Regardless of all the crap in the newspapers about Everton making offers for players my prediction is that we will pay for one and get several on loan while of course moving out as many of the non-squad players as possible. Hopefully a few of the kids will step forward. Kenny will also be back, thought that he had a good game yesterday and scored a belter. Probably no good enough for the future but right now would be a good addition to the squad.

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen. Everton cannot have "several" players on loan.}


1.) 08 Jun 2020 17:12:21
Sorry ed002 my mistake, how many can they take on loan?

{Ed002's Note - Premier League clubs may register no more than four loan players over a season and no more than two at any one time and a maximum of one from any other club.}


2.) 08 Jun 2020 17:23:24
Sorry ed002 I should be more careful with my words, I really meant a couple (two) .

{Ed002's Note - You mean a brace.}

New to the site and just looking at Ed’s point about Everton being in serious trouble ( or words to that effect) alongside the likes of Barca, Marseille, Aston Villa, Sheff Wednesday.
But I disagree about Everton, serious trouble says we need to sell Richarlison and Digne and bring in frees and loans.
We have a lot of money behind us, just held back by ffp at the moment and obviously C.V. now hasn’t helped. But Ancelotti hasn’t joined a team on the brink. And Moshiri is paying him and his team a 100m in salaries over the next 4.5yrs

I’ve heard of a few financial football experts and not Everton related. But have said we have big money behind us. What about spurs, furloughing staff getting a 175mil loan, Arsenal also apparently have no money, but Everton are on the verge of going broke.

If we are in trouble, then I fully expect the ground to put on hold for a few years. Let’s see. But I expect Everton to spend this summer, might not be a fortune but they will.

{Ed002's Note - Clearly you don’t grasp the issues that Everton has nor the FFP regulations. I have not said Everton are going broke and perhaps you don’t understand the issues at Spurs needing to pay for a new stadium not Arsenal with issues caused last season. The entire post is from a position of complete ignorance. Everton have been spending beyond their means - as I have repeatedly explained.}

Sorry to hear about Koeman, wish him a speedy recovery.

I think its crazy how so many footballers have heart problems. you'd think they were near superhuman compared to us mere mortals. wish him a speedy recovery.


2.) 07 May 2020 14:46:15
It does seem strange but underlying heart issues can effect the fittest of people, I’m into cycling and few months ago Team Ineos sporting director died suddenly of heart attack he was 40 and ex pro who was extremely fit and healthy, it’s very worrying for rest of his who don’t lead a healthy lifestyle like athletes.


3.) 08 May 2020 08:09:34
It is no mystery at all. As in all very active occupations, Sport (particularly in the pro ranks) , Military, Fire Service etc! Once those retire or cease, then it takes a great deal of physical and in particular mental fortitude to keep the body at such a high fitness level or near as damn it. In not doing so the body begins to ease back. Witness the amount of ex Military in dire straits. I and many many others who had such professions, have been able to adjust. We are the lucky one's.

Improvement has been pretty rapid under Brandt and Silva. A better recruitment policy, targeting younger players with potential and mainly focusing on improving the balance of the squad. The playing style has improved markedly, away from the dull style of last years managers to a attacking style easy on the eye. Players seem to better understand their role in the team and appear to be enthusiastic and committed to the Silva style of play.

We also now have an owner who is capable of moving us forward and that is not a criticism of Bill who did his best for us over many difficult years.
Some things however never seem to change. I am now 78 and went to my first game at 6 years of age. Of course we have had golden periods, too long ago unfortunately, but I would be a rich man if I had received a pound for every time it has been said that we would be a great team but for the lack of one or two players. Right now we need a top centre forward who can score goals and probably a right-winger who can also score.

It has also been said many times that if we could convert some of our draws into wins we would be more often in the top six. Well as of today we have five draws out of fifteen games, some against teams that we should have beaten especially in home games.

And then we come to playing at Anfield. How many times do that lot win at the last moment? It is so inevitable I can't stand to watch the end of the game.
So many things to rejoice about as the Holliday season approaches. Still work for Brands and Silva to do and unlike previous administrations, I have every confidence that they will correct the deficiencies as soon as practical and possible.
So for all fellow Blues and Eds I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year with thanks to all the Eds who do a great job on this site.

I have to laugh at some of the Liverpool comments regarding the VAR decision of offside for the Henderson "goal". Once the decision is made to use VAR technology (which personally I don't like) the decision of wether a player is off-side or not is straight forward. Lines are drawn by the computer and if the attacker is even a centimeter off-side it is off-side, period. The argument that some margin should be allowed is ridiculous, who makes the decision, one centimeter off-side is OK, or maybe 5 centimeters? Of course the technology might be flawed which I doubt apart from when it is applied to our neighbors evidently!

It's a funny old game. Leicester cream City and then lose to West Ham 3-0 at home. Liverpool have to win by three clear goals to go above us. So hopefully we will be at the top of the table for two weeks at least. A long time since we could say that.

1.) 04 Oct 2020 17:20:34
Add to that what Spurs have done since we played them. Not looking to shabby that result now.


2.) 04 Oct 2020 17:59:52
Villa are yet to concede a goal this season in the league, big test today though.

Nice message from the "Professor' to the supporters. We have a fantastic manager.

We do that mate excellent.

What a fantastic performance by the whole starting eleven today. They played with passion, played excellent team football with no weak links, rather than eleven individuals who looked as if they had not practiced together like some of the games last year.
We've all waited a long time for this type of performance. The three new players all played excellent games and fitted into the team seamlessly. We dominated the game for long periods and well deserved the win. Hopefully the fringe players will learn from this type of performance and improve their game since injuries will occur and we need the likes of Davies, Siggy, Walcott, Bernard, Keen and Iwobi to improve their game (if they are still with us) .

{Ed0666's Note - I’m happy you guys are happy. Seriously it’s been a long time since you guys have had something to cheer about. I hope you have a good season Mike.


1.) 14 Sep 2020 05:04:36
I am not getting over excited about one glass of champagne, but it was great to watch an Everton side actually compete for 90 minutes of a game. I can't remember the last time! ?

{Ed0666's Note - In the 1980’s


2.) 14 Sep 2020 07:24:26
ha ha not far off with the 80s i would say under Joe Royal was as close as we had to it we could match most sides and had really good attacking players.


3.) 14 Sep 2020 08:35:22
Having watched it back again, the one that stood out, without standing out was our No6. A replacement (upgrade) on gueye, organisation, leadership, skill, tenacity and distribution. If that turns out to be consistent you have to wonder why he was allowed to leave.


4.) 14 Sep 2020 09:11:59
Doucoure impressed me also. Sticking his leg out from behind players to win the ball in front of them. Ran and ran for 90 mins. Gomes looks like a player who hasn't the task of being all of the midfield 4. He didn't have to worry bout what was going on behind him and could play his own game. Only one game and yes spurs were poor but we made them look poor. Could be an exciting season for us. We're definitely going to ruffle some feathers this season.

Anyone living in the USA know if the Spurs game is being shown on TV? I have Directv and can't see it listed. I can also get Futbo and NBC Sports Gold and it is about the only game not listed.
I see that it is on Peacock Premium which I don't have, anyone have any idea about this service?

1.) 10 Sep 2020 09:24:09
Not sure if I'm allowed to post this but I use iptv bud you get every game that way (delete if not allowed ed)

{Ed025's Note - its fine by me BMD, i do the same mate..


2.) 10 Sep 2020 11:08:41
There's a lot of us doing it.


3.) 10 Sep 2020 11:20:01
Is this a website?

{Ed025's Note - no sobs..via a dodgy box in my case mate..


4.) 10 Sep 2020 12:08:38
Don't know if I'm allowed to post this but search wow sports apk on google.


5.) 10 Sep 2020 12:11:39
Sorry its changed its name its now vola sports apk.


6.) 10 Sep 2020 12:16:43
Best way is via a firestick I actually do it myself now due to being let down quite a few times started off with just for the fambo then I helped a few people out on a support group and it just went off with everyone wanting me to do it 😂😂.


7.) 10 Sep 2020 12:17:31
Follow Robs advice if he's used them and happy with them then that's the best feedback you can ask for.


8.) 10 Sep 2020 12:52:42
Thanks for the advice,
Mike.


9.) 10 Sep 2020 12:55:29
I have Peacock Premium and its replaced NBC Gold for those games not covered on NBC Sports. Its about the same price as Gold. Haven’t used it yet, primarily because I only bought it for the EPL season. Tried the other sites mentioned above and had spotty success with them. FYI.


10.) 10 Sep 2020 13:39:12
not sure if i can post this but i use vipbox. live by laptop streams are good never crashes either.


11.) 10 Sep 2020 15:17:10
Buy yourself a firecube or firestick. Install Kodi, incredibly easy with plenty of step-by-step guides on t'internet. Install an addon called The Crew. Very easy to do with guides online. Under the IPTV section you'll find a tonne of sports channels from around the world. Guaranteed to find the channel you're looking for.

I would play Holgate in midfield until we get someone better. Sigurdsson should be nowhere near the first eleven. Leave Richarlison on the left wing, Gordon on the right and give Keane a chance with DCL in the middle. Sorted and they pay me nothing.

I don't think that Everton will be that stupid, if they do sign him it is just panic recruitment which I was hoping would be behind us. Let Brands start building for the future which he presumably was recruited to do.

Well actually Spurs away. So four points from two games against the "big six" teams.

He may well do meggsey but that does not make it right. The big six is a myth, what happens if an Everton or Leicester or Villa win the league over the next three years? Will they be included in the big six (five) ? The only people who can fight so this will not happen are the fans who either pay to attend the game or pay to watch the games on TV and I really can't see that they will be successful. Maybe they can at least delay the inevitable. I believe this super league will happen but it has to be organized so other teams have a mechanism to be included. This proposal that the big 6 (5) are included for (I read) 10 years is ridiculous and will kill off domestic football and not only in the UK.

That's the difference between a world class coach and the rest blue potato. I have been very impressed with DCL who speaks very well in interviews and comes across as a very intelligent individual. He is obviously smart enough to learn from the best, will only get better with experience and we are lucky to have him.

Well Liverpool played a team yesterday that just avoided relegation last season and look what happened. Yes we will lose at some stage but so will everyone else. I would say that we are well positioned for a top six place this season.
