I take it we will be looking for competition/ backup for Pickford, are we looking to sign Olsen permanently or are there other targets like Gazzaniga who’s available on a free?

{Ed002's Note - Robin Olsen (G) the club want him to join when his loan expires.

1.) 01 Jun 2021 10:25:17
From what little I have seen from Olsen he is a decent keeper. Did reasonably well when deputising as Pickford was injured. When Pickford came back into the side he was much better than before the injury. More consistent rather than the erratic player he can be. Overall I would be happy for us to sign Olsen. Although there were media reports of him wanting to go after the break in incident.

Hi Ed seeming some rumours around Khvicha Kvaratskhelia have you heard any news around links or is this just paper talk?
Hopefully more suited to the prem than Bilyaletdinov if we are interested.

{Ed002's Note - Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (LW) Torino, Borussia Dortmund and Lokomotiv Moscow have spoken with Rubin Kazan who are not looking to sell at this time. Previously the player has been watched by Bayern Munich and his agent is hawking him around with Leeds showing some interest and his agent confirming approaches to, not from, Everton, Leicester and Newcastle.}

Thanks for insight as always.



29 Apr 2021 21:47:32
Hi Ed’s few rumours circulating that we are looking at moving for Merih Demiral as replacement for Mina if he moves on, have you heard any rumours?
Would make a great partnership with Godfrey.

{Ed002's Note - Merih Demiral (CB) His agent wants a foothold in the English market and has offered the player to Liverpool and Spurs - Juventus want €50M which seems too high. Atletico Madrid were surprised at the asking price and the player wants Champions League football which may end the interest of the likes of Everton and Spurs.}

1.) 29 Apr 2021 22:38:46
Thanks for the insight Ed.

2.) 30 Apr 2021 17:18:14
You forgot liverpool no champion's league as it stands 😎.

Links resurfacing the last few days back in Italy that we made an offer for Rabiot in the summer
Could there be any substance to this, says Juve are looking to raise funds for Pirlo to freshen up the squad
Or is this just likely to be a link because of history with Carlo?

{Ed002's Note - He may well have been considered as an option to Allan who did sign. I think it would be difficult to sign him without CL football and hard to see where he would fit in.}

1.) 16 Feb 2021 12:17:17
Ed002, I've seen a few rumours that he was a bit of a bad apple when he was at PSG and that his agent (think it used to be his mum) was always putting her nose in. Is there any substance to those rumours do you know and has he behaved himself since he's been at Juve? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - His mother remains his agent. CA gave him his break as a teenager and hopeful he is over the dumb stuff and grief. Wages would be an issue for Everton and persuading him to drop out of the Champions League might be tough - but Juventus want him moved on.}

2.) 16 Feb 2021 17:07:08
Cheers for the reply, ed002. I think there will be other teams in for him that can offer european football before we would even be considered. If we can't afford his wages then it looks as if he is only being linked due to his previous links with CA.

{Ed002's Note - He will be difficult to sell to all but a few well-off clubs, Italian or Turkish clubs because of the huge wages.}

Bolasie travelling to boro tomorrow to finally complete his move
He has received numerous offers. all to drive him there!

1.) 27 Jan 2021 22:34:59
good luck to him, another true professional like niasse has always supported the team and never bad mouthed us. shame his injury ruined his chances.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 22:44:35
If I got paid what they got in their time at the club, then I wouldn't be bad mouthing the club either.

3.) 28 Jan 2021 02:53:37
All the best to him. Those first days of his and Rom’s partnership were a joy to watch. Always a great attitude, even when nothing went right for him after the injury.

4.) 28 Jan 2021 12:16:59
Remember his good game away at Sunderland. Promised so much unfortunately Injury and desire or lack of got the better of him. can't forgive just watching him stroll around at the end of Fat Sams days. In fairness he wasn't alone.

5.) 28 Jan 2021 16:35:32
Cookie, he was probably sha. ed out after those jolly ups in Dubai that Sam had a penchant for after bad results 🥳 😴.

1 year extension for Seamus until June 2023 👏🏼.

1.) 28 Jul 2021 19:46:46
Well done Seamus, just hope this doesn’t mean we are not looking at getting another right back in though.



28 Jul 2021 09:25:01
Looks like Moyes may be our saviour as he wants to sign Phil Jones 🙏.

1.) 28 Jul 2021 12:54:39
Please be true 👍.



01 Jul 2021 17:10:57
In other news we are to take control of BMD later this month and start work immediately.



19 Jun 2021 14:28:43
Purely a hypothetical question but if you get new investment/ ownership does allow some sort of holiday from FFP and financial injection into the playing personnel, isn’t there some rules around this?
And if that is the case are their specific criteria
For example, if Usmanov invested like a lot of reports like to push stories about, if he became a large shareholder does that fit the criteria, I am sure there was something like that when Moshiri first invested

If Ed could share his knowledge.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs can notify UEFA of a one off investment by a new owner but Everton does not have a new ownwer.}

1.) 19 Jun 2021 16:05:42
This is true but I was curious with the continual talk around Usmanov and potential investment
And also how it would effect other clubs like Arsenal if they managed to replace the current owners.

2.) 19 Jun 2021 16:15:28
Naive to believe Usmanov has no money in Everton, Moshri's pockets are nowhere near as deep. Silence is golden.

3.) 19 Jun 2021 19:45:37
Not being naive but if it was more vocal could would we then have money to plough in with this rule and avoid being hit with FFP breaches, it’s hindering us currently to drastically improve the team.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs have to make their own way and be self sufficient.}

4.) 19 Jun 2021 20:29:33
The Hindrance is all our own fault.



17 Jun 2021 13:17:15
Opening fixtures don’t look that bad but then I have thought that before 🤦🏻‍♂️.

I would take Spence, think he could be a great player.

Isn’t he paid something like £100k a week as well?
Those sort of wages would be better spent elsewhere.

Better option on the bench than two goalkeepers like we often saw last season.

I’d be happy with 3 to 4 years, downside is no resale value but could be well worth the money being more solid at the back
And in 3 to 4 years we could see Branthwaite and Godfrey.

I’m not saying we should go for him but a player can flop and then come good in a different set up, team or league or just under a different manager
Memphis Depay, flop at United been on fire since
Vlasic has look good since we got rid of him
Granted it goes the other way as well.

There are some differing factors to that price though, last year of his contract pushes down the fee for him but yes we did overpay for both of those in hindsight.

Looks decent when playing for Nigeria, 9 goals in 45 games isn’t a bad return
15 in 149 apps at Arsenal and just 4 from 65 for us, is quite a contrast and not a good return.

I could understand paying the shortfall, but like the Koeman debacle where we made up the rest of his salary for the period he had left on the top of his Netherlands little salary
But I don’t think he should get double bubble.

Very true Worcester, there are all these apps and sites that require you to be of an age but nothing stops you plugging in a false age
Hopefully the authorities can conduct a fair investigation without being swayed by the “trial by media” and then the appropriate action can be taken.

Maybe Rafa’s fitness coach can keep him fit, let’s stay positive.
