Ed02, all gone quiet about Monchi, you heard any new info on the grape vine?

Are we still interested and have we made any contact with club and his representives?

As always thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Everton are still interested whilst I understand the interest of Real Madrid has waned a little. However, PSG are also still looking to him and that might make any agreement with Everton very difficult.}

It was only a matter of time till Moyes started blowing his trumpet in the press.


1.) 14 May 2016 14:51:32
He's also talking about himself in the third person now.

2.) 14 May 2016 17:12:16
He already has, and thanks for 11 years great service Dave but you moved on and the club moved on, time for a fresh face!



08 May 2016 11:08:15
Reports that Frank de Boer's agent Guido Albers, said that the Ajax coach would love to coach a club like Everton.

I imagine that agents sound out clubs for mangers like they do players, let's hope Everton still have some appeal after recent displays.


1.) 08 May 2016 12:35:04
That is a no brainer. I'm yet to see anyone disagree with the appointment FDB, should that happen. It's almost a come and get me plea! Fingers crossed 🙏🏼.

2.) 08 May 2016 14:12:02
Everyone but the board of Everton apparently, apparently because they must know the deep deep discontent with the state of affairs but not a word. This goes beyond those that say 'oh but this is the Everton way'. It shows a level of disrespect and don't give a damn about the Clubs supporters that quite frankly is beyond belief. I am one of those that is staying away from the Norwich game, I hope though that those discontents that do go, show a bit of class, remember the players and staff will have their families with them.

3.) 08 May 2016 14:22:37
He could bring Jaap Stam with him to sort our defence out and Bergkamp as his assistant, dream line up.

Also his Wikipedia page says his current team is Everton so obviously it's going to happen.

{Ed025's Note - it must be true then j, if wikipedia says so.. :)

4.) 08 May 2016 14:30:38
That's a fantastic group of coaching talent there Jtheblue.

5.) 08 May 2016 14:40:53
If this Club has any ambition whatsoever then it has to pull the stops out and go for De Boer and his staff.

Imagine the effect their presence would have on all levels of player at this club.

There no needs to be a dramatic change.

6.) 08 May 2016 15:00:42
I couldn't agree any more Lance.

7.) 08 May 2016 16:48:07
I'm in if that's a possibility! Good manager and if e did bring his backroom staff, even better! Surely he wouldn't want to come to work with Jones?

8.) 08 May 2016 17:33:10
Now wouldn't that be amazing, the defence would be sorted out for sure and we might be able to hold on to some players.
Also, I can't see FDB's agent saying things like that without FDB's permission.
That's if he did say it.

9.) 08 May 2016 20:11:15
Are we talking about showing respect to the same players who are showing no respect, no fight and no loyalty to the shirt that most of us would give our right arm to wear just once?

Whilst RM may be the cause of this there is hardly one of them who deserves their wages over the past few months. Whatever is going on behind the scenes, we can all suffer from discontent at work, but when you are getting paid like they do I expect effort at the very least.
THEN they will get respect.

{Ed025's Note - im with you totally dave..

10.) 08 May 2016 20:25:49
Let's be honest the Dutch league is very weak and Ajax don't do much in Europe. Let's get Aberdeen's manager to declare interest and see how excited we get!

11.) 08 May 2016 20:40:52
Dave 1878 bang on pal.

12.) 08 May 2016 23:21:03
I am with you kingpin. Fdb is unproven and will be a gamble. If i was bk i would make raffa bennitez my no 1 target. Proven winner.

13.) 09 May 2016 02:49:22
Pedromez you aren't hearing anything because EFC are behaving professionaly. Martinez won't be sacked or let go til the end of the season, that is the decent and professional thing to do. Announcing this before hand serves no purpose except embarrassing Martinez which he does not deserve. We are not Man City.

14.) 09 May 2016 06:06:35
What are you on about? I've not said anything whatsoever about not hearing anything from the board and if you read my other posts, I'm an advocate of the way the board conduct themselves etc etc.

15.) 09 May 2016 17:23:10
Being succesfull at Ajax is like doing well at Celtic or going back Walter Smith at Everton. We on paper could go down next season on form therefore we need a hard nosed manager who can build a club from the bottom
RM has wrecked Everton even with the decent foundations left by Moyes.
De Boer took over an already top club in a second rate league he would be a big gamble.

Guys, when we look at what we have already have at the club it’s not that bad, there is a lot of players over looked and youth players needing to move up or move on, some of the younger players we are shouting to keep so there fore don’t that mean that these should be used off the bench? As I see it if we trim down as is needed where do we really need to strengthen?
We all know defence is a must but out side of a gk, cb and lb needed we have

Pickford and stek (need another to push Pickford but be better then Han stek)

RB - Coleman and Kenny (Holgate back up)
CB - Holgate and Keane, Jags but should really be a back up back to the back up haha (need more in this position)
LB - Baines (need another to push and take over this season)
MF - Snids (if he buys in and shows past form, if not sell and replace) Gana, Davies, Siggy, McArthy (still to come back) and then the people we expect to step up Dowell, Baningime,

Forward line - Walcott, Vlasic, Lookman, Tosun, Sandro (we all hope he got more) and DCL

That’s quite a big squad still without any additions and I’m sure the most of us see all these as being part of the team. We must remember we have only domestic cups etc to worry about and we still have to keep everyone happy, any one add to that or change much?


1.) 09 Jul 2018 22:59:03
It is a big squad but I do think we need more if we’re going to improve on last season and close the gap. We do have some decent youngsters but it’s unrealistic to expect them to perform to a high level every week. We need two or three proven, quality players. And we need to get rid of or loan a few more out. Williams, Martina and Mirallas at the very least.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 07:27:04
I'm trying my best to be patient and leave it with Silva and Brands to get it right. They've got a big job on their hands and they will need time to sort it all out.

That said, the sooner they bring some in that they truly want and we see some new faces the happier I will be. We seem to be linked with everyone (even Liverpool goalkeepers - nah only joking) but with no substance behind any of the rumours. Let's get some in and start integrating them into the team as we need team members not additions to the squad.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 08:25:09
So Be Styrne, we only need to trim the squad, get a better back up keeper for Pickford, need more center backs (how many do you suggest? 2 should do it? ) , another left back as cover for Baines, monitor Shneids and replace if not up to it. That all sounds very simple and I get what you are saying. But that also does not deal with the defficiencies of lack of left sided players nor the age of Baines and Jags. Jags will be 36 this season. He was never the quickest player anyway. Yet he ended up being our 1st choice center back before the kids. I do get what you are saying in that within the squad there are some very good players. I get that. But the squad overall is very unbalanced. Look at what happened when Coleman, Baines and Jags got injured last season. Also look at Baines how he hardly ever gets down the line now to whip in a cross. I do get what you are saying about having some very good players, but no left sided midfielder? Ageing defence in 2 key positions. make that 3 with Williams! Yes we have good players, but too many in certain positions and none to top premiership standard in others. And just far too many high earners who were given contracts when really they should have been either moved on and replaced or at least now be the back up players you are talking about. I can confidently predict that if we start with Jags and Baines as 1st team regulars, they will start to pick up niggling injuries and then miss games. That's what happens to 30 odd year olds unless they are very very lucky. So in my opinion we need immediate replacements for them. Especially as Williams (Jags back up? ) is also past it. I accept that Kenny might be ready for back up to Coleman (may be) or even Holgate? But no left midfielder too? The summary of what I am saying is that even if I use your list of players needed, we need about 5 players. that's half the outfield team.

4.) 10 Jul 2018 08:25:10
Thing is Williams, Martina and Mirallas (still think he has something to offer by the way) , are all probably on good wages that apart from Mirallas they would not get anywhere else and even then if anyone wanted them (Williams and Martina) , a quandry of our own making I fear.

5.) 10 Jul 2018 08:53:48
Even if we pay some of their wages, we’d still recoup a fee and reduce our wage bill significantly which would allow us to move for for other players. If the three players are unlikely to play and earn 200k between them, we may as well pay half and have 100k wages for one top player who will play.

6.) 10 Jul 2018 11:13:48
That’s why I left them out blue, I only included who I would keep. The youngsters would be more from the bench than starting, there are also players that where hardly used so would be more like new signings. Where, except defence which I did highlight would you add without pushing others noses out and causing a rift like the Lookman one we find ourselves in now?

When you look at our midfield there you have to remember they will be fighting for 3 starting places as will the forwards.

I left out I would like another that could play right across the forward line, a fast forward/ winger.

So keeping all the above, let’s say we add, GK, CB, LB, F/ W and maybe a MF that’s a squad of 25/ 26 if we dump the rest, would we be happy with that?

7.) 10 Jul 2018 11:21:51
Wow degsy, you really got it in for jags and Baines. I did point out they needed replacing, and what I’m asking is there anyone in the list people don’t want to see or want out. We all know realistically we will be lucky to see 4 new additions with squad trimming. you point out the obvious on the lack of balance, even the management have pointed that out. I’m looking at what we have now and that list of people I’m happy to keep and see what they have got this season, that gives us 21 players that I’m happy to keep, with brands talking about a squad of 25 that gives us 4 or 5 places available if we manage to trim the squad. It’s obvious if we don’t move on in some positions then it’s likely we won’t recruit in them same places, let’s hope we can put on a player sale to the 3 clubs promoted.

8.) 10 Jul 2018 11:59:51
BeStyrne I'm totally with you. We had enough personal and quality last season for 8th and 7th the season before.

We need to trim the squad and bring a couple in but it's not the panic stations some are saying.

The most important part of this summer is to properly assess who fits into the new way of playing and the ones who don't. Only then can you truly start building a team to compete.

What you don't do is just buy players because they are over 30. They still have a role to play and age never determines who gets injured. Yanick, Mori, Coleman and McCarthy have all had worse injuries than Baines, Williams and Jags so there is no God rule to say age is the cause.

Lucky we seem to have people in charge now that have a clear plan to improve the squad and have not jumped in with both feet. The speculation on players is just that at the moment.

As for left sided midfielders at the moment we have Lookman, Vlasic, Yanick, Walcott and Mirallas who can all play there.

In every area we have enough players. I agree we could do with a couple of players in areas but only when we reduce the current people in those areas.

Let's all have a bit of patience and see what happens.

9.) 10 Jul 2018 21:23:06
Degsy I thumbed you as promised - any chance you could reduce the word count on your posts. I didn’t even read it as only had 20 minute break.

Are Everton are showing any interest in Alfie Mawson?


1.) 15 Jun 2018 22:53:26
Off to west ham I think buddy.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 01:45:35
Rather have the french kid Diop, 6.5" built like a brick, shed.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 11:41:25
I'd have Jonathon Tar from Leverkrusen if we had any chance of signing him, probably bigger fish after his signature.



16 May 2018 22:43:52
This is all playing out like one of the godfather trilogy films. Makes me believe that the manager is picked and ready to be announced.


1.) 17 May 2018 02:35:29
He has mate.

2.) 17 May 2018 06:38:17
Does that mean that Bill will be going on a little boat to do some fishing?



16 May 2018 15:10:22
Would like to take a small time out to remember our friend on here Mr Grumpytoffee, I know he will be sitting on the edge of his cloud eating some humble pie and gutted he can not join in with the speculation and discussions regarding managers and next season.

To Grumpy 🍺.


1.) 16 May 2018 15:39:07
Well said.

2.) 16 May 2018 16:35:18
With you all the way I loved the Guy, he will be made up where our Club is going now, we all miss you mate.

3.) 16 May 2018 17:46:07
RIP Grumpster.



13 Apr 2018 13:12:49
Tear in me eye hearing about grumpytoffee.

But then smiled imagining his debates with Howard Kendell over Fat Sam.

Rest in Peace grumpy.


1.) 13 Apr 2018 17:05:36
Only just seen these threads, been away. Can't believe it.
Really sad news, RIP Grumpy mate.

2.) 13 Apr 2018 17:55:57
RIP Grumpy, sad mate.

3.) 13 Apr 2018 21:56:11
WTF do I take the mick out of now. Yes it happens and I am not a religous person but sometimes you have to wonder what it is all about. Condolences seem insincere from those of us that are anonymous to Grumpy's family but believe me they are meant. I for one am now going to take a break from this board. Perspective.

We need the equaliser for when we go a goal down.

Would like to see DCL be a bit more selfish in front of goal, when he was throughout he should of drilled it at the goal. That’s where lukaku gets his success, selfishness in front of goal.

He only returned to training about 3 days ago wasn’t it?
We have been going off the media reports, we interested, they interested, Mina wants this and that move. Maybe we always been in poll position, maybe we been the only ones showing real interest, maybe we only got to speak to the player himself the other day?
Think it’s a bit premature to question his loyalty to the cause.

It’s not always about making profit for these multi billionaires though smit, sometimes they just want to leave a mark or have an expensive toy. No one will know what he does until he does it now, would be great for us if he does decide to join his pal.
