Paul Joyce all but confirms that SA will be off, probably to be replaced by Silva. Fonseca would have been nice but he could sign an extension at Shakhtar. With Brands expected to be announced soon too, hopefully steps in the right direction!

fonseca looking like west ham Hugo.

2.) 15 May 2018 15:47:16
Im not so sure, mate!

3.) 15 May 2018 19:11:24
I know we’re not in the best of shape, but if Everton and West Ham have both made approaches then I cannot understand why you’d choose that circus. The owners are useless, the stadium is ridiculous and the CEO wants people to watch her TV show over her football team.

4.) 15 May 2018 19:32:05
Big Sam to west ham.

{Ed025's Note - wham bam thank you mam..

Linked with the FC Porto manager by The Times.


1.) 09 May 2018 17:49:24
6 clubs since 2012.

2.) 09 May 2018 18:12:53
Seams to be a recurring theme with Portuguese managers.

3.) 09 May 2018 21:31:35
As long as we have a strategy under a long-term DoF, then imho a head-coach coming in for just a few years might not be too bad.
However, I’d prefer the pairing (DoF alongside head-coach) to be give 3-to-5 years to get things right. I just hope that we (the pans) have the patience for that timeframe.



22 Apr 2018 09:57:24
Daily Mirror reporting that Brands is set to be appointed. Unsure if true or not.


1.) 22 Apr 2018 10:18:02
Hope so mate.

2.) 22 Apr 2018 10:42:56
just seen that myself hope it's true maybe Walsh could learn a thing or two as he has struggled massively as DOF or maybe Walsh will leave as can't see him wanting to become chief scout.

3.) 22 Apr 2018 11:21:49
I hope it's true also but I will believe it when the deal is signed and sealed this stupid survey doesn't help hope it doesn't put brands or any manager off joint us can't stand another year of big sam.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 13:50:19
Not sure I’d ever want any manager or employee that would be so thin skinned as to get upset by a fans survey. but club needs root and branch change. Tim Cahill spot on, need an identity back.



08 Jan 2018 16:43:21
Any interest remaining for Dendoncker?


{Ed002's Note - Leander Dendoncker remains of interest to several sides, but not Everton right now.}

1.) 08 Jan 2018 17:04:51
Shame. Looks a player.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 18:23:52
I agree Hugo, I quite like him.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 19:48:45
As it happens. Unless Schneiderlin, McCarthy et al get sold. We don’t need Dedoncker, as good as he is, he is a very static footballer. We need speed, agility and power in the middle. More of an athlete footballer.



21 Dec 2017 16:27:02
Mirallas wants out. Galatasaray and Olympiakos want him, by Kristof Terreur.


1.) 21 Dec 2017 19:25:10
Then let him go.

2.) 21 Dec 2017 21:04:49
With you there Woburn mate, far too iffy for me, blows hot sometimes but blows cold far too often.

3.) 21 Dec 2017 22:37:07
I feel like Mirallas has been with us 2 season too long but he never seems to leave.

4.) 22 Dec 2017 11:29:22
I think he never got the moves he wanted, he was high on thinking he would have interest from the likes of Utd, Juventus and PSG but it’s never come for various reasons. Love Kev but think it’s gone on too long now.

5.) 22 Dec 2017 12:45:31
is he still with us. i felt that he went 2 seasons ago :) :)

6.) 23 Dec 2017 10:53:14
Im fond of him, but i feel he has stayed too long for him and the club. Good player but not for us at this point in time.

Thinking of Hull's relegation under Silva is the same as thinking that Allardyce's time at Everton was a success, for me. Neither exist in a vacuum: On paper, SA finishing 8th and getting results is a positive, but we all know how dire the football was, and his off-field comments were arrogant and condescending towards both fan and player. Hull's relegation under Silva can't be forgotten, but take in to account how close he got to saving them, the negativity that surrounded the club, players available and I think he did as good a job as he could.

For me, Silva's eventual appointment will be exciting, with a justified degree of caution; that, teamed with Moshiri's ambition, Brands' know-howand lessons learnt from last Summer, will be great!


1.) 18 May 2018 15:09:04
I agree with you Hugofc. He came very close to saving Hull and certainly got the best out of Niasse who scored goals for them. Watford were playing good football and I believe 5th in the league when we became interested. The rest we know is history. I strongly believe he will surprise a lot of people.

2.) 18 May 2018 20:36:46
What he did at Hull was near on amazing.
Yeah the still went down but his results were incredible. The goals for was very good but unfortunately he ran out of games. Appointed too late. Only a fool could give him a hard time their.

Watford again for me were a club I picked for the drop. until I saw they got Silva. They had a pretty great start too. And he was clearly the next big thing all of a sudden.

Yes we approached and it's obvious it wasn't a welcome approach and maybe just maybe we will (deservedly? ) Be in hot water for it? But i bet a few others had a sniff too.

Who knows if he will be a major success? So long as he reinvents our status in football cos it's dire at the minute. Ex pros calling us arrogant for getting shot of a man who got us from trouble to 8th. It looks an easy argument. And in some respects maybe some have gone too far but we all saw it coming.

The new guy deserves support and patience.
We also have to remember that it's not all on the manager these days. FM BK and DOF are all responsible. Certainly for everything off the pitch.

3.) 18 May 2018 21:54:40
Myteam, a fool! He won 7 lost 10. At 36 percent ratio no where near saving Hull. Look at Watford 30 percent. Those are the facts in the English Premier League. Our league is rightly described as the toughest in the World, surely our Managerial standards should be the same. Silva Sporting Lisbon something like 53 percent, what does that tell you compared with above.

4.) 18 May 2018 23:55:45
Funnily enough, he nearly saved Hull whilst playing attractive football. Who knew both things could coexist.



28 Apr 2018 21:54:16
Great to see Besic doing well at 'Boro and enjoying his football again.


1.) 28 Apr 2018 22:46:06
I'm made up for him. He speaks so enthusiastically about the club and our fans. I hope he comes back and plays a part with us again.

2.) 28 Apr 2018 23:16:21
Always liked Besic shame it hasn't worked out for us he needs to be playing football and just glad he's enjoying it even getting on scoresheet.



25 Apr 2018 18:07:34
This has little to do with Everton, or right now at least, but I've seen Arteta's name banded around for the Arsenal and Everton manager's job. Just interested if one of the Ed's knew why? Because he's had little experience as a manager but there has to be something there for his name to be mentioned. Must be quite the coach!


{Ed001's Note - because he is seen as being highly influential at Man City.}

1.) 26 Apr 2018 00:30:46
I think Arteta would be great if working alongside someone like Brands.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 22:29:59
Do you reckon he's good enough to manage right now maybe for us ed?

{Ed001's Note - not to manage, but as a head coach I don't see why not. Really depends on getting the right DoF above him then.}



28 Mar 2018 20:07:31
Who's signing off on our compensation packages when a manager's sacked? Last 2 have been horrendous by the sounds of it! Big Sam's going to walk off with a lifetimes supply of gravy and £20 mill!




03 Mar 2018 16:07:54
We will be in the Prem next season because there are 3 worse teams than us. Nothing more. We are terrible and Big Sam is a terrible, arrogant manager who looks to shift the blame every chance.


1.) 03 Mar 2018 16:31:14
if you look at a form league table over the last 10 games there is only one team worse than us! now that is worrying.

Not sure how you can still think that SA will be retained after this season, Ed. I know it's not confirmed but the writing's on the wall, no?


{Ed025's Note - it may well be hugo but some within the club seem to be happy with the progress under sam, obviously moshiri will make the final decision but nothing is stet in stone yet mate..

I think bigger clubs will be after him, or stay at Hoffenheim for the CL. Great manager though!
