We all know the club need to bring in an experienced striker, but with the departure of Jagielka and possible Zouma staying at Chelsea don't we also need to look for experienced CB to come in.
Does anyone know what the situation is with Holgate. Is he staying at WBA or returning?


1.) 12 Jul 2019 10:46:47
As far as I know he has returned. Obviously things can change but I have not heard anything about him going back. Personally I think it would be a bad move, for him, going back and continuing to play right back.

Even if he does come back I'd still say that leaves us one short. Keane and Mina to start with Holgate as back up doesn't leave much space for injuries, unless we promote from the U23s.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 10:51:21
Holgate is back at everton now.

3.) 12 Jul 2019 12:58:17
It will be interesting to see how Gibson does in the remaining pre season games. For me he’s good enough and ready for a place in the squad but only time will tell.

You also can’t forget we also paid 6mill for him a few years ago so he’s obviously highly rated.

4.) 12 Jul 2019 13:19:46
Just read that Dowel is out on season long loan as well now so it is a priority.

5.) 12 Jul 2019 14:04:55
Dowell plays in midfield!

6.) 12 Jul 2019 18:27:30
Not totally sure how reliable their data is but according to transfermarkt we paid £990k for Lewis Gibson but the fee could rise to £6m.

7.) 12 Jul 2019 20:19:04
Holgate is back with us and played in the friendly in Kenya and wasn't that impressive at centre back Lewis Gibson also played as centre back in game and look really good calm on the ball made a few mistakes but at 18 looks like a very promising prospect.



12 May 2019 09:57:54
I see on the bbc sport web site, gossip link that Everton and Spurs considering a swop deal with Digne and Rose. Origin from the Star. If to be believed surely a backward step considering Digne fine performances this year. If true Spurs must see Digne as better fullback than Rose. If the club are genuinely wanting to get to top 4 then you surely keep your best players. Also consider Rose is the older of the two.

When speculation is around considering other players this summer, then the club have a lot of hard work to do either to keep them at the club or find equal replacements.


{Ed002's Note - Spurs would certainly be open to using Kieran Trippier, who is of interest to Everton in a deal.}

1.) 12 May 2019 10:16:04
It’s extremely unlikely that Everton would consider losing Digne this summer. He looks like he’s enjoying his football and clearly has a very high value at the club. Would Spurs ever be in a position to be able to tempt Everton into selling this early into his current deal? Doubt it.

2.) 12 May 2019 12:53:55
Idle gossip mate as usual, best left to Marco and Marcel as to who comes in and goes out.

3.) 12 May 2019 12:54:56
Ed are we actually thinking of letting dinge go?

{Ed002's Note - I am sure Everton will want to keep Digne but there is interest in him from Spurs (although not their first choice) and he will want to be playing European football.}

4.) 12 May 2019 13:44:32
If he did go we would looking at a very good profit and he may will as in your list of players we have looked at it had a left back which you pointed out Ed. So maybe we are considering it. I am unsure about tripper he had a good World Cup but I’ve never thought but him to repack Coleman.

5.) 12 May 2019 14:08:48
Silly season starts early this year.

6.) 12 May 2019 16:45:26
I'd be happy with that. Spurs give is 50 million and trippier.

7.) 12 May 2019 17:23:31
I think we going to have to get used to this all summer with media linking digne, richarlinson, gueye and Bernard with moves but me personally I think only gueye could leave I just don't see the club allowing the rest to go. As for the story from the star come on who in the right mind came up with that one a swap for digne and rose seriously rose has to be one of the most overrated players in premier league and why swap a 25 year old in digne for someone close to 29 just just seems to go against everything Marco and brands have been saying about building a new young team. Let's just hope we manage to get gomez and zouma on a permanant deals.

8.) 12 May 2019 22:49:51
Agreed David, Digne won’t be sold IMO.
Gueye has served the club well and I wouldn’t begrudge him a crack at the Champions League. Rather he stayed of course. Richarlison is a trickier one. If we got a crazy offer from a top, top team, wouldn’t surprise me if he made a fuss and forced a move. Hope I’m wrong.

9.) 13 May 2019 14:25:57
Swap deals don't really happen. Rose has been linked with us for ages no so does just seem like lazy journalism putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5. I have no doubt that Spurs are intetested, however I am confident that we will not let him go next season. Everton are nightmares to buy players off usually. I think Gueye will go. I think we will expect a second season from Digne it after next season if h3 co tunes the way he is, I thi k he will go then. There's too much t9 d9 to the squad and he on my signed a year go and seems happy.

10.) 13 May 2019 22:33:19
No thanks need keep him. Tripper no better then coleman and by far spurs weakest link.

11.) 14 May 2019 18:56:28
Hope this is paper talk likes of digne Bernard richalerson we should be building our team around digne been brill for us can’t see y we would want let him go I know prob media talk as per usual selling one of our best players come on if we do it would be a stupid mistake trippier had brill World Cup and I do rate him can’t see y he’s been pushed out first team at spurs as for rose don’t rate his m he ain’t good enough to lace dignes boots never mind take his place lol.

Unless there is a big improvement in performance, results etc I think Everton could find the top 8 this season out of there reach. No games are easy in the Premiership but where 3 points should be picked up they are not.
Some need a kick up the backside whether they on the pitch or coaching to get those results.
They need reminding that those fans who support them and travel hundreds of miles to away games are not on £100,000 a week.


1.) 16 Sep 2019 15:47:25
I have allwats believed from day 1 that we wold not finish any higher than 8th more likely lower.

2.) 16 Sep 2019 16:37:23
If you dare criticise on here, then you get lambasted as not a proper supporter. To be fair, I doubt very much that yourself, DC and others that voice dissatisfaction on here are the same ones that boo and curse their own Team and Staff at live games. For myself Silva had his Season 8th, this it is not looking good, I have no idea how long he will be given but if this pattern continues then Christmas will be to late. To see Silva sulking on the bench wasn't depressing, it was deplorable.

3.) 17 Sep 2019 00:07:34
I’d sooner call the performance by the players deplorable. We have all seen some excellent performances by our team under Silva, and some awful ones too. But there wasn’t a single player that I saw who didn’t make a mistake or two. Some too many. The manager can’t be blamed for all the mistakes but I understand why not everyone is convinced by him.

It’s still early and there is actually only one team carrying last seasons form into this one. That should tell us plenty. Not having a go at you guys for not liking Silva, I’d just rather look at the whole picture than drill down on the manager.

4.) 17 Sep 2019 08:05:49
To be fair to you Toffee my response/ reply to your post (and having read it back) was a little over the top (too impassioned) . Like others I love this Club, it is just so frustrating that (it seems to me anyway) , we just season after season do not appear to do anything about lessons learned. I agree, that continually changing Manager is not the way to go about it but surely to God, the way to correct that - after so many goes - is to do your due dilligence.

5.) 17 Sep 2019 10:35:36
Bill the trouble with this site (no offence Ed001) is that we respond to a post then scroll down and read another then feel bad about the one just posted. Mate we want the same thing as does the coach. Whether he can deliver only time will tell (not too much time though 😉)

{Ed001's Note - I am not offended. Nothing is perfect and we know the sites have their flaws like any other.}



22 Aug 2019 09:15:24
Just read a nice article on the BBC sports web page relating to Everton FC and their transfer dealings for Keen and others. Everyone should be proud to be associated with EFC in whatever capacity.


1.) 22 Aug 2019 10:36:36
Good read very promising as word is slowly getting out Everton are arriving to stay.

2.) 22 Aug 2019 11:41:51
Makes a change considering we didn't exist to the media during the summer.



01 Apr 2019 20:19:28
Just seen it posted on BBC Sport news on line that the club are investigating an alleged street fracas involving Jordan Pickford. No other details.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 21:09:05
Nothing to investigate as the footage clearly shows it’s him.

But you can’t forget that whilst he’s a footballer he’s also a young lad and had obviously been drinking, also other clips show Newcastle fans giving him abuse all night so he obviously snapped.

But on the other hand he’s England’s no1 and should know better and not to put himself in them kind off situations to begin with.

To me it seems like a few idiots where antagonising him to purposely get a reaction on camera and unfortunately succeeded.

He needs to learn from this with his arrogance and immaturity that he’s show on/ off the pitch.

2.) 01 Apr 2019 21:45:40
Agree with your comments. He’s got to learn.

3.) 01 Apr 2019 21:47:23
The way he tries to punch clear when balls come into the box, don’t think anyone’s got anything to worry about.

4.) 02 Apr 2019 02:29:06
Evidently some idiot had some comments about his partner who was with him so not sure if it was not justified and anyway was evidently over in ten seconds.



16 Feb 2019 09:59:03
With Phil Jagielka playing days seemingly at an end at this level anyway, would it not be a good plan to get him onto the coaching staff. I think there is the making of a good manager in there for the future.


1.) 16 Feb 2019 11:05:50
I agree Keen17, get his badges then I would like him to remain in UK and do a Gerrard (not slighting) , go up to Scotland get experience and relative success for a couple of seasons, Hearts or Aberdeen maybe.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 13:09:52
To my previous post, I should have added that Everton’s most successful periods have been with ex Everton players as manager, namely Harry Catterick and Howard Kendall. Whether it’s just coincidence or not I don’t know.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 13:51:54
Big Joe did ok for us too, Keen. Can anyone out there shed any light as to why Peter Reid gave up on management? He always seemed to do well wherever he managed. I suppose the way he was treated a couple of times might have put him off, but it would be great for our club if we had someone with his passion, fight, experience &, most of all, knowledge and love of Everton Football Club!



08 Oct 2018 08:34:39
If feel the best time to judge where Everton are is how they've performed when having played against the so called top 6 clubs, both performance wise and result.

As regards the Leicester performance, and something we will never know, is would they have come away with 3 points if Morgan had stayed on the pitch.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 09:34:44
That depends on what your yardstick is Keen17. What I mean by that is. do you mean are we as good as top 6 clubs yet? Do you mean are we getting closer to top 6? Do you mean are we better than the rest? . all I will say is that Everton Football Club were on a slippery slope to the Championship this time last season. We could not muster a single shot on target in 4 games. We looked very fragile and players looked like rabbits with wide eyes looking at a car coming straight at them. Allardyce did what he had to do to stop the rot. This new manager has come in and made some very brave decisions. £40 mill for Richarlison. A player who had lost confidence and not scored in 30 odd games. Bernard on a free. A few others who should add quality to the first team. But most of all Tom Davies as captain at 20 years old. I cannot rate this player any higher. I believe he will be our captain for a very long time and we will add more youth with players like Holgate and Kenny and even Dowell into the 1st team squad. We will get our injured players back and strengthen further with other additions next transfer window. Then and only then will we see if we are top 6 material. If we get into the top 6 it does not matter how we play against them if we pick up max points against other teams. Our performance against Arsenal tells me we have made huge improvements overall in such a short time frame. I for one Evertonian have hope and belief again. I am (as BlueJohnUns says) . enjoying being an Evertonian. We have something to look forwards to. Yes the manager will make mistakes with tactics and other things. Everyone makes mistakes. But he has us playing with purpose. Playing with belief. Playing with some skill and some desire. Playing with youngsters. Playing as Everton should! The school of Science is on its way back!

{Ed002's Note - I would not forget that Richarlison has made it clear that Everton is simply a stopping off point to a bigger club.}

2.) 08 Oct 2018 09:49:54
I think the good thing is Keen is that I am actually looking forward to us testing ourselves against the top 6 versus last season when I was dreading a hiding.

We might still get one but we will be giving it a go and, if we can build on the last 2 league games and grow our confidence we can compete, I honestly believe it, with the very best.

3.) 08 Oct 2018 10:11:58
We will never know - but we will also never know if we'd have got 3 points on the two occasions this season when we've gone down to 10.

4.) 08 Oct 2018 10:45:53
Well Ed002, let us Evertonians hope that Richarlison does indeed give us the headache of having to replace him. He is certainly a top player in my view and draws fouls consistently and yet still manages to score goals and create assists. It is much better that we as a club have that headache just as Liverpool have had that headache having to replace Coutinho and Suarez and others in recent seasons and have managed to do so. I for one do not see him using us as a stepping stone as a problem unless he starts behaving like the guy Pogba at Man Utd who has a terrible attitude from what I can see.

5.) 08 Oct 2018 15:13:21
The problem we had the last time a player used us as a stepping stone was we relied on him so much, it hurt us massively when he left. Hopefully our squad will be built more resiliently in the future with Brands on board than it was when Lukaku left.

6.) 08 Oct 2018 16:30:18
Keen17, not sure if Leicester had not had a man sent off would have drew or won, swings and roundabouts though due to Everton had 2 players sent off when commanding both games earlier in the season and ended up dropping points.

7.) 08 Oct 2018 16:33:30
Thanks for pointing out the stepping stone for Richarlison Ed, happens to a lot of clubs, Suarez, Coutinho, all used smaller clubs as a stepping stone stone, before moving to Spain.

Salah will be their radar as well.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about.}

8.) 08 Oct 2018 17:17:23
Just on that ed. If richarlison does leave for bigger club then we should make handsome profit which can be reinvested in the squad.

{Ed002's Note - With Moshiri providing £200M a window and all of he gifts of h money coming from Ivan Gazidis the massive profit will likely not be of consequence.}

9.) 08 Oct 2018 17:18:52
would not forget that Richarlison has made it clear that Everton is simply a stopping off point to a bigger club. }.

{Ed002's Note - It is a real struggle to understand all of your references to other players bignev (if that is your real name).

10.) 08 Oct 2018 18:35:15
What is hard to understand about references to Coutinho and Suarez joint Barcelona from a stepping stone club, could not be any clearer my posting.

Bignev is fine to use, for your reference for my user name.

{Ed002's Note - Neither player arrived with that in mind.}

11.) 08 Oct 2018 20:00:23
Let’s not forget Suarez saw Liverpool as a stepping stone to play for Arsenal hahaha. Any player in the world find it hard to turn Barcelona or Madrid down. The lads ambitious and that’s what we want in that same interview he talks about wanting to win things at Everton that’l do for me.

12.) 08 Oct 2018 20:10:14
The thing is Ed002, you were having a little dig at us Evertonians about him Richarlison using us as a stepping stone to a bigger club! But when we point out that there are bigger clubs all around you don't like it! I could well see Salah playing for a bigger club like Man City soon. using LFC as a stepping stone of course!

{Ed002's Note - He said it not me. Why embarrass your self with this BS? Why mention a Liverpool player again?}

13.) 08 Oct 2018 20:19:37
Don’t think you have embarrassed yourself at all degsy all you’ve done is make a valid point that everybody else will pretty much agree with I reckon.

{Ed002's Note - Right, it is fine for an Everton player to join and say it is simply a stepping stone but not for me to tell you. Hopeless.}

14.) 08 Oct 2018 20:35:38
He did not actually say that he was asked about Real Madrid and Barcelona. His response was something along the lines of “you have put me in a difficult situation because those clubs are a dream for any player”. He then went on to say “but I
Have just arrived at Everton and right now I am thinking about wanting to be top scorer in the premier league and win trophy’s at Everton”. The point is this would be exactly the same situation for many players. And some have been proven Suarez, bale, coutinho to name a few. I don’t think just because someone called you out on trying to have a dig (which you clearly were) they should be called embarrassing, when quite clearly your acting in an embarrassing way yourself.

{Ed002's Note - Jesus, you must be the most stupid and least knowledgable of the lot. The posts are constantly and repeatedly stupid and embarrassing - you don’t need my help. Moshiri £200M a window’ endless financial gifts from Gazidis; scratching around the internet looking for evidence that Richarlison is not looking at Everton as a stopping off point. And so it goes on and on.}

15.) 08 Oct 2018 21:44:12
Ed002 you mention gifts from Gazidis?
What is the reference to? I thought Gazidis was at Arsenal but is leaving for Milan? Not sure what gifts we would be expecting.

{Ed002's Note - Read the posts - the Everton fans have convinced themselves he will be giving all of the money to them - as you are well aware.}

16.) 08 Oct 2018 21:56:00
I'm confused. Do you mean Usmanov Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Sorry Usmanov. It is all fantasy stuff.}

17.) 08 Oct 2018 22:11:09
Gazidis? Sounded almost stupid and least knowledgeable hehe come on I had to.

18.) 09 Oct 2018 00:41:14
Blimey Ed someone touched a nerve with pointing out Suarez and Coutinho going to a bigger club, god help us if they come sniffing for Salah.

Ok to have a dig at Richarlison as a stepping stone, not so good when the shoe is on the other foot.

Dread to think what will happen if and when Bramley Moore dock comes off.

{Ed002's Note - I still have no idea what this has to do with Liverpool? Or why you would think I would care about the likes of Liverpool players moving. I explained the ignorance of the statement - that was all. It wasn’t a dig at anyone - but certain morons just can’t accept being told the truth.}

19.) 09 Oct 2018 08:03:00
I think it's most players ambition to play for one of the worlds Elite clubs like Real, Barcelona etc and using a so-called smaller club to get yourself noticed, if you are good enough, is an ideal way of making that dream happen. If Richy said what Ed says he did then he has to prove himself worthy, which can only be good for Everton. And if he does go as long as we replace him with similar or better I can't see it being an issue.

20.) 09 Oct 2018 08:03:54
nev u do no ed 002 isn't a red don't you your making yourself look a right fool mate.

21.) 09 Oct 2018 11:10:36
bloody heck boys, ed literally pointed out a factual statement and you have all gone mad at him, deluded if you think richarlsions dream is to play for efc all his life wake up.

22.) 09 Oct 2018 16:50:02
What's so hard to grasp? The lad has intimated that he wants to play for either of the two biggest clubs in football. Most young South American players aspire to reach that level at some point in their career, it's nothing new.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure you can list many, many others who have said the club is a stepping stone and he wants to play for other sides on joining, and then kept mentioning it, even as recently as this week. There might well be one or two others, but the examples given it was not the case.}

23.) 09 Oct 2018 23:16:39
I agree ed002, I just can't fathom why some posters find this so hard to understand. Or why some are getting angry with this being pointed out!

{Ed002's Note - Well they have calmed down now.}

Following Woburn post, Whether there are rumours regarding Arsenal or Spurs being interested in Keane remains to be seen. He is certainly a much improved player this season and one who we need to remain at Everton,
Everton now maintain they are not now a selling club, but if an offer as suggested was made it would be interesting. It is up to Everton to improve their league position quickly and challenge for top 4 and succeed in cup competitions to be able to keep top players. Keane, now established in the England squad will want to win those medals and if Everton can’t do it for him then look elsewhere. If that happened, then back to square one looking for a replacement.
The same goes for any top player.


{Ed002's Note - If Everton are not a selling club then Everton cannot be a buying club either.}

As Howard Kendall is well respected as an ex player, manager and having a stand named after him, would it not be good idea to have him together with Alan Ball and Colin Harvey represented. The holy trinity.

From that list of BW2412 I would go with Benitez. He is a known quantity at the level Everton need and ticks a lot of boxes. 2 years ago my answer would have been no because of his reference to Everton being a small club. Did he really mean that or was it just ‘mind games’ at the time being manager of the reds?

Burnley’s goalkeeper Pope gaining a good reputation would be a good choice, but being No 2 at Burnley he may not see being No 2 at Everton as an option. But Pickford may draw attention from other big clubs so it’s worth looking at Pope.

With the players the club have brought in, perhaps an improvement in DCL performance will be seen. Give him this season to work at his game and at the end of the season the coach and fans ask the questions
Has he scored more goals
Has he improved his performances personally and as a team player.
If the answer is YES, then keep him, if the answer is NO then sell.
With Ferguson on the coaching I would expect him to give some advise more on the physical side rather than the skilful side.
Other players have made the grade when getting to his age eg Rashford, Kane, etc but perhaps what he needs most is a kick up the backside.

There is a long list of excellent centre forwards who have played for Everton who are all remembered with memories by the fans. The question he needs to be asked is “ do you want to join that list”. If so do the business on the pitch.

Personally with the money that’s been spent, then an improvement on last season position should be expected.
To break into the top 4 at this stage is a very big ask, and would mean either Chelsea or Spurs faltering. Who knows.
I would say 5th or 6th is a realistic target with European qualification at the end of it.

Perhaps also success in a cup competition is long overdue and satisfy those fans who may be a bit more impatient than others for success. It is after all a very long journey to get top 4 and could be expensive also. Remember a new ground to pay for as well.

Agree with your comments. He’s got to learn.
