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.


{Ed025's Note - not for me it has not trebor, and i expect the families feel the same, the inquests have not finished yet or the culprits brought to justice, should poppy day be abolished as it was so long ago?...no, that terrible tragedy at hillsborough transcends football and..."lest we forget"..

Agree totally ed lest we forget.

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 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.

3.) 15 May 2017 17:47:33
Honestly, i misread it the first time. I thought it was regarding the U23's.



07 Dec 2016 10:40:05
Why is it especially with Everton, the transfer deals are not done until its virtually too late.
If you can buy a new car from 1st Jan as an example why would you wait till the 31 st to purchase it.
You could have had 4 weeks use of it by then . We need to secure deals early so as to help with the present slide and the injury to Bolasie .
Any thoughts?


1.) 07 Dec 2016 21:01:53
In the past, we certainly had to do late deals because of the club's financial limitations.
In the Summer, we weren't as active as we'd have liked, but RK and SW didn't join until partway through the pre-season.
For January, I agree that we should have deals already being put in place now and just because they're not being confirmed ahead of time is no reason to be concerned.
However, if the deals aren't confirmed early on in the window, then I'll start to express concern.
Mind you, a last-minute deal for a special player wouldn't be that terrible as long as the rest of the deals have been done and dusted early on.

2.) 07 Dec 2016 21:46:17
Are you moaning about transfers 21 days before thd window is even open? Utter madness.

3.) 07 Dec 2016 21:49:26
I'd also like to think we're ahead of the game, especially as it's the January window. But in saying that there is a certain excitement about a last minute deal for someone completely unexpected.

4.) 08 Dec 2016 20:53:58
Bluejohnuns, i think the moaning is because of our record in the window and our recent form. Yes 3 weeks till window opens but be nice if we get players in early. If the window was closing sooner they would all be in earlier so why wait!

5.) 09 Dec 2016 12:58:23
If we were going to a shop and buying something off the shelf then yes the 1st of the month we would be there at 9am for when the shop opened.

However, we are trying to buy a player from a team that doesn't want to sell and therefore if we want them there is going to be negotiation after negotiation. It is not our fault what happens when buying a player and it is totally out of our control.

Fans always blame the wrong people, always.



03 Dec 2016 14:06:57
LUKAKU has run 23 miles less than Fimino and 400 less sprints with similar amount of time on pitch, just as bad against Costa, Sanchez and Aguero .
i always said he's bone idol.
i don't care how many goals he gets its not enough, he needs to do far more.


{Ed033's Note - Is Lukaku idle or an idol?

1.) 03 Dec 2016 14:45:28
I'd say he's more Born Idol than bone idle.

2.) 03 Dec 2016 17:29:24
It's not only that he carnt trap a ball or hold a ball up, half the goals he get are when someone else put it on his head, but who else have we got, we can still get 3pts tomorrow.

3.) 04 Dec 2016 14:27:05
Ur quick to have a go at lukaku but let's face facts if he get the ryt service he is unstopable same old same old cross cross cross were is tje service threw the centre of fhe pitch we are terrible in the midfield no closing down no wanting the ball to blame lukaku i think is wrong we no what he can do plus to add to he he plays up top on his own So up top on ya own with minimal service. :/.



08 Sep 2016 12:11:10
How about chatting about the possible stadium move in light of what Joe Andserson tweeted recently?




01 Sep 2016 15:49:41
Hi fellow Blues i for one am VERY HAPPY with the transfers, yes another top class striker would have put the icing on the cake but not at any price.
moving on i actually thought EVERTON were going to announce the details re our possible ground move today, now that the publicity is now removed from all the transfers.

Joe Anderson intimated on twitter as to a imminent announcement and a possible site . Was he just chatting as a Evertonian as i would not have thought it possible for him to make comments in his official a capacity .
If the matter had been finalised in early August perhaps we could have been in in Aug 2018 but that now looks unlikely.
It would be really superb if they could run a spur to the stadium from say Sandhills rather than the buses.

Are we in negotiations with Peel Holdings or like some of the transfer gossip just hot air
i have been waiting patiently since we lost Kings Dock for us to get a announcement on a move to the docks .


1.) 01 Sep 2016 16:13:53
I'm happy now feel if we keep this squad and manager we could do something just think we need to take step by step I would love us to jump from 11th to top 3 but we got to be realistic about things.

{Ed025's Note - right..

In my honest opinion, sadly at moment we have two teams a home team full of attack and promise and a away team far less so . The so called big teams play the same way home and away we need to do the same we could do no worse than we have.

I think Skylark has a valid point.
If you look at Lukakus record against top sides it is rubbish. He says he wants to play in the Champions League, but at present he would struggle. As for Ross, Bless him, he seems to have some flaw as I see many midfield players play week in week out as good or better than him.
He really got to show his class and stamp his authority in the big games.

I tend to get a lot of stick re my criticism of EFC particulatray in regards to communication.
Be it the ground or transfers always on last minute
But when EFC said they would be shortly issuing a statement re Barclay I laughed my head off
When have EFC ever done anything remotely quickly
Sorry but they getting a reputation for it .
Someone is getting a lot of money to sort these things out and no doubt it will be the same with transfers
We will end up scraping about on deadline day as per usual
The days of Jim Greenwood and Harry Caterick are long gone!

Thanks Ed since then a very interesting article on BBC sport that it is a clever ploy to get other parties interested so he can sell his shares and plough money into Everton
I do hope so.


{Ed001's Note - there are parties interested in buying his Arsenal shares anyway, but he chose to buy more when Moshiri sold up.}

ED I am wondering now that USMANOVS offer for control of Arsenal, that this will be the turning point with USMANOV and he will now turn his back on Arsenal and with his links to EFC and friend of our new owner will be to our benefit.
What's your take on this Ed?


{Ed001's Note - wishful thinking probably. He is an Arsenal fan looking to own more of Arsenal. I guess you never truly know for sure though.}

I agree with Buster Jones .
Lukaku is a mercenary . No values except in his pocket .
Our form has 100% been affected by his attitude .
If fans were saying this about along term servant or a Peter Reid I would agree with criticising Buster but Lukaku is not a Blue he is a greedy boy who used Everton and deserves all the criticism that is pointed at him .
In fact it amazes me that anyone supports him and The in reality huge numbers of knowledgeable EFC people I know have all been critical of him and will be glad to see the back of him .
We will remember Dean Hickson Young Latchford Gray Sharpe but Lukaku I doubt it .
Moving on to Barclay I have reached the opinion that I am actually saddened by his behaviour.
A true blue err I don't think so otherwise he would have signed some time ago
He may still sign after all he is showing off the new kit, but on the other hand we are talking Everton I don't think they capable of planning that far ahead!
