Looks like James is off then. does anyone care?


1.) 02 Jul 2021 13:38:54
He was a good player, really good signing, but injuries and lack of pace and energy mean he won’t be missed.

2.) 02 Jul 2021 16:08:47
I’ve read that it’s far from done as at the moment his wage demands are way to high.

3.) 02 Jul 2021 16:54:33
He needs to be in a team that can carry a player like that and we are not at that level so it's best he moves on.

4.) 02 Jul 2021 21:59:27
Is he so good that we pay roughly 250k per game? No way Rafa!

5.) 02 Jul 2021 22:33:53
If he leaves, and we also get a buyer for Bernard, I would happily swap places for an incoming Coutinho.

{Ed025's Note - i dont bignev, the last thing we need right now is another show pony mate..

6.) 02 Jul 2021 23:01:01
So swap out James for Coutinho. Who is just as injury prone but not as good, but will be on much higher wages.

{Ed0666's Note - James better than Couts. ‘The drugs don’t work they just make it worse’

7.) 02 Jul 2021 23:40:08
I get he played for Liverpool the reds have a love in with every ex player (rather like us) like Coady better than Mina, Kent better than Richarlison, Solanke better than DCL etc

But yeah, James is better than Coutinho, he manages to run games by himself in a crap team, Coutinho has yet to do that.

{Ed0666's Note - run a game maybe. Coutinho is a stud when he turns it on. You’ll be blessed to have him mate.

8.) 02 Jul 2021 23:45:27
Just read James is going to quit with Rafa in place. What does that mean? How can he quit again after he already quit in the spring?

{Ed0666's Note - maybe he has Ancelotti-itis?

9.) 03 Jul 2021 07:31:53
A paper in Columbia ran a story basically telling James now is the time to stay at Everton and not run because he doesn't get the kiddy glove treatment from a manager.



25 Jun 2021 23:51:34
I think the prolonged delay in making the appointment is a ploy. seeing more and more people saying that they’ve had enough now and just want them to get it sorted so we can prepare for the season.
Seems the anger has subsided and everyone has accepted the inevitable.
I suppose we do what we normally do and get behind the club - even though I was (am) dead against Rafa.


1.) 26 Jun 2021 00:55:34
I don't think its a ploy at all. Not everyone is against rafa being manager. I think its more to do with getting the best manager we can for the club right now. My opinion is that rafa is the right manager for us right now. There are stubborn people who refuse to take the blue tinted glasses off and would rather cut off their nose to bite their face but each to their own.

2.) 26 Jun 2021 01:37:13
No people haven’t just “accepted it”, plenty of people still outraged by it and will continue to be.

3.) 26 Jun 2021 01:54:39
And that just shows what kind of fans we have. He has not had a game yet some simple minded fans right him off. did lfc fans spit there dummy out like some of our so called fans when nick barmby left us for them no or did we with beardsley . Get a grip and look at the bigger picture. Its pathetic how so called fans would rather us go for how or dyche over rafa. Take your head for a whobble and get a grip. If you want one over pool bow about support him and when he wins US trophies rub it their face. Their so called massiah wanta to manage US.

4.) 26 Jun 2021 02:06:06
I think most of them people u speak about are pool fans, every one i speak to are happy to have rafa.

5.) 26 Jun 2021 05:18:50
And nearly every one I speak to outside of this site doesn’t want him, it’s all dependent on who you speak to

People are allowed to not want him

Some people don’t want him simply because they think he’s finished as a top manager, in fact, every person I’ve spoken to who doesn’t want him, have said they don’t think he’ll be a good appointment, it has very little to nothing to do with him being an ex red.

{Ed0666's Note - Newcastle fans would walk over cracked glass to have him back. I would say that both clubs are similar in scenario as in their sleeping giants and need a experienced coach to give them a push to the next level. I think Rafa would be an excellent choice to do this. The difference is the geordies are realistic and don’t have ideas of grandiose

6.) 26 Jun 2021 06:03:15
To suggest that the expectations of Evertonians and Geordies should be similar, is baffling, one owner spends, the other doesn’t, one has had a successful history, the other hasn’t, one has been flirting with Europe for years, the other hasn’t. We don’t expect the league or the champions league, we just want a team that tries hard and competes for Europe regularly, that’s it, we just want to be exactly like Leicester are, maybe a not that good, but there or there abouts in terms of how they are run.

Newcastle fans are pretty happy with 15th every season so long as their team puts a shift in. I can’t fault them for that, they aren’t a big club, or a sleeping giant. Just an okay club with a great fanbase.

7.) 26 Jun 2021 06:12:38
Worth noting on Rafa, I’m not Rafa in or out or whatever. I’ve come to terms with it, I’ll get behind the man. One of the worst things when Martinez was in charge was Liverpool fans singing his name when they smashed us 4-0 (again) . But there’s Liverpool and Newcastle fans saying “why wouldn’t you want Rafa? He’s great”, that speaks volumes and does give me a little bit of hope that it might work out. He’s going uphill in ice skates, but here’s hoping for the best. Duncan Ferguson made a good point in an interview (about Allardyce) when he said “someone trying their best to get Everton results and being booed off the pitch, that’s not Everton”. I hope people take a lesson from that, booing Rafa on day one or during games won’t do us any favours. Neither will personal insults on banners. If you don’t like his appointment and want to protest against the board, fine, there’s ways to go about that. But actively wanting the team to suffer (in some cases) just so he gets sacked quicker will only damage us more long term.

{Ed025's Note - i agree swan mate..

8.) 26 Jun 2021 08:14:33
baffles me when people try to compare Newcastle to Everton as Swan pointed out they are not a big club and have never been one they are a one city club with a decent fanbase but they are not a sleeping giant and are nothing more than a yo yo club and you say they don't have ideas of grandiose have you actually spoken to Newcastle fans they genuinely believe they are massive and should be challenging for the champions league while comparing themselves to Liverpool fans for atmosphere because they believe everything sky sports say and we all know sky like to make out anfield is the only ground with an atmosphere they are a laughable fanbase who scream they can't sell the away end at Goodison out because the game was played on a tues night their fans are a myth just like our neighbours.

9.) 26 Jun 2021 08:35:56
Swan 117 wind your neck in. Newcastle have actually played in the group stage of the CL Everton haven't.

10.) 26 Jun 2021 08:52:22
Brankwymoordock Liverpool are a bigger club than Everton and that's a FACT Another FACT is Newcastle have actually played in the group stages of the CL and Everton haven't.

11.) 26 Jun 2021 10:27:40
Rudder, wind your neck in 😂😂😂 funny you mate, he's a swan 😎 but his opinions actually mostly make sense.

12.) 26 Jun 2021 12:09:28
Rudder, steer yourself back to the lfc page mate, you are adding absolutely zero to the conversation and nobody really cares what you think of Everton or Newcastle. I mean, getting to the group stage of the champions league makes Newcastle a big club? Crazy talk.

13.) 26 Jun 2021 17:27:44
Bluepotato I was about to ask the same question reg Newcastle and Rudder I'm guessing you can't read as would you like to point where I said Liverpool are not a big club is this one of those kopite traits where you make something up and believe it to be gospel.

14.) 26 Jun 2021 18:10:59
Everton haven't been a big club in over a quarter of a century. If I was Rafa I wouldn't touch Everton with a barge pole.

15.) 28 Jun 2021 02:48:53
And before Alex Fergerson came along Manchester United had not won the league in 25 years, things change, afder all, there is a club quite close by that until resently not won there own championship in 30 years, but still insisted they we a big club, so we will build for the future, rather than try and live on past glory, but then the delusional cannot be helped.

16.) 28 Jun 2021 11:35:04
I'm not thrilled with Rafa but I'll give him my support if he is coming in. My not liking the choice has less to do with his red history and more to do with things like being a very defensive coach who hasn't stayed anywhere long since Liverpool when we need someone to get the fans behind an exciting longterm project.
but hopefully he wins us a trophy and the haters will be so surprised they'll love him.



17 Jun 2021 22:42:40
If the rumours are true then shame on you EFC.
Benitez was deemed passed his best years ago by that lot, did nothing at Newcastle but now considered the perfect choice to lead us into our new stadium and bright new era?

What a joke, an absolute disgusting embarrassing joke!
Brands will be gone next and we will be led once again by a mercenary who cares nothing for our small club!

Where’s the “fresh” exciting new coaching talent?
This is no more a positive appointment than Fat Sam!

Yet again we are a laughing stock thanks to the pathetic inept management of our club. was always told be careful what you wish for. I know understand why.
Duncan Ferguson is a legend but if he remains part of the fat waiter’s set up then we know why the Nuno appointment fell through.
Nuno, Potter, Martinez. anyone but him!
Cannot and will not support him.
All the above is only applicable if the rumours are true of course!


1.) 18 Jun 2021 08:49:09
Benitez did nothing at Newcastle! = Brought them up from Championship and made the most of a bad job (the owner) wuth little to no resources. Chelsea finished 3rd won Europa League. Liverpool won Champions League. The only problem is as now being reported is his difficulty working with DoF. 3rd/ 4th meeting today so perhaps that may be ironed out. If hired, what he will do is create a period of stability. What us fickle fans should do is give our heads a wobble.

2.) 18 Jun 2021 08:54:51
Why get so upset about something that hasn't happened?

I fully understand that for some this would be a disaster of a choice. But why is everyone so insistent on believing everything is as the papers tell us, its like we all want to be pissed off about something.

3.) 18 Jun 2021 09:19:49
Chelsea third and Europa? Have a chat with Chelsea supporters see what they think about that.

4.) 18 Jun 2021 14:53:50
reds here . Your not Chelsea they had won plenty before Rafa arrived . What you need it stability and I think he will bring that. By the way I am 47 and want the days back the the mighty red and the neighbours across the park fought for the league. Nuno would be good but heard he want rid of big Dunc so looks like a no go .

5.) 18 Jun 2021 22:07:42
At least give the man a chance. Stability sounds good to me, in fact, just what we need.

Have to say, with the lack of incomings today and with what we have shipped out, we are incredibly low on numbers and I cannot see how we can compete across all competitions when we have already had TWO goalkeepers on the bench for a league game?
Bernard, Kean, King, Nkoukou, all gone with Siggurdsson unlikely to play again and James not fancied or “up for it”…Richarlison seems to have had his head turned but hopefully he will repay the loyalty with a good attitude for the rest of the season…really hope something happens in the next 2.5 hours but hope is fading fast!


1.) 31 Aug 2021 20:32:52
But we are adhering to ffp rules so not all bad. 😭😭.

{Ed025's Note - we have spent less than duncan goodhew spent on haircuts..

2.) 31 Aug 2021 20:50:29
Even Burnley have signed players and they hardly ever do that!

3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:50:15
Love it Ed25 though showing your with that reference.



30 Aug 2021 20:32:25
If you look at our bench on Saturday we are dangerously thin of quality players across the squad and if we do lose James, Kean, Nkoukou and don’t replace then we will be living dangerously and set for some tough times I fear.

Started the season better than anyone could have hoped for but unless we get some players in tomorrow it could all be for nothing.

Have huge faith in Benitez after being less than enamoured about his appointment as he has made some big decisions that so far appear to have worked…just hope that Brands can now do his job and give him the tools to do the job!




07 Aug 2021 17:41:02
We have our most expensive player suspended due to ongoing investigations into potential criminal matters, our most skilful and creative player by a country mile being told he’s not wanted, our leading goal scorer apparently is injured and our second on the other side of the world.
We have a section of the fans shouting abuse at our manager who hasn’t even started a competitive game yet, and we have Iwobi and Delph involved today. really really bad time to be a blue😞.


{Ed014's Note - I was thinking it wasn’t THAT bad then you mentioned Iwobi. 😂

1.) 07 Aug 2021 18:14:01
Never a bad time to be a Blue mate, let’s try and all get behind the Team this season, COYB.

2.) 07 Aug 2021 19:00:45
i think that it is totally disgusting the idiots singing abuse at Rafa give the guy a chance and shut up.

{Ed025's Note - i totally agree alan, they are an embarrassment mate..

3.) 07 Aug 2021 19:58:27
Like the racists abusing players after games, hate that these **** reflect on rest of us.
We haven’t even kicked a ball yet, the only signing Benitez paid for (practically nowt in today’s market) looked very fast and skilful and a great buy.
The MORONS chanting actually want Benitez to fail! WTF he is our manager (like it or lump it) if he fails we do!
COYB! We r meant to be SUPPORTERS!

4.) 07 Aug 2021 21:40:19
Hi pighead, some would say that we are meant to be FAN’s (FANATICS) - there can be a huge difference between supporting something and being fanatical about it. As we can see from those fans / supporters that where stood there with me today who quite simply don’t want Rafa at the club and are waiting for him to fail. - Thing is it won’t be him failing (if we do) in my eyes it will be our horrendous recruitment over the past 10 years.

5.) 07 Aug 2021 22:59:40
But why don’t u want him?
STOOD watching Peter Beardsley (ex red) in a declining average team was my only match highlight week after week plus I am lucky enough to be of an age when as a teenage season ticket holder I saw Sheedy (another ex red) be pivotal in us winning league and an European Cup!
Rafa hasn’t yet managed one proper game yet u seem proud to chant against him when he’s now a BLUE?
Please help me understand your view?

6.) 08 Aug 2021 09:41:28
Oh no pighead …. I am pretty happy with Rafa myself. I actually wanted him when we got Kornan, what I am trying to say is that some of the fans yesterday I know from most of our away games, they spend hard end money going to games and the family next to me had x2 grown up kids that clearly again had been brought up as Evertonians over the years, kits every year … season tickets every year etc. Now it was hard for me to read these same people being called morons due to their opinion. Some would say we are all morons for supporting a team that for 20 years or more has at best given us glimpses of hope. It’s the hope that kills you and as we know we do not chose we are chosen!



30 Jul 2021 21:16:26
At times last season we were impressive and only faded due to fitness and tactical issues which was all CA. we also had major injury and attitude issues which again I believe were down to CA
We have the base of a good team and with a decent coaching team we need only a few dedicated additions in the right places.
Ridding the squad of some of the free loading dross with poor attitudes will improve the team/ squad immediately.
I think we need to remain grounded and lower our expectations on transfers, after all we have many players that we haven’t seen “play” yet that have been with us for some time and may actually turn out to be valuable.
This transfer window more than any other in recent times has to be more about who leaves rather than who comes in.
Can’t wait for the season to start and if we line up without Delph, Holgate, Iwobi, Delph, Gomes, Delph, Siggurdsson, Delph, Tosun and Delph then I will be a happier blue!
Oh and Delph needs to go too.


1.) 30 Jul 2021 23:55:44
I agree with most of what you've said BA, although I'd be inclined to give Holgate another season. Last season he had a bit of Stones about him (thinking he's better than he is) but the season before he was probably our best centre back.

You seem a bit undecided about Delph though.

2.) 01 Aug 2021 08:00:25
Fair enough analysis but how you have omitted Delph from the list of those needing to go is beyond me.

{Ed0666's Note - players that aren’t vaccinated cannot be transferred per premier league rules. 😂



23 Jul 2021 11:38:19
I have to say. I was 100% against Rafa but his couple of weeks has been productive and with a huge helping hand from Brands has started to get rid of the absolute dross the previous managers inflicted on the club and more importantly the outrageous salaries.

He has walked into an absolute mess with the suspension of a first teamer, Delph putting more effort into attacking the club than he has across his entire Everton “playing career”, Tosun insisting on his final years contract in full in order to leave the club for NOTHING!
His hands are slightly tied with regards to spending and his pre-season tournament is now a farce.

If anyone wants to vent any anger or frustration at anyone then direct it at Martinez, Koeman, Allerdyce and the biggest person of all, Ancellotti. not forgetting Moshiri and his crooked advisors.
Give Benitez a chance and so Gray and Townsend. they are crucial to the “fresh start” we so desperately need!


1.) 23 Jul 2021 14:14:09
Time will tell if he has done a good job or not.
I think the players we're talking about would have been leaving regardless of who the manager was. Bernard, Bolasie, Besic, Walcott alone must have been on 400k+ so it's good business from whoever is securing these moves.
Why would Tosun tear up a year's contract? I we forget that it's a job and that these guys have families.
Benitez will get a fair crack from me - but if the signings flop and we're bottom half after a dozen games, he'll have to face the music like everyone else.

2.) 23 Jul 2021 15:24:08
Tosun isn't being asked to tear up a year's contract though is he JB. He has the opportunity to go and do his job in his home country for a bit less money. If we're allowing him to go for free, but he is only prepared to leave if he gets paid in full for his Everton contract AS WELL AS also getting paid by a new club for the same period of time, then it is very clear that he is interested only in money and not in playing football.

You concern for his family is touching though - hopefully the 9 million pounds or so we have paid him over the last 3 years will be enough for him to put some food on the table.

{Ed025's Note - love it davey..

3.) 23 Jul 2021 17:26:00
Everton offered Tosun the contract, why should he leave and be worse off . These players have no loyalty to our club they are just employees . Surely a compromise is negotiable where we could supplement his salary as United did and in turn we did over Rooney .

4.) 23 Jul 2021 18:09:45
He is within his rights to stay and be paid, you are correct. So he should stay. Playing clearly does not matter to him. Everton should not play the vast majority of his wages to go and play football somewhere else.
Finally we have a manager that looks as though he wants to operate within a budget and bring players to the club for reasons other than a massive paycheck.
Any player is entitled to ride out a contract. But it is a clear indication of the character, desire and ambition of the individual. If the man's sole interest is his wealth that's absolutely fine, but it's further evidence of how poor our recruitment was in the recent past that we can't identify those sorts of people before signing them (in addition it seems to not being able to identify players that can't get anywhere close to cutting the mustard in the prem) .

5.) 23 Jul 2021 18:15:26
Doesn’t help that he’s been awful. Ok for Rooney - he broke Utd goal scoring record so doing a good turn not so bad.
I have no idea what I’d do in this situation- like to think I’d sign for free and move on but this is his last year on good money - he will be finished in a year or two given his injuries
Sandro, Naisse, Klasson, Williams, Iwobi, Walcott, Delph, Bolassi, Bernard (we don’t appear capable of learning lessons - maybe recent transfers suggest differently but let’s see what we pay next big signing in wages / length of contract)

6.) 23 Jul 2021 18:47:03
Tosun is a modern footballer represented by an agent. Agents will not want their players losing money because they might lose too but more importantly it could be construed that the agent is weak. The agent will aim to ensure his client receives the best deal whether or not the player is overjoyed with the circumstances. I’m sure he has been told he’s entitled to his pay and whilst he’s not carrying skills in abundance he’s tried when he has played.

7.) 23 Jul 2021 19:02:17
Davey, relax mate. It’s a lovely day.
I’d play for free, but it’s Tosun’s job.
He wasn’t a die hard fan when we signed him.
His agent, not him by the way, will be advising him to get the best exit deal possible, that’s what he’s paid for.
It says nothing at all about Tosun’s character - it’s just the reality of football, wages, contracts etc. He’s done nothing wrong - he talks about the club affectionately and I’m sure he’d like to have played more games. Not his fault we blew a load of cash on a hang average striker.

8.) 23 Jul 2021 19:13:50
Not sure how many of us would walk away from a few million quid in all honesty! Can't really blame Tosun, he signed a contract after negotiations with the club, they agreed on the wage. If anyone is to blame, it's the people who sanctioned it in the first place.

With Delph, his playing Time or effort he puts in has nothing to do with being wrongly accused of being a paedophile. Can hardly blame him for speaking out over that really.

9.) 23 Jul 2021 20:02:31
I'm pretty chilled thanks JB and have enjoyed the weather.
I am merely stating that if the reports are true and tosun is interested in money not football, then I think we should pay him not to play football. I do not think we should pay him to get paid by someone else to play football.

10.) 23 Jul 2021 20:27:22
He has a contract that was signed in good faith. That’s all there is to it.
Glad you’ve had a good day mate 👍🏻
Let’s hope we have a few more once the season starts.

11.) 23 Jul 2021 21:58:14
I could understand paying the shortfall, but like the Koeman debacle where we made up the rest of his salary for the period he had left on the top of his Netherlands little salary
But I don’t think he should get double bubble.

12.) 23 Jul 2021 22:24:30
JB, I’d agree, it’s not Tosun’s fault he is where he is. To be fair, in my opinion, he’s not the worst and I also think if it wasn’t for agents he’d be more approachable. As you say someone spent too much but Tosun isn’t alone with that label.

13.) 23 Jul 2021 22:40:17
Davey you're seeing the Tosun situation as a fan . Would anyone leave Vauxhalls on £600 pw for Ford's on £400 . The Dave Hickson's of this world sadly don't exist anymore.

14.) 24 Jul 2021 00:09:19
Bernard left for less money to play elsewhere, never heard Bernard demanding we pay his final years salary.

I would personally keep hold of Tosun, if we are going to pay his final years salary, then let him remain at Everton, than get a nice signing on fee, at another club, and a top up salary by the club, offering Tosun a contract.

I am with Toffeedavey on this one, if a player is moving to another club, then why should Everton have to stump up a years salary, when he will be employed elsewhere and paid as well.

Shame the likes of John Moore’s is no longer around, he would have Tosun, turning out for the stiffs, on a cold wet Tuesday evening, down Grimsby, rather than pay him off, knowing he would be signing for another club.

15.) 24 Jul 2021 04:06:40
If you want to blame anybody blame the recruitment people who thought he was good enough, blame the legal people who gave him the contract.

Sure - I'm a bit angry when we've looked after him when he was injured but even that was what we were contractually obliged to do

None of us know what negotiations have taken place so stop having a go at the player. We signed the contract too.

16.) 24 Jul 2021 07:22:07
Not sure either myself or Bignev had a go at the player? We stated the very obvious that money matters to Cenk tosun, playing football does not. That is fine and absolutely up to him - as you all say he signed a contract. Part of that contract is paying him about 10 times what he's worth, and the other part is that he works for us and nobody else. All we are saying that if he wants the first half to be honoured then we should ensure the second half is also honoured. I know we've supported him through injury after injury but he's still entitled to ask for a few more million from us to leave - I just happen to think that the answer should be no!

17.) 24 Jul 2021 08:18:18
Hes injured until December and can sign a pre contract in January so why would he go?

18.) 24 Jul 2021 09:42:06
Ah didn't realise he was still out for that long! Might as well stay then for sure. He can just hope someone will take the risk on a pre contract agreement with his injury record. Can spend second half of season getting some match fitness under his belt with the under 23s and hope he doesn't pick up yet another injury!

19.) 24 Jul 2021 14:12:25
I'm sure if he and the rest of the players ever read these posts they would appreciate the support shown by some supporters

Thank goodness it's highly unlikely.

20.) 24 Jul 2021 15:03:32
Eh? The consensus from the posts is that he is choosing money over playing football but that he is perfectly entitled to do so. If he came on here he would surely just think "yep they are all correct. "?
Until joining this site I hadn't realised that supporting a football team means never criticising any element, and that you have to think everyone ever associated with the club is perfect in every way otherwise you're not supporting them properly - but I'm a big believer that you're never too old to learn so I'm grateful to you for educating me in that sense buddy.

21.) 24 Jul 2021 15:17:08
I presume by the way that most of you are astounded to see Bernard leave and are not expecting anyone else to leave this summer? None of the players people on here talk about wanting rid of would be able to get their wages matched elsewhere so if its so unreasonable to think that someone might want to go and play the game somewhere for 2m a year instead of 3m a year to do nothing (for example) then the only way our situation will improve will be as people's contracts expire.

22.) 24 Jul 2021 15:32:27
TD You really don't know wtf you are talking about. You said in a previous post that you didn't think you were having a go at Tosun yet in the previous posts post you openly questioned his character, desire and ambition
When did he get this latest injury? When he was out on loan so I presume Everton were getting a loan fee and some of his wages paid? He hadn't sat around just taking the money - he wanted to play. He was doing exactly what you are accusing him of not doing now

Get your facts straight - you're an embarrassment.

I admit I easily get wound up in some of my posts by obnoxious twits like you BW. You call me an embarrassment - and you say that primarily because I sometimes have views that differ to yours. You are the embarrassment in my eyes pal.

You say that "he was doing exactly what you are accusing him of not doing now". Is that the case? Engage your brain for just a moment before you answer that - and please bear in mind that you yourself made reference to the fact that the other club would have paid some of his wages. This is the key fact buddy - he was receiving his wages in full so I would suggest you give that some careful thought and then come back to me on whether it is exactly the same!

And to clarify. You say I questioned his character, desire and ambition. I said that choosing money over playing is a clear indication of his character, desire and ambition and I meant this in the footballing sense. The vast majority on here agree that he is doing the right thing so think that the character, desire and ambition shown is spot on. There's no way of knowing what each of us would do in same situation to be fair. If I'd been earning £3m a year for 3 years and there was an option to play but maybe it'd take me two years to earn that amount I too might be inclined not to bother.
My personal view is that there are still footballers who want to achieve things on the pitch and are prepared to take pay cuts (whilst still earning large amounts and already being set for life) at times if it means playing the game and having the opportunity to achieve but I accept I could be wrong about that.

TD He is contracted to Everton so he gets the wages he is contracted to get. This shouldn't be hard for you to understand as it is the same for every person on a contract.

Do yourself a favour and shut up before you make a bigger fool of yourself. We agreed his contract. End of

Why you think EFC can renege on contracts because we made a mistake is complete madness.

{Ed0666's Note - this getting tiresome people can we just finish this debate now please

TD I say you're an embarrassment because quite simply you are. You're not obnoxious. You're just an embarrassment to rational thinking fans

What are you saying now? Tosun should have said 'hey Everton - I never deserved the contract you offered me. Please take back while I am on loan'

Get a life.

{Ed0666's Note - TD & BW anymore tit for tat bollox and you’re both getting banned. This is a banter site if you want to personally attack each other take it elsewhere!

Yea no problem Ed. BW think there's been some confusion - I haven't intended to suggest that we should renege on the contract. I thought the original post was about us allowing him to leave to sign another contract with another club but him only being prepared to do it if we paid his contract up in full. Whilst he is at the club of course we should honour the contract. And I think he should stay at the club for the next 12 months, rather than us pay him the exact same amount to leave as I think that would be entirely pointless.

{Ed0666's Note - there you go mate it’s not so hard to give each other a belly rub and be rational is it?

28.) 24 Jul 2021 17:01:09
I agree Ed but I'm tired of idiots slagging off players on unfounded gossip in the papers.

{Ed0666's Note - TD is not an idiot he’s just a very naughty boy 😍

OK = point taken.

{Ed0666's Note - love conquers all mate ❤️

{Ed0666's Note - 🍆🍆🍆 there you go mate 😂

I think people are missing the obvious. he performed well in a very poor league!
He knows that he hasn’t got what it takes to succeed in the premier league so looking for a way out to save his falsely inflated reputation and ego.
Get rid!

Time for big Dunc to move and and the same for all evertonians.
He’s been a good servant but arguably not as good as a Cahill or a Baines but no clamouring for those to be made manager!
Don’t get the twisted obsession with Duncan. lovely fella and clearly loves EFC but hardly our most prolific or stand out player in the modern era.
I think his hard man cult like following has overtaken his actual ability and contribution to the club in the pitch.
Not knocking him at all but do question the obsession with some elements of the fan base.

Pickford deserves no criticism.
