficulty Baines has had in reaching all his previous performances is that we’ve never replaced Pienaar. Every player that has been given the left wing role has been right footed and always turned inwards and changed the direction of the attack across the pitch leaving Baines to halt his run and when it does come back to him it’s delayef and the impetus of his run is lost. Same thing happened when he played for England how many times was he stood out on the wing watching the game going down the right as soon as it crossed the halfway line.
If we play a left sided winger that Baines can link up with then you will see the best of him.
Big C p.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 15:59:38
Big C You are 100% right. We played a system which involved Pienaar and Baines one side and Osman and Coleman the other. Both wingers and full backs had the ability to bomb forwards. Both wingers and full backs had the ability to shoot and score from distance. Both "wingers" had the ability to hold the ball up and play a one two with the full back overlapping. It gave us so many options going forwards and it gave us goals. It allowed us to play forwards balls out of defence quickly and allowed us to break out in numbers rather than hoofing it to Calvert-Lewin and hoping he could hold it up. Many people were critical of Pienaar and Osman and maybe with some justification as they both slowed up and were not as effective in their later years. but we still have replaced neither. And now we need to replace Coleman and Baines. very soon. Bolasie is probably our best but his goal and assist return is woeful in comparisson to the others.



31 Jan 2017 21:34:50
Wow this window. With everything considered and loans etc it will be 3 IN 14/15 OUT McLeny and Kone the 14/15th

Howie bluenose

1.) 31 Jan 2017 22:18:26
Great business done early! Wow what a clear out! Deadline day another damp squib yet again even sky can't make it interesting, thank god for football fixtures tonight!
No top clubs in the market yet again, I think we should feel positive for the rest of the season!

2.) 31 Jan 2017 22:42:25
Sort of agree but still feel we needed a strong proven Striker to compete with Rom and cover him for the rest of the Season if we really are going for a Euro spot

3.) 31 Jan 2017 23:03:52
I watched the u23 last night. Koeman was at the game Donkor is so big strong great feet he isn't your normal 17 year old. I wouldn't be suprised if koeman thought if we so get an injury he's a decent gamble Save the cash. I agree another proven striker would have been sweet. We will be all right.

4.) 01 Feb 2017 15:59:31
This Donker sounds very exiting.

To even mention Strootman is madness, he'ss seen as much football as Darren Gibson, Nasri fat, seriously wonder if anyone looks up these players or just picks them out of Panini sticker book.

He didn't have a great time with Fulham, their fans were quite scathing of him at one time. He's had bad injuries too, sometimes wonder how well they come back after, it might be a confidence thing.

Just been said on Sky that no formal offer was issued as Leicester wanted a £95M deal involving a player aswell! Seriously know we wouldn't go looking for that kind of package as City have decided. Leicester are delusional and now have a disgruntled player plus apparently angry team mates unhappy he didn't turn up for training yesterday or today!

Tom Davies for me all day. Yes not as good as last Season which is to be expected of a young un 2nd Season n all that. However what he's done to not warrant a place in the team baffles me. Whether he's having a great game or not and against teams that are also struggling he's needed even more he still has a presence, looks for the ball, high energy and only thinks of moving the ball forward!

Burying your head in the sand and not aknowledging what your watching is beyond me. Its staring you in the face, from what he says about need to be boring again, to need to not concede goals, to playing players who haven had one good game this Season, to serving up 2/ 3 defensive mids at home against lower opposition who supposedly should have less confidence than we have, playing 2 wingers yesterday who are both right sided?! talk about trying to cover the left side! Bolasie not fit so Lookman should have played as a leftie. Really its not Rocket science, to defend him by saying give him time, seriously the man is clueless and nothing he says or does tells you anything else. Wake up, Sam is a very bad error on this great Clubs part! Ohh by the way yes i'm furious!

I thought not a while ago, but as Sam has proved clueless as to what to do with half decent players I've changed my mind. i'm certain Silva would have done a lot better ( organising a creative midfield, with the opportunity of shots on goal ) especially as he'd have had the money Sam has had at his disposal which Silva didn't at Watford. What were watching at Everton at present under Sam is nothing short of dreadful. Awful defending, clueless slow defensive and uncreative midfield and an attack wondering when the next chance will come along. Sorry, but whatever he may have done in his first 4 games has been sucked out of the team now, never seen such a nervy, low on confidence team at Goodison and we were playing WBA! Unbelievable!
