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.

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.

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?

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.

A question about Europa League qualification. If Hull bears Arsenal for the Cup, would Hull get the not over the sixth place Spurs?

If my math serves me well, 3 points in the next 3 matches secures some form of qualification, with a finish of no less that 5th. Win all 3 and let Arsenal stumble.well my question is moot.

New Blue in the U

{Ed025's Note - im not sure mate, but will check it out..

1.) 20 Apr 2014 23:50:39
Yes hull get the europa place as they win the cup. if they lose, the europa place goes to spurs if they are sitting in 6th at the end of the season and arsenal already qualify for europe which I think they are almost guarenteed, just a matter now of deciding which of us 2 are going to get cl and which will get europa.

{Ed002's Note - No. Hull.}

2.) I'm pretty sure that the winner of FA cup goes into europa cup, but if the winners have got a CL place, it is the runners up in FA cup that go into europa, NOT next league place

{Ed003's Note - correct}

3.) Hull are in Europe next season win or lose. We need 1 point to guarantee 6th and 3 points to guarantee 5th if Spuds and UTD win all their remaining matches. So beat or draw with Southampton and we're in Europe. Also puts pressure on the Arsenal as Newcastle are due for a win and I fancy Norwich to do them at home last match of the season

4.) If Arsenal wins the Cup, but falls to 5th behind Everton, then the Spurs would get Europa 6th place instead of Hull. Looks like the Spurs are big Gunner fans now.

At least that's my figuring.

5.) Guys

6th place gets Europa League next season due to Manchester City winning the League Cup, so no what happens in the FA cup final Hull will also get Europa League next season.


6.) If we get one more point we are guaranteed European football. It is the top 6 that get European football this season. Due to the way the league cup went, 6th place opens up. If, say for example, the final of the FA cup was Arsenal v Man City, then 7th place would have opened up, instead that 7th place now goes to hull as Arsenal have already qualified for European football.

7.) The team finishing 6th will get euro league place as city won the league cup and are in europe already

8.) 6th definitely has one from the league cup already.

If Arsenal win the cup and slip to 5th, they take the cup place because that skips a qualifier (higher ranked qualification spot) and 7th in the league opens up shafting Hull. but if Arsenal slip to 5th, that means we got 4th and don't give a monkeys about Europa League.

Over here in the US the game will be a national telecast on Fox tonight. Not just on Fox Soccer. Certainly they were looking for Juve and Real. Happy tonight to be the party crashed. Great opportunity for Everton. 8pm here. Sorry about that.

If Ronaldo is on his way to Moyes United perhaps he'll take a seat to tonight. Too bad Rat Boy Suarez is not the one going to Seattle

1.) Go to a website called ustv now, free to register and shows basic American tv free, so if its on Fox it will be live and free

I shall state the obvious.

We are not a top 2 team. The Spurs showed it, and I would like to think of them as the measuring stick. We were fortunate in the fall with that 1-1 draw at Goodison.

McCarthy should be ahead in the pecking order for midfielders. Thanks to Barry, though, he has been a part of this team improving and his efforts of the past should be applauded.

We have work to do. Other than Chelsea on the remaining schedule, I see ten games against equivalent or lesser competition. I do think we are capable of being a top six team.

Imagine if Bolasie had not been injured, or if Calvert-Lewin had not been derailed by injury.

Our Centerbacks need improving, and another forward would be wonderful to support Lukaku (again that could be one of the above injured players) .

I am not too frustrated about today, the Spurs are good.

Maybe by the time we play Chelsea they'll be too hung over from wrapping up the league a month early to play.

The reason we're not top four yet is consistency. The teams ahead of us find ways of winning even when they're not playing well, whereas we have too many off days and, when we do, we don't even scrap for it.

We've got the (part) owner, manager and money now to change it though it my opinion and are getting closer every week. If we can keep Koeman and Ron then I reckon we'll be fighting for CLand trophies next season.



01 Mar 2017 12:52:01
There is one formula alone that can settle the entire debate about the EL and CL next season.

In the immortal words of Al Davis, "Just Win, Baby! ".

That should solve it all.

Blue, whatever happens, No one can argue that the signs are positive around the club and we 'should' push on next season or two to be challenging properly for top 4/ 6 regularly.

Good view from up there then?

I enjoyed the exciting match between AFC Wimbledon and Sutton United on FS1 here in the States. I followed the Sky feed the Everton match today.

Honestly, I am not too disappointed in the outcome. It would be folly to think we would get much further in the Cup. I would rather be out to a PL team than a League Two outfit. Folks, we were not going to far this year in the FA Cup. We had a bit of a lucky draw last year, so no need for tears.

The positive of today: this team is not good enough. This is not a screaming indictment, calling for heads to roll and the manager to be sacked. Everton is a mid-table team, not pushing for a Top 4, and not relegation fodder. Changes will be made in consideration. 18 games left to build the team for next year.

Our keepers, Robles and Steklenburg are average. Not bad, just average.

Our defense will need an heir to Leighton Baines at LB. Funes-Mori is average. Jags, between age and injury, is waning. Ashley Williams will be solid for a few years. Coleman is good. Holgate, Pennington, and Browning are young an may do well. And what of Gallaway and Garbutt?

Gana is the crux of our midfield, and Barkley will have the rest of this season to show what he can do. Barry’s legs have aged quickly. Cleverly and Lennon are at best utility players for depth. Perhaps Dowell and Davies will get opportunities. I fear Basic and Oveido will never be PL quality, despite any vigorous returns to health. McCarthy will likely stay a while. Mr. Gibson…. paging Mr. Gibson….

Up front, Lukaku will ask for a transfer unless the team is successful and shows a dedication to building the team. I like Mirallas, but like Deulafeu, the brief flashes of brilliance are clouded by the abysmal defensive skills and lack of 90 minutes of endurance. If Bolasie can return to form in a year, it would be a bonus. Lookman deserves a look at some point. Calvert-Lewin, he will get a look again in March.
Mr. Kone tries, but he would do well in the Championship. Can we get Naismith back in exchange for Niasse?

Okay, as I wrote this note, waves of darkness and despair tried to overwhelm me. It did not. It’s all good.

We will see what happens the rest of the transfer period.

RK laces the boots back up and joins the central defense, scoring the match winner at Anfield?

I do believe this team can compete, and it will improve. RK will add to this team and reshape it in his image.

I honestly believe Everton will finish 6th. Honest.

By the way, Sutton United looked great for an non-league team. I think they can take Wimbledon in the replay 2-1.

Beat Chelsea.

May have to miss the first part of the game. My son's Under 8 team came back from 1-6 to win 10-7 and progress in the tourney. My son is left footed and should be a replacement for Baines at left back in about 15 years.

He can partner my son in defence. I will hover just in front of the back 4. Where are you playing New Blue? (by the way I am coming up to 60 years old but it does not stop me dreaming! )

2.) 06 Nov 2016 01:54:01
Georgia, about 3 hours south of Atlanta.
He may also make a good central midfielder.

We lost the second game 8-5 and went for pizza.

PL experienced striker, good if we play 2 up top. 40 million into a CB, team is better with 2 issues solved. Sign him up, line him up, and let the goals begin.

Higher ceiling than previous managers without te concerns of a relegation low floor. Again, MP handled the last half of the season with far more dignity than most. Perhaps his contract with City has to finish the year so he gets whatever buyout he is due.
