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..

Will it go via Cardiff Bay?

I wonder how many Welsh fans we have who come to Goodison. Going to look right idiots arriving in a rowing boat.

Even better when we block the dock moorings for our Viking neighbours travelling on their long ships for their match Days.

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

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.

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.

19 Aug 2017 05:33:16
I M H O we need a striker and Danny Welbeck is more of a provider, this is borne out by his goal tally .
We need a traditional EFC centre forward i. e. DEAN LAWTON HICKSON PICKERING GRAY SHARPE and Co
Who this is I do not know .
Who knew of Jamie Vardy, so it could be a unknown but a centre forward would take us to another level
It's not so much how good they are but the actual position .
Good players around him ( whom we have now in abundance ) would help him enormously.
Who could it turn out to be?


1.) 19 Aug 2017 14:02:02
Well Trebor we only have two weeks or less to find out who it will be. Maybe nobody and we have to rely on the players we have. I believe that the days of buying someone on a crises basis on the last day of the transfer window is long gone.



11 Aug 2017 15:56:57
When one of us Blues comments on a striker needed it sometimes looks like we Moaning or panicking but in my opinion what had initially looked like a brill transfer window is now being spoilt .
Not just me saying it but Phil Mcnulty
He also recognizes that non of our transfers so far will be of any use unless we get a top class striker in .
Brill signings yes but only a strong foundation but without the roof all a bit of a waste!


1.) 11 Aug 2017 16:17:28
The club has not finished Trebor. they are looking for a striker, a. n. other (Sig) and a CB. in my book along with the quality of the 'fringe' players. and the youth, e. g. Kenny. etc. if they get the other additions then McNulty etal will probably retract those words. there are 3 weeks left.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 16:18:20
Don't panic things are going right way, plenty of time to get more deals done. Sigurdsson will be done by Monday and then striker will follow, i would not be surprised by a deal or loan on deadline day.



08 Aug 2017 15:38:36
Evryone is concentrating on the Sig transfer that very little seems to be said about what to me is 100% vital and that is a 20+ a season striker .
RK must have something in the pipe line but what is anyone's guess .
Without one WE WILL STRUGGLE with one it will still be difficult for the first month because while we have done brilliantly in the market so far the one we needed most of any was this 20+ man a season .
Pickford and Keane as well as Sandro great signings but a jigsaw looks nothing if not complete .
Yes I know I am another negative fan you keep going on about but with the horrendous start we have a settled side in now would have been perfect but I am just praying we get a centre forward in for what Everton have always been famous for .
I hope they not wasting any more time on Giroud he never had any interest in coming to us.


1.) 08 Aug 2017 16:04:50
That's not a negative post mate just stating the fact that we are in dire need of a striker, good post 100% correct 😄.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 16:05:15
how do you know sandro isn't a 20 goal a season striker?

3.) 08 Aug 2017 16:06:14
I don't think we will struggle. We don't need a 20 goal a season striker, we need the team to be better collectively at scoring. This point has been made over and over again. It was all about 1 guy last season so this year RK wants to share the goal scoring responsibilities throughout the team. That'll make it harder to defend against and more productive away from home.

4.) 08 Aug 2017 16:18:23
How many strikers got 20+ in prem last season 3 I think and one of them was ours so who do you suggest.

5.) 08 Aug 2017 17:15:03
I tried saying this a few days back. I understand why fans want sig at the club, he's a high quality player that will undoubtedly improve us, but a goal scorer is more important. There's really no point in controlling a game from midfield if we struggle to score. i'm very hopeful that Sandro will be a success and Calvert-Lewin may even step up this year and score a few, but if they dont, we have to wait til Jan to rectify the problem. I think its something we should focus on much more than trying to complete Sig.

6.) 08 Aug 2017 17:25:03
As Truebluemetz79 states the only strikers consistently scoring 20+ over the last 3 season are Kane and Aguero and I can't see us putting a bid in for either of them. Sanchez is the next option but can't see that happening either. Wishful thinking trebor I am affriad.

7.) 08 Aug 2017 17:58:34
Err didn't lukaku score 19 the season before and we finished 11th. It is not all about him and his goals. We have qualified for Europe enough times in the last 10 years without a 20 goal a season striker yet some of you think it is the holy grail.

8.) 08 Aug 2017 18:42:34
Also I hate to say it but the stats don't lie Liverpool got top 4 and no one got near 20 prem goals for them.

9.) 08 Aug 2017 19:04:05
I think some of you are missing the point, it's not necessarily saying we need a 20 goal a season striker, just a striker who will score a decent amount. How many did the rest of our players score last season? We just cannot allow a season where our highest scorer is on 6 goals. Its ok saying koeman wants to spread the goals out around the team but wanting it and it actually happening is another matter. We need a proven striker and anyone saying different is just being stubborn for the sake of arguing with posts on here.



07 Aug 2017 10:37:24
I really find Daniel Levy leaves a bitter taste in my mouth .
It is obvious what his game is re Barclay .
Leave it till last day and hope we panic into letting Barclay go on the cheap.
We already dropped the price to attract buyers but as far as we are being told no interest, although I am sure there is .
I know it's not my money but I would rather keep him ( silly lad that he is ) than sell him to Levy who always seems to be a thorn in our side .


1.) 07 Aug 2017 11:02:21

2.) 07 Aug 2017 13:18:38
I wouldn't sell to spurs anyway we have already sold 1 player to one of our rivals I don't want to strengthen another one.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 13:54:02
He would weaken them not strengthen them, Barclay is a no mark and we are asking to much for him, let's just get rid of him.



29 Jul 2017 05:19:09
Last year the tabacco warehouse which will make up part of the north Liverpool development of Peel Holdings was a hive of activity with a new roof being added in steel which was to have penthouses above it .
It would appear that nothing is now happening .
One crane is no longer in action and another has been only a quarter built and no more added at all this year .
I believe the owner is a Dublin guy
Having recently driven past the whole area, other than some activity re the new dual carriageway the feeling is that of a ghost town .
I expected it to be buzzing can anyone enlighten me as to what is occurring .
The tabacco warehouse as you will all know is the biggest brick built warehouse in the world .


1.) 29 Jul 2017 07:29:00
Regarding tobaco wrehouse, don't worry same thing happened with the hotel next door, titanic, same irish guy owns that i think, anyway half way through he stopped all work whilst waiting for grants from council and europe, only thing is don't know the situation re europe now, but he bought the tobaco warehouse at the same time he bought the titanic building, long before everton was linked to the dock site.

Dont worry Mr Moshiri will buy that too 😉.

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..

Can I ask why this post re Echo has been written
I loathe the Red Echo and am constantly writing about them .
I never known a more biased paper .
I am suprised more people have not been more pro active about it .
They are biased beyond belief .
It's even has a red motif and they even put LFC posts on the EFC web page
Long gone are the days of Michael Charters

I am not agreeing to what Ryan said or should I say way he said it re " cancer to this site " but he did praise Ed 25 and there is a vast difference between what Ed 2 and Ed 25 day and more importantly HOW they say it .
I myself have commented before on Ed 2 and that in my opinion he is often quite insulting to both individuals and EFC in her general and extremely surprised that he has not been asked by whoever managers the site overall to tone it down .
I suspect that many posts complaining about him have not been shown as several of mine in this subject have not . Nobody is not saying he works hard to provide the information he does but so does Ed 25 for example but there is no need to be outright rude as Ed 2 often is
I am hopeful you will print this and NOT ban me
I have not been insulting just giving a honest opinion that if you insult someone or are rude to them then you got to expect criticism BUT NOT THE WAY RYAN SPOKE and I am sorry for that .
All the public sector workers all work hard but that does not mean they can just go round insulting people and a vast number of Ed 2 posts are very cutting to Everton supporters
Just saying.
