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.



05 Jul 2017 22:25:39
Lakaku reported to be in talks with Man Utd since 9pm today.

I would rather he went to Chelsea as I think Man U are one of the teams we could overtake -.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 22:50:21
him and pogba are very good friends tho, on hols together, maybe he wants to prove mourinho wrong as well

personally i don't give a toss where he goes, we are emerging as a very strong team / squad.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 23:02:51
Bang on Dixie.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 23:15:33
90th minute next season lukaku misses a sitter we hit them on the break sandro puts rooney 1 on 1 an the mighty blues take all 3 points 😂😅😂.

4.) 06 Jul 2017 06:17:23
there is a guy who walks his dog in the local park where i walk mine (sefton park) he works for efc altho i don't recognise him or his initials he told me in feb that lukaku was going to move to manu only probs is rom himself he wants chelsea so now all the talk is rom is going to manu and they are going to add wayne to the deal as long as we are prepared to pay his 250 aweek wages if you say it out loud it doesn't make sense first off we would not pay that much for rooney secondly why would we swap or deal only to get the short end of the stick i have no doubt that manu want rom they might even get him but the rest is just crap i don't see him getting more than 100-120 a week at efc and that's a stretch is kind of odd that it is the sun that broke this crap i mean story yesterday can't imagine where they are getting there headline grabbing storys from this is rumour mongering at its worst their is no way any newspapers actually no what's going on during any negotiations and if rooney is going to be an efc player its because its what wayne wants not because of rom or how much efc will pay him.

5.) 06 Jul 2017 07:24:53
Lukaku wants Champions League football. Well as I see it, seven teams will be vying for the four spots next season and none of them are a shoe in. I include Everton in the seven. If he doesn't want to be part of the revelotion then more fool him. If he wants guaranteed Champions League football, sign for Celtic. Let's get as much as we can for him and Barkley and enjoy what's coming. COYB. IKWT.

{Ed002's Note - He wants to play at the highest level and be challenging for league titles and playing in the Champions League regularly.Everton cannot offer that.}

6.) 06 Jul 2017 08:49:49
I'm not going to lie, I'll be gutted when he goes - regardless of where it is! You can't knock a player for having ambition and being driven toward success. Unfortunately, I feel that we just aren't where we need to be just yet to keep a player like him. I've no doubt that in a couple of seasons that we will, just not right at this moment - c'est la vie!

Good luck to the lad anyway, and we will move onwards and upwards 😊.

{Ed025's Note - i dont have a problem with him leaving either pierre, i wish he would keep his mouth shut at times but i have no axe to grind with him...good luck rom but i think you may have left a bit too soon as you could have been a part of something big..

7.) 06 Jul 2017 09:07:55
Celtic will guarantee him titles Ed and also Champions League, if he is as good as he thinks he is then he could do it even at a club that is not the elitist when it comes to challenging for the Champions League title.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know how celtic come in to it gray?.. :)

8.) 06 Jul 2017 09:17:50
I get what you're saying Ed regarding him keeping his mouth shut mate, some of the stuff he says is just in jest though to be fair.

{Ed025's Note - it always seems that when he,s away with the belgian squad he has a little pop at the club pierre, no biggie though just a tad disrespectful..

9.) 06 Jul 2017 08:54:23
ED02 is their any reason we can't offer champions league in the near future as top 4 is the aim next season as for him going to UTD I still think he will end up at Chelsea Mourinho didn't rate him and sold him while at Chelsea so with him wanting Morata why would he also want Lukaku.

{Ed002's Note - Right now it would be very difficult for Everton to break in to the top four and stay their on a consistant basis - even more so to challenge for the league. I have no idea why you think Mourinho didn't rate Lukaku at Chelsea - that is simply not true.}

10.) 06 Jul 2017 10:04:06
I think our aim is to consistently challenge top 4 although I know winning the league is out of our grasp just now regarding Lukaku and Mourinho my thinking was he sent him out on loan twice then he must of agreed to the sale for him to leave. in all honesty the sooner he leaves the better great goalscorer but his all round play isn't fantastic and he won't get away with as much as he did with us.

11.) 06 Jul 2017 11:25:03
no you can't knock a player for wanting cl football but how many of us would give up everything we have for a little bit more or the promise thereof utd have locked themselves into playing rom now they have they're man and will have to play around him. not good imho utd will again have to change the way they play to accommodate rom smacks of inconsistency in the coming season. how long before the nonsense that has ruled his time at goodison starts at old trafford. give him a year like he did with us and see if he still wants chelsea move glad this chapter of our history is closed roll on the next.

This is heading back to the dark days.
The team, manager, board are simply not fit for purpose

Get Benitez out this week.

No idea how to fix this now

We are a total embarrassment.


{Ed014's Note - look on the positive side, you and Newcastle fighting it out next season for the Championship title, it’ll be a nail biter! ?

1.) 15 Jan 2022 20:34:37
Ed 014 hahahaha first time I've laughed all day ? sad but it could be true.

{Ed014's Note - sorry Pauly, I couldn’t help myself but glad it made you laugh mate. ?

2.) 15 Jan 2022 20:45:50
Ed14 ???.



03 Jan 2022 18:26:01
Lets see what Benitez does with his signings. I'm impressed with window so far - think we will look like a different team (on paper at least) after window - plus DCL and Ricki playing.

I really don't agree with changing manager - I think he doesn't trust defence - hence 5 at the back - once he has his own players in we hopefully will see better football.

He can't be responsible for Keane and Holgate being useless yesterday - he has to expect we do better than that.

I'm quietly optimistic we will be a decent team come the end of the season with plenty of young players which we have been crying out for

Keep the Faith (I have lost the faith 4-5 times already this season mind)


1.) 03 Jan 2022 18:40:30
I would join you there mate.

2.) 03 Jan 2022 18:45:05
Blimey GB you change like the wind.

3.) 03 Jan 2022 18:48:13
As long as we stave off relegation, I will be happy. Oh how expectations have changed.

4.) 03 Jan 2022 18:54:54
We concede from set pieces alot. And the 2 full backs have abit aggression and fight in them. Hope they don't give free kicks galore away round the box lol. But seriously the 2x full backs were needed. Now another CM and No.10 and I'll be happy.

{Ed025's Note - how about a centre half dentie?

5.) 03 Jan 2022 18:55:04
I just want the right man for the job whoever he is mate.

6.) 03 Jan 2022 19:04:00
Of course he can be responsible for Keane and Holgate he coaches them. He apparently sets the tactics.

7.) 03 Jan 2022 19:21:10
As dire as the performance was yesterday I still have faith. Maybe just maybe Rafa is buying well and building a team. JP at a good age and years still ahead of him. Patterson, Godfrey, Branthwaite and Mykolenko a back four for years to come. Gray and Gordon on flanks, DCL up front and Simms and Dobbin too. Thought I might add some positive the page. Cheer up blues.



02 Jan 2022 00:36:34
Mykokenko, Kamara and Patterson in

Digne, Kenny, Allan, Toson out would be a decent window

Add in sigs, delph, Coleman off salary in the summer and somehow get shot of Gbamin, Davies, Iwobi and Rondon

Patterson Mina Godfrey Mykokenko

Townsend Decore Kamara Gray





1.) 02 Jan 2022 06:54:26
Gorden over Townsend any day for me Sobs and do you think Richarlison would stay if on the bench?

2.) 02 Jan 2022 10:17:40
Townsend ahead of Richarlison?

3.) 02 Jan 2022 10:55:36
Richarlison benched?
Sobs you still hungover from new year?

4.) 02 Jan 2022 12:15:06
Richarlison despite playing for a team that has no creative midfielders still averages a goal every three games. Townsend is a good sub at best.



19 Dec 2021 21:41:16
I know this is an EFC page but I love it when LFC drop points - Guaranteed a crazy rant from Klopp - he's very predictable and 100% blames the ref every time!
Worst loser in sport other than McGreggor in UFC.


{Ed0666's Note - I also enjoy Everton dropping points which is every week

1.) 19 Dec 2021 22:04:14
Totally agree Sobs.

2.) 19 Dec 2021 22:04:15
Sounds like a crazy rant from Sobs to me 100% even.

3.) 19 Dec 2021 22:04:40
We are both happy then. Long may it continue. Looking forward to Klopps traditional fixture congestion moan when drops points over new year.

4.) 19 Dec 2021 23:37:27
As much as I don’t like klopp and his constant whinging - for once think he has a point with the Kane tackle.
Definite red.
We’ve had players sent off for less.
Refereeing is so inconsistent.
How Kane got a yellow but Robertson got a red is beyond me.

5.) 20 Dec 2021 04:58:59
I wish we had more bad losers at Everton. Maybe then we wouldn't lose so much.

6.) 20 Dec 2021 05:18:51
To be fair Klopp has a point about VAR. Kane should have been off, Robertson was off, Salah was handball. One right, two wrong. VAR has taken over refereeing.

7.) 20 Dec 2021 09:59:33
It makes it all the better when they have been wronged - he goes bananas ?.

8.) 20 Dec 2021 10:26:27
Could be worse for Klopp, Everton seem to be the only team whose players get booked for diving.

9.) 20 Dec 2021 12:06:36
Robbo should be in pentonville nick for that assault on Emerson Royal. tried to kick him into row z, had no chance of getting the ball.

It's about time they had someone sent off. They dirty so and sons but that was first red card in 113 games.

Kane probly would have gone had his foot been few inches higher. Seemed only 6 inches off the ground, still dangerous tho. The type of challenge to get an orange card, if such a thing existed.

About time they never got a dodgy pen, been getting them for 100 years.

Klopp just drives me crazy, like their fans, so entitled. They think they only have to turn up to win the game, league, trophy.

10.) 20 Dec 2021 13:22:54
It isn't just Klopp though is it! Ever since Ref's turned pro the standard has been dire then they bring in VAR (clear and obvious my backside now that is obvious) and make them even worse.

11.) 20 Dec 2021 21:00:19
Well hey should stop using those lines on VAR. The linesman does not have lines to use when he makes the call. The decision should stand unless it is incorrect when "clear and obvious" to the naked eye on review.



05 Dec 2021 13:16:29
The problem at EFC is very unusual- understand lack of investment at NUFC and fans taking it out on the board but just look at some of our expensive signings:

The issue lies with the players and who brought a lot of these players in

The board need to seriously sit down and say who's up for the fight and trying and who isn't - take a hit and get some of these players moved on

The only players I'd keep are Pickford, Mina, Godfrey, Digne, Allan, Decore, Townsend, Gray, DCL, Richarlison, Gordon

I think Pickford, Mina, Richarlison and Allan will all be looking for moves

As much as Keane wanted to leave - we should have kept him - he would have played last 10 games and think he could have took his chance - an unhappy Keane is a lot better than Randon!

Going forward Moshri needs to take a back seat - Brands takes control of all transfers (or sacked if he has been signing this lot)

Target players like Mee, Toney, Aarons, Wilson etc - our players give 60-70% or are simply not good enough

What a mess.


1.) 05 Dec 2021 13:45:47
Spot on.

2.) 05 Dec 2021 13:59:10
It is Sobs as most of our players are simply not good enough, I doubt any manager could improve them, for me Rafa has to be given time.

3.) 05 Dec 2021 14:48:49
Agree with most of that sobs. I think another major issue this season is digne, he has been Really really poor in my opinion. There is barely any competition for places which does the help.
Not sure who decided to loan out the young French left back (nkonkou / can't spell his name! ) Read a report somewhere recently that he's performing really well In the Belgian league. does anyone know whether we can recall him in January?

4.) 05 Dec 2021 15:27:50
Whitty - Digne has been poor but nowhere near the top of the list when it comes to our poor performers this season, think there are several more who have been worse.

Coleman, Keane, iwobi and Rondon all ahead of him in poor ness stakes.

Godfrey left out as he had C.V. and looked like it knocked him for 6, however has improved last few games.

I’d take Dave Watson and Barry Horn over Roony. However jokes aside - need to stick with RB - give him a window and seen who he brings in (Lewis Gibson possibly back too)

Just a few players on so called lower teams who would improve our team

Martial could be a risk worth taking on a loan -.

Kanchelskis Howard neville Saha were pretty good cast offs from Man Utd. I’m struggling to think of a bad player we have taken from Utd - then I remembered schniderlin.

How have they moved way ahead?

I don’t agree with that - if they want our third choice left back then so be it - we have x2 decent left backs at club.

We also have a top keeper, quality defensive midfielder, world class left winger and x2 youn forwards who scored over 40 goals between them last season

If we get a right back and a playmaker (or get James playing) we will have quality all over the park

Come on have some faith


This is the basis of a pretty decent team.

That’s just words - Bobby koeman silva could have all been described as hungry and progressive (maybe silva not progressive by time we got him)

All I want is someone who tells the players not to come back in the dressing room unless they are knackered after 90mins and have given it their all - if I see effort I would be happy

Lampard - no way - he’s done nothing
Rooney - maybe - he knows what we expect

No more foreign managers please! - dogs of war - let’s not be embarrassed to play like that - make teams dread coming to Goodison

By the way I’ve been given stick about our new left back - from what I’ve seen he is utter dross - hopefully get better but he has been rubbish in both games.

Dan - I said I was disappointed - I don’t think that’s a ridiculous statement.
If you watch the highlights crosses coming in from there right winger whilst Myko is either in the middle or off the pace trying to get back.
I hope this is not the case but to me he looked out of his depth which was worrying as playing Hull after all.

I hope I’m wrong but I thought he had a very poor game - added to which he got booked - again when he was off the pace.

I hope he gets better - I’m only commenting on one game. I haven’t seen much of him other than brief bits for Ukraine.

By the way - this is review I just found:

Vitaliy Mykolenko (LWB) - 4/ 10 - Having endured one of the worst starts to a debut possible (the hope of maiden clean sheet was extinguished in 43 seconds) Everton's January arrival showed some expected rust on his first competitive appearance for almost a month.

Unbelievable to be in this position considering we have signed Delph, Gomes, Allan, Decore, Klasson, Schniderlin, Besic, Gbamin, Sigs - also have Davies, Beni
Yet somehow we need another x2 (I’m probably forgetting a few others too)

I’d also say I was disappointed with our new left back. Seemed off the pace and out of position numerous times in cup - I really hope he doesn’t turn out to be a dud.

I’m with Ed - get some of the young ones in - Knowing EFC I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up with Longstaff and Barkley

I bet Small is kicking himself - he probs would have played second half od season at left back if he hadn’t gone to Saints

Lewin Gibson - Dobbin - Simms - Gordon - Beni - new full backs - there are young players around this team who could save a few million if they were developed.


{Ed025's Note - i think we have to give Myko more than 90 minutes before we start judging him sobs..
