Everton Transfer Rumours


Use our rumours form to send us everton transfer rumours.

01 May 2019 22:25:32
Hi Ed do you know in any interest in Youcef atal and soumare from Ligue 1. Is there any interest in any of our players Lookman Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Atal no, but there is from elsewhere. Boubakary Soumare perhaps but how could Everton persuade him to give up Champions League for, well nothing really? There is interest in him from elsewhere as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 May 2019 05:39:59
Cheers Ed it’s going to be hard to persuade players to come without European football. And we don’t want to be giving them silly wages. Hopefully we have learnt that from the last managers. Hopefully brands has got
His plan all set ready for the summer.

{Ed002's Note - At best Boubakary Soumare would be one for the future for most PL sides so the expectation is that he will end up being sold if he is sold to the PL this summer. But it is indeed an up hill battle to get players to move when European football cannot be offered.}

02 May 2019 10:26:50
Hopefully we can offer them the pathway to be sold to a bigger club by giving them the chance to showcase themselves in the pl and get some profit and hopefully grow as a club from it.

{Ed002's Note - You are living in a fantasy world. Bigfger clubs are already interested in both players. Everton is not running a shop window - Soumare has only played a couple of games in the French league - and that is it.}

02 May 2019 16:47:57
Sorry Ed was referring to young talents rather than them two individuals.

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}

02 May 2019 19:21:00
Ed replies to your comment like your a piece of #### and you apologise to him or her, then in reply to your needless apology you simply get “ok”
Personally I’ll be telling ed2 to wind his neck No need to respond to anyone like that, how he continues to get away with it I’ll never know.
Not Everton related so I apol. actually no I don’t 👍.

{Ed002's Note - That is oK - I am not providing any further information to the Everton page so you won’t have the problem anymore.}

02 May 2019 21:05:57
Ed002 your opinion is always valued on these pages, your wealth of knowledge is second to none. Not everyone agrees with how you respond, but the amount of rubbish and stupid questions you have to put up with I’m not surprised how you respond sometimes. This is a banter and rumour site if people don’t like your responses they don’t need to bother on here.
It would be disappointing if one person whom I’ve never seen before on these pages denied the rest of us genuine fans your knowledge relating to rumours, transfers etc.

{Ed002's Note - If he is not a regular on these pages then we will leave it as it is. It means he will be a supported=r of another side. I will see if I can find out.}

03 May 2019 01:51:53
If youdon't like how the sites are run smeg, then don't come on the page. do us all a favour though and stop the hard case act. why are you fuming? cos ya season tickets just gone up from 99 to 150.

03 May 2019 10:54:28
If you click on the name he has posted some stuff over a period of time not just recently but not loads
At times I think some on here could dial their responses down to be a little less condescending but then I do like the banter and information
It’s tough at times but we don’t have to be like school kids squabbling in a playground, and let’s just hope in 6 years time our posts aren’t pulled up and used against us 😂.

03 May 2019 13:18:10
Ed I didn’t take any offence anyway your football is greater than ours and some of our questions will be fairy tale to you and you do a lot on these pages across all clubs in your own time so i think anyone to take a pop at you is out of order. For me I like reading all your posts I go on to other pages and read them to get a insight to how things are and all the other Ed’s too keep up your good work and don’t let people get to you.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - it has been suggested he is a Liverpool supporter.}

03 May 2019 18:13:23
Well you can ban him if they beat Newcastle on Saturday but if they lose can you keep his account live until Sunday please 😉.

06 May 2019 14:05:21
Don't know why you support ed02 the way he replies to some posts on here is rude to say the least that's probably why most start off by saying sorry for asking ed02 because they know what type of answer they will get . Is he really needed on this website i for one have learned nothing from ed02.

{Ed002's Note - Ok - I get the point, the regulars don’t want me to post anything either.}

07 May 2019 13:31:22
So skylark has gone off criticising silva and started on Ed002.
In my opinion we’ve learned nothing from skylark apart from he likes to whinge and complain, whereas Ed002 has. a wealth of football knowledge and contributes greatly to the site.
With the transfer window coming up I’d know who’s input on the site I’d want and that’s Ed002, regardless how he responds to some of the stupid and repetitive posts he has to deal with. He actually brings something to this site which us fans can appreciate.
Can’t imagine it’ll be long before skylark slating brands in the transfer window, like previous posts relating to who he has brought in, when the majority have actually finally shone.

07 May 2019 16:44:32
I don't see too much wrong with Ed02s replies in this thread. what's the issue?
Ed002 replied to Eddy and Eddy doesn't seem to have an issue with him. I'm not sure who you and Smeghead are trying to stick up for?

All the Eds bring something different to this forum and if you don't like one of the Eds replying to you then maybe direct your questions at a specific Ed.

Either way don't spoil it for the other posters on here who don't have an issue with Ed002.

30 Apr 2019 12:49:02
What do people think about our realistic chances to sign Zouma? IMO if we could only have one signing over the summer I would choose him. The defence has been great over the past couple of months and he seems to have a great partnership with MK. I think it would be a shame and a real problem for the team if he went. I know Mina could step in but I think it would take him some time to gel with the team in a way which Zouma has now.

Would he want the move? Would chelsea consider it with the transfer ban?

Also just seen that Tom Davies has signed a new contract which is really great news. I didn't know he was only 20, I thought he was much older. TBH I thought he might have been looking elsewhere to get some more game time, I hope he gets a lot more playing time next season. A real star for the future.

{Ed002's Note - Everton want to buy Kurt Zouma and if they were to make a good offer to Chelsea and the player were interested in the move then Chelsea would not stand in his way.}

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 17:12:02
Cheers Ed has been great this season for us formed a partnership with Keane what would be a good offer in Chelsea’s eyes thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - I would think something over £30M.}

30 Apr 2019 19:15:23
I'd be happy with that. If we bought him and then had Keane, mina, Zouma and Holgate. We wouldn't need to buy another CB for 4 or 5 years.

30 Apr 2019 21:04:48
I would be made up going into season with them 4 cbs.

30 Apr 2019 22:48:12
Love to see both Zouma and Gomez next season. Hopefully we can get some funds together with a few sales from unwanted players. Our wage bill should certainly be lower as we loose a few with contracts expiring.

01 May 2019 08:15:07
If we made Gomes and Zouma permanent and got in an out and out striker I’d be more than happy with that in the summer.

01 May 2019 10:27:43
£30 million would be a great price in today's market. Slot straight in and up n running. Fingers crossed for this one and gomes.

01 May 2019 22:10:43
I am surprised we haven't already agreed terms with Chelsea for zouma. Lots of teams but loan players they have during the season. Hopefully we get him. Big strong fast sensible defender.

{Ed025's Note - i imagine a lot will depend on the result of their appeal against their transfer embargo geoff..

02 May 2019 13:11:12
Geoff, the same could be said about Gomes. Clearly no future at Barcelona, if we want him and he wants to stay with us then surprised it’s not been done already, as you say other teams have signed loaning signings (Jimenez at wolves) .
Maybe just the sceltic in me but the fact we haven’t secured his services permanently suggests to me he’s off elsewhere.

02 May 2019 15:39:03
There are other factors that come into it GingerDan. some players/ clubs don't want to discuss mid season and would rather concentrate on playing/ planning.
I am sure we are in the box seat for Gomes but it could also be Barcelona looking to squeeze as much out of the deal.

29 Apr 2019 22:27:14
Hi Ed's, it may just be the start of the silly season early but is there a rumblings about interest in Lucas Ocampos as reported in some media, I have no idea how reliable the likes of calciomercato is in terms of rumours especially as they are Italian reporting on Everton interest in a French based player!
From what I see though he sounds versatile playing across the front 3 and can also play with both feet so could be the sort of young talent we would look at
Any whispers? 🤷🏻‍♂️.

{Ed002's Note - Marseille have offered Lucas Ocampos a new contract and there has been no approach to l'OM from Everton. His agent offered him to another English side in December without the permission of the player or his club and was duly castigated by Zubzaretta. And what would Everton do with yet another LW?}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 12:42:46
Thanks Ed I did think it seemed a little strange but then also read he can play across the front three, guess the silly season in the media is ramping up for the summer.

{Ed002's Note - He is a LW. In theory he can also play in goal, but any club looking to buy him would want him as a LW.}

29 Apr 2019 23:47:46
Just read an article regarding Welbeck and how he is the proven striker we've been searching for since Lukaku left.

Whilst I think the article went a bit overboard and seemed like it was written by his agent in a way lol.

I do think him on a free at 28 would be an excellent option if we can also get an additional striker and providing we can ship out the "dead wood"


Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 06:47:32
I like him but. He would want massive wages and is injury prone.

30 Apr 2019 08:15:26
Is Sturridge a better option?

30 Apr 2019 10:38:26
Both options are injury prone would rather if we wer going for experience for 1 or 2 years go get dzeko.

30 Apr 2019 11:30:54
Problem with Dzeko for me would be the transfer fee plus the wages and would be a tough ask with no European football
Sturridge and Welbeck do carry the risk of injury both could do a great job it kept fit, the medical department are probably swotting up on their injury history in preparation
we will have to see what direction Brands takes us.

{Ed025's Note - brands wont entertain any of them ST as they dont fit the brief, hes looking for dynamic young talent that have a sell on value mate..

30 Apr 2019 19:19:41
Don't worry about the European football thing Southern Toffee, I heard he was offered to west ham and the nearest they could get to European football would be to sneak up and peer through the windows at the Tottenham stadium.

01 May 2019 22:38:19
Thanks Ed. With regards the brief, I assume the “sell on” aspect is just as a possibility if say a stupid offer comes in not because we want to be buying in with the view of becoming a feeder club like Southampton and dismantling our squad each summer 😬.

27 Apr 2019 18:54:33
Telegraph saying Marco will be given the nessesary funds for the summer transfer window, let's hope we get a quality Striker in.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Apr 2019 19:24:04
After today's showing we need someone who can convert the chances we create, I like DCL but we need a finisher, it's going to be an interesting summer apparently Brands and Silva want a squad of 20 to work with meaning more outs than ins, looking forward to it. Will feel sorry for the Ed's when the season finishes and silly season starts.

{Ed025's Note - its the same every year lee, it will be name after name and a lot of guessing mate...god bless us all.. :)

27 Apr 2019 21:35:30
Looking forward to it mate.

27 Apr 2019 23:24:22
I agre lee 1878 would love someone like haller from frankfur realistically who do u think we could attract ed02.

{Ed002's Note - The issues will be the lack of European football and what impact does this have on DCL? The likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Michy Batshuayi and Che Adams are available and could be attracted - but all would expect to be starters.}

28 Apr 2019 10:14:28
Personally I would like to get a top striking coach in and over the summer and work with DCL he has everything just needs his finishing to improve, if we can get him scoring 15 next year am happy for him to be r no9 for many years and save to 50 odd mill on some random forward with a great record in Albania.

28 Apr 2019 10:27:29
Would take any of them and start them over DCL. He’s had plenty of starts to show us he can do it, unfortunately whilst his hold up play has been great the fact he’s our striker but can’t score on a regular basis worries me. Everyone saying give him time etc all well and good but this season has clearly highlighted we need an out and out striker. It may well come for DCL, but how much longer can we give him?
Personally think he needs someone playing off him, but then which midfielder would make way for that to happen?
Tricky time ahead for marcel and Marco.

{Ed025's Note - i think you are being a bit harsh on DCL there dan, he is a young guy who is improving all the time and yes he has flaws in his game but i think he has a great future in the game, sharpy was not that great when he started but look how he turned out, yes we need at least one other option up front and im sure that will be addressed in the summer but lets not write off DCL just yet mate..

28 Apr 2019 11:21:46
Ed025 not trying to be harsh regarding DCL would love it if he could be a 15-20 goal a season striker for us.
Everyone on here wants us to succeed and challenge the top 6 as well as going for a cup. However until we have a striker who can get us scoring we’re going to struggle.
We’ve got probably the best left back in the league who’s crossing is fantastic yet no one to get on the end of them. Sigurdsson has played superb this season and has shown his delivery is great but again no one to finish off the chances created. Richarlison and Bernard with great play and delivery into box but again no one to finish them off. Richarlison himself has done well scoring as many as he has but failed when played in the striker role. We’ve got a wealth of attacking threat but not that one final piece of the jigsaw to be converting these chances.
I think there’s something to be said for a natural goal scorer and I just don’t see that being DCL, he’s scored something like 11 in 70 premier league games.
If we want to be challenging we need to get a proven striker in.
Don’t throw DCL in the scrap heap but also don’t pin all our hopes on him being that 15-20 goal striker we want, some of our support of players this season has been atrocious, if we put expectations on DCL and it doesn’t happen the supporters will turn and it could ruin the young lad.

{Ed025's Note - i can see what your saying dan and agree with a lot of it, yes we do need a prolific striker and at the moment that is not DCL, but lets not throw the baby out with the bath water here he can still be a very important part of this squad, we all want the same things mate its just a different opinion of how we go about it dan..

28 Apr 2019 11:23:03
Thanks for info e02 much appreciated.

28 Apr 2019 12:17:00
I think are biggest problem is getting rid of so much deadwood, the price of the Walsh era will maybe take a another year to fully put right.

28 Apr 2019 13:06:28
Watched the Palace game again and I am proud of the team. They harassed the opposition when they had the ball, they were sharp when we had the ball, good movement of the players off the ball and generally got stuck in and yet another clean sheet. Obviously the only problem was finishing off the game. I am beginning to warm to Silva, he has got the team playing the type of football we can appreciate with the exception of games like the Fulham and Newcastle ones. Next year should be even better.

28 Apr 2019 13:21:15
As much as I dnt like the term dead wood I agree with u clouds I think we will see a massive improvement in tge squad come 2 more windows after brands can get some big earners off the books and get 2 or 3 quality additions.

28 Apr 2019 14:39:11
It will definitely take a few windows to shift the unwanted players.
I hope we get Europe this season (although doubtful now) as I see next season in the league a bit like this season (transition) .
Europe would give us that extra cash and the extra games to build the style and finalise the squad.
Silva would have to play some of the fringe players and maybe one or two might come good. Look at Schneiderlin, he in most of our eyes was finished 6 months ago. I don't know if I'd be happy if he went now.

28 Apr 2019 15:01:55
Schneiderlin is an anomaly, their is a footballer in there but too often he has gone missing, just wandering around doing very little, and then he has a few good starts. If we keep him he has to become more consistent and more influential. He is not a Gomes.

28 Apr 2019 17:57:26
Just listening to rumours and comments on here does everyone think Mitrovic, Batishuay etc are any better than DCL? As we don’t have European football to offer we need to go break the bank for top players like City did with Robinho etc to raise our profile in attracting other players and to get us into top 6. Even if they don’t care and are only there for the money so what if they do it on the pitch. Athletico I hear are fed up with Costa for me he’s the type of player who would go anywhere for the right money. Just my opinion.

28 Apr 2019 18:14:12
Also comment about bringing in a forward coach a top experienced striker would do more for DCL than a coach. DCL has improved massively and in 2-3 season if he continues will no doubt be our number 9 but that’s atleast 2 seasons away. Talk of Mitrovic etc for me is a waste and will hinder DCL and what’s he going to learn off a player arguably no better than him atleast DCL gives his all even on a bad day.

28 Apr 2019 20:36:19
Jaybo. We didn't have Europe last season but managed to bring in some quality additions.
What you are suggesting is what Walsh and Koeman did with no success.
Brands will find is some gems.

28 Apr 2019 22:09:37
Right, we have a good striker coach, zouma turning out to be the Man. My question/ statement, with a supposed superior squad we are on course to finish lower than Sam. Brilliant run, lb, lw, rw, sorted need backups. We need a Benitez, to progress.

29 Apr 2019 02:13:29
One of my Sheffield Utd mates commented on great potential of Calvert Lewin but said has the finishing of Devon Loch and that is his biggest hindrance.

Personally there is a player there, for me, we need to do like we did with Sharp, bring in a Gray type player who Calvert can learn from, whether that be Mitrovic, Dzecho or the like who knows, but not rocket science we need a centre forward.

29 Apr 2019 11:55:41
Billscrocodiletears - had me checking the calendar there mate. Thought was April 1st!
You are not actually suggesting that we are worse off than last season?
If you are mate then i have to ask when you last actually went to a game at GP?
The whole ethos of the team / culture has changed.
Last year we stumbled into 8th, based on tying not to lose.
This year, despite a dreadful run over Xmas we have already amassed more points than last year, we have just beaten 3 of the 'sky 6' at home in consec home games having beaten none of them for 2 years, we had 22 shots on Saturday in one away match - FatSam didn't have that in 10 away games!
Yes the squad still needs improvement, yes we have had a couple of off games but it takes time. Players are buying into Marcos culture now and anyone who actually GOES to the game can see and feel that around GP.

Marco is going nowhere.

29 Apr 2019 15:45:41
DCL was only 22 in March. How can anyone judge him yet? It says something that he is keeping Tosun out the team. Give him 2 or 3 years of quality coaching and see what we have then. As for another striker now? Well I think DCL is twice the player he was last season and so expect more improvement by next season.

29 Apr 2019 20:24:27
Benitez won't progress us.
I like him but after doing some digging during a conversation with a Newcastle fan. I think he plays the game with the media.

Looking at transfermarkt. He's spent 151 million in the 3 seasons he's been there, he finished 10th last season and they're 13th now and mathematically can't match last season. So after spending 50 million this season and after already spending 101 million are they improving?
Nope. The football played is dull.

So you can ask for Benitez all you want but I don't see what he would bring to improve us.

29 Apr 2019 22:35:00
Agree re improvements of DCL
He is not a goalscorer. Maybe he will learn but I don’t think we can wait 2 years to find out.
He suits certain games when we need to defend and then have a striker who can hold the ball up.
He doesn’t suit games where we need to break down a tight defence.

26 Apr 2019 16:32:44
Lots of reports from the press that we are interested in Tammy Abraham including Noel Whelan rabbiting in about how he’s too good for Everton 🤦🏻‍♂️
Not sure whether this rumour has any legs though, if the possible transfer ban will affect a move for Zouma it would surely also impact any move for Abraham.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2019 17:03:48
Who is Noel Whelan as for Tammy Abraham he never cut it with Swansea when they where in the premier league think we should be aiming at better players plus he be well overpriced.

{Ed025's Note - im with you david, decent young player at a lower level but not what we are looking for i hope mate..

26 Apr 2019 17:43:50
Seen a bit of Villa this year takes his chances but doesn't do much else. DCL Better option similar in age.

26 Apr 2019 18:25:24
Agree With you cookie mate dcl is a better option and scoring in the championship is totally different than being able score in the premier league. Just think we should be aiming at better options than Abrahams I am sure Marco and brands will pull out a name totally from left field with a few of r signings this sumner.

26 Apr 2019 21:40:45
He's found his level in the championship the same as Patrick Bamford, not quite good enough for Premier League but able to be prolific in the championship. We need to be looking for a centre forward who can add the goals we are lacking. DCL has been impressive lately with his workrate but hasn't added the goals to his game, maybe a decent preseason and he will be ready to add that to his game.

27 Apr 2019 00:36:30
Noel Whelan ex Leeds turned wannabe football know it all. 😂
I had to laugh at his comments about being too good for us, I prefer to keep DCL learning his trade as he gives it his all and then a more experienced striker bought in will see what Brands has unearthed over the summer.

27 Apr 2019 10:58:38
Will be expecting one of the top 6 to snap him up in the summer then.

28 Apr 2019 09:53:15
Hi Ed hope you good well about her season nearly over been a up and down season for us blues as per but last few weeks things looking up need few tweaks here and there Coleman been a good player for us but age not on his side think replacement is due few teams sniffing round Andra after a good season hope he stays rumours have it we after Tammy Abraham omg no where near good enough for us we had 22 shots against palace if we had a decent striker we would have had 4-5 goals same every year striker is needed but looking forward am quite optimistic think be few surprises next window few players shipped out and let me emphasis this few players coming in.

{Ed025's Note - it looks like thats the way we are going steven, i must say i have been very encouraged the way thing are progressing lately and think we are heading in the right direction, we do need a striker and to secure the services of zouma and gomes, for starters, i would also like gana to change his mind but i dont know if all of that will be possible, onwards and upwards though mate and im sure there will be a lot of ups and downs next season...after all this is everton.. :)

23 Apr 2019 22:49:42
Hi Ed, hope you are well mate. Following on from your update, I keep seeing links to Che Adams and Neres: is there any interest from us for these two players. Thankyou in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Neres is seen as an option but there is serious interest from elsewhere. I am not aware of any Everton interest in CA.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2019 20:09:13
Just had a quick look at the prizemoney for the Europa league this year - nothing to be sniffed at in my honest opinion as if you can get through the group stages and progress there are millions to be had - nothing compared to champions league but still a nice little pot of money to be had plus the possiability of winning a trophy and hopefully attract some better players to the club.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Apr 2019 20:52:38
Is there an update on what would need to happen for 7th place in the PL getting a Europa League slot? Would it be a play in game during the middle of preseason like before?

23 Apr 2019 21:54:32
Not sure what you mean new blue?
If city win the FA cup, 7th gets a Europa league place and that would be 2 qualifiers (I think) before the group games.

23 Apr 2019 22:03:30
I think we need to finish 7th and need City to win the cup but would need the Ed’s to clarify.

{Ed002's Note - No. Runners up no longer qualify for Europa. Finishing 7th will do.}

23 Apr 2019 22:43:19
City must win FA Cup or else Watford and the top 6 get European slots. If we finish 7th and City win, we would get into the second qualifying round of Europa League. From there, we'd need to win 3 2-legged matches to make it to the group stage.

23 Apr 2019 22:53:14
Happy to finish 8th as not sure we have the squad to deal with Europe, look what happened last time.
Even if we have a good tranfare window we will still be a bit light I think.

23 Apr 2019 23:33:58
Well that reply just baffles me DC.
You have put so much emphasis on Silva doing better than Allardyce did last season. Are you Ok with him equalling his 8th and no better?
You also lambasted Silva because he doesn't blood the youth but a Europa league campaign would no doubt require some of our younger players to play.

I cannot believe anyone would rather us finish 8th than 7th. What it brings is far more rewarding for our club.
More money, attracting better players, more games for us fans to watch. It's the natural progression in the league.
Unless we are you going to finish in the top 4 next year then I'd rather us be in Europe and I would hope every other fan thinks the same.

23 Apr 2019 23:45:24
So what happens if city win the FA cup and the premier league
Spurs finish third and win the champions league
And say Arsenal finish fourth and win the europa league
Would that mean more European spots?

23 Apr 2019 23:52:42
Wow, that's a terrible way to look at things. We need to aspire to play and win in Europe every season, not look at past failures and assume they will repeat. And, it's not like we got relegated last time; we finished mid-table, just like all the other recent years. This team and fanbase need to dream bigger. We have the pocketbooks to compete and hopefully have some guys in place now to properly yield that. If you don't want to win in Europe, what do you want? 8th place every year? That's incredible.

24 Apr 2019 14:37:31
SA. The way i understand it, and one of the Eds may be able to correct me if I've got it wrong.
We have our full quota of Champs league places (4) if Spurs win it, we still only get our quota (4) . The winner always gets a place so if Spurs weren't in the top 4 they would take the place of the 4th placed team.
4th would then get a europa slot.
Europa is the same (2) plus (1) for winning the FA CUP. If a team wins the FA CUP that already has a place then the plus (1) goes to the 7th best team.

i think that is correct, although it hasn't always been that way i don't think.

{Ed001's Note - the maximum is 5, if the winner of the CL finishes outside of the top 4.}

so what would happen if arsenal or chelsea win europa as well.

24 Apr 2019 18:20:55
I heard it could be 5, lot of ifs and buts though.

24 Apr 2019 19:26:37
Smitt is correct. If the winner finishes outside the top 4 the 4th place team will go into europa league. This rule was made when Everton came fourth and Liverpool were given a place despite finishing behind Everton. Then the laws were changed to ensure no repeat.

But a fifth spot can be gained only if a team outside the top 4 wins the europa league therefore winning a place in the champions league.

To add on to what others have already said, in no scenario do more than 7 get into Europe. In the case that 5 go to UCL, only 2 would get into Europa.

The strangest scenario is if (i) Spurs win CL but finish outside the top 4 in the league, and (ii) Chelsea or Arsenal win Europa but finish outside the top 4 in the league. In this case, since a max of 5 can go to the UCL, the top 3 plus Spurs and Europa winners would get into UCL next year, and the 4th place team would go to Europa along with either Watford or the 7th place team.

What I said had nothing to do with Silva, some our obsessed with my opinion of the man, I was making a comment about playing in Europe next season that was all.
Also comparing him to Allerdyce over a season is sill as Sam was not here a season and this I also did not say.
Please read what I say and comment on that but do not decide what you think I think I comment on that.
As you lot seem to mention Silva I am not totally happy with him as you know but should be allowed another season as not good changing manager all the time. Saying this does mean I like the guy or am happy with him, most do agree with me I know.

25 Apr 2019 19:45:28
My comments DC were merely pointing out that earlier in the season you commented that Silva had to better Allardyces 8th place considering the money spent. You also said the other day that Silva had a black mark against him for not playing youngsters.
I would think that us getting into Europe would aid Silva in being able to play more youngsters.

Aside from that, it does baffle me that you wouldn't want your team playing in a top European competition. One that will bring so much to the club.
It just comes across as too negative for me.
If that's how you feel than that's fine i just don't see the logic of it.

25 Apr 2019 22:39:57
I stand by all those comments but thinking on Sam was not here a season, and we are in 9th today I believe, a lot can happen in three games.
I can understand why you feel that Europe is a good thing but I do not agree with you at this time.
My comments about young players is 100% valid I feel, ok so not allways a positive spin on things but just a realistic view as I see things.
I hope this time next year I will be wanting Silva to get a longer contract and you can say I told you so but I will not be holding my breath.

26 Apr 2019 06:55:01
I will never say I told you so DC because I have always said I would make my mind up about Silva at the end of the season. I am already sold though, I am loyal to everything Everton and Silva comes in that bracket.
All I hope for is that you have a brighter outlook about Everton sooner than later.

26 Apr 2019 12:58:17
I agree with you smit, I don't understand how anyone cannot. Cementing our spot as best of the rest, playing in europe when the FA cup winner allows us and good cup runs/ wins is our best realistic target for the next couple of seasons.

Then push for the top 6 to turn into the top 7 unless another team fades away but I don't see that happening.

21 Apr 2019 23:17:15
After watching the MOTD rerun I don't think the result is because of United being poor I feel they were scared of us and couldn't cope with our forward play and how easily our attackers found space. This was a perfect performance from the lads and they deserve plaudits for how ordinary they made United look and it shouldn't be about how poor United were, which is how the pundits see it.

That's 10 points from a possible 12 from games against Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and United. It's no fluke that we have picked up these points, it's down to the way we have performed. All we need now next season is consistency by playing this way against lesser teams and winning games we should win. Onwards and upwards from next season hopefully.

Hear, hear! Yet, so many Evertonians wanted to get rid of Silva and start over again just a couple months ago, like years of poor decisions could be reversed overnight with a new manager. I reckon the same crowd were the ones pointing to Ole Gunnar Solkjaer as their model for instantaneous success. I'm not making any guarantees, but I maintain that our best chance at breaking into the top 6 (and hopefully top 4) is to see it out with Silva and Brands, who certainly have us on a positive trajectory. And, it very well might be the same for United and OGS, but they have a long project in front of themselves, not an instantaneous fix.

23 Apr 2019 11:54:47
If Silva can get Goodison back to the fortress it used to be it could be worth 40-45 points a season. We can be a very good counter attacking team on our day so could start to rack up some nice away wins too.
Not an excuse but it seems this season we have had some shocking refereeing decisions especially against the bigger teams.
Hopefully VAR will give everyone an even playing field.

David Neres of Ajax
Malcom of Barcelona
Can see us trying to make an early move for Neres great talent and high sell on fee if he keeps improving and also Malcom the cheaper option maybe loan for the season and go from there? What do you think Ed.

{Ed025's Note - both just names being bandied about at the moment eddy, they are both being touted by their agents and there is a very good chance that they will both move mate...but whether thats to us or not i really cant tell you mate..

I think Lookman will go and I think he needs to go rejuvenate his career exciting talent but something must be missing for all the managers not to play him. Would like us to promote a couple of u23s into the first team squad. Whoever ever brands and silva get over the line will be good going on this years signings.

10 Apr 2019 23:37:25
Is going to be interesting what happens Eddy, I read somewhere that Brands has said that the summer moves have been being planned and worked on since September so sounds like all has been planned out just need to execute the plan 😉.

11 Apr 2019 14:29:14
Stand by for operation Goodison.

17 Apr 2019 12:40:32
Can’t see David Neres joining us, his displays in the champions league will surely have bigger teams interested in him.

21 Apr 2019 16:10:17
Aĺl well looking at Neres, as well as everyone else. I'd fancy a dabble at Jesus from City on loan, not likely depends if they see him as Agueros successor. Nevermind still a great shout for Easter.

is he good with crosses tho mate?
