Whilst out and about today was listening to a sport radio station where they talk a lot 😉, anyway their London based reporter said Batshuyi has said he doesn’t want to go to West Ham or Spain and wants to go to Everton 😳🤷‍♂️It’s whether we’re prepared to buy him in this window, anyway just what was in the radio

Apparently the his proposed move to real Betis and West Ham have fallen through because of his wage demands, he wants £160,000 a week not worth it in my view, Chelsea now looking to loan him anywhere, Spurs were offered him but did not want him either.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 19:23:22
160k a week?! He’d have to be on a free transfer to warrant that.

4.) 31 Jan 2019 19:28:04
Nobody is going to pay him $160,000 a week so he will be going nowhere. According to sky news he has only scored 8 premier league goals so we are better off without him.

5.) 31 Jan 2019 20:12:06
My sentiments mate go with what we have and re evaluate in the Summer.

{Ed025's Note - i was actually resigned to that from the start of the window GB..

6.) 31 Jan 2019 20:17:50
£160k a week? The world truly has gone mad. He’s not proved he’s worth 20% of that yet.

7.) 31 Jan 2019 20:41:34
True Mike mate as you say only 8 goals scored, not worth it.

8.) 01 Feb 2019 11:45:56
I hope on the summer we can do better than him, would only loan him as still unproven in the prem.

Hi Ed’s, I seem to remember some previous mention of a striker a Mexican lad who plays for PSV that mr brands wanted to bring. Was that 2+2 by lazy journos as brands signed him previously, or were we interested and if so are we likely to try in January. Or have I eaten too much chocolate and had a sugar rush

Much as I like the lad I guess it was to protect their investment. He does seem vulnerable at times and might cost us a few points here and there.

With utd and our neighbours bowing out of the cup, Silva needs to pick Pickford and a strong team for the cup games, sod the rotation, let’s go all out for one of the cups.

I watched most of the game today and thought we were in second gear for most of it . I thought there were some positive signs Baines and Richarlison linked well and Sandro and Coleman also. Sigurdsson had some nice touches but is trying to get back up to speed. Gana was everywhere and trying to win everything. Keane looked like he wanted to bring the ball out but nervous Jags looked frustrated.

There is often too much negativity on here so that’s not happening in this post.
On the result I’ve seen seasons when we won every preseason game and then had a stinker of a season conversely I’ve seen have preseasons like this one and we’ve had a stormer even winning the league ( not that I’m suggesting that’s going to happen this season) but it’s all too early to tell how it’s going to go so let’s hope MS learned more about his squad we got some more minutes under the belt and hopefully some signings to come in.

I’m going to keep the Faith and see how it looks at Christmas. As the saying goes it’s a marathon not a sprint.

I’m with you mate - keep the faith! As the old adage goes - you win or you learn. MS will learn more about the players/ system in games like today than he would if they were turning sides over 22-0.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 01:40:10
Not just us but I've noticed that teams through our divisions have good seasons on the back of crap pre seasons. hope our 22 nil win don't bite us in the bum lol.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 15:48:38
Let’s not forget we have fielded almost two sides in each game we have played so far.

What I want to see in our last pre season game is as close to our starting 11 as possible, with only a few substitutions being made in the match.

What do we think about this alleged quote from Troy Deeney at a Watford fan forum that they will kick the sh1t out of Everton.
Surely if he did allegedly say this then if the referee has any spine he should punish every heavy tackle against us as deliberate, furthermore should the f. a. take a stance as bringing the game into disrepute in that is this the sort of example a professional footballer should displaying. This has been widely reported I read it in the times and heard it reported on the radio. I am perplexed that this has not caused more of an outrage. I know it’s a physical game but surely this isn’t the right attitude
Don’t think I’m on a moral high horse and if I’ve missed this discussed already apologises Ed’s

{Ed025's Note - silva has come out and said that hes ok with it Big C as it was just a figure of speech apparently mate..still in poor taste though..

1.) 08 Feb 2019 22:34:02
Don't give a monkeys to be honest Big C. Sorry to be old fashioned but it is a mans game. I actually like Troy Deeney, all the lad is doing is shooting it off. Anyway what has it got to do with the FA, isn't it possible to kick the Cr*** out of the oppostion and remain within the rules of the game.

2.) 08 Feb 2019 22:43:26
Even so though Ed, it is poor taste, and I get that’s how to rattle our team is to get physical as some of them aren’t up for a scrap, but to actually voice that you’re going to deliberately kick the opposition is bang out of order not to mention it shows a remarkable lack of common sense, Perhaps you Mr. Deeney isn’t the sharpest crayon in the box.

{Ed025's Note - its in poor taste mate but its just words in the end, if every time i said to my kids i was going to kill them...i would be typing this on a prison computer.. :)

3.) 08 Feb 2019 22:50:22
Troy Deeney looks like somebody has already kicked the rubbish out of him! In all seriousness though tomorrow will be a tough game with Watford out to prove a point over Silva and the home crowd being hostile. We need to remain focused and try and silence the crowd early on, if we show the same intensity that we did against City then we will create chances and cause Watford problems, especially on the counter.
I would like to see the same side as Wednesday bar one and that's Lookman for Walcott, keep Davies in the advanced role and leave Ricky on the bench as an impact sub, he play acts at the best of times and I feel tomorrow would be too much for him to handle from the home crowd. I'd go 4-1-3-2 Pickford, Zouma, Keane, Digne, Kenny, Gueye, Bernard, Davies, Lookman, Tosun, DCL. Let's set up to actually attack and have a go.

4.) 08 Feb 2019 23:03:30
I think the terminology should be taken into context on this mate. If he was talking to a journalist he would have said something along the lines of 'get stuck into Everton' which, to me at least, translates as pretty much the same as what he actually said. He was, in effect, geeing up his own supporters and identifying with the fans. I wouldn't get offended by his words, I want my team to do the same to his!

5.) 08 Feb 2019 23:33:06
Clout him back then. they are grown men. Feeney only tries to bully the smaller than him like the time last season when he tried to gauge Joe Allen's eyes out.

6.) 09 Feb 2019 08:40:08
You know what, I'd buy him in the summer and make him captain. He might only be good enough to play the odd game but boy would he have the players riled up for games.
He is exactly what our team is missing.

{Ed025's Note - if he was a bit younger i would agree with you mate..

7.) 09 Feb 2019 09:56:38
Don’t get me wrong, I get it, done it myself, and we definitely need to give it back but just the wisdom of saying it in a public forum and everyone is ok with it, authorities wise?

Schurle may be a good shout.

9.) 09 Feb 2019 14:16:58
I like what troy has said, up to our players to give it back or shy away find out who wants it more today I think.



06 Feb 2019 21:55:00
I listened to the game on EFC Live and it sounded like we played well and at least got stuck in. Another shoddy refereeing performance with more strange decisions according to Snods and Alan Irving/ Irvine. Good to hear the fans supporting the performance and although we lost it wasn’t a spanking. Hopefully we can keep it up against Watford.
Chins up and go again COYB

{Ed025's Note - it was a decent performance Big C, the lads gave their all and it was only a lack of quality that let us down mate...well that and anal marking..

1.) 06 Feb 2019 22:17:50
I think it was nothing more than an excercise in damage limitation they missed a lot of chances a couple of great stops by Pickford it could have been a lot worse.
All said though the effort was there but we are so lacking quality and of course confidence it’s a mountain we have to climb to have any hope of competing with the top 4!
Comments this week suggest Silva is the man long term especially to develop the young players so it’s possibly going to be more pain before we see the gain!

2.) 06 Feb 2019 22:20:19
Consistency is what is needed, performances like that (even with lack of quality as Ed says) , all season would have us on a lot more points than we have now. 26 games and zonal marking and team setup the same as at Hull and Watford, has Mr Silva it seems, still convinced his methods work. I hope he (like the reviled Big Sam, I am not one I hasten to add) uses video replays to watch back. In those videos he would see that once again from set play we concede. Our outfield and open play was full of determination tonight and as I said on the live chat, sort the zonal and set piece out and we should go on a run for the remaining games. Fingers crossed.

{Ed025's Note - we done well DFS and showed fight and commitment all night, if we get rid of that anal marking (its all my arse) then we will have a far better chance of getting more points on the board mate..



30 Jan 2019 08:03:05
It doesn’t take much to make me happy one win and I’m now looking at the table thinking beat wolves at home and we’re 7th. It’s a lovely world wearing blue tinted glasses. I just wish it was every day

29 Jan 2019 11:25:40
Does anyone else think that we should be finishing no higher than 8th as there is a good chance that the European places will go down to 7th and the last thing we need is an early start and a messed up preseason. To be honest 8th will be a challenge top half hopefully, but getting into the europa places would be a disaster

Wouldn't say its a disaster but it would make things really difficult if we were changing the squad as we all hope.

I hope we never qualify for that Europa league it just f@#$s your season up, and we can do that without it.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 12:28:24
I wouldn’t go that far it’s a steppingstone to prepare for eventually getting in the champions league and you need European football to attract the better players, but just not next season. It’s probably a moot point as unless we go on an amazing run top half will be a result .
Big C.

{Ed025's Note - 17th would be a result the way we are going Big C.. :)

4.) 29 Jan 2019 12:34:42
europe helps everything, helps in attracting players, and helps the club build and get used to these European trips, all the clubs do it that way, and I think our target at this current moment should be in fact to get into Europa and do it consistently and build on it.

5.) 29 Jan 2019 13:01:19
Bit of a dilemma isn't it. Getting up towards the top is only possible if we've been on a decent run, which we all want to see. Too close to the top could mean a place in Europe and all that entails. Personally I'd like to go as high as poss and hope that instills enough confidence in the squad to cope with the EL.

With BigH on this, who the heck wishes their Team not to do their best.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 13:50:09
Don’t get me wrong I hope we do our best but I don’t think the additional pressure, games and shorter preparation time would help having a europa cup campaign starting in mid July, considering where we are at currently. Hey if we get our act together and go on an amazing run and finish in the europa places then I’ll be thrilled
Big C.

8.) 29 Jan 2019 13:54:21
I like the Europa League and would be more than happy if we qualified, but only in fifth or sixth (which won't happen this season) .

Qualifying in seventh (or sixth depending on cup winners) is horrific because you start playing the half dozen qualifying matches almost straight after the end of the season and often nearer China than the UK.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 14:20:23
Can't tell if you're being sarcastic DFS or if that was a compliment. I'm easy whichever. :-)

10.) 29 Jan 2019 14:38:22
I would like us to get into Europe that way I get more holidays✈️.

{Ed025's Note - good thinking mate..

11.) 29 Jan 2019 16:05:13
Anyone who has travelled abroad with our amazing away fans understands why I say bring Europa League on! It also means we are making progress. After that would be Champions League. I think saying not to want it is lake saying would you accept being relegated for a trophy? No way. League positions first but qualification for Europe second!

12.) 29 Jan 2019 16:37:31
There is no chance of us getting into Europe this season exept to go on are summer holiday lol.

13.) 29 Jan 2019 18:25:23
The only teams who appear to win the europa league are those with big squads. Look at all the other teams who get in with smaller squads and how it ruins a lot of their their season. Devil you know and devil you don't.

{Ed002's Note - The squads are all the same size.}

14.) 29 Jan 2019 18:44:28

15.) 30 Jan 2019 14:47:03
hahahaa the squads are all the same size got me that.



22 Jan 2019 18:10:21
Hi fellow blues, this may not sit well with some of you but please bear with me.
The over excited German manager joined the other lot in October 2015.
Financially and squad wise they were already years ahead of us in investment both on and off the pitch.
In the 2015-16 season they finished 8th
In 16-17 season they finished 4th
Last season they finished 4th again
Now in their 4th season they are where we are looking to be challenging for by the time we move to BM Dock.
If my memory serves me correctly they didn’t buy many if any players in that first January window preferring to work with what he had as we know when they did buy they bought big .
So bearing in mind mr silva and mr brands are sorting through Martinez and Allardyce signings and are doing a complete overhaul I think
A / we need to be realistic as to where we finish this season
B/ we need to be patient
C/ we need to show our support for the team
There are of course things we expect from our team and club but let’s be realistic we are a work in progress there are going to be disappointments and dissatisfaction but let’s be patient .

Is it really that difficult to say "klopp" and "Liverpool", oh and you are correct, klopp didn't buy anyone in his first window, also we did buy big in his third full season, but only because we sold big to fund it. I don't think you have any players you can sell to fund massive transfers, so using us as a comparison is futile.

Hi Waro, no I don’t have a problem saying your managers name nor mentioning you teams name nor was I making a comparison, I was merely outlining to my fellow blues (please note my opening line) how sometimes being patient can bring the results that we, the collective we that is, can achieve our dreams, everything comes to those who wait I believe is the quote. So hopefully that explains things too you! I understand that our site is more interesting than yours hence your visit and reading of my post. I take time answer your post as it is quite possible English isn’t your first language, possibly Norwegian is? and some of it may have been lost in translation. Best wishes for the rest of the season

7.) 23 Jan 2019 09:50:42
Totally agree if we are to progress we must give the manager enough time to bring in players and move out players that are not suited to the style tactics the manager wants to play.

8.) 23 Jan 2019 11:23:26
Precious? Oh okay sound. I'll be honest, I looked on here to read anti silva posts and that's exactly what I got, I thought he was a poor appointment myself but feel he's had no time whatsoever to work in and it's pretty poor on all your parts to not give him at least a season to try and get it right, could understand wanting rid of allardyce because he's a relic of a manager who see's the teams he takes over as a cashpoint for himself. Born and bread Scotland Road my mate so a long way from Norway, what's the weather like in Rhyl this morning by the way? Best wishes to you to. Like that ed033 👍👍.

9.) 23 Jan 2019 12:44:44
Hi Waro, can’t stay away eh?
By your own declaration you’re a local, welcome to the locals banter page, where we share thoughts and opinions on the mighty blues.
It’s good that your here getting your fix of Everton
If you won’t admit it on here at least admit it to yourself you’re a closet blue probably forced to follow the other lot through family or peer pressure and hey it’s ok you’re among friends here when you’re ready we’ll help you get a shirt and a scarf and everything you need.

Closet blue?, trust me, if you knew me that's the last thing you'd say, but as you say that's Scouse humour for you. I've (I think anyway) only given a fair assessment of your manager, it is a banter site after all, yet the replies have more than a whiff of the precious fan about them. Oh well, I tried to have a conversation, but you're not called the b. blues for nothing.

12.) 23 Jan 2019 19:00:50
jftr Waro, your initial contact was to whine because someone didn't say Liverpool or Klopp. That's the only reason you were called 'precious'. Hell hath no fury like a kopite scorned ;-p.

13.) 23 Jan 2019 20:07:02
No bigH, I'm not arsed mate. Just thought it was a bit petty to say that, seemed like he'd been told off for calling us red s**** or something and didn't have the balls to say it how he really wanted to. He should of owned it and said it how he probably would if he was stood with you in the pub or say klopp and Liverpool, just seemed a kop out for me.

14.) 23 Jan 2019 20:41:06
Hi Waro I’m not bitter, my wife is a red, and I quite like your manager and wish your team all the best, I wish we were playing with the attack/ drive that your team does. I’m not jealous just wanting and hoping the best for my team, as we’re both scousers we can both take a joke, and following my initial post that’s all I’ve been doing is having a laugh with a fellow scouser. If you read back my original post you’ll notice that I was supporting my manager and suggesting patience may be the right way considering Liverpool’s progress under Mr Klopp.
When I say all the best that excludes the derby and hope you secure second place🤣😉

15.) 23 Jan 2019 22:07:27
Okay big c. No worries mate, things when written down can come across in different ways to different people. Some of the other replies from other posters couldn't be misconstrued, they were bitter, but it's how it is now isn't it, and I've given enough stick out over the years so shouldn't really complain, but I think I'm mellowing to be honest. 🙈.

I’d tell them “it’s like every exam you’ve ever taken and you know the answer to every question is 100% Everton, yet every exam result day is a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and your told you’ve failed or just scraped a C but if you want to go further you need to do better or you’ll amount to nothing, and next doors kid gets A* in everything and your sick in the stomach then they show the nation on television how stupid you were to think that Everton is the answer. Yet the next exam you do the same and hope that one day it will be an A* because you’re sick of being told you’re not good enough.
