E I adio we won the cup😂.

You couldn't make it up. If true Rodriguez can go back to Madrid for nothing, if they want him back. So no transfer fee, just thanks and bye.
I've a suspicion he's Carlo's love child because he goes everywhere with him.

{Ed025's Note - i think someone has made that up mate..

1.) 18 Jun 2021 09:10:29
But Woburn said you couldn’t make it up Ed 😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - the press can make anything up ST..

That’s hilariously good Southern Toffee. Would also be laughably bad business wouldn’t it! A buy back clause of £0!

3.) 18 Jun 2021 22:35:27
Cud be worse!
We could all be blue and England fans tonight (like me ) !

4.) 18 Jun 2021 17:33:21
Yes Ed I said you couldn’t make it up😂.



14 Jun 2021 18:36:01
Preliminary works started at Bramley Moor. It's starting folks.

1.) 15 Jun 2021 12:10:06
Question is what will be in place first - Manager or new stadium!

2.) 15 Jun 2021 14:59:46
Stadium we will have sacked another two managers by then.



31 Jan 2021 11:19:22
Heard from a mate who works at the ground that there was a bit of a spat after the game between Rodriguez and Richarlison. Maybe just a bit of South American passion?

1.) 31 Jan 2021 13:13:23
Could have done with a bit of passion on the pitch Woburn.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 13:49:33
He was probably hoping Richy would run into space at some point.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 15:01:07
Or maybe he was showing him what it's like to get kicked and not just pretend you have been kicked.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 20:41:35
Might be wrong but it looked like Rodriguez was having a go during the game shouting “ why is it always down to me” “up to me”.



20 Jan 2021 13:14:01
Given the current climate I just can't see how we can bring more players in without selling first. The club like all clubs must be losing money. So it makes no sense to spend more at this time.
However, if they could sell Kean, Bernard and Bolasie. Then they could generate the funds for say a new right back or striker.
So it's understandable why the loan rumours are flying around again.
The way I look at it is if we bring loans in to strengthen the team then great. But if we don't then that's fine too, because as a squad we have improved as the season has progressed, and so European football would still be possible.
Stay positive, stay safe💙.

1.) 20 Jan 2021 14:33:35
The only players I can see possibly leaving in this window are Kenny and Bernard. The players we need to sell or get rid of are Besic Bolasie as they are not even in the squad. Both probably aren't bothered about playing as their wages are pretty tidy and an extra six months sitting out matches wouldn't be too much of a hardship for them.

2.) 21 Jan 2021 08:57:57
Woburn, all clubs will be loosing money, therefore nearly all clubs will be looking at loan players to come in or buy at below market value so for Everton to hope to sell players at current market value is nigh impossible I feel. Everyone needs to be patient I feel for the next 12 months before we get back to some normality. At least if they can loan players and get them off the payroll will be a bonus.

3.) 21 Jan 2021 11:40:46
Thought that’s what I was saying?

4.) 21 Jan 2021 22:06:50
I think I was agreeing with you.

If any of you guys are passing Bradley Moor dock can you take a couple of pics please. Seen nothing on club site and was interested as to what was going on at the moment.

1.) 15 Sep 2021 19:50:15
There was one or two in the press after finding unexploded bombs the other day mate. The bomb squad had to take them to Formby beach to detonate them.

Why not Anfield?

{Ed025's Note - love it smit..

you're welcome Wobumblue.



15 Sep 2021 12:37:10
People talking about the physicality of Burnley and how we lacked an enforcer.
Look the best way to beat teams like Burnley is to do what we did in the second half. Play them off the park, score lots of goals and move on.

1.) 15 Sep 2021 14:38:26
The tackle on richalison was unacceptable, but, rather than slagging off Burnley, it is Atkinson, who should be held to account.
If a player makes a grave error of judgement, he faces a fine or suspension or both, and this man is a repeat offender, and should be dealt with in the same maner.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely JCW, the tackle on young elliott was not as bad as the one on ritchie yet he got a red and the appeal was turned down!, i know the outcome for harvey was far worse but thats not the point mate he never even gave tarkowski a yellow, atkinson was a disgrace..

2.) 15 Sep 2021 15:25:29
Agree - to play slight Devils advocate Richy is never of the floor rolling around - if he didn’t go down as much he would get more free kicks
However those tackles were clear and Atkinson was in a good position - might be a tasty game at Turf Moore.

3.) 15 Sep 2021 15:57:52
Very true JCW.

4.) 15 Sep 2021 15:58:43
Can’t Tarowski be given a retrospective Red card by a panel Ed mate.

{Ed025's Note - i wouldn,t think so GB..

5.) 15 Sep 2021 17:40:12
He was abysmal Ed, he only had one thought in his head, and it wasn’t to win the ball.

{Ed025's Note - he tried to leave one on ritchie GB as they seen him as the main threat...and it nearly worked, but we have to have better protection for players from referees and atkinson acted like a complete dick mate..

6.) 15 Sep 2021 17:55:53
He did that mate.

7.) 17 Sep 2021 10:29:39
If Richarlisons legs had been "planted" and he hadnt jumped he'd of had both ankles broke, that's a fact. Later Atkinson booked Townsend for a shoulder barge! What planet is this guy on? Should be pensioned off. As for Burnley hope they get relegated (then sell us McNeil! ) their plan is obvious from kick off and in my opinion does football a disservice.



03 Sep 2021 15:44:41
When I employed people I agreed the wage they would get and what they would deliver in return. If they then didn't deliver I binned them.
Now I know it's a little different in the crazy world of football. But surely if a guy is being paid 200k a week then he should at least be expected to give 100% effort for that money. Barring injuries of course.
So my point is, if James is not meeting the levels of fitness required, or is not bothering to push for a first team place. Then can the club terminate his contract?
Or is this not possible as the manager has stated he is not part of his plans. Therefore he could argue that he is not been given fair opportunity to produce the goods.
Think given the guys history the club walked blindly into this one. Pity really because there is a quality player in there, what a waste.

1.) 03 Sep 2021 18:26:14
The manager has said he can move on if he wants.
Last season he scored half a dozen goals and half a dozen assists so he's good for the wages.
This season who's saying he isn't fit or not giving 100%? Are you just making this up or do you have insider knowledge? A spy at finch farm?
He wasn't in Rafas plans so was up for sale, now he's still here Rafa will have to suck it up and play him. If he doesn't then that is up to him but leaving our best player out of the squad is a dangerous thing to do and could backfire if results take a dip.

2.) 03 Sep 2021 18:50:12
He's been isolating for the same length of time as Godfrey so why are people only talking about James? It was the club who said he was surplus to requirements but there were no takers. He's back training now so it's up to him to get back in the squad and make himself useful until the next window.

3.) 03 Sep 2021 18:56:41
Read it again Smit before you try tearing it apart. I clearly said if he is not meeting the levels, at no point do I suggest he isn’t.

4.) 03 Sep 2021 19:03:42
Difficult one because at the end of the day we decided to pay him that amount. So would imagine if he is fit and ready to play then he's fulfilling his contract.
Would disagree though that six goals and six assists is worth 200k a week. Yes the guy is one of our best players, but if he only plays half the season then what's the point?

5.) 03 Sep 2021 20:12:02
Maybe the lad should take a look at how the young man at Utd conducts himself. 34 and fit as a fiddle. Trains, works hard and looks after himself, and fans at every club he has been at adore him.
Time for James to prove Rafa wrong and show him why he was once deemed world class. Then maybe, just maybe he would be adored by the blue masses once again.

6.) 03 Sep 2021 21:02:30
Six goals and six assists last season maybe he could get more if we are playing more attacking football this season, as he was the player who tried to always play forward.

7.) 03 Sep 2021 21:17:23
Carlo clearly tucked up Rodriguez as much as if not probably more than he tucked up everyone else associated with the club.

Let’s see how Rodriguez performs if he is given a chance in the team and then decide whether we should be complaining about him.

He clearly came to Everton for Carlo and played well for us last season and was our most creative midfielder last season. Carlo unfortunately left him high and dry by leaving and he now has a manager managing him who has had issues with him previously.

However both Rafa and Rodriguez need to sort those issues out for the benefit of the club - let’s judge both of them when we see how this situation develops or is resolved.

8.) 03 Sep 2021 21:38:34
And my point is. Why would you suggest that unless you have inside info, which is what I asked.
You say considering his history, what history? Do you know his agent? Him? His previous managers?
I'm assuming you're reading the papers and assuming they are correct.
What a waste? A waste of what? Because he gets injured?
You're questioning the integrity of a player who has done a decent job for us last season, our 3rd highest in goals and top 2 in assists.
Hes still the best player we have in terms of ability and on last seasons figures was more productive than all the rest apart from DCL and Ricky.
So let's not assume he isn't committed, fit or giving his all without some facts, after all he's played a part in all the pre season games hasn't he?

9.) 04 Sep 2021 05:38:48
Who says Rodrigues is the best player at our Club? The lad can pass a ball, he can score goals but other very important aspects are Teamwork, defence, workrate and fitness. Put him in the middle and he drifts wide where opposition then attack at will. Put him wide and then Dacoure is wasted having to spend most of his time covering our right side instead of playing his natural game. Benitez is no mug, he will have done his homework. Yes James is skillful but a luxury.

10.) 04 Sep 2021 08:36:52
Who would you say is a better player Bill?
I'm intrigued.

11.) 04 Sep 2021 10:07:03
When he played we were weak down his side and teams exploited that. He is not the player you are making him out to be Smit, as great players put 100% in every game and he doesn’t. It is clear we function better as a unit without him. Think Rafa knows this, and that is the reason he doesn’t fancy him.

12.) 04 Sep 2021 10:46:19
Very talented on the ball with a superb left foot. In my opinion though there are a number of things that make you a top player and the only one he possesses is ability on the ball.
Smit you say "let's not assume he's not committed or giving his all" - we don't need to assume do we because anyone that watched any of his games last season could see he wasn't committed or giving his all.

13.) 04 Sep 2021 11:35:58
james was good last season he's the one on the ball who can flick that pass to dlc or ricky for chance to score don't understand why he has to track back he's an attacking threat i said when he joined he's not a winger his best postion is behind the striker hope rafa can get him back in the team cause at times he can cause teams problems when on the ball.

14.) 04 Sep 2021 11:38:32
He had a role in the team last season and it wasn't to track back. In the 1st half of the season he registered the most sprints in the team, hardly a stat of someone not trying.
Yes he has injury problems and the manager knew that and played him accordingly. If he didn't have injury problems do you think he'd join a mid table team?
Look at the best players in the world. Messi, Ronaldo, Aguero, Neymar they don't track back because they aren't asked to. The same as Colman can't get forward as much due to his age and injuries.
For natural and technical ability he is miles ahead of anyone we have, still scores goals and still creates in one of the toughest leagues in the world was our 3rd highest scorer and 2nd highest creator despite his injuries. The lads won everything twice at club level and has played for the best teams in Europe.
Ability wise he's street's ahead of anyone we have.
I'm not sure which games you were watching towards the end of last season but we were awful towards the end, played dire football and James was nowhere near the team. Let's not rewrite the season we were 4th in February and finished 10th. James was injured from around that time so I'm not buying it we function better as a unit without him.

We function better this season with a different manager and players but without seeing James in the team we could be worse or better, who knows?

15.) 04 Sep 2021 12:43:28
It's mad that a load of posts on here of late are lauding Iwobi this season yet are questioning James? Comical really. Iwobi has played well for 3 games and the fan base now wants to give him a chance! The club have told James he is surplus to requirements and the fan base quickly try and make out that James isn't good enough, he wants out, he doesn't try etc etc. Fans are extremely fickle.

16.) 04 Sep 2021 15:55:34
Smit better all round player (s) Richarlison, Decoure, Alan. Played in their correct positions. Rodrigues would be a good 10, but the lad has no discipline, he will wander, leaving someone else to fill the gaps. Already said he is a very good skillful player, but a Team needs more than that.

17.) 04 Sep 2021 16:55:03
Bill. Alan doesn't score goals, and before you say that's not what he is in the team for then isn't that the same as asking James to track back?
James last season made some passes that our lads could only dream of, he scored goals that our forward players will probably never be able to score and he's done the same for every team all his career. That's why he's played for the teams he has and won what he has.
The pundits, managers and players all call him world class and that is what his career has been. People questioning his tracking back, not giving 100% is ludicrous. You don't get to where he has and win what he has by not giving 100%.
Guaranteed if he hadn't got injured in January when we were top 4 we would have got the extra 4 points for European football. Maybe more.

18.) 05 Sep 2021 10:14:45
I wouldn't personally be putting him in a bracket with Messi and Ronaldo Smit but game of opinions so fair play to you for seeing it that way.

In one of your posts you mention other people trying to rewrite history. In your latest post you stated that last season James scored goals that our forward players will never be able to score - obviously that's fact because you wouldn't be rewriting history, but they've slipped my mind. Which ones is it you're talking about?

19.) 05 Sep 2021 19:28:57
TD the one against united for me was the best but Leicester was also a pearler.
Brilliant individual skill and goals.
All our last season seemed to be prodded in from inside the box. No Digne screamers that we're used to.



02 Sep 2021 20:11:53
People on here saying they would be happy with 10th why?
Yes we have spent a fortune on players, but many of those players are still at the club.
Allan, Doucoure and Godfrey already doing it. It's now time for Iwobi, Mina, Gomes and Gbamin and the rest to step up.
Top 10 would be a failure otherwise.

1.) 02 Sep 2021 20:59:14
I think we will will finish higher than 10th.

2.) 02 Sep 2021 21:57:02
GB thinks we will win the FA Cup, League Cup and Premiership every season. ;-)

3.) 02 Sep 2021 22:24:14
Guernsey is a beautiful place and the mushrooms there are lovely. Only joking GB, nobody could ever doubt your heart mate. I hope one day you prove us doubters wrong mate. 💙.

4.) 02 Sep 2021 22:56:24
I have always considered avoiding relegation as a success. Only 35 more points needed….

7.) 03 Sep 2021 21:28:34
It does mate far too bloody long ago eh but what a Team.



27 Aug 2021 10:16:31
Well at least if we keep Ricky and he sulks, nobody will notice.

He did mate, but to be fair I think everyone watching realised that the formation wasn’t working. Still the guy changed it and we looked like a different team because of it.
Think the best thing to happen to this club recently was Ancelotti going. I mean could you imagine him going for Townsend and Gray?
Rafa has made a good start, get decent results in the next two games and people will forget his past, and start looking to the future.
