I see a lot of people on social media are calling for Moyes to come back, just a question on that 1 - with the current set up we now have at the club with Brands as director of football, surely Davey wouldn't work under that set up would he? As he's used to being his own manager and making his own decisions on players, transfers etc?
Answers on a postcard please.

He would crawl over broken glass to work at the club again given the financial support the club now offers in comparison to how it was for most of gis tenure. Not saying I would or wouldn’t have him though. I’m torn on the idea.

2.) 10 Feb 2019 10:58:47
Moyes time has come and gone if we do sack Marco then we need the get next appointment right but personally I think Marcos going to get time whether right I am not sure if he would just would ditch zonal marking in my opinion are set piece defending would improve dramatically.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 10:59:40
All this nonsense about moyes coming back has made me sign up.
Can people honestly say they want him back?
Silva having a tough time of it and results are shocking but to honestly say you want moyes back is crazy.
He did well with what he had when with us but never took us any further, his mentality against the big teams always held us back.
He left for Man U and was disrespectful to us when he left and then tried to get our players in the cheap. He then failed miserabley there even with financial backing.
He failed at Sunderland he failed in Spain
Modern football and management has moved on and He is out of touch with modern football
Why anyone thinks his appointment would be a good one is beyond me.

4.) 10 Feb 2019 07:58:34
I think people are just at the stage now where they take anything to get out of this nightmare that Silva and Moshiri are serving up. Gio van Bronkhorst is leaving Feyernoord this year and I think this is the sort of manager we should be looking at, he has done fairly well with Feyernoord and am sure he could work well with Brands. Do any of the eds know if this could be possible or if he is already tied up to a new club?

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath about van Bronckhorst joining Everton. And only a few days ago everyone here was telling me Silva will be manager for the long term.}

5.) 10 Feb 2019 11:19:43
I would have Moyes back yes but Bielsa is mentioned this morning and would like him as he is an evellent manager although tends not to be at a club for more than a couple of years.
Moyes would stay for years and do the project as Moshiri calls it, and would do it well. All these overseas guys tend to move around and do not seem capable of doing a project.
Ability wise Bielsa everytime but will he stay at the club even if successfull?

6.) 10 Feb 2019 11:38:39
Dark clouds - how do you know moyes would stay for years and do the project well?
He had financial support at Man U and failed
I think you clearly have some soft spot for moyes as the manner in which he left us the fact that we rarely troubled the big teams in his reign would in itself be enough not to have him back.
Then add in his failure at Sunderland his failure in Spain and the fact he hasn’t been snapped up by a decent team would suggest he is where he belongs.
He is not Everton’s messiah and should not return.

{Ed025's Note - your spot on for me dan..

7.) 10 Feb 2019 13:18:32
Moyes back at Everton! FM would be better off selling up and buying Newport County. He would have more chance getting promotions through to the Premiership and winning the CL before Moyes ever wins a major trophy. Now for gods sake move on from this Moyes rubbish.

8.) 11 Feb 2019 15:59:48
He allways overachieved on the budget he had. He developed young players and made a profit on sales. Ok I can understand that maybe he should never return but to knock his achievments baffles me.

9.) 11 Feb 2019 17:42:39
Well said, Moyes should not come back, but slagging him off for over achieving and having a tactically well organised, passionate and hard working side is wrong. Moyes is by far a better manager than the stubborn buffoon in charge now. Still using zonal marking and tactically clueless, still must give him more time to keep his fans happy what a fraud.

10.) 12 Feb 2019 08:15:40
Doesn’t matter if you’re using zonal or man for man marking, if the players aren’t aggressive enough to attack and win the first and second ball then you will always concede from set pieces. The players are totally at fault for this rut, overpaid, uninterested and not playing for the shirt or the badge. The finger should be pointed at them.

11.) 12 Feb 2019 12:00:43
Good post Tron.
It’s the players on the pitch who are failing to perform. There is no passion no desire and no interest from the majority of them.
Overpaid prima donnas.
Until their poor performances affect their pocket they won’t care. As rubbish as they are they still get paid their ridiculous wages. Dropping them into the under 23’s or leaving them on the bench doesn’t bother them as they still get paid.
The only way this can change is if they get their pay docked, unfortunately I can’t see this ever happening.

12.) 14 Feb 2019 00:07:23
Blue Tron / Dan - spot on.
People on here and elsewhere are clinging to this 'its the fault of zonal marking' and i really do wonder if they actually watch or understand football. Watch the Wolves game for example. WE give away yet another stupid free kick. We then have players stood either side of Jiminez outside the box.

The free kick is played and BOTH our players are virtually stood still and allow him to run onto the cross and head home. What has that got to do with zonal marking? Absolutely NOTHING. It has to do with players having a little aggression, wanting to stop runners, block runners, or just plain and simple winning their own individual battles. And we are losing far too many of them.
And please don't tel;l me that it is Silva's fault because does anyone really think he tells players to go out and lose those battles?

In the Watford game clearly Zouma got angry cos one minute he was charging up the pitch and then after the game is in the refs face. Now clearly the second one is wrong but it would be nice for the whole team to show the same aggression / desire throughout the game - and not just when a decision goes against them or when we play the big sides.
Next 4 home games will show if they have the fight for the club and if they dont, however much ability they may have, then close the door on your way out.

I am not saying Silva is blameless but vast majority are not his players and he is dealing with dross bought by Koeman and FatSam. He will be there next season regardless so let's get behind him and the team. And let's just hope these overpaid prima donnas start to show a little bit of fight for that shirt.

13.) 15 Feb 2019 07:37:41
DaveW1878 couldn’t agree more mate, well put.



09 Feb 2019 18:41:40
., strong rumours swirling tonight that Moshiri will use the 2 wk break coming up as time to pull the trigger and sack zonal marco. that 9 x defeats now in 13 games, clearly relegation form and mostly against lower to mediocre teams too, but who next for boss? The Everton managers position has become the poisoned chalaice hasn't it? If it was me, I'd appoint Arteta at the end of the season.

Soli blue

1.) 09 Feb 2019 19:02:59
Arteta will not leave the thousands he's on a week! Not a chance.

{Ed025's Note - he would get more off us lancer mate..

2.) 09 Feb 2019 19:51:27
5/ 2 fav is David moyes, I would love arteta but whoever it is marco needs to toddle off now I have a backed him on here for weeks but av reached the end ov my patience.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 19:40:54
Defo Ed he would jump at the chance.

4.) 09 Feb 2019 20:15:23
Think that makes two of us Johny mate, the time is nigh.

5.) 09 Feb 2019 20:31:27
I’d love Arteta but think he might come up short the wrong squad for the style he wants to play but Moyes will and knows the trenches and how to battle he can get his side playing as well but we need fight right now not flair.

6.) 09 Feb 2019 20:47:46
Surely no one in here wants Moyes back? Everyone called for big Sam's head because the football wasn't good enough! Same old be careful what you wish for. Sam got the best out of a terrible bunch and proved he is ten times the manager Marco will ever be and has a clue how to defend! No point getting rid now though as no one of any real quality available who would join us.

7.) 09 Feb 2019 21:19:55
Defo mate not for me, once a traitor always a traitor.

8.) 09 Feb 2019 22:02:16
benitez for me.

9.) 09 Feb 2019 22:22:41
Moyes did a job for us, that’s all. He failed with Utd and he absolutely did himself no favours whatsoever at Sunderland, let’s not even mention his stint in Spain. He is NOT the messiah, he’s a naughty manager!

We have to wait until the summer I feel before we pull the trigger. Then let’s talk about who’s next.

{Ed0333's Note - He’s just a very naughty manager love it Pierre.

10.) 09 Feb 2019 23:17:31
Strong rumours from where exactly?
The press. players, ex players or from within the club. or just fans?
Silva is staying unless we become embroiled in a relegation battle.

11.) 10 Feb 2019 02:30:36
I think we will stick with Silva for now, the Cardiff game and the Derby May change that.

We say it every week but the Cardiff game is a must not lose game.

On a final note and tongue in cheek, as we are paying Sam, do we have a call back clause, if it goes belly up against Cardiff.



30 Jan 2019 12:05:51
Sky Sports: Everton have accepted offer from PSG for Gueye in the region of £26million🤔.

Soli blue

1.) 30 Jan 2019 12:29:02
We seem to buy at top price and sell at bottom price, I think in this day and age even an average player like Gaye is worth 30 mill, but I guess it depends on length of contract at current club, till a good profit on the guy.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 13:15:52
We haven't accepted 26 mil no bid been accepted yet.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 14:04:23
Still a good profit made on him If or when he goes.

4.) 30 Jan 2019 15:13:19
Ridiculous I know we have to get rid of a lot of players but not important first team players and certainly not one of the best tacklers in the prem as proven in last 2/ 3 seasons for half the market value.
How do we expect to get rid of the rid of the rest of the crap.

5.) 30 Jan 2019 15:19:42
If true surprised we are letting McCarthy go out on loan.

6.) 30 Jan 2019 16:23:01
It’s garbage. He won’t be going. Everton want more than PSG can go to due to FFP. Everton know it, PSG know it. It just won’t happen.

7.) 31 Jan 2019 00:32:50
£26 million and throw in Meunier.

Mikel Arteta anyone? He knows the club like Solskjaer knows Man U.

Soli blue

1.) 12 Feb 2019 16:23:27
Been thinking this for a while.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 16:32:06
I would like to see him but with an experienced person with him, just don't know who.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 18:00:30
Not for me. Still don’t buy this “because he works with Pep he will be really good”. I thought that of Colin Harvey when he worked with Howard and that didn’t work.
I think if we do decide to change our manager then we need someone with a strong CV and a winning mentality. Who would that be? I have no idea, just glad it’s not my job to pick him or maybe her?

{Ed025's Note - a she would be good woburn, then all our players could do their hair, nails and make up together..

4.) 12 Feb 2019 18:12:54
Solskjaer is a puppet, Ferguson is in charge, big gamble Arteta, that we can not take.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 18:52:22

I'd like to see Arteta with someone experienced too DFS.

7.) 12 Feb 2019 23:04:53
Kendall was not doing so well till Harvey became his assistant, what a team. I feel Harvey never got enough credit for the part he played in our success.

8.) 13 Feb 2019 15:44:46
Very true DC, but management clearly wasn’t for him.



11 Feb 2019 21:05:12
., how about Gareth Southgate for manager then guys? Just putting it out there like🙄.

Soli blue

{Ed025's Note - i have heard worse suggestions soli mate..

1.) 11 Feb 2019 21:08:48
He has an easier job with England.

2.) 11 Feb 2019 21:33:38
I think the mood are fans are In at the moment there is no one in the world who could do a job at Everton it's becoming a impossible job and will take a very very special manager to take us forward and will take a very very long time.

3.) 11 Feb 2019 21:45:21
Like Martinez, Koeman, Southgate has found his niche.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 10:15:12
Bring Joe Royal back
Big C.

Managing club teams and International teams is completely different. Huge no from me.

6.) 12 Feb 2019 16:27:37
Well said Skylark so very true.



02 Feb 2019 18:54:15
., has anyone else noticed how Silva is always blaming his team after a bad performance, his latest pop has come this evening where he's ordered the team to handle the pressure and every week we lose there is this vocal outward criticism in front of the cameras/ press criticising the team continually. he never seems to accept responsibility himself. from r me this is such bad management it's untrue. when Moyes was the gaffer we had our lean times and runs of bad form but he never to my memory ever kept bemoaning his own players in front of the camera but humbly accepted responsibility on his own shoulders and would often say that he needed to get back to the training field and work that bit harder with his team to get them back to the level they should be at. this was a completely different approach to what we are seeing at the moment and from big Sam too. there is something terribly wrong to the core at this club at the moment and it needs fixing fast.

Think we will lose tomorrow against a very dangerous/ good Wolves team under a good manager. & in particular a certain young player by the name of 'Neves' who in my opinion is the best/ finest young player in PL at the moment and destined for great things. we should be busting a gut to sign him in the summer, but would probably cost in excess of 50/ 60 million.

Soli blue

1.) 01 Feb 2019 15:46:51
Is that the same Wolves that lost to Palace 2-0,City 3-0,and only drew with Shrewsbury 2-2 by any chance, c'mon give our lads some Credit.

2.) 01 Feb 2019 16:32:05
Yeah, well, on current we could only just scrape past bottom of the table Huddersfield Town, so we shall see in due time. & in any case, I’m just really pointing out the talent of a certain player called ‘Neves’ who has impressed me greatly this season!

3.) 01 Feb 2019 16:58:17
I see nothing but a win for us tomorrow. We will tame the Wolves.

4.) 01 Feb 2019 17:25:35

Its as good a time as any mate.

9.) 01 Feb 2019 18:57:13
I think what GB is saying is let’s not write the boys off before a ball is kicked and that every team can win a match so let’s give them some support.

10.) 01 Feb 2019 18:58:40
I hope the players don't feel your faith Shakey. A sure way off dampening their confidence.

11.) 01 Feb 2019 19:13:25
Too right Southern mate, that's the last thing the Team needs mate.

12.) 01 Feb 2019 19:15:38
What I will say is appalled at Silva or is it Brands farming out Benny to Wigan, this is some talented lad, I rate him above Davies, makes the runs but with his head up. As I have mentioned before, got to put it down to Managers favourites. Prediction in DM against Wolves (where speed of pass and foot is required) we will have Davies dropped, Gomez and Gueye in. One who slows the game down so much I can pop out for a pie and the other guaranteed to pass to the opposition.

13.) 01 Feb 2019 19:45:39
I think we should leave team selection to Marco, far better informed than any of us mate.

14.) 01 Feb 2019 21:47:20
Wolves are a very good side and way ahead of where we are now in their first season back. We have the players I am convinced, to drive us forward.

15.) 01 Feb 2019 21:54:29
Hard for you to watch these lads GB, my opinion is that Benny is a step above Davies.

{Ed025's Note - i must admit i do like benny as well DFS, in fact we have some very good youngsters at the club..

16.) 02 Feb 2019 08:19:19
Beni is a great talent but why wouldn't u give him 6 months at Wigan to get first team football? Didn't do Harry kane any harm going out on loan did it.

17.) 02 Feb 2019 08:39:28
Beni is young and needs to keep improving so I agree, a loan out for 6 months will do him good.



01 Feb 2019 14:33:21
., I thought no there's a real chance/ opportunity now for young Tom Davies to stake his claim in this Everton team, always liked him as a player and just have this nagging feeling he could yet become a star player for us and country under the right mentoring and stewardship.

I agree mate, he has been nowhere near his best this past month probably due to the fact head and heart had been turned towards Paris. same old Everton I’m afraid. all us fans can see it week to week in his performances but wrong decisions continually taken by the club.

. & b4 you all say it - yes he failed at Man Utd. but then so have Jose, Loui Van Gaal and others, so no shame there as the job was just too big for him . I look at players like Gomez in midfield - he is so lacking at the moment in fitness, technical and confidence - everything ironically that Moyes was good at instilling in players that had previously failed elsewhere - remember Arteta at Rangers? Look what Moyes turned him into at Everton, I feel he could do same here with Gomez as Silva quite clearly isn’t doing with him at the moment. remember Cahill from Millwall. just imagine what Moyes might do with Richarlison right now who is another so clearly lacking right now. & so I could go on.
