Ed002, I have looked through your past comments on some "continental" players. and it looks like a waiting game. Do you know of any other lower league youngsters that we are watching? eg in the same level of Lookman type. promising with great potential?

Degsypulford

{Ed002's Note - Adam Webster but it now has to wait.}


1.) 23 Jan 2017 13:01:40
I am guessing because of his injury. which could also put the whole thing out of the window? Shame, because he looks a promising lad from Youtube clips.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he is injured and it could be a major spanner in the works.}

Interesting that we have not been linked with Fonte much. Apparently he won't sign a new deal at Southampton and our manager knows him very well.

Degsypulford

1.) 05 Jan 2017 17:29:02
He's 33. I'd rather we look for younger players.


2.) 05 Jan 2017 17:33:15
Fonte is a good player but we should look for younger defenders how many more over 30s in defence do we want van dyk would be my choice but can't see that happening so Keane, Gibson and smalling would do for me.


3.) 05 Jan 2017 22:14:40
Not that I'm entirely in the Fonte in gang but how many up and coming young CB are we going to sign too?

Ideally someone in mid twenties. We have Mori who is in that age group. Also have Holgate and Galloway who are round the 20 mark.

I wouldn't completely full out Fonte. We'd know exactly what we are getting. An injury to Williams and it looks like we'd be up sh*te street. As much as I like Jags and appreciate everything he has done as of late he's not performing.

Not saying I really want Fonte but can see plenty of positives about signing him. Look at it this way, he'd be 100 times better signing than Niasse.


4.) 05 Jan 2017 22:19:27
O yea, forgot to mention Browning and Matty Foulds. Are these 4 young CB's I mentioned going to get a chance?


5.) 06 Jan 2017 13:07:22
I think RK preferred backline is with a back 3 so we need legs at the back so i can see Galloway being given a chance next season on the left side of the 3 with Holgate on the right of the 3. We then need a strong central defender which seems to be Williams this season but he isn't the future.

So i can see why we wouldn't want or need Fonte as we would then have a player approaching 34 next season with no resale value who will not be getting game time.

VVD would be the ideal candidate but can't see that happening personally.
If we did pull it off that would be a good young footballing back 3 that could be the future of our club and the foundation to build upon.

This is just a little after thought and not really that important, but how come Ozil was pushing and shoving as they walked off at half time. he had to be restrained and basically lost it. Clattenburg did nothing? So Wenger moaning about Clattenburg who should really have sent Ozil off. Clattenburg was one of the ones restraining Ozil and telling him to calm down. yet he never even booked him?

Does make you wonder! 🤔.

Because they don't like it up 'em, Captain Mainwaring - oh no, they do not like it up 'em!


3.) 15 Dec 2016 18:49:10
Handbags. What is the ref supposed to do book every player for looking at someone the wrong way. Big Dunc would have been booked and sent off every game.


 

 

31 Aug 2016 22:21:30
Sissoko has stiched us up. Plane on runway, Koemans calls ignored. Off to Spurs. let's wish him well when we play them and show what his loyalty means eh?

Degsypulford

Let's laugh when he's warming the bench.

Cmon degsy not really for us eh overpriced and overrated!


 

 

30 Aug 2016 17:03:52
Apparently Axel Witsel's agent has just said that although his player was holding out for a transfer to Juventus, Everton have put in a serious proposition. He mentioned wages being a stumbling block with Juve. so I am guessing we have offered a substantial package to him? Interesting.

Degsypulford

1.) 30 Aug 2016 17:14:30
Forgot to say. perhaps Lukaku staying and Mirallas looking good again. aren't they all mates in the Belgium squad? And who is their new national manager. maybe just maybe more is going on than we imagined.


2.) 30 Aug 2016 18:36:32
Rarther than a money wasting panic buy, always had the view that an in form and motivated Mirallas, could play as a striker, particularly if were bringing in another winger.

10 or so games ago, the manager dropped Ross Barkley. He told the media that Ross needed to sort his game out. That he needed to decide what he wanted. Ross was a shadow of the player we thought he could be. Ross Barkle is now starting to look aggressive, hungry and like most of all.

he is enjoying winning football matches. The previous manager never criticised him. It was alwys encouragement. My own view is that this manager is a born winner. He does not care how we win football matches. We can sort out the niceties at a later date.

For now, let's get every player fighting for the club. let's get every player enjoying winning football matches. because there is nothing worse than losing football matches. even if you are playing well.

{Ed025's Note - good post that degs, and i agree that tough love seems to have worked on ross, ronnie will not pull any punches mate and i like that about him..


1.) 22 Jan 2017 10:23:39
Dogs of war topped with a large helping of quality.


2.) 22 Jan 2017 16:31:35
Agree that the last regime wouldn't say a bad word about the lad, meaning he could switch off and do as he pleased as he was, by and large, one of the first names on the team sheet. Credit has to also go to RK for giving him a kick up the backside and keeping him on his toes with his 'tough love' stance. Ross has also taken on board what his new manager wants and expects from him, it might have taken a bit longer than we all wanted but he is getting there and that's all that matters I suppose.
Another thing worth noting Degs is that he hasn't got the weight of the fans on his shoulders in the same way as the last few seasons. The emergence of Davis has given Ross a bit more freedom from being the only one who tries to make things happen. He looks a totally different player now that he can play his own game. Someone said on here a while ago that Ross would look a lot better when he had good players around him, forget who that was but they were spot on. With the likes of Gana, Davis and now Schneiderlin we will see Ross further forward causing mayhem for the opposition. Hopefully :)


3.) 22 Jan 2017 17:26:05
There is also the point I went on and on about. lack of goal scorers throughout the side. especially in midfield. Players like Cleverly, McCarthy, Barry and Besic seemed to play game after game without ever contributing with goals or assists. Our opposition just had to stop Lukaku and Barkley and they effectively nullified us. So we looked pretty poor around the oppositions penalty box. We would have 70 or even 80% possession but do nothing with it because Lukaku and Barkley were heavily man marked. All of a sudden we have Gana and Davies who are willing to bust a gut and get from our box to the oppo box and that frees up space for Barkley and Lukaku. and the full backs who have started scoring again. no coincidence in my view.


 

 

21 Jan 2017 17:43:13
Oh and I thought Robles was outstanding with the high balls being pumped in for the ex red. That is something we have been very poor at dealing with the last season or so. He dealt with everything he had to and took the pressure off at a time when other keepers have faltered.

21 Jan 2017 17:32:09
It is worth taking a look at our run in. We are capable of winning a lot of those games and Koeman has reintroduced the fighting spirit that was lost under Martinez. We looklike a team again. I would say the ball is in our court now as to where we end up. and I am happy that with one or two more decent signings, we will be challenging for the top 4. Maybe not this season. but next certainly.

Degsypulford

1.) 21 Jan 2017 17:48:42
Next 7 games with the exception of spurs and Stoke are favourable. A win at Stoke and we could well be on a run, and the anything could happen.
Utd and city are catchable in my eyes


2.) 21 Jan 2017 18:21:45
When Koeman was at Southampton they had shaky starts to the season. But as the season went on they improved and climbed the table. Imho 7th at worst to finish.


3.) 21 Jan 2017 18:29:04
Agree NBTB. could be a good few months


 

 

17 Jan 2017 10:56:07
Just to continue with all the positive stuff. has anyone looked at our fixture list and run in? This time last year we had gone like 10 without a win and had to play all the top sides . most away. This season we have a potentially great run in. We have a few like Man United, Spurs, Arsenal and the reds away which will be tough. but the rest are all winnable fixtures. not that the ones above are impossible. It really is in our own hands how we end up now and with the confidence running through the squad, and another signing or 2.anything is possible.

Degsypulford

1.) 17 Jan 2017 15:06:11
The next 5 fixtures we should win put some pressure on the mancs


2.) 17 Jan 2017 16:26:26
If we get 6 wins in a row ( including the city thrashing ) I will approach the EDs to see if they will change my name to HappyToffee. I will also donate something to Everton in the Community


3.) 17 Jan 2017 17:15:50
If we win 6 in a row I will be amazed. that is a tough ask. Other teams will know about us now and start to defend deep. This is where Koeman must earn his dosh getting the tactics right. but I would have his ability to vary things (and sometimes get it wrong) over Martinez's inability to change anything every time.


4.) 17 Jan 2017 21:01:05
Koeman has changed players, formations, so much this season to see what works best for the team pure class manager. martinez never changed formation 4231all the time no wander we finished in 11th for 2 seasons in koeman we trust.


 

 

16 Jan 2017 11:52:39
Someone put a post on here saying Tom Davies gave him memories of Alan Whittle. I am guessing the blonde locks and way he runs with the ball. But did you know, he is actually Alan Whittle's nephew!

Degsypulford

1.) 16 Jan 2017 13:03:37
I keep watching the the Heal that completely taxid clichy and yaya before he clown faced Bravo. Playground stuff cheeky little fecker.


2.) 16 Jan 2017 14:29:13
Robles then back 3 holgate Williams Mori, midfield 5, Coleman Davis Schneiderlin McArthy Baines, Barkley, Miralas, Lukaku. And then look at the bench, with hopefully more quality to come in this window. Good Summer Pre-Season and bring on 2017-18.


3.) 16 Jan 2017 14:38:16
Yes if Messi had of done it, it would be goal of the month, season, century etc. It was actually 2 pieces of quite brilliant ball control that have made me view him in quite a different way. At first I thought the kid had potential to make it. Now I believe he should be starting every game. albeit with Barry or Shneids or McCarthy alongside him for when the man marking starts. He will get targetted by the opposition now for sure. This is the best breakthrough we have had since Rooney. How old is he again? What will he be like when he is 25? Wow what a prospect. Sometimes as a manager, you have to fit a player into a system. At other times you have to change the system in order to accomodate the player (when they are really exceptional) . I would say this is one of those situations. He really is ready to face the big boys and be found out how good is he?


4.) 16 Jan 2017 14:45:28
Gana?


5.) 16 Jan 2017 14:34:03
Yes he is Alan Whittle's nephew but as a player he reminds me of the great Peter Reid the driving force of our great 80's side.
let's hope he continues to improve and with Moshiri here we do not have to sell him like we have sold so many in the past.


6.) 16 Jan 2017 21:00:20
Rakatic. He reminded me so much of him on Sunday. Does the dirty work feeds the front 3 but gets his share of goals as well.

If he gets to his level we will have some player on our hands.

He actually said he would not stand in Wayne's way for a big money move to China. He did not say he would allow him to move to the team one place below them who are showing considerable ambition and must now be considered a competitor. Perhaps he would let us buy him. but I would think there would be a considerable fee? Probably dictated by the sort of money that would be offered by the Chinese. eg I cannot see them turning down a huge fee from China to allow him to move to us for free. This is of course assuming he is under contract and the Chinese are offering a fee? Any knowledge on that Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United will let Rooney leave once they have a replacement - which might be as early as this summer. Everton will have the option to make a proposal if they wish to do so.}

He is a very good player with many assists and a good goal ratio. He is well built and strong but also with a powerful shot. Many of his goals are from outside the box. He is the link I have been saying we need. He works his socks off and Lukaku and Mirallas would have so much joy with him in and around them. The only problem is that Southampton and Swansea are alsolinked with him according to the reports. I would see him replacing the position that Valencia plays. He would certainly create more than Valencia and although the Premier League is tougher, I still think he has the ability to produce if we buy him. I hope the rumours are true. I would say Cahill with more ability if that interests anyone?

I can't believe SA90 saying take it. Whatever you think of Ross. transfers are stupid now. look how we spent the 40 million from Man City that we got for Stones. so we would be selling the one creative midfielder we have in our squad (even if you think he is rubbish. he is the only creative one ready for 1st team except perhaps Tom Davies) and we would have 35 million to spend on who? Bolasie was around 25 million and Williams at 31 was 12 million. Who has a creative midfielder better than Ross Barkley for sale (and remember he adds to the English contingent of our squad) for 35 million and is willing to sell? So basically just get rid?

Alan Smith, Alan Smith and Alan Smith. His voice drives me mad and I have never heard such a red who is not a red. Then he talks a load of biased drivel whereby the "top 4" clubs never do anything wrong and anything Everton is wrong! I am sure he is a closet Liverpool fan.

NBTB I bow to your statistic mate and amamazed. It is an emotive subject guys, but me and NBTB respect each others view and I gave him some stats . and he is just responding. so no worries from me there. in fact I think it is fair to say we both respect each others in depth knowledge of all things EFC. But yes Martinez should be respected for Lukaku and some of the things he did. I will accept that.

I don't care if some games we look great and others we defend and defend. Grind out results even. That's how all top sides start. Then the confidence stuff comes later. Winning mentality is what it's about. The mid eightees team started like that. Eventually we were in games one nil down with 10 nins to go. and as the great Howard Kendall said, "you just knew we were going to nick a goal and get a result". I had that feeling again yesterday.

I agree with a lot of what you say coyb. the only thing I really dissagree with is that I chose the best of Moyes players and used them. actually I just looked up the 2013/ 4 squad and compared it with the squad prior to Koeman. So the player examples were what Martinez inherited. Yes Moyes made some bad signings. Yes Martinez made some potentially good young signings. But I couldping pong this back and say they are not first team regulars and we could goon and on. how about we forget this one and enjoy today's win. Another ground out using tactics that Martinez would never have used. that much me and NBTB agree on 100%. My main point on the Martinez debate was that when Koeman took over, he should have had a squad with mainly Martinez signings making the 1st team. He did not. He had a few Martinez signings and more ageing Moyes ones. But let's enjoy the positives hey? let's enjoy that Koeman is signing some younger players now and ones to replace the ageing ones. and giving Martinez youngsters a chance and most of all. we are winning football matches! COYB and coyNBTB
