It is still in Evertons own hands, time to worry when it is not.


{Ed0666's Note - that’s an excellent point you make Baz. You could have a Newcastle-eque renaissance and be home and dry in 3 games.

1.) 27 Apr 2022 19:35:37
Easy in hindsight but who knows if Benitez could have turned it.



24 Apr 2022 02:51:56
Anything can happen in the Derby, by all accounts it will be a landslide, but football is a funny old game, it will be up there with the biggest shocks in recent times, should Everton pick up a point or three.

Logic says a home win, but this is Everton, let you down one week, then pull an unbelievable result the next.

Everyone wrote us off against utd, everyone went for a thrashing against City, both times Everton turned up, and only a blatant handball not given cost us a chance of a penalty.

We are fighting for our lives now, keep our discipline, cut out the stupid mistakes that keep costing us and you just never know.

We have nothing to lose, already been written off for the game, there will be more Liverpool fans slightly nervous than Evertonians.

It all comes down to putting your chances away.

Keep the faith fellow Evertonians, you just never know.

We say anything can happen in a derby but for the last 30 years that's just been us clutching at straws. Time after time they roll us over and as they are now better and us worse than ever we need to cluch a haystack of straws.

2.) 24 Apr 2022 15:58:49
Rick we won there last season 2 nil, so not impossible, already shown it can be done.



05 Apr 2022 00:31:30
This is it Wednesday, our whole season and future has come to one of our biggest games for a very long time, lose this and I just do not see us recovering.

Forget the school of science, this is a dogs of war performance needed, win ugly, draw ugly, but do not lose, get the job done, no matter how we do it, Burnley will be coming at us, they will throw the kitchen sink at us, they will fight for every single 50/ 50 ball, we have to cut out mistakes, keep it simple and get fighters on the pitch.

Keane suspended could be our first bit of good fortune, the next two players I mention will no doubt receive groans from some of you, but I feel these two players are what we need on Wednesday, the first one would be Begovic in goal, Burnley will hit us at set pieces, I feel Begovic will control his area more, come for the crosses and settle the defence in front of him.

The second one I would include would be Rondon, he knows what it takes to be in a battle, I would use Calvert-Lewin as an impact sub if needed, but you know Rondon will battle in attack, not the greatest of strikers, but will certainly put himself about and scrap, some might say Dobbin, but with their big centre half's, I just feel like Rondon would compete more.

Anyway that's my thoughts and hope for once we get a result, when it is needed as a very big 6 pointer.


1.) 05 Apr 2022 07:03:26
I'm glad your not the manager bud as no matter what the media like to say Pickford had been probably our best player for 2 years so I have no idea why you want him dropped as for Rondon why just why would you start him if you wanted to change it a bit play Richarlison uo top with Girdon on thr right and Gray on thr left they have two commanding center backs in the air so why put another target man up top you might as well say right keep it on the floor.
It does baffle me why some fans still have it in for Pickford it's almost like they believe everything the likes of talksport sky ect say.

2.) 05 Apr 2022 08:43:57
Pickford makes one mistake every game which either results in a goal or a card or an injury. he is terrible with his feet, the shortest pair of hands bar keppa. that goal from Cresswell, any half-decent keeper saves that with ease.

3.) 05 Apr 2022 08:50:06
Totally agree with the Begovic shout Bazwil. He is generally a great shot stopper - and I think those Hollywood saves are why lots of fans overlook the other issues. He rarely comes for crosses and when he does he flaps or slaps at the ball. He makes erratic decisions and this is always exacerbated by emotional circumstances like Wednesday will be. Our defenders are very poor but he does not help, and it was noticeable how much calmer everything was when Begovic stepped in for the clean sheet v Newcastle.
I wouldn't play rondon, really for the reasons you've said! They are big centre halves and think their preference would be playing against big centre forward in a battle - we'd be better off playing Richy up there and having him, gray and Gordon making runs in behind and in channels to try and stretch them.

4.) 05 Apr 2022 09:15:03
Pickford has been our best player for some considerable time however, I think without a decent defence and the prospect of balls being thrown into the box to a large centre forward then I personally would play Begovic as well. Rondon is a no though as he doesn't bully anyone anymore has lost his pace and his work rate isn't great, having said that DCL at the moment isn't any better so not sure if I would play either. I think Branthwaite needs to start but not sure who I would pair him with. If Seamus is still injured with Keane out and limited centre mids then we may have to play Holgate in the midfield again which may be a blessing in disguise. Either way this is going to be Franks hardest selection to date. As said this is possibly are most important match for a very long while and we need to get something out of it "squeeky bum time" if you ask me.

5.) 05 Apr 2022 11:00:56
Pick ford been our best player for couple seasons now, but begovic has also been a career no.1, so would feel safe with either between sticks. Branthwaite has to start alongside Godfrey. He's a unit and will deal with their set pieces while Godfrey has the pace to drive out from defence. Gordon has to start. He's been best player this season and as for rondon, I'd rather just keep DCL up top. He will come good. Not convinced he is quite 100% fit atm.

6.) 05 Apr 2022 11:56:52
Guessing the Begovic lovers were not sat in the lower GLadys v Newcastle at 0-0 with 11 men he was telling us to calm down over the amount of time he was taking over his goal kicks and constantly kicked it long straight to Dan Burns and can anyone tell me what mistake Pickford made v West Ham as you said he makes a mistake every game and gives a goal away my guess is if he leaves in the Summer you will moan that he has gone as i said some of our fans are embarrassing.

7.) 05 Apr 2022 13:31:00
Didn’t begovic keep a clean sheet against Newcastle and we won the game 1-0?
Not sure what it matters him telling fans to calm down if he kept a clean sheet?

8.) 05 Apr 2022 15:58:38
I get where people are not wanting Rondon, believe me would be Calvert-Lewin every time for me, however whether injury or mind elsewhere, Calvert-Lewin is just not doing it at the moment, a kick up the backside and coming off the bench might just do the trick, by then a couple of their players might have picked up yellow cards, start Calvert -Lewin and they will kick lumps out of him early doors.

That is why I would start Rondon, let him get among them, take the knocks, and leave space for Richarlison, same will happen if Richarlison plays as the lone striker, will get targeted early on, that’s why I would use Rondon to start with, if they double up on Richarlison, they are leaving Rondon free, by having Rondon there, the whole defending by Burnley changes, get to ht then throw Calvert-Lewin on for the second half.

9.) 05 Apr 2022 16:26:42
Gingerdan the point is it was at 0-0 we needed to win and he was time-wasting and when the fans told him to hurry up he told us to calm down and not sure what a ean sheet has to do with it. It baffles me how our fans can hate Pickford when he's been our best player for 2 years pathetic.

10.) 05 Apr 2022 17:01:04
Who said they hate Pickford? I think most posting have said we rate him but would prefer Begovic for this particular match. We are lucky to have two very competent Keepers which cannot be said for anywhere else on the pitch with the exception of Wing players.

11.) 05 Apr 2022 17:22:38
Lamprdstheman - “not sure what a clean sheet has to do with it”
Are you serious?
Clean sheet means guaranteed atleast 1pt from game.
Last 13 games we’ve had 2 clean sheets and both of them were when begovic in goal.
I like Pickford good shot stopper and good long ball distribution. Personally wouldn’t drop him but can clearly see why other fans calling for begovic to start.

12.) 05 Apr 2022 18:30:34
Pickford is a good shot stopper, at set pieces, Begovic is better at dealing with crosses and organising his defence.

Burnley will be looking at set pieces to target us, that is why I would put Begovic in for this game.

13.) 05 Apr 2022 18:43:42
You used the clean sheet against Newcastle like it was some sort of landmark what about the other 4 we have kept this season in the league I'm guessing they were not down to Pickford or as I was taught we win as a team and lose as a team or are you saying Begovic beat Newcastle all by himself.

14.) 05 Apr 2022 19:58:07
Lamprdstheman - I’d stop now as you’re embarrassing yourself.
Of course it was a landmark it was only our 5th clean sheet of the season and had taken 27 games to get it!

The other 4 clean sheets were Pickford totally agree, but he’s played 26 games in the league! 4 clean sheets from 26 is terrible.

Begovic has played twice in league for us and 1 clean sheet.

Simple maths shows that’s a better return than Pickford.

15.) 06 Apr 2022 08:04:22
Rondon is useless. May as well start preparing for the championship if we start him.

16.) 06 Apr 2022 09:11:25
Unfortunately a goalkeeper is only as good as his defence, and because they're rubbish it makes pickford look as bad! I'd keep him in.



08 Feb 2022 15:25:11
Been a while since we had the luxury of players to choose from, Frank has done a great job, simplifying the passing, retaining posession and making every single player feel wanted.

My only concern tonight is Pickford staying focused, and not getting engaged with the Newcastle fans, cost us a few years back at their place, he needs to not raise to any bait.

Both teams will feel confident, if Everton do what they did last Saturday, they have a great chance of picking up three points.




24 Jan 2022 19:06:23
Never thought I would say this, but we need to look if there is an option to bring Barkley back onloan, now Doucoure is out again, we need someone there, like him or not, Barkley could be worth an option.


1.) 24 Jan 2022 19:08:56
But he’s garbage?

{Ed025's Note - should fit in well then..

2.) 24 Jan 2022 20:41:03
Take your pick Swan, Barkley or Iwobi.

3.) 24 Jan 2022 21:23:05
I'll take Swan!

4.) 24 Jan 2022 21:28:23
Probably Iwobi. At least he’s really slow so has an excuse for not being able to move well with the ball

Barkley actually has pace but can’t do anything with anything

He’s Will Hughes with better hair and less talent.

Ed25, when you have a midfield like ours, I think I would turn back to Pickford as well, none of the midfielders last season offered to be open to a pass from our defenders, we gave so many silly goals away last season, with losing the ball with dithering on the ball, with lack of options to play a pass, quite a few of our defenders turned and played the ball to either another defender, or our goalkeeper.

If we can get our midfield sorted and keep to a steady defence without having to chop and change every week in defence, I honestly believe Godfrey will kick on again, no matter what happens though, our midfielders have simply got to give an option, for our defenders to pass to.


{Ed025's Note - I agree that our midfield did not help at all baz they were nothing short of awful. But sometimes you have to take the bull by the horns mate at least try and play football. I’m not giving up on Ben just yet but he has to step up to the plate if he wants to play at this level imo..

I am normally with you all the way Ed25, but I think on the Godfrey one, I have to disagree mate, cannot disagree that his form dipped after coming back from injury, but my defence in the player I will list below.

Since coming into Everton, he has had to play right back, centre half, left back, pretty much everywhere, one week he has Keane alongside him, following week Mina, then back to Keane and Holgate, with Godfrey switched to a full back.

My personal feeling is Godfrey and Tarkowski might be the future pairing of our centre halves, depending how they both perform, they need to get a run of games together and kept in their centre back positions, on doing so, Godfrey will be stronger and better.

I know it is a bit harsh on Kean and Holgate, but with Mina a liability of playing a run of games, I personally think that Godfrey is for me our best centre half and hope for the future, not ideal but he is versatile as well to slot into the back four, if we hit an injury crisis in defence.

Godfrey is the one I would certainly keep, and see if he can get back to his early promise, too much of a utility player for me, to let go. sorry Ed25.


{Ed025's Note - it’s all about opinions in the end baz. He started off great but has regressed into a very negative player. When he gets the ball his first thought is to turn backwards and give it to Pickford mate. That may be symptom of the way we are playing but as a professional footballer you have to have more about you than that imo..

I am hoping Chelsea throw their hat into the ring, better choice of players we could get, not often swap deals go through these days, however we could negotiate either bringing a player in onloan and a possible signing as well from Chelsea.

Pretty sure something could be worked out for Gallagher Pulasic and Richarlison.

Wishful thinking.

If I had half a Day to list everything wrong with Bill Kenwrights time at Everton, I simply would still not have enough time or space to do so on here.

Each to their own opinions, I will just respect and leave it at that.

If Richarlison goes for £51 Million, will Merson blame Spurs for ruining the transfer window, very much doubt it, never heard the guy go on one, when City paid a large amount for Grealish.

I was going to ask Ed002 a question that seems to have been already covered above by Ed, but With not knowing the ins and outs of ffp, and the yearly three year turn over, it seems to me we are over our ffp and need to sell Richarlison before Thursday, to show up on the current balance sheet.

If we are fine which I doubt, then selling Richarlison to show up for our balance sheet for the next year surely gives us a stronger hand in the next set of finances.

If we were fine, it makes no sense to me to try and push a sale through, when we could just add it to the next lot of figures.

So on my basis of thinking Ed am I right in thinking we simply have to sell before Thursday evening, no other logic to be in such a rush, especially when other clubs are interested.


{Ed002's Note - Everton need to get back on track. Thursday is the end of the FFP season so that is what makes it relevant. Right now, the accounts will yet again not look great. The club will again embarrass themselves with pitiful excuses. It needs fixing, but new owners will help.}

No chance of loaning the 4 players from Chelsea Gingerdan, we can only loan 1 player from the same club.

The others could happen though. :-)
