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..

24 Aug 2017 00:16:18
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.}

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.

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.

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..

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

Never felt so embarrassed to be an Evertonian watching this rubbish which Allardyce has sent out against Arsenal. We will never get any understandings / partnerships while he changes not only the team, but also the tactics every game? Apparently the soccer scientists have stated that most players can't play 2 games per week? Bull. being paid around £80,000 per week or more they should be made to play. After Wednesday night against Leicester I can maybe understand Seamus Coleman being rested after so long out, but not only does Allardyce change half of the back four. He changes the formation and also he completely cages the midfield ., . no Rooney no Sigurdson no Davies. SO ABSOLUTELY NO UNDERSTANDING OR COHESION. BUT PLENTY OF rubbish! Allardyce CANNOT STAY AS EVERTON MANAGE. He has brought Tom Davies on and just taken Theo Walcott (our only threat) off and replaced him with Calvert Lewes. and he has just scored. Far too many changes too often and he hasn't got a clue what the expectation is at such a great Club as ours, we have been brought up playing attractive football. always. Schneiderlin hasn't got a clue and should have been sold. We are in danger of free fall based on this performance. Just my opinion folks. always a Blue.

I have been extremely lucky in my life with regard to some of the greatest players in the world who I have actually been fortunate enough to see play "the beautiful game". I have seen the brilliant silky skills, dribbles and touches of the Great Pele of Brazil, Eusebio of Portugal, Yashin of Russia and Florian Albert, one of the worlds' top strikers. all performing at Goodison in the 1966 World Cup. Over many years of following my beloved Everton I have drooled over some of the greatest players to have ever worn The Royal Blue Jersey. Roy Vernon. Derek Temple. the brilliant Alex Young, Ray Wilson (the best left back I've ever seen) . Then there was Mr Pepetual Motion Alan Ball in that poetic midfield with Howard Kendall and Colin Harvey, the silky skills and elegance of Martin Dobson and Trevor Steven, the wand of a left foot which was Kevin Sheedy, one of the worlds' best ever keepers. Neville Southall. I could wax lyrical all night over some of the gifted players who have been on Everton's books over the years and love Him or loathe Him One stands out for Me purely because of the skill and technique He showed as a raw kid making His debut aged 16. Walter Smith said many years ago that when he took over at Everton He was absolutely amazed everyday in training at Bellefield by this young lad who was scoring goals for fun for all of the junior sides and attempting shots etc which he had no right to be even thinking about doing at that age! Then he made his debut against Arsenal at Goodison and scored that memorable goal past Seaman. that audacious young lad was of course Wayne Rooney, the local lad who went to become one of the greatest players this country has ever produced. at times throughout his career Rooney has been nothing short of genius, maybe not quite in the Messi or Ronaldo mode, but He has been something very special. Unfortunately for Everton we didn't have the finances to be able to keep hold of him and Rooney went on to Captain Man Utd and also His Country. In the twilight of his career Wayne has "come home" and tonight at Goodison Park against West Ham United Wayne Rooney scored an absolutey mindblowing goal from just inside his own half. Rooney over the years has scored some crackers, for Everton (first time round) , for Man Utd and indeed for England. but that goal tonight was technically PERFECT. there aren't many players in the world who would have even attempted that. from that distance, with the control and body shape he showed was incredible and 38000 people should consider themselves very lucky and priveleged to have witnessed such skill from a man using his wealth of experience to get over the top of the ball and keep it down sufficiently enough to get it under the bar. technique, power and precision. oh and just a touch of brilliance. I can honestly say that goal will rank with me as probably the best goal I have ever seen. George Best, Bobby Charlton, Kenny Dalgleish, Thierry henry, Bergkamp, Greaves would all have been delighted to have scored a goal of that nature. What a strike. welcome Home Wayne.

Fantastic post. not quite old enough to remember some of the players mentioned (my dad would add Bobby Collins to the list! ) But totally agree. when we needed a performance, Wayne, as captain, delivered.3 goals and a captains performance. AND THAT GOAL!



26 Nov 2017 23:05:13
My Missus has been an ardent Evertonian all her life, has in the past followed Everton in Europe and was a season Ticket Holder. Not often I have to agree with her, but I'm beginning to see another tilt on the sorry state of our Club this season and the possible reasons behind it all? She always says "You don't always get what you wish for"! Meaning that for the last decade or so Everton FC has been crying out for a Major Investor/ New Multi Millionaire Owner just to compete with the so called Big 5/ 6 Clubs in the Premier League. Kenwright was patient and always promised that he would only sell to "the right people"? Enter Farhad Moshiri to all intents and purposes a brilliant businessman who loves his football& has now supposedly taken Everton to his heart! But it would appear at the moment that Moshiri and Kenwright do not seem to be singing from the same hymn sheet, and the whole infrastructure of our Club is crumbling rapidly. Unsworth is NOT good enough to manage Everton at this time, I fear he is another Colin Harvey. a great coach of the youngsters but not up to being Manager over the 1st team etc. Once again today we never turned up, or maybe I just wish we hadn't, and it was totally embarrassing and insulting. I just can't grasp how or why EVERY SINGLE PLAYER is so badly out of form at the very same time? There is NO FIGHT, NO HEART, NO UNDERSTANDING OR COHESION. in defence. in midfield. and in attack. We have had poor sides in the past but I'm struggling to try to understand how any team could be so abject in every match. Unsworth has chopped and changed the team which hasn't really helped. Rooney came out after the Atalanta game and said that "The boys were all behind Unsworth, training has been great, positive and we have worked hard on a number of things"? He also stated that "The spirit in the camp was brilliant"? Sorry but that isn't the picture Everton fans are seeing on the pitch. I don't know what the answer is, don't know who the New Manager might be, and I'm not even sure who I would like the Manager to be anymore. What I do know is that whoever comes in has a massive job on his hands just trying to boost morale and instill some discipline let alone getting these players, whoever is selected, to play like they at least know each other! We need a Striker, we all know that, and where is Ross Barkley up to regarding his fitness? If we make it safely to the end of the season then we need a whole new back four, midfield needs sorting as well as up front. so major surgery required. Baines, Jags, Williams aren't up to it anymore, Keane is having a nightmare at present, Funes Mori to come back from injury and we need a forceful midfield player who who take a game by the scruff of the neck and find a pass. But will it happen? One thing is for sure. this debacle CANNOT CARRY ON ANY LONGER! COYB.

Golden Vision, we have the ideal destroyer in Besic already at the Club but his playing style ensures we cannot get a consistent run of games out of him (injury) . If we could get him to tone it down a bit then Besic alongside Gueye, Barkley fit maybe even alongside Siguurdson and that area would be sorted. If we do get through this still in the Prem millions needs spending on he back line and it needs planning now so that we hit the ground running. In every walk of business and public service life in this Country economics has dictated that we have forgotten or deliberately left to die (costs) a basic premise and that is to be Pro-Active instead everyone is reactive and we see the consequencies of that especially at EFC.



19 Oct 2017 21:57:30
One of the most inept performances by an Everton team I have ever seen! Something definitely wrong between Koeman and the players. We play like the players don't know each other. No balance understanding or cohesion. no confidence at all. Williams nearly incited a riot and was out of order. Keane needs to wake up he's far too slow with the ball at his feet, and Koeman is making far too many team changes from week to week so there's no consistency. I was one who was chuft when we hired Koeman, really believed he would be successful here. but something is not right? If the change is needed. then it's needed very soon. We don't tackle or press no creativity in midfield. and don't create many scoring chances and when we do. We don't have a striker. This is embarrassing!

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.

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?

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!
