Not a 100% perfect transfer window but still a very good one where we

Signed a goalkeeper which improves our cover for Pickford and which allows Virginia to go out on loan and gain valuable experience

Signed a right back on loan for a year who will really challenge Seamus for his place. After a year we have the option to sign him if he is a success, bring back Kenny if he has improved out on loan or look at the situation again but we're now in a much better situation

Centre back is why I am saying not 100 % but let's not forget Gbamin can play as centre half so we have provided some cover and I think Mina will prove himself this season

In midfield, unfortunately Gueye has left us but he goes with all our best wishes and we have Delph and Gbamin as strong signings, Don't forget we also got one of our prime targets Gomes on a permanent for really good price

In attack MOISE KEAN! What a signing and again what a bargain he will turn out to be. He's young but is our new Lukaku and him and Calvert Lewin will push each other. Iwoebi came in very late and he is an big improvement to the squad

All in all a good transfer window and my thanks to Brands and all his team, the owner for his support and Marco for selling the project

Really good window mate.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 09:21:32
On top of this they have also managed to move out a lot of the squad that weren't getting a game with more to come until the European window closes

Others have also strengthened but we knew that would happen.
I think we have a chance of catching Chelsea and Wolves, I'm not sure Arsenals attack can offset its lack of defence and I also think Man Utd are there for the taking, even with Maguire so BRING IT ON


3.) 09 Aug 2019 17:44:28
Only problem for Virginia is my mates who are Reading fans said he had a bit of a mare for his first game and reading picked up some Brazilian keeper during the window
Hope he does get some game time though as I heard he looks a great prospect.

Anyone know why Mina wasn't at training yesterday?

A good window. 4 players in who have already proved their worth in matches,
Godfrey looks a good buy/ investment in the future
A goalkeeper in who should provide some cover/ backup to Pickford
Walcott out on loan - 50% of wages covered. Sandro out so another chunk of wages saved.
Hopefully Besic, Bolassie off to the EPL next week
Thanks Marcus and Carlo.

2.) 06 Oct 2020 07:13:43
Thats my only criticism bw. A goalkeeper who is 3rd choice at his Club a challenge for Pickford? Are our existing two, really not up to it? As for the rest brilliant, our best strategy for years. Ancelloti and Brands (get him signed up Everton) ! What a driving force. Oh! and keep those advisors away Mr Moshri.

3.) 06 Oct 2020 09:27:45
Not sure about being 3rd choice at a club is a reflection on a players ability, more about what the management team thinks. Don't forget our most creative player was third/ fourth choice at his previous team.

4.) 06 Oct 2020 10:24:31
Romero is 3rd choice at United, behind a very error prone keeper and is 3 years older and everyone says he would have been a better option.

5.) 06 Oct 2020 12:26:23
I have to be honest I know very little about the new keeper but that doesn't matter. What matters is that Carlo and Marcus rated him enough to sign him

That's good enough for me after seeing Allan, Doucoure, Rodrigues and Nkounkou play after Carlo and Marcus signed them

Looking forward now for the Liverpool which we can go into full of confidence




03 Oct 2020 17:04:16
Listen - we're 4 out of 4 in the league. Won 3 Caroabo ties so into quarters

Just enjoy. Some players have played better, Some not so much but the team has won every time

Just enjoy

We are Everton

Let's be honest - I didn't think we played as good as we did against Spurs but Hey - 2 games 6 points and the side is still getting used to the new players

Early days but happy so far. Still some work to be done on the defense but we're showing a lot more creatively

Onwards and upwards

Not too concerned about the team today. The important thing is that it is the last game of the season and I hope everyone puts a shift in and we can go into the close season with our spirits up


bw2412 v2.0

1.) 26 Jul 2020 16:42:03
1st half nearly over and unfortunately there's been no evidence of anybody wanting to send us into the close season happy. Very very disappointing so far.

2.) 26 Jul 2020 17:55:29
That was abysmal. How we can attract new players with that showing is beyond me. Who on earth would want to come and play that sort of football.

3.) 26 Jul 2020 18:01:34
Mate they obviously didn’t have the same feelings as you. That was absolutely disgraceful.

4.) 26 Jul 2020 18:08:48
Who played like they cared? Every one of them should be ashamed but I doubt that they give a damn about how the fans feel.



20 Jul 2020 17:35:21
Very disappointed with the side picked tonight.
Alright apparently Kean has an injury so not available but
Siggy instead of Gordon
Davies instead of Baningime
Sidibe instead of Coleman
Why? I cannot see what we are learning for next season
Only good thing is Simms being involved in the squad.

{Ed025's Note - i feel your pain bw..

1.) 20 Jul 2020 17:59:53
Yes terrible midfield. I just don't understand why theses players have been picked yet again including the keeper if it was Silva we would be going bananas.

{Ed025's Note - i have said all along skylark...carlo is not blameless in all this mate..

2.) 20 Jul 2020 18:46:02
The game itself isn't exactly proving why the choices. We've just had our best chance but it's been turgid until then.

3.) 20 Jul 2020 19:04:38
I'd say Carlo was blameless in what's happening at the minute. The week before he arrived we were in the bottom 3. He hasn't brought any of his own players in yet. At least he is willing to publicly tell the players their performances have not been acceptable. Knew it wouldn't take long before people started on him.

4.) 20 Jul 2020 19:49:23

First let me say we are very lucky to have Carlo as our manager and yes, we have to give him time to get things right
However I think he has taken time to give Gordon his chance. Bernard, Iwobi and Walcott have not set the world (or Goodison) alight this season
Same as far as I am concerned with Davies/ Siggy (Gomez since his injury) yet Baningime/ Adenirons don't get a look in
The season is over. Why aren't we looking at the youngsters with next season in mind.
Even before it was mathematically impossible to qualify for Europe I don't think some players deserved the loyalty Carlo has given them
That is not to say I don't rate him highly (he has deservedly won far more than me) but he is not immune to criticism.

5.) 20 Jul 2020 20:01:58
I'm not starting on CA but he isn't untouchable I just wish he would drop most of the squad even if it's just for one game.

{Ed025's Note - most of them done well in that second half skylark, which beggars the question...what have they been doing for the last 61/2 games?..

6.) 20 Jul 2020 20:32:05
I thought Gomes played well, I actually saw him sprint and his passing was good. Siggy was ok but Davies was terrible. I can't see why Beni hasn't been given a game surely he can't be worse.

7.) 21 Jul 2020 05:41:36
Half time

At least the adverts are giving me something to watch.

BlueDanny -You are right about fans from abroad travelling to home games and I'm totally unclear on the numbers but that is totally different to travelling to away games. The location of home games are the same every match so airlines can put extra flights into their scheduling and fans can also regularise their accomodation, For away games it is a different city every week. Flights won't be as plentiful so more expensive, accommodation will have to be arranged, possibly at a premium. Sure, a good travel agent can do most of this for you but how many of our away support drive or coach to matches, don't stay overnight and lose a day of their weekend, not all weekend.

I believe regular away supporters will decrease without any increase in fans going to home games from abroad - unless of course the new leagues are unsuccessful and there are therefore more seats available but, if they are unsuccessful, why would they want to go?

One thing we do agree upon is that the game is becoming unaffordable to the English working class. Long term that might be it's death-knell.

There's one other point I'd like to make. I think the days of mega money TV deals are beginning to come to an end. In Thailand I have an Android TV box, readily available from Amazon or any other internet selling site and here in Thailand, it is not illegal to stream live sporting events so I can get SKY, BT, BEIN Sports, NBCSN and a myriad of foreign sites showing the matches live without me paying any fees except standard internet access. I could also get these on any Android phone with the right APP. It's the same throughout Asia and the TV companies have tried but failed to stop this growing trend.

It's not legal to do this in the UK but it is done. I learnt how to do it whilst in the UK. There's been attempts to stop people doing it in the UK but it's being done more and more and, as I said it's common place in Thailand and all through Asia

TV companies are going to see revenues dropping because of this and the corona virus will compound it. Will pub landlords continue to pay £100's, £1000's to show football if they are half full due to social distancing. Will fans continue to pay high subscriptions that only widen the gap between themselves and the clubs/ players or will they move more and more onto streaming sites, legally or illegally

There will still be advertising revenues but will they be able to sustain their fees

I'd be very surprised if the revenue from games can be maintained long term

Also, has anyone thought about the travelling fans who go to away matches? How are they going to afford the increased costs or find the additional time away from family/ work, never mind the new restrictions to travel caused by Covid 19.

I'm living in Thailand now. I'm only mentioning that as the 6-7 hour time difference between the UK and Thailand has affected my viewing patterns

I still watch all the Everton games. Everton is my team and I would want to watch them whatever league they are in, whether it be Premier, the Championship or even lower
Where my viewing has changed though is when I was in the UK I would watch any Premier game that was on the box but now, when it is being shown late evening or even early morning if it is a UK night match most times (even a top of the table clash) I can't be bothered to stay up. I think any cross time zone league would struggle for the same reason. Is there any other sport that has shown that such an arrangement works? How many supporters say they support their team but are not as bothered about their national side playing in the world cup or similar international tournaments

I'm also not interested in watching different leagues in different countries. I don't watch Barcelona even though Messi plays for them. I don't watch Juventus just to see Ronaldo. I want to watch Everton and the teams they play

I have 3 grown up sons in the UK - all of them deserters who don't support Everton. If I was a broadcaster the thing that would worry me is that they are all less interested in football than I am. It's a very, very small sample but I believe interest in football is on the wane. The gap between players and normal people is widening

I think the TV channels and the top sides can see this and so they are looking to develop new viewers but the new viewers they want are in the developing markets such as China, the US, India, Asia Pacific etc. Personally, I believe the new viewers they will attract will not be as big as they think due to time differences and will not compensate for the the viewers they will lose such as myself, other Evertonians, Newcastle, Wolves, Napoli, Schalke, other team supporters who want to support their team, not some team 100's. 1000's of miles away with no 'connection' to them.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with all of that bw, i too have 2 sons who are deserters so i what you mean and i would not watch the breakaway league either mate if everton were not involved..

I think I agree with you gibbo. He's had a nightmare at Arsenal but before Arsenal Emery had a very good CV and was highly regarded.

I've only read Pereira's CV on the Echo and it's not that exciting - some successes but lower leagues and he's not stayed anywhere too long

Out of the 2 I'd say Emery if he has recovered enough from Arsenal but hopefully there are others in the hat that appeal more.

My 2 penneth for what it's worth (probably not even 2 penneth)

Pickfords tackle might be deemed rash but he was doing what 99% of goalkeepers would do, throwing himself at the ball to narrow any goal scoring angles

I didn't see any intention at all of aiming at the VVD to injure him while I did see VVD deliberately set out to foul Richarlison and DCL before the incident. Luckily they weren't seriously hurt

I hope VVD makes a quick and full recovery - nobody wants to see a player injured. In my opinion Pickford certainly didn't and doesn't deserve death threats and the like.

Last season we'd have probably lost 3-0 after going behind. This season - more belief and we fought back to draw

We weren't brilliant but we fought and got something which breeds belief in the players

I'll take that

The team is full of confidence so I'm not going to tell them to sit back and avoid a big loss

Go out there. Do your stuff and enjoy it. You can win this. It won't be easy - Liverpool are a good side but so are we this season
