Reports circulating that we may face another points deduction in May. Just relegate us now and have done with it.


1.) 01 Dec 2023 12:18:01
Only if there has been further overspends after this punishment JB.

2.) 01 Dec 2023 13:31:50
Club are adamant we are well within limits.

3.) 01 Dec 2023 14:17:07
Wind up click bait.

4.) 01 Dec 2023 14:44:06
Did the spend rule/ cap start again 22/ 23? Excuse my ignorance but we are deducted for being 19 over 21/ 22. From what I read (believe Mr Moshri if I must) the Club as you say insist we are within.

5.) 01 Dec 2023 17:34:05
The manager was asked about it Cookie, so a little more to it than that I fear.
Club were pretty adamant about the last claim too.
My understanding is that it’s any overspend over a 3 year period. If I’m wrong, I’m sure I’ll be shot down very quickly.

6.) 02 Dec 2023 12:11:49
The club was given an opportunity to reprive themselves after approaching the Premier league about the overspend for the 3yrs upto end of 20/ 21 season, but did not adhere to the Premier leagues rules as they kept on spending, even though some were players also sold.
Apparently the commission allowed for £180m overspend for stadium costs, academy, Everton ladies and C.V. etc, so actually we overspent by about £300m in those 3yrs.

Reports that Holgate is heading for a medical at Southampton today.


1.) 25 Aug 2023 09:57:43
Only on loan though. Still it’s a start.

2.) 25 Aug 2023 10:57:09
Option to buy and £70 odd grand a week apparently.

3.) 25 Aug 2023 11:14:28
I don’t get why we aren’t pushing them to some obligation to buy at the end or a permanent transfer
And if we are really in for Adam’s then build into that agreement ??‍♂️.

4.) 25 Aug 2023 11:37:01
How come Holgate is Southampton bound for a medical, but we still can't agree terms for Che Adams.

Obviously our offer of £10 up front then a pound a week was not acceptable.

5.) 25 Aug 2023 11:40:34
We want his wages off the books, not sure we’re in a position to make demands.

6.) 25 Aug 2023 11:51:20
Reckon we will end up paying part of his £72g a week.

7.) 25 Aug 2023 12:46:43
Probably. Not many £70k a week defenders in the Championship.

8.) 25 Aug 2023 12:46:43
Probably. Not many £70k a week defenders in the Championship.

9.) 25 Aug 2023 13:15:17
And who replaces Holgate in the squad?

McGuire? I bloody hope not

At this rate Dyche will have 4 keepers and 3 outfield players on his bench.

10.) 25 Aug 2023 13:36:09
I still think Adams is not who he really wants so waiting to see if there is a better option first.

11.) 25 Aug 2023 14:16:17
Could be right bobslad.

12.) 25 Aug 2023 14:50:11
From what’s being reported regarding Holgate - loan for the season, no option/ obligation to buy and wages being split between the two clubs.

Whilst he’s out of the club, hardly a deal to be celebrated.

13.) 25 Aug 2023 14:55:41
I hope not bobslad.

14.) 25 Aug 2023 16:05:12
Saving a couple of million quid in wages on a player who never plays still helps us. The fact that he’s on £75k at all is criminal.

15.) 25 Aug 2023 18:14:24
Unless he is replaced by a u23/ u18 then we won't be saving anything as we will have to pay to replace him, it just false economy which I find strange if we are as skint as we are reported to be. Sell him or loan with an obligation should be the only options the club should consider in my opinion.

{Ed025's Note - i agree sa, or swap for Adams if we really want him..

16.) 25 Aug 2023 18:32:01
Not a fan of agents but hats off to Holgate getting him that sort of wage. Speaks volumes about our negotiation skills or lack of them.

17.) 25 Aug 2023 19:47:56
He had a good season full of promise and rumours were rife that everyone including City were sniffing about. We were hoping/ fearful he'd be on a similar trajectory to Stones. A big pay rise and a massive FM style 5 year contract to keep him out of the clutches. The rest is history.

18.) 26 Aug 2023 01:52:32
When you hear that Mason Holgate is on 70k a Week the penny finally drops for every fan that the club is ran by absolute lunatics and buffoons. Just when you think things can't get any worse this mobb managed to pull yet another rabbit out of the hat. I'm just beyond disgusted with what's happened to my club. Years of abject failure but at least under moyes we had a team I could be proud of. I have no love for any of this current crop but its the board that sanctioned these halfwit players and gave them ludicrous salaries. I really am morphing into a mere avid football fan as kenwright and moshiri have drained the love out of me. I will never forget the 'summer of 2017' for me the catalyst for where we are now! Tit up after tit up ever since.



24 Aug 2023 11:17:30
Back in for Beto if you believe anything in the press. Looks perfect for the Prem. Hope we have the funds to get this done. Then it's ship out Holgate, Gomes and Gray, loan Cannon, and fingers crossed get one or two more in before deadline.


1.) 24 Aug 2023 12:18:13
JB there’s 8 days till the window closes, unfortunately the speed we do things can’t see much of what you ask for to be achieved in that timeframe.

Sure it’s probably the same for other clubs, deals seem to take ages to get done.

However we do seem to spend ages chasing targets that we have no chance of getting rather than focussing on achievable ones.

2.) 24 Aug 2023 12:27:09
Better than Adams I would say.

3.) 24 Aug 2023 13:44:54
I suppose you have to factor in that selling teams are holding out for best terms and so deals will become more frequent towards the end of the window. Could be some bargains to be had if we can hold our nerve.



14 Jun 2023 20:53:30
FA have just announced new rules which mean that Premier League clubs can sign 4 players without needing a work permit. Should open up some reasonably priced options for us from South America, Asia etc. Hope we act quickly and sign up some hot prospects, open up some new markets too.


1.) 14 Jun 2023 22:28:07
It’s Everton… we don’t do things quickly.

2.) 14 Jun 2023 22:52:07
Meanwhile our recruitment team are scratching their heads whilst trying to find South America on a map.

3.) 15 Jun 2023 00:26:27
Well I hope that we have some representatives down there but I doubt it. Does anyone know how many scouts we have and what areas of the globe do they observe?

4.) 15 Jun 2023 07:50:58
Thelwell was set to have a meeting with our scouts but he's struggling to find them.

5.) 15 Jun 2023 08:21:57
First time Post, I always thought it was the Home office who authorised people to work here. You will need a work visa, nothing to do with what the FA say.

6.) 15 Jun 2023 11:28:59
The FA have been working with the Government to make these rules according to the reports, Buck. It's linked to an agreement that clearer pathways and more minutes are offered to young British players. The new rule would appear to support the opposite approach if anything.

7.) 15 Jun 2023 12:45:55
Smitty, I heard they had lost that map lol.

8.) 15 Jun 2023 22:16:21
Our entire recruitment strategy is one big game of "Where's Wally? ". Oh look, there he is, still sat in the boardroom.

9.) 16 Jun 2023 10:04:17
A owner who runs the club properly would be a start ?.



01 Feb 2023 11:34:21
Being suggested now that we were making bids for players without having the funds to complete them, and hindering the deals for other clubs. An attempt from the board to appease the fans with efforts to sign players they had no intention of signing. As others have said, if we had 45 million to sign Gordon, surely we could have signed someone less expensive. Shambles. So embarrassing.


1.) 01 Feb 2023 11:59:59
The whole situation is disgraceful and embarrassing

I wouldn't be surprised if dyche had walked out.

2.) 01 Feb 2023 12:49:32
There wasn't £45 mill there was £40 mill of which £38 mill was ringfenced (apparently - EPL - special measures) . Guessing but hence the offer of £2 mill up front for Sarr with £30 mill later if survival.

3.) 01 Feb 2023 12:59:00
So the Gallagher bid never happened then?

4.) 01 Feb 2023 13:28:20
Most likely it happened in the safe knowledge that the player was never going to come JBtoffee. Then get linked with all our rivals targets in hope scuppering their deals and finally regurgitate or so called targets of past Sarr, Beto. Thinking us fans are naive and will lap it all up. Was evident in Moshiri interview when talking about science dept and getting players back, then Dyches interview with not overseeing what we have in squad already that we weren't going to spend. Hindsight hey. having said all that expected at least 1 in and maybe 1 more out.

5.) 01 Feb 2023 16:24:58
We can have the money to buy him, probably haven’t got the room in our wage bill to pay him. That’s why we needed to get rid of one of the big earners. Gordon wasn’t really on that much. Football wise that is.

6.) 01 Feb 2023 17:51:36
Gb dfs this is exactly what I was thinking yesterday. If we had money we shouldn't be a difficult sale. Most players will follow money - unfortunately we have none. Suspect it has something to do with any spending has to be sanctioned by EPL. Same will happen to Pickford in the summer.

7.) 01 Feb 2023 21:06:41
The money is there but FFP forbids it. Situation: I am a multi billionaire and I want to buy this Club, I don't give a toss about profit and loss, this is my toy. FFP no no no we know better.

Really wasn't expecting that. Thought we were done for after the Chelsea game. Fair play to the lads and the staff for the reaction. Might not be able to match the top teams for individual quality, but when you work that hard you make your own luck. Proper number 9 performance from Dom. Absolutely buzzing.


1.) 25 Apr 2024 02:43:25
Well it was a great display, the question is why haven't we played every game with this determination and passion?

2.) 25 Apr 2024 06:24:58
Totally agree BlueMike. They were brilliant tonight and couldn't cope with DCL. Long may it continue!

3.) 25 Apr 2024 06:29:50
Is that down to the manager or players Mike?



15 Apr 2024 19:11:50
Can't get excited by that lineup, just feels so negative. No pace, no width. I'll take a 0-0 right now.


{Ed025's Note - i have a feeling one of them noughts will be spot on JB..

1.) 15 Apr 2024 19:32:17
Dyche tactics are get the ball pass it back to Pickford who punts it down the pitch Dyche shouts Go on my son head it ball goes out for throw in or Chelsea get the ball on the ground and play proper football. Everton win the ball, back to Pickford it goes hoof down the pitch and that’s it. What a load of rubbish. No build up
Play no passing no nothing it’s so hard to watch it’s as bad as getting hit in the face with pepper spray and then a baseball bat. Dyche might as well sign Jonny Wilkinson.

2.) 15 Apr 2024 19:50:01
It’s so disappointing to see the same old thing time and time again.
Chelsea can be beaten, however this would be one I’d say would be a free hit so go and try something new.

This side will sit back, take the pressure and eventually hand the win to Chelsea without laying a hand on them.

No pace, or quality in wide positions, doomed from the start but will still watch and cheer on as usual.
A tough night ahead COYB.

3.) 15 Apr 2024 19:57:29
Had it with Dyche.

4.) 15 Apr 2024 19:55:20
Dyche playing for another nil nil, till we concede and then fall apart. 4-0 Chelsea.

5.) 15 Apr 2024 20:00:56
That right side is frightening.

Madueke will cause us problems for as long as he is on the pitch.

Formation stinks. No support for our striker, be that Beto or Dom.

Only way we win this is by staying solid and getting a lucky goal. We don't even score from set-pieces anymore.

6.) 15 Apr 2024 20:19:58
Pub manager. Who thought this was a good idea in the first place the guy couldn’t get a job in the championship, league 1, league 2 or the conference. No one wanted him . We should have learned our lesson from Lampard. Fans need to stop shouting for these crap managers. It’s bloody embarrassing. Get him out. Two 40 year olds playing is the guy serious or what. It’s a disgrace.

7.) 15 Apr 2024 20:24:39
Had it with the whole side.



25 Feb 2024 12:21:01
Watching the highlights of the Fulham game, can't help but be jealous of the style of football, the numbers they get forward supporting. Stark contrast to our current style of play.


1.) 25 Feb 2024 13:17:02
Who’s there manager again?

2.) 25 Feb 2024 20:07:54
Oh he's just another one of those we got sacked.

3.) 25 Feb 2024 22:26:08
I don’t remember sacking him?



27 Jan 2024 15:48:01
I absolutely despair. What is the point of VAR and how many decisions are we owed now? Game after game, decision after decision. A disgrace in plain sight.


{Ed025's Note - but we might get an apology..

1.) 27 Jan 2024 17:33:05
Not fussed. It’s the cup and Luton will now have an extra game to play. We need to focus on squeezing as many points out of the league as possible starting with Fulham .

2.) 27 Jan 2024 17:55:30
Play like that and Fulham will destroy us.

3.) 27 Jan 2024 18:33:13
Bring back Mark Clattenburg from Gladiators.

4.) 27 Jan 2024 18:33:44
Don’t turn up to lose in front of our home fans BR. Not good enough mate.

5.) 27 Jan 2024 19:43:48
I hope tonight’s game for Fulham takes it more out of them.

I agree we don’t need to turn up to lose which is why I’d like to have seen the kids play. Even if we lost, there would have been a bit of passion in the performance. The first team need to get themselves ready for Tuesday - today would not have helped much.



04 Jan 2024 22:16:57
No way in the World Dom goes if he makes that challenge at home for a top 6 team. It's just far too easy for them to screw us and no one will care.


1.) 04 Jan 2024 22:24:38
I'm done with var now. Why not leave things alone. Refsaw it and allowed play to go on. Var is trying to control games now. Should be kept quiet until ref asks for help. Ruining football now.

2.) 04 Jan 2024 22:40:25
Sooner they get rid the better! That was the only time that var was used. Joke as per usual.

3.) 04 Jan 2024 23:29:07
I'm not going to play this woe my beloved Everton nonsense but that wasn't a foul. Didn't touch him. Re reffing the game is disturbing. I hope the powers that be review this season and make the rule changes needed. It's not the tech at fault but some of the new rules have been proven to be flawed and some of these so called guide lines are ruining the game. VAR is the wrong target. Also this discipline nonsense where managers can't speak out and players get harsher penalties for appeals is draconian and needs to be challenged. Frankly the managers need to get together and support each other and all say their piece after games and refuse the fines.

4.) 04 Jan 2024 23:47:56
It's the people viewing the video footage that's at fault. Different people will have different views on what's fouls etc. The inconsistency will never go away.

5.) 05 Jan 2024 08:18:35
Craig Pawson obviously has a problem with us.

On the plus side, he’s been fit and playing for a while now. He still had the attributes that managers will be looking for. I would think 25 million would be more realistic.

Good to hear from you, Worcester.
I'm with Ed25 I'm afraid, no more backwards steps please.
A young, hungry positive manager and a young, hungry, positive squad please. Rather be at the bottom of a ladder I want to climb than at the top of one I don't.
