Do any of the eds know know who it was exactly that wanted Ronald koeman in the first place which member of the board or was it a joint thing . not having a go at them I was just curious.


{Ed025's Note - he was highly sought after at the time skylark and even barca were looking at him mate, i think that may have changed recently though..

1.) 23 Oct 2017 14:00:14
Goal.com reporting koeman sacked.



14 Sep 2017 19:58:07
Sorry but I think he we I'll be gone by xmas after all those expectations we had.


1.) 14 Sep 2017 20:52:09
Who will be gone? him us or you.

2.) 14 Sep 2017 22:11:05
Folks, if it carries on like this beyond the other side of Christmas and we are say out of the League Cup I really can see us looking for a new manger. This is Drivel, pure boring, slow, Drivel. We need a jump start but I just can't see where on earth it's coming from? Can you?

{Ed025's Note - no mate..

3.) 15 Sep 2017 06:21:39
We have both Lookman and Vlasic who have pace, add to that Mirrallas yet these 3 can't get a game. The obsession with holding midfielders and number 10's out of position needs to go. A straight forward midfield 4 of Lookman, Gana, Davies, Vlasic with Sigs playing behind Mirrallas as forward or I don't believe I'm actually suggesting it Niasse up top. We have been torn apart due to the managers narrow mindness and narrow formation, we have 2 young wingers with pace, let's use them. I would even use Aaron Lennon as a fullback ahead of Baines atm too.

4.) 15 Sep 2017 08:24:15
I can't disagree with the posts above, If you look at arsenal last night losing at HT and Wenger changes from back 4 to 3, reactive tactics that worked. Atalanta are no Milan, but they had pace and a big man up front that held the ball up and ran at defenders!
Vlasic looks useful but we keep playing back 4 with 2 holding and it is NOT working, he must find the right blend and quickly! Personally I feel Sniederlein is well off the pace and possibly needs leaving out of a couple of games with a more attacking player coming in.
At this moment we are devoid of any confidence no a good frame of mind going to old Trafford this weekend!

{Ed025's Note - all eyes will be on us sunday wakka and i believe it will tell us a lot about where we are, if we get a good hiding then people will rightly be asking questions about the direction we are going in, its a very worrying time for us at the moment mate..

5.) 15 Sep 2017 14:04:52
Bluegrey87 for next manager, what's the odds.

6.) 15 Sep 2017 15:30:44
Totally agree Ed025 what is so frustrating is that a huge spend in the last window has not improved us over our normal lower key cautious purchases!

{Ed025's Note - its the low key performances rater than purchases that is my big concern wakka mate..



19 Apr 2017 20:47:10
Don't usually talk about roumers but just been told by a very good source that rooney is definitely returning. I was not in favour of him returning but he talked me into changing my mind. time will tell if any of it is true?




01 Apr 2017 21:09:54
I don't quite know how I feel after today. I was one who didn't want RK at the start of the season but throughout 2017 he has proven me wrong on many occasions. One minute I'm on a high the next it's just like the same old same old everton and for me we are not quite there and 5 or 6 players need moving on and . when we play well I will give credit and have done lately but for me the jury is still out . and I would cash in on lukaku and Ross he just doesn't do it in the big games for me sorry I know he is a blue but that's football.


1.) 02 Apr 2017 08:26:01
We are not a this high level yet so stop blaming,

2.) 02 Apr 2017 09:59:35
I think Skylark has a valid point.
If you look at Lukakus record against top sides it is rubbish. He says he wants to play in the Champions League, but at present he would struggle. As for Ross, Bless him, he seems to have some flaw as I see many midfield players play week in week out as good or better than him.
He really got to show his class and stamp his authority in the big games.

3.) 02 Apr 2017 10:48:08
I agree that we flicker between 'this is brilliant' and 'same old Everton', but I don't think any drastic changes need to be made to solve that. Yesterday, we were typically unlucky and Liverpool were typically very lucky that we lost a couple of key players, so I'm trying not to read too much in to the performance.

And yes, Rom doesn't always cut it against the big teams, but you know what, if he REALLY does cut it in the other 30+ games of the season, I'll let him off.

And on Ross, it's just typical that he'll be absolutely brilliant for 10 games and have one off one and everyone jumps on his back.



05 Mar 2017 19:00:35
Think we saw today that we are just not quite there yet some players not good enough and think RK made a mistake playing Barry from the start but 3 or 4 players in next season and we could be winning these games but it was a bad day today half of the team never turned up.


1.) 05 Mar 2017 21:50:37
We are good enough, but just not ready yet. RK did make a tactical mistake in my view but I am not paid the big bucks, he will learn and take that forward. RK already said the other day that one more summer window and he thinks we will be ready. Today he alluded to the fact the Spuds have been together as a Squad for 3 seasons - by comparison we have been together 8 months.

I wonder if Sam is off when we reach 40 points and that's why we are loosing lately he is just getting as long as he can out of it 😂😂just a bit of fun blues.


1.) 15 Jan 2018 08:48:37
You will have Ed001 calling us paranoid again with comments like that. I keep saying we are not paranoid. we are sure they are out to get us. Paranoid is only when you believe it but you are wrong. Reality is when they really ARE after you!



14 Jan 2018 15:17:11
Spot on wakka.




14 Jan 2018 09:25:26
When we win which is not verry often the manager gets the praise so when we get beat don't start blaming the players it's manager who is to blame not bothered if it's his team or not and if he needs time just like all the other managers who also need time . you can't praise the manager when we play well and win and then Blair the players when we play terrible. Stop making excuses it's down to the management full stop.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 10:34:58
I agree Skylark.

I do however feel for big Sam as he done what the fans wanted. He put out an attacking team. So no matter what he does he is wrong. Put out a defensive team its boring football or put out an attacking team which is in reality just not good enough to do that yet and we get what happened yesterday.

I wouldn't write him off yet. The next 2 games will be very telling. He has to get good results from both. There is no excuses if he doesn't.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 12:19:34
Im not sure he put out an over attacking team NBTB. He kind of made a half hearted attempt at an attacking team.
He needs to figure out what he wants to achieve.
I wouldn't mind if he sits 10 behind the ball against the top 6 and draws 3 and loses 3 as long as when we play the lesser sides he goes out to try and win.
He is getting more stick than he should, mainly because his tactics were wrong in the Bournemouth and west Brom games. If we'd have beaten them 2 and lost to man u and Tottenham he would still been regarded as the saviour.

Our next 2 games could well decide his fate in the summer.

I agree with Skylark, our team selection, tactics and training all come from him and that is where I feel the problem lies. His team selections are getting better but his subs aren't. And if he feels the team he selects won't do what he asks them to do when they are in the game, then why hasn't he rotated the subs bench and given Vlasic, Klassen and Sandro chances to come on and show the others how to carry out his instructions.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 13:47:31
And SA even admits in his interviews that they don’t seem to be able to do as instructed, I think a lot will be moved on. But agree with lots said, what we must remember is we don’t see what goes on in training and what is said between player and manager behind closed door that influence his on field desisions.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 14:28:45
Bestyrne. That is 2 managers that have said the team won't do what they are being told. Maybe these managers needed to give the likes of Klassen, Vlasic, Sandro, Davies, lookman and Baningime a game or two. These are young men who have come here to play for this great club, if they're worse than the ones being picked then at least we'll know we have a massive problem but from the flashes we have seen from Baningime, Lookman and Vlasic they at least should be on the bench.

5.) 14 Jan 2018 15:21:39
Smit safety then experiment imo for this season mate. Agree with you after that then let them loose. But I’ve said before we don’t know what goes on or is said behind closed doors with these youngsters, if Lookman being homesick is to be believed then this would not contribute to not putting him in the firing line at such a young age? It’s proven that throwing youngsters in at the wrong time can effect there progress just as much as help them progress. I wouldn’t just take such a risk just yet. You mention Klassen and Sandro, if they are getting bullied in training and not keeping pace in training, then because they want to play for our great club you would pick them? Not looking to argue, just pointing out that if they no good in training what makes you think they be better in a competitive game?



13 Jan 2018 19:23:30
Could not wait for RM to leave then I could not wait for RK to leave and now can't wait for SA to pack hos bags and follow the other two down the road . sad isn't when your club has 3 awful managers in a row . and before you all start having a go it's a website to give your opinions.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 19:28:51
We just can’t keep blaming the managers @everton Martinez, Koeman, Unsworth and Now Allerdyce and Lee. There are big underlying issues at the Club, keep saying it, Ken&Co have to go.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 19:34:37
Why blame the manager again, don’t get me wrong I want a high profile manager but we need to be real. We just got destroyed by better players. We got some good youngsters but we putting too much on them. You can see what Rooney wants to do, but he simply can not do it anymore. 2 players not fit. Loads of work still needed on playing staff. Managers fault when only one player in the whole squad is his, and he only been here a week, behave.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 19:40:53
Beginning to agree. Rooney needs dropping and Gylfi played behind striker. Lookman on left and Vlasic on right. We need pace and trickery to cause defenders problems. Rooney don't look bothered half the time and kicks out at opposition when things don't go his way. didn't realise Bolasie was playing til i saw him substituted. whole team was dire apart from Tosun. Showed really good energy and got stuck in.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 19:45:36
Couldn't wait to see the back of RM. I kind of wanted RK to have the Jan transfer window to redeem himself for the dreadful summer transfer window and put his balls on the chopping block but his arrogance and inability to accept blame cost him and I don't think many of us were too upset when he got the boot. What I am struggling with now is people think Allardyce is a saviour. We are nowhere near out of trouble and we were very lucky in those games against RS, Chelsea, Newcastle and West Brom, very lucky, all of those could have been and probably should have been defeats. Today, last 15 minutes and he brings on Schneiderlin? What's the thought process there then? I think our Board need to take a lot of the blame for their choices and throwing money at a journeyman like Allardyce. I hope I eat my words and it all comes good but how can Martina start for a league one side let alone a Prem side? Think the Manager has 2 or 3 games left before he gets wholesale turned on. We spend hard earned money on this tripe and deserve at least some fight.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 20:06:41
BeStyrne, you're the only poster om here soo far that's given spurs any credit and a bit of realism. Spurs were on top form today, simple as that.

{Ed025's Note - very true ellis..

6.) 13 Jan 2018 20:13:49
If Big Sam hadnt of come in and got you those instant points you would of been in big trouble. I can't stand him but he is the right manager to 'steady the ship' for you.



13 Jan 2018 13:32:26
Not been the game since SM came in . not a fan of his . but had to come back on here just to say Walcott would do for me can't understand the negative comments on hear for him.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 14:51:27
Good man Skylark. Nice to have you back.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 18:32:43
Seriously, took me 10 seconds to work out that Skylark's SM wasn't sado masochism then another 10 to realise that it well might.

Does barkley want to leave? or do everton no longer want him or is it a bit of both. I am not his biggest fans but some think he is one of the best young talents in the game so why would we want to get rid? When we could bring players in to improve his game.

I have to agree with degsy I understand what your trying to say EDS but the managed must have the final say like degsy said you only have to look at the sighning of the players over the years they match the manager in charge in every club.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained how the transfer system works at Everton and it is similar at otehr clubs. Feel free to ignore what I am saying.}
