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.



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?

Has anyone got any info on when the first shovel will go in the ground and the work starts on the new stadium and what will happen to Goodison when we leave her?


1.) 16 Jun 2017 18:52:56
Nope but it sound like we will be in it for the 20/ 21 season after today's announcements.



21 May 2017 16:04:50
Awful and flipflops comes to mind sorry but 8 new players needed at least.




12 May 2017 21:05:37
I wonder weather jimbobchaddy had a flutter?


1.) 12 May 2017 22:33:25
I did mate only a tenner was half gutted I only had a tenner on! £85 return paying for the beers for the lads in the black horse as we speak!

Everton the gear.

2.) 13 May 2017 10:34:26
I just had a gut feeling Barkley would score well in Jimbo.

3.) 13 May 2017 11:00:00
Cheers Baz ever bump into yah I owe u a pint ha ha!

4.) 13 May 2017 13:51:35
Always happens, if we have someone in the news or having a dip in form they seem to pop up with a goal, same happened with Jags a few weeks back, written off but popped up with two winning goals, will have a virtual Jd and coke off you ha ha.



28 Apr 2017 21:14:51
Just a quick one for everyone. . Do you think we would be higher or lower in the league if Howard would have been in goal for the whole season. as I think our GK position has been our biggest problem.


1.) 28 Apr 2017 21:30:38
Imho we would most definitely be lower.

Plenty of respect for Howard and thankful for his loyal service to our club. He was played a little too long as it was never mind still having him this season.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 22:06:02
I agree with NBTB though its hard saying it as he was a great servant to the club we desperately need a formidable number 1 in goal so many names being mentioned will support whoever RK and Walsh choose though.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 05:50:53
Hard one that. Depends which Howard. I agree the last 2 seasons he detriorated. Before that though he was immense. When at the top of his game he was one of the best.

4.) 29 Apr 2017 07:54:10
Well degsypulford2, which Howard? No one can turn back time so obviously it would be the deteriorating Howard that would still be here.

Both Stek and Robles have been either terrific or very bad. Not much in between. Howard however would be consistently bad if his last 2 seasons are anything to go by.

5.) 29 Apr 2017 10:58:10
NBTB I think it's pretty obvious that Skylark was talking of Howard of the past and not present. lol My point was that which stage of his career? Which part of the past? I don't suppose the Howard of now would be able to last 90 minutes. even in goal. But he did have a period whereby he was amazing. but like most Blues, thought he was kept on too long and really went past his sell by date.

6.) 29 Apr 2017 12:00:55
Maybe degsypulford2. The way I picked it up was seeing as our goalkeeping situation is not resolved would we have been better keeping Howard.

Talking about past performances is different. In that case you can about any keeper we had.

7.) 29 Apr 2017 15:55:02
Just shows how things are open to interpratation on here. Based on Howard now, we could try Joe Royle at centre forward and Peter Reid in midfield! Graeme Sharpe was always worth a good performance too. But I guess we would struggle to play Koeman's pressing game!

8.) 29 Apr 2017 16:39:34
How could you not mention speedy Sheedy. Sweet left foot. Lovely looking at lefties. Hinchcliffe's corners were a joy to watch.



09 Apr 2017 19:15:48
Well done blues just wish we could have played like that last week and why can't Ross play like that against the big clubs?


1.) 09 Apr 2017 20:19:06
It's nice to see Barkley and Mirallas play a full game.

2.) 09 Apr 2017 22:18:32
I would have Mirallas every game. Still has pace, quality and effort. He creates so much. but needs regular starts to get confidence.

3.) 09 Apr 2017 22:56:17
Seemed to have more drive and penetration with Mirallas on that form he should be starting.

4.) 10 Apr 2017 06:47:08
Kev is the most inconsistent player in the team. Personally I love him and when he's on song there are few better wide men.

However, when he gets a run in the team he tends to stop working hard enough and gets dropped again. It's been like this ever since he joined the club.

Hopefully he's realising this but at 29 with his quality he should be one of the first on the team sheet.

5.) 10 Apr 2017 07:59:53
BJU you may be right. But I sort of remember him being better 3 seasons ago. More consistent then. Maybe I wear blue tinted glasses, but the last 2 seasons he has been in and out of the team. Left on the bench. Taken off when playing well. and like I say his ability is never in doubt. So I have been putting it down to confidence and motivation. Perhaps he had to go through the pain of not being picked and a kick up the backside by Koeman to make him realise he needs to work harder? Either way, I think he has the attributes to be a top top player and really should be banging in 7 or 8 goals a season and frightening opposition defenders all the time. let's hope that Koeman has worked the same magic on Mirallas as he did with Ross.

6.) 10 Apr 2017 16:16:00
Skylark. Remember the Everton Team of the 80's. Used to double and triple up in the tackle and against opposition danger men. Look at Liverpool, Utd, City etc! this season. In particular against Liverpool they had 3 surrounding Lucky everytime, so there's a clue why his and Barkleys like struggle against quality sides.

7.) 10 Apr 2017 18:38:33
I don't disagree with any of that Degsy.

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 think it is a load of bull but I just seen it on another everton website can't be true though surely.

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.}

I said he was coming a few days ago some people do have inside information but it was not posted for what ever reason I would have him at the drop of a hat.
