Everton F.C I commend you. The signing of Marcel Brands has allowed us to enter into a new era with a very good attack minded side. If you would have told me back in November when Sam was in charge that by the 1st game of this season we would be signing 2 Brazilians one of which was the sought after Bernard and added to that a French international left back, a Colombian international centre back and possibly a young promising centre back in Zouma, I would have pissed myself with laughter and asked what you were smoking. I am now looking forward to the coming season and the football that will get you up off your seat.

This is absolutely dire and if this is what is deemed as entertaining by SA I feel sorry for his wife. This is an advert of why we need shut of this man, the life has been sucked out of our club.

When she is getting a share of £9M I doubt it bothers herbluegray.

It is no secret I dislike the man, but when he stooped so low as to try and claim Unsies win for himself, he showed his true colours. Those colours are not the blue of Everton. I hope the board share the same opinion.

2.) 06 May 2018 17:23:46
I think he meant about his entertaining her both in and out of the bedroom lol

Well. that’s what I was taking from it lol.

3.) 06 May 2018 18:41:55
Sure did Southern Toffee lol.

4.) 06 May 2018 19:40:15
I think nick did as well lol.

5.) 07 May 2018 01:38:49
C’mon boys, we’re better than this.
If I talked your Mrs up on a night out you’d sort me out no?
Let’s shake Sam’s hand, wish him well, pay him a few mill and move on.

The clue is in the name of the site Blue79 that being banter.

Looks like Walsh's times up. Reports say Brands will be joining Everton once PSV have the title wrapped up. This should also signal the end of Walsh's bezzies time at the club too hopefully.


1.) 04 Apr 2018 15:12:46
No one likes a demotion but it'd be great to see him back as head scout.
Why not?

2.) 04 Apr 2018 20:54:03
Well Walsh might well end up as head scout, why not? He would not necessarily get a pay reduction and he is well compensated.

3.) 05 Apr 2018 00:02:41
We then get a top DOF and a top scout, win win for a change. Hopefully we then get a top manager.

4.) 05 Apr 2018 09:01:37
Cant see Walsh wanting to stay as chief scout, I certainly wouldn't.

5.) 05 Apr 2018 12:21:39
Why not? Same money, less stress, less responsibilty. Still reasonably close to home.

6.) 05 Apr 2018 13:12:02
For one its a vote of no confidence from the management team two its not really a sideways move and three DOF is what he wanted to do why go backwards staying at a club that has decided your not good enough for the role you want.

7.) 06 Apr 2018 00:01:41
Daily Fail.
Alleges Moshiri sees Brandt and Walsh working together.
Paper talk obviously.



10 Mar 2018 18:48:00
Right that was better. Brighton came to frustrate us and we never really looked uncomfortable. The starting 11 made it comfortable as no players were asked to play out of position.

Tosun looks like he is getting sharper, Rooney played some class balls from that deeper role, Jags and Keane dealt well with the threat up front and the 2 fullbacks got forward and supported.
It was probably the best team performance we have seen this season, maybe the manager knows what little chance he has of keeping his job depends on how well the team does.

The reception Davy Klassen got when he came on was exceptional and I'm made up for the lad to get some minutes and also to hear the fans fully support him.
The big ask now is to replicate this effort in an away game next week to Stoke, hopefully Theo is fine, if not would like to see Klassen given a start in the number 10 with Gylfi on the left and Bolasie on the right.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 11:01:50
So now you want gylfi back out of position?

2.) 11 Mar 2018 11:45:34
Some players don't always have good games every week, but what they do can make the other team play different, he may make a run, play a pass, but it will effect the way the match turns out, so as a team today everyone played there part, weather you think he played well or not, take one part out and the team play different and the outcome changes, take for instance, if gueue had played with Rooney, would he have been running forward or staying back, which then let's there midfield move forward, which puts us under pressure, then the whole team starts getting further and further back, today we played attacking and pinned them back and got our goals, just because a player may of not played the ball or gave it away, he may of made runs that makes the other team sit back and not move forward, never change a winning team. we won be happy.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 14:06:27
I said IF Theo is not available, as he went off with what looked like a hamstring injury.

4.) 11 Mar 2018 17:47:22
So play Vlasic there. But leave Siggy in the middle.



21 Jan 2018 22:06:10
Is Mori still expected to be out until April or could he be back sooner? Original assumption was 6 to 9 months?

2 points dropped. I felt even when we had 10 to their 11 we looked likely to win the game. Soft penalty to give away and then to concede from a corner as well to allow Bournemouth off the hook. Attacking wise some of the movement is great but again as with Wolves the defending has let us down. On a positive note that's 3 games unbeaten.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 14:36:32
The thing that holds us in good stead is Silva is clearly head and shoulders more tactically astute than old brown shoes.

The team is playing good football. I think we are in for a vastly more enjoyable and successful season.
Carabao is perfect for the fringe players and to rest some others. Lookman starts for me with Bernard.

2.) 27 Aug 2018 17:08:38
MyTeam, have to disagree with you there mate, from what I have seen so far the Team plays exactly the same way as when Martinez was in charge the first season. Our two full backs charging forward in attempt at all costs to increase the pressing game and then not having the nounce to close the opposition flank players down quick enough. Just look at the stats, yet again we suffer from easy crosses into the box.



12 Aug 2018 22:43:44
West ham this seasons version of Everton last season, invest heavily but unable to integrate together as a team. This season is looking like we have finally got it right with regards to DoF and management team. Can't wait for next week and to feel Goodison rocking again.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 10:29:54
I really hate west ham and I couldn't be happier what happened to them over the weekend, but come on, they played Liverpool, who will do what the did against West ham to a lot of teams this season, don't judge them on that game, if it was Brighton or Cardiff, yeah I'd agree, but this is Liverpool, who to be honest I think have a great chance to win it this year.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 17:37:51
Have to sadly agree.

3.) 14 Aug 2018 09:51:38
They are not as good as City playing against tight deep defences and don't see the recruitment changing that. I think 2nd for Liverpool, can't see them winning it. They play amazing football but look at last season united knew how to grind out results. City all day for me.



31 May 2018 16:22:20
Finally have Silva done and dusted. Looking forward to the new season and the new look Everton.
We should all start with a clean slate and forget about Hull, we are Everton, we have some talent already at our disposal and Marco is the man who will mould this talent into an attack minded footballing side.
Young manager with a modern style, something we haven't had for a while.




27 May 2018 00:03:50
Hahahahaha and the new film Carry on Karius.




18 May 2018 15:17:34
Just a quick stat for those saying Silva isn't good enough because he has a relegation on his C. V., well a certain Mr Benitez who some fans, myself included, would like at Everton also has a relegation on his C. V.
Let's get behind the philosophy and the football Silva likes to play and forget the relegation with Hull, all due respect we are Everton not Hull, this is a job that Marco fancies and believes he can make a success of so let's support him and not condemn him before he has even set his stapler down on his desk.


1.) 18 May 2018 15:39:24
I read a lot of good things about Silva, he's liked by a lot of people and has an attacking style that has worked abroad, I think if he comes to Everton he needs the players in and quick and to have a good pre season so Everton can start on the front foot, so much negative football will be hard to shift mentally, hope brand cam find some diamonds, problem is it all sounds like last season.

2.) 18 May 2018 23:59:11
The catch there Simontoffee is a style that works abroad. Look I am not trying to be a sour grapes whinger but the facts and stats speak for themselves. At Hull and Watford he had win stats in the low 30's. This after having initial attacking success until the opposition worked it out. With Martinez and us it took a Season and a half and to be fair the Second season with Europe we were not deep enough in positional strength. Couple that with Martinez stubborness in not caring how many the opposition score as long as we score more and the project was doomed to failure. Koeman never bought into the project in the first place. Dare I say that at Hull and then Watford, Silva has been along the lines of a Martinez and far to similar for my liking. Ed025 aligned me with negativity, I prefer to be called a realist and believe me I do not want to be one of those that says 'I told you so'.

But we should be looking to move away from playing 2 DM and add an extra creative midfielder to the mix. Could play Gueye sitting in front of a back 4 with Gylfi, Lookman and either Vlasic or Klaasen as a 3 behind Tosun and Walcott.

Rafa is to have a meeting this week if reports are to be believed and maybe the result of this meeting will have a bearing on our chances of luring him to the correct side of Merseyside. The top brass surely have a list of potential managers if and when SA is relieved of his duties and I'm sure Rafa will be high up on that list, well I'm hoping so anyways.

Leicester won the league with a team of players rather than a side of individuals, better players doesn't always win the day, sometimes commitment and dedication and team ethics wins the day.

I felt Lookman came inside far too much, at times when the overlap was on he was coming short and bringing a defender with him and not offering a threat on the wing which he was selected to do.

He is a talented young player but he still needs nurturing into a specific roll and keeping him in that roll, he performs better on the left side but finds Bernard and Ricky ahead of him. He is a good player who IMO is not ready to be a regular starter until he learns the game more.

Best bet mate would be to get the soccer bus from Lime street and leave the car at your hotel. The buses leave from the road that the police close by Stanley park so you get away handy. Think its about £4 return so cheaper than any parking.

Totally agree, would have a scary, pacey front 3 with Walcott as well. Need the defence to be on their game as well though.

Funny you should mention Newcastle Ed002 because I was thinking exactly the same, he can have full control there and other than the team which he can invest in, they have everything on place with regards to stadium etc and they are also a one team city.

Coleman dropped off to track the runner on the overlap and schneiderlein just casually walks back, its him who should be closing the cross down but he just doesn't have the positional awareness to do this.
