So it looks like we attempted to sign Doucore from Watford in January which would have enabled Gana to join PSG. Watford wanted too much for him though.

I'd have been happy with him as a replacement if we had lost Gana.

Silva seems to be keen on Schneiderlin, would the fans be willing to forgive him if he gets back to how he was in the first 6 months of buying him?


1.) 13 Mar 2019 22:51:32
We can't afford passengers. He would have to prove he could put a shift in when called upon and be a game changer when required.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 08:46:10
Looks like Gana could be off in the Summer, Doucore would be a good replacement.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 15:05:06
whats to forgive with schneiderlin? yes he played badly last year but didn't they all? he was a disgrace at times but if silva see's something in him then we should all be behind him to do well.

4.) 14 Mar 2019 15:10:21
I actually think Dacoure is a better player. Better passer and even though Gueye has an incredible engine on him I think dacoure has more purpose in his play. As a box to box player he can defend and attack in equal measure. I’d be well happy if we replaced Gueye with him.

5.) 16 Mar 2019 18:19:18
I like Davies in midfield. He just early gets played. I think if we sell gana the money could be used to strengthen other positions.



12 Mar 2019 13:20:30
Interesting that Brands has come out saying he won't be buying a mega bucks striker because he doesn't want to hinder the progress of Riky, DCL and Lookman.
Looks like he really is changing our transfer approach to a long term stratey of bringing youth through.

I have to say, DCL has massively improved this season. Not quite ready to lead the line every game but certainly getting better.


1.) 12 Mar 2019 17:34:14
We have a problem with to many high wages on the books and cannot do much till we sell them. Financial fair play rules etc.
I think we also need a goalkeeper first, you have to be able to defend, also we do not know who will be manager next season.
If it is Siva we will need championship players for the season after.

{Ed025's Note - i believe the names of david moyes and phillip cocu have been put forward by brands if moshiri decides on a plan B, i have to say im not happy about moyes..

2.) 12 Mar 2019 18:08:28
My understanding is that Brands was recruited because of his talent at identifying raw talent that would not cost an arm and a leg. He is hardly going to tell anyone about his targets is he?

3.) 12 Mar 2019 19:16:11
Optimistic of you Dc. your right about the wages though.

I think I remember Moshiri saying he was particularly looking for a young manager who can play attacking football. Moyes definitely doesn't fit that description. I wonder how many fans would accept Moyes coming back.

{Ed025's Note - certainly not me smit..

4.) 12 Mar 2019 20:06:29
Oh please not the Moyes debate again. He is soiled goods.

5.) 12 Mar 2019 21:46:52
I'm for giving Silva time but if the decision to sack and re hire happened in the summer, I'd go Cocu, who brands knows very well, or Fonseca. Moyes, not for me. backwards step appointing him and a big one at that. And don't give me the " he hasn't had the money to spend" because he did at man utd and got booted quickly there. Then Spain didn't work out for him did it.

6.) 13 Mar 2019 00:13:25
Marco Silva will be coaching EFC in Europe in the Fall of 2020. The negativity among our fanbase is toxic. Give the man his due chance.

7.) 13 Mar 2019 08:35:34
I’m sorry but don’t see how you can make statement like that - he has spent a lot of money and seen team slide down table. What gives you confidence in him. We concede too many - tactics not great - no history of success - sacked in every job in England.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 00:46:29
We've identified Silva for a reason and fought to get him. The players he and Brands have brought in have been among our best players this season. During the good moments, it seems we have the legitimate makings of a system. This year was always going to be a transition year and we shouldn't be so results-oriented in the short term. He should be given another summer transfer window to bring in more players who play his style of football and another season to build off the good moments and cut down on the poor ones. We can't keep switching from system to system and expect any consistency from the players or in the team's performance. Let's give the guy the team wanted a chance to do the things we brought him here to do.

9.) 16 Mar 2019 10:08:22
COYB that’s probably the best and most sensible post I have seen on here for a long time.
Yes there are faults with a young group of players and a massive transitional season.
We have shown in flashes what some of the players can achieve. Pickford will be a top keeper but is still young for a keeper and needs to mature.
Holgate will come back more experienced.
Kenny, DCL have had more games and looking more comfortable. I would like to see Davies and Lookman getting more game time and be ready for next season.
There will be a lot of the squad moving on in the summer transfer window.
I don’t think we need to sign a drastic amount of players, more the right players. A leader somewhere on the team and a more experienced proven goalscorer up front, maybe Gana to be replaced, Gomes and Zouma signed. Always said a right back, Kenny is steady but maybe Holgate could solve the problem as he is doing so well playing there for West Brom.



25 Feb 2019 16:52:44
Allardyce interested in the Leicester job. As if they haven't been through enough this season.


{Ed025's Note - love it smit..

1.) 25 Feb 2019 17:02:06
They would not be relegated under Sam that's certain.
He treated Everton the way they deserved, I am still ashamed of they attitude of my fellow supporters and Moshiri.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 17:25:11
We were never in any danger of going down and never needed Allardyce DC. It was just a bad decision that brought him here. I feel no shame whatsoever. He got what he deserved the thieving bar steward.

{Ed025's Note - im with you nick, a mercenary of the lowest order who took the job to feather his own and his pals nests, a scum bag of a man who i am ashamed to ever have been associated with our club..

3.) 25 Feb 2019 18:09:24
Agree. It is definitely a stain on our history that we can't ever remove.
Everything that our great club stands for and we employed a corrupt charlatan and a crook.

{Ed025's Note - you are being too nice to him there smit..

4.) 25 Feb 2019 19:54:43
Well he done well for England didn't he Ed.

{Ed025's Note - unbeaten penysarn, and a top musician...you should see him on the fiddle mate..

5.) 25 Feb 2019 22:26:47
He used us and we used him Everton are just as bad. We are in trouble over youth signings etc so are club is not angelic, well not under Moshiri.

6.) 26 Feb 2019 14:47:45
I don't see how we used him, or how he used us. We employed him and reviewed it after 6 months. After that time our board decided not to continue with his services. that's football.
It is more to do with him being a Walsh choice and Walsh leaving too.

To say Everton are just as bad as Allardyce is absurd.
Im not sure what axe you have to grind with the club DC but your bitterness towards Moshiri, silva and the board is evident in your posts.

7.) 26 Feb 2019 16:57:21
We have heard all this before from Dark Clouds, defending Allardyce and trying to throw some of the Blame on Everton, he got well paid for being the Manager and very well compensated when Everton sacked him.

8.) 02 Mar 2019 11:12:27
We all love Everton and many love football in general but let's be honest, fotball is full of people at all levels making money that they maybe should not, Allerdyce is no different to most in the game.
We have many players we cannot sell because they are on fat contracts and will not go for that reason. Silva came because we offered him loads of money, god knows why we did. Agents take money from the game and get crazy contracts for players.
So picking on Sam is stupid he is just part of a greedy sport that takes us suckers for granted.
When I grew up I had idols in this game, I have non know and little or no respect for anyone in the game.

{Ed002's Note - You need to realise that what you are saying only applies to a small proportion of the game, the top flight in England and a few teams from the other major European leagues - it is far from the norm. If you look at the Dutch and Belgian leagues it is not like this at all. There is a significant financial imbalance still.}

9.) 02 Mar 2019 14:43:51
The reason behind our dislike of Sam DC, is because he does get paid a lot of money for what he does, but unlike most others doesn't then go and set up a dodgy deal to get even more money. Breaking the rules made by his own employers, employers who were already paying him a large amount of money.
Whether he has been overpaid in his career or not, I don't know but he has been caught out and proven to be a cheat.
You call us stupid for so called picking on Sam. Well we are not the ones calling Silva a fraud, when all he is doing is earning a wage and trying to do his best.
You are slating a good honest guy and in the same breath championing a cheat.
You need to reassess who is being stupid here.

10.) 06 Mar 2019 20:49:13
Have to be careful what you say smit666, Alardyce has not been proven to be anything of the sort, has he been charged or fined for criminal activity. In our case, we could not in fairness to our desperation attract anyone else, so went for Alardyce ('Proven record in the Prem') and just for an end of season contract, Sam knew our desperation so held out. We gave him an 18 month contract, with full intention of paying him off at the end of the season. Personally I would have given him until the end of his contract and taken more time and due dilligence over his replacement instead of jumping for a 'proven' failure. That is business and decisions taken with far more knowledge than I can admit to.



08 Jun 2018 18:47:22
Can't help but think Barkley would have thrived with Silvas style of play.


1.) 08 Jun 2018 19:15:54
Unfortunately he was greedy and is now finding out like so many before him the grass isn't always greener.

2.) 08 Jun 2018 19:58:49
"Residing in the Where are they Now files"

3.) 08 Jun 2018 21:22:29
Yep. Shame though.

4.) 08 Jun 2018 23:02:40
He had his head turned and probably got advise off his agent (who probably made a nice percent of the deal) and he left it's sad when it's one of our own but we have to move on I'm now looking forward to seeing what MS and MB can do and the players they think can turn us around.

5.) 09 Jun 2018 07:17:05
Probably Smit but he's also another team's 'issue' to sort out.

Let's hope he gets the likes of Lookman and Holgate performing week in; week out. If he does that, we could be in for one hell of a ride (not the ride from hell we've been through this season) .

6.) 09 Jun 2018 09:27:40
Don’t miss Barkley one bit. The grass is green at Goodison. Don’t care what colour it is elsewhere.

7.) 10 Jun 2018 15:32:05
Barkley never listened to any manager why would he with Silva? and he weren't that good. He had brilliance once ever 4/ 5 games. I'm glad he went. I was saying this now 4 seasons ago "he needs to go" You're telling me in a team like Chelsea's you can't flourish. Chelsea make's Barkley stand out but for how poor he really is. 15 million sucks because it should of been 30, but honestly he's not even worth 15 so be thankful.



30 May 2018 23:14:37
Having read quite a lot about Silva over the last few weeks, I have to say I am quite excited about what he could do with the likes of Davies, DCL, Vlasic, Lookman and Holgate.

He comes across as a great man manager and seems very meticulous in his planning and training methods.
This young talent we have at Everton could really do with someone like him working with them.

Let's hope we can add a couple of quality signings aswell and ship out some of the ones who don't want to be here.


1.) 31 May 2018 11:40:10
Agree mate, but we want him now, he has a lot of work to do.

2.) 31 May 2018 14:11:02
I'm sure Brands and Silva have identified who they want and who goes and stays just hope Lookman stays next season ship out Bolasie plus Williams he definitely needs to go.

3.) 31 May 2018 23:45:47
I am sure we will see more articulate type of players coming in to the squad rather than some of the thugs and hooligans we have had. I am also sure Silva will coax out the skill and encourage confidence in the players Allardyce froze out.

Any idea when you will be putting out another Sharkopod Ed002?


{Ed002's Note - Not for a couple of weeks or so as I am particularly busy right now.}

1.) 17 May 2019 15:50:14
Thanks Ed.



30 Apr 2019 23:50:43
There are a few out there who are looking at the signing of Zouma and Gomes as spending but standing still.
I'd be happy with signing them and then getting 2 more quality loans for a striker and RW.
Brands and Silva have their heads screwed on and they will unearth some gems this summer.


1.) 01 May 2019 00:00:29
Think I'd take that as well Smit, though I hope we can finally get Onyekuru at Goodison next season see what he's all about and if he can make it in the premiership.
Definitely need a striker though.

2.) 01 May 2019 07:21:59
Good shout mate really hope we get a quality striker in.

3.) 01 May 2019 11:21:06
I'd be happy with both Gomez and Zouma signing deals and a couple of loans as long as we don't loose any of our key players.

4.) 01 May 2019 12:01:26
9th with no chance of 7th maybe equalling Alardyce but with finally (perhaps) the defence coming together I would say Zouma more the priority with a backup LB for Digne. Schneids the two latest games he has played looks like the one we signed. Gomes is a good player but others are after him and Barcelona may look for a bidding war. Concentrate on CB, LB, Striker and I believe we already have the ability in other positions.

5.) 01 May 2019 19:17:13
I think Baines can be a capable back up for Digne next season.
We'd have to pay big money for someone equal or better than Baines. Spend the money on Gomes.

No chance of equalling Allardyces debacle. We already have more points, more wins away, more wins against the top 6, more desire, more improved players, more reasons to be cheerful.
Oh, and we actually want to win games.

{Ed025's Note - im with you on all that smit mate..

6.) 01 May 2019 22:37:43
I'd love to get the two of them signed up, Smit, but it's easier said than done. I've had a sneaky feeling for months now that Spurs will turn the head of Gomes and it will be hard to prise Zouma from Chelsea if they have their ban upheld. Fingers crossed that I'm wrong on both counts.

As regards to what we need, a striker is a must despite how well DCL has been playing. Just not a natural striker for me although he has played very well of late, it's goals we need more than ever. I'd be ok if we didn't bring in another RW as I think Richarlison can do a job there and hopefully we will have Henry back next year if he can get a work permit.

7.) 02 May 2019 22:44:41
I totally agree with you smit. I hope we don't try and sign loads of players. I still want to see us clear a load out and I'd be happy with the ones you suggested.

I believe that not signing anyone in January helped the team bond. 4 at the most for me.



23 Apr 2019 12:01:11
A tough tough game at the weekend. We never seem to have much joy in London but our recent form at palace has been OK.

We really need to get a win on Saturday if we are to have any hope of that 7th spot. Palaces home form has been sketchy this season, let's hope they have their flip flops on and are ready for their hols.


1.) 23 Apr 2019 12:52:23
I reckon we can win, Palace don't have anything to play for, so fingers X.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 19:21:23
The three teams who can take 7th spot from us are Wolves, Watford, Leicester. In the final game of the season we are at Spurs. I hope by then Spurs have reached the CL Final against Barcelona and won't feel like playing too hard in case of picking up an injury. Leicester at home to Chelsea, Watford at home to WHU. Now the conumdrum. Wolves at beautiful anfield. A Wolves win and they get a possible 7th place or an gorgeous anfield win and Premier league title and we get a possible 7th place lol.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 19:52:34
We have to start the game with the same type of aggression, passion and skill we have exhibited at home over the last few weeks and a win is likely.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 20:08:17
Hey ed who put beautiful and gorgeous in my post lol.

5.) 23 Apr 2019 22:01:31
Don't write them off but Leicester have man city, Arsenal and Chelsea as their last 3 games. They are going to have to go some to pip whoever to 7th.
The Watford v wolves (this weekend) game will be pivotal and as wolves have liverpool last game either a draw or wolves win would be preferential to us.
5 or 6 points are needed for us to achieve 7th so a win (but not a loss) is needed against palace.
If wolves beat Arsenal tomorrow it gets a little bit more complicated but next Sunday should give us a better idea of what is achievable.

6.) 23 Apr 2019 22:03:40
I see an ed001 autocorrect there Nick.

ED002? Maybe. But would be a little out of character.
Ed0333 possibly.

8.) 24 Apr 2019 13:30:18

16 Apr 2019 19:17:56
Gomes 3 game retrospective ban.
So. Who should replace him?


1.) 16 Apr 2019 20:18:56
I'd like to see McCarthy get a run out if he's fit think Silva will go for Davies though.

2.) 16 Apr 2019 20:43:44
Great shout mate.

3.) 16 Apr 2019 21:16:17
I think McCarthy is done as far as Silva is concerned. Davies would be my shout too.

4.) 16 Apr 2019 21:29:11
Stupid, deliberate and nasty foul, fully deserved ban.

5.) 16 Apr 2019 21:54:48
I think homes is a great player but I think he would be a thorn in the side of we buy him I have a feeling he is trouble don't know why?

6.) 16 Apr 2019 21:55:46
And your choice would be BCT?

7.) 17 Apr 2019 06:37:06
Would that be Sherlock Homes Skylark?

8.) 17 Apr 2019 13:32:33
If Jimmy Mc is done smit mate I would have thought Marco would have let him go in Jan, only my opinion.

9.) 17 Apr 2019 15:38:37
I would put McCarthy in as well, if he is going, get him in the shop window, if he’s staying see how he does, if we do not land Gomes or Gaye leaves, could be the ideal time to see if he can slot in.

Will not happen though, will either be Davies or Schnids that comes into the team.

10.) 17 Apr 2019 15:44:30
Don't know smit666 like I said just a feeling 🤔.

11.) 17 Apr 2019 20:45:12
My choice!

12.) 17 Apr 2019 21:41:03
The post was asking for a choice. Your reply was a rant about the challenge.
Probably best to put that on your own post, that's normally how it works.
Anyway who's your choice to replace?

13.) 17 Apr 2019 22:25:23
Davies for me but I have a feeling Silva will go with Schniederlin.

14.) 18 Apr 2019 06:39:10
Doesn't matter now who he picks our season is over.

15.) 18 Apr 2019 07:13:32
Get a result against United Skylark and we are in with a shot at 7th.
The lads need to turn up on Sunday and get at United like they did against Arsenal.
It'll be tough but United are beatable.

16.) 18 Apr 2019 07:24:53
Agree no reason we can’t get a result.

17.) 18 Apr 2019 09:39:48
A rant Smit666, really! that's what you call it eh!

18.) 18 Apr 2019 13:26:27
I think most probably Schneids but how about dropping Siggy back and putting Davies in.

19.) 17 Apr 2019 23:27:23
Gotta be Davies for me.

20.) 17 Apr 2019 23:32:08
Skylark you have to have a look at how many knocks and snide challenges Gomes takes from the opposition. I personally prefer a midfielder with a bit of fire in his belly. he will be a great signing. at least we have a player who can turn a game and mix it up with the opposition when required. I mean c'mon who was the last fella who played for us with his ability and aggression?



31 Mar 2019 13:15:20
Some ghosts put to rest yesterday.
We don't normally do the following.

Perform after an international break.
Perform away from home.
Win in the capital.
Win back to back games.
Keep 4 out of 5 clean sheets.
Perform for 90 minutes instead of 45.

See Marco Silva showing some passion in the dog out.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 17:48:21
Playing well for 90 mins impressed me but must do it every week if possible.

Both Digne and Zouma got called up to the France squad last season playing for us so there should be no issue for Gomes. He just needs to be consistent and good enough for their squad.
I think he'll sign and it's just Barcelona and us playing the game.
It's totally Everton to make an easy transfer last 2 months.
