So SSN has a couple of Everton snippets. I've never trusted it for rumours, sources and what have you, but have noticed that when they give transfer news, its generally because it has become pretty mainstream so they're not putting their necks on the line.
Anyways, they say Tosun is done at 27mil and we have strong interest in Seri. The Eds have long since said about Tosun but is our interest in Seri real? Great player to land imo.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 18:36:07
The Tosun deal won't be confirmed until Jim White is on the phone confirming it with his good pal Moshiri. 🤣.

I'm really interested in this Ed02 related suggestion of Hoddle for manager and think he would have been a tremendous acquisition at the club. As has been said, It really is baffling as to why he's disappeared from club job shortlists.
I wonder if it went t*ts up for him when he was England boss and had that debacle with mystics improving performance or whatever it was along those lines. He got so much ridicule that perhaps clubs don't want that controversy. I personally believe he was just trying something new, mental improvement converting to performance gains, but it just spun out of control.
Anyways, he was a top drawer manager and no doubt could inject something fresh into the club which we desperately need. I hope we get to see him back in a top job one day soon!
As for Allardyce or Fonseca, I'd go for the latter all day long but do share most peoples concerns of him adapting quickly enough to help us. Maybe we would be safer with the proven option for the short term health of the club.


1.) 29 Nov 2017 07:41:22
Hoddle has been out of the management game for too long now in my opinion. We don't have time for experiments at present. We have done that with Unsworth and look where we are. I would have loved it to have worked out for Davey but the mess and unbalanced side that Koeman has left behind has made it practically impossible for a good, young and inexperienced manager to get anything from the position. Although there are a lot that really don't want Sam he is the best option we have to stabalise and move us away from the bottom.

2.) 29 Nov 2017 16:03:34
The reason he fell off the radar was for comments relating to the disabled. Something along the lines of his opinion was that we are all reincarnated once we die and that those who are disabled are paying the price of wrong doing in a previous life.

So excited for tomorrows deadline, i'm sure we'll be one of the teams getting serious SSN coverage.

Linked to Watforfds Okaka i see and actually, I'm quite happy with this. He's been a little inconsistent but not really given a real chance. He's a solid beast of a man, tough and strong and i think he will be very usefull for hold up play. Strong 'bully' attributes too to get to goal which i like. Also, he definitely scores some fab goals (when he scores which isn't as often as i think he could) .

If he can step up to a more consistent level then he could be a real asset to the team! Imagine him putting in more of the performances like he did against Liverpool on opening day. Not a long term solution, and not the high profile we all hoped for, but certainly better than not getting anybody.

On a side note, what a great piece of business by West Brom in getting Krychowiak from PSG. They kept that quiet and i bet their fans are thrilled! How I'd have loved him to join us!


1.) 31 Aug 2017 10:17:09
I can't get over people who question certain players we are linked with. Just because they are not talked about in a fashionable manner.

Like Valencia last season everyone was saying lack of ambition bla bla bla.

Imho Valencia was good for us last season. Anytime he came on the team changed and the majority of the time improved. I'm not saying we should of signed him. The point is he done a job for us and quite effective at it too. Didn't get a deserved amount of praise imho.

Who's to say another won't come in and do the same or even better? Okaka may surprise some people if we get him. After all that's what Walsh is there for. Gana didn't excite too many people and look him now. Martina is improving already. Hope he proves his worth with time also.



22 Jun 2017 22:14:41
Evening fellow Evertonians.

I want to state i am not ITK so i tentatively share this information to ponder. It's just some chatter I've heard and could be way off the mark.

Barkley wants a move to a bigger club BUT would happily take a move to almost any club in London, it seems he just wants to relocate to the capital more than anything.

The bigger news i have is that further transfers may actually be put on hold for the time being. It seems that anticipated outgoings are not coming to fruition and if we continue to line up deals we will end up with a bloated squad that has cost a lot of money.

Yes its early days and the window has yet to open, but it was thought a bid would come for Barkley which now looks unlikely, and there is growing thought that Lukaku may actually end up staying. It stems from so many high quality forwards rumoured to be moving that teams could very well swerve a big money move for Rom in favour of equally quality players.

The sudden interest in Lewandowski, although quickly put to bed, apparently made us think that Chelsea are not as keen as first thought and may very well be working on other options instead. It could run late in the window to be decided and we can't splash out on a pricey forward if Rom ends up staying.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 23:36:03
The board are not stupid enough to overspend, they will continue with their targets, this is big business all aspects will have been carefully considered that we are obviously not party to, I remember Koeman saying there would be a statement on Ross B for example which never materialised .
This is pure conjecture on your part and not the reality.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 23:37:18
We have spent roughly 55 million so far.

Bear in mind that we actually made money in the previous summer window.

With the TV money alone, we still have money left to spend, so why would we put signings on hold?

In regards to the bloated squad. Koeman came out even before the season finished and said that we will be recruiting heavily to cope with the extra games/ demands of european football.

With Conor Mc, Kone released and then McCarthy, Jags, Valencia, Del Boy, McGeady, Niasse all leaving (makes 8) , we have only gotten 2 replacements in so far.

Makes no sense at all. We have money to spend, regardless of whether Rom or Barkley stay. Which i highly doubt they will, and the Eds have already made us aware of this.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 23:43:57
I'm not so sure Barkley would be interested in a move to west ham, Fulham, palace or QPR so don't see much in that rumour. I am not ITK but what I do know is that if Lukaku was to stay RK, FM, BK, and SW would be made up.
The club would be stupid to start spending money they couldn't afford based on a possible bid coming in for a player and that is not how the club is being run.
We have money, not billions but enough to bank roll what we have bought so far. Our squad is still small and full of youngsters for a team who needs to compete in the Europa league as well as the prem and domestic cups.
I would take those rumours with a pinch of salt WorcesterEFC.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 23:57:34
Window hasn't actually opened yet. So bidding 18m for Brozovic was just a bluff then was it? Stop believing everything you read in the papers mate.

5.) 23 Jun 2017 11:18:45
@Woburnblue calm your attitude! This is something i heard people talking about today, nothing whatsoever to do with papers. I didn't say anything was a bluff. My understanding is its a re-evaluation until outgoings are clearer. Obviously higher quality signings are considered but we will not be spending 30 mil plus on strikers in the event we don't sell Lukaku!

I thought people would have the common sense to understand i meant attack rather than whole squad but it appears some people are either too literal or itching to slag things off at the first opportunity.

@JMW1878 I don't think you have a grasp of things, just because we made money in previous window and had an influx of cash from tv rights etc, does not mean we can go out and spend it all. The club is looking to buy big, but these players do not come to sit on the bench, and the club does not invest in numerous high value signings to fill the squad without playing.

The likes of Dembele and Bacca etc will not be actively pursued if there is the possibility of not getting a Lukaku sale. You list 8 players "all leaving" but my understanding is there is little interest and at least 4 of those you named could very well still be at the club come end of transfer window.

@Smit666 another literal view of my comment. Maybe i should have said EPL teams to make it easier for you to understand. Use some common sense that i didn't mean Fulham or QPR! But i am of the understanding that he actually would consider West Ham and Palace.

6.) 23 Jun 2017 11:49:09
it's obvious ross has been tapped up by spurs at least a year ago or is it big players within the team reminding every good player we have what a small insignificant club we are but you would think ross (jeffers) barkley would be happy to just come out and say what he wants no fans would hold a grudge if he wanted to try something new in his life especially with his recent troubles. his silence speaks volumes he is not waiting for a move to the capital he is waiting to move to spurs despite the rhetoric coming out of WHL franny i mean ross may just panic and sign for arsenal. what a time to leave tho ross when we are building for the future and the way levy runs spurs you can bet most of the best players in that team will leave within 2 years for better pay and teams maybe you should have taken more stock of players in similar positions in the past.

7.) 23 Jun 2017 13:23:35
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.

8.) 23 Jun 2017 13:34:46
If Ross would consider WH or Palace then he seriously lacks ambition and the move wouldn't make sense, they won't pay him more than what we have already offered so the move would be purely based on location which is just NUTS.

9.) 23 Jun 2017 15:54:50
I heard some people talking yesterday too and I'm not claiming to be ITK either, but they said those Asda white chocolate magnum copies are just as good as the real McCoy.



10 Jun 2017 17:01:09
So i heard a rumour a couple of weeks ago that we were interested in Chris Smalling, i dismissed it instantly as i just couldn't see that happening. However it seems Utd have tied up a deal for Lindelof so i have to ask, is it actually a possibility after all?

I have very differing opinons of Smalling at times, sometimes i think he's rock solid and other games he just seems a little average, but on balance i think he would be a pretty decent signing. A partnership of him and Holgate would be pretty solid i think and would definitely be an improvement on our ageing back line situation. You could also say it would potentially be the England national back line in future games if they bonded well.

If anybody has heard anything about this i'd love to know!?


1.) 10 Jun 2017 22:10:14
Everton are after michael Keane. Lamos is back up.

2.) 11 Jun 2017 00:12:50
that's not what i asked jipster.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 12:16:28
Couldn't agree more, Worcester. Seen him look absolutely top quality one game and wobbly and below average the next, but that's symptomatic of a good player playing a little above his level who's not great dealing with 70,000 deluded united fans a week. Think could find his feet and get established with us, as long as he's not too much. Would happily say around £20m?

So many on here hate Sam and want him gone, each to their own opinion i guess. However, i hear Walcott chose to come here because he wants to work with Allardyce. I honestly expected him to favour a move back to Southampton so now very happy to see him in our famous blue. It appears that Sam may have some pulling power when it comes to bringing in players after all. I don't know why this is, but if players want to come to us purely because of the manager we have then his appointment has great benefits.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 21:06:25
Good old Sam lol.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 22:01:14
Because Alardyce doesn't talk BS and has a personality. Never the less I still do not like the pundits predictions visa vis lineups even with Walcots arrival and to be honest if it continues I just do not understand it. Most still have Rooney through the middle with Siguurdson (arguably the most creative) out on the left wing.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 07:51:04
Every player that moves to a club says the same thing.

We need to lay off the Sam thing and stop trying to convince people to like or hate him. Whether it's you don't like him or do, it doesn't matter. Let's start talking football for a change.

4.) 18 Jan 2018 09:04:44
every player when they join a club say its down to the manager. its a thing they can think of when getting interviewed by a club, I suspect the fact were not as low as Southampton twisted his arm with rooney also being a factor.

5.) 18 Jan 2018 12:21:01
A back 3 and 2 wing backs need only 1 holding in midfield. Then Sig an Rooney behind 2 Tosun and Walcott.

6.) 18 Jan 2018 16:09:29
Why does pointing out that we have had no shots on goal in the league in Jsnuary equate to hating Sam?



14 Jan 2018 18:57:53
I think it's a horrendous attitude from those calling for Big Sam to be sacked already. And why do people keep reffering to premiership survival being needed?
Yes its an awful season so far but i'm 99% sure we're safe from relegation so please strike that from your moans. Also, SA has only had a few weeks. He will do what he can with what he's got, and if we're lucky to get some new bodies in then we can assess him fairly from then on.
It looks to me like 7th could steal a Europa spot like last year and we are in a great position to challenge for that so why can't everyone get behind the team and hope for a much improved end to the season.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 19:35:42
I certainly don't want him sacked mid season Worcester EFC but I have to disagree that we are safe. Far from it.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 19:46:16
I'm with you Smit666 we are far from safe and no point sacking him now but he should definitely be let go in the summer if things don't improve I thought our football was bad under Roberto and Koeman but Jesus this is bad I genuinely believe we are the least attractive team to watch it's shocking.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 19:53:43
Great position to challenge for 7th get real the sooner we hit 40 points the better.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 19:58:27
and I think its horrendous for people to think we are safe, NO WAY mate.

5.) 14 Jan 2018 20:16:55
this is unreal from the comments, we are much closer to 7th than 18/ 19/ 20 yet relegation is a distinct possibilty but pushing for 7th is completely unrealistic.
I think some of you guys are desperate to moan rather than support the team.

6.) 14 Jan 2018 20:20:05
I'm with you on that one GB we are far from being safe. Still need a minimum of 13 points for safety.

7.) 14 Jan 2018 20:42:45
Same here Smit, Guernsey and Grumpy we are far from safe and sacking Sam is definitely not the answer, and definitely can't see us challenging for 7th as your stating Worcester that would put us in the same predicament as this season anyway starting the season in July. Let's just get a settled team get points and take it from there.

8.) 14 Jan 2018 20:49:45
ditto mate at least.

9.) 14 Jan 2018 21:04:26
We are closer to 18th in our playing quality than we are to 7th.

10.) 14 Jan 2018 21:31:21
Have you watched any of our matches? We are getting worse as each game goes buy. Of course we could get relegated. Is that what I want just to get Shot of Sam? No. I would love him to be a success, because then the teams a success. But he’s not and we’re not.

11.) 14 Jan 2018 23:03:19
The arrogance of fans thinking we are safe are the reason this club is going nowhere.

12.) 15 Jan 2018 09:15:40
if you think we're safe you need to go look at the table mate, two points clear of west ham are they safe?



05 Jan 2018 21:33:09
15 mins left and i can't bare to watch.

I have to say i'm so proud of the youth coming through at the club, Lookman, DCL, Davies, Kenny, Baningime looks like he has a future, Holgate identified as a prospect and brought in. What a wonderful team we'll have as they develop.


{Ed0333's Note - squeaky bum time mate

1.) 05 Jan 2018 21:52:03
Trouble is when they are playing in front of £25m signings the club has a lot to answer for in respect to recruitment!
Totally agree but our investments must start to deliver results.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 22:01:32
That makes no sense Wakka. Why should a 25m signing be better than a talented youngster coming through the ranks? Whose to say one of them isn't a 50 mil player and therefore deserved of the team place.



28 Dec 2017 14:43:37
So Liverpool have certainly made a splash by signing Van Dijk, a very decent player but vastly overpriced imo.
I find this huge increase in player values to be worrying. If Van Dijk is 75m then what would it take to land, say, Varane?
Defenders are typically cheaper than midfielders, who are cheaper than forwards, so what prices are we looking at come summer for a top class striker? Imagine if we held on to Lukaku for one more season what price tag he'd have fetched now.
I think the market HAS to go back down else nobody can afford to buy players anymore. At this rate, a huge summer transfer budget of 250 million is only going to get you 2 or 3 players and most clubs simply cannot afford to do that year upon year.
Can we expect transfer fees to keep on rising or is it likely something will be implemented/ agreed to take values back down to the norm?


{Ed002's Note - You are talking about a handful of players changing hands between a clubs at the very high prices. Aside from that prices will remain within reach. Remember the PL clubs have far higher income than their counterparts elsewhere.}

1.) 29 Dec 2017 08:46:54
The huge money came in with the latest tv money deal. Premier League is shown in just about every hotel in the world. Every time a new deal is negotiated, another huge some of money is shared between clubs. So silly fees such as Van Dijk's or even our own Sigurdsson come out of the fact that the huge sums are available to spend. In a competitive situation, money talks!

{Ed025's Note - your right degs..



05 Nov 2017 11:47:24
Hey all,
I imagine over the international break we will appoint a full time manager, and it seems almost inevitable that it'll be Allardyce. I'm not a fan at all after his England shame and was disgusted that he got another job so quick at Palace, but if he is to be our man then we need to stop the (justified) hate by pretty much everyone on here. We can't start a new era with such negativity otherwise confidence within the team will vanish immediately. let's give him a fighting chance to win us over.
I do admit though, i'm quite curious about how he will perform in the transfer market. If Moshiri decides to bankroll a new manager as a lot of the big guys would demand when taking the job, then who could we expect to see interest in? I say this remembering the Bolton signings that made me so envious. Okocha, Djorkaeff, Ivan Campo etc. How on earth did he tempt those guys to join? I wonder if he's a manager who will go all out for so called 'big name' signings, or keep the faith and bring in players he's worked with previously (i foresee Andros Townsend and Zaha rocking up at Goodison in January) .
Anyways, let's hope for a great game today that gives Unsworth a winning send off.


{Ed025's Note - i myself will have to tolerate him (if appointed) i suppose worcester, i love everton and want the best for them, but i wont be singing his praises or chanting his name anytime soon i can tell you, selling my soul to the devil is not really my bag mate and out of respect for other supporters i will try not to bad mouth the guy if we are doing ok, im afraid thats all i can promise at this time mate and if the worst happens then so be it..

1.) 05 Nov 2017 12:15:52
It will be Moyes mate, sorry to say.

{Ed025's Note - no chance stig..

2.) 05 Nov 2017 12:24:12
We will win today 3-1 to stop the rot. Allardyce will not be appointed our next Manager so stop worrying about that. Our next manager needs to be one which we can all be proud of and support.

{Ed025's Note - i hope you right mike..

3.) 05 Nov 2017 13:03:07
I have been a fan for a log time, (Vernon, Dunlop, Temple) first game 58/ 59, but now I am worried, we have dreamers here who think we will pay for a top manager? but we will end up with a fat sam or a moyes, same rubbish managers just move around.

4.) 05 Nov 2017 13:46:55
Wow Stig sane season as me mate and we seem to be on the same wavelength.
I am often called negative on here but without sounding to clever several of my negative comments have proved correct SADLY inc my views on Koeman
Stig I would put it down not so much to negativity but experience and wisdom of our great club .

5.) 05 Nov 2017 14:31:45
Will not be Moyes as he will be the next Westham manager.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too grumpy..

6.) 05 Nov 2017 14:44:12
Ditto Grumpy mate.

7.) 05 Nov 2017 15:28:54
Dyche or Silva it will be.

8.) 05 Nov 2017 15:43:19
BlueMike, I hope you are right. I have just choked on my pint, look at that team, where the hell is the width. Looks like Siguurdson out wide again. What is going on.

9.) 05 Nov 2017 16:05:21
I’m liking the team selection. Schneiderlin dropped at last! Think I’m the only Evertonian that still wants Rhino as our manager on a permanent basis. Out of the names being mentioned Sean Dyche is the only other that interests me, the rest are laughable. The favourites surely a massive no! Moyes over Alladyce every day of the year . and some. Don’t want neither but it ain’t up to me. DU should be given at least another 3,4 games but that’s my opinion. If we win today I won’t be the only fan saying this either. COYB!

10.) 05 Nov 2017 17:29:56
If Allerdyce is appointed I'm done after 66yrs. The thought of that greedy, arrogant gum chewing tosser stood on the touchline with an Everton badge on his chest is more than I can stomach. Each to his own opinion though.

I would give anything to see us back in Europe next year. It has some obvious drawbacks by having to start the season so much earlier but that is our own fault for only scraping in by the very last spot. We can consider the qualifiers to be our pre season games so don't necessarily need to play any more matches than we would in any other pre season.
By being in Europe, albeit Europa rather than Champions League, we should be more enticing to players considering joining us. And the opportunity to play against some high quality continental competition is what i want to see at the club.
Also, yes we had a disaster this year, but if we did not play our Europa qualifier, we would never have identified and signed Vlasic. It's always worth looking for the bright moments and that for me is one of them.

What absolute nonsense all around. No chance of making 7th? because 6 points is such a huge gap.
Effectively throw the match against Arsenal because we never get anything there? Well we never will if we don't try.
And still people saying we will be lucky to avoid relegation. Yes its mathematically possible we will be relegated but who on here really believes we will not pick up at least 12 points between now and the end of the season. - how about a wager, anyone who thinks we will get relegated vs me. £100 each to the charity of the winning eds football match. If we get relegated i will honour it and stump up. If we don't you each donate £100. I'm sure it can be arranged to attach the usernames to the donations to see if anybody bottles it. Put your money where your mouth is guys if you really believe we are that bad, or is it another case of you just want to criticise us because you enjoy doing so regardless.

Id like him, think he can add a bit of quality to us. Seems to have waned a little the past year or two but if he can recapture his earlier promise then he'd be a gem in a lot of teams.

It's such a crazy situation isn't it. You can discuss anything with the agent, we'll pay this much, promise game time, bonuses etc, who clearly will go and tell the player. It's something that should be tightened up because i hate seeing players go on strike because they've had their heads turned. Impossible task to do so though when as you say, agents are always knocking on clubs doors. They'll just pretend they're discussing another matter entirely and discreetly bring up the player.

Come on guys, enough of the Martina abuse. We all know he's not good enough and it's especially tough for him on the wrong side but it doesn't need repeating literally every day. At least he tries which is far more than can be said about Williams. A liability in every match and doesn't even seem to care.
Everyone is entitled to critique but it's turning villainous towards him now when others are equally to blame for our defensive woes.

Such nonsense. Fringe players at the big clubs are often more than good enough for most other clubs. Walcott would be a big step in the right direction for us. Sometimes seems to go missing but other days looks sensational and bangs in the goals. I'd be very happy to see him here!
