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.

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. }

1.) 15 Dec 2017 07:05:12
Thanks Ed.



15 Nov 2017 15:55:00
There has been a lot of comments on this forum about EFC dithering with their decision. Well today that dithering has paid dividends as Big Sam has come out and said that is why he has dropped out of the running. Well do EFC, dither away.


1.) 15 Nov 2017 17:03:38
If he never spoke to us [his words] how was he ever in the running?

2.) 15 Nov 2017 18:19:33
Very good point Bullens.

3.) 15 Nov 2017 19:31:47
Good post Smit mate so glad we didn't get him.

4.) 15 Nov 2017 20:26:53
The same joker that did a great job with palace then jacked at the end of th season because he didn't want to manage a club side day to day for the long term? He'd do a job for us but we're not desperate enough yet and even if we did I wouldn't want him given a contract beyond May 2018.

Aren't we getting a bit ahead of ourselves?
We are assuming 7th will get a European place, which it might not and we are assuming we can finish 7th which we might not.

If we get 7th or 8th then Moshiri has a decision to make in the summer.
Any lower than that and it is fair to say the performances will have stayed pretty much the same as the last 7 of 8 and with that, Moshiris decision wouldn't be as difficult.


1.) 13 Feb 2018 20:17:59
I like that post mate, but I reckon Mr Moshiri will leave things as they are for now and keep Big Sam for the duration of his 18 mth contract irrespective of where we finish this season, contary to what a lot of posters say on here Big Sam has steadied the ship, others will argue that is not enough but for me he has done what he was brought in for, which ever way it goes it will be an interesting summer ahead of that I have no doubt, in Mr Moshiri we trust.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 21:46:14
Personally I think Moshiri is wiser than that. I don't think he is going to waste any more money and that's what he would be doing giving any to Sam if he's there for just 12 months. By that I mean they would be Sams players and a new guy would want his. Especially if the new guy wants to play football on the deck (not a dig at Sam he just has a different way of playing) .

He also doesn't look like he wants to let up in spending money and waiting 12 months either. He looks in a hurry to move this club forward.

I think finally he wants someone who is well known and on a level with the Klopps and Jose as he has stated himself. As much as we know Sam in England, in Europe he's a nobody.

So it all depends. If Moshiri wants to put his ambitions on hold for 12 months then Sam will stay. If he wants to continue raising the profile of the club he will get a continental type manager in.

Let's see what the summer brings.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 22:05:07
Sam Allardyce has many contacts and many friends in football at home and (maybe it would surprise you but not me) also many friends and influential contacts abroad. The bloke knows his stuff but has a style of football and reputation (some of it, not all, unwarranted and media hype) that some (including myself) do not always like. I support him at the moment because he is what we needed and still do.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 23:05:02
I'm sure he has many contacts DRS. However, you've answered my question. His reputation is what people do not like.

I am not talking about the agents or whoever in football. I am talking about who players will come and play for. They want to play for successful managers. Whether that be playing wise if young or manager wise through winning trophies.

We won't have a world cup to be playing for to get the Walcotts in the summer. Sam is not a big name at all abroad DFS. He's not known by fans and most teams or players and if he is it's as you say because of his character and reputation.

5.) 14 Feb 2018 10:12:07
its really mixed bag and can see both sides of the argument.
on one side you can see maybe he wants to just make us stable again with big sam left in charge to see what he can get out of the team in a full season and build on year after after we finally have a solid looking line up and squad
the second is maybe the signings he makes will cost a lot and the next man to come in inevitably in 12 months time won't want them

tough call really is all about wether the right man buys into it aswel, the next manager must be someone who wants this desperately and sees this as a project he can get his teeth sunk into (like klopp at lfc and mourinho when he first got to Chelsea) tell the man that he's the guy and let him run with it.



12 Feb 2018 19:06:18
We'll it's great to see the optimism has spread further than the weekend. NOT!
It wasn't this bad when we were losing lol.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 19:36:35
Lol it's because I'm back mate.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 20:22:57
Ha. You taking the credit for it mate.



12 Feb 2018 15:21:07
Big Sam has said he will play Tosun when we are safe, and Tosun is struggling at the moment because of the cold weather.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 15:35:59
Has he not heard of thermals? You have to laugh at these foreign players.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 15:37:24
He said a bit more than that.

5.) 12 Feb 2018 18:02:14
He wants to try watching it from the terraces.

6.) 12 Feb 2018 19:02:48
Surely his agent or someone at Everton must have discussed the weather with him before he came. i don't remember Aguero or Tevez struggling to train because of the weather though, this is going to turn into a wprse teamsfer mistake than Niasse, at least Oumar had the heart to work hard.

7.) 12 Feb 2018 19:21:09
There's a South American team called Everton, maybe he thought he was going there.



08 Feb 2018 21:12:29
Got to love Allardyces pre match press conference. He praises Hodgson for palaces upturn in performances and in the same breath, points out that it's the same players he had playing for him. It's all about big Sam.


1.) 08 Feb 2018 22:02:47
yep Smit666 I got onto that as well ha ha not sure why you got a thumbs down though it seems the fraud still has his fans.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 10:38:39
Bigging himself up over a team languishing at the bottom, haha, yes that's great PR that Sam, how about you concentrate on getting the players you are paid handsomely to manage actually playing in a system that best utilises them.
Instead of watching Bisto adverts, try watching the players you have at your disposal and use them.

In case you don't get it that means play a number 10 as a number 10, play a LB in the LB position and play with 2 up top at home against so called lesser teams, too much to ask? Ok just play the same rubbish tactics and out of position players and see what happens.



05 Feb 2018 20:49:08
Does anyone else think it's quite ironic that, after buying so many no 10s in the summer, if Siggy gets injured we don't really have a replacement no10 as such.


{Ed025's Note - we can put 2 of our number 5,s together smit..

1.) 05 Feb 2018 21:01:03
Is that not what we did against arsenal ;)

2.) 05 Feb 2018 21:35:02
I find it staggering that Klaassen is completely overlooked. Just watched Lookman score for Leipzig, he will be a star for some team, unfortunately not for us.

3.) 06 Feb 2018 08:01:31
It comes down to how coaches (Manager) make decisions and evaluate players performance. The most baffling I have heard so far is Alardyce comments on Tosun 'He is struggling to adapt to the Premiership', how many times have we seen him? I advocated Sam's appointment (in all honesty, who else wanted us in turn) but some of his comments and decisions have bordered on the inexplicable.

Sam had most fans support from the start but it looks as though the last 7 or 8 games has eroded that support. There are still enough games left for him to win over the fans again,
But as is usually the case in football, it will be the fans who ultimately decide whether he stays on in the summer or not.

Agree Blue heart. It seems Sam is trying to get rid of the Koeman signings. If indeed the rumours are true. And that is a big If.

I understand what you are saying blue, but who could have foreseen us being 3-0 against palace?
We have to have a defensive sub on the bench and Sam sees something we don't in Schneiderlin, there is an argument about why he doesn't get on the bench, but there you go. Also if Davies is dropped and schneids comes in after the performance in the last game, even Sam must know that it wouldn't be the correct tactic, unless Davies is injured.

Davies Rooney and Gana for me. With Baningime and Klassen as back ups. Possibly schneids if he can sort his issues out.

Degsy, he is not an out and out defensive mid, he has always been a box to box midfielder, he has never been disciplined enough to be a defensive mid.

It would just fallin with the recruitment mentality this season, ooh he used to be good so let's buy him, where does he play? Err. I don't know but, he'll fit in somewhere.
If he wanted to sit on the bench and come on as sub surely he would be better staying at united than coming to us. He would just be another waste of money.

16 Feb 2018 21:41:55
Like you say Degsy put him on with 10 minutes to go. Sub at best. He's not a defensive mid so why would he take Gana or schneids place? Or are you thinking of not playing a defensive mid? He plays further forward so would take siggy or Davies place which he might have done 5 years ago but not now.


{Ed025's Note - maybe instead of building a new ground we should build a home for over the hill players, we could ask all the teams who have players who are past their sell by date to sign for us, we could get john o,shey and wes brown as our captain and vice captain and fellaini as our player manager, leave all them pesky kids in the U23 squad and go with experience...just a thought..

I can see where the others would play but I don't see where Sandro would fit in the team, unless we adopt a new system.
