Sorry but I'd take Costa all day. Pure hustle and bustle centre forward and he's clinical.
We could easy get 2 seasons out of him.
He would put us in Europe.


1.) 08 Jul 2019 11:21:50
Have to disagree, think he’d be too much of a liability and no guarantee he’d get us in to Europe particularly as we need the whole team pulling together.

Why would you be happy signing a potential has been? Can’t imagine he would be coming for the challenge but more likely the pay day he would receive.

Surely we should be looking to be buying someone young and hungry to succeed who will fit in with Marcos style of play.

2.) 08 Jul 2019 11:25:19
Do not think he would come but he is more trouble than he is worth and wsould ruin are wage structure so a big no no from me.

3.) 08 Jul 2019 11:50:09
I'd rather test Leicesters resolve than go for Costa. they've spent big this summer. they say everyone has their price, let's throw big money at them for Vardy, he'd be good for a couple of seasons.

4.) 08 Jul 2019 14:57:59
We have a player in Walcott that requires the kind of service Vardy would and he doesn't get any service from the way we play.
Vardy as much as i would like him, wouldn't suit our style of play.
Costa would but i would only agree if it was a 12 month loan.

5.) 08 Jul 2019 19:09:51
If Costa is (a) excited to come play for us and (b) wanted by Brands and Silva not just Moshiri, I'm all for it. I trust if (b) is true, Brands and Silva will make sure (a) is also true before signing him. If he is coming for the paycheck, I'm against it. And, if he's coming to be a trophy signing, I'm very against it.

I have no interest in Vardy. He's older than Costa and doesn't have nearly the upside as Costa. Plus Vardy's skills (e. g. speed) are the ones that go with age whereas Costa's power and nose for the goal stick around a bit longer.

I'm still dreaming of Moise Kean. And, if not, then another young gun up top. Or, just letting DCL continue to improve along with Richarlison and add on the right wing instead (although in addition to is preferable) .

6.) 08 Jul 2019 19:31:33
Well hi again Ed hope u good me nah mate pissed of Everton fan y mmm normal service has resumed all links and rumours about neres Few getting excited prospect of brill strike force but no either he’s stopping at Ajax man rubbish united sniffing after him and top it off delph from Man City r we having a laugh delph ain’t good enough for England team never mind us management no what we need y don’t they sto about make a realistic bid and get the players we need costa yes please he can do the job or is he second choice as chances of neres seems slipping away as per usual rant over sorry bout the language but same as always in transfer window players we want we miss or don’t follow up with bids and end up with rubbish rant over cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - Life can be a pelican.}

7.) 08 Jul 2019 19:35:25
Oh by the way dcl not good enough ok he’s young but in my eyes be few seasons yet before we see anything from him think his chances av come and gone my three up front ok may be dream Bernard costa richarlason dcl subs bench just saying.

8.) 08 Jul 2019 21:28:52
Players we were linked to in the papers last season.
Gibson and Mawson, ended up with Zouma.
Tierney and Joe Bryan, ended up with Digne.
Seri and Wilshire, ended up with Gomez
Batshuayi and Balotelli, ended up with Richarlison.
Ghezzal and Yarmolenko, ended up with Bernard.

I think Brands has it covered. Don't you?

{Ed025's Note - great answer smit..

Great post Smit.

11.) 09 Jul 2019 12:30:47
3 pearlers on deadline day as well. Patience is key.

12.) 10 Jul 2019 16:29:22
When Walcot came to us via Alardyce it was on a promise he would be allowed freedom to roam across the front line, having coveted the strikers position for the last few seasons. Obviously having seen him in training successive Managers/ Coaches do not see it Walcots way. Vardy may indeed thrive but my own opinion is we already have a good target man in Tosun, he needs a run of games. Alas our impatience (I include myself in that weakness) , does not allow the chance of consistency for either players or Managers. I am trying to change.



04 Jul 2019 11:18:12
If zouma lands I would be seriously annoyed if we don't go all out and land a goalscorer. I think we have enough creativity in the squad and the defence would be solid enough.
The missing piece of our jigsaw is a goalscorer.
If we enter the new season without at least bidding for a quality striker I honestly will be tearing my hair out. I have faith in M&M though so fingers crossed.


1.) 04 Jul 2019 11:44:03
I would assume we are going all out to land a goalscorer. It's obvious we need one but it's a really difficult position to fill. Some of the names that are getting thrown about (one's that seem realistic) don't fill me with much though. If we get Zouma and shift a few more out I would say it's been a good window.

A lot of new players last season went straight into the starting 11, taken them the time to gel, I'm condfident even if we don't get a goal scorer we will get more goals than last season. It's just wheteher that will be enough.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 18:57:37
I’m with you fatchris, goalscorers from other leagues don’t always work out in Prem, and we should know. If we get Zouma then great. If we don’t get this mythical 20 goal striker then that’s fine, work with what we have.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 20:14:41
Like everyone else I would like a striker who can score 15-20 goals a year. However they don't come cheap and the best probably want European football. What we can't afford to do is get another expensive flop who can't score for us and we end up having to loan out in an attempt to recover some of the cost. Hopefully Brands has identified some young player with potential who we can get at a reasonable cost.

{Ed002's Note - To be fair Mike one of the issues is that Everton have not given a sustained chance to the likes of Tosun.}

4.) 04 Jul 2019 20:27:33
Agreed ed002, Was thinking more about Ramirez than Tosun.

5.) 04 Jul 2019 20:39:11
I would like to think if tosun had as many minutes as DCL then I think he would have scored a lot more goals. I agree that he hasn't really been given a chance.

6.) 04 Jul 2019 21:12:43
The answer is staring us right in the face. Richarlison scored as many last season as most strikers we could realistically buy.
What we need is Bernard, our right winger (whoever that may be next season) to chip in with 10-15 between them. Also Gomes will most likely get more than his 1 goal this season.
I'd stick with Richarlison and DCL and wouldn't be gutted if we didn't sign a striker.
Sign Malcolm for the right and a young raw striker to bring through in 1 to 2 seasons.

7.) 05 Jul 2019 00:18:21
Agree Smit, and we already have a young striker coming through in Ellis Simms.

8.) 05 Jul 2019 07:12:18
I take your point about Richarlison and certainly don't want us to blow loads of money on a striker that isn't good enough, but for me Richarlison was less effective up top than out wide. I don't think it's ideal to take the edge off one of your key players by playing him out of position! Having said that if we don't get a striker in I won't be doom-mongering and will trust Richarlison to do a job for us!

9.) 05 Jul 2019 09:01:49
I agree with you Toffee and Ed02. I don't understand why Tosun hasn't ben given more of a chance, even of the bench when the defence is tired and a bit slower. I also don't think we should play Richarlison up top, he scores more, creates more and draws defenders to him on the wing, it's a no brainer for me.

I am sure if Tosun had the play time of DCL he would have scored more but I doubt he could work as hard of the ball as DCL could. I hope he gets a sustained chnace next year.

10.) 05 Jul 2019 09:51:01
I agree with your points on Tosun, however, if we don’t sign a striker, for me you’ve got to stick with DCL. He occupiers both centre halves, offers physicality, aerial threat, runs the channels, he works the centre halves far more than Tosun who is just a finisher for me. If there was some way of getting Tosun and DCL up top as a pair, I think that could really work well, although that wouldn’t happen as it would mean Bernard, Richarlison or sigurdsson would miss out.

11.) 05 Jul 2019 15:25:12
Richarlison scored 6 off the left, 5 as a striker and 3 on the right. He played similar amount of games in all those positions.
I think another season up front and he'd get more as he learns the role.
Put him on the left and where does Bernard go?
I'd give him another season moving across the front 3.

12.) 05 Jul 2019 21:26:53
Tosun knows where the net is but i'm not sure he has the first touch or the pace for what MS wants.
He showed when he arrived he can score goals but we play a different style now than we did under Fat Sam.

As regards Richarlison, he is clearly happier out wide so leave him there. He scored more goals from the left side BUT probably gave us more balance when he played right as we then had two good partnerships - Digne / Bernard and Coleman / Richarlison.

I keep hearing from Ed002 that we have too many left wingers. Yet we don't actually have a left footed left winger. So maybe Marco just wants the option?

For me, Mirallas can go, Walcott not good enough, Lookman has all the ability but by all accounts a poor attitude - so suddenly we are light on the flanks.

Richarilson and Bernard as the first choice wide men. Lookman and A. N. other as back up.

But if we are serious about top 6 ( and dare I say top 4) then we definitely need someone more prolific than Tosun or DCL.

Great from the bench or in DCL case in a couple of years. But we have had enough of 'manana'. Beed a top striker now.



13 Jun 2019 21:23:07
We have approached juve for moise kean 😮.


1.) 14 Jun 2019 15:15:12
I think this just means he’s angling for a new contract and our name is being thrown around to try get an improved deal.i

2.) 14 Jun 2019 19:16:09
Season long loan at best, no way we'd get him on a permanent deal.

3.) 15 Jun 2019 12:13:01
He has a big big issue with racism in Italian football. don't dismiss this one straight away . it's got legs.



15 May 2019 10:43:21
Please tell me this digne rumour isn't true. it's inconceivable surely?


1.) 15 May 2019 11:56:02
Absolutely 0% chance of it being true.



05 Feb 2019 00:30:43
Our problem is and has been (for a few seasons) that we are predictable.
Any pace running at our defence and we crumble.
A long ball hoisted in high and we panic.
We cannot defend. We haven't got a goal scorer. We haven't got any creativity in midfield.

We sold our best players.
We never replaced them wirh adequate quality.
We let out best prospects leave the club without having a crack and then we persevere with kids who are never going to make it at this level.
I think brands will get it right but I don't have any faith in Silva.
I'm hoping brands will eventually bring van bommel over and they can work together again and solve this mess.

Brands rates him as the best up and coming coach in Europe. If he didn't choose Silva but agreed to work with him then i'm sure he has a name already in mind.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 07:49:20
All looking good then Pauly? . I think things are slightly different to how you see it mate. I think we have defended rubbish this season. As simple as that. Lots of games have been ok. We played well at Chelsea, Liverpool, Burnley and a few others. In other games we appeared to crumble. We did that also under Koeman, Martinez and to some degree under Allardyce. Moyes left us a decent but ageing squad. Martinez brought in older or inferior players with the exception of one or two. ie Lukaku, McCarthy and Barry. When Pienaar, Osman, Jags, Baines, Howard, Distin, Hibbert, Oviedo, Stones, Barkley, Naismith, Heitinga, Jelavic, Neville, Cahill, Fellani, Rodwell, Anichebe and others were all allowed to leave or retire without being suitably replaced. Lukakus goals covered up the inadequacies of the squad developing. Koeman then had that dreadful transfer window whereby we had no left sided players and Baimes' age started to show. Colemans is too now, Moyes had a continual line of players of quality coming in and going out. When he took over, our Walter Smith assembled squad was poor. Moyes reduced the age in his 1st 2 seasons. I am not saying I want Moyes back. But I am saying Silva is doing the same. But Silva seems to insist on Zonal marking and seems to have the team set up that leaks goals. Oh for a solid defence. That is where we are missing something. Less goals conceded would help immediately.

2.) 05 Feb 2019 10:53:14
I’m not sure how we replace someone like Lukaku adequately. We sell him to possibly the biggest club in the world playing CL football almost year in year out. If there was a like for like replacement why would he come to us if he’s at Lukakus level?

Basically when we sell our best players it’s going to be very similar to the Lukaku situation. When city took lescott we replaced him with Distan who was almost 10 years older. When arsenal took Arteta we got Drenthe. It’s just the way it is for us. We play in the league below the top six and therefore replacing players who move to these top six clubs is going to very difficult if we are looking to go like for like.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 12:53:47
Ricky will get 15-20 this season, siggy 10-15 If we can get a striker who can get 15 and a r/ w that can get 5-15 then scoring goals wise we will be ok.
Like Degsy says we need a resolution to the leaking goals, that's where the confidence comes from.
Now I'm not sure how we do that, whether we change the players, tactics or manager.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 16:24:40
Isn't this basically what I've said in my post?

5.) 06 Feb 2019 12:35:30
Regarding adequately replacing Lukaku, I actually don't think he is a top striker despite the number of goals he got for us. The team had been set up to play to his strengths with balls in behind he could run on to and bully defenders who couldn't cope with his strength and speed. We then had that ridiculous summer where we sold him and replaced him with half a dozen bang average number 10s.

My point is that it was the effectiveness of the system from a goal-scoring perspective in a way that played to the players' strengths. We haven't adequalty replaced that because Silva has come in dead set on a way of playing but doesn't have the players to do it.

Either he caves and starts playing in a way that suits the players at his disposal (balls into the opposition box and out of our box would be a start) , or he sticks with it in the hope that an overhaul of players that can't adapt being replaced with ones who have experience of playing that way in the summer will turn things around.

I'm sick of watching us make the same mistakes every week and am really not sure Silva is the long term answer, but I don't see any benefit in changing him now and adding him to the growing list of highly paid former employees while bringing in someone new to inherit the same problems.

I don't see why we don't go for a Costa and dzeko pairing up front?
Seriously can you imagine them 2 in the area for us? They might be 30 something but I would love to see those 2 getting on the end of all the chances we create.


1.) 08 Jul 2019 10:00:32
Why don’t we get back up with Crouch and Andy Carroll while we are at it.
This is West Ham model - sign players that used to be good in the PL for other clubs and expect levels of performance which they had years ago - Give them 3 year contracts on a fortune and no sell on value at all.

We should have learnt not to do this from Ginola, Gasgoine, Eto, Rooney etc.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 14:27:31
The difference here though is these 2 are still playing and performing at the top level. The other names you mentioned were not.
You can't compare dzeko and Costa with crouch and carrol mate. bad shout that and made no sense at all.



10 Mar 2019 13:10:39
I thought we'd turned a corner judging by our first half performance but yet again we conceded 1 goal and fall apart. The worrying aspect for me was just how fit Newcastle looked in the last 20 mins compared to us.
I don't agree with taking off the best players in the game as i feel we lost our threat and in turn we had no outlets.

We changed a formation that was working incredibly well and that seemed to help Newcastle. a lot of peole are blaming pickford and I agree he was erratic to day the least and he obviously needs serious competition and fast but for me the blame has to lay at the managers feet.
He had no reason whatsoever to make the changes he did. There were 20 odd mins left and Newcastle were beaten. They couldn't cope with Bernard and his link up play with digne was stretching Newcastle and keeping them from from venturing too far forward. He then takes richarlisom off and Newcastle were free.

Yes pickford messed up and could've been red carded but he wasn't and he hadn't conceded.
Sorry but for me i am starting to think we have some really good players that could be wasted under the current regime. I'm not calling for his head but he is starting to worry me.


1.) 10 Mar 2019 14:38:22
Pickford needs to take a good look at himself.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 16:18:25
It's the way Prickford smiles when he does mess up that gets me.

3.) 10 Mar 2019 17:42:41

5.) 10 Mar 2019 18:09:15
I know bluemarc why? and this is englands No1.I know he's young but he's not that young.

6.) 10 Mar 2019 19:45:56
I wouldn't read too much into him smiling after a mistake, we all react differently when we mess things up and this is probably just the way he reacts. I highly doubt the smiling is out of happiness, the lad does have personal pride.
No getting away from the fact that he could do with taking out of the limelight but, unless MS is brave enough to give the other young lad a go, I can't see it happening. I don't think MK is good enough to step in and do a job for us, some of you may think different. The only bonus side to it is that Pickford is still young and will learn from these mistakes. If he's still making clangers next season then it will become more of a problem. As others have said in various posts, a bit of competition for his place may help the lad.

7.) 11 Mar 2019 01:56:33
More baffling was the dropping of Schnids, these last couple of weeks we were on the shoots of recovery, so strange he never started, even more so not bringing him on, when we were 2 nil up, he has had his critics, me included, but the guy has stood up to the plate this season, played in 11 games and on the losing side only twice, three if you include a penalty shoot out.

8.) 10 Mar 2019 23:03:11
First of all I reckon all of you were praising him at the World Cup? Secondly the Toon fans broke him and they won that game. Please don't turn into body language experts as you have no idea. Yes he was erratic but I'm finding it very hard not to swear at you right now. Did you clap when he saved the peno? I'm guessing yes. Very fickle.

9.) 11 Mar 2019 07:17:05
I'm no body language expert, and I'm not fickle but if the lad has messed up then take it on the chin and get on with it and grow up.

10.) 11 Mar 2019 07:19:45
Good call that big nev. The bloke (having been the real Schneids to turn up the last two games, good partnership with Gueye) posts on twitter big thanks to the fans and then he is dropped. Are we seeing a big ego I am right (despite evidence to the contrary) everyone else is wrong going on from Silva I wonder.



13 Feb 2019 00:30:21
Van bommel anyone?


1.) 13 Feb 2019 07:37:06
No chance.



28 Jan 2019 20:49:00
So Silva has had a bad run. People comparing past managers and even wanting moyes back? So where do we go?

I didn't want bobby, based purely on his cv.
I didn't want koeman, again based on his cv.
I didn't want allardyce, based on his cv.
I didn't want Silva, but not because of his cv.

I didn't want Silva because I didn't believe the job was of a calibre he could handle.
I think he believes he is right for the job and out of all the managers I have mentioned I think he is the one to give me hope.
I watched the game yesterday and I am worried for him.

I am worried for him because I don't see any player that looks like they are playing for him. I can't pick individuals apart because that's not fair but I can pick tactics apart. We are naive. We are predictable. We are weak in attack.

Will he get it right? He has the confidence.
Will we give him time? I don't know.
Do i want to give him time? Yes.

Pickford needs to command his area.
We need a CH that will scream the house down.
We need a MD that can dictate play.
We need a goalscorer.
Do i think Silva can do this? I don't know.

We are now using man city like we did man Utd. "Oh they'll bring a winning mentality and leadership"
Behave yourself!
It's a backward step yet again.
If gana wants to go then yes I agree let him go, but at least go and find a player that is either younger or if we insist on players at the end of their careers at least get one who isn't injury prone or a bit part player used to fill problem positions who never ever lived up to his expectations!

Sorry but, he's not going to be a Barry. Barry was and always has been a great player. What the ef has Fabian delph ever done to deserve this transfer?
Evertonians saying great business?
Basic and McCarthy are far better players. Davies and baningime are far better prospects.

Costa was too old and didn't fit into Marco and marcels "team ethics" yet Fabian delph does?!

A man who has had about 3 games in the last 4 yrs and we are going to accept his signing as "great business for 8 mil" and slate an attempt at Costa?

Skylark you have to have a look at how many knocks and snide challenges Gomes takes from the opposition. I personally prefer a midfielder with a bit of fire in his belly. he will be a great signing. at least we have a player who can turn a game and mix it up with the opposition when required. I mean c'mon who was the last fella who played for us with his ability and aggression?
