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.

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.

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..

Does anyone know who the chap is who sits in main stand 2 next to the steps about half way down with a notepad and pen and an ipad?
He's there every game making notes throughout the game then stays behind after the final whistle, with who I presume is his wife, typing furiously into his ipad.
Do any of the local papers use freelance journalists at all?

Probably a blogger.

They used to get locked up back in the day, oh how times hve changed.

Oh wait a mo, The Mrs just told me I am mean blagger.

Winston Wolf solves problems and has a proven track record of doing so, get him in quick!
Okay I know that sounds ridiculous but Sam Allerdyce? Really?

Ps Winston Wolf's probably less corrupt as well.

What an absolute shambolic farce this europa league experience has been.
To try and look on the bright side though (and please take this in the spirit it's intended) at least we won't have to watch Martina for a while :-)

Rhapsody in Blue

1.) 02 Nov 2017 19:58:37
That’s pretty harsh. That injury looked serious.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 20:00:51
That is rubbish rhapsody that how bad we r as a club right now with that comment.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 20:09:04
Apologies if I offended anyone, it was meant as a little joke to try and lift the spirits a bit.
I did try to put that across in the original post but if anyone has taken offence then I can only apologise. Sorry folks.

{Ed025's Note - no problems this end mate..

4.) 02 Nov 2017 20:16:05
Rhapsody in Blue: whatever Martina’s limitations are as a player, his injury looked serious and your tasteless comment is definitely not in the right spirit and is well out of order.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 20:31:20
Rhapsody in Blue apology accepted - we move on.



02 Nov 2017 11:05:36
I just can't get excited about the game this evening.
At the start of our campaign this season both in Europe and the league, I was so looking forward to both.
We were signing players who looked like they would transform the squad into a team who would play fast attacking football and would have a really good go in the Europa League, with night time football under the floodlights at the old lady back on the menu.
Fast forward 3 months and I really can't believe how much we've let ourselves down, to the point where I'm really not that bothered whether I watch the game later or not.
Oh well, rant over, time to find a tall tree and short rope : (.

jurgen klopp has contacted koeman, not to offer his sympathies but to see if he fancies a few games at centre back.

I think he'd be an astute signing Al, there's not many players who are also fully qualified referees.

(Ok I know he's not really but he certainly thought he was last week)

You can't do any worse than Martinez or Koeman Smit.

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.

On the other hand he may take them down ala Sunderland.
Has any manager ever had 2 separate teams relegated in successive seasons?

Maybe he just didn't want it Robbie? I've worked with quite a few people who are very good at what they do and would make a good boss but are happy to play a support role rather than a lead role.

I second that leinster. If what has been reported is true I'm suprised Duncan kept so calm with them. No one's bigger than the club, if they don't like it here then move them on.

When their second goal went in the couple who sit next to me in the main stand swore loudly then made a big point of walking out; they couldn't have got any further than Goodison Road before Niasse scored our first.
I had a wry little laugh to myself as I pictured them trying to pursade the stewards to let them back in. Their loss, this is Everton, never say never.
