Paper talk: Star says Barcelona are monitoring Richarlison. I would guess every team in Europe is. Any knowledge Ed001/ 002? Is there any real interest? I would think a front 2 of Kane and Richarlison would be unstoppable. Well I would hate to have to try and stop them!


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in Richarlison being expressed by Barcelona at this time, but it is fair to say that they are looking to replace their attacking players over the next 18 months or so. But right now they have been looking at other options. Melero being at a game was to check on Gomez. Perhaps he went back to spain raving about Richarlison, I don't know.}

1.) 10 Dec 2018 11:22:39
It's the star reporting this, says it all.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 12:47:04
Is it me or do these stories seem to come out the day of every game we have. pickford, gomes and now ricki. in the space of a week and a half. Will have no players by January at this rate.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 16:44:06
Take them with a pinch of salt Jacamo, will step up a notch with the transfer window approaching.

If anything is going to happen, it will happen between Everton and not the rags.

We will be linked with all sorts of strikers, mainly because the rags know we need one and throw enough strikers around, law-of averages say they might get one prediction right, nothing more than click bait and selling columns in the rags.

Enjoy tonight’s game Jacamo and don’t worry too much about what you read.

{Ed025's Note - your spot on bignev..



18 Nov 2018 07:37:47
Pickford to United apparently? If DeGea goes.


{Ed025's Note - cant see it degs...why would he downgrade?.. :)

1.) 18 Nov 2018 08:31:44
The way the team are starting to play a lot more name are going to be linked with other teams like Ed says it's a backward move for him.

{Ed025's Note - it will be richie next penysarn, well im afraid poor old everton dont need the money anymore..so shove it..

2.) 18 Nov 2018 11:18:53
Yeah degsy mate read that they would offer £60 million in their dreams mate, couple that with all the Mourinho rubbish going on at the mo, United are now a team in turmoil as Ed 025 says why would he go and drop to a lower club no chance, pipe dreams Mourinho has lost the plot.

3.) 18 Nov 2018 08:52:46
But Eds it's in the sun paper so it must be true haha :)

{Ed025's Note - dont even mention that scumbag paper around me penysarn, i hate it with a vengeance mate..

4.) 18 Nov 2018 17:08:57
It's really up to us, players want to win trophies in their short careers. If we start winning cups and get into Europe on a regular basis then the best players will want to play for us and stay. Stay in mid-table then we will lose our best players to more successful teams. Interesting that three of our ex-players played for England today, Dier, Stones and Barkley.

5.) 18 Nov 2018 18:32:39
Richarlison to Chelsea for £70m 😂😂
I love the international breaks 🤦🏻‍♂️.

6.) 18 Nov 2018 19:03:25
Should know better by now with the rags-or sky pundits, as soon as Everton show promise or a challenge to the sky darlings, the papers will do anything to link Everton players to one of of the darlings, to try and disrupt the good work done by Everton.

With the derby and the City games approaching, do not be surprised the Silva dispute being dragged up again in the press.

{Ed002's Note - The papers have nothing against Everton and are not trying to disrupt anything.}

7.) 19 Nov 2018 09:06:17
not everything is an agenda against efc, this happens with every club that has a few players playing well, they look at what the 'big 6' need and plug the gaps, see tarkowski in the summer, linked here there everywhere as he was playing well, in reality these sides probably didn't have a strong interest.

8.) 19 Nov 2018 09:59:43
Good comment mate.

9.) 19 Nov 2018 14:00:02
Liverpool and Chelsea have both spent over £70m each on new keepers, neither of whom are as good as Pickford IMHO. Add to that he's English [always ups the price] and has only just signed a 6yr deal and you're talking of a fee up around £100m Utd aren't going to fund a deal of that size without the guarantee of Champions League football and they're miles away from that this season.

10.) 19 Nov 2018 18:18:38
They would all leave us, first chance they got 😂😂😂.



25 Oct 2018 08:27:18
Thorgan Hazard being linked to us.


1.) 25 Oct 2018 11:06:00
i would do a little dance if we got him mate top player.

{Ed002's Note - The interest of Everton was when Sam Allardyce was manager and before Everton added to their collection of left wingers with the return of Lookman (who was expected by SA to be leaving), Bernard and Richarlison (and not forgetting Henry Onyekuru). Everton do not need another left winger right now - they need another right winger and that is why Jesus Corona has again been scouted.}

2.) 25 Oct 2018 12:28:32
Love it when we report a rumour and Ed 002 comes along and destroys it with a fact, and a logical basis for it too.

{Ed002's Note - There is no doubt that he is a very good player (and attracting the interest of a high-profile side) but if Everton were to look at yet another LW it would have to lead to questions being asked. Right now cover for AM and RW would seem to be the highest priorities.}

3.) 25 Oct 2018 20:03:53
Is Lozano a player we’ve looked at for RW Ed? I saw today that Chelsea are interested in him.

4.) 25 Oct 2018 20:03:53
Is Lozano a player we’ve looked at for RW Ed? I saw today that Chelsea are interested in him.

{Ed002's Note - Yes he has been looked at, but realistically there is an issue with Everton looking to PSV for players and there are other sides interested.}

5.) 26 Oct 2018 08:21:16
RW must be a high priority? Why? I’m sure Bernard, Lookman or even Richarlison can play as a RW?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, many players can play out of position. Let's hope the club stop looking at RW and buy many, many more LW players.}

6.) 28 Oct 2018 06:52:24
I am sorry I posted now (not really) . In all seriousness, if we are looking to play Richarlison in a more central role (which I believe is the managers possible tactical idea with him) then that then leaves us a little weaker in numbers although at the end of the day quality is always better than quantity. It was just a rumour I picked up and had no basis other than that. Thanks for info Ed002. What will be will be.



18 Sep 2018 11:48:50
As the post mortem on Saturday seems to be continuing I thought I would add the simple truth: TOO MANY CHANGES! Yes it is complicated, but the facts are simple. We have changed too many things in such a short time. I am not blaming the manager because I feel he is taking us in the right direction. But we have been a victim of: 2 sending offs. and thus suspensions. Injuries to 7 1st team players. Players coming back from injury who the manager feels should start. Young players trying to force their way into the team. Tactical changes. All of this adds up and the team that played Saturday did not look like the previous weeks team and that one did not look like the one before that etc. We need to get our players all back and let the manager pick the same team for a few weeks running. Then we will know what our squad is really like. We have been very unfortunate on a number of issues, but compare it with last season and the run of games that bored us all to death. We are a WORK IN PROGRESS. Anyone who expects instant success is just being silly in my view!


1.) 18 Sep 2018 14:52:29
Well said work in progress the summer was good business but people have to remember it was his first window and we probably shifted a lot more out than I though we woul be able to and made signings I didn’t think we could get.
A lot of Silva/ Brands signings have not played much yet and some not at all, I just hope Mina can be are powerhouse at the back as I think it will help Keane, holgate and zouma better we need a leader back there, we got bullied on Sunday.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 17:06:25
What is worrying though is Zouma and Gomes are on loan, while Mina has a buy back clause in his contract, that’s three players we have no control over.

{Ed002's Note - There is control over Yerry Mina - "buy back" clauses do not m,ean that Barcelona can simply pay Everton and they have to send him back. Plus, given the outrageous price Everton paid for him I don't see any chance of him going back in the short to medium term.}

3.) 18 Sep 2018 17:53:10
Excellent post degsy mate, too many managers on here, once we get the injured and suspended and settled in with the newbies we will climb the table, give the guy a chance this won't be fixed in 6 months.

4.) 18 Sep 2018 18:48:21
I'm sure ed will correct me but isn't the buy back clause about twice what we paid for him so something about 70 mil I for 1 hope Barcelona wish to try to use it because if he's playing good enough to warrant that fee it will be good for us.

{Ed002's Note - It is rather less than 70M in whatever currency you are thinking, but it is nothing to worry about, nor nothing to even think about. I would not think they would be interested when Everton come to sell the player on.}

5.) 18 Sep 2018 18:53:37
Cheers ed.

6.) 18 Sep 2018 21:45:06
On Gomes, I believe Barcelona wanted permanent deal before agreeing to loan, so even if he is successful we probably will be able to sign him. Problem is if other teams come in for him. Zouma may seek permanent transfer after seasons end. Depends what Chelsea can off in terms of 1st team football.

7.) 19 Sep 2018 17:13:37
I’m probably late to the party on this but if the penalty is a point deduction then what is the maximum number of points that can be deducted?

{Ed025's Note - i dont know to be honest CT..

8.) 19 Sep 2018 17:50:41
Thanks Ed. Sorry I realize I posted this on the wrong thread.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

9.) 19 Sep 2018 18:05:53
Again I may be wrong but if memory serves me right didn't Luton get docked 30 pts for something along these lines many years ago.

{Ed025's Note - dont say that james...i was thinking 2 or 3..

10.) 19 Sep 2018 20:09:23
It was bugging me so had a little look into It they were docked 30 pts but 20 were for insolvency problems
That was added to 10 points they were docked for illegal payments to agents so hopefully worst case 10 pts.

{Ed025's Note - still far too much james, it would be hard to recover from a 10pt deficit mate and the pressure of being rock bottom hard to overcome....slap on the wrist im hoping for..

11.) 19 Sep 2018 21:25:04
Same here ed but I can't help but fear the worst at some point they will make an example of someone and with the previous we have and the other ongoing issues I feel we could be the example I just wish that it wasn't going to drag onto the new year and I hope it's given the club the jolt it needs to get things in order and start to do things the correct way.

{Ed025's Note - lets just hope they give us a hefty fine and warn us about our future conduct james, im sure our legal team can bribe the panel as it wont be the first time a brown envelope has passed their way mate.. :)

12.) 19 Sep 2018 22:54:06
Well we were also the honorary (and one of very few) recipients of the retroactive diving ban. So I’m sure we can expect something great.



08 Aug 2018 13:40:50
Drinkwater now linked. Would be great for us.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 13:54:37
He's slower than a slug. Do we need another slow midfielder?

2.) 08 Aug 2018 14:49:18
Not exactly the powerhouse box to box midfielder that typically plays in Silva’s systems is he?

3.) 08 Aug 2018 15:32:09
He can do the Shnieds job much better great sighning.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 17:20:38
He's been terrible for Chelsea when he's managed to get on the pitch.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 21:13:56
Had one good season next to Kante but nothing since.

I would like him to do well being an English player and this is the sort of player that we could attract but I don’t think this wasn’t another case of Chelsea ruining an English player, he just wasn’t good enough in the first place, not for us and certainly not for champs league and title contender team.

30 Dec 2018 09:00:54
OK I bit my tongue for a while but reading all the posts below just tells me that some of you cannot see the fire for the smoke! Firstly I will point out what I have been saying for ages. Forget about center forwards for a moment. Look at the result. Look at how we conceded. Look at how the team was set up. I am so pleased with Silva at times. The players he has brought in. The way we attack again. How close we are to having a really great team. He has us playing football again. Now the sting in the tail (but I still want Silva) . he had a run of games when Mina first recovered from injury when he played a back 4. Mina looked like a giant. Since then, he has played back 5's and other weird formations and tinkered a little bit too much for my liking. I would have been happier yesterday with a bck 4 and in fact the same team as last week! Why change it so dramatically after such a great performance? And now my main point. all season we have conceded goals from set pieces. We set up with zonal marking. We concede a goal nearly every game whoever we play. A decent center forward will not stop that. Better defending will. It should be easy to cure. Watch videos af all the games. I am sure Mr Silva is looking at this. It used to happen under Roberto Martinez. We just couldn't defend set pieces. We have conceded 30 goals and I would bet a huge chunk of those were set pieces. Literally a few minutes each game. that's all we have to improve on. Surely that is just coaching and tactics? Yes a center forward would be nice. But like ED002 says from money from where for a really top one? It has to be a kid or last legs player or an unknown one. Anyway the easy way of climbing that table is to concede fewer goals from set pieces!


1.) 30 Dec 2018 09:55:30
I totally agree, Silva should never of changed a winning team, did we need a back 5 against a team who cannot score, no we didn't, we played into there hands and got punished, hope he learns his lesson.

{Ed025's Note - im with you simon..

2.) 30 Dec 2018 10:13:47
Great post, balanced and objective and pretty spot on. Last season conceded 8 goals from set pieces -this season 10 already. Worth pointing out in case anyone had forgotten though last season we shipped a league high 46 from open play. Further supports the simple fact if sort out set pieces we will be much more solid, as this season we have only shipped 16 from open play. We may be moving side ways in terms of points/ position but I have at least enjoyed some games this season, last year even the victories left a sour taste!

3.) 30 Dec 2018 10:30:39
Thanks for that stat EFCONE. It perfectly demonstrates what I am on about. I would guess if we could cut out just half of those goals we would be higher up that table. I have seen too many goals this season whereby we have controlled the game, looked like we would get something out of it and then given a corner or free kick away. and I immediately think, "why not just improve our defending at set pieces? " that's where we are losing these points. So 30 less conceded from open play! That tells a story and I am sure Mr Silva will see this and have statititions telling him all of this. A good manager listens as well as talks!

4.) 30 Dec 2018 10:53:06
degs not that i dnt agree with a lot ov what u said but you contradicted yourself as you said you wanted a back 4 and the same team as last week, we played a 3 aat the back last week and won 5-1 am putting yesterday down to one ov those days, just lile spurs had just lile Leicester had leeds had there wer loads of mad results yesterday.



28 Dec 2018 16:50:18
I guess I am on a roll so here's another opinion: We were leaking goals and dropping points until Mina got fit and slotted into the team. Then we had a couple of wins and draws where we did not concede. Then he rested/ dropped Mina and it went tits up. Mina came back into the team last game and we picked up again. I think Mina is a must and he needs someone to partner him with pace. I would try Mina and Holgate together.


1.) 29 Dec 2018 02:04:46
Did you forget about the City game where Mina gifted City possession for their first goal.

Other than that Mina is ours and not a loanee, so would go along with playing Mina regular.

2.) 29 Dec 2018 07:08:33
Mina starts every game. He and Keane should be our permanent pairing and let them settle together. They can both defend and can weigh in with a goal or two. In fact settle the entire back line. The more they work as a regular unit the tighter we will become. There will be errors like Mina at City but we will get away with a few too.

I do like Zouma, but he’s on loan and has said he’s looking forward to proving himself at Chelsea when he returns.

3.) 29 Dec 2018 08:31:31
Yes he was to blame at Man City. But who was to blame for the other 26 goals we have conceded in just 19 games? I was sort of trying to make 2 points. firstly everyone seems obssessed with us getting a center forward when we are leaking goals at the back. We have actually been quite good on the goals for front. But whilst we leak goals, there is too much pressure on us to score 2 or 3 every game. So my second point was that we seemed to have sorted the conceding thing whenMina came into the team. excepting the Man City game. so I personally think he is number one in and actually would like to see him have a go with Holgate but yes accept him and Keane have done pretty well together.

4.) 29 Dec 2018 19:11:22
Me two, forget about a striker start at the back.



28 Dec 2018 08:03:59
I have not posted a while but thought I would slip one in for those people who still come on with the gloom and negative posts. It is true that we have a similar points tally as last season and that for all the money spent we are in a similar position. The big difference is in consistency. We were quite terrible for most of last season with only one or two decent performances. This season we seem to be blowing a bit hot and cold. One week we look fantastic and the next we are poor. All we need to do now is start putting a decent run together and for the manager to decide on his best team and formation. He still tinkers a bit but it is a big squad now so guess we need to shake things up now and again? But compared to last season this is sometimes champagne football.


{Ed025's Note - it is degsy, what we have to realize though is that this regime is in its infancy, it would be amazing luck for it all to click together this soon, we have a manager who has never had such a high profile club and a DOF who is new to the club as well as a host of new players, it will take time mate and those who thought it would be any different are naive to say the least..

1.) 28 Dec 2018 10:25:32
wer on the right path degs.

2.) 28 Dec 2018 11:30:22
Excellent post degsy mate and great reply from Ed 025.i don't buy into we only Burnley, Crystal Palace rubbish just ask Chelsea or Man City any team from the Premiership can beat each other there are no easy games, so let's all enjoy the ride we are on with Marcel and Marco we certainly don't want to go back to last years dross, Happy New Year all.

3.) 28 Dec 2018 11:39:29
I just look at how we went about 5 games last season without registering a shot on target. This season we have had loads of chances, loads of goals but have conceded loads too. I can see we would improve with a center forward, but I honestly believe we need to tighten up more at the back first. I think we have only had 4 clean sheets all season? That is normally relegation type stats. but we are scoring so are getting some results. Much better that the boring dross we were watching last season. let's hope the manager can identify why we are conceding so many. cut a few out and bring in the right players to help us defend better. mainly at set pieces! If we can do that, we will do alright and climb that table further without talking about center forwards.



03 Dec 2018 08:50:56
What is obvious to me is yes we are all dissapointed. but we are all proud of our team again. Yes someone said thankyou Mr Silva. I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you Mr Silva. please keep signing players of the quality and who fit in so seamlessly the way you have already. Amazing progress! Amazing. Even Kloppety klopp said so.


{Ed025's Note - absolutely degsy, and a big shout to marcel as well and mr moshiri for making it all possible mate..

1.) 03 Dec 2018 10:49:48
Everton fan's celebrating a loss against a top six team sounds about right!

2.) 03 Dec 2018 11:30:33
Not sure what your point is Geri, just over a year ago Everton looked the worst I have seen for many a year, the football was dreadful.

In just 5 months, this football club has been stripped, readdressed with new signings and better man management.

What Silva and Brands has done in such a short time is nothing but amazing, add to that Moshis backing and that in less than 6 months.

Players who were struggling are now benefiting under Silva, Keane, Siggerson, add to that Digni, Bernard, Richarlison, Gomes, Mina, all quality players brought in.

Klopp has been over the park and has taken years to build his own team, Silva has had one transfer window.

Depends how you class Lookman as a winger or centre forward if winger then we had Calvert Lewin as a sole striker with Tosun unused, they had 5 strikers in all that played yesterday.

Silva will address the striker problem but to finish off, we are not celebrating a defeat, we are celebrating a new dawn at Everton Football Club, something only an Evertonian can today.



27 Nov 2018 12:22:05
Been a little while since I posted so here goes wiyth my latest thoughts: Most people on here know I was a depressed downer on here during Roberto Martinez's and Ronald Koeman's reigns. I said I would give the new manager 5 games to make my mind up and my goodness the difference from last season even before he got all his excellent signings fit. I couldn't be happier. But this brings me to my point today. I feel we have progressed to the poit we were at during Moyes' last couple of years. I expect us to now kick on and make a few more signings that take us into that elusive top 6. That will mean holding onto our better youngsters and adding to them. It will also mean bringing players from the youth system into the 1st team over a period of time rather than like last season where they were literally chucked in with little support from existing players and quality. It is now abundantly clear that Williams and Martina are not Premiership quality any more. Add to that youn Kenny and Holgate were either not up to standard just yet or are still a bit too young. Keane looks a different player with established players to partner him. Anyway, what will be important for us is our next 2 or 3 signings. Then injuries and suspensions will play a part too. We need to have good discipline and honest endeavour in our next games. Particularly this weekend. Yes we now have able deputies in most positions, but it is now clear that when we are at full strength, we are able to challenge the top part of the table. So these attributes are of highest importance. Discipline and good fitness.

Holgate will become a fine player. He is still much too young to be a commanding CH as yet though. 2 more years will show what he is capable of becoming.

Like I said in the banter post. it appears all the comments about Lookman being unhappy are coming from the Leipzig boss. I can only think he is trying to unsettle Lookman and Everton.


{Ed002's Note - Lookman wanted assurances and is now having to watch Everton hunt around for players in his position - the likes of Rebic, Malcom, Brahimi and Richarlison all being mentioned. He knows he can get first team football in Germany and certainly Trimboli has spoken to the likes of Southampton, Arsenal, Spartak and Crystal Palace as well as RBL.}

Sorry didn't see your other post Ed002. Wow we are still paying Rooney that much? And 2 previous manager salaries! Plus which players would be happy to take a step down and a salary reduction? I think Everton have had too much turnover of staff in recent years and tied themselves up in contracts galore! I will have a look for your previous post. Suffice it to say, I expect little change in the staff at Everton.

Yes Ed, he is still a child. Imagine what he will be like at say 27 if his body has not had injury after injury. I do feel refs are not protecting him even tho he does get a bit amateur dramatics.


{Ed025's Note - hes a big unit though degsy and he is a lot stronger and better than all this diving lark, i would like to see him put it about a bit more myself mate..

Davies has ability DFS he just needs to listen to his coaches. If you remember the goal he got against Man City when he first burst onto the scene, he was 18? Ok he is 21 now and does as you say run around a bit too much, but I thought Gomez would be able to help him positionally. we will have to wait and see. In theory Davies could do the holding midfielder. He is strong, good engine, fast enough and can tackle a bit. With good coaching over say 2 seasons he would be an excellent holding midfielder. if he listens.


{Ed025's Note - hes a bit lightweight for me degsy and gives the ball away too much, im not giving up in him just yet but its time for him to step up to the plate mate..

Nice point Smit666. I reckon Richarlison is doing great for a 21 year old. Playing for anyone else he would be getting loads of free kicks for fouls on him. I know he bhaves like a baby at times but some of the fouls are blatant with people climbing all over him and coming through the back.


{Ed025's Note - he has been copying neymar a bit degsy but the guy is certainly talented, he will score goals for sure..

Both Calvert Lewin and Richarlison are 21 I believe? Both very young and will improve if referees protect them. Too early for judging them just yet.
