See the league have declined our request to postpone burnley game. Apparently one of the "fit and available" players is DCL who is just back training after 3 months out. Literally zero integrity about the premier League but think they give roughly zero Fu*ks. If dcl has to play and gets injured hope the money obsessed premier League will pay his wages whilst he's out. Utter disgrace, just makes a total farce of the league.

Go easy on the egg nog mate.

2.) 23 Dec 2021 14:23:41
Well hopefully Rafa will not play him unless he is 100% ready. We have the kids who looked good against Chelsea and as a last resort we have Rondon. On second thoughts let's hope Burnley put in a request for postponement, they are bound to be successful.

3.) 23 Dec 2021 15:05:37
Yet they allowed City to cancel 'just as their bad patch hit' how surprising.

4.) 23 Dec 2021 16:16:04
This desision boarders on the illegal, it should be the same rules for everyone.
It does come as no surprise, we have always come out on the wrong side of official rulings, it really is time we started to stand up for ourselves, better lawyers, as well as better players .

5.) 23 Dec 2021 16:32:05
doe's seem strange that teams like City who have a massive squad can get cancellations. Yet teams like our's with threadbare squads are made to continue. Slightly baffling.

6.) 23 Dec 2021 17:01:05
Premier league motto regarding Everton has always been f*** em.
Gather the bus driver can play and all the behind the scenes hangers on.

7.) 23 Dec 2021 17:50:49
Can anyone answer this question.
Who are on this committee that have turned down Everton's request for a postponement.
If we are privy to this information we might be able to work out who's interests they are operating in, it's not evetons, it's not football, so is it the broadcasters, or are there more selfinteresting motives. ?

8.) 23 Dec 2021 17:58:15
Don't be daft he will play Rondon.

9.) 23 Dec 2021 23:09:42
It will be all about the money and not wanting to have to pay Amazon back the shed load of money they’ve paid for the games
A rearranged date won’t be as attractive or lucrative.

10.) 24 Dec 2021 06:48:13
I think you're bang on ST.

Now people can correct me if I'm wrong but from watching the press conference this is what I understand the situation to be.

For the game to go ahead you need 13 outfield players plus 1 keeper.

Everton have fit; 11 outfield players and 3 keepers. 6 injured outfield players and 5 outfield players with Corona. So they are changing the rules, it's a joke.

Above in this thread people are talking about not playing DCL well as one of our fit 11 outfield players he might not have any choice. Of our 11 other fit outfield players 5 are under the ages of 20. So I believe that is; Simms, Dobbin, branthwaitte, Onyango and another? Not sure who else we have.

So to not start DCL we will have to start with 4 players who have never played a full 90 in the PL and 1 that has only played 1 90 in the PL with only DCL on the subs bench plus 2 keepers.

Out of the 11 fit out field players and least 3 are strikers (not knowing who the fit senior players are) DCL, Simms, Dobbin. But rondon and cenk might be fit. So we have 11 outfield players and 5 of them could be strikers and we are being forced to play.

To be honest it's absolutely pathetic and the premier League are shameful. If this was one of their favourites like city Liverpool utd Chelsea there is no way this game would go ahead if they had a squad in the situation ours is in.


11.) 24 Dec 2021 08:25:27
Seems like double standards when other games on the same day have already been postponed due to C.V.

12.) 24 Dec 2021 11:36:01
Just seen on the Everton insta page it has been called off due to injuries and C.V. At least they saw sense in the end.

13.) 24 Dec 2021 15:55:10
Think it was also that they realised people didn’t want to be miserable over Christmas period, so decided having to watch Burnley v Everton wouldn’t be a good idea. Putting Mary Poppins on instead, magic.



26 May 2021 19:45:18
Apparently Nathan Broadhead getting a new 2 year deal. Nothing against the lad at all (I've barely seen him play which says a lot) but he's 23 years old and has barely had a sniff of first team football even though we haven't been able to fill the bench half the time. I might be being harsh but just feels like a repeat of likes of Garbutt and Pennington that we end up paying to their mid to late 20s and they never do anything.


1.) 27 May 2021 02:48:41
Maybe we’ll sell him this summer or maybe the club thing he’ll be a late bloomer.

2.) 27 May 2021 07:16:53
Yea maybe mate - And to be fair look where Jamie Vardy was at 23. Guess it's just the history with the others I mentioned that made me think are we just too desperate for someone to come through that we hang onto players that aren't really good enough!

3.) 27 May 2021 09:04:19
We have a squad of players that don't fit in with CAs idea of how we should be playing. I presume he see's Broadhead as a player with the attributes that he requires and hope he will improve, therefore wants him to stay. Whether or not he will make it only time will tell. He may just end up a squad player on the bench and then be sold. It may also help our financial situation as we may be able to go for players that will make a difference to the 1st team rather than compromise and bring in a 1st team and a squad player in the same position with limited funds. I personally think we have been over paying for players that are in effect squad players not 1st team starters and not enough due diligence was done with some of our signings hence the considerable amount of money spent for minimal return. That and the numerous management changes.

4.) 27 May 2021 21:41:50
I absolutely think we should fill the bench with the likes of Broadhead, Gordon, Onyango, Nkyoiyou rather than the useless dross we currently deploy.

Replace the 7 or 8 squad players and salaries with 3 or 4 absolute quality first team starters. Use youth to fill the gaps, we don't have huge game commitments anyway.



07 Mar 2021 19:34:49
Anyone heard anything about the doucoure rumours? Broken foot and out for the season?


1.) 07 Mar 2021 20:17:22
Hope not. If so who did he kick and how are they doing?

2.) 08 Mar 2021 17:01:22
Looks like it’s true as he’s not in the squad today.

3.) 12 Mar 2021 20:44:39
From the press conference today Carlo says he has a fracture and out for 8-10 weeks I think
Not confirmed if stress fracture or impact, quite a loss I feel.

4.) 12 Mar 2021 22:52:31
Yea massive loss that isn't it. Not the news we needed for the last 2 months of the sesson but hopefully Davies can consistently perform the way he has done in a couple of recent games as that would go a long way to filling the void.

5.) 13 Mar 2021 08:36:11
Massive opportunity for Davies.

6.) 12 Mar 2021 19:13:50
8-10 weeks out. Hats off to you TD you were spot on. One of best info that's been on here.

7.) 13 Mar 2021 14:35:59
Better than the Riquelme sightings? 😳.



19 Feb 2020 07:24:56
Ed002 I appreciate this may be a bit of a vague question so shoot me down if you have no idea. But you've nentioned player sales would be needed to help towards ffp, do you gave any idea who we might be looking to, or happy to, sell? And is there any interest in any of them?!


{Ed002's Note - Aside from the fringe players who do not have significant value, nope. Obviously there is money in the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Morgan Schneiderlin.}

1.) 19 Feb 2020 09:29:23
Happy for either or both of those to go tbh. Sigurdsson has just been too inconsistent since we bought him, the odd fantastic game then nothing for weeks.

2.) 19 Feb 2020 16:02:30
Cheers Ed. Yea agree gibbo. Not convinced we'd get much for either but at least something plus massive wages off the books! Sickening to think siggy schneiderlin Walcott and sandro costs us somewhere near half a million a week and none of them are good enough!

3.) 19 Feb 2020 17:21:51
My best memory of Sig’s was that wonder goal against Leicester, I couldn’t get tickets in the away end so had to sit with the Leicester fans. I had to look annoyed when it rifled in. 😂.

Fingers crossed for tonight blues, let's get goodison bouncing! The way I see it if we can't get 3 points from a poor Watford side (reserves! ) then Brentford and Palace at home then we deserve to go down!


1.) 19 May 2022 12:14:19
We will mate, we want a Fortress Goodison, keep at them for the whole game and give the crowd something to shout aboutCOYB.

2.) 19 May 2022 12:40:00
We've got to cut out the mistakes that have been slitting our throats all season. I've got no doubt that the crowd will be up for it and will give the players that extra boost needed to help us crawl over the line. Let's just hope the players respond in the right way, get the three points and put an end to our misery once and for all. We just can't let this go to the last game of the season.

3.) 19 May 2022 13:35:01
Defensive mistakes will always happen with this squad til we get a natural leader who can defend and organise the defence. Defenders like Tony Adams, bonucci, vidic, kompany. Someone to yell at his team and keep them alert. God knows who is out there and available. But as it stands its only pickford who shouts at the defence.

4.) 19 May 2022 14:58:58
Spot on Dentie.
Defence is so much better when Mina is in there as he does that role so well in cajoling and organising the defence.
Shame he’s so injury prone - if we could get a full season out of him we would be so much better defensively and wouldn’t need to recruit a player in that mould.

5.) 19 May 2022 18:13:30
I liked that big black guy for rangers last night. Fast, massive and extremely strong. Brilliant reader intercepting the ball. Was well impressed.

6.) 19 May 2022 19:14:28
If you’re referring to Bassey - agree he was immense last night.

Kostic for frankfurt was also impressive, fast and good deliveries into the box.

These are the type of players would like to see in our team.

7.) 19 May 2022 19:25:41
Good singer too.



01 May 2022 18:33:33
Absolutely tremendous win. Pickford was outstanding - not just the brilliant saves but came a couple of times and took the ball (something I often criticise him for not doing! ) . Massive performance from him when we desperately needed it!




04 Mar 2022 15:58:03
Good to get through last night. Performance wasn't there but who cares in a cup match just get the job done!
On seeing the team sheet I couldn't help but have a big sigh of relief that Rafa benitez isn't still our manager - think if he'd selected Rondon and left dobbin on the bench against non-league team then goodison might have been burned to the ground ???.




26 Feb 2022 20:01:37
What is there to say about that? He has not made a mistake, it is clear and obvious cheating. He has multiple replays and it is a blatant penalty - not just in our view either, have had mates supporting a variety of clubs texting their disbelief about that.
It is a disgrace. Kavanagh is a cheat and should be ashamed of himself.

That farce aside though, pathetic goal to concede. Coleman let's ball come across too easily as ever, holgate lazily sticks out a leg, Keane embarrassing. Those 3 make mistakes so regularly it's no surprise. They have cost us a lot of points this season and will continue to do so whilst they are at the football club.


1.) 26 Feb 2022 20:45:25
I agree wholeheartedly with this, we need to get rid of all 3 and add Kenny and Iwobi. NSNO.

2.) 26 Feb 2022 21:13:52
Sorry gents I’m a big critic of all 3, but they were really good the whole game today and it was just unfortunate one mistake cost us.

The amount of pressure we were soaking up in the second half amazed it didn’t happen sooner.

Hopefully the team take heart from the performance - which I think is best I’ve seen the team play in a long while - rather than dwell on the result and robbery by the officials.

{Ed025's Note - im with you dan, proud of the guys today mate..

3.) 26 Feb 2022 21:21:08
Even if it was a mistake it’s still handball.

4.) 26 Feb 2022 21:52:41
Dollo- I was referring to their goal as the mistake.

5.) 26 Feb 2022 22:39:53
I'm a huge critic of those players as everybody is aware. However I feel like that particular moment is nitpicking as they played well.

6.) 26 Feb 2022 23:39:08
Tiredness and brutally unlucky for Kean. He is deservingly target if fan flack but that was just unlucky, he was wrong footed and didn't he didn't have time to adjust. Handball decision was criminal. I've been proud that our game had avoided any on field scandals of match fixing etc the last 20 or so years but that was such a ridiculous decision that must be investigated because there is no excuse other than cheating. We deserved a point after the 1st half counter attack display and Pickford saves. Thought we played well and if we can take the positive, we will be ok.

7.) 27 Feb 2022 06:38:47
I would take 17th now mate and would say I agree with you if all our games are at home. Our away form us more than worrying though, it is that going to hurt us. We need to get above those falling above us and hold.

8.) 27 Feb 2022 07:17:04
He did have time to adjust, he just didn't adjust in time. I agree the lads mentioned largely played well - but again that's why we're where we are because even when they play well they concede a goal like that. And our standards are now so low that we think it's great that they were mainly good and only cost us 1 goal through woeful defending.
Call it nitpicking or whatever you like, fact is we would have drawn that game without conceding a schoolboy goal. Everyone's entitled to opinion, but mine is that settling for players where you're pleased if they only cock up for 1 goal in a game isn't the way forward!

{Ed025's Note - in our position davey we dont need to get on the players backs imo, of course they need replacing but now is the time to unite behind the boys in this battle and not destroy the little confidence they nave mate..

9.) 27 Feb 2022 07:47:22
Why was Keane embarrassing ToffeeDavey? He was off balance and weight to his left. Coleman didn't allow the ball, he was beaten, Holgate didn't stick out a leg he made a genuine effort. Some on here act as if they have never played football. It is competitive and physical 90 minutes with the body at it's extreme edge. Let's start being a little more objective, no doubt players read this stuff in and on the media. They are human.



12 Feb 2022 08:35:35
Hopefully pick up a very much needed win today! You often find when a manager is sacked the players up their game, and when new manager appointed they up their game. Unfortunately we have lost 2 out of 2 since the sacking and neither game against particularly good sides.
Our squad is very poor, and passionless on the pitch. If we can scramble to safety this year, and gradually ease the ffp burden we can start looking up again in 2 or 3 years time.


1.) 12 Feb 2022 08:52:38
Hope you are right mate reports coming out Mykolenko unavailable, so many out now.

2.) 12 Feb 2022 09:07:07
I’m sure we beat Brentford. Or did I imagine it? ??.

3.) 12 Feb 2022 09:19:45
We did jimmy but I reckon we should have sacked the cup off this year. Our focus needs to be on survival. Pug kids out in FA cup for experience - with our injuries, we will need to blood them quick.

4.) 12 Feb 2022 09:48:07
Ahh yea you're right Jimmy - hopefully those 3 points will help us stay up ?.

5.) 12 Feb 2022 10:25:04
TD, I knew you were 'sailing close to the wind' with your OP mate, I even thought to myself the crafty sod did so deliberately to catch some one out


6.) 12 Feb 2022 12:43:23
Why would you want to sack the cup?
If we do well in it it breeds confidence around the team. Gives us fans something to cheer and look forward to. Also gives frank a chance to try different players out and get them used to how he wants them to play.

There is obviously the risk of picking up injuries but that’s part and parcel of the game.

We should go all out to win the cup.

7.) 12 Feb 2022 13:38:03
Think he meant the league amd not all comps. Let's hope we sneak a win today, even if its by an awful var decision.

GD why would you prefer him over Batshuayi? The latter has a fairly average record in the premier League, jebbison has a fairly average record in the lower leagues!

How could it possibly be a £20m initial outlay if the £20m includes add ons? I get that you don't like the signing, but there's no need to exaggerate the figures to try and support your viewpoint that it's a bad signing.

£20m including potential add ons (and from what I gather the add ons are usually based on things going well - so there won't be add ons if they've had our kecks down as you say)

Agree Dan. Everyone involved must be completely brain dead. We stayed up because the fans got so behind the team and willed them to wins against teams far better than us. Then a matter of weeks later these utter morons are trying to ensure we start this season with the same negativity we started last season - genuinely beggars belief!

Fear not mate, Ed002 has previously explained that "lampard won't want him".


{Ed002's Note - Lampard wants other Chelsea players, perhaps a buy two get on free deal?}

Find the issue with cole coaching Gordon weird. He spent a long time as one of the best full backs in the world, regularly facing the best wide men in the world. To me that makes him pretty well placed to coach a winger on how to get the better of full backs/ what would make him more difficult to play against!

Lads just calm down for a little moment and realise that Alan's comment was nothing to do with Gordon's hair colour. He just missed a comma in his reply to gingerdan. "Gordon is useless, ginger".

Pickford distribution was decent if we ignore the multiple occasions he kicked it straight out of play. I know that's the norm with him, but it's just not the norm for prem keepers. He's got a decent left leg, big problem he has is that it's not as good as he thinks it is.

Seemed to have them in decent shape to beat a very poor opponent today to be fair.
In answer to the original question, yes would love Watkins as he's a far better forward than DCL.

What is the plan you know of JB? Who we signing? Hope it's a goodun! Whoever it is needs to be good enough to be genuije competition to DCL rather than a backup because DCL needs to up his game by a long stretch in my humble opinion.
