"Everton linked with shock move for Alexis Sanchez"
What a load of utter, utter B*****Ks.
I have figured out my next career change i'm going to be a red top journalist apparently all you need is an good imagination and no regard for actual facts.
Sanchez will compliment Messi and Ronaldo nicely in our attack don't you think?

1.) 29 Oct 2017 13:56:51
I think he'd be an astute signing Al, there's not many players who are also fully qualified referees.

(Ok I know he's not really but he certainly thought he was last week)

2.) 29 Oct 2017 15:36:53
Yeah I noticed he kept marking out the 10 yards for the ref by standing in front of the ball at free kicks and walking backwards.



10 Oct 2017 02:24:10
Eds, its been rumoured Everton want to recall Henry Onyekuru in January, is this likely or even allowed?

{Ed002's Note - I would not think so. I can't see how he would qualify for a work permit.}

1.) 11 Oct 2017 00:27:29
Trying the special talent way in I think. can't see it happening tho.

{Ed002's Note - Ok, but it seems extremely odd.}

2.) 11 Oct 2017 09:20:10
I think it's the press having a slow day at the office they came up with this story just because he posted a pic of himself in Liverpool I mean imagine coming over to your parent club during a int break.



24 Aug 2017 14:24:02
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.



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.

Anyone think Niasse might be looking at a two game ban that penalty was very dubious and it looked like a dive.

1.) 18 Nov 2017 17:45:15
If the ref saw and dealt with it can they revisit it? I didn't think they could.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 18:11:33
no I'm sure the panel will look at it and if no contact he will be banned.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 20:05:25
Thats only for cards or other incidents smit think the diving thing is completely separate and he could get a ban.



29 Oct 2017 15:37:53
No Keane in the squad today is he injured or does Rhino not fancy him?



23 Oct 2017 22:51:14
Right we have 12 games left until 1st January and of those only Liverpool and Chelsea Finished above us last year so we have to target 8 out of those 12 being wins at the very least and I think that is achievable if players are played in their natural positions and we can find a manager who can connect with the players which is why I think Rhino would be great at least to steady the ship.

1.) 23 Oct 2017 23:41:00
We still have a poor defence, that won't get sorted overnight.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 00:10:34
No target man and a lack of a centre back might stop that ambition. But not impossible. If we don't get a run going we will find it tough to atract priority players.

3.) 24 Oct 2017 08:53:53
Agree with ToffeeAl. Unsy will play them in their natural positions, he is also well respected at the Club. We will never know what went on behind the scenes and I take the view that a persons, personal life is also their own. RK was never going to move us on, as he just does not know what to do when things go against.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 21:19:20
We play to our strength and that is what should have been going on from 1st game of the season, we don't have a target man so no point in playing to whip balls in, what we do have is pace in abundance and that scares defenders, a 3 pronged attack of DCL with Lookman and Vlasic either side will get us goals, yes the defence has been weak so let's play defenders who have a bit of pace so won't drop so deep, Holgate isn't a right/ left back and should be given a run next to Keane as they are the future of the club. Forget a back 3 as it doesn't work as we don't have natural wing backs, a flat back 4 is what we need and that's because we have the personnel for that. Sig needs a run in his actual position of number 10 before judging him, Williams needs to be kept away from both the starting 11 and bench, Schneiderlein needs to earn his place too and Gana and Davies IMO are ahead of him for that 1 holding role as we don't need 2 holding players. I am by no means the manager but we have players that if played in the correct system in the correct positions will get results, my formation would be a 4-1-2-3.
Lookman and Vlasic will give us that width, Sig behind DCL will offer support, Davies can be our box to box midfielder and Gana can sit and mop up in front of Keane and Holgate. My only problem is Right back as until Coleman is back we don't really have strength there, Kenny did alright against Arsenal so would go with him.
We have Bolasie, Coleman and Barkley to come back and hopefully to a side that is being managed properly by a competent manager. I haven't mentioned Rooney as I feel he is more a problem than a solution, what is his position? He comes too deep when he is supposedly playing up top so he can be utilised as a midfielder if needed, not as a striker.
I do feel Unsy has the support of the players and we will see a totally different performance at Chelsea tomorrow, the optimism is back due to the change on the bench, arrogance does not bring success as Ron has found out.
As for permanent manager, I have always stated Benitez as my choice and ain't going to change that, but, after listening to Rhino today he is Everton and that is what we need, so I hope he does well and shows that the U23's success can be replicated with the first team, he is one of us and that is always an excellent start.

{Ed025's Note - very good post that gray and i agree with most of that mate..



23 Oct 2017 00:00:44
This was my first year as a season ticket holder, due to my disabilities and distance I have to travel every match day is a painful experience but I was happy to endure it because the team last year gave me hope that we would see some great football, now I dread match days and am seriously considering not going again. I do love the club though so I suppose after a few days of coming to terms with the latest disappointment I will drag my self the 140 mile round trip in the hope it will get better.
We did at least show some attacking intent yesterday.

1.) 23 Oct 2017 10:11:14
True supporter ToffeeAL. You deserve better than what you've been getting recently.



22 Oct 2017 03:31:54
well today's game is going to be a real pain in the backside to get to for me and I seriously thought about not going but we have to stand together as a club players, fans, management all. I hope we can get behind the team today because let's be honest they need us.

1.) 22 Oct 2017 07:08:24
We may get lucky yet and guarantee not to get beat. That storm may do us a favour and the match gets called off, if not then we may actually see the ball being passed forwards, not on purpose mind, it will just be as it gets passed sideways the wind catches it and moves it forward.
If it goes ahead I can't see passed a convincing Arsenal win of 3-0 with us failing to register a shot on target.

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.

Burnley didn't play boring football at Goodison a few weeks ago I would rather have someone who plays to the strengths of the players he has than try to shoehorn players to fit a supposed attractive style a la koeman. If Sean Dyche came in and got us winning again that would do for me.

To be fair almost all "Name" managers usually have such a recognisable name because they are good managers.

{Ed002's Note - Roy Hodgson is not available to Everton at the moment.}
