So if the Sams and company are gone, does that leave Dunc in charge of the first team for now?

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.

Good post New Blue in the U.

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..

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.



04 Jul 2017 11:23:51
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.

It will take a huge sprint at the beginning, considering our start-up.

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.

{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.

If MC gets a CL ban that goes into effect this coming 19/ 20 season, would Everton possibly slide up into the EL?

Can we get Yarmolenko this time around?

{Ed002's Note - No, Everton were not good enough to qualify.}

1.) 16 May 2019 14:10:26
That’s okay. Thanks Ed002. Would rather focus on the domestic cups this season in any case.

2.) 17 May 2019 16:46:14
Totally with you finishing 8th this season was better than 7th let’s concentrate on league and domestic cups were not ready to mount challenge in Europe and close gap on top 6.

May the great football Spirits make his ankle whole again, at least after Sunday.

Can't buy a spurs shirt for love or money on merseyside today 😁.

Looks like 8th place. Oh well, that leaves next week as our “Cup Final”. 🤣

Maybe the Wolves will get a ban because of the hideous mask their home fans wear.

New Blue in the U

1.) 04 May 2019 17:46:36
Ah it just wasn't meant to be.
I'm not bitter though and I'll be the first to say that Wolves fully deserve 7th place. They have had some really good results this season especially against the top 6 and unlike most newly promoted sides they've gone to places to win. Ultimately the banana skins against Fulham and Palace have cost us dearly towards the end. There's always next season so fingers crossed.

2.) 04 May 2019 19:29:16
But if Galloping Meese of Watford (pleural for moose? I know they’re the Hornets, so why do they have a moose on the badge? ) beat MC in the FA Cup, finishing 7th wasn’t important in any case.

Finish the season on a high note, beat another top 6 club, and start the whole season again in 2 months.


3.) 04 May 2019 19:45:03
Wolves had a season in the championship with NES to get used to his style of play, we have had to use this season to get accustomed to Silva's style which we have finally done with the form at the back end of the season. We need some decent accusations to add to what we have already and we can hit the ground running. Well done to Wolves and consistency has been key but I do feel they will be found out next season as their style relies on the counter attack and once teams have figured this out. Onward and upward next season and hopefully put in a serious challenge to the top 6.

4.) 04 May 2019 20:37:45
It’s funny how consistency is the reason for Wolves success this season compared to our inconsistency, yet they are only a few points ahead. I’d hardly see United season as consistent yet they are far ahead of Wolves. Bottom line for me is they beat us fair and square at Goodison and were good enough for a draw at theirs. I would think that if there were another 5 games to play we would overtake them, but they have 7th in the bag and fully deserve it.

Will they suffer second season syndrome next year? Don’t care really as we will be above them if we continue to improve and hold onto our loan signings.

5.) 05 May 2019 08:17:27
Wolves have done well with injuries and have played well throughout the season. If we hadn't fallen asleep for 3 months we would have finished in and deserved 7th.

The test for them will be can they keep their top players. Will any of the big boys come sniffing around Neves and Jota.



04 May 2019 14:41:43
How will the Tottenham red cards affect their line up for next week’s game?

Didn’t know how the intervening CL match with Ajax would affect our match.

If so it is good business. Likely has a sell on clause as well. I will have faith that Silva feels they can let him go. I remember how we felt about Garbutt, Galloway, and others in the past. Besides if he wants to go, you can’t have an angry player seething on the bench.

Only three numbers should concern Supporters: total points on the table, goal differential, and how many goals we score to beat Liverpool.

I’ll leave the finances to someone else on the Board Not my money to worry about.

Is there an update on what would need to happen for 7th place in the PL getting a Europa League slot? Would it be a play in game during the middle of preseason like before?

He typifies the sulking striker. On a fee maybe, but he chased glory at ManU when he could have been a essential cog in RK’s squad.

Has he flamed out like Benteke, who looked like a world beater 5 years ago?

I do wish him well. Everton was well paid for him, not that we spent it wisely.
