Take your blue blinkers off. I'm an evertonian for nearing 40 years. Right here, right now, team for team what are people expecting?
I think we still need some time to now gel as a team. Where as I am over the moon at the full 4 days of the window so far (Never known anything like it before as a blue) I cannot see us winning the league (which I've heard if other blue sites).

I see us pushing the top 6 harder (maybe even overtaking one or two of arsenal) the gap below is I think will get even greater. We are DEFINiTELY going in the right direction.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 22:13:52
Bit of pre season optimism is healthy for everyone an the buzz around us at the moment can only help us. Imagine the atmosphere first game of the season. Wow the old lady is going to be rocking that Saturday afternoon an i for one one cannot wait an I do believe with the structure we have started we are capable of anything we want wih hard work.


Everton the gear.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 22:36:31
Have to agree with Kingo here but we our on the way back to the top that I am sure of, it will still be a couple of seasons away.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 12:41:35
Everyone slating us and saying we have signed "average players" that no-one else wants. We have improved on every area of the team in the players we have brought in. We finished 7th last year so we had to strengthen the squad to advance on that position. I genuinely think other teams and fans are getting slightly nervous and jealous of the fact we are making improvements and with good young hungry players who have the same ambitions as our new owner and manager. We aren't title challengers but we should be looking at Europe and a cup win this season, and what's wrong with a bit of optimism instead of the same old Everton response of moaning! Rooney may be 31 but he is a massive improvement on Niasse, Kone and Valencia. We need quality players to increase competition and I reckon we are closing the gap on the Sky6. UP THE TOFFEES.



27 Jun 2017 13:00:11
Ed, any more movement in Dendonker? Gone a bit quiet recently but we've supposedly shut the door now on the inter Croat midfielder and now seemingly loaned anderlecht this new Nigerian striker. Any links there?


{Ed025's Note - last i heard was that we had a £15m bid rejected kingo, but nothing since mate..

1.) 27 Jun 2017 18:45:22
Cheers mate. Would be one i'd like to come in.



09 Mar 2017 00:37:16
Don't really rate him that highly, nor do I see where I see where he'll fit in but I got a feeling Oxlade-Chamberlain will be ours in the summer. Just a feeling.


1.) 09 Mar 2017 07:56:01
On his day he's unplayable and can't he play both left and right wing? If so it'd be another proven attacking option.

2.) 09 Mar 2017 11:07:28
Not for me.

3.) 09 Mar 2017 14:32:03
Would take him all day based on his character alone. One of the only players to come out of this past couple of grim months for Arsenal, with any credibility.

Works his bollocks off. A new start, with new players and confidence will allow him to push on.

I would take him all day.

Have to be thinking about the squad now, not just the first 11. Even if he didn't start games, having him on the bench to come on, as opposed to Lennon can only be a good thing for Everton.

4.) 09 Mar 2017 22:41:41
I personally think he walks into our starting 11. However I also think there is no chance of him signing for us.

5.) 10 Mar 2017 09:32:30
Cant think of any PL team were the OX wouldn't be a great addition to their squad. Quality player, who I would love to see in EFC colours. Highly unlikely to happen but we can dream.

6.) 10 Mar 2017 13:32:32
Would love to sign him.

7.) 14 Mar 2017 11:41:55
Id take him in a heartbeat. Given a run of games and a little confidence he would be a massive improvement for our starting 11.



05 Feb 2017 00:36:30
In no way am I grumbling about the club, but honestly believe that, in the summer, we keep what we've got right now, sell our senior loans, if we could get a gk, maybe TWO youngish cb, a wide man and striker (and maybe a fullback either side as cover) we are almost there.

That's 7 players (in my opinion) to complete our squad and we are a serious threat again. So very proud to be a blue, really heading in the right direction. (Not getting the rubbish of my mates any more. Haha) Can't see how anyone at the moment can grumble about anything about our club at the minute. UP THE TOFFEES!


1.) 05 Feb 2017 07:40:28
I think it's clear that we need at least one quality, relatively young centre back. We at least need cover for Baines, assuming that Holgate is our cover for Coleman and Galloway is going to be utilised properly as a centre back. Another wide man is a must, and we could do with one striker as we have Mirallas/ Lookman/ Calvert-Lewin as cover for Lukaku if necessary. 4 players seems more reasonable.

I'm probably going to be slated for this but I actually think that Joel could end up being a number one for us. He's only 26, so won't peak for another 5-7 years, and has been impressive every time he's been given an opportunity, save for a shaky first couple of games. He's been great the past month or so, and will only improve with more game time. Might save us £20-30m on a new keeper if we stick with him.

2.) 05 Feb 2017 09:38:38
There's certainly something there with Robles BT and you're right, he is young and will improve. What I like is the fact that it doesn't matter to Koeman whether it's his signing or a previous managers one, as in the case of Robles, if your playing well your in. Even if that is at the expense of one of his own signings.

This manager will do what it takes to win.

3.) 05 Feb 2017 23:53:29
Have to agree blue tommy, Robles may be a very good goalkeeper in the making let's decide at the end of the season.



30 Jan 2017 11:57:53
Thought that has just occurred to me, are there any fees being mention for Gibson and Oviedo? Could possibly see Gibson am being a free (even though he's just signed a contract) but my guess would be Oviedo would conduct a fee wouldn't he?


1.) 30 Jan 2017 12:38:25
I've heard/ read that it would be 4m for Oviedo and 2m for Gibson.

2.) 30 Jan 2017 12:46:58
I read somewhere that it was £4m for Oviedo and £2m for Gibson how true I don't know

3.) 30 Jan 2017 14:13:41
I've heard we don't have to pay any fees to Sunderland :-)

4.) 30 Jan 2017 16:06:21
I know some will laugh at this. Imho if they both stay injury free they will do a job. £6m for 2 players nowadays is basically unheard of.

Centre back and a left sided pacey striker and I think we can take over the world. Haha. Would like De Vrij from Lazio and maybe Martial from Man u (minus his attitude) . Greedy I know. Haha.


1.) 16 Aug 2017 21:49:01
If take martial all day! Not going to happen though I don't think.



16 Aug 2017 20:41:27
Wow. Everton sign Gylfi. didn't see that one coming. Haha.


{Ed025's Note - love it kingo..

1.) 17 Aug 2017 08:12:01
Didn't even know we'd been linked.

Happy Premiership Eve.




04 Aug 2017 21:02:01
I don't mean to be doom and gloom after our transfer dealings so far, but I genuinely believe that if we signed a cb, left and right forward (someone fast, tricky and knows where the net is) I genuinely believe we are a cl contender. The two top men for me would be someone like (and I hate to use these as examples) Mane and Walsh and for me I'd love de Vrij. My only concern is our pace up front, even with Bolasie back around Xmas.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 21:14:39
. but sometimes just one player can makes a team tick. suarez did it at liverpool. kante does it at chelsea. you find the missing piece and everything else just falls into place. and I think that RK and SW believe sigurdson is that player. that aside I am in no doubt there will be another 2- 4 players.

2.) 04 Aug 2017 22:07:58
I would even play the two together Klaasen and Sigurdson as a centre two. Scheiderlin behind.



01 Aug 2017 21:29:53
I think what we need to remember is the team we are building 'right now' unfortunately won't obviously win us the league. In my opinion, what this build is meant to do is obviously (hopefully) improve us as a team and as a squad and get us closer or amongst the top 6. I think so far our buys have done a good job in doing that (without a ball being kicked yet) . But, for arguments sake, if we sign Giroud for approx 30m and we get amongst the big boys, is he still going to be our Champions League striker or do we improve. What I think I am saying is these 'older' targets for big money are they a one season panic buy or for the long term. At 30, and for 30m, is he going to be for the next 3 years, a 30m sub next year or sell next year for a lot less than 30m? (All providing we push on as a team/ squad/ club again next season) . Sorry for the ramble, harder to write down what I'm trying to say haha.

For me, it's time to move on. I would guess it's Gylfi or Klaasen in that role. Have to give Klaasen time to settle now. It can't be good for him to settle into a new league, with us already lining up a player in his position. Would rather buy 2 quick, creative, wide men up top now. And my personal opinion is 50m has always been 15m overpriced (depending on what we get fir Barkley)

Offer 35 plus Williams. Then we got 15 ish to get us a better cb too.

Then maybe if the company won't leave him, then maybe he needs to leave them for the sake of his career before he's another (evertonian) player who never fulfilled his potential.


{Ed025's Note - it could be the making of the lad kingo..

For a bit of a risky gamble, Zahore from Cardiff. CL experience, two footed, fast, strong, good in the air. AC. Milan and Fiorentina as a kid. Now at Cardiff who just turned down 10m from Hull. He ticks most boxes but no experience in top flight?

But are Martina and Williams going to be regulars? 3 more to. come in according to Koeman.

Don't think they played too bad really. Think we were really missing some creativity out wide. For me tonight, Calvert-Lewin and Mirrales didn't do it but is still really pre-season with something at stake. Get 2 more wide attackers (not Gylfi for me) and it'll all work.

He's here there and everywhere but with little end result. I think Davies may add that little bit extra last half hour. Not saying I don't like the players, just a different dimension. Not too many decent chances on goal at the minute.
