Ed 25 do you think we will bring anyone in i don't think we we will.


{Ed025's Note - im not sure mate..

1.) 01 Feb 2021 16:17:54
I think we will Bretto.

2.) 01 Feb 2021 16:37:00
I hope we do aswell hopeing they have something up there sleeve.

3.) 01 Feb 2021 16:37:32
I don't think we are getting anyone I think it depended if Bernard left and Alan Myers reported he's been training with the team today so looks unlikely he's going it's also being reported Fulham are in for Josh King.

4.) 01 Feb 2021 18:32:54
Echo saying Bernard deal off. Que the lights being turned off for the day.

5.) 01 Feb 2021 19:08:34
Don’t think the lights were ever on.



30 Jan 2021 21:15:09
With tosun going back besiktas ed02 do you think replacement will come in.


{Ed002's Note - Timing is horrible and even though he has only played occasionally this season and has not been sold, Everton could look to buying a youngster for the future or o perhaps a loan - but that will be difficult.}

1.) 31 Jan 2021 01:53:42
Tar ed ye not best time to be on look out for back up striker on last day pretty much.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 09:41:19
Any names we could be looking at Ed. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure that there will be sufficient time to get a player the club really desires now and so if there is a need to replace Tosum, and there may not be, then a loan might be a good option. Edin Dzeko is being offered around after falling out of favour. Lassina Traore's agent wants a move to England but Ajax would look to block any move until the summer at this late stage. Taking an expensive chance on Diego Costa seems unlikely. Giovanni Simeone is available and could offer something different. Josh King has to be possible as Everton have previously shown interest. Boulaye Dia would cost more but could be a very smart move in the longer term. But there is nothing firm I know of right now.}

3.) 31 Jan 2021 10:44:53
Not looking good then seems very short sighted to let these players leave without having a plan in place.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 11:33:46
Carlo will know that better than anyone, so there’s likely a plan in place.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 11:40:36
Echo reporting that Tosun deal to besiktas is virtually done and that Zirkzee is almost done to Parma, Keihdra going to Hertha, Bernard going to UAE
Nicolas De la Cruz a 23 year old Uruguayan international attacking midfielder playing for River Plate being linked and Dzeko from Roma another link being made. Just trawling for news and passing it on .
Don’t know if anything will happen but we need something to stir up the team and give us something off the bench.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 15:03:41
No Big C, we need someone coming straight into the team and that lot going on the bench.

7.) 31 Jan 2021 21:41:20
I would take Dzeko.

{Ed0666's Note - if you could get him for 12-18 months what a coup he would be.



08 Jan 2021 00:26:41
Ed02 if tosun bernad go in January can you see any replacements coming in for them.


{Ed002's Note - Obviously they have not been playing regularly so there is an argument there is no need to replace them. The club has plenty of cover for Bernard. At some point Everton do need to add a striker.}

1.) 08 Jan 2021 12:27:09
Thanks ed02 for striker who do you it could be as they would be back up.

{Ed002's Note - Without heading down the Costa route I think that CA would want to head for safety with Milik, but he would expect to be first choice. Keeping Kean may be an option but if the player wants to take the next step they should sell. Looking to the future, of the players looked at Boulaye Dia of Reims has time to improve and may provide a good solution.}

2.) 08 Jan 2021 15:02:24
Thanks ed i agree on costa route be on huge wages and past his best. Dia might be good option or someone similar. Not sure on milik didn't he have bad injury in past.

3.) 08 Jan 2021 19:16:20
Can understand people’s point of view on Costa. I can’t help but wonder if this is the time to gamble on two/ three experienced players ( like Costa and Khedira) in the hope that they get us over the line into 4th spot. If we get European football, we’ll need a bigger squad anyway.

4.) 09 Jan 2021 00:49:47
Not same player any more plus think we need younger back up.

5.) 09 Jan 2021 10:53:09
Ideally, yes. But young players of the required quality to push DCL for a first team spot will not be easy to come by, especially in January.

6.) 09 Jan 2021 15:14:14
That why i think he wants to keep cenk till summer.



02 Jan 2021 10:58:22
Hi ed 02 and all other ed hope u all had good Christmas and new year . Ed 02 can u see carlo bringing in striker or any other postion. I think be loans if we bring anyone. Maybe 2 from Europe as it sounds like were trying get Olsen on permanent deal.


{Ed002's Note - I would not expect too much in January but Everton face work in the summer and need to decide on which contracts to extend and which to let run down or sell up. Before the start of next season they need to add a second pick G, a RB, possibly a DM, a RW and a S.
Possible options being considered right now include:
Robin Olsen (G) the club want him to join when his loan expires.
Max Aarons (RB) seen as a long term solution to the RB position.
Gleison Bremer (CB) Carlo Ancelotti tried to take him to Napoli and could try again - but a Work Permit could be an issue unless paying over the odds. If Mina stays nothing will happen.
Sami Khedira (CM/DM) Will be allowed to leave Juventus in January. The player says he is keen to work with Ancelotti again - it is unclear if Everton would look to him - makes little or no sense and wages would be very high. Spurs may offer a solution for 18 months.
Demarai Gray (RW) not a CA pick but there might be a real push for him.
Boulaye Dia (S) Reims striker who would need to considerably improve his strike rate but has been of interest to Brighton, Everton and Marseille. Says he wants to play for Lyon.
Arkadiusz Milik (S) a wildcard because of the CA link but of interest to others.
Diego Costa (S) will be offered to two English sides including Everton but I doubt they will want the risk.

Everton have 10 players entering the last year of their contracts next summer in addition to these potential departures. The club needs to step up.
Robin Olsen (G) will become a Free Agent.
Jonjoe Kenny (RB) Schalke wanted another loanbut Everton have kept him and not used him - needs to move on.
Yerri Mina (CB) May well be available at the right price.
Mo Besic (DM) Wasting his time in the U23s at Everton.
Yannick Bolasie (LW) Sporting wanted to keep him but would prefer another loan if there is an end to the current crisis - this is the result of buying all the LWs in Europe - will be very tough to move on - except cheaply in January but a Free Agent in the summer.
Bernard (LW) Really needs to get to a side who can manage their squad well - Roma may offer to take him on a loan to buy deal of some type.
Moise Kean (S) Needs to move on as soon as possible.
Cenk Tosun (S) has permission to talk to other clubs but fitness will be an issue.

1.) 02 Jan 2021 16:07:51
thanks ed02 great info as usual.

2.) 02 Jan 2021 22:56:23
Should be a great summer. We've had the summer of no10s the summer of Lws so it will be interesting to see which position we stockpile this summer.

3.) 03 Jan 2021 12:42:55
Great info cheers Ed.
Smit, my money is on RB this time, running low on them at the minute.

4.) 03 Jan 2021 12:42:55

5.) 04 Jan 2021 02:06:45
I think Costa on a free could be a risk worth taking, still only 32 and possibly that bit of meanness we are lacking.

Gray was a big risk, but he toughened sharp up, maybe Costa is the player Calvert-Lewin is missing alongside him to give us the same short term fix.



04 Oct 2020 20:29:09
Ed02 you been spot on about kean leaving all summer just didn't expect it to be PSG. Can you see replacement coming if so have u got any ideas who. Thanks in advanxe.


{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely as the squad needs to shed one or two still. Perhaps not impossible.}

1.) 04 Oct 2020 21:41:39
Ed I know you said unlikely but if a new striker came in, do you think. it would most likely be Milik? Or is that just paper talk?

{Ed002's Note - Milik would be an option but there are talks going on about him with Fiorentina. Space and money could be an issue.}

2.) 04 Oct 2020 21:45:11
Ah thanks ed02 just think we are light up front.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 21:46:17
Are we likely to sell anyone or just a couple of outgoing loans?

{Ed002's Note - Sales are tough right now as clubs are finding out.}

4.) 04 Oct 2020 23:46:08
I fully expect a striker to come in onloan along with Godfrey.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 00:20:13
Hopefully a goalkeeper rather get Nigel Martyn back or big nev than Pickford, I still had faith in him at start of season, but majority of goals conceded this season he has beeN at fault somehow. What are the chances of Romero coming in tomorrow or pau Lopez.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 07:23:24
Sad to say I agree, the lad’s lost the plot. Looks uncomfortable on the pitch. Flapping and punching all over the place. Romero seems the obvious solution as he’s 3rd choice now. Need a striker imo. Could be an interesting day.

7.) 05 Oct 2020 11:19:36
Even Jagielka would be better in goal than D*ckford!

Not result we wanted but Joao Virginia had good game looks like he might have couple games after international break. Big summer ahead for us in carlo we trust.


1.) 21 Mar 2021 14:47:44
I wouldn’t be opposed to him playing after the break. He did nothing wrong against City and from what I remember, was rated quite decently at Arsenal before we got him.



06 Feb 2021 22:34:08
Better 2nd half good point.




06 Feb 2021 20:53:28
Awful first half that made utd look good.


{Ed047's Note - haha, all change



30 Jan 2021 14:24:57
Awful game are squas depth is shocking no one bench who gone come on change game.




02 Oct 2020 18:26:31
Godfrey looks close to coming think he will be good signings. Would love to see ellis Simms given chance he natural goalscorer needs chance.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 21:53:35
He’s not ready YET!
Scoring at under whatever is not PL standard and so few make it!
Trust THE DON he’ll put him in squad or keep in reserves or Liam as is needed.
Banging them in in reserves isn’t an instant squad player! If it was that easy we wouldn’t need CA!
Even natural goal scorers need to be strong and fit enough for PL and realistically that takes a few extra years now PL standard is so high.
Occasionally u get a Rooney / Gerrard but as good as u think Simms is he’s obviously not yet ready.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 22:30:06
How do we know he’s not ready? 🤷🏻‍♂️
He could surprise us being fed by someone like James.

3.) 02 Oct 2020 22:35:24
Because Simms isn’t going to replace DCL right now

So let’s say Kean goes and Simms is our backup

DCL gets injured and Simms steps up and it turns out he isn’t ready, then we are in serious trouble

That’s why we can’t give him a chance right now.

{Ed025's Note - im with you swan, you cant just throw ellis in the deep end it could ruin the lad, im not saying spend big money just a loan of a player with a bit of experience, cavani would do for me mate..

4.) 03 Oct 2020 02:24:18
I’m not saying he is ready but there is always a time we get surprised by a player
We need back up otherwise we will be like spurs but right now I would prefer Simms over Mr Moody Kean.
