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.}

1.) 06 Dec 2017 15:25:52
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.

Ok. Confession time. I've been looking at Bernard's clips on YouTube. I know I know, but have you seen this guy? He's mint!

I know he's only the size of a 2018 Snickers bar, but he's so tricky and can change direction like nothing I've seen. Really looking forward to seeing how this one gets on in the Prem.

Toffee ace

1.) 13 Aug 2018 20:25:33
If he brings half his game to Everton, we are in for good things.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 21:03:18
Hes also pretty strong for his size and puts himself about. I'm really interested where he's going to play.



12 Aug 2018 09:00:43
There comes a time when the balance between age and experience swings too far that it becomes a burden. I think we're at that point with Jags. What a servant he has been. Quick, clever, hard and most of all loyal.

But at some stage you become a target of the opposition because you're seen as the week link and I feel that time is now. If we go through this season with Jags starting then we are vulnerable.

I'm hoping that we get a new starting paring and use Jags from the bench to come on and give us the experience when games need managing in the last 10 minutes.

All good things come to an end.

Toffee ace

1.) 12 Aug 2018 22:35:17
For me Jags is 5th choice CB I’d let him go on loan to the Championship.



12 Aug 2018 07:31:27
That Wolves team is going to create problems for many teams with 11 men so I'm very satisfied that we were unbeaten yesterday. That will be a point gained on many teams that will go to wolves and get beat.

Toffee ace

1.) 12 Aug 2018 10:51:31
Amen to that. Teams will go there and underestimate them and get stuffed (hopefully) . With Jags going off, I look at that as a point gained.



10 Aug 2018 10:32:27
I'm not sure what made me happier yesterday, the quality signings or Phil Thompson's face. You could reach out and touch his disappointment it was that obvious. Unlucky Phil, for once your pals at sky were forced to talk about us rather than them over the road and you couldn't take it.

More importantly now is the need to back the manager, Moshiri clearly has. So let's do our part. We've got a few new players that need to understand that on our day we can be the best supporters in the land.

Better not Bitter.

Toffee ace

{Ed0333's Note - I’m sure Phil Thompson was bereft at the fact liverpool didn’t sign Gomes, Bernard and Mina. He’ll just have to do with the 2nd most expensive keeper on the planet, Naby Keita, Shaqiri and Fabinho. Wipe your tears Phil.

1.) 10 Aug 2018 10:41:49
LFC continuing there record of being the highest spenders in PL never to win it. Shaqiri - do me a favour! Comical signing of the season - he is a shocker!

2.) 10 Aug 2018 11:12:35
Snobs I think you will find that according to sky pundits getting Shaqiri was a master stroke and will probably turn out to be the signing of the season.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 11:25:39
He will definitely slow them down, waddling down the wing.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 11:28:31
signing of the season - are you mad? He won’t even start most games!

He’s not even LFC best signing - surely that’s got to be the keeper - 1st keeper they have had since Reyna.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 12:25:21
Just quoting what the pundits said.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 12:37:05

No probs, I fell of my chair, I was laughing so much when the said it.

9.) 10 Aug 2018 14:03:29
Signing of the season? So he is going to dislodge the likes of Mane and Salah? He will be a sqaud player, he might be a good one but a squad player non he less. I would bet my left (again) that he isn't the best signing.

10.) 10 Aug 2018 15:54:41
Shaqiri more like Shakira "fat hips don't lie"

11.) 10 Aug 2018 11:44:56
Great reply Ed0333, and I agree with the quality of your signings. It’s just a shame Phil Thompson has never had the class to let his knowledge of the game transcend his ire for our great football club.

{Ed0333's Note - Phil Thompson is actually a really nice guy mate and oozes class. I don’t watch sky sports on match day as I don’t live in the UK but if he does denigrate Everton I’m sure he does it in a laddish, jocular way and no I’ll will is meant on his behalf. He has family and friends that are Everton supporters so he joshes for the camera. It just makes good television.

12.) 10 Aug 2018 19:13:25
Shaqiri is just a hobbit Mirrallas.

13.) 10 Aug 2018 19:14:16
Are these the same pundits who said Everton ruined the transfer window by slightly overpaying for Richarlison ignoring the fact that 2 teams wildly overpaid for goalkeepers?

14.) 10 Aug 2018 17:51:34
"I don't live in the UK" - I knew you were a Liverpool fan ED. 😂

Only kidding. I agree about Phil. I've met him a couple of times at functions and he's a good laugh and loves a good bit of banter. Still a twonk though for us blues. 😁😉.

{Ed0333's Note - lol. Made me chuckle that



09 Aug 2018 16:40:14
Am I dreaming? Are we going to sign 4 players? Bernard, Mina, Gomez and Zouma. Wow, what a deadline day this will be if all these happen.

You can’t buy a shirt in JJB for two reasons. Firstly we use Kitbag which means online and clubshop only with the exception of a few authorised retail concessions. Secondly JJB went under about 4 years ago.

The Kitbag deal runs out next year unless it’s renewed. I’m guessing that as this was an agreement prior to Moshiri investment then its renewal won’t happen, fingers crossed. Then hopefully you’ll be able to buy an Everton shirt in any Sports Direct up and down the country.

If we didn’t get 3 points on Saturday I will be my normal self after a loss, pretty inconsolable. As for expectations, I’d be happy with 7th and a gap between us and 8th. With a smaller gap to 6th. With some exciting football to watch each week along the way would be a great season for me.

Possibly one of the centre backs either starting or on the bench with Jags suspended. Not sure how long he is suspended for though.
