Well if Koeman goes to Barcelona we know Luis Enrique is available. What a match that was, unbelievable what a team can do when they have passion along with great players.

We do not have players in that class we have a long way to get anywhere near them. There is no proof that he could manage at Everton's level. Just being honest about it.


2.) 09 Mar 2017 19:34:26
Yes they were very good. However, one of those penalties awarded was to say the least totally wrong and the other dubious.


3.) 10 Mar 2017 14:20:24
My post was "tongue in cheek" Milo. I don't expect Koeman to go and would be very surprised if Enrique came to us. Agree about the penalties but regardless of that to score three goals in the final few minutes is pretty remarkable.

Well we got outplayed today by a better team. Having said that I don't understand playing Barry who is slow and past it. Two of Spurs goals were due to defensive errors. We need to recruit defenders in the summer not a past it ex-Evertonian.

Totally agree about Barry, we play too deep and narrow with him on the field and our game slows right down, with better, younger and more mobile players on the bench he should never be starting a game now days. Been brilliant for us but time to move forward.
Bad mistakes made in the game and caught sleeping too often. I like FM but don't see a future for him, can see us bringing in at least 2 CB in the summer.


2.) 05 Mar 2017 18:03:03
Yes I agree and it shows we are still a long way off the top 4 but we are improving I feel.
We need defenders also more forwards to help Rom, Barclay is not a number 10 as he does not score enough, so plenty of work to be done but we are going the right way.


3.) 05 Mar 2017 18:48:57
Have to agree with all the above posts. We are getting nearer to be a good side, last season we would have crumbled, to still be in the game with 10 mins to go show how errors made the difference. barry needs to be a defensive sub when we are leading and seeing game out. Understand the selection without recognized winger.

According to Unsworth, Matthew Pennington gave one of the best displays he has seen from any player at the U21 age against Arsenal. Now Pennington is 22 and I know there is a big step up from U21 to the first team but has anyone seen him play and is he nearly ready?

Only just back after a long injury lay off.


2.) 07 Feb 2017 21:31:09
Yes I know, however when he is fully fit is he good enough for the first team squad?


3.) 07 Feb 2017 23:49:32
He has played first team last season. Didn't do anything wrong in the couple of games he played. Even Koeman wants him fit and pushing the first team, that's how highly he is rated.


4.) 08 Feb 2017 02:13:43
Thanks dentielad, we could do with him in the first team squad. Would like to see him given a chance this season,
Mike.


5.) 09 Feb 2017 00:02:47
Thought he played well at right back when Seamus was out. Pity he got injured himself. So if he plays centre half then he's going to prove very useful.


6.) 09 Feb 2017 00:46:12
Its u23 mike.

If any one doubts that the kids deserve playing after today I give up.

Looks great so far doesn't it! We are one-third towards getting sufficient points to keep us in the Premiership next season.
We are above all of the fancied teams for European places apart from City.
We are above all of the so called second tier teams.
We are way above the group that we usually get associated with like West Ham and Stoke.
Yes we have to keep it up until the January window so we can consolidate by bringing in a few new players to strengthen the squad.
But if we do end up at the end of the year in a strong league position I can't see any player ignoring us, let's face it who would want to play for relegation fodder like West Ham or Stoke?

Maybe someone could explain any way we cannot get into the Europa cup if we finish 7th and all the six teams above us now finish in the tip six? If Leicester win the Champions League they go into the Champions League as the fifth team so nothing changes. If Leicester win the Champions League and United win the Europa then both of those teams and the top three teams go into the Champions league since not more than five teams from the three countries of Spain, Germany and England can enter the Champions league in any one year. That means that the fourth league spot plus the fifth/ sixth and seventh spots get into the Europa providing United stay in any of the top six spots and one of the teams already qualified for Champions League or Europa win the FA cup.
If United win the Europa then they go into the Champions League as the fifth British team and the seventh place is still secure for the Europa League.
The only problem we will have is if United finish 8th or lower and I can't see that happening.

Every player has their price. If a very high offer came in for any of our players and the management thought they could replace that player with a lower cost alternative but equal in talent that would happen providing the player wanted to leave. I suspect some of our first team squad realize that playing on a regular basis is better than sitting on some other team's bench.

Don't get me wrong ed I have nothing but praise for Kenwright he has saved the club more than once and as you say brought in Moshiri but he I still think it would be best for the club for him to give up his managerial duties whatever they are and leave it to professionals and if we don't have the right person to run the club I am sure Moshiri can come up with a suitable one. That does not mean he needs to go, he just needs to be be a major shareholder and enjoy the ride.

{Ed025's Note - i get your drift mike and hopefully a life presidency will be on the cards, i just hope people appreciate the work he has done for the club over the years mate thats all..

Agree ed025, a great day when it gets done and the fat lady sings. Whenever I see quotes like "awaiting Kenwright's signature" I get nervous in case we have a screwup.
I do think that it's about time that we had professionals doing the paperwork and signing off on player contracts.

BlueMike76

{Ed025's Note - i think bill gets a lot of flack that he does not really deserve mike, he lives and breathes this club and also because of his stature hes the first person to blame when the board decide to be frugal, the club is moving forward and that is mainly down to him and his recruitment of moshiri and his stabilization of the club when the going got tough years back, its only my view of course and i know some supporters who want him gone but im certainly not one of them mate..

Well according to reports (as they say) it will be signed this week and is only waiting Kenwright's signature. Could we be seeing a delay?

BlueMike76

{Ed025's Note - no mike, he will sign and it will be a good thing for us whichever way it pans out mate..

I've been watching some of the South American world cup qualifying games. The stadiums have running tracks around them and the supporters are miles from the pitch. Can't let that happen otherwise "New Goodison" will have no character. Can't see how retractable seats would work since the permanent seats would still have to be a long way from the pitch. If Everton is going to pay for the ground then it should be a football stadium and not a joint one.

If they would bring standing back their would be no need to leave Goodison since the capacity is a few short of 78,000 (14th February 1953) . I know since I was one of them. So you can decide your capacity by the percentage of those standing verses those seated. Let's assume that if every one was standing the capacity is 80,000 and if all seated 40,000 then if you eliminate a seat two could stand in there place. So if half stand and half are sitting then the capacity is 60,000. Spend some money on getting Goodison up to fire, health, etc. standards, throw out half the seats, bring back the footy buses and voila it's done.
Obviously will not happen for many obvious reasons but as an old timer I would love to see it happen.

I can't see a future team without Davies either.

Don't see it as hindsight Degsy. It has been pretty obvious even to us unqualified observers that Barry is just too slow especially against a team like Spurs. IMHO a back three was called for with Holgate the obvious choice. Koeman made a mistake and the team suffered for it.
