Hi eds, hope you are all ok. Do you know if it is possible that Carlo could walk away, I know there is gossip in the papers but also hearing that the board will not sign Begovic as a GK and he is ready to walk because of this?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach for Begovic by Everton and discussions are going on between Bournemouth and another side about him. Ben Foster might prove a better option. You need to remember that Carlo Ancelotti only joined Everton because of the significant saray they offered him. He has now changed all of the support staff, so he has what he needs but he knows that Everton are an unattractive club as they cannot offer European football - and that is an issue which is difficult to overcome when recruiting players. The clubs has a decent number of players that were recruited because of two advisers "helping" Mr Moshiri and these need thinning out - which is very difficult in these times. The club also has FFP issues which need to be addressed. Brands is responsible for much of this and is overall in charge of recruitment. I cannot see CA walking away this summer.}

Thanks for the reply ed, really hope he stays for a few seasons, we need stability.

2.) 24 Aug 2020 16:48:31
I doubt Carlo will walk out on £11 Million a year wage, at the same time hamper his sons progress at Everton.

Hi ed002, just wondering if you have heard if the Zouma to Everton could potentially be revisited in the summer? I understand from below that Everton made errors in their pursuit previously, has this left the deal dead or is it potentially still an option for the player and clubs?


{Ed002's Note - Kurt Zouma - Everton need to talk directly to Chelsea to see what their options are on Zouma - and not through a third party which they tried previously. It looks unlikely anything like that will happen right now - but the option is there.}

1.) 16 Jan 2020 20:51:25
Thanks for the response ed. I think he should be a target as the defence was better with him in it and he is better than most of the CBs we have been linked with.

2.) 17 Jan 2020 00:11:08
Ed002 as you rate unlikely. Other names are more realistic choices? Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I have mentioned hat I know.}



01 Jun 2019 08:52:08
Hi eds, hope you are all ok. I've seen rumours from France stating we have opened talks with Lyon about Bertrand Traore, I think he would be a good replacement for Lookman, do you have any info on this? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Lyon have said they have had a number of approaches and have reminded one club that another side still has an option on the player. They are likely to be reluctant sellers as Maxwel Cornet is available.}

1.) 01 Jun 2019 11:32:35
Cheers mate thank you. congratulations about Wednesday as well!

2.) 01 Jun 2019 14:50:49
Not convinced he is the striker we need. But. Who am I?

3.) 01 Jun 2019 21:41:48
I agree he’s not the striker but I think if and it’s a big IF we are in for him it’s the right wing position he would be considered for not the striker role although he could rotate there I guess
Similarly to what you said, what do I know 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Our club is rotten to the core, the squad have no passion, the coaching team have no tactical knowledge and no ability to motivate players amd the recruitment is just disgusting. Not one of the players play like they want to be here, we have no quality in the squad. Its a telling sign that Moise Kean looked terrible for us, but is now motivated and getting real coaching, he is now playing well. Its not possible for us to do, but only solution would be to tear up everyones contract and start again. I fear we will be in League 1 before we can get these players off the books. Terrible management at board/ director level and also management of the players means we are just going to slide to the bottom of the table, even Fulham showed fight last night, something not one of our players have an ounce of. Disgrace is the only word I can find for this squad, coaching staff and executive team.


{Ed025's Note - wow just wow, talk about over the top gold!, i believe we are getting there slowly but shortly and yes we have faults but come on, 3 weeks ago we were unbeaten and top of the league, we have some very good players and a world class manager so im really looking forward to the future, yes we have some dross but that is being addressed and rome was not built in a day mate, get a grip fella..

1.) 08 Nov 2020 11:55:57
Is this the same Dgold who was getting excited at the players we were linked with and then brought in as well as the same Dgold who in August this year said we need stability?
As Ed says get a grip fella.

2.) 08 Nov 2020 12:05:43
You been drinking DG! Ancillaries one of the best most respected Coach/ Managers in the World. We lost yesterday because no Richie to take pressure off our right - Rodriguez is an effective player but brings a weakness when played out wide Utd knew this and WBA knew this so target him. If possible (January notoriously difficult) Carlo/ Brands will address the RWB issue and suspect bring in another RB. For me meanwhile I would bring Mina back in at CB, push Holgate in front of back 4. Alan and Decoure in front of him, Richie, DCL, Rodriguez.

3.) 08 Nov 2020 12:48:45
DGold angry is OK, me too lot of the time, however there is so much there in your OP that just doesn't add up

look at Carlo's record you just cannot dismiss that after a few poor games, Kean is playing for PSG up against what is equal to our second tier at best PL relegation battlers.

EFC has had terrible recruitment over the years imho that is where the remedy lies, the nucleus of a very strong squad is in it's infancy, and what you are asking for is actually happening now .

4.) 08 Nov 2020 12:58:15
Even the Red Army wouldn't go that far.

5.) 08 Nov 2020 13:31:21
I agree with some of gold's comments and also agree with all the replies but please let's not use rickys absence as an excuse for the past three defeats if we are going to get beat every time he doesn't play then our squad is worse than I thought.

6.) 08 Nov 2020 13:35:36
To be honest, I don't see any players worth keeping the squad, with the exception of Richarlison. I don't like to individually name players who are playing poorly as there can be many causes for this, but a lot of these players have the wrong attitude and/ or just not good enough. I was excited in August, but I think it was more hope that we can finally turn around, but seems misplaced at the moment. Carlo has had success in the past, but has just been shown up by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, a poor manager who only had 36 hours to get his players ready for the game. I have been disappointed with the blues for years, but this season is shaping up to be the most diappointing we have had. Believe it or not, I really hope i'm wrong, would love nothing more than to see them turn this around.

7.) 08 Nov 2020 14:07:51
Honest mate I do think your'e wrong, (what you say about Solksjaer is spot on though I agree) , maybe it's the sudden changes that have got to you i. e, this bi-polar swing in our fortunes, however we don't need to throw the baby out with the bathwater do we.

Whatever we have now and whatever we have to get shut of should be differentiated with a calm mind .

8.) 08 Nov 2020 14:18:28
Well over the top. Last window was a good window but there are still many cracks within the squad. Coleman has been in better form recently but right back is a problem area along with goalkeeper and right wing (we lack width in general) remember we have had years of instability and poor decisions, like other posters have said it will take time. I don't expect us to look a real quality team for another 2 or 3 seasons.

9.) 08 Nov 2020 15:10:01
Lots of rubbish spouted on here again 4 weeks ago everyone was over the moon now 3 losses in row and we are back to last seasons negativity, one window was not going to solve our problems, I’m as angry as anyone else not through the defeats but the fact we have not played with the same intensity and pressing as the first round of matches consistency is what separates the best from the rest, every team in this league is capable of beating each other as we all know, but constancy takes time and winning football matches when not playing well takes time everyone keeps going on about GK but central defence is still massive issue as 2 goals proved yesterday.

10.) 08 Nov 2020 15:59:24
Spot on mate.



02 Sep 2020 18:25:17
Hi eds hope you are all ok and fellow blues. Exciting times if the rumours are to be true, just a question for the eds, is it safe to assume we have got clubs to move some of our out of favour players on with the fact we are spending some cash again? I know its been covered we have to sell to buy but I was expecting more to leave before we started bringing players in? 3 great signings if we can pull them off though, i'm sure most would agree.


{Ed002's Note - Everton need to sell and to reduce the wage bill. That will become the next priority.}

1.) 02 Sep 2020 21:15:32
There’s still a fair bit of time of this window left. I reckon it’s a gamble, yes, but getting the players in early is important and then hopefully shift some big earners off the payroll before the window’s out.



12 Jul 2020 13:46:15
I can't see a way out of this, does anyone else think in the games against Norwich and Leicester that we won, we were also second best? I can't get over how we can be so poor week after week and none of the players even care. I'm not sure how we get out of this as surely nobody would consider signing any of these players that we currently have, with the exception of Richarlison and Digne. Its going to take a few seasons for these contracts to expire, I think we are serious relegation candidates for next year, Ancelotti is always smiling, its clear he doesn't care like these players.


1.) 12 Jul 2020 13:54:17
I’m hoping Carlo is using this time to fully assess how rubbish the team is.

Of the players to play today would only keep:
Digne, Keane, mina, Gordon, kean, Richarlison and dcl.

The rest can all go - but can’t imagine any takers - not even if we offered by 1 get 2 free!

2.) 12 Jul 2020 14:04:23
Richarlison and Digne will go mate, and you carnt blame them.



19 Jan 2020 13:38:11
Question for the eds, if we go into admin, can we cancel our player contracts like Rangers did or will we still be stuck with them? Sorry if this has already been covered but I could not see if this had been discussed.


{Ed002's Note - Everton are not going in to Administration and are not cancelling any contracts.}

1.) 20 Jan 2020 09:03:43
where've you got the idea from we're going into admin?



02 Dec 2019 13:27:32
Does anyone else think our problems rub deeper than the manager? Individual errors and beibg weak when under pressure has been symptematic of the club since the Martinez era, our players don't seem to be able to hold on/ withstand pressure towards the end of games. I just thought 3 at the back was a good move for the next few weeks and the players appeared to ve more settled, but again individual errors cost us. Was a cruel blow that winner though, it is just so Everton, we need a strong defensive performance to get anything from next few games.


1.) 02 Dec 2019 13:55:35
Yes this is more than the manager I agree, these players tend to turn up unexpectedly and surprise the opposition (and fans) they gatecrashed the 'King Power' and almost pulled it off until the Foxes with the help of Marco's changing players
found a way to come out of the match with 3 points.

Marco has to bear a substantial amount of responsibility for this loss.

2.) 02 Dec 2019 14:40:13
group of spineless players mate, wouldn't flinch if any of this crop left us and that's the problem there no attachment.

3.) 02 Dec 2019 15:19:44
Some of the boys put in a really good shift yesterday even Siggy was closing down like a madman at times, for 98% of that game we kept a really good shape defensively. The two subs were needed DCL and Iwobi looked knackered and needed to be replaced. I know its not good enough but this week they were actually trying to win the game and played some positive stuff.

4.) 02 Dec 2019 18:19:59
The 3 at the back worked until Leicester changed shape and went with 2 up top, that is when a tactical manager would have seen that we were being over run and reverted to a flat back 4 and add another body in the central midfield area to shore things up.

5.) 04 Dec 2019 08:59:43
thought sigurdssons positional sense was terrible and wasnt doing the job he was asked, pressing like a mad man is great, if that's what your told to do, if your the 2 shielding a back three you can't press like a mad man, siggy done that therefore leaving tom exposed 9/ 10.

It would be amazing if we could move them on, some have had their moments but the time is right for a change for those players, if we could move those listed on, plus 4 or 5 others, would be nice to have a streamlined squad for a change!

Great player but not sure if it what we need at this time, i think RW and RB must be the priorities this summer. if the price is right though I think we would be stupid not to take him.

Hopefully if we can bring doucoure in from Watford that could help as he has a good engine in midfield and i used to the pace of the premier league. We do lack pace in nearly all depatments though, really hope we can bring a new RB to help with that also.


{Ed002's Note - Zeki Celik (RB) Lille are willing to sell for €20M and don't want to negotiate too far from that amount. The player is 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 have shown an interest.
Santiago Arias (RB) Napoli spoke with Atletico when they were concerned they were going to lose Elseid Hysaj and Everton see preferred choice Celik as too expensive and have enquired. Benfica spoke with Atletico but opted for Gilberto.
Alessandro Florenzi (RB) time at Roma is over so a loan to address the Everton RB issue - he has been used quite often as a RW as well.
Djibril Sidibe (RB) Player wants out but Everton would like to take up their option but would need the player to be persuaded to stay - Monaco had Milan saying they will take him on a loan to buy in January and they could look again in the summer.
Diogo Dalot (RB) loan option if Sidibe leaves.}

I remember Watford fans last year saying he was worth £50 mil and that he belonged in the champions league. he has got to be better than what we have at the moment.

He would be my number one target for us this summer, I really hope they have got another option lined up if true about interest going because a new RB is essential in my opinion.

Yeah totally agree, he is our most important player in my opinion, for me, it is between him and Godfrey for player of the season for us.

I feel it was a good performance, but less confident we can take into the next few games, I feel as though our season just ended.

Best performace from a number of players for the last few weeks, poor finishing and poor defending cost us a big win there in my opinion. I want Holgate/ Keane to be successful, but you cannot make them errors when Kane is on the pitch.

I hope both of them stay, without them, we have very little quality going forward. I though James was great going forward against Spurs, Richy missed chances but link up play and effort was excellent. To be honest, I would it is disappointing this season considering the points we have squandered, even just an extra 6 or 7 points picked couldve made a huge difference, just so typical that we would fall short, I hope we can keep the good players. in the squad.
