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.



03 Jul 2020 19:39:08
Plenty of lazy journalism around Allan and Zouma again today. Any truth in these or any other current rumours? Be great to see some youth/ power/ pace added to the squad.


{Ed002's Note - Allan (CM) Napoli are keen to cash in on Allan. Kurt Zouma (CB) Mr Mourinho knows Kurt Zouma very well and sees him as a CB option but Spurs have financial difficulties and look like they won't match Chelsea's valuation of him. Everton can provide a good option - he is very experienced in the Premier League and has already spent a season at the club but is not first choice.}

1.) 03 Jul 2020 21:31:01
Cheers Ed.

2.) 04 Jul 2020 09:34:45
Do we really need another centre half? We have 3 decent players there, i think midfield is a place we need filling.

3.) 04 Jul 2020 09:45:24
Regards the continual Allan rumours is this more down to Napoli being keen to cash in and the Ancelotti connection? Or have we made a move or declared interest?
Given our FFP issues you mentioned it just doesn’t feel the right move, looks a great player but sounds expensive has no premiership experience and would have no future sell on value.

4.) 04 Jul 2020 11:38:34
I think it’s already been shown this season that three is not enough. Need a minimum four to get through a full season. Agree though midfield is our biggest concern right now.

5.) 04 Jul 2020 13:24:34
lets not forget lads we have holgate with potential but keane an mina are a worry at times i'd happily have kurt zouma.



23 Jun 2020 16:47:53
Friend of mine has links to Derby County and reckons we're one of a few clubs sniffing round Sibley - scored a hat trick at the weekend. Type of player we could do with, wouldn't be unhappy if this was true.

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..



06 Sep 2020 15:12:48
Favourable draw in round two and three of the league cup - should mean we can have a real go at reaching the latter stages this year.




01 Sep 2020 22:56:16
SKY reporting that James R and Allan to have medicals tomorrow. COYB.




11 Aug 2020 11:41:58
Are we close to completing any deals Eds?
Would be good to see some early movement and have the new signings with the squad for pre-season.


{Ed002's Note - I have no way of determining what "close" means.}

1.) 11 Aug 2020 14:21:41
Who are our top targets? Are any deals further down the line than just general interest? Just wondered if you might know any more than what’s in the papers.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what a "top" target is but I have explained that Everton are looking at options to fill a number of positions - but players must also be moved on.}

2.) 11 Aug 2020 21:29:16
I think I’ll leave this particular line of enquiry.

Must have CBS playing for u23s and u18s. Digne or Coleman would also do a job. Not to worry.

If Kean leaves, I can see another attacker coming in. If we could offer Palace Kean money + Iwobi, it seems possible.
Another loan for Kenny would see a RB come in.
A CB will definitely come in IMO.

Can’t we chuck Bolasie in too?


{Ed025's Note - we could chuck another 8 in JB..

I’m not so sure. We e done well to buy top bracket players at reasonable prices this summer. Other teams in the Prem would still take a punt on those players in the last week of the window. Iwobi could still fetch a good price.

I think it’s simply that we can’t buy any more players until we raise funds and trim the wage bill. If we could sell Walcott and Iwobi - we could buy again.
