Oh dear the Baines leaving for MLS have re-surfaced.


1.) 24 Jun 2018 13:44:34
Don't get me wrong I love Baines but if Silva and brands have decided it's time for him to move on sadly so be it.
Purely guesswork but if it's true then I'd guess a replacement has been identified
Personally I'd rather see Baines leave before his level if performances drop I'd much rather remember the great performances that Baines has given rather than seeing him drop in level and get remembered for mistakes or poor performances as has happened to other players that we have kept on for too long and if it's the mls he's going to go to that would be best for all as I would hate to see him playing for another English club.

2.) 24 Jun 2018 14:29:32
What would people think about getting someone like Fabien Delph in for short term cover? Would give us someone experienced for a few seasons until we get the right player for long term.

3.) 24 Jun 2018 14:59:19
Delphi seems a good player I think though he won't leave city didn't he play a lot last season for them.

4.) 24 Jun 2018 15:14:41
delph at lb is poor, rather play Robinson.

5.) 24 Jun 2018 18:11:05
Can't go on forever signs of age starting to catch up with him. Amazing player over time who deserves proper send off.

6.) 25 Jun 2018 09:06:29
Funny enough I've said for a couple of weeks I'd take delph to play in the middle actually I rate him myself.

7.) 25 Jun 2018 12:02:40
Unfortunately time catches up with everyone and Bainesy is no exception. He has been one of my favourites since he donned the shirt and he's one Everton player who deserves the status Legend. I hope he stays and shows everyone there is life in the old dog yet, but if the club, or he thinks it's time to move on so be it. It'll be a sad day but we'll get over it.



17 Jun 2018 09:08:34
Papers are saying Marvin Plattenhardt is ready to sign for Everton a like for like Baines swap. But he'll sign after the world cup. A very good signing if it happens. I wouldn't get too excited just yet though as teams will see his performance and potentially pip us for his signature. If it was a done deal us capturing his signatures then we'd fly out there and get it sorted. Fingers crossed though.


1.) 17 Jun 2018 12:13:25
Was reading about this guy earlier papers suggested we held interest back in January will be watching the Germany match later to see more of him and Lozano as I just don’t think the links on him will disappear.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 13:03:48
Think he's Germany's 2nd choice LB so don't think we'll have to worry about his performances mate.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 15:29:57
In the team! Fingers crossed we can get him.

4.) 17 Jun 2018 16:03:25
Oh yeah he's starting! My mistake. Let's see how him and Lozano get on and hopefully sign the pair of them up.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst Hirving Lozano was certainly of interest to Sam Allardyce, it is difficult to see him joining Everton given that (a) Brands was at PSV and there may well be a "no poaching" agreement in place, and (b) he will have more attractive options available to him.}

5.) 17 Jun 2018 16:34:00
I thought Lozano was quite an attractive option who would you say are the more attractive options open to Brands now then? 😉.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is always going to be taking on a coach or Technical Director from another side and then trying to cherry pick their players, so I would not hold out hope of Lozano joining Everton this summer. One player who is not dissimilar to Lozano who is of interest to Everton (and a couple of other sides) is Porto's Yacine Brahimi.}

6.) 17 Jun 2018 16:44:55
I thought that might be the case Ed, shame for us.
On the positive side of things I put a 10er on him to score first and he's just slotted one home!

7.) 17 Jun 2018 17:03:38
I believe the Ed was referring to there being more attractive options for Lozano, not Brands.

8.) 17 Jun 2018 18:16:58
Well that didn't look good. Spent all his time out wide, and looked very short on pace.

9.) 17 Jun 2018 18:15:51
Wasn't Brahimi a target under Koeman ed002? Think I remember the links.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}

10.) 17 Jun 2018 21:04:56
I think the most important thing is in brands we have man that brought lazano to psv if he comes us great but if he doesn't then he can find the next young talent out there to pursue.

11.) 17 Jun 2018 21:59:41
I know Brian hence my wink 😉.

12.) 19 Jun 2018 00:24:03
The Echo reports there is nothing in Brands' contract which prevents him from swooping for PSV players.


Let's go get Chucky!



21 May 2018 23:01:47
Just reading a rumour that we are 3rd favourites for Richaldson. Seriously though if true. Lookman dammit seriously. Again if true why is Lookman again being overlooked. What's the lad got to do.


1.) 22 May 2018 09:22:16
I wouldn't worry at this time we don't even have a manager yet and Brands doesn't officially start till the first!
But the journalists will still be busy in the meantime!

2.) 22 May 2018 09:23:07
I think it's paper talk being honest Silva looks like he is coming in so the press put 2 and 2 together and get 69 (my fave number)

3.) 22 May 2018 09:27:37
Mowfee it's just paper talk with us looking like we going to get Silva and him bringing him to Watford it's just papers putting 2 and 2 together plus I think we would be the last club watford would sell him to mate.

4.) 22 May 2018 13:08:58
I'm sure Watford will be willing to sell to us. what with our new found friendship with them.



20 May 2018 17:20:22
This whole Usmanov story is weird. Because reading reports. Kroenke doesn't want to buy him out and who is going to spend 700m on no say. Right now seems highly unlikely.


1.) 20 May 2018 18:37:21
I'm pretty sure that 30% shares in Arsenal will sell a little easier than you think.
Have people lost their minds in the sun?

2.) 20 May 2018 20:56:25
If you had £600m would you buy 30% shares that don't get you a seat on the board and don't get you a say in the running of the club? Kroenke doesn't need them as he already has a majority shareholding. Usmanov's best hope is that Kroenke wants to de-list the club on the Stock Exchange which would require total ownership and allow him to do what he wants with it.

3.) 20 May 2018 21:10:08
Its a little more complicated than that bullens.

4.) 20 May 2018 21:09:16
I'd sell em for more than that.

5.) 20 May 2018 21:23:02
He doesn't have to sell them all to one person. There might be a few people willing to buy some of his shares. Fingers crossed.

6.) 20 May 2018 21:59:53
Thats true Blueray but I'm sure he would want them sold in one hit.

7.) 21 May 2018 11:35:39
Even a multi-billionaire wouldn’t spend that amount on shares unless he could have a say in the running of the club or could sell his holding for a profit later on.

8.) 21 May 2018 11:45:21
Mowfee82 Kroenke countered the offer that Usmanov made to buy his shares in Arsenal silent Stan WILL buy them off him should he decide to sell and if I was in a position where I had £700m worth of shares in a company and no actual say in how it was run I would sell and move on to something else.

9.) 21 May 2018 12:37:40
We shall see then Wooly.

10.) 21 May 2018 13:42:22
£600 million of arsenal shares will give you a better return than investing in a bank, arsenal is all about profit.

11.) 21 May 2018 13:51:40
chairlie571: are the profits from income (dividends) or when you sell the shares?



18 May 2018 07:35:17
It's Silva. Brands has been "stated" as saying that's who he wants too. Couple of weeks he'll be announced. So I wouldn't keep wondering who it might be. It's Silva.


1.) 18 May 2018 08:20:55
It's good that both owner and dof want the same person as manager. Hopefully a united front all working together to make the club great again.

2.) 18 May 2018 11:30:51
To the people who Thumbsed down. Are you saying in talking rubbish or disagreeing with the fact that he's coming.

3.) 18 May 2018 12:14:21
Not sure why it would take a couple of weeks. Silva has been out of work and the club must have known Sam was leaving. Let's get it done and the team working on recruitment.

4.) 18 May 2018 15:52:06
Probably the compo with Watford holding it up.

5.) 18 May 2018 17:18:01
The club courted Brands for two years it would be naive to think that a conversation to that end had not happened months ago about which manager he wanted obvs behind closed doors🙄
Big C.

6.) 18 May 2018 20:34:40
Is this the same people who stated Brands wouldn't be done for 3 weeks?
Don't take it personally but I think a manager will be appointed much quicker.

I'd assume there was a major problem if it took 3 weeks to appoint a coach who is out of work and available. Perhaps with today being quiet, the new boss isn't as clear as we think?

Maybe a few more applicants are yet to have a meeting with the the club? Makes more sense than the club knowing who they want but having to wait 3 weeks to announce.

7.) 18 May 2018 23:55:43
OllBlue. That's exactly why it could take a couple of weeks. Watford have complained to the F.A. About tapping. What makes matters worse. Kenwright "supposedly" told Watford that we wouldn't persue Silva in the summer. It's been a week since the prem season ended and we already made contact. Upset Watford even more. They going all out to reap massive compensation. With the sacking of Allerdyce and his staff, keeping Watford sweet. It's going to cost in excess of 30 million to get Silva on the books. So be better be good lol.

19 Jun 2018 10:39:03
Hopefully the paper is 100% correct when they write "Brands has been given the green light to raid PSV" Lozano please. But does that mess up Lookman.


1.) 19 Jun 2018 12:39:29
Lookman is great but it's naive to expect him to come in from the cold and be the main man.
He wasn't the starter on loan, he was a sub.

Same goes for him here.
He is my favourite young player so I'm not knocking him but let's be realistic. He should be more than happy at the end of this coming season to have made 30 appearances.
Mostly as a sub.

If Bolasie goes (fingers crossed) we will need 3 wingers. Lookman is a pretty useful sub to have. He can play both wings.

Shouldn't be a concern. Vlasic on the other hand. not good enough and won't get any game time.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 13:05:07
Good assessment Myteam. Rumour is Lookman wants out but it might just be rumour. I agree about Vlasic. He has a good shot but cannot ghost past players. unlike Lookman. Only bit I disagree with is Bolasie will want to stay as per my other posts. Just back from serious injury and on a great salary. Why would anyone want to buy/ take him and pay the sort of salary he is on at Everton? He may never recover his form so it is a risk. and I can be sure his salary is pretty good. how else did we coax him to Everton?

3.) 19 Jun 2018 14:42:36
With lookman rumoured to be wanting out that could be old news due to lack of game time under previous managers, new scenario now and I hope he presses for game time and then starts.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 15:47:44
Wasn't there also a rumour during Koemans era that Lookman was also home sick.

5.) 19 Jun 2018 16:44:26
Yeah homesick cures are often to go even farther away to somewhere like, say Germany?

Press jumped on it for 1 day and it's stuck ever since. Homesick nonsense.

6.) 19 Jun 2018 18:49:07
Being as he was offered a loan in the championship but preferred to play in Germany, I’d guess that the homesick thing was total bull.



18 Jun 2018 08:03:26
Again Everton are linked with Wiltshire. Reading just reading some Arsenal fans tweets and it seems like there is no loyalty towards him at all. Basically they all read he's not good enough for the team and that's because us and West Ham are thinking of offering him a contract (his expires next month) and he's injury prone. To be fair though when he was loaned out under Wenger I did think hmm not a good sign for the player who came through their academy. Anyway it seems Arsenal fans now think they are apart of the elite now they have Unai Emery.


1.) 18 Jun 2018 08:53:44
When he was at his peak. great player. Then injury after injury. serious ones. Now he is no longer at his peak. Now he cannot even establish himself in the Arsenal team. He has been out on loan where he was ok. Nothing more. Do we want another highly paid has been on our already high wage bill? I say nooooooo! Get Lookman in the team and give him a rise!

2.) 18 Jun 2018 09:31:23
I would be very surprised if we go for Wilshire as he just isn't good enough, or even the type of player I would expect us to target as one of our first signings.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 12:19:40
Wilshire is a very good player and in a position I think we need a player. We miss an experienced no8 which he can play and links the midfielder very well.

The problem for me is that he doesn't look after himself, will want a massive wage and his injuries are extensive.

I'd have him only as a last resort.

4.) 18 Jun 2018 15:12:44
Pay as you play for 12 months to prove his worth otherwise scrap yard time for the lad.

Talented for sure (Don't listen to plastics, they have zero to spout off about)
Could do us a job too but not worth a few or a big wage.
If he really wants it, he would choose us over WH otherwise has a moron.



07 Jun 2018 22:59:22
Good to hear Klassen still wanting to play for Everton. Hopefully he's looking to stay for whole contract and not looking to move else where in the prem. I think he has a lot to give and Everton were crap, even Neymar or Messi would of struggled.
I think he could be quite decent in midfield playing in the right team.
Just look at him for Ajax.


1.) 08 Jun 2018 01:55:38
Agree Mowfee82. You don't become a bad player overnight. He is good at what he does but does need to toughen up a bit to handle prem league.

2.) 08 Jun 2018 09:33:01
Think we should give him pre season I'm sure Silva will get the best out of him and as you say dentie you don't become a bad player over night he put in some good performances for Ajax hopefully after abit of decent coaching we will see a different player next season.

3.) 08 Jun 2018 11:53:37
I agree Lee. We had to be more physical last season because of our need to fight for results due to low confidence. So Klaassen was a bit of a luxury to have around. So I would hope that a way can be found to put him to good use after of course he has a good pre season.

4.) 08 Jun 2018 13:28:57
Could be he was in a better team at Ajax. That usually helps.



06 Jun 2018 00:11:14
I reckon now we got rid of the rot, and employed an ace DOF and a class attacking coach. I think we are going to be alright. I think now you can't blame the management. If the team fails then it's that the team isn't good enough and Brands will get rid and replace as necessary.
Brands and Silva were supposedly chatting to each other before any of them signed, so either of them could of pulled out.
I know I shouldn't be getting excited but if Marcel can get another striker, a left back, a centre back and get Lookman on the left wing. I think we could be pushing for Europe with Marco's tactics. That is what we need. If Marcel can pull that off in the massively shortened transfer market then the man is a god. If he can't then I think top 10 but good football I'm happy to pay for.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 00:26:57
Top 10? It's about 7th (anything higher is brilliant but a bonus) even he with no name got in top 10 pretty easily. This season it's about bridging the point gulf.
We need to be aiming for about 62 65 points. Obviously those numbers in years past (depending upon year) would have put us in contention for top 6.
Otherwise I agree Mowfee82.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 12:09:01
7th has to be the goal. We went backwards when we were expected to get into the top 6 or at least make it a top 7. So I’d say being best if the rest is a realistic target. And closing the gap to 6th would be a very good season indeed.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 14:38:39
I don't really want to put a position on it.
If we can have a good close season, get 3-4 quality additions to the squad, jettison a lot of the deadwood we have in our current inflated squad size I will be happy
Having said that. If we can do that, there is no reason not to expect a good season with a stronger defence, an attack minded midfield, a cutting edge up front and our youngsters coming through. I just won't be pissed off if we end up 6th, 7th or even 10th as long I can see progress.

Let's give the new team time and hopefully they will exceed expectations rather than put pressure on them and be disappointed.

4.) 06 Jun 2018 20:17:29
Any lower than 7th is a failure. Yet we can't expect any higher. Our sqaud isn't as bad as it seems we are just unbalanced still and have had poor management.



25 May 2018 04:04:28
I wish they'd get this manager appointment over and done with. The suspense is driving me mad. We all know it's Silva, so hurry up. If by some slim chance it's not Silva. Then we still need to hurry up. Because the managers we're supposedly interested in are getting snapped up.

I read a report so can't claim this as my fact, but one rag claims all their centre backs seem to struggle in their first year, then they start to shine. They have 6 now so my guess would be. If they keep him he's going to be really good since they paid 35 million or something close to that. If he sells them then they aren't up to Mourinho's standards. If he sells him cheap then he's terrible. If he recoups most of his money back then there's every good chance Silva will bring the very best out of him. If he doubles his price then it's a risk you take.

Barkley never listened to any manager why would he with Silva? and he weren't that good. He had brilliance once ever 4/ 5 games. I'm glad he went. I was saying this now 4 seasons ago "he needs to go" You're telling me in a team like Chelsea's you can't flourish. Chelsea make's Barkley stand out but for how poor he really is. 15 million sucks because it should of been 30, but honestly he's not even worth 15 so be thankful.

Sorry slight typo. That's for Baines to show the, up and coming player how it's done. Not the other way round as I wrote in my post.

22 May 2018 23:06:53
I actually feel quite sick, Baines going. He's last of the marvellous 4. Baines, Arteta, Cahill and Pienaar. Coleman was at Blackpool.
I'm a gutted to, we are giving him away. Ok he's in his 30's but he's still got legs. He wouldn't just walk away after the team's had a terrible season would he? Something must of happened, but what? This is like the quickest transfer ever isn't it. He's our only left back. So guaranteed a spot unless we get a world class left back. But if we are getting a left back that's up and coming then that's to cover him and show him how it's done. Not to replace him. So if he goes, now we need 2. So I don't get it.

I know BlueJohns and I have a really good feeling about him and Brands working together a proper management team. Brands said he's stays well clear of tactics, but he doesn't let a player come in or go without the coach's approval. Brands listens to the scouts and trainers then negotiates a deal. Moshiri certainly listened to sound advice on this one. If Silva gets us champion league football he'll stay. If he gets us a cup and or European football. Chelsea, Utd and maybe Tottenham could come knocking then he'll be gone. I don't get why people are disagreeing with me. He only signed last week and he hasn't played a game yet.

10 Jun 2018 19:55:06
Why are people thumbs down to my first comment. It's true he hasn't played a game yet and you think Moshiri wants to extend his contract. The one he signed 2 weeks ago. Fools if you think that.




Click To View This Thread

10 Jun 2018 15:35:41
I can't see him extending just yet. Too much of a risk, just over a season experience in the prem and that's with 2 clubs. If he does well then his head gets turned and Moshiri has to sack him with 3/ 4 years remaining.

Agreed Dentie. I swear I broke a rib laughing so hard when he made them blunders more so the first one. But no one should ever deserve that abuse ever. I feel bad for him having to read that. I find it hard to believe it's their own supporters. Even after every game of watching Barkley frustrate the hell out of me, not once did I ever think such horrible things. These people are. Let me change that. These animals need to be put down like a dog with rabies for the sake of humanity.
