Just read a story claiming Chelsea want Tom Davies what to you think the likelyhood of this happening?

1.) 25 Jul 2017 12:02:13
Better going for Neymars buy out as would be cheaper option mate.

2.) 25 Jul 2017 13:45:21
there is no way chelsea are after tom for this season if this is true they see him as a player for the future his career would go backwards if he left us now. imo he is in a progressive side his ambition has to be get in the first team and get a regular starting birth then go from there onwards and upwards so he is exactly where he needs to be. altho there is the story that stoke will pay 25 mill for the ox i guess this means he has said no to chelsea so they maybe after another english player who knows. what a joke the ox 25 gylfi 50 i know who i would rather buy.

3.) 25 Jul 2017 13:56:43
I' bet there are lots of clubs who would "want" several of our players - just as there are other clubs' players we "want". It has always been so. The difference these days is that we have money to keep our best players and we can afford to recruit quality players.

4.) 25 Jul 2017 15:04:52
Im curious floats I could be wrong but by that post your claiming you'd rather have Ox over Sig. this is a and of opinions mate, just wondering why gives u that conclusion u would take the ox over GS. Regarding assists goals minutes played injuries etc.

Or have I took your post the wrong way haha.

Everton the gear.

5.) 25 Jul 2017 15:37:12
your a little off on the queen's their mate, but if i understand you then an obvious answer is he is an all round better player in my opinion anything i post is my opinion unless i state it as a fact. i am in my fifties and probs move in different circles to you but if ox goes to stoke that would be a sin imo why are we not after such a well rounded mid player when we are willing to pay so much for a player who's statistics say he is quite one dimensional. futher more people seem to have forgotten that gylfi has had a chance to be in atop 4 team and wasn't good enough for poch' but he is good enough for efc fans that can't see past what they want. i am a born and bred efc fan and in no way is sigurdsson better than the ox who can play anywhere in the middle and if your asking me is gylfi worth this kind of investment in my opinion no he isn't but ox is because he is versatile pacey tricky and gets back and defends. so many efc fans are so prepared to over look gylfi's short comings to get him which we obviously will let's revisit this at the end of the season see who is right and who is wrong.

6.) 25 Jul 2017 16:03:12
id have the ox but not at the expense of gylfi he stat our way beyond the ox, the ox has not move on in the last few year gylfi is one of the best attack midfield in the league.

7.) 25 Jul 2017 16:46:35
Don't understand the point that Gylfi couldn't make it in a top 4 team when the comparison is Oxlaid chamberlain who can't get regular football in a top six team. I have seen plenty of Gylfi over the past few seasons and he is far from one dimensional. He has played all across the middle and up top. No surprise that he covered so much ground last season.

I agree the fee is shocking. But that's a money matter that I'm not concerned about as there are people employed by the club to make that judgement. I think he's a very good player who will contribute to goals, assists and will offer us a real threat from dead ball situations.

If oxlaid chamberlain was on the pitch enough to compare with those stats then we could drill down deeper to compare, but he wasn't so we'll never know.

8.) 25 Jul 2017 17:04:28
Floats. the way you keep saying minus sigurdsson deadballs his stats aren't the best. I think your missing the fact that deadballs are a massive part of a game of football and it would be of great benifit to Everton to have someone so good at deadballs.

9.) 25 Jul 2017 17:38:11
Isn't baines top notch at dead balls.

10.) 25 Jul 2017 18:20:21
David Beckham say no more.

11.) 25 Jul 2017 21:58:42
Floats I know football is a game of opinion, but you need a reality check. Sigs is far better than the overrated OX! . Sigs had carried the Swans for a number of seasons and is far more creative than OX. I remember Chelsea fans not rating Lampard and we know how that turned out.

12.) 25 Jul 2017 22:20:19
Completely agree floats it's a game of opinion an wasn't being patronising in any way I was curious on your opinion to why ox would be a better player than sig.

In my opinion Ox is a very exciting player but I don't really know his position an I don't think he does either is he a CM or a winger I'm not sure

But again "in my opinion" he is no where near the quality of GS. He's quick tricky like u say but for me not in the same league of individual quality of GS.

Also I don't think any ones age has much to do with comparing two modern day era players.

Was just after a general insight to see if u had good points that I hadn't thought of to why Ox would be a better choice than Sig.

Everton the gear.

13.) 25 Jul 2017 23:28:21
Couldn't be bothered even reading that. SIG ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.



07 Jul 2017 14:32:07
Just read Lukaku was supposed to be back at Finch Farm yesterday but stayed in L. A and is ignoring Koeman's Phone Calls.
If this is true I wish we could cancel his transfer and throw him in the reserves for a year. I know that's never going to happen due to the huge transfer fee but it must have crossed their minds.

1.) 07 Jul 2017 15:07:54
I'll take the 90 million instead thanks.

2.) 07 Jul 2017 15:18:31
Fine the guy for not reporting back and donate the fine to Everton in the Community.

{Ed025's Note - good idea baz..

3.) 07 Jul 2017 15:44:40
Great idea.

4.) 07 Jul 2017 18:37:47
Probably done us a favour, given us a good precident to fine him, couple of weeks wages in fines actually will add up, he's gone anyway, who cares if it pisses him off. What's he on 70k? .

5.) 07 Jul 2017 19:44:44
Sticking points
EFC not moving. We want
75m upfront
Itd to pay agents fees/ loyalty bonus
Add ons not yet agreed.

6.) 07 Jul 2017 21:44:32
i doubt returning to finch farm for lukaku is the same as efc players returning he hasn't been an efc player for a while. (in his mind at least ) he has probs been told by the club not to bother the circus surrounding him at the mo would be a distraction. makes me wonder if ross is traning with the u23 where imo he belongs no space for players who don't want to be there also better for the player as well altho the bidding war that has broken out is great for us so excited to see who we end up with as his replacement. coyb.

7.) 07 Jul 2017 22:27:40
Don't know why you guys are actually surprised by this behaviour, the fella is a self centred arrogant person, not even going to moan about him, I wanted him gone last summer so we could have moved on from the whole circus surrounding him. The fella scores goals that I can't dispute, but that is it, he isn't a modern forward, he doesn't change games single handedly, has a poor first touch, was in the bottom 3 players in the league last season for pass completion, covered less ground than 35 year old Ibrahimovic and made less sprints than Ibrahimovic, we all know as Evertonians who have watched our play be adapted to his strengths and also how he has gone missing in big games against big strong class defenders, if we get £75m we will be the winners in the deal as we will have sold a disrespectful player for a handsome profit.
Remember we are Everton and we will always be bigger than any player.



15 Jun 2017 23:58:20
Ok now I'm just confused, Pickford has been confirmed as signed by Everton there's a picture of him on the website with an Everton shirt on signing his contract. It was my understanding the window doesn't open until 1st July but my knowledge is based around what I hear in the media so I'm probably wrong.

1.) 16 Jun 2017 01:50:42
Was thinking the same thing mate but apparently England's transfer window opened 9th June, don't understand why that hasn't been made more clear?

2.) 16 Jun 2017 06:00:37
The registration process side of things doesn't open until 1st July. So they can sign but won't be officially a player until then. Hope it clears it up.



10 Apr 2017 19:18:01
Just read that Milan are in talks with Barcelona to sign Deulofeu. I assume they are expecting Barcelona to exercise their buy back option but I thought that option also included a clause that they had to keep him for 12 months before selling him to any one else? now its quite possible I might have dreamed that last bit does anyone know anything about this?

1.) 10 Apr 2017 21:28:00
If you dreamt it Al so did I. I think that is the case.

2.) 10 Apr 2017 21:20:02
Would imagine they can buy him, loan him to Milan for 12 months with a deal at the end of the loan. Barcelona can make a few million and Milan save a bit. Agents and clubs can get round any clause these days.

3.) 10 Apr 2017 21:40:35
I think If he goes back he can't be sold or loaned for a season. He has to be in the first team scenario at Barcelona.

4.) 10 Apr 2017 23:50:55
Bobby Brown shoes mentioned this a few weeks ago, fair play Martinez made it clear to insert a buy back clause and to include if bought back he cannot be sold on until the following year, as far as I am aware he cannot be loaned out, he has to remain with Barca
for a season.

5.) 10 Apr 2017 22:57:55
Actually I did a google search and they were direct quotes from Martinez apparently if Barcelona buy him back we will be due 12 mill (euros) and they have to have him in their first team squad for 12 months before they can resell him other wise we are due a big percentage of any fee they recieve for him. not a bad deal if true but RM did live in fantasy land so who knows.

6.) 11 Apr 2017 01:33:22
Surely Milan have to deal with Everton as the player Ian contracted to us regardless of the buyback option? Surely the buyback option is if a club wants to but him Barcelona have the choice to buy him first, if they don't want too then we are free to negotiate with the prospective buyer. I don't know the ons and outs but I just think from the way it is worded this would be the case.

7.) 11 Apr 2017 02:02:03
According to the agreement, Barcelona cannot re-sign Deulofeu in the January transfer window and, if they decide to activate the clause, cannot sell him on until he has spent at least a season in their first-team squad.

Everton had first right of refusal if the Catalan club decided to sell him and would receive a percentage of any fee if he was sold to another club, Martinez said.

Good deal if true as he is surplus to requirements at Everton, yet both AC and Juve want him in Italy so both is and Barcelona can reach an agreement whereas we both make a bit of dosh.



31 Mar 2017 11:15:16
I think we may see a huge benefit in not playing Jags for a large part of this season now that Funes Mori looks to be out for the rest of the season too, jags is going to have much more left in the tank now he's going to be needed for the last 9 games. I'd play Holgate at RB cos the lad does get forward at times not like coleman of course.

1.) 31 Mar 2017 12:23:18
Think Holgate will play in a back three.

2.) 31 Mar 2017 13:01:03
There's always Pennington. Centre half or right back.

3.) 01 Apr 2017 03:39:44
Jonjo Kenny also.

The ball is rolling blues, 1st trophy of the season in the bag. Everton under 19's just won the Generali CEE Cup beating Burnley 3-1 well done Lads.



23 Jul 2017 05:21:25
I was wondering ed25 is Rooneys performances convincing you he might not be such a bad signing? not having a dig just would like to hear your thoughts?

{Ed025's Note - he has done ok so far AL and im sure he will do well for us, my main concerns have always been about the fact it that it could stop a younger player getting a chance mate..

1.) 23 Jul 2017 14:00:53
Fair point ed but my opinion is that all the younger players that play in his position will benefit greatly from training with someone with his experience and even some of the older ones will too. On a different note hasn't Gareth Barry done well in the games he's played so far, I'm quite pleased we are keeping him around.

{Ed025's Note - the old guard seem to be doing the business AL...maybe there is hope for us yet mate.. :)



17 Jul 2017 03:03:14
Can anyone tell me if Sandro, Holgate and Pickford are going on the Netherlands tour or are they still on Holiday?

1.) 17 Jul 2017 08:19:49
Those who played in under 21s will be on the tour to Holland and Belgium.

2.) 17 Jul 2017 13:48:46
Cheers TC looking forward to seeing them in a blue (or grey) shirt.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 13:49:25
Sorry ToffeeAce don't know what happened there.

15 Jul 2017 16:29:55
Hi guys,
Just been looking at the impact Lukaku's goals had on our season, this doesn't include his assits
In the 10 games we drew last year he scored a goal in 2 of them saving us 2 points
in the games we won we would have lost 1 drew 2 saving us a further 7 pts
this is very a very simplistic way of looking at the way his goals affected the results and as I said doesn't include his assists but on the whole his goals might not be as difficult to replace as it looks on paper.

1.) 15 Jul 2017 16:54:11
Without his goals we would have still finished seventh, seen this stat a few weeks ago.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 18:32:01
Without his goals then we would have been without him and would have had someone else in his place. How many they would have scored and what effect they would have had on the points total would be anyones guess, but what we are certain of is we will find out this season.

3.) 15 Jul 2017 20:13:17
May have finished higher than 7th with a different striker netting in the close games.

4.) 16 Jul 2017 08:23:08
You guys don't sound bitter.

{Ed025's Note - you seem a bit obsessed with everton rovercaustic, maybe its time you came out the closet mate and admitted your an admirer...buy yourself a blue shirt..you know you want to..

5.) 16 Jul 2017 10:35:03
The dynamics seem different without Lukaku and don't look focused on an individual.

Whether it will be more successful we'll see but I prefer the burden shared around the squad rather than 1 or 2.

6.) 16 Jul 2017 12:28:28
Got to remember that when he takes a chance at 0-0 v city puts us 1up with a fantastic first time finish puts you in the way to the win, it may not be the winning goal but vital in the end result and the game taking shape, stats stats stats, too much of it analysed, let's be be bigger and better than RL and move on, he's got clear weaknesses and is a great goalscorer, how good he becomes is no longer an interest to me, I'm interested in Rooney, Sandro, Klaasen etc and giving them. my full support.

{Ed025's Note - me too mate..

7.) 16 Jul 2017 13:02:58
Don't get bogged down with stats like that as I don't for one minute believe that if Lukaku was not there last season we would of finished 7th, I know stats don't lie but it's just coincidence that his 24 goals did not have same impact as Kane's, you only look at that now he has left. He's gone and we're moving forward and we don't have to play a game that are to Lukaku strengths, Sandro will be a right handful bit like costa is he will run and stretch defenders so I think we will play very different to what we have seen for while.



14 Jul 2017 18:45:43
Does anyone know what the situation is with a player playing the Champs League qualifier and then being sold to a club in the Europa League. Are they ineligable to play in the europa league. I ask due to our links to Dembele at Celtic who has played today in the Champs League Qualifier.

{Ed025's Note - its a good question AL, i dont know the answer mate but i will ask ED002 and get back to you mate..

I'd take a fit Theo Walcott any day of the week. Problem with that sentence is the FIT part but he did score 19 goals last year even with his injuries so.

I think Rooney thrives when he has the supporters behind him. Critzism does affect him. I remember him walking off the picth complaining to the camera, fans were booing the team. So for the good of the team we would be wise to give him our full support when he steps out at Goodison on the 12th.

05 Jul 2017 00:13:02
I can see what you mean about Rooney being past his best but even though we are moving forward, if Rooney was still at his best we would still not be at a level to sign him the fact he is declining is what has given us the opportunity to get him which was the same with Barry. I believe he will bring an extra level of experience in those forward positions and it won't hurt our shirt sales either.

{Ed025's Note - im sure RK will take no notice of my views anyway AL, if it happens it happens mate and i will support him the same as anyone who dons the shirt, its fine to have different views on things mate..

Brian I agree he probably isn't a 90 minute player anymore but he played 29 times for Arsenal scoring 16 goals 19 of those 29 were as substitute. we would have finished top 4 last year if we had someone coming of the bench and adding 16 more goal. that's just my opinion.

I think you will find the premier league starts on 11th August which for all 43 years of my life isn't one week after 23rd July. I assume you are talking about the european game on thursday which hardly qualifies.

Their season also starts next week so are much further along in their season preparations, when 12 August comes around I'm confident we will be much better.

I'm not sure he will start Pickford or Sandro as they have had no game time with the rest of the squad although they might play on Saturday I would assume RK will think Stekelenburg is good enough against this opposition in the 3rd qualifying round and may start Mirallas, Rooney and Klassen the front 3 with the option of introducing Sandro in the second half.
Just my take on it.
