Ed, do you think Chelsea would do business on a permanent Zouma deal, or are they just loaning him until the time is right to use him?

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - At the moment it is a straight loan and given they are in the process of making changes at CB by next season he would likely end up as cover. If he were to ask to leave and decide on Everton as his next destination, then Everton need to make a proposal to Chelsea about buying him at the end of his loan in the summer. If the player wants to leave and the proposed deal satisfies all parties, then it may be an option - but there is some interest from elsewhere.}

Great info. Thanks Ed002.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 21:43:43
Pity about interest from elsewhere but I have to say not surprising. I knew the lad was a good player having watched him and then for us. I particularly like his runs out of defence. Seems to me our loans (apart from Digne) are were our best business.



07 Aug 2018 13:04:38
Ed002, you mentioned yesterday that Chelsea had pulled out of pursuing Bernard because he was a bit light weight for the league. Reports today are saying they could still come back in. Do you know if there is any truth to these reports? Or has their stance not changed.

Toffee ace

{Ed002's Note - I explained what I know.}

1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:16:57
Lightweight? Never understood this term. If that’s the case surely when the likes of Silva and Coutinho come to the Prem they were also “lightweight”? Players adapt.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 15:20:23
I agree BitterBlue. Was it Joninhio who played for Middlesbrough years ago who was about 6 stone soaking wet? There are plenty of examples of small players that made it in the premier league.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 17:07:30
They get more protection these days too. It’s more whether they can adapt to the culture and the climate - living in Ukraine should mean Liverpool will be cosmopolitan by comparison.

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.



06 Dec 2017 13:20:04
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.

Just seen the Calvert-Lewin interview on sky. If this guy can keep improving and obviously become more clinical then we will have one of the best strikers in the premier league. We will need to be careful with our summer window, that we don't make any signings that could stifle this.

I think we have a real winner in at our club in this guy.

Toffee ace

1.) 07 Apr 2019 12:30:17
He has improved a fair bit this season tbf but I still don’t think he is quite there yet to be are starting no9.

You have to ask yourself would he start for any of the top 6? . His lack of natural goal scoring ability/ strikers intuition is also slightly worrying as it’s generally something you have or you don’t.

2.) 07 Apr 2019 13:36:33
It's funny the way we all see player different me and my blue friends are split down the middle I like DCL and think we have a great player in the making but some just don't agree.

3.) 07 Apr 2019 14:05:47
He is still a kid. At 22 still too young to be certain. But in my view looks a great prospect that just needs time.

4.) 07 Apr 2019 14:33:53
27 mins in the game today and the kid has been awesome.

5.) 07 Apr 2019 16:00:53
Yeah he certainly was degsy! Absolutely immense today as well as Bernard! .

He’s certainly a talent and already a really good player but as I said earlier he needs to work really hard on his finishing and then he will be some player.

6.) 07 Apr 2019 16:48:29
Agree 100%. To be fair he is linking so well with our midfield and helping set up chances for them that I will forgive him for any minor inadequacies at the moment. Like I said, he is 22 and standing up against international mature center halves every game. It is no surprise to me that Tosun is on the bench and Niasse out on loan. I see a bright future there if he continues to improve the way he has so far. And yes the Richarlison/ Bernard wide pair is the best we have by far. Offensively and defensively.



18 Mar 2019 07:48:28
It's been said before and yesterday only enhanced the thought that we need a leader on the pitch. Shocking first half, excellent second half shows that the leadership comes from the team talk. This should have been sorted 20 minutes into the game by a leader on the pitch.

It's an observation not a moan, but it's plain that unless Silva has a half time team talk, nothing changes. And if we're poor in the second half then we're knackered just like the Newcastle game.

The purchase of a leader in the summer is number 1 priority for me. Because for all his endeavour Coleman doesn't cut the mustard (see what I did there) of captaincy.

Toffee ace

1.) 18 Mar 2019 09:46:17
Have to disagree about Coleman, for me he is definitely captain material. Unfortunately he leads by example and not so much vocally. We definitely need a vocal player to sort things out on the pitch but not necessarily be captain.

2.) 18 Mar 2019 15:01:24
I think mina was very vocal and did well organising the defense yeterday.



02 Mar 2019 07:48:48
I'd love a win, and my goodness we are due one. But I'd take a draw, as long as it's us that equalises. Otherwise it will feel like a loss.

I will celebrate a draw.

2.) 02 Mar 2019 20:04:52
Can only be a win for me Ace. We still have a slight chance at Europe, we haven't beaten them in 9 years and a win would potentially derail their title hopes. A draw is simply not good enough i'm afraid.

{Ed025's Note - i would bite your arm off for a draw BB..

3.) 02 Mar 2019 20:57:12
It wouldn't be the worst result in the world Ed, i'm just desperate for us to break this hoodoo they have over us. The rot started with them this season, hopefully by beating them that's where it'll end!

4.) 03 Mar 2019 09:52:45
I don’t disagree Bitterblue. I want a win as much as you. What I don’t want is to feel like we should of had something and got nothing, like the last game.



03 Feb 2019 07:34:29
I was watching the France Wales rugby on Friday. Wales (who are an excellent team) were rank awful in the first half and you could see on their faces that they needed their halftime inspiration (albeit a complete bollocking) from the coaching staff. Which evidently worked because they came out, with a plan and won the match.

My point is this. Players need coaching even during the game. So half time team talk when you are having a bad time of it is priceless. So what was said to our players half time yesterday? Because they came out worse! And didn't get any better. Our coaching staff failed to inspire and that for me is the most damning indictment for the manager. If he wants to save his job then he needs to make changes to his back room staff and find some motivators. Perhaps a simple "Dunc, the floor is yours" at halftime might help.

Ok. What's everyone's opinion on a return for Moyes? I was very vocal on the manner in which he left and that I wouldn't give him a chance again. But seeing how we have wasted every season since. And the fact he didn't have the kind of money that the others had, I'm softening to the possibility. I'm sick of conceding (yeah I know Degsy) , I would like the Goodison atmosphere that hasn't been there since he left back. He will have no excuses Of being under funded. Genuinely I'm torn and I know it's not on the table but what about you guys? What's your opinion?

Arteta for me. Club in his blood and has worked for Pep for the last few years.

8.) 27 Jan 2019 20:55:45
I would like to see Arteta manage a club before coming to us. Too risky. We need a proven manager if we are to challenge the top 6.

9.) 27 Jan 2019 22:10:29
I'm of the opinion that there are unique matches between clubs and managers. Eddie Howe being a current example.
A Moyes return would be seen a backwards step for probably 95% of supporters and forgiving the way he departed I would happily see him return in an interim role to get the team back to basics.
Silva is another example of the desire to have a foreign manager playing nice football but unfortunately for us he was the best we could attract.
We are a laughing stock with our irresponsible spending and appointment. Silva is not our future nor will he ever be.
Moyes may be spent as a Premier manager force but at least he has (had) a passion for our club. we could do worse!

{Ed0333's Note - you could do worse than Moyes, in fact you did with Alladyce. I agree with you’re irresponsible spending remark, for two seasons in a row you have bought badly (besides Richardson & Digne) and have spent a lot of money in the process. If I were brands I would revolutionize you’re scouting network, invest heavily in the academy oh and get rid of Silva pronto.

10.) 27 Jan 2019 23:39:01
Great post 0333.

11.) 28 Jan 2019 09:52:37
I believe despite the obvious inabilities of Mr Silva, that he is here for the duration. At the moment there are other Clubs cushioning us from relegation, that is one reason for my belief. That team on paper against Millwall should have been strong enough but there is just no urgency or motivation about them and that has to be down to the Manager and coaching staff. The fact that our hierarchy show no signs of recognising these failings has to be deeply worrying.

12.) 28 Jan 2019 11:20:32
you know what, if they do decide silva is not the man and sack before season end, I really wouldn't mind seeing moves until the end of the season, but further than that? you've got noooo chance.

13.) 28 Jan 2019 06:57:06
ed0333 r academy already has good players who need to be tested in the first team between now and summer. Hornby, Feeney, Beni, Evans, Astley, Ouzounidis, gibso, markelo, Bowler all deserve a chance and probably missed a few.

{Ed0333's Note - honestly mate I’d blood a few now. That’s gonna be more beneficial than a place or two up the table. If I was Silva I would seek assurances about my job and play some youngsters and build for the future.

14.) 28 Jan 2019 09:46:25
Not Moyes for me I think it would be a backwards step. Ed0333 out of interest why do you seem to dislike Silva so much? I'm currently on the fence about his appointment as he hasn't really had time to do much. He seems to be looking for answers but not getting results. After a bright start playing reasonably attractive football it seems we are in a slump. Not unusual for us over the last few seasons. We usually pick back up the second half of the season so I expect the same from the boys under Silva's management.

{Ed0333's Note - Silva has a managerial blueprint he has a decent start than loses lots of games. Oh and coupled with the fact his teams can’t defend. It’s not that I dislike him but he’s not the caliber of manager Everton need.

Great info Ed. If we do lose Gueye in the summer then Doucoure would be a great replacement for me. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree but I would not hold my breath for Abdoulaye Doucoure to be making a move to Everton. My pick would be Jordan Veretout who is available and could be seen as a financially viable option.}

I actually think Dacoure is a better player. Better passer and even though Gueye has an incredible engine on him I think dacoure has more purpose in his play. As a box to box player he can defend and attack in equal measure. I’d be well happy if we replaced Gueye with him.

DCL is going to be a brilliant striker. His attitude is spot on and his development is well on track. It’s very rare to get the finished article at his age. If we could just be patient then we will have a striker to be proud of.

I love the guy. His ability to hold up the ball makes Lukaku look like an amateur. Yet we crave a replacement but we all bemoaned his poor touch.

We will have our reward as I’m certain this boy will get better with both his accuracy and his decision making. He’s not that far away now tbf.

He has been excellent since he has been first choice up top. This can only get better.
