It's gone mental with reports Zaha is being negotiated.

Not sure how true this is and I don't think it's possible at all. Let's wait and see.

Palace have been mentioned as having interest in Walcott too. Our forward options would be exceptional if this were true - fear it may just be lazy journalism.

{Ed002's Note - Walcott is not going to CP.}


2.) 05 Oct 2020 12:34:40
Interesting you're not saying "Zaha is not going to Everton" Ed.


3.) 05 Oct 2020 13:01:52
I can take him or leave him. I'm more interested in a GK option than Zaha.

Apart from that Walcott looks like he may go, bolasie is the one being talked about going to CP and besic to rangers with Kean already gone.

That's some good business if it happens. Can't think of anything more we could have done.


4.) 05 Oct 2020 13:12:31
I really don't see Zaha link being true to not this late in the window!


5.) 05 Oct 2020 13:38:06
Zaha will be with Palace for the rest of his career now unless they get relegated.


6.) 05 Oct 2020 13:57:47
I can't either and not fussed about him at all. A few are reporting we are in for romero from untied now. I'd be very happy with that one though.

{Ed025's Note - he would be my choice john..


7.) 05 Oct 2020 14:28:18
Think Bolasie and Besic would both look good in a Palace shirt ;0)


8.) 05 Oct 2020 14:32:23
I don't see how Saha gets in our starting eleven at the moment. He's a good player but I'd rather any money be spent on a quality GK to compete with JP and some loan CF to give DCL a rest every 5/ 6 games and come on as impact. On a similar note, any whispers on Carlo thoughts on Tosun as he's not had a sniff or mention but with MK going out on loan, maybe this will change? Don't think he's injured and he can certainly finish if supplied.


9.) 05 Oct 2020 14:45:40
Shows how far we’ve come if that’s true. Realistically, one of our front three will either have a knock or need resting most weeks - Zaha would get plenty of game time. Also, James R can play the no.10 with 2 holding midfielders so all 4 could play. He would strengthen the squad, no doubt there. If we can get rid of 4/ 5 squad players, it’s not impossible.


10.) 05 Oct 2020 14:56:21
I agree corner. Tosun is another one who may do a decent job now we have better cohesion up front. We need to give these players a chance with the added quality we've already added.


11.) 05 Oct 2020 15:16:55
Tosun got a bad injury last season while on loan at Palace. He’s still injured as far as I know.


12.) 05 Oct 2020 15:39:55
Tosun out until new year I think, torn ACL.

Lampard has not improved his squad he bought a striker when they already have giroud abraham and batshaui he has mount and pulisic but then buys havertz and zyech so attack was not a priority its his defence and midflield that need reinforcing .

True Blue mate.


4.) 18 Dec 2019 06:33:01
No one is doubting his passion for the club but I’m not convinced he’s managerial material yet. In both Chelsea and Man Utd games we had around 30% possession and were fortunate not to concede more than one. We are still shaky at the back and not setting the world on fire (or even Goodison on fire) up front.

He’s been at the club since 2014 and it would be strange to not attribute some of the issues of the last few seasons with him. Have the last two results been part of the ‘new manager’ effect? He is a step in the right direction compared to Silva but that’s no real accolade to be fair.

It’d be great to see if he can win a few more games but I’m not sold that he is the man for the top job yet.


5.) 18 Dec 2019 08:05:54
He has been in charge for little over a week and has changed a team with no confidence to a team that don't stop fighting for each other. Picked up 4 points along the way with only 30% possession. He can only work with what he has and at the moment there are a few crucial injury problems as well.


6.) 18 Dec 2019 08:45:06
I'd love nothing more than one day dunc become our manager, would be boss! however not yet, also its called new manager bounce when someone comes in and has an immediate affect 8/ 10 it happens as the players get a kick up the arse.

{Ed025's Note - very much so wb..


7.) 18 Dec 2019 14:24:36
I would rather give up possession and get results when needed. One of the issues with Silva and Martinez is that they wanted possession and control all the time. That's why teams would just get back and defend solidly. Sometimes, you have to accept that the other team will have more of the ball. Results over style is important.

However I'm not saying play the SA way. I'm just saying against the bigger teams, we may need to play that way, especially when we are struggling.


8.) 18 Dec 2019 16:30:27
:the guy bleeds blue: Don't we all that's not credentials?


9.) 18 Dec 2019 19:43:45
Although he’s only been manager for a week, he has been working with these players for years as a coach.


10.) 18 Dec 2019 21:49:29
The whole argument of new manager bounce falls flat when you look at Arsenal.


11.) 19 Dec 2019 09:52:49
Tiffa, Some just cannot accept that DF has more to him than just being an avid Evertonian mate.


12.) 19 Dec 2019 10:46:13
thats why i said 8/ 10 mate.


13.) 20 Dec 2019 15:06:01
"Although he’s only been manager for a week, he has been working with these players for years as a coach" And that's when we went downhill.


14.) 20 Dec 2019 18:41:21
Sadly we went downhill after a long period of stability under moyes who took us as far as he could, Martinez, koeman, big sam and silva took us backwards to throw blame at dunc is daft, the players responded to him and put a shift in for him, he will have gained a lot from his caretaker stint, but is not quite ready yet.


15.) 21 Dec 2019 19:56:02
Agreed. Dunc has steadied the ship, restored pride and may even have helped convince Ancelotti that we're not a hopeless case. He's probably learnt loads over the last few weeks which will help him whether he goes elsewhere to be a manager or stays at Goodison to help out.

We saw the limits of 4-4-2 today as well, we looked flat and started passing sideways and were unable to link with the forwards or get decent crosses in. A poor Arsenal were able to get between the lines.

I'd like to see Niasse come on as sub rather than Tosun as well.


16.) 22 Dec 2019 22:53:44
carlo 4 year deal, i'd be happy with dunc then, he seems level headed and still willing to learn.


 

 

05 Oct 2019 23:39:38
A few weeks again against Sheff utd I saw Silva's reign end. He made rash substitutions and tactical changes. Today just confirmed it.

Those players on the pitch today let the manager down yes but they are letting each other down much more. And ofcourse the fans but I'm looking at this from a professional level first.

Delph and Schnids are either lazy or incompetent. Neither of them moved away from the middle of the park today. They didn't take any chances to get forward and as Silva pointed out, were not brave enough to try and make things happen.

Iwobi was full of running but there were so many times Digne was slow to support him. On the right the chemistry between Seamus and Ricky is none existent.

Upfront DCL is desperate for his no10 to help him. He makes himself available but he's knowhere to be seen. Ricky and Iwobi go looking for him but he's never there. He so individual now it's like he's just playing on his own.

In defense, the intensity of earlier on this season has gone and we've regressed which in set pieces means we are an easy target again.

As much as I want this team to be successful we need a new manager. EVERY player let us down today. EVERY single one of them.

The next manager needs to motivate these players and give them a simple plan. I pray to god we don't make the same mistakes of the past in getting someone like Sam. It has to be a long term vision but I don't hold out any hope they'll be given the right support again and we will simply be in this position in about 12 months time.

Unfortunately, I'll be telling my grandkids about how the city used to have two clubs.

1.) 06 Oct 2019 07:56:31
They are letting us fans down most of all mate.


2.) 06 Oct 2019 12:12:34
They are GB but what should come first to the players should be to each other.

If they play for the manager and each other they become a team. They'll work together to improve. Football is a team sport and no individual can do the role of everyone in it.

They must at all times work for each other.


3.) 06 Oct 2019 20:23:01
Very true John mate good post.


 

 

12 Nov 2018 19:03:18
What a difference the right people make to a football club.

Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman where such a disaster but I wonder who was more culpable.

Was it Koeman with his negative tactics in his second season. In his first he played attacking and fluid fast football that saw us have one of our best periods in the second half of that season that we've had in the EPL era.

Or was it Walsh with his purchase of three no10's and not one player to come in and replace the departing Lukaku.

Looking at the players Walsh brought in and the massive increase in quality of what Brands has brought in, with clear input from Silva (Richarlson), and the difference to what the right people can make to a football club is clear to see.

I honestly trust these two with the future of this club and do so more than anyone brought in over the last few years.

Long may this continue.

Most entertaining to watch: Tuchels Chelsea
Most boring to watch: West Brom no matter who manages them. Combine that with Fat Sam! Jesus!
Most frustrating: Newcastle. Stadium, fans but bloody awful owner, manager and players
Most disappointing: Liverpool without a doubt.
Most false dawns: Us and Spurs. Spurs more so with the talent in that squad.

Yesterday was terrible. Really bad game where we failed to take a strong foothold in the match at any point.

I genuinely feel the lack of a RB has cost us a place this season in the top 4. It's like we play with one arm tied behind our back. Holgate, is a half decent CB, not good enough to shift any of Keane, mina or Godfrey but decent back up. As RB, I have never seen anyone more lost at sea on what he has to do, with maybe the exception being Iwobi.

Holgate though constantly passes backwards instead of trying to run at the opposition or even attempt to pass the ball forward to the right winger/ forward player.

What doesn't make sense though is that we've needed one for 3 years and yet here we are still wondering why we haven't brought someone in.

Iwobi. What is he? It's completely pointless playing him. he's got pace and quick feet but he's rubbish scared of using either of them. Defenders usual hate players with those attributes but his brain hasn't got a clue with what to do with them.

We've still got things to fight for but top 4 isn't it. Maybe it's been that pressure. However, again we have an important summer where we need to finally fill that RB position, more of the dacoure/ Allan quality in the midfield and some genuine players who love playing with the football instead of 8 tacklers on the pitch.

Loads of positives this season. However, if we do want to fight it out with the big boys then we have to keep building with quality and fill those glaring holes.

BlueJohnUns

1.) 14 Mar 2021 13:58:20
I posted in January that I thought we’d end up regretting not signing a right back. We don’t yet have the squad to cope with injuries.


2.) 14 Mar 2021 18:25:31
Yeah I agree JB. losing dacoure as well plus having Digne and James out for periods have not done us any favours.


 

 

11 Feb 2021 09:31:56
Like most on here I thought Tom, Dacoure and Sig were very good. I've already said my piece on Tom hope people just let him carry on developing.

A few players who haven't had much of a mention though was our front two. DCL, until he came off, was having an outstanding match and his goal was technically superb. Everyone, has gone on about Loris but the way he had to angel his body to get the power in the shot and at height was difficult and believe the power in the shot meant Loris had little chance to save it.

Ricky put in his best performance of the season so far and he looked back to the happy Ricky we love. No frustration, no tantrums, just hard work for the team. We need him like that every game now. He was brilliant.

I thought the tactical change for the corners were weird and didn't work at all. I just think if Sig is facing the ball, he clears both of those goals. I can't even blame Olsen for them because we had Digne marking the flick-on instead of Mina or Keane and so the ball always travelled to the back post.

Anyway, let's keep this going, they'll be buzzing today. Remember Stay Cool blues and make sure you blow your coffee before drinking!

There's still a lot of debate on here over Tom Davies. What I think no-one really takes into consideration is his age. He's 22 years old. He is maturing not just in his football but also as a person. He won't be anywhere near his peak for another 4, 5 or 6 years. The position he plays in requires focus, patience and most of all experience.

If we'd have signed him at this age rather than bring him through the ranks we'd have thought we'd got a decent player who's only going to get better as he gets older.

He's made some progress this year and he'll be better again working with the likes of Allan for a couple of years. Let's give him some time now everything is not resting on his shoulders, as it has been for the past two years, and see how he goes.

BlueJohnUns

1.) 07 Feb 2021 18:13:56
Martinez saw something in him to make him captain, then we hit a manager merry-go-round, koeman, silva and he who should not be named all probably wanted different things from him, if Tom can kick on from that performance then we might see the player his early promise showed.


2.) 07 Feb 2021 18:34:10
Totally agree, Wolf. Hopefully, the manager turmoil is well and truly over and the lad can nail down a position and learn from one of the best managers in the game.


3.) 07 Feb 2021 18:36:17
Its up to him but he's got a great chance to really develop and kick on with this manager and calibre of players coming through the door.

I'm don't mind him losing the ball by making forward passes which is what he does. I hate players being caught in possession because that's just lazy play. The ball yesterday to DCL was perfect and shows what he can do further up the pitch. The rest hopefully will come soon enough.


4.) 07 Feb 2021 23:50:04
Obviously our Manager sees something in Davies otherwise he would not keep playing him would he? I would suggest that Carlo knows a little more about individual players talents, abilities and areas were they need to improve than supporters.


5.) 08 Feb 2021 10:09:02
I'd be very very happy to be proved wrong re Tom but one good game doesn't change my mind about the many games that he's given the ball away or made bad tackles.
Taking up BJU's point. If he was playing for another side would we all be shouting for Everton to sign him instead of other targets - I know I wouldn't
I was backing DCL when others were on his back because I saw something in him
I'm not convinced re Tom but please please let me be proved wrong.


6.) 08 Feb 2021 11:46:23
Bw2412 it's not one good game though bud he has done well in nearly every game he has been asked to play this season it's refreshing to see fans support him instead of getting on the kids back.


 

 

06 Feb 2021 23:36:43
Dacoure is the engine of this team. We need an understudy for him though. When he's out we are half a team.

Better from Davies. He did the simple things very well and for this has been his best season. The cautionary thing is though is that he need to maintain that form and build on it.

DCL is getting sharper. Good goal but I think he's a lucky boy. He should have already had one in the bag.

They will be buzzing now. Our record this season against the big boys has been brilliant.

Bring on Spurs!

BlueJohnUns

1.) 07 Feb 2021 09:08:34
Tom was excellent but sadly Allan will take that spot back when he returns. If Tom can show consistency then it’s a harder decision for Carlo to make. He has been more consistent of late but still not enough to make that role his.

DCL is for me amazing. Young and fresh, eager to learn. Cost us very little and will bag over 20 goals this season. Strong in the air, brave in the box and will only get better. In a nutshell we have a 20+ goal a season striker who is only going to get better and better.

What a future we have as a club with him in it.


2.) 07 Feb 2021 11:48:33
Toffee, Alan would make a good Captain. He reads the game well and can pick a pass as well as break up play. Problem is lack of pace to particularly get back into position if venturing forward. Having said that though, my ideal starting 11 (from present) would be. Olsen, Holgate, Keane, Mina, Godfrey. Alan, Doucoure. Rodrigues. King/ Iwobi, DCL, Richarlison.


3.) 07 Feb 2021 12:08:57
“Sadly Allan will take that spot back when he returns”
What a statement. Do you think Davies should stay in over Allan?

In my opinion Allan has been immense and has been sorely missed and walks back into the team.

Davies has one good game and everyone seems to have forgotten they were saying how poor he is/ was and we needed to get rid of him and he wasn’t up to our level.

Fair play he had a decent game last night, could possibly have done better for the Fernandes goal, but for me Allan head and shoulders above him currently.

We do seem to have a fickle bunch of fans.


4.) 07 Feb 2021 16:11:46
Just a figure of speech Dan. I’m all for the best player in first, and Allan is by for the best we have for protecting the back line.

I'm wondering whether DCL has a more worrying injury than first thought. Its mentioned as a loan deal which keeps costs down.

Don't really think we need to sign someone and spend big money. I'd rather us wait till summer and get the players we really want and need.

Can't believe we are so close to getting this done. This was the biggest hurdle in my eyes. The finance part is pretty much a given with the wealth we have and the Moshiri's best mate.

If he going to go back 5 then he will has to get a quicker right wingback who is much more attack minded and at least 3 players who are more comfortable and quicker on the ball in midfield, like what city have.

Personally I don't see Koulibaly being a target. There are much more pressing areas to address.

No-one should be using Gomes injury as a reason for poor performances. I love the fella but face facts, he is not good enough anymore. He's been back for over a YEAR! Again last night he was giving the ball away in dangerous positions and getting caught. All I would say is last night we had to play him due to Dacoure. Just don't make out we can accommodate playing someone hoping one day he will light up the pitch again.

I felt last night Chelsea were very good with the ball and had better composure. We gave the ball away cheaply and too often but also were not brave enough when we had it. That's not good enough and nothing to do with talent or the opposition.
We will learn over time and Carlo will start to instil that in the players.

Some players like Digne, Gomes, Holgate and Iwobi let themselves down because they didn't perform as they should and that is fine to point out.

The positives were Pickford, Godfrey and Allan and Davies coming back. Which is also fine to point out.

This is a massive game. If we can get the win it can put us on the road for top 4. We've still got spurs and Arsenal plus the city game on the last day but this could set the tone for the final part of the season.

Lose and it could completely derail us. Win and anywhere from 2nd to 4th is easily achievable.

Big pressure on this one but I'd back Carlo to maneuver a win.
