In my opinion, a club needs to be able to offer 2 of 3 things to sign big players now (not in need of any development) Money (Tick) , attractive football club (unfortunately not at the moment) and high profile manager. I can't see big players coming to join the everton project for unsworth or dyche just yet. Think we need the high profile manager such as ancelotti (if possible) to get the big name striker we are after. And supposedly he's now on record in Germany saying he's got an affection for the Premiership and would be interested in a project 'like Everton. If true, I think it's a no brainer. And then he could possibly train unsworth (or someone else from within) to take the reigns later like he did with Paul Clements.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 07:19:51
That isn't at all what he said. He's not going to come to Everton.

2.) 01 Nov 2017 07:50:16
I'd like Ancelotti with somebody like Arteta as his number two.

3.) 01 Nov 2017 08:43:05
Once again, we need a sense of realism. Ancelloti isn't coming. It's the same mentality that expected us to be breaking into the top 4 or challenging for the title. Dyche might be the best manager we can get. I'd love Fonseca, Silva or Favre, but they may not be options. Claude Puel wouldn't have been a bad shout for us - he has a long record of shoring up teams defensively and bringing young players through successfully - given time, which he wasn't at Southampton. There just aren't many options that suit what fans at least seem to want.

4.) 01 Nov 2017 08:49:06
He said he is waiting until the summer as he is still being paid off by bayern Munich. I'm sure agreement could be reached as always it comes down to money.

5.) 01 Nov 2017 09:09:10
wolves manager now being mentioned.

6.) 01 Nov 2017 14:06:29
I do get hope good it would feel to appoint someone like Ancelloti. But as you say, scoundrel, he's said he's not signing anything until summer. We can't wait till then unless we're happy to have Unsworth in post all year - no decent manager signs a six-month contract. All Carlo said about Everton was that people keep mentioning his name in connection with various openings, four of which he mentioned specifically and one of these was Everton. He gave no indication whatsoever that he was open to it.

7.) 01 Nov 2017 14:34:24
Can't see the guy from Wolves being interested. They're top of the league, he's been backed in the transfer market so why would he jib that for a club in real danger of going in the opposite direction?

8.) 01 Nov 2017 19:46:32
Are we just a vanity project for Moshiri?



04 Jul 2017 21:54:51
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.

Before I start, I'd like to say anyone will go anywhere for ENOUGH money.
If our supposed first choice (Silva) 9s not going to happen and we offered 13m for his buy out and then wages on top, why do t we offer Ancelotti WHATEVER he wants to come in.
My opinion is Fonseca has no Prem experience (handling the lowest confidence team) and Sam plays boring football, is an arrogant man (and now knows we're desperate, so has us by the balls) and has a big black question mark hanging over him.
Ancelotti at least has Prem experience, a wealth of knowledge, good connections and has said he is open to the right project.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 09:39:09
Allardyce would be a betrayal of everything Labone, Ball and the rest stood for.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 10:19:42
I think appointing Allardyce would be the worst thing we could do. He'd squeeze is for every penny. Sign players for right now and leave the next manager an even bigger mountain to climb.



07 Nov 2017 17:01:09
Is this Sam talk genuine or what? Can't see why he'd be interested in a short term thing. If true, he's need to pay palace back £2 million. There's approx 30 weeks left of the season and he want 100k a week supposedly. That's 3 million in wages, pay palace back 2 million leaving him with a million for 30 weeks work.


{Ed002's Note - ignore the money, it does no more than confuse football supporters.}

1.) 07 Nov 2017 17:17:52
Kingo78. It doesn't work like that. If it did transfers and deals would be sealed, signed and delivered the same day.



24 Sep 2017 12:32:03
I've never really been convinced by Koeman, even before this last month or so it seems to be the fashionable thing to do. Not convinced by his selections, tactics, development and even his sterness to some extent. But what really got me yesterday was (and match of the day partly highlighted it) was when Niasse scored his first, you saw bug Dunc go ballistic on the side line showing what it really meant to be a blue. Koeman almost looked downbeat. Regardless whether he has 'issues with Niasse, he's scoring an equaliser in a project Koeman is supposedly trying to get everyine on bored, and he looked the most miserable of the lot. Not heart whatsoever. Just there for his overpriced salary. Come on Barca. Make your supposed move sop. Ha.


1.) 24 Sep 2017 13:49:50
That's your take on it Kingo. Me it looked like he thought a draw was not enough. When scored the second he had his hands in the air screaming as well.

I'm pretty sure he is not in the job to be a failure. let's be fair in our assessments.

If he does things badly point them out but also give credit. If you don't want to do that then maybe reassess your view of what a supporter is.

2.) 24 Sep 2017 14:21:22
Good shout BlueJohn mate, too much of that on here.

3.) 24 Sep 2017 14:34:35
Didn't most of us slate klipperty last season for celebrating a draw like it was a win. I would be concerned if he hadn't celebrated the 2nd, it is also his job to ship out anyone who isn't good enough and that was his assessment of Niasse last season. Like he has said he had to leave if he wanted to play he wouldn't have got a game with Lukaku and DCL in front of him. This season is different and maybe he has got his assessment wrong, the premier league is full of players who didn't make it at a club but is now smashing it at another club.

4.) 24 Sep 2017 15:08:35
Nice one Smit mate.



19 Sep 2017 08:39:27
My personal opinion is that even though we have improved on the squad this summer, we are still a long way off 'securing things'. I see it as closer to the top 6 and further from the bottom 13.
After playing 4 of the top 6 already I'm not 100% alarmed and thinking of relegation already. But what has concerned me is what Koeman actually brings to the table.
By all accounts, Walsh us in control of all transfers. Koeman is in charge if the squad and the tactician. And for me, the sale tions and tactics have been way, way off, already costing us a few extra points.
This Sunderland game has come at thus the right time for us, providing he doesn't change the whole squad around, and give a much needed confidence boost. The next 5 games are there really for the taking (even without our pace and goalscoring ability up top) , Arsenal included in that list.
Can't wait to see what comes of it.




31 Aug 2017 23:12:31
Disappointed on our (lack of) deadline signings? Yes
Pleased with the improvement in last season's squad? Yes
Going to lose my voice cheering every single game at least until January? Hell yeah

And Valencia last year. Everyone grumbled when we got him and he did some sort of job for us from time to time. This is why we are fans and not working in the business. Let's leave it to the professionals (and grumble when they get it wrong haha)

I made a comment on him during the u21's. Looked hot in all honesty. Only seem him in that tournament. Asked Ed how he rated him and I got told off for not keeping it everton related. He looked class this tournament.

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)

Same. Very inept management. No clue on selection, formation, kids development seems to have stopped, he's too critical of HIS players. But owners seem to like him.
