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.

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.



06 Mar 2018 15:05:23
I wonder who would win out of our U23s v First team.


1.) 06 Mar 2018 16:47:00

2.) 06 Mar 2018 16:56:57
u23 by a mile, hard work beats talent and those under 23s are a group that play together.

3.) 06 Mar 2018 17:05:49
U23s easily.

4.) 06 Mar 2018 17:12:19
They also have talent.

5.) 06 Mar 2018 22:01:09
Think Danny mills on 5live last night during utd game made a great point.

Hard work beats talent if talent doesn't work hard.

Kinda relates to our squad. We have some great players who need to work a lot harder to win and keep the ball.

6.) 07 Mar 2018 01:30:09
The first team would defeat the U23s imho, as, no matter how bad our first team are and how “together” our U23s are, the gap between the two levels is massive.

7.) 07 Mar 2018 07:23:00
The U11's would give our first team a run for their money the way we are playing this season.

8.) 07 Mar 2018 07:44:46
hard one to answer that i think a full u23s with the players out on loan back in there like dowell and robinson would be a very close game but right now the first team would nick it i think but it would be very close the passing and movement from the 23s is exceptional and they battle for everything.

9.) 07 Mar 2018 08:34:27
wouldn't say massive at all bobby, very talented set up we have with a great forward line including sambou Hornby and henen including a core of feeney adeniran.

10.) 07 Mar 2018 10:46:56
wblue i agree mate ad to that the likes of captain Evens an young Beni and that rb markelo looks good aswell i really do think our future is very bright indeed.

11.) 08 Mar 2018 01:07:22
eBlue: for all their undoubted promise, I maintain that the step up from U23 to first-team football is massive - physically, mentally, technically and tacticslly - which is why very few (maybe 1 or 2 every other season) have actually made it as regular PL players.

12.) 08 Mar 2018 13:38:48
People talk about Gardiola Teams but the thing they have above all else including Talent is hard work and 100 percent effort. You don't give that in a Gardiola Team and you are out. For us Schneiderlin, Williams in particular do not put in the effort and that allied to loss of form resulted in them being the cause of quite a few points. Alardyce needs to look beyond his stubborness and prove he is not the same as Martinez or Koeman. Yes believe in your abilities but have humility as well. One of the strongest assets of good Management is the ability to delegate and that happens through listening.

4pts out of 9 is average but we have to give this time, if you take Man City and Liverpool out of the equation as they are on a different level to everyone else, there is not much between the rest of the teams all have weaknesses as we do, but there is no reason why we can't compete with rest, all have weaknesses even though spurs and arsenal have some big players but they are weak as we have seen already this season that's why friday nights game was so frustrating especially with the performance our midfield looked slow and over run against average team.
Gomez was not fit and Davis should of played to give us some energy.




23 Aug 2019 17:25:26
I know it's early days but we must be wining games like tonight if we are serious about top 6 we have a hard December this season and that period could define if we improve on last season.


1.) 23 Aug 2019 22:07:58
Manager at fault persistent playing of DCL also to many poor performances tonight siggy Gomes richarlison snidest to name the most obvious we played a poor villa that will battle relegation and looked lacking in quality we are no where near top six when you can only score one goal in three games!

2.) 23 Aug 2019 21:57:49
Completely agree mate. Very poor in midfield tonight.

3.) 23 Aug 2019 21:58:19
Oh dear dear me. Another must win game lost.

4.) 23 Aug 2019 22:33:33
No way near top 6. I just can't understand why DCl keeps getting played.

{Ed0666's Note - nor do I

5.) 23 Aug 2019 23:30:51
Midfield was non existent today every turn over we were lost. Gana anyone? DCl cannot start another game after that miss. People say there’s three people on the line but the whole of the left side was gaping. Awful from us.

6.) 23 Aug 2019 23:55:35
Don’t know how anyone can blame Silva? The only decision he’s got wrong is still playing DCL but I can understand (but don’t agree) not wanting to throw Kean in fully too. DCL didn’t lose us that game tonight it was the 5-6 players who didn’t turn up and when that many players don’t turn up what can the manager do?
For me he made the changes I would of chasing the game maybe left Bernard on for DCL but was chasing the game and went 2 up top so understand choice. Nobody on the bench to replace Gomez so don’t understand anyone moaning about Manager.

7.) 24 Aug 2019 01:05:22
Davies was on the bench wasnt he? An the manager is at full fault for that he picks his team and his bench, DCL could still be playing now on his own and still wouldn't score why isn't Tosun getting a look in when DCL jas had 1 shot all season.

8.) 24 Aug 2019 07:51:18
Davies was on the bench. Personally I'd have taken DCL and gomes off at half time. Brought Kean and Davies on and kept the same shape. Then later on Iwobi.

9.) 24 Aug 2019 11:20:11
Onwards and upwards . let's use the Lincoln game to try something new . score goal
Last night was disappointing mainly because there seemed a lack of passion to put it right after going a goal down, besides Seamus kicking Trezeuget up in the air and Mina having a South American stand off with Wesley I get concerned by the lack of bite.
Don't think Silva is going to change his style of play but maybe a change of personnel in certain positions is worth trying.
I'd give Sidibe a start in front of Seamus, he has played there before, I'd agree with giving Bernard a game in a 10 role, his lack of pace and power wouldn't be as noticeable there and his trickery would help the striker.
Kean must start and Iwobi on the left, if Gbamin has recovered get him back in. Gomes was non existent but I'd still start him over Schneiderlin because he is still our 1 effective creative midfield player, put last night down to a bad day in the office.
Wouldn't blame the defence too much as they handled what was a pretty mobile AV front 6 with no help from midfield.



09 Aug 2019 15:33:57
What I do like about our attacking players is they are very adaptable so plenty of games where not going to plan we our able to change shape or switch positions.




09 Aug 2019 14:05:50
My god pundits talk rubbish at times, some saying we have not strengthened we have lost one regular first team player, not counting Zouma as he was not ours anyway and we have brought in 6 players that are 1st team ready players how is that not strengthened.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 15:43:58
Apparently until yesterday Gary Neville didn't even know that we signed Kean according to ped from toffee tv.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 17:54:50
They are all too busy raving about Leicester who didn't replace Maguire.



08 Aug 2019 18:48:49
A lot on here need to calm down we have had a good window, the players we lost were Gueye, jags and lookman and only one of them was a regular starter. We are ready to start season on Saturday so let's get off too a good start and stop all the negativity about today, if Brands thought the Zaha deal was not right for club then that is exactly why we brought him in.

Ridiculous post we are not behind them, I have not seen anything from Utd to suggest they are any better, wolves are a very good team and had a great season but I think playing in Europe will have an effect on them at some point in the season, our major problem last season was what Marco picked upon that December to February was our most costly period in terms of pts picked up, the Liverpool defeat was damaging as we did not recover from that game even though the performance was good and it was ironic that the following fixture spurred us on to some great performance s and results. We need to convert more of our chances to win more games, we had joint 3rd most clean sheets with 14 and have 2 so far this season so defensively I think we are pretty solid.
I think top 4 is not going to happen but top 6 is a yes from me this season.

Iwobi is a good player and needs playing, He was in and out of Arsenal team, we have improved our team, cb was not solved but we have not seen best of Mina yet, we have had a good window I’m really excited to see what Kean will give us.

CD market is not great time to buy and 40m will be a struggle to get anyone that will be decent, loan is our best option.

I’d rather pay 100m than pay 30m for Iwobi, Smalling on loan, these bids don’t stack up considering we have been bidding for Dacoure and Zaha.

How many RW do we need Richarlison Walcott if we brought in another one we surely would of got rid of Walcott, lookman left and Iwobi came in.

You honestly believe Brands brought Mina on the strength of a goal seriously, Brands is a top football man with an outstanding knowledge of the game, it’s insulting to think he took that approach.
