So if the Sams and company are gone, does that leave Dunc in charge of the first team for now?

Folks, this was a darn good window for transfers. If the right striker wasn't available for something other than silly money, don't waste it. And what if he bought Mr. Perfect Nine and his hamstring goes ka-pow in training, will folks be mad that RK didn't buy a spare?

And if we bought Mr. Perfect Nine for 100 million, somebody would fuss that Calvert-Lewin and Sandro aren't getting playing time.

The team is better and deeper. Last year we won with Lukaku or lost without him. Now Plan B (3 or 4 players scoring 10 each) is Plan A.

Mark my words doom-Sayers: Everton will rock and roll this year. Now get positive and get behind the boys.

Good post New Blue in the U.

My sentiments exactly NBTB.

Ditto to that mate, far too many doom slayers on here at the mo.

4.) 03 Sep 2017 11:06:53
100% with you there. The negativity amongst some blues is astounding and embarrassing. We've been beaten once only this year in all competitions, is that not a good start?

{Ed025's Note - i tried to instill to you all the importance of patience when we started this journey pierre, this is basically a new team who dont know each others play patterns or moves, these things take time and rome was not built in a day...but if everton supporters were on that job im sure it would have been mate..

5.) 03 Sep 2017 12:31:08
Some posters on here have never experienced a successful period of time. But for those who have we can remember how bleak it was looking under Kendall until halfway through one cup match it all changed. The team until then had new players that weren't gelling.

But when it did, boy we looked unstoppable at times. I loved those days and will never forget the tangible swing of success in our favour.

So if it's looking a bit disjointed or the signings aren't looking to be as good as we'd hoped. Remember the last time we were the best there was. That should give you all hope.

{Ed025's Note - i remember it well ace, one goal from inchy and the rest is history mate..

I to remember that game talk about lows and highs! But today Managers do not have the luxury of time, they live and die on a clubs success, which is why the top teams buy top players and look for instant results! I am happy we develop youngsters but as good a window as we had I'm sure RK is disappointed not to have bought in a new number 9, and money would have had nothing to do with it!

7.) 03 Sep 2017 15:53:21
Was also there, seems like yesterday, may R K get us back there cheers.

Liverpool fans and Spurs fans go on about seasons of transition. This is our first genuine season of transition and people are moaning. We have a better squad than last season even without a Lukaku. We will consolidate 7th then push on next season.

9.) 04 Sep 2017 00:01:57
What's the story behind this? What game was it? What exactly happened until that game? Thanks.

10.) 04 Sep 2017 16:05:23
Everton v Oxford Utd 1984 League Cup. Adrian Heath equalised with 10 mins to go (saving Howard Kendall the sack) and we won the replay. We reached both the League and FA cup finals winning the latter and the rest as they say is history :-)

11.) 04 Sep 2017 18:47:59
Toffee Ace, I to remember that Team. That 80's side particularly in the tackle always doubled up, it was a wonder to watch. The pressure we managed in attack was also phenominal. The difference between then and now is increased speed, stamina and overall fitness means that system is very hard to play.

12.) 04 Sep 2017 22:06:47
Good post wakka! Some of my posts have probably been filed under the "doom Sayers" and negative inbox, but to be fair some also of what I have read is hope and praying beyond any rational thoughts. Better squad than last year, that only applies if the teams above you have not strengthend, and the one we finished closest too has, oh my word it has. People I was there in the 80s when we had x3, yes 3 years of brilliance whilst our neighbours beat us in both cup finals and I sat and watched us fall from this peak. I pray I do that things will change, but again we have MORE players who are currently in our squad who want out than players seemingly wanting to join us. All I ask is WTF is going on. (And don't get me started on Kitbag, Umbro or that kit we are wearing at home this season. NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM, folks NIL SATIS NISi OPTIMUM.

13.) 04 Sep 2017 22:22:19
All correct above and to add to the posts, we brought in two old heads in Reid and Gray, could Rooney be the one to fire this team up like they did, big ask but you never know.



04 Jul 2017 11:23:51
As I sit here poolside by the beaches of South Carolina I cannot believe that this is my Everton. I believe that one more forward player who can score goal is all we need and we are much better than last year.

I watch some highlights of Dembele from Celtic play and it seems he tends to score only one of the defenders are falling backwards. He appears quick but that may just be the quality of the defenders and the Scottish league.

It appears we have a great group of young forwards ready in the next 1 to 2 years to play a big role in the Premier league. For me I would rather have Oliver Giroud as he is a known quantity and will make us instantly better with very little downside in the next 2 to 3 years.

And as I have seen some posts on other sites I don't care how much Everton spends and nor do I care what the resale value of a player is in 3 to 4 years.

In six weeks I think the top four should be more afraid of us then we will be of them. COYB.

It will take a huge sprint at the beginning, considering our start-up.

Just a crazy thought while we all wait. And wait. And wait some more.

interesting article from Foxsports about Simeone pondering his future. Apparently he wants to coach at Inter Milan before his career is over.

Simone to Inter and Mancini to Everton?

Louis van Gaal is about to be unemployed. How about LVG as a Director of Football and Big Dunc as the onfield manager?

Yeah, just trying to bide the time until the next manager is announced, likely after June 1st.

New Blue in the U

{Ed025's Note - there is biding time...and beating yourself up with a big stick mate..

1.) 26 Apr 2016 20:21:29
Actually I'm being 1/ 2 serious. Moyes took over, as I recall, an aging Manc team and wasn't able to turn the team around. With LVG and two years of work, he has a likely FA Cup this year, an outside shot at the CL this year, and CL last year, and emerging young talent (Martial) .

This is an odd year with LC and the Spurs 1 and 2.

At least I'm not posting about Brenda taking the job.

2.) 27 Apr 2016 11:37:56
LVG too old for me.
Heaven forbid we get Buck Rodgers, just another chancer like the one we have now. Can you imagine the Welsh Xavi in an Everton shirt. Even I could get a team to almost win the Prem if I had Suarez.
OMG no, not Rodgers.

Exciting times with a brand new midfield.


Are we selling a commodity that has not been mentioned, like Ricky or Digne? Selling our excess players aforementioned wouldn’t pay for the private flights into Lennon. Or did management find all the Arteta spare change in Bill K. ’s couch?

New Blue in the U



24 Nov 2019 21:59:40
Thus far our last three managers have been ineffectual despite significant investment in players' salaries.

We believe there to be potential is some of the players brought in (Sidbe, Ghambin, Richarlison, etc. ) . We sold some good players (Gana and Lukaku) .


Is Brands actually producing, or is he a part of the lack of success and rampant underachieving?

Do we need a DOF? If so, is Brands up for the EPL?

New Blue in the U

1.) 24 Nov 2019 22:24:25
Or is it the players just don’t care?
Regardless of winning or losing they get their ridiculous salaries - until players get performance related pay why will they want to bust a gut?
Some may put in a performance to get into their national team or for a move elsewhere but it’s not the whole squad. I've never seen anything like it, they don’t appear to care in the slightest - us mugs paying our hard earned to support them and then get served up dire performance whilst they then swan off at the end of the match without a care.

2.) 25 Nov 2019 07:44:33
Couldn't agree more Gingerdan, IMO we are now watching players who grew up in academies and not playing football in the streets or in the park. Therefore it is just a job to them. I also think this is why we don't see many leaders now and that's not only at our club. They have grown up being told what to do and not being able to think for themselves. I am also seeing the change in local footballers in my area as the lads coming through now are the generation of 'everyone gets a medal for taking part'

Im no Silva fan but you do have to wonder about the mental attributes of the modern day footballer. Wrapped up in cotton wool comes to mind. Some may disagree and that's fair enough its their option but as I have said this is my take on the modern footballer.



08 Aug 2019 16:44:48
You would thing Everton got relegated to the MLS today based on the somber mood.

C’mon folks, Brands and Silva got a bunch of guys they wanted. Time for some of the fringe and young players to step up.

Good season ahead, make Goodison a powder keg of positivity!

New Blue in the U

{Ed025's Note - absolutely new blue..

1.) 08 Aug 2019 17:08:01
Think = thing.

Mina has not had the chance to show his wares. He has that chance now. A full season with Richarlison, Gomes, Digne and now Kean and Gbamin? Me thinks things are looking good.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 17:10:13
On the game I will be positive. But right now I am disappointed. We are light on quality in certain areas. It is not the day we wanted. People are coming to that realisation now.

{Ed025's Note - it was not great tit, but far from a disaster mate..

3.) 08 Aug 2019 17:26:55
Light in quality.
People need to get there head straight here. Just because Mina has been injured he’s suddenly no good, and so are team is weaker.
Think back, remember Zouma and Pickford leaving the ball for each other? What I’m getting at is it took time for Zouma to settle. Give Mina a chance before you hang him out to dry.
Oh and by the way it looks like we have just signed Iwobi. But hey we sold Macca so we must be weaker.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 17:51:38
Woburn, Mina was a mistake, purchased on the strength of his goal against England. He simply is not good enough for the Prem. I hope he proves me wrong.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 18:45:00
You honestly believe Brands brought Mina on the strength of a goal seriously, Brands is a top football man with an outstanding knowledge of the game, it’s insulting to think he took that approach.



06 Aug 2019 14:14:41
Does Everton get a sell on fee for Rooney? 😆.

New Blue in the U

1.) 06 Aug 2019 19:23:47
No but we don't have to stomach paying part of his wages anymore.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 22:44:55
I forgot about us paying part of his wages still. Good shout smit.



16 May 2019 14:06:40
If MC gets a CL ban that goes into effect this coming 19/ 20 season, would Everton possibly slide up into the EL?

Can we get Yarmolenko this time around?

{Ed002's Note - No, Everton were not good enough to qualify.}

That’s okay. Thanks Ed002. Would rather focus on the domestic cups this season in any case.

2.) 17 May 2019 16:46:14
Totally with you finishing 8th this season was better than 7th let’s concentrate on league and domestic cups were not ready to mount challenge in Europe and close gap on top 6.

Iwobi on RW, Ricky on LW, Kean in the middle. Sounds fun. Thin At CB, but we have 4 in Keane, Mina, Holgate, and Gbamin. Then we have youth. Cheer up folks. Too much gloom and doom.

If so it is good business. Likely has a sell on clause as well. I will have faith that Silva feels they can let him go. I remember how we felt about Garbutt, Galloway, and others in the past. Besides if he wants to go, you can’t have an angry player seething on the bench.

Only three numbers should concern Supporters: total points on the table, goal differential, and how many goals we score to beat Liverpool.

I’ll leave the finances to someone else on the Board Not my money to worry about.

Steven Naismith. 110% effort. His hat trick as a substitute against Chelsea in 2015 was one of the best Everton performances I have seen in my 9 years as an Evertonian. (My first match in 2013 was the 1-0 victory at home against Man U. )

Good to see you Swan.

He’s young and he will not learn to shoot on the bench. He needs a loan, maybe League One where he can start a whole season and spend time shooting and developing confidence. If he can’t elevate that part of his game, then we can keep looking for a striker next year.

I’d keep Tosun as a back up striker.

Better no deal than a bad deal made any day. No panic purchases. Mina steps up for Zouma. Gbamin for Gana, Kean an upgrade on Lookman. Delph is in, along with a solid RB in Sidibe. Team has had a year to learn Silva’s system. Squad has been trimmed. six players in and more out. More will be out to Europe on loan or transfer.

Don’t lose the plot folks.
