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.

12 Aug 2019 17:29:31
Just a thought do any of you think playing Siggy a little deeper might improve his game? Have Siggy and Gomes in the middle with Gbamin holding. Iwobi and Richie out wide, and Keane up top.
So basically a 3 3 4 formation.


{Ed025's Note - deeper as in on the bench if he plays like he did on saturday woburn, he was not at the races but hes very good when on form..

1.) 12 Aug 2019 18:54:51
Have to admit Siggy was poor and deserved to be subbed, but he will come good as we know he can.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 19:07:16
Ask any Swansea fan and they will tell you that Siggy is always slow to get going at the start of every season. So that display didn’t surprise me. He will be his usual killer self come the start of winter. I hope.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 18:32:27
I know what you mean Ed, but his strength is his passing ability and vision. Think playing so far forward the game is just a little to quick for him, and with the pace of the front three he cut teams apart.

{Ed025's Note - its a fair point woburn mate..

4.) 12 Aug 2019 18:44:42
Hi Ed, I echo your thoughts with GS, when on form he is the ‘bees knees’ as the saying goes but dips dramatically when not. I’m still unsure if we have seen value for the money yet? Not to far off but was hoping for more (although we’ve had a turbulent time since his arrival) what you think?

{Ed025's Note - i think he is quality when he gets a lot of the ball blu, but sometimes the game passes him by and that was the case on saturday mate..

5.) 12 Aug 2019 20:44:46
One bad game doesn't make a bad player. He is still one of our best players and as has been said, will get up to speed.

{Ed025's Note - your right smit, lets hope he gets back on the bike against watford mate..

6.) 13 Aug 2019 20:00:35
can always play Bernard as the 10. Competition for all places, two for every position is the aim.

7.) 13 Aug 2019 20:03:25
As some others have said Bernard is more a creator (make something happen) player. The philosophy/ aim is to have two quality for every position. I see Bernard as a No:10 well able to slot in if siggy needs a rest.

8.) 15 Aug 2019 17:54:33

Wouldn't argue with that. I think Bernard could do the same job that Silva has done so tremendously for Man City. Mt only worry is the goals Siggy gets and that Silva gets for Man City. Bernard still hasn't found his shooting boots for us yet.



08 Aug 2019 21:07:14
Sick of all the moaners on here. New owner, new ground and new and better players. Yet we still have people on here slating the club.
If I was the owner I would sell up and buy Newcastle, they would appreciate him there. You lot don't deserve him.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 21:22:04
Can never please everyone Woburn I'm made up with the way everything is going, yes we should have got a CB but think about our starting 11 plus subs on Saturday compared to a few years ago, can't wait till Saturday 3 points to us.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 21:41:27
Im really happy, obviously Zouma in would've been perfect, but sometimes you can't have everything, I think we made the right choice in not signing Rojo, better to wait until January for a player who can really make an impact in the squad. as for the fans complaining, i seen a post before about the summer we signed Drenthe and Straq, that was not even 10 years ago and what is happening now seemed like an impossible dream. Moshiri, and more recently Brands, are the best things to happen to Everton in my lifetime, and missing out on one CB is not going to change that. one last thing, I reckon Iwobi at £35 mil is a better deal long run than Zaha for £80mil or whatever they we asking for.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 21:52:27
I know Woburn where you are coming from some of the comments I don’t get about slating the club etc. however playings devils advocate. I ain’t seen no stadium yet, ( will happen I know) ’ and if I was the owner I would have never have sanctioned moves for Niasse, Tosun, full stop. Brought in Sam Allerdyce, but I ain’t the owner so I suppose we let the moaners moan and the supporters support mate 👍.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 21:53:36
Isn't Mangala in a free? I would rather go for him short term than spend millions on Rojo.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 22:43:10
Blue I’m just a grumpy old bugger who remembers the good time and the bad times. And yes the new owner got it wrong at the start and I can understand why. But now he has it right, and I think it’s about time people realised that.
Remember once a blue.



07 Aug 2019 23:18:15
I know we are spending a lot so far, but if you count our sales then we currently have a net spend of around 20m. We have offloaded a fairly large number fringe players, and will probably move a couple more on yet.
So for those unsure on how the club is developing have a look at our squad at the start of the 2017/ 18 season. Compare it with what we have now. Add Zaha for 80m?
Says it all really.




06 Aug 2019 07:05:42
You know if MK turns out to be the player everyone thinks he will be. Then in two to three years United would probably give us enough to build our new ground. 😂😂😂.


{Ed047's Note - nice one Woburn!😂

1.) 06 Aug 2019 10:15:50
Gone straight into my fantasy team with soggy and digne. Some good business so far. Quality players brought in. Do need cb and cover for Coleman. If we get that and zaha then what a window. Btw had 5 on us to finish top 4 at 16/ 1. More optimistic with every signing.



05 Aug 2019 14:32:24
Been away for a bit and see it's all kicking off now. Can someone give me a break down on what we have spent and why we have recouped. I know it means little, I just like looking at numbers is all. Ta.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 16:46:32
We have spent a shed load and recouped a barrow full.

{Ed025's Note - we have done some good business imo smit and the squad is shaping up very nicely 3 in and 3 out would be my guess mate..

2.) 05 Aug 2019 17:07:18
Thanks Smit that clears that up😂.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 20:13:09
Well Woburn when it comes to cash i'm your man.

For me he lacks one key element that all top strikers have. Anticipation, he is often caught ball watching as a cross comes in, and his movement in the box is limited. Dare I say it back in the day Rush was a great exponent of this A’s was Lineaker. They read the game well and always looked to get in front of the defender. Something DCL struggles to do.

As much as I like a healthy debate and often do disagree with DC. I have to say I agree with him about DCL. I am desperate for the lad to do well, but unless his movement in the box improves he won’t, and I could see him losing his place and not getting it back.

Smit some people don’t want Silva, and they are desperate to blame the manager when we don’t win. The fact we should have been at least two up by half time doesn’t matter. It’s his fault the guys missed those chances because he played the wrong formation? Really?
One game that’s all we have played, just one game. We didn’t lose away from home, and in the first half created some very good chances. We then lost our most influential midfielder and had a player sent off.
