Well. Niasse deal to Cardiff finally done. Loan with option for permanent deal. Hopefully opens space to bring striker in.


1.) 18 Jan 2019 13:37:26
One out, hopefully, maybe one in.
Ps good luck Oumar and thank you
Big C.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 14:05:19
Agreed big c. Tried hard and handled himself with dignity but always looked like a giraffe on an ice rink. Hopefully a striker in to score some goals and push us upwards.
We just seem to be an emasculated male model atm. We look good just no penetration.

3.) 18 Jan 2019 14:05:46
Good hard working player should do well at Cardiff just didn't work out for us.

4.) 18 Jan 2019 20:46:20
Big thank you indeed. Looked like a Giraffe on an icerink indeed, not good enough for the Prem is another shout. Treated like something off the bottom of Koemans shoe and yet did indeed carry himself with dignity. I wonder then exactly what we think we are looking for. This is the same Niasse that given his stop start, stop start, appearances, still managed to score goals for us and may I dare to say a couple of quite important ones. Ask ourselves this, currently Richarlison - an undoubted talented footballer - is undergoing the same winter malaise he had at Watford (as is his then and now Manager funny enough) , yet this lad is indispensable. Have/ did we ever see Niasse given a run of games, I cannot think of a run can anyone. Any way good luck to the lad. As a final, his wages gone do not cover anywhere near enough, if the rumour about the Chelsea lad is to be believed.

5.) 18 Jan 2019 23:31:46
We aren’t going to pay what Chelsea want for Batshuayi. There’s no guarantee that he’s any better than Tosun. We have goal scorers at the club, we just don’t have anyone with the guts to give them a run in the team.



20 May 2018 10:00:54
In eds review of the day for yesterday, says Lucien Favre has left nice. I know we were linked with him before koeman came. Maybe he is on our shortlist?


{Ed025's Note - who knows geoff?, i still think it will be silva but its not set in stone mate..

1.) 20 May 2018 10:06:40
I agree ed. Looks like Silva but few managers who have just left clubs include Favre and the Leipzig boss and fonseca name is not going away.
We may be surprised by who the new manager will be. Just got to wait and see.

{Ed025's Note - let the fun begin mate..

2.) 20 May 2018 17:23:22
I think Favre is off to Dortmund.

3.) 20 May 2018 18:33:27
Didn't think about that, st. So see 8f batshauyi is available or if he is off to dortmund too.

4.) 20 May 2018 22:43:23
That made no sense. Should read. Wonder if batshauyi is available or off to Dortmund.



31 Jan 2018 19:35:40
Bit of a strange one. Lookman gone to Leipzig on loan.




30 Jan 2018 16:19:37
Eds, given that mesa has joined sevilla, would we have more hope of nzonzi joining us this window?


{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 30 Jan 2018 16:46:50
Good player. Another midfielder but looks like besic is off to Boro and klassen out on loan, plus nzonzi got more quality going forward.



18 Jan 2018 13:39:08
Looks like naismith is off to hearts. Good luck to him. Was a decent player for us. Busy, annoying, always remembered for his hat trick against Chelsea.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 16:42:11
Top bloke as well really down to earth wish him luck!

Gonna be a very interesting summer for us blues. Need a few players in and quite a lot will go, like Jimmy mac, niasse, tosun etc. Watching rondon last night, he may just be a decent player for a couple of seasons for us until dcl or Henry or someone else can develop.


1.) 05 May 2019 19:18:11
Like Rondon. Watched him do a job on Liverpools back line last night.

2.) 06 May 2019 11:40:57
I like Rondon, maybe not the greatest goal scorer but he leads the line well and would get goals and make them be a good buy I think.

3.) 07 May 2019 08:41:57
if you're not going to get a great goalscorer in, why replace DCL?



03 May 2019 17:16:09
We could have been the difference between who wins the league this season. If the city win the league then the goalless derby at goodison would stop the reds from winning it. But if reds won it then pickfords howler at anfield will be the difference.
Hope its the first scenario and we can give them stick for years to come. Hahaha.


1.) 03 May 2019 18:15:47
I said this earlier. I'm not interested in being the ones who ruined their title challenge.
I'd much prefer it to be done and dusted this weekend. With their luck I don't want it going to the wire.

2.) 03 May 2019 22:40:37
Think Wolves will have a big say in it on the final day can see them getting something out of the game.



14 Apr 2019 13:28:26
Can't say I remember this guy but played for us and works part time for us, but what an interesting story.

Eamonn O'Keefe in Saudi




11 Mar 2019 19:34:34
I know we were up and down on Saturday story of our season tbh. Whether Silva stays or goes is not our decision but just want to state that we have exactly same number of points after 30 games this season as we had after 30 games last season but at least we want to score goals and attack. That for me is a positive. Ok, we have many issues across the squad but given time hopefully we can address this regardless of who the manager is.


1.) 11 Mar 2019 20:01:18
Great post Geoff. We are all getting carried away with our own issues with the club. Some don't like the manager, some don't like some of the players, some the tactics and some don't like the direction we are going. One thing is for sure about the posters on here though. They ain't half passionate.

The manager is here for at least another season, the owner is here for longer and the supporters even longer than that.

Let's hope we can push on and get back to being a top team.

2.) 11 Mar 2019 20:35:39
The board have lost patience; and will sack Marco Silva at the end of the season.

3.) 11 Mar 2019 21:26:05
And then a 5th manager will come in and try to tame the beast before he too is sacked. I really want it to work for Silva but the next two games could be pivotal in him staying or going. Both difficult games and much as I hate to say it, don't give us much hope in getting success from either. If Marco is to show us what he has got in his locker, now is the time. Same for the players. They need to stand up now and be counted.

4.) 11 Mar 2019 21:43:34
I want him to stay, hope he watches Chelsea v Wolves great game, we have to match them.

5.) 11 Mar 2019 23:14:07
Hope your right Zulu.

6.) 12 Mar 2019 13:03:57
Only a few weeks ago they came out and said it was a long term project. Since then we have won one, lost one and drawn one. I can't see them making such a knee jerk reaction after the last 3 results.
We have played well in all 3 of those games but didn't get the result in only one. that's football.

7.) 13 Mar 2019 10:57:19
So many great games both in the prem and the championship sadly few involve Everton these days.



10 Feb 2019 11:10:50
One of the things we need to realise is this. Silva is going to get til the end of the season. No point getting rid now. We are not going down. Also if Benitez is the man we are after, he is out of contract at the end of the season. Therefore no compensation required. He has a house on the Wirral and his family still live there I think. My only concern is he won champs league 14 years ago. Does he still have the required tactical nouse or should we be looking for an up and coming manager. I'd love simeone but is he just a foreign fat Sam.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 11:28:53
I reckon he is on borrowed time mate, will not last long especially if we Heaven forbid. loose against Cardiff who will be up for it now they are out the bottom three, he will be walking on thin ice till then.

{Ed025's Note - very much so mate..

2.) 10 Feb 2019 11:57:29
11 games left, 17 days till we play again, be interesting, if no change, I would say it is almost certainly Silvas coaching inability. If we end up hiring Bielsa, I used to wear patterned and hide in bushes, if he needs help.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 15:21:58
Rafa Benitez is working wonders at Newcastle with very little money. I think he is still a master tactician and although he may not take us to champion league team status within the next 4 years, I feel he would definitely take us up a level.

I find the hate for him because of his Liverpool connection a bit absurd. Yes he called us a small club, but I do believe that that was taken out of context/ lost in translation. He was referring to where we were at at that tones as a football side and that when clubs of lesser ability shall we say, played against Liverpool, they set it to stifle and frustrate his side, which we did.

Many, many great players have come from across the park (Sheedy, Ablett, Watson, Harper etc etc) and turned out to be great and loyal servants to our club so why shouldn’t it be the same for a manager? I just don’t get this blind hatred toward anything LFC.

IMHO, he is the best proven manager out there at the moment who we have a realistic chance of landing, so he would be my first choice.

I am surprised we haven't already agreed terms with Chelsea for zouma. Lots of teams but loan players they have during the season. Hopefully we get him. Big strong fast sensible defender.


{Ed025's Note - i imagine a lot will depend on the result of their appeal against their transfer embargo geoff..

Regarding lookman. He didn't play every game in bundesliga for Leipzig. Most of his goals and assists came off the bench. Imo it is an inferior league to our own in terms of competition and quality. Hence spurs walloping current leaders Dortmund.
Lookman got skills and potential to be great player. Just whether he got the brains and attitude to fulfil that potential.

As we all know ed, wanting to move them on and actually getting them sold are two completely different things. We'd all love to move some of the players who are not in manager plans but as fans we have to sit and wait and support whoever wears the shirt on 1st Feb.


{Ed002's Note - One way to clear the decks is to price the players sensibly.}

Hi ed. Not sure if or when rules changed but did there not used to be something about playing so many times for your country?


{Ed002's Note - At one time that was relevant.}

Superb gb, would have been great to hit this form at Christmas. Let's hope we can build over the summer with few decent additions and hopefully zouma and Gomes. Think we'll all head to goodison in August with pretty high expectations.

Great result and Silva just booked his seat in our dugout for another year at least. Let's hppe we strengthen early this summer to give players time to settle.

'Another Dutch teenager, this time Feyenoord's midfielder Wouter Burger, has extended his deal. Burger's new deal, which no doubt includes fries and a drink, also runs until 2023.'

Quality, ed. Absolute quality.


{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, I was thinking you would be able to tell if he was happy about it by whether or not it included a toy....}
