Question in the current environment would you be happy if the club signs CA's older targets on season long loans with Brands buying younger players for the future. Then after the unwanted players contracts expire at the end of season expire the club reassess the transfer policy.


1.) 26 Aug 2020 10:09:26
I would take that all day long, after the last few years we need a proper plan in place and it's a killer but we need to be patient.
Carlo has always said that he will sign Good players and that they might not always be young but they will be Good.

2.) 26 Aug 2020 13:22:46
I'm happy, personally I'm sick of "building for the future" or buying unknowns or youngens with potential, as let's face it, this has been the plan for years and years and it hasn't exactly materialised has it.

I woukd like us to get some proven quality players in and actually enjoy going the game and watching us play some decent football,
I can't take another season like last year.

One for the Ed's. Do you know if we are in any talks that may lead to bringing in a new left back. Silva has been playing Robinson quite a bit in pre-season so I have a feeling that he is being assessed to see if he is good enough to play as a back up LB.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot tell you about any talks just now but I understand that interest of Everton and others remains for Marvin Plattenhardt. I have mentioned others that may also be options.}

1.) 22 Jul 2018 14:58:25
Arent we in for Digne?

{Ed002's Note - Sure maybe, but Digne is very much a defensive left back rather than a wing back - and perhaps not really what Everton need.}

2.) 22 Jul 2018 15:35:25
Would be mice to have some defenders who can defend.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 15:32:33
Thanks ed. I thought playing a front 3 with only 2 CBs would lessen the need for a more attacking playerlike Plattenhardt. But i'm not that familiar with Digne to be honest and agree that we still need an outlet from our full backs. With a front 3, when the wider players tuck in you do need an outlet. Silva does like an attacking and expansive style aswell which points to a more forward thinking full back. Not disagreeing with you in any way ed just exploring my opinion, admittedly based on a lack of knowledge :) Has there been a player profile on Digne please ed?

4.) 22 Jul 2018 20:58:54
Thanks ed appreciate the info.

5.) 22 Jul 2018 22:48:26
Yeah I agree Ed he’s not he most confident person going forward from what I’ve seen. Looks panicked on the ball which is strange for a Barcelona player but if silva and brands want him let’s get behind him.



16 Jun 2016 16:46:47
If anyone fancies a laugh take a look at the emerging whispers on sly if we get half the players we are being rumored with we would have the best squad in the PL if not Europe. As you said though Ed its nice to be in the situation for a change.


1.) 16 Jun 2016 17:06:14
ano that today whisper had Lucas moura on it.



26 May 2016 13:35:59
Hypothetical one here if Zlatan goes to MU do you think Rooney would be surplus to requirements would we be his first port of call.


{Ed025's Note - i would doubt it sa, he will play one more season at utd then end his career in the MLS i suspect mate..

1.) 26 May 2016 18:30:48
Rooney definitely playing at Utd next season. May leave come Jan but he'll start August at Utd.



26 May 2016 13:22:45
Hypothetical one here if Zlatan goes to MU do you think Rooney would be surplus to requirements would we be his first port of call.


{Ed025's Note - it would come down to money i think sa and that would make it a non starter, my feeling is that he will play one more season with utd then end his career in the MLS mate..

1.) 26 May 2016 16:05:56
If we are looking to offer £200 million wages to Hart, ok paper talk, but I would not rule Everton out of signing Rooney as his wages could be met, call me a romantic but I have a gut feeling, Rooney will be coming back to Everton.

The club is in a difficult situation if they let everyone know their targets then prices will rise and pundits will give their opinions prior to signing which may have a detrimental affects on the transfer. Alternatively but not letting everyone know their transfer targets then the media can com up with speculation that frustrates supporters as they don't necessarily support the idea of signing particular players. Until we sign a player every thing is speculation so why get worried about it, it probably won't happen anyway. If you look at our latest signings within the club they are all quality players or players with potential. I trust the club not the media.


1.) 19 Jul 2021 14:45:06
All Premier League teams are in that position- often a player just goes to the highest bidder, or for the highest wages. And why not - it’s a job after all.
In terms of managing the squad - the club may well be quite far down the line of getting players out which means we can develop the squad. Securing squad players, on lower wages, could enable us to make 2/ 3 marque signings. Not every player needs to be a guaranteed starter - we need players who can do a job in the cups, cover injuries/ suspensions etc. Let’s judge the signings once deadline day comes.

{Ed025's Note - i will have the squad player shout JB, but there are a lot of nay sayers out there looking for a stick to beat rafa with and andros fits the bill perfectly for them mate, in my view we needed a bit of a decent signing to appease the doubters and it would have gone a long way to smoothing the transition of the new manager coming in..

2.) 19 Jul 2021 16:01:56
Don’t disagree, Ed, mate. Hopefully that big name signing that we can get excited about is just round the corner.

{Ed025's Note - hopefully JB but the only names at the moment are Gray and Townsend mate, lets hope things change..

Interesting interview on youtube Toffee TV with Guillem Balagué about Benitez. There is an obvious bias as Guillem knows Benitez personally but it does give you an insight into the Benitez and what he is about.


1.) 02 Jul 2021 16:49:43
Alternatively Rory who is a Chelsea fan/ Youtuber offers a slightly less favourable opinion on him in his video with Ped and Baz lol.

2.) 03 Jul 2021 10:58:22
Just watched it and the video he mentions when Benítez was Chelsea manager against Brentford. blimey, I had no idea how Chelsea fans felt about him.



28 Jun 2021 13:08:48
Saw this and thought yep this sums up football rumour journalism for me.


"Dumfries is an athlete".


1.) 28 Jun 2021 16:45:40
4 words. Sums up Lineker.

2.) 28 Jun 2021 17:58:35
I met him last week in the lake district. An absolute gent.



04 Sep 2020 10:43:19
Hope the delay in the signings is due to the Club wanting to announce all 3 at the same time. On another note we are now being linked with Lemar pretty sure this will happen as you just can't have enough left wingers in your squad.


1.) 04 Sep 2020 10:59:38
Thought Lemar was RW, could be wrong.

{Ed002's Note - LW or AM.}

2.) 04 Sep 2020 11:34:37
Well that would be a colossal waste of money then. Unless Iwobi is going the other way, we can dream.

3.) 04 Sep 2020 12:41:47
Just swap Iwobi for Messi.

4.) 04 Sep 2020 12:58:23
Yeah but then Barcelona would have to pay us the difference.



07 Aug 2020 12:09:54
New away kit is class.


1.) 07 Aug 2020 12:47:00
Lots of them will be bought looks great.

Is this the James that last season played probably the best football we have seen at Everton for a considerable time? Or the agent and media portrayed James that doesn't want to be here is unprofessional and doesn't put any effort in? I've seen the first but only heard of the second.

Sorry Ed I disagree they have a right to hold a grudge if they want, it doesn't make them any less of a fan. We all have our opinions that's what makes us unique. I personally don't have a problem with Rafa but I can understand why others do.


{Ed025's Note - holding grudges does not get you very far in life sa, the guy said a stupid thing a long time ago in the heat of the moment mate, sometimes you just have to move on and if he does well for us then all power to him...and long may it continue..

ed your reading the table upside down mate.


{Ed0666's Note - true dat cuz. Just a little Sunday morning candor my old mucker. Love love love Rafa and I hope his magic continues.

I don't think the anti Rafa brigade have ever said he's not a good coach they just don't like the way he behaved when he was across the park and can't get over it.


{Ed025's Note - they need to get a life then sa, time has moved on and a lot of water has passed under that bridge, back the best guy for the job i say mate and at this moment its rafa..

It will be interesting to see how he behaves in the future if he doesn't get the amount of game time he thinks he deserves.

If we never draw a PL team in the cup and a conf team make the other final spot then i'd say we had a 50/ 50 chance of winning a trophy.

Woburn I wonder if the RS are saying "Let's not get too excited now boys, from the six games played we have played four of the bottom six".

Cookie78 on the other hand the conversation may have gone like this CA "I want James" Brands "No he doesn't fit the team profile" CA "If i don't get him i'll walk" Brands "Sorry but he dosen't fit the team profile" Moshiri "Sorry Brands we better let him have James as it would be too embarrassing if Carlo left two weeks after he signed" Brands "I think that's the wrong decision" Moshri "sorry but its my decision". Pure speculation of course but if the club was a bit more open to explaining why decisions are made then we may have a better understanding of what going on but they don't and that's their prerogative. It sucks though. Having said that they are extremely open about the stadium so they can be open if they want to.

Rondo is clearly not fit but did work hard so at least he's got a decent work ethic.

Only Gordon and Townsend turned up tonight the rest should have stayed on the bus and given their shirts to, well anyone really. Benitez has got a big job on his hands. What I find unacceptable is putting Simms on the bench when you know you have absolutely no intention of playing him. Putting Iwobi up front was a shocking decision in itself but to have a lad that plays in upfront sitting on the bench and not use him what sort of a message does that send to the youngsters. Big mistake in my opinion.
