Everton in advanced talks for Malcom

Just hit sky.




12 May 2018 14:24:25
I think fans are being a bit too impatient yes been a disaster all round. I did not get carried away at start of season and certainly did not expect us to finish any higher that 7th but we were suppose to bridge the gap start a plan a vision, we have finished 8th maybe 9th after tomorrow but feels like just survived.

We are in a worse situation than end of last summer. No matter who comes in the likely hood is that we won't finish any higher than 7th next season, it's a case of stick or twist for Moshiri even though I don't lik Sam he would probably gaurentee if where bringing in a silva or foncesca is a huge gamble and could end within 10 games If we get bad start, I mean although silva does play a nice style he has not spent a whole season at a english club, Eddie Howe would be a better option than him let's not forget this will be Bournemouth 3rd season in prem and he does it playing football and a philosophy, with better players I think he is a top manager.


1.) 12 May 2018 15:27:58
I would honestly rather see us relegated having a go and taking a gamble, than see us finish 7th/ 8th watching the dross we’ve seen this season. Until we all stop thinking negatively and just about survival we are never going to kick on as a club. As much as I loathe them, we need to take a leaf out of dark side, and just start believing where our rightful place is: back at the top.

2.) 12 May 2018 16:21:56
I feel like there's an inbetween from being relegated to competing haha.

3.) 12 May 2018 17:17:11
Self fulfilling mediocrity. not the kind of aim I want for us Hugo. Roll the dice and have a go.

4.) 13 May 2018 09:59:45
Even thou I was really glad when Sam came in, I really have change my mind now, The problem is, since we've been safe from relegation he has had the chance to play more attacking football, play more attacking players, he hasn't, this I feel is the only way he knows how to set teams up, difficult to beat but with no real attacking threat, I thank him for what he has done, but if we want top players, we need a manager that can play top style football, no point buying attacking players and asking them to defend in our own half for 90 mins.

{Ed025's Note - i agree simon..

5.) 13 May 2018 22:23:33
He’s probably got a clause for more money per point so taking a safe 1 than risk it for 3.



06 Mar 2018 15:05:23
I wonder who would win out of our U23s v First team.


1.) 06 Mar 2018 16:47:00

2.) 06 Mar 2018 16:56:57
u23 by a mile, hard work beats talent and those under 23s are a group that play together.

3.) 06 Mar 2018 17:05:49
U23s easily.

4.) 06 Mar 2018 17:12:19
They also have talent.

5.) 06 Mar 2018 22:01:09
Think Danny mills on 5live last night during utd game made a great point.

Hard work beats talent if talent doesn't work hard.

Kinda relates to our squad. We have some great players who need to work a lot harder to win and keep the ball.

6.) 07 Mar 2018 01:30:09
The first team would defeat the U23s imho, as, no matter how bad our first team are and how “together” our U23s are, the gap between the two levels is massive.

7.) 07 Mar 2018 07:23:00
The U11's would give our first team a run for their money the way we are playing this season.

8.) 07 Mar 2018 07:44:46
hard one to answer that i think a full u23s with the players out on loan back in there like dowell and robinson would be a very close game but right now the first team would nick it i think but it would be very close the passing and movement from the 23s is exceptional and they battle for everything.

9.) 07 Mar 2018 08:34:27
wouldn't say massive at all bobby, very talented set up we have with a great forward line including sambou Hornby and henen including a core of feeney adeniran.

10.) 07 Mar 2018 10:46:56
wblue i agree mate ad to that the likes of captain Evens an young Beni and that rb markelo looks good aswell i really do think our future is very bright indeed.

11.) 08 Mar 2018 01:07:22
eBlue: for all their undoubted promise, I maintain that the step up from U23 to first-team football is massive - physically, mentally, technically and tacticslly - which is why very few (maybe 1 or 2 every other season) have actually made it as regular PL players.

12.) 08 Mar 2018 13:38:48
People talk about Gardiola Teams but the thing they have above all else including Talent is hard work and 100 percent effort. You don't give that in a Gardiola Team and you are out. For us Schneiderlin, Williams in particular do not put in the effort and that allied to loss of form resulted in them being the cause of quite a few points. Alardyce needs to look beyond his stubborness and prove he is not the same as Martinez or Koeman. Yes believe in your abilities but have humility as well. One of the strongest assets of good Management is the ability to delegate and that happens through listening.



25 Aug 2017 21:43:23
Couple of weeks ago I was just having bit of a laugh saying about having a go for Costa but after hearing Koeman today, that was a huge smile when talking about him. Could something be going on with talks, plus a loan deal will suit everyone including him, he only wants to go to Athletico Madrid but they can't play him till January plus playing in champions league won't be a motive as he won't get that till next season.
I have a feeling this could be a deadline day biggest story, as the whole Costa saga has to be sorted one way or the other.


{Ed002's Note - why would Chelsea loan out Costa?}

1.) 25 Aug 2017 21:51:57
I think you may be write about that ed002 but stranger things have happened.

{Ed002's Note - There are clubs interested in buying him. Chelsea has no interest in having to deal with him again next summer.}

2.) 25 Aug 2017 22:18:53
Everton could offer Ross Barkley plus cash in exchange for Costa. probably never going to happen, and obviously Costa doesn't want to stay In England let alone come to the north of it, but if Athletico can't afford him, and Chelsea don't want him, then who knows?

3.) 25 Aug 2017 22:29:47
I think a player like Costa should be playing at a big club. when europes big 5 come calling it's hard to turn down Barca. Real. Bayern psg and Everton. every other club is just a stepping stone to the big time I am just glad we are now 1 of those top clubs that world class players want to join.

4.) 25 Aug 2017 22:33:32
Ed's right Chelsea will want to offload ASAP. Costa will not want to come to the North of England so for me this is not going to happen. If it did it would be great but it would have to be on a long term deal otherwise it is a waste of time.

5.) 25 Aug 2017 22:49:41
Ed wouldn't it be beneficial for Chelsea to loan Costa to us before the sell him, so he can cause the rest of the league and Chelseas competition problems?

{Ed002's Note - They are not going to wait a year to sell him.}

6.) 25 Aug 2017 22:56:20
So it's less than a week to go all I hear is Costa won't be coming to us so can some one tell me where he could go, as.

{Ed002's Note - try the Chelsea page. They will tell you about three interested clubs and the meeting in Monaco yesterday. This is the Evertonpage.}

7.) 26 Aug 2017 00:55:17
Athletico cannot buy the player until January, I think a few are suggesting Costa on loan until January, keep the player fit and if he scores then it will strengthen Chelseas hand for the transfer fee, not playing for a club until January and Athletico can come in with a much lower bid, I would not write this off just yet, especially with Chelsea wanting Barkley. If I remember rightly a few wrote Rooney off as not going to happen, but it did.

8.) 26 Aug 2017 03:02:10
After 5 mins at Goodison Costa would fall in love with us, he'd be the new Dunc, it's not going to happen but imagine if it did, the next derby.

9.) 26 Aug 2017 05:39:33
buying a player is not the same as registering him with eufa, any team can buy any player when they want they just can't register him. if costa was to be loaned to efc and (personally i think it solves nothing) it would be a loan deal with athl. madrid not chelsea surely madrid would buy him before the deadline day, as they are currently trying to do and they would loan him to us to sharpen his fitness til jan. would make no sense why chelsea would loan a top player for 6mths. " has this even ever happened before"? . so not going to happen. costa is for sale not loan and we all know where he is demanding to go.

10.) 26 Aug 2017 09:47:18
We can all dream of 'big name' strikers coming, but Costa is a big no no for me - his attitude isn't Everton and his fitness would take most of a loan spell to get match ready. so a bad deal us - a non starter.

But I do like the look of Slamani at Leicester, looks like what we need and Walsh is clearly a fan. maybe a late bid will secure him. any noise behind the scenes on this one Ed?

{Ed002's Note - What loan spell?}

11.) 26 Aug 2017 12:14:04
I may be wide of the mark here but Atletico aren't allowed to buy him until January. If we signed him with the understanding that Atletico will probably buy him in the summer for at least the same price then it is a win win for everyone. Chelsea offload a player who isn't going to play, we get a fully fit Costa for 3/ 4 of the season and Atletico get their man. Even if they signed him in Jan we could get a good 2 months out of him, which if we don't have a deal for any other striker could be essential to our top 4/ 6 hopes.

{Ed002's Note - No, they can buy him now but not register him until January 1. So, just to be clear, you are suggesting that Everton pay Chelsea the €50M asking price for Costa whilst negotiating the sale of a player they don't own to Atletico Madrid next summer - with Atletico guaranteeing Everton the €50M they don't want to pay Chelsea for a player that will then be a year older?. This is of course a player who is currently not even on this continent, is overweight and unfit (so he won't be available for a while), who will go in and possibly disrupt the dressing room taking someone elses place in the team - someone who has been attending training and working hard for Everton and his future, who will likely then be thinking what a load of DFs are running Everton - and will no doubt have ask his agent to look elsewhere for another club for him? Sounds like a plan.}

12.) 26 Aug 2017 15:52:31
Well put Ed, common sense as usual.

13.) 26 Aug 2017 18:38:41
Great reply that, ed. We'd love a fully fit and enthusiastic Costa but not the current Costa.

14.) 27 Aug 2017 01:41:21
Fair enough ed02, I did acknowledge that I may have been wide of the mark, and tbh was hoping that you would put me straight. I did not have any idea of his asking price, as you told us all not to think about the money. It was only an idea, and not necessarily what I want for the club. My whole assumption was based on us paying a fee that Atletico would then pay. As I am not in the know, and don't read any tabloid religiously, I had no idea of the large proposed fee.

{Ed002's Note - Tommy, I like your idea of Everton selling other team's players. But Costa? Surely you should be looking to sell the likes of Harry Kane who would bring in a lot more money?}

15.) 28 Aug 2017 10:02:07
Ed 002's second to last reply was absolutely brilliant.



12 Jul 2017 16:16:45
I really don't know what's going to happen with Barkley, it's Very quiet at the moment, I really don't want him to go as I think he can play with a bit more confidence as oppose to thinking he we don't perform it's my fault, there are other quality players there now and the fact a local boy who should not be looking to go anywhere just to win things, learn from Rooney about pressure here is a guy that left his boyhood club and won everything at club level broke records that stood for long time and not sure they will get broke again, and now instead of walking away for money beyond belief, he moved back to the club he loves where there is all eyes on him, talk about pressure.
Barkley take £100k a week stay at your boyhood club and learn from the best English player there has been since Gazza
Credit to Rooney agent as well, how refreshing to see an agent getting him back there knowing he could of made a fortune going to China, I know they been together long time but you only have to look at Lukaku agent.


1.) 12 Jul 2017 17:57:31
Rooney Barkley and Davies could be the past present and future of Everton's greatest talent on show, I would love to see goals created from Davies battling determination in midfield, leading to Barkley driving the play forward to find Rooney who dazzles with a sublime finish as he wheels away having scored to acknowledge Davies and Barkley!
Guess I will have to just keep enjoying those moments in my Everton pyjamas playing FIFA ☺️.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 20:06:48
Rooney and Barkley ahead of Gueye, Sneiderlin and Klaasen, awesome.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 21:32:18
That group could cause mayhem BCT.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 21:32:46
i wonder if barkley will show the kind of sentiment that seems to be in the hearts and minds of evertonians altho, i very much doubt it. he hasn't been as quiet as people think, he has been offered more to stay than he will get from spurs. established spurs stars are on less than him now, that's for sure. i don't think he will ever stop being an evertonian however, he seems to be under the illusion that a move will get him his england place back said it before and i will say it again he has been poorly advised. his desire to leave efc is in my opinion nothing to do with ambition or money he has had his head turned by someone and probs doesn't know what to do. his silence and efc's pursuit of gylfi means he will leave surely, efc will not pay nearly 90 million for klassy and gylfi then have a third player like barkley that would be nearly 130 millions worth of att mid players if you think about it how is he going to win his eng place back with 2 rivals who have much better stats than him and throw rooney into the mix, would barks even make the team at this point if efc sign gylfi imo it definitely means the end of ross at efc and fans should remember it is and has always been his choice.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 22:40:35
I would like to see Barkley go, he does not want to sign his contract so does not want to play for Everton. I doubt if we get Gylfy he would get anywhere near the first team anyway.
His problem is he thinks he is to good for Everton, well Everton are now to good for him.
No champion league club wants him that must tell you something. West Ham is his level and not worth more than £25 mill. He may be a local lad but he still has to be good enough and love the club and he fails on both counts.
I await all the abuse lol.

6.) 12 Jul 2017 23:41:28
Its World Cup year. He has to be playing. That's the only reason I think he won't sit out his 12 months contract. I think he will go to Swansea In swap deal. Works out well for all parties. I think he has shots himself in the foot.

Swap him for sigurtson - save the 40 million for dzeko/ giroud/ dembele/ benteke.

7.) 13 Jul 2017 00:38:45
yeh but you have to be realistic, why would swans swap him for gylfi? i am shocked (not as shocked as i was 10 mins ago when i read we were in for bony! ) that you think swans would take him as part of any deal or that ross would want such a move which would imo definitely end any chance he had of making the eng squad he would be invisible in south wales (no offence to wales great country) i mean how many times would eng manager go there to watch him play? like it or lump it he is contracted at efc meaning he could just stay and fight for a place which would be better for him than moving to s/ wales if spurs don't come in for him he may well end up at w/ ham or even leicester if gylfi chjooses us over them which he may well not do, but don't be suprised if he sees out his contract. he is now in a catch 22 situation he either goes to a lesser club or he stays or spurs only the lesser club will offer him 1st team football he would be a squad player anywhere else,

Now is the time for lookman to come into the side Walcot has not done enough lately for me. I think he is going to be the real deal the way he went past 2-3 Chelsea defenders was brilliant in such confined space.


{Ed025's Note - i agree metz and would love to see him get a run of games, but marco sees these guys day in day out and we have to have faith that he is doing the right thing mate, its baffling to me i must admit but i have every confidence that silva knows his onions..

1.) 13 Nov 2018 18:33:09
Ed025 that may well be the case but surely it is no secret now that reports of Lookman turning it on in training and practice games cannot have escaped all of us. That being the case perhaps it has taken this long for his attitude (apparent) to be ironed out.

{Ed025's Note - maybe so BCT, i think the lad has bags of talent and i would like to see him have a run of games so we can see what he brings to the table mate, at the expense of theo if i was picking the side..

2.) 13 Nov 2018 19:02:39
I would guess it is pretty close to Lookman starting a game now. If Walcott was better defensively, then maybe there would be an argument, but as good as they both are attacking (when in form) . they are both poor defensively. So I would guess Lookman will start a game very soon.

{Ed025's Note - i hope your right degsy..

3.) 14 Nov 2018 08:29:28
I agree Degsy. The squad we have now - players need to know if you don’t perform for 2-3 games then someone is going to get your place. Healthy competition- on that note I think Bernard could be dropped.

4.) 14 Nov 2018 13:39:10
The way Lookman beat 4 players in the space of 2 yds was one of the best pieces of skill I've seen all season on the other hand Walcott's woeful control from a brilliant Sigurdsson pass was one of the worst. It's time to get Adi in the team two or three games sitting on the bench won't do Theo any harm at all. Marco is a top manager in the making I'm sure he won't shy away from this decision now just the centre backs to try and fit in!

5.) 14 Nov 2018 08:22:55
The manager has handled him superbly in my opinion Ed. If he had been thrown in when we were struggling last season, or even earlier this season, I believe his attitude may have been suspect. He now knows he has to earn and keep his place with effort and performances. Silva does the simple things right!

{Ed025's Note - no argument from me degsy mate..



23 Sep 2018 21:40:33
I won't lie I'm always disappointed whe we loose but today's match was the first time in a long time we have gone to a top 6 team and had a go not just holding on from moment we kick off we went too win and bottom line is we never took our chances we could of been 2 up very early.
If we were not creating chances then yes worrying times but we had enough chances in last 2 defeats to of scored 5/ 6 maybe more, I feel that someone will be on the end of a drubbing, there is so much to be positive about this team so far than the last 2 seasons of garbage. We seem to have an identity back.
This team is going to get better we still have Mina and Gomes to come in which should make team better and also a fully fit Bernard.
January has to be a striker I know there not cheap but we are short there Richarlson and Walcott are not strikers.




17 Sep 2018 16:35:35
Although the result was a bad one yesterday and performance was not there, the fact we could and should of scored 3/ 4 goals gives me a bit of positivity, they weren't just good chances they were sitters, the 3rd goal was always going to be decisive.
Bernard looks like he will be a crowd favourite bags of skill but work rate was outstanding he does no mind getting stuck in for such a small player.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 18:05:10
Now that's a glass half full if ever i've seen one.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 23:40:15
You forget how bad West Ham are.



16 Aug 2018 18:23:27
Early days yet but what's everyone's opinion on what is deemed a successful season?
Personally I think we have to finish 7th but I want us to look at one of the cups this year, so many off the top 6 don't care about it and I don't get why, they are so determined to get champions league. Winning a trophy is so important that's what you play for to win things, even a league cup. That's what we want right to win trophies, you don't get remembered for finishing 2nd, 3rd or 4th.


1.) 16 Aug 2018 19:18:10
I think 7th could be attainable considering our challengers for it, i.e Leicester (sold their best player) and Burnley (Europa league distraction) will be wide of the mark this season.
Maybe someone like a Newcastle or Bournemouth could have a good season.
Other than that, I'm struggling to see anyone who could get really close.
It's up to us to gel and play as a team. If we do, with our quality, we should be looking at 7th at least.
Arsenal have Chelsea next, and if they lose could have their confidence knocked. Couple that with all their new players and manager and they could struggle to make top 6.

2.) 16 Aug 2018 21:15:46
10th to 7th. It's going to take this season to get the squad working how Silva wants it and the next two windows to replace any players who don't fit.

I've got plenty of patience for the people in place.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 21:19:58
Think we have a good chance of finishing in the top six myself.

{Ed025's Note - oooh bit early for talk like that GB, i would love it to be true of course but im forecasting nothing until after christmas mate..

4.) 16 Aug 2018 21:41:26
If you to know what a successful season would be, it would be prem champs and both domestic cups won, but I'll settle for a good cup run and a euro place.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 22:08:00
Everton have been waiting years for Marcel and Marco to arrive.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 22:41:50
Hard to beat will do for me this season with plenty of goals.

7.) 17 Aug 2018 02:10:05
Top 8 and beat Liverpool twice. I’d be fine.

{Ed0333's Note - you wouldn’t even beat Liverpool ladies mate. You might get top 8 tho.

8.) 17 Aug 2018 02:14:38
Progress but its hard to define progress isn't it? I think we've had a good close season and have strengthened the squad considerably but they will take time to settle in and all the squad still have to get used to Silva's style of play. Patience and understanding will also be required.

Having said all that I agree with a lot of the posters that this season there is a good opportunity to look at moving up in the table. Man City and Liverpool both strong and have added to their squads but Spurs, a new stadium and no additions, Chelsea and Arsenal new managers and some unrest, Burnley distracted by Europe, Leicester losing Mahrez and Puel unpopular, West Ham bought a lot but I think they will struggle, Newcastle weak in backup to the first team. The rest focussing on survival

Could be the time to be positive but really all I want is progress I can see


9.) 17 Aug 2018 08:55:50
Avoiding relegation and bankruptcy (smile)

10.) 17 Aug 2018 09:07:01
I honestly feel like we have already made the progress we needed. We have a squad with players that cover the whole pitch. Our age group of players is now in the right area. But most importantly we look like we can actually play football that allows us to sustain pressure onto the opposition. I know we have only played 1 game, but when we went down to 10 men, we carried on trying to score goals in a game away from home. It is early days, but I have seen enough to suggest we are heading in the right direction. I know we have some great youngsters who will undoubtedly make it to the top. League position this season is irrelevant. More important is that we continue to strive to attack and create chances and goals. As a supporter a trophy or European qualification would be nice, but I can wait a season or two.

11.) 17 Aug 2018 10:43:30
To me a successful season would be one that sees us comfortable in the league, pushing the top half, playing good football, hard to beat, a good cup run, and the manager still there at the end of the season.
Then hopefully next season, really push on and hopefully start pushing the top 6.

12.) 18 Aug 2018 11:29:11
We are going to win it lads be positive come you mighty blues.



14 Aug 2018 12:17:48
Just read article about money made from companies around the World Cup Usmanov USM holdings who own Megafon supplied all stadiums with internet and all communications in a 600m deal not bad for couple of months, that will be a nice chunk for our stadium.

Nothing will happen other than slap on risk with fine, if they make an example of us by anything bigger like points deduction then they will open a big can of worms as tapping up has gone on for decades, and I would say most transfers are done with some form of tapping up.


{Ed002's Note - This is not the only tapping up investigation ongoing with Everton and the club has previous history.}

Well said work in progress the summer was good business but people have to remember it was his first window and we probably shifted a lot more out than I though we woul be able to and made signings I didn’t think we could get.
A lot of Silva/ Brands signings have not played much yet and some not at all, I just hope Mina can be are powerhouse at the back as I think it will help Keane, holgate and zouma better we need a leader back there, we got bullied on Sunday.

He has a buy out clause of 100m euro in his contract so don’t see anything happening unless Barcelona want him out but wouldn’t be that cheap even if they were to accept a lower price.

We can blame defence all we want but the reason we lost today and last sunday was we failed to take our chances, goals wins you matches, that’s not to say there aren’t issues with our defence because there are but this is something that will take time to repair it’s a fault that’s been broke for years left too rot, Mina has been brought in to be the leader and I think he will sort out a lot off the problems certainly command box well but it will be about who partners him.
I’m happy so far with the way team are shaping even if results are poor at moment.


{Ed025's Note - you are so right metz, not taking our chances filters back to the defence and puts them under immense pressure not to concede, of course this makes them more nervous and we all know the rest mate..

I think Tosun scores 9/ 10 with that header just not happening for him at moment but at least he is getting chances. The fact we are creating chances is a good sign as we weren’t creating anything last season.

Slagging of a manager is ridiculous we were 2 nil down due to errors and silva tried to do something about it and the sub was always going to leave gaps in behind But if we took our chances like West Ham did we would of got a result.

I just did don’t see the investment opportunity at Chelsea, enough of a return.
They are now a large branded outfit it will cost min £2.5billion.
Bigger investment opportunities that surround BMD and a greater profit on share price.
