Our u23 leading just before half time away at man Utd. We got a good youth side. Best reading other day 3-0


1.) 30 Jan 2017 19:59:24
Donkor looks like he will be a handful good feet for a big lad. He might make the first team earlier than expected.

2.) 30 Jan 2017 21:22:11
Agree donkor looks like a player he set up goals tonight and his scarred the life out of the utd defender

3.) 30 Jan 2017 23:16:27
Donker looks good, quick and can see a pass. Sambou is a beast. 3-1 win. Unsworth not there tonight? Ebrell looking after the boys.



27 Jan 2017 19:50:54
All this talk about Baxter getting a deal and Bill being slagged off by some made me wonder. Does Bill or moshiri or rk deal with contract negotiations or is it left to chief executive or someone else?


{Ed025's Note - i think thats steve walsh,s bag now geoff, but im sure moshiri and kenwright have some input mate..

1.) 26 Jan 2017 20:37:12
Like Ed says let's get there on merit

However if United win the EFL Cup and one of the others in the current top 6 wins the FA Cup then 6th and 7th would get Europa spots as I understand it.

2.) 26 Jan 2017 20:57:22
I think if united win the FA cup as well we'd get a spot too as they can't have 2 European spots. There used to be a rule that the FA cup runner up got the spot but I think that changed a few years ago.

3.) 27 Jan 2017 20:33:03
What do you think of the Baxter situation Ed? Was he good enough to give a second chance to or do you think it's sending out all the wrong signals

{Ed025's Note - it amazed me to be honest AB, hes a very lucky lad that everton are such a caring and generous club, but if he blows it this time i will have no sympathy whatsoever mate..

4.) 27 Jan 2017 21:13:49
To be honest Ed everyone deserves a second chance and I know drugs are everywhere but like I said does this send out the wrong signals that everyone else can do things like this and get another chance

{Ed025's Note - yeah but does anyone deserve a third one AB?, jose has just won the lottery for me mate..

5.) 27 Jan 2017 21:38:37
Not for me mate after what he done I think he's won the euro lottery mate

{Ed025's Note - and a triple rollover at that AB.. :)

6.) 27 Jan 2017 21:36:15
Sorry, but I don't want Utd to win anything, even if it means we miss out on Europe. Can't stand that smug manager of their's.
If we are going to qualify for Europe then let's do it on our own merits, not somebody else's.

7.) 27 Jan 2017 21:56:12
Kenwright and Elstone still conduct transfer negotiations which while surprising does answer a few questions.

8.) 27 Jan 2017 22:08:03
Hi woburnblue were not going to get Europe this year because utd aren't going to win anything so don't worry

9.) 27 Jan 2017 22:19:35
Hope you're right AB. ⚽️

10.) 28 Jan 2017 06:30:45
They should sit Baxter down, tell him it's his last chance, then get him to listen to the words of the song Story of the Blues by wah.



23 Jan 2017 07:49:01
One of the papers reporting we after ivanovic as a replacement for jags. Why would we but a 32 year old to replace a 34 year old? Surely someone younger would be better?


1.) 23 Jan 2017 08:45:21
Good player, can play right across the back, two years younger at this level is huge.

2.) 23 Jan 2017 08:57:19
Know what you mean, I was against fonte coming for as large a fee as he went for at 33, but Ivanovic will probably be a nominal fee with his contract up in the summer. Might tide us over if other targets aren't available at this time.

3.) 23 Jan 2017 09:13:15
What doesn't ring true for me is that Chelsea switched to the 3 at the back similar to what we are playing and Ivanovic was allegedly deemed to slow to be playing in that formation for them, so seems strange for us to be interested

4.) 23 Jan 2017 14:05:33
Can also play in front of defence, the guy is a destroyer.



31 Aug 2016 22:07:22
Seems spurs matched our bid for Sissoko.

Que sera sera.




10 Aug 2016 23:17:29
Just heard yarmolenko, manny fernandes and riquelme are all signing tomorrow. Hahaha. wonder who we will get that's out the blue signing?


1.) 11 Aug 2016 10:29:31
Heard that's only the start. Moutinho and winnie parks are set for a dead line day move.

2.) 11 Aug 2016 11:40:58
Do not forget ever banaga.

3.) 11 Aug 2016 11:45:23
Also seen Steven defour in maccys in town with rk.

4.) 11 Aug 2016 16:19:32
Ravaneli as well, he is bringing his own gas camping stove.

Omg Geri just came on for Spain and won a penalty. It was a pen but he went done like he'd been shot. Didn't think he was anywhere near the Spain squad.


1.) 28 Mar 2017 21:55:32
Then he scores and had a couple good runs.

Btw video technology sorted 2 decisions correctly. definitely the way forward.



28 Mar 2017 17:50:32
Just following on from ed2 reply to degsy below.

Ed you really do know a lot about the ins and outs and dodgy (allegedly) dealings that go on in the world of football. Are you sure you are not sepp blatter or jerome francke (or whatever his name is) ?

Thanks for keeping us informed with this knowledge and advice.


{Ed002's Note - I can never be sure.}



27 Mar 2017 22:26:25
Ed. Noticed lower down that you stayed the club cannot get loans for new stadium.

Could they not use the new stadium as collateral for the loans required to build it?

I am no accountant and therefore don't care but as long as the club can cover any debt then just hope this stadium comes to fruition.


{Ed002's Note - No Geoff, they have no credit.}

1.) 28 Mar 2017 07:21:50
Thanks ed. A lot more positive over this with Mr moshiri in charge. He seems determined to make Everton more successful on and off the field.

2.) 28 Mar 2017 07:26:25
Dont get me wrong. It's great the council are helping us out but seems to only be because mayor Anderson wants the commonwealth games and our stadium will provide the centrepiece of the bid.
I wonder how co-operative they would be if they didn't want the games in our city.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 22:20:13
The legacy will be the revival of North Liverpool docklands. Merseyside is increasing population fast and the city is tiny for the amount of visitors to it. We need expansion and this will speed up that process.

Also peel want to invest but at a more leisurely pace. This gives them an excuse to quicken up some of their development for the area and to test the water on whether it is worth 5 bil in investment.



25 Mar 2017 07:59:40
I think everyone is just waiting to hear how bad seamus' injury actually is and how long he is possibly out for.

We as fans need to sing his name loudly and proudly in our next home game to let him know we are there for him every step of his recovery.
Just hope it's not a career ender.


1.) 25 Mar 2017 11:33:36
Double fracture, been reported here in Ireland. At least 6 months out
Long haul back to where he's been, hope he makes it.

2.) 25 Mar 2017 12:38:35
As someone who knows about orthopaedics I keep hearing about the length of his time out and liking it to Bolassie. Generally a fracture is far less serious than a ligament injury so let's just wait and see. Incidentally did you know the break actually becomes stronger.

3.) 25 Mar 2017 13:01:39
Yeah trebor. Ross Barkley is testament to that. He had a bad leg break too as a youngster. I wasn't comparing Coleman's and bolasie injuries. More that they can keep each other positive during long spells out.



24 Mar 2017 22:08:44
Confirmed leg break and hospital. Sending all our best wishes to Seamus and hope he back soon.

For whatever reason, sky have focussed a lot on Everton today. Interviews with lots of people around the club.
Just wanna echo big praise for what we do in the community and the big push the new 'owner' has enabled for players, staff and stadium.
going to be a really exciting next few years I think.

I agree to a point ed but if we got him, he wouldn't have played ahead of lukaku. He probably wouldn't have even got a look in.
Better for the guy to bang them in for saints and we look for someone to replace Rom, if he goes (hope He dont)


{Ed025's Note - i get that geoff but what a back up and a player to spur rom to even dizzier heights mate......... by the way sky have just done a piece on the work everton in the community do, i am massively proud to be a part of this club and the work we do for the less fortunate especially the homeless and disabled..great stuff..

In all fairness I would hope no one listens to talksport ever again. They have recently (last year) been bought by the owners of the S*n. Think we should stand with the reds and boycott the station on this principle.

Anyway I hope Rom stays and fires us to success. He could become an absolute blue legend of he does.

Gazzetta dello sport saying he going on loan with a view to 15m deal at the end of season. That would be a nice profit for a player who doesn't seem to be in rk's plans

I managed osmanlispor on football manager (the bible) and he was good player. Never seen him in real but Walsh knows his stuff.

We just got to hope it doesn't go like West ham, Southampton, Sunderland who all struggled when they moved stadiums. There probably be loads of others.

I bet we have a list of players none of us have even ever heard of. Steve Walsh and his team seem to be good at picking gems up, as his track record proves.
He just had to be aware whether they can work with rk and in his style of play.

Very kind of you for that detailed information, ed.
Football has become more business and political than actually playing for the fun of it.


{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Geoff. You are right about it being very much big business now.

Long gone are the days of the cloth-capped, hobnailed-booted, chimney sweep making his way, rattle in hand, to cheer on his team at Goodison on a Saturday afternoon before a few pints of wallop in the pub and home to thrash the wife and kids.}

I understand that ed and you are right but how many of those players out on loan from, say chelsea, will come back and get first team football there.
Lukaku is perfect example. Loaned out to West Brom then Everton and eventually sold for a nice profit.
Are these club treating these players like property to sell for a profit after a couple of years?


{Ed002's Note - Some of the loan player will be integrated back in to the first team squad - two or three this summer - some will leave to join the clubs they have been on loan at as better players - some will go elsewhere as better players - some will stay on loan with Chelsea. If they cannot settle (e.g. De Bruyne, Salah, Cuadrado) then loans, improvement and sales gets income for the club - but all were originally putrchased to play for Chelsea, not to profiteer on. If they don't make the grade after a loan (e.g. McEachran, Bamford) they are given the opportunity to restart their career elsewhere. If there are other reasons the club are not happy with a player or there has been any sort of intolerable incident then they are moved on (e.g. Lukaku). If a player makes unreasonable demands on the club (e.g. Solanke) then they are moved on. But critical to all of this is that there is a plan, there are relationships with other sides that see players develop and there is a structure & process in place that supports this. It works very well for Chelsea and others are seeing that it is a system they should be looking to.}
