Great news coming out today that Usmanov is going to be investing a £200 million deal over naming right for our new stadium, that was done nice and quickly.


1.) 17 Mar 2020 10:21:21
so, would we be able to use this investment to free up funds for a summer transfer budget, or is it a different thing?

2.) 17 Mar 2020 11:55:15
It's 200mil for 10 years naming rights so I assume it's 20mil a year. Not a huge amount in football terms.

{Ed002's Note - It is a very large amount just for naming rights.}

3.) 18 Mar 2020 06:22:07
Why would he pay so much just for naming rights ed?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know. The club is already aware that the fee paid for the option of being the preferred bidder for naming rights has attracted attention and will likely not be allowed against the significant FFP problem the club has.}

4.) 18 Mar 2020 20:35:12
So it's not really good news then all seems a bit cloak and dagger to me ed.

{Ed002's Note - The money is spread over ten years.}

5.) 21 Mar 2020 21:31:39
Not cloak and daggers. Besides which this is now a whole new World. Society, Business etc! is now changed forever. It is no stretch at all to state that given this very serious change in circumstances Everton etc! will have their FFP held in abeyance. Besides our so-called troubles are but a grain of sand.



16 Feb 2020 11:15:12
I see this morning that Digne is the latest player to be linked away with Chealsea and Man U said to interested, price being quoted as £36 million, the report says Digne could be tempted by a move if we don't qualify for Europe, I think we have a very good chance of qualifying it will be interesting to see which Teams qualify.


1.) 16 Feb 2020 12:50:29
This is just speculation on some lazy journalists part GB. We will get more of the same the better the team does and obviously the "better" teams will be after our players. If they do go I trust Brands to get over the odds for them.

2.) 16 Feb 2020 13:50:27
I agree mate but he does have a point, all top footballers want to play in Europe.

3.) 16 Feb 2020 15:11:49
We will need to get into Europe or it will be more than Digne being sold if a good offer comes in. We seriously need to improve revenue if we want to keep the players we have and make further improvements to the squad.

4.) 16 Feb 2020 15:34:42
Definitely Toffee Ace mate.

5.) 16 Feb 2020 16:48:58
Don't get the obsession with playing in Europe you could be knocked out in the first round. all this I want champions League football is becoming a bit tedious.

6.) 16 Feb 2020 17:32:42
I don’t get the fascination either as before brexit we played in Europe every game 😂.

7.) 16 Feb 2020 19:00:04
It's where the best players want to play we would have a better chance of keeping the ones we want and the ones we would like, simples.

8.) 16 Feb 2020 19:53:43
That was not me posting on that last post . one of the boys have been winding me up sorry blues.

9.) 16 Feb 2020 21:46:33
Surely the penny will drop on the usual players linked away.

It happens every season when we are due to play the said clubs, Man Utd and Chelsea due up soon.

Seems the press are not happy with Everton challenging and once again we have them spouting rubbish, to unsettle the team.

10.) 17 Feb 2020 11:59:09
I have no issue with players getting sold; even those who are considered to be among the top performers. The proviso is that we get maximum value for them and we have a replacement lined up which is not going to impact the performances.

Football is a business and clubs need to get in to the habit of recycling players and replacing them. There are clubs in Europe where this is the norm, yet they are able to maintain a performance level. I thought one of Brands functions would be this type of buying and selling players to make a profit from player trading.



03 Feb 2020 20:48:22
More reports of Usmanov in Megafon advertising at Goodison, could this be another sign he will be stepping up his investments with us, happy days.


1.) 04 Feb 2020 08:13:13
Lots of Signs. All around Goodison. Do you think he is paying over the odds?

2.) 04 Feb 2020 12:33:49
The Megafon advertising is part of an existing deal and does not involve any more sponsorship funding being put into the club.

3.) 05 Feb 2020 12:27:01
All seems a bit strange to me. Usmanov has a few links to EFC now with sponsorships and naming rights. He’s a businessman and he’s not going to give money to EFC or his friend as owner unless he is getting something in return other than getting his brand advertised.

At the same time there is no point in him joining Moshiri in ownership of the club as this wouldn’t make a difference to FFP as are overheads are more than our income.
I understand the club is trying to offload surplus players and reduce the wages. But really if we could wave a magic wand and move on Stekelenburg, one of our RB (Kenny, Coleman or Sidibe) , Martina and Niasse.

Maybe others ie Schneiderlin, Sigurdson and Walcott too. Would this get us back within the threshold of FFP? Not forgetting even if all these could move on. Our club has ambition to bring in new quality players who will cost a premium which will then put us back to square 1. So what is the answer apart from selling our best players like we have done in the past. Doesn’t seem fair financially to us supporters.

4.) 06 Feb 2020 21:16:22
Ed02, I know this may be a massive over simplification but do you have an idea of a ball park figure of the amount of wages that need to be cut to get us back in line with FFP?

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that Chris. In simple terms, Everton has to maintain losses over a rolling three year period for the Premier League to less than £105M - excluded are youth development and infrastructure costs. Over the past three years the gross loss/profit and loss are +£10M, -£35M and for last season -£112M. For this season Everton must make a significant profit - they won't because 85% of income is spent on wages, then they have spent significantly on players, running the club and are building debt with the club mortgaged against a third party. They are sort of screwed big time and the business simply cannot be sustained as it is.}

5.) 07 Feb 2020 10:17:53
Very worrying to read.

6.) 08 Feb 2020 16:15:54
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}

7.) 09 Feb 2020 12:58:21
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.

8.) 09 Feb 2020 15:19:26
Wow just Wow!



29 Jan 2020 10:52:55
Ronaldo Viera being linked this morning for £14 million.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 14:03:58
Well if he plays half as well as his namesakes then get him.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 14:15:31
EDS is there any truth in it? i'm sure this kid use to play for leeds and was highly rated.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of an approach by Everton for Ronaldo Viera but certainly Milan and West Ham have spoken with Sampdoria who have alreadey resisted a couple of bids - and Burnley and Montpellier have spoken with Trimboli about his availability.}

3.) 29 Jan 2020 16:38:25
Thanks for the info Ed002.



28 Jan 2020 19:39:50
Looks like no Everton Soares for us according to SSN third party ownership issues apparently.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 22:48:44
I for one hope whatever happens close of deadline day is another curve ball. If it is i'll no longer bother with any rumours or whatever sites. Secretly really want whatever business to make a total mockery of the papers etc. Not convinced we are remotely interested in any of the targets doing the rounds. Waste of time all round. What will be will be.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 12:00:45
There won't be any notable incomings. We are in a bad financial situation its been spoken about a lot on here. I haven't even bothered reading the rumours. No one will leave until their contract is up so we won't be getting anyone.

Good win tonight, some good performances from Gordon and Keane.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 20:13:26
we have started slowly and hopefully are picking up a head of steam.
Beat the spuds and we are in with a chance of qualifying for Europe and breaking a whole load more FFP rules. Onwards and upwards.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 20:16:24
Well a win is a win and three points but we were second best apart from the first 15 minutes or so. We again can't keep possession and Pickford is a walking disaster waiting to happen. Every time he boots it long it was picked up by a Leicester player.
We defend well but can someone teach them to keep the ball when we have it.

3.) 01 Jul 2020 20:24:04
We would have crumbled in the second half before Carlo. I though some of the players looked tired towards the end. Notably gomes. I thought he gave a lot of fouls away. But we had some good individual performances, good subs, good game management.

Just had a check of the fixture list and a lot of the team's around us are playing each other. We beat spurs and we are really in the mix for Europe.

4.) 01 Jul 2020 20:35:49
Carlo is like a breathe of fresh air after those other pretenders in charge.

5.) 01 Jul 2020 20:42:13
I agree with the Gomes comment Chris. He ran out of puff by 75 mins. Still, defending was very good and whilst I also agree with the shredded nerves from watching Pickford By some posters, He also makes some really good saves 1 on 1. Happy with the performance and ultimately the result. Let’s just keep picking up points under the radar and see what happens at the end of the season. 👍.

6.) 01 Jul 2020 21:33:40
Agree Chris. We are slowly getting better.

7.) 01 Jul 2020 21:36:23
Too be honest we were well organised and worked hard, were always going to surrender possession especially after Richarlison went off it only left DCL up top on his own, we are 2 or 3 players from being a top side.



01 Mar 2020 16:54:18
Gomes was our standout player this afternoon so glad to have him back.


1.) 01 Mar 2020 18:59:27
Great having Gomes back, makes a real difference. But DCL put in a proper centre forward display, him and Richie could be brilliant in time.



24 Feb 2020 09:20:28
Well here we go again a game yesterday we should have won, so many chances in front of goal we easily could have had scored 5-6 goals with more clinical finishing, our defence and midfield were atrocious, Siggy was as guilty as any with poor passes over and over again, also Morgan not good enough and it carries on with Delph, at the back Sidibi was also very poor, all this poor football will not go amiss with Carlo he will see what an average at best Team and that's being kind we have, hopefully he can sort this mess out in the summer.


1.) 24 Feb 2020 09:51:58
Obviously using the time now to observe and evaluate but push on where we can. With this man's experience and achievements, I for one am confident it will all come good. It beggars belief how incompetent (possibly a bit strong but you get the drift) the Board have been.

2.) 24 Feb 2020 10:29:14
Question time, Sidibe. yes or no. He has great games but then yesterday was in Aubameyangs pocket, at 12m he’s cheap in this day and age but with FFP breathing down our necks should we spend 12m when we could bring Kenny back for free who I have heard has been playing very well this year.

3.) 24 Feb 2020 11:22:43
At the end of the day you can't expect to win a game if you give away 3 goals. It could have been 6-5 or 7-6 to either side as both defenses has an element of Keystone Cops about them, probably not acceptable to either manager but Arteta came away with the points because their strikers were more clinical with the chances given to them by our midfield/ defence.

To me there was a case that 3 of our midfielders shouldn't have been playing, especially not all together. Siggy, Schids and Delph have lost the pace and with it, the confidence to compete at the top level in the Premiership. I could understand picking Iwobi against his old side but he did nothing to make Arsenal fans rue the day he was sold. We need to find some speed, some bite in midfield and it's a risk but it's time to blood one of the U23's and get a reaction out of them

To answer the question on Sidibe. He's a defender but he can't defend - he gets dragged out of position too much. We can do better

It wasn't a disaster but it showed the work that Carlo still needs to do.

4.) 24 Feb 2020 11:25:58
Sidibe gives so much offensively but he's clearly a bang average defender. And will have days where his best defensive displays are below average. I think maybe if the guy has a decent RW in front of him to form a partnership with, we could see an improvement. Also to give the guy credit, he is in his 1st season in the Prem and often players need a season to adjust. 12 m? I think I'd approve us buying him.

Sig is clearly trying really hard but it's just not his game to be a hardworking CM. He enjoys the freedom of being a 10 and that's just not possible anymore in our setup. He's holding us back financially and on the pitch. Must be moved in in Summer.

Baines deserves another 12 months but in truth, he's very slow now and maybe he needs to get involved in the coaching setup, be a shame to lose such a talented servant but we really need to address LB as losing Digne was a shame for us yesterday. Also when Digne has a poor spell, he doesn't really have a threat to his position and maybe sometimes he coasts through games?

And the elephant in the room since Lukaku. Regardless of how well DCL has done, we need a serious top striker with a track record. Yesterday we should have won. That's 2nd half (other than first 5 mins) we absolutely dominated Arsenal. Leno played very well. It was fine fine margins but a striker should have walked off with the match ball yesterday.

Gomes was unbelievable and Bernard is tidy if sometimes not quite at it.
So its the classic shopping list. A CB a RW and a CF. So much of an improvement and I'm very positive about the coming seasons. We deserved to win yesterday. No doubt the better team.

5.) 24 Feb 2020 11:27:40
Agree with both your replies, i think we now have one of if not the best Managers in the Premier League who I am sure can finally sort our Team out, he will see in all the games he has managed for us what a mediocre side we are at times with all of the mistakes that is going on week in and week out, and Mr Moshiri will have offered him plenty funds to him to improve it when he was given the job.

6.) 24 Feb 2020 11:42:00
Even my 2 good friends who are gooners both texted stating we should have won. A first probably since the 80s.

7.) 24 Feb 2020 12:51:23
Yes we should have won but we didn't. The problem is the midfield, no threat going forward and no help in defense for 75% of the game. I would bring Kenny back and if we sign Sidibe play him in midfield. The major problem for the summer is that we will not have much money to spend on new players.

8.) 24 Feb 2020 20:25:44
Midfield needs addressing and needs more pace both in running and recycling the ball, it’s far to pedestrian at times. Gueye is still a huge miss in the middle of the pitch, or all over the pitch as he did cover every blade of grass!
If the rumours of Allan from Napoli pan out he could be that immediate impact but price needs to be right. Similarly Morgan Samson is rumoured again. I think Brands will already be working on Ancelotti’s midfield upgrades. If and when Gbamin is fit we can see what he offers where.
Move on Schneiderlin Siggurdson Delph Besic Bolassie Sandro Tosun and Michael Keane to raise some funds.
Allegedly interest in Lozano again, he’s hardly played at Napoli since Carlo left. If not then I suspect there will be a couple or other interesting options
Up top I just don’t know if there are any options around for us, not within our financial restraints, I could see Ancelotti running with what he has. Would love a big name striker just think we don’t have the funds.



22 Feb 2020 14:37:03
5th place is so tight now with so many teams there or thereabouts, no reason we can't be up there, with so many points left available, what an achievement for Carlo and the Team.


1.) 23 Feb 2020 08:59:02
We are currently 10th but really chuffed to have Ancelloti (at last a proven achiever) at our Club. However after constant errors of judgement in coaching/ managerial recruitment, the most inexplicable and destructive was Silva. That single appointment means we really have to temper our expectations for a couple of seasons at least and let Carlo do his job.

2.) 23 Feb 2020 13:12:28
constant errors of judgement in coaching/ managerial recruitment, yes and the link to all our bad errors is KenWrong,



20 Feb 2020 17:47:17
Lang O'Rourke has been named as our new stadium contractor, looks like it's gathering pace, exciting times ahead.

I hope that what is written in the papers about Keane having a house party with hundreds there with lap dancers etc is not true, if it is the Club should get rid of him that sort of behaviour is simply not on, he has not only disgraced himself but also his Club and his Country, time to get rid.
