Can't really say much, it's all been said but one thing I will say is I get the feeling of togetherness around our club at the moment so well done RK. I'm starting to eat my words what a perfect Saturday it's been today, I wonder if we will catch the dark side before the end of season.


1.) 04 Feb 2017 19:30:59
End of season, will catch them before end of Feb.

2.) 04 Feb 2017 20:07:11
The reds are in free fall boys and we will catch them before Feb they got Spurs next we got boro we're down to 3pts.



15 Dec 2016 23:20:29
I wonder if RK is keeping the likes of barkley on the bench for a reason may be he is one of the players that he wants to keep and is looking at the rest to see who to get rid of so stopping any unwanted criticism of the player until he can play him in a better team after we have got rid of all the dead wood and made new sighning . just a thought hope it came across the way I'm thinking.


1.) 16 Dec 2016 06:00:51
Skylark: interesting thought, but I doubt RK selects his team - and omits players - just to look t at certain players. Although it doesn't always seem the case, I'm pretty sure RK selects the team he thinks will get a result.

2.) 16 Dec 2016 10:53:59
Hi Skylark I think that is probably what he is doing as well mate, he must have a good idea about who is in and who is out in the New Year, when hopefully we will get new recruits, cheers GuernseyBlue.

3.) 16 Dec 2016 11:47:54
Of course there is a reason, it's not like he chooses the time on the roll of a dice! ☺️
Barkley hasn't been good enough consistently so benching him should give him more drive to earn a place in the starting 11
Well that's my thoughts.

4.) 17 Dec 2016 09:55:37
I take it Van Dijk is to replace Jagielka because we've got a dominant center half in Williams?



10 Dec 2016 16:40:29
1. what has happen to barkley
2. what has happened to colman
3. why on earth did we buy wiliams
4. whats happened to the atmosphere at goodison
5. what is going on with our new stadium
Apart from the last one is it all RK fault.


1.) 11 Dec 2016 09:24:58
1. Got the physical attributes but not the football intelligence. Could bully others when younger so looked better than he is. When did you last see him dictate a game?
2. Was confused by RM who had him playing as an inside right. He'll come back but maybe time to give Holgate a game
3. Was a good buy. He is suffering because of the crap he's playing with. Make him captain. To have a captain who speaks would be a novelty
4. Been rubbish for years. Killed by RM because was so slow and boring. Now we are as scared as the players.
5. ?

And no. Players downed tools on RM. Doing same now. Not good enough and too many poor attitudes. They are happy with big wages and mid-table mediocrity. Being asked to work harder upsets them.

{Ed025's Note - i would love to ague with that but i cant dave..

2.) 11 Dec 2016 09:51:57
Wish I could argue with myself Ed.

{Ed025's Note - i have tried that dave and ended up in winwick hospital mate.. :)

3.) 11 Dec 2016 12:29:38
he has hit nail on ed but we need to create better atmosphere it dead mate even conference sides are louder then us.

{Ed025's Note - at home it is bretto, but to be fair there has not really been that many good things to lift the crowd, i know its a catch 22 situation but when it seems that the players dont really give a toss then how can you expect the crowd to sing their hearts out?. we need a bit of a lift mate all round and whether that comes by a good result or by bringing in new faces in january i dont really care...but we need it soon..

4.) 11 Dec 2016 15:26:14
I agree Bretto that crowd need to do more. But I also agree with Ed that the players have a responsibility. doesn't take much to get Goodison going - strong tackle, decent effort, chasing the ball down. But the current crop seem unable / unwilling to do any of them.

I remember the latter days under Smith (and even some under Moyes) were the best part of the day was walking through the cemetery. Its back there I'm afraid.

I have said before and many disagreed but i thought the summer window was a real let down. RK MUST get it right this time and bring in some energy, quality and enthusiasm.

5.) 11 Dec 2016 16:26:36
Dave 1878 couldn't agree with i anymore mate spot on.

6.) 11 Dec 2016 20:09:36
I blame most of the current problems on Martinez, he has left us with no squad, he should never been allowed a third season.
I believe that Koeman is probably a good manager but not the right one for our club with its problems.

We ended the season along with Aston Villa the worst in the prem so if we are honest we would allways fight relegation with this over aged championship standard squad.

We need a British manager who can rebuild us as the great Moyes once did.
Overseas managers in general are good at fine tuning good teams with lots of money. They do tend to fail at struggling clubs that need to be rebuilt, mr Moshiri needs to change his thinking or the championship is where we are going, sorry guys but it is grim truth we must all face,

7.) 11 Dec 2016 20:48:19
we need improve the atsmophere some how when goodison is rocking that when team at it best.

8.) 12 Dec 2016 14:50:03
Agree with Dave and all the replies until i read 'the great Moyes'
Greatness is measured by success and that is something Davey didn't bring.
Then you go onto mention relegation and how we finished the season along with Villa as the worst in the prem? Surely the 2 teams that went down with villa were worse than us.



01 Dec 2016 19:50:59
Wonder if anyone could shine some light into a rumour? I've just seen that Ronald koeman is only here 3 days a week to work with the club as he flies in from Holland? Hope this is not true.


1.) 01 Dec 2016 20:36:16
Think that's a load of carp mate don't believe everything you hear.

2.) 01 Dec 2016 20:42:00
Surely not? What would he be doing in Holland? I mean, what would be attracting him back there so much.

3.) 01 Dec 2016 22:19:30
I think it is a load of bull but I just seen it on another everton website can't be true though surely.

4.) 02 Dec 2016 11:40:43
He was interviewed a while back saying why he doesn't live in Liverpool. Edwin does but Ronald lives not far away from Liverpool I remember him saying.

5.) 02 Dec 2016 18:11:45
(Surely not? What would he be doing in Holland? I mean, what would be attracting him back there so much. NBTB) he is putting his finger in the dam? O no he's not but he is at Everton lol.

{Ed025's Note - he might be missing the wacky bacca and ladies of the night stig.. :)

6.) 02 Dec 2016 19:54:43
Ha, yea Holland has many attractions that other countries just don't have :-)



28 Oct 2016 20:51:00
I've got a funny feeling Rooney might just be coming back. I am one who doesn't want him But if RK wants to bring him back then we have to give him are backing a trust our manager knows what he is doing . But with the poll I've just seen we are split right down the middle and I just wonder what type of a reception he will get especially if it starts to go wrong and he is playing bad that's my biggest worry.


1.) 28 Oct 2016 21:13:40
I agree with that Skylark. If he plays bad there is a certain amount who will give him greif. Wouldn't want to see that happening.

2.) 29 Oct 2016 02:36:13
Rooney would be a massive improvement on gibson/ cleverly. Not saying i particularly want him back but would 100% support him if koeman brings him in.

3.) 29 Oct 2016 09:25:00
A loan deal in Jan could surely be a beneficial scenario? Allow Rooney some game time and allow Koeman time to work with him, then he can be assessed and decisions made in the summer. Just wouldn't want to be picking up all of his wages and still wouldn't see him being a starter but would possibly offer another dimension. Have to trust Koeman and see what happens.

4.) 29 Oct 2016 09:42:29
Whilst he will improve on those players, if we sign him I don't want to see him in midfield. He's a striker and should be used as one.

5.) 29 Oct 2016 10:16:06
I am not really sure Rooney coming back to Everton would be good thing or not think if it does happen then Barkley position in team would be in serious jeopardy or it might just give him the kick up ass he needs its certain if Rooney did come back he would play just behind ROM which on paper looks really good but just can't get out of my mind that it's a hell of a lot of money to shell out on a player u might get 2years out of i was in charge money for January I would go out a try and sign the lad from Lyon rachid ghezzal this lad looks a top player he has pace lots of skill and scores goals and also great free kick taker he's the playmaker we are crying out for ages plus he looks a really strong lad so should fit into premier league no problem.

6.) 29 Oct 2016 10:30:43
Whos to say he wants to come back?

7.) 29 Oct 2016 14:17:39
I'd happily take him back. I'm far from his biggest fan, but if he did come back and regained that fire and passion he's clearly lost, he'd definitely be a good acquisition and hopefully a positive influence on Ross. Would have to take a HUGE pay cut, though.

And as much stick as he's gotten over the years, you only had to go to Big Dunc's testimonial to know we'd all welcome him back with open arms, especially if he did take a pay cut to come back.

8.) 29 Oct 2016 15:22:09
Exactly Ander.

9.) 02 Nov 2016 22:26:37
It's alright him getting his fire and passion back but I don't see him getting his pace and acceleration back at his age to play in Barkley or Roms position.

Either way I'd rather have Brahimi or Strootman and longevity than a short term fix that is not guaranteed on current form.

If he does come fine but hopefully not at the expense of players that will improve our squad and more importantly the first 11 and show ambition from the club.

Just a bit of fun for a bit. I was just wondering what everyone's top 3 worst TV football pundits are and who you all think talks the most sense. there must be some pundits that don't go down too well.
So top 3 best and top 3 worst. It's only a bit of fun.


1.) 23 Jan 2017 20:41:10
Worst - Owen Hargreaves, Jamie redknapp, Steve mac Best- Glen hoddle, Danny higginbottom, graham souness

{Ed025's Note - worst - mcmanaman, owen, cottee. best - gary neville, carragher, mellor.

2.) 23 Jan 2017 21:02:12
Worst 3

Thompson, Thompson and Carragher.

3.) 23 Jan 2017 21:31:27
If you are including commentators then Townsend, Alan Smith and Phil Thompson, if not then Phil Thompson, Carragher and Thompson again.

Best three Souness, Neville and probs a minoroty of one here with Kevin Kilbane.

4.) 23 Jan 2017 21:33:52
Phil thompson, paul walsh and charlie 'big time ' nickalus.

5.) 23 Jan 2017 21:36:11
Best, gary neville, carrager and souness .

6.) 23 Jan 2017 21:44:46
Worst: Alan Smith, Owen and Savage.
Best: Carragher, Neville and Gary Birtles.

7.) 23 Jan 2017 19:51:38
Best. Ian holloway, phil neville and ruud guillet. Worst has to be mark lawenson, micheal owen and gary neville. Think only holloway speaks the truth and doesn't csre who it upsets.

8.) 23 Jan 2017 21:39:46
Bazwil you can have who you want mate . interesting choices from us lot don't ya think

9.) 23 Jan 2017 22:05:45
Alan Smith, Alan Smith and Alan Smith. His voice drives me mad and I have never heard such a red who is not a red. Then he talks a load of biased drivel whereby the "top 4" clubs never do anything wrong and anything Everton is wrong! I am sure he is a closet Liverpool fan.

10.) 23 Jan 2017 22:06:48
Worst has to be Mr Jermain "contradict myself every 2 minutes" Jenas
then Michael Owen and Phil Neville

Best, sorry to say Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Robbie Savage

11.) 23 Jan 2017 23:08:35
Over here in ireland we have eamon dunphy. He is a pundit for international matches. well worth looking at him on youtube. He came in drunk one time, slags off other journalists for having affairs with women. Some of the stuff he comes out with is priceless

12.) 24 Jan 2017 06:53:39
Michael Owen and Phil Neville are two of the most boring men I've ever heard. If their wives are not having affairs then they must have the worlds largest supply of vibrators. Phil looked like he was going to cry when Shearer said Stones was rubbish against us.

Finally Phil Thompson. Absolute tool not just in punditry.

13.) 24 Jan 2017 09:05:04
On bbc Merseyside, Jimmy case is awful. His voice is annoying and he thinks Liverpool should win 10-0 every match. Also David pleats is bad and he just doesn't shut up.

Even at an old age, Jimmy armfield is still good. I also like carragher and g Neville being honest and not afraid to slag players, even ines they have played with.

14.) 24 Jan 2017 09:18:28
Worst Thompson Hanson Walsh
Best Hoddle Holloway G Neville

15.) 24 Jan 2017 11:01:12
Worst, Owen, Lawrenson, and a 4 way tie for third between Thompson, Macmannaman, Merson and Jenas.
Best, seeing as you never said current, i would have to say the legendary Brian Moore, Carragher and Neville.

16.) 24 Jan 2017 11:53:57
Is Dunphy the one who got charged for saying something like "Ji Sung Park in number 13, which means he's a chicken chow mein"?



21 Jan 2017 18:04:18
Another great win today all played brilliant and thought our goalkeeper was superb maybe we don't need to buy one after all . i could be eating humble pie at this rate. could even finish 6th who knows 😃😃😃


1.) 21 Jan 2017 18:19:55
Loving these positive posts lately Skylark.

2.) 21 Jan 2017 23:32:32
Have to agree often we forget (well I do) that in goalkeeper terms Robles is still very young and he does have a better coach now.
I go back through the years and wondered if Southall would make it. If Joel can be half as good as him he will be very good.

3.) 22 Jan 2017 11:47:26
If we don't get a keeper we will regret it but I never expected to the two boys to do so well. Too much attempting punches and flapping we need a solid keeper. I never Gave Joel a chance But he's done very well last couple of games. We still need a keeper to progress but the board hitting expectations is very positive.



16 Jan 2017 21:18:40
Anyone think robles deserves a long stint in goal just to see if he has what it takes? he looked good on Sunday.


1.) 16 Jan 2017 21:45:32
I would think so Skylark. Gives him the rest of the season to prove himself and Blues time to scout a top keeper in the summer should he fail to convince RK.

2.) 17 Jan 2017 07:44:57
Not sure why anyone would disagree with that, it's not like we have anything to win or lose this season. Ideal time to experiment I would have thought.

3.) 17 Jan 2017 08:27:46
can't see another keeper coming in the window, but both keepers are prone to a howler every now and then, at this time it seems Joel is in the driving seat.

4.) 17 Jan 2017 10:02:00
I saw a stat yesterday that he has one of the highest save percentages in the premier league (80%) only second to De Gea (80.8%) since December 1st. I think he has definitely seized his opportunity since Steklenburg has been out.

5.) 17 Jan 2017 19:24:10
I do not agree with Ron saying Stek is our number one keeper, Robles has come in twice this season and done a decent job, this time Rom has to stick with Robles in goal and not drop him until a dip in form.

{Ed025's Note - i must say that i prefer joel to stek as well baz, but ronnie has done nothing for me to doubt his wisdom yet mate..



15 Jan 2017 15:21:41
Fantastic result not one bad performance from any player all showed commitment and fight today . thought it was a strange line up but worked perfectly well done RK and to all the team especially Davis who I thought was outstanding and possibly future captain .

I take everything back that I have said over the past few months on today's performance even the goalkeeper had a good one and RK was jumping about . perfect 😊


1.) 15 Jan 2017 15:42:45
Good to read a positive post from you Skylark :-)



19 Dec 2016 23:50:07
Started of ok but we lack quality and a winning mentally I'm afraid bragging rights go to the dark side once again great way to start the xmas festival. . same old same old.


1.) 20 Dec 2016 05:50:06
Nothing will compare to the shock of the Boxing Day home fixture in the late 70s when we were on a 20-plus unbeaten run and ManUtd came here and spanked us 6-2.

2.) 20 Dec 2016 11:22:56
I was there that day. The horror was componded by the fact that United's goals weren't well taken half chances but six great big must score sitters.

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.}
