Looking ahead at the fixture list, after the Norwich game, I can't see us winning a game until after Christmas.

We are not creating enough clear chances.
Statistics said we had 24 chances on Saturday, but I was there and most of them were just half chances at best.
We need to attack down the flanks and move the defenders about with better / quicker movement. I know its easier saying than achieving but we haven't got a 20+ goals a season striker, so the more real chances we can create the more we are likely to put away.


1.) 12 Nov 2019 08:38:08
i think we are creating enough chances, our players just aren't finishing them look back at the brighton and burnley games we had chances to kill it off, same on saturday, against manchester city mina should have had a hattrick and against spurs we should have had penalties its difficult.

2.) 12 Nov 2019 09:07:14
As WBlue is saying capitalising on our 'real' chances is the key plus var decisions going in our favour and we could gain more points than perhaps our current PL place suggests .
However we do have company, as there are others in this predicament .
As I have already said December does look a challenge though LHR.

3.) 12 Nov 2019 09:10:14
I donโ€™t think we are quick enough, we mess about with the ball across the back four then into midfield then back to the back four. We need to be like Leicester more direct.

4.) 12 Nov 2019 11:06:46
oh yeah don't get me wrong dollo, sometimes its the worst attacking side in the world going fullback to fullback side to side.

5.) 12 Nov 2019 11:47:09
I can see 15 points by 1st Jan.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 12:55:16
Thats right Nick 'impossible' ๐Ÿ˜‘ just doesn't exist in 'Toffee Vocabulary' does it mate ๐Ÿ˜œ.

7.) 12 Nov 2019 19:39:53
The impossible we can do Blue. Its the miracles that take a little longer ๐Ÿ˜‘.

8.) 12 Nov 2019 21:32:29
Our form is picking up so let's hope we are peaking at the right time.

9.) 13 Nov 2019 10:44:23
@Nick, Lol love it mate ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰.

10.) 13 Nov 2019 16:28:23
Like I have said many times. people miss the point. whilst we are struggling in front of goal, we seem to have say 65% possession, a few shots on goal and then concede after giving away a stupid free kick or a misplaced pass in defence. Then you can see the confidence just drain away. It is no surprise to me that we have not come from behind under Silva to win a game. We need to be more solid in defence before thinking about scoring more. We concede on average a couple of goals a game. So we already need 2 or 3 goals just to get a draw. never mind a win. We had the same last season but by the end we tightened up. I am not sure why we are so panicky and soft at the back but outfield onwards we look ok.

11.) 13 Nov 2019 16:43:13
I have mentioned ''clean sheets'' or solid defence too Degsy, they are the foundations needed to progress, and both Pep and Jurgen learnt that the PL attacking standards called for good defenders and they ''both'' obeyed this demand .

12.) 13 Nov 2019 20:21:00
We create plenty of chances. If we were even moderately clinical this season, we'd be sitting in 5th with a cushion. The league is bang-average and on our day we can play with anyone. I wouldn't be surprised if we won, lost, or drew any individual match.

13.) 14 Nov 2019 15:51:49
We do make a lot of individual errors, which is difficult to blame silva for. I would also say watching Liverpool and city that as an 11 they seem to work harder than us. I have no stats to back this up but just what it seems to my eye. They consistently press harder, and I don't just mean tactics wise. I mean the players when they press go harder than we do, a lot of ours seem to be going through the motions off the ball.

14.) 14 Nov 2019 16:29:50
I agree with you Toffe Dave they do press harder much harder then we do and they all do it the same way and when they donโ€™t think about it they are in with purpose straight away they are obviously trained to do this because they all do it the same way, I mentioned in an early post that Liverpool press so hard and fast they are sometimes an infringement on the opposing player.

15.) 14 Nov 2019 21:34:32
Sorry coyb79, but not confident about winning any match at the moment because our approach play is so slow, we are not making defences work hard enough/ turning defenders often enough to create REAL chances.

If we had a top class finisher to put away the half chances we are getting it could be a different story.
But its a catch 22 situation no top striker is going to come to us until we start winning and looking like European probables.

Can't we loan Mina out to Reading and keep Gibson, at least

Gibson has time to learn from mistakes, Mina just keeps making them!


1.) 19 Sep 2020 21:01:25
Holgate and mina were our best CBs last season why do you want to get rid? Because of one iffy game?

2.) 19 Sep 2020 21:58:17
That's one of the reasons for bad season. Mina has been "iffy" since he arrived, inconsistent and regularly out of position.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 23:13:45
Look at today's game again, he never put a challenge against Diagana, and then stepped aside as he shot. He then closed his eyes as free kick was taken for equaliser. He has never been in best 2 Everton centrebacks.

4.) 19 Sep 2020 23:17:09
Mina is a good player and is much more talented than Keane

But Keane has been outshining him for a while now, once Holgate is back, Mina has to come out.

{Ed0666's Note - Are you talking about Yerry Fernando Mina? A good player? Come on mate....you canโ€™t say that in polite society those men in the white coats are loitering with intent.



04 Jul 2020 22:57:21
Just seen in today's papers Baines (+ Arteta) has only scored 6 free kicks for us. I would have guessed Bainessy had scored at least 10, if asked. Must have watched those 6 many, many times then!


1.) 05 Jul 2020 10:34:58
I remember he scored free kicks against Swansea, Newcastle, Spurs, Chelsea and 2 against West Ham. Not sure if any others. He took a lot of pens too.

2.) 05 Jul 2020 13:05:25
I remember two in an evening game against Newcastle. Both crackers.



10 Mar 2020 20:59:28
Just a thought.
Do you think goalkeepers are being incorrectly coached, their seems to to be glut of premiership keepers making multiple positional errors and conceding goals. Just watched Lloris and its not his first this season?


{Ed002's Note - Goalkeepers make mistakes and it is all the more visible.}

1.) 11 Mar 2020 11:14:31
Trouble is their not just goalkeepers anymore. They are expected to play the ball with their feet, which makes them an easy out for lazy defenders and midfielders who knock it back to them rather than take responsibility. Therefore they are in the spotlight a lot more than they used to be.



18 Dec 2019 23:53:33
That just shows in 100 minutes what its like being an Everton supporter. Terrible for 70 minutes, while all around you get through + the reds get a late goal to go through to another final.
Great for 20 minutes. Then penalties and you think were there when Pickford save the first one, but no its not to be again.

I also believe we have gone for the wrong man we need Arteta to coach some of these the basics and develop others.
Do you really think CA is in for the long haul or just to make more easy money from Moshiri.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 01:51:01
I've been "edited" I never have called that team from our former home by a colour and never will!

2.) 19 Dec 2019 10:06:45
I don't compare EFC to LFC atm full stop, why ? .

As for Arteta, as much as I 'think' he will do well at AFC, I 'know' we need a 'proven' football genius to pull this club away from the abyss .
The reason I am sure, is because we have tried and failed with so called 'potentially good managers' also we had the 'Big Sam' experience which imo put us in a bracket that did not fit us at all to say the least.
LetS aim as high as we can 'for a change'



18 Dec 2019 12:34:20
Reading that CA contract with Napoli was not terminated does that mean we will still have pay them a large settlement as well.


{Ed002's Note - The situation is the same as it was with Serri when, even though he had been replaced, Chelsea had to pay circa euro 8M.}

1.) 18 Dec 2019 16:10:22
Iโ€™m more interested in what he can do with the players heโ€™s going to inherit before looking at who he will bring in, some of these players are very good, but Silva could not get anything out of them was it cause they donโ€™t suit is play or are they just not good enough which on paper it should be good enough to be top 8 easy, tactically the manager is as good as there is, and hopefully if we can win tonight this season could still end up being a good season.

Sorry Gatesy, but our midfield never created anything worthwhile Calvin/ Richy and Kean have been living of scraps. Personally I haven't seen an improvement,
I went to St Mary's in November, were we took our time under Silva, to put away a very poor Southampton side, who at that time could hardly string a pass together. Yet the same players and manager are showing the most of the league how to play, work hard pass accurately. Yet though we have risen up the league in that time, we look pedestrian in comparison.
Hopefully we will make a few changes before next season, but most of our squad will be there next season, we cannot afford wholesale changes and you are living dreamland to think otherwise.
The other point is it will be a short close season for Carlo to coach some bad habits and attitude out of them.

Can't criticize Walcott, he looked like a player who hasn't played a game since March, however so did most of the others. The passing was atrocious, Pass to a teammate, or if you pass into space make sure the 60/ 40 is in our favour, not the opposition. Carlo must be having second thoughts. Telling your team what to do, and game after game then watch them unable to do it.

Carrm down, carrm down, it is no very silly season. We will get associated with anyone and everyone as nothing can be done just total speculation and lazy journalism. We like Spurs have to watch the pennies if we move to Bramley Dock.
You want to start a rumour can we afford to move there if this continues towards 2021.

Don't get your hopes up.

1) We will not have much cash to spend this window with FFP hanging over us.
2) We have other more important areas to buy than goalkeeper.
3) Who is out there we can afford that is better. Even Kepa and Alison are making regular mistakes.
Yes he is prone to make a mistake but he also of making match winning/ drawing saves.
Let's get behind them instead of putting them down.

I am not getting over excited about one glass of champagne, but it was great to watch an Everton side actually compete for 90 minutes of a game. I can't remember the last time! ?

A bit more positive about the first game, at least now whoever we play in midfield against Spurs will either have to play for their future or a move. Otherwise they show what mercenaries they are.
