So. Massive game for Big Sam against City.
If he sticks with a winning side and gets beat he'll probably get slated for not changing it.

If he sticks and wins, everyone will say it was expected.
If he changes the team and loses everyone will be asking why he has changed it. And if he changes it and we win, it will be a miracle.
And if he brings Schneiderlin back in and loses, he might as well clear out his locker on the Monday.


1.) 20 Mar 2018 23:29:52
He could play the same 11 plus another 4 and we'd still lose to City!

2.) 20 Mar 2018 23:43:37
Have a great record against City at Goodison, something about City seems to bring out a performance from Everton at the old Lady.

3.) 21 Mar 2018 16:43:18
So this team struggle to beat 10 man Stoke but will beat a City because of our history. Said it before this team is poor, and the only reason we are in the top half is because there are so many awful teams in the league.

4.) 23 Mar 2018 15:36:14
No one said Everton are going to beat City, it normally brings out the best in Everton, all that has been said it not to write Everton off for this fixture.



24 Jan 2018 10:05:51
Hi Ed, do you know anything about the reported DOF from PSV being linked with us?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Everton to PSV for Brands but another English side did obtain permission to talk with him in late November.}

1.) 24 Jan 2018 10:56:15
cheers ed.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 22:16:50
I was reading about supposed interest in Marcel Brands and also the same article mentions again about our interest in Lozano. Could be interesting if anything develops.



23 Jan 2018 23:07:42
Well guys. What's everyone's thoughts on our next 2 games?

For me, big Sam has to play an attacking side at Leicester. We never get anything at the Emirates so the Leicester game is now a must win. There is no point going for the draw, let's face it were not going to catch them for 7th unless we beat them and get on a run.

The arsenal game on the other hand should be a chance to give the fringe players a game. We never get anything there and teams have shown us that if we can go there and rough them up, we could get something. I believe that is our only chance of getting anything there.
Give the likes of Baningime, Vlasic and Sandro a game. We have nothing to lose.


1.) 23 Jan 2018 23:48:09
We have goal difference to lose. That could be the difference between staying up or not. We'll struggle. to get even a point from our next five games IMO.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 04:26:16
2 things spring to mind. Firstly we got no chance of finishing 7th. On current form I would be happy to finish anywhere outside bottom 3, regroup and start again next season. Secondly, we have got 3 games in the whole of February. Why on earth would we effectively throw the game at the Emirates? Hardly as though the players will need a rest is it.

3.) 24 Jan 2018 12:43:10
Whilst I would prefer a more attacking policy we must be careful of Leicester catching us on the counter with their pace, they have beaten better sides than us using this tactic.

4.) 24 Jan 2018 16:57:08
What absolute nonsense all around. No chance of making 7th? because 6 points is such a huge gap.
Effectively throw the match against Arsenal because we never get anything there? Well we never will if we don't try.
And still people saying we will be lucky to avoid relegation. Yes its mathematically possible we will be relegated but who on here really believes we will not pick up at least 12 points between now and the end of the season. - how about a wager, anyone who thinks we will get relegated vs me. £100 each to the charity of the winning eds football match. If we get relegated i will honour it and stump up. If we don't you each donate £100. I'm sure it can be arranged to attach the usernames to the donations to see if anybody bottles it. Put your money where your mouth is guys if you really believe we are that bad, or is it another case of you just want to criticise us because you enjoy doing so regardless.

5.) 24 Jan 2018 18:35:54
I'd never bet on Everton to get relegated, just goes against the grain, however I'm not as confident as you are that we'll get twelve points from the remaining games. We've won ONE in the last eight, and I don't criticise because I enjoy it. I hate having to do it.

6.) 24 Jan 2018 18:57:33
By the way. We may be six points off seventh but we're also six points off a relegation spot.

7.) 24 Jan 2018 19:39:42
I'm not going to comment too much on your comment Worcester because you haven't really read any of the post correctly and just seem to have answered some other random question .
Throw the game?
Read the post again and then feel free to comment on it.



15 Jan 2018 12:01:47
Tim Cahill on the verge of signing for Millwall again.
Good luck Tim #legend.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 12:32:30
True legend. Speak to any lfc about their memories of him and that says it all :)



14 Dec 2017 21:23:26
Hello Ed02 any chance of a sharkopod?
Pretty please.


{Ed002's Note - I will get it done soon Arsenal and Spurs first. }

Big Sam very happy with the away point and his job is done as he says. He has kept is from relegation and that is all he is interested in.
Please please please, get this charlatan out of our club. The ambition this man has is filtering down through the players.
Swansea like most other teams we have beaten this season, should have won. Why on earth he takes of an attacking player and puts a defensive one on, when were drawing and have nothing to fear.
This can simply not continue.




04 Apr 2018 20:22:31
Just watching the reds v citeh game. reds 3-0 up already. Really looking forward to the game Saturday now. 😣.


1.) 04 Apr 2018 20:38:48
Me too Smithy, if I was SA I'd contact our away team coach company and ask them to park the coach in front of our goal on Saturday., probably the best tactics he could muster😂😂😂.

2.) 04 Apr 2018 21:07:16
Did you see the treatment of the away coach outside their ground?

3.) 04 Apr 2018 23:02:11
What did Sam say again, unstoppable City, just shows when you press a team and have a go you sometimes reap the rewards, I hate our neighbours but top marks for showing in the first half, not allowing a team space or time settling with the ball.

4.) 05 Apr 2018 01:51:19
Let's hope Klopp rests a few on Saturday. Ours have already had their rest last Saturday.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m sure you’ll get your wish bw mate.

5.) 05 Apr 2018 09:34:58
If Sam is thinking about parking the bus on Saturday I would only do it at the street end. If you do it at the Park end it would be within a stone's throw of the away fans :-)

6.) 05 Apr 2018 08:34:17
they could play their u12s team and with Sam in charge we will still lose.



10 Mar 2018 17:47:23
Great result today, looking at other results I would think we are safe now.
Strange bench from big Sam, Klassen and Baningime on there, not complaining, about time.
Schneiderlin not even on the bench. Wahoo. Finally the penny drops Sam.

This looks more like a 'i want to keep my job' squad, rather than a 'I'm here to save you squad.


1.) 10 Mar 2018 18:36:20
hes saved it mate.

2.) 10 Mar 2018 19:33:06
Spot on Smit666. Looks like he was between the lines telling the truth (some of his comments) about making sure we were safe first. That Team today did okay but and it is a big but how would they cope against a pressing side. Brighton did today what we have been doing all season and that is inviting sides onto us. Despite some of the Boo boys I actually thought Bolasie did his job. With two wide men running at a defence it makes it much easier for the likes of Sigurdson as a No 10. Actually thought that Rooney did well in the deep role as well (not the pen though, he should not be allowed to pull rank again, that should have been Bainsie's) .

3.) 10 Mar 2018 22:28:37
We’ll find out how they do against a pressing team when City come to visit. Can’t wait.



07 Mar 2018 00:03:38
A question for everyone but i would like the Eds view aswell.
With us having a DOF would it not work better with a head coach, rather than a manager? Someone who works closely with the players and what they need to do on the pitch.

I hear a lot from Allardyce about the players being able to speak to statisticians, or coaches and not too much about his advice to them personally. It sounds from the outside that He instructs his team and they carry out the training for the players. He brought a big team with him and that's ok if that's how he works but, is it not a case of too many chefs spoil the broth?
Especially with a DOF to contend with.


{Ed001's Note - I think so yes. DoF always works best with a head coach because they are otherwise doing almost the same job as a manager. If you look at what the old school managers did, mostly, they were DoFs in all but name. The likes of Ferguson, Redknapp, Paisley, Kendall, they were not often taking training as they had so much other stuff to do. They would oversee it and the other coaches would report back to them, but they very rarely took training. That was the key to Ferguson's longevity, as his assistant would be replaced every few years and so brought fresh ideas to training and tactics.}

1.) 07 Mar 2018 07:03:18
Thanks Ed.
Interesting what you say about Fergie as most managers like to keep the same team and take them wherever they go.

{Ed001's Note - yep and that is why they go stale so often.}

2.) 07 Mar 2018 07:42:13
That is very insightful Ed and makes real sense for me.

{Ed001's Note - cheers.}

3.) 07 Mar 2018 22:06:23
question ed, how do you think mourinho has managed such longevity? i think he's kept rui faria and co since his time at porto.

{Ed001's Note - he has done it the same way Pep has avoided going stale, he doesn't stay in one place for long enough.}

4.) 07 Mar 2018 23:50:35
do you think the lack of freshness was the reason for rjikkards decline in barcelona as well? just curious about your thoughts.

{Ed001's Note - there was a lot more to it with Rijkaard. He was a bit weak with the players and Ronaldinho was getting away with doing bugger all training as he was off partying all the time. That led other players to stop putting in the effort as well.}



04 Mar 2018 13:58:41
On a brighter note, we have Brighton next week and they're currently thumping Arsenal 2-0.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 14:33:36
With a big centre forward strangely enough. That blows my theory out of the water 🤔.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 16:01:59
WB, a big center forward is always an asset, but Shankley always said he preferred middleweights, then he bought Tony Hatley from Chelsea ( he couldn't trap a bag of wet cement) but he scored 26 in his first season second season he was crap used to watch both teams then with my mates, just depends on service, Pickering, Latchford Royal, Lukacu, even Jimmy Gabrial did ok when moved up front.

3.) 04 Mar 2018 16:41:37
Not just a big centre forward but two out and out widemen. Pace, width, a big man and fitness leading to non stop hard work. Don't give a monkeys about all this modern thinking, it is the basics that work everytime. We are now down to 11th not as some would have you believe any where near safe. The cynic in me would say, it looks like Big Sam found it to easy at first so thinks whooops need to slow it down so it looks like a I am earning my bonus. That is one theory the other is that contrary to what thousands of supporters can see, he believes the players selected week in week out are better than those he has written off without giving them a chance. Think I need a drink (becoming a habit) .

4.) 04 Mar 2018 21:33:34
Brett Angel was a big lump up front and so were Apostolos Velios and Denis Straquilarsi, but they didn’t solve much.

No more shorkopods. This cannot happen. Can we have a survey?

We have a few players already who have 1 good game in 5. So if they can all have their 1 good game at the same time, we are going to batter someone 18-0.
I would hope Sam is planning for the summer, he is our manager. Managers get sacked at differing times of the season/ preseason bit they still carry on as normal until something changes. That's all they can do.
Him planning is no guarantee, either way whether he will or won't be managed next season.

Can't see Utd selling him so maybe a loan. Would he go to another of the big boys to struggle for game time with them?
Getting him on loan would solve both those issues.

He's a free agent in the summer so can discuss a pre contract with Everton.

Allardyce is in London to discuss how much transfer money he has to spend. Moshiri is there to suggest which club it will be with.

The players would stop playing and the away fans would have a field day. Far from a good send off he would be embarrassed.

League position should have nothing to do with it. The points total is more important and we are currently on 45 versus 61 last season.
If we win all our remaining games we will have 54, not a bad return for Sam but we have to win our last 3 yet.
Then you have to take into consideration, have the performances improved over big Sams tenure, we can't expect him to work miracles but the performances for me, are the same, if not worse.
Benitez last week played Slimani because he knew they were safe and said he wanted to know if he was worth keeping.
why Sam hasn't started doing that with Vlasic, Klassen and Baningime is beyond me. Is he going to watch them in pre season and get a better idea of what they can do than he will in these last few games? doubtful.
it smacks of a man who knows his neck is on the line and jsut wants to grab enough points to stay in a job.

Allardyce will only have 12 months left on his contract and that will no doubt cause issues with players downing tool next season if all doesn't start well. I can't see Moshiri letting that happen. He will either get an extension or the bullet.

I have seen everyone of these players play great attacking football over the past few years. I haven't seen any of Sam's teams play great attacking football for over 12 years.
That in itself paints a picture.
