El-Shawaaray has today been sidelined by injury for at least 2 months. so there we are, another ship sailing on by not that it was ever going to happen anyway. never mind folks, we've still got McGready - all will be ''astounding'

Not only will all be "astounding", but the Qatar warm-weather pre-season in a season will make sure we're "perfect " for the rest of season and the players are "phenomenal"". Hmmm - right :-(

Aye fantastic news McGeady back from suspension how unfortunate.
I hope 2 God Martinez doesn't start him in the Derby or it'll be like the red rubbish having an extra man from the outset.

Heard a rumour that Eto had suggested to Stones & Barkley that Everton wasn't good enough for them and they should move away to a better club!! If there is any truth to this, good ridance Eto.Trip to Qatar is for team building and new tactics, I hope? Apparently Bobby is very pleased with what he has already achieved at the training camp.Hopefully that will be a plan B . I just hope they have practised taking corners and free kicks.Here's hoping?

so what, this goes on at all Clubs. Eto is a very good player and if he did say this then he was just passing on his opinion. In all honesty unless Roberto Martinez has suddenly had a change of heart and achieved a miracle in Qatar, his damage to this great Club has already been done and Eto's opinion will prove to be correct. Should we by some miracle survive this season then Kenwright should as a good Chairman evaluate and if he does so correctly will realise that Roberto is not the man for us going forward.

It's not going to be a miracle is it if we survive . Stop being a drama queen, we have had a bad season yes but still in the Europa and if eto was trying to unsettle players then no this generally doesn't happen where players unsettle team mates.

Hearing rumours around of Stephane Mbia.
Cameroonian centre-midfielder, who plays Centre-back also.
We have supposedly offered the Sevilla man a contract, as he is out of contract at the end of the year.
Believable I guess if the Ossie rumours are true.
I wouldn't go for him myself. Another step in the wrong direction if you ask me (same with McMannaman)

I hear that Real Socidad have approached us about pienaar and by sounds of it he wants to go. then the potential rumours of yaya toure off to Milan which means barkley off to city.which to be honest is not an issue with form this season. He is likely to command a hefty fee. who should we replace him with? with our league position at a very dangerous point. who we are interested in and who we can get are 2 different things.

Don't be ridiculous! We need to keep Barkley! At the end of the day, yes he will leave eventually but why we have the chance we use him to push the club forward, granted he isn't playing great this season. But name me one player who is?.

Players don't lose it at 25? They do if they have injuries, coincidentally, james vaughans career was over even younger and he had a better injury record than pato. Pato's problems bar injuries were his FINISHING, couldn't finish a grape, he well finished and that's the reason he's still playing in a crap league, el shawaary is also very injury prone and his attitudr stinks, they may of been good on fifa 4 years ago but they are done and i'd rather not play host to 2 passengers.

ETO'O LATEST

Developments now on Samuel Eto'o's imminent move from Everton to Sampdoria now, and Sky Italia confirm the deal has hit a snag with the Premier League side demanding additional funds to let the striker leave.
The Serie A side are confident the striker will make the move having agreed personal terms but both clubs will now have to agree on a revised fee.
However, New York Cosmos' late interest complicates matters.
Also the Dog and Partridge FC have enquired as to the players availability as it seems he wants to be anywhere but Everton! speaking to the janitor at Goodison park, who seems to have been left in charge, stating he doesn't give a toss either way!

I wouldn't want Younes Kaboul anywhere near our club. Aaron Lennon might offer more to our squad, but he's clearly also not good enough for Tottenham, so why would he be good enough for us?
Whatever there might be to these transfer speculations, I just don't see how letting our better players go and replacing them with rejects and journeymen is anything but a recipe for mediocrity and failure.

Harry Kane has done well - and seems like someone who will make it - but let's see how he does over the next few seasons before he can really be acclaimed as an established proven Premier League star. We've had too many of our own - Barkley and Rodwell to name but two - who've not (yet?) truly realised their promise & potential after being heralded as wonder-kids.

Ed025: you're probably right - BK will no doubt batten down the hatches, ride out the storm of discontent, and expect RM to kick-on next season. If that happens, and RM does prove successful, then I'll willingly eat a double-helping of humble pie with a large side-order of humility and a foaming flagon of the beer I've been crying into this season!
However, like so many former RM-backers, I no longer have optimism about what he'll achieve at Everton. There's only so far imho that him putting square pegs in round holes AND forcing formations/tactics on players who aren't comfortable with them AND waiting for the right players (at the right price) or youngsters to develop in order to play his way before it all ends in tears.
Unless RM swallows his pride (prejudices) and realises what would bring success for Everton as we stand at the moment, then he's not the right man to take Everton forward. Thinking about what RM is attempting with our current squad, I paraphrase an old saying: you can put a pig in a fur coat, but it's still a pig.
Maybe we will end up with a squad of players that have the ability - and self-belief - to deliver the beautiful game, but we sure ain't there at the moment.

Sad thing is, the only replacement would be even worse than eto and we would have to suffer yet another below par addition.
The part of all this that saddens me most is the names we are linked with.
Don't get me wrong they are professional footballers but they are NOT the calibre of player we should be discussing.
I have seen we are linked with m'bia again! I think he had a good season or 2 maybe 10 yrs ago and is always available on a free ffs!
I have lost all faith in a manager I didn't want at the club.
He did surprise me last year but in games against c palace and ESP the Derby disgrace we could see the real Bobby!
People say it's a blip like moyes second season but the reality is that moyes adopted a more in your face approach that season and changed it after consulting the players and we improved.
The problem we have now is tactics and we are sure that Bobby will not change.
He can't change without admitting that his entire philosophy is doomed to failure and so through stubbornness he will continue his style of play until the bitter end!
That will either be relegation or his sacking/resignation.
The players look so confused and clueless it is embarrasing to put them on TV!
After last season we should have been linked with bigger moves for bigger players and really created a feel good factor and give the squad an injection of hope and excitement but in reality we showed little ambition (imho).
The last time I saw an everton team this lost was under w smith and if we go for a more celebrated replacement we'll need to give him money.

sa90: Why would we need a Pochettino when we already have a Pinocchio at the club?

Wowww! Not been on here for maybe 2 years! Are all the same lads on here? don't know if its the same ed's from 2 years ago either!
Anyway, wanted to come on and tell you something I heard regarding the blue men, Pienaar is apparently off to join up with Moyes in Spain, either this month or end of the season and we are definitely interested in Aaron Lennon but only on a loan, Spurs looking for cash but clubs that are interested aren't willing to pay a fee and we are one of them clubs, swap deal with Mirallas that's been reported in press recently is complete nonsense.
Anyway, if there is lads on here from 2 years ago when I was a regular poster, do you even remember me haha!? To b honest I can't remember any of the user names but I do remember a poster who was the most negative blue I've ever known! What was his name?

I heard a rumour that kev mirallas wanted to take the penalty to score as a dedication to the wolfsburg player and his mate; malanda who died in the car accident. If true I understand why he wanted to. But still think it was against team orders. His head went because he missed; hence subbed. Sorry not know how reliable this is; but we still did not win

Sounds true imo Zulu. I actually had a feeling that it was the case when he stepped up to take it. But at the end of the day, a peno is different to free kicks and open play, as it needs a cool head and cooler finish.

Yes he's lost a friend, and yes he wants to show respect, but there are other ways of doing it. And Football is a business where wins count for anything. He needed to leave it to bainsey, and keep his emotions in tact.

I do feel sorry for Kev, but he's gone and shot himself in the foot. Reckon he will be off in this window or the next.

Lukaku honoured his friend during west ham game. Why didn't mirallas do the same when he scored.

They receive massive wages as professional footballers and sud act accordingly. I personally think he got to big 4 his boots and Spurs want him think I would ket him go myself

Can't buy in to this as an excuse for him. He scored a great free kick against the Hammers so that should have been his show of respect. Rom did it in that game when he scored. Kev was just being selfish against the baggies and the fact he was subbed at h/t has given him time to come up with something in an attempt to keep the fans off his back. Shameless
