Summer hols can't come quick enough. This is turning into a disaster. Season is over for me. Would you give silva anymore millions if it was your money?
Trouble is, we are still paying Sam and Ronald and would be paying 4 managers if we sack Silva.

it's embarrassing and no real solution - giving people time is fine if showing signs of improvement but we look awful / no balance at all. I have no idea how to solve this - surely can't go back to drawing board again.

Random question not everton related but seen as your names Newcastle if the eds allow I'll ask. Never been out in Newcastle before and going there with the missus in 2 weeks where would u recommend for food.

{Ed025's Note - not sure about the food johny but i have been there a few times and the big market or quay side are the best drinking haunts mate..

2.) 27 Jan 2019 13:02:41
Quayside mate - don’t take your misses anywhere else. Loads of bars and restaurants so just have a walk about and you will find loads. Aim for just below Tyne Bridge - that’s the best area.
Whatever you do - don’t end up in Sunderland;)

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.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 07:27:52
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.

5.) 06 Jul 2017 07:24:53
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.

Thank God Internationals over
Just a quick discussion - I know it won't happen but would anyone take Stones back in Jan / End of season if became available on loan?
Pep looking for Laporte cover whichbsuggests they would have an extra centre half on his return

I would.


1.) 13 Sep 2019 17:29:27
I don’t think he has improved since he left us. And when we sold him for £50m I thought then that we had a right good deal. I’m not saying he’s not good enough for us but I do think that a strong back four working as a unit is a sum greater than its parts, whereas Stones is someone who I see more individual.

Everyone said that his errors were down to his young years but he’s peaking age wise now and still makes costly errors.

I could be completely wrong but for now that’s how I see him.

2.) 13 Sep 2019 17:51:12
I mean, bring him back but as a central attacking mid because that's where he spends most of bis time.

3.) 14 Sep 2019 18:58:48
After today - definitely don’t want Stones back - he has had another shocker.

4.) 15 Sep 2019 15:43:39
He'd have fit right in to today's side then.



31 Aug 2019 14:59:51
Read an article about Klasson.
He has played x3 games this season. Best player in team and fans loving him.
X1 goal and x1 assist

He says he was not good enough for style of play Everton wanted to play - pressed on that he said the long ball under Allerdyce

I didn't really see much of him to comment but he never looked comfortable the little I did see of him.


1.) 31 Aug 2019 15:49:32
The thing is Sobs, we will never know. Koeman mismanaged him and Allardyce, well, didn't really need a midfield did he.

Marco managing him could have been different but who knows.

Lots of people pointed to his physical presence but Bernard and David Silva do ok.



27 Aug 2019 12:40:00
It's becoming a bit like last season on here. Frightened to make a comment in case one or two people jump on your back

We can all support Everton and this should be a place where we can praise, take the mick and yes - criticise where we want.

I'd be more shocked if people didn't criticise a 2-0 defeat to Villa - it was simply not good enough and similar results will see us finish 8th-10th.

I've read people would be happy with 8th this season - yet another season of transition being quoted to accept 8th.
We have a very expensive squad and should be aiming for 6th minimum.

We are too pleased to praise mediocrity on here. Bernard - 2 goals in total as an example.

We should be an attractive team to watch but it's actually been very dull so far.

Silva is not untouchable - he gives poor opportunities to youth, he is not exactly charasmatic and wonder if the players respond to how dull he is, his tactics at times are questionable.

Recruitment is crazy - seem to sign more and more midfielders despite being obviously short of central defender and another striker (Kean is only one likely to score out of DCL, Naisse, Toson) - Ellis should - but won't be given a chance (just like Pennington, Dowell, beni, Kenny, davies, Gibson) -

Personally I don't see him being here end of the season. You would think Silva and Brands had us in CL positions playing expansive football judging by some comments on here. They have achieved nothing and personally don't think we are much better than when Koeman was here.


1.) 27 Aug 2019 13:30:59
Sobs, get your crash helmet on mate.

{Ed047's Note - I’m not even sure why you appointed Silva, his record at Hull and Watford should have said everything to your owner and winning a title with Olympiacos has to be akin to winning one at PSG, can’t really go wrong.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 14:00:47
I strapped it on blue lagoon just before I sent it😂.

3.) 27 Aug 2019 14:06:19
Sobs never be afraid of putting up a post. Your post is at least trying to give an argument on why you don't like things at the moment and what you looking from the team.

Personally, the football under Koeman was poor in the first 5 months of his reign but then exceptional in the last 6 months of his first season. The start of his second season was terrible but I believe Walsh contributed to it all with horrendous signings.

Different people have different levels of patience. I think that the EPL is extremely difficult and even more so to attack the top 6. Brands made a good point that we should only need to bring in 2 or 3 players. That way you have continuity within the team and you get a settled squad of players. However, we've had to bring in a lot of players in a short space of time.

I'd be happy with 7th to 10th this season. i'd expect people like Iwobi and Kean to be better through the next 6 months but the best of them next year. We could challenge further up but it depends how well things click and how quickly.

I totally agree on the CB position and as much as Brands pleased me with the quality of signings, I feel these could have been brought in earlier. This hasn't helped the manager early on.

Like all managers they make mistakes especially on Friday where I think he should have changed it up earlier but then I can praise his tactical knowhow in the wind over Chelsea, Man united, arsenal and how we performed in both Derbies.

Pennington, Dowell, beni and Kenny are not good enough at this stage and I'd be more inclined to say they won't ever be. Look at them and tell me if they make a top 6 side?

Davies has potential but the fans are killing him rather than the manager. He'll be another that will leave like Barkley because of the fans.

As for Gibson, he's now introduced to the squad and played some part in preseason. he's had it tough though with Zouma, Keane and Mina in front of him. I like the lad and think he'll be a future player for us at CB.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 14:32:42
I think that’s a fair post. I’d like to see us play better - also like us to do something like a cup run/ qualify for Europe before we hail Brands as The Messiah

I have my doubts over Bernard, Gomez, Mina, and Gbamin - hopefully we are not talking about him like we do about Walsh in a couple of years!

Bernard (Walcott) , Gomez (klasson) , Mina (Williams) , and Gbamin (Scniderlin) - might seem harsh but I don’t see them as massive upgrades on what Walsh brought in

I just pray to God Kean is not a Sandro - I must admit Kean looks quality from what I have seen though.

5.) 27 Aug 2019 14:34:08
As long as I’ve read this site there’s always been differing opinions on the managers. I’ve advocated some and called for the head of others. Whilst they’ve been condemned or supported by others. It’s a forum to say what you want within reason (hence the judicious editing by the guys we call Ed) . So we should all feel free to say what is on our minds and also accept the differing opinions of others. The choice is ours. Let’s face it, we’re Everton supporters, our skin should be thick enough to take it.

6.) 27 Aug 2019 14:43:34
No that's fair Sobs. Gomes is under more pressure to perform this season. The others you mention either need to improve or show consistency.

Brands reminds me a little of Levie at Spurs. He seems to be very much in control of the purse strings which is good but I hope not to the detriment of creating a difficult circumstance for the manager.

7.) 27 Aug 2019 14:56:13
Game of opinions isn't it. I've seen enough of Kenny beni Dowell and Pennington to know they're not good enough. Personally would be horrified of Bernard and gomes go backwards enough to be on a par with the 2 you compared them with. Gbamin only has to out some effort in to be better than schneids, and he's on a fraction of the wages. Mina the jury is out on. If he puts in woeful performance after woeful performance and gets himself some stupid sendings off then he may be comparable to Williams.

8.) 27 Aug 2019 15:38:36
Sobs spot on mate and ED47 also. It certainly is a wonder given his Premiership record but wasn't there a whisper that he was Brands recommendation. I also believe Brands will bring in good signings, the only negative and it may be a big one is his closeness with the superagent.

9.) 27 Aug 2019 15:40:29
Sobs a very good comment, people should be able to put across their views, I am guessing last season you gave credit to our home games against the top sides and this moment in time unhappy with certain aspects of the team.

We all have a gripe when things goes wrong, where the problem occurs is when certain posters avoide this site when we are playing well, hence the end of last season, but are quick to come on and say told you so after a defeat.

Have to say Sobs I have seen some good comments in the past where you praised the team and manager.

That’s why some posters are sick to death of seeing the doom mungers come out of hiding to slate the manager.

We are all Evertonians and should want success, be over the moon when we turn over the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Utd, however it seems certain posters would rather be proved right, than the success of Everton Football Club.

Like I say Sobs I do not class you as one of them, but others posters must feel the same as me towards a few certain posters, happy to be proved right.

10.) 27 Aug 2019 16:08:48
Same people go overboard all the time, sobs. It wouldn't get a reaction the way it does if these same posters came on when things have been going well but they don't bother, they go into hiding until we lose a game or play badly. Then they are right on here slating the manager/ team like it's groundhog day. That's what gets to a few of us on here.

11.) 27 Aug 2019 17:11:03
That Bluepotato is what I see on here as a regular poster.
Some fans use this forum as a means to vent their dislike but do not use it to give credit to the team, manager when we have a good win.
And that frustrates me 100 times more than a point of view I don't agree with.

As I've said though I am just scrolling past the doomers now and all is good again.

12.) 27 Aug 2019 18:52:08
No issue with differing opinions but as you say please give credit too when it is deserved rather than just knocking the team. Took klopp 4 years to get where they are so give the guy time. We got some really good players. Gomes is quality despite bad game. Bernard is a creator not finished unfortunately. Gbamin looks a beast unfortunate injury. Digne is immense going forward. Defensively maybe not so. Get kean up and running and richy back on form and we will start doing well.
It is after all only a competition and only 1 side can win. Look how far we are coming from and look for progress. Need to cement top half by Christmas then push on further up league.

13.) 27 Aug 2019 22:50:21
Look how far we are coming? We finished 7th 3 years ago, 8th two years ago and 8th last year.

We have been passed the 4th round in F. A cup once in 11 years.

We’ve won 2 games in the league cup in the last 4 years

I realise this is not popular but a bit of reality is needed

I really really hope Everton do well and most of my posts are positive - I am a realist though and I just don’t see the progression people are talking about.

14.) 27 Aug 2019 23:28:30
Try to forget about league positions as it skews the picture. One team always has a purple season. Us with Martinez and more recently Burnley, Leicester and Wolves.
Points progression is a much better gauge.
We are hoping to break into the top 6 and if we don't then we at least need to be seen as getting closer.

15.) 27 Aug 2019 23:58:55
When I saidblopk how far we are coming from, I meant we have been miles behind top teams since mid 80's. Never mind where we finished in league. We finished 4th under moyes with lowest number of points needed for 4th ever.
The style of football has improved dramatically especially since sam. We have good players, still trying to get rid of so called dead wood and all of this takes times. Brands is the man, we all agree on that. Silva was apparently his choice so let's get behind the club, manager and team. We don't choose them so we need to support them. If you still not happy at end of season then call for his head. He will have been here 2 full years then.

16.) 28 Aug 2019 00:28:09
when we finished 7th we had rom doing bits, then we had 3 managers including rhino who all had their faults (Plus Walsh was shambolic) .
Now we have Brands, a manager who doesn't hide behind players when it doesn't go our way and has proven to change tactics and has our defence only bettered by the top two. I understand what you're saying but you're going back to the moysey era as part of your opinion.
Its only three games in so i hope you're wrong but i can see progression even if its from a biased point of view.
Good posts btw sobs as you do bring great points in your arguments.



23 Aug 2019 17:18:34
Hope we get an early goal tonight - take a bit of pressure off.
Really hope DCL bags one to take a bit of pressure off his shoulders.
I have a feeling Gifi will get x2 tonight - 3-1 Everton COYB!


1.) 23 Aug 2019 18:17:03
I would settle for a 1-0 win to be honest. A couple more goals would be fab but another clean sheet would give me a real confidence boost in the team.
Richarlison to get his first of the season is my prediction, maybe a later goal too when Moise Kean comes on.
If Kean starts then i'm confident he will net a couple.
No matter what though, let's just get the win by any means possible!

2.) 23 Aug 2019 22:00:15
DCL had his chance for his goal first half. In a surprise to no-one he missed it. The way to take pressure off his shoulders is to get him out the side ASAP. Poor all round tonight but the game plays out differently if we had equalised as quickly as we should have.



09 Aug 2019 13:12:19
Champagne Charlie Nicholas sating we have not strengthened in the right areas - we signed a goalkeeper, defender, 3 midfielders and a forward.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 13:53:37
Sobs he is not taking into account that Brands has more than half an eye on our youngsters (under 23's) . If he is just referring to this Window then he is correct. Our priority was for a 1. CB 2. Striker 3. RW 4. RB. Lost a very good DM and CB arguably our two best in those positions. We have not brought in a CB or RW. We have brought in two versatile midfielders plus Gomes (hit and miss last season but now hopefully in tune with Prem) . Iwobi is primarily a LW and Moise I believe not currently an out and out striker.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 13:54:06
But no barmaid!

3.) 09 Aug 2019 14:02:09
How many RW do we need Richarlison Walcott if we brought in another one we surely would of got rid of Walcott, lookman left and Iwobi came in.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 15:19:21
Nicholas, mersen and 'lawro' the worst three out there mate would take no notice about anything they have to say.

Can’t see getting zaha - if that Eason cards would not sign Iwobi - could see centre half in Jan - that’s all we need. think that’s the last time we will see 5-6 coming in. hopefully Gibson, Ellis, Hollgate take there chance.

I’m in Spain on family hols. I look at this whilst on toilet. I have had to invent the squits to get more toilet / rumour time!

We are a right winger and centre back off being a great team. I for one thought smalling would have been good edition. Think Kean will be good again this year and Mons will hopefully improve. Smalling and gibson filling in.

Hope the storm brings in right back, right winger, central defender, censer mid and a striker.
Can’t see us getting all that in less than 2 weeks

Zaha, Kean, Decore, Zouma and Arias would be nice though.

Would not like to start season without Zouma and Gueye. The whole spine of team would be gone - particularly as we have no idea who will be upfront.

I’m not a Silva fan but I recognise we need to give him a chance.
I think Sigi has to hit the back of the net to start taking pressure off Silva and the team.

The real problem I see is that we don’t seem to have improved despite all the investment - let’s face it we have had a really good run of fixtures - villa, bornmouth, palace, wolves, and Watford plus shef Utd next week - couldn’t have picked a better start really

I think we are a better team on paper but not getting the results or performance which I think ultimately will cost him his job.

I do feel a little sorry for him that he asked for a centre half as a priority - 2 goals today were clear centre half problems.

I don’t think the defence does pick itself. Coleman and Mina are not shoe in’s -

Sidebe Keane Gibson Digne
- I would like to see this as a back 4 - with Pickford this is a young 5 that could be settled for a few years.

I thought it was a great game to watch. High paced and exciting. Just what we needed.
Glad Richarlison, Sigi got on team sheet.
I hope and think Wolves game will be exciting too and hope we win which all in all will be a decent start to the season.
Very impressed with Iwobi
I think both Kean and Toson moved ahead of DCL yesterday - I do however hope he can manage to add goals to his game as he does everything else pretty good.

I’d like to see Gibson play also. Hoping for a good performance and hopefully a few goals to get confidence up ahead of Wolves on Sunday.

Centre midfield becoming a bit of a worry but I think Davies has a great opportunity over next few weeks.
