Gueye rumours to Arsenal and Barkley to Spurs, press trying to upset the team as usual when we are doing well 😳.

Southern Toffee

1.) 14 Mar 2017 08:47:25
To be honest JCW I hope we come out early and say that none of them are for sale. We don't want another transfer saga like last summer.

{Ed002's Note - So you don't think Everton should buy any players then?}

2.) 14 Mar 2017 09:29:29
ED There is nothing wrong with issuing a statement that some of our players are integral to the side and are therefore not for sale. Any team can put a bid in for any player issuing a statement just sets expectations for all parties. Nothing wrong with that. Alternatively we could just ignore the press, I tend to as they are not very reliable at best and totally full of it at worst. I don't see the logic in your comment ED?

{Ed002's Note - If Everton were not to sell players then they won't be buying any either. It is very simple, there is a restriction on the size of teh squad. It is a very naive view that you have.}

3.) 14 Mar 2017 09:39:53
i think the point being made was that none of our more important players are for sale.
The likes of McCarthy, Besic, Jagielka, Mori may well leave. Valencia will doubtless be released. So clearly there will be a need for more players to boost what is already a small squad, particularly with Europe looming.

4.) 14 Mar 2017 12:11:06
Imagine if the club came out and released statements about press rumours. Place would be a circus! If a bid came in for for either Gueye or Barkley I am sure the club would say "not for sale".

5.) 14 Mar 2017 12:50:31
Every player has their price. If a very high offer came in for any of our players and the management thought they could replace that player with a lower cost alternative but equal in talent that would happen providing the player wanted to leave. I suspect some of our first team squad realize that playing on a regular basis is better than sitting on some other team's bench.

6.) 14 Mar 2017 23:52:07
Spot on Southern about Everton doing well, it's always the same when games against Utd and the dark side are coming up. Whenever we look to be challenging, the media always have to link our players away.



27 Feb 2017 21:04:46
Let's stop thinking about 7th and look to 5th! With current form if that is maintained until the end of the season we will go past both Arsenal and Liverpool.

Then it's by merit!
Also, good to see Lukaku joint top of the scoring chart, all from open play as well unlike Kane and Sanchez! 😋.

Wrote a similar post on banter page Southern Toffee. Could very well happen. We still do have a good few games against the top 6. Think City is the only one we don't have to play. Then the likes of Hull who will be playing for there lives.

Still I'm hopeful like you and think we are in with a good shout to catch our neighbour's. They are slipping the last couple of months. Where as we are strengthening. No need to fear anyone anymore imho.

Would be sweet to get revenge on Chelsea after the last game. Only game this season where we were very bad imo. Can't see West Brom catching us. 7th at worst for me at the moment. As we all know that could change very easily. Probably will a number of times over the next dozen games.

2.) 28 Feb 2017 14:52:57
You are right, we have games against 5 of the top six, last season I would be looking down worried who would come up above us, now I am looking up thinking we can catch you lot!



06 Feb 2017 22:54:48
Hi Ed do we hold any interest in this kid ozankan kokcu?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Yes but he is just a kiddie and would not be for the first team. Kokcu is a free agent in the summer and whilst Feyenoord would like to offer him a new contract both Spurs and Everton have discussed the player with his agent. It would be best for his career to stay where he is for now.}

1.) 07 Feb 2017 06:39:24
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



31 Jan 2017 17:20:46
is there any substance to reports Everton (and Spurs) are looking at 18 year old Ozancan Kokcu with a view to signing a pre contract?
And if true with a player from a foreign league are there any development costs like with signing a young player in England who is out of contract?

Southern Toffee



26 Jan 2017 18:22:42
So what happened with this Gabbiadini fella, we chased in the summer regards a £25m deal from what reports have said now he is going for £13.5m with another £3.5m in add ons related to goals according to Sky
So you have to wonder why we are no longer interested, any insight Eds?

Southern Toffee

{Ed025's Note - it looks like napoli were trying to screw us ST and the club knew it, maybe we have had enough and refuse to deal with them mate..

1.) 26 Jan 2017 18:54:36
They say he off to Southampton is that right Ed

{Ed025's Note - a couple are interested AB but southampton look front runners mate..

2.) 26 Jan 2017 19:10:15
I'm hoping we've got other strikers that were looking at eds because if lukaku gets a knock then we're between a rock and a hard place. Is there no way efc could rival Southampton offer?

{Ed002's Note - It is not going to happen. Everton has plenty of options and has added Lookman.}

3.) 26 Jan 2017 19:20:38
Hi Eds I know Donkor is set for the under 23s but is he good enough for the first team because I still think we're light up front

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so - Everton has plenty of options.}

4.) 26 Jan 2017 19:31:30
You have said that twice Ed 002 re plenty of options. I am assuming that's not Kone or Valencia. So any clues?

{Ed002's Note - Lukaku, Mirallas, Lookman, Valencia, Koné.}

5.) 26 Jan 2017 19:49:15
So you don't think another out and out striker is a must then. Ed

{Ed002's Note - Plus Naisse and Tarashaj out on loan and no doubt some kiddies I don't know - it seems pretty overloaded until Lukaku leaves in the summer.}

6.) 26 Jan 2017 20:05:55
Think your right about Lukaku leaving but I still think we need a proven out and out striker to replace him

{Ed002's Note - And Bolasie out injured.

The time to look for a replacement is in the summer when more will be available and they will be easier to buy.}

7.) 26 Jan 2017 20:16:58
This fella Ed whoever he or she is, must be one of the most patient people around. No wonder sometimes his/ her comments once exasperated are a little caustic.

8.) 26 Jan 2017 20:17:05
Your right Eds

9.) 26 Jan 2017 23:30:07
Niasse scored for Hull tonight, he looked quite sharp, should we have given him more of a chance?

10.) 27 Jan 2017 03:32:37
Don't forget Calvert-Lewin who has played for the first team this year. I know he is out injured but it is only a short term injury.

11.) 27 Jan 2017 07:06:12
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

12.) 27 Jan 2017 07:15:13
Don't forget Bigdunc the Eds also put comments on other sites like utd, City and liverpool

13.) 27 Jan 2017 07:00:18
ed002, you say 'until' Lukaku leaves in the summer, is that the word behind the scenes that he is definitely off?

{Ed002's Note - There remains every likelihood that he will leave as he wants to play at the highest level.}

14.) 27 Jan 2017 08:14:55
Cheers ed, for a minute I thought you had something concrete for us. I expect him to move on sooner rather than later. Let's hope we can secure a replacement who can score

15.) 27 Jan 2017 08:55:55
None of the names mentioned above are replacements / alternatives for Lukaku. The issue is if he gets injured - what happens then? Most of the names mentioned have been tried alongside or instead of Rom ( Kone / Valencia / Mirallas ) and are not good enough. DCL looked okay in his short spell before the injury but jury out. Lookman to me is more of a winger and both Tarashaj and Niasse have been deeemed not up to it.
So I don't see any of them as 'options'.

Whether Rom leaves in summer or not we need another quality striker. And getting one and qualifying for Europe may persuade him that the significant improvement over 12 months means Everton are becoming a top club again

16.) 27 Jan 2017 10:05:24
The point I was makeing was in total how many goals have all the above scored, we still need a out and out striker if Rom gets injured

17.) 27 Jan 2017 10:13:00
Spot on Dave.

18.) 27 Jan 2017 10:18:11
Agree Dave. If we are serious about trying to break in to the top five before the end of this season then we need another striker. Not a winger, not a midfielder supporting the striker, but an out and out striker.
I would seriously consider Defoe on a short contract. Especially if as reported Mr M is after one or two of our players.

19.) 27 Jan 2017 10:25:22
With Niasse, isn't the point of a striker to score goals and by all accounts he scored for our under 23's and now last night he scored against Utd. The bloke may be all arms and legs and coordination apparently non-existent but he does put the ball in the net.

20.) 27 Jan 2017 11:51:40
Bigduncsmum - that response leaves me as exasperated as the Eds! In this day and age you have to do a little bit more than just put the ball in the net. It is pointless if every time the ball goes up to him it is lost / bounces off him.
He certainly seems to be able to score goals at a certain level but he also things (and tries) to score from the corner flag with alarming regularity.

Wow Niasse has banged in a brace 😳.

Southern Toffee

1.) 12 Mar 2017 11:23:56
He'll be like a new signing next season. for whoever signs him from us.

2.) 12 Mar 2017 14:05:52
hope he keeps banging them in will minimize our loss on him.



04 Mar 2017 20:32:06
If a player gets a ban after a match via the retrospective action and is banned for say 3 matches will they be only premiership matches or would they also count against Cup matches FA League Cup and and European ties?

Southern Toffee

1.) 05 Mar 2017 00:03:03
It is dependant on who the penalty is with. FA. Uefa. Or FIFA. They all apply to the game they are involved in. If it's the prem or family cup or EFL then they all apply. Uefa and FIFA are separate.

2.) 05 Mar 2017 00:49:47
So if for example a player gets a red or retrospective action in a premier league match they would be banned from Premier league games and FA cup but could play in Europe?



04 Feb 2017 19:12:19
A great result today and we get to enjoy Niasse scoring as well 😂😂😂.

With Gibson looking to be off maybe Morgan should swap to number 4 🤔

Hi Ed I read that Galloway is stuck at West Brom on loan and not getting game time but they won't release him to be loaned to Derby, can't we recall him like Chelsea did with Ake?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - It depends on the contract that they have.}

Teodorcyzk is the lad on loan at anderlecht, seems to be having a good season.
Saw something the other day that we are looking at Klaassen at Ajax and 3 sampdoria players Lucas Torreira, Dennis Praet and Patrik Schick.

Anything we bring in plus £7m? Not sure what that means, where did Moshiri put that out?
So are you talking about just from player sales? Or does that include Prize money from where we finish in the league? Plus the Tv money? Sponsorship deals etc.

True but aren't the club able to get relief from that for a while due to new owners investment?

Plus I am sure it takes into account an average over a few years which let's be honest we haven't really spent much and even now a large portion of our outlay was recouped by the Stones sale.

And then mix in the increased revenue new shirt sponsors sponsorship of finch farm etc and I am sure we have a lot more revenue coming into the club now.
So I am not saying we copy city as I feel we already have some good players at the club and some amazing youngsters coming through so we can afford to make a big splash in the market this summer and make that statement, but it still needs to be the right statement with the right players!

I think it's still an IF currently, he has ambition and wants to win things and from various things I have read like many, he is disenchanted with the progress in transfers, there are references to conversations with Kompany and how things changed there rapidly and I feel he is looking for similar so this next transfer window will be crucial as Koeman has often stated.
However if he does decide to go in search of champions league now then I wish him all the best and yes we will carry on.

Have we put an offer on the table yet? I would be surprised if there has been no initial talks. I think tie him down to a lucrative deal.
Bit more work from Koeman and perhaps a future captain!

I know much is being made that Hull went down to 10 men but you still need to close out those games, under Martinez we may have conceded when they were down to 10, you need to beat what is in front of you and I always think at this time of year relegation threatened teams are more dangerous.

I still think we have a sneaky chance of 4th in the last couple of games, possibly by a point or even goal difference!
We didn't play well today and got a 4 nil result, I suspect Koeman will be making sure we up our game for the derby!

And yes I know it's not likely but I still have faith and hope!
