We seem to be getting linked with the entire Leeds' squad. Probably just lazy journalism with the latest being Rodrigo. Ok so he scored a bit but he's 32 and on £100kp/ w. Surely surely this cannot be true. Have we learnt nothing?


1.) 24 Jun 2023 19:42:58
Rodrigo and gnoto being heavily linked today.

If Rodrigo does have a £3m release fee then may not be a bad purchase.

Gnoto looks like could be a very good player but think I saw something that said he would cost £20m+ so can’t see that one happening unless we move someone on.

2.) 24 Jun 2023 19:58:13
Rodrigo would be good at that price mate.

3.) 24 Jun 2023 20:21:19
Didn’t realise it was £3m. That’s good money actually.

4.) 25 Jun 2023 10:04:32
So pay a 32 year old 100k a week, with absolutely no sell on value? Haven’t we been down this road before?

5.) 25 Jun 2023 12:57:48
This was my original point. £3m isn’t excessive but £100k p/ w for a 32 year old looking for a final payday?

6.) 25 Jun 2023 15:41:21
Agree it seems crazy wages, especially at his age. Is that what he's on now? Surely other clubs won't offer that? But even if it was that. if you said 2 year contract at 100k a week with a £3m purchase that'd mean it's cost us £13m for the whole deal - not terrible value!

7.) 26 Jun 2023 07:38:04
If 13m is the eventual final figure, and he get us double figures each season, then that wouldn't be a waste of money. There are better players out there but we are in a pretty rubbish situation at the moment, so just get us someone who gets us goals. We miss/ need that so much.

8.) 28 Jun 2023 11:49:27
No sell on value? look at our history with players with sell on value, Siggy, Mina, Bolasie, Besic. think he'd be a good budget signing but more of a wide forward than a CF. Don't think Gnoto is worth it and he's def a winger.



05 Jun 2023 19:23:44
Hi Eds, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles being available on a free, do you think Everton will make an offer for him?


{Ed002's Note - Ainsley Maitland-Niles (RM/CM/RWB) Out of contract with agent offering him around - may look to the continent with no EPL interest right now. Perhaps a promoted side?}

1.) 05 Jun 2023 20:22:06
Cheers Ed.

27 Aug 2022 10:15:19
Hi Eds, is there any news on more outgoings? Still think we could do with shifting a few more.


{Ed002's Note - Possibly:
Allan (CM/DM) The player has shared a desire to return to Italy and Everton are looking at options for midfield and have a couple of players in mind. The sale of Allen would depend on the price which is falling away and clubs accepting a player whois 31. It might be tough to find a buyer. Given he is in to his 30s he will become harder to sell. Being offered around - Roma and Lazio could be interested.
Andre Gomes (CM) Roma or Sevilla may offer a viable way out of Everton for Gomes. Mr Mourinho is a long-time admirer. Everton are open to a sale but neither side would want to pay too much. Rome had offered Gonzalo Villa and some cash but that went nowhere. It will be a case of finding an acceptable offer.
Anthony Gordon (LW) Everton will resist a sale but will see interest from Spurs and Newcastle. On a long list of wide options for Chelsea as he is liked by the coach. Agent could offer him to Crystal Palace as a long term Zaha replacement - he has a very good relationship with them but CP will look to extend his contract.}

1.) 27 Aug 2022 11:09:16
Cheers Ed. Hopefully we can get Gomes and Allan off the wage bill and get some cash too!

2.) 27 Aug 2022 11:59:58
Offer Gordon to Palace? Is he that keen to get out?

3.) 27 Aug 2022 17:05:51
Isn't any offer and acceptable offer for gomes? I'd let him go on a free. I'd probably let Allan go on a free as well or an extremely low offer. Better than paying his wages for another season him playing a bit part then leaving on a free anyway.

4.) 27 Aug 2022 18:17:35
I think Alan offers grit and bite when we need to be more feisty. Our record is sign someone then they get injured. Gomez JGB offered nothing. Keep Alan unless we get a few quid proper. Saying that Alan must have had a falling out with Frank. He's fit? Davies getting all the game time he's much much better than Davies.



29 Dec 2020 12:26:10
Diego Costa on a free? Got to be worth a punt hasn't it? Just what we need in Jan.


1.) 29 Dec 2020 12:41:14
Diego Costa and Ancelotti are reported to have a good relationship- he wanted him at Napoli. Assuming he’s fit, he would seem to be an ideal short term solution to cover for Dom. Why not!

2.) 29 Dec 2020 17:08:36
Short 6 month contract yup yup, past his best of course, but good back up and prob get few goals. if fit of course. Plus Dom could learn a few more of the dark arts off him 👍.

3.) 29 Dec 2020 17:16:27
Because he’s past his best and we don’t need another past their best prima donna on the books (remember Gascoigne, Ginola, etc)

4.) 29 Dec 2020 17:21:44
To me he is a rotten apple. I wouldn’t want someone like that at the club.
I rate him as a player but causes trouble.

5.) 29 Dec 2020 23:22:20
He's a striker that gets under everybody's skin. Not saying it's right but it works.

RIP Bill. 78 is no age. Thoughts go out to your friends and family.




27 Sep 2023 19:00:48
Interesting team. Keane aside, I quite like it. I like that he's trying something new at least with his formation. However it does show or lack of depth at centre back.


{Ed025's Note - i just hope we dont lose momentum with the changes Swinners, winning can be a habit and a habit i want us to have mate..

1.) 27 Sep 2023 19:07:38
3421 interesting formation and villa are playing a strong team aswell.

2.) 27 Sep 2023 19:45:00
Hopefully we can see what onana and garner can do playing in the favoured position and danjuma, I like that we have Harrison, think he's going to be very very important to us this season, just hope he stays fit.

3.) 27 Sep 2023 19:46:52
Opposite for me. I would no way have risked DCL or Tarks or Branths or Pickford.

We have the two most important league games of the season next. Which our very existence depends.

Why risk injuries or cards? Hope am proved wrong.

4.) 27 Sep 2023 19:48:52
Might be a goal in Keane tonight. Hopefully not an own goal lol.

5.) 27 Sep 2023 21:31:25
And you were right nick.



21 Aug 2023 22:52:07
Just read the news about Amadou Onana being targeted by racist abuse online. How absolutely dreadful.

I often tell my children how far we've come as a society and that things were much worse in the 80s when I was a boy, but I am increasingly of them opinion that this isn't true and that nothing has changed (my daughter is 17 and often tells of the awful sexist abuse she gets at school) . It's all so very depressing and I am glad Onana has called this out.


1.) 21 Aug 2023 23:20:20
As long as there are parents who discriminate, there’ll be kids who discriminate unfortunately. There has been progress, but that doesn’t make these incidents any less impactful for those involved.

2.) 21 Aug 2023 23:20:34
Majority of my working life and indeed growing up was outside of the UK, some Countries the abuse toward Women and indeed toward people different was terrible. On return to this Country majority was spent in London (multi cultural) and the abuse there was bad. I think modern day UK (Worldwide) is not necessarily worse but more media wide ranging and supposedly advanced. As a result the competition for 'Headlines' can reach desperate levels.

3.) 22 Aug 2023 09:38:46
There are too many racist idiots with bigoted thinking given a platform on TV, the Internet, get featured on the news etc that normalise controversy and influence others into thinking they have freedom to say what they like and everyone wants to hear their messed up opinions too. The Premier League / Fifa have the power to make changes to punish and in turn eradicate racism and other unacceptable thinking but are too cowardly to do so. Players taking a knee is not enough and becomes tokenistic, when it will be more effective if clubs are punished harshly with eg points deductions. That will soon shut the dongheads up.

4.) 22 Aug 2023 10:35:34
Unfortunately this is a society problem and until society accepts this and deals with it accordingly it will carry on. We all have to take responsibility to eradicate this problem and the sooner the better we should make sure these people have no place in our society.

5.) 22 Aug 2023 10:42:30
Absolutely disgraceful call them out every time no place in today's football this behaviour.

6.) 22 Aug 2023 11:03:40
I saw it reported on the BBC and couldn’t believe it. Just stupid idiots being stupid idiots. It really hacks me off that people behave like this. I’ve worked with kids for many years and agree that the prejudices of the parents is a major root of it all. What were they thinking? How is making comments like that helpful or ending well in any circumstance?

You can be annoyed with the team and how they played but that sort of behaviour is outright disgraceful. I’ll add to Steve’s comment and say there is no place in society for this behaviour.

7.) 22 Aug 2023 11:43:50
Agree with jbtoffee, while parents continue to discriminate and do not create the right environment for their children this will continue.

There is generally a lack of any respect for elders, police, women and teachers in todays Society.

Unfortunately I do not have the answers, wish I did.

Barkley has signed for Luton. Happy days.


1.) 09 Aug 2023 16:59:44
And Maguire off to west ham, could be our best day of the window?.



14 Jul 2023 17:56:35
Not the best first half, same old problems, toothless up front, Godfrey exposed at left back. Positives though, Warrington looks a really good player - upgrade on Tom and McNeil has been very good, carried on where he left off last season.


1.) 14 Jul 2023 18:20:09
Good strike from Kouyate.

2.) 14 Jul 2023 19:01:39
Huge gulf between the youngsters and the regular first team players.
The odd little cameo frame m some but clearly we need some senior reinforcements, and quickly.
At least we won ?.

3.) 14 Jul 2023 21:07:43
not sure about that mate i thought warrington was very poor lost the ball on multiple occasions and made some unnecessary fouls which would prove costly against tougher opposition. kouyate looks decent though hopefully he kicks on.

Brighton are such a well run club, it’s embarrassing how awful we’ve been in comparison.

Totally agree Ed.

We can’t just think that because we’ve got new owners we can start throwing money around again. Years of signing players with no sell on value, on massive contracts has crippled us.

We’ve got to look to sign younger players who should, given the right amount of time and coaching, become sellable assets. Branwaithe and Onana are perfect examples of this. We will probably lose them both next Summer, but (if we are still in the Prem) we should hope to get £50m for them each maybe more; in Branthwaite’s case, that’s pure profit. We can then look to reinvest that.

The green shoots are there. I reckon we should be in a far better place after the next two transfer windows (if 777 don’t bankrupt us) .


{Ed002's Note - How would 777 bankrupt Everton?}

Just shows how bad our recruitment has been, but also our team selections. He’s struggling in the Championship, early days, I get that, but clearly no where near Premier League level.

Only a year left on his contract as well and he was signed for peanuts so the majority of that transfer can go down as profit on the balcone sheet. It’s a long road half but every little helps.

I have actually got mates who support other clubs moaning that it should be more because the three promoted teams are so crap. Therefore it won’t be a meaningful deduction, as we cheated to stay up for two years in a row that’s not fair…. good grief.

Cheers Ed. There certainly aren’t any easy games and hopefully we learn from it and don’t make the same mistake again. (Just a shame an experienced manager and experienced players made it in the first place) .


{Ed025's Note - Sean is still learning about his players Swinners, and i think they are still learning about him..

Evening Ed. Do you think Dyche underestimated Luton then? I can’t imagine many teams where he’d adopt that tactic.


{Ed025's Note - i think he, or maybe the players did Swinners, before they played us they were woeful and were being touted as the automatic relegation favourites, we slipped up big time and looked very loose at the back mate, there are no easy games in this league..
