I was thinking why on earth do we play like all we have to do is turn up in these games, then reading scored. why do we always seen laboured when we play a lower division team or any team we thing we should beat anyway, its almost like the players think is a training match, why is lennon at right back, b4 anyone says its a back 3 its not lennon barely gets past half way.

the fans make a huge effort to see this team play, if the players put as much effort in these games maybe we would not still be waiting after 20 yrs for a trophy

spot on mate just don't get lennon at right back we should have started browning there after all he played well at Swansea then had lennon and delboy as r wide men in place of the hopeless kone only reason I can think browning hasn't played is that coleman injury is a little worse than first thought so he protecting him for west brom match plus we just recalled jon jo Kenny from his loan spell at wigan as well

What is wrong with you guys. RM tried something different by half time it wasn't working so he fixed, we won. You don't think of the bigger picture. The League Cup is the only competition RM has the chance to try some new things on the pitch.Last season most fans were saying he was stubborn, inflexible, so when he tries something a little different he gets criticised. We don't know the 'ins' and 'outs' of what goes on at the club. I bet few of us realised wht Del Boy hadn't been given a start until last night but RM explained the reasons and very good ones they were too. I think we have done pretty well so far this season, one fefeat in 8 games and that was against MAN CITY.
5 away games , 3 wins and 2 draws with a little more luck we could have won at Swansea so let's stop the bloody whingeing

3.) 23 Sep 2015 20:49:06
Don't get me wrong I like Lennon but think his signing after Del Boy signing was strange, I honestly think he changed the system to play a few that hadn't featured and thought it would be enough anyway

4.) 23 Sep 2015 21:36:29
Just sad now moan about anything

5.) 23 Sep 2015 23:30:19
Well said Wellzee. I agree with pretty much everything you said. I'm glad RM gave players that haven't featured much so far some decent playing time. They deserve it. Doesn't bother me what formation he plays or even who he plays as long as we win. That has to be main priority surely.

At the same time I get what toffeblue is saying about the effort of the team at times. On occasion some of the players look lethargic and even sometimes the team does. Although very rarely this season so far. Lukaku is a prime example of a player that at times looks uninterested for whatever reason.

As I said all that stuff doesn't bother me when we win. Martinez has to be praised whenever we win and we should enjoy it. People will give out and complain though. Guess there is no pleasing some people. Wellzee I love your comment on we don't know the 'ins' and 'outs' of stuff that goes on behind the scenes.

No one outside the first team staff do so we have to assume teams are picked and set up in a certain way for a reason. Not everyone will agree with me and will want to do nothing but give out about formation or a player or whatever.

My opinion is as long as we're winning I'm happy with it. Just my opinion, I know it won't be everyone's.

lennon had a really good game the other night never stopped running and making himself available even put a couple of good tackles in! just shows the boys willingness to play wherever and whenever he can! but as someone mentioned we really needed him in a more attacking area he would have caused problems just as Gerry did!
Kone and Lukaku were poor if it hadn't been for Stones injury the new lad may have got the last 10 minutes.

7.) 24 Sep 2015 23:12:50
ok so my point being, why do we look like we only have to turn up against opposition like reading, barnsley or lesser teams, we always make them look good. we played better 2nd half granted but u can't tell me the 1st half performance from us, which is a regular feature when we play these teams, is something that does not need addressing. the team should be going out to show how good we are every game regardless of the opposition not go out thinking we will just walk through this game.

my other point is that experiment ok that's fine, but playing a right mid like lennon at right back why? he never gna be a right back, try wing back then ok fair play, I dnt get it bu ok experiment away.

now I am moaning about how the team play against lesser teams, and I don't see how anyone can be happy (win aside) playing like that because we will lose as many as we win.

leenon rb, I don't understand it bu ok

Everton sign Uruguayan striker Leandro Rodriguez?

Everton have signed Uruguayan striker Leandro Rodriguez from River Plate Montevideo according to their coach Juan Ramon Carrasco on local radio Sport 890.

"Leandro Rodriguez is gone. And they told me. He deserved it, "said Juan Ramon Carrasco

The 22 year old striker will join the toffees alongside centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori and will sign a contract on Saturday according to reports in South America.

The Uruguayan has scored 18 goals in 71 appearances.

first I have heard about this, do you know anythin about this ed?


{Ed025's Note - new to me as well TB..

Belgian journalist Sven Claes says Henen passed a medical at Finch Farm on Monday and will wear the number 39 shirt, after his favourite player Nicolas Anelka.

is this true eds?


{Ed025's Note - not that i am awareTB mate..

why doesn't the banter page load?


{Ed013's Note - I will look into it for you}

1.) Here here . Been trying all day.

seems rodwell rumour is gathering pace, I hope to god its rubbish, he is always injured and even when fit he not all that, I was not sure about robby when he took over but he has convinced me but if he signs rodwell I will take a step back, we all know rodwell, he was never great and since he left has not improved, I am hoping this is lazy reporting because if this is the player we are looking for we are in trouble.


1.) I thought Rodwell was very good. At the time he was 20/21? He was very comfortable on the ball and already had an intelligence and maturity to his game. As it is rumoured, £5m is an absoloute steal for a player with the class of Rodwell if he can get his fitness back I have no doubt he will go on to captain us. That is, if James McCarthy doesn't get it first!

2.) You must have gone to a different Goodison Park than me. Rodwell under Moyes never really got a chance. He's a good player in his own position and would make a good addition to our squad. As for the fitness concerns, there have been young players in the past with injury records that disappeared as they got older.Let's have Jack back!

The crowd were outstanding last night. That is what we need to be like every game. We never gabe uo nor did the players. let's keep it going people.

James' comments according to bet365.

Addressing his fans on Twitch, Rodriguez said [via AS]: "I've been coming in for a couple of days now, I had four days off.

"I'm preparing myself in case I have to play, I'm ready to do well if I have to play. I'm getting in good shape physically, I'm fine. I'm calm.

Incase "i have to" play. Not am ready and pushing, hoping to play no "incase I HAVE to play".

I hope this is due to miss interpratation (spelling) .

Judging by rafa's comments, James isn't fit enough as he hasn't trained. He isn't anywhere near ready for the squad so would only play if we came down with numerous injuries.

2.) 12 Sep 2021 08:20:03
I wouldn’t worry too much about the strict content of the comment. It’s not his native tongue and we can’t expect everything he says in English or everything that’s translated into English to fully represent what he’s trying to say.

He needs to get fit to Rafas standards and then we will see.

I am worried now.

Brands should be sacked by 2300 he is a phoney.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 20:42:26
While I think Brands has a lot to answer for, to be fair he has one of the hardest jobs in football history in shifting some of these players on. Made a rod for his own back in some cases.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:59:07
Remember the show he put on when Moise came. Looks a little embarrassing now.



14 Aug 2021 17:48:12
I have to say fans booing 45 mins into the first game of the season absolutly idiots. that's a great wsy to show you support everton.

Aside from the pathetic blue tinted glasses fans we played well controlled until the goal and swcond half we stepped up a gear.

Decoure was outstanding.


1.) 14 Aug 2021 21:38:26
Heard it, saw it. They are not supporters, they are members of the blue gang, Football is a sideshow.



10 Jul 2021 16:05:20
This is not everton related but i am wondering if any of the eds can tell me if when eng v germany have played in the knockout stages of a tornament has the winner always gone on to win the trophy. i know we did in 66 obvs and i also know germany did in 96.


{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

1.) 10 Jul 2021 22:53:44
No mate.2010.Germany beat us 4 1 in first knockout round but Spain won it 1 0 against Dutch in final.

Sky sports news has reported a player has been loaned "with a recall" clause.


{Ed002's Note - How could that player be registered? They also need to read the rules then.}

Its schindlers cat atm. Until they actually play for us no one knows. we can all say on paper he is better than him but the fact is we don't play on paper we play on a pitch so i will hold my opinion until the plays have played competitive games for a period.

Everyone of us need to raise the roof every game. Make goodison rock even if we fall behind we have got to make it loader then we ever have and help save our beautiful club from the drop. Rather than shout rubbish at our players we need to give thwm beleive and our unconditional support by making the place defening. please!

100% agree. The players respond to the fans. I have heard people say the players need to give the fans something to shout about which to a point i agree but i beleive the fans need to give the players something to fight for more. Fans moaning and booing make the players affraid to make a mistake while fans backing and encouraging the players by taking the roof off the place gives the players belief and an extra 10% all over the pitch. Today the fans we absolutly outstanding and it showed on the pitch. It was a joy. let's keep it going win lose or draw. Show why we clain to be thw best fans in the world.

I have seen managers play good football with other teams then come to us and for some reason can not replicate it, i am talking basic stuff passing patterns etc. I think its more of a deep rooted thing withing the club and players. The last time i seen the players all united was under moyes before that it was i am struggling to remember and after moyes nothing even carlo a world class manager could not sort us out we finished 12th. I personally think rafa is of the mind set of if your not all in you will go and felxes his muscles if you will and uses lucas digne as an example. If you do not put everyrhing in you will follow hin out the door. And for me its long over due to many times we have players going through the motions getting paid rediculous money. Its just not acceptable. I could be wrong but rafa did say i have foxed a problem i am hoping the plod on approch of some of the players is the problem he is reffering to.

Clearly ed. I have no idea how contracts work and i might sound stupid but surley surley no club would have a contract that will allow a player to just take a holiday mid season?


{Ed002's Note - No, his contract won't make provision for that.}
