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.



26 May 2016 13:35:59
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 can't see what the problem is we have had one window and brought in some quality players. The scouting team will be working hard to find what we need so we just have to wait until the next window is open and see what happens.

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.}

Cant think of any PL team were the OX wouldn't be a great addition to their squad. Quality player, who I would love to see in EFC colours. Highly unlikely to happen but we can dream.

I would like to see RK give some of our current crop of young lads a bit of game time just to see if they can cut the mustard in the PL we know Holgate has a great future but maybe some of the youngsters are just as good. Its a real shame Galloway's loan hasn't turned out to what we hoped. If both Pennington and Browning can progress to the 1st team we save a bit of cash for SW to unearth another gem.

Thanks for the clarification Ed just wanted to know options obviously if he doesn't sign and a good offer comes in I expect us to sell. Nice to see we are already looking for replacements instead of the usual wait for the sale then panic buy.


{Ed002's Note - The club need to be realistic. If he were to agree to stay another year the club can then plan - but they are doing that early.}

Ed I understand Lukaku is looking for a move and totally understand that the club would not want to keep a player if he really wants to go. My question is do you know of any clubs that have not sold a player wishing to leave that season but held off for an additional season only to sell later for more than the original offer?


{Ed002's Note - Putting aside the money. Liverpool forced Suarez to stay - a player who is the lowest of the low. West Ham tried to force Dimitri Payet to stay only to have the player refuse to play. Schneiderlin was forced to stay another year at Southampton. Berahino stayed longer than he wanted at West Brom - not playing. Fabregas went on strike at Arsenal. It can get as ugly as Everton fans want. If he wants to leave and an acceptable offer is made, Everton can get in a good replacement and move on.}

{Ed002's Note - I am not a "fan" of any managers. Koeman is an absolute idiot to threaten his player in the public domain.}

Robles was going in the opposite direction to the deflected shot there was very little chance he would save that Williams actually looked like he was trying to head the ball but it did hit his arm and was a penalty to blame either is wrong in my opinion. RK subs didn't help but neither did some of the poor play it seems that 1st touches for quite a few players are not great, maybe its something the team should work on as a whole. ZI offside goal was not offside so we got lucky with that on the whole a much better performance than the weekend yes we may have won the game but we could quite as easily have lost so i'll take the point thank you very much and hope to see the boys continue to collect 3 more on the weekend.

Thanks for the update Ed hope he stays but fear the worst on a positive note we are proactively looking now rather than waiting for his final decision.


{Ed002's Note - The club understand the situation SA.}
