Folks, this was a darn good window for transfers. If the right striker wasn't available for something other than silly money, don't waste it. And what if he bought Mr. Perfect Nine and his hamstring goes ka-pow in training, will folks be mad that RK didn't buy a spare?

And if we bought Mr. Perfect Nine for 100 million, somebody would fuss that Calvert-Lewin and Sandro aren't getting playing time.

The team is better and deeper. Last year we won with Lukaku or lost without him. Now Plan B (3 or 4 players scoring 10 each) is Plan A.

Mark my words doom-Sayers: Everton will rock and roll this year. Now get positive and get behind the boys.

My sentiments exactly NBTB.

Ditto to that mate, far too many doom slayers on here at the mo.


4.) 03 Sep 2017 11:06:53
100% with you there. The negativity amongst some blues is astounding and embarrassing. We've been beaten once only this year in all competitions, is that not a good start?

{Ed025's Note - i tried to instill to you all the importance of patience when we started this journey pierre, this is basically a new team who dont know each others play patterns or moves, these things take time and rome was not built in a day...but if everton supporters were on that job im sure it would have been mate..


5.) 03 Sep 2017 12:31:08
Some posters on here have never experienced a successful period of time. But for those who have we can remember how bleak it was looking under Kendall until halfway through one cup match it all changed. The team until then had new players that weren't gelling.

But when it did, boy we looked unstoppable at times. I loved those days and will never forget the tangible swing of success in our favour.

So if it's looking a bit disjointed or the signings aren't looking to be as good as we'd hoped. Remember the last time we were the best there was. That should give you all hope.

{Ed025's Note - i remember it well ace, one goal from inchy and the rest is history mate..


6.) 03 Sep 2017 15:30:12
I to remember that game talk about lows and highs! But today Managers do not have the luxury of time, they live and die on a clubs success, which is why the top teams buy top players and look for instant results! I am happy we develop youngsters but as good a window as we had I'm sure RK is disappointed not to have bought in a new number 9, and money would have had nothing to do with it!


7.) 03 Sep 2017 15:53:21
Was also there, seems like yesterday, may R K get us back there cheers.


8.) 03 Sep 2017 18:43:23
Liverpool fans and Spurs fans go on about seasons of transition. This is our first genuine season of transition and people are moaning. We have a better squad than last season even without a Lukaku. We will consolidate 7th then push on next season.


9.) 04 Sep 2017 00:01:57
What's the story behind this? What game was it? What exactly happened until that game? Thanks.


10.) 04 Sep 2017 16:05:23
Everton v Oxford Utd 1984 League Cup. Adrian Heath equalised with 10 mins to go (saving Howard Kendall the sack) and we won the replay. We reached both the League and FA cup finals winning the latter and the rest as they say is history :-)


11.) 04 Sep 2017 18:47:59
Toffee Ace, I to remember that Team. That 80's side particularly in the tackle always doubled up, it was a wonder to watch. The pressure we managed in attack was also phenominal. The difference between then and now is increased speed, stamina and overall fitness means that system is very hard to play.


12.) 04 Sep 2017 22:06:47
Good post wakka! Some of my posts have probably been filed under the "doom Sayers" and negative inbox, but to be fair some also of what I have read is hope and praying beyond any rational thoughts. Better squad than last year, that only applies if the teams above you have not strengthend, and the one we finished closest too has, oh my word it has. People I was there in the 80s when we had x3, yes 3 years of brilliance whilst our neighbours beat us in both cup finals and I sat and watched us fall from this peak. I pray I do that things will change, but again we have MORE players who are currently in our squad who want out than players seemingly wanting to join us. All I ask is WTF is going on. (And don't get me started on Kitbag, Umbro or that kit we are wearing at home this season. NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM, folks NIL SATIS NISi OPTIMUM.


13.) 04 Sep 2017 22:22:19
All correct above and to add to the posts, we brought in two old heads in Reid and Gray, could Rooney be the one to fire this team up like they did, big ask but you never know.

As I sit here poolside by the beaches of South Carolina I cannot believe that this is my Everton. I believe that one more forward player who can score goal is all we need and we are much better than last year.

I watch some highlights of Dembele from Celtic play and it seems he tends to score only one of the defenders are falling backwards. He appears quick but that may just be the quality of the defenders and the Scottish league.

It appears we have a great group of young forwards ready in the next 1 to 2 years to play a big role in the Premier league. For me I would rather have Oliver Giroud as he is a known quantity and will make us instantly better with very little downside in the next 2 to 3 years.

And as I have seen some posts on other sites I don't care how much Everton spends and nor do I care what the resale value of a player is in 3 to 4 years.

In six weeks I think the top four should be more afraid of us then we will be of them. COYB.

Just a crazy thought while we all wait. And wait. And wait some more.

interesting article from Foxsports about Simeone pondering his future. Apparently he wants to coach at Inter Milan before his career is over.

Simone to Inter and Mancini to Everton?

Louis van Gaal is about to be unemployed. How about LVG as a Director of Football and Big Dunc as the onfield manager?

Yeah, just trying to bide the time until the next manager is announced, likely after June 1st.

New Blue in the U

{Ed025's Note - there is biding time...and beating yourself up with a big stick mate..


1.) 26 Apr 2016 20:21:29
Actually I'm being 1/ 2 serious. Moyes took over, as I recall, an aging Manc team and wasn't able to turn the team around. With LVG and two years of work, he has a likely FA Cup this year, an outside shot at the CL this year, and CL last year, and emerging young talent (Martial) .

This is an odd year with LC and the Spurs 1 and 2.

At least I'm not posting about Brenda taking the job.


2.) 27 Apr 2016 11:37:56
LVG too old for me.
Heaven forbid we get Buck Rodgers, just another chancer like the one we have now. Can you imagine the Welsh Xavi in an Everton shirt. Even I could get a team to almost win the Prem if I had Suarez.
OMG no, not Rodgers.

Crazy thought this morning after reading an ESPN article.

Usmanov owns 30% of Arsenal. He is a supporter of Wenger. Usmanov can't get the time of day from Stan Kroenke.

Might Usmanov sell out, then buy a stake in Everton with Moshiri, then RM gets his one way ticket back to Catalonia.

The next manager. Wenger?

{Ed025's Note - i cant see arsene managing any other prem side than arsenal myself NB..


1.) 09 Apr 2016 13:17:41
I think Wenger will retire mate when he leaves Arsenal?


2.) 09 Apr 2016 13:30:41
Hey, he could bring in a hand picked successor, grab a big payday, and set Everton up for long term success. Just some crazy thinking early this morning. A computer generated Yoda could out coach RM at this point.


3.) 09 Apr 2016 16:10:48
Wenger will most likely retire or take the France job after Arsenal. No chance he goes to another Prem team.


4.) 09 Apr 2016 16:47:37
Bring in Koeman from the saints he can bring forester, mane and pelle with him 😇😇.

{Ed002's Note - Another which won't happen. Koeman has a very good idea what available options there will be when the time comes at the end of next season.}


5.) 09 Apr 2016 22:20:14
Wenger has been in charge of one of the top clubs, with all the financial backing he could wish for, but, has not won the title in the last 10 years, so thanks, but no thanks.

RK is 28 to 1 and Brenda is 3 to 1.

Perhaps Roberto Martinez can take charge of one team a year, get them relegated, and presto, Everton is in the top 4.


 

 

20 Apr 2018 13:24:37
Not an endorsement or a wish, but a random thought.

With Moshiri and Usmanov's ties to Arsenal, would we see Wegner as a DOF and Arteta as Manager?

Just wondering (I have no opinion on this, so I would love to be enlightened) .

I was thinking this too. I think it would be an excellent idea. I can't see it happening though.

That's the equivalent of saying because Sam is our manager can we have gravy sold with our pies.


 

 

02 Apr 2018 22:45:30
Okay, six games left in the season. It has not been a fun year.

First, for the last five years I do not believe our preseasons have been challenging enough.

Second, I do not believe the last 3 managers (Unsy not included) have been fountains on inspiration and leadership. (If I'm off base, please feel free to correct me. )

Third, our new owner wants to win, but is a novice to the football business as the lead owner / investor. But companies make bad hires every day, and leaders know when to call it a day, cut bait, and start over.

Fourth, we have had a lot of injuries.

Fifth, no striker or RB or LB cover.

Sixth, major acquisitions took too long to bring in. I expect it to gel after a full preseason.

Seventh, the PL is truly six teams and 14 also rans. Despite our awful year, we stand ninth with 5 of our six games remaining very competitive, so 7th or 8th is not out of reach.

Eight, we have played some youth: DCL, Tosun, Davies, Holgate (for a time) , Kenny, Beni B. Lookman is getting work in Germany, and others are out on loand. Should be an interesting pre-season.

Ninth: Let's see what the management team is next year. Let's cheer for the team for the rest of the season, and let's get ready for a rocking ride in 2018-19.

New Blue in the U

{Ed002's Note - I expect Lookman to leave.}


1.) 02 Apr 2018 23:08:47
I wish him well then. We have seen a good number of young plays come through the last few years (Galloway, Fatbutt, etc. ) yah look so promising in limited action, so it is our natural tendency to view their potential as an indication to how the player WILL be game in and game out in the future

Sure, I’d love to see our U-21’s all graduate to the first team and lead us to CL football. Never going to happen. We fans understandably over romanticize our teams. It leads us to expect too much. We’re a mid table team that hopes to work our way into the top 4 every few seasons. We have potential.

Next year will be better.


2.) 02 Apr 2018 23:15:23
I truly meant Garbutt and not fatbutt. Pesky spell check (or my third beer of the evening at the beach)

I appreciate the Ed002 reality checks.

Now let’s go beat them pesky Reds and turn Klopp’s grin into a massive frown.

5.) 03 Apr 2018 10:42:33
If Lookman isn't bought back into the fold and given the feeling he's wanted. Well that will sum up what a joke we are.
We should be building the team around him and Davies et al.

The rumours of homesick are crap because why go Germany if true?
He came to us because we play the Kids. He's at the right club.

It'll be a. massive slap in the face if he is allowed to leave. I'm sure he will be very happy to play 30 games all comp next season.

Bolasie I like him as a person. And he did out in a few standout performances at Palace. Never done it for us. He's a woeful player. I'd have a raw Lookman all day over Bolasie.

Ed02 that's really got up my nose. I hope you're wrong or just on the wind up. The kids going to be a mega star.

{Ed002's Note - Why would I "wind you up" - you don't seem to get that players come and go, they are no more than transient employees of a club. Other clubs being interested in a player is common - Everton are interested in players - do you think they should stop scouting players, trying to buy the best ones? It is not a "slap in the face" to let a player leave. It seems pretty hopeless trying to tell many of the Everton supporters anything about transfers, you just don't seem to grasp how the game works.}


6.) 03 Apr 2018 12:35:00
Cant see why the ed002 would want to wind us up we are quite good at doing that to each other as it is. As for Lookman staying or going that will be down to the management and coaches. If they want him i'm sure he will stay after all he is contracted to 2021, highly unlikely to put in a transfer request. Definitely one for the future hope he stays.


7.) 03 Apr 2018 12:56:28
Of course as Ed says players come and go, if a Club wishes a player to remain, then the incentive should be sufficient for him to remain. In Lookmans case, personally I just do not get it, to me the lad is a wonderful player with bags of potential still to be released. We/ I do not see what is going on behind the scenes and/ or training pitch. But obviously Managers/ Coaches must be seeing something in not only Lookman's case but the likes of Klaasen as well to not include them in matchday Squads. Pity about Lookman but as Ed says he is expected to go.


8.) 03 Apr 2018 14:42:02
Have to think which of our players would get in top 5 teams. I think Coleman is only one. Very difficult to say that but realistically we are 8 good players off. That’s a left back, 2 centre backs, all the midfield and one striker. Fighting for 5-7 is realistic I’m afraid. I thought Walcott was pointless signing and not impressed with bolassi klasson Keane shniderlin. That lot is 100 million - we can’t just chuck another 200 million at it. Need a manager in that will be there for 5yrs minimum to stop mid match of Moyes Martinez Koeman allidyce players. They seem incapable of playing together.

Does the PL have enough yellow cards for Everton? He is good for some goals and some attitude, crossing our midfield will be a lot more dangerous. It would let Gana Play his game and Felli me the heavy. At the right price it could be a good short term fix.

No joy here, as I am mainly concerned with our place at the table. RK looked good on paper, but sometimes it just does not work out. Once you've lost the office staff (or team) , no manager (however talented) can be successful.

Of course managers in any line of work are judged by results.

I have no earthly idea who would take the job, but hopefully a fresh start will do the team good. Perhaps Ross will stay.

As an aside, without two unpopular players, we would have less goals than Palace.

Reflecting on last week, I think he was the only player who really put in an effort last week. He was run over many times, picked himself up, and got back into the play.

He would be a great squad player, and I like his attitude, but 12 million is a bit much. Perhaps we can buy him for 1/ 2 that to bolster the squad (no Niasse jokes today) .

I really thinking he worked hard to impress RK. I hope Valencia finds a place in the PL and has great success against the Reds.
