We were a disgrace against Arsenal and yes some of it must go down to the players but Allardyce is not a good manager.

We beat Leicester, albeit with a lot of help from the posts. What does he do? Makes 5 changes, changes the system, drops players who have been struggling for confidence but played well against Leicester, continues to erode the confidence of Tosun by leaving him on the bench. Brings back players like Scheiderlin and Williams who just haven't shown the form or attitude required off them this season.

All the confidence gained from the Leicester result blown. Davis' and Tosun's confidence chipped at again. How does Tosun get acclimatised to the premiership if he's not playing. Why buy him if he's not good enough? Where were Sigardson and Rooney?

It's a shambles and it starts with the team selection.

I never wanted that fraud in charge of our great club unfortunately our club don't act like a big club he will still be here in the summer and if he isn't sacked then I will be cancelling my season ticket because the club is a joke.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 09:40:30
I agree, its ridiculous to say Tosun not playing as he is struggling, but Williams has been struggling for 18 months, he really should never ply for Everton again, his performances and attitude are despicable.

3.) 04 Feb 2018 11:04:10
Whoever thumbed down bw2412 could you please come back and say exactly what it is you disagree with.

4.) 04 Feb 2018 11:09:16
DG I’d add Schneiderlin to that list.

5.) 04 Feb 2018 12:03:54
He clearly decided before the game we weren’t getting anything out of it so he fielded a largely second string eleven. He then tried to park the bus. I also loved how he spent the week telling us that Arsenal can’t defend and then decides to not test their defense at all but rather just allowed them to have an attack vs defense training session.

Clearly the guy is a tactical genius.

6.) 04 Feb 2018 16:49:40
From what I can try to even fathom out, he’s sacrificing this game to go all out with his strongest 11 next week to get a win against Palace, do-not agree with it with so many games to go, maybe if only 4 games left and we were playing a six pointer could then think ok fair enough.

If this was the case yesterday, then why not have given Garbutt a run out for game time.

7.) 05 Feb 2018 19:31:54
If we are happy to throw a game on the off chance we will win the next, then we have seriously hit rock bottom. If this is true then no wonder players are looking to jump ship. Sad sad days.

OK let's put aside the red half and their appalling treatment of their goalkeeper, Gerrard made mistakes that cost them the title and Karius had a howler - nuff said

What is the story re Silva? He's obviously the favourite. Some might ask why but it is Moshiri and the senior managements decision and I respect they have access to far more info than I.

What is the purpose of delaying any announcement though. Watford are playing silly buggers.

Silva can relay his wishes to Brands on players but at what point do we say enough is enough to Watford and put our man in place?

We've done a lot already this close season but please put us out of our misery and let's move on, Announce our new manager and let's get serious planning for next year which is crucial to us all


1.) 28 May 2018 15:40:45
The only thing that can explain this is if Silva has been "relieved of his duties" rather than sacked. That means Watford would still be paying him. If they sacked him they would have settled a lump sum compensation. This way they pay him until he gets another job and there is nothing to compensate him for. Then Everton come along. Watford want Silva off the pay roll. Silva wants the job. Everton want Silva. All know the other's position. Silva says he won't take the job unless he gets some compensation. Watford's reply has the second word "off". Everton say, "we aren'tpapying". It's then a case of who blinks first.

2.) 28 May 2018 17:01:50
Maybe were going to announce Brands and Silva on the 1st.
Brands can't officially be announced until then and it seems right to appoint the manager after the DOF.

3.) 28 May 2018 18:56:07
Probably a combination of things has caused delays. As Smit says, the DoF doesn't begin to work for us until 1st June so I doubt anything will be announced until after that. Watford are still butt-hurt so I'd expect talks to be ongoing with them and the league to reach an agreement. Maybe Brands has his own ideas that doesn't include Silva.

4.) 28 May 2018 20:02:54
Dangly bits Watford are nothing to do with it, have no rights morally and most certainly no rights legally. As you quite rightly say the DoF does not start until 1st June, I fully expect both the DoF and Manager to be announced on the same day I. E. Friday.

5.) 28 May 2018 20:32:27
I think Smit is bang on. Things will be happening behind the scenes. We just need a little patience.

6.) 28 May 2018 22:16:01
I wouldn’t hold your breath on Silva ;)

7.) 29 May 2018 00:16:10
Not sure if true but although Silva was released, I am pretty sure Watford have a holding until June 1st, May be down to compensation they owe him or for whatever else, after that, he can sign, he gets compensation and we can then sign the player, not sure where I heard it a while ago but 1st June was the time Everton were going to make their move.



16 May 2018 11:25:35
Great news on Sam Allardyce but just as important is the proposed DOF role

Do any of the Eds know what is happening re Marcel Brands?

Personally I think he has more than enough time to make his mind up whether he wants the job and we need an answer off him now, not in another 2-3 weeks.

It's not a case of we are Everton so he should be happy that we want him, but, it is a case of, if this is how long he takes to make a decision does he really want to come and maybe we should look elsewhere.


{Ed001's Note - no idea, he has been offered the job, not sure if he accepted and is just trying to sort out a release or if he is thinking it over right now. He has not rejected you though, so that suggests it is probably just a matter of time until he takes up the role. Though you can never be certain when it is a personal decision like this.}

1.) 16 May 2018 12:02:07
Wasn't he offered the job a couple of weeks ago. The transfer window opens tomorrow. Surely it is in the best interests of Brands, Everton and PSV that he makes a decision now instead of keeping everyone in limbo?

Have we got a back up lined up if he backs out?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure all 3 parties would prefer things to be done as soon as possible but it is a big decision to make.

There are always other options, yes, but he is number one choice.}

2.) 16 May 2018 12:20:01
That's why they get paid the big bucks.

Making big decisions - not differing.

We should give him an time frame - make a decision by Friday or we proceed onto the other options.

3.) 16 May 2018 12:34:16
I think also a director of football would need to know who the manager is going to be. I presume he will have said he can work with Silva and hopefully they will both sign together. I can only hope they have their ideas on the squad.

I think though whatever happens Moshiri is now firmly taking charge. I think the coaches, board and players are in for a big turn around - I wouldn’t be suprised to see at least 10 leave:
Robles, jags, Williams, Galloway, Browning, garbutt, besic, jmac, besic, naisse, Rooney off top of my head.

Personally I’d like Aarnold from palace to replace Baines long term. I’d also like Gibson at Boro.

Give klasson Sandro Vlasic and lookman a pre-season to see what they can do as well as new Nigerian striker (forgot his name)

Pay through the nose for Zaha would be my perfect summer but I think another striker seems more likely. Vardy an option but he is 31.

Have a great summer everyone!



05 May 2018 16:49:47
And yet another attack minded, on the front foot, let's get at them side announced by Big Sam.
Mind you we are playing a team in the relegation zone, at home so we must be careful

What a travesty for our club.


1.) 05 May 2018 18:23:03
I don't think any hearts or minds were won in the first half. I've seen more action watching crown green bowling.

You should be proud of yourself Sam

I'm posting this hoping I'll be proved wrong in the second half - if I can stay awake to watch.

2.) 05 May 2018 18:30:47
Still - we can look forward to our one shot on target of the game in the second half.

3.) 05 May 2018 19:36:09
Inspiring wasn't it?

Lost my mind watching it and I haven't the heart to watch this crap again next season so I guess Sam was right when he said he had our hearts and minds at home.



01 May 2018 02:03:59
Just 5 days to go before our last home match of the season and, unless the fans get the clarity on the managers position that Sam has, it promises to be a truly toxic (I hate that word) occasion as the fans use the last chance to show their opinion of the situation.

Why haven't Farhad or the board clarified what is going on. Maybe several reasons

If it's to be Sam he's not going to just see out his contract. He's greedy and will want a payout at the end of his time at any club so he's either pushing for an extension or negotiating his termination now.

If its Fonseca or Silva I don't understand why there is no announcement. One at the end of his contract and one out of contract, Surely if it was one of them we have had enough time to negotiate their contract and Sam's settlement.

If it's a Dyke or a Howe or a Benitez then I can understand a delay. Their clubs, and probably they themselves, would not want to disrupt the end of season for their existing clubs/ fans and we would want a Sam out - ANO in announcement rather than just Sam out

There a lot of ifs buts and maybes out there but I still feel we need some announcement before Saturday.


1.) 01 May 2018 08:01:17
I think that the players such as Rooney saying that they need stability and SA has to remain in charge, along with Gana saying that the confidence is back and SA has got the players believing again is all we need to hear from the team and perhaps the board will hide behind those comments.

Everyone inside Everton seems to be on the same page, seems to be backing sam and seem to be gelling quite well. Maybe the board don’t feel it’s neccesary to comment on the matter. They’re just hoping that a strong finish to the season is all that is required.

2.) 01 May 2018 09:50:23
I doubt there will be an announcement from the club before any fixture. Why would you do disrupt a winning run just for the sake of it? It may well be toxic at Goodison but SA won't care and it will only damage the clubs reputation. If you don't like the football that SA plays then vote with your wallets as it will have a greater impact than spending your hard earned cash and then whinging about the product you receive. I gave up on the season when RK was sacked Unsy didn't get a fair crack of the whip and SA was appointed. If all the disgruntled fans had done that SA would have been out long time ago unless of course there are that many. A win is a win though so although I don't really want him here I will give him credit for what he has done this season, I would also honor his contract but that's just the way I role.

3.) 01 May 2018 10:53:42
SA90 You are absolutely right, Sam won't care and that's half the problem but the fans will care.

If they are going to keep him announce it now - if you think he is right for the job why would it disrupt? It might reduce the number of people complaining if they know that's what the board has decided. They might not like it but more would get behind the team.
If they are going to let him go announce it now. My feeling is that it would greatly improve the atmosphere for the match and help motivate fans and players.

We made a similar announcement when Martinez left = what's the problem?

4.) 01 May 2018 11:35:13
Didn't say there was a problem just said why would you disrupt a winning streak with what may be seen by some (the players seem to be supporting him) as a negative announcement. Doesn't make sense to me.

5.) 01 May 2018 12:58:05
I have to agree, there is no need to announce anything till the end of the season. that's if anything has already been decided. Allardyce has done his best and kept us up (if that was his brief, and if FM thought we were going down) . He doesn't deserve the sack, i personally don't think he deserves another season but that is the tough decision for FM to make.

The players won't know whether he is staying or going and will back the manager regardless for fear of being exiled (like Lookman and Klassen)
On Schneiderlin, yes he has improved, but where was he when we really needed him? is he just playing for a move? has he had an injury we don't know about? who knows.
For me, him and Mirallas shouldn't be near the squad again, Their attitude is suspect following their training ground incident, and the fact Schneiderlin has been poor for so long.



30 Apr 2018 08:14:50
Can any of the Eds shed any light on what the situation is with Klassen?
I think Davis has struggled with his pass accuracy this season, Rooney hasn't set the world alight the last 5-6 games, Bolassie - I know a different position but he;s not been worth his place
The last I heard Klassen was putting in the effort in training, not throwing tantrums like Schneiderlin and Miralles did, but Klassen seems to be no where near the matchday squad.

Are we just looking to sell him at a loss in the summer? If we do I'm scared he will come back to haunt us.


{Ed001's Note - I am told Sam just hasn't been all that impressed with him. He doesn't have the pace and workrate of Davies or the experience of Schneiderlin and Rooney, Sam particularly likes experience. The lad got his head down and worked but has struggled to adjust to the tempo of the Prem. Right now there is no plan to sell him but I would not be surprised if they were open to listening to offers. Playing as an attacking midfielder in the Prem seems to be a bit much for him. He was described as being like Xavi in his younger days, so a deeper role may suit him better, but he needs to become more physical to cope with the Prem in that role and it takes time to develop.}

1.) 30 Apr 2018 08:39:53
I think, as you said, he got his head down and worked but we haven't then given him the opportunity to adjust to the tempo of the Prem. No games, virtually no squad inclusions and not even U23 matches except one. I don't think you can adapt with just training and in-house matches.
He was captain of Ajax so no mug and as I said previously our current midfield hasn't covered themselves in glory this season. I would be surprised if he didn't move and prove us wrong.

{Ed001's Note - I do agree with you, but the managers are paid to take these decisions, so they have to go with what they think is best.}

2.) 30 Apr 2018 10:23:33
So lack of pace? And of course Schneiderlin and Rooney have that in spades😂
Guy should be given a go in the last few games. Send Rooney on holiday, rest Davies and give Klassen and Beni a go in midfield. What possible harm could is do.

3.) 30 Apr 2018 11:11:37
It could cost the club a significant amount if we loose both fixtures and drop down to 10th.

4.) 30 Apr 2018 13:06:18
But could possibly save us millions in the transfer market.
I'm of the same mind as Woburnblue, unless fringe players are given a chance the club will never know their capabilities.
Remember Moyes shipping out Dier and Mustafa without giving them a chance.

5.) 30 Apr 2018 15:14:25
Mmm? Sa90 are you also known as Fat Sam? 🤔.

6.) 30 Apr 2018 16:45:29
No just answering the post with logic. Don't have a problem if either are played but that wasn't then question.

I guess we'll have to wait and see for confirmation. Mightn't be a bad time to get them so soon after the World Cup and both teams hopefully in transition with new signings,

Whoever it is looking forward to it COYB.

The fixtures aren't released until June 14th so not sure where this is all coming from. Someone joked on this site about it a couple of weeks ago so maybe that's why people have it in their head but I don't think it is true.

To all of you not bothered about the money how about letting your wives loose with your credit cards with the same message?

Of course we have to pay the going rate in a market that is getting increasingly expensive every year and yes, there should be some people we pay over the top for to give a message to others that we are going to challenge and make a statement.

But was Niasse money well spent, have we seen a return on Klassen. I have to be honest I'm not sure Sigardson was worth 50m at his age and he hasn't disproved me yet in my opinion although I hope he does.

Moshiri isn't a bottomless pit of money that we can squander because it's 'not ours'. It's up to management to make every pound count. If they believe Arnautovich is worth £50m that's the decision they are there to make. That's one of the reasons they are paid the big salaries. If they think there is someone else better value then I'd be just as happy but I want them to find the best value for money or have sound strategic reasons because that's the way the club will be able to grow

Hopefully the latest news regarding Brands is correct and the snowball has started to roll down the mountain.

The lack of any firm reports of an Allardyce replacement though is worrying to me. We are linked with dozens of replacements but none seem to be done deals.

With the World cup interfering with the close season we need to jump out of the starting blocks straight after our last match. I just hope all the dominos are set up

Only just noticed this but the post is the first post from a degsyp3, not degsyp

Is this the same degsyp or someone trying to wind us all up?

Come on lads. I think you are being a bit unfair on degsyp's post.
I think he's right. It's going to be hard to get rid of some of the older higher paid players. The World Cup is going to get in the way of any signings and, yes, some players won't be interested in us because we don't have European football next year.
Please don't take this the wrong way degsyp but I think sometimes people see you posts and think Oh no, here we go again, aging defence and no left sided players but in this post I think you tried your best to bring something different to the table. Yes, aging players were mentioned but only in the context of the difficulty of removing them if they are on well paid contracts. No mention of left footed deficiencies in the squad. Hoorah - its a valid point but wasn't needed in this post.
I think degsyp was trying to be optimistic but cautious and there's nothing wrong with that Good post

To DFS. I see you are leaving the site once again. It's probably one of the longest farewell tours I have seen. I won't lie. I don't like most of your posts. I think they are disingenuous in so much that they talk of supporting Silva but then have snidey little pops at him and still disagree with his appointment. I do agree with you that everyone is entitled to their opinion though and whilst part of me wouldn't be sorry to see the back of you I would say 'stay on the site' but try and understand that we are all 'disappointed' with our showing the last season and probably earlier than that but we love our club and it is on all of us to get behind it once again and focus on the future not the past.

The problem I have with Scheiderlin is that it is his attitude not talent. Everyone can lose form sometimes but there is no excuse for a lack of effort. He went missing or most of last season when we were crying out for leaders.
When will he go missing the next time? I don't trust him so want him out so that someone who at least wants to make the effort every week can come in. He shouldn't need motivating, his own professional pride should be there.
