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.

A tad negative there mate.

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.

Arsenal and Chelsea will both look beyond Fonseca.
Fonseca is going to be our new boss.
We can compete with wages and transfer budget.
Of the 3 clubs we are a more attractive proposition.
Arsenal will be in freefall and will not risk anything other than a high profile boss.
I think Enrique or ancellotti.
Chelsea will go for Enrique or Wenger.
Fonseca is sensible and knows he will have time to build at Everton.


1.) 20 Apr 2018 16:23:51
Ideally you would not want to be the next man in at Arsenal, look what happened at Man U when Fergi went. Always best to come in after the next man. That way he takes all the flack, and you have a ready made excuse as to why your teams not as good as the one he left.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 16:39:54
Fergus won the league as a goodbye and good luck to the next man. Arsenal a little different.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 18:34:16
Fergie! Blast these wooden fingers.

I've just read the news about Grumpy.
Thoughts and prayers are with his family.
A true blue.
I will definitely miss locking horns with him but I am sure he knew we are Evertonians through and through and all wanted the same thing for our club.
He fought on to the end and that shows all you need to know about the man's character.
RIP brother.




01 Apr 2018 11:00:02
There's not really much anyone can say about yesterdays game that isn't painfully obvious.
We have some great players at this club.
Most of this squad were involved in the 4-0 drubbing of most of the city squad last year.
The difference? Who can say for sure?
A couple of new faces? Tactics? Belief? Atmosphere?
One thing is for sure we deserved to win this fixture last year. Today we got what we deserved.
Have we paid the price for our out goings?
Have we failed to adapt our new signings to the prem? Or maybe city are playing football on a different level to us now?
We can pick and choose whatever we all individually think is the problem but the fact we never turned up at home against ANY team in the league is what needs changing at our club.
I'm not going to say sack SA because I've already made my feelings clear on that one.
All I hope is whoever is in charge next season has enough time to change the current ethos at our club and at the very least produces a team that fights against ANY team be it home or away.
The very least we as fans deserve is a team that gives 100% individually and as a unit.
Certain players look an absolute shadow of their former selves right now and you don't become a bad player overnight.
I worry more for our crop of youngsters (some of whom are world cup winners! ) As they seem to be either wanting away or believe they have might not have a future at our club anymore or look completely devoid of confidence.
Get the right man in and give him time and patience.


{Ed025's Note - good post that pauly..

1.) 01 Apr 2018 13:24:18
Echo that Pauly and add that I cannot believe that someone of Moshri's business nounce if he has made his mind up that Allardyce/ Walsh et al are off in the Summer, he would/ does not already have someone lined up and that talksa are ongoing.

2.) 01 Apr 2018 15:04:03
That's for sure mate.



28 Mar 2018 15:32:46
So if fonseca is plan A has he already been sounded out about working with a DOF?
Has he worked with one before?
How much influence is the DOF going to be given with regards to Fonsecas transfer plans?
Isn't this the same situation that has caused us problems already?
What is the problem with having one manager who can oversee team affairs and transfers?
I worry that we could have a top manager but perhaps make the job a little too complicated for him before he even starts.
Like I've asked though what amount of influence will the DOF have over Fonseca and his plans?


1.) 28 Mar 2018 19:51:39
Judgeing by Fonseca's comments (subdued rather than diplomatic) I would say his aims are for a Club rather higher than ours. I think Mr Moshri et al either have to throw stupid money at the situation or lower their sights.

2.) 28 Mar 2018 23:34:59
Arsenal and Chelsea are the only teams in the top 6 who may potentially look for a new manager next season, and I think they will be looking for someone a little bit more proven at the top level.
I don't see any reason why Fonseca wouldn't come to us.

3.) 29 Mar 2018 00:01:49
Fonseca was interested in coming after koeman was sacked by all accounts.

4.) 29 Mar 2018 09:38:17
fonseca was very interested in joining us last time we approached if it wasn't for shakhtar blocking everything could very well be in the dug out right now.



08 Mar 2018 15:17:49
Happy bday grumpy.
I know we clash now and again but i know you're a true blue and only want success.
Maybe next season will see us agreeing on some positive issues.
All the best mate.


1.) 08 Mar 2018 15:33:48
Thanks Pauly for your kind wishes.

I tend to shoot from the hip a lot but I never intend to brush people up the wrong way, it just seems to happen.

Good things will soon start happening again at the club and we will look back at our fights with joy.

Take care mate.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 17:18:26
Happy birthday Grumpy. Hope you have a great day mate. You never know you might get a belated prezzie this weekend.

All the best mate.

3.) 08 Mar 2018 17:46:09
Have a good un Grumpy.

4.) 08 Mar 2018 18:48:40
Happy Birthday Grumpy. Had my 78th on 18th February,

5.) 08 Mar 2018 19:50:02
Best wishes Grumpy. Hope you had a good one. Be careful who you shoot. Fat Sam and his boys are in town :-)

6.) 08 Mar 2018 20:18:41
Thank you BJU, BlueMike, Dentielad and Nick.

Still a good 25+ years left in us yet Blue Mike. We will both see us win this league mate.

7.) 09 Mar 2018 00:20:57
Hi Grumpy, well I was at Goodison when we won the league and have been to two cup finals, 1966 and 1995, we won both. So my goal is to see us win either the league or the cup before leaving mate.

8.) 09 Mar 2018 00:42:04
Best wishes Grumpy

I'm ten years behind you but let's hope we both see a better Everton rising up shortly. It's what all of us want.

9.) 09 Mar 2018 01:16:20
Happy birthday Grumpy, had to re register, itโ€™s Bazwil, back up and running, hope you had a great birthday and we get three points on Saturday to help you and us Evertonians a bit of celebration.

10.) 09 Mar 2018 21:44:52
Thank you everyone and fingers crossed for Tomorrow.

In SA own words
" I knew I was for the chop at West ham and the fans were singing F Off SA so I started talking about next season. "
Sound familiar?

Wblue he was coming before SA but shaktar asked him to finish his job there and they won't stand in his way in the summer.

Don't hold your breath on howe.
Fonseca will be the new manager and he will agree terms in the summer after guiding shaktar through this champions league comp.
Be happy because we will have the next big name in management and he will lead us to a great new beginning for EFC.
This is already done and dusted.

Fonseca would be ideal.
Please stop rating SA as someone who will still be manager.
As I've previously stated he will keep us by the skin of his undies but that's it.
He has basically given up and told the players if they can't play for him then play for the fans who turn up each week.
We are woeful and the whole set up needs ripping up and re-building and it will.

Tbh I think if Kendal Wouldve stayed we Wouldve won titles and 5 yrs down the line be strong enough to compete in Europe again. It's ok blaming lpool but the buck stops with Kendal.
As much as I loved him he walked out on us at the precise time we needed him more than ever.
Just my opinion.

Grumpy I hope Fonseca takes over soon just so I can say I told you so ha
Sorry to hear that news and I'm hoping you do see the new ground mate.
The life of an Evertonian ey?
We spend so much time wishing and hoping that one day we will see the success our fan base deserves.
I started watching the blues as a 9 yr old.
First game I remember clearly was Watford 84 cup final.
Growing up watching the 80s team probably spoilt me for life.
As the song says " If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor. "
I feel at times I have a right to shout on here that this ain't good enough because of what I've witnessed but I realise I'm fighting with other passionate supporters who have also witnessed glory days.
Once Everton has touched you mate you're never the same.
I will hope to see you back here mate because it won't be same without you.

I've got to say we have more of a chance against lpool than we're giving credit here.
They were abysmal against palace and only for the fact benteke is absolutely woeful they Wouldve been beaten.
If bolassie had scored that header then maybe the first half Wouldve took a different turn.
C'mon lads we are a terrible side but anything can happen. It's just wether our luck is in. For once ha.

Firstly I can go as far back as Rooney also Jeffers, M ball, rodwell, even Alan Ball!
Lukaku wasn't worth 75m?
I didn't mention replacements I said we sell at peak value.
A manager can only be brought in deliberately and neither Martinez or koeman had a managerial record that would negate their salaries or even hiring them for the projects they were hired to do.
Finances and limitations? Name a club as but as us who got left behind whilst other clubs not as big or as successful went on to greater things under the same financial restrictions that I don't understand?
I recall the kings dick and Kirby Tesco fiasco and also sports investment fund debacle.
As for the youth system, dowell asked to go because he was told he would at best be on the bench so he went to play regularly. Same A lookman.
Baningime? Played then dropped. Garbutt? Long gone.
Kenny? Where has he gone?
I also haven't said anything toxic towards the club or players or manager.
I have only ever stated facts and stats.
Look ed02 you run a FANS forum yet you seem to side with a faceless board that uses any excuse not to engage with fans purely because they cant/ won't answer questions that we are all entitled to know the answers to.
The peoples club?
