Rumour Everton are after Wiltshire now. How many games would we get out of him in a season. My opinion is that besides the injury record, the bloke is yet another over hyped player, that we seriously do not need. If we are a Club of ambition so far we are showing precious little of it. Who the heck is in charge of our recruitment policy.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 07:40:18
I think Jack Wheelchair has ability but his injury record speaks for itself and I have reservations about his attitude and off-field shenanigans. I see we're also being linked with Phil Jones; dear god, please no.

2.) 14 Mar 2018 09:13:47
paper rubbish hopefully.

3.) 14 Mar 2018 11:31:06
I agree his injury history is alarming but he's played more in the last 2 seasons than he had for many a year before.

For anyone to question his talents? Maybe Stevie Wonder could. He is a very very good player but I don't think we need him. Saying that. he is out of contract so the numbers wouldn't be a risk.

He is better than what we've got.

4.) 14 Mar 2018 13:18:24
If he can stay injury free he's a decent player. If. It's a gamble. Anyway, who's to say Sam will still be in charge.

5.) 14 Mar 2018 18:17:55
Someone is on the wind up over Phil jones surely? (Hopefully! )

Wiltshire played well for Bournemouth I think, and he’s had a good run for a couple of seasons now. Would be worth a gamble for free.

{Ed001's Note - he did not play well for Bournemouth, the fans complained that he basically just stood in the centre circle and they rescued their season when he was out injured, because he was injured for a lengthy spell last season, as he has been again this time.}

6.) 14 Mar 2018 22:06:57
I stand corrected Ed. Steer clear then!

7.) 14 Mar 2018 22:51:57
I always thought he was a bit of a Barkley type player but one who can actually find decent pass
However I do think that most rumours at this time for the first team are simply rumours and speculation.

8.) 15 Mar 2018 06:55:09
Where we not having same discussion about Walcott?

9.) 15 Mar 2018 18:09:08
Who incidentally is currently out injured.



28 Feb 2018 09:21:19
Most fans would want Arteta as Manager / Coach say the blurbs. But I tend to side with the Everton Supporter who spoke on talk sport yesterday. We were a massive Club but we are not at the moment, we want a Manager that can motivate and when he speaks we listen, that man at the moment is Dyche. Another interesting ditty is that apparently Everton did not even pick up the phone and speak to Dyche when Koeman walked away with his millions.


1.) 28 Feb 2018 09:52:56
I love Arteta but just what has he done to warrant the Everton job oh yeah he has worked as a coach at man city our fans need to take the blue tainted glasses off we are not as reported today getting simeone or Enrique we have a chance at fonseca so for me fonseca 1st choice dyche 2nd choice Arteta shouldn't even be getting talked about.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 11:58:28
I do like him but it would be a gamble, so not for me,

3.) 28 Feb 2018 12:51:19
I don't know anyone who wants Arteta anywhere near the job.

4.) 04 Mar 2018 08:48:09
Far too much of a risk. And the one thing we don't need at the moment is a risk.
Hopefully whoever we are looking at has been spoken to and is at least observing what we currently have so changes can be made quickly. I read above re doing things slowly - and normally would agree - but we are desperate.
We need 2 centre halves, a LB, a defensive mid who has a physical presence and is also able to demand and pass the ball (Gana has his qualities but in no way dictates a game - Rooney did when he came on but ain't got the legs) , and a QUALITY striker.

Other than that we're fine!



07 Feb 2018 20:42:05
Glenn Hoddle for DoF anybody. The bloke knows his stuff.


1.) 07 Feb 2018 22:06:18
I think Hoddle would be a great shout! Can you have a word with him.

{Ed002's Note - he would but he is not an option.}

2.) 07 Feb 2018 23:34:39
Ed002: Why?

{Ed002's Note - He has no interest and is concentrating his efforts on somethhing else outside of England.}

3.) 08 Feb 2018 10:11:16
Ed002: thanks for the info.

4.) 08 Feb 2018 10:24:22
He got his soccer academy. Think it's in Spain? One of his graduates pla6ed for Newport last night.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

5.) 08 Feb 2018 11:18:59
at this moment i'd take him as manager.

6.) 08 Feb 2018 22:01:37
at this minute I would take ED01 as our manager.

{Ed001's Note - thanks, I think.}

7.) 09 Feb 2018 12:08:29
and Ed002 as DOF, what a combination.

8.) 11 Feb 2018 10:06:57
Can we have a think about that one? Think Ed002 would make Peter Jonson look like an Evertonian.

{Ed002's Note - Fonseca would be a good option and as I explained before he was the advise Moshiri was given originally. I am not aware of any recent approach by Everton to Shakhtar.}

9.) 11 Feb 2018 14:18:55
Totally agree and i think Fonseca a great option. If we can't get him i'd still be happy with Silva though.
We need someone young, progressive and wanting to make a name and build a dymasty.
Not a Sam Allardyce who wants to increase his bank balance.

As most have read, some reports are now saying that Sam and Staff may well stay and fulfill their contract. I feel the same as most but let's look at it like this. If Mr Moshri does indeed have a long term plan then 18 months/ 2 years could/ will bring the stability that will help that plan well on its way. Looking at it dispassionately if we do manage to retain 8th place, isn't that a job well done on his behalf. The only question in my mind has been, could Unsy or Koeman have achieved the same if allowed to remain in post.


1.) 25 Apr 2018 18:57:41
There is no up side at all to Koeman possibly staying.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 20:07:53
Allardyce will only have 12 months left on his contract and that will no doubt cause issues with players downing tool next season if all doesn't start well. I can't see Moshiri letting that happen. He will either get an extension or the bullet.

3.) 25 Apr 2018 21:45:03
If we do stick with Sam we stagnate for 12 months. We will find it hard to entice quality players with a manager who is going to manage them for 12 months, get off then be possibly dumped by the next manager. Players are looking for ambitious projects to be involved in with a clear plan and direction.

Also we would spend a fortune on players 1 manager is going to use then next year with a new manager we have turmoil again.

Stability must start THIS summer AND with a NEW LONG TERM manager. No ifs or buts.

4.) 25 Apr 2018 21:52:53
There is a few managers that Everton could get this Summer, a window of opportunity which I feel will close if we wait until next Summer, think we need to strike this Summer.

5.) 26 Apr 2018 00:29:46
Personally I feel that if we bring in Brands as rumoured then he will assist in the recruitment of a new manager which is why his role is the first thing that needs to be done.
I can’t see Sam remaining or working with Brands he won’t like that set up so I think we’d look for a head coach who would.

6.) 26 Apr 2018 00:35:52
If it is true it is the biggest mistake Moshiri could make.
The manager is the most critical position in any club. It is the position, more than any other position, that you need to have the right person in place as he influences all the other roles within the club.
There is no increase in stability as people do not know what is going on long term.
What do we tell new possible players? 'We are going to try and stay mid table for a year or two and then get a new manager who can hopefully take us the next step. Hopefully the new manager then will want you so commit 20-30 % of your career to us'

To Klassen, Lookman, Vlasic, Ramires, Funes More of course you have a future - hasn't Sam shown you that

To possible managerial targets your not good enough now, Sams better, but maybe in a year or so

To the fans 'Of course we've got a plan to make Everton grow - can't you see it'
To the rest of football 'STOP LAUGHING'

7.) 26 Apr 2018 00:40:33
I have a feeling Silva will be our next boss. We were desperate to sign him and he has yet to get another job. Read somewhere that a couple of clubs wanted him but he turned them down. May be true, may not be true. Just makes you think that he is holding out for the Everton gig.

8.) 25 Apr 2018 23:41:39
No chance.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 23:14:56
It makes little sense. Why risk it? What's more stable? A manager with 12 months left who is disliked (see questionnaire ahem)
Or a manager that is bought in afresh, with a tricky summer to assemble a few new faces and to be ready for pre season and all the optimism that should give? likely on a 4 year contract, nice and stable.

If we go this way ( I don't believe it for a second) we will surely end up missing out on a pretty healthy pot of managers looking for work. And when the inevitable sacking in November happens, guess what? We write off another season and end up well and truly being the chuckle brothers of the EPL.



24 Apr 2018 08:17:52
Observations last night. Tosun is a good player (Partner him with Rondon? ) but we need two Walcotts or two Colemans, to get behind defenders and deliver the ball, to many times last night the lad (Tosun) came looking for the Ball. I was a bit harsh on Schneiderlin, while not there yet, his form of first season was there at times. Bolasie, ridiculous, no pressure on him and he runs the ball out, or puts the ball to far ahead of him thus easily intercepted. The rest of the starting 11 did okay for me, this was a Newcastle side in excellent form and with some good players, we were never going to beat them 3 or 4 nil. Final comment, done his job now, but in order for Everton to progress Allardyce has to go, he just cannot be allowed to do a pre-season, we need someone in with true ability and progressive ideas. In short this Club needs now to show true ambition not just lip service.




23 Apr 2018 23:02:19
Just listened to Roberto Martinez on Sky Sports tonight. The bloke spoke lucidly and with an awful lot of sense and knowledge of the game. This must be how he comes across in interviews and answers the question 'how the heck does he get jobs'. My question is, why the heck couldn't he have spoken like that at Everton and explained himself as coherently, maybe he would still be here if he had.




10 Apr 2018 13:01:44
Rumours and speculation are just that. Apparently we are going for Blanc (yeah right) . The Blancs of this World while great players are only Managers that succeed because the success is purchased using many many millions of a rich owners purse. Despite thanks for Moshri's backing Everton are nowhere near the level of Clubs the Blancs of this World would go for.


1.) 10 Apr 2018 14:08:32
Stranger things have happened I know it's a weird one but let Moshiri sell this next chapter to potential managers and see what they have to offer as the old saying goes if you don't ask you don't get.



31 Mar 2018 20:05:57
Look at the problems (as far as a game goes not life, touch of reality needed) we have, then look at the rumours of incomings. Does Wiltshire solve the free scoring area in front of our goal. Will Fonseca solve our Management structure (odds on him even contemplating us fiscally impossible) .


1.) 31 Mar 2018 23:56:06
It seems we are safe now so why not mess around with the team. Give some of the fringe players a run till the end of the season. Whether or not SA remains it would at least be of benefit to know exactly what we have to work with and what needs to be done.

agree with bignev as regards Fonscesca, he without doubt is in receipt of far better offers. As to Silva, his record isn't to good is it, I don't understand how he has this reputation. For me I would knock out a few quid on Dyche.

imperialblue, are you on a wind up. I saw the guy make one block and that after he turned his back. You may be getting confused that he makes the move to tackle or intercept but stops prior to contact. It is no coincidence that Jags (in particular) and Coleman were often to be found in the roles vacated by Rooney (a terrible game in the DM position) and Schneiderlin.

Allardyce/ Walsh at the moment it does look as if contracts will be honoured.
Fonseca - Many offers of interest on the table, we are not the only ones from the Prem. Personal opinion, that being the case would he choose us.
Torreira - Good player but as Ed says the price will go up.
Smalling - If available, would he really choose us.
Asamoah - Excellent player, we have the wherewithall but do we have the will.
Lastly - Wiltshire, as Ed says an offer will go in but imo not for Everton and would not like to go further North than Watford.

Aren't there some Everton shares missing and untraceable? Thus in effect Mr Moshri already has the majority required.

I understand what you say billy but as supporters (as important as the Club sees us - and all Clubs do) the majority of us have no real idea of what goes on behind the scenes and how Allardyce comes across to the majority share holder, executives and all the Staff. The players do seem to indicate they are happy.

The game I watched 'Gladwys' saw a No 17 cover just about every blade of grass with our No 2 in the holding DM role. In fact Gana was even to be seen up with the attack further forward than Rooney. I too would like to see us play Klaasen etc now that we are safe but marry that against prize money for finishing as high as possible and I am afraid Football is a business. I do not believe that Sam can take us forward on the one hand but on the other I am old School and would take a 1-0 win playing boring football rather than losing 1-0 playing attacking pretty pretty football.

Good point. Remember the chant '1 nil to the Arsenal'. Remember our team of the 80's hard working, sometimes doubling up in the tackle. Successful sides the two of them, yet many games ended 1-0, we didn't hear much criticism then. Sam has done the job asked of him, his selfrighteous attitude is galling and his claiming of the West Ham win for his own is deplorable. The main question is however, does Mr Moshri believe that Sam is the man to take us forward and having sent the survey out, what was the point if he ignores the results.

Always said I would take 1-0 wins every time. bw2412 Pardew kept us up, are you on the Rasta Woodbines? What Allardyce needs to do is shut up and get on with it, it is opening his gob that winds me up and claiming credit for the West Ham game a good case in point. If he winds his neck in and let the results speak, we may see a change in supporter attitude.

wblue! Gana was very close back to his best as well as Schneiderlin last night. I get that the game is one of opinion but come on.
