Hi Ed’s lots of rumours floating about that we are looking at Rafael Leao any truth behind it.

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Rafael Leao has been watched by Everton after he impressed when the scouts were there to watch another player (Thiago Maia). Barcelona also has an interest in Rafael Leao and a number of other sides including Newcastle, Manchester City and Spurs have looked at him. It might be a tough ask to drop out of a likely Champions League club and move to Everton in the summer.}

Big job ahead for Brands then.

I know it’s mentioned below about Joel Piroe but thought I would start again as this may get lost as the subject rapidly changed to the Lookman Walcot debate

Ed you have mentioned before about Brands not going back to PSV for players like when there was the talk of Lozano, as it wouldn’t be in good taste cherry picking the side you just left. My question though is would this still be the reflection of approaching PSV for players? Is a season later enough water under the bridge in the world of football?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - He's a kiddie and has not managed to get in to the first team at PSV but has done well in the youth set up. He would not be one for the first team but he is refusing a new contract and is out of contract in the summer - which means Everton can speak with him now and look to agree compensation with his club. Juventus are already in this process and will then ship him out on loan.}

I read a long time ago that Brandts feels that the dutch league is not tough enough to develop players for the prem league. It was when he said this I felt he might be the right man for the job.
Not sure of his exact words.

2.) 11 Mar 2019 02:10:35
Thanks as usual Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Reports of interest in Batshuayi on loan which I am sure couldn’t happen as we have Zouma on loan.

Southern Toffee

1.) 03 Jan 2019 15:21:57
Unless we buy zouma.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 16:07:05
Zouma would be a good buy.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 18:58:33
Isn't Yarmalenko coming? ;-p.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 21:54:03
Southern toffee you can loan a maximum of 2 players from 1 club so if we interested we could make a move for him but not sure if he can be loaned out twice in a single season maybe one of the eds can shed some light on it.

{Ed002's Note - One player from one club.}

5.) 04 Jan 2019 13:39:43
Yep one player one club. Brands has said he will not buy for the sake of buying (sensible) , so confidence in Gomez quite high as is the price, confidence in Zouma - not sure. Confidence to put in a bid on Batshuayi - not sure.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 17:31:26
Could get a two for one offer from Chelsea, take them both at a discounted price, do not ask you do not get.



02 Aug 2018 08:31:26
Reports of Williams Martina Mirallas and Vlasic told to train away from the squad?
Little surprised that Vlasic is in there.

Southern Toffee

1.) 02 Aug 2018 09:11:51
I've said from the start that Vlasic isn't good enough for Prem football.
I am made up Silva has shown his steel.

Hopefully all 4 will be bombed out asap.
Buying a player on the whim of 1 good game, playing as an opponent, and 10 million quid was lunacy.

A desperate move that only highlighted how far away we were.
Again the champions of mediocrity and fairness will be up in arms about a player that's simply not good enough. Because he's a nice guy who hasn't rocked the boat. Just like someone claimed the other day, "I'd keep my mouth shut if I was on 100k a week" precisely! They've not rocked the boat for exactly this reason. Get these charlatans out!
And let the professionals run the asylum. Too many back seat managers.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 09:36:01
Liked the look of Vlasic at the start of last season, good close control etc. Always thought the issue was that he could beat a man but could never get away from them. So by the time he's decided what to do with the ball/ space, they're back in position.

Doubtful, but maybe a loan to hone his craft?

3.) 02 Aug 2018 10:51:52
Buying on a whim is rarely a good thing perhaps a loan to say Newcastle to sweeten a move of Lascelles?
I hear we are also looking at the lad from Rennes James Lea Siliki not sure if any truth in it and I missed the match but heard he tore us apart.

4.) 02 Aug 2018 11:26:26
I’d like to see Vlasic go on loan to a Championship club so we can see how good he is. I’m sure several clubs would bite our hands off. Agreed - good to see Brsnds/ Silva making positive steps to untie the squad and move forwards. Need a couple more young, hungry, talented additions to the squad. Would love it if we could persuade N’Zonzi - season changer if we can pull it off.

5.) 02 Aug 2018 12:19:17
3 management teams and more than enough appearances tell us (surely? ) That he's not good enough.
The lad isn't physical enough. Surely he needs to go to Spain or Italy,? Somewhere sedate.

6.) 02 Aug 2018 18:06:11
Delighted with Silva showing these players the door but I would have added Sandro to that list.

7.) 02 Aug 2018 18:53:09
100% Darkclouds.



10 Jul 2018 10:13:57
Lille are looking at Stek as a backup! Not sure that would be feasible leaving us with only Pickford as a first team keeper
Unless one of the youngsters is set to step up.

Southern Toffee

1.) 10 Jul 2018 10:41:48
What are the odds that we would bring in Joe Hart on a season-long loan as backup to Jordan Pickford?

2.) 10 Jul 2018 11:47:44
I'd rather bring Big Nev back as back up. Joe Hart seems to have completely lost it.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 11:57:31
Very long I’d imagine.

4.) 10 Jul 2018 11:57:56
OllBlue1878: Maybe, but we’ll need an experienced backup if Stek leaves and Hart would be available. Can you think of any other experienced goalkeeper who’s realistically available AND would accept the backup role?

5.) 10 Jul 2018 12:34:44
Fair point Bobby, can't think of any. I think Hart will go somewhere to be number one though, even if he has to move abroad again.

6.) 10 Jul 2018 12:41:13
OllBlue1878: You’re probably right. I do think the situation regarding cover for Pickford has “gone under the radar” because of all the other changes at the club and the speculation about so many outfield players.

7.) 10 Jul 2018 12:42:53
One other thought: if not Joe Hart, what about Fraser Forster as cover?

8.) 10 Jul 2018 13:03:20
Same wave length as me Bobbyc1878. Just about to mention Fraser Forster. The Saints letting him leave apparently. You don't want a back up who is just happy to be back up. He would push Pickford to his up most best I think.

9.) 10 Jul 2018 13:29:26
I just do not like the guy. He's arrogant and speaks poorly. He's always been a bitter bloke and I really don't hear good things about him as a person. Seems to be unpopular 2ith players too. Why would we want him?

10.) 10 Jul 2018 13:59:11
I’d have FF as cover. But I’d doubt he’d accept being #2.

11.) 10 Jul 2018 14:39:44
Not for me, the lad coudlnt catch a cold last season let alone the ball.

12.) 10 Jul 2018 15:25:13
Wonder if Ed001 could link his player profile about Forster? Might change a few minds.

{Ed001's Note - as requested: Fraser Forster player profile.

13.) 10 Jul 2018 16:04:55
Ospina? Gomes? Ruddy? Randolph? there is 4 I would take as cover.

14.) 10 Jul 2018 18:55:39
That'll be a no then ed001. 🤣.

15.) 13 Jul 2018 13:09:02
What about that lad Karius haha.

Nice interview with Brands talking about the transfers and deadline day and the challenges faced how Yerry wanted to come but other clubs made offers but we persevered with the original offer on the table
Also talked about the support from the chairman with everything going on, so another thank you to Mr Kenwright.
And was gracious in thanking the team around him like legal and the support staff who headed to Barcelona, I think we lose sight at times of all the others involved

So thank you all for delivering a great window and renewing our optimism in the season ahead.

Over to you Mr Silva and the team! COYB!

Nice postman.

{Ed002's Note - Cute buns?}

2.) 15 Aug 2018 17:01:56
Our postman is really ugly,
Scares the heck out of our dog.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 09:12:30
Nice to see that Brands will be no pushover over with transfers. Although I expect the "just get it done, why do we always take so long over transfers" brigade probably won't be too happy.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 09:32:06
Different kettle of fish our management Team now eh mategood post.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 13:13:42
Just goes to show. Papers write crap to sell newspapers and know almost nothing. Brands is obviously a knowledgeable football man.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 18:14:50
He is the real deal, and I believe Moshri wanted him right at the begining.

7.) 16 Aug 2018 18:16:19
I totally agree but with every appointment and signing it’s only judged on results.



15 Aug 2018 01:31:40
There’s a lot of talk of Usmanov and it’s going to be spun all the time by the journos about investing in Everton which would be great. But why don’t we focus on the team if anything happens there with Usmanov then great but I think we are in an amazing position in our transition right now so let’s not let the Usmanov situation distract.

Hi Eds I have a question which I am wondering if you could shed some light on
So the window has slammed shut, well. we kept it slightly open to get Big Kurt over the line
Now there is all this talk of players going out on loans to championship clubs so my question is are these purely loans or can they also be loans to buy or similar?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Simple loans. If there is any separate agreement to habe a formal option to buy that has to be notified on the TMS - but a separate gentleman's agreement can exist.}

1.) 12 Aug 2018 20:20:17
Excuse my ignorance but what’s TMS?

{Ed002's Note - It is FIFA’s Transfer Matching System that contains all details of transfers.}

2.) 12 Aug 2018 23:43:45



10 Aug 2018 09:25:17
I always like a bit of transfer deadline day was nice this year to be involved in a positive way.
Now we have to watch this team knit together and gel on the pitch and I am looking forward to that evolution over the coming weeks and months and with depth all over the pitch I can see a number of other players upping their game!

I only seem to see thumbs ups on posts currently, is this our way of curbing negativity or is there some error? 🤔.

Southern Toffee

{Ed033's Note - no error, but if you want to be negative, i suppose you could moan about no thumbs down.

1.) 06 Aug 2018 20:16:27
Its only on phones I think ST, its normal on my laptop.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 23:53:35
Don’t want to moan just chuckled I couldn’t see the usual thumbs down.

Is going to be interesting what happens Eddy, I read somewhere that Brands has said that the summer moves have been being planned and worked on since September so sounds like all has been planned out just need to execute the plan 😉.

I read those stories in the papers but think that’s the papers trying to make a story after the night out Sunderland
Anything to sell their papers.

Is lozaro the young hertha Berlin player Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes. And you can add RBL to the list of interetsed sides, but Napoli are certainly pushing.}

You would think they would talk up how well we played and that it made United look that bad,
It was such an amazing game and the old lady was rocking so much we could feel it down here in the south!
Digne was amazing! My son is a late starter in football terms only in his second season at the age of 10 but Digne has been inspirational, for a child with autism he makes it easier for my son to understand the role by watching him.

It’s been a great race for the title going back and forth and whoever wins it hopefully will be the deserved winners and won’t be down to some dodgy decisions that may have cost Cardiff their place in the premiership and also cost us the sale of Niasse! 😡.

Personally I think Pickford and the defence need to buck their ideas up. They might not have confidence in him but similarly he might not have confidence in them
Hopefully next season there is more solidarity and they work better as a unit.
