Any of the Eds heard anything about the Edouard rumours?


{Ed025's Note - i hear we have made enquiries bobslad, but thats as far as its gone at the moment mate..

1.) 27 Aug 2021 19:55:14
Cheers Ed.

2.) 27 Aug 2021 21:51:43
I’m no expert but I reckon that would be a great signing. Exactly what we need, and surely means Kean is off!



22 Jul 2021 12:09:48
Rumours about that Rafa would like Barkley back.


1.) 22 Jul 2021 12:22:18
Must have been in your dreams Bobslad. Moyes would like him if others (Lingard) , cannot be brouhht in.



29 Jun 2021 19:05:17
Seen a txt from Dominic King saying 3 year deal signed and sealed.


1.) 29 Jun 2021 21:16:53
Why would we sign Dominic King? Is he better than Joshua?



09 Jun 2021 15:34:34
Do any of the Eds think Nuno is still an option the powers that be may go for?


{Ed002's Note - Very much so.}

1.) 09 Jun 2021 15:48:17
Cheers Ed.

2.) 09 Jun 2021 20:14:09
I am getting the impression from the press and rumours that Nuno is wanting to pretty much take over whatever he club he gets the gig for. Staff, players, big transfer kitty, advisors, and so on. Doesn't feel like that is a fit for us.

{Ed0666's Note - Really and what have the managers that don’t have all the responsibly achieve for you mate? Maybe you need someone with full autonomy and someone whose fully invested and won’t dance under the pale moonlight when Real Madrid flutter their eyelids?

3.) 09 Jun 2021 20:39:10
I'm very much hoping Nuno gets the job did fantastic at Wolves and wasn't backed when they got into Europe I think he is just what we need.

4.) 09 Jun 2021 21:12:51
I'm not necessarily saying it's a bad thing. I've said in other posts I think Nuno is a decent choice.
Just not sure that is what we are looking for in Manager. And by we I mean the decision makers not the fans.

{Ed025's Note - if he brings pedro neto and jiminez with him he would be the right choice EFCONE..

5.) 09 Jun 2021 21:43:32
If he gets full responsibility, then I expect lots of dull signings, to miss out on a lot of good players and for Marcel Brands to walk or be sacked.



21 Mar 2021 18:32:13
Has anyone else heard Rumours Bramley Moor is a no go for now. I really hope not.


1.) 21 Mar 2021 19:13:43
Last I hear the government is looking to extend the 21day review period they have which was due to end on Wednesday.

Only hope that Joe Anderson arrest isn’t linked.

2.) 21 Mar 2021 20:07:37
Not sure it matters tbh. Not sure many people actually expected it to go ahead.

3.) 22 Mar 2021 14:23:13
It's normal procedure for projects of this size. How often does a government department make a decision in 21 days? Probably have not even opened the package yet.

4.) 22 Mar 2021 14:43:50
i would be VERY VERY surprised given the amount of money spent and the time taken to get to this point.

5.) 22 Mar 2021 19:33:20
Bobslad, there was a message floating around yesterday saying that JA and someone named Colin Chong were expected to be arrested at some point this week. Nice to know that you can get a heads up on being pre-arrested if you work for the council!
I'd take it with a pinch of salt tbh. There's been a lot of money spent already, the actual project will generate plenty of cash and jobs for the area so I think it will go ahead. Just my own opinion mind you, I haven't a clue how these things work. If we can prove that all the back handers went to mates of current Tory MP's then there is absolutely nothing to worry about at all mate.

6.) 22 Mar 2021 20:58:48
It could be to do with all the houses that were compulsory purchased around Anfield to allow them to build their new stand. How’s that for conspiracy theory. 😂.

7.) 23 Mar 2021 14:43:20
I don't know much about the rumours etc, but isn't Colin Chong the guy in charge of the stadium project? If he is involved in anything then we may well find the stadium is in trouble. I sincerely hope not, it would be a new low in our storied search for a new home - and there have been a lot already.

8.) 23 Mar 2021 19:31:54
JA had to report for renewal of bail conditions it's set prior to release, and do honestly see Everton risking their new stadium and millions/ billions over a bung to a dodgy minor politicians. Besides everyone likes a juicy bit of gossip and like to make it sound juicier, do you not think the news hounds at the echo would be all over this!

9.) 22 Mar 2021 17:25:50
It was liverpool fans doing what liverpool fans do and while telling the whole world they don't care about us start spreading rumours which people believe and Swan I'm not sure who you speak to but all the blues I talk to expect it to go ahead.

10.) 24 Mar 2021 19:22:26
It will go ahead, too many benefits for the City of Liverpool for it to be pulled at this stage. A delay is likely however.

11.) 25 Mar 2021 11:29:01
I have a feeling that he asked for more time so now they have took control of the city they will look like the good guys when they pass it saying this is what we want for the north.

Looks like Rondon on his way.


1.) 29 Aug 2021 20:25:24
Yep just reopened talks apparently.

2.) 29 Aug 2021 20:28:42
Would be such an overwhelming end to the transfer window if we sign him, got this years Ballon d’Or written all over him.

3.) 29 Aug 2021 20:32:56
Hopefully he is one of a few.

4.) 29 Aug 2021 21:22:04
To be fair, we have a young nailed on starter in DCL so getting a prem striker with a bit of experience who's happy to warm the bench seems a decent solution for us with our current spending limits. We also have Richy who can play down the middle if needed.

5.) 29 Aug 2021 21:42:34
I don’t quite get it. What’s wrong with Simms or dobbin? Surely they deserve a shot at the first team if we need options?

6.) 29 Aug 2021 22:11:04
I think Simms and possibly Dobbin will be loaned so they can get more game time at a better level than sitting on our bench and the U23’s
If we do go for Rondon I hope it’s not silly wages and a short term deal with an option to extend so we don’t get stuck with another high earning bench warmer.

7.) 29 Aug 2021 22:28:54
Simms not good enough. Yet. Plods around waiting for the ball to be passed to him. he'd have to get 30 goals a season to warrant the little else he does for the team.
Reminds me of Dowell albeit in a different position.

8.) 29 Aug 2021 22:38:25
Rondon record pretty decent. He’s 31 and will be cheap. Plays similar to DCL so wouldn’t need to change style of play. Not a bad signing to be honest. Toon fans loved him as he gave 100%.
Over 30 international goals too.

9.) 29 Aug 2021 22:42:11
Agree good thinks dobbs or simms do deserve a chance at somestage but what puzzles me is why isn't anyone from the reserves or even under 18s getting on the 1st team bench or even get a game or 2 against likes of Huddersfield or even in few weeks time against qpr in carabeo cup.

10.) 29 Aug 2021 23:32:38
Well said Gingerdan.

11.) 29 Aug 2021 22:15:34
Not sure what you mean by deserve a shot. Simms is injured, and Dobbin missed a lot of football last season through injury.
Both have trained with the first team at various points and as yet have clearly not shown quite enough to get a shot.
Rondon coming in has no bearing on whether they will get a shot, he is just a back up that is all.
Dobbin/ Simms would be better served with a loan that being sat on our bench not getting minutes.

12.) 29 Aug 2021 22:15:39
He's done OK in poor Newcastle team couple years ago. Short term cheap solution who will cause problems last 20mins and reckon will be a good pro who rafa knows from before (same as Townsend)

13.) 30 Aug 2021 08:18:17
EFC1 I mean why do we need to recruit a striker? What’s the point of having the under 23s if they never step up.
Simms did well on loan at Blackpool but was unaware he was injured.
Dobbin scored in pre season and has been banging them in for the under 23s.
How are they going to get in the first team if we recruit a 31yr old striker who’s stats aren’t that great?
That’s what I meant by having a shot.

14.) 30 Aug 2021 08:30:43
He always managed to come on and cause us no end of trouble so I don't mind him signing as a cheap backup.

15.) 30 Aug 2021 09:44:40
Troy Deeney still around? He’s a player linked before. Has Victor Anichebe retired yet? Lol.



28 Aug 2021 10:35:43
Does anyone know what is wrong with Godfrey?




29 Jul 2021 11:08:56
Do any of the Eds think we are still holding out for Dumfries then moving on to next choice of it doesn't come off?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 29 Jul 2021 14:02:24
Thanks Ed, thought we might have tried to get a right back in.



16 Jul 2021 07:45:59
Looks like Carsley is getting the England U21 job. Wish him all the best, always came across as a decent fella.




14 Jul 2021 14:41:13
Usmanov's nephew now on the board of directors. Nice words spoken by him today.


1.) 14 Jul 2021 17:18:28
It’s a positive sign I know he’s worked for us for a few years now but it makes you wonder if his uncle will get involved at some point probably when the new stadium starts to take off.
Hopefully funding the Rafalution UTFT COYB.

Would any of the Eds know how much we are likely to receive in a tribunal for Small, cheers.


{Ed002's Note - It should not go to tribunal as it is in the best interest of both clubs to agree compensation between them. If it does it will be a structured fee with additional payments if he plays for the first team, gets an internation call up etc.. Pehaps somewhere between £1M and £2 in total.}

Spot on Bluemike, frustrated when we let teams gain confidence by getting more and more possession. But give the lads their due that they kept working until the end.

Good post Bluejohn. As Blueboy says it would be nice to see some youth coming through but that has been a failure as far as I can see as they never seem good enough.
