This might have been posted already but the game against Hadjuk Split tonight is live on ITV4.



25 Jul 2017 11:49:22
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.

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.

Just seen the Europa League tie Atalanta V Everton will be shown on BT Sports Showcase which is Free to air.

Why does "England Manager, Gareth Southgate" still not sound right I thought I would have got used to it by now.

1.) 24 Aug 2017 15:29:25
He does not impress me at all.



18 Aug 2017 15:59:22
Eds are Everton likely to face punishment for last night crows trouble Even though it was exclusively hajduk fans perpetuating the violence and the stewards were excellent in controlling the outbreak. Not sure what EFC as a club could have done better.

{Ed002's Note - They are on the charge list so it is possible.}

1.) 18 Aug 2017 17:42:28
Everton have been charged with throwing objects mate.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 17:54:48
I am not condoning any part that Everton fans may have had in the disturbances, but if UEFA come down as hard on Everton as they do on Hajduk Split it will be ridiculous. Hajduk Split have already been sanctioned and fined for the fans behavior this season including racial chants. I just hope that any Everton fans who go to the away leg come home safe and well.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 17:55:48
We are an English Club. Sorry to say it but even in 2017 it still goes on.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 18:05:45
A couple of plastic bottles were thrown back from the Park Stand so I'm guessing a small fine, stewards and police were brilliant last night, fully expect the return leg played behind closed doors, I fear for any fellow Evertonians having to attend the away leg. One another note Celtic got thrown out of the cup winners cup in 85 for a bottle being thrown, that last night was far worse and common sense should play that game in an empty stadium, if not it will explode over there second leg.

5.) 18 Aug 2017 18:45:41
Sorry apologies missed out Celtic had to replay the tie they already won, losing 1 nil in the rearranged tie due to the bottle incident.



16 Aug 2017 18:48:08
Tomorrows game will be screened live on Everton's Youtube channel this is confirmed on the EFC Website.

1.) 16 Aug 2017 19:31:55
Glad I got a ticket, hope the streaming works well, shame it is not on itv4.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 21:57:52
Talk about a minutes applause on the 11th min to mark Rhys Jones 10 year anniversary. during Thursdays game.



12 Aug 2017 07:52:32
Got to say I'm really disappointed in the 3 Kits we have. The home and away kits are just boring and as for the third kit, well I'm just really disappointed I won't have it for the game today cos' its bloody lovely!
For the past 3 seasons the best kit we have had has been the 3rd kit, so who decides which is the away and which is the 3rd kit because who ever they are they really need to take a look at themselves.

1.) 12 Aug 2017 08:45:35
The purple kit is one of the best kits I've ever seen, I love it but we all have opinions.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 09:21:36
I'd go as far as to say its the best kit we have ever had :)

3.) 12 Aug 2017 10:06:45
me too Al.

Even if we could it would only be until January and it will take two months to get him match fit so we will only have him for 2 month playing time. Good player but won't really help us that much.

I would think there is blame on both sides, in fact no, blame is not the right word, both sides want the best deal they can get and that is perfectly reasonable IMO.

Isn't that the same Kalinic who played for Blackburn? I don't remember him doing much for them but to be fair I haven't seen much of him since then so he could have improved.

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.

Actually TrueBlue I think the decision he made today was the fist one he came to on his own without parasite agents advising him (badly) what's best I'm not sure he really wanted to leave in his heart of hearts and it finally dawned on him what an error he was about to make. I have no proof to back that up (maybe i'm just making it up ;) it's just my opinion.

ST I didn't want loads I just wanted one, a goalscorer that apart, we have had a fantastic window and like Moshiri said we just have to be patient while the team gels and as long as we can stay in touch with the top 6 until January then I can see us being more attractive to the better quality strikers although e may have to pay over the odds to get them in Jan.
we have got what we have got now no point in dwelling on it let's get behind the team starting with Spuds.

So ed 002 are you saying Chelsea can make Costa sign for whoever they want?

{Ed002's Note - Of course they can't. I said nothing of the sort. Did your mother repeatedly bang you on the head as a child?}
