Diego Costa anyone?
I know he's 30 but it would still make next season very entertaining for the fans. And he might just be the stop gap we need till we do either develop our own, or get the right player in.


{Ed002's Note - Would not be a shock to see an approach made - but the club need to consider the thoughts of the coach and DoF who would not be happy.}

1.) 06 Jul 2019 18:45:42
Any degree of truth to the reports that Moshiri wants to sign Diego Costa though Ed? He is definitely better than our current striking options in my opinion. As you say though it could be not to the wishes of Brands and Silva. I'd take him although hope he behaves himself. His on field antics are entertaining but he does sometimes go over the top.

{Ed002's Note - As I have said, I understand what is happening here and Moshiri is taking third party advice still and may well be calling the shots here - and if an approach is made Brands and Silva may not be happy. This is not a dissimilar situation to last summer.}

2.) 06 Jul 2019 18:52:44
Wouldn’t want us to go for him ageing high wages and no sell on value! The owner cannot go against marcel and Marco and rise upsetting them.

3.) 06 Jul 2019 19:23:17
This transfer would not be about sell on fee age wages etc he's a striker that's scored goals our league there's not many strikers available that have prem experience.

4.) 06 Jul 2019 19:50:57
Not sure why supporters worry about the finance of the club? We employ people to do that.

5.) 06 Jul 2019 19:53:16
You’ve got to remember Everton are a club with the potential to progress not even to succeed at the moment this means older experienced players who can with youth who might I think he’d be a great singing and send the right message that winner are wanted and expected at Everton. There is a massive lack of quality experienced strikers if he’s available grab him gives more time to find the striker for the future.

6.) 06 Jul 2019 20:17:42
I just can't see there being much to this story if we did go for Costa the fee would be very big but his wage demands would be huge as well then we would have trouble bringing in other players due to financial fair play rules. Moshiri also made a big point if reducing the wage bill by selling are poor buys and we haven't sold enough of are high earners as it is plus this story comes from daily mail which isn't the most reliable paper either.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained.}

7.) 06 Jul 2019 21:54:48
As I read the article in the echo, mr moshiri said he wants to make a marquee signing and it then says and that COULD be Diego Costa, not that he wanted to sign Costa big difference and I’m all for a marquee signing but suggesting that is Costa is speculative journalism
Big C.

8.) 06 Jul 2019 22:42:59
A marquee signing would be great but it needs to be who ever marcel and brands want as they know the type of player they want to fit into their system it should not be who the owner wants no matter how much money he’s pumping in, that’s a recipe for disaster.

9.) 07 Jul 2019 06:53:56
Why would we want to sign a big tent?

10.) 07 Jul 2019 09:12:40
What situation last summer Ed?

{Ed002's Note - With signings being demanded by the owner after asking an advisor.}

11.) 07 Jul 2019 11:19:25
Thought that was year before with buying 3 x no 10s etc. But I bow to your superior knowledge if I'm wrong ed.

{Ed002's Note - I was thinking of last season where a second LW arrived and money was wasted on Mina.}

12.) 07 Jul 2019 11:28:48
It’s an “in- tents” pressing game that Marco likes 😉
Big C.



01 Apr 2019 18:10:35
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.

It's bad enough watching a match that is bloody awful, and a team that's bloody awful without adding a system in that's bloody awful.
If that game was supposed to be an advert for how good the Premiership is then it failed miserably.
And it's not just Everton, the quality of football across the league is really poor. Sad to say but we have turned into the Scottish league, with only two decent teams in it, and the rest just making up the numbers.


1.) 06 Nov 2019 13:54:41
Yes Woburn, The gap has widened considerably and atm it is ''bloody awful''
Imho mate I think it's an anomaly a glitch if you like because unlike the SPL we have clubs like Utd, Spurs AFC and CFC will come back stronger too I think .
There are others with potential to gatecrash the party and stay there .
However your right, it is ''''bloody awful'''' as we type.



04 Nov 2019 11:32:59
Why did we spend all that money on Iwobi? He is another player who just drifts in and out the game. Him and Digne don't work, and we already had Tom Davies.
Should have spent the money on a striker not another Walcott.
And to those people slagging off Richarlison. Guy was playing up front on his own, and if you really look at the game the two Spurs centre backs were in to him every time the ball was played up to him, and he should have had a penalty.


1.) 04 Nov 2019 12:41:44
Come on mate, there's no defending the theatrics from Richarlison in almost every game, it's embarrassing. He goes down at the slightest touch and holds his face regardless of where he got 'hit', referees give him nothing because he is known for it. We all gave out stick to the likes of Suarez when they were doing it so we have to recognise it in our own players. It's something that the management should be working on with him but it has been going on since he joined. Good player but he needs to stop this immediately.

2.) 04 Nov 2019 12:59:04
Woburn 100% agree with you, I got slated a while over my opinion on Iwobi, I said why then he gives the ball away too easy in Dangerous areas of the pitch, didn’t need him, no pace for that left wing position and not strong enough for the middle role, waste of good money.

3.) 04 Nov 2019 14:30:31
Richarlison diving was a bit embarrassing, tbh I found it really annoying it just ended play and gave the ball back to spurs. I hope DCL and Tosun get there chance up top soon.

4.) 04 Nov 2019 16:21:09
'' tbh I found it really annoying it just ended play and gave the ball back to spurs. ''

I don't think you are alone there Chris .

''Guy was playing up front on his own''

Woburn, This ''Guy'' will be an opposing manager's dream come true if Marco persists with this folly, short of whacking him over the head with a corner flag, they can pretty much get away with stopping him as they wish mate!

5.) 04 Nov 2019 20:58:34
Blue he’s a winger not a centre forward, so play him on the wing.

6.) 04 Nov 2019 21:10:41
Yes, winger is best I agree Woburn.



01 Nov 2019 14:04:26
You know at this moment in time I hardly think it matters who we get as manager, because we have become use to getting rid of managers if they "don't perform".
So get Mourinho, get Benitez, get whoever. It really doesn't matter because after six months the fans will be shouting for their heads.
It's the same every time we appoint someone. It starts off this guy is class, just what we need etc. Then it's he's bloody awful, clueless, doesn't understand the club.
Personally I'm sick of it, sick of football in general, think the quality has dropped, and that the Premiership as it is is bloody awful.
Roll on the end of the season.


1.) 01 Nov 2019 18:01:00
Somebody needs a hug!

2.) 01 Nov 2019 18:48:21
Is that Woburn or Silva that needs the hug? 🤷🏻‍♂️.

3.) 01 Nov 2019 21:15:36
In a strange way I agree 😁.

4.) 02 Nov 2019 11:43:24
Who can argue with the sentiment? There's been a lot of talk of replacing Silva, same as we had with Allardyce, Koeman and Martinez. Lot's of unrest but no clear understanding of the way forward. No clear indication of who everyone wants.

Whether we stick with Silva or gamble on someone else I wish we could say OK that's it for the next two seasons - not start getting restless after a couple of matches because we look like Muppets when we do it.

5.) 03 Nov 2019 11:31:10
If they did their due dilligence and get it right in the first place you wouldn't have the unrest. Obvious to every man and his dog that Mr Silva cannot cut it in the Premiership. Can't make the game today, will find a pub where we are and cheer them on with the rest of you. If we win, I will (along with the rest) be chuffed to naafi break.



06 Oct 2019 16:51:13
What's even more annoying about all of this is that the league this year is bloody awful, and with just an average run we would have been top six.
Shows you just how badly the team really are playing. And to think only a few weeks ago we had the chance to go second.
We need to start playing two up top, and at least give opposing defenders something to think about. Sick of this one striker crap.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 18:47:40
Top 6 is wide open this season, big six really aren’t performing. Just not really going to capitalise on it the way we’re playing, big chance missed.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 19:03:39
This is the most damaging fact to the whole thing. We were looking to dislodge one of the top six and they’ve gone and done our job for us. But we have been so poo that we have allowed the likes of Crystal Palace to take our place.

I feel pretty despondent and let down.

Why is it that when we are good, everyone is better. Then when everyone is crap, we are worse?

3.) 06 Oct 2019 19:59:45
TA, hit the nail on the head there mate. For me, we got bought out two years too late for it to have much of an effect. Every prem team got a nice pot from the tv rights and we wasted crazy amounts on substandard players. The joys of being a blue!

4.) 06 Oct 2019 20:53:49
It’s so depressing BP. Fancy a pint?



23 Sep 2019 17:38:51
Swan while I agree that if we change manager (again) , that we need an experienced man in place. However whoever that is has to have a clear out of the "coaching" staff. Otherwise it's the same set up with just a different man in charge.


1.) 23 Sep 2019 17:53:13
I know. Big Dunc needs binning off too he is clearly just there to appease the fans.

{Ed025's Note - i have to agree swan, all that jobs for the boys malarkey is old hat now, all these freeloaders in the backroom staff have been perennial losers with us so dont offer much imo mate..

2.) 23 Sep 2019 17:54:23
Agree Woburn mate experience is very benifical but at least if it was Mikel you would have someone with vast experience of our Club, the last three couldn't be more distant, just my opinion lads.

{Ed025's Note - massive gamble for me GB even though he is doing very well at city, we need someone with experience and a winning mentality, there is a lot of talk in the city about mourinho being lined up but i dont know how true that is, i dislike the guy intensely but i can see the logic in it mate..

3.) 23 Sep 2019 18:15:36
Trouble is Ed mate we are never going to get a manager who all the fans will agree with, i agree Jose would be the most knowledgeable but its all the hassle he brings with him.

{Ed025's Note - im not his biggest fan at all GB as i have stated on more than one occasion, he is a miserable git and his teams play dour football but if we are looking for a serial winner at all costs i can see how his name will be mentioned mate..

4.) 23 Sep 2019 18:15:38
Man Utd have got OGS and he ticks those boxes . However they don't look like PL winners in fact they look atm like at best extremely mediocre .

5.) 23 Sep 2019 18:18:49
What has mourinho done for you to dislike him so much Ed?

{Ed025's Note - existed skylark, one miserable git who is an egotistical maniac who is really up himself and his teams play dour insipid football....but besides that i have nothing against the guy mate.. :)

6.) 23 Sep 2019 18:24:26
That's true Blue mate if Marco does go then its going to be a miracle to get the right guy.

7.) 23 Sep 2019 18:29:20
I would love Arteta to do well here I really would, him and Cahill succeeding would be excellent. But in the same way Monk, Unsworth, Kompany etc. Using ex players is great for feeling good but is it best for winning football matches?

This is the thing and I will use Liverpool as an example. Jurgen Klopp was available and they didn't care that it was halfway through the season, they binned a manager that nearly won them the league 2 seasons before because they seized a chance to get a great manager in.

They could've got Gerrard or Hypia which would've "felt good" but they would've had nowhere near the success Klopp has had. They as a club wouldn't accept anything but the best, which is ironically enough our motto but we don't stick to it. We have enough of the old boys club still associated with the club and it's achieved nothing.

{Ed025's Note - if we do get rid of marco i would hope the new guy who comes in has a new broom mentality, get rid of all the hangers on and appoint established coaches who can change the perennial loser mentality the club seems to have swan..

8.) 23 Sep 2019 18:31:29
And in terms of Mourinho, he is a winner which I want. My only issue is it's an extremely short term strategy as he will no doubt collapse in his 3rd season. I'm not too bothered about the style of play if it works, his Chelsea team with Costa as well as his Real Madrid team played excellent football. But I don't think we have the money to back what he would want to do to be successful. Massive risk but still less of a risk than Arteta.

9.) 23 Sep 2019 18:36:19
We definitely do not want to go with Dire Footy Ed mate.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately we have been going with it for a number of years mate..

10.) 23 Sep 2019 18:49:25
We have mate so let's get rid of that once and for all mate, there must be someone out there who can come in and get our Great Club back where it belongs Ed.

{Ed025's Note - im sure there is GB..

11.) 23 Sep 2019 18:57:00
Its like a Million Dollar Question Ed mate.

12.) 23 Sep 2019 18:58:57
ED if it is a choice of a serial winner and a serial escapologist, I will take Maureen and his moods any day lol.

{Ed025's Note - if he employed me as his life coach nick i could live with that mate.. :)

13.) 23 Sep 2019 19:21:46
Lol Mystic meg might help.

14.) 24 Sep 2019 21:44:38
Are we seriously blaming Big Dunc for our form the guy is a coach, personally think the physio or tea lady are the real root of the problem.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think its him per-se metz, its the jobs for the boys culture at the club which seems to irk people mate..
