Everton lining up Jacob Greaves If United meet their valuation. Seen a bit of him and very good player.


1.) 16 Jun 2024 21:30:09
There's gems in the championship. Jude Bellingham was Birmingham and look at him now. The desire to succeed usually beats skill and flair.

2.) 16 Jun 2024 22:01:33
His brother Jobe decent aswell think palace looking at him.

3.) 17 Jun 2024 08:52:29
Should be looking at young talent that aren’t already in high wages.

4.) 17 Jun 2024 14:17:46
Prefer Greaves as the Godfrey replacement if he’s not signing a new contract
And he can offer cover for Mykolenko as well.

Happy New Year everyone. Tricky month ahead but keep the faith its going to be ok. Talk of Danjuma going to Lyon as not getting enough game time?


{Ed002's Note - Arnaut Danjuma (W) His agent and Villareal want him out of his loan at Everton early with Lyon talking to his club.}

1.) 01 Jan 2024 11:51:13
Yep ditto that, hope we hear soon re our appeal need that out out the way as soon as.

2.) 01 Jan 2024 13:56:37
All this rumour of us getting this lad or that lad is just that. Loans (on small wages) and freebies is just that. Everton are still in deep brown stuff and my opinion will need to sell a couple of players of value.

3.) 01 Jan 2024 15:31:57
Yeah but the bad news Holgate could be on his way back.

4.) 01 Jan 2024 16:14:34
Well if were not going to play him then let him go, and try and loan a player who will play.

5.) 02 Jan 2024 09:57:01
He hasn't been disappointing rather than having a bit of a shocker. He is full of running and flatters to deceive but just has no end product. He seems to want to smash every cross or shot as hard as possible. He seems to have all the ingredients but clearly this seems a level too far. France would suit him. Definitely time to end loan and to replace with someone else. Who? Got a feeling us and Palace will be resting players and we could somehow end up going through or worse a replay (do they still do replays in FA Cup? ) Neither club could do with a batch of cup games for a tournament neither can ultimately win. Best to get knocked out as our squad can't handle the games.

6.) 02 Jan 2024 09:59:31
Swap him, yes I know probably get a bag of spuds for him.

7.) 02 Jan 2024 13:25:08
Close glt59 might be Lingard?.



19 Dec 2023 11:55:01
Anyone heard Leighton Baines could be going to Plymouth to replace Stephen Schumacher who is off to Stoke.


1.) 19 Dec 2023 13:22:10
Good luck to him if he does.

2.) 19 Dec 2023 14:04:09
Really rated Leighton, one of our top notch players, a true Blue and good luck in his new venture.

3.) 19 Dec 2023 19:37:45
If he does take up the role could be a chance for some of our youngsters to possibly get some first team experience with a loan to them.

4.) 19 Dec 2023 21:34:42
I hope he does really well if that’s true. Top top man. Be great to see him have a successful career in management.

5.) 19 Dec 2023 22:05:20
Lewis Warrington already there and he is struggling for gametime. It's a good opportunity for LB with a young team but also a dangerous job to take as maybe they have already reached there ceiling. Hope he is very successful, my favourite from that team.

6.) 20 Dec 2023 15:33:11
Would like to see this. someone leaving early to cut their teeth and hopefully become a top manager. Unsy and Dunc were great servants (and probably weren't good enough managers anyway as it turned out) but both stayed too long and were never going to get the permanent gig at Everton having not managed elsewhere!



03 Jul 2023 12:43:15
Local news down in Plymouth suggest Lewis Gibson is joining Plymouth permanently after loan at Bristol Rovers last year.




13 Jan 2023 18:58:49
Myers reporting no one at the club was aware Moshiri was doing the interview with Talksport yesterday. Almost like his ears pricked up with the word protest and he rang the journo he thinks is his mate to try and quell the masses. Stinks of complete chaos


1.) 13 Jan 2023 21:13:09
He's either a fool in denial or there is a huge rift opening up between him and the board.

2.) 14 Jan 2023 00:28:07
Or he’s finally listened to the fans about the silence from the top and him not speaking out and he’s taken an opportunity to do that.

Sounds like he got it all wrong but at least he made an attempt?

3.) 14 Jan 2023 09:36:55
Solves nothing though does it. We have in my opinion an inferior Squad to what we had as far back as the one Martinez inherited. Yes you can blame Managers, DoF's but who does the dilligence who sanctions transfers, who does the negotiations. £100,000 a week! Yes of course, 4 year contract! Yes if course. BK to Moshri, well that was easy.

4.) 14 Jan 2023 11:40:48
Totally dfs. Martinez inherited a fantastic squad. It has been pretty much down hill since then. To various degrees obviously. That's 10 years now and just before Moshiri took over. It can't all be his fault but the buck certainly does stop with him. He has the final say on pretty much everything I would imagine. He has to take most of the blame.

5.) 14 Jan 2023 11:46:59
Slightly in his defense a new stadium is being built which is not simple. A dip in the club would obviously be tolerated for that as long as we stay up. The Spuds did Slightly do worse when they transitioned but not this severe.

The rumbles about a lack of funds and acknowledgment that Moshiri is looking for a minority investor doesn't instill confidence that the club is moving forward properly. This on top of the transfer situation does not put Moshiri in good light. He needs to hold his hands up more than he is doing. For his own good. Otherwise he's on the way out. Let's just hope if that happens he doesn't leave a mess behind him.

6.) 15 Jan 2023 15:07:20
What is the point in a new stadium if we are a championship club? The problem isn't as simple as having a team that's not good enough, every cog in the machine is badly rusted at best. That means that the championship may not be rock bottom for us.

7.) 16 Jan 2023 14:02:50
Like I said Blue-tit as long as we don't go down. So I agree.

This could play out several ways and the differences are vast. I have enjoyed the last month with hope - oh well!

1. Moshiri and Friedkin haggling and Moshiri backs down and we get our takeover.
2.Friedkin seen the extent of the trouble we're in and decided not for him. He risks losing a lot of money if we go into administration.
3.This takeover is over and one of the other interested parties comes in. We have lost a month which is precious time but we may get the dream local owners.

Cmon let's win the Astrixs derby and calm the nerves.




10 Jan 2024 19:26:20
Interesting interview from Real Madrid Assistant Manager Davide Ancelotti who has spoken to El Pais about his time at Everton. Especially the last 6 months and board interference/ squabbling.

“Me and my father (Carlo Ancelotti) enjoyed our time at Everton. We came in at the end of 2019 with a plan to get the club to where we all felt it deserved to be, competing at the top.

The owner (Farhad Moshiri) sold us a vision which really excited us, we knew then that this was the place to really achieve that. The club had clearly went through a period of instability and we were determined to change that.
Everyone knows that the Premier League isn’t easy, that first season was difficult. Everton was at the wrong end of the table when we took over. What we took from that season was the assessment of the squad and how we would improve that in the Summer.

Unfortunately by this time, the world was a few months into a C.V. This had a significant impact on Football and the financial implications were great. This is something we had to work with.

That summer (2020) we were able to do some business to improve the squad including bringing in a player me and my father knew very well in James Rodriguez. However during this time problems began, there was a number of disagreements with the Director of Football (Marcel Brands) on strategy.
He (Brands) wanted players which we felt weren’t the right fit for Everton, in the end we came to an agreement on the players we would pursue but this was a long and difficult process.

The Chairman (Bill Kenwright who passed away in October 2023) would often sit in at these meetings giving advice which we found strange as this was something I had not seen at other football clubs.

Following the summer we started the season (2020/ 21) really well and we were confident that the club could really achieve european Football. There was of course a couple of poor runs throughout the season which ultimately cost us and we finished 10th, this was very disappointing.
My father had grown increasingly frustrated with the business done in the January window that season and after a meeting with the Chairman at the end of the season we discovered that the club had very little to spend in the summer (2021) .

We were also told this was something unlikely to change for a number of years, at this point I think my father had made his decision that this project was coming to an end.

Just a day after this meeting Real Madrid had approached us to take over there, it was a pretty easy decision but that isn’t out of respect for Everton. It’s a wonderful football club however with the serious financial problems it was facing we decided that is was the right decision to leave. ”.


1.) 10 Jan 2024 21:23:34
Yeah interesting read cookie78. I for one have no issues with carlo leaving. I recall the loss against Fulham at home and seeing how angry upset and utterly dejected carlo looked. I think his appetite had gone after that game. I still think carlo is the business and a class fella and do not begrudge him leaving, again more than likely down to that bafoon moshiri.

2.) 10 Jan 2024 21:25:33
Excuses excuses, absolute bull rubbish.

3.) 10 Jan 2024 22:08:04
What's the truth then?

4.) 11 Jan 2024 01:13:35
Wouldn't say excuses but it gives an insight into the way our owner goes about his football business. Was a good read I thought personally. It was a shame when they left, said at the time that it was probably the only club he would have left us for, seems that the interference from the owner and the fact that the DoF was not supporting the manager either also played a part.
Looks like the press are having a bit of a dig at FM today. We had this from DA and also Jim White having his pennies worth, albeit to help sell his new book. Be interesting to see if anything there is more to come.

5.) 11 Jan 2024 06:22:35
What makes me laugh is the fact that Moshiri is supposed to be an accountant. Look at the mess we are in now. You would think that the accounts would be sorted. I think Ancelotti knew what he was doing but soon lost patience when he realised the club was in a mess ran by clowns. Getting his house broken into didn't help either!

6.) 11 Jan 2024 07:07:04
The truth is brown shoes he just dropped us with the drop of a hat because real Madrid came knocking and they are just blaming everton instead of telling the truth.

7.) 11 Jan 2024 07:14:59
He’s an accountant for an oligarch where 2+2 = whatever number is needed.

8.) 11 Jan 2024 12:28:09
That's it? As simple as a hat drop? Ok live and learn. I'd appreciate your 2 short sentence synopsis on the FFP financial plight and new ownership if you can enlighten us all?

9.) 11 Jan 2024 16:38:23
We've spent too much money in the past. Now we're in serious bother.

10.) 11 Jan 2024 17:53:52
Bill sold the club to the wrong person brown shoes
And he has ruined the club.

{Ed025's Note - we all thought we were getting the messiah Skylark...what we actually got was "a very naughty boy" mate.. :)

11.) 11 Jan 2024 19:37:29
It's all so simple and clear now.

12.) 12 Jan 2024 04:48:33
The truth is that he had more of a connection with a club that he had more history with. In addition, the project he was sold by our owner quickly vanished and there was little money there for him to improve our team. If you weren't a blue and you were in his position, I reckon the majority of us would do the same.

13.) 12 Jan 2024 13:28:43
I'm. not sure why your blaming carlo and saying its crap, look at the books, we are in deep deep rubbish, so that bit was 100% correct, why she he lie about the rest, top class managers do ther graft to get where they get, why should he stay at Everton with no money and wrevk his career, Madrid or Everton I no who I'd pick, so he's not to blame the owner is.



23 Dec 2023 12:34:06
With Man City becoming World Champions if we beat them mid week are we then unofficially world champions ? ?.




10 Dec 2023 22:26:04
Tony Bellew legend :)

Said before streaky and looks good on 5min youtube clips goes missing in games. Whittaker or Gnotto are better and same price if mot cheaper.

Whittaker from Plymouth, Gnotto from Leeds both better options IMHO- That said very excited by clubs business so fat.

Greaves is quality. Phily is quality very skillful but goes missing when heat on, gives Demarai Gray vibes.

Looking like light at end of the tunnel and hopefully it's a bright light. Stadium going to be massive. Looking to sort out creativity and goals at front end to build on a solid defence. Trust in the decision makers and understand thinking and pro active planning.

Also got a manager who although not everyone's cuppa tea is the right man and a new ownership who promise better decision making.

Can look on here not fearing Ed002 rightly saying we are going bust and were run by the most incompetent accountant and heading for oblivion.

He also can play 5 positions. Maybe not well but saves the club a lot of money. Not saying its right or perfect.
