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.

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.

With Marco Silva sacked do you think we will cut short Sams contract and get him before anyone else does? He was top choice not so many weeks ago.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 21 Jan 2018 20:28:51
No mate, but that's not to say things won't change come end of the season.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 20:45:47
I would have Silva tomorrow, let him be the No 2, Recent stat : One shot in 251 minutes on target isn't my idea of football at any level, looking at Sams Interview yesterday to me he looks out of his depth already.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 23:30:36
Whoever is manager, the club has to increase its commercial income to be able to recruit and retain better players. That’ll determine how successful we become. Despite Moshiri’s involvement, we have miles to go commercially AND our recruitment has been questionable.



26 Nov 2017 22:29:39
I heard DU saying today the players are happy and having fun on the training ground. Well maybe if we had them working industrial type hours for a few weeks they may not be laughing too much. Up at 5-6am, off to work at 6-7am, start at 7-8am lunch 12-30 to 1pm, finish at 4-5pm, rain, hail, or snow. They might value their luck in being footballers and understand that, the people who pay their wages do that 5-6 days per week and them pay to see them produce rubbish. Whoever comes in needs to be tough and drive these prima donnas.



05 Nov 2017 18:35:47
Great win. Well done to the boys to come back from 0-2 down. Really pleased for Niasse and DCL to score. Oh and thanks to Tom Cleverley for missing the pen lol. Did us a huge favour there.



02 May 2017 19:18:57
This might upset a few but I would get rid off Lukaku while there is still interest in him and his price is high. We had a goal scorer once who hit 30 goals and we won bugger all. I would rather use any money we get and buy a good target man and attacking midfielders who can play off him. I would much rather see 5-6 players weighing in with 10-15 goals each plus the target mans goals as against relying on one man to get most of them. We have some decent talent but I wonder how many of them are starved of showing their true abilities due to Lukaku. To me Lukaku plays for himself and not Everton. definitely need a good keeper too. Heaton has impressed me a lot this season. Overall to say we have got 7th place with what we have is a good sign for the future. Just wonder how much better we could have done without all this Lukaku and Barkley contract business.

1.) 02 May 2017 20:38:00
You may be right Nick. I would like to see a few more players weighing in with goals. And that is indeed what happened when we sold Lineker. I'll put trust in RK and SW to get this right this summer. With or without lukaku.

2.) 02 May 2017 20:56:43
Love your post Nick, I thought I was a minority of one on Lukaku, he is not a team player, goes missing too many times in the big games, I hope We take a big offer in the Summer so we can rebuild, if Lukaku stays and we start poorly he will be wanting away before end of August disrupting our new season only weeks old, take the money and bring in someone who wants to play for Everton, not just anyone, a proven unselfish striker.

3.) 02 May 2017 20:58:17
Post of the Day nick, could not have put it better myself.

4.) 02 May 2017 23:22:05
5-6 players weighing in with 10-15 goals each plus the target man's has not happened for any team for many years. That's Everton 1985 standards (who wouldn't be happy with that again? ) No team this season has any more than 3 players plus the target man scoring 10+ goals in all competitions. We may or may not be better off with a less selfish target man but let's set achievable expectations for our club.

5.) 03 May 2017 05:59:14
I must be in the minority then. I would never get rid of a player, as you put it, unless he had severe problems and/ or we had immediate replacements. Lukaku has already said he wants to leave. That is different from "getting rid" of him. I believe we should continue to do all we can to keep him with us. Only if we have players lined up to replace him should we sell him. We have all seen in the previous transfer windows how difficult it is to get top quality players to sign for us. I believe signing 5 or 6 players who will each score 10 to 15 goals is dreamland. Almost an impossible task. Even 2 or 3 players of this calibre are unlikely to want to come to Everton for many reasons even if their clubs are willing to sell. I would ask how many players who fall into this category have signed for us in the last 5 seasons? I honestly think you are all talking about something that just is not going to happen. I don't wish to be confrontational with you, but signing 2 players of this quality will be a difficult ask. but 5 or 6 is just not going to happen. Please suggest the 5 or 6 you think would sign for Everton.

6.) 03 May 2017 08:03:46
I agree with Degsy on this. There aren't many wingers scoring 10-15 a season, except at the top sides. Sigurdsson, an attacking midfielder, has scored 9 goals this season in a poor side. So for a better team you could reasonably say he will get 10-15 goals. His cost? £30m. So to get 5 or 6 of him would cost at least £150m. Add to that the GK and defenders we need and you're looking at £250m. There is no way we have that sort of money. Another consideration is, if you buy that many new faces, how do you bed them into the team when due to Europa our season starts late July?



19 May 2016 21:34:42
It really pees me off to constantly be told we are a small club and will not be of interest to a top manager. WTF, we have history, success is in our DNA. We can still attract big crowds and could match most others for attendances with a bigger stadium. Villa go down and it's oh how terrible a club the size of Villa relegated. Newcastle go down and it's the same. Mention Everton and the pundits all say well I am not sure Pellegrini, or Mourhino, or whoever will see them as a big enough club. Now BBC gossip quotes that Koeman not interest in us as he thinks he can get a bigger club in twelve months' time. Well Mr Morishi I guess we will know soon just how big you want us to be by who you take on as manager. Money talks. Even the smallest club can look big if the coffers are there to spend. Please don't get a second rate manager with little or no success just because he can manage on ten bob. We have lived in the shadows of the reds for long enough. Let the worm turn and NSNO mean something again. Moan over lol COYB.

Good post Nick, it's due I'm afraid down to the current generation who accept what I as an oldie will never be satisfied with.
Nil Satis? Either drop it or adopt it.

{Ed025's Note - lets hope we can revitalize it this season mushy..

2.) 19 May 2016 22:03:53
I feel your passion Nick and I agree.

It might just be me, but I have a feeling that Mr Moshiri would have been thinking about a new Manager, and may have even picked his target (not targets) way before Bobby was sacked.
He's very quiet and I for one love that, it proves he's not just on an ego trip.

3.) 20 May 2016 11:05:35
Nick I'm sure if Everton had gone down people would have been saying the same as they are about Villa (not so much Newcastle because they've been down before) . Maybe more so as we have spent more seasons in the top flight than any other club and are now one of only 6 clubs to have been in the prem every season.
But we do need a sense of perspective. Even with Moshiri on board, we as a club are 8th in the prem on pretty much any measure that matters: average attendance, 8th; % off stadium filled at matches, 11th; turnover, 8th; wage bill, 8th; value of club, 7th; transfer values, 8th; wealth of major shareholders, 8th (we were 2nd bottom before Moshiri) .

Account for other big European clubs and we are a 'top 20 in the world' team. That is reality, and it's a positive reality! But we are not one of the very biggest clubs. Even with a new stadium, we can't "match anyone" for attendances - far from it. London clubs have a huge advantage on that. We can't outspend Utd, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs or Liverpool - far from it. No manager is interested that we were a great side who won things 30 years ago.

In the 80s, no manager cared that Blackpool had a great side in the 50s. It's where we are today that matters. And by rights we should get one of the top 20 managers in the world. Anything much better is showing ambition, especially since most of the very best ones are newly installed at clubs. Who are the top 20 managers? That's hard. Pep is obviously a great manager but not because he won the league with Bayern, who have twice as much financial clout as their nearest rival. Pellegrini is at the 2nd richest club in the country and 5th richest in the world, who finished 4th in both league and champs league.

That's OK, no more. Favre has massively overachieved with every club he's been at, including getting champs league with a team who were bottom when he took over. That shows quality. Koeman is not in that bracket for me. He was pants at Valencia, he was ok at Ajax, he's done well at Southampton, but so did their previous managers. I'm more convinced by de Boer, although less so if he's not accompanied by Stam and Bergkamp.

It looks like Emery wants to stay at Sevilla, which is a shame - he is without a doubt one of the top ten managers in the world. Mourinho clearly is top 3 in the world and as such is looking for one of the biggest 5 or 6 clubs in the world. We are Everton, we are proud, but realistically, we are not that by any measure.

4.) 20 May 2016 11:07:25
It is interesting that these "pundits" are the ones not being offered manager jobs. Hence ending up on TV.

I have to agree with Eddy. Bad times could be ahead. Oh I feel like breaking into song "There may be trouble ahead" :-)

If we have to have a British manager then Dyche for me please. Looking at Burnley on MOTD last night they looked a well oiled unit.

When you are 8th in the table and 5 points of 4th, would you want to leave a club at this stage for one just above the relegation zone. Whether he is good or not, if I was Silva I think I might wait until January before jumping ship to another club. By then I might be walking the plank myself or being highly sought after.

Blue Mike are you suggesting that in order to support a team you must have been born in the town or lived there? I have never lived in Liverpool. Newport, Runcorn, Blackpool, Accrington, Madrid, Berlin, and Newport again, but never Liverpool. I reckon I have spent more money supporting Everton than fans who live local as every home game was an away game for me.

I am not sure it is just that we have no patience, more a case of we buy players who are capable and then put them under a manager who cannot play the standard of football the players are used to. I quite agree with BigH. Potential players should consider what happens when they get here, and also see who is manager first before even agreeing anything. The wheel is turning. Fat Sam will go, leave us with rubbish, the new man will buy more, we won't have patience, sack him, Fat Sam 2 will come in, repeat repeat repeat.

{Ed002's Note - You are right, the Toxics like you will continue to drag the club down by providing absolutely zero support and trashing all of the staff and the players. It seems to be a Merseyside thing. Perhaps Moshiri could find some decent supporters?}
