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.

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.

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.

The season as a competitive entity is long over. Should we bench our loaners and play the youth (DCL on top with Lookman and Ricky right and left) ; sell Gana for cash, play Davies, and let Kenny, Digne, Kean, and Mina on the back. Will Gomes and Zumba want to be here next year? If no, then we may be better off blooding the young players. Let Bernard try as a number 10.

This would be better than loaning the rest of the youth out. Maybe we can have a foundation for next year.


4.) 19 Jan 2019 17:17:55
I had Liverpool and Crystal Palace up on the main television while watching Everton on my iPhone. Crystal Palace went toe to toe with Liverpool and played very well. I don’t even see is beating Crystal Palace.

We have no energy. We have no spirit. We are very boring. There’s always next year.


5.) 19 Jan 2019 17:20:13
Kind of David Moyes boring sans victories.

Consider our potential starting eleven. Only Coleman remains from the end of 2016 and the RM era. Overall the quality is better than 2 years ago (other than that Lukaku fellow) .

I’m encouraged.

By the way, I have a hard time with the phrase “deadwood”. Any player that has been listed in that category is certainly in the top 5 percent of professional footballers worldwide. Unless a player is obviously lazy or unfit or unmotivated, a less harsh phrase is needed.

How about a less caustic phrase, like “surplus” instead.

Best wishes to Besic. Great year ahead.

The players are employees so the terminology should be 'required' or 'no longer required'

There will be a change in the board room.
There will be a change in the roster.
There will be a change in the manager.

So the question to ponder for the next two months is. who?

Other posters and Ed's have greater insight, but from my standpoint, do we want to bet the house on an up and coming manager like Silva or Fonseca?

Or do we want someone who has managed at the top levels, won silverware, and has been in the PL.

From what I can say, and this is my opinion, destined for thumbs down for certain, but I would rather buy Rafa off Newcastle.

1. PL experience
2. He's done wonders at Newcastle despite a cheapskate owner.
3. You know exactly who you are getting and the style of play and management.

The margin between 8th and relegation fodder race was too close this year for comfort. We can't hand the keys to a rookie or inexperienced driver.

The team needs wholesale changes (roster and strategy and tactics and execution) . The only fellow I can think of big enough to do it is some like Rafa (or similar experienced manager) .

RM and RK and SA (he kept the team up in reality, though calling it "not pretty" is and understatement) were short term sucess with eventual failure) . No more roller coasters, get a solid manager with experience.

And bring Lookman home. Tosun up front and Walcott on the other side. Gylfi to feed them, Gueye and Davies in the middle, and Coleman, Holgate (or someone else) , Keane, and Baines (perhaps someone else) . Pickford in goal. Not a bad starting place. but not a top ten roster for next year.

New Blue in the U

1.) 14 May 2018 09:05:18
I'd say Holgate to start over keane if we bought another centre half in, think he's already better than keane who looks like his level is similar to Williams, teams that sit back and are pummelled with long balls in.

On Sky it says Big Sam is an 80 to 1 favorite for the Arsenal job. that good huh?

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.

Merry Christmas fellow Blues from Georgia. I’m planning to unwrap that great big box from Marco Silva for a great 2nd half of the season (40 points) . Maybe a top shelf striker in my stocking.

C’mon folks. Both Martina and Niasse busted their tails for the team last year. Thanks to both men, and I hope their careers progress.

Wow what a difference 6 weeks makes.

We played with purpose. We played with organization. We played with passion. These are three things wereare missing last year. The first goal was an excellent shot after a bad ball placement on the free kick. The second goal was a defensive lapse but that is why we went and found 2 More Center backs at the deadline.

I believe we have seen Jags last start. Evertonians should give him a great round of applause for his years of dedication, blood, sweat, and tears. Thank you, Phil.

Now what will Big Ric’s nickname be?
