Ed - why would Everton let 3 strikers leave on loan and leave us with only one who has just come back from injury and is going through a little drought

I could understand if we were 10th-14th say but for years we have heard board say they have aspirations of Europe - well surely this is the chance we were waiting for

There surely must be something we are not hearing lined up - it's not like we are free scoring from midfield either.


{Ed025's Note - i would hope we have somone lined up sobs, otherwise its a very strange state of affairs mate..

1.) 31 Jan 2021 19:20:45
Surely we have someone lined up?! It's been very clear that carlo doesn't want to play youngsters/ they're nowhere near good enough so essentially we have no attack minded subs if tosun and Bernard go. Yesterday was a good example of that. Utterly devoid of ideas going forward and the only attacking player on the bench, Gordon, remained on the bench for the entire match. Looking as though we'll only attract players through ancelottis name this summer because European qualification seems pretty unlikely. Does make you wonder about the ffp situation though because surely we won't be able to spend loads again and it's not like any of our unwanted players are particularly saleable.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 20:31:09
Last day syndrome yet again while I understand the need to reduce overheads can it really be considered at the expense of any ambitions the manager has?

3.) 31 Jan 2021 20:45:54
Ed025 leaving it all to late I think! It’s like the clear out has clouded issues with squad players performance and form.

{Ed025's Note - it is late wakka and thats certainly a worry, but it looks like the main strategy was to get as many fringe players off the books as they could, i can see the point but its a concern when we see 2 keepers on the bench and the lack of attacking strength we have mate..



22 Jan 2021 14:21:38
Vardy out for EFC game.


1.) 22 Jan 2021 20:33:26
And with DeBruyne out for 4-6 weeks it would be good to reschedule that in during that time.

2.) 22 Jan 2021 22:07:31
IF we are going to go anywhere in this league, we need to stop worrying about opposition players and concentrate more on strengthening our team. TOP 6 for me is a minimum.

3.) 22 Jan 2021 22:43:30
You need an element of luck to win a trophy and good fortune to win a league.
Maybe the above is luck turning in our favour. don't dismiss it.

4.) 23 Jan 2021 14:17:10
I’d much rather play city without debruyne than with him as I’m sure they’d rather face us without James etc you’ve got to take advantages when they present themselves that’s all I was saying stay well stay safe blues UTFT.

5.) 24 Jan 2021 14:04:55
We do have injuries too you know.

6.) 27 Jan 2021 13:18:55
Not sure if Teams would rather face us without James. Him playing on the right gives Teams a free run down their left. Play him through the middle with Iwobi as RWB and that is a more solid option.



26 Jan 2019 23:11:20
Summer hols can't come quick enough. This is turning into a disaster. Season is over for me. Would you give silva anymore millions if it was your money?
Trouble is, we are still paying Sam and Ronald and would be paying 4 managers if we sack Silva.

it's embarrassing and no real solution - giving people time is fine if showing signs of improvement but we look awful / no balance at all. I have no idea how to solve this - surely can't go back to drawing board again.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 08:33:58
Random question not everton related but seen as your names Newcastle if the eds allow I'll ask. Never been out in Newcastle before and going there with the missus in 2 weeks where would u recommend for food.

{Ed025's Note - not sure about the food johny but i have been there a few times and the big market or quay side are the best drinking haunts mate..

2.) 27 Jan 2019 13:02:41
Quayside mate - don’t take your misses anywhere else. Loads of bars and restaurants so just have a walk about and you will find loads. Aim for just below Tyne Bridge - that’s the best area.
Whatever you do - don’t end up in Sunderland;)



12 Jul 2017 23:32:37
The cherry (s) on top of the cream on top of the cake:

Luke Shaw (difficult one as he needs game time and this would push Baines out - but 6 million - great price)

Dzeko / Benteke / Girioud - personally I'd rather Dembele - but its a 45 million gamble but we have Rooney / ramirez. Dzeko and Giroud would only be around for 2 seasons.

Sigurtson - love it if we got him in exchange for Barkley. I think given its World Cup year Barkley has to be playing / I think we will get sigurtson and Swansea need to replace him. Good deal all round (he won't play at spurs and will always be under Ali's shadow.

I'd be happy with left back, sigurtson and benteke/ dembele.

Be dreaming if we got gray on top of that.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 07:27:52
wont get Luke Shaw for 6 million in todays market, maybe 15, Giroud all day long, 98 goals in five seasons and not a regular starter, doesn't rely on pace so age is irrelevant as you would get 4 years not 2, Ross wouldn't go to swansea if that's what you were on about mate, i'm not arsed if we pay 50 million for Sig as would improve us hugely.



05 Jul 2017 22:25:39
Lakaku reported to be in talks with Man Utd since 9pm today.

I would rather he went to Chelsea as I think Man U are one of the teams we could overtake -.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 22:50:21
him and pogba are very good friends tho, on hols together, maybe he wants to prove mourinho wrong as well

personally i don't give a toss where he goes, we are emerging as a very strong team / squad.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 23:02:51
Bang on Dixie.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 23:15:33
90th minute next season lukaku misses a sitter we hit them on the break sandro puts rooney 1 on 1 an the mighty blues take all 3 points 😂😅😂.

4.) 06 Jul 2017 06:17:23
there is a guy who walks his dog in the local park where i walk mine (sefton park) he works for efc altho i don't recognise him or his initials he told me in feb that lukaku was going to move to manu only probs is rom himself he wants chelsea so now all the talk is rom is going to manu and they are going to add wayne to the deal as long as we are prepared to pay his 250 aweek wages if you say it out loud it doesn't make sense first off we would not pay that much for rooney secondly why would we swap or deal only to get the short end of the stick i have no doubt that manu want rom they might even get him but the rest is just crap i don't see him getting more than 100-120 a week at efc and that's a stretch is kind of odd that it is the sun that broke this crap i mean story yesterday can't imagine where they are getting there headline grabbing storys from this is rumour mongering at its worst their is no way any newspapers actually no what's going on during any negotiations and if rooney is going to be an efc player its because its what wayne wants not because of rom or how much efc will pay him.

5.) 06 Jul 2017 07:24:53
Lukaku wants Champions League football. Well as I see it, seven teams will be vying for the four spots next season and none of them are a shoe in. I include Everton in the seven. If he doesn't want to be part of the revelotion then more fool him. If he wants guaranteed Champions League football, sign for Celtic. Let's get as much as we can for him and Barkley and enjoy what's coming. COYB. IKWT.

{Ed002's Note - He wants to play at the highest level and be challenging for league titles and playing in the Champions League regularly.Everton cannot offer that.}

6.) 06 Jul 2017 08:49:49
I'm not going to lie, I'll be gutted when he goes - regardless of where it is! You can't knock a player for having ambition and being driven toward success. Unfortunately, I feel that we just aren't where we need to be just yet to keep a player like him. I've no doubt that in a couple of seasons that we will, just not right at this moment - c'est la vie!

Good luck to the lad anyway, and we will move onwards and upwards 😊.

{Ed025's Note - i dont have a problem with him leaving either pierre, i wish he would keep his mouth shut at times but i have no axe to grind with him...good luck rom but i think you may have left a bit too soon as you could have been a part of something big..

7.) 06 Jul 2017 09:07:55
Celtic will guarantee him titles Ed and also Champions League, if he is as good as he thinks he is then he could do it even at a club that is not the elitist when it comes to challenging for the Champions League title.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know how celtic come in to it gray?.. :)

8.) 06 Jul 2017 09:17:50
I get what you're saying Ed regarding him keeping his mouth shut mate, some of the stuff he says is just in jest though to be fair.

{Ed025's Note - it always seems that when he,s away with the belgian squad he has a little pop at the club pierre, no biggie though just a tad disrespectful..

9.) 06 Jul 2017 08:54:23
ED02 is their any reason we can't offer champions league in the near future as top 4 is the aim next season as for him going to UTD I still think he will end up at Chelsea Mourinho didn't rate him and sold him while at Chelsea so with him wanting Morata why would he also want Lukaku.

{Ed002's Note - Right now it would be very difficult for Everton to break in to the top four and stay their on a consistant basis - even more so to challenge for the league. I have no idea why you think Mourinho didn't rate Lukaku at Chelsea - that is simply not true.}

10.) 06 Jul 2017 10:04:06
I think our aim is to consistently challenge top 4 although I know winning the league is out of our grasp just now regarding Lukaku and Mourinho my thinking was he sent him out on loan twice then he must of agreed to the sale for him to leave. in all honesty the sooner he leaves the better great goalscorer but his all round play isn't fantastic and he won't get away with as much as he did with us.

11.) 06 Jul 2017 11:25:03
no you can't knock a player for wanting cl football but how many of us would give up everything we have for a little bit more or the promise thereof utd have locked themselves into playing rom now they have they're man and will have to play around him. not good imho utd will again have to change the way they play to accommodate rom smacks of inconsistency in the coming season. how long before the nonsense that has ruled his time at goodison starts at old trafford. give him a year like he did with us and see if he still wants chelsea move glad this chapter of our history is closed roll on the next.

Idris Guaye has let himself down.


1.) 18 May 2022 16:04:41
This is a really tricky one though isn’t it?

Why is one persons believe seen as more important than another persons?

If his believe/ religion does not believe in different aspects of lgbtq is it therefore wrong of him to stand up for his believes and not wear the shirt?

Have we not got to the point where a lot of what is done is more of an actual tick box exercise than really dealing with any issues? The taking the knee all well and good but has it actually done anything? I’d say no, particularly when you read about the racist abuse that still occurs at games. The abuse Toney and Henrys families allegedly suffered at the game the other day clearly highlights it’s not changed much.

I think Jake Daniels coming out is outstanding and one of the bravest things in football - I reckon his actions will do far more for the lgbtq community than players wearing a rainbow shirt because they are told to.

Actions an individual chooses are far more important than actions they are made to do.

2.) 18 May 2022 17:02:11
I don't believe he has let himself down at all. He is perfectly entitled to believe in what he wants to.
His religion, his country and presumably his friends and family have a contrary view to our own.
Whilst we may believe we are correct to hold the views we do, he believes he is correct to hold the views he does.
The massive problem currently is that no one is allowed to hold a view that doesn't correspond to the majority. We are told what we should believe, indeed freedom of speech is under significant attack.
Whilst I have absolutely no problem with whatever a persons sexuality is, equally it should be a right to have an opposite opinion.
That right should apply for any topic/ view.

{Ed001's Note - his religion does not hold a contrary view. That is not true and it is ignorance and bigotry that allows it to persist.}

3.) 18 May 2022 17:33:41
Exactly Ed!

People are being persecuted, jailed and murdered for being gay.

Don’t hide behind gastroenteritis- come out and say he is homophobic

Only reason jake Daniel’s had to come out like that in first place is because of people like gauye.

4.) 18 May 2022 17:49:15
I stand corrected Ed but still maintain that personal views are just that whether agreeable or not.

{Ed001's Note - then we will move nowhere as a society. You may as well say it is ok for murders to be committed as that person feels it is agreeable.}



11 Mar 2022 22:23:26
We won't go down. Doom and gloom merchants same as on here couple of seasons ago.
We will finish above Norwich, Watford, Burnley, Leeds and Brentford
We are better than all 5 of these

I also fancy us to beat palace in cup and get to semis

Let frank do his job in summer and reckon top 16 next season is on the cards ?.


{Ed025's Note - im with you sobs..

1.) 11 Mar 2022 23:08:05
Top 16?

{Ed025's Note - yes..

2.) 12 Mar 2022 08:50:56
Yep Sobs agree with all of that, think some on here would be happy to say I told you so, good post mate.

3.) 12 Mar 2022 12:42:14
Top 16? Jesus it really has got that bad.

4.) 12 Mar 2022 14:39:55
I will always be positive and support the club, but reality is we are utterly crap. The players alone are fully culpable. My heart and head says we will stay up but I honestly think it will be extremely close. I just hope if this is the reality the board finally wake up and move on as many of these absolute under achievers as quickly as possible. Keane holgate allan iwobi Kenny tosun rondon. also I would be flabbergasted if he continues with coleman (I love the lad) but reality is he has been atrocious this season. Patterson has to start in my opinion. Not seen much of him but he must be starving to play, he cannot possibly be worse than kenny and I'm still perplexed as to why he was subbed against bore off wood! I would have thought Kenny for richarlison rather than hauling off Patterson who was our best outlet in that 1st half.



02 Mar 2022 15:21:14
Looking forward to Ed 2 having to answer a load of FFP questions now Usmanov has gone ?.


1.) 02 Mar 2022 16:24:12
I think Everton are to commended for moving quickly to suspend all ties with Usmanov, what happens next is anyones guess.

2.) 02 Mar 2022 17:24:07
Doesn't bother him GB, his virtual arse is still in the boardroom. Not Evertons fault but a National/ Government (both main Parties) disgrace.

3.) 02 Mar 2022 17:25:53
I don't think there is an answer Sobs.

4.) 02 Mar 2022 18:39:25
Abramovich selling up. Wonder what Usmanov's instructions are to Mr M.

5.) 02 Mar 2022 19:05:10
Selling up and giving all proceeds to Ukraine charities and not calling in his Billion plus loans. Can't say goodbye fast enough eh? I applaud his stance in that regard but goes to show the fear he has for his leaders. Rather walk away than condemn. It's only a fraction of his wealth and I'm sure he will make a nice profit on his other properties etc. Kids oiked out of school next.
I assume its even easier for USM to slip away without a club to give away. The issue is if FMs money is investigated. I reckon we will be up for sale soon enough. Toxic by proxy.

6.) 02 Mar 2022 19:18:07
Does wiping the loans mean the 1.5billion debt just goes?

Still think it’s crazy they can get in so much debt and have no consequences. Absolutely crazy.

7.) 02 Mar 2022 19:57:07
It's a debt to himself so if his statement is true, yeah, wiped, erased, scrubbed.

8.) 02 Mar 2022 19:42:09
Ed002 Please can you enlighten us on here as to what is going to be the most likely outcome to this Usmanov involvement, so much rubbish being rumoured would appreciate your view thanks.

{Ed002's Note - For now he is one of the 200-300 wealthy Russians being chased by HMG - regardless of whether they have done anything wrong or not. There is nothing to say he has done anything wrong so think of it it as a suspension for now.}

9.) 02 Mar 2022 20:41:40
Thanks for that Ed mate.

10.) 02 Mar 2022 22:46:40
He’s not the messiah he’s a very naughty boy.

11.) 02 Mar 2022 23:47:24
Sanction assets frozen by the EU. These naughty boys are beholden to Mr P for his largess and they know how long his arms are. Where Everton are concerned it is they initiating suspension of involvement (however tenuous) in three companies under the Usmanov umbrella, jumping before they are pushed. UK has so far left Usmanov and Abramovich off their list. Hopefully this though is the start of London being disinfected.

12.) 03 Mar 2022 01:01:58
Germans have seized Usmanov's 800 million dollar boat according to reports. Presumably anything owned by these guys is open to be seized.

13.) 03 Mar 2022 18:30:57
Where’s his Rolls Royce parked?

14.) 03 Mar 2022 19:11:51
Someone in the local will know Woburn. Not hard in this City ?.

15.) 03 Mar 2022 19:07:34
ED02 out of curiosity out of the 200-300 the HMG are chasing how many are not Russian like Usmanov.

{Ed002's Note - Uzbek was a Soviet republic when he was born and the concept of “Russia” was much later. Without checking I am sure a decent number fall in to the category of being born in old Russian replulics and some may have citizenship of other nations now.}

Listen to that heart felt plea from the Ukraine Journalist. Abramovich, Usmanov not touched by UK.

6.) 01 Mar 2022 20:00:11
Been saying it for years but no one listens, this was Ken, sold it to them.

7.) 01 Mar 2022 21:14:18
Usminovy was sentenced to 8 yrs in usbesikstan - stealing money from the public - #the peoples club.



24 Feb 2022 17:33:02
Situation in Ukraine puts things into prospective - it's shocking.

Wonder how this will effect EFC and it's money in the long run - Usmanov will come under scrutiny I believe (and rightly so)

However much more at play than EFC.


1.) 24 Feb 2022 17:59:20
It’s bad news Sobs.

2.) 24 Feb 2022 19:33:44
Not good at all, hope it gets sorted quickly.

How have they moved way ahead?

I don’t agree with that - if they want our third choice left back then so be it - we have x2 decent left backs at club.

We also have a top keeper, quality defensive midfielder, world class left winger and x2 youn forwards who scored over 40 goals between them last season

If we get a right back and a playmaker (or get James playing) we will have quality all over the park

Come on have some faith


This is the basis of a pretty decent team.

Jack Harrison still at Leeds - they got him from Man City - I haven’t seen much of him play - says he was at Boro for a bit but I don’t remember him.

I’d like Spence (at loan at Forrest) from Boro but I’m guessing a few will.


{Ed077's Note - No. IIRC, Jack Harrison was at Liverpool and Man Utd before moving to the US on some sort of scholarship and later joining Man City. He then was loaned out to Leeds and later joined them permanently.

Maybe you should first give young Patterson a few games before signing his replacement?
