I don't see where our next win is coming from to be honest I think we are in as much mess as we have been for last 3 seasons just a different manager in charge, I know he is ex reds but go get Rafa he is world class manager, we won't get anyone has good as him in our situation without champions league.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 09:06:32
i said the same before we appointed silva.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 12:29:47
The first thing that should be done is to ditch the zonal marking system he using then I think we will start to see better defending.



27 Jan 2019 23:04:05
Easy to make comments after the manager has not worked out the best we could of got this season was 7th and a good cup run, ok out of cup but 7th is still achievable but for me it's important next 15 games of season as will set tone for summer and new season we can't keep sacking managers.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 09:08:51
We can’t keep appointing poor managers either.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 09:20:08
Good sensible post mate, too many knee jerk reactions on here, by the way some write I don't think they would be happy with any manager, he has to have time and I am sure the Club will give him it.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 11:46:14
A manager has to show he can coach a side and improve players at his disposal. Also he has to motivate and irrespective of results these things can be seen by most supporters.
Sadly none of these things are showing under the present manager and they should be visible within a few short months. Yes time to win trophies and challenge at the top but not long for there to be signs of improvement.
Look to Man U, total change in the team right away.
So Guernsey cannot exept what your saying in anyway.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 16:57:03
Who would you have as manager then dark clouds.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 18:03:49
Well Maureen's free at present GB. Think she would come till the end of the season?

{Ed025's Note - i cant think of a worse candidate nick..

6.) 28 Jan 2019 18:30:13
Yeah right mate.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 20:41:11
its not about finishing 7th its about the quality of football and being entertained, if silva is still manager for next season i for one will not be renewing my season ticket after 32 years.

8.) 28 Jan 2019 20:54:35
Bad managers who do okay elsewhere. Maybe we are the problem? Might be me but something gone wrong with heart and sole of playing side of club. Watched prog on Sunderland other day and some scary similarities.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 10:52:15
Asked who I would have as manager, not easy I admit but quite fancy Arteta, he knows the club and did want the job in the summer.
I exept that a good coach which he must be to be right hand to Pep at City does not allways make a good manager but no manager comes without risk anyway.
He lives in the area and knows what Evertonians want, he must be a good shout.
I like the look of Lampard at Derby but it is early days in his management career.

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.

Just listened to Everton podcast from Thursday and they were almost having a moan about lack of incomings saying there was no excuses as no World Cup, don't they realise the copa America has just finished and Brands is a big fan of those players, also there is still a month to go and transfer window has not really got going yet.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 07:16:37
I switched it off half way through mate it was embarrassing.



06 Jul 2019 12:20:59
I hear a lot about Pickford on this site about wanting to move on, where has this come from and where possibly would he go anyway, teams in the prem certainly ones above us in top 6 are not looking for no 1 unless someone is sold, only clubs I can see is spurs but don't see them spending that on a GK has its not a priority.
Man Utd possibly if De Gea is sold and are Man Utd really a step up at this moment in time.


1.) 06 Jul 2019 12:56:34
If you read all the rubbish being printed right now then we have ten leaving and four coming in. When the only people who really know what is going on are Silva and Brands. I used to quite enjoy the transfer window, but now it just bores me. Should have one window per season. Might stop all these greedy agents and players from chasing the cash half way through a season just because the team they are in are not playing well.

2.) 06 Jul 2019 16:15:53
WB think it would be better wihout a window, like it used to be, buy any time though the season but no signings after March, got lots of surprises in those, days, Kendal, Ball, Pickering a few of many.

3.) 06 Jul 2019 17:44:14
Only danger there bl is nobody would play a full season for anyone😂.



02 Jul 2019 15:19:06
We have been hear before i know but I really do think we are ready to have a great season, previous summers have always been hopeful than realistic but there are so many positives this summer like are form towards end of season, beating top 6 teams, recruitment policy is good, really do have a sense of direction and purpose in our play, just hope we can ship as much dead wood as possible over next 2 windows.




01 Jun 2019 19:37:09
So according to some fans on here we need a striker who can score 20+goals does not mind not playing in champions league and no other top teams around Europe want, i don't see why that's so difficult to get done, the list must be long.
We need to be realistic.


1.) 01 Jun 2019 23:40:43
Well to be fair, we do need exactly that. But I agree it’s unrealistic. As I’ve said in the past. It’s harder to keep a 20 goal a season striker than it is to find one. So if we can’t get one then we need a three/ four pronged attack who can each get into double figures. So Bernard needs to step up, as does DCL.

Having said that they both did well for us last season. So if these two improve and we get a similar return from Richalerson and Sigurdsson then the future looks good.

2.) 03 Jun 2019 12:05:44
The only realistic target with PL experience that comes close to 20 goals a season is Vardy.



18 Mar 2019 15:06:06
Let's give Silva some credit after 2 years we beat a top 6 team 2nd half was great just a shame we didn't beat Newcastle last week otherwise we would be on a decent run.


1.) 18 Mar 2019 20:18:06
Well said mate.

2.) 20 Mar 2019 20:12:56
Second half Chelsea were crap.

{Ed025's Note - were they crap shakey?, or did how well we played just make them look that way mate?..

Very hard for club to attract the top players but I do think the closer the stadium becomes a reality then this will help us but it’s 3 years away and from a players point of view there is nothing to see and likely not even play in it, can't wait for it to get started.

For 8m take that, not statement signing by any means but shrewd signing.

Why would we look to sell Pickford, Gk value has gone through the roof recently we would only have to spend all that to probably get some one that is not as good, Pickford value will not be dropping any time soon.

I agree I think top 4 is as open as it’s ever been Man City Liverpool are way ahead but like you said problems for a lot of clubs and bear in mind spurs lost 20 games in all comps last year and still finished top 4 and champions league final, we look as though we have a direction for the first time, recruitment looks to be right under Brands and Marco.
11/ 1 for top 4 is not bad odds.

We have made a profit but I do hope there is a big sell on as he will light up Germany and playing week in week out will help him.
I have a gut feeling we will be seeing him sold for 70m + in couple of years.

You can’t have planing permission until you submit plans thus why we have not seen designs yet, we will submit later in the year once every single aspect has been looked over which has been happening behind the scenes and all the consultations.

Jesus we have a hero in Duncan Ferguson who was loved, and had as hot a temper as I’ve seen on football pitch.
