So Frank sacked by phone. How trivial. Surely a man could at least tell him to his face. Like Frank or not he deserved respect.


{Ed025's Note - absolutely nick..

1.) 24 Jan 2023 13:08:28
Nothing suprises me at our club bud.

2.) 24 Jan 2023 13:28:11
That is how low this regime has dragged us, very poor and cowardly.

3.) 24 Jan 2023 13:28:41
That's appalling, shows you the depths they have sunk. Did someone say this us the third best paid board in the Prem.

4.) 24 Jan 2023 14:40:40
Maybe that's the way forward. Instead of banners to protest against the board, we should all ring up to voice our concerns about our club.

5.) 24 Jan 2023 14:47:37
Surely could have done it while they where all in London. Not a good advert for the next manager.

6.) 24 Jan 2023 16:35:47
The statement they put out 4-5hours after everyone knew also left a poor taste in the mouth!

7.) 24 Jan 2023 19:24:05
you once sacked a manager in the back of a taxi so what's the difference taxi or mobile phone?



11 Feb 2022 22:17:50
Looks like FM is at it again. Reports that following an unsuccessful / unimpressive interview with the board, FM has decided to offer Steve Hitchin the job of DOF. Oh dear where are we going to end up.


1.) 12 Feb 2022 06:54:43
How do you know that? ??‍♂️.

2.) 12 Feb 2022 08:14:09
That seems far fetched even for Everton. Mind you, who knows how people think or even if they are qualified to interview candidates. I was once reccomended for a job, I got it but some of the feedback (from one person in particular) was more to do with dress (I. T. and worked at home and/ or remotely) .

3.) 12 Feb 2022 10:21:07
If it was a poor interview and they are offering job can't say how they would make that knowledge. Who said poor interview. Sounds like trouble maker.

4.) 12 Feb 2022 15:08:50
Where did you see this?

5.) 12 Feb 2022 18:44:35
I read via various reports he interviewed well, I don't know if true obvs.

6.) 13 Feb 2022 11:22:51
How would anybody other than the people on the interview panel know that? I smell bull….



18 Jan 2022 22:16:31
Now Mourinho been touted as admired by Morshiri.


1.) 18 Jan 2022 23:01:32
If all the rumours were to be believed, we’d be hiring 6 or 7 managers. I simply cannot believe we’d go for Mourinho, he’s Benitez minus the red connection.

2.) 18 Jan 2022 23:06:19
No thanks.

{Ed025's Note - no please..

3.) 18 Jan 2022 23:32:58
Maybe we're missing a trick here. Why don't we hire 6 or 7 managers at the same time.

{Ed025's Note - we couldn,t afford sean longstaff smit, never mind 7 managers mate..

4.) 18 Jan 2022 23:48:07
Give them two months each. Let Mourinho cover June&July.

5.) 19 Jan 2022 08:18:48
And this morning it's all Wazza Rooney making the headlines. If you print every managers name, eventually someone will be able to state that they'd made the prediction. Who knows who'll get the gig or when? Time to leave the click bait addicts to it and wait for a club announcement. Come on Duncan Leighton and the boys! Let's take Villa and have a real reaction on the pitch.

6.) 19 Jan 2022 11:36:15
Our turnover in managers has been so quick Smitt it almost feels like we've had 2 or 3 at the same time.

7.) 19 Jan 2022 19:58:40
Think I would prefer Rondon as Player Manager!

8.) 20 Jan 2022 05:08:51
Cookie Manager maybe player never in a month of Sundays.

9.) 20 Jan 2022 08:56:41
Yes but at another club.



15 Jan 2022 00:03:24
As bad as we are I can see 7 points out of 9 coming up starting with 3 against Norwich.


1.) 15 Jan 2022 09:55:21
For the first time n 30 years I find myself wondering whether I’d take a loss and Benitez being shown the door. I just can’t see a way forward from where we are with him at the helm. A bit like Big Sam, he seems to portray his feeling that we should all just bow down and feel lucky that he agreed to be here. I’m not someone that wants a change of manager every ) months - just wish we’d gone young, hungry, forward thinking and not old, well fed and boring.

2.) 15 Jan 2022 10:14:37
I am non-commital mainly because Benitez is capable of anything.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 12:53:04
JB, I don't think anyone else would do any good with this set of players. They have been poor for many a manager in the last 6 years.

Looks like the board are going to let rafa get rid of them either now or when contracts run out on the summer and then maybe bring someone else in to develop the long term project of a successful team.

4.) 15 Jan 2022 13:36:55
Marco Silva more or less had the same, he finished 8th, he had to go in the end though, Ancelotti had roughly the same as Silva minus idrissa Gueye, he finished badly last year, but was still in with a shout of 4th with about 6-7 games remaining, Benitez has roughly the same minus Rodriguez, plus he has forced Digne out of the club, and he was one of the main creators for DCL, Rafas excuses are wearing thin, if he sets up negatively against the weakest side in the league, and we have a poor result because of it, he should be relieved of duties after the match.

5.) 15 Jan 2022 15:27:00
Was on the side of keep rafa in but 25 mins in losing to Norwich, if don't win this then yeah I think he has to go as that signals to me the players either have no confidence or they aren't playing for him.

6.) 15 Jan 2022 15:34:28
Our fans never learn.

7.) 15 Jan 2022 16:11:38
Give it up Swan lad.

8.) 15 Jan 2022 16:13:35
He has to go now. We could get relegated otherwise.

9.) 15 Jan 2022 17:00:33
I’ve been an advocate for patience and judging Rafa when we have our full compliment of players but now I’m starting to get worried that relegation is a real possibility.

10.) 15 Jan 2022 17:02:44
Won't get relegated even if Rhino and Big D get the gig until end of season but that's enough, Rafa must go now. Terrible performance, terrible tactics, terrible result. RAFA OUT!

11.) 15 Jan 2022 18:39:44
His persistence in playing Rondon is beyond me and his stubbornness will be his downfall!



10 Jan 2020 22:17:06
My ex pat boss in Germany (Evertonian) went to the Baltic coast at the weekend and got talking with a bloke who is an agent who deals mainly in the German leagues. The agent said a Russian contact of his is in the process of offering Daler Kuzyayev to Everton from Zenith St Petersburg. He was supposedly in the Russian squad at the last world cup. Offering as opposed to doing a deal! Have any of the eds heard of this one?


{Ed025's Note - im afraid i have not nick, the only guy who would is ED002 i imagine, i will ask him if hes on tomorrow mate..

1.) 11 Jan 2020 09:30:45
I've read kuzyaev can sign a pre contract so hence the agent offering him about. As for how he plays, he's a centre mid and that's all I know not sure how good he is.

Nice to see Ellis Simms getting a first half hat trick tonight. Might get more in the second half.


{Ed025's Note - the way we set up Nick it wouldn,t matter if we had Haaland up front mate, all forwards need support and our centre forwards get none because our midfield are static and set up to defend rather than attack..

1.) 26 Feb 2024 21:00:32
Sorry ed it wasn't a stab at us, just nice to see the lad doing the business.

{Ed025's Note - it is nick and im happy for him mate..

2.) 26 Feb 2024 21:12:40
Saw him live couple weeks ago. Very static and average top of championship striker. Did score a goal though.

3.) 26 Feb 2024 21:16:59
That said, I don’t understand why we sold him and signed Beto….

4.) 26 Feb 2024 21:39:21

———Nonsense - don’t comment on things you don’t understand - it is embarrassing————

5.) 26 Feb 2024 22:33:51
Whilst nice to see him score I think you need to look at the opposition he was playing against before anyone gets carried away and start moaning about selling him.

6.) 27 Feb 2024 10:35:39
I don't think it's too much about the opposition Gingerdan. More that he puts it in the net when given the opportunity. Something DCL and Beto are failing to do when chance opens up. Dcl can score as we saw under Ancelotti, but unfortunately he's currently a lone striker with zero support. Once he's told to stop chasing the ball and to stay in penalty area, he's more deadly. But we don't set up for that. May aswell play 8 defenders and leave Doucs and DCL to toil upfront on their own.

7.) 27 Feb 2024 13:57:57
Dentie it’s completely about the opposition.

Ellis has played 34 times in the championship this season and scored 6 goals!

He managed to get half his season total in one match the other night as was playing a team way below in the football pyramid.

Not sure why you say he puts it in the net when given the opportunity when his stats in the championship are so poor ??‍♂️.



24 Feb 2024 19:32:10
With games running out why not start the young ones who are hungry to play. Each week Dyche plays the same players who fail. Give the kids 60 mins then get the so called experienced pros on. Might do them good to get dropped for a younger one.


1.) 24 Feb 2024 22:26:59
Dyche doesn’t do that sort of thing. He would still be playing Keane if Branthwaite wasn’t so good.

2.) 24 Feb 2024 23:49:27
I would agree but who are the youngsters you are talking about? We usually let the decent 1s go.

3.) 25 Feb 2024 10:20:29
I think he must be referring to Mike, Rick, Vyvian and Neil - would certainly be more entertaining to watch at any rate.



02 Feb 2024 19:19:16
Hope Sean has the squad watching the Six Nations opener tonight. Let them see real blood and guts performances to get a victory.


{Ed025's Note - to be fair nick i dont think we can complain about the effort our guys are putting in mate, yes there is a lack of quality but they have been giving their all every game for me..



20 Jan 2024 23:04:22
Interesting to see Neil Maupay scoring goals. Three goals in the last three games shows form and he certainly plays with confidence. Why could we not get that out of him? Bad managers, bad coaches, bad system?


1.) 21 Jan 2024 00:32:43
He had plenty of chances and didn’t take them. Not every transfer works out. Good luck to the lad.

2.) 21 Jan 2024 02:33:31
He’s on more bumflufferies at Brentford isn’t he - probably why. Good result for us though. Brentford with Toney back different gravy.

3.) 21 Jan 2024 09:11:46
Well he'll be back in the summer with a year left on his contract so Brentford need to make us a decent offer or sell him elsewhere.

4.) 21 Jan 2024 15:47:43
His value will go up with each goal, which is positive.

5.) 21 Jan 2024 20:03:42
He is never a lone striker, he has played well in a two, we never gave him that luxury.

6.) 22 Jan 2024 18:09:50
We never had a striker fit to play with him ?.

7.) 23 Jan 2024 09:59:04
Lhrblue Smit666, equally valid comments.



17 Nov 2023 16:01:30
Why do people keep going on about the world is out to get us and, everyone wants us to go down. We broke the rules, we've got punished, now hold our heads high and get the points we need to stay up. That's the best way to shut the critics and jealous ones up. Let's just hope there is some honesty in all this and, the others who broke rules also receive punishments.


1.) 17 Nov 2023 16:11:07
Good luck with that don't you remember Niasse.

2.) 17 Nov 2023 17:09:33
I have actually got mates who support other clubs moaning that it should be more because the three promoted teams are so crap. Therefore it won’t be a meaningful deduction, as we cheated to stay up for two years in a row that’s not fair…. good grief.

3.) 17 Nov 2023 17:54:10
No wonder we're called the bitters. Stop looking back. Get on with it. We have the ability to get the points we need.

4.) 17 Nov 2023 18:33:50
Some of us have longer memories than others. They have had it in for us for years.

5.) 17 Nov 2023 18:40:59
Rubbish. Why should we just accept this given what other teams have been up to. Stand our corner and fight it. And feck what others think. It’s about time we bloody stood up for ourselves and pushed back.

Well the causes have gone TA, either in death, resigned, or one in particular, washed his hands of us. I guess at best, we fans can only learn from what happened and, hope we can influence the next lot in to do different. Do you think it's all too late?

How can you be unlucky losing 3-1? We lost because of poor tactics, bad team selection and, abismal substitutions.
