Look an confirmed. 4.5 year deal.

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.

{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.

Jimmy Mac in talks with Sunderland and also palace and West Brom. According to SSN.

1.) 31 Aug 2016 18:14:07
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.

NSNO reporting that Brahimi is on his way. Quite a reliable site so fingers crossed.

Really hope so and a few others.


2.) 31 Aug 2016 17:10:56
That report's a day old at least Toffee Ace. Just another site making guesses.


3.) 31 Aug 2016 17:20:09
Sorry, there is an updated report saying the same thing. let's wait. and hope.


4.) 31 Aug 2016 17:35:37
I'll take anything right now Brian I'm getting a bit nervous 😩.


 

 

31 Aug 2016 16:56:29
Jack Wiltshire is on his way to Bournemouth. Thank goodness because I'm fed up with hearing about this pointless transfer. Maybe now SSN will focus on some transfer news and shake off their arsenal obsession.

I think it's time for a dose of realism.

Lukaku is the best striker in the world playing outside of regular CL football. This cannot and will not continue. We have a job on our hands to get into the CL this season and let's be honest having played more games than the rest with the exception of Liverpool and still being 7th it's very unlikely that we will qualify. Even if we did he will still jump at the chance of playing for Chelsea if they came in for him, and that's fair enough.

It'll be a gamble keeping him this summer if he doesn't sign a new contract and he is saying now that his mind is made up.

So the best thing in my opinion is get the very best deal for him as soon as we can so that we can move on without the player.

Lukaku will leave us, that's for sure. We just need to be wise about the timing. It's a shame I know but I feel it's reality.

Toffee ace

1.) 24 Mar 2017 19:39:36
International break expect the Lukaku press bonding again.


2.) 24 Mar 2017 19:48:34
I think I disagree to be honest. Keep him for this season and see what he does for us next year. As he says over and over, he us ambitious and will continue to show his talent rather than sulk. Who knows, he may get us into CL next year depending on our clubs ambition and who we get in in the summer. With 1 or 2 years remaining on a contract, he won't go for cheap either way providing he's continuing to show the goods and score the goals.


3.) 24 Mar 2017 21:51:18
We won't get as much with 1 year left Kingo. He says he's made his mind up and won't be signing. I'd love to keep him but at some stage we will have to stick or twist on this one.


4.) 24 Mar 2017 22:25:58
Or keep him for the next two seasons and let him go for free. Insane? Not really, yes we would potentially be losing a possible 80m+, but if we keep him and his goals, and build around him then in two years we might make Champions league. Which would make 80m small potatoes. It's a gamble but could well be worth it. Some may say what if he downs tools and plays poorly. Can't see that myself as its only two seasons, and if he is adamant he needs to be playing for a "big club" then he can't afford to let his standards drop. Just a thought really.


 

 

01 Mar 2017 21:10:27
Great! Luis Enrique will step down at the end of the season. The press ain't going to leave us alone now are they. Every interview between now and when they appoint a head coach will be Koeman to Barcelona.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - I dealt with this weeks ago on the Barcelona page.}


1.) 01 Mar 2017 21:17:24
Koeman is not their 1st choice so do not panic just yet. Another point worth mentioning is managers like to keep their jobs and Everton have a reputation for giving managers time something which cannot be said for Barcelona. Koeman will have plenty more chances to manage Barcelona but I honestly think he left Southampton for us because he bought into the project.


2.) 02 Mar 2017 08:21:21
Cheer up mate R K has already said he is with Everton for the project, there will be news of a new stadium shortly and now we have Mr Moshiri on board, also R K is putting together a great team and I reckon the final pieces of this jigsaw will be done in the summer, chin up mate he's not going anywhere apart from up the table with us, GuernseyBlue.


3.) 02 Mar 2017 10:44:01
think you missed what toffeeace was saying. it wasn't Koeman is going it was that from now until Barcelona appoint a new manager, the media will ask him the question at every press conference and even if he says he is staying they will just report he is willing to leave typical press.

Leicester have sacked their championship winning manager.

This is so embarrassing I don't know where to look. I've just watched a montage of his moments last season on SSN and I just don't know what to say. The man performed the impossible and gets treated as if he's a perennial loser.

Leicester should hang their heads in shame. I'm gutted for him.

Toffee ace

1.) 24 Feb 2017 09:28:29
Agree Toffee Ace. Still in the champions league and above the relegation places, Ranieri should have got the rest of the season to save them at least.


2.) 24 Feb 2017 15:29:16
I'm afraid footballs a business and the money now. if Leicester were to go down, there's too much dosh to be lost for the club and as certain sections of the team had not been fully committed to Ranieris methods this season there was no alternative for the directors of the club but to remove him to get the team functioning and getting points on the board again.


3.) 24 Feb 2017 16:24:33
Sounds familiar!


4.) 24 Feb 2017 18:33:24
Two words. Player power.

Happening at all clubs nowadays. to chat to owner behind managers back.


5.) 24 Feb 2017 18:48:56
The team they have is not much better than any of the bottom 6. Once Kante went it was always going to be tough, Vardy should have gone to Arsenal. it is no surprise no one put in big bids for their top players like Marhez and Drinkwater as they wouldn't get in the team of a top 6 club.
It will be interesting to see what is achieved by whoever comes in. Let's hope there is at least a bit of an upturn for their next game against the reds.


6.) 24 Feb 2017 18:53:11
Hope they go down now. Absolute disgrace, players should hang there heads in shame.


 

 

12 Feb 2017 07:43:16
Ok, not 3 points but a very useful draw. Defence and GK doing their jobs well to keep a clean sheet. Borough might not score many but they had a few chances that Robles needed to save.

We're unbeaten still this year in the league and still have momentum. Koeman said he was pleased with the point and that's good enough for me.

Toffee ace

1.) 12 Feb 2017 11:28:48
Fair result mate but I reckon Funes Mori was a bit iffy at times, the lads worked hard for that result tough team away from home, GuernseyBlue.

The worst thing about going out of the cup in the third round is that this weekend everyone seems to be playing except us. BORED!

Toffee ace

1.) 28 Jan 2017 09:39:52
I'm adopting Sutton Toffee. I usually adopt a team from the lower leagues to support in the FA or of one beats us continue supporting them.

I've done it from the Woking days. We beat them 1 nil but our support on the day was brlliant cheering them on instead of the blues.

Their crowd had a mixture of previous teams they'd beaten including west brom supporters and they were brilliant.

I don't care what people say it's the best competition in world to me. Come on Sutton!


2.) 28 Jan 2017 11:19:04
Agree BJU, I'm following Oxford mate young Ledson playing for them now. Always thought he would become another Barkley for us, but for one reason or another it just didn't happen.
Still big game today against Newcaste, so let's see how he does. Team coming off a good win at Rochdale, were Ryan scored. So fingers crossed.


3.) 28 Jan 2017 12:08:08
Yeah fair enough BJU. But I'm sorry Woburn, I could never cheer on oxford for two very good reasons. Ray Houghton played for them and that red gets right on my nerves. And they beat us 1-0 in 86 which then led to them over the road to winning the league Arrrrrrhhhhhh!

But I'll try the idea you both have to help cure my boredom this weekend.


4.) 28 Jan 2017 13:39:31
Ha fair enough Toffee ace. I nominate Wolves for you mate. Can't remember who they are playing, but at least it will pass your Saturday fix mate.


5.) 28 Jan 2017 14:35:38
Woburn. I'm liking your nomination mate. I'm off to Wembley and the RS aren't! Wooohooo!


6.) 28 Jan 2017 17:09:49
Well done Oxford. Lincoln have the result of the day though. What a performance.


7.) 29 Jan 2017 11:03:27
The Liverpool result made my day lol


8.) 29 Jan 2017 12:26:47
Toffee ace, just wish I had done both in a double, now that would have been a nice little earner.


9.) 29 Jan 2017 12:37:44
Well that's Wolves and Oxford through, just need Sutton to win and we've got a full house. 👍

There's certainly something there with Robles BT and you're right, he is young and will improve. What I like is the fact that it doesn't matter to Koeman whether it's his signing or a previous managers one, as in the case of Robles, if your playing well your in. Even if that is at the expense of one of his own signings.

This manager will do what it takes to win.

I can't see what benefits there are to owning the new ground tbh. We aren't in a position to buy it so a deal is being arranged for us by the LCC. Man City for all their wealth rent theirs from the council doesn't seem to bother them so I don't care who owns it as long as it's as intimidating as the old lady, which let's be fair will be down to us to sort.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - The rent will be at the level where Everton will eventually pay the complete cost of the stadium so I would expect the club and the council to reach agreement over the transfer of the ownership. THis will become clearer when the finances are sorted out and Everton are in a decent position financially.}

We owe Moshiri because he paid off our debt interest free. This paved the way for us to go ahead with our desperately needed stadium project. FFP prevents Moshiri just handing over his cash so an interest free loan is the only way he could help us without being sanctioned, which could still happen if we get intoEurope as we will come under FIFA scrutiny.

Where do you think £300 million is going to come from? Staying at Goodison means we will never generate big club income. Moving to a new one will.

This is a shrewd plan made by a Billionaire accountant. Surely that deserves a little trust from us fans.

It's very well explained in the Echo. The LCC have a much better credit rating than EFC and therefore have borrowed the money the we couldn't or at least couldn't have gotten as good a deal from the lenders. A business then has been set up to take care of ensuring that we keep up payments with various security measures in place to protect the LCC interest. The LCC have certainly aided EFC and must be recognised for their effort to make the whole project get off the ground. We failed to generate 30millon for the kingsdock project, yet this time we are on course to deliver a stadium that is 10 times more in cost to us. So the LCC have played a major role in helping us to get this one off the ground.

To be fair there are examples in the premier league where clubs have benefited from stadiums built for different purposes e. g. Man City and West Ham. We will need help too and whilst different in circumstances it appears we will be cap in hand too.

Skilful, very hard working and coveted by the rest. That makes him an Everton Great in my books. My one wish is that he comes back and wins some silverware with us as Captain, lifting it first.
