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.

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.

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.

Don't worry about him mate he's gone now and he's messed up it's his loss not ours.

2.) 18 Oct 2018 14:43:27
He would still walk into our team? Yous are really mad 😂😂😂.

{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..



16 Sep 2018 20:19:06
Ahh, good old Everton helping out a team in need of points with a few unforced errors that lead directly to goals.

Charity begins at home they say.

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.

Toffee ace

1.) 31 Aug 2018 14:15:41
Great sentiments Toffee Ace. Let's hope he comes back with the same drive as Coleman did.

2.) 31 Aug 2018 15:49:57
Very well said a good player mate.

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.

4.) 31 Aug 2018 16:06:47
Cheers GB and Baz.

5.) 31 Aug 2018 16:23:14
I would go on to say Toffee Ace matethat if the rest of team had shown the same effort as Jimmy Mac last season we wouldn't have been in the same mess at the end.

6.) 31 Aug 2018 16:36:14
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.

9.) 31 Aug 2018 19:17:17
Totally agree ktf mate.

10.) 31 Aug 2018 18:18:12
totally agree Ed mate just a shame some some don't, I know it's a game of opinions but this guy gives his all.

{Ed025's Note - no arguments from me on that GB..



27 Aug 2018 07:19:13
Well if Silva truly wants to keep Lookman then surely he must be involved in the cup on Wednesday. Between loans and suspensions we have ample opportunity to play the lad now.

Toffee ace

1.) 27 Aug 2018 13:13:24
Thats the logic Toffee Ace the new lads (if fit) plus the up and coming knocking on first team squad youngsters.

2.) 28 Aug 2018 04:12:56
That's fine KTF


We want a couple of decent cup runs as well as league improvement. Silva knows waht he is doing and I'll leave it up to him to decide




18 Aug 2018 09:41:27
Predictions Blues?

I'm going for 3-1

Tosun 1-0
Siggi 2-0
Then they score 2-1
Richarlison 3-1 (as they pile forward for the equaliser we hit on the break)

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.

Ed002. Do you think it was more about RB not meeting the price tag or Silva not wanting to sell. It’s just that we have cover on the left and in the middle. We’re not in Europe so it looks a little puzzling to me.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - Lookman wants to leave and RBL want to buy him. I don’t think the money has been the issue, it seems to be no more than the club trying to persuade him that he is part of the plans and blocking any move. It is not the ideal situation.}

I don’t want him gone. He’s a goal scorer who just needs to find his rhythm. And let’s face it. Any striker who hasn’t proved himself in the prem will be as much of a gamble as was Tosun. So let’s not be too quick to offload this guy and end up gambling and getting someone worse.

It was good to see us attack when they lost a man. Remember that there are 2 ex Barcelona players working to be fit enough to make a debut. Now that’s no guarantee that they’ll be top players on this league. But to be fair to Marco, he’s picked a few good ones already. Can’t wait.

Drop Zouma. Not because of form but because he’s temporary. Put Mina in and let him settle with Keane that can then be the main partnership with the threat of Zouma to come in should form drop.

I agree with Ed. Silva wants competition for each position and injury cover. With Walcott injured, and let’s be honest, he hasn’t the best record of fitness throughout his career, we need cover on the right to balance the team and keep Theo on his toes.

The nice thing is that Theo is such a good pro that he would welcome the competition whilst still keeping a good attitude.
