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.

Ndidi - to EFC set out to find the least potent strikers in Europe before signing them.
We are very short of goals - here is my thought - sign some one who scores goals - he's got 4 in 35 games - is that a step up from Beto?

It's going to cost money but surely it's number one priority - otherwise we are just in for another boring season with no goals

Ali seems to have sorted his head out - if he stays fit I'm hoping he could be a surprise.


1.) 27 Jun 2024 08:34:58
Wilfred Ndidi is a Defensive Midfielder from Leicester on a free!

His stats for his position are actually quite good, he is available on a free and 27, he is a very good player, linked with higher level teams less than 18 months ago.

Think your confusing him.

We can't address all positions at once and I personally am happy with the direction we are moving and speed and timings on our deals.

Patience. We are at the start of a rebuild.

2.) 27 Jun 2024 08:39:50
Erm. Epic fail here.
Ndidi isn't a Striker so what is this rant all about? He's a DM. So a return of 4 goals from that position is very acceptable! Evidently Ndidi is not being brought in as a replacement for Beto.

3.) 27 Jun 2024 08:58:37
Just read on the click abit they've heard nothing of us being intrested in him, personally I think for a free bee, why wouldn't we be intrested, only 27 has pedigree surely it's a no brainer, but what do I no.

4.) 27 Jun 2024 09:01:40
Agree going to take a while but at last is beginning to happen, exciting about the new season coming up already, many more to be shipped out yet.

5.) 27 Jun 2024 10:01:51
I think he means Ndiaye.

6.) 27 Jun 2024 11:17:40
Indeedy, ?? Ndidi - Ndiaye.

7.) 27 Jun 2024 19:37:51
Just because we don’t have to pay a fee doesn’t mean he is coming cheap. Doubt his wage demands would match our ambition.

8.) 27 Jun 2024 19:45:20
Why so negative Harlex on all your replies? The club is trying to move forward and the vast majority of us Supporters are actually more positive about things, the lads not even thro door and trying to find with him already. Bit sad really!

9.) 27 Jun 2024 19:59:56
We do need someone who can stick it in the net though.

10.) 28 Jun 2024 09:41:00
Not negative just realistic. Free agents don’t come cheap, and at a time when pressure is on to reduce the wage bill I struggle to understand why we would blow a wad on another “freebie”.
And before you say we wouldn’t do that, we are paying Harrison 90k a week, so maybe we haven’t cut our cloth just yet.

11.) 28 Jun 2024 10:35:11
I get your concerns Harlex, but a "freebie" is clearly a cheaper alternative to throwing a big transfer at someone as well.

If they improve us then that should be the concern, we have shifted a few on high wages and we don't know what any potential signings salaries are, you would hope they have learnt their lesson as a club. I personally didn't want Harrison back as hoped we may have been able to attract somebody different, 90k is steep but no loan fee and can send back at anytime I believe. We will just need see where we are come end of window pal, we will like we are moving in the right direction to me and like the lot of the names we are linked to. All opinions pal.



22 Feb 2024 10:45:06
I'm in the Dyche out camp now - even if we stay up. Sorry but it's so boring the brand of football - plus someone has to hold there hands up to ever thought Beto was PL standard.


1.) 22 Feb 2024 11:31:08
It’s always been about staying up this season, especially after the deduction. It would be very difficult to get excited about another season under SD, although I think that most fans can acknowledge that the tools he has to work with are not sharp enough.
Be interesting to see if Graham Potter could be tempted to come in.

2.) 22 Feb 2024 12:37:48
Don’t get the hype with Potter. Did ok at Brighton but they improved when he left. He didn’t do anything special at Chelsea and nothing since.

3.) 22 Feb 2024 12:58:46
I think before we get a new manager the whole club from youth up to the directors need to start with a more exciting way of playing so it runs through the club
It is an entertaining business after all and it’s anything but.
Maybe give Dyche a chance to do this - I think he’s a decent bloke but it’s utter tripe what’s being served up usually
Surely it’s not rocket science - play it fast out wide and get it in box - also Guaye should be told he’s fined a weeks wages if he attempts a shot from more than 8 yards.

4.) 22 Feb 2024 14:07:04
Dyche is gambling on a point a game to keep us up in my opinion.

5.) 22 Feb 2024 16:36:49
Dyche is stuck with 1 system. No plan B. Whenever we chance the game it's guaranteed he will put Beto on, but takes DCL off too. Maybe go all out and week formation? Play 3 at back. 4 midfield and have 3 up top like DCL, Beto, Dobbin/ Chermiti? At least go out for the win for final 20 mins or so. Give the crowd something to get behind and to cheer at, instead of same non working tactics with different non producing players. Dyche tactics are like a dead end job. Same, monotonous thing, day in, day out. Needs to change and sharpish. Otherwise it's same again next season. Last game was the 1st in a long long time that we out played the opposition, possession wise. Can almost guarantee that we will be back to 30% possession against Brighton though. And no one is even scared to play at Goodison anymore. Every team sees it as a good chance for 3 points. Needs to change and quick.

6.) 22 Feb 2024 18:44:46
Am in the stay with Dyche camp and let's see what happens with all the background noise once settles.

The guy is decent and for the here and now probably as good as we can hope for, the football of late certainly ain't been the best but do feel the off field is affecting this and he is trying to make us hard to beat to get the desired PTS to keep us afloat. Once the PTS issue is sorted regardless of which division we are in I'd like to see what he can do with the shackles off.

Don't forget without the -10 we would be 12th and maybe higher as dented us and I think we would all have been happy with that and where the majority of us felt would be a good solid season if finished in and around mid table.

7.) 22 Feb 2024 19:10:57
Just remember: when he did change it up and we went 4-4-2 we were rubbish. Same with 3-5-2.

8.) 22 Feb 2024 20:14:32
We’re rubbish whatever combination he uses, because we just hoof it down the pitch. Formation means nothing when you play like that.
Set piece Sean is what he should be called.

9.) 22 Feb 2024 20:57:46
Whilst we’ve struggled last 8 games you need to look at who we faced in those games.

Spurs twice, Man City twice and Villa once - all of these are top 6 teams and don’t think anyone would realistically have expected us to win any of those games.

It’s frustrating to draw with Fulham and palace but I don’t think it’s all doom and gloom and it’s way too early for calling for dyches head.

We managed to beat Brighton 5-1 last season playing some cracking football - we have the ability I just feel the run of games coupled with the ridiculous delay in finding out what’s happened with the appeal has gotten to everyone at the club including the fans.

10.) 22 Feb 2024 22:17:26
Yep good way I see it. 1 lost in 5. By rights should be 12th with our main goalscorer not scoring in 19 and our top goalscorer out whilst a backdrop of uncertainty and chaos.

11.) 23 Feb 2024 02:30:21
Dyche out. really?

Who do you think would want to manage us atm? Maybe Pep fancies a challenge or get Jurgen in once he leaves the reds.

We are a mess of a football club atm and nobody from the top tier of management will come anywhere near us.

If we get any points back and end up mid table, all the Dyche out camp will say he's done a great job.

12.) 23 Feb 2024 09:13:05
Not a massive Dyche fan, but would be pointless changing manager now. Regardless of how good or bad we play the decision on whether we stay up or not is not in or hands anymore.
Let's face it after the performance against Palace this team is not going to go on a winning run any time soon. So it's the deduction in points that will decide our fate.
We get relegated and we lose our best players, seen that happen often enough when other teams have gone down.
First time in sixty years my love for football has gone. Really couldn't care less anymore.



17 Feb 2024 23:14:39
Our frustrations are with the club being ran badly and the points deducted because of this. Think we should lay off Ed 02 who is only dealing with the facts and he's right.
It is a harsh penalty - hopefully be reduced but we knew we were heading for this for years.
Poor running by Moshri and Usminov the real owner leaving left us screwed.
We are in for a rough ride but I like to hope it gives us a chance to start playing local lads and looking at lower league for players which is what I'd prefer
But give Ed 02 a break - he's just telling us the truth which is hard to hear.


1.) 18 Feb 2024 08:57:09
There are ways of responding politely.

2.) 18 Feb 2024 09:14:20
I agree! I think about if you were having the conversation face to face!

3.) 18 Feb 2024 10:10:49
Good post Sobs mate we are all adults on here and Ed 002 says it as it says on the tin, time and time again posters are asking the same question which must be so frustrating especially when one or two try to get cute with him, we are all frustrated on here about the length of time this points deduction appeal is taking, but to quote an old saying, it comes to those who wait maybe good news is just around the corner we will soon know one way or the other.

4.) 18 Feb 2024 11:06:43
We all talk tosh at times and of course frustration comes into the equation. These guys give their services voluntarily and are seemingly well informed. I for one am grateful for their knowledge. I do however agree with Big Reg.

5.) 18 Feb 2024 19:10:21
Spot on Big Reg. Respect is a double edged sword.

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

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 -.

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.

DCL had one good season. No matter what system we play he’s had chances this season and can’t score.

He’s not the solution - neither is Beto

Unfortunately our midfield don’t chip in with goals either and we have no cash so get used to very boring low scoring games

We are creating chances and should have had a hat full last week.

Surely in any walk of life you get a longer contract as a result of your performance at work. He is no longer PL level and needs to either move down 1-2 leagues or see if any takers abroad.
Only exception to that with Deli is if he has got over his mental health problems which as a result improve his standard and only club will know that.
Think we still have a duty of care as he appears to be quite vulnerable.
