Hi Ed02 do we hold any interest or indeed any chance of getting David Neres? I really do think he would suit our style of play.
If so how much do you envisage he would cost?
Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - David Neres (RW/LW) has been watched but no approach has been made to Ajax.}

Hi Ed002 firstly I apologise if this has been asked before, but who do you realistically see as an option for us this summer in the much needed striker position?
Also can you see Lookman leaving us?


{Ed002's Note - I know Borja Iglesias has again been suggested even though he has previously said I has no interest in Everton, Espanyol have a replacement and are keen to move him on. Not one to get the fans dancing I am afraid. Leap was never going to happen. Dzeko wants to stay in Italy. Everton need to do something but they now have the issue of Ramirez returning as well. Lookman will look to leave if the right offer comes up.}

Excellent thanks Ed.

In all seriousness now, what is the answer?
Sack Silva or reassess at the end of the season? We can't continue to sack managers, that is part of the reason we are in the mess we are in. Getting a new manager in with different tactics, style will put us even further back.
I was very pro Silva up to a couple of weeks ago, but now I am asking the same questions we all are:

1. Why continue with a formation (4231) that clearly doesn't suit us. Try 433, we have the players to do it - imagine Richarlison, Lookman and Bernard interchanging and tearing at you with pace.

2. Do we ever work on defending in training? I swear my 12 year old son could've organised that back line better.

3. I love Sigurdsson, but dear me he has been ineffective for weeks - either play him deeper in the midfield 3 or give someone else a go.

4. Why are we so lethargic on the ball (back, sideways, back and repeat). Play the ball first time and fast, use the pace we have at our disposal and get the fans off their seat for the 1st time in years. I'm not talking long ball tactics but Gomes is more than capable of playing a ball into the channel.

5. Where is our leader? We don't have one player who gets in the face of the referee and argues. We are too soft and always take the decisions. Why was nobody reminding the ref of the constant pulling in the box.

Sorry for the rant but I have just this week renewed my season ticket for next year and part of me already is not wanting to go. Will they give me a refund?
What do we do - stick or twist Mr Moshri?

1, I have said for weeks to do this, its clear we don’t have the quality centre forward we need to play 4-2-3-1. So play to your strengths and Richarlison, Lookman and Bernard interchanging would be frightening for defences.

2, Silva has been honest and said this and the players need to stand up and take responsibility.

3&4, with a change of formation I think Sigurdson would be fine in a 3 man midfield. Confidence is the key for both him and the rest when it comes to slick fast passing.

5, I agree there’s no proper leader in the team. No jags or Neville. Seamus and even Baines are great pros but don’t have that leadership quality. I maybe wrong as you don’t see and hear everything.


2.) 27 Jan 2019 11:33:14
Youth could be the answer. One player I like who gives out instructions and organises players is Feeney. I wouldn't be scared playing him at centre half. I think playing 4123 would be good or just standard 433. Another youth I think has enough to start is Joe Williams. Can pick a pass and has energy. Also Benni needs bringing back in.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 11:40:14
To great posts.

Hi Ed002 what is the current situation regarding Mina? I've seen on Barca's feed that he has returned to training and I would think if we had agreed a fee he wouldn't be there. What do you know kind sir?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any agreement at this time.}

1.) 06 Aug 2018 14:21:00
I only believe what Ed002 tells me or as far as transfers in are concerned when the player is shown in a blue jersey signing the papers.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 15:06:35
I believe Digne was training with Barcelona the day before things were finally agreed. We will have to see what transpires.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 16:38:47
As I understand it they have agreed a deal but are waiting to see if others are going to make an offer just maybe he is not our first choice and we aren't his.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 18:54:39
Makes sense, Scoundrel.

I dreamt last night (nothing biblical or of an ejaculatory nature) of Celtic's Dembele, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Lascelles revealing themselves to us (again, no debauched pun intended) .

5.) 06 Aug 2018 18:55:20
Is Brands still in Barca?

{Ed025's Note - i really dont know mate..



12 Aug 2017 08:07:02
Hi Ed002, have we any interest in any strikers now the ship seems to have sailed with regards Giroud? Is it just speculation that we are interested in Dzeko, cause I think he would be a great acquisition.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything new and nothing involving ED.}

That was the best atmosphere at Goodison for years and I'm still smiling now. Every player have 100% and the fans reacted to it - superb, long may it continue. UTFT.

Heard a rumour a couple of weeks ago from a mate who's a surveyor in Manchester that Van Gaal is buying a penthouse and is nailed on for our manager next season. At the time I just laughed it off, but now I've just seen a report linking him and Brands together and stating bookies have slashed the odds!
I hope this can't be true and it's just purely coincidental.


1.) 26 Apr 2018 12:01:48
just seen a quote from lvg today
he was asked about getting into management again his response was 'I already have an offer I couldn't refuse'



09 Apr 2018 20:39:21
Hi Ed, I heard a strong rumour at the match on Saturday that Allardyce is definitely staying and reports that he is planning for next season are true. Do you have any info on this and is this a possibility?


{Ed002's Note - As I have said, it is Allardyce who is planning for next season but I am not aware that he is definately staying. He is in a difficult position.}

1.) 09 Apr 2018 21:34:32
Cheers ed.

2.) 10 Apr 2018 00:15:50
Hope not. Sports is going every way i don't want it to atm.

3.) 09 Apr 2018 22:39:36
Is the difficult position being created from lack of support at board level ed or is it due to the fans.

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}

4.) 10 Apr 2018 07:03:51
Cheers Ed.



21 Jun 2017 17:57:18
Hi Ed, I've just received an email from the club stating of the new benefits of being a season ticket holder. It states that we will have free access to stream pre season games. Do you know if this includes all pre season games or just selected ones and they will charge (as usual) for the others?


{Ed025's Note - im sorry i dont jo..

1.) 21 Jun 2017 18:51:29
Just read my email Jo and from the way it reads to me it's only going to be selected pre season games plus after match interviews and player profiles.
I would assume then that the other games are going to be pay per view.
The selected matches does however include the friendly in Tanzania.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 19:09:32
Cheers RIB.

I had an amazing dream last night that we spent over £50m in 1 day in June! There appears to have been a definite shift in our transfer policy this season #dreamscancometrue.

It’s all nonsense no bid has been received and Sky are just making it up. Like ED002 has said previously the majority of rumours are totally untrue.

Has anyone actually seen this lad? I’ve heard he is a good prospect but I still have that worry in my mind that he is another Sandro. Ed002 can you give the lowdown on him please?


{Ed002's Note - Yes he is seen as having a very good future but you need to remember that there has been an effort to get him out of Juventus to a stepping stone club (Ajax was first choice of course but rejected the opportunity knowing what was going on) and then on again elsewhere. It will also cause some ructions with an advisor to the club.}

I also heard that Silva can talk to anyone after 1st June and was just put on gardening leave, hence the delay!

Ok thanks Ed

I apologise for my giddiness as I've never known a transfer window like this in my 30 years watching the blues.

I can't wait for the season to start



{Ed025's Note - me neither mate..

Although I agree Dolberg has the potential to become a great player, to say he has scored goals in a better league I'm not sure about. Is the Dutch league much better than the Scottish? And I agree with Toffee Ace, Dembele did well at Fulham and was highly rated then. In fact weren't we linked with him back then?

Small? I think you're looking at the wrong fella mate. I was amazed how big he was even next to RL. I thought he did well and just got done for the goal. I'd be happy to see him in blue next season alongside VVD.
