ed002 did we tap him up as they call it or did we speak with his agent and put formal bids in for his services? i no we wer very public with our pursuit but was there anything illegal that u no of? from the outside it seems we followed the rules but i bow to your greater knowledge and u understanding of the rules mate.


{Ed002's Note - Everton made an illegal approach for him after Watford rejected a request to talk with him. Nobody is denying that.}

1.) 15 Sep 2018 11:33:54
thanks mate, poor from the club that.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree.}

2.) 18 Sep 2018 14:56:52
Nothing will happen other than slap on risk with fine, if they make an example of us by anything bigger like points deduction then they will open a big can of worms as tapping up has gone on for decades, and I would say most transfers are done with some form of tapping up.

{Ed002's Note - This is not the only tapping up investigation ongoing with Everton and the club has previous history.}



13 Sep 2018 09:58:19
some injury list we have at the minute but i am confident with our current squad we have plenty of cover if you include our 23s who we have available aswell we will still have pickford Kenny zouma holgate dinge, sniderlain Davies siggy Bernard lookman and tosun I would back that team to beat West ham.


1.) 13 Sep 2018 10:39:59
Bernard is injured isn't he?

2.) 13 Sep 2018 14:37:57
play dowell there then if needs be or anthony evans or give hornby a run up top go two up top, we have options in the club.



31 Aug 2018 23:21:39
why do so many people want james mcarthy to leave? once fit he starts every game in this system million percent. i think he is better suited to this system than gana but would play both as j mac can get forward as well.


1.) 01 Sep 2018 13:23:33
Time has passed injuries caught up and taken edge off him much like Besic sadly. Potential but never fully materialised. That said always gave 100% unlike so many of recent seasons.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 14:11:31
Taken edge off? How can people come to such conclusions when neither Besic or McCarthy have played for Everton since there horrific injuries. Fair enough if you want to sell them and you don't think they are valuable to club. Would love to see both given a chance again. Boro are over the moon they got Besic again.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 15:59:58
With you there NBTB very good player, great when we get him back.

4.) 02 Sep 2018 09:44:50
He’ll be first to all these loose balls in the box that are costing us right now, that’s for sure.

5.) 02 Sep 2018 11:34:48
I do love Besic, McCarthy would be ok if we can just keep him away from Ireland .

6.) 10 Sep 2018 19:49:03
nbtb i think if i remember corectly you said you are irish like myself. i think sometimes we might take it to heart when people write of mc carthy or slag of coleman because of this. but i am with you 100% on this one. mc carthy is one of the only players we have that literally put their bodies on the line week in and week out for us. mc carthy unfortunately has become so injury prone its a shame because for me, he was a starter every week for his grit and determination alone.

7.) 13 Sep 2018 09:20:32
I wouldn’t look at this current injury as him being injury prone tbh!
This was a freak injury from putting himself in harms way to clear danger!
I think a 3 in middle of Schneiderlin, McCarthy and Gana
Could be the difference in big games!
Most of the big clubs play 3 cm
All usually technically good but usually only 1 of them up for a fight if it gets physical, that’s why teams like Burnley pull off shocks by being aggressive

I think those 3 all on the pitch at once will cause the likes of Silva and de Bruyne or Pogba an lingard
And especially Henderson and wijnaldum all sorts of problems

So for me McCarthy could be massive for us when fit!



30 Aug 2018 13:21:16
i like lookman but really not fussed if he goes, he is 3rd choice left mid and there talking 25 m for him, let that sink in 25 m for 3rd choice player?!


1.) 30 Aug 2018 16:47:10
Yeah it's great business. Its just that fear He will leave and then go and be an instant star. Then we will feel we lost out big time, on money and a player.

I think if he and Sandro go, we could be a little short too. Its gotten a bit of a joke in recent years to accurately guess what press stuff is true and what is just stirring. If any of its to be believed, our manager wants to keep both.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 20:04:38
Do what Barcalona do, stick a buy back clause in his contract. Just in case.

3.) 31 Aug 2018 09:34:26
I wouldn't let him leave personally. We haven't got the numbers. Keep until january at least.



25 Apr 2018 10:26:04
ed would emery be a realistic option or is he off somewhere bigger?


{Ed001's Note - I believe he is waiting and keeping his options open before deciding, so I guess you never know, but first you have to have a job to offer him. Similar to the situation Arsenal were in until Wenger made his announcement, right now you do not have a job for him to be offered.}

1.) 25 Apr 2018 10:58:54
Spot on Edd001 until their is a vacancy its a non starter unless we go for two managers now that would be a first.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 11:27:45
thanks ed, i suppose am just living in hope that he will be gone haha.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure he will eventually.}

3.) 26 Apr 2018 06:54:22
Ed "eventually" isn't very up lifting sir. Eventually when his contract naturally expires hahaha.

{Ed001's Note - there is always the option of extending it open to the club. Would that be more uplifting for you? ;-)

4.) 26 Apr 2018 10:34:54
Ed001: Oh, you are a card, sir, a veritable comic genius.

{Ed001's Note - I really can't argue with that, it has been said many times before, though only by myself.}

5.) 27 Apr 2018 10:22:44
Has anyone said your very modest too haha.

{Ed001's Note - very regularly. It is up their with my comic genius as one of my many great qualities.}

what are the odds runes mori snaps richarlison tonight haha.




10 Oct 2018 17:39:40
am i the only one who is shocked at the fools online who are calling tosun a flop and hoping he's sold in the transfer window?

Lad puts a shift in every time he is on the pitch has a goal and 2 assists playing as a lone striker which is a thankless role as your only really there to get the odd goal but mainly to make space for the other forward running in.
i wouldn't mind us bringing in competition but jesus let the lad have a season under marko before the he's a flop shouts come out.


1.) 10 Oct 2018 19:53:44
I would like him to see the season out too. I sometimes wonder if he gets too eager in front of goal and fluffs it. From what I have seen he puts a shift in and seems to get in positions. Maybe with another striker to play with he could come good, but Marco will be the judge and jury and rightly so.

2.) 10 Oct 2018 20:30:56
I also think he is a cracking player and would like to see him get a full season at least.

3.) 10 Oct 2018 21:11:21
You are right there Nick mate leave it to the men who know,

4.) 11 Oct 2018 07:52:30
The fans at his previous club adore him. He has played less than half a season with us. He has come from a totally different culture. He is eager to please us fans. Look on the net to see his previous goals! Why are we debating this? Because he has had a handful of games and has lost a bit of confidence? Young Tom Davies is the same. 20 years old and the manager already makes him captain. Scores a wonder goal against Man City. Has a little loss of form and some fans want him "rid". They think they are playing FIFA 2018 I think!

5.) 11 Oct 2018 08:52:46
i agree silva knows best . Its just the online stories i keep seeing on news now, "EVERTON FANS WANT TOSUN GONE" followed by twitter warriors ranting how bad he is, some people don't no anything about football and should not make fools of themselves online.

6.) 11 Oct 2018 10:07:17
I don’t want him gone. He’s a goal scorer who just needs to find his rhythm. And let’s face it. Any striker who hasn’t proved himself in the prem will be as much of a gamble as was Tosun. So let’s not be too quick to offload this guy and end up gambling and getting someone worse.

7.) 11 Oct 2018 12:30:43
Agree Degsy, FIFA 2018 has a lot to answer for. Everyone thinks there a bloody expert.



09 Oct 2018 09:36:14
this obsession some of our fans have with liverpool does my head in, i like a bit of banter every now and then with the reds in work but some people take it to extremes, focus on everton lads and let the reds see to themselves, trust me you will be happier people.
NSNO sould be for fans too, let's show wer great fans and not classless persons who are always banging on about other teams and what there doing. We are everton!

we finally playing good football and we still have people who would rather talk about liverpool and city. why not talk about how frightening our front 4 are or how much keane has improved?


1.) 10 Oct 2018 09:37:54
Could not agree more with your opening line. For some reason half of our fans seem more concerned with being anti-Liverpool than pro-Everton. Every time Everton is criticised they respond by attacking Liverpool (case in point the "stepping stone" debate below) , rather than accept / challenge the criticism of Everton.

Personally it doesn't bother me one bit what Liverpool do. If they play the best football and are the best team in the league this season and win it - well done them, but it doesn't affect Everton at all. The only thing that would bother me about that is my red mates not shutting up about it!



09 Oct 2018 07:38:14
prople need to calm down, yes wer a stepping stone club that's a fact, but if these players want these big moves to top clubs they have to perform to a very high standard for us.
I can live with that as long as when they are sold the money is reinvested into replacements.
People need to slow down kicking off with the eds for simply stating facts.


1.) 09 Oct 2018 09:34:44
We all know that most players want to play for the best clubs and win trophies. Not a problem with players saying what richarlison has. It shows ambition and drive (hazard just said similar and he not getting pilloried)
I am no way deluded to think we are a big club (in history yes but not currently) so if a player thinks they should more to a bigger club then fine as this shows they are playing well for us and must mean we are getting better. We must also be recompensed appropriately which can then be used to find replacements. The circle then continues.
For over 120 years players have come and gone. Some have been good (kanchelskis, lineker, heath) , some have been absolutely shocking (madar, hottinger, kroldrup) and some have become forever woven into the fabric of our great club (Reid, sharp, Cahill, ferguson) .
The one thing that remains is the club. No player is bigger than the club and we will have ups and downs but we must support the club, regardless of who wears the shirt. Unfortunately at present we have certain 'fans' on here who just don't seem happy regardless if we win, lose or draw. Wonder if they would even be happy if we won every game and every trophy?
Plus we have to respect the eds knowledge and opinion (may not always agree with them) as they do a great job on this site. No point going on and on over a topic as it then becomes personal.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 11:28:34
What I am asking for and hopefully we can do as a club is have a decent run of say 3 years with say the current squad ( the the odd addition ) and maybe push for top 4 / silverware.

The past couple of managers have bought large numbers of players at the start of the year and we have struggled for a settled line up - yes players are going to come and go as this is the nature of the beast but we are currently in the second league of the actual league ( top 6 / mid table / the rest ) and until we have a decent run with the same players we are going nowhere.

Most players want to play for the madrids / barcelonas etc but hopefully the likes of Richarlson / bernard etc stay for as long as possible.

3.) 09 Oct 2018 12:23:31
I agree a period of stability would be good but I think you should be looking at 2,3 or even 4 additions each season goodison. It seems to be what every side try to do, from the top teams to sides looking to avoid relegation. I think the managers look at strengthening the side and creating fresh challenges within the squad. That's not to say it always works

The last couple of seasons we have brought in too many especially the season before last when they unbalanced the squad and some turned out to be not totally suited to the Premiership. This close season 6 (plus the young goalkeeper) and, fingers crossed, they are looking to be quality signings that are improving the side but it is a sign of our weaknesses that we had to bring in so many. Great respect though for Brands and the rest of the management for getting them and Silva seems to be getting the best out of them
If Gomez works out I don't think he will want to leave, he sounds like he is looking for a home and I hope he finds it with us. Zouma is a different problem as if he continues to play like he is doing there is a danger that Chelsea will want him back, even if it is just to sell on at a profit. Richarlison, Digne and Bernard, I don't see them moving after just a year. I know it's not worth much these days but we have them on long contracts so, even if they do play out of their skins and want to leave we would get a sizeable premium on any sale.

4.) 09 Oct 2018 12:31:56
I should have also included Mina with Richarlison, Digne and Bernard. I think his buyback clause doesn't kick in for a couple of seasons so I don't see him leaving as long as he finds a place in the side and plays well.

5.) 09 Oct 2018 15:01:54
Goodison i like what your saying mate but unfortunately we are not there yet and honestly may never get to a point were we have star players for more than 2 seasons. That does not mean we can not be successful, look at the likes of porto and to a lesser extent dortmund, they sell there star players quite regularly but continue to be successful, i think that is why brands was bought to the club so when our stars do leave he already has a replacement "next star" lined up.



08 Oct 2018 05:58:35
am throwing it out there, everton fc top 4 by Christmas day.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 08:28:34
That would be nice mate, but I think even with Mina fit and McCarthy too, we are still a bit weak in the central/ defensive positions. Seamus needs to be back too. Young Kenny and Holgate have advanced so much but are still prone to mistakes. Tom Davies (who some on here "want rid") just gets better and better in my eyes. The manager obviously also thinks so too! His engine is 2nd to none and yes some of his passing does go astray in the wrong areas, but we have no other engine box to box midfielders with his energy levels. Schneids just strolls around. Gueye is great defensively, Siggy attacking wise but Davies has it all in my view. He will be our captain for a long time if we can hold onto him. But top 4 just yet is hoping a bit. Richarlison was a snip at £40 mill. I would expect Barcelona Real Juve and all the top Euro teams to be interested by now. He gets fouled and fouled and fouled. gets up and does some magic. Refs need to protect him now.

2.) 08 Oct 2018 09:17:02
we have a hard game easy game run over next few weeks if we win the supposedly easier games and pick up a couple of wins/ draws against the harder teams i think wer flying mate.

3.) 08 Oct 2018 09:18:59
we should be winning every home game until spurs on 22nd Dec, beat a few big boys along the way and am tellin ya top 4 at Xmas.

4.) 08 Oct 2018 09:40:01
Love the optimism Johny, Would be a big ask in my opinion but who knows. If we can build on our confidence following the last 2 league games, get Mina and Gomes fit and showing the same talent as our other signings Digne, Richarlison, Bernard and Zouma. Get Seamus and McCarthy fit we have a hell of squad.

Our front four competes with the best, they wouldn't, in my opinion look out of place in any of the top sides. Some tweaks in midfield and a tightening at the back and we have a really, really good side in the making but let's not put too much pressure on them.

I'm just happy that we have optomism back - alive and well - at Goodison Park


5.) 08 Oct 2018 10:47:09
Totally depends upon injuries, suspensions and refereeing decisions. and of course how well we play.

6.) 08 Oct 2018 11:42:35
Should have said when I was talking about Digne, Richarlison, Bernard and Zouma that we should give a big vote of thanks to Brands, Silva and all of the team for finding us 4 quality players.

If Mina and Gomes turn out to be of the same quality they've done a brilliant job and that's not forgetting our teenage goalkeeper who has been playing really well for the U23's


7.) 08 Oct 2018 12:32:20
They say anything is possible Johny and it would be the best Christmas present ever if we did it. I'd even settle for 5th or 6th ;-p.

i wasn't being funny there btw skylark it was a genuine question mate, its alright saying oh he was never right for us but no one knows until there at the club if its a good fit. i would have gone all out for marcelo gallardo myself but that's just my choice I no 98% of blues wouldn't want him, but silva is here and I will back him with everything I have, i love everton I dnt care who is in charge or who is playing the club is bigger than them all and I love her.

ross is a disgrace, to say he has never been coached properly is a slap in the face to the academy coaches who gave him his career, duncan by all accounts is a top coach aswell by the way, just because he played a certain way doesn't mean he can't coach another way.


{Ed025's Note - i agree johny, ross was given more than enough chances and as talented as he is lacks heart and application for me, him being from my neck of the woods meant i really wanted him to succeed but unfortunately he has failed to grow up and thats disappointing mate..
