The cancellation of the Everton verses Manchester City raises a few questions. I believe City will miss more than the Everton game and if this happens for say to City again I can see a scenario where they would not be able to fulfill all their League games so we would end up with an incomplete season. In that case which teams for example would go into next seasons European competitions? Would it be the teams occupying the top spots when the season is concluded? Or if the season was just cancelled would the teams who qualified for Europe last year just be entered again?
Maybe Ed002 can give some advice?


{Ed002's Note - The effort is to complete the season and many sides have had and will continue to have COVID-19 related issues. There is a proposal on the table to to draw a line across and call the table final if 50% of the games have been played - clubs will be against it so there is no vote. There is, like last season, no recourse to simply cancel the season. I expect it will be discussed again soon and realistically there is another lock down coming.}

Thanks Ed002.

I'm not upset about the game being cancelled so much as it's people's health at stake, it was very cloak an dagger.

Regardless of all the crap in the newspapers about Everton making offers for players my prediction is that we will pay for one and get several on loan while of course moving out as many of the non-squad players as possible. Hopefully a few of the kids will step forward. Kenny will also be back, thought that he had a good game yesterday and scored a belter. Probably no good enough for the future but right now would be a good addition to the squad.


{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen. Everton cannot have "several" players on loan.}

1.) 08 Jun 2020 17:12:21
Sorry ed002 my mistake, how many can they take on loan?

{Ed002's Note - Premier League clubs may register no more than four loan players over a season and no more than two at any one time and a maximum of one from any other club.}

2.) 08 Jun 2020 17:23:24
Sorry ed002 I should be more careful with my words, I really meant a couple (two) .

{Ed002's Note - You mean a brace.}

New to the site and just looking at Ed’s point about Everton being in serious trouble ( or words to that effect) alongside the likes of Barca, Marseille, Aston Villa, Sheff Wednesday.
But I disagree about Everton, serious trouble says we need to sell Richarlison and Digne and bring in frees and loans.
We have a lot of money behind us, just held back by ffp at the moment and obviously C.V. now hasn’t helped. But Ancelotti hasn’t joined a team on the brink. And Moshiri is paying him and his team a 100m in salaries over the next 4.5yrs

I’ve heard of a few financial football experts and not Everton related. But have said we have big money behind us. What about spurs, furloughing staff getting a 175mil loan, Arsenal also apparently have no money, but Everton are on the verge of going broke.

If we are in trouble, then I fully expect the ground to put on hold for a few years. Let’s see. But I expect Everton to spend this summer, might not be a fortune but they will.

{Ed002's Note - Clearly you don’t grasp the issues that Everton has nor the FFP regulations. I have not said Everton are going broke and perhaps you don’t understand the issues at Spurs needing to pay for a new stadium not Arsenal with issues caused last season. The entire post is from a position of complete ignorance. Everton have been spending beyond their means - as I have repeatedly explained.}

Sorry to hear about Koeman, wish him a speedy recovery.


1.) 03 May 2020 23:08:23
I think its crazy how so many footballers have heart problems. you'd think they were near superhuman compared to us mere mortals. wish him a speedy recovery.

2.) 07 May 2020 14:46:15
It does seem strange but underlying heart issues can effect the fittest of people, I’m into cycling and few months ago Team Ineos sporting director died suddenly of heart attack he was 40 and ex pro who was extremely fit and healthy, it’s very worrying for rest of his who don’t lead a healthy lifestyle like athletes.

3.) 08 May 2020 08:09:34
It is no mystery at all. As in all very active occupations, Sport (particularly in the pro ranks) , Military, Fire Service etc! Once those retire or cease, then it takes a great deal of physical and in particular mental fortitude to keep the body at such a high fitness level or near as damn it. In not doing so the body begins to ease back. Witness the amount of ex Military in dire straits. I and many many others who had such professions, have been able to adjust. We are the lucky one's.

Improvement has been pretty rapid under Brandt and Silva. A better recruitment policy, targeting younger players with potential and mainly focusing on improving the balance of the squad. The playing style has improved markedly, away from the dull style of last years managers to a attacking style easy on the eye. Players seem to better understand their role in the team and appear to be enthusiastic and committed to the Silva style of play.

We also now have an owner who is capable of moving us forward and that is not a criticism of Bill who did his best for us over many difficult years.
Some things however never seem to change. I am now 78 and went to my first game at 6 years of age. Of course we have had golden periods, too long ago unfortunately, but I would be a rich man if I had received a pound for every time it has been said that we would be a great team but for the lack of one or two players. Right now we need a top centre forward who can score goals and probably a right-winger who can also score.

It has also been said many times that if we could convert some of our draws into wins we would be more often in the top six. Well as of today we have five draws out of fifteen games, some against teams that we should have beaten especially in home games.

And then we come to playing at Anfield. How many times do that lot win at the last moment? It is so inevitable I can't stand to watch the end of the game.
So many things to rejoice about as the Holliday season approaches. Still work for Brands and Silva to do and unlike previous administrations, I have every confidence that they will correct the deficiencies as soon as practical and possible.
So for all fellow Blues and Eds I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year with thanks to all the Eds who do a great job on this site.

Haven't seen any comments from Ed025, is he still recovering from a hangover?


{Ed025's Note - im having computer problems mike but hopefully it will be sorted soon mate..

1.) 21 Feb 2021 20:58:18
Good we miss you.

{Ed025's Note - cheers mate..

2.) 21 Feb 2021 21:09:38
Blew up after the match eh Ed mate.

{Ed001's Note - I had to confiscate it, he was far too happy! Can't be having that now can I?!?} Become a Patron!

3.) 21 Feb 2021 21:19:33
Good to see you anyway mate .

{Ed025's Note - cheers 247..



13 Feb 2021 14:28:17
Liverpool to make an offer for Pickford?


{Ed047's Note - nobody is making an offer for that clown

1.) 13 Feb 2021 14:40:21
Haha - too tight.

2.) 13 Feb 2021 14:44:29
Allison starting to run him close in the clown stakes 😂.

3.) 13 Feb 2021 15:01:09
I thought that was Jordan wearing a mask Dan. 🤣.

4.) 13 Feb 2021 15:26:03
I doubt Jordon could put a mask on the right way round.

5.) 13 Feb 2021 15:28:04
Very much like Pickford to be honest. One stunning double save shortly followed by a complete clanger.

6.) 13 Feb 2021 17:51:18
Come on Ed047. Don't be so disparaging towards Clowns. You will upset Ed002 who has told us that he is a Rodeo Clown in real life.

{Ed047's Note - that’s a good point well made Mike, I take it all back 🤣



10 Feb 2021 23:47:53
I don't want to hear another bad word about Tom Davies from you lot. Play him in his favorite position and he is a very good player.


1.) 11 Feb 2021 07:05:12
He's been excellent the last couple of games, credit where its due. But to say you never want to hear a bad word about him is nonsense. So he's played well and should therefore never be criticised again in his career?! People like myself and Ed025 I'm sure will continue to praise players when they play well and criticise them when they're poor. If you don't want to see opinions that differ from your own might I suggest you stop visiting a banter site. Davies is a local lad and seems a good guy. We all want him to do well but that doesn't mean we will all pretend he is playing well when he isn't. Hopefully he will kick on from these last couple of great performances and I will be first in line to praise him if he does.

2.) 11 Feb 2021 08:31:01
Well said toffee davey could not put it any better we all have are opinions
Just because he has had 2 good games does not mean he is a starter the lad needs to so this week in week out cut out the silly fouls and miss placed passes.
He has a lot or work to do hope carlo can get the best out of him time will tell.

3.) 11 Feb 2021 08:56:47
There is no doubt tom Davies has improved, another tell tale sign of a quality manager. Also a lot of credit to tom davies as he's obviously putting in the hard yards.

4.) 11 Feb 2021 09:09:55
Its nice to see Tom has progressed recently he seems to be developing well under CA, let's hope it continues and he reaches the potential as we hope he would.



03 Feb 2021 20:22:07
2-0 up at half time so we have to eat humble pie so far. Just don't understand why we can't play with this intensity every game.


1.) 03 Feb 2021 20:27:17
We need brands to sign fhat leeds pitch😂.



03 Feb 2021 18:35:57
Sorry, can't believe what I am seeing with the team news.


1.) 03 Feb 2021 18:49:42
Oh your seeing it mate. Baffling.

2.) 03 Feb 2021 18:59:52
Its actually baffling!

3.) 03 Feb 2021 19:02:50
James on the bench, must be carrying one of the many knocked that Newcastle gave him last game. They spent more time stood on his foot than the turf.

4.) 03 Feb 2021 19:12:51
Still guys Siggy must be fresh as a daisy with the effort he puts in last game.
CA has proved us wrong before hopefully again!

We said the same thing before both the Newcastle and Fulham games. It worries me that we reserve our worst games when we have a great opportunity to move int the top five/ six in the table and play against teams lower in the table. Hopefully this time we will win and by a large margin.

Well bignev I am going to miss the Old Lady. Been there when we had an attendance of close to 80,000 as a teenager with my friend Neville Smith who went on to write "The Golden Vision". Been there when we won the league and when we had the first game under lights and many other fantastic memories. Hopefully I will still be alive and well enough to go to the new stadium.

Come on guys it was just a bit of Scouse sarcasm. Of course I am ecstatic about our win, although I am old enough at 81 to remember the times when we could beat them on a regular basis.

Don't get too excited mate, we played against a poor team that has now lost four on the row at home. They also have a strategically inept manager who focuses his post match comments on the validity of our penalty. Since Christmas they have taken 9 points from ten games according to the match commentators. Too easy for the Professor and his men.

I am a little hot and cold on Siggy which is about what his performance is. He is capable of some good football but hides for long periods. Long term he is not the answer, maybe as an impact sub.

I hope James is fit and starts as #10, we need some magic from him. Play Doucoure, Allan and Davies in midfield, same defense, job done!

Didn't like any of the Liverpool players when they played us, nothing personnel, just one of those things.

Very sad to see him passing so young, I have to say that since I am one year younger than him. Watched him often, didn't like him too much then but hope he RIP.

A win which is great but not a convincing performance. Why do we constantly get into offside positions especially in dead ball situations? It cost us a goal today and made things tighter at the end than they should have been.
