Progress is indeed being made - new Everton stadium site agreed:



1.) 23 Mar 2017 19:29:38
Yep and sky have brought jim white in to announce it. Long way to go but things are progressing.



07 Mar 2017 07:46:43
Apparently Bayern interested in Seamus Colemn. Only surprise to me is he has not been linked with others recently. Has to be one of the best right backs not playing in Europe.


{Ed002's Note - There is no interest whatsoever in Coleman from Bayern Munich Degsy.}

1.) 07 Mar 2017 08:57:31
ok thank goodness Ed. Are any other clubs after him? Seems to me he is one of our most consistent players and probably one of the top full backs around not playing in European competition. If I was manager of any "top" club I would be seriously trying to lure him with European football. assuming we needed a right back.

{Ed002's Note - After being told that another player will not be available to them, there is residual interest from Manchester United re-emerging in Seamus Coleman - but he will be no more than secdond or third pick for them depending on the availability of others.}

Interesting quote from the BBC Rumours page: Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon says he would like to play for "a club like Everton", but the 25-year-old does not believe he is good enough for "the top five in England". (Voetbal International, via Sun) . Isn't he Dutch? I wonder why he has allegedly said this? Perhaps he is trying to manouvre a move? Any thoughts Ed002?


{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it, but if it was said to a Dutch media outlet then it would likely be a link to Ronald Koeman - perhaps last year he said Southampton. I would read nothing in to it at all.}

1.) 07 Feb 2017 13:12:15
Degsy if he is not good enough in his opinion to play for a top 5 side then he is not good enough to play for us. His negativity would go round faster than the waltzes at Southport fun fair.

2.) 07 Feb 2017 13:12:32
The Dutch link was obviously my guess. I guess we are all craving this success so badly we willmake 2 plu 2 = 1,000,000.

3.) 07 Feb 2017 20:10:32
Degsy I am sure my bank works off the same maths sheet, especially when it comes to bank charges.



03 Feb 2017 18:28:59
Did anyone else see the Koeman pre match interview today? Wow he says the right things. He is a born winner and I would hate to be someone who wound him up in the dressing room. You certainly know who is boss and exactly what he wants.


1.) 03 Feb 2017 19:40:29
Hi Degsy too right there mate, its been a long time time coming but thank goodness Everton got their man cheers, GuernseyBlue.

2.) 03 Feb 2017 22:04:30
I've not seen the interview but from what you have said it's no wonder he's got rid of the so called deadwood. Good luck to the youngsters who have took the chance with both hands and have gone for it I've not seen many better midfielders than Davies for there age.



01 Feb 2017 11:38:28
Has the Kone deal gone through. No sign in the media.


1.) 01 Feb 2017 16:03:27
Nah. didn't get done in time.

Dear Mr Kenwright, I would just like to say a big thank you for putting up with some unfair comments from supporters who misunderstood your intentions over the years. I for one had no doubt about your loyalty to Everton Football Club, having witnessed you talking to a small boy in Goodison Road some years back. The words you spoke to him were obviously from a supporter and not a businessman. I am sure you are as excited as I am by the news of our potential new ground and wanted you to know (assuming you read these pages) that the vast majority of Evertonians were behind you and the club 100%. let's now move on to the next chapter of creating even more history for Everton Football Club. Thank you. (Well Ed, you never know. he might just read these pages? )


{Ed001's Note - I don't think he does, he certainly never used to. He is 100% a supporter first, lover of the city of Liverpool as a whole second and businessman third.}

1.) 23 Mar 2017 19:32:16
Absolutely made up I am. We are on the up.

2.) 23 Mar 2017 18:33:20
Hi Degsy good post that mate, over the years many posters on here have slated Bill Kenwright, but i for one am really grateful for all he has done for Everton Football Club and hope when he steps down and when we get a new stadium it would be a nice compliment to him to have part of it named after him, GuernseyBlue.

3.) 23 Mar 2017 18:58:24
Took a lot of stick Bill, but unlike other clubs, he remained ensuring it was a football Club steeped in history and not a boys toy. Mossi has now seen the true meaning of our club and we have Bill to thank for this.

4.) 23 Mar 2017 20:39:13
Ditto that Baz mate, GuernseyBlue.

5.) 23 Mar 2017 22:44:49
I have stuck up for Kenwright many times when a few were slating him. I think he deserves a bit of praise now.

6.) 24 Mar 2017 05:50:10
Now we finally know where the Arteta money went :)

7.) 24 Mar 2017 12:12:13
Corrie, Arteta and Jake Bidwell money being used at last.



19 Mar 2017 08:30:37
Last 10 games and we won 7, drew 2 and lost 1. Do that 4 times a season and we are champions. Is that too much to hope for next season? Please Lord I promise to pray every day and be as good as I can.


{Ed025's Note - i dont really see you as a devout church going bible basher degsy, praying to the lord ozzie maybe mate.. :)

1.) 19 Mar 2017 09:54:39
That's who I was talking to Ed. And the angel Cahill!

{Ed025's Note - love it degs..



16 Mar 2017 08:04:28
I want to chip in with my Lukaku view. There are certain facts that need to be remembered. Emotion comes into it because we are Everton and we like loyalty and want success. Now some facts: Firstly he signed a 4 or 5 year deal a couple of years ago and is tied to us for 2 more years. If we like, we canmake him stay one or two of those years. He is a much improved player in recent games. But he is still not the "complete" player and his hold up skills need improving further. If we sell him this summer or in 12 months time, we will have a lot of money tospend on a replacement. By then, he might want to stick with us? The only thing that has changed, is that his agent said he was 99.999% sure he was ready to sign a new contract a week ago. and now says he wants to move. So what? He is still under contract. He might still sign a new contract within 12 months? We might get offered silly money for him? Steve Waalsh might have a kid in sight with similar potential? Too many ifs and buts for me tobe even slightly worried. Added to the fact. I really believe that although he is a goal machine, we lose something as a team with regards to playing on the break with him. Someone like Shane Long scores so many less goals, but his hold up play and inclusion in build upplay means the rest of the team score more. Maybe that's what we need now? For sure Lookman and Calvert Lewin look like they will score bagfuls when alittle bit more mature. Imagine either of these 2 with a Shane Long type player holding it up for them to run onto.




14 Mar 2017 17:54:27
Latest is that Lukaku has now said he has rejected a new contract offer. One that is the best Everton have ever offered. I think we all know what happens next. just a matter of how soon.


{Ed002's Note - I explained the issue the other day - he won't sign a contract that will price him out of the move to a high-end Champions League club that he desires - and that is not unreasonable.}

1.) 14 Mar 2017 23:00:50
The last I had heard was that he was 99.999% sure he was signing a contract. This is news to me. I obviously never saw your post Ed002. And no, it is not a surprise which is why I said I think we all knowwhat happens next. As in Everton will keep himfor now until a suitable offer is recieved. Then we will let him go. It will probably be in the Summer.

{Ed004's Note - What do Everton fans make of his recent non-commitment? Is the general consensus that wait until the summer get a decent fee for him, probably around 60 mill if I was to guess, and just replace him? From watching very few of his games I'm not sure he has the touch to play for teams in the top 6 and in Europe who come up against parked buses each week but play him for a counter attacking side and he is lethal}

2.) 14 Mar 2017 23:47:02
ed004, you have pretty much summed the lad up. I'm not too sure which champions league team would come in for him, I suppose it depends on the price. He has been lethal in games over the last few years and is certainly progressing as a player, bit of work on his touch and his aerial ability is where he could improve. I want to keep him as long as possible as forwards who score 20+ goals per season are hard to come by and quite expensive. But if he wants to go then we need to get the best possible deal that suits us, we have shown in the past that we don't sell too cheaply. As for your question, I'm not too bothered about the way this is dragging out, it was always going to be a complicated and protracted deal. We only hear snippets from media outlets such as sky sports news and other unreliable net based sites, so it is hard to comment. If it's true that the club want some sort of 90m buy out clause but his people want it nearer 70m then I would expect some negotiation and him to sign. Even if he did sign a new contract, I would still expect him to go in the next 12 months. If that happens then I hope we get in a decent replacement first.

{Ed004's Note - Thanks for the reply. He has certainly been improving but he still lacks the hold up play that I think teams require now at the top stage. The likes of Lewandowski, Benzema and Suarez etc are all excellent on the ball and Lukaku has only really shown that in glimpses and his record vs the top teams is concerning.
I agree wth you that I think a compromise will be found but anything near or over 70 million and that is some business by Everton}

3.) 15 Mar 2017 00:07:10
Never been a big fan of Lukaku, yes he can score goals but until the last few games, his work rate has not been up with the best, not often he celebrates when a team mate score instead of him, not a month go bye without the guy sprouting Champions league football, he's ambitious but cannot be helping in the dressing room, me myself, I would sell the guy if a big offer came in.
If he stays and we get a poor start it will be the same again, bring in a replacement and take the money.

{Ed004's Note - He has his flaws but it'll be a struggle to replace him. I hear Hull have some new forward that's been banging them in tho... even got himself one against Liverpool}

4.) 15 Mar 2017 00:41:56
No worries ed004. You're right, he isn't at the level of the players that you mention but, in comparison to them, he does have time on his side. Easy to forget that the lad is only 23 but I would expect him to hit similar heights when he reaches the same age as the likes of Lewandowski or Benzema. As fans of EFC, we still have to be realistic and admit that this improvement may not be with us but we will get a hefty fee if he does leave.
I honestly think they will compromise the clause, if that is what is really holding up the deal, and it will be around 70/ 75m. Either way, it's still a pretty profit on what we paid out for him. Let's just hope the fans don't start jumping all over him if he does go, he's been as good for us as we've been for him. Everton will still go on and so will Rom.

{Ed004's Note - I think best case scenario for Everton is that they can agree to keep him for one more season and build a team around him next year that can compete with the top 6. I don't think you are currently far of it either. You've a very strong midfield but your defence and lack of a top winger is letting you down slightly and you will also of had koeman for a year so players will be used to him.}

Koeman's Twitter feed:

Happy manager! Three points and another clean sheet. Great tribute to Alex Young #coyb Everton #EFC

The goals Rooney scored last season came in a poor Utd team and he was playing a deeper role. Pinging passes all over the place. He has at least 3 more seasons in him at the top in my opinion. He sorted his attitude out some years ago and since then has easily been the best English player around. Yes there are some good youngsters coming through now, but Rooney is still one of the best. We should be trying to get the best. Emotional stuff like he is still an Evertonian should not come into it. We should be going for the best players and in my opinion, he still is a top player.

I don't want to knock RM. I did enough of that when he was our manager. he is nothing to do with us now. I would just like to know what the stats are for defending set pieces. Gut feel tells me we have conceded very few since we started defending them in training. Apparently RM stated that we never practiced set pieces under his reign. could that be a reason? Just a thought.

Bluetooth, ok you are talking about next season. I get that point. But I never said we should not buy another player? I am not sure where you got that from? All I was saying was that Koeman picks Williams and A N Other or plays a back 3.

He has not started with Jags and Mori alone as far as I am aware. But he has played Williams and Jags. He has also played Williams and Mori. Of course I agree with you that both Jags and Williams are on borrowed time.

Your argument that Swansea battled relegation for years is not quite 100% right too. They were one place below us 2016 in 12th. They were 8th 2015 and we were 11th. They were 12th 2014 when we got 5th.

So not exactly battling relegation with Williamsin the team. But I agree that this season they are battling relegation without him. My point about leaders is that you don't have to be a world class player.

You have to have a good head and be an organiser. But hey, let's not fall out. I actually get your point about next season. I just don't agree that Williams is as bad as you say. and our results sort of prove my case.

We are top of the table for 2017 with 7 wins out of our last 10 games which is a lot better than we have been for some years and to say this is all because of Robles does not fit in with me.

Sorry Bluetooth, I am with Koeman. I trust him more than you whatever you say mate. And I have to say something must be right. last 10 games = 7 wins and 2 draws. You don't do that because of a keeper alone. I believe that Williams is strong and a proven leader. An organiser. He did it at Swansea who are missing him dreadfully and Jags looked awful last season and is clearly not an organiser of defences. I played for many years myself and the successful teams all had an organiser on the pitch. A Peter Reid, a Roy Keane, a John Terry. some teams have more than one organiser and they are generally successful. But Mori and Jags are not in this bracket in my view. and in Koeman's from what I have seen of the defences he has picked.

Williams partners either Jags or Mori. Our winning runs have all had Williams in the team. I agree that at times he looks slow, but look at the stats of wins and clean sheets when he plays. Koeman sees someting and although Jags and Mori are in and out the team. Williams is a first pick. I would rather go with Koeman's choice than yours guys. no disrespect meant. but I think he has more knowledge.

Sounds like an idea worth exploring. However, my gut feel tells me that United are trying to rebuild in the same manner as ourselves. But they have a lot more dosh and a lot more "recent" Champions League history. A great young player like Rashford is likely tobe part of their plans. Whereas an ageing Rooney might be considered assurplus to requirements.
