Heard from a mate who works at the ground that there was a bit of a spat after the game between Rodriguez and Richarlison. Maybe just a bit of South American passion?

Woburnblue

1.) 31 Jan 2021 13:13:23
Could have done with a bit of passion on the pitch Woburn.


2.) 31 Jan 2021 13:49:33
He was probably hoping Richy would run into space at some point.


3.) 31 Jan 2021 15:01:07
Or maybe he was showing him what it's like to get kicked and not just pretend you have been kicked.


4.) 31 Jan 2021 20:41:35
Might be wrong but it looked like Rodriguez was having a go during the game shouting “ why is it always down to me” “up to me”.

Given the current climate I just can't see how we can bring more players in without selling first. The club like all clubs must be losing money. So it makes no sense to spend more at this time.
However, if they could sell Kean, Bernard and Bolasie. Then they could generate the funds for say a new right back or striker.
So it's understandable why the loan rumours are flying around again.
The way I look at it is if we bring loans in to strengthen the team then great. But if we don't then that's fine too, because as a squad we have improved as the season has progressed, and so European football would still be possible.
Stay positive, stay safe💙.

1.) 20 Jan 2021 14:33:35
The only players I can see possibly leaving in this window are Kenny and Bernard. The players we need to sell or get rid of are Besic Bolasie as they are not even in the squad. Both probably aren't bothered about playing as their wages are pretty tidy and an extra six months sitting out matches wouldn't be too much of a hardship for them.


2.) 21 Jan 2021 08:57:57
Woburn, all clubs will be loosing money, therefore nearly all clubs will be looking at loan players to come in or buy at below market value so for Everton to hope to sell players at current market value is nigh impossible I feel. Everyone needs to be patient I feel for the next 12 months before we get back to some normality. At least if they can loan players and get them off the payroll will be a bonus.


3.) 21 Jan 2021 11:40:46
Thought that’s what I was saying?


4.) 21 Jan 2021 22:06:50
I think I was agreeing with you.


 

 

04 Oct 2020 22:12:00
I believe Brands has pulled off another master stroke here with Moise.
He's put him with the best team in France, in a league that is not as hard as the Prem. And with no option to buy. Therefore if he does well then his resell value will rocket. Better to do that than sell him at a loss now.

Woburnblue

1.) 04 Oct 2020 22:16:43
If he can't do it in the French league, playing for a team head and shoulders above the rest we may be stuck with him till his contract runs down.


2.) 05 Oct 2020 05:36:38
Even if he struggles in France, Juventus will still want him back because he’s a young Italian who gets into the national team, that will always be appealing to them.


3.) 05 Oct 2020 07:20:46
He needs to be in the team to prove his worth, he wouldn’t get in above our front three. Does he get into PSG’s team over Neymar, Martinez, DiMaria, Draxler? Or is he moving from bench to bench?


4.) 05 Oct 2020 16:26:57
Yeah that's what I thought JB. I thought he was home sick and wanted to play, so going to PSG makes no sense to me. But what do I know? I'm just happy he is gone, even though it's temporary.


 

 

29 Aug 2020 17:38:39
If it's true that Brands has managed to get Rodriguez on a season long loan then kudos to him.
Good deal all round. We get to see if he can handle Prem without shelling out a big transfer fee, which given his age we would likely never have gotten back.
Move on to Dacoure and Allan now and make them happen please Marcel.

Woburnblue

1.) 29 Aug 2020 18:48:10
Where did you see that mate?


2.) 29 Aug 2020 19:28:10
Talksport.


3.) 29 Aug 2020 19:30:05
Woburn
It’s more than likely there is a buy clause at the end of the loan.
Can’t see Real Madrid allowing him to run down the last year of his contract and become a free agent.
More likely it is a delayed purchase to ease our ffp situation
In any case it is a great signing and I can’t wait to see his impact on the teams performance.


4.) 29 Aug 2020 20:03:03
Which is still good for us Fancy, because if he can’t hack it or is hampered by injuries then we do a Sidibe.


5.) 29 Aug 2020 20:42:03
Isn't he a free agent end of season so if everyone's happy sign to 2 or 3 more years.


 

 

26 Aug 2020 14:21:54
If Schalke are still interested in JJK but don't have the money, and we apparently are interested in Weston McKennie. Then surely their is the potential for a swap deal to be made?
However, think if this did happen then Davies would be gone as we could potentially end up with a midfield of, Allan, McKennie, Gomes, and possibly Dacourue and Rodriguez. Oh and Sigurdsson.
Just writing that sounds crazy. But it might happen.

Woburnblue

{Ed002's Note - That won't be happening, sorry.}


1.) 26 Aug 2020 14:41:19
Does anyone know when the last players were swapped? Maybe I've missed this common transaction but I can't remember a "swap" in the Premier league. I could be wrong so I'm interested to know.


2.) 26 Aug 2020 15:32:29
was mkhitaryn and sanchez a swap or something very similar.


3.) 26 Aug 2020 15:39:42
Sanchez for Mikhatyrian or however you spell it?


4.) 26 Aug 2020 15:41:42
McKennie going Juve on loan.


5.) 26 Aug 2020 16:11:58
I would like to see us loan Schalke Davies if Weston goes. Hopefully Davies would improve his game being away from the pressure of paying for his home team. This would either make him good enough to keep or hopefully drum up interest and value from other sides for a sale.

Ok so I'm just going to put this out there. People getting excited about the names we have recently been tagged too. Aguero, Moutinho, and now Bale. All great players.
But here is my concern. They are all players of a let's say older age. Including Allan and James, who not as old appears to be made of glass.
Now my question is this. Is Carlo looking to put a team together for short term success, while Brands does his job of trying to get the best young talent for the future.
Or is Carlo looking to put a team together for short term success, because he is not capable of building a team for the future?
Just a thought.

Woburnblue

1.) 04 May 2021 18:06:47
I think he's capable of putting together a squad for the long term tbh, Woburn. I read an interview with him not so long ago that talked about the end of his contract. It expires the same season that we're expecting to move into the new ground and he stated that he wants to be leading the team into Bramley-Mooore Dock. Or words to that effect!
I seen the Bale link earlier and just thought it was lazy journalism. Same can be said over Aguero, although I'd seriously think about taking the latter for a season or two. Providing he can prove he is fit enough, he's had a few niggling injuries of late. That said, I still can't see us going for, or getting, him anyway! At the stage we are at as a club, wanting to break into the top four at least, then there is nothing wrong with signing older players. But that's only if they have something to offer and not here for a final payday.


2.) 04 May 2021 18:42:11
We need power and pace not arthritis and athletes foot.


3.) 04 May 2021 19:48:56
Smit 👏👏👏.


4.) 04 May 2021 20:55:42
I’d be surprised if either player would end up at Everton next season whether we’re interested or not.


5.) 04 May 2021 20:59:11
Stop talking about me Smit, although I could put in more effort than some of our players.


6.) 05 May 2021 06:01:49
Bale still has pace but wages and glamour may deter. He is not the fit we want at the moment. We need a good RW, RB, CB and midfield ball carrier.


7.) 05 May 2021 13:08:20
There's nothing wrong with buying someone who is in the latter stages of their career as long as they add something to the team and helps us get up the table but it is up to CA to balance the squad so that the youngsters can also come through
I can't say I'd be that enamoured with Bale but if Aguero could give us 15-20 goals for a couple of years why not?
Personally though, if we go for an elder player, I'd like to see it in CD. I've seen it work there with the likes of Evans or Dawson and I think it might give us a bit more on-field leadership that I feel we lack. Maybe that's why we've been linked with Koulibali in the past.

{Ed002's Note - There is no chance of Aguero moving to Everton from Manchester City. Bale is a player that Ancelotti knows well and likes. The issue would be his wages - which even taking him on loan, means paying out more than €250k per week.}


 

 

02 May 2021 19:55:20
So in a must win game we start with one striker and then bring on another midfielder as our first change.
Hate this one up front set up. Need two strikers at home and play a 442. Our goal difference is abysmal because we rely on one striker, so when he's off form we struggle.
And can someone please tell me how Iwobi even makes the squad? Niasse was better than him, and he was crap. But at least he had a go.
Really have no affection for this team at the moment, and would not shed a tear if six or seven of them went.
Totally depressed with this team right now, and can't wait till seasons over.

Woburnblue

1.) 02 May 2021 20:22:29
Trouble is mate 6 or 7 of the Team are simply not good enough.


2.) 02 May 2021 20:34:10
And you know what GB many of them are our top earners. Siggy, Mina, Bernard to name a few.


3.) 02 May 2021 20:51:23
Exactly mate not rocket science and Carlo will be moving some of these this summer.


4.) 02 May 2021 21:25:13
I do think the problem lies with the players not being good enough. You can see there’s no creativity or ideas when the likes of james isn’t on the pitch. Remember when Martinez tried to get us to play like Barća with the likes of Hibbert, Gibson and McGeady in the side? CA is managing to get some results with this poor squad and imo, we have overachieved this season.


5.) 02 May 2021 23:09:23
I am sick of people saying we’ve overachieved. No we haven’t, our football is bloody awful to watch, we have no leadership on the pitch, we are quite possibly the slowest forward playing team in the league, and we are getting worse.
We haven’t overachieved, we have stood still, and so another season goes by but hey we’re still building. Again.

{Ed0666's Note - Carlo out or Carlo in Woburn?


6.) 03 May 2021 10:45:31
Ed to reply to your question. I am undecided right now. Some of his decisions have baffled me, and I worry about the age of some of the players we are bringing in. Are we going to end up as one season wonders? Highly likely if we carry on targeting 29/ 30 year olds.
And before people start saying, but these players are quality. They where in their day but now their coming to ye end of their careers in one of the hardest leagues.
When Brands was brought in his goal was to reduce the size of the squad, and bring in young talent. However, we now have players running down their contracts, so going for nothing. And have no youth players making it into a very poor first team as starters.
So have we, will we really improve over the long term. Or do we as I say settle for that one big season then start all over again?

{Ed0666's Note - I know this is gonna sound unpalatable for you but even before you hired Carlo I felt you needed Benitez to solidify you and I still have the same thought. Rafa on a a 3 year contract would be a wise decision. He’d bring out the best in DCL, improve the youth set up and although you’re football may not be that of Brazil 1970 he’d make you hard to beat. For me Carlo has no appetite to build a team anymore. Rafa is settled on Mersey side he comes with a lot of pluses


7.) 03 May 2021 13:37:11
I am not interested in where people have been before. Only interested in them having the ability to develop the club. Little worried about your thoughts on Carlo having the appetite to build a team, because I can’t find an argument against that.
I will be convinced if we start buying good players in the 24/ 26 bracket. Though it worries me when even now we are being linked with Aguero. Another player who has had his best years, and would again be a short term solution.


 

 

26 Apr 2021 20:58:51
Aarons or Lamptey?
I personally would go for Lamptey, rapid player who would give us great pace out wide.
Your thoughts gents.

Woburnblue

1.) 27 Apr 2021 02:08:10
Aarons because he can defend. Lamptey is great as a wing back, not as a right back, gets caught out far too much and his end product is lacking. He may be quicker than Aarons but a better footballer he is not.


2.) 27 Apr 2021 12:13:30
I also read somewhere that Carlo prefers taller backs and Lamptey is a bit short
I also agree Aarons is a better footballer
I have been watching a bit of that Djed Spence Ed002 mentioned, he looks a talent! Be a good cost effective option.


3.) 27 Apr 2021 13:24:22
Not really seen much of Aarons but have seen a lot of Lamptey. Also Coleman not exactly a giant in stature, though he is in heart.


4.) 27 Apr 2021 16:22:42
Personally, I think we might spread our net wider than just the UK. Carlo and Brands must, between them, be very aware of the talent around Europe.


5.) 27 Apr 2021 19:24:43
Coleman has about half a foot on lamptey
So do those others.


 

 

21 Apr 2021 12:11:27
I think they should have a bottom six. With the current bottom six clubs deciding their should be no relegation from the Prem, thus ensuring they always get their share of the money.
Now how do you think that would go down with teams in the Championship, and how boring would the Prem become with out the fear of relegation.
Ring any bells?

3.) 21 Apr 2021 14:36:24
Well thanks Brank. Makes a nice change from being called deluded😂.


4.) 21 Apr 2021 15:10:59
I don't think this should ever be regarded as ''old news' BCT as it seems a 'chronic' problematic issue, and sure to appear again in some form or other. So some 'treatment' or better still a cure would be the long term answer I feel.


5.) 21 Apr 2021 15:29:25
Probably me that called you deluded Woburn - did post a couple of days ago apologising for my live chat behaviour on Friday but suspect it got lost in all the super league posts. I wish I felt as positive as you guys do about us I honestly do! If we can get to 57 points this season that'll be 1.5 points per game which is exactly what we got under Carlo last season so at least that'd suggest we're not going backwards, and the football was already fairly woeful to watch so no change there either.


6.) 21 Apr 2021 16:08:45
We are all big boys Davey mate we all care about Everton.


7.) 21 Apr 2021 17:44:35
To be fair TD it could have been anyone on any day. But who cares it’s part and parcel of being a blue mate.


 

 

17 Apr 2021 09:05:08
Anyone else notice how loud Spurs players are when tackled. Wonder if that's something they work on in training?

Woburnblue

1.) 17 Apr 2021 10:35:23
For me its the worst part of the game as usually less than 1 minute later there running around again. I don't doubt if your clipped at full pelt it hurts but some of the play acting from all players including our own is embarrassing.


2.) 17 Apr 2021 13:54:46
In fairness Ricky likes to play on being hurt like the best of them.


3.) 17 Apr 2021 17:33:44
Seamus was also guilty when he went down like he’d been shot only to get up as quick as possible and chase after Rodon.

Let me think, keep Siggy and Gomes instead of Coutinho?
Mmmm going to have to mull over this one for a while.
Bye bye Siggy, bye bye Gomes.
Play 433
Richy-DCL-James
Dacoure-Coutinho-Allan
Digne-Demiral-Godfrey-Aaron’s.

Still don’t understand why it’s called “Champions League” when runners up get to play in it. If it was a true “Champions League” competition then only the league winners from each country would qualify. Oh no wait they had that once, now wonder why that got scrapped?

We will never know if our youngsters are good enough because we never play them.
People saying Simms isn’t as good as King? How would you know he’s never played in the first team. If ever their was a season to give youngsters a chance it’s this one.
Don’t send them out on loan, keep them around the first team and give them a go. You become the best by working with the best. Not sitting on a bench in Preston because a different manager has come in. What good is that doing that young lad.

I get the Italian of playing is to not concede, but you can play that way and still play entertaining football. Let’s face it how many people actually look forward to watching the team play right now? People keep saying we are short of players. Simms another two last night, would have been handy to have had him in the squad.
