Any eds know of any interest in any of our players just wondering as brands wants to trim the sqaud.

{Ed002's Note - In addition to Robles etc. who have been releases, there is interest from Ademola Lookman from Southampton (won't happen), RBL, Spartak Moscow, Crystal Palace and Arsenal. Ashley Williams and Luke Garbutt should be looking very hard for a new club. Everton want the Wayne Rooney situation resolved but it is causing a major financial issue as it hurts the wage budget badly (as Everton will pay something approaching $75k per week towards his wages). Fenerbahce want Yannick Bolasie on a loan with an option to buy deal.) Besiktas want Davy Klaassen on loan. Kevin Mirallas' agent will look for a deal with Galatasaray, Standard Liege or possibly somewhere in Asia, but it is up in the air right now. Sandro Ramirez will return to Everton if Sevilla get the striker they want - else, maybe another loan there.}

1.) 18 Jun 2018 10:56:28
Cheers ED02 wow didn't realise we would have to pay 75k p/ w towards Rooneys wages.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect that is what still needs to be resolved - but right now it is a figure somewhere near $75k. And don't forget, Everton are still paying for two managers' wages who are not at the club.}

2.) 18 Jun 2018 12:07:45
I know ED02 unbelievable isn't it we have made some very costly mistakes hopefully Moshiri will of learnt a thing or two and will be taking advice of the right people whoever they may be.

{Ed002's Note - That is my fear in opting for Silva who has had five jobs in four years or whatever it is. I am far from convinced this was the best choice - we will see later in the season. Brands is a good choice and fixes a very large part of the problem so that will help tremendously.}

3.) 18 Jun 2018 12:23:56
Yes ED02 I think Brands is a fantastic appointment and I like the way he wants to be involved from every level something going from reports Walsh didn't do.

4.) 18 Jun 2018 12:59:38
So Ed002. With your knowledge of Brands and his obvious experience in the role of DoF, do you think that his involvement in the Silva signing is surprising or even risky by his standards?

{Ed002's Note - There has to be a risk.}

5.) 19 Jun 2018 07:16:37
Awesome knowledge Ed02.



14 Jun 2018 11:48:02
Any truth we have joined the race for Diop who west ham are after.

{Ed002's Note - At this time I am not aware of Everton making any approach and right now West Ham are looking to agree a price with Toulouse and will likely need to bite the bullet and pay the asking price. Fulham and Marseille did not see the value in the player and whilst RBL are interested he is not their first choice. My understanding remains that Everton are still looking for a CB and with Konsa off the table and interest seeminingly drifting for Lascelles it is Ben Gibson they have the hots for right now. So if Everton are keen, and it doesn't seem unreasonable, they would need to move quickly - like today quickly.}

1.) 14 Jun 2018 12:11:31
Cheers ED02 why would they have to make a move today reg Gibson are other teams interested.

{Ed002's Note - I was talking about Diop.}

2.) 14 Jun 2018 12:21:11
Cheers ed02 can't see us doing anything today reg Diop looks like west ham could have themselves a quality young player there.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 22:46:41
Thanks for the insight ed mate, great to have you back. Is it all just interest at the minute, doesn't seem like much is going on. Do you think they're won't be incomings until after the World Cup now it's started?

4.) 14 Jun 2018 23:15:44
yes, we are interested in Gibson.



11 Jun 2018 15:41:20
Sky sports news reporting we will start bidding for Maddison later this week are we waiting for Rooney's transfer to be completed before we can buy seem strange why we don't bid now.

1.) 11 Jun 2018 16:00:56
because SSN are making it up as they go along.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 16:35:18
Ha ha in all fairness Alan Myers has tweeted as well and he is as relient as they come.

3.) 11 Jun 2018 16:38:26
this time they're not. Both correct re Maddison and Rooney.



10 Jun 2018 19:42:40
Ironmike has posted that we are in talks with Ben Gibson i will be very happy if we bring him in.



10 Jun 2018 11:37:50
Linked with Rashford as well.

1.) 10 Jun 2018 13:07:26
What's the source, Bluey?

I must be a masochist, I love this maddening time of the year.

2.) 10 Jun 2018 14:18:24
What a catch Rashford would be mate.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 16:22:14
Rashford would be an absolute dream with Silva allowing him to play in a way Mourinho never would. Having said that I fear a dream is all it'll ever be.

4.) 10 Jun 2018 17:04:26
yes there is intetest in Rashford. loan only though.

5.) 10 Jun 2018 17:47:30
Do for me Lance mate.

6.) 10 Jun 2018 19:09:10
Sorry big DFS been in work all day then chilling in the garden with the kids just seen it on news now and can see a few other people have seen it as well I think he would be a qaulity signing.

Ironmike has just put on that sporting are seeking legal advice reg wolves signing their keeper I'm glad we stepped back from Carvalhio as I think this is going to get really messy can any eds shed any light on how wolves signed him as I would think sporting would still own his registration.

{Ed001's Note - they haven't signed him. They have agreed terms with the player but no signing is done until registration is transferred.}

1.) 10 Jul 2018 12:20:26
Cheers ED01 I thought I thought he had signed it's going to get very messy all this.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, incredibly messy. They have taken a big risk but they needed a keeper and he is a quality one, so it is probably worthwhile as they could agree a deal with Sporting still.}

2.) 10 Jul 2018 12:56:11
Think they went about it the wrong way they should of struck a deal with sporting first imo now it looks like getting very messy which won't help anyone.



22 Jun 2018 08:24:32
Question for anybody really who are the two manager's we are still paying.

{Ed002's Note - Allardyce and Koeman.}

1.) 22 Jun 2018 10:01:29
Even though Koeman is working for the Dutch FA we are still paying most of the wages he was getting with us. Talk about having your pants pulled down.

{Ed002's Note - About 80% of what Everton were paying him as a manager.}

2.) 22 Jun 2018 10:32:32
It’s a bit embarrassing to be honest Ed002. Especially as his current employers are taking full advantage of it. Hopefully with the new set up, deals like this will be a thing of the past.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 12:27:21
Cheers ED02 we have made some massive mistakes us.



20 Jun 2018 08:41:32
Question for the EDs now as we have been linked in the press with Carvalhio how does it work as I thought after having a conversation with ED02 that there will still be a fee to be payed or court battle as sporting still own the registration of the player now with wolves signing their keeper on a free how will that effect things.

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to Wolves. If Everton want to sign Carvalho they will need to agree a fee with Spoting or accept a tribunal decision.}

1.) 20 Jun 2018 09:14:43
Which is how I thought it was ED02 cheers can I ask why it's different for wolves as I thought the keeper was one of the players who terminated his contract.

{Ed002's Note - It is not different for Wolves.}

2.) 20 Jun 2018 10:27:24
So ED02 what do you think sporting next step will be as I think it's very harsh on the club to be losing so many high valued players do you expect it to be sorted by FIFA or end up in court.

{Ed002's Note - Sporting may well sue the players for any difference in value between any fees set by tribunal and an arbitary value set as part of their contractual obligations in Iberia.}

3.) 20 Jun 2018 10:44:15
ED02 To me we should stay well clear of any of their players as I can see this getting very messy indeed we are already dealing with the aftermath of Silva so it makes sense to stay clear.

{Ed002's Note - As I have previously said, I don't think Carvalho would suit the Premier League and I am not aware of any approach from Everton. There has been one side showing an interest for some months and they intend to try and move ahead with the transfer in coming weeks. So perhaps the best footballing solution for Everton regardless.}

4.) 20 Jun 2018 13:30:13
Fingers crossed ED02 i have always been a fan of his but the premiership is a different beast if there wasn't so much baggage I would like to try and get him but as I said we should stay well clear.

5.) 20 Jun 2018 15:16:15
Aren't there question marks about his mobility for the premiership?
Having seen him in 2 games this world cup And the Euros, I haven't seen anything that would quash those fears.



19 Jun 2018 23:20:27
Ironmike on the West Ham Rumours site has posted that inter Milan are looking at Carvalhio.

1.) 20 Jun 2018 06:38:20
Good, let’s hope they get him!



18 Jun 2018 09:26:18
I'm guessing we will find out if we are actually interested in Maddison by the end of today as with two clubs having bids accepted this one will be sorted out pretty quickly.

1.) 18 Jun 2018 10:57:39
doesnt look like we seriously were he's about to sign for Leicester.

2.) 18 Jun 2018 12:10:34
Yeah from what I have read he is a very good player but plays in the no10 role maybe we were waiting to see what was happening with Klasson and Leicester and Southampton came in for him at the right time good luck to the kid.

{Ed002's Note - Maddison will not be moving to Everton; it will be Leicester. For reasons I never understood, numerous Liverpool fans would argue with me that they had aready agreed the move for him a couple of months ago.}

3.) 18 Jun 2018 13:06:45
Maddison is an absolute gem which we've allowed to slip through our fingers!
Of a similar age but better player than Davies and Barkley before him. Why would we even consider Wiltshire when we could have signed a younger and better player?
And signing the German left back, after his performance on Friday, would be a big mistake. He wen't AWOL in his defensive duties and was continually caught out of position on the break.

{Ed025's Note - i like maddison fancy but at £22m its a bit steep imo, but its not my money of course..

4.) 18 Jun 2018 13:29:00
Maddison not coming to us isn't a huge deal. We have Dowell and Antony Evans who could do same job. Maybe management have decided to give them a chance to shine, thus saving 22 million or maybe someone else is in the frame.

5.) 18 Jun 2018 13:44:07
Also don't judge a player by one game.

6.) 18 Jun 2018 15:04:01
I always love this part of the year.
Some of us go insane and lose the plot big time.

Getting upset about a rumoured target that's rumoured to be going somewhere else.
He may never have been a real target so don't have an aneurysm.

Which is fair enough ED02 there are so many names being linked with us it's hard what to believe.
have you any updates regarding players meeting with Silva and brands since they came back into training regarding their futures.

{Ed002's Note - I would not know about players talking about their futures at Everton - the coach will talk to all players individually - the Director of Football would talk to them as a group.}

I'm not suggesting brands would make an illegal approach ED02 I'm just saying if an offer was acceptable by Barcelona would that then not be brands job to persuade him to join us and the story came from the Liverpool echo.

{Ed002's Note - But I am not aware of any approach from Everton at this time. There is every chance the player will turn down the club that reached agreement with Barcelona, but I suspect he will be looking for a loan that gives him Champions League football.}

ED02 can I ask why we shouldn't hold our breath isn't this where brands comes in to sell the club to the player and if he chooses another club after that than fair enough but we have to at least try and see if we can buy him.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Everton to his club and if Brands were to approach the player directly that would be illegal. Another side have already spoken with the player about his loan. I am not sure who has suggested this has happened.

As I explained earlier, Brands has been in London today.}

no ed your embarrassing and you do not like it when somebody disagrees with you we sold Lukaku and Barkley Barkley cost us nothing and Lukaku cost us 28 million and we sold them both at a massive profit which helps towards wages FFP as we have increased revenue by trading players I have not said once we can spend what we like in the original post i said we still need to be careful you only see what you want to see and you can't back down now because that would prove your incorrect I don't have to show figures because we all know we made a massive profit on those players and I was not just refering to this season I used them as an example.

{Ed002's Note - Complete and utter bull. You don't understand at all. And as far as you are concerned the club is now guilty of false accounting as well you really are a glifnard of the first order. You are wasting your time but certainly I will not provide the Everton supporters with answers to anything other than pure transfer related information.}

WorcesterEFC no not at all but I even put a piece from the financial fair play website to show what I was saying is correct but after your last post you clearly have a issue with me so I will leave you alone

Grumpy all I said was by selling Lukaku and Barkley at a massive profit helps keep us within wages financial guidelines but that it didn't give us freedom to pay whatever we wanted so with that ed and a few fans decided to start having a go with a certain ED calling me names I even asked the ed to go have a listen and give me his thoughts yet again he called me names if I believe something to be correct I won't just agree with him for the sake of it.

{Ed002's Note - You are whining and bitching but have yet to explain in any way or form about what this "increased revenue" from "player trading" is - how much increased revenue did Everton get? Let's see some numbers and not just this really embarrassing bitching.}

try reading it back ed I said it helps towards wages FFP not let's us do what we want selling Barkley and Lukaku at high profits helps towards keeping us in wages ffp guidelines and it was you who got insulting with me as you have called me quite a few names now l. I was having a discussion with you about it and I haven't said I know everything about it but by reading up and listening to other people yourself included I try to learn about it you seem to take it personally when someone disagrees with you but can't admit that maybe someone else knows a little bit about these things as well.

{Ed002's Note - It was nonsense, complete and utter nonsense. You have no grasp at all about it - none whatsoever. But as you think I know nothing I will accept that and you can deal with all of those questions from now. You might want to inform the club who by your recknoning have also misled UEFA with their annual accounting for FFP - as they reported something entirely different. I am sure they will be pleased with what you have to say.

And yet again you have failed to tell me what this "inreased revenue" was for "player trading" last season. The club have decalred their figure - let's compare it to the one you and your little friend have come up with.}

21 Jul 2018 13:57:50
your saying I don't understand but it clearly states there that player trading plays a part in wages ffp and nobody mentioned Pogba (not sure what that is all about) I will leave it now as you don't like it when someone disagrees with you even when they show evidence that backs it up have a nice weekend ed.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry Lukaku - not Pogba. You original comment was dribbling about how this guy had told you that Lukaku's sale allowed Everton to spend what they want on wages. You then made accusations about my lack of knowledge. So, tell me about all of the "increased revenue" from "player trading" Everton had last season that allows Everton to do this?

The bottom line is more likely you simply not understanding any of this at all, or your invisible friend is just teasing you as a gullible football fan - or perhaps he is also as dumb as a box of rocks.}

Hi Ed02 I have taken this from the financial fair play website it definitely says player trading

Premier League update their FFP rules

Posted by Ed Thompson on Monday, April 25, 2016

Premier League clubs have voted to continue their Short Term Cost Control (STCC) rules; updated rules will come into effect from next season (2016/ 17) and will apply for three-year duration of the next TV deal.  The STCC rules first came in three years ago and are designed to help ensure sustainability of the top-flight clubs by ensuring that clubs don't spend the TV deal on hugely increased wages.

Clubs will be able to increase their wage spend by £7m each season from 2016/ 17 to 2018/ 19 (an increase from the £4m a season during the current TV deal) . Clubs can exceed this £7m cap if they generate increased revenue from commercial income, player trading and Match Day income. The Premier League rules are explained here - however they are a little complicated and this diagram should help explain how the rules will work for next season:

{Ed002's Note - I am going to stop providing anything useful to the Everton supporters as you are becoming a real nuisance and simply sharing your lack of knowledge of this matter. Would you like to share with us all the "increased revenue" from "player trading" Everton had last season?

I truly recommend that you step away from something you clearly don't understand, and nor will you ever. But as you have said, I know nothing and could learn from this bozo who has told you the sale of Pogba allows Everton to spend what they want on wages.}
