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 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚.

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.

Hard game this week. Need to start taking points from top 6. Putting a decent show on vs Man Utd not good enough. If we want to make next step (moving alongside Spurs Arsenal and Man Utd) - need to improve our dismal record against them. If we do this - we will attract better players and hopefully able to cement 5th / 6th and then look on to top 4 which at minute looks incredibly difficult. Chelsea City and Liverpool are a class above - leaving 1 place for Utd Spurs Arsenal and Everton (hopefully) - long shot though!




05 Nov 2018 13:15:07
any of the Ed's know if Zouma is able to play vs Chelsea?
If not probs a good time for Mina to make first start. I like the look of Mina and Zouma rather than Keane and Mina/ Zouma.

Quality goals on Sat - quality support in stands too

3 huge games coming up. Feel like we need to beat one of Chelsea or Liverpool to keep in touch - with top 6.

Suprised by Chelsea's start - I do think spurs and arsenal will drop points in next few games - if we can close gap a tiny bit before Christmas and add to squad (centre half instead of Keane) I reckon we could be pushing for 5th.


{Ed001's Note - no he can't, Prem rules block loanees from playing against their parent clubs.}

1.) 05 Nov 2018 13:27:45
Cheers Ed!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. Should be a chance for you all to see Mina. Though I personally think Jagielka would be a better choice.}

2.) 05 Nov 2018 13:42:56
Not sure if you really mean that Ed, Jags has been a great servant for Everton but much too slow to play against Chelsea IMHO. Ed. any thoughts on Mina's quality?

{Ed001's Note - I meant it, he may be on the way out, but Jags can defend, whereas I have my doubts about Mina. I really do not rate him at all from what I have seen. When your positional sense is so bad that the utterly inept Davinson Sanchez is having to cover for you, then that has to be a worry. He is big, quick and very very good in the air, but he is going to need a hell of a lot of coaching if he is to be in a place to use those qualities to good effect. If he was playing alongside Jagielka, who could then talk him through the game, it would be a lot better. He needs guidance badly. I am not sure if Keane is the man to give him that.

Mind, having said that, for the way Silva wants to play, his ability to attack the ball might make up for his positional sense. He should notch a few and clear away a lot from set pieces, which is something Silva's teams have struggled with in the past.}

3.) 05 Nov 2018 14:40:11
Thanks Ed. An interesting read, we should find out against Chelsea.

4.) 05 Nov 2018 17:04:17
May be better Zouma and Mina then. I am aware as ed001 points out of Minas weaknesses and believe some sides took a more pragmatic view than others that perhaps gave more weight into his scoring against England.

5.) 05 Nov 2018 18:50:06
Just to add my thoughts on this going forwards I think it has to be mina and Keane personally I think zouma is better than Keane but if there is no chance of signing him then it would be better for next season to play Keane and mina together to build an understanding than mina zouma and start again next season.

{Ed002's Note - Everton have paid a very, very significant fee to have Kurt Zouma on loan and he is the best of the CBs Everton have on the books and they will play him.}

6.) 05 Nov 2018 20:10:44
I agree he's the best of the bunch ed is there any chance of it being possible to sign him permanently or would that be no chance.

{Ed002's Note - It would be possible if the player wanted it, if Everton wanted it and at the right price James.}

7.) 05 Nov 2018 23:55:06
How does it stand with season long loans Ed, let’s say Everton wanted to strike up a deal in the January window, may be wrong but would Everton be able to buy Zouma if all parties agreed, or do we have to see the season long loan out first.

Logic says we could buy in January, but I do not know the ins and out of season long loan players.

{Ed002's Note - No problem doing that, a loan can be converted to a permanent transfer at any time at all.}

8.) 06 Nov 2018 17:59:58
Cheers again Ed.



01 Sep 2018 09:55:37
Today I am hopeful lookmans feet do the talking.

It's a quality squad - it's up to him to take his chance. Score today and keep place vs hammers next up - COYB.

A little concerned with our injuries so far.


1.) 01 Sep 2018 11:04:53
Hope he gets his chance. I have a sneaky feeling Calvert lewin will get the nod instead. even though for me he is an out and out centre forward.



25 Aug 2018 10:46:07
Been awake since 7am. Hard game today - let's hope it's 3 points! Never thought I'd say it last season but I think we will miss Schneiderlin. I would like to see Zouma in for hollgate but I think it will be the same at the back.
Hopefully see Bernard from the bench today COYB!




19 Aug 2018 20:57:12
Big game next week. A win at bornmouth used to be taken for granted. They have a good and dangerous front two.

I was concerned that we didn't buy another forward but I think we have more than enough goals in the team. Although not as good (as still learning) I think Calvin Lewis will be able to play the Tolson role when needed and hold the ball up for our midfield players to run on to. I do however feel naisse doesn't fit into team anymore.

I would like to see Mina play next week as Wilson and King will be a test. I personally think Mina and Zouma are a better centre 2 than the other 3 we have.

On a slightly negative note - I think Pickford has been poor so far. I thought the free kick against wolves he had some unatural movement in his feet which left him flat footed and yesterday he made a couple of mistakes - but that's just being extra picky.

Very last thing - who is this fella wearing Walcotts strip - he looks completely different hAhaha.

COYB - great start!


1.) 19 Aug 2018 21:32:01
I think holgate and keane have done well, but i agree with the fact that mina and Zouma will be a better pairing Once fit and ready.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 19:20:09
Nilsatis either of them (Mina, Zouma) partnering Keane or Holgate would be fine to be honest because both have steel in them and will not allow their space to be bullied.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 19:19:21
Would like to see DCL be a bit more selfish in front of goal, when he was throughout he should of drilled it at the goal. That’s where lukaku gets his success, selfishness in front of goal.

I agree. It’s going to be tough keeping Kenny, Baines, Davies, Dowell, JMac, Scinderlin, lookman, naisse, DCL, Toson happy however
We have a squad for Europe - this would aid rotation - hopefully the players can see that.

Nice decisions to have though.

I hope so. Going to be hard as I think we will need clean sheet. Tough ask from Mina and co. Fingers crossed though.

Couldn’t be a harder time to get into too 4 - Man City a shoe in every year. Liverpool look good for next few years. Chelsea also back to being really strong. Leaves 17 teams after last place in my opinion. I just hope Spurs are spent up amfrom stadium. That squad is not good enoughwirg 3-4 injuries. Hopefully Abramovich clears off - no visa for UK and please let Jose stay and Man Utd next 10 years. I think we can close gap - need to start taking points from top 6 regularly though.
