Hi Blues

This may clear the Barkley to Liverpool rumour groundsheet up a bit, nice and easy one sentence from Bobby, its on the web

The Toffees boss says his side have already turned down a £50 million bid from Manchester United and have no intention of selling the midfielder to their rivals

Dont understand how some journos keep their jobs sometimes, I wish I was on £1000s of pounds to just make billycans up all the time, what a great job that would be

Your probably right but never say never in football the same happened when the Rooney speculation started and he soon popped smoke (once a blue always a blue) not for one second saying he will but stranger things have happened.

Hello ed I have a question for you.I remember a few months back that I said Lukaku was not worth 25mill but my opinion on him has changed he seems up for it now looks a lot fitter and has stopped talking about Chelsea, here is my question Mourinho was at our game when we played Arsenal do u know if he was there to watch Barkley or Lukaku and what do you think our chances of keeping Lukaku are without Barkley going the other way as I know Chelsea have a big interest in him.Cheers

Stef the blue

{Ed002's Note - He was there to see Lukaku. I don't see any chance of Lukaku staying at Everton without RB going as part of the deal.}

Ed do you think that 3rd place is a distinct possibility. And do you know if we have an investor for a new stadium or is it just rubbish.

COYB

emeraldblue

{Ed025's Note - 3rd will be very hard EB, and the stadium talk is just that at the moment mate talk..

I would just love us to finish fourth. If we did I think we will become a bargain for an investor who will see our potential as a business and as a football club.
Three key figure heads have got us where we are and I don't care whether other blues agree with me or not, but Kenright, Moyes and Roberto have done this.
Roberto was the big shot in the arm as he has that people factor and is brilliant on tv.
Fingers crossed that in five games time we will be there, but I am under no illusions Man City will gunning for us as will Utd. Sides will be looking to spoil the party and put us back in our box.
Over to Roberto and players.

Afternoon eds and blues

Quick question about Powell ed have we go genuine interest in him I remember one of the eds saying Martinez was checking with the Wigan staff about him.

I think he would be a great signing he is a good finisher with him and barkley swapping positions thought out the match would be hard to defend

Thanks

There welcome to him at the price or any deal including Barkley


I'd take a shot on Ba for around 5 - 7.5 mil instead then use the rest of our transfer funds to lallana


Rami (cb) looks to be leaving Valencia on a free

Wouldnt have Ba. Only good when it suits him. Very lazy and lethargic on the pitch. Sure he can score but wouldn't expect more than ten goals a season from him. Even though he is a blue I think we would be priced out bidding for Lallana. I think 3 to 4 quality signings and a couple of loan players next season to push us on. Who them signings are only Bobby knows

Hi Ed, what's your take on the proposed new stadium plans, they are saying we should hear something in the next few months re a new 55,000 seater stadium, this would be the icing on the cake for this season, also good hard fought 3 points today c'mon you Blues, GuernseyBlue

GuernseyBlue

{Ed025's Note - it would be great if it came to fruition GB, its a great time to be a blue mate..

Err, new stadiums cost money, lots of money. We haven't got a pot to guy rope in and the City Council are chopping jobs and services in a drastic attempt to fall within budget. Given the above, who the hell is funding this stadium? We can't attract the investment and the board have priced the club out of a sale. It's just hot air in my opinion.

{Ed025's Note - it will be investors and the city council who will fund it cadet, along with the sale of goodison, it is real estate mate, which all investors are looking for..

Joe Anderson is a man to be admired and respected.If he says there'll be an announcement on a new stadium SITE, then take it as fact.
As for a new stadium getting built, that will depend on investment, which certainly wouldn't be forthcoming without a decent site for said investors own infrastructure to showcase their wares.

I think drmic has already agreed something with arsenal and I think we could spend 11m on something much better like putting it towards a bid for lukaku and if qpr don't go up remy has a buyout clause of 10.5m and he's only 24 and has 13 goals this season so I would take remy rather than drmic and if we get champions league I think we would have a bit more money to spend. I think caulker is a class defender and would welcome any of those freebies, never really heard of that mane fellow though.

MinatoEFC

No thank you Ince, Colback, or Drmic, How about Ki, Lukaku and Remy. Ince if not good enough for Palace certainly not good enough for us., Coalback simply not good enough, and Drmic at 11m no way unproven PL player. Ki was was great against us today and would suit our passing game, Remy proven at this level. If we get top 4 we have to go 4 top players.

Lukaku or Bony 20m
Remy 10m
Ki 5m
Barry Free
Caulker 6m Decent GK on loan.
Delu on loan again or someone else if he wants or Barca want him to go. Spend 41m sell 11m we have to spend 30m at least.

sell
Kone 5m
Gibson 5m
Alcaraz free
Joel 1m
Traore release from loan.

To do well on all on fronts you need to spend big and have a big squad.

I'd take coleback and barry on frees, batshuayi for about 10 mill, and put the rest of our war chest into lukaku. Deloufeu back on loan next season, whilst selling nobody, we need to increase squad numbers to manage with all competitions next season. Quadruple on the cards lol.

From tha list I would take Barry, possibly Colback and Ince but it would depend on wages with both, iI think both could do a job but would need to be on realisic wages. I would wait to see who gets relegated and promoted before splashing out on the cash. If we could I would like to see Lukaku stay but If Remy or Bony were both available then I think we could attract them both so it would be down to cost. I also like Ba but am not sure he would suit our style of play. One thing is certain ee definitely will need a bigger squad next year even if we bring more of our talented youngsters into the squad.

I have no problem at all with Everton's use of loan players and it is to Martinez' credit that he's got them to work as well as they have done.

Hi lads, just wanted to win you good luck at getting 4th place and cl next season, great to see a team with English youngsters playing fantastic football and something to look forward to watching when your on sky. A quick question though, who do you guys fancy as replacement for lukaku next season if you don't get him? Also a nice change of pace seeing transfer rumours, being a leeds fan out page is erm preoccupied with other views at the minute!

Harte of leeds

{Ed002's Note - Batshuayi and Sergio Garcia have been looked at.}

(10)
(3)

Hey

Ideally Lukaku and I suspect we have the finance to buy him plus a little extra for other players without selling. If not, I like the way Bony plays at Swansea and Loic Remy at Newcastle/QPR. In terms of Rom, I have a sneaky feeling that even if we finished 5th he would consider signing if we can meet the fee. He has clearly bonded with the fans, the club, the players, the Chairman and of course Bobby. I wouldn't be surprised if he lessened his/his agents wage demands to come to a club which is progressing and he has a strong emotional bond with, just look at the way he celebrated with Bobby. He is only young and if it didn't work out for him he has time on his side. Only my humble opinion.

And thanks just hoping we get stability more than anything prem can wait in my opinion would just be nice for no drama!

The reason everton are still in with the chance for 4th place is mainly down to martinez he has done a wonderful job this season a bit of a shaky spell mid season but been brilliant since and the game against fulham will go down as a very important 3 points and barkley going off at half time was maybe a good thing because it allowed naismith to come on and he turned the game on its head he was excellent like he was in the arsenal game and he should be given a chance now to show how good a player he really is. I don't think some fan's realise the amount of terrible injuries this player has had everytime he came back he would get injured again. let's just hope those days are over and the evertonians get behind him. anyway ed good luck to the toffees for the rest of the season. and btw I am rangers fan and we have very serious problems up here but I still keep my eye on the toffees :)

jamesmcdee

{Ed025's Note - i have always championed naisy james, he is a fine player, who never gives less than 100%, ED007 told me about him a few years ago and said he was special, and with him being the celtic ED, you know how much of a compliment that is mate..good luck to rangers, im sure you will be back where you belong shortly..

Thanks ed for your thought's now to another point about him do you think if he continues his current form that he would be good enough for the likes of your manchester united man city or chelsea's I won't even dare mention that other diddy team from your area lol. I must be honest I will never ever forgive naisy for walking away from rangers and for the comment's he made but I do wish him well and hope if his perfomance's do continue to be exceptional to the end of the season that you can hang onto him next season and beyond.

jamesmcdee

{Ed025's Note - he is not at the same level as rooney, aguero, or suarez james, but he fits into our set up very well, playing in the hole off a guy like lukaku suits him down to the ground, or even as a false No9 like he did on sunday, we will hang on to him mate, as he is not showy or always in the limelight, he has blossomed under roberto martinez because he is not played out of position all the time, unlike the situation we had under our former manager..

Wrong Lancerboy.The player can dictate where he goes simply by refusing to join a club.If Chelsea are insistant on selling Lukaku, the buying club can be the players choice simply by him refusing all other suitors.

I've had a look on the gunners sight I can't believe the fans are wanting a new manager Wenger has been a servant of the highest class he is one of the best managers on the planet an they don't come moor loyal than him he has won top trophies with them also he created the invincibles which I don't think will ever be done again by anyone also he hasn't spent hundreds of millions in his time there he has done mostly cheap strong deals he hasn't been able to spend like the other top clubs. If he wants to leave then that's different but the fans and the board can't start turning on him that would be really wrong and there lucky to have him

I think we'll have Martinez for 2 or 3 seasons before he moves on

there has been rumours for weeks regarding clubs looking at Martinez

When he was at wigan and Liverpool came knocking he never outright rejected them, same when we came knocking.

his stock has risen loads since he joined us and it looks like it's only going to keep climbing- making any interested clubs move for him sooner rather than later

He's only 19 but plays well above his years and yes has made some mistakes but in his position that happens, he is showing signs already of a great player like today against the gooners. I have watched everton since six years old and now 40 and have to say we have a gem for the the future. COYB.

The only worrying thing with this is where does jags fit back in, I'm a huge fan of jags but have to say stones passing is a lot better which has been shown in our past six wins, RM has some thinking to do.

Having 3 very good centre backs allows us to rotate when necessary and rest the likes of Distin who will not last forever, Stones can also allow coleman a rest in the right back role when needed.

Wasn't he bought as a right back?
As said, it'll be interesting to see if he retains his place in the run-in.
Nice to see young players picked up from the lower leagues get their chance though.
I personally would also like to see Everton play European football next season, hopefully CL and not the curse that is the Europa League.

Cheers Juicer, I am not sure if Moyes bought Stones specifically as a right back but he does have a talent for spotting a good defender when he sees one (not all the time though) I am glad he did sign Stones though that's for sure.

Ed given steven naismiths perfomance in turning the game around against fulham do you think he warrants a starting place this weekend in what is really a must win game against arsenal if you are to have a chance of making the top 4. I think he does simply because he was outstanding against fulham when he came on and certainly won everton the points and also he got man of the match the thing is who drop's out if he is to start.

Further to my post down below. thanks for the positive comments Cowpat Sid and Ollie Jennings. I would add that the so called top 4 is actually potentially a top 6 or 7. When you consider that Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, The reds, Us, Man Utd, and Spurs are all capable of putting a winning run of a few games together. or alternatively any of the squads could lose an important player (Van Persie at Utd for example) that makes a team drop valuable points.then this leaves a situation where 3 clubs will invest heavily in order to gamble for Champions League qualification and get the financial returns that come with it. but actually will not get that return. What is very important for us is that we have hauled ourselves into this position without taking a gamble on ever increasing debt. I suspect that in the next 5 or 6 years one of these big clubs will file for bankrupcy in a similar fashion to Glasgow Rangers. The sums of 7 into 4 just do not fit.

I think we can rule out Arsenal going bankrupt IMO they are run on a very sound financial footing, much like ourselves. If for some reason the money left MC and Chelski they will be in all sorts of trouble. However, as things are at present Spuds have got to be the favourite to have some sort of money problems. It will be interesting to see their transfer strategy in the next window as they don't have another Bale to sell for stupid money. There may be a fair few of the current crop on the market

Question for huytonbluecraig: you posted "Cowpat sid is a legend among football forums globally and has sorely been missed in his absence. Feel like I'm writing a monologue for him, but his banter and jokes were clever and hilarious. Long live cowpat or god rest his soul!" Were you being ironic? I suspect that my "sense of humour bypass" might have been switched on when I read that or that my Sensitive-Sid triggers might have over reacted ;-)

It was actually a calling to u to come back as your original poster name as I was hating guessing which posts were yours. I suspected Gabriel and hancock were your other alias' but couldn't be sure, but just knew a heartfelt post would bring u back out of the woodwork! Long live cowpat. Enough of the sentimental crap now let's have u back giving us some funny reads (banter) and some informative posts. Speak to u soon buddy.;)

No humour bypass by the way. couldn't agree with u on the john stones playing centre mid, but I wouldn't go against a 3 centre back partnership when barry's out something like this against city could be good to pack the defense and midfield to make it difficult for them, but also allow us to break fast in numbers.

plenty of fresh attacking options on the bench to freshen up the attack in 2nd half if needed too.

Recent news article:

It has been whispered as a rumour in pubs across Liverpool, occasionally it is even mentioned publicly by executives at both clubs. Today those rumors became fact as Everton and Liverpool announced a historic groundsharing agreement at a brand new stadium.

The stadium would seat 55,000 spectators, and even include a small section behind one goal that could be converted to standing room only at some point in the future. Of greater concern to Everton, the stadium would also include several hundred luxury boxes, allowing the current tenants of Goodison Park to up their matchday revenue from the paltry sums they receive at Goodison Park.

For both clubs location was an important factor, and both clubs and the city came through with an inspired idea. The new stadium will be built in between Goodison Park and Anfield inside Stanley Park. In exchange for the land in the park, both clubs will be donating their current grounds back to the city of Liverpool. The city council plans to demolish both stadiums and turn the area into more green space for Stanley Park.

Other features include an orientation of one goal facing Goodison Park and the opposite towards Anfield in a nod to both clubs. The hope is that the raucous supporter's stands behind each goal will develop the history and tradition currently found at Goodison and Anfield. Both clubs will have team stores on the grounds, as well as separate changing rooms on the home side.

While the deal still has to be ratified by the Liverpool City Council, it is expected to be a formality. All of the members issued statements of support for the announcement, and a meeting has been scheduled for 2 weeks from now for official approval.

Construction is expected to begin this summer, and it is unlikely the stadium will be ready before the 2016-2017 season. The price is being quoted at £400 million, but it would not be surprising to see the cost rise to £500 million after delays and changes are factored in.

Apart from the rivalry between us i'd say its a good idea.both teams have there own home changing room.more financial profit for us and the nice touch of the angle of the pitch so the goals face our old grounds.there is bitter rivalry in Italy but think there is only 1 or 2 teams in the italian top flight that don't ground share.its obviously a april 1st joke

Anybody else here wishing it wasn't an april fools joke and think it would propel us into a much more marketable not to mention profitable football club. I would sell almost anything to have this happen, surely both liverpool supporting council members as well as everton supporting ones can see not only the sense of this, but the benefit it would pose for both clubs. Come on city council, do the right thing and put merseyside back on the european football map for 2 teams fighting for european honours and bring back the glory days which flocked interest and tourism to our city from abroad as barca does for its city.

Lukaku's agent confirms meeting with Levy has alreday taken place and the potential of a GBP25m move and substantial increase to the current GBP40k per week wages. Is this games? I cannot imagine a greater need for RM to have his strkers fully focused on winning every one of the remaning game and not to be distracted by the other clubs openly discussing other teams players. Of course, if the CL dreams becomes reality what will LuKaku want then? Perhaps just shows that respect and dignity, that is EFC, is simply a matter of either you have it or you dont.

I don't think he would go there TT, firstly they won't get in the Champs league, secondly I don't think they will have the money due to overspending on crap in the summer last year, they would have to ship out most of the 110 million they spent and who will pay the prices Levy would be asking, they would have to take a serious hit and as we all know love him or hate him Daniel Levy does not lose money.

If we do not get 4th then Lukaku will undoubdtedly be off to another club that is in the champs league as there will be a few that would want they lad.

This is pure desperation from the spuds and the way I see a underhand tactic to disrupt our team in the final few games, this is where more than ever we can show our guts and talent and have that 4th spot. I hope they do land him and his goals dry up sucked up by the moral vacum that is Tottenham Hotspur! Do I sound bitter and twisted lol.

Just had a read of the original article in Het Nieuwsblad which states clearly that Everton are in prime position to sign Lukaku, largley due to his desire to stay at the club. However Suprs are also lurking. They cite the oh-so-reliable Daily Mail as being the source of the £20 million being touted

They then raise the perfectly reasonable question of, should Chelsea demand £20 million, would we be able to pay? Possibly not, and Spurs DO have more money than us.

I think there's a lot of bad journalism here, putting together scraps to make a story.

Lukaku himself has repeatedly talked about how happy he is at Everton and has also talked about his desire to play CL football and I think we can all agree that's likelier to happen with us than it is at Spurs.

I say ignore all the pap spouted by dodgy journos and god-awful chairmen and just get behind the team for what could be the best end-of-season run-in in years.

COYB!

Don't shoot the messenger but have just seen on the Everton rumours website there could be a swap deal involving Arteta and Coleman in the summer. This was not on the main Everton site so pinch of salt I think.

Wouldnt read anything into it m8.why swap one of the best full backs in the league for a 30 odd year old midfielder.

but coleman is essential for us in the coming years, and we can find a better player than Arteta if we qualify for europe next season

Why would anybody in their right mind do this deal, the boy is under a long term contract, playing well, and seems very content.

Jcw your right who in there right mind but you know how football works if the figures are right the player will walk( once a blue always a blue Rooney) Coleman on the other hand seems a genuine blue and has a great career, just thought I should share this as is a rumour site. coyb

This is a terrible deal for Everton and would be totally amazed if we even considered it
We have got some really good young midfielders coming through in the next season or 2 and if we need any more I would hope we would go for younger options

And the next newspaper story will say we will throw in Baines, Stones, Howard and a case of Chang beer for Arteta.

I read that article too and what made it even more farcical is that we're the ones proposing the deal and not the other way around.

I would rather go for a player we can eventually sign, no matter how good a loan signing is, there is no point if you have no chance to sign him permanently 'cause the team goes backwards when they leave

Everton tracking young Spanish Midfielder, Muchisimo Barquos from La Liga. A tenacious tackler he snaps at the heels of opponents (Peter Reid style) and is always sniffing out opportunities. Always prepared to chase after a ball, 'Mucho' is said to have a good temperament (would suit Martinez) however, although some Spanish newspapers stress the youngsters pedigree Everton might be put off from signing him as he was substituted after only 65 minutes on Saturday after playing what was described by one journalist as an, 'absolute howler'.
Marca Dot Com Quote:' Barquos was brought off, before he was sent off for a very messy and stomach turning foul near the corner flag.'
His Manage, Johhan Crufts stated that, 'Mucho' is an enthusiastic youngster who is learning to control his dribbling and is now prepared to hump the ball when he needs to. The foul? Well it's happened, it's gone, but he must learn you must not do that sort of thing on any football pitch. But I was never going to rub his nose into it, he is young, we will train that out of him.
Not sure if Everton should take the lead on acquiring this one in the summer but with Barca apparently sniffing around him who knows. Any thoughts guys?
