Sky reporting we are considering Soumaoro from Lille would definitely take this lad can play anywhere along the back think he could fit in at left back, injury at the start of the season but has played a few games since, probably not the name on most people's lips when we ask about left backs but I think worth a shot.


1.) 11 Jan 2018 14:19:07
Isn't he naturally a cb? Iv only ever seen him once and was cb at least. Even if that is the case then I guess it doesn't mean he can't play lb. However if he is a cb who is ok playing lb then I would prefer an actual lb. Not sure any of that makes sense haha.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 14:44:27
It makes sense cropper I know what you mean, I know who I would ideally like at left back the lad from Celtic could we get him I'd hope so are we looking at him I'd hope so too, but i think SW and Sam are on the same page they got us Tosun so think they will make the right decision.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 14:59:20
Ed said a bit ago that Sam had interest in him from his time as Sunderland manager.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 16:35:48
Isn’t he mainly right footed though? Not that I am a football manager or anything but I would like a left pegged left back who can get up and down the line and put in a decent cross, like what Baines would do during his prime years before the injuries seemed to affect him.



08 Jan 2018 11:19:42
Speculation that us and Leicester are looking at Rafa Silva on loan till the end of the season then £26mill to make it permanent, with Burnley looking at Lennon and Kev gone do any of the eds know if this is a possibility?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything related to Everton and Rafa Silva and £26M seems a lot for a player whose stock is falling right now - he is having a bit of a torrid time.}

1.) 08 Jan 2018 12:04:14
Agree with Ed on that.

When he was at Braga he looked like he was going to turn into something special. He hasn't really lived up to that early promise.

Got a move to Benfica and after having watched him for them and Portugal in the Euros, doesn't look like a player who would cut it in the Prem to me. Plenty of better wide options out there imo.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 12:21:01
Thank you Ed002 and JW1878 much appreciated.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 20:33:04
No worries mate.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 22:59:37
If palace are interested in niasse. How about swapping player and cash for wilf zaha. That wide attack with bolasie on the opposite wing i believe would bring out the best of tousan.



06 Jan 2018 22:50:01
Loving Jan transfer window! Rumours in tomorrow's papers Crystal palace looking at Niasse and we are looking at Mawson from Swansea and Dacoure from Watford the latter being a back up if we fail to get Nzonzi.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 23:37:57
I really rate mawson. Think jags is doing a good job at the minute but obviously he can't do it too much longer.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 01:44:06
I like Mawson as well no nonsense imposing centre back.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 08:17:38
Another Barnsley lad as well we have done well wigh them in past.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 09:47:54
Mawson good young centreback also offers threat at set pieces would be a decent signing but can't see watford selling us there midfielder they only just signed. I see that mirror saying we after another striker and say we keeping tabs on dembele of Celtic and sakho from West ham hope the later is just paper talk but wouldn't mind dembele the lad looks a talent.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 10:13:09
I remember reports last summer of Dembele wanting promises of being 1st choice, possibly because of the world cup coming up. Can't see his stance changing so wouldn't have thought he's move till the summer.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 12:49:49
Smith mate he isn't first choice at Celtic at the minute don't know if that because he had a few injury issues this season but if we going to look at another forward then he might be worth a look at it not as if we are blessed with lots of quality striking options so he would get plenty of games.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 14:31:15
Be nice if we got him. Do we want another over priced striker in january on his it better to wait till the summer.

8.) 07 Jan 2018 14:49:18
duke75, he's been out for months with a knee injury, just playing his way back to fitness. I'd take him in a heartbeaat.

9.) 07 Jan 2018 15:33:24
I know it i difficult to get players from Clubs doing well but why do we seem to be linked with players at Clubs doing badly. Surely we should be trying our darnest to get players with a proven will to win.



03 Jan 2018 22:08:57
Quick question ed002 and sorry if it's been asked before rumoured we are looking at Seri from Nice any truth in this and do you think we could realistically get him thankyou in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Everton.}

1.) 03 Jan 2018 23:24:20
Would like to know what you think of signing Wilshire if he won’t sign for the gunners .

2.) 03 Jan 2018 22:53:41
Thankyou ed just saw a report saying we were looking at him looks a decent player, so many reports of players linked, have a good January eds hope we don't bombard you too much with questions.

{Ed002's Note - There is pleanty of decl;ared interest in him from elsewhere with othe rclubs already talking to Nice.}



09 Dec 2017 11:52:05
Any of the eds heard that we have enquired several times about Alcacer from Barcelona don't know much about him just know he hasn't had much game time would he be a option in January?


{Ed002's Note - Paco Alcacer has been trying to force a move out of Barcelona and they will accommodate that once they have a replacement - the summer would be more likely and although Southampton are interested, he will have potentially more attractive options elsewhere. He is on the lengthy list of players Barcelona will be happy to move on. I am not aware of Everton enquiring "several times" about the plauer.}

1.) 09 Dec 2017 14:39:07
Thankyou ed002.

After watching last night's game I do feel sorry for the fans that pay money to go and watch that type of football week in and week out due to work I can't get to many games but last night proved again that we can't go on the way we are. Sam as always took the praise for the win but criticized the players for the sloppy passes. I think like most fans I would have liked to see a change in the squad there's no creativity on the bench, Tom came on and lost the ball every time he touched it and DCL didn't get on the ball much. Bolasie for me worse player on the pitch just don't know what he gives us.
Moving forward we will have to wait till the end of the season and just hope that the powers that be make the right decisions, again we are not not going to please all our supporters ( unless Sam goes ) , fingers crossed they saw enough of last night to know we need changes as for the fans I don't think I've seen Goodison so quiet which I think tells a bigger story than if we are hostile onwards and upwards blues roll on next season.


1.) 24 Apr 2018 12:04:16
Good shout mate that summed it up, fingers x he will go.

2.) 24 Apr 2018 12:48:56
good summary, i think Rooney was poor again, i was there, the atmosphere again was rubbish, maybe that's due to Allardyce situation, thought Jags and Keane did well enough and Schneiderlin was getting back to his best before he got injured, let's hope the club make a statement soon on whether or not we have a new boos for nxt season.

3.) 24 Apr 2018 13:22:31
To be fair (expanding on a comment I made earlier) when Bolasie switched to the right and Walcott to the left the attack threat improved and Bolasie improved. Walcotts roaming role is to be welcomed. I don't hold with those saying Rooney did nothing either, he sat deeper in the 10 role, made some good passes and put his foot in. Schneiderlin to is a totally different player than 4 games ago, it pains me to say it but Allardyce is right he is improving game by game, a little late some would say and they are right but credit to the bloke, to take all that flak from his own supporters and still come back shows his strong character. I am one of those that does now say, let Sam go but at the back of my mind he may just turn a few fans round.

4.) 24 Apr 2018 17:49:43
Arrrgh! The football (if you can call it that) was bloody awful. In fact it was so bad I had a conversation with the missus and stopped watching it. I never talk to my missus, that’s how bad it was. And don’t kid yourself in thinking it will change if he stays. Because it won’t.



12 Mar 2018 21:03:19
Pellegrino sacked by Southampton it's been a tough season for managers 8 games to go we will see if they made the right choice. I know we have had our problems with Sam but we've not had a knee jerk reaction and we are safe.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 22:26:55
Reckon Marco Silva to Southampton?

2.) 13 Mar 2018 08:28:55
Hope so Eddy.
Fact is, I know who I don't want next season, it's finding one that I do want. Just not sure who that person is. Glad it's not me having to look. Tough decision.

3.) 13 Mar 2018 15:00:59
Think Southampton are banking on the usual "bounce" reaction to save their prem status. Quite clever I think.
Even if it's just a promotion for an assistant. Players do lift it when they fear they maybe playing for their career.



03 Feb 2018 20:36:20
Lookman scoring a lovely goal on his debut.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 21:10:26
Tends to do that.



18 Jan 2018 21:36:18
Good write up on the sky sports website about our season and apparently a segment on soccer Saturday definitely worth a watch, looking forward to the weekend and our game though that wait before the team selection is always a killer will we have disappointment or see the team and think yes we can win this.


1.) 19 Jan 2018 08:54:16
Of course we can mate.



09 Jan 2018 18:37:36
Just got the Everton blog on with the General meeting Elstone on the stage talking finance and of course the new stadium.
"We hope, in a year, to secure funding and planning, and to conclude designs, and then we are looking at 3 years to build on what is a complex site. If all goes to plan, we hope to be kicking off at Bramley Moore dock in August 2022. Committed Yes, Optimistic Yes but the enduring message is there's lots to do"


1.) 09 Jan 2018 19:36:47
Sounds promising Lee1878. Reckon I can shave 12 months of that by giving them the number of the builder who built our local McDonald's. It was up and running in a week. Lol.

2.) 09 Jan 2018 19:49:51
I know smit666 they are all come flat packed don't they up in a week now KFC, McDonalds it's going to be a long wait till 2022.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 20:17:21
I can do a bit of Scroll sawing.

Got to get your name in early guys.

I will do the beer testing, obviously just to help. Hic.

{Ed025's Note - good man..

6.) 09 Jan 2018 21:11:30
I've got a snorkel and flippers for the ground workers.

{Ed025's Note - and im full of hot air smit, we could team up mate.. :)

7.) 09 Jan 2018 21:44:39
This is by far my favourite post this year.

8.) 09 Jan 2018 21:45:53
I could tell you all a story involving myself, the Mrs, the local vicar, Mrs Pendaghast from number 41, some sheep, a snorkel and some flippers, but it's far too rude for these forums.

{Ed025's Note - 40 shades of grumpy.. :)

9.) 09 Jan 2018 22:04:17
Ed25 will censor it for you Grumpy.

{Ed025's Note - going by the cast members there might only be 2 words i will be able to use smit.. :)

10.) 09 Jan 2018 22:17:45
Ed025 Now that made me laugh Sir.

11.) 09 Jan 2018 22:49:39
Not saying it was wild, but our 3 legged Pekingese dog ran away howling and rubbing it's eyes.

Never did see her again. Sad days indeed.

12.) 10 Jan 2018 13:23:00
Am i the only one who is intrigued by the dogs 4th leg and what happened to it.

{Ed025's Note - im sure the dog is as well smit..

13.) 10 Jan 2018 14:01:00
I think Grumpy has some questions to answer here. We need more info.

14.) 10 Jan 2018 16:02:16
Smit mate if I gave a full explanation on these forums I would end up with a life time ban, suffice to say the vicars wife has stopped twitching whenever Rovers name is mentioned.

Just an update on Elstone from my post above apparently all 12 super league clubs have voted that he is the man they all want to lead super league into a new era he just needs to sign a contract which apparently he hasn't done yet.

Hasn't Elstone now agreed to the RFL move? I saw it the other week being a rugby league fan I think it's a good move for him and Everton.

Have literally just read this Guernsey very weird rumour and definitely 1 from left field not a name I don't think that's been mentioned before but definitely worth thinking about.

Did you manage to catch Sam's interview yesterday on talk sport about next season, sounded like he was staying but after his comments about Klassen and his little spat with Rooney surely he's losing the players patience as well as ours.

Couple of big rumours about this in the last few hours GB and Guernsey will wait and see hope it's true.

Tomorrow apparently GB but I'm guessing we won't find out anything till the end of the season, I've just got this horrible feeling he's staying next season.

I think the problem is if he buys and sells players and as you say it goes pear shaped who do you get to replace him as its his team, it's a catch 22 isn't it Sam could stay and lose the first 5 games and we will be baying for blood he could win the first 5 games and be a hero ish.
But we could get a new manager and the same could happen atm I think it's the sort of football we are playing that's getting fans down yes he has more points since he took over than Wenger and 4 behind Conte but look at the other stats we are pretty much bottom of the list for passing, shots, possession etc we need to find our identity again we need to draw a line under this season and see where we go from here.

Good post bignev will be waiting anxiously for the team sheet tmw night to see what way Sam goes, this meeting I think may change how he sets his team up but it should be too little too late.
I just hope the board see sense and say he goes at the end of the season I think if they came out and said he was staying the fans would be hostile and it's not what we want for our football club.

At least we will see what fans think of Sam it is very weird though it will make interesting reading when it's done.
