One for the Ed's. Do you know if we are in any talks that may lead to bringing in a new left back. Silva has been playing Robinson quite a bit in pre-season so I have a feeling that he is being assessed to see if he is good enough to play as a back up LB.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot tell you about any talks just now but I understand that interest of Everton and others remains for Marvin Plattenhardt. I have mentioned others that may also be options.}

1.) 22 Jul 2018 14:58:25
Arent we in for Digne?

{Ed002's Note - Sure maybe, but Digne is very much a defensive left back rather than a wing back - and perhaps not really what Everton need.}

2.) 22 Jul 2018 15:35:25
Would be mice to have some defenders who can defend.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 15:32:33
Thanks ed. I thought playing a front 3 with only 2 CBs would lessen the need for a more attacking playerlike Plattenhardt. But i'm not that familiar with Digne to be honest and agree that we still need an outlet from our full backs. With a front 3, when the wider players tuck in you do need an outlet. Silva does like an attacking and expansive style aswell which points to a more forward thinking full back. Not disagreeing with you in any way ed just exploring my opinion, admittedly based on a lack of knowledge :) Has there been a player profile on Digne please ed?

4.) 22 Jul 2018 20:58:54
Thanks ed appreciate the info.

5.) 22 Jul 2018 22:48:26
Yeah I agree Ed he’s not he most confident person going forward from what I’ve seen. Looks panicked on the ball which is strange for a Barcelona player but if silva and brands want him let’s get behind him.



16 Jun 2016 16:46:47
If anyone fancies a laugh take a look at the emerging whispers on sly if we get half the players we are being rumored with we would have the best squad in the PL if not Europe. As you said though Ed its nice to be in the situation for a change.


1.) 16 Jun 2016 17:06:14
ano that today whisper had Lucas moura on it.



26 May 2016 13:35:59
Hypothetical one here if Zlatan goes to MU do you think Rooney would be surplus to requirements would we be his first port of call.


{Ed025's Note - i would doubt it sa, he will play one more season at utd then end his career in the MLS i suspect mate..

1.) 26 May 2016 18:30:48
Rooney definitely playing at Utd next season. May leave come Jan but he'll start August at Utd.



26 May 2016 13:22:45
Hypothetical one here if Zlatan goes to MU do you think Rooney would be surplus to requirements would we be his first port of call.


{Ed025's Note - it would come down to money i think sa and that would make it a non starter, my feeling is that he will play one more season with utd then end his career in the MLS mate..

1.) 26 May 2016 16:05:56
If we are looking to offer £200 million wages to Hart, ok paper talk, but I would not rule Everton out of signing Rooney as his wages could be met, call me a romantic but I have a gut feeling, Rooney will be coming back to Everton.



01 Mar 2016 10:37:06
Here's a hypothetical one for consideration. If we vote to leave the EU, Will we be in a better position than most clubs as we only have a few EU nationals in the squad? I am presuming that all Foreign players would need apply for Visa's to remain in the country.


{Ed025's Note - thats something i have not even thought about sa, but i cant see it being a problem for players who are already here, but maybe future signings may be different mate..

1.) 01 Mar 2016 11:28:28
I've posted the same question as the OP on a few occasions during the past year or so, but most fans don't seem to have any particular views on it.
I tend to agree with Ed025: foreign players who are well established in the Premier League shouldn't have a problem in being allowed to stay on, but future signings may well have to meet much more stringent conditions. Time will tell on this.
A more interesting situation could be if the UK leaves the EU being followed by Scotland going independent - where would that leave future Scottish signings by English clubs?
Also, what about foreign managers/ coaches coming into English football?

2.) 01 Mar 2016 13:39:35
I suppose it will come down to what happens with all EU nationals already in the UK. I can't see footballers being given special dispensation to remain.

As for Scotland going independent, then I presume they would be classed as EU nationals if they are allowed to join the EU that is (it would be really funny if they were rejected by the EU though) . I would imagine though any Scottish people that have been living in the remaining home union countries for over a certain time period may be given the option to become a UK national.

{Ed002's Note - It is not actually clear what would happen if the UK left the EU. There would certainly not be any overnight change but the eventual position would likely be a need for work permits and residence permits. In terms of existing EU citizens already working in the UK, there is no plan but I would think an amnesty would be the likely decision followed by a quota system of some type. A good question but no firm answer I am afraid.}

If you had the choice of the linked Chelsea players on loan who would you take?



1.) 09 Aug 2018 09:52:05
I'd like RLC but we don't really need him so it has to be Zouma. We can't neglect this shocking defence any longer. Will be a disaster of a season if we don't.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 10:00:22
I'd go for Zouma as we need CD strengthening as a priority. If we can do that from elsewhere then Batshuayi as we are suddenly looking good for Gomez in midfield.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 10:04:03
Buy Zouma
Loan RLC.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 13:20:14
Took the words out of my mouth Trueblue.



01 Aug 2018 11:15:07
If we get a new LB I wonder if MS would take a look at Baines in the holding midfield area if we couldn't get a new face in. Not sure if he has the full skill set required but would be interesting to see if he could fill the role of Schniederlin and rotate with Beni until MS gets the man he wants.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 14:19:30
Think we tried too many square pegs in round holes last season and look what happened.



25 Jan 2018 10:42:01
Is it just me or is everyone else total underwhelmed by the up and coming deadline day? This window just seems flat with the promise of nothing really exciting happening. Can't get anyone in without shipping out as we don't have the squad space and can't see any one else leaving not even on loan.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 11:03:06
I think (hope! ) that a couple more might leave, whether that's on loan or perm i'm not too sure, this would enable us to bring in a left back which is so desperately required i.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 11:12:35
can always drop from the Squad and replace with A. N. Other (s) . Schneiderlin and Martina are the immediate two that come to mind, add Williams to that and the Squad would perk up.

3.) 25 Jan 2018 11:57:19
I imagine there will be about a dozen leave on deadline day. Most probably, to West ham.

4.) 25 Jan 2018 12:12:42
Exactly ducksfltsouth. That's 3 that look like on their way out. Add to that Jags and Baines don't look like they have many more seasons ahead of them. Will they both be here nest season?

5.) 25 Jan 2018 12:25:13
Agree DFS but it will not happen under big Sam.



24 Nov 2017 11:41:11
Would be nice if Everton's Blue Friday sale could include a couple of players. Mind you you would need more than 50% off for most of them.




05 Oct 2017 09:50:40
Not Everton related, just wondering what would happen to Barcelona if Catalonia declare themselves independent from Spain and Spain reluctantly except the outcome. They would no longer be a Spanish team and therefore would have no right to play in the Spanish league. It would be interesting what UEFA would then do as they would not be associated to any currently recognised national football association so would the be able to play in Europe?


{Ed002's Note - Declaring themselves independent means practically nothing and the club will stay in the Spanish league - as will the others - Girona, Espanyol etc..}

1.) 05 Oct 2017 11:01:38
I think both the Spanish and Catalonians think its a little bit more than practically nothing Ed.

{Ed002's Note - The Spanish don't - they think it is illegal and has no standing. It would be like the Merseyside Council claiming independence.}

Some did the exact same thing last season with Koeman and look at the teams we had to play then in the first 6 games. Will Silva last past Christmas? Injuries will play no more bigger part than it did for Koeman. What will, is the fans ability to stay patient with the management and team until they gel. Silva's change in playing style may give him a little more leeway with some but as you can see some fans are not happy already. For me its fundamentally down to the argument of what type of football are we prepared to watch. Pragmatic football based around defensive solidity that gets results occasional wins mainly draws, but not pretty to watch or a more expansive attacking game that is high risk in the fact that we need to score more than concede. To me it looks like the same situation ManU are currently in the process of trying to figure out with Mourinho. It's said patience is a virtue and I can see why. Patience is what we need but whether Silva get enough, time will tell.

I wouldn't call his record poor considering he was young at the time he was in Italy and Switzerland. His last 2 seasons in the MLS have been much better though.

I don't think Jags will be back of the line. I think he will get more game time due to his PL experience. If he gets a decent rest between matches I can see him starting more than most expect.

To be fair to Tosun that was probably his worst performance since he arrived. He is usually pretty good at holding up the ball and bringing others into the game.

johny1989 If we had something like 10 first team players out today can you tell me who? As far as I can see we had pretty much most of the first team playing even if it was only badly.

Interesting reading ed001. I think Richarlison may be another who makes next years list if, he can perform consistently for a whole season that is.


{Ed001's Note - yes mate, at the start of last season he was excellent but then faded, so he has to ensure that this season he keeps up his performance level.}

For most people its the "Luck of the Irish" for Evertonians it seems to be the "Curse of the Irish".
