Geuye is in France having a medical today if reports are true. So expect to see some fast movement for his replacement.

Ed, do you think Chelsea would do business on a permanent Zouma deal, or are they just loaning him until the time is right to use him?

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - At the moment it is a straight loan and given they are in the process of making changes at CB by next season he would likely end up as cover. If he were to ask to leave and decide on Everton as his next destination, then Everton need to make a proposal to Chelsea about buying him at the end of his loan in the summer. If the player wants to leave and the proposed deal satisfies all parties, then it may be an option - but there is some interest from elsewhere.}

Great info. Thanks Ed002.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 21:43:43
Pity about interest from elsewhere but I have to say not surprising. I knew the lad was a good player having watched him and then for us. I particularly like his runs out of defence. Seems to me our loans (apart from Digne) are were our best business.



07 Aug 2018 13:04:38
Ed002, you mentioned yesterday that Chelsea had pulled out of pursuing Bernard because he was a bit light weight for the league. Reports today are saying they could still come back in. Do you know if there is any truth to these reports? Or has their stance not changed.

{Ed002's Note - I explained what I know.}

Lightweight? Never understood this term. If that’s the case surely when the likes of Silva and Coutinho come to the Prem they were also “lightweight”? Players adapt.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 15:20:23
I agree BitterBlue. Was it Joninhio who played for Middlesbrough years ago who was about 6 stone soaking wet? There are plenty of examples of small players that made it in the premier league.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 17:07:30
They get more protection these days too. It’s more whether they can adapt to the culture and the climate - living in Ukraine should mean Liverpool will be cosmopolitan by comparison.

Ed, Do we get anything from the Deulofeu sale from Barcelona to Watford? Not sure if we had a sell on clause.

Toffee ace

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe so.}

1.) 11 Jun 2018 17:35:15
Thanks Ed.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 20:52:37
We DO indeed get something from Deulofeu's sale. It was in the original agreement that should Barcelona buy him back he had to be in the 1st team squad for a year. If he was subsequently sold AFTER that season Everton receive a percentage of the sell on fee. That was from Martinez at the time of the initial deal.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 01:41:45
We get to laugh at Watford.

Question for Ed 002. You mentioned that SA and CS were the choice of Walsh, so he's had his way on that one. Has this caused a shift in transfer priority as we've been led to believe from Koemans time that we needed a striker and a left sided defender? And do you know of any players in particular that we are pursuing as all we seem to see are random names in the media.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - It won't change anything - the club need to get out of where they are now. January may well see Sandro Ramirez return to Spain with Valencia or Espanyol and could see Ross Barkley depart as well. The club are looking at trying to get a deal for Theo Walcott (F) - he is wanted by Sam Allardyce and his time at Arsenal is drawing to a close as he is doing no more than stagnating now, so it makes sense. Whether it will to him or not I don't know. Richmond Boakye (S) is a player Walsh is keen on and I assume he would have discussed him with SA by now - so an approach is not out of the question. Ezri Konsa (CB) is a youngster who thinks he can walk in to any EPL first team - we will see if Everton maintain that interest or if SA would prefer a more humble addition. Everton will be looking for a new lift back and if they want a slight risk then I expect Luke Shaw will be available. Steve Walsh had sent a scout to watch Marcel Halstenberg but it is hard to see him being available in January nor being interested in a move to a club without Champions League prospects. Sam Allardyce will no doubt have some ideas as well.}

Great reply ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

2.) 06 Dec 2017 15:40:56
Thank you Ed002. Interesting read.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 15:45:02
Would Sandro be a loan or permanent to your knowledge, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - They would look for a loan to buy I would think.}

4.) 06 Dec 2017 15:50:07
hi ed what are the chances of Shaw on a loan? I suspect ManU would want to get a permanent transfer if possible just wondering if a loan with reasonably fee would be considered.

{Ed002's Note - They will look to sell if they can - I think a loan less likely. There will be flurry of left-backs moving in the coming months and they won't want to end up stuck.}

5.) 06 Dec 2017 16:39:50
Could you see mirallas leave ed? Cheers mate.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect in the summer.}

6.) 06 Dec 2017 18:05:00
Wow. Cracking info Ed 002. Much appreciated.

7.) 06 Dec 2017 19:02:34
Fantastic reply ed, could you see Schneiderlin or Klassen leaving too in January or the summer? Seem neither Klassen or Sandro are rated highly at the club.

{Ed002's Note - The summer would be more likely.}

8.) 06 Dec 2017 20:06:09
Thanks for the reply ed.

{Ed002's Note - you are welcome.}

9.) 06 Dec 2017 21:08:06
Hi ed I never heard of richmond boakye is this lad any good seen YouTube videos of him but they can make average players look world beaters.

{Ed002's Note - a lot of clubs have taken a look but nobody is biting which may say a bit.}

10.) 07 Dec 2017 07:25:40
Boakye could be an amazing signing if he can adapt to the Premier League, which is always the million dollar question!
Could be a pacy combination up front with Bolasie which definitely wouldn’t allow teams to settle when we break!

Let’s see what happens.

11.) 08 Dec 2017 07:51:36
Think we need to see what will be. My immediate concern is Sunday and the fear we may need to wait a while for another 3 bus's.

What are your long term plans?



05 Mar 2021 09:47:09
Very strong at the back at the moment. I can’t see a better pairing at centre back than Keane and Godfrey. With Digne and a good right back acquisition in the summer (Aarons maybe) that would be an excellent back 4. Pickford improving lately and Ancelotti identifying the need for him to be calm I can see him becoming a better keeper for us, although I’m sure not everyone would be happy with that 😄.
If the saying that strikers win you games but defences win you titles is true then we can be very optimistic of success under CA with this set up.

Toffee ace

1.) 05 Mar 2021 10:40:35
Would agree with that however the same can’t be said about Holgate, he needs to tighten his game up too many mistakes.

2.) 05 Mar 2021 12:47:37
I agree the defence is looking a formidable force and dare I say it, foundations are being laid here for something special.
In all the years posting not just on this site but everywhere I have never typed a sentence about EFC as hopeful as that before . because there is usually a caveat or 2 for cautionary reasons, maybe it's the Carlo factor mixed with Duncan and another hero Mr Moshiri.

3.) 05 Mar 2021 12:49:24
Yea get a new rb and the back 4 looks in great shape! Keane has been largely outstanding, so absolutely not trying to rush him off, but think Branthwaite looks a massive talent. Think it's exciting to think that him and Godfrey could be our centre back partnership in 2 or 3 years time and then for years to come!

4.) 05 Mar 2021 13:35:56
Agree with all the above about the defence but I think the midfield hase been very sloppy at times in giving away too many 2-5 yard passes. Hopefully its just a blip and gets sorted soon.

5.) 05 Mar 2021 20:58:56
Holgate looked great last season but after injuries it takes time to get back to full fitness and form. If anything I think he looks a little bit cocky and needs to realise he still needs to put in the graft he did to break into our starting 11. In the Don I trust! No competition at present because Mina out, but Carlo Magnifico will develop him into a great CB!

6.) 05 Mar 2021 21:09:58
I agree GB, he makes me nervous watching when he’s on the ball. Couple of easy passes going astray too. Good player for us though but not an automatic choice in a back 4 for me maybe next season if we can manage to strengthen RB in the summer.



11 Feb 2021 08:30:34
My position on Tom Davies is this, he’s playing well right now and getting credit which he fully deserves. A month ago he was getting stick from most of us which he also fully deserved. This is all normal and justified. As long as the criticism or praise is fair then long may opinions continue. As well as his good form.

You’re only as good as your next 90 minutes and I hope his next 90 will be as good as his last. Well done Tom. Find a way of putting in regular performances like that at your young age and the sky’s the limit for you.

Toffee ace

1.) 11 Feb 2021 09:44:25
I hope this isn't the 'kiss of death' for Tom, nevertheless his recent performances are maybe indicative of him putting his past well behind him.
I always felt he was suffering from 'stage fright' or the like and now it appears his confidence is being boosted by really good matches.
Any way my fingers are crossed for the lad.

2.) 11 Feb 2021 10:56:31
Maybe Carlo has told him to just go out and enjoy playing football, and playing him in his best position. Were other managers we have had used him to fill gaps in midfield without allowing him to develop in one position.
If you think about it for a young player he has had a lot of managers.

3.) 11 Feb 2021 12:01:02
He’s had 2 good games. We all want him to be a star. Let’s be honest though - he has been poor most the season - his passing has not been great.
I suppose he has seen Decore and Alan come in - probs felt the pressure.
I really hope he’s turned a corner and continues - if he has then we can save 30-40 million over the next few years - he could becEFC player for 10 years to come.



11 Sep 2020 08:24:05
Just thought I share my hopes and expectations for the season.

The window is not shut yet, but I'd be surprised if we did any more permanent signings. We can't get every position strengthened but if these signings work out then that's the midfield sorted all three areas of defence energy and creativity. It would appear that we have the tools to control the midfield and then the game too.

We need more goals than last season and I believe with the business we have done we will not only see our front two get more but also a larger contribution from the midfield too which was severely lacking last season.

Ultimately I want us to be competitive. We have strengthened to be exactly that so that's what I'm looking for most. I don't want to come away from matches lamenting a lacklustre display. Accusing some of our players for not trying. Win lose or draw I can handle it if they gave their all.

It all starts for us on Sunday and whilst we might not see all our new signings against Spurs, I would like to see 100% from every player who is worried for their place in the side.

Spurs away is a tough game. So COYB let's start with a fight and build from there.

Toffee ace

{Ed025's Note - great little piece there ace, exactly how i, and i suspect the vast majority of supporters feel, we dont ask for much but do expect passion commitment and pride in the wearing of the shirt and that should be a given, unfortunately this has not always been the case in recent times but i believe carlo and the calibre of signings we have made will change that mate COYB..

1.) 11 Sep 2020 08:48:18
Exactly that, just read some comments from Carlo that these players signed because they WANTED to come here, didn't need convincing or needing think about it. that extra quality and passion should definitely drive us forward and improve the team. All 3 new signings won't be playing every games so I really hope to see better from the likes of Iwobi, Davies, Bernard, Walcott and Sigi and Gomes playing alongside the new boys. Unless we sell them of course ha ha.

2.) 11 Sep 2020 09:59:33
Spot on toffee an ed
Av always said it just some passion and fight and they have us fans happy. Some really good signings but its Gona take more windows for carlo to get the club wer he Wants it we have to be patient.

{Ed025's Note - we dont do patience very well callum, but if we can see passion and hard work even if we lose our supporters can be very forgiving, what carlo and brands have brought in is going a long way to addressing that so im very happy mate..

3.) 11 Sep 2020 15:32:28

I’d like to see a sell on clause in this one. He’s a class player who is going to get better and very quickly outgrow Villa who I believe will struggle to replicate CL football again. Therefore he’ll get another move so it’d be nice to get some money from that possibility.

Man U are just desperate for our players. Always have been. A team in the shadows of their neighbours and completely in denial of their decaying image as a force in the Premier League.

Completely agree Brassington. Losing just one of these would have a negative affect on the squad. All three will send us down for sure. Branthwaite is not a conversation as he’s got about 3 or 4 years left on his contract so if we don’t need the money then unplug the phone and take the paper out of the fax machine. DCL needs London fashion week off and he’ll be happy to sign and tell Pickford that only Newcastle have shown interest. All three then stay and we win the league.

Seriously, and I have no problem with SD, but there is no way on earth that the new owners will be happy with the brand of football that has been used past 18 months going into the 25/ 26 season in BMD. They will want a show that befits the new stadium and will be planning in advance to provide that.

From Goodison to BMD is a huge keep of elevation. The Manager needs to elevate his style of football or be left behind.

Toffee ace

{Ed025's Note - my take is that SD will be given the new talent and given until christmas to see how things go, if things improve results wise and entertainment wise then he may well be kept on, if not i fear he will be gone, its a tough call for the new owners and as grateful as we all are to Sean for keeping us up i think we all agree that the standard of football was really poor, new and better players may change that of course and thats why i think he may be given a shot, but the new owners have an investment to protect and getting to BMD unscathed will be a massive part of that with all the lucrative things that brings...its a massive call..

Pickford will get credit for his excellent display. It’ll be Kanes turn. And maybe Kyle Walkers too. Sadly though Pickford is just not a popular choice. He’s a bit mad, a bit short and a bit anti-elite to be a popular choice.

Basically he gets criticised for his temperament his size and his clubs position in the league. And all this instead of talking up his outstanding saves, his world class distribution and his dominance in his area.

Pickford is class, everyone knows it but the football elitist snobs can’t accept it.

There’s nothing to say we still won’t lose Branthwait to United as the asking price represents a huge profit which will be difficult to turn down. We have debts to manage and a stadium to complete. So for the people who are involved in these areas this might be an opportunity not to be passed on.

I dearly want him to stay but we’ve been here before so should be realistic.

I get why many don’t rate Martinez but it’s a fact that he delivered the highest points total in the PL for an Everton manager, and before we say that was Moyes squad, I’d have to ask so why didn’t Moyes?

From the midfield up we were scintillating but at the back we were naive. That was our problem, but I can’t help thinking if he had someone strong who was defensive minded in the coaching staff to help balance the tactics out it may have been very different.

Football is about opinions of course, but we shouldn’t forget how good we were under him in that record breaking season for us.

Should never have sacked Martinez. Just supported him with a good defensive coach to help balance the team. Because going forward we were breathtaking.
