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.

For Ross Barkley see Jack Rodwell. When are these boys realise they are at a great club with great support, and pretty decent wages. The best thing Ross could do is ring Jack and say so how did things work out for you mate.


{Ed025's Note - another good example woburn of why the grass is not always greener mate..



21 May 2017 17:17:25
To be honest I would miss Rom more than Ross. Team desperately needs creativity and drive. Ross just not giving us that. Today summed it up really, down to 10 men and there creative players still destroyed us. While ours didn't have the talent or imagination to do that.




01 May 2017 14:30:31
Yes yesterday was poor, but this whole season has been a roller coaster of highs and lows. Hopefully RK will now know who he wants to keep and who to let go.
Have read a lot of comments about why big players won't want to come to us but remember this, we now have the clout to pay big wages, and footballers love money.

They can't all play in the Champions league so the next best thing is cash.
I know there are those who will say we don't want to be a mercenary club like a few of those above us. But that is why they are above us, it's just the way football is sadly.

Anyway I am taking a leaf out of the players book and going on holiday for a few months. Roll on next season, time to shed the skin and emerge bigger and stronger.


1.) 01 May 2017 20:32:35
I hate to bang on about it but can we please get a sense of reality? We don't have the clout to pay the same wages nor the same sort of money on transfers that the 6 clubs above us can afford. Moshiri's money isn't the club's. We have to increase revenue before we can spend (I know there's a bit of leeway but it's not enough to put us on the same footing as the current top 6) . To bring our squad value up to that of the RS (the 'cheapest' of the top 6 squads) , we would have to spend £140 million more than they spend from now on. To match Man City, we would have to spend £400 million more than they spend. Not just spend those sums, but outspend those clubs by those amounts. Given that they currently have far greater annual revenue than us, and we have to fund a new stadium, how does anyone think that's happening? Moshiri is not Mansour and the rules have changed since he took over at City anyway. We'll make a profit on Lukaku, but nothing like enough. It's going to take a while and there are no guarantees. Give the club a chance - we're moving in the right direction. We have a savvy major shareholder, a great talent-spotter in Walsh, a good crop of young players coming through and a pragmatic, respected manager - all good; we don't have hundreds of millions to spunk on new players, which is almost always what it takes to win titles (Leicester were an anomaly - look at the weight of evidence, not the exception) . We've had a better season than last time and we have some cause for optimism, but it's counter-productive to be unrealistic and then turn on the club when we don't massively over-achieve. We are nowhere near in a position to compete financially with City, United and Chelsea. Anyone who thinks we are either doesn't understand the rules or doesn't understand numbers.

{Ed025's Note - great post that coyb..

2.) 01 May 2017 21:05:13
Spot on coyb, great post.

Delboy playing for AC Milan against Lazio tonight lads 7:30 BT Sport 3. Let's hope he has a big game.


1.) 13 Feb 2017 23:33:28
Well he didn't really. Mind you the standard of football is grim.



07 Feb 2017 18:04:38
Just watching the 85/ 86 season game between the blues and Southampton. Boys won 6-1 Lineker hatrick.
But to all those younger supporters who think the old lady is past her best, take a look at how she was back then.
Park End enclosure all bricked up and deemed unsafe. Metal fencing all around the ground so no fan interaction. Yes she might be showing her age now, but the transplants she has had still make me love her, and I will miss her dearly when she has gone.


1.) 07 Feb 2017 20:15:03
They were good days mate, Nostalgia has kicked in and I remember it differently. not doubting you for a second though, (Damned reality)

Would love to get Gylfi, but watched Klassen and he reminded me of Neismith. Maybe he just had a bad night.

How about one end being for supporters who want to stand. I think it's the Dortmund stadium that has this, and it can be changed to seated when required. Atmosphere would be spanking.

Let him go to China, make loads of money then invest it in the club. Maybe buy a stand at the new stadium, or sponsor the academy? Obviously none of this will actually happen. He's a footballer after all.

Also have to consider what effect he has on the team with his attitude. As for others scoring, well had he passed to players who at times were wide open, then perhaps we would have had more scorers.

If Barkleys not careful he could end up as the next sissoko. If we get Gylfi from Swansea and Klaassen from Ajax then Ross won't get a look in.
