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.

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.

Toffee ace

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


1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:16:57
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.}


1.) 06 Dec 2017 15:25:52
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.

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.
Coyb.

{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

Ed, is one of Everton’s expensive advisors Kia Joorabchian?

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - No. Kia's involvement with Everton was involved in offering a player at one time. I am not aware of any other involvement than that and he is certainly not providing advice.}

Ok. Thanks Ed.

Moyes or Hughes. I cannot think of anyone I would want less. 2 has beens who have shown Everton disrespect in the past. It worries me that the board are torn on these and not unanimously against them both. This is bad.

Toffee ace

1.) 26 Nov 2019 09:13:38
Hughes is a definite no for me. With Moyes it depends on the contract length if it is to the end of the season with an option if he get into the top 5 then I wouldn't mind. Personally I think Moyes may have left the club with the managements blessing. I knew Moyes was waiting for the Man U job a couple of seasons before he actually left, not sure about the board but he seemed pretty open that, that was his dream job so can only presume the board did. It was very unfortunate that he left the way he did. I think its the fact that he came back for too many players. I think if he had just gone for Felli most would have been okayish with that but he crossed the line with Bainesy.


2.) 26 Nov 2019 12:45:50
Moyes did well, all things considered, in his spell with us, we can't deny that. The problem that I have, and one that is shared by a lot of fans, is the total lack of respect shown to us as a club when he tried to sign Baines. In many ways, his words were much worse than when Rafa referred to us as a small club, at least Rafa was in charge of our rivals at the time after we had thwarted their expectation of 3 points against us. His was a comment made immediately after the game when passion and frustration ran high. Moyes made his comments in spite, imo, as he couldn't get the player he wanted.
None of the names fill me with any sense of hope.


3.) 26 Nov 2019 15:15:51
Totally agree on Moyes re Baines BP on a positive note Silva hasn't been sacked yet!

{Ed025's Note - thats not very positive to me sa mate..


4.) 26 Nov 2019 19:16:01
sa90, I can't see the positives in that either mate!


 

 

09 Nov 2019 19:24:22
Three points off top six. Just saying.

Toffee ace

1.) 09 Nov 2019 21:09:42
6 points off bottom 3. Need the consistency (obvious statement) . Look at Leicester, apart from Vardy, are they better player for player than us. Point being a coach willing to adapt and be dynamic in a live game is the one that usually wins. At our level (yes we are equal to Leicester) , Rodgers has it, Benitez (China I know) has it, the Wolves Manager (apologies forgot name) , has it. About time now, a Season and 12 games in that Silva starts showing me and other doubters how wrong we are and how right the Club were to hire him.

{Ed025's Note - if you think vardy is the only player that is better than ours your kidding yourself BCT, schmeichel, perez, maddison, tielmans, chilwell, barnes and ndidi get in our team all day long mate, they also play as a team and work tirelessly for 90 minutes...thats why they are 2nd and we are 13th my friend..


2.) 09 Nov 2019 22:24:32
I'd also add Soyuncu to that list ed.

{Ed025's Note - i like what i have seen of him bunkbeds but thats not enough to make an informed judgement mate, and to be fair johnny evans alongside him has done very well too..


3.) 09 Nov 2019 22:42:32
And we are 3 points off 5th.


4.) 10 Nov 2019 08:29:48
I understand that Ed, point being that with better cohesion (togetherness) , this Squad would not could, be uo there. I am convinced (only go to home games) that with our supporters (away support is phenominal) and better (some) coaching and man-management we can be consistently top 7 once again and hopefully higher. Enjoyed that yesterday, not often have said that last 18 months.

{Ed025's Note - with a bit more luck BCT we could be 5th (bloody VAR), but i still think we need to be more consistent and we are still crying out for a striker mate..


5.) 11 Nov 2019 08:00:57
I agree with you on this Ed025 player for player they are better than Everton, their recruitment policy is far better, and look at some of the players they have sold on, it will take us a long time before we get to their level.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately your right uran..


6.) 11 Nov 2019 09:21:54
i wouldn't say player for player they're better, but the majority are streets ahead yes.

There’s nothing more annoying than Darmesh and Karvel (spelling) . The two guys in their transfer program. Yet I have to watch them because in a weird way they both annoy and entertain.

We’ve got Delph who can play at the back. He just needs to man up with his constant injuries.

I can’t see us going for Zaha. He’s too expensive and ultimately we need to sell. If we do raise funds it will probably go on a centre back.

Various tabloids have photos of him being collected from the airport by EFC staff. I think the Daily Mail is one of them.

So Wilson comes looking for a pen rather than taking up a dangerous position in the box whereas DCL takes up dangerous positions and gets his goals honestly. I’m pretty sure one of the two will score 20 plus goals this season and get picked for his country. And that man won’t be Wilson. You reap what you sow.

Opinions yes. But to hope that Ancelotti comes on hear to learn a few things from those who post. Do me a favour. I’m just not here to dig him out the minute we lose a few. We can’t expect to win them all. Or even win most of our games. Our squad isn’t good enough.

But to be fair to the other parts of your post, as I was unfair to focus on the one thing I disagreed with, I am also at a loss as to what Delph brought all game. It seemed every pass he made was behind the man or couldn’t clear the first man when he crossed. I actually said to my son that Delph reminds me of the feeling you get when you lose. Not a nice feeling at all, and yeah we lost again.

I sincerely hope that Carlo comes nowhere near this site for tips on team selection or tactics. This man has won as much silverware as our entire clubs history. Just because I know where my kitchen is doesn’t make me a qualified architect. We know as much as we know about football. But if we could just remind ourselves that on Monday we will be at work doing what we do for a living. And unless that’s coaching at Premier League level than let’s just trust the man who has proven in the past and present that he’s really quite good at what he does.

This will take time. No doubt about that. Carlo is a manager that excels when he has quality to work with. I can see us being a top side in a couple of years. As long as recruitment is correct. Time now to be patient and supportive of the team. Even when we look poor. Recruitment this summer was excellent so plenty to be optimistic about, despite the last two performances.
