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..

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!

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.



09 Apr 2016 13:06:50
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.

Considering today’s result, will there be a canonization of the future Saint Sam Allardyce at the nearby St Marks Church?

If it is Big Sam, then so be it. Nothing to do but for us to get behind the team.

But folks, we need to separate feelings for the man from the record. He has extensive PL experience. He keeps teams up for the next season. He has worked at clubs with very little cash. He is apparently known for shoring up shaky defenses. He has never truly had a team with resources.

He will bring in his own staff. They will evaluate the team on hand, separate the wheat from the chaff, and bring in necessary players, and light a few chimney fires in some player's posteriors.

We are not a marquee club at the moment, and I do not fault young up and coming managers for running from us like we have measles.

If you are sick, you might need a surgeon. I would rather have a son of a snot, egotistical, gruff, grumpy (no offense to our own Grumpy) , ugly, and old yet competent surgeon than a really nice fellow who just finished his training who says the right things to say but may not know a premier league scapel from a bit of gauze.

Heck, it could be fun watching grumpy (no offense to the afore mentioned Grumpy) Sam stalking the sidelines giving grief to any players who do not put in a quality shift.

If he is successful, perhaps some folks might find a little room in their heart for this big grump (again apologies to the resident Grumpy) .

Great post New Blue. I have to admit I am not keen on the appointment however I am keen to get the Club stabilised and for this season you know that is what you would get from Big Sam.
What I do hope for though is that we turn this season round and move up the league and that Big Sam is only a short term thing.



02 Nov 2017 20:19:04
I think we stink. I don’t think I can make it any more clear than that. Even if we could clone Jose I don’t think it would help.

I suppose the next Manager should just pick 11 names out of a hat to choose the starting lineup.

At this rate are the only goals we will score will be own goals.

Nil satis nisi optimum or abandon all hope ye who enter. What is the team motto?

Rant complete, now for a 40k bike ride to help me forget.

Just banter, but.

What manager worth a grain of salt is available at a time like this?

Who would leave a job in mid-season from a top half PL club or top of the table Championship club) to take on relegation fodder (a blossoming dumpster fire) that is Everton?

What proven and successful PL experienced manager is currently unemployed at this time? The good ones tend to hold down a managerial job.

Yeah, Mr. Mo could throw a ton of dough and see if some Joe with give it a go. but they'd be here for only the dough and rain or shine they'd just blow off to the another show next year (like RK was planning) .

(Rhyming humour is a sign of football desperation)

Heck, just give the job to Big Sam. He has experience, he keeps teams up, and then we can find the next great successful manager next time. And he fails, we can just add to the list of teams that let him go.

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.

The only thing "concrete" now is that our club is wearing figurative cement shoes in the East River and the Toffees are sleeping with the fish.
