Rumour has it Gordon staying one more year then wants to go.

Probably be sold in June like richu was this year to sort out ffp issues.


1.) 01 Sep 2022 07:57:11
How long is his contract?

2.) 01 Sep 2022 08:32:40
Until 2025. New contract on the table but he’s apparently refused to sign.

3.) 01 Sep 2022 09:03:07
Well this is a rumour site.

4.) 01 Sep 2022 10:52:07
It all depends on how much progress we have made by the end of this season surely? Making good progress I believe he will stay.



23 Jan 2022 19:03:31
Rumours pereira has moved into strong position for managers role.

Don't know much about him but he won trophies pretty much everywhere he's been.


1.) 23 Jan 2022 19:33:30
Would prefer him to Lamps or Wayne myself!

2.) 23 Jan 2022 19:40:40
Me to. The only reason being he has been around the block, albeit in micky mouse leagues. Lampard could work, he brought the young us through at Chelsea.

3.) 23 Jan 2022 19:51:06
They say he has won 9 trophies and brought on a host of players. Worth a punt.

4.) 23 Jan 2022 20:43:08
Still marsch, pereira, dunc, lampard, rooney for me in that order

Marsch looks like he's replacing kovac at monaco though.

5.) 23 Jan 2022 21:18:23
Lo and behold guess who Vitor Pereira's agent is?



12 Jan 2022 06:57:51
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.

26 Aug 2023 17:28:03
One final post from me on here because I know what's coming.

There'll be so many dyche out shouts and we cannot keep sacking managers. It's not their fault they've been given rubbish to deal with.

Dyche should be given time to rebuild. Not saying he doesn't make mistakes, we all do but he'll learn once he can get his own players in.

Branthwaite, chermiti and dobbin all done well today. Garner, Patterson, onana are still young and learning.

We have the makings of a decent team, we just need squad depth and a goddammit striker or 2.

Anyway have fun. I may pop in from time to time but need a break from all the doom and gloom. It is only a game after all.


{Ed025's Note - you will be missed geoff, come back soon mate..

1.) 26 Aug 2023 17:43:12
We have a lot of players to come back from injury, a few signings and I think and hope we will be okay.

2.) 26 Aug 2023 18:07:34
I get where you are coming from Geoff. I’ve thought the same many times. I’ve not quite given up yet but might after Sheffield Utd.



13 Jun 2023 11:39:24
In regards to bill, he stabilised the club when we needed it most, brought moyes in and helped to build a squad to be proud of. Top 8 nearly every year.

The problem was he should have gone when moshiri came in. Him staying has caused more. negatives than the positives he gave before moshiri. Ruined his legacy.

We need linear thinking from owner, through dof to manager and youth set up.

Let's start looking at Palace, Brighton models of bringing talented youngsters in and through and develop them.

Sell if needed to balance books and keep producing.


1.) 13 Jun 2023 20:13:15
Well we have three members of the board removed which is good, let's hope they are replaced by people who know how to run a successful club. However I am not sure what impact them leaving will have short term since the mess we are in from a football angle is due to the one board member who remains and the owner himself.

2.) 13 Jun 2023 20:17:11
I just want all the players, on and off the pitch, responsible for the last 7 years of turmoil, out of the club mate.

Some naturally stay longer than others but until we purge this club of the people who have consistently shown us that they are not fit for purpose, then I can't be particularly optimistic or excited about our future.

We are still very much in the mire, as Myer's explained so well recently. It is going to be a slog for a couple of years yet and that is even if many things were to go right.

We are in a better position and in better hands than we were in at the start of the season but we still need people to go and many players to be moved on, working some new blood into this squad.

If we get characters, competitors, grafters, tenacious little persons in, instead of being drawn in by silly names like the past, then we have a good chance of staying up.

3.) 14 Jun 2023 06:57:47
Excellent post.

4.) 14 Jun 2023 11:53:18
Yes, JMW, but only if Thelwell and Dyche are allowed to recruit. If Kenwright and Moshiri get involved it will be more of the same. I keep on asking myself "what if anything did the three ex-board members contribute to our recruitment of players"? Unless the football experts are left to pick and choose who plays then nothing will change in the short term. We are all banking on some sort of take-over but that will not do much to help in this transfer window.

5.) 14 Jun 2023 13:26:49
What was it Brands said when confronted by a supporter?

6.) 14 Jun 2023 16:58:41
BB, brands has dirty hands in all of this too. He wasted copious amounts of cash on dross that aren't fit to play premier league football. He can point the finger all he likes but he should also hold his hands up and admit to his own shortcomings before blaming everyone else. All of them need to go now if this club wants to bounce back. The longer they stay, the longer it takes us to drag ourselves out of this more.



28 May 2023 23:12:02
Who would have thought when seamus fluked/ meant that, shot against Leeds it would probably be the goal the kept us up?

Such small margins but we cannot. and must. not be in this situation again.


1.) 29 May 2023 00:12:32
Mate i still can't believe it am i dreaming totally agree with post geoff mate we can't afford it again next season still in shock ?.

2.) 29 May 2023 08:57:14
Small margins indeed, before we scored I was thinking about that game against wolves when the fans urged the team to get forward and then we conceded, would have been safe with a draw then.



28 May 2023 22:04:07
Keep dyche and rebuild. Continue with 1 point per game with a few draws thrown in amd We'll be absolutely fine.

Gonna. need a huge rebuild of squad and how much we can force through in 1 window remains to be seen, especially with ffp looming over us but we need attacking reinforcements as we've said for 2 years plus.

That's all for another day. Today we enjoy survival, not celebrate because its nothing to be happy for but enjoy and have a rest before the transfer fun begins.




22 May 2023 22:13:48
How's the nerves, blues? At least we know it's in our own hands.

Gonna be a total nightmare of an afternoon. Watching the match and looking at other scores is going to kill me.

Just win the game lads and then we can relax for a few months.


1.) 22 May 2023 22:21:13
Forget the other results, just beat Bournemouth.

2.) 22 May 2023 22:38:54
What an end to a season. Three teams competing for one place. Never again please Everton ?. My nerves won't take anymore. Retirement, relocating, relegation, three Rs I never thought possible in 2023.

3.) 22 May 2023 22:42:02
Are you confident, swinners? How do we do it? Go out and try get it done early or sit back and try for a 1 nil.

All depends on who is fit and how we set up.

With current injury issues I would be going 532





If anyone gets fit in next few days it may change.

4.) 22 May 2023 23:02:39
He will play Maupay.

5.) 23 May 2023 06:57:24
Well beat Bournemouth and that's it, but it would have been nice if Leicester had lost to at least have the safety net of a draw being just enough. I just don't trust us, maybe just the pint half empty view, but I do feel we'll draw Sunday. Just hope none of the others win ?.

6.) 23 May 2023 07:01:45
I agree Geoff we have to score early and avoid the nerves. I think it’ll be that XI only Doucouré instead of Simms.

7.) 23 May 2023 07:51:50
Totally agree TomTom. Leicester's draw put a whole different feeling on our game v Bournemouth. Can see Leeds or Leicester winning so massive pressure on now, not confident at all but we would have taken this few months ago so let's just hope the boys can deliver and Bournemouth ain't at it.

8.) 23 May 2023 08:20:14
I’m not very confident in what we have to get us over the line Geoff.

Cheshire, that's despite everyone saying before the game it was our best team and formation.

Basically, the okayers are awful, the board needs to go and unfortunately, the job is too big for Frank.

I'm all for giving managers time. as I have bleated on here for years but results haven't been great.

I'd love to think we'd make forward signings this window and results will come but can't see how we can afford it.

I worry that Frank is trying to implement a passing possession game without the players being able to play it.

We should be playing high tempo direct counter football, passing to wingers quickly for them to run at missing full backs.

It's not our choice to make but a few more bad results and the fans will force the board to act.

Martinez was great attacking but smas said needs defensive help.

That being said I still believe Frank should be given the next 2 windows before we start judging.

Takes more than 16 games amd 1 window to rebuild the mess we're in.
