Hi ED, just wondering if you think we might get the ukrainian in January, or do you think that bird has flown the nest


{Ed025's Note - we will certainly try simon, but he will be much sought after by teams who will be willing to pay a lot more than us mate, so although we have a chance im not holding my breath..

1.) 09 Sep 2015 16:27:50
the Ukrainian dose not seem to keen on joining us plus barca r supposed to be making a move for him in January ed where we ever interested in segi Roberto from barca if so how close where we to making a bid for him

{Ed025's Note - it was more speculation than fact duke, they wanted him farmed out and we have a good relationship with barca so people put that together and came up with us mate..



31 Aug 2015 15:57:30
Hi Ed, just been reading we might be intrested in going for a loan with mikel from Chelsea, do you think there's any truth and would they do business after the stone dealings .


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Everton in John Obi. Chelsea are certainly willing to let him leave at the right price - I don't think anyone has suggested he will be loaned anywhere. Besiktas were given permission to talk to the player but I am sure he would like to stay in England.}

1.) 31 Aug 2015 16:15:00
Sorry just read so much lately wasn't sure where I read it, soccernet Nigeria , says it all really , still would like to see him at Everton

2.) 31 Aug 2015 16:31:06
Please god no, makes Youssuf Mulumbo look like Patrick Viera.

3.) 31 Aug 2015 16:35:22
I think mikel is a good player, and although it's not a position we particularly need filled I would still him come. I read that it was a loan with a view to a purchase at the end of the season type deal.

{Ed025's Note - i think he is awful lee..

4.) 31 Aug 2015 16:42:02
Fair enough Ed, all our own opinions. But I think one thing we can agree on is that he won't be signing tomorrow either way.

5.) 31 Aug 2015 18:30:56
Forget any player from Chelsea coming to Everton after Stones knock back, more chance of Rooney signing for Liverpool



31 Aug 2015 08:59:18
Hi ed, do you think there could be any last minute activity with the ukrainian chap, I mean would they really keep him for another year then lose him for free, or do you think they have hoped for a bigger offer and Everton maybe waiting to pounce at the last minute, just a hopeful idea.


{Ed002's Note - Not involving Everton - he has said he doesn't want to join the club.}

1.) 31 Aug 2015 12:22:53
According to Kiev President he could come in January. He was happy with the offer and the deal but it came too late for them to find a like for like replacement. They simply do not want to be humiliated in the CL, os that was the stumbling block.

Right instead of the same old rubbish about our manager staying or going, let's see who if given 150million to spend on players, who and why would you buy them
Left back, Bertram 25million
Central defender- Maguire 35million
Central midfield-nzonzi 45million
Central midfield - Wilshire free
Striker -rashford 45million
I've only gone for premiership players who are tried and trusted.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 16:14:37
Manager: Tedesco. I'd prefer if we gave the job to a young upcoming manager with fresh ideas.

LB: Tierney - 20 million. Highly unlikely he'd come because he seems rooted in Scotland but looks a cracking prospect. Another name I think the club should consider is Grimaldo from Benfica, although he seems out of our reach. Realistically I'd say Bertrand.

CB: Koulibaily - 50 million. Again, unlikely as perhaps this ship has sailed. Plus why would he want to leave Serie A title contenders to come to us, unless he was a money grabber. Other names I'd consider are Tah from Bayer or De Vrij from Lazio, again, unrealistic but the OP said who would you want ;) . Realistically either Zouma or Toprak from Dortmund.

LW: Gelson Martins - 40 million. Can't say i've seen much of this guy, only clips on youtube but he has pace to frighten any defence and looks a real threat with his crosses, chips in with a few goals too. Other players would include Konoplyanka, he could be persuaded if Tedesco came in as manager and probably going to be an unpopular opinion but I wouldn't mind Iago Aspas either. Although he played for the shower i think he's a good player. Some players just don't fit in at clubs and I think that was the case for him at Liverpool. Realistically I'd say Zaha.

ST: Bakambu - 35 million. We've been linked with him for a few seasons now and whenever I take the time to watch some la liga games the guy looks tailor made for the Prem. He's strong, has good control and linkup play, not to mention he has pace to burn. Other names i'd consider are Batshuayi, Belotti - seems to have went quiet on him over the past year after showing so much promise, and Gomez from Atalanta. Really liked the look of him when we played them in the Europa League. Realistically I'd say Vardy.

{Ed025's Note - i think you should replace walsh BB..

2.) 15 Mar 2018 16:36:28
don't know where you're getting these prices from in common market, rashford 45mill? one of the worlds rising stars. we got sigi for 45!

3.) 15 Mar 2018 16:52:37
Haha, I wouldn't mind the money he's on Ed. I'll send my CV over ;)

{Ed025's Note - you should do mate..

5.) 15 Mar 2018 18:43:03
Joe Bryan - top quality young left back. Already playing above championship level
Alfie Mawson - not that dealing with Swansea is any fun, but one of their best players and CBs around.
Steven N'Zonzi - class midfield enforcer and quality.
Emil Forsberg - been an integral part of Leipzig's exciting season
Vincent Aboubakar - a gamble, but a tough, quick goalscorer and only 22.
Or spend the Β£150 Million on a time machine and bring back Dixie Dean.

6.) 15 Mar 2018 20:20:19
Kieron Tierney at left back for me, good shout for others but for me, that would be my number one target in the summer.

7.) 15 Mar 2018 22:27:26
Wblue and everyone who disagreed, I said it was a bit of fun, I didn't say everyone has to agree, or the prices are correct, fun fun fun, just put who you would like, not argue about what I put, πŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜›.

8.) 16 Mar 2018 06:05:02
Left Back Shaw or Tierney
Centre Half Mawson or Mee
Midfield Doucoure or Nzonzi
Forwards 2 out of Dembele, Batshuayi, Shaquiri or Zaha

Out to balance the squad
Martina - I think Kenny is better right back cover
Besic - although I wish him well
Ramires - he doesn't want to come back and hasn't proved himself although time in the team very limited
Bolassie - no final ball too many times.

9.) 16 Mar 2018 06:24:29
Thinking some more about it I'd have to add Niasse to the outs list.
I love his attitude and effort but too often the move breaks down due to poor control or a bad pass.

10.) 16 Mar 2018 07:01:06
Bw. I'd keep Bolasie, last season he only played 12 games but had 4 assists and a goal. He just needs to hit his peak again.

11.) 16 Mar 2018 09:10:57
It's all a matter of opinions SMIT666 and I can understand where you are coming from but personally I'd rather keep Lookman and Vlasic as I think there is more potential there and I'd pick Zaha or Shaquiri over Bolassi

Another one to go would be Garbutt- not because he has done anything wrong but because he hasn't been given the chance to do anything wrong and he must be so frustrated.

12.) 16 Mar 2018 20:26:08
I completely overlooked a name for CB. Anyone remember Nastasic who used to play for City? I think he'd be a brilliant signing for us. Thought he was excellent in his breakthrough season with City but injuries cost him afterwards. He seems to have put that behind him now is has had a solid couple of seasons with Schalke. I think he'd probably be available around the 20-25 million mark too. Any interest in him?



09 Mar 2018 18:53:27
As we have bought a few players in this year, but as we can see a lot of the foreign players haven't been up to it, Do you think we will try and buy good players that are available in the premiership just to get us back to a solid team then the following year try to get players from outside the premiership again.


1.) 09 Mar 2018 21:39:43
Fair shout that mate, but then Williams and Keane came in with prem experience and have been shocking. I think there’s something wrong with the scouting because so many mistakes have been made.

2.) 09 Mar 2018 21:43:08
Simontoffeeman69 'a lot of the foreign players haven't been up to it' you must have a crystal ball that works mate. The rest of us have no idea because the 'foreign players' have not been given a chance. I have watched our U23's about as much (their home ground is near mine) as our first team squad (season ticket) , and they are a good team however, the likes of Sandro, Tosun et al up to now have not been given a sniff.

3.) 10 Mar 2018 06:58:07
Next season should give us an idea if the foreign players are good enough, the ones we keep anyway.
The likes of Klassen, Sandro won't be involved in world cup action so should get a full pre season.

4.) 10 Mar 2018 09:55:21
Good call that Smit666.

5.) 10 Mar 2018 15:02:08
It's easy to say they haven't been given a sniff, but it's not just one manager that hasn't picked them, so yes it maybe down to what ever, but at the end of the day if there good enough they will be picked and then they can show how good they are, but when they have played they are well off the pace, kean when he first came in looked good, but had now been in a team that has constantly lost threw out the season, he hasn't played with the same person for long enough to gel, I personally think he will be fine, he was a ball winner, keoman tried to turn him into a ball player, that's when his form dipped, along with the rubbish he's had in front of him. When your in your box defending for 90 mins your bound to end up making mistakes due to all the pressure your under,



07 Mar 2018 17:51:41
Just wondering what people think of Silva being our manager, just think he could still do a good job or us, I think different club and players and he now knows the premiership so would need to come in not knowing any of the players from other clubs, I just look at the manager from Swansea, got sacked from the championship and is flourishing now, I personally think Silva lost the dressing room, once they new he wanted to join us and that was when the results started dropping for him.


1.) 07 Mar 2018 19:44:00
Silva likes to play fast attacking football and I don't think we have the personnel to play that way.
Not without signing another 8 players in the summer. Which would probably be a bad idea.
Take pardew for instance, he is struggling to get the team to play to his style, west Brom have always been a hard working defensively solid team.
Man u under mourinho don't play the style of football United fans expect, and as soon as they stop winning cups i' m pretty sure they'll turn on him and he'll leave.

We need a manager who fits our club ethos and players we have.
We need the steel, grit and hard work that all pre Martinez everton teams have had.
Sprinkle that with some hard working quality players and you have the perfect everton recipe.

2.) 07 Mar 2018 23:59:53
Smit what do you think of City? Do you think they play like city of old?

I think they embraced real change in the club. Committed to it, brought the personnel to do it and are now the best team in the league because of it.

Not sure I want a team full of grit like what Moyes had because it doesn't win trophies. Alternatively, I would prefer a manager who breathes success through imagination and determination and for the club to fully commit to it.

The ethos of Everton that I remember is evolution, revolution and reinvention. Our past is littered with it. πŸ˜‰.

3.) 08 Mar 2018 06:22:04
Agree with the city thing and I am sure we could evolve too but, it has to happen gradually and we need a load more money to buy those type of players If that is want EFC want to do.

4.) 08 Mar 2018 08:25:19
City today have been years in the making, so many managers before getting arguably the best, and so many players before this current group.
We are still building and rebuilding until we get the right mix as well.

5.) 08 Mar 2018 11:34:14
I think the problem we have got at Everton is all because of the Moyes era.

11 years with one manager makes people forget what Everton were before Moyes. Degsy (not having a go Degsy it's your choice and I understand why) is a perfect example. He always uses Moyes era to compare any era after it. I prefer the successful teams we've had as those teams and managers got it right.

When you've got 1 manager for so long it's hard to see anything else and we've got a whole generation now thinking his way was the best way when in fact, it was 11 years wasted and made him one of the least successful managers in our history.

By the way smit i don't think you are this. I've heard enough on here to know you're a pretty open minded fan and you've got a common sense approach. It's more my explanation of why we find it tough to change as a club.



16 Dec 2017 12:47:24
Haven't been on here for a while as there were so many people just saying negative stuff I just turned this site off.
I've now come back to see what the comments are like now, it's so funny how we all think we no better, I no this is a site where we show are passion for our club, but I really do think we should trust in the powers with in out club, yes they don't get them right every time and mistakes happen, SM being our manager I think was the best thing for the club, we were going seriously wrong, to many new players at one time, players being slagged off in public by the previous manager, now we have someone who can put an arm around a player, encourage the players who have no quite got to where the team need them to be, but isn't afraid to drop them or change there position, I look at our team now and it's a completely different team, anyone who thinks it was down to rhino you are very mistaken, big Sam was in the stand and the team played for him and it's carried on, he talks and they listen, people may say it's all long ball, defensive, but it's results, he has done a cracking job in a very short time, I look back at moyes he did this year on year with hardly any funds, if moyes had a top striker his team's would of been at the door of the top 4, he left and what have we done, big money spent and not alot, hopeful with Sam we can get into the elite, we may need some luck along the way and it maybe to late this year, but he needs credit where credits due, get behind our team threw good and bad, not just the good times.


1.) 16 Dec 2017 13:37:40
Good post Simontoffeeman69.

2.) 16 Dec 2017 14:10:49
Yep I agree. Said in another post. imagine Lukaku in Moyes' last team. The one that knocked Man Utd out of the semis and lost 2 1 to Chelsea. That team with Lukaku would have done ok. But back to your point yes Sam needs time now to lay a foundation. Remember he is not so young so Unsworth may get his chance in the future.

3.) 16 Dec 2017 14:42:54
Yes good post Simon. As far as luck is concerned I have always believed that you made your own luck, however when it came to being jammy Liverpool always got the top award. However now since Big Sam took charge we have got a penalty against them, Mane made the wrong choice in not passing and Newcastle hit the post twice. Liverpool on the other hand had our penalty against them and had a goal disallowed in their last game. Hopefully this trend will continue.
By the way for my old friends on here I have morphed from 1940Mike and several other Mike designations to Blue Mike since I lost all my passwords and my old e-mail. Still the same old Mike.

4.) 16 Dec 2017 16:18:50
Yes blue Mike, you really do make your own luck. I see this with newcastle this season.

5.) 16 Dec 2017 16:20:45
Good post Simon.

I think BlueMike sounds a lot better than 1940Mike as well mate.



29 Aug 2015 23:48:38
I would like to no, why is it WBA say they've put a bid in for Evans, then a couple of days later he's signed, us on the other hand, weeks later still waiting to sign these players or something that holds everything up


1.) 30 Aug 2015 06:05:30
Evans didn't need international clearance or a work permit mate.

Some players don't always have good games every week, but what they do can make the other team play different, he may make a run, play a pass, but it will effect the way the match turns out, so as a team today everyone played there part, weather you think he played well or not, take one part out and the team play different and the outcome changes, take for instance, if gueue had played with Rooney, would he have been running forward or staying back, which then let's there midfield move forward, which puts us under pressure, then the whole team starts getting further and further back, today we played attacking and pinned them back and got our goals, just because a player may of not played the ball or gave it away, he may of made runs that makes the other team sit back and not move forward, never change a winning team. we won be happy.

All you have to do is look at other clubs who have been sold to over sea investors with only the interest in making money over the interest of the club, and look at them now, Bill has got a lot wrong and bullshitted his way threw a lot of stuff, but his intention are for the club, he waited till the right person came along to try and move us into the top tear of the league, so now one can really say he's not tried to do the best for the club.

Please tell me which of those managers would choose Everton!
If we can pick from any manager and they would come, of course it makes no difference, but who are we going to go for, yes a young manager with limited experience abroad who will have to come over and try to do his best not knowing anything, adapt to living here, language, speed of the prem, it's all to much of a risk.

WBA Evans at a push
Southampton tadic and Austin

West ham cresswell, lanzini, Arnotovic, And carol
Huddersfield only one would be the big striker who I can't remember his name, but that would be same as carol if we wanted a target man for a plan B.
