I have a friend who let's just say use to have his company on the shirts of a famous Spanish team and has some involvement with the Dock
He has said the Welsh supporters of whom we have many will in future travel from a coach park in Wallasey by boat to our new ground


{Ed025's Note - i want to move to wales now trebor..

1.) 20 Jun 2017 14:14:45
Will it go via Cardiff Bay?

2.) 20 Jun 2017 14:32:49
Hope so browndawg. got to be better than travelling up by train!

3.) 20 Jun 2017 15:12:22
Sounds like the Last of the Mohicans !

4.) 20 Jun 2017 16:28:52
We don't want your kind around here, Ed! Haha.

{Ed025's Note - thanks hugo..the sons of glendower said the same thing mate.. :)

Welsh Rareboat.

{Ed025's Note - love it lance..

6.) 20 Jun 2017 17:46:20
I wonder how many Welsh fans we have who come to Goodison. Going to look right idiots arriving in a rowing boat.

7.) 20 Jun 2017 18:28:50
Even better when we block the dock moorings for our Viking neighbours travelling on their long ships for their match Days.

8.) 20 Jun 2017 19:26:12
Plenty of us travel up from South Wales every other week.

9.) 20 Jun 2017 20:30:04
Browndaug I not sure of how many of you great fans travel from South Wales but that's a true fan but I know when I use to walk along Priory Rd as a youngster I would read were all the coaches were from and lots from Rhyl and Llandudno and Ruthin Colwyn Bay.
On a other pleasant subject I spent a lovely afternoon with Billy Bingham and he was a true gent even giving me a signed copy of his book .
For the younger members on here he was a winger and Manager at Everton as well as manager of NI and got them to the 1/ 4 finals of the World Cup ( what an achievement) Also played in a cup final.
Lovely meeting you Billy.

10.) 20 Jun 2017 22:46:35
There's a South Wales Supporters Club. We take a bus full every game.

11.) 21 Jun 2017 09:56:34
Well done Browndawg as I say true BLUES
Let's hope you arrive in style on a ferry shortly
Perhaps the boats could play Z CARS as they arrived.

Adrian Heath banging on about it being very important we stick with Brown Shoes . Does he go the match or is he loosing it like RM!
Ivam getting so fustrated ivam going to explode.


1.) 09 Mar 2016 21:32:28
My personal number one would be Simeone from Ath Madrid. Top class imho. No English though. Chances are very small.

2.) 09 Mar 2016 22:54:16
Simone, mourinho n pellegrini I love the optimism but let's get serious they wouldn't consider us, new money but still the same money constraints due to fan coal fair play, were at are limit and that won't change.

3.) 10 Mar 2016 05:38:38
mike, would you have said Claudio Ranieri would consider Leicester before he was hired? There is no reason why we shouldn't be able to attract top name managers.

4.) 10 Mar 2016 08:09:46
mikedeblue I said 'chances are small' for a reason.

It all depends on situation. Who knows if a top manager will come. Good squad with money to spend. I know not many will agree with this one but I think we are just as attractive as Man Utd.

Our squad is underachieving. With a top manager in with money to spend I have no doubt our ability to get into champions league next season would increase greatly. I'd fancy us to get into top 4 next season with a manager who knows how to to set the team up defensively.

There's no doubt in my mind that it's Martinez that dropped a lot of points for us this season. Some people are questioning are we overrating the team and squad. No way is my opinion. Most people are saying we are underachieving. I totally agree with that.

5.) 11 Mar 2016 08:50:41
Ranieri wasn't really a top name manager before this season. He'd been sacked from 3 jobs in 4 years, with the last being the Greek national side. He was out of work. That is different from enticing an acknowledged managerial superstar like Simeone from a club that regularly challenges Barcelona and Real for La Liga, plays every season in the Champions League and are richer than we are. And before someone talks about our billionaire owner - his money is his, not ours. Our club is no richer than it was last month, although thankfully he's promised to invest (not give) some money. All this talk of Mourinho and Simeone will backfire when we (please God) get a new manager who realistically isn't going to be on that level. Whoever it is, we're going to have to get behind them.

Just been announced this years Hillsborough memorial will be the last .
I would be very interested in Everton Fans views
Mine is it gone on long enough now and right decision.

23 Oct 2015 14:38:15
Much has been written regarding the health of Bill K and I also hope he makes a full recovery but just as we are kept constantly in the dark over everything EVERTON I think someone sould have issued a statement re Bills health if only to stop speculation.
Furthermore as we have been looking for a new owner for many years and it is supporters like myself who have supported the BLUES for 60 years that are the real owners even if name only and deserve greater respect than we receive from EFC.
A point I do not think that has been made and is quite interesting is the true facts re Bills health may come to light next Thurs as not turning up for HK 's funeral would be a significant sign .
A side issue is I was told that the lord mayor was going to give us a update in Oct re the Walton Hall Park proposal, have I missed it!


1.) 23 Oct 2015 15:55:44
well put pal.

2.) 23 Oct 2015 15:17:31
Firstly I hope Bill is well and that they are just rumours about his health as I know he loves the club. The stadium issue I cannot see a good message coming on it, I hope and pray that the club will change ownership soon and when I say that it's nothing personal against Bill but simply to do with Everton moving forward we need owners that will invest and have the skills to attract investment for a new stadium. When I look at Bill I see a man who has a deep passion for the club although he made mistakes he did save us and I hope that is his legacy which is a respectful one. Football has changed and without investment our great club with fade away and that is the reality of it I know some people are afraid of change but it's the only way we can start competing for titles again there is too many clubs ahead of us in the money market. I don't like what football has become but that's just the way it is so we have to move with the times it's the only way we can be up there challenging again so yes I hope and pray that we will wake up to some exciting news some morning like Man city fans did if that is wrong well then I don't want to be right this board has taken us as far as they can it's time for a new chapter in the Everton story and I hope it's one we don't ever want to stop reading. Coyb If Bill is sick I hope he gets well soon.

{Ed025's Note - i used to think the same stef. investment investment investment. now, i'm not so sure, do i want the club to become a money pit for some soulless, faceless conglomerate? or do i like my club the way it is, a david amongst the every thing i hate about football goliaths?

i'm slowly coming around to thinking that i enjoy being the underdog, finding rocks and polishing them to become gems gives me enormous satisfaction, and when we kick the arse of the so called bigger teams with squillions of pounds there is no smugger feeling, i want everton to stay everton, the family club. the peoples club, i know a lot wont agree with me mate, but i dont really care. :)

3.) 23 Oct 2015 16:02:13
If it was me I would not appreciate the whole world knowing about my health problems. I would expect a rebuttal if the illness is not serious or nonexistent but if he has major problems I would hope that the press, supporters etc. would leave him alone to take whatever measures is required for a full recovery. If it is so major that he is unable to fulfill his role as Chairman then I would expect him to hand over the reigns to someone else either on a temporary or permanent basis depending on the severity of the illness. Either way he does not have to go into personal details of his illness.
Having said all of that I hope Bill makes a full recovery,

{Ed025's Note - thats exactly my view as well mike..

4.) 23 Oct 2015 16:05:02
Whilst we would all wish a full recovery for Bill Kenwright, it is a fact that those who hold sway at goodison, practice the mushroom aproch to the supporters ( keep them in the dark and sh. on them at all times) where did the 225m asking price come from? has an offer below this been made and rejected?, and, if Bill has a long term condition, are we going to have the same 10 years of drift, as happend with the long term decline of sir john mores? who is taking the day to day decisions? These are all, in my view, reasonable questions, but am not holding my breath for an answer.

{Ed025's Note - we are talking about a major company here JCW..not a barrow on a flea market!, of course people are in place to deputise mate, the fee for the club is not a figure clutched from thin air, financial experts have calculated the value and it is what it is, sometimes as fans we think with our hearts rather than our heads..

5.) 23 Oct 2015 16:27:09
That's your opinion ed and you are entitled to it, but not all takeovers have being bad but when it eventually happens and if we start winning titles again you will be jumping up and down with delight I understand what you are saying but Everton is too big a club mate to stay the underdogs and maybe that's my problem see I don't see Everton as underdogs although I know the opposition I still expect us to beat everyone I know that's not reality but it's how I feel when play teams. But in reality I know a takeover is our only real chance Goodison has had its day we need a new ground but it's not just about us ed it's about the younger generation of Evertonians success breads success and I want my son to experience the good old days when Everton where cream of the crop like I did I want Everton back where they belong and if that takes a foreign owner to come in and do it well then so be it but I respect your change of feelings mate.

{Ed025's Note - you feel how i used to feel stef...but just imagine us winning the league with this sort of team and with our antique stadium?, improbable i grant you, but the dream lives on mate.. :)

6.) 23 Oct 2015 16:47:59
If we could win the league ed with the team we have now I would never want a takeover and if I taught Goodison park would last another 100 years I would never want a new stadium but as you say the dream lives on mate and at the moment it's only a dream but one day maybe a reality again but time will tell but Bill won't just sell to anyone he will make sure the club will keep its tradition and Everton in the community he will have it all in the contract believe me he won't let go and just say a well feck it I guarantee it.

7.) 23 Oct 2015 23:20:55
not all takeovers have being bad, but when it eventually happens and if we start winning titles again you will be jumping up and down with delight. fair point but what if we don't win titles what if we get relegated.

think about how many clubs have been taken over, how many have won titles, compared to how many have had problems, been relegated, 1 thing I know is bk is a blue, he wants efc to win titles again. now if an offer came in from someone who he thought could get efc in a position to win these titles, I have no doubt at all he would sell the club.

we know and he knows he can't fund that, but until someone comes in with that bid, I am happy with bk. he gets lots of stick which in my opinion is unfair. he saved us from pj who nearly got us relegated, so close in fact it was goal difference on the last day that kept us up, to bk getting us were we are now.

so bk sells to a billionaire who just wants to own a club or a billonaire who wants to take efc to the next level. you can count on half a hand how many of the latter are in the premier league. be careful what you wish for.

8.) 24 Oct 2015 12:54:39
Very very well said toffeeblue. Agree with every word. Ed I like your outlook there too. If, and its a big if, Everton won the league with the way the club is being run now you couldn't win it in a more sweeter way.

Back when the big bucks started coming into the premiership and clubs were being bought and spending massive amounts of money people were questioning whether money can win the league. In hindsight we all know now it certainly can.

We also know it can ruin a club. Moyes and it now is starting to look like Martinez can cope with a small budget and unearth good players without spending £30m or £40m. If the club could keep improving by being shrewd in the transfer market and so on. It would be fantastic to be successful without a major investment.

As you say Ed we can dream. Otherwise I can't think of anyone better than BK at the helm to keep this great club on the right path. And if a prospective buyer does come along as toffeeblue points out you can bet it'll be a winner because BK won't sign over unless it is.

He's no way perfect like the rest of us but imo there is no one on the planet that could do a better job than BK at Everton. All these people who want him out, please tell me who is going to do better? What is the alternative?

Bet they haven't even considered that. All the while it is Bill himself who is on the lookout for a better alternative. If anyone can get it no doubt it will be Bill himself.

Get well soon, the big boss of Goodison, Bill Kenwright.

{Ed025's Note - good post that mate.

9.) 24 Oct 2015 16:49:29
Unless they introduce a system wereby points are subtracted relating to the amountvof money spent we are never ever going to get near winning the league. We have to accept that it is purely now based on who has the most money wins, sad but true.
I for one don't want to be happy accepting we are a good club, excellent morals but will never win.
we must get new owners or introduce a super league for the big spenders. How depressing is all this. Was great when in August virtually anyone could win the league.

10.) 24 Oct 2015 19:34:56
We can dream trebor and live in hope. Otherwise what's the point.

11.) 24 Oct 2015 20:17:17
I agree Trebor new owners are needed and desperately mate.

i keep reading that our new grounds capacity likely to be approx 50,000. obviously this is not fact, although i am sure someone knows. if it should turn out at approx 50,000 then it will be extremely short sited. we have this season for the first time in memory sold all season tickets.

we have a waiting list. we have far greater interest than for decades. we could also provide me seats to away fans. a new stadium on the waterfront will also attract more support and guarantee you 50,000 will be a major error and surely this is just a figure being plucked from the air.

But is it?


1.) 23 Jun 2017 21:49:41
Its easier to increase capacity than decrease it.

I have no doubt we would fill 60000 but to maintain that level can be difficult. Just look at city.

You don't make a lot of money in capacity but you do in the corporate side of it and this is the most important part.

Grounds these days are made to be expandable so I wouldn't worry too much about capacity.

{Ed002's Note - It is also about infrastructure - if the club goes over what the council can handle within their plans, the club pick up the tab.}

2.) 24 Jun 2017 02:05:05
I have been told that the initial plans are for 60,000 but it suspected that when it is costed out they will decrease it to 50,000.



08 Jun 2017 11:42:17
I do hope that all those that hoped for a Rooney return are now glad he is as I always said not likely to return and a very greedy man obviously obsessed with money and not really a true blue because in my opinion he could quite easily play for us for a very basic salary but he apparently has said he is not prepared to drop his salary to remain in the Prem league .
Footballers to me these days just seem to be another breed of human being .
Please don't give me the line if short career
He has enough money for many life times!


1.) 08 Jun 2017 12:45:45
I never wanted him back and it's not that he left us for those reds down the m62 it's the fact he took such delight kissing the utd badge at goodison park for me he isn't an Evertonion.

{Ed025's Note - i dont want him because hes finished bluey simple as that, bags of money and a lack of motivation for me, add to that him wanting a similar wage to what hes on now makes it a no brainer...thanks but no thanks shrek..

2.) 08 Jun 2017 14:50:31
Why would we give him xxx amount of thousands when his legs are gone no time for romance or nostalgia good luck Wayne we'll use that money on someone fresh tell ya what play for 50 grand a week.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see that can you billy?..

3.) 08 Jun 2017 15:11:25
yeah ED25 about a yard off the pace now days just can't get the image of him kissing his utd badge in front of the park end if I was in that end I would of pulled him in and I would be doing a long stretch at her majastys pleasure ha ha.

{Ed025's Note - love it bluey..



06 Jun 2017 16:37:53
Re recent buys I know it is easy to point the finger but whoever was responsible for the purchase of Naisse should be shot 13.5 M and £50,000 a week even Hull don't want him!
Mcgeady not far behind, let's be honest if
we were to make similar manager t decisions we be fired .
Was it Bill and Rob by any chance .
Someone shot down this morning for being critical of them . Bill been a brill EFC man but perhaps transfers not his forte but surely someone else scouted him
Love to know who it was and hope they not still doing it!


1.) 06 Jun 2017 17:54:40
Niasse was bought by Martinez on the recommendation of his Chief Scout Kevin Reeves.

2.) 06 Jun 2017 21:09:09
I hope rom is a bench warmer like lescott, l love it every time stones makes a mistake, I enjoy watching gosling move to a smaller club. if Ross has not got balls to stay and fight for us the same go's for him. players like Naismith get my respect and best wishes. I'm not bitter, I'm just being honest. good luck to my fellow blues for next season.



28 May 2017 13:01:17
Re Rooney
Latest news is Koeman has cooled on him
I was prepared to have him or not but on reflection when you look at his wage demands overall Koeman probably correct .
Let's face it they all greedy B . s and how come you or me if retired would possibly be happy to work for a charity in a voluntary capacity but footballers no matter how wealthy want more and more money .
Rooney could have made himself a Icon of massive proportions by saying " I love Everton I have more money than I or my family will ever need I will come to you in whatever capacity you want for my love of my great club
Nice thought though.


1.) 28 May 2017 13:46:59
Well we'll see what happens. One thing though if he opts for China or the US he can kiss the World Cup in 2018 goodbye. It does beggar belief that £150k a week isn't enough for these guys.

2.) 28 May 2017 16:55:05
Looks like stoke want him as well for £45m, I think that will price us out of it, even if we do get £50m for Barkley from West Ham.



14 May 2017 19:43:57
I have been a BLUE for 65 years .
Can someone tell me what LFC have that we haven't?
I was convinced our youngsters would lose Monday night Simply cos they were playing RS.

Take today's game at WHU how did we perform so badly .
Seriously are their players that much better . I look at their team no Gerrard no Carragher no Rush or Dalglish to worry about so why do we in comparison perform the way we do in comparison!


1.) 14 May 2017 23:41:49
They just won the league. don't be so negative.

2.) 15 May 2017 15:59:11
You are completely missing the point Hugo
Yes they win the league, Yes brilliant BUT everyone I know not just me said they would loose re RS.

Anyway that was a side issue first team have not and I am simply saying their team in my opinion is no better than ours so I am asking what gives them this superiority is it BELIEF or TACTICS or are the opposition beaten often before they play them .

I know they have had major slip ups this year and Thank God cos if not they would have won the title .

I am not being negative at all, I think our record against RS is probably the worst in Premier league by a mile. Everyone is saying we over achieved, I think we done better than we were OBVIOUSLY the stats show that but I still think we should be far far closer to RS this season than we are. Certain players could have done better but that opens another can of worms.

Exactly what I was going to say JMW1878.
Was thinking of Lukaku attitude compared to Vardy I always been impressed with his attitude and desire to help the team .

Toffee Ace don't understand your logic at all.
If you were a manager of anything and you gave someone an ultimatum and they turned you down I don't think you would be a happy bunny if you chief executive over tuned you you would have little option but resign
Same applies with Ron
Also I will be so angry if it is true who wants a player you have to beg to stay NOT ME.

Hi re Ramirez keeps saying 21 year old he looks at least 31 Ed have they got the age correct .
Also the amount of money top 6 are talking of spending we will be lucky to Finnish any higher next season than 7 th unless we do a Leicester.


{Ed025's Note - he is 21 trebor, all the teams have sky money to spend so the fight for top players will be fierce, we wont be able to live with the city, chelsea and united,s of this world financially mate so we have to live with that, but spending big money does not always guarantee success...well i hope not mate..

I am at a loss for words saying we have a diamond in Ross Barclay.
He shown no form for a few seasons, he totally disrespected the club he suppose to love .
Everton have bent over backwards to help him .
I trust Koeman
Koeman is also looking at it logically and in the cold light of day NOT through rose tinted specs
I was all for giving him another chance last season, then again when he was ignoring a new and excellent contract
I hope to God he goes as I am sorry but I don't like his attitude one bit .
I want players of the Peter Reid Ilk any time over Barclays.

I have to say I am a little frustrated and sad that a football tournament of such note has been so badly publicised given the mass coverage of everything that virtually moves in relation to football .
It may not be the seniors but I still think the tournament should have been on BBC or ITV and far more should have been made of it on news outlets etc
Obviously there is little money involved because let's face it the Prem league basically controls nearly all in football these days.

Excellent post JMW1878
Totally agree and yet I was slated for saying it early doors.
Only want players who are EFC blue .
Big Dunc, Sharpe, and those of the Peter Reid ilk are what we want .
I know the game is to score goals but Lukaku must be the worst footballer I have ever witnessed other than scoring goals . Ha ha Brett Angela had more skill than him!
Also Harper who we all gave stuck to had far more hunger and desire . Don't think Lukaku capable of breaking into a sweat!

I recently saw a few clubs who had players like Lukaku wanting to leave and they have issued ULTIMATUM DATES whereby if the deal is not agreed by that date they will keep the player even if it does mean getting less for them at a later date .
EFC cannot afford to let Chelsea and Man U to spend the next few months drag on then he goes, yes we have a bundle of cash but clubs know we have and most importantly LITTLE TIME to get a replacement.
If they want Lukaku then they should be looking at a pre contract agreement.
Nb RedS seem to be getting pre contract agreements with half of Europe ha ha not that it will do them any good.
