Richarlison must be on the pitch thinking what rubbish have I joined here. Same old same old we are poor.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 10:38:47
Couple of signings and we will be ok, new system and all that, result means nothing, it's about the players, Silva will now know who needs replacing and who stays, I'm sure we will see a lot better by the time the league starts .

2.) 27 Jul 2018 13:09:36
The Blackburn game started with Sigs getting some game minutes and the rest of the squad who would probably be considered second, third or even fourth choice players in each position. The second half saw more of what would be more likely Silvas first eleven, but by then the damage was done and they couldn't build up a rhythm quickly enough against a Blackburn side that were far more prepared for a season that starts in 10 days. I wouldn't worry too much as I think it was an opportunity to make final decisions on places in the team, necessary signings and player exits. Sadly, some players have made it easier for Silva to make decisions on. Score doesn't really matter, but Silva did not look happy. At least 2 quality defenders are essential purchases this window, whoever they may be. Also thought that tackle on Baines in the last two minutes was a disgrace for a pre season friendly. But the reaction from the players should provide some comfort, as it highlighted that they were of the mindset that it was just a friendly to find fitness and form. I think we'll see a much more focused squad in the next game.



26 Feb 2018 18:01:47
The problem with the club is we have no captain steering the ship and we have the most spineless and gutless players I have ever watched in a blue jersey. Blame this blame that but most of all blame the ones who wear the shirt and disgrace it at every opportunity.


1.) 26 Feb 2018 18:43:12
If you were a racing driver then you would want to race to win. But if your crew were constantly telling you a place is good enough so play safe, you would very quickly become demotervated and struggle to even make a place.
These players have a leader off the pitch who wants to play safe, and it's effecting there moral. Yes we need a strong captain, but if he is not allowed to lead then what's the point. The players are playing with fear, and there's only one person who is to blame for that.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 21:11:33
Like I said the other day mate, not enough players out there maybe a couple excepted who'll give everything for this shirt and lead it. The batterings we've had this season show just how much we miss the strong characters who wouldn't roll over like Cahill or even Naismith who gave everything for the shirt. Captains set standards and I don't think anyone out there does that or leads, only one of captain material to me is Pickford.

3.) 27 Feb 2018 07:09:44
give coleman the armband as soon as he is back fully fit for me he is a born leader, sets the standard and has no problem letting you no if u fall below said standards.
i think if him and james mc would have been fit all season we would be nailed on 7th challanging for 6th/ 5th at least, the passion they both show put the rest, bar pickford as u say, to shame.

{Ed025's Note - i will have that johny mate..



27 Jan 2018 12:49:35
I have supported etc for over 50 years and I can honestly say that this is the worst mess I have ever seen this club in. it starts from the top to the bottom and Walsh is the most overated scout I have ever known. Will someone please sort out this mess before it's too late.


1.) 27 Jan 2018 13:02:58
Some times money has the wrong effect when given to the wrong person, as we can see we've an unbalanced team, Sam is trying to add pace but we as a team have to many weaknesses, the fact the team is never settled shows the manager spent really no his best team.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 16:42:41
I wouldn’t say this is the biggest mess - after all we’ve had last-day relegation escapes - but it is the biggest disappointment in terms of comparing expectations (Moshiri, stadium, player recruitment, etc. ) with the reality (performances, results, negativity, etc. ) .



02 Jan 2018 19:16:01
We should walk away from the tosun deal as trying to deal with Turkish clubs is very difficult remember the problems with yobo when we tried to sell him. The Turks can't be trusted.


{Ed002's Note - You think Everton should show the way by rolling over and selling players for less than being asked for.}

1.) 02 Jan 2018 19:48:52
Have to agree with ed here. What do you expect clubs to do? Thank us for our first offer and be done with it. Football is a business which involves huge amounts of money. Negotiation will always happen on all sides.

2.) 02 Jan 2018 20:01:35
I think sometimes our negotiations are like that rude driver or person leaving/ entering a premises that you give way for. They never say thankyou or acknowledge and would never repay the favour. People have a go at that man Levy at Spurs but he gets things done.

3.) 02 Jan 2018 20:29:36
I’m glad our fans don’t negotiate transfer fees, wages, or any other club business, as we’d have gone out of business long ago. Our club might deserve criticism, but imho some of that is frankly ludicrous.



06 Sep 2017 21:33:28
Does anybody else think that barkley has done this on purpose so that he can get a bigger signing on fee wherever he goes. he has stuck his two fingers up at everybody connected to our great football club.


{Ed025's Note - im not sure what his game is alan, but i cant see him ever wearing our famous shirt ever again mate..

1.) 06 Sep 2017 23:02:52
Do you know what really annoys me. We sold Rooney to UTD and I'm sure some of that fee went towards the development of Barkley in some way or form. I'm not saying that he should go somewhere that he is not happy at but at least make sure the club he supports and was developed by is looked after. Rooney went to UTD and won the lot, I actually hope his career flops.

{Ed025's Note - sadly im getting that way myself cosh..

2.) 07 Sep 2017 09:58:44
He may well have done. If he's decided he's off he's going to trying to get as much as possible out of it.

3.) 07 Sep 2017 10:36:38
If that is the case and his only motivation is his own financial gain he's showing a total lack of respect for the club that nurtured him and stood by him during his terrible injuries.

4.) 07 Sep 2017 11:08:29
I've said it before and I know it would cost us but I would keep him for the whole year. Play him if we need him, mainly as a sub.

5.) 07 Sep 2017 12:01:24
I personally believe he has been asked to wait til jan by spurs they save wages and buy him at a fraction of the 35 million we could of got (we all know spurs are tight) and they will give him a higher signing on fee for waiting so he uses our facilities to get himself fit while picking up a nice wage packet If I was koeman I would banish him from the 1st team.

6.) 07 Sep 2017 14:15:28
Sadly this is a typical example of player power. The boy will end up screwing the club he supports. When Rooney left we got a really good fee for a boy his age although it then went on to be a bargain for united, we needed the money so it was win win.

Barkley's departure will be very different and will vilify him to a point that unlike Rooney it will be very difficult to accept him back. Then once spurs chew him up and spit him out as they usually do, he will end up at West Ham or Palace looking up the table at Everton wondering what went wrong.

7.) 07 Sep 2017 14:24:02
Bluey79 I'm not sure how you can call Spurs tight. They seen he was injured and knew he wouldn't play again this year and could get him for a fraction of a price in Jan. I'd call that good business. Would you pay triple the price for something you can use until January?

8.) 07 Sep 2017 15:56:37
Basically Spurs can't pay him the wages he would want due to there structure when they move into the new ground it will change but as I said before 12 months in football is a long time and Spurs will need to do something this season to keep players like Alli Kane there top 4 is not certain and I think they will not make it this year due to Wembley factor, I know it gets talked about but there home form was excellent last season and I don't see them getting same points at Wembley this season.

9.) 07 Sep 2017 18:01:00
Ryan1988 spurs and Levy are renowned for being tight why do you think they always leave it late to buy players it's because they save on wages and if Chelsea were willing to pay the 35 million so should spurs of been instead they will prob get him for 10 million and before you say it's clever 1 ask the spurs fans they constantly complain how tight spurs are and 2 ask the players who will mostly be looking to leave as they won't get payed the going rate that's why I can call them tight mate.

10.) 07 Sep 2017 19:56:34
Spurs just show they are not as big as they think. For ages I was hoping Barkley stayed now I am changing my mind. If he goes to Spurs then so be it Pochetino will probably get snapped up by someone else soon Dele Ali will likely leave, and all will be a big Barkley mess.

11.) 07 Sep 2017 20:26:28
Hes not done us any favours, but he's sabotaging himself as well. I lobed Barkley as a player, he could have become a legend, now I don't give a monkeys uncle what he does or where he ends up.

12.) 07 Sep 2017 23:20:02
Said it myself as a poster above, keep him at Everton until July, but I would not give the guy game time to benefit his next club or slim chance of the World Cup, Spurs can stick their £10 Million offer up their arse, make sure the guy is not match fit for when he leaves. May be throwing £10 Million plus the rest of his wages down the shitter but would sooner lose out to a fee than gifting him in January, he's an Everton player until July and I would not be surprised if Moshi uses his power to lower Barkleys player power, specially after the deadline fiasco Mossi had to deal with live on sky sports.

13.) 08 Sep 2017 09:04:43
send him home, don't give him access to our training/ physio facilities, don't let him train and ban him from training with any other club. Strip him of all club benefits and freeze him out of our club for Ever including any images and videos.

{Ed025's Note - your a very harsh guy SDS, im not saying you are wrong though but hung drawing and quartering a player is outlawed..pity that..

14.) 08 Sep 2017 13:04:45
Spurs spent within the means of the club whilst currently building a state of the art stadium. Levy seen that Barkley was injured and wasn't going to take a chance and wanted to wait to see the developments. Maybe Spurs will lose players but even the biggest clubs in the world (Barcelona) lose stars all the time. It seems a bit bitter Bluey you are attacking a club because they didn't buy an injured player from you.

15.) 08 Sep 2017 13:47:18
He's had a good living so far for a young lad without really paying it back on the field. Did feel sorry for him as I thought he could be suffering some kind of breakdown, however it now looks more and more like it's all about him and what he can get out of a deal. Starting to agree with scousedownsouth.

16.) 08 Sep 2017 12:43:20
a contract is both ways, he has a right to be at efc's training facitlity. whether we like it or not. i mean if barkley is playing this out as going to spurs, then he has already lowered his own player power cause he has left himself open to whatever whim levy wants to throw at him regarding a contract. it is forgone conclusion that he will never get back the player power he is giving up. cause who would take him now after what he did to chelsea and what he is about to do to efc. a players power rely's upon the value a team place upon you and your attitude towards the game and whether your an outstanding player, sadly ross has failed to see the obvious by behaving in such a way he has stripped himself of any value to his current club and to spurs, and as such has givin up willingly it must be said any power he might of once had as a player. would not be surprised if spurs no longer needed him. by no means is this guy anywhere near as good as he thinks he is, its kind of sad really. who advises these guys on how to behave, he has taken himself from a first 11 starter to a squad player for spurs at best worse is spurs have a kid who comes thru this year and then decide nah we don't want you he will be f.

{Ed025's Note - im on boad with all of that floats mate..

17.) 11 Sep 2017 00:13:49
The more I look at it, the more I think it is down to our manager, never thought I would say that but he's losing the dressing room and I'm bloody grey with the system he keeps playing, publically chastising Barkley, the treatment of Niasse, if things do not pick up quick and before people say need time to gel I would not lose any sleep if we brought Unsworth in to fix our sinking ship.

Why is it that we are always waiting for players to reach their potential. Outside of football when you are a tradesman you have your aprenticeship from 17-21 then you get a job hopefully in the trade that you are trained in. As a footballer after being at an academy learning your trade from the age of 12 when you get to the first team you should be ready if not ready not good enough.


1.) 02 Jan 2021 14:38:31
Alanthomo - Who are we waiting to reach their potential?

Don’t think any of our current players are in the waiting to reach potential stage of their career.

2.) 02 Jan 2021 23:42:02
Are you saying that once you pass your apprentiship you are at the top of your profession?
You do talk some absolute twoddle Alan.



28 Jul 2018 19:05:51
we are going to get slaughtered when the prem starts that third goal was shocking.


1.) 28 Jul 2018 19:14:39
We need 4 more players atleast. 2 cbs first team. A dm that is not Morgan. Plus hopefully Digne.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 19:18:47
Our defense is just too slow. As soon as you get fast players in the opposition they run past our defenders with ease. Hopefully we can bring in a few new defenders over the next few weeks.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 19:19:15
3-0 4-1 pre-season or not that is dreadful.



04 Mar 2018 10:30:10
The truth is that we are a badly run club from top to bottom. The ceo is crap the dof is crap the manager is crap the coaching staff every one of them is crap 90% of the players are either crap, spineless, gutless or cheats how many players show the passion that we show on here, NONE. Peanut them all because I have had enough. won't be renewing my season ticket for the first time in 35 years. oh and the new ground is also a PISS TAKE.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 12:36:27
alanthomo, the CEO is the guy that has been at the root of all our errors from Kirkby onwards.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 13:36:26
But other than that Alan are you happy with the club?

3.) 04 Mar 2018 15:42:49
There will be many out there who will buy the season ticket Alan so Everton as a club will not even notice you gone.

4.) 04 Mar 2018 15:47:35

5.) 05 Mar 2018 11:10:03

25 Jan 2018 20:03:15
I see everton ladies have two new players that will improve their team
maybe SA should talk to their manager for a few pointers. As he is doing shite trying to bring in new players that will improve the rubbish that we have.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 21:00:29
You do realise that's not the same though don't you, yes we want signings especially a lb but I guess some fans just think you can click your fingers and they fall from the sky, we have to trim the squad we have too many players let's wait and see what happens when the window shuts then we can all complain when don't get what we want.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 21:51:43
Sorry about the rant alanthomo just want fans to be realistic think we are going to have to wait till the summer to see the bigger picuture.

3.) 25 Jan 2018 22:18:05
we may very well be relegated the way allardyce has us playing
so the summer transfer window might be a tad too late for us I hope not but I am trying to be optimistic but I just can't see us winning that many games at present we need the crowd to get behind the team and give them some confidence because each player looks terrified of touching the ball and that's not good.

4.) 26 Jan 2018 05:10:18
At the minute we're the worst team in the league. Every other team is improving apart from us. How we are 9th is a miracle but that could soon change. If we can't beat the likes of Wba at home and we keep losing our trickier games we will be right down there at the end of the season. If we lose to leicester and arsenal Sam got to go.

5.) 26 Jan 2018 09:50:08
We are 9th because of the points tally we have. Yes other teams are improving but we had a secent run a while back. when they were having poor runs. We need to pick up for 5 or 6 games. a couple of draws and a couple of wins and secure our spot. I see Moyes is signing creative forward running players. wonder why we didn't go after the lad. on a loan too.



02 Jan 2018 21:26:51
To ed002
The deal with the Turks was struck at 25 million on Friday and yesterday they have come back to us to squeeze another 2 million out of us as they know we are desperate for a striker as I say you can't trust a Turk in business.


{Ed002's Note - No. I explained that two bids had been made but there was no agreement. It is a great pity, but hardly a surprise, to find yet another xenophobic. Perhaps reading what I said previously will make it much clearer.}

1.) 03 Jan 2018 08:53:01
it's called business we want the deal to be as cheap as possible Beskitas wants as much as they can squeeze out of Everton a compromise will be made between the two figures and I'm still confident the deal will go ahead.

2.) 03 Jan 2018 09:29:34
I don't know why people bother getting worked up about signings its totally out of our control and the media very rarely report accurately what's actually happening.

if lookman could track back and cover he would be in the side ahead of wallcott but he simply doesn't . also I think he has a bad attitude to teamwork that's why he doesn't get in the side more often we need players with a harder workrate and as bad as wallcott is at the moment his work rate is still better than lookmans.
