Hi Ed 025,i see a few of the rags are saying Watford have denied us permission to talk to Silva, anything from your end on this, I presume until we make it worthwhile ie offer loads of dosh for him this story is going to run, cheers mate.


{Ed025's Note - obviously watford wont want to lose one of the best up and coming managers GB but if he wants to go then there is not a lot they can do about it mate, there will have to be compensation paid of course but just like lukaku with us thats just the way of the footballing world im afraid, i have not heard anything yet on how are persuit of him is progressing..

1.) 14 Nov 2017 09:02:41
Usually Ed once the cub have approached Watford it will only end one way mate, cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Watford having been embroiled in regular losses of managers.}

2.) 14 Nov 2017 09:46:33
am I the only one not sold on the idea of silva he went to Hull and did ok but as expected when he went there hull went down then he joins Watford starts off really well but has lost his last 3 games and after 12 games what kind of manager jumps ship where is his loyalty what happens say if we get him then the Arsenal job comes up in the summer and then he wants to go there how will us Everton fans feel then this is a really big decision by the board as it has to be right and I'm not so sure silva is the man.

3.) 14 Nov 2017 10:09:19
Kinda agree with you bluey. As ed2 said before he can be a nuisance forcing his way out of clubs and although a good coach his managerial skills are iffy. Plus he has only been in premier league for 12 months or so. Too many questions for me.
I think maybe we can do better.

4.) 14 Nov 2017 10:16:57
I second that BLUEY79. I don’t understand this one either. I understand whoever’s appointed isn’t going to please everyone but I’m quite sure Koemans record (which didn’t set the world alight) was better than Silvas before he arrived. Surely we need someone who is actually proven and let DU take the reigns until that sort of manager comes available. Hoddle’s a great shout from one of the Ed’s, Dyche before Silva (for me anyways) . I think a bit of patience is needed here.

5.) 14 Nov 2017 10:27:21
it seems we go for flavour of the month managers they should seek outside advice because this a big big decision and our board can't afford to get it wrong.

6.) 14 Nov 2017 12:23:42
Agree mate must wait and get this appointment of manager right, i think the board know who they want by now, its just the usual rags dishing up their rubbish to make nonsense headlines to sell papers.

7.) 14 Nov 2017 14:38:13
I like what Silva does but yeah there is an aura of Martinez about him.

8.) 14 Nov 2017 16:45:04
I agree Swan. Martinez was supposed to be "the man". And look how that worked out.

9.) 14 Nov 2017 19:32:56
His attacking set up but shipping goals has all the hallmarks of Martinez.

10.) 14 Nov 2017 22:06:22
Agree with above. Another Martinez. We need someone who can organise a defense.



12 Nov 2017 19:41:43
Hope that's true what is being reported that Vlasic does not get much chance but only on the the bench under Unsworth, to me he has been one of our better players recently.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 09:08:45
Should have said not true.

2.) 13 Nov 2017 11:23:36
Agreed has been a bright spark for us recently, not sure what Unsworth ha against him! hopefully he'll be back with the U23's soon and a new manager can take us forward!

3.) 13 Nov 2017 12:40:05
Not sure how people can disagree with the above comments. Vlasic and Pickford have been two bright sparks in an otherwise very underwhelming season so far. Would like to see more of Vlasic, particularly because he gives us width and actually looks to go forward and go past people rather than just pass sideways or backwards.



07 Nov 2017 12:15:40
Wow Ed 025 Mr Moshiri dream move would be for Diego Simeone, what a manager and statement of intent by Everton, no more negatives please and no Sam either.


{Ed025's Note - that one came out the blue GB, cant speak a word of english and that could be a problem along with his fiery reputation mate but certainly sounds better than allardyce mate..

1.) 07 Nov 2017 12:36:32
What a catch that would be though Ed if we did get him, never see a negative post on here again, heaven.

2.) 07 Nov 2017 12:42:35
Where have you seen this. If true, a real statement of intent by the board.

3.) 07 Nov 2017 12:44:42
seem to remember a certain m. pochettino couldn't speak a word of English for two years upon his arrival! by the way I am in no way saying we are getting someone no fat chance of that.

{Ed025's Note - i have had an update on simeone actually w from ED002 who has met the guy, he tells me that he can actually speak a little bit of english so my original statement was not actually true mate..sorry..

4.) 07 Nov 2017 12:54:07
Hi SSN at lunchtime mate.

5.) 07 Nov 2017 12:54:19
I said before of he would be my favourite manager to be at Everton out of anyone. Sadly I don't think we appeal to him yet. Hopefully some day.

6.) 07 Nov 2017 13:14:52
Have found a few links now, cheers.

7.) 07 Nov 2017 13:29:25
my heads all over the shop, one minute big sam next simeone. roll up and place your bets.

{Ed002's Note - Forget Simeone. Walsh will get his way with the dream team of SA and Craig Shakespeare assuming the money can be agreed.}

8.) 07 Nov 2017 13:53:58
we can dream ed.

9.) 07 Nov 2017 14:15:10
Its funny if the papers say something good a lot accept it, but when bad they are rubbish rags? LOL.

10.) 07 Nov 2017 14:56:42
Not seen it in any papers yet mate, I saw it on SSN at lunchtime, no doubt they will pick up on it later though.

11.) 07 Nov 2017 15:55:35
Ed002 how much input does Walsh have in the process of finding a new manager?

{Ed002's Note - It is him who wants Allardyce and Shakespeare and he is the "football" person at board level. Dyche would be a better longer-term solution solution but Burnley will not want to be letting him leave right now. Unsworth is not the solution either. The club needs bettwe advice than they are getting.}

12.) 07 Nov 2017 17:02:22
Hi Ed, If this Allardyce move is Walsh led then I feel the previous discussions we had about a Sporting Director are very much needed and Walsh should be moved sideways to head of scouting and player recruitment
Question is though what makes a good Sporting Director and could be possible candidates?

{Ed002's Note - The attributes are the need to co-ordinate all sporting aspects of the club, first team, youth teams, scouting systems, negotiation and act as a buffer between the board and the first team manager. There are no suitable candidates as Everton already have someone in the role.}

13.) 07 Nov 2017 17:55:59
Get rid of Walsh, should have gone before koeman for me.

14.) 07 Nov 2017 19:32:08
Ed25, I remember a certain poche at Southampton not being able to speak a word of a English as well and had an interpreter at press nterviews, seems to not have been a problem for him.

On a lighter note who remembers bob the pole, he was brilliant until he learned English and was coached how to play, went downhill after that.

{Ed025's Note - its not always a problem baz, poch by the way pretends not to speak good english to avoid the press mate..

15.) 07 Nov 2017 21:01:11
Thanks Ed. It’s a pity we weren’t able to lure Monchi into the DoF role at the time.

{Ed002's Note - Monchi was another who was not going to be joining Everton.}

16.) 07 Nov 2017 21:36:46
So in your opinion Ed02 it's Walsh being in the wrong role causing most of the problems at Everton? Just out of interest in your opinion who would you be going for? If you were hypothetically the third party advice?

{Ed002's Note - Walsh should not be in the job. Dyche would be a good option although Hoddle would be my pick.}

17.) 07 Nov 2017 22:36:03
While we are at it Ed how about Jack Lester if Hoddle turned us down :-)

18.) 07 Nov 2017 23:44:02
Hoddle with Rhino as number 2? Now that would appease the fans.

19.) 08 Nov 2017 18:15:20
Surely to god, Sam Allardyce cannot seriously be getting the job?

It makes absolute zero sense to employ him, either in a short term role, or long term. Short term - he would have a little bit of an impact and make us difficult to beat, but would take the club backwards and we'd be worse off come the summer. Long term - the man is renown for playing ugly, boring football and would take us even further backwards as a club.

Why can't the people at this?



04 Nov 2017 12:56:07
Hey Ed 025 further to my post this morning about Usmanov and his involvement at Finch Farm, i notice that none of the usual rags have picked up on this story, which leads me to think that maybe there is not much in this story at after all, i see that on Panorama Special on Monday is not devoted to purely Everton but only a small part of it regarding Tax Havens and the like, so fingers x mate nothing to worry about.


{Ed025's Note - lets hope so mate..

1.) 04 Nov 2017 17:34:59
prob mentions us from a few years ago, re the dodgy loans from earl and co. can't see usmanov and moshiri being that daft. or the FA not noticing any dodgy dealings.

2.) 05 Nov 2017 12:51:29
It's hardly revelatory billionaires using business vehicles to avoid paying tax or spreading their in investments.
Perhaps they should investigate why there were water cannon parked outside the away end. at lyon for approximately 3000 blues.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 00:24:46
It’s something of nothing I think, there was nothing that we didn’t know other than a gift sum of money, I think there just wondering like the rest of us have been that Usmanov could well be involved further down the line depending on his Arsenal involvement which on the basis of the last few months with offers being made for full control, Everton could be his route out, hence why MOSHIRI bought half the club leaving room for full takeover, weather this happens or not I don’t see any controversy over this transaction.



04 Nov 2017 08:20:52
Hey Ed 025 do you know what's going on with this Usmanov story being investigated by Panorama will be shown on Mon sounds dodgy to me mate hope it isn't true.


{Ed025's Note - i have heard some rumours that not everything is as cosher as it seems GB but not the details mate, the last thing we need is a scandal though..

1.) 04 Nov 2017 11:10:53
Everton’s ownership and the alleged involvement of Alisher Usmanov, the Arsenal shareholder, at Goodison Park will be scrutinised in a two-part Panorama special,

The BBC has obtained documents pertaining to Usmanov’s purchase of a 14.58 per cent stake in Arsenal in 2007 through the Red and White investment vehicle that he jointly owned with Farhad Moshiri, who sold up to his business partner last year to facilitate his purchase of 49.9 per cent of Everton.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 13:08:23
I'm sure we'll be fine. The premier league has already scrutinised and signed off the deal and the original money even if it was a gift, it isn't a loan so I doubt it can be considered usmanov's money.

3.) 04 Nov 2017 13:59:36
Hi stig yeh saying on the Panorama site that this is about the offshore tax havens etc and that it is only a small part of the programme that is Everton related, so fingers x mate.

4.) 04 Nov 2017 19:48:48
if i read it right they are saying that usmanov gave moshiri shares in Arsenal as a gift so couldn't of sold them back and it's usmanov who is our majority shareholder not moshiri which is just pathetic i was expecting it to be about jon woods who is as dodgy as they come but to me it sounds like let's try and kick Everton when they are down my question is why are they looking at us and not Man City who are constantly bending the rules with their owners sponsoring them for obscene amounts why because and I have always said it the media dislike us always have.

5.) 04 Nov 2017 20:05:10
Great news, may be forced to sell Arsenal stake and pop up north 💰💰💰💰💰.

19 Nov 2017 18:39:16
Only my opinion folks, but watching Silva in the interview after the game with Wet Ham, when asked about Everton and all the hype etc going on, he was coy and would not answer the questions directly put to him by saying yes or no but preferring a roundabout route, his body language looks to me as if he is interested in becoming our new manager, i reckon this won't carry on much longer but will come to a conclusion shortly, we will soon see for me I think he would be perfect.


1.) 19 Nov 2017 19:15:24
I agree it’s only a matter of time. Moshiri wants him he obviously wants to come. It’s just a case of a settlement now. I must admit after watching the game today I am a bit more positive about Silva. I know one game doesn’t mean that much. Watford is not a team I tend to watch that often. But they played good stuff and the players seemed to know their roles. It will be good to get someone in with confidence again though. Think it will be a gamble but all appointments are. I will give my full support and fingers crossed he starts well.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 02:44:51
I watched the game myself today mate to see how Watford played, they gave a few chances away but only half as many as we give away week in week out. They were generally well organised and played good football. We can't do much about our defence til Jan but Silva would make our attack a lot more dangerous. I'll be happy, and fully behind him if he gets the job.



19 Nov 2017 10:24:11
Further to my post yesterday I want to make it clear that I want a new manager in to takeover from Koeman and not Rhino, I like Rhino and appreciate all he has done for the club as a very good player and is now our under 23 manager and very good at it he is and long may that continue and he is a great Ambassador for our Club, but I am he afraid he comes up woefully short as a Premiership manager, to say he was happy with a point against the bottom club in the Premiership is not good enough, I watched MOTD this morning and we have been so lucky to pick up 4 points in our last two games 1 point would be more realistic of where we are as a team, also to play Morgan another bad example of his idea of a good squad, it's Dyche or Silva we need in quick in my view to stop this very poor football we are playing, I am sure we will come good again and put this awful period behind us COYBS, whatever I will always support our Great Club.


1.) 19 Nov 2017 12:54:17
Good post GB. Unsworth probably knows he hasn't got the job. I think he needs to go away and get some experience as a No2 or manage in the lower leagues and then come back and manage this great club.

2.) 19 Nov 2017 15:52:41
Good post GB, Smit mate I have been saying the same thing for a while now and I think I can count on 3 fingers the amount of people agreeing with me. I don't think he should manage in the lower leagues tho, he should stick with us and learn from whomever we get in. I would love him to be able to manage us one day.



18 Nov 2017 19:04:45
Hey Ed 025 I just can't get it out my head that Rhino is saying he was happy with a point at Palace, surely he has to go, not many fans will be happy with that statement if true, it shows no sense of what's needed to be lead us forward, i don't want him as manager.


{Ed025's Note - to be fair GB a point away at any premier league club is not to be sniffed at, thats half the problem with our club and its supporters mate that they see everton as this sleeping giant, reality is that we are a run of the mill club who aspire to be one of the big boys but have the mentality of a mid table club, some blame the board and some the manager others blame anything they can think of to justify why we underachieve every season, unsy is not the problem for me its everton in all its glory who build up your hopes and dreams only to leave us deflated every time... yours sincerely an extremely fed up everton editor and long time fan who is nearing the end of his tether..

1.) 18 Nov 2017 22:14:33
Unsworth needs to go? He's an interim manager, who will replace him? Duncan Ferguson? Nah you're okay.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 23:13:42
“He has to go”? What? He is the CARETAKER manager mate, not the person to take us forward etc etc. Win all your home games, draw all your aways - you would win the league. Palace may be bottom, but they’re not a bad side. People need to calm down.

3.) 19 Nov 2017 01:26:03
ed25. You now seem as piss off as the rest of us, but, are you now ready to accept what so mant of us have been saying for years, the problem at everton can be sumed up in one word Kenwright.
He may, yeaars ago, saved us from the big bad wolf, but since then it has been a string of brocken promises and, misted oppertunities, if we are ever to have a succsesful club, than the time to stand aside is now, and in truth, should have happend years ago.

{Ed025's Note - im not putting the blame on just bills shoulders JCW but there is something wrong somewhere, im not giving up on them because they are still my club but the frustration is driving me insane mate, we seem to have a small team mentality and i cant see how that will change anytime soon, you would think after 59 years of it i would be used to it by now..



18 Nov 2017 18:37:30
Hi Ed 0333 not me who said we had the makings of a good team and stay up in the posts below, case of mistaken identity me thinks mate, as I said stay as we are and with the same manager we get relegated, cheers.


{Ed0333's Note - ok pal thanks

1.) 18 Nov 2017 19:20:55
I hope you are wrong GB. Even the pundits are commenting on our apparent problems and confusion. In truth non of us know what is going on but I trust something is in the offing and after today things will move fast. 12 games 12 points carry on like this and we should be safe just on 38 points. Amazing to think that everyone had us top 6 pre-season.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 19:32:25
your right there mate, not good stats, sure the board won't let this carry on.



18 Nov 2017 18:09:27
Just watched highlights of the the game again and Niasse definitely dived not a pen but not complaining, how the hell Rhino was happy with a point I will never know, only Niasse and Kenny played anywhere near their best, we carry on playing in this vein and with Rhino at the helm we will get relegated, new manager quick Mr Moshiri, i am sure he will sort this out pronto, he has moved mountains for us since he arrived at Everton.
