Digne confirming what we knew already - he’s been forced out of the club he loves by ‘an outsider’. Good luck to the lad, seems like he had little choice. What has happened to our great club?


1.) 12 Jan 2022 23:18:16
Where is this news from?

2.) 12 Jan 2022 23:24:25
Thank you for 3 1/ 2 years in Blue ?
From Day One the Evertonians have received me with a lot of warm feelings, and I am forever thankful for that.
I have loved to be a part of the Everton family.
I have always worked hard to give back to the fans on and off the pitch.
I have loved the unity of fans and players.
Not only Goodison on a match day but also in everyday life.

Only one year ago I signed a new contract with the ambition of staying in this club for a long time, giving everything for my club, for the development and project, that I believed in - and for the passionate fans.
My dream was helping the club back where it belongs. 
Wearing the captain’s armband in some matches always made me proud.

Everything must come to an end.
I just did not expect it to end this way.

What has happened and some things that was said about me in the last month has made me very sad.
But I will not enter a war on words with anyone.

The club don’t deserve that, the fans don’t deserve that - and to be honest, I don’t feel that I deserve that.
There are so many good and decent people in and around Everton who want to the best for this club and not only for themself - and to them i can only say from my heart: I wish you the best!

Thank you, to all you wonderful, proud and passionate true Evertonians. 
It has been a an honour and a true pleasure to play for you, the fans, the people - because a club do not belong to a player or a manager, but to the fans. 
I will always carry you with me in my heart wherever I go.
Sometimes it only takes one person from outside to destroy a beautiful love affair.
All the best to @everton and Evertonians ?.

Exactly what I said earlier 'jumped or pushed'. Having now read up on Rafa recent outings, seems to be his modus operandi along with everyone elses fault except mine rhetoric. Getting a bit worried now
games in hand 100 percent need to be capitalised.

4.) 13 Jan 2022 01:54:23
One of the few genuine world class players we’ve had over the last decade. What a shame.

5.) 12 Jan 2022 23:44:09
So what do we think of this Ed, doesn't read like a lad that wanted out!

{Ed025's Note - its a good parting shot by lucas DFS, its only one side of the story of course and i doubt we will get rafa,s side anytime soon so i really dont know who is to blame...answers on a postcard..

6.) 13 Jan 2022 07:14:40
Disgusting it's going to take 10years to recover from this season and the fallout.

{Ed025's Note - dont get embroiled in a one sided argument and a twitter feed cookie, we dont know the full story and probably never will mate..

7.) 13 Jan 2022 07:57:37
I have always been for Rafa Ed, based on his tactical reputation mainly. As the days go on though, it seems we are dealing with a person that denies all personal responsibility for footballing failure but accepts for success. Even taking into account injuries, some of his decisions have been baffling! (Bad enough watching on TV but even more so in the ground) . Away at Norwich is crucial for me, a win essential, a draw let's hear the excuses, a loss, there are none.

{Ed025's Note - im on the fence DFS but it is what it is, as you say the norwich and then the newcastle games are crucial, we need 4 points from these games but im not holding my breath mate..

8.) 13 Jan 2022 07:58:49
It's Rafa. Wherever he has been he has caused problems with players. even at Liverpool! Just get the impression that if you disagree with him, that's it, you're off . Alonso fell out with him at Liverpool and left. I do worry about Richarlison for this reason!

9.) 13 Jan 2022 08:29:40
I was happy 2 give Rafa a chance but after the Brighton game I want him gone and that’s not just me I large section of where I sit feel the same he is a disease that needs cutting out doubt he will ever b accepted it’s like he pulls balls out of a hat when picking the team.

10.) 13 Jan 2022 10:19:31
Common thread is what has come out from the club on social media. Over years plentiful of messages supported the managers from playing staff. The clubs PR machine was quick to fill us with these articles about how players love Ancelotti, Allyardce, Koemans and Martinez. This has dried up. I suspect no one is happy and all are looking at there options.

11.) 13 Jan 2022 10:41:33
Bye Digne ? ????.

12.) 13 Jan 2022 12:37:17
Sell one of the best left backs in the Prem, and bring in someone you have never heard of from a crap league. But hey he's young so that's ok.

13.) 13 Jan 2022 12:46:31
Whichever side you believe, whether Digne was sulking, not trying, wanted out, etc or whether he was forced out because the boss didn't like him, surely it is a managers job to. "manage" the situation so it doesn't get out of hand and blow up in his face like this?

14.) 13 Jan 2022 15:35:02
25 million (in these times) for a left back that’s been poor for a long time now is great business.

15.) 13 Jan 2022 17:05:47
If he loved the fans and club as much as he professed in his parting statement, then why didn't he stay and fight for his place? The managers job is far from stable, he could have just bided his time.

16.) 13 Jan 2022 17:15:50
Probably didn’t fancy waiting 2 seasons for Rafa to be sacked before he played again.

17.) 13 Jan 2022 17:36:00
Quote a low bar if you think he world class.

Quality player don't get me wrong but he's no Ashley Cole, Robertson, Carlos.

He can't get in the French team ahead of theo hernandez of Milan.

The path ahead just got even rockier with this Instagram post.

I'm not siding with either party in this argument but the manager makes the decisions and he'll live or die by his action.

I'm all for giving him at least til the end of the season to see if results improve but I feel lots of fans already going to force him out for a banner on a plane.

18.) 14 Jan 2022 15:13:58
You mean he is no Leighton Baines GeofJohno ?.



31 Aug 2021 19:13:40
Benfica saying they've signed Gomes!
How many GKs will be on the bench in our next game? Surely we must be getting a few in?


1.) 31 Aug 2021 19:42:31
What goal keepers😂.

{Ed025's Note - love it mate..

2.) 31 Aug 2021 19:56:04
5 goalkeepers and 6 left wingers?

3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:10:02
Am on the bench against burnley.



07 Aug 2021 12:41:11
If you want to read into our friendly line up, Kean is definitely off. Not even made the bench. Worrying that DCL couldn't make the squad. With Richy still in Tokyo, essential that we sign another forward, and soon!


1.) 07 Aug 2021 13:00:40
Same old same old, 1-0 down, after 15 minutes with 23% possession and 23 passes.

2.) 07 Aug 2021 13:10:09
Richarlison missed pen for Brazil in the final. hope they go on and win and he doesn't have his confidence knocked by it!

3.) 07 Aug 2021 13:19:43
3-0 after 30mins?

4.) 07 Aug 2021 13:24:04
Absolute disgrace, the executives at the club need sacking for some of these players we have signed in the past few years, this squad is the worst I can remember, even in the 90s we at least had players who would fight for the shirt. This is going to be an awful season judging by today. Pathetic performance from all 11 players on the pitch in the first 45.

5.) 07 Aug 2021 13:27:37
Who’s bright idea was it to play this friendly?

6.) 07 Aug 2021 13:41:07
At least he he now knows what he has got.

7.) 07 Aug 2021 14:22:38
3rd preseason friendly in and you want some of the board sacked? That would really help the cause wouldn't it 🙄😂.

8.) 07 Aug 2021 14:32:56
So its better to move forward as we are?

9.) 07 Aug 2021 14:35:26
I can understand the frustration. Rafa has probably the most difficult managerial job of his life trying to mold this lot into a good footballing side. I don't believe that the previous managers have been all that bad apart from Big Sam but nobody so far has been successful, hopefully Rafa will be the first.

{Ed025's Note - we all do mike, but its one hell of a challenge mate..

10.) 07 Aug 2021 14:38:59
It's a friendly, DG, and we haven't got a recognised senior striker in the squad. Did you expect us to steam roll a good Utd team?
But you say you want certain members of the board sacked, so please explain how that would help us 'move forward'

11.) 07 Aug 2021 14:58:34
Gbamin and Kean were pinged by the NHS app. DCL has a minor toe injury. Bad result still.

{Ed025's Note - i know it was only a friendly hugo and we had players out, but it did highlight just how thin our squad is mate..

12.) 07 Aug 2021 15:29:26
I didn’t know there was such a thing as a friendly game against Man U.

13.) 07 Aug 2021 16:57:08
Its thin and generally bad I think, Ed. We’ve been in dire need of a reality check for a while I think. Far from where we think we are or think we deserve to be.

{Ed025's Note - very much so hugo, time for them all to step up to the plate mate..

14.) 07 Aug 2021 17:15:51
How long have we been saying that though, Ed? Seems since Moshiri came in. Too scattergun. Least when we were punching above our weight, we had that to fall back on, now we’re just bad. Top to bottom.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i could disagree hugo..

15.) 07 Aug 2021 21:07:49
9 conceded in last two matches against Premier league team and that's with the opposition declaring and Ancelotti and Benetiz in charge both universally agreed to be top managers/ tactician, no money, record signing in hiding and likely to never play again. Main striker injured, Ricky half way across the world and will be in need of a rest sometime soon. That said will still waste a fiver on top four finish because you never know!

16.) 07 Aug 2021 22:46:12
Some over-reaction to a friendly game I think. It's main purpose is to give players some game time; no-one got injured, 20 subs each, strikers not playing, nothing riding on the game, youth players given a chance to play in the first team, some of them for the first team, at Old Trafford as part of their development. Rafa will probably have made his mind up about Delph and a few others if he hadn't already, maybe even an element of putting players in shop window.

We already knew the team needs some radical surgery and today's game doesn't change that: Priority: RB, then CF if Moise goes (likely) , CM/ AM (2 if James goes) , CB if Yerry goes, possibly another RW but Gray and Townsend actually looking decent. Fingers crossed we can get them in by the end of August.



01 Jul 2021 22:36:16
Reports about that we're in contention to sign Ben White. Hope so, he's class.


1.) 02 Jul 2021 00:09:09
Lol. More chance of getting Barry White.

{Ed0666's Note - hell be your first and last your everything

2.) 02 Jul 2021 06:15:48
Although he is a very good player are we really in the financial position to spend 50m + on a player in a position we are well stocked in? . There are much more pressing positions we need to strengthen first.

3.) 02 Jul 2021 06:34:06
Depends who may be leaving I guess.

4.) 02 Jul 2021 09:29:32
He's played RB but not in the Coleman mould in my opinion

50m is steep, although I can see him going for that figure but, who of our current CB, are going to leave and get anywhere near that amount

We would be using a lot of our budget in an area we are not currently bad in

Depends on FFP, Moshiri and what we can spend.

5.) 02 Jul 2021 10:03:26
Ed0666, 😂😂😂😂 you're going to have trouble beating your reply in the future! Tickled me that did 😂.

{Ed0666's Note - mate were showing our age maybe we should just keep quiet 😂

6.) 02 Jul 2021 13:10:28
😂😂😂 still getting me every time I look at it mate, me mrs is looking at me like I've just kicked the cat or something!

7.) 02 Jul 2021 13:10:28
😂😂😂 still getting me every time I look at it mate, me mrs is looking at me like I've just kicked the cat or something!
Never change, ed066, we love you just the way you are 🙄😂😂😂.

{Ed0666's Note - stop showing off now potato I’m out of Barry White puns although after this year my Mrs is calling me the walrus of love and that’s not because I’ve got a voice like Barry White’s either 😂

8.) 02 Jul 2021 13:18:55
Brighton’s third best centre back, we don’t need another centre back unless Holgate and Keane leave, other positions need to be prioritised.

{Ed0666's Note - White may not be world class but he’s better than holgate and Keane now and is potentially very good.

9.) 02 Jul 2021 13:40:33
That’s wonderful but we have no money to spend as is, so any funds we do have need to be spent on positions we desperately need such as a right back, winger and midfielder. In fact centre back is the position we need players in least except left back.

50m to sit on the bench and only play when Mina is injured? No thank you.

10.) 02 Jul 2021 15:12:22
That's the only two that spring to mind for me, ed066 😂😂 I'm sure there's a joke to be made of your last reply but I won't go there! 😂😂
Swan, I agree it's not a position we need to strengthen but maybe rafa is planning on shaking up that position. Possibly one or two on the way out?

{Ed0666's Note - I’d say Rafa is not far away from being a walrus of love 😂

11.) 02 Jul 2021 16:10:30
White would walk into are starting 11 imo Swan. Mina is probably off as well.

12.) 02 Jul 2021 22:37:06
Spend what we like, then take a little fine for going over ffp,

If the cap fits with the Euro breakaway, then why not chance our arm.

Strike while the iron is hot, and have a top lawyer on stand by.



19 May 2021 11:33:57
What looks almost certain is that Moise Kean will leave for a decent fee.
With Walcott, Bolasie, Besic off the wage bill, we should be able to invest in the squad. Hopefully one or two from Siggy, Iwobi, Bernard, Gomes will also free up space in the squad.

Batshuayi, Imbula, Lundstram, Bertrand just a few available on free transfers. Does anyone see any value in any of them?


{Ed002's Note - Batshuayi is not available on a "fee transfer".}

1.) 19 May 2021 12:23:57
I honestly think are priority is to try sell the 4 players who you have mentioned mate even if we take a loss in profit least the wage book would be down if Marcel can recruit few players doesn't matter if there in the championship or even league 1 with potential to be good players than happy days.

2.) 19 May 2021 12:28:46
My mistake. it’s his loan contract that’s ending. He’s hardly done the business for Palace anyway so we should be looking elsewhere.

3.) 19 May 2021 12:29:21
Agreed, need to cut your losses sometimes. Although.

4.) 19 May 2021 12:35:46
Agreed, have to cut your losses sometimes. Those players are not likely to improve, are stopping younger players from coming through. Personally, I’m happy for there to be a balanced approach to recruitment and the age of players, but ideally, the majority would be young enough to improve with the squad and have a potential sell on value.

Is he gone yet?




15 Jan 2022 15:19:28
Please please please don’t let me read anymore crap about injuries and sticking with him. No idea and he’s lost the players. Sack him at half time.




12 Dec 2021 17:54:15
Anyone else think he's trying to get sacked for the pay off?


1.) 12 Dec 2021 17:57:04
Definitely and then he hopes Newcastle get rid of Howe and take him back.



11 Dec 2021 10:17:14
In October, went to watch Mallorca play Sevilla with the lad. We both thought Baba was the best player on the pitch - reminded me of Guaye in his prime. Seeing the rumour that we're enquiring this morning - hope it's true - would be a direct replacement for Alan/ Davies/ Gbamin if any of the three moved on.

Don’t remember hearing a single positive thing on here about Brands in the last year. We can be happy with Rafa leaving without rewriting history. Brands has been culpable for far longer than Rafa was.

Looks the solid pick from all those mentioned. You’d hope he’d be on the list.

Could be blind optimism, but I still feel that with the attacking quality we have in Richy, DCL, Gray, Gordon, Andros etc, we’ll score goals. With some tightening up at the back, and some spirit injected, we’ll be mid table at the end of the season.

16 Jan 2022 19:20:39
Still a few to move out by the end of the summer, but there’s some talent there. Can see Richy or Dom leaving which would be a shame, but would fund a rebuild at least.
I’ve always thought it might benefit Godfrey to blood him at DM whilst he progresses, a bit like Dier at Spurs.
