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

1.) 09 Aug 2019 07:46:36
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?

5 Players in isolation

Do we still think Florida was a good idea?
Have we thought about whether the game should be postponed?

Could it get any worse?

bw2412 v2.0

{Ed002's Note - Everton cannot postpose the game.}

1.) 13 Aug 2021 13:58:31
What are the rules this season ED? Have they changed from last season? I don't know who the 5 are except James is apparently one of them

If all 5 are first teamers does that make a difference

Not questioning what you are saying - I really don't know the answers but think you might


{Ed002's Note - There were no rules last year and that stays the same. There is guidance for the PL Board which says if a club have 14 players available from their named first team squad, then there should be no postponement.}

2.) 13 Aug 2021 14:07:01
Thanks ED

Appreciate it.

3.) 13 Aug 2021 15:36:04
Think the FA make the rules up as they go along.

Sure Man City managed to postpone the game with us last season when they only had a few out with C.V.

Not sure it’ll matter tomorrow as Rodriguez doesn’t appear to be in Rafas plans anyway.

DCL and Richarlison available which is good news. Roll on tomorrow be good to have the fans back.

4.) 13 Aug 2021 16:38:06
Defo GB be nice to have the fans back let's hope the lads can put good shift in and hopefully pick up 3 points aswell.

5.) 13 Aug 2021 18:17:40
Why is anyone even asking for the game to be postponed? To the best of our knowledge James, 2 of Kean, Gbamim, Gomes and 2 others, who definitely aren't DCL and Richy. So in short 3 players who wouldn't have started anyway and 2 more.

6.) 13 Aug 2021 20:20:15
Not sure it’s Gbamin as he was in the latest training video - didn’t see Gomes, kean or Rodriguez in that video.

7.) 13 Aug 2021 21:43:36
Cancel citing sars2. Worked for City.



18 Jul 2021 08:25:12
Less than 4 weeks to go until we have our first match in the PL and only a week until we have our first serious pre season match over in American

Have we brought in any reinforcements - NO Have we got rid of any of our squad deemed no longer required to make funds available - NO

Have we sorted out our right hand side - NO Have we added creativity in attack - NO

Everything hunky dory then?

bw2412 v2.0

1.) 18 Jul 2021 09:45:39
Yes bw everything is hunky dory.

We’ve got a new manager who seems to actually be getting the players fit for the start of the season rather than what we had last season were the players looked like they could only play 30 minutes!

If he gets the squad fit and able to actually still be playing at 94 minutes plus it’ll be like we’ve got a whole new squad!

2.) 18 Jul 2021 10:12:33
Was that at the start of last season when we went 4 games out of 4 in the league and 8 games unbeaten

No one was saying we didn't have the legs then. It was only later that we realised we didn't have the squad strength and what have we done to improve it in time for any new players to integrate properly before the pre-season games get under way?

I realise Benitez was appointed late but this is not the way to start the season.

3.) 18 Jul 2021 10:17:50
To be honest we started last season very well, so I'm not sure what you are getting add regarding preseason? If the players tired perhaps the shortened pre season had more to do with it?

Moyes used to go to extremes to work on fitness during pre season as I recall which may well have led to us often being slow starters under his watch. Hopefully Rafa can strike a balance.

As far as players go, very little activity has taken place yet, and given we had no manager that's not surprising. What kind of Manager walks into a new job and fires loads of staff because someone else told them they are no good? A good manager would give them at least a chance in early pre season to show what they can do.

4.) 18 Jul 2021 11:19:27
Players have been involved in multiple tournaments around the world so not surprising that we have not seen much transfer activity. Still time for some squad strengthening.

5.) 18 Jul 2021 11:29:02
To get players out someone has to want to buy them and more importantly pay their wages. What do you want the club to do give all the unwanted players free transfers and pay their wages until their contracts expire?

6.) 18 Jul 2021 11:58:19
BW we started the season well I’ll give you that but most games the players were knackered after the first half.

We had the least fit squad in the league last season and it was only our good start to the season that saved us from a relegation fight.

I want the players fit and able to play 90+ minutes every game of the season not just the first 8 games.

The league is a marathon not a sprint and I have every confidence Rafa will get these players fitter than they’ve ever been which means we can compete all season long.

If there are players hat don’t agree with his methods we can look at moving them on.

Also Rafa only been here 2 weeks so will need time to assess his squad and what he needs. For all we know he’s swapped players positions around and we not need the cover we thought we did at the end of last season.

Chill out and enjoy the ride.

7.) 18 Jul 2021 13:59:09
As I recall last summer we were crying out for midfield reinforcements. Not much happening, then BANG! Within 5 days we had signed Allan, James and Decoure.

Might not be like that this summer but at least that’s reassuring enough for me not to get too worried about the lack of activity thus far.

8.) 18 Jul 2021 14:16:44
Relax lads… almost no transfers have been completed by Prem teams. Many are in a far worse position than us - Palace for example. I’m pleased that Rafa is taking time to assess the squad before buying. No more expensive flops needed. 3 or 4 good solid signings and we’ll be good to go. We still have the squad that blitzed the start of last season.

9.) 18 Jul 2021 12:33:26
We have a manager at least….

10.) 18 Jul 2021 15:34:01
Not sure if its groundhog day I should be using as an example or whether most football fans have annual amnesia.

Every single season is exactly the same and every single season teams buy and sell players. We've had it where we signed players in August and little before. The last day of transfer day is usually ram packed with buying and selling.

Stay calm, sit back, read some reports from how training is going, have a watch of the pre season games, don't be worried if we lose them and settle down to get ready for the new season.

11.) 18 Jul 2021 15:40:03
We finished 7 points off champs league, imagine what a fit and healthy Everton could do.
A sprinkling of pace and there is no reason this squad can't make Europe of some kind.



18 Jun 2021 12:47:12

Could you explain to me how any relationships between an agent like Mendes, his client Nuno and the club works?

The normal relationship was that the agent worked for the client and assisted them in negotiations, PR and arranging endorsements etc. The agent would receive a % of the clients income from this for his assistance
How does it now work? Does someone like Nuno have to encourage the purchase of Mendes other clients i. e. players in preference to other players. Does Nuno then get some payment for doing this

I'm just interested to see what has changed, if anything?


bw2412 v2.0

{Ed002's Note - The agent would deal with the owner and Brands over transfers and the coach is not on a percentage for his JMs clients joining.}

1.) 18 Jun 2021 13:12:43
Thanks ED. Appreciate you getting back so quickly. So what was the problem with Nuno with CP and Everton and their concerns with Mendy? Or is it all made up?

{Ed002's Note - My understanding is one of those in the decision process did not want NES.}

2.) 18 Jun 2021 17:33:36
I can guess who that was and thank goodness for that.



14 Jun 2021 03:08:29
Here's how I see our squad

GK Pickford, Virginia, Tyrer. ANO
RB Coleman, ANO
CB Godfrey, Keane, Holgate, Branthwaite, Mina
LB Digne, Nkounkou, Small
MF Allan, Doucore, James, Gbamin, ANO, ANO
Attack Ricky, DCL, ANO, ANO

Decisions to be taken Siggy, Gomes, Bernard, Delph, Davies, Gordon, Simms, John, other U23's. Some might have to be sold to generate funds, some could be squad players and some might need to go out on loan

If I go through the ANO's I've identified.

GK I think it would be better for Virginias development that he goes out on loan so we need back up or competition for Pickford. Plenty available and at a low cost

RB Key signing. Coleman has been a great player for us but he now needs to be just a backup to whoever we sign with Holgate or Godfrey also filling in if absolutely necessary

MF One key signing and second would be nice if we still have any doubts on Gbamin or, if we can't sell them on is it Davies, Siggy or Gomes

Attack right side key signing, Can the second be covered by Iwobi, Gordon or Simms

3 key signings plus a goalkeeper

Whoever the manager is it needs to be done this window - not lose another year because we don't like doing business in January

Sort the manager out and get going Brands. Pre season training looms.

bw2412 v2.0

1.) 14 Jun 2021 04:44:20
Bw very decent post friend.

Those positions are vital to be filled and I'm sure the club are working on them regardless of the new boss.

I think out of all the players that we could sell, I would keep Davies and soggy. They both showed glimpses last season of having something to offer off the bench or due to injuries.

Hope gbamin stays fit. Looked really good in his very first game.

Ideally we would move on as many players as we can that are fringe players or deadwood.

Need 2 for each position, like your list. Any injuries and we have an U23 squad to cover. Qe will never know if they are good enough if they don't play.

I can see richy going tbh and we could get good money for him.

We need young, hungry players willing to work hard to improve and there are loads in bottom prem or championship for positions we need.

Dwight mcneill, David Brooks, Ivan toney, tariq lamptey, Darnell furlong, etc.

That's before brands has worked his magic abroad.

As usual I am optimistic for a good season under a new boss. All we can do is get behind the lads wearing the shirt and reassess come Christmas.

2.) 14 Jun 2021 05:25:06
Thanks geoffjohno

You might be right on Ricky but if he does we'll get good money for him and it will provide the funds to replace him

I'm not in disagreement with you on Davies but, for me, after what is it 4 years I still don't know what his position is. As a defensive midfielder he gives the ball away too much and as an attacking midfielder 0 goals and 1 assist all season says it all. However, if I had to choose to keep out of Gomes, Davies, Delph I'd choose Davies but if I got a good offer for him I'd take it

I'm sure Brands is working hard on signings but I do feel we are also waiting for the new manager to be agreed so he can concur with any decisions. Whether we've missed anybody or will miss out on others I don't know but it needs sorting out fast or let Brands make the decisions.

3.) 14 Jun 2021 07:46:58
If the Manager is Perez, Richarlison will be striker. What that means for DCL! I have no clue.

4.) 14 Jun 2021 13:47:08
I missed Iwobi off my post. For me he's in the sell and generate some funds category

Also what are peoples views on Conor Gallagher? He played for West Brom on a loan from Chelsea last season. Apparently he would like to try and get a place in the Chelsea squad but he is attracting interest from Crystal Palace with a fee of about 15m mentioned. He was West Broms young player of the year last year. He's not as creative/ attack minded as I would want but I think he is an improvement over Gomes or Davies.

5.) 14 Jun 2021 08:42:52
Sorry BCT but your post is going over my head

Can you explain?

6.) 14 Jun 2021 20:29:46

It just gets weirder and weirder.

Echo now saying CP have stopped negotiations with Nuno due to his excessive demands

If he had picked CP over us I hope we don't go back to him.

bw2412 v2.0

1.) 09 Jun 2021 09:52:18
Nuno now favourite for Everton job according to the betting.
He’s gone out to 33/ 1 for palace job having been 1/ 5 last night.
After all the talk yesterday of him going to be announced as palace manager will be somewhat disappointed if we now appoint him, particularly after Galtier links.

2.) 09 Jun 2021 10:29:31
Think if we appoint him now it will be PR disaster, the fans will turn against him before the first ball is kicked.

3.) 09 Jun 2021 10:21:36
Il be very happy if we can get nuno over the line just hoping we can propose a good deal for him to join give him least 4_5 years to sort the club from top to bottom.

4.) 09 Jun 2021 10:56:00
What does good deal mean - pay him over the odds?
4-5 year deal so he can be guaranteed a good payoff if he doesn't prove himself and is sacked after 2?
Same for his backroom team which some consider is overloaded

All for a man who, it looks to all intents and purposes, picked CP over us
Thank god I'm not a decision maker at EFC because it would be a quick decision - NO.

5.) 09 Jun 2021 10:59:10
Didn't he chose CP over us? Disaster wrote all over it now I'm afraid. Don't get me wrong I wanted him at the start And would have been happy if we got him
Maybe it's all just paper talk I don't know but if was going to CP or not but most fans I have spoken to don't want him.

6.) 09 Jun 2021 10:37:22
That's a fair point the narrative will be Everton sign manager not good enough for Palace.

7.) 09 Jun 2021 10:45:22
Agree with you Skylark

Whether it's down to him, to Everton or a mixture of the two, I've seen no denial that he had picked CP over us and they could have done that as soon as the rumours started

For me - I don't want him now and I don't see what they can do to put it right.

8.) 09 Jun 2021 11:02:38
I’m with skylark on this.
Apparently he was our number 1 choice but we don’t appoint as backroom staff issues. He then he appears to be nailed on for palace but that falls through allegedly due to his demands.
All sounds a bit iffy

At to that we are then linked with Galtier - a manager that looks like would suit us perfectly.

Almost like on bullseye - look at what you could have won 😂.

9.) 09 Jun 2021 11:43:38
Like good proposition in terms of what everton can offer him he needs time for starters he needs to try get rid of few players that not pulling tress maybe he can have a budget to address few key areas aswell but I would happily support him and give him good few years than likes of howe or Potter.

10.) 09 Jun 2021 11:49:54
The thing we've got to remember is that our 'number one' target has only come from the press. When CA first left last week, it was reported that we were wanting to talk to numerous managers. Nuno would have come into this bracket, especially since he had just left another premier league team.
Many of the names are coming from sites like ssn and, let's be honest, they profit from throwing names in the hat on a daily basis and fans go to their betting site for a punt! Yes, I'm a sceltical old t*at!
From a personal perspective, I don't want Nuno to become manager and really hope he's screwed his chances! I hope the links to Galtier are with substance as I think he would be a decent fit for us. failing that, the only other name I can see that would be good for the job is Rafa. Any of the other names that have been suggested don't fill me with any confidence that they will move us forward. Just my opinion on the situation!

11.) 09 Jun 2021 14:14:03
Bluepotato - I have seen it reported in press he was one of our targets.
However I’m sure that Ed002 said he was our number one target and he’s very knowledgeable when it comes to things like this.

12.) 09 Jun 2021 15:03:09
Gingerdan, unless I hear it straight from the club then it's all speculation to me mate. I don't doubt ed002's knowledge, I'm just sceltical as I said! Nuno was one of the first we had contact with but he was never going to be the only candidate. We will soon see mate.

13.) 09 Jun 2021 16:48:05
This bloody phone! In both posts, I meant sceltical, not sure why it keeps changing!

14.) 09 Jun 2021 18:42:27

Rodrigues is one of the 5 isolating due to C.V. Not sure about Kean

If it is C.V. related maybe we are overreacting a tad and some of the criticism should go to the people who still went ahead with the trip to Florida?

Age does matter. Money, whether it's ours or not, does matter. How many posters has there been on this site moaning about players on packages they can't get anywhere else being a massive burden on the club and stopping us finding replacements
He's 30 which isn't that old for a centre back but a 4 year contract has been mentioned which, if true (big if) could be a hindrance in the future and his wages are currently very high. It seems a risk and could cause FFP problems for a position we are not that badly off in.

He certainly doesn't deserve to be 19th BUT

Plus points - he's spent a fortune

Negatives - He's wasted a fortune
He hasn't a clue how to run a football club

Love his willingness to invest but just wish he had the sense to invest wisely instead of mis-managing.

This whole saga appears to have been handled badly and we are all guilty of having opinions not knowing all the facts

We know James has been told to find another club but was he sat down and told

James - we are in a mess due to FFP regulations and need to reduce the wage bill and we'd appreciate it if you helped us by finding another club

or was it

James - F O Find another club. We don't want you

Why did it get out to the press? Did Rafa want to be seen as the Big Man or did someone else at Everton leak it to attract possible suitors. Maybe James team leaked it for their own purposes

We simply don't know but relations between James and Rafa/ the club seem to be strained

Now we have 2 totally different stories about James being not available for next couple of games or he is returning to training today. Who knows which, if any, are true and they are both on the Goodison News website so even they don't know what is happening.
