Fabrizio Romano - Everton board have contacted Carlo Ancelotti. He’ll decide soon if accept or refuse this opportunity. Talks ongoing.


1.) 16 Dec 2019 15:26:24
di marzio and the guardian now also reporting that talks have been held and another meeting will be planned to see if an agreement can be made, guardian saying first set of talks were positive.

2.) 16 Dec 2019 16:42:01
sky sports now reporting he's on merseyside, we couldnt, could we?

3.) 16 Dec 2019 16:50:08
Whoa, I'm chewing me fingers off here WBlue, the nails went about half an hour ago 🤤 😲.

4.) 16 Dec 2019 17:30:22
Don't believe it from press, but if local chip shop were reporting it might have some truth.

5.) 16 Dec 2019 18:02:12
Hes in Rome? Who needs Coronation street.

6.) 16 Dec 2019 18:08:12
''Hes in Rome'' OMG do you mean we are after the Pope?

7.) 16 Dec 2019 18:19:05
I would love to believe it, but given FMs ability to get a top manager is quite poor, I can't see it happening. I did read the other day that Ancelotti thought we were below his expectations, whatever that means! I have more confidence that the brexit deal will be passed on Friday.

8.) 16 Dec 2019 18:50:44
We are after the messiah Blue hopefully he doesn't turn out to be a naughty boy ;)

9.) 16 Dec 2019 18:59:56
Carlo been seen in more places today than 'Elvis' 🚴‍♂️.

10.) 16 Dec 2019 19:29:02
Think Ancelotti would be a great manager for us but just don't see it happening can see Dunc staying till end of season then we look for a manager then we will appoint a manager in summer.



03 Dec 2019 13:41:03
marcelo gallardo's odds have fallen within the last day, reckon its an achievable option?

(i know betting odds mean absolutely nothing, if i whacked £50 on alan curbishly he'd probably end up in the running)


1.) 03 Dec 2019 15:55:58
ye right deal done great choice too.

2.) 03 Dec 2019 16:20:33
highly regarded in world football, was highly touted as replacement for valverde at barca, river plates most successful manager.



07 Aug 2019 12:06:10
talksport now saying we've bid for 30m awobi, something tells me that's a smokescreen? surely? please!?!?


{Ed002's Note - Another LW for the collection - perhaps a Richarlison replacement?}

1.) 07 Aug 2019 13:04:36
i'd hope not ed!

2.) 07 Aug 2019 13:12:32
What have you heard about Richarlison Ed? Is there any offers for him that we haven’t heard about?

3.) 07 Aug 2019 13:15:53
I can't understand a bid for Iwobi. Couldn't see Bernard or Richarlison going anywhere this season. Does nt recall make sense to me.



05 Aug 2019 13:31:08
french media stating we're about to sign right back sidibe from monaco, not sure on loan or permanent.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 14:16:19
Straight swap for Henry? Similar price tag.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 16:21:13
Heard Sidibe was 2mil for a season loan and about 13m permanent. Something about a knee injury stopping teams signing him outright.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 16:29:23
That's what's been reported. Could be another quality signing.



13 Jun 2019 15:58:59
rumours of us talking to david neres sparked back up again in brazil, actually achievable? or agent trying to drum up interest?


{Ed025's Note - a bit of both i imagine WB, we have shown interest before but a lot of top sides are looking at him as well mate, so it could end up a dog fight for his services..

1.) 13 Jun 2019 16:32:47
Would be a really good addition to the team in my opinion but as Ed says he’s quite hot property so will be tough to get. However hopefully whilst on international duty Richarlison has been telling him good things about us and as we’ve already dealt with his agents in signing Richarlison and Bernard might make the negotiating a bit easier, I know wishful thinking but here’s hoping.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 20:53:14
Neres will want European football most likely. I'd prefer Malcolm.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 22:04:17
He doesn't want European football then?

4.) 13 Jun 2019 22:52:19
I think these Moise Kean links/ rumours are a little bit of wishful thinking as well.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 00:11:10
I think we have an outside shot at Neres. The rumour mill keeps saying that we are in the lead. If we're willing to pay the most, he's a young kid and the Premier League is enough of a jump up for him for now. And, there are other Brazilians in our squad to talk up the project and get him interested. That said, I think the most likely outcome is that Ajax keeps him for another year. They'll have cashed in a couple chips after De Ligt goes and won't need to sell now, especially since they still have a strong team and CL football of their own next season.

13 Jan 2020 09:55:02
hopefully carlo spends the rest of this season trialing and testing this squad to see who fits in best where and then in august when we start again the players have got their head round his methods and he has a few of his own players brought in (similar to what brendan rogers done last year came in mid season and pushed on the next)


1.) 13 Jan 2020 11:59:09
I'd still like him to bring 2 or 3 players in this window. A RW, CM and CB.

2.) 13 Jan 2020 13:30:55
In and ideal world dentie yes, but as we all know options in jan are very tough, would you rather sign someone you're only half keen on in jan, or sign someone in the summer you are certain you want.

3.) 13 Jan 2020 15:59:59
Agree wblue, nothing to play for now. spend the rest of the season assessing what you have, and don't waste money in this window.

4.) 13 Jan 2020 16:19:28
disagree, especially with the run of next 3 fixtures i think 5-8th place is completely up for grabs if clubs want it! 6 points behind united with them going to anfield this sunday and still yet to come to goodison, all depends on if the team want to fight for a european place!

5.) 13 Jan 2020 17:38:31
Totally agree Wblue - 6th spot is still a possibility, loads to play for.
If we were to get European football with 6th (big if but still possible) we might be able to recruit even better in the summer with the lure of Thursday night football, admittedly not a big a draw as champions league but still a positive.
Plus it’d be good for the fans to hopefully have a few European games to attend.

So lots still to play for, and didn’t think I’d be saying this 4 weeks ago but here is a slim chance of a top 6 finish.

6.) 13 Jan 2020 17:38:39
Nothing to play for now?
I'd get teletext on when you get home and check the league table and maybe your maths. EVERYTHING to play for.

7.) 13 Jan 2020 17:43:24
Europe next season is still very much an option, so many clubs bunched together. I guess it will show which clubs and their players have the most desire and spirit to fight for it. I'm on the side of not buying in January, overpaying for clubs unwanted players is not going to help us really. Keep the pennies and buy smart in the summer i say.

8.) 13 Jan 2020 18:07:58
Trialing players - they have been playing week in week out. We are not 11th by chance.
No need a trial to tell me kean, Keane, Naisse, hollgate, schniderlin, Sigs, Walcott, Beni are not good enough.
Iwobi might also be in there soon enough.

Weather it’s Jan or summer we need better players.
3 in jan And 3 in summer.

9.) 13 Jan 2020 18:16:14
Take your blue glasses of boys, we are not that good, and bringing players in now won't work, I mean it hasn't in the past has it. We will do well to finish top ten based on what I have been watching. we have a very bloated squad, and the priority right now should be on sorting that out, not adding to it.

10.) 13 Jan 2020 18:19:59
Keep the money until summer, maybe a loan signing, but I would be happy if we managed to offload some players and then focus in the Summer with players coming in.

11.) 13 Jan 2020 18:37:51
Bit pessimistic that Brassington.
We’re currently 4 points off sixth place.
Carlo has managed 9pts from a possible 12.
Apart from Liverpool, Man City and Leicester the rest of the top half of the table appear to all be in disarray and struggling to string results together.
Arsenal - new manager needs to settle
spurs in transition and now lost kane to injury
Sheff Utd doing well but probably hit a bad patch at some point
Chelsea and Man Utd hit and miss.

Not blue tinted glasses just nice to have a bit of positivity for a change, less than 6 weeks ago we were all talking about relegation.

If we can keep up the momentum you never know we could get top 6.

Surely it’s better that we’re finally looking up in more ways than one!

12.) 13 Jan 2020 18:50:14
Agree Brass, bringing more players into an already bloated squad is not the answer. We are where we are for a reason. We are not very good.
As for trialing players, how many u23s have you seen this season sobs?

13.) 13 Jan 2020 18:54:34
I don't see why we should spend more in Jan unless for a special player. I believe the squad with regular rotation is capable of 6th to 8th place with luck. At the end of the season have a list of who is going and, after the euros, a list of players who we want. If players are told now they are at risk, then it is up to them to put themselves in the shop window for prospective employers. You don't get bought if you are not performing. We still need the squad to come round to Carlos style of football. You never know some might actually take to it and improve. That's my take on it anyway.

14.) 13 Jan 2020 20:25:11
Are we really up for writing off another year? I'd go get your heads checked out. Madness! 2 or 3 players are a must this window. And then we can have a proper popat a strong finish. If we manage to get in a euro spot, our summer transfer policy will be all the healthier to attract better players. 16 games left and 6 point gap and people are saying its all over and may as well sit on our hands until summer? Thankfully you don't run this club, unbelievable pessimism.

15.) 13 Jan 2020 20:45:38
Spot on toffeeapple1. The pessimism is unreal on here.

16.) 13 Jan 2020 20:55:38
The white flags are out with a third of the season left. Posters on this site never fail to impress me with their doom and gloom.

17.) 13 Jan 2020 22:27:35
Wow so some of you moan about the players giving up but look at some of your statements above! 🤦🏻‍♂️
We had 14 points from our first 15 games under Silva, we’ve gained 14 under 7 games with Dunc and now Ancelotti, is that not a reason to be optimistic? And that’s without adding any new faces!

18.) 13 Jan 2020 23:48:02
Go back twelve months and the messages on here would be a mirror image of now. Not agreeing with you guys doesn’t make me a pessimists rather a realist. We might be six points behind but it is highly unlikely that we will win all our games, while those above us lose all theirs. And don’t forget we are only seven points from the relegation zone.
Now I would love to be proved wrong, and would be more than happy to eat lots of humble pie. But I just can’t see it happening. Remember who be bought last January, hows that worked out?

19.) 14 Jan 2020 00:46:20
It's not pessimistic to advocate not signing players in Jan - the window where clubs mug off desperate clubs for hugely inflated prices. We can absolutely chase a Euro spot but not at the expense of more overpaid squad fillers who want a paycheck but don't put a shift in for us. Unless a real quality player is available then signing someone just for of it is a stupid move which will only impact what we can then spend in summer.

20.) 14 Jan 2020 08:12:24
I'm happy to leave it to CA and MB to decide whether and who we buy this month. I'd like to see a couple in to strengthen the team and to give us all a lift but if they don't see the right players then leave it until the summer
Obviously I want us to finish as high as we possibly can but I don't think it is the right time to add pressure onto the 2 of them. It feels like some of our supporters have more hot and cold mood swings than menopausal women - we're rubbish - no we should finish top 6
Don't write the season off but also don't get too optimistic. Let CA get to know the squad, let some of our injured return and let MB cull a few more of the non playing contingent and hopefully pull a couple of rabbits out of the hat
I'd absolutely love it if we finished in the European places but even if we don't I look forward to the future and a full season under CA next year

21.) 14 Jan 2020 08:41:52
we're not that bad, we're a side adjusting to a new manager, who has still grinded out 3 wins out of four in the premier league, the only loss being the reigning champions away. above us is hit and miss and if you look at the fixture list for all the teams above us and ours, if we somehow manage to win all three (west ham (A) Newcastle (H) Watford (A) ) we'd e right in the mix and potentially sat between 5th-8th
why so doom and gloom we're 6 points behind united in fifth who still have to come to goodison and travel to anfield on sunday!

22.) 14 Jan 2020 09:36:42
It's in there nature we could win every game from now and someone would still moan.
We have a significant managerial appointment and my point above already proven.
Look at our 2 last January signings not confidence inspiring in buying this time of year.

23.) 14 Jan 2020 11:29:07
Palace are paying all of Tosuns wages and paid a £1 million loan fee, if we can get a few more deals out or off the pay roll it will go a long way to Putting us in good stead for the summer.

We have way too many on decent wages that are past their best and need shipping out.

A good transfer for me would be managing to ship players out.

24.) 14 Jan 2020 11:55:29
If CA wants specific players in Jan and we can get them then why not If we can't get exactly who he wants then why not look to the loan market. We have done quite well with loans over the last couple of seasons. For those guys that think six points may not be doable the way I look at it is if we beat all the teams above us then we will gain 3 of those six points straight away. Now if you then think 3 points is too much of a gap then I can't help with that. let's be positive and get behind the boys even it we don't think they should be there. COYB.

25.) 14 Jan 2020 19:29:19
We didn't buy anyone last January did we?
Don't expect anyone this january either. Let's get our injured players back and take it from there.



10 Jan 2020 13:55:32
Some brilliant news on a rather bleak 7 days, andre gomes set to return to finch farm on monday to begin individual training. hopefully still has a part to play before we finish!


1.) 10 Jan 2020 20:55:44
Not bleak just media and a protest that every Club undergoes. Part of our Clubs fuzzy PR problem (Ed002 doesn't like that) combined with communication and executive responsibility is a vast field and one needing grasp. Our Club is not unique. Our fans need to accept/ understand the appointment of Brands and his skills (Ed002 astutely points out) . Fruition is long term. For me I am surprised at CA's acceptance of our offer but very pleased.

2.) 11 Jan 2020 08:23:30
I’d suggest any of the PR problems are historically rooted in fan behaviour. Think Big C’s post (above) about expectation is closely linked to this. The club could have dealt with things better on occasions but So could he fans. Think AC spoke well about the recent incidents in the press conference yesterday.

Great to hear Gomez is back in training. Time will tell how much the injury has affected his psyche. Let’s hope he can get back to the level we know he is capable of.

Let’s hope for a win against Brighton and a brace from Kean.

3.) 11 Jan 2020 10:10:06
Br2019-20. Well put and I agree.



19 Dec 2019 09:01:14
gutwrenching that last night, goodison best i've seen it for a while after bainesy's rocket cenk tosun what does he do! does nothing when he comes on and can't even take a spot kick! no in all seriousness gutted to be out but proud of them coming back from 2 down just a real shame they started how they did in the first half holgate continues to step up in the end carried davies through.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 10:17:25
Baines’s penalty was even worse unfortunately, thought it might just be our night with that late equaliser. Thing is though the game should have been dead and buried by then, we were lucky to not be 3-0 down. We were just not good enough and the first half was awful, just can’t do that against a top team. But I will accept we are also dealing with the worse injury crisis in recent memory.

Missed opportunity though with Leicester getting Villa, I’d have fancied that.

2.) 19 Dec 2019 10:31:52
Actually thought we did okay. Chuffed we came back, first time we have come back from 1-0 down never mind 2-0. Need to be fitter, faster and pro-active more than re-active, particularly the back line. Maybe Mr Ancelloti will sort this out PDQ, he had better on 11.5 mill a year (that is obscene) .

{Ed025's Note - you get what you pay for DFS, dont worry mate they wont be knocking on your door for a contribution.. :)

3.) 19 Dec 2019 10:47:56
i don't know even at 2-0 down first half yerry should have scored, dom also missing a chance second half we had more than enough, but totally agreed first half a large group of the eleven let duncan ferguson down.

4.) 19 Dec 2019 12:49:56
We were outplayed for large portions of the game. Leicester are a very good side and their midfield dominated the game. For every good chance we had they had 2. But that’s where we are at present. I’ll be glad to see some of our midfielders returning from injury.



16 Dec 2019 09:14:13
really good point yesterday considering the squad available. few points i'd like to bring up:

1. players stepping up, special mention DCL, holgate and mina for really stepping up past two games and leading by example, great mindset for them and new manager coming in should be impressed especially with mason yesterday

2. kean sub, harsh on the lad really bad, Everton are starting to get a reputation with these young players now for not fulfilling or even getting game time this needs to be changed.

3. iwobi getting a lot of stick, he's not a winger he's a ten doing a job for duncan out wide, works his stonks off for the team very good signing imo

4. good couple results with this side showing they can actually play football! new manager in maybe after arsenal and we go from there! COYB.


1.) 16 Dec 2019 11:15:22
Wblue - it’s frustrating that youngsters not currently getting game time - but with our current predicament is it the right time?
Us as fans can be really harsh at times and is that what these youngsters need if they fail to perform? We are in a relegation fight at the moment and in my opinion not the best time to be blooding youngsters.

Regards the Kean sub - so what? He came on and was atrocious, lost the ball, didn’t listen to instructions - should he have left him on even though wasn’t doing anything? What message does that send to him - carry on do what you want.

I’m glad he had the balls to take him off - teaches him a lesson and also sends a message to other players you’ve got to work for the team.

By your logic if we then let all our youngsters have a run out and leave them on if they are performing badly where does that leave us?

Regardless of age These guys are being paid a ridiculous amount of money to do their job and should be able to follow instructions.

I’m sure if you had a young milkman who constantly smashed your milk delivery you’d want him changed rather than letting him carry on as he’s young and learning?

2.) 16 Dec 2019 11:24:52
i didn't say we should be playing youngsters every game? i said everton are getting a bad reputation of how they are handling young players. which they are, vlasic sandro kean dcl davies kenny holgate all yet to hit the heights they should have been yet, so its not attractive to young players to come here at the moment.

3.) 16 Dec 2019 13:07:42
You're chatting bubbles mate. Vlasic is the only one I can kind of agree with. He's playing well now but it is the Russian league.

DCL, holgate and Davies get loads of game time and in my opinion are forming a real spine to the team and at the very least are great bench players. And Sandro has been poor for most teams he's played for. Kenny has gone/ been allowed to go on loan to get more game time, which is a good move for his career.

So calling Everton a bad place for young players is a ridiculous statement. If anything we are a great place for young players.

4.) 16 Dec 2019 13:56:48
you see it one way i see it another mate, we signed spains main u23 striker and ruined him, davies is the same level he was at when he first broke through. vlasic wasnt utilised properly and we've took one of europes biggest talents and hardly struck gold with him, you telling me young players around europe are going to look at the liks of vlasic lookman kean sandro's progress after being here and fancy it? if so mate i think you're the one 'chatting bubbles' behave.

5.) 16 Dec 2019 15:41:09
Well yeah if you pick 4 bad ones then you can make it look bad. To say we ruined sandro is a joke, he's not good enough. How is that Everton's fault? Davies is miles better than when he broke through.

Maybe you should look at some of the good young players to get better whilst at Everton. Stones, Lukaku, Richarlison, Rooney, DCL, Holgate, Coleman, Fellaini, Barkley. Etc.

Not every player is born superstar. A players development comes more from the effort of the player than the effort of the club. The youngsters here get a lot of chances to prove themselves if they don't that's not Everton's fault.

{Ed025's Note - im with you chris..



11 Dec 2019 09:28:37
joyce saying moshiri has personally took charge of manager hunt now and moyes is back in the frame. sigh, LET YOUR DIRECTOR OF FOOTBALL MAKE THE CHOICE JUST SIT BACK AND LET HIM WORK FOR GODS SAKE, breathe out.


1.) 11 Dec 2019 09:50:25
Totally agree, brands is employed as director of football let him pick who he feels is the right manager for us.

{Ed002's Note - That is not his forte.}

2.) 11 Dec 2019 09:52:57
leading on from this, anyone think people will slowly start to turn against farhad? i know right that he pumps all this cash in and wants what's best for the club, but this constant thing of him doing stuff himself which isn't good footballing decisions is costing us more? as fans we're fed up of a non football expert making all the decisions and he knews this, hence why he got brands in, but he's not even using him can't resist the urge to get involved.

3.) 11 Dec 2019 09:54:22
''and moyes is back in the frame. ''

Crikey there goes my appetite for lunch 🤢.

4.) 11 Dec 2019 10:29:07
Brands should have some input though ed doesn’t he pick what style of football we play and the players to fit into that and then surely a manager who plays and has worked under that type of system?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he will have input.}

5.) 11 Dec 2019 10:32:05
And Brands being reluctant to sack Silva when Moshiri wanted rid after the Norwich game.
How does that make you feel about Brands ability to make the right decision.

6.) 11 Dec 2019 10:45:43
i think it will be moyes blue.

7.) 11 Dec 2019 11:05:06
Smit - brands in my opinion has shown he’s got the ability to make right decisions, look how he’s transformed the squad since his arrival. Moved on lookman, vlasic, onyekuru, McCarthy, mirallas and Galloway to name a few and replaced them in my opinion with better players Iwobi, kean, Gbamin, Delph and sidibe. Unfortunately we haven’t seen the best of some of the new recruits yet (injury/ adjusting to league) but definitely upgrades on what he inherited.

8.) 11 Dec 2019 11:07:41
WBlue, If he would come until may then go etc. I could live with that . however he probably wants to be around for the new stadium mate, and that fills me personally with a lethal dose of melancholy .

9.) 11 Dec 2019 11:50:04
dont see the point in signing moyes mate, may aswel put duncan in until the end they'll both achieve marginally the same.

10.) 11 Dec 2019 12:19:29
Yeah mate, if DF keeps getting the points let it 'take it's own course ' so to speak, why not .

11.) 11 Dec 2019 13:07:43
duncan isn't the long term option for me, he doesn't even want it people keep missing! however if you're getting moyes then ask dunc to take interim until the end 100%.

12.) 11 Dec 2019 13:59:50
I was being optimistic as well as kind, what I like about Dunc amongst other things of course, is his honesty and lack of 'XXL ego' in terms of he doesn't put himself as a long term contender.
Very refreshing in today's game and a big positive for EFC at this crucial time.

walk before we can run mate, we need to get a set in stone style and a philosophy in place before any of these big buys you're speaking of happen, big buys don't mean wins all the time with the cost of players constantly inflating, we still need to be a cost effective club that have players as investments. (i. e only buying players that we know will have a resell value greater than the price paid)

hopefully he signs a new deal and goes out on loan this month, if not fear could be back to newcastle on a free, he's good mates with the longstaff brothers and seeing them start regularly for their boyhood team may entice him.

every single bit of business similiar to this is investigated by the premier league this is not new, don't understand why everyone is amking a big deal of it. we're ran by financially savvy men (although we don't spend well) they wouldn't have announced this deal unless they had covered every outcome of something like this popping up.

stones maybe at a price, ross no lampard has already seen through him questioning his poreffessionalism, is this someone everton needs back? also with the thing of 'walks straight into our eleven' that's not a good way of looking at things as transfers shouldn't be made sometimes because they're slightly better than what we've got. capoue is better than what we have atm, is also over 30 and not good enough for the long term, ben mee is better than what we have centre half currently, would you want to go sign him?

we're not that bad, we're a side adjusting to a new manager, who has still grinded out 3 wins out of four in the premier league, the only loss being the reigning champions away. above us is hit and miss and if you look at the fixture list for all the teams above us and ours, if we somehow manage to win all three (west ham (A) Newcastle (H) Watford (A) ) we'd e right in the mix and potentially sat between 5th-8th
why so doom and gloom we're 6 points behind united in fifth who still have to come to goodison and travel to anfield on sunday!
