Looking like season restarting 17th June for the 2 games outstanding. Full fixture list proposed for weekend of 19th - 21st June.
Seen in bbc website.

My personal view is it's still highly unlikely as it's so contagious I actually feel sorry for footballers being treated like this it's pathetic.

2.) 29 May 2020 14:30:45
why? safest workplaces in the country right now the premier league clubs? the safety measures have been met and its been declared safe for the continuation? many businesses around the uk are now reopening with less safety measures and not labelled critical, why can't they? if it wasn;t safe i'd completely agree but its more than safe.

3.) 29 May 2020 14:57:45
My cousin works in fazackerley hospital she messaged me that they are on stand by for the second wave shops are reopening because the government need us working class to pay taxes as they have no money left and as for safest job in the world behave buddy grabbing breathing tackling all over each other is not the safest job in the world footballers are still human beings they will still go out for walks they will still head the shops they will still come into contact with people you can test them 200 times a day it doesn't mean they won't catch it.

4.) 30 May 2020 07:53:33
Totally agree brank I can see a second wave coming the way it's going, football along with other sports should not be starting but we all have a different view on the situation at the moment.

5.) 30 May 2020 22:11:48
Surely if footballers are playing, and having to come into physical contact with other players they will be self isolating away from the pitch? They will also be regularly tested, very regularly. I don't feel sorry for them, they are employed, it's their job. Many 'non essential ' jobs are opening up again, without the structure that top flight professional footballers will have. Think of them. I've been working in my NHS role throughout seeing the well dying and dead, with a new born baby as well. If it's safe then they can play, yes 'play' football. If it's not then dont. Millions are more vulnerable than footballers.

6.) 30 May 2020 22:37:12
Latest results from premier league players testing. Zero from 1130 tests, that is after 4rounds of tests.

7.) 03 Jun 2020 07:02:58
It’s alright Michael Keane has been self isolating since the start of the season so he is ahead of the curve ;)

Little bit underwhelmed by the new kit - there were some cracking concept designs out there but new kit not as good as some of them in my opinion.

What’s everyone else’s thoughts on the new kit?


1.) 03 Jul 2020 10:35:23
I love it, there was only 1 concept I preferred but concepts are always nicer as they don’t have to take into account mass production. It’s all subjective though! .

2.) 03 Jul 2020 17:13:26
Love the new kit.

{Ed002's Note - Blue as I suggested?}

3.) 04 Jul 2020 11:59:47
Hummel do fantastic gear is smart, just bra cause they are not the biggest brand does not mean there stuff is not as good as Nike stuff.
Costa and Starbucks are biggest coffee brands but there coffee is rubbish.



24 Jun 2020 20:03:16
Credit where credits due, I was critical of a few of the players after the derby. However Iwobi and Keane much improved from the Liverpool game.
Iwobi was much better and second half stepped up a level when he had some freedom.
Keane looked composed and his goal was well deserved. Him and Holgate looked in tune.

Another impressive defensive performance - even though not tested a great deal.

Definitely need a creative midfielder in transfer window.

Davies - I still don't get him and what he offers in my opinion offered nothing again I know others on here love him and will probably disagree but think he should be dropped for next game.


1.) 24 Jun 2020 20:53:22
clean sheet and the 3 points yeah gingerdan agree mate but i fought iwobi was awfull in my opinion doesn't offer anything at all instead of trying to take any full back on he passes the ball back all the time and as for tom davies am sorry he's not good enough i seen comments from other blues good last few months about him not being good enough and now i actually agree done the same against liverpool aswell makes the wrong passes always looses possesion if we had a stronger team depth he would be dropped in my opinion mate but look its 3 points and a clean sheet.

2.) 25 Jun 2020 09:05:18
Davies is not good enough, if he wasn't a local lad he woukd not have had so many chances.
Sigurdson has played well past two gahes, when coming on, but it's maintaining that performance if he gets a start.
Iwobi second half for me was brilliant.
And I don't see mina walking back into the team at the minute. Defensively we have looked really solid.



02 Jun 2020 20:26:50
Yerry Mina now out injured!
Muscle tear and will be out for a few weeks.
Not what we need ahead of the derby.

I'm sure we're cursed when it comes to injuries.


1.) 03 Jun 2020 11:02:11
Not ideal, but I'd like to see Keane and holgate hold down the partnership for rest of season to decide if we need a starter replacement or depth. Great opportunity for Keane here. Hope he takes it.

2.) 03 Jun 2020 14:16:11
just think keane can have one good game and then have 6 bad games but think you're right hopefully he can form a partnership with holgate cause we havnt got any one else to relay on in central defence.

3.) 04 Jun 2020 08:39:36
Keane is shocking he needs shipping but we have no defenders so we will have to put up with him 🙈🙈
2 decent centre backs is a must.

4.) 05 Jun 2020 13:00:34
Maybe we need to look at Branthwaite for some games.



24 May 2020 14:53:10
Anyone been following Kenny at Schalke since the season restarted?
7 goals conceded in 2 games doesn't make good reading.
I know there's more than him in the defence and the team as a whole, but anyone got any idea how he's been performing?
Was hoping he may be ready to slide right into the team for us next season.


1.) 24 May 2020 16:16:14
I think Shalke play with a back three from what I've seen. Kenny has been pushed further up the field so it might be a tad unfair to point the finger (I know your not slating Kenny by the way) . I think it's more to do with Wagner's formation set up. Maybe a back four would suit both Shalke and Kenny. Would still like him back at EFC though.

2.) 24 May 2020 18:18:15
As much as it pains me to say, I think the club will bring JJK back purely for fiscal reasons, I have watched him numerous times in his campaign with Schalke, and of course witnessed him start for us a few times in the 2017/ 18 season, he was novice then I accept, but I don't think he what it takes to be starting a right back in a top six team, I know we are currently not a top six side, far from it, but honestly I don't see JJK being a long term right back for Everton, I would happily be proved wrong, but honestly don't see him reaching another level, if he wasnt an evertonian I don't think many fans would even be that concerned with what happened with him. better defensively that Sidibe though!

3.) 25 May 2020 12:54:58
I'm sure that some teams have prepared better after the time off than others and some results will be distorted by this break. Can't see how 2 months off and only a no contact 1 to 2 weeks training is any good for players.
But until the break, he was doing very well. It's only 2 games, likely not the best scenario to make any judgment. I'm sure no fans plays a huge part in motivation to certain types of players. Some need that extra adrenaline rush of support and or abuse from opposition fans.

4.) 25 May 2020 19:51:00
It watched it myself since the restart but from speaking to my German colleague the other day he said Schalke came up against a very determined Dortmund side chasing down Bayern and don’t really have much to play for
From what he said you are right ToffeeApple some teams appear better prepared and others look like they are in early Pre-season making mistakes
Kenny was doing well prior to the break, don’t think he is the answer at right back longterm where he is but he has improved. Better option for me than Sidibe who supposedly wants out and doesn’t offer anything special plus would cost us, money better spent elsewhere.

5.) 26 May 2020 09:13:02
Definitely better than Sidibe ST!
Kenny needs a big leap to make an elite level player and he's young, it's possible but we must hope all our players improve. So we can cash em in and start performing off the pitch and bring in some much needed profit year on year. But if the hype he managed pre C.V., he'd surely be the better option over Sidibe and dare I say a faltering Coleman? Think a tenacious young blood is just the thing to squeeze another season or 2 out of our captain. Medium term, none of em are good enough.

6.) 26 May 2020 12:36:35
That’s my thinking, sometimes a tenacious youngster coming through gives another player that push, or helps spread the workload
Plus he has the passion that sometimes you just can’t buy.

7.) 26 May 2020 14:32:33
Cheers for the feedback on him.

Doesn’t sound like he’s quite ready to walk into our starting line up.

Does that mean we need to sign sidibe?

Personally don’t think Coleman is a starter at right back going forward - he’s been a great servant to the club and probably one of the best bargains in the premier league but his age and nasty injury appears to have done him - he no longer looks composed on the ball, his darting runs and cracking deliveries seem to have dried up also.

With finances probably tight would Coleman he be an option in the middle of the park just in front of the back line - can read the game well and has an eye for a pass?

8.) 27 May 2020 13:31:42
I always thought Baines might move into that role in midfield a bit like Philip Lahm did
I don’t want to see Sidibe signed permanently as he doesn’t bring enough and from what Ed has repeatedly said he wants out of the club, fed up of these players who aren’t interested don’t think they add enough and have no desire or not enough.



05 Jan 2020 20:22:22
Rumours Ancelotti giving serious thought to what he's got himself in to and looking at whether his contract has the same 14 day cooling off period most other contracts of service have, he's waiting for the citizens advice bureau to open first thing in the morning 😂.


{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣

1.) 05 Jan 2020 20:50:59
Can someone steal Ancelotti's passport please.
If I was him and watched that team of "men" who cannot pass or keep the ball, I'd be on the first plane back to Italy.
Some of the football they played was amateurish. I've seen better on a Sunday morning in the park.

Klopp gave us a big chance to beat them and they just handed back.

At least he got to see who is not worth keeping. But on that showing most the team could come into that category.

Sorry that's the most positive I can be after that.

Well said bignev.
No way should anyone be slating DCL - he is getting no service.
The midfield lacks creativity and he’s feeding off scraps. Get a creative midfielder or even a midfielder who isn’t afraid to go forward with the ball and supply the strikers and it’ll be a different outcome.
Like the look of Gordon and hopefully he’ll be able to provide that killer pass our midfield is lacking.

Gordon was the only shining light in a terrible performance.

Spurs were rubbish and there for the taking.

Very disappointing after our last 3 results - probably the slim chance of Europe now gone.

Some rebuilding to do in the next month or so.

I don’t get Sigurdsson - he offers nothing - I’m assuming the continual selection of him is to get him in the shop window so to speak but if anyone watched him they’ll be asking us to pay them to take him off our hands.
Iwobi also poor, seems to shy away.
Gomes also had a stinker - always appeared to want to play it backwards.

Having watched the last 2 games - he does seem a bit more sensible and level headed without a crowd, I think he plays up to the crowd and gets carried away.

However would happily replace him as he is rash at times and not sure what his obsession with trying to punch clear rather than catch the ball.

Wow bill - we haven’t even kicked a ball yet in season part 2 and you’re already complaining we’re falling by the way. Thought this break may have changed some perceptions - good to see people still moaning.

How can you judge a player on a rare occasion?

I’d rather they be given a decent chance and then judge

Surely can’t be worse than anyone currently in our midfield?

I’d argue that both Digne and Holgate would get into a top 6 club not just Richarlison.

Not sure he needs to ship 10 out.

Of tonight’s team I would happily see Sigurdsson, Iwobi and sidibe be moved on.
None of them seem to offer anything.

Gomes and Davies had poor games but wouldn’t move them on.

Definitely need a midfield general, creative midfielder and a right back brought in though.

I’d replace him if a decent offer came in.

Thought he’d started to improve without the crowd but then last night he nearly cost us a goal by not being able to stop the ball with his hands on the floor. He also got a needless yellow card for time wasting.

His distribution when booting it long is completely pointless - always ends up with the opposition, very rarely creates an attack for us.

He makes a few decent saves I’ll give him that - but I don’t think he’s got the right mindset. Doesn’t appear to command his box and always looks to blame the defence if something his fault. I always worry he’s got a mistake in him.

Joe hart though? Are you serious? He’s terrible - would rather keep Pickford if Joe Hart was the alternative.

I think we should be alright at centre back with Holgate, mina, Keane and braithwaite.

Need to sort out right back - unsure if sidibe is the answer as apparently he himself is not convinced of staying.

Upfront I think we’re quite good with Richarlison, DCL and hopefully kean.

It’s the middle of the park I think we need to sort first - we’re crying out for some creativity - can’t remember the last time we had a midfielder with spark and who was creative and drives forward with the ball. Kanchelskis possibly the last midfielder that got us on the edge of the seat when he had the ball at his feet. Will be interesting to see how Gordon develops he may be what we need.

If we can get someone who can bring us that spark and creativity and create chances for our front 3 I think we’ve got the makings of a decent team next season.
