Does AC Milan's new financial power mean we could see them target a couple of our players? Ref. to Lukaku/ Deulofeu.


{Ed002's Note - Gerard Deulofeu is of interest to them but not Lukaku. They have other striker targets.}



11 Apr 2017 19:19:27
Now that Besic is back from his injury, does anyone expect him to be given a chance? I love the guy, but I don't see where he fits in? Anything behind the scenes about him, Eds?


{Ed025's Note - i like mo as well hugo but with morgan in the team im afraid he will be resigned to a squad player mate..

1.) 12 Apr 2017 01:39:28
Good squad player to have too. Works hard but injuries are his problem.

2.) 12 Apr 2017 07:42:56
I think they will keep him in the under 23s until the end of the season then see if he can stay fit during pre season. I hope he will get a chance after that as he is so versatile and can play as cover across the back too.

3.) 14 Apr 2017 20:12:24
Said this about Besic before. I also like him but the way he plays I am afraid he has a very short career span ahead of him.

Hi Ed (s) . I know you've mentioned it in detail in the podcast, but could just give a quick run-through of the potential ins-and-outs in January? The internet is so bad here that I can't access the podcast! Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I can only tell you where there has been interest and there is no guarantee that anything will come of that interest in January or the Summer. However:
Manolo Gabbiadini (last ditch attempt)
Sebastian Rudy
Sander Berge
Kasper Dolberg
Rafik Zekhnini
Rachid Ghezzal
Lamine Kone
Niklas Sule (won't happen)
Memphis Depay (Manchester United will look to sell and not loan Depay)
Sead Kolasinac (looking for a pre-contract)
Kevin Strootman (high risk - dumb move)
Josh Tymon
Ademola Lookman
Federico Santander

James McCarthy
Oumar Naisse
David Henen
Romelu Lukaku (Summer)
Liam Walsh

1.) 22 Dec 2016 11:37:29
The one that sticks out to me is kasper dolberg big striker only young though and the way koeman played at Southampton he had pelle up top GREAT TOUCH and put a Decent shift in.

2.) 22 Dec 2016 11:44:55
Liam Walsh? I thought he was looking the real deal?

3.) 22 Dec 2016 11:45:22
I would have expected to see Brahimi of Porto and Sneiderling on the list Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Porto are in talks with another side about Yacine Brahimi. West Brom have held discussions with Manchester United and put an offer on the table for Morgan Schneiderlin. I am not aware of any approach by Everton.}

4.) 22 Dec 2016 12:05:30
No Schneiderlin?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Everton - if they are interested then they need to better the offer from West Brom and a talk to Manchester United.}

5.) 22 Dec 2016 12:51:28
Thank you for that Ed002.

What about Schneiderlein? I know he wasn't mentioned in the podcast but what's the chances?

{Ed002's Note - About zero unless Everton make an approach and make a better offer than that already made. Maybe they will.}

6.) 22 Dec 2016 15:56:37
Would Walsh be loan or permanent. Thought he was making great progress.

{Ed002's Note - They are looking to send him on loan to a Championship side - offers from Bolton, Charlton and Yeovil were made and rejected for loans in the summer.}

7.) 22 Dec 2016 16:08:19
Why would we need to better the West Bromwich offer then it will be uo to the player to decide? can't see why united would decline a matching offer from us when we have had no previous issues dealing with them?

{Ed002's Note - Everton won't be aware of the details of the West Brom offer and if they plan on any childish games like that then best forget him and move on.}

8.) 22 Dec 2016 16:40:43
Thanks, ed. Could be an exciting January!

9.) 22 Dec 2016 18:29:06
Ed do u think we will use Walsh as loan option to try and get lookman from Charlton instead of loaning lookman back to Charlton till the end of season as for rest of are transfer targets I will believe it when I see them signed on dotted line after there underwhelming end to transfer deadline day in august.

{Ed002's Note - The two are separate matters.}



28 Aug 2016 23:14:25
Any news on the reported links to Gabbiadini? Brahimi?


{Ed025's Note - both very much on the radar hugo, if i had to choose it would be brahimi for me though mate but i would not be too gutted if gabbiadini put pen to paper mater..

1.) 29 Aug 2016 00:02:24
Brahimi for me aswell Ed think 1 more before Wednesday or 2 if someone goes.

{Ed025's Note - its great that since moshiri has been with us that we dont baulk at the prices lee, i believe that we can compete for the best players now mate and the future looks bright..

2.) 29 Aug 2016 08:14:20
Thanks as always, Ed. Do you know if its one or the other, or are both targets?

{Ed025's Note - they are both legitimate targets hugo but it will be one or the other mate..

3.) 29 Aug 2016 14:48:47
Would we not possibly sign both? Brahimi is that creative spark as an attacking midfielder and Gabbiadini plays striker or also wing so both would give different options. I could be wrong though.

4.) 29 Aug 2016 14:53:20
I hope Gabbiadini is just a smoke screen for something better. 20-25m for a guy who warms napoli's subs bench and scored 5 goals last season? I mean, what is it about him that people want exactly? Brahimi on the other hand is what we need. yes he's a bit of narcissist but we need an offensive player who shows no fear when taking a man on. Someone who wants the ball at his feet. He would be a statement signing and a potential difference maker on the field. Yes he's going to give the ball away because he takes more chances, but isn't that what ross did all game on saturday?



22 Aug 2016 18:14:58
Ghezzal turned us down in lieu of a new contract at Lyon. Good luck to him.


1.) 22 Aug 2016 18:45:20
Hence the move for the porto player i think o well his loss.

Moment of madness from Williams but the man's human. Things happen. On to the next.


1.) 05 Apr 2017 14:50:30
much improved display shame we didn't show half that fight on Sat.
Does anybody else think the ref was as a home banker as they have seen he gave us nothing especially on Barkley who I thought should of had a few free kicks I wonder if his tackles at the weekend played on the refs mind due to Ross being very lucky to stay on the pitch v lfc.



27 Mar 2017 02:26:48
Hi Ed, noticed on the rumours page you said the scouting system at the club has changed a lot.

Can you tell us how? Not that it's important, just curious.


{Ed002's Note - Steve Walsh has arrived and has been joined by Laurence Stewart an new chief scout Martyn Glover - but still of course they get trashed by the Everton fans. I find that stuff a great embarrassment to read sadly Hugo.}

1.) 27 Mar 2017 08:47:40
Fortunately Ed that post referring to our inability to scout a decent forward whilst misinformed doesn't reflect the views of many who post on here. I am particularly excited by the business we have done post Steve Walsh and co'.

{Ed002's Note - Good TA - good to hear.}

2.) 27 Mar 2017 10:07:53
Some people are never happy, Ed!

3.) 27 Mar 2017 10:41:23
I have to say the moaners are in a very small minority now. I was one last season. with good reason I believe. But as soon as Mr Walsh arrived my view completely changed. I knew of his history only from the media but it was obvious that he worked in the same was as Clough and Peter Taylor did at Forest. In building the team that won the European Cup twice. Taylor would scout the players and leave all the coaching and management matters to Clough. I could see a similar approach at Leicester and hoped that he would work with Koeman in a similar fashion. That indeed seems to be what is happening and so far very successfully. Gana, Calvert-Lewin and Lookman are all quality in my eyes. I hope for many more of this quality to come in and Koeman can work his magic in turning them into a unit. I expect us to sign a young central defender, a young center forward and another creative midfielder. Probably from lower leagues or ones not needed at another club. Danny Drinkwater and Marc Albrighton at Leicester were not exactly setting the world alight throughout their careers but in the unit of Leicester City with the flair of Marez make an exceptional unit. let's see who we sign and how Koeman sets up a midfield to challenge the rest. Gana is the start of that I believe.

4.) 27 Mar 2017 10:50:35
Spot on Toffee Ace I would go as far as to say the majority of fans are made up with the progress so far since the take over. Unfortunately the few that are not tend to be the ones that make most noise.

5.) 27 Mar 2017 11:27:55
More importantly it seems Lukaku is not happy with our buying policy. Although, I believe he will find any excuse to get his move away from the club.



23 Mar 2017 08:42:51
Anyone for a pint in Bramley Moore later?


1.) 23 Mar 2017 10:21:34



24 Jan 2017 11:51:15
Hi Ed. Are we looking to tie up any deals for players on pre-contract agreements?


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware Hugo.}

1.) 24 Jan 2017 18:41:23
Thanks as always.

When I grow up, I want to be Tom Davies

Investment in Pogba was more than footballing reasons. He's a marketing machine. Hard to compare him and any other player.

Saying we've got cover for when Lukaku leaves in Kone and Niasse is like saying it doesn't matter if you crash your Ferrari because you've got a Nissan in the garage

Sorted himself out a bit at Liege, by the looks of things.

£10.4 million, Phil McNulty, bbc reporter.


{Ed002's Note - The price is in euros and not GBP and the third-party who is involved will take a percentage on top - perhaps McNulty should share information in the correct currency?}

Could be a steal for the quoted price then?


{Ed002's Note - What "quoted" [rice would that be?}

Can see us buying. Hopefully keep Galloway as CB but think Garbutt will be moved on.
