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.



23 Sep 2020 18:59:40
If Theo can't get in the team to play Fleetwood, he must be off no?


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

1.) 23 Sep 2020 19:09:32
Fingers x mate.

2.) 23 Sep 2020 21:11:39
Need to save room in the taxi for Pickford. Really awful tonight.

3.) 23 Sep 2020 22:03:17
Yep, can't make excuses for him tonight. If Mina or another 6ft plus CB was playing instead of Digne, the ball shouldn't come over for the overhead but the back pass was a mess to try to get on your left foot. Surely a swing with his right would have done? Poor.
Also reading we in for Lingard. I hope not, especially if the guy is on 100k a week. I'd rather keep Bernard as squad player. Also hearing more about Rudiger tonight too.

Anyway, unbeaten and lots of goals. Iwobi looked great in the 1st half too. Unfortunately we won't be playing Liverpool rejects all season.

Really liked Barton on best behaviour with Big Duncan at the final whistle. I'd have liked to have seen that one back in the day :/.

4.) 23 Sep 2020 22:15:35
Yeah I don’t believe anyone when they are linked with Lingard

Big wages for a player who averages a goal or assist every 50 games or something

He’s a mid table championship player at best only still at Utd because he’s a local lad and he’s full of “banter”.

5.) 23 Sep 2020 22:18:13
Pickford needs dropping and made to fight for his place, the other 10 players got him out of trouble tonight that won’t always happen in prem. yes back pass was short but kick it with your right, clear the danger.

6.) 23 Sep 2020 22:47:33
Pickford came with a lot of promise, but for me has not lived up to the expectations. We may well be improving and get more points, but it worries me how many points he will cost us.

7.) 23 Sep 2020 23:05:18
Seems similar to the kepa situation at Chelsea. basically his heads gone. I see what other posters say and want to get behind him but since the incident in the newcastle bar he's got on my nerves, comes across as gobby and arrogant but cannot back it up. we have made massive improvements but he continues to be nothing more than a liability. I don't want us to think what could have been come the end of the season but no matter how well the outfield players play he's always going to haunt us with his displays. It's time to get a decent keeper in and drop pickford to number 2 or sell him. Regards bernard I rate him, he could be the fairy dust in a good side and I wouldn't sell him.

8.) 23 Sep 2020 23:07:56
We can say that about one of our players Swan, word for word, although he never reached the heights of Lingard. I wonder who I mean? Hmmm. Looks like a championship side could score a new central midfield :/.

9.) 23 Sep 2020 23:24:13
Wouldn't rush for another CB just yet, would make keeper a priority and a striker/ attacker depending if any leave. Pickford seems to get worse though and maybe it's time to give Joao a run as can't be much worse. Pickford turning into Joe Hart! I think we're covered in def and have Coleman who's played at CB too. With Allan and Capoue, the back is protected more than ever.

10.) 24 Sep 2020 00:15:33
Some of the older posters will remember the Everton team that came close to winning the league around the 74-75 season, then the one under Gordon Lee around 77.

Both very good sides but had Dia Davies and Dave Lawson in goal, average goalkeepers in two very good sides.

Came close to signing Peter Shilton, but ended up going for Lawson instead.

Now we have another very good team, but again with an average at best Goalkeeper in Pickford.

We need to learn from past mistakes and bring a goalkeeper in as a must.

A mistake now and again you can expect, but they are happening more and more with Pickford.

11.) 24 Sep 2020 10:03:46
Re OP, Theo could be playing for Fleetwood next season🤫.

12.) 24 Sep 2020 10:15:04
BigNev, Davy and Dai yes I recall quite well and they were never going to be what was to be the 'Southall standard' we needed at that time.
The keeper role is a crucial one in successful teams, and right now it has become ''crucial'' to do something about this keeper mate!

13.) 24 Sep 2020 13:25:12
ToffeeApple think you are giving Barton a lot more than he's got. Barton and Big Dunc wouldn't have happened, Big Dunc would have reached down Bartons not inconsiderable big gob and pulled his sack out with all attached appendages.

14.) 24 Sep 2020 13:52:59
Flippin eck BCT, that sounds more like 'The Itchy and Scratchy Show' 😰.

15.) 24 Sep 2020 14:05:20
How did I give Barton anything? I simply said he was on best bahaviour. But thanks for the lesson about Big D.



24 Aug 2020 21:15:17
Few reports around tonight suggesting that Kean is close to heading back to Juve on loan. Surely we'd only allow this if a deal for another forward coming in was on the cards? Also reports that Allan deal is close. Could be a busy week!


1.) 24 Aug 2020 21:28:45
Thought that myself JB, surely (as good as I want Ellis Simms to become) we need a third striker with DCL and Rich? . Want MK to do well really do but . we can’t wait forever as the more time he takes to deliver the small amounts of price tag starts to arose away from what is clearly a ‘saleable’ asset. Don’t think we are near that stage yet but if it ain’t working then no point it persisting forever esp if the lad wants gone!

2.) 24 Aug 2020 23:37:24
Wouldn’t it be good if we could get Aaron Ramsey coming on loan the other way if the rumours are true that Moise kean goes on loan to Juventus.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 15:09:45
I know you may snigger, but with a few games, we could see Bolasie making a comeback, he did more in the time he came on against Blackpool, than Iwobi has done in all of his games, in an Everton shirt.

Go onto YouTube and type in Bolasie Everton comeback v Blackpool, it hilights all his contributions with some decent tracking back and tackling, along with his forward attacks, well worth a watch.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 17:17:33
Sorry bignev, it’s not a snigger it’s a rofl! 20 minutes against a 3rd tier side is probably his limit. I wish you were right, that someone will step up but it ain’t him :)

5.) 25 Aug 2020 19:51:48
I have more hope in Bolasie, than I do in Iwobi, will have a better idea after the next couple of friendlies, but a fully fit Bolasie might just be a welcome surprise, seen very little of the player after his bad injury, but one of the few so called deadwood I think might have something to offer.

6.) 25 Aug 2020 21:34:42
Got to agree, we would probably get more from bolasie than iwobi.
Would a sorry state of affairs we are in though!



28 Jul 2020 16:13:26
Rumour on sky sports that Ivanovic is being considered - played under Carlo at Chelsea. 36 years old!


{Ed002's Note - He recently dropped and broke the Russian FA Cup.}

1.) 28 Jul 2020 16:25:14
He’d fit right into the current squad then. Our players can’t hold on to anything either.

2.) 28 Jul 2020 17:00:10
Maybe he could be our goalie.

Not quite our day today. 10 minutes of poor defending really cost us. Siggy can't continue - poor generally, but especially from set pieces which had been his only positive. Thought Fernandes was lucky to still be on the pitch after 90 minutes. Hope we can come back after internationals fit and ready to go.


1.) 07 Nov 2020 16:15:08
Thought Fernandes was exactly what we are missing myself.



01 Nov 2020 16:00:03
Awful game. Neither team deserved to win. Not a pen. We took too long to make changes and only looked dangerous in the last 10 minutes. Tactically, not Carlo's finest hour.


{Ed025's Note - spot on JB..

1.) 01 Nov 2020 16:11:28
Robin Olsen was very good, he should be our no one.

{Ed025's Note - yet carlo has seen fit to promise him he is back next game lee, im sure that will do robin a power of good mate..

2.) 01 Nov 2020 16:16:12
Totally agree, last ten minutes with some actual wide players on the pitch showed how vulnerable Newcastle actually were. Changes were too little too late. Cannot figure out why we started with 5 central mids.

{Ed025's Note - because we went there for a point ONE, i never thought i would say this but carlo was tactically inept today, heads need to roll starting with our captain mate..



06 Oct 2020 14:11:01
Danny Wellbeck released from Watford - available on a free. Assuming DCL starts most games, he'd be a decent, cost effective option off the bench.


1.) 06 Oct 2020 16:30:39
JB that has got to be a wind up surely?

Since 2016/ 17 Season he’s scored 10 goals in 70 games and had numerous injuries.

I’d much rather give Ellis Simms a chance off the bench as that would be by far the most cost effective solution than recruit a has been player that has both a poor injury record and port goal scoring record in the league and would want a hefty wage to join us.

2.) 06 Oct 2020 17:35:25
If Carlo thought Ellis Simms was ready, he’d be on the bench already. So let’s assume he doesn’t. We are short a striker. I’m not saying that DW would be my first choice, but we are now restricted to buying from English lower leagues. You focused on the negatives - it would be fair to say that he was good enough for Man U, Arsenal and has 42 England caps with 16 goals. I’m not saying we boot DCL out of the team, I’m saying DW could do a job off the bench. Josh King would be preferable.

3.) 06 Oct 2020 18:46:04
Danny Wellbeck is everything that is wrong with a modern footballer sat on his bum injured for long periods picking up a hefty wage did very little to help them stay up they get relegated and instead of offering a wage reduction to try and help the club come back up he agrees to terminate his contract in the hope that some fool will offer him a very good wage to pretend to be a footballer no thanks.

4.) 06 Oct 2020 18:54:58
All will be revealed over the coming weeks but I expect to see Simms on the bench as an option
Gordon as well as he would come on if DCL came off and allow Ricky to play up top
Tosun is still to come back and when fit I suspect he will he given game time when resting DCL
Can’t see a move for Welbeck myself, too many injuries.

5.) 06 Oct 2020 20:28:39
Danny Welbeck? Come on - has to be a joke surely!
He’s 💩.

6.) 06 Oct 2020 21:49:20
Not only is Welbeck rubbish but he’s on good wages and he is always injured

We need to do better than this lads.



16 Sep 2020 21:03:12
Mad how a few new signings can boost the whole squad - this lot are playing for a spot on the bench now, most looked like they had their boots on the wrong feet last season!


{Ed025's Note - they have tonight to be fair JB..

1.) 16 Sep 2020 22:19:15
Some perhaps, not all. Gordon’s a class act. New left back has promise. Kenny didn’t take his chance for me, not the man to topple Seamus. Gylfi, for me, should stay as a good option off the bench, as should Bernard and Davies. Keane, Walcott and Iwobi can head off.

2.) 17 Sep 2020 08:54:33
Holgate can play RB, DM and CB. We are covered. Keep Walcot convert him to RB.

{Ed025's Note - i would sooner convert him into a rochdale player BCT..

3.) 17 Sep 2020 18:58:53
Good one ED.



13 Sep 2020 18:32:17
Not just the 3 points, but the promise of what's to come. That midfield dominated. DOMINATED. James, Richy, Dom, even Kean - fill ya boots lads!


{Ed025's Note - considering the time they have had together JB, it was incredible mate..

1.) 13 Sep 2020 18:44:50
Can only get better Ed. Forget not getting excited - we’ve finally got something to get excited about!

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that JB..

2.) 13 Sep 2020 19:22:08
A lot more to come. But without putting a damper on it, let's use patience for a change. Ancelloti's first season, I believe this will be a season of gradual growth. I will be happy with that.

{Ed025's Note - we have been starved of anything to crow about over the past few years BCT, so that wont be easy mate..

Will it depend on us securing deals for players leaving to EFL clubs? Bolasie and Besic will surely you somewhere? Maybe Ellis Simms will be loaned too?


{Ed002's Note - I had already discounted them.}

As long as those up top learn from the deal, it’s onwards and upwards. No sense in keeping anyone at the club who doesn’t want to be there.

Shows how far we’ve come if that’s true. Realistically, one of our front three will either have a knock or need resting most weeks - Zaha would get plenty of game time. Also, James R can play the no.10 with 2 holding midfielders so all 4 could play. He would strengthen the squad, no doubt there. If we can get rid of 4/ 5 squad players, it’s not impossible.

Palace have been mentioned as having interest in Walcott too. Our forward options would be exceptional if this were true - fear it may just be lazy journalism.


{Ed002's Note - Walcott is not going to CP.}

Totally agree Ed. Can’t moan at the business done in the summer - but we are a Right Back and a forward short aren’t we? Injuries/ suspensions will play a huge part for us this season.


{Ed025's Note - i fear its a bit more than that we are short of JB, our first team im very happy with but our backups are really poor mate..



Click To View This Thread

03 Nov 2020 14:09:58
I was hoping he’d step up, but he’s not looked like he can be a top RB for us. Lacks creativity and crossing ability going forward and has a lot to learn defensively. A top drawer RB must be near the top of Carlo’s list.


{Ed025's Note - for me JB he is mediocre, ok at a push to fill in when injuries or suspensions happen, but long term is not the answer at all mate..

He can’t be to blame for the over inflated price we paid for him. There’s no evidence to suggest he’s been anything other than professional. Good luck to the chap, whatever happens.

It is a shame Tmh. But would we be where we are in the league without the C.V.? We’ll never know if course, but looking at teams like Villa who are flying and Shef Utd who are struggling to get their mediocre players going without 40000 passionate fans, you could assume we wouldn’t be. I just hope, that when we return, we can get behind the players, encourage risk taking without jumping on every mistake. First time in a long time that we’ve had a realistic shout at winning the derby. COYB!
