Did we put a bid in for tielemans ed? I'm hearing he's signed for Monaco which is a shame.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained this on a number of occasions - try the search engine.}



26 Mar 2017 11:09:58
So what does everyone make of the 40m + Batshuayi reports for Lukaku? . We want 70m so I'm not sure why we should accept that a 32m flop is still worth 30m? .


1.) 26 Mar 2017 13:16:34
My Thoughts exactly Gibbo.

2.) 26 Mar 2017 15:19:32
Batshuayi is far from a flop, he needs game time, I like the player, if Chelsea upped their price plus the player and Lukaku insists he wants away I would certainly take the player on offer.

{Ed002's Note - Everton has zero interest in the player.}



08 Aug 2016 20:07:08
18m bid rejected for Bolasie according to a reputable newspaper. Going back in with a second bid. I rate the guy, would sort out our left wing, be a great signing.


1.) 08 Aug 2016 20:30:48
I hope we get him.

2.) 08 Aug 2016 20:30:48
1 massive problem there pal. no such thing as a reputable newspaper lol.



26 Jun 2016 18:56:20
Ed002, who are you? . You're like the Batman of this website, dark and brooding, but very proficient at what you do and nobody really knows who you are. Do you have a sidekick? .


{Ed002's Note - #WonderDogSparky.}

A newspaper have just ran a story, it's Farhad Moshiri.


1.) 27 Feb 2016 10:18:58
It's in The Telegraph.

Usmanov has paid approx 200m for his Arsenal Shares

Roughly the same amount to purchase EFC
WHAT a coincidence.

2.) 27 Feb 2016 10:50:20
Yeah I did say the telegraph but it got changed to "a newspaper", do you work for the daily fail ed πŸ˜‰

He's not super rich but I do like how it says Bill will still have a place at the club.

3.) 27 Feb 2016 10:53:40
Bk will be kept on as well which is a good thing. Get rid of the rest.

4.) 27 Feb 2016 14:46:42
Lets hope they do not keep Martinez on.

Got to say I said I'd give koeman 15 games at least to allow players to bed in before I made a judgement but selection was wrong again. In all walks of life if you continue doing the same thing and get the same result, you can't expect change. It's not rocket science.


{Ed025's Note - your right gibbo...how many times to you have to get smacked in the face before you learn to duck?..

1.) 28 Sep 2017 22:20:38
its not about players bedding in its a shambles 2 holding mids and 3 number 10's again, lookman for davies instead of klaasan an it would had been game over, he is clueless, forget 15 games get him out now, dunc and unsworth in temporary charge, guarentee they will play with balance and players in right positions.

2.) 28 Sep 2017 22:47:28
My point was nothing about players bedding in, it was an opinion on how long I'd give him to get it right. He needs to mix in the players with youth and pace with the experience, it's all experience and it's not working. You look at our bench tonight and we had bags of pace on there, rotate the team more with a few pacey players on there.



09 Sep 2017 21:33:18
Just got back from the game, don't get up to many these days living down south but I must say the highlight of my day was meeting Speedo Mick.


1.) 10 Sep 2017 11:54:55
Must have been a rubbish day if that was your highlight!



09 Aug 2017 10:06:57
Got a question for you all, if we signed no more players would you be happy with our transfer window? .

I think the way you have to look at it is are we stronger now than before the window. looking at the positions, goalkeeper (definitely) defence (yes) , midfield (yes) , the only position up for debate really is attack, are Rooney and Sandro going to be as good as lukaku, it's hard to say until the season starts. I would be happy if we didn't sign anymore players but I do think we need a target man for a different dimension up front. People think we need more pace but don't forget we have Bolasie and Coleman coming back but we really don't have a target man.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 10:27:04
No I wouldn't be happy, it was quite clear in pre season we are light up top, and we need a big man up top.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 10:56:07
agree totally with scousedownsouth, no idea who disagreed with him though and why.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 12:02:13
wouldn't be happy, and neither would the club considering manager has stated what he needs.

more signings will be coming in everyone needs to relax there is still three weeks.

4.) 09 Aug 2017 14:27:49
No definitely need a centre forward.



10 Jul 2017 19:37:36
What does everyone make of the rather "conservative" away kit? .


{Ed025's Note - not a fan myself gibbo..

1.) 10 Jul 2017 19:54:03
I really like it.

2.) 10 Jul 2017 20:09:56
I have to agree ed, it's a bit insipid and doesn't seem to have much presence. Hopefully farhad will sort Adidas out for us in a few seasons! Haha.

3.) 10 Jul 2017 20:21:22
i don't care if they turn up in boxers and vests boys as long as we win sumthin.

4.) 10 Jul 2017 20:40:01
prefer it over the home kit. The home kit looks like they where sat in the board room. " so the Everton shirt. Any suggestions? " . No? Oh wait what's that over there in the bin? . Ah that's last years Sunday league template. Oh bloody hell marvelous idea! Let's stick an efc badge on it . Job done!

{Ed025's Note - i knew you would have some inside info for us sir loin.. :)

5.) 10 Jul 2017 21:10:13
They're both minging.

6.) 10 Jul 2017 21:20:20
I'm with you chaps. I actually think the light blue training top is the nicest of all of em. but for the chance to play on that turf infront of 40,000 I'd play stark b@ll@ch naked! And I'd pay for the priveledge😁.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely jcl..

7.) 11 Jul 2017 06:24:37
lol ED! . Do you like it? . For me it's a minute downer on next season . And when I say minute yeah I mean it haha. We're signing all these boss players and are kit is the worst one we have had for well since I can remember ( only 22) mind so I'm sure there has been much worse

every fan concept I have seen has been 10x better imo.

Anyway it is only the kit and i bloody can't wait for the season to KO. Most excited/ optomistic I've ever been for the future

and who knows I could be witnessing us win something for the first time in the near future!

{Ed025's Note - they can wear blue mankini,s for me sir loin so long as we win games.. :)

8.) 11 Jul 2017 08:43:57
Not as bad as the home kit but still looks like training gear to me. Fingers crossed for the 3rd kit.

9.) 12 Jul 2017 01:29:37
Look like pyjamas, Wayne will like them. πŸ˜€.



08 Jul 2017 09:15:52
If sky is to be believe and it's 75m, plus 15m in add on's and Rooney for Lukaku then Bill, Farhad and everyone else deserves a big round of applause for that deal. It has to be said over the years we may not have excelled buying players until now, but always came out with quite simply astonishing deals whilst selling, 28m for Felliani, 47-8m for Stones and now 90m for Lukaku. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ».


1.) 08 Jul 2017 10:14:27
Finally Rom has left the building. I wish him the best of luck and thank him for what he done for EFC. But I won't miss his whining on about Champions League and wanting to play for a top team. He should remember playing for us has got him his Dream Move, and that Everton are a top club who were sleeping for a while but are now waking up.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 09:22:18
On another note, can I just say Ed002 that the few don't speak for the many with their disgraceful behaviour. Hope you stay on board with the site.

I don't get this obsession with 2 holding midfielders either, I'm sure Gueye is good enough to handle the role on his own. We could then play Sigurdsson/ Klassen/ Davies in a deep playmaking role, driving through the middle, with Rooney/ Sigurdsson behind the striker, then Lookman or Bolasie (on his return) on the left and Vlasic/ Mirallas on the right providing pace on the wings. Schneiderlin could rotate with Gueye. Can't be any worse than the last 2 games. We've shopped 6 goals in 2 games so it's not like the defence is any better with 2 midfielders in front of them.

Rumours seem to be coming from a Spanish journalist ed after a bit of digging. Not a high level source at all, if it hits sky then I'll start to take notice.


{Ed002's Note - As I have explained (a) Everton can buy Diego Costa from Chelsea and they would be pleased to sell, but I doubt the player would want to move out of his comfort zone of sunny South America or Spain to move to the grim, wet and cobbled streets Northwest of England where there would be a significant cultural change, smog, dead & dying pit ponies laying on the street, little chance of football at the highest level and only chips and fried curry to eat. (b) Loan the player from Chelsea if they have a confirmed buyer.

What can't happen is that Atletico Madrid buy the player and loan him to Everton.

I appreciate that this is something that most of you cannot come to grips with.}

Correction 2 of the next 3 games.

I think if he doesn't win at least 3 of the next 3 games then it's curtains. Tomorrow is literally a must win, Lose the Europa league game and I think that'll be it for us in Europe so again I think that's a pivotal game too.

I just hope he mixes it up with a bit of pace, if I see 2 holding midfielders and 3 no.10's again I may scream.

Happen to agree, went up for the Spurs game and I appreciate we got hammered but at 0-0 the atmosphere still wasn't the best.
