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.

Away from performance we scored 3 and kept clean sheet, positive springboard for Saturday I feel we can go on a bit of a run now to build momentum not saying win them all.


{Ed025's Note - like you say metz its a start, confidence is everything and lets just hope that we see the same level of endeavor that we did against united, but with a different outcome obviously mate..

1.) 22 Sep 2017 18:12:54
Hopefully trueblue. I'm hoping Niasse can kick on and Vlasi looks like a good addition. As you say Ed confidence is so important and another win would give amother boost.

Just want some positive things to focus on again.



20 Sep 2017 15:00:34
Can we forget about who we should of got and who we should get in January for a couple of months, we got what we got so let's get behind the boys tonight and get a confidence boost with a win and build on it.

5.) 20 Sep 2017 22:14:44
Seen plenty of them tonight.



15 Sep 2017 16:43:36
Honestly talking of Koeman getting the sack, I really hope we don't start changing managers like everyone else now we are financially secure, in proud we give our managers time, a lot of fans are fuming at moment and I understand we are awful at the moment, this is a big transition on the pitch, but it will come good, I pridicted this would happen but I did not expect that last night, but can't blame Koeman for tactics when players could not pass the ball 5 yards or simple defending, holding the ball up, that's the players.
Koeman is at fault for not improving on the teams balance and understanding, I think the next 5 games will tell us a awful lot more of where we are as a group, Lookman needs to be involved either starting or coming of the bench, he has pace, and scares defenders would make all the difference only need to go past one player and space developes.




11 Sep 2017 16:12:43
I hope there are still some fans out there that are realistic, but are being patient at the same time, yes it was not great against Spurs but I will judge us when we are 12-15 prem games in, people still forget we're a new team with koeman into his 2nd season, and I would of taken 7th start of last season and he has done brilliant in 12 months to turn the squad into quality and stripped away the dead wood, so this is his team now, we have a great squad age and let's not forget we have Coleman and Bolasie to come back at the moment we don't have that striker we would like but if we couldn't get 1st or 2nd option then I don't want one.


1.) 11 Sep 2017 16:33:20
At last a level headed post which is absolutely spot on Truebluemetz79. Especially about the striker. When the right one is available we'll get him. No point getting someone just for the sake of it. Koeman said himself it you don't get your 1st, 2nd or even 3rd choice player for a certain position it makes it much more difficult to get a right fit or any player for that matter.

2.) 11 Sep 2017 17:24:52
The only thing that gets me, most of us new Rom was going last season so why not have a list of names for a replacement? a big mistake, think it going long winter mates.

{Ed025's Note - ronnie put all his eggs in one basket stig, he thought giroud was nailed on and by the time he said no there was little time left to get a quality replacement, that was a major faux pas by him and walsh and it will cost us big time i feel mate..

3.) 11 Sep 2017 17:45:35
Ya never know. Niasse could be our forgotten hero. Clutching at straws but he knows where the goal is. occasionally.
Maybe one of the youth set up may get a chance and dcl looks a good player.

4.) 12 Sep 2017 10:27:19
The issue these days is football is under a microscope 24/ 7, with the press and the likes of Sly sports, talk sport etc bringing news and rumours to us every minute of the day. They want air time and to sell stories however truthful its how they make money.
The pressure of this means opinion is often divided and clubs cannot be underperforming and jobs are ultimately the supreme sacrifice.
After the euphoria of what appears to be a great transfer window for us, the knives are out as appears at early stages that it is not as good as first seems. Unfortunately the No1 a striker has not happened and is the most ridiculous situation have.
But let's not also forget we have a very difficult first 6 games and shortcoming will and are being punished!
We have no options now till January so the manager will have to work out how to get the best of what he has until then!

5.) 12 Sep 2017 14:22:09

Too be honest I don't think he was ever given a first chance but what a decent guy, all the talk on how others treated our club and we gave them everything, this guy basically had everything taken away from him and here he is just wanting to play football. I hope he gets a good career with or without us.


{Ed002's Note - His problem has been settling and nothing more. Clubs were willing to give him a chance and the likes of Chelsea, Lille, Spurs, Manchester United and Newcastle all looked before Everton bit. If Everton can get him settled then they do indeed have a very good squad players on their hands.}

Basically Spurs can't pay him the wages he would want due to there structure when they move into the new ground it will change but as I said before 12 months in football is a long time and Spurs will need to do something this season to keep players like Alli Kane there top 4 is not certain and I think they will not make it this year due to Wembley factor, I know it gets talked about but there home form was excellent last season and I don't see them getting same points at Wembley this season.

Sorry no, perhaps Ed might know a bit more about the player, but I hope we're putting huge buy out clauses in them as the way the market is going it will become the norm, it's average players going for 30/ 40 million, this is what these mega rich owners come in for and the market will grow and grow. big profits turning over on players like lookman bought for £10m let's just say he is squad player still in a coulple of years his value will be possible 30/ 40 million could be even more and no mater what people think about Chelsea when they started buying people that were never going to play, it is a business module everyone is doing now.

I don't think it is, we blasted Rooney when he left us but the fee he got for us at the time was massive at a time when we were well short of money, i'm Barkleys biggest fan but I feel he is messing us around, first of all he turns down our contract offer where he is loved by fans, now the champions offer him everything a footballer could want for what a move to Spurs that basically don't want him that much as there not interested in him. I hope he is happy as he has done everything wrong and it's his fault not the agents. He should think about that tonight his career is going horribly wrong.

Welbeck is not a striker we need, good player but would still struggle for goals,
Playing 3 CB and 2 defensive CM is a no no for me and then we wonder why we have nothing uptop.
Time to go back to 4 at back and play either sniederlen or idrissa not both, maybe against teams where we need to but not games where we should be attacking teams.

I agree, normally I would like to see a few changes but this is a game we can't loose, we need some confidence going into the game with Bournemouth as they are no mugs, clean sheet would be good as well, confidence is one thing money can't buy.
An early goal would be nice to get fans onside otherwise if it gets to 30/ 40mins the crowd will get nervous.

I think when he said all he meant majority, and I'm one that's backing him, we all raved when after Martinez first season and ended up with same fans slating him in the end, were Everton and we back are managers not call for there head after 5 games, if we sack Koeman now then that will be the start of our soul going from Everton.

It's one thing to be a u23 manager or assistant manager to being the main man, stats show that as there are not many that have made that transition, and that is not too imply Unsworth is not up too the job.
But Koeman is the man he will turn it around if in 4 or 5 games we don't see any improvement in performance and results then it needs to be looked at but this was a very difficult start for a team that needed time, but now is the time to get behind them more than ever and build some confidence going into the next 5 fixtures Bournemouth Burnley and Brighton are our next 3 prem games with a game against Sunderland and a Euro game. No games a gimme but the mood could be very different after that.
