SSN Reporting Kroneke bids to buy Arsenal - will this lead to Usmanov becoming a blue?


1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:39:34
Arsenal fans association that own a percentage of the club are screwing that if the sales goes through which has a deadline of mid day on Thursday I believe, they will be forced to sell their shares in the club to follow PL rules.

Rockford to be offered improved contract fingers crossed don't mess it up.


1.) 30 Jul 2018 13:23:31
Why are we offering a private detective an improved contract.
Rooney has left hasn't he.

2.) 30 Jul 2018 13:22:38
James Garner making a come back then is he?

3.) 30 Jul 2018 13:41:32
Rockford is code for one of the Eds with the work they do. Should have been Pickford but modern technology thinks better of it.

4.) 30 Jul 2018 13:43:18
Is that James Cookie mate.

5.) 30 Jul 2018 13:49:53
That’s a blast from the past Smit 😂.

6.) 30 Jul 2018 14:10:04
We also lining up petrocelli, banacek and Perry mason. Cracking defensive line up.

7.) 30 Jul 2018 14:17:03
Did Petrocelli ever finish building that house?

8.) 30 Jul 2018 14:17:44
I've heard our next signing is magnum or starsky and hutch.

9.) 30 Jul 2018 14:25:46
We've the speed we've got in the team I don't suggest signing anyone that makes others jealous. Think Matlock might be the boy to shore up our defence.

10.) 30 Jul 2018 14:31:49
2 new CBs Cagney and Lacey anyone?

11.) 30 Jul 2018 16:09:25
Ironside bombing down the wing.

12.) 30 Jul 2018 18:21:30
We need Bowdie and Doyle.

13.) 30 Jul 2018 18:52:49
We need the equaliser for when we go a goal down.

{Ed033's Note - i take it you mean Denzel Washington as Edward Woodward isn't available.

14.) 30 Jul 2018 19:41:50
Well please don't put Columbo in goal :-)

15.) 30 Jul 2018 21:11:59
Tinky winky and dipsy would improve us right now.

16.) 30 Jul 2018 21:19:56
Ed033 we would probably get a better return from Edward Woodward than we are getting now.

{Ed033's Note - Maybe Everton should go to Rentaghost.

17.) 31 Jul 2018 01:23:00
Ed033.sod rentaghost, shot grotbags at centre half and watch premier strikers quiver.

{Ed001's Note - speak to Ed025 about that, he told me he married her...}

18.) 31 Jul 2018 15:37:37
Ed025 are you going to defend your version of Grotbags 😂😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - my bird is a princess joe...at least thats what she told me mate, thats what she gets for kissing frogs.. :)



25 Jul 2018 11:18:34
Moshiri has said capacity of New stadium will be 52-55k.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 12:08:29
About right imo.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 12:33:16
If that’s correct (a big “if” at the moment) , then imho that shows that the club’s hierarchy does not believe that we can ever challenge for a place at football’s top-table, which may or may not be realistic at the point that’s now been reached in the overall structure of football, but the lack of ambition it shows (just my opinion) is mind-boggling and begs the question of why are they are even bothering to run a football club - unless it’s to reach a point where the ownership can sell-up for a tidy profit.
On the other hand, would increased match-day income from a newer, bigger stadium be a major financial component compared to what we get from television money, Premier League (and UEFA completions) prize money, -commercial income (which is seems pitiful at present) and player trading? Maybe player trading is the plan: bring in promising young players to develop them and eventually transfer them for a profit.
Perhaps that’s what these young players are told: join Everton, you’ll get to play and prove yourselves, and then eventually join a “bigger” club.
Could that be why Lookman seems so unsettled - because has hasn’t been playing?
Anyway, the club remains silent (officially) about the stadium and just a few crumbs of unofficial “information” appear in the media.
It’s said that “no news is good news”, but is it really?

3.) 25 Jul 2018 12:45:44
The Etihad capacity is a fraction over 55000 and for uefa competitions it's limited to 53000. Would find it hard to argue city aren't challenging at the top table?

4.) 25 Jul 2018 12:47:13
So we need a 65000 plus stadium? Nah that's foolish, we'd never fill the darn thing. 55 seems the correct number. And remember, Man City and co have all extended capacity in their new stadiums. If the d3mand is there after we have been s3lling out 55 then sure, the design will be done in a way that had future scope for extension and that's when we can start adding to 5k seats.

Why would we want a giant stadia we can't fill?
More delusional hogwash from our fans.

5.) 25 Jul 2018 13:36:32
Apart from the last line you read my mind myteamisbetterthanyours. I'd expect plans in order to expand if need be.

{Ed002's Note - It is not possible for such a large stadium to be buit without Everton paying vast amounts in to improving the local infrastructure. Liverpool has a rather similar constraint on them.}

6.) 25 Jul 2018 15:29:18
The reason we need a better stadium is because our lack of corporate opportunities are crippling.

Before Anfield expanded, their Matchday revenue was around £62m P/ A. Ours is £18m. The huge discrepancy is largely down to our lack of corporate entertainment and not the 7 thousand or so fewer seats.

With the new stadium this will be one of the main areas to address. Whether it’s 55k or 60k it won’t make much difference in income compared to what we will gain by having a state of the art corporate experience.

Ultimately we want the right amount to fill so that the atmosphere is as close to Goodison under the lights as we can get it.


7.) 25 Jul 2018 15:26:01
Ed002: interesting point about the local infrastructure needed to support a large stadium - especially in an area like the north Liverpool docks where I’d imagine that new roads and new rail links (and stations) would have to be built to cope with the traffic not only to and from the stadium, but also to and from all the other proposed new buildings (hotels, shops, offices? ) in the entire development area.
I imagine that West Ham United’s move to the former Olympic Stadium was a great deal (financially if not for the fans! ) because the infrastructure was already in place and the stadium was already built and didn’t need a huge amount of work to have it ready for PL football.

{Ed002's Note - Generally so.}

8.) 25 Jul 2018 15:49:00
I agree. i'd rather have empty corporate seating knowing we have got enough. Its got to be better than empty seats everywhere.

5000 extra is around 3 mill a year (if we fill them all) offset that against the cost to build those extra 5000 coupled with the extra facilities, access to the ground, local infrastructure as Ed says.
doesn't seem worth it.

9.) 25 Jul 2018 17:18:17
I think you have to put your trust in Dan Meis who warns about just believing "more is better. " Also I'm almost sure I read that due to the limited size available for the footprint of the proposed stadium future extension will not be possible.

10.) 25 Jul 2018 18:07:26
Wouldnt sacrifice atmosphere for added seats. Empty seats look awful.

11.) 25 Jul 2018 22:51:53
I agree, I’m not to fussed over the capacity of the stadium, just as long as it’s over the 50k mark. It’s the sh! te sponsorship deals that infuriates me. I couldn’t care less if we where sponsored by ‘Morally’ inappropriate companies (like some say for example) betting, alcohol, etc.

We need to stop taking this moral high ground and ensure that whilst we don’t sell ourselves to the devil we get as much money we can from Shirt Sponsorship, Brands, TV, Stadium rights etc. as we can. I cannot BELIEVE some of the clubs that receive more than us in this department. Said this for years our commercial teal needs to get ‘commercial’.

12.) 26 Jul 2018 01:31:48
So 51878 I heard Meis wanted to incorporate 1878 in there

There’s nothing to say the ground isn’t future proofed with an ability to expand part of the stadium if ever deemed necessary.



16 May 2018 15:07:21
Allardyce said: “I'm shocked, disappointed and disgusted that the football club didn't have the decency to tell me, my Director of Football and my staff about the changes. Walsh not told he must be going as well.


1.) 16 May 2018 16:22:51
He was all manner of things until FM signed him a cheque for £6 mil and sent him on holiday. No doubt to 're emerge at WBA? Probably win the league but hey that's where he is.



13 May 2018 13:26:47
Sam being advertised as being on Sky Monday night. I guess he is confident he won't be sacked before then oh well thought he would make my birthday and get sacked;)


1.) 13 May 2018 18:55:10
If he's not cookie see you in August 2019.

2.) 13 May 2018 19:06:10
Wherever there is a fee, the big man will show up.

3.) 13 May 2018 19:13:44
And always happy to claim someone else's victory.

4.) 14 May 2018 10:37:08
The others will have glasses of water on the desk - will there be a jug of gravy for him?

Normally I am very patient but now 4 weeks until deadline and no one in, no one close to being in and a lot of dead wood not sold. Should I be panicking?


1.) 09 Jul 2018 20:23:57
How do you know we aren't close Cookie? The everton way is always the quiet way.



02 Jun 2018 23:28:15
Ashley Williams collapsed lung in hospital in LA pics on internet. Rubbish season but still hope he gets better soon. so we can sell.


1.) 03 Jun 2018 01:21:13
Doesn't matter about the money, just hope he gets well soon.

2.) 03 Jun 2018 08:45:31
Same here guys. He tries his best. Hope he recovers soon. He's got plenty to offer a club out there.

3.) 03 Jun 2018 09:45:35
Always have to think of the man and hope he gets awell. But don't kid ourselves that we'd get any money in. He must be removed from the playing staff this summer.

4.) 03 Jun 2018 12:41:28
Give him to Swansea with some money and get Mawson.

5.) 03 Jun 2018 23:12:34
How about we give Swansea 5 million just to take him off our hands.

6.) 04 Jun 2018 12:13:02
'always tries his best' no he doesn't he's had his head up his a** all season and got sent off on purpose away at burnley because he was that not bothered and playing woefully, wish him his health but never want to see him in blue again an absolute disgrace.



15 May 2018 20:56:06
The merry go round has began Elstone has gone to rugby looks like all the rumours last couple week were right looking forward to tomorrow.


1.) 15 May 2018 21:25:53
I knew Elstone was going to rugby 6 weeks ago. The chairman's of all super League clubs voted him in. Worst kept secret ever. Now please announce Allerdyce has gone.

2.) 15 May 2018 21:26:15
What will we all do if Sam is given a three year extended contract?

3.) 15 May 2018 22:13:56
Move to a country where they don’t show Everton games.



17 Apr 2018 21:08:51
BBC reporting Everton sending survey out to see how fans feel about Sam and management. Obviously Moshiri hasn't internet access as think it is unanimous one sided and doesn't take too much searching. Or is this part of official sacking process?


1.) 17 Apr 2018 22:30:47
I am reliably informed that Moshiri wants him to stay . I hope in this case I am not reliable .

{Ed025's Note - i hope so too jonno..

2.) 17 Apr 2018 22:51:20
He will change his mind Jono when the survey results come back. Even after Syria, I think the uk Euro entry for the song contest will pick up more points than Sam will in this survey.

3.) 18 Apr 2018 00:39:24
Unfortunately it's another example of the leadership procrastinating instead of acting.
I don't know if it will help but I am a member of evertonfc.com I have just contacted them and asked to take part in the survey but noted that I rate Big Sam 1 out of 10.
We should all try and get our thoughts out to them.



13 Mar 2018 21:40:33
Smit he has spent 47 as he got Walcott as well.
