The rags now saying we want Tammy Abraham as part of any Rom deal to Chelsea.
Kid looks quality but it's huge step from Bristol city (loan) to the premier league and I think we need a ready-to-go replacement for Rom, when he goes.


1.) 19 May 2017 13:01:16
Do you remember when rooney stepped in as a kid or when Owen stepped in as a kid.

2.) 19 May 2017 13:55:32
£60 million Abraham and Michu Bats and I would be happy.

3.) 19 May 2017 15:04:19
Yeah, shakey, I do but less clubs throw kids in these days as first choice players. He be good as back up to learn from a recognised top quality striker with a view to becoming first choice.



16 May 2017 06:58:32
3 more names linked today.
Lanzini- I like him, only 24.
Andre gray- fast but not sure if he top quality, only 25 tho.
Mauricio lemos from las Palmas - only 21.

Seems like rk picking up some younger players to add to lookman, Davies, Schneiderlin etc.

Maybe looking to move on/ retire players like Barry, Williams, even jags.


{Ed025's Note - they wont be the only ones geoff, we are going to have a squad bigger than an american football team if you believe all these papers mate..

1.) 16 May 2017 08:32:23
I hope that we do have a big squad, one big enough to compete in every trophy and one that can propel us into the top 4. There needs to be experience though but who? Has the Rooney 'come home' malarkey been put to bed now Ed? I loved him hated, him and have warmed to him again and even as a romantic Evertonian that I am - I don't wis to see him back at Everton.
Dolberg is a must for me - I guess we need to see who is out though.

{Ed025's Note - rooney is not for me either nogbad, we should be looking forward not backwards for me mate..

2.) 16 May 2017 09:07:42
I agree nog. Break the bank for dolberg and sandro/ willian jose.
I like the other Ajax kid, Klassen too but think he'll go to a top top club.
Anyone for shaqiri from stoke?

3.) 16 May 2017 09:40:02
Dolberg won't be on the move this year unfortunately gents. I have been following the lad since last season, as I watch Ajax as much as I can. Shouted him up as a Rom replacement last summer time.

Dolberg has stated that he wants to play as much football as possible and will not move to a big club and jeopardise his chances of playing.

Furthermore to that, he has come out and said that he will be staying at Ajax as he wants to keep improving and scoring goals, he feels there is no better place to do that than at Ajax.

4.) 16 May 2017 09:50:51
Thanks jmw. Gutted though. We could both benefit if he was to use us as a stepping stone to the top. Suppose we hoping rk Dutch ideals and contacts may have made this work.

5.) 16 May 2017 10:03:35
No worries geoffjohno.

I know mate, for me he looks a top player, has a little bit of everything.

Finishing, strength, pace, technical ability, hold up/ link up play. The lot.

Hopefully Koeman thinks enough of him to go after him. We all know Ajax don't turn down good money for their players as they know they have another 2/ 3 coming through from each age group haha.

6.) 16 May 2017 16:35:25
I would go for Dolberg, if Lukaku is an Everton player come August, I will dig out a Morris dancing outfit whilst juggling 5 tennis balls playing the flute at the same time, he's going just a question of how much and when.

7.) 16 May 2017 20:43:49
I would pay to see that baz.



05 May 2017 10:19:51
Seems Chelsea may listen to offers for Willian. If we have him playing for us - great free kicks.


1.) 05 May 2017 13:10:32
He's one of my favourite prem players atm think he has desire passion and most of all talent. Would also love us to sign jermaine defoe. free to leave and will score no matter what guarantees you 15goals at least maybe more in our ever growing talented squad. Also he would help the younger ones emensely.

2.) 05 May 2017 15:48:11
Willian would be great down the right if we lose Geri. How long is Bolasie out for?

3.) 05 May 2017 18:18:52
Would rather loose geri and bollasie an get willian in.

4.) 06 May 2017 05:52:13
I'd rather Defoe as our striker coaching staff.



14 Apr 2017 12:28:12
I believe we should give ed2 a little break (think his head will explode) and talk about something other than Rom for a bit.

7 games to go. Pretty much assured of no worse than 7th. Do we start blooming some of the more promising kids, or will rk buy ready made replacements over the summer (he's done it at other clubs)?

I hope we give the youth a chance because just because we have money don't mean we need to spend it, if the kids are good enough.


{Ed033's Note - Well you know what they say; Rom wasn't built in a day.

1.) 14 Apr 2017 14:41:20
Be careful what you ask for GeoffJohno. Think for a moment what you have just asked for, no summer signings instead let our youth play.

Whilst most of us like to see our youth rising through the ranks I don't think many of us actually believe we have enough ready to play 1st team football on a regular basis.

We are a club that has attracted many international players to play for us or players who have hit the international stage whilst playing for us, now with all the best will in the world we will not get that many coming through the ranks.

For any team to be able to promote youngsters to the high standard we the supporters expect and demand we need seasoned players to show them how things are done. Seasoned and better players mean new signings. Don't stop signing players until a good one emerges from the youth side.

2.) 14 Apr 2017 18:22:04
Signings need to be made and if a youth player impresses and is good enough, like Davies, I think they will be given a chance.

3.) 14 Apr 2017 21:02:57
Rom wants a move. Kept that one quiet.

{Ed025's Note - love it baz..

4.) 15 Apr 2017 09:03:31
It's fine to give youth a chance. But the reality is they need to be as good as our aspirations if CL. Let's be honest. If we focused just on youth coming through we will linger mid table. We will need good signings to offset the deficiency that comes from having too much youth and that's experience and a little guile. This league already has six teams capable of CL qualification. For us to make it seven we will need some top signings of our own.



03 Apr 2017 20:11:26
Made up tom Davies signed 5 year deal with blues today.

On this Barkley non-announcement, it will happen in due course either way and don't forget England play Scotland on June 10th. The lad will have to keep training in and around the club until then before he has a holiday.
Also, if we starting our Europa campaign early, as I think we do, we any new need players in and pre-season handy to get the fitness level spot on for start of the season.




23 May 2017 07:38:11
Just wanna start by sending our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the Manchester incident last night. I'm sure there will be aome blues fans involved and we are thinking about you and your families.

Onto football matters (insignificant, I know. I see the rags are saying we going to miss out on sandro and gylfi wants 120k a week to sign for us (I'd pay him it) .


1.) 23 May 2017 08:41:26
I can't even think about football at the moment mate that's shocking what happened in Manchester God love them and there family's can't even go to a concert now with these sick animals out there. RIP.

2.) 23 May 2017 09:47:54
Agreed stef. Makes me wanna lock my doors and keep my kids safe but then the rats will win. Just vermin.

Also wanna praise the many Scousers who shot up in taxis, minibuses and cars to help get people safely home for free. Makes you realise there is good people out there.

3.) 23 May 2017 12:35:16
As a father of two daughters aged 10 and 7 who love Ariana Grande as much as I love Everton it is such a terrible terrible act. My daughters desperately wanted to go when she was coming here in September and I bought tickets for us three to go. Football becomes secondary at this moment. Our thoughts are with you guys.



21 May 2017 18:08:17
7th is still an improvement from last season and we have more optimism than before. It seems tho since top 10 was secure, players have gone off the boil. We had a pretty poor last couple of months especially away.
Koeman knows he got a lot of work to do over the summer, which may be a bit easier given no major international tournament but Ross and Rom future need sorting one way or the other asap so we can build a squad either around them or without them. (I feel ross is gone after koeman comments post match)


1.) 21 May 2017 23:11:21
Yes definitely an improvement, top 6 away we were a few points behind but well ahead of the rest of the league .
This summer is crucial we must improve the team and squad as a whole, the teams above will strengthen but we must keep pace and secure a couple of top players.
I can see the prem league Splitting further with the top clubs getting stronger, paying the wages to attract marquee signings and winning trophies!



18 May 2017 20:01:52
Would anyone, hypothetically, throw a bid in for vardy over the summer?


1.) 18 May 2017 20:19:42
I don't know about Vardy but it's going to be close for golden boot Kane just scored.

2.) 18 May 2017 21:04:03
Koemans style of play doesn't suit vardy and that is why he prefers big target men. Hardy is only really effective when opposition teams press a lot.



18 May 2017 09:24:17
Looks like gylfi not going to put transfer request in but didn't rule out a transfer.
Quote 'I'm happy here but it's up to the club if they wanna sell me. '

Rk and Mr moshiri get the chequebook out for him now.


1.) 18 May 2017 17:10:33
He won't go his goals and assists are worth more to Swansea than a £30mil transfer because he will keep them in them Orem and that is worth more to Swansea than the transfer fee. Thoughts ed?

{Ed002's Note - He will consider his options in the summer.}

Ed, are atletico focussing on Diego Costa? If so, that would make lukaku more likely to go to Chelsea?


{Ed002's Note - No Geoff - nothing Atletico are doing has any impact on Everton.}

Completely agree ed. Wasn't hahave a go at Jimmy. No one would know how it would escalate after sky money came in. Wages and transfer fees now resemble telephone numbers.

They were poor but They are young and came up against a great manager in mourinho. He knows how to grind finals out. Was a poor game from both sides.
One bad game doesn't make you poor just like one good game doesn't make you maradona. Rk and sw will have scouted our targets thoroughly and I hope players are brought in pretty quickly to gel with current squad.

Barkley is only going to a top 6 club if arsenal lose Sanchez or spurs lose alli.

Good point ed25. Do you agree with ed2 that koeman is embarrassing the club and being unprofessional?
As we all know and have said many times, Ross is a good player and started the season really well but he is so inconsistent and went off the boil.
Maybe koeman doesn't think he'll ever get consistency. He's tried arm round the shoulder, tried criticism and maybe he thinks he wants rid and bring other players in.


{Ed025's Note - ED002 has his opinions and i have mine geoff, i think koeman is doing exactly what i would have done if i were in charge so i find it hard to be critical, i would like ross to stay but dont see why we should kow tow to his every whim and if he wants away then fine, everton FC is the constant and players will come and players will go it happens at every club mate, his loss if you ask me..

Imo koeman had been forced to go public because ross has shown no interest in signing a new contract and the manager may want to know which players he can plan a squad round for the next 3/ 4 years etc.
Maybe koeman doesn't rate Ross and wants to 'force' him out. I don't know.
Don't think any of us know what conversations have been taking place behind closed doors and what advise Ross has been getting about other clubs (bigger) being interested.

On contracts. They were designed to state terms of employment and protect employees from the sack without due course. Obviously Ross is perfectly within his rights to stay the length of his and leave for free.
Football (and other sports) is just a whole business world unto itself.
I work and I couldn't imagine another company paying my boss to transfer me.

I suppose we got to hold on til 1st Sept and see which players we have and who has gone.


{Ed025's Note - i think koeman is baring his teeth with the ross situation geoff, its a statement of intent that the club will not be trifled with, local lad and evertonian who is an england international getting plaudits all over the place and hes told he can leave, it certainly sends a message out imo mate..
