Ed002 any info on the future of some players that possibly might be leaving Everton. Namely Gibson, Cleverly, McCarthy and the 2 that there are rumours about Niasse and Kone. Apparently Hull and QPR are their destinations.

Just wondering does it look like any leaving us this month? Happy with the way the incomings are developing. If we get MS it will be a good window even if its stopped at that.

{Ed002's Note - Niasse will almost certainly go to Hull. McCarthy interests Celtic and Crystal Palace with West Brom and Newcastle United probably out-muscled in their interest.}

1.) 11 Jan 2017 07:06:17
Niasse deal to hull almost done shame it's only on loan, But BBC report Scheiderlin deal done

2.) 11 Jan 2017 07:46:06
Thank you Ed002. I take it there is no real developments happening at the moment for anyone else.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained what I know.}



22 Jun 2016 23:24:26
Ed, any truth to Everton agreeing release clause for Sneijder? Seen some reports of £5.6m fee agreed.

Also what's the story with financial fair play? Technically are we allowed to have a net spend of the reported £100m we are supposed to be spending this summer.

{Ed002's Note - Southampton made an enquiry about Sneijder in December 2014 but didn't follow it up - although it substantiates that there has been interest from Kopeman in the past. Lazio have discussed him with Galatasaray but they have stepped back because of the wages being demanded. Their possible willingness to sell in the summer may be driven by a need to reduce wages rather than any transfer fee as he is still seen as an asset by the club - but the club has a European ban to deal with. Forget anything about any release clause. I am not aware of any firm interest from Everton at this time but it doesn't mean that there isn't.

The additional income is in next season's budget (starting July 1) and comes from the additional television money. If there is an issue it might be wages rather than transfer fees.}

1.) 23 Jun 2016 01:56:12
Thanks, Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 23 Jun 2016 09:08:01
Thank you Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}



15 Jun 2016 09:28:27
Was saying rather get Krul and between him and Robles they would be surely a good keeper between them.

Maybe the media is linking Krul because of the Dutch connection. Be interested in what you have to say Ed.

{Ed002's Note - As I said, strikes me as a risky plan if that is what the club are plotting.}

1.) 15 Jun 2016 10:05:05
Risky, yes. But with luck it could turn out to be good business. I'm sure the medical staff could assess him to see the extent of the injury.

We need at least one keeper. He's 27 and would be approaching his prime as a keeper shortly.

This is all based on him being lucky with injuries obviously. Don't think he'd break the bank and worth taking the risk imho. If it paid off it would be fantastic.

Other option is spend big and get an established injury free player. I just love getting bargains. Hate spending big wads of money. Have to be a dead cert to go into 10's of millions for me.

2.) 15 Jun 2016 14:25:41
I've always liked him, but I know a couple of Newcastle fans, who's opinions I trust, who don't rate him at all. May be a bit of a Howard situation where everyone in the league thinks he's good except his own fans.



15 Jun 2016 09:26:36
Ed, I see we are linked with Krul in some reports. Are you aware of any interest?

Not the 'marquee' signing some would be looking for but could be a very good addition imho. Between him and Robles they could compete and keep each other on their toes for number 1. Get the best out of both of them then.

Can't see many top keepers available. Is a position I'd like to be very strong but Krul could turn out a shrewd bit of business with a bit of luck.

Being linked with Hart for £40m is ludicrous in my opinion. I'd rather get Krul for a fraction of the price and the best out of him and Robles for.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of any approach for Krul but given he has been out for nearly a season with a very serious injury it has to be considered a risky approach to take.}

1.) 15 Jun 2016 10:58:26
Can't see us being interested in krull especially with being out for a year with serious injury goalkeeper is not a position we can gamble on and he would be a big gamble ed we have also been linked with Alex witsel for 30 million do u know if we have an interest in him and do u recon he be a good buy for us plus 30 mil for a player with 1 year on his contract seems a bit excessive to me.

{Ed002's Note - Axel Witsel was looking for a new challenge; Juventus, Milan or Olympiakos thought they may be able to provide in the summer of 2015. Juventus put an offer on the table that got as far as talks taking place - but it was not enough for a deal to happen. Milan stepped back due to cost - as Olympiakos have already done. Chelsea were approached in October but the requested deal was a little unusual and not suited to the club - they have since been approached again but are not keen. PSG were also approached and they may look at Witsel again but have other priorities. Spurs, Milan and Napoli have maintained a position that they "may" be interested in a deal but want clarification on the proposed transaction. In the interim, Roma and Bayern Munich has been approached and offered a deal that was thought that they may find acceptable in January - but they didn't – it is unclear if they will look toward a summer deal at this time. With the ban hanging over Atletico Madrid it would not be out of the question of seeing an offer from them in the summer. Roma may be an option – if the deal is right. Juventus may well return with a cash offer once they have secured sales. Don't rule out Spurs. I am not aware of interest being shown by Everton nor any approach to his agent or club - nor if he would be interested in a side not involved in Europe with limited prospects of getting in to the Champions League.}



15 Feb 2016 18:25:47
Apparently we are looking at a left back. Probably our strongest position in depth. It's Lukaku's brother. Make of it what you will. Seemingly Spurs also interested.

1.) 15 Feb 2016 18:47:51
Well we have 4 right wingers so why not another left back, although we only have one centre forward that is Martinez.

2.) 15 Feb 2016 21:13:43
he must be planning to offload one.

{Ed025's Note - have you thought that he might get a contract so that rom stays bretto?..its happened before mate..

3.) 16 Feb 2016 02:33:48
Totally right. smart thinking.

4.) 15 Feb 2016 21:59:00
ye I thought that as well ed but we don't need 5 lb and to br fair ed he not bad on be in Belgium squad few time.

We're going to win the league, we're going to win the league! La, La, la, la, la.

1.) 15 Jan 2017 20:00:58
That's the spirit NBTB

2.) 15 Jan 2017 20:08:52
Who disagreed with that? I'm deeply hurt there are people that think we are not going to win the league :- (



12 Jan 2017 14:10:24
Grumpy, what do you think? Will we take Ed002 to Bradford and get him sorted? Seems very frustrated on here. A release would do him the world of good.

{Ed002's Note - I have been to Bingley which is near Bradford.}

1.) 12 Jan 2017 14:50:21
LOL I think it would take a few trips NBTB.

No offense ED002, I'm grumpy enough for us both.

2.) 12 Jan 2017 15:06:54
No grumpy one good big one works wonders. The bigger the stress the bigger the relief! That's what I find anyway. Would Bingley do the trick?

3.) 12 Jan 2017 15:28:55
You are going to pay a little more in Bingley pal.

4.) 12 Jan 2017 15:41:28
Well NBTB has change of a fiver so that's the Bradford trip arranged

5.) 12 Jan 2017 16:35:24
I lived in Bingley for four years, great place to live but I don't remember meeting Ed002. I also worked in Bradford for 8 years in a Chemical factory. Now working their would make Ed002 really grumpy, I think we would be better leaving him working as a Rodeo clown.

{Ed002's Note - All I remember is a very good Indian restaurant - a very large place in the middle of teh village.}

6.) 12 Jan 2017 17:26:41
Ok NBTB I'll get a fiver as well, you and me can pay for the " Special entertainment " and ED002 can pay for the meal afterwards. Sounds like a plan .

7.) 12 Jan 2017 17:42:31
Looks like Indian so Grumpy :-)

8.) 12 Jan 2017 17:48:01
We'll tip into Bradford first Smit666. Have the rodeo there BlueMike76 ;-) Then back to Bingley for the Indian. That would top off a good transfer window.

9.) 12 Jan 2017 18:18:00
Now that's what I call a good day out,

10.) 12 Jan 2017 19:50:42
I can hear em vacuuming the red carpet as we speak.

Ed my reply to Degsy's post below, please tell you have it and it didn't get lost. Took a while to write. Definitely sealed it at the end. Sometimes posts don't go through. Very seldom but it does happen. Page has been updated a couple of times since.

1.) 03 Jan 2017 20:13:12
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Always there in tour history anyway NVTBSRTBTN.}



02 Jan 2017 19:36:05
Not too many posting about the win we had today. If we lost I'd say there would be 3 times more posts about it.

First 80mins were hard to watch but the last 13 were brilliant obviously. Funny when Valencia came on the game completely changed.

Imho Barkley was thoroughly deserved motm. He was right on the button. From the start he was playing ball and not over thinking things. Davies handled himself very well and looked a true professional. A mention also for Mori thought he was solid. I thought those 3 in particular were the best.

Lennon was the only one I thought was not in the game but at the same time he helped out in defense regularly.

Good win. Onwards and upwards. Well done to all involved.

1.) 02 Jan 2017 19:53:05
Hi NBTB my sentiments exactly, fantastic win, new lad was great and so to was Ross, i really would keep him and with a few new recruits in the window we would be buzzing good to get 7 points from 9 over the Christmas period with games coming thick and fast great result, good post mate GuernseyBlue.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 20:07:56
I like the look of that lad Davies, agree on Mori, at times his timing and reaction have been lacking rather curious for an Argentinian International. Yes Ross was in the game, think sometimes some of the critics don't understand Koemans comments on him, hence rumours of swap deals or being sold, when he is going nowhere.

3.) 02 Jan 2017 20:31:36
Isn't it funny how we are talking about winning a game in the last 10 minutes when the same players last season were only ever losing games in the last 10 minutes.

I wasn't at any stage nervous that we would lose today once we had scored. So much better under Koeman.

4.) 03 Jan 2017 05:39:43
I agree with you NBTB. Think Lukaku also deserves a special mention. Despite his little tantrum about the penalty, his hold up play and distribution in the second half was probably some of the best I can remember seeing from him.

IMHO him and Barkley often need to carry the team and get a lot of stick when they can't do it week in and week out which is not really fair seeing as both of them are still only 23.

5.) 03 Jan 2017 08:40:29
Some very good points in these posts. Barkley def man of the match. Davies looks composed. Valencia BIG contribution. I would add Mirallas and Baines both starting to look fitter again.

6.) 03 Jan 2017 08:44:05
Yes CToffee I was in two minds whether to mention him or not. He did have a good game and his effort level has improved a lot this last while.



26 Dec 2016 17:19:08
Good win. Joel for Motm.

Agreed Fanatic. Gana and Sch probably first choice CM. After that McCarthy is in line imho. Barry played very well today but is not long term at all. McCarthy could be.

Agreed GuernseyBlue. Age comes to us all but when we stop playing is different for each individual.

Never in a million years but I'll put a wild swap deal out there like Woburnblues the other day.

Seeing Southampton look like looking for a CB with Fonte leaving and probably an experienced one seeing VVD is still young. Jags for Charlie Austin.

As I said never in a million you years. Also remember Ed002 saying Austin wants to remain down south.

Fair enough. You make some good points Toffee Ace. It is mind games MEverton. Still don't agree with it.

It's the rawness of I suppose more than anything. There's a way to put it mildly. Koeman obviously knows what he's doing and doesn't care about what people think.

Why should he? He will be gone in the future. Whereas the club will have to deal with his choices after he's gone. I think the club will be in a better position when he's finished doing his thing. I have no doubt about that. I just hope the club can sustain with the spending it is doing and is being demanded.

The club is my main concern. I'm chuffed with everything. Long term I hope it never ends. Walsh knows what he's doing and is well experienced.

I am aware that Koeman was giving all involved a kick up the you know what. I just hope the club don't go too far. Long live Moshiri, Koeman and Walsh.

Totally agree with Ed002. I like and wanted Koeman. Only gripe I have with him is the comments he has been making about transfers and players. As Ed002 says unprofessional. Before anyone gets on my back I'll say it again I love Koeman and want as manager. Really like what he's done so far.

Martinez biggest downfall imho was sticking by Howard. Robles could develop into a very good keeper with time.

If I remember correctly Koeman mentioned before that he'd rather have 3 keepers of similar ability competing for the number one spot. Rather than one keeper being the clear number one with a less competent number 2.

Maybe he changed his mind on that but I'm almost certain he mentioned that in the window last summer.

sa90 you read my mind on Mirallas. Exactly my opinion on him in regard to the previous 2 managers. I would even add Martinez obviously fell out with him. All too regular he was on the bench. Then about 87mins into the game Martinez would put him on. Very frustrating for Mirallas. He even got sent off for a rash challenge after being on by Martinez with only a couple of mins to go.

No doubting his ability and I agree with what you say about him. I thought that the damage was done by our previous manager. I was impatient. I'm glad Degsy and Mirallas proved me wrong. I hope he kicks on from here.

Mondomac, £15m at least yea. £10m is being touted for Fonte and he is 33. I'm aware his position will tolerate older age but Mirallas isn't 30 yet. So at the very least I would expect £15m.

I totally agree with Degsy on where would we get a player that's better? Extremely difficult to do so. His confidence and overall mental state was battered under Martinez. Not using him and when he did only when a game was over. Martinez also had a similar effect on Distin.

They get paid well yes, but for the good of the team they should be kept with a positive attitude.
