Board meeting happening now. Let's hope for a decisive response and the end of Rafas reign of terror before the night is out.
Give it to Big Dunc to instill some passion and some fire. It won't be pretty but it will be effective in enough games to save our status as a premiere league team. Gives the board lots of time to plan the next appointment and the next era of unity at the club. Also gives Wazza the chance to save Derby and put himself in the frame. Think we need somone who "gets" Everton.


{Ed025's Note - please dont even mention rooney, i would want benitez before him..

1.) 15 Jan 2022 19:46:49
With you there Ed mate, don’t want Wayne, Wayne Sleep or even John Wayne but no Wayne Rooney.

{Ed0666's Note - Everton are definitely on the ‘Wayne’ tho

2.) 15 Jan 2022 19:55:22
Love it Ed.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 20:18:35
If Rafa goes, which seems likely it should be Thomas Frank, Graeme Potter, Ralph Hasenhüttl, one of those three, all doing excellent jobs. Not Rooney, not Lampard.

{Ed025's Note - im with you swinners..

4.) 15 Jan 2022 20:20:37
Not funny GB/ Ed.

5.) 15 Jan 2022 20:31:32
Potter for me Swinners mate.

6.) 15 Jan 2022 20:34:22
Seeing Martinez and Fonseca names being mentioned on tinternet.

7.) 15 Jan 2022 20:34:57
I honestly think this club is at rock bottom now. Knowing how ridiculous the owners are they will appoint Rooney. He shouldn't be anywhere near the job. Potter, brentford manager, ajax manager etc etc yes. Stick with Duncan for now.

8.) 15 Jan 2022 20:37:25
Would he swap Brighton for Everton at the moment?

{Ed002's Note - Because of the weather?}

9.) 15 Jan 2022 20:38:13
Hasenhüttl? You mean the guy that lost 9-0 in consecutive seasons? Not for me! I like Potter and Frank though.

10.) 15 Jan 2022 20:38:57
Cant see any of those managers being released till the summer.
Seams daft sacking him,3 days after selling 1 of our better players, should have gone before xmas. Will panic again and call big sam knowing our luck.

11.) 15 Jan 2022 20:40:43
Surely this is duncs time to shine. Why people think he's going to be a tony pulis is beyond me. He was made for this job. He is rated at the club. He is rated as a coach. He gets the blame for past managers decisions and tactics. Its mad. The man bleeds blue. Remember your big legend CA wanted to take him to Madrid! Sometimes the answer is right under your nose. Potter? A draw special-ist. He has no pressure at Brighton. He wouldn't last 2 mins in the hot seat. There's no other option available. Most of these "big name" managers wouldn't touch us with a barge pole. It would be career suicide for them. Dunc would relish the opportunity and you'd at least know for sure that he's a man who's going to bleed for us. What is up with people not wanting him? Youve had everyone now and they've all failed. Most of them didn't have us in their hearts at all! They came for money! that's it! Give him the job and we won't look back.

12.) 15 Jan 2022 21:05:22
Dunc till end of season. 1 pt a game average should do it. Then see if Martinez will come back.

13.) 15 Jan 2022 21:14:17
I said it a few weeks back and I'll say it again, bring back Roberto Martinez. He just wasn't ready when first with us, but i think he has turned into an outstanding Manager (or Head Coach? Still never understood the distinction) with Belgium. Yes he had some supreme talent but he still gave chances to many of the less fancied players and helped them shine. Would many managers really have the balls to bench Edin Hazard in favour of his younger brother? Defensively they weren't the best but when you have to rely on the aging Vertonghen because there are very few options then it's not entirely the fault of the guy in charge.
Martinez has improved without a doubt and would be a much better version of the guy we once put our faith in.

Oh, and please stop making excuses for Mykolenko guys. No more of this "he's young" "he's not played much lately" nonsense. Utterly woeful and that's being nice. Made to look extremely mediocre against Hull and Norwich, so Heaven help us against the many higher quality teams we face. The spot now needs to be taken by Godfrey who we know can do a job at LB/ LWB, allow Mina and Keane/ Branthwaite to get in a groove together and cut out the insistence that Rondon should consistently get in the team. Those very basic changes should be good enough to steer us away from relegation. Only then should we start uprooting the team to make new signings. Safety first at all costs!

14.) 15 Jan 2022 21:14:57
Pauly, I'd love to see him do well but if he was that good they would have given him the job already or he would have left and gone to manage elsewhere.

For me:

Jesse marsch - just left RBL after not been given a fair crack there, did well at salzburg.

Mark Warburton- beat us with QPR this season, plays decent football, takes no sh*te, managed rangers.

Lucien favre - done well at various clubs across Europe, linked to most top jobs.

Harry Potter- took 3 years but got Brighton playing well, even though they drawn loads, did inherit most of the players tho,

15.) 15 Jan 2022 21:19:39
Fk me! Are you for real ducks?

16.) 15 Jan 2022 22:04:59
Martinez nearly took us down with a top 8 side, imagine what he'd do with this lot.
No, no and no. Can't happen.

17.) 15 Jan 2022 22:06:58
i am 60 and been an evertonian all my life season ticket holder in same seat for the past 12 years after moving around the stands. I have to say all our supporters do is hound out manager after manager without giving them enough time but the same supporters still support and stay loyal to the cowardly persons that wear our shirt. Well i am done with this fuking club and our so called loyal supporters most of whom would not know loyalty if it bit them on the bollocks oh and by the way i would have more respect for some of them if they actually went to the fukin games. So if it is true and they sack another manager and put a fuking drunk in charge my season ticket will be back with them on monday and i will never watch them fukin cowards ever again.

18.) 15 Jan 2022 22:14:55
Whos the drunk? Surely not duncan? You absolute idiot! 6 points in 4 months and you want to see the end of the road? If its dunc you're talking about you need help.

19.) 15 Jan 2022 22:17:27
Sorry to tell you this thomo but our greatest ever manager was, what you would call, a drunk!

20.) 15 Jan 2022 22:35:34
I know that pauly and if the loyal supporters had their way kendall would have been sacked but in those days we had a board of directors with a set of bollocks and i suppose you are loyal to the crap that put on the shirt each week?

21.) 15 Jan 2022 23:00:41
No. I'm not loyal to crap. I'm loyal to a man who will sort out this bunch of crap because I know he has our interests at heart. Its never about the players at Everton football club. It will only ever be about the heart of the man who is called the manager. He ticks every box for me. You should wake up a little bit.

22.) 15 Jan 2022 23:10:22
Pauly Smitt we were 11th wgen the plane flew and Moshri stepped in. Got us 5th. Nobody come close since. As I said bring a good defensive coach with him and it would work. Mind you all pie in the sky as Moshri will ignore all in favour of these mysterious interfering advisors.

23.) 15 Jan 2022 23:13:31
Rather bad language for a 60 year old Alan but I think I get your drift.

24.) 15 Jan 2022 23:14:31
Keep the faith Alan.

25.) 16 Jan 2022 01:36:35
We need someone with experience, who knows the club and can work with a rubbish squad. Only one man if we can pry him away from West Ham. I will probably get slaughtered for saying it but is Moyes not a logical decision now?

{Ed0666's Note - Why would he come for a relegation battle when he’s challenging for a champions league position. lives in London and has a better caliber of player to choose from when it comes to transfers

26.) 16 Jan 2022 14:36:52
Why do we have to get soneone who "gets the club" it' s utter nonsense.
It has to be the best man who can do the job and there are none in this catagory I can think of "that get the club"
As for Martinez taking us down, we were 12th when Martinez was sacked with 1 game to go so we weren't going down so why sack him?
Moyes finished 17th his 2nd full season I don't remember too much screaming for him to be sacked, we gave him time, something todays Everton fans won't do, and things became better.

Let's be fair. Takes a while to change up the CBs in a team but if they can sort out their roles then lots of promise. Coady needs to be given green light to hit balls to the wings more and Onana! Wow this guy is going to be a monster, scary abilities and power. The game deserved to be a draw but that 1st half was ropey. Still patching positions with square pegs and all that but if we can get some pace up front and someone with an eye for goal. This start is just a slow blip. Need to start games with a mentality that we are there to score, attack and go for wins. Being reactive with a mountain to climb is going to kill us. We need 2 more signings before window shuts.


1.) 13 Aug 2022 15:04:06
Yes, a poor performance but not an utter travesty like so many last season. The defence need time to gel and we all knew we were never going to get 90 minutes out of Rondon today, so saving him for the second half in favour of youth, creativity and energy was all we could put up front today. Didn't work, but highlighted the need for 2 strikers and a Gana Guaye. Onana looks the business. McNeil worryingly not so far, but it's early days.

2.) 13 Aug 2022 15:48:58
Rondon is no a prem player. Get rid now.

3.) 13 Aug 2022 15:53:50
Hope I'm proven wrong re mcneil but I think he's rubbish.

4.) 13 Aug 2022 16:55:04
Too slow.



27 Jul 2022 16:28:26
RVs club interview up online 10 minutes ago. Speaks well. Released the interview before announcement but hey whatever. That's 2 but let there be a few more.




10 Apr 2022 15:56:42
Pukki you beauty.


1.) 10 Apr 2022 16:16:58
Massive results for us this weekend, it’s mad how easily things can change in a few days. Wednesday night things looked bleak, much more positive again now. I reckon Burnley will finish on 33/ 34 points so reckon we will need 7 more points, 2 wins, 1 draw from the last 8 games.

2.) 10 Apr 2022 17:12:09
I am working on the presumption of 9 pts.

3.) 10 Apr 2022 18:03:42
Looking at their fixtures and being rather kind to Burnley I could see them picking up 36 points so 9 should do it worst case. Here’s hoping! .



09 Apr 2022 17:50:14
"American investors circling Everton" as FM looks for backers/ sale/ financial help.
Hope we stay up, get a new hierarchy in the boardroom and start to run this great club like a football club again and not a wallies toy thing.
Great performance today too, especially with the dreaded lunch time kick off, as we never perform well at the best of times. 5 or 6 fighting for MOTM too. Take a bow Delph and FL for using him where he was used for England, a screen for the defence, he's good at it.


1.) 09 Apr 2022 18:56:21
Said about that yesterday abut US investors mate and got told it was nonsense, hope you get better luck.

2.) 09 Apr 2022 22:14:51
Oh right I see GB. I'm just repeating what was all over the sky and BBC paper round ups. Who knows? But surely FM has had enough by now of making himself public enemy and a massive tit to boot?

3.) 09 Apr 2022 23:37:32
Hope you are both right, sooner rid of moshiri the better as well as half the playing staff.
Glad for the win today but been here before all season. Cannot seem to follow up a win with a positive performance ie minimum a draw. If we lose to Leicester on Wednesday then we are right back in the rubbish again.



09 Mar 2022 00:18:48
Points deduction sounds like a real treat.


1.) 09 Mar 2022 00:56:07
Would not surprise me, our management could not organize a p. -up in a brewery. I am beginning to blame Kenwright, 25 years without winning anything and all he has done is lead us to this, financial problems, a useless and worthless team and relegation on the horizon. Hopefully he will just go and leave the running of the club to the manager and new DOF, and keep Moshiri away as well.

2.) 09 Mar 2022 01:02:36

3.) 09 Mar 2022 07:46:27
Genuinely not assed anymore tbh. I’ve been convinced of relegation since November.

4.) 09 Mar 2022 07:34:20
It doesn't just rain ☔ does it!

5.) 09 Mar 2022 00:26:58
Do any eds know how probable, and if so, when points, would be deducted?

{Ed002's Note - It is p;ossible rather than probable at the moment.}

6.) 09 Mar 2022 08:13:12
Any of the Ed’s heard anything about this? . I’m hoping it’s just the daily fail sensationalising something again for a few column inches.

{Ed002's Note - Everton have a significant FFP issue and are carrying significant debt. A points deduction is possible if the profit and sustainability rules are broken.}

7.) 09 Mar 2022 13:57:06
Am I right in thinking that if it does come to a points deduction that it will impact us next season not this?

{Ed002's Note - Not really. If they are charged by the Premier League it would then go through a period of negotiation and then appeal - that could drag it out to next season but easily see any deduction increase. There were talks between the Premier League and the club in December or January. So right now, nobody knows.}

8.) 09 Mar 2022 16:21:08
Cheers Ed, appreciate the reply.
Unbelievable that we’ve got into this situation as surely there should have been someone in charge of finances keeping an eye on this sort of thing.

{Ed002's Note - obviously the club will argue that the impact of COVID was worse than imagined even after the relaxation of the rules, but it may not be enough. They could seek a stay and propose recovering by the end of this season by proposing sales.}

9.) 09 Mar 2022 17:52:04
Cheers Ed - unfortunately the way we are playing and majority of players performing doubt we’d raise much from sales.

Hopefully we manage to survive this season and the club use this whole experience as a wake up call and sort themselves out - probably wishful thinking though.

{Ed002's Note - Callvert-Lewinsky and Richarlison would make a big dent.

10.) 09 Mar 2022 19:01:05
Is calvert-lewinsky related to Monica? She was good going down, too, just like we may, unless they start fighting to stay up.

How old was RB when he left us? 23 24? a few England caps? Regular 1st teamer for what? 3 or 4 seasons? Occasionally wore the captains arm band when Baines went off. Gordon isn't even any of those things. He may well be but I don't rate him when I compare him to the lads in and around the England squad. Can't see him ever getting in the squad. He has so much to improve where as RB was only missing playing with elite players. That's partly why he didn't break in to CFC 1st 11 because they're so strong and talented and partly why its a shock he didn't become a mega star surrounded by all that international world class talent. The big pay day and bright lights of London were enough for him and his attitude stinks. Would Gordon be any different? I agree he's a bright future if he works hard but the money being spoken of is ridiculous. So ridiculous that he's surely going to be sold. I can't believe I'm saying this but for the 1st time I am 100% in agreement with Sourness. He gets to the ball fast enough but then falls over. He can't shoot can't pass and can't cross or take a free kick. He is getting a lot of attention because he can pass a man so long as he isn't breathed on. He has a really healthy spiteful streak and he's a local lad but that last point is blinding people who are desperate for him to succeed. He's a golden egg frankly and the 50m is too big a deal to turn down. That would improve our squad. I also agree with Chelsea fans who almost all don't want him. He'd never get on the pitch. He'd disappear into the wilderness and join the Everton conveyor belt to oblivion. He could very well have come out and distanced himself from the speculation he could have signed his new contract but he hasn't. He is like any young footballer, he wants the big pay day and he wants to win things. He definitely wants to go. He may well end up the best midfielder in the country but I don't see how.

Can't believe we knocked back 40 mil myself. Push to 50 and he's got to go. What a pay day, he's never worth anywhere near that.

That's a terrible idea. Why would we throw away 27mil for a player who couldn't get into my long folded Sunday league squad? He's got a serious personality ego issue and has fallen the way of many a young pro. He believed his own hype and threw away his chance, a mess of a man and fast becoming untouchable. I couldn't believe we scored that deal with Juve at the time, flabbergasted they fell for it but it got us off that hook. He's Juves problems now and they took the gamble. They don't have a leg to stand on re discount and that twerp has slid off the "stepping stone" and the plastic flamingo has kicked his butt on the way to the bottom of the pond. A rare win for our transfer record. This humble stepping stone turned out to be his high water mark. Dufus.

Rikkie was a cunning player who was A+ at the dark arts of the game. He won us so many free kicks. Sure he made a meal of some but considering how many times he went down, he didn't actually get booked too many times for diving. Coleman dives more and that's a fact. We've watched the top clubs employ this type with annoying success for what? 30 years or more. It was about time we had someone who knew how to do it. He also got properly booted and taken out and he just got up, pulled a face, rubbed his knee and then got on with it. He was nails. What a player. Let's not be bitter let's show a bit of class and give him some respect.

I nearly posted that a month ago. He'd be great for us as a goal scorer and shirt seller but literally everything else that comes with that guy would be toxic and seriously damaging, let alone financially disturbing to the FFP and the rest of the changing room. Think he should go to the USA thing or go back Portugal. Legend but being treated by the **** as a patsy.
