SSN reporting PSG bid 21.5m for Gueye player keen to go personally I don't blame him!


1.) 27 Jan 2019 21:13:22
If the offer was right I would sell if the player wants to go. Seems to low an offer though. Maybe with his age and give us a chance to bring a new midfielder in. A new face may give everyone a lift. I like Gueye and he maybe a player you can get a few years out of like Fernandinho at 34. He’s not a leader though and maybe his replacement might and the balance in midfield could improve. Someone like Doucoure would be advantageous at defending set pieces.

2.) 27 Jan 2019 23:05:35
He’s 29 so £21m is a rubbish offer on market value he is in his prime now.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 23:30:59
Would you bring in a new midfielder now if Gueye went?
Goals is an area to be addressed so I’d move on a striker as we do have Jimmy Mc, Davies and Beni who could step up.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 08:06:17
I can see the logic Southern the problem I can see what striker? Nobody stands out and as we all know January’s not the best time. We don’t want to go out and buy a £20m striker and be same as Tosun. We need top striker and need to pay £60/ 70m. That type of player won’t be available until the summer then we need to convince them we are going somewhere! Easier said than done at the moment.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 11:46:55
Couldn't agree more STB, something I've said before. Posters on here have been crying out for the '20 goals a season man' for a long time. As if such a thing is common everywhere.

Personally I still think our biggest issue is not enough goals/ support from elsewhere.

Bernard, Walcott and to a lesser extent Gomes/ Lookman need to be creating more problems for defenses. With the exception of Richarlison we play like our only plan is to get the ball in the box to a striker. This means defenders can focus on stifling whoever that is, and until the support players get more involved and pose some questions that won't change, no matter who is up front.

Whether that is down to the players or Silva is the question!

Connor Wickham is back and fit lol.

interesting rumour doing the rounds, According to Calcio Mercato, Everton snubbed a swap proposal from Inter Milan on deadline day, which involved Morgan Schneiderlin and Marcelo Brozovic.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 08:49:51
I'd have taken that all day long.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 15:49:21

3.) 01 Feb 2018 20:14:41
Unless he's the Croatian Schneiderlin.

Find it hard to take some posters snide comments on here although I understand it's a banter site.
Firstly it appears Big Sam is our new permanent manager, that if it true is done!
Hopefully he's the right man to turn our season, however it won't happen overnight.
Let's hope in January Walsh does what he's paid to do and brings some quality fresh talent into the squad!

We had little options available and they've turned to a specialist in reversing our current position.
He has spoken respectfully of the club and it's history and supporters I for one will be right behind him as he is our hope, I understand many peoples resentment and he like many has made a mistake but we all deserve a second chance, it was very costly for him!

We need a win tonight to lift everyone at this great club!


1.) 30 Nov 2017 12:20:50
Good shout mate, we have to live and let live, just get so fed up with some of these snide posts on here mate same as you, i will get behind whoever wants to help our Great Club, end of.

2.) 01 Dec 2017 18:54:32
In my opinion he no more made a mistake than many of us would. If someone approached me while under contract it does not necessarily mean I would not listen to them as indeed he did. Also I would point out I could perhaps be interested in the future but that I and you would have to discuss with my present employers again which is exactly what Sam did and said. It is only the hysteria perpetuated by the media in this Country that fans the fire.



20 Jul 2017 17:56:10
We were linked with Rachid Ghezzal in January I believe he is now a free agent, anyone know if we still have an interest in him?


{Ed002's Note - He has made it clear he has no interest in moving to Everton.}

1.) 20 Jul 2017 19:21:22
Reports today Rachid Ghezzal is in talks with Watford.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 19:49:09
He must really dislike Everton if he's interested in Watford rather than us. Good old rumours eh 🤣.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 10:09:25
Contradicts what he said last year then, I remember reading a report that he wanted to join a team playing in Europe, I am sure Watford aren't in Europe!



15 May 2017 15:45:42
Has anyone else seen the leaked pic of the supposed kit with Sportpesa logo?
I do hope its a red herring and not the actual shirt, it looks a training kit!


{Ed007's Note - efckit

1.) 15 May 2017 16:20:30
seen that it's definitely the training kit.

2.) 15 May 2017 16:21:22
Looks more like a training type shirt that.

3.) 15 May 2017 16:34:09
yes strange because the teaser on the website looks to be a lighter blue.

4.) 15 May 2017 17:43:31
To me it looks like the training top for next year guess we will find out tommorrow for sure.

Centre backs all over the place do they not talk and know who they are picking up? Absolute basics!


1.) 04 Dec 2019 20:58:06
Totally agree, and then he takes of Sidibe. Baffling.

2.) 04 Dec 2019 21:17:48
What do we do in training regarding defence, we make it so easy for other teams, we look like amateurs at the back, the basics of defending have eluded yet another of our managers.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:24:34
Because he's always out of position and passing was terrible.



29 Oct 2019 20:48:31
Same formation same lacklustre performance if silva needs to move forward he needs to get some emotions in his personality and motivate this team, they are devoid of all confidence and are struggling tonight this is a game Watford can nick if we are not careful.
For gods sake man let's give these boys a lift maybe go 4-4-2 but we need to do something different otherwise his job will go and he will ask himself has he reallydone enough.
Mina injured that's a shock . again.


1.) 29 Oct 2019 21:00:37
He is playing all the players you want him to play you have your wishes.

2.) 29 Oct 2019 21:39:35
He is playing what he has available, took Kean off at ht if the lad lacked confidence Playing him out of position won’t help.
This result only papers over the cracks, we now wait for the weekend!

3.) 29 Oct 2019 23:25:19
Playing players out of position?
If players want to play and they can't challenge for the one position they play in then they need to challenge for a similar position.
This team is not performing to it's best so almost all positions are up for grabs.
What happened to getting a chance and taking the bull by the horns?

4.) 30 Oct 2019 09:20:15
doesnt work like that smit. players are bought for specific positions.



26 Jan 2019 20:08:55
Most posts tonight are fair without to much knee jerk reaction.
However listening today on the radio and looking at the financial position we are in with no money because of the poor player recruitment we have undergone over the past few years points to the board, to many managers to quickly replaced and poor scouting or dof placement.
Tonight we saw a mid table premier club lacking a game plan, and motivation against a struggling lower championship side enjoying a day out in the FA cup with a desire to beat the odds!
We had a strong side out but how can you defend the statistic of 3 yes 3 shots on target in a game with these stats!
Siggy, lookman, DCL, Richarlison as our forward players surely this is not enough!
Same formation failed again, although we dominated the game in possession stats we did F*** all with that!
Defence is a shambles and at this time in the season I see why Barcelona sold Mina! Keane is still poor and the only plus is Zouma!
I want to give the manager a chance but he cannot get the best from this group is lacking motivation and tactics! This is looking like de ja vue 3rd year on the trot!
Best of luck Milwall you showed a lot of heart and deserve it!




22 Jan 2019 10:51:00
One thing Moyes did right was he had a smaller tighter squad with excellent team spirit, it seem that as we all wished for greater spending power we didn't allow for reckless and under researched pre purchase policies. Even with so called chief scout or DoF we have failed miserably.
The downside now is trimming the squad, players we have paid over the odds for or who have grossly underperformed are having to be loaned as no one is willing to pay the price we are asking for!
Is it a case of be careful what you wish for and of course are the right people making the decisions?
Of this years crop Digne is looking good Gomes has talent as does Richarlison, however Mina seems to be taking time to adapt.
In a season we had so many high hopes for it again is at this point an abject farce and it feels like we are going nowhere and have no answer to our misfiring tactics!
No doubt we will need to be patient and see what happens in the window, but if we have to sell before we buy I won't hold my breath and wait!


1.) 22 Jan 2019 16:42:49
This season was always going to be for remodeling and bedding players into the new style/ tactics. It will take a few windows to trim the squad and fill it with players who are suited to Silvas style.

We are still in touching distance of 7th and in no fear of relegation
so let's just see where we end up and what the summer brings.



09 Aug 2018 22:14:12
On top of the fantastic business we have done we have Lookman and Dowell to integrate and learn from the quality around them exciting times to be a blue!


{Ed025's Note - i would say so wakka..

1.) 09 Aug 2018 22:23:21
Like you I’ve seen it all before ed025 last season was never right for me but this year feels like it has been a plan and the signings were selected to fit not just desperately bought to placate the fans!

{Ed025's Note - time will tell of course wakka but i have a good feeling about the recruitment this time mate..

2.) 09 Aug 2018 23:04:33
So have I, seems to have a plan whereas last year was just badly thought through.
Well done Brants for his work today it takes a lot of planning to pull of a final day like this. Walsh could not have done it that's for sure.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 01:58:34
Yeah mate there definitely seems to have been a plan this time, seems like we've got a well balanced squad. There's no guarantee all the new signings will be suited to the prem, but I've got a feeling they will. Got to take my hat off to Farhad, Brands, Silva and everyone else involved in the best transfer window we've ever had.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 07:39:56
As well as the previous planning and assumptions made by Brands and Silva, I believe the pre-season games gave Silva (his advisors and coaches) in particular a heads up on the true weaknesses in the Squad, hence the immense effort in the final hours of the window. All I can say about that is, thankyou Mr Brands and Mr Silva.

I cannot say any of the candidates being touted in the press are really good enough especially reading their cv’s, we appear to be about to jump to quickly again and make another massive mistake that will inevitably cost millions!
We need to take time and appoint someone with the right credentials that understands the club and the premier league!
Saturday was a relief, a breath of fresh air but it could just be an impact result, the board need to plan carefully for the future!

Actually going back to Moyes and if he was able to put us back where he left us would be a step forward as we’ve regressed since he left!

To many fans expect instantaneous positive results, it takes time to bring in and replace players.
Installing new ideas and styles of play it takes time so no one is happy with results it may take another window to change another couple but patience is key at this time!

To early to knee jerk for gods sake!
Silva will not be sacked at this point in the season, in fact probably not until it seems all is lost!
The board have chased this man so they are not going to give up early.
None of us are happy but we have to stick by him and the team through this bad patch.


{Ed002's Note - It was the owner who took advice to identify Silva as The Nifty One.}

Agree with DaveW Zouma has been solid this season and we need to secure his services and hope a good pre season should get Mina fully fit and ready to add to the defence.
Holgate is just not good enough he lacks strength and gets caught to often ball watching, he has had games but he’s not there for me. Tom Davies looked so promising a year or so ago but has become nothing more than a squad player.
It worries me we are linked to the likes of Rondon or Mitrovic as the main striker both bang average and I’m sure if he played every week Tosun would score more.
Early days and trusting the new set up so it’s a case of lip biting and being patient as always! COYB.

Everton fc are normally a class club when it comes to supporting people charity and local issues, let’s hope this is the case with Silva, if he’s going let it be with dignity and not drag it out with him being the scapegoat that fans vent their displeasure at on the weekend!
Although he’s still paid to do the job and its obviously not working then put him out of his misery as he cannot change things round at this late stage!

Whether he is just tactically inept or afraid to make positive substitutions for me it is his lack of passion or positivity! Regardless of the result he stands on the sideline like a sulky schoolboy, the odd punch of the air when we score nothing else!
How can he possibly motivate a changing room when we are down and lacking confidence?

Very good posts and input from ed002 I to have supported Everton since the sixties and have seen good and bad times, and agree the turmoil at present has never been at this level. I think we have just thrown money at the issues without plan or purpose over the last few seasons and now have an unbalanced side with an abundance of players that are not only good enough but have devalued and are now difficult to move on.

We tried unsworth last time which didn’t work Moyes would
Be ideal in the interim and should steady the ship.
What is frustrating is we are back in the same position that we ended up bringing Allardyce in a year ago, this time the board must take good advice and bring in the right manager, Silva never had the credentials for the job in the first place.
