This is absolutely dire and if this is what is deemed as entertaining by SA I feel sorry for his wife. This is an advert of why we need shut of this man, the life has been sucked out of our club.

When she is getting a share of £9M I doubt it bothers herbluegray.

It is no secret I dislike the man, but when he stooped so low as to try and claim Unsies win for himself, he showed his true colours. Those colours are not the blue of Everton. I hope the board share the same opinion.

2.) 06 May 2018 17:23:46
I think he meant about his entertaining her both in and out of the bedroom lol

Well. that’s what I was taking from it lol.

3.) 06 May 2018 18:41:55
Sure did Southern Toffee lol.

4.) 06 May 2018 19:40:15
I think nick did as well lol.

5.) 07 May 2018 01:38:49
C’mon boys, we’re better than this.
If I talked your Mrs up on a night out you’d sort me out no?
Let’s shake Sam’s hand, wish him well, pay him a few mill and move on.

The clue is in the name of the site Blue79 that being banter.

Looks like Walsh's times up. Reports say Brands will be joining Everton once PSV have the title wrapped up. This should also signal the end of Walsh's bezzies time at the club too hopefully.


1.) 04 Apr 2018 15:12:46
No one likes a demotion but it'd be great to see him back as head scout.
Why not?

2.) 04 Apr 2018 20:54:03
Well Walsh might well end up as head scout, why not? He would not necessarily get a pay reduction and he is well compensated.

3.) 05 Apr 2018 00:02:41
We then get a top DOF and a top scout, win win for a change. Hopefully we then get a top manager.

4.) 05 Apr 2018 09:01:37
Cant see Walsh wanting to stay as chief scout, I certainly wouldn't.

5.) 05 Apr 2018 12:21:39
Why not? Same money, less stress, less responsibilty. Still reasonably close to home.

6.) 05 Apr 2018 13:12:02
For one its a vote of no confidence from the management team two its not really a sideways move and three DOF is what he wanted to do why go backwards staying at a club that has decided your not good enough for the role you want.

7.) 06 Apr 2018 00:01:41
Daily Fail.
Alleges Moshiri sees Brandt and Walsh working together.
Paper talk obviously.



10 Mar 2018 18:48:00
Right that was better. Brighton came to frustrate us and we never really looked uncomfortable. The starting 11 made it comfortable as no players were asked to play out of position.

Tosun looks like he is getting sharper, Rooney played some class balls from that deeper role, Jags and Keane dealt well with the threat up front and the 2 fullbacks got forward and supported.
It was probably the best team performance we have seen this season, maybe the manager knows what little chance he has of keeping his job depends on how well the team does.

The reception Davy Klassen got when he came on was exceptional and I'm made up for the lad to get some minutes and also to hear the fans fully support him.
The big ask now is to replicate this effort in an away game next week to Stoke, hopefully Theo is fine, if not would like to see Klassen given a start in the number 10 with Gylfi on the left and Bolasie on the right.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 11:01:50
So now you want gylfi back out of position?

2.) 11 Mar 2018 11:45:34
Some players don't always have good games every week, but what they do can make the other team play different, he may make a run, play a pass, but it will effect the way the match turns out, so as a team today everyone played there part, weather you think he played well or not, take one part out and the team play different and the outcome changes, take for instance, if gueue had played with Rooney, would he have been running forward or staying back, which then let's there midfield move forward, which puts us under pressure, then the whole team starts getting further and further back, today we played attacking and pinned them back and got our goals, just because a player may of not played the ball or gave it away, he may of made runs that makes the other team sit back and not move forward, never change a winning team. we won be happy.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 14:06:27
I said IF Theo is not available, as he went off with what looked like a hamstring injury.

4.) 11 Mar 2018 17:47:22
So play Vlasic there. But leave Siggy in the middle.



21 Jan 2018 22:06:10
Is Mori still expected to be out until April or could he be back sooner? Original assumption was 6 to 9 months?




02 Jan 2018 00:18:36
Today I noticed the players looked more concerned with keeping shape than actually pressing the ball. Its OK defending well but when that invites the opposition to pick their spot from range that then defeats the object of defending as a unit.
There were gaps to exploit United, but other than Bolasies 1st half run at the defence we didn't exploit this.

We need to get the balance between defence and attack correct soon or we will end up losing or drawing more games than we win.
Will a new forward make the difference? IMO no, not unless we get the balance right, McCarthy showed more in the 20 minutes he was on than Schneids has shown all season and got the crowd up with his tackles.

We need more than Tosun, if that actually comes off, we need a link between midfield and frontman by way of a good creative midfielder, if Tosun comes off then go and get Dembele and have a front line with pace and power.
The last 2 managers have set us back 5 years, meaning we have had to recruit a ship steadier, the midfield needs to be more involved in attacking than defending and then and only then will we actually win games.

Finally have Silva done and dusted. Looking forward to the new season and the new look Everton.
We should all start with a clean slate and forget about Hull, we are Everton, we have some talent already at our disposal and Marco is the man who will mould this talent into an attack minded footballing side.
Young manager with a modern style, something we haven't had for a while.




27 May 2018 00:03:50
Hahahahaha and the new film Carry on Karius.




18 May 2018 15:17:34
Just a quick stat for those saying Silva isn't good enough because he has a relegation on his C. V., well a certain Mr Benitez who some fans, myself included, would like at Everton also has a relegation on his C. V.
Let's get behind the philosophy and the football Silva likes to play and forget the relegation with Hull, all due respect we are Everton not Hull, this is a job that Marco fancies and believes he can make a success of so let's support him and not condemn him before he has even set his stapler down on his desk.


1.) 18 May 2018 15:39:24
I read a lot of good things about Silva, he's liked by a lot of people and has an attacking style that has worked abroad, I think if he comes to Everton he needs the players in and quick and to have a good pre season so Everton can start on the front foot, so much negative football will be hard to shift mentally, hope brand cam find some diamonds, problem is it all sounds like last season.

2.) 18 May 2018 23:59:11
The catch there Simontoffee is a style that works abroad. Look I am not trying to be a sour grapes whinger but the facts and stats speak for themselves. At Hull and Watford he had win stats in the low 30's. This after having initial attacking success until the opposition worked it out. With Martinez and us it took a Season and a half and to be fair the Second season with Europe we were not deep enough in positional strength. Couple that with Martinez stubborness in not caring how many the opposition score as long as we score more and the project was doomed to failure. Koeman never bought into the project in the first place. Dare I say that at Hull and then Watford, Silva has been along the lines of a Martinez and far to similar for my liking. Ed025 aligned me with negativity, I prefer to be called a realist and believe me I do not want to be one of those that says 'I told you so'.



18 May 2018 14:55:55
Just read an interesting stat about Lookman. He scored 5 goals in 11 appearances giving him the second best goals to game ratio behind Lewandowski! While Lookman was doing this we had to watch our one trick pony Bolasie add as much spark as a wet flint. I for one hope this kid is a regular starter next season as he has talent to be successful.


1.) 18 May 2018 20:35:15
I agree 100%

It will be interesting to see if the fans believe the new gaffer in regard to players.

We have several players not performing and not selected but fans are so suspicious of the coach, we have ruled out their opinions and are still calling for some players to be given a chance. Will this make 4th chance for some?

Anyway it will be great to have a boss who commands some respect from us lot. It's got a bit Mad Max recently. I'm looking forward to performance improvements, but also to fan v club improvements. Goodison was an embarrassment this last 12 months. Let's get her rocking again as it's what we're famous for. Give the old girl the last few years with the roof blown off.



13 May 2018 21:17:35
So a season that promised so much has finally ended. We now sit and wait to see what the next chapter is at our beloved club.
I feel that SA will be relieved of his duties and we will have a new man in charge before the World Cup.
I didn't want Sam and never thought we were in danger as much as was being made out, what we need now is a new man with fresh ideas but most importantly with an emphasis on attacking in games rather than not conceding.
I have a feeling it will be Marco Silva in by the end of the month as he is not tied down so is a straight forward recruitment.
I look forward to next season and go into it with no expectations and all I ask is for the club to be going in the right direction on and off the field, and that's forward, without SA.


1.) 13 May 2018 22:09:47
Yes I have a feeling it's Silva. I just don't get a good feeling with him though. Nothing against him at all. He's supposedly declined offers. Well if that isn't calculated. I still fancy Fonseca. But he's supposedly going to West Ham. Only just entered the race "supposedly"

2.) 13 May 2018 22:29:05
If you believe all the rumours West Ham will have Emery Pellegrini Fonseca and Silva all replacing Moyes!

But we should be looking to move away from playing 2 DM and add an extra creative midfielder to the mix. Could play Gueye sitting in front of a back 4 with Gylfi, Lookman and either Vlasic or Klaasen as a 3 behind Tosun and Walcott.

Rafa is to have a meeting this week if reports are to be believed and maybe the result of this meeting will have a bearing on our chances of luring him to the correct side of Merseyside. The top brass surely have a list of potential managers if and when SA is relieved of his duties and I'm sure Rafa will be high up on that list, well I'm hoping so anyways.

Leicester won the league with a team of players rather than a side of individuals, better players doesn't always win the day, sometimes commitment and dedication and team ethics wins the day.

See your point Son of Grumpy and added to that he was playing with top players around him too, would he have flourished with Kilbane on the wing and Marcus Bent up top with him? The talent was there and maybe if he stayed we could have attracted a higher calibre of player, it's all in hindsight really.
