Hi Ed have you any info on what players we are looking to add for our RW position thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Malcom (RW) - something was possible, but there will be a great deal of embarrassment after screwing up a deal for Malcom due to delaying a formal approach until a deal with Zenit was being hammered out - I don't know if they were looking to try and get the price reduced or what.
David Neres (RW/LW) has been watched but no approach has been made to Ajax by Everton - two other sides are pushing for a deal now.
Benito Raman (LW/F) watched but concern over the step up, and he is primarily a LW which Everton are overrun with - Everton need a RW and have far better options - he opted for a move to Schalke 04.
Hakim Ziyech (RW) a Ronald Koeman target in the summer of 2016 that Everton could look again to - but could be expensive and certainly there is a reason why others have not been looking to complete a deal.
Albert Gudmundsson (RW) known to Brands and would be a good cost effective addition but AZ do not want to sell
Bertrand Traore (RW) Lyon say thay have been approached by Bayer Leverkusen and BL were reminded of an option another side has on the player - Lyon do not want to sell and Traore is keen to stay and with Cornet available he could get his wish for more game time, unlikely that Everton could strike any sort of deal.
Allan Saint-Maximin (RW) Milan have had several discussions over signing Allan Saint-Maximin but the fixed €40M asking price remains an issue. There have also been talks with Newcastle who continue to look for a RW and he is the emergingfirst choice for them and Crystal Palace who see him as a potential Zaha replacement. Monaco, Everton and Arsenal have all sent scouts to watch him - but Monaco opted for another player and Arsenal opted for Pepe.
Cengiz Under (RW) Roma laughed off a derisory offer from Everton - interest from other sides - one in particular - are far more attractive to the player.}

1.) 02 Aug 2019 12:06:29
Great info as always. Do you know who we are interested in regarding CB. I know you said we enquirer about Llorente but not sure if we went any further with that and also anything to the links with Tomori? Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Everton remain interested in Diego Llorente and Everton have enquired with Chelsea about taking Fikayo Tomori on loan which is odd given Everton has Matthew Pennington. Davide Biraschi interest seems tof have drifted away. A couple of sides are still looking at Djene but others, including Everton do not seem to see the value in him.}

2.) 02 Aug 2019 12:12:18
Thanks great info again. Hopefully we can bite the billet and get Malcom but he looks set on Zenit now. Would of been a good move for him if he wanted minutes to get in the Brazil squad. We are not desperate for a rw as Richarlison Walcott can play that posistion bit it could do with another body but cb is a priority.

{Ed002's Note - Everton need a RW - that is the position they have not addressed.}

3.) 02 Aug 2019 12:54:20
Would you say any Everton deal for Malcom is utterly dead and buried now Ed? .

{Ed002's Note - So you can throw it in my face later?}

4.) 02 Aug 2019 12:55:46
Thanks Ed, I take it there’s nothing in the John Stones rumours?

{Ed002's Note - I am not really the one to ask about rumours - I would not know.}

5.) 02 Aug 2019 18:50:19
Cheers for the update ed.

{Ed002's Note - For me RW was the first thing required.}

6.) 02 Aug 2019 20:06:33
Ignore my last post. But if a moot point now.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 19:45:57
I’ve never thrown anything back in your face ed, so not sure what you’re referring to. Genuinely want to know if in you’re opinion if Everton have messed any chance up and it’s all dead and buried? . Or whether this reported last minute attempt may be salvage the deal.

8.) 03 Aug 2019 11:50:09
Hi Ed, where do you think Everton will play Richarlison? I can see him clearly being the RW when Kean arrives and Bernard in Left is quality for me.

I think another CB and RB are a must.

{Ed002's Note - Richarlison is a LW and was played out of position on the right last season due to the club failing to address their major problem.}



30 Jul 2019 13:50:19
Reports popping up now we have offered Barcelona a deal for Malcom trying to hijack zenits move for him.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 14:20:26
How brilliant would this be? Signing Malcom and Kean on the same day.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 16:37:52
Imagine announcing Keane, Malcolm Gbamin tomorrow. We've all known this moment was coming we just didn't know when!

{Ed025's Note - your just trying to get me excited LH.. :)

3.) 30 Jul 2019 17:00:05
Even better if Gbamin is comes off as well reports say we bid £23m but they want £27.5m so can’t see that causing too much of an issue.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 19:14:29
Are we going to ruin the transfer market again this year?
Can't wait for them to wheel Merson out like a groundhog to make his yearly Everton prediction.

5.) 30 Jul 2019 19:37:56
Not sure about ruining the transfer window but we definitely ruined Sky’s transfer program yesterday when we called them all liars when we denied the second Zaha bid. watching them all backtrack was comedy gold. Lol.

6.) 30 Jul 2019 20:27:09
Who really cares what the idiot merson thinks just interested in brands and Silva option on players and they have done well with signings so far just hope gbamin and kean get signed up.



29 Jul 2019 21:19:18
Seen a quote from sky Italy I know they are not reliable but we will see and sky saying no second bid has been made for Zaha 🤷🏽‍♂️.


1.) 29 Jul 2019 21:57:11
Agree Eddy. According to a statement from Everton, no second bid has been made and that is the end of it
Glad as better out there for half the price.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 22:05:21
Hopefully this puts an end to this zaha matter and we can move on to other targets and if we going to spend big amount of money let's hope it's going to be on a striker.

3.) 29 Jul 2019 22:17:05
I haven't heard zaha say he wants to come to us . just the usual outlets trying to make and sell stories . is he worth it. NO. how many times last season do any of us recall hearing this lad has had a blinder. his choice is Arsenal not us . Palace need to keep him for their supporters and to keep their club in the prem. when I saw the news of what we had offered I thought sorry no chance he would want to come here . just another Bolaise to me.

4.) 29 Jul 2019 23:23:49
Sky sports news broke the story and sky bet took the money. I suppose we were all a bit naive there.



29 Jul 2019 20:55:47
Reports are starting to filter through that kean has signed! 🤷🏽‍♂️.


1.) 29 Jul 2019 21:14:26
Where did ya see that Eddy?

2.) 29 Jul 2019 21:33:14
Twitter of course 😂.

3.) 29 Jul 2019 21:49:41
Come on boys you know by now even if we do sign him it won't be until last knockings of the window.

4.) 29 Jul 2019 23:19:38
Seen a few statements on here, twitter etc. saying that there are ‘better players out there for half the price’. To be clear. I 100% agree with this opinion however . wait for it . I’m struggling to think of more than one who in MY opinion we could sign i.e would come to us. Can I have some ideas / peoples opinions please. (Malcom is excluded) 👍🤔.

{Ed0333's Note - perspective and reality is always welcomed on this site. Good post mate.



25 Jul 2019 22:46:52
Hi Ed are we interested in Zaha or is Just silly season speculation. ? He a good player but for the money I think we could get a couple of positions sorted for that.


{Ed002's Note - Zaha is an option for Everton as he resolves the RW problem and can play as a striker. Against it is the desire of the player to move to Arsenal - who want the player but will move on to Malcom as an alternative.}

1.) 26 Jul 2019 08:34:56
Why pay 80 million for zaha, I'd try and get icardi from inter for 50 million, proven striker, just needs to be sold the everton vision by brands, no other clubs want him and inter want rid for lukaku.

{Ed002's Note - There is zero chance of Icardi joining Everton - nada, none.}

2.) 26 Jul 2019 09:48:52
Why do some fans think because we could potentially afford the price tag on players they would come to us? Icardi would not come to everton, Zaha might even it cost more money the player would come u like others who may be cheaper price wise.

3.) 26 Jul 2019 14:02:23
Ed would he even consider coming to us as he has stated he wants champions league football which we cannot offer him? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Zaha wants to play for Arsenal. The question Everton should consider is would they want a player who is keen to play for another side? And at the asking price, if they were an option next year, there would be no money to be made by Everton. It makes little sense to me for Everton to look to him.}

4.) 26 Jul 2019 14:29:20
Because I'd rather buy better players for less money, seems pretty simple to me. I know inter are a huge club but we got digne, mina, gomes from Barcelona who weren't playing and weren't in great situations and no one wants icardi, Barcelona got griezmann, real got jovetic, no one wants him. I know the chances aren't great but don't think there is a better striker available in the world than him.

{Ed002's Note - No, there is zero chance and there is interest in Icardi - it is simply nonsense.}

5.) 26 Jul 2019 14:29:46
Agreed Ed even though he is a good player. Malcom of he is still there he would be cheaper and younger.

6.) 26 Jul 2019 14:51:52
Although he could potentially be a RW or striker as you say I really don't think he is the solution we need especially at the silly prices being mentioned for the reasons you say above.

His stats aren't exactly brilliant either, his Premier League record is as follows - 177 games, 32 goals and 21 assists. Palace's top scorer with 10 goals last season but not consistent enough for me. I'm not sold on Zaha.

7.) 26 Jul 2019 15:19:12
Icardi is close to world class, have no idea why some blues are that deluded as to think players like Werner, Icardi and Pepe would even look twice at us when we don't have any European football.

8.) 26 Jul 2019 16:55:51
If Icardi is close to world class why are his club looking to sell him?

{Ed001's Note - because he is a horrible gimp and his wife/agent Wanda Nara is a total pain in the rectum and constantly slags off the club in public.}

9.) 26 Jul 2019 18:09:32
I had one of them once😂.

10.) 26 Jul 2019 18:13:51
To the point ed lol.

11.) 27 Jul 2019 23:01:26
Johnny1989/ Eddy - All them years ago did you think Robinho would go to Man City? What a signing cost a fortune but raised there profile just after takeover and attracted other big names the rest is history and will be for years to come if they carry on.
A player like Icardi would come if he was offered a big deal to play in England as if he does well and we don’t then he gets a move to a top 4 side as proven in EPL. And nobody else seems to be wanting him.

07 Oct 2019 22:19:45
I think Marco’s time is up after reading through a lot of fans comments 90+% want him out now and everyone’s talking about Everton next manager. Ed002 and 001 did warn us about him when we tried go seduce him the first time

My list of managers would be
Adi Hutter
Erik ten Hag
Jesse March
Graham potter ( grazem pottererrrr for those who like forge in managers )
Marcelo gallaredo
But the obvious appointment would be van bommel who brands appointed at PSV and has spoken very highly of and of course why would they risk coming to Everton after the turnover of managers in the last 5 years.


1.) 08 Oct 2019 06:32:05
I thought Cocu was Brands man a PSV 🤷🏻‍♂️.

2.) 08 Oct 2019 16:05:39
Graham Potter lol. Why? Cause his team beat a very bad Tottenham after a 2-7 Munich drubbing. His cv is pants and I’m quite sure he’ll be taking Brighton down with him this season. I think Brighton hired cheaply and badly but just another opinion I guess.

3.) 08 Oct 2019 21:29:15
I would suggest that you've not really had a look at what Potter has done as a manager then Dog Puke Peter.

(I'm not saying you guys should go for him by the way, I mean why would he take a backwards step so soon after joining Brighton? ;) I just felt the need to defend Mr Potter a little)

4.) 09 Oct 2019 16:24:17
Yes I have thanks. Manager of Ghana’s ladies team and took a french team who were expected to get promotion up two divisions, was an absolute bore for Swansea last year and Brighton hired the man cause it were the cheapest option and apparently he does well with a crap budget which has been proven many a time not to have worked in the premiership. Thank god he isn’t in the running cause he’s no premiership manager, you will see at the end of the season. A massive no and he won’t be a candidate for the job anyways. Brighton can keep him until they are relegated.

5.) 09 Oct 2019 23:25:17
Well I would now suggest that upon reading your reply Dog Peter Duke, that my initial suggestion was pretty spot on. What you saying Ed01?

{Ed001's Note - he clearly doesn't know who Potter is and is just embarrassing himself mouthing off ignorantly. Potter is one of the bright shining lights of the game and Ostersunds are Swedish and a tiny club that no one expected to ever reach the top flight, let alone qualify for European competition. Potter has done it by embracing new ideas and trying to coach his players to be better.}

6.) 13 Oct 2019 09:58:16
Yes my bad, director at Ghana’s ladies and winning promotion with Östersund that really well known club in Sweden. I am sorry but did you see Swansea last year though (they were rubbish) and ignorant or not I stick to my own opinion that he’s not a premiership manager and will definitely not be in the running for the Everton job. Brighton hired cheaply.

{Ed001's Note - you know nothing about Brighton either clearly. Brighton are not a cheap club, they don't do cheap hires, they paid a large fee to pry Potter from Swansea and are paying him well.}



08 Aug 2019 19:53:16
Hi ed001 could you do a player profile on Iwobi if you ever get a chance? And what’s you view on us signing him? And a big thanks to all the Ed’s over the window everyone appreciates your answers and putting your spare time in to this site 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼.


{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list for you mate. I am not convinced from what I have seen of him in the past though. He did improve last season, but I have never seen anything to suggest he was going to mature into a top class player. Still, it will allow you to drop Walcott, so it is an improvement!}

1.) 08 Aug 2019 23:05:03
Reminds me of a Leon Osman type player of similar ability from what I have seen.



08 Aug 2019 18:48:26
We aimed to go into the new season in a stronger position than when we finished. And we have done that in the positions except CB so if we have injuries Holgate and Gibson will have to step up and it could be the making of them? I think iwobi will surprise a lot of people. His chances created in open play last season are at the top with some of the most creative players in the league. overall a good window with one regret in not getting that cb so let’s get behind the team.




28 Jul 2019 19:41:59
So the targets of the reports are to be believed going into the last two weeks are

Moise Kean strongly linked by a lot of reports

Zaha bid made and rejected will we go back?

Malcom been linked all summer cheaper and younger than Zaha but still a risk.

Gbamin reports of talks/ bid made don’t know a lot about him only what Ed002 has said and seen his stats for 19/ 20 has played at CB now a CDM Can cover RB too so good option for starting position and can cover so looks a
Good signing and two problem areas covered till next year?

Zouma linked as we all know lampard wants him at Chelsea but still could change

Diego Llorente been linked every transfer window since Martinez was here

Rafael Leao look like he’s off to Milan

Bakayoko linked but would be expensive

Neres all reports have gone since first being linked

Traore all reports have gone

Hopefully we can see
Moise kean
Zaha / Malcom
Zouma/ or a cb on loan again



{Ed025's Note good list that eddy, i would take that in a heart beat mate..-

1.) 28 Jul 2019 21:01:25
There will be surprises won’t they Ed which will excite us but at a minimum we need a striker Gueye replacement Zouma replacement. Moise kean is a weird one potential but it’s a huge risk and we clearly are going for a certain type of forward with the links to Leao but don’t know anymore forwards that age with potential. 🤷🏽‍♂️.

{Ed025's Note - it will be an interesting 12 days or so eddy and i cant wait to see who we bring in, i have faith that brands and silva know what they are doing mate..

2.) 28 Jul 2019 21:22:14
If reports are to be believed then Barca's asking price is €50m which is less than what we have just bid for Zaha. Is Zaha worth £80m? Well to Palace he is as he is probably the difference between them staying up and going down which would be costly for them so when thinking about cost of the player don't think is he worth it ability wise it's what he's worth to the selling club who hold the cards as he has a long contract and they don't need to sell. Remember what we paid for Richarlison who hadn't scored a goal or registered an assist since the November before we signed him, was he worth the outlay based on the seasons form? Probably not, but we paid the asking price. One thing's for sure if we had Zaha on one wing and Ricky on the other we are getting plenty of free kicks around the box. Do we go to £80m for Zaha? I can see us doing it with players and add ons as he offers experience of the league that Malcolm doesn't and he improves us down the right. As for the other positions, I'd love Kean up top and Dacoure from Watford to replace Gueye, CB I don't know who we look towards there.

3.) 28 Jul 2019 21:25:00
100%? ed and what this window has shown me is a lot of the everton fans are right behind silva which is good to see as we haven’t had this in a while. Who would
You like to see be brought in Ed.

{Ed025's Note - zouma and malcom or kean would do me mate..

4.) 28 Jul 2019 23:45:19
Would love
Andre Silva (loan)
Bakayoko (loan)

Rather those 4 players that accumulate to 80 million than spend it on 1 player zaha.

{Ed0333's Note - Zaha will no way cost 80 million.

5.) 29 Jul 2019 00:25:35
How much realistically do you think palace are expecting Ed0333?

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t know mate obviously they’ll want as much as possible but if the player starts playing up they may have to settle for less.



26 Jul 2019 19:46:28
Hi again Ed Moise Kean being linked to us and arsenal with €40mil and they want a buy back inserted any truth Ed? Thanks again.


{Ed002's Note - There are a lot of interested sides.}

I would honestly take the risk on Neres Lozano bergwin Traore. But on the other hand brands and silva look like they Know what they are doing everything they have done since they have been here they have done well so fingers crossed feet back and watch them work there magic.

If the latest bid of £70mil plus Tosun and McCarthy has been rejected I think we should bow walk away and look at other targets. £50-60mil would be able to buy a very good young RW with future sell on too.


{Ed025's Note - im with you eddy..

100% Howie the clubs best signing for year Marcel Brands hasn’t improved our club since he’s been here hope he’s continues to do that for a long time. Just hope our fans give his ideas and silvas time
And not jump on them when. Signing takes time to adjust to the PL and The North West.

Oh no Ed not Moyes. If Marco does go and I think it’s when rather than if. Moshiri should leave it down to brands and let him do what he’s been paid for. Hopefully it will be a ten hag or van bommel or someone from the Ralph rangnick line of managers. Our club needs to pick which way it’s looking to go. Us as fans need to give the club time. I know it’s sounds stupid but using the academy ( if the layer is ready ) will buy any manager a little bit of extra time. All we want to see is 100% effort from players and managers and progression from the previous season.

Hi Ed what’s your view on the situation? Do you think silva will be gone soon? Who do you think will replace him if he does go? Also who would you want to replace him?


{Ed002's Note - The problem is that he has failed to address the lop-sidedness of the team and tactics are not returning any decent or consistent level of success. For me I think they will hang on a bit - as for a replacement it would not be a surprise to see David Moyes return. Advice will be for others I suspect.}

Ed025 who’s next on the list if we don’t get Zouma?

My look on it is if Chelsea won’t sell Zouma we will pay the money for Doucoure and then try for a CB on loan. But I does seem strange to buy that many midfielders bless he is changing formation this season to 4-3-3
Sidibe Keane Mina/ new CB. Digne
Gbamin Gomes Doucoure/ delph
Zaha/ Walcott kean/ DCLRicharlison/ Bernard.


{Ed025's Note - i would guess at tomori on loan or even cahill at a push eddy, but thats pure speculation on my part mate..

Would of like if is to complete our cb signing before maguire went incase his prices makes all the other clubs value there cb’s higher now.
