With Gerrard leaving Rangers to go to Villa is this the ideal time for Duncan to get some managerial experience and throw his name into the hat for the Rangers job?


{Ed002's Note - No, they are in talks with someone else.}

1.) 11 Nov 2021 12:46:58
No worries Ed just thought as an ex Rangers man he may have seen it as a potential opportunity to get some managerial experience.

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt they would look to him and will certainly have preferred choices.}

2.) 11 Nov 2021 15:37:31
He didn't have the greatest of times up their to be fair.

I do think if he’s ever going to be Everton manager (or top flight manager) . He’s going to have to leave and earn his stripes at a lower league club first, he’s been passed over a couple of times now.



20 Oct 2021 18:40:43
Apparently DCL has suffered an injury setback ?‍♂️

What a nightmare time we’re having with injuries.

Hope Rafa gives youth a chance.


1.) 20 Oct 2021 19:04:16
He has too. Rondon proved he's not up to it. We play on the counter so why not play them.

{Ed025's Note - lets hope so chris..

2.) 20 Oct 2021 20:27:07
I posted a few days ago saying DCL is starting to become injury prone, I hope I'm wrong.



06 Oct 2021 11:33:43
Worryingly seen a rumour about Aaron Ramsey coming to us with Allan going the other way.
Hoping this is some nonsense that’s been made up.
Not sure why we’d want to split up doucore and Allan who are working so well in the middle of the park.
Also not sure why we’d want to swap a combative defensive midfielder for Ramsey who doesn’t play that way?


{Ed002's Note - Aaron Ramsey (CM) will be 31 by January and has been available for a while. Juventus are willing to release him from his contract at any time and his agent and a better known third party are working hard to find him a new home - the problem will be agreeing a salary package for a player who is now become a bit part player at Juventus. He may well have proven to be a reasonable Wijnaldum replacement at his best but those days appear gone and I am not aware of Liverpool looking to him but the supporters keep asking. May be difficult to find a home for but Juventus had hoped Paratici would be interested in taking him to Spurs - but that was not the case. There was an enquiry from West Ham, possibly at the prompting of his agent. His agent has more recently spoken with Everton who are hovering around FFP issues and need to reduce the wage bill and utilise the cheaper or free options available to them (like Begovich, Townsend and Gray this summer) and face work to extend contracts of some of the 8 who will out contract in the summer. If something could be done to keep the wages reasonable he may provide a solution for them in midfield. Newcastle have been approached by his agent but have no need for such a player although they fear losing Sean Logstaff in the summer. Juventus were quoting €10M for him in the summer - now they want his wages off the books. If they cannot find a club to pick the player up as a Free Agent, they could end up negotiating to buy him out of the rest of his contract and he could end up in a similar position to Jack Wilshere.}

1.) 06 Oct 2021 11:51:22
Cheers for the comprehensive reply Ed.

I know it’s a tricky question but could you see Everton wanting this to happen with Allan going the other way?
Losing Allan doesn’t make much sense to me.

{Ed002's Note - They won't be able to release him from his contract until another club is found, else they need to buy him out of it. That is why they are allowing him to speak with other clubs.

Allan (CM/DM) The player has shared a desire to return to Italy and Everton are looking at options for midfield over the next two windows and have a couple of players in mind. The sale of Allen would depend on the price which is falling away and clubs accepting a player who will by then be 31. It might be tough to find a buyer.}



27 Aug 2021 22:56:05
Some interesting (Diaz, edouard) and depressing (Rondon) rumours flying around regarding who we may be looking to sign - however they all appear to be attacking players.
I know we could potentially do with some extra cover in that area but surely Rightback is a much more pressing area we should look to recruit first but not much mention of any options.
Any of the Ed’s know if we’ve got any interest in any right backs? Seeing Dalot from Utd may be available on loan with obligation to buy - we were linked with him last season any idea if we’d be in for him again?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained the Patterson, Aarons options as you know. I am not aware of anything new.}

1.) 28 Aug 2021 08:57:27
Looks like it could be Maitland Niles from Arsenal on loan,
not a bad signing in my opinion. Would be happy with window if we got him, Diaz and Edouard.

2.) 28 Aug 2021 11:35:24
Thanks for the reply Ed, going to be an interesting few days ahead. Hopefully we can move some on and get some in to replace them. Time for Brands to earn his money.

3.) 28 Aug 2021 20:07:22
Personally think Rondon would be ok we want someone who will back up DCL Rondon is a handful and would not be to much of worry filling in for him it’s a cheap way of filing a gap that is not a priority, Kean never played or did King so what’s the point in spending money on a position that Rondon could do a job for 12 months.



26 Aug 2021 15:20:22
Any of the Ed’s know if any substance to moise kean back to juventus with us looking at McKennie coming the other way?


{Ed025's Note - i cant see it dan mate..

El Ghazi deal looks like will be completed today.
Fingers crossed it’s a loan.
If we spend £15m on him will be crazy considering we need reinforcements elsewhere.


{Ed025's Note - i can live with a loan dan..

1.) 12 Jan 2022 14:57:15
Me too Ed.
As other posters have already said - spending £15m on him in this window would be madness considering we ideally need defensive and midfield reinforcements this window and not another winger!

{Ed025's Note - spot on dan..

2.) 12 Jan 2022 15:19:30
Some people are never happy.

3.) 12 Jan 2022 15:22:37
Just seen it’s a loan - thank goodness!
Fabrizio Romano reporting and he’s usually spot on.

4.) 12 Jan 2022 15:34:00
Just read on line that it’s Mr Moshiri rather than Rafa who is wanting to get El Gahzi on loan for the rest of the season. If any truth, then who is in charge of transfers?

{Ed025's Note - i wish i knew brian but it certainly should not be farhad mate..

5.) 12 Jan 2022 16:27:12
Would you be happy spending 15m on a player dor a position we don't need, Uran? Especially when you consider money is a bit tight for the foreseeable. A loan means extra bodies for the last leg of the season with no obligation. I haven't seen any options to buy being mentioned so far.

6.) 12 Jan 2022 18:11:56
BP I already knew it was a loan deal when I made my comments that why I said “some people are never happy “
I am sure he will be a great loan signing for us plus he’s a wide player that can score goals, so pleased we have secured him until the end of the season, maybe one more midfielder to come in and that should do, then watch us climb the table!

7.) 12 Jan 2022 18:23:28
Is right bp.

8.) 12 Jan 2022 19:21:33
Uran, sorry mate I got the wrong end of the stick there! Thought you was happy shelling out 15m for a bit then haha. If he comes on loan, I'm not holding any targets for the lad in the same way I was with Townsend. I wasn't too taken by his signing but he has done well and gives his all so I can't complain at that.



09 Jan 2022 20:02:32
Game against Leicester postponed again as they’ve not got enough players - yet they managed to play in the cup and win hat game.

Premier league starting to look like a joke with all these cancellations now.


1.) 09 Jan 2022 20:13:06
Yea this one smacks of them calling it off for injuries and AFCON doesn't it?! If they have had a second outbreak within a month of the first surely the league should be asking questions about what safety protocols they've implemented at the club?!

2.) 09 Jan 2022 20:13:29
Wish we could cancel the season.

{Ed025's Note - so do i mate..

3.) 09 Jan 2022 20:51:02
If that includes b4 Rafas appointment, I'm in the me too camp.

4.) 09 Jan 2022 23:03:59
Well at least I will have a stress free week.
But here’s an idea. Benitez could spend the week coaching his defence.

5.) 10 Jan 2022 10:47:20
Especially as a number of their players were at the darts surrounded by fans recently and Danny Ward was out on a Wrexham away-day with a load of fans as well.



28 Dec 2021 20:37:29
Newcastle game postponed.
Disappointing as was looking forward to game.

However atleast gives us some more time to get some of our players back.


1.) 28 Dec 2021 20:51:10
Gutted me dan if am honest was going the match was also going to burnley away but yeah hopefully we should have few players back from injury mate.

2.) 28 Dec 2021 22:37:51
I’m starting to worry that with so many cancellations, we could end up with a Christmas fixtures scenario in a few weeks/ months time… let’s hope we can get players fit enough and keep them fit now until we are safe from the drop.

3.) 29 Dec 2021 06:47:38
Just adds the pressure. Good news is we are on an undefeated run.



16 Dec 2021 21:41:41
Well done lads, cracking performance and a well deserved point.
First time in a while they actually looked like a team.


{Ed025's Note - young lads bring energy and spirit dan, its all we have been asking for mate, and it showed..



01 Dec 2021 23:55:29
Seen a rumour that we could sack Rafa or Brands by the end of the week.

Now if true who would you pick of the 2?

Think I’d go with Brands as not sure what he’s achieved whilst with us.

Not sure sacking another manager is the right thing to do even though he persists with Rondon and his subs are ridiculous.


{Ed025's Note - it would be brands for me as well dan..

1.) 02 Dec 2021 00:26:17
Brands all day long. You will think I'm mad but I'd leave all football matters to benitez and see what he can do.

2.) 02 Dec 2021 00:27:04
If someone has to go its Brands. I feel for the guy as he was a spare cock at an Anne summers party for 3 years as he was constantly dealing with an owner who was telling him who we were buying. When he's been allowed to work, he's done wellish
I don't believe Iwobi for example was anything to do with him for a start. If we get rid of Rafa we really haven't learnt a goddamn thing and will be the biggest joke in world football, as close as we've been for 5 years as it is. Every neutral knows we need to stick to a plan and see it through. It's not even 20 games it's times like this that these echo chambers become toxic and dangerous frankly.

3.) 02 Dec 2021 00:37:19
I haven't seen the rumour Dan but personally, if true, I wish it was and/ or rather than just or

To me Brands has been made pretty irrelevant by an owner/ board/ managers who haven't taken most of his advice. We should never have renewed his contract and we will now need to pay a substantial amount of compensation if we get rid it him

Slightly different with Rafa. Can we afford to pay him two and a half years (the remainder of his contract) to get rid of him. Against this, can we afford to leave a manager that I admit I never wanted in the first place to remain when the team is playing so poorly.

Third alternative, the whole board resigns as they and FM are the main reasons we are in this mess. But as some say 'it is what it is' and what right have we supporters have to complain.

4.) 02 Dec 2021 00:59:00
Bw, that last sentence ??.

5.) 02 Dec 2021 03:36:50
Don't believe that we can afford to replace either Brands or Rafa, both having long contracts and we need what little money we have for new players. What is needed is for a change in assignments. Brands needs to focus on bringing young inexpensive talent into the club and dong the paper work for the players Rafa wants to bring in. Rafa should be solely responsible for player recruitment and Moshiri needs to keep his nose out of recruitment.
Although I would get rid of both if feasible we are stuck with them at the moment, if they did go who would replace them? No money and a sinking ship and a toxic atmosphere is not appealing to most worthy candidates.

6.) 02 Dec 2021 04:14:27
BP It is what it is


7.) 02 Dec 2021 04:19:58
Don't disagree with what you are saying Mike.
Financially and technically we are f'd
I just wish I had more faith that Rafa is the man for the job but don't see much of a way out of the mess our management has got us into.

8.) 02 Dec 2021 06:50:54
First one for me would be Kenwright. To say he has no influence is BS. Even Moshri came in on the promise BK kept the reins. I am still not convinced either that Brands has the powers his job is supposed to have. I get that Bill saved us and believe me this is not personal but a positional opinion. In this Country we have a bottom up approach to departures when things go wrong. Everton need root and branch Managerial audit.

9.) 02 Dec 2021 08:05:27
I think they are all culpable DFS.

You can't get away from the fact that FM has owned the club for 5 years. Is he that naïve that he didn't know something was radically wrong with a club he has invested over £500m in. Of course he is part of the problem and has made some wrong decisions

BK is the Chief executive officer same thing

Baxendale might be great in Everton in the Community but has she done a good job as deputy CEO. Not in my book

Brands - toothless, ineffective waste of money as no one listens to him

Grant - supposed to report on and enforce compliance with FFP. Another F ailed

I've been having a disagreement with another poster who says IT IS WHAT IT IS and that we can't change it as supporters

He might be right but we, as supporters should be saying IT'S NOT WHAT IT SHOULD BE and how do we, as a club get from what IT IS to what IT SHOULD BE and pull together as one instead of getting frustrated which I am and I apologise if I have given offense to anyone by venting that frustration

Admitting our mistakes would be a start.

{Ed025's Note - cracking post that bw, kudos mate..

10.) 02 Dec 2021 08:46:46
Spot on BW. Thing is about auditing it is catch22 ?.

11.) 02 Dec 2021 13:37:23
BW, you've taken the entire 'it is what it is' comment out of context and you know it! The gist is that there's nothing that we, as fans, can do to change what's happened. As long as the club are addressing the problems and are learning from mistakes made, there's little that the fans can do.
Obviously, there's something not right at the club and we all want it sorted asap. I think it's better to look forward and see what can be done rather than wasting time arguing about how much has been wasted etc.

12.) 02 Dec 2021 23:10:09
You never want to address the facts do you BP and your posts are always misread and the fans can always do nothing
You want it sorted but don't want to complain, Where is the proof that FM has learned anything - a text to Jim White. Show me a director who has admitted they've f'd up except for Brands 'is it only the players?

Get real.

13.) 03 Dec 2021 01:33:58
Been reading this site for many years now, and this is the first time I felt the need to say something. I have lived in the US now for 20 years and miss going to the games so much. Before I left I had a season ticket for 12 straight years from 90-2002. So as you are all aware, those years were not our best. We had some atrocious players in that time, that don’t need to be mentioned. It was very rare though that I ever saw a team go out and not put effort in.
What we are witnessing now needs to be addressed and very quickly. Yes, we as fans can do something. We can protest after the game on Monday after the match (regardless of the result) , stage a sit in by refusing to leave until a board member addresses our concerns. Like who is in charge of purchasing, who is hiring/ firing managers? What are the plans for changing this situation? Is there any accountability for the awful decisions made except the continued manager merry go round? I would love to be back at Goodison to be a part of something like this, and make my feelings known, but we cannot say “it is what it is” regardless of context. This entire board has a lot to answer for. I originally could not wrap my head around hiring Benitez, but I think I know now. They were hoping he would be the scapegoat for the shambles they have created in the last five years. This plan has now backfired spectacularly, because of just how bad it is and we Evertonians aren’t that stupid!
I genuinely, like others have mentioned on here, just do not get the excitement of watching Everton anymore, and I hate that feeling more than anything. I didn’t even celebrate when Demari scored, because we all knew it was merely a consolation, even at that point in the match.
I just want the joy of watching Everton back, and I truly believe us fans have a massive part to play in turning it around. We have to make our feelings as clear as possible to those in charge.

Would be interesting to know what actually happened between the two of them but doubt we ever will.

However Digne has had numerous digs since left - his Instagram post as well as him saying he’s gone to villa because of Steven Gerrard.

Agree SA90 - very little point in loaning him out, can’t believe he’s on massive wages so may as well keep him at club and use if injuries force it.

If an offer of a purchase came in I’m sure that club would cash in on it.

Apparently quite highly rated and has played well for them.

Surely a championship player is an improvement on Holgate and Keane though?

Think £20-25m is a fair price for him.
More than what we paid.
He’s been poor last 18months.
Doesn’t want to be at the club.
Happily take that fee considering above.

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.}

Yet we’re still in the league not relegated yet
We’re still in FA cup
We’ve still got England’s number 1 keeper
Just bought a very promising rightback
Got 2 decent centrebacks in mina and Godfrey
Got 2 decent midfielders in doucore and Allan
Got some very decent attacking midfielders in gray and Gordon.
Got a Brazilian international in richarlison
Got a cracking centre forward in DCL

And got a few decent youngsters in Branthwaite, Dobbin and onyago

Whilst results have been poor there is a decent team there and with the right manager it will do well.

I’m not sure what the board see in Martinez?

Look at the players he has at his disposal at Belgium and still hasn’t achieved much with them. That squad should be winning tournaments.

We need someone who know how to set up a back line and can coach them into defending.

Our attacking players are good and look very good when given the chance to attack, grey, Gordon, Richarlison, Townsend, DCL will get goals - but if we can’t defend then no hope.

Genuinely don’t get this interference from the boardroom stance.

How can the influence from the boardroom affect the team training, team selection, the team seat up, the team tactics, the match day substitutions?

Whilst can see affecting players signed not sure how they day to day management of the club can be affected by higher up.

Whilst I somewhat agree all this chopping and changing is no good.

Sticking with Benitez would be worse.

I wanted him to succeed but he’s clearly out of his depth.

His insistence on playing Rondon over youngsters is beyond stubbornness. He sets up the team in the most bizarre fashion. Makes ridiculous substitutions and won’t give out youngsters a go which risks them wanting to leave.
