Hope secret agent usmanov can do a Jedi mind trick on arsenal this is not the attacker you are looking for.

Watched the Spurs match yesterday was impressed that most of their youth players that was playing where for the most a cohesive unit that moved the ball and kept it when needed. Later on the commenters said that this was down to all the teams from under 23s right down to the youngest team plays the way Tottenham first team play from set up to set pieces. This seams to make sence for developing youth maybe this way you don't have to send players out on loan as much. Everton has some great young talent that we never seam to get the best out of as if they do make the first team they struggle to adapt to the higher standeds of play or tactically they don't fit in the position they are played in this then has a knock on effect to the young player and maybe holds him back. Now I'm not saying that how our youth teams are run is not good as we are producing some great players it was just somthing that I had never thought of that made sense why not get our players playing how the first team plays so if and when they are ready/ needed they won't be out of their depth and have a load of players that suposedley was the next big thing to 3 years later we let go because they never reached their potential. Having money (like we now have) is great and is how you survive and challenge for trophies but we also need to bring players through not saying that we would end up like United did with the class of 92 but that being said getting youth to understand what is wanted/ needed of them so that when a established player is out injured we won't be oh crap we only got the kids and then the established player will also have to work hard to get their place back rather then just walk straight back in. Sorry if I went on a bit

To be fair our youth set up is fantastic and we have produced high quality players for a number of years.

David Unsworth and the rest have done wonders there and are probably the most sought after youth coach's there are in the business. If you want any more proof take a look at what Unsy done against Norwich last year with a few kids.

We also do the same as Spurs and pay big money now for young players at other clubs. Just like Alli, Noughton, Walker, Rose and the rest they bought. It's not necessarily their youth set up and more they buy other clubs good work.


2.) 09 Jan 2017 15:43:50
I agree we've had some really exciting kids come through. Plus finch farm has a huge reputation we sign them easier these days. We have a huge amount out on loan as well. Great work

Ok we all must agree we should of not only beaten Watford but destroyed them. I have no faith in us to turn a side over 3/ 4-0 anymore personally would like us to play 3 at the back baines and Coleman as wingbacks with either 3 man midfield withTWO upfront or 2 in midfield 2 upfront with one behind. If that didn't work try something else don't stick to one way of play. This January must be big fir us and none of this deadline day shot either on the 1/ 1/ 17 we best be either parading a new player or players.

Alyn1981

{Ed025's Note - it seems like a battle of wills at the moment alyn, the players dont seem to be adapting to the managers style of play and something has got to give, as you say we need an influx of players to freshen things up, i know i keep saying it but dont expect miracles in january mate..


1.) 11 Dec 2016 16:39:37
Hi Ed025. Not sure what the managers style of play is at the moment. It was pretty clear to me what Martinez style was but I am not quite sure what Koeman wants the players to do. Whatever it is I presume that they are not doing it. Any ideas?

{Ed025's Note - apparently he is an advocate of the high press mike, watching us though its hard to believe as we are so sluggish, its been suggested that a lot of our team are not buying into that and thats where we have a problem, if this is the case then we are between a rock and a hard place and somethings got to give so its either change the manager or the players mate...its the players for me..


2.) 11 Dec 2016 17:02:40
Agree with above. Also, maybe Koeman doesn't know himself what is the best or first choice players. He has after all only 15 games under his belt. Prob has a good idea but if things don't work out as planned he obviously has to go back to square one.


3.) 11 Dec 2016 17:08:23
ed if the players aren't buying into koemans tactics get rid i they are a disgrace in any job you would be sacked.

{Ed025's Note - i agree OTB..


4.) 11 Dec 2016 17:33:31
Thanks ed appreciate your reply. It's pretty obvious that we need a clear out of players and new ones to come in but that will take time. At the moment we play with essentially 7 defensive minded players (I've included the goalkeeper and the two midfield players) and four attacking players. Very difficult to play a high press mode with that team. We need some attacking midfielders who can move the ball forward quickly and also score goals. Until we get this type of player maybe Koeman needs to asses what the players he has can do and modify the playing style to maximize the players capabilities. Let's face it the same players did pretty well for the first five games of the season. What style were they playing then?

{Ed025's Note - thats very true mike and thats why we have been saying that this is a minimum 2 year enterprise before the team will be koemans baby, as you say he can only do so much with this bunch and will gradually weed out the wheat from the chaff, it wont be easy mate and it will certainly be a bumpy ride...so fasten your seat belts..


5.) 12 Dec 2016 09:39:00
What some of us are missing is during the 1st 5 games of the season a lot of teams were also bedding in their players sorting out new systems and getting their own houses in order now they have settled down they are becoming much harder to play against. RK is actually finding out who is capable of playing the way he wants and it pretty obvious that there are not many. Its going to be a long hard season me thinks but I still think we will be stronger for it.

I am currently Everton manager on football manager with 7 premier league titles and 4 champions leagues so I'm going to tell the Everton board how to run this club get a grip idiot! That was a conversation I listened to last night. if all you wannabe managers think it's so easy to run the club and buy players give it a go. Oh ye that's right you only watch football and let's be honest not got millions-billions in the bank so they only shouting I want to here is support for them players that put our shirt on each week.

You are joking mate aren't you? Someone actually said that? Chuckle chuckle. Well I was on football manager and I bought Messi and Ronaldo and for some reason we went bankrupt? Must be a problem with the game!


2.) 01 Sep 2016 19:53:15
Well I actually made Everton the most successful english team ever with 32 league titles and most successful team in Europe with 13 champions league and had a stadium named after me. Maybe I should get on the phone to farhad. 🤔🙄.


3.) 01 Sep 2016 19:54:03
No mate no joke was in Starbucks by showcase and these 2 idiots was comparing their teams against the real Everton side while on Twitter nearly threw my expensive coffee at them but the thought of the price stopped me. My wife asked me what was up as I had to tell her that some of our fellow blues where idiots I never thought I would say that.

Ok not going to lie was a bit disappointed we never did any real business yesterday but then I thought about it if you look at our squad as of today it should be able to keep us in or around the top 6/ 7. Defensively a hell of a lot stronger our middle 2 has shown signs of understanding of each other attacking midfielders we have a lot of options there just need to find the right balance for me the only problem is striker if lukaku gets injured it will be a big ask for the others. I would of liked a goalkeeper but if one is available in January think we can get by till then. What I would ask all Everton fans is remember yes we have got money but that's all we got at the minute we need Some sort of European football to get the really big players to join. I would imagine as I say if the currant squad is around 6/ 7 as of January more players might see us us as a top side.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs rarely plan to buy in January and certainly not goalkeepers.}


1.) 01 Sep 2016 16:09:08
I know that's the trouble. I'm not to bothered about the goalkeeper situation would like a striker.

Transfer Window Fume


Whilst personally I am as disappointed as most people that we didn’t manage to achieve our chosen targets and am annoyed with the way the window panned out, I do feel we need to have some perspective on this issue because of all the moans and ridiculous accusations being thrown around.

So here goes: We had an agreement with Zenit for Witsel but for whatever reason Witsel turned us down because he preferred to move to Juventus. This was the players’ decision (and he got his comeuppance on the last day when Zenit pulled the plug on his move to Juve. ) . NOT OUR FAULT!

Ghezzal: we had an agreement with his club also and made him an offer their Chairman said was almost twenty times his current deal. Yet the player turned us down because he wanted to play in Europe. All credit to the player for putting football reasons before person greed, very rare in today’s market. NOT OUR FAULT!

Perez: Again we had agreement with Deportivo and the player and it looked like completing. Yet Arsenal who said they were not interested in the player a week before, suddenly matched our offer. The player then decided to choose Arsenal because he wanted European Football. NOT OUR FAULT!

Gabbiadini: This deal was always dependent upon Napoli finding a replacement and according to his Agent Napoli really didn’t want to sell him. Hence they deliberately procrastinated throughout. NOT OUR FAULT!

Brahimi: This is a crazy one because of what happened. Initially we had a deal with the Club agreed and Terms with the player agreed. Porto suddenly decided to move the goal posts at the eleventh hour and increased the price. So we met that new asking price and agreed a new fee of 42m Euros. Yet again as the deal was about to be concluded they pulled out and said the price was now 50m Euros. Checking Portuguese Media I found that this was something Porto had done before, so it was not a surprise to the media. I also discovered that many African players have multi-owners and this also complicates such deals; in this case a Sports Company who had part ownership pulled the deal and asked for more money. They deny this however. NOT OUR FAULT!

Sissoko: This is very disturbing one for me because it seems clear that he and his Agent used Everton to secure a deal to Spurs. We had everything agreed with Newcastle and the player, even had a Private Jet on the runway waiting for him to bring him in for a medical. He didn’t show up and Koeman couldn’t get hold of him on the phone because he had turned it off. If people knew a little more about how Agents (the money men) work then these types of shenanigans will come as no surprise. Personally, I believe Sissoko’s attitude throughout this has shown that we have dodged a bullet and he is not the type of player with the right attitude for our great Club. His reason, he wanted European football. NOT OUR FAULT!

Does knowing all this make me less disappointed? NO, it doesn’t. But, it does allow me to apportion the blame squarely where it needs to be; with Martinez for destroying our reputation. If Kenwright had sacked him at Christmas last season instead of allowing him to make the situation worse we may have been able to salvage something from the season and therefore have been in a better position today to attract the kind of talent we required and wanted.

So I say to all the people fuming and blaming the Board and whoever else at the Club, please reflect somewhat and recognise the type of players we have been targeting, the likes of which we would never have targeted before. We showed our ambition but have sadly been let down by past failures. We will recover from this and learn valuable lessons. What we need to do now is pull together and ensure that we are in a good position fighting for Europe come January and then we may be able to strengthen the squad with the quality players we need and deserve!

Finally, Enner Valencia: When he signed for West Ham in 2014 he took the PL by storm. He was fast and scored some great goals and was entertaining and was an exciting player. Until he was badly injured that is. So let us give this lad a chance because he may prove to be an astute signing! He cannot be any worse than Kone or Niasse can he?

That’s it, my thoughts….

{Ed025's Note - one of the best posts i have read on here stevie, i just hope the moaners can read and understand the complications with modern day transfers which you have pointed out so clearly...respect mate..


3.) 01 Sep 2016 17:32:58
Absolutely brilliant post steviegee. Thing is some moany moany sod will come on here later on and will not bother to read yours or anyone else's post and start complaining about how badly run our club is. Giving out about our 'lack' of transfer activity.

Its very annoying the amount of them posts that are put in.


4.) 02 Sep 2016 07:59:40
Fantastic post that Stevie.
I'd also add that, to be fair to Kenwright re not getting rid of Martinez sooner, when you think how much work must have gone in to the Moshiri deal; it was only finalised end of Feb. I think he had enough on his plate in the first half of the season and bringing in Moshiri and Koeman wipes out the procrastination imho.

If you had 13+billion and the guy that has more say than you has 8+billion and you are willing to put more money in then the other guy and you can't get much say on the board the I can see why we are getting linked with usmanov. Not saying it will happen but you can see why the link is there.

we all would love £50-£60m players but we not that big a deal as of yet. I would also like to tell blues to look at Malaga they was taken over in 2010 signed a lot of top stars they had debts and they was kicked out of Europe they had to sell all their star players and now are a middle of the table side. So splashing cash to make us fans happy while would be great I don't want to run that risk just to say yay we spent ££££ on this player. Chelsea thought they done well getting Torres for £50m he never looked like a £50m player to most.

The thing about premier league loans for our youngsters it shows them that 1 they have a quality already. 2 makes them push to be good enough to come back here and fight for a place next year. 3 most importantly the game to game side of things is a lot different from the under 23s. Good luck to him.
