Apparently Nathan Broadhead getting a new 2 year deal. Nothing against the lad at all (I've barely seen him play which says a lot) but he's 23 years old and has barely had a sniff of first team football even though we haven't been able to fill the bench half the time. I might be being harsh but just feels like a repeat of likes of Garbutt and Pennington that we end up paying to their mid to late 20s and they never do anything.


1.) 27 May 2021 02:48:41
Maybe we’ll sell him this summer or maybe the club thing he’ll be a late bloomer.

2.) 27 May 2021 07:16:53
Yea maybe mate - And to be fair look where Jamie Vardy was at 23. Guess it's just the history with the others I mentioned that made me think are we just too desperate for someone to come through that we hang onto players that aren't really good enough!

3.) 27 May 2021 09:04:19
We have a squad of players that don't fit in with CAs idea of how we should be playing. I presume he see's Broadhead as a player with the attributes that he requires and hope he will improve, therefore wants him to stay. Whether or not he will make it only time will tell. He may just end up a squad player on the bench and then be sold. It may also help our financial situation as we may be able to go for players that will make a difference to the 1st team rather than compromise and bring in a 1st team and a squad player in the same position with limited funds. I personally think we have been over paying for players that are in effect squad players not 1st team starters and not enough due diligence was done with some of our signings hence the considerable amount of money spent for minimal return. That and the numerous management changes.

4.) 27 May 2021 21:41:50
I absolutely think we should fill the bench with the likes of Broadhead, Gordon, Onyango, Nkyoiyou rather than the useless dross we currently deploy.

Replace the 7 or 8 squad players and salaries with 3 or 4 absolute quality first team starters. Use youth to fill the gaps, we don't have huge game commitments anyway.



07 Mar 2021 19:34:49
Anyone heard anything about the doucoure rumours? Broken foot and out for the season?


1.) 07 Mar 2021 20:17:22
Hope not. If so who did he kick and how are they doing?

2.) 08 Mar 2021 17:01:22
Looks like it’s true as he’s not in the squad today.

3.) 12 Mar 2021 20:44:39
From the press conference today Carlo says he has a fracture and out for 8-10 weeks I think
Not confirmed if stress fracture or impact, quite a loss I feel.

4.) 12 Mar 2021 22:52:31
Yea massive loss that isn't it. Not the news we needed for the last 2 months of the sesson but hopefully Davies can consistently perform the way he has done in a couple of recent games as that would go a long way to filling the void.

5.) 13 Mar 2021 08:36:11
Massive opportunity for Davies.

6.) 12 Mar 2021 19:13:50
8-10 weeks out. Hats off to you TD you were spot on. One of best info that's been on here.

7.) 13 Mar 2021 14:35:59
Better than the Riquelme sightings? 😳.



19 Feb 2020 07:24:56
Ed002 I appreciate this may be a bit of a vague question so shoot me down if you have no idea. But you've nentioned player sales would be needed to help towards ffp, do you gave any idea who we might be looking to, or happy to, sell? And is there any interest in any of them?!


{Ed002's Note - Aside from the fringe players who do not have significant value, nope. Obviously there is money in the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Morgan Schneiderlin.}

1.) 19 Feb 2020 09:29:23
Happy for either or both of those to go tbh. Sigurdsson has just been too inconsistent since we bought him, the odd fantastic game then nothing for weeks.

2.) 19 Feb 2020 16:02:30
Cheers Ed. Yea agree gibbo. Not convinced we'd get much for either but at least something plus massive wages off the books! Sickening to think siggy schneiderlin Walcott and sandro costs us somewhere near half a million a week and none of them are good enough!

3.) 19 Feb 2020 17:21:51
My best memory of Sig’s was that wonder goal against Leicester, I couldn’t get tickets in the away end so had to sit with the Leicester fans. I had to look annoyed when it rifled in. 😂.

Excellent article in the echo from Michael Ball - saying it as it is in terms of quality, effort and desire. Its going to be incredibly difficult to attract top players this summer - I just hope if we can't get top players in their prime we go for younger, hungrier players rather than great players coming towards the latter years of their career and looking for a juicy contract.


1.) 25 May 2021 18:59:33
I think we need a bit of a mix of all the 3 groups you mentioned, TD. Obviuosly, without the mercenaries. We lack players that could be classed as leaders so I wouldn't mind too much if that kind of player is over 30. They would still need to be of decent quality. Will be a tough window but I still expect better players to come in, we'll find out soon enough eh.

2.) 25 May 2021 19:47:42
Yea very good point about lack of leaders. When we go a goal down everyone just sort of slumps and there's nobody geeing them up or barking instructions etc.

3.) 25 May 2021 20:51:25
1 or 2 'experienced' players needed al a Gray and Reid.

{Ed0666's Note - Andy Gray and Peter Reid would walk into you’re team now mate 😂

4.) 25 May 2021 20:52:18
Exactly, TD, we've been missing that kind of character for a long time.

5.) 25 May 2021 21:34:12
I think the list of players to keep from this season is a lot shorter than that of to sell.
Only players to keep would be Pickford, digne, Godfrey, possibly Keane, Coleman, Doucoure, Allan, DCL Ricky, and James when he can (mainly for global appeal. ) I would sell the rest to the highest bidder and start new. That's only 10 players so I guess CA will have to get his boots back on. If we can buy well this season I really think we have a shot at Europe next year. But need to bring in 5 quality players to breathe down the neck of the players listed above, because all of them had a poor end to the season. Even DCL couldn't be arsed half the time.

We have a hell of a job on our hands getting rid of them though. The bloody wages the dead weight are on, no one else will pay it.

6.) 26 May 2021 01:50:36
To me I think it will depend on the money available and what we want to achieve
Is it better to buy 4 players at 50m or 8 at 25m. Are the 50m players actually that much better than the 25m players. I think we have a weak squad - would we be better strengthening it rather than just strengthening the first 11
We need leaders but they don't necessarily have to old to be leaders, Grealish is a leader at Aston Villa, Maddison at Leicester, where's the next - we need them
Personally I don't want Koulibally at 50m = I'd prefer another 3 Nkounkous or 2 Godfreys
At the end of the day it will be up to CA and MB. On top of that they need to get rid of as much of the old guard that they can. THey won't be able to rid of them all but Iwobi, Sigurdson, Gomes, Delph, Besic, Bernard, Kenny are on that list for me (all the ones we shout out a cry of frustration when we see them on the team sheet or coming on as a sub) . Coleman I would keep as backup and because I think he is a better leader/ inspiration off the pitch than he's proved to be on it. I also don't see Holgate or Davies as Premiership quality but being pragmatic they can fill the squad so if they are happy to be stand ins (why they would be worries me) maybe we should let them.

{Ed0666's Note - a 50 million pound player is only a 50 million pound player if a club pays that fee. There’s gonna be bargains galore this transfer window especially in the French league.

7.) 26 May 2021 02:11:45
Agree ED and we need to be grabbing them up - not the big names on big money.

{Ed0666's Note - I think there’s a lot of decent players who are affordable for Everton around like Caletta Carr. I’m sure a fee of up to 30 million would secure his services and give him a hundred odd grand a week I don’t see no reason why he wouldn’t sign for you. Or say Sven Botman same thing. These players would elevate you and who you would recoup you’re money at least if you sold them on in the future.

8.) 26 May 2021 05:30:29
You might be a red ED but I'd sign you up (never liked redheads before)
Just to illustrate my ignorance though I don't know the 2 you've mentioned but will look them up.



01 May 2021 22:44:04
They were missing by far and away their best player which probably gave us false hope. Alas, the far better team won. We are very poor in every way and display no heart whatsoever. I cannot begin to fathom what goes on on the training ground. We are not improving technically, defensively or offensively. I made my peace with the truly diabolical state of our club and playing staff quite a while ago - nothing surprises me anymore. As long as they get their obscene pay checks they are happy.

We might be a total laughing stock on the football side of things, but we can and should continue to be incredibly proud of EITC - it is the single positive thing about Everton football club, but what a positive it is and frankly far more important than whenever a bunch of arrogant prima donnas win a game of footy!


{Ed0666's Note - Are we ready to have the Carlo out conversation Davie.?



08 Mar 2021 13:08:24
Just let go of my bt sport subscription - anyone know a good stream for watching the match?


1.) 08 Mar 2021 13:44:00
if you have a firestick look into eye pee tee vee bud £50 a year for everything.

2.) 08 Mar 2021 13:47:32
Aside from a dodgy fire stick the best bet is to type in Everton vs . stream and you’ll always find a quality link.

Haven’t used them for a while but releasesky.com always used to be reliable as well.

3.) 08 Mar 2021 15:14:34
Cheers lads.

4.) 08 Mar 2021 15:29:19
Super sport mate.

5.) 08 Mar 2021 16:48:46
Supersport bein sports Optus now sports plus many more as long as you don't have to listen to the LFC lovefest on bt sport's 😂😂.

6.) 08 Mar 2021 17:35:37
If youve got an android then download "live football streaming hd" never had a problem with it. It should have red arrow heads on the pic, 1 pointing left and 1 pointing right 👌.

7.) 08 Mar 2021 17:39:31
Depends what you're watching it on mate. hesgoals dot com always have streams but they can be a pain getting rid of the ads and pop-ups.



23 Feb 2021 13:04:17
Planning application approved!


1.) 23 Feb 2021 15:16:38
I watched the whole thing and the professionalism from our club was wonderful the committee all congratulated the club on how amazing the presentation was and any queries raised were answered straight away and just before the vote a couple of the committee actually had a few things to say about the world heritage association and how they would be happy to leave the city derelict. We should be very proud of the club for what they have done.

2.) 23 Feb 2021 18:44:23
Very true, a very professional job. I can't understand how anyone in their right minds can agree with the world heritage association, who actually goes to see the site as it is now? The people objecting have probably never been close, or if they have not more than once.

3.) 23 Feb 2021 21:57:41
World heritage association are crazy for objecting and very short sighted.

We’re in an economic crisis as a country and they are worried about the infilling of the sick and its impact on heritage.

The stadium will generate much needed economic boost to the city, create jobs, support local businesses and allow new jobs and businesses to hopefully flourish.

What does the site currently bring to the city - nowt!



15 Feb 2021 06:56:25
Well that was pretty bad - thought we were woeful all over the pitch both in terms of quality and workrate. James is clearly top class, but we need to work out a way of playing him that works for the team.
Out of our last 13 games he has been involved in 8.
The 5 games he didn't play in we took 15 points from (which included Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal) . The 8 games he did play in we have taken 6 points from.
I'm not trying to blame or scapegoat him - we all know how good he is and what he offers but Carlo needs to figure out how he can make it work with James in the starting lineup and needs to do it pretty quick if we want to stay in the battle for top 8 this season.


1.) 15 Feb 2021 08:46:13
He is a brilliant player but more importantly a luxury and there is the reason he was out of favour at his other Club. Carlo is a wonderful coach/ manager but like others, perhaps allows sentiment to creep into his thinking. So here is an idea! How about employing the system and players that appears to be working away from home; at home. Without fans, Teams (except us apparently) do seem to be playing their best system home and away. Just a thought.

Thing is we've had pre seasons before where we've won all our games and then started the season badly! As long as Rafa is getting what he wants out of it re fitness/ development of style/ running rule over players then I couldn't give a monkeys on results and even performances. You wouldn't watch a boxer sparring a few weeks before a big fight and be worried that he didn't box the way you expect him to on the big night!

I don't get the ferocity of the opposition to this possible signing. It would be free and probably on very reasonable wages - he had more assists last season than Iwobi despite playing for a much worse side. Surely if we were to bring him in and sell Iwobi that would be excellent business?
It looks like we are finally paying for years of woeful decisions ffp wise - that is not Rafa Benitez fault so if we have hardly anything to spend what's he supposed to do!


{Ed025's Note - but its hardly what we were looking for davey, if your team has aspirations of finishing in the top 6...you dont sign the likes of andros townsend mate..

Dont really follow the 'These clubs see us coming" comment Ducks? We're getting him on a free transfer.

Agree in general that we seem to vastly overpay on fees and wages but don't think a freebie is an example of it!

Using that 62% bed occupancy as evidence that the jabs aren't effective is either naive or disingenuous. Way more than 62% of the adult population have had both jabs (think about 75%) so in fact that actually shows that the vax does have an impact. Add into that, that they started with the oldest and most vulnerable. So the fittest healthiest people in society aren't double jabbed yet but also wouldn't be expected to be hospitalised at the same rate so again that skews the figures somewhat. Many of those double jabbed people might be in the ground rather than in the hospital of they weren't double jabbed.
In any case, you're a great poster and this is a football forum so it'd be a real shame if you left because of differing views on a non football related matter!

How is it discrimination? Pretty sure those that have medical reasons not to be able to benefit from the vax (the unfortunate folk who will be most susceptible if the C.V. continues to circulate) will be exempt so those affected would be fine to attend the match still. And for everyone else it's a choice, you're not being discriminated against if you choose not to go ahead and have the vax when you know the implications. Is it discriminatory to say that people must take a driving test (and pay for it) in order to safely drive a car?

It'd be the other way round for me personally! Hopefully there will be fringe players that can raise a few bob rather than selling our better players - starting with Delph, the guy who believes the human body should be able to overcome all but has spent majority of his career in the care of medical professionals.
I also wouldn't be upset if mina went. Nothing against him really just think he's a saleable asset on huge wages and don't think losing him weakens our first 11.
