Any truth in Viktor Gyokeres from Coventry - seems a good player.


1.) 28 Jan 2023 15:57:57
Would prefer him to Che Adams
Or the lad at Sheffield Utd.

2.) 28 Jan 2023 16:22:08
So would I mate.



31 Jan 2021 17:22:00
Ed - why would Everton let 3 strikers leave on loan and leave us with only one who has just come back from injury and is going through a little drought

I could understand if we were 10th-14th say but for years we have heard board say they have aspirations of Europe - well surely this is the chance we were waiting for

There surely must be something we are not hearing lined up - it's not like we are free scoring from midfield either.


{Ed025's Note - i would hope we have somone lined up sobs, otherwise its a very strange state of affairs mate..

1.) 31 Jan 2021 19:20:45
Surely we have someone lined up?! It's been very clear that carlo doesn't want to play youngsters/ they're nowhere near good enough so essentially we have no attack minded subs if tosun and Bernard go. Yesterday was a good example of that. Utterly devoid of ideas going forward and the only attacking player on the bench, Gordon, remained on the bench for the entire match. Looking as though we'll only attract players through ancelottis name this summer because European qualification seems pretty unlikely. Does make you wonder about the ffp situation though because surely we won't be able to spend loads again and it's not like any of our unwanted players are particularly saleable.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 20:31:09
Last day syndrome yet again while I understand the need to reduce overheads can it really be considered at the expense of any ambitions the manager has?

3.) 31 Jan 2021 20:45:54
Ed025 leaving it all to late I think! It’s like the clear out has clouded issues with squad players performance and form.

{Ed025's Note - it is late wakka and thats certainly a worry, but it looks like the main strategy was to get as many fringe players off the books as they could, i can see the point but its a concern when we see 2 keepers on the bench and the lack of attacking strength we have mate..



22 Jan 2021 14:21:38
Vardy out for EFC game.


1.) 22 Jan 2021 20:33:26
And with DeBruyne out for 4-6 weeks it would be good to reschedule that in during that time.

2.) 22 Jan 2021 22:07:31
IF we are going to go anywhere in this league, we need to stop worrying about opposition players and concentrate more on strengthening our team. TOP 6 for me is a minimum.

3.) 22 Jan 2021 22:43:30
You need an element of luck to win a trophy and good fortune to win a league.
Maybe the above is luck turning in our favour. don't dismiss it.

4.) 23 Jan 2021 14:17:10
I’d much rather play city without debruyne than with him as I’m sure they’d rather face us without James etc you’ve got to take advantages when they present themselves that’s all I was saying stay well stay safe blues UTFT.

5.) 24 Jan 2021 14:04:55
We do have injuries too you know.

6.) 27 Jan 2021 13:18:55
Not sure if Teams would rather face us without James. Him playing on the right gives Teams a free run down their left. Play him through the middle with Iwobi as RWB and that is a more solid option.



26 Jan 2019 23:11:20
Summer hols can't come quick enough. This is turning into a disaster. Season is over for me. Would you give silva anymore millions if it was your money?
Trouble is, we are still paying Sam and Ronald and would be paying 4 managers if we sack Silva.

it's embarrassing and no real solution - giving people time is fine if showing signs of improvement but we look awful / no balance at all. I have no idea how to solve this - surely can't go back to drawing board again.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 08:33:58
Random question not everton related but seen as your names Newcastle if the eds allow I'll ask. Never been out in Newcastle before and going there with the missus in 2 weeks where would u recommend for food.

{Ed025's Note - not sure about the food johny but i have been there a few times and the big market or quay side are the best drinking haunts mate..

2.) 27 Jan 2019 13:02:41
Quayside mate - don’t take your misses anywhere else. Loads of bars and restaurants so just have a walk about and you will find loads. Aim for just below Tyne Bridge - that’s the best area.
Whatever you do - don’t end up in Sunderland;)



12 Jul 2017 23:32:37
The cherry (s) on top of the cream on top of the cake:

Luke Shaw (difficult one as he needs game time and this would push Baines out - but 6 million - great price)

Dzeko / Benteke / Girioud - personally I'd rather Dembele - but its a 45 million gamble but we have Rooney / ramirez. Dzeko and Giroud would only be around for 2 seasons.

Sigurtson - love it if we got him in exchange for Barkley. I think given its World Cup year Barkley has to be playing / I think we will get sigurtson and Swansea need to replace him. Good deal all round (he won't play at spurs and will always be under Ali's shadow.

I'd be happy with left back, sigurtson and benteke/ dembele.

Be dreaming if we got gray on top of that.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 07:27:52
wont get Luke Shaw for 6 million in todays market, maybe 15, Giroud all day long, 98 goals in five seasons and not a regular starter, doesn't rely on pace so age is irrelevant as you would get 4 years not 2, Ross wouldn't go to swansea if that's what you were on about mate, i'm not arsed if we pay 50 million for Sig as would improve us hugely.

Usmanov property raided today in Germany. Sure they will find the ownership rights to EFC and an xxxxl Arsenal shirt.


1.) 05 Oct 2023 18:50:58
Wonder if they’ll find the arteta money?



19 Sep 2023 11:00:14
To try and cheer the mood I'm trying to think of things that are worse than an Everton fan - it's a struggle but I'd definitely rather be an Everton fan than a burglar discovering Duncan Fergusons photo on the mantle piece whilst burgling at 2am.


1.) 19 Sep 2023 12:06:05
Thanks for the attempt to cheer me up Sobs. Unfortunately with us playing the way we are, I’ve got a pain in my stomach worse than Paul Scharner and am finding it more difficult to breathe than Stefan Freund!

2.) 19 Sep 2023 12:20:58
I would take an arrow in the neck right now so long as SDs resignation letter was pinned on it!

3.) 19 Sep 2023 13:40:20
Let's hope it isn't shot by our forwards JB mate.

4.) 19 Sep 2023 13:54:29
Getting kicked in the two goalies (someone on here called them that I think) is marginally worse.

5.) 19 Sep 2023 14:02:06
He certainly needs something maybe the arrow up his Harry may clue him up. DCL, Beto up front Garner 10, Onana or Decoure, Harrison McNeil flanks, Back 4 - who knows -.



13 Aug 2023 15:37:08
If you were a striker thinking about joining EFC would you think maybe not club for me? - directors can't come to game due to abuse, players getting abused non stop - if we want this club to get better surely we also have to get better - at the minute we are arguably the worst set of fans in the league.


1.) 13 Aug 2023 15:45:38
I would say it’s difficult to measure sets of fans when what they put up with differs so much. Easy to be a city fan when you win the treble. And our behaviour was pretty much the same when we enjoyed success.

By all means we can all be better. But are we the worst fans? Hard to say.

2.) 13 Aug 2023 16:04:54
Of course we are not. Our away fans are among the best. Our home fans are the same as every other Club, the majority are fine it is the minority that need a good slap. I was at Bolton v Everton in with theur fans. Grandson and his mates spent the whole game hurling abuse at Everton supporters and extremely little time watching the game.

3.) 13 Aug 2023 16:41:04
Of its a player from Italy then its a bit of light relief for them.
Leeds are a club run far worse than us.

4.) 13 Aug 2023 16:43:05
Think any striker watching the amount of chances we were making would jump at a move.
Sadly all clubs have stupid supporters who are brave on a keyboard. But before you run us down try getting a ticket for an away game. Given what we have had to watch over these last few years it's a bloody miracle we have any support.

5.) 13 Aug 2023 20:27:47
There may be a valid reason but surprised we haven't gone for vardy . Fantastic short term option would fit well into this team imho of course.

6.) 14 Aug 2023 03:25:07
I've said that all summer Clyde. If you can get 30 games out of Vardy, you'll get 15-20 goals.

7.) 14 Aug 2023 08:49:42
Yet again its the rotten social media warriors that are the cause of all this grief. I would be happy if they just banned the lot of it or at least regulated the providers making them responsible for what they allow on their platforms.

8.) 14 Aug 2023 09:36:18
This is the same Vardy who has scored two goals in last 39 games is it? - he’s finished - class player but no longer a 29 goal a season player - if he was every team in prem would be after him.



28 Jul 2023 09:25:57
All time - (premier league only) 11






anyone got a better 11 than that?


1.) 28 Jul 2023 10:10:25







2.) 28 Jul 2023 11:31:25
Sobs - not sure I’d have stones in defence, he was decent for us but not our best.

Also no Cahill or Arteta in your team?

3.) 28 Jul 2023 12:02:12
Yeah - hard picks - I liked Dave Watson, Pickford, Cahill, Arteta, barmby, gueye, hinchciffe - loads more but can’t get them all in.

Hard choices.

4.) 28 Jul 2023 12:26:51
Southall in Goal every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Baines, Weir, Davey Watson, Coleman

Arteta, Cahill and Barry

Rooney, Dunc, Lukaku

Martyn, Michael Ball, Steve Watson, Kanchelskis, Pembridge, Neville, Radzinski.

5.) 28 Jul 2023 12:47:58

Bainsey / Jags / Watson / Coleman

Pienaar / Barry / Cahill / Arteta

Big Dunc / Rooney

Be interesting to see the combinations for worst 11. So many to choose from!

6.) 28 Jul 2023 15:48:31
Current squad is our worst 11 lol.

7.) 28 Jul 2023 16:44:15
Looking forward to back 4 of Young, Keane, Coleman a nod trowski, young, Coleman and Keane - combined age 134 - is this oldest back 4. Not a criticism - if you are good enough you’re old/ young enough - just wondered if any older -? Pallister, Bruce, Irwin and Parker maybe?

8.) 28 Jul 2023 16:59:18
Adams, Bould, Dixon, Winterburn maybe.

9.) 28 Jul 2023 17:00:01





Subs, Martyn, Hibbert, Hinchcliffe, D Watson. Barry, Pienaar, Ferguson, Rooney.

Some strange posts on here. If it wasn't for Dyche we would be down already.

Said it a few times on here - the fact we have no strikers capable and of scoring makes defence tense as they know 1 goal let in and it's usually curtains.

Wingers must be thinking there is no point in crossing and it just filters through

We have some decent players - Pickford, Tav, iwobi, Onana, McNeil, DCL (patience running out with DCL mind)

Simms mustn't be able to play for 90 mins or he would start - I saw him 4-5 times at Sunderland and he's not the answer

Somehow need to stay up - we look awful mind - if I was playing us I'd play 3 up front - tell them to score 2 and EFC would never score 3 on a month of Sundays

Then it's finally getting rid of some of the rubbish we have - hopefully Dyche has some ideas

We are honestly worst team to watch in league - constantly give ball away and seems no plan how to get ball in net other than corners

I'm praying DCL gets fit and scores 3-4 in the run in - more chance of my hair growing back though I imagine

Regardless though - Dyche to stay next 2-3 seasons minimum for me.


{Ed025's Note - dyche is the only beacon of light for me sobs, we look like a team who is going down im afraid mate, this was a game we had to win for me and we ended up well short, i wish things were different ...but they are not..

1.) 16 Apr 2023 11:39:41
We failed to get a forward so are going backwards, can't blame dyche it's been destroyed from above this club.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely wolf..

2.) 16 Apr 2023 11:46:07
Agree dyche is the man for the job, however his selection of maupay over simms yesterday was baffling!

Maupay has scored 1 in something like 27 games.

Simms young and hungry, strong and a good target man, scored against Chelsea and looks better as part of a two up front. Still needs to improve however would much rather he starts over maupay any day.

3.) 16 Apr 2023 11:59:13
Shows how much we miss Onana and Doucoure, as well as already missing DCL. God help Dyche he was already working with scrap without losing 2 midfielders on top of it.

Not convinced we are gone yet. In my opinion whoever finishes in 17th place will have the lowest tally in the history of the PL.

It will be tight, very tight. Get those 2 back along with DCL would be a massive lift. Coleman and Patt fully fit also. Could make all the difference in the future of our great club that is in shambles.

Absolutely Dyche is the only one that seems to have the head screwed on.

4.) 16 Apr 2023 12:03:50
I think Onana being injured and Doucoure being suspended forced his hand a little bit. Davies, Gueye and Garner may have been too defensive, he rolled the dice and it didn’t come off. There is still time but I do think Leicester will just pip us to 17th. I just hope dropping down will see stock changes at the top and new owners.

5.) 16 Apr 2023 12:11:39
Dyche did exactly the same with Burnley last season they would of still gone down if he had not been sacked and you lot look like Burnley of last season to me.

6.) 16 Apr 2023 14:29:27
Not sure how Onana injured and doucore banned forced his hand in to playing Maupay?

I’m sure whoever takes over will ensure our state of mediocrity continues for the next 10 years with the occasional flirting with relegation.

Scary thing is that young and Coleman won’t be in next team next year I’m sure so effectively we need x4 full backs - seems a strange one paying 17 million for chemmani who is one for the future when we need full backs for now

Could have had Robinson and Digne down the left.

Played 36 and scored 4 last season - Maupay, Ali etc -can we not get linked with a forward who can actually score - I mean come on I know it’s not all statistics but we do need goals somewhere in the team - I can’t see where there going to come frim.

Play best team - we aren’t going to win league and can’t start every season where highlight is to stay in league surely - go out and try and win the cup.

Can i ask - do you really care? Finishing 17th, 16th, 18th and playing awful football getting beat most weeks - would you not rather beca yo-yo club - at least swing some goals and better football? - I’ve got to the point of not wanting to watch EFC style of football anymore - it’s the worst in league by a mile - our players cannot sting 2 passes together - our forwards cannot score - to see where EFC have gone wrong just take a look at Gomez contract - he’s on better money than most Arsenal team.

Good that BJU.

I have come to terms that we will never win or compete for the league in my lifetime - as a result I will often watch my local teams - Seaham Red Star and South Shields - I do support Everton from afar now as I found every week my weekend gets spoilt and affecting family life.

I think football as a whole will scary circus - how can businesses be in debt whilst paying their staff millions and millions a week - i'm afraid lots of fans will become less interested when they come to terms nobody other than 4-6 teams can win national trophy’s 90-95% of the time

I often wonder if the stories we would have had if not for the introduction of premier league - smaller teams would have won fa cup - league would have been shared

Seriously- Man City winning fa cup - who really cares - seeing shef wed, Bristol, Coventry, Birmingham etc. getting to a semi final is what inspires young fans and makes memories never forgotten - sadly those days are long gone

Liverpool, Newcastle, Arsenal, Man Utd, spurs, Man City, chelsea would all consider 5th as a failure - Everton spent so much money trying to get into this group - however if salary caps came in and sensible ticketing prices were introduced all clubs would have a chance and more importantly all fans could have hope - however - these days will never happen and as a result if you hope to watch champions league football you need to support one of the clubs mentioned which is the plan from those above - capitalism in action.
