Ed, Do we get anything from the Deulofeu sale from Barcelona to Watford? Not sure if we had a sell on clause.

Toffee ace

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe so.}

1.) 11 Jun 2018 17:35:15
Thanks Ed.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 20:52:37
We DO indeed get something from Deulofeu's sale. It was in the original agreement that should Barcelona buy him back he had to be in the 1st team squad for a year. If he was subsequently sold AFTER that season Everton receive a percentage of the sell on fee. That was from Martinez at the time of the initial deal.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 01:41:45
We get to laugh at Watford.

Question for Ed 002. You mentioned that SA and CS were the choice of Walsh, so he's had his way on that one. Has this caused a shift in transfer priority as we've been led to believe from Koemans time that we needed a striker and a left sided defender? And do you know of any players in particular that we are pursuing as all we seem to see are random names in the media.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - It won't change anything - the club need to get out of where they are now. January may well see Sandro Ramirez return to Spain with Valencia or Espanyol and could see Ross Barkley depart as well. The club are looking at trying to get a deal for Theo Walcott (F) - he is wanted by Sam Allardyce and his time at Arsenal is drawing to a close as he is doing no more than stagnating now, so it makes sense. Whether it will to him or not I don't know. Richmond Boakye (S) is a player Walsh is keen on and I assume he would have discussed him with SA by now - so an approach is not out of the question. Ezri Konsa (CB) is a youngster who thinks he can walk in to any EPL first team - we will see if Everton maintain that interest or if SA would prefer a more humble addition. Everton will be looking for a new lift back and if they want a slight risk then I expect Luke Shaw will be available. Steve Walsh had sent a scout to watch Marcel Halstenberg but it is hard to see him being available in January nor being interested in a move to a club without Champions League prospects. Sam Allardyce will no doubt have some ideas as well.}

1.) 06 Dec 2017 15:25:52
Great reply ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

2.) 06 Dec 2017 15:40:56
Thank you Ed002. Interesting read.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 15:45:02
Would Sandro be a loan or permanent to your knowledge, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - They would look for a loan to buy I would think.}

4.) 06 Dec 2017 15:50:07
hi ed what are the chances of Shaw on a loan? I suspect ManU would want to get a permanent transfer if possible just wondering if a loan with reasonably fee would be considered.

{Ed002's Note - They will look to sell if they can - I think a loan less likely. There will be flurry of left-backs moving in the coming months and they won't want to end up stuck.}

5.) 06 Dec 2017 16:39:50
Could you see mirallas leave ed? Cheers mate.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect in the summer.}

6.) 06 Dec 2017 18:05:00
Wow. Cracking info Ed 002. Much appreciated.

7.) 06 Dec 2017 19:02:34
Fantastic reply ed, could you see Schneiderlin or Klassen leaving too in January or the summer? Seem neither Klassen or Sandro are rated highly at the club.

{Ed002's Note - The summer would be more likely.}

8.) 06 Dec 2017 20:06:09
Thanks for the reply ed.

{Ed002's Note - you are welcome.}

9.) 06 Dec 2017 21:08:06
Hi ed I never heard of richmond boakye is this lad any good seen YouTube videos of him but they can make average players look world beaters.

{Ed002's Note - a lot of clubs have taken a look but nobody is biting which may say a bit.}

10.) 07 Dec 2017 07:25:40
Boakye could be an amazing signing if he can adapt to the Premier League, which is always the million dollar question!
Could be a pacy combination up front with Bolasie which definitely wouldn’t allow teams to settle when we break!

Let’s see what happens.

11.) 08 Dec 2017 07:51:36
Think we need to see what will be. My immediate concern is Sunday and the fear we may need to wait a while for another 3 bus's.



05 Jan 2017 13:48:52
Look an confirmed. 4.5 year deal.

Toffee ace



01 Jan 2017 17:09:24
31 days to recruit. Hopefully a lot of prep has already been done and we won't have to wait until the last day to get deals over the line. Everyone has an opinion on where we need to strengthen but for me the priority has to be an attacking midfielder who has a bit of craft.

We need someone who can see a pass (forward) and not be tempted to turn around and pass backward. Someone who can weigh in with a few goals, who can strike from distance, a player who just wants to score or be part of a goal scoring move.

We have a 25 goal a season striker, but after that there is no one who can get near to double figures. This is sub standard for any team with European aspirations.

So I would be really happy with any new signings that can share the burden of goal scoring with Lukaku or any player that can make us more relentless in an attacking threat.

Hopefully over the next month we will see what Koeman, with the help of our DOF can achieve to make us a team that shows more going forward. Whilst of course not neglecting the back.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - Lookman will be a good addition TA. There is a CB potentially on the cards as I have mentioned and an enquiry has been made recently about Nicolas Pepe (which implies a Gerard Deulofeu departure) but there is much interest in Pepe with Lyon and Newcastle both looking for a January deal.}

1.) 01 Jan 2017 17:42:22
This is what annoys me everyone saying we need a better creative midfielder barkley is that player but unfortunately every time he breaks forward he only has lukaku to pass to. Gerrard is right when he says our own fans our ruining barkley.

2.) 01 Jan 2017 17:54:40
Thing is willy. Moyes didn't trust him, Martinez wasn't honest with him and Koeman is frustrated with him. So exactly what is it that these 3 managers failed to see that you see?

And if indeed he turns out to be the player you and Gerrard say he will be then brilliant. We have one homegrown number 10 and another for competition. Win win. Not so annoying now is it.

3.) 01 Jan 2017 18:04:47
Cheers for the info Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

4.) 01 Jan 2017 18:27:58
Toffee Ace I see where your coming from.

The thing for me is no wonder Barkley comes across as confused. Just read your 3 line summary of the managers he played under. And he's still only 23!

Enough to make anyone think twice about what they are doing and how to do it.

5.) 01 Jan 2017 18:28:17
Are we in for Memphis Depay?

6.) 01 Jan 2017 20:43:59
Toffee ace I think the 3 manages u mentioned have failed to see that there is no one to support rossi barkley.

7.) 01 Jan 2017 21:04:31
Very possibly Shakey. So would you support him with a creative midfielder and play Ross just behind Lukaku? I still think we need one.

8.) 02 Jan 2017 13:40:32
There is a great will here wanting Barclay to succeed because he is local but let's face it he has allways flattered to deceive time to get rid I feel.

9.) 02 Jan 2017 21:01:15
The main issue with Barkley is he is consistently played out of position. He is not and never will be a "No 10" he needs to be dropped deeper into midfield and creative players ahead of him for him to flourish. That's what all 3 managers have failed to do.

10.) 02 Jan 2017 23:51:42
Ross has got ability but no brain! He's too slow to recognise a pass. He simply does think quick enough for the prem.



31 Aug 2016 17:41:38
Jimmy Mac in talks with Sunderland and also palace and West Brom. According to SSN.

Pos jimy and gibbo goin. if only sissoko comes in that'll leave us a bit short. hope there's moreally than 1 centre mid coming. Still optimistic.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 19:02:19
McCarthy won't go anywhere unless we get someone else in for cover.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 19:31:11
And don't make it up. Everton in talks per SSN. Not Jimmy Mc
Big difference.

With Funes Mori sold, it doesn't leave many left footed players in the squad. Let's hope we get a few in as it was already a visible weakness of ours.

Toffee ace

1.) 22 Jun 2018 10:31:23
Panic not. Isn't Pickford left footed? 🤣.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 10:41:36
Yes good point.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 13:44:21
Toffee ace, I am left footed and been left back. Left back in the dressing room. I am 76 yrs so maybe my age against me.

4.) 22 Jun 2018 14:15:31
Funny enough Keen, same for me. Totally left sided, started with pace then progressively worked further back until told to jog on. I now need a late fitness test for walking football 😂.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 14:49:04
Wouldn't hold your breath just yet Keen17, Kenny Samson was roughly that age when we signed him lol.

6.) 22 Jun 2018 18:05:01
Keen would have you in the team you would give us 100% not like a lot overseas money grabbers lol.



18 Jun 2018 09:07:57
Well there's plenty of mention on here about who we should sign as we're watching the World Cup, but not much talk about one of the star performances of the competition so far - Gilfi Sigurdsson. He was outstanding against Argentina. Played the entire game just back from injury, looked the fittest guy there and his quality on the ball was exceptional. If we were to bid for a player of that caliber this window, we would have to add about another 20 mill to what we paid last summer for him.

What a player we have. Play him at number 10 please Marco. Don't waste him out on the wing.

Toffee ace

1.) 18 Jun 2018 10:58:04
also give him the number ten when rooney gets off.

2.) 18 Jun 2018 12:29:35
100% agree ace. He was brilliant and how lucky we are.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 15:06:29
Yeah, he was unfairly treated last year. Wooney shouldn't have been given a look in over GS.
The poor guy has been treated appallingly by fans and coaches.

He is a class act and we really need to play to his strengths as has our big star player. World class.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 05:33:37
Good shout Toffee ace, he was all over the pitch, outstanding performance, looking forward to seeing him back in the blue shirt next season.



20 Apr 2018 10:27:57
Wenger stepping down at the end of the season. I think that might make our search for a new manager more difficult.

Toffee ace

1.) 20 Apr 2018 10:45:17
I would be sure arsenal have a replacement lined up already . Here's hoping FM has people lined up to replace SA and his gang.



15 Mar 2018 13:56:27
A lot on here say that Klassen has not had a chance to adjust this season of which I am one. So a simple question.

Would you be happy to give him a run until the end of the season even if it would jeopardise results in the hope that he has a future with us?

Toffee ace

1.) 15 Mar 2018 14:25:07
if he only plays in away games it shouldn't really be a problem as SA doesn't put his best team out for them anyway.

2.) 15 Mar 2018 16:49:36
Totally agree with that. I think there's a couple that could be given a chance Ace.

3.) 15 Mar 2018 18:02:49
Listening to Allardyces press conference it doesn't sound like he'll even make the squad.

4.) 15 Mar 2018 18:46:03
Surely with Sigi out he might get some minutes off the bench regularly, if not starts? Although personally I'd like to see more appearances from Beni Banigime. He was great at times.

{Ed025's Note - i like beni too OHEFB..

5.) 15 Mar 2018 19:02:03
I actually think that despite his inexperience, he's better than most of what we have in that position. He's brave and enthusiastic, but watches the game like a hawk. His focus and attitude are excellent and come to think of it, I think he won an award for this last season. I'd love to see him as a wildcard in the derby, as I bet he'd rise to the challenge and dismantle their midfield. Bright future this one.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too mate..

6.) 15 Mar 2018 19:05:53
Against Stoke, Alardyce will move Rooney to central attacking midfield inbetween Walcott and Bolasie, Gueye DM with either Davis (the lad is a bit of a headless chicken at the moment and out of form) or and I dread this but suspect it will happen Schneiderlin.

7.) 15 Mar 2018 19:44:43
Think Walcott's out injured isn't he, ducks?

8.) 15 Mar 2018 20:22:54
Beningame all Day long for me, can put in a tackle and good at picking a pass out, baffling how he has been omitted after playing some decent games when called up.

9.) 15 Mar 2018 21:32:31
Could be right there on Walcott. Could play Kenny in front of Coleman.

10.) 15 Mar 2018 23:34:26
Count me in on Beni as well and agree with Only's assessment of him.

With Sig out there should be no excuse in giving Klas his chance. However, we need to be patient with him to get up to speed and may not see the best of him for 2 or 3 games.

11.) 16 Mar 2018 06:10:24
We paid a lot of money for him and will only get a fraction back if we sell him now. Even without that cash incentive he deserves a chance. When he was at Ajax he was the heartbeat of the team and we sorely lack that at Everton at the moment.

12.) 16 Mar 2018 09:31:19
Im also part of the beni admirers list, looks like he reads the game and has great vision of what's going on ahead of him, lyon away stands out when he was our only good player.



27 Feb 2018 18:01:59
Just a thought on Premier League experience. Martinez, Koeman and SA all had Premier League experience and it never really did us any good. Whereas Morinho, Guardiola, Klopp and Konte seem to have done alright without having any when they came from other leagues.

Great info Ed002. It’s just a bit disappointing that there is nothing close. It’s a shorter window with the WC pinching it even shorter, although I understand the need to assess the squad first and then decide to move to improve.

But genuinely, thanks for the info that is clearly way more informative than the press. I don’t know what you do but you do it well and without blowing your own trumpet. Class Ed002.

It’ll be difficult to employ a replacement manager whils the other is on gardening leave. He’ll probably have strong cause for constructive dismissal and be due full compensation. Back to square one then.

Excellent post BJU. Always make plenty of sense. I’m the same. Not moaned once about lack of signings. I just want to see how the team shapes up on the park. Totally starved of any attacking football last season, so really need a fix of excitement. Can’t wait for the friendly on Saturday.

An excellent post there Degs. And yes, a bit of reinforcing on the left and we will have good balance. Also some pace at the back please and I’m one happy chappie.

The youngsters are a real reason for optimism given that they may well get some quality game time under Silva and a chance to kick on.

Just please please, don’t let Lookman move away.
