Ed’s, is there any truth in the story that Marcos Rojo’s move to Everton has been resurrected?


{Ed002's Note - I am aware of discussions with another side but am not aware of any approach by Everton.}

1.) 30 Dec 2019 17:17:12
Thanks Ed.



05 Oct 2019 19:44:22
I have seen enough now. Absolute dearth of quality in the final third, awful in midfield and clueless in defence at set pieces. All down to the management.

Buck stops with Silva and Brands and I’ve seen enough. Not one to normally jump on the manager out shouts, but he’s done for me now.


1.) 05 Oct 2019 21:50:34
Me too, he and the team have to improve significantly before I will have any confidence that he is the right manager. Ed 002 did warn us and I have more confidence in him than any of the "advisors" Moshiri is listening too.



02 Aug 2019 12:48:04
Alan Myers saying that Gbamin (spelling? ) is having a medical now at Everton.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 13:51:13
It's also being reported that he's having medical by Liverpool echo and is expected to get concluded in 24 hours. Dose anyone know any news on moise Keane deal.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 22:36:29
They’ve just done a video to reveal him.



23 Jul 2019 22:51:06
Sky reporting that West Brom want Holgate back in loan, but Everton unwilling to let him go. If that’s true, he seems to be in Marcos plans for this season. I wonder as a right back or at centre half?


1.) 24 Jul 2019 00:12:05
hopefully as a right back, back up.

2.) 24 Jul 2019 09:46:44
I imagine it will be back up to both CB and RB. I hope he gets some game time.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 10:44:14
He is a centre back without doubt, wasted as a full back.

4.) 24 Jul 2019 14:11:59
Silva has said repeatedly that he wants to buy a RB and CB so expect both.



22 Jan 2019 08:52:01
L’Equipe reporting that PSG have made on opening bid of €25m for Gueye.


1.) 22 Jan 2019 10:10:54
If they want to buy him and the price is right who am I to argue. But I have one question. He's a good player, but is he really good enough right now for PSG? I have my doubts.

2.) 22 Jan 2019 11:31:58
Works hard but can’t pass a ball, and at 29 maybe the time is right to let him go. To be fair if we got anywhere near 30m for him then that’s good business.

3.) 22 Jan 2019 12:12:38
If he goes and we get good money who cares if he cannot get into PSG first team.

4.) 22 Jan 2019 12:32:29
It who do we replace him with?

{Ed025's Note - macca?..

5.) 22 Jan 2019 12:50:41
dead on ed, ready made replacement in mccarthy and the beni waiting in the wings aswell.

{Ed025's Note - i think they could do a job johny..

6.) 22 Jan 2019 13:06:46
beniis like for like but can pass, if gana goes i would rather play beni till summer and if he's not good enough u sign ganas replacement then.

7.) 22 Jan 2019 14:08:08
I believe either of those two could do just as good a job. And as you say Johny if there not deemed good enough then get a replacement in the summer.

8.) 22 Jan 2019 14:45:23
this season should be used to find out who is good enough then a cull come summer.

9.) 22 Jan 2019 15:47:07
agreed been sad no to see beni even get a look in this year, think he's a real prospect.

10.) 22 Jan 2019 16:02:11
Would love to see Benni have a go.

11.) 22 Jan 2019 21:21:33
Agree. Get 27/ 28 mill for him and let him go.
Beni and Jimmy can tide us over.

12.) 23 Jan 2019 00:20:31
We have McCarthy, Benni, Davies, even Schnids who can cover his place, when you have Schnids and Gaye alongside each other, the ball will go sideways, be interesting to see how Schnids has played without Gaye alongside him.

If we use the money on a Michy Bats coming in, I think it will be good business. Enough cover in midfield, desperately shortin attack.

On a final note, I would put Hornby on the bench for the cup game.

Ed, on the subject of wondering how certain players manage to get a game, and I think I’ve asked this question before - is it at all possible that there are ‘minimum appearance’ clauses in contracts?


{Ed002's Note - No but it is possible for players of a certain age (28) to force there unilateral termination of a contract within a couple of weeks of the end of a season if he has not played in 10% of games - under such so called "just cause" the club may be entitled to compensation. It doesn't happen.}

1.) 02 Feb 2020 12:01:02
Interesting. Thanks Ed.

2.) 02 Feb 2020 17:09:56
Just a thought Ed. Has a back up keeper ever done this?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I recall, clubs are generally pretty good about players who want to leave.}

3.) 02 Feb 2020 21:41:15
Thanks Ed and another question about FFP if you don't mind.
If a club gets fined.
A. Does it then reset the 3 year rolling FFP for the club?
B. Would a fine be included in the clubs accounts and therefore FFP for that year?

{Ed002's Note - (a) No. (b) The fine is a deductable expense for the club.}



21 Jan 2020 23:08:40
Anger doesn't even come close to describing my feelings right now. Newcastle deserved nothing from that game. Nothing. Jordan Pickford was at fault for both goals - flapped at the cross for the first and was behind the line for the second. schoolboy stuff.




08 Jan 2020 23:06:44
People saying that they have never seen a worse squad than this - behave! Some folk have small memories. As recent as t6he squad Moyes inherited from Smith - Pembridge, Gemmill, Stubbs, Alexandersson, Nyarko, Pistone, Simonsen. Time for a bit of perspective I think from some.


1.) 09 Jan 2020 06:06:48
Them players didn't cost £200m and weren't getting paid £100k a week though, the squad we have now would probably get rolled over by them even at there age now.

2.) 09 Jan 2020 07:52:51
Tell you what wouldn't mind stubs and pistone last week better than we had.

3.) 09 Jan 2020 09:48:31
Bluescouser - The were on an obscene amount of money back in the day and in the context of transfer fees, were an expensive group of players. Money has certainly ruined football to an extent, but it has also had a negative effect on supporters attitudes too.

Footballers have always been overpaid for the “job” they do and I doubt that will ever change!



04 Dec 2019 22:43:12
I’ve said this a few times tonight, and I’ll say it again - it is still mathematically possible for us to win the league!

Chins up lads, he will be gone soon and we will recover. When I was in the army, we had a morose, gallows sense of humour that got us through bad, bad times - we sang “always look on the bright side of life” in our darkest moments.


{Ed0666's Note - I think I’d rather be in the trenches at the moment if I were an Everton fan

1.) 04 Dec 2019 23:11:04
Good to see some optimism on here. I’d settle for 41 points to get us over the safety line than winning the league after recent performances.

2.) 04 Dec 2019 23:17:01
This lot have no idea 666, to be honest neither do you.

{Ed0666's Note - I concur mate. I really don’t have an idea but I would have got away with it if it weren’t for you pesky kids.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 23:31:57
Ed, I’ve been in the trenches mate and believe you me, being an Everton supporter is a doddle in comparison 😂.

{Ed0666's Note - touché Pierre



01 Dec 2019 19:40:42
It may have been a “better” performance today, but it was still nowhere near good enough and should not be a performance that keeps him in a job. Simply not good enough today or in the 13 games previous - that’s why we are 2 points off the relegation spots. TWO POINTS! Like it or not, we are in a relegation scrap and the club should be ashamed of themselves for letting things get this bad. He should have gone weeks ago and something done to arrest this slide.


1.) 01 Dec 2019 20:44:28
I didn’t even see a better performance today. Our defenders are continually caught out of position, the midfielders are non existent and the striker gets no service at all. How many times did Digne and Davies lose possession today? Digne is caught out of position many times every game I watch him. Keane is not a good centre half, Mina has his moments and Holgate is still learning. Sidibe was ok today but useless last week. I won’t comment on the midfielders because I think when Gomes, Gbamin and Delph are fit they’ll play.

{Ed025's Note - it was a miles better performance this week joe, we had intensity and fight and i dont know how you can compare it with last week mate (except for the outcome of course)..

2.) 01 Dec 2019 22:43:14
Also people banging on about our midfield. We basically have 1 fit midfielder and a partially fit Schneiderlin.

3.) 01 Dec 2019 21:20:24
Ed we were second best all over the pitch again. I’m sure Leicester had at least twice as much possession as us. Intensity and fight should be a given for professional footballers. Unfortunately intensity and fight doesn’t win games or trophies as we know for far too long. I know I’m probably being harsh on some players performances today but we got same result as last week and it’s a team game. So for me another poor performance and result to go with it.

{Ed025's Note - away to the second best team in the league was always going to be difficult joe, i actually thought we played well for most of it but i agree that its too little too late, i have to disagree that intensity and fight wont win you games though mate, burnley have been doing it for years..

4.) 01 Dec 2019 21:22:39
Ed25, decision making yet again. A team that relies on front foot with the pressure still on suddenly relieved IWOBI off Schneid the crab on. One example. Question: Are the ditherers still dithering tomoz.

{Ed025's Note - probably mate..

5.) 01 Dec 2019 21:31:30
I agree about the midfield being a less than makeshift one. You have to ask the question though - why are we suffering so many injuries in training?

6.) 02 Dec 2019 12:01:20
I watched the game again ed now I’m not as angry haha. You’re right there was more effort and intensity in our play but we were still second best for the majority of the game. I’m struggling to see how we can get out of this rut, we need 2 central midfielders and a striker to arrive or find form asap just to fight our way out the relegation scrap.

{Ed025's Note - things will get worse over the next few weeks im afraid joe, we will be i the bottom 3 by christmas i expect but im confident we will get ourselves out of the mire come the new year mate..

7.) 02 Dec 2019 15:59:28
That’s what is concerning me as I can’t see a way to stop the free fall. I do think we’ll avoid relegation but just not sure how. We always seem to find a bit of form to push up towards top half of table and hopefully we do it sooner rather than later. I also think Silva is here for awhile yet (provided we don’t get stuffed in next 2-3 games) . If he was getting sacked it would’ve happened after Norwich game. So we may just get behind him and the team.

If Baines leaves, surely we would have to replace him?

I’m not wanting to put a dampener on things and I hate to sound negative, but I’d be very surprised if this actually happens. I’d love it to and he is up there with the best managers in the world, but until I see him unveiled, I’m treating this one with caution.

VAR has been a bugbear for every single team. There isn't one side that has benefitted from it! This season has become just about that and the controversy it causes. We often heard how referees struggled because of the speed of the game now and that we had the benefit of video replays, which they didn't. Well now they do and it is worse than ever! It has only gone to prove that the majority of ref's are below par and get many decisions wrong.

Both of Fabian Deplh's card were dubious on Saturday imo. OK, you could argue the first was a bit reckless, but he got the ball, and the second was never a yellow. The Watford player should have been booked for simulation as you'd have thought he had been shot!

I meant that the system you are describing - building from the ground up - is evident at Liverpool. As we found out last Sunday!

It’s evident in bucket loads at LFC Ed.
