I know not as glamorous as VVD or as long term as someone like Michael Keane, but I think we should go in to Jose Fonte now he's put in a transfer request.

Improvement on jags, class at euros, natural leader and rk knows him very well. In fact he was one of best defenders in league under rk.

Doesn't solve issue of ageing team, but would massively improve back line for very little outlay.

Ed, do you know if there is any interest in him? I know utd were linked in summer?


{Ed002's Note - There is interest but not from Everton. If that changes I will let you know.}

1.) 05 Jan 2017 16:38:04
Thanks for the quick response ed. I hope it does change!

{Ed002's Note - Everton are looking to the future with Adam Webster supplemented by interest in the likes of either Michael Keane or else Ben Gibson for the summer - that is the sensible approach and the one I think you should get behind ST.}

2.) 05 Jan 2017 16:58:58
I am fully behind that approach - and Keane or Gibson would be great signings. I've never seen Webster play so can't comment on him

But I do think that Fonte would improve our defensive options particularly for the next 18 months and do so potentially fairly cheaply with jags seemingly going downhill fast.

But it's good to hear that we are working to get good options for the future as well!

3.) 05 Jan 2017 17:01:51
Can we have both in the summer please ed👌.

4.) 05 Jan 2017 17:28:55
Michael Keane seems a real talent. Thanks as always, ed.



08 Dec 2016 07:54:41
Quotes coming out of Holland saying that Riechedly Bazoer Is likely to leave Ajax in Jan. Very highly rated 20 year old, cm in the mould of Vieira. Was chased by all the big clubs last year but has gone off the boil a bit this year. Already a Dutch international with 60+ appearances for Ajax.

Could be another option instead of schneiderlein and would be an upgrade on McCarthy. can any of the eds shine a light on his situation?


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}



31 Aug 2016 22:56:33
Disappointed we didn't get targets today, but let's get realistic - it's been a good window and we're definitely stronger now than end of last season. Both on and off the pitch.

Sissoko always seemed like a 3rd or 4th choice. And surely you can't blame him for choosing champions league football. Some of the anger towards him is pathetic, he owes us nothing and owes us no loyalty. If our top transfer target became available today we would have ditched him and moved onto someone else.

And anyone thought that we didn't close the deals because they weren't right for the club? Every player has their value, and if we weren't willing to pay over the odds then that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

We're only disappointed because the media circus around deadline day whips fans into a frenzy.

Let's stay positive. 7 points from 9, stronger on and off the pitch. Things are still looking up. COYB.


1.) 31 Aug 2016 23:10:12
Good post that ST.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 23:11:16
If we had any less than 6 it would be a disaster. You can't judge anything after 3 games.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 23:12:50
Spot on ST we are in a better shape now than we have been for a very long time.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 23:36:05
Good post st and I'm sure we will get 3 points in our next game RK has us playing as a team all we need now is the news of the new stadium and the feel good factor will be back after today's events.

5.) 31 Aug 2016 23:42:17
Bang on Southern_Toffee.

All these absolute belters going on about how we are a laughing stock cause we didn't go an spaff 100m on deadline day.

I would rather keep hold of the money and spend it when we know or have a clear inclination that the player will suit the club and take us to the next level.

We have had a solid window. Stekky has started very well, and he is better than what we had last season.

Williams is a leader, rarely misses games, voice on the pitch and makes us much more solid.

Gueye works his bollocks off and is a steal at 7 million when you look at the likes of Ryan Mason going to Hull for 13 million.

Bolasie gives us something different and makes us a threat on the counter, just like Koeman wants us to play.

Every Newcastle fan i know couldn't wait to see the back of Sissoko, saying he never turned up, only when it suited. Do we really want a player like that, or do we want someone who will play for the shirt and the fans.

Seriously with some fans you can never win, we have made 4 solid signings and then by all accounts another young gem.

Valencia might not be the striker we were looking for, but he is certainly a better option than Niasse or Kone. Pace to burn and can find the net, given the service.

Great start to the season and i think we have a solid side. We have only just come into money, as soon as our league position improves from bottom half of the table, players will be more attracted to us.

Rome wasnt built in a day.


6.) 31 Aug 2016 23:46:46
And when you look at the team Koeman is already having an effect and getting more from the side! Mirallas looks a different player!

7.) 31 Aug 2016 23:54:55
We have drawn 1-1 with Spurs - decent. Scraped wins against an out of sorts Stoke and poor West Brom. And smashed the mighty Yeovil I am over the moon.

8.) 01 Sep 2016 00:44:33
Even though I like our new signings and your post. I cannot help to be cynical. It's seem to me that we have to sell to buy. Also think that the Sissoko deal was smoke screen for us to believed we were in for a big player. When we only getting a loan deal. I just hope that th ground at the dock get the go ahead.

9.) 01 Sep 2016 00:49:06
I think we should be due some commission from Newcastle for getting Spurs to stump up £30m!

10.) 01 Sep 2016 01:47:33
If anyone thinks we have come out of this window well they are deluding themselves.

11.) 01 Sep 2016 03:09:04
Are you kidding? We have come out well.
We have an awesome manager who can change a game and is already improving the players
A DOF to start pushing the club forward
A premier league hardened CB probably one of the best out there
A bargain Midfielder in Gueye who has already been immense this season
A Bolassie who will torment defences all season
We kept Lukaku
And we have some exciting talents in the fringes of the first team!
We have a major shareholder who is wanting to fund new players and a new stadium
Still have a chairman who loves the club, and is at heart an Everton fan
And we haven't forked out on any panic buys!
This was always going to be a tough window and I feel we has come out stronger and stable.

12.) 01 Sep 2016 06:35:15
And we got almost £50m for Stones! (Who wanted to go)

13.) 01 Sep 2016 07:32:14
Agree with all the above ST and I'm sure once the disappointment fades (as usual) we will all crack on with it
Despite a billionaire investor
Despite the highest TV money ever

We have hardly spent a penny. Don't care what you say but THAT is unacceptable.

I get some of it is sound bites from ITK's etc. But Moshiri himself said was anxious to add to squad ( after Bolasie) .

For once we seemed to have money to spend. And yet again it didn't happen.

So crack on with your optimism but I and many more saw this as a real chance to improve and to push ourselves towards top 6. Don't see that happening now, least not this season.

Hopefully by January SW has unearthed a few gems.
Hopefully in near future we will hear about plans for stadium.

But being an Evertonians is like being a crap boxer who keeps having to get up off the canvas.

14.) 01 Sep 2016 07:37:28
Well said southern toffee agree with everything u said this summer had been a summer of change for Everton and a change for the better we have a world class manager a new director of football who arrived late in summer and a owner who has big ambitions for are club with stadium and returning are glory days so the deadline day didn't turn out as we hoped but the work in the transfer market before deadline day has made r squad stronger steklenberg has been class in goal adrissa looks the buy of the season Williams is a vocal leader we have been needing for ages and s one of the best defenders in the league and bolasie gives us another dimension going forward with his pace and power and hopefully enner Valencia can repeat his form from his first season at the hammers where he was excellent what ever happens he still better than kone and niasse know we have some serious pace in the attacking and going to be a big threat on the counter attack in away games. Don't forget this gives Walsh some proper time to addentify his targets for January and summer windows and have deals already set up.

{Ed025's Note - well said duke..

15.) 01 Sep 2016 07:52:33
I'm OK with not spending £30 million on Sissoko. Looked good in Euros, poor in the prem. Just hope big Ash kicks him all over the place in the new year. What does annoy me is how we were allowed to be strong along by Napoli and Porto.

16.) 01 Sep 2016 08:08:47
I like the way everyone trying to be happy but let's get it right this was a shocking transfer window considering we were meant for a busy summer an top signing, we only strengthend with gueye, bolasie has 2 good game go missing for 6/ 7 game for 30mil we over payed, sketelburg is as good as Howard make some good save but always makes a mistake, we have no back up striker if lukaku get injured no back up right bk no top class keeper an with jag or William get injured were bk to square 1, the only good thing about this window is we got a top top manager in Koeman, Koeman has to be gutted.

17.) 01 Sep 2016 09:05:06
No evidence anything has changed. We had to sell to buy and didn't spend any more than we got in. I want to believe it'll be different but don't see any evidence that it is. That's why I'm confused as to why so many fans have blind faith that money will be available and we will have an impact in the transfer market.

18.) 01 Sep 2016 09:33:28
ROBBO05 who did we sell to pay for Sissoko i'm pretty sure we would have actually paid for him but he decided to go elsewhere you statement is flawed.

19.) 01 Sep 2016 09:39:03
Rob I believe there is money there just don't know how much could be 100mil could not be who knows Everton certainly never came out with how much we have to spend plus rob did u expect us to go do a spurs from a few years ago when they sold bale and go buy for sake of buying which didn't turn out to well for them I know there's a lot of frustration but we need to be patient and let Walsh do his job in the upcoming transfer windows and line up some transfers.

20.) 01 Sep 2016 10:01:41
spot on duke. It appears most people who are upset are upset because we didn't spend every penny available to us - regardless of who we spent it on.

I for one would prefer to keep the money to spend on the right players in January or next summer, rather than spend it for the sake of it.

Also - after the Emirates move we saw Arsenal spend drop. We've seen something similar this season with Spurs, Chelsea and to an extent Liverpool (all with new stadiums/ stands to fund) . It could be that money is being put aside for a stadium. We don't know what is going on behind the scenes.

And if that is the case then I would prefer a Bramley Moore Stadium over Moussa Sissoko any day of the week.

21.) 01 Sep 2016 10:33:21
Am up set that the team wasn't strengthend an that we didn't get good player to cover area what are needed.

22.) 01 Sep 2016 12:30:54
But we have a good team already! I am glad we didn't blow £100m just because we have it!
Koeman said there is time needed to build and money doesn't make you an overnight success. Valencia on loan makes sense to me, little outlay for a decent backup who if needs be we cut next summer when we are in a better position!
I am sure Moshiri will have learnt from this as well and feel our pain and Walsh hasn't had much time to work yet so let's get behind the team and be positive!

23.) 01 Sep 2016 12:47:52
Be interesting to know if we had drawn or lost all our games this season fans would be so understanding about not bringing in quality players. It's a marathon not a sprint. I just hope we don't get injuries to our top players and lukaku pulls his finger out.



30 Jun 2016 12:15:31
Ed - can you update us on whether we have any interest in Schneiderlin and Grosicki? I've been seeing it in a few places now so just wondering if there is any truth behind these rumours?


{Ed002's Note - (a) I am not aware of any approach for Schneiderlin. (b) Rennes say that two clubs including Everton have enquired after Grosicki and it is known that RK was interested when at Southampton.}



28 May 2016 08:14:39
Odds for Mancini have shortened significantly in the past few days, do you know if there's anything behind this eds?


{Ed025's Note - its just a guessing game at the moment ST, only the guys at the top know whats really going on and they are keeping their cards close to their chests mate..

1.) 28 May 2016 09:12:10
I'm actually in awe of FM's resolute way of doing things .

# He removed RM sooner rather than later
# He keeps tight lipped on his intentions
# He as we know is nobody's fool
# He doesn't cave in to the pressure that he must now feel on the 'manager question'.

2.) 28 May 2016 11:35:06
I think we'll start to see some movement next week as contracts in football tend to run from June to June.
Something I did hear midweek was that Peel Holdings bigwigs were in town and not very discreet about their enthusiasm on the docklands project and they expect rapid progress.

3.) 28 May 2016 15:17:48
Is just a basic move by betting companies for poeple to think that someone is a dead cert only for them to go back out in the odds and someone else to become short odds, nothing new they do this all the time.

4.) 28 May 2016 21:23:45
Absolutely spot on Mike. Just bookies drumming up custom to boost their profits by installing false favourites.

25 Jul 2017 16:07:36
Looking at Europa league squad, I think we are still short in a number of areas and could do with 4 more signings:

Left sided CB (especially with Mori out - maybe Martins Indi? )
Left back (capable of challenging Baines)
Target man (Giroud would be the dream)
Lacey ST/ WG.


1.) 25 Jul 2017 16:31:20
southern_toffee: Martina is a right-sided defender, so we probably could do with a left-sided centre-back - unless RK sticks with Besic.
It looks like Connolly is RK''s backup for Baines.
RK likes Calvert-Lewin, but we he needs time to develop as a Premier League target-man, so another recruit is likely.
A pacey forward would be nice, but RK has said he doesn't want a large squad and prefers to use the youngsters as backups - which surely means that Lookman and Dowell will get chances.

2.) 25 Jul 2017 17:02:31
Martins Indi - Porto defender who did well at Stoke last season, not Cuco Martina.

Connolly as back up for Baines is ok.

Dowell has been excellent in pre season but doesn't have the pace to stretch a team. Also with him, Klaasen, Sandro, Rooney and Mirallas all capable of playing 10 just off the main striker I really don't think we need Gylfi (disregarding debates about price and quality)

Would much rather spend the 50mil on Giroud and Dembele.

3.) 25 Jul 2017 17:19:21
I agree fellow Southern Toffee Martins Indi would be a great addition and I would keep an eye on the Ben Gibson situation.
For me LB should be fine for this season more likely to reviewed next season.
Giroud has to be the stand out striker, if the press are to be believed then perhaps some swap deal with Barkley might be on the cards.
If I was seeking a bit of pace I would also want some trickery perhaps a Ryad Mahrez, Ryad Boudebouz or Jonathan Vieira type?
This would be once Gylfi is signed and sealed
Just my thoughts but I don't flash the cash for the signings so will sit back and see what happens.

4.) 25 Jul 2017 17:51:54
Connolly is more like a left sided midfielder, even though his position is left back, if he is cover for Baines, I would be afraid, he got skinned a few times for England u20s and Everton U23s, hence not playing in the last few games for England U20s, Garbutt would have been a better option there, Connolly needs either another season on loan or left in the U23s but that's just my opinion and excellent analysis from a mate who follows Wigan Ath stating the same, Connolly played attacking down the left and played well but is no left back, switch the guy to left midfielder and you have a decent player there was his reply.



15 Jul 2017 11:59:27
Few posts recently about Swansea taking the piss with 50mil valuation. This misses the point completely.

Swansea haven't valued him at 50mil based on how much other clubs have sold other players for. They've valued him at 50mil based on what he's worth to them. And considering without him they'd be in the championship by now, I think it's fair to say he's worth that much to the club.

It's now up to us, or Leicester, or anyone else interested, to decide if he's worth that much to us.


1.) 15 Jul 2017 12:25:31
Agreed at, and I appreciate there is a media circus, but using words like bullied etc. not cricket if unfounded. that aside the fee is based on what they value him at. and any buyer will have to meet their valuation else not buy him.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 12:35:40
Spot on mate, a lot of people don't grasp a player's worth to their club.

3.) 15 Jul 2017 13:24:30
Absolutely spot on, price is irrelevant in today's market and I've noticed why all of a sudden more and more football fans are saying other clubs paying too much when this has been going on for years, I can't believe for the first time as an Everton fan my mates are saying we're paying over the odds or buying too many players. This is just a normal reaction, its because we're a threat to the usual clubs, and it shows, few years ago it was top 4, then when Man Utd weren't getting in it, then it was top 6 now all of a sudden Everton have power there saying it's top 7,
Look how much money they all through at it and none of them are any better than 5 or 6 years ago. My point is all these clubs have had millions of pounds of players that wer flops, I think we're spending wisely and looking at our squad are we really that far behind those other clubs.

4.) 15 Jul 2017 14:05:13
Totally agree Truebluemetz imho we are spending very wisely so far. Pickford, Klaassen, Sandro, and Keane all under 23 with big futures. Packing the U23's with quality also shows that a long term strategy is in place rather than trying to win the league immediately by throwing big money at players who are already developed or in later (prime) years of their careers.

5.) 15 Jul 2017 14:15:33
Wish every1 would stop going on about the money for siggurdson. If we get him we get him, if we don't we dont. let's just leave that to our club, they know a lot more than all of us put together. let's just do what fans are supposed to do an get behind whatever decision they make an support our beloved club. The next few years are going to be full of ups an downs but its promising to be building up to somethin special. I hope we could maybe win a trophy or 2 before we leave goodison an setlle in to our new home on the banks of the royal blue mersey. The signings made so far are exciting an basically give a new spine to the team an hopefully another couple should follow. What a time to be an evertonian an long may it continue.

6.) 15 Jul 2017 16:55:03
Your last 2 sentences are basically my post above. Obviously agree Bluetooth. Exciting times ahead.



04 Jul 2017 13:07:44
Everyone seems to be very excited about the possibility of Sigurdsson. I think he's a wonderful player.

But I just can't see where he would fit into the team. Interested in others thoughts?

If we have a starting midfield 3 of Gana/ Morgan/ Klaasen with Ross and Davies as back up.

And then we have a front 3 of Yannick / Rom (or his replacement) / Sandro with Kev and Lookman as back up.

Where would Gylfi play? The only place I can see for him is front 3 instead of Bolasie/ Sandro. But surely we're not going to spend 40mil on him and stick him out wide out of position? That's 1 of the reasons it went so badly for him at Spurs.

I think attacking wise we need 1 more striker (2 if Rom goes) , and possibly 1 more winger (depending on Lookman's development) . Would prefer to spend money on players and play them in their best position, rather than just signing excellent players for the sake of it.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 13:37:32
Who knows what Bolasie will be like when he gets back which will be 2018. We need a strong squad now and sigurdson for me would be one of the 1st on the sheet.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 13:41:57
Have to agree with you s_t I can't see where Sigurdsson would play either. For me he is best in the middle behind the striker which is where I am presuming Klaassen will be playing. I think RK and SW nay have decided that Sigurdsson would be too expensive and too hard to get so signed Klaassen as an option. A replacement for Rom if he is going is what we really need.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 13:42:28
Smit - but where on the teamsheet? Are you saying he would replace Bolasie and be our winger?

4.) 04 Jul 2017 14:53:51
Successful teams have strength in depth and that's what we need, Ross is not in Koemans plans going forward so count him out. A system which has Schneiderlein and Gana sitting in front of a back 3 of Holgate, Keane and Williams, then Baines and Coleman as wing backs with Klassen and Sigurdsson behind Sandro. You then have a strong defensive unit with creativity going forward.

5.) 04 Jul 2017 15:10:26
Koeman likes 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 with klassen, schneids and gana plus Baines and Coleman or Davies as wing backs. Sandro and siggurdson up front.
We should have plenty of goals with Sandro and siggurdson plus klassen linking up and the added defence of gana.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 15:15:47
That's a strong team bluegray and yes gylfi would fit perfectly in that formation. If that's the way RK wants to go then sign him up!

I'd worry about the lack of width but leave that up to RK.

Completely agree with your point on depth, but surely we wouldn't be buying sigurdsson for depth especially when we have just bought klaasen in his position.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 22:24:37
Coleman and Baines give you width as well as Sandro working the flanks something he done very well at Malaga and something we haven't seen from our striker since he has been here.
I like the look of that system myself and its flexible in a sense that you can revert to a flat back 4 if needs be and the holding players are also good footballers and not just yard dogs like McCarthy.



30 Jun 2017 21:02:48
Ed - with Arsenal reportedly close to signing Lacazette, do you think there would be interest in a deal from either side in Giroud joining us?


{Ed025's Note - its possible i would think ST..

1.) 01 Jul 2017 09:52:59
Out of all the strikers linked I think he could be the final bit in the jigsaw as long as sandro signs, great hold up play but not the quickest but a handful in the air as we have found out in the past, with klaasson just behind looks very good if klaasson can adapt to the premiership, just hope Barkley stays just to give us more options.

06 Jun 2017 16:16:44
So it looks like Rom has almost certainly gone. I for one think he has been excellent for us and we have been excellent for him and I don't bare any grudge against him. Time​ to move on to our next CF.

Eddy posted a great list of possible strikers to replace him a really days ago. So who do people want as our new CF?

Personally I'd be delighted with 2 of
Rashford loan
Dembele (Celtic - but I think unrealistic)

I also like the look of Patrick Roberts as a left footed winger that we need.

What are other thoughts?


1.) 06 Jun 2017 17:13:14
Batshayui and ihenacho I'd like but West Ham look favourites for inenacho! They seem keen on this William Jose fella never seen him play or even heard of him before ed002 told us. I would also try to get Nathan ake our zouma from. Chelsea I just hope we get the replacements in on the 1st of July to get decent time together before the europa and so we've got a striker in to play.

2.) 06 Jun 2017 17:18:19
I'm with you ST hold no grudge just get frustrated with the situation an the way that agent goes bout his ways.

Giroud for me would be a quality signing, maybe unrealistic though. I personally don't think we will end up with any of the above. Can't see rashford on loan happening. Ihenacho I can't see RK agreeing to a buy back option. Batsuayi could be a shot an he looked good when he played worth a risk I think. I'm not even sure the type of striker we need.

I would take Vardy for a season or 2. doesn't look like he's lost a yard an stays injury free. Good stop gap for me.

Everton the gear.

It was also in an interview with the arsenal website. Hardly going to say he wants off is he.

brian you're right, past achievements don't win upcoming games. But a winning mentality does. And instilling it in our young team what it means to win, and the sacrifices it takes will win us trophies in upcoming years.

Even if Rooney plays 5 games all season I think he's a worthwhile signing. A winning mentality is a major piece missing from our squad and even our new signings so far (even though they've all been quality! ) .

Spot on JMW

Rooney would be an excellent addition because he is a winner. He won't get into our starting 11 but will add a lot off the pitch. I think a 1 year loan suits all parties.

The only player in our squad to have won more than 2 major trophies is Funes Mori (Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, Argentine Championship) .

Beyond that we have 4 FA Cup winners (Joel, Jimmy Mac, Barry, Morgan) , 2 League Cup winners (Williams, Lennon) , 1 Premier League medal (Barry) and then a few trophies from Greece (Kev) , Belgium (Rom) and Holland (Stek)

Rooney has the around same number of winning medals from major trophies as the whole of our squad combined (5 Premier League, 1 FA Cup, 3 League Cup, 1 Champions League, 1 Europa League, 1 Club World Cup) .

As much as I want to break into top 6, we need to start winning trophies, and Rooney gives us a better chance of doing this.

21 Jun 2017 13:10:48
Completely agree tadpole. We need someone a bit more experienced and proven at this level at least in the squad.

Also think we should be having 3 strikers. Assuming 1 is Sandro, the other 2 should be 1 youth and 1 experience, offering different skillset (i. e. 1 pacey and 1 who can hold it up) .

Ideal would be Dembele and Giroud alongside Sandro!

I am fully behind that approach - and Keane or Gibson would be great signings. I've never seen Webster play so can't comment on him

But I do think that Fonte would improve our defensive options particularly for the next 18 months and do so potentially fairly cheaply with jags seemingly going downhill fast.

But it's good to hear that we are working to get good options for the future as well!

Completely agree. I have no problem with us spending 50mil. I just think if we are going to spend that much then there are better players we can get.

Based on absolutely nothing. I can see him go to Newcastle in the final week of the window for 30mil.

And I think he'd do really well there.

I think this could be the biggest sign that he is on his way out.

They say he's injured, but so is Bolasie and he's travelled.

Bluey - I don't see why you would give him a bad reception. He's a young striker who came in and has scored us a load of goals and believes that he is good enough to play regularly in the Champions League and so wants to play for a team that is in that position. He doesn't think he can do that at Everton so is looking to leave.

He clearly doesn't want to be here so because of that I think we should sell him and 75mil+ is a good deal all round.

We've been perfect for him in terms of the step from Chelsea bench to one of the most expensive in the world, and he's been great for us in terms of the goals he's scored. it's been a mutually beneficial relationship that is reaching a natural close.

So why boo him?

I hate this thing that has crept into the modern game of booing everyone just because they used to play for us.

If Rom does go then Dembele and Giroud would be perfect. If Rom stays then I suppose I will have to settle for 1 of them!
