Our problem is and has been (for a few seasons) that we are predictable.
Any pace running at our defence and we crumble.
A long ball hoisted in high and we panic.
We cannot defend. We haven't got a goal scorer. We haven't got any creativity in midfield.

We sold our best players.
We never replaced them wirh adequate quality.
We let out best prospects leave the club without having a crack and then we persevere with kids who are never going to make it at this level.
I think brands will get it right but I don't have any faith in Silva.
I'm hoping brands will eventually bring van bommel over and they can work together again and solve this mess.

Brands rates him as the best up and coming coach in Europe. If he didn't choose Silva but agreed to work with him then i'm sure he has a name already in mind.

All looking good then Pauly? . I think things are slightly different to how you see it mate. I think we have defended rubbish this season. As simple as that. Lots of games have been ok. We played well at Chelsea, Liverpool, Burnley and a few others. In other games we appeared to crumble. We did that also under Koeman, Martinez and to some degree under Allardyce. Moyes left us a decent but ageing squad. Martinez brought in older or inferior players with the exception of one or two. ie Lukaku, McCarthy and Barry. When Pienaar, Osman, Jags, Baines, Howard, Distin, Hibbert, Oviedo, Stones, Barkley, Naismith, Heitinga, Jelavic, Neville, Cahill, Fellani, Rodwell, Anichebe and others were all allowed to leave or retire without being suitably replaced. Lukakus goals covered up the inadequacies of the squad developing. Koeman then had that dreadful transfer window whereby we had no left sided players and Baimes' age started to show. Colemans is too now, Moyes had a continual line of players of quality coming in and going out. When he took over, our Walter Smith assembled squad was poor. Moyes reduced the age in his 1st 2 seasons. I am not saying I want Moyes back. But I am saying Silva is doing the same. But Silva seems to insist on Zonal marking and seems to have the team set up that leaks goals. Oh for a solid defence. That is where we are missing something. Less goals conceded would help immediately.

I’m not sure how we replace someone like Lukaku adequately. We sell him to possibly the biggest club in the world playing CL football almost year in year out. If there was a like for like replacement why would he come to us if he’s at Lukakus level?

Basically when we sell our best players it’s going to be very similar to the Lukaku situation. When city took lescott we replaced him with Distan who was almost 10 years older. When arsenal took Arteta we got Drenthe. It’s just the way it is for us. We play in the league below the top six and therefore replacing players who move to these top six clubs is going to very difficult if we are looking to go like for like.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 12:53:47
Ricky will get 15-20 this season, siggy 10-15 If we can get a striker who can get 15 and a r/ w that can get 5-15 then scoring goals wise we will be ok.
Like Degsy says we need a resolution to the leaking goals, that's where the confidence comes from.
Now I'm not sure how we do that, whether we change the players, tactics or manager.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 16:24:40
Isn't this basically what I've said in my post?

5.) 06 Feb 2019 12:35:30
Regarding adequately replacing Lukaku, I actually don't think he is a top striker despite the number of goals he got for us. The team had been set up to play to his strengths with balls in behind he could run on to and bully defenders who couldn't cope with his strength and speed. We then had that ridiculous summer where we sold him and replaced him with half a dozen bang average number 10s.

My point is that it was the effectiveness of the system from a goal-scoring perspective in a way that played to the players' strengths. We haven't adequalty replaced that because Silva has come in dead set on a way of playing but doesn't have the players to do it.

Either he caves and starts playing in a way that suits the players at his disposal (balls into the opposition box and out of our box would be a start) , or he sticks with it in the hope that an overhaul of players that can't adapt being replaced with ones who have experience of playing that way in the summer will turn things around.

I'm sick of watching us make the same mistakes every week and am really not sure Silva is the long term answer, but I don't see any benefit in changing him now and adding him to the growing list of highly paid former employees while bringing in someone new to inherit the same problems.



04 Dec 2018 22:40:35
So Gomes has officially stated he wants to make the move permanent.
Quality midfielder.


{Ed025's Note - lets hope we can get it done soon pauly mate..

1.) 05 Dec 2018 01:14:48
where would this news be from.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 14:50:24
he hasn't officially stated.

3.) 06 Dec 2018 04:20:04
He has ya know kidda, he has stated he does not want to return to Barcelona at the end of the season. It's in the times and the guardian and numerous sites.

4.) 06 Dec 2018 16:14:16
no, it says everton believe he doesn't want to return to Barcelona, and that still doesn't say that he wants to move to everton permanent?

5.) 07 Dec 2018 14:44:36
He's a blue now. He's staying.

6.) 07 Dec 2018 15:12:48
yeah because every player we've ever loaned has stayed zzzzzz.



31 Jul 2018 02:40:27
I've heard pickford is up for the move to Chelsea.
Let's just hope 75m doesn't come calling.
Also brands and Silva are stamping their authority over the club and are concerned about an old boys network that is currently in place.
This fella is privy to inside info and I am just passing on the latest from him.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 08:25:18
Jags was on the radio yesterday saying Pickford was happy with life at Goodison and laughed at the idea of joining Chelsea.

I’m not dissing your info Pauly but just stating that there’s other opinions from within the club that differ.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 08:32:09
We won't sell Pickford mate, no chance unless something ridiculous like 100 million comes in, he is happy where he is too for now, a good source in my work told me about the old boys click too and he is usually spot on, he actually mentioned Baines and Silva are not speaking, we will see what squad we have soon as the clock is ticking, I personally think we will spend a lot of money in the next few days.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 11:59:34
So CFC are going to spend more for their replacement than the fee they'll get for Courtois?
Ok logical.

4.) 31 Jul 2018 12:41:33
If we could definitely get Butland for say 30 mill and get around 80 mill for Pickford then great good business, we get a keeper who is as good if not better and 50 mill to spend.

5.) 31 Jul 2018 15:03:07
Butland as good as or better than Pickford? Are you messing? dark clouds, sometimes it seems that your comments on here are just out to wind the rest up for a reaction!

6.) 31 Jul 2018 16:06:05
I think any difference between Pickford and Courtois fees would be down more to the length of contract Courtois only has a year I believe so his value has dropped due to that
Just my thoughts.

7.) 31 Jul 2018 17:23:47
Well CFC quoted 100 mil to real so how does that sit in your thoughts southern?

8.) 31 Jul 2018 19:33:30
Tell you what Dark Clouds . whilst my assessment is slightly differently to yours I totally agree, Butland and 50mill would do me right down to the ground!

9.) 31 Jul 2018 21:57:46
If they get £100m for Courtois with one year remaining then I would be amazed! Would also love to see how much we could get for Pickford with 4 years remaining but if I am honest why would we sell our number one goalkeeper!

{Ed025's Note - our number 1 asset ST..

10.) 31 Jul 2018 23:32:34
the 100million was being reported ad for courtouis AND willian.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 20:17:01
They will be lucky to get £40mil for Courtois and I doubt any team in the world will value Pickford at anything close to what Everton would want for him. Why would you sell to be fair, a top keeper is hard to find you could spend the next 10 years trying to replace him.



01 Nov 2017 22:32:36
The team look woeful.
Reminds me of aston villa when they went down.
I wasnt even this worried during our last 2 flirts with relegation.
If we are in the bottom 3 at xmas i really can't see us escaping.
Im not using that boring whos top and whos bottom at xmas blah blah blah line, i just feel that by then if we are still adrift the players will be absolutely finished mentally.

Leicester was our worst performance all season.
They are not responding to any change in personel or tactics.
I would recall dowell, play lookman and baningime more and put more of the u23s in and hopefully get rid of some in jan and then pay massively for a decent forward.
Clubs will sell for stupid money and before the moaning about inflated prices just picture a goal scorer coming in and saving the season or don't pay silly money and get yaself an A-Z for our 1st season in the championship.

I strongly believe we would struggle in the championship so a quick return would not be on the cards. l.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 07:23:21
A tad negative there mate.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 09:15:11
One word


3.) 02 Nov 2017 17:00:37
Lad if you want me to read about allardyce and dyche etc then forget prozac, ill start shooting up!
Ive watched us lift titles and cups in my lifetime and i am telling you all this team we have now is woeful.

4.) 03 Nov 2017 11:36:40
Normally I would agree about clubs around xmas being worried but not me, by then we should have Coleman, Bolasie and Funes Mori back, a new transfer window open and a chance to sort the defence and striker issue out.

Other clubs have had tough starts like Everton, but each of those have a recognised striker on their books and no long term injuries like the above three and McCarthy.

If we can get the above 4 back in and bring a couple of strikers in, possibly give Garbutt a run out and we should be fine.

Our downfall was playing too many new faces too soon and against the big boys.

Van bommel anyone?


1.) 13 Feb 2019 07:37:06
No chance.



28 Jan 2019 20:49:00
So Silva has had a bad run. People comparing past managers and even wanting moyes back? So where do we go?

I didn't want bobby, based purely on his cv.
I didn't want koeman, again based on his cv.
I didn't want allardyce, based on his cv.
I didn't want Silva, but not because of his cv.

I didn't want Silva because I didn't believe the job was of a calibre he could handle.
I think he believes he is right for the job and out of all the managers I have mentioned I think he is the one to give me hope.
I watched the game yesterday and I am worried for him.

I am worried for him because I don't see any player that looks like they are playing for him. I can't pick individuals apart because that's not fair but I can pick tactics apart. We are naive. We are predictable. We are weak in attack.

Will he get it right? He has the confidence.
Will we give him time? I don't know.
Do i want to give him time? Yes.

Pickford needs to command his area.
We need a CH that will scream the house down.
We need a MD that can dictate play.
We need a goalscorer.
Do i think Silva can do this? I don't know.




01 Jan 2019 20:36:51
I see ed02 didn't fancy posting my last reply?
No worries ed. We both know tho x.


{Ed002's Note - Tell us about that reply then? I have posted all of your childish and stupid replies.}

1.) 01 Jan 2019 20:59:50
Your actually being a big child here not me.

{Ed002's Note - You have just declared Silva a liar - let’s hope the club listen to you and move the mother on as soon as possible.}



01 Jan 2019 20:09:02
I think ed002 is editing this tonight how he sees fit.
You leave your view but don't wish to continue debating.
That's fine.
I just think that you're being very very dismissive of the new regime and pretty blinkered with your own negative views.
It was actually you who championed hoddle on more than 1 occasion so it's hard to take your opinion seriously.


{Ed002's Note - What makes you think I don't want to "debate" this? I don't have any negative views, I have explained the issue since the signing of Silva - and it is all coming true. What is the problem with Hoddle?}



01 Jan 2019 19:50:31
Well the naysayers are out in force but just remember reds fans were calling for klopps head last season.
We need a striker end of.
If we get a goalscorer we will turn these defeats and draws into wins.
Shall we sack him? Then get who?
I've even seen someone on here talking about hoddle?
It's a long road to success. Walk it don't run it.
Do you think we will get a manager who will come in and win every game from the start?
Give him time.
Don't kill another one before he has even had a chance.
Happy New year to you all and keep the faith.


{Ed002's Note - I would have to say it is nothing to do with Liverpool and Everton need to do what is best for the club. If Everton only need a striker, the fix is to play Tosun. If there is anyone at the club with half-a-brain, the question to ask is why the squad is lop sided with numerous LW and only one RW. Other parts of the squad are aging. Someone will now have noticed Everton could have purchased Zouma given his massive loan fee and the price of Mina and be in much better shape. An unconvincing journeyman coach is not setting Everton up for the future, and is failing to get the return on games that Allardyce got without his cast waste of money. None of this will be convincing to Gomes who might be willing to look to the like of Spurs a better option.}

1.) 01 Jan 2019 19:58:15
Utter tripe.

{Ed002's Note - That must be it then. It is a great pity that you cannot be more constructive with your comments to point out what is wrong.

But you keep thinking (a) it is all about Liverpool, (b) Everton should not play a striker, (c) the squad is perfectly balanced with a lot of wide right-sided players, (d) the squad is all young and nobody is aging, (e) Mina is the best centre back in the world and Zouma is rubbish, (f) Silva has spent years and years at every club he has coached proving himself with significant success, (g) Silva is giving a magnitude better points return than Allardyce and has spent nothing, (h) Gomes won't be interested in joining any less successful sides like Spurs who won't be in the Champions League like Everton.

It is a great pity that some fans are so stupid and are not interested in any constructive criticism at all. I feel sorry for the Everton supporters if you all feel like this. Again, it rather makes my job pointless in trying to explain anything that I know is going on when faced with what is fundamentally vegetable matter - "utter tripe" from me no doubt.}

2.) 01 Jan 2019 20:10:17
You been on the pop?
I didn't say any of that but you're entitled to your opinion.

{Ed002's Note - You said what I said was "utter tripe" - it seems you either didn't read it or are particularly stupid. So if your comment of "utter tripe" was not aimed at me it could only be aimed at the original post - which was yours?

Your best way out of this seems to be to claim you are particularly stupid, that at least is believable. Are you one of those people from Liverpool who was repeatedly dropped on the head as a child?}

3.) 01 Jan 2019 21:01:37
Ed that comment about those people from Liverpool who was repeatedly drop on there heads is highly offensive to a lot of people from the Liverpool area now I understand that you mayy be frustrated with pauly but you could just have a go at him and not everyone in Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - Try not to be a complete moron. Pauly will be taking over on this site and he will be giving updates on all of the issues he has identified.}

4.) 01 Jan 2019 23:45:12
well put ed I've not always seen eye to eye with you but you are spot on with that one must have had a good sherry over Xmas.

5.) 01 Jan 2019 21:20:00
Sorry Pauly you are wrong eds is right on this one.

6.) 01 Jan 2019 22:48:09
Hahaha blaming Liverpool again. And by the way the majority of Liverpool fans didn't want Klopp sacked. They wanted a goalkeeper and a defender which Klopp got. Maybe if Silva got players in positions they were needed you wouldn't be so angry.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 00:48:15
Listen geri it took klopp the best part of 4 years to get Liverpool where they are know and he had a better squad to start with than we have.

Can't abide any fan wanting us to lose so we don't help lpool. These are the same fans crying every week about tactics and players and bad managers. These fans are the reason we get called a small club with a small club mindset!
Support YOUR team and don't worry about anyone else!
The reason you support your team is because you want to see them beat EVERYONE!

Cry arsing every week after a bad performance or a defeat but will happily cheer if we don't win tonight and not moan about how we played or what decisions Silva made or didn't make!

Ed you seem to have a negative attitude towards Evertons regime. why?
You call me stupid? I will prove I know people in the club with this following statement. lookman will be sold. He flys back to Germany to see his gf. He's not injured.
You can't beat that. I've heard your pods and I've seen your opinions on here. I ain't been impressed.
