Probably get Zaha in January when he's had a grump for a few months and Palace are in the relegation zone. 😉.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 08:20:47
Haha, could do but think that ship has sailed now, was probably our only shot are signing him, we have Iwobi at RW now so probably won’t be looking at that position for a while again. Hopefully his grump lasts into tomorrow so he’s poor against us or doesn’t play at all. 👍🏻.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 08:38:45
yeah zaha ship has sailed now i think, will look for younger if they were to go back in for a winger and move iwobi more central.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 09:32:27
Let's be positive and believe Silva will have them playing well enough that we don't need him.
We have a good strong squad now.

Fitting Bernard, Iwobi, Calvert Lewin, Richarlison, Kean into top 3 is a challenge

Sigardson, Gomes, Gbamin, Delph, Davies, Scheiderlin into middle 3 tough

And there's others who will be fighting to show that they deserve a chance as well

What great problems for Silva to have.

{Ed025's Note - very much so mate..

4.) 09 Aug 2019 11:11:17
Iwobi is a LW (another one) not a RW.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 13:16:13
Can’t see getting zaha - if that Eason cards would not sign Iwobi - could see centre half in Jan - that’s all we need. think that’s the last time we will see 5-6 coming in. hopefully Gibson, Ellis, Hollgate take there chance.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 15:07:07
BCT, Iwobi can play either wing or behind the striker so not just a LW, this is why he was bought due to this versatility.

{Ed002's Note - he plays nearly all games in his natural position of LW. The club did not buy him because he is versatile.}

7.) 09 Aug 2019 15:40:12
The move does allow richarlison to still play rw and may allow Bernard to play cam. Iwobi plays am for Nigeria and i think he was used as lw for arsenal due to their lack of depth on the wing positions. Iwobi is a hopeful signing but i would have preferred to sign a natural rw as that position needed to be addressed. I do wonder that if KM or YB don't move on, that they will integrate them into the squad until atleast January.



30 Jul 2019 00:39:06
Everton bid for Zaha but the bid is rejected. Another supposed bid is fake.
Are Everton just saying to Zaha with the first bid, we are interested and if you want to leave we want you.
Everton then wait to see if the player kicks up a fuss to leave?


1.) 30 Jul 2019 08:50:39
Or could we have made the first bid and be back to other targets trying to get them done while the media is distracted with all this Zaha chatter 🤷🏻‍♂️.



13 Mar 2019 22:01:16
So it looks like we attempted to sign Doucore from Watford in January which would have enabled Gana to join PSG. Watford wanted too much for him though.

I'd have been happy with him as a replacement if we had lost Gana.

Silva seems to be keen on Schneiderlin, would the fans be willing to forgive him if he gets back to how he was in the first 6 months of buying him?


1.) 13 Mar 2019 22:51:32
We can't afford passengers. He would have to prove he could put a shift in when called upon and be a game changer when required.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 08:46:10
Looks like Gana could be off in the Summer, Doucore would be a good replacement.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 15:05:06
whats to forgive with schneiderlin? yes he played badly last year but didn't they all? he was a disgrace at times but if silva see's something in him then we should all be behind him to do well.

4.) 14 Mar 2019 15:10:21
I actually think Dacoure is a better player. Better passer and even though Gueye has an incredible engine on him I think dacoure has more purpose in his play. As a box to box player he can defend and attack in equal measure. I’d be well happy if we replaced Gueye with him.

5.) 16 Mar 2019 18:19:18
I like Davies in midfield. He just early gets played. I think if we sell gana the money could be used to strengthen other positions.



12 Mar 2019 13:20:30
Interesting that Brands has come out saying he won't be buying a mega bucks striker because he doesn't want to hinder the progress of Riky, DCL and Lookman.
Looks like he really is changing our transfer approach to a long term stratey of bringing youth through.

I have to say, DCL has massively improved this season. Not quite ready to lead the line every game but certainly getting better.


1.) 12 Mar 2019 17:34:14
We have a problem with to many high wages on the books and cannot do much till we sell them. Financial fair play rules etc.
I think we also need a goalkeeper first, you have to be able to defend, also we do not know who will be manager next season.
If it is Siva we will need championship players for the season after.

{Ed025's Note - i believe the names of david moyes and phillip cocu have been put forward by brands if moshiri decides on a plan B, i have to say im not happy about moyes..

2.) 12 Mar 2019 18:08:28
My understanding is that Brands was recruited because of his talent at identifying raw talent that would not cost an arm and a leg. He is hardly going to tell anyone about his targets is he?

3.) 12 Mar 2019 19:16:11
Optimistic of you Dc. your right about the wages though.

I think I remember Moshiri saying he was particularly looking for a young manager who can play attacking football. Moyes definitely doesn't fit that description. I wonder how many fans would accept Moyes coming back.

{Ed025's Note - certainly not me smit..

4.) 12 Mar 2019 20:06:29
Oh please not the Moyes debate again. He is soiled goods.

5.) 12 Mar 2019 21:46:52
I'm for giving Silva time but if the decision to sack and re hire happened in the summer, I'd go Cocu, who brands knows very well, or Fonseca. Moyes, not for me. backwards step appointing him and a big one at that. And don't give me the " he hasn't had the money to spend" because he did at man utd and got booted quickly there. Then Spain didn't work out for him did it.

6.) 13 Mar 2019 00:13:25
Marco Silva will be coaching EFC in Europe in the Fall of 2020. The negativity among our fanbase is toxic. Give the man his due chance.

7.) 13 Mar 2019 08:35:34
I’m sorry but don’t see how you can make statement like that - he has spent a lot of money and seen team slide down table. What gives you confidence in him. We concede too many - tactics not great - no history of success - sacked in every job in England.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 00:46:29
We've identified Silva for a reason and fought to get him. The players he and Brands have brought in have been among our best players this season. During the good moments, it seems we have the legitimate makings of a system. This year was always going to be a transition year and we shouldn't be so results-oriented in the short term. He should be given another summer transfer window to bring in more players who play his style of football and another season to build off the good moments and cut down on the poor ones. We can't keep switching from system to system and expect any consistency from the players or in the team's performance. Let's give the guy the team wanted a chance to do the things we brought him here to do.

9.) 16 Mar 2019 10:08:22
COYB that’s probably the best and most sensible post I have seen on here for a long time.
Yes there are faults with a young group of players and a massive transitional season.
We have shown in flashes what some of the players can achieve. Pickford will be a top keeper but is still young for a keeper and needs to mature.
Holgate will come back more experienced.
Kenny, DCL have had more games and looking more comfortable. I would like to see Davies and Lookman getting more game time and be ready for next season.
There will be a lot of the squad moving on in the summer transfer window.
I don’t think we need to sign a drastic amount of players, more the right players. A leader somewhere on the team and a more experienced proven goalscorer up front, maybe Gana to be replaced, Gomes and Zouma signed. Always said a right back, Kenny is steady but maybe Holgate could solve the problem as he is doing so well playing there for West Brom.



25 Feb 2019 16:52:44
Allardyce interested in the Leicester job. As if they haven't been through enough this season.


{Ed025's Note - love it smit..

1.) 25 Feb 2019 17:02:06
They would not be relegated under Sam that's certain.
He treated Everton the way they deserved, I am still ashamed of they attitude of my fellow supporters and Moshiri.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 17:25:11
We were never in any danger of going down and never needed Allardyce DC. It was just a bad decision that brought him here. I feel no shame whatsoever. He got what he deserved the thieving bar steward.

{Ed025's Note - im with you nick, a mercenary of the lowest order who took the job to feather his own and his pals nests, a scum bag of a man who i am ashamed to ever have been associated with our club..

3.) 25 Feb 2019 18:09:24
Agree. It is definitely a stain on our history that we can't ever remove.
Everything that our great club stands for and we employed a corrupt charlatan and a crook.

{Ed025's Note - you are being too nice to him there smit..

4.) 25 Feb 2019 19:54:43
Well he done well for England didn't he Ed.

{Ed025's Note - unbeaten penysarn, and a top musician...you should see him on the fiddle mate..

5.) 25 Feb 2019 22:26:47
He used us and we used him Everton are just as bad. We are in trouble over youth signings etc so are club is not angelic, well not under Moshiri.

6.) 26 Feb 2019 14:47:45
I don't see how we used him, or how he used us. We employed him and reviewed it after 6 months. After that time our board decided not to continue with his services. that's football.
It is more to do with him being a Walsh choice and Walsh leaving too.

To say Everton are just as bad as Allardyce is absurd.
Im not sure what axe you have to grind with the club DC but your bitterness towards Moshiri, silva and the board is evident in your posts.

7.) 26 Feb 2019 16:57:21
We have heard all this before from Dark Clouds, defending Allardyce and trying to throw some of the Blame on Everton, he got well paid for being the Manager and very well compensated when Everton sacked him.

8.) 02 Mar 2019 11:12:27
We all love Everton and many love football in general but let's be honest, fotball is full of people at all levels making money that they maybe should not, Allerdyce is no different to most in the game.
We have many players we cannot sell because they are on fat contracts and will not go for that reason. Silva came because we offered him loads of money, god knows why we did. Agents take money from the game and get crazy contracts for players.
So picking on Sam is stupid he is just part of a greedy sport that takes us suckers for granted.
When I grew up I had idols in this game, I have non know and little or no respect for anyone in the game.

{Ed002's Note - You need to realise that what you are saying only applies to a small proportion of the game, the top flight in England and a few teams from the other major European leagues - it is far from the norm. If you look at the Dutch and Belgian leagues it is not like this at all. There is a significant financial imbalance still.}

9.) 02 Mar 2019 14:43:51
The reason behind our dislike of Sam DC, is because he does get paid a lot of money for what he does, but unlike most others doesn't then go and set up a dodgy deal to get even more money. Breaking the rules made by his own employers, employers who were already paying him a large amount of money.
Whether he has been overpaid in his career or not, I don't know but he has been caught out and proven to be a cheat.
You call us stupid for so called picking on Sam. Well we are not the ones calling Silva a fraud, when all he is doing is earning a wage and trying to do his best.
You are slating a good honest guy and in the same breath championing a cheat.
You need to reassess who is being stupid here.

10.) 06 Mar 2019 20:49:13
Have to be careful what you say smit666, Alardyce has not been proven to be anything of the sort, has he been charged or fined for criminal activity. In our case, we could not in fairness to our desperation attract anyone else, so went for Alardyce ('Proven record in the Prem') and just for an end of season contract, Sam knew our desperation so held out. We gave him an 18 month contract, with full intention of paying him off at the end of the season. Personally I would have given him until the end of his contract and taken more time and due dilligence over his replacement instead of jumping for a 'proven' failure. That is business and decisions taken with far more knowledge than I can admit to.

Last season we were worrying about how many goals we were conceding but Marco sorted it. This season there are worries over scoring. I am confident Marco will get it right.


1.) 25 Aug 2019 07:53:25
Looks like he favours a 4-3-3 system with Delph giving us a left footed player, will be interesting Smit mate . should give us more in attack Marco will sort it I am sure.

2.) 25 Aug 2019 09:31:51
Theres no doubting we will find the goals. There aren't really many personnel changes in that area from last season except a few additions. So it's just a matter of getting the forward line to sharpen up, find a rhythm and try the new guys to see what extra they can bring.

And if let's face it. If Keane was a bit sharper in the moment when we conceded the first goal, we might not be so down this weekend.

It will come. I'm sure of that.


3.) 25 Aug 2019 10:45:33
Smit Siva is useless why van you not see it, there is no proof that he is cabable of managing in this league. I can only think he is a personal friend of yours. He should never have been appointed as manager.
Example, we got our best results when Gomez was injured yet we bought him back to the club, totally illogicakl he is a fool.

4.) 25 Aug 2019 12:52:44
Gomez slows the game down to much for me and Schneiderlin (when in the mood) is a better passer of the ball. Need the new lads including Delph into the line up from the start, maybe Lincoln could be the starting point. On Mr Silva, his first season didn't reach the heights of Koeman or Martinez. Not advocating yet but how long does he (Mr Silva) get and if whole season what position would be acceptable at season end?

5.) 25 Aug 2019 12:52:49
Don't agree to that at all dc if he was that useless I am sure that the powers that be would never had employed him in the first place we have to give the guy time, once Moise and Iwobi gets up to speed and Delph takes over from Gomes the goals will come, don't be so impatient, the last few games last season saw a marked improvement and Marco will have the rest covered for this years push on, he has my full support

Iwobi are up to speed the goals will comes.

6.) 25 Aug 2019 15:06:42
DC we all know your thoughts and that you wanted Allardyce to remain.
DFS Silva for me has to beat last seasons points tally by a good few, that way we see progress. I'm not going to pin a league position on it because many different factors are at play.
We could conceivably beat last seasons points total but finish 8th again. That would have to be seen as progress even though the league position doesn't suggest so.

7.) 25 Aug 2019 17:32:27
Dc, I know you are not a fan of Silva and steam roll the guy at every opportunity, that’s fair enough when called on, but it would be nice when we get a good result that you actually praise the guy, or is that asking too much.

I am not a fan of Lewin, whether he will be better with another striker alongside him who knows.

Personally I think Lewin is Championship at best, but will certainly praise the guy if he proves me wrong and starts scoring.

No matter what Silva achieves will never change your view on the guy.

You go in hiding when he gets results, then as soon as we lose, you cannot wait to say told you so.

I think it’s time to give Silva some slack.

8.) 25 Aug 2019 17:53:32
Can't speak for DC smit, but all I personnely pointed out about Alardyce was he delivers what it says on the can. He was given an 18 month contract - even though the Club apparently only wanted a 'saviour' till the end of the season -. He should have been allowed to see that contract out, there was no rush for Silva, I mean who else wanted him! 8th under Alardyce, 8th under Silva. My view currently, yardstick if you will, is see how we do against Wolves (played us off the park on our own ground) , this time around.

9.) 25 Aug 2019 17:57:18
Good post Bignev. Silva hasn't done anything to warrant him getting sacked and for fans to call for his head just shows a lack of understanding of the game in general.

10.) 25 Aug 2019 17:54:52
I have to agree with DC for once, over the signing of Gomes but I think you know my views on him.
What did concern me in the game against Villa was the slow build up of play, very predictable so much so it enabled Villa time to get men back in numbers.

THis happened also last season, Coleman seems to have games like this, he is one of the main outlets to begin the attack. swiftly and direct but has this mental block sometimes and for what ever reason lacks the confidence to go forward with purpose that we all know he is capable of doing, that is worrying at this level.
We don’t seem to have anyone from the midfield to go forward and too go pass people at this moment.

Having said this we still should of won the Game too miss the sort of chances in front of the goal is totally unacceptable at this level
I am sure that the Management team at Everton are well aware of the lack of quality in front of goal and the slow tempo at Villa and have every confidence they will put this situation right immediately.

11.) 25 Aug 2019 19:06:35
Hopefully they will Uran but immediately, I wouldn't hold your breathe. Silva has had his transition season, nobody can now say this isn't his Team, yet only 3 games in and 1 goal, s
Ays a lot.



17 Aug 2019 09:48:03
I'm thinking 2-2 today. Bit of a makeshift midfield and still some rusty players.

What's everyone else's predictions?


{Ed025's Note - im hoping for a narrow win myself smit, but they will be hurting after last week and there is the silva factor so they will be well up for this one mate, so a draw is a distinct possibility i would say..

1.) 17 Aug 2019 12:21:45
It won't be easy as I expect a reaction from Watford to their defeat last week but I'm going for 2-0. Kean and Richarlison to score


2.) 17 Aug 2019 13:03:32
Not confident but I’m hoping 2-0. Kean scoring.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 10:56:43
Well Ed if they're as bad as last week it will be a win.
They always seem to up their game against us.



16 Aug 2019 17:48:00
Mcarthy included in the Ireland squad. Well that will be a short Palace career then.


1.) 16 Aug 2019 18:47:29
🤣🤣🤣 very true.



15 Aug 2019 20:39:09
Iwobi has said the club spoke to him whilst on holiday and only one bid for Zaha in July.
Not the scatter gun approach the media would have us believe then.

Looks like once the bid for Zaha was rejected Iwobi was most likely next on Marcel and Marcos list.

Brands also saying he's happy with our CBs.

If we can keep hold of Marcel and Marko we should be in a very good position as a club by the time we are playing in our new home.


1.) 15 Aug 2019 20:51:06
Yep I think they will both want to enjoy this ride mate.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 03:48:49

I cannot agre with you guys as far as Silva goes.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 17:27:10
We know that DC. I hope he is with us for a while though as this means we are doing well.
I know you don't like him but you can't say he isn't a good coach.

All the players that play under him even from his past club's sing his praises.
He has improved almost all our lads.
Some of the best managers rate him. They all can't be wrong.

{Ed025's Note - im with you smit..

5.) 16 Aug 2019 21:25:16
Silva inherited a badly balanced squad and patiently got to work with the signings he identified that would fix the issue. By the beginning of March he had us beating all comers. This is the coach that can get us into the top six. I saw some really good results and performances at the end of last season to convince me of that.

{Ed025's Note - i agree ace..

6.) 17 Aug 2019 05:20:45
I think you are wrong Smitt when you say DC can't say Silva isn't a good coach. He can and he will but that's his choice

I don't agree with him and like you will just have to look at it in a year or 2 when Silva is still with us and we have delivered on the promise we have shown since he joined us

I don't understand DC's antagonism towards Silva but hope he is proven wrong as it will be us, Evertonians, that will benefit.



30 Jul 2019 19:40:17
I know it won't happen but just visualise this for a minute

Zaha Keane Richarlison with Bernard or Siggy behind them.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 19:45:03
Difficult to visualise pace like that 💪.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 19:58:51
I think I'd like to see Bernard given a go in the number 10 role, especially now with more natural goalscorers around him. I think Siggy offers more goals, but Bernard would offer more intensity and chances for others, plus would quicken up our attack.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 21:38:02
I think siggy sees a pass much sooner than Bernard. An plays better through ball's.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 22:08:51
He is far more productive than Bernard but he won't be around for ever.

DC 38 million for a kid who scored 15 goals in his debut season with us. Hmm. Not sure we overpaid.
Im sure you are aware of Richarlisons first season with Watford and why he was hampered. I expect you understand the situation and reason for drop off in form so to slate him for it is just naive.

DC didn't you want Allardyce to stay? Yes you did. Now you want to win every game. And you think we're confused, your comments are all over the place.
Silvas defensive record is as sound as anyone's in the league, the proof is there to show that.
As for great history that will forever be tarnished by your mate Allardyce the crook.
