Mangala will be a great signing just what we need a big strong defender with pace, well done Allardyce
We should now start to climb the table, the team is now looking better balanced especially with the injured players coming back.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 18:01:12
Totally agree Uren, we've now got players in weak positions, we have players coming back, good win tonight and let wallcot show arsenal what there missing at the weekend.



04 Aug 2017 14:33:47
Koeman changed his formation, Jags was brilliant, Pickford a steel at 30mil
They all played well enough but still not convincing enough in the final third, crying out quality up front, Koeman looked a worried man, well done to the two Unsworth Kids.




28 Jul 2017 09:27:03
It's very clear that Koeman has wanted Sigurdson from the start, So you can only blame the person on the board for delaying the purchase creating unnecessary stress on the player and all concerned they will have to pay the 50mil that is made clear from Swansea and I believe they will pay the full amount but it could of been done weeks ago, I am sure Everton will not be selling Barkley on the cheap or McCarthy, just get the deal done and move on.


1.) 28 Jul 2017 10:25:13
Uran you're very negative today. What's wrong. Have you missed breakfast. Do you need a snicker.

2.) 28 Jul 2017 11:06:49
It would be negligent not to try and get the best deal. We have brought in a few signings. I'm sure the board will take your advice plus
Inforce corporal punishment and sort that clown who's only brought in 8 players. Our season is definitely over after our 1st compeditive game in july :) The click will happen give it more the 90 mins.

3.) 28 Jul 2017 11:26:23
So basically you are saying, just pay any extortionate rate they ask Without a fight? . Not how its done Sorry an well done Everton an board for a fantastic transfer window.

4.) 28 Jul 2017 11:48:54
Ok we will see what price we have to pay probably 49.99m well done.

5.) 28 Jul 2017 12:20:27
hahah bloody eck not even a month into the window, be nice getting players in early but sometimes got to think business matters, sig will probably drag on due to the fact you obviously try get the best deal, just because we have the money doesn't mean we have to spend it all Christ tonight chill out.

6.) 28 Jul 2017 13:19:41
Couldn't of put it better myself kiddamick.

7.) 28 Jul 2017 14:06:44
I see a lot of people complaining that they aren't happy about the way the sigurdson deal is progressing! They fail to realise it's Swansea moving the goalposts here!
If we had owned with £50m I would bet my house on them saying the want £65m this deal was never going to be cheap or quick because of his value to them
It's how business is done
And as for people moaning about the performance last night so what it's a win! It will take a few games but we will get there
So far I'm very happy with our business and I've no doubt by 1st league game we will be looking good!
Last night wasn't the best performance but with games I think most of new boys can force their was as regulars!
Sandro looked like he can really step up this year and I think once the first one goes in the goals will flow!
Martina was decent and between him and holgate and maybe Kenny I think until Coleman returns we will be fine
Keane showed some moments of class and pace too it's hard to gauge from last night but I think our opening five games are perfect to get him up and running! The best defenders thrive off the big games and I remember last year against city he outpaced and outmuscled aguero a number of times so the tools are there hopefully the big start brings the best out in him
Klaasen well decent but unspectacular last night but TBH that cm spot is a tough one to look good in when u consider the quality he is next to! Evertonians even in recent times are used to having standout players in there think Cahill, Guedes, arteta etc so our expectations are often higher for these positions but give him time he will be sound
And Rooney well TBH he shouldn't need talking up he will me massive for us this season.

8.) 28 Jul 2017 15:40:12
Good post FastestCakeInTheWorld.

9.) 28 Jul 2017 16:03:56
I could not disagree more with your post regarding Swansea moving goal posts. I live in Swansea. they have stated the same price from day 1, which has not changed. You don't go into Tesco and haggle do you. We know the price so just pay it!

10.) 28 Jul 2017 16:54:26
Uran, I could not agree more my friend. This deal should have been sorted long time ago. The purpose of pre season is to get the team for and new players bedded in with the new team mates and systems etc. Sigi is not going to be a bench warmer line Rooney he will run the show and if stated he was RK no 1 target just get the deal sorted.

Swansea are not messing us about they have given a price so we must match it not go cheap on a few million which is pocket change today. If full backs are going for 50 million then a proven creative dead ball specialist is worth it. just get it sorted.

11.) 28 Jul 2017 17:28:07
Thank You Rich I thought I was alone on this one.

12.) 28 Jul 2017 17:51:15
Unless you have been Sat in meeting after meeting at Swansea how can you possibly know! But based on the things being leaked in media etc then If you go back about 5/ 6 weeks Swansea were asking 40mil now it's 50m that is moving goalposts!
Personally I think he is worth £50m in today's market so I do agree we should just pay it! But on the other hand if it was another club that was chasing him that hadn't just spent what we had then we would get him for £40m
And I don't blame Swansea either as they are making a good business decision!

13.) 29 Jul 2017 03:19:30
you can auction a player between 2 clubs or more, but if only 1 club is wanting him, you can, t just keep raising the price, or maybe this is a Welsh thing. Con the English.



08 Mar 2017 07:56:18
Paper talk this morning over Michael Keane of Burnley, very good defender but would prefer Harry Maguire of Hull.


1.) 08 Mar 2017 09:12:32
I have to be honest, I'm not 100% convinced on Keane or Gibson, especially for the figures quoted. I understand it's not my money and that prices have inflated, but if Keane or Gibson were Spanish or French etc, then would you want to be paying 25 for their services? I believe they are just the 'best' of an average bunch of British CBs and would rather a better foreigner for the same fee (I don't know who though) I know we received, in my opinion, an over inflated fee on Stones, but thay doesn't mean we have to follow suit.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 10:38:51
I like Keane and Gibson. Remind me of your John Terrys and Gary Cahills of this game. Rugged and will put there boot or head on the ball to clear it. They are the basic stand out performers in there respected teams and with better players around them, they will become far better players. I know I wouldn't have my heart in my mouth if Gibson was on the ball as opposed to Funes Mori.

3.) 08 Mar 2017 20:13:14
Koulibaly was going to be around the £40/ £50M mark at least Keane and Gibson have premier league experience and as someone else pointed out they are standouts in their respective teams. I think either would be a good investment or even both.

4.) 09 Mar 2017 09:42:37
I would like to see RK give some of our current crop of young lads a bit of game time just to see if they can cut the mustard in the PL we know Holgate has a great future but maybe some of the youngsters are just as good. Its a real shame Galloway's loan hasn't turned out to what we hoped. If both Pennington and Browning can progress to the 1st team we save a bit of cash for SW to unearth another gem.

5.) 09 Mar 2017 20:27:58
Not sure if we still hold any interest but I think Webster at Ipswich was mentioned by one of the Eds back in Jan.
One of my mates who is a Forest fan said there is talk we may be interested in their Worrall who he said is class, have any Eds heard anything?

6.) 10 Mar 2017 13:24:40
Koulibaly was quoted at 40-50 mill cos he's class lad, you get what you pay for. Saying keane and gibson have prem experience is invalid, look at gabbiadini for southampton, no prem experience but is bangin the goals in for fun an just won player of the month award. look at diego costa, aguero, kante, the list is endless.

Jags had no prem experience an look at how he blossomed for us over the years, same as other players we bought from overseas the likes of pienaar an fellaini. don't get me wrong they r good players keane an gibson but earlier posters are right in that they r just standout players in average teams.



25 Jan 2017 20:44:36
It looks to me that Delaney will be our next signing


1.) 25 Jan 2017 20:49:03
Not this season. He's played for 2 teams this season so cannot now play for another.

2.) 25 Jan 2017 21:52:57
If so then why have we made as bid for him?

3.) 25 Jan 2017 22:23:45
He played for them at the weekend so the bid Was before then. No point trying again until next window.

4.) 25 Jan 2017 22:26:01
The Lad was given his debut after Everton bid for him which then disqualified him from playing for another club this season. I think he's played for FC Copenhagen and now Werder Bremen. the report I read suggest we will revisit this transfer in the summer.

{Ed025's Note - i think you may be right AL..

27 Jul 2018 06:42:10
Unfortunately games like this one are not for us the supporters to get excited about, its for the manager to assess the players In the squad and then he has to manager the situation, that's what is being paid for. He has already stated he would like 5 or 6 new recruits and now you can see why, he knows everything he wants to know now before the season starts, so in so many ways the defeat last night for me was An excellent result.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 10:46:24
defeat was an excellent result for yourself - the travelling fans last night deserved better plain and simple - to be rolled over by blackburn was not acceptable - yes we know the team would be not at full strength last night and yes we should have scored but to be honest it was embarassing and diabolical at times.

We have been chasing according to the papers a couple of defenders for a week or so - get them in or move on I say. instead we splash millions on a player who by all accounts had a good game last night when we have plenty of players for this position.

I hear the same story everytime we get a new manager - will take time, its a project, a few transfer windows will be needed etc but if Silva does not get off to a good start the knives will be out unfortunately - that's football - a result business I am afraid.

2.) 27 Jul 2018 14:10:27
Pavillion, you already have the knives out, every deal that doesn't happen, every bad result, albeit a friendly, you are here with your negativity!
Of course it's a project and it will take time, that's what usually happens with a change of manager, we just have to be patient and believe that the board has learnt from the mistakes of last year. If you expect free flowing football from the off then I think your expectations need to be reassessed. It took Pep a year at City even with the quality they have!



04 Mar 2018 07:17:08
Lost for words after that second half performance
How can Allardayce substitute Sigurdsson? And leave Martina on, help me someone as I don't understand logic anymore.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 07:55:31
YOU do.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 08:43:23
I actually thought Martina was ok again. I thought it was our central 2 that were very poor again. Keane and Williams just cannot play together. Both have a mistake in them and both Burnley goals were a direct result from poor center half decisions added to having a short goalkeeper again. Pickford is amazing at shot stopping but we have conceded time and time again this season from corners and free kicks. Conversely, we have the best set piece taker in the league in Siggy, yet we take corner after corner and free kick after free kick and never seem to score ourselves. Statistically we now have the worst defence in the Premiership. so it is obvious where we need to improve. stop leaking goals! Jags is past it, but better than Williams and Keane by a mile. Holgate is young but does not seem to make the mistakes those 2 do. So rather than focussing on Martina, I would change to Jags and Holgate immediately. I would also want another center half signing next window first anf foremost. Against teams like Burnley who lump it forward in the air and focus on set pieces I would have Robles in. He is tall enough to come and claim the ball. Pickford is rooted to the spot nearly every time. Van Dijk got one the same. The 2nd Burnley goal was within Pickford's 3 yard area. (but yes Williams and Keane were out manouvered) . andI amsure we have conceded many more this way in similar fashion. It is basic stuff and we should be doing better.

3.) 04 Mar 2018 09:13:44
degsy we missed out on an old fashioned centre half in harry maguire.

4.) 04 Mar 2018 10:24:46
So your happy that the left half of the pitch is left wide open because Martina hasn't got a clue what he is doing.
How you thought he played ok is baffling. It's like watching a five year old in a school game.

5.) 04 Mar 2018 10:27:47
Martina was torn to pieces by Lennon, poor positional play as well, not his fault as he isn't even a good RB let alone a LB.

6.) 04 Mar 2018 10:38:57
Degsy, I would also suggest giving Robles a run in place of Pickford.

There is some support for bringing in Baines and Mori. Think to bring in both together would be a risk as both have been out long time with injury and need to work back to full match fitness, but put one in certainly now, maybe Mori in place of Williams having Jags on the bench ready.

Would put Williams top of the players list to depart this summer. He has let the club down badly many times this season and should certainly not wear the captains armband. That should go to Coleman.

Having Sam and Koeman as managers and both being defenders I fail to understand why they haven’t been able to mould a good defensive pairing. Is this all down to players not being good enough or poor coaching or lack of it.

Yesterday, it would have been obvious that Burnley would come out second half to get early equaliser and Everton should have been prepared for it.

Personally I don’t think the manager is bothered one way or the other on performance or results as I think he expects to go this summer or earlier and will collect his money owed.

Artefacts is raising a lot of interest. Due to his lack of managerial experience would it not be a good idea to get him in as assistant to the new manager with a view to being appointed manager in the future. Or is that not the way these days.

7.) 04 Mar 2018 11:22:31
Martina got torn a new one by Lennon all game Degs. Playing him and Williams in the same team is like starting with 9 men and opposing teams target them as our weak links.
Can't see what dropping Pickford for Robles would achieve, unless we want to concede even more per game. He has been one of our better performers thus far.

8.) 04 Mar 2018 11:31:32
Martina would not be playing in the Premiership or the Championship league for any team as he is simply not Good enough, how anyone can say he played OK baffles me.
Once Allardyce has the balls to address this problem then we could start to improve
6 million a year hard to swallow.

9.) 04 Mar 2018 13:56:10
I have to agree with some of the above, if anyone thinks Martina played well or is good enough for us then it is a very low bar they are setting.
Holgate is better than Keane and Williams and has been every time he has played so for me gets in the team every week.
Mori wasn't brilliant before his injury but as bad as he was, I haven't seen Keane have a good game for a while now. If Jags was fit I would have him and holgate until the end of the season.
Baines and Coleman (Coleman as captain)

10.) 04 Mar 2018 21:25:22
In response. no Martina is definately not good enough. Anyone can see that. But whilst I agree that Lennon gave him a torrid time. neither of the 2 goals we conceded came from Martina mistakes. Both goals came from mistakes between Keane, Williams and Pickford. The 1st goal. Keane was flat footed and Pickford should have been quickly off his line. The 2nd goal was a straight corner in. Nothing special yet both Keane and Williams lost their respective players they were marking. Pickford was rooted to the spot and the Burnley player headed in from about 3 yards out. A position that a taller keeper could have either punched clear or even possibly caught the ball. This has happened numerous times this season. Martina is not a left back so to criticise him is unfair. Koeman signed no left footers so Sig and Martina play on the left when they are both right footed.

{Ed025's Note - i tend to agree degsy..

11.) 04 Mar 2018 22:05:07
I wouldn't criticise Martina for the Burnley goals but he isn't good enough for us either at left or right back we need better.

Degsy i'm not sure which goal you watched when you say he could have saved it if he was taller. Burnleys 2nd goal was headed down to Pickfords right so why would he have saved it if he was taller?



02 Mar 2018 14:38:21
Allardyce has to Drop Cuco Martina for the Burnley game surely we could play any of our midfielder in this position and pose more attacking threat, Liverpool have done it with Milner and United with Young, Cuzco is not even a good defender he needs to be more ruthless in that position anyway he has failed in my opinion
We need to create a better balance in the team and I see this must be the first step.


1.) 02 Mar 2018 15:00:56
baines back in the squad this weekend pal if not fit then we have garbutt on the bench no need for more square pegs in round holes.

2.) 02 Mar 2018 15:03:41
Defo wblue mate we don't want to mess with team that would be stupid.

3.) 02 Mar 2018 16:32:01
Garbutt is a square peg.

4.) 02 Mar 2018 16:41:34
So are a lot of the Team mate.

5.) 02 Mar 2018 18:00:50
Let's put pickford at LB and Joel in goal. Would be interesting.

6.) 02 Mar 2018 20:55:25
You could do a lot worse Smit666 😂😂.

7.) 02 Mar 2018 23:03:56
We have too many square pegs when what we really need is lego, if we are to continue the children's toy metaphor. Garbutt hasn't been considered a peg of any description by 3 managers now, so I don't think we should get our hopes up about a LB saviour waiting in the wings. At best, he's ranked as an amorphous Everton blob, like playdough, along with Klassen, Sandro, Lookman, Vlasic and apparently Tosun.

8.) 03 Mar 2018 09:36:03
I think there is only one or two left footers in the whole squad. That's half the problem. Attacking wise, Sigs tries his best on the left, but it is all too predictable. so we only have a right sided attack. The opposition only have to stop our right. the left is almost non existant. and thinking about it. without Coleman, the right is pretty poor too! How did we end up with this unbalanced squad? This goes back to Martinez and Koeman. I don't think the manager helps with his comments admittedly. but the squad is full of under achievers, kids who are like rabbits in headlights (but do try their hardest) and a load of right footers trying to play on the left. We lost too many quality players over the last 6 years and didn't replace them with good top quality ones in the right positions. How bad we would be if Rooney had not decided he wanted one lat go in the Blue shirt!



28 Feb 2018 11:16:26
Can't believe Walsh is still in a job after all the duds he has scouted and sanctioned to buy
Everton must have more money than since to keep paying him a wage.


{Ed025's Note - im with you mate..

1.) 28 Feb 2018 11:58:18
Remember, he nearly tanked 30 mill on sissoko aswell.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 12:03:20
We have a lot of deadwood at the club mate, Moshiri needs to sort this out.

3.) 28 Feb 2018 12:07:33
I sort of understand where you're coming from, however, i'm not sure who is a bad player that he has scouted. All those that came in under his tenure from Gana onwards are good if not excellent footballers, that not one of us turned our noses at. However, they have played with very negative minded Managers whose man management is nothing short of appalling (RK + SA ) . For me they are players with the right Manager could be moulded into an excellent team, and I include the likes of Sandro and Klassen who have not had a look in but have certainly been so mis managed and still are being mis managed its unbelieveable.

4.) 28 Feb 2018 12:40:05
Good post Howie. I think we are writing some of them off too soon. Although I’m not sure how they are meant to improve without any game time. Hopefully that’ll change once we hit the magic 40.

5.) 28 Feb 2018 12:43:43
Spot on Howie, we have no idea how good or bad they are untill given a chance to show what they can do under the proper circumstances.

6.) 28 Feb 2018 13:28:48
I think we are judging too soon aswell. We bought a boat load of attacking players for 2 managers who don't play attacking football.



04 Feb 2018 13:54:19
The bottom line is apart from Coleman and Walcott the whole squad have no legs to compete at this level, we always seem half yard of the play, this problem has been obvious for sometime, it's not an Allardyce problem but his team selection does baffle me especially changing the centre backs, just need to get this season over, off load most of them and start again.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 14:17:01
Uran I’ve said for a long time our team needs a massive overhaul. Also think our version of DoF and manager relationship is messed up. And as said further down if we don’t get this right no manager will succeed.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 15:58:26
Bolasie, Vlasic, Calvert Lewin and Lookman all have pace, yet one was rushed back, one gets played out of position and then dropped, one gets shipped out on loan and the other finds himself behind Niasse! This is an Allardyce problem, add to that Klassen who may not be lightning quick but has the speed none the less. An attack minded manager would of had Lookman and Walcott supporting the striker played Sigurdsson as No 10 and put Klassen next to Gueye as a box to box midfielder as he has a good range of passing, I don't get paid millions to set up a rubbish team like Allardyce but we have decent players yet he doesn't utilise them and tries to shut up shop with piss poor centre backs! Pay him off now send him and his leeches packing and bring in a manager to take us forward even if we have a caretaker until the summer when Fonseca is available. For the last 12 games pick a season ticket number at random and give a fan a chance to pick the team and formation, even the kids in the family enclosure couldn't do any worse than the mushy pea eating gravy drinking fat joke.

We should be counting our blessings that we are not in the bottom three, stop having ago at Allardyce it was worse under Koeman and would be no different under a new manager tomorrow, just need to survive this season and then hope to rebuild in the summer.

Had a good look at Joe Bryan last night, he looks a decent player but I thought he could of been stronger against Walker that lead to City's second goal just before half time, probably better than what we have at this moment but maybe we should set our standards a bit higher, at 5 mil could be worth taking a risk, looks very athletic and comfortable on the ball and he is Left footed!
