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.

Any offer above 40 for Gordon- yes
Allan 5-10 - yes
DCL 35+ yes

Holgate (sorry ginger dan - i really think your opinion are spot on but for me not holgate) -8-10 million - yes

Davies - 5-10 yes

Gray green 5-10 yes

Rondon / Ali / Gbamin - free

100 million and not loss to team

FYI - just want to re affirm thevlove for ginger dan - regular poster - passionate - probs as frustrated as me


{Ed025's Note - we are all frustrated mate. But it’s hang in there time mate..

1.) 16 Aug 2022 00:24:13
As frustrating a start it's been our spine is stronger we looked more of a team still work to be done and more windows needed, we signed some good hard working players it will click soon, and sorry there's at least 3 that are a loss to the team sobs.

2.) 16 Aug 2022 03:12:33
Admittedly we need to get better players than we have, but let's be honest here. If those players all left next week at your valuations, you'd be having a meltdown.
Some are first team starters, the others get plenty of time as they're our subs. We'd be left with a squad of about 10 and staring relegation in the face.
Obviously you're more than entitled to an opinion but i don't think you really thought that through, and should perhaps say how you'd replace 9 players with 100 million and not make us even worse!?

(Please don't use the cheesey line of "we can't get any worse")

3.) 16 Aug 2022 12:31:27
DCL why? Have you no fashion sense?



13 Aug 2022 15:36:17
Sell gordon, DCL, Allan, Davies, Gomes, Hollgate, Rondon. Give Ali back to spuds

Buy Camera and x2 forwards who can stay fit

Rondon should have started today

How come we are heading to 3rd game of season still nerdingva forward which we have needed since end of last season

EFC - so frustrating

6 centre backs
8 central midfielders
1 fit forward in rondon.


1.) 13 Aug 2022 15:53:10
Simms on the scoresheet again. ?‍♂️.

2.) 13 Aug 2022 15:55:03
After todays performance not sure why you’d sell Gordon, Holgate and Davies.

Gordon needs to play his natural position not as a centre forward.

Holgate was very good today - back 3 of him coady and Tarkowski will be solid, he’ll also learn from the other two.

Davies only just back from injury and played well putting tackles in.

3.) 13 Aug 2022 16:17:41
Gordon is useles ginger.

4.) 13 Aug 2022 16:22:52
Honestly - you would have thought we had a clean sheet today

I’d sell hollgate and davies because for 3-4 years they have been poor. If they had been good enough i'd suggest we wouldn't have bought 2 more centre half’s and 2 centre midfielders

Id sell Gordon and dcl to raise the cash as we nerd x2 forwards who can score and capable of playing 25+ games a season - i think we would get 40-50 million for them both (combined) which would allow us to do this.

5.) 13 Aug 2022 16:44:29
Sobs - Holgate under Lampard is playing the best football he has done. He’s only going to improve playing alongside coady and Tarkowski.

Gordon needs to play his natural position on the wing cutting in, once we get a striker and he’s played in his right position he’ll be decent again.

Wouldn’t sell either of those two.

No one will buy DCL as he’s currently injured.

6.) 13 Aug 2022 16:49:34
That comment sums up some of our supporters. Derogatory remarks about hair colour. WTF has someones hair colour got to do with it. Sometimes it's embarrassing being in the same fan group as these so called fans.
Take your derogatory comments and please go and find another team to support.

7.) 13 Aug 2022 17:10:12
Agree smit. I can see some sense in selling Gordon irrespective of his hair colour. If that would provide funds for someone that can score goals. I would definitely sell Keane and holgate.

8.) 13 Aug 2022 17:22:31
Lads just calm down for a little moment and realise that Alan's comment was nothing to do with Gordon's hair colour. He just missed a comma in his reply to gingerdan. "Gordon is useless, ginger".

9.) 13 Aug 2022 17:30:28
Ah ok! I don't think Gordon is useless by any means but I'm not sure if he is the player some fans make out either.

{Ed025's Note - he’s playing out of position whitty..

10.) 13 Aug 2022 18:16:03
Centre mid and Gordon might make it, winger / front 3, not a chance in hell.

11.) 13 Aug 2022 19:08:56
Well aware he is being played out of position but regardless if Newcastle where to bid 35 million I would sell. Don't get me wrong I think he's decent but not sure he's as good as some people make out on here.

12.) 13 Aug 2022 19:45:09
Tricky one Witty. I don’t want to be seen as a club who sells there best home ground talent and a lot of professionals in the game clearly rate him but 35 mil (arbitrary fig I know) is decent money when you consider Cornet was 17.5mil (how we have ended up with McNeil I will never know) ??‍♂️.



05 Aug 2022 16:07:42
How are we paying for these players?


1.) 05 Aug 2022 16:46:04
Lay-away I think is how the Americans call it. Or maybe one of these Klarna or clear pay companies? Got 12 months to worry about it as Rikkies fee went on to last year's books. Expect sales sales sales next summer again, but we need someone to perform to get that 50m in the bank before early July 2023 And repeat.

2.) 05 Aug 2022 19:21:49
How they structure the payments and amortise the deal means the transfer fee is spread over the next few years.
Next year if not this one we will get the Moise Kean fee. Around 25 million.

3.) 05 Aug 2022 23:29:09
When you guys go to the ground, buy a second hot dog or pie and take it home if you’re not hungry.



18 May 2022 14:57:36
Idris Guaye has let himself down.


1.) 18 May 2022 16:04:41
This is a really tricky one though isn’t it?

Why is one persons believe seen as more important than another persons?

If his believe/ religion does not believe in different aspects of lgbtq is it therefore wrong of him to stand up for his believes and not wear the shirt?

Have we not got to the point where a lot of what is done is more of an actual tick box exercise than really dealing with any issues? The taking the knee all well and good but has it actually done anything? I’d say no, particularly when you read about the racist abuse that still occurs at games. The abuse Toney and Henrys families allegedly suffered at the game the other day clearly highlights it’s not changed much.

I think Jake Daniels coming out is outstanding and one of the bravest things in football - I reckon his actions will do far more for the lgbtq community than players wearing a rainbow shirt because they are told to.

Actions an individual chooses are far more important than actions they are made to do.

2.) 18 May 2022 17:02:11
I don't believe he has let himself down at all. He is perfectly entitled to believe in what he wants to.
His religion, his country and presumably his friends and family have a contrary view to our own.
Whilst we may believe we are correct to hold the views we do, he believes he is correct to hold the views he does.
The massive problem currently is that no one is allowed to hold a view that doesn't correspond to the majority. We are told what we should believe, indeed freedom of speech is under significant attack.
Whilst I have absolutely no problem with whatever a persons sexuality is, equally it should be a right to have an opposite opinion.
That right should apply for any topic/ view.

{Ed001's Note - his religion does not hold a contrary view. That is not true and it is ignorance and bigotry that allows it to persist.}

3.) 18 May 2022 17:33:41
Exactly Ed!

People are being persecuted, jailed and murdered for being gay.

Don’t hide behind gastroenteritis- come out and say he is homophobic

Only reason jake Daniel’s had to come out like that in first place is because of people like gauye.

4.) 18 May 2022 17:49:15
I stand corrected Ed but still maintain that personal views are just that whether agreeable or not.

{Ed001's Note - then we will move nowhere as a society. You may as well say it is ok for murders to be committed as that person feels it is agreeable.}

5.) 18 May 2022 18:48:58
Don’t really want to get in to too much debate here, but Ed are you suggesting that everyone should have the same view for society to move forward?
Surely there has to be room in society for people to have differing opinions?

{Ed001's Note - no that is not what I am suggesting. What I am saying is we won't move forward while bigotry is accepted and defended with excuses or talk of how it is acceptable because of freedom of speech (which has never existed).}

6.) 18 May 2022 20:15:05
Fair enough Ed.
Iit is crazy in this day and age that there is still all the bigotry, racism, hatred, homophobia etc, but unfortunately don’t think it will completely change.

Regarding Gueye and his decision not to wear the rainbow shirt - now to most of us that seems a stupid thing for him to do and some will say he’s homophobic for it, but that’s probably because of the way we have been brought up.

I don’t support him in his actions but can understand to some degree why he has done it as he’s standing up for his own beliefs. In Senegal homosexuality is still a crime punishable by up to 5yrs in prison apparently - so clearly he’s been brought up to think that way and hasn’t budged from those beliefs.

Which brings us back to how we decide whose beliefs are more important.

Football as a whole hasn’t helped itself with the lgbtq issue either by staging the World Cup in Qatar another country that homosexuality is illegal in.

Let’s hope Jake Daniels brave actions in coming out is a watershed moment for the lgbtq community within football as guaranteed he’s not the only gay footballer.

I think the more gay footballers we see the more it will become the norm and for want of a better term “accepted”. The younger fans need to see this so it
does indeed become the norm.

7.) 18 May 2022 20:50:32
Sadly the last few days have once again reminded us that football is rife with bigotry and hate (even within our own club) .

I’ve said it before, I can’t believe a World Cup in Qatar is actually being allowed to take place.

Jake Daniels is a real story of hope, but it’s a shame that in 2022 it’s actually a story at all.

8.) 18 May 2022 21:13:04
If he has those views and is blatantly open about it then hope he never returns to our club.

9.) 19 May 2022 07:12:37
Freedom of choice is one of the cornerstones of democracy, if Gana chooses not to wear a shirt for whatever reason then so be it, he can and probably will suffer the consequences of that, people don't like to be told what to do.

{Ed001's Note - no it is not, that is a fallacy. People are not free otherwise there would be no crimes as anything you do is ok under freedom of choice.}

10.) 19 May 2022 07:46:24
But Gana has committed no crime, you can't liken his actions to somebody commiting violent crime, disagree with his actions by all means, but that is all anyone can do.

{Ed001's Note - but he is in breach of his contract, so it is not all anyone can do. PSG would be perfectly within their rights to fine him or sack him. By the way racism is a crime, why should homophobia be any different?}

11.) 19 May 2022 08:32:41
Because he hasn't said anything, he's refused to wear a shirt, do you think that should akin to communicating racist views.

{Ed001's Note - clearly it is the same, yes as he is endorsing discriminatory behaviour.}

12.) 19 May 2022 09:08:52
too many people trying to save the world. What has it got to do with us what someone believes in if it’s his religion then so be it. Who is to say what is right and what is wrong it’s his choice. Too many people now getting offended over everything. What has it got to do with you your not his mum and dad butt out.

13.) 19 May 2022 10:05:43
The problem here is one person due to his beliefs refuses to wear a shirt to support homophobia then other people like to get on their high horses and condem him now do I agree with his action no my kids are raised that everyone is the same regardless of skin colour sexuality ect ect but I won't condem a man for having a different opinion to me that's his right and people condemning him could be seen as doing the same thing he is they are not willing to understand what he believes are.



11 Mar 2022 22:23:26
We won't go down. Doom and gloom merchants same as on here couple of seasons ago.
We will finish above Norwich, Watford, Burnley, Leeds and Brentford
We are better than all 5 of these

I also fancy us to beat palace in cup and get to semis

Let frank do his job in summer and reckon top 16 next season is on the cards ?.


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

1.) 11 Mar 2022 23:08:05
Top 16?

{Ed025's Note - yes..

2.) 12 Mar 2022 08:50:56
Yep Sobs agree with all of that, think some on here would be happy to say I told you so, good post mate.

3.) 12 Mar 2022 12:42:14
Top 16? Jesus it really has got that bad.

4.) 12 Mar 2022 14:39:55
I will always be positive and support the club, but reality is we are utterly crap. The players alone are fully culpable. My heart and head says we will stay up but I honestly think it will be extremely close. I just hope if this is the reality the board finally wake up and move on as many of these absolute under achievers as quickly as possible. Keane holgate allan iwobi Kenny tosun rondon. also I would be flabbergasted if he continues with coleman (I love the lad) but reality is he has been atrocious this season. Patterson has to start in my opinion. Not seen much of him but he must be starving to play, he cannot possibly be worse than kenny and I'm still perplexed as to why he was subbed against bore off wood! I would have thought Kenny for richarlison rather than hauling off Patterson who was our best outlet in that 1st half.

Great signing if comes off

Leaders all over the pitch

Got to wonder who is going to leave as we are going to end up with huge squad

Hollgate and Kean probs have a life line with Mina / Godfrey injured but surely they are top of a list to go at some point this season

Rondon - probs saved by injury to DCL

Midfield - some are going to be moved on surely - gbamin, davies, gomes for a start.

He has a buy out clause - so if we match it it doesn't really matter if they want to do us any favours and don't need to pay above market price

Their best defender was leaving in any case - he was released so I don't think that matters either - technically we got him as a free agent from no club

We seem to be on decent terms - transferred a few players between us in recent years.

Rebuilding - How often we going to except that - we have a keeper and defence as good as we have had in years
If we get Gueye we have a midfield on a par - would have preferred Camara but he’s gone to Monaco

Add x2 forwards with DCL and we should be aiming for top 10 - i think we will get a forward this week

The whole club from board, manager, players, and fans should stop expecting mediocrity- we have a decent squad and should be in top 10 - no excuses - fo you think Gueye would come yo a team happy to finish 15th?

If you are happy with Holgate don't expect us in top half of league this season.

Davies / Kenny / Hollgate all the same - decent players but show no improvement from 1st season in team

Lampard playing hollgate, Davies, keeping Ali, signing McNeil and not playing Rondon from start yesterday makes me wonder his tactics / plan

I do thonk we will have a decent team in 2-3 weeks which will be well organised, full of energy, hatd to beat with x2 new forwards

I also thonk Davies, Hollgate, Gbamin, Gomes rondon gray won't be in that team.

I’d sell hollgate and davies because for 3-4 years they have been poor. If they had been good enough i'd suggest we wouldn't have bought 2 more centre half’s and 2 centre midfielders

Id sell Gordon and dcl to raise the cash as we nerd x2 forwards who can score and capable of playing 25+ games a season - i think we would get 40-50 million for them both (combined) which would allow us to do this.

Stevie Me sounds like he has an unsettled squad. No players in. Speaking publicly about Mings. Fallen out with Watkins
Bad end to the season last year - i can see him gone before Christmas.

We just got rid of Delph. Have Allan - fo we need snother 30+ player - especially our problems with FFP - surely we nerd players with some sell on value

Flip side of thst i suppose - lewis gibdon and Sambue cost 11m - played no games and left for nothing.
