So the Managers Association are 'very disturbed' at the way Moyes was sacked and will investigate it. Jolly good gentlemen and while you do that try investigating how he was appointed in the first place.
Don't let anyone hold their breath on that one!

Toure
Hazzard
Lukaku
Sturridge

You can't really think Lukaku has been a better player than Luis Suarez, Sunny.

Lets be honest, Suarez has been head and shoulders above everyone in the league this season. He has been on a different planet to the rest.

I agree with the other 10 though.

Got a feeling Newcastle could do us a favour at the weekend, surely they can't keep loosing. I'm praying for us to be in champions league were we belong.

SunnyRuss


Too many clubs and their fans think they "belong" in certain positions - I hope we're not like those deluded ones.
There are loads of clubs that - based on money spent, size of fanbase, history and tradition, etc. - should still be successful, but have failed and are now just also-rans or faded giants.
It's great to be ambitious - and RM is showing that we can deliver - but you earn success by properly running the football club and playing winning football.

Cahills become a household name across America. And who among us would begrudge the success of Andy Van Der Meyde and the one and only Dan Gosling. Efc wasnt the same with out those 2.

A bit of a blow not to Kevin and Gareth availble for the upcoming Man C match? I wonder what RM has in mind? Who is going to fit Gareths "Mr Consistency" boots for this cracker of an upcoming match? Anyone with thoughts? Of course, I'm not forgetting the all important Southampton game where we will not have Kevin but options are availble for this one. May I just ask. Dare we think that 78 points is available? What a finish, what a season if that happens. It's already a rare season and listening to my Manc colleagues willow on about their troubles makes me only to think ~ thank heavens we have the RM!

ED I dunno about you but I have noticed a real positivity around transfers now back when we had the ginger gollum we where worried about whether a player would fit or if he was right for us but now under bobby everybody is like well if he's good enough for bobby he is good enough for me.

Right can anybody shed any light on why we have not been snapped up by an big investor, or now we are knocking on the top four door is it all about to change? any views pls.

lancerboy


Kenwright doesn't want to sell. I can't go in to how I know this as the last time I did that I was threatened with legal action from the parties mentioned, ( not to be sued as my info was accurate but for giving too much info on him and his families where abouts) bottom line there is no buyer because there is not a seller

Svenny


I think it is due to the fact the right buyer has not came along yet.Bill has got to sell at some point as he can not compete with all the Money men in the league which he openly admitted, we need investment badly especially if this new Stadium is going to be built it is the only way forward in the long run at the moment Martinez can work his magic but at some point the club will have to seriously back him financially if we are to compete for Cl football, as you all can see it's getting harder and harder every year to get into the top 4 the points tally is getting higher every year I believe he will sell but only to the right people.

Stef the blue


23 Apr 2014 07:59:35
there must be new investment, as I stated a few days ago Blues, Baines was convinced to stay, apparently turning down big offers for Barkley, new stadium on the horizon and a few bob to spend in the summer, I know most of it was from previous sales but it looks to me like there is investment from somewhere, maybe announce something at the end of the season.

This is just what I think by the way

Murphman


Svenny your right mate for the past few years people have been saying we are for sale even bill kenwright says its for sale but I have said just because he says we are for sale don't mean we are I think if we was for sale we would of been snapped up by now look at fullham sold in a matter of two months Aston villa will be taken over within three months by two billionaires we have bin in and around the top seven for the last five years so I really believe if we were for sale it would of happened way before now

"If anyone wanted to leave Everton, they'd be the poorer for it. Most people that have left here, it's not tended to work out for them." David Moyes, April 2010

Let's leave the Moyes chat now blues, non of our business and the man said it himself 4 years ago.

Well said Svenny, let sleeping dogs lie. The man's history, both at GP and OT. He had his chance and blew it and it was all his own choice.

Mirrallas out until the end of the season.

Ed, what would you think of going for Hernandez. I reckon we could get him cheap ( somewhere between 6-10m) he is still a good striker it's just Moyes had no faith in him. A fresh start is what he needs. I also think going for Batshuayi would be another option with a loan signing in Atsu with one more midfielder another replacement for Osman who is getting on now. Also get one more for defends to replace Dustin. What are the status of our upcoming talent. If we make champions league I think our young talent are not up to the CL level so someone with CL experience would be essential.

COYB

emeraldblue

{Ed025's Note - im not a massive hernandez fan EB, good coming off the bench, but poor when he starts, and we have 4 very good CD,s mate, and duffy as a stand in, so i think other positions will be filled first..


Lol bless ya, u think u could get him cheap, why exactly? Hernandez when and if sold will be out of your price range! And no we will not be loaning him ;-)

Chris the REDman

{Ed025's Note - personally CTR i dont want him, good man to bring off a bench, but as a starter..nah..if he cant get in to your mediocre side, how the hell will he get into ours!..so thanks but no thanks mate..


Well said ed lol

Cobyone


Think we should go in with a 2 mill bid and when it gets rejected bobby can come out and criticise Manchester United for holding his career back lol

dentielad

{Ed025's Note - good thinking dentie..


Chris think you will find there will be a big clear out at your mid table club soon so a lot of your players will be off and looking at what i've watched this season the championship would turn there noses up pal.

lancerboy


I would not want Hernandez. He has been contempt to sit on Utd's bench for the past 5 years or so instead of moving to another club and progressing as a player. When times are tough, he's not the type of player you can look towards to pick up the mantle and carry the team. In my opinion, he doesn't have the correct characteristics to be an Everton player. Also, Ed raised a very valid point; he would never get a game ahead of Naismith, Lukaku etc.

22 Apr 2014 14:15:14
Not a rumour as such just my thoughts on good transfers for the summer. Our squad will need beefing up considerably if we are to maintain our league performances next season. We're in the best financial position we have been for a while + new Prem money + Money saved by loaning, but I still don't feel chucking £25+mil at 1 player would be the Ideal solution. I might be wrong?

What do you think of my ideal selections:

FREE's
Mame Diouf - Hannover - Wages should be fine and looking a very good player now
Jack Colback - Good backup / replacement for barry
Gareth Barry - Wages could be a problem but he seems to fit the bill
Phil Bardsley - cover for coleman - leader

Loans
Gezza Dela - One more year if possible, loved the guy at times this season and we need more cover in those areas
Thorgan Hazard - Having a great season in Belgium, possible loan to buy option

Buys
Josip Drmic - £8mil - Looks quality great age for martinez to teach the football masterclass
Michy Batshuayi - £8mil - As Above
Bolasie - 5m? I think this guy could become a top premier league player. His pace and control are frightening.

Outs
Pienaar - Not sure what's happened but he's on big wages for some1 who is never in the squad
Lukaku - Shame but I've based this list on him not coming

I'll probably get smashed for some of these but we will need at least another 7 players, that's 9 including those two outgoing players

Only one of those players is over 30 and many are under 25.

Oviedo will be like a new signing as well.

I am really excited about the future as I'm sure we all are.

Go back to your own page red pretty sad comments to be fair

Cobyone


If we going to stuggle god knows where you lot will end up. You lot say we going to sign this and that as if its your divine right to get who you want.your as appealing as moysie in a beauty pagent.:)

dentielad


I don't understand why people keep picking Coalback even if he is free, he struggles to get into a poor Sunderland team so why we would want him even as back up poor player, Ki maybe?

dero


I think T, Browning will be back up to Coleman next season. Matinez says he has been impressed by him and thinks he is ready to come into the squad.

dero


Obviously I understand everything is a matter of opinion, but I personally think that Colback is worth a punt. No, he's not going to set the world alight but he would make a great addition to the squad as a free player. He is versatile and would be fine to play 15-20 games a season, against lower PL teams after travelling around Europe.

Barry is a must, providing his wage demands aren't ridiculous. I think that Lukaku should be our number one priority. But failing getting him I'm not sold on Batshuayi. I think that 8 mil is a lot of money to risk on a player unproven in the PL. Arsenal and Spurs can afford to waste money on a gamble, we unfortunately do not have that luxury.

Agree with the original posters loan ideas, would be great if we can get either or both of those, not sure I'd bother with Bardsley, would rather bring a youngster through. Don't rate Bolasie, had a good game against us though, and any player with pace will always cause trouble I suppose.

Wouldn't write Pienaar off just yet, I agree his wages are slightly high but I think he's useful cover and he's only looking a bit stale next to the 3 far quicker wingers we have. A move behind the striker as cover for Barkley may suit him?!

Depending on the fitness/performance of Distin and Jags I'd be tempted to just promote Tyias Browning as cover for both CB and RB (as Bobby said he is one for next season).

My major priorities would be a young pacy winger, even if it's on loan, 2 defensive mid and I would spend most money on a striker and get a back up on loan. I really hope Roberto pulls a rabbit out of the hat and signs an unknown who turns out to be class, but either way I trust him. COYB

Blue Tommy


I agree with the free deals, maybe leaving out Bardsley but would be decent cover. I would also take Lescott on a free.

I would take deulefou again. We could do with another winger, possibly Ince. I would love Griezeman but want to stay realistic.

I would like M'Vila also and maybe Rodwell on loan with view to make permenant.

I would like Lukaku, but he gets lost sometimes and his ball control needs improving. I would want to sign Bony and Remy as an alternative.
But it is hard without knowing if we will be aprticipating in the CL next season.

I would like to firstly say that I will never ever as an Everton fan/supporter never have bagged David Moyes. My reason is simple. He got our club to a place of stability. We played European Football. We got classy players, we got team unity and we enjoyed our run with Moyes. I was sad to see him go but always thought he could not get us any further. Unfortunately when he went to Man U he knew the problems he had and of course tried to poach Baines and co. Now they all refused except for Fellaini( get to him in a moment). Martinez did the same with Wigan when he came to Everton. Alcaraz, McCartney and Kone. So I don't blame him for having a crack. Now to Fellaini and his old man. Fellaini went from a loved player at Everton to a nothing at Man United. He and his old man held Everton to ransom and wanted out. As far as I am concerned Fellaini has gotten everything he deserves and more. He must be thinking to himself WHY!. The one good news about Moyes being sacked is they will leave the Everton Players alone.

Aussie Toffee


Good post Aussie, I am with you I don't hold any particular grudge against Moyes I thought he was a great EFC manager and always did what he thought was best for the club. I am greatful for what he acheved but agree he had probably taken us as far as he could. Unfortunately the way he left could have been handled a lot better. He was always going to try to get what he thought were our best players as any manager would do. He also asked some of his staff to go with him and they did, but we don't here any moaning about that, this may be due to the fact that a lot of us did not really rate some of the people to go. Taking his backroom staff with him was IMO his biggest mistake. As for Fellani I think we did well out of the deal more so than he ever will. let's also not forget that DM got the best out of Fellani and if it was not for that we would not have got anywhere near £27m reported fee. I honestly don't think Robbie would have been able to improve him as a defensive centre mid so I think we got the better deal. IMO although we did not get any compensation for Moyes him buying Fellani more than makes up for that. The sad thing about (well IMO) is that Moyes never really got a decent crack at his dream job. The good thing for us is that Robbie had a great foundation on which to build and so far he is doing a good job improving the team. let's hope the board back him in the summer. COYB

sa90


Yeah mate but don't forget that Alcaraz was out of contract, we paid the asking price of 6 mill in Kone's contract and gave Wigan a fair offer of 13 mill for McCartney. That's hardly what I call derisory - unlike the bids that came in throughout last summer for Baines and Fellaini. Plus when did you hear of Bobby suggesting that Wigan were holding McCarthy's career back despite the fact that he started the season in the Championship?
What goes round, comes round. I think Leighton Baines must be the most relieved player this afternoon. Pity the same can't be said of the one with the big barnet, who succumbed to temptation and took the poisoned challice which is Old Trafford.
Seamus, I hope you read this and take note.

Daveyboy Blue


Moyes was always going to man u.he let his contract run out and we got nothing in coppo for him. the grass is not always green on the other side.can see him ending up at newcastle.

richie huyton


I think newcastle would be a good place for him. Thy are a good team with some good players but are far too inconsistant, and well Moyes is Mr. Stability.

I think in the summer Bobby needs to address the shortage of goals in midfield, Cleverly has been linked with us this morning hope it's a joke! Would like to see 2 attack minded midfielders and a striker if the funds are available.

SunnyRuss


However poorly a player is regarded by a sizeable group of fans, I'll support anyone that Roberto Martinez considers is good enough to bring into our squad.
I'll cheer on everyone that is given the honour and privilege of wearing the royal blue shirt and represents our club on the field of play.
So far, in my humble opinion, RM's transfer dealings - both in and out - at Everton have been pretty good. Long may he continue to strengthen our squad and be able to select teams containing quality players that are totally committed to our club and can deliver expansive, effective, entertaining - and winning - football.

Swan


You hope buying Clevs is a joke. Take that back Sunny. Clevs is the metronome, one of only a few players in world football who could go into any team and look world class.

Zidane named him as the best player he has ever seen.

Xavi said he wished he could dictate a game as good as Clevs.

Iniesta said his one regret was not getting to play alongside Clevs.

They can't all be wrong can they?

The Real Mike


I am not Cleverly's biggest fan but Martinez know's the lad better than any of us.His poor form at united could of been down to a lack of confidence.Similar to Barkleys form under Moyes.Some managers can get the best out of players so I will have to trust Roberto on this one.I'd rather he spent his money elsewhere though!.

To me cleverley is like jordon henderson and the red s. are know saying he is vital to there team. any thoughts on this.

Ed, how much would Saints look for if they sold Lallana? Also, is there even a slim chance of Everton signing him in the Summer? What a player he is, would be a perfect replacement for Pienaar in my eyes.

BitterBlue

{Ed025's Note - hes a great player BB, but i cant see us getting him mate, there are a lot of far richer clubs after him, but i think he will stay at southampton myself, if he were to leave, i would expect a fee of at least £30m would be needed..

If you had to pick which 6 players to join Everton Fc next season which off the following 6 would you pick from below.

Daryl Janmaat
Davide Astori
Niklas Moisander
Frederik Sörensen
Antoine Griezmann
Mario Suarez
Balazs Dzsudzsak
Michy Batshuayi
Alexandre Lacazette
Romelu Lukaku
Bruno Martins Indi
Fernando
Gareth Barry
Gerard Deulofeu
Lacina Traoré

sealand2011


I would go for:

Lukaku (need a striker)
Griezmann (quality winger)
Dzsudzsak (another good winger)
Batshuayi/Lacazette (attacking options)
Astori/Indi (defensive options)
Barry/Fernando (CDM options)

Given about 9 players there but hey.

ToffeeTony


Lukaku batshauyi Barry Fernando deulofeu indi think diame from west ham would b good cheap buy to

What do the media have against us? Non stop, heres 3 facts, did you know we are only doing well because of moyes' signings? Martinez hasn't improved stones, coleman or howard at all, without moyes' signings, without his foundations we would be nowhere near 5th, well do they expect martinez to sell the whole squad and buy all his own players? If the talent is there, use it, no one is moaning about rodgers using suarez (signed by worzel gummidge) or pellegrini using aguero and toure (signed by the italian version of a disney prince), its because its everton, and everyone hates everton, fact 2, did you know if you took our loan players away we would be 8th! Well done, they speak as though we would never have got anyone other than our loans, oh yeah, there is a contract which says we could only sign gaz, steppy and the predator, no one else, again, all against everton, fact 3, we should have no points, did you know we havnt played well all season? Having watched motd tonight (on last again, if we would of been beaten 2-0 we would of been on first, again, against puny little everton) and they gave us no credit, it was all about how bad utd were, same when we beat arsenal, whenever we have a good result its like the opposition score own goals and let us win, we never are better than anyone, just they are so bad, yes Manchester United have slipped massively but don't we deserve a couple of words? 'take nothing away from everton they were very good' but nope it was gifted to us, we did nothing, coleman getting past people? They let him, going to the emirates and battering arsenal in the league? Yeah thry gave us all that possession, they purposely missed their tackles and they gifted captain america that late goal, it is scripted, every season the other 19 teams get together and say 'hey let's laugh and gift everton a couple of wins and draws so we can laugh at their fans thinking it is real!' they laugh at our expense, we do, nothing, are players are, nothing, rant over, I just think its sad yet apathetic but mostly just pathetic that the media don't want puny little everton invading their precious top four so they take every opportunity to slate us and sell our manager and players at any chance, its sad yet laughable but puts no pressure on everton so it has its positives I suppose

Swan

{Ed025's Note - if we start believing all the rubbish that is printed about us, and all the tittle tattle from washed up so called pundits swan..then its time to pack in mate..


Can't disagree with any of that swan. They way they go on about our loan signings, its as if we only play with them on the pitch. Forget yhe keeper and back 4.forget ross, macca, osman, mirallas and naisy. nope we play a 1-1-1 formation. Barry midfield, doofy loofy on wing and the beast up front

Hi all, I haven't given up yet, BUT, if we do fail to get past Arsenal into 4th and end up in the Europa league. Don't you all think we would have 2 good chances to make champions league the following year. Personally, I wouldn't be too upset. let's get the bigger squad used to the travelling, ways of playing away in Europe, etc and try to win it and get into the champions league that way next season. I think it will be a much more interesting competition with that great prize at the end. As well as being a great introduction into European football for our squad. What do you think?

steverton


I would rather finish 5th and win the europa league next year than finish 4th this year

Quinny


I'd rather finish 4th and get an extra 30mil than finish 5th and hope to win that awful Europa and get buttons for doing it

mikedeblue


I'm not saying I would prefer it, I just don't get all the doom and gloom about getting into a competition which has a place in the champions league as a prize.

steverton


The doom and gloom is because our squad is too small as it is, so we need the money the champs league brings otherwise we will be filling the squad with numbers rather than players that would improve us, this shouldn't even be a debate because to win the Europa is harder than us winning 3 games and hoping arsenal slip up in 1

Ed0025,

You boys have gone to far now, if you've got Moyes the sack a lot of people are going to be very unhappy.

Couldn't you have at least let them score or have a shot at goal. Jeez. ;-)

One of our guys recently described Rooney as a jacket potato with a number 10 on it's back and he sure lived up to it.

Jenny Taylor

{Ed025's Note - yes jenny..we own up..but at least they were the better team (moyes said so) , love the jacket potato shout..


21 Apr 2014 18:59:06
It must be going to happen and worse than that they've got Ian Holloway lined up as a replacement.:-(

C'mon jenny.rooney had a shot at goal at the end of the game but howard saved it.how many chances do we give em lol

One thing is sure: David Moyes did take us as far as HE could - with the emphasis on 'he'. Roberto Martinez is showing that our club has not yet got as far as IT can. All it really needs is a manager with a positive approach.
DM would bemoan lack of resources and expect us to be outside the leading league positions before we started and be happy to 'get out alive' from some matches and move out our best players for 'the good of their careers'.
RM is refreshingly positive about the players and the club (note how he speaks about 'we' and 'us' and 'our club' - DM always used to refer to us in the third person as 'Everton' when he was our manager).
RM has been creative in using the limited financial resources for transfers and loans.
RM encourages an expansive, attacking, ball-possession approach and gives younger plays a genuine chance and is brilliant with the media. He can also adapt to more a direct approach (like yesterday against ManUtd) and can get players to work in different tactical formations (like Lukaku against Arsenal). A mere handful of poor performances and a few bad results this season is testament to the work in progress moving along nicely. [ I've clearly chilled out since the Crystal Palace match ;-) ]
Let's hope he'll take us to greater success before he's lured to a genuinely big club - like Barcelona - and let's enjoy the football he's got us playing.
He's the right one, he's the bright one, he's Martinez.

Can't see Barca or any other huge club coming in for Bobby just yet. Yes he's had a great first season but he's relatively untested and unproven at the moment. Give him a few seasons to show what a great manager he is and then the euro giants will come knocking; but by then we'll be up there with them and Bobby will stay.

Those who think we are destined for 5th remember it's not only Arsenal who we are after. Never forget what Man City are. A team full of mercenaries who couldn't give a crap about the shirt. Their seasons done they won't get the Title and that squad will now be praying to get through the season so they can get to the World Cup where they can have a few good mins and add a few zeros to their sponsorship deals. We can do them at Goodison, they just have to play like they did against Sunderland in one of their other games and they will have a serious fight on their hands. Twists and turns ahead we are still in it. Believe. COYB

Poor old Davey, didn't even last a season. And how poetic he gets the boot after his team gets a kicking at Goodison. I bet even BK can't help a wry smile.

Also, I wonder how BigWig is feeling now, another one who thought he was destined for bigger and better thing only to discover he wasn't a good as he thought. The only friend in Manchester he had was Moyes

So Mr Moyes, what will you do now you have been exposed as a classless, technically inept manager, Norwich will be looking for a new manager to get them out of the Championship. I suggest you get your CV in there quick!

Martin-EFC


If Neil Lennon leaves Celtic to try managing in the English Premier League (as has been rumoured - perhaps Norwich City), then there must be a chance that David Moyes would become the manager at Celtic.

Davey Moyes sacked at Man U. It's the end of an error. Sorry, era.

I reckon Moyes will become the next Newcastle manager when Pardew gets the boot at the end of the season.

A great performance yesterday that gave up more lines for Manchester United demise than the excellance of EFC's play. Appalling jounalism - if I was Capo de Capo I would ban all of them from Goodison. Particularly that lot from the daily mail who support RM transferring to Utd. God help us.

Biggest laugh yesterday was in Goodison Road. There was loads of people lining it to await the Utd Coach, all baying for blood. I managed to get my way through the crowd to where my turnstile is towards the Church and decided to watch and see what happens when it arrived. Then there came an announcement over the Tannoy, "Would people in Goodison Road please for your safety on Police advice move off the road to the sides as the Away Coach is due shortly". As soon as he finished saying that; what came round the corner from Gwladys Street but a 'Mr Whippy' Ice Cream Van. Goodison Road erupted in cheers and laughter. You had to be there to believe it, it was almost choreographed and staged.

Can't believe the Reaper got thrown out of Goodison yesterday. Thought it was hilarious, just like Moyes.

did anyone see the pictures of the grim reaper taunting moyse in the ground, thought he was class, he ended up getting ejected from ground.funny all the same

Sad really, no sense of humour these days. wouldn't have happened years ago, who can forget the Clown for Grobbelar and the Handbag for Westie. They were laughed at and accepted, the Grim Reaper was priceless humour, shame he was ejected.

{Ed025's Note - its a shame when the fun is taken out of the game howie..

As a relative newcomer, if Everton takes 4th place, what is the qualification process to get to the Group stage in the CL? How many matches and opponents.

As a qualifier in July with no guarantee of CL the rest of the year (win to play), how many players would we sign? If we win I'm sure the Transfer period would be active later.

If we do not qualify, then the Transfer period would be less active I presume (a few players and Loans)

How much activity if we goes Europa this year?

My long winded open ended question-thought is that Europa participation may promise a deeper squad than a CL qualifier risk.

Then again win out and City and Arsenal tank and 3rd place makes everything I typified irrelevant.

New Blue in the U


It will go like this if we do get 4th we'll go for 3-4 of our 2nd or3rd choice players to strengthen our squad and if we do qualify we'll probably see one 10 million pound signing and invest the money later on.
