I am not one for believing everything I read in the papers etc, but have just read online that Sport Italia are reporting that Everton have supposedly made preliminary contact with ex Watford and Inter Milan boss Walter Mazzarri?

I also don't do kneejerk, but confess to being extremely worried by what is happening under Koeman at the moment. He doesn't seem to want to use wide men at all. Lookman is being given a sniff and Mirallas has been pushed out of the picture altogether. I am sick of hearing about the fact we haven't replaced Lukaku.

the shower across the Park don't have/ play with a big target man but they play quick direct attacking football played to the strengths of Firmino, Sturridge Salah etc. Why can't we do the same for Calvert-Lewin, Sandro, Rooney and Vlasic. Ok, we have lost Lukaku and Barkley is injured as well as Seamus but why are we so poor at the moment? Last season we had Schneiderlin and Gueye in midfield, we had Baines, Holgate Williams and Jags.

Barry has left, Mc Carthy hardly played last season niether did Besic. We now have Gylfi. the nucleus of the side from last season is still there but Koeman is obviously not using them correctly, when they are available. I was perplexed to read over the weekend that Spurs are monitoring Lookman's situation, he is not being given game time and they tried to sign him when we did.

I have already stated on here that Koeman should throw away the i-pad and the sheets of paper they show to the subs before they finally take the field. We are not playing/ moving the ball quick enough, far to slow and we don't press high enough or quick enough allowing defenders to bring the ball virtually into our half before anyone approaches the man with the ball to tackle!

This allows opposition players the time to pick a pass etc. there is no bite in the team and no talking to each other. I watch Klopp and Conte and they are constantly on the move and showing real emotion towards their team. good and bad.

But a mate of mine today called Koeman "The Skittle"? Because he just stands there with his arms folded waiting for us to be bowled over. again! It would appear to me that the problems go deeper and it begs the question "has Koeman lost the dressing room", because even Rooney looks very subdued and Williams is having a nightmare. and the stats show that Pickford has conceded a lot of goals. not good for his confidence or the defence.

I really believed that the appointment of Ronald Koeman was one of the best deals in the history of this Club I have been supporting since 1961/ 62.but something ain't right is it folks? Let's hope He can turn this around very quickly, otherwise I fear that Moshiri's patience will be tested and certain bookmakers are linking "The Spanish Waiter" to take over if he doesn't! Please COYB.

Good post GV. I have to agree that it seems RK has lost the dressing room maybe the players don't like his brutal honesty, maybe he goes over the top when calling them out in the press. But, as you say, something just doesn't seem right. I'd ignore the press speculation as to who will take over if RK does get the boot, we were linked with all sorts of managers before we appointed the current boss. Only the bookies win in that situation by throwing names in who have no chance yet fans will have a punt on them regardless. I'd be happy if RK could turn this slump around but I'm not too optimistic that this will happen. A shame really.

2.) 03 Oct 2017 12:23:12
Golden Vision one of the best posts I have read on here for some time . Summed it up perfectly.
I am now reading in the S*n! Unreliable I know that players are saying RK has really bad body language st training and generally disinterested.
They saying they think HE WANTS TO GO.
I have never in my 60 years at Goodison heard anything like this before.
Also if Usmanov was thinking about EFC he may change his mind given what is going on .
Everton need to act fast but just like the players at the moment we are incapable of it!

3.) 03 Oct 2017 21:28:54
Didn't Koeman make a comment after one of the recent games that if it isn't working then it's best for him just to go? His body language on the touch line doesn't show someone who's particularly bothered either way, which could explain why the players look the same.

{Ed025's Note - i think thats just his natural demeanor mate..

If it is final that Ross Barkley has no intention whatsoever of staying at Everton. for whatever his reasons may be. then in my opinion, set up a swap deal with Chelsea for Batshuyai. They probably value him at around £40m+ so we then get our much needed target man/ striker. Evertonians should recall that this lad had all but signed for us a little while back, his Father told everyone in Europe at that time that "for his son to play for Everton FC would be a dream ". Batshuyai certainly puts himself about and is still very young, but now has Premier League experience and I think Chelsea would be intrested in a deal! What say you folks. Yes. No?
Good Luck tonight in Split Blues.

{Ed002's Note - not going to happen.}

1.) 24 Aug 2017 03:17:02
Ed002 just wondering, is it just the swap proposed by the OP that's not going to happen or do we also have no chance of signing Batshuayi as I think he could be a fairly able Rom replacement.

{Ed002's Note - none of it is going to happen - it is just fantasy.}

2.) 24 Aug 2017 09:40:35
yeh, swap deals usually are a fan thing that rarely work in real life. if they do it is because one club is getting the better deal, cause they have a team desperate to take a player at any cost, so offer a replacement. how any one could get a good deal from an injured player (hamstring barks. ) could maybe make a loan bid for mitchy or the guy from leicester, altho it is a bit late in the day to hang around waiting to find out if a player fancies making the switch. jiminez may not be prolific, but we are looking for a target man someone for our other players to play off we should not ask how many goals he can bring but whether he can hold the ball up and bring people into the game cause this is what walshy and koeman are looking for.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 09:40:03
morning ED02 are there any updates on a striker or LCB that Ronald wants or do you expect it to be done on deadline day when I think a lot of deals will be done with clubs lowering prices to try n move players on to bring their own targets in.

{Ed002's Note - Raul Jimenez was mentioned again by someone last night. If Steve Walsh or anyone allowed to negotiate were in Monaco today or perhaps in the morning the opportunity is there to speak with Benfica.}

4.) 24 Aug 2017 10:50:24
Looks like Raul Jimenez is the closest target we have right now. I think I'd prefer Slimani.

Ed, with Shakespeare saying that they could sell Slimani for the right price is there any firm interest out there for him from us?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what CS has said but he has been expected to stay. I don't know of Everton interest. Aboubaker you may hear about but he says he will not step down from a CL side.}

5.) 24 Aug 2017 12:35:29
cheers ED02 appreciate the reply.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 13:42:31
Hi Ed when you say was mentioned by someone again last night are you talking at an event or something? Or do you mean on here? Just wondering what you mean by that.

{Ed002's Note - not here.}

7.) 24 Aug 2017 16:23:51
Is it shrouded in secrecy then or is this like through the keyhole and you can only answer yes or no? 🤔.

{Ed002's Note - it was mentioned to me by someone in person last night, not by someone on this site.}



21 Jul 2017 22:37:59
Have just read a rumour which alarms me! If true, we are supposed to be interested in a possible loan deal for Sissoko from Tottenham? I sincerely hope not. Apparently Levy is preferring a sale, rather than a loan deal and the report states that we ARE interested? Wouldn't touch him with a smelly brown stick after the lack of respect he showed Everton when we were trying to sign him last year. Please Mr Moshiri can you please finally get this deal for Gylfi Sigurdsson done and dusted as I believe he could be a hugely important piece in Ronald Koemans potentially very exciting jigsaw for the coming season and the future. Hopefully get a top striker through the gates of Finch Farm asap and could maybe rival Chelsea for the signature of Oxlade-Chamberlain. Sky just repot ed that Arsenal to open talks with Chelsea in the next 48hrs over signing him. If we can't get Giroud then let's go back to Ajax for Dolman who is about to become one of the most sort afer young talents in Europe. Not long now Blues. season is nearly upon us. COYB.

Don't believe everything you read. The story is nothing more than click-bait!

2.) 23 Jul 2017 01:20:12
it's now being reported that sissy is going to west brom for 21 mill so i guess the story linking us to him was from spurs as they drive up the price so stupid of brom to fall for it. i guess he can now help the black and white stripes of brom get relegated like he did with newcastle how can a player like this command nearly 50 mill in transfer fee's in just over a year, crazy i believe newcastle paid around 1.5 mill for him.



31 Aug 2015 14:34:04
Not too sure just which way it works, but the Transfer Deadline in Germany & in some other European countries expires at 7-15pm tonight.so we may have to do some business this evening. still think Yarmolenko is on the radar?? We should go out & spend around £30/40m on an attacking midfielder & a quality goalscorer. but will we?

golden vision

{Ed025's Note - thats a NO gv..

1.) 31 Aug 2015 14:40:30
Even if the other countries windows are shut we can still sign players from them up until ours shuts at 18:00 tomorrow, wouldn't mind seeing us signing someone decent for decent money! Just hope the cash being saved may actually be for this stadium! Will find out in October I suppose

2.) 31 Aug 2015 15:30:13
How does that work? Surely if their window is shut it is shut? Also if we can still buy players tomorrow but the rest of Europe can't let's see for any deals involving our targets and their clubs, eg if Dortmund sign a winger then that dude is probably leaving. If Kiev sign a 10 then yarmelenko is probably leaving etc.

{Ed002's Note - The window for buying and registering players varies between countries. Everton can still buy tomorrow from countries where the window is shut but cannot sell to clubs in those countries. Everton can still sell to countries where the window is still open.}



24 Aug 2015 21:36:37
Everton are playing a risky waiting game in my opinion.If Russian Clubs are notorious for dragging out transfer negotiations and that seems to be the set up with Dynamo Kiev over Yarmolenko. then why would Everton enter into talks with another Russian Club over the Brazil in midfielder Bernard? Don't make sense, I think it's a smokescreen to get the Kiev owner to sanction the deal for Yarmolenko. Also just a thought. If, and only if, Stones does leave/ask to leave . should we use some of the cash to enter the race to sign Berahino from West Bromwich, he would be brilliant alongside Lukaku. I hope Stones doesn't leave incidentally.

golden vision

1.) 24 Aug 2015 21:45:22
Or we could keep Stones and just buy Berahino. But would still need a creative midfielder IMO.

2.) 24 Aug 2015 21:59:48
Look, its the red newspaper that said about the Shaktar interest, did it come from EFC? Get a grip, Yamalamadingdong will be sold on deadline day to whoever, maybe us, because Kiev can't turn down £15mil for someone who would go for nothing next season as he is out of contract.

3.) 24 Aug 2015 22:03:16
No for Berahino for me, not worth 25m ever and has a terrible attitude.

{Ed025's Note - i agree swan..

5.) 24 Aug 2015 23:31:30
Totally agree berahino would be a bad signing wouldn't waste 10 mil on him never mind 20

Hard to argue with someone who's narrow minded enough to think Kiev and Donetsk are in russia

7.) 25 Aug 2015 04:22:22
I agree he turns it on when he wants, too unpredictable. We need another striker but will NEVER play two together so we need someone who is happy to play second fiddle

8.) 25 Aug 2015 08:13:45
Obviously MikedeBlue there are some of us with less geographical and World Political knowledge than you. Or just perhaps the more broad minded among us don't believe that Ukraine is not an actual Independent Country unless Putin says so.

Never seen such a poor, abject and utterly insulting display in Italy tonight. Rooney looked knackered and at times disinterested. Everton were second best all over the pitch the result could have been 6 or 7 nil. Absolute joke, we only had about 2 shots on target. Begs the question is there something wrong at the club? To spend £150m and put in a performance like that and especially after the dross that was served up against Spurs. questions need answering. Too many changes in my opinion but I don't think that is the sole problem. If it continues the fans will wonder is it the players. or is it the Manager. No heart. no fight. Everton were 2 yards slower throughout the game. I don't do i-pads and sheets with tactics on. I still believe that you go directly to the man with the ball, close him down or tackle him but at least don't allow the player time to pick a pass so easily. Not one Everton player was prepared to shout at his teamates tonight and there didn't seem to be any talking. No passion or determination or commitment. Feel sorry for our fans who travelled. Come on Blues.

Golden Vision. Close the man down, do not give him space, double up in the tackle and space, tried and trusted method that has worked for decades. The top sides are not top sides just because they play pretty football, they get the basics right, starting at the back, then protection, then creation, then back of the net, start again. My Grandson hears every Sunday Morning on your toes, close the space, communicate. Simple stuff.



09 Aug 2017 23:14:13
In my opinion, this saga with Sigurdsson is about possible "sell on" values! There isn't going to be much if any sell on with him. if we do actually sign him. Everton need to understand the working of Transfer Market today, at 27 Gylfi is in his prime and is a player for NOW, not so much the future, although I would expect him to still be thriving 3 years from now. United have just paid £40m for Matic from Chelsea and he is 29 nearly 30?If we want these class players, then we are going to have to pay big bucks otherwise we will only ever be seen as a "nearly team". Koeman is capable of building dynasty similar to what happened at Ajax. but only if the Club backs him and his ideas. completely! Based on what I have seen in the 2 UEFA Ties and the friendlies pre-season, if we don't get a top striker/ target man and Gylfi in very quickly, then we are going to be in a spot of bother quite early on based on the first 6 fixtures we have. We need reults against these so called top sides or we will be playing catch up from the off. I think Everton are waiting on Gylfi "rocking the boat" at Swansea to get the move . hope so? Get it done Blues.

I don't understand this. I think 99% of us think we are in a better position now than last year regarding the squad. So why would we be in a spot of bother? What does "spot of bother" mean? Relagation? 7th? 10th? I don't know haha.

I can't see anyone who finished below us last year catching up, ancan only see us getting closer to the top 6.

You read it here Jimbobchaddy. must be true ;)



23 Jul 2017 14:58:44
I have just read that The Express is reporting we have now agreed a fee with Swansea for Gylfi Siggurdson. really hope so as Koeman has made it plain that the player is a huge part of his longterm project for Everton moving forward. £50m is a ridiculous amount of money to pay for ANY footballer but that is the going rate in this day and age! Also I was beginning to think it might not happen due to the size of the fee but then look at other fees. City have just paid over £100m for TWO FULL BACKS! Then paid nearly £30m for another. so £45/ 50m for a goalscoring international midfielder with a few years top Premier League experience is probably reasonable? Now maybe Giroud. but please don't touch Remy from Chelsea Mr Moshiri or Grosicki from Hull, we already have decent wide players in Mirallas Lookman Bolasie (when fit) . Looking forward to Thursday night COYB.

09 Jul 2017 01:49:59
Hi all Blues. just would like to commend the Club on another brilliant day of business on Saturday. We got the fee we wanted from United for Lukaku and what a shrewd move getting Wayne Rooney "back home" on a Free and a wage reduction. I cannot wish Lukaku well because of the way he has arrogantly conducted himself and the way he has totally dis-respected Everton since last season. regardless of his ambitions. But like many Evertonians I was very annoyed when Rooney left our Club 13 years ago. after "kissing the badge". He left as a boy and he now returns as a very successful man, still with plenty to offer! I for one am prepared to forgive as I firmly believe Rooney will want to fulfil more ambitions with Everton before he finishes and he will be great for the youngsters and in the dressing room. Not many players see a pass better than Rooney and his distribution across the pitch can prove invaluable. Over the years Everton have bought playerswho have been touted as "finished". "past their sell-by date" such as. Kanchelskis, David Ginola, Mark Hughes and Paul Gasgoigne. I think Wayne Rooney will flourish in a new lease of life back at Goodison and if he runs out onto the hallowed turf once again against Stoke. I believe most Evertonians will forget the past and welcome "our Prodigal Blue Son" home again. More signings to come I believe, so can't wait for the new season COYB.

Agreed GV. Players who are in their later years have been proven to be a very valuable asset to a team. It's all about the right blend of youth and experience. Looks like we are close to getting that.



03 Jul 2017 01:35:07
Just reading through some of the rumours on here folks as well as the Banter stuff. & interesting to hear the views of everyone with regard to new strikers to replace Lukaku, who incidentally has shown this Club no respect at all with his attitude. We have Sandro in the bag and are being linked with Giroud and also Josh King of Bournemouth (who I think would be a perfect fit for Everton) and also the lad Muriel at Sampdoria. But don't forget young Calvert Lewin as Koeman seems to rate him very highly. Just a thought also Blues. I personally last year never doubted from the outset that Moshiri would not rest until he had secured the services of Koeman even when it looked unlikely! I also still believe that Usmanov will buy into Everton hopefully sooner rather than later. He is extremely unhappy at not having a voice at Arsenal despite pumping in millions over the years. He isn't even on the Board. I for one would love to see him join forces again with Moshiri as they are still business partners. Gylfi Sigurdson next please. let's hope for a great season to come. Coyb.

golden vision

1.) 03 Jul 2017 02:15:41
Well I hope that you are right about Usmanov but he has to sell his Arsenal shares first and that may well be difficult. In the meantime Moshiri is doing a pretty dawn good job on his own don't you think?

Totally agree Rich. I placed a comment on here yesterday saying the same. I greatly appreciate that it is Mr Moshiri's money, not mine. but City have just spent £50m TWICE on Full Backs! Sigurdsson is a goalscoring, very creative, attacking International Midfielder with a wealth of Premier League experience, so in my opinion He would be worth every penny of £50m. Get the deal done please Mr Moshiri to help complete Koeman's plan for the future and then move on to Giroud. maybe?

We were strongly linked with him when Moyes was in charge, he hasn't done much since and didn't do anything at all whilst on loan at Watford last season. We can get much better surely. If we don't shop abroad with much luck then we could do worse than look at Josh king at Bournemouth, Just a thought chaps.

Mourinho,Pelligrini,Mancini when He was at City. All these so called brilliant Coaches/Managers would be absolutely knackered and wouldn't have a clue if they had to actually build a Team,and not just ask the "Club Sugar Daddy" . ie. Abramovich at Chelski.The Glazers at United and Sheik Mansour at City. So just how much would Howard Kendall be worth/sort after if He was out there today. He like Fergie built a team from 5/6 young lads,local or otherwise,moulded them over a few years together then built his team around them by adding some fairly expensive players.& they played for the Club.not like these big name foreigners now. Making multi millionaires out of far too many mediocre players at a time when most of us can no longer even begin to think about going to the match,cos we can't afford it thesedays. This isn't football as I know it as it is all about greed!
