Looks like James is off then. does anyone care?


1.) 02 Jul 2021 13:38:54
He was a good player, really good signing, but injuries and lack of pace and energy mean he won’t be missed.

2.) 02 Jul 2021 16:08:47
I’ve read that it’s far from done as at the moment his wage demands are way to high.

3.) 02 Jul 2021 16:54:33
He needs to be in a team that can carry a player like that and we are not at that level so it's best he moves on.

4.) 02 Jul 2021 21:59:27
Is he so good that we pay roughly 250k per game? No way Rafa!

5.) 02 Jul 2021 22:33:53
If he leaves, and we also get a buyer for Bernard, I would happily swap places for an incoming Coutinho.

{Ed025's Note - i dont bignev, the last thing we need right now is another show pony mate..

6.) 02 Jul 2021 23:01:01
So swap out James for Coutinho. Who is just as injury prone but not as good, but will be on much higher wages.

{Ed0666's Note - James better than Couts. ‘The drugs don’t work they just make it worse’

7.) 02 Jul 2021 23:40:08
I get he played for Liverpool the reds have a love in with every ex player (rather like us) like Coady better than Mina, Kent better than Richarlison, Solanke better than DCL etc

But yeah, James is better than Coutinho, he manages to run games by himself in a crap team, Coutinho has yet to do that.

{Ed0666's Note - run a game maybe. Coutinho is a stud when he turns it on. You’ll be blessed to have him mate.

8.) 02 Jul 2021 23:45:27
Just read James is going to quit with Rafa in place. What does that mean? How can he quit again after he already quit in the spring?

{Ed0666's Note - maybe he has Ancelotti-itis?

9.) 03 Jul 2021 07:31:53
A paper in Columbia ran a story basically telling James now is the time to stay at Everton and not run because he doesn't get the kiddy glove treatment from a manager.



25 Jun 2021 23:51:34
I think the prolonged delay in making the appointment is a ploy. seeing more and more people saying that they’ve had enough now and just want them to get it sorted so we can prepare for the season.
Seems the anger has subsided and everyone has accepted the inevitable.
I suppose we do what we normally do and get behind the club - even though I was (am) dead against Rafa.


1.) 26 Jun 2021 00:55:34
I don't think its a ploy at all. Not everyone is against rafa being manager. I think its more to do with getting the best manager we can for the club right now. My opinion is that rafa is the right manager for us right now. There are stubborn people who refuse to take the blue tinted glasses off and would rather cut off their nose to bite their face but each to their own.

2.) 26 Jun 2021 01:37:13
No people haven’t just “accepted it”, plenty of people still outraged by it and will continue to be.

3.) 26 Jun 2021 01:54:39
And that just shows what kind of fans we have. He has not had a game yet some simple minded fans right him off. did lfc fans spit there dummy out like some of our so called fans when nick barmby left us for them no or did we with beardsley . Get a grip and look at the bigger picture. Its pathetic how so called fans would rather us go for how or dyche over rafa. Take your head for a whobble and get a grip. If you want one over pool bow about support him and when he wins US trophies rub it their face. Their so called massiah wanta to manage US.

4.) 26 Jun 2021 02:06:06
I think most of them people u speak about are pool fans, every one i speak to are happy to have rafa.

5.) 26 Jun 2021 05:18:50
And nearly every one I speak to outside of this site doesn’t want him, it’s all dependent on who you speak to

People are allowed to not want him

Some people don’t want him simply because they think he’s finished as a top manager, in fact, every person I’ve spoken to who doesn’t want him, have said they don’t think he’ll be a good appointment, it has very little to nothing to do with him being an ex red.

{Ed0666's Note - Newcastle fans would walk over cracked glass to have him back. I would say that both clubs are similar in scenario as in their sleeping giants and need a experienced coach to give them a push to the next level. I think Rafa would be an excellent choice to do this. The difference is the geordies are realistic and don’t have ideas of grandiose

6.) 26 Jun 2021 06:03:15
To suggest that the expectations of Evertonians and Geordies should be similar, is baffling, one owner spends, the other doesn’t, one has had a successful history, the other hasn’t, one has been flirting with Europe for years, the other hasn’t. We don’t expect the league or the champions league, we just want a team that tries hard and competes for Europe regularly, that’s it, we just want to be exactly like Leicester are, maybe a not that good, but there or there abouts in terms of how they are run.

Newcastle fans are pretty happy with 15th every season so long as their team puts a shift in. I can’t fault them for that, they aren’t a big club, or a sleeping giant. Just an okay club with a great fanbase.

7.) 26 Jun 2021 06:12:38
Worth noting on Rafa, I’m not Rafa in or out or whatever. I’ve come to terms with it, I’ll get behind the man. One of the worst things when Martinez was in charge was Liverpool fans singing his name when they smashed us 4-0 (again) . But there’s Liverpool and Newcastle fans saying “why wouldn’t you want Rafa? He’s great”, that speaks volumes and does give me a little bit of hope that it might work out. He’s going uphill in ice skates, but here’s hoping for the best. Duncan Ferguson made a good point in an interview (about Allardyce) when he said “someone trying their best to get Everton results and being booed off the pitch, that’s not Everton”. I hope people take a lesson from that, booing Rafa on day one or during games won’t do us any favours. Neither will personal insults on banners. If you don’t like his appointment and want to protest against the board, fine, there’s ways to go about that. But actively wanting the team to suffer (in some cases) just so he gets sacked quicker will only damage us more long term.

{Ed025's Note - i agree swan mate..

8.) 26 Jun 2021 08:14:33
baffles me when people try to compare Newcastle to Everton as Swan pointed out they are not a big club and have never been one they are a one city club with a decent fanbase but they are not a sleeping giant and are nothing more than a yo yo club and you say they don't have ideas of grandiose have you actually spoken to Newcastle fans they genuinely believe they are massive and should be challenging for the champions league while comparing themselves to Liverpool fans for atmosphere because they believe everything sky sports say and we all know sky like to make out anfield is the only ground with an atmosphere they are a laughable fanbase who scream they can't sell the away end at Goodison out because the game was played on a tues night their fans are a myth just like our neighbours.

9.) 26 Jun 2021 08:35:56
Swan 117 wind your neck in. Newcastle have actually played in the group stage of the CL Everton haven't.

10.) 26 Jun 2021 08:52:22
Brankwymoordock Liverpool are a bigger club than Everton and that's a FACT Another FACT is Newcastle have actually played in the group stages of the CL and Everton haven't.

11.) 26 Jun 2021 10:27:40
Rudder, wind your neck in 😂😂😂 funny you mate, he's a swan 😎 but his opinions actually mostly make sense.

12.) 26 Jun 2021 12:09:28
Rudder, steer yourself back to the lfc page mate, you are adding absolutely zero to the conversation and nobody really cares what you think of Everton or Newcastle. I mean, getting to the group stage of the champions league makes Newcastle a big club? Crazy talk.

13.) 26 Jun 2021 17:27:44
Bluepotato I was about to ask the same question reg Newcastle and Rudder I'm guessing you can't read as would you like to point where I said Liverpool are not a big club is this one of those kopite traits where you make something up and believe it to be gospel.

14.) 26 Jun 2021 18:10:59
Everton haven't been a big club in over a quarter of a century. If I was Rafa I wouldn't touch Everton with a barge pole.

15.) 28 Jun 2021 02:48:53
And before Alex Fergerson came along Manchester United had not won the league in 25 years, things change, afder all, there is a club quite close by that until resently not won there own championship in 30 years, but still insisted they we a big club, so we will build for the future, rather than try and live on past glory, but then the delusional cannot be helped.

16.) 28 Jun 2021 11:35:04
I'm not thrilled with Rafa but I'll give him my support if he is coming in. My not liking the choice has less to do with his red history and more to do with things like being a very defensive coach who hasn't stayed anywhere long since Liverpool when we need someone to get the fans behind an exciting longterm project.
but hopefully he wins us a trophy and the haters will be so surprised they'll love him.



17 Jun 2021 22:42:40
If the rumours are true then shame on you EFC.
Benitez was deemed passed his best years ago by that lot, did nothing at Newcastle but now considered the perfect choice to lead us into our new stadium and bright new era?

What a joke, an absolute disgusting embarrassing joke!
Brands will be gone next and we will be led once again by a mercenary who cares nothing for our small club!

Where’s the “fresh” exciting new coaching talent?
This is no more a positive appointment than Fat Sam!

Yet again we are a laughing stock thanks to the pathetic inept management of our club. was always told be careful what you wish for. I know understand why.
Duncan Ferguson is a legend but if he remains part of the fat waiter’s set up then we know why the Nuno appointment fell through.
Nuno, Potter, Martinez. anyone but him!
Cannot and will not support him.
All the above is only applicable if the rumours are true of course!


1.) 18 Jun 2021 08:49:09
Benitez did nothing at Newcastle! = Brought them up from Championship and made the most of a bad job (the owner) wuth little to no resources. Chelsea finished 3rd won Europa League. Liverpool won Champions League. The only problem is as now being reported is his difficulty working with DoF. 3rd/ 4th meeting today so perhaps that may be ironed out. If hired, what he will do is create a period of stability. What us fickle fans should do is give our heads a wobble.

2.) 18 Jun 2021 08:54:51
Why get so upset about something that hasn't happened?

I fully understand that for some this would be a disaster of a choice. But why is everyone so insistent on believing everything is as the papers tell us, its like we all want to be pissed off about something.

3.) 18 Jun 2021 09:19:49
Chelsea third and Europa? Have a chat with Chelsea supporters see what they think about that.

4.) 18 Jun 2021 14:53:50
reds here . Your not Chelsea they had won plenty before Rafa arrived . What you need it stability and I think he will bring that. By the way I am 47 and want the days back the the mighty red and the neighbours across the park fought for the league. Nuno would be good but heard he want rid of big Dunc so looks like a no go .

5.) 18 Jun 2021 22:07:42
At least give the man a chance. Stability sounds good to me, in fact, just what we need.

If we apply that level of performance for the next 6 games we’ll be ok…pleased for Alli as he seems to be showing glimpses of the player he can be.
Just absolute sick and tired of the top Club bias from referee’s and media, how many games have been affected by poor officiating this season and not just Blues saying that, lots of neutral media analysts as well.
We’ll survive…just!


{Ed025's Note - I wish I could believe that Brett..

1.) 24 Apr 2022 20:43:12
Carraghers biased commentary on sky is what annoys me most about today. We weren't going there to win, but we played a decent game. Gordon was brilliant, but for carragher to award Origi man of the match is a joke and another dig at us.

2.) 24 Apr 2022 20:59:08
Blueray martin tyler was just the same biast throughout 90 but agree mate terrible.

3.) 24 Apr 2022 21:10:03
To be fair to Carragher he did say it was a stonewall penalty as well.

4.) 24 Apr 2022 21:10:29
If we look at geoffs predictions for Burnley they will now get 38 points. I can't see where we will get the points we need. For the first time this season I have to admit that we stand a more than 50% of going down and each point less gets worse. I feel sick. I feel angry. I can't blame Frank or any others to be honest. I blame FM and the board. I have to let it all go now as constantly hoping and praying just leads to being unhappy. What will be will be.

5.) 24 Apr 2022 21:38:50
Jim Beglin was just horrendous! Although even he admitted it was a penalty - unlike Ed66 the grammar king!

{Ed0666's Note - My grammar is the worst ever!

6.) 24 Apr 2022 22:00:48
Thought mrs tyler commentated well today, took all of 3 minutes before he mentioned pickfords tackle on dick van dyke. The better side won bur only with the help of the officials, we set up to frustrate, pickford took half the time schmichael got away with on wednesday, we just don't get the big decisions.

7.) 24 Apr 2022 22:07:06
Nick. If we give Burnley 7 more points, we would have to get 3 wins, probably, Watford, Brentford and Palace.

We could also do with Leeds losing next 4 to keep them in the mix too.

Think villa on 37 are a bit too far so could say they are safe, especially if we hope they beat Burnley twice.

8.) 24 Apr 2022 22:27:52
My worry with villa as far fetched as this sounds is Gerrard may pick a poor team against Burnley to hasten our relegation and further cement his reputation as a Liverpool legend ?.

9.) 24 Apr 2022 23:07:36
I reckon we need to look at Leeds, they have got a bad few gamesto go yet. But we will need to find 7+ points from somewhere.

10.) 24 Apr 2022 22:50:50
Grammar aside Ed66
Do u now accept it was a penalty?

{Ed0666's Note - mate I really don’t. I just for the life of me cannot see it.

11.) 25 Apr 2022 01:56:46
Come on Ed not only did he foul him he even stood on his foot for good measure, penalty all Day long, his first one when he went to ground too easily cost him that second one, fooled the ref but where was var.

{Ed0666's Note - Mark Clattenburg who was set the standard for referees in my opinion has come out and said Atwell got every major decision correct. That’s good enough for me mate. Of course your always gonna get differing opinions but that’s football.

12.) 25 Apr 2022 02:14:33
Still say Lampard is holding Calvert-Lewin back for those three more favourable games, to try and get points there, watch Dcl make a miraculous recovery, after the Chelsea game, along with Delph, game was crying out for a like for like swap, either Allen or Doucoure after half time, for Delph.

Klopp made his changes, we did not, until it was too late.

One Manager spotted the need for change, fair play to Klopp.

13.) 25 Apr 2022 08:10:32
Clattenburg setting the standard is classic! He did the same for Electricians!

14.) 25 Apr 2022 11:02:51
Il take the defeat not a problem but them 2 yesterday co commentating was a joke i fought we actually played well just couldn't get a decent shot in final 3rd but i won't be watching us on sky no more rather listen to it if needs be.

15.) 25 Apr 2022 15:02:55
That the same clattenburg that listened to Gerrard all those years ago, to change a yellow to a red? C'mon ed066, that's like taking baby sitting advice from Jimmy Saville!

{Ed0666's Note - one indiscretion doesent make him a bad referee mate. Clattanburg said the Ref was right not to award the pen carra said it was a penalty whose right or wrong? Do you go with the ex player whose should know all about giving penalties away or do you believe an ex official whose seen literally thousands of these tackles over the course of his career? Lampard cites the example of if that had been Salah it would have been a pen I’ve literally seen at least 25 occasions the exact thing or wise has happened to Salah and no resultant penalty. The facts remain you played really well, had a game plan which you executed well but you were lacking the final ball and that composure up front hence why you are in the bottom 3

16.) 26 Apr 2022 12:27:26
Or do you use VAR which is what it was supposed to be brought in for?

17.) 27 Apr 2022 03:55:54
Neither of them ed! But definitely not the ex ref who made the game all about him, especially when the cameras were there. It's all down to personal opinions mate, it was a pen for me all day.

{Ed0666's Note - again I feel we have to agree to disagree mate



07 Apr 2022 10:51:56
The definition of madness is doing the same thing the same way over and over again and expecting a different outcome…on that basis, this club is as mad as a box of frogs!
I can’t put any blame yet on Lampard for our position but he needs to take responsibility for team selection… Kenny, Holgate, Keane who would struggle to get in a championship side are repeatedly picked?
Our destiny is still in our hands but if he continues to go with what we have seen in recent weeks then we have no chance.
Why not try Dobbin, why not try Ali, why not try El Ghazi…surely they cannot do any worse… why was Patterson overlooked despite being an obvious talent?
Why persist with DCL who is a country mile off being anywhere near last season form?
Forget systems, forget style just go out and defend like life depends on it and play route one football…if not then Lampard will fall under the complicit and culpable heading and that would be a real shame as I think he could be good for us long term UTFT….




24 Jan 2022 13:40:35
IF Pereira is appointed then there has to be a demonstration on a scale never seen before as this is just jumping from one bad appointment to another likely worse one!
If this is the new strategy and vision then I fear we will never actually make it into the new stadium.
New strategy and vision surely means starting over with youth and young manager desperate to prove himself…not another dinosaur drooling at a huge payday!
I really cannot bear to see our club acting like this and making the fans an absolute laughing stock in the football world.


1.) 24 Jan 2022 15:53:43
I never thought the time would come when I really don't care anymore.

2.) 24 Jan 2022 16:12:18
Agreed glt59 ?.

3.) 24 Jan 2022 19:20:43
Brett in today's Society, demonstrate all you like, those at the top don't keep a sword to fall on.



22 Jan 2022 12:25:13
Kenny instead of Patterson? Holgate? Gomes? No Gordon or Alan? …I hope he isn’t going to blow it in his first game???.


1.) 22 Jan 2022 13:11:06
So the blue eye plays holgate and Kenny and no one has a moan at him but if that was Rafa they would go mad.

2.) 22 Jan 2022 13:45:36
And weren't you asking us to give Rafa a chance in his first couple of games? Can't you give Dunc the same courtesy.

3.) 22 Jan 2022 14:30:36
No he should have gone years ago.



19 Jan 2022 10:05:32
Excited to see what team is put out on Saturday…my view would be:

That is a very good team by anyones standards and should be capable of top 6 but the way Benitez has us playing is the reason we are where we are…plus they just didn’t connect with him (understandably)

The dread in everyone’s head of course is that the squad is still capable of putting a team out that includes Coleman (total respect) , Keane, Delph, Davies, Iwobi, Rondon, Tosun…if we can get all of these gone and replace with a combination of youth and young talented players then we have a very good squad again!

The one positive on this manager merry go round is that Eddie Howe hasn’t been mentioned yet…thank god for Newcastle

Not sure who we should appoint long term but let’s just get some results and performances that shows these lads care…COYB.


1.) 19 Jan 2022 12:32:06
What no Rondon?

{Ed025's Note - apparently dunc was very encouraging to rondon in the training sessions latch, dont rule anything out mate..

2.) 19 Jan 2022 13:02:55
Not a bad selection Brett I'd be slightly more conservative and replace Gordon with another CM I just think we will need more bodies in the middle of the park to start with then bring Gordon on when we need to change things.

3.) 19 Jan 2022 13:06:40
I like that team, I'd also Gordon in from the start, maybe have him as one of a 3 in midfield, get him on the ball as much as possible.

4.) 19 Jan 2022 13:23:38
Bret, good choice there. Will Digne be on the Villa left then we need to be strong on our right to minimise crosses coming in. With it being Patterson’s first game he needs to be up to it from kick off.

5.) 19 Jan 2022 13:43:28
Yes not a bad line up, we will have to see how Patterson does, it seems Mykolenko might take a while to get up to the pace and intensity of the Premiership! Townsend maybe a bit unlucky not to make the starting line up?

A new low for Everton…how much more can fans take of this circus and joke of a board?
If I was a DCL, Richarlison, Pickford, Doucoure, Godfrey or Gray I’d be onto my agent now demanding to know what is going on and who the new manager is going to be while looking for another club ASAP and nobody could or should blame them!
This is like something out of an episode of Dream Team… just absolutely staggered at how a successful businessman can act in this way?
Hopefully the protests do the job and he goes… would rather have my club back than any new stadium!
Time for change NOW.

And with Allan apparently allowed to leave…if there is a single Evertonian that still believes that Benitez is the right man for the job then you better go find another team…we have become an absolute laughing stock from board down to the manger and even now down to our better players giving interviews and wanting to leave…I just don’t know how much more I can take!
Get him gone and get him gone NOW.

That’s pretty much it mate…bottom 3 is where we deserve to be based on results, performance and attitude…every inch of the current regime (Lampard and his team not included) is culpable in what is likely to be the biggest shock in Premier league history.
