Looks like FM is at it again. Reports that following an unsuccessful / unimpressive interview with the board, FM has decided to offer Steve Hitchin the job of DOF. Oh dear where are we going to end up.


1.) 12 Feb 2022 06:54:43
How do you know that? ??‍♂️.

2.) 12 Feb 2022 08:14:09
That seems far fetched even for Everton. Mind you, who knows how people think or even if they are qualified to interview candidates. I was once reccomended for a job, I got it but some of the feedback (from one person in particular) was more to do with dress (I. T. and worked at home and/ or remotely) .

3.) 12 Feb 2022 10:21:07
If it was a poor interview and they are offering job can't say how they would make that knowledge. Who said poor interview. Sounds like trouble maker.

4.) 12 Feb 2022 15:08:50
Where did you see this?

5.) 12 Feb 2022 18:44:35
I read via various reports he interviewed well, I don't know if true obvs.

6.) 13 Feb 2022 11:22:51
How would anybody other than the people on the interview panel know that? I smell bull….

Now Mourinho been touted as admired by Morshiri.


1.) 18 Jan 2022 23:01:32
If all the rumours were to be believed, we’d be hiring 6 or 7 managers. I simply cannot believe we’d go for Mourinho, he’s Benitez minus the red connection.

2.) 18 Jan 2022 23:06:19
No thanks.

{Ed025's Note - no please..

3.) 18 Jan 2022 23:32:58
Maybe we're missing a trick here. Why don't we hire 6 or 7 managers at the same time.

{Ed025's Note - we couldn,t afford sean longstaff smit, never mind 7 managers mate..

4.) 18 Jan 2022 23:48:07
Give them two months each. Let Mourinho cover June&July.

5.) 19 Jan 2022 08:18:48
And this morning it's all Wazza Rooney making the headlines. If you print every managers name, eventually someone will be able to state that they'd made the prediction. Who knows who'll get the gig or when? Time to leave the click bait addicts to it and wait for a club announcement. Come on Duncan Leighton and the boys! Let's take Villa and have a real reaction on the pitch.

6.) 19 Jan 2022 11:36:15
Our turnover in managers has been so quick Smitt it almost feels like we've had 2 or 3 at the same time.

7.) 19 Jan 2022 19:58:40
Think I would prefer Rondon as Player Manager!

8.) 20 Jan 2022 05:08:51
Cookie Manager maybe player never in a month of Sundays.

9.) 20 Jan 2022 08:56:41
Yes but at another club.



15 Jan 2022 00:03:24
As bad as we are I can see 7 points out of 9 coming up starting with 3 against Norwich.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 09:55:21
For the first time n 30 years I find myself wondering whether I’d take a loss and Benitez being shown the door. I just can’t see a way forward from where we are with him at the helm. A bit like Big Sam, he seems to portray his feeling that we should all just bow down and feel lucky that he agreed to be here. I’m not someone that wants a change of manager every ) months - just wish we’d gone young, hungry, forward thinking and not old, well fed and boring.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 10:14:37
I am non-commital mainly because Benitez is capable of anything.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 12:53:04
JB, I don't think anyone else would do any good with this set of players. They have been poor for many a manager in the last 6 years.

Looks like the board are going to let rafa get rid of them either now or when contracts run out on the summer and then maybe bring someone else in to develop the long term project of a successful team.

4.) 15 Jan 2022 13:36:55
Marco Silva more or less had the same, he finished 8th, he had to go in the end though, Ancelotti had roughly the same as Silva minus idrissa Gueye, he finished badly last year, but was still in with a shout of 4th with about 6-7 games remaining, Benitez has roughly the same minus Rodriguez, plus he has forced Digne out of the club, and he was one of the main creators for DCL, Rafas excuses are wearing thin, if he sets up negatively against the weakest side in the league, and we have a poor result because of it, he should be relieved of duties after the match.

5.) 15 Jan 2022 15:27:00
Was on the side of keep rafa in but 25 mins in losing to Norwich, if don't win this then yeah I think he has to go as that signals to me the players either have no confidence or they aren't playing for him.

6.) 15 Jan 2022 15:34:28
Our fans never learn.

7.) 15 Jan 2022 16:11:38
Give it up Swan lad.

8.) 15 Jan 2022 16:13:35
He has to go now. We could get relegated otherwise.

9.) 15 Jan 2022 17:00:33
I’ve been an advocate for patience and judging Rafa when we have our full compliment of players but now I’m starting to get worried that relegation is a real possibility.

10.) 15 Jan 2022 17:02:44
Won't get relegated even if Rhino and Big D get the gig until end of season but that's enough, Rafa must go now. Terrible performance, terrible tactics, terrible result. RAFA OUT!

11.) 15 Jan 2022 18:39:44
His persistence in playing Rondon is beyond me and his stubbornness will be his downfall!



10 Jan 2020 22:17:06
My ex pat boss in Germany (Evertonian) went to the Baltic coast at the weekend and got talking with a bloke who is an agent who deals mainly in the German leagues. The agent said a Russian contact of his is in the process of offering Daler Kuzyayev to Everton from Zenith St Petersburg. He was supposedly in the Russian squad at the last world cup. Offering as opposed to doing a deal! Have any of the eds heard of this one?


{Ed025's Note - im afraid i have not nick, the only guy who would is ED002 i imagine, i will ask him if hes on tomorrow mate..

1.) 11 Jan 2020 09:30:45
I've read kuzyaev can sign a pre contract so hence the agent offering him about. As for how he plays, he's a centre mid and that's all I know not sure how good he is.



01 Nov 2017 23:51:53
I wonder how much of these rumours about Allardyce, Dyche, Moyes and co, are actually red herrings allowed to sneak out by the board to take the scent off the actual manager/ s they are making contact with. I just cannot believe that Morishi is prepared to outlay so much money on players and a new stadium, just to employ managers who at best will keep us mid table with the odd venture into europe every decade, or am I deluded in my thoughts.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 08:11:45
everyone but santa is been linked to the job, see hiddink is the latest suspect.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 08:39:55
We don't do red herrings. At this rate we will be getting linked to Iain Dowie.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 11:04:26
Go the whole high and get Alan Curbishley, Steve McLaren or Bob Bradley.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 16:35:14
has anyone mentioned harry yet.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 20:06:21
Everyone moaning about allardyce we desparately need him because we leak 3 goals a game and are going down ATM. He guarantees survival and then we can build from there by getting rid of the expensive rubbish Walsh and Koeman decided to bring in and add some real quality alongside the quality kids we have coming through.

6.) 02 Nov 2017 20:36:19
I agree, desperate times need desperate measures. The way we've lost the confidence in the team is alarming. Our best player tonight was a 17 year old and embarrassed schneiderlen. I think this job is too big for Dyche and wouldn't be confident in a foreign big name, I wouldn't be surprised if big Sam came tomorrow.

7.) 02 Nov 2017 21:52:44
As things stand even Ian Dowie wouldn’t take the job.

8.) 03 Nov 2017 08:13:45
a manager will not solve efc's problems. doesn't matter who they bring in he will soon realise that the squad needs replacing. we have 7 or 8 young and good players, beyond that there is nothing at the club. how officials at our club haven't seen the obvious is beyond me, without singling out any particular players it has been disappointing since unsy took over. when he did vlasic started to look like he was settling in at the club under what has to be said difficult circumstances first thing he does is drop him. and plays more or less the same players out of positions, as koeman did. they say a definition of madness is to keep doing the same thing and expect things to work out differently. i don't know what i expected from unsy, tbh. i thought he would see that rooney can't play up front and maybe drop morgan or gana and play rooney there or sig use vlasic and cal, niasse as forwards which they are but, so far rooney now sig up front shows he doesn't understand the problems we have. all season our whole forward line has dropped into midfield so we have been pressured more and more as games have gone on and managers tactics and formations are the problem. not since gordon lee have i seen an everton side this lacking in everyway possible. we have to be careful what we do next bring in the wrong guy and nothing will change several of our first team players cannot and must not be allowed to be on the same pitch at the same time. rooney mid no sig sig mid no rooney. gana no morgan, morgan no gana, we are presenting ourselves as a team to be attacked cause eventually all these players drop way to deep into the same positions and no longer look like they can kick a ball, falling over themselves. its a shame that unsy didn't see this right off the bat and start playing 4 1 3 2 with cal kev and vlasic up front, rooney or sig with benni and macca or gana or morgan as for the defence your guess is as good as mine. i think its clear unsy is not the man for the job which is a shame but he isn't coping with the big players at the club cause he is doing exactly what koeman did. there is a small change in personnel, but it's only a tweek on what koeman was doing when every fan can see we need a more radical solution. its not rocket science if someone is doing they're job poorly or having a difficult time they need dropping, its a football club. i am having a hard time believing we don't have any good defenders in our under 23 side that won prem 2 last year, surely a player who wins things and is hungry for a chance has to be better than what we put out. like i say shame unsy never got the point maybe we could be the first club of a reality tv show . the "ramsey esque" premier club nightmare where alex ferguson can go round clubs and watch games and they say "yeh you have problems. mainly your just sh*t. all joking aside things aren't as dire as they appear we need a manager who doesn't care what the under 23's are doing and wants to take them players from there and use them in the first team squad and one who watches games and can see what we all see and hopefully brings in the right players cause cal vlsaic and kev will be better off when we can defend and push out a bit.

{Ed025's Note - really good read that floats mate..

PSG rumoured to sack Pochettino despite winning the league. If we stay up would you be happy to take him on?


1.) 25 Apr 2022 01:00:55
Seriously if we stayed up do you think he would come to efc? ?.

2.) 25 Apr 2022 09:06:28
What's wrong with Lampard? Why would you want to sack yet another manager?

3.) 25 Apr 2022 09:15:34
No disrespect Nick but your post highlights all that is wrong with us as a fan base. Clearly deluded and believing we are better than we are. This is not football manager on the computer.

We are a team who is in a mess and fighting relegation. Have had more managers than I can remember in last several seasons. Have a complete mismatch of players due to all the different manages and are skating on thin ice with ffp.

Not sure how sacking off another manager helps, and then recruiting a manager who would clearly want a decent pay cheque to join us as well as new backroom staff and more players.

Also why would any so called top manager want to come to us?

We have to realise that whilst we have a cracking fan base, we are not a big club, we are competing at wrong end of the table and are not an attractive proposition.

If we stay up and it’s a big if we need to let frank start to build a squad.

4.) 25 Apr 2022 09:18:55
Lol as if he would sign for us our next manager will be warnock or Brian clough or someone similar in the championship it’s a disgrace.

5.) 25 Apr 2022 11:23:59
Dan I never mentioned getting rid of Lampard. I like him. I merely asked a question as Pochettino has made it quite clear he would like a return to the EPL. Other than a return to Spurs I wonder where he would fit in. Come the end of the season we don't know where we will be or what FM will do regarding Frank. I am certsinly not deluded and would ask you respectively keep those remarks off my posts.



21 Apr 2022 20:21:28
Southampton not doing us any favours at present ?.


1.) 21 Apr 2022 21:10:26
Playing like they have nothing to play for. Burnley have been good but Southampton have been pedestrian at best.

2.) 21 Apr 2022 21:01:26
Yep Southampton are doing that. I'm only posting this because of the Heysel mention on this page i hope you get relegated.

{Ed025's Note - I never seen that rudder and it should not have been posted..

3.) 22 Apr 2022 11:20:15
Rudder, I didn't see the post myself but don't tar us all with the same brush. Recently, there's been a few dodgy posts/ opinions that have slipped through to the pages. Some of which are out and out embarrassing. Most of you reds wanted us relegated anyway mate haha
C'mon Citeh!



20 Apr 2022 18:54:34
Well done to Marco Silva. Hope FM is watching and realises if you have patience it's surprising what can happen. Have to admit I liked the guy and thought he would have done well for us. It would be ironic if he passed us on his way up and our way down.




09 Apr 2022 19:54:42
The team will have gained great confidence today. With another home game only 4 days away hopefully it will be fresh in their minds. The crowd will have made them feel like kings. Another 3 points please.


1.) 09 Apr 2022 20:48:06
Agree there Nick mate.

2.) 09 Apr 2022 21:04:51
Who we playing in 4 days mate?

3.) 09 Apr 2022 22:49:31

4.) 09 Apr 2022 23:20:05
Got 11 days, nick before Leicester. Time to get them recovered and fit.

5.) 10 Apr 2022 01:49:36
I got a bit carried away there Reg ?.

Message for the management andplayers

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. "

Now get stuck in and be prepared to die for our club because we are doing that every week!

Point taken ed. Just out of interest, if we were to be sold again, who would fans prefer to buy us, a UK investor, or an overseas investor? I see the sucesses of clubs with overseas investment, but also the dangers that should their ecconomies take a hit, its their overseas investments that tend to get sacrificed first. I would prefer a UK investor if ever it happens.

This behaviour needs killing. This is not the Everton way. Voice an opinion by all means through social media, but to deface our ground is making me think these are not Everton fans at all. Can you imagine the new ground being defaced!

If we look at geoffs predictions for Burnley they will now get 38 points. I can't see where we will get the points we need. For the first time this season I have to admit that we stand a more than 50% of going down and each point less gets worse. I feel sick. I feel angry. I can't blame Frank or any others to be honest. I blame FM and the board. I have to let it all go now as constantly hoping and praying just leads to being unhappy. What will be will be.

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
