It's gone mental with reports Zaha is being negotiated.

Not sure how true this is and I don't think it's possible at all. Let's wait and see.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 12:19:49
Palace have been mentioned as having interest in Walcott too. Our forward options would be exceptional if this were true - fear it may just be lazy journalism.

{Ed002's Note - Walcott is not going to CP.}

2.) 05 Oct 2020 12:34:40
Interesting you're not saying "Zaha is not going to Everton" Ed.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 13:01:52
I can take him or leave him. I'm more interested in a GK option than Zaha.

Apart from that Walcott looks like he may go, bolasie is the one being talked about going to CP and besic to rangers with Kean already gone.

That's some good business if it happens. Can't think of anything more we could have done.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 13:12:31
I really don't see Zaha link being true to not this late in the window!

5.) 05 Oct 2020 13:38:06
Zaha will be with Palace for the rest of his career now unless they get relegated.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 13:57:47
I can't either and not fussed about him at all. A few are reporting we are in for romero from untied now. I'd be very happy with that one though.

{Ed025's Note - he would be my choice john..

7.) 05 Oct 2020 14:28:18
Think Bolasie and Besic would both look good in a Palace shirt ;0)

8.) 05 Oct 2020 14:32:23
I don't see how Saha gets in our starting eleven at the moment. He's a good player but I'd rather any money be spent on a quality GK to compete with JP and some loan CF to give DCL a rest every 5/ 6 games and come on as impact. On a similar note, any whispers on Carlo thoughts on Tosun as he's not had a sniff or mention but with MK going out on loan, maybe this will change? Don't think he's injured and he can certainly finish if supplied.

9.) 05 Oct 2020 14:45:40
Shows how far we’ve come if that’s true. Realistically, one of our front three will either have a knock or need resting most weeks - Zaha would get plenty of game time. Also, James R can play the no.10 with 2 holding midfielders so all 4 could play. He would strengthen the squad, no doubt there. If we can get rid of 4/ 5 squad players, it’s not impossible.

10.) 05 Oct 2020 14:56:21
I agree corner. Tosun is another one who may do a decent job now we have better cohesion up front. We need to give these players a chance with the added quality we've already added.

11.) 05 Oct 2020 15:16:55
Tosun got a bad injury last season while on loan at Palace. He’s still injured as far as I know.

12.) 05 Oct 2020 15:39:55
Tosun out until new year I think, torn ACL.

Spirit of the blues is number 1 in the iTunes chart! I am loving being a blue right now.

Remember when we were rubbish? Seems so long ago!


1.) 28 Sep 2020 17:01:40
Lampard has not improved his squad he bought a striker when they already have giroud abraham and batshaui he has mount and pulisic but then buys havertz and zyech so attack was not a priority its his defence and midflield that need reinforcing .

2.) 28 Sep 2020 17:39:54
Z cars now moving up 😂😂.

Is there anyone left on here who stills questions Big Dunc and credentials?


1.) 17 Dec 2019 19:13:04
How could you, the guy bleeds blue COYB.

2.) 17 Dec 2019 20:41:39
Bluejohn, He's dynamite mate, just exudes Everton FC and if you don't follow suit, start ducking pal! lol.

3.) 17 Dec 2019 21:26:44
True Blue mate.

4.) 18 Dec 2019 06:33:01
No one is doubting his passion for the club but I’m not convinced he’s managerial material yet. In both Chelsea and Man Utd games we had around 30% possession and were fortunate not to concede more than one. We are still shaky at the back and not setting the world on fire (or even Goodison on fire) up front.

He’s been at the club since 2014 and it would be strange to not attribute some of the issues of the last few seasons with him. Have the last two results been part of the ‘new manager’ effect? He is a step in the right direction compared to Silva but that’s no real accolade to be fair.

It’d be great to see if he can win a few more games but I’m not sold that he is the man for the top job yet.

5.) 18 Dec 2019 08:05:54
He has been in charge for little over a week and has changed a team with no confidence to a team that don't stop fighting for each other. Picked up 4 points along the way with only 30% possession. He can only work with what he has and at the moment there are a few crucial injury problems as well.

6.) 18 Dec 2019 08:45:06
I'd love nothing more than one day dunc become our manager, would be boss! however not yet, also its called new manager bounce when someone comes in and has an immediate affect 8/ 10 it happens as the players get a kick up the arse.

{Ed025's Note - very much so wb..

7.) 18 Dec 2019 14:24:36
I would rather give up possession and get results when needed. One of the issues with Silva and Martinez is that they wanted possession and control all the time. That's why teams would just get back and defend solidly. Sometimes, you have to accept that the other team will have more of the ball. Results over style is important.

However I'm not saying play the SA way. I'm just saying against the bigger teams, we may need to play that way, especially when we are struggling.

8.) 18 Dec 2019 16:30:27
:the guy bleeds blue: Don't we all that's not credentials?

9.) 18 Dec 2019 19:43:45
Although he’s only been manager for a week, he has been working with these players for years as a coach.

10.) 18 Dec 2019 21:49:29
The whole argument of new manager bounce falls flat when you look at Arsenal.

11.) 19 Dec 2019 09:52:49
Tiffa, Some just cannot accept that DF has more to him than just being an avid Evertonian mate.

12.) 19 Dec 2019 10:46:13
thats why i said 8/ 10 mate.

13.) 20 Dec 2019 15:06:01
"Although he’s only been manager for a week, he has been working with these players for years as a coach" And that's when we went downhill.

14.) 20 Dec 2019 18:41:21
Sadly we went downhill after a long period of stability under moyes who took us as far as he could, Martinez, koeman, big sam and silva took us backwards to throw blame at dunc is daft, the players responded to him and put a shift in for him, he will have gained a lot from his caretaker stint, but is not quite ready yet.

15.) 21 Dec 2019 19:56:02
Agreed. Dunc has steadied the ship, restored pride and may even have helped convince Ancelotti that we're not a hopeless case. He's probably learnt loads over the last few weeks which will help him whether he goes elsewhere to be a manager or stays at Goodison to help out.

We saw the limits of 4-4-2 today as well, we looked flat and started passing sideways and were unable to link with the forwards or get decent crosses in. A poor Arsenal were able to get between the lines.

I'd like to see Niasse come on as sub rather than Tosun as well.

16.) 22 Dec 2019 22:53:44
carlo 4 year deal, i'd be happy with dunc then, he seems level headed and still willing to learn.



05 Oct 2019 23:39:38
A few weeks again against Sheff utd I saw Silva's reign end. He made rash substitutions and tactical changes. Today just confirmed it.

Those players on the pitch today let the manager down yes but they are letting each other down much more. And ofcourse the fans but I'm looking at this from a professional level first.

Delph and Schnids are either lazy or incompetent. Neither of them moved away from the middle of the park today. They didn't take any chances to get forward and as Silva pointed out, were not brave enough to try and make things happen.

Iwobi was full of running but there were so many times Digne was slow to support him. On the right the chemistry between Seamus and Ricky is none existent.

Upfront DCL is desperate for his no10 to help him. He makes himself available but he's knowhere to be seen. Ricky and Iwobi go looking for him but he's never there. He so individual now it's like he's just playing on his own.

In defense, the intensity of earlier on this season has gone and we've regressed which in set pieces means we are an easy target again.

As much as I want this team to be successful we need a new manager. EVERY player let us down today. EVERY single one of them.

The next manager needs to motivate these players and give them a simple plan. I pray to god we don't make the same mistakes of the past in getting someone like Sam. It has to be a long term vision but I don't hold out any hope they'll be given the right support again and we will simply be in this position in about 12 months time.

Unfortunately, I'll be telling my grandkids about how the city used to have two clubs.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 07:56:31
They are letting us fans down most of all mate.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 12:12:34
They are GB but what should come first to the players should be to each other.

If they play for the manager and each other they become a team. They'll work together to improve. Football is a team sport and no individual can do the role of everyone in it.

They must at all times work for each other.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 20:23:01
Very true John mate good post.



12 Nov 2018 19:03:18
What a difference the right people make to a football club.

Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman where such a disaster but I wonder who was more culpable.

Was it Koeman with his negative tactics in his second season. In his first he played attacking and fluid fast football that saw us have one of our best periods in the second half of that season that we've had in the EPL era.

Or was it Walsh with his purchase of three no10's and not one player to come in and replace the departing Lukaku.

Looking at the players Walsh brought in and the massive increase in quality of what Brands has brought in, with clear input from Silva (Richarlson), and the difference to what the right people can make to a football club is clear to see.

I honestly trust these two with the future of this club and do so more than anyone brought in over the last few years.

Long may this continue.

20 Oct 2020 17:14:49
I am loving all this hate at the moment for us and our players. Would it be the same if we were 12th in the league? You bet your ass it wouldn't.

So why? Take a look at the league table.

I've got my feet up looking at the world of football go completely mad and lose all sense of intelligence.

I'll be honest though, I feel embarrassed by some of the reactions of the Liverpool supporters because it puts us all in a bad light for the whole of merseyside.

However, for me, it's a sign we are genuinely improving and that we are a team to be feared.


{Ed025's Note - its been way over the top john, death threats!! pathetic really mate..

1.) 20 Oct 2020 19:56:10
When Laporte, Gundogan and Sane all suffered serious injuries, City were mocked by the media and told to “deal with it” because they were champions. Van Dijk gets injured and there are calls for bans, restarts, silences and memorial

It’s nice the reds have finally moved on from complaining about Ramos though

Speaking of big red, they hyped up Gomez as the best English centre back of this generation and Matip as the best centre back in the league after Van Dijk and Laporte

So I think they will be fine.



18 Oct 2020 09:51:41
Yesterday was a good performance by Liverpool. Its always a difficult game against a team that is full of confidence and in all but name Champions Of England but Liverpool gave their best in trying to close the gap the Champions elect.

It'll be interesting to see if they will be able to hang on to the couple of half decent players they have but Thiago will be wondering why he swapped trophies at Munich for mid table mediocrity and constant disappointment at the wrong half of Merseyside.

As for the mighty Everton who have the Spirit of the Blues in bucket full amounts, the league title is all but secured with just 33 games left to go and surely just a formality.

Not even in 1st gear yesterday and clearly just teasing their less fortunate neighbours and their Norwegian supporters, Everton were determined to give their own supporters proper entertainment by allowing the opposition a goal start.

Everton though have real world class quality throughout. The magician James Rodriguez, The powerhouse Allan and the number one striker in world football, who is lauded and appreciated by some of the biggest names and teams in the world today, worshipped by his own and admired by all in DCL, Everton always had, at a time of their choosing, the ability, class and quality to bounce back.

However, unlike their noisy neighbours, Everton are not in the game to think selfishly of themselves and understand that the league consists of 19 other teams, and chose to give Liverpool some hope for the future and allow them to take a point. Something for those Norwegians on the flight back home to talk about. The day they got a point from the top team in English and world football.

For Everton, its nothing but glory and trophies to come and time to sit back and wait for honours to stack up. So crack open a nice bottle Scotch fill a glass and make a toast to the Mighty Blues!

Good luck to you lot too. Nice to see us both doing well.

4.) 18 Oct 2020 11:14:53
Also a Liverpool fan. Looking forward to reading this post for a good chuckle at the end of the season 😊

To be fair though, you guys are improving quite a bit and I ve been really impressed. I ll give you that. Top four would not surprise me at all for you guys but long way to go. I'm going to be honest and say I'm not worried about you guys in the title race this season but you are on the right path.

Top four this season and that could generate another big improvement. Season or 2 down the road who knows. Everton is definitely a club on the up. Power of a good manager.

5.) 18 Oct 2020 13:12:39
Davey funnily enough we are not worried about you in the title race i'm more concerned with Villa.

Of course Davey knock yourself out mate, however the flip side of that coin is you won't have the cajones to show your face if BlueJohn and the rest of us are poppin corks, do not fear I will personally put your name up on these boards,

7.) 18 Oct 2020 15:50:44
John you're right good to see both do well. I saw the table after the match and a top two of Everton and Liverpool looked good, woulda looked better Liverpool top and Everton second like lol. Jokes aside though Carlo has yous playing well, hope yous keep it going, would genuinely like to see yous do well, **** knows the fans deserve it. Best of luck this season.

8.) 18 Oct 2020 17:07:43
Bill and Davey, we are finally moving in the right direction. We are a few seasons and players away from challenging yourselves and Man City. But the other positions in the league are definitely up for grabs. I think we’re strong enough now to fight for 3rd-8th and I will be more than happy if we qualify for europe as it rewards our improvement. And if we were to finish in top4 then it’ll be almost as good as lifting a trophy. 🔵⚪️🔵⚪️.

9.) 18 Oct 2020 17:49:09
Thats what I think Joe Mc but more conservative 5th to 8th, disappointed any lower.

10.) 18 Oct 2020 18:05:15
I think if this league is played behind closed doors for the most part then anyone could win it.
I think once the European games kick in I can see some of those teams getting an absolute hammering as it seems pretty much everyone is having a go in games.

11.) 18 Oct 2020 18:39:36
Blue John, that is hands down the best post I have ever read on here. Brilliant stuff.

12.) 19 Oct 2020 12:21:34
I ll come on no bother blue 247. You might want reread my post though. I said you are on the right path to challenge sooner rather than later. Thought I was being complimentary.

It's a personal opinion of course but fair enough if you think you can do it this year. I don't think you guys are there. quite yet. Then again, I didn't think Leicester would win it. If we didn't dream football would have no point.



10 Oct 2020 10:13:24
Imagine what it must feel like now to be an Everton player. Over the last 5 or 6 years it must have been awful to put on the blues shirt and terrifying to walk out on out on the pitch wondering what reception they would get and how 1 mistake could cause the hostility to turn on their own.

I honestly think C.V. has been a reset button for our club and fans. there's now a much more appreciative tone coming for the supporters and aided with an injection of some class players and galvanised by a calm and measured manager with genuine pedigree, we see a club healed and reformed.

Long may it continue, lo g may the results continue, long may the goals keep flowing and long may the negative records turn into positive ones. Hopefully the next record to change is in just a weeks time time. That could be the catalyst for the biggest record to be cast to history!


1.) 10 Oct 2020 10:50:36
The 'reset button' had crossed my mind too BlueJohn, though the manager and current squad are a light years from what we had previously to me that is the catalyst especially the manager, however I am with you on the 'boo boys' and their trigger happy mentality regarding 'any' mistakes mate.

14 Sep 2020 20:54:26
Hi all. I haven't been on in a while in what has been a challenging year for me personally.

What a difference 8 weeks makes. A 3-1 home defeat to a relegated side at the end of July and we'd all be forgiven to have nothing but dread and low expectations at the new season.

However, Brands with the help of one of the truly great managers of all time, have bought exactly what was need., real quality and experience, and galvanised a squad that looked destined for more disappointment this season.

It's okay buying young kids and making a profit maybe a few years down the line but all that will get you is instability and inconsistency because that's what young players are. Players who have played at the top level, winning trophies understand that you have to play at a high performance almost all of the time.

Now this is one game and against a really poor spurs but what I did see is that other players in our squad like Ricky, DCL, Keane, Digne and Gomes, in fact all of those players on the pitch yesterday is that they don't look out of place playing with these high performance players. That, I am hoping, is the light switch for these players. They are good enough.

It's easy to say they played with passion and aggression but for me I didn't see any of that. I saw what we always seem to lack, composure. Composure in the big moments of the game. There was no panic and rash decisions being made. Instead there was always a purpose in every pass. The passing was forward always, and because we had mobility in the forward areas with 3, 4 or even 5 players at times avAilanle, there was always someone to hit. I counted at one point, when they had the ball, 7 players in their half chasing them down. In the days of Moyes and the subsequent managers since, we would never do that against quality opposition. And that we've got Carlo to thank for.

So a good start and I'm over the moon. But we'll have tougher test to come. For once though I'm not so scared or worried about them. instead, just like DCL said in his interview, I'm looking forward to them and can't wait to see us out on that pitch.

Anyway, nice to speak all and hopefully we're all a bit! ore positive than 6 months ago😁.


1.) 15 Sep 2020 00:04:22

No doubt they have a plan I assume but never the less I'd rather see the club try and make progress in a more sustainable way.

Thanks ED I try to stay away from the figures as you've provided enough on here in the past to make it clear none of us truly understands what the runnings of a football club is really like. Some here wouldn't even do well on football manager!

I think delph and Allan is too defensive but he has also been good and wouldn't argue.

I think Sig this season has been much better and hasn't put a bad performance in. Even yesterday when he came on, he looked so much more assured, more direct going forward. He couldn't be any worse than Gomes is at the moment.

I said this a couple of weeks ago but we need to judge these players again now we have real quality in the team and a different motivation.

I've seen it with the thinner lines and it looks slightly offside. However, VAR has to go, its so inconsistent. Jordan should have been sent off, Robertson too and it wasn't a penalty for United.

What astounds me is that they have all the time in the world and are looking at every angle and still get it wrong. Football isn't a tick box sport. The pace of a game, sometimes just the world of physics means things happen in a game. Slow is down and/ or take a snap shot you can make it look like anything you want.

Liverpool failed to win because Jordan stayed on and we were not given the opportunity to take a hold of the game with Robertson staying on. all because of VAR.

Gomes has been the worst outfield player on the pitch all season and Siggy should be playing instead of him. Sig has been excellent all season and much more direct and economical with the ball. whereas Gomes has been slow to react to situations, losing the ball constantly in dangerous areas and offering nothing going forward.

I like the lad but he is a weak link in that midfield and he either improves or he should give way to Sig.


{Ed025's Note - i agree on gomes john but is siggy really the answer?, very good on the ball but his work ethic not so good, i never thought i would utter these words but i would put delph in myself mate..

First of all it should be free to all season ticket holders for the home games.

For away games there should be something more reasonable. As much as I understand the price seems extortionate to go to the game you would be charged a lot more than 15 quid. These are also outside of the subscription that most pay £30 a month for the privilege.

These are games you would normally not go to or see unless you go to the actual match but a fairer idea would have been a top on your subscription of 15 for the month not per game.
