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.

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.

I'm optimistic about club now. I think we will hugely benefit from no Europa league. Coleman and Baines being fit from the start. Pickford playing in World Cup is ok and glad mori there too as could do with few more games. Gueye could have done with a rest but good luck to him.

I think Kane might be much improved with Baines Coleman and mori in settled back 4 with hollgate and Kenny also benefitting from that when they get chance.

Midfield is a bit off a mess with far too many players - I'm hoping a few move on.

I think we will get another forward with Tolson and start kicking on.

I think arsenal and Chelsea are in a bit of a mess - 2 or three good windows with quality rather than quantity could see us looking at top 5-6 rather than 7-8.



1.) 18 May 2018 09:27:41
Think there will be a few leaving mate.

2.) 18 May 2018 10:22:52
I agree gb. It's just if we can get buyers for them after the season they had.

3.) 18 May 2018 12:37:39
Sure Brands will help do that mate.

4.) 18 May 2018 20:31:58
In think this window will be very important, we need to learn from this season, where the weakness was and mend it, if we only need 2 players then so be it, but if I'm honest I think we need at least 5 in and 5 out.



28 Apr 2018 20:27:21
I can't beleive I'm going to write this but I'm slowly changing opinion on Allerdyce.

I think positive signing of people like Walcott and Tolson together with somehow turning Schneiderlin around and getting a settled back 4 seems to be paying off

I think next season we will struggle to get players as not in Europe but maybe the likes of vardy, Zaha, mahrez and McGuire are realistic options that would make us better. - even Balotelli on a free or payet?

Hard ask for Sam to get us out of relegation battle playing exciting football. So I think maybe he should be given a chance. All his signings have been a success so far.

I think sigi will be a better player and no World Cup. I think bolassi and Rooney are not up to it so maybe get Rooney to China for a few quid!

Just a thought (but I'm ready for thumbs down) - anycase looks like season is finishing positive - let's enjoy last few games - I would really like to see klasson in last 3 games.


1.) 28 Apr 2018 21:39:20
Thumbs up, dude. No this hasn’t been a stellar season, but heck 8th place with injuries and mediocre talent? It ‘s not my decision, nor do I have any influence (okay I did drink some Chiangmai, but I drank for the team) .

Whether the manager is Big Sam, Yosemite Sam, or Sam who doesn’t care for green eggs and ham, I will be here. Cheer when they score, jeer a little then drink some beer when necessary.

I’ve said previously we need an intelligent off season, proper acquisitions, a challenging preseason, and a real game plan.

Sam or no Sam, let’s all be a little more positive (myself included) .

Beer tastes better with a joyful soul, because tears spoil the beer.

More Craig Shakesphere than William.

Be careful what you wish for, cause we could end up with one of he Neville brothers instead of Sam.

2.) 29 Apr 2018 08:30:11
I'm happy, a win again clean sheet. Yes the footballing gods are certainly toying with EFC at the moment.



28 Mar 2018 22:21:55
Anyone keep any of these next season?
Jags (? Coach)
Sandro (don't think he will want to come back)

I don't think we have had anywhere near our moneys worth fro klasson, shniderlin and bolassi.


1.) 28 Mar 2018 22:48:48
I’d keep Jagielka with the medium term view of moving him into coaching as you say, plus Browning and Klaasen. Maybe keep Galloway over Browning but not seen him play for a while. Definitely keep Bolasie because he’s just come back from a long term injury and is improving. Offers a real threat so would give him another season to start delivering an end product.

2.) 28 Mar 2018 23:01:07
I'd keep Jags as player/ coach. I still think there's a player in Klaasan if we can get a coach that suits his type of football. However, he has people ahead of him in his positions. For his sake maybe moving on is the best thing.

I think k Besic has massive potential as he is showing at borough. However his injuries are always holding him back. If he can stay free of them he'd be a keeper for me. His attitude and determination is one you want in your side.

I'd move the others on.

3.) 29 Mar 2018 06:28:54
Why would you have Besic as keeper Blue John? 🤣.

4.) 29 Mar 2018 07:43:11
More importantly than the question of who would you keep. is who would you promote from the youth team or sign to replace any of them? Because we are in need of replacements for Jags, Baines and Williams immediately. I guess Walcott has replaced Mirrallas? Klaasen and Scneids maybe just need time to settle? They were proven players prior to joining us. Hopefully Keane will have settled by next season too? Lots of changes I think. Plus maybe a new manager? Things are likely to be tough with all this change.

5.) 29 Mar 2018 09:47:52
That is the problem with Besic, his style of play, coupled with his fearless attitude will always result in him spending an awful lot of time on the treatment table. Klaasen, Garbutt, Jags, Browning I would keep. Controversially, Mirallas and Sandro I would bring back also. Sandro never given a chance and Mirallas still a dangerous player and effective when his head isn't in wobble mode.

6.) 29 Mar 2018 13:19:56
I'd keep Jags
Klassen although he hasn't proved himself to us yet
Browning because he was starting to show a bit and then picked up an injury
I'd add Bolassie and Niasse to the leavers - great personalities but haven't the quality in final ball
A lot of business to be done to get replacements though.

7.) 29 Mar 2018 14:09:50
The mood certainly is different to last year. People were giving opinions of who they wanted to keep and sell, then followed with but what do we know in Koeman we trust haha.

What a joke that was. I don't really care about player outs. I think 1 or 2 good purchases and a new manager can turn around the players we have here. I think we currently have one of the best in depth squads we have had in long long time. We just have no leader.

8.) 30 Mar 2018 13:17:04
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 he's got big hands Smit!



28 Mar 2018 00:14:09
I don't feel as down as a lot of people on here. I think we had an exceptionally bad transfer with Sig. took too long. By the time we got what should be our best player he was not match fit.

New keeper (also very young) with a really unsettled back 4 - Coleman mori and Baines would have bee regulars and think we would have picked up more points with Koeman if he had these.

Europe was a disaster for us. Could have done without that. Leicester or Burnley will suffer next season for this

God knows what happened to striker. Surely the board should have got someone in of quality before letting lakaku go. Huge error but hopefully learnt.

Also lost influential player in Barry who was model pro for us. Think Davies would have kicked in better if he was around as coach.

The players are there now who can excite: Coleman, sig, bolassi, Tolson, Walcott, Dowell - I just think we need a bit of luck next season with injuries and hopefully kick on.


1.) 28 Mar 2018 14:27:24
Excellent post Sobsnewcastle.

2.) 28 Mar 2018 16:41:10
Cracking post Sobs. Add in Barkley's goals and assists missing and there you have a summary of what went wrong.

3.) 28 Mar 2018 19:37:09
I don't think Koeman and Walsh got it too wrong, I think they expected Rooney or Sandro would come in and one of them get 10-15 goals. The rest of Lukakus goals were to be spread about the squad through more productivity. Unfortunately it didn't work although Rooney could still finish the season on close to 15 and more if he hadn't missed so many penalties.
It didn't work out as they planned but then again Sandro could have come in and started banging them in and we would all be looking at Koemans reign a little differently.
It's fine margins like that which can make or break a career/ season.

{Ed025's Note - your right smit..

4.) 28 Mar 2018 21:25:10
You are right Smit666 but also add in the fact that they did not foresee both fullbacks getting long term injuries and really not having sufficient cover. Martina and Kenny did their best but really in the Premiership. you need top players in all positions. Keane was also a let down for what we paid. I see his replacement is playing for England now! Ithink we should have spent a bit more on a utility player who could play anywhere across the back line.

5.) 28 Mar 2018 21:47:58
In regards to Keane, I think the defining factor is Ben Mee he has made Keane and tarkowski look better than they are. Walsh should have identified that and bought Mee.
Walsh also has to take the blame for not signing a LB. Even now we are being told one was not available in the summer and January. That has got to be a massive mistake by Walsh, unless Koeman convinced him we didn't need one and then the blame lies with Koeman.
I know it wouldn't be popular with Burnley but if Walsh stays then he should go after Mee in the summer.



01 Feb 2018 20:31:04
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!

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.

We have learnt a lot from last year - so we sign another 8 players next season? If we do that we have learnt nothing.

I think also a director of football would need to know who the manager is going to be. I presume he will have said he can work with Silva and hopefully they will both sign together. I can only hope they have their ideas on the squad.

I think though whatever happens Moshiri is now firmly taking charge. I think the coaches, board and players are in for a big turn around - I wouldn’t be suprised to see at least 10 leave:
Robles, jags, Williams, Galloway, Browning, garbutt, besic, jmac, besic, naisse, Rooney off top of my head.

Personally I’d like Aarnold from palace to replace Baines long term. I’d also like Gibson at Boro.

Give klasson Sandro Vlasic and lookman a pre-season to see what they can do as well as new Nigerian striker (forgot his name)

Pay through the nose for Zaha would be my perfect summer but I think another striker seems more likely. Vardy an option but he is 31.

Have a great summer everyone!

Have to think which of our players would get in top 5 teams. I think Coleman is only one. Very difficult to say that but realistically we are 8 good players off. That’s a left back, 2 centre backs, all the midfield and one striker. Fighting for 5-7 is realistic I’m afraid. I thought Walcott was pointless signing and not impressed with bolassi klasson Keane shniderlin. That lot is 100 million - we can’t just chuck another 200 million at it. Need a manager in that will be there for 5yrs minimum to stop mid match of Moyes Martinez Koeman allidyce players. They seem incapable of playing together.

He is 20 years old. Scored 10 in the championship as midfielder. I don’t think his minerals are in question. I’ll think he will be a star. A bit out of form now but it’s a long tough season in championship - probs needs a rest. hopefully we can get 10-15 games out of him next season and go from there.

What more can he do. Scores for under 23’s. Scores when he goes out on loan and is clubs top scorer.
