You couldn't make it up. If true Rodriguez can go back to Madrid for nothing, if they want him back. So no transfer fee, just thanks and bye.
I've a suspicion he's Carlo's love child because he goes everywhere with him.

{Ed025's Note - i think someone has made that up mate..

1.) 18 Jun 2021 09:10:29
But Woburn said you couldn’t make it up Ed 😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - the press can make anything up ST..

That’s hilariously good Southern Toffee. Would also be laughably bad business wouldn’t it! A buy back clause of £0!

3.) 18 Jun 2021 22:35:27
Cud be worse!
We could all be blue and England fans tonight (like me ) !

4.) 18 Jun 2021 17:33:21
Yes Ed I said you couldn’t make it up😂.

Preliminary works started at Bramley Moor. It's starting folks.

1.) 15 Jun 2021 12:10:06
Question is what will be in place first - Manager or new stadium!

2.) 15 Jun 2021 14:59:46
Stadium we will have sacked another two managers by then.



31 Jan 2021 11:19:22
Heard from a mate who works at the ground that there was a bit of a spat after the game between Rodriguez and Richarlison. Maybe just a bit of South American passion?

1.) 31 Jan 2021 13:13:23
Could have done with a bit of passion on the pitch Woburn.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 13:49:33
He was probably hoping Richy would run into space at some point.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 15:01:07
Or maybe he was showing him what it's like to get kicked and not just pretend you have been kicked.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 20:41:35
Might be wrong but it looked like Rodriguez was having a go during the game shouting “ why is it always down to me” “up to me”.



20 Jan 2021 13:14:01
Given the current climate I just can't see how we can bring more players in without selling first. The club like all clubs must be losing money. So it makes no sense to spend more at this time.
However, if they could sell Kean, Bernard and Bolasie. Then they could generate the funds for say a new right back or striker.
So it's understandable why the loan rumours are flying around again.
The way I look at it is if we bring loans in to strengthen the team then great. But if we don't then that's fine too, because as a squad we have improved as the season has progressed, and so European football would still be possible.
Stay positive, stay safe💙.

1.) 20 Jan 2021 14:33:35
The only players I can see possibly leaving in this window are Kenny and Bernard. The players we need to sell or get rid of are Besic Bolasie as they are not even in the squad. Both probably aren't bothered about playing as their wages are pretty tidy and an extra six months sitting out matches wouldn't be too much of a hardship for them.

2.) 21 Jan 2021 08:57:57
Woburn, all clubs will be loosing money, therefore nearly all clubs will be looking at loan players to come in or buy at below market value so for Everton to hope to sell players at current market value is nigh impossible I feel. Everyone needs to be patient I feel for the next 12 months before we get back to some normality. At least if they can loan players and get them off the payroll will be a bonus.

3.) 21 Jan 2021 11:40:46
Thought that’s what I was saying?

4.) 21 Jan 2021 22:06:50
I think I was agreeing with you.

I guess tonight we will find out if the players are behind Rafa or not. Can he motivate them or do we continue in free fall.
Will we carry on with the negative tactics, or is he going to change and try playing to the players strengths. They do have some you know.



05 Dec 2021 23:16:40
People on here blaming Brands for signing everyone and his mate. Have a read of Phil kirkbrides article in the echo. Might open your eyes a little.

1.) 06 Dec 2021 00:13:01
We are a mess Woburn

Who is running this club on a day by day basis

Moshiri - away 90% of the time
An 80 year old Bill Kenwright
Barratt Baxendale who's more interested in Everton in the Community and find another job away from Everton
The Finance Director who let us get into the FFP mess we are in

Or Rafa who should be concentrating on getting a failing team to play better than he has them currently doing?

2.) 06 Dec 2021 04:35:39
I just give up be. I remember thinking when Moshiri arrived, finally we have the clout to compete with the top teams. Yet look at us now, how did we end up in this position?
You know hindsight is a great thing and it’s easy to say this was wrong, and that was wrong, and their to blame. But at the end of the day their is no point having a Director of Football if you are not going to let him Direct.
So we are now in a position we’re the manager and the owner will decide on the clubs transfer policy. But in a way hasn’t Moshiri been doing that already?
I pray that they get this right because in the sixty two years I have followed this great club, I have never been as worried about the direction we are going in as I am now.

3.) 06 Dec 2021 07:44:40
I think you are right Bob

Ever since Moshiri bought the club the majority of decisions on managers, buying players or player contracts have been made by Moshiri, his advisors or the numerous managers we have gone through

That is why we are in the mess we are in

So no change now.

4.) 06 Dec 2021 09:39:51
Yep I agree Bob sadly I fear brands was held back and over ruled constantly, then ultimately sidelined when rafa arrived. For me I'm surprised he stuck at it so long.

5.) 06 Dec 2021 09:48:07
On a plus note I have a feeling Rafa will be willing to say no to Moshiri if Moshiri wants a certain player bought.

Brands never struck me as that type of person - if he was I’d imagine we wouldn’t have ended up with so much dross.

We’ve got to get behind Rafa and support him all the way.

6.) 06 Dec 2021 11:02:40
Agre with this thread.
Blaming Brands is not the answer:
Our long term problems:
*Under 23s that are more interested in winning trophies than instilling any football philosophy or brining players through.
*Loads of dodgy non-Brands signings
*5 "permanent" managers in 6 years all with their own ideas
*Lack of squad depth
*Financial Fair Play slow motion car crash not highlighted by those responsible and/ or warnings totally ignored
*DoF role constantly undermined
*Constant injury crises
*Players looking significantly less fit than opponents
*Poor tactics on the field

These are the responsibility of the training staff, managers, U23 staff, finance director, board, medical staff.
I think that he's been sacked because he went public with what had been a grievance he's held, probably for a long time, and so he can be the scapegoat.

My prediction: Brands will get a good job somewhere else where he'll be allowed to do his job and he'll do well while we'll continue to struggle until things radically change which I hope happens sooner rather than later.

7.) 06 Dec 2021 19:29:48
In reply to BoblatchBlue I think I was more concerned under Peter Johnson. Not that we aren't in a perilous position.



05 Dec 2021 18:14:29
Think we should drop the "People's Club" tag now. Rename our selves "The Haven't Got A Clue Club".



05 Dec 2021 17:20:29
So Brands has resigned, and all our eggs are now in the Benitez basket.
I genuinely fear for this club now, as I do not believe that the players are buying in to the managers tactics.
I can only hope that I'm wrong and he turns it around, but at the moment we are in free fall, and I dread every match at the moment.



02 Dec 2021 09:42:35
Just watched a video of a supporter confronting Brands as he was leaving the stands. The supporter asked him if he was responsible for recruiting the players, and Brands reply was, is it only the players?
Now I could be wrong but that doesn't sound to me like their is perfect harmony within the club.
Now I don't recall whether Brands was for Benitez or not, but his reply tends to suggest not.
Or is he just trying to save his own neck here. Whatever way it's a strong message to be giving out, and shows the disharmony within the board.
Now if the board can't work as a team then the rest of the club have no chance. It needs sorting and sorting quick.

1.) 02 Dec 2021 10:25:30
Hi Woburn

It's also been reported in the Echo

Hard to know what's going on in our club but it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

{Ed025's Note - can it get any worse bw?..

2.) 02 Dec 2021 10:26:51
Just seen the video then does not look good does it. Looks like brands is hinting bigger problems deep in the club. Looks like rafa an brands are far apart.

3.) 02 Dec 2021 10:40:09
Ed, can a board be sacked, and by who?, or are they all share holders?

{Ed025's Note - some of them are charlie, but take it from me thats not happening anytime soon mate..

4.) 02 Dec 2021 23:03:21
Just watch us ED We have miles to go in this journey of disaster.

{Ed025's Note - lets hope not bw, i dont think i can take anymore mate..

Wasn’t it Brands who brought Dacoure in when Carlo hadn’t even heard of him. He brought young Kean in and the kid was never given a chance, yet the top clubs in Europe were fighting for him.
Richarlison, Digne, Mina, Godfrey, Branthwaite, Nikounkou. Gbamin, King, Delph, Gomes, Iwobi, Bernard.
I don’t believe he decided on Rodriguez, Rondon, Grey, Allan or Townsend.
And ultimately that is where the problem is. Their is no point having a DOF if you are constantly changing the manager. Each manager has his own style and the type of player he likes.
It would be like having a new wife each year. They would want a new bed, new furniture and the rooms painted. Then they would have their mates in the background saying, no don’t do what he says do this. It would drive you nuts.
Think the guy is in a no win position here, and I think that message he gave to the fan the other day pretty much highlights that. Yes the guy has made some mistakes, but they have not all been bad, and it would be fascinating to see what the aftermath is if he does go.
Might find out what is actually going on in the club, warts and all.

Well if that happens then the man will definitely be living up to his agent Rafa tag.

We will need a left back if rumours are true about him and Digne mate.

We will certainly have a better chance if he stays with 4-3-3 formation. But it’s a start.

Fact is the guy could have sat there and watched the s**t show unfold. He’d just signed a three year contract after all. I think he’s said to Moshiri, you need to bin Benitez. Moshiri disagreed so he’s resigned.

{Ed0666's Note - or Moshiri told him you are the architect of this SHi* SHOW you need to leave but well be classy about it and say you resigned.
