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.

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.




31 Aug 2015 14:27:09
Nearly into last 24 hours and nothing I have a feeling it's either a marquee signing and it's been kept quiet then I woke up and it will be Lennon for 5m


1.) 31 Aug 2015 16:38:40
Lennon for 5m, I'd take that in a heart beat. Not overly bothered if we don't sign anyone else. No point buying just for the sake of it.

When MOSHIRI took over I heard him give interview on radio forgot where I listened to it, but I remember one thing he was talking about that stood out and that was "There was never a better time too invest in a premier league club than now but you have to make your move now"
I think the guy was right this top group of clubs look vulnerable I don't look at any signings they have made so far that makes me go wow or makes them any better than last season, maybe cause I'm enjoying our transfer window, but if this group of players can click then I think we'll find we're a threat to all of them.

Chelsea- very noisy in the window looks like they got Morata but was he there top target, Terry leaving that will feel strange day to day stuff.

Tottenham- playing at Wembley with champions league could be too much for them too replicate last 2 seasons, not much experience there but can't deny they are a good team

Man City- spending like they do but are they actually any better than 5 years ago

Liverpool- I like klopp he's a proper manager don't know how much more he can get out of some of those players but he's been brought into win trophies end off 3rd season now so he is under pressure as all are.

Arsenal- top striker brought in, he will score goals and I think they will get back in top 4 this season

Man Utd- Rooney gone, zlatan not available till next year
Lukaku will score goals but what I saw from them last year was not impressive and if mourinho was not there they would not be in champions league and probably not of won the cups

So bring it on I say nothing to fear any more we can go into these big games and stand toe to toe with them.


1.) 20 Jul 2017 22:59:43
i predict a bad season for spurs; wembley is a notoriously heavy pitch to play on with several problems reported with the playing surface, over the last couple of years add to that the atmosphere change white hart lane is a similar ground to goodison with fans used to being in they're favoured spots close to the pitch and with this gone the whole change will affect spurs' intensity on the pitch. imo no doubt by christmas they will have one or two fatigue problems from playing regular on such a large and heavy pitch and if this is with any of their key players they will be ruing the decision to move there.



13 Jul 2017 20:08:31
Absolutely no cents what people are saying about sigurdsson valuation let's base this on what we would get with a £45m fee
27 year old proven in prem last season was double figures goals and assists let's say he is signed on a 4 year deal that is just over £11m a season for a player just hitting peak age ok there would not be a profit but then that probably apples to all player that age
How many points did he win Swansea last year or year before, some signings need to be made that are ready made not potential now ready to go, I don't care about paying 10m more that what we should let moshiri worry about that
Man City just about to buy walker a RB for 50m
We all wanted our club to be able to compete financially well now we are
Mersey Millionaires are back.




10 Jul 2017 20:16:37
I know it's a long shot but what about us getting costa on loan till January no return at Chelsea Athletico Madrid agrees deal for January and he gets chance to put one over on conte
Everyone's a winner.


{Ed025's Note - good shout that mate..

1.) 10 Jul 2017 20:50:10
I've been thinking about that one too but thought I'd get shot down in flames for suggesting it lol. He's mad as a hatter but would score some goals.

2.) 10 Jul 2017 20:50:34
Why not buy him still have change from rom.

{Ed025's Note - he wants athletico in january mate..

3.) 10 Jul 2017 20:52:16
He would get goals but do we want his attitude in our camp?

4.) 10 Jul 2017 21:19:41
Not much point for me. We had Eto'o for six months and he caused all sorts of problems, plus we'd then have to adjust in Jan when someone else is up front.

Giroud would be my choice up front.

5.) 10 Jul 2017 21:40:54
Yeah but Windsor Blue. Eto'o was a 1000 years old and had a bloke in brown slip on shoes, who thought the sun shone out of his a***. Costa cannot be compared in anyway.
As for this "31" thing. surely the strikers need to "do the business" and get us Champions league so we can then go and buy the sort of striker that we are unable to sign. For now. Risking that on potential is a little fool hardy. We need proven hitmen and frankly 30/ 31 years olds are perfect for 2 years.

6.) 10 Jul 2017 21:48:16
Supposedly costa is a gentleman and extremely funny and everyone in the dressing room loves him. Its only when he plays he changes.

{Ed025's Note - i have never seen the dr jeckyl side ray..only mr hyde.. :)

7.) 10 Jul 2017 23:21:06
Good shout Costa on loan until January, just a pity we did not see this and allow Onyekuru on loan until January, by which time may have had the visa sorted with playing a certain amount of games and if the guy was not ready, well the January window would be open anyway.

8.) 11 Jul 2017 17:54:28
now that would make me have an accident in me pants, hope RK reads this.

9.) 11 Jul 2017 17:56:11
not arsed about his attitude, he's a winner.



09 Jul 2017 22:02:28
Is it me or does Rooney look in good shape, I know he has never looked ripped due to his build but posing in the kit today is the best I've seen him look for a while, anyone who thinks Rooney is coming bag just for emotional connection think again there looks a hunger in his eyes, something to achieve again as he said winning a trophy back here will be the pinnacle in his career that's a huge statement considering what he has one, maybe I'm reading too much into it but he looks like he means business.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 22:53:47
Definitely looks skinnier.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 22:58:36
Apparently he was in the hotel gym 3 times a day on holiday. The lads wiring hard to get in shape to be fair to him, hope we reap the benefits.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 23:02:03
I thought exactly the same metz. He looks in great nick. Without sounding daft, it's like when you see a boxer when they weigh in - you know what shape they're in.

4.) 10 Jul 2017 09:44:32
It looks to me Rooney understands that RK loves a high press so he needed to get in shape so he can fire on day one.



09 Jul 2017 20:17:34
Rom Rom Rom will you ever learn, keep your mouth shut, Man Utd will never be the dominant force they were football has moved on too much, you will know have to do something you failed to do as of yet and at 24 is a concern, can you score goals in big moments in big matches, I can't believe that guy has no class unlike Rooney who has addressed the fans at Utd it costs nothing to say thankyou to the team that gave you everything and now your joining a manager that didn't believe in you.
Says everything when you are sold for massive money but Rooneys free transfer over looks your transfer, luv it.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 21:52:34
I agree, Rom has no class at all, I can't believe he has said I have to work harder! Also it's about the team at utd. soooooo, at everton it was about you and you admit to being lazy!
Oh and by the way Rom, you are welcome for giving you a platform that few are lucky enough to experience.

I feel bit sorry for the guy, I know he is not good enough for what we need but he was hardly given a chance and I can think of several players that were here for 2/ 3 seasons who never impressed, and I can't say I've seen enough of him to say weather he is any good but scored some goals on loan at hull in prem.
So I do think we have to take a loss on him but that loss needs to be as minimum as possible don't forget it's business.
I do hope he finds a club plays and does well as he seems like he has conducted him self well throughout unlike a player who has so much talent a great platform to play his football and fans that loved him sorry Ross but your being mis guided.

To be honest I have only seen one official bid and that was us £40m I think Leicester was paper talk.
It's just a matter of time now to deal is done, especially after he was omitted from pre season tour. He is our next signing. Over weekend or early next week.
It's going to perfect all these player in already with plenty of chance to work as a squad.

Definitely best summer as a Everton fan who would of thought we would be where we are now a season and half ago.
The structure of club is great now new money stadium on the way just need to get rid of kit bag deal.

I'm from Bristol
Season ticket holder so only cause I'm up there a lot I can visit store otherwise I'd have to buy online.
My family don't even know how I become a fan but as I keep saying EVERTONIANS ARE BORN NOT MANUFACTURED.

Keane would be my choice as I think VVD is not an option for 2 reasons due to competition from other clubs and could take all summer to get a deal done and we don't want to be left in limbo, so getting Keane is a must, and see where we are in January who knows we could be in with a shout of getting him then or following summer depending on us being in champions league places and him staying at Southampton.
As for gray I would buy at right price and like the chap said he scored 9 goals for a team that did not create or score a lot, listen he know some where the net is so he will get more chances him and Sandro for est 10-20 million is bargain business.

The reports saying Lukaku knows where he is going is missing one vital point No Bid accepted yet and if it's done why not announce it like the other pre contracts, Rom there is no need to talk about your so called next club until the time you need to learn to handle media better cause when you go for big money, you'll need to do it in biggest games also don't forget if it is Chelsea, there the same team who said your not good enough, thanks for the goals and good luck you won't score 25 prem goals next year mate not there as you will be rotated.

I'm not I still want a physical presence to replace Lukaku not necessarily to start every week but just to change things when we need to,
Personally I think Benteke could get 15-20 goals in this team.
Benteke was never right for the rubbish over the park they don't cross the ball.

Don't read anything into pre season games other than fitness levels, it's madness to look at the result
Spurs beat PSG last night but I bet you any money you want they do better than Spurs in champions league, all I'm interested in is that we get a win in the Europa qualifier as sometimes there are shocks when you play a competition early and that come the stoke game we're ready fitness wise.

Don't get bogged down with stats like that as I don't for one minute believe that if Lukaku was not there last season we would of finished 7th, I know stats don't lie but it's just coincidence that his 24 goals did not have same impact as Kane's, you only look at that now he has left. He's gone and we're moving forward and we don't have to play a game that are to Lukaku strengths, Sandro will be a right handful bit like costa is he will run and stretch defenders so I think we will play very different to what we have seen for while.

Absolutely spot on, price is irrelevant in today's market and I've noticed why all of a sudden more and more football fans are saying other clubs paying too much when this has been going on for years, I can't believe for the first time as an Everton fan my mates are saying we're paying over the odds or buying too many players. This is just a normal reaction, its because we're a threat to the usual clubs, and it shows, few years ago it was top 4, then when Man Utd weren't getting in it, then it was top 6 now all of a sudden Everton have power there saying it's top 7,
Look how much money they all through at it and none of them are any better than 5 or 6 years ago. My point is all these clubs have had millions of pounds of players that wer flops, I think we're spending wisely and looking at our squad are we really that far behind those other clubs.

I agree blue heart I think there is too much pressure on barkley as it was down too him to create everything and better players around him will help, I noticed when Morgan plays barkley performs, I want him to stay but if he wants to go he will be making a big mistake in his career.
