I'm really interested in this Ed02 related suggestion of Hoddle for manager and think he would have been a tremendous acquisition at the club. As has been said, It really is baffling as to why he's disappeared from club job shortlists.
I wonder if it went t*ts up for him when he was England boss and had that debacle with mystics improving performance or whatever it was along those lines. He got so much ridicule that perhaps clubs don't want that controversy. I personally believe he was just trying something new, mental improvement converting to performance gains, but it just spun out of control.
Anyways, he was a top drawer manager and no doubt could inject something fresh into the club which we desperately need. I hope we get to see him back in a top job one day soon!
As for Allardyce or Fonseca, I'd go for the latter all day long but do share most peoples concerns of him adapting quickly enough to help us. Maybe we would be safer with the proven option for the short term health of the club.

Hoddle has been out of the management game for too long now in my opinion. We don't have time for experiments at present. We have done that with Unsworth and look where we are. I would have loved it to have worked out for Davey but the mess and unbalanced side that Koeman has left behind has made it practically impossible for a good, young and inexperienced manager to get anything from the position. Although there are a lot that really don't want Sam he is the best option we have to stabalise and move us away from the bottom.

2.) 29 Nov 2017 16:03:34
The reason he fell off the radar was for comments relating to the disabled. Something along the lines of his opinion was that we are all reincarnated once we die and that those who are disabled are paying the price of wrong doing in a previous life.

So excited for tomorrows deadline, i'm sure we'll be one of the teams getting serious SSN coverage.

Linked to Watforfds Okaka i see and actually, I'm quite happy with this. He's been a little inconsistent but not really given a real chance. He's a solid beast of a man, tough and strong and i think he will be very usefull for hold up play. Strong 'bully' attributes too to get to goal which i like. Also, he definitely scores some fab goals (when he scores which isn't as often as i think he could) .

If he can step up to a more consistent level then he could be a real asset to the team! Imagine him putting in more of the performances like he did against Liverpool on opening day. Not a long term solution, and not the high profile we all hoped for, but certainly better than not getting anybody.

On a side note, what a great piece of business by West Brom in getting Krychowiak from PSG. They kept that quiet and i bet their fans are thrilled! How I'd have loved him to join us!


1.) 31 Aug 2017 10:17:09
I can't get over people who question certain players we are linked with. Just because they are not talked about in a fashionable manner.

Like Valencia last season everyone was saying lack of ambition bla bla bla.

Imho Valencia was good for us last season. Anytime he came on the team changed and the majority of the time improved. I'm not saying we should of signed him. The point is he done a job for us and quite effective at it too. Didn't get a deserved amount of praise imho.

Who's to say another won't come in and do the same or even better? Okaka may surprise some people if we get him. After all that's what Walsh is there for. Gana didn't excite too many people and look him now. Martina is improving already. Hope he proves his worth with time also.



22 Jun 2017 22:14:41
Evening fellow Evertonians.

I want to state i am not ITK so i tentatively share this information to ponder. It's just some chatter I've heard and could be way off the mark.

Barkley wants a move to a bigger club BUT would happily take a move to almost any club in London, it seems he just wants to relocate to the capital more than anything.

The bigger news i have is that further transfers may actually be put on hold for the time being. It seems that anticipated outgoings are not coming to fruition and if we continue to line up deals we will end up with a bloated squad that has cost a lot of money.

Yes its early days and the window has yet to open, but it was thought a bid would come for Barkley which now looks unlikely, and there is growing thought that Lukaku may actually end up staying. It stems from so many high quality forwards rumoured to be moving that teams could very well swerve a big money move for Rom in favour of equally quality players.

The sudden interest in Lewandowski, although quickly put to bed, apparently made us think that Chelsea are not as keen as first thought and may very well be working on other options instead. It could run late in the window to be decided and we can't splash out on a pricey forward if Rom ends up staying.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 23:36:03
The board are not stupid enough to overspend, they will continue with their targets, this is big business all aspects will have been carefully considered that we are obviously not party to, I remember Koeman saying there would be a statement on Ross B for example which never materialised .
This is pure conjecture on your part and not the reality.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 23:37:18
We have spent roughly 55 million so far.

Bear in mind that we actually made money in the previous summer window.

With the TV money alone, we still have money left to spend, so why would we put signings on hold?

In regards to the bloated squad. Koeman came out even before the season finished and said that we will be recruiting heavily to cope with the extra games/ demands of european football.

With Conor Mc, Kone released and then McCarthy, Jags, Valencia, Del Boy, McGeady, Niasse all leaving (makes 8) , we have only gotten 2 replacements in so far.

Makes no sense at all. We have money to spend, regardless of whether Rom or Barkley stay. Which i highly doubt they will, and the Eds have already made us aware of this.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 23:43:57
I'm not so sure Barkley would be interested in a move to west ham, Fulham, palace or QPR so don't see much in that rumour. I am not ITK but what I do know is that if Lukaku was to stay RK, FM, BK, and SW would be made up.
The club would be stupid to start spending money they couldn't afford based on a possible bid coming in for a player and that is not how the club is being run.
We have money, not billions but enough to bank roll what we have bought so far. Our squad is still small and full of youngsters for a team who needs to compete in the Europa league as well as the prem and domestic cups.
I would take those rumours with a pinch of salt WorcesterEFC.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 23:57:34
Window hasn't actually opened yet. So bidding 18m for Brozovic was just a bluff then was it? Stop believing everything you read in the papers mate.

5.) 23 Jun 2017 11:18:45
@Woburnblue calm your attitude! This is something i heard people talking about today, nothing whatsoever to do with papers. I didn't say anything was a bluff. My understanding is its a re-evaluation until outgoings are clearer. Obviously higher quality signings are considered but we will not be spending 30 mil plus on strikers in the event we don't sell Lukaku!

I thought people would have the common sense to understand i meant attack rather than whole squad but it appears some people are either too literal or itching to slag things off at the first opportunity.

@JMW1878 I don't think you have a grasp of things, just because we made money in previous window and had an influx of cash from tv rights etc, does not mean we can go out and spend it all. The club is looking to buy big, but these players do not come to sit on the bench, and the club does not invest in numerous high value signings to fill the squad without playing.

The likes of Dembele and Bacca etc will not be actively pursued if there is the possibility of not getting a Lukaku sale. You list 8 players "all leaving" but my understanding is there is little interest and at least 4 of those you named could very well still be at the club come end of transfer window.

@Smit666 another literal view of my comment. Maybe i should have said EPL teams to make it easier for you to understand. Use some common sense that i didn't mean Fulham or QPR! But i am of the understanding that he actually would consider West Ham and Palace.

6.) 23 Jun 2017 11:49:09
it's obvious ross has been tapped up by spurs at least a year ago or is it big players within the team reminding every good player we have what a small insignificant club we are but you would think ross (jeffers) barkley would be happy to just come out and say what he wants no fans would hold a grudge if he wanted to try something new in his life especially with his recent troubles. his silence speaks volumes he is not waiting for a move to the capital he is waiting to move to spurs despite the rhetoric coming out of WHL franny i mean ross may just panic and sign for arsenal. what a time to leave tho ross when we are building for the future and the way levy runs spurs you can bet most of the best players in that team will leave within 2 years for better pay and teams maybe you should have taken more stock of players in similar positions in the past.

7.) 23 Jun 2017 13:23:35
As I said the window is not open yet, it has nothing to do with who we sell or buy. People have just got carried away with early signings.

8.) 23 Jun 2017 13:34:46
If Ross would consider WH or Palace then he seriously lacks ambition and the move wouldn't make sense, they won't pay him more than what we have already offered so the move would be purely based on location which is just NUTS.

9.) 23 Jun 2017 15:54:50
I heard some people talking yesterday too and I'm not claiming to be ITK either, but they said those Asda white chocolate magnum copies are just as good as the real McCoy.



10 Jun 2017 17:01:09
So i heard a rumour a couple of weeks ago that we were interested in Chris Smalling, i dismissed it instantly as i just couldn't see that happening. However it seems Utd have tied up a deal for Lindelof so i have to ask, is it actually a possibility after all?

I have very differing opinons of Smalling at times, sometimes i think he's rock solid and other games he just seems a little average, but on balance i think he would be a pretty decent signing. A partnership of him and Holgate would be pretty solid i think and would definitely be an improvement on our ageing back line situation. You could also say it would potentially be the England national back line in future games if they bonded well.

If anybody has heard anything about this i'd love to know!?


1.) 10 Jun 2017 22:10:14
Everton are after michael Keane. Lamos is back up.

2.) 11 Jun 2017 00:12:50
that's not what i asked jipster.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 12:16:28
Couldn't agree more, Worcester. Seen him look absolutely top quality one game and wobbly and below average the next, but that's symptomatic of a good player playing a little above his level who's not great dealing with 70,000 deluded united fans a week. Think could find his feet and get established with us, as long as he's not too much. Would happily say around £20m?



30 Aug 2016 21:11:16
Hi Blues

I know he is a controversial choice and many people don't rate him but i think Jack Wilshire could be worth a punt. I say this though only on certain terms which i don't even know if they would be possible.

We take him on the season long loan but with the following deal - a termination clause if he gets a serious injury. If there is a loan fee, this gets decreased in value if he misses a certain percentage of matches through injuries, so perhaps pay half in advance and the remainder based on the games he was available for throughout the season.

I am very dubious of his injury record but i am wondering if maybe he is not committed as much as he could be at Arsenal. He thinks he's a golden boy there but by being told he has to go on loan could give him a real kick up the ass that his future is on the line at last. He needs to perform well this year to either stay with Arsenal or at least become an attractive proposition for other teams he would want to join and so this season long loan could see him play to the best of his ability and whoever gets him could really benefit from this.


{Ed025's Note - i cant see arsenal agreeing to that worcester, by the way it is jack that has asked to go on loan not arsenal mate..

1.) 30 Aug 2016 21:44:18
I had the same kind of feeling about Balotelli, try to get him on loan with a behaviour clause. All it takes is one gamble to pay off and it can gain you 10 points a season. PS I know Liverpool wouldn't do that but surely some players are worth a gamble. What's better? Paying £13.5m for Niasse?

2.) 31 Aug 2016 00:48:52
I think in most cases when someone on loan sustains an injury they return to the parent club for treatment depending on how serious of course.

3.) 30 Aug 2016 22:56:43
Thanks Ed, i had no idea Jack asked for the move. I assumed it was a club choice due to not playing plus being stacked in that position. He must be confident he is going to stay fit this year if he wants to move for regular game time, else it just seems pointless asking to go.

{Ed025's Note - i think he feels he needs a break worcester and needs game time, he has not been getting that at arsenal plus a lot of his problems have been personal ones created by the crowd he knocks around with, the smoking and drinking issues has seen him fall lout with the hierarchy at the emirates and a move away seems the logical solution mate..

Hey all,
I imagine over the international break we will appoint a full time manager, and it seems almost inevitable that it'll be Allardyce. I'm not a fan at all after his England shame and was disgusted that he got another job so quick at Palace, but if he is to be our man then we need to stop the (justified) hate by pretty much everyone on here. We can't start a new era with such negativity otherwise confidence within the team will vanish immediately. let's give him a fighting chance to win us over.
I do admit though, i'm quite curious about how he will perform in the transfer market. If Moshiri decides to bankroll a new manager as a lot of the big guys would demand when taking the job, then who could we expect to see interest in? I say this remembering the Bolton signings that made me so envious. Okocha, Djorkaeff, Ivan Campo etc. How on earth did he tempt those guys to join? I wonder if he's a manager who will go all out for so called 'big name' signings, or keep the faith and bring in players he's worked with previously (i foresee Andros Townsend and Zaha rocking up at Goodison in January) .
Anyways, let's hope for a great game today that gives Unsworth a winning send off.


{Ed025's Note - i myself will have to tolerate him (if appointed) i suppose worcester, i love everton and want the best for them, but i wont be singing his praises or chanting his name anytime soon i can tell you, selling my soul to the devil is not really my bag mate and out of respect for other supporters i will try not to bad mouth the guy if we are doing ok, im afraid thats all i can promise at this time mate and if the worst happens then so be it..

1.) 05 Nov 2017 12:15:52
It will be Moyes mate, sorry to say.

{Ed025's Note - no chance stig..

2.) 05 Nov 2017 12:24:12
We will win today 3-1 to stop the rot. Allardyce will not be appointed our next Manager so stop worrying about that. Our next manager needs to be one which we can all be proud of and support.

{Ed025's Note - i hope you right mike..

3.) 05 Nov 2017 13:03:07
I have been a fan for a log time, (Vernon, Dunlop, Temple) first game 58/ 59, but now I am worried, we have dreamers here who think we will pay for a top manager? but we will end up with a fat sam or a moyes, same rubbish managers just move around.

4.) 05 Nov 2017 13:46:55
Wow Stig sane season as me mate and we seem to be on the same wavelength.
I am often called negative on here but without sounding to clever several of my negative comments have proved correct SADLY inc my views on Koeman
Stig I would put it down not so much to negativity but experience and wisdom of our great club .

5.) 05 Nov 2017 14:31:45
Will not be Moyes as he will be the next Westham manager.

9.) 05 Nov 2017 16:05:21
I’m liking the team selection. Schneiderlin dropped at last! Think I’m the only Evertonian that still wants Rhino as our manager on a permanent basis. Out of the names being mentioned Sean Dyche is the only other that interests me, the rest are laughable. The favourites surely a massive no! Moyes over Alladyce every day of the year . and some. Don’t want neither but it ain’t up to me. DU should be given at least another 3,4 games but that’s my opinion. If we win today I won’t be the only fan saying this either. COYB!

10.) 05 Nov 2017 17:29:56
If Allerdyce is appointed I'm done after 66yrs. The thought of that greedy, arrogant gum chewing tosser stood on the touchline with an Everton badge on his chest is more than I can stomach. Each to his own opinion though.



19 Oct 2017 00:18:01
Keeping my fingers firmly crossed for victory against Lyon to keep our European hopes alive. I know most people think a defeat will see Koeman sacked but I'm not so sure. Our club is renowned for patience with a manager, and i believe with him getting such heavy player investment, he'll be given until the end of the season unless we look to be in a serious relegation situation. My guess would be a change of manager in June, much as it was with Martinez.

With regards to who i would like to replace him, i know everyone is vehemently against Rafa because of the Liverpool connection but he's a manager that can get us moving in the right direction so we shouldn't cut our nose off to spite our face. If he's got the balls to take on the job with his club history then he'll get my full support to prove himself.

I'm also a real fan of the Poland manager Adam Nawalka. I thought during the Euros that they were a real joy to watch and set up very well in matches. If this was brought to Everton then i think we'd see much better football than now. However i admit that i know nothing about his previous experience and whether international management style could be replicated at club level so just an unknown quantity in that respect.

Finally, if any eds or readers can help, is Laurent Blanc currently manager of anybody? What a manager he would be to get. Not sure if he'd fancy us and probably gets some pretty decent offers but i think he'd be a real coup. Pipe dreams eh.


1.) 19 Oct 2017 11:24:49
Re the Lyon game be aware they are resting 5 key players or a combination of rest / injured that will no doubt be fit again at the weekend .
That may make our task easier tonight but I still think it will be difficult. I just wanted to make my fellow BLUES on here aware that if by some miracle we do win we are not playing the same Lyon team we would be playing if it were the final .
Having said that we would all have Lookman Kenny and Davies in our teams, maybe they will get a chance tonight
Play them and our chances increase dramatically. HOW COME WE CAN ALL SEE THAT BY RK CANT?

2.) 19 Oct 2017 14:52:10
can only beat the team that's in front of you trebor. could ay the same about us as we still don't know our best line up?



23 Sep 2017 16:56:05
Niasse again, WOW. Who would have thought he'd be our saviour

I admit, i only thought he should be given a chance out of sheer desperation and i offer my genuine apologies for the smack I've said about him. Time for him to be given a real chance now, a fresh start in the eyes of all Evertonians.




22 Sep 2017 16:29:24
Just had a discussion with friends in work and thought it was interesting enough to debate on here.

We all know Champions League is the superior European competition to be in, but, what would be considered the better result. Man Utd won the Europa, or say Spurs who didn't get past the group stage in CL?

Naturally the best teams to play against and big money lies with CL but isn't winning Europa a bigger celebration?

Hypothetically, if you were told at the start of the season, Everton can play in CL but won't get out of the group, or can play Europa and will win the tournament, what would you prefer?

Personally it would be a dream to see us play against Barca, PSG etc but I'd be so depressed seeing us get spanked. To lift the Europa cup, albeit the second tier competition, would be my choice of options.


{Ed001's Note - surely there is no debate when winning the lesser trophy gives entry into the bigger trophy for the following season?}

1.) 22 Sep 2017 18:28:29
Winning a trophy. Every single time. For owners it's being in the competitions that pay the most but for fans and the club's prestige it's all about silverware. Winning trophies also breeds winning trophies and is more likely to be a springboard to success.

Whats the point in record books if you're never in it?

2.) 22 Sep 2017 18:43:41
Its a nice prize to aim for ed01, plus a glamour match of the super cup. Take away thoughts of qualification for the CL by winning and hypothetically just base it on whether its more appealing to play against Barca, Madrid and the likes or win a trophy?

{Ed001's Note - ah ok sorry. In that case surely the aim of sport is to win things? You have to go for the trophy imo.}

3.) 22 Sep 2017 18:50:59
Have to agree with Ed001.

4.) 23 Sep 2017 11:04:19
Worcester EFC, going along with your hypothesis, Everton need to get their act together, after losing 3-0 to an average side what does that make us.

5.) 23 Sep 2017 17:33:30
Wtf bigduncsmum. It was nothing to do with team performances or having a dig at the team. Either you're a troll who loves to constantly bitch about us or just an imbecile looking for an argument. I 100% guarantee you'll be posting crap about the club even though we got the result today!



20 Sep 2017 22:02:20
I am absolutely amazed that Niasse actually got on the pitch tonight. I know recently people have been saying to give him a chance, but Koeman was so vehement that Niasse would never feature for us. 15/ 16 months without sniff certainly backed that up. Was tonight a sign of desperation? Or did Koeman swallow his pride and give him a fair chance? Or has Niasse started to show he's worth being considered? Hopefully one day we'll all find out what went so drastically wrong for him to be ostracized because i still have no idea, crappy attitude or woeful?

Will he feature again any time soon is the big question.

An area of the pitch you need pace? For real? His job is, and always was, to break up the flow of opposition midfield, stop their forward breaks and keep our line steady. He's a defensive enforcer in my view, someone who always puts his body on the line to make the defence job a little easier. Yes he gets a lot of bookings but because he is brave in any situation and knows the tactical advantage of when committing a foul is more of a benefit to the team. I think he would have been a real asset for us in the last half hour of any game where we are under pressure and need to stop such attacking threats. I wil miss him and wish him nothing but the best at West Brom.

He is not premier league quality at all. i'm not surprised you forget this because he was pathetic when he had his chance at both West Brom and Leicester. He is another Jordan Rhodes, great in the Championship but will not succeed in the top division. If anybody honestly wants to say they think he is an adequate replacement for Lukaku then i'm baffled. I think far too many on here just want us to spend for the sake of it, and a select few just like to argue against any point made because you like the drama. I maintain my stance that signing players of the quality of Woods is something that would see us move backwards in the league!

Im so fed up of your negativity. Yourself and a handful of others constantly gripe about all thing Everton. Even after a win all we hear is that is a new manager bounce and soon we'll be back into the relegation fight.
Show some support for the team for once and see where this season yet goes.

My understanding is that we will be selling him (probably to Juventus) before he ever plays for us.
Such a shame but a quick profit eases the pain.

I like Steve Bruce! He's not the highest calibre manager ever and i think he comes up short when it comes to managing in the PL, but he seems like a genuinely decent guy who goes into a club, steadys the ship and builds a solid foundation for a new manager to then take a club forward that bit more necessary for a stay in the top division.
Not everybody can reach the highest echelons of the industry so don't disrespect him for doing the best he can.
No he's not the guy for Everton now, but if we ended up doing a Sunderland or Villa then he's exactly the kind of manager we would then want on board.

What does Gana playing have to do with Klaassen and Sig? He's a completely different kind of player, and prob one of our best. To leave him out would be a sin.
