Now coming out he hasn't been offered the job. my head hurts!


1.) 17 Jun 2021 11:51:23
You and me BJU, I'm sick of reading articles, that contrast the previous one I read. Seem to be going round and round in circles. Does anyone know what is actually going on?
I mean it looked nailed on we were getting Nuno, now it looks like we are getting Rafa, another article saying we are in talks with a return of Martinez, and another still linking us with potter. I think we have been linked with every manager in the history of the game.
Next one will be a return to the premier League for Alex Ferguson.
Glad we aren't just jumping into an appointment, but it sounds as though we don't know who we want.
At least there are managers interested!

The news outlets just keep stirring it all up and you have the News Now click bate website. I need to learn to just go on holiday and chillout for a bit whilst all this goes on and by the time I'm home it's all sorted.

Instead sat here clicking refresh 20 times a second on NN with an ever decreasing bottle of whisky!



05 Oct 2020 12:02:01
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.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 12:19:49
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.



27 Sep 2020 21:27:32
Spirit of the blues is number 1 in the iTunes chart! I am loving being a blue right now.

Remember when we were rubbish? Seems so long ago!


1.) 28 Sep 2020 17:01:40
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 .

2.) 28 Sep 2020 17:39:54
Z cars now moving up 😂😂.



17 Dec 2019 18:33:04
Is there anyone left on here who stills questions Big Dunc and credentials?


1.) 17 Dec 2019 19:13:04
How could you, the guy bleeds blue COYB.

2.) 17 Dec 2019 20:41:39
Bluejohn, He's dynamite mate, just exudes Everton FC and if you don't follow suit, start ducking pal! lol.

3.) 17 Dec 2019 21:26:44
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.

Anyone still panicking over signing players?

Still 27 days 8 hours left as well.

Wonder what the 27 years group are doing right now? Probably still looking like idiots I suppose.


1.) 05 Aug 2022 17:46:13
They will probably take credit for it BJU, they will think that the bedsheets worked ??.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 18:19:40
Okay! How about let's loan our young strikers out, oh crap DCL out for 6 weeks.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 23:29:35
You're right Ducks. Let's have another pointless protest!



30 Jul 2022 08:24:07
33 days and 14 hours to go till the window closes. Quick everyone panic! Jeez! ?.


1.) 30 Jul 2022 08:44:48
No panic from me mate we are doing really well in this window, plenty more time to bring a couple more in.

2.) 30 Jul 2022 11:59:12
Tons of time GB. However, for some there's little patience. Decent win last night and all 3 signings involved in goals. We already look better than last season with just these. A couple more and we're good to go.

3.) 30 Jul 2022 13:31:40
I think it's the need to get them in before 1st game to gel with other players and train. Just means chopping and changing team a couple weeks after start of league.

4.) 30 Jul 2022 14:50:00
Doesn't really matter. The team that starts the first few games usually evolves as the players prem form and suitability for the formation and system is assessed.

5.) 30 Jul 2022 15:59:17
The seasons over 38 games not 3. THe team is plenty good enough to get through the early season start even without signings.

I never understand the panic and frustration people get into. Either way 1st game almost here and I can't bloody wait.



27 Jul 2022 21:07:37
What a surprise! We signed some players!

Everyone a little calmer now? Please, please, please, next year instead of getting all hysterical, just search back to ANY previous year and allay your fears.


Just copy and paste yoir same rant from this year to save yourself some time. ?.


1.) 27 Jul 2022 22:23:06
Who have we signed? Tarks and an ex wolves player on loan.
Panic over ?.

2.) 28 Jul 2022 00:24:27
Yep in response to bju I wasn't getting me boxers in a twist by the lack of signings but by the same measure I'm not doing the fandango with the players we have brought in so far.

3.) 28 Jul 2022 07:09:03
And McNeil with more on the horizon Smit. And every player will be an ex player of some club.

Ye of little faith smit. I thought the Grinch mainly came out at Xmas.



08 May 2022 22:26:07
I've moaned on here about how toxic our fans have been and that they have contributed to our decline. Well since Frank has took over and brought those fans together they've proved the point that if you support and back those players through thick and thin we are better than any signing we could ever make.

That last 24 hours have been the best 24 hours I've ever seen any support at any club in the world. Our club is back with a manager that understands the fans and how to being it all together. For us supporters we have to keep this up and back these players and manager. Not just for this season but seasons to come. If we do then this club truly is on its aay back and not just from the brink.



1.) 09 May 2022 01:19:44
Well said BJU

We're a lot better fighting together rather than fighting with each other


2.) 09 May 2022 06:17:33
BW has just described life.



02 May 2022 09:27:47
Great game yesterday. Intelligent game management but so many attributes shown that have been missing all season.

Yeri is so important for our team. He's a leader, pain in the ass for the opposition but I can't remember the last time we had someone who was that motivational. He was in everyone's faces, even his own players try to get everyone wound up. It was infectious because that also kept the tempo up with the crowd. He was brilliant.

Next our fans were unreal, from the 3 hours before the game, well actually 12 hours before the game setting off the early morning alarm at the hotel.


1.) 02 May 2022 11:01:35
We need Mina in the side. When he plays it does not matter who the other center-back is, Keane, Holgate or Branthwaite, they all play better with Mina alongside them. Without Mina any other two playing is a disaster waiting to happen. Definitely an area we need to strengthen next year.

2.) 02 May 2022 11:51:05
Agree BM centreback is definitely an area we need to address next season.
Think whatever money is available in transfer window it’s the area that needs most attention and would rather see the money spent there than on a striker to replace DCL or Ricky if they go.

We never learn our lesson. He's young, very young. He won't peak till 26 to 29. Until then he's learning. We have to keep our young players and play and then they learn and get better.

There's some that don't realise that you don't learn everything on day one. You learn with experience.

Patience people.

Actually DFS if you listen to he 1st AGM with Moshiri and Bill. Bill said in that meeting, I'm always saying wait a minute hang on, you can't sign everyone. It has been clear moshiri has been getting bad advice and not listening to Bill. Putting Bill back in charge of negotiating might be what we need to put the club on a stable footing.

Moyes was our manager and belittled us almost every season and yet plenty still wanted him as manager.

He was 10 times more our enemy than Rafa. And no, I didn't want rafa either but I love being proved wrong, especially when we're winning. Hope he really rubs my nose it and makes me eat my own hat after winning the fa cup and getting us into Europe.

I don't argue with that. However, there isn't one player in the world that has gone 6 months without making mistakes. Some are held against them more than others. Which, is understandable as they tend to be more closely scrutinised if they've gone through a period where they haven't performed and especially if you are the England number 1.

I don't blame him getting what he is due. We would all do the same in his position. He will have commitments that he pays for and staff and this will be based on his earnings. Players are like businesses.

The good news though is that it seems we are being better at managing our wages structure better.

Keane, mina and Godfrey would be gone before Holgate.

Keane makes a lot of mistakes. Godfrey regularly does dodgy back passes without looking. 2 in preseason and the one that led to him breaking his leg. Mina gets injured whe the wind changes direction.

I thought Holgate done really well when he came on and I think he defended 90% of the corners that came in. We know he has this tendancy to pass back all the time but maybe, as people say, he'll learn from Tarks and Coady.

I don't think he handles pressure very well. He made a few bad choices yesterday including trying to stop Godfreys terrible back pass. If it was me I would take as much off him as possible and just let him play his normal game.

Tarks is a great choice for me.

He was my and most peoples man of the match around me at Goodison yesterday. It has been a great transformation for he lad.

Three was a point where he lost the ball in their half and he was the one fighting to get it back in our half and just kept running until we had it back. Last season against united he done that and he hasn't looked back since.

Every player in the world can improve but his role has changed now in helping the tempo of he team and getting it to the forward players rather than him being the forward player to recoeve it and it suits him down to the ground.

But people see what they want to see. No issue with that.

Still 20 odds days to go ducks. We needed other areas filling first so we became stronger and not as easy to run over. I think they had 16 corners yesterday and we never looked like conceding from anything they had except for the pen.

The season has kicked off earlier and I'm confident BECAUSE of the people at the top who are now doing our transfers that we will get the final prices of the jigsaw.

A little more patience is needed, Rome wasn't built in a day.
