Picture going around of a young gylfi standing next to the Dixie Dean statue in an Everton top . My gut tells me it's false but would love it to be true. Anyone else seen it?


1.) 17 Aug 2017 05:06:34
it is true.

2.) 17 Aug 2017 06:06:19
I posted it to sightings.

3.) 17 Aug 2017 08:29:19
He even went on a tour with the youth team. Shame we didn't sign him up then.

4.) 17 Aug 2017 08:29:53
yea it's his brother who put it up. said he spent a week training with us when he was 12 and was a ballot at gpoodison.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 11:52:26
and a ball boy as well :) :)

6.) 17 Aug 2017 18:13:36
I for one understood the joke Dixie :-)

7.) 17 Aug 2017 18:24:55
Gpoodison must be what they used to call the queue for the toilets :)

Lots of reports saying that Rooney has withdrawn from Uniteds pre-season and will complete a deal by end of the week. Seen different types of deal but latest ones are pointing to a free. He was never going to rejoin us at the top of his game and I don't think he is an automatic starter, but no one can deny that he is bringing much more than on the pitch performances. Plus, I'm hugely looking forward too seeing the best player I have seen in blue pull on the colours again.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 23:33:51
Rooney done deal by all accounts.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 01:16:16
Not sure if this is a good thing or not, time will tell I guess. Other question is "what position will he play? "

3.) 05 Jul 2017 01:40:20
i called this earlier on this was jose himself who blocked waynes return hoping we would pay 20 30 mill for him or they would sell him to china i guess but as many of you pointed out waynes not the type to uproot his whole family and. from when jose decided he no longer wanted him it was always going to happen. i hope he proves his critics wrong even if i can't see it myself, dare we dream of a whole new eleven i mean seriously walshy koeman and moshiri i have nowhere left to pinch please stop or move time forward so the season starts coyb.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 08:40:02
In answer to what position will he play. I think the No 10 role. Now a days he is best coming from behind the ball.

5.) 05 Jul 2017 15:16:43
some people need to take a step back with rooney, seen some awful comments on the web, from blues fans. reality is since the arrival of martial and then the emergence of lingard and rashford rooney has been played in a variety of positions, and been sub'd to make way for youngsters add to that the constant change in managers utd have been thru over past few years, and the manager they have now, who let's face it is the crown prince of buying players. well we've all seen they're results recently leaves utd in a position of needing / wanting to buy players 100mil plus, then they need to offload. i am sure that waynes age will not be a factor for at least a season or so cause he will have desire and heart to carry him thru and i am sure if he gets the wedge he wants from utd i am sure he would play for efc for free we all know he won't but he would i am sure if it was the only way to the neh say'rs your saying no to a player who despite his history loves everton he is a leader a winner and am sure will wisen a lot of our younger players quicker what is there not to like. whether on the pitch or on the training ground he will be a massive influence you just can't buy love like rooney has for us i would expect us to be a position higher in the table because of him altho not sure we will do much better than last season but hoping for more.

6.) 05 Jul 2017 17:31:09
My mate has just text me to say he's signed he heard it on radio merseyside their web site says he's withdrawn from the tour Man utd squad
Big C.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 17:32:55
The guy is still quality, just lost his mojo at the man said. He will go all out for us in an effort to get back into the England squad for the World Cup. May only last one season, but what a season it could be.



30 Jun 2017 17:45:26
Del boy has officially gone back to barce. part of me would have loved to see him stay. If he reaches his potential he could be a top player. However, for a long time he hasn't been able to last 90 minutes which makes me think he isn't working as hard as he could in training.

Good luck to him though.


1.) 30 Jun 2017 20:32:08
Agreed Cropper. I just don't think the Prem is for him. I don't doubt that he will thrive in Spain or Italy as the lad has bags of talent.

2.) 01 Jul 2017 10:20:14
I think the U21's touro showed he is okay in flashes but cannot sustain a 90 minute game as you need in the premier.
Personally I think he would be a bench player at Barcelona and although they cannot sell him for a year a Barcelona player will be worth much more than 10m euros in a years time.



18 Jun 2017 14:47:28
Couple of places saying we are looking at dembele from Celtic. Would be a great piece of business but can't see it.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 17:00:19
think he would be a great signing cropper but would rather have giroud if i'm honest, will dembele do it in the prem, big big risk for the money mate, scottish league totally diffrent than here mate.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 17:08:58
I think that one is wishful thinking sadly. Just can't see Celtic selling him after one very successful season. And even if they were it would be an astronomical figure for a striker untested at the level his fee would command.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 18:35:42
I'm not being funny but I could score 20 goals in Scotland, not for me lads.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 19:46:59
I agree smith666. Spoke to number of Celtic fans and say he would struggle in PL. griffiths is there number 1 striker and Armstrong is there best player.



17 Jun 2017 16:57:13
Don't suppose anyone knows what happened with the sandro meeting? I know he's in the confederations cup so I'm not expecting to fear much at the minute but are we confident in the deal?


1.) 17 Jun 2017 17:03:56
Signing apparently being announced 24/ 48 hours few people reporting it now.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 18:44:14
He's in the Euro U21's.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 20:52:49
Gary Birtley and the Sky commentator have just said during the Spain u 21 very Macedonia match that Sandro Ramie has agreed a move to Everton.

4.) 17 Jun 2017 21:25:57
The above text should read Gary Birtles and the sky commentator covering Spain u 21 v Macedonia have just stated that Sandro Ramirez has agreed a deal and is now an Everton striker.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 23:25:13
Pity on this showing.

Great to see bolasie get some game time for the under 23s. Early days but I'm excited for his return.




19 Sep 2017 14:04:19
My team for tomorrow:

Pickford (although he will probably play stek)
Kenny holgate Keane Robinson
Davies schniederlin
Lookman klaasen vlasic

Gives us youth, a little bit of experience in the middle with schniederlin, pace up top and what I think looks like a solid cb partnership. Though it maybe to early for Robinson so Martina Maybe?


1.) 19 Sep 2017 14:29:50
Why the hang up with 4-2-3-1 it hasn't been successful lately and everyone is shouting for tactical changes?
home vs a struggling Sunderland maybe the time to go two up top?

2.) 19 Sep 2017 14:48:48

kenny. keane. holgate. baines


lookman. vlasic


rooney. calvert-lewin

this against sunderland and in league aswell, stick to it get some costistency, brings balance and width and pace, forget this 2 holding midfielders its rubbish, jags and williams waist of time there past it.

3.) 19 Sep 2017 15:04:15
Rest Rooney and put Niasse in Djr.

4.) 19 Sep 2017 15:20:19
The problem with playing all the youngsters is defensively they are not good enough I think we need a blend of the proven youngsters ie holgate, davies and dcl and a couple of older heads. If kenny gets a run out i don't think putting Lookman in front of him to start is a good idea as he would be isolated in defence. I would go for kenny with martina at right mid as he plays pretty much as a wing back anyway. Alternatively play martina at rb with lookman rm

kenny keane holgate baines
martina gueye davies vlasik
sandro dcl.

5.) 19 Sep 2017 14:32:35
Robinson plays for Bolton but I like that team mate.

6.) 19 Sep 2017 15:39:23
Like the sound of that djrblue, nice and attacking and people playing in correct positions.

7.) 19 Sep 2017 15:54:53
My team for tomorrow
Kenny Jags Keane. Baines

Siggerson Davies Gueye Lookman

Niasse Calvert Lewin.

8.) 19 Sep 2017 16:38:41
I would play a 4-3-3 tomorrow with one midfielder farther upfield than the other two.
Kenny, Keane, Jags, Baines
Gueye, Klassen
Lookman, Sandro, Calvert Lewin

Bench: Stek, Davies, Williams, Mirallas, Vlasic, Niasse, Rooney

Front 3 all have pace and can interchange. We spent 45 mil on sigurdsson so we should actually play him in the right position. Hopefully Niasse can get a run out from the bench and take his opportunity.

9.) 19 Sep 2017 16:48:26
Holgate can't play left side of CB


Keane. Jags.

Kenny. Sniederlen. Baines.

Klassen. Rooney.
Lookman. Sigurdsson


10.) 19 Sep 2017 16:55:41
Got to play Sig he needs game time.

11.) 19 Sep 2017 16:58:17
I like that one Baz.

12.) 19 Sep 2017 17:33:11
Some good shouts there's myn is a bit different
Kenny Keane Williams baines
Davies gueye
Lennon sigurdsson lookman

And I don't think it's the end of the world if we lose tomorrow we have a lot of games. long as we play well and we score I will be happy. must win on the weekend tho.

13.) 20 Sep 2017 12:56:51

Kenny Holgate Keane Baines

Davies Guaye Vlasic

Lookman Sandro klassen.



31 Aug 2017 23:57:46
Overall, I have slight worries about our squad. There is a distinct lack of pace (mirallas/ Lennon are the only experienced first team that are fit) and we are lacking an imposing goal scorer. However, I still think I'm happier than before the window opened. Lukaku will be a great striker, but he didn't half blow hot and cold for us (think it's fair to say he was cold when we needed him most against the big guns) . We have brought in some quality players. although some of them took longer than we would hope, that's not always in our control. We brought in a highly rated striker I'm sandro but maybe expected him to hit the ground at 100m sprinter pace. But from what I've heard we had assurances that giroud was on board until this missus jumped in. Personally though, I am delighted to see us sort our gk with someone who can be here for 10 years then some, cb with a solid no nonsense defender And build towards the future again (im not even mentioning one of the most productive midfielders in the league for years, a premier league legend and 2 players with vast amount of admirers. Negatives and positives, but personally I'm happier overall.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 08:13:30
Good post cropper16.



27 Aug 2017 21:06:20
Honestly find this all hilarious. We get called bitter but in my eyes I day fickle. Iv seen people change from saying we are on our way to cups to being relegation fodder. We possibly are the most negative fans that i know.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 21:36:53
No one more negative then tranmere fans and people need to reliase squad needs time to adapt.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 22:49:56
No need to be negative we are the best team in the premier league at the moment possibly even Europe we would possibly have a tough game beating real Madrid but we have as many world class players as them. Sigurdsson would easily get in reals team and rooney, klassen, Keane. Bring it on. Come on you mighty Everton.



21 Aug 2017 23:55:27
Read that we have bid for perez from arsenal? . Obviously we missed out on him last time and he doesn't appear to have been given much chance. Thought he was wanting to go back to deportivo. Ed, any noises your way?

Ed, any truth in the bernat rumours?


{Ed025's Note - he looks the type that fits the bill cropper but at this time there is nothing to suggest any deal is forthcoming mate..

So it's just as easy for me to come back and have a go at you saying how people aren't able to ask pretty innocent questions anymore? I honestly don't see what I said that was wrong? At no point did I even say he was wrong nevermind have a go at him or anything. Literally only said that it was different from what I had read so wondered where he had heard it from.

Bluey. I'm not being funny, I'm fairly confident that I, I'm no way, gave him sh! t?! Are you saying that we are no longer allowed to discuss rumours any more? All I said is that the rumours iv heard are the opposite so wanted to know where he had heard his information.

Isn't he naturally a cb? Iv only ever seen him once and was cb at least. Even if that is the case then I guess it doesn't mean he can't play lb. However if he is a cb who is ok playing lb then I would prefer an actual lb. Not sure any of that makes sense haha.

Honestly don't think 41212 works too well. In my mind it plays out one of 2 ways:

1, the 2 cms play narrow meaning the only real width we have is from the full backs. This puts a lot of pressure on gana to help out the defence but ultimately we will be weak in the full back positions.

2, the 2 cms play wider which means there is a lot of space in the middle of the park.

Hasn't ripped it up at Chelsea but obviously plenty of players who have moved on from there and done alright. rahman wouldn't be my favourite though.

I do agree that we cab improve our transfer dealings but I think you may be over simplifying things a bit. Yes, I can name 5 lbs or more that I would like but that doesn't mean any of them are available. Even if they are available, it doesn't mean that they are interested in joining is. Even if they are interested in joining us it doesn't mean they can be bought for a reasonable amount. Even if they Are, it doesn't mean they are available for a reasonable wage. that's not getting into agents fees and everything else that's included in a transfer.

I'm expecting him round for tea later ed. Surely i can't be the only one he's asking for contributions off?


{Ed025's Note - he might just want your advice on the new ground cropper, i told him you know your stuff see mate..
