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.

{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.}

Just been reading the European Coefficient explanation. There is a good possibility that England may lose the fourth CL spot to Italy if the English teams perform as last season. Once it's gone it would take a remarkable change around for England to get the place back. It looks to me that the PL is being extremely shortsighted in the way PL clubs in Europa are treated.

We all know that CL qualifiers get a much bigger financial gain than EL but as the two tournaments are linked it would make sense for PL to help EL qualified teams as much as possible.

As most agree that being in the EL effects premier league form, some teams are at a distinct disadvantage being in the competition. As we have very little chance of a top 4 place and the gap is growing between the haves and have not's, I do think that it would be quite ironic if we lost a CL place due to the so called top 4 manipulating the transfer markets to their own ends.


1.) 29 Sep 2015 18:35:57
good points well made, mate.

2.) 30 Sep 2015 13:18:36
Offer more prize money for the el and stop 3rd placed teams from the cl from entering and it could be a completion worth taking serious.

{Ed007's Note - I'm interested in why people think playing in the EL puts teams at a disadvantage in the league?}

3.) 01 Oct 2015 10:02:01
Ed IMO the EL takes a significant toll on the players mentally and physically for teams with larger squads this is not such an issue but for those with smaller squads having to manager rest periods and injuries seems to affect PL form. I don't know why but stats seem to support this. You would expect the CL to have a similar effect but the travelling is not as much as the CL consists mainly of the major teams in Spain Germany Italy England France and Holland so although there will be countries that will be a fair distance you will be less likely to have more than one in a group.

{Ed007's Note - See that's what I can't understand, CL teams get the same amount of days between matches as EL teams, is it because it's not worth millions of £s that English teams treat the competition with such nonchalance? If the money was nearer CL levels would teams take it more seriously?
If you beat Liverpool on Sunday and their fans said it was because of their EL hangover would you accept that and say they're probably right?}

4.) 01 Oct 2015 17:08:43
CL teams usually have bigger squads so can rotate players more and still get results especially during the league and FA cups fixture periods. Agreed there is the same amount of days rest but usually the travel time is not as long for a CL fixture.I do think it is about the money PL money is greater than EL money so staying as high as you can in the PL is more beneficial.

And yes if we win on Saturday the EL hangover excuse may come out and yes I would accept that and say they are probably right. However,if they think the EL group match is more important than the derby that's up to them because if we win!!

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.}



06 Jun 2017 10:09:42
It will be interesting to see how quickly the club makes a statement on the future of Rom now he has let the cat out of the bag by telling us he knows exactly what his future holds allegedly)


1.) 06 Jun 2017 11:35:27
Funny how he knows exactly were he will be playing next season yet unless it is at Everton he can't be so certain as any club wishing to buy him has to do just that and pay the asking price. He doesn't decide until that price is agreed.

{Ed025's Note - your right gray..



13 Sep 2016 10:54:55
Good result last night but what is clearly evident is how good RK is at managing team tactics during matches. That 1st half was not good I actually thought both Ross and Kev were shocking. I don't think Kev plays well down the left I always preferred him on the right, that's where he played really well for DM when out wide. Having said that RK certainly knows his players as once he was put in behind Rom his game picked up really well. I also love RKs honesty about our performances in post match interviews. Just not good enough in the 1st half and better in the second but still room for improvement. Rom also gave a good interview with Bainesy its all about the team now. The future is bright. COYB.


1.) 13 Sep 2016 11:46:26
I think Rom gave his most truthful interview ever last night and he came across as genuine to me. He didn't gloat about his first hat trick for us instead he actually criticised his first half performance saying he just was not good enough. I would go as far as saying he did that for 2 reasons, 1) he is learning that he has to work hard for us and 2) as a mark of respect to RK.

2.) 13 Sep 2016 20:18:28
It's his second actually young boys away in a 4-1 win.

He is one of the few players we could actually sell for a reasonable amount.

The blues could sell up to 12 players and still have too many players for the 1st team squad. We would need to offload 15-20 players if we wanted to bring in 3-5 quality replacements and have the size of 1st team squad as intimated by Brands in his press conference.

I'm with you on that Pauly, unless the management team have already identified specific target areas that they want to address then i would not be too distraught if we did not sign any new players.

SNN did have a running commentary on the goals but its doubtful that they would have had any pictures as they would have to wait until they got the footage from EFC which probably won't be until xmas as the club are charging to watch the matches.

WOOD1425 I think you need to take what the media are saying about Lookman with a pinch of salt. As mentioned he has returned to pre-season and I expect he will be happy if the management consider him worthy of a place in the team. If not like most he will consider his options. Whether he is under contract is pretty irrelevant as it would make more sense to sell him if he is not required as we would get a substantial return on our investment.
