That game sums up what we knew, most of these players are not good enough, Davis Sigurdsson, Iwobi.
We need quality to go with the players that will gel some of these other players Gomez needs a player like Guye alongside home and a Coutinho or Rodriguez to get best out of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.


1.) 06 Jul 2020 23:27:40
To be honest, there are more than those 3 who are not good enough, we don't even have anyone out injured who could come in and make an impact. on a lighter note, Gordon looks to have a bright future, he should definitly start the next game.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 23:49:45
I thought Davies played well but what am I saying I forgot most blues can't wait to get on the 22 year olds back because he's a local lad and we all know how Everton fans love to crucify a local player God help Gorden when Davies finally has enough and leaves only to be called a traitor and snake by the same fans who crucify him.

3.) 06 Jul 2020 23:59:12
Gordon was the only shining light in a terrible performance.

Spurs were rubbish and there for the taking.

Very disappointing after our last 3 results - probably the slim chance of Europe now gone.

Some rebuilding to do in the next month or so.

I don’t get Sigurdsson - he offers nothing - I’m assuming the continual selection of him is to get him in the shop window so to speak but if anyone watched him they’ll be asking us to pay them to take him off our hands.
Iwobi also poor, seems to shy away.
Gomes also had a stinker - always appeared to want to play it backwards.

4.) 07 Jul 2020 10:10:34
Davies being a local lad has nothing to do with the fact that he is not good enough. He did not have a good game and is clearly not good enough for a team aspiring to be trophy winners.
That game last night was there for the taking, against a Spurs side low on confidence and morale. But we have a team with zero creativity in the midfield, and I’m not just talking about Davies. Iwobi is clueless, I really cannot see how the guy became a prem player, offers nothing. Gomes since his injury is slow and can’t make a forward pass. Sigurdsson is a coward who clearly has not got what it takes to play in midfield. Bernard too lightweight for the prem. Delph bloody pointless.
That gents is our midfield, and that is why we are boring to watch and have no creativity, and why DCL and Richy spend all night running around for nothing.
We need at least two midfielders and a right winger or another striker.
Without them we are f****d.

5.) 07 Jul 2020 10:46:57
I agree Woburn, Tom Davies has 100 appearance's for Everton now, there is no agenda to get on his back more just because he is an Everton fan, it because its clear he is not good enough for the level we're currently at, nevermind the level we aspire to be at, he gives away silly free kicks regularly, his lack of pace off the mark plays into that, also if he doesn't receive the ball in acres of space, he generally loses it or becomes involved in a scrap for it, which obviously kills any momentum we're hoping to build, if we hadn't lost Gbamin, and Delph didn't have chronic injury issues the harsh fact is that Davies wouldn't start many games, if Carlo gets some of his targets in the Summer, I can see Davies either going on loan or going permanently, I would wish him nothing but the best, but its time to face facts.

6.) 07 Jul 2020 11:09:30
Been a while since I posted but after last nights debacle maybe time to share my disappointment!
Sigurdsson has become the new Schneiderlin absolutely gave nothing, Davies is not improving, DCL will never be a 20 goal striker although he puts a shift in. Bernard to lightweight for the premier league., Kean I'm sot sure about really haven't seen enough of him. Iwobi just drifts in the game with no real contribution exactly why Arsenal moved him on. Gordon promising yes but will we expect to much to soon? I thought Digne was okay but to few had any commitment to the cause last night, Ancelotti has a massive rebuild!

7.) 07 Jul 2020 12:43:41
Davies improved second half but I agree the lads just nkt good enough. Sigurdson I woukd give away to get him off the wage bill. I woukd seriously start playing richiarlison on the wing and giving mouse kean a run of games.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 16:17:48
Davies is not improving his match awareness is below PL standard for one thing, and that's how football goes it's nothing to do with his being one of us. Saying he will leave and be called a traitor for doing so, probably won't happen because that decision will be in the hands of someone else.
I could imagine the EFL is his next stomping ground.

9.) 07 Jul 2020 16:27:19
Posters are saying Dcl will never be a 20 goal striker, before the lockdown he was scoring almost a goal a game.

I am sorry but the service he is getting from our midfield is woeful, playing it short around the back four and keeper then a hoof up to our forward line.

Our midfield is offering absolute zero to the forward line, it is down to Richarlison to try and get the ball rolling, and our two full backs getting down the wings.

Teams know we offer nothing in midfield are instructed to double up on Richardson and stop him playing and crowd Dcl.

Until we get that midfield sorted, then our good work in defence and attack will count for nothing.

10.) 07 Jul 2020 20:03:59
Well said bignev.
No way should anyone be slating DCL - he is getting no service.
The midfield lacks creativity and he’s feeding off scraps. Get a creative midfielder or even a midfielder who isn’t afraid to go forward with the ball and supply the strikers and it’ll be a different outcome.
Like the look of Gordon and hopefully he’ll be able to provide that killer pass our midfield is lacking.

11.) 07 Jul 2020 21:27:29
I would play Holgate in midfield until we get someone better. Sigurdsson should be nowhere near the first eleven. Leave Richarlison on the left wing, Gordon on the right and give Keane a chance with DCL in the middle. Sorted and they pay me nothing.

12.) 08 Jul 2020 19:16:12
I like holgate in midfield as well. Problem there is then we only have 2 CBs. So many new players required. A bit worrying really given our financial situation.

13.) 10 Jul 2020 02:06:34
Carrying on from my previous post above, it was down to our fullback yet again to create our chance for the goal against Southampton, only Gordon again came out with any credit in that midfield.

Against Wolves on Sunday I would keep the same defence, if Holgate is still injured and forward line, play Gordon Baningime and if fit Gomes in midfield, and daft as this sounds I would play both Digne and Baines on the left, with whoever on the right, will leave it to other posters to select the right wing.

{Ed025's Note - the midfield is a major problem bignev, i will make excuses for gomes as i dont think hes fit but davies, sigurdsson and iwobi are not worth a carrot, they offer nothing and i can see ritchie and DCL getting very frustrated with the lack of service, im a big fan of carlo but i have to question his reluctance to change things and even though i realise we do not have great depth i would play kids before those 3 mate..



03 Feb 2019 23:51:21
I don't see where our next win is coming from to be honest I think we are in as much mess as we have been for last 3 seasons just a different manager in charge, I know he is ex reds but go get Rafa he is world class manager, we won't get anyone has good as him in our situation without champions league.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 09:06:32
i said the same before we appointed silva.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 12:29:47
The first thing that should be done is to ditch the zonal marking system he using then I think we will start to see better defending.



27 Jan 2019 23:04:05
Easy to make comments after the manager has not worked out the best we could of got this season was 7th and a good cup run, ok out of cup but 7th is still achievable but for me it's important next 15 games of season as will set tone for summer and new season we can't keep sacking managers.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 09:08:51
We can’t keep appointing poor managers either.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 09:20:08
Good sensible post mate, too many knee jerk reactions on here, by the way some write I don't think they would be happy with any manager, he has to have time and I am sure the Club will give him it.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 11:46:14
A manager has to show he can coach a side and improve players at his disposal. Also he has to motivate and irrespective of results these things can be seen by most supporters.
Sadly none of these things are showing under the present manager and they should be visible within a few short months. Yes time to win trophies and challenge at the top but not long for there to be signs of improvement.
Look to Man U, total change in the team right away.
So Guernsey cannot exept what your saying in anyway.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 16:57:03
Who would you have as manager then dark clouds.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 18:03:49
Well Maureen's free at present GB. Think she would come till the end of the season?

{Ed025's Note - i cant think of a worse candidate nick..

6.) 28 Jan 2019 18:30:13
Yeah right mate.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 20:41:11
its not about finishing 7th its about the quality of football and being entertained, if silva is still manager for next season i for one will not be renewing my season ticket after 32 years.

8.) 28 Jan 2019 20:54:35
Bad managers who do okay elsewhere. Maybe we are the problem? Might be me but something gone wrong with heart and sole of playing side of club. Watched prog on Sunderland other day and some scary similarities.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 10:52:15
Asked who I would have as manager, not easy I admit but quite fancy Arteta, he knows the club and did want the job in the summer.
I exept that a good coach which he must be to be right hand to Pep at City does not allways make a good manager but no manager comes without risk anyway.
He lives in the area and knows what Evertonians want, he must be a good shout.
I like the look of Lampard at Derby but it is early days in his management career.



17 Jul 2018 22:14:54
Everton in advanced talks for Malcom

Just hit sky.




12 May 2018 14:24:25
I think fans are being a bit too impatient yes been a disaster all round. I did not get carried away at start of season and certainly did not expect us to finish any higher that 7th but we were suppose to bridge the gap start a plan a vision, we have finished 8th maybe 9th after tomorrow but feels like just survived.

We are in a worse situation than end of last summer. No matter who comes in the likely hood is that we won't finish any higher than 7th next season, it's a case of stick or twist for Moshiri even though I don't lik Sam he would probably gaurentee if where bringing in a silva or foncesca is a huge gamble and could end within 10 games If we get bad start, I mean although silva does play a nice style he has not spent a whole season at a english club, Eddie Howe would be a better option than him let's not forget this will be Bournemouth 3rd season in prem and he does it playing football and a philosophy, with better players I think he is a top manager.


1.) 12 May 2018 15:27:58
I would honestly rather see us relegated having a go and taking a gamble, than see us finish 7th/ 8th watching the dross we’ve seen this season. Until we all stop thinking negatively and just about survival we are never going to kick on as a club. As much as I loathe them, we need to take a leaf out of dark side, and just start believing where our rightful place is: back at the top.

2.) 12 May 2018 16:21:56
I feel like there's an inbetween from being relegated to competing haha.

3.) 12 May 2018 17:17:11
Self fulfilling mediocrity. not the kind of aim I want for us Hugo. Roll the dice and have a go.

4.) 13 May 2018 09:59:45
Even thou I was really glad when Sam came in, I really have change my mind now, The problem is, since we've been safe from relegation he has had the chance to play more attacking football, play more attacking players, he hasn't, this I feel is the only way he knows how to set teams up, difficult to beat but with no real attacking threat, I thank him for what he has done, but if we want top players, we need a manager that can play top style football, no point buying attacking players and asking them to defend in our own half for 90 mins.

{Ed025's Note - i agree simon..

5.) 13 May 2018 22:23:33
He’s probably got a clause for more money per point so taking a safe 1 than risk it for 3.

It's hard to take that 1/ 3rd of our defeats in league has come at the hands of Newcastle in the league.
Way too much doom and gloom, and I don't know if it's down to the way this season is panning out or the fact we our now expecting more than what we would of settled for at start of season.
The aim as always been to get into Europe and Carlo has always stated that is the goal.
Yesterday was a lazy performance and missed opportunity, personally I would of stuck with the same back 4 that have looked solid, so much space behind our full backs.


{Ed025's Note - expectation is high TBM because we know that when we are at it we are a match for anyone, unfortunately we have days like yesterday when it looks like we just cant be arsed mate..

1.) 31 Jan 2021 14:34:27
Consistency is.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 14:38:29
Just watching Leicester-Leeds. The pace of the game is great. Watch it then think of how we played yesterday. Then tell me we will still get into Europe.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 15:06:29
Not a chance mate.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 16:31:14
Leicester and Leeds have played like that all season and Leeds are below us and Leicester aren't far away if we win our games in hand.
Plus we took 4 points off the fast paced Leicester.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 17:30:11
Leeds won't be below us for long based on that.
Win our games in hand against City and Villa. Very funny Smit😂.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 17:39:04
Well we've beaten, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Leicester so why can't we beat Villa and City? Or are they unbeatable? 🤣.

7.) 31 Jan 2021 18:46:02
Anything is possible, I guess we can beat them, only right now not many of us fans see us doing it .
Carlo has a 'rep. ' that would erode dramatically in the football world if he cannot improve upon this last outing, because they let him down massively and right now we do not look like a 'top half of the PL ' team in any shape or form.
On paper we do of course though fits and starts only in practice, and to our frustration we looked very wishy washy poor against NUFC !

8.) 31 Jan 2021 19:46:32
Smit I would love to be wrong mate, but we are currently in free fall, and nowhere near the level we were at early season. I’m basing my views on our last two games where we were battered by Leicester but managed a draw. And then we’re done by a team who had lost there last five.

9.) 31 Jan 2021 20:32:56
We've lost 2 in 9 and everyones heads are falling off. 8th but played 2 less games than all above us. 3pts from 2 games and were 5th.
Come on.

10.) 31 Jan 2021 21:04:50
I think it's the manner we are losing Smitty, that concerns us, if we could blame Jordan (which we can't against NUFC) or 'var', lucky pens. lucky deflection, or quite simply the opposition are light years ahead of us in quality ala Man City, the thing is mate we are looking bloody awful atm.



01 Nov 2020 23:20:27
Not great again today but unlike last week where Southampton were excellent, the same can't be said for today, players missing I get that but the intensity we played with has vanished, we were aggressive and since the infamous VVD tackle and media rubbish storm we looked like a soft team, players pressing is slow, Calvert lewin is the real deal he wastes very little and his chest control was brilliant.
The more games Richarlison and Rodriguez play well the more games we win but after that the drop off is massive.


1.) 02 Nov 2020 08:14:30
It will get fixed mate, but it will take time. Carlo knows we don't have the quality outside the 1st 11 (among the seniors) . All they have done is perhaps to convince Carlo look toward toward our U 23's to bring through. January is difficult so it will be a case of best foot forward until summer. If I was offered 7th now, I would take it.



26 Sep 2020 20:06:09
Can't believe how enjoyable it is to watch us, we have identity at last, Carlo and Brands have got Everton's recruitment right this time and haven't spent a lot doing it. Moshri for the first time must be beaming, all though he has made mistakes, his ambition and backing can't be questioned.




16 Aug 2020 22:09:30
Can't understand why people are suggesting a loan move away for Davis, our central midfield is weak as it is and he is currently the only one that we can count on being fit every week, we have not signed anyone yet and midfield is an area that we need to strengthen so letting go of Tom does not make sense.


1.) 16 Aug 2020 23:44:18
Sorry trueblue - not sure what being fit has got to do with it if he’s not a great player?
I agree our midfield is a nightmare at the minute but the fact you want to keep a poor player because they are fit every week is bizarre.

I know we all want him to do well because he’s a local lad, but he just doesn’t seem to be improving.

In our current midfield he has had the perfect opportunity to be standing out and stake his claim as our best midfielder. Playing alongside Sigurdsson and Gomes who have been dire this season he should have shone as neither have been great this season, but he’s not he’s been as bad as them.

He’s been poor on the ball, gets pushed over too easily, struggles at times with the simple passes and seems to prefer playing backwards than forwards. Admittedly can be said about all 3.

Would prefer to sell Sigurdsson but that never going to happen.

Tom has played over 100 games for us and by now you’d hope to see a brilliant player there as we all want that to happen but he seems to be stagnating. I currently don’t see him as being a player that takes us to the next level.

With finances as tight as they apparently are and we need to sell to buy then if club are happy with the offer then we have to accept it and move on and wish him all the best.

If he develops into a world beater will be frustrating.
But Steve Walsh got us in such a mess with our team and poor investments that we no longer have the luxury of holding onto players that might come good as we have to generate some income.

{Ed0666's Note - Was it really all Steve Walsh’ fault Gingerdan?

2.) 17 Aug 2020 07:34:29
Tom along with others in our Team are simply not good enough and need to be moved on, we see it every week misplaced passes and sideways passes etc and not to mention the pointless fouls.

3.) 17 Aug 2020 10:29:50
Is Tom Davies that bad a player if he was, why is he selected infront of others within the team. CA must see something in him as he keeps selecting him. Maybe we need to move CA on as well as his judgement must be suspect if he keeps selecting him.

4.) 17 Aug 2020 10:31:16
I support Everton not the player, I don’t care were the player is from if he isn’t good enough then he has to go.

5.) 17 Aug 2020 11:04:43
Davis the new Barkley. Why do our local lads bear the brunt, if davis passes to sigs he is doing lamp post impressions, so ball bounces anywhere, to pass to gomez he needs to play backwards as gomez is still a long way off speed, try passing to richarldson he's busy being kicked to the ground, and tom needs good luck working out where or what iwobi is doing, and if Bernard's on same as richy but caused by the wind blowing him over, dcl stood wondering why balls gone back to pickford, who's flapped and probably messed it up, davis has found Walcott and he's crossed it for a goal kick. Feel a bit sorry for davis in a way he looked a belter 3 years back, but is it all his fault?

6.) 17 Aug 2020 19:26:45
Sigurdson was probably worse last year, but who going to buy him based on his daft wages?

7.) 17 Aug 2020 21:03:37
we can't replace the whole team! Tom Davies is about 10th on the replacement list.
Tom Davies is not good enough for us? We finished 12th. Who are we replacing him with? Messi?
Let's all just have a reality check. We aren't buying players to break into the top 4 we are buying players to compete with Leicester, Wolves and Burnley for 7th next season.
Sheff utd finished above us last season. Not with world class players but with a team of hard workers that played as a team, Tom is a hard worker. So before you wish for a worldy that strolls around the pitch but can't fit into a team let's just realise where we are as a squad before we turn into West Ham.

8.) 17 Aug 2020 09:56:58
Hi Ed, probably not all Steve Walsh’s fault but a big part of our problem lies at his feet with the transfers he has made. Moshiri was probably naive in expecting him to replicate the success he had with Leicester but had the clubs interest at the centre of his thinking as he wants Everton to succeed.
Walsh was brought in to develop the team and make them challenge at the top of the league but majority of his transfers were a mistake. How many no 10s and left wingers does one team need?
If our recruitment had been better or more sensible we would not be in the mess we are now.
Moshiri not a football man so thought bringing Walsh in was a good thing to do - just a shame so many of his purchases not great.

{Ed0666's Note - thanks mate I am not as well versed in the inner workings of Everton apart from what Eds 025 tells me and usually he slobbers when he talks and forgets most things, but we’re all gonna get old sometime. I remember you had that wave of signings when Koeman was manager I remember thinking none of them are actually any good. Sigurdson, Keane, Pickford, klaason and others I think you spent £100 million on seven players. You can’t just blame moshiri and Walsh, elastomer has to shoulder the blame also. I don’t know how you’re gonna get rid of all these mediocre at best players? The only positives I see are ancelotti who has fantastic contacts in the game and by all accounts you have some excellent youth coming up. I’d love to see Everton on the up again I really would. Have a good season mate.



05 Aug 2020 16:52:47
What are people's expectations next season, as there seems to be a lot of mixed responses from what we need and what we are going to get, with FFP and needing to sell a lot of players to make room for new ones.
We can not have another season of finishing bottom half, over last 2 season we have seen clubs leapfrog us like wolves, Burnley and Sheffield Utd.
If we don't bring in 2/ 3 players of quality then we won't finish top 10 regardless of FFP or rubbish we can't sell.


1.) 05 Aug 2020 17:36:51
Top7 competitive and less stressful and angering than the last 4 years. Maybe break the habit of a lifetime and win the league Cup?

Seems to be a lot more realism with the ditching of lots of u23s who were never going to make it. Like to see a few 1st teamers follow them out the door.

Be great to see a few careers resurrected too. Sigs won't be going anywhere so he needs to pull something out of his ar. e as does Pickford.

4 windows is only fair. Jurgen needed them and they were already in and about the top4.
But I expect some unknowns to be signed and for us to be the team with the season on season biggest improvement.

If it goes down the tubes yet again next season, I'll start to find another sport. Fingers crossed we aren't the laughing stock we've become these last 4years.
65 plus points must be the minimum target.

2.) 05 Aug 2020 18:35:50
Good reply toffeeapple.

Looks like Sigurdsson is well liked by Carlo so as you say hope he has a Renaissance.

If we can clear some of the others and bring in 1 or 2 first choice players that will be good. However the mess we got into with recruitment won’t be solved in this window alone.

I think a push for top 8 and actually try and win some silverware with a trip to Wembley in either cup would be a good season.

Lets hope we see an improvement this season.

3.) 05 Aug 2020 19:42:23
I expect it to be slow but progressive, we have a crop of good young players who will learn a lot next season, if rumours are true players like ivanovich bring experience and knowledge, I wouldn't be too disappointed with a top 10 finish as long as the performance improves steadily. There is no magic wand we as supporters just need to watch this team mature. But we are fickle when we need patience.

4.) 05 Aug 2020 21:49:13
For me the first 10 games are about getting results and not being dragged into a relegation scrap and going from there. With are current squad I’m rather worried at the moment tbh.

5.) 06 Aug 2020 09:47:49
Top 10 would be okay if we still have the current squad.

6.) 10 Aug 2020 17:09:37
A lot of people saying top ten, well that wouldn’t be much of an improvement in my opinion we weren’t that far of it season just finished and we were awful.

If you can’t get excited about wining a derby at Anfield then don’t but a lot of us are, we have made huge strides this season, but ending a record like we have in this fixture is massive, it is a sign of mentality changing and Carlo deserves huge credit, consistency is the key now and then go again in summer with adding bit more quality.

When I watched something on tv on Brands it was very clear he leaves some kind of legacy, all previous clubs speak highly of him, I just don’t see Brands leaving our project while he is just starting what he came to do and has stated that he wouldn’t be the right person if this was a quick turnaround always spoke about 5 year projects to achieve objectives.

Pickford needs dropping and made to fight for his place, the other 10 players got him out of trouble tonight that won’t always happen in prem. yes back pass was short but kick it with your right, clear the danger.

Wages are the problem, we know we’re not going to be raising much money from sales certainly not to fund new players, I don’t know how serious we are regarding Allan and Dacoure are but that’s going to cost 50-60m now if you think of players we want to off load, we ain’t going to bring that in to fund it, so it’s getting wage bill down reducing squad size and taking a hit with losses on these players.

I don’t know to be honest, sometimes players need that loan, but think it will all depend on what the player wants and how much we will let him go for, but I don’t think we get better than him for £45m.
If he wants out then yea take the cash and we have made profit which is what we have failed to do over the years.

Disappointed to go out the cup as I thought we had a chance but there are definitely signs were on right track had good start then followed a poor return of results few against teams we should be beating. But we come back with wins against Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal which was not expecting wins from all 3 but we are beating top, but to be in top 4 at Christmas is something I would of taken at start of season.

We should be looking to get in Europe and really trying to win this league cup, beat Utd and were in final, winning a trophy is massively important for our mindset regardless of the size of trophy, it’s something that you can win early on in season to finish league strongly.

Lots of rubbish spouted on here again 4 weeks ago everyone was over the moon now 3 losses in row and we are back to last seasons negativity, one window was not going to solve our problems, I’m as angry as anyone else not through the defeats but the fact we have not played with the same intensity and pressing as the first round of matches consistency is what separates the best from the rest, every team in this league is capable of beating each other as we all know, but constancy takes time and winning football matches when not playing well takes time everyone keeps going on about GK but central defence is still massive issue as 2 goals proved yesterday.
