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.



20 May 2018 10:00:54
In eds review of the day for yesterday, says Lucien Favre has left nice. I know we were linked with him before koeman came. Maybe he is on our shortlist?


{Ed025's Note - who knows geoff?, i still think it will be silva but its not set in stone mate..

1.) 20 May 2018 10:06:40
I agree ed. Looks like Silva but few managers who have just left clubs include Favre and the Leipzig boss and fonseca name is not going away.
We may be surprised by who the new manager will be. Just got to wait and see.

{Ed025's Note - let the fun begin mate..

2.) 20 May 2018 17:23:22
I think Favre is off to Dortmund.

3.) 20 May 2018 18:33:27
Didn't think about that, st. So see 8f batshauyi is available or if he is off to dortmund too.

4.) 20 May 2018 22:43:23
That made no sense. Should read. Wonder if batshauyi is available or off to Dortmund.



31 Jan 2018 19:35:40
Bit of a strange one. Lookman gone to Leipzig on loan.




30 Jan 2018 16:19:37
Eds, given that mesa has joined sevilla, would we have more hope of nzonzi joining us this window?


{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 30 Jan 2018 16:46:50
Good player. Another midfielder but looks like besic is off to Boro and klassen out on loan, plus nzonzi got more quality going forward.



18 Jan 2018 13:39:08
Looks like naismith is off to hearts. Good luck to him. Was a decent player for us. Busy, annoying, always remembered for his hat trick against Chelsea.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 16:42:11
Top bloke as well really down to earth wish him luck!

mina got 10k fine for appearing in a betting advert in Columbia. We'll take that. Not a ban. Just don't know difference between that and the whole of everton team going out to play ( and other teams) with betting companies splashed on their match day shirts.


1.) 13 Sep 2019 22:49:04
Agree it is crazy, I wish we had a different sponsor.



02 Sep 2019 07:41:32
Just been flicking through all transfers after being away. Didn't know mo besic went to Sheffield Utd on loan or Callum Connolly went to Lincoln also on loan.
Wish them both luck and hopefully mo finds a club. He wasn't a bad player, red card waiting to happen but just hasn't worked out at our club.




26 Aug 2019 23:07:59
Must admit I am getting so fed up with some posters on here always criticising the manager. You know who you are. What do you expect? You think we should win every game 5-0 and win the league and all cups every year. Shocking you are.
It is a competition and for years we have been way off the top. Rome wasn't built in a day and I'm not saying Silva is the messiah but we have shown progress from fat Sam style of boring football.


1.) 27 Aug 2019 00:23:54
Well said Geoff.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 06:48:18
I also said that we should support the whole club as we do not choose the manager or buy the players. I'm all for differing opinion but give the team a break. Last season started well and ended well but was awful in the middle. We will come good again. Only played 3 games and in prem league no game is easy. So if you are not happy with our club or you just want to keep moaning over every little thing then jog on and support someone else.

3.) 27 Aug 2019 07:27:01
Geoff i totally agree but some fans have the right to a say and games like the last one is so hard to take knowing we are the better team we haven't had a striker since lukaku left in 2017. Tosun terrible niasse terrible dcl terrible you. Can see y fans moan a proven striker should of been the number 1 target in the last 4 markets an still we are stuck with dcl who can finish an has not proven himself and a kid from italy who we all hope can do
It but only time will tell i like the manger i think he is the ryt man for the job just final third we are shocking.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 07:43:42
How do we know Tosun is terrible! Watched the bloke in Champions League and for his Country, most of his goals from in the area and scored against very good sides. My view if he (Tosun) is given the same game time as DCL, we would see the goals come.

5.) 27 Aug 2019 08:01:08
Get the feeling tosun doesn't fit with Silva style. Maybe a poacher and good in the air but he likes pace up top. Dcl is great at holding ball up and fighting for possession, just cannot finish the job. Everyone got everything crossed for kean to be saviour. Worry for us if he not. We need goals across the team. Richy and siggy seem off the boil and Gomes struggled against villa. International break soon so hopefully we can gel with those that don't go away.
I just think we need to get behind the team rather than turning goodison into the toxic place it has been over recent seasons.

6.) 27 Aug 2019 08:01:51
You are right Evocallum - people do have a right to voice their opinions but to me it's frustrating that we have 'fans' who only come on to criticise the team.

When we murdered Arsenal 1-0 (and I say murdered because we totally outplayed them, when we beat Chelsea 2-0 and Man U 4-0, our form in the last 8 games of the season they disappear and don't say a word of praise. I think they have a panic attack and don't know what they are going to do with themselves the next week.

Then, as soon as there is any dip in form, there they are - the I told you so brigade.

The really, really frustrating thing is these people think they are great Everton fans, steeped in the history of our great club but their only solution they ever offer is Silva is not good enough.

There is still a lot to do at the club but it needs patience and understanding but I don't see any from these 'supporters'

This is a discussion forum/ site but how can you debate/ discuss anything when all they say is "I am right, I am right and I know I am right"

Rant over.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff that bw..

7.) 27 Aug 2019 09:21:02
BW i agree there is a lot to do an silva an brands are the way forward for this club patience is key but do you think he should give tosun more game time. As a striker my self amateur an semi pro leagues if ya don't score goals your replaced i don't rate tosun but i think he deserves a run of games if kean is not ready silva has to change it up top as he said after the game the lack of goals is concerning.

8.) 27 Aug 2019 09:34:51
Come on here and other Everton forums to criticise tactics, team and coaching staff when I/ wish, because I refuse to boo, shout abuse or moan at the game/ in the ground. Dirty washing and all that. I also refuse to personalise by calling others that comment, bloody idiots or fools etc! Hope that helps.

{Ed025's Note - thats fair comment DFS..

9.) 27 Aug 2019 09:36:26
BW take a bow son. 👌👍.

10.) 27 Aug 2019 10:05:11
If you put yourself in that category of idiots and fools DFS then fine, i do too. I'm not insulting you it's my opinion of your opinions if you believe that wanting our team and manager to fail is your opportunity to come onto forums and give biased and hyper unrealistic views.

However, I love other opinions when it's taken on an outlook of reality and the views are balanced and given in clear context.

Most of yours and others on here are simply given to berate with a thinly veiled mask of what you are truly saying. You don't want Marco and when we lose it's all his fault.

I don't put a mask on it and will say it how it is. If I think you're an idiot based on what you're saying I'll tell you.

You probably think I'm an obnoxious ick (put whatever letter confront that you think fits) . That's you're opinion and believe it or not I do respect it.

But we know you, Swan and DC don't like Silva. We know you think every loss is his fault. For 14 months you've told us all. But if you want your opinion to be more received then make it more constructive than destructive.

Why have you never said anything good about the manager? Why can't you highlight the occasional time he's done something right?

I don't need to answer them questions for you. You do. Me I can criticise and praise and people won't know if I like him or not. You and some others already and from the start nailed your colours to the mast before a ball was kicked.

11.) 27 Aug 2019 10:10:58

I think my response to you has got caught in a backlog or missed

Basically I think Silva is trying to emulate the attacking front three of say a Man City or a Liverpool for example where all 3 can play across the line and interchange constantly to try and pull defenders out of position

Tosun doesn't really fit this model as he is a more traditional centre forward who wants to stay in the box all the time but by doing that the attack can lose flexibility and it also constrains the 2 'wide' men as it is more difficult for them to interchange all the time.

Last season DCL wasn't scoring but the team was playing well and others were scoring in his absence so Tosun wasn't needed. This season I think we have brought in Kean to provide an additional scoring input plus he has the option of moving Richarlison to the middle. I think he has been trying to motivate DCL at the start of the season rather than destroy his confidence but the lack of goals from the rest of the team might soon force his hand

Tosun is a good player but not really suited for the style of play Silva wants. I could see him doing well at a Brighton (replacing Glen Armstrong) or a Fulham but only see him as an impact player with us.

12.) 27 Aug 2019 17:28:05
Personally I think Tosun is like Lineker but without the goals.

I also think you get out of this forum what you put in.
If you only put in hatred and destructive comments then you can't argue if you only get the same back.

Keane was at fault for the 1st goal against Villa but all the doom and gloom comments are against Silva.

Well, we win as a team and lose as a team and both Keane and Silva are part of that team and if anyone attacks any of my team then I will defend them.

13.) 27 Aug 2019 18:27:12
Tosun fitted Sam's type of team for me. I think with more intricate play we need an aguero type player. I really like him and he gives his all on the pitch. He wants to succeed but sometimes you don't fit the plan.

Kean looks like he's got skill, quick feet and a willingness to make opportunities for himself. However, he's very young and needs a lot of time to develop.

14.) 27 Aug 2019 19:13:01
That a just it though BlueJohn, I don't think Tosun couldve copes with big Sam's game. The ball over the top or constantly pumped up to him, he's not the best at hold up play or quick enough for a ball over the top.
DCL has the hold up play and pace for a Sam team but would need to score too.

15.) 27 Aug 2019 19:44:11
DFS, I don't call people names, if I can help it, on here but I won't shy away from saying if someone posts something ridiculous, don't see a problem with that.
I'm not having a go at you here, I'm seriously just curious. You say you refuse to boo etc at the game yet you will come on here and slate players/ manager etc. Is that not a bit two faced? What's the difference in not doing it in person but doing it behind the anonymity of a keyboard? As I said, I'm not having a pop at you here I'd just like to know the reasoning behind that.

16.) 27 Aug 2019 20:50:22
I agree Smit. I think they brought him over to fit with Sam but getting someone from that type of league very rarely works. He's quite slow for EPL standards and doesn't push the channels.

17.) 27 Aug 2019 22:28:51
I think you have inadvertently answered your question when you said most of his goals from in the area.

Silva is trying to do the same as Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham etc in having a flexible, interchangeable forward line where the forwards move from winger to centre forward to winger to drag the defence out of position.

This approach is harder to implement when the centre forward wants to stay in the area all the time and it also has an affect on the ability of the wingers to swap.

Tosun, whilst a good finisher, struggles as one of an interchangeable front 3. I think that is the reason he is not getting as much game time as DCL as including Tosun reduces the overall effectiveness of the side (you might argue that point but that is how I would see it also) . I think Silva sees Kean as the answer to DCL's goal draft with Richarlison in the middle as an alternative.



18 Aug 2019 18:19:12
Watched game from my Turkish hotel room. Couldn't understand a word but all inclusive beer helped. Thought we started well but was a tough game.
Great save with his face from pickford.
Defence really solid even with losing digne, who again has started as our best player.
Jp looks an absolute beast. Like gana but with ability to go forward. Gomes again looks like he got weeks of time on the ball. Glad Bernard got his goal, he is a great little player. Richy had poor game imo, maybe tired after playing for Brazil but we got iwobi to come in for him.
Dcl would be world class footballer, if he could finish like shearer. Hopefully he can learn quickly.

Walcott actually looked good when he came on. Holgate struggled a bit but he only a bit part player. Hopefully Baines is fit to replace digne next week.
Kean is going to be unbelievable player. So strong on the ball, took 4 to get it off him and then by fouling him. Touch more composure and he would have opened his account with us. Think he may start against villa.

In conclusion we did some great business over the summer and look good to push on towards top 6 especially with Chelsea struggling. We need to get behind Silva and brands who have done wonders over past year or so and give the team all the support we can. We will still have setbacks but we are on the way up. Back home for villa game, ready to cheer the blues on with English beer.


1.) 18 Aug 2019 18:28:43
Good post Geoff. A win against Villa would give us a very decent start.

I think Kean and JP will end up being crowd favourites.

Chelsea haven't clicked yet and looked disjointed against Leicester. They could struggle certainly until they get a settled 11.

Let's hope we can keep some consistency this season and push on.

2.) 18 Aug 2019 19:37:18
Nice one smit. We need to hope to continue our defensive robustness that we have found. One other thing. I am interested in seeing our new right back play to give Seamus some competition. He doesn't seem his usual marauding self so far this season.

3.) 18 Aug 2019 19:50:10
I thought Chelsea were average at best today. They are going to struggle based on that performance, especially without the ability to reinforce due to transfer ban.

As for us, we’re not at last seasons levels yet but I’m positive we will be and maybe more once the new signings settle. Mina looks good, so staying injury free will be key for him and Keane.

Gbamin needs to understand the Premier League more, but that might not take too much time. And I can’t wait to see Kean start and show us what he can do in 70-90 mins.

All in all, lots to do still but the possibility of breaking the top six might improve if Chelsea don’t.

4.) 18 Aug 2019 20:07:54
Yes Toffee Ace and Leicester look like they're missing something. Vardy looks like he's lost a bit of pace, unless he's just not upto speed yet.

5.) 18 Aug 2019 22:12:59
Good post mate

Against Villa I want to see us finish them off. Have to take our chances.

6.) 19 Aug 2019 07:26:09
That could be the game we see Kean start. Away from home, draw in the opposition and hit them with his electric pace on the counter.



10 Aug 2019 06:18:35
Well folks. 8am in Turkey. 31 degrees. Bar open and premier league is back. Happy days. Come on blues. Nice 3 points today. 3-1 to us kean gets 2 and siggy pen.

Bolasie would have been alright if it wasn't for that nasty injury. Never the same player after that. Still got to few more to get rid of and tighten the squad up a bit. We got good young kids that we can use if need be. Integrate them slowly and build their experience and confidence.

Moshiri, ed? We knew he fancied Costa up front. Made up with kean. Young hungry and if successful will have a sell on value.

Must admit tho ed. Bit naive on this one. For years people have leaked stories to the press to manipulate situations to their benefit, clubs and players and agents all do it. Maybe not obviously but definitely behind scenes.

8 mil is a decent price. I just don't think he is a good player. Never seen him have good game for city. Maybe a few at villa but rather keep Jimmy mac than have delph. Just my opinion.

Do agree in some respects. Tosun knows where the goal is but does he have the pace to play in this league or the way we 'usually play. Today was gash.

Thought iwobi may go there. Played for gunners there a bit.

Thought sidibe did Ok, needs games just like kean. Thought delph did well. Richy looked lost most of game, maybe tiredness. Gylfi went missing until the pen. Iwobi looks class. No game time at gunners but will be a find for us I feel. Tosun not bad plan b. Good attitude, just wish he was faster.
Digne is just a . The trick to beat the defender for richy goal was quality as was his free kick. Hopefully a win against wolves and we can head into international break on a real high.
