If we looking at neres and el ghazi, do you reckon richarlison is off? We surely don't need another winger.


1.) 12 Jan 2022 08:00:54
Wouldn't surprise me. Should get a load of money for him. 70 Million at least under the current climate . I know he gets hammered in games but he's too theatrical and falls over as if he has been shot. We don't need wingers we need a creative midfielder and a centre half!

2.) 12 Jan 2022 09:26:08
Not only a very good player but probably if not the hardest, one of the hardest working players we have.

3.) 12 Jan 2022 09:59:58
Richarleson has been one of, if not our best performing player over the last three seasons. As for falling over theatrically then he is no worse than Vardy, Salla, Kane and Zaha all players that I would personally love to see at Everton. As for a 70m price tag I don't think many clubs would offer anywhere near that under the current climate.

4.) 12 Jan 2022 10:03:30
Spot on DFS.

5.) 12 Jan 2022 11:22:19
I'd be gutted if we sell Richie this next 12 months, doesn't stop running or sulking, he looks like he's won the lottery but lost his ticket, but he's one of our top players. And El ghazi. Opinions anyone?

6.) 12 Jan 2022 11:28:34
Seems inevitable that he’ll move on sooner or later, but I hope it’s later.

7.) 12 Jan 2022 11:41:02
So now we have fans turning on Richarlison…really? Wow!
Go support anther club.

{Ed025's Note - hes one one i would keep BA, has heart and gives his all every game, if the others had his attitude we would not be in the mess we are mate..

8.) 12 Jan 2022 12:20:29
He’s our best player! Ahead of gray Dom and Gordon! Brazil’s number 9! Why would you want him to go because he sulks, cristiano has sulked his whole careers didn’t most games richy gets kicked none stop.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely big dunc, he can sulk all he wants for me mate so long as he is doing the business on the park..

9.) 12 Jan 2022 12:23:23
Could not have put it better myself Ed. ??.

10.) 12 Jan 2022 13:46:22
Brett, that's my line ??

I can see both sides but definitely think he should stay. Marmite player but scores goals and has worked pretty hard on defensive duties.

{Ed025's Note - not marmite for me geoff, one of our best 3 players imo mate..

11.) 12 Jan 2022 14:55:19
Richy "sulking" is pretty much the grown-up version of what I'm usually doing at the same time, whether it's because of a terrible pass to him or a foul refs don't see. right now he is probably too good for us to manage to hold on to based on our position though.

{Ed025's Note - lets hope not bob, he is pivotal to us staying up mate..

12.) 12 Jan 2022 15:01:23
Not very hard that Ed, when you look at some of the duff we have.

I like him but I think he got another few levels he could go up. He can be so much better than he is.

{Ed025's Note - for him to get to higher levels geoff he would need better players around him mate, im just happy to have him as i think hes got a major role if we are to climb to safety mate..

13.) 12 Jan 2022 15:16:22
No way Everton would allow Richarlison to leave in this window.

14.) 12 Jan 2022 17:20:56
If he was solely playing on the wing, I'd say that you're worry about leaving this window is valid. As he plays as a striker for us, I'd say he won't go anywhere this window. He's definitely going to be the big story stay or go in the summer 100%
I love him, never got his detractors. He is so Underrated and I hate that word. His tracking back and defensive work is criminally ignored by fans and pundits alike. He is a complete player. And yes he has 2 or 3 more levels but as Ed says, those will not be accessed until he has much better players on his team. He will earn us a fortune and we will miss him when he's gone. Even the moaning Minnie's will start to call his praises once he's gone.

15.) 12 Jan 2022 17:57:35
He is quite easily the best footballer we have.

16.) 12 Jan 2022 20:02:39
I agree Woburn, I think he is our best player and our most ‘sellable’ asset with DCL just behind him. I do feel however that the lad deserved CL or the very least European football should he graciously ask for it. He is a starter for a decent Brazil team.
I don’t want to lost him but if he (for example) became Mbappe PSG replacement and we got say 80mil for him and the Club bought x2 decent 40mil players I would accept that. For example Diaz we could have easily got at the beginning of this season for 35mil (not now ) . It’s all ifs and butts but I think Rafa wouldn’t be adverse to Richy leaving if he got those types of funds I really do.

17.) 13 Jan 2022 10:45:07
Do you really trust this club to know how to spend big money in the transfer market?



13 Jul 2021 19:16:21
Rumours around that dumfries is nearly done deal. Hope so.


1.) 13 Jul 2021 19:32:13
I’d be amazed if a Champions League team didn’t come in for him. We may have to pay over the odds for him, but he’d be a blinding addition.

{Ed002's Note - Denzel Dumfries (RWB/CB) The defender as his heart set on a move to England or Germany but has made it clear of the interested sides it is Inter who he would prefer. Manchester United and Arsenal have enquired after him previously but it was made clear he did not simply want to provide cover. I am told by someone associated with the player that he would be perfect for the English game and any side that uses a back three and wing backs. Newcastle have an interest if they are forced to look for a RB, and Everton do with Brands at the club. Inter would like to take him as a Hakimi replacement and that seems an achievable solution but they would need to sell to buy having already spent the Hakimi money. Bayern Munich will give him his desired move at the right price but nothing is on the table. Mino may offer him to Chelsea. He was offered to PSG as an alternative to Hakimi.}

2.) 13 Jul 2021 20:53:09
Cheers Ed. Fingers crossed. Sound like we have a chance, albeit a small one.

3.) 14 Jul 2021 11:21:35
Any truth to the rumours he has a very low release clause in his contract?

{Ed002's Note - Don't worry about release clauses.}

4.) 14 Jul 2021 12:24:03
I mean for buying him, not selling on :)
I read that Bayern didn't want to match an €18m release clause and that Inter were eyeing his €15m one, both reports usually questionable but suggests less than 20m?
Not my money but would sound like a bargain.



23 Nov 2019 23:36:15
I've kept quiet over the last few weeks just to give Silva one last chance to show signs of a turnaround. I have been one of those asking for patience and allowing time to turn around but after today's result, I feel we need fresh ideas and new blood on managers hot seat.
I have no idea who we bring in but I am surprised Silva hasn't already gone straight after the whistle.


1.) 24 Nov 2019 08:17:12
Me too Geoff although in true Everton style we always drag our heels.

2.) 24 Nov 2019 12:16:21
Let’s hope we do our business like spurs did. Not sack him then wait for interviews. Let’s be one step ahead and get the replacement in.



21 Sep 2019 18:58:57
believe I've spent the last week defending Silva and the team and they pop up with that performance. Say what ya want. Slag them off to your hearts content. They should be ashamed of that today. Can understand a loss even at home against a team we should beat. What I Can't take is no fight, no passion and no clue. If this continued then Silva will be gone by Christmas.


1.) 21 Sep 2019 19:05:42
He will mate no excuses after a display like that dreadful, Sheffield United totally outplayed us.

2.) 21 Sep 2019 19:08:09
Gone by tomorrow would be nice 🙏🙏.

3.) 21 Sep 2019 19:58:13
I don't believe he will go, YET. The problem we have is who would we replace him with? Can't see many (any) top managers wanting to take this project on at present. What we don't want is another Big Sam type of knee jerk reaction. Silva has to change his approach and strategy otherwise Moshiri will have no option.

4.) 21 Sep 2019 20:10:56
Mourinho is still jobless 🤔🤔.

{Ed002's Note - But not moving to Everton.}

5.) 21 Sep 2019 21:29:41
Jose nailed on for real Madrid.

6.) 21 Sep 2019 21:46:16
Will always support anyone associated with Everton (unless there's an extreme) but never rated Silva. Always seen him as Brown Shoes in disguise. Can not see the board doing anything with him though just yet, considering how badly they wanted him. Weren't we willing to pay Watford 15m at one stage for him (so say rumours and press) . However, at present I can't see where we favour. Undoubtedly we have better players than we have had for years, but what are we better at. Defending? Attacking? Creating chances? I'm not so sure. But he is still in charge of Everton, and while he is, he doesn't need another obstacle against him, ie us!

7.) 21 Sep 2019 22:08:19
Gallardo from River Plate please.

8.) 21 Sep 2019 23:01:17
Wouldn't want Jose anyway. Not sure who's out there. Benitez Maybe? Gallardo? I don't know.

9.) 21 Sep 2019 21:45:14
Any recommendations Ed002 for a manager to replace Silva?

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time Mike.}

10.) 22 Sep 2019 07:28:26
The man doesn't learn! His record speaks for itself. He was poor at Hull and Watford. He likes to play pretty football going forward but doesn't defend. Pretty obvious that zonal marking doesn't work. Players have no fight in them. There not arsed as long as they get their dough. Why isn't Davies being played. i'd have him anyday ahead of Sneiderlan ( who never passes the ball forward )
The man is clueless. His answer to a crisis is put on more forwards and take off the midfield!
Lukaku was never replaced. well he was by Tosun who isn't good enough. We are short of a centre half and we need a creative midfielder. Board should have gone for Rogers or Benitez in my opinion. Very sad state of affairs at the moment.

11.) 22 Sep 2019 12:29:09
So after 6 games silly season arrived early this year . I'll be back in 5 mins, just going to Google the names of a few obscure managers to let people think I have a vast knowledge of the world game . Back soon 🧐.

12.) 22 Sep 2019 13:28:05
It didn't take long for the "David Moyes back" speculation to start.

13.) 22 Sep 2019 17:35:58
Quite a few of us have defended the team and the manager, few games in the season now, so with the fixture run we had it is fair to say we should have turned in some better performances than that.

If you go a goal down we seem to throw on attacking players and leave the rest of the team lobsided, panic sets in.

That performance yesterday was shear panic by the manager, and a team with no fight in them.

We saw it with the past managers here, different managers, same mentality by the players.

People have said we have not replaced Lukaku, to be honest we have never replaced David Moyes, not for one minute am I saying Moyes back, what I am saying is we have not found a manager who can give the same fight Moyes teams gave.

Replacing Silva who to be fair has no plan b is going to be a merry go round, manager in, manager out.

Somewhere within Finch Farm, there is something wrong and needs to be fixed.

We cannot have anymore games like last Saturday, so The cup game in midweek is massive, one we cannot afford to lose.

14.) 22 Sep 2019 22:08:20
Bluemike so what's the problem with Moyes. Utd sacked him, even though his stats were third to Fergies. Consistently had us top 7 and that with zilch dinero. Him or Benitez would be a fit.

{Ed025's Note - come on BCT...moyes really????, do you not remember the dour stuff we used to play under him...or taking a knife to a gunfight?, the guy was a nightmare mate and i think i would rather have allardyce back before him, he had zilch dinero because he could not be trusted and was happy to wallow in mediocrity..

15.) 23 Sep 2019 11:34:10
Hasn't been much of a success since he left us either Bill. Has to be better candidates out there, but it's not our job to identify them. Unfortunately, whoever the silent advisor to Moshiri is, doesn't seem to have much of a clue either.



18 Jan 2019 11:50:29
Well. Niasse deal to Cardiff finally done. Loan with option for permanent deal. Hopefully opens space to bring striker in.


1.) 18 Jan 2019 13:37:26
One out, hopefully, maybe one in.
Ps good luck Oumar and thank you
Big C.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 14:05:19
Agreed big c. Tried hard and handled himself with dignity but always looked like a giraffe on an ice rink. Hopefully a striker in to score some goals and push us upwards.
We just seem to be an emasculated male model atm. We look good just no penetration.

3.) 18 Jan 2019 14:05:46
Good hard working player should do well at Cardiff just didn't work out for us.

4.) 18 Jan 2019 20:46:20
Big thank you indeed. Looked like a Giraffe on an icerink indeed, not good enough for the Prem is another shout. Treated like something off the bottom of Koemans shoe and yet did indeed carry himself with dignity. I wonder then exactly what we think we are looking for. This is the same Niasse that given his stop start, stop start, appearances, still managed to score goals for us and may I dare to say a couple of quite important ones. Ask ourselves this, currently Richarlison - an undoubted talented footballer - is undergoing the same winter malaise he had at Watford (as is his then and now Manager funny enough) , yet this lad is indispensable. Have/ did we ever see Niasse given a run of games, I cannot think of a run can anyone. Any way good luck to the lad. As a final, his wages gone do not cover anywhere near enough, if the rumour about the Chelsea lad is to be believed.

5.) 18 Jan 2019 23:31:46
We aren’t going to pay what Chelsea want for Batshuayi. There’s no guarantee that he’s any better than Tosun. We have goal scorers at the club, we just don’t have anyone with the guts to give them a run in the team.

Scathing Daily Mail article. Would you say we are run worse than under Peter Johnson?


1.) 17 Jan 2022 18:55:25
Wouldn't read that rag if you paid me. We all know how badly the club has been and is being run. Doesn't take an article in the Daily Fail to tell us.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 19:52:11
We do reg. Was just the first of many I read on the same topic.



16 Jan 2022 17:48:03
It's looking likely to be Duncan and baines til end of season.

Then it's anyone's guess. We can all throw 100 names out and probpy be wrong with all of them

What we do need is a manager who tells the owner that he is in charge, with or without a DOF and they will decide who to buy, sell, etc and what tactics and players to play.

They need to not be afraid to walk away of this doesn't happen, regardless of the contract they have.


1.) 16 Jan 2022 19:29:26
Bloody hell, you just described Benitez.

2.) 16 Jan 2022 21:43:26
The owner still bought players apparently.



16 Jan 2022 15:06:12
Well, certainly looks like it'll be big dunc vs stevie in the dugout Saturday. Should be fun.




15 Jan 2022 17:58:57
Teams get lucky finding the right fit of manager and club. wenger, sir Alex, kendall, klopp, etc.

We need to get lucky with our next appointment when (not if) rafa goes.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 18:08:39
Kendall and Fergie were both minutes from the door before a turn around and the fans were baying for blood. Don't reinvent history, we are already dealing with enough and don't need delusions to add to the mess.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 18:18:47
Read my posts. I've been advocating patience and giving managers time so don't pop at me.

I'm just saying sometimes a manager and a club fit at the right time. Even klopp was under pressure at times.

The problem we have is football has moved so far since the days of kendall, sir Alex etc and look at Watford.100 managers in about 2 years.

Fans and boards demand instant success and are not prepared to build a club over a number if season, like we did with moyes. People forget he finished 17th in 2nd season with some awful results.

I want to give rafa time and he would probably get longer if he was younger and hadn't managed them lot.

If he was 40 and came from Barnsley say, we would not be this nasty even with the same set of results.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 18:26:55
He came in and promised solidity and results. 1 in 13? Relegation form. Any manager, of any age, in any circumstances couldn’t survive the chop.

{Ed0666's Note - Ranieri?

4.) 15 Jan 2022 18:27:32
No I'm not going to read your posts. My reply was fine for the moment.

5.) 15 Jan 2022 18:28:38
But he is not 40, does not come from Barnsley, and I want rid of him ASAP. Never wanted him in the 1st place. I had more faith in RB and MS who should have had time.

6.) 15 Jan 2022 18:37:08
I meant that any manager, old or young, that had the same record as Benitez, having joined in the summer, would be out. Wasn’t talking about other clubs.

7.) 15 Jan 2022 18:42:59
JB understand that but we have had injuries and suspensions to key players with a small squad, C.V. and this squad needs a massive overhaul, as we all knew in August.

8.) 15 Jan 2022 18:49:32
I accept that Geoff, my opinion is that we should still be better off than we are. Chops and changes the formation every few weeks, we can’t defend in any situations, and it would appear he’s lost the players. Needs to change mate, before it’s too late.

9.) 15 Jan 2022 18:51:27
Nick, that's great in hindsight but at the time I bet you were also one of the fans baying for blood.

We should have kept Bobby and brought in a defending coach but we can't live on ifs, buts and maybes.

10.) 15 Jan 2022 19:03:18
Ed0666 17 points from first 8 games. 2 points from next 11 games. Same players, Brands gone, medical staff gone, one of the best WB's in the Country gone. List to a Team that could not buy a win. Rafa's response today 'we made mistakes', last game 'we made mistakes'. Sam had better results with worse players arguably.

{Ed0666's Note - mate he’s gonna be sacked within a few days I would worry about his successor now

11.) 15 Jan 2022 19:36:27
Ed0666 my immediate concern is seeing Everton remain in the top flight. Supported this lot since 61, never known different. This just isn't the Benitez I thought we were getting.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m sure Rafa is thinking the same way about everyon mate.



15 Jan 2022 17:31:25
Tough watch that. Can't even be bothered trying to defend him. Looks like another newspaper on the way.

Gordon and gray the only ones to come out with any real credit.

Pickford - did ok, nothing good or bad.
Coleman - legs gone, why did Patterson not play
Keane - awful
Godfrey - decent player, can't hold defence up all by himself.
Mickey - learning the prem, iffy today

Gomez - steady
Doucoure - number 8 not a 6, both these 2 need another in cm.

Gordon - best player
Gray - decent game - these 2 only ones showing anything

Dcl - not match fit

Richy - need him fit asap- great goal
Mina - improves defence so much but he still wants out

Need richy and mina from start.

Watch digne have a blinder now.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 17:41:06
New manager not newspaper. stupid phone.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 17:41:36
Keane is awful week after week. I've lost count how many goals he has cost us.
Coleman is finished, under selling on his passes hence their second goal.
Rondon shouldn't play either!
To be honest, I don't care anymore, I've lost my love for Football and Everton.

Maybe in his private life DFS but he has certainly got an excellent football brain to do what he has done in the game.

Bit harsh that, Ed, on rooney. He obviously has a very good football brain, if not a common sense one.

He'll do well in the management game, maybe not for us but only time will tell.

STB, we may take a hit with rafa compo but it won't be as big a hit as if we went down, not that i think it would have happened.

Just like the last 6 times in 6 years, we need to get behind the new manager and support our club. but. the club need to make the right appointment, which they haven't since moyes came.

The martinez train is gathering an awful lot of steam. Need a very good defensive coach along side him.

The Danish coach is highly regarded but very little chance until after World Cup.

Before we appoint anyone, they should agree a 1 year rolling deal. This would save us on compo.

OK, they could walk away but we got to take that risk.

Fair point reg, problem is we have no money to buy defenders if Bobby comes back.
