Apparently we've offered 90k a week for Tarkowski on a free. We've really not learnt our lesson have we.


1.) 23 May 2022 17:51:50
Yeah bit steep them wages fc if true mate but would be good edition if he joined am hoping maybe mina would be going out like before we consider getting players.

2.) 23 May 2022 18:35:30
40k increase on what he is on at the movement I don't think so, good player but not worth 90K per week. Outs before Ins as we need to address out finances big time. If we could get rid of Mina and Gomes Gbamin and Allan then with the 5 outgoings and the unlikelihood of signing either loanee's our wage bill will be significantly reduced. That may give us a bit of leeway to sign one or two players and put a chunk towards the financial issue we have. Speculation of course but with the club being is such a financial mess I'm not getting my hope up for a mass overhaul of players even if we have to sell all our major assets.

3.) 23 May 2022 19:06:35
If true then do agree £90k per week does seem steep.

However is on a free so would imagine that’s been factored into that figure.

Also Tosun a player who has hardly played but has just left so that’s £80k per week off wage bill.

So for an extra £10k per week we’d be getting a player in a position we need cover for, who’s played in the league and would improve the squad.

Obviously all speculation and no idea if true, but if it was it wouldn’t seem the worst deal.

However not sure how it fits in with current profit and sustainability situation.

4.) 23 May 2022 22:47:44
He is on 50K per week now, is 29 and only 6 feet 1 inches tall and was part of a relegated team that let in 53 goals. We should be able to do better and build for the future, not replace what we have with the same or marginally better players at elevated salaries. Not sure what our scouts and DOF do, is Burnley as far as they get?

5.) 23 May 2022 23:57:58
Agree Mike we should be able to do better, however we haven’t previously and now are restricted on how much we can spend due to previous errors.

All speculation regards Tarkowski however:

He’s a free transfer so I’d imagine wages would be increased to include a signing on bonus, as I’d imagine it would look better on our books if that was in wages over period of contract rather than a lump sum at starts.

Also yes he was part of a team that got relegated. He conceded 51 goals, however we conceded 58 goals.

He was also the one centreback who played virtually every game but due to injuries to team mates (Lawton and Mee) rarely had a solid pairing.

Is he a top signing - no.

Is he better than we have - probably

Is he a leader on the pitch - yes

Is he a good stop gap until we get more financially secure - yes.

6.) 24 May 2022 06:35:31
Today’s papers say £120k a week.

7.) 24 May 2022 08:18:51
What are fans feelings towards selling Mina and using Keane Holgate Godfrey Braithwaite and Welch and i get we have been poor defensively this season but if we bring Anthony Barry in that would be an amazing bit of business as he is the reason Chelsea sorted their defence out.

8.) 24 May 2022 09:01:07
Money aside is Tarkowski any better than what we already have? surely not another bargain basement signing from a relegated side!
Surely we need to look for players that have experience the other end of the league with a winning mentality!

9.) 24 May 2022 09:23:53
wakka57 we can't afford experienced players playing in the top 6 and yes I would sell mina and go with what we have and maybe look to a loan on reasonable wage.

10.) 24 May 2022 10:28:35
sa90 surely we have squandered the money by paying overinflated prices and ridiculous wages to average players over the last few years, this is why we can no longer afford them.
Mina is our best CB but constantly injured, Holgate is not up to it and Godfrey only developed as a stand in right back but I do not see him challenging as a CB.
Look at Tomori that went to Milan from Chelsea he was less money than Mina I believe young and developing.

11.) 24 May 2022 11:06:57
Tarkowski would be an alright signing if we were clearing out the defence and managed to get rid of Mina, Keane and Holgate whilst paying Tarkowski the same wages he is on or marginally more. Loan Welch out, Branthwaite, Godfrey, Tarkowski and try and get a solid centre crack which would be difficult under our finance difficulties. Another way to look at it may be getting Branthwaite cover if we could get him loaned out. Once again though, high wages and a long contract should be a huge no no. We need to clear players out first though.

12.) 24 May 2022 11:48:43
wakka57 I agree with what you have said, I just don't think we have the finances to get another highly paid CB that costs a fair amount of cash. If we sell both Keane and Holgate as well as Mina then that's a different conversation.

13.) 24 May 2022 12:13:12
What’s happened to Lewis Gibson the up and coming centreback we signed from Newcastle for a fee that could rise to £6m!

Would keep Holgate, branthwaite and Godfrey and add an experienced player to those 3. If that’s Tarkowski then think that would be decent.

If we can move mina and Keane on to raise some money and clear some wages that would also be ok.

14.) 24 May 2022 17:06:25
Holgate was performing better towards end of the season and a goal threat. Keep Holgate, Godfrey, Branthwaite. Sell Mina (injured) and possibly Keane if bringing in Tarkowski.

15.) 24 May 2022 19:22:16
One day we'll learn but I'm not holding out much hope. They said after the Wimbledon game "never again" its happened twice since. C'mon Everton, get it right!

16.) 24 May 2022 20:07:53
GD, Gibson was on loan at Sheff We'd last season. His season was blighted by injuries so it doesn't tell us much really.

17.) 24 May 2022 22:15:28
Cheers BP was unaware of that.
However with all the fanfare made about us signing him as he was the next up and coming defender surprised he’s not getting a mention as being in contention next season.

18.) 25 May 2022 14:11:26
Tarkowski is good, but not worth those wages. Hopefully the rumour that Villa offered him way more than us is true.

A Wednesday fan I know said Gibson looked good on the rare occasion he left the treatment room, but did poorly at Reading the year before.



05 Jan 2022 22:15:17
Newcastle offered 22.5mil plus longstaff for digne according to SSN.


1.) 05 Jan 2022 22:26:38
According to Fabrizio Romano there’s no chance he’s going to Newcastle.

Apparently will go this window and probably to a premier league team.

He’s usually very good with his info.

2.) 05 Jan 2022 22:34:45
Yeah he is Dan. The fact a player would be coming in as well makes the news look less likely as well but SSN don't usually report things that have no basis.

You never know though they might just be reporting it to get people making bets on sky betting.

3.) 05 Jan 2022 22:44:30
Could be right regards betting angle Chris.

Also by them saying Longstaff involved - a player Rafa previously interested in - makes it seem a bit more believable.

Could all be genuine - but if player doesn’t want move highly unlikely would happen

Will be interesting to see what the other supposed interested clubs come up with as an offer of the Newcastle one is genuine.

4.) 05 Jan 2022 22:45:32
Think I’d probably take that to be honest.

5.) 05 Jan 2022 22:56:10
Swap deals aren’t common so I’d be surprised if it happened. The problem is every man and his dog are linked with Newcastle at the moment - bit like us for the last few seasons as people knew there was money to spend.

6.) 05 Jan 2022 23:23:26
An hour later and now SSN reporting we made an offer for Longstaff ?

Got to love transfer season, nobody really knows what transfers will or won’t happen.

7.) 05 Jan 2022 23:44:40
Is longstaff even any good?

8.) 06 Jan 2022 00:08:02
No but neither is what we have.

9.) 06 Jan 2022 00:11:51
No idea BD but think Rafa rates him from his time at Newcastle.

Not sure how we’re going to recruit any more players though without any other outgoings as sure Ed002 previously said only had space for 1 more player.

So with 2 signed and Digne on his way doesn’t look like room for anyone else unless we move others on.

Any of the Ed’s know if we have any other potential sales lined up?

{Ed002's Note - Everton has a bunch of players available and contracts running out. Something can be done with Tosun this month but Everton will need to accept whatever Besiktas off. Allan would be available this month if fit but the club may find it difficult to find a buyer, so it seems unlikely. Delph might be available this month but it would depend on an addition in all probabilty.}

10.) 06 Jan 2022 09:38:43
Longstaff is a very strong midfielder, an improvement on what we have at Everton.

11.) 06 Jan 2022 13:41:55
My Newcastle mate raves about Longstaff and says he would be gutted to lose him
There are reports we have bid for him but it’s not linked to any deal with Digne
Also a few rumours about Vecino who’s contract is coming to an end in the summer not sure if this is more to do with old links being resurrected.

12.) 06 Jan 2022 17:39:08
Take Longstaff all day long when you see some of ours.

13.) 07 Jan 2022 07:29:43
I'd be shocked if Digne ends up at Newcastle. I'm still hoping he might stay, but seems unlikely, he's not had the best couple of seasons but then again, Everton haven't been great either.

{Ed025's Note - i hope he leaves tomtom, it will free up money to buy someone who actually wants to be here mate..

14.) 07 Jan 2022 11:04:36
Yeh I see your point, but I like the guy, does he want to leave or is it just a clash of personalities with Rafa? If he doesn't want to play for us I agree we should sell ASAP.

15.) 07 Jan 2022 13:18:37
Longstaff would be a replacement for Allan, who hasn't got the energy required for the Premiership.



17 Dec 2021 06:26:44
Dinamo Kiev manager announced that Mykolenko has left for Everton. With us having to sell to buy and Digne's lack of involvement recently you'd assume he's off. Fee for Mykolenko rumoured to be 20mil, we wouldn't be spending that on a cover player. Hopefully we get more than that for digne and save some in the wages too.

Tbh I can't say I'm sad to see digne go, his heart hasn't been in it for a long time now. His forward and defensive play has been really poor this season and last season.


1.) 17 Dec 2021 08:03:13
I think Newcastle will take him.

2.) 17 Dec 2021 08:23:56
spot on mate i think that is great business from Rafa. my brother and me can't stand him anymore after that first season he just lost interest. can't defend, can't take a player on, always cuts back, and when he does cross its usually always blocked by the first man! Mykolenko looks like he could develop into a great player young fast aggresive good pace like to take a player on. hopefully this is the start of some smart recruitment.

3.) 17 Dec 2021 08:35:40
Can Newcastle sign Iwobi as well…. please.

4.) 17 Dec 2021 10:48:46
I'd throw Iwobi in as a freebe.

5.) 17 Dec 2021 11:26:39
The kid's having his medical apparently, Chris. This is what we need. Reasonably priced players, deals done quickly and quietly for players hungry to learn and succeed. Look at the Czech boys moyes got at hammers, bargains them.

6.) 17 Dec 2021 11:59:18
Anybody with a name like that is welcome at my club. To be known as Blue Myk from now on.

7.) 17 Dec 2021 12:50:16
With Ukraine on their winter break, makes sense to get him through any isolation etc coming into the country before he can officially sign. Hopefully Digne will still bring a decent fee so we can bring another in with the money, can't see us doing this unless we already had a firm offer though.

8.) 17 Dec 2021 13:17:18
It's nice to see the club get deals done early and not wait until deadline day. You'd assume Digne is lined up to go somewhere. Anyone know? Ed02?

{Ed002's Note - Beck has spoken to a number of clubs about Digne and I guess there is an outside chance Juventus may bite as they have an issue with how Sandro has been performing. The issue is that clubs will likely look for a loan with an option to buy as January is not the ideal time for transfers.}

9.) 17 Dec 2021 15:18:16
Saddens me how quickly we turn our back on players. Not long ago he was touted (by the supporters) as the best left back in the Premiership. Now we’re getting all excited at spending close to 20m on a player nobody has ever heard of.

10.) 17 Dec 2021 17:02:28
It’s not that quick Bob, he’s been underperforming for a good while now.

11.) 17 Dec 2021 18:32:19
There’s no one player bigger than the club.

12.) 17 Dec 2021 18:36:14
I’m getting giddy that we might sign a player early in the window, it’s unheard of!

{Ed025's Note - its just not us mate..

13.) 17 Dec 2021 19:04:14
Fans doing it again believing everything they read.
Do you recall “our kids must be rubbish” and everyone believing that crap.
If you want to know how good he is, just watch the calibration of the clubs that come in for him.
To listen to you lot you would think he was the only player going through a dip in form. But hey Rafa doesn’t like him so he must be crap.

14.) 17 Dec 2021 20:43:07
Might need to check your own calibration Woburn mate.

15.) 17 Dec 2021 21:52:26
Yea that should have said calibre JB. Speed typing with fat fingers, never good??.

16.) 17 Dec 2021 21:55:49
Are fans believing everything they read Woburn? I haven't read anything about digne's form being atrocious. but I do believe by eyes with which I have seen his form being atrocious for a sustained period of time.

17.) 17 Dec 2021 20:26:50
Ed002 you’re very knowledgeable when it comes to transfers. Is this mykolenko rumour true? Been reported in several different publications.

If it is true are you aware of how we are going to fund it as we’re already in a precarious position with ffp and spending just shy of £20m doesn’t appear to be in keeping with what we need to do regards ffp.

18.) 19 Dec 2021 15:27:30
Fabrizio confirmed it and he's had his medical too.

19.) 20 Dec 2021 02:36:43
Ed002 - I have the same/ similar question as Gingerdan above.

You said in another post that EFC would have submitted their FFP figures to the EPL in June last year

Maybe not 100% related but it appears that, as a result, we could only spend 1.7 million in the summer transfer window

Now, with no other FFP submissions since June we are supposed to be spending 20 million on this left back and being associated with many others

What could have happened between the summer transfer window and the one coming up that would make this change possible?

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what you are on about. I have never said Everton could only spend £1.7M last summer.}

20.) 20 Dec 2021 12:33:40
I never said you did ED

I said that you had said Everton would have submitted their FFP returns last June including the year ending 30th June 2021

We ended up only spending last summer 1.7m and a lot of people, not you per say, have said it was related to FFP difficulties

What could have changed since then that would allow us to spend a lot more this January such as the approx 20 million this new proposed left back is said to be costing


{Ed002's Note - Ask whoever told you that Everton could only spend £1.7M last summer.}

21.) 20 Dec 2021 12:45:00
I thought I'd go to the expert i. e. you ED

Have you not said in the past that Everton have FFP difficulties

Simple question . Do they still have them and, if so, how bad


{Ed002's Note - Yes Everton have FFP issues and they are very bad.}

22.) 20 Dec 2021 13:36:02
Thanks Ed
I appreciate it's not completely clear and that you are giving us the best info you can

Many thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - It is perfectly clear - Everton are in a financial mess and have FFP issues.}

23.) 21 Dec 2021 12:29:06
@bw one thing that would slightly factor in is that ffp is a rolling 3 year period and while we're still massively up against it, we did just replace a 90m+ summer with a 1.7m one in the most recent 3 years whenever it is next reported.

{Ed002's Note - It is two years at the moment and Everton are in a huge fiancial mess and losing vast amounts of money.}



24 May 2021 14:17:22
So out of contract this summer we have:


Olsen loan comes to an end.

I have heard Bernard and mina want out, can't blame Bernard for wanting to play. James will probably leave, barely plays anyway.

I really don't think we will be able to ship anyone else out. Can't see who would want them and the players wouldn't get their stupid wages anywhere else.

This mess will take years to untangle.


1.) 24 May 2021 18:41:20
Should make good money from Mina or keep him, Bernard will be a nominal amount but he's on high wages so it's upto him to reduce his demands if he wants a move.
Need a decent replacement for Mina as he's our best CB. Could do with selling Keane as he's not getting any younger and isn't a leader so can't be paired with a young CB. Also if keane is in the team we are automatically 20yds further back as a team.

2.) 25 May 2021 11:28:07
Kenny will also likely move on.

3.) 25 May 2021 18:59:38
Iwobi could leave on loan I guess?



23 Dec 2020 21:59:22
Can any of the Eds please please give us some news about a league 1 side being in for Davies?


{Ed025's Note - i have not heard anything on that chris, but i cant see him aiming that high mate..

1.) 24 Dec 2020 12:49:27
In local paper down here in Plymouth Herald they are looking at him to improve their under 23s.

2.) 24 Dec 2020 13:49:20
I think that you are being to hard on Davies. Yes he as not progressed like we would have liked but he gives his all every time he plays unlike a lot of our squad who are stealing money from the club. Davies is a good backup and squad player.
I would get rid of Siggy, Gomes, Bernard, Tosun, Bolasie, Delph, Besic, before Davies.

3.) 24 Dec 2020 12:23:06
Ed, I honestly don't see what others see in Tom including Carlo, because I have seen (like everyone else) players with more to their game than him, getting benched loaned out sold for peanuts maybe and yet here we are scratching our heads in bewilderment .

4.) 25 Dec 2020 19:44:14
People say they can't see what fans see in Davies I'm at a Loss at how quick fans are to jump all over the kids back I even seen one on twitter blame him for the loss against Utd the issue with a lot of our fans is they pick a scapegoat and that is it no matter what he does he is dammed my view is if Carlos sees something in him and he's picked he will have my full support as will any player who wears the royal blue jersey as that's what Everton fans used to do it seems a lot of fans have forgotten that.




FatChris89's banter posts with other poster's replies to FatChris89's banter posts


28 Jul 2022 15:20:48
Dwight McNeil. Really? What is with this club buying relegated teams players. And another winger. This LB from sporting can supposedly play on the wing and he must be playing there because we already have 2 LBs. So why another winger? Supposedly 20m for someone with 0 assists and 1 goal in 38 games.

Already got Townsend, gray, Gordon, iwobi, who can all play on the wing and all have better goals assists returns. Then add to that the new lad from sporting and Dobbin.

Can anyone seriously explain to me why we are spending our stupidly limited funds on the one position we already have too many players for?

I'm proper f'in fuming about this.


1.) 28 Jul 2022 15:27:08
Maybe because of our shortage of left footers in the squad.

2.) 28 Jul 2022 15:40:11
Chris, this got posted on the discussion page .

"Some perspective .

Whilst i am aware that McNeil isn't the type of signing to get everyone excited, imo he is a good addition to the team. He is young so has potential to improve. He has sell on value and he has a good bit of size about him and will only improve from a physical aspect.

First and foremost we need to realise that he is an honest player who will graft whilst he is on the pitch, something we lack across the pitch and are in serious need of.

I think it is a little unfair for people to be looking at him as a direct Richy replacement. Given our financial predicament, we were never going to be able to get 1 signing in that would replace or better Richys output for a fee that we could afford. However, getting multiple players in that would strengthen the team as a whole would be more realistic.

Its clear that McNeil's goals and assists numbers were poor last season but i think you have to take into account he was playing in a Burnley side that scored even less than us last season. They lost there main striker who didn't have a bad record for them. His underlying numbers however weren't too bad.

Taking Townsend out of the equation, who we are without anyway, he is by far our best crosser at the club which will be music to Dom's ears. Add that to the set-pieces for the likes of Tark and Yerry as well and it can only be seen as a positive. He completed more passes into the final third than any of our players last year and completed more dribbles than anybody in the premier league other than the fella who tore us a new one at St James park.

When you look at years previous to last, McNeil posted better numbers, numbers that would usually put him around the same as our second and third creators for last season

Where McNeil may not necessarily impress with his attacking numbers he makes up for it defensively. He was fifth last year in both pressures and blocks, which for a winger is impressive. He completed more tackles and interceptions than any of our wingers last season which can only be deemed a positive. If we can win the ball higher up the pitch, that can only translate to more opportunities for us to score.

I think a switch from left to right midfield will also see an improvement for him cutting in on his preferred left foot. We all saw the goal he scored at Goodison so there is clear ability there.

Give the lad a break and get behind him. If you ask me, he is a much better winger than what we already have at the club so how can we moan. "

3.) 28 Jul 2022 15:53:57
You need to calm down perhaps. It's not a difficult concept, Nkunku not good enough is my suspicion and will be moved out, so Vinagre and Mykolenko competing for lb.
Townsend suffered a horrific injury so can't be reliant on him can we.
Gray or Gordon can play central behind DCL, so expect one to do that And the other on the wing with McNeil. Plus it's hardly a burgeoning squad, just look at how hard we were hit by injuries last year.
I'm happy with the McNeil signing and really couldn't care that he's from a relegation team (just like Doucoure, Richarlison, Gueye, Godfrey, Jagielka, Harry Maguire, Joe Cole, James Milner Andrew Robertson, Buendia, Di Canio, (i want to say Roy Keane too!? ) , and countless many others. I guess teams should just ignore a relegated player eh.

4.) 28 Jul 2022 16:03:10
Well FatChris89 have you heard we’re skint, will be fighting for survival again so why would you think that we can do much better.
This guy is a left footer who can switch to the right side. He is full of energy and tracks back and tackles well.
At 22 he has good sell on potential, so he’s exactly what we should be looking for.
If DCL can get his act together, we may just be in with a shout of an event free season, yes boring but until we get out of this financial mess, this is us for a few years.
We’ll get at least 1 more, if not 2 in before the window closes, probably in the middle of the park.

5.) 28 Jul 2022 16:23:37
Buying from relegated clubs isn't a problem. Good players exist in poor teams. Vinagre is a good signing. I do share a significant skepticism about signing McNeil as expressed previously and now is the time to vent at any frustrations but that must be short lived as we need to support the player even if we don't trust the board.

6.) 28 Jul 2022 18:57:02
Don't buy players people moan buy players people moan.

7.) 28 Jul 2022 21:45:37
Agree blue-tit and share your thoughts chris. Bonkers.
We are spending in all the incorrect areas yet again. I know vinagre was free but we still have to pay him. Yes we want young players where appropriate, it's no issue buying from relegated teams. My frustration is that we have f/ all money to spend and the worst central midfield and central defense in the league so chucking 20 million at a player that doesn't play in either of those positions is utter madness and proves the recruitment is as bad as ever (I'm fine with the lack of signings) don't buy for the sake of it which is what the club is doing yet again. If we cannot get the player that we need then move on. Personally fed up. We will be relegation bait if Keane and/ or holgate feature as well as the likes of gomes allan and Davies.
The priority had to be, central midfield at least 1, another centre back and a striker/ number 10.

8.) 28 Jul 2022 22:52:04
Christ, give it a rest. Mcneil will probably play Central or right side cutting in on his left foot with Gordon or gray from left.

Wee need to support who puts on the shirt, regardless. We have to live within our means and shop at aldi for a while. We cannot shop at harrods any more.

9.) 28 Jul 2022 22:53:31
I'll wait till window closes then decide, the teams mostly terrible yes but now we are buying grafters and this type of player is where we are, maybe Frank doesn't rate 90% of the players or like us he sees how bad they are, let's see how this window looks when the dust settles could be a few more twists and turns yet.

10.) 28 Jul 2022 23:01:50
Ill never get why people just don't give players a chance before they've even played a game.
We aren't in the position to pick n choose.

11.) 29 Jul 2022 00:04:13
Didn't hear anyone moaning bout signing Gueye from a relegated team?

12.) 29 Jul 2022 12:40:50
Buying the odd player from relegated teams is fine. But when they make up the majority of your recent signings is anyone really surprised we were in a relegation battle? and more than likely will again. It's easy to name the odd few players from relegated teams that are good but for every good player there's 20 that were terrible.

And I'm not not getting behind a player. Simply stating his stats and making the point we already have players that play on the wing that have better returns, all whilst we are crying out for a CDM and a CM. People trying to use the argument "we are skint" as reason to get him, well that's the exact argument I'm using as to why we shouldn't have got him. We should strengthen areas that we need, not increase depth in areas we are already covered.

It's just more of the same from our clubs recruitment. I'm tired of it.



20 Jul 2022 18:04:17
Club app says kick off is 1.00 Wednesday. Has the game already been played or is the day wrong?

If it's tomorrow 1am, anyone staying up to watch it?

Think it’s 01:00 Thursday morning for us (Wednesday for USA) .

Dismal same old problems defensively a complete car crash. Set pieces we look like an amateur side. Michael Keane is just killing us. It may be a friendly and just the start of the pre season but very concerning. Hate to say it but Gordon looks v unhappy. Davies isn't Premier league standard.

3.) 21 Jul 2022 01:58:18
It's 8:00 pm EST. Don't bother watching, half-time and we are 3-0 down. God help us when the season starts. I know it is all about fitness but we just can't continue to make stupid defensive mistakes.

4.) 21 Jul 2022 03:09:17
No idea why rondon is still being tried out waste of time. Gbamin is a beef cake if the injuries are behind him he's worth keeping. Mills looks a talent. Defence a huge concern. Upfront we are relegated if dcl gets injured or doesn't find form. We may get 3 players but there's 5 atleast in that squad who aren't Premier league or even close.

5.) 21 Jul 2022 05:34:45
Rondon because either the kids are not good enough/ trusted. Lampard like those before him, obviously sees something in these we seebas failing.

6.) 21 Jul 2022 06:39:50
Looks seriously bad on paper but for me I never take the pre season seriously. I remember us flying in pre season back in the day, I'm thinking wow we look great, but it turned out we were absolutely ? that season, I think it obviously highlights shortcomings but I wouldn't take it seriously, they guys are just warming up for the start of season, . I hope ?.

Take the positives and move on. Nice shorts, now we move on!

What does everyone think of Dennis? Never watched him play.


1.) 26 Jun 2022 22:01:36
Scored 10 goals in a poor Watford team.
Can play across the frontline.
Is apparently available for around £20m.
Would be a no brainer for me if we sell Richarlison.

2.) 26 Jun 2022 22:59:16
Good player but would have concerns over his attitude, caused problems at Brugge including missing a CL game v Dortmund after storming off the team coach because he couldn't sit in his favourite seat. Fc Koln Dof said he was not an easy person to work with. That being said, i haven't heard of any issues at Watford so maybe he's sorted his head out.

3.) 26 Jun 2022 23:08:40
Dennis Irwin. Great full back player for Man u. His best days are behind him and its doubtful he'd come out of retirement for us, however he would improve our team.

4.) 26 Jun 2022 23:45:25
Agree. I think we should 100 percent go for Dennis.



23 May 2022 10:40:10
I'm both really excited and really can't be arsed with the transfer window. Hoping we get rid of a lot of the deadwood/ freeloaders. But and the same time the constant lies and click bait fries my brain.


1.) 23 May 2022 17:30:49
I'm not even going to think about it till seasons start, don't hold much hope we will get anything right based on past signings.

2.) 25 May 2022 09:20:03
I always say that as well wolf but then I get sucked right in to it all, can't help it.



24 Apr 2022 15:27:37
As much as I hate to say it. I don't think we will get out of the bottom 3 now. It's a sad day.


1.) 24 Apr 2022 15:49:50
Cmon Chris mate because we will.

2.) 24 Apr 2022 15:49:51
Terrible team selection holgate playing is a red card
Please for god's sake get lampard out of our club
And Burnley winning we are now doomed
I said it at the start of the season we could get relegated and I got slammed for it
Well now it looks like I was right
FM fault not lampards or Rafa but FM.

3.) 24 Apr 2022 15:50:36
Simply have to get a win today or against Chelsea now, nothing less will do.

4.) 24 Apr 2022 15:51:06
And still we have certain supporters on here that are happy. Watch what you say Chris on here you will get called a troll if your not happy with being in the bottom 3.Wise up Everton roll your shirts up and show us what your made of. Need to get stuck into this reds you owe it to us fans. We are not happy well most of us aren’t happy still a few ejits who are happy.

5.) 24 Apr 2022 16:02:40
I'm just worried how many other teams will roll over to Burnley. Can't see a win today I hate to say. Can't even see a team who will fight. We have a game in hand after this. It has to be 3 points. 1 point today would help. Until last week I was not worried. Now I am.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s imperative you win your game in hand…you beat Newcastle & United which many didn’t give you a hope in hell of doing so you’re above par…keep the faith…I’m just gonna randomly mention Rafa as it may be the last time I can on here

6.) 24 Apr 2022 16:03:56
I don't know how everyone gets the blame but Kenwright. He brought in Moshiri, he has been a key decision maker in who we recruit and how much we paid them and he has been one of the team that recruited a list of failed managers. The sooner he goes the better and leave the running of the club to professionals.

{Ed0666's Note - Another random Rafa mention

7.) 24 Apr 2022 16:10:32
Put the knife away Ed ?.

8.) 24 Apr 2022 16:11:52
Kenwright wanted moyles before annocilotie came in wish we had of listened to him. You can’t blame kenwright he was right we were wrong.

9.) 24 Apr 2022 16:26:03
Think I prefer Ed0666 mentioning Rafa than our own fans moaning about Kenwright.

10.) 24 Apr 2022 16:27:58
C’mon lads, only Ed666 is allowed to mention Rafa regularly. It’s in our hands still. Our safety does not rely solely on today but we must put in a performance we can be proud of. Holgate’s only playing because Mina can’t, unsure how that’s Lampard’s fault.
Not expecting anything but will reserve judgement for now. C’mon lads!

11.) 24 Apr 2022 17:22:37
Agent Rafa you mean lol come on Everton.

12.) 24 Apr 2022 17:20:46
Ed0666, actually I never even thought about Rafa, plenty of failures before he came. As I have said many times I was at Wembley in 95' and we have won nothing since. Kenwright has been either part owner or Chairman since. In any other business he would have been long gone.

{Ed0666's Note - you know as well as I do football is not the same as any other business mate!

13.) 24 Apr 2022 17:45:08
Maybe Ed0666 but the clubs have to be well run and have a business model that the whole organization follows. I consider the likes of Liverpool, City and Chelsea to have much better business models than us which is why they are successful and we are not. Having the finances is obviously important but the money has to be wisely spent which has been our problem.

{Ed0666's Note - Little Joey who has a paper round has a better business model than you guys mate.

Ed25 also said the striker is a long term solution and not stop gap. I think that removes bats from the list.

I also think ed2 might have been trying to throw us off when it comes to broja. Or maybe now they have such interest in Gordon we feel we may have enough leverage to have a chance with him. But I'm probably just being overly hopeful there.

Who would be your preferred choice of your list Dan?

The fee will be unknown, at least to the majority. Ed2 said there is a fee die if we sell early. Also he is on 100k a week so he's cost us a few mill regardless of fee.

The thing is BT our good players always leave. Until we improve the entire team, the stadium, increase the fan base, increase revenue, we are always going to have to sell our best players. You mention Liverpool bring good players though and keep them. But they didn't do that until they were seriously challenging. In fact I'd say, apart from Gerrard, they have sold their best players, reinvested well and improved their team to a point that they do not have to sell them.

That is what Everton have to do. It was the model that was supposedly set with Brands. Now I know he has gone but we need to increase our funds to reinvest into the youth set up and younger players with sell on value and eventually it snowballs until we are a good team that can hold onto our players.

Now with Gordon I really like him think he is great. He's young and has so much time to turn into a great player, I think he is just a little off with his final ball and finishing. But he could also not develop at all. Now if Chelsea do in fact offer 50mil for him, it's a fantastic offer and I don't see how we can turn it down. I actually like him think he will improve and become a very good player.

But I will explain why I think he has to be sold if that value is met.

Say this season he scored 10 and gets 5 assists and does similar the season after, how much is he worth? 60mil maybe. But if he gets 5 goals and a couple of assists what is he worth? 20 maybe. He could also do worse and be worth even less. So it's a balance of do we sell now or later. Or be stuck with an under performing winger. 50 million could turn into 60 million but I doubt much more than that but it could also drop dramatically. It just makes sense for the business to sell now.

Then we should bring through the next young star and repeat. Reinvest and gradually become a better more rounded team.

Anything would be better than that front 3 GB. May have signed already and they are waiting for a proper press release.

Tom will play his part. He is a great squad player. Some like to give him stick, I thought he was better than doucoure. People must be getting bored of me saying this but we need to play 3 in midfield. Tom, holding, in a 3 I feel would be very good. ounana and iwobi next to him in CM.
