Ed002, you mentioned yesterday that Chelsea had pulled out of pursuing Bernard because he was a bit light weight for the league. Reports today are saying they could still come back in. Do you know if there is any truth to these reports? Or has their stance not changed.

{Ed002's Note - I explained what I know.}

Lightweight? Never understood this term. If that’s the case surely when the likes of Silva and Coutinho come to the Prem they were also “lightweight”? Players adapt.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 15:20:23
I agree BitterBlue. Was it Joninhio who played for Middlesbrough years ago who was about 6 stone soaking wet? There are plenty of examples of small players that made it in the premier league.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 17:07:30
They get more protection these days too. It’s more whether they can adapt to the culture and the climate - living in Ukraine should mean Liverpool will be cosmopolitan by comparison.

Ed, Do we get anything from the Deulofeu sale from Barcelona to Watford? Not sure if we had a sell on clause.

Toffee ace

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe so.}

1.) 11 Jun 2018 17:35:15
Thanks Ed.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 20:52:37
We DO indeed get something from Deulofeu's sale. It was in the original agreement that should Barcelona buy him back he had to be in the 1st team squad for a year. If he was subsequently sold AFTER that season Everton receive a percentage of the sell on fee. That was from Martinez at the time of the initial deal.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 01:41:45
We get to laugh at Watford.



06 Dec 2017 13:20:04
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.}

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.}

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.}

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.

21 Oct 2018 20:18:00
The international break clearly broke our rhythm. It took us 70 minutes to get it back but I thought we were excellent throughout the match. We never looked in serious trouble until the pen, but it was a safe pen and Pickford punished them.

The most pleasing thing for me is that we had ideas on the bench and the manager used them well. All three subs were attacking options when it would have been easy to give Mina minutes, Silva went for the kill instead. Well done Marco.

Man U away is a free hit so to speak, but I would love to pick up points there. If we can then we are on a well earned run and that could really put the top six under pressure.

Finally, whilst I understand that palace are a team we should be beating without being disrespectful, we did a better job of overcoming them than you know who did with one shot on target against Huddersfield. Yet they are looking to win the league. Really pleased, very positive and ultimately feeling blue in the best possible way.

5.) 22 Oct 2018 07:52:12
Hey johny1989 he is only having a little dig at our rivals. allow him that little luxury once in a while. His main point is the improvement on last season and I am 100% in agreement with him. There is no comparisson between our current squad and the one we had last season. The squad had been badly managed fot 5 or 6 seasons and at last we now have a manager who has brought some real quality in and is also using the youngsters at a rate that allows their progression. Compare the squad of yesterday with any squad from any of last seasons games and the difference is obvious!

6.) 22 Oct 2018 10:27:56
i no degs just does my head in mate, celebrate the blues forget bout them, also just a point, until wer consistently above them i wouldn't throw too many shouts about them round, there playing terrible but are joint top conceded 3, scary thought is at some point there gunna come good and us slagging at them will look very very silly.

7.) 22 Oct 2018 14:06:31
Thanks Degs, and Johny1989 I will try not to embarrass you in the future. arhhh who am I kidding. You got no chance mate. I will never stop winding them up and being wound up in return. I just enjoy having digs at that lot too much to ever stop. But as Degsy said it’s about the winning so let’s just enjoy that too.

8.) 23 Oct 2018 06:32:30

17 Oct 2018 21:31:40
Whatever Barkley has said, and whatever context it is meant, he isn't better than what we currently have at the club and that's all that matters to me.

Compare his sideways passing and wayward shooting to Sighurdssons defence splitting passing and accurate shooting and that pretty much decides it for me.

Bottom line is for me he's nowhere near Sigis quality and still won't be in 10 years time. I've moved on and so has the team.

Better not Bitter.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think he would griffo, we hyped him up because he was one of ours but in all honesty he is mediocrity personified mate..

3.) 18 Oct 2018 15:43:24
I think Barkley is a quality player with real ability who has amazing potential that injuries have curtailed. If he can stay fit will blossom. But he has a mouth totally disconnected from any brain and even if there is a connection, he makes Rooney look like a genius! What the **** is he doing coming out with comments about EFC now anyway? The guy might be a great footballer, but he is an person for getting involved with his past club and silly comments!

{Ed025's Note - a rocking horse has more brains than ross degsy, amazing potential only matters if you realize it and up to now he is falling well short mate..

4.) 19 Oct 2018 06:35:04
where does he walk into the team? he will never be as good as siggy, ever.

5.) 19 Oct 2018 06:51:55
I wonder what he will say about Chelsea when he carnt get into there team. Don't blame the training just get down to it and work harder, no one is bigger than the club, so onwards and upwards and 3pts tomorrow.

6.) 18 Oct 2018 22:59:31
Eds sound like bitter blues and should respect the talent Barkley has. bit childish to rubbish him just because he's no longer with us. yes frustrated with his exit but still a talent.

{Ed025's Note - your wrong trev i have always been consistent where ross is concerned, bags of talent but has never grown up and has made some terrible life choices imo mate, as a wavertree lad myself i was desperate for him to do well, this is not sour grapes its an indictment of how fame and fortune have blighted his career and if he turns it around then no one will be happier than me, this is of course just my opinion and you are entitled to yours..

7.) 19 Oct 2018 18:57:50
I have always likened RB to Gazza. Like Gazza superb with the ball at his feet, like Gazza a potential game winner, like Gazza thick as two short planks. We are better off without him. I like what we have.

8.) 19 Oct 2018 19:41:56
His final pass and decision making let's him down. If and it's a big If, he can sort that part of his game he could be a very good player. Unfortunately they are two very hard traits to coach at the speed the prem is played at.
Those traits are the difference between good and great players.

9.) 20 Oct 2018 07:56:52
No one has said He's a bad player it was his attitude that let him down.

{Ed001's Note - personally I would say it is his terrible lifestyle, poor choice of friends and laziness in training that let him down. Ed025 might be a bit harsh on him, but he has a very good point, Barkley was all potential, potential that would never have been achieved at Everton as he was being overhyped and thought he was already great. He simply wasn't great and was exceedingly average but had the potential to be much better. I still do not see anything special about him.}

10.) 21 Oct 2018 08:20:12
Like I said may times in the past. he has ability and that ability has constantly been held back with injuries both severe and mild. He has only ever had one constant run of games and that was with Everton and he scored 8 goals that season and created loads for Lukaku. In my opinion he is a really great player. But as both Eds have said and I also said, he makes poor life choices and also is as dim as a 10 watt light bulb when opening his mouth. I think his call into the Chelsea first team and his inclusion in the England team that beat Spain in Spain shows exactly what ability he has. He has now scored a few goals in his last few games and also had a few assists. If he continues staying fit and stays working hard, he will show his ability. Perhaps the one decision he made that was a good decision was to leave Everton? I only say this because he had surrounded himself with bad advice and needed a fresh start. But he has since spoilt that decision with further comments about Everton FC. He has supposedly moved on so should do that and shut up about Everton.

{Ed025's Note - spot on degsy mate..

Ahh, good old Everton helping out a team in need of points with a few unforced errors that lead directly to goals.

Just a point on McCarthy.

He may not be everyone's favourite player and this is a site where we can air our views on players and our preferences. But when a player suffers an horrific injury like McCarthys whilst trying to prevent a goal scoring opportunity in the penalty box from midfield with no other defenders around closer than him. Could we please just show a little consideration for his service to the club and just wish him a speedy and successful return from injury.

He's an Everton player who was first to put his career on the line to ensure we didn't concede.

3.) 31 Aug 2018 16:02:41
Absolutely! I read comments about some players who have shown loyalty beyond belief that are just down right insulting! Terms like "dead wood". When a player slags a club off or can't wait to get away, I understand some fans frustration at the lack of respect shown by the said player. However, McCarthy is 100% as Toffee Ace says. Totally professional and never whinges nor says anything other than positive things. He should be treated with respect.

That’s right GB. I was thinking that when writing the post but didn’t add it in. Not sure why because it’s an excellent point you make mate.

Agree Degs. He’s only ever been a true pro.

{Ed025's Note - as you say ace a great pro, you never hear him whingeing when hes not in the side and even though i dont think hes the complete player i have a lot of respect for the guy mate..

7.) 31 Aug 2018 18:33:27
Cracking thrusting player McCarthy, Coleman likewise. For GB we have had many Teams in the past that have given their all every one of them. Players are professionals and I am absolutely sure that the Teams picked last season tried their best. What did happen was perhaps (I am guessing) the direction they received and confidence dropping (booing your own players at home does not help and to be honest quite deplorable. We either support the Team or we don't.

8.) 31 Aug 2018 18:38:15
I love him as a player and hope when he comes back he can stay injury free. This lad could do a very decent job with Silva managing him.
He's got a great engine in there.

The players yet to play are having a pre season as Silva said a few weeks back. So it’s no surprise that they haven’t featured yet and are also carrying a few injuries that are not likely to delay their debuts past the International break.
