I can confirm Ricarlson has had his medical, the tv cameras were set up by where I live in Newton Le Willows at the Pall Mall medical centre and photos confirm Ricarlson arriving at the building.

Whatever else happens you can take it from me he has had his medical today.

Ed02 you know your rubbish for sure. But I don't think people know who, or what you do. So they might presume your a footy buff. I think Worcester was referring to the pundits on talk sport or match of the day. Please don't take offence sir.

{Ed002's Note - I am not a "footy buff", there is no offence Mowfee.}

Footy buff? Is that someone who plays football in the nude 🤷🏻‍♂️.

3.) 24 Jul 2018 18:27:52
Haha buff, I meant boff.

What does he do? I have wondered many times.

He certainly knows his stuff but I do take opinion on things with a pinch or salt because if he was any good, he would be world reknowned (wouldn’t anyone! ) and if he was rich and famous he definitely would have had some life skills coaching to help with human interaction 😂😂 he’s so dry that guy!

Look forward to reading his posts every day though.

Robles is set to leave on a free transfer in the Summer, not sure who we will get as a number two backup in case a dip in form or injury occurs, Stek is no spring chicken and doubt a top class goalkeeper will come as second choice sat on the bench.

Need to get someone in as a priority in the Summer.


1.) 23 Mar 2018 17:08:42
Burnley’s goalkeeper Pope gaining a good reputation would be a good choice, but being No 2 at Burnley he may not see being No 2 at Everton as an option. But Pickford may draw attention from other big clubs so it’s worth looking at Pope.

2.) 25 Mar 2018 15:46:21
I quite like Robles as a back up, solid professional that is always available and gives his best when required. Bit of a shame he didn't get a longer run to prove himself but there we go.

3.) 26 Mar 2018 04:57:07
He had plenty of time to prove himself, unfortunately he failed to do so.

4.) 28 Mar 2018 12:25:12
Have you seen his stats for last season Grimbo? Considering he would have to come in when there was an injury so it would take a few games to get up to speed they are not bad at all.



20 Mar 2018 22:45:37
Just a bit of banter, but has anyone else noticed that whenever a Merseyside Derby is coming up, people request any spares from a long lost uncle, niece etc who has luck would have it are flying over from the states, Australia, timbuttwo and just happen to be in the Country for the Derby.

Well something different from the usual Sam, new stadium, bill posts.


{Ed033's Note - Is timbuttwo a close friend of Milo Yiannopoulos? Maybe tim comes from Timbuktu.

Usmanov debate goes on so here is my intake on the matter, as I have stated a few months back my viewing on the matter.

This is just a view that could be possible or wide off the mark.

From the moment Moshi arrived and then the funding of Finch farm, people were putting two and two together.

Now what sticks out like a sore thumb is the selling of his shares at Arsenal, followed up the next Day by Everton making a statement saying they no longer need the funding from Liverpool City Council.

This then followed a message from Usmanov saying, if my friend Moshi needs any help, he only needs to ask.

My intake in the matter is, this is Moshi, s project, Usmanov I feel would certainly invest in Everton, it comes down to either Moshi going it alone, or getting Usmanov on board.

Again could be way off the mark, but from what I see, I think this is down to Moshi, and that is why Usmanov is not giving too much away.

I will be surprised if Usmanov in whatever role or-help, Does not help or fund Everton further, just waiting for the nod from his friend Moshi.


{Ed002's Note - I thought this had all been dealt with. Alisher Usmanov is looking for a club to buy in full and whilst Newcastle is available in the Premier League I am not aware of any interest being shown at this time, or any approach to Mike Ashley. Everton is Moshiri's baby. However, he has held discussions with the represntatives of two Italian sides as I have previously explained.}

1.) 08 Sep 2018 15:33:04
My intake is he wants overall control of a club, which 51% would be enough, again it is possible that Moshiri could sell enough to still be the second highest shareholder at the club with the long term being Usmanov as the main majority holder, working side by side again.

Yes this is Moshiri, s project and more than likely will want to go it alone.

All I am saying is not to rule out Usmanov having some sort of input at Everton just yet.

2.) 08 Sep 2018 15:37:59
One of Usmanovs press team released the following, Usmanov is keen to remain in English football but it won't be Charlton that he invests in despite the reports.

So that for me rules out the two Italian teams as the top of his list of priority.

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid that is not what was said to CNBC by anyone associated with AU.}

3.) 09 Sep 2018 05:03:52
He will come to Everton, wait and see, done deal.



01 Aug 2018 14:01:04
Jack Rodwell is training with the u23,s after being released by Watford, Everton have no plans to sign the player, however for me regardless of jumping ship, he is still only 27 years old, hardly on the end of his playing career.

Personally for free, I would add him to the squad, if we manage to offload other players.

Thing with Rodwell, he has looked after himself and for a freebie, could do a lot worse, what's not to like.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 14:39:42
We are trying to reduce the wage bill and squad size so that's not the best idea I've heard.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:15
Ye not the best idea mate. We need to move forward, move on.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 17:09:02
He has thrown away his most crucial years for a pay cheque and a seat on a world famous bench. He then failed big time at one of the worst Prem sides of all time.

If we went down last year, maybe jist maybe I'd suggest he'd be worth a pay as you play contract.

He's had the riches and the girls, that was his dream. Shame as he was highly highly rated and seemed to be backing it up. i'm sure he will pass his name on for the use of doing a "rodwell" next!



17 Jul 2018 01:01:40
Ok here's a post for people sweating with no players coming in yet.

First and foremost ignore the rags, wait until the player is holding the shirt up at finch farm, they will come.

Secondly, let's just see what an attack minded manager can do with players some may have written off, few friendlies, play the players in the correct positions, play with support to the strikers, once we have played a few, Silva will know what he needs.

The last manager played too defensive, and the two before that tippy tippy sideways football.

Let's see what Silva gets out of these friendlies with a better style of football, putting other teams on the back foot for a change.

Let's be patient for a week or so and see what Silva can bring to the team.




30 Jun 2018 13:11:21
I thought I would add a post in regards to attention Pickford is picking up from neutrals, some of it is for me, in my opinion needing working on the become one of the best goalkeepers.

No doubting still young and can learn, starting with not crossing his arms and going for the ball with his other hand, staying closer to his goal line to maximise any unexpected long range shots over head height, catching a ball and demanding the area his his.

Something Neville Southall achieved to become the very best, he went out on loan, came back, worked on his saves, his catches and the commanding of his penalty area, when that ball went in the box no prisoners were taken with Nev, he made the ball his on countless ocassions, only one flaw with Nev and came later in his career was the chip over his head, Schmichel had the same when he was chipped, so even great goalkeepers have a chink in their armour.

De gea makes countless saves with his feet and legs, not a lot has been said by that by the neutrals, more keepers are electing to punch or claw the ball away than ever now.

So again I say with age on Pickfords side, he can tweak the small flaws to become on of the best, he's almost there now and will get even better, made up we have the guy as our number one keeper.


1.) 30 Jun 2018 14:33:59
De geas first season with United was a disaster but SAF kept with him and look at him now. Pickford will be amazing. And when he is, the whole team will be too.

Better not bitter


2.) 30 Jun 2018 15:43:53
The reason keepers punch the ball away now is because it creates the counter attack.

It is amazing to think how many goals are created by punching the ball out instead of holding it and why keepers are trained to do this.

He has to angle them away better but he's not wrong doing it, it just needs tweaking.

He is so similar to Ter Stegan in size and athleticism who in my eyes is one of the best in world football.

He's going to be a superstar when he gains experience and matures.



26 Jun 2018 19:58:59
I think the press have exhausted every possible lead now, back to square one and Yarmalenko back in the mix again.

Like all good Ed's always say, lazy journal talk, law of averages say the journalists will drop on lucky on one of the many links.

Sit back and enjoy the World Cup, forget about every Tom, Dick and Harry until we see them holding the shirt up at finch farm, or one of the Ed's tip us a wink which is more reliable than the stuff the papers keep coming up with.


1.) 26 Jun 2018 21:05:05
Just shows mate how the rags spout rubbish.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 09:43:57
im liking how close our cards are to our chest, the funes mori deal came out of nowhere and nobody knew like how it used to be. I mean it could just be that we've got nothing progressing as of yet but i'm hoping for the former!

3.) 27 Jun 2018 21:11:29
They must have changed dramatically then because the Sig and Sandro deals lasted all season to close the deal.

What is worrying though is Zouma and Gomes are on loan, while Mina has a buy back clause in his contract, that’s three players we have no control over.


{Ed002's Note - There is control over Yerry Mina - "buy back" clauses do not m,ean that Barcelona can simply pay Everton and they have to send him back. Plus, given the outrageous price Everton paid for him I don't see any chance of him going back in the short to medium term.}

Oh well with Bernard injured, Bolasie and Vlasic gone and Richarlison suspended, the guy will have to knuckle down and take his chance.

Silva wants the player, he cannot be blamed for the past managers who overlooked the guy, or the dire football that was not suited to Lookmans style of play.

Silvas brand of football is right up Lookman street, this could be the opportunity Lookman has been waiting for.

If he is still unhappy come January then there’s the option to move then, for now though, with players missing, he has a great chance to force Silvas hand, and make himself undroppable.

Big thumbs up to Silva for sticking to his guns and not letting player power over rule what he is building at Everton.

Do what Barcalona do, stick a buy back clause in his contract. Just in case.

Bolasie gone, Vlasic gone, Richarlison out for 3 games, need to keep the guy in my opinion, starting with an appearance against Rotherham.

I agree Ed, I slated the guy last season for not putting a shift in and rightly so, this season he has knuckled down and apart from last Saturday, which was unstandable, he has upped his game.

Still got fingers crossed though for McCarthy, he is one player who we miss.


{Ed025's Note - i was not happy with morgan at all last season bignev and to be honest would not have shed a tear if he had gone, but fair play to the guy he has knuckled down and has been one of our better performers. on macca i will be made up to see him back mate, say what you will about his ability but when he puts that glorious blue shirt on he gives 100% every time, i have felt at times that our midfield has been bullied this season but if macca plays you know that wont happen and i would love to see him get some game time..

Hornsby was poor for the u23s Monday night, nows not the time to bring the lad in, send him out on loan, toughen the kid up.

Personally I would go all out to try and get Bas Dost in, a giant of a forward who scored 45 concecative goals with just one touch, looks a beast at 6ft 5 and plenty of goals in the guy.

Digmi, Kenny floating the balls in and link up play with Walcott, Richarlison and Siggerson. Cannot think of a better option to bring in.

We need a centre forward who can convert those crosses coming in today.

What is it with Silva after only a handful of games some are saying not my choice, does not stay.

Let’s take a look at it so far, people wanted attacking football, we’ve got that, people unhappy with defence, he brought in the left back, people talked about the centre half’s, he brought two in.

Then less mobile on the left and midfield, he brought Richarlison and Bernard in, people were demanding we kept Lookman, he kept hold of Lookman.

Short of getting the zonal marking sorted, I think Silva is a breath of fresh air and is trying to do all the right things.

Injuries, suspensions and new players still getting up to speed will take a little while, but for me Silva has done all we have asked for in strengthening key areas.

Just need the zonal marking sorted and all systems go.

Not wrong there Bluejohn, some horrible scenes in the seventies and eighties, thankfully cctv and seater stadiums make it harder for someone to hide in a crowd.

Whilst on the subject I had a good think about the lack of item our neighbours did not send.

So let suppose they sent a memento of the first all Merseyside cup final-the milk cup, or the first all Merseyside fa cup final, any item they sent could be looked at as rubbing our noses in the item they sent.

I agree it was poor not sending a momentum but in the same breath it could have been received as having a pop at us, so I am sitting on the fence with this one.
