So James goes on a little holiday which now means he has to isolate again. Guy is taking the p. out of the club big time.
Can't now train with the first team, and will miss the next two games.
get rid of this freeloader, and before you all come out saying how wonderful he is, and but he's our best player. No he isn't. To be our best player he has to be committed to the team and the club.
This guy is a joke, is it any wonder absolutely nobody came in for him. Oh no wait Newcastle thought about it apparently. says it all really.


{Ed025's Note - i have to say brass its hard to disagree with you mate..

1.) 07 Sep 2021 19:24:43
What a waste of a player, I should hope we are not paying him.

{Ed025's Note - we will be though ant..

2.) 07 Sep 2021 19:56:45
Well if the club allowed him to go to Ibiza its the clubs fault. If James went without permission and will now miss two games why can't the club fine him?

3.) 07 Sep 2021 20:00:06
Is it not the clubs fault as well, why on earth would they allow him to go? maybe he is entitled to go on holiday
Do any of us really know what's going on with him, it has all been a bit strange since he has been here.

4.) 07 Sep 2021 23:34:35
Echo reporting he’s back in training tomorrow.
Assuming he’s jabbed, he won’t need to self isolate.

5.) 08 Sep 2021 00:21:54
I'm not to sure, how high the bar is in relation to misconduct, but for me, he must be near the point where his contract might be cancelled, I don't know if this is possible, but hope the club are looking at that solution to this man's behaviour.

6.) 08 Sep 2021 03:19:52
This whole saga appears to have been handled badly and we are all guilty of having opinions not knowing all the facts

We know James has been told to find another club but was he sat down and told

James - we are in a mess due to FFP regulations and need to reduce the wage bill and we'd appreciate it if you helped us by finding another club

or was it

James - F O Find another club. We don't want you

Why did it get out to the press? Did Rafa want to be seen as the Big Man or did someone else at Everton leak it to attract possible suitors. Maybe James team leaked it for their own purposes

We simply don't know but relations between James and Rafa/ the club seem to be strained

Now we have 2 totally different stories about James being not available for next couple of games or he is returning to training today. Who knows which, if any, are true and they are both on the Goodison News website so even they don't know what is happening.

7.) 08 Sep 2021 09:05:55
I hope he goes yes he is quality but at the end of the day am sick of players coming in an not fighting for the badge. He is a perfect example happy to take massive wages and give very little back. If the columbian national team has knocked him back then obv he is a liability. Rafa has us on the right path imo so if he thinks he isn't the player for us he isn't good riddance.

8.) 08 Sep 2021 15:51:45
He obviously went on a holiday with the blessing of the club or we'd be hearing about a massive fine for him. A lot of us seem to have the claws out for James right now, rightly or wrongly, but let's get all the facts out before condemning anyone.
Is Ibiza on the red list? Has James had his jabs? Does he need to isolate or can he just get straight back to training? We all know that the club has told him that he is surplus to requirements, if he isn't in Rafa's plans then he won't be anywhere near the squad anyway.

{Ed025's Note - it just doesn,t sit right with me BP, his commitment and fitness has been in question since the start for me, he came here for a pay day as far as im concerned and even though his ability has never been in doubt his willingness to give his all certainly has, i cant wait to see the back of him if im honest mate..

9.) 08 Sep 2021 18:39:58
Could not agree more Ed. Literally cannot wait until he is out of our football club. Fairly sure finch farm hasn't been closed during the international break, and if the guy had any interest in playing football for Everton he'd have been training rather than sitting on a yacht smoking that electric bifter.

10.) 08 Sep 2021 23:14:45
BP. Why on earth would the club agree to him going on hol, he has not been on intl duty over the summer, we have jp, dcl who have been euro final, ricky olympic final yet they are here playing. James is a joke of a player. In this league u have to be tough and move quick, without these 2 qualities you can have all the technical ability in the world but you will not make it.

He knows he is not going to get a glam move so will take us for every penny. I am hoping we have breach of contract clauses in there and he hits one.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is contractually difficult.}

11.) 08 Sep 2021 23:55:16
Clearly ed. I have no idea how contracts work and i might sound stupid but surley surley no club would have a contract that will allow a player to just take a holiday mid season?

{Ed002's Note - No, his contract won't make provision for that.}

12.) 09 Sep 2021 10:05:51
Toffeeblue, it's not entirely unheard of that players are allowed to go on a little jaunt during international week. I'm guessing he's gone with permission from the club as I've seen no reports that anyone at EFC is unhappy with him being away or that he is getting fined.
I understand that, ed025. I was just pointing out that the club are involved in this decision too so it was wrong to blame just one party. Especially when it appears that we only have half of the story.



31 Aug 2021 17:24:55
Sorry just can't get excited by the idea of signing a 31 year old who has a goal 1 in 4 strike rate.
Agree we need a back up for DCL, but feel we should be doing better than this.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 17:28:09
Not many who are better want to come and sit in the bench whilst Dom starts every game.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 17:40:12
The joys of being an Everton fan.
Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs, West Ham, Wolves, Aston Villa, Leicester, Leeds and Arsenal (struggling so far) have better teams. Richie will not be a happy boy 😄.

{Ed025's Note - but we have the new "dogs of war" pauly, and will give them all a game mate..

3.) 31 Aug 2021 17:41:28
I don't want a guy who is happy to sit on the bench. I want a guy who is looking to challenge DCL for the starter position.
That's the trouble with this club, we have players who turn up happy to park there arse on the bench while picking up a nice wedge.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 17:56:58
Sorry Ed025, after several years of dross I was really hoping this season would deliver some excitement but Rafa will struggle with our waferthin squad and that's a shame. He deserves better!

{Ed025's Note - dont write us off just yet pauly, guts, determination and fight will get you a long way in this league mate, and we have some very good players as well, this is a season of consolidation considering our finances but i have to say im enjoying it at the moment...long may that continue..

5.) 31 Aug 2021 17:57:37
Not any more mate.

6.) 31 Aug 2021 18:01:14
I don't think we can afford any of them though brass.

7.) 31 Aug 2021 18:01:20
We can’t afford that guy at the moment mate. That’s why we’re signing Rondon.

8.) 31 Aug 2021 18:04:39
I hope you're right Ed, as we are going to need them.

{Ed025's Note - i feel there is more about us than there has been for a long while pauly, im not claiming we are brilliant or even a threat to the top 4, but what i see is players with pride who want to be here mate...and that excites me..

9.) 31 Aug 2021 19:05:38
JB Jebbison going out on loan. Could we not have made a better loan deal?

10.) 31 Aug 2021 19:07:34
I know what your saying Ed, but a couple of injuries/ bans and we will struggle big time.

{Ed025's Note - i get that woburn mate but hopefully the back up squad will step up to the plate, rafa seems to be getting a tune out of the first team so why not..

11.) 31 Aug 2021 19:41:45
One word; Huddersfield.

{Ed025's Note - we beat them mate..



27 Aug 2021 12:32:13
"Neymar pushes for Everton transfer"
Got a bit excited when I first saw that. Then I read the article. 🤪.


1.) 27 Aug 2021 17:39:55
We can go for greenwood or rashford now Ronaldo is there.

2.) 27 Aug 2021 18:39:50
We could Charlie and probably end up with Lingard or Martial.



19 Aug 2021 17:29:48
Lewandowski says he wants a new challenge. Well there's no bigger challenge than Everton, so welcome.


1.) 19 Aug 2021 19:47:10
We can wish Brass, think deadline day will bring a few supprises for us Blues, we keep our cards close to our chest, here, s hoping mate.



04 Aug 2021 14:31:20
Good news chaps. Watched Richarlison play for Brazil in the semi final against Mexico, and he had a scowling face all through that. So it's not just because he is playing for Everton. 👍😂💙.


1.) 04 Aug 2021 17:04:23
Love it mate.

2.) 04 Aug 2021 19:08:36
It is the guys countenance. My family and friends have asked me what's up for years when I am just relaxed. It is what it is and that is nought.

Why Branthwaite? Lad hasn't been here long enough to make a decision to sell. Looking at him and Godfrey as being our future centre back pairing.

Oh the arrogance of football supporters. Of course he would want to go to Spurs, I mean it has to be better than little old Everton. What bollocks, he's leaving Juve because they don't want him, and he will go to the team that makes him the best offer.

Agree Dan, at least he didn't go running off to one of the top teams and sit on their bench. To be fair to the lad I think he sees Southampton as a stepping stone to better things.
We shall see.

Dan the club could have 100m to spend on transfers, but because of FFP they cant. They need to get rid before they buy, think everyone understands that now. But it doesn't mean they don't have the funds for transfers. FFP is now making it almost impossible for clubs like Everton to compete with the so called top six. Which is why it is imperative that the club get back into European competition, and the new ground gets built.

I think the booing was because everyone could see certain players were giving nothing, and all they wanted was to see changes being made. Now if those changes don't work then fine, but at least you have tried. Yesterday we had two players (we all know who they were) who contributed absolutely nothing. Yes we had young players on the bench, but if nothing else they would have brought a bit of energy into the game.

I agree ed, which is why we should be prioritising the right back position ahead of all others.


{Ed025's Note - yes mate..

Fair point mate, and you are right we do have good players we just didn't have a good team. Maybe now that's going to change.

Thought that about virtually every manager we have had (apart from Sam) , after half a dozen games.
Early signs are promising though, but then could have said that last season and look how that ended up.
