Barkley turns down Chelsea? What exactly is it this lad wants? He states he wants a new challenge but turns down a move to the current champions and the possibility of champions league football, staggering if true.

Wants Spurs mate.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 21:36:48
Maybe he's having second thoughts. It took me two goes to move away from Liverpool. And I missed home for years.
I for one would be happy if he stayed. Think he still has an awful lot to offer.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 21:51:26
Know idea what the hell is going on in Barkley's head, but he does seem to be listerning to some very strange advice, for all the fact that this lad has betrayed all those supporters that stood by him in a whole range of substandard performances, you still hope that someone would sit him down and tell him a few home truths. Frances Jeffers is a sad tale of someone who could have had a great career, but ended with a host of regrets.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 21:54:06
Knowing Ross he turned Chelsea down as he didn't fancy London, if only someone could tell Ross Spurs are in London, whilst waiting for the tumbleweed to pass.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 22:27:40
Betrayed? That's a bit strong mate.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 22:54:09
I don't think it is, we blasted Rooney when he left us but the fee he got for us at the time was massive at a time when we were well short of money, i'm Barkleys biggest fan but I feel he is messing us around, first of all he turns down our contract offer where he is loved by fans, now the champions offer him everything a footballer could want for what a move to Spurs that basically don't want him that much as there not interested in him. I hope he is happy as he has done everything wrong and it's his fault not the agents. He should think about that tonight his career is going horribly wrong.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 23:22:15
got a feeling he'll stitch us up and leave for nothing can sign a pre contract with spurs in Jan. so can see levy saying stay put and you'll save me loads pf money.

8.) 01 Sep 2017 11:25:15
I understand that under the rules he could only sign a pre-contract with a non-English club in January - although his agent (s) could no doubt have something agreed "unofficially" with a Premier League club.

9.) 01 Sep 2017 20:59:20
You may have blasted Rooney I didn't. The lad was just doing what we would all do, make as much as he can in the time he has. Oh and win things, which he did. If Ross wants to play for Spurs then that's his business. He signed a contract and he's seeing it out. As a contractor I have done that many times, and all footballers are contractors in the end.

SSN reporting Gareth Barry is at West Brom having a medical. Be a shame to lose his experience and presence but good luck to him and thanks for the service he provided.

Rhapsody in Blue

1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:23:22
Probably the best solution all round. West Brom get a good player, Barry gets more game time and we get a transfer fee.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 12:39:44
Just hope we invest in another midfielder if he goes.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 16:05:33
Goodluck and thanks to gaz top player and great roll model to youger players . In my 10 of best premier league midfielders 👍.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 20:19:48
Nice reply Kingkoeman sentiments I am sure will be thought by many of us.



05 Jul 2017 15:12:36
My all time favourite Everton number 11 Kevin Sheedy has decided to leave Everton.
Goodbye and good luck for the future Sheeds and thanks so many fond memories, it's difficult to pick a favourite one.

Rhapsody in Blue

Not that difficult. His goal to seal the 1985 European Cup Winner's Cup Final just after they'd pulled a goal back against the run of play.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 19:09:32
Putting two fingers up to the kop is up there 😂.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 21:01:00
After much deliberation the twice taken free kick against Ipswich in the FA Cup in 1985 dies it for me.
Round the wall one way - goal disallowed.
No problem, round the wall the other way - goal given - legend!

Croatia's Ivan Peresic looks like some player. Would really love to see him at Everton.

Rhapsody in Blue

{Ed002's Note - Everton were interested before he joined Inter. But not now. Enquiries about the availability of Inter's winger Ivan Perisic have been made by Dortmund and Chelsea. Inter don't want to sell but they need to meet the FFP requirements and will for the right price have to let him leave. Arsenal are known to have spoken with his representatives but have yet to approach Inter. Chelsea's interest remains but Dortmund will likely shift their interest to another. Performances at an international level have given a certain amount of amunition to his representative to get entry to talk to a number of the "elite" European sides to see what interest they may have. As for those asking about the interest of Liverpool, Perisic was a player, like Mkhitaryan, who saw their game stiffled by Klopp's rather naive kopflose huhn style of training and play - and he chose to leave because of that. It seems unlikely that he would wish to move back in to such a situation.}

1.) 25 Jun 2016 21:05:22
Thanks for that Ed. I wasn't really asking about his availability, for me his performances so far have put him out of our range and I'd really expect him to go to a champions league club but, as always, your knowledge and comments are much appreciated. Cheers.



27 May 2016 12:12:24
Eds, apologies if it's a dumb question but did Everton ever make an approach to Jose Mourinho or was it all just silliness and supposition please?

Rhapsody in Blue

{Ed025's Note - it was touted that because mourinho and farhad moshiri are friends that it may happen RIB, whether it was discussed i dont know mate but with jose saying that he would consider a project people sort of put 2+2 together and came up with 5..

1.) 27 May 2016 12:31:21
Thanks for that Ed. Personally I'm glad we never went for him, even if it was only rumours. His ego and the press circus that follows him just isn't Everton.

{Ed025's Note - he is a winner though RIB, but as you say a horrible person..

Apart from their goal (which even Big Nev in his pomp wouldn't have saved) we are playing a lot better than in recent games.
Been a few squeaky bum moments defensively but otherwise a vast improvent although we can play better.
A goal and a point would be nice to get the confidence up for next weekend.

Rhapsody in Blue

{Ed025's Note - we have to get a shot on target for us to get anything though RIB..

1.) 17 Sep 2017 17:08:23
Sorry mate, think we have missed Gareth Barry giving us that shape. we look really poor first half No idea going forward.

2.) 17 Sep 2017 17:29:25
Agree completely Ed, which just isn't happening enough at the moment. However our overall performance and desire has greatly improved from our last couple of games; confidence breeds confidence.

{Ed025's Note - im with you there RIB..



14 Sep 2017 19:33:16
Have these players even met each other before? Never mind train together each day.
It's far too early to even talk about getting rid of Koeman just yet but did we even have a game plan this evening?
What an absolute train wreck of a performance, dreading Sunday now.

Rhapsody in Blue

1.) 14 Sep 2017 19:37:45
Width, pace, guts and creativity lacking. gutted.



14 Sep 2017 16:06:24
Can anybody confirm the game is on tv this evening please? I read somewhere the other day bt are showing it on their showcase channel for free but that channel is still scrambled at the moment.

Rhapsody in Blue

1.) 14 Sep 2017 16:17:06
Yep it is on BT Showcase from 17:30. Unfortunately some Freeview receivers can't pick it up and no longer available on Sky platform.

2.) 14 Sep 2017 16:35:06
Thanks for that chalkie, looks like I'll have to take the dog for a very long walk instead; be a shame if I pass a pub that's showing the game at the same time 😉.

3.) 14 Sep 2017 17:25:15
It's available for streaming on bt app. That's what I saw when I looked online for it. May be wrong though so don't hold me to it lol.

4.) 14 Sep 2017 20:04:16
Just for future games in general you can put an app on your phone called live football games on tv, it tells you what the any given channel it's on.

5.) 14 Sep 2017 20:07:09
Sorry it's called live soccer tv.



22 Aug 2017 12:36:58
Been reading a report that Spurs got £4.5m from Swansea as part of a sell on clause for Gylfi Sigurdsson and are planning to use that to help fund the Barkley transfer.
If true, and this is what they've been waiting for before putting their bid in, love him or hate him, Levy is one ruthless businessman.

Rhapsody in Blue

1.) 22 Aug 2017 12:57:17
He certainly always puts one over on us in any deal.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 14:27:27
Sounds like a skint business man to me.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 14:39:59
if he buys Ross then we have had the last laugh.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 22:22:40
A skint business man who's just spent £72million.

{Ed007's Note - You talking about Ed025's and his bar bill from his weekend sojourn north of the border?}



10 Aug 2017 17:39:03
Hi Eds I wonder if you could answer a question for me please?
What are the conditions for a transfer to go to a tribunal please?
With the GS transfer dragging on for so long and both parties apparently at fault for negotiations breaking down, is there a chance this could be resolved by a tribunal?
Thanks in advance.

Rhapsody in Blue

{Ed002's Note - No the GS transfer won't go to tribunal. A tribunal is a gathering of the Professional Football Compensation Committee to resolve matters of compensation for players under 24 moving when out of contract. It is chaired by someone with an appropriate background in law - a sports barrister or an independent contracts lawyer would be examples. The other members will be representatives of the LMA, PFA, leagues the club play in (e.g. Premier League, Championship etc.) and two footballing representatives. They will be unbiased.}

1.) 11 Aug 2017 10:48:40
Thanks for that Ed002. A clear, concise and easy to understand answer.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome man.}

2.) 11 Aug 2017 14:06:56
Why would it go to tribunal player under contract and our bid not accepted simple as that, like Swansea manager said the deal is at a stage of a compromise so saying this deal will happen, only issue that I have is that
1. He is not playing in pre season
2. Swansea can't get on with there transfer business
3. He will be 2-3 weeks away from what our other players at at.

If that is the case and his only motivation is his own financial gain he's showing a total lack of respect for the club that nurtured him and stood by him during his terrible injuries.

Still not convinced you're not Cowpat Sid posting under another name Bobby.
Your attention to detail and intuitive posts are so much like Sid's used to be it's eerie.
Please don't take that as an insult, it's meant as a compliment.

Fulham's 18-year-old England under 23 international Dennis Adeniran joined Everton on transfer deadline day and has gone straight into the under 23 squad. He made 3 first team appearances for Fulham last season, their fans are apparently fuming he was sold.

I've searched all the tv listings and can't find it anywhere stig, unless you can find a pub with a dodgy satellite box.
It's going to be radio merseyside with Ronny Goodlass and a few beers for me I'm afraid.
