Great result yesterday, lots of passion and energy shown by the lads.
I'd give big Dunc the united game and let's see how he sets them up with a weeks training under his belt.

I'm hoping the 442 disappears, we were outnumbered in the middle yesterday and on another day chelsea could have scored a couple more.

Away from home we will need to win the battle in the middle for sure and with the same passion and energy we can get something from Old Trafford.


1.) 08 Dec 2019 11:27:04
Smitt the 442 did disappear he took off Ricky for Tom. 442 got us into a position to win 451 meant we held on to that lead. Good in game management if you ask me. We were at home so starting with 442 for me is aggressive formation that sends a message to us as fans and the opposition, Everton are going to try to win the game. Away from home like you I would expect a different set up we do have quite a good counter attack when we are on form. Great start by big Dunc I think he may have seen his stock rise with both the management and some of the supporters that thought he may have been part of the problem with ex managers. If we want a manager with passion that loves the club he certainly provides that. I'm made up for the guy. Definitely one for the future in my opinion.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 12:02:39
Smit I don't care what was reported about the bond between the players and Silva, their just had to be a problem. For Ferguson to get the likes of Schneiderlin playing so much better speaks volumes to me. At present we have problems in the middle because of injuries but if all the players show the same passion, energy and desire that they show yesterday we will have little problem getting results and moving up the table. Hopefully we can recruit some good additions in January.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 12:06:46
While he get points Smit let him have a bit of a run mate, It will be interesting to see what he does at Utd .

Btw Smitty when DC sees you using his 'avi' he will go ape lol 🤣.

4.) 08 Dec 2019 13:54:44
I thought he made some very astute changes. Firstly was the 442 set up. Secondly we stopped pushing up to the half way line and getting caught out with the simple ball over the top. At least 3 of Liverpools goals were that simple. a simple ball over the top or through the middle and our defenders too slow to turn and defend. Thirdly, he stopped this stupid roll out of the ball from Pickford and the never ending crossfield passes that look like we will lose possession and concede. Forthly, we pressed. We pressed as a team. not just one or two players. we got into them in every position until we went back from 442 to 451. Finally DCL with Richy just behind him worked a treat. DCL looked this good in one other game this season but has toiled hard for little result over the season. mainly because he has been on his own. Sometimes he had wingers. but noone besides him to lay it off to. Yes this game Dunc got things right. let's see if he can continue now.

5.) 08 Dec 2019 13:54:57
Dunc probably told Morgan he would kick him round the training ground if he didn’t put a proper shift in!
To have pride in himself the shirt and the badge! And to earn the bloody good wages he’s paid!

6.) 08 Dec 2019 15:23:48
It was good to see him switch the formation to see out the game. Silva never had that in him.

I'd love him to get the United game, I'll be there and would love it if we could go and get something from that game. Even a draw would build confidence and start a bit of a run.

As for the Avatar, I picked it a few games ago (when things looked bad) but it has only just been approved.
Another win and I might have to change it back.

7.) 08 Dec 2019 15:48:11
Duncan Ferguson made it simple, no over complicated tactics, play for each other, if you lose the ball, chase it down, simple football that gets over complicated by Managers.

I would give Dunc the Leicester cup game without a shadow of doubt.

Yesterday the players got their identity and self belief back.

Let’s not rush in straight away for a new Manager, at least give Dunc a couple of games.

8.) 08 Dec 2019 16:35:26
You can have what ever formation you want, but Dunc got a performance out of every single player yesterday, the intensity was first class and what won us the game yes they could of scored more but so could we. Nice to see 442 and then change it later on, good in game management.

9.) 09 Dec 2019 21:02:32
I'd give big Dunc until the end of the month. United have got some form and Leicester are a great side, but Arsenal, Burnley and Newcastle could/ should be winnable. Then that gives the board plenty of time to select a new manager if they decide to go that way.



05 Dec 2019 16:58:35
This might sound a bit daft but wasnt Brands bought in to get the U23s and under 18s etc coached and playing the same style as the 1st team?
And if so, wouldn't it be an option to give Unsworth the reigns until the summer or a replacement is found?

He has the Under 23s playing well and in the same style (whatever that style is) the squad is in better shape than it was the last time he was given the role.

Anyway just a thought as he's not been mentioned this time.


{Ed002's Note - I don't think there is much chance of that happen. DF for the weekend then Moyes - or a concerted effort for Marcelino as I have explained - but he is not keen.}

1.) 05 Dec 2019 19:27:15
Would Moyes work with a DOF Ed002? I seem to think he wants to run the show and play his style of play.

{Ed002's Note - He would but don't lose sight of Brands' role.I think they would be fine - and just maybe Brands will get a chance to do what he is best at. Else he will walk.}



24 Nov 2019 18:05:11
Rumour has it he's gone. Not confirmed but my mate who owns the chippy that Brands gets his deep fried octopus from says it's done.


1.) 24 Nov 2019 18:42:23
Smit666 just heard same from my son.

2.) 24 Nov 2019 18:57:51
Social media really hotting up now. Rafa supposedly at Finch Farm at 4-30pm. I need to go and lay down lol.

3.) 24 Nov 2019 19:09:15
So Bill your son has confirmed that Brands gets his deep fried octopus from Smit's friends chippy or is it more tasty than that?

4.) 24 Nov 2019 19:10:01
Does he work at the chippy BCT?

5.) 24 Nov 2019 19:42:15
Someone else is posting that unsworth has told the U23’s he won’t be with them for a while 🤷🏻‍♂️
If Rhino does step in short term we might see some of the young talent 😍.

6.) 24 Nov 2019 20:14:57
Hasn’t this happened before?

7.) 24 Nov 2019 20:07:39
Bloody hell i've logged into the 'X Files' 🤭.

8.) 24 Nov 2019 21:41:20
So they held a exec board meeting on Saturday only for one of them to spill beans in local chippy, at least come up with something believable.

{Ed002's Note - It was the the curry house.)

9.) 24 Nov 2019 22:34:19
I think we got excited over nothing. I don't think he has gone. Can any of the eds enlighten us?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has happened.}

10.) 24 Nov 2019 22:08:18
The comedy is not lost on you Trueblue.

11.) 25 Nov 2019 08:57:59
Actually Smitty TBM's retort was hilarious just don't tell him I said so 🤫.

12.) 25 Nov 2019 09:01:39
My bad, may not have been the same chippy. Son counts beans not chips, so mistaken.

13.) 25 Nov 2019 09:27:03
Silva has gone? Silva getting a vote of confidence from the board? 90% of fans want Silva out? make of it what you will.



08 Aug 2019 21:35:39
Probably get Zaha in January when he's had a grump for a few months and Palace are in the relegation zone. 😉.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 08:20:47
Haha, could do but think that ship has sailed now, was probably our only shot are signing him, we have Iwobi at RW now so probably won’t be looking at that position for a while again. Hopefully his grump lasts into tomorrow so he’s poor against us or doesn’t play at all. 👍🏻.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 08:38:45
yeah zaha ship has sailed now i think, will look for younger if they were to go back in for a winger and move iwobi more central.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 09:32:27
Let's be positive and believe Silva will have them playing well enough that we don't need him.
We have a good strong squad now.

Fitting Bernard, Iwobi, Calvert Lewin, Richarlison, Kean into top 3 is a challenge

Sigardson, Gomes, Gbamin, Delph, Davies, Scheiderlin into middle 3 tough

And there's others who will be fighting to show that they deserve a chance as well

What great problems for Silva to have.

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

4.) 09 Aug 2019 11:11:17
Iwobi is a LW (another one) not a RW.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 13:16:13
Can’t see getting zaha - if that Eason cards would not sign Iwobi - could see centre half in Jan - that’s all we need. think that’s the last time we will see 5-6 coming in. hopefully Gibson, Ellis, Hollgate take there chance.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 15:07:07
BCT, Iwobi can play either wing or behind the striker so not just a LW, this is why he was bought due to this versatility.

{Ed002's Note - he plays nearly all games in his natural position of LW. The club did not buy him because he is versatile.}

7.) 09 Aug 2019 15:40:12
The move does allow richarlison to still play rw and may allow Bernard to play cam. Iwobi plays am for Nigeria and i think he was used as lw for arsenal due to their lack of depth on the wing positions. Iwobi is a hopeful signing but i would have preferred to sign a natural rw as that position needed to be addressed. I do wonder that if KM or YB don't move on, that they will integrate them into the squad until atleast January.



30 Jul 2019 00:39:06
Everton bid for Zaha but the bid is rejected. Another supposed bid is fake.
Are Everton just saying to Zaha with the first bid, we are interested and if you want to leave we want you.
Everton then wait to see if the player kicks up a fuss to leave?


1.) 30 Jul 2019 08:50:39
Or could we have made the first bid and be back to other targets trying to get them done while the media is distracted with all this Zaha chatter 🤷🏻‍♂️.

I mean if it is going to be Moyes they were never going to let Man u away be his first game were they?




11 Dec 2019 10:34:59
If Dunc gets it until the summer I think someone like Sammy Lee as his no2 could really help him.


1.) 11 Dec 2019 11:22:27
yeah get big sam in as DOF too.

2.) 11 Dec 2019 12:42:38
Smit isn't to far off. Remember Sammy Lee on our touch line, professional.

3.) 11 Dec 2019 13:05:13
It would be interesting to see who DF would choose, sure if Sammy is his choice and of course is he (Sammy) up for it?

4.) 11 Dec 2019 14:12:31
I can imagine it now, Sammy hugging Duncs kneecaps when we score😂.

5.) 11 Dec 2019 15:04:13
''up for it' lol Woburn no pun meant at all even if Sammy is on the 'vertically challenged' side 😊.



09 Dec 2019 19:37:54
Right that should put a stop to the calls for Benitez.
He's ruled himself out of the Everton job live on TV.


1.) 10 Dec 2019 07:05:25
That’s great news. Never understood that one anyway.

2.) 10 Dec 2019 12:05:53
Not sure what you saw on tv, but it’s being reported that he wouldn’t rule managing us out at some point in the future as he’s still got family in Liverpool etc. He also backtracked on his small club jibe. He did say he’s happy with his job and project in China so wouldn’t be rushing back to manage in UK. However he wouldn’t say otherwise would he? Not going to want to upset his current employers.

I’ve got a feeling our new manager is going to be someone from left field and who hasn’t had much of a mention - it’s clear nobody really knows what’s going on as there are so many managers being linked.

3.) 10 Dec 2019 12:42:46
If you watched to the end he didn't, he had a lengthy chat about how he can't this season, which will be that he is tied into his present contract. He explained he's a professional manager, never say never and then admitted he was wrong over the little club comment. He should have and meant to say little team. As said by Gingerdan, he has a lot going on in Liverpool. Can and would Everton wait?

4.) 10 Dec 2019 13:19:49
From what I have read today I would say he is 'courting' the job at least!



05 Dec 2019 21:32:05
Absolutely made up that big Dunc will get at least a game in charge.
He is and always will be my favourite Everton player (well unless we sign someone else who goes around scoring goals and head butting anyone who gets in their way)
Will be interesting to see who is in his starting 11. He always showed courage and fight as a player let's hope he has the conviction to do the same as a manager.


1.) 05 Dec 2019 21:52:53
Interesting Smitt, can I ask do you think he warrants this opportunity given he has been round x5 managers and still has not lost his jobs? Is he somehow rightly exempt or are his hands as dirty as the other failures?

2.) 05 Dec 2019 21:54:39
Smit if big dunc picked me to play I would play my heart out at the thought of getting his abuse after the game lol.

3.) 05 Dec 2019 21:55:03
Agree mate.

4.) 05 Dec 2019 22:05:41
Or. like Lukaku I would look at him and think. I’ve scored more goals and more premier league than you ever did and I’m 23 years old. ‘Run up my back and go steal a living elsewhere’
By your reckonings Roy Keane, Souness and Mark Hughes would have had the same effect as managers No? .

5.) 05 Dec 2019 22:07:03
I've said this before Blu. He has been around since the Moyes days so has been there whilst we finished 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th twice so if he is to be held responsible for the two 11th place finishes then he deserves credit for the other finishes.
He is an everton legend and has outlasted 5 managers so he must have something going for him.

6.) 05 Dec 2019 22:19:36
Sorry Smit, on this we will have to disagree. My Everton legends have won titles and didn’t turn up for just x6 games a season. I respect your opinion my friend and whilst he single handedly scared the living day lights out of Liverpool for a good few seasons I don’t think he was kept on as he is doing something right. It smacks more of Sentimental Bill to me.

7.) 05 Dec 2019 22:25:31
Rubbish. Alex ferguson wasnt a great footballer, Mourinho wasn't even a footballer but were/ are great managers, they won nothing as players. Did the players look at them and say what have you done a s a player? No.
If you think Dunc doesn't deserve to manage us for one game whilst we search for a manager then that is your opinion, although it is based on absolutely no info on what dunc has done in his day to day job for the last 5 managers.
Moshiri has been our owner for the last 4 management failures, do you want him out too on the same thought process?

8.) 05 Dec 2019 22:44:26
Well there’s one thing is certain, he can’t do any worse.

9.) 05 Dec 2019 23:02:55
No he does deserve a go, your right for sure. Legend. NO, again my opinion that’s all he played 9 mins in a Cup Final, him, Cahill, Arteta great players but legends nah not for me. (Makes me cringe when they are described as legends as the likes of Southall, Reid et al must be Demi-gods to people who think they are legends.
Do I want Moshiri out, that’s a difficult one for me as the Man pretty much OWNs the club. He is putting the money in (regardless of where it’s coming from) and therefore has the right to do what he wants legally. Dunk is a member of staff on a wage.
Be good if he was a success though of course but I want the whole lot of them gone and a new manager to make huge changes top to bottom to change the culture at my club.

10.) 06 Dec 2019 00:36:19
I don't know why we are wasting our time arguing whether Dunc deserves a game or two in charge.

What matters is that, compared to other sides, Everton have handled this process badly and we look like a bunch of idiots. It's not as if it's our first time at this either

How we think we will better attract top managers after this is beyond me.

11.) 06 Dec 2019 06:05:01
The manager can't change anything Blu. That should be Brands job and that's the model we have chosen.
Our managers are just coaches and are expected to get the team winning, moyes and others would struggle in that model I suspect.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too smit..

12.) 06 Dec 2019 07:11:24
100% Smit, that’s where I wonder if we have the ‘model wrong’ but a lot of teams are adopting that approach it seems. Brands role has never been more significant in choosing a successor (if that truly is our model) ? 👍.

13.) 06 Dec 2019 07:18:57
Don't know him personally smit, I hope he inspires. Surprised that the Club appear not to have had someone lined up and instead there is a 4 man short list apparently.

14.) 06 Dec 2019 09:17:09
I'm sorry - he's been with the club for years but what does he actually do?
He's not assistant manager (didn't Sammy Lee take the team when Fat Sam swanned off for the weekend that time) , he hasn't any managerial experience, even at U23 level
Apparently he did some extra training with the forwards - no evidence of any success is there?

Please - someone must know what we have been paying him for all these years other than just drinks boy and club ambassador

I liked him as a player but some of the decisions we are making are, putting it mildly, weird.



05 Dec 2019 11:07:47
Marco silva might not be the right man for Everton but I've said it before as long as our spine consists of Pickford, Keane, schneiderlin, Siggy and DCL, no manager will succeed.
Keane, schneiderlin and Siggy being the worst culprits. They go hiding and I've lost count of how many goals keane and schneiderlin have cost us this season.
Iwobi and Tom had poor games but at least they wanted the ball.


1.) 05 Dec 2019 11:22:57
Agree with you the spine of the team is not there, Keane was atrocious last night and Sigurdsson anonymous, Pickford maybe could have done better for a couple of the goals also.
How he continues to pick them baffles me, these youngsters that are in the under 23s and are supposedly highly thought of must be so frustrated to see the same dross being picked week in week out while they don’t get a look in.
If we’re not careful it won’t only be the first team that will need rebuilding it’ll be the under 23s also.

2.) 05 Dec 2019 11:23:07
''Marco silva might not be the right man for Everton''

Marco silva 'IS' not the right man for Everton 'NO' doubts anymore!

This team needs a proper manager that understands football management that's what's wrong with this team!

3.) 05 Dec 2019 12:23:41
Exactly Smit, I know we have had a lot of injured players so Silva has had problems with who he can select but his reliance on Schneiderlin, Siggy and Keane have cost him his job, they should have been dumped and replacements brought in over the last few windows. We have to fire Silva immediately and get in someone who can identify and recruit replacements this January window, God knows who this will be.

4.) 05 Dec 2019 12:46:25
Still believe the players are not good enough, I would put them all up for sale with the exception of Richarlison and Digne the rest are not up to the job, I would be surprised if they would be wanted by any other Premiership Club.

5.) 05 Dec 2019 12:50:29
''immediately and get in someone who can identify and recruit replacements this January window''
Totally agree Mike .

6.) 05 Dec 2019 13:26:08
Everton fc are normally a class club when it comes to supporting people charity and local issues, let’s hope this is the case with Silva, if he’s going let it be with dignity and not drag it out with him being the scapegoat that fans vent their displeasure at on the weekend!
Although he’s still paid to do the job and its obviously not working then put him out of his misery as he cannot change things round at this late stage!

7.) 05 Dec 2019 15:29:29
think we were very lucky not to concede more than the 5 last night they hit are right side with 40 50 yard passes think marco has to go think he's lost players confidence just look like he was lost on sidelines as for new manager i have no idea but just hope whoever it is all of us have got to get behind him and make goodison park a place were away teams struggle to play and start picking up points.

It was good to see him switch the formation to see out the game. Silva never had that in him.

The fact Moyes hasn't got the job already shows he isn't wanted by the board.
I think we might let Dunc run with it and if the results come in then appoint in the summer.

Is this a wind up? Moyes never played against a top 6 side like we did today had have gone for the draw. Stop rewriting history. Moyes is no fit to lace big duncs boots.
