Papers reporting Villa are keen on taking Lennon on loan. Really hope this is true and he Kickstarts his career again.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 20:13:17
Thought it was Birmingham that were keen. Redknapp had him st Spurs. Let the lad go and get some games - good luck to him.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 06:07:24
i wouldn't be so quick to get rid of lennon if i was koeman he is the perfect squad player, and chases the ball endlessly altho if he wants to play more games he might well go. good luck to him.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 12:27:57
He's a keeper for me. (Not a goalkeeper! ) good squad player that can definitely play RWB in a back 5.



24 Jun 2017 14:26:22
Hi Ed. Any truth in the Giroud rumour? I think him and Sandro would score a boat load.


{Ed025's Note - i like giroud but nothing on him yet mate..

1.) 25 Jun 2017 11:24:18
I think Giroud would thrive in our strike force for next season, just turned 30 so in his prime and would allow other younger players to come on around him.
And he does look good in blue for France! ☺️.

2.) 25 Jun 2017 11:37:23
Lacks pace so if we got him we would have to have someone like Sandro around him. Guy can score goals though.

3.) 25 Jun 2017 10:29:58
While I don't think he would score the goals that rom does, he's miles better as bringing others into play. I think he's hugely underrated and would definitely have him.

4.) 25 Jun 2017 12:50:38
His goals to games ratio is roughly 1 in 2 for Arsenal so he's not a million miles away from Rom.

5.) 25 Jun 2017 14:23:15
Let's be brutal for a minute though, both Rom and Giroud are finishers, Rom thrived off being the focal point of our attack, the likes of Giroud and Sandro will change the whole focus of the team others will be brought into the play and thrive on the service being given to them. Teams won't know where the threat is coming from and we won't suffer like we do when Rom sulks and can't be bothered!
So personally right now I think it would be viewed as an upgrade.



20 Jun 2017 22:38:18
Hello Ed/ s. Àside from Ramirez who are EFC looking at striker wise?
I assume Willian jose is no longer in the frame but who could be our No1 striker next season.


{Ed002's Note - Interest in Dolberg remains.}

1.) 20 Jun 2017 23:36:36
Think I'd need a new change of boxer shorts if we were to sign dolberg. Seen him a few times and think he's going to be a top player. Looks like I can hope (albeit I don't think it'll happen)

2.) 21 Jun 2017 08:31:08
The lad has potential for sure, but I'm not convinced he'd be the right man to spearhead our attack next season. We'd still need to sign a guaranteed 15-20 goal a season striker. Bacca, Lacazette, Dembele (although unproven at a high level) could be goers if the price is right.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:16:37
Dolberg for me. Looks sharp and works well with Klaasen.

4.) 21 Jun 2017 13:10:48
Completely agree tadpole. We need someone a bit more experienced and proven at this level at least in the squad.

Also think we should be having 3 strikers. Assuming 1 is Sandro, the other 2 should be 1 youth and 1 experience, offering different skillset (i. e. 1 pacey and 1 who can hold it up) .

Ideal would be Dembele and Giroud alongside Sandro!



26 Apr 2017 20:27:30
Hi Ed

There are reports we are interested in Koulibaly again. Is there any substance to the rumours?


{Ed025's Note - a couple of outlets are saying the same smit but im not sure and have heard no substantial news on him mate..

1.) 26 Apr 2017 21:28:34
Shame. He would be a statement signing.



22 Apr 2017 10:03:35
All the players below players have been linked with us in the papers:

Pickford, Hart, Keane,
Trippier, Kolasinac, Rooney,
Tielemans, Ghezzal, Siggurdson
Abraham, Hernandez, Willian jose.


1.) 22 Apr 2017 10:45:07
And I bet we don't get any.

2.) 22 Apr 2017 12:18:08
I think if we wanted them we could get siggurdson, Rooney and Hart quite easily. We are a far better opti9n than what they have at the moment.

I would really like ghezzal, siggurdson, trippier, keane and Hart. We would be a force to be reckoned with next season with those on board.

3.) 22 Apr 2017 13:29:20
I would take pretty much all of them, especially Sigurdsson and Trippier, but it's too early to get excited about anyone.

A win tomorrow would put us firmly in the top 10 and only 4 points of the top 4. That should eradicate a bit of the doom and gloom.


1.) 30 Sep 2017 18:36:49
Good shout Smit mate too much rubbish being spouted on here, let's get behind the lads, as I keep saying it will come good give it time.

2.) 30 Sep 2017 22:54:47
Wishful thinking Smit, we could be 40 points clear with one game to play and weed still get doom and gloom from some of the posters on this site.

3.) 01 Oct 2017 09:26:15
That's very true sa mate.

4.) 01 Oct 2017 10:37:39
We should ask the Eds for another tab titled "it's the end of the world as we know it banter"

{Ed025's Note - if we dont get a good result today smit i will put it on the agenda mate..



28 Sep 2017 22:18:27
Vlasic has to start against Burnley. Siggy starting to show why we bought him. Rooney can't displace siggy or Vlasic so has to be benched. DCL missed header tonight shows me that Niasse has to start up front.


1.) 29 Sep 2017 07:27:01
So you're benching DCL on one missed chance that was well saved by the keeper! Jesus.

{Ed025's Note - i would play both DCL and niasse john, drop rooney play siggy in the middle and have vlasic and lookman on the wings...but im not a boring dutchman so i doubt that will happen mate..

2.) 29 Sep 2017 08:24:23
IMHO Ed I believe no 1 target was always Siggy with Klassen as back up, Rooney came into the picture later on and RK believed he could play him as a striker, which is obviously not the case, but I'm sure he was promised game time which causes the problem.

{Ed025's Note - you may be right wakka, rooney seems to be all over the place for me and disrupting any plan we might have, he wants to do well im sure but its spoiling the team ehtic and confusing issues mate..

3.) 29 Sep 2017 14:22:51
John I would have both play if it is feasible but DCL cannot play all the games we have so I would bench him for the Burnley game. That miss wasn't so much a good save it was straight at him. I like DCL and have no doubt in time he will be great but when we are creating as few chances as we are we have to put the easy ones away and that is what Niasse is doing. So not benching him to punish him but easing him in without burning him out because it's a long season.



26 Sep 2017 19:28:14
McCarthy called up for the Ireland squad again. WTF!


1.) 26 Sep 2017 22:01:15
Must nearly be fit and now he will get injured while away with Ireland.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 18:49:38
The lad can turn around and say NO to playing. The guy was a disgrace last season in getting injured twice with them and going against his employers. He needs to get some common sense and some balls.



20 Sep 2017 22:08:57
Nice easy 4th round game away at Chelsea.




15 Sep 2017 21:20:52
Crazy talk. Koeman hasn't become a bad manager over a couple of weeks, siggurdson, Schneidelin, Rooney, klassen, Keane and Sandro haven't become bad players overnight. I believe Koeman is chopping and changing so he can understand what his ideal 11 are and what his rotation policy should be. At first I thought playing the top teams this early in the season would be a good thing as they would be settling their teams however thinking about it now i would rather be playing them once Koeman has sorted his new players but we are where we are. I trust he will get it right. Koeman is renowned for having a sticky patch every season, he had it with Southampton and finished 6th and he had it for 10 games last season and finished 7th so I am not panicking. This season is a marathon not a sprint and I am sure we may not break the top 6 or 7 but if we get our target man in January or next summer we will have bedded in some really great young players and Sandro, Klassen and Vlasic have the pedigree to become great players given time.

What I am glad we didn't do is try and buy instant success by paying big bucks for great players who are past their best and maybe had one or 2 seasons left in them.


1.) 15 Sep 2017 22:08:34
Good post Smit666. I wrote pretty much the same thing about Koeman in his 2 seasons at Southampton. Both seasons started bad and as the season progressed the team did also. Both seasons they lost a good few players and Koeman was finding his best team. Same has to be happening with the players brought in this summer.

We will get a good run going. It will happen. We just have to be patient and not want to get rid of a manager after a handful of games. Everton don't do that. That's why we are at the top when it comes to how long we are in the top flight for. Long may it continue.

2.) 15 Sep 2017 22:37:10
Agree Smit. pretty much all of that. it will turn around. got to give the manager and the squad a chance. It's the first real sticky patch RK has had. do we want the club to hire and fire like Newcastle have in the past or crystal palace now? I remember fergie almost got sacked. what a clanger that would have been. got to keep on supporting.

3.) 16 Sep 2017 07:11:25
I know what your both saying that we don't want to turn this club into Newcastle but I realy think we made a massive mistake with apointing Ronald koeman in the first place his body language from the start has never been right for me he has never looked comfortable and has had three transfer windows now and spent a lot of money and we look a shambles not to bothered about the man utd game I don't expect us to get a result but if we don't get a result against Bournemouth at home I think it will show just how bad we realy are.

4.) 16 Sep 2017 09:13:48
We improved last year Skylark and to base Koemans performance on a start this year hampered clearly by ins and outs is not fair on him.

If we've learnt anything as Everton supporters it's that patience is key to success. Palace, Newcastle and all those clubs that continue to change manager on a run of a couple of games end up being cannon fodder for clubs like us.

5.) 16 Sep 2017 09:32:05
Good posts Smit and N B T B, there are some really crazy posts on here sometimes from all the so called managers amongst us supporters leave it to R K it will all come good,

6.) 16 Sep 2017 11:08:47
I can't see him coming good, his man management is abysmal. My way or the highway hasn't worked for years, any player with an ego or lots of self belief he will zap it within 2 months. Jerry, Ross, Lukaku, Baines, Kevin, all zapped. The players have lost respect in him and I doubt he's the type of man who can win it back.

7.) 16 Sep 2017 12:06:55
Bebington if those players have lost respect for one the top managers around and one of the best players ever to grace this game then I would be shocked. His man management isn't a million miles away from a certain Alex Ferguson and we know how well he did. Lukaku had a lot of self belief and last season didn't show any sign of it being zapped.

8.) 16 Sep 2017 13:09:16
One of the top managers around based on? Player yes granted, and we will see what happens when he starts to blame his own signings. And him blasting Lukaku is why he will score 35+ this season, but for one of the top managers around.

9.) 16 Sep 2017 13:55:39
How can Koeman me considered one of the best managers around? I like the man and hope it's turned around quick, but when have you known a top manager to make 2 subs at half time every other game? What's he won of any substance as a manager? Why has he had so many clubs in such a short period of time? Maybe, just maybe, he's actually not a good manager, he hasn't proven it yet.

10.) 16 Sep 2017 15:31:19
OllBlue what has he won of any substance? League's and cups, sometimes in teams that on paper shouldn't have won them. He had Southampton punching above their weight even after shipping their best players. In the premiership he is in the top 4 or 5 managers and that is why he is highly regarded by managers and players, and is being mentioned for the arsenal and Barcelona job in the future.

11.) 16 Sep 2017 17:11:01
The dutch league is not so hard to win for Ajax, PSV or even Feyenoord, the only one of his managerial honors I'd consider a feat is the Copa del Rey with Valencia. After Unai Emery he was my next choice for manager, but the tactics and signings (although good players in my opinion) are bemusing. We've got no pace, no striker, no threat. We're so easy to play against it's embarrassing. Other teams will pick up on this and set up accordingly.

12.) 16 Sep 2017 17:16:12
By the way, on merit and considering what they've got to work with, here's some better managers than Koeman so far - Guardiola, Mourinho, Wenger, Pochetino, Klopp, Marco Silva, Pulis, Howe.

I'm not anti-Koeman at all, really like him an think he can turn it around, just saying how it is here and now which is very very bad.

13.) 16 Sep 2017 22:42:32
Pochetinho, klopp Silva and pulis and howe? Why? Give me some good reason why these managers would be considered better.

We have had a sniff of marquee over the last couple of Windows like Mata and witsel non of which were signed or even targets. Siggurdson is enough of a statement signing. I don't want to go back to reliance of a big man like we did with Lukaku. City, liverpool and Arsenal have had good success in this league without that type of player I'm sure we can.

Swansea are going back for Bony so i guess would be willing if they get that over the line. TrueBlue it makes a big difference between 5th and 7th as 7th this year might not be enough for european football and 5th would mean not having to play qualifiers. Top 4 is too much to expect from a new squad.

Can play both wings and scores about 1 in 4 but that's including when he's been played out of position and has plenty of pace.

I'm 50/ 50 as to wanting Koeman to leave. It pains me to say this as it could destroy our season but I think we should give him until after the Leicester game to see whether he can solve this problem and if not then goodbye and good riddance. Not much out there in the way of great managers at this point in the season.

Agree SA. Schneiderlin has been woeful and Davies should play that position for the next 3-4 games and try and build a midfield partnership.
Williams needs 3 - 6 games out to have a break and recover some form.
Kenny in at right back for a run until Coleman comes back and Mirallas in for Rooney until Bolasie is back.

Good post True blue. We need to give Rk some more time. If and it is a big if, he can get this group of players performing to the standard we know they can plus the added impetus of getting Coleman and Bolasie back we could still have a good season.
I read somewhere Koeman suffered the same at Southampton, having only 6 points after the same amount of games. They ended up 6th that season. I'm sure if we repeated that this season we'd all be pretty happy.
I know the performances have been dire and that is worse than the points tally but I still think our biggest issue is confidence and that can only be solved by a couple of good results.
