I wonder how much of these rumours about Allardyce, Dyche, Moyes and co, are actually red herrings allowed to sneak out by the board to take the scent off the actual manager/ s they are making contact with. I just cannot believe that Morishi is prepared to outlay so much money on players and a new stadium, just to employ managers who at best will keep us mid table with the odd venture into europe every decade, or am I deluded in my thoughts.

1.) 02 Nov 2017 08:11:45
everyone but santa is been linked to the job, see hiddink is the latest suspect.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 08:39:55
We don't do red herrings. At this rate we will be getting linked to Iain Dowie.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 11:04:26
Go the whole high and get Alan Curbishley, Steve McLaren or Bob Bradley.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 16:35:14
has anyone mentioned harry yet.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 20:06:21
Everyone moaning about allardyce we desparately need him because we leak 3 goals a game and are going down ATM. He guarantees survival and then we can build from there by getting rid of the expensive rubbish Walsh and Koeman decided to bring in and add some real quality alongside the quality kids we have coming through.

6.) 02 Nov 2017 20:36:19
I agree, desperate times need desperate measures. The way we've lost the confidence in the team is alarming. Our best player tonight was a 17 year old and embarrassed schneiderlen. I think this job is too big for Dyche and wouldn't be confident in a foreign big name, I wouldn't be surprised if big Sam came tomorrow.

7.) 02 Nov 2017 21:52:44
As things stand even Ian Dowie wouldn’t take the job.

8.) 03 Nov 2017 08:13:45
a manager will not solve efc's problems. doesn't matter who they bring in he will soon realise that the squad needs replacing. we have 7 or 8 young and good players, beyond that there is nothing at the club. how officials at our club haven't seen the obvious is beyond me, without singling out any particular players it has been disappointing since unsy took over. when he did vlasic started to look like he was settling in at the club under what has to be said difficult circumstances first thing he does is drop him. and plays more or less the same players out of positions, as koeman did. they say a definition of madness is to keep doing the same thing and expect things to work out differently. i don't know what i expected from unsy, tbh. i thought he would see that rooney can't play up front and maybe drop morgan or gana and play rooney there or sig use vlasic and cal, niasse as forwards which they are but, so far rooney now sig up front shows he doesn't understand the problems we have. all season our whole forward line has dropped into midfield so we have been pressured more and more as games have gone on and managers tactics and formations are the problem. not since gordon lee have i seen an everton side this lacking in everyway possible. we have to be careful what we do next bring in the wrong guy and nothing will change several of our first team players cannot and must not be allowed to be on the same pitch at the same time. rooney mid no sig sig mid no rooney. gana no morgan, morgan no gana, we are presenting ourselves as a team to be attacked cause eventually all these players drop way to deep into the same positions and no longer look like they can kick a ball, falling over themselves. its a shame that unsy didn't see this right off the bat and start playing 4 1 3 2 with cal kev and vlasic up front, rooney or sig with benni and macca or gana or morgan as for the defence your guess is as good as mine. i think its clear unsy is not the man for the job which is a shame but he isn't coping with the big players at the club cause he is doing exactly what koeman did. there is a small change in personnel, but it's only a tweek on what koeman was doing when every fan can see we need a more radical solution. its not rocket science if someone is doing they're job poorly or having a difficult time they need dropping, its a football club. i am having a hard time believing we don't have any good defenders in our under 23 side that won prem 2 last year, surely a player who wins things and is hungry for a chance has to be better than what we put out. like i say shame unsy never got the point maybe we could be the first club of a reality tv show . the "ramsey esque" premier club nightmare where alex ferguson can go round clubs and watch games and they say "yeh you have problems. mainly your just sh*t. all joking aside things aren't as dire as they appear we need a manager who doesn't care what the under 23's are doing and wants to take them players from there and use them in the first team squad and one who watches games and can see what we all see and hopefully brings in the right players cause cal vlsaic and kev will be better off when we can defend and push out a bit.

{Ed025's Note - really good read that floats mate..

Easyjet regret to announce that flight EZY7103 to Madrid will be delayed by 30 minutes. This is due to Mr Farhad Morishi having to be checked in via a back door due to the huge gathering of press and media outside the terminal. Wonder why lol.

1.) 29 May 2016 14:01:29
It's departing on time.

2.) 29 May 2016 14:29:24
Can't tell if you are joking mate hope so not sure a billionaire is going to be flying easyjet :)

3.) 29 May 2016 14:34:34
Billionaires don't fly Easyjet Nick, he has gone by private jet, for more news.

4.) 29 May 2016 16:33:16
Hey lighten up boys it was just a bit of fun.

5.) 29 May 2016 17:43:33
Sorry Nick, I think we can say that we all want an appointment soon. It's the biggest one for years and REALLY needs to be the right one.

6.) 29 May 2016 17:51:40
Tough crowd Nick.

7.) 29 May 2016 19:17:37
Quite right Bobslad but we ain't going to make it. I am as eager as you that the board make the right appointment, but hey we can have some fun while we wait surely.

Good job I am not a comedian CToffee, I would died on stage lol.

8.) 29 May 2016 22:11:28

Time is moving on and we are still nowhere near announcing a manager. Do you think this will be cleared up this week or drag into next week? As time goes on do you think it less likely Silva will be the choice?



21 May 2018 20:08:44
According to BBC sport Emery to be the next Arsenal manager. So that's him off our list lol.

1.) 21 May 2018 20:42:35
Nah we don't do successful, we like to go for failed Managers, rather like watching a couple of girls that dig each other Everton think they can turn them.

2.) 21 May 2018 23:01:35
I'm in no doubt we had a sniff. Blew us off at the 1st flutter of our eyelids.

Out of our league.
For now.

3.) 21 May 2018 23:06:12
Feeling positive then DFS even before the new manager has got onboard.

4.) 22 May 2018 08:49:03
Southern Toffee. I said the same about Martinez but there again I supported the appointment of Koeman. Just I have a nagging feeling about Silva, he failed at Hull even with the new Manager boost and at Watford (their claim it was Everton's fault is just so much BS, they hired the bloke to do a job and he failed) . Not negativity just common sense assessment. I do not really have the answer but would have thought with the swiftness of change Moshri has instigated he has taken good advice from somewhere. After all is said and done, whoever Everton hire will have my 100 percent support, as it should.



16 May 2018 21:37:40
I am excited by all the news, but it will make my day when we get told the cleaning lady says "OMG not more bloody trophies to polish, and look at the size of the huge one next to the FA Cup and Premier League Title, something about Champions League or whatever. Never seen that one before. Better stock up on the polish" :-)

1.) 16 May 2018 23:14:17
The Polish are good cleaners.

An empty rimshot and cymbal echoing in an empty night club for that joke my friend.



09 May 2018 21:47:49
Well a loss or draw for us, and a win for Leicester on Saturday will see us in 9th place. Will the Sam lovers still be saying how well he has done? Will Sam still be boasting how well he has done? I remember not so long ago he targeted a european place and a cup win. My my how the mighty fall lol.

1.) 10 May 2018 08:36:56
this is the point the media miss, we shouldn't even be comparing ourselves to Leicester (all be it they have more recent success) but they got a manager in who steadied the ship and if they got eigth, it looks like he'll still be getting the boot.

2.) 10 May 2018 10:10:59
Hope you are right wblue mate, I would take finishing 8th any day if it gets rid of Big Sam, and we can move onwards

3.) 10 May 2018 10:40:22
9 th place.

4.) 10 May 2018 10:51:50
Good post wblue they seem to be in the same predicament as us and definitely GB 8th and Sam gone sounds ok to me aswell.

5.) 10 May 2018 11:38:21
Some people at our club seem satisfied with a top half finish this season.
The worry is that some people at our club would be satisfied with a top-half finish (and definitely not challenging the top, six) next season and beyond.
Have the club settled for mediocrity OR are they too afraid to risk aiming for the stars? If so, what’s the point? We know we’re not as good as several other teams at the moment, but surely we should genuinely aspire rather than fail with a whimper?
As long as a new DoF and new manager are taking us forward (alongside a new Chairman and new CEO? ) , then I’d tolerate a few seasons of gradual progression, but there has to be a clear plan (a vision, a target) for success that we can all buy into AND we can all see is getting nearer to fruition.

6.) 10 May 2018 11:46:36
Good post Bobby mate.

7.) 10 May 2018 12:30:30
Excellent post Bobby.

8.) 10 May 2018 12:54:52
Booby C, I personally feel the current priority is attracting a manager who can build for the long term and to get the new ground underway. I’m sure majority of fans would be happy if the club can, during that period progress or at least keep close to a top 6 position in the short term. Say in 2 years, then looking for definite progress into the top bracket.

9.) 10 May 2018 14:21:23
Good post Bobby. Can anyone honestly say they want to keep big Sam? I'm not a big Sam hater, I'm not a big Sam lover either but I will point one thing out in relation to your post above Bobby about finishing in the table.

Has anyone looked back at the poll that was done about six months ago on here asking posters to vote on our final position?

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I have faith the people behind the club. They are trying to make this club better. Despite what us ordinary Joe soaps think. They are not perfected and like us all will make mistakes but at the end of the day they want success every bit as much as we do.

Why do people constantly point the finger and say they should of done this and should of done that. Very easy looking in. As I said hindsight is a wonderful thing. Again have a look at the poll about our finishing predictions back six months ago. Then have a wee think about the direction the club is going.

10.) 10 May 2018 17:28:06
Nick don't be silly talksports jim white will be dedicating a hour of his show to Sam and how he single handily saved from going out the football league.

11.) 10 May 2018 18:34:07
ha ha :-) I wonder if Sam ever believes what he is saying or does it just roll out from his brain.

12.) 10 May 2018 19:52:25
He is the Peter Griffin (Family Guy) of football.



05 Mar 2018 22:07:55
Just for a bit of fun, and probably a tinge of desperation, I went on a site that let's you predict the fixtures to the end of the season. I got Man City, Man Utd, the dark side, Spurs and Chelsea as the top 5. Bottom 3 Huddersfield, Southampton, WBA with Huddersfield the highest with 32 points. We were 12th with 42 points and a BIG SIGH OF RELIEF THERE lol.

1.) 06 Mar 2018 09:22:38
what's the site NickB57 it would be interesting to see what other fans get is it poss to still get Liverpool relegated ha ha.

I won't be turning on Silva dark clouds. I believe he is the start of something new never before experienced by this club. If he fails, then it will not only be down to him, but the DOF and board above them. let's give this bird a chance to get off the ground and show what can be achieved. I only ever turned on one manager before and that was Moyes. Thought he was useless and still do. RK I felt sorry for. Martinez and Allardyce I never even wanted in the first place. I think this new regime will surpass all our hopes. COYB.

I am sure we will see more articulate type of players coming in to the squad rather than some of the thugs and hooligans we have had. I am also sure Silva will coax out the skill and encourage confidence in the players Allardyce froze out.

Reading a Dutch paper article, Brands said when leaving PSV his best move was appointing Cocu. Cocu has recently spoken about moving on. Maybe they will rekindle that relationship at Everton. Imagine Everton the first team on Merseyside to win the EPL. Oh the bragging rights! Oh the fun! Oh don't get carried away Nick :-)

This is why we all love the game. 22 players, 1 ref, and about 10,000,000 would be managers blabbing on as to why we were good or bad today. Every club has a Degsy and DFS. They do wear you down at times but we would not be without them really. I really feel positive this season and believe we could challenge Spurs and Arsenal in that top 6.

Great day and great work by Brand and Silva and co. Might take some time for all these to gel but it will be up up up and away once they do. Whether we go to the games or not let's get behind the management and team. If the players can't hear what we say they can read what we say. Let's be positive this season and give them the encouragement they did not get last season.

Hopefully after last seasons debacle we will take things easy in this pre-season transfer market. Brands is not a run away type manager and did, 5,6,8 years respectively at his last clubs. They seemed happy with his work so I expect us to be the same. He knows what is required and will be calling the shots. Silva working the coal face with the troops. If we get of to a bad start so be it. I just hope the board give them the time required.

We were never in danger of going down last year and they panicked. We are at a slight disadvantage in that we need to trim the squad to get others in, and that those we do not want, might not be wanted by other clubs either. I think we need to see at least 15 league games under our belt before we can start making judgement. I am sure after 15 games we will be in a good position. To many negative posts already writing us off. I am more concerned about what is happening off the pitch than on it to be honest.
