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.

One word

Prozac.


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.

I know we are all looking for those star quality signings and we are looking for brands/ Silva to unearth these future gems and sell certain players who have underachieved but in reality I don't think that will be the case.
I would prefer to see just what they can do with our current squad.
I believe there are players at our club who have the potential to become part of a great team.
We have all moaned about the managers we have had and their style of play.
We have moaned how players were out of position and that tactics didn't suit their qualities.
We have moaned that certain players were overlooked and wasted yet let's face it we were very optimistic with the signings we made just over a year ago.
I personally would like to see just how good the brands/ Silva team actually are by working with this squad.
Surely a managers skills and attributes are better displayed by turning an underachieving squad into a team that can actually play football?
If brands/ Silva have the qualities and ideas that we need at our club then what better way to prove themselves than by working (for now) with the squad we already have?
We can't become a club that sells 20/ 30m players after 1 season that involved 3 managers, then spend another 100m hoping that we find the formula.
Also this would place less pressure on the management and place more emphasis on the players abilities and attitude.
If by January he needs changes then so be it but at least we Would have a clear indication of the management's intentions/ tactics and also the players attitude towards them.

1.) 17 Jul 2018 15:02:27
I'm with you on that Pauly, unless the management team have already identified specific target areas that they want to address then i would not be too distraught if we did not sign any new players.


2.) 17 Jul 2018 15:25:40
There's obviously some good players in the squad and some great prospects but to move on and I think to compete with the bigger teams we need to spend. Think they have identified targets and a lot of that seems to be concerning the left side. Without going for this, the squad is really unbalanced imo.


3.) 17 Jul 2018 17:24:36
Sa90 I think more new faces puts us in another transition period and if they don't hit the floor running then more pressure is on the players and management.
We have players that have bedded in now, good or bad.
The opportunity is there for us this season to find out for sure if these players can be utilized by a new manager with different tactics and a new way of thinking.
I just think we need patience rather than ask moshiri to splash the cash again.
You don't keep throwing money at a problem. You find a solution.
I understand every Evertonian wants to see repeated investment and big star names but you have to build a steady foundation before you add the luxuries.
Silva and brands have been employed to do just that. Let's see how they go before the cash is splashed.
If the same thing as last summer was to happen again we Would have an inflated squad and the pressure on the new signings would be unbearable.
Let's face it 2 bad displays and the crowd will turn on them.
Give the management and board time to see the current squad in competitive action before big money is spent.
We need stability and support for our club and us fans need patience and understanding.


4.) 17 Jul 2018 18:52:55
Not recruiting is a mistake. It is simple. If you stay static while everyone else around you improves then you fall behind. We need to address certain key areas and no manager in the world no matter how good they are can turn back the clock on baines and jags careers. As for that williams last year was awful at the best of times. We need to strengthen our defense before we do anything.


5.) 17 Jul 2018 19:01:58
Blue ray I'm not saying no investment. I'm saying don't splash the cash all over the team.
Minimal investment on key areas is needed unless there's something better at the club.
Jags Baines and Williams yes I agree needs to be strengthened but don't be disappointed if they're not big names or big money signings.

22-0
Enjoy it
Don't worry about the opposition
It's pre season and we clearly have our shooting boots on
Why pick it to bits?
If we won 3-0 or conceded a couple of goals then people would say " we should've beat them by 20 odd goals! It's a pub team" etc etc.
Enjoy the fact the team did what they were expected to do.
I'm sure the games will get tougher and we will respond accordingly.
Some people will always find fault but maybe it's because they've forgotton how to enjoy watching Everton play football.
Just sit back, stop moaning, stop playing the analyst, stop playing manager, just relax and be a fan again.
22-0. I'm happy.

Pauly

1.) 15 Jul 2018 12:31:37
The main point is that regardless of who we are playing, it instills a winning mentality from the very beginning.


2.) 15 Jul 2018 13:09:17
Exactly grumpy.
Well said mate.


3.) 15 Jul 2018 13:32:11
I wouldn't read anything into this match at all. 22-0 was funny but really irrelevant. Win, lose or draw, preseason games are about fitness and trying new tactics. I remember a preseason a few years ago where we were winning every game against big clubs and thought we would have a sensational season, but we didn't. It's as though preseason form just doesn't make a single bit of difference.

The only real bit of information I'd take from this match was Sandro. Goals for fun by all positions yet Sandro didn't bag one. I really don't want to sound abusive towards him or jump on any 'player out bandwagon' but when we signed him last summer there was so much hype, what has gone wrong?


4.) 15 Jul 2018 15:13:46
Did he have any assists?


5.) 15 Jul 2018 19:19:00
Yes smitt he had a couple I think.

Hearing a rumour that Celtic have accepted £22.6m for Tierney and he travels down on Tuesday.
Not sure on this one but the lad who's told me is usually there or thereabouts.
Would be a fantastic piece of business.

Pauly

{Ed002's Note - He is teasing you.}


1.) 01 Jul 2018 14:52:48
Tierney, may or may not be the real deal, but the standard of player he has faced in the scotish prem, bears no conparison to what he would face in the english top flight.
So if we are to go for him it should be with no more than 10m up frount with the rest based on add ons, Celtic aside, the rest of the scotish prem would have it all on to get a mid table finish in the championship, and that is the only level this boy has faced.

{Ed001's Note - he plays in the Champions League every season. Seriously you are making yourself look a little silly with these kind of comments.}


2.) 01 Jul 2018 15:50:03
Sometimes you watch a player and you can just see it, Rooney at 14, sessegnon at 17 or whatever he is, being two of them. This is what this lad is. Watch him and then make a sensible decision about how much you would pay.


3.) 01 Jul 2018 16:03:41
Yet we got Graeme Sharpe, Gary Naysmith, Duncan Ferguson, David Weir, Richard Gough, James McFadden and Steven Naismith but to name a few. No complaints about them coming from Scottish football. Tierney is quality.


4.) 02 Jul 2018 02:39:15
He is comparable In the Scottish side with Robertson can't see RS complaining.


5.) 02 Jul 2018 04:57:49
I'd take him in a heartbeat. He's exactly the sort of player we need. Young, ready to learn and hungry for success.


6.) 02 Jul 2018 09:24:34
Didn't he play in qualifier for Scotland v England and was "MOM" up against premier league players. Some times the big fish in a little pond really is a big fish ie Coleman.


7.) 02 Jul 2018 09:53:19
Thanks ed02. I was clinging on to the hope more than anything else.
It did seem a bit flaky as far as rumours go.
I have to say though that this lad is quality.
I have always said judge a manager on his first signing.
If he pulls this one off then I hope it's a sign of things to come as I believe this kid would be great value even at 30m in the current climate of the transfer market.
We get the press linking us with everyone due to the world cup and new manager but this one seems like we have concrete interest and I believe we have a chance of pulling this off.
BR has already stated it would hard to keep him if Celtic received a big bid.
I also wish the new manager, DOF and all the squad, all the very best for this new season and era.
Let's get behind them from minute 1 and show our support for our club like the real passionate Evertonians that we are and let's help them build confidence.
COYB.


8.) 02 Jul 2018 10:51:32
Regardless of what Rodgers says mate, the final say lies with the player. And he has stated more than once on the back of being linked to atl. madrid and man utd that he has no intentions of leaving celtic even for more money. He just recently signed a 6 year deal with the club he supports and at the age of just 21 won't leave anytime soon. There would be an uproar among Celtic fans if the club tried to push him out against his wishes.


9.) 02 Jul 2018 16:21:22
edoo1, The only thing silly, would be to play up frount 25m, for a player who has built his reputation against players who would strugle to get a place in an english 3rd division side.

{Ed001's Note - you really are ignorant.}

Arsenal and Chelsea will both look beyond Fonseca.
Fonseca is going to be our new boss.
We can compete with wages and transfer budget.
Of the 3 clubs we are a more attractive proposition.
Arsenal will be in freefall and will not risk anything other than a high profile boss.
I think Enrique or ancellotti.
Chelsea will go for Enrique or Wenger.
Fonseca is sensible and knows he will have time to build at Everton.

Pauly

1.) 20 Apr 2018 16:23:51
Ideally you would not want to be the next man in at Arsenal, look what happened at Man U when Fergi went. Always best to come in after the next man. That way he takes all the flack, and you have a ready made excuse as to why your teams not as good as the one he left.


2.) 20 Apr 2018 16:39:54
Fergus won the league as a goodbye and good luck to the next man. Arsenal a little different.


3.) 20 Apr 2018 18:34:16
Fergie! Blast these wooden fingers.


 

 

15 Apr 2018 15:39:11
I've just read the news about Grumpy.
Thoughts and prayers are with his family.
A true blue.
I will definitely miss locking horns with him but I am sure he knew we are Evertonians through and through and all wanted the same thing for our club.
He fought on to the end and that shows all you need to know about the man's character.
RIP brother.

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.

I said a couple of days ago this was happening. The details were a bit wide of the mark on my part but this is a very strong rumour that seems to be gathering pace.
Would be a great signing.

It's a tough one with niasse.
We all think he's not good enough but he scores important goals, changes games and shows more heart and fight than most players in our squad.
If we had 4 players last season that showed the fight he did how different would it have been?
I would personally keep him.
He's a problem for defenders and he can score.
I personally would use him for the last 20 mins of every game regardless of the scoreline.
Let's face it when he comes on he rarely disappoints.
His attitude is probably the best I have seen from a player in 10 yrs.

Pauly

{Ed025's Note - i agree with that pauly..
