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.

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..

Two managers’ futures looking uncertain all of a sudden in O’Niell and Coleman.

What are peoples’ opinions of these two?


1.) 15 Nov 2017 19:31:36
Sunderland and rangers are looking for managers.

2.) 15 Nov 2017 22:00:57
Please god no.

3.) 16 Nov 2017 08:35:37
As a Liverpool fan I hope you don’t touch them with a pooey stick, I enjoy the derby and want it again next year lord have mercy and don’t hire those throbbers.



25 Oct 2017 09:12:49
Watching the press conference from yesterday, I have to say that Unsworth says all the right things for me and I think he was very diplomatic about Koeman, but there’s definitely even a massive problem behind the scenes. I also like the sound of the team he’s put together - Royle, Ferguson etc. People who know the club and know what Everton is all about. Sounds like McCarthy is about to come in from the cold too, as well as hopefully Barkley. At the risk of sounding all romantic, I’d love to see him given the job and for him to do well.




16 Oct 2017 17:34:21
Does anyone else See the similarities between Walter Smiths days at Everton and Ronald Koeman’s?

Players playing out of position, negative tactics?


1.) 16 Oct 2017 18:06:54
I think we can all talk about who should play and tactics all we want but at the end of the day this is all down to confidence and it’s clear its rock bottom these are good players and yes one or two may be playing out of position but there not doing the basics right, watched MOTD last night and Keown showed a couple of clips where he said the pass should of been there and it was simple passes but would of been space to attack but instead just played 5-10yards back or sideways, only thing I would like to see is rotating Guye and Sniederlen with Davis or Klassen we don’t need 2 players that don’t really give us a attacking threat. Team for Lyon


Keane. Jagielka

Kenny. Baines
Davis. Klassen.


Rooney. Calvert-Lewin.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 11:08:27
No width there at all, we need to balance the team better.



16 Oct 2017 17:31:51
Further to the Benitez thread further down the board - Ashley has put NUFC up for sale. That would probably put an end to speculation surrounding RB.




16 Oct 2017 09:00:15
This is by no means a “Koeman out” post, I’m just interested to know, if he did go, who would people think would replace him? Who out there is even a viable option to replace him should the board run out of patience?


1.) 16 Oct 2017 09:57:40
Moyes ;)

2.) 16 Oct 2017 10:04:10

3.) 16 Oct 2017 12:20:14
I agree just been having this convo at work and have whittled it down to 5 possible solutions in my mind they all have various pros and cons
1 stick with koeman scares me to hell this 1 yes it's a new team and new style and it will take time but how long there's no signs of any improvement and it can't carry on
2 anchelloti yes big name big reputation is he the right fit it's all well and good operating at the highest level but he would face numerous new challenges if we could get him that puts a question mark against him for me
3 moyes very controversial left a bad taste when he left guilty of setting a glass ceiling but after nearly 5 years i would kill for the passion he got the team playing with and the players he did bring in on a budget are considerably better than now and with money could he do the job
4 dyche doing a great job at Burnley big step up if he was to come can he do it
5 unsworth fantastic job with the kids can he make the step up would have massive support from fans but I think it's too soon
Now probably the option I'm leaning towards which is probably the hardest sell to the fans is
6 benitez yes there's an issue with his past and that lot and some stupid comments but his pedigree at top end is clearly there and he's done the dirty work at a lower level and proved he can do that controversial yes but I think from the viable options he has more positives than the rest.

4.) 16 Oct 2017 12:37:30
unsworth for me, or Rafa, not Moyes please.

5.) 16 Oct 2017 13:33:39
Ancelotti won't come
Moyes - are you having a laugh - sneaky way he left us, never ever in a million years would I accept him
Unsy - too inexperienced for me, maybe in a few years
Rafa - always said no way but completely about turned, i'd have him in a heart beat now
Dyche - marmite at minute
Koeman - dead man walking, gone within 7 days


6.) 16 Oct 2017 13:50:38
Ancelotti for me for 3 years and train up maybe unsworth. Ancelotti without a prodigy since Clements left for Swansea.

7.) 16 Oct 2017 15:32:37
Personally I think if RK were to leave/ get sacked, then I would be happy for Rafa to make History and become the first manager to of managed both sides of the park. I also think he would have a big point to prove to that lot and that would help with his self motivation.

{Ed001's Note - second, the first manager to manage both Everton and Liverpool was both clubs' first ever manager, William Edward Barclay.}

8.) 16 Oct 2017 16:03:24
Grumpy how did you not know that mate, your teenage years too, shame on you lad :)

Ed001 do you reckon Rafa would come mate, I was strictly in the no way to Rafa jus because he managed youse but completely changed my mind now, personally I don't think he would do it anyway.

{Ed001's Note - he would love to return to Merseyside mate. As he knows there is no chance of ever getting the job at Liverpool again, I think he would. This takeover at Newcastle is creating a lot of uncertainty right now.}

9.) 16 Oct 2017 17:03:32
You are indeed correct Ed001,
I didn't count him as he only "managed" us for 22 games whilst he was forming LFC.
That would be a great question for a pub quiz, shame I don't go to pubs any more.

{Ed001's Note - I know mate, it was a different era and the boards picked the team then, but still he has his place in the record books. To be honest, I never knew until I was doing the research for the series of articles I am doing on former Liverpool managers. Though I did not do much on him, as he was joint manager of Liverpool and I thought I would leave him until I am doing the Everton managers. Amazing how connected the two clubs are at their roots though.}

10.) 16 Oct 2017 17:15:00
I said Rafa when Martinez got sacked and I would still go for him now regardless of his small club comment. If we don't go for top managers/ coaches are we not just confirming what he said about being a small club? The man is a winner and a proper tactician and would bring the stability and respect back to the dressing room and pitch.

11.) 16 Oct 2017 17:28:57
For me, it would take a huge and dramatic up turn in out fortunes for Koeman to keep his job. There’s kind of an inevitability about him going. I maybe wrong, and hope I am.

I would love Benitez at Everton. I think the comments made about is being a small club were slightly lost in translation. He was making the point that because Liverpool were flying at the time, teams of lesser ability weee setting up to stifle them and spoil their play. We were streets behind them at the time and did what’s we had to do to try and scrap a result against better clubs. That is what I believe he was getting at.

I understand completely what you are saying regarding playing at the highest level, and Everton can’t offer that right now. My point was more about his off field problems (if true) being more of an incentive to leave than for actual footballing reasons.

18 Nov 2017 10:27:06
Could just be rumours, but I’ve heard a lot made of his off the field problems here in Liverpool and that his desire to get away is more fuelled by this? He is apparently being terrorised by people and he needs to get out of the city. As I say, this could possibly just be total conjecture and tittle tattle! You do have to wonder though why a boyhood blue would want to move away from his club.


{Ed002's Note - It is little to do with who a player supports - they will look for success and the chance to play at the highest level.}

Surely to god, Sam Allardyce cannot seriously be getting the job?

It makes absolute zero sense to employ him, either in a short term role, or long term. Short term - he would have a little bit of an impact and make us difficult to beat, but would take the club backwards and we'd be worse off come the summer. Long term - the man is renown for playing ugly, boring football and would take us even further backwards as a club.

Why can't the people at this?

sorry to be so blunt, but what a load of rubbish! he didn't do too bad last year and he will get it right this season, I'm sure. I'm not his biggest fan, but he must be given time. I liked Moyes, he had a couple of dodgy seasons and ulimately came good - no matter what you thought of him as a person. Everton do not sack managers on a whim or as a knee jerk reaction to a few bad results. This is not a great time to be involved anywhere near football. So many media obsessed, championship manager playing, microwave fans.

Time to stop reading this board for a bit. Some of the absolute crap being posted is enough to make a vicarious swear. Crying out for “Big Sam”, bemoaning the manner of goals as if they don’t count and hailing Dyche as the second coming, that we should go all out for, is beyond comedy. I know things aren’t great at the moment, but come on, put your rollers in and have a nose in the take a break for bit instead of spreading drivel.

“He has to go”? What? He is the CARETAKER manager mate, not the person to take us forward etc etc. Win all your home games, draw all your aways - you would win the league. Palace may be bottom, but they’re not a bad side. People need to calm down.

Given the direction the club has been heading lately and the woeful performances we’ve seen, I’d say 4 points from 6 is progress. A small amount yes, but progress nonetheless. Signs that some things are slowly getting better, better team selections and better performances in some areas. Perfect, no. Encouraging, a little bit.

Glenn Hoddle is an absolute footballing genius. A brilliant player and a really good manager. Just because he believes in an alternative to the popular thinking, doesn’t make him any less a capable coach and didn’t deserve to be ridiculed and effectively sacked for his religious beliefs. I’m sure there’s actually laws against that kind of thing these days 🤔 But, as usual, the uk media picks the national team manager! I mean, I’d never ridicule someone for their religious beliefs, let alone sack them for them - even if they believed in stories that their god made two penguins waddle all the way to the Middle East from the Arctic to get in a big boat with a million other animals 😂😂😂.
