ANy hold-ups with the Sandro deal or just because he's away?


1.) 19 Jun 2017 17:40:55
Mail on line saying its a done deal?



14 Jun 2017 11:16:18
Everton have sent a delegation to Milan for some reason. Any idea why?


1.) 14 Jun 2017 11:40:32
Probably to do with Geri.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 11:46:00
Niang and Benega have been mentioned.

3.) 14 Jun 2017 11:59:38
I seen that myself mate but haven't got the slightest idea who interesting no doubt just wait and see I suppose.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 12:01:19
I don't know but could be in Milan for the lad that Eatford loaned Niang?
We have been linked before and appears to be available.

5.) 14 Jun 2017 12:02:41
Or could be to sort out Gerry's permit any move?

6.) 14 Jun 2017 11:46:35
Walsh an co have gone to discuss Lapadula, Niang and possibly Bacca (we need a striker of exp, if we are bringing Sandro in) .

Supposedly going to Inter later to discuss mainly Banega, while also asking for information on Brozovic and Murillo.

7.) 14 Jun 2017 12:17:04
Carlos bacca? Or that columbian CB at inter.

8.) 14 Jun 2017 12:19:06
Why would we send a delegation out just to sell someone. Surely they would come to us if it was about Deulefeu.

9.) 14 Jun 2017 12:38:30
Lapadula and Bacca are 2 other names mentioned as well.

10.) 14 Jun 2017 12:49:35
I agree with toffee, if it was them wanting Geri they should he coming to us unless we're that desperate to offload him.

11.) 14 Jun 2017 12:25:54
being reported Carlos Bacca now that's a new one to be added to the mix any Eds got any inside info on this.

{Ed002's Note - Duvan Zapata is available and has been asked about. Carlos Bacca is available but may be a more difficult target Arsenal would be open to a discussion but their preference is elsewhere. Probably too expensive for Sevilla who are keen and the interest of West Ham will likely be nowhere without European football. Everton watched Bacca and may return. The player was keen to join Atletico Madrid.}

12.) 14 Jun 2017 22:31:38
cheers ED.



13 Jun 2017 13:09:28
Telegraaf reporting that Klaassen is "all but done".




06 Jun 2017 09:57:23
Diego Llorente linked. Young centre-back on loan from Real Madrid to Malaga last season. Bid of £14 mill accepted. Any news?




25 May 2017 21:52:40
Do we have an update on Rooney? Better than what we have but personally, don't want him back. isn't what we need.


{Ed025's Note - im with you hugo, we should be looking forward not back..

1.) 26 May 2017 00:47:05
I know Rooney returning polarizes opinions amongst fans, but is it really such a bad move for us?

As a comparison, Gareth Barry is 36, and yes this season hasn't been stand out but still did a job when needed. His contribution to us since joining has been fantastic in my opinion and he illustrates that an older player is still a huge asset to have if they are good enough to affect a match. Rooney is what 31/ 32? I don't anticipate a vast number of goals from him but i can see the benefits of him being in the team. I've mentioned before the impact he can have on youth development/ mentorship. I think he is still more than capable of hitting double figures for goals, and we need need more goals throughout the team rather than mainly being reliant on a sole striker. As a free kick taker of exceptional talent, this could net a few more points over the course of a season. I see him being more of a midfielder, didn't he say a couple of years back that he sees this role as something that could keep him in the game at the top level for longer? He has good vision, passing and composure, so could open up the game and create more for attackers if used in the role. Another huge benefit has to be his love of the club and this is my big selling point. We just cannot beat Liverpool. I think the Merseyside derbies are 2 games where he will give his absolute all. His desire to help get the win in these matches of course doesn't justify the huge wages, but right now i'd give my arm to get a win over Liverpool after so long.
Also, Koeman is no fool. He seems to really want Rooney to join and i think his knowledge far exceeds any of ours. If he sees the move as beneficial, that it is an improvement, then are we really in a position to disagree?
I think maybe, even if you really don't want him to return, that we should take a more considered approach to comments about him because it's looking like a good possibility he will make the move and fostering a bad attitude towards him won't help anyone. Give him our support and hope he's a success.

2.) 26 May 2017 01:03:51
Going backwards. A player who is 31 a World Cup coming up to prove himself for selection, a player who will not role over and have his belly tickled against a top 4 side, available on a free, I scratch my head in disbelief not wanting a player on a free transfer, nothing to lose and everything to gain, too early to be written off yet, he will have a point to prove which can only be good for Everton.

3.) 26 May 2017 01:51:04
Literally can't get my head round people not wanting one of the greatest players to ever play the game. He has just shy of 200 premier league goals, 101 assists, Manchester Uniteds all time to scorer, Englands all time top scorer. Won everything there is at club level. Not to mention he is on a free.

Anyone who wants to argue against that, when we have the likes of Kone, Valencia, DCL on our bench, then you need to have a word with yourself.

Yes he left us, but he left us as he had ambition to win trophies an work with the biggest club in football with the biggest manager. And he went and bossed.

Now he can come back an spend his latter years getting the club who he still supports and takes his kids to the game (brings them up as blues) into the higher echelons of the league.

Not even up for discussion for me.

4.) 26 May 2017 06:20:00
With you on that jmw.

5.) 26 May 2017 08:18:42
Would sign him tomorrow brill, GuernseyBlue.

6.) 26 May 2017 08:45:32
People are writing him off because he isn't getting a game a united which is absolutely ridiculous were in Europe and he has thirteen years experience in that so I think he would be the best signing for each for many years.

7.) 26 May 2017 08:59:20
Totally agree with above posts. Bring him back.

8.) 26 May 2017 09:52:06
Put it this way gents, if he bags the winner in the 90th minute at their rubbish shed, kop end next season and runs full length of the pitch into our fans . all will be forgiven haha!

9.) 26 May 2017 10:47:30
I would welcome him back with open arms
He still has a heck of a lot he can offer a team, and the price ain't bad :-)

10.) 26 May 2017 11:25:52
Yes please. I'd have him all day long. Just imagine his joy at getting his first goal in a blue shirt again.

11.) 26 May 2017 12:01:54
Age gives you experience, he's won a lot and knows how to do it, who have we in the squad who can offer that, Barry when at city, now 31 isn't old look at some of the great players still going in there 30s. problem with Rooney is he isn't a striker and he isn't a midfielder, he's a Barkley, now are you telling me he wouldn't add more than 4 goals over a season and create more assists, he will bring composure and know how, money shouldn't be a stumbling block and we should want players like this in our squad, other players will see what we are doing and the calibre of players we have and will then want to join us, city when they first started bought at stupid prices and payed silly wages just to get the players threw the door, now they have become successful and can get any player and and any manager they want, we need realise all the best players won't just come to us unless we can offer something exciting, yes it's coming but we need build to get there.

12.) 26 May 2017 18:01:35
Rooney would be a good stepping stone for us for the next few years and as I said in a previous post. The lad scored 15 goals Last season in a pretty poor man who side. When we sell lukaku we will be begging for a player who can get us 10-15 goals a season so to get one who isn't an out and out striker like Rooney will do very nicely.

13.) 27 May 2017 09:18:12
I think it's obvious Rooney isn't match fit. A good pre season and a run of 4 or 5 games and you'll see a different player to what we've seen recently. He hasn't had a decent run in there team for months now, but when he did (before Christmas) he still looked an influential player for them.

14.) 28 May 2017 16:39:51
Bazwil212 what makes you think he is going on a free?

Ive said this before, he has 2 or so years on his contract left, do you really think united will say 'hey roo here's 25+ mil, thanks and goodbye'. They will want at least what is negotiated as a severance package for ending his contract early.

So there is anything upto 25+ mil straight away, then all other fees etc, and the 3 year 150k a week, so around 22.5+ mil for the 3 years, that's 47.5+ mil for a player that's not looking like he can cope any more with the pace of the prem. And let's remember that there will be no return on that as he will prob retire on the treatment bench.

Don't know where people get the free from, I personally don't think investing that amount in Rooney at this time in his career is worth it.

Hi Eds. Posted a ratings after the game yesterday but didn't go up. Any reason why? Thanks in advance.


{Ed025's Note - im not sure hugo as i was at a wedding all day yesterday mate..

1.) 29 Jul 2017 14:13:19
HugoEFC its in the 'other pages' section.

2.) 29 Jul 2017 14:25:51
I think it went under the other posts section bud.

3.) 29 Jul 2017 18:41:04
Cheers, boys!



20 Jul 2017 09:44:30
Thought Besic did well at CB yesterday. Still hope he sticks around.


1.) 20 Jul 2017 10:24:54
He has such a nice touch and glides over the pitch. It's his injuries that stop him from being a top player. Only 24 though. You never know.



16 Jul 2017 08:22:42
Who's everyone's favourite signing so far?


{Ed025's Note - sandro for me hugo..

1.) 16 Jul 2017 08:49:03
Same here, Ed. Think that one's a real coup.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 09:09:10
Wazza for me Hugo cheers mate, GuernseyBlue.

3.) 16 Jul 2017 09:09:44
Klaasen for me. If he adapts well to the league I think he could be a star.

4.) 16 Jul 2017 10:27:41
Sandro but I think we are getting a mega star in Onyekuru when he returns next year.

5.) 16 Jul 2017 11:00:19
Keane for me I do love a flair player but am a defender at heart and think he is solid.

6.) 16 Jul 2017 11:21:05
Pickford for me, can't wait to see how well he does playing behind a better defense and his distribution is a good asset for counter attacks.

7.) 16 Jul 2017 11:39:16
Mr Moshiri closely followed by Koeman

player wise can't wait to see Sandro in full flow.

{Ed025's Note - good shout that degs..



04 Jul 2017 10:34:19
Think i'm in the minority who don't want Rooney back. Bar the fact that he might be an influence for some of the younger players, i'm not sure what he offers going forward on the pitch. Resources could be used for someone younger with more drive.


{Ed025's Note - i dont know about the minority hugo..

1.) 04 Jul 2017 10:43:39
I'd rather look at Dembele, Willian Jose, Lucas Perez, Bas Dost, Dolberg, Teodorczyk - all offer more than Rooney for me.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 10:59:07
Dembele n dolberg only 2 ahead of Rooney in that list for me Giroud I'm hoping for e. The influence on and off the field Rooney would bring would be unreal I believe. And a true leader

Anyway I trust whoever we bring in

Everton the gear.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 11:18:30
Most of the posts I've seen on here/ twitter welcome the idea of him coming back!

{Ed025's Note - its a marmite thing hugo and my findings it looks 50/50 mate..



29 Jun 2017 18:49:17
Hi Ed, bit confused about something regarding Work Permits:

So Onyekuru will be going on loan to Anderlecht next season because we can't get a work permit. What will be different next Summer? Would he be guaranteed one?


{Ed025's Note - not guaranteed one hugo, but if he played for a significant time and maybe got an international call up then things like that help mate..

1.) 29 Jun 2017 19:41:17
Will playing CL/ EL help too?

{Ed025's Note - yes hugo, it all adds up mate..

2.) 29 Jun 2017 19:36:24
How does it work with footballers. Having lived and worked outside EU I know that it comes down to whether a suitably qualified person in he home country is available and wants the job. only then can the hiring company recruit from outside their 'home territory' however football is a little more subjective. regarding the suitably qualified person. n that note does it purely come down to other qualifications, i. e. number of intl caps? Given Belgium is in EU and he plays in Belgium, do you know how their permit rules differ to ours. given we are still an EU member?

{Ed002's Note - The permit rules are much stricter .}

3.) 29 Jun 2017 20:17:15
Great! Thanks Ed! Really excited about the signing of Onyekuru.

{Ed025's Note - i have to admit i never seen that one coming hugo, but its great to see up and coming players like him picking us over the so called bigger boys mate..

4.) 29 Jun 2017 20:51:31
Im guessing itll get much stricter once we are out of the EU too?

{Ed025's Note - thats certainly a factor hugo..

5.) 29 Jun 2017 20:55:58
Cheers ed.

6.) 29 Jun 2017 21:17:34
Much appreciated, Ed. Thank you.
