My ex pat boss in Germany (Evertonian) went to the Baltic coast at the weekend and got talking with a bloke who is an agent who deals mainly in the German leagues. The agent said a Russian contact of his is in the process of offering Daler Kuzyayev to Everton from Zenith St Petersburg. He was supposedly in the Russian squad at the last world cup. Offering as opposed to doing a deal! Have any of the eds heard of this one?

{Ed025's Note - im afraid i have not nick, the only guy who would is ED002 i imagine, i will ask him if hes on tomorrow mate..

1.) 11 Jan 2020 09:30:45
I've read kuzyaev can sign a pre contract so hence the agent offering him about. As for how he plays, he's a centre mid and that's all I know not sure how good he is.

I wonder how much of these rumours about Allardyce, Dyche, Moyes and co, are actually red herrings allowed to sneak out by the board to take the scent off the actual manager/ s they are making contact with. I just cannot believe that Morishi is prepared to outlay so much money on players and a new stadium, just to employ managers who at best will keep us mid table with the odd venture into europe every decade, or am I deluded in my thoughts.

1.) 02 Nov 2017 08:11:45
everyone but santa is been linked to the job, see hiddink is the latest suspect.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 08:39:55
We don't do red herrings. At this rate we will be getting linked to Iain Dowie.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 11:04:26
Go the whole high and get Alan Curbishley, Steve McLaren or Bob Bradley.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 16:35:14
has anyone mentioned harry yet.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 20:06:21
Everyone moaning about allardyce we desparately need him because we leak 3 goals a game and are going down ATM. He guarantees survival and then we can build from there by getting rid of the expensive rubbish Walsh and Koeman decided to bring in and add some real quality alongside the quality kids we have coming through.

6.) 02 Nov 2017 20:36:19
I agree, desperate times need desperate measures. The way we've lost the confidence in the team is alarming. Our best player tonight was a 17 year old and embarrassed schneiderlen. I think this job is too big for Dyche and wouldn't be confident in a foreign big name, I wouldn't be surprised if big Sam came tomorrow.

7.) 02 Nov 2017 21:52:44
As things stand even Ian Dowie wouldn’t take the job.

8.) 03 Nov 2017 08:13:45
a manager will not solve efc's problems. doesn't matter who they bring in he will soon realise that the squad needs replacing. we have 7 or 8 young and good players, beyond that there is nothing at the club. how officials at our club haven't seen the obvious is beyond me, without singling out any particular players it has been disappointing since unsy took over. when he did vlasic started to look like he was settling in at the club under what has to be said difficult circumstances first thing he does is drop him. and plays more or less the same players out of positions, as koeman did. they say a definition of madness is to keep doing the same thing and expect things to work out differently. i don't know what i expected from unsy, tbh. i thought he would see that rooney can't play up front and maybe drop morgan or gana and play rooney there or sig use vlasic and cal, niasse as forwards which they are but, so far rooney now sig up front shows he doesn't understand the problems we have. all season our whole forward line has dropped into midfield so we have been pressured more and more as games have gone on and managers tactics and formations are the problem. not since gordon lee have i seen an everton side this lacking in everyway possible. we have to be careful what we do next bring in the wrong guy and nothing will change several of our first team players cannot and must not be allowed to be on the same pitch at the same time. rooney mid no sig sig mid no rooney. gana no morgan, morgan no gana, we are presenting ourselves as a team to be attacked cause eventually all these players drop way to deep into the same positions and no longer look like they can kick a ball, falling over themselves. its a shame that unsy didn't see this right off the bat and start playing 4 1 3 2 with cal kev and vlasic up front, rooney or sig with benni and macca or gana or morgan as for the defence your guess is as good as mine. i think its clear unsy is not the man for the job which is a shame but he isn't coping with the big players at the club cause he is doing exactly what koeman did. there is a small change in personnel, but it's only a tweek on what koeman was doing when every fan can see we need a more radical solution. its not rocket science if someone is doing they're job poorly or having a difficult time they need dropping, its a football club. i am having a hard time believing we don't have any good defenders in our under 23 side that won prem 2 last year, surely a player who wins things and is hungry for a chance has to be better than what we put out. like i say shame unsy never got the point maybe we could be the first club of a reality tv show . the "ramsey esque" premier club nightmare where alex ferguson can go round clubs and watch games and they say "yeh you have problems. mainly your just sh*t. all joking aside things aren't as dire as they appear we need a manager who doesn't care what the under 23's are doing and wants to take them players from there and use them in the first team squad and one who watches games and can see what we all see and hopefully brings in the right players cause cal vlsaic and kev will be better off when we can defend and push out a bit.

{Ed025's Note - really good read that floats mate..

Easyjet regret to announce that flight EZY7103 to Madrid will be delayed by 30 minutes. This is due to Mr Farhad Morishi having to be checked in via a back door due to the huge gathering of press and media outside the terminal. Wonder why lol.

1.) 29 May 2016 14:01:29
It's departing on time.

2.) 29 May 2016 14:29:24
Can't tell if you are joking mate hope so not sure a billionaire is going to be flying easyjet :)

3.) 29 May 2016 14:34:34
Billionaires don't fly Easyjet Nick, he has gone by private jet, for more news.

4.) 29 May 2016 16:33:16
Hey lighten up boys it was just a bit of fun.

5.) 29 May 2016 17:43:33
Sorry Nick, I think we can say that we all want an appointment soon. It's the biggest one for years and REALLY needs to be the right one.

6.) 29 May 2016 17:51:40
Tough crowd Nick.

7.) 29 May 2016 19:17:37
Quite right Bobslad but we ain't going to make it. I am as eager as you that the board make the right appointment, but hey we can have some fun while we wait surely.

Good job I am not a comedian CToffee, I would died on stage lol.

8.) 29 May 2016 22:11:28
I thought it was nick just sometimes it's hard to tell with some of the posts on here.

I see 10 points from the next 12. COYB.

1.) 30 Dec 2019 15:20:46
Love the optimism. I'd be happy with 9 or 7.

2.) 30 Dec 2019 17:00:35
Think City is a big ask. With Ancelotti we need to have patience. 7 or 8 out of 12 would be an excellent return.

{Ed025's Note - if we got a point against city i would be delighted, we need to pack the midfield for me and lock keane in the dressing room..

3.) 30 Dec 2019 17:02:19
I think if we got 9 we would be there and there about the top 6.



23 Dec 2019 22:03:57
Just back from Tenerife to find we did actually get CA. I hope now we get behind the man (good or bad results to start with) , and give him the time and space he needs to do what we know he can do if he has the funds and support from above and below. I hope FM now takes a backseat from trying to run the club and allow those in the know to do it. There is no reason why we cannot be looking at top 4-6 in time with this guy at the helm. Just one thing. Where is Brands in all this?

1.) 24 Dec 2019 08:57:44
Difference now, is that we know we now have someone that has achievement been there and done it on his CV. With his profile it may even help to attract players that otherwise would have ignored us. As you say NickB57, patience is now the key and probably for the forseeable.



01 Dec 2019 17:24:21
Eds assuming we leave the EU. After the the Brexit transition has ended clubs will have to secure visa's for players they want to bring in. Do you think this might be an opportunity to limit the number of overseas players and concentrate on bringing through the UK youngsters? I think it would also level the playing field a bit more.

{Ed002's Note - The Visa rules that apply for footballers will extend to EU players. There have been several discussions about changing the home grown rules over many years and proposals have been made by UEFA to limit players on European matchdays (Platini proposed matchday ruling would look to limit the players available during the game to nine not homegrown). Similar plans have failed as home grown reserves would end up padding the bench and effectively have their career moving backwards. I don't think we will see a major change happen any time soon - the longer term perhaps something could happen. What you might well see is a smaller change from having a slightly reduced number of non HG players in the quad - a figure of 12 was proposed but perhaps a reduction from what it is now (17) to say 15 over a two year period might be more palatable.

Individual countries already impose local limits - Italy by a quota system for purchases outside of the Italian league. Spain has the Cotonou Agreement where African and Caribbean players are not counted against non-EU quotas (due to the Kolpak ruling), Ukraine limits non home grown players on the pitch to seven etc.. All of these anomalies would need to be worked out before you can get the balance right across the board.}

Cheers ed. Very interesting scenarios ahead.

2.) 01 Dec 2019 23:07:09
Tis true, the person doea indeed appear to have a grasp.



23 Nov 2019 20:35:07
Comment on BBC sports page that FM and BK met with Benitez two days ago. Do any of the eds know if there is any truth in this?

{Ed002's Note - No it is not true.}

1.) 24 Nov 2019 12:55:11
Cheers ed. I guess that Benitez is at Goodison and a news conference is planned at 3pm today is also not true.

{Ed002's Note - Right Nick.)



05 Nov 2019 18:51:43
DU DU DU DU DU DU DU Just when you thought it was safe. Moyes wants to come back to the Premiership. Aarrrrgh. I hope FM has not heard this. Please!

1.) 06 Nov 2019 12:50:29
Think we're safe, Nick, FM and the board don't seem to want to pull the trigger on Silva so Moyes will have to wait!

2.) 06 Nov 2019 15:33:37
He wants another crack at the PL, He basically reminds people of his record with us and Utd in this league to qualify him for a 'top 6' side, Ed01 must be quaking in his boots 😈.

{Ed001's Note - terrified mate! Please not the return of the Moyesiah!!!}

3.) 06 Nov 2019 18:48:53
I think he would fit in well there Ed001. Would get you the Championship lol.

EDs in order to clear the books for more spending, why can't we just cancel the contracts of those we can't get rid of. I know in business terms clubs don't like to do it, but how many more seasons might we be stuck with them? Is this a viable thing to consider?

{Ed002's Note - No it is not viable.}

Why don't we get Jake the Peg. Then we can cover LB, RB, and CB all in one lol.

I would love to believe it, but given FMs ability to get a top manager is quite poor, I can't see it happening. I did read the other day that Ancelotti thought we were below his expectations, whatever that means! I have more confidence that the brexit deal will be passed on Friday.

I don't see why we should spend more in Jan unless for a special player. I believe the squad with regular rotation is capable of 6th to 8th place with luck. At the end of the season have a list of who is going and, after the euros, a list of players who we want. If players are told now they are at risk, then it is up to them to put themselves in the shop window for prospective employers. You don't get bought if you are not performing. We still need the squad to come round to Carlos style of football. You never know some might actually take to it and improve. That's my take on it anyway.

For gods sake don't get on CAs back. He has almost the same players to deal with as did others. Don't scare him off. We need to get rid of Moyes players, Martinez players, Koeman players, Allardyce's players before we can even start yo have a half decent team.

This poor chap will have to have at least 3 windows to work with (if he stays that long) . The one thing he cannot buy is pride and passion. We certainly lacked that today. How many times did Liverpool win the ball back in defence and sent it forward?

Every time we won it back in defence 80% of the time we passed it back to Pickford who frightens the life out of me when that happens. We are in a mess there is no doubting that. CA is I am sure the man to do it, but I feel sorry for him as this will certainly test the man in him.
