I've heard that the money plus player is only a loan deal and not permanently.
Any clarification eds. Thanks x.


{Ed025's Note - if he is part of any deal i would expect it to be permanent myself mowfee mate..

1.) 30 Jul 2017 15:27:27
Oh shame. I quite liked him. So what then is the price going to be. 30 plus Connelly = 50 million.
He's one for the future. Now I'm thinking how to evaluate an up and coming English Defender. I wouldn't want Everton to put up more than 30 cash upfront. Even writing that I'm not particularly happy with the deal.

{Ed025's Note - if it does come to fruition mowfee it will still be over £40m as well i would expect mate..

2.) 30 Jul 2017 15:58:19
Dont like the idea at all. Would rather loan him out and meet the asking price then lose a young lad with potential to save 5 to 10m. Could end up with a dier/ mustafi situation. Youth is priceless in my eyes.

3.) 30 Jul 2017 16:01:50
Cheers ed for your reply. The more I think about it the more I hate the deal. I think Swansea are getting a cracking deal at 45/ 50 mill cash. Now 40 plus Connelly. They getting an even better deal. WHAT THE HELL. I'd rather Everton just pay th 50 mill and keep Connelly.

{Ed025's Note - it will depend on how highly koeman rates connelly mowfee, if he is not part of his future plans then its a decent deal for everyone mate..

4.) 30 Jul 2017 16:05:47
Sorry still going on about it. 2 or 3 years time they'll sell him for 30 Mill at least. Who ever come up with this potential deal. I'm sorry has got it seriously wrong.

{Ed025's Note - but your guessing mate, im sure ronnie and unsy will have discussed the pro,s and con,s of how important he is to the present and future squad mowfee and i trust them to make the right decision..

5.) 30 Jul 2017 16:14:50
The player has made his intentions known to Swansea so let them stew on it and see how long they want to put up with the uncertainty. What Clement said yesterday has only put them all under pressure. Very naive. This one will go one way, and that is Sigurdsson joining us with Swansea settling for less than £50 million. They are rushing the deal. Everton are showing a cool head here and for once it looks like we are in the driving seat and not Swansea.

{Ed025's Note - i agree ace..

6.) 30 Jul 2017 19:28:27
Well if Connolly is part of the deal I hope we insert a buy back and/ or sell on clause.

{Ed025's Note - i would hope that would be a given ST..

7.) 31 Jul 2017 01:10:36
Just pay the 50mil and keep Connelly, we can make 5 or 10 mil on the price for Barkley and McCarthy.

8.) 31 Jul 2017 07:27:33
Swansea do not want to sell, would you if he was the difference between survival in a very lucrative Premier League and dropping out, well worth 50 mill. So us in the driving seat remark is way off, only correct if it is the back seat driver.

9.) 31 Jul 2017 15:17:22
I disagree Bill. They are willing to sell, he said so in his interview. They just prefer him to stay. When they said it needs resolving quickly they put themselves under pressure for the first time. All the noises coming out of Swansea, whether it’s the club or the fans is that they know he will not be there so get the best price and get it quick.



29 Jul 2017 18:56:59
Not sure the "Just seen Sigursson in Liverpool" is true or not. But a source claimed he asked for an autograph but was refused because he was too busy trying to sort a €34 deal. Plus he said he thinks he seen Koeman.

Very suspicious since €34 million euros is what 30/ 31 sterling and he thinks he spotted Koeman. Well let's be fair here Koeman sticks out like a sore thumb. You can't mistake seeing or not seeing him.




26 Jul 2017 20:26:50
Koeman not sure if Everton will place another bid For Sigurdsson. Interesting what what.
That's a paper talking. But I have watched Koeman saying Ross has no future at Everton. So it's find another team or rot in the U23's.
Ross what a plank.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 21:20:55
I can't fathom Barkley out Mowfee82. He needs a new challenge (allegedly) . As someone has already said "were having a party and he wants to leave when we're getting the ale out". Strange boy guided by an even stranger agent.

2.) 26 Jul 2017 21:56:38
Agree jimmyc but I also think it looks like him and RK just don't get on. Has to be a big factor too.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 05:35:09
What i find baffling about Ross's comment is how he need a NEW challenge when he hasn't finished the one he started at Everton yet! Hardly stand out last season.
Like going for your dessert after eating half your main course.
He seems to have had his head turned from somewhere anyway, hope for the lads sake he doesn't follow in the footsteps of Fabien Delph, Wayne Bridge, Scott Sinclair and Jack Rodwell. ETC!

4.) 27 Jul 2017 05:50:03
I just think he needs out of Merseyside for personal reasons. Don't know what it is but something's not right.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 07:28:35
I think Ace is correct as like a few people I've heard his personal like isn't exactly rosy, someone told me he has not been on the town since the incident a while back which sounds like he may have some issues with a few people, not sure how true it is though as just a rumour.

Also I think he and RK don't get on simply because he isn't that good and RK told him so, he had chances and i'm not going to slag him off but hardly lit up Goodison

We will accept 25 million last day I reckon.

6.) 27 Jul 2017 12:15:22
Well, if we have to lose one, then don't let the door hit you on the ass ross, but before you committ career suiside, have a word with francis jeffers.

7.) 28 Jul 2017 23:36:14
Police investigation dropped as he wasn't willing to progress with charges after he took a smack 'unprovoked'
The type of people he has upset in Liverpool are probably one of if not the main reason he needs to move, some youngsters can't take to the fame and abuse the status they have with the 'do you know who I am' attitude with little to no respect for other peoples girlfriends.
I don't know if this is the exact reason for the 'new challenge' excuse, but to me it makes sense.



21 Jul 2017 11:07:14
Eds could you please shed some light to why the Sigurdssons transfer taking so long for a final outcome. So far all our business has been no messing. We want, we buy. Done.
As Sigurdsson's our top priority player. Surely you want him in asap, getting settled and on tour with us. Obviously this hasn't happened and I feel bad for him. His head is probably thinking "what the hell" he ditched to go on tour with Swansea last minute quite literally and now training with the U23's. If we ever do sign him. He's now 2 months behind the rest of everybody else fitting in and getting acquainted. As a supporter to me it looks like a lot of messing around. We've had Lukaku's money equal 3/ 4's of what we spent so far. So surely money isn't an issue. We've known the price for him 50 million and we know Swansea are being stubborn about it. So Everton have 2 choices pay or walk away. I just hope this isn't some tactic to have the deadline day headliner. We all know about the possible transfer so to me it would be a frustrated sigh of relief "finally" and not joys and woohoo's.

Now I've wrote this as a supporter of Everton for 23 years. So I don't know what goes on in the background. Like I said this post like every other post is just a supporters opinion on what we see.


{Ed002's Note - Easy. Nobody has made an acceptable bid.}

1.) 21 Jul 2017 11:17:41
Do you know of any new player interest ed mate?

{Ed002's Note - I think much will depend on whether or not a deal can be struck for Sigurdsson Joe. Aside from that we are back to the Giroud situation which will likely need Arsenal to be well on the trail of signing another striker - and they are now heading that way.}

2.) 21 Jul 2017 11:33:39
Haha having a melt down here ed02😁.

I understand what you say ed about the fee being agreed. And I get I can sit here and spend Moshiri's money with a click of my fingers.
It's just confusing and I guess frustrating how all Evertons other signings have come across as "Thats the asking price. There you go" But the priority target. The one we'd want in first to settle its like we're dawdling.

Don't shout at me ed hahaha. Just a passionate supporter. I've never been more excited over a new season. And you're probably right getting too excited.

Keep up the brilliant work. I love this site 🤗.

{Ed002's Note - I understand that it is frustrating but the club need to keep spending in check.}

3.) 21 Jul 2017 12:59:07
Thing is mate, who says Sigurdssons our main target, the rags might but I am sure R K knows better time will tell, at the end of the day so far our business has been great cheers, GuernseyBlue.

4.) 21 Jul 2017 15:01:03
EFC are in quite a strong position for a deal Mowfee. Siggy has shown his interest in joining us by not wanting to go on tour. Swansea won't want to be accepting an offer in the last week of the window and have 40 mill or so to get in a replacement but no time to do it. If Siggy goes and they do not strengthen properly they could risk a relegation scrap they may not be able to get out of this time. They also won't want a player there next season who's head has been messed with over a failed transfer.

5.) 21 Jul 2017 15:53:29
we have chased the player since last summer (gylfi) i mean so you can sort of say conclusively that we are after him and the fact that he has shown a willingness to move to us confirms we have been in contact with his people. however common sense has to be applied in anything you do in life. even if it hardly shows in the prem these days. he simply isn't worth the price it's that simple . i know a lot of fans like him i do myself but the delay is confirmation that we are unwilling to meet the asking price. i would guess that we are waiting to see what gylfi can do his end to force the deal thru. when they gave him assurances on him signing recent improved terms they will have told him, they would not stand in his way if a reasonable offer came in as we probs would have done with the belgian guy if he had been 1% more likely to sign an extension. all that being said swans have stood in his way and priced him out of a move to anywhere. so the ball is in his court,

6.) 21 Jul 2017 17:12:23
Swansea will have a price to sell and that won't be the price in the media. Until someone bids that amount they will not let him go. It's the same situation as Barkley and lukaku.

7.) 21 Jul 2017 18:36:45
I'd expect they want a bit of clarity on Barkley and other transfers (left sided defender) before upping their bid. If Ross stays then that gives us Barkley, Klaasen, Rooney and maybe Dowell who can play at number 10. Is it really worth blowing the rest of the summer budget on one player who we don't really need?

8.) 21 Jul 2017 18:59:05
What is our budget? I know there are other costs associated with signings but if we look at incomings and outgoings we haven't actually spent a massive amount so I would expect Koeman and Walsh have some other targets bubbling under the radar.

9.) 24 Jul 2017 14:19:25
Correct me if I'm wrong. But we still have best part of 50mill sitting in a safe from the stones sale. Lukaku sale 75mill +adds. We are still in profit from all signings made this summer. Plus money from Moshiri. Plus tv. Plus finishing 7th. If we wanted I'm sure we could spend a lot more money than we are letting on. Activate neymars release claus I say haha.

10.) 25 Jul 2017 15:51:49
yeh rik-efc you are wrong in the sense that we have had 2 more high profile cash injections from usmanov (naming rites on training ground) and another from a banker who is a yank? altho he could be chinese would have to check on that . but everything else you said is right.



21 Jul 2017 09:23:46
I hope this next rumour is total rubbish. But we are interested in a try before you buy with Tottenhams Moussa Sissoko. No thank you.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 12:34:47
the really odd thing is spurs have put no thought into any deal for sissoko how could he ever even come to our city after the rubbish he was chattin' all last season let alone put on an everton shirt. if we swallow our pirde and take him i would be very disappointed in koeman and moshiri and it shows the folly of football a guy takes a swipe at efc every chance he can get then we take him pay him good money. nah! would consider never going the match again but then i would remember hey i love everton and probs go but wouldn't be happy about it lol i honestly didn't want us to buy him last year one of my friends is a geordie and he has nothing good to say about him showing me clips of his performances during his stay at st james' park he is without a doubt a lemon ask any geordie doesn't know when to release the ball trys to take on too much without lifting his head up really really don't want him that's for sure hope efc hierarchy feel the same way.

{Ed025's Note - i agree totally floats..

20 Sep 2017 23:13:45
Well done to Niasse brilliantly took goal. I just hope management feel like complete asses. Niasse has been 100% professional with the way Everton have treated him. He posted a tweet saying he's playing with the U23's and he hasn't even got a locker. He has his bag. Does his training then goes home. Should be ashamed.


1.) 21 Sep 2017 10:35:50
Sorry mowfee I disagree totally Everton have not treated him bad it's what happens in football if a player does not cut the mustard he is sold on or loaned out and that what happened to omar he was loaned out an now he has a second chance to try and do better.

If you had your own company an had a guy who worked for you who was the nicest guy you could meet but was crap at what he did would you keep paying him because if you did you business would fail rapidly.

2.) 21 Sep 2017 19:02:25
Thing is he's not crap though. Banging them in for the U23's and scored within 20 mins for the full squad. Best scoring stats for us right night.
He never had a chance. Start of the season he was deemed crap. Which is funny really because the rest of the team can hardly scream and shout.



14 Sep 2017 22:51:03
Hey all.
My Tottenham mate said Tottenham did this a few seasons ago. Went out and bought 7 new players and the team took ages to gel although that first season they finished 6th I think he said. They only have 2 of them 7 still in their squad. Also Tottenham beat Dortmund yesterday 3-1 and the percentage of play was 70/ 30 against Tottenham. My point is last week forget about Tottenham are a quality team with clinical finishing. My point I guess you can say is. We all (me included) got super excited about the takeover and the new players bought in and expected to hit the ground running. But in reality I don't think it happens.

Stick with it blues. Keep supporting.


{Ed025's Note - nice sentiment mowfee and im certain we will all give our support to the club..but bloody hell mate they dont half make it difficult at times..

1.) 15 Sep 2017 07:44:33
Good post Mowfee82. Darkest hour is just before the dawn.



01 Sep 2017 00:51:01
Just seen a Twitter video from Portugal tv saying we bid for Jimenez at half 10 tonight as a last ditch attempt and now we have until 1am to get the deal done. Can anyone clarify this please. X.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 07:25:13
Was rejected by benfica mate. Mitroglu joined Marseille so they would have been left short. Think we really wanted him we should have gone in much earlier.



25 Aug 2017 07:27:53
Good result a brilliant goal by Sigurdsson and is Pickford 2 for 2 on penalty stops or am I thinking of the England game? Anyhoo.
Our defence looks strong and Ashley Williams I would of given man of the match to. Absolutely outstanding last night.
Martina getting more confident in left back. For a freebie that was really good business. The last 5 minutes when we were just passing the ball around I found highly entertaining brilliant possession play and we looked confident doing it.
Sadly I thought there was some negatives. Still lacking the main forward and Lookman looked off again 😣. I'm hoping Lookman just needs the confidence and will just play the game and not over think his opportunity at Everton.

Chelsea next let's stuff them at Stanford Bridge. I still feel we dropped 2 points at City and not just do well to get a point.


1.) 25 Aug 2017 08:06:16
Hope that was a touch of sarcasm mowfeet about williams mate. I thought he was awful when put under pressure. He was an accident waiting to happen hence the penalty given away. His tackling and decision making left an awful lot to be desired imo.

{Ed025's Note - i thought he had a decent game jimmy except for a couple of poor decisions, but he does need to cut them out i agree mate..

2.) 25 Aug 2017 08:25:43
As i said Ed its when he's put under pressure he let's himself down. He's ok when say its a backs to the wall job when he doesn't have to think heading it away making block tackles and the like. Don't get me wrong i am a Williams fan and i know he can do better as he's proved in the past i just hope he can get back to his best .

{Ed025's Note - its a lack of concentration for me jimmy, he can look very solid like he did last night but i always feel he has a mistake in him which can be very costly mate..

3.) 25 Aug 2017 08:26:24
Yeah I thought he had a decent game too. Thought the penalty was very harsh on him.

{Ed025's Note - i thought it was a pen pierre, he was very good but he needs to cut out those silly mistakes mate..

4.) 25 Aug 2017 08:49:09
I said Williams was MOM just as he gave the penalty away!

Sig looks like a bargain to me. His goal was what genius players do. I mean players who are a couple of steps above the rest.

Lookman was poor for me and his ball retention is a major problem. I think a loan to a championship club would have been better for him. I still think though as he gets a little older he will be a magnificent player for us.

The MOM in the end for me was Davies. As soon as he came on we took control of the game for the first time. The last 20 minutes or so literally took any momentum out of them and we started to look like A top premier team. There was one chance were we put 30 odd passes together and should have ended with a goal.

If we'd have done that in the city game we'd have 6 points on the board.

Finally, Pickford. Again. Brilliant. Nothing more to say except Big nev might finally have a buddy to join him at the top table in 10 years for Everton goalkeeping legends.

Still undefeated.

5.) 25 Aug 2017 08:49:59
Ed025 for me he came back from the summer break in poor shape he had put a few pounds on, although pre season works it off it is not good practice for a seasoned pro that is of his build, he has looked slower and likely to give away needless fouls. You would think with the competition for starts he would be right on his game.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes fit enough wakka its just his decision making that is holding him back for me mate..

6.) 25 Aug 2017 09:15:04
before he gave the pen away he got caught with the same foul earlier, let's hope he sorts things as he is a decent centre back.



23 Aug 2017 18:48:59
I'm saying it again lol. Dembele from Celtic. I really think he's a punt worth risking. We wanted him last year but his agent recommended Celtic of the Prem. He can score goals yes it's the Scottish league but even if he has half the chances that's 16 goals. Adding to it though he did score a couple in the champions league so he can do it.


{Ed025's Note - im a fan as well mowfee mate..

1.) 23 Aug 2017 19:09:14
He did ok at Fulham.

2.) 23 Aug 2017 19:26:17
Ed are we even remotely interested in Dembele. I mean have we enquired about him or has he just gone unnoticed. I hope not because I really think he would suit us down to ground.

{Ed025's Note - we were very interested at one point mowfee, i dont know why he is off the list unless it was a lost cause mate..

3.) 23 Aug 2017 19:38:09
Well I heard Celtic were unwilling to sell because they wanted to qualify for champions league. Can only assume to give it their best with or without Dembele and pick up the huge pay packet for qualifying. Ed get your guys to speak to the powers above 😉.

{Ed025's Note - i will try mate..

4.) 23 Aug 2017 21:15:18
The problem about getting a striker is that their are only a few who would improve the side. The clubs who these players play for are reluctant to sell unless a ridiculous offer is made and this becomes more of a problem the closer we get to the transfer deadline. In addition if one does become available there are other clubs who would jump at the possibility of signing them themselves. I just hope that Walsh has identified some player who is not on any other teams or the presses radar and we get a low cost gem.

5.) 23 Aug 2017 21:11:16
I think Ed 002 said the player wasn’t interested in Everton. I could be mistaken.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 08:21:36
Dembele is not the player for us. The Scottish Premiership is at best middle to lower Championship level and I am talking about the Scottish first two places here. Players go there for an easy ride and Managers either with no ambition or because they have failed elsewhere.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 10:08:30
I know he's young, BUT 17 goals in the Scottish league is not really prolific is it? over rated and extremely over priced £20mill max.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 10:09:24
Bill there are some excellent players in the premier league that came down from Celtic. It can be argued the Dembele may do just as well.

9.) 24 Aug 2017 12:42:22
Dembele is not the type of striker we should be looking for.

10.) 24 Aug 2017 16:29:10
He scored 32 didn't he in all competitions. Plus he has played in the champions league and scored. He's young still learning. Surely now is the time to buy being Everton have a new squad. So everyone is still learning. I wouldn't be too hasty on this guy.

11.) 24 Aug 2017 18:57:59
We don't need a young upcoming striker. We've got 2 already. We need a more experienced proven goalscorer. We're in Europe with a couple of chances of the CL and someone with the experience in this would be our biggest asset.

{Ed025's Note - im with you john..

100 and 10 percent agree with you TrueBlue. Dembele 32 goals or Jimenez 1 in 4 is it 🤔. I thought Sigurdsson was a hefty price but proven. Dembele can score we've all seen him do it but possibly a punt. Although I don't see it as that. Or Jimenez sadly I can't add much more to it.

Absolutely right. Impossible to take any positive today. Back 4 looked like amateurs and the creativity was boring. I'm just hoping it's because we've been playing top 4 therefore the class is different. Top 10 finish.
