I think next season we can realistically aim for top four. Just hope we do well in the play-offs 🤣.

One of the best transfers we have done in my eyes is Digne. He is our best player imo. Replacing such a great like Baines is very difficult but he has smashed it. The fee looks tiny in comparison to his value to the team. He is an absolutely incredible player and wouldn't look out of place at City for me. What a signing that was. He puts in a graft, looks passionate, very good defensively, technically excellent, a set piece specialist and a serious attacking threat down the left side. The PERFECT Baines replacement. I love him.

I don’t think you’ll get many fans disagreeing with that one Blue-tit. Quite sure we’ll be adding Delph to that list after a run of games as well. I still can’t believe he cost us under 10 million. I seriously don’t want to jinx anything but I can honestly see a comfortable win for us on Sunday with Wolves just starting they’re second season syndrome.
COYB.

{Ed025's Note - they also have europa to deal with as well peter so i think we have a decent chance for a victory mate..


2.) 29 Aug 2019 16:25:28
I know the press love the kopites and rave about Robertson but Luca is the best left back in the league by a mile. He is a joy to watch. No doubt people will be after him but he’s played at barca, Roma, PSG and just wants to play football. Hopefully marcel has got a big fat new contract ready for him.


3.) 29 Aug 2019 21:30:03
I think Digne WOULD look out of place at City
. our shirt on him would stand out like a sore thumb! 🤣.


4.) 30 Aug 2019 10:01:54
His attacking threat is what makes him the best in the league. Robertson doesn’t do enough going forward.
I still think Digne can improve his defensive side and gives away some cheap free kicks in our defensive third. That is being hypercritical to a top player though.


5.) 30 Aug 2019 17:28:42
I rate Digne highly but I think to be the best he needs to do more of what he did for Richarlisons goal on Wednesday - which is get the ball in early. As much as I hate to say it, that is what makes the Reds fullbacks so effective, but is really just down to better coaching rather than them being better players.

{Ed025's Note - i think he crosses just as good as robertson EFCONE, and his free kicks are better than both of them mate..


6.) 30 Aug 2019 17:45:26
The way the rubbish play means Robertson and Arnold can bomb down the wings all day long because they have Henderson, Fabininho and the other guy I can’t spell all sitting.

{Ed025's Note - wijnaldum albo, none of them are creative but defensively they are a very strong unit mate..


7.) 30 Aug 2019 22:19:35
First name in my dream team.


8.) 31 Aug 2019 11:50:42
Diane's crosses don't get as much credit because of his lack of assists. But considering he was crossing to DCL last season and Robertson was crossing to 3 world class forwards, that's where stats are deceiving. Digne is also a better defender with better link up play than Robertson.


9.) 31 Aug 2019 13:08:50
Robertson is an absolutely cracking player but he has world class players around him. Defensively he has Van Dijk and offensively on his side he has Mane, the midfield are a solid unit and he has Salah and Firmino to aim for. He is in the perfect circumstances to flourish. I think Digne would be just as good or better if he played for the reds than Robertson.

{Ed001's Note - I think you are missing the fact that they are completely different players and Robertson is perfectly suited to Liverpool's style of play while Digne isn't. Digne is an excellent player but he would not be as good in Liverpool's style as Robertson and vice versa with Robertson. They are both in a team that emphasises their strengths and mitigates their weaknesses. Neither would work as well if you swapped them, it simply doesn't work like that.}


10.) 31 Aug 2019 20:01:14
Fair enough Ed. My point is (the remains on the carcus haha) is that Digne would perform at a higher level with better quality players around them. I am aware that the style of play would be affected. Digne to me looks a class higher than the other Everton players.

{Ed001's Note - I agree.}

Iwobi reportedly on his way to Everton. Presumably we have handed in a transfer sheet to get another 2 hours. 😟😭.

This game against Cardiff is our most important. If we lose this we are completely snookered. We shouldn't just scrape a win imo either we should win comfortably.

Blue-tit

1.) 25 Feb 2019 11:42:52
wins a win mate. beggars can't be choosers way we're playing.


2.) 25 Feb 2019 15:42:39
We’re mid table. We haven’t earned comfortable wins. But we have had 2 weeks rest and therefore have a massive fitness advantage over a team that played last Friday.

{Ed025's Note - you would think so ace, but this is everton we are talking about mate so i will reserve my judgement until after the game i think..


3.) 25 Feb 2019 16:37:01
Well I’ll be at the game Ed, so I will be looking to see if we have an advantage over them come the last 15 minutes with fitness. Although by then I will be hoping we’re not chasing the game.

{Ed025's Note - have a great time ace and bring us some luck..


4.) 25 Feb 2019 17:25:42
I see nothing but a win tomorrow. Trust me :-)


5.) 25 Feb 2019 23:23:34
I really think MS is 2 losses away from the sack so is a must win.


6.) 26 Feb 2019 10:52:34
I think a loss against Cardiff might do it. Maybe not right away but I think it may prevent him from having another go next season.

{Ed025's Note - lets hope that does,nt happen tit because we really need to get something from tonight mate..


7.) 27 Feb 2019 17:15:49
Passed with flying colours ed025 :)

{Ed025's Note - we certainly did tit, we are a side in form mate.. :)


 

 

29 Jan 2019 15:43:39
Idrissa Gueye. Right, I think he does deserve a dream move as he has been a solid servant and put everything in every time. BUT, now is not the time. It could be disastrous if we let him go now. I feel for Gueye but he is signed to the club and the club is more important. If it was summer, or we were in a much better place I would say yes, good luck you deserve it. I don't think he should expect the club to sanction the move; your under contract so do your job till the end of the season. If they are not going to wait then that is unfortunate but not our problem giving the circumstances.

Blue-tit

1.) 29 Jan 2019 16:51:55
If Jimmy Mc is fit no problem, better midfielder for me than Gueye.


2.) 29 Jan 2019 17:44:57
'IF' being the operative word. Can't rely on him at all, never mind in this situation that we are in. Gueye must stay.


3.) 29 Jan 2019 17:59:39
Game of opinions mate.


4.) 29 Jan 2019 18:09:26
Jimmy Mc being better than Gana is laughable. Gana can't pass or shoot but he's probably the best tackling and intercepting midfielder in the PL. That said, I'd let some combo of Jimmy Mc, Beni, and Gomes play the role and give Gana his dream transfer. He deserves his shot at playing for silverware and he may not get another chance; he's 29 and this is the first time the big boys have come calling. If we can get £30+M, I'd do him the courtesy and take it. If we can get Meunier in some sort of swap, I'd snap Tuchel's hand off. We can find a replacement for Gana in the summer and figure out if what we have is any good in the meantime.


5.) 29 Jan 2019 18:59:35
Interesting Gueye nowhere near the First Team tonight, maybe our manager sees it different mate, hmmm.


6.) 29 Jan 2019 19:23:03
We have Gomes, Tom, Beni, and Jimmy Mc if Gueye doesn't want to play for us then let him go.


7.) 29 Jan 2019 20:37:37
Gueye put in a transfer request last night according to game commentators.


8.) 29 Jan 2019 22:34:44
If he wants to go and brands doesn't mind him going then at least make them pay a January price of 35 million.


9.) 30 Jan 2019 08:43:38
Gueye has already had his dream move from Villa to Everton.

What a crackpot board, we are screwed. The people high up making the decisions haven't got a clue. We are such a poorly run club it's ridiculous. Martinez? Really?! Jesus Christ. They don't seem to learn but just get worse. I'm usually a positive poster but there is not even a dim light at the end of this tunnel because we are buried in a ditch with nothing but spades to get us out.

Blue-tit

1.) 17 Jan 2022 22:13:56
“What a manager” “what a manager” “what a manager”

We know who to thank for Martinez even being mentioned.

But we can’t say his name, rumour has it; every time you say his name, he becomes even more of a “proper Evertonian” and a “true blue”.


2.) 17 Jan 2022 22:56:15

12 Jan 2022 08:52:21
I hope the El Ghazi rumours are not true. Not the calibre or type of player we need. More importantly, it is not the position that we need to strengthen considering much bigger glaring holes exist elsewhere in the squad. Allan is rumoured to be leaving which leaves us with 1 good midfielder in Doucoure. Gomes is unreliable, wildly inconsistent and lightweight. Gbamin is untested and massively injury prone. Davies needs a loan and simply isn't good enough at the moment. Delph hasn't had any impact to the sqaud just the wage bill. Therefore we have one good central midfielder. Spending a supposed 15m on a winger is not advisable in my advise as we need to utilise the money spent as good as possible. We have Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Townsend, Gray and the young lads Dobbin and Simms. We also need to axe, at the very least a defender, preferably 2 and improve on central defense. Spending money on a winger at this point in time would be crazy to me. We have our best players in attack and a couple of good kids along with 2 really good shrewd transfers. Midfield is priority and then defense. Huge priorities.

Blue-tit

{Ed025's Note - i totally agree blue tit..


1.) 12 Jan 2022 13:51:11
Agree BT but unfortunately Benitez doesn't.
Maybe at the end of the season when we have been relegated, Benitez will come out and say I bought El kazi to make sure you all went down the sh***er. Ah revenge is sweet.
Then he will take his bonus from that lot over the road and be back on the Kop laughing at us.


 

 

09 Jan 2022 08:38:34
When we have all of our attacking options available, I think we are actually strong there. It is everywhere else which is a mess, apart from Pickford. Gray and Townsend have been great transfers they really have. Gray offers much needed pace and trickery and Townsend has that direct mindset in trying to score or cross the ball in. Gordon has been one of the best players this season and is becoming very important to the team. Add in a fully fit and firing DCL and Richarlison and they are great attack options. Plus we should utilise Dobbin and Simms more who look good prospects. We have rolled the dice at improving our full back let's hope it works. Now we need to drastically improve central midfield and central defense. Our midfield is shocking and central defenders on par.

Blue-tit

1.) 09 Jan 2022 20:45:23
Agree with that blue tit. Especially regarding Central defense. Only stand out is mina and let's be honest he's not world class, Keane, holgate both absolutely garbage. Thought allan was poor against Brighton, other options central midfield are limited in gbamin, davies. so only really leaves dacoure.
Pleased with the full backs we have bought but agree its centrally where we are really weak. Would love someone with the quality of bissouma.


 

 

09 Jan 2022 08:32:10
That should be the very last time that we see Rondon in an Everton shirt on grass. He is useless. Yes he does try so this isn't personal or even directly aimed at him but instead aimed at Benitez. Why does he insist on playing him? We have young attackers in Dobbin and Simms that have been denied an opportunity to play for what? For Rondon? Tosun, *high pitched* even Tosun did more in way way less time. Rafa seems stuck in his, he either doesn't see certain things don't work or refuses to accept them in hope that they will change. It is evident that he is nowhere near good enough.

The formation. Jesus Christ please don't use that formation ever again. It doesn't work. The players clearly are not comfortable using it. We are so defensively frail when using it and get dominated in midfield by midfielders who are not of the highest quality. It's been disgraceful to be honest.

Hopefully we will never see Rondon or that formation again.

Blue-tit

1.) 09 Jan 2022 08:48:14
I have to agree totally. Rondon is a complete liability, just looks completely out of his depth on a football field. As you say, not his fault, clearly RB playing a player he brought to the club when he has young talent to pick from.
Not sure we were trying to play 5 at the back, or we just got too overpowered in the first 15 minutes we were unable to shape the team correctly. Either way it was a disaster, complete car crash.
I was one of those who accepted RB as being the best out there at a time that CA dumped on us and still believe he needs to see the season out as a minimum. Changing again, and for who, would definitely be a mistake while we’re in a relegation fight. COYB.


2.) 09 Jan 2022 10:42:38
It won’t be though will it?.


3.) 09 Jan 2022 12:22:51
If he keeps insisting on on playing these tactics and choosing players like Rondon, he is better nowhere near the club. Not even serving the pies, he would be offering stale out of date pies instead of the new ones that have just came in.


 

 

04 Jan 2022 21:02:21
How good are the 2 signings. I don't have a clue. Any Ed's that have I formation on them or anyone else?

Blue-tit

{Ed025's Note - according to reports they are both good young talents BT, but they have been playing at a lower level and the prem is not easy, my concern would be who wanted them at everton?, if its benitez then hopefully they will be integrated pretty quickly but if not and they are for the future it will not help us much, but thats me being the eternal pessimist i suppose mate..


1.) 04 Jan 2022 22:21:41
Ed, I'm hoping it was rafa and he's starting to get the players he wants within the club. Young hungry players. as much as he brought rondon and townsend in. Gray is pretty young still and he did bring through some youngsters at geordies, longstaffs and others

We need these type of players rather than the iwobi, rondon and the like.

The only question mark is can they step up to the level of the prem and perform consistently .

{Ed025's Note - thats the $64,000 question geoff, i will be happy if these lads come in and are part of the current plans, but if they are seen as the long term future not so, we need players for NOW mate..


2.) 04 Jan 2022 22:34:56
Players for now has landed us with over aged, over paid squad of lazy mercenaries.

{Ed025's Note - but these are young guys who will be hungry and have not cost a lot chris, i just hope the plan is to use them now mate..


3.) 04 Jan 2022 22:45:39
It’s getting close to backs against the wall stuff so it might just force his hand… we can’t keep playing the same starting 11 and keep losing - something has to give, surely?


4.) 04 Jan 2022 22:55:28
I hope they are not the choice of Benitez but the product of prolonged and thorough scouting. These days, scouting is more important than managerial appointments in my opinion due to managerial reigns being very short. Don't get me wrong it is important to get some players that the manager wants tactically but that can leave you with a mess if you don't have a long serving manager. It has been in unbelievable how many transfers we have got so wrong.


5.) 05 Jan 2022 06:34:29
BT, I think that may be part of the problem. The scouting team got a list of players, the chairman bought them, possibly without the approval of the manager and we ended up with loads of number 10s and LW's.

I would hope this has been more of a collaboration between all parties who discussed a list of potential signings and agreed on.


6.) 05 Jan 2022 11:40:55
Ed would have to believe that with Coleman looking his age and Digne out the door, then these boys have to be seen as starters.
To be fair they only need to be able to tackle and make a pass to be an improvement.

{Ed025's Note - if they play i will be very happy brass but i still dont know who actually signed these guys mate..


7.) 05 Jan 2022 17:59:22
I still think Gray was a Brands buy and would expect these two are as well.

I’m putting Bergovic, Townsend and Rondon down to Rafa.

As for Iwobi… whoever is responsible for spending that amount should have a stern talking to!


8.) 05 Jan 2022 18:24:07
Haha just make up that Rafa brought in the old and brands the new to suit your anti Rafa agenda BR.

And yeah you're right Ed they need to be played now, even if they make mistakes. The same goes branthwaitte and Dobbin imo. I'd really like to see Onyango get some game time as well. We've all been calling out for the 3 in midfield. One thing I hate is that the mangers we've had in the past won't give them a go even though they play well when they come on. I don't understand why they get put on the bench with no intention of playing them. If I was a young player at Everton I'd have done the same as smalls.

{Ed025's Note - they have to play them chris, its obvious that the old guard are not up to the task mate so what have we got to lose?...but im not holding my breath..


9.) 05 Jan 2022 22:48:05
I’ve no Anti-Rafa agenda FatChris - I just truly believe we were in for Gray and Patterson before Rafa joined. The Ukrainian lad may be a Rafa buy but fits the mould we were supposed to be using. If Rafa gets us paying decent football and we compete in games, I’ll be happy as a pig in you know what.

I’m all up for blooding the young players as long as it doesn’t lead to another Keane or Bernard with shattered confidence (albeit they were older) . Hopefully, these new signings will hit the ground running and get some decent game time.

That, and we start picking up some points. Soon.

Rondon does try, it's not his fault. It's Benitez's fault for signing him and then insisting on playing him when it's obvious to anyone that he truly is dreadful as a footballer.

That was a back five. 3 centre cracks and 2 wing backs: back five. Add to that that that there are 5 defenders and that they played like defenders positional wise, it was a back 5. I don't have a clue where you are getting a 343 from mate.
