Have any of the Eds or another poster got an update on Thierry Small?

Wasn't it 1st August he could sign for another club. Has he returned to training with us?

bw2412 v2.0

{Ed025's Note - sorry bw i have heard nothing on him mate..

1.) 10 Aug 2021 19:33:55
Nothing to do with Everton but is anyone else going to start with DCL in the fantasy football?



09 Aug 2019 01:17:55
Not a 100% perfect transfer window but still a very good one where we

Signed a goalkeeper which improves our cover for Pickford and which allows Virginia to go out on loan and gain valuable experience

Signed a right back on loan for a year who will really challenge Seamus for his place. After a year we have the option to sign him if he is a success, bring back Kenny if he has improved out on loan or look at the situation again but we're now in a much better situation

Centre back is why I am saying not 100 % but let's not forget Gbamin can play as centre half so we have provided some cover and I think Mina will prove himself this season

In midfield, unfortunately Gueye has left us but he goes with all our best wishes and we have Delph and Gbamin as strong signings, Don't forget we also got one of our prime targets Gomes on a permanent for really good price

In attack MOISE KEAN! What a signing and again what a bargain he will turn out to be. He's young but is our new Lukaku and him and Calvert Lewin will push each other. Iwoebi came in very late and he is an big improvement to the squad

All in all a good transfer window and my thanks to Brands and all his team, the owner for his support and Marco for selling the project

Really good window mate.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 09:21:32
On top of this they have also managed to move out a lot of the squad that weren't getting a game with more to come until the European window closes

Others have also strengthened but we knew that would happen.
I think we have a chance of catching Chelsea and Wolves, I'm not sure Arsenals attack can offset its lack of defence and I also think Man Utd are there for the taking, even with Maguire so BRING IT ON


3.) 09 Aug 2019 17:44:28
Only problem for Virginia is my mates who are Reading fans said he had a bit of a mare for his first game and reading picked up some Brazilian keeper during the window
Hope he does get some game time though as I heard he looks a great prospect.



15 Aug 2018 10:01:52
Anyone know why Mina wasn't at training yesterday?

My shortlist

Potter - before people start saying that Brighton aren't much better than Everton position wise we have to remember Potter hasn't had the millions we've wasted over the last 5 years. With very little money he has built a team that is defensively sound and plays good football. He's not expressed much interest in Everton but maybe that's because we always seem to have him in the frame but never the front runner

Kovac/ Galtier Both successful in Europe and I think could do well in the Premiership. Lack of Premiership experience is a gamble

Dyche - like Potter done a good job with no money although struggling this year but still 10 years in the Premiership so knows what it takes. He could keep us up but would he move us forward? Personally I think though he is closest to the Everton ethos - the Fans Club

Rooney - doing a great job at Derby but it would be a big gamble for both us and him at this stage of his career

Martinez - I'm not sure why he is the favorite in the betting. Reasonable first season for us last time but then fell away. Has a great Belgium side on paper now but not won anything. I don't think he is the one to unite the club and its fanbase

Duncan - great player for the club and had a good THREE games as interim manager. Surprisingly I don't feel at 50 years old he has displayed the courage to be manager by his reluctance to leave Everton and prove himself elsewhere.

I can't say I'm sorry if Rafa has indeed been sacked. Sadly he just wasn't up to it and shouldn't have been appointed in the first place
His leaving puts us in an effing mess though - all of our own making

We are saddled with a severance package that will severely test us regarding FFP
He's managed to get rid of the DOF. Seriously who else on our board can pick his successor, especially considering their record so far?
Team morale is at an all time low with the likes of Allan and Mina rumored to want out
The whole board should be considering whether they should resign
Moshiri should look in the mirror - it's hard to tell the man who has invested all that money but he's invested it in a fiasco of his own making and shows absolutely no football knowledge whatsoever. If he continues like he has he's just throwing good money after bad and it's us that suffers as well

We start the cycle again with the likely hood that the same mistakes will be made again

Getting rid of Rafa was the right move but it was forced upon us rather than us making an informed decision

How can we stop this mess from happening again?

Not to big to go down. Also not a given we would come straight back. Imperative therefore that we concentrate now on gatherinb enough points to remain. 1 pt a game average should give us 38 pts, is that enough?



15 Jan 2022 08:21:13
Hopefully this can be a season changing match for us
A positive match winning performance will set us up for a far better second half
We need to go out and dominate from the start, no negative thoughts, and the players can give the fans the lift they all crave for.

{Ed025's Note - thats what all of us want i expect bw, this game could be pivotal in the context of our season mate..

1.) 15 Jan 2022 08:50:22
I agree Ed. Let's keep our fingers (and toes) crossed.

{Ed025's Note - very much so mate..

2.) 15 Jan 2022 09:21:37
Just hope we start on Front foot and Benitez doesn’t set us up to play negative defensive footy because we can’t defend!

3.) 15 Jan 2022 10:40:15
Bloody hope so bw. Got over here last night and already had a load of stick. Off for breakfast then the pub and then the game with my canary friends. COYB!
Please don’t be negative ?.

4.) 15 Jan 2022 12:22:21
5 at the back and 1 nil down before it gets changed. Hopefully it comes good in the end.

Story of our season so far Cookie

I hope you can enjoy the game Woburn.

6.) 15 Jan 2022 14:14:21
That is literally not going to happen BW.
Well go a goal behind, start playing, get a draw and move on to Villa.



05 Jan 2022 05:10:58
Just a quick post to Mykolenko and Patterson

I don't know enough about you as players but you have made the decision to join our club and I hope and wish you a happy and successful time with us

You are part of the Everton Family now

not a bad start in the new transfer window by rafa bw as i keep saying to all the doom merchants on here KEEP THE FAITH AND RAFA WILL DELIVER.

2.) 05 Jan 2022 06:54:00
As I said Alan I don't know enough about them as players yet but they've signed for us and I want them to do well for us.

They are both young and inexperienced in this league so will need time to adjust and we will need to show patience to them

Certainly far more patience than I am willing to give a 61 year old manager who seems to have forgotten how to set a team up properly or perhaps he never could in todays times.

Let's see how long it takes for some of our fickle fans take to start calling them rubbish. I'm betting it will be a lot sooner than the 2-3 years some of our fans think we have to give Rafa who has done nothing to warrant any trust in him


3.) 05 Jan 2022 10:10:20
Two for the price of one. We are getting two young full backs for the price of one left back potentially.
I like bw will hope they do turn out to be top players. Patterson I’ve seen a bit of, and he does look decent. The other lad I’ve never heard of.
Apparently both like getting forward, I do hope Benitez doesn’t knock that out of them?
Just need a change in tactics now and we might start to see a bit of improvement.
It does make me laugh though being classed as a “Doom and gloom merchant”, when all I want is what’s best for the club. And our form, league position and style of play currently suggest it’s not Benitez.
Time will tell.

4.) 05 Jan 2022 12:14:19
It makes me laugh Woburn that the ones calling us Gloom merchants are the ones slagging the majority of the team off on the chat site during matches

We all forget at times that we all support Everton. I'm as much to blame as the next and maybe we should all show that support a bit more but I'll be honest I find it hard to find anything good to say about Everton management at the moment

I'll be ecstatic when I can.

5.) 05 Jan 2022 13:08:27
Same here bw. It’s getting to the point that I look at the formation before I look at the team. Last week though when we saw that we were playing a back five, there was nobody near me that understood that.
Yet before that was announced people were buzzing after what we did at Chelsea, and we all thought Simms or Dobbin would start up top with DCL.
Once that first goal went in the atmosphere just disappeared, I have an old girl sits a few rows in front of me and she was screaming for them to go to a back four and bring another striker on.
If she can see it why can’t he?

6.) 05 Jan 2022 13:34:38
Bloke near us was on his 5th Tinny and said (I think LOL) the same as your old girl Woburn, perhaps not using the same words as her though.

Eds, particularly ED002

Any idea when we will publishing the Financial Report for 20/ 21 as it's already later than when we published last year?

How long after they are published do we have to submit our FFP returns to the EPL or is it possible we have submitted the returns and are already in discussions with the EPL

What is the process if we are not complying with FFP regulations?

Sorry for all the questions but I imagine they could have an impact on what we can spend in January.

bw2412 v2.0

{Ed002's Note - (a) The accounts are due by March but should be available before then. (b) The FFP returns have already been done, they are submitted each June. (c) I don't really understand the question. (d) FFP is based year on year and not transfer window by transfer window.}

1.) 18 Dec 2021 08:07:12

To answer your questions
a) the accounts for y/ e 30th June 2020 were on the internet mid Dec. I was wondering if this is normal and that the accounts for 20/ 21 will be available to the public shortly
b) When you say the FFP returns are submitted in June would the ones submitted last June include the unaudited accounts for 20/ 21 or would they only go up to the year 19/ 20
c) If we have failed to comply with FFP regulations what happens next and how long is it before we know if there are any penalties etc
d) I understand that. I guess its just what years are in the submission that I am unclear on

Hope this clarifies it for you and thanks for your assistance


{Ed002's Note - (a) The business has 9 months to submit them after year end. (b) The FFP accounts are different and are submitted for the season just finished by the end of June. (c) There is no time limit. (d) The season just completed.}

2.) 18 Dec 2021 12:10:26
thanks Ed for your information

The workings of the EPL are strange

Clubs have to submit in June so their figures would be 11 months actual plus one month forecast as they would be submitting before the moth had closed
Unaudited accounts I could understand as they could instruct the clubs to inform them of any material changes
But why not wait and get the submission in July when at least the year end has been completed?

Good info though Ed - I appreciate it.

{Ed002's Note - The FFP accounts are different to the overall accounts and have to be submitted after the end of the season. It is no big deal and unrelated to the year ends which can vary.

I thought I'd go to the expert i. e. you ED

Have you not said in the past that Everton have FFP difficulties

Simple question . Do they still have them and, if so, how bad


bw2412 v2.0

{Ed002's Note - Yes Everton have FFP issues and they are very bad.}

I never said you did ED

I said that you had said Everton would have submitted their FFP returns last June including the year ending 30th June 2021

We ended up only spending last summer 1.7m and a lot of people, not you per say, have said it was related to FFP difficulties

What could have changed since then that would allow us to spend a lot more this January such as the approx 20 million this new proposed left back is said to be costing

{Ed002's Note - Ask whoever told you that Everton could only spend £1.7M last summer.}

Hi Woburn. you probably won't read this with all the posts about the new manager but in some ways the money proves my point. Yes - there is obscene amounts of money being paid to players all over the Premiership but it's not just that what keeps the players of City, Liverpool Chelsea and I'll add another - Leeds playing to the max

It's the managers insistence of them putting in a shift - every game - or they are out

I wish wages weren't so high - football is losing its connection with the fans partly because of it, but these players are dedicated professionals driven on by their managers, their own desire to be successful and admired and also by their fans.

Not sure I agree with you Bob. I don't think for one minute Pep. Klopp or Tuchel don't demand their players put a shift in and they get it from them

It might not look like it at times but I also believe the vast majority of players want to do well. I don't think they want to have fans on their backs, they want to be applauded not booed

If we get the right manager in who gets the team playing to their strengths and raises the players confidence we will have a team that we can be proud of

It's finding that right manager that our board of non football people have a problem with.

Agree with you Lancer. Add to that a weak board scared to stand up to him and it's easy to see why we are in the mess we are in

Who do you like of the early front runners?

It's a testament to the club that Martinez would even consider us in a WC year when he's manager of one of the favorites. We have been weak in defense but is that because of the way Benitez set us up at the start of games. We've looked better in the second half of games but defense would be my main worry with Roberto

Potter - I would like him but can't see him coming to us. Not sure why exactly as we are a step up from Brighton in terms of potential

Rooney - people are saying it is too early in his managerial career but the same people are calling for Duncan with only 3 games experience albeit as interim manager until end of season.

I think we need an experienced interim manager (not Sam) to see out the season and avoid any relegation fears unless we can find a good fit quickly

Whoever it is let's push for a short term contract until he proves himself = similar to what Chelsea gave Tuchel.
