A name I've not seen mentioned as manager if/ when Silva departs, is Gareth Southgate.
I'm sure i read a few months ago that he would like another shot at club management.
Does anybody know if he would be in contention? Thoughts on getting him?
Personally i am concerned by his previous club stints, but he really seems to be blooming since taking over England.


1.) 09 Oct 2019 16:15:06
Decent shout Worcester.

{Ed002's Note - You can put Gareth Southgate out of your thoughts. He won't be joining Everton.}

2.) 09 Oct 2019 16:54:55
Thats a shame, but i guess with a big international tournament on the horizon, it really isn't a surprise. More likely available next summer after the Euros?
I think my other big shout of someone who could do a great job is Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds. High quality manager and really have no idea why he took a job in the Championship.
Let's face facts though, Silva could well stay for the rest of the year. It only takes 3 or 4 good results to turn things around and this team is more than capable of that! I really wouldn't be surprised to see him finish the season with us, a mid table finish but adding a cup, he seems to be going all out for the Carabao judging by starting line-ups.

3.) 09 Oct 2019 17:07:18
We had one ex England manager, that was enough.

4.) 09 Oct 2019 17:22:54
Would not even want him in my thoughts.

5.) 09 Oct 2019 17:36:08
Ok Charlie, never employ another ex England manager again regardless of how amazing they could be. Very intelligent thinking to rule people out because Allardyce was once a manager there.

6.) 09 Oct 2019 17:47:09
Just shows the Logic in some shouts Worcester mate, but hey its a game of opinions lol.

7.) 09 Oct 2019 18:03:49
Steve Gibson had to sack him, Gibson doesn't fire from the hip so to speak, league footy is a bit different methinks .
Not for me anyway.

8.) 09 Oct 2019 21:53:06
He’s not even a good England manager😂.

9.) 09 Oct 2019 23:37:16
Southgate is an awful manager. Best thing he has done is beat Colombia on penalties. Would actually rather have Gary Megson.

10.) 10 Oct 2019 15:52:27
why would you want gareth southgate?

11.) 10 Oct 2019 17:18:06
Gallardo, the Ajax manager or Benitez for me.

12.) 11 Oct 2019 01:47:27
I don’t think Southgate would leave the England job nor would he be sacked easily, as he was coached specifically for that job for years. All from coaching youth England teams to U21’s specifically brought through by the FA to do things how they want going forward (basically a yes man) Working so far!

13.) 11 Oct 2019 01:50:05
Mourinho for me as we can’t risk taking a chance on another unknown or up and coming manager. The excuses need to stop and Mourinho or Benitez are proven at the top.

14.) 11 Oct 2019 04:58:59
Adi Hutter for me.

15.) 11 Oct 2019 07:03:15
Not a good Club Manager and a 'Yes' man, ideal for the FA neanderthals. Still Benitez for me, Gallardo by another poster a good call as well.

16.) 11 Oct 2019 22:36:53
Southgate seriously what has he done in management win a few matches against average opposition, there would be managers I would rather take in the championship than him.

17.) 12 Oct 2019 11:14:33
A huge no. International football is so different to club football. Look at Martinez. People forget how bad of a manager he was at club level because he's more successful in an international set up with Belgium.

{Ed025's Note - i still think if he could have sorted our defence out he would still be with us BT, offensively he was very good and we played attractive stuff but he needed help with the back four which was awful, we have become a graveyard for managers who all get bogged down by the weight of expectation mate and it will need someone very special to buck that trend..

18.) 13 Oct 2019 19:17:54
Martinez was and is an excellent footballing coach, if only as Ed says he (Martinez) had sought a decent defensive coach, he would still be here. Martinez was asked to leave while we were 11th, we are currently 18th yet this guy continues to be teflon coated.



08 Aug 2019 08:05:40
So Morgan Sanson, i know naff all about him yet he is getting a lot of hype on here. Is he really that good?
I would have loved Doucoure, the kind of powerhouse midfielder that every successful team needs, plus proven in the EPL.
My question is, would Sanson or Doucoure be the better signing? I know Doucoure is not happening now but curious how Sanson fairs in comparison.




18 May 2019 05:33:42
Hearing a rumour that Richarlison is off to Atletico Madrid. Anyone know if someones pulling my leg or if its actually a possibility?
Be very, very gutted to lose him so soon, especially with supposed interest in Digne too and Gomes now looking very unlikely. We'll be back to square one rather than slowly building a decent team if these happen.


1.) 18 May 2019 11:19:29
Worcester mate with athletico losing griezman to Barcelona Spanish journalists just linking
richarlinson with a move to athletico but even is there interested I just can't see us selling one of are prize assets and the same goes with digne but it is good other teams covert are players as that means we really have some top players and that's good sign for us.

2.) 18 May 2019 12:33:51
Richarlison will be playing for United, Inter, Barca, PSG, Atletico and any other team with a few quid next season lol. All this is just gossip so I’ll stick my neck out and say in my opinion there are only 2 possibilities:

Definitely not Chelsea
Definitely Everton.



19 Jul 2018 15:30:25
Can I ask any of the Eds a quick question, mix of Everton and Chelsea related.

With Courtois apparently looking to leave, Chelsea will be in the market for a keeper. How do Chelsea stand on home grown quota for this upcoming season? I ask about homegrown because if they need to meet that requirement then it makes me more nervous about a Pickford approach, 2 birds with 1 stone and all that. Whereas if they are comfortably safe in that requirement then I can rest much easier because they can probably cherry pick whoever they want.


{Ed002's Note - They are fine right now but I am aware of three that will leave. Chelsea has not made any approach for Pickford and are interested in someone else. Right now, I would not worry Worcester.}

1.) 19 Jul 2018 15:42:04
cheers Ed.

2.) 19 Jul 2018 18:01:24
Thank you very much Ed02.

It aroused my suspicion as my gut feeling was that was one of their prime reasons in a move for Barkley. I'm probably completely wrong but nobody really believed he was better than who they already had.

Keep Pickford here as long as we can and we have a chance of building a team that can challenge top 6.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs have to maintain a level of HG and often use number 3 keepers if they are one short.}

3.) 20 Jul 2018 10:52:24
Ed002: Aren’t the rules for UEFA completions (Champions League and Europa League) even tougher regarding the number of HG players in that there has to be a certain number of “club-trained” players amongst the “homegrown (I. e. association-trained) ” players in registered squads?

{Ed002's Note - The rules differ slightly and may be adopted or adapted by the EPL at some point. The EPL rules are a max of 25 players over 21 of which a max of 17 can be non-Home Grown). The remaining eight have to be HG (spending 3 years between 16 and 21 with an English or Welsh side, regardless of nationality). If there are not enough HG players, then the squad size reduces, so if there are only six, the squad reduces to 23. In terms of UEFA competitions, the rules vary slightly with the eight "HG". A maximum of four of those eight can be trained by other clubs in the English and Welsh association. The remaining have to be club trained. So If Arsenal were to recruit John Terry, he would fall in to the category of being association trained (by Chelsea) rather than club trained. Again, if there are not sufficient club trained players the squad size is reduced.}



04 Jan 2018 16:32:15
So SSN has a couple of Everton snippets. I've never trusted it for rumours, sources and what have you, but have noticed that when they give transfer news, its generally because it has become pretty mainstream so they're not putting their necks on the line.
Anyways, they say Tosun is done at 27mil and we have strong interest in Seri. The Eds have long since said about Tosun but is our interest in Seri real? Great player to land imo.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 18:36:07
The Tosun deal won't be confirmed until Jim White is on the phone confirming it with his good pal Moshiri. 🤣.

Hypothetical question, just gauging peoples views on a possible but very unlikely signing.

If Watford are relegated, i imagine Doucoure will be available and there's no reason we couldn't persuade him to join. However, i understand Carlo is/ was interested in signing his Napoli enforcer Allan.

Which would be the better signing for us, that would give us back the steel we lost after selling Gueye?


1.) 25 Feb 2020 16:53:17
If it were possible I would take Doucoure, has prem experience and a good engine. Never seen Allan play, and before Carlo turned up had never heard of him. Even so he has no prem experience so would take time to settle.

2.) 25 Feb 2020 18:15:47
Doucoure for similar reasons as Brass, and isn’t he a lot younger than Allan?

3.) 25 Feb 2020 20:44:24
Agree with above - Doucoure with his premier league experience would trump Allan who is an unknown could be a Bernard or a Sandro scenario.

4.) 26 Feb 2020 07:10:42
The only thing I know about Allen is he's made more tackles than any other player in seria A over the last 3 seasons.

5.) 26 Feb 2020 07:40:44
Doucoure is a fine player. I’d take him any day. If Watford go down it will not just be us sniffing around him.



15 Feb 2020 13:56:43
The Man city appeal over the severity of their ban is going to be interesting.
Chelsea got a very excessive transfer ban compared to other clubs breaching but had this reduced on appeal due to fairness of punishment compared to others. But in Man Citys case, haven't AC Milan served a European ban which means that a precedent has already been set so it can't be ruled as unjust in comparison.
I see a reduction but next seasons spots could be wide open again.


{Ed002's Note - You seem to be very muddled. Chelsea has never breached FFP and Milan did not need to serve a ban.}

1.) 15 Feb 2020 15:30:43
Chelsea's transfer ban was for breach of transfer rules.
City have already had a punishment for breach of FFP which was a squad reduction but was about 5 years ago.

2.) 16 Feb 2020 01:31:37
Milan banned for FFP breach

3.) 16 Feb 2020 01:30:21
Ed. I'm sure Milan had a year out of Europe for some reason. Maybe this year even.

{Ed002's Note - Yes they are out for this season but that was not due to the original problem and ban - it negotiated a deal to be out this year to give the new owners time to get the finances in order - they haven't done that by the way.}



09 Dec 2019 17:18:58
Out of curiosity, a little hypothetical scenario for everyone.

If we can only get 1 win out of our next 3 games, which game would you rather do it in?

Myself, i'd rather get the cup win over Leicester. I know we need points on the board, but i think we will get what we need this season to edge us away from relegation.

It's squeaky bum time atm but i don't really feel like relegation is a serious threat just now. We're sure as hell not getting top 6 so let's push for a route into Europe through a Silverware win.


1.) 09 Dec 2019 18:50:30
Points every time, once in the Championship very difficult to get out. Cup competitions come and go. Wigan won the FA Cup look where they are now.

2.) 09 Dec 2019 19:00:52
DFS, Yep Points are 'The Name Of The Game' for the foreseeable . Never ever take them for granted we should all know now they 'don't grow on trees'!

3.) 09 Dec 2019 21:22:45
Cup run - we are desperate for a trophy. There is no way we are going down.
But if I was offered league cup and finishing 17th or finishing 8-12th I would take the cup.

4.) 09 Dec 2019 22:07:57
Would take the win in the cup and two draws since you didn't mention losses 🤗.

5.) 10 Dec 2019 01:46:03
That's a tough one. Naively I think we are too good to go down but we still need points to improve our fragile confidence give us a chance of moving up the table but with Liverpool in the 3rd round of the FA Cup I wouldn't want to go out of a cup we could win if the gods look kindly on us

A bit of a twist on Duncs call. Win at least one of the league games, draw with Leicester in the cup but go through on penalties.



08 Dec 2019 16:42:04
Sensational result yesterday! Big Dunc was my idol growing up watching Everton, so it was especially pleasing to see the players show the same passion and desire that he did in his playing days for us. It was so heart warming to see his pride managing this amazing club.

I think the clamour to make him permanent manager is too early though. He admits himself that he is not ready, players need to prove over a number of games that they will constantly fight for victory for him, and he needs to show that he has different plans and tactical knowledge against a variety of opponents else we'll be looking at a new manager again in 12 months. Just look at Solksjaer to see how rash appointments based on sentiment works out. I'd personally keep him until end of January, give him time to thoroughly prove himself and see if he gives optimism for progression or if an established manager is the route to go, either way it's better than a short-term Moyes solution.

Our next 3 matches are very tough. It's so difficult to judge anybody on this run of games so i implore everybody to ease off on the inevitable abuse if things don't go well. Support us for once rather than desperately hoping for any little gripe to whinge about.


1.) 08 Dec 2019 17:30:25
Definitely one for the future for me. Any manager is a risk Gerrard at Rangers Lampard at Chelsea both thrown in with little managment experience. If DF is in charge and we win or draw then why change? Takes the pressure off appointing a short term target while we try to get out number one.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 18:26:16
After reading his programme notes I swear I could have taken on the entire Chelsea team and beaten them 3-1. I was completely taken in by his passion and love for the club. Running through brick walls would have been an easy ask after reading that.

So yes, keep him there for now so that we can patiently find the correct replacement, not that the Silva appointment was rushed though. It took us 6 months to get him. I just hope we get it right this time and start showing a return on these millions the club is spending on trying to get us up the league.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 18:47:11
Worcester mate, who is clamouring, none I have read. Dunc did what he was supposed to do yesterday, it was a brilliant PR move by Kenwright and Moshri because the expectation was not there to win. It was there however, (from those of us that saw him play and every week see him metaphorically kicking every ball) , to see this side put in an owed performance of endeavour and never say die. That is what he achieved. For me any new Manager would be doing a huge service by having Dunc as his 2 I/ C.

4.) 08 Dec 2019 19:42:45
Well you clearly don't read many posts despite responding on them all Billscrocodiletears. Who is clamouring - within 30 secs you find posts from Skylark, Goodison Grow, Dark Clouds and Pauly doing just that.

5.) 08 Dec 2019 19:42:45

6.) 09 Dec 2019 07:42:53
That was instant reaction to the game, not clamouring Worcester there is a difference. But opinions eh!



05 Dec 2019 10:41:21
Does anybody know if we are simply looking for a temporary manager to save us from relegation, or would the appointment be offered a long term opportunity?
Moyes coming back would depress out of me, the way he treated us was unforgivable! But if its purely 6 months only and it saves us then i can get on board and support him through gritted teeth.

One thing i would find interesting to know also. Would people here rather take another 6 months of Big Scam and his soul destroying football but have a chance to move up the table, or stick with Silva in the blind hope he somehow turned things around? Both options suck i know. Its like asking if you'd rather cut off a hand or a foot.


1.) 05 Dec 2019 11:52:14
Sam plays awful football and makes no excuses, he does exactly what it says on the can. He was brought in to early seasom before last. This Season the Board have left it to late but it is precisely the position Alardyce is usually hired for. No I am not sure Moyes is the right man, would have Benitez but not available till January.

2.) 05 Dec 2019 12:26:06
I think Benitez would keep us above 18th personally .

3.) 05 Dec 2019 14:51:39
Right up until yesterday, I still had a glimmer of belief that we could turn this around. Even in our worst seasons we almost always put up a brave spirited fight against Liverpool. We lose, but we fight. With the exception of Richarlison yesterday we had no fight, no spirit and that glimmer of belief was thoroughly stamped on.

So yes right now I would take Sam, Moyes (but not Hughes) or anyone else as long as it isn't Silva.

There doesn't need to be proof of multiple bidders for naming rights. If only one company made an offer then that's what you would have to accept else be without a sponsor.
We may need to prove that it is in the realms of correct value, that the deal isn't (x) amount more than realistic offers should be, but amount of bidders doesn't really come into it.

Whether he's happy here or not, a player will almost always want to move to Barca, it's definitely squeaky bum time. If there offer hits £100m which isn't much of an improved offer then it may sadly happen. Hopefully we can try to get someone from them in return, another loan to buy.

Stones was very solid for us, and would definitely be an improvement despite some of his dubious 'play from the back' mishaps. i'd like us to re-sign him. The thing is, would he really want to return? a lot of fans (myself included) gave him hell after he left and i think that will always be a factor in his decision.


{Ed025's Note - hes a professional worcester and i dont think that would be a problem, the fee and wages might though mate..

As i see it, transfers in Jan are unlikely to help. Don't get me wrong, i love to see us bringing in new faces but this season is more or less a write off for us at this point. Save the pennies until summer and avoid the overpricing that comes with a January buy.

How can it be a rumour by definition? If i write an article saying that Messi is the type of player we should be looking to sign, does that mean he's rumoured to join us or that we're trying to sign him? - of course not!

Iwobi has talent but doesn't use it enough. There were games early in the season where he impressed, was a real attacking threat and he showed potential to be a great signing. Maybe, like the majority of the squad this year, its a case of a dire season so his/ their heart isn't in it. We know Sig is better than this seasons form, as is Digne Coleman Bernard etc. Even DCL was a pile of poop when Silva was around.

So frustrating, i remember his first game where he looked so confident, i thought he was the perfect Gueye replacement. Half a game later and he's done for the season. I say with the way this season has gone that we may as well let him recover fully, same with Gomes, and start afresh next year. No rushing back and making things worse.

Oh and does anybody know, does Gbamin have a history of injuries before joining that is continuing now, or are we just unlucky?

This is just an awful thread! What is going on? - Are you moaning that we didn't get Moyes back even though Carlo Ancellotti is one of the grearest managers in the game? Or are you moaning because you just want signing for of it and Moyes is buying players we don't even want?

"Since Moyes only Lukaku has been sold on for profit" - hmmmn how about Gueye, roughly 22m profit. No doubt Lookman was profitable. John Stones brought in a good sum, i'm going to say 35 mil profit roughly.
Sadly we had to sell Onyekuru but wasn't he also profitable?
(obviously not including wages and fees in these figures, just like for like transfer fees)

Im supremely confident we would make profit on a number of our players now if we chose to sell (Gomes, Digne, DCL, Richarlison) so please, stop skewing facts to suit an argument.

You're a bundle of laughs aren't you dplanno.
I was one of those who thought he was a headless chicken. Yes he was very very quick but he literally had nothing else to his game. Even last season he struggled when he joined Wolves.
Credit to the lad he has obviously worked hard and looks to have a bright future. A couple of years ago though, he was indeed an unproven waste of money! You said surely we should have signed him because everyone could see he has pace - well Usain Bolt is still putting himself out there, should we sign him?
