And there it is 09.50 16/ 5/ 18 big Sam finally gone now let's enjoy the summer.


1.) 16 May 2018 10:37:05
Fantastic news mate.

2.) 16 May 2018 10:38:59
Would like to add, thank you BS for your 7 months in charge. You got us out of a troubled situation. And got us to finish 8th. Which would have been a dream for most of us at the point he picked up the team. But he isn't the type of manager to get us to the next stage. Push into the top 4. Looks a bit of a pipe dream looking at at how we played in comparison to the those above us. I am now excited again for next year now that BIG Sam has gone and rumoured with some big (ish) names. Silva would be a great signing. My preferred choice would be Fonseca. But silva is who I wanted 7 months ago. So I would be very happy with him. Who ever it is: let's GET BEHIND HIM AND let's GET BACK TO THE TOP WHERE WE BELONG! Could be the last few seasons in goodison park, let's make it shake!

3.) 16 May 2018 13:26:22
I think you hit the nail on the head EFC. SA was the manager needed at the time to stabilize the team and stave of relegation fears. No, it was not pretty, but it worked.

To progress the club's aspirations and achieve European football and hunt silverware will take a whole new management team and front office. This is happening.

1. Thank you Big Sam, Little Sam, and company for helping the club. I wish you fellows well.

2. Let us name a DOF and manager soon so we can plan for next season and make proper targeted acquisitions.

3. And get behind whomever Mr. Mo hires and support the club.

4.) 16 May 2018 13:35:42
I thought out of them all Sammy Lee at least tried to get the players moving forward and gave his best shot, cannot fault his enthusiasm or determination so on that I hope Little Sam all the best in his future.

5.) 16 May 2018 14:37:52
It's a shame they never announced it earlier, to get rid of the negative atmosphere. I would of stayed past the final whistle to give the 2 Sams a clap and good send off. Sam did the job asked of him.
Now we need to start a new project and hope it's more successful this time.



10 May 2018 20:46:15
Phil McNulty don't know how reliable but has stated that Brands and a new CEO are on there way into the club with Sam's future in the balance apparently lots going on behind the scenes at the club like I said don't know how reliable.




10 May 2018 13:21:13
Just had a notification on my phone from Sky saying Rooney has agreed to join DC United if true will wish him well . I know he was unsure about his future and the Sam will he or won't he I wonder if he's heard what is happening next season.


1.) 10 May 2018 13:49:20
That's what I'm worried about, I hope this doesn't mean he knows Sam is staying. Think the move makes sense for both parties but you'd think he'd wait a bit longer if he thought a new manager was coming in.

2.) 10 May 2018 13:50:55
any bitter feeling as he leaves again Lee? realised times are tougher than he thought and jumped ship? or genuinely just wants to play football?

3.) 10 May 2018 14:41:29
I think he just wants to play football and knows he will be a bit part player so good luck to him if it's true brands is coming in he wants young pacey players and unfortunately Rooney doesn't fit into that.

4.) 10 May 2018 14:53:43
I think he wants to play football wblue and good on him think he still has something to give on the pitch so I think the MLS will benefit from him being there. We got him back for a season and i'm glad I got to see him in a blue kit again even though it wasn't the Rooney of old once a blue always a blue.



03 May 2018 09:44:38
Rumours today that Henry Onyekuru's loan deal is being extended by another season, I was personally looking forward to seeing him in a blue shirt next season, definitely better than Bolasie just don't understand this one.


1.) 03 May 2018 10:44:02
100% agree with you on this one. He was one of the very few reasons in which we can be showing some optimism for next season.

Looks a cracking player, likely has mistakes in him, but I know for certain I would rather see the lad try some audacious football, fail on occasion but eventually become successful with it!

All we need now is a manager willing to give game time to players like him.

2.) 03 May 2018 11:45:06
does it have anything to do with his work permit? only thing i can think of.

3.) 03 May 2018 11:46:31
Maybe a work permit issue?

4.) 03 May 2018 12:14:08
If he is selected for and plays for Nigeria in the World Cup, then that’d probably sort out the work permit issue.
Probably more a case that he isn’t wanted by Allardyce and he’ll be another young talent (like Lookman) who’ll leave us under this manager and will become a success elsewhere.
How depressing is it - not only watching Everton at present, but also the prospect of it not improving under Allardyce?
Who the **** is running our club? What’s the direction? Why’s there no clarity? Where’s the goddam leadership?

5.) 03 May 2018 12:15:20
I think he needs to play every game in the world cup to have a chance of qualifying for a permit.
Although you can apply under exceptional circumstances, maybe if we tell whoever makes the decision that Bolasie is our only other player in his position then that would qualify as an exceptional circumstance.

6.) 03 May 2018 15:23:55
Don't know about anyone else but I am just getting really ****ed off with all the negativity and blame been thrown at SA. Okay so some of you really hate the bloke but why post quite frankly nonsensical statements about how much control he has over every aspect and ruining every thing about EFC. Like others before me and no doubt others in the future I'm taking a break from posting as trying to have a sensible debate on here is at the moment pointless.

{Ed025's Note - i think there is a lot of negativity sa and that is mainly due to the uncertainty of the managers position, hopefully it will get sorted soon and we can be positive again and look forward to next season mate, my advice would be to just ignore the posts you find irksome rather than not post..

7.) 03 May 2018 16:20:27
The question isn’t about how much control SA may or may not have, BUT who is actually in control and making the decisions - ‘cause there’s no unity, clarity, direction or leadership appearing from the heirarchy (FM. BK, etc. ) .

8.) 04 May 2018 04:16:45
SA90 I don't agree with most of your posts but welcome a different view being expressed. we are probably both blessed with 20/ 20 hindsight and a C- in foresight
Don't stop posting. We are all trying to be objective but see it from different angles.
I hope one day (soon I hope) we will have a manager we can both get behind and be on here with hope in our hearts, not arguing the toss over Big Sam.



28 Apr 2018 23:14:50
Interesting quote from Alan Shearer on MOTD if the fans don't want Sam then he won't be there next season. he doesn't know our owners then.

Just had a read of sky's Evolution of a Rivalry about the derby. enjoyed reading about the teams especially top transfers over the years names like Bakayoko, Preki, Oster and Nyarko. Looking forward to this derby think Silva will have them fired up and will definitely play to win unlike recent games think we will be unchanged as well but fingers crossed for 3 points.


1.) 28 Nov 2018 13:13:22
Big ask that mate 3 points, but hey with you all the way would be happy with a draw though hmmmm.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 15:07:17
Hey GB would be happy for a 100% performance from the team even if we get a draw it means we are still moving in the right direction.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 17:53:10
At least there are not loads of players in team with crap record against them. Only Coleman in starting 11 has poor record. The rest won’t have that history - like jags / jmac / Baines etc. Nothing to be frightened of. Silva also - chance to start as he means to go on.

4.) 28 Nov 2018 18:46:22
Paris will take a lot out of them think we have best chance to win at anfield in years.

5.) 28 Nov 2018 18:57:23
I would be well chuffed with that folks.

6.) 28 Nov 2018 19:59:18
Was thinking exactly the same Sobs! .

And how sweet would it be as well to end their unbeaten run and the last time we beat them at their ground I was 4 :0! . It’s surely got to happen sooner than later.

7.) 28 Nov 2018 21:34:01
would take a draw now if someone offered it TBH - would show a little progress in the right direction - keep our unbeaten streak going for a bit longer and if 0-0 clean sheet even better. I just have a bad feeling when ever we play that lot - no luck, poor decisions etc always against us.



14 Nov 2018 23:15:00
Had a nice little chat with Marcel today before he flew out of T3, really nice guy has lots of good things to day about the club and fans. Didn't pry into were he was going and why but he was a really down to earth and I thanked him for turning the club around to which he replied I'm only just getting started.


1.) 15 Nov 2018 10:18:26
Nice one mate I think the guy is a true gent.

2.) 15 Nov 2018 11:50:08
I think the appointment of Marcel Brands was absolutely crucial to the future development of the club. He will bring experience and more importantly stability if and when Silva moves on. Steve Walsh was not a D of F, he was a very good scout but was not necessarily equipped with all the other skills needed in this key role. I for one am really looking forward to future transfer windows! (can’t believe I’ve just said that!).



12 Sep 2018 09:30:27
Richarlson first start for Brazil and 2 goals yes it was against El Salvador but we can see why we paid the money we did can't wait till hoes on the pitch for us again.


1.) 12 Sep 2018 13:20:43
Good player mate.



16 Jun 2018 17:16:40
Just watching the Peru Vs Denmark game couple of decent Peru players one apparently Silva had at Watford. Hope all the blues are enjoying the world cup with that eye on what's happening with at our club.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 18:08:01
Carillo u mean one silva meant to have said when I get everton job I take u with me.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 18:16:22
Is that the one bretto he's having a very good game causing problems for Denmark, despite the penalty miss I'm liking watching Peru.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 22:59:07
Yeah he started well why for Watford why silva was there but when silva left went of boil. Also played for silva at sporting but then left for benfica.

4.) 17 Jun 2018 08:26:51
Bretto Carillo and Ricarlson both went off after Silva left. Can't quite put my finger on it but Carillo (spelling) didn't quite cut it for me watching him. For me he was running down blind alley's with his movement. Felt for the young lad who missed the penalty, I suppose if you are going to miss, then do it in style.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 09:45:16
Yeah I'm not biggest fan of him either think he average. Think we will go after lozono. But think mirallas and maybe bolaise/ look man will have to go first think look man will go want him to stay but just have feeling he go.



01 Jun 2018 07:22:39
Well here it is the 1st June we have our new manager, Brands officily starts work today (though I'm sure he's been working behind the scenes since we got him) and the new board members are in place.
I'm very happy with all the appointments if they all gel we have a fantastic future ahead, of course it will take time and that's what we need to give them we need to get behind everyone now and support our great club back to were it belongs.
We need to let Brands and Silva build a team we can be proud of ( including Seamus as Captain) there may be a few blips on the way but we need to forget any negativity now, we've got we wanted in Sam going and I'm sure they have both looked at the squad and have decided already were to strengthen and who we can release.
I'm looking forward to the summer now and can't wait for the first game back at Goodison (Valencia I think) so we can show our support and let them know we are behind them on what they are trying to achieve.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 09:56:28
Get in Lee. I can't wait for all this to start. I'm excited with the new structure and to see how they do.

You're bang on now with getting behind this team. No matter what happened this summer supporting whoever is there was so important. We have to shed this old skin and come back this new season with optimism and hope. Every team that succeeds is when you are all pulling together.

As long as we see an improvement in the footballing side and progress being made then we should back this manager, staff and players.


2.) 01 Jun 2018 12:38:19
Two excellent posts. I’m proper up for the season ahead.

COYB. Better not Bitter.

3.) 01 Jun 2018 15:06:19
I feel like a teenager again. I'm sick of being in misery like the last 7 months and while we have some good news I'm going to bloody enjoy it.

What's the use in continuing to moan when if we allow ourselves to dream little we might just get a little happiness.

If it doesn't work out we can always go back to being miserable bastards again.

COYB. Better not bitter (Get that hash tagged mate)

4.) 01 Jun 2018 18:44:53
I'm still devastated about SA not being here next season, oh wait that was just a nightmare, looking forward to next season and a fitter better more attack minded Everton.

Welcome Toldyaso good to hear Lookman may give us a go I think there is a talent in there.

Marcel has worked wonders GB bet he's been working 24/ 7 since he arrived, think he has been our most important signing then comes Marco with all the backroom staff who in my opinion have improved the structure, fitness and morale of the team.

Got to say GB haven't been unimpressed with him this season think him and Holgate could have found a good partnership together, got to be Zouma now against Rotherham and Bernard for Richarlson.
Lot of stick from fans towards Seamus after yesterday's game we are very fickle after everything has been through and the performances he's had would much rather see him have the armband and see Digne on for Baines.

£25 mill and hopefully some clauses can't argue with that can we.

He got a lot of game time pre season but don't think he really took his chance and with I'd say Walcott cementing his place at Right wing, Tosun up front and Bernard to come in we don't really need him.

Just watched the goals again and I think we have the makings of a world class player in Richarlson still need an out and out striker but he'll do for now.

Think we are all happy Evertonians at the moment GB and as you say a few tweaks and we will hopefully have a bright future with Marco, Marcel and the team they are trying to build.

Good that all the guys could get a run out Mina, Gomes and Jimmy Mac going to be strength in depth soon quite a headache for Silva to have but a positive one.
