Any substance in the Josh king to Everton murmurs in the rags today Ed002?


{Ed002's Note - It has to be possible as Everton have previously shown interest, and Bournemouth are keen to sell now as he will be out of contract in the summer. Newcastle have had an offer for JK rejected and offers may well be coming from West Ham and West Brom.}

Talk of Kenny or Branthwaite going the opposite direction, happy for Kenny to go but think letting Branthwaite go would be a mistake.

2.) 10 Jan 2021 10:35:15
Letting Branthwaite go would be a massive mistake. I believe him and Godfrey could be a future centre back partnership for years to come.

3.) 10 Jan 2021 10:35:17
Much obliged Ed.

4.) 10 Jan 2021 11:17:00
The report doesn’t state whether they want our player out loan or permanently, if on loan and given game time I would like Branthwaite given the experience
If permanently then maybe time for Kenny to move.

5.) 10 Jan 2021 12:49:35
If Branthwaite going surely would only be a loan.

6.) 10 Jan 2021 15:04:59
Is he any better than Toson?

7.) 10 Jan 2021 21:10:49
Surely not isn't he another left winger?

8.) 11 Jan 2021 13:47:54
Pretty sure he’s a CF but can play across the front line. Could be wrong though.

Anything on Everton pursuing Zeki Celik, Turkish right back playing for Lille Ed002.


{Ed002's Note - Zeki Celik (RB) Last summer Lille were willing to sell for €20M and don't want to negotiate too far from that amount. The player was looking to move to England at some point and the asking price has proven too high for Villareal who were offered to opportunity to bid for him. West Ham, Everton and Spurs showed an interest. Roma approached Lille before Christmas and are now trying to negortiate a deal.}

1.) 06 Jan 2021 20:15:51
Nice one Ed!



09 Nov 2020 20:31:36
Ed002, any real chance of Isco winding up at Everton?


{Ed002's Note - common sense says no - it is not wghat Everton need - and there have been talks about another opportunity for him.}



20 Oct 2020 14:38:48
Another story about a European break away on Sky Ed002, the C.V. seems to be accelerating the plans of the regular champs league sides, any news you can share with us Ed?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what t has been said but there was a push on Friday to again discuss expanding the pre-season International Champions Cup to a much larger event where clubs would be members of the tournament through a debenture type system but need to commit to playing their first team in all games. It would be a money spinner but will add many more first team games to the annual schedule - and this was one of the drivers behind Liverpool's Project Big Foot. The idea has been around for quite a long time.}

1.) 20 Oct 2020 15:01:30
in all seriousness how much money do premier league clubs need i think its a an absolute shambles and these proposals should be rejected a. s. a. p its a joke just keep everything the way it is its working isn't it honestly the top 6 generate enough money the premier league generates enough money just leave it the premier league woudnt be the same without the top 6 teams and also are league is the best league in the world fact.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 20:10:35
i say let the greedy persons go. kick em out of our league, think of all the european trips they will have and expense for the fans or is it uck the fans.

3.) 20 Oct 2020 21:48:35
Could be a loophole for the big boys to get it as a money spinner and assist with their ffp, sure Ed002 will be able to let us know if this is the case.

{Ed002's Note - They would have significantly more money taken from the others.}



14 Oct 2020 20:38:07
Ed002 you've not really touched on the recent "project big picture" news, I know you have posted detailed analysis of where English football is headed in regards to break away leagues and what not, just interested to hear what your take on the latest development is, and also if you have any knowledge that's not yet in the public domain.


{Ed002's Note - I could explain what it was really about, but in simple terms it was the Liverpool owners looking to burn everyone to try and boost the growth potential of the club through a new tournament and burning everyone else to distribute games via PPV. Fortunately today, football rejected them. There was huge objection to the Liverpool proposals which would have potentially killed the EFL within three years.}

1.) 15 Oct 2020 00:12:05
Thanks Ed002, your knowledge and insight continue to amaze me, not bad for a Rodeo Clown.

2.) 15 Oct 2020 10:38:41
Good stuff Ed.

Ed002, have you heard anything on wether Everton and Marcel Brands are close on agreeing a further contract? He seems to get a bit of stuck from Evertonians, but I think he has been fantastic for Everton in his 2 and a bit years at the club.


{Ed002's Note - Sorry, I would need to ask.}

1.) 16 Jan 2021 10:35:27
Gets no stick from me. He's managed to shift some amount of players out the club. That was going to be harder than signing players. Hope he agrees new contract. He's tidying up Walsh's mess.

2.) 16 Jan 2021 11:47:26
Been a mixed bag with him, some great signings, some bad, some average.

Good:- Think we can all agree that Richarlison (who I thought was before brands but I stand corrected) Digne have been a big success. James, Allan and Doucoure, early signs look good.

Average:- Iwobi, Mina could be judged as bad signings but recent form currently has them as average in my book, could go either way for them from here, Keane initially had him down as an average signing but his form now proves the investment has now paid off so hope these two follow suit. Gomes and Bernard, difficult ones, I can see why we signed Gomes, but that horror injury has taken its toll, not Marcels fault. And although we’ve seen flashes of brilliance from Bernard he’s a firmly average player for me, the fact we brought him in on a free means we can sell him for a profit so purely on business terms it’s been a good deal.

Bad:- Delph and Kean (although if Keans recent form at PSG means we can sell at a profit this was a good deal from a business sense if not a football sense)

I’m going to reserve judgement on Gbamin until we actually see him play.

So all in all I think he’s done a decent job and happy for him to continue. More hits than misses for certain and I wonder how many of those misses were from Moshiris advisors. The more recent signings have been largely positive.

3.) 16 Jan 2021 11:55:23
Forgot about Godfrey, early signs seem to show this will prove to be a great signing so another tick in marcels book.

4.) 16 Jan 2021 13:51:05
Plus Nkounkou looks like a good signing.

5.) 16 Jan 2021 16:00:40
Keane was bought by Walsh Gibbo. i think Mina has been steady too.

6.) 16 Jan 2021 16:02:46
And Branthwaite.

7.) 16 Jan 2021 16:48:41
Yeah I know Keane was Smit, was just using Keane as an example of a player who started quite slowly but in the last year or so has proved a good investment, hoping Mina and Iwobi do the same was what I was getting at, only time will tell.

8.) 16 Jan 2021 17:56:15
Keane has followed suit with the team. When we have done well he does well when we're rubbish so is he.
In the main, I think he is steady and needs a partner. Now he has Mona he looks good.
Just goes to show that even in this quick paced league 2 slow CBs can succeed if played with the right players around them.



17 Sep 2020 20:30:29
I thought it was clear in the game against Salford that Jon Joe Kenny is not going to be a first team regular, he was ok defensively albeit against a much lower standard team, but going forward he just didn't look comfortable at all, he passed the ball back inside virtually everytime he made it over the half way line, he isn't better than an ageing Seamus, Carlo will definitely look to bring someone else in before the window shuts I would think.




25 Aug 2020 19:08:47
Apparently Watford value Doucoure at 35 million. everton won't be offering anywhere near that I suspect.


1.) 25 Aug 2020 20:20:09
Would like us to sign him but think that’s a bit too expensive given current situation.

2.) 25 Aug 2020 20:33:42
And in the current market I am not sure we should pay that
We need to learn from costly transfers and over paying.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 21:28:42
They’ll settle for far less than that.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 22:50:55
I agree JB. Watch a few of these chairmen fold and come over in a cold sweat as the realise they need to cash in the last 72 hours of the window. Only Chelsea and Leeds seem to be financially free to a degree.



08 Aug 2020 10:48:02
Anything new on Gabriel Magalhaes Eds?
Also if Everton as anticipated recieve planning permission for the BMD stadium, would it allow them to circumnavigate some of the impending issues we will have in regards to FFP?


{Ed002's Note - I still think it very unlikely that Gabriel Magalhaes will join Everton.

The new stadium does not get the club out of the hole for FFP - but the club has the opportunity this year to fix the problem.}

1.) 08 Aug 2020 11:09:27
I seen that wolves were have been punished for FFP breaches Ed, the punishment didn't seem that severe, although if they qualify for the champs league it may affect them negatively, are EFC's FFP problems more severe than Wolves, and would hence result in worse penalties?

{Ed002's Note - Wolves came clean and the big issue they will face is over transfers going forward - meaning if the want to make significant additions they need to raise that money through sales. Everton's issues relate to sustainability and a need to reduce the wage bill or get additional income from somewhere. Everon's penalties would be imposed by The FA and not UEFA.}

2.) 08 Aug 2020 12:18:49
Thanks Ed, I don't envy Brands trying move players that are on good contracts on in the current market, I think we may have to consider cashing in on one of our big players, the club can't risk being given a transfer ban or a point deduction for the 21/ 22 season.



18 Jun 2020 20:24:07
I seen in various news items today that UEFA are planning on relaxing the FFP rules, do you know how long they will be relaxed for Ed002, and more importantly what it might mean for Everton in the short term?


{Ed002's Note - It i sthere to encourage those with issue to sort themselves out.|}

1.) 19 Jun 2020 18:19:48
not a relaxation a cessation of the rules.
No use to us unless we're in Europe.

Haha, was thinking more for our problem right wing Ed, but yeah probably more a number 10 than he is a winger.

I think everyone is being a bit harsh on Gylfi, I believe that if we get Allan and Doucoure, Sigurdsson will look a much better player for us, trying to make him a conventional box to box midfielder is putting square peg in round hole, with dynamic players behind him I honestly expect to a vast improvement from Gylfi and also Bernard.

I agree Ed, he has played in the Premier league for a few years now, is a bit younger than Allan, and all round I am guessing he would be cheaper.

Did anyone else think Iwobi had a really good game against Leeds the other night? I thought some of his hold up play was class, and was always tracking runners and helping out Holgate, I'm hoping the arrival of Josh King provokes more from Iwobi.

No doubt the kid is talented, but players from the Dutch youth systems see to have great difficulties adapting to the English leagues, not sure if they fare any better in Germany, Italy or France, but you automatically think of Klassen, and the lad United signed in the Summer, Luk De Jong also, if I was Gravenberch I would consider any move abroad very carefully, especially when the seductive amounts of money are being offered by English clubs.

Well said Sobs, the fans who are open to the breakaway need to be careful what they wish for. And to be honest, I really don't think LFCs and uniteds hardened fans will allow American owners to take them out of domestic football purely to line their own pockets, it would mean everything they have achieved in English football would basically be discarded.

I've heard Henderson bleating on about it, Klopp also and now Wijnaldum, and of course all of the other ex professionals who never made any bad tackles in their careers, and if they did it was "a different generation", assault was allowed in the 80s according to Souness, all of the bellyaching is a ploy by LFC, just watch how many decisions go in their favour now.

I must admit the pessimist evertoian in me feels tempted by the idea of a point. but there is a beam of light shining through the dark saying "hang on, let's see what happens" we're a different Everton just now, and a very wise man from Peckham once said " he who dares, wins". COME ON BLUE BOYS! N. S. N. O!
