Apparently denayer from city wants to move on with otamendi joining.
Would take him in a heartbeat. Young and was arguably a better performer then van dijk last season for Celtic and everyone on here seems desperate for us to get him!
Guessing he wouldn't be too expensive either which would suit bill and the board down to the ground!

Owen Coyle on talksport about 10. 30 saying Kone expected to leave this week and EFC is his preference. Looks like a done deal. Good player but doesn't help with the average squad age! let's hope it's a decent price


1.) Good player?. please debate.

As for price, that will be a minimum of 5 million.

2.) Why is he not a good player? quick, strong & more importantly SCORES goals. what is the point in having a low average age? surely its about ability and not age

3.) So what if he is 29, if he can bang in goals for 2-3 seasons, better than having neville on the books and doing f**k all

4.) I hate fans who are so concerned about age, he's 29 not 50, you can't just bye a 18 year old no good for next season

5.) Point is he's 29 and and DOESN'T bang in goals.6mil off everton. Whelan has done well.

6.) The fans who say "I hate fans who are so concerned about age" are completely missing the point, normally we would not be bothered about signing a couple older players, but it's the fact that we have about the 2nd oldest squad in the Premier League, and we don't want to add to that and become the oldest squad! A list of the players who are over 27 (including Alcaraz and Kone if they sign)

Mucha, Howard, Jagielka, Baines, Distin, Hibbert, Alcaraz, Osman, Pienaar, Hitzlsperger, Jelavic & Kone

We should be aiming to get younger players, and fans who "hate fans who are so concerned about age" seem to think this means 17/18 year olds. Well it doesn't, it means younger than the likes of Kone & Alcaraz.

7.) I thought mucha and 'der hammer' had been released?

Well I think that's us done. Just cannot see how we stay up. Against a terrible Liverpool we were completely outfought and not one player came out of that game with any credit whatsoever. The players are so poor and wouldn't be surprised if we got relegated from the championship as well when we go down. They are so slow with no one having the ability to pass a ball 10 yards it's embarrassing never seen a more sorry bunch in my life. If that had been the Liverpool of a few years back they would have scored 10.


1.) 13 Feb 2023 22:16:48
You're not kidding. The team that played against Arsenal never showed up! We will never score a goal from open play either. Two big games coming up next. If we don't win against Leeds and Villa we are doomed.

2.) 13 Feb 2023 22:20:19
Proves the Arsenal game was just a new manager bounce. Players genuinely couldn’t care less if we go down, will be good for a few of them who want to leave anyway.

The most embarrassing performance I’ve seen at Anfield. Worse than any under Martinez, worse than the FA Cup loss against their under 16s. Awful awful awful.

3.) 13 Feb 2023 22:26:35
I think saying they were terrible is completely wrong. Just Sod’s Law they picked tonight to play with the intensity and cutting edge they have done the last few years.

Don’t get me wrong, we were the polar opposite of how we looked against Arsenal. Last weekend it felt like we won every second ball and created really good chances from open play. From the first minute Liverpool went at us and we looked terrified tonight.

Saying that we’ve got three points out of two games I thought we’d struggle to get one from. The most important games were always the next three or four after these two, but we can’t afford to play like we did tonight.

4.) 13 Feb 2023 23:09:04
Agree WindsorBlue. I'd go further. Don't think we were polar opposite of Arsenal game. Not as good definitely but still better than before Dyche came in.

Unfortunate hoe they scored the first. They were always going to be up for the game. People would of been happy with 2 points from the 2 games. We got 3. Not bad if ya ask me.

Thought Tar's passing was really bad at times and Simms could of done a lot more running. Even though I thought more long balls to him would of been better. Never looked threatening trying to play it up the field.

Still well improved from 2 weeks ago. Think we'll pick up points over the next few games.

5.) 13 Feb 2023 23:14:29
Wind it in fellas, this is an adults forum. They should smash us every week on paper. Tarks’ header goes in and it’s a different game.

6.) 13 Feb 2023 23:22:02
Typical Everton. Get your hopes up last week, pull your pants down and finger you this week. I honestly don’t see us staying up, even after the win last week! So many weaknesses in our team.



13 Aug 2022 23:17:41
I'm sorry but if frank loses to forest he has to go before it's too late. He can't organise a defence and hasn't improved the team at all since taking over. I like the guy but let's be real, us fans got us over the line last season and frank and his backroom haven't improved us one bit.
I know it's practically impossible but pochettino is available so I would do anything to bring him in. I know everyone will say no chance but who thought Carlo would come before he signed? If we don't move whilst he is available we will never get someone of his quality and he improves players and plays the football we all want to see whilst not needing to invest heavily (PSG aside but that was out of his control anyway)


1.) 14 Aug 2022 08:47:47
This is an awful post, you should be sorry. ‘Frank and his back room staff haven’t proved us one bit’? Well that’s bs.
Wanting Pochettino also means you’re on a cloud somewhere. Two difficult opening fixtures and there’s obvious signs of improvement. Before these two games I personally would have give us 0 points out of them, 1 if we were lucky and we did come close in both games. I’d like to see how we do as a team in the fixtures where we are expected to pick up some points rather than rip it all up and start again …. AGAIN.

2.) 14 Aug 2022 08:52:35
You having a laff? Defensively been so much better than last season, especially set. pieces.

Midfield been a lot. better too and with onana, who's going to be a star, we should be fine.

We do need to add a striker or two and we will be comfortably mid table.

Only 2 games gone, another 36 to go. Stop worrying.

{Ed025's Note - I am firmly in your camp Geoff..

3.) 14 Aug 2022 10:42:12
Agree I'm firmly behind lampard. Don't get the mcneil signing but I think he has improved us and we will be ok this season. Fairly optimistic.

4.) 14 Aug 2022 11:16:40
After 2 games you can’t say we’re defensively worse off, we conceded 2 good goals yesterday, last season it would have been an own goal and a Holgate clearance straight onto Keane’s backside and into the goal. It was a comedy of errors last season. We look more organised and solid, they just need to gel more. Coady, Tarkowski and Holgate have literally played 1 game together. I see us mid to lower mid table this season.

5.) 14 Aug 2022 15:06:03
Let's have a look after 8 games and then take a balanced approach.



05 Aug 2022 14:05:41
Can any of the Ed's tell me what onana is like? Sounds very similar to doucoure but with very limited first team experience feels like an awful lot of money tconsidering our financial position.

He couldn't have anyone better than Gana and frank to learn off but the deal sounds like far too much for me.

Hoping for once we have a gem and are not being fleeced like normal!


{Ed077's Note - sorry can't help much mate. But him "choosing" Everton over WHU is a good start for you guys.

1.) 05 Aug 2022 17:41:00
I've never seen the lad play in all honesty but he seems to have a lot of people within the game bigging him up. One report says that he had some big European teams after him but he wants to play under Lampard and form a partnership with IGG. Whether we can believe that is another thing! As ed077 days, the lad has chosen to sign for us, that's a good start.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 19:56:20
Heard he wants to play alongside Tom Davies! Was a story from the Daily Sport mind.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 20:59:17
You would think a Doucoure/ Davies partnership would take but no luck.

4.) 05 Aug 2022 23:08:22
RIchris - I wouldn't say he is like Doucoure mate. He is a bit of a throwback midfielder for me. Comfortable sitting as a 6 but i think with Gana brought in and a little bit older, i think he should play the 8.

It seems a bit of a waste of his physical and athletic capabilities to just have him sat. We should utilise him as a box to box. He is a great tackler. He is strong, shields the ball well. For a big fella he is quite fast too.

Technique in terms of striking the ball is clean and precise and has good feet.

Considering some of the deals that go on in todays market, 33 million is a great price for him. He turns 21 in a few days so has great scope to get better and who better than Frank to guide him.

I don't envisage us keeping hold of him for more than a season or 2 as he is that good and will get snapped up by the big teams.



13 Apr 2022 20:14:16
I hope this new wild card system for the CL isn't true. No point fighting the super league to then do this. Might as well scrap the league and let uefa choose who they want to partake and keep the 'big' clubs happy. Or let them just have a super league and bugger off.

I wouldn't mind but go back 30 years and only utd, arsenal and them next door would actually be included from these so called big clubs. Everything is cyclical hence why we love football. Imagine if the premier league scrapped relegation and went down the US route. Would be great for the big clubs in the league who aren't too 6 but completely against the spirit of the sport.

I am at the point where I am sick of football and clubs trying to shut up shop so there is no competition. If that's what you want do it properly like in America and let the worst teams get the best young players to balance out the competition but they won't do that will they?


1.) 14 Apr 2022 06:33:56
$ £ € first then ? of ⚽ = ?.

2.) 14 Apr 2022 07:23:19
I actually preferred it when just the champions of their respective league went into the European Cup. Now, when a team comes 3rd can win the champions league, when they're not even champions of their own league, it isn't a champions league it's just another, bigger European cup!

3.) 14 Apr 2022 08:05:41
The Cup winners Cup was in my very honest opinion, the noblest Cup comp. of them all, the knockout footy special-ists of Europe battling it out to find out which of them were really the 'best'. Where the the European Cup was always about the teams with the most league stamina as well as skill of course and then thrown into a gladiatorial cup comp. which meant that if they were not very good at knockout footy they fell by the wayside.
The CL is a leveller in that respect however greed has distorted it to what will be a grotesque state of affairs.



07 Mar 2022 21:28:47
Well I genuinely think we are going down. No way there are 3 teams worse than us. Carragher was being polite saying our defence is a championship defence as not even that good.
Coleman has been a great servant but is so slow now and is constantly getting caught out. Keane might be one of the worst centre backs the premier league has ever seen. The less said about holgate the better and consideypickford is England number 1, you could spend £5m and get a goalie who was as good if not better.
I feel for lampard no idea why he took the role the club is a joke. Even the 2 full backs we signed clearly aren't good enough as can't get in this team!


1.) 07 Mar 2022 21:42:28
If it wasn't for pickford, thisd be 8 or 9 by now.

2.) 07 Mar 2022 22:20:38
If it wasn't for Pickford a fragile team with no confidence wouldn't have conceded a quickfire second.

Only Everton can build a new stadium and not end up owning it! What is the point then as we get none of the financial benefits might as well stay in the old lady and let the new stadium owners do what they want with it as the rent will be another cost we don’t need when we already own a stadium with no cost rental cost associated! Least then we get to keep all Matchday income!

Does everyone realise he is out only goal scorer. Who cares how old he is? Does more than onana when he’s having a bad day and onana plays the best he ever has! Onana should go for me as on the same if not bigger wages and will bring in a bigger fee. Can’t be that hard to find another midfielder who get no goals or assists and barely break up play, let just hope when we find him we don’t waste another £30m!

Ed how does a takeover help? I have no idea regarding FFP, but though our issue is that we have massively overspent and our outgoings are much higher than our incomings?
Am I right in saying that new owners cannot directly invest to help reduce FFP strain? So where does the benefit come from new owners?
Apologies if you have already explained this but had a search and couldn’t find anything. Appreciate it may be a little too complex to explain quickly on here!


{Ed002's Note - There is no point in my trying to explain the FFP but at the moment Everton cannot pay the wages of the players and are borrowing the money each month. The issue the club has is the turnover to wage ratio which I have explained before.}

Let’s be honest, the prem is a closed shop anyway geared towards the so called top 6. That’s why they have FFP, to ensure no one else can break the monopoly so a super league doesn’t change that, just gives all other European teams an equal footing with the top 6 in the prem.

The backup can be anyone. Sheff utd signed Cameron archer for half the price who has scored 3 prem goals and has bags of potential. We will see how he turns out but I’m with fancy the last is pants and his scoring record at udinese proves it. Typical of our scouts to think £30m on 10 goals in a season in one of the slowest leagues in Europe makes him a good fit for the prem!
