Was chatting to a lad I know, who is an agent, this morning and he reckons that Sam is here until the summer and Fonseca will come then.


1.) 28 Feb 2018 11:56:35
I could live with that.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 13:08:27
I'd take that and hopefully Brandts as DOF Walsh as cheif scout or am I asking too much.

3.) 28 Feb 2018 13:20:02
walsh can go for me mate he has taken us for a ride, mans a scout and demanded a better role to join us and failed.

4.) 28 Feb 2018 14:19:58
To be fair Johnny, I don’t think he demanded that role. I think we pursued him and offered him the DoF role. I agree though that he clearly doesn’t seem cut out for the job.



27 Aug 2017 09:02:09
Ed's, is the acquisition of a new striker dependent on Niasse moving out, or will RK bring a striker in regardless?


{Ed002's Note - I really don't know but Naisse is for sale and you would need to add up the squad size to see that there is space.}

1.) 27 Aug 2017 09:58:28
Cheers Ed.

2.) 28 Aug 2017 05:43:51
Sorry Pierre - clicked the thumbs down by mistake.



22 Aug 2017 22:27:11
SSN saying that Everton have made a bid for Jiminez. Source quoted as the paper that shan't be named, so dubious I'd say.


1.) 23 Aug 2017 10:56:33
He doesn't look very impressive on paper, record at Atletico was awful, one goal in 21 appearances! Hardly stats to make you drool with excitement!

2.) 23 Aug 2017 13:02:10
I'd rather us pay £50m for dembele from Celtic than Jimenez.

3.) 23 Aug 2017 14:33:31
Arsenal only want 13.4m for Perez, I'm assuming Walsh likes him, could be a real bargain the way prices are at the minute.

4.) 23 Aug 2017 15:12:04
He turned us down for Arsenal last year. If we do get him hope he admits he made a mistake.

5.) 23 Aug 2017 15:42:12
If we get him I'd prefer he shows Arsenal what they could have had with more game time and bangs in some goals.
He would also represent a smaller outlay and less risk and would mean we keep funds for reinvestment in future windows.

6.) 23 Aug 2017 16:07:13
We need a target man for Sandro and Rooney to play off. This bloke doesn't play that role.

7.) 23 Aug 2017 16:12:42
Hard to disagree with that. Looks good value for money. If Koeman/ Walsh liked him last summer, then why not? Can't blame a foreign player for picking Arsenal over Everton a year ago. He'd soon realise the error of his ways after arriving.

8.) 23 Aug 2017 16:26:56
Would like Sirlami from Leicester very good player, good in the area and can finish. Got injured last year and Shakespeare does not seem to like hi, but a very good player.

9.) 23 Aug 2017 16:30:34
I agree tadpole as long as he fits what Koeman is looking for I'd take a cheaper option in Perez. If we are splashing the cash then I would look to Dembele over this Jimenez.

10.) 23 Aug 2017 16:47:14
Theres a striker we should have gone for weeks an weeks ago in Michy Batshuayi.

If ever there was a like for like for Rom, its him, but he works harder and has a better first touch.

11.) 23 Aug 2017 19:32:40
100 and 10 percent agree with you TrueBlue. Dembele 32 goals or Jimenez 1 in 4 is it 🤔. I thought Sigurdsson was a hefty price but proven. Dembele can score we've all seen him do it but possibly a punt. Although I don't see it as that. Or Jimenez sadly I can't add much more to it.

12.) 24 Aug 2017 01:16:55
Yes i was told jimenez . I know prices are ridiculous of late . But £45mil is laughable . He is a 1in4 goal a game . Not impressive atall .



10 Jul 2017 11:58:51
Jim White on Talksport saying that he expects three more signings this week.


1.) 10 Jul 2017 12:34:14
Sigurdsson, Giroud and Grey? 👍🏻.

2.) 10 Jul 2017 12:38:44
Gylfi, a winger and striker apparently.

3.) 10 Jul 2017 12:51:27
Surely we need a LB?

4.) 10 Jul 2017 13:06:50
I think Riedewald plays left back as well as his favoured centre back role, one of the Eds mentioned we may be in for him, 20 year old playing at Ajax currently.

5.) 10 Jul 2017 14:12:02
How much of a fee would the kid from Ajax command? Would Ben Gibson not be a better option as he knows the league already? Also do any eds know if there is a any interest in Iheanacho? Be a cracking buy IMO.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't want to talk about money. Try the MC page regarding Iheanacho.}

6.) 10 Jul 2017 14:45:30
Cheers mate.

7.) 10 Jul 2017 16:58:58
I would love Riedeweild, he looks an outstanding talent! Reminds me of a young Vertonghen/ Alderweild type of player, huge potential however for whatever reason I just can't see it happening though.

8.) 10 Jul 2017 17:41:19
Why can't you see it happening?
From what Ed said when I asked about Inter being interested in Funes Mori he seems to feel we are in with a shout as his agent is drumming up interest for a move, so he may buy in to the project from Koeman.
That's if I understood it right.

9.) 10 Jul 2017 18:46:38
The only reason I can't see it happening is I think there will be a lot more clubs interested! I'd love to be wrong but I just have a feeling we will miss out, I'd much prefer us to scout a potential superstar rather than go out and buy VVD for 60 odd million!

10.) 10 Jul 2017 19:39:00
I totally agree unearth a diamond or develop a young talent.

11.) 10 Jul 2017 20:17:13
I think Walsh will find loads I just don't want us to get silly and go crazy and start splashing the cash all over the place when there is still bargains to be found (sandro)

12.) 10 Jul 2017 22:13:49
Jim white is a dick wouldn't believe a word that came out of his mouth.



04 Jul 2017 21:48:04
Chatting to an agent earlier today and he said that Everton are definitely trying to iron out a deal for Rooney. Could be announced as early as Friday.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 23:11:04
Look ed I know you don't Rooney back and I'm not to sure I do myself but surely him coming back would give him a bit of life knowing if he doesn't succeed he will be down as a failure. He will be bursting inside to play the last couple of seasons at goodison. He would be a top class mentor to the younger players like Davies. like big dunc and Kevin Campbell was when Rooney was coming through. I just think the experience is vital as who knows where jags Baines Barry ECT will be come next season I believe he has still got it in him to give us a couple of season i'd be happy with 10-15 goals and a few assists a season with europe coming up aswell.

{Ed025's Note - i can see both sides of it duncan, yes there will be positives but for me its a massive gamble if he sticks to his word of not taking a pay cut, i also think he is past his best and would rather see tom davies who is hungry and sharp in the side to be honest, but of course thats just my view mate and if he comes and does the business then great, i have ate a lot of humble pie in my time and would love to be proved wrong..

2.) 04 Jul 2017 23:34:04
Yes of course a BIG pay cut is needed. And i'd love to see Tom playing in the same side as Rooney to be honest. Rom is going and hopefully we could get 80m+Rooney. An also sign Giroud. Rooney sandro giroud ross/ gylfi klassenn bolasie DLC lookman Davies gana shniderlin besic. I like the sound of them apples ed. COYB! one last thing when is everton European draw?

3.) 05 Jul 2017 00:13:02
I can see what you mean about Rooney being past his best but even though we are moving forward, if Rooney was still at his best we would still not be at a level to sign him the fact he is declining is what has given us the opportunity to get him which was the same with Barry. I believe he will bring an extra level of experience in those forward positions and it won't hurt our shirt sales either.

{Ed025's Note - im sure RK will take no notice of my views anyway AL, if it happens it happens mate and i will support him the same as anyone who dons the shirt, its fine to have different views on things mate..

Martin Dobson given Joe Royles job, maybe big Joe going to take temporary charge?


1.) 28 Feb 2018 18:07:24
Big Joe left back in December I think Pierre, not sure if that coincided with SA bringing in his own staff or if he got a new job offer elsewhere.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 18:36:52
Ahh right ok. Thanks BlueSpud.

3.) 01 Mar 2018 16:58:18
No worries mate. Just had a look on the net and he left 4 days after SA came through the door, no real reason offered as far as I can see.



03 Feb 2018 22:50:16
I find it very difficult to accept the following two scenarios - should they be the case of course!

First scenario being that today’s debacle, and I think I’m being extremely tame in saying that, was a case of him setting the team up to be ultra defensive, almost two banks of five, and hit them on the break. This clearly didn’t work because the players he selected were simply not good enough. We all have players that we bash constantly on here, some deservedly and some just differing opinions. But, can anyone honestly say that Schneiderlin deserves to even be in the squad, let alone a starting place? Same for Williams. How those two are even professional footballers is beyond me. We know Martina is a terrible right back, so he can be almost forgiven for being worse at left back. We buy a £27m striker and he has to sit on the bench behind poor old Oumar, who’s dreadful performance on Wednesday should have sent him straight back to the 23’s. I think what I’m trying to say is that this continuous selection of players - awful players, is continually bringing the same drab performances and bad results. Can Sam not see this? Substituting Wallcot so early was also a poor decision imo. How is he (SA) allowed to get away with this? If the above scenario is the case, he deserves to lose his job for his own performance, never mind blaming the players. If you pick crap players, your team will play crap. Simple.

The second scenario - Sam has been brought in to purely keep us in the premier League. Simple as that, although why give him such a long (ish) contract? By doing this, he has identified the games in which he thinks we don’t really have a chance of getting much out of it and will preserve the better team for games he knows (thinks) we’ll win. That would explain changing a winning team, a team which pressed high up the pitch and played well, taking off Wallcot and playing less than fit/ capable players. Is this what we deserve as a club? Some of us have paid a fortune to go down to London for this match and for it to be treated as a ‘dead rubber’ almost is an insult to the fans and the stature of our club. It’s certainly is not good enough and heads need to roll somewhere for it to be this bad.

Either way, things ain’t good at our great club. Something is seriously wrong for either of the above scenarios to be true and I’m starting to have serious concerns about the direction we are going in, and the hands that the club is in. We should be going to arsenal to scrap, to have a go and to try to win - end of. Regardless of our league position etc etc.

Finally, Tosun. Why do I get the feeling that we’ve bought another dud? An all too familiar pattern is emerging after we buy a player - they play one game, they get dropped to the bench, and than disappear completely (Sandro, Klaassen etc) . It is very worrying how this has happened yet again.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 00:41:04
We don't know if are new player's are bud because they can get on the field lookman scored the winner on loan bad management. good points made.



03 Feb 2018 22:57:08
I’d like to add to my last post regarding Tosun sitting on the bench. £27m in him and £45m in Sigurdsson- by my reckoning . that’s. loads of ££££ Just sat on the bench when the likes of Schneiderlin gets a game ahead of them. Bad times blues. Bad times.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 01:40:02
astonishing that SA seems to have said that Tosun is having trouble settling and adjusting the the premiership and will need to be brought on slowly and may be getting full games by the end of the season. Got a horrible feeling we may not see to much of him, hope I'm wrong. Also what is ever happened to getting a left back did they ever even try for anyone, Leighton has finite time and they must get someone in asap, what happens absolutely nothing, same with CBs panic loan of Mangala (doing a favour to ManC)
God knows what's going on behind the seanes other that blind panic and incompetence going for a back three like that with obviously no training bloody suicidal. Need to shot of Walsh, Alerdyce and Elstone now. fed up. Rant over.



21 Jan 2018 11:48:18
Well, bad day at the office all round yesterday. Absolutely gutted for McCarthy, it looked a horrendous injury and I hope he has a speedy recovery.

On paper, the team looks strong (with the exception of Martina) so why are we playing so badly? And anyone who doesn’t think we were woeful yesterday need to re-evaluate their life! I just cannot fathom what is wrong with us and why we look so poor.

Finally, special mention to the Goodison faithful for the atmosphere yesterday. I know it’s been bad for a long time, but yesterday was quite possibly the worst atmosphere I’ve ever experienced at GP. The moans and groans almost from the first whistle were embarrassing. It’s almost like the seats in the ground are inhabited by professional moaners. The way I see it, either get behind the team or don’t go to the match. Simple.


1.) 21 Jan 2018 12:12:09
So Pierre you start by stating how terrible we are and then expect us as fans to be jovial and cheer this 'football', get a grip mate, give us something to cheer on and maybe we will, this isn't Everton we are witnessing, this is a bunch of 5 year olds on a playground at dinner time.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 12:12:16
You can't expect the fans to be anything else other than unhappy with what we are witnessing every home game. If the players showed a bit more fight and desire on the pitch then that will get the crowd going but this insipid style of football is sucking the soul out of us all. I paid over 500 quid for my ticket and have been left feeling short changed for the majority of this season. It's painful to watch mate.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 12:19:46
in all fairness how are we
meant to create an atmosphere when before yesterday we hadn't had a shot on target in the premiership this year the team get the atmosphere going it has to start on the pitch and I'm sorry but they aren't really doing anything to rally us up are they.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 13:30:05
The three replies above illustrate exactly what I’m on about. You pays your money, you has you say kind of thing. Do you think I get in for free? I’ve watched Everton through some dark times - Gordon Lee, early days of Kendall, Walker, Smith et al; but there was always the crowd to get behind the team. Never have I witnessed such abject derision on the terraces and negative, toxic behaviour from the majority of the fans. If you got that description, then you are part of the problem and as bad as the players. It’s called support - you encourage the team, not berate them and moan incessantly at every poor ball or every weak challenge. I suppose it’s just the changing face of supporters and the change in demographic in the ground. I for one am getting more disillusioned with the crowd more than the team. I’m sick of listening to the same waffle from the middle class twits who live in Heswall, week in week out.

I stand by my original post - support the team or don’t bother going.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 13:33:16
And by the way, no one is expecting anybody to be happy with the football. Just a bit of encouragement wouldn’t go a miss instead of constant moaning at the slightest thing and then leaving your seat five minutes before half time to get your bovril.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 14:00:57
The players are getting paid anything from 30 to 100k+ a week and you're saying it's us who has to get them going? Absolute rubbish, a few good tackles and some effort creates a great atmosphere at Goodison. We're not scarf waving blind idiots like half the kopites. We're proper football fans and what we're being given in terms of football and effort is a disgrace.

7.) 21 Jan 2018 14:03:47
I'm really starting to warm to you Pierre Good posts.

8.) 21 Jan 2018 14:18:23
Do you know how many times supporters have gone to the game full of hope this season. Yesterday was no different, two new players so things must improve? Supporters have had the life drained out of them by this teams performance and tactics. You want them to get behind the team? Then the team has to give us something to support.

9.) 21 Jan 2018 15:37:26
OllBlue- “a few good tackles an some effort creates a great atmosphere at Goodison” and I’m the one talking rubbish?

10.) 21 Jan 2018 19:03:08
You go to Curry's pay £550 for a telly then get home and what it says on the box is not what's in the box, do you A: cheer, be overjoyed and give Curry's positive feedback or B: Complain that what you were sold is below expectation, I take it Pierre you would do answer A?
Football is a business and is no different to shopping, I was promised a season challenging the top 6 by the manager at the time and the majority shareholder, the staff they employed have failed to give me this so I will moan when I want, especially with the substandard level of football on display and I'm a fella from Huyton not Heswall but were your from makes no difference to what shite is dished up on the pitch.

11.) 22 Jan 2018 15:56:14
I totally disagree with your analogy and you obviously don’t get my point. As I’ve said before, if that’s you opinion, then you’re part of the problem imho and that is the reason the atmosphere is so poor on the ground.



05 Jan 2018 19:23:14
Good luck Ross Barkley at Chelsea.

Some of the guff that I’m reading is just plain embarrassing and people seriously need to get a grip.

Yes, I’m as disappointed as the next blue that he’s gone, in fact I’m gutted. Such a prodigious talent, a blue . one of us. But, I don’t blame him and I don’t think it’s about money. He will have history reasons etc etc..


1.) 05 Jan 2018 19:34:00
I was big fan of him also, says a lot about the club that we couldn't convince him to stay.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 19:48:25
Well said that Man.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 19:54:48
True, Pierre, but he did take an awful lot of money in wages and the cost of physio care for 6 months, while apparently solving Chelsea's problem of "how can we possibly justify buying a half season injured player for £35 million when he only has a year left on a contract he has absolutely zero desire to renew? " And to think people say he's not clever!

Someone is on the wind up over Phil jones surely? (Hopefully! )

Wiltshire played well for Bournemouth I think, and he’s had a good run for a couple of seasons now. Would be worth a gamble for free.


{Ed001's Note - he did not play well for Bournemouth, the fans complained that he basically just stood in the centre circle and they rescued their season when he was out injured, because he was injured for a lengthy spell last season, as he has been again this time.}

Try and look at it like this Bluey, and try to be patient -

This is only my opinion and just the way I see things but, Sam Allardyce was brought in to do one job and one job only - preserve premier league status. Not at all for a long term project. It is my belief that the main manager target is not available until the summer and there’s absolutely no point in making managerial changes until then, even if the football is dross to watch and we are certainly flirting with danger.

Fans these days expect instant success and overnight results. The reality is extremely far from that and I genuinely believe that although the Everton board have made a couple of wrong decisions, they’ll get it right eventually. If supporters continue to force the board in to making rash, knee jerk decisions, then the club will suffer. Supporters need to do what they’re supposed to do - support!

There’s two distinct camps within football these days - one that has the attitude that “we pay our money, we has Our say” kind of thing. This, I believe, leads to the toxic behaviour that we witness weekly at Goodison and on countless message boards. The other camp, like myself, are more traditional and will shout and cheer the lads in regardless. How it should be imo. I saw a video this morning of an arsenal fan in tears on a radio phone in. I was speechless at how pathetic he sounded.

Agree with most of what you say there Ed. Although, on the whole, I think Rooney has been a decent signing really. He’s played some good games for us and scored some important goals.


{Ed001's Note - I don't see how he has been decent, he gets in the way in every move and is constantly anywhere but where you would want him to be. Yes he has scored some goals, but at what cost? I mean on the pitch cost, not wages etc. Would say Sigurdsson have scored and created more if he had played there? Would the team as a whole played better without a headless chicken running around brainlessly? If you are in midfield and looking to play a pass to him you have to search around to see where he is, because he could be anywhere. So you can't have an understanding built and just play a ball immediately, like you could with, for instance, Vardy up front. Which slows down your play and allows the opposition time to recover positions. That was especially a problem in the first part of the season when you had so little pace in the team to attack them with. You needed the ball to be moved around at pace but the players are unable to keep it moving one or two touch as they are spending 3 or 4 touches trying to figure out where he is.}

I honestly know nothing about him. ED002 will be the man to ask.


{Ed002's Note - he would be a good choice but Shakhtar Donetsk won’t want him to go and it would take lot as he has been at the highest level in terms of European competition and would need to give that up.}

I certainly think Fonseca has a good chance of coming, but I have to be honest - I don't know anything about him! I just don't fancy dyche for some reason. Maybe because he very much reminds me of Moyes.

Ed002 - Is Fonseca a realistic possibility in the summer? I’ve heard one or two rumours that he’s very much in the frame.

To be fair Joe, I heard the same myself this morning off an agent I know. He’s been pretty reliable in the past (Rooney, before even the papers/ news had it) and he told me that Fonseca will come in the summer.
