Rumoured that Frank might go after Billy Gilmour, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja. All out on loan from Chelsea at the moment and all good young players.
Would definitely like Gallagher and Broja.


1.) 21 Feb 2022 18:32:54
Yep they would all be good for us.


2.) 21 Feb 2022 21:24:03
Those are the 2 I’d want the most. Broja is a freak, only player I’ve ever seen outpace Raphael Varane.


3.) 21 Feb 2022 22:30:19
Did it say whether they would be loans or perm? Doubt we'd get them perm.


4.) 21 Feb 2022 22:57:17
Probably loans but maybe Gallagher on a permanent? Problem with Chelsea is they often let good talent go when they shouldn’t and they have so many midfield and attacking options that it’s hard to imagine them keeping them all long term.


5.) 22 Feb 2022 09:17:47
No chance of Chelsea selling Gallagher to anyone - he’ll be in there squad next season. Gilmour looks far more likely. Broja maybe, but others will be interested, including Southampton.


6.) 22 Feb 2022 12:09:03
Don’t want Gilmore he can’t even get in the Norwich team and when he does he is poor. It’s ok playing well for Chelsea when surrounded by world class players but if he came to Everton he would be surrounded by poor players much like at Norwich so would fail miserably!


7.) 23 Feb 2022 01:33:13
Don’t see us getting any of them tbh especially not Gallagher, lazy links imo.


8.) 24 Feb 2022 11:07:35
No chance of Gallagher, he will be in the Chelsea squad next season without a doubt. Gilmour? Surely we have players in the U23's that are just as capable as he is? Can't even get a game at Norwich right now. Borja is doing well on loan but, again, do we need him? Simms and Dobbins should get a go before we look at youth from another prem team. In all honesty, I think these are just 'journalists' putting two and two together to get five, only linking us with them because of FL"s links to Chelsea.


9.) 24 Feb 2022 12:42:51
But would Gallagher be happy sitting on the bench every week? Never say never.


10.) 24 Feb 2022 18:08:37
Broja is miles better than Simms. Simms will be sold in the summer most likely anyway.

Broja can also play anywhere on the front 3 pretty much. Should never turn down good players.

Dobbin should be around the first team more next season, that leaves us with Richarlison because DCL will most likely be leaving. Potentially Rondon still but hopefully not.

So yes I’d say we need Broja.


11.) 24 Feb 2022 18:16:08
I like the look of Broja. A young DCL with muscle.


12.) 28 Feb 2022 22:24:27
Love to sign Broja on a perm deal, but could just be lazy journos as frank gave him his debut if I read right
3 cracking prospects but alas only one could be on loan.


 

 

29 Jan 2022 20:35:22
Ed how many loans can we actually make?

{Ed025's Note - 2 i believe mate..


1.) 29 Jan 2022 20:38:54
Sorry but I take it that doesn’t include El Kazi?

{Ed025's Note - yes it does im afraid mate..


2.) 29 Jan 2022 20:54:59
Ed025 to me we need 2 centre mids before the deadline, a ball player and a destroyer. Say we get VDB or Loftus cheek on loan that's the ball player sorted, but do you think well have the time and wiggle room with FFP to get a decent 6 as were cany loan in anyone else can we?

{Ed025's Note - i think it can be done fanatic, but time is not on our side mate..


3.) 29 Jan 2022 21:05:57
I think the rules are two loans from premier league clubs but can’t be from the same club
Think you can loan from outside prem as well.


4.) 29 Jan 2022 22:47:20
Can we send El Ghazi back in this window, if the manager does not want him Ed?

{Ed025's Note - i wouldn,t think so baz a contract will have been signed, you never know though mate he could be an asset and score a few goals for us..


5.) 29 Jan 2022 23:14:15
I hope the whole of that word comes true.


6.) 30 Jan 2022 09:39:15
I personally would put some faith in Onayango and just try and get 1 midfielder in then reassess in the summer.


 

 

28 Jan 2022 21:19:07
Lampard offered the job. Now let's all pull together.


1.) 28 Jan 2022 21:31:14
Spot on mate?.

{Ed0666's Note - clearly the Grafitti worked. Pandering to the fans I see trouble ahead…


2.) 28 Jan 2022 21:39:52
Don’t know about that. Worked for Liverpool when the wanted the yanks out.


3.) 28 Jan 2022 21:44:01
Of course there'll be trouble ahead ed0666 this is Everton.

However as ed002 thinks it'll be a decent option and not sure it's pandering to the fans but more so they've thought the options through and he was the best candidate who was available to us.


4.) 28 Jan 2022 21:56:38
Trust Ed 666 to pour cold water on it.

{Ed025's Note - hes a red JB, ...what do you expect?..


5.) 28 Jan 2022 22:01:41
As long as he takes it, let’s see what he can bring to the table…

Good luck to him and let’s hope he gets a tube out of this lot.


6.) 29 Jan 2022 00:15:46
Already looking forward to Lamps v Klopp.


7.) 29 Jan 2022 08:58:44
666 just having a pop, wanted us to double down on Kia's choice and guarantee relegation. No doubt about it though, Lampard, if he takes it, has his work cut out. Brentford a good opportunity for him to look at the new FB's and the young lads.


 

 

10 Jan 2022 11:09:04
Now looking at a centre half from Bournemouth?
Benitez getting us ready for Championship.


1.) 10 Jan 2022 12:22:57
Apparently quite highly rated and has played well for them.

Surely a championship player is an improvement on Holgate and Keane though?


2.) 10 Jan 2022 13:10:10
Bringing 40yr old Peter Clarke home from Tranmere would be an improvement on those 2 Dan.


3.) 10 Jan 2022 13:21:05
Didn’t Tim Cahill come from Milwall? And Arteta from rangers, wasn’t Jamie Vardy playing in the conference or something, doesn’t matter where they’re from as long as they’re good enough.
Klopp out.


4.) 10 Jan 2022 13:32:00
This is the sort of player we need, young, hungry already his club's captain. Lead them to the most clean sheets.
We keep screaming out to make signings like this then moan when we do.


5.) 10 Jan 2022 14:34:01
Let's just buy all the lower league club captains then. Sorted.


6.) 10 Jan 2022 14:15:38
Centre half from Bournemouth will put us in the Championship c'mon Woburn mate you been on the sauce again, Coleman, Cahill, Arteta and many many more come from lower divisions, nothing wrong with them I can think of.


7.) 10 Jan 2022 15:49:45
That’s three from about thirty thousand?.


8.) 10 Jan 2022 16:30:02
Can’t count mate I added many many more??.


9.) 10 Jan 2022 18:30:12
Someone needs to watch his Xmas Jimmy Tarbuck dvd and cheer up.


10.) 10 Jan 2022 19:27:42
Now that is showing your age brown shoes.
If you disagree with my opinion just say so. Don’t need to try being a smart arse all the time.
Won’t hurt my feelings mate. And I will cheer up when people realise that this guy is not a good manager, and should not be in charge of this club.


11.) 10 Jan 2022 20:05:15
Many many more was a great player ?
But on a serious note, I think there’s some great talent in the championship and what a lot of these players will bring us hunger and desire
As long as we don’t overpay keep the wages reasonable it should give us a better base of players then those who think they can stroll round the pitch at 60-70%.


12.) 10 Jan 2022 22:28:33
They would be the ones we were all getting excited about us signing then?


 

 

15 Dec 2021 11:26:54
Please tell me these rumours are not true about Rooney replacing Benitez.
I'm all for the club going for an English manager, but would have liked one that at least had some experience of managing at this level.

{Ed002's Note - If such a move were to be made it would only be to appease the fans. I cannot see the owner nor the key advisor making such a move at this time.)


1.) 15 Dec 2021 14:13:54
Who is the key advisor Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There is no need to explain.}


2.) 15 Dec 2021 14:46:32
I’d take Dave Watson and Barry Horn over Roony. However jokes aside - need to stick with RB - give him a window and seen who he brings in (Lewis Gibson possibly back too)


3.) 16 Dec 2021 11:21:20
Kia Joorabchian perhaps?

17 May 2022 13:27:06
So I've watched the Branthwaite sending off a few times now, and yes the lad was caught out of position. But I have to ask as the senior defender what was Holgate doing so far up the pitch? He wasn't marking anyone and left Branthwaite on his own to mark their striker.
Had he stayed back and held his position then they would have easily handled the threat.
So yes the young lad was caught out, but he was let down by a senior players lack of discipline.


1.) 17 May 2022 14:55:41
Bit much that mate, why single just one player out for another's mistake? JB was at fault, he didn't judge the flight of the ball properly and it cost him and us. His team mates would have expected him to deal with that but he didn't. I'm not having a go at the lad but I don't think we should be blaming other players for his own mishap. He isn't the first to make a mistake this season and probably won't be the last. If that was Iwobi or Kenny that got caught out then they would be getting battered on here for it! JB has to take it on the chin and learn from this if he wants to be a mainstay in the team.


2.) 17 May 2022 16:09:25
I agree BP. He was the central defender of the 3 and should have been further back and realised to y was behind him. It's criminal to have all our players in their half allowing their striker waiting on the half way. It's like we were asking for the ball to be played over the top.

Additionally, it was 17 minutes into the game. He should have known not to make contact and let him have a shot or at least try and get goal side and try and put him off. I'd have rather it gone 1-1 and us be left with 11 men than it be 1-0 with 10 men with another 73 minutes left to play.


3.) 17 May 2022 17:08:43
Sorry disagree, you should never have one defender back in isolation against there teams striker.
Yes Branthwaite was caught out but he should never have been left on his own. And the reason I singled Holgate out is because he wandered from his position and so caused the issue. Watch it again and tell me I’m wrong.


4.) 17 May 2022 17:18:28
I've watched it again Woburn and I agree with you. The main errors are with branthwaite, but holgate had wandered well into their half - if he hadn't, at the very least he'd have been in a position to get back into a position where it could be argued he was covering so it's a yellow not a red!


5.) 17 May 2022 17:57:19
At the end of the day, the lad is a professional footballer and should have dealt with that ball all day long. To blame others is just masking over JB's mistake and, as I said, if it was certain other players then they would take the blame from fans entirely. If you single out Holgate for another players mistake, surely the other defenders should be mentioned too? I'm no fan of Holgate but the blame lies with JB. Caught slightly out of position and he misjudged the flight of the ball. If, for example, Iwobi gave the ball away and the opposition score, do we blame another player for not showing for a pass?
Not sure how the passage of play went without watching it back. Was it out corner or free kick and they broke away?


6.) 17 May 2022 18:46:35
Well maybe you should watch it then?


7.) 17 May 2022 18:46:40
To answer your question, yes in certain circumstances. If another player (s) could have shown for a pass but hasn't done then although the main error would be with Iwobi there would be no question that others could/ should have done more to avoid the situation unfolding.


8.) 17 May 2022 19:27:20
I watched it live but I'd had a few beers before admittedly. Haven't watched it back as I don't want to see that game again, it's bad enough watching our games once. But watching it again wouldn't change my mind, JB was at fault and he alone. Holgate couldn't make him lose the flight of the ball or prevent him from colliding with their player even if he was back in position. The point is certain players would get slated for making that foul. Because it's one of the kids doesn't mean we should point the finger elsewhere. He made the mistake, nobody else.
TD, I don't think players such as Iwobi would get away with it from a large section of fans.


9.) 17 May 2022 19:43:43
Nonsense to be blaming another player for Branthwaite mistake.

Surely you could argue that Branthwaite should have been up in their half with Holgate and the Brentford player would then have been offside?


10.) 17 May 2022 20:32:30
That would have put him in there half Dan, so no he wouldn’t have been offside.
We were 1-0 up in a game we had to win. Their was no reason for Holgate to go wandering forward and leave a one on one situation at the back.
So before you start writing it off as “nonsense” perhaps you should consider that.


11.) 17 May 2022 20:54:32
Watched it and still nonsense to blame Holgate.

When the ball comes over to the Brentford player Branthwaite is closest to him and gets caught on wrong side.

Both Holgate and Coleman are fairly close to Branthwaite. However the ball bounces to the left of Branthwaite heading towards our goal so into the area Coleman should be covering - he doesn’t even try and sprint back to help out.

Therefore nonsense to blame Holgate - if you want to try and absolve Branthwaite of blame and blame some body else then it is clearly Coleman that should have been helping back there in respect to where the ball went in the passage of play.


12.) 17 May 2022 21:45:59
Holgate was fairly close? You must have a very small tv?
He was half way between there box and the halfway line. Nowhere near Branthwaite, and if you actually read my first post you would see I was not absolving Branthwaite I was pointing out the error in leaving him one on one with their striker. But hey you know best.


13.) 17 May 2022 22:38:44
Just watched it again and your right Holgate was nowhere near where he should have been. Maybe he stopped because he thought we would get a pen? who knows. Yes Branthwaite should still have dealt with it, but he should never have been left alone at the back.
Funny I never noticed that before I was too busy screaming about the penalty.


14.) 17 May 2022 23:12:34
Not sure it matters size of tv.

We played 3 at the back Coleman (right side) branthwaite (centre) and Holgate (left side) with 2 wingbacks (iwobi right, Myko left) .

Our 3 at the back were pretty much all on halfway line when Brentford player gets the ball yet it’s Holgate fault as he’s too far up the pitch?

Even though the ball comes wrong side of Branthwaite and is in the area Coleman should be covering on the right side of our back 3 it’s still Holgate fault?

Also to suggest Holgate was the senior defender when we had Coleman in the back 3 is laughable.

Think we must have been watching a different version of events if you can honestly say Holgate to blame as he was too far up pitch but no mention of Coleman’s position in the back 3 or his inability to help cover. Either that or you’ve just got it in for Holgate?


15.) 17 May 2022 23:34:03
I wonder sometimes if any of you played football. The lad was the CB and was caught out. Just do your job is the mantra.


16.) 18 May 2022 07:17:13
Let's be honest it was a calamity of errors by various people being out of position. But he still shouldn't have made the challenge/ ran into Toney. That's the end of it. He got sent off on 17 minutes of a must win game. That's on him, no one else. If he hadn't made the challenge and they went on and scored yeah we could be arguing that holgate and Coleman were at fault for the goal, that's fair enough. But he got himself sent off which was a brain dead thing to do.

Yes he is young and hopefully will learn from this but a 10 year old should know where their striker is behind him and not to make that challenge, especially if you're the last man back.

Anyone can be forgiven for errors but due the importance of the game and that his red completely turned it upside down it's getting a lot of focus.


17.) 18 May 2022 07:37:06
Bored with this now. You you think Holgate was near the half way line then fine. But he wasn’t, and no I don’t have it in for Holgate. If you actually bothered to read the original post you would maybe understand that.
I repeat when your 1-0 up in a game you have to win then you do not have your centre halves wandering from there position. Have two back so one can play as the covering defender.
We had one on the half way line and the other went for a walk.


18.) 18 May 2022 10:07:29
Whatever Woburn, the team was set up with 3 centrebacks and 2 wingbacks. If 1 centreback went for a walk, one got caught wrong side, what about the other 1?


19.) 18 May 2022 15:36:12
It is easy to blame Branthwaite, he was running at speed right behind the player, a coming together of legs, it was not a blatant foul, where you take one for the team, he got too close behind the player, maybe had he come side on, he may have done enough to head the player off, only mistake Branthwaite made was being right behind the attacking player.

As soon as the attacker puts the brakes on, or slows just a little, Branthwaite is then caught out and his running foot then comes into contact, a bit like Mary Decker and Zola Budd, Decker was right behind Budd and ended up tripping up.

Yet no one is mentioning the experienced Liverpool player being caught out in the Derby, he ends up standing on Gordon’s foot and pushing him, yet no Red card or penalty.


 

 

16 May 2022 13:35:59
So we go into the Palace game with an already depleted squad. To face a team that battered us 4-0 last time out.
Then we face Arsenal, a team going for Champions league.
Well looks like I will be pinning all my hopes on Brentford. ?.


1.) 16 May 2022 15:13:13
Yep that’s what it comes down to, never seen such a poor Everton Team as this, so many poor players.


2.) 16 May 2022 18:29:33
Lots of tripe about how we will never beat Arsenal. We have one 4 of the last 6,and all of the last 3 against them.

Now I'm not saying that means we will win, but it would suggest we have a better chance than no hope.

The best thing about the last few weeks hasn't been our team performance, its been the fans backing of the squad through thick and thin. For me it's made me realise that this is how it should be all the time, we are what can set this team apart from every other side in this country.

Until the footballing gods decided to mess with us, we were absolutely hammering Brentford. No reason we can't do that to Palace, they look disinterested at best against Villa.


3.) 16 May 2022 21:41:25
Well said. We were absolutely battering Brentford until being denied the penalty and then the sending off. We'll have Keane back on Thursday and hopefully Mina on Sunday.


 

 

10 May 2022 20:08:27
That young Irish fullback Mick O' Lencko looks really good. Cracking goal from the lad.


 

 

02 May 2022 00:18:38
Need to wrap Mina up in cotton wool until the next game now.


 

 

24 Apr 2022 23:16:48
Goodison news gave Gordon a 3?
Not sure if these clowns even watch the game, or are actually supporters of the team with some of the ridiculous comments they come out with.
Have binned this site now it's embarrassing.

{Ed0666's Note - The boy has a ‘never say die attitude’ which is priceless! I would build a team round him not because of his talent but his infectious attitude

But at least we’re on our own site mate. And to be fair we have something to moan about.
But if you think we’re that bad try going to an away game. The support there is amazing given they haven’t seen a win. We have always had fantastic away support back in the seventies when I went it was fantastic, and has been ever since.
Yes they have a moan but you know what they are there again spending good money to support their team.
