According to Phil Kirkbride Koeman should be confirmed in 24/ 48 hours compensation and discussing the release of the staff he wants to bring with him is what's holding the deal up.


1.) 05 Jun 2016 13:22:27
I really hope that is right.

According to the Independent at 13.09 his agent is now saying no deal has been struck.

They need to get this sorted out sooner rather than later, the longer this goes on the greater chance we have of being let down and end up with some no-mark in the job. How many of the names we have been linked to would want to join us knowing they were 2nd and even 3rd choice?

2.) 05 Jun 2016 13:40:41
This is going to take time to sort out. The whole deal is complicated, compensation to Southampton, personal package for Koeman and release of staff he wants to bring with him and salaries etc. for those staff. Also I would expect Koeman would want to talk to Moshiri again to confirm plans. A lot of people involved so don't expect this process to be easy or straight forward.

3.) 05 Jun 2016 14:25:33
I should imagine they will want a number of people in place before any news conference is called confirming the deal, that includes in situ. Might be some time yet before we see him or the new management team.
I'd still prefer Lippi.

4.) 05 Jun 2016 16:33:58
In my opinion lippi is not a great choice. I'n his day he was a ridiculously good manager but that day has passed. Even van Gaal admitted that new age football is a whole other world from what he used to do.

On top of that, it's not unusual for managers to take their staff to other clubs. I have faith in moshiri to get this across the line.

going to be pellegrini.

I understand the thinking behind the Tom Davies shouts and I would love him to get some game time but let's just take a step back here the kid is 18 years old and look how our fans treat Ross Barkley who in my book gets treated very unfairly by a lot of blues.

now imagine if Davies was getting the same abuse what would that do to his confidence? it could destroy him now until our fans start backing our young players. I wouldn't want him starting games because well most of our fans would crucify him after a few bad passes.


1.) 16 Dec 2016 11:44:35
Whatever happens to Tom Davies and other young players, it's inevitable that some fans will approve, others will disapprove, and many will chop and change their opinions depending on outcomes. Like most fans, I too have an opinion - and I also thoroughly enjoy the banter with fans that have other points of view - but I generally come to the conclusion that things will work themselves out and talent and hard work will usually earn opportunity and success for players.

2.) 16 Dec 2016 13:10:43
He is getting the odd run out to help the step up from the U23 but when RK thinks he's ready to progress its more likely he will go out on loan for more game time.
if you look at what level of expectation we have to succeed at this club it is more likely the first team will be bolstered by more experienced and better players in January.

3.) 16 Dec 2016 13:40:13
Well this is a banter site so also will give my opinion. Davies has shown he is much better than the existing midfielders so regardless of age he should be playing. I have watched the Arsenal game three times now and the big difference between that game and the previous eight or so is that Baines and Coleman were constantly attacking and that is one reason why we won the game. The fact that Barry was not playing is significant to me, he is just too slow these days. In todays game you need players who are fast, who can move from attack and cover in defense. The team that played against Arsenal managed to do that reasonably well. Hopefully the team will remain the same against Liverpool with Holgate replacing Jags (who is suspended) for the reason I have just stated.

4.) 16 Dec 2016 19:43:48
For me mike the difference was not the full backs but the fact our players pressed the ball higher up the pitch. This allowed the full backs to press further up also.

Davies is too young to have a run in the team. So too Holgate. Work them in over time. Not over work them.

5.) 16 Dec 2016 20:26:06
Hi John, The point I was making was when the full-backs attacked other players had the pace to defend when required. In the recent past we just have not done that so Coleman and Baines have been stuck in a defensive position most of the game. If you are good enough you can play as Rooney showed. I am not suggesting they play every game but for goodness sake Davies has to be a better option than Cleverley.

6.) 17 Dec 2016 07:51:13
I wouldn't argue on the Cleverly suggestion at all. I think there is a fear though that playing these young players at the moment can put huge stress on them especially from our crowd who haven't been the most supportive of late.

I'm sure they will get their chance over the next couple of seasons and hopefully we will be in a better mood. :)

{Ed025's Note - its really hard for youngsters to break through john, managers want the finished article without taking chances that may make them look foolish and put their credentials at risk, thats why loaning them is a very popular solution as it takes the risk out of things and if they do well they can be recalled and everything in the garden is rosy mate..

Do Everton fans actually believe the Draxler Rumours! he is surely looking at a champions league club?


1.) 04 Aug 2016 18:58:32
He's going to arsesmell . His club/ agent just trying to up the price.

2.) 04 Aug 2016 19:35:51
Wolfsburg have said he won't be leaving until 2017. Not that I believed it anyway.



04 Aug 2016 10:47:20
Anyone else annoyed at Jake Humphrys talking crap last night he must of watched a different game granted due to work I only seen the second half but I thought we played ok we created the better chances and looked good defensively yet he says UTD will have a great season and we will have a long hard slog. I did enjoy Hargreaves and Ferdinand shooting him down though but does anybody else feel Sky and BT have a dislike of us?


1.) 04 Aug 2016 13:08:37
Last nights game was certainly " a game of 2 halves " In the first half I hate saying this but Manchester United did look like a top 3 side. Both teams played their hearts out and Utd tried everything to score. Our defense was actually impressive for something that can be classed as "work in progress". In fact I would go as far as saying we looked better at the back than Utd did.

I think he means by " a long hard slog " is that we are not yet a complete team, this showed a few times last night, but saying that I feel our defense has come on leaps and bounds since the Belgium manager left, although we still need a lot of work. If we have no more signings, and if our play does not improve then yes it will be a hard slog, but I think we will get other players in and we will get our act together.

2.) 04 Aug 2016 14:26:38
Have to agree defensively we looked solid, however, going forward it was not good. RK needs to find the right blend in midfield and upfront. On last nights performance I hope he starts Saturdays match with Davies and Gibson in CM with Kev and Delboy supporting Rom. If we go back to a Back 4 then he can add an extra MF not sure Ross should be picked, maybe give one of the other lads a chance. We definitely need another striker though as Kone IOM is just not good enough anymore.

3.) 04 Aug 2016 15:02:51
The two main things I noticed with Ross last night was

1) Match fitness, he was no where near as fit as he should be if he wants to give us 100%

2) His hunger, To me it just seemed to be lacking at times, now this may have something to do with his fitness or it may be the left overs from RM. Whatever the reason he desperately needs to get it back again, he is too young a player and still has great potential he just needs to address his desire. I am sure RK will work it out and get him back to the same Ross we all loved and talked positively about.

4.) 04 Aug 2016 16:25:18
Granted I missed the first half. I wasn't impressed with Stones but thought Holgate looked to have real potential regarding Jake Humphrys when Hargreaves disagreed with him he looked shocked as he thought they would agree I personally think we will have a good season and can't wait to ram it down his throat at Goodison.



03 Aug 2016 15:41:09
Here's my look at Lukaku and Stones. not once has our club come out and said we are selling them. I have heard Chelsea have not once bid for Lukaku and it's the media trying to sell our players. Jim White from sky tweeted that Costa is staying at Chelsea so why would they then bid 68 million for Lukaku when they have 4 strikers?

now to Stones; Pep said he is interested but doesn't know if it's possible now neither club have confirmed any bid have been made and it's once again the press running the stories to unsettle our players (mostly the Daily Mirror). I'm not saying they won't go but as it stands I expect Lukaku to stay and as each day goes by I also expect to Stones to stay.

how do others see it?


1.) 04 Aug 2016 06:41:57
I think that you're correct about the press influences. But there probably have been bids for both. It's just that the clubs are very private.

Chelsea last year were nothing but crass the way they touted Stones as a Chelsea player designate. And that only strengthened our resolve not to sell. I think this year with Lukaku they have adopted a more respectful approach in order to get their man.

As for City, they have indeed declared their interest and are by no means presuming that a deal will be done.

We are being shown more respect by clubs wanting our players now because I believe they have had their fingers burned in the past. We just need the ignorant media to join the party. They're a bit slow on the uptake on that one.

2.) 04 Aug 2016 07:13:02
See Lukaku response last night when he heard Bobby was his international manager 😅 it was phenomenal.

3.) 04 Aug 2016 09:40:41
I think roberto will do well in international football. It is a lot slower than the premier league, which will suit his style.



28 Jul 2016 10:59:43
I'm slightly concerned by our lack of movement in the transfer market with just over 2 weeks til the premiership starts we still have not bought anybody of note we still need a top class keeper a replacement for John Stones who will regret leaving us CM as I don't think he rates Barry and a Striker to put pressure on Lukaku instead it seems players are using us to get better contracts at there current clubs or using us to make it known they want to leave there current club.

I know we have a good squad with good youngsters coming through but we need to show we need business and 1 more thing when is the work starting on Goodison I drive past the old lady everyday and all they have done so far is remove the badge by the park end.

the only reason his agent called talksport is because the same station this morning where going on about how talks had stalled between Rom and the club. I have searched for this story and it seems it's just talksport once again trying to sell our players even after the agent said he was staying Danny the kopite Murphy was going on how we are not big enough for him and he will leave when one of the so called big boys come in for him. jesus makes my blood boil the way these guys can just make stories up and from now on talksport have lost me as a listener.

unfortunately we have some fans who can't wait for him to make a mistake which is really sad we need to support him as Ross is a confidence player.

I'm not sure what fans would expect as a statement of intent. I'm very happy with where we are heading, got a young talent in got a proven mid in. I would keep robles as 10 clean sheets in 21 games is a superb stat.

we have a decent defence with Holgate coming through so let's see where that goes and we have young Davies coming through in mid along with gueye back next month and macarthy back from injury we should be fine. we have lots of wingers so that's fine.

the only position he looks like wanting to strengthen is up front, if he does, great, if not I will support Valencia. it's looking good the key work now is consistency.

the only thing I don't agree with is, you say Lukaku will leave and we will command 100 million as he is scoring 20+ for a struggling side. first we would struggle to get 60 million so 100 million is dream land, 2nd we are no longer a struggling side.

we are a team moving up 7th in the premiership is probably 3rd in la liga by comparison and we really need to lose this mentality that our better players are going to leave us. as his agent said we are a different beast now. do you remember when Lukaku first signed up with this clown, he said he would never of signed for us if he was his agent.

now since moshiri came in he has done a complete u turn and wants lukaku to sign a new deal which benefits both sides and guarantees top dollar for lukaku ie wages and us a transfer fee.

the difference being we will hold the all the cards and will only accept a bid if it suits us. I don't think lukaku is now pushing to leave and willing to wait 2 seasons (including this one) to see if we can challenge.

so all I'm saying is our club is now run like a top premiership club (with some changes still needed). so it's time for us fans to behave the same. if lukaku comes out and says he wants to go goodbye and good luck, but unless he puts a transfer request in, he is staying anyway. come on you mighty blues.
