Talk Sport reporting that he could be gone as early as tonight.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 18:24:45
Hope so.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 18:33:58
Need to draw a line. Can't see how he's going to turn this around. I take no joy in changing manager but it hasn't worked. Best Wishes but I have had enough.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 18:45:10
Could be something in this as Jim White works for them and he seems to know what's going on at Everton more than we do.

4.) 15 Jan 2022 18:50:43
I have been thoroughly in the Benitez in camp, and was delighted when we signed him, but my opinion in the last few weeks has changed he has to go. We can’t go on like this, how can a team with DCL, Richarlison and Gray be so negative? We cannot defend but try to win games by defending, when surely we need to use our talented attackers?

5.) 15 Jan 2022 18:53:40
Digne having a great game for Villa.

6.) 15 Jan 2022 19:21:57
I was in the Benitez camp and defended him a lot, I cannot fathom the reason for not starting Richarlison I was baffled,
Definitely need another centre back, Keane looks likely to slip up all the time!

Who would take the team now? Maybe it’s down to big Dunc and we have to role the dice.

7.) 15 Jan 2022 19:23:45
Bit kind, Duck, he was responsible for goal 2.

8.) 15 Jan 2022 19:23:46
I heard ( rumour ) that he has gone already.

9.) 15 Jan 2022 21:10:24
That was before the goal JB.



16 Jul 2021 18:03:38
Asmir Begovic given permission to talk to Everton according to Alan Myers.


1.) 17 Jul 2021 10:07:16
An underwhelming first transfer if it comes off. Solid second choice keeper though.

2.) 17 Jul 2021 10:45:39
Underwhelming it may be, but sadly you can't go into a season without a backup, and he'd do that job fine, so why wait!

3.) 17 Jul 2021 12:22:40
Good enough to keep Pickford on his toes. I’ll take it.

4.) 17 Jul 2021 16:13:54
Good enough back up.

5.) 17 Jul 2021 16:49:31
Better than paying £20m for Gollini. If Pickford can keep his head right he's a great keeper and hopefully Begovic is still good enough to keep him on his toes, would prefer Romero though.

6.) 17 Jul 2021 21:16:08
I think it’s a good piece of business and a sensible signing, not really sure why it’s underwhelming, he’s a back up keeper and a good one.

7.) 17 Jul 2021 21:31:02
Not as good as Romero. These Clubs see us coming.

8.) 18 Jul 2021 07:15:52
Good signing a good back up goalie.

9.) 18 Jul 2021 09:46:24
Maybe plans to sign Romero as well and sell Pickford. Then would have 2 good deal keepers, Romero first choice and money in the kitty for other players.

10.) 18 Jul 2021 14:48:24
Dont really follow the 'These clubs see us coming" comment Ducks? We're getting him on a free transfer.

Agree in general that we seem to vastly overpay on fees and wages but don't think a freebie is an example of it!

11.) 18 Jul 2021 09:56:42
It often feels like some of us Evertonians need our heads checking!

We need a back up keeper; Begovic is ideal for the role. Pickford is the first choice and should start 85%+ of games so many keepers won’t come to us as they won’t get much first team football. Romero would probably cost more and we are still facing at FFP. It also gives us a few years to try and develop a youth keeper or search for a future youth keeper.

I see this a good, sensible move if it come off. Olsen won’t be back after the robbery so our alternatives aren’t obvious to me right now.

12.) 18 Jul 2021 15:42:13
Spot on BR.

Florenzi off to PSG.


1.) 11 Sep 2020 16:12:07
So what.

2.) 12 Sep 2020 14:23:58
So what? He was mentioned as a possible signing for us (by Ed 002 I do believe) , that’s what. People like you get right under my collar, being rude for the sake of it from behind your keyboard. Very much doubt you’d have the cajones to be so rude in real life to people, There’d certainly be no crocodile tears if you were to me.

James Olley saying that EFC are close to a loan deal for Tomori from Chelsea.


1.) 08 Sep 2020 16:57:12
Not as experienced obviously as Zouma but far less clunky. This would be a fantastic loan.

2.) 08 Sep 2020 18:34:33
Is this pukka gen Ed’s?

{Ed025's Note - as far as i know it is pierre, we were in for him last year but the transfer embargo for chelsea put paid to that, it looks like it could be a 1year loan deal mate..

3.) 08 Sep 2020 18:53:12
I like our CB on the whole but he is a very good player. if we kept Braithwaite and Gibson we could set up with a back 3. 3-4-3

Holgate Keane Tomori

Coleman Allan Doucoure Digne

James DCL Richie

Although with current squad (including Doucoure) could have 4-2-3-1

Coleman keane Holgate Digne

Gomes Allan

James Doucoure Richie


Or 4-3-3


Coleman Keane Holgate Digne

Doucoure Gomes Allan

James DCL Richie

Or 3-4-1-2

Keane Mina Holgate

Kenny Doucoure Allan Digne


DCL Richie

Subs from

Lossol/ other gk
Braithwaite/ Mina/ Gibson
Gbamin (when/ if not injured)

If we get these players it allows us the have various formations and options with better players.

4.) 08 Sep 2020 19:03:47
Any idea if there’ll be an option to buy in the proposed Tomori deal?

5.) 08 Sep 2020 21:41:10
If not permanent then why hamper our kid defenders who can play 1st team (Branthwaite, Gibson) to help Chelsea bring on players. Branthwaite done nothing wrong to suggest he should be out the 1st team picture.

6.) 08 Sep 2020 21:51:44
Yeah that right bunk beds. Gives us great flexibility. And with Carlo leading the way I'm sure he will change it up depending on the opposition. I'm really excited for the season. I don't meant to sound greedy but a top class striker and keeper would be great as well, but settle for getting them next season. It's the departures I'm looking forward to now, I'm a bit worried that there's no rumours of them leaving.

7.) 08 Sep 2020 22:10:04
Theo to Leeds I read a moment ago.
But we do need to ditch 6 or so for sure.

8.) 08 Sep 2020 23:11:09

I'd happily let Braithwaite and Gibson play and yes they've done nothing wrong, but Tomori is probably better at mo. If we get him for a season they can go on loan and gain experience or we can play 3 at back which given amount of games, injuries and form both our young lads would likely get good game time🤷‍♂️.

9.) 08 Sep 2020 19:31:36
Cheers Ed.

{Ed025's Note - your welcome mate..

10.) 09 Sep 2020 07:33:51
If we bring in Tomori I expect both Gibson and Branthwaite to move out on loan to gain regular experience rather than play bit parts in our squad.



01 Sep 2020 20:28:27
Hearing people saying that Sigurdsson is maybe going to DC United? Any through Ed’s?


{Ed025's Note - i have not heard anything about that pierre, but lets hope so mate..

1.) 01 Sep 2020 21:27:14
I wish mate.

2.) 01 Sep 2020 21:31:50
Saw a headline on the athletic site, but said “eventual” transfer. Seemed a strange one Ed, but as you say mate, let’s hope so!

3.) 01 Sep 2020 21:41:53
My whole body is crossed for this to happen, he has given us nothing for 18 months or so,

4.) 01 Sep 2020 21:46:10
I think everyone is being a bit harsh on Gylfi, I believe that if we get Allan and Doucoure, Sigurdsson will look a much better player for us, trying to make him a conventional box to box midfielder is putting square peg in round hole, with dynamic players behind him I honestly expect to a vast improvement from Gylfi and also Bernard.

5.) 01 Sep 2020 21:54:46
Yeah just read it. Seems very informative with a breakdown of the finances but also smacks of a hypothetical fan scenario. Would be fantastic news. Surely he wants to play and if we get the rumours in, he won't get more than a handful of sub appearances right? Then again, he's done more than expected with his national side to satisfy his legend in his homeland and sitting on a bench for 2 years taking 100k a week must be difficult to give up.

6.) 01 Sep 2020 22:31:31
Been reported James Rodriguez done deal in last hour stories all over social media one I wanted to see over line next Allan exciting times ahead.

7.) 01 Sep 2020 23:03:01
That’s what’s being reported on official MLS website.

8.) 02 Sep 2020 11:07:20
Sorry Bluedanny but siggurdsson has had plenty of game time in his preferred position., hi actual stats from open player have never been that great, mirallas had better. Need to get rid of him ASAP and Bernard to, offers nothing.
Maybe they will be difficult to shift, but 220k to 250k a week saved if we can.

Seen a couple of claims that Gattuso has been approached. I don't know too much about him, anyone?


1.) 17 Jan 2022 14:11:04
I wouldn’t approach him, the guys a nutter. Likely to give you a slap.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 14:26:20
Brilliant that Woburn. can't stop chuckling. Getting some strange looks in work.

3.) 17 Jan 2022 14:32:57
Maybe some of the players need that?

Not sure he is the right man for the task though.

4.) 17 Jan 2022 14:45:24
A slap ? Could be a novel way of doing things from now on!



17 Jan 2022 10:57:45
I have a horrible feeling that Martinez will be brought back.


{Ed025's Note - me too pierre..

1.) 17 Jan 2022 11:25:56
Don’t think so mate so many turned on him at the end of his reign last time, Fonseca would be way better.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 11:34:05
Would have Martinez if he brings most of the Belgium team with him?.

3.) 17 Jan 2022 11:40:47
Love your optimism GB that the decision makers care what the fans feelings on any managerial appointment are.

Although to be fair if it was up to the fans to decide it could be 2030 before we reached agreement.

4.) 17 Jan 2022 11:44:15
I’m not sure what the board see in Martinez?

Look at the players he has at his disposal at Belgium and still hasn’t achieved much with them. That squad should be winning tournaments.

We need someone who know how to set up a back line and can coach them into defending.

Our attacking players are good and look very good when given the chance to attack, grey, Gordon, Richarlison, Townsend, DCL will get goals - but if we can’t defend then no hope.

5.) 17 Jan 2022 11:51:36
A lot of press reports suggesting that we have approached the Belgium authorities. Another of those "not sure about Managers" but hopefully if appointed he knows some young Belgium players that we could get on the cheap.

6.) 17 Jan 2022 12:05:29
Yeah goodness knows who will be our next manager and we can only speculate just can’t see Martinez even being considered, new names emerging this morning are Lucian Favre, Andrea Pirlo, Genaro Gattuso and so on and so on, none of know who it will be, just hope Mr Moshiri gets it right and we can all enjoy watching footy again.

7.) 17 Jan 2022 12:19:34
Hmmm someone who can coach a defence gingerdan I wonder who that would be!

8.) 17 Jan 2022 14:42:26
Wouldn't stress too much about who the new manager will be folks (apart from for those that need a name in order to start work on the ***** out banner) . We are an unattractive club, with a bunch of players with questionable attitudes and a fanbase that will force whoever it is out of we don't look like qualifying for Europe early in their tenure!

{Ed025's Note - ah well at least your feeling positive davey.. :)



16 Jan 2022 21:45:37
The club statement on his sacking is quite telling imo. Very short and no mention of thanking him for his efforts etc. very curt.


1.) 16 Jan 2022 21:57:29
What's to thank him for? Binning medical staff, Brands, Digne! who was next?

2.) 16 Jan 2022 22:24:02
He was a six month wrecking ball. Nothing to thank him for I'm afraid.

3.) 16 Jan 2022 23:14:09
Best thing he did was give us Demarai Grey.

4.) 16 Jan 2022 23:15:01
He more than likely used every excuse in the book with the board then finally Norwich was all they could take. . . the phrase 'peeing down our backs and claiming it was raining ' etc. .
However even though Rafa had to go, it seems to me there are plenty questions to be asked with the the guys in suits chomping on canapés downing expensive wine ? and giving it the big talk on what's best for the club Hmmm. . . well hows that going? ?.

5.) 16 Jan 2022 23:18:07
Was the same for Digne wasn’t it. Short and sharp. The whole place stinks which is why I can see Bills Pov in wanting Martinez.

Regardless of how it ended you can’t deny the man oozed class and charisma.

6.) 16 Jan 2022 23:50:11
Yes. Thanks Rafa for making us worse in your short (thankfully) tenure with us.

7.) 17 Jan 2022 07:16:15
I’m not saying he should have been thanked!

The point I’m making is that regardless of the circumstances an appointment ends, there’s usually a statement from the clubs with a load of guff as to their efforts blah blah blah. In this case, it was short and curt and I think that’s very yelling as to the acrimony at the club.

8.) 17 Jan 2022 07:45:20
The digne thing is another example of how badly the club is run isn't it?! I know we have different views on just how good digne is, but that aside he's essentially gone after a disagreement with a manager who the board must have known was only one loss away from the sack!



16 Jan 2022 19:38:57
And to add to my previous post, no manager in the world with be able to defend unless a quality centre half and a defensive midfielder are brought in.


1.) 16 Jan 2022 19:50:00
Mina and Allan?

2.) 16 Jan 2022 21:23:37
Well we had 12 clean sheets last season with Carlo pretty sure it was with the same players?



15 Jan 2022 17:05:17
Pressed send to soon then…….


Michael Keane should never play for Everton again.
Rondon should never play for Everton again.
Mykolenko clearly isn’t the finished article and although he looks good in some respects, he’s not a “right now” player.
Benitez should be relieved of his duties immediately.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 17:10:34

Ferguson would work well with a director of football then would you think Ed?

Lampard wouldn’t be my choice as I don’t think he did enough at Chelsea to warrant the (massive) job at Everton. I think he’d be welcomed though if he was the choice of the board. I think he was always given a lot of respect from the terraces when he played against us because he was such a good player - and always scored against us!


{Ed002's Note - The problem is the structure - get a decent Director of Football and then sort it out. Else we have this discussion in a year or so}{

That Patterson is a good player and I’d be happy to see him sign for us. Success with any purchase is never guaranteed obviously, but they are the type of player I think we should be buying.

From what I saw, he set us up as a 3-4-3 when we had the ball and then a 5-4-1 when we didn’t, with gray and Gordon dropping deeper into midfield. I might be wrong there, just what I saw.

Yes we did win, and there are positives to take from the match - 3 really good goals, Gordon looking better each game he plays and what a brilliant player Gray is. Mykolenko definitely has something about him, just seems like a rough diamond at the moment. Down side of yesterday - we seemed poor defensively again. Is it personnel or tactics? I can’t help but feel that taking Gordon off changed the game a bit and allowed them to score.

I wanted Rafa and yes, I had seen enough over the last few weeks to want him gone, but he ain’t going anywhere fast and while he’s yet to win me over with one win, I think we have to trust him. Maybe it’s just what we need - a manager who will not bow down to the big time Charlie’s in the team and those who think they’re better than others? Maybe that’s what has been wrong all along, player power?

It was a bit of a hypothetical statement really DFS. You’d hope to demand fees on that region for those players though surely?
