The cherry (s) on top of the cream on top of the cake:

Luke Shaw (difficult one as he needs game time and this would push Baines out - but 6 million - great price)

Dzeko / Benteke / Girioud - personally I'd rather Dembele - but its a 45 million gamble but we have Rooney / ramirez. Dzeko and Giroud would only be around for 2 seasons.

Sigurtson - love it if we got him in exchange for Barkley. I think given its World Cup year Barkley has to be playing / I think we will get sigurtson and Swansea need to replace him. Good deal all round (he won't play at spurs and will always be under Ali's shadow.

I'd be happy with left back, sigurtson and benteke/ dembele.

Be dreaming if we got gray on top of that.

wont get Luke Shaw for 6 million in todays market, maybe 15, Giroud all day long, 98 goals in five seasons and not a regular starter, doesn't rely on pace so age is irrelevant as you would get 4 years not 2, Ross wouldn't go to swansea if that's what you were on about mate, i'm not arsed if we pay 50 million for Sig as would improve us hugely.

Lakaku reported to be in talks with Man Utd since 9pm today.

I would rather he went to Chelsea as I think Man U are one of the teams we could overtake -.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 22:50:21
him and pogba are very good friends tho, on hols together, maybe he wants to prove mourinho wrong as well

personally i don't give a toss where he goes, we are emerging as a very strong team / squad.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 23:02:51
Bang on Dixie.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 23:15:33
90th minute next season lukaku misses a sitter we hit them on the break sandro puts rooney 1 on 1 an the mighty blues take all 3 points 😂😅😂.

4.) 06 Jul 2017 06:17:23
there is a guy who walks his dog in the local park where i walk mine (sefton park) he works for efc altho i don't recognise him or his initials he told me in feb that lukaku was going to move to manu only probs is rom himself he wants chelsea so now all the talk is rom is going to manu and they are going to add wayne to the deal as long as we are prepared to pay his 250 aweek wages if you say it out loud it doesn't make sense first off we would not pay that much for rooney secondly why would we swap or deal only to get the short end of the stick i have no doubt that manu want rom they might even get him but the rest is just crap i don't see him getting more than 100-120 a week at efc and that's a stretch is kind of odd that it is the sun that broke this crap i mean story yesterday can't imagine where they are getting there headline grabbing storys from this is rumour mongering at its worst their is no way any newspapers actually no what's going on during any negotiations and if rooney is going to be an efc player its because its what wayne wants not because of rom or how much efc will pay him.

Lukaku wants Champions League football. Well as I see it, seven teams will be vying for the four spots next season and none of them are a shoe in. I include Everton in the seven. If he doesn't want to be part of the revelotion then more fool him. If he wants guaranteed Champions League football, sign for Celtic. Let's get as much as we can for him and Barkley and enjoy what's coming. COYB. IKWT.

{Ed002's Note - He wants to play at the highest level and be challenging for league titles and playing in the Champions League regularly.Everton cannot offer that.}

6.) 06 Jul 2017 08:49:49
I'm not going to lie, I'll be gutted when he goes - regardless of where it is! You can't knock a player for having ambition and being driven toward success. Unfortunately, I feel that we just aren't where we need to be just yet to keep a player like him. I've no doubt that in a couple of seasons that we will, just not right at this moment - c'est la vie!

Good luck to the lad anyway, and we will move onwards and upwards 😊.

{Ed025's Note - i dont have a problem with him leaving either pierre, i wish he would keep his mouth shut at times but i have no axe to grind with him...good luck rom but i think you may have left a bit too soon as you could have been a part of something big..

7.) 06 Jul 2017 09:07:55
Celtic will guarantee him titles Ed and also Champions League, if he is as good as he thinks he is then he could do it even at a club that is not the elitist when it comes to challenging for the Champions League title.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know how celtic come in to it gray?.. :)

8.) 06 Jul 2017 09:17:50
I get what you're saying Ed regarding him keeping his mouth shut mate, some of the stuff he says is just in jest though to be fair.

{Ed025's Note - it always seems that when he,s away with the belgian squad he has a little pop at the club pierre, no biggie though just a tad disrespectful..

9.) 06 Jul 2017 08:54:23
ED02 is their any reason we can't offer champions league in the near future as top 4 is the aim next season as for him going to UTD I still think he will end up at Chelsea Mourinho didn't rate him and sold him while at Chelsea so with him wanting Morata why would he also want Lukaku.

{Ed002's Note - Right now it would be very difficult for Everton to break in to the top four and stay their on a consistant basis - even more so to challenge for the league. I have no idea why you think Mourinho didn't rate Lukaku at Chelsea - that is simply not true.}

10.) 06 Jul 2017 10:04:06
I think our aim is to consistently challenge top 4 although I know winning the league is out of our grasp just now regarding Lukaku and Mourinho my thinking was he sent him out on loan twice then he must of agreed to the sale for him to leave. in all honesty the sooner he leaves the better great goalscorer but his all round play isn't fantastic and he won't get away with as much as he did with us.

11.) 06 Jul 2017 11:25:03
no you can't knock a player for wanting cl football but how many of us would give up everything we have for a little bit more or the promise thereof utd have locked themselves into playing rom now they have they're man and will have to play around him. not good imho utd will again have to change the way they play to accommodate rom smacks of inconsistency in the coming season. how long before the nonsense that has ruled his time at goodison starts at old trafford. give him a year like he did with us and see if he still wants chelsea move glad this chapter of our history is closed roll on the next.

Good luck to Mo Besic. Really hope he gets over his injury nightmare and gets a run of games for Boro. I don't think he will be back at Everton personally but he deserves an injury free few seasons. Only advise I'd give him - don't stay at Boro - it makes Baghdad look posh!




31 Jan 2018 09:19:19
Mangala hollgate Keane mori jags Williams. You would think someone will leave. (Williams back to Swansea? ) . Going forward hollgate Keane Mangala mori Kenny Coleman and new left back should be main defenders at club

Klassen Rooney sigurtson - again someone has to go (Klassen to Napoli? )

Besic jmac gaeye sniderlin, Davies (besic will go - think jmac would have too if not injured)

I think we need a much smaller squad and add quality rather than 4-5 signings every window. We must have had the biggest turnover in players in the last 24 months out of any prem team? Apart from city - this policy is not allowing anyone to settle and is simply not working. Doesn't help we are on to our 4th manager in 5 years either mind.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 13:14:12
Williams should be put out to pasture. doubt that he'd get into the swans back line especially after recent performances. Last night they were epic. The line that the commentator came out with was showing "intent" i wish we could give half of that performance. make your own luck.



30 Jan 2018 20:41:21
I'm happy with window. I don't think we need anything else. Everyone crying out for Garbutt and now wanting another left back. I personally don't think garbutt is good enough but he has perfect opportunity to grab a place. We have Kenny hollgate and Keane all young - mori coming back too. Jags and Williams as back up.

Midfield needs a clear out but we have more than enough. Hopefully lookman gets more of a game. Gueye bollasie Davies sigurtson - plus Dowell will be one to come through I'm sure

Add Walcott, DCL, Rooney + guy from anderlecht and Tolson up front - we are sorted

Personally it's more about who goes rather than new signings - for me Martina, Robles, besic, Galloway, Browning, jmac, naisse, Klassen, Sandro, all need to go to get a more settled squad (although Klassen Sandro naisse have not been treated the best by EFC)


1.) 30 Jan 2018 20:52:01
I agree it’s pointless bringing a LB in as a knee jerk buy as we’ll just end up with yet another squad player. We’d be better off waiting for the summer to identify a permanent replacement for Bains.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 21:39:28
Meanwhile we allow our left flank to be targetted and over-run every game. With the greatest respect some of you need a reality check. We are in a relegation struggle 'now' not in the summer. I am just watching Crystal Palace - WHU playing each other and playing football that up until now we cannot replicate in a month of Sundays and both now chomping on our heels. Until Schneiderlin finds his form - constantly picking him is eroding his confidence - we need someone now to sit in that little circle in front of Gueye and dictate play (for me Rooney) . We need someone (surely Garbutt would at least have the pace) at LB. This is not pessimism but downright reality, 7 games without a win is not awe inspiring.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 21:55:46
So we go and buy what? If your happy with Garbutt. We’ve got x2 new forwards. So yet more midfielders? We need to reduce the numbers and trust in the players manager wants and get them playing properly.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 22:30:29
It's not our job to identify a left-back, that is what Walsh is paid big bucks to do. We have needed a back up/ replacement for Baines for two years and to find ourselves using a player that could not get into the Southhampton team out of position is just not acceptable.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 04:52:35
Trust has to be earned, and the players (most) , manager and DOF don't deserve trust at the minute. Near enough every team below us are on the up and we're in freefall. Ok if we win two games the oblivious blues will say 'What was all the worry about'? But at the moment we are awful. Even the likes of Newport are giving a better account of themselves, giving Spurs ago and creating more chances. This is no joke now, the lot of them need to stand up and be counted.



12 Jan 2018 08:27:49
I don't think we need to make the same mistakes as in the summer and sign a load of players. Realistically we are looking at 7th or 8th in league no matter what.

Rather spend on quality and get 1 rather than 3 or 4. The only immediate position needing covering is left back - so rather than 20 million for Walcott - why not pay that for a young left back - we paid top dollar for Baines and he has proven his worth without a doubt.

Mori to come back leaves centre backs well covered - although one of jags/ Williams needs replacing in summer - I think we are being linked with Charlton center back

Goalkeeper fine

Right back - fine

Midfield - need the balance but gueye lookman Dowell bollasie Davies there is quality there - maybe besic jmac and schniderlin move on and that frees up cash for summer for midfielder (is it not with giving klasson a few games to see if he had the potential first)

Up front we are looking better now. Personally I'd like to see Sandro and the new lad given a chance together as I think Sandro could come good - obviously siggertson starts most games with Sandro coming on. Haven't even mentioned Rooney or new Nigerian lad who should be ready next year post injury.


1.) 12 Jan 2018 09:31:51
Sensible post a new LB is all we really need and we only need cover there until the end of the season so maybe a loan or recall one of the youngsters. So unless we get our first choice pick in this window then we should wait. As for the balance of the side then I IMO it all depends on the managers formation RM and RK looked to play 4-3-3 or something like a 3-4-2-1 more than 4-4-2, hence we don't have wide mids that are good at defending as well as attacking. This maybe why we have a shed load of CM and wingers/ forwards that can play out wide. So unless we go back to a 4-4-2 the the balance is probably okay. I also agree we should give the new players more time to bed in as I think we have a couple of good prospects in Vlasic, Sandro and Klassen is still trying to find his feet as in the prem.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 18:26:25
Who are you watching week in/ week out?
We need pace. We don't create chances. A LB might help that but not by much.
Also I'm not sure if you've ever seen Mori play but I can assure you he wasn't great before he got injured. On the ball he is terrible and his defending is only marginally better.
Mori was our worst defender when our defenders were good. So he ain't going to look much better now.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 12:47:52
I wouldn't move JMac out since he came back he's looked the player we all remember when he first signed Schniederlin on the other hand I would sell at any price to get him off the wage bill as he adds nothing to the team.



05 Jan 2018 10:43:17
Can any of the Eds please explain why most Everton signings seem to be a huge drawn out process.
Are we a bit naive when it come mea to announcing our interest. Maybe the club should just stay quiet until deal in last stages.
Sigurdsson Sandro last window and now Tolson this window.

FYI - I promosed myself I wouldn't check the transfer news every 2 mins as I "spoilt" last years holiday in Greece apparently checking for Sandro signing in the summer.
Looks like Tolson siffning has ruined new year (and any chance if sex) - he better be good! Hahaha.


{Ed025's Note - i must agree sobs we do have problems when it comes to getting transfers across the line...maybe were just crap at it..

1.) 05 Jan 2018 11:06:47
I am not by any means saying it was down to Moyes, but in his time we did just sign players without all the fuss. This may not have been every signing, but in the main we just signed them and the first thing supporters knew was when the photo appeared in the echo. There seemed to be a policy change when Koeman took over from Martinez. Because even a few Martinez signings were done efficiently and silently. But now you are right. we seem to announce a signing. Then figures in the press appear that both clubs announce. EFC's figure is often way above what the other club says. I find it very weird.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 11:06:56
Do you not think fans of all clubs think that? You do not follow their transfer dealings so it is hard to compare.
For example how long is it taking Chelsea to secure Barkley?

3.) 05 Jan 2018 11:22:17
Doesn’t seem many clubs have the sissiko problem or the Giroud carry on. We could have had Sigurdson a month earlier rather than getting him a month after he was training alone and not match fit.

If you are going to sell lakaku then most clubs would have a deal done or kept him until a deal was done rather than panicking all summer.

Valencia signing 2 years ago was awful.

Barkley not going to Chelsea was purely down to Ross. You watch how quick the deal gets done this time.

Maybe we are just a bit more classy when it comes to dealing with people we are selling.

Lakaku Arteta Stones Rodwell Rooney all left pretty quick once money agreed. None of them were dragged out.

4.) 05 Jan 2018 12:20:12
I remember the Harry Catterick days when a player had made 3 appearances and Harry was still denying we had any interest.

5.) 05 Jan 2018 16:17:21
We’ve got to have one bad thing ed we can’t be perfect 😂😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - that made me smile eddy..

Its World Cup year. He has to be playing. That's the only reason I think he won't sit out his 12 months contract. I think he will go to Swansea In swap deal. Works out well for all parties. I think he has shots himself in the foot.

Swap him for sigurtson - save the 40 million for dzeko/ giroud/ dembele/ benteke.

Funny that Swan. Made me laugh. He’s total garbage. Who wants to sign a striker that cannot score. It would be as crazy as signing Valencia from West Ham - who would do that? Haha.

Barkley transferred to Chelsea in x1 day. Catiniho to Barcelona in x2 days. Van Dijk to Liverpool in x1 day.

Sandro to us x3 months. Cenk x3 weeks. Giroud x2 months in ground and didn’t sign. Sissiko stood up meeting. i'm glad he didn’t come mind!

I realise they take time but we seem to announce our interests far to early then really struggle to get them to sign.

Something is not right? PR thing.

Not about being inpatient - about doing it right and professional.

We signed a striker for 10 million. Do u think he will not get a game. I don't think we are a club spending 10 million on reserves just yet.
