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.

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;)

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.

Massive respect for Jags. If only all players behaved and were as professional as him.
Quality player - would be in team now if a little younger.


1.) 04 Jun 2019 17:40:37
He has been a terrific servant to the club. Still think we should of kept him for another season, but can also understand why. Top professional.

2.) 04 Jun 2019 17:54:38
One of the clubs finest servants and I am saddened to see him leave. I know life (and football) moves in, but him and Baines have been a big part of the club for so long, remained loyal and above all else - always have their all for the club. Good luck Jags.



23 Dec 2018 20:18:38
Nothing short of a awful but we have to expect games like this for a while. Brands needs to somehow do his magic and get better quality players in. We need to get some money in for people who are simply picking up a wage - Naisse, schniderlin, Toson, Sandro for example.
Need someone at club to decide if Galloway, garbutt, Kenny, Davies, garbutt hollgate, Dowell Robinson etc have future - if not need to move a few on. Quality over quantity (as spurs showed today) .
It's going to be rough for couple of years I think but I do not want manager after manager.


{Ed025's Note - but he has to turn things around and quickly sobs, or as sure as eggs is eggs beople will be calling for his head mate..

1.) 23 Dec 2018 20:43:13
Nothing short of shameful. In my earlier guise most of you had a right go. Just look at the blokes CV for gods sake. I was there yet again today, sit a third of the way up, no shape, obvious spaces to fill and run into. Thing is it wasn't us as the home team but Spuds, filling those spaces. Thought Martinez a good coach but rubbish Manager (could not understand with his CV why he was hired at THIS Club in the first place) . Koeman I could see because of the prestige but CV said no. We then bring in Alardyce, the guy delivers what is on the can! If we are serious about progressing do due Dilligence. Yes I am seriously advocating getting rid at this stage, I promise you we will not finish higher than 8th-9th a position Sam was slapped for.

{Ed025's Note - rome was not built in a day ktf, we all knew this was a long term project mate..

2.) 23 Dec 2018 20:59:59
Sobs, Who are these people. Beginning of the season we were on our way, on the right Kenny and Walcot had a good understanding LW Digne and Richarlison good understanding. Chances being made but not being taken, more importantly though the defence covered by the DM. And nobody is calling for the blokes head Ed25, just merely pointing out that as with Martinez and Koeman, some really bad advice is being taken by the ownership. There is absolutely nothing in all three's CV to justify their appointment at our Club. The only one of the three that could be justified is Koeman on a pure prestige point of view and attractivness for our great Club.

{Ed025's Note - you are saying hes not good enough to manage the club ktf, surely that is the same as calling for his head?, chopping and changing managers when we lose a few games is not the answer mate, its about building and improvement and that takes time..

3.) 23 Dec 2018 21:06:58
No comfort Ed025,

{Ed025's Note - im not saying it was great ktf, it was bloody awful and performances like that have to be eradicated, but this is our club and we have to stick together in good times and bad, thats what being a supporter is all about mate..

4.) 23 Dec 2018 21:35:31
Played with some good lads in my day (Pele) Ed25 and managed a few most have never hear of. The point is (I assume we are of equivalent age}, since Moyes we have been scrabbling. Be honest, this lad is Martinez without the waffle.

{Ed025's Note - im hoping your wrong ktf, yes there are concerns of course there is, but i have been around for 60 years and have seen the good the bad and the downright ugly, but this is my team and i will always back them to the hilt and i believe in moshiri and the vision he has for the club, at the moment he is backing silva and brands and thats good enough for me, of course things may change and my views along with it, but thats football mate..

5.) 23 Dec 2018 21:38:56
Unacceptable sobs, NO we do not have to accept. I am appalled.

6.) 24 Dec 2018 18:42:41
Well you are in for some bad days because we are miles off Chelsea, city, spurs, Liverpool and Arsenal. Add in Utd and we have 1 point - we have had no manager in premiership era who has anything more than a shocking record against all of these clubs - and you can chuck in Utd as well. Not a single player would get in the top 6 - that’s awful to say by honest.

I think 20 or so need to be off the books - garbutt, Williams, jags, Galloway, Browning, marralas, scnindetlin, Besic, jmac, Bernard, lookman, Sandro, Naisse, Toson - then think about signing some quality players.

I know that sounds really shocking but we are too loyal to some of these players - lookman has done nothing but people make out he is pele, people saying there is a player in Sandro - well he has scored 1 goal in 2 seasons and Naisse tries hard so people think he should start up front. Baines legs have gone yet people think he should somehow be bossing midfield - it’s crazy.

Until drastic action is taken we will be same year on year.
I do think this will be addressed but I think it will be 2 seasons minimum before we are closing these gaps.

We now have players belonging to 4 different managers and we just keep on signing and signing mediocrity - wanting more and more players.



13 Dec 2018 08:19:43
Just been reading a good article about one of our prolific forwards in days gone by - Brett Angel. He scored 1 in 20 - worst player I've seen in my time but that's by the by.
Just read that on his last appearance for us he was awful. He had been booked and made another fowl - apparently EFC fans joined in with the QPR fans in shouting off! Off! Off! (Bars in mind we had to win to stay up- which we did via an Andy Hinchcliffe free kick)
Any case he didn't get sent off but was subbed off. Once off he met Big Dunc in players lounge (he was likely suspended) - Big Dunc tried to cheer him up with booze!

By the time everyone else came in he was drunk as a monkey. He was vomiting in plant pots and also holding sick in his mouth when chairman came in room.

He was sold to Sunderland the next day where he was equally prolific.

We finished 17th that year - Southall, Watson, Ball, Ferguson, Rideout etc. Surely there has never been a worse forward in recent times - Bakayoko springs to mind possibly.


1.) 13 Dec 2018 10:16:22
Without doubt the best and most prolific strikers I ever saw were Latchford Sharp and Gray. I'd give my left nut for one of those today ;-p.

2.) 13 Dec 2018 12:31:48
Loved Latchford made it look easy.

3.) 13 Dec 2018 16:02:07
Alex Young or Dave Hickson we would be top four no doubt.

4.) 13 Dec 2018 18:43:44
Liniker was top drawer also.

5.) 13 Dec 2018 20:49:00
Some of Gray's headers, is it any wonder some of the stupid remarks he comes out with now a days.



12 Dec 2018 20:36:37
Vlacic has just helped CSKA beat Real 3-0. He has been player of the month x2 in a row.
Maybe he could have a future with us.
Onyekuru is scoring 1 in 3 in Turkey playing on the wing
It's not all good - Sandro couldn't hit a cows arse with a frying pan!


1.) 12 Dec 2018 22:06:22
'Sandro couldn't hit a cows arse with a frying pan! '

Hahaha I like that mate!

2.) 12 Dec 2018 22:14:43
Vlasic has already said he wants to stay at CSKA. Let's get a nice big fee for him because of his performances.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 23:48:11
should be able to double our money for him i'd say mate.

4.) 13 Dec 2018 12:38:07
That's fine bring him back, and send Theo out on lone.

5.) 14 Dec 2018 23:47:34
I thought it was a cows arse with a banjo, although I am open to the frying pan alternative. My wife used to call Frank Lampard (when he played for England) “cowsarse banjo” as always seemed to miss. A lot of the humour seems to be disappearing I remember we called our own Stuart Barlow “jigsaw”, with affection although he was not the worlds greatest striker .

Let’s bring the laughs back 😉.



11 Dec 2018 13:54:16
this will be unpopular but I don't think Big Dunc is the right man to be coaching our forwards. Completely different to him and he was hardly prolific. I loved him as a player but think we have to put sentiment to one side and look at the coaching.

I think he should be moved to ambassador or help Rhino with u23s

Back to the drawing board after last night - all I know is that Bernard, Tosun, lookman and Walcott will cause us a lot of frustration for the rest of the time they are with club - good players but none would get into the top 6 teams.

Need some proven players in this league - Zaha and Decore would spring to mind.

I deleted all my EFC apps yesterday and reinstalled them 30 mins later - I'm Everton til I die (just hope they don't send me to early grave)


1.) 11 Dec 2018 14:35:57
IMO Bernard may just need more game time in the PL he works well with Digne reminds me of the Baines and Peanuts early on in their partnership.

2.) 11 Dec 2018 20:31:21
Even more unpopular I think Colman and sigs also are not doing it Colman has never been the same after the injury and sigs has a great game one week and then dose nothing for a month or so not consistent enough for me . I will probably get a roasting for saying that I also agree with you sobs about Dunc I've thought that for a few years now.

Would not like to start season without Zouma and Gueye. The whole spine of team would be gone - particularly as we have no idea who will be upfront.

Sell him.

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.

We could buy Zouma perminantly and then loan bats I think. That would be a better option - Zouma is good enough to stay and we could look at bats.

Agree. The problem with Everton though is that we are selling players that we want to keep.
At the minute we find it difficult to attract the top quality players (Pepe and Kane for example in this window) .
Therefore the top players we have somehow we need to keep.
Make money on Dowell, Lookman, Robinson, Schniderlon, JMac - but not Lakaku, Richarlison, Gueye, Digne etc.

Otherwise the buy cheap sell high ends up in the NUFC model.

It’s not a recipe for success though is it. Just ask Southampton.

I think we would have done better over last 15 years if we kept Lukaku, Rooney, Stones, Arteta, Barmby, Gravison, Speed, Barmby, Ferguson

Big problem with Lukaku was we should have bought replacement prior to selling - maybe this is why Delph has been brought in?

Maybe not Jeffers mind 🤪.

Never heard much about Kean before this window. Is he a bit of a gamble?

Think we need cover at right back also

I would take Pepe over Malcolm all day!

Zouma, Delph, Pepe, keep Gueye, + striker (no idea who though) and a right back - is that greedy 😁

Add Naisse and Martina to that list of outs.


{Ed002's Note - Kean was always intended to be part of an exchange deal but that has not happened in the end - he has a growing reutation and there is serious interest in him from elsewhere. I would hope and expect he will be advised that a move to Everton would not be good for him or his future. I am sorry but Pepe will not be moving to Everton, but Everton have a serious need to sort out that right side still and Malcom is a very good solution and one you should be thinking about.}

Why don’t we get back up with Crouch and Andy Carroll while we are at it.
This is West Ham model - sign players that used to be good in the PL for other clubs and expect levels of performance which they had years ago - Give them 3 year contracts on a fortune and no sell on value at all.

We should have learnt not to do this from Ginola, Gasgoine, Eto, Rooney etc.
