I think we need to get a grip on things, ' an announcement on barkleys future will be made Monday '. 'Everton will no longer make an an announcement on Monday '. Heard nothing today. We're becoming a laughing stock. If we wanna become a top respected side again who are going to attract decent players we need the club to be run properly, I've got a bad feeling that things aren't running smoothly behind the scenes.


1.) 24 May 2017 06:17:40
so let me get this right we sign new multi million sponsorship deals we seem to be on the up and yet because we don't release a statement regarding Barkley we are a laughing stock and things aren't running smoothly Jesus behave will ya.

2.) 24 May 2017 07:14:34
For goodness sake-please try to keep some sort of perspective on these events! I think Everton FC are a long long way from "becoming a laughingstock" . On the contrary, as has already been said, we tend to be seen as a well run club which generally does the right thing and is making genuine progress. None of us know what is happening with Ross Barkley-and that's probably just how it needs to be!

3.) 24 May 2017 08:26:11
Some blues just like to criticise the club whatever they do. You not think Barkley and his agent may have something to do with this?
You really expect it to be like TF deadline day as the clock ticks down to 'right he's sold'

This should be the most exciting summer we have had in many years. Put the negativity away and try to enjoy it.

4.) 24 May 2017 08:55:14
Get a grip, GuernseyBlue.

5.) 24 May 2017 09:33:20
Sorry boys. That post was put up after a good few pints. Just want this rom and ross situation sorted so we can move on with or without them.

6.) 24 May 2017 09:53:15
😂😂😂😂 beer and football 2 things that bring our inner deepest passion out we have all been there including me tonight as my kopite mate is coming around to watch the final which should be fun as after 10 or so beers we like to let's just say have a lively conversation about just how deluded they are.

7.) 24 May 2017 09:53:55
To be fair if you read what Koeman actually said vs what the media reported they are two completely different things.

He said that he was meeting with the board on Monday and that a statement would be made. He said the meeting was happening on Monday, not that a statement would be made on Monday.

8.) 24 May 2017 12:29:00
Sorry I agree with Olleblue but not suprised at you all defending the club it's like as if you are ridiculed if you say anything negative .
I posted something similar on Everton Banter
Sorry but we are extremely slow at making any statements we dither we make transfers at the last minute that go wrong .
As for Barclay EFC should have given him his marching orders 5 pm on Sunday night no excuses he should have signed months ago
He will find as I am now hearing he has lost sympathy with nearly all supporters.

9.) 24 May 2017 13:09:04
The only reason to make a statement would be to say he's signed the contract. If he hasn't then releasing a statement to confirm that would drastically reduce what we'd get for him because potential suitors would know that he wants out and we want him out.

Based on that, if we did make a statement to say he hasn't signed a contract and we're selling him, I'd say that would make us a massive laughing stock.

Can't understand why people are so concerned about what happens with him. I'd rather have £25m in the bank to spend on a player who turns quicker than the QE2 anyway. Even if he does stay I reckon we'll bring in someone better and more consistent anyway so he wouldn't be first choice. I can't spend another season hoping we'll finally see the player that we all think is in there, but getting frustrated.

10.) 24 May 2017 14:30:00
The club are in no position to give him his marching orders. If he wants to stay there is nothing the club can do about it. Besides that, whether he stays or not, we will be finding replacements this summer.

11.) 24 May 2017 22:07:05
Ha ha it's not really defending the club trebor more just repeating exactly what the transcript said and not what the papers wrote.

Gotta agree with Toffee Ace too. Releasing a statement saying that we are selling him would probably not be wise.



05 Jan 2017 13:59:48
Ademola Lookman done and dusted good stuff.




19 Jun 2016 22:01:35
Another good performance from Swiss keeper Sommer. Any Eds know if we'd have a decent chance of signing him or if he's being watched by any other clubs?


{Ed025's Note - there are no links with us oli and borussia will look to keep him as he still has 3 years left on his contract..

1.) 20 Jun 2016 00:49:27
Cheers Ed.

2.) 20 Jun 2016 10:38:41
Like so many goalkeepers, he impresses as a shot-stopper, but doesn't look as good coming for crosses.

3.) 20 Jun 2016 11:59:32
Never caught a thing if he was under pressure. There are far better keepers out there than him.

4.) 20 Jun 2016 14:49:15
Didn't really pay close enough attention. We defo need a keeper who can deal with crosses after 10 years of Howard.

My offer for Gylfi would be 43 mil upfront with add-ons, 5m for CL qualification, 1m League Cup, 1m FA Cup. Or something along those lines.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 18:12:43
Not sure that the blues would be able to match your offer Oll. he's yours mate.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 19:59:57
43.5m plus the add ons of oll.

3.) 22 Jul 2017 09:28:00
Haha nice new one BB 😂.



15 Jul 2017 03:57:14
I know there's a lot of good blues of all ages and eras on this site so this is just a little non transfer related question for all of yous.
Best 3 Everton moments and worst 3.
I'll get the ball rolling.
1. Coming back to beat Wimbledon 3-2 to stay up.
2. Amo banging the goals in against Spurs at Elland Road.
3. Ferguson scoring winner against Utd 10 years on.
(Winning FA Cup just missed out)
1. McAllister putting Freekick past Gerrard.
2. Collina disallowing Duncs goal.
3. Poll or whoever disallowing the goal that come of the back of Hutchisons head and pretending he'd already blown the whistle.
Would love love to hear your inputs blues!


1.) 15 Jul 2017 05:49:51
A few old ones here.
1964 Anfield, my first Derby. 4-0 win.
Bayern Munich semi final.
Do agree with that Tottenham game at Elland Road.
Clive Thomas disallowed goal.
Villa League Cup Final.
That Sandy Brown o. g. I was right in line.
Very difficult to just pick three of each.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 08:25:42
Best moments for me.
1 lifting the FA cup after a 14yr wait for a trophy in 1984.
2.Bayern semi (never known an atmosphere like it)
3.either Kingys exocet in the 77 derby/ or ratters noggy creeping in at the kop end.
1.Selling my hero Howard Kendal ( broke a young boys heart)
2.Frank bloody Lampard. running around the corner flag. ( If ever you wanted to murder someone)
3.Clive Thomas. Enough said, case closed.

{Ed025's Note - some great memories there jimmy..

3.) 15 Jul 2017 08:27:11
Good posts boys we have had some good moments in the past I think my best would be Everton beating Rapid Vienna to win the cup in 1985,worst would be Collina disallowing Duncs goal cheers all have a great weekend, GuernseyBlue.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff mate..

4.) 15 Jul 2017 09:12:44
Best - Being at White Hart Lane when Big Nev made THAT save from Falco's header; winning cup winners cup; Amokachi semi-final.

Worst - Losing FA Cup to the other side despite Lineker putting us in front; Heysel and the effect it had on our best ever team; Norman f*****g Whiteside's curler!

Off the top of my head.

5.) 15 Jul 2017 09:23:16
Worst season before last 4-0 hammering at anfield
Best is between Wolfsburg away win people wrote us off and we went there and done a professional job or the 1-0 nil win against united at goodison park big Dunc with his thumping header under the lights. 27 and haven't seen us win anything yet finger crossed it's this year.

6.) 15 Jul 2017 09:30:57
best 3 . being at wembley 95 beating the mancs,
being at goodison beating wimbledon 3-2
sharpys whopper at anfield.
worst . duncs dissalowed goal
being 2-0 down to wimbledon 94 (felt sick)
distins backpass semis against them lot.

7.) 15 Jul 2017 10:11:59
Best: Bayern Semi, closest I've come to heart attack.
Sharpies goal, first time my life moved in slow motion.
Bob latch fords pen to give him 30 goals, and it was against Chelsea.

Worst: two cup finals against them.
White side, enough said.

8.) 15 Jul 2017 10:52:34

Sharp's Derby screamer.
Tom Davies goal v Man City
The last 20 mins of the 95 final (take a bow Nev, you are the best keeper I have ever seen you absolute LEGEND)


Losing 1-0 to Oxford to effectively hand them lot the league in 86
Anything to do with Villarreal
Kevin Moran hacking down Reid when he was destined to score in cup final.

9.) 15 Jul 2017 11:30:28
Best moment was when I was a kid watching us live on the telly coming back from 0-2 to win the 1966 FA Cup final. From the depths of inconsolable despair to pure elation in half-an-hour.
Worst moment was five years later when I heard on the radio that we’d transferred Alan Ball to Arsenal. It took the best part of a decade and a half for us to become winners again.
Since both of those events - and as I've got older and learnt that being an Evertonian means living and coping with a roller-coaster of emotions - there have been too many other best/ worst moments (winning and losing key matches, players coming and going, good and bad chairmen/ owners, etc., etc. ) for me to pick the most important for me. I'm just glad that with Farhad Moshiri we’re back in a position just like when John Moores revitalised our club in the early 1960s.



27 May 2017 02:05:38
I understand the difference of opinion on Rooney, but I think we should sign him. If we lose Rom and Ross then he is at least a high profile player coming into the club after losing two . Plus another much needed leader on the pitch and I think he'd have a new lease of life with us. I think it might be difficult to get our main targets so I think Rooney would at least be a solid start, go all out to get Sigurdson as well and we'll have some tidy attacking players who can string passes together in the final third of the pitch.




21 May 2017 16:52:11
As much as I feel positive about the blues now its not going to be easy to move further forward on the pitch. There's just no creativity and we're simply not good enough. Nowhere near enough desire from half the team either. Think koeman is the right man for the job but these half time subs are becoming a joke. It was refreshing at first but now he needs to start getting it right from the off. I've got a bad feeling we'll miss out on most of our main targets this summer but I hope I'm wrong. Been on the fence about Rooney but now thinking we should definitely get him. We need more leaders on the pitch and I think him coming back to us would give him a new lease of life. Sorry to come across negative but I just think we need to be realistic and patient because we're a long way off were we want to be.

Where's this new kit then lads?

Understand that nbtb, I haven't been more excited to go to the match in at least a decade, made up with our signings so far, but we still haven't addressed the lack of creativity, first half was one of the most boring halves of football I've ever seen, so I can understand why some fans are frustrated, we need to sign gylfi and a fast winger or striker, or start playing Lookman more often in my opinion mate.

If we got 75m and Rooney on a 2 year loan with them paying half of his 250k a week wages that would technically add up to 88m and would be a great deal.

I hope he's got legs otherwise I can't see him scoring to many for us.

For me he's gone backwards, he used to pick up the ball and run at the oppositions defence (Goal against Newcastle) Now he wants to put his foot on the ball and look fancy, but he's just slowing things down. Would love him to want to stay but it doesn't seem like he does so let him go and move on i think.

Just got back from game, first half was awful attacking wise, second half much better. Pickford, Keane, Rooney and Gana stood out for me, thought Sandro looked class as well, Calvert-Lewin had a great 2nd half when played in his right position. Davies made a difference. Koeman needs to start getting tactics right from the start though in my opinion.

We played in the yellow 3rd kit far more times last season than the away, so could happen again.
