Vardi being mentioned now? Guys 37 but weirdly I could see him and DCL being a good combination.
My biggest worry is with Vardi and Young we're looking at one season. Then a complete rebuild yet again.
Are the club just hoping to survive this coming season and get ffp under control, then kick on the season after.
I could believe this if it wasn't for the fact that I don't think our board are that clever.


{Ed025's Note - i cant see it myself woburn, his legs are gone and his tart is a friggin nightmare..

1.) 12 Jul 2023 18:12:12
Not for me.

2.) 12 Jul 2023 18:13:28
I know it's a simple mistake Woburn, but when you put Vardi, I could think only of Imre Vardi, and not Jamie Vardy ??.

3.) 12 Jul 2023 18:17:47
More likely Oliver.

4.) 12 Jul 2023 19:07:54
Not for he either.

5.) 12 Jul 2023 19:53:42
Dentielad I’ve reached a point we’re I would take anyvardy right now ?.



20 Mar 2023 10:14:50
We can't seriously be considering signing Antonio next season? The guy will be 33 .
If this was to happen then we have definitely learned nothing from our past mistakes. Just hope it's the papers stirring it because we have a young striker who actually might turn out decent, and that would upset some of the press boys.


1.) 20 Mar 2023 12:13:13
I saw article that said the Swedish striker from Coventry is also an option. He should be our 1st option, not Antonio. The hammers all time premier leading goalscorer on 59 goals. Bloody haarland nearly has that in his 1st season and its not over yet lol.

{Ed025's Note - i agree dentie..

2.) 21 Mar 2023 17:00:00
Doesn’t Simms deserve a run of games, he has all the physical attributes and a surprising turn of pace and just may turn out to be a serious option as striker.
He offers an awareness of what’s going on around him e. g. his first time ball to Decoure along with his ability to find space to attack following Decoure’s. sublime touch to him against Chelsea.
I don’t subscribe to the “” he’s only 22 let’s not push him” for those that have watched the 66 World Cup, a 21 year old Alan Ball run the show and was man of the match.
If you’re good enough age doesn’t matter.



25 Feb 2023 13:05:00
Just watching Gyokeres for Coventry. This lad is one powerful unit. May have missed the boat here. If we were in fact in for him that is.


{Ed002's Note - Viktor Gyokeres (S) Everton looked to him in the summer and they could look again as he is having a great season. Wolves interest will have gone with Cuhna signing. Leeds will look to him as a Bamford replacement and have approached Coventry with the signing of Rutter not impacting their interest. Coventry have resisted a sale up to now but you can expect him to make the move in the summer.}

1.) 25 Feb 2023 14:07:53
I'm watching too Woburn. Not so sure on him tbh. Looks a very low quality game.

2.) 25 Feb 2023 22:02:06
Maybe Chris, but you can’t knock the lads energy and commitment. I believe he would have made a huge difference to our forward line.

3.) 25 Feb 2023 23:02:36
Is he better than what we have?

If the answer is yes, we were fools to not try and get him in.

4.) 26 Feb 2023 11:05:28
He is better than what we have. The lad wants to win and his only thought when he gets the ball is to go forward. Also you play a poor pass to him and he bloody let’s you know.
He is far to good for the league he is in, and is basically dragging Coventry into a play off position.
I personally think he would have been perfect for us, and for what they were asking would have been a bargain.

5.) 26 Feb 2023 19:05:01
I've since seen some stats about him and he is doing well and tbh is the kind of player we should be in for. Think he is the second highest scorer in the championship but Coventry are 11th so that's clearly good. And yes he is better than what we have, but that is not hard.

But I just thought the game looked very very slow and the step up to the prem from that type of game would be a big one. But don't get me wrong I'd much rather see him play over Maupay.

I really don't know what's going on with Dom. I'm starting to think it's more than what we are being lead to believe. Was supposed to be close to coming back against Leeds but now he's nowhere to be seen. He's impossible to rely on. Come summer a starting 1st 11 striker must be a priority.

{Ed025's Note - it was last year, and the year before chris..

6.) 26 Feb 2023 23:35:05
True that. A bigger problem is we don't really seem to have goal threats in any of our other players either.

7.) 27 Feb 2023 09:00:20
Think dyche needs to try something slightly different, however can’t see him going with gray up top as clearly doesn’t seem to trust him.

Wonder if there are any youngsters that could be called upon?

8.) 27 Feb 2023 23:10:06
Need to play 2 up front as none of our forwards are good enough on their own.

9.) 01 Mar 2023 13:20:58
Problem with that blue boy is none of our midfielders are good enough to play in a 2 either.



15 Jan 2023 17:31:12
So if rags are to be believed we are looking at a 32 year old striker who has scored 1 goal in 12 games this season.
Should fit right in.


1.) 15 Jan 2023 17:58:03
Someone needs to take a long hard look at where we stand, Owner, Board, Manager, players, DOF, s and i can't see that happening in the short term, protests, threats ( if they happened ) book stops with the club as a whole, if its a 31 year old, we as supporters need to get behind the team, as we did at home last season, West Ham is a big Game, 3,6,9 points could take us over half way, we need to trust Frank, and us to drag us away, if we need to Sell, then so be it, no ones safe, COYB.

2.) 15 Jan 2023 18:01:35
Sounds like a shoo in slam dunk cert Woburn, and those who disagree will lose their key to the executive loos mate.

3.) 15 Jan 2023 18:02:19
Who’s going to do that? They employ themselves.
Moshiri made it clear that he thinks all is well after a review so we’re screwed.

4.) 15 Jan 2023 23:36:35
Wait till it's mathematically impossible to stay up. Oh boy would I like to be a fly on the wall of the boardroom. FM will be lashing out left right and centre. Nothing will be his fault. Everyone will have let him down with lies lies lies. I hope that does not come.



06 Jan 2023 17:17:17
Broadhead brought back now. Simms/ Broadhead up front?
Seriously starting to think we won't be bringing a striker in now, and are hoping these two with DCL and Maupay will get it done.


{Ed025's Note - that frightens the life out of me woburn..

1.) 06 Jan 2023 17:33:41
Might as well get DFS to dust his old boots and get ready.

2.) 06 Jan 2023 17:51:53
Brought back from Wigan loan to be sold permanently to Ipswich apparently.

3.) 06 Jan 2023 17:58:00
Nil Satis Nisi Optomistic ?‍♂️.

{Ed025's Note - love it woburn..

4.) 06 Jan 2023 18:30:14
Ipswich have a million burning a hole in there back pocket.

5.) 06 Jan 2023 18:33:12
As if there was any intention of bringing him back to play for us, the lad has spent more time out on loan than he has in the academy! As someone has pointed out, he's on his way out permanently this month ??.

6.) 06 Jan 2023 19:16:38
Told you before Nick etal! I was a rubbish footballer but lucky enough to be at places where I was able to play (be on the same pitch as) against some cracking players. There are many on this forum, judging from comments that have been there done that. I stand sit by/ near blokes that I just know have been and done it. We are old the brain says yes but the body days fk that LOL.

7.) 06 Jan 2023 23:05:34
Bringing the back to sell to raise cash I reckon, to blow it on some other dog mess.

8.) 06 Jan 2023 23:22:41
I was being a little tongue in cheeky. Everyone is so prickly these days.

9.) 07 Jan 2023 00:20:42
Your mum’s prickly #JoeMarler :)

10.) 07 Jan 2023 11:05:06
We will sell on 31st of January or loan him out again with buy clause inserted. It just gets me why any team that deals with us has us loan our players to them. Other teams just sell their players. We always scared to put our foot down against other clubs. It's like Brereton. I'm not huge fan of his as he's only living off the back of 1 decent season, but final 6 months of contract and Blackburn wanting 20 Mill. I'd off 8-10 max or just walk away. But knowing us we'll off 25 Mill thru desperation.

11.) 08 Jan 2023 10:37:20
Got Arthurs now Nick!, besides just on this forum I bet there are some old gits far better and capable than I. Besides not sober enough on match day, find it best to be a bit numb watching this lot.

26 Nov 2023 15:01:26
Ten Hag saying clubs should work within there means. Which is a bit rich given his club has a 1billion debt.




06 Nov 2023 08:13:31
Serious question.
Given that the majority appear to be happy with the style of football we are now playing. Should we have kept Fat Sam and given him more time. Wasn't his style of play similar to what we are seeing now?
Could have saved ourselves a small fortune when you think about it.


1.) 06 Nov 2023 08:35:25
It would be a no from me WB. Don't particularly like the smugness of the guy.

Happy with what Dyche is doing, know quite a few ain't but I see us growing as a team and under the circumstances I entered the club am happy with the first 9 months, not forgetting he came in unbacked in January, kept us up against all the odds when that's all the fans asked for.

Mixed bag of activity in summer with another limited spend, started the season pleasing on the eye didn't get the results our performances merited, having to withstand the uncertainty and negative vibes from within the club, some harsh VAR decisions, the takeover in the balance in more ways than one, our ongoing FFP case patiently awaiting our fate and Bill's passing, he has kept us going and for me showing small glimpses of genuine hope, it's about accumulation of points for now to withstand the possibility of the 12pt deduction, once we have clarity within the club and confidence in the team gained by actually getting results than for me we will address the so called negative approach (even tho our XG is still up there with the teams that are so called more pleasing on the eye) .

2.) 06 Nov 2023 09:58:00
Personally I think confidence grows with points tally, the swagger only occurs when a team/ squad say to themselves 'We got this'and right now its a work in progress and progress being the keyword.
SA was bombastic and seemed to be doing the 'I am always right because remember I have never been relegated' thing.
SD came here to make a difference IMO not to give it the 'big un' on Sky and the rest . . . plus he arrived when the whole club was reeling and still is which is no fault of his btw.
I like and respect Sean and would like him to at least take us to BMD in the PL.

3.) 06 Nov 2023 10:21:30
Alardyce was crapped on! No going back now, am quite happy with Dyche. Only criticism is the same as others, is his seeming dither (to me) on the substitute management.

4.) 06 Nov 2023 10:23:21
Interesting question. I think it was as much Sam’s manner as his style of play that supporters didn’t like. Little did we know then the mess we would be in over the coming seasons, with managers coming and going and the football getting worse.
At the time I think supporters felt that we should be playing better football than what they were seeing. Fast forward a few years and their now seems to be an acceptance that we are where we are, and this is the best we can do.
Ironic really when you think about it.

5.) 06 Nov 2023 14:25:34
Agreed, it was as much the arrongant swagger as the football. He spoke as if he was doing us all a favour by being there.
I understand the desire for flowing, attacking football. For me, a good manager plays to the strengths of his team. A week ago he was a tactical genius for protecting a lead at West Ham, today he’s negative and useless because we drew 1-1 with a very good Brighton team. Ignore most of the fuss. Dyche knows better than us how to keep a team up and that’s the challenge this year. Build on that.

6.) 06 Nov 2023 23:23:01
Dyche didn't sign Walcott and or genk tosun. the end.

7.) 06 Nov 2023 23:45:01
Why do some still hark on about Fat Sam? I know he was the first ever manager to prevent relegation in November but what else did he do that makes some fans delirious?
The football was atrocious under him, he wasted vast amounts of cash on players we couldn't resell and his arrogance and ego made him very unlikeable. I just don't get the love in for some of you, please explain!

8.) 07 Nov 2023 09:48:15
It wasn’t a love in. It was just a simple question, that required a simple answer.

9.) 07 Nov 2023 12:11:40
Woburn, it's not the first time a post has been put up regarding 'should we have him back' or something along them lines. It's not a simple question, it's an absolute stupid one!
Comparing SD to SA is pointless. One had cash to spend when they came in and duly wasted it on sh*te, the other had to deal with the dregs left behind from the likes of SA's tenures with limited funds to use. Neither are what I'd like at Everton in an ideal world but SA was one of the worst appointments in our history, just behind Rafa. The mind boggles that some still waste their breath on him and laughable that some really believe that he saved us after taking over from Koeman ?.

10.) 07 Nov 2023 17:38:57
Where did I say should we have him back?
I personally think his style of football was to bore the opposition and crowd to death.
Read the question again and you will see I was simply referring to the style of play. From then to now.
But hey let’s not have a discussion on anything in the future.

11.) 07 Nov 2023 20:36:56
Woburn, there's a few of you in here that seem to hark back to him for 'discussions' etc. I'm having a discussion and adding my opinion, is that not what this site is about? Or is only if someone agrees with you deemed to be a discussion?
I never actually said you had wanted him back, maybe if you read it again you will realise what I meant.

12.) 08 Nov 2023 11:26:28
Well the fact that we and others have had the debate shows it wasn’t a stupid question. It’s not about whether people agree or disagree, it’s about asking for their opinions.
Most chose to give their opinion, while others seem to see it as an opportunity to have a go.

13.) 08 Nov 2023 13:14:44
Again, Woburn, it's about opinions so not sure why you're taking it so personally! I could quote yourself from other posts saying the same yet, when someone disagrees with your opinion, you want to assume that they are having a pop at you.
Out of everything I said, you chose to pick up on one sentence 'its a stupid question' yet ignore any other point. No point talking to you, you say you want to discuss opinions but that's as long as it is in line with your own.



04 Nov 2023 17:15:46
Only 20% possession, had we been playing away then that would be understandable. But we're the home team .
Hate this type of football, never works as it's near impossible to defend for 90 mins.
Again subs should have been made earlier. It was pretty clear that Young was struggling with the pace of their winger. Would have made sense to bring Patterson on for Harrison just to shut that threat down.
Really want Dyche to succeed as am sick of this manager merry go round. But he has to realise that playing at home is different to playing away.


{Ed025's Note - possession means sod all Woburn, Brighton are a toothless tiger and although they had a lot of the ball never looked like scoring, for me we done well with the means at our disposal and the only way they were going to score was by a fluke...which sadly came to pass, its all about points at the minute mate and i thought we were unlucky not to get 3..

1.) 04 Nov 2023 17:26:00
No way was Young to blame for their goal, if anyone feels let down it should be us, that was a blatant foul in our box, again poor reffing and it cost us dear.

2.) 04 Nov 2023 17:29:09
That's how I saw it ED. He really needs a kick up his backside with his substitutions though. Young was always going to get skinned, age and tiredness doesn't help.

{Ed025's Note - i thought as a unit we were excellent DFS, of course i would like us to be more expansive but it is what it is with our squad, substitutions could have altered the shape which was working well so i dont have a problem with that today mate, i thought we were very unlucky..

3.) 04 Nov 2023 17:34:36
I do agree with ed25 and gb, Young was not to blame and we were defensively solid and they did not look likely to score. But I do think Patterson for young or Harrison would have shut mitoma down and the goal would have been avoided.

Dyche needs to make subs before these incidents happen. If this was a one off, then maybe dyche escapes any criticism, but it's a regular occurrence with him.

{Ed025's Note - it could have made a difference Chris but im trusting in Dyche before anyone on here mate.. :)

4.) 04 Nov 2023 17:48:37
Yeah you're probably right and it's easy to say what should be done in hindsight. I thought we played really well and it's promising for the season moving forward.

Really annoying to concede like that and the refs abysmal performance. If it wasn't for bad luck we'd have no luck.

{Ed025's Note - yeah Chris i thought we done well, they are no mugs mate and we never looked like losing that imo, one stroke of bad luck and we copped an unfortunate one...it happens..

5.) 04 Nov 2023 17:59:11
If the bloody ref wasn’t a cheat we should have had a pen.

6.) 04 Nov 2023 18:19:49
We worked hard today and it nearly came off against a good side who arr way infront of us, the difference is we are a strong in defence and we are creating, but I do feel like I would of made some changes, , maybe put doucoure in the middle, put garner out on the right and take off Harrison, he was none existent today, and brought on danjuma to give abit more off an attacking threat, but before the game a point was what I was hoping for so today its abit bitter sweet,

7.) 04 Nov 2023 19:14:55
Ref wasn't a cheat GB, he wasn't wearing his contacts is all. VAR has also taken referees decision making away from them.

8.) 04 Nov 2023 19:40:26
Sorry don’t agree. If you’re going to give a team 80% possession then you will eventually concede. Feel sorry for the players, they’re doing everything they are told to do. Strange that once they scored we had a go at them and nearly scored a winner.
Why not do that from the off?

9.) 05 Nov 2023 08:03:15
Ref wasn’t a cheat he disallowed their goal which was a very close call.
Liverpool targeted Young and Brighton did the same. All it needed was to give the guy support or subbing him. neither was done and in both games it cost us.



06 Oct 2023 08:17:41
Dyche: "if you take the goals out of it or performance was dominant".
The thing is Mr D the game is all about goals. You see if you don't score any but concede then you can't win.
So if Bournemouth score against us on Saturday I'm just going to ignore that as long as we're dominating the game. I can go home happy in the knowledge that although we lost again, we dominated the game?
Football has changed a lot since I played :)


1.) 06 Oct 2023 10:25:05
I understand your point Woburn, I think it’s just a poor way of saying performances are there and goals will come. Hopefully.

2.) 06 Oct 2023 12:47:41
He's obviously talking about how we are creating chances in almost every game. I'd say he's right on that point, we've played well in a couple of games but couldn't score and ended up losing. We need to start converting these chances to take the pressure off the defence and, obviously, put points on the table.

3.) 06 Oct 2023 12:49:58
A bad workman = Dyche. Losing trust in the blokes ability, have no idea what game he see's on matchday.

4.) 06 Oct 2023 14:21:33
I guess he has to find the positives from somewhere?

When it comes to performances and banging on about them when you have just lost to Luton at home must be quite a task in public, with cheesed off fans and cynical reporters trying to put a target on his back.
Thing is he just cannot be seen to be throwing in the towel otherwise game over full stop.

5.) 06 Oct 2023 14:35:37
I’ll tell you what he sees DFS. He sees a game that if we get more than 25% possession it’s seen as a success. He plays a tactic that needs maximum results from minimum possession and that’s a huge problem when a team as gash as Luton get to score twice against us!

Get him gone and get him gone now! There’s nothing about this formula that gets us out of relegation trouble!

6.) 06 Oct 2023 14:55:12
If he's saying the goals will come, then put our best goalscorer up top with our recent 26 million quid striker. Hey presto. Goals.

7.) 07 Oct 2023 09:11:54
Shouldn’t we be making chances in every game? Surely that’s the idea isn’t it?



02 Oct 2023 23:52:08
Bally in his Echo piece has got it pretty much spot on. Worth a read.


1.) 03 Oct 2023 08:00:05
It's as if he reads these pages ;-)

2.) 03 Oct 2023 08:57:52
I wish dyche would read these pages.

3.) 03 Oct 2023 09:11:30
Probably best he doesn’t.

4.) 03 Oct 2023 10:13:15
Can he read?

5.) 03 Oct 2023 13:05:28
Of course he can read Skylark, Dychey loves a good STORY especially when it's about grass, xg and DYCHEFIT.

I would agree with that FBS. Feel 777 are trying to get in early before the result of the hearing. Taking a chance all will be good.
They probably realise that no serious investors would come in until they know what it is they’re buying. So are basically taking a gamble.
