Hi ed002, just wondering if you have heard if the Zouma to Everton could potentially be revisited in the summer? I understand from below that Everton made errors in their pursuit previously, has this left the deal dead or is it potentially still an option for the player and clubs?


{Ed002's Note - Kurt Zouma - Everton need to talk directly to Chelsea to see what their options are on Zouma - and not through a third party which they tried previously. It looks unlikely anything like that will happen right now - but the option is there.}

1.) 16 Jan 2020 20:51:25
Thanks for the response ed. I think he should be a target as the defence was better with him in it and he is better than most of the CBs we have been linked with.

2.) 17 Jan 2020 00:11:08
Ed002 as you rate unlikely. Other names are more realistic choices? Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I have mentioned hat I know.}



01 Jun 2019 08:52:08
Hi eds, hope you are all ok. I've seen rumours from France stating we have opened talks with Lyon about Bertrand Traore, I think he would be a good replacement for Lookman, do you have any info on this? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Lyon have said they have had a number of approaches and have reminded one club that another side still has an option on the player. They are likely to be reluctant sellers as Maxwel Cornet is available.}

1.) 01 Jun 2019 11:32:35
Cheers mate thank you. congratulations about Wednesday as well!

2.) 01 Jun 2019 14:50:49
Not convinced he is the striker we need. But. Who am I?

3.) 01 Jun 2019 21:41:48
I agree he’s not the striker but I think if and it’s a big IF we are in for him it’s the right wing position he would be considered for not the striker role although he could rotate there I guess
Similarly to what you said, what do I know 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Question for the eds, if we go into admin, can we cancel our player contracts like Rangers did or will we still be stuck with them? Sorry if this has already been covered but I could not see if this had been discussed.


{Ed002's Note - Everton are not going in to Administration and are not cancelling any contracts.}

1.) 20 Jan 2020 09:03:43
where've you got the idea from we're going into admin?



02 Dec 2019 13:27:32
Does anyone else think our problems rub deeper than the manager? Individual errors and beibg weak when under pressure has been symptematic of the club since the Martinez era, our players don't seem to be able to hold on/ withstand pressure towards the end of games. I just thought 3 at the back was a good move for the next few weeks and the players appeared to ve more settled, but again individual errors cost us. Was a cruel blow that winner though, it is just so Everton, we need a strong defensive performance to get anything from next few games.


1.) 02 Dec 2019 13:55:35
Yes this is more than the manager I agree, these players tend to turn up unexpectedly and surprise the opposition (and fans) they gatecrashed the 'King Power' and almost pulled it off until the Foxes with the help of Marco's changing players
found a way to come out of the match with 3 points.

Marco has to bear a substantial amount of responsibility for this loss.

2.) 02 Dec 2019 14:40:13
group of spineless players mate, wouldn't flinch if any of this crop left us and that's the problem there no attachment.

3.) 02 Dec 2019 15:19:44
Some of the boys put in a really good shift yesterday even Siggy was closing down like a madman at times, for 98% of that game we kept a really good shape defensively. The two subs were needed DCL and Iwobi looked knackered and needed to be replaced. I know its not good enough but this week they were actually trying to win the game and played some positive stuff.

4.) 02 Dec 2019 18:19:59
The 3 at the back worked until Leicester changed shape and went with 2 up top, that is when a tactical manager would have seen that we were being over run and reverted to a flat back 4 and add another body in the central midfield area to shore things up.

5.) 04 Dec 2019 08:59:43
thought sigurdssons positional sense was terrible and wasnt doing the job he was asked, pressing like a mad man is great, if that's what your told to do, if your the 2 shielding a back three you can't press like a mad man, siggy done that therefore leaving tom exposed 9/ 10.

Hi eds, do u know why Allardyce is intersted in the job? I remember before Koeman was sacked him saying he wanted and international job and left palace saying health reasons? If he just wants to come for the money i don't think its the right appointment because that was the reason Koeman came and look how that turned out. That said, i'm sure he would steady the ship in the short term if he was committed to us, and not Farhads money.


{Ed025's Note - he wants to manage on a short term basis these days gold, he sees himself as a fixer who will take on clubs in trouble and get them back on the right track, his family are his main priority he has stated so wants a big pay day over a short period and clubs are willing to accommodate him mate..

1.) 07 Nov 2017 19:45:04
All this Allardyce business is doing my head in. I cannot believe that a man who buys a major stake in a club with the intention of making it a top 6 side that regularly competes for domestic and European trophies and, who is prepared to bankroll a new stadium, can’t look further than the basement type managers being banded around. If we get Allardyce a new manager will end up undoing what he will do as we will have players he buys in January who will not be good enough to compete where we want to be and just cost us a fortune to replace when we appoint a new manager. Now is the chance to get a good manager, give him the opportunity to work with the players we have, build their confidence, steer us clear of relegation and as high as he can. Then in the background he can be making the subtle changes required for his style of play and some additions in January to take us forward and ready for next season. Europe has gone now, a top 6 place is still possible, the FA cup is still there. We must be the laughing stock of the EPL at the moment. I would also demote Walsh as he must take some of the responsibility for what has happened.

{Ed002's Note - Moshiri is not bankrolling any new stadium for Everton. You are living in a fantasy world.}

2.) 07 Nov 2017 19:59:05
Ed002 You are clearly a well connected individual whom understands football inside out, so please could you outline; Who Moshiri is?, What's his plan for the club? Will the stadium happen, how is it bring paid for? And finally who is actually in charge of the club?

{Ed002's Note - You should know all of these answers. Moshiri is a businessman who has invested in Everton at a time when English football is growing significantly financially. His plan is to see the club grow. The Council are behind the stadium financially and Everton will provide payments to the loans. I have no idea what you expect in respect of the last question.}

3.) 07 Nov 2017 20:00:40
Sorry ed my understanding was Morishi would ensure that the SPV who loaned the money for the stadium build that repayments would be guaranteed. You need to cool down with your replies and get out more lol.

{Ed002's Note - Try not to share ignorance then.}

4.) 07 Nov 2017 20:34:14
Thanks for your reply. Clarity is I'm seeking at a time when our football club seems rather muddled in it's thinking to say the least. The position of Steve Welsh seems vague while in the end like any business one man makes the final call on a decision such as a new Manager.



02 Nov 2017 17:29:09
Hi ed025/ ed001/ ed002 do any of you guys know what the problem with Sandro is? Not getting a look in at the min, i know he wasnt great previously but he has had very little time to settle, i thought tonight would be a perfect opportunity to give him a game but we have decided to play others and not even take him. baffles me how they ecpect the lad to settle. cheers.


{Ed025's Note - its a tricky one gold, to be fair he has done nothing to warrant a place in the first team up to now but i seen tonight as a perfect opportunity, he has been very underwhelming since he came and i was really looking forward to him playing as he looked really good in spain, i dont know if his confidence is shot but i see tonight as a dead rubber and a chance for fringe players to stake their claim mate, not everyone will see it like me of course..

1.) 02 Nov 2017 17:54:20
I think Unsworth has bowed to public demand and started Lookman. What he has overlooked is we all wanted him to start on the wing lol.
This is either going to be a suicidal or genius line up. I mean if he hammer Lyon would he play this team Sunday?

2.) 02 Nov 2017 18:04:51
Agreed ed, would have been the perfect opportunity with less pressure, if they throw him back in to a league game, the pressure would get to him i think.

{Ed025's Note - at this time i think it would gold..

3.) 02 Nov 2017 18:15:44
not looking good so far smit666.



26 Jun 2017 18:36:14
Hi eds sorry if you have already replied to this before. is the Cuco Martina deal still happening? A friend is adamant it is getting announced this weekend when contract expires but i haven't heard anything on him for weeks? Thanks.


{Ed025's Note - that seems to have stalled somewhat DG, he was on a free but may be deciding his future when a new manager is appointed at southampton mate..

1.) 26 Jun 2017 21:44:37
Hopefully Kenny will be given a chance at back up this season. The summer has done his chances no harm imo.

{Ed025's Note - i hope your right kingo, i know spending big is really exciting for us all, but i hope the likes of tom davies and a couple of others (including jonjoe) dont get pushed out, these kids have to be part of our future mate..

Thanks for clearing that up ed, I just hope we can sort ourselves out before it gets too serious, would be a huge blow to get into Europe and then banned/ fined. As you say, the business seems unsustainable and I was just fearing the worst. Hopefully we cam reduce the numbers of the squad, thanks again ed.

Hi ed, would it be possible for Everton to liquidate and form a new club similar to Rangers, or is it a case that we are going to be liquidated and they will not allow us to come back. such a shame that mismanagement is going to close our club, just as we were turning the season around, I hope they allow us to recreate a version of us in the lower leagues.


{Ed002's Note - Don’t worry, nothing like that is going to happen}

Not being funny, but Wood, Barnes amd Rodriguez are all well better than Niasse, Burnley aren't stupid.

Its a shame that, thought he would be a good signing, I don't thini we will ever be able to get out of this rut, there doesn't look like many options for us to improve in CM, hope we have other targets, however we can never seem to get our number 1 target, I remember ed002 saying that Gbamin was 4th or 5th on the list of options for that position, and look how that turned out! Our transfer policy is so poor at the minute. I seen Fellaini was linked to West Ham, i would bring him back in on a 18 month deal if it would be possible, he would bring a bit of fight back in CM, no doubt the board will bring in another player with no prem exprience and a history of injury problems. We can but hope for a change in policy.

I thought Morgan done well, maybe he works well with Ancelotti, not sure if he has a future beyond the season but hopefully he can continue like that until the end of the season and give us a decision to make.

Just to expand on the Delph point, VAR should be changed at the end of the season to allow the VAR to review a second yellow card if a player is to be sent off. In my opinion, Delph won the ball on his first yellow, and the second was debatable but Capoue made the most of it. I think we couldve benefitted from a review on that one.

I think Davies has done enough to be kept as well, also bring back Jonjoe Kenny after the loan.

@evocallum mate I totally agree, to me he is the best out there, he was unfairly treated at Chelsea after winning the double in first year and has had major success with most clubs (albeit better teams than us at present) . I just find it hard to believe he is interested, I hope I am wrong. only concern is has he ever worked with a squad as poor as ours is currently.

What do we do in training regarding defence, we make it so easy for other teams, we look like amateurs at the back, the basics of defending have eluded yet another of our managers.
