Does Depay moving to Lyon perhaps signal a move for Rachid Gezzal Ed? Everton were linked in the summer, so any info on that interest being carried over to the current window?


{Ed025's Note - ED002 reliably informs me that his advisors have met 2 clubs danny and that we are one of them so the interest is certainly there mate, but as always it will come down to the number crunching mate, but it does sound promising..

1.) 21 Jan 2017 12:58:42
Thanks Ed, It would seem Gezzal was above Depay on our list of targets then .

{Ed025's Note - very much so i would think danny..

2.) 21 Jan 2017 13:02:50
Have heard we've had a £12m bid accepted but it's a question of convincing the player to come to us.

3.) 21 Jan 2017 13:33:04
Arsenal are the other team apparently talking with his agent.

4.) 21 Jan 2017 13:53:29
The only way he might pick us over Arsenal is more wages being offered or guarantee of a starting berth .

{Ed002's Note - And Atletico yesterday.}

5.) 21 Jan 2017 16:59:27
He wanted a bigger club than us in the summer and it looks like he's going to get that with atletico can't blame him if he chose them they are one of the best teams around. I hope we can find another striker before the window shuts need a pacey tricky type striker to play in a game like today where they have 10 men behind the ball so they can play short one twos heard anything on that position ed.

6.) 21 Jan 2017 17:20:48
Wasn't the £12m bid what we made in the summer?

7.) 21 Jan 2017 14:46:31
Now that has placed the cat amongst the pigeons, why couldn't you just let us be hopeful, just for a few hours Ed02 ;) haha.

{Ed002's Note - Everton are in with a shot.}

8.) 21 Jan 2017 18:07:06
We can but hope eds. but it's a tall order going in against atletico

9.) 21 Jan 2017 23:06:30
Respect ed25 but if ed002 says there is interest by two clubs then we are the latter.

{Ed025's Note - in the past you may be right M, but now when everton come a callin people sit up and take notice mate..

10.) 21 Jan 2017 17:46:37
I love you ed002

{Ed002's Note - Have you got an older sister looking for a little action? Or I could ask on behalf of Ed025, have you got a grandmother still alive.? Have you signed up for the Ed002 Appreciation Society at: tinyurl.com/c6j7t2m}

11.) 21 Jan 2017 17:53:22
Ed is it for a summer move or this month. Thanks in advance

{Ed025's Note - this window if it can be done eddy..



11 Jan 2017 08:56:12
Ed, would everton attempts to get depay in on loan be purely down to uncertainty about his character, or is it something to do with FFP? If it is down to FFP, then I would think if we sign schneiderlin then it might very well conclude evertons business in this window or at least the big money business . q


{Ed002's Note - Everton's original approach was to take Depay on loan and I suspect it would have been for the club to see how he would perform after so long out. Manchester United want to sell him and are talking to other clubs - but they will have similar concerns.}

1.) 12 Jan 2017 03:18:27
Mourinho said in a interview last week that depay is a great lad, that he's hard working and a good professional. And the reason he doesn't play him is that he asked to leave a while ago . I personally think he would thrive under RK



28 Dec 2016 20:03:41
Rumour has it that Barkley has had talks with Tottenham hotspur, and is definitely considering jumping ship, probably not the winter window, but the Summer .


{Ed025's Note - nothing this end on that danny...but it is a rumour site mate..

1.) 28 Dec 2016 20:08:27
The way the wind is blowing at Everton at the moment I could understand if he is feeling a little unloved.

{Ed025's Note - only he can change that danny, everyone wants him to do well as he is a local lad with undoubted ability...but its a 2 way street mate..

2.) 28 Dec 2016 20:20:30
He needs to start putting his foot through the ball on the edge of the area, I don't think he would be getting half as much stick if he were scoring more regularly, but let's face it we are hardly a side that spreads the goals around, it's usually Rom or none, the tactics are killing the few creative players we have off .

3.) 28 Dec 2016 22:18:54
I think a few quality additions and we may well see what Barkley can really do! And hopefully get that hunger in his belly to do well!

{Ed025's Note - i would love that ST..

4.) 28 Dec 2016 23:14:49
So would I Ed, could be the catalyst he needs.

5.) 28 Dec 2016 23:24:14
He needs to get his head down and graft for us instead of sulking. He is going to have to graft his arse off to knock dele alli out the spurs team, so may aswell do it here with his boyhood club. Sounds like tabloid garbage to me.

6.) 29 Dec 2016 00:55:47
If he goes how long before the Judas, jumping ship, Jesus we are driving the guy away, if he does go, I wish him all the luck in the world and fulfills his potential.

7.) 29 Dec 2016 10:49:56
Agreed dentielad. Tabloid garbage. Barkley is probably my favorite player.

For me he has mainly one problem. Its psychological. His decision making and the time he takes to make decisions is his biggest downfall imho.

If he corrects this he will be fantastic. Better players around him? I agree would help things but I don't believe it would solve all Barkley's problems.

Bit more confidence. Which would come with a few wins and quicker thinking. Then Barkley will do us all proud imho.

8.) 29 Dec 2016 11:40:46
Agree Baz. But the same people moaning about him now will be having a go at the club for selling him. Can't be nice stepping on to the park knowing that people are just waiting for you to make a mistake mate.
I can remember the great Peter Reid writing about a time early in his EFC career when he was playing poorly, and it was the support he got from the terraces that spurred him on. He could even recall making a bad pass, and one wag in the crowd shouting "don't worry Reidy your still better than that shite".
About time we got back to those days me thinks.

9.) 29 Dec 2016 12:49:14
It could well be Psychological NBTB not only regards current form but also deep down it could be the broken leg and then ligament damage still plays on the mind of the lad. I like Ross and really want him to be a success in our team just sometimes in the heat of it these things could play on his mind without him knowing.

10.) 29 Dec 2016 16:04:49
Exactly Southern Toffee. The boy is human like us all and what you point out in your post is only a natural reaction from Barkley.

Ed002 will possibly qualifying for the Europa league group stage help Everton attract a higher quality of player in the summer window, I can't see it being that much of a factor personally, and if we do end up losing both of our highest profile players in Lukaku and Barkley then surely it will make any high profile players we are courting think twice.


{Ed002's Note - No it will make little or no difference. Players would not be put off by Lukaku or Barkley leaving at all Danny. If players are to arrive then others need to leave. Lukaku wants a move and the fans and the manager have turned on Barkley so he should look elsewhere.}

1.) 18 May 2017 17:32:20
Sorry Ed, but not all the fans have turned on Barkley. But if they don't want to be there then get rid.

2.) 18 May 2017 20:26:53
I have to say, there every week and from my perspective a very large proportion of fans seem to back Ross. there may be a few septic sorts but don't speak for majority. that said I think most have concluded if a player does not want to be there then best to part ways. For me I think Ross is actually one of the most gifted players I've seen in blue in a long while. it's just consistency. a lot of which may be due to mental aspect of his game. and RK. a move may be the best thing for him. change of scenery. but then again maybe not.

3.) 18 May 2017 23:17:37
Not all fans have turned on him ed002, that's just a silly statement really. This site isn't a barometer for how Evertonians feel, this is one of the most negative sites for blues in all honesty but certainly not the general consensus.

{Ed002's Note - I did not say "all" fans have turned on him. Try not to be such a cretin.}



29 Mar 2017 08:01:18
Ed02,can you send any light based on the information available, as to whether Everton will ever actually end up the owning out right the potential new stadium on the bramley moore dock? from what I have read this far it sounds like we will be tenants on a long-term lease.


{Ed002's Note - I answered this a couple of days ago. The finances have yet to be bottomed out and whilst the club do not have the money to build the stadium themselves and don't have the credit necessary to borrow the money themselves, the local council will be acting as an effective lender. They will borrow the money and then rent the premises to Everton. Eventually, after the debt has been paid, it would be reasonable to assume that Everton and the council can reach agreement over passing ownership to the club - but right now that is many years away.}

1.) 29 Mar 2017 13:12:18
I can't see what benefits there are to owning the new ground tbh. We aren't in a position to buy it so a deal is being arranged for us by the LCC. Man City for all their wealth rent theirs from the council doesn't seem to bother them so I don't care who owns it as long as it's as intimidating as the old lady, which let's be fair will be down to us to sort.

{Ed002's Note - The rent will be at the level where Everton will eventually pay the complete cost of the stadium so I would expect the club and the council to reach agreement over the transfer of the ownership. THis will become clearer when the finances are sorted out and Everton are in a decent position financially.}

2.) 29 Mar 2017 15:01:33
We just got to hope it doesn't go like West ham, Southampton, Sunderland who all struggled when they moved stadiums. There probably be loads of others.



27 Mar 2017 08:32:13
Reading all the available info about the bramley Moore project, I can't gather whether Everton will ever actually own the stadium, it all seems so vague, it's mentioning leases, and rents? are we going to be tenants? any light you can shed on this Eds?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware if the finances have been totally bottomed out at this time but Everton are not in a poistion and cannot raise the funding to build the stadium so there will be loans taken out (two or three as I undertsand it) by the Council. The plan is that Everton shall pay sufficient funds to the Council each year (to service the loans) in the form of rent.}

1.) 27 Mar 2017 19:06:48
I read something similar to Ed. Loans will be taken out to cover the cost but I heard that the council are acting in a guarantor capacity rather than actually taking the loans out. Not sure it makes much difference who actually takes the loan out personally, I think the importance will be in the relationship between Everton and the council and of course the repayment terms of the loan itself. I can't see moshiri putting us in a position where we can't afford our repayments though.

{Ed002's Note - It makes an enormous difference. Everton do not have any credit available to them - or far from enough to obtain the loans necessary to build the new stadium. This is a very significant favour that Everton need from the Council in order if they want a new stadium for the club as the club cannot get the loans themselves.}

2.) 27 Mar 2017 22:41:52
It's very well explained in the Echo. The LCC have a much better credit rating than EFC and therefore have borrowed the money the we couldn't or at least couldn't have gotten as good a deal from the lenders. A business then has been set up to take care of ensuring that we keep up payments with various security measures in place to protect the LCC interest. The LCC have certainly aided EFC and must be recognised for their effort to make the whole project get off the ground. We failed to generate 30millon for the kingsdock project, yet this time we are on course to deliver a stadium that is 10 times more in cost to us. So the LCC have played a major role in helping us to get this one off the ground.

To be fair there are examples in the premier league where clubs have benefited from stadiums built for different purposes e. g. Man City and West Ham. We will need help too and whilst different in circumstances it appears we will be cap in hand too.



24 Jan 2017 09:58:35
I really hope we sign a forward, one bit of bad luck for Romelu injury wise and we will be struggling, with us seemingly putting some form together, and Man United about to resume European football, we could really push to get a place or two higher in the league, we desperately need cover for Lukaku .


1.) 24 Jan 2017 14:04:31
Any ideas who Ron should look at bringing in?



02 May 2016 20:02:15
I think the fans behaviour with regards to Martinez is understandable, but I think that most of it is born out of the fear that Bill Kenwright will be able to grant a stay of exocution, I personally think his time is up, mainly because he seems to have lost the players and has definitely lost the fans, I think he his paying the price for trying raise e expectations, unlike Moyes who constantly seemed doom and gloom mainly about finances, Robertos relentless positivity and praising of the players has tricked the fans into thinking we have a better team than we actually do, also he unwillingness to be flexible tactically has seen the football on offer become plain boring, we did start the season fail ok, but the continual surrendering of leads in matches we should easily have won, have slowly sapped morale, he should be allowed to finish up the season, walk out the front door with his dignity in tact, he has tried his best, but a new direction and change will be best for both parties .

I would like to start seeing a bit of James Mcarthy, I know he isn't going to be the catalyst that will get us scoring 3s and 4s against anyone, but he will get stuck in, and start roughing sides up a bit, nothing gets Goodison off it's seat quite like a boss tackle on an opposition player, remember Neville on Ronaldo 08/ 09 season?

You have to admire the tenacity of the rumour mongers, they still link EFC with players inspite of the fact that all senior members of Evertons board and the manager have ruled out any signings unless we sell players first, selling players as well all know is going to prove more difficult than buying players, especially when you consider the long contracts and high wages most of our surplus players are on, EFC as a club is still learning how to cope with having better finances than we had before, to be totally honest we seem to being going backwards.

As long as better replacement is found for Gana, then I wouldn't worry, he always has his best games when we play against the top six teams and we have significantly less possession of the ball, however when we play a team we are expected to beat, moves tend to break down when he's asked to do a little more than chase down runners, and get knocks on the ball to break play up, he struggles when he has too much time on the ball.

Do any of the Eds have any info on the Andre Gomes rumour? Cue ed002 pouring the kybosh all over it and thus ruining my evening. haha thanks in advance Ed002.


{Ed002's Note - Andre Gomes is available as Barcelona has no use for him. Interest from Spurs and Arsenal has drifted away although West Ham are willing to take a chance and take him on loan - right now he won't be able to pass a medical as he is injured. Everton might have an interest but it smacks of desparation if they do - but I am not aware of any approach to Barcelona at this time, although interest in Mina certainly remains so they are talking to the club.}

Unlikely, but not impossible, Koeman has done well at Soton, but in my opinion he has got a better "team" there than we have at everton and has got 62 points in his 1 season, and between 63 this season with a game remaining, which is good, but I honestly do think he will take us any further than that, yes every manager you hire is a gamble, and if he were to come to us and prove me wrong I would be made up and fully prepared to eat humble pie, but untill Jose has either ruled himself out or is unveiled at another club then I think we should be pursuing like our lives depend on it, we don't get him then at least we tried .

I don't think Jose would agree to be the Everton manager, but untill he actually says no, then why not? Yes the rumours about him replacing LVG are most probably true, but untill he is at Old Trafford posing with a scarf then technically he is available, we are in danger of being g left behind at present, West Ham United are moving to a 50k seat arena, spurs are building one, LFC have a great manager and in the process of making their stadium bigger, Leicester have just won the league, and Soton look to be building a decent, compete time side, Everton on the other hand, are currently without a manager, star players supposedly looking to leave, no movement on a new stadium, making Jose an offer he can't refuse would raise our profile considerably, be more likely to make our star players hang about, and no doubt attract a higher standard of player, he has won trophies at every team he has taken over, we NEED his type of arrogant winners mentality at everton .

I personally think Barkley is being made the scapegoat for some of our problems, our midfield is painfully slow at moving the ball, barry and Mcarthy are that pedestrian in possession that it slows our whole tempo down, Ross need the ball 0layed into him fast, the football needs to be fast, but I am afraid the main culprit is James Mcarthy .


{Ed025's Note - the main culprit is bobby danny, he plays two defensive mids even at home and asks the players to play tippy tappy rubbish and thats where the problem lies for me mate..
