We are all puzzled to what is going on at the moment?
Have the board had a meeting in Haydock or there is a meeting planned this week?
Is it a clause in the contract and we save money waiting until June?
Or is the board going to be patient and not listen to the fans reaction to recent results in the hope it's going to change like Kendall era or Ferguson at Utd?
Another thing I thought of is if they did have a meeting in Haydock and decide to sack Roberto with the Hillsborough inquest verdict announced today it may delay our announcement of any such news, it is something that Bill would do and as a club we have respect for others and more dignified than other clubs.

Robbie

{Ed025's Note - there are that many rumours going around that its hard to tell which stories have credence robbie, even people close to the club are unsure of what is happening, your last point is interesting and is yet another spanner in the works mate..


1.) 26 Apr 2016 08:45:39
I've thought the same thing Robbie.


2.) 26 Apr 2016 10:56:38
I think the comment about Everton delaying a managerial announcement until after the Hillsborough inquest verdict is a good point well made, as EFC and BK have always shown the greatest respect and solidarity towards that issue and the families involved.

I believe in Evans last minute on loan and sign him for free when contract expires like what happened to Cleverley, Lennon or Januzai still negotiating, Charlie Austin and a surprise no10.

I think we will all be pleased with this and not selling anyone.

Robbie

1.) 11 Aug 2015 16:54:10
If we brought in 5 players we would have to sell 2 because we only have 3 empty registration spaces?


2.) 11 Aug 2015 21:44:33
Jayfawls you may be right I don't know but I think some of the current squad can be replaced as they can go to u21s. Not sure though


 

 

16 Jan 2015 18:44:48
Does anyone know if eto does leave is it a free or will we get a transfer fee for him. If he does go I would imagine he is on a good wage which would free our budget for maybe another couple of players. Part of me will be sorry to see him go as his experience could be handy in Europa but it could allow us to get a winger in like Delefeou we already got Naismith and Barkley to play the no 10 role. So it could be a blessing in disguise.

Robbie

{Ed025's Note - i very much doubt there will be a fee robbie..


1.) It will be 1 million, been told the deal is all but done and will be in the sampdoria squad for the game against inter on Wednesday.


2.) 18 Jan 2015 15:00:22
sky Italia report deal agreed Everton have denied the rumour meaning he's on his way!


 

 

19 Jul 2014 19:32:21
It is obvious Lukaku is our number one target and fingers crossed we get him. If we don't who will be our other choices. If LFC are signing remy we have a better chance of signing bony. Other possible strikers Torres, welbeck?

Robbie

1.) Welbeck! Welbeck! Welbeck!!!!!


2.) 19 Jul 2014 20:26:52
strong rumours linking barkley with man city hope its not true


3.) Not Welbeck . You agree ed?

{Ed025's Note - deffo mac mate..


4.) 19 Jul 2014 21:00:00
Both couldn't hit water if they fell out of a boat, wouldn't pay 3p and a packet of transform a snack for both of them, i'd like bony and with each day that passes, the more I want lukaku but welbeck and torres couldn't get into double figures if you put them one on one 300 times each in a season, other options? Heskey and bring brett angel out of retirement, both would do a better job than welbeck and torres


5.) Please not Welbeck or Torres. Although the thought of Torres rediscovering his form (unlikely as that is) at Everton and scoring the winner in the derby has enough merit that perhaps we should give him a chance if he's on a free? OK, no, not even on a free. I'm gutted at news of Remy going to the RS for 8.5m. He scores goals and is surely worth more than that? I couldn't bear them to sell Borini, get Remy and have 5m left over. If they do, what about Origi who looked class at the World Cup? Jay Rodriguez? Is Benteke fit yet?


6.) 20 Jul 2014 11:02:16
Should move on obviously doesn't want to play for us rob is should go for bony


 

 

28 Mar 2014 09:46:39
I think we need to spend big in the summer to take the next step to have a strong squad instead if a string 1st team. A young RB, Rodwell to cover CB or DCM, Colback as a utility player, Adam Johnson if we can't get Delefeou for another season, lallana, 2 strikers from 1 either Lukaku, bony, Benteke and a loan. Any more news about the young lads from Hearts? £60-65m

Robbie

{Ed002's Note - There is a very good chance that Chelsea will be willing to let a player move on loan to Everton again. They are very pleased with the progress Lukaku has made although circumstances are such now that he will probably be moved on.}


1.) And where exactly will this money come from? You can't say we just need to spend a fortune; that applies to any club in the world.


2.) Don't get all the fuss over Adam Johnson. One trick pony who blows hot and cold. Too inconsistent and not what we need IMHO. Rather we put a bid in for Redmond from Norwich.


3.) Redmond isn't exactly pulling up trees at norwich.much better out there.


4.) 28 Mar 2014 22:14:27
I've said this before, but will repeat myself for those who did not see. Deloufeu will be back in an everton shirt next season, think a man city striker will come in on loan, but not one of their big guns. My honest feeling is lukaku is roberto's priority, but if cost is too much (surplus of 20mill) we will move on to sign bony instead. I believe the remaining targets will be foreign and therefore can not clarify who we may bring in additionally as I don't think martinez even knows yet who he would prefer.


5.) 29 Mar 2014 00:06:09
So you're in the know craig? Not one of sittehs big guns? Well that leaves one man, john guidetti, seriously? Seriously? I mean I like the kid but he's had a lot of injuries and can't buy a game for stoke, I doubt martinrz is looking at him and any ideas which chelsea player ed? Please god don't be mikel or the crap hazard and not ba or torres, piazon? Courtois? Salah? I doubt it, let me dream!

Can anyone explain why at club level we have u23's and internationals are still u21's. I would think it would be best to have consistency for both.

Robbie

{Ed002's Note - There is an U23 league in England and other countries have U23 sides which play at the Olypics and at friendly level. England cannot play in the Olympics.}


1.) 06 Sep 2016 13:56:35
Just seems inconsistent throughout the FA. I have real gripe at the moment that at u12's level certain areas have adopted 9v9, academies the same playing the pitch 18yd line to 18yd line with smaller goals. In my area they voted against it and playing 11 v 11 full size goals. Common sense needs to prevail the tallest of u12 has no chance in a full goal. Playing on a smaller pitch would have players having more touches on the ball improving technique rather than whoever is the strongest and fastest. Rant over and sorry I know it's not Everton related.

{Ed002's Note - It is not the responsibility of The FA per se. There is co-ordination at the grass roots level and with County FAs. There is a lot to be learned from other countries (France and the Netherlands come to mind) but I am not an expert at anything with kiddies football I am afraid.}


2.) 06 Sep 2016 14:59:47
Thanks for your replies ed it is just frustrating when you put time in and statistics prove it from elsewhere. I am not saying all regions are like this but some don't want to move forward with the times and we have dinosaurs as chairman of the counties junior leagues.


 

 

22 Jul 2016 19:19:37
Ed can you explain please how our new DOF will work, I know you have explained a lot on this subject recently. The DOF will be responsible for recruitment is every manager/ DOF relationship different. As I thought RK is the coach, takes training tactics etc. DOF head of recruitment but I seen what Steve Walsh said "Mr Koeman certainly knows what he wants and I am going to try and fulfil that with the players that he desires in the positions he wants. "

This says to me RK is calling the shots on transfers and SW is negotiating the deals. My personal opinion is this is the best way otherwise the DOF can bring in players they the coach doesn't want. I'm sure a lot of it is communication and team work between the two. Thanks.

Robbie

{Ed001's Note - Koeman will tell Walsh what kind of player he wants and the position, Walsh will go and find the best available options. He is a recruitment specialist. It was him who convinced first Nigel Pearson, then, after Pearson was sacked, Claudio Ranieri, that Kante was the right man for the central midfield role.

People say Leicester was an anomaly, but it was not, Walsh has been spotting the right players for a long time now. The thing that makes him special is that he doesn't take notice of the things that put off most people. Most people are put off by the way someone moves or like someone because of the way they move. Some players look wrong, for various reasons, in the role they play, but Walsh looks past it.}


1.) 22 Jul 2016 20:21:50
Thanks Ed for explanation.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome.}


2.) 22 Jul 2016 22:32:23
Ed001 I don't know if you have read any of my posts but I get toldI am very negative and have a "told you so attitude". A month or so back I posted that the best thing we could do would be to target the Southampton player "spotters" responsible for bringing in so many top players and that Mr Koeman may very well be a brilliant manager, but players were being signed and sold by Southampton before Koeman arrived. yet they were heading up the table whilst we plummetted down it. This was my "realistic" rather than negative comment but it got some criticism for being negative. My point is. do you think Southampton have a similar approach. ie Koeman is used to working this way and will be very happy to get the recomendations from Walsh? This actually seems exactly what we need, but will take a season or two before any benefits will really be seen. Immediate signings are likely to be difficult and players usually take a few months to bed in anyway. Some of my fellow Blues I fear are an impatient lot.

{Ed001's Note - yes, that is exactly how Saints worked as well, using a mix of stats analysis and scouting to target players for the positions they need filling. Koeman had a limited input there in choosing players, but it meant he could concentrate on working on the team, as he could trust the recruitment department to find the right players at the right price.

The issue is that it might take Walsh a season or so to get things set up correctly at Everton. So it could be two or three seasons before you can begin to get the best from the new set up. Patience will be required.}


3.) 23 Jul 2016 08:17:02
Thanks. That confirms my thoughts. So now the negative bit. I think we signed some very poor players under RM and it will take 2 or 3 seasons for us to recover to the level where we were when David Moyes left. It will probably take another season or 2 before we are up in the European places. I just hope 2 things are true. 1. Mr Mori and hismoney continues flowing in to Everton. 2. Our fans are patient enough to realise progress is being made. Our current lack of signings to date seems to be upsetting some fans.


4.) 23 Jul 2016 08:18:59
Forgot to say. this is not a new system. Clough and Taylor used it at Nottingham Forest when they built their twice winning European Cup team. Clough worked with the team whilst Taylor found the players.

Anyone else see the league of hate for premier league, would agree with most of it. Crystal palace a few place higher possibly, oh and Liverpool up two places! Lol.

Robbie

1.) 21 Jul 2016 11:46:12
I pretty much agree with that table. I'm surprised that the Southampton fans harbour so much animosity towards us even though we did take Koeman. If I were them I'd not be too pleased with Koeman but it's not our fault really.

Eds any info on our transfer targets I seen a post yesterday saying will try today to do it. Have you heard of any interest from us for Arnautovic from Stoke? I think he would give us the perfect balance on the left and also a bit more physical. After looking at the French team they are mostly big physical players if you look at our first team I think it needs to be more physical also.
Coleman, stones, Mori, Baines
Mcarthy, Besic, delefeou, Cleverley or Mirrallas, Barkley, Lukaku.

Take out Stones and Lukaku then it really is week. The premier league has always been a physical league and if you look at mourinho teams his full backs and cm are tall and physical.
Probably get away with our fullbacks but would like to see one physical midfielder alongside either Mcarthy or Besic. Arnautovic on the left and Sissoko on the right and have Mirrallas and delefeou as alternative options depending on opposition. I know this would be controversial but Fellaini to play off the striker as another option when needed again when Ross unable to break a team down all good teams need variety and these would make us a threat.

Robbie

{Ed002's Note - Arnautovic is not of interest at this time. I am travelling for a few days so unable to provide an update just now.}

Let's hope he keeps his head down and doesn't come if the rails. I am sure Roberto will keep him on track.

My brother in-law who is a LFC season ticket holder (I know nobody is perfect) was talking to a fellow supporter he knows well he was saying he used to be best friends with s Fletcher's old man but his father has passed away but stays in touch and was saying fletcher is signing for everton.
I know it's rumour but thought I would share it.

No Keith It wasn't me. I thought he did live in Preston I remember a couple of years ago I was in Preston for a wedding due I visited the local chinese chippy and there's a photo of DM in chippy with staff they said he is a regular. Maybe he just likes the chips from his preston days. All the rumours on this site sound fishy.
Our manager has just been voted manager of the month after winning three games, a few weeks when the chips where down people where calling for his head. People need to stop being so fickle and support our team when everything is sweet and sour. I am as frustrated at times as other fellow blues we either start the season well or finish it well there is no point doing it half & half we need consistency. {Ed025's Note - good stuff robbie..

The England set up is a farce and has been for years, the last decent manager we had was Bobby Robson. In my opinion there is to much politics with the FA and its no coincidence that players from favourable clubs are selected. If Baines and Barkley where at Man Utd they would be playing or at least be in the squad. If Rashford was at another club he would not have gone to the euros. Walcott would not be selected if he was at smaller club. Would Clyne be selected if he was still at Southampton?
I always remember Andy Cole when banging in the goals for Newcastle was not selected but as soon as he signed for Man Utd he was England's main striker!
To many conspiracies over the years for this to be a coincidence and probably has an impact on why players want to move clubs the more favoured.

Robles came into the team last year and played well with a number of clean sheets, I think both keepers are ok and be happy good back ups but over the course of the season they will make to many mistakes, we need to invest in a first team keeper that will be inbetween the stick for the next few years. Whether that's Hart, Butland or Forster.
