Here we go again. why oh why is it that Everton, season after season bare the brunt of idle press gossip that bamboozles us long suffering fans into believing all sorts in terms of new players
I believe we are the most secretive yet most targeted club when it comes to transfers.

I am however concerned that with a little over a week left before the window shuts we are no closer to recruiting the "5" players we so desperately need to improve on last season's performance.
I have to have faith in MB and MS as they seem to have the full support of the club and surety they have a plan that nobody. not even the irritant that is Jim White knows about.

I didn't see the Delph move coming and think it's a very shrewd move. here's to more secretive shrewd moves in the next week. please!




27 Sep 2018 22:20:21
Great news about Pickford he's got a great future. still not convinced by Silva but will support him anyway but he needs a win, a performance and a clean sheet to take the immediate pressure off that allows him to shape his team. let's hope he gets it!

Does anyone know why we are playing league cup next week but no one else is?


1.) 27 Sep 2018 22:44:51
To fit in with that red lot.

Chelsea did not want to play Their game on the Tuesday, the Reds were happy to play either Day, it was to accommodate Chelsea not our neighbours, so we chose to play the following week, rather than last Tuesday.

Should we beat Southampton, we will not have the same scenario in the next round.



17 Sep 2018 22:37:17
So what's changed? . since Moyes left what has actually changed? . other than shelling out over the odds for average players and promises of success from a billionaire investor nothing has changed.
Same old story. injuries, bad luck, poor decisions are the same excuses being used from Martinez and before long Silva too.

How can an unproven manager who jumps ship more often than Uncle Albert be the answer?
Yet again we have the promise and all die hard fans are sucked into the "plan". what we actually have is 6 points from what should be 15 with probably the easiest start to a season any manager could hope for never mind a new one with a statement to make.

Why o why is it always Everton that allow the "bad run" to end be it a team or individual player?
The kids are not good enough, Schneiderlen is not good enough, Tosun is not good enough. I could go on!
Ferguson must go and Silva needs to show very quickly why the owners have put so much faith in him because I for one cannot see it!


1.) 18 Sep 2018 06:44:29
kids aren't good enough yet kenny was one of best on the pitch, morgan not good enough yet we have fell apart every time he hasn't been on the pitch.
you talk about getting sucked into the plan then proceed to waffle about statements to be made? is that not the same thing, suck it up mate and either support or go follow city if you just want an easy ride.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 07:28:09
Jumping on the manager after 5 games is just ridiculous. I'm pretty sure every one of us would want more points than we have. Yes some did get a little carried away with all the optimism but if the alternative is just being miserable and banging on about Moyes then sorry I'll be with optimists.
Things may not work out you may be right, but excuses or not you cannot say injuries/ suspensions have done Silva any favors.
We bought in a lot of players, but unlike other coaches Silva did not try and rush them all into the team, he was patient and it was looking OK. Silly suspensions and a few injuries later and he has been forced to play players who either aren't ready or aren't in form.
Recruitment wise Richarlison, Digne both look class, Bernard showed he may be too and they are all new recruits. There is plenty still to be optimistic about but for some reason you would prefer not to see it!

3.) 18 Sep 2018 09:10:40
Some did the exact same thing last season with Koeman and look at the teams we had to play then in the first 6 games. Will Silva last past Christmas? Injuries will play no more bigger part than it did for Koeman. What will, is the fans ability to stay patient with the management and team until they gel. Silva's change in playing style may give him a little more leeway with some but as you can see some fans are not happy already. For me its fundamentally down to the argument of what type of football are we prepared to watch. Pragmatic football based around defensive solidity that gets results occasional wins mainly draws, but not pretty to watch or a more expansive attacking game that is high risk in the fact that we need to score more than concede. To me it looks like the same situation ManU are currently in the process of trying to figure out with Mourinho. It's said patience is a virtue and I can see why. Patience is what we need but whether Silva get enough, time will tell.

4.) 20 Sep 2018 15:46:35
You can look for blame in so many ways but quite simply defensive errors like a suicidal throw out by Pickford, ball watching centre backs and strikers that could not hit the pre verbial barn door!
Ifs and buts except the outcome and the post motel would have been very different!

Appreciate this won't go down well with some but I think a few are getting a little carried away with yesterdays result and performance.
YES we won, YES we played some good football and YES there were some sterling individual performances. but this was Wolves who although had a great season last term are now finding out how difficult Europa league qualification is.
We've let in 4 goals in 2 games following 2 clean sheets from the start and yesterday was not a patch on the Liverpool, Chelsea, Utd and Arsenal performances from last season.

I do believe that we will get stronger and quite quickly but let's not get too carried away too soon as all it leads to is a return of the doom and gloom brigade.
We should have scored at least 5 yesterday. we didn't, we shouldn't have conceded any but we did and in poor style.

Agree with the Coleman comments and as much as I love him he needs to take a back seat as he is all too predictable. that's the only change we need to make.
Let's see where we are by the end of September as we have a very tough run ahead of us into October and Novembet.

We have a great opportunity to build some. e points momentum head of this run with hugely winnable games. let's just hope we don't blow it like we did last season following the derby disaster!


1.) 03 Sep 2019 06:52:43
Come on Trev, you can only beat what's in front of you. The first games in a season are all about getting up to speed whilst also getting results.
You could argue that wolves after 10 games should be upto speed already, you could also argue that we made them look ordinary by not letting them have the ball.

Either way, we need to celebrate results like this whatever point in the season. We will improve and I'm sure Wolves will put in better performances, so what.
We need to be beating the teams that were around us last season and so far we've beaten 2 of them.

Remember the Newcastle and Milwall games last season? Normally we would Everton it up and would have lost the wolves game but not this time.

As you say, we played well, won and had some good individual performances. Feel free not to get carried away, but I am. For now anyway.

2.) 03 Sep 2019 08:26:02
Yes we won, Yes we played well and Yes there were some sterling individual performances. Well that good enough for me!

3.) 03 Sep 2019 11:21:05

You're totally right to inject some realism into fans expectations.

Whilst the goals we have conceded have been well taken goals they've showed errors by us defensively that Silva has acknowledged and will be working on

Not so convinced re Coleman. I didn't see enough from Sidebe that would make me choose him over Seamus just yet but there is certainly potential there to make changes later in the season.

Offensively we were a lot better than the first 3 games of the season but some of that was Wolves having an off day at the back - what were they doing for our first? We have to remember though it was with 2 new signings in the side and we will only improve as they get to know their teammates better

I think we will continue to get better defensively and offensively but there will be bumps in the road. When they come let's not overreact but remember the progress being made

The other point I'd make is a lot of people want Ricky on the left. I think he is stronger there but Everton, the team, is better with Iwobi on the left and Ricky on the right, not the other way around


4.) 03 Sep 2019 12:04:45
Fellow Blues let’s just enjoy the win, the other week we’re behind Wolves and United and would be struggling to finish 8th according to some posts after the wolves v Man U match, now you’d think wolves were a relegation side!
Let’s be realistic it was Delphs first premiership match and we looked more organised so that’s a huge positive
Kean is still adjusting, couple more games and I think we will be seeing him make even more of a difference
And Iwobi is making such a difference
Channel the positives stop picking holes for the negatives!

5.) 03 Sep 2019 12:32:31
Good post bw.

I wonder if Iwobi would be good on the right or even better than Richarlison. Not seen him there but if he is then a swap for me might be worth looking into.

6.) 03 Sep 2019 12:34:12
Big stretch that to say we made Wolves look ordinary. They came back twice, quite easily and in my opinion we were playing well against a good side and they against a good side. These early games are a chance to bed in and give us a points foundation, prior to meeting the 'big' boys.

7.) 03 Sep 2019 13:16:45
I don't disagree with you Southern Toffee in some ways but I'm feeding of Delph's philosophy

Could we have been better? The answer is yes, we were very, very good but we could have been better so let's not rest on our laurels. Let's work to be better.

Watch Delph's old team. Every week you see Guardiola on the sidelines pushing his players to improve at something. If we want to be top, even top 4 we have to have the same attitude, We have to want to improve and win every single week - not coast because we won the previous week because the pressure is not off - it should be higher

Remember our motto NSNO. I want us to strive for that every week.

8.) 03 Sep 2019 19:26:47
Now that I can whole heartedly agree with, why settle? Push for more! We want players that will do that, show their passion show their belief feed off each other push each other!
Depth in the squad will help as well knowing there is someone hungry for your role in the team itching to get off the bench and not just happy sitting there for a pay packet!
We also need the manager to get the fire in his belly!
Seeing when a player leaves the pitch they have given their all!

9.) 03 Sep 2019 19:35:28

I think Iwobi played most of his games for Arsenal on the left but, I'm sure Silva is trying out the other way around in training and I also don't see why they couldn't swap wings during the games like most sides do to try and disrupt the opposition

What I do like is both have them have come off their wings to score more than once now so it's beginning to work, the system we currently have.

10.) 03 Sep 2019 20:17:51
We made Wolves look ordinary, Silva got the tactics spot on, exploiting the 3 at the back. Siggy moving to the right and finding space. Our fitness is coming back and we were back to doubling up on the tackle.
All credit to Silva for the subs, which took the game away from Wolves.



28 Aug 2019 12:10:39
I believe that tonight is a very important game that could define our season and the faith in Silva.
If we produce another boring laboured performance just scraping through then nothing has changed. if we see an exciting attacking display blooding all new recruits with an emphatic win then people will believe that we can build on it and apply in the league. it may only be Lincoln but these are the games where we has slipped up time and time again.
With the trust, faith and finances given to Silva he owes the club an end to the trophy drought that has beleaguered us for nearly 25 years, starting with the league cup.
We have a great squad on paper so let's see if he can manage them into a winning team. if it's the same old then I may well be joining the premature following of #Silva out!


1.) 28 Aug 2019 13:25:30
And if we play all our new signings and narrowly lose he'll get hammered for not taking it seriously enough

Whatever he decides re the team and how they play I'd take a win by whatever means


2.) 28 Aug 2019 13:30:11
I just wanted to add that Lincoln City are already a ‘winning team’ and are very much a club on the up. Yes we should still be winning games like these but it most definitely won’t be an easy ride. They are already a very good team. ‘Silva out’ after a hand full of games with half a dozen new players to bed in is just ridiculous, the only fans who want him out are the same ones who didn’t want him in in the first place.

3.) 28 Aug 2019 14:30:32
Hard game tonight Lincoln very organised and good at set pieces. Reckon 1-2 to us. But don't criticise a hard thought win.



10 Aug 2019 23:28:18
Game 1 of the new season away to a team that has a +£80m player that is so good we were prepared to "prostitute" ourselves to buy, in extremely difficult weather conditions with our new signings barely had a chance to train and then losing our key midfield playmaker and going down to 10 men and we come away with a point. possession was ours and we were the better team so 3 points should have been ours but given the above a draw is a result for me.


1.) 11 Aug 2019 00:52:56
TrickyTrev7 that is the best summation I have read. You are spot on.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 05:06:04
It was the first game of the season
We didn't see much of the new signings - Gbamin one half and Kean a 20 minute cameo
Defensively we were fairly sound but gave a couple of chances that we had to be grateful to Pickford for saving
Midfield was 'OK' although Siggy was very quiet, Gomes had to go of injured and Scheiderlin was stupid for his first booking and even more stupid for diving in when booked and getting sent off
Attack - Bernard and Richarlison OK. DCL good hold up play but no real cutting edge from any of them which has been our problem for a while now. Crystal Palace although not having our possession edged us in clear cut chances in my opinion.

Next week Gbamin will probably start with Schids suspended and not sure on extent of Gomes injury. I think Kean will also start and we will look at getting Iwobi into the side

It was not the start we wanted. Although a draw away from home isn't a bad result, we have lost points we could have obtained with better finishing.

Please - This is a discussion site and we all want to see differing opinions but the constant negativity of a couple of so called supporters is quite frankly disappointing. I wish we could all be constructive in any criticisms of the club, management and players.

I hope we all want the same thing, a successful Everton, but it's difficult to see it sometimes


3.) 11 Aug 2019 08:23:47
You three take a bow. 👍😉.

4.) 11 Aug 2019 08:41:33
It must be difficult when some have had to wait a couple of months to slate Silva.

Under the circumstances the draw was a reasonable result.
Richarlison will get up to speed and Siggy and Bernard will improve.

Onwards and upwards.

5.) 11 Aug 2019 10:01:12
Listened to the game in work and we sounded woeful but after watching it not to bad a performance deserved a win in my opinion just looked a little rusty in key moments very dissapointed in sniderlin though should now better God I love this club coyb plus side thought mina was one off r stand out players.

6.) 11 Aug 2019 14:31:06
If the defence is sound which it looks like it is then we can sort the attack with the new signings coming in.

7.) 11 Aug 2019 21:31:47
Think if Iwobi can produce on the left the way he has against us in the past then Iwobi, Kean, Richarlison, with Bernard behind as the 10 (Siggy has his off days) , would work.



04 Aug 2019 23:43:42
If we could only sign one more player this window (hopefully that's not the case) who should it be?


1.) 05 Aug 2019 06:35:27

2.) 05 Aug 2019 07:57:38
Right winger for me, an zouma also would be amazing ha. Zaha would be good. I personally thought malcolm would of been a great signing at the price also but that ship has sailed.



04 May 2019 22:50:18
Player of the season and transfer of the season?
For me gueye and zouma.


1.) 05 May 2019 01:09:15
Digne and zouma.

2.) 05 May 2019 07:33:12
Digne and Zouma for me.

3.) 05 May 2019 08:12:01
Digne and Bernard.

4.) 05 May 2019 15:32:37
Digne is the standout success, Mina the standout fail. Richarlison is going to be brilliant (cut out the falling over) Bernard a class act, Gomes good but for me not a priority, Zouma is the problem, we need this lad but I fear we will lose out.

{Ed025's Note - zouma is the glue that holds that defence together BCT, hes a class act and his signature should be the No1 priority for me mate..

5.) 05 May 2019 15:46:09
agree 110 %.

I agree Ace. Pickford is the most confident keeper England have had in many years.
Not just because he's a blue but I always have an unusual confidence in him when playing for England (unusual in that previous keepers always make you feel on edge) and in penalty situations you always believe that he'll save at least one. and generally does.

I'm of the opinion that there are unique matches between clubs and managers. Eddie Howe being a current example.
A Moyes return would be seen a backwards step for probably 95% of supporters and forgiving the way he departed I would happily see him return in an interim role to get the team back to basics.
Silva is another example of the desire to have a foreign manager playing nice football but unfortunately for us he was the best we could attract.
We are a laughing stock with our irresponsible spending and appointment. Silva is not our future nor will he ever be.
Moyes may be spent as a Premier manager force but at least he has (had) a passion for our club. we could do worse!


{Ed0333's Note - you could do worse than Moyes, in fact you did with Alladyce. I agree with you’re irresponsible spending remark, for two seasons in a row you have bought badly (besides Richardson & Digne) and have spent a lot of money in the process. If I were brands I would revolutionize you’re scouting network, invest heavily in the academy oh and get rid of Silva pronto.

Eds sound like bitter blues and should respect the talent Barkley has. bit childish to rubbish him just because he's no longer with us. yes frustrated with his exit but still a talent.


{Ed025's Note - your wrong trev i have always been consistent where ross is concerned, bags of talent but has never grown up and has made some terrible life choices imo mate, as a wavertree lad myself i was desperate for him to do well, this is not sour grapes its an indictment of how fame and fortune have blighted his career and if he turns it around then no one will be happier than me, this is of course just my opinion and you are entitled to yours..
