As we have an abundance of right footed left wingers I. E. Richarlison, Bernard, Iwobi, Bolasie,
Gordon, heres a novel idea what about a left footed right winger! Last summer we were linked with Zaha, and eventually signed Iwobi (you've guessed it! ) both right footed left wingers. Before anyone corrects me Iwobi played mostly on the left for Arsenal. So what about a left footer who's actually pretty good on the right? Would score a dozen goals a season and probably create the same amount. Has premier experience, definitely doesn't lack confidence and would cost about 20/ 25 mill. I think on his day can be a match winner just needs consistency and a run in the team which I'm sure Carlo would give him. His name Xherdan Shakiri what does anyone think? got to be worth a punt, Look what he did for a poor Stoke side at Goodison a few years ago.


1.) 09 May 2020 18:16:05
Sorry dplanno I think lockdown has got to you!
Shakiri? Are you serious? A Liverpool player? Always looks overweight and uninterested. Scores a few crackers I’ll give you that, but he’s not consistent. Can’t get into their staring 11. How do you think he’d score a dozen for us? Big no from me.

2.) 09 May 2020 19:53:40
Dont get me wrong I'm not fussed on an ex Liverpool player for obvious reasons. However he's a goal every 4 games that's close to 10/ 12 goals a season. As for him not starting for Liverpool really, hello Salah, Mane! Also he's a Liverpool player. So based on that logic you wouldn't want Van Dyke, Salah or Mane, let's stick with Walcott, Schneiderlin then. No wonder were we are and they're where they are.

3.) 09 May 2020 20:19:19
I was one of the ones that would have welcomed him here a few years ago. The guy was the main man at Stoke and backed himself to go across the park. He's done well on the rare chance he's had but surely he'd have preferred to have another 80 + matches under his belt? Sure, he's a champion league winner and fair play.
Certainly not the player we need these days. 3 years older, 3 years fatter.

Iwobi does his best work central. Gordon has had 5 minutes. Bolasie will never pull the shirt on again. So as much as it's a long old ed2 joke, we only have 2 LW and both Bernard and Rikky can play across the front. A RW is certainly needed though even if I disagree with every other word.

4.) 09 May 2020 20:58:06
Dplanno - I think you miss my point regards him being a Liverpool player. We rarely do business with them and the last player we bought from them was Gary abblett in 1992! 28 years ago.

I’d love Salah, mane and Virgil and was gutted when we pulled the plug on signing Virgil from Celtic.

There is very little chance of us buying any player from Liverpool let alone a world class player so your Salah, mane and Virgil comment a bit pointless - all teams would want them but Liverpool would only sell when they were no longer performing or they received a ridiculous offer.



05 Aug 2019 18:10:38
The statement put out by Everton denying a bid for Zaha was apparently so Palace could get replacements in. Apparently Palace are resigned to losing him, he wants to come will be top earner (over Bernard) This is the statement signing Moshiri wants. Could be last minute. don't shoot the messenger!


1.) 05 Aug 2019 18:29:48
Thanks for the info mate, very interesting.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 18:57:09
Hope that’s the case! . If we could get him and Somehow convince Chelsea to sell Zouma we’d have a fair shout at the top 6-4 imo.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 19:22:25
Now saying we are in talks to sign Zaha for £65 million and that Palace and Everton are trying to thrash out a deal, WOW what a front line we would have.

4.) 05 Aug 2019 19:26:53
Get the pair and they can be our Z Stars! 😍.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 22:10:57
RKZ sound more like a boy band than a front line😂.
Would be sweet to watch though.

Everton are the 11th highest spenders in Europe and the only team not to have qualified for Europe in that time! Oh to have the 100+million we wasted on Sigurdsson Klassen Bolasie Williams etc and other deadwood to numerous to mention. To think Liverpool got 140 million for Coutinho and then went out and bought Alison and VVD total outlay zilch! now that's how to work the market. To think with Mishary and Usmanovs billions we could have been buying Gabriel 25 ml Alan 30 mil Doucoure 25 ml Sarr/ Zaha 30 mil but because of the constraint of FFP will probably end up with just Alan and a couple of dodgy loan signings just typical of Everton to waste such a golden opportunity. Welcome to the madhouse!


1.) 16 Aug 2020 14:10:40
I would much rather be Everton than Liverpool who's reputation is in tatters across Europe from tapping players up and trying their hardest to get City expelled from Europe after city did them a massive favour reg hacking their scouting network yes we have wasted money but Rome wasn't built in a day Moshiri has made mistakes and thankfully it now looks like he has learnt his lesson so let's be patient and give brands the time he deserves to work his magic.

2.) 16 Aug 2020 16:09:20
And the money they spent on Skrtl, Mignolet, Lambert and plenty of others was a masterstroke too.

3.) 16 Aug 2020 16:54:29
It took Liverpool long enough to get it right in the transfer market, it's a bit short sighted to suggest they haven't wasted cash during the premier league and before. Transfers don't always go to plan, that's just part of football. Walsh was Moshiri's biggest mistake imo but it looks like Brands can get us back on track.

4.) 16 Aug 2020 17:53:04
I wouldn't mind having the success liverpool have had and some of there payers if it meant we had a bad reputation with other clubs.
The, way out clubs been managed over the last few years is criminal.

5.) 16 Aug 2020 20:54:15
I would much rather be Everton than Liverpool. - that’s where the statement stops imo. 👏👏. To then explain it as reputation being in tatters? Our spending has been nothing short of a laughing stock, manager appointments a joke and displays on the pitch ill fitting for our loyal fan base. ‘They’ have had really bad signings too, but have also won countless trophies and had the pleasure of allowing their fans to travel and watch them in CL finals across Europe - please let’s not compare the x2. We must strive for the best. Let’s not make Excellent the enemy of perfection . But we are somewhat of Excellent at the moment!

6.) 19 Aug 2020 00:37:45
Completely correct.



09 Aug 2020 09:42:27
What about signing gabriel or zouma 20/ 25mill allan 30 mill dalot loan. Then swop iwobi London boy and tosun who woy seems to like probably 20mill each for zaha (before anyone says about last season think he lost interest with palace) Sell mina 20 mill jj Kenny 10 mill and 1 or 2 pieces of dead wood 5 mill. Total outlay 50/ 55 mill incoming 35 mill. Net outlay 20ish mill. Job done. Happy days!


1.) 09 Aug 2020 10:44:46
Swap deals don't happen often, no way Palace would lose their star player and take Iwobi and Tosun at 40 mil of the value, to be honest, we would be lucky to get 8 mil each for them I think, but not as part of a Zaha deal!

2.) 09 Aug 2020 11:41:16
I take your point but, think we had an agreement at 20 mill for tosun if Roy was happy with him which he seemed to be before his injury. As for iwobi if we've paid 34mill for him and he's only worth 8 now I think brands needs sacking immediately. Thought he would go to Arsenal (zaha not tosun! ) but Willian put paid to that so can only see us as his only option, unfortunately. for him!

3.) 09 Aug 2020 21:35:26
Isn't tosun out until January.

4.) 10 Aug 2020 17:00:13
I think we may see a return to swap deals with the way the market could go under financial climate.



27 Jul 2020 11:23:54
Surely after yesterday we've got to sign a keeper, and whilst i'd love Pope he'd cost a lot of money we need for other positions (should of signed him 12 months ago when he was 3rd choice behind Heaton and Hart) No Ramsdale from Bournemouth for me got the size and the presence and more importantly seems to care! Unlike Pickford.




25 Jan 2020 18:35:49
Said about 2 years ago to sign Traore from Boro (about 12mill) was shot down, headless chicken I was told said all he needed was coaching about his final ball. That's what a good coach does with a player. Five goals and 10 assists in 35 games later! Gave Robertson a tough time the other night, has destroyed City twice. he's right footed and actually plays on the right. Imagine Ricky, DCL, Moise and Traore. Wonder how much youd pay for him now? Slightly better stats than Walcott and Iwobi! But hey let's sign Everton from Brazil (unproven) or Hirving Lozano who's been a flop at Napoli. Both about 30mill plus and guess what both left wingers. Need another 1 of them like we need a hole in the head. The recruitment at Everton is a joke, you couldn't make it up. No wonder were close to breaking FFP rules.


1.) 25 Jan 2020 19:30:54
But Traore was unproven in the Prem when you say you were getting stick for suggesting him. Every player needs time. And whilst it’s easy to slate our poor signings wouldn’t it be better to give them some time too like the same years that traore had. Our recruitment has been both excellent and poor. Digne, Gomes, Richarlison already good. Yes there are others that are poor. I wouldn’t call the whole thing a joke though.

2.) 25 Jan 2020 20:48:48
All through Silvas tenure they were seeking a left footed right winger, it’s all this cutting inside malarkey
Ancelotti might favour a right footed right winger for his 442 though.

3.) 25 Jan 2020 21:05:45
Either way ST, we will then need a left footed - left winger 🤯.

4.) 25 Jan 2020 21:16:25
With regards to Traore you say every player needs time to prove himself. Once he's proved himself isn't that when you have to pay 30 to 50mill?
Surely everyone could see he had pace, that he just needed coaching. Surely the idea is to spot a players potential (I. e. Gueye) before anyone else does. Isn't that what we pay a scout for?

5.) 26 Jan 2020 04:03:38
Yes you’re right. But scouts don’t always get it right. You mention Gueye, well it was Steve Walsh who brought him in. The same Steve Walsh that got us Sandro. Probably our best and worst signing right there.

6.) 26 Jan 2020 05:38:18
In all honesty, dplanno, we could have bought him from Boro but the managers we had before CA probably wouldn't have taken him to the next level. Credit to Nunes for improving him as much as he has.

7.) 26 Jan 2020 07:14:19
Wolves took the chance and will make a ton of cash and have a player on their hands but his "transformation" from well documented "headless chicken" to "where did that come from" is a rarified turn around.

You win some you lose some. Silva wouldn't have had the skill set to get him to this level. Just look at his back catalogue of opportunities and see he really was past last chance. Good on him, he's a beast but it's no transfer model. That's just lucky that he finally got a chance and took it for a change. Been pretty awful anti climax for years.

He'd be amazing but never going to happen. Also with his bulk, there is zero chance he will have a long stay in the game. He will fade fast from 30 unless he tones down. It's just unsustainable.

8.) 26 Jan 2020 11:03:24
Theo Walcott is a perfect example. We've all been waiting 12 years for his pace to be matched with an end product and we're still waiting.

It is literally a flip of a coin.

9.) 26 Jan 2020 12:23:09
Traore was just a case in point think 2 years ago for 12mill? he was a no brainer. You say scouts make good and bad recomendations I. e. Gueye then Sandro and your right. Then Bolasie Klaessen Schneiderlin Siggurdson Tosun Walcott and more who suggested them? We've lost a fortune on them. I thought the idea was to buy players who go up in value. Heres some recomendations from Liverpools scouts. Mane 34mill worth now 100 plus, Firmono 20mill? worth 80 plus, Salah 40mill worth 100 plus, VVD 75mill worth 100 plus. And finally Robertson 8mill (he makes my case regarding Traore) I'm even worried now Brands (who I used to rate) is in charge, we need a right winger so let's sign Iwobi, who actually played for Arsenal on the LEFT for 35mill, when the lad is actually worth about 17mill if that. As I said frightening!

10.) 26 Jan 2020 12:26:14
England V Croatia under Cappello was the guys high water mark. Oh and didn't he have 1 season where he banged in about 10 in 12 games once?

11.) 26 Jan 2020 12:32:09
You don't need to pick and choose the stats that suit DPL. All we had for 20 years was laughing at the money LFC have wasted on rubbish over the years when we were firmly shopping in the bargain baskets.
You made a good debate but it's not a thread to get worked up over mate.

12.) 26 Jan 2020 13:36:50
What players are worth and what they transfer for is too difficult to nail down to a number like you’ve done with Iwobi. I agree that Liverpool have players who are worth those figures but we are talking about the champions designate here. We have players also that will make us profit. Richarlison, Bernard, DCL, Digne, Coleman, Gomes, Kean being some obvious ones. Some we paid a lot for and others were free. But they are all likely to bring a good return. Not all bought off the back of the same scouts but plenty to shout about.

13.) 26 Jan 2020 13:49:23
You're a bundle of laughs aren't you dplanno.
I was one of those who thought he was a headless chicken. Yes he was very very quick but he literally had nothing else to his game. Even last season he struggled when he joined Wolves.
Credit to the lad he has obviously worked hard and looks to have a bright future. A couple of years ago though, he was indeed an unproven waste of money! You said surely we should have signed him because everyone could see he has pace - well Usain Bolt is still putting himself out there, should we sign him?

14.) 26 Jan 2020 14:41:38
Let's not sign players on one good season anymore please.
Let Traore have more than half a good season before pumping loads of money on him.

15.) 26 Jan 2020 16:02:26
impressive I can't remember what I said yesterday mate.



22 Jan 2020 13:32:28
Just when you think Everton can't embarrass you anymore by getting beat by a bunch of kids they let a two goal lead slip in the last 2 minutes of injury time, as for Pickford completely misses punch for the first goal and the second goal he is a foot behind the line when he catches it with his feet a further 3 foot back what's he doing standing four feet behind the line no sorry not good enough and certainly not big enough have a mate who works in the players Lounge said he's the most arrogant person you'll ever come across really need to get shut of him. Could of been eight ahead of Spurs looking at the top 6 if it wasnt for him.


1.) 22 Jan 2020 15:02:43
If you want a goalkeeper who commands his box, is good at crosses, look no further than Burnley’s pope.

If Pickford has a good Euro and a good offer comes in, I would look to cash in when his stock will be higher, but only if we get cover in first.

2.) 22 Jan 2020 14:56:07
You need to watch the game again it was a freak result and for 94 mins we where in total control no wonder managers don't work out and players can't wait to leave when we have fans who can't wait to jump all over the players when we lose a lead 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ I'm actually embarrassed by social media and our fans today you would think we had be battarded 6-0.

Got a sneaky feeling were going to sign Zaha for not very much money. Palace on verge of signing Benrahma from Brentford who plays in Zahas position. The lad has stated he wants to come to us (where else could he go? ) Can play right or left that would allow Richy to come inside. We've got Bolasie a Palace favourite, Tosun who Woy admires and an interesting one Iwobi who couldn't even get on the bench on Sunday. If this were to happen think we'd be serious top 4 challengers, or am I getting ahead of myself?

3 great signings hopefully! don't you just love it when these greedy clubs get their comeuppance? Docoure last year 36mill offer refused now 18/ 20 mill accepted, Zaha last year 70mill? offer refused now probably accept 30 mill. Should give them Tosun and Iwobi straight swop no cash. Happy days! Occasionally it's still good to be a blue!

Carlo has said he will give Moise Keane game time this season. So if Raiola is trying to dictate where he goes he's wasting his time, the effort we put in to get him suggests that. If Everton sold him behind Carlos back we'd be looking for new manager. Sick of these agents dictating to clubs.


{Ed002's Note - If Everton are happy with a disgruntled player then fine - obviously it further limites the money available.}

Think if we play 3 centre backs it should be Holgate right Kean central and Godfrey left who's happy there. Think Kean who is slow on the turn would be happier with those two who both have pace alongside him. there's also Braithwaite who's left sided and will do a job in the future, so I think Mina could be off as I don't think we need 5 CB's. Would be sorry to see him go as I think he's good in the dressing room and you can't help but smile when he scored against Brighton and you see him with the other players but sadly he is error prone and wow! so slow.

Think there could be a couple of interesting changes tomorrow Bernard should keep his place after a decent game plus scoring against Utd, i'd play him as a 10 between Allan and Doucoure, got to be better than Siggi and Gomes. i'd also have Holgate at RB he'd provide more cover behind James plus I think it's time to see what Godfrey can do at CB he's happy on the left, we haven't paid 25mill for him to sit on the bench and every one else has had a go let's see what he can do, we can't keep conceding the goals were doing. We desperately need 3 points tomorrow.

The clearance for their first goal is total arrogance, their second he flapped at it like a little schoolgirl. The frightening thing is he doesn't seem to think he's ever at fault. The first goal he's pointing at people to blame, just clear it if there's no other option. He'll cost us this season big time if he's not replaced soon.

We'd just won the cup against Watford with a young side, people were saying we were on the verge of something big the next season, how right they were! First game following season Spurs at home we parade the cup, crowds buzzing, everyone's optimistic and typical Everton we get beat 4-1.
