van dyke must be worth 60 mill after that start against spuds.


1.) 28 Dec 2016 20:25:35
Just gone down by 20 million, he lost out on a header by Ali who scored!

2.) 28 Dec 2016 21:23:59
yep noticed and was just about to post but you beat me to it. Funny how the commentators missed what was obvious to us.

3.) 29 Dec 2016 11:41:41
Well after that result surely we should get him on a free now. 😀.

The scale of Koeman's job is becoming more and more apparent every week now. Catch22 without the players we cannot progress and we cannot progress unless we can attract the players and to attract the players we need to be at least top 6.

Ergo as much as we want things to happen in the January window, nobody of quality will come unless we:
A) Pay over the odds

B) Pay wages over the odds


1.) 03 Dec 2016 23:03:31
It does seem that is likely to be the case until we establish our credentials!

2.) 03 Dec 2016 23:25:27
Get the chequebook out farhad.

3.) 04 Dec 2016 18:40:38
Have to agree there is no quick fix to oour problems but let's see more youngsters given a go. Holgate was excellent today and Davies deserves a chance.



07 Jun 2016 06:43:36
Saints are worried that Koeman will come back and raid for their stars. Forster (is he better than what we have - Yes) , Van Dyke (in the long run he is no better than what we have) , Shane Long (about on a par with Naismith and better than Kone (although Koeman has worked with Kone before, we could be in for a surprise) ) .


1.) 07 Jun 2016 07:08:11
I am sorry but I think Long is much better than Naismith and as for Lone and the like it's time for them to go.

2.) 07 Jun 2016 07:15:03
I really like Virgil van Dijk and would be better than Scott Dann for me but I am sure I read that he only signed a new contract recently through until 2022 so would cost far too much.
And Fraser Forster signed a new contract around a similar time through to 2021, but I would look to stump up the cash for a top keeper so worth looking at.

3.) 07 Jun 2016 08:04:02
Can't see Forster coming. Like has been said, he just signed a long term contract. Plenty other keepers about, Cillisen, Mandanda or Leno. If reports are true, Southampton are trying to stop Koeman coming back for players put into the deal. If so it's a shame as I'd like us to try for Saido Mane and Ryan Bertrand.

4.) 07 Jun 2016 08:42:55
No matter what happens I quite like the idea that none of us have known for weeks maybe months what is actually happening I Like the Way Moshiri goes about conducting business. I hope this can only bode well for the future.

5.) 07 Jun 2016 11:36:33
For all we know, there could be a buy out figure, in Forster's contract, Koeman wouled know that, so let's hope.

6.) 07 Jun 2016 12:51:07
is that the same shane long that picked Reading over us a few seasons ago? I really dislike him think at the time he said he never wants to join us,

7.) 07 Jun 2016 18:25:09
Decent enough player I suppose, but he's always just had one of those faces I'd love to smack. Dunno why. Guess he doesn't care thiugh in his mansion and ferrari. Haha.



06 Jun 2016 20:54:02
I too believe the Koeman deal will go through and the compensation negotiations are normal for someone of Koeman's stature in the game. As to the being offered a £100 Mill budget, as my Son In Law says (an RS by the way) that is nothing special, all the Prem Clubs will have a budget of similar size. Unless of course the £100 Mill is additional to the TV income we will get.


{Ed025's Note - it will depend on what that £100m entails BCT, will it be that amount on direct transfers or will part of that go towards wages, agents fees and VAT etc?, i suppose we will have to wait and see but i think this moshiri is the real deal mate..

1.) 06 Jun 2016 21:19:02
Surely koeman would have asked those questions ed and liked the answers he got if its true that he is going to accept the job hope so.

{Ed025's Note - he and his advisors will have shogs, no one outside that room will know what was said but if he does sign on the dotted line then you would expect he was happy with the answers mate..

2.) 06 Jun 2016 21:24:01
Have no doubt whatsoever that he is the real deal. Certainly hit the ground running but there again you do not become a billionaire by being a mug.

{Ed025's Note - thats very true BCT...how did you make yours?.. :)

3.) 06 Jun 2016 21:37:51
cheers ed.

4.) 07 Jun 2016 09:28:32
saved up my threepence a week pocket money till I was 15 and legged it ed25, didn't smoke but invested in woodbines every pay day selling half a ciggy at an exorbitant sum on tick to the smokers that ran out of cash.



26 May 2016 09:13:12
Warnock talks out of his rear orifice, he knows nothing about our Club and should keep it shut. The bloke that should be credited with improving Lukaku 'beyond recognition' is Big Dunc, simple as.


1.) 26 May 2016 10:23:20
Well said bill. I will give that Spanish fraud credit for nothing.

2.) 26 May 2016 11:18:55
Yeah true, but I wouldn't shout it from the rooftops if I was Dunc. The lad still can't head the ball.

Been on the beach for weeks. Different Manager same results. This is a Squad of players that have grown soft and complacent who are happy to be in the top 10 and consider it an achievement. No guts no fight.


1.) 21 May 2017 16:57:05
Totally agree. Look at spurs, guaranteed 2nd but win their last two games 6-1, 7-1. Terrible attitude by half our team, we need massive change to get any further than 7th. Need more players with desire and fight.



18 May 2017 21:33:46
Well Lukaku lad, Golden Boot is gone unless you can get a couple against Arsenal.


1.) 19 May 2017 12:17:35
more likely the golden flip flop?



06 May 2017 21:39:59
Don't like to criticise the Team but that performance against Swansea was unacceptable. Supposed to be professionals that are paid very well. Still another two games to go but this lot are on the beach.




05 Feb 2017 20:18:16
Won 6-3 and Koeman not happy, told my son that he wouldn't be at us folding for 2 goals (other was way out of play) . Of course he was pleased with the win and the way we played in attack but isn't it refreshing to have a Manager like him who doesn't accept mediocracy. Would love us to revert back to the 3 (5) at the back system again, think it suits us. Question what is our best Team to put out now does anyone think.


1.) 06 Feb 2017 11:45:50
I would like to see Schneiderlin and Gueye holding give Macca and Barkley free role to cause havoc in midfield, Macca looks a lot happier playing further upfield and can press. Give Davies time to develop, and use Barry as support to the group. Rotate Lookman and Kev, and leave the big man to do what he does best, and stop bloody moaning when he's not running all over the pitch.



30 Dec 2016 20:19:18
Old adage in Sport and particularly football. You do not change a winning Team.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 06:56:34
Thought he would have learned after his team change selection against Norwich in the cup but nope, yet again changed a winning team.

At least Moyes took a penknife to games, this clown is taking pipe, slippers and oveltine.

I've seen more action in a nuns crutch than what half this shower is putting in.

And Vardy coming in would mean Koeman changing his style of play and for certain he will not do that. Our Manager it is his way or no way.

At the moment it appears Moshri is not yet pulling all the strings. The height of our current ambition is to sell Barkley to West Ham yep that's right West Ham.

Said this about Besic before. I also like him but the way he plays I am afraid he has a very short career span ahead of him.

If the bloke does not want to play for Everton or rather the current situation, Club prospects and contract are not right then he will simply move on and so will the Club. When I worked (my kids/ grown ups have a different viewpoint of my definition) , I was sufficiently endowed with the skills and knowledge in my particular discipline that I was able to pick and choose (up to a point and financial ceiling) . Players have a very short career and of course with the wages and incentives on offer those with the characteristics most in demand can also to some extent pick and choose. Who are we to blame them or demand loyalty.


{Ed025's Note - good point BCT..

So if we say his fee is £100 mill we will take £65 mill. £35 mill discount eh.

while Mr Kenwright and Mr Elstone are still involved in transfers the infamous Everton intransigence will continue. I love Bill and what he did for us but sometimes his love for the Club gets in the way.

Here I am the pessimistic one, once again. Think Mr GB is spot on with this. Firstly we are not aiming at the same fiscal value as City because we can't, Secondly we have the messiah Mr Walsh the all seeing one, Thirdly and most importantly if we do have ambition a statement of intent would be to hit the ground running.

That being the case with Barkley, Everton will be forced to accept a much lower fee for him than the 50 mill bandied about or next year risk him going for nothing.
