marcelo gallardo's odds have fallen within the last day, reckon its an achievable option?

(i know betting odds mean absolutely nothing, if i whacked £50 on alan curbishly he'd probably end up in the running)


1.) 03 Dec 2019 15:55:58
ye right deal done great choice too.

2.) 03 Dec 2019 16:20:33
highly regarded in world football, was highly touted as replacement for valverde at barca, river plates most successful manager.



07 Aug 2019 12:06:10
talksport now saying we've bid for 30m awobi, something tells me that's a smokescreen? surely? please!?!?


{Ed002's Note - Another LW for the collection - perhaps a Richarlison replacement?}

1.) 07 Aug 2019 13:04:36
i'd hope not ed!

2.) 07 Aug 2019 13:12:32
What have you heard about Richarlison Ed? Is there any offers for him that we haven’t heard about?

3.) 07 Aug 2019 13:15:53
I can't understand a bid for Iwobi. Couldn't see Bernard or Richarlison going anywhere this season. Does nt recall make sense to me.



05 Aug 2019 13:31:08
french media stating we're about to sign right back sidibe from monaco, not sure on loan or permanent.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 14:16:19
Straight swap for Henry? Similar price tag.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 16:21:13
Heard Sidibe was 2mil for a season loan and about 13m permanent. Something about a knee injury stopping teams signing him outright.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 16:29:23
That's what's been reported. Could be another quality signing.



13 Jun 2019 15:58:59
rumours of us talking to david neres sparked back up again in brazil, actually achievable? or agent trying to drum up interest?


{Ed025's Note - a bit of both i imagine WB, we have shown interest before but a lot of top sides are looking at him as well mate, so it could end up a dog fight for his services..

1.) 13 Jun 2019 16:32:47
Would be a really good addition to the team in my opinion but as Ed says he’s quite hot property so will be tough to get. However hopefully whilst on international duty Richarlison has been telling him good things about us and as we’ve already dealt with his agents in signing Richarlison and Bernard might make the negotiating a bit easier, I know wishful thinking but here’s hoping.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 20:53:14
Neres will want European football most likely. I'd prefer Malcolm.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 22:04:17
He doesn't want European football then?

4.) 13 Jun 2019 22:52:19
I think these Moise Kean links/ rumours are a little bit of wishful thinking as well.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 00:11:10
I think we have an outside shot at Neres. The rumour mill keeps saying that we are in the lead. If we're willing to pay the most, he's a young kid and the Premier League is enough of a jump up for him for now. And, there are other Brazilians in our squad to talk up the project and get him interested. That said, I think the most likely outcome is that Ajax keeps him for another year. They'll have cashed in a couple chips after De Ligt goes and won't need to sell now, especially since they still have a strong team and CL football of their own next season.



03 Jun 2019 16:00:43
Few reporters from the star and mail saying gomes has told friends he wants to stay at everton, and despite west ham bidding again today, barcelona officials expect him to still sign for everton.

joyce saying moshiri has personally took charge of manager hunt now and moyes is back in the frame. sigh, LET YOUR DIRECTOR OF FOOTBALL MAKE THE CHOICE JUST SIT BACK AND LET HIM WORK FOR GODS SAKE, breathe out.


1.) 11 Dec 2019 09:50:25
Totally agree, brands is employed as director of football let him pick who he feels is the right manager for us.

{Ed002's Note - That is not his forte.}

2.) 11 Dec 2019 09:52:57
leading on from this, anyone think people will slowly start to turn against farhad? i know right that he pumps all this cash in and wants what's best for the club, but this constant thing of him doing stuff himself which isn't good footballing decisions is costing us more? as fans we're fed up of a non football expert making all the decisions and he knews this, hence why he got brands in, but he's not even using him can't resist the urge to get involved.

3.) 11 Dec 2019 09:54:22
''and moyes is back in the frame. ''

Crikey there goes my appetite for lunch 🤢.

4.) 11 Dec 2019 10:29:07
Brands should have some input though ed doesn’t he pick what style of football we play and the players to fit into that and then surely a manager who plays and has worked under that type of system?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he will have input.}

5.) 11 Dec 2019 10:32:05
And Brands being reluctant to sack Silva when Moshiri wanted rid after the Norwich game.
How does that make you feel about Brands ability to make the right decision.

6.) 11 Dec 2019 10:45:43
i think it will be moyes blue.

7.) 11 Dec 2019 11:05:06
Smit - brands in my opinion has shown he’s got the ability to make right decisions, look how he’s transformed the squad since his arrival. Moved on lookman, vlasic, onyekuru, McCarthy, mirallas and Galloway to name a few and replaced them in my opinion with better players Iwobi, kean, Gbamin, Delph and sidibe. Unfortunately we haven’t seen the best of some of the new recruits yet (injury/ adjusting to league) but definitely upgrades on what he inherited.

8.) 11 Dec 2019 11:07:41
WBlue, If he would come until may then go etc. I could live with that . however he probably wants to be around for the new stadium mate, and that fills me personally with a lethal dose of melancholy .

9.) 11 Dec 2019 11:50:04
dont see the point in signing moyes mate, may aswel put duncan in until the end they'll both achieve marginally the same.

10.) 11 Dec 2019 12:19:29
Yeah mate, if DF keeps getting the points let it 'take it's own course ' so to speak, why not .

11.) 11 Dec 2019 13:07:43
duncan isn't the long term option for me, he doesn't even want it people keep missing! however if you're getting moyes then ask dunc to take interim until the end 100%.

12.) 11 Dec 2019 13:59:50
I was being optimistic as well as kind, what I like about Dunc amongst other things of course, is his honesty and lack of 'XXL ego' in terms of he doesn't put himself as a long term contender.
Very refreshing in today's game and a big positive for EFC at this crucial time.



10 Dec 2019 10:22:41
seen a lot of blues online wanting dunc to take charge for rest of the season, my thing to say is let's not get carried away. great result on saturday and brilliant for him, but one result doesn't mean he should be given it until the end of the season, everton should still be looking to get a manager in now that they see taking the club forward into beyond the end of next season so he can start building with what remains of this season, do i think vitor periera is the man? not so sure.


1.) 10 Dec 2019 11:08:28
WBlue, the dust will settle mate, It's just a sudden jubilation thing lol we are not used to it are we 😁.

2.) 10 Dec 2019 12:02:56
Agree with Blue247, (there's a first) .

3.) 10 Dec 2019 12:33:04
DFS, let me know when you go for a brace (I'll have a drink to celebrate )

4.) 10 Dec 2019 13:11:35
oh no absolutely blue, i'm made up for him and still absolutely buzzing now, just wouldn't want it to turn sour for him if he continued, as he's even said himself this is a job for a top manager.

5.) 10 Dec 2019 13:22:15
Just a quick question to above posters, forget rest of the season, my question is this.

Would you want a new Manager for next Wednesdays cup tie at Goodison, or Dunc on the sideline.

For my penny’s worth, I would have Dunc there to get Goodison rocking under the lights.

After that then if needed bring the new Manager in.

For now though, I would take it a game at a time and not rush a new Manager in just yet.

6.) 10 Dec 2019 14:02:46
its a tough one bignev, told everyone who would listen we'd beat chelsea as they're in a bit of a slump at the minute, poor against west ham and villa 9even though they scraped a win) leicester is a different game who will bring their best side, its difficult its a tough game either way.

7.) 10 Dec 2019 14:45:10
It is wblue, that is why I think we need any advantage we can get, if we go a goal down, with Dunc Managing, the crowd will still get behind the team.

However with a new Manager, the crowd might not be so forgiving.

Personally myself, I would have Dunc in charge of the Leicester game, keep it simple and get stuck in like they did last Saturday.

8.) 10 Dec 2019 14:52:15
Well it's down to the crowd to keep the atmosphere rocking even if a goal down, big dunc in charge or not. Goodison shouldn't need an icon on the touchline to get them motivated.

9.) 10 Dec 2019 15:08:42
If we can get our 1st choice manager in then get him in. If not then Dunc would be my choice and reevaluate on a game by game basis.

10.) 10 Dec 2019 16:27:42
i'd like to think a new manager gets a crowd going regardless bignev, all be it if its moyes big sam maybe not, but if its a manager say gallardo optimism rises again, dunc has the connection but normally the new manager factor kicks in either way.

11.) 10 Dec 2019 17:03:16
I can see logic in keeping him in charge till Christmas period is out the way, we will need everything Dunc gave that team on Saturday the basics which is what we need at mo not someone who is going to take time to get his philosophy across. It’s quite obvious there was no plan to deal with Silva sacking we all saw it coming weeks prior. They should of been planning for couple of months, so don’t rush now while there is someone that is getting the players to fight for everything,

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that metz..

12.) 10 Dec 2019 18:07:57
Agree Metz, Dunc did the basic things and the team knew what they had to do, bringing a Manager right away could or could not work.

He has to get his set play across which might take a few weeks, for the time being, we saw what Dunc brought to the team, no note pads, no over complicated tactics, just sheer hard work and closing players down.

Why rush for now.



06 Dec 2019 11:35:23
respected paul joyce saying our list of names include;
ajax manager
poch been approached according to him, no chance but imagine!


1.) 06 Dec 2019 16:01:13
Well we ain't getting 4 of those.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 16:39:14
Only need one smit:-)

3.) 06 Dec 2019 17:52:28
Yeah and knowing our luck we'll get Pochetino only for VAR to rule it out and replace him with Moyes.

4.) 06 Dec 2019 18:04:34
But VAR to apologise when we get Moyes back saying they were wrong.

5.) 07 Dec 2019 07:15:49
If that is the list Pochettino (spelling) is a definite no. The other three are possible, in order Moyes, Ancelotti, Pereira. First two out of work, Pereira like Benitez currently employed Chinese Super League till January.

6.) 07 Dec 2019 10:13:20
Getting Ancelotti out of Napoli would require some kind of masterstroke and a lot of cash I suspect.
Moyes is done but most are blind to see it. Pochetino wouldn't come and will have bigger offers.



06 Dec 2019 08:41:18
Clubs an embarrassment, making silva wait in finch farm for ten hours? not right at all, farhad moshiri holding a meeting with the players? why? that should be brands. its a mess why employ a director of football if you're not going to let him do the job.


1.) 06 Dec 2019 09:44:39
I do wonder if under our 'new' model the Manager has a say in the players brought in or is given the Players and told sort it out. Preference if you must have a DoF is that the Manager (who after all should know his idea of players needed to fit his preferred system) has the major say in incomings.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 10:55:57
WBlue - why shouldn’t the guy who pays the wages of these dross individuals be allowed to have a meeting with them?

3.) 06 Dec 2019 11:09:08
The messing yesterday made us look pathetic again. I cannot see any reason why it took all day to sack him.

4.) 06 Dec 2019 12:31:03
Who said it took all day to sack him? I imagine there would have been several discussions taking place and I’m sure silva would have been given an opportunity to say how he’d turn things around, all these things take time.

5.) 06 Dec 2019 14:12:20
your owner can tqalk to the players yeah no worries its his club, he shouldn't be the one discussing footballing matters with them though, it should be, wait for it, your director of football!

6.) 06 Dec 2019 15:27:06
If I was the owner I would be giving them a right mouthful. Then I would have a word with the director of football and tell him to start doing his Effin job properly or he will be following Marco.

7.) 06 Dec 2019 16:12:16
Would you prefer we sacked him and had him replaced in hours like Spurs did to Poch? 🤷🏻‍♂️
I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to sack someone.



02 Dec 2019 14:41:58
could be seen as mad but just m yopinion, the rafa appointmenet everyones going on about may be a mistake, personally think he's outdated in this league now and will struggle with us being a negative side. newcastle look a better side under bruce this season than they did under rafa, just think the league has surpassed him now.


1.) 02 Dec 2019 15:01:34

2.) 02 Dec 2019 15:05:27
WBlue, finding a new manager that 'floats' the majorities ' boats' on here must be like cracking the 'enigma code' mate 🙄.

3.) 02 Dec 2019 16:00:16
Posted the same thing about Rafa last week wblue, have no answers about who should be appointed but don't want him.

4.) 02 Dec 2019 23:44:20
The only thing that will float everyone’s boats is results!

just me who thinks no one actually knows who we're looking at? its not moyes otherwise he'd have been in place by now? is it pereira? or are we being used as a recycled story from 2013 to get him a bumper chinese contract can't see us ever wanting him with that record? i think its brands whose got hold of this and its very much so like his transfers, no ones 100% sure what's true and what's not.

listen said it previously, its not the time to panic and make a safe bet, i know we're in the bottom three but 2 wins we're back mid table and wondering whatever the issue was, was the same when got got allardyce and everyone was fuming saying we were never really in danger so why did we get him, this is the same principle with moyes, learn from leicester get the manager you want and you can see leading the club out next season as well as this, give the manager 6 months to get to grips with this squad and move on next season.

ahahaha moyes didn't have huge amounts to spend with us! doesn't matter! he had huge amounts to spend at united how'd that turn out! a david moyes everton in this day and age is no better than sean dyche's burnley sorry to break it to you the leagues changed. when we used to hit fifth, that was before city had their riches and before spurs knew what to do. not forgetting wolves leicester all in the mix now xD.

great view of it mate, there's no disputing he seems a top bloke dyche and i wasnt disputing that. its the footballing side of it, could sean dyche grip hold of a richarlison and make him a better player? possibly, but the football would be hung out to dry within weeks, for me its 9with utmost respect0 very similar to a young sam allardyce, plays basic football there's always this question of oh if they had the players they wouldn't play like that, however i feel a couple weeks into it they fall back in to old habits, its a no from me however see the good points.

bw2412, interesting article, read up yesterday he leaves napoli still close friends with the chairman, in regards to the anceolotti v moyes question its a clear winner in carlo, but i'd like to thinkt the club have a list that consists of just him and moyes, in regards to who i want i replied above mate, but here it is again; "in the question of who i had in mind, that's the question, apart from the obvious options of poch marcelino, i did quite like the thought of gallardo (has since ruled out moving from river) apart from that i am stumped unless the coaches are obviously not going to come (your likes of nagelsmann, ten hag, allegri) its a difficult appointment mate"

would you say he'd be a good fit at everton ed 0001?


{Ed001's Note - I don't know, his style of play is a worry, but it is hard to know if that is the way he wants to play or chooses to do so to make the most of the resources at his disposal. The rest of his work is a perfect fit. He gets heavily involved in the community work, is an excellent man manager and motivator of players, but the tactics are something that might not get the fans on board. He does very much suit the profile of Everton as a community club though, even the way he dumped Burnley's fine system for late arrivals etc, to replace it with a 'wheel of fortune' forfeit system which means players have to do extra community work etc. He also has the club very much embedded into the local community there, makes time for the things Everton are known for.

It is difficult to see anyone better suited as a person though. That work ethic, the community spirit, the willingness to put the club's long term future over short term buying, it is perfect for a club that wants to build a long term future challenging at the top end. I know everyone enjoyed the win with a degree of Burnley-style football under Duncan Ferguson, but it is not what fans want as a long term plan from a manager brought in from the outside.}
