It seems most clubs are trimming their squads by selling or sending players out on loan. We have a fixed amount of clubs but surely an infinite supply of players so far to find another club. The clubs taking on these players are in the driving seat and can dictate the terms of any deals so in effect drive down the costs. This in effect makes it more difficult to move players on as there is less choice of clubs for players to move onto. The only other choice clubs have is to terminate players contracts which itself can be expensive.
I see it as a supply and demand situation, and easier said than done, so patience is needed.

Doesn't it happen in football that the manager can get a vote of confidence from the manager, then the next week get the sack.
I watched a recording of last Monday's game against Newcastle and there was a camera clip of directors box. Mr Moshiri had a resigned smile about something and Bill blowing his cheeks in a "I'm fed up watching this" way. That's my opinion.

Surely the club need to be a top draw attraction to attract sponsors and supporters etc, so it's not in the clubs interest to settle for mid table positions.

I've sat on the fence regarding Alladyces appointment in that give him the opportunity to see what he can do. Personally never saw him as a Everton manager before his appointment.
If he has had a meeting with Mr Moshiri about remaining in charge then I hope he has been made aware that both results and performances MUST improve starting with this weekend match for him to remain.

He is unlikely to take the club further or to a higher level so personally shouldn't be involved in long term decisions involving players in or out.




14 Feb 2018 09:26:00
Enough has been said about the Sam future for or against, Here's something else. A lot of media talk about off loading Keene at the end of the season. Having spent so much money on him and still being on the young side and England fringe player I would keep him at least to see how he develops over another season and preferably in a settled partnership with A N Other CB.
To let him leave would create a situation where we are looking for 3 new CB this summer considering Jags and Williams could also depart. Isn't that too much disturbance in one important area, where if it happened most of next season would again be swopping CB around to find best combination.

I do think Keene is a good player, think there to something or someone upsetting players behind the scenes, happening to often.

{Ed025's Note - as part of a duo with mee he looked good, we may have picked the wrong half stig..

2.) 14 Feb 2018 11:23:15
It’s difficult to really know if any of our summer signings should be moved on. Apart from Pickford and maybe Rooney/ Sigs, nobody has been given a fair chance to settle.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 12:10:35
Agree with ed25 on this lads, as much as i like keane i think playing alongside ben mee made him look even better than he is. Top player mee, think he will end up at 1 of the big boys soon, hopefully us!

4.) 14 Feb 2018 13:04:21
I like the lad he needs a leader next to him as he's a bit timid. More playing time will bring consistency. This could be said of all of them.

5.) 14 Feb 2018 15:24:26
We seemed to target young up coming kids over the last few seasons. From home and a couple from abroad. But we seemed to lose sight of the fact we needed players to go straight into the fisrt team ED025. Williams only had a season or 2 left and Jags was coming to the end so adding Williams was a mistake. Mee is still only 28 so we would have got 4 or 5 seasons out of him. Keane is still in the right age group and might come good but I have seen too many mistakes from him for my liking. And Burnley don't seem to be missing him.

6.) 14 Feb 2018 18:43:27
Burnley's demands of a centre back are different. Their style and relative success is built on thriving on limited possession. They need "no nonsense" centre backs. Under Koeman we aspired to a possession based approach. Ball playing centre backs were what he was looking for. On that basis Keane would have seemed a better option than Mee. The change of emphasis from the new manager has changed that.



04 Feb 2018 14:32:52
If I was mr Kenwright or moshiri, I would need a good explanation why, having spent over £20m on each of 2player, these player are not automatic first names on the team sheet. Needing time to settle doesn't wash with me. The only way to fit in successfully is by playing regular.
If Everton board happy having £20 m plus players sat on the bench, then there is something seriously wrong upstairs.


{Ed025's Note - for me walsh has a lot to answer for mate..

1.) 04 Feb 2018 14:44:49
A lot is certainly starting to point to Walsh in my eyes as well ed.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes out of his depth BS..

2.) 04 Feb 2018 15:49:29
I get a feeling there is a bit of a rift between the role and SA as well ed. Tosun brought in presumably by Walsh, not played and is criticised by SA. Every time SA asked about transfers you could see the disgust in his eyes and his answers that he had no role in it. Said it a few times today we need to get this right with the right people in place or no manager will succeed, if not then just scrape it and go back to a manager full control role.

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.

Sure Ray Wilson could do the LB job. He’s only 83. One of the best if younger posters ask.

For those supporting Alfie Masson to Everton, it’s reported on BBC sport that Fulham have a 20M bid in for him.


{Ed002's Note - Sky Sports must be well behind the times. The clubs have been in discussions for more than a week and the move is already agreed subject to a medical and personal terms. He wasn't going to move to Everton. The efforts should concentrate Ben Gibson as there is interest now coming from a third side.}

I would think
Neville Southall
Gordon West
Nigel Martin
I find it difficult to place Jordan Pickford at the moment. Would certainly place him with West and Martin. Maybe after another season who knows.

When I started following Everton Albert Dunlop was goalkeeper. I can’t remember, but does anyone else remember his qualities.

Regarding Pickford, I hope we don’t have another situation like we did with Stones and Lukaku in wanting away. No doubt bigger clubs will soon be showing serious interest in him, so it’s important big progress is made this coming season to encourage him to stay.

GB, they may be trying to agree who leaves so they can bring in Harry Kane, Maguire, John Stones back plus Ronald on one year loan.

I remember him coming from Huddersfield, another excellent signing in those days.
