Zouma on loan still to be announced.




28 Jun 2017 09:36:16
My understanding is that on 1st July Everton we have a press conference with Pickford, Klassen, the boy Henry along with Michael Keane and cuca Martina
Both being announced and should all be present. They were hopefully Sandro would be present but with the U 21
Final the night before he will be given a few days after but will then be announced as Real Madrid left it to late.
Following this Gylfi will sign by middle of July leaving our hunt for another striker and centre midfielder on permanent deals and a winger type player on a loan deal.
James McCarthy is going and good chance now ross is staying signing a 4 year deal.


1.) 28 Jun 2017 10:43:26
you add lucas lima to that list i am a happy blue man. hope we sign him, give it a year and maybe he can persuade neymar to join the revolution.

2.) 28 Jun 2017 11:18:19
We'll need the revenue from Champions League football and our shiny new stadium before we can pay superstar wages - but we're heading in the right direction boys!

3.) 28 Jun 2017 11:48:27
Stublue, I hope your correct with that post.

Just one thing, after all them names are signed we are still looking for a centre midfielder? Really?

After signing Klaassen, Glyfi and Barkley signing a new contract. Maybe its defensive midfielders your talking about. Where we have Schneiderlin, Gana, Davies, Barry almost certain staying. Along with Barkley and Klaassen who can play there. Not to mention McCarthy and Besic who may remain also.

Leaving McCarthy and Besic out that leaves 7 players for 4 positions. I know with Europe we will need them but if McCarthy or Besic stays that means we could have 8 or 9 for two positions and we might be buying another?

I'm not saying your wrong just surprised. I'm obviously happy with what the club are doing and they know best. I'm just observing.

4.) 28 Jun 2017 12:40:21
In fairness NBTB I wouldn't mind us looking for another strong, commanding centre mid.
RB doesn't have a true position and but can play there.
Klaasen can play there but plays more off the striker, and is best utilised Theresa he scores a hatful of goals.
Gaz baz, for all his tactical nouse, for me is a spent force, his legs are gone and I can't see him playing that much. maybe to just close out games.
I think Jimmy mac will go, the Celtic fan ed on here has said he wants to go north of the border and would be a perfect replacement for Scott Brown. besic will be sold i think, to many injuries.
This leaves us gana, Davies and Morgan as true centre mids, so personally i wouldn't mind a new recruit especially with Europa league as well as the prem and the cups.

5.) 28 Jun 2017 12:44:21
Maybe we ain't buying any strikers and are just going to play a 3, 7 formation.

6.) 28 Jun 2017 13:04:46
Maybe Evertonfanatic. I know Barry is more than likely on his last season but with Europe he will no doubt be used.

I guess it all depends on what formation is used. If 2 centre midfielders are used then we seem covered. Might be three used then maybe need another.

I know Klaassen and Barkley are not proper centre midfielders but the point was we wouldn't be stuck. If it so happens Davies, Schneiderlin, Gana or Barry get injured then in that occasion Barkley or Klaassen could be used.

Attacking midfielder will be one maybe two positions. If we sign Gylfi that means 3 for 2 at most positions.

We are not light in attacking or centre midfield positions provided Barkley or Gylfi signs. But I guess another would do no harm.

I'd be happier with a centre back, right back or even left back before another defensive or attacking midfielder. I'd sooner have a striker too.

I'm obviously not in the know or employed by a premiership club. Let the professionals at it. I'm just having the banter.

7.) 28 Jun 2017 13:44:57
Nice one Smit666. If McCarthy and Besic stay we could just go with a formation of 10 midfiedlers! Lookman and Kev on the wings then 7 centre midfielders.

8.) 28 Jun 2017 14:55:08
Dont think Tom D is best used as a def midfielder.
In reality only Gana, Morgan and Barry are true def centre mids.

As said previously, can see Jimmy Mc going, possibly Besic as well.

Ross is not a def mid as he does not have the engine, discipline or tackling ability. And i don't think Davy K kas been bought for that role.
So a fourth centre mid player sounds sensible to me.

9.) 28 Jun 2017 15:32:06
Fair enough. We have only 1 properly recognised right back and 1 left back with little or no cover. 3 centre backs with two in their mid 30's. When Lukaku leaves we will be left with no properly recognised unless one is signed.

Imho I'd rather get bodies for these positions before I'd add another midfielder.

But what do I know. As always Walsh and Koeman know best and I never had anything but praise for them so far. Can't see that changing for some time yet either.

10.) 28 Jun 2017 17:55:42
think we're getting Martina as cover for right back, Kenny will get game time too.
You are right in that we do need a left back,2 centre backs ( Keane yes and maybe this Uruguayan kid were looking into ) and a couple of strikers.
Obviously were getting sandro, rumour has it were looking at mousse dembele from Celtic and to be honest I've got a feeling that looking at another one from belgium.
We're going to be a lot lot stronger than last year.

11.) 28 Jun 2017 19:47:25
Black eyed Peas 'I got a feelin' next season is going to be a good, good season. We're already stronger with the squad we have now. In 10 weeks we will be even stronger again. Bring on next season.

12.) 28 Jun 2017 21:14:33
Ten midfielders all linking arms in a new defensive formation across the pitch! Genius!

13.) 28 Jun 2017 21:28:19
Southern Toffee we should use 9 and have Oumar Niasse as our defender because he is chuffin useless as an attacker.

14.) 28 Jun 2017 22:21:54
I reading these posts thinking why have we spent 6 million a year on Koeman and he is not coming up with genius tactics like this.

15.) 29 Jun 2017 07:12:50
just to clarify my JOKE yesterday that 12 people gave the thunbs down too is that because you don't want efc to buy lucas lima or becasue you seriously don't think we should be in for neymar first off i know neymar is beyond our ability to acquire it was a comment made on the basis of being excited that right now seems anything is poss (except for that obviously ) because currently neymars best mate is being touted as joining some pretty terrible teams across europe and is available for a snip i have heard and we have sounded out the poss. of a deal and Barcelona his preferred destination has ruled out a move for the guy. its a good time to be an evertonian its cool to dream just not on here apparantly.

16.) 29 Jun 2017 11:03:51
Chill out Floats you only got 6 thumbs down not 12, Grumpy Toffee once again the bringer of good news.

17.) 29 Jun 2017 13:53:16
thnx grump feel a lot better now lol.



31 Aug 2016 22:36:24
This makes me laugh.7 Jun 2016 - Moussa Sissoko has told Rafa Benitez he wants to leave Newcastle. Moussa Sissoko says he wants to leave Newcastle and is desperate to join "the beautiful Arsenal". And the dream scenario is to follow in the footsteps of his French idols at Arsenal - "the club of my heart".


1.) 31 Aug 2016 23:03:22
We just cost Spurs millions.



30 Aug 2016 23:25:13
I understand we will sign Brahimi which I think is a great signing. Kone bid rejected £20m but Sunderland know he will go and may request Kev Miralles in exchange, Moyes desperate for players and may go for Darren Gibson on loan. Still a chance another player may come on loan, Bony?


1.) 30 Aug 2016 23:52:39
No way will miralas leave. he's playing well this season and seems to have his hunger back . I'd get rid of mcgeedy and Lennon first.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 06:36:24
Give the ncgeady, lennon, and lone or niasse.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 07:13:15
And I'm not sure Mirallas would relish the chance to go to Sunderland either.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 07:41:14
I hope to God he does not go. Although he enjoyed playing under Moyes. when he had his best time with us unlike under Martinez. let's hope his improved form reflects his feelings towards Koeman.

5.) 31 Aug 2016 08:57:33
All the noises Koeman has been making would suggest he rates Mirallas quite highly and the player seems to have responded well to the new manager. No way will he be heading to Sunderland.

6.) 31 Aug 2016 14:29:53
No chance kev is leaving.



15 Jun 2016 16:11:25
On the subject of goalkeepers I think a few are available.
Stephen Mandanda is on a free having left Marseille, good experience in Europe etc.
Asmir Begovic should leave Chelsea, premier league experience and was very good at Stoke. Shouldn't be more than £10m
JASPER CILLESSEN From Ajax has been linked in the past.
Bernd Leno from Leverkusen is highly rated and may fancy a go at premier league.
Mattia Perin from Genoa, Italy number 2 GK behind Buffon and agent talking about him moving.
Just a few I would consider as better than what we have and all reasonably priced and better than KRUL.


1.) 15 Jun 2016 16:31:16
Either Leno or Perin would be great shouts for us.

2.) 15 Jun 2016 17:33:32
I still don't understand why we didn't go for Butland when he was leaving Birmingham.

3.) 15 Jun 2016 18:29:38
Swiss keepr Yann Sommer looks pretty good so far, plays for Monchengladbach. Might be worth a look.

4.) 16 Jun 2016 00:54:16
Not sure of the name, but the No 2 keeper from PSG, has been on loan to villareal and kept 15 clean sheets last season, anyone know the name, and is he on the market?

I was looking at this Lukaku situation with Inter wanting a cheap loan deal.
With us getting £5m from any deal would it be a stupid idea to try and bring him back to our great club?
We still haven't replaced him since he left so why not just buy him back, with a more attacking and creative team that we have now he will score goals I'm sure of that.


{Ed002's Note - Lukaku won't be moving to Everton.}

1.) 27 Jun 2019 12:04:54
Ha. I know that. Rumour has its Inter Milan. I was asking that apparently there is a sell on fee we would be due if he was to be sold within the next 2 seasons.

{Ed002's Note - I have already answered that.}

2.) 27 Jun 2019 12:20:43
Ha. Sorry. I replied to the wrong thread. That'll teach me first not reading the full post.



09 Aug 2018 14:48:06
So we know Bernard looks done and dusted.
Mina had medical so I believe will sign.
I think other one from Barcelona Andre Gomes may well sign on loan.
But I want to know what the unexpected, out of the blue, I never expected that signing will be at 16.50 that surprises us all!

Any thought?


{Ed002's Note - It wouldn't be unexpected or out of the blue if any of us told you would it?}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 14:52:45
If Mina or Zouma signs then anything else is a bonus.

{Ed025's Note - i agree smit..

2.) 09 Aug 2018 14:52:24
nice one ed.



06 Aug 2018 19:45:35
What do you think about going for mina and Lascelles? We clearly need 2 CB and I think they could be a great partnership both strong, quick, can play from the back and Lascelles is a leader.
Mina apparently returned from holiday and to Barcelona today so he will move soon just hope it's to the mighty toffees.
Newcastle players all rebelling and refusing to do media stuff due to unpaid bonus so Lascelles could be unsettled.
I think out of all CB linked they look the best 2 and the best partnership.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 19:56:17
They're the two I want the most, they could form a great partnership and both got great sell on potential if we have to sell some day.
Offer Keane and 20m for Lascelles.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 19:57:10
Lascelles would be number one for me, then Either Mina or Mee as the second. Agree we need two.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 20:09:51
From what I have read we are going for Mina but then again if you believe what you read then so is every other man and his dog. We have supposedly a two man team of the best available in Brands and Silva, Brands I know has excellent contacts all over and is well in with one of the best agents around (apparently) . I also believe it was mainly Brands recommendation that we went for Silva, so far so good. What does baffle me is why our central defence was No 1 on the priority list. The other thing is we pay 40 mill for Richarleson (spelling) and don't seemingly flinch but then go for Mina and apparently flinch on paying the asking price. As I say baffling.

{Ed002's Note -
It was not Brands recommendation.}

4.) 06 Aug 2018 20:51:37
I stand corrected Ed002, I thought I read a quote somewhere but obviously mistaken, Thank you. I will not ask but can but wonder.

{Ed002's Note - I have probably mentioned it before, but it was Jorge Mendes - who would have submitted a bill.}



31 Aug 2016 11:20:54
Apparently Isco is available on loan. Real don't want him to go to a rival be it domestic or champions league. Malaga, Chelsea and Everton interested!




25 Jun 2016 13:31:55
The mighty Toffees have lost some experienced players this summer. I have seen talk of who should replace Howard but who should we bring in to replace the others?
Hibbett has gone so a new right back probably as back up to Seamus or will it be a young player we already have?
Pienaar has gone, Osman gone who should we try and get to replace them?


1.) 25 Jun 2016 13:42:53
The released players where released by our previous manager, bit I hope that RK will maybe consider givimg a 12 month contract to Osman as I believe he still has a lot to give. He was very underused last season, stll can be good from the bench.

2.) 25 Jun 2016 14:22:25
Osman has been a great servant but I don't think giving him a 12 month contract benefits anyone but himself. id prefer to sign someone in his spot, who will be a first teamed and not a impact substitute.

3.) 25 Jun 2016 14:56:44
Osman and Pienaar are well past it! We need to look forward and let Koeman stamp his authority on the squad.

4.) 25 Jun 2016 20:54:00
Everyone knows I am Osman's biggest fan. However I would hope we have some quality attacking forwards lined up to join us. Having said that, I do agree that pace was never Osman's strong point but a quick touch here and there to bring others into attacking play was his forte. He can still do that to a degree but it would have to be as a last resort and he really cannot be considered first team starter now. My problem is that we allegedly have all this money and I do not know of good attacking midfielders who would want to come to Goodison. As we all know 13 million can buy an inadequate player so where do we find all these players we need. My hopes for this season aspire to no higher than mid table. I hope I am wrong.

5.) 26 Jun 2016 08:11:28
Ever the optimist Degsy. There is a new dawn at Everton and we already have some good attacking players in Delboy and Ross. Fitness and stamina was clearly an issue with the previous regime so let's have a look at how we shape up against Spurs first game before making predications. The board and manager will have targets in mind but also are still looking to recruit a DoF who will be the man responsible for recruitment so patience is required.

At the end of last season I saw a report about how villa failed etc. this gueye or I think they call him gana had very good stats for breaking up play, and general defencive midfield play was second in the premier league and on Kante was better (only just) they basically said 11 gana's in the team and they would have been ok.

Morning bw enjoy Thailand. I’m not at all concerned with the signing be late in the window. Last season we did mostly of our business very early and signed a handful of players within the first couple of weeks of the window and our season was a shambles, players had weeks to settle in and manager to work with them and we could stop conceding goals.
I think where we are as a club will be battling for signing s with established champions league teams and missing out on some but winning the race for others. Personally I’m happy with that. as long as we do sign a few quality players today!

Windsor we are all just having a laugh mate. Like he was when he posted the message how gutted he was to be playing a team like Everton on the first day rather than a big club.
It’s all just jokes and banter.

Always good when your greatest ever player is actually a West Brom fan.
I really don’t think you need to teach us your songs, go on the wolves page and teach your own fans, most of them won’t have been to a game before and are glory hunting after promotion.
It’s clear this game is more important to you and for us it’s yet another game in the top division.
Boing boing.

Jet ski- I’m guessing you wanted an away fixture so you can get out of that dump called Wolverhampton they try and call a city.
I promise you that playing a Portugal reserves team on the opening day is far more disappointing for us.
And the 100,000 on the streets after promotion? I walked through wolves a few weeks ago and I’d say you have 100,000 living on the street all the time so what changed?
Anyway enjoy your season and look forward to the opening game and hearing your songs, what is it? Boing boing.

Can anyone let me know what happened with the reports at the start of the summer. Problems at the club between players with Niasse being the problem and Tom Davies being very unhappy?
Would keeping Niasse be a problem for other players or was it all BS?
