Is interest in Van De Beek just paper talk and if not what chances?


{Ed002's Note - Donny van de Beek (CM) Everton may still provide an option - but his agent is also looking for other options and he has been offered through a third party to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Dortmund, Juventus and Wolves but the Spanish sides have not asked for more information. Manchester United will now let him leave in the summer but the player wants out in January if possible. Manchester United may well block that and again hold another player hostage with his value likely to have halved from what they paid for him. Atletico might provide a loan to buy option. Borussia Dortmund may be the most attractive option.}

Why are we spending £20 million on a left back when we're have nkonku and it's a tight back we need? Even if digne goes sounds like this guy isn't ready yet for premiere league!


{Ed0666's Note - Because your Everton

1.) 18 Dec 2021 11:29:28
My word! Let's write off a young left back who will reduce the average age of the squad and save us a lot on wages, helping ffp before he has kicked a ball.
Let's ask Liverpool for James Milner, give him a huge fat last pay day and have that will solve all our problems.

{Ed0666's Note - Like Millie would play for Everton ?

2.) 18 Dec 2021 11:42:20
I presume it's because good right-backs that we can afford are not available at the moment and if Digne is off and we have identified a good replacement who is available and we can afford him then it makes sense. Presumably the search for a right-back will continue, I just hope that we don't make another panic decision. We need the right players not another flop.

3.) 18 Dec 2021 11:43:40
Sorry just the 1st 30+ player who can play at left back that came to mind??.

4.) 18 Dec 2021 13:12:32
We have eyes on a right back from France.

5.) 18 Dec 2021 13:21:00
Think the only right back the club will find is the one right back where they started from.

{Ed0666's Note - good one Brian ?

6.) 18 Dec 2021 14:50:01
Tony Hibbert plays in France?.

7.) 18 Dec 2021 13:50:21
So the apparent 20 mill deal for this LB is dependant on a deal to sell Digne I assume.

8.) 18 Dec 2021 16:05:14
Would think so dfs otherwise what’s the point? As many have said it’s a right back we need, or maybe Godfrey can play there as well.

9.) 18 Dec 2021 19:09:43
Yea he can Bob ?. I know he's been better at left back than digne when he's played there but he's actually right footed, so it would seem logical that he can also do a good job at right back. I suspect if there isn't a right back that the manager would like to sign available at a price we can afford, then he will consider Godfrey as a viable option for right back for the second half of the season.

10.) 18 Dec 2021 21:13:36
Bluemike - highly unlikely to make a panic decision over a right back as we’ve been looking for one for 3 years! Can’t see them panicking now ?.

11.) 18 Dec 2021 23:45:19
This is Everton mate, we can panic buy anytime.



26 Feb 2021 18:46:33
Any insight Eds on if we have a realistic chance of signing Max Aaron's? Or is he destined elsewhere?
Read Norwich want 30/ 35 million. Any possibility of Norwich accepting 25 + Kenny?


{Ed002's Note - Max Aarons (RB) Everton remain very keen after Bayern Munich decided against a move as the cost is seen as too high and Roma has opted for another - Manchester United want him as cover only and that will likely price him out of a move at something like £30M. I don't see Jonjonjoe Kenny moving to Norwich.}

1.) 27 Feb 2021 07:19:15
Thanks Ed.

Despite a total pile of sh1t our fans were incredible again. instead of a holiday abroad SD should've sent the players into Liverpool for a week to feel our passion. Sadly, I don't think it'll be rewarded and we will go down regardless of any more point deductions, because quite simple not a single win this year! WTF and manager still in post.


1.) 03 Apr 2024 08:20:14
Over some 40 odd years every time I returned to UK, invariably it was to London and its' region. I got to watch Everton many times at 'my' home games. Our away fans have always been tremendous and even now with the destruction wrought with Moshri, advisors and the (hrmmmmmmm) real owner, these fans are unbelievable.



02 Apr 2024 20:56:11
Honestly don't know how anyone can back SD after those subs tonight. Can't believe Young and Godfrey started never mind not subbed after their performances. Onana was our best performer (which isn't saying much) first half.


1.) 03 Apr 2024 11:34:59
Personally I thought onana was very poor. Garner and gomes made the difference.



06 Feb 2024 22:35:30
Season not over and so many uncertainties to be decided. But I'm hoping / thinking / planning for another season in PL as I'm sure all supporters / club are.

Biggest decision to me is Branthwaite. He is our future, but do we stick or twist? Plus realistically, what does player want?

My opinion is go all to keep the (imo) future England captain and WC winner, think we will get silly bids in summer and get that with ffp and r financial situation we have to balance books but I would sell / release others to keep a gem who will only go up in value. I believe GB could be first potential billion future player/ defender.

Thoughts blues?


1.) 06 Feb 2024 23:02:31
He will be sold.

2.) 07 Feb 2024 03:53:43
If the player wants to leave then it's very difficult to stop him. He is genuinely world class and as such we must get maximum transfer value.

3.) 07 Feb 2024 05:53:21
Sadly the club won’t have a choice and aren’t in any position to bargain. I reckon any offer of£40m+ and he will be gone.

{Ed025's Note - i think it will be a lot more than that Swinners, but yeah i think he will be sold in the summer unfortunately mate..

4.) 07 Feb 2024 09:15:18
If the money is right and the player wants to leave, then so be it. There are very few Seamus Coleman’s anymore. Now it’s all about the money.

5.) 07 Feb 2024 10:10:46
Not the old club loyalty card again? When are you from? The 1920s? Ooh he kissed the badge he must be one of us. If the club could offer the aligned ambition of the best players to pass through then we'd be in a much better position to expect to keep them for the peak years. Assets get sold and if this financial crisis was 10 years ago then have no doubt that Baines and Coleman would have been sold to Man UTD and on MOTD you'd have seen them kissing the new badge. This has always been a football fan ideology that I've never understood and find very weird.

6.) 07 Feb 2024 11:45:47
It's a fair assessment FBS but I'd through Le Tiasier in the mix. Unfortunately different times with the amount of money in the game.
The main issue that all this revolves around, is if we stay in the league. If we do get relegated and I suppose if we stay in the league, we have to keep hold of him until after the Euros, as he'll definitely go and we can get more for him. This will be the same for Onana and will get us a lot in order to clear some of the debt and allow us to invest.
Really sad times for our great club and watching Richarlison score on Saturday just shows me what could have been. This team and Richie would be nowhere near the bottom with his goals.

7.) 07 Feb 2024 12:28:56
Honestly in my opinion if jarrad keeps playing the way he has has to be considered at 80 mil easily plays with both feet looks comfortable on ball good at duels i think be only matter of time before united city and liverpool be looking at him do i want him to go absolutely not but with the current situation and the ffp if bid does go in think it will be accepted but woudnt accept anything less than 80 mil just my view like.

{Ed002's Note - It is simply a random number.}

8.) 07 Feb 2024 13:25:08
I’m not sure on the number but it wouldn’t surprise me if he became the PL most expensive player from a transfer value point of view. The boy has ability and is young.

We have him on a longish contract which helps but our need to trade players is great at this time.

If we have him next season then I’ll be very surprised.

9.) 07 Feb 2024 15:12:02
It’s a simple case of supply and demand. There’ll be some big clubs that are happy to pay top dollar for someone like JB and that competition will drive the cost up. It will be a shame to se him go, but we are not in the position to hold on to potentially world class players. Our hope should be that the scouting team have identified the next JB.

{Ed002's Note - They have identified some options:
Harry Souttar (CB) Identified by Everton as a potential Branthwaite replacement in the summer - but it will depend on promotion/relegation, but he will be available as he is no more than a fringe player at Leicester. Seems an odd pick for Everton. May have an option in the Middle East.
Jake O'Brien (CB) Having a very good seasson in France so far and it may lead to an offer from Everton as a Jarrad Branthwaite replacement in the summer. They will continue to send scouts but he is not Home Grown which may be a concern..
Nico Elvedi (CB) Prior interest of Roma, Wolves, Nice and West Ham has gone. An option for Everton but the player may not be keen.
Ronnie Edwards (CB) Watched by a number of PL clubs with Crystal Palace and West Ham stepping back. Everton may look to an early offer for the summer but Peterborough may ask a decent fee for him that is beyond Everton without sales.}

10.) 07 Feb 2024 15:42:26
Cheers Ed, hopefully the sale of a few others and some contracts ending will improve our situation moving forward.

{Ed002's Note - Many will be departing in the summer for one reason or another.}

11.) 07 Feb 2024 16:29:33
Let’s hope those departures you speak of Ed are not because we’ve been relegated ?.

{Ed002's Note - I hope not. There are eight out of contract, including two end of loans after the Danjuma mess, plus I would think several sales, perhaps three first team sales and fringe sales.}

12.) 07 Feb 2024 18:54:44
3878 One of my pals was at Southampton Institute in the early 1990s and locally in the night life, Le Tissier was well known. I believe he was a nightclub part owner and partner in several bars and was known as Le Pissier. I'm sure if I published a few stories I've been told, they'd be deleted. The general local thought on his "loyalty" was that he was very happy to be a big fish in a small pond. He liked the entire city "god like" adulation without anyone to rival him. His talent would have made him a success anywhere on the pitch but he famously didn't like to train and I'm not sure if a Alex Ferguson would have tolerated his general attitude and he was potentially bright enough to figure out he was better off at home. He was a rare exception.

13.) 07 Feb 2024 21:05:35
Steve Bull of Wolves also worth a mention, prolific in his day and stayed with the club even after relegation from the top flight.

Tho do agree loyalty within football is scarce and sadly money driven.

14.) 08 Feb 2024 16:55:18
What’s it matter, even supporters move from team to team now .

2.) 18 Dec 2023 13:19:47
Lol, Liverpool fan in peace, good one that.

Fair play lads and credit to Dyche, he has every single member of your team fighting and working his socks off for the whole game - you'd far too many passengers playing a while ago and it's good to see the impact he has made.

I'd a chat with Ed25 over on the Liverpool page and said whilst the 10 point deduction was ridiculously harsh, if it was going to happen in any season, you would pick this one as they are just some teams in it that you'd still be confident finishing above - amazing though that without that deduction you would be like 8th or 9th and challenging for Europe - honestly, I'd love to go back to days whereby we were the two top teams in the league (obviously you lot 2nd like lol) and you never know, could well happen again.

That being said, don't get me wrong, not so long ago we could have won a quadruple and saw you relegated in the same year - I'd have loved that lol and my Toffee Bro in Law would never have lived it down!

But I still remember the derbies where blues and reds sat together and whilst I acknowledge a strong rivalry the deduction was plain nuts lads - it will be interesting to see though what happens other clubs though re FFP breaches in the future.

Honestly, hard to hear from a red I know, but good luck for the rest of the season lads you are playing some decent stuff at the moment and genuinely will be interesting to see just how far up the table you can go in spite of that deduction ???.

3.) 18 Dec 2023 15:50:42
Its a phenomenal derby relationship on Merseyside Bill I dare say unique, the City and Utd one is a whole different ball game, same with Villa and BCFC and the Old firm thing is well . . .

{Ed025's Note - i dont know about that these days GD, it certainly used to be that way mate but there is an element of toxicity nowadays..which is a shame..

4.) 18 Dec 2023 16:16:15
I had some experiences in London where I lived and worked at one time, there were a lot of local based reds fans with a different perspective to the natives as it were.
Some were great guys and knew their footy, but there were others that got right up your nose so to speak .

5.) 19 Dec 2023 15:34:38
Kids are tribal ED.

{Ed025's Note - i was thinking more..pricks 5050 mate.. :)



26 Nov 2023 19:13:16
Think we need to see things in context. We played like we have most if season and players gave their all. Went behind to worldie then failed to take our chances before half time.
Penalty was soft but correct decision once foot poked out but thought ref was poor throughout.
Utd deserved today but thought game was decided on a couple of decisions and our inability to take chances (same old. same old) but really believe we will be fine!
However, 10 points will mean it will be tight!


1.) 26 Nov 2023 20:13:21
Well ignoring all of the passion, ten point deduction, the problem with Refs and luck etc. and the fact that the players are trying their best, we have now got 5 points from an available 24 at home which is just not good enough and would normally make us relegation candidates. Our away form on the contrary has been excellent. To survive this year it is pretty obvious where we need to improve.

2.) 26 Nov 2023 23:14:54
Luckily we have dramatically improved away because we were terrible both home and away. Obviously we'd all love a home win and a winning streak to remind teams that Goodison is a nightmare host. On a great day we'd have been 5-1 up at half time. They were begging for a good seeing to but we didn't smash em when they were on a plate. 2nd half was a little lackluster by comparison to that 30mins in 1st half yet we still could have got a couple and then we got punished as per our luck. Ref was terrible but they all are in all games so no conspiracy theories apply. We will be fine with a month to go. I'd like to think we will get a home win soon. UTD were and are in good form so not that unexpected. Scoreline was harsh though.

3.) 27 Nov 2023 07:32:34
Pretty much exactly as I see it FBS.

4.) 27 Nov 2023 09:21:31
That's not how I see it. We try and play the same way at home as we do away. We sit back and try to hit teams on the break. It works away from home but not when were playing at home.
The first ten minutes of yesterday we sat back and allowed them to do whatever they wanted, I mean at times their keeper just stood there with the ball at his feet with zero pressure.
Once we started pressing them the game changed and we were able to unsettle them. Then for some reason in the second half we came out and sat off them again.
Utd are not a good side, but they do have enough good players who given time on the ball can punish you. Second half we basically handed them the game.

5.) 27 Nov 2023 10:34:07
Walking home from the game yesterday having the usual debate with my mate as to where we went wrong. Yes they scored a worldy early on, but even that could have been avoided with tighter marking.
I agree with Brass, when we pressed them they panicked and we were on them. At half time the feeling was that we could still win this. However, the team for some reason decided to sit deep and allow them possession again. Yes the crowd were vocal, but they were pleading with the players to push forward and get in their faces.
There were a few out there who simply underperformed, and substitution should and could have been made earlier.
Utd had a young lad in midfield who basically ran the game for them, and our midfielders got no where near his level of commitment. I would have liked to see young Dobbin given a run, especially as both our wide players were having poor games.
Once the pen went in it was game over, and all the backing in the world from the fans wasn’t going to make any difference. Manager has to change his tactics when playing at home, we need two strikers on the pitch. We need to be pressing teams the full ninety minutes and not allow them to dictate the rhythm of the game.
Felt yesterday we played the badge and not the team.

6.) 27 Nov 2023 16:09:36
The frustrations are understandable. There doesn’t appear to be a plan B in terms of a formation change, under any circumstances. Not many teams in World football can press with that energy for 90 minutes. It’s difficult to say that we weren’t positive with the number of chances we created.

{Ed025's Note - things went against us JB, we conceded a worldie of a goal very early ans were chasing the game from that point, i believe if we had converted one of the many chances we had at that stage it would have been a completely different outcome mate, as it was we conceded a very soft penalty and there was no way back after that..

7.) 27 Nov 2023 16:36:38
Things always seem against us Ed. It's not just bad luck any more.

McNeil jogged back and left myko defending against 2 utd players for the cross for the first goal. I've not got the stats but we seem to concede from crosses from our left very often. McNeil is supposed to be good defensively but I think he looks bone idle. Danjuma must be Maupay level to not get a game over him.

Stupid foul for the pen, but young has done it before, he can't help giving fouls away. I know a lot are saying it's a soft pen but I think it was a clear trip in the box and even though it was soft it was an obvious pen.

Then the 3rd we were just chasing the game and they finished well.

I don't think we were unlucky in any of them. The misses again weren't unlucky, in all honesty I've come to expect them. I think we all just think we are a much better team than we are.

I don't get why we can do it away (sometimes) but not at home.

I think McNeil and Harrison are our biggest problem. Both need to score far more often than they do. Harrison at least looks busy but McNeil couldn't be further from the player he was under dyche last year, he looks like he doesn't want to be here, never puts the effort in.

{Ed025's Note - i think the pressure after the 10 point ban which we hoped would work for us actually hampered us Chris, we were chasing too hard and snatched at our chances mate, this game was not the be all and end all and will not define our season so im just writing this one off, we will improve and things will settle down sooner rather than later and we will be fine..

8.) 27 Nov 2023 21:14:18
Thought that myself, when they didn't think about it they actually pressured but appeared to fold in front of goal. Wasn't at the game so hard to judge atmosphere but it looked on TV as Ed described. I must admit, I did think the deduction would have that nervous effect. 5 points so currently it is in Lutons hands. We certainly cannot afford to slip.

9.) 27 Nov 2023 21:18:03
I hope so ed. Just hope we continue doing the business away from home. I just can't work out why we miss so many chances at home.

{Ed025's Note - confidence and trying too hard Chris..

10.) 27 Nov 2023 21:45:47
As we’d picked up points, the squad had seemed more relaxed, more confident, and that’s not the case now.
The penalty: same thing happened in the Burnley game, not overturned, so again, we’re given the s***y end of the stick. McNeil and Harrison did have off days, but overall they’ve been decent this season.
I don’t think the performance was as bad as others are saying.

11.) 27 Nov 2023 21:55:39
Put two strikers on the pitch and the still need feeding, Beto can do the knockdowns from what I have seen.

Spot on! They r mediocre players at a mediocre club ran less than mediocre so r just taking their millions and going through motions!
We all give a Sh1T if we go down as we r loyal for life! These guys kiss shirt one minute then move on when better offer comes along ( ie Onana will ) but does a loss spoil their week like it does ours I doubt it!
Apart from Seamus (maybe Beto who I feel cares but knows he’s giving his all but isn’t quite good enough for PL and us) can u name another player blues who really goes care?
