Everton ready 'huge' third offer for Sigurdson. 'Player plus 45 Mill' is the rumour. If they are serious and a third offer would indicate they are, then why haven't they offered the 50 Mill, Swansea can then take it or leave it and we can all move on.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 17:40:42
I've heard the same, but that this is an agreed approach between the two clubs. fingers crossed this one gets over the line and then we can focus on bringing some speed to work alongside that quality.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 18:50:25
Ed any news of this.

{Ed025's Note - i know nothing about this rich mate..



28 Dec 2016 19:52:25
van dyke must be worth 60 mill after that start against spuds.


1.) 28 Dec 2016 20:25:35
Just gone down by 20 million, he lost out on a header by Ali who scored!

2.) 28 Dec 2016 21:23:59
yep noticed and was just about to post but you beat me to it. Funny how the commentators missed what was obvious to us.

3.) 29 Dec 2016 11:41:41
Well after that result surely we should get him on a free now. 😀.



03 Dec 2016 21:37:24
The scale of Koeman's job is becoming more and more apparent every week now. Catch22 without the players we cannot progress and we cannot progress unless we can attract the players and to attract the players we need to be at least top 6.

Ergo as much as we want things to happen in the January window, nobody of quality will come unless we:
A) Pay over the odds

B) Pay wages over the odds


1.) 03 Dec 2016 23:03:31
It does seem that is likely to be the case until we establish our credentials!

2.) 03 Dec 2016 23:25:27
Get the chequebook out farhad.

3.) 04 Dec 2016 18:40:38
Have to agree there is no quick fix to oour problems but let's see more youngsters given a go. Holgate was excellent today and Davies deserves a chance.



07 Jun 2016 06:43:36
Saints are worried that Koeman will come back and raid for their stars. Forster (is he better than what we have - Yes) , Van Dyke (in the long run he is no better than what we have) , Shane Long (about on a par with Naismith and better than Kone (although Koeman has worked with Kone before, we could be in for a surprise) ) .


1.) 07 Jun 2016 07:08:11
I am sorry but I think Long is much better than Naismith and as for Lone and the like it's time for them to go.

2.) 07 Jun 2016 07:15:03
I really like Virgil van Dijk and would be better than Scott Dann for me but I am sure I read that he only signed a new contract recently through until 2022 so would cost far too much.
And Fraser Forster signed a new contract around a similar time through to 2021, but I would look to stump up the cash for a top keeper so worth looking at.

3.) 07 Jun 2016 08:04:02
Can't see Forster coming. Like has been said, he just signed a long term contract. Plenty other keepers about, Cillisen, Mandanda or Leno. If reports are true, Southampton are trying to stop Koeman coming back for players put into the deal. If so it's a shame as I'd like us to try for Saido Mane and Ryan Bertrand.

4.) 07 Jun 2016 08:42:55
No matter what happens I quite like the idea that none of us have known for weeks maybe months what is actually happening I Like the Way Moshiri goes about conducting business. I hope this can only bode well for the future.

5.) 07 Jun 2016 11:36:33
For all we know, there could be a buy out figure, in Forster's contract, Koeman wouled know that, so let's hope.

6.) 07 Jun 2016 12:51:07
is that the same shane long that picked Reading over us a few seasons ago? I really dislike him think at the time he said he never wants to join us,

7.) 07 Jun 2016 18:25:09
Decent enough player I suppose, but he's always just had one of those faces I'd love to smack. Dunno why. Guess he doesn't care thiugh in his mansion and ferrari. Haha.



06 Jun 2016 20:54:02
I too believe the Koeman deal will go through and the compensation negotiations are normal for someone of Koeman's stature in the game. As to the being offered a £100 Mill budget, as my Son In Law says (an RS by the way) that is nothing special, all the Prem Clubs will have a budget of similar size. Unless of course the £100 Mill is additional to the TV income we will get.


{Ed025's Note - it will depend on what that £100m entails BCT, will it be that amount on direct transfers or will part of that go towards wages, agents fees and VAT etc?, i suppose we will have to wait and see but i think this moshiri is the real deal mate..

1.) 06 Jun 2016 21:19:02
Surely koeman would have asked those questions ed and liked the answers he got if its true that he is going to accept the job hope so.

{Ed025's Note - he and his advisors will have shogs, no one outside that room will know what was said but if he does sign on the dotted line then you would expect he was happy with the answers mate..

2.) 06 Jun 2016 21:24:01
Have no doubt whatsoever that he is the real deal. Certainly hit the ground running but there again you do not become a billionaire by being a mug.

{Ed025's Note - thats very true BCT...how did you make yours?.. :)

3.) 06 Jun 2016 21:37:51
cheers ed.

4.) 07 Jun 2016 09:28:32
saved up my threepence a week pocket money till I was 15 and legged it ed25, didn't smoke but invested in woodbines every pay day selling half a ciggy at an exorbitant sum on tick to the smokers that ran out of cash.

6th in the running order on MOTD tonight out of 7. We are progressing!


1.) 03 Nov 2018 22:46:15
Hope all you guys giving out about Coleman are eating humble pie tonight 😜.



03 Nov 2018 14:35:25
Sorry to be negative but with Walcots reduced form of the last few games and Richarlison hit or miss at CF the Team was/ is crying out for change and imo I thought that Mr Silva would not be Martinez like and stick with his favourites. I hope I am wrong but this could be an opportunity missed. COYB.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 16:45:39
I think you are right about Walcott but the manager is making 1000's of decisions and getting most correct. Perhaps Walcott is looking good in training and just needs a bit of confidence. Either way the manager is improving us every week.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 17:14:33
Glad I was wrong degsyp LOL.



03 Mar 2018 14:28:13
He has to gp once we are safe.


1.) 03 Mar 2018 14:36:30
IF we get safe!



31 Jan 2018 19:10:46
Alardyce said Siguurdson and Rooney could not play together. So who is in the side tonight. Stuff it give me another drink.


{Ed025's Note - pour me a large one BCT, i might just need it tonight mate..



02 Oct 2017 23:59:29
Here is a truth. I am an old man now and even in my prime would say an average player. Never the less I played combined services Hong Kong and in Cýprus limassol (as it was then) . Currently on hols to see that we only drew with a side I as a crap player played for is quite frankly appalling. This is Koemans side / squad. He has to go.


{Ed033's Note - It would obviously help if Everton could attract and sign a world class striker in January.

1.) 03 Oct 2017 01:21:31
Ed033 who is going to set up our world class striker n January, this team is lacking confidence and speed, even Messi would struggle with our managers tactics.

{Ed033's Note - i didn't say it would be easy. Why would a world class striker want to come to Everton?

2.) 03 Oct 2017 07:50:43
Got to admit I did like Koeman and would love him to turn it around but personally I think he is on the edge of losing the dressing room, there is only one outcome then.

I think he has two more matches to save his job as we are not the Everton of old who will keep the manager as we cannot afford to sack him, Mr Moshiri is here now and as a self made billionaire he will not take fools lightly, we saw how quickly he wielded the axe with Robert Martinez

Regarding strikers for us in Jan, i'm at a loss who i'd want, no top striker will come to us at the minute, Carroll, Benteke not for me, I can't even think of anyone, its impossible replacing Rom as he was top drawers as we are all seeing now, hopefully we have someone lined up.

3.) 03 Oct 2017 11:22:27
Not sure Moshiri will sack RK let's face it he appointed him in the first place so he would be basically admitting that he made a mistake in hiring him. He wasn't conned or courted by RK he went after him. So I think RK will get a fair amount of time to turn things around a lot longer than some others hope/ think. The sacking of RM was completely different Moshiri didn't appoint him so had no loyalty what so ever to keep him. As for throwing money away I think he is a little bit more savvy than that.

4.) 03 Oct 2017 11:47:51
I'm sure Moshiri will have hired people in the past for his businesses that didn't perform as he'd hoped, who he subsequently had to sack.

5.) 03 Oct 2017 17:44:52
I believe that Moshiri wants success at Everton so for him the present situation is not acceptible. I am sure that he is looking at alternatives as we speak but will want to give Koeman a little more time, but not much. If a world class candidate is available and would agree to come to Everton I believe time is running out for Koeman.

The Blancs of this World only function where there is loads of Dosh and stability already exists. Despite the hype of a fairly rich majority share holder we do not in comparison have loads of dosh neither do we have stability. I reiterate Dyche abd Silva are used to working with Teams in our current position. At the moment the likes of Blanc are a luxury we cannot risk.

How would Vardy fit into our Team, he is the opposite of what we need now.

Don't know where you sit n the ground Gary but as wblue says every time he plays he doesn't put a foot wrong. I also said in my comment that 'if free from injury'.

Ed025 that may well be the case but surely it is no secret now that reports of Lookman turning it on in training and practice games cannot have escaped all of us. That being the case perhaps it has taken this long for his attitude (apparent) to be ironed out.


{Ed025's Note - maybe so BCT, i think the lad has bags of talent and i would like to see him have a run of games so we can see what he brings to the table mate, at the expense of theo if i was picking the side..

Who do we pick next match that is the quandry. Keane does not deserve it but I would like to see Zouma and Mina or how about a three man defence of Keane Mina and Zouma. Glad I am not the coach/ manager.

Red card tackle all the way even worse when you slow it down and also deliberate in my view the bloke was miffed.

I agree with you GB, but we are not the Manager or coaches. I hear good things about Lookman in training turning it on and magic feet etc! So am forced to conclude that Mr Silva is not immune from that raft of Managers that appear to have their favourites. It is human nature, I hasten to add that I am not criticising Mr Silva, just pointing out a fact. On the game today and a tough game at that, after watching Mina's performance, what a headache Mr Silva has for our next match.

Only Everton has players banned GB mate, you should know that. Some have a go at us Evertonians for playing the victim card. That being the case, how come with this rule of review of simulation able to attract a ban, that Niasse is the only player to have undergone such. It stinks.
