We were a disgrace against Arsenal and yes some of it must go down to the players but Allardyce is not a good manager.

We beat Leicester, albeit with a lot of help from the posts. What does he do? Makes 5 changes, changes the system, drops players who have been struggling for confidence but played well against Leicester, continues to erode the confidence of Tosun by leaving him on the bench. Brings back players like Scheiderlin and Williams who just haven't shown the form or attitude required off them this season.

All the confidence gained from the Leicester result blown. Davis' and Tosun's confidence chipped at again. How does Tosun get acclimatised to the premiership if he's not playing. Why buy him if he's not good enough? Where were Sigardson and Rooney?

It's a shambles and it starts with the team selection.

I never wanted that fraud in charge of our great club unfortunately our club don't act like a big club he will still be here in the summer and if he isn't sacked then I will be cancelling my season ticket because the club is a joke.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 09:40:30
I agree, its ridiculous to say Tosun not playing as he is struggling, but Williams has been struggling for 18 months, he really should never ply for Everton again, his performances and attitude are despicable.

3.) 04 Feb 2018 11:04:10
Whoever thumbed down bw2412 could you please come back and say exactly what it is you disagree with.

4.) 04 Feb 2018 11:09:16
DG I’d add Schneiderlin to that list.

5.) 04 Feb 2018 12:03:54
He clearly decided before the game we weren’t getting anything out of it so he fielded a largely second string eleven. He then tried to park the bus. I also loved how he spent the week telling us that Arsenal can’t defend and then decides to not test their defense at all but rather just allowed them to have an attack vs defense training session.

Clearly the guy is a tactical genius.

6.) 04 Feb 2018 16:49:40
From what I can try to even fathom out, he’s sacrificing this game to go all out with his strongest 11 next week to get a win against Palace, do-not agree with it with so many games to go, maybe if only 4 games left and we were playing a six pointer could then think ok fair enough.

If this was the case yesterday, then why not have given Garbutt a run out for game time.

7.) 05 Feb 2018 19:31:54
If we are happy to throw a game on the off chance we will win the next, then we have seriously hit rock bottom. If this is true then no wonder players are looking to jump ship. Sad sad days.

Great news on Sam Allardyce but just as important is the proposed DOF role

Do any of the Eds know what is happening re Marcel Brands?

Personally I think he has more than enough time to make his mind up whether he wants the job and we need an answer off him now, not in another 2-3 weeks.

It's not a case of we are Everton so he should be happy that we want him, but, it is a case of, if this is how long he takes to make a decision does he really want to come and maybe we should look elsewhere.


{Ed001's Note - no idea, he has been offered the job, not sure if he accepted and is just trying to sort out a release or if he is thinking it over right now. He has not rejected you though, so that suggests it is probably just a matter of time until he takes up the role. Though you can never be certain when it is a personal decision like this.}

1.) 16 May 2018 12:02:07
Wasn't he offered the job a couple of weeks ago. The transfer window opens tomorrow. Surely it is in the best interests of Brands, Everton and PSV that he makes a decision now instead of keeping everyone in limbo?

Have we got a back up lined up if he backs out?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure all 3 parties would prefer things to be done as soon as possible but it is a big decision to make.

There are always other options, yes, but he is number one choice.}

2.) 16 May 2018 12:20:01
That's why they get paid the big bucks.

Making big decisions - not differing.

We should give him an time frame - make a decision by Friday or we proceed onto the other options.

3.) 16 May 2018 12:34:16
I think also a director of football would need to know who the manager is going to be. I presume he will have said he can work with Silva and hopefully they will both sign together. I can only hope they have their ideas on the squad.

I think though whatever happens Moshiri is now firmly taking charge. I think the coaches, board and players are in for a big turn around - I wouldn’t be suprised to see at least 10 leave:
Robles, jags, Williams, Galloway, Browning, garbutt, besic, jmac, besic, naisse, Rooney off top of my head.

Personally I’d like Aarnold from palace to replace Baines long term. I’d also like Gibson at Boro.

Give klasson Sandro Vlasic and lookman a pre-season to see what they can do as well as new Nigerian striker (forgot his name)

Pay through the nose for Zaha would be my perfect summer but I think another striker seems more likely. Vardy an option but he is 31.

Have a great summer everyone!



05 May 2018 16:49:47
And yet another attack minded, on the front foot, let's get at them side announced by Big Sam.
Mind you we are playing a team in the relegation zone, at home so we must be careful

What a travesty for our club.


1.) 05 May 2018 18:23:03
I don't think any hearts or minds were won in the first half. I've seen more action watching crown green bowling.

You should be proud of yourself Sam

I'm posting this hoping I'll be proved wrong in the second half - if I can stay awake to watch.

2.) 05 May 2018 18:30:47
Still - we can look forward to our one shot on target of the game in the second half.

3.) 05 May 2018 19:36:09
Inspiring wasn't it?

Lost my mind watching it and I haven't the heart to watch this crap again next season so I guess Sam was right when he said he had our hearts and minds at home.



01 May 2018 02:03:59
Just 5 days to go before our last home match of the season and, unless the fans get the clarity on the managers position that Sam has, it promises to be a truly toxic (I hate that word) occasion as the fans use the last chance to show their opinion of the situation.

Why haven't Farhad or the board clarified what is going on. Maybe several reasons

If it's to be Sam he's not going to just see out his contract. He's greedy and will want a payout at the end of his time at any club so he's either pushing for an extension or negotiating his termination now.

If its Fonseca or Silva I don't understand why there is no announcement. One at the end of his contract and one out of contract, Surely if it was one of them we have had enough time to negotiate their contract and Sam's settlement.

If it's a Dyke or a Howe or a Benitez then I can understand a delay. Their clubs, and probably they themselves, would not want to disrupt the end of season for their existing clubs/ fans and we would want a Sam out - ANO in announcement rather than just Sam out

There a lot of ifs buts and maybes out there but I still feel we need some announcement before Saturday.


1.) 01 May 2018 08:01:17
I think that the players such as Rooney saying that they need stability and SA has to remain in charge, along with Gana saying that the confidence is back and SA has got the players believing again is all we need to hear from the team and perhaps the board will hide behind those comments.

Everyone inside Everton seems to be on the same page, seems to be backing sam and seem to be gelling quite well. Maybe the board don’t feel it’s neccesary to comment on the matter. They’re just hoping that a strong finish to the season is all that is required.

2.) 01 May 2018 09:50:23
I doubt there will be an announcement from the club before any fixture. Why would you do disrupt a winning run just for the sake of it? It may well be toxic at Goodison but SA won't care and it will only damage the clubs reputation. If you don't like the football that SA plays then vote with your wallets as it will have a greater impact than spending your hard earned cash and then whinging about the product you receive. I gave up on the season when RK was sacked Unsy didn't get a fair crack of the whip and SA was appointed. If all the disgruntled fans had done that SA would have been out long time ago unless of course there are that many. A win is a win though so although I don't really want him here I will give him credit for what he has done this season, I would also honor his contract but that's just the way I role.

3.) 01 May 2018 10:53:42
SA90 You are absolutely right, Sam won't care and that's half the problem but the fans will care.

If they are going to keep him announce it now - if you think he is right for the job why would it disrupt? It might reduce the number of people complaining if they know that's what the board has decided. They might not like it but more would get behind the team.
If they are going to let him go announce it now. My feeling is that it would greatly improve the atmosphere for the match and help motivate fans and players.

We made a similar announcement when Martinez left = what's the problem?

4.) 01 May 2018 11:35:13
Didn't say there was a problem just said why would you disrupt a winning streak with what may be seen by some (the players seem to be supporting him) as a negative announcement. Doesn't make sense to me.

5.) 01 May 2018 12:58:05
I have to agree, there is no need to announce anything till the end of the season. that's if anything has already been decided. Allardyce has done his best and kept us up (if that was his brief, and if FM thought we were going down) . He doesn't deserve the sack, i personally don't think he deserves another season but that is the tough decision for FM to make.

The players won't know whether he is staying or going and will back the manager regardless for fear of being exiled (like Lookman and Klassen)
On Schneiderlin, yes he has improved, but where was he when we really needed him? is he just playing for a move? has he had an injury we don't know about? who knows.
For me, him and Mirallas shouldn't be near the squad again, Their attitude is suspect following their training ground incident, and the fact Schneiderlin has been poor for so long.



30 Apr 2018 08:14:50
Can any of the Eds shed any light on what the situation is with Klassen?
I think Davis has struggled with his pass accuracy this season, Rooney hasn't set the world alight the last 5-6 games, Bolassie - I know a different position but he;s not been worth his place
The last I heard Klassen was putting in the effort in training, not throwing tantrums like Schneiderlin and Miralles did, but Klassen seems to be no where near the matchday squad.

Are we just looking to sell him at a loss in the summer? If we do I'm scared he will come back to haunt us.


{Ed001's Note - I am told Sam just hasn't been all that impressed with him. He doesn't have the pace and workrate of Davies or the experience of Schneiderlin and Rooney, Sam particularly likes experience. The lad got his head down and worked but has struggled to adjust to the tempo of the Prem. Right now there is no plan to sell him but I would not be surprised if they were open to listening to offers. Playing as an attacking midfielder in the Prem seems to be a bit much for him. He was described as being like Xavi in his younger days, so a deeper role may suit him better, but he needs to become more physical to cope with the Prem in that role and it takes time to develop.}

1.) 30 Apr 2018 08:39:53
I think, as you said, he got his head down and worked but we haven't then given him the opportunity to adjust to the tempo of the Prem. No games, virtually no squad inclusions and not even U23 matches except one. I don't think you can adapt with just training and in-house matches.
He was captain of Ajax so no mug and as I said previously our current midfield hasn't covered themselves in glory this season. I would be surprised if he didn't move and prove us wrong.

{Ed001's Note - I do agree with you, but the managers are paid to take these decisions, so they have to go with what they think is best.}

2.) 30 Apr 2018 10:23:33
So lack of pace? And of course Schneiderlin and Rooney have that in spades😂
Guy should be given a go in the last few games. Send Rooney on holiday, rest Davies and give Klassen and Beni a go in midfield. What possible harm could is do.

3.) 30 Apr 2018 11:11:37
It could cost the club a significant amount if we loose both fixtures and drop down to 10th.

4.) 30 Apr 2018 13:06:18
But could possibly save us millions in the transfer market.
I'm of the same mind as Woburnblue, unless fringe players are given a chance the club will never know their capabilities.
Remember Moyes shipping out Dier and Mustafa without giving them a chance.

5.) 30 Apr 2018 15:14:25
Mmm? Sa90 are you also known as Fat Sam? 🤔.

6.) 30 Apr 2018 16:45:29
No just answering the post with logic. Don't have a problem if either are played but that wasn't then question.



22 Apr 2018 05:18:19
Just a thought but does anyone agree with me that San Allardyce doesn't really want to be with us either but is just playing the game to get his payoff and move onto the next club 'in trouble'

We've been basically safe now for weeks but no change to the tactics, the team. No trying out Klassen and Vlasic to see what they can do with next season in mind. Trying to talk down talk of Lookman staying (why- is he trying to wind us up? ) No appreciable attempt to win over the fans ( although I admit we're not making it easy for him)

To me, he's showing no desire to stay the full term of his contract but just wants to make sure he is paid up. That's fine by me and just hope the club makes the right decision - actually any decision - soon, rather than let it drag out much to the annoyance of everyone.


{Ed001's Note - what bothers me is he had said, both publicly and privately, that he did not want to do long term jobs any more. That all he wanted to do now was short term firefighting jobs for a big pay cheque, then go back and relax on the beach. So why did he ask for an 18 month contract, unless it was to increase the pay cheque?}

1.) 22 Apr 2018 05:34:27
I think you are spot on. My view is that if he can get this contact paid up he will be happy and will have a nice rest until Christmas until the next panicking club comes along.

Good luck to him - just leave us alone.

2.) 22 Apr 2018 10:42:47
Sam Allerdyce Everton manager should never have been a sentence that we had to use. He should never have been given 1 interview let alone dictate terms at a second one. What you can't deny is he ain't soft, he knew from the off we weren't in the brown stuff as much as the powers that be thought and he preyed on that weakness by getting a guaranteed 12 month payoff because deep down he knew us fans were never going to be happy with what he brings.
I just hope that the recruitment of the new manager is done efficiently and not a last minute panic. We should have sounded out potential candidates already to see if we have a chance of recruiting them.
We won't get Fonseca as he basically has Champions League and domestic glory in the bag at his current club so other than him being money motivated, which if he is then realistically he is doing the same as Sam, then we need to look closer to home and maybe look at Dyche or Rafa.

Hopefully the latest news regarding Brands is correct and the snowball has started to roll down the mountain.

The lack of any firm reports of an Allardyce replacement though is worrying to me. We are linked with dozens of replacements but none seem to be done deals.

With the World cup interfering with the close season we need to jump out of the starting blocks straight after our last match. I just hope all the dominos are set up

Just to clarify I never really took much notice about the small club comments. To me, it was a bad attempt at Scouse mickey taking but I know a fair few Blues, Kenwright included who took it seriously. I would prefer Silva but would be more than happy if Benitez got it

ABS, anyone but Sam.

Personally I'd prefer Dyche but could live with any of the five I named. there would be some Everton fans still anti Benitez because of his comments but I think he could win them over.

SA90 I don't agree with most of your posts but welcome a different view being expressed. we are probably both blessed with 20/ 20 hindsight and a C- in foresight
Don't stop posting. We are all trying to be objective but see it from different angles.
I hope one day (soon I hope) we will have a manager we can both get behind and be on here with hope in our hearts, not arguing the toss over Big Sam.

I think whoever we get there will be people with doubts.
Fonseca - no Premiership experience
Silva - not the best record in the Premiership but with a poor Hull side and a Watford side affected by our interest
Howe - a bit of a Martinez as far as focus on defence
Dyche - A bit of an Allardyce in how he plays sometimes but who gets the Everton philosophy and has developed Burnley into top 7 side
Benitez - could he manage a 'small club' (his words not mine)

Whoever it is ( and please, please let there be change) WE and the board needs to give them the support and the patience we gave Kendall the first time.


{Ed0333's Note - I think Benitez would take the Everton job. Circumstances change, managers and situations change with time. I think he’d be a great fit for you guys. His still has a family home there, he knows the area, he doesn’t need to assimilate, he speaks English better than most English people and he has humongous Premiership experience. He has all the right tools mate, he’s a winner, he improves players without a shadow of a doubt and given some money he could do some real damage. I honestly think Everton fans would accept him as well.

Enough now DFS. You've made your views on Silva perfectly clear several times now.

How we expect to attract any manager when all we do is slag anybody off associated with the position is beyond me.

Can we all just wait until a decision is made (hopefully by people with more information / knowledge than us) and then get behind them 100 %.

The simple fact is Stig is that Kenwright will be remembered favourably in Everton history, you and KEIOC will not even be remembered.

It was you that wanted to rake up old coals. Seems like they were too hot for you.

My take is that Everton have a lot to thank Bill Kenwright for. He is a true Evertonian who has put the club first every time. Sure, with 50/ 50 hindsight vision he might have made a few mistakes along the way but without him we might have been another Sunderland, Birmingham or Notts Forest.

Stop just seeing what you think is the bad and look at where we are and what we could have been. He doesn't deserve all the bad mouthing.
