Amazing how football changes over time. Rags now saying Arsenal and Spurs going to go up to 50m for Keane?
Few months ago we would probably been happy to see him go for 10.
Surely this shows that we have to be patient with the manager and payers now, give them time to develop as a squad.
Well gone Michael keep it going mate.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 19:13:07
Was the £50m rumours this morning for April fools day? 😬.

2.) 04 Apr 2019 13:45:16
Maybe not?

3.) 05 Apr 2019 11:19:45
Following Woburn post, Whether there are rumours regarding Arsenal or Spurs being interested in Keane remains to be seen. He is certainly a much improved player this season and one who we need to remain at Everton,
Everton now maintain they are not now a selling club, but if an offer as suggested was made it would be interesting. It is up to Everton to improve their league position quickly and challenge for top 4 and succeed in cup competitions to be able to keep top players. Keane, now established in the England squad will want to win those medals and if Everton can’t do it for him then look elsewhere. If that happened, then back to square one looking for a replacement.
The same goes for any top player.

{Ed002's Note - If Everton are not a selling club then Everton cannot be a buying club either.}

4.) 05 Apr 2019 15:14:08
All clubs are selling clubs, otherwise nobody would ever move. It’s all about the money offered.

5.) 06 Apr 2019 09:25:22
Obviously all clubs sell players. My post was meant to read that Everton were having to sell to survive / pay the bills etc, which no longer applies.

6.) 14 Apr 2019 12:46:08
Not a case of sell to survive but basic economics and running a business. Contrary to the hype Mr Moshri has not put millions of his own money into purchases, what he has done is enable the Business to service debt/ deficit I. E. Income and spend on an even keel.



10 Feb 2019 00:00:33
The results almost inevitable. This is a team in free fall and the manager does not have the ability to stop it.
That said there is no point changing anything now. Use the time we have till the end of the season to find a winner and build from there. Brands has a big job on his hands. Time he started earning his money.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 10:05:15
How do you know he isn’t earning his money? I can’t see what he does daily, maybe you can, I don’t know. But he is a proven DoF who can’t bring success in 1 season.

Maybe he is working his socks off but finding it difficult due to the manager not delivering? Sometimes the long processes that require our patience are the ones that bring richer rewards.

2.) 10 Feb 2019 13:53:13
Calm down son we’re all entitled to our opinion. And I would imagine as the DOF he will not be best pleased with what he is seeing. So step in and sort it out. We are likely to finish bottom half of the table, if we carry on like that next season we will be relegated. That’s the reality of it.

3.) 13 Feb 2019 14:10:58
How does he sort it out Woburn?
He is not the manager and is not on the training field - and nor should he be.
His job is to identify players we need, to manage the Scouting, to ensure that all age grouyps across the club have a similar philosophy.

He said when he took the post that he had told FM that if he wanted a quick fix he was not the man. And i'm pretty sure that hasn't changed.



23 Dec 2018 23:44:40
This team has not recovered since the derby defeat. The players are playing with a lack of belief. It was very evident today that we were being torn apart in midfield, thus putting pressure on a defence that is already rocky at best. Playing two wide players gave them the freedom of the park, something that could and should have been rectified before there first goal. It wasn't so that has to be down to the manager.

Hopefully he will learn from this and will now see who is up for it and who isn't. Otherwise it's back to square one again sadly.


1.) 24 Dec 2018 08:40:16
Having calmed down (and less wife beater in my system) , have to be more objective. No I am not calling for Silva's head (yet) , I didn't want him in the first place for reasons historical but he is here now so let's see how the next few games go. Seen various reports on the game but one in particular was spot on. Where we are at this stage it was and is quite naive if not stupid to try and take a Team like Spurs on at their own game, you have to play ugly football if need be and by that, negate and deny space. Forget which of you posted it by the way but the comment 'would rather go down than watch the football Alardyce played' is at best not worthy of a real supporter. Can't promise to be all Mr Sunshine and Rosy Glasses but I can sincerely wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.

2.) 24 Dec 2018 09:46:15
I wrote that I would prefer to go down than watch Alardyce’s football.

I stand by that. Any FOOTBALL fan from any team would agree. It’s about entertainment, it’s about having a go. it’s about being excited about match day.

Yesterday was tough to watch but still miles better than having no shots at goal in a match. If we go down (which we won’t) I’ll still be supporting the club I love. Would you? As you’d prefer to watching big sam’s hopeless boring dross than be relegated!

In my personal opinion and we are all entitled to ours, your either still on the wife beater or on the wind up or in need of the men in white Coates.

Not a real supporter. hahaha

Have a great Xmas every football fan, but you blues have an extra special one.

3.) 24 Dec 2018 19:51:41
WOW, PrestonBlue! Rather go down than watch Alardyce football, awful and naive comment. Have you asked other football fans? think they would disagree with you.

4.) 24 Dec 2018 22:58:30
Have a good Christmas ktf, you need some cheer.

Awful and naive in your opinion which is moo. Moo! you know like a moo point. Moo! Like a cows opinion, it doesn’t matter.

Happy Christmas to everyone and a special thanks to all the ed’s For their fantastic insight and opinion.



04 Feb 2018 15:47:14
Rumour Utd looking at Pickford if they lose degea. Well if Sam is still here in the summer he will probably sell him.
Allardyce is a Championship manager at best, and is clearly out of his depth with us.
If we are going to spend big in the summer, then we need to do it on a manager. One with a history of winning, and who has a history of winning.
Not one who has a history of keeping teams up, and believes a draw is a good result.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 22:22:00
Who could blame PIckford for moving to a club that wins trophies and regularly plays Champions League football?

2.) 05 Feb 2018 06:41:33
We will probably lose Lookman, Davies and Vlasic as well. Especially if SA stays.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 11:25:07
Vlasic can go along with B.S.
Pair of charlatans.

4.) 05 Feb 2018 19:34:18
Don't get Vlasic know he's young but light years behind lookman and defensively exposes our fullbacks.

5.) 06 Feb 2018 14:59:37
Vlasic exposes the fullbacks because he isn't a winger, he plays central and that is why he drifts inside all the time. The lad has talent but again is being mismanaged.



15 Aug 2017 23:38:02
Sigurdsson, Rooney, Keane, Klassen, Pickford and Ramirez so far. How can anybody complain about any of that. A striker and a centre back now would finish it off nicely. Oh and don't forget we have Coleman and Bolasie coming back. 👍👍.


1.) 16 Aug 2017 07:28:42
It's been a really good window for me WB. Even if we don't get another striker, I think the squad looks good.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 07:35:35
It nicely put there Woburnblue.

3.) 16 Aug 2017 14:32:02
Need a striker without a shadow of doubt, at the moment we can cope with Williams and Keane in the backline, but for me a striker is a must.

Would signing Welbeck just be like signing another Walcott. Great players in there day but have those days gone?


1.) 24 May 2019 18:58:03
Could probably do a job for us and may teach DCL a thing or two.
On a free not a bad shout but can’t see him being a long term solution however may be a decent stop gap until hopefully we get European football and are then a more attractive proposition for players.

2.) 24 May 2019 19:05:27
I reckon he's got more goals in him than all our current strikers, but with his injury history, surely we should be looking at alternatives. Like you say, there's is a good chance we would end up with another Walcott situation.

3.) 24 May 2019 19:45:49
I'd love to have Welbeck but only if he can stay fit.
He is the type of striker we should be looking at, strong, with a great engine and can get 15 goals a season if he stays fit.
On a free and as a replacement for Niasse or Tosun then it's a no brainer.

4.) 24 May 2019 20:29:30
Agree excellent signing if Marcel can get him in.

5.) 24 May 2019 22:20:38
Nah, not for me. Doesn’t seem worth it paying high wages for someone who’s unlikely to be our first choice striker.

6.) 25 May 2019 21:56:53
If welbeck was foreign everyone would say he is a flop. He is injury prone and very rarely scores. He’s got WestbHan written all over him.
English players get over hyped - look at Jessie lingard - people saying he is young and will break through - the guy is 26! Again rarely scores - look at welbecks stats before anyone suggests signing him.
We already have Naisse, Sandro, DCL and Toson to fill role of strikers who rarely score - we need a 15-20 goal a season - Abraham for me. Honestly stay clear of mitrovic - watched him play loads - makes Lakaku first touch look like a magnet 🧲.

7.) 26 May 2019 10:56:06
Rather we sighned British players all day long because they have backbone and steel most Euro players do not.

8.) 26 May 2019 15:22:09
Backbone and steel are not words that anyone could describe Danny Wellbeck with - come on!



08 May 2019 22:05:43
Watched the U23 tonight win the cup and do the double. Could only see two out the side who might kick on in the future to first team. Feeney and Bowler.
Feeney a natural defender and leader. Bowler very classy well balanced player. The get you on the edge of your seat type.
Tonight is about the team though. Well done to all, first to do League and Cup double. 👏👏👏👏.


1.) 08 May 2019 22:35:21
Never got there tonight, Woburn, but that Bowler is going to be some player I think. Feeney needs to beef up a bit but could turn into a class player, Gibson is the only other one that is ready for first team exposure. I'd promote Bowler and loan out the other two to see how they get on away from reserve team football. Congratulations to all involved with the U23's, tremendous season for them all.

2.) 09 May 2019 09:07:45
bowler feeney and gibson the three for me also.

3.) 09 May 2019 16:38:37
Astley hasn't put a foot wrong whenever I have seen him an I may be wrong but am sure he's only 16/ 17 he's gunna one to watch also Anthony Gordon I think he could make it and lastly Nathan broardhead looks good every time I seen him play.

4.) 10 May 2019 10:23:05
Bowler looks like he may be a good option to replace Wallcot in the near future. May be a great foil of the bench if Ricky is continued on the right. To me he looks like a better long term option than Lookman playing RM. Will be interesting to see what happens in preseason with some of the current U23 squad as a whole.



21 Apr 2019 15:48:21
Well that was well worth waiting for. Thought the lads controlled the game from start to finish. Shame Sky only want to talk about how poor Utd were, and not how well we played. Four cracking goals, and chances for more. Perfect bank holiday so far.


1.) 21 Apr 2019 17:33:35
I was discusted with Sky only talking about about how badly United played, not how well Everton played, are best performance of the season.
We have beaten Chelsea, Arsenal and Man U can we get motivated for the other less fashionable games like at Palace next week? If Silva can motivate them we may be at the start of something.
Enjoy the rest of Ester lads.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 18:43:35
Sky are brazen about their elitist approach to the top six of the premier league. Their advocating it as the best league in the world because everyone is capable of beating each other at any given weekend is just hypocritical. The pundits are all Liverpool or Man Utd players and the way they dealt with the Carragher incident last season is an abhorrence.

I hate the fact that it’s the main platform for live football.

3.) 21 Apr 2019 18:54:04
You would think they would talk up how well we played and that it made United look that bad,
It was such an amazing game and the old lady was rocking so much we could feel it down here in the south!
Digne was amazing! My son is a late starter in football terms only in his second season at the age of 10 but Digne has been inspirational, for a child with autism he makes it easier for my son to understand the role by watching him.

4.) 21 Apr 2019 20:28:38
Southern, yep mate have a neice.

5.) 21 Apr 2019 22:04:10
It's the way some people are Woburn. Some of our own fans will only point to how bad the opposition were. They won't even congratulate the team when they play like this.



07 Apr 2019 18:10:05
A lot of talk about needing a new striker next season, and maybe we do. But if we can get Zouma and Gomes tied down and nobody else I would be happy.
Get them two and keep Gana. Those three are essential to this side.


1.) 07 Apr 2019 18:28:19
Gomes has to be the priority. We aren't going to get a player of his class for the 30 million Barcelona want for him.
Bernard has to be the buy of the season. Free transfer! He is such a class player, one that we haven't seen at Everton for quite a few years.

2.) 07 Apr 2019 19:18:47
Depends if there is a buy clause in his loan deal. Gomes recent form added to that when he arrived may mean Barcelona wanting a great deal more than 30, especially as a few other top sides are sniffing.



25 Mar 2019 21:39:05
Well done Keane, getting his confidence back. Every game he plays for his country is a massive bonus to us. Keep it going son.

DCL shouldn’t be going anywhere. Deserves another season with the first team, even if it’s coming on as sub in the last 15mins. His pace still rattles defences, and he will get better.

Don't believe Bernard's was as easy as you think. Felt the keeper closed him down really quick and gave him little to aim at. Would rather focus on how he read what the defender was going to do to get himself in that position.
The goals will come as the confidence builds. And on a final note it's nice to have a manager who shows passion on the touch line. Long may it continue.

He played against two experienced defenders and both of them were booked because he worried them the whole game. This allowed others to get into scoring positions. For a kid of 22 that's quite impressive.

Would be interesting to see what he would be like with another decent striker up there with him. Oh for Sharpe and Gray.
