Question for Ed 002. You mentioned that SA and CS were the choice of Walsh, so he's had his way on that one. Has this caused a shift in transfer priority as we've been led to believe from Koemans time that we needed a striker and a left sided defender? And do you know of any players in particular that we are pursuing as all we seem to see are random names in the media.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - It won't change anything - the club need to get out of where they are now. January may well see Sandro Ramirez return to Spain with Valencia or Espanyol and could see Ross Barkley depart as well. The club are looking at trying to get a deal for Theo Walcott (F) - he is wanted by Sam Allardyce and his time at Arsenal is drawing to a close as he is doing no more than stagnating now, so it makes sense. Whether it will to him or not I don't know. Richmond Boakye (S) is a player Walsh is keen on and I assume he would have discussed him with SA by now - so an approach is not out of the question. Ezri Konsa (CB) is a youngster who thinks he can walk in to any EPL first team - we will see if Everton maintain that interest or if SA would prefer a more humble addition. Everton will be looking for a new lift back and if they want a slight risk then I expect Luke Shaw will be available. Steve Walsh had sent a scout to watch Marcel Halstenberg but it is hard to see him being available in January nor being interested in a move to a club without Champions League prospects. Sam Allardyce will no doubt have some ideas as well.}

Great reply ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

2.) 06 Dec 2017 15:40:56
Thank you Ed002. Interesting read.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 15:45:02
Would Sandro be a loan or permanent to your knowledge, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - They would look for a loan to buy I would think.}

4.) 06 Dec 2017 15:50:07
hi ed what are the chances of Shaw on a loan? I suspect ManU would want to get a permanent transfer if possible just wondering if a loan with reasonably fee would be considered.

{Ed002's Note - They will look to sell if they can - I think a loan less likely. There will be flurry of left-backs moving in the coming months and they won't want to end up stuck.}

5.) 06 Dec 2017 16:39:50
Could you see mirallas leave ed? Cheers mate.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect in the summer.}

6.) 06 Dec 2017 18:05:00
Wow. Cracking info Ed 002. Much appreciated.

7.) 06 Dec 2017 19:02:34
Fantastic reply ed, could you see Schneiderlin or Klassen leaving too in January or the summer? Seem neither Klassen or Sandro are rated highly at the club.

{Ed002's Note - The summer would be more likely.}

8.) 06 Dec 2017 20:06:09
Thanks for the reply ed.

{Ed002's Note - you are welcome.}

9.) 06 Dec 2017 21:08:06
Hi ed I never heard of richmond boakye is this lad any good seen YouTube videos of him but they can make average players look world beaters.

{Ed002's Note - a lot of clubs have taken a look but nobody is biting which may say a bit.}

10.) 07 Dec 2017 07:25:40
Boakye could be an amazing signing if he can adapt to the Premier League, which is always the million dollar question!
Could be a pacy combination up front with Bolasie which definitely wouldn’t allow teams to settle when we break!

Let’s see what happens.

11.) 08 Dec 2017 07:51:36
Think we need to see what will be. My immediate concern is Sunday and the fear we may need to wait a while for another 3 bus's.



05 Jan 2017 13:48:52
Look an confirmed. 4.5 year deal.

Toffee ace



01 Jan 2017 17:09:24
31 days to recruit. Hopefully a lot of prep has already been done and we won't have to wait until the last day to get deals over the line. Everyone has an opinion on where we need to strengthen but for me the priority has to be an attacking midfielder who has a bit of craft.

We need someone who can see a pass (forward) and not be tempted to turn around and pass backward. Someone who can weigh in with a few goals, who can strike from distance, a player who just wants to score or be part of a goal scoring move.

We have a 25 goal a season striker, but after that there is no one who can get near to double figures. This is sub standard for any team with European aspirations.

So I would be really happy with any new signings that can share the burden of goal scoring with Lukaku or any player that can make us more relentless in an attacking threat.

Hopefully over the next month we will see what Koeman, with the help of our DOF can achieve to make us a team that shows more going forward. Whilst of course not neglecting the back.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - Lookman will be a good addition TA. There is a CB potentially on the cards as I have mentioned and an enquiry has been made recently about Nicolas Pepe (which implies a Gerard Deulofeu departure) but there is much interest in Pepe with Lyon and Newcastle both looking for a January deal.}

1.) 01 Jan 2017 17:42:22
This is what annoys me everyone saying we need a better creative midfielder barkley is that player but unfortunately every time he breaks forward he only has lukaku to pass to. Gerrard is right when he says our own fans our ruining barkley.

2.) 01 Jan 2017 17:54:40
Thing is willy. Moyes didn't trust him, Martinez wasn't honest with him and Koeman is frustrated with him. So exactly what is it that these 3 managers failed to see that you see?

And if indeed he turns out to be the player you and Gerrard say he will be then brilliant. We have one homegrown number 10 and another for competition. Win win. Not so annoying now is it.

3.) 01 Jan 2017 18:04:47
Cheers for the info Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

4.) 01 Jan 2017 18:27:58
Toffee Ace I see where your coming from.

The thing for me is no wonder Barkley comes across as confused. Just read your 3 line summary of the managers he played under. And he's still only 23!

Enough to make anyone think twice about what they are doing and how to do it.

5.) 01 Jan 2017 18:28:17
Are we in for Memphis Depay?

6.) 01 Jan 2017 20:43:59
Toffee ace I think the 3 manages u mentioned have failed to see that there is no one to support rossi barkley.

7.) 01 Jan 2017 21:04:31
Very possibly Shakey. So would you support him with a creative midfielder and play Ross just behind Lukaku? I still think we need one.

8.) 02 Jan 2017 13:40:32
There is a great will here wanting Barclay to succeed because he is local but let's face it he has allways flattered to deceive time to get rid I feel.

9.) 02 Jan 2017 21:01:15
The main issue with Barkley is he is consistently played out of position. He is not and never will be a "No 10" he needs to be dropped deeper into midfield and creative players ahead of him for him to flourish. That's what all 3 managers have failed to do.

10.) 02 Jan 2017 23:51:42
Ross has got ability but no brain! He's too slow to recognise a pass. He simply does think quick enough for the prem.



31 Aug 2016 17:41:38
Jimmy Mac in talks with Sunderland and also palace and West Brom. According to SSN.

Pos jimy and gibbo goin. if only sissoko comes in that'll leave us a bit short. hope there's moreally than 1 centre mid coming. Still optimistic.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 19:02:19
McCarthy won't go anywhere unless we get someone else in for cover.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 19:31:11
And don't make it up. Everton in talks per SSN. Not Jimmy Mc
Big difference.

West Brom have sacked Pulis. That’s a pretty good option for Watford. Maybe things will now move along with Silva.

Stay away from Pullis Ken&Co please, lol.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 14:52:42
I am not to sure if Van Gaal is the personto take us forward either, mind you this lot we have now would soon have blisters the way he would make them work. Odds slashed on Van Gaal apparently but also Koeman is 10/ 1 to replace himself. You have to laugh don't you. Supported this lot since I was in Baghdad and most of you were still in your Dad's bag, this is the first time I have felt a little worried.



07 Nov 2017 13:56:46
We're not going to get Simione, we may get Dyche, we could get Silver but probably get Allerdyce.

Toffee ace



29 Oct 2017 17:49:33
That's why we can't have Unsworth on a permanent basis. That first half team away at Leicester was a poor choice. It totally played to Leicester's strengths. You just can't do that. I'm a bit disappointed with him to be honest as it was very naive to think we could play so wide with no support for the full backs.

Toffee ace

1.) 29 Oct 2017 18:02:40
Agree totally Toffe mate, we need a new manager and Quick this is bloody serious we are not going to pick up many points before Jan, and heaven forbid Big Sam or someone who can stop this rot whole team apart from Jordan just not motivated, believe me we stay like this and we will get relegated.

2.) 29 Oct 2017 18:22:51
I'm disappointed with Unsworth saying he knows what the fans want and he's picked a team that will play off the front foot, so why didn't they start like that? I expected a lot more from today but these players are just not delivering and they are not nearly as good as most of us thought. Rooney and Baines need benching with Williams. I'm still hopeful Sig will come good and hopefully Ross will return like a new signing. Tom and Gana in the middle don't work and both were shocking at preventing the counter attack for Vardy's goal after Baines's poor delivery. Worrying times! I thought it was all down to Koeman but something is really broken at our club. Now I pin my hopes on Coleman and Bolaise returning and the possibility of a striker in the January sales.

3.) 29 Oct 2017 18:49:35
We're in a desperate state boys and we need to do whatever it takes to get out of it, fkin disillusioned with it all lads.



23 Oct 2017 13:51:38
So Koeman sacked and Unsy is in charge (tbc) . Please Unsy, play the players in their right position. Why oh why do managers think that they can put square pegs in round holes and then get results. Even more so keep their jobs.

Anyway. Very few on here will be that disappointed that he’s gone. Probably correct to say that the season starts now.

Skylark mate. You’ve said this from the start so fair play to you.

Toffee ace

1.) 23 Oct 2017 14:51:50
Yea Skylark you were accused of being negative by plenty on here, myself included. As Toffee ace says you were right about Koeman. Hopefully next appointment will be better.



21 Oct 2017 20:04:34
Ok, we are all going on about Koeman not being good enough and not doing his job properly, except a few. But we have a job to do too. We're supporters and need to do just that. The old lady is like a library right now. So like it or not, we are also not doing our job properly.

Now I know we have a right to air our disdain at what the team is serving up but we need to give our voice to the team from the off and try to do our part.

If after we have roared the team on they are as rubbish as we have seen, or the tactics are as inept as we have witnessed lately then fine, boo all we want. It's our right. But we're supporters and fans, chosen and privileged. So let's do our job properly and if at the end we have something to cheer, then stick your chests out and be proud to be the best supporters in the country.

Who knows, it may be just what the team needed.

Agree toffee we also have a job to do the old lady is nothing like it was in the 70s and 80s but I don't think many grounds are any more hits just the way football has changed and I think for the wors my friend.

I would avoid the term finished as it’s a bit disrespectful in the way it sounds. Not saying you meant it that way. But I would say that for us he was just great. He and Arteta were that good even Mrs ace would watch.

He loves the club and the fans and totally stands for the kind of large hearted player that we have always loved to watch.

But that can’t continue and the best players eventually have to bow out. Martinez would often use the word Icon too cheaply. This would never be the case with our very own icon Tim Cahill.

I’m curious as to how this will play out tbh. He’s not really had the chance to go much further than survival in the league. I don’t see us struggling in the way his reputation as a manager would indicate, especially after last Wednesday. I’m not saying we’re all ok now, but I’m more optimistic.

He’s got 18 months so let’s see if he can make the most of them. If I was him I would be moving hell and high water to shrug off the fire fighter image and see if I could be remembered for winning something instead. Let’s face it, this is the only chance he will ever get at this level. He’s kind of admitted that already.

Hind sight is a beautiful thing. We conceded 9 goals in the previous 2 games to teams finding it difficult to score normally.

Fair enough if you had full confidence that this 4-0 result was coming, but I think if you asked the rest of us we would probably of thought you were a bit soft.

There was in my opinion no panick appointing SA. He’s not my choice, but I completely get why the club had signed him.

I have no doubt that the board wanted this sorted weeks ago. Their primary target was Silva and an approach was made after the game against Watford. If that was well received he’d have been in place by now. It hasn’t turned out that way but not for the want of trying.

I’m not sticking up for them as I too find it all very frustrating, but we need to see what has already happened before we start making comments that in view of the facts just aren’t true.
