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.

There's something wrong in the camp. It looks like the younger players are being frozen out.
Why wasn't Nkounku playing yesterday? He's got the energy to do the wing back role which would have freed Iwobi to see if he could repeat the lasts weeks performance on the right. I'm not a big fan of Kenny but if he can't get in at right wing back in front of Tom Davies then he's got to be looking at leaving soon
Which brings is to Gordon - why can't he get into the match day squad when Siggy, Bernard, Gomez and Tosun are all included. Again - we are going to lose him if it carries on like this.
Does anyone know what is going on?

I totally agree mate just posted something along similar lines.



10 Nov 2020 10:05:55
Let's be honest, if CA wasn't our manager we probably would not have been able to attract Allan and Rodrigues to Goodison and maybe not even Dacoure. These 3 have definitely strengthened the team and it looks like CA will attract more quality signings going forward so that's a positive sign of progress,

Being greedy though I am concerned with some of CA's choices / substitutions
I don't understand Bernard and Iwobi constantly getting the nod over Gordon. People will say you don't see them in training and you're right I don't but I'm seeing them in matches and they don't cut it in matches
By the same token either Gomes or Siggy are playing every week and everybody can see they are struggling. CA has to come up with an answer
Another one that I don't understand is Tosun coming on the last 2 games. Apart from the announcer telling us he has come on I've never seen or heard of him then throughout the rest of the match and there's nobody to put crosses in.
On the whole I like what CA has achieved but I am still worried in places.

Agreed, he has these expensive squad members who are just not doing it and then some young players who have little experience. I think he is trying to push the likes of Siggy, Gomes and Iwobi to the level they should be playing. CA believes in his ability and expects that he can improve the quality of these players. I do see a stubborn streak in CA in that he maybe he continues on this strategy too long. Sooner or later he will get fed up and drop and eventually get rid. He has brought in three players who have improved the side and his objective is obviously going to be to continue this recruitment policy although it may well be dictated by financial aspects.
I do hope that he changes his mind and gives Gordon and Simms a chance in the near future.

2.) 10 Nov 2020 19:07:22
Maybe it’s putting them in the shop window πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
Only reason I can think of.

3.) 10 Nov 2020 19:33:09
You got to feel for Ancelotti, he knows his best 11 but take 2,3or4 out and were poor. A half fit Rodriguez is preffered over Iwobi and that says everything. Once Ricky is back and Rodriguez is fit we'll look a different side.
Defensively its been individual errors and that is mostly concentration. Having Holgate back will definitely help once he's settled back in. Question is, who's his defensive partner?

{Ed025's Note - keane all day for me smit, he has been one of our better players this season mate..

4.) 10 Nov 2020 19:45:12
Defo mate good post.

5.) 10 Nov 2020 20:21:25
Holgate and Keane not good enough for me I would be happy if they both where sold.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think you would be happy if you seen a chair walk skylark.. :)

6.) 10 Nov 2020 20:32:42
Not at the moment ed, Keane had a few good games at the start of the season but has been aufull lately and was terrible last season holgate is not is also hot and cold . just not for me I'm afraid ed, maybe being a blue has made me miserable 😠.

{Ed025's Note - we all get like that at times skylark, its what everton does to you mate..

7.) 10 Nov 2020 20:48:17
Lol. OK skylark. I have to admit, keane has been good and better than Mina.
I like Holgate I think since he threw Firming into the advertising board. I mean what's not to like.

8.) 10 Nov 2020 21:19:59
What I would like to know Ed is where is Dark clouds, he normally appears like a fart in the wind when we lose a couple.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know mate..

9.) 10 Nov 2020 23:44:48
I’m starting to think dark clouds and skylark are one and the same!

10.) 11 Nov 2020 07:03:04
Because of I don't rate sigs, holgate, Keane, iwobi, gomes, Mina, Delph, Pickford, Bernard, 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣. Ok let's keep them and just sit mid table again . thought I was a secret red? Now I'm dark clouds. Wonder what I will be called next for having a go at players that don't perform . no wonder dark clouds has disappeared . I wonder if gingerdan is really M Keane πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

11.) 11 Nov 2020 09:11:27
You're certainly a miserable Skylark but I don't know you well enough to know whether it's because you are a blue or not or maybe you don't like social distancing. Cheer up - it will get better- one day

I don't know CA's motivation for sticking with Bernard/ Iwobi over Gordon or Siggy/ Gomes and now even Tosun over simms. Maybe he does rate them and think he can improve them, maybe he is just putting them in the shop window for Xmas transfer window. All I worry about is we still need to progress and win points and we need to cultivate our youth coming forward rather than possibly making them look elsewhere

At the end of the day though he is our manager, with a far better CV than mine so I will have to continue to trust in him and his judgement (until I can say I told you so and he should have done it sooner) . DCL is living proof he knows what he is doing.

12.) 11 Nov 2020 09:16:03
''Dark Clouds'' lol love it, got to be someone's paranoid real personality, Skylark? Hmmm why would he bother? πŸ€” Smitty? that bloody avi might be a clue πŸ˜‰

However the one we would never suspect is probably our man Dun duun duuuun Guernsey Blue lol 🀣

Just kidding GB honestly! πŸ˜‡.

13.) 11 Nov 2020 09:49:40
Well if we are putting them in the shop window it would have to be β€œBuy one, get one Free”.

14.) 11 Nov 2020 10:26:39
Maybe dark clouds is ed02 blue247 . and I didn't think dark clouds was that miserable compared to me.



06 Oct 2020 00:35:57
A good window. 4 players in who have already proved their worth in matches,
Godfrey looks a good buy/ investment in the future
A goalkeeper in who should provide some cover/ backup to Pickford
Walcott out on loan - 50% of wages covered. Sandro out so another chunk of wages saved.
Hopefully Besic, Bolassie off to the EPL next week
Thanks Marcus and Carlo.

I meant to say

A goalkeeper in who should provide some cover/ challenge to Pickford.

2.) 06 Oct 2020 07:13:43
Thats my only criticism bw. A goalkeeper who is 3rd choice at his Club a challenge for Pickford? Are our existing two, really not up to it? As for the rest brilliant, our best strategy for years. Ancelloti and Brands (get him signed up Everton) ! What a driving force. Oh! and keep those advisors away Mr Moshri.

3.) 06 Oct 2020 09:27:45
Not sure about being 3rd choice at a club is a reflection on a players ability, more about what the management team thinks. Don't forget our most creative player was third/ fourth choice at his previous team.

4.) 06 Oct 2020 10:24:31
Romero is 3rd choice at United, behind a very error prone keeper and is 3 years older and everyone says he would have been a better option.

5.) 06 Oct 2020 12:26:23
I have to be honest I know very little about the new keeper but that doesn't matter. What matters is that Carlo and Marcus rated him enough to sign him

That's good enough for me after seeing Allan, Doucoure, Rodrigues and Nkounkou play after Carlo and Marcus signed them

Looking forward now for the Liverpool which we can go into full of confidence




03 Oct 2020 17:04:16
Listen - we're 4 out of 4 in the league. Won 3 Caroabo ties so into quarters

Just enjoy. Some players have played better, Some not so much but the team has won every time

Just enjoy

We are Everton

Let's be honest - I didn't think we played as good as we did against Spurs but Hey - 2 games 6 points and the side is still getting used to the new players

Early days but happy so far. Still some work to be done on the defense but we're showing a lot more creatively

Onwards and upwards

BlueDanny -You are right about fans from abroad travelling to home games and I'm totally unclear on the numbers but that is totally different to travelling to away games. The location of home games are the same every match so airlines can put extra flights into their scheduling and fans can also regularise their accomodation, For away games it is a different city every week. Flights won't be as plentiful so more expensive, accommodation will have to be arranged, possibly at a premium. Sure, a good travel agent can do most of this for you but how many of our away support drive or coach to matches, don't stay overnight and lose a day of their weekend, not all weekend.

I believe regular away supporters will decrease without any increase in fans going to home games from abroad - unless of course the new leagues are unsuccessful and there are therefore more seats available but, if they are unsuccessful, why would they want to go?

One thing we do agree upon is that the game is becoming unaffordable to the English working class. Long term that might be it's death-knell.

There's one other point I'd like to make. I think the days of mega money TV deals are beginning to come to an end. In Thailand I have an Android TV box, readily available from Amazon or any other internet selling site and here in Thailand, it is not illegal to stream live sporting events so I can get SKY, BT, BEIN Sports, NBCSN and a myriad of foreign sites showing the matches live without me paying any fees except standard internet access. I could also get these on any Android phone with the right APP. It's the same throughout Asia and the TV companies have tried but failed to stop this growing trend.

It's not legal to do this in the UK but it is done. I learnt how to do it whilst in the UK. There's been attempts to stop people doing it in the UK but it's being done more and more and, as I said it's common place in Thailand and all through Asia

TV companies are going to see revenues dropping because of this and the corona virus will compound it. Will pub landlords continue to pay Β£100's, Β£1000's to show football if they are half full due to social distancing. Will fans continue to pay high subscriptions that only widen the gap between themselves and the clubs/ players or will they move more and more onto streaming sites, legally or illegally

There will still be advertising revenues but will they be able to sustain their fees

I'd be very surprised if the revenue from games can be maintained long term

Also, has anyone thought about the travelling fans who go to away matches? How are they going to afford the increased costs or find the additional time away from family/ work, never mind the new restrictions to travel caused by Covid 19.

I'm living in Thailand now. I'm only mentioning that as the 6-7 hour time difference between the UK and Thailand has affected my viewing patterns

I still watch all the Everton games. Everton is my team and I would want to watch them whatever league they are in, whether it be Premier, the Championship or even lower
Where my viewing has changed though is when I was in the UK I would watch any Premier game that was on the box but now, when it is being shown late evening or even early morning if it is a UK night match most times (even a top of the table clash) I can't be bothered to stay up. I think any cross time zone league would struggle for the same reason. Is there any other sport that has shown that such an arrangement works? How many supporters say they support their team but are not as bothered about their national side playing in the world cup or similar international tournaments

I'm also not interested in watching different leagues in different countries. I don't watch Barcelona even though Messi plays for them. I don't watch Juventus just to see Ronaldo. I want to watch Everton and the teams they play

I have 3 grown up sons in the UK - all of them deserters who don't support Everton. If I was a broadcaster the thing that would worry me is that they are all less interested in football than I am. It's a very, very small sample but I believe interest in football is on the wane. The gap between players and normal people is widening

I think the TV channels and the top sides can see this and so they are looking to develop new viewers but the new viewers they want are in the developing markets such as China, the US, India, Asia Pacific etc. Personally, I believe the new viewers they will attract will not be as big as they think due to time differences and will not compensate for the the viewers they will lose such as myself, other Evertonians, Newcastle, Wolves, Napoli, Schalke, other team supporters who want to support their team, not some team 100's. 1000's of miles away with no 'connection' to them.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with all of that bw, i too have 2 sons who are deserters so i what you mean and i would not watch the breakaway league either mate if everton were not involved..

I think I agree with you gibbo. He's had a nightmare at Arsenal but before Arsenal Emery had a very good CV and was highly regarded.

I've only read Pereira's CV on the Echo and it's not that exciting - some successes but lower leagues and he's not stayed anywhere too long

Out of the 2 I'd say Emery if he has recovered enough from Arsenal but hopefully there are others in the hat that appeal more.

Woburns got a good side there but Branthwaite needs a consideration - he's probably the best left sided central defender we have although I recognise he is very young and there could be blips. I'd think about putting him in and moving Holgate into midfield instead of Dacoure

Rodrigues and Ricky could swap places maybe but would work if very fluid in their positioning.

We have definitely made progress with CA in charge and I think we will continue to progress with him in charge
I agree with Gingerdan this is the time for us to show patience. It is night and day our side with Allan, Rodrigues and Doucoure in it. DCL has been a revelation
Yes, there are still some frustrations/ weaknesses but give him time - he is not God - he can't do it in 7 days.

We definitely weren't good today. We just didn't click and we missed Ricky and Coleman.

What was different from last season though was I came away disappointed with the performance, not the effort

We're back to earth but still in the game.
