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.

Expect various new manager links in the next Day or so, paper talk and bookies trying to attract punters.

I said last week i will be having a few Days to chill out and enjoy the fact Sam has gone.

Also said on a post a month back when someone said have a punt on Arteta which I responded with save your money and stick it on Silva instead.

Nothing has changed my view and fully expect Silva to be our next manager.


1.) 21 May 2018 22:59:52
With Arsenals twist today, I'd say we have as much clue as anyone. We all know who's available and we all know what clubs are looking for new managers.

Silva is clearly a favourite. Either way I really hope it's finalised in the next couple of days.



14 May 2018 00:07:25
I thought it was time to write a new post rather than keep replying to other post.

Well the season has finally ended thank the Lord, next season I see big changes from top to bottom.

Once Moshi gets Woods shares, watch the rubbish hit the fan and big changes at the club, Elstone going to super league rugby, Walsh gone, Kenwright stepping down once he can no longer over rule Moshi.

Sam out a cert, Moshi will want to bring new management in, Silva at a guess.

Some of the deadwood shipped out from the playing staff.

Next season will hopefully be a new start, will take time but I think we will get there.

If all the above happens, you can shove your be careful what you wish comments where the Monkey shoves its nuts.

Cannot have another season like this one, need to get it right this time.

Cheer up fellow Blues, the winds of change are about to sweep through Goodison.

Onwards and upwards.


1.) 14 May 2018 07:18:35
Of our 4 managers Moyes has the best points per game record followed by Martinez (reckon he will get Belgium to the World Cup 1/ 4 or 1/ 2 finals) . Koeman and Allardyce are level at 1.48. Silva's points per game record is downright awful at his premiership Clubs and yet we are thinking of bringing him in. We all may like to see the game played at exciting tempo but it is at the end of the day a results business. As a Club we need to show ambition coupled with determination and to me going for such as Silva does not show those two values. We need to go for someone who actually knows how to win: Benitez for me.

{Ed025's Note - the thing is DFS is that whoever we go for its a gamble, some will fit and some wont but whoever we go for we have to have the common goal of getting behind him on all levels for the good of the club, wenger was seen as a massive gamble when he moved to arsenal and koeman seen as an obvious choice when he came to us...and we all know how that turned out mate..



28 Apr 2018 10:07:40
With all the managers available, Out of them all, I would put Unai Emery the top of the list, it will not be long before the likes of Emery, Fonsesca, Van Gal, Touchi and the likes find another club.

Everton need to act fast and land one of these managers, before it is too late.


1.) 28 Apr 2018 10:43:45
Would love Emery if we have a job for him and if he'd come.
Any manager who has seen how bad we have been and will still probably finish 8th, would surely think they could have us challenging top 6 with a few decent buys and a style of play.
Arsenal, Chelsea, PSG will be looking this season, with Tuchel, Emery, Enrique, Ancelotti, Silva and possibly Fonseca to name just a few looking for a job.
Surely we can bag a decent manager if we need one.

2.) 28 Apr 2018 11:10:57
I was a Fonseca fan but I'm becoming more and more on the side of giving Dyche a go. Several reasons
I think he, more than anybody else would embrace the Everton Way.
He has shown at Burnley that he commits to a long term project
He has shown at Burnley that his teams can develop from defence minded to 2 up front attack minded at times
He has proven he can develop players

ABS anybody but Sam would be my second choice.

3.) 28 Apr 2018 11:28:16
tuchel is off to PSG I think I think arsenal will look at emery and simeone I'm not sold on Silva after the way he behaved at Watford.

4.) 28 Apr 2018 11:43:45
I’d go for Dyche as well but not sure how keen he’d be. He’s revered at Burnley both by the club and everyone outside it for the hat he’s done, and what he continues to do. He could undo a lot of that if he moves to a bigger club with a massive budget and it doesn’t work. Just look at Moyes.

5.) 28 Apr 2018 14:23:56
Dyche plays similar football to Sam. He's got just 14 goals in 16 home games this season.

We need someone with experience of challenging the elite teams and with a progressive type of football.

Dyche is not an Everton type manager.



27 Apr 2018 16:44:00
This will touch a raw nerve with some, me included, but the latest press conference does not fill me with excitement in regards to Sam still being here next season.

A survey seems to not matter one bit and although we do not know the outcome of the survey results or the meeting last night, the press conference today does not sound like someone who is about to lose their job.

Much as I laugh and mock our neighbours for petitions and protests, at the same time you have to look on in envy that as fans, the walkout they had, had the desired effect.

What do we do, have a plane fly over with a banner on.

I have never been one for fans protests during a game, but I feel after the last home game against Southampton, we need to stand together and let the board hear loud and clear, we do not want Sam in charge for next season, if we do not let it known, there is a chance Sam will be in charge again next season.

I urge all fellow Evertonians to say enough is enough, email the club, do whatever is needed but for the sake of our great football club, do not remain silent.


1.) 27 Apr 2018 18:05:31
Seems to be a big push from Evertonians, that if Sam is still in charge for the final home game, there is a planned mass walk out on 78 minutes for the Southampton game.

2.) 27 Apr 2018 18:35:02
Time our voices were heard (or not heard as the case would be) . I am writing a personal letter to Morishi to voice my opinion on how he has damaged and embarrassed my club.



26 Apr 2018 12:47:25
Should be interesting the meeting tonight taking place in London with Sam and Moshi, should have a clearer indication of where we stand next season in regards to management.

The first piece of the jigsaw for me in regards to the team itself, is starting at the back and especially the left back spot.

For me Kieran Tierney should be the top of our list of signings, no more gambles, go for quality over quantity, even if it means bringing only three or 4 in, we need to get those quality signings in.


1.) 26 Apr 2018 14:45:29
bignev can I ask how you know the meeting is tonight as all I have heard is there is a meeting this week I really hope Moshiri does the old thanks but we will be letting you go in the summer speech or it's not you it's me Sam I want someone else.

2.) 26 Apr 2018 17:06:00
I don't understand if true why he has to go London to be told thank you but no thanks sam we are moving on without you. So we're has the rumour come from.

3.) 26 Apr 2018 17:22:29
Been all over the local news Monday saying Sam has been called to a meeting in Londay on Thursday evening with Moshi, I would have thought it would have taken place after the match, but for whatever reason, it was pencilled in Monday afternoon for Thursday.

4.) 26 Apr 2018 17:59:23
Cheers Bignev.

5.) 26 Apr 2018 18:05:16
I hope SA pays his own rail fare lol. I don't care where the meeting is as long as the outcome is a handshake and envelope :-)

6.) 26 Apr 2018 20:01:41
Disagree about Tierney, how can you call someone who is playing in that league quality? the only test they get is in the Champions league and they were poor!

hopefully BIGSAM will go to West Brom and we can get in Pardew/ warnock/ o'neill/ phil brown/ tony pulis because this is what we'll end up with.

does anybody know how much money Mosheri has actually put into the club? The figure we have totally spent is approx £200mill BUT we have sold Lukaku Stones Cleverly Duelofeu for 160-170mill plus a couple of extra little sales!

is he fleecing us?

{Ed025's Note - i would say not SDS, besides the buys wages have taken a significant hike and debts paid, a lot has been invested in the youth and training set up,s as well mate...its not cheap running a football club..

7.) 26 Apr 2018 20:44:34
Not to mention pay offs for brown shoes and koeman, probably paid Southampton a fee for him as well, money seems to be Been spent but we aren't necessarily using it wisely.

8.) 26 Apr 2018 21:35:07
Allardyce is in London to discuss how much transfer money he has to spend. Moshiri is there to suggest which club it will be with.

9.) 26 Apr 2018 22:07:11
FM hasn't put his own money to specifically buy players. EFC was saddled with long term debt and various charges against the stadium, income from TV money etc that was limiting ability to grow. FM's money has injected capital to remove all this debt and provide the club with working capital. It is the club that buys and pays for players out of its own resources in the main. The money spent on the squad would not have been possible without all the money put in by FM to clear the debt. It's not in the accounts as a loan either, so there is no expectation that the money put in, need ever be repaid. People who question FM's commitment need to pull their heads out the sand. Te guy stepped up to the plate and put his own finance in to the club without further need for borrowing or more debt.

10.) 27 Apr 2018 00:48:40
I agree completely FM has moved us so far forward off the field. It's underestimated how important this is. The rest will follow eventually but I don't doubt his intentions so far. It's just going to take time.

11.) 27 Apr 2018 00:52:54
Following on from the meeting tonight, which did take place in London, there is going to be a board meeting this Friday, no further updates how the meeting went.

12.) 27 Apr 2018 08:06:58

Ed02 reply to me is sensible and a very good reply, just cannot understand why there are so many thumbs down for it.

We need to learn from last season, where we seemed to sign a player a Day.

We look to have the left back ready to sign, after the World Cup .

I am sure a centre half, a more commanding midfielder and an additional forward are the tweaks we need.

But agree with Ed, we need to offload some players so it’s a case of balancing and not going all guns ho signing players quick, for the sake of it.

Be a loan move for sure, yet to see a Turkish side offer cash for an Everton player up front.

Not for one minute do I believe it, but if it comes out to being correct, we can all look back now in hindsight why Koeman was adamant that he would not play for Everton again and to look for a new club, quite possibly this could have flared up earlier in the season and kept quiet.

Only a thought but does make you wonder why Koeman was keen to offload Niasse, just trying to make sense if total bull, or if there is something in this or not.

I agree with Lee, it is not all about money and Baines has been a brilliant servent to our football club.

We should thank him for all he has done for our football club and let him enjoy his few remaining games with a new career in the states without worrying about a transfer fee.

From what I saw of him tonight, carthorse springs to mind.

Speaking of players you think wow, how did we not spot him, only for the guy to go off the radar after a couple of decent seasons, Mitchu from Swansea a prime example, followed by the striker who went Southampton a season or so ago who we failed to land, who’s name has completely gone out of my head, Italian forward.

Not sure if true but although Silva was released, I am pretty sure Watford have a holding until June 1st, May be down to compensation they owe him or for whatever else, after that, he can sign, he gets compensation and we can then sign the player, not sure where I heard it a while ago but 1st June was the time Everton were going to make their move.

I am getting more stressed by the hour the closer it gets to kick off tonight, living on Merseyside has been pure helll This last couple of Days.

I can quite happily wait until next week for our new manager announcement.

Well I would take Silva, probably one of the few who do.
