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.

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.



13 Jul 2020 21:23:37
Just watching Southampton, this is a side that got beat 9-0 not long ago and are a transformed side. They don't have same quality as our squad well on paper anyway but how well they have recovered and where they are now is impressive, and all comes down to Hunger and hardwork, chasing players down goes along way.


1.) 13 Jul 2020 22:30:14
Spot on don't mind getting beat but going down with a fight but this lot are an embarrassment . We need someone who will tell them on the field when they aren't putting a shift in we are in desperate need of a leader . Paid a lot of money each week they should not need telling. if i was a owner i'd make them put 110% effort in. Let say they was a clause in each players contract that they had to run a certain distance each game or they will not get paid are lot would be outside the dole on breck road.



02 Mar 2020 21:49:53
How nice is it to see us attacking teams right to the end, a bit more quality added in summer and I think we will be in for a good season for once. Feel we have been tad unlucky to only take a point from last 2 games we have had chances to win both and that would of made the Chelsea game very interesting.




05 Feb 2020 17:44:19
Hirving Lozano, I know he has been linked in the past purely down to Brands links but now Ancelotti is here does are interest in him stronger, I get what brands says about paying lots for players that haven't played in prem but that goes for a lot of signings he has made I mean we paid 35m for Iwobi who let's face it was hardly a regular for Arsenal and Is no where near the quality of Lozano.


{Ed002's Note - Another LW for Everton - perfect.}

1.) 05 Feb 2020 21:51:49
Ed002 you should know by now Everton can never have enough left wingers!

{Ed002's Note - Eventually they will have them all and can control the market.}

2.) 06 Feb 2020 06:54:50
Long term financial planning? If we have all the left wingers in the world, we control their value?

3.) 06 Feb 2020 13:51:37
Is it feasible that Everton are going to buy 11 left wingers and when the new ground opens announce a new state of the art circular pitch.

4.) 06 Feb 2020 23:45:26
If you check the last election in Liverpool, the left wingers won every seat, maybe Moshi is onto something, cornering the market :-)



01 Feb 2020 14:56:00
I won't question Ancelotti but I think it's wrong to let Iwobi and Sigurdsson walk straight back into the team especially when Bernard and Kean were very good in last Match the last thing we want is for Kean to loose confidence, he must of been expecting to start today.


1.) 01 Feb 2020 15:00:43
Gotta say mate I agree eorhhe moise kean point, woukd of liked to see human dcl uofri t an and Richarlison wide right instead of Walcot,
Let see how it pans out.
I must be the only one who likes iwobi.

2.) 01 Feb 2020 15:29:02
Have to agree what is it with sigurdsson that allows him to keep getting picked terrible team selection for me.

Scottish league may not be greatest of standards but it’s a tough physical league maybe what he needs, but I don’t think he will ever be good enough for where we need to get too.

First and foremost our midfield needs a ball winner someone with legs, Gomez was miles better with If
Idrissa playing alongside him that is a fact.
Grealish is good but without ball winners he would be a pointless signing.


{Ed002's Note - Legs are better than leg.

Grealish is not moving to Everton.}

Your always going to have ones that slip through the net, look at how many in u21 that are potential first team but sadly only very few will play at first team level, I do hope we keep Kenny and don’t sign sidibe he is ok but don’t think he is massive improvement on what we have in our club.

Why do you think those 3 will be moved on, Coleman is club captain, Iwobi only recently purchased and I don’t see Everton giving up on him just yet and Walcott his good enough to come off bench but maybe not automatic choice, we need to get rid of players that we know won’t be involved or not get much game time, like Tosun and Sandro. I would say Davis but as it stands he is the only CM that’s fit and able to play week.

He has is own goals in life and wants to win things, he is currently playing for a bottom half table side his mentality is what’s lacking in our other players.
