El Gahzi in loan deal till the end of the season option but no obligation to buy number 34 shirt.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2022 20:01:52
Hearing we can make permanent for 8m which in this day and age isn’t bad (certainly better than what we paid for Iwobi) if he’s crap just send him back.

13 Jan 2022 20:06:08
Good deal no brainer.

13 Jan 2022 20:37:24
At the end of the day that must’ve better than having3 goalkeepers on the bench.

13 Jan 2022 20:44:16
Three goalkeepers is better than three Iwobi's GB!

13 Jan 2022 20:47:14
I like that Mike mate that’s very true.

13 Jan 2022 21:33:50
From what I’m reading, he was well thought of by a lot of Villa fans.

13 Jan 2022 21:38:49
Good deal I think, low risk, I still cannot believe the Iwobi transfer, got to be one of the worst in Prem history, one day I think I’ll wake up and it’ll all be a bad dream.

13 Jan 2022 21:45:52
Defo an upgrade on what we have mate, and on loan.

{Ed002's Note - Defo (RW/F) Versatile Brazilian Defo is not interested in joining Everton.}

13 Jan 2022 22:39:11
??? Ed002 what a guy!

13 Jan 2022 22:41:59
Hahahaha Ed, I'm howling. So funny, even though you probably don't know why it's funny.

13 Jan 2022 23:19:09
Good one Ed002. You must be practicing for that Rodeo Clown job?

13 Jan 2022 23:31:47
I don't think for one minute Ed means to be rude, but by eck echoes my sentiments. ! Pulse check anyone?

13 Jan 2022 23:33:28
Yet again an upgrade on who?

13 Jan 2022 17:43:17
Perhaps not everybody understands what goes on behind the scenes. I love Everton as you do too, but unfortunately there are people who don't want the same goal as most. I love you bro, and I'll be rooting for you, wherever you go. Bernard's reply to Dignes goodbye message.

Evertons reply to Digne leaving. Lucas Digne has completed a transfer to Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.

For whatever reason he was not at his best this year, maybe him, maybe Rafa but for the last few years been a stunning player for us. Deserves a lot more respect and acknowledgement.

13 Jan 2022 18:45:28
For Bernard to say most people don’t see what goes on behind the scene at Everton is insinuating that there is a deep rooted problem before Rafa was appointed, interesting and alarming statement to make, no wonder the owner is making a complete new review of the club.

13 Jan 2022 18:45:43
Can't all be blamed at benitez door. he wasn't even there when Bernard left. Gary speed always said he would tell all when he retired. sadly never did.

There must be issues deeper than just the manager, who is taking a lot of flak.

Some rightly so but he will live or die by this transfer window now he's got a few of his own players in.

13 Jan 2022 19:29:10
a lot of people are gutted that digne has gone i say good ridance he has been a fraud for the last two years and also all this crap about loving efc ask him why his wife would not move to the uk and that's why maybe CA let him go home to france twice a week wich rafa put a stop to.

13 Jan 2022 23:37:35
Stats say otherwise thomo. Digne one of the best WB in Europe. C.V. focused fees, 25 Mill a brill deal.

13 Jan 2022 19:11:00
Would be good to hear the EDs point of view on what they suspect Bernard and Digne are referring to.

{Ed025's Note - they are looking out for themselves BB so take it with a pinch of salt mate..

13 Jan 2022 20:09:07
Would be interesting to know what actually happened between the two of them but doubt we ever will.

However Digne has had numerous digs since left - his Instagram post as well as him saying he’s gone to villa because of Steven Gerrard.

13 Jan 2022 10:11:46
Golovin from Monaco being linked apparently we have inquired about his availability.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Jan 2022 10:47:45
Tim Cahill likes him Jose likes him from 'Footballfancast' he's a ''dynamic playmaker' I hope Rafa likes ?.

13 Jan 2022 10:48:19
I don't understand these posts putting down Benitez. All great managers have their faults, just look at the likes of Mourhino. Benitez inherited an overrated, underperforming bunch of overpaid but mediocre players. He brought in Townsend and Gray for 1.7m and they are the best on the park. Speaks volumes. He has had to deal with multiple lt injures that a small squad cannot stand. The important players are just getting back and he has brought in some youngsters with incredible futures. Support him until tge summer and i believe we will move steadily up the table. He wants players with desire that will give their all. So do i.

13 Jan 2022 10:58:35
I don't think we have much choice really Alfar, he is the Boss and that's it, and those of us that are on the 'doubtful' side are just keeping their fingers crossed mate. . . that the results improve and that's just about the size of it with me anyway.

13 Jan 2022 11:54:44
With you there Alfar mate been saying that for ages about Rafa he does need a few windows and time and with the injuries coming to an end with our top players, also did so well in the first window with Gray and Townsend, hopefully 2 or 3 more in and we will move up the table, one thing he has to do though for me is play the youngsters of Dobbin, Simms etc and drop Rondon as even my patience is wearing thin with him, but the future of our Club is certainly looking brighter mate,

13 Jan 2022 12:01:39
Not sure how many on this forum actually go to the games. For the rest of us we can only show our frustration on here. Yes all managers make mistakes but Rafa sees to make more than most. Football is supposed to be entertaining, Rafa style of football is terrible to watch. I do like most of the new players he has taken in, apart from Rondon. We will have to see what happens when all the wounded players are back in action. What I can tell you is the style of football has to improve otherwise my TV will be switched off and those who actually go to the games will not stop showing their frustration.

13 Jan 2022 12:13:45
Definitive post Mike.

13 Jan 2022 12:14:31
Alfar1963 A lot of the fan base didn't want Benitez and thought it was an unacceptable appointment others thought it was not a problem as long as the team improved. We would all probably agree that on the transfer front we have seen an improvement. On the playing side our results speak for themselves. Benitez has used the injury issue continually as an excuse which to be fair is quite is a reasonable response. However, while we have had numerous injuries he has set up the side very defensively which hasn't worked as we ship goals and lost matches due to his lack of tactical awareness or reluctance to change what he thinks is a winning formula. I personally don't have a problem with his defensive football as long as we don't loose. Yes he may well be the man we need to sort the club out but at what cost relegation? I don't think so! So unless we start picking up points and winning soon then he will be in an untenable position.

13 Jan 2022 12:34:00
Bm you are correct with everything you say mate, and I will keep saying it. Benitez is not a great manager. He is living on a past reputation that ne longer stands up in the Premier league.
Going the match use to be fun, few beers and a bit of banter and the hope your team would win. Now you have a few beers before the game to get you through the rubbish you have to watch on the pitch.
And it's not all down to the players. I am sick of reading how bad our players are. Well their not, we have a lot of quality in the squad, certainly enough to see off the likes of Brentford.
But we set up to fail, we are so bloody negative it's embarrassing.

13 Jan 2022 14:41:21
Great post brassington blue I go games atmosphere is awful some down to benitez but been like for long time. I also go some Tranmere games when we don't clash with them or if we're away there at home. As I just like to watch football live but there ground is so much louder then we are. Away support at goodison this year has been terrible aswell so quiet dunno if just premier League thing to be honest as seen away fans Tranmere who had only couple hundred be louder then most premier League teams including Liverpool who were so quiet expect when they setting flares off.

13 Jan 2022 17:00:31
Now that some of the injured players are on their way back, I expect us to move up the table and start getting better results. We started the season off well when we had the majority of our 1st team available. Possibly another face or two to bolster the squad in this window. It's been a rough few months but it will get better. Hopefully ?.

{Ed025's Note - i hope your right BP mate..

13 Jan 2022 17:14:52
Rafa will play him centre back anyway.

13 Jan 2022 17:34:06
I agree with you BP.

12 Jan 2022 22:51:11
Digne confirming what we knew already - he’s been forced out of the club he loves by ‘an outsider’. Good luck to the lad, seems like he had little choice. What has happened to our great club?

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Jan 2022 23:18:16
Where is this news from?

12 Jan 2022 23:24:25
Thank you for 3 1/ 2 years in Blue ?
From Day One the Evertonians have received me with a lot of warm feelings, and I am forever thankful for that.
I have loved to be a part of the Everton family.
I have always worked hard to give back to the fans on and off the pitch.
I have loved the unity of fans and players.
Not only Goodison on a match day but also in everyday life.

Only one year ago I signed a new contract with the ambition of staying in this club for a long time, giving everything for my club, for the development and project, that I believed in - and for the passionate fans.
My dream was helping the club back where it belongs. 
Wearing the captain’s armband in some matches always made me proud.

Everything must come to an end.
I just did not expect it to end this way.

What has happened and some things that was said about me in the last month has made me very sad.
But I will not enter a war on words with anyone.

The club don’t deserve that, the fans don’t deserve that - and to be honest, I don’t feel that I deserve that.
There are so many good and decent people in and around Everton who want to the best for this club and not only for themself - and to them i can only say from my heart: I wish you the best!

Thank you, to all you wonderful, proud and passionate true Evertonians. 
It has been a an honour and a true pleasure to play for you, the fans, the people - because a club do not belong to a player or a manager, but to the fans. 
I will always carry you with me in my heart wherever I go.
Sometimes it only takes one person from outside to destroy a beautiful love affair.
All the best to @everton and Evertonians ?.

12 Jan 2022 23:39:08
Exactly what I said earlier 'jumped or pushed'. Having now read up on Rafa recent outings, seems to be his modus operandi along with everyone elses fault except mine rhetoric. Getting a bit worried now
games in hand 100 percent need to be capitalised.

13 Jan 2022 01:54:23
One of the few genuine world class players we’ve had over the last decade. What a shame.

12 Jan 2022 23:44:09
So what do we think of this Ed, doesn't read like a lad that wanted out!

{Ed025's Note - its a good parting shot by lucas DFS, its only one side of the story of course and i doubt we will get rafa,s side anytime soon so i really dont know who is to blame...answers on a postcard..

13 Jan 2022 07:14:40
Disgusting it's going to take 10years to recover from this season and the fallout.

{Ed025's Note - dont get embroiled in a one sided argument and a twitter feed cookie, we dont know the full story and probably never will mate..

13 Jan 2022 07:57:37
I have always been for Rafa Ed, based on his tactical reputation mainly. As the days go on though, it seems we are dealing with a person that denies all personal responsibility for footballing failure but accepts for success. Even taking into account injuries, some of his decisions have been baffling! (Bad enough watching on TV but even more so in the ground) . Away at Norwich is crucial for me, a win essential, a draw let's hear the excuses, a loss, there are none.

{Ed025's Note - im on the fence DFS but it is what it is, as you say the norwich and then the newcastle games are crucial, we need 4 points from these games but im not holding my breath mate..

13 Jan 2022 07:58:49
It's Rafa. Wherever he has been he has caused problems with players. even at Liverpool! Just get the impression that if you disagree with him, that's it, you're off . Alonso fell out with him at Liverpool and left. I do worry about Richarlison for this reason!

13 Jan 2022 08:29:40
I was happy 2 give Rafa a chance but after the Brighton game I want him gone and that’s not just me I large section of where I sit feel the same he is a disease that needs cutting out doubt he will ever b accepted it’s like he pulls balls out of a hat when picking the team.

13 Jan 2022 10:19:31
Common thread is what has come out from the club on social media. Over years plentiful of messages supported the managers from playing staff. The clubs PR machine was quick to fill us with these articles about how players love Ancelotti, Allyardce, Koemans and Martinez. This has dried up. I suspect no one is happy and all are looking at there options.

13 Jan 2022 10:41:33
Bye Digne ? ????.

13 Jan 2022 12:37:17
Sell one of the best left backs in the Prem, and bring in someone you have never heard of from a crap league. But hey he's young so that's ok.

13 Jan 2022 12:46:31
Whichever side you believe, whether Digne was sulking, not trying, wanted out, etc or whether he was forced out because the boss didn't like him, surely it is a managers job to. "manage" the situation so it doesn't get out of hand and blow up in his face like this?

13 Jan 2022 15:35:02
25 million (in these times) for a left back that’s been poor for a long time now is great business.

13 Jan 2022 17:05:47
If he loved the fans and club as much as he professed in his parting statement, then why didn't he stay and fight for his place? The managers job is far from stable, he could have just bided his time.

13 Jan 2022 17:15:50
Probably didn’t fancy waiting 2 seasons for Rafa to be sacked before he played again.

13 Jan 2022 17:36:00
Quote a low bar if you think he world class.

Quality player don't get me wrong but he's no Ashley Cole, Robertson, Carlos.

He can't get in the French team ahead of theo hernandez of Milan.

The path ahead just got even rockier with this Instagram post.

I'm not siding with either party in this argument but the manager makes the decisions and he'll live or die by his action.

I'm all for giving him at least til the end of the season to see if results improve but I feel lots of fans already going to force him out for a banner on a plane.

14 Jan 2022 15:13:58
You mean he is no Leighton Baines GeofJohno ?.

12 Jan 2022 18:45:26
Pictures released of Bramley Moore does that mean Digne sale about to be announced or someone else is close to going.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Jan 2022 12:38:53
Yea shoved some concrete pillars up to make it look like they are building something. ?.

13 Jan 2022 13:02:38
Concrete pillar is more mobile than Rondon, stick that up front.

12 Jan 2022 17:38:22
Loan move for El Ghazi imminent.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Jan 2022 20:00:02
How exciting.

12 Jan 2022 20:18:49
Who were you expecting mate, Salah for goodness sake get real.

12 Jan 2022 23:40:12
What position does he play?

13 Jan 2022 01:54:45
Yes because it’s either El Ghazi or Salah, the only 2 players in the world.

13 Jan 2022 07:10:07
Looks like we're gona have to get used being a bottom half of the table team.

12 Jan 2022 16:32:10
Good news for a change DCL, Ricky and Mina back in training.

Agree6 Disagree0

12 Jan 2022 11:06:45
TalkSPORT that villa are reporting a deal for Digne is agreed for around £25million.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Jan 2022 12:05:12
Well that more or less pays for the two full backs.

12 Jan 2022 15:02:56
El Ghazi would be a loan deal till the end of the season according to the Liverpool echo on line site with the medical planned so looks like that’s happening. Also in the echo Delle Ali being linked possibly towards the end of the window . I guess that Tosun etc need to go and there may be other targets such as David Neres, and the Russian midfielder at Lille I think Golovin (spelling) , before Ali becomes an option. Eds have you got any fresh info on the situation please.

{Ed025's Note - its all ifs and buts at the moment Big C, one door opening allowing players to move in various directions mate, there will be lots of twists and turns in the next couple of weeks i feel..

12 Jan 2022 17:14:00
A loan for the Villa winger seems like a good non committal way to boost the squad. And if we can score a similar loan for Ali, I'd welcome his obvious talent to our midfield. Still only 25 and has the potential to reignite his career. Considering he was unplayable until Jose killed the lad, i think he'd definitely improve us. And way better than Barkley.

12 Jan 2022 18:29:24
Take both ElGhazi and Ali on loan. If Digne wanted to go then fine.

13 Jan 2022 22:52:43
I'd love Ali on loan think he'd make huge waves for us. We need a centre half and a playmaker and a back up for DCL knowing our luck he gets injured again.
