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.



04 Oct 2020 11:38:47
Strong rumours around Kean and a move to PSG this morning. Sounds like a good move on paper - as long as we get in a replacement. Llorente would be excellent cover for DCL for a season. Perhaps a RB on loan might be needed?


1.) 04 Oct 2020 12:03:55
Unreal it's come from no where I'm just disappointed it's not on a perm deal.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 13:22:49
Apparently no loan fee? 😳.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 14:55:36
I thought Kean wanted to go back to Italy, moving to PSG makes no sense?!

4.) 04 Oct 2020 17:52:52
TonyTampa i get the impression he always thought he was too good for us so moving to a team like PSG in his mind will be at the level he thinks he's at good luck to him his heart and head were never in our club.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 22:10:57
Anywhere will do.

In January, I posted saying I thought we should have thrown caution to the wind and looked to bring another 2 or 3 in to the squad as this would be the best chance we'd have of breaking into the top 4. It's going to be so tight - realistically still 6 or 7 teams pushing for 3rd and 4th spot.
There's no doubt that all of the teams will drop points, just need to hope we can steer clear of injuries and that Carlo can keep he lads on track, believing they can do it. Must beat the baggies in Thursday! COYB!


1.) 03 Mar 2021 11:53:26
Going forward - if we sign Aarons (or someone similar) our defence seems covered forca number of years.
If Pickford plays like he has last couple of games we have a world class keeper
Forward - Richarlison, DCL, King, Simm +- Kean in comparable to best in league

Gbamin, Davies, Decore, Allan seem good centre midfield options

James / Sigi / Gomes - they need to be addressed - especially if James not staying. Wait Maxime at NUFC is someone who would be for sale - he’s young and tries very hard - better option than Zaha.

2.) 03 Mar 2021 12:48:32
Like pickford has played last 2 games? He was excellent in the derby, but most certainly not excellent in the saints game. You will point to the great save he made late on - the majority of goalkeepers in the prem would not have made that save. Why? Simple - because they would have caught the cross, drama free, that he flapped at directly leading to the chance. It wasn't the only time he flapped at a cross either. In the derby I thought, somewhat unusually, he was excellent with crosses. But sadly it is an entirely different story when he is under pressure. I don't dispute he is a decent shot stopper, but if he did the basics right he would have a lot less shots to save.

3.) 03 Mar 2021 13:18:47
77.8 distribution rate - Pickford started the Everton goal. 2 clean sheets in a row

I’d take this.

4.) 03 Mar 2021 16:56:25
We'll have to agree to disagree on his performance in the saints game. He looked an accident waiting to happen to me, but credit where its due on the occasion when his mistake directly led to an easy chance he redeemed himself by keeping it out. He's already cost us a lot of points this season but as I say I do agree that he's a decent enough shot stopper so maybe if he suddenly develops the ability to dominate his box in a calm manner he will be a decent keeper!

5.) 03 Mar 2021 20:11:57
I thought Pickford played well. on the corners they stuck two or three right on him and he kept flinging himself to reach that ball. I only saw him miss one in the six yard box and that was due to the delivery.

His composure has been better but let's see how it goes. We've been here before. However, he's won us 6 points in the last two games. Can't ask for much more.

6.) 03 Mar 2021 20:30:05
How has he won us 6 points in the last 2 games? He did his job very well in the derby, as did the rest of the team. He had very little to do against Southampton and made 1 good save which he only needed to make as a result of his own error.



27 Feb 2021 17:10:37
Looks like we're in a win/ win situation with Moise Kean. Either he decides he wants to give it a good go in the Prem for Carlo and solve our 2nd striker issue, or he goes for double what we paid for him. Seems more likely that he leave at this stage.


1.) 27 Feb 2021 22:50:35
If we get into Europe he may be persuaded to stay, if not no way will he want to stay, he considers himself too good for us. He probably doesn't like the weather or food as well. It all depends on what teams are willing to pay for him, they know he will not want to play for us so I doubt if we will get much more than we paid for him originally and keeping a sulking player is not good either.

2.) 28 Feb 2021 11:30:29
Well if they get 30m+ for him then there's the money for Aarons for a start.

3.) 28 Feb 2021 13:57:22
Agreed BB, I just don't think we will get double what we paid for him suggested in JB's post.

4.) 01 Mar 2021 00:05:00
They want to take Kean onloan again, this time with an agreement to buy next season, which I am second guessing means, we are screwed if we buy Kean this season, with ffp, however, will be fine to buy him next season.

Meanwhile Everton are also close in their ffp, we need the cash, so pay up.



21 Feb 2021 00:41:50
In an inconsistent season, what we have done consistently, is bounce back from poor performances and win big games. We're far from the finished article, but we're on the right track. With the current squad, the 5/ 3/ 2 formation could be the way forward with Dom and Richy playing up top together.
Carlo is a class act - Klopp could learn a lot from him. Easy to be in good humour, and run about on the pitch when you're winning.
Enjoy the win, long time coming. COYB!


1.) 21 Feb 2021 05:43:28
To be fair Klopp is also class, just different personality.

2.) 21 Feb 2021 09:24:56
Certainly entitled to your opinion Bill - not sure I agree with you on that one fella.

3.) 21 Feb 2021 10:51:20
I think Klopp has shown his true colours over the last few weeks. Nice guy who people like when winning and things going their way. Now things are getting tricky he’s showing his other side which is not so popular. Looking for excuses injuries, var, cold weather and fixtures etc. Would love to have seen what big Dunc would have done to him if there rant continued. Lol.

4.) 21 Feb 2021 11:01:37
Different class yeah right, that guy has no clas at all, proves it over and over again in his interviews.



20 Feb 2021 18:26:19
C'mon boys! Get stuck in in the 2nd half. Get Gomes and Dacoure off soonish. Klopp's got the ref in his pocket again - despite getting foul after foul, still moaning!




20 Feb 2021 16:40:52
Oh Carlo no! All the pace is on the bench.
Let me guess - contain them by letting them have the ball for 80 minutes and then try and steal a win. Right - got 50 minutes to groan about the lineup, then get behind the boys.

If have him back in a heart beat. Some urgency in the middle of the park. Him and Allan together wound be a battle for any team. Gomes doesn’t have 90 minutes in him and Tom doesn’t have 10. Get it done and get in a forward player too. Forget the negativity, 7th and Europa league is possible and would be progress and something to build on in the summer.

Seems like a top guy, but I can’t see him getting too many games next season. Lacks pace and bite defensively, could maybe excuse that if he was lethal with a through ball or a set piece special-ist - he’s not. We’re aspiring to have better players in the squad.

We’ll need a bigger squad to play in Europe next season :0) perhaps they would swap a couple of players. Gueye, Dagba, Kehrer, Bakker, Draxler, Bernat all out of the first team and would strengthen our squad.

Shameful, sensationalist journalism - Pickford did not set out to injure anyone, see bad tackles and injuries every weekend. Let it go man. Pickford looked sharp and confident- let’s hope he takes it forward. Get Dom and Richy up top on Monday night and go for 3 points!

Good post BR. Sarah might want to get in touch with Rashford’s coach. I think we all accept that players will take advantage of contact these days, Richy does. In my opinion, Sarah and Mane did employ these tactics to an extent that should have been punished and wasn’t.

Anyway, forget that, we beat Liverpool at Anfield last night. Happy Sunday everyone.
