I've heard pickford is up for the move to Chelsea.
Let's just hope 75m doesn't come calling.
Also brands and Silva are stamping their authority over the club and are concerned about an old boys network that is currently in place.
This fella is privy to inside info and I am just passing on the latest from him.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 08:25:18
Jags was on the radio yesterday saying Pickford was happy with life at Goodison and laughed at the idea of joining Chelsea.

I’m not dissing your info Pauly but just stating that there’s other opinions from within the club that differ.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 08:32:09
We won't sell Pickford mate, no chance unless something ridiculous like 100 million comes in, he is happy where he is too for now, a good source in my work told me about the old boys click too and he is usually spot on, he actually mentioned Baines and Silva are not speaking, we will see what squad we have soon as the clock is ticking, I personally think we will spend a lot of money in the next few days.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 11:59:34
So CFC are going to spend more for their replacement than the fee they'll get for Courtois?
Ok logical.

4.) 31 Jul 2018 12:41:33
If we could definitely get Butland for say 30 mill and get around 80 mill for Pickford then great good business, we get a keeper who is as good if not better and 50 mill to spend.

5.) 31 Jul 2018 15:03:07
Butland as good as or better than Pickford? Are you messing? dark clouds, sometimes it seems that your comments on here are just out to wind the rest up for a reaction!

6.) 31 Jul 2018 16:06:05
I think any difference between Pickford and Courtois fees would be down more to the length of contract Courtois only has a year I believe so his value has dropped due to that
Just my thoughts.

7.) 31 Jul 2018 17:23:47
Well CFC quoted 100 mil to real so how does that sit in your thoughts southern?

8.) 31 Jul 2018 19:33:30
Tell you what Dark Clouds . whilst my assessment is slightly differently to yours I totally agree, Butland and 50mill would do me right down to the ground!

9.) 31 Jul 2018 21:57:46
If they get £100m for Courtois with one year remaining then I would be amazed! Would also love to see how much we could get for Pickford with 4 years remaining but if I am honest why would we sell our number one goalkeeper!

{Ed025's Note - our number 1 asset ST..

10.) 31 Jul 2018 23:32:34
the 100million was being reported ad for courtouis AND willian.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 20:17:01
They will be lucky to get £40mil for Courtois and I doubt any team in the world will value Pickford at anything close to what Everton would want for him. Why would you sell to be fair, a top keeper is hard to find you could spend the next 10 years trying to replace him.



01 Nov 2017 22:32:36
The team look woeful.
Reminds me of aston villa when they went down.
I wasnt even this worried during our last 2 flirts with relegation.
If we are in the bottom 3 at xmas i really can't see us escaping.
Im not using that boring whos top and whos bottom at xmas blah blah blah line, i just feel that by then if we are still adrift the players will be absolutely finished mentally.

Leicester was our worst performance all season.
They are not responding to any change in personel or tactics.
I would recall dowell, play lookman and baningime more and put more of the u23s in and hopefully get rid of some in jan and then pay massively for a decent forward.
Clubs will sell for stupid money and before the moaning about inflated prices just picture a goal scorer coming in and saving the season or don't pay silly money and get yaself an A-Z for our 1st season in the championship.

I strongly believe we would struggle in the championship so a quick return would not be on the cards. l.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 07:23:21
A tad negative there mate.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 09:15:11
One word


3.) 02 Nov 2017 17:00:37
Lad if you want me to read about allardyce and dyche etc then forget prozac, ill start shooting up!
Ive watched us lift titles and cups in my lifetime and i am telling you all this team we have now is woeful.

4.) 03 Nov 2017 11:36:40
Normally I would agree about clubs around xmas being worried but not me, by then we should have Coleman, Bolasie and Funes Mori back, a new transfer window open and a chance to sort the defence and striker issue out.

Other clubs have had tough starts like Everton, but each of those have a recognised striker on their books and no long term injuries like the above three and McCarthy.

If we can get the above 4 back in and bring a couple of strikers in, possibly give Garbutt a run out and we should be fine.

Our downfall was playing too many new faces too soon and against the big boys.

Jorginho should've got a straight red.
Thought so today and just watched it again on MOTD and it was definitely a red card.
Alonso was lucky to still be on the pitch and K Friend should not referee a big game ever again.
It's a compliment to us though that Chelsea resorted to kicking us off the pitch rather than playing.
The protection hazzard is receiving is diabolical. Poor finishing and control let us down today and I thought we were well capable of getting 3 points.
Massive improvement and I think this game will be a turning point for us.
Defensively we were the best I've seen in a long long time. I still think there is something missing, possibly the need to drop Walcott and bring in lookman for a few games.
Walcott was ineffective and his lack of control let us down a few times today.
Mina was faultless apart from the morrata incident.
I thought Gomes disappeared for a while but I know he isn't fully fit same as Bernard who I thought was unlucky not to score and then he totally messed up later on but I think he could do a job more central.
Richarlison looked a bit lost but I also think we didn't look as fluid going forward.
I'm happy because the last few fixtures at Chelsea have been embarrassing so for me this is excellent progress.
This is just my personal opinion and overall I am happy but still feel like we could've took all 3 points today.


1.) 12 Nov 2018 19:46:15
If K Friend doesn't ref a match again then we would have to put up with J Moss even more. And that is a more worrying thought.



06 Oct 2018 20:01:17
I said a while back that we signed a world class player in Bernard. He is still only 70% fit.
Imagine this fella at 100%!
Love the team right now and today he found his 11.
Well done Marco and well done the lads.
Faultless away performance.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 21:56:13
Its about keeping feet on ground.

{Ed025's Note - never one to go overboard are we ktf?..

2.) 06 Oct 2018 22:16:22
Ed25 with respect probably supported this team since you were a bag in dads bagdad. What I object to is the utter disrespect and downright personal insults on this site. I have an opinion, so do others. So what. Seriously have now had enough, no BS. Please delete my account, I have that right. I shall go elsewhere. Thankyou.

{Ed025's Note - we are actually of similar age ktf, but if you take what i said as an insult then you are more fickle than i thought mate, if you dont want to post anymore then just dont log in i would suggest..

3.) 07 Oct 2018 01:54:50
Well said ED.

When we play badly we have to listen to all the 'doom and gloom' merchants come on and pillory THEIR side but you will also see the rose tints giving fair criticism of the players, the tactics and the manager.

Is it unfair to expect then, when we play well, that the doom and gloom have the decency, the love of THEIR team to tell them that they played well. Saying you support them isn't saying they played well. I'm not even asking for them to change their miserable outlook on the team but to just be pleased and SUPPORT THEIR team

Regarding the personal insults I don't believe saying someone is all 'doom and gloom' is anywhere near as bad as calling people sycophants or that Bill Kenwright has lost his marbles, or running down Silva's ability all the time which you have no problem doing.

KTF - you are about the same age as me, maybe one or two years older but at our age irrelevant. If you can't take constructive crtticism when you are quite happy to dish out your own, I would say, non constructive tripe, then I agree - maybe you should stay away from this site.

4.) 07 Oct 2018 02:04:43
? Someone needs to understand that RESPECT isn't a right, it's something that's earned. And when someone is constantly negative they are going to attract critics.

5.) 07 Oct 2018 07:08:12
Thank goodness for that Ed 025 well said, some just don’t get it. Anen.

6.) 07 Oct 2018 09:56:36
kft grow up mate your 68ish and spitting dummies everywhere because people dnt agree with u? so because I was born in 89 you are a better supporter than me? how long you have supported the team is irrelevant if your not actually supporting the team you just picking hole in everything they do.

{Ed025's Note - thats a very fair point johny mate..

7.) 07 Oct 2018 12:32:47
What a day yesterday - really good 3 points away from home and plenty of signs that there is more to come. And to add the cherry to the cake, KTF announces that he is taking his relentless whinging elsewhere. superb!

8.) 07 Oct 2018 15:36:32
Bw2412, could not have put it better myself, post of the Day reply, well done mate, probs said what a lot of us thought.

9.) 07 Oct 2018 15:33:15
Well said Ed25, when we have a loss all sorts are posted, when we win and play well, it is still not enough for the doom merchants, they have to find fault in something, so if we are not to get carried away after a good performance, then why should it be right to get carried away after a loss by flogging the manager, selling and dropping players.

Some folk are content to slate everything if a poor performance or loss comes, yet if we play well get a good result, it is never enough, it is always we only won a game, so what, get behind the bloody team and give the manager a chance.

Have to say Ed25 is by far the best Ed on here, he understands our highs and lows, But I agree with Ed25, by all means have a go when we fail, but at least give the team and manager credit, when we get a win, instead of looking for cracks.

{Ed025's Note - some people just love to moan bignev, i believe in the club and what they are trying to do and know it wont happen overnight, we are not a quick fix and anyone expecting us to be challenging for honours shortly is just kidding themselves mate, we are heading in the right direction and we have good people in charge which leads me to believe that not only is the football entertaining but that we are on the way to being a force once again and im excited about the journey..



27 Sep 2018 02:59:47
I would like to see k dowell given a few starts now and maybe f hornby on the bench.




23 Sep 2018 23:05:37
I am frustrated like most of you but let's get things into perspective.
I enjoy watching us play now.
This has happened in a short space of time.
Right now that's enough for me
Time is an abstract concept.
Let's have patience instead.


{Ed025's Note - we are going to give someone a terrible hiding shortly pauly, we played some great stuff today and are good to watch now, take one or two of them chances first half and we win that game, we are on the way back and i know its all about results but i believe we are heading in the right direction mate..

1.) 24 Sep 2018 09:02:46
Agree with both of the above. It'd be doubly nice if that hiding came when we play that lot across the Park ;-p.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 18:50:02
Good reply Ed mate, people entitled to their opinions but too many doom merchants for me mate, got to give the guy time.

{Ed025's Note - a lot of other teams supporters are saying the same thing GB so its not blind faith, we are far from being the finished article but the entertainment value is great and i believe the results will come mate..

3.) 24 Sep 2018 19:37:15
So do I Ed, we had a great passion and pace in the first half against the Gooners so close to scoring as well, it will come good of that I have no doubt mate.



18 Aug 2018 17:29:12
Overall I'm very happy with our display today
There are new signings ready to come in and that will only strengthen us
Richarlison got hacked to death but still scored the winner
We look a different team from last season and the quality of Silva has shone through for me because there was only 1 player in the team who was new
For me.10/ 10 purely because of the fact it was the same players as last season.


1.) 18 Aug 2018 17:43:54
Agree Pauly. Silva is getting a very different tune out of them.
The de fense needs a settled partnership but that will come with time.
I think when Walcott has an off day, Richarlison will show up and vice versa which bodes well.

2.) 18 Aug 2018 18:05:29
Agree smit
If those 2 keep the energy then you're dead right
Also I can't wait to see Bernard and let me assure you . He is quality
Come on you blues.

3.) 18 Aug 2018 18:06:47
Thought Cenk played really well today.

4.) 18 Aug 2018 18:20:04
Guernsey he did mate but he needs a goal and he will get one
He will weigh in this season and I think he is a natural finisher but he needs to get selfish and stop thinking about the team
Do you get what I mean by that?
A main striker needs to have a selfish streak and if he gets that he will hit 30.

5.) 18 Aug 2018 18:20:43
Even the over critical said the same GB.

6.) 18 Aug 2018 19:28:15
The one person who had a bad game was the ref. They committed 20 fouls. Some much worse than Jags in the fact they were trying to hit the player and injure them whereas Jags was going for the ball. The ref should have booked earlier and sent someone off for some of the repeated fouling.

7.) 19 Aug 2018 07:35:00
Sorry that was meant to say even the over critical Paul Merson said the same about Cenk GB.

He is versatile across the front positions ed.


{Ed002's Note - He is effectively a LW the same as Richarlison - although as you say, he can play adequately in other positions.}

Haha what a belter of a surprise that is!
Apparently he was convinced by Silva and wants to link up with richarlison.

If it's true he said he'd rather play for Lyon then we should immediately look elsewhere.
We need to sign players with a desire to play for us!
Don't offer more money or higher wages, just find players that want to pull on the blue shirt.
I think this season will hinge on players who have a desire and willingness to play for Everton fc.
It's going to be a long, slow process to rebuild our great club and we need players who are committed through desire not money.
Just my opinion but we need to see 100% effort from players rather than players using us as a pay day or stepping stone.


{Ed025's Note - i totally agree pauly mate..

I like to judge a new manager on his first signing.
Marco would be right up there with the best of them if he pulls this one off.
He is quality and will only get better wblue2.
If he identifies the key positions that we need strengthening and hopefully plays only 1 defensive midfielder then I will be a happy blue.

Sorry degsy but my statement is very valid.
Yes he had injuries but like I said 3/ 4 good games then disappeared and didn't look interested.
Not the sign of a great. Just look at Gerrard across the park. He too had many injuries and played in awful team but dragged that team by the scruff of its neck and never disappeared.

Barkley had ample time at Everton (injury free) to establish himself as a consistent performer.
He failed every time.
It makes no difference to me if a player needs help getting dressed in the morning or has the ability to understand quantum physics.
When he pulls that blue shirt on I want to see a desire to push himself constantly for the better of the team and more importantly to become consistent in his performances.
Unfortunately Barkley never once looked like he could do this.
3/ 4 great games followed by 5/ 6 stinkers.
He will do the same at Chelsea and they will eventually grow tired of him.
He was coached properly at Everton and he was given a platform to perform. He can't have any gripe really.
He's scored 2 tap ins and a long range effort that I think he scuffed and got lucky with.
John stones left purely for the money. Don't kid yourself with any other fact.
I liked stones but Martinez didn't have the players around him that could cope with the style of play he wanted to implement and therefore stones ran into trouble at times and took a fair bit of blame.
I would've loved to have kept both players but let's be realistic about Barkley. He simply wasn't consistent enough for a team that has ambitions of the top 4.
At Chelsea he is a part player. At Everton we needed him to be a star player and that simply isn't in his locker.

Spot on ed. Totally agree.
The big question though is just who do we actually buy as a CF?
We need to unearth an unknown gem in my opinion.
That's the only way I can see us getting value for money.
It's a big ask I know but I really believe that's our way forward.
We would have to make a massive bid for any big name goalscorer and let's be honest here we can't offer European football just yet so it would be hard to convince an established name.
We shouldn't be looking at giroud either.
We should look to our scouting network to find the next big goal machine and get him at a reasonable price.


{Ed025's Note - its a tough one pauly, i wanted arnautovic when he left stoke but of course that ship has sailed and he looks chelse bound im hearing, if want a big name then he will of course cost top dollar and even though moshiri is prepared to splash the cash its still a big ask, we may need brands to weave some of his magic mate and as you say get us the next big thing...well heres hoping..

That's true ed and tbh I thought he was going to book gana.
I still think the smalling tackle from behind would be been a straight red at any other ground.
I'm keeping positive about the result though because we dominated at times in the second half but the referee determined the game and I'm tired of being on the receiving end of such bad decisions.
Arsenal and man Utd have resulted in losses and I just want to see us win those games rather than just have a good performance ya know? I'm happy we did enough in both games but it still goes down as failing against the so called top 6.
I honestly believe we will crash that party soon though so I'm trying hard to keep my patience.
Gomes is going to be one of our greats in my opinion and we need to get in first when he comes up for sale.


{Ed025's Note - martial played very well pauly but for me gomes was the best player on that pitch, he is a superb player and as you say i hope we have first dibs on him mate, we need a quality CF in january and then im sure we will be giving the bigger teams a hard game..

Tbh smit I thought smalling shouldve walked in the first half.
For me that was a studs up tackle from behind and how he never got a second booking for the pen is mistifying.
We gave them too much space again and we got overun.
We had the chances to win that game but as soon as he gave that pen to them it was an uphill struggle.
The positive is we kept fighting till the end and deserved at least a point.
We will get there though.


{Ed025's Note - we will get there pauly, on the first issue he could have sent gana off for exactly the same thing (even though we know he got the ball) so we cant really complain mate..
