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,



03 Jun 2017 21:46:14
Just reading Sandro close to agreeing a deal with A. Madrid and will register him in January, my point is what is the point in ban as it makes a mockery of the punishment if this is true, either they can buy or not none of this pre contract rubbish, what is the point in a transfer windows.


1.) 03 Jun 2017 22:28:50
Mate, if he wants to sit on the sidelines for 6 months then play second fiddle to Griezmann and probably lacazette, not to mention perhaps Costa, sit of the bench gathering dust, blowing any chance of sneaking into the Spain WC squad, then let him.

2.) 03 Jun 2017 22:48:38
Oh don't get me wrong that does not bother me, it's the fact that the ban should mean ban which includes no pre contract if Sandro wants to wait for the deal in January then that's ok, it's like Man City agreeing deals already, these players are already wearing team track suits, it's just my opinion that how come these players can walk around in Man City gear when they are registered for other clubs either we have a transfer window or not, it would be like lukaku doing a interview for Man Utd tomorrow wearing there shirt while we're paying his wages, sorry it's quite simple rule no deals till window is open. Sorry for rant maybe one day it will back fire by a player getting injured and fails a medical leaving buying club in a mess.

3.) 04 Jun 2017 08:39:10
He won't be sitting around. They loan him back to Malaga till January.

4.) 04 Jun 2017 11:53:37
Hmm. You can't loan back someone you haven't bought. A Madrid cannot buy anyone till January th only thing they can do is agree a deal in principle and hope Sandro sticks to it. I think Sandro would want assurances griezman would be moving on and that he would get game time if Lazaette is signed in January. He has also stated in the press he isn't discussing his future until after the U21 championships which is June 30th.

5.) 04 Jun 2017 12:31:37
Unfortunately they can buy him, they just can't register him as their player. Makes a mockery of the 'transfer ban' IMHO. Either they are banned or they aren't. Typical weakness shown by both UEFA and FIFA.

6.) 04 Jun 2017 13:19:03
Agree, didn't realise they could buy and only not register players. Lenient as usual from the top brass.



24 May 2017 17:45:21
Some people on hear would make good journalists.
Koeman said he was meeting board on on Monday and a statement would be made.
So why are people expecting a statement Monday or Tuesday, try and listen to RK instead of googling Everton everyday and reading the rags.


1.) 24 May 2017 18:20:21
It was said Barclay had till the Arsenal game to give EFC his decision . Everton should have by Wed evening in everyone's interest said either way what was happening.
By not doing so I think your contributor is saying they are weakening their position making it look like they are desperate to molly Codel him . It's like a cheating partner " don't do that again or I will leave you " Week later no change and it goes on .
He making a FOOL OF MY CLUB and they contributing to it.



11 May 2017 23:50:04
If Barkley wants to leave then he should tell the club so we can all move on, I have been Ross Barkley biggest fan and have always defended him when he has been poor. But it's not like a Rooney situation where he all knew he was going to the very top and break all sorts of records.

Barkley is top drawer when he wants to be but it's 1 in every 4 or 5 games it needs to be consistent week in week out and looks a very difficult player to manage because it's so frustrating when you see a player that has everything you want, "if he had a brain he would be a very dangerous player"
But where would he go where he will be playing every week certainly not anyone above us.

What do people think about the left back at West Ham Masuaku, have not seen much of him but last few matches he has caught my eye quick, strong and can take players on.




03 Dec 2017 09:37:26
At least with Big Sam he will have a game plan for the big teams and although it was Huddersfield we looked organised yesterday.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 11:28:00
As said before going ticky tacky, play out from the back, ooh look how well I can pass the ball (sideways) players, tactics and style is okay when you can change at the flick of a finger. For too long we as a Club have either not trusted our own brilliant players such as Barklay (and yes he is with confidence instilled a wonderful player) or spent tons of money (last summer) on quite frankly mediocre players. All this has been down to the Manager and his backroom staff. Big Sam brings in a backroom staff and does with what he has until he can bring in those that will bring stability and improve the positions we already have in the Squad. He did this at Bolton and didn't have half the resources now at his disposal. To see the organisation (one assistant sat high up in the stands) , one assistant doing Sams running and screaming Sammy Lee was quite absorbing, entertaining and to be honest quite impressive after the dross we have been served recently. Liverpool make no bones about it are a bloomin good side and their pace up front is frightening, I do not expect us to win but I do quite confidently expect Sam and his staff to formulate a plan to drastically cut down Liverpools chances and hinder their attack. Thoroughly enjoyed yesterday particularly the second half, we have a long way to go, but looking forward to the journey at last.

2.) 03 Dec 2017 12:07:35
Good post.

3.) 03 Dec 2017 16:20:56
Good post DFS. I still think out summer purchases will come good under the right manager and hopefully Allardyce is that man. Klassen, Sandro and Vlasic will need a season just to acclimatise and adapt. If they stick around they'll most likely do well.



03 Dec 2017 09:35:11
Big Sam was not my choice but I don't dislike the guy he's done a good job pretty much where ever he has been, one thing people can't argue with is that he gets the best out of his players and that is what a manager is for right, but when fans boo him I just don't understand we have had a hard time lately and last 2 matches we scored 6 conceded 0 so let's have some positives going into Christmas period, we can still finish 7th best of the rest which would not of been a disaster if things went right from the start.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 10:30:43
That's right mate. Did you know he averages a 33% win rate throughout his career. and he is doing even better with us. can you believe he has a 100% win rate. Wow I wonder how long he can keep that up? , only joking!

2.) 03 Dec 2017 15:05:33
He has a 100% win rate for England too Degsy :p.



30 Nov 2017 00:15:54
Although still lots of improvement well done lads you gave it everything to get a result and we got one, I said 4 yeas ago rooney should be playing that position he ran the game, still people being negative saying score line flattered us well maybe it did but all I'm interested in is results at the moment and everyone one putting a shift in the rest will come with confidence but let's enjoy it as we have not enjoyed first few months of the season.




28 Nov 2017 14:46:34
I can't believe out of all the managers that has been linked to Everton over the last 6 weeks why Eddie Howe's name has not popped up has done a great job with Bournemouth A to get them to prem and B to keep them in the league and plays great football with players he has at his disposal.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 15:42:16
And he's an Evertonian.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 15:51:35
Because he can’t defend or live in the north or take bournmouth any further regardless of money.

Why would any prem team want to leave the biggest brand in football, the reason other European countries want this is because there leagues are on the decline in terms of money and commercial revenue, there is a reason why sky let the champions league go to bt as no one wants to watch to the later rounds, the premier league is watched because of the excitement that our league has, different styles week in week out.


{Ed002's Note - The three Premier League clubs involved see it as a natural progression football wise.}

Not being funny but why not Martin O’Neill, he is a good manager that has pretty much performed where ever he has been and has that ability to make average players into very good players something I’m sure he learnt from the greatest manager ever Mr Clough.
People on here keep saying not him, not him. We are not a club that can go and get the best, just like we can’t get those top players we are where we are, I would welcome his appointment just like I would with Dyche.

It’s something of nothing I think, there was nothing that we didn’t know other than a gift sum of money, I think there just wondering like the rest of us have been that Usmanov could well be involved further down the line depending on his Arsenal involvement which on the basis of the last few months with offers being made for full control, Everton could be his route out, hence why MOSHIRI bought half the club leaving room for full takeover, weather this happens or not I don’t see any controversy over this transaction.

If we offer him the job, he will come, simple as that, compensation would be reached in the end, I’m convinced he is the man, he just seems to fit us.

I’m sorry to say but if garbutt can’t get a game at the age of 24 he is not good enough, we need to give up on this one it would of happened by now, lots of promise but clearly not a prem player, I still don’t understand why he is still here.


{Ed002's Note - Answering a previous post, Silva's registration was made already. It just wasn't registered in time. To avoid an issue Leicester asked the PL to agree this in writing and they did.}

To be honest Morgan has been improving over last few matches, I also thought when McCarthy came on that was the same player when we first signed him and I believe he will be good in a midfield with rooney.

Because we are the current worst team in league and we need someone to come in quick and stamp there authority on these players, we kno nothing about Fonsceca and is too risky in our situation where is Allardyce is a better choice than anyone at getting us out of this mess, people have to put there pride aside for one minute, and what ever your feelings towards him are he is the best man for the job we need to stay up simple as that forget about styles and who we should buy in January we are entering a tough festive period now and appointing a manager who does not know the league going into Christmas is ludicrous.


{Ed025's Note - i know what you are saying metz and if he does a number and gets us safe then it may justify his appointment, i want to know how long his contract is and how lucrative the reward of our saviour is before i dance naked in the street over him mate...2 and a half years and 40 pieces of silver i suspect..
