Lots of rumours about incoming players. Is there much about any outgoings? I'm struggling to find any.


1.) 14 Jun 2019 20:39:04
Bolasie is supposedly interesting tranzonspor Besiktas and Galatasaray
Besiktas along with CSKA are also supposedly interested in Vlasic
Besiktas also showed interest in Tosun but he’s had a knock since then
Whether any of these pan out or hold weight is yet to be seen could just be journos trying to push news and click bait.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 23:56:30
Surely after his loan an more first team experience Vlassic with his versatility would be a better option over Walcott? The lad can play both wings an 10 cover at least 1 sub for 2”3 positions opens the bench a bit more at least.

3.) 15 Jun 2019 01:34:21
Does my head in with Turkish teams. They never buy. Just want loans.

4.) 15 Jun 2019 07:56:39
Rumour has it we in advanced talks with David neres watched him on YouTube out of all the players we linked with this is the one that would excite us blues pacy knows where the goal is and can make that vital pass hope we can get him.

5.) 15 Jun 2019 08:18:57
I agree Vlasic could offer something and is versatile but according to reports Vlasic is the one pushing for a move.
We will have to see what magic Brands does over the coming weeks.

6.) 15 Jun 2019 17:01:46
Vlasic dosent want to come back to us plus I don't see where he would fit in he dosent have the pace to play on the wing so we can forget about that option his only position I can see him fitting in at would be number 10 the position sigurdsson plays and he ain't getting in ahead of him and vlasic won't want to be an understudy to sigurdsson think we should cash in on him and look to strengthen other areas of team with his fee.

7.) 18 Jun 2019 11:11:26
I read a story in the Echo about Vlasic. Apparently the way Everton treated him under RK and Big Sam has really turned him off the club. He was team captain for a few games while on loan and is a fan favourite according to the report and has zero interest in playing for Everton again.



30 Apr 2019 12:49:02
What do people think about our realistic chances to sign Zouma? IMO if we could only have one signing over the summer I would choose him. The defence has been great over the past couple of months and he seems to have a great partnership with MK. I think it would be a shame and a real problem for the team if he went. I know Mina could step in but I think it would take him some time to gel with the team in a way which Zouma has now.

Would he want the move? Would chelsea consider it with the transfer ban?

Also just seen that Tom Davies has signed a new contract which is really great news. I didn't know he was only 20, I thought he was much older. TBH I thought he might have been looking elsewhere to get some more game time, I hope he gets a lot more playing time next season. A real star for the future.


{Ed002's Note - Everton want to buy Kurt Zouma and if they were to make a good offer to Chelsea and the player were interested in the move then Chelsea would not stand in his way.}

1.) 30 Apr 2019 17:12:02
Cheers Ed has been great this season for us formed a partnership with Keane what would be a good offer in Chelsea’s eyes thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - I would think something over £30M.}

2.) 30 Apr 2019 19:15:23
I'd be happy with that. If we bought him and then had Keane, mina, Zouma and Holgate. We wouldn't need to buy another CB for 4 or 5 years.

3.) 30 Apr 2019 21:04:48
I would be made up going into season with them 4 cbs.

4.) 30 Apr 2019 22:48:12
Love to see both Zouma and Gomez next season. Hopefully we can get some funds together with a few sales from unwanted players. Our wage bill should certainly be lower as we loose a few with contracts expiring.

5.) 01 May 2019 08:15:07
If we made Gomes and Zouma permanent and got in an out and out striker I’d be more than happy with that in the summer.

6.) 01 May 2019 10:27:43
£30 million would be a great price in today's market. Slot straight in and up n running. Fingers crossed for this one and gomes.

7.) 01 May 2019 22:10:43
I am surprised we haven't already agreed terms with Chelsea for zouma. Lots of teams but loan players they have during the season. Hopefully we get him. Big strong fast sensible defender.

{Ed025's Note - i imagine a lot will depend on the result of their appeal against their transfer embargo geoff..

8.) 02 May 2019 13:11:12
Geoff, the same could be said about Gomes. Clearly no future at Barcelona, if we want him and he wants to stay with us then surprised it’s not been done already, as you say other teams have signed loaning signings (Jimenez at wolves) .
Maybe just the sceltic in me but the fact we haven’t secured his services permanently suggests to me he’s off elsewhere.

9.) 02 May 2019 15:39:03
There are other factors that come into it GingerDan. some players/ clubs don't want to discuss mid season and would rather concentrate on playing/ planning.
I am sure we are in the box seat for Gomes but it could also be Barcelona looking to squeeze as much out of the deal.

Gbamin out for 8 weeks. Seems schniderlin has will be playing. Hopefully Delph is back to full fitness soon to give us some options.


1.) 27 Aug 2019 21:56:54
Get him hypnotized before kick off into thinking goals are on the halfway line, might get a forward pass with a bit of luck.



12 Aug 2019 21:45:32
Henry O completed a permanent move to Monaco.




06 Jul 2019 08:54:22
Does anyone know if any preseason games are televised? I know the club put them on the club website last year, I can't find anything.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 00:00:21
They aren’t doing pay per view this year Chris. You need to sign up for a membership. It’s £30 a year I believe and offers all the pre season games, exclusive content, a welcome pack with a badge and car sticker ect and priority for tickets.

All the info is available on the EFC Website mate.



13 May 2019 12:42:47
Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I cannot find a thread on it.

What is the actual issue with Henry O's visa/ work permit?

Does he have a criminal record or something like that?

If he doesn't, I don't get why he wouldn't be allowed to work in the country. He already has a job which would involve him paying a fortune in Tax.

Anyone know?


{Ed002's Note - He doen't meet the eligibility criteria.}

1.) 13 May 2019 13:07:40
What does that actually mean though? Do you know which Criteria he fails on?

Is there a way round it? Or will he just never be able to play in UK?

{Ed002's Note - The Work Permit requirements:

The player needs a minimum of four points and summary goes something like this:
- The value of the transfer fee (alone) that is to be paid is between the top 75% and 100% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 3 points
- The value of the transfer fee being paid for the player is between 50% and 75% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 2 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is in the top 25% of the top 30 earners at the club - 3 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is between 50% and 75% of all the top 30 earners at the club - 2 points
- Subjectively, the player’s current club is in a recognised "top" league and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point
- The player’s existing club has played in the group stages or onwards of the Champions League, Europa League or the Copa Libertadores within the last 12 months and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point

2.) 13 May 2019 14:00:01
My goodness Chris. If paying tax was the only criteria for residency in this country, half of the country would be booted out 😂😂.

3.) 13 May 2019 16:22:18
Hi ed. Not sure if or when rules changed but did there not used to be something about playing so many times for your country?

{Ed002's Note - At one time that was relevant.}

4.) 14 May 2019 19:21:17
Thanks Ed, I had no idea it was anything like that. I thought it was standard immigration law stuff that was blocking him.



25 May 2018 23:28:48
Not been on the site for a while. Who actually wants Silva? I don't get what the big deal is. I think with his record we are looking at aiming for 8th again, doesn't really show any ambition. What does everyone else think?


1.) 26 May 2018 00:50:40
Well I would take Silva, probably one of the few who do.

2.) 26 May 2018 01:23:40
I want him. Seems to be very well thought of. Young, forward thinking coach. Plus we should have faith in Brands who is apparently here to forsee our future. If Brands backs Silva I will too until proven otherwise. Time to be positive again, any manager is going to be a risk to some extent.

3.) 26 May 2018 07:51:57
I'm a big fan of his - looking forward to him joining us asap!

{Ed025's Note - i want him as well BT..

4.) 26 May 2018 09:04:20
As long as the DoF and the board exercise due diligence, research all the best options available and decide he is the man to bring success to our club then I fully support the appointment.
We will not all agree but we cannot have the corrosive atmosphere at games undermining the manager and team spirit!

5.) 26 May 2018 09:23:06
Take a look at the poll on here Chris. You're in the minority.

Looking at twitter and Facebook he's also clearly the main choice as well.

Have a little read about his career it's pretty interesting and he's clearly an ambitious and driven man. Might settle some nerves and give you a bit of confidence.

6.) 26 May 2018 17:41:42
I have my reservations about Silva. At the end of the day its down to Brands and the management so will just have to wait and see.

7.) 27 May 2018 00:00:34
Does any one know the past managers that Brands has had a saying in appointing I've seen Ronald k . And Martin j are two of many that have not been the best in the past do we have a full list of appointments before we all get to excited.

8.) 27 May 2018 00:01:32
Let's face it we finished 8th, hardly a good advert for a european winning manager. We are in turmoil, hardly a good advert for a top manager looking for his next club to win silverware with. I am surprised at some of the names who have shown an interest in us. Even more surprised that we have got Brands. We have and that is good. I would take Silva too. This time let's not call for heads after 12 games. Let's back the DOF, the manager, and the board for getting them. The time to call for heads is at the end of the season which I doubt we will be doing. Once we get the new manager in we can watch with interest who goes and who comes. I feel a good summer coming up. COYB.

I don't think anyone wanted rojo, I certainly didn't. And since when was Zaha 100mil?

I do think we have done well this window but I also think the squad is weaker than last season.

Gana gone, yes we have replaced him but with Delph on the decline and an untested gbamin. Zouma gone and no one in. A right back on loan who I assume is just back up? I thought Coleman was great the back end of last year. And an untested teenage striker and possibly iwobi.

I am not slating MB or MS at all I think they have done a great job at addressing some issues with the squad. I just think with Zouma gone and no replacement it leaves a massive hole in the team and a lot of pressure for mina to perform.


{Ed025's Note - yeah mina has to step up chris..

Even if it is one Morgan in one Morgan out we would still have too many. In reality we need 4. It would mean benching 2 new players and Davies not getting a look in.

I think situations like this will back to bite teams like palace who massively over price players. People have said the don't need to sell and don't need the money, but eventually the players contract will run down and you would assume they won't sign again.

I suppose it gets teams like palace the most out of their players before they absolutely have to sell.


{Ed025's Note - i think your right chris..

I'd love to build up from the academy, I thinks it's the future. Selling players for a profit means the club can invest and get stronger each year. Isn't that similar to what Athletico Mardid have done?

The problem with Silva is that he has his 'style of play' and won't deviate from that. No matter what players he has at his disposal.

Silva seems to play his way with, whatever players he has, even if they don't suit the system/ tactics. I assume this due to his lack of experimating with formation, tactics and squad selection.

We need a manager that can get the best from the players he has and change the system, style of play, tactics to fit the players. Whilst bringing players from the academy through and reinvesting profits.


{Ed002's Note - Many clubs have built very good academy systems.}

Hi Ed02, isn't the point of a DoF to be Moshri's advisor? If he has an advisor and a 3rd party would you assume he doesn't trust brands?

Or have I just got the DoF role completely wrong?


{Ed002's Note - No. The Director of Football or Technical Director would not normally advice an owner. He would usually be responsible for all of the teams at the club, ladies, first team, youth teams and scouting would report in to him. The focus is normally on the liaison with scouts and helping the first team achieve what they need. If the team is in a good place they should not be discussing transfers much.}

I think you need to learn the definition of could. It means I don't know. Hence the second sentence you have quoted.

I wanted him out GJ. But I've changed my tune. My blue tinted specs have shattered and I've realised the squad just isn't good enough and is worse off than last season.

I'm really deflated tbh.

Hopefully when injuries come back there will be some improvements. But I can't see any notable improvements until after the next transfer window, possibly even next 2 transfer windows.

I didn't want any of them. I didn't think any of them had proven they were a top 6 manager but as others have stated I didn't know any realistic options.
