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. 😂.

Hopeful of a good result tomorrow and looking forward to seeing how we line up! It's the first time since the opening 3 games of the season that we've had DCL and Richy got to start in the same team and we took 7 points from those 3 games so plenty of cause for optimisim!


1.) 21 Jan 2022 19:14:29
Agree looking forward to this match more than any one in a long time.
Want to see passion on the in Goodison, on the pitch, and in the Manager's box.


We're all with you Dunc.

4.) 21 Jan 2022 21:55:20
Noise level volume 10+.

{Ed025's Note - at least nick..



18 Jan 2022 18:10:49
I don't get why so many on here think we're in a relegation battle? The consensus was that Rafa did an appalling job. well if we just match the first half of the season in the second (and have just got a full squad back after injuries) we would stay up so how can people be worried about relegation? Lots of comments about how it was the manager not the players so surely we'll stay up very easily indeed?!




16 Jan 2022 08:15:25
Very amusing that there's lots of shouts for Martinez now! If we cast our minds back a few short years he was the first of the procession of managers to be forced out by the bitterest of fan bases!
Aside from money, not sure what would inspire him or any human to come and manage EFC!


1.) 16 Jan 2022 09:05:25
Big Dunc for me, for now at least, I wouldn't pick Rooney for a few years. Longterm if dunc isn't an option, I'd choose Graham Potter from Brighton!

2.) 16 Jan 2022 10:03:04
I think big Dunc has done long enough as assistant to have a go at the job. Lampard went straight into management, Rooney did, Arteta left citeh for arsenal job. Big Dunc wants it so let him have it. He has as much change keeping us up as anyone else.

3.) 16 Jan 2022 11:20:32
Moshri came in with deep pockets, brought a Doris if a DoF in out of his pay grade, sone numpties flew a banner and that began the spiral, add into the mix the mythical advisors (and Mr U) and we were stuffed from the start. Ed could confirm, I may be wrong but I suspect these 'advisors' are still around.

{Ed002's Note - There is still advice available and it is needed after allowing Brands to leave.}

4.) 16 Jan 2022 11:38:21
Brands! Wasn't allowed to do his job.

5.) 16 Jan 2022 11:35:58
Please tell me it us coming from 'football' people Ed!

{Ed002's Note - They are people associated with football.}

6.) 16 Jan 2022 12:08:04
Chrs Ed.



23 Nov 2021 17:27:17
Obviously ideally none. but given our dire financial fair play position if we had to sell one of richy dcl and Pickford (only saleable assets really! ) who would you pick?


{Ed014's Note - Pickford

1.) 23 Nov 2021 17:56:54

2.) 23 Nov 2021 18:41:41

3.) 23 Nov 2021 18:42:25
Richarlison - been disappointed with him filling in for DCL - hardly had a shot on target. Throws himself to the ground too easily, seems to be stropping more than usual, needless yellow card the other day and now banned for a game we need to win.

Also his inclusion in Brazil squad would hopefully mean we could get a decent price for him.

Would keep DCL and Pickford - DCL much harder to replace and Pickford wouldn’t get a decent price for and may struggle to replace him.

4.) 23 Nov 2021 18:42:45
Why would you want to sell our better players?

5.) 23 Nov 2021 19:08:28
Woburn - it was a hypothetical question from TD - I don’t think any of us would want to sell our better players.

However it’s a good hypothetical question.

6.) 23 Nov 2021 19:54:42
All of them and the other 8 start again.

7.) 23 Nov 2021 22:58:37
In that case Dan, Iwobi.

8.) 24 Nov 2021 08:37:53
I don't think any of them help our immediate FFP problems

Even if we sold them today any profit would only show in the accounts for year ending 30th June 2022 and wouldn't be audited or disclosed to the EPL until Dec 2022.

If our accounts for year ending 30th June 2021 which will be published next month are bad and the EPL enforces some kind of punishment on us we might need all 3 of them as we might not be allowed to buy anyone.

9.) 24 Nov 2021 09:06:16
Sell Richarlison and buy Lingard.

10.) 24 Nov 2021 12:29:37
To those suggesting Pickford, he’s the only one of the three who does what he’s paid to. Richarlison is an attacking player who doesn’t create or score many and DCL is a striker who misses more decent chances than he scores.

I’d say Richarlison of the three because he’s probably on the most wages and produces the least.



28 Aug 2021 17:53:21
Hopefully whoever we end up signing, if anyone, will get backed by the fans. After all, there was a fair bit of negativity about gray and Townsend and they don't appear to have started too badly.
Very early days of course, but interesting that lots of fans were disappointed with Rafa and used negative football as reason (strange when we had ancelotti before, the most negative, pedestrian football I have ever witnessed) and we've scored 7 goals in 3 games! Last year we averaged 1.2 goals per game. Feel really confident that rafa will manage to keep us mid table whilst not spending much and slashing huge sums off the wage bill.


1.) 28 Aug 2021 18:04:24
Not to mention the negativity towards Rafa also.

MKBlue you say they both had James available and that may be true. but he was costing us in excess of ten million pounds per year and we're in the mud with ffp as it is. James has been replaced by demarai gray who is on course to beat his goals/ assists from last season easily. he'll be on a fraction of the wages and cost buttons. Add to that, he and Townsend were signed to provide service to dcl who has turned out to be injured all season so I'd say given that fact they are doing pretty well. Rafa is without dcl, without siggy (not his biggest fan, but look at the goals and assists he contributed last season) and reduced our wage bill by circa 350k per WEEK getting shut of James and Bernard. He needs time to refine the squad further and then we can judge how he's doing but to say he has the same squad as Carlo is either naive or disingenuous.

Gutted to hear that Worcester. I haven't seen the Ukrainian lad play so worrying to hear that you've seen plenty of him and he's an average Joe ?. We all know how poor digne has been for a sustained period so I don't mind him going but had hoped the replacement was going to be a decent player.

Out of interest, what constitutes a derisory offer for some kid that can't get in the first team of a club that play in a pub league? Or is it just derisory because Steven Gerrard said so?

Wouldn't worry that we've left it too late DFS. if we double the points we've got in the first half of the season we'll be fine. And given that Rafa was widely considered to be a huge failure you'd think it's reasonable to expect that we will do far more than equal the return from first half of the season!

Wouldn't stress too much about who the new manager will be folks (apart from for those that need a name in order to start work on the ***** out banner) . We are an unattractive club, with a bunch of players with questionable attitudes and a fanbase that will force whoever it is out of we don't look like qualifying for Europe early in their tenure!

The digne thing is another example of how badly the club is run isn't it?! I know we have different views on just how good digne is, but that aside he's essentially gone after a disagreement with a manager who the board must have known was only one loss away from the sack!

Lots of good points there EFC. total shambles from the top isn't it and it's just impossible to see when it's ever going to end.
