The Mayor of Liverpool said he will be writing to the Premier League and Football Association over the deal, glad it's not only me that think something not right here?

1.) 06 Jan 2018 21:37:17
30mil to buy last season of contract in summer half for half now seems fair price atm even if we have been screwed by all.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 21:47:33
While what Chelsea "may" have done doesn't seem fair to us they've done what's best for Chelsea and nothing illegal.

3.) 06 jan 2018 22:41:47
brian1878: you’re right.

Burnley are interested in signing Everton winger Aaron Lennon.

1.) 04 Jan 2018 18:07:17
Is he ready for that step-up :)

2.) 04 Jan 2018 18:34:06
Can we have Ben Mee in exchange?

3.) 04 Jan 2018 23:21:05
My mate who is a Burnley fan says we should have gone for Mee not Keane 🤦🏻‍♂️.



13 Oct 2017 17:47:32
Bramley Moore Dock the proposed site for Everton's new stadium, proposed so not decided?
Ian Pollitt is saying "This site is the site we're talking to Everton FC about at the moment, and all I can really say at the moment is obviously discussions are ongoing" so still nothing decided? WTF, what happened to "you will have it in 3 years" said no way and got slated here, board dragging there feet again.

1.) 13 Oct 2017 19:07:01
I hear u stig but for me the team is paramount and stadium second. as a package the club needs to be attractive. so I get the importance of the stadium but right now it seems far less important to me.

2.) 14 Oct 2017 09:11:26
Yes Stig you are right the team is not the only problem, Ken&co must go.

3.) 15 Oct 2017 15:51:17
Think we have to separate the on-field and infrastructure agendas and deal with both in their own merits.
Right manager, right players, right coaching and player development is vital as we need to be challenging in top flight football and have a presence in European competitions.
Financing and building a stadium (and all that goes with it) is equally as important and the two, whilst complimentary, should be treated on their own merits.
Man City wouldn't be where they are now if they were still playing at Maine Rd.
Arsenal's off field planning has put them as one of the strongest bases for future progression in World football. (take out of that Wenger is past his sell by date)
Any decisions bases on the stadium has to look 5 to 10 years in the future.
On field crisis has to be dealt with now and that is a different mind set than running the business side of the club.

4.) 15 Oct 2017 16:41:00
Young guns, Man City were handed the golden goose in respect to their ground. It was Manchester City Council who built it and it's official name is "The Stadium of Manchester". Man City were given naming rights on a leased basis hence the name Etihad. They only lease the ground and pay around £3m per year to do so. I'm sure you will agree that's not a bad deal for any premiership side.

5.) 15 Oct 2017 17:05:35
grumpy. is that not similar to the ground deal we are hoping to get.

6.) 15 Oct 2017 18:06:21
No Dixie,

City did not pay anything for building it and own none of it. Even when they raised the seating capacity the council paid for most of it.
My understanding of our deal is that we will be paying a significant amount and will actually own part/ all of the stadium with Liverpool city council contributing to the cost, we will own the naming rights and any events held there will have to go through EFC and not the council, the reverse is true of Man City.

7.) 15 Oct 2017 18:24:00
You're right Grumpy, but it is still a 21st Century stadium fit for purpose and a draw for investment . Goodison Park isn't.
We need a new stadium, I appreciate deals have to be right and I think Moshiri is from a financing and business background that makes that the right deal.
If Liverpool Council pays any part as long as it doesn't effect the football side of the club then bring it on.
Gone are the days of clubs solely owning their home.
Our goal should be to have the best British stadium, eclipsing The Emirates, The Etihad, the new Spurs ground and even Wembley.

{Ed002's Note - I think you perhaps misunderstand what is happening with the stadium and the proposal.}

8.) 15 Oct 2017 19:19:09
I probably do Ed002,

It's an age thing, these days the things I don't misunderstand are often things I have made up.



03 Apr 2016 10:17:34
Just been reading about Man Who after Ross Barkley, if its true I would be more upset about Ross going than Lukaku, who we all love but let's be honest, Luk has only used us to get first team football and move on, Barkley gets a lot of stick like Cleverley, don't know why? I do think we could lose a lot of our stars, think RM has lost the Dressing room.

1.) 03 Apr 2016 11:08:52
If we can't pay the same wages as manutd we will always loose are best players and win nothing ever again that's the way football has gone apart from Leicester this season which is just a blip it will be the same teams every year that win trophies think it's time to leave the football behind for me can't be arsed any more new chairman or not it won't change anything.

2.) 03 Apr 2016 11:34:21
Take it with a pinch of salt it's that time of year where the press try to unsettle all our players it's like they have an agenda the difference this year is they can't use our finances as an a excuse it shows they don't like us never have never will.
I'm sure they did it in 09 before we played utd in the semi final and Chelsea in the final anything to make us lose. I ignore the lot of them to the point where I don't read the papers and will not click on any link that says our players are leaving.

3.) 03 Apr 2016 11:38:41
Hmm let me think. Last year no money didn't sell Stones. This year loads of money and still don't have to sell. In fact we should be putting bids in for their players. Rachford and DeGea would do nicely to start with.

4.) 03 Apr 2016 11:39:01
I don't know if RM has lost dressing room or not stig. he's lost the fans, or at least the majority of us. With respect to Ross, he too has a long contract with us. I'm sure 4yrs left, but unlike mirrallas, lukaku and stones he's not made single statement regarding a move. I cannot see Everton selling all of the starlets tbh. I think worse case is Rom and stones, but I don't see anything else. Ross does get too much flack in my opinion (due to his lackb of consistency) . which is why I can't see Man U going for him. they need someone with immediate and consistent impact imo and that's not Ross. yet. At the same time I think all fans who go the game need to give the lad a break. he is still maturing and getting better each season. and will do next season. A lot don't like the fact he does not challenge or defend enough but the lad almost had no career after some terrible injuries. that has to play on his mind. However, his ability to drive past players, pick a pass and score a few are attributes we will need next season if we lose rom. I wouldn't part with Ross at any cost this season. and I don't think we will. especially as rom is most likely going.

5.) 03 Apr 2016 11:45:16
Stig relax I don't think we will sell Barkley especially if stones and Rom leave club wouldn't allow it plus last summer Barkley was supposed to be of to man city that didn't happen don't believe what u read in the daily star not saying utd won't be interested in him they where interested in Baines but they didn't get him as for Bobby looseing the dressing room u only hear this when team under performing I am not a Bobby fan and I want him out of everton but it's time the players take a look at themselves and actually start performing to there potential stig u should go to Sunday mirror website and read the article on Rom it's a good read.

6.) 03 Apr 2016 11:57:28
Fully agree Skylark I been criticised for not renewing my season ticket but if all waited it might cost more but we may have seen some action.
As for the money it is obscene beyond words and going to get a lot worse .
players getting £100 of thousands a week its sick when surgeons save lives.
Brown shoes out and I will be back.

7.) 03 Apr 2016 12:18:40
Thanks for the replays mates, hope you are all right, and let's get a big win today, the players and us need it, after last week.

8.) 03 Apr 2016 13:51:06
Just read that article duke and imo its spot on. As I said the other day agents are only happy when players move its just pure greed mate.

9.) 03 Apr 2016 19:13:25
I would say with confidence Ross will stay for sure. ( He has the same handcuff we have as fans on us) The dressing room was lost a couple of months back. I fear giving responsibility of mega bucks to a board that won't sack Martinez, who has stumped the progression of its largest assets. Purely because he's that ex girlfriend you woost out of dumping because of her feelings even when your dick had already left the he relationship. I'm not sure we have the minerals to be keeping top talent anyway . Never thought we would buy a 28 mill striker or allow the only manager in our history to have that luxury destroy us. Wigan won an fa cup so ****ing what the fa cup is a blue peter badge nothing more. I don't blame Roberto one bit if I was getting cheques for hatchet work I'd be cashing them . I watched Niasse today for the five means he was allowed. His confidence is completely destroyed his manager should not have talked to the press about him until he was allowed a start. Hypocritical really considering the same gent has shown no progression himself he moon walks for **** sake. I stiff love this fat ugly Minger of a club but I'm dying a bit inside still romancing her.

Marouane Fellaini has agreed a deal to join Besiktas at the end of the season. The Belgium international, 30, is out of contract at the end of the campaign and could leave on a free transfer,

would you have had him back? gives it 100%.

1.) 16 Feb 2018 16:36:43
For free, yes I would.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 17:12:21
He is good offensively at set pieces. He is good defensively and at set pieces. He is good with 10 mins to go when you are a goal down. Throw him forward as an annoyance to the opposition when you need to lump it forwards. Yes I would have him back.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 17:40:40
And where do we play him? Instead of siggy? Rooney? Gana? He would be a super sub at best. He is going to beshiktaa for game time, why would he come to us to sit on the bench.

4.) 16 Feb 2018 18:14:31
Good answer Smit mate.

5.) 16 Feb 2018 18:40:05
I'm not sure I'd have him back. However I wish him the best of luck. I've heard nothing but nice stories about him outside of football and he's a very humble and down to earth guy.

6.) 16 Feb 2018 19:49:08
To answer Smit666's question about where I would play him. he could play instaed of Gana or Schneids for sure. All our midfielders will not remain uninjured all season for sure. So he could play in an offensive or defensive role at times. like I said in my original post. and yes he might have to be sub at times. But he would be great competition for places and give the squad something it currently lacks. Sigs corners and free kicks would certainly have someone to aim at which we don't currently seem to be doing. If we were hanging on to a 1 nil lead with 10 mins to go, he is great to put in alongside Gana. but to answer the original question again. yes I would have him back. Sorry if you don't agree. But I would.

7.) 16 Feb 2018 21:41:55
Like you say Degsy put him on with 10 minutes to go. Sub at best. He's not a defensive mid so why would he take Gana or schneids place? Or are you thinking of not playing a defensive mid? He plays further forward so would take siggy or Davies place which he might have done 5 years ago but not now.

{Ed025's Note - maybe instead of building a new ground we should build a home for over the hill players, we could ask all the teams who have players who are past their sell by date to sign for us, we could get john o,shey and wes brown as our captain and vice captain and fellaini as our player manager, leave all them pesky kids in the U23 squad and go with experience...just a thought..

8.) 16 Feb 2018 22:41:55
With the money they earn Ed they can build there own bloomin Home for the over hill players, and those damn pesky kids can take out the bin bags. sigh . bliss.

9.) 17 Feb 2018 07:14:48
And get all the old players on the coaching staff to be the mentors for the Everton Last Payday XI what dya reckon Ed025?

{Ed025's Note - sounds good to me gray..

10.) 17 Feb 2018 11:35:31
To answer another constructive question. Fellaini can play defensive mid very well. He did it for years with us. Just in front of the back 4. He does it with Utd and Belgium at times. Usually when they are hanging on to a lead with a few mins to go. He also has a few goals in him. 36 premier league goals so far. 16 international goals so far. But it is about opinions so there ya go. that's mine. Thumbs down time!

11.) 17 Feb 2018 20:57:56
Degsy, he is not an out and out defensive mid, he has always been a box to box midfielder, he has never been disciplined enough to be a defensive mid.

It would just fallin with the recruitment mentality this season, ooh he used to be good so let's buy him, where does he play? Err. I don't know but, he'll fit in somewhere.
If he wanted to sit on the bench and come on as sub surely he would be better staying at united than coming to us. He would just be another waste of money.



14 Feb 2018 11:44:24
Anyone read Kieron Dyer book? interesting about Duncan Ferguson bulling Alessandro Pistone, he has always and still is a hot head (bully) he could be OUR problem, great player BUT.

1.) 14 Feb 2018 13:01:43
I just glad there is one person with standards and a 'only the best will do' attitude at the club.

Feeling a little more reassured.

2.) 14 Feb 2018 15:02:37
Big Dunc should stand on the half way line staring at Klopp when we warm up before the Derby and see how long Klopp can hold his nerve. He’ll want a witness protection program after that.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 15:18:58
He would only do what he always does and whinge to the referee. So far this season, they hav had a few penalty decisions for them and a few against. but typical of "top 4" managers. they are very quick and loud when a decision goes agaist them. but silent when it goes for them! Morinho and Wenger are the worst, but even Wenger seems to be quieting down now.

4.) 14 Feb 2018 15:31:18
Don’t think Dunc goes near anyone over 6 foot does he?

Prefers the little guys with no nerve.

5.) 14 Feb 2018 18:07:33
Feeling nervous Swan? Sorry but set yourself up for that one😂.

6.) 14 Feb 2018 19:15:33
We need more players like Duncan Ferguson.
We have enough to moan about without slagging of our heroes on the word of Kieran Dyer.

7.) 14 Feb 2018 19:33:33
Could not agree more mate, Duncan Ferguson True Everton Legend.

8.) 14 Feb 2018 20:10:41
Yes he was a legend, but we are taking about bullying off the field? do you all like bully's? sad if you do.

9.) 14 Feb 2018 20:29:44
Was he brought to boot for it mate or is it just paper talk.

10.) 14 Feb 2018 20:55:46
M8 forget about the player, he is a hothead and has a bad temper, think most of us do but over the years you lean to control it, but some like to dish it out on weaker people, and no its not paper talk.

11.) 14 Feb 2018 21:04:18
I'd be more angry at the soft Italian getting paid millions who's not pulling his weight.

12.) 14 Feb 2018 21:06:05
ok stig I don't agree to bullying no place for it mte.

13.) 14 Feb 2018 21:19:57
Totally stig absolutely detest bullies.

No proof as far as I know with big Dunc.

Tell me one thing. Who in the current set up gives as much determination, grit and never say die attitude as much as big Dunc when he was a player?

The man MAY come across as a bully sometimes. Its speculation but I would guess if it is true that its because he cares so much. Probably more than anyone else does and his anger comes across that way.

That's if the speculation is true in the first place. Don't think anyone would question Dunc's commitment to the club.

14.) 14 Feb 2018 21:32:26
That’s what I was trying to say mate.

15.) 14 Feb 2018 22:06:23
Remember Carragher holding Big Duncs arm and the look saying 'Good God what am I doing' as Dunc stands over yet another RS casualty.

16.) 14 Feb 2018 22:24:43
Todays PC attitude and the group it attracts are what is destroying this Country. Tolerance has disappeared because people are scared out of their nether garments to say what they think. I accept that bullying is and always has been an appalling cowardly attitude to take toward another, but we have to be careful what we perceive as bullying. My friends, Wife (also my friend (I think) ) and kids consider me an extremely disturbed individual that when he worked was intolerant toward others. I pointed out that their perception of intolerance is flawed, yes I was impatient and yes at times I was angry but at the same time received numerous 'good jobs' and 'would you come back's' because of my ability to delegate and trust. Those two actions can only be done if your workforce is on a par with your thinking.

17.) 14 Feb 2018 22:58:11
I don't think there is any suggestion of bullying at all. If you don't like him don't. If you do, do. Climb down high horses.

18.) 14 Feb 2018 23:28:32
Bullying is deplorable, we all seem to agree, but there wasn't enough information to come to such a conclusion. Pistone told him to eff off, DF has fronted him and told him never to say that to him again. Is that really bullying? Is it DF's fault that Pistone cried due to his aggressive words? Now, if he had taken his dinner money on a daily basis or he was hitting him every day then that is a bully. It's a non-story for me, just something that helps fill out the book of Dyer as well as all taking place at the Toon.

{Ed0333's Note - And also Dyer is one of the biggest cry baby’s of all time at least Pistons had the balls to swear at DF.

19.) 15 Feb 2018 07:33:16
Isn't this the same Kieron Dyer who had a scrap with his own team mate on the pitch? Would take anything he says with a pinch of salt.

20.) 15 Feb 2018 08:04:24
its not bullying to confront someone who told you to fcuk off is it? if he didn't confront him and just took it would that not make pistone a bully then? bullying is horrible but some people are too quick to label anything remotley aggressive as bullying, my view of this is dunc stuck up for himself.

21.) 15 Feb 2018 10:04:57
Bullying in any form (mental or physical) is wrong.

That is just my opinion not me forcing any of you into thinking that bullying is wrong.

Not saying anything else on the matter.



14 Feb 2018 10:18:06
Everton off to unnamed Middle East location, (its Dubai)

Do you think they work? wtf,

if it was somewhere in the middle of nowhere I would say yes, but Dubai, one big party.

1.) 14 Feb 2018 10:31:28
Ed mate, great win the weekend, but am I the only one who thinks we where lucky? Benteke could and should have had a hat trick on his own?

{Ed025's Note - i agree to a certain extent stig, but i was pleased with the energy and attacking intent that we showed, but i dont want just see this at home..

2.) 14 Feb 2018 18:37:18
I think we were lucky. No Saha and the ball bounced for us when it counted. That doesn't matter though. Any team on an iffy run will need a bit of luck to lift spirits. We've had that rub of the green. It's how the upturn in spirits and fortunes is nurtured that counts now.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 19:54:55
Benteke hasn't even scored 3 this season. 😂.

4.) 14 Feb 2018 20:43:43
We will probably buy him then Smit.



13 Feb 2018 10:54:01
Sam Allardyce will only give £27m Turkish striker Cenk Tosun more game time when the club have secured their Premier League safety? Why did you get him idiot, SAM.

1.) 13 Feb 2018 12:24:00
To be far Stig, as frustrating as it is, there’s no telling if a foreign based player can hit the ground running. By all accounts Tosun is great in training but struggling with the weather change. There’s no doubting the talent, it’s just a matter of time I hope.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 12:26:05
It does make you think, why didn't we go for him in the summer and save some money.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 13:22:31
So we pay 27m for a player who can’t play in the winter? You would have thought this might have come up in conversation during the transfer discussions.
Walsh- we want to sign you, and are really looking forward to see what you can do from January on.
Tosun- winter? Oh no no no, no no no.
Walsh- ok we will buy you anyway, I’m sure you will get used to it.
Tosun- no no no, no no no.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 13:31:32
If this has in fact been said (? ) , then no matter how quickly the guy now adapts, he won't play until a predetermined time? Ridiculous.
