That game sums up what we knew, most of these players are not good enough, Davis Sigurdsson, Iwobi.
We need quality to go with the players that will gel some of these other players Gomez needs a player like Guye alongside home and a Coutinho or Rodriguez to get best out of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.


1.) 06 Jul 2020 23:27:40
To be honest, there are more than those 3 who are not good enough, we don't even have anyone out injured who could come in and make an impact. on a lighter note, Gordon looks to have a bright future, he should definitly start the next game.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 23:49:45
I thought Davies played well but what am I saying I forgot most blues can't wait to get on the 22 year olds back because he's a local lad and we all know how Everton fans love to crucify a local player God help Gorden when Davies finally has enough and leaves only to be called a traitor and snake by the same fans who crucify him.

3.) 06 Jul 2020 23:59:12
Gordon was the only shining light in a terrible performance.

Spurs were rubbish and there for the taking.

Very disappointing after our last 3 results - probably the slim chance of Europe now gone.

Some rebuilding to do in the next month or so.

I don’t get Sigurdsson - he offers nothing - I’m assuming the continual selection of him is to get him in the shop window so to speak but if anyone watched him they’ll be asking us to pay them to take him off our hands.
Iwobi also poor, seems to shy away.
Gomes also had a stinker - always appeared to want to play it backwards.

4.) 07 Jul 2020 10:10:34
Davies being a local lad has nothing to do with the fact that he is not good enough. He did not have a good game and is clearly not good enough for a team aspiring to be trophy winners.
That game last night was there for the taking, against a Spurs side low on confidence and morale. But we have a team with zero creativity in the midfield, and I’m not just talking about Davies. Iwobi is clueless, I really cannot see how the guy became a prem player, offers nothing. Gomes since his injury is slow and can’t make a forward pass. Sigurdsson is a coward who clearly has not got what it takes to play in midfield. Bernard too lightweight for the prem. Delph bloody pointless.
That gents is our midfield, and that is why we are boring to watch and have no creativity, and why DCL and Richy spend all night running around for nothing.
We need at least two midfielders and a right winger or another striker.
Without them we are f****d.

5.) 07 Jul 2020 10:46:57
I agree Woburn, Tom Davies has 100 appearance's for Everton now, there is no agenda to get on his back more just because he is an Everton fan, it because its clear he is not good enough for the level we're currently at, nevermind the level we aspire to be at, he gives away silly free kicks regularly, his lack of pace off the mark plays into that, also if he doesn't receive the ball in acres of space, he generally loses it or becomes involved in a scrap for it, which obviously kills any momentum we're hoping to build, if we hadn't lost Gbamin, and Delph didn't have chronic injury issues the harsh fact is that Davies wouldn't start many games, if Carlo gets some of his targets in the Summer, I can see Davies either going on loan or going permanently, I would wish him nothing but the best, but its time to face facts.

6.) 07 Jul 2020 11:09:30
Been a while since I posted but after last nights debacle maybe time to share my disappointment!
Sigurdsson has become the new Schneiderlin absolutely gave nothing, Davies is not improving, DCL will never be a 20 goal striker although he puts a shift in. Bernard to lightweight for the premier league., Kean I'm sot sure about really haven't seen enough of him. Iwobi just drifts in the game with no real contribution exactly why Arsenal moved him on. Gordon promising yes but will we expect to much to soon? I thought Digne was okay but to few had any commitment to the cause last night, Ancelotti has a massive rebuild!

7.) 07 Jul 2020 12:43:41
Davies improved second half but I agree the lads just nkt good enough. Sigurdson I woukd give away to get him off the wage bill. I woukd seriously start playing richiarlison on the wing and giving mouse kean a run of games.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 16:17:48
Davies is not improving his match awareness is below PL standard for one thing, and that's how football goes it's nothing to do with his being one of us. Saying he will leave and be called a traitor for doing so, probably won't happen because that decision will be in the hands of someone else.
I could imagine the EFL is his next stomping ground.

9.) 07 Jul 2020 16:27:19
Posters are saying Dcl will never be a 20 goal striker, before the lockdown he was scoring almost a goal a game.

I am sorry but the service he is getting from our midfield is woeful, playing it short around the back four and keeper then a hoof up to our forward line.

Our midfield is offering absolute zero to the forward line, it is down to Richarlison to try and get the ball rolling, and our two full backs getting down the wings.

Teams know we offer nothing in midfield are instructed to double up on Richardson and stop him playing and crowd Dcl.

Until we get that midfield sorted, then our good work in defence and attack will count for nothing.

10.) 07 Jul 2020 20:03:59
Well said bignev.
No way should anyone be slating DCL - he is getting no service.
The midfield lacks creativity and he’s feeding off scraps. Get a creative midfielder or even a midfielder who isn’t afraid to go forward with the ball and supply the strikers and it’ll be a different outcome.
Like the look of Gordon and hopefully he’ll be able to provide that killer pass our midfield is lacking.

11.) 07 Jul 2020 21:27:29
I would play Holgate in midfield until we get someone better. Sigurdsson should be nowhere near the first eleven. Leave Richarlison on the left wing, Gordon on the right and give Keane a chance with DCL in the middle. Sorted and they pay me nothing.

12.) 08 Jul 2020 19:16:12
I like holgate in midfield as well. Problem there is then we only have 2 CBs. So many new players required. A bit worrying really given our financial situation.

13.) 10 Jul 2020 02:06:34
Carrying on from my previous post above, it was down to our fullback yet again to create our chance for the goal against Southampton, only Gordon again came out with any credit in that midfield.

Against Wolves on Sunday I would keep the same defence, if Holgate is still injured and forward line, play Gordon Baningime and if fit Gomes in midfield, and daft as this sounds I would play both Digne and Baines on the left, with whoever on the right, will leave it to other posters to select the right wing.

{Ed025's Note - the midfield is a major problem bignev, i will make excuses for gomes as i dont think hes fit but davies, sigurdsson and iwobi are not worth a carrot, they offer nothing and i can see ritchie and DCL getting very frustrated with the lack of service, im a big fan of carlo but i have to question his reluctance to change things and even though i realise we do not have great depth i would play kids before those 3 mate..



03 Feb 2019 23:51:21
I don't see where our next win is coming from to be honest I think we are in as much mess as we have been for last 3 seasons just a different manager in charge, I know he is ex reds but go get Rafa he is world class manager, we won't get anyone has good as him in our situation without champions league.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 09:06:32
i said the same before we appointed silva.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 12:29:47
The first thing that should be done is to ditch the zonal marking system he using then I think we will start to see better defending.



27 Jan 2019 23:04:05
Easy to make comments after the manager has not worked out the best we could of got this season was 7th and a good cup run, ok out of cup but 7th is still achievable but for me it's important next 15 games of season as will set tone for summer and new season we can't keep sacking managers.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 09:08:51
We can’t keep appointing poor managers either.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 09:20:08
Good sensible post mate, too many knee jerk reactions on here, by the way some write I don't think they would be happy with any manager, he has to have time and I am sure the Club will give him it.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 11:46:14
A manager has to show he can coach a side and improve players at his disposal. Also he has to motivate and irrespective of results these things can be seen by most supporters.
Sadly none of these things are showing under the present manager and they should be visible within a few short months. Yes time to win trophies and challenge at the top but not long for there to be signs of improvement.
Look to Man U, total change in the team right away.
So Guernsey cannot exept what your saying in anyway.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 16:57:03
Who would you have as manager then dark clouds.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 18:03:49
Well Maureen's free at present GB. Think she would come till the end of the season?

{Ed025's Note - i cant think of a worse candidate nick..

6.) 28 Jan 2019 18:30:13
Yeah right mate.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 20:41:11
its not about finishing 7th its about the quality of football and being entertained, if silva is still manager for next season i for one will not be renewing my season ticket after 32 years.

8.) 28 Jan 2019 20:54:35
Bad managers who do okay elsewhere. Maybe we are the problem? Might be me but something gone wrong with heart and sole of playing side of club. Watched prog on Sunderland other day and some scary similarities.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 10:52:15
Asked who I would have as manager, not easy I admit but quite fancy Arteta, he knows the club and did want the job in the summer.
I exept that a good coach which he must be to be right hand to Pep at City does not allways make a good manager but no manager comes without risk anyway.
He lives in the area and knows what Evertonians want, he must be a good shout.
I like the look of Lampard at Derby but it is early days in his management career.



17 Jul 2018 22:14:54
Everton in advanced talks for Malcom

Just hit sky.




12 May 2018 14:24:25
I think fans are being a bit too impatient yes been a disaster all round. I did not get carried away at start of season and certainly did not expect us to finish any higher that 7th but we were suppose to bridge the gap start a plan a vision, we have finished 8th maybe 9th after tomorrow but feels like just survived.

We are in a worse situation than end of last summer. No matter who comes in the likely hood is that we won't finish any higher than 7th next season, it's a case of stick or twist for Moshiri even though I don't lik Sam he would probably gaurentee if where bringing in a silva or foncesca is a huge gamble and could end within 10 games If we get bad start, I mean although silva does play a nice style he has not spent a whole season at a english club, Eddie Howe would be a better option than him let's not forget this will be Bournemouth 3rd season in prem and he does it playing football and a philosophy, with better players I think he is a top manager.


1.) 12 May 2018 15:27:58
I would honestly rather see us relegated having a go and taking a gamble, than see us finish 7th/ 8th watching the dross we’ve seen this season. Until we all stop thinking negatively and just about survival we are never going to kick on as a club. As much as I loathe them, we need to take a leaf out of dark side, and just start believing where our rightful place is: back at the top.

2.) 12 May 2018 16:21:56
I feel like there's an inbetween from being relegated to competing haha.

3.) 12 May 2018 17:17:11
Self fulfilling mediocrity. not the kind of aim I want for us Hugo. Roll the dice and have a go.

4.) 13 May 2018 09:59:45
Even thou I was really glad when Sam came in, I really have change my mind now, The problem is, since we've been safe from relegation he has had the chance to play more attacking football, play more attacking players, he hasn't, this I feel is the only way he knows how to set teams up, difficult to beat but with no real attacking threat, I thank him for what he has done, but if we want top players, we need a manager that can play top style football, no point buying attacking players and asking them to defend in our own half for 90 mins.

{Ed025's Note - i agree simon..

5.) 13 May 2018 22:23:33
He’s probably got a clause for more money per point so taking a safe 1 than risk it for 3.

Potter would be my choice and I know he wouldn't be everyone's choice, but I like the football he plays and seems to implement his ideas very quickly, gets the most out of his players, there was only one negative to Brighton last season and that was putting ball in net but created lots of chance.
I'm fed up of trying to bridge the gap to top 4/ 6 so quickly that it impacts what players we recruit, let's get a young manager that is improving and implements a style and build from there.


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

1.) 10 Jun 2021 16:56:33
He gets my vote!

2.) 10 Jun 2021 17:25:54
I agree mate, Potter was the first name I mentioned to my mates when I heard CA had left. Might not be the most glamorous name about or the most successful but I think we need to be looking past who the best individual is and looking more at who the best partner would be for Brands, and for me Potter fits well with a lot of what Brands is trying to do.

3.) 10 Jun 2021 18:58:17
I guess if we want to be mid table Potter would be an ideal fit.



21 Apr 2021 00:04:37
This is a great opportunity now, what I mean by that is football is so up in the air now, will there be punishment, how is champions league going to revamp. Whilst back in the domestic league 6 clubs all have a set of fans turned against them with a lot of protests and trying to get rid of owners, these clubs are vulnerable, time to take advantage while this rumbles on, I don't mean the rest of season it will be next 12-18 months.


1.) 21 Apr 2021 00:30:53
Ed02 can you see there be punishment I can't I think should be. They all should be given big fines and money should then be given to grassroots football.

{Ed002's Note - If they leave to start a new competition then yes, because they drop their affiliation. As it is, legal advice has been taken but I can’t see that there will be any punishment.}

2.) 21 Apr 2021 03:22:02
Don't be fooled - the sniveling 6 have only changed their tune because their business advisors didn't fully appreciate the risk that they would be banned from the Premier League, That their fans and their players would turn against them and TV revenue would be at risk - not improved

They are still selfishly thinking of themselves - not football as a whole and they will try again in the future if it suits them and to hell with the rest of us

We shouldn't welcome them back with open arms. We need to send a message to them that this act of treachery is totally unacceptable

If that means fines, points deductions, exclusion from competitions so be it. Doing that might cause legal challenges, it might change some of their supporters feelings but letting them come back without penalty will not stop their plotting to line their own greedy pockets again in the future. FOOTBALL is bigger than them!

3.) 21 Apr 2021 04:31:02
They won’t be punished, they’ll be welcomed back with open arms. More chance they’d be rewarded for coming back in the first place.



31 Jan 2021 13:16:03
It's hard to take that 1/ 3rd of our defeats in league has come at the hands of Newcastle in the league.
Way too much doom and gloom, and I don't know if it's down to the way this season is panning out or the fact we our now expecting more than what we would of settled for at start of season.
The aim as always been to get into Europe and Carlo has always stated that is the goal.
Yesterday was a lazy performance and missed opportunity, personally I would of stuck with the same back 4 that have looked solid, so much space behind our full backs.


{Ed025's Note - expectation is high TBM because we know that when we are at it we are a match for anyone, unfortunately we have days like yesterday when it looks like we just cant be arsed mate..

1.) 31 Jan 2021 14:34:27
Consistency is.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 14:38:29
Just watching Leicester-Leeds. The pace of the game is great. Watch it then think of how we played yesterday. Then tell me we will still get into Europe.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 15:06:29
Not a chance mate.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 16:31:14
Leicester and Leeds have played like that all season and Leeds are below us and Leicester aren't far away if we win our games in hand.
Plus we took 4 points off the fast paced Leicester.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 17:30:11
Leeds won't be below us for long based on that.
Win our games in hand against City and Villa. Very funny Smit😂.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 17:39:04
Well we've beaten, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Leicester so why can't we beat Villa and City? Or are they unbeatable? 🤣.

7.) 31 Jan 2021 18:46:02
Anything is possible, I guess we can beat them, only right now not many of us fans see us doing it .
Carlo has a 'rep. ' that would erode dramatically in the football world if he cannot improve upon this last outing, because they let him down massively and right now we do not look like a 'top half of the PL ' team in any shape or form.
On paper we do of course though fits and starts only in practice, and to our frustration we looked very wishy washy poor against NUFC !

8.) 31 Jan 2021 19:46:32
Smit I would love to be wrong mate, but we are currently in free fall, and nowhere near the level we were at early season. I’m basing my views on our last two games where we were battered by Leicester but managed a draw. And then we’re done by a team who had lost there last five.

9.) 31 Jan 2021 20:32:56
We've lost 2 in 9 and everyones heads are falling off. 8th but played 2 less games than all above us. 3pts from 2 games and were 5th.
Come on.

10.) 31 Jan 2021 21:04:50
I think it's the manner we are losing Smitty, that concerns us, if we could blame Jordan (which we can't against NUFC) or 'var', lucky pens. lucky deflection, or quite simply the opposition are light years ahead of us in quality ala Man City, the thing is mate we are looking bloody awful atm.



01 Nov 2020 23:20:27
Not great again today but unlike last week where Southampton were excellent, the same can't be said for today, players missing I get that but the intensity we played with has vanished, we were aggressive and since the infamous VVD tackle and media rubbish storm we looked like a soft team, players pressing is slow, Calvert lewin is the real deal he wastes very little and his chest control was brilliant.
The more games Richarlison and Rodriguez play well the more games we win but after that the drop off is massive.


1.) 02 Nov 2020 08:14:30
It will get fixed mate, but it will take time. Carlo knows we don't have the quality outside the 1st 11 (among the seniors) . All they have done is perhaps to convince Carlo look toward toward our U 23's to bring through. January is difficult so it will be a case of best foot forward until summer. If I was offered 7th now, I would take it.



26 Sep 2020 20:06:09
Can't believe how enjoyable it is to watch us, we have identity at last, Carlo and Brands have got Everton's recruitment right this time and haven't spent a lot doing it. Moshri for the first time must be beaming, all though he has made mistakes, his ambition and backing can't be questioned.

Personally think Rondon would be ok we want someone who will back up DCL Rondon is a handful and would not be to much of worry filling in for him it’s a cheap way of filing a gap that is not a priority, Kean never played or did King so what’s the point in spending money on a position that Rondon could do a job for 12 months.

No not at all it’s media just hyping everything wait to you see all the players they get linked too, Rafa is going nowhere, he had lot of bottle taking this job especially with how toxic it was before he was announced, he is settling all that down and building good relations with fans close to his home, I don’t see why he would risk that for Newcastle job it’s not like they are going to challenging for title or champions league over next few years, in fact any new manager will likely get sacked within 12 months.

Yea damage was done but feel we rectified that from last summer till now where players bought in are either regulars and improved us or the ones that have not worked out like Kean, we have moved him on and not lost money on, less players coming in per window which is Key, few more need to go over next 2 windows.
