Any great team needs a strong spine. Goalkeeper, centre half, strong number 10 and a striker. This is what we need to target, not 9 or 10. But 4 maybe 5 if you want to replace both centre halves. Get this and you have the base to build around it. We have Baines, Coleman (when recovered) . Gana, Scneiderlin and Davies in midfield. Think Lookman will feature more next season so there's six. Bring in a new spine and we have the makings of a very strong team.


1.) 07 May 2017 23:04:40
More or less what I said in a post on the banter page Woburnblue. Strengthen those 4 positions and we will be a force to be reckoned with.

2.) 08 May 2017 01:30:00
Be nice to see any of Keane, Van Dyke, Koulibaly, Sigurdson, Willan Jose, Butland, Pickford, Trippier and Ghezzal at the club. Not all together, but a couple from that list.

3.) 08 May 2017 07:50:14
If Lukaku and Barkley go, we will need the number 10 and number 9 positions filling. Whilst I agree totally about the spine bit and all the points you make, I would add that if those 2 leave, we will lose our top 2 goalscorers. We will also be losing the 2 players with most assists. So we really need to find out asap what Barkley's plan actually is. We also need to make a decision on Lukaku and let him know that under no circumstances is he leaving the club until a replacement is sorted. Same goes for Barkley if he is not signing a new deal. Then we need to get the replacement in ASAP! All the good work done this season needs to be a foundation for next. My fear is the club may suffer unless plans are in place over the next few weeks. Of course as much as Lukaku wants to leave, he still has 2 years contract and most clubs will only sell a player on with 12 months left. It sometimes causes problems keeping an unhappy player (Berahino for example) but I would guess Barkley will be sold quickly because he only has 1 year left. if he does not sign in the next few weeks. Lukaku may prove to be a more drawn out saga. That's my feelings anyway.

4.) 08 May 2017 08:20:36
Lukaku= willian jose, dolberg, possibly that Villarreal striker.

Barkley=gylfi, klassen

Then a gk=pickford or any of the 100 others linked

2 cb=keane, van dijk


Winger= grey or ghezzel.

5.) 08 May 2017 09:02:34
Berkshireblue2, if we were to buy the cheapest options from your list, circa £25 million each that would be £150 million. Add to that you want VVD also so that's £200 million. Naturally it would mean replacing Lukaku and Ross who would get us £100 million at least. So realistically we would still have to spen £100 million. I can't see that happening despite our new spending power. I have to say though, your list is very exciting and what a summer that would be.

6.) 08 May 2017 11:58:23
Dont forget we already have a small squad compared to others around the top 7 (forget 6 now) . We will also likely lose McCarthy, McGeady, Kone and Valencia plus obviously Lennon for some time. wouldn't be surprised to see Jags move on, Mirallas and maybe even Barry.

So an already small squad needs 8 replacements just to stand still. Add to that losing Rom and Barkley and at least one of our keepers and its 11 to stand still with squad size.

For me, Butland, Keane, VVD, Tielamns, Gylfi, Klaasen, and 3 strikers - don't know enough about them to say who. Would also love Redmond to give us some width / pace and a couple more youngsters.

I think the cash is there - we had some spare last year - its just how much we can spend with FFP. Exciting and interesting times regardless.



15 Mar 2017 01:45:26
Guess this will define just what direction the club is moving in. If they truly believe that Rom is going to look for a move in the summer, then why would they agree to a release clause. Better to leave things as they are and get as much cash for him as possible.

On a positive note, good win again by U23s last night coming from behind to win 3-2. Still top of the league and looking good. Pennington will be in first team squad next season, cracking defender.




05 Mar 2017 19:01:26
As bad as that was, and as good as he is, I think RK has to shoulder some of the blame for this loss. Bringing Barry in was obviously a mistake as he Schneiderlin and Gana just seemed to get in each other's way.
Had we left Barry out we could have played another forward, this would have at least helped Rom out and occupied the full backs who were basically given the freedom of the pitch.


1.) 05 Mar 2017 21:15:40
should have played 5 at the back, give our full backs more licence to get forward, and hopefully pin theirs back a bit, we never stopped walker, barry was only decent when playing regularly, don't bring him back in after a month or so out against a hi tempo fast moving team, RK got a few things wrong today.

2.) 06 Mar 2017 16:41:20
Barry is finished will b gone in summer. We also need to replace Williams and Mori not good enough. Imo jags is better than Williams as he has been piss poor lately.

3.) 07 Mar 2017 10:08:58
Couldnt agree more mate. How jags is sittin on the bench while williams is starting every game is beyond a joke, he has been at fault for at least 50 percent of the goals against us this season. Just not good enough.



05 Feb 2017 10:36:34
You know in Barkley we may just have the best English midfielder in the league. Every game he gets better and better. His goal today was simply wonderful, and I have watched it at least eight times now.

It sums up how all Everton supporters feel right now. Think we all had our arms raised before the ball actually hit the net.
Haven't felt like this for twenty odd years. 😂.


1.) 05 Feb 2017 13:00:28
unfortunately we have some fans who can't wait for him to make a mistake which is really sad we need to support him as Ross is a confidence player.

2.) 05 Feb 2017 13:34:34
Although some may feel he was harsh on Barkley but I feel the heavy constructive criticism that Koeman gave him at the start of the season has done him the world of good.

3.) 05 Feb 2017 23:51:56
He is good but not in the same class as Tom Davies who will be much better than Barclay.

4.) 06 Feb 2017 11:35:32
agree Bluey79. But then you get rubbish like this. Barkley been doing it for years, Davies just starting out. What a stupid statement.

5.) 07 Feb 2017 18:02:57
Nothing changes Woburn mate.

6.) 07 Feb 2017 18:19:01
Have always defended Barkley on here, at one point I thought the boo boys might drive him away.

He is a confidence player, we applaud when he does something magic, we should back the lad for trying and if it doesn't come off don't scream at the guy or he will never learn.

Said previously he has come on even better since Davies come into the team, whether that's down to pressure and expections being lifted who knows, but he is one we need to tie down and get behind.

{Ed025's Note - his improvement is down to koeman baz, his progress had stalled and he was feeling sorry for himself but a swift kick up the arse from ronnie has got him firing on all cylinders again and im made up for the lad mate..



31 Jan 2017 22:16:27
Jay Rodriguez not in Southampton squad tonight. With them bringing Gabbiadini in any thoughts on us going for Jay.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 22:35:12
I doubt that's the reason. Probs just taking there time with him after the injuries he has had. Certainly hope you are right though!

2.) 01 Feb 2017 13:00:25
Kone is quicker than Rodrigez. He is ok. but we are after better now. I would prefer Shane Long.

Had anyone really watched the match last night and just watched Sandros movement off the ball, you would have seen why RK wanted him. The guy is always on the move and all it needed at times was the right pass. He will do for me.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 12:29:14
Too right Woburn mate he was not still at all . if he's good enough for R K that's fine by me let it continue mate, GuernseyBlue.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 13:05:21
Totally agree with that, and his movement will distract defences and allow Klaassen to cause damage.



15 Jun 2017 22:14:37
Right I defy anybody to complain about this club now. Getting them early, buying quality and spending big. God but I'm loving this. Looks like Ron is trying to get more pace in the team, no more plodding play. YES!


{Ed025's Note - this has got moshiri written all over it woburn mate..



13 Jun 2017 23:19:23
Some supporters on here baffle me. For years they moaned about not spending any money. Now where spending it they moan about who we are buying, and for some bizarre reason for how much.
I personally don't care how much players cost or who they are. If the manager and the club think there the right players to take us forward then that's fine by me. And that includes Smalling, who I don't rate but will give my full support if Ron brings him in.
I am loving what's going on at my club. If your not then support someone else.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 06:34:46
I must admit I wasn't sure on Pickford as I felt there were other less raw options out there but the lad does have some good stats. But once a player signs and pulls on the shirt they get my full backing and support. It's exciting times!

{Ed025's Note - i must say that i have been very sceptical of us signing him ST and the price seems massive for such an inexperienced guy, but as you say if and when it happens he will get my full support and the powers that be must know more than me so its exciting times indeed mate..



07 Jun 2017 20:13:31
While I applaud the attempts of the club to purchase good young prospects, at my age I need to see some quality coming into the first eleven. By the time the "potential" hits the first team I'll be sitting in the care home staring at the nurses tits and wondering they fascinate me so much.


1.) 07 Jun 2017 20:28:40
Good one mate love it, GuernseyBlue.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 15:21:34
GB there are obviously people out here who have no sense of humour. Sad really.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 18:12:57
Ditto mate, GuernseyBlue.



29 May 2017 18:09:44
You know if Ross did go to WH then it just highlights how powerful agents now are. Are we really reaching a point where the agent now picks the club and not the player. Or have I missed something and it's always been like that?


1.) 29 May 2017 19:14:33
Hi Woburn, agree totally mate what on earth would West Ham offer Ross over us apart from the big bucks, they are going nowhere, just shows how daft foorball can be at times Cheers, GuernseyBlue.

2.) 30 May 2017 01:15:51
The only reason he would leave to a club like West Ham would be that he wants away from The City Imo.

Lance at least if they went to China the kids would have a chance of making the school basketball team. 😀.

Lacks pace so if we got him we would have to have someone like Sandro around him. Guy can score goals though.

Agree johny, if Ross is worth 50 then 40 for this guy is a snip. Imagine what are midfield would look like with him on board. No brainier for me mate.

As I said the window is not open yet, it has nothing to do with who we sell or buy. People have just got carried away with early signings.

Sorry thought Dembele did well for Fulham, and that's why Celtic bought him.

Look at it another way. If we get a great season out of him and then sell him for a big profit, then that's a win win surely. Unless we put in a silly buy out clause that is.

Would have been good enough for the team two years ago, but not anymore. Aiming higher now.

Well said NBTB, had it not been for Bill we could easily have been in the same position as Leeds. Yes we've had to wait a long time for a "big owner". But during that time he has kept the club going. He has now delivered and still people are not happy. Sad really, the guy should applauded every home game for what he has done for the club.
