Really rate Surgudson, but would not want to see him arrive at the expense of losing Barkley. Barkley is starting to show some class, and like many top end players he is creating time on the ball and drawing in the opposition which is creating space elsewhere.
An attacking front three of Rom, Barkley and Rooney, would be fab; Bolaise on one side and another on the other? Would make me very happy and other defences less so.
Hopefully Rom can be persuaded?

Hi Ed latest news on the new stadium site saying we have purchased land from Peel Holdings, have you heard anything yet mate the wheels seem to be in motion, bring it on we have waited for this moment for so long, onwards and upwards we go, GuernseyBlue.

{Ed002's Note - As I explained the other day, it will need a planning application, consultation, planning permission etc. before work can even begin - I suspect it is still some way off - 2020/21 perhaps?}

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2017 13:20:42
Do you mean to be built or to start building ed.

{Ed002's Note - Once the application is made I would expect it to be three years before it is ready to use - if the application goes in soon then that should hit 20/21.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2017 13:39:35
Quite right ed but we don't know what work has been done behind the scenes. Plans and planning permission etc maybe done and dusted based on us buying this land. May all have been done on the quiet. (we hope)

{Ed002's Note - No that is not how it works. Planning permission is based on a public processes where the plans need to be reviewed, there needs to be consultation with all concerned parties, objections need to be addressed etc. before permission is granted. None of that has happened.}

So we are looking 3/ 4 years? D.

Sorry clicked too early. Do other countries have to go through all this beauracracy?

{Ed002's Note - Of course.}

We can but wait. Looking forward to seeing plans and designs. Could be the massive boost the club and that area of the city needs.

Be interesting to watch Ross return to the International stage against Germany tonight. oh wait he isn't starting as apparently Jake Livermore is a better option, same old England, different manager same old shite team selections, form players should be starting.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Mar 2017 21:46:36
Exactly bluegray. Jake Livermore, what's the point? He wouldn't get a kick in a stampede.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2017 21:41:31
The form players are starting bluegray. Hart is on and he's let in 15 goals in his last few matches. Now that's good form.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2017 22:46:12
He does not see Ross at a cm . He would have to fight it out in them number 10s pos . So Lallana Alli sterling Barkley is he going to play ahead of them 3 . England look a balance team tonight to the subs come on.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2017 01:58:20
Ok, but, if your right, why take him? He's in the form of his life, if that's not good enough to get a starting roll, then it's Southgates loss, mind you, whoever gave mr potato head the England managers job, never told him he was only joking.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2017 06:16:27
Thing is Matip, Ross can play as a deeper lying midfielder and has done before and it would still have been a balanced midfield.
It doesn't hide the fact that you are not selected on form.
If you intend to win a football match you select your best available players and especially when the team had some little time to prepare, you get your first 11 on from the off so they have time to gel and then mess about second half, the caps at international level are given away now not earned.

{Ed025's Note - your right gray...jake livermore??....JAKE BLOODY LIVERMORE!!!! im all for giving players a chance in a friendly but...JAKE LIVERMORE??? come on gareth you have lost all credibility with this one..

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2017 08:14:09
To be fair to Jake Livermore Ed and gray, he is pretty good at. well maybe he is ok at. actually I remember one game where he. no I am sure that once he. forget it, I am with you guys. Jake who?

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2017 13:54:39
Would imagine he was being kept back for the qualifier and I for one am delighted if he only plays one out of the two games.

Re Southgate, I personally don't think it was a bad appointment. No 'big name' manager would want the job because it's a lose-lose with the English press, plus he seems a lot more open-minded than his predecessors, e. g. 3 at the back, giving Keane and Livermore a go etc. Nobody will agree with all the decisions he makes, but at least he's experimenting a bit. The telling decisions will come when Henderson, Rooney, Kane etc are fit - will he revert to the same old?

Cant be going into next season with williams as a first choice centre back, not good enough. Jags is better and sadly he needs replacing.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Mar 2017 14:03:57
I can't see a future team without Davies either.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Mar 2017 15:02:43
Williams partners either Jags or Mori. Our winning runs have all had Williams in the team. I agree that at times he looks slow, but look at the stats of wins and clean sheets when he plays. Koeman sees someting and although Jags and Mori are in and out the team. Williams is a first pick. I would rather go with Koeman's choice than yours guys. no disrespect meant. but I think he has more knowledge.

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Mar 2017 15:25:20
The only reason we've kept clean sheets is robles its got nothing to do with williams. I sit in the lower gladys week in week out an williams is awful, how many times the opposition gets past him is ridiculous, he's to slow an to clumsy.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Mar 2017 16:38:39
Sorry Bluetooth, I am with Koeman. I trust him more than you whatever you say mate. And I have to say something must be right. last 10 games = 7 wins and 2 draws. You don't do that because of a keeper alone. I believe that Williams is strong and a proven leader. An organiser. He did it at Swansea who are missing him dreadfully and Jags looked awful last season and is clearly not an organiser of defences. I played for many years myself and the successful teams all had an organiser on the pitch. A Peter Reid, a Roy Keane, a John Terry. some teams have more than one organiser and they are generally successful. But Mori and Jags are not in this bracket in my view. and in Koeman's from what I have seen of the defences he has picked.

Agree0 4Disagree

22 Mar 2017 19:59:12
Your still not listening to what im saying are you. My post was about NEXT SEASON. Your saying your not going to buy another defender to replace williams next season then your living on a different planet. you can be a leader an a organiser all you want but if your no longer good enough what's the point, yes jags might not be an organiser but he's a far better player than williams.

How can you say he did it at swansea when they had been battling relegation for years. He had a good euros that's it, he played at swansea for years through his PEAK an i don't remember any of the top clubs makin any sort of offers for him. I don't care if you played for many years we all have that's irrelevant. an by saying all teams had an organiser in reid terry an keane is ridiculous cos they were world class, williams is not. Again incase you somehow fail to notice, im talking about next season.

Agree2 1Disagree

22 Mar 2017 22:10:26
Bluetooth, ok you are talking about next season. I get that point. But I never said we should not buy another player? I am not sure where you got that from? All I was saying was that Koeman picks Williams and A N Other or plays a back 3.

He has not started with Jags and Mori alone as far as I am aware. But he has played Williams and Jags. He has also played Williams and Mori. Of course I agree with you that both Jags and Williams are on borrowed time.

Your argument that Swansea battled relegation for years is not quite 100% right too. They were one place below us 2016 in 12th. They were 8th 2015 and we were 11th. They were 12th 2014 when we got 5th.

So not exactly battling relegation with Williamsin the team. But I agree that this season they are battling relegation without him. My point about leaders is that you don't have to be a world class player.

You have to have a good head and be an organiser. But hey, let's not fall out. I actually get your point about next season. I just don't agree that Williams is as bad as you say. and our results sort of prove my case.

We are top of the table for 2017 with 7 wins out of our last 10 games which is a lot better than we have been for some years and to say this is all because of Robles does not fit in with me.

Agree2 2Disagree

21 Mar 2017 10:39:23
Happy birthday to the gaffer. Let's hope you have a few more at our great club.

I think all these stories linking Barkley with the spuds are nonsense. I don't think he could play in the same side as alli.
It would be like the whole Gerrard and lampard situation.
Besides I would hate to see him leave us now he has worked hard and looks fitter and stronger in order to develop as a footballer.
If he continues this development, he could actually fulfil the potential we all know he has.

Agree2 1Disagree

21 Mar 2017 10:55:30
He was criticised for his decision making and time spent dwelling on the ball. In the last 10 games or so, Koeman has sorted this out with him. He is twice the player of last season and it is nocoincidence that he has been recalled to the England squad. We need to let him know he is a top player and that Everton want top players in order to achieve the same champions league ambitions that he has himself. We are close to achieving that now. He should be offered a very lucrative contract because to replace him would cost us an awful lot more. Added to which, there are not many players who could replace him.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Mar 2017 15:48:13
Degsy what a point that is mate. I agree completely give Barkley the contract as no matter what we pay him. We will have to come up with a few of around 40million and the same wages we are going to offer him to replace him.

Also the kid is a scouser a home grown English. That sort of player becomes vital when meeting the requirements for europe.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2017 19:27:00
Have we put an offer on the table yet? I would be surprised if there has been no initial talks. I think tie him down to a lucrative deal.
Bit more work from Koeman and perhaps a future captain!
