Ed, do you think Chelsea would do business on a permanent Zouma deal, or are they just loaning him until the time is right to use him?

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - At the moment it is a straight loan and given they are in the process of making changes at CB by next season he would likely end up as cover. If he were to ask to leave and decide on Everton as his next destination, then Everton need to make a proposal to Chelsea about buying him at the end of his loan in the summer. If the player wants to leave and the proposed deal satisfies all parties, then it may be an option - but there is some interest from elsewhere.}

Great info. Thanks Ed002.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 21:43:43
Pity about interest from elsewhere but I have to say not surprising. I knew the lad was a good player having watched him and then for us. I particularly like his runs out of defence. Seems to me our loans (apart from Digne) are were our best business.



07 Aug 2018 13:04:38
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.

Toffee ace

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

1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:16:57
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.}

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.

Well put ST. We took 9 points off top 6 teams in 3 games end of season without conceding a goal. Man utd didn't even have 1 shot in target til the 85th minute. We can beat anyone on our day, home or away, as other players in football clubs will believe.

I pay for BT and Sky for sport but thast is it. Due to some disability cannot stand in pubs to watch matches, and do not go every week anymore.
I am sure many will share my view I am sure.



09 Jun 2019 18:00:38
Well you have to give credit to Jordan Pickford. I was very confident that he would save at least 1 penalty. And as long as he can keep doing that then England will continue to shake this monkey off their backs that is penalty shootouts.

Toffee ace

1.) 09 Jun 2019 20:49:45
Totally agree TA i think Pickford has that belief he has a penalty save in him and takes a good one as well 😉
Unfortunately Stones still has that potential for a costly error in him 🤦🏻‍♂️.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 21:15:49
I agree Ace. Pickford is the most confident keeper England have had in many years.
Not just because he's a blue but I always have an unusual confidence in him when playing for England (unusual in that previous keepers always make you feel on edge) and in penalty situations you always believe that he'll save at least one. and generally does.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 01:09:15
I know what you mean, Trev. I think the last England keeper that I had confidence in when facing a penalty was Seaman.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 20:15:35
We need a decent penalty taker, why not Pickford?

5.) 11 Jun 2019 11:56:26
DC - if the penalty is saved then we would be screwed with no one back in our goal. But in a penalty shoot out he looks a good bet for one 👍.

6.) 11 Jun 2019 13:36:39
Aren't they changing the rules on penalties next season whereby if one is taken, the ball is dead whether it goes in or is saved?

Although I guess a keeper like Ederson would score from the resulting goal kick.

Talk of rewarding some under 23s players with a game today. Not sure on that as there's still a possibility of dropping a place if we lose and Leicester win. That's £2 million in lost prize money. With 8th still to play for I think we need to put our strongest available side out against Spurs.

I'm not against them being selected, as long as they are the best options to get us the win.

25 Apr 2019 06:53:54
I have to say, top six doesn't look as difficult to break into now as it did mid season. Take for instance,

Man Utd. They are in trouble. More trouble than OGS can fix yet they will have to stick with him. They need a clear out and that means transition which will make them very beatable next season. Don't expect them to be pushing for CL, which could mean that they are reachable.

Arsenal. Unless they buy a top class defender and a warrior of a midfielder then it's same old arsenal and that means they will be reachable too

Chelsea. Ok, they will definitely be changing manager but also losing Hazard. They will not be able to replace him so whoever takes over will have problems from the start.

Spurs. Just don't know what kind of a window they will have. They are quality and battered us this season, but we were awful and a different team. It'll be interesting how we do on the final day of the season against them.

City and them are out on their own, but why can't we have a say in who gets 3rd - 6th.

After seeing us roundly beat 3 of the top six recently and with the summer tweaks to the squad in place, I see no reason why we can't get amongst them if we can continue to make Goodison a fortress and eliminate games like Fulham and Newcastle. I'm gutted there's only 3 games left but looking forward to a productive summer and hopefully continue this form into next season.

Toffee ace

1.) 25 Apr 2019 10:14:51
Toffee Ace - Agree. It's going to be a very interesting season next season. Liverpool and City will be challenging again, and if Spurs can keep hold of their stars then they will be up there too.

Utd will throw money at the problem - then it's up to Ole to make it click. Arsenal will improve under Emery as he builds his team and Chelsea have the transfer ban to deal with.

With any luck we can capitalise on a slip - but you would put us in a group alongside Leicester and Wolves as the teams to take advantage. Wolves look best placed right now if we're honest. And dare I say whoever doesn't finish 7th (and get Europa) this season may have the best chance next.

But we shouldn't kid ourselves how far away we are. Even with the great wins we are 15 points behind the top 6. I'm a fan of Silva and Brands and think we are heading in a positive direction, but let's focus on improving and continuing to build a young exciting team - if we do that then who knows what can happen.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 13:00:27
While I like your optimism I don’t think we should be getting carried away.

2 of our better players this season are on loan (gomes and Zouma) if we don’t sign these we then have to find suitable replacements. Then Keane has to develop a new centre back partnership which will take time.

Richarlison is allegedly being watched by the big fish so if we lose him again need to replace which won’t be easy.

You’ve also not mentioned wolves, have performed really well this season and have secured jiminez on a permanent deal and will probably strengthen in the summer.

If we can keep our current starting 11 and add a few extra quality additions then top 6 is achievable, however we have to keep Richarlison and sign Gomes and Zouma to give us the vest chance.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 17:27:17
I don’t think Richarlison will go this year but we won’t keep him forever. I will be surprised if we don’t get Gomez as he seems a decent sort that would stick around if we struck a deal with Barcelona although I know how interfering agents can be. Now Zouma is different. With Chelsea being banned from making signings, even if they were willing it would definitely be premium. And the player is also playing his cards close to his chest.

My optimism is based on this corner we seemed to have turned verses the troubles that the teams above us are having.

Regarding wolves. I don’t deny they are a tidy outfit, but second season will be different and teams will not be surprised by them as they have been this season. But you’re right, they are amongst us too.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 20:00:57
Wolves could very well struggle but if they do some good business then they could sustain.
They have a small squad and 1 or 2 injuries to their better players could see them do a Bournemouth.

Leicester Will be an interesting one. How much will they give Brenda.

Watford will have to spend some money and keep hold of Doucore to compete.

West Ham will no doubt spend big, but as usual it will be on over the hill injury prone half decent players. I see them maybe around 8th - 13th somewhere.

And of course there will be one surprise package as usual but it's anyone's guess who that could be.

Personally, if we can tie up Gomes and Zouma I wouldn't want to be bringing too many more in. Maybe improved competition for Dom, Coleman and Siggy. Bring back Holgate and hopefully Onyekuru.

Ship out Lookman (only for money purposes) , Besic, Vlasic, Dowell, Martina, mirallas, Bolasie and possibly Sandro, although I think he could get back to his best under Silva.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 21:50:26
Consistency is the key word. In some games we have been quite brilliant but in others absolutely non existent as a team. We do look good going forwards at times but there was a period where we gave away so many set pieces and then defended them like a relegation team. I am happy Silva has sorted some sort of passing game again. We look like a great team at times. We now need to sort defending and whilst clean sheets are important I agree DCL has great potential he has not yet added goals to his game. Hopefully he will soon. One thing is that we are going in the right direction again. We may end up lower than last season but that does not bother me. As long as we continue to gel better we will become a good team.

The process is very difficult to understand and even if the required points can be accumulated the application can still be turned down. Genuinely, after reading up on it, I can safely say I’m no better off for trying to understand it.

We won’t be paying £30m either. There’s some negotiating to be done so expect a different figure announced if the deal gets done. If other interested parties have dropped out then we are in a better position to negotiate.

This is very much like the Mina transfer last season where Brands made the offer and waited. I guess he has a good poker face in these negotiations.

There are two encouraging points to this story. First, it sounds ridiculous and second, the source.

We will not be selling our best player this summer. And by the way, the interview that the star sourced their story from also had Digne stating that he is very happy at Everton. But of course that silly little comic doesn’t deal in facts.

We have brilliant players who stupid tabloids will need to add to their transfer story telling top six love in.
