If anyone fancies a laugh take a look at the emerging whispers on sly if we get half the players we are being rumored with we would have the best squad in the PL if not Europe. As you said though Ed its nice to be in the situation for a change.


1.) 16 Jun 2016 17:06:14
ano that today whisper had Lucas moura on it.

Hypothetical one here if Zlatan goes to MU do you think Rooney would be surplus to requirements would we be his first port of call.


{Ed025's Note - i would doubt it sa, he will play one more season at utd then end his career in the MLS i suspect mate..

1.) 26 May 2016 18:30:48
Rooney definitely playing at Utd next season. May leave come Jan but he'll start August at Utd.

{Ed025's Note - it would come down to money i think sa and that would make it a non starter, my feeling is that he will play one more season with utd then end his career in the MLS mate..

1.) 26 May 2016 16:05:56
If we are looking to offer £200 million wages to Hart, ok paper talk, but I would not rule Everton out of signing Rooney as his wages could be met, call me a romantic but I have a gut feeling, Rooney will be coming back to Everton.



01 Mar 2016 10:37:06
Here's a hypothetical one for consideration. If we vote to leave the EU, Will we be in a better position than most clubs as we only have a few EU nationals in the squad? I am presuming that all Foreign players would need apply for Visa's to remain in the country.


{Ed025's Note - thats something i have not even thought about sa, but i cant see it being a problem for players who are already here, but maybe future signings may be different mate..

1.) 01 Mar 2016 11:28:28
I've posted the same question as the OP on a few occasions during the past year or so, but most fans don't seem to have any particular views on it.
I tend to agree with Ed025: foreign players who are well established in the Premier League shouldn't have a problem in being allowed to stay on, but future signings may well have to meet much more stringent conditions. Time will tell on this.
A more interesting situation could be if the UK leaves the EU being followed by Scotland going independent - where would that leave future Scottish signings by English clubs?
Also, what about foreign managers/ coaches coming into English football?

2.) 01 Mar 2016 13:39:35
I suppose it will come down to what happens with all EU nationals already in the UK. I can't see footballers being given special dispensation to remain.

As for Scotland going independent, then I presume they would be classed as EU nationals if they are allowed to join the EU that is (it would be really funny if they were rejected by the EU though) . I would imagine though any Scottish people that have been living in the remaining home union countries for over a certain time period may be given the option to become a UK national.

{Ed002's Note - It is not actually clear what would happen if the UK left the EU. There would certainly not be any overnight change but the eventual position would likely be a need for work permits and residence permits. In terms of existing EU citizens already working in the UK, there is no plan but I would think an amnesty would be the likely decision followed by a quota system of some type. A good question but no firm answer I am afraid.}

Just been reading the European Coefficient explanation. There is a good possibility that England may lose the fourth CL spot to Italy if the English teams perform as last season. Once it's gone it would take a remarkable change around for England to get the place back. It looks to me that the PL is being extremely shortsighted in the way PL clubs in Europa are treated.

We all know that CL qualifiers get a much bigger financial gain than EL but as the two tournaments are linked it would make sense for PL to help EL qualified teams as much as possible.

As most agree that being in the EL effects premier league form, some teams are at a distinct disadvantage being in the competition. As we have very little chance of a top 4 place and the gap is growing between the haves and have not's, I do think that it would be quite ironic if we lost a CL place due to the so called top 4 manipulating the transfer markets to their own ends.


1.) 29 Sep 2015 18:35:57
good points well made, mate.

2.) 30 Sep 2015 13:18:36
Offer more prize money for the el and stop 3rd placed teams from the cl from entering and it could be a completion worth taking serious.

{Ed007's Note - I'm interested in why people think playing in the EL puts teams at a disadvantage in the league?}

3.) 01 Oct 2015 10:02:01
Ed IMO the EL takes a significant toll on the players mentally and physically for teams with larger squads this is not such an issue but for those with smaller squads having to manager rest periods and injuries seems to affect PL form. I don't know why but stats seem to support this. You would expect the CL to have a similar effect but the travelling is not as much as the CL consists mainly of the major teams in Spain Germany Italy England France and Holland so although there will be countries that will be a fair distance you will be less likely to have more than one in a group.

{Ed007's Note - See that's what I can't understand, CL teams get the same amount of days between matches as EL teams, is it because it's not worth millions of £s that English teams treat the competition with such nonchalance? If the money was nearer CL levels would teams take it more seriously?
If you beat Liverpool on Sunday and their fans said it was because of their EL hangover would you accept that and say they're probably right?}

4.) 01 Oct 2015 17:08:43
CL teams usually have bigger squads so can rotate players more and still get results especially during the league and FA cups fixture periods. Agreed there is the same amount of days rest but usually the travel time is not as long for a CL fixture.I do think it is about the money PL money is greater than EL money so staying as high as you can in the PL is more beneficial.

And yes if we win on Saturday the EL hangover excuse may come out and yes I would accept that and say they are probably right. However,if they think the EL group match is more important than the derby that's up to them because if we win!!

Good result last night but what is clearly evident is how good RK is at managing team tactics during matches. That 1st half was not good I actually thought both Ross and Kev were shocking. I don't think Kev plays well down the left I always preferred him on the right, that's where he played really well for DM when out wide. Having said that RK certainly knows his players as once he was put in behind Rom his game picked up really well. I also love RKs honesty about our performances in post match interviews. Just not good enough in the 1st half and better in the second but still room for improvement. Rom also gave a good interview with Bainesy its all about the team now. The future is bright. COYB.


1.) 13 Sep 2016 11:46:26
I think Rom gave his most truthful interview ever last night and he came across as genuine to me. He didn't gloat about his first hat trick for us instead he actually criticised his first half performance saying he just was not good enough. I would go as far as saying he did that for 2 reasons, 1) he is learning that he has to work hard for us and 2) as a mark of respect to RK.

2.) 13 Sep 2016 20:18:28
It's his second actually young boys away in a 4-1 win.



31 Aug 2016 23:00:56
Not great fan of Merson but had a chucckle when he said he hopes the Sissoko deal doesn't get done in time.




30 Aug 2016 09:25:55
Looks like we may well not get any additional signings this window. Seems to me that most of the media is getting over excited again with some of the rumours floating about. I would like to see an additional striker brought in, just can't see it happening. Very happy with what we have done so far though.


1.) 30 Aug 2016 09:51:55
we will get more signings before COP Wednesday, guaranteed.

2.) 30 Aug 2016 10:04:58
Things are going on. But as usual Everton do it quietly. Yes we have made 4 excellent signings but I expect one ot two more.



02 Aug 2016 17:48:38
Well now Gueye has joined, a very good signing IMO and statement of what is expected form the squad. There may well be more on the way. Funny that the papers have stated both Man City and Chelsea have given us take it or leave it ultimatums. I thought they intimated Stones and Lukaku were both almost gone. I hope we keep both under RK I think they will both significantly improve as players. Happy days ahead my fellow blues.




27 Jun 2016 09:06:49
Question for the ED's. With the up and coming move out of the EU do you think if will affect EU players with their consideration of moving back to an EU club. From what is being said all the EU citizens currently working within the UK will not be required to leave. As footballers often transfer between EU and UK clubs I expect once they leave they will find it very difficult to get back into the UK if they are not established internationals. Also do you think the UK teams will be positively or adversely affected and why.


{Ed001's Note - it will make little, if any, difference for a couple of years at least. After that, well it will make little difference then either.}

1.) 27 Jun 2016 12:22:52
Exactly Ed001 a commonsense approach at last and without getting into the Politics I would say that applies all across the board. People really are not stopping to think. You would think the majority of them never had an education.

{Ed001's Note - it is the millenium bug hysteria all over again mate. People just like to panic over nothing these days.}

2.) 27 Jun 2016 12:54:52
Yep. . . 'Project fear' strikes again!

I'm with you on that Del boy has the quality going forward and can be unplayable at times, unfortunately his work rate and defensive quality needs improvement. If he can't get a decent amount of playing time with us then maybe a loan move to a club that would play him week in week out would benefit both him and EFC. Definitely would not want to sell him (unless for stupid money) as he has great potential.

There have been and will be plenty of yellows that should be reds when you look back at them in slow motion from different angles if the ref sees it and punishes the player at the time then IMO the matter is settled. If you start banging out punishments retrospectively for things that occur on the pitch after the match then your opening up a can of worms.

I still think there is some mileage left in Ross although if a big enough offer came in I would take it but certainly not a swap plus cash deal for Sissoko.

I think the whole team is starting to look fitter. It will be interesting to see who RK plays when Gueye is back from the ACN. Davies certainly through his hat in the ring yesterday. I also thought a back 3 with Baines and Coleman giving us the width we need is a much better formation than trying to play a 442 with a winger supporting the fullbacks. It gave both Ross and Kev the freedom to counter more efficiently which they thrived from yet we had defensive cover when required.

Have to agree with Degsy on Kev, He was in great form down the right with Coleman whne playing under DM. When RM took over his consistency went down the pan alomg with his form and fitness. Under RK he has gradually got his fitness back and starting to get his form back. I don't think he is fully fit but over the last couple of game he is starting to show his true capabilities. Why sell him its unlikely that we will get a better player for the money we will recuperate and if he continues to play like he did yesterday then why would you want to get rid anyway?

Feeling calm already WB but the money men wouldn't let this happen. I like the idea though. Here's another thought Labour gets in at the next election and instigates the no person in a company can earn more than 200% more than the lowest paid we could then see the tea ladies at some clubs earning more than the PM now that would be funny.

I am happy with the business we have done so far and would be happy to wait for the summer for any more additions if RK and SW think its appropriate. For me any more additions this window would be jus icing on the cake

Ed002 has his opinion he quite clear he is not happy with the way some Everton fans behave both on this forum and out and about. At the end of the day if that's what he thinks there is no use whinging about it. It won't change his mind so why get involved in a slanging match.


{Ed025's Note - exactly sa, he does provide us with some really good information mate and we dont want to lose that so if you dont agree with what he writes then just dont read it..simples..
