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.



17 Jul 2018 22:14:54
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.

What does the lad Henry on loan need to do to get work permit I don't understand the rules.


{Ed002's Note - Assuming you mean Henry Onyekuru, he needs a minimum of four points and summary goes something like this:
- The value of the transfer fee (alone) that is to be paid is between the top 75% and 100% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 3 points
- The value of the transfer fee being paid for the player is between 50% and 75% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 2 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is in the top 25% of the top 30 earners at the club - 3 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is between 50% and 75% of all the top 30 earners at the club - 2 points
- Subjectively, the player’s current club is in a recognised "top" league and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point
- The player’s existing club has played in the group stages or onwards of the Champions League, Europa League or the Copa Libertadores within the last 12 months and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point

It looks to me he scores:
- 0
- 0
- 0
- 1
- 1}

1.) 23 Jan 2019 16:59:23
ed why does it matter how often he plays international football? thanks for the info.

{Ed002's Note - Because the implication is that he is a more "elite" player - else the argument is why does the role not go to one of the existing squad players. Otherwise, clubs will pack their sides with cheap foreign imports - the good old Johny Foreigner.}

2.) 23 Jan 2019 17:12:43
Thanks for the summary breakdown Ed002, much appreciated. I'd always wondered about the work permit rules but never really looked into it. Basically it's not looking particularly good for Onyekuru to attain a work permit for us. I'm sure I recall you saying words to that effect previously.

{Ed002's Note - They vary now and again and these are a complete rewite introduce about three years ago. English clubs can get stuck with players who will never obtain a WP - there is a "special talent" route that can be used as an exception but it was abused by two clubs and the chances of approval are slimmer than they were.}

3.) 23 Jan 2019 19:04:45
Don't suppose there is a special circumstances route to get him? That being we're rubbish and can't score for toffee haha.

{Ed002's Note - I don't see him as a "special talent".}

4.) 23 Jan 2019 19:38:55
thanks ed.

5.) 23 Jan 2019 20:20:40
Watched the lad a few times and good reports from family. Certainly from what I have seen, he is a talent, whether he is special, we may never know. The Premiership can surprise players from across the channel and further afield.

6.) 23 Jan 2019 21:33:21
I think Bjarkster meant special case as in Everton are a special case. In a charity case type way!

7.) 23 Jan 2019 22:17:41
Great insight and explanation of the work permit Ed, in theory then we have more chance of seeing Lord Lucan at Goodison than Onyekuru.

8.) 24 Jan 2019 21:30:18
So he basically won’t ever get a work permit unless we sell him I thought playing regular for international was the key.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry - I have explained the rules.}



19 Jan 2019 22:10:45
I agree that we can't keep splashing cash on players every window in the hope it changes everything and I agree with the club that we must of load lots of players to bring in the quality we need.
What I can't understand is our failure to replace Lukaku with a proven goal scorer which we have had several windows to do this and is something we need to get done this window so that he will be integrated into the side and ready to hit new season running.


{Ed025's Note - i know what you mean metz..

1.) 20 Jan 2019 00:03:24
Someone told me we've spent 250 mil recently to get in this shape that's frightening it it's true.



14 Jan 2019 16:42:16
Lookman looks great ok he may loose it now and again but he has me on the edge of my seat when ever he gets the ball, such a talent and do believe he has the ability to be one of the best players in prem just need to keep playing him so he can develop into that player.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 17:18:31
Yes, keep playing him. Even if he has a few quiet ones he still needs to play regular. Can’t have more quiet ones than Walcott does so what’s to lose?



12 Jan 2019 17:16:57
I know we need quality all over the squad but striker has to be priority and ASAP can be the difference from being a good season or another poor season even though I think we have right people in place now.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 17:55:40
For sure mate but we have to address our leaky defence too.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 17:57:27
The right DoF is in place but powder kept dry on others. 8 points off 18th and 11 points off 6th. First time in 3 Managers first Season we are in bottom half at this stage. We supposedly have better players, playing better football but worse results. So please tell me where is the weakness, are the 11 put out all thick so can't absorb tactics or instructions.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 18:22:40
See where you are coming from dfs mate, as you rightly say we now have Marcel in place so hopefully Marco will have all of his own team in two or three Windows and not half an inherited like he has at the moment, not a five minute job this its going to take time.



23 Dec 2018 21:08:55
Some people needed a reality check and they have had it over last few weeks we are 4/ 5 years of where spurs are and anyone who thought we can compete with top 4/ 5 within a season or 2 were deluded.
That is no excuse to loose 2-6 but we need to be positive get some wins together and access the season in may, we tried going toe to toe with them but we didn't react in the game to there movement that was causing problems even before first goal went in.


1.) 23 Dec 2018 22:58:54
TB can u explain why Leicester and palace win away, but we can't in years.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 23:12:54
You stick to positive I will still to being dark loud merry xmas.

Bit harsh to say he needs to get result against city to save his job but I do think he needs a performance and a sign that we have worked on defending set pieces but then Man City don’t really put ball into box that much from set plays.

Ridiculous I know we have to get rid of a lot of players but not important first team players and certainly not one of the best tacklers in the prem as proven in last 2/ 3 seasons for half the market value.
How do we expect to get rid of the rid of the rest of the crap.

Chances are he is the best we could probably get but don’t think it will happen Utd won’t want to make a loss that’s for sure regardless of form.

Everton is trying to play same way but it’s only enjoyable when there is cutting edge, a end product. Playing hundreds of passes at the back or in the middle of the pitch is not great to see, at least with Martinez there was goals in us and a real threat.
We have a side that can’t defend and don’t know how to score goals.


{Ed025's Note - yeah but besides that..
