Reports coming out Martinez will not be taking the Everton job, hope that's true.


1.) 17 Jan 2022 18:27:03
Was never an option. Why would he ever have swapped where he is for us? Twitter press guff. No movement until the summer would be the best way forward. Gives the Nice manager time to win lique 1 again and Rooney o save Derby. Both outrageous achievements that are more relevant than a Potter Lampard or Favre etc.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 18:55:30
Wishful thinking GB, I’m seeing the opposite, although the media are just using us as clickbate at the moment.

3.) 17 Jan 2022 19:21:37
They are mate, this is going to rumble on and on.

4.) 17 Jan 2022 19:47:35
Let's face it we all have plenty of experience now of the manager being sacked. Generally it takes the hieracy 3-4 weeks to settle on a manager with week 1-2 spent with various random people claiming Everton have made contact.

5.) 17 Jan 2022 19:54:51
Rumble on and on, 24 hrs.

6.) 17 Jan 2022 20:13:28
Me too!

7.) 17 Jan 2022 20:15:33
Yes mate, days and days.



14 Jan 2022 08:57:44
David Neres and Golovin being lined up, both look good players.


1.) 14 Jan 2022 10:12:22
Neres gone to shaxtar.

2.) 14 Jan 2022 10:32:18
Ok mate cheers.

3.) 14 Jan 2022 10:32:52
Well, at least Golovin is still available.

{Ed002's Note - Aleksandr Golovin (CM) The player opted for Monaco over the interest of Juventus and Chelsea and it looks like it was a good decision. He has asked Monaco if they will let him move this coming summer and they have agreed if a suitable offer is made. Everton made an enquiry with his representative before Christmas and were told he is ideally looking for a high-profile club and would probably not entertain joining a club not in the Champions League. Other English clubs who have enquired will have been told the same and none will want to be used as a stepping stone which could easily happen.}

4.) 14 Jan 2022 11:23:04
Thank Ed good info mate.

5.) 14 Jan 2022 13:12:04
Looking at Benitez body language and what he said I very much doubt we will get anyone else in hopefully I'm wrong. He also gave the impression that El Gahzi was not a player of his choosing so it looks like agents are getting their way again.

6.) 14 Jan 2022 16:40:48
I didn't get that vibe at all. I was actually surprised how well he spoke of El G.

7.) 14 Jan 2022 17:06:34
Yes he did speak well of him, but he started by saying that he was part of the Digne deal which gave me the impression if Digne had gone to another club he wouldn't have gone for him.

8.) 14 Jan 2022 18:13:43
Just something else we will never know. I quite like the player, and he has a decent goals to minutes ratio, so let’s just see how he goes. If he plays him that is.

9.) 14 Jan 2022 19:49:56
I felt the same as you Sa90 he avoided the question but he is a good player and I am sure he will be a success but I can’t see us going in now for any match winner in January, as ideally we needed a creative, powerful, attacking dribbling midfielder to play in DCL and Richarlison
With Mina coming back then we will be much better in the defence department, no doubts we will have a better second half of the season now that we will have a full strength squad.

10.) 14 Jan 2022 22:42:15
1 in 4 good games apparently woburnblue. I thought he was a winger but according to Benitez he can play two or three positions. On loan though so that is a plus, he will play to impress (hopefully) .

11.) 15 Jan 2022 01:50:12
Yea do a Gomes dfs, play great while on loan then sod all when we sign him. ?.

12.) 15 Jan 2022 04:31:45
Villa fan here, 1 in 4 good games if you're lucky. The goals to game ratio may seem good as well but, a good portion of them came from penalties, frustrating player to watch to say the least, and I hardly think his signing is going to help your season, I do hope it all works out for yous though, good luck for the rest of the season!

13.) 15 Jan 2022 08:13:22
Well he got You Villa promoted, if he has 4 good games between now and the end of the season that will do us, anyway you have just signed a better one from Barcelona that’s been a huge success, Not, plus you just signed the best left back in the country!

14.) 15 Jan 2022 10:31:29
Never been a fan of Gomes boblatch to be honest. From the off he appeared to slow and need (s) ed space to operate.



13 Jan 2022 10:11:46
Golovin from Monaco being linked apparently we have inquired about his availability.


1.) 13 Jan 2022 10:47:45
Tim Cahill likes him Jose likes him from 'Footballfancast' he's a ''dynamic playmaker' I hope Rafa likes ?.

2.) 13 Jan 2022 10:48:19
I don't understand these posts putting down Benitez. All great managers have their faults, just look at the likes of Mourhino. Benitez inherited an overrated, underperforming bunch of overpaid but mediocre players. He brought in Townsend and Gray for 1.7m and they are the best on the park. Speaks volumes. He has had to deal with multiple lt injures that a small squad cannot stand. The important players are just getting back and he has brought in some youngsters with incredible futures. Support him until tge summer and i believe we will move steadily up the table. He wants players with desire that will give their all. So do i.

3.) 13 Jan 2022 10:58:35
I don't think we have much choice really Alfar, he is the Boss and that's it, and those of us that are on the 'doubtful' side are just keeping their fingers crossed mate. . . that the results improve and that's just about the size of it with me anyway.

4.) 13 Jan 2022 11:54:44
With you there Alfar mate been saying that for ages about Rafa he does need a few windows and time and with the injuries coming to an end with our top players, also did so well in the first window with Gray and Townsend, hopefully 2 or 3 more in and we will move up the table, one thing he has to do though for me is play the youngsters of Dobbin, Simms etc and drop Rondon as even my patience is wearing thin with him, but the future of our Club is certainly looking brighter mate,

5.) 13 Jan 2022 12:01:39
Not sure how many on this forum actually go to the games. For the rest of us we can only show our frustration on here. Yes all managers make mistakes but Rafa sees to make more than most. Football is supposed to be entertaining, Rafa style of football is terrible to watch. I do like most of the new players he has taken in, apart from Rondon. We will have to see what happens when all the wounded players are back in action. What I can tell you is the style of football has to improve otherwise my TV will be switched off and those who actually go to the games will not stop showing their frustration.

6.) 13 Jan 2022 12:13:45
Definitive post Mike.

7.) 13 Jan 2022 12:14:31
Alfar1963 A lot of the fan base didn't want Benitez and thought it was an unacceptable appointment others thought it was not a problem as long as the team improved. We would all probably agree that on the transfer front we have seen an improvement. On the playing side our results speak for themselves. Benitez has used the injury issue continually as an excuse which to be fair is quite is a reasonable response. However, while we have had numerous injuries he has set up the side very defensively which hasn't worked as we ship goals and lost matches due to his lack of tactical awareness or reluctance to change what he thinks is a winning formula. I personally don't have a problem with his defensive football as long as we don't loose. Yes he may well be the man we need to sort the club out but at what cost relegation? I don't think so! So unless we start picking up points and winning soon then he will be in an untenable position.

8.) 13 Jan 2022 12:34:00
Bm you are correct with everything you say mate, and I will keep saying it. Benitez is not a great manager. He is living on a past reputation that ne longer stands up in the Premier league.
Going the match use to be fun, few beers and a bit of banter and the hope your team would win. Now you have a few beers before the game to get you through the rubbish you have to watch on the pitch.
And it's not all down to the players. I am sick of reading how bad our players are. Well their not, we have a lot of quality in the squad, certainly enough to see off the likes of Brentford.
But we set up to fail, we are so bloody negative it's embarrassing.

9.) 13 Jan 2022 14:41:21
Great post brassington blue I go games atmosphere is awful some down to benitez but been like for long time. I also go some Tranmere games when we don't clash with them or if we're away there at home. As I just like to watch football live but there ground is so much louder then we are. Away support at goodison this year has been terrible aswell so quiet dunno if just premier League thing to be honest as seen away fans Tranmere who had only couple hundred be louder then most premier League teams including Liverpool who were so quiet expect when they setting flares off.

10.) 13 Jan 2022 17:00:31
Now that some of the injured players are on their way back, I expect us to move up the table and start getting better results. We started the season off well when we had the majority of our 1st team available. Possibly another face or two to bolster the squad in this window. It's been a rough few months but it will get better. Hopefully ?.

{Ed025's Note - i hope your right BP mate..

11.) 13 Jan 2022 17:14:52
Rafa will play him centre back anyway.

12.) 13 Jan 2022 17:34:06
I agree with you BP.



12 Jan 2022 17:38:22
Loan move for El Ghazi imminent.


1.) 12 Jan 2022 20:00:02
How exciting.

2.) 12 Jan 2022 20:18:49
Who were you expecting mate, Salah for goodness sake get real.

3.) 12 Jan 2022 23:40:12
What position does he play?

4.) 13 Jan 2022 01:54:45
Yes because it’s either El Ghazi or Salah, the only 2 players in the world.

5.) 13 Jan 2022 07:10:07
Looks like we're gona have to get used being a bottom half of the table team.



12 Jan 2022 16:32:10
Good news for a change DCL, Ricky and Mina back in training.

Four technical and fitness coaches have left the Club.


{Ed025's Note - thank god GB, they were obviously not doing their jobs mate..

1.) 17 Jan 2022 17:54:28
It’s an official Club statement mate.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 19:55:03
They all worked with Benitez so good riddance.

3.) 17 Jan 2022 18:11:12
They came with Rafa I think Ed, and I agree they obviously failed mate.

{Ed025's Note - your dead right they did BBTGD..



16 Jan 2022 16:34:31
With Rafa gone our main problem still exists we still are left with many very poor players in our Team who I doubt are even good enough to be in the Premiership, who ever comes in will have to be a top notch manager, and looking at what is available I can only see someone like Paulo Fonseca being able to turn our Team around,


1.) 16 Jan 2022 16:55:09
Our main problem is definitely not the players.

{Ed025's Note - its a lot higher up swan..

2.) 16 Jan 2022 16:55:59
You told everyone who would listen that that Rafa was the man to take us forward GB, but already you see Fonseca as being the answer, we need to leave the Foreign managers alone, Duncan Ferguson is the sane man's choice, God know the lunatics have been running the asylum for too long.

{Ed025's Note - whoever comes in is on a hiding to nothing danny, too much interference from the board room im afraid mate..

3.) 16 Jan 2022 17:04:35
Although I respect your opinion GB, and years of following this great club. On their day we do have some decent enough players to match up to many teams in the premiership. The problem is how they have been set up in resent games, and importantly the moral and confidence.
Agree we need some class in the team, but that’s not happening any time soon as we’re all to aware.
With the right set up, improved moral and confidence I’m sure we can survive this season and see how we can ship out and improve going forward.
Just send Rondon on an early holiday whoever takes the job on.

4.) 16 Jan 2022 17:09:11
Yep and he didn’t live up to that but will support whichever manager is appointed, as to the players Iwobi, Holgate Keane Seamus etc etc are simply not good enough.

5.) 16 Jan 2022 17:21:32
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.

6.) 16 Jan 2022 17:22:01
Have agree with danny on tbis one i think ideally he has to be british but we all know mosheri loves the hollywood names be interesting see who gets it crucial times ahead.

{Ed0666's Note - why ideally British?

7.) 16 Jan 2022 17:41:09
Yeah chalkie we do have a few players that are good but unfortunately we have many that aren’t mate. as for Rondon not fit to wear theBlue shirt.

8.) 16 Jan 2022 17:43:15
I don't care which country they come from as long as they ate decent at their job.

9.) 16 Jan 2022 17:47:42
Who ever it is, what matters is 'the plans' in 'his' mind and the plans in the mind (s) of 'who ever' decides to hire him. we are in desperate need of serious 'Upgrades' in this respect!

10.) 16 Jan 2022 17:53:10
We need a manager with passion and about of a personality I think.

11.) 16 Jan 2022 18:45:16
Think it’s uneducated snobbery from the poster @ Ed0666 mate.

None of this foreign tip tap nonsense of the new brand of football, let’s go back to British basics.

Out of interest, 7 of the current top 8 in the prem are managed by “foreigners”.

All of the bottom 3, yes you guessed it, managed by British managers.

{Ed0666's Note - the irony



16 Jan 2022 11:29:23
Hey Ed 025 where do you sit with our new manager quandary, the most logical would be Big Dunc short term I would have thought but not totally convinced myself, certainly do not want Martinez back, maybe Potter or some young manager with good leadership, going to be very difficult to finally get the right person for the job and if we do then he deserves a medal, any ideas mate.


{Ed025's Note - i think it may be dunc on a temporary basis GB, who we get long term is anybodys guess mate, but whoever it is will have a torrid time with our board and the meddling that goes on..

1.) 16 Jan 2022 17:23:39
Ed 025 if you had a free five pound bet who would you reckon as the next manager.

2.) 16 Jan 2022 17:23:39
Ed 025 if you had a free five pound bet who would you reckon as the next manager.

{Ed025's Note - potter andy, but thats a total guess mate..

3.) 16 Jan 2022 19:35:50
theres my ten pound bet going on potter then cheers ed 025 haha.

{Ed025's Note - he has already declared hes not interested andy, the ones that are being touted as favourites are making me physically sick mate..



16 Jan 2022 11:52:47
I see Paulo Fonseca is available, excellent replacement for Rafa I would have thought.


1.) 16 Jan 2022 11:59:48
Lets not run before we can walk this time. Due diligence is a priority.

2.) 16 Jan 2022 12:09:32
Yeah like Rafa not sacked yet.

3.) 16 Jan 2022 12:23:18
I like Fonseca as a person, as he's smart, tactically astute and has a good sense of humour, so would probably be a good man manager, which is exactly what we need with our rabble of cowardly jobsworths, but his best experience comes from a two team league, so he's yet another gamble. But anyone is at the moment, so we are relying on some good luck more than anything for our next appointment. Let's face it, that doesn't come our way very often these days.

{Ed002's Note - Paulo Fonseca (C) Everton would need to work hard to convince him but it would be a coup if they could get him. History of not being a progressive club and struggles with coaches may make him think twice. The best possible option if it can be done, and available immediately.}

4.) 16 Jan 2022 13:45:41
Ed would Jesse Marsch be of any interest or have we got no chance with him ??‍♂️.

{Ed002's Note - Jesse Marsch (C) Really nice guy but would need a better structured club than Everton. But an approach would not be a shock. Was second choice for the Monaco job.}

5.) 16 Jan 2022 14:21:27
Yeah wishful thinking ragnick gets the bullet at Utd he can come and be dof and get marsch in under him club sorted ??.

6.) 16 Jan 2022 14:31:10
I've championed marsch for a while. Very good young manager/ coach. I can't see anything happening til the summer, so it will be dunc/ baines apparently til then.



15 Jan 2022 21:46:09
He's gone official.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 22:37:39
Obviously he’s desperate for work. Wants a job before the incumbent has left.

Yeah goodness knows who will be our next manager and we can only speculate just can’t see Martinez even being considered, new names emerging this morning are Lucian Favre, Andrea Pirlo, Genaro Gattuso and so on and so on, none of know who it will be, just hope Mr Moshiri gets it right and we can all enjoy watching footy again.

Load of tosh DFS, several clubs far worse than us think positive mate,
