Picture going around of a young gylfi standing next to the Dixie Dean statue in an Everton top . My gut tells me it's false but would love it to be true. Anyone else seen it?


1.) 17 Aug 2017 05:06:34
it is true.

2.) 17 Aug 2017 06:06:19
I posted it to sightings.

3.) 17 Aug 2017 08:29:19
He even went on a tour with the youth team. Shame we didn't sign him up then.

4.) 17 Aug 2017 08:29:53
yea it's his brother who put it up. said he spent a week training with us when he was 12 and was a ballot at gpoodison.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 11:52:26
and a ball boy as well :) :)

6.) 17 Aug 2017 18:13:36
I for one understood the joke Dixie :-)

7.) 17 Aug 2017 18:24:55
Gpoodison must be what they used to call the queue for the toilets :)

Lots of reports saying that Rooney has withdrawn from Uniteds pre-season and will complete a deal by end of the week. Seen different types of deal but latest ones are pointing to a free. He was never going to rejoin us at the top of his game and I don't think he is an automatic starter, but no one can deny that he is bringing much more than on the pitch performances. Plus, I'm hugely looking forward too seeing the best player I have seen in blue pull on the colours again.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 23:33:51
Rooney done deal by all accounts.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 01:16:16
Not sure if this is a good thing or not, time will tell I guess. Other question is "what position will he play? "

3.) 05 Jul 2017 01:40:20
i called this earlier on this was jose himself who blocked waynes return hoping we would pay 20 30 mill for him or they would sell him to china i guess but as many of you pointed out waynes not the type to uproot his whole family and. from when jose decided he no longer wanted him it was always going to happen. i hope he proves his critics wrong even if i can't see it myself, dare we dream of a whole new eleven i mean seriously walshy koeman and moshiri i have nowhere left to pinch please stop or move time forward so the season starts coyb.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 08:40:02
In answer to what position will he play. I think the No 10 role. Now a days he is best coming from behind the ball.

5.) 05 Jul 2017 15:16:43
some people need to take a step back with rooney, seen some awful comments on the web, from blues fans. reality is since the arrival of martial and then the emergence of lingard and rashford rooney has been played in a variety of positions, and been sub'd to make way for youngsters add to that the constant change in managers utd have been thru over past few years, and the manager they have now, who let's face it is the crown prince of buying players. well we've all seen they're results recently leaves utd in a position of needing / wanting to buy players 100mil plus, then they need to offload. i am sure that waynes age will not be a factor for at least a season or so cause he will have desire and heart to carry him thru and i am sure if he gets the wedge he wants from utd i am sure he would play for efc for free we all know he won't but he would i am sure if it was the only way to the neh say'rs your saying no to a player who despite his history loves everton he is a leader a winner and am sure will wisen a lot of our younger players quicker what is there not to like. whether on the pitch or on the training ground he will be a massive influence you just can't buy love like rooney has for us i would expect us to be a position higher in the table because of him altho not sure we will do much better than last season but hoping for more.

6.) 05 Jul 2017 17:31:09
My mate has just text me to say he's signed he heard it on radio merseyside their web site says he's withdrawn from the tour Man utd squad
Big C.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 17:32:55
The guy is still quality, just lost his mojo at the man said. He will go all out for us in an effort to get back into the England squad for the World Cup. May only last one season, but what a season it could be.



30 Jun 2017 17:45:26
Del boy has officially gone back to barce. part of me would have loved to see him stay. If he reaches his potential he could be a top player. However, for a long time he hasn't been able to last 90 minutes which makes me think he isn't working as hard as he could in training.

Good luck to him though.


1.) 30 Jun 2017 20:32:08
Agreed Cropper. I just don't think the Prem is for him. I don't doubt that he will thrive in Spain or Italy as the lad has bags of talent.

2.) 01 Jul 2017 10:20:14
I think the U21's touro showed he is okay in flashes but cannot sustain a 90 minute game as you need in the premier.
Personally I think he would be a bench player at Barcelona and although they cannot sell him for a year a Barcelona player will be worth much more than 10m euros in a years time.



18 Jun 2017 14:47:28
Couple of places saying we are looking at dembele from Celtic. Would be a great piece of business but can't see it.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 17:00:19
think he would be a great signing cropper but would rather have giroud if i'm honest, will dembele do it in the prem, big big risk for the money mate, scottish league totally diffrent than here mate.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 17:08:58
I think that one is wishful thinking sadly. Just can't see Celtic selling him after one very successful season. And even if they were it would be an astronomical figure for a striker untested at the level his fee would command.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 18:35:42
I'm not being funny but I could score 20 goals in Scotland, not for me lads.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 19:46:59
I agree smith666. Spoke to number of Celtic fans and say he would struggle in PL. griffiths is there number 1 striker and Armstrong is there best player.



17 Jun 2017 16:57:13
Don't suppose anyone knows what happened with the sandro meeting? I know he's in the confederations cup so I'm not expecting to fear much at the minute but are we confident in the deal?


1.) 17 Jun 2017 17:03:56
Signing apparently being announced 24/ 48 hours few people reporting it now.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 18:44:14
He's in the Euro U21's.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 20:52:49
Gary Birtley and the Sky commentator have just said during the Spain u 21 very Macedonia match that Sandro Ramie has agreed a move to Everton.

4.) 17 Jun 2017 21:25:57
The above text should read Gary Birtles and the sky commentator covering Spain u 21 v Macedonia have just stated that Sandro Ramirez has agreed a deal and is now an Everton striker.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 23:25:13
Pity on this showing.

Ed, not really sure where to ask this sorry.

I'm not sure whether it's true or not but heard man city are putting a buyback clause into the iheanacho deal. I know this is something the big Spanish clubs like to do but iv not really heard of it happening over here. Are you aware of any clubs who do this? Or do you think this might become more popular going forward?


{Ed025's Note - its becoming more popular here lately cropper mate..

1.) 03 Aug 2017 10:28:07
I think I seen Ed002 say Chelsea have been doing it regularly for a while now. Thank god it was after we got Lukaku. As bad as Martinez was at least he left a whopper of a money deal for Lukaku behind him. Has helped us to strengthen the squad this summer.



30 Jul 2017 11:14:53
Rumours that Watford are interested in Lennon. Hope (and I'm sure we will) either let him go on a free or are very reasonable with any fees. Can't see it doing him any good sitting in the stands if he could be playing instead. He's always done his best when he's played and I believe we should allow him to go if that's what he wants.


1.) 30 Jul 2017 15:41:47
On his day he's as good as anyone, just a bit on the small side and not consistent, be sad to see players who you can see give there all leave, but for him I can see why it would be better to be playing every week.

2.) 30 Jul 2017 16:24:05
If this move helps him then I’d love the club to work hard to do the deal for him. Everton are class and I’d love him to have good memories of playing for us every time he runs out to Z Cars at Watford. His happiness must come first here.

3.) 30 Jul 2017 20:16:09
You boys are showing the best side of true supporters. couldn't agree with you more.

Good luck to him he's a good lad.



20 Jul 2017 10:59:42
Rumours around Facebook that we have a big announcement today. Not a clue whether it's true or what it could be. Just passing it on.

Ed, don't suppose you know if we are closing in on anyone?


{Ed002's Note - Try asking on Facebook.}



16 Jul 2017 22:25:58
Seen a couple of links with Bruno Martins indi. Cb who can play lb, decent season with stoke and has played under rk before. Could be a decent but if true. Anything you are aware of ed?

Apparently we are close to signing a kid called Gibson from Newcastle. Very highly rated cb. Another solid buy for the future if true.


{Ed025's Note - i think he will end up at palace cropper but im not ruling us out just yet mate, gibson is very highly thought of and i expect us to complete that one very shortly..

1.) 16 Jul 2017 22:53:42
Looks like if our younger players stay together and keep progressing, we could be in for a very exciting future. That's ignoring everything else going on in club. Can't think of many other more exciting clubs at the minute.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 22:54:35
Two left sided Dutch cbs Martins Indi and Riedewald we enter the party late on both and both are linked with moves to Palace 🤔.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 14:43:57
Are we in for Gibson?



08 Jul 2017 15:39:21
Seen a few people saying they don't want to waste money on one person because they would rather spend it on another. No one here knows how much money we have so why stress about it. In trusting the club to secure the right priorities and they are doing a dam good job so far.

From what I read, psv are about to sell their number 1 and room is moving to replace him. If it's true, ya can't blame him cause he obviously weren't going to be starting many games for us.

Not saying you never heard it or that he isn't a chef in the kitchen but I question why we are holding transfer update meetings in the kitchens of goodison.

In terms of the overall rumour, if he could get back his form I would love it to be true but he seemed so disinterested as soon as it stopped going their way. Personally I'd look elsewhere.

Part of me thinks we have paid more than we expected to get players in early and give them as much time to gel. Being completely honest, I couldn't careless anyway. It's not my money and not my job to care about it.

If we go for another cb I'd like Maguire or mawson. Can't see it though, at least not this window.

Honestly don't think we need martina. Kenny and holgate can cover until seamus is back. Think we need a lb more than rb.

I know your joking about the fee, but if he has the chance to go and get first team football we should allow him to go (or at the very least be extremely reasonable about fees) . Just my opinion of course.

Think rk has said he thinks cm is fine for now, unless someone leaves of course. Room looks to be signing for psv too. Sure there will be other signings but don't think either of these 2 will be coming to join the blue revolution.

Bill, that all sounds about right, but I don't actually think we are done yet. 1 or 2 more would be my bet.
