Ed’s what are our chances of buying Callum Wilson?

Singing the Blues

{Ed002's Note - Around zip I would think.}


1.) 02 Jan 2019 15:42:13
Thanks. (Sort of 😏)


2.) 04 Jan 2019 13:43:03
Same reason as we would not like to sell or loan a player to any Club around us, applies in reverse I would have thought, so agree with Ed on Calum Wilson. Mind you we appear to be a Club that will pay a premium, so you never know.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the reason.}

Ed’s if Gueye leaves to PSG is it likely we sign Doucoure from Watford?

Singing the Blues

{Ed002's Note - Abdoulaye Doucoure is the other player PSG are considering but Watford would want a very significant fee for him and already have a replacement in mind who will cost far less and will give them a good profit. Everton, or in particular Silva, like Doucoure but I have no doubts that Watford would be reluctant to sell to Everton unless there is a significant premium paid.}


1.) 28 Dec 2018 12:08:08
As long as better replacement is found for Gana, then I wouldn't worry, he always has his best games when we play against the top six teams and we have significantly less possession of the ball, however when we play a team we are expected to beat, moves tend to break down when he's asked to do a little more than chase down runners, and get knocks on the ball to break play up, he struggles when he has too much time on the ball.

Morata from Chelsea?
Lukaku from Utd?
Ed’s? Any chance you think?

Singing the Blues

{Ed002's Note - They won’t be joining Everton.}


1.) 17 Dec 2018 01:25:28
I know not Everton related but what’s happened to Morata when he first arrived he looked really good. Reminded me of a young Fernando Torres.


2.) 17 Dec 2018 10:33:50
Morata - From what I've seen of him he's not - imo - much better than what we already have. Lukaku - I think he would consider it a step backwards.

Any updates on Schneiderlin injury?

Singing the Blues

1.) 24 Aug 2018 18:38:38
Think MS said he’d be back training on Monday or Tuesday and could be available next weekend.

Sam Allardyce made a comment on Sky the other day regarding Evertons transfers. He said something on the lines of Everton have found a new wealth to be paying the for the players they did on TDD. I thought it was a strange comment at the time but with these Usmanov rumours circulating today maybe it has been agreed in principle already? Makes sense for a businessman to invest now with the ground move etc. Exciting times.

Singing the Blues

1.) 15 Aug 2018 09:55:38
I think it’s probably just Sam trying to pretend that funds weren’t available to him and that’s why he was cack.

Typical Allardyce, really.

Probably one of the worst refereeing performances I have seen in the premier league. Wrong decisions on both sides and not in control of the game.

Singing the Blues

1.) 13 Jan 2019 17:21:51
He tried too hard to keep players on the pitch, including ours. Gomez should have had 2 reds. It seemed he was missing everything.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 17:32:45
Worst performance of the game. Hasn't sent anyone off for 22 games and it shows why.
Everton were guilty of poor conduct but the ref and assistants were nothing short of terrible.


3.) 13 Jan 2019 19:15:29
I'm not saying we didn't deserve them, we could have had a couple of reds too, but 5 yellows for us and none for them?


4.) 13 Jan 2019 20:07:40
Good point BigH. That stat alone tells its own story. Ref had a shocker today. It’s my strong belief that if you have to book someone for descent then the ref has probably got it wrong. It looked like 2 of our players were yellowed for disagreeing with him. I could be wrong though.

{Ed025's Note - i think your right ace..


5.) 13 Jan 2019 20:48:39
He was certainly 'Down' in my estimation Toffee Ace!

Throw-ins - is a part of the game not many people talk about. I have noticed a lot recently the amount of times the team taking the throw lose the ball. It would be interesting to see a stat on this. Especially in the modern game and possession is so vital. Martinez didn’t like corners and would prefer to take a short one to retain the the ball. Surprisingly he was one of the worst from throw ins and we lost the ball so many times.
Has anyone else noticed this?

Singing the Blues

1.) 13 Jan 2019 11:20:17
Old School me. Unless the person taking it has a huge long throw then up/ down the line it goes.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 12:23:28
i say it every week to my lad, there is no movement to create space for the person taking the throw, everyone stands static and a hopeful down the line throw is taken its pathetic really.


3.) 13 Jan 2019 16:37:03
We always look short of options from throw ins, always have done.

I would like to see us playing Bernard as a false 9. Richarlison on the left and Lookman on the left. Gomes and Sigurdson MC with Gueye CDM. Coleman, Keane, Mina and Digne as back four.
I think this would benefit the wide men and get Bernard on the ball in more dangerous areas and give him the freedom too.

Singing the Blues

1.) 30 Dec 2018 21:59:42
* Lookman on right.


2.) 30 Dec 2018 22:07:26
Fair bit of creativity on that left there yea. Just leave Coleman with the whole right side to maraud you thinking? ;)


3.) 31 Dec 2018 09:28:39
could work mate would be very creative and would play to richarlisons strengths i suppose.


4.) 31 Dec 2018 14:25:20
Except Bernard won't score enough goals and Lookman can't defend. I'd like to see if either Bernard or Richarlison could play right side well enough while someone teaches Lookman how to defend.


5.) 31 Dec 2018 15:19:25
Singin the Blues, what we need is a RW and RB or Kenny as RB with Coleman reverting to backup. Putting Lookman at RW is just putting square pegs in round holes. In short what we need is two quality players for every position. Last window we addressed the CB, LB and LW positions, this window, although highly unlikely and improbable, seeing as how we A, have already spent a huge amount, B. Anyone of quality is, going to cost a fortune, January is notorious for that. C. We have to face the fact, that unless there is a hidden bargain out there (and there are 19 other Prem Clubs also looking) we just have to go with what we have. We are not going to improve upon last season, not unless we have a storming second half to 2018/ 19. Summer window will be the one where RW, RB, Striker and perhaps GK is addressed.


6.) 31 Dec 2018 15:48:19
Ktf what position do you see Lookman then?
If we play a false 9 the two wingers would be more advanced pushing the opposition fullbacks back, therefore not a need to have the responsibility of defending.
Bernard being in a roaming role would score more goals and be more of a threat as being out on the left hi seems isolated and wanting to check back onto his right foot.
I do agree maybe Kenny should be given his opportunity now. Still not ruling out Coleman yet.

If we got a result in the derby, would the results/ performance been better v Newcastle and Watford?
I think it would, it was a mental blow and we need to learn from it and have a confidence to keep playing the way we know we can.

We are going to have games like last night and feel frustrated. It shows how far we have come. Not just the way we played last year but the actual squad. If you go through our team how many would get into a top 4 team? I would say 8 players have the quality to do so. Pickford, both fullbacks and either of the x3cb. I did have concerns with Coleman earlier on in season after injuries but have seen over the last few weeks he is back. Gomez and Gueye definitely. Sigurdson yes and would be even better if he had someone in front of him to supply.
Richarlison definitely. Lookman and Bernard have the potential to step it up, Lookman has the ability but is still learning reminds me of Sterling a few years back great up to the final pass or finish. Bernard just needs time to get used to English game and I saw enough in the derby game to convince me he will adapt too. That just leaves us with the striker that’s missing. We have good squad players behind these Kenny, Holgate and Baines. Davies, Banigime, McCarthy, Schneiderlin and Walcott. DCL is ok for a 2nd striker and may come good in a few years. If we can find a striker who not only scores 20+ goals a season but is that player who gets important goals when teams come and defend deep to frustrate us. It’s fine margins sometimes in the premiership to win games a penalty decision, a set piece but that clinical striker to get an important goal takes the pressure off. All successful teams have them. Over to you Marco and Marcel.

I think Brands is meaning if Gana leaves then a replacement would then be made. At the moment it sounds we are asking for a high figure which would allow us to get a suitable replacement (Doucoure) . Niasse will go as he doesn’t have a future at the club. Along with other surplus players if the correct offer is made we will let them go.
I don’t believe there are strikers out there at the moment available who meet our profile.

I have said before why the front 3 don’t rotate and make it difficult to pick up. It will mix it up like you say Richarlison cutting in Bernard dropping central. Lookman, Richarlison and Bernard would be threatening.

It’s time for patience I understand we all get frustrated and it doesn’t help with our neighbors having all the luck.
It’s a massive task our management team have on their hands and have only scratched the surface.
We still have 9 players on loan who are surplus to requirements and need to offload. Bolasie, Ramirez, Martina, Besic, Pennington, Tarashaj, Williams, Mirallas and Garbutt.

We have at least another 6 players to release in my opinion in Jagielka, Tosun, Schneiderlin, Niasse, Stekenlenburg and Browning
It is going to take 2/ 3 yrs before we revamp the squad what we want. Hopefully all going well we will have a team to match our new stadium.
