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..

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.



04 Feb 2017 18:47:50
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.

After all the hype and so much to look forward to pre season we are in a relegation fight after all these years this club never ceases to amaze me there has got to be something going on behind the scenes that we don't know about I can't believe how bad this club is being run at the moment not just on the field but at board level as well everything from new ground to new manager it's all a shambles.


1.) 22 Oct 2017 16:32:32
It half seems like we're all being punished for something we've done in a past life get Glann Hoddle in he's knows about all that stuff.



20 Oct 2017 17:41:36
What has happened to are club I have never known such a turn around and I haven't a clue how it's going to end.




19 Oct 2017 21:49:01
Never wanted rooney back but now we have him why the hell play him all season then when we have a an important game and we need a bit of experience he is not even on the bench . our manager strikes again.


1.) 19 Oct 2017 21:57:36
Sandro sigs Klassen lookman have been ruined by Ronal. Martinez and Williams must be related to him or his love kids.



11 Oct 2017 19:25:22
How come not much has been said about SW in all of this mess we are in koeman is getting a right slating and SW seems to be getting away with murder.


{Ed025's Note - they are both to blame skylark..

1.) 11 Oct 2017 21:59:57
I posted some time ago skylark and said that SW AND the board are all responsible to a certain extent. they all enabled this situation. procrastinating over a midfielder without replacing the TWO strikers we let go. and now RK is allowed to play numerous players out of position, whilst we are bursting at seems with talent in u23s. that would give us pace and width? absolutely bizarre! I thought that we would push on. Whilst I appreciate it takes time to integrate a squad, I think the tactics and squad selection has been a monstrous f@ck up, and may have set the squad back by years. All the credibility that he had built has disintegrated for me. In previous seasons I expected far less due to financial standing and squad limitations. but I expected more this year and as such this is as disappointed as I've been in a long time.

2.) 12 Oct 2017 05:09:23
Usually I'm sceptical of fans going on about team selection (although I do it myself all the time) . However when every single fan is saying the same thing, every single pundit is saying the same thing, every single journalist is saying the same thing, the manager is obviously getting it wrong. Also take into account that we are playing woefully, and for me Koeman is the number one culprit. I'm not even sure that a top striker could drag us out of this slump tbh.

3.) 12 Oct 2017 06:06:45
BT I think it right. If all RK was to do was replace Dom or Niasse with a target man, the style of play (based upon the same team selection, consisting of Schneiderlin, Gana, Rooney and sigurdson across midfield, Ashley Williams and Martina in defence) would still be wrong.

4.) 12 Oct 2017 11:15:51
Which same team selection?

5.) 12 Oct 2017 11:35:14
I'm with Blue Tommy on this. I wanted Koeman but he is the one to blame. SW as far as I know is only involved with scouting and signing players.

Koeman picks the team, tactics, style of play etc. He has the most responsibility and makes the final decisions. If he doesn't like a player that SW scouts or suggests I'm pretty sure Koeman can insist on not signing him.

So I can't see how SW can be blamed for much. Not his fault Koeman keeps picking players out of position and putting 3 number 10's in one team.

6.) 12 Oct 2017 17:10:27
SW is involved in identifying players who can improve all our squads, and board buy players. Given the abundance of midfield players, lack of strikers/ no9 (lukaku goals) , SW and board has an obligation to ask what he intended to use new players for. maybe they all expected more from Rooney and Sandro. but that doesn't explain why sigurdson is now a left winger. I can't get my head around that one! And why we bought klaasen aswell?

7.) 12 Oct 2017 21:40:36
I refuse to believe that Koeman is ignoring or not seeking input from Unsworth and Ferguson. Reports are that even Garbutt is now doing well under Unsworth's guidance. My Brother a life long fanatical/ superstitious (house decor/ clothes/ car) everything blue supporter, says he believes that even a draw will not be good enough to save Koeman's job on Sunday. We shall see.



03 Oct 2017 19:22:34
It's a hard question isn't it Who should be are next manager? : when I said I never wanted Ronald koeman in the first place all I got from most on here was who do you want instead and stop being so negative . well now the question is being asked again but this time it's me asking who you would like to take over? Not easy is it . but now it seams a lot want him out as well like I said months and months ago but not heard one decent name put forward yet.


{Ed025's Note - dyche?

1.) 03 Oct 2017 19:38:43
Everton have only had success in my lifetime and I first went early sixties, with managers who had playing careers with us.

2.) 03 Oct 2017 19:45:58
Congratulations Skylark. Made up you're right. Good on you for wanting our manager to fail. How dare others look to back the board, players and manager. We should all jamg our heads in shame.

Bad SUPPORTERS! Strange word that to some.

3.) 03 Oct 2017 19:46:49
Yes he would do nicely at the moment.

4.) 03 Oct 2017 19:51:38
Eddie Howe anyone i would even take rafa benitez.

5.) 03 Oct 2017 20:19:58
You need to think about a manager that has done well with limited options up front but who can build a good enough team spirit to still gets results. For me that's Howe or Dyche, but not sure how they'd handle big transfer budgets.

6.) 03 Oct 2017 20:25:17
Didn't want him to fail bluejohn I went to ever home game and gave him and the team my support so drop the congratulations I just didn't want him and looks like I was right . just asking the likes of you who you would like to see in charge which you can't answer.

7.) 03 Oct 2017 21:02:59
For the next couple of weeks, at least, there will be no change so maybe RK will manage to get things back on track. Stranger things have happened in football.

{Ed025's Note - they have potato..

8.) 03 Oct 2017 21:31:10
While he's there Koeman. I want him to succeed. I want him to win every game and the players to get on board with it. Not for him but for Everton Football Club.

I think that's the problem with us fans. A bad start and we are looking to the next one we can bring in and judge after a few games or like you already have a preconception and once things go wrong jump on it and look for applause because you all told us so.

You are like many fans at the game I suppose and I'm not judging you but you've given up. I said the other day he could win 10 on the spin but you've made your mind up he needs to go.

Moyes was too negative and played for a draw before a win, Martinez got the players passing sideways and didn't berate the players in public, Koeman berates the players in public and has no tactical sense, Kenwright treats the club like it's his toy, Moshiri is a fake and should spend 500 bagillion on Messi and Ronaldo.

I'll jump on board though with your question.

Ancelotti until we lose at Arsenal because didn't change our fortunes around against the big teams, after that Moyes because we know him but after drawing our next 9 games I want him gone then Kenwright because it must be his fault and I'll tell him by putting a plane above the ground, finally we get Davey Unsworth who's one of our own, until that is, he has been found out after losing a couple of games in his fledgling managerial career where he is learning his trade.

If any of this happens I'll make sure I come back and tell you all I said it first.

I'm not attacking you here Skylark I'm attacking all of us. We're all the same. I think we've lost the art of being Evertonian. Maybe we're now spoilt with the injection of money and our expectations are blown out of proportion. I don't know. Everton though doesn't feel like Everton any more. Most if the time on here or at the game everyone sounds angry and unhappy even when we were in full flow last season there was no difference.

So finally I give up and done. Respect you all but I need a break. ED's i love ya and I'll be back in happier times but for now take care of yourselves. Some of you on here I hope you find peace or valium. The rest it's been a pleasure and I'll see you soon maybe.

For me "bartender! Beer please! "

{Ed025's Note - sorry your taking a break john but i understand why, thanks for your contributions mate and hope to see you soon..

9.) 04 Oct 2017 00:51:51
BlueJohnUns, if you must go the fair enough. But rather you didn’t. Not because your always right or even always wrong, but because this site is about opinions and I just like reading them all. I enjoyed yours because they’re always fair.

I understand the frustration and get the need for a break. But think about your contribution and it’s value before you call it a day.

Skylarks post is not one I agree with but others will and he’s got valid points too even if they aren’t shared by all.

The Koeman debate will rage on until his team either clicks or something else happens. But we all have a part to play, some negative and probably justified whilst others positive and hopelessly optimistic. I’m the latter and even if I’m the only one left I’ll still keep on. But a bit of company wouldn’t go amiss.

10.) 04 Oct 2017 06:46:27
Bluejohn I will agree that it don't feel like everton anymore. sorry to see you go I mite not be far behind.

11.) 04 Oct 2017 09:39:08
I'd stick with RK like most clubs you go through bad patches and good patches RK has not had long enough to sort out the team yet. Last season we had a bad run 5 points in 7 games November to December yet he still took us to a very comfortable 7th. Unfortunately the 7 points from 7 games has come at the beginning of the season, if by Xmas he hasn't been able to turn the team round then you could argue that he has to go but after 7 games its just ridiculous considering the teams we have played so far. Do we really want to turn into a Crystal Palace, Southampton or Watford changing managers every time we hist a blip?

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.
