Morning Eds. I know we have been linked with several incomings over the last few weeks but it all seems to have gone quiet regarding outgoings… do you know if Holgate, Gomes and Gbamin are all set to go? Any chance Maupay and Alli might be shipped out also?


{Ed002's Note - Mason Holgate (CB) Leeds may offer an option. Perhaps Sheffield United. Southampton will make an intruiging offer to him to take on the role of captain. Everton want him moved on.
Andre Gomes (CM) Will return from his loan at Lille and then a decision will be made. Lille may be open to making an offer. Wasserman will be looking for other options and are trying to gain interest from the Middle East.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin (DM) Agent has made clear his future is away from Everton who may get a low offer from Turkey for him. Agent keen on a move to the Middle East. Everton happy to see him gone.
Dele Alli (CM/AM) It continues to go horribly wrong and I understand Everton want the entire distraction of Dele Alli away from the club on a permanent basis. He should be at his peak value yet he is worth little to Everton if they want to sell - and finding a buyer will be near impossible. The loan to Besiktas did not well and they did not take up their option to buy. A loan seems the best way to get at least the bulk of his wages off the books - but the PL seems unlikely to offer options. Everton could look to release him but will not want to pay up his contract - so some negotiation is required - particularly with Spurs if Everton want to avoid an issue with the PL.
Neal Maupay (S) Everton wanted to upgrade with Gyokeres but missed that boat. For now unless perhaps a move hom to France is possible, he stays.

1.) 22 Aug 2023 12:28:45
Thanks for the info Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 22 Aug 2023 12:31:11
Hopefully he'll go to Leeds if they offer an option, might help the gnonto deal to progress so we can draw a line under the whole thing.

3.) 22 Aug 2023 13:35:04
Offer Leeds Gbamin, Holgate and Maupay towards Gnonto. Or Holgate to Southampton as a Adams sweetener. Any interest in the Southampton winger we were linked with Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Danjuma?}

4.) 22 Aug 2023 15:33:22
Do you mean Sulemana dentielad? I'd take him all day long.

5.) 22 Aug 2023 16:29:05
Yes Mocker, that's him lol.

6.) 22 Aug 2023 16:28:49
No Ed002 the lad who begins with an 'S' sule something or other.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about Sulemana - I certainly would not hold your breath.}

7.) 22 Aug 2023 18:23:23
OK Ed002, cheers.



16 Jun 2023 22:47:48
Evening Eds. Is it possible to outline the deal we have for Ali again? Isn’t there something to do with us forking out money to Spurs after x amount of games?

Do you see Everton resolving this situation we find ourselves in (having him on our books and not playing) or will he be with us until 202X?


{Ed002's Note - The club need to resolve it by striking a deal with the player and Spurs. They do have a deal based on appearances but there are other caveats as well.}

1.) 17 Jun 2023 09:37:53
Thank you Ed002. Not looking for anymore info on this. As supporters we only get to hear bits and pieces of deals. This has to be the most complicated yet the most humorous deal I have ever come across. He is at the club 18 months with only a year left on his contract yet the finer details still have to be ironed out. Its laughable.

2.) 17 Jun 2023 13:51:02
ED002 I don't understand what these other caveats are that mean there are no circumstances that can occur whereby we won't end up having to pay Spurs money. You keep saying that we need to come to an agreement with Spurs over this which indicates that which indicates that you are saying if after his contract ends we haven't paid spurs any money we have somehow broken the terms of the agreement

What Caveat is there in the contract that means regardless of whether he plays or not we owe Spurs Money?

I know the deal could eventually rise to 40 million and I know that one of the stipulations is that we owe spurs 10 million when he plays 20 games. Are you suggesting that the deal we signed with spurs stated he must play at least 20 games regardless of whether he deserves to on merit because he doesn't deserve a place in the team ahead of other players at Everton based on what he has offered so far

I could understand if he warranted a place in the team and we deliberately didn't pick him to avoid paying 10 million but he is a waste of a place at the moment and picking him would make the team weaker.

{Ed002's Note - I am not implying anything about games but Everton will incur costs if he is sold due to the conditions of the contract.}

3.) 17 Jun 2023 14:39:42
No one is buying Dele Ali Ed. He has become a joke of a footballer and is going to be stuck with us until his contract ends and then he is a free agent.

If he is not able to get into the first team between now and when his contract ends presumably then we won't owe Spurs anything and he will just have been a big expensive wage ridden bad experience.

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen I am afraid.}

4.) 17 Jun 2023 16:00:34
Ed you are like a riddle wrapped in an enigma soaked in a conundrum.
Help us out here. Providing he never plays for us again because he doesn't get picked next season due to not being good enough. Then his contract expires and he leaves the club on a free transfer. What, per terms of the original agreement with Spurs, is the amount we would have to give them?

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen as I have explained - that would effectively be constructiove dismissal.}

5.) 17 Jun 2023 16:33:48
Wow. That means Jean Pierre Gbamin can sue us for constructive dismissal as we haven't been picking him and sent him on loan. Please don't let him know ED.

{Ed002's Note - Idiot.}

6.) 17 Jun 2023 17:10:10
Obviously we couldn't just get him for free and sell him on for a profit. There will be an agreement on money owed to spurs if we sell him.

{Ed002's Note - Yes there is. Hence the need to strike a deal with the player and Spurs.}

7.) 17 Jun 2023 19:00:58
Let's take the 10 packet of crisps we will get for him and give all of them straight to Spurs. If we can afford to throw a bag in ourselves to sweeten the deal for Leavy, do that too.

Hell of a risk to pay him £100,000 a week. Can he turn so much around so quickly? Take them 10 packets before they reduce it to 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

8.) 17 Jun 2023 19:22:17
I think our days of even getting one bag of crisps for him has long since gone. No premier league club will even sign him on a free once he has left us.

9.) 17 Jun 2023 21:45:04
That's it sheedysleeg. Looks like we are stuck paying his wages. Very much looks like Dyche is going to assess him during pre-season. He has no choice it seems. Last thing we need is Alli making the headlines in the rags all of next season.

Unless we buy him out of the contract. Can we afford to or can we afford not to?



20 Mar 2023 06:13:54
Morning Eds - any legs in the rumour we are after Antonio from West Ham in the Summer?

Thought we’ve had our fair share of last chance big pay check players….


{Ed002's Note - Michael Antonio (S) West Ham have repeatedly failed in their recruitment of players in recent years and this summer could make a 33 year Michael Antonio available. I am not aware of any approach from Everton.}

1.) 20 Mar 2023 08:24:15
BBC red button?

2.) 21 Mar 2023 06:20:17
Correct Glory Days. I can only hope that someone is having a laugh.



26 Aug 2022 22:20:51
Evening Eds. Hopefully two simple questions about undisclosed fees for players: why do clubs not declare the fee and can’t this be worked out in the future once the finances are submitted? I was just curious as the reasons why.


{Ed002's Note - All transfer fees and costs are recorded to the TMS - clubs don't want discussions with journalists and the like so they don't mention them publically.}

1.) 27 Aug 2022 07:16:25
So although it says undisclosed, can journalists access the TMS?

{Ed002's Note - A few.}

2.) 27 Aug 2022 08:18:39
So not in the public domain.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 27 Aug 2022 10:09:18
What was the figure we paid for Maupay please Ed?

{Ed002's Note - It is not yet confirmed.}



22 Aug 2022 21:31:58
Ed25 - you mentioned that if we sold Gordon then we would probably look at a higher quality striker. Who do you think we could get in? Would you still see us getting a second striker in like Maupay or Adams?


{Ed025's Note - it’s hard to guess at this stage BR. It would depend on other clubs bringing in a replacement for whoever was coming to us. But I’m not ruling out us getting 2 strikers in mate..

1.) 22 Aug 2022 22:05:26
If Gordon does go head what do you think the end of our window will look like?

2.) 23 Aug 2022 05:43:41

3.) 23 Aug 2022 06:51:45
We knew about DCL from the start of the season and here we are game week 4 still without a striker 9 days left before the transfer window closes let’s hope we get one soon.

4.) 23 Aug 2022 08:58:10
Standard Everton PB. But according to ed we had Maupay lined up but now with Gordon money are probably looking for someone better. I'd have still gone ahead with Maupay regardless and still tried for another with the Gordon money. We definitely need 2. Rondon is rondon and dcl is hit and miss when he plays and injured far to often.

Sky reported Chelsea will offer up to 60mill for Gordon. Some serious money that.

Not sure how they would know though, I doubt the Chelsea negotiators are telling jurnos their max prices for players.

5.) 23 Aug 2022 09:16:06
News nows gone mad. Spuds 50m offer on way. Chel up to 60m offer. And Coleman to start against Fleetwood. Its an odd assembly of headlines. Smirks aside that sounds like it's heating up for Gordon. We really probably want a mini bidding war and I'm sure Newcastle may get involved so who knows what deal will be struck. So long as we get 72 hours to spend it. Can't be left in a Lukaku last minute deal situation again as we're still feeling that co9k up. Also Gordon's going to want London right? And after deleting all Everton links from his social media (whatever that's meant to mean) Chelsea have 1 or 2 players we'd like in return right? They must be the final destination. T - minus 9 and its getting bonkers already. Going to seismic posters, proper evolution.

{Ed002's Note - "Newsnow" is a news aggressor, it simply takes news from numerous sources.}

6.) 23 Aug 2022 10:33:46
I like that 02 "news aggressor" absolutely spot on.

With the Prem starting in under two weeks, who do you think will be joining us down towards the bottom for a relegation scrap?

I think it’ll be us, Luton, Forest, Sheffield Utd, Palace and Wolves.

Hope we are not in the bottom three of these by the end of the season.


{Ed025's Note - a bit presumptuous of you there BR, i think we should see who we bring in and how we start before we judge them mate..

1.) 31 Jul 2023 20:53:16
I think well be fine. luton shwff utd to go down. abd the last place i think will be a fight between wolves forest bournemouth burnley.

2.) 31 Jul 2023 20:57:25
I don't think we will be in a relegation scrap this time around.

3.) 31 Jul 2023 21:05:43
Whilst I don’t expect much this season, I do think a pre-season under Dyche will have them far fitter and better organised than we have been for a few years. Lower mid-table is my expectation, which will do fine for me after two years of heart palpitations.

4.) 31 Jul 2023 21:22:15
I think it all depends on sick notes playing time.

5.) 31 Jul 2023 22:15:48
I gave up on him two years ago FatChris. I as never the world beater people made him out to be when he was fit anyway. Granted he’s the best we’ve got, but given Maupay is the comparison….

6.) 01 Aug 2023 09:28:12
With the squad we currently have we will struggle, especially once injuries and suspensions begin to bite

Dyche is a good manager but he proved at Burnley in his last year he can't pull rabbits out of hats every year and, at the moment, we have a side/ squad probably as weak as Burnley was

He needs help and the board (whoever that is) needs to step up and provide it with signings, not talk about how hard they are trying because, they are being beaten to the punch by every other side at the moment.



22 Jun 2023 06:18:17
Given Saudi Arabia are buying up a fair few players at the end of their careers, what are the chances Gomes, Ali and the like might head that way?

Would it be down to their agents trying to find a club for them?

There are some real bargains to be had at Goodison - lots of premier league players who are past their best. Should we send a delegation? Maybe this is where Bill has headed?


{Ed025's Note - it looks like Gomes will be going to Celta Vigo and Alli will be staying with us BR, if bill wants to go to Saudi i will carry him there on my back mate..



17 May 2023 22:24:53
Just a thought…

If we stay up, would it be worth looking at Akpom from Boro? He knows where the net is and Boro will be in the Championship next season after losing to Coventry.

In the same way, would it be worth looking at Morris or Gyökeres depending on who loses the playoff final?

I’m guessing we will have another shoestring budget so can’t see us spending big on anyone and we need people who know how to put the ball in the net.


1.) 18 May 2023 08:29:36
What's wrong with Simms he was comparable to all of them while on loan? There is no guarantee that any of the above mentioned would be any better paying as a sole striker. Should we not be looking for a wide player on the right to provide quality chances as a priority? with our limited budget we need to be smart with the funds we do have. Hopefully we will be able to move some players on and get a bit of cash but I can't see any big fee transfers coming in unless the owner decides to write off Everton's debt to him which would easy our P&S issues.

2.) 18 May 2023 09:58:22
Gyokeres all day long. Good worker and goalscorer. Akpom plays just behind striker, but he is having a goid season. But it's his 1st good season in a few. Would look at Andy Scott from Bristol City too. Attacking midfielder who is highly thought of. I'd still like to see Cannon force his way into the team next season. Same with Branthwaite, Nkoukou and Warrington.

3.) 18 May 2023 18:54:09
Think we have to prioritise someone who can play up front and put the ball in the net sa. No point in wingers if they are crossing to no one or Maupay….



13 May 2023 14:52:13
Shame Newcastle couldn’t pop Leeds. A point against City would make my weekend a lot better….


1.) 13 May 2023 15:03:36
3 would be even better mate.

2.) 13 May 2023 15:35:23
Especially seeing as Forest are winning….

3.) 13 May 2023 15:59:30
How is lampard still in a job? He's absolutely garbage.

6.) 13 May 2023 20:42:38
Frank lampard still trying his hardest to get us related.



27 Apr 2023 21:58:26
Let’s face it: we’re heading for the championship.

My question is what is it going to do to the club?
Will we end up bankrupt?
Will we rebuild and come back up?
Will we languish in the lower leagues for a few decades?


{Ed025's Note - probably all 3 BR..

At one stage I remember that he was touted as the new Stones but better…

Can only hope he hasn’t long left on his contract and we can loan him out again next season. Maybe to somewhere in Europe.

No chance. He isn’t up to Prem standard. He’d only play cup games against much lower league sides so I’d rather we played some of the youth in those games for experience. If we crash out the cup, who cares as long as we stay up and can rebuild the squad with a new stadium and (with that) better finances.

He’s in the last year of his contract DPP - he has to sign a new one on less wages or let him go for a decent amount so we can get a replacement in.

On 120k a week apparently - I’d sell him if we can and get in someone on half the amount who can bring some creativity to the side.

I’d not risk DLC or Beto against Villa and give Chermiti a run out with Danjuma. It’s a game to nothing in my opinion. Keep DCL and Beto for the Luton and Bournemouth games - if we could get 6 points there, we could have the making of a mid table team this season!

A draw would be great - a win would be a real boost for the team. Sadly, I’m expecting a loss.
