Newcastle offered 22.5mil plus longstaff for digne according to SSN.


1.) 05 Jan 2022 22:26:38
According to Fabrizio Romano there’s no chance he’s going to Newcastle.

Apparently will go this window and probably to a premier league team.

He’s usually very good with his info.

2.) 05 Jan 2022 22:34:45
Yeah he is Dan. The fact a player would be coming in as well makes the news look less likely as well but SSN don't usually report things that have no basis.

You never know though they might just be reporting it to get people making bets on sky betting.

3.) 05 Jan 2022 22:44:30
Could be right regards betting angle Chris.

Also by them saying Longstaff involved - a player Rafa previously interested in - makes it seem a bit more believable.

Could all be genuine - but if player doesn’t want move highly unlikely would happen

Will be interesting to see what the other supposed interested clubs come up with as an offer of the Newcastle one is genuine.

4.) 05 Jan 2022 22:45:32
Think I’d probably take that to be honest.

5.) 05 Jan 2022 22:56:10
Swap deals aren’t common so I’d be surprised if it happened. The problem is every man and his dog are linked with Newcastle at the moment - bit like us for the last few seasons as people knew there was money to spend.

6.) 05 Jan 2022 23:23:26
An hour later and now SSN reporting we made an offer for Longstaff ?

Got to love transfer season, nobody really knows what transfers will or won’t happen.

7.) 05 Jan 2022 23:44:40
Is longstaff even any good?

8.) 06 Jan 2022 00:08:02
No but neither is what we have.

9.) 06 Jan 2022 00:11:51
No idea BD but think Rafa rates him from his time at Newcastle.

Not sure how we’re going to recruit any more players though without any other outgoings as sure Ed002 previously said only had space for 1 more player.

So with 2 signed and Digne on his way doesn’t look like room for anyone else unless we move others on.

Any of the Ed’s know if we have any other potential sales lined up?

{Ed002's Note - Everton has a bunch of players available and contracts running out. Something can be done with Tosun this month but Everton will need to accept whatever Besiktas off. Allan would be available this month if fit but the club may find it difficult to find a buyer, so it seems unlikely. Delph might be available this month but it would depend on an addition in all probabilty.}

10.) 06 Jan 2022 09:38:43
Longstaff is a very strong midfielder, an improvement on what we have at Everton.

11.) 06 Jan 2022 13:41:55
My Newcastle mate raves about Longstaff and says he would be gutted to lose him
There are reports we have bid for him but it’s not linked to any deal with Digne
Also a few rumours about Vecino who’s contract is coming to an end in the summer not sure if this is more to do with old links being resurrected.

12.) 06 Jan 2022 17:39:08
Take Longstaff all day long when you see some of ours.

13.) 07 Jan 2022 07:29:43
I'd be shocked if Digne ends up at Newcastle. I'm still hoping he might stay, but seems unlikely, he's not had the best couple of seasons but then again, Everton haven't been great either.

{Ed025's Note - i hope he leaves tomtom, it will free up money to buy someone who actually wants to be here mate..

14.) 07 Jan 2022 11:04:36
Yeh I see your point, but I like the guy, does he want to leave or is it just a clash of personalities with Rafa? If he doesn't want to play for us I agree we should sell ASAP.

15.) 07 Jan 2022 13:18:37
Longstaff would be a replacement for Allan, who hasn't got the energy required for the Premiership.



17 Dec 2021 06:26:44
Dinamo Kiev manager announced that Mykolenko has left for Everton. With us having to sell to buy and Digne's lack of involvement recently you'd assume he's off. Fee for Mykolenko rumoured to be 20mil, we wouldn't be spending that on a cover player. Hopefully we get more than that for digne and save some in the wages too.

Tbh I can't say I'm sad to see digne go, his heart hasn't been in it for a long time now. His forward and defensive play has been really poor this season and last season.


1.) 17 Dec 2021 08:03:13
I think Newcastle will take him.

2.) 17 Dec 2021 08:23:56
spot on mate i think that is great business from Rafa. my brother and me can't stand him anymore after that first season he just lost interest. can't defend, can't take a player on, always cuts back, and when he does cross its usually always blocked by the first man! Mykolenko looks like he could develop into a great player young fast aggresive good pace like to take a player on. hopefully this is the start of some smart recruitment.

3.) 17 Dec 2021 08:35:40
Can Newcastle sign Iwobi as well…. please.

4.) 17 Dec 2021 10:48:46
I'd throw Iwobi in as a freebe.

5.) 17 Dec 2021 11:26:39
The kid's having his medical apparently, Chris. This is what we need. Reasonably priced players, deals done quickly and quietly for players hungry to learn and succeed. Look at the Czech boys moyes got at hammers, bargains them.

6.) 17 Dec 2021 11:59:18
Anybody with a name like that is welcome at my club. To be known as Blue Myk from now on.

7.) 17 Dec 2021 12:50:16
With Ukraine on their winter break, makes sense to get him through any isolation etc coming into the country before he can officially sign. Hopefully Digne will still bring a decent fee so we can bring another in with the money, can't see us doing this unless we already had a firm offer though.

8.) 17 Dec 2021 13:17:18
It's nice to see the club get deals done early and not wait until deadline day. You'd assume Digne is lined up to go somewhere. Anyone know? Ed02?

{Ed002's Note - Beck has spoken to a number of clubs about Digne and I guess there is an outside chance Juventus may bite as they have an issue with how Sandro has been performing. The issue is that clubs will likely look for a loan with an option to buy as January is not the ideal time for transfers.}

9.) 17 Dec 2021 15:18:16
Saddens me how quickly we turn our back on players. Not long ago he was touted (by the supporters) as the best left back in the Premiership. Now we’re getting all excited at spending close to 20m on a player nobody has ever heard of.

10.) 17 Dec 2021 17:02:28
It’s not that quick Bob, he’s been underperforming for a good while now.

11.) 17 Dec 2021 18:32:19
There’s no one player bigger than the club.

12.) 17 Dec 2021 18:36:14
I’m getting giddy that we might sign a player early in the window, it’s unheard of!

{Ed025's Note - its just not us mate..

13.) 17 Dec 2021 19:04:14
Fans doing it again believing everything they read.
Do you recall “our kids must be rubbish” and everyone believing that crap.
If you want to know how good he is, just watch the calibration of the clubs that come in for him.
To listen to you lot you would think he was the only player going through a dip in form. But hey Rafa doesn’t like him so he must be crap.

14.) 17 Dec 2021 20:43:07
Might need to check your own calibration Woburn mate.

15.) 17 Dec 2021 21:52:26
Yea that should have said calibre JB. Speed typing with fat fingers, never good??.

16.) 17 Dec 2021 21:55:49
Are fans believing everything they read Woburn? I haven't read anything about digne's form being atrocious. but I do believe by eyes with which I have seen his form being atrocious for a sustained period of time.

17.) 17 Dec 2021 20:26:50
Ed002 you’re very knowledgeable when it comes to transfers. Is this mykolenko rumour true? Been reported in several different publications.

If it is true are you aware of how we are going to fund it as we’re already in a precarious position with ffp and spending just shy of £20m doesn’t appear to be in keeping with what we need to do regards ffp.

18.) 19 Dec 2021 15:27:30
Fabrizio confirmed it and he's had his medical too.

19.) 20 Dec 2021 02:36:43
Ed002 - I have the same/ similar question as Gingerdan above.

You said in another post that EFC would have submitted their FFP figures to the EPL in June last year

Maybe not 100% related but it appears that, as a result, we could only spend 1.7 million in the summer transfer window

Now, with no other FFP submissions since June we are supposed to be spending 20 million on this left back and being associated with many others

What could have happened between the summer transfer window and the one coming up that would make this change possible?

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what you are on about. I have never said Everton could only spend £1.7M last summer.}

20.) 20 Dec 2021 12:33:40
I never said you did ED

I said that you had said Everton would have submitted their FFP returns last June including the year ending 30th June 2021

We ended up only spending last summer 1.7m and a lot of people, not you per say, have said it was related to FFP difficulties

What could have changed since then that would allow us to spend a lot more this January such as the approx 20 million this new proposed left back is said to be costing


{Ed002's Note - Ask whoever told you that Everton could only spend £1.7M last summer.}

21.) 20 Dec 2021 12:45:00
I thought I'd go to the expert i. e. you ED

Have you not said in the past that Everton have FFP difficulties

Simple question . Do they still have them and, if so, how bad


{Ed002's Note - Yes Everton have FFP issues and they are very bad.}

22.) 20 Dec 2021 13:36:02
Thanks Ed
I appreciate it's not completely clear and that you are giving us the best info you can

Many thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - It is perfectly clear - Everton are in a financial mess and have FFP issues.}

23.) 21 Dec 2021 12:29:06
@bw one thing that would slightly factor in is that ffp is a rolling 3 year period and while we're still massively up against it, we did just replace a 90m+ summer with a 1.7m one in the most recent 3 years whenever it is next reported.

{Ed002's Note - It is two years at the moment and Everton are in a huge fiancial mess and losing vast amounts of money.}



24 May 2021 14:17:22
So out of contract this summer we have:


Olsen loan comes to an end.

I have heard Bernard and mina want out, can't blame Bernard for wanting to play. James will probably leave, barely plays anyway.

I really don't think we will be able to ship anyone else out. Can't see who would want them and the players wouldn't get their stupid wages anywhere else.

This mess will take years to untangle.


1.) 24 May 2021 18:41:20
Should make good money from Mina or keep him, Bernard will be a nominal amount but he's on high wages so it's upto him to reduce his demands if he wants a move.
Need a decent replacement for Mina as he's our best CB. Could do with selling Keane as he's not getting any younger and isn't a leader so can't be paired with a young CB. Also if keane is in the team we are automatically 20yds further back as a team.

2.) 25 May 2021 11:28:07
Kenny will also likely move on.

3.) 25 May 2021 18:59:38
Iwobi could leave on loan I guess?



23 Dec 2020 21:59:22
Can any of the Eds please please give us some news about a league 1 side being in for Davies?


{Ed025's Note - i have not heard anything on that chris, but i cant see him aiming that high mate..

1.) 24 Dec 2020 12:49:27
In local paper down here in Plymouth Herald they are looking at him to improve their under 23s.

2.) 24 Dec 2020 13:49:20
I think that you are being to hard on Davies. Yes he as not progressed like we would have liked but he gives his all every time he plays unlike a lot of our squad who are stealing money from the club. Davies is a good backup and squad player.
I would get rid of Siggy, Gomes, Bernard, Tosun, Bolasie, Delph, Besic, before Davies.

3.) 24 Dec 2020 12:23:06
Ed, I honestly don't see what others see in Tom including Carlo, because I have seen (like everyone else) players with more to their game than him, getting benched loaned out sold for peanuts maybe and yet here we are scratching our heads in bewilderment .

4.) 25 Dec 2020 19:44:14
People say they can't see what fans see in Davies I'm at a Loss at how quick fans are to jump all over the kids back I even seen one on twitter blame him for the loss against Utd the issue with a lot of our fans is they pick a scapegoat and that is it no matter what he does he is dammed my view is if Carlos sees something in him and he's picked he will have my full support as will any player who wears the royal blue jersey as that's what Everton fans used to do it seems a lot of fans have forgotten that.



01 Oct 2020 20:22:43
Second Godfrey bud of 25mil plus add ons been accepted apparently.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 00:53:52
Don’t really watch motd I just focus on us, how good is this lad.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 06:29:13
On first glance he looks like a slightly quicker/ stronger version of Holgate. Excellent passing range as well but time will tell I suppose.

Decent signing imo.

Rondon starting again, what is Rafa playing at seriously.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 14:18:21
3 5 2 looks like, maybe thinks DCL and Rondon will make better target men than Ricky cutting in.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 14:34:47
How do you work 352 from that line up?



11 Jan 2022 14:49:11
If Holgate goes, even if on loan, does anyone know if we are looking to bring in another CB or get Branthwaitte to play more? Personally I hope it's the later.


{Ed025's Note - we need to bring in a new one chris, as much as i like branthwaite he is young and inexperienced and will need someone along side him i feel mate..

1.) 11 Jan 2022 15:16:25
Yeah I get your point Ed but I'm looking at it from a money point of view as well. Even if Holgate went I'd still rather a CM to a CB.

{Ed025's Note - we do need energy in midfield chris i agree, maybe swap holgate for declan rice?.. :)

2.) 11 Jan 2022 15:58:31
That would put a lot of pressure on the young man. Though saying that I would like to see him and Godfrey form a strong partnership. Perhaps once and if we get safe they could play the remaining games, ready for next season.

3.) 11 Jan 2022 19:13:06
Id take dunk from Brighton he is a leader and a fighter ??.

4.) 11 Jan 2022 19:22:18
Agree, Woburn. It's definitely a partnership that could play together for years to come. I'd like to see them play together the minute we are safe too mate, build for the following season immediately.



06 Jan 2022 05:35:12
I've seen a report, not sure how true, that Rafa and moshri are at odds over signing coutinho. Moshri wants him, Rafa doesn't. Kind of makes sense to me Coutinho is the type of player we have brought in of recent. Older, highly paid, no sell on value, fell out of favour at a big club.

If this report is true it is a big tick for Rafa in my book. Coutinho is not the type of player we need to grow as a club. He's the stop gap type of player that we have gone to far to often over the past few years that have collectively crippled our club financially.


1.) 06 Jan 2022 06:49:33
If true Chris but I wouldn't believe everything you read

Also not sure that we have gone a lot for that type of player

Yes, CA went for James and Allan and Rafa has gone for Townsend and Rondon but a lot of our failures in the market have been the right age but haven't made it at Everton Lookman, Vlasic, Iwobi, Klassen, Kean spring to mind. Even Tosun, Gbamin, Mina have been the right profile

I think our problem has been more of no strategy and we don't know who has made each decision which is why we ended up with 3 No 10's and now look to be overstocking on wingers if the rumours about O'Neill are to be believed

Where we get the money to pay the likes of Couthino's salary or O'Neil's fee is anyone's guess or it's just idle gossip?

2.) 06 Jan 2022 09:27:38
Exactly bw! Coutino! A. The Club are not that FFP deep. B. Moshri's money isn't Moshri's money or/ suspicion (on my part) C. 'Someone' other than Moshri is really pulling the strings.

3.) 06 Jan 2022 10:00:28
Saw that as well Chris, lazy journalism mostprobably, on the money side maybe Usmanov has more say then what is believed.

4.) 06 Jan 2022 10:00:55
I think you are right DFS but that means there are 2 idiots in charge. Mr someone else, let's call him Mr U, pulling the strings and Moshiri who just doesn't understand either football or how to get Mr U to make rational decisions.



16 Dec 2021 18:38:46
I am the only one dreading tonight? With the injuries we have it could be really embarrassing.


1.) 16 Dec 2021 18:45:15
With you there Chris mate, but you never miracles happen.

2.) 16 Dec 2021 18:53:52
I think we all are mate. Just seen the team for tonight though and it’ll be good to see the youth get a run out.

3.) 16 Dec 2021 19:15:21
Well they will certainly get run around that’s for sure. Don’t think any of that midfield are noted for their tackling?



12 Dec 2021 17:51:51
Rafa benitez needs to hang his head in shame. I can only assume he is trying to get himself sacked and get a payday.


{Ed014's Note - I can’t imagine why he’d want to stay, was nuts taking the job!

1.) 12 Dec 2021 17:57:28
This team is set up to soak up pressure. WE ARE PLAYING CRYSTAL PALACE!

2.) 12 Dec 2021 17:59:02
Was local to him ed. Says it all really. Took it out of convince.

{Ed014's Note - crazy decision if that was the reason.

I think Allan's contract runs out at the end of the season, so maybe just looking to cash in while we still have a chance to. I do understand your point though, he will definitely be missed.


{Ed002's Note - No. I have explained the situation already.}

Well that is they're moaning about. 2 up top. 1 is Dom who plays high up, the other is rondon who has a ball a chain round both ankles. Do t play rondon put another CM on.

13 Jan 2022 08:16:42
Yeah I agree. I think 2 first choice CMs should be our main transfer target.
