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.

Looking at the form of Gomes, he looks very good quality, some might say it's early Days and also the risk of his injury returning. But some times in life you have to take a chance.

Personally I think we need to strike up a deal in January to try and tie the player down to a permenant move.

No question we need a top class striker, but if Gomes is the only deal we get incoming over the line, That would do for me until the Summer.

Not sure how it works with a loanee, if you can sign them mid season of their loan spell, any Ed's know?

If so then Zouma could also be a possibility.


1.) 06 Nov 2018 08:37:07
Risks worth taking. I remember a midfielder who had a penchant for breaking his legs, considered much too risky by many to even thinking of signing. Peter Reid was his name. Whatever happened to him?

{Ed002's Note - Loanees can be signed on a permanent basis at anytime during the loan. Today or tomorrow even.}

2.) 06 Nov 2018 17:59:28
Cheers Ed, I was unsure on the loan side of things, glad that’s cleared up for me, let’s hope Barcelona are willing to strike a deal.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect he won't be cheap and he would have to think about other options, but Everton can certainly raise the matter with Barcelona.}



28 Oct 2018 19:55:21
The only difference today was our goalkeeper was outstanding, utd played all the right through balls and crosses, that was the difference, too many times we got into great position twice Walcott and once Bernard with a player waiting in the box for a cross, only to be ignored.

Then when we get a decent cross in Walcott and Siggerson are both static in the box, not attacking the ball.

Can also add an absolute joke of a penalty against us.

We need a top class striker who can score on a regular basis.

Time and again over the past weeks, Digmi has put some great crosses in with no quality attacking them.

Get a striker and we will be fine.


1.) 28 Oct 2018 20:25:51
Walcott was a bad buy and I think we are stuck with him he wouldn't be I'm my 11 maybe the bench untill he can be sold.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 21:30:54
I said earlier that Kenny and Walcot appeared to have a good understanding, whereas Coleman and he do not appear to have that understanding, the only reason i can think of is that Coleman makes the same runs as Walcot. It is a conundrum particularly as Walcot was persuaded to come to us on the promise of his being able to wander across the line. Under our new Management and system, we have to have width ergo as I said, a condundrum. We need not only a decent CF who knows where the goal is but a RW and RB in my opinion. Progress for me especially playing this good football at last, is for us to finish at least where we did last season, 7th to 10th with respect is not progress. However, We will beat one or more of the top 6 this season playing the way we do, I am convinced of that. Onwards and upwards starting with Brighton next week.

As Evertonians, we need to all pull together behind the team and manager.

We have three bands at the moment, those that are prepared to give the manager and team a chance to build together, accepting little blips along the way.

Then we have ones who no matter what, will pick at holes, whether it being our opponents not being Barcelona or the away kit being bad, will never give credit or see what is trying to be achieved by our current regime.

Then there are the third band who cannot decide either way, happy to side with good comments along with happy to agree with the doom merchants after a blip.

None of this is helping the team.

For years we have gone from plucky Everton, to a down right shambles.

This season we are looking so much better than we have previously, you can see our manager is trying to get us there, again and it is not an excuse, our season has been hampered by trying a new zonal marking out, suspensions to Richarlison and Jagielka, then an unsettled back line due to Coleman, then Keane injured, Mina and Gomes still out, Bernard now getting up to speed, McCarthy close to returning.

It will take time, but we look to be getting there, our football is so much better to watch.

My only negative on the manager is making too many changes in the cup game, hopefully he will learn from that in the f a cup.

But overall, we are at last looking like a football team.

As Evertonians, we would not let any rival fans slate our team, so let's get behind fellow Evertonians and get our proud club back to where we want it to be.

Onwards and upwards fellow Evertonians.


{Ed025's Note - great post bignev..

1.) 08 Oct 2018 03:16:22
Well said Bignev


2.) 08 Oct 2018 15:07:38
Good summary bignev. The manager has had to make so many big decisions in such a short space of time. I for one totally agree with him making Tom Davies captain. That is planning for the future. As is his constant use of Holgate, Kenny and of course Davies and Calvert Lewin. Yes perhaps he should have not changed the team for the Southampton game? Perhaps he should have been more cautious in other games? But when he arrived he stated that he knew that Evertonians wanted to see attractive football and he would do his best to provide that. The change in my view has been unbelievable. I would say we are at the level that we were at when Moyes was manager. If Silva can now push us on and get us into that top group of teams, that will give us the foundation for investment and growth to be a truly top team again. Both Man City and Chelsea took some years to build their teams. With patience we can do the same.



27 Sep 2018 21:09:11
Have to hand it to the Turkish club, sold Negrado and Tosun, now trying to get Tosun on loan.

One thing you can count on is if a Turkish team is linked with one of our players, it will have the word loan in it.




25 Sep 2018 17:24:09
Tongue firmly in cheek moment but with Everton's poor form and start to the season, do you think we could make a claim of Watford harassing us about Silva and throw in it's affecting our results Watford pursuing Silva claim.

Oh well nothing more to report, thought I would lighten the mood in the room.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 19:23:53
Well just for fun I went on a predictor and plotted all the games to the end of the season. I got us in 7th.

MCFC 102
LFC 92
CFC 91
ARS 73

I was pretty generous with the top 3 so they could have less points. I was a bit mean with us so we could have more points. However 7th would do me for this season :-)

{Ed025's Note - mystic nick.. :)

2.) 25 Sep 2018 21:16:02
Might have to re predict in January when Usmanov, Messi, Neymar and co arrive, well that’s my Xmas wish list anyway, must leave off those mushrooms in Stanley Park :-)

3.) 26 Sep 2018 13:36:03
Nice one Nick, shame you couldn't finish LFC in 6th but I think we will take 7th mate.

Sounds like me and you are in the same boat Ed, I get half way upstairs then forget what I was going up for, and have to come back down to remembe, no wet patches so ruled the toilet out.


{Ed025's Note - its old age bignev, one thing i can remember though is how happy i am with the way we are playing mate, and i can still recall how bad we were under allardyce which is a shame.. :)

James is right, Barcelona wanted a sale and touted him around, but in the end we opted for a loan move instead.

Notice you neglected to mention Richarlison, the player you were pissing yourself over when Everton bought hom.

Like others have pointed out, he only came back from injury just over a week ago, tune into the Chelsea game this weekend to catch a glimpse of him if you must.

Fair play skylark, easy to be frustrated after a loss, but I did say weeks ago, give Silva time to get his strongest 11 up and running and time for the zonal marking to kick in.

Even in the early Days, I felt we had at last got the right manager in charge.

Give him and Brands a couple of transfer window and watch us step up to the next level.

If we are going to pick up points tomorrow, we have to hope we have fair officials who have a blinder, missing nothing, and secondly, when we get our chances, and we will, we need to make the right decisions in laying the ball off if a player is in a great position elsewhere near goal and putting those chances away.

If we can do that and get a fair crack of the whip with the ref, we can win tomorrow.

Knowing our luck Ed, if we appeal, they will probs stick an extra year on ours :-)


{Ed002's Note - I doubt there are grounds to appeal Nev.}

On a final note Ed both Man City and Liverpool have had the second year ban suspended for 3 years, what chance of Everton receiving the same for the second year.


{Ed002's Note - Only if they were to appeal and win it. Some clubs have a history of bad behaviour and not learning lessons - Everton has a previous tapping up issue that has not been forgotten. You cheat, get caught and then you get punished.}

That is what us Evertonians want Ed, a level playing field, take our punishment, but it has to be handed out elsewhere as well, at the moment that is not happening.


{Ed025's Note - i agree mate, and in my view its never likely to..

Not just you Ed, we seem to get shafted every time while others get away with it or not as much punishment, my belief is both Liverpool and Man City received just a 12 month ban and not even half the fine Everton received.

May be wrong but is the kid at Utd now, or is it another player.

May come across as bitter to other Ed’s, but it is simply wanting fairness across the board, City and PSG have got away with Financial fair play by fiddling the books on sponsorship, simulation going unpunished at other clubs, seems the fa have it in for us big time, god knows what will happen on the Silva saga, but you can guarantee Moyes being approached in January will be brushed under the carpet.


{Ed025's Note - it does seem that some clubs are untouchable bignev, im not crying woe is me or anything but a level playing field would be nice mate..
