Interesting story on Takehiro Tomiyasu this morning. Young Japanese defender doing well for Bologna - CB/ RB. Could be a shrewd Mina replacement - would certainly gain some attention for the club from Japan.
Anyone know if he's any good?




10 Feb 2021 20:48:42
Dunc needs to line this mob up at half time. Absolute disgrace so far.


1.) 10 Feb 2021 23:57:01
He must have had a word after half an hour!
Strange game - delighted to have won, but we can’t give up that much at the start of every game.

2.) 11 Feb 2021 00:23:58
Maybe he did.



21 Jan 2021 11:27:41
Not much chat in on the rumour site recently. Is that an indication of the lack of expected movement in the market? Any Eds got any inklings on possible transfers for us?


{Ed002's Note - I would not expect too much in January but Everton face work in the summer and need to decide on which contracts to extend and which to let run down or sell up. Before the start of next season they need to add a second pick G, a RB, possibly a DM, a RW and a S.
Possible options being considered right now include:
Robin Olsen (G) the club want him to join when his loan expires.
Max Aarons (RB) seen as a long term solution to the RB position.
Djed Spence (RB) Brands has been asked to look into Spence as an option for RB after he impressed when scouts were looking at Tavernier.
Gleison Bremer (CB) Carlo Ancelotti tried to take him to Napoli and could try again - but a Work Permit could be an issue unless paying over the odds. If Mina stays nothing will happen.
Sami Khedira (CM/DM) Will be allowed to leave Juventus in January. The player says he is keen to work with Ancelotti again - it is unclear if Everton would look to him - makes little or no sense and wages would be very high. Spurs may offer a solution for 18 months.
Marcus Tavernier (AM) versatile Middlesbrough youngster that Leicester and Everton have enquired after with other Premier League clubs perhaps interested in getting involved at the right price - having signed a new contract recently, Middlesbrough will look a premium.
Demarai Gray (RW) not a CA pick but there might be a real push for him from Everton and Southampton could look to a deal.
Joshua Zirkzee (S) Bayern Munich want JZ to go on loan in the Bundesliga to gain experience but failure to allow Eintract Frankfurt an option to buy saw them opt for the return of the more experienced Luka Jovic. Cologne are struggling again this season but do offer a straight loan option for the player. Two recent disciplinary issues may make clubs think twice about the player. Zirkee is said to favour a return to Feyenoord but they are looking for cover for Bryan Linssen which would limit his game time. I am not aware of any approach from Everton but Bayern Munich would certainly listen to offers as they are keen to move him out on loan this month. A third party has become involved who has approached Parma, West Ham and Everton with regards the player.
Josh King (S) It has to be possible as Everton have previously shown interest, and Bournemouth are keen to sell now as he will be out of contract in the summer. Newcastle have had an offer for JK rejected and offers may well be coming from West Ham and West Brom.}
Boulaye Dia (S) Reims striker who would need to considerably improve his strike rate but has been of interest to West Ham, Brighton, Everton and Marseille. Says he wants to play for Lyon.
Arkadiusz Milik (S) a wildcard because of the CA link but of interest to others.
Diego Costa (S) will be offered to two English sides including Everton but I doubt they will want the risk.
Ivan Toney (S) The player decided on a move to Brentford in the summer instead of Swansea or Brighton. Celtic also made enquiries. After a very good start to the season he has attracted scouts from a number of Premier League sides including Everton, West Ham, Arsenal, and again Brighton. Brentford have no interest in selling.}

1.) 21 Jan 2021 12:57:40
There has been a bit of chatter in reports about this Rui Silva from Granada, is he another GK option?
There has also been a few rumours on Tarim Lamptey,

have you heard anything on those two?

{Ed002's Note - Rui Silva (G) Lazio, Inter and Real Betis are keen on taking the goalkeeper as a free agent in the summer. He is not the first choice for either Lazio or Inter but Real Betis have offered him a good package and it is likely he will agree a pre-contract this month.
Tariq Lamptey (RB) Lamptey only joined from Chelsea a year ago but an approach has been made by Bayern Munich - that was rejected and he has signed a new contract.}

2.) 21 Jan 2021 13:03:10
Cheers Ed, much appreciated.
Ideally, any player bought in would either be short term loan to beef up the squad, or long term potential to improve the squad moving forward.
If Costa was fully fit, you’d expect him to have been snapped up already.
If those mentioned, Aarons and Toney would be great long term additions.

{Ed002's Note - The problem with Costa is the wage demands.}

3.) 21 Jan 2021 14:11:39
Aarons out of that list would be my pick above the rest - there must be competition for him I’m sure

Hopefully a clear path to PL first team and Godfrey could be a pull for hm

I’d be happy with Olsen, Aarons, Gray + Milik - possibly Gbamin if returns

The money from Kean May pay for all of the above

Then sell / allow to leave Bollasi, Walcott, Besic, Davies, Beni, Kenny

If only things were that easy though ;)

{Ed002's Note - Aarons would be expensive and if he came up for sale there would be others interested. Djed Spence has a great deal of potential and would be great value for money.}

4.) 21 Jan 2021 15:18:28
Never really heard much about him but hopefully he is an option.

With Coleman close to retiring and Kenny not looking good enough we are going to need a 1st team player and not an U23

Boro conceding less than a goal per game and 3rd best defence in championship.



18 Dec 2020 20:31:02
What are the Eds thoughts on whether we'll spend in January? Loans seem likely. If we're to have any chance of pushing on for Europe we'll need to add at least 2.


{Ed025's Note - i think we will buy JB, maybe only one or two and there may be a loan or two as well, we still need to offload a few too so i expect there will be business done mate..

1.) 18 Dec 2020 23:18:53
Well it looks like we might be getting rid of two wingers so that’s a start.

2.) 19 Dec 2020 07:30:26
Which wingers? Bolaise and?

3.) 19 Dec 2020 11:39:05

4.) 19 Dec 2020 10:03:22
Cheers Ed. Carlo and Mosh seem to have an understanding - Carlo’s here to be successful, and to do that we still need to clear out and get in some real quality. If Dom picks up an injury, we’re in bother. So a striker, a versatile full back, a pacey forward, cover in CM, all look likely.

{Ed025's Note - im sure carlo would love that JB but we have to be realistic, yes i believe players will come in january however some will be loans and with FFP still hanging over us we will have to get rid of some lesser lights and that will determine the quality of incomings imo mate..

5.) 19 Dec 2020 23:25:14
With Big Sam at West Brom now maybe he will take some.

{Ed025's Note - tosun hopefully ST..

6.) 20 Dec 2020 15:43:47
Nah he now realises Tosun was a waste of money. If I were West Brom I would give him sod all to spend.



05 Oct 2020 08:47:37
SKY reporting that Everton are 'working on another deal' on top of Godfrey. Forward or Keeper? I'd say forward more likely.


{Ed025's Note - both hopefully JB..

1.) 05 Oct 2020 08:55:26
I think it has to be JB, he surely won't leave himself short in that area.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 09:04:44
Hopefully it’s a deal of buy 1 get 4 free.
Walcott, Bolasie, Sandro, Davies and besic.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 22:17:37
Thats 5 GD
No chance of Davies going.

09 May 2021 14:38:21
Carlo was talking to the press about improving our attacking options to play more attacking football next season. Suring up the midfield with Allan and Docoure was the priority. The quality of the players he did bring in should mean there's cause for optimism regardless of results in the next 5 games. There's an argument that Europa League football would hinder rather than help us next season as we look to grow and improve the squad. Personally, I'd take European football every time.


1.) 09 May 2021 15:21:57
Deffo JB. With Gbamin, doucoure and Alan having a proper pre season and fit should be a sign for. optimism.

If we could sell Iwobi I would be happy with a loan for Barkley. Offers so much more than Iwobi and gets in when James unfit.

2.) 09 May 2021 15:39:56
What is the obsession our fans have with former players. Barkley wouldn’t be welcomed back and Villa fans can’t wait for him to go back. He’s not good enough and never has been.

3.) 09 May 2021 15:49:49
No no no no no Barkley please.

4.) 09 May 2021 18:42:18
Well he's better than iwobi by a mile and on loan is cheaper.
We don't have any money this summer so do you want to see iwobi playing or Barkley and some money in the bank?
It's time to realise that C.V. means there will be a lot of loans this summer.



28 Apr 2021 11:14:24
What are people's thoughts on the proposed swoop for Kieran Trippier?
At 30, he's in his prime, but has limited future value. We have a lot of young players though so could be a good option for 3/ 4 years whilst we look to bring through a younger full back.


1.) 28 Apr 2021 12:53:18
I'd prefer Aarons. Played consistently this season, played in prem last season. Much younger. I think getting quality players for now and future is better than a player for a year or 2.

2.) 28 Apr 2021 13:21:05
Is there any talk on the potential fee JB?

3.) 28 Apr 2021 16:49:03
No fee mentioned ST. AMadrid bought him for 20 mill. Only a year left on his contract so should be less than that.

{Ed002's Note - This would be a significant mistake by Brands even though CA is a fan - Everton should look first at their other options of Aarons (who would be more expensive) or the up and coming Djed Spence who scouts recommended after watching another player.}

4.) 28 Apr 2021 17:12:30
Do you not rate Trippier, Ed? Or it simply an issue of age? Difficult to get the right balance of experience, quality, youth etc.

{Ed002's Note - Aarons would be a far better solution and Spence has a very good career coming. Trippier has had his time and the wages will be high.}

5.) 28 Apr 2021 20:06:15
Read that Aaron’s may no longer be under consideration as doesn’t fit the profile we want and we’re now looking at other options.
I find that quite hard to believe though as he appears to fit our profile perfectly as he’s young and proven in the league.

6.) 28 Apr 2021 22:16:41
Whether he fits it or not, trippier at 30 for a fullback fits it less.
Aaron's and Coleman can get us by for another season or two. Coleman looks clas when he is not playing every game.
Play him 1 in 2 if in Europe and 1 in 3 if not and Coleman has another year at least.

7.) 28 Apr 2021 23:45:58
Bellerin! Perhaps.



21 Apr 2021 06:51:13
I don't know what's worse - plotting to leave for greed alone, or grovelling to the press about how you never really wanted to play in the first place. Waiting 48 hours to gauge public opinion before deciding to 'stand by the working man' hardly merits an award for bravery.

And the governing bodies are welcoming them back with open arms. All 6 teams should be banned from playing European football next season and fined a percentage of the Prem team money for next year too. They wanted to leave, misread the power of public opinion, bottled it and now want to stroll back unpunished.


1.) 21 Apr 2021 08:25:24
If nothing happens in the form of punishment then it gives clubs almost a license to do similar things when there cash grabbing. Whole things a joke.

2.) 21 Apr 2021 08:27:01
I don't buy into this it's not fair to punish them as the players and fans don't deserve that, well hang on was that the narrative in 1985 when we suffered more than any other club because of the actions of some mindless hooligans NO the fact is Liverpool football club tried to take over the prem last Oct and got laughed at, they have now alongside some other greedy barstools tried to destroy the game as we know it and what looks like happening it's ok they said sorry we welcome them back no I'm sorry I hope the 14 clubs don't accept that and do all they can to sanction them for me a European ban and points reduction is the least they deserve.

3.) 21 Apr 2021 09:03:59
The only way we may benefit from this as fans is if there is legislation that results in a change in the way Football is financially run, that results in some sort of salary cap. This will probably hit the English clubs competitiveness within European football but may pave the way for a European salary cap which would benefit all clubs in all countries. can't see it happening though but we can all dream.

4.) 21 Apr 2021 12:06:40
I think we should all remember we are one of the highest paying of salaries in the league and spent more than most on transfers, managers in the league.
Our money comes from a very dubious source and we have recently been done for tapping up youth players.

Chairmen should be the likes of Bill Kenright and not Iranian businessmen funded by Russian oil tycoons

Fair enough we have not be caught up in this but there is plenty of mess in other clubs - look at NUFC - Wolves etc.

5.) 21 Apr 2021 12:13:56
We just need our salary cap to be slightly higher than the rest of Europe. 😂.

6.) 21 Apr 2021 12:52:12
Lets punish the Clubs for not doing something, yeah that's right eh! Ridiculous.

7.) 21 Apr 2021 13:22:20
Bct, they tried to do something tho and the whole of football went against it, so they grovelling back as if nothing happened. Put it this way, if in your in court for attempted murder, should you be let free because you never succeeded in doing it. They should be punished, and not in the pocket, because the owners wouldn't care about a poxy fine. Deduct points off them.

8.) 21 Apr 2021 13:30:45
I am not sure this will be forgotten so easily, by the rest of the PL as well as the 'gang of six' nor should it as breakaway 'cash cow' leagues with exclusivity deals etc are always going to be on the minds of the indebted greedy 'dollar' minded types and we have just seen examples of those in action.
The next blueprints of dastardly plans are probably being discussed as we type.

9.) 21 Apr 2021 14:12:28
BCT, of course they should be punished for their attempt at destabilising the entire structure of the game. It might be harsh on the fans and playing staff but a stand has to be taken on this. If they get away with a slap on the wrist and told to behave themselves in future, what message does that send out? That they can leave it until the dust settles and then try again? Let's face it, it was less than a year ago that United and LIverpool were involved in another attempt at having more control over the leagues. They were warned about their future conduct for that. Now look at how that worked out! Let them get away with it and we will be in the same position at some point further down the line.
Ban them from all uefa competitions for a year or two so they can't profit from the competitions they wanted to replace. There has to be some type of punishment, if only to deter this from happening again.

10.) 21 Apr 2021 15:06:03
BCT - you can get arrested for attempted murder or attempted robbery
They were attempting to murder football and rob every other team of their dreams so that they could enrich themselves

LOCK THEM UP! as Trump would say.

11.) 21 Apr 2021 15:19:03
They pulled out because they had no choice. No more to it than that. They all conspired to leave the league with a total disregard for the effect on English football. Of course there should be repercussions.

12.) 21 Apr 2021 15:24:45
It's a tricky one though isn't it Bluepotato. Obviously there needs to be some sort of deterrent but I feel an over the top punishment would only further strengthen their desire to do something like this again. As much as I'm disgusted by the 'closed shop' desire of this super league proposal we do have to realise that the big 6 are what brings the money in in terms of overseas TV money etc - let's be honest, prem league TV rights aren't sold globally because everyone is desperate to watch Everton try and nick a 1-0.

13.) 21 Apr 2021 16:06:00
You're totally right there, TD, it's a very tricky situation. I wouldn't like to be the one to hand out the punishments but it has to be done. The apologies of a couple, if you can call them that, are only paying lip service to the rest of us. Like a naughty kid who's been caught out again, they are just saying the words with little meaning behind them. We all know that this won't be the end of the European league, they will go away and lick their wounds for a bit but it will always be there in the shadows. They need to nip it in the bud now before the same instigators come back with a more robust plan.
I really feel sorry for the fans of the 6 involved, the majority went against their own clubs. They are the ones that will feel any punishment more than the owners. When all is said and done, the entire episode has been very sad for football in general.



18 Apr 2021 18:18:56
The red lot over there are prepared to walk away from English football for a few extra quid. Who's lining up to watch Leipzig v Napoli? They should all be ashamed.


1.) 18 Apr 2021 19:20:41
Good riddance to em.

2.) 18 Apr 2021 20:36:49
Shame to lose the derby, but on the plus side at least we’ll have won the final merseyside derby! .

3.) 18 Apr 2021 23:40:13
I thought the same :-)



16 Apr 2021 22:17:09
Played very well. Unlucky not to win. Pressed with intensity. If we can perform like that most weeks we'll do well. No doubt all the negativity will carry on from most though.


1.) 16 Apr 2021 22:29:24
Can’t blame anyone for being negative. Let down once again by the same individuals who keep getting picked for some reason.

2.) 16 Apr 2021 22:34:15
I’m with you there JB we did with and with a bit of luck we could have had 3 points tonight but defiinately improvement couple more addition and we will be there.

{Ed0666's Note - you’ll be where?

3.) 17 Apr 2021 02:25:26
Only negative when it is justified. They played well today and should have taken all three points. Play like that for the remaining games and get a few of the injured back playing and we will have a chance to get into Europe.

4.) 17 Apr 2021 07:06:34
Best performace from a number of players for the last few weeks, poor finishing and poor defending cost us a big win there in my opinion. I want Holgate/ Keane to be successful, but you cannot make them errors when Kane is on the pitch.

5.) 17 Apr 2021 07:20:30
Playing well enough to deserve the league position we are in, that is fact. We have had a two game in hand more than once this season and failed to capitalise that is also a fact. The top teams find a way to win playing well or bad that is also a fact. Platitudes don't seem to work with this lot. Some of these players are obviously doing the work on the training ground to get picked but then seem to think that's enough. I think/ hope once the fans are back Teams will again realise the pressure of game day.

I understand it fine thanks. Just making the point that the big teams being involved in European competition and reaching the latter stages of the domestic cups increases exposure, revenue etc. and keeps the brand strong.

22 Apr 2021 14:21:36
They should be punished. But they won’t be - not in a way that has any real impact on them anyway. Prem bosses want them at the top of the table, want them in cup finals, want them playing in Europe. All about the brand.

Very sensible post Evo. I’m not saying Carlo is above criticism, but I agree that more time is required to judge him fairly. I think the quality in the squad has improved under him and will continue to.

29 Apr 2021 15:39:06
If most of the suggestions about DCL on here are true, why are Man U interested in DCL? Why not go for Tammy instead? It is often levelled at us that we are over critical, and it’s easy to see why. 5 months ago, we wouldn’t have swapped DCL for anyone, now he’s useless. Don’t get it. Stick with the lad, support him, I think he’ll come good again, especially if we improve the supply from midfield.
