Spurs man myself but the brother suppoprts the  blues. A good mate and all his family are mad Everton fans. Always like reminding the fans of Liverpool FC who the traditional Irish/Catholic club on Merseyside is (and it ain't them).

Wouldnt call myself an Everton fan but they are the English team whose results I follow due to a good friend being a supporter. Was down at Goodison for a game a couple of seasons back where they beat Arsenal 1-0, excellent atmosphere. Mon the Blues ;)

Was always an Everton fan as a kid on account of Kevin Sheedy, Graeme Sharpe, Adrian Heath and Big John Bailey. Went to Goodison as a 12 year old to watch them get beaten by Arsenal. Always remember them beating Rapid Vienna in the 1985 Cup winners Cup final. 3-1 if memory serves me correctly. Neville Southall was the best keeper in the world back in those days

Don't particularly follow soccer anymore but always keep an eye out for their results and am a fan of David Moyes.

Thats the main reason why I started supporting Everton,as Kevin Sheedy played with Ireland at the time.I got to visit Goodison for the 1st time last season,I didnt get to see a game there yet but was in Anfield the next day to see Liverpool beat us 1-0.Super experience without the result.Both clubs have a great tradition and relationship in the city and the Irish are very well respected by anybody I spoke to over there.Sure half of them are Irish in some way. David Moyes is a superb manager and will go on to bigger things, of that there is no doubt.I just wish the club could give him the funds to do it with Everton.

Would have a passing interest in Everton as most of my mates growing up were the normal Man U/ Liverpool/Arsenal fans and with me being a bit odd supported Everton, still wouldn't say 'we' when talking about them though.

loved Andy Gray, he'd of kicked his granny to score and Joe pieman Parkinson (career cruelly cut short due to injury), an integral member of the dogs of war midfield with Barry Horne.
Big Dunc scared the bejaysus out of Rio Ferdinand and the odd house breaker.

One of the best moments was Amocachie's late arrival in 95 semi final drubbing of spurs then Paul Rideouts goal in the final, was sitting with mates wearing their Manure livery, just smiled at the final whistle that day.

Yo! Mister Bo Jangles... I is here. I heard your call and fell your pain. Remember 1984... Everton 2-0 Watford FA CCup final and Elton John was their chairman and Everton banner  "Well Elton I guess that's why they call us the Blues." I shed a tear that day, with the first trophy since 1970. My favourite player since I started as a blue man over 30 years was Duncan McKensie.... magic. He was something else about 1977.
Mr Bo Jangles this is a very moving moment. I thought I was alone but as Rab C Nesbitt once said, "There is nothing quite like that feeling of meeting some poor b***** as mad as yourself."

Mr Bojangles-it's been a long day. I signed up to this to talk about the Toffees and spent the day trying to wean off the board and getting into other debates. Give us  shout as I am a genuine true blue... and hopeful today will be a 2-0 V Hull. Best day as an Everton fan I think was beating Man U inthe 1995 Cup final. Good old Paul Rideout and of course Neville Southall even tho he alwys wanted to leave the club! was a double whammy winning the cup and seeing UTD lose the final. Worst day you may not remember was repaly against West Ham in 1980 semi-final lost 2-1. I was absolutly gutted and didnt sleep that night. It was on 'Sportsnight with Coleman.' Mick Lyons etc  Lots of memories to relate... but enuff of this for today...

A week later Mr Bojangles and you started this thread that drew me into this GAA Board addiction... where are you now when we need you? big week coming up and no reason the blues can't scupper Liverpool's season with a draw on Monday and a draw and replay win in the cup next week. Any other blue men out there as I would rather reminise to be honest... like 1977 cup semi-final and 2-2 with minutes to go and was listening to it on the radio. Then goal Everton! and punched the radio and broke it... went to the TV and final score 2-2. Hamilton's goal disalowed by that mad ref Clive Thomas for handball. Was clearly his chest. Replay lost 3-0 and never forgave that b*****x. Thankfully Liverpool lost final...

We are playing quite well at the moment and we mite sneak a draw tonight.Il be pretty pissed off watching tonight as I was supposed to be at the game before it was changed to Monday nite.Im sure a win will sort me out tho.I think Arteta mite hit one tonight.

Post by: longrunsthefox on January 19, 2009, 02:10:27 PM
Bojangles my main man! My heart it soars like a hawk  :D. It is  a while since I saw 24. I have been a blue man now for over 40 years... sad but true and seen some very lean years in that time.
In February 1968 I saw Everton on The Big Match that used to be on Sunday afternoons with Jimmy the chin etc. They beat WBA 6-2 and I thought I'll follow this team. Then they were in the Cup final and lost to WBA 1-0 a few months later. Jeff Astle scored. He died  a few years ago.. mad whure used to sing at end of Fantasy football.
Anyway roll on to 2202 and I was working in Belfast and had to collect a manager of the company from the airport over from Liverpool. I told him my vague recollections of  game they beat WBA 6-2 and he was at it!!  An emotional moment:  as Rab C Nesbitt once said: "There is nothing quite ike that feeling of meeing some poor b*****d as mad as yurself."
There aren't that many of us. Aye draw tonight will do..  Do you know of any supporters clubs in the north (of Ireland that is!.)

After Monday night's glorious point against the dirties, it's part two on Sunday. Think the fat Spanish waiter will rotate, however, Stevie G and Torres will no doubt play and they are the only 2 players we are worried about. Gerrard is some player. He needs to be watched for the 90 minutes. The first sniff he got on Monday and the ball was in the net. Torres played well, but Jagielka was the best player on the park by a mile. The koppites are quarrelling amongst themselves about whose fault the equaliser was. Riera cutting it out, Benayoun fouling big Victor, the zonal marking and even Lescott blocking Hyppia to free up tiny Tim. I thought the toffees thoroughly deserved their point and if all goes well, we can take them back to Goodison for a replay in the cup. A Torres backlash is what I'm dreading after that sitter he missed, yet on the other hand, a victory is possible if Lucas, Benayoun and the reserve goalie feature and Keano fails to touch the ball more than twice like last time.

Yo! Mr Bojagles... I'd fight to midnight. I'm on a roll since you enticed me into this site. Two weeks ago said Everton 2 Hull 0 and so it came to pass. Then Monday went draw against Liverpool and what do you know... so draw tomorrow and toffees win the replay. Do you know of supporters clubs in the North I was at a meeting of one 7 years ago in Belfast in a wee pub down the town and they were sound but i felt uneasy re-all different side of the proverbial house. Norn Iron and all that. they had a quiz and near enough knew how many hairs were on Linekars head... unreal

Another comfortable draw against the dirties. Only for a goalkeeping error, think we would have won that game. Our 2 central defenders must surely have impressed Capello, they were both superb. Credit were credits due though, Gerrard was excellent again. The rotund Spanish waiter will have nightmares about zonal defending tonight. I'd be disgusted if I was koppite. That is schoolboy stuff. We need to get 2 or 3 new faces in, Castillo looked shattered after 15 minutes. 2 teenagers introduced as well. As long as we have Arteta and big Fellaini back for the replay, I think we have a great chance.

I dont know of any Everton Supporters club around TBH,not even in Dublin.We are a rare breed I think Fox.
Jags has definitely been immense for us since he signed.We bought him as a defensive midfielder I believe.Moyes has turned him into an International quality Centre half.Cappello has to give him a chance.

The game against United has been confirmed for 5:30pm Sat 31st January. This will clash with the Tyrone game at Croker, but it's a good excuse to get down to Dublin early. Should get to see the first half at least and maybe a bit of the second as well. Fagan's will be lively. United are having an injury crisis at the moment though we rarely cause them many problems.

Great result for our boys tonight. If that had of went to pens, we were out. Gosling is a youngster signed from Plymouth last year, cost us 1.5m and is a good prospect for the future. Thought him and Rodwell both done well when introduced. Koppites can have little complaint. Lucas's 1st yellow was dubious but the pool looked just as knackered as we did. Don't think they'll be that bothered about being knocked out of the cup right enough. For toffees, this is a sweet evening. Glorious in fact.....

Still don't think we'll finish higher than 6th unless the gooners or chelski go into freefall. Villa look strong at the moment.

Havent been on in a while.Was over in Liverpool 2 weeks ago with the Bro, he is a Liverpool fan so we were over for the Chelsea match.We flew in to Manchester Friday morning(half tanked from being out all nite in Dublin)and had a bus bring us to Liverpool.Its only about 40 mins down the road so we enquired about getting tickets for the Everton match on Saturday.We rang Goodison 1st thing Saturday morning and they said they had 2 left so we snapped them up and headed for Lime Street to get the train.We were in with all the Evertonians so it was brilliant to hear all the chanting and the abuse.Pity about the result.A poxy penalty but I thought we did very well.Was delighted to get to see the Toffees again.we did the tour of Goodison the next morning and it was brilliant.So much history associated with Everton, it was great to get a look at some of it.A fantastic weekend in a great city and man the Women are Unreal.we dont know what we are missing over here.
I have a feeling we could be on to something tomorrow,Im going for the Toffees to get revenge for the last league match.

Another 3 points for the blues. Lovely.... Though expected, we made very tough work out of this one. Arteta's loss cost us 2 points at Newcastle last weekend and his absence from midfield today does not bode well for the rest of the season. Big Fellaini is starting to look like a tube again and Jo was woeful for the 2nd game running. Defense is watertight which gives me room for optimism though and Saha scored an absolute peach. This player is undoubtedly a class act and if we can keep him fit until the end of the season, who knows where we'll finish. The gooners are starting to crumble. Liverpool look ripe for a freefall unless they get Torres and Gerrard fit. If United win the micky mouse tomorrow, that uefa spot goes to 6th in the league. Come on United....

What you're saying about Saha is the same thing United fans said for 4 years. Undoubtedly a good player and he'll score goals whenever he's in the team. He just won't stay fit though.

We made hard work of that today but I never doubted them.I knew a semi final spot was on the cards.I also think we are better off getting United in the Semi than in the final.They should still have more present priorities in hand in April.It is gonna be unbelievably tough the way United are playing but who knows.We mite have one or 2 lads back by then hopefully.

Yeah, that first half was as bad as we've played since the start of the season. Hoofing the ball up to Cahill and big Screech, it was far too easy for the boro. Much better thankfully in the second half. Saha again doing well for us. United was the one team I wanted to avoid as Fulham took one hell of a beating yesterday, but I suppose we've done ok against them this season. Hopefully the cup run will keep us hungary in the league as well as there's some very winnable games coming up.

I think Everton can take Utd but would rather a tighter field like Pomeroy. Is mad taking two northern teams away down to Wembley... Villa Park would have made more sense. Must be money reasons. Wouldn't get GAA doing that .. then again!

Big win for the toffees which made up for the abysmal display at the JJB back in November and last week's disgrace at Pompey. Man City must be thinking what the hell's going on with their Brazilian striker Jo as he's banging them in for the blues. In saying that though, the jury's still out. He needs to perform away from Goodison as well. Hopefully, that result'll give us confidence going into next week's big game against Villa. Arsenal look to have 4th sewn up already. What a great weekend's football in general though. As a neutral, I really enjoyed both the Liverpool and United games. Such drama, loved it.

The jury is still out on Jo and Fellaini.

Revenge on Villa next week and a repeat of the 95 final the week after would do nicely.

Can't believe this thread has existed since January as I think I started a thread last year asking was there any other Toffees on the site and got the usual smart ar*sed replies.

I too am a big Everton fan & have two brothers that support the red sh*te. I know about ten other Everton fans including the Chef in our work who is from Liverpool.
Moyes has works marvels again this season with virtually no strikers for most of the season.

As Timmy says on Toffeeweb.com the success is all based on team spirit & hard work.
I don't rate Jo at all even though he has slotted in quite a few goals in not many games.
Fellaini has got a lot better and composed as the season has went on but he needs to keep his arms down a bit when jumping for headers.

Its hard to say how the big game will go this Sunday but I'm a lot more positive after our performance away to Villa.

I predict Rooney to get sent off after 10 mins and Everton to win 4-0.

Everton 1-0 and Rooney to get sent off or to be carried off on a stretcher.Either would do lovely!

Back late last night from my first trip to Wembley Stadium. The Everton fans were immense. The atmosphere yesterday was like Elland Road for the 95 semi against the yids, which I was also lucky to be at. Tickets for the 95 final were like gold dust and I didn't make it that day, so I'll be surprised if one comes my direction this time, but here's hoping. This falls the day before Tyrone's opener against Armagh, what a mouth watering weekend. Although by no means a classic, to win a penalty shoot out is special and was very impressed with the stadium. Fair play to Jagielka, after missing a pen against Fiorentina last season, that took balls. Chelski will be a tough ask, but I can see us winning it.

Post by: Fuzzman on April 20, 2009, 02:07:21 PM
Great result but like someone said we were crap. We looked nervous and didn't do ourselves justice I thought.
Had we too much respect for Utd or had Moyes told them to play it safe from the start?

I thought two centre halves played well again as did Pienaar. I was worried Microphone head was gonna get sent off but he played quite well I thought.

When Cahill missed the 1st peno I thought, here we go again, terrible penalties but the rest were great. Even Phil Nevilles which had me worried.

How did ye get tickets for that yesterday Mr Nakata. I see the final is on the day before the Tyrone match with Armagh. I'd love to go over & try to get tickets as I've done at lots of other games including the European Championships this summer.

Did ye think it was a penalty that time? If it had been Ferdinand on Cahill I would have been looking for it.

I see Wembley are experiencing similar problems to Croker with the new pitch surface.
Wonder how much we bribed Berby Toff to miss that peno. Spurs must be laughing at the money they got for him & Keano.

Fair play to Moyesy for getting his reward for sticking with us with no money for so long.

Don't suppose there is any chance the Yak will be back next month? Hopefully Saha & Vaughan can stay fit now.
Will it be like 1995 all over again we're we win the FA cup and Tyrone make it to the AI final?

Was surprised at the amount of bluenoses flying back to Dublin last night. There must have been the guts of 100. Supporter's club in Belfast sorted me out for the semi. I don't know what the allocation for the final's going to be though. I imagine the guy's who've been to the most games throughout the season will get priority, deservedly so. But I'll be putting my name down for one in case there's a lottery. I like big Fellaini as a player, but once he got booked yesterday he bottled out of a few ariel challenges. Thought he might've been taken off earlier. United should have got a penalty, that was a stonewall. Pienaar is a class act. At 2 million quid, that's a brilliant bit of business from moyes. We're only 90 minutes away from the holy grail, but Lampard, Drogba and Essien et al will be a different propostion.

Disappointed we didn't win that game tonight. Good penalty shout and 5 other decent chances. Jo's holdup and link play has vastly improved since his first few outings, but put him in a brothel and he will not score. Cahill and Baines magnificent effort after 120 minutes on Sunday. Pienaar lively again but missed a great chance to win it for us. In saying that Drogba crashed one off the crossbar in injury time so all in all a point isn't bad.

Good win at the weekend, though Fulham will probably turn us over this Sunday. Incredibly after receiving 155 tickets for the semi-final the supporters club received none for the final. What a disaster. In saying that even if we did get 50 or so tickets, I would have been well down the pecking order, but it's still depressing. I believe every supporters club are in the same position. Of course I could get cheap flights to London and chance my arm with the touts. 200-300 sheets ought to do it. However, Tyrone are playing Armagh in Clones the following day so It's looking increasingly like a boozer in Belfast for the cup final. Nightmare......

I just hope we don't let the occasion get to us. We could cack our pants and get steamrolled by Chelsea, but I have a feeling that we're playing our best football of the season right when at matters. That was the first time we beat Fulham at theirs since 1966 and we all know who won the FA Cup that year, so that's a good omen for us. We gave them a right good tonking last weekend as well. Team selection is fairly much a sure thing. The only decision Moyes needs to make is whether King Louis starts or is sprung from the bench, in which case young Rodwell will get the nod. Really looking forward to it. Toffees playing in blue and toffees to win 1-0.

Boojangles and Nakita - hands across the board to fellow Toffee men now that last night's sideshow is over. Two great teams stopped United's delusions of four trophies, Everton and our dear friends Barcelona. Am also delighted for, 'Once a blue or red or wherever I might find glory' Rooney.
I have to go with both of you on that prediction 1-0 and if I get it right this time will give up the day job.

I just love the Blues!

Drat I would have loved to have went to that but I'm gonna be watching it up in Portrush as going out sea fishing afterwards at 5.30.

Will be back in Belfast later that night though so I'll look out for the Chang Jersies.

Do we have some clause in Rooney's contract that we get a million every time they won the CL?

On Everton forums, there's real positive feedback about this young Derry center half. He's only 17 I think and all the talk is that he's definitely future first team material. Moyes obviously likes the look of him and hopes he'll play a full season for the reserves or possibly even half a season out on loan.

As for the Naughton debacle, very typical of Everton and their recent pre-season form. The season we were decisive in the market and got our players in at the start of the window, we finished 4th. It's not rocket science. If we get anybody in it'll be a week or so before the kick-off (possibly a day or so) and the integration will be non existent.

I despair, I really do. Though I've still booked my flights and got my ticket for the opener against Arsenal.

Senderos please say it aint so. Probably get over 20M for Joleon but nobody to replace him.Still we'v got Jags and Yobo. Baines on the left and Id be trying Jacobsen alot more on the right.

No. Delph's on his way to Villa. We were linked with him though this last few months. Jacobsen signed for Blackburn as well, they offered him a 2 year deal. Right back and centre-half are of major concern. Jags isn't back until November. If we get Defour from Liege I might be a wee bit happier, but by all accounts the dirties from across the park are interested as well. That would kill me altogether if they got him.

If the player's heart isn't in it, what's the point keeping him? Moyes is probably upset that it's City and that the money will be a factor. I think Lescott lives in Manchester as well.

The Lescott issue is a killer. Everton appear to be saying the media have got this wrong, he hasn't asked for a transfer. If he has, I think Moyes is f**ked off that he's left it until 10 days before kick-off, which is completely out of order. It's a strange one. What's the point keeping a player who's asked to move. The fans will go nuts, they'll be on his back. His performances will be impacted. If he has asked to go, he has to go and Moyes needs to get as much moolah as possible. We rely on unity and team spirit as a major factor in why we've been competitive over the last few years. Defour is a class act and if the fat Spanish waiter gets him in as a squad player, that'll sicken my happiness. He'd walk onto our team.

Would Everton not be better letting Lescott go for say £15m + Richard Dunne. A heap of money and a better defender? Or did Dunne dirty his bib when he was at Goodison?

Don't watch Everton all that often, but I think Lescott is way over-rated because he gets the odd goal. Jagielka carries him anytime I have seen them.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread

Lescott has been consistently brilliant for Everton over the last 3 years in 2 different positions, winning player's player of the season 2 years in a row. This will be a massive loss to the toffees if it happens. Dicky didn't dirty his bib at all. He left Goodison with everybody's best wishes. I just think Moyes fancied the other younger guy Onuha. I simply have no idea how this is going to pan out. I really hate pre-season with a passion.

Post by: Mr. Nakata on August 11, 2009, 01:24:51 PM
Martin O'Neill stood firm over Barry last summer and he had a decent season. Then he sold this summer because he was going into his final year of contract. Jagielka is out until November, Lescott has 4 years on his contract. We simply can't let him go. Moyes will make him run the gauntlet on Saturday. I'm heading over myself for the opener. Wonder will the fans give him the treatment. Moyes looks as though he's taking a stance here and will not back down. Player power being exercised 4 days before kick-off. It's an intricate game of brinkmanship. I think Moyes will hold firm.

A decent team, but not one that'll have gooners quaking in their boots. I can see us getting something from this game so long as the atmosphere is hostile and the team get stuck in. We all know they don't like it up them, but at the same time they have players of real quality. Draw for me.

Replace Hibbert with Neville and put Osman in Midfield.

Post by: Archie Mitchell on August 14, 2009, 09:11:29 PM
I sorta admired Moyes for his stance on Lescott. But since Lescott has handed in a transfer request Moyes is now acting like a spoilt child. At the end of the day Lescott wants to leave or else he wouldn't have handed in a transfer request. He felt this was the only way to secure the move to City. City knew this as after the first 2 bids were rejected, what was the point in bidding again and again with bids being rejected unless they knew the player wanted to leave. It's a similar situation to the John Terry transfer saga. City bid for him, Chelsea rejected it. City were waiting on Terry to request a move, but he didn't and he confirmed his intention to stay with Chelsea. Lescott hasn't done this, and if he wants to move, he wants to move. Good deal for both player and club. Not much difference when Moyes broke his 5 year contract with Preston, only 1 year in to it to become Everton manager.

They have "twisted the head" of our player and the media have lapped up every minute of it, with widespread coverage of his proposed 100 grand a week wages.  They won't take no for an answer. I think he's a brilliant player, though I imagine most supporters of other clubs would consider him average. We have one other fit centre half, with the possibility of Senderos coming in as cover. If he was sold we'd be in the shite big time. There's no way Moyes will sell now. City can go fcuk off. Upson's already angling for the money.

City had Lescott on their list of targets and bid for him. Usually the first bid fails so they went in with a second bid. This also failed. City knew there was no point in bidding if it was going to be rejected. City knew Lescott had to force the issue. Then it was Everton that let the world know that they had rejected 2 offers from City for him. Cue the transfer request from Lescott. Im sure Lescott has been aware of potential interest, but as much rumours doing the rounds you never know what to believe. But when Everton admitted that they had rejected 2 offers for him, this is when they alerted Lescott to have his "head twisted" by the City move.

As you said yourself below, if a player doesn't want to be there, then why keep him.

In the last pre-season game before kick-off, 7 days ago, he played the full 90 minutes, was cheered every touch and the fans were chanting his name at the final whistle. Four days later he hands in a transfer request. My knee jerk reaction was sell him immediately for the highest price. But why give in to the aggression of the bully boys. I think Moyes principled stance today and throughout the last month has reinforced fans belief that keeping the player is the right decision for Everton. Yes, I thought the fans would go mental, give him some serious stick, but now I think they'll get behind him. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

I've been going to Goodison Park for 18 years and that yesterday was the worst I can remember. f**king shambolic. Lescott was on a different planet. The Arsenal fans were in their element. Hibbert is a joke, possibly just above pub league standard. Moyes continues to play him. Both centre halfs were shocking, Osman isn't good enough, Jo looked lost. Saha should've got the nod. I along with thousands of other Evertonians stayed to the death and applauded the gooners off the park. They were good, but I've seen them play better. Thank Christ Liverpool is a great town to get drunk in. I had a glorious evening. When you're still skulling peroni at 3:30am things are not too bad. I'm hungover and disillusioned. Pienaar continues to impress. Moyes surely has to take the money and move on. Arteta, Jagielka and the Yak, we need you back, and soon....

Everton are still a decent side (disregarding Saturday), but on the evidence of the first weekend of the league, then they could be one of the real big losers to the recent spending sprees of both  Man City and Spurs. Even with last year's squad fully fit it looks mighty difficult for them to qualify for Europe through the league, and Man City must be hot favorites in the cups given they have no European distractions of their own this season. Mid table obscurity I think for the Toffees this season. They haven't got the cash to spend and even with the Lescott money (which is inevitable) they won't be able to go and buy the kind of quality that will be needed to secure top 6. It's a pity because Moyes has gone about his job very well... I think the money factor will be the key thing and will probably be the reason why Moyes eventually leaves.

Moyes, needs to get £20M out of City and quickly get in a decent right back, centre back and holding midfielder. Yobo needs someone beside him telling him what to do as his decision making is and always was terrible. Get Jagielka and Arteta to Lourdes then Fatima ASAP ASAP as Everton are fucked without them.

I see we're being linked to a 9m deal for a Russian winger. Bystrov from Spartak Moscow, flying machine by all accounts. At last some positive news. I think we need about 5 players. Hopefully we'll get the Agrentine from Valencia on loan as well, but these work permit applications are a load of balls. 2 new centre halfs required as well. The manager will have a busy fortnight.

Utility Phil to play centre half tonight, him or Rodwell. Ominous. Moyes holding out for 25-30m for Lescott, now that will be some deal for us if it comes off. Ludicrous moolah. I see we're being linked to a 9m deal for a Russian winger. Bystrov from Spartak Moscow, flying machine by all accounts. At last some positive news. I think we need about 5 players. Hopefully we'll get the Agrentine from Valencia on loan as well, but these work permit applications are a load of balls. 2 new centre halfs required as well. The manager will have a busy fortnight.

Would you take Dunne back as part of the Man City/Lescott deal?

Would he want to come back??

Dicky Dunne would be welcomed back with open arms. He's only 29 and it's a world cup year, he need's regular football. He'd walk onto the toffee team until Jagielka returns at Christmas. Don't think it'll happen though. Sparky won't let him go, nor do I think he wants to miss out on the cash bonanza and realistically, city will be competitive this year.

I thought it would be on FIVE or ITV4 or something but can't see it in the papers or any website bar Everton TV.
We'd need to get our act together as can't see a 0-0 or worse being enough for us to go through.

What's this Argentine lad like?

At least the red sh*te & Man Poo have lost games already as well.
Spurs could be pushing us big time this year as well as Man Sh*tty.

Not true. Sky Sports picked up Hughes wrong in his press conference. He said in the past when deals were dragging on, they were willing to walk away, and will do so again. He didn't say this was the case for the Lescott saga.

Also Saha has come out in support of Lescott and what has happened. He's maybe feeling in same boat after Everton rejected an offer for him from a Turkish club.

Post by: Mr. Nakata on August 21, 2009, 01:40:21 PM
I think it's only a matter of time. Moyes is trying to get 4 players in berfore the window shuts. 2 of those would need to be centre halfs. Saha during the summer has said he's happy and determined to stay at Everton and score more goals. Jagielka and Cahill have also come out to defend Lescott in the last few weeks. They realise he's in a messy situation and they are mates afterall.

Good 4-0 win last night. Rodwell is a great prospect. Saha has a full pre-season behind him and it shows. He looks sharp.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Mr. Nakata on August 25, 2009, 01:32:43 PM
24m for Lescott, not bad. A new Russian winger signed this morning for 9m. Argentine loan signing almost in the bag. Yakubu lining out for the reserves tonight. Things are starting to pick up at last. Distin being heavily linked in the Scouse Echo this morning. 5m seems a wee bit steep for a 31 year old, but he is a good centre half. Could do with another for cover as well.
Saha's penalty miss compounded a truly horrific Sunday after Tyrone's massacre at Croker. We need to pick up 3 points at the weekend, badly.

3 points on the board at last. We are severly lacking in confidence though. Yet again, another frustrating summer transfer window. I'm expecting at least 2 more in before the window shuts. Heitinga and one other. Looks as though the Argy will now be staying at Valencia, which is a bummer, as he looks decent.

Pointing a finger at Moyes would do f**k all. Without the man we would have been relegated long ago. Everton need everybody back.Jags,Arteta,Neville,Anichebe,Billy are all big losses. No club could do without their main Centre Half and most creative midfielder for as long as we have had to do.

Very depressing result on Sunday against Birmingham. We've only won 2 home games out of 9 this season. That's relegation material. Away to Sunderland, home to Burnley over the festive season. 4 points at least required from those 2 fixtures. Let's hope Landon Donovan can add something to the attack in the new year. Moyes needs to get some quality loan signings in there sharpish. I can't even enjoy Liverpool's demise at the minute because we're so shit.....

Post by: Mr. Nakata on February 04, 2010, 08:43:47 PM
Well from my last post on the 22nd of December, it appears I was feeling a touch morbid at the way things were going for the toffees. However, bar the FA cup exit, January has been excellent. Big screech is starting to look like a quality midfielder, Cahill is returning to form and the yank Donovan can certainly play. With the red shite up next, I'd be happy with a point if truth be told, even though we're playing well and they aren't, it is a derby and if they show as much enthusiasm as they did against the always spineless yids, a point would be an excellent return. I hope our good form continues and as an optimist, 6th or 7th in the league is about as high as I think we can go. Kenwright needs to get his arse in gear and get the contracts sorted for Pienaar & Saha pronto, as any number of clubs will be after those two come summer time.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: boojangles on February 04, 2010, 09:58:22 PM
Definitely right about signing the contracts for Pienaar and Saha. Pienaar has been some find hasn't he. With the World Cup coming up expect his price tag to soar even more.
I'm still reserving judgement on Screech but he has definitely improved. Good to hear that Donovan and Senderos are available for Europa League. No reason why we can't beat Sporting Lisbon.
To think some people were questioning David Moyes position a while back. The man is without doubt in the Top 3 Managers in the Premiership.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Mr. Nakata on May 10, 2010, 09:18:44 PM
Well I'm glad to see the back of this season, even though we finished with only 2 defeats in our last 24 games, all the damage was done early doors. The disruption caused by the Lescott debacle, the humiliation on the opening day of the season, the injuries to key personnel, around November time I really was starting to think it was back to the dark old days of fighting relegation. With 22 points from the first 19 games and 39 coming from the last 19, it's definitely a case of "what if"? However, I am extremely optimistic for next season. Arteta will be fresh for the start of 2010/11, although the way Spanish midfielders are falling by the wayside, he may yet get his chance with the national team. Unlikely though. Saha has signed a new contract, Cahill is on the verge of signing for 4 years, Bilyaletdinov will surely improve with an entended break after coming to England half way through the Russian season and then playing the whole season with the blues. Before Fellaini got injured he was strating to look like a proper player, bossing games and the holding role suited him perfectly. Johnny Heitinga looked like a clown during the first 3 or 4 games he played in, I thought Moyes had wasted 6m on a buffoon. How wrong I was. He has been immense in a number of different positions and I'm looking forward to watching him in the world cup. Pienaar was player of the season and deservedly so. A player purchased for 2m, if he doesn't sign a new contract I fully expect Everton to make 6 or 7 times that by selling him on as he approaches his last year. I'd be distraught though. He really is a class act. As for future signings, in Moyes we trust. Whatever money is made available has to spent wisely, though realistically, keeping hold of Pienaar and Rodwell is more important at this stage. Overall, I'm glad the all-Ireland series is upon us and hope the red hands can keep my mind occupied through the summer.

Having said that he is still too conservative. Sticks with Hibbert when Coleman is bursting to get in.

1 striker up front at home to Wolves/Newcastle. early days yet but Beckford already looks a gamble that has'nt paid off. New guy Gueye should be given a chance up front, even Baxter maybe.

If Moyes has had enough who would take over O'Neill? Can't see it.

Sickening start to the season again. Deservedly booed off on Saturday after being outplayed and outfought at home to the geordies. Last night was a case of peppering the goal without being able to score. Yakubu and Beckford couldn't score in a house of ill repute. 2 away games then international break followed by the koppites at home. Toffees really are in disarray. We need a win and quick.....
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: boojangles on September 22, 2010, 05:09:34 PM
Wouldn't take much to turn it around AGAIN.
Coleman has to come in for Hibbert- come on David, are ya blind??
Saha back from injury although support for him looks weak. Push Cahill back up with him.
Maybe try Heitinga back at centre-half with Jags because Distin is not the answer.
Screech TBH has been a bad signing. He's in his 3rd season and he's still as raw as the day he came IMO. 15m?? Not one of David Moyes best days.

                                Howard

Coleman    Heitinga        Jags              Baines

Osman/Billy    Arteta     Screech          Pienaar

Cahill
Jagielka

Average players me hole.
Moyes has been a revelation as Everton manager and arguably in the top 5 Premiership managers of the last decade. Some of his signings have been unreal and he has turned some good footballers into outstanding ones.
He may have taken Everton as far as they can go but the only reason for that is becasue he does not have the money.Plain and Simple. Nothing to do with being dour or negative.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Lawrence of Knockbride on September 24, 2010, 08:05:58 PM
I disagree with you on your second point. It's safety first for Moyes as far as I'm concerned. He's never had a winger in his team that I can remember, always square pegs in round holes-Osman,Billy what's his name and Pienaar playing out of position. He even had Arteta out there for a while. The amount of long balls they play takes away from the ability in the midfield and I just think he's negative. With regard to the term "average" what I meant was he's good at spotting players playing below what they're capable of, getting them in and making them better such as the ones you've listed. But much like O'Neill was at Celtic it's impossible to know how he'd manage with players of the next level because of the cash issue.

Well I'm not going to gloat too much. Liverpool are shite at the minute. That is plain to see and koppites will agree with that analysis no doubt. We deserved to win that game today and I thought we won it comfortably. As an Evertonian we all thought this was as good a time as any to square up to the neighbours and the bookies had us as favourites which was fair enough. I was really pleased to see Distin put in an excellent display at the back as he was getting a bit of stick deservedly in fairness for a few patchy performances and the Yak was awesome for the first 55 minutes after which the game was effectively won. Young Coleman looks a player. Still raw but it can only be a matter of time before he gets that first cap. Beers are tasting supremely beautiful. Well done blue boys....

Take Cahill out of this team and we'd be shit. Saha couldn't score in a brothel. Yak is hit and miss, more often miss and Beckford has to play as part of a strike pair which Moyes won't play. If we get a couple of million for Pienaar in January and 3 or 4 million for Heitinga, it needs to be spent wiseley. Landon Donovan will be welcomed back with open arms for another loan stint although Coleman is holding his own on the right wing. Two home games up next, Bolton and Gooners, 4 points minimum required.

One swallow doesn't make a summer, but I certainly enjoyed that game last night. We have the hoodoo over city. Our away form and form against the top teams has been pretty good. It's obvious that when teams come onto us we can hurt them but when we are expected to hump teams like wigan and wolves who sit deep, we can't put them away. Moyes needs to sort that out sooner rather than later. Hopefully, that performance is a turning point. If we get Donovan in for 3 months and a new stricker, we should improve. Home form has been shocking.

really think moyes needs to offload some players to raise funds to strenghten the team. so much for this being our best squad in a generation. i would def look to get some money for pienaar in jan, shouldnt be allowed to leave for nothing in the summer. heitinga [hasnt looked interested this season] saha [while we still might get something for him] the yak [looks like he couldnt hit barn door]. we def need someone up front and another centre half and getting rid of some of the above wouldnt weaken the squad it would hopefully free up funds to get someone in.

Sorry Boojangles meant to type four full-backs.
Vintage Moyes meaning he couldn't send out an attacking team away from home to save his life. He'll be without Cahill for a month odd and his tactics seem involve bringing on two attacking players in the last 5 minutes, including injury time.
He's done all he can IMO and given the reported money he's on I reckon it's time for a change.

Agreed. After a torrid draw against West Ham and defeat to Stoke, that was desperately needed. Saha was shooting on sight which was great to see. Coleman was rampant on the wing as well. Overall a gutsy performance and well deserved 3 points. We need to follow that up with a win in the cup before the trip across Stanley Park.

I think I'd go with Anichebe along side Saha rather than Beckford as he's a bit more physical. Neither are prolific in front of goal though.

Hibbert was in his best position last night.

Happy enough with that point yesterday after getting battered in the 1st 45 minutes. We should've been 3-0 down at half time. Torres was rampant. Distin kept letting the ball bounce and was giving the Spaniard acres of space. We were excellent in the second half though. Moyes must have gave the players some ballocking at half time. We need to hold onto Fellaini. He is a colossus. 15m seems like a snip now. It won't be long before Chelski and the rich clubs come knocking. With Yak gone and Pienaar on his way, Moyes better have a couple of players lined up.

I wouldn't be too hopeful of us bringing anyone in.

There seems to be no money available even with the £3m coming for Pienaar.

Only players I have seen linked are Jennings ?? from Tranmere and Eagles from Burnley ( who wasn't bad last year in fairness).

Maybe we can pull off a loan deal or two. Keane would be ideal. Carew even if he is still at odds with Houllier.

There is a young lad in the youth team scoring for fun Hallum Hope I think, may be worth having on the bench for a few games.

No offence but Keane is pish and has been for quite a while now. Everton don't need another striker who converts one in ten chances.
Moyes seems to do rightly prowling the lower leagues and I still think there's hope for Beckford to pick up his game even though he's well into his mid 20's.

We would have been safer with an old head who could go straight into the 1st team.

It is depressing the state of our financial affairs. It is 1 thing having less funds than the so called big 4 but we are worse off than Stoke, Sunderland, Villa etc.

My friends think I'm mad but I honesty think Moyes has all the qualities to manage united but I remember Ferguson saying months ago that he feels a very experienced manager is needed to lead a club like man united, which may indicate that Moyes is too young for the role. I really feel sorry for him at Everton. He looked like a beaten man at the end of the game this evening.

I think we struggle to break teams down especially at Goodison. Moyes likes to be set up defensively and grind out wins.

Disappointing result but not surprising.

Didn't see the game but yet again we didn't seem to create many clear cut chances.

Moyes faces a big test this summer. There is no money to spend and wage bill needs to be reduced.

In hindsight we should have sold Arteta last summer rather than giving him a bigger contract. We were supposedly after Charlie Adam last summer for £3/£4m but that boat has sailed.

Sell: Mucha,Heitinga,Yobo, Yakubu, Vaughan, Billyiatenov and Fellaini ( great player but either him or Rodwell are most saleable assets).

Bring in £30m/£35m and bring down wage bill substantially.

Buy: This is where Moyes will have to earn his corn. There are bargains in the Championship, it is just a matter of finding them.

In midfield Jamie O'Hara or James McCarthy would be a good replacement for Fellaini.

Duffy needs to be given a chance in defence.

Brilliant strike by Billyateniv, ne of the best strikers of a ball in the pl, doesnt do it enough.

In saying that City should've been out of sight by half time, we couldn't get a kick. A good old half time team talk seemed to do the trick as we bossed the second half. That's 2 years on the trot now we've kept our best form for the run in. Not good enough. Looking forward to seeing the back of this season and getting some new blood in early doors. Heres hoping.....

Probably a case that there are no other strikers available. Moyes has done an unbelievable job considering the lack of mney. Our form since Christmas is CL form ( as it was lasty year) yet the media largely ignore Everton ( not sexy enough).

Our wage bill is too high though. If we could get shot of Yakubu, Yobo, Bilyatenov and Hetinga and Moyes had £20/£25 m to spend I am confident we could strengthen the team/squad for next season with players from the Championship.

Some good players coming through the youth team also ( who give Liverpool a 4-0 hiding a few weeks ago)

Having seen Fellaini playing first hand on several occasions I have to say that for genuine technique and ability only Arteta comes close in that team at the minute. Perhaps if he stays injury free and Moyes plays him in the position he was bought to fill (Centre midfield) then you might get to see just what he's capable of.

So what about Beckford, will he start putting away the ones he should do as well as the odd spectacular one? He seems to get in decent enough positions.

I'd keep him over Anichebe but you'd still like to see a decent striker come target man for the likes of Saha and Beckford to play off although Moyes doesn't like two up front too much

A right back is a must as I think Hibbert is a liability.

Post by: Fuzzman on May 23, 2011, 02:19:54 PM
Yeah its amazing we only ended up 4 points behind the red sh*te and all the money they waste every season.

I can't make my mind up about Beckford. I think he's got huge potential and is a natural goalscorer but he needs good supply and I think he hates having to graft for the team or to be the sole attacker to win headers from long balls.

10 goals isn't bad for his 1st season considering Moyes didn't play him the half the time.
I think he'd be great alongside Saha if he could stay fit for 3 matches in a row.

I fear Fellaini will move in with pressure from his da, knowing he's not gonna win any medals with us. Utd, Shitty & Chelski could all come knocking and even the temptation of higher wages will probably be enough to tempt him away.

I really would love to see the back on Anichebe as he does my head in. For the size and strength of the man he's always falling over and looking for frees & penos. He always looks frustrated and never seems to do the simple thing. I presume the Yak will not return and we'll get peanuts for him. Feed the Yak and he will get fat

Ossie was brutal for the 1st half of the season but yes he turned it around and seemed to be our most creative player this season. I see Pienaar hasn't done that great at Spurs yet. Arteta was crap all year in my eyes and if he had been wearing a Hibbert shirt you'd be calling for his head. Those crap corners he always seems to hit are so poor time & time again.

I hope Coleman can kick on again next season and not do the usual of not fulfil his potential after a great 1st season in the 1st team.

I can't really see us getting back in the Top 4 again unless we get a billionaire which even Moyes isnt sure that would benefit us or him. I suppose if he had millions to spend he'd have a new kind of pressure.

Hopefully Tyrone now can make me have an exciting summer. Haha

Not sure Moyes would be any good with £40/£50m to spend, has signed a few stinkers Billy, Koldrup. Seems to be better bringing in players for £5m or less, players who are hungry, Pienaar,Cahill, Jagielka, Baines etc.

If I had to sell Felliani or Rodwell to raise funds I would keep Rodwell. With £15m from this and selling on of Yobo, Yakubu, Vaughan we could bring in 2/3 quaility players (along with 1 or 2 from the youth team which won the league this year) although worringly I saw us linked with DJ Campbell today ::).

Moyes seems to have a love/hate relationship with Beckford. Seems to miss easy chances and score hard ones. I don't think he will ever be 1st choice but is a good sub/squad player.Certainly looks better value than Torres :D

Post by: johnneycool on May 24, 2011, 11:00:54 AM
Moyes has a habit of keeping young players on the bench for a good bit, ala Rooney, who'd be used sparingly when everyone else wanted to see him start. I think he did the same with Rodwell this year, maybe to keep the lads feet on the ground after a bit too much hullabaloo the previous year. If he stays I think he'll get a lot more game time next season if he's still there and I hope he is.

DJ Campbell, I always had him down as a kick and run merchant!

Post by: Mr. Nakata on May 24, 2011, 01:24:48 PM
Realistically, if moyes needs to sell to buy, the only players coveted by other clubs would be baines, jagielka, fellaini and rodwell. Out of those 4 I would be devastated at the loss of baines, fellaini or jagielka. If united or city gave us 20m for rodwell I would take it now. This lad has something about him, he definitely has potential but I've seen him many times let entire games pass him by. He's prone to very basic errors, I rememeber one very poor pass to Distin cost us a goal in a crucial Europa game at Goodison. Maybe I'm being harsh, but 20m is big moulah for the toffees. Maybe chicken feed for the top 4 and the dirties, but big dough for us. Fellaini is a class act, pure and simple, he will only get better. Jags is an old fashioned warrior at the back and Baines was the best left back in the league this year.

Need to play Beckford on a regular basis, only way he is going to learn.

Arteta/baines/Cahill/beckford/jagielka and howard are the basis on which Moyes has to build everton around.  Even know it is only by wheeling and dealing

Seen that this morning. Klose could have 1-2 good seasons left in him. Ba looked impressive from what I seen of him but may cost too much- wages or transfer fee. Shane Long was outstanding this season but its taking a gamble. But I would love to see him come and make it.

miroslav klose's wage demands would probably rule us out of signing him. moyes will hopefully be able to use the cash from the sales of vaughan and hopefully billy, yobo and the yak to bolster the attack. think we also need a centre half. we were lucky distin and jags stayed relatively fit for the majority of last season.

With Spurs and Juventus in for Klose we couldn't compete in terms of wages. Although he looks good for Germany he hasn;t scored many goals at club level in the past few years. Long would be a gamble but he has the work ethic Moyes likes and could play up front on his own.Craig Bellamy might be a good bet even on a 1 year loan.

We also need a left winger and a right back. Looking at our squad it's not bad. 3 or 4 good additions and we will in and around the top 6 again next year.

I think Moyes didn't play Billy enough to be honest.

15m for Felliani was too much money for a club like everton, I think they don't get enough out of him.

could he play Coleman at right back and look out for a right winger.

Agfree need cover for centre of defence.

Billy is one of the best strikers of a ball in the PL. He has only scored about 10 goals but most have been beauties. Don't think he is up to the physicality of the PL though.

At the moment he has potential. I think he'll be a superstar in 2 or 3 years. The fact that he can play in midfield or cenrtal defense is a positive, but Evertonians have yet to see the best from him. I think the next 2 seasons will see him grow physically which is crucial in the premier league. The question is will united/chelski/city/yids think he is worth a gamble at 15m at 20 years old when he could be worth double that at 22. I think he'll stay where he is.

The thing I hate about it all is we always have to wait to the end of the window before we get anyone and usually then its just loans or poor bargain basements.

We should get some descent money for Yobo as he's still a good CH but the Yak has a bad lazy attitude and will probably end up coming back to us to mess up our season.

Tough start again alright but its to be expected every year now.

We will be lucky to get £6m for these 2 but at least we will get their high wages off the books. Stories about the likes of Klose have no basis in reality as we have not got £60/£70k to spend on wages per week.

We are really aiming for top 6 as we have no hope of breaking top 4.

How realistic are your hopes of making 5th or 6th? (Serious question)

In other words, if MU, Chelsea, Man City & Arse are discounted, which of Spurs (5th) or Liverpool (6th) do you think you can displace?

I'm not dismissing Everton's hopes etc, but last season you finished four points behind Liverpool, who had a truly terrible start, but have since "steadied the ship" under Dalglish, and spent bundles on new players etc.

And despite taking four points off Spurs in head-to-head games, you still finished 8 points behind them, which is a very big deficit to make up.

Indeed, if you look over your shoulder, you weren't that far ahead of Fulham (5 pts), Villa (6 pts) and Sunderland (7pts). Seeing as they have made sound managerial changes, and/or are spending big money this Summer, I'd say they'll each be hoping to overtake Everton next season.

We were closer to Liverpool at the end than Fulham were to us after another shocking start. If we had avoided 2 or 3 stupid results against the like of Bolton, West Brom, Wolves last season we would have been up with Spurs.

No, the point I was making was that due to the Board and managerial upheaval at Anfield, L'pool's dreadful start to the season was exceptional.
Whereas EFC's bad start (Moyes & Kenwright's 9th in tandem) was, er, normal... ;)

We were closer to Liverpool at the end than Fulham were to us after another shocking start.
Actually, I think you'll find Fulham's start to the season was at least as bad as EFC's.

If we had avoided 2 or 3 stupid results against the like of Bolton, West Brom, Wolves last season we would have been up with Spurs.
EFC gained 6 points from their six games against WBA (finished 11th), Bolton (14th) and Wolves (17th), which is two more points than Spurs gained from their six games eg against Wigan (16th), Blackpool (19th) and WHU (20th).

In other words, anyone can cherrypick individual results and claim "If only", but in the end, the Table doesn't lie. And eight points is a big deficit to make up on another team, especially when you've taken four points against them in head-to-head games.

I agree that we could easily finish 9th or 10th but we could also easily finish 5th if we start well.
If you start well, finish well and play well in between.

It's possible, but it would require a big improvement over last season, when there is no sign whatever of acquiring the better players which are usually necessary for such an improvement.

Whereas both Liverpool (esp) and Spurs (possibly) are likely to improve their squad over last season.

I've nothing against EFC, they've a fine manager, an honourable Chairman and good support etc. But in the end, the top teams are the ones with the top players, and the top players go to the clubs which pay them the most money. On which point, EFC simply cannot compete.

Therefore unless some of last season's top six suffer a crisis, it seems to me that the very best EFC can hope to achieve is 7th i.e. "Best of the rest".

Our form since Christmas the last 2 years is top 4 form. If we could make a good start 6th would be possible.

I agree we are probably aiming to be best of the rest again which is not bad considering the amount of money the likes of Villa and Sunderland spend.

Spurs showed serious signs of slippage last season after Christmas and don't seem to have any more money than us to spend this year and dare I say it if Arsenal lose the likes of Nasri and Fabregas are not replaced they could fall out of the top 4.

And Arsenal thought they had problems. This is frightening stuff. Don't kill us this season! WTF! This came on the radio this evening and I said to my wife what if Everton went out of business. "You could just support someone else".

Something doesn't add up here, We are spending 0 in transfers over the last few years, training ground sold, decent sponsorship, regular top 8 finishes, TV money, average att over 35k and average wages spent in PL terms.

Other clubs can spend more than they earn so why is our debt so much worse?

It would appear a mixture of Everton supporter groups called "The Blue Union" got a meeting with Kenwright with the help of Deggsy Hatton and taped the meeting on the sly, releasing the content in it's entirety to the media, thus humiliating Kenwright. There's now talk of legal action. If it wasn't so farcical, it might even be funny. Hope Jagielka's not sold this week. What a f**king nightmare....

Everton definitely used up their luck for the whole season yesterday. Getting to 40 points has to be the immediate aim for this season, if we went down it would be a Leeds Utd situation.

Get the feeling this will be Moyes last year, like the boy in Holland with his finger in the dyke (careful now) he has probably had enough at this stage and deserves his chance at a well run club. Where that leaves us I don't know.

3 days to go before the window slams shut. If we can hold onto our best players and get a striker in on loan I'll be happy enough. If we also get a wide man I'll be ecstatic. If we get no striker at all I will be disgusted. The thought of watching Anichebe as a lone striker this season is painful. Add to that Beckford and Saha occasionally. Will we get enough goals? Will we bollix... I have a feeling this season will be horrible.

He was good last year in fairness but he is getting on a bit. Is Heitinga not getting £50k aweek, surely he could fill in or even Rodwell who may suit CB more than midfield.

There is a lad in reserves Hallam Hope who is 18 and has scored goals all levels including England U18s. Maybe Moyes will throw him in, can't be worse than Anichebe.

The Latin influence is bringing diving and cheating more to the fore in the Premiership. Suarez got Rodwell sent off, simple as. He's a superb footballer but he's a cheat. Officials have to start doing something about it or (as Moyes alluded to in the post match interview) clubs will have to start coaching young players differently.
David Silva is another who rolls around the place with minimal contact.

Joke of a decision all right but it is increasingly hard for Everton to compete. Last week City brought on 2 £20m players who scored, yesterday Liverpool had Bellamy,Gerrard and Henderson. Against teams pushing for top 6 we will compete if things go well for us on the day in terms of referres etc, it is beating the other teams we should be looking at. A top 10 finsih this year after the summer we had would be a decent season.

Another poor start to a season but things are definitely more worrying this time. Performances are not that bad, last 3 games v Utd, Chelsea and Newcastle we have more than held our own but lack of goal threat is serious.

Saha can spark the odd time but there is not much else. We have lost Artetas goals from midfield and Tim Cahill has not scored in a year when generally he would chip in with 8/10 goals a season.

On the bright side Rodwell is benefitting from getting a regular run of games and there is talk of Landon Donovan coming back in January.

Moyes hands are tied due to lack of funds but he is going to have to look at the strategy of playing 1 up front which has served him so well for so long. This was great when we had Arteta,Pienaar and Tim Cahill weighing in with goals but if you have 5 in midfield you need some of them scoring.

Donavan signing in January will provide a lift and if we could bring in a decent striker we should be ok for a top 10 finish.

January transfer window open again. Will Moyes get spending any of the Arteta moolah and any of the 5 or 6 million we're sure to recoup on Bilyletdinov. He bloody better. Good to see Landon Donovan back for another 2 month spell as he was superb last time. Sriker needs to be purchased and a winger. I can foresee another month of inactivity though.

Pretty depressing. Gibson has a good shot on him but that is only his redeeming feature. Games often pass him by completely.

I think David Moyes is like the boy with his finger in the dyke (careful now), he seems to have had enough.

This season is making me ill. I've watched MOTD maybe once, I've only been to Goodison once and football in general is doing my loaf in. Darron Gibson. Holy sweet Jesus, give me strength..
glad im not the only one feeling like that. not overly thrilled about gibson but now hes one of us we'll have to get behind him. if it keeps neville out of midfield it can only be a good thing. still badly need a striker and a central defender, where from i dont know.

Great pass by Donovan for the goal, hopefuly a few more like it before he goes back.

Duffy is a great prospect,only for Everton's academy with the likes of Hibbert,Osman, Anichebe, Rodwell and Barkley coming through we would be in serious trouble.

With a lot ot talk around McClean, centre back is postion where the Ireland team is weak, maybe Duffy could make a late push. for the Euros.

I share your pain Sheedy, I'd worry if we will get to 40 points the way we are playing, Bolton and Blackburn seem to be hitting a bit of form and QPR may improve under Hughes so it could be a long season yet.

Bilyletdinov on his way to Spartak Moscow. Simply wasn't suited to the premier league. Whatever we get for him, hopefully around 5m, needs to be splashed out on a striker.

Talk is of a £5m deal. Moyes will probaly buy another defender,talk of Onuhua from Man City at the weekend.

Not sure who you could get for £4 or £5m assuming Moyes is allowed to spend it. Would Hooper from Celtic be worth a gamble? Or Rhodes from Huddersfield?

According to skysports we've put in a bid for Jelavic. Also linked with Kevin Doyle who can't get a start for Wolves. I think Rangers turned down a 7m bid for Jelavic last week from West Ham, so can't believe we're gonna come in with a higher bid than that. Will hopefully be a busy few days at Goodison Park.

anything over 5million would be too much for jelavic. good scoring record for rangers but only 2 goals in 17 matches for croatia might be a truer reflection of his talents.

Typical Everton,lose at home to QPR and Bolton and then beat the league leaders.

Listening to the game on the radio,City didn't create much and they seem to have really went off the rails waya from home.

Good week for us with this result and a couple of signings. Hopefully Jelavic can bang in a few goals between now and the end of the season.

That halfwit tonight put me in mind of the time Big Nev came out on his own and sat on the goal line vs Leeds about 20 years ago.

Big Dennis is limited,even his goal was lucky enough but he's a real trier.

Great tackle by Phil Neville and pass by Donovan for 2nd goal. Donovan has 6 assists since he came on loan in January, pity he could'nt stay.

Now that it's well established that he's fit for the league, what's stopping Everton, or some other PL club, from making a permanent move for Donovan? You'd assume he'd like to give it another proper go in Europe, and he probably has another two or three seasons in him. Is he on huge money in LA or something? Transfer fee wouldn't be that much of a stumbling block.

Donovan has godlike status in the MLS and is on a salary next after Beckham, starting with a basic of about £1.5m p/a, then add on other earnings.
Everton could and probably should have signed Keane when he was available for a song.
A transfer fee £3.5m and  similar salary as Donovan would have sealed it.

Steady on there Sheedy. It's been a decent month. Confidence is back and Goodison is becoming a hostile venue again. Just shows if the team give the fans something to shout about, it's a tough ground to go to. Have watched the last 2 games in full. Jury still out on Gibson. He looks a bit lost. He hasn't been playing regularly I suppose but even the basics look beyond him. Hopefully, he'll bed in. Sunderland game should be a cracker. Will deffo go to Wembley for the semi-final if we can beat them.

Frustrating night. Second to every ball and lacking aggression. IMO we should cash in on Rodwell this summer and Fellaini too. For the money we would get we could buy better. I dont care what the papers say, Fellaini gives the ball away far too much for my liking. Rodwell is still young but he isn't making enough happen. Too fond of back passing.
Hopefully we play our first team Saturday.

I never could see anything in Hibbert and last night confirmed that for me.

Does he do anything other than boot the ball as high and far as he can?

Rodwell never burst passed anyone all night, Pineaar had a mare, midfield was very poor and overrun, not one decent ball for any of the forwards to run onto.

Maybe the kick up the arse required for saturday!

The sides drew the original fixture 1-1 at Goodison Park, when Tim Cahill cancelled out Phil Bardsley's opener for the Black Cats. The hosts will be more confident now they are on home soil, but they have not beaten the Toffees in their last 16 attempts. Presented by Adrian Chiles, with commentary by Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend and analysis from Roy Keane and Peter Reid. Subsequent programmes subject to change.

19:30 Live UEFA Champions League Benfica v Chelsea (Kick-off 7.45pm). Coverage of the quarter-final first-leg encounter at the Estadio da Luz, where the Portuguese club host the only remaining English team. The Blues produced a stunning comeback to defeat Napoli 5-4 on aggregate in the previous round after losing the opening leg 3-1, but face another stern test in Benfica, who eliminated Zenit St Petersburg to progress to this stage. The hosts have already faced English opposition in this competition, having drawn home and away with Manchester United in the group stage, and they are unlikely to be too daunted at the prospect of facing Roberto di Matteo's men.

Gibson makes a good bit of a difference when he's on.

He's better at picking the long range passes for Cahill, Jelli and Guaye to chase after.

Thought the hounding done by the midfield last night prevented Sunderland from getting going, McClean had very little to work with.

I would have brought Denis on earlier as Jelli was a busted flush after 60 minutes or so.

Unbelievable performance by Everton last night. Should have been 4 or 5. Jelavic was briiliant last night, could have had 3 or 4 goals but ran himself into the ground. Yakubu despite his goals was not doing this and that is probably why he was sold.

Everton might not have the most gifted squad in the PL but I doubt there is a more together or committed group of players in the PL.
It is a pity we could not bring in 2 or 3 quality players in the summer and push on.

Hopefully there will be no injuries before the semi final and we can give Liverpool a good kicking.

Here's hoping Everton take their neighbours to the woodshed.

The contrast between managers is staggering to say the least, Moyes has done more with less than any manager in the league whilst Kenny has done an awful job managing Liverpool, he has spent indecent amounts of money on players that were excellent before they got there and now they are dreadful and half the players they were prior to coming to Anfield.

I was stunned at carrolls act the other day, he could have tapped a ball in as he had rounded the keeper and instead he dives, he responds to the crowd who clearly got in his head and then, when subbed out because he was absolute shite he throws a tantrum and shows up the manager and the club, he is not worth it.

Liverpool have totally lost their way, both on the field of play and in the court of public opinion. To me the buck stops with daglish, he has been absolutely dreadful and they need to replace him as soon as possible because he is a mare!

What scares me is our continuous psychological meltdown when playing Liverpool, even when they are playing shite. Moyes better have them right. Roll on Saturday lunchtime....

Moyes has a few big calls to make, two from three in Jagielka, Distin and Heitenga, probably Fellaini and Gibson with Gueye, and Osman wideish and Cahill just off Jelavich.
Has to be Baines and Neville in the two fullback berths for me.

This is do dog or shite the license for both clubs as Moyes has never won a trophy and Liverpool looking to finish off on a high after a recent poor run.

Gibson's game has certainly thrived at Everton.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/apr/13/darron-gibson-everton (http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/apr/13/darron-gibson-everton)

"I wouldn't say the manager has been on my case but he has certainly had a few words about how he wants me to play. The football here is a lot different than it was at Manchester United. I was shocked at how hard we worked to be honest. It took me a few games to get used to it. Manchester United have the ball most of the time, don't they? It is different here. We don't have as much of the ball; we are running around a bit more. In recent weeks when we have been getting results we have been pressing teams and working really hard to do it, which is something we didn't do much of at Manchester United. I am probably the fittest I have ever been in my career."

Does he miss United? "No, not really," comes the response.

On the managers

"They are completely different," the midfielder claims. "Moyes is a lot more hands on; he wants to do everything himself whereas the years I was at Manchester United, Sir Alex used to let the coaches do most of the work. He did the team talks and the tactics but, on the training ground, it was the coaches who did the work. Their team talks are completely different too, although I can't explain why. Probably the only similarity is that they are both Scottish and sound the same."

Absolutely sick after that result today. Everton just never came out in the 2nd half. Liverpool never looked like scoring until Distins mistake. After that we just fell apart. Jags would probably have handled Suarez better. Very disappointed in Cahill today also. Never gave Jelavic any support in 2nd half. I don't mind being bet by a better team but Liverpool were atrocious for 70 minutes.

I thought Liverpool were good for most of the second half. And never looked like scoring? According to EC Carroll had the miss of the century just after half time. In fact Everton never really looked like scoring until Jamie Carragher decided to play Leinster Junior League Division 5.

It was a pretty even game overall though, and Everton will be sick alright. I was disappointed (well, disappointed is the wrong word) at Cahill too. He normally gives Liverpool fits.

Almost a carbon copy of Gary Stevens in 86. Sickening as someone said you wouldn't mind getting outplayed.

It seems Everton don't handle expectation well, probably not used to it in fairness. Yesterday they had nothing to play for and went for it, something Moyes doesn't really do that often. Granted Utd opened up the defence very easily at times.

But the ways of modern football sees them in the continual cage of being outside the money clubs. Moyles produces miracles after miracles each year.

You'd wonder why it wouldn't make sense to have a shared stadium like the San Siro in Milan, both clubs would benefit immeasurably from it.

As for not having money, when you see how Blackburn have went under the stewardship of Venkeys, then sometimes its better the devil you know. Kenright doesn't have the money to scratch himself in premiership terms but he's got the clubs best interests at heart and maybe the best man for a few more years as I can see the big money from Sky beginning to dry up.

I think alot of it largely boils down to the fact that Everton have absolutely nothing to bring to the table in terms of finance or long term funding to it. Any grounds they have looked at is largely partnerships and handouts. I read recently they don't even have money to build a new club shop at Goodison. Capacity requirements is also a problem.

It annoys me that Groundshare only ever gets mentioned for Liverpool/Everton. Never any other clubs. Also is it not the case that it has proven to be problematic in other countries and that in Italy in particular clubs are trying to get away for the groundshares?

I should also have added, I don't think Liverpool have the funds to build a new one themselves, as the maths just doesn't add up. It is realistically going cost 400m or whatever for 20,000 new seats plus their isn't any value in Anfield in terms of resale nor do they have the corporate market or pricing freedom that other clubs would have.

Whenever people talk about shared stadia etc, they usually point to Italy as an example.

Yet this misses the point, since the thing about italian club stadia is not that they are shared, but that they are (almost) invariably municipally owned. And if a city has two senior clubs, the local Council won't want to build separate stadia, but will instead force them to share. In fact, they sometimes have to share it with an Athletics track, too eg Roma and Lazio in the Stadio Olympico.

Of course, the fact that Italian clubs didn't have to shell out for an expensive stadium and upkeep etc gave them a (short-term) financial advantage over eg their English rivals in past times. But as fans have demanded better/safer facilities and the Marketing guys have learned how to make money from corporate sources (Boxes, catering, hospitality, conferences etc), English clubs have invested billions upgrading or replacing their stadia, whilst (cash-strapped) Italian Councils have failed to invest similarly for Serie A clubs.

In fact, I think I'm right in saying that the only new football-only Serie A stadium built in the last quarter century has been that of Juventus and even then, with a capacity of "just" 41k and a construction cost of "only" €120m, it doesn't sound that special for one of the giants of the world game - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juventus_Stadium.

Meanwhile, their neighbours and former co-tenants Torino are stuck in the (municipal) Stadio Olympico - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stadio_Olimpico_di_Torino - which their fans hate.  And prior to these developments, both clubs shared the (municipal) Stadio delle Alpi, which I can tell you from personal experience, was pretty dreadful, hence both teams' desperation to get out of it:
"The poor visibility led to extraordinarily low attendances. For example, in the Coppa Italia home match against Sampdoria in the 2001–02 season, only 237 spectators showed up"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stadio_delle_Alpi

In fact, had it not been for the Italian Government pumping cash into new stadia for the 1990 World Cup (and 2006 Winter Olympics), then Italian football stadia would be far behind those of their rivals in England, Spain, Germany etc.

And in any case, if the worst comes to the worst and a club gets into serious financial difficulty, it is much more likely to be rescued by a new investor if it already owns it own stadium outright, than if it rents and/or shares a stadium - see Rangers, for example.

You're quite right about Italy, Bingo (see my previous post)

I should also have added, I don't think Liverpool have the funds to build a new one themselves, as the maths just doesn't add up. It is realistically going cost 400m or whatever for 20,000 new seats plus their isn't any value in Anfield in terms of resale nor do they have the corporate market or pricing freedom that other clubs would have.
And you're correct about the (financially unjustifiable) cost of enlarging Anfield, too.

But Liverpool are between a rock and a hard place, since building a new Stadium elsewhere could cost anything up to £500m, which is a huge amount to gamble on a club which is going nowhere on the pitch at the moment.

As for sharing with Everton, even if each club had, say, £200m (and EFC certainly don't), no owner of either club is going to accept being the minor partner i.e. less than 50% ownership, since the other club could use their majority to drive through changes (rent, renovation, facilities) which suit only it.

And 50:50 ownership would be potentially even worse, since neither club would be in a position to make changes  for its own advantage.

Remember, wealthy investors invariably insist on control over their investment, and a ground-share inevitably dilutes or compromises that. Which is why eg the first thing Spurs did when they decided to replace WHL was to de-list their shares from the Stock Exchange i.e. owner Joe Lewis (or his new investors?) are not prepared to be beholden even to minority shareholders, in the way eg Abramovic is to the Chelsea Pitch Owners.

I think it'd be a good move for both if Cahill went for a few million, hasn't been his best the last year or so!

F365
Reports have suggested Saudi club Al Hilal have made a multi-million pound offer to lure the midfielder to the Middle East, while it is understood Chinese side Guizho Renhe have made an official approach to the 32-year-old.

Last week Cahill turned down turned down a 16 million dollar (£10.3million) three-year deal from an unnamed club in Saudi Arabia.

The midfielder, who played a starring role in Australia's 1-1 draw in their World Cup qualifier against group leaders Japan today, has made no secret of his desire to one day play in the Middle East.

He has two years remaining on his contract at Goodison Park and is happy at the club he joined in 2004 but it is believed he would consider a move overseas.

sad to see tim cahill leave for pastures new in the MLS. cahill will rightly be remembered as a legend at goodison but unfortunatly all good things come to an end.

Great player alright.
Delighted to see him get a move to a bigger club....

£12m rising to £15m depending on cups won, caps etc just like the Rooney deal.

Never ideal to see young talent leave, but with Barkley the brighter prospect, it might be a good move for all concerned.

Just get a proper right fullback please David!!  I can't watch Hibbert ballooning the ball up the field anymore.

Was hoping for more than 12m, but city being city have paid it all up front so will be interesting to see what Moyes does with it. I'd be expecting Matt Philipps, a full back and he might take a punt on Jordan Rhodes. Mancini the twat says Rodwell will be at a club who plays to win for the first time. Jesus, he hates us. Toffees love getting stuck into the t**ts especially at Goodison.

Mancini's record v Everton. Played 6 on 1 Lost 5. Sounds like sour grapes all right.

Moyes should have looked for Adam Johnson on loan as part of the deal.That and a move for Clint Dempsey.

Yeah, great start for the toffees. Fellaini and Pienaar rampant. Squad still a bit light though. I'd be hopeful of maybe 1 or 2 more players coming in, either purchased or on loan. Any injuries to key men and then we'd be in bother. Would love to see Donovan back again for a 3 month loan in January however was reading somewhere it's not going to happen this time as he wants a complete rest during his off season. I'd expect all the subs and a few youngsters to get a run out against Leyton Orient in the league cup during the week.

Just watched it on RTE.
Neither of the two were penos IMO (the one they got was one of course) and he was only millimeters offside if at all for the first goal, it certainly wasn't a few yards or clearly offside.

He has really improved alot in the past 2 season. Always had discipline problems though. He is very slick on the ball for such a big player,. One of a mumber of Belgian players who have been standing out this season.
Benteke,Hazard,Vertonghen after a slow star,

Fellani's team mate Kevin Virillas also look's a good player too. Then add in Kompany,Vermaelan etc. Belguim could be a good outside bet for WC 14.

gibson has been playing really well for everton since he signed and is one of the unsung heroes of the side.

 his absence from the ireland side is pretty straightforward. he was totally pissed off at not seeing 1 minute of action at the euros despite how shite we were and seeing the likes of paul green getting a game before him.

 though i never want to see a player turn their back on their country i think gibsons decision was understandable.cant seeing him gettin much of a look in while trap remains in charge unfortunatly.

I have no sympathy with Gibson at this (post tournament) stage for not turning up.
Trap gave him plenty of game time when he was shíte and could hardly get into Man u reserves. More often than not, Gibson pulled out due to some strain or other. Trap told him personally and publicly to get away from Man U.
He did work hard to get fit for the Euros and there I would have sympathy with him for not  even getting a subs appearance when clearly he was a class above what was there.
But get over it, better players than Gibson have managed to get over it, Carsley and Dunne at WC 2002, without throwing a hissy fit and whining for months on end, Brady took the insults on the chin and buckled down to get onto Charlton's team of hoofers.
Regardless of Traps tactics, it's a pathetic excuse for a player to snub his country.

Gibson does seem to be injury prone by the looks of it, but at least Fuzzy will be back for the next game.

think moyes wants to see what assurances he can get from the board regarding finances before he commits to another contract. the feeling maybe that he has taken everton as far as he can without getting the funds to take to the next level. he has said he wants to see how the season pans out. wether we can win the fa cup or secure champions league football before he signs.

everton fans were on his case for his lack of effort and rightly so, fellaini reacted by gesturing to crowd. held out his jersey to signal something along the lines of do you think you could do better. moyes then subbed him and the crowd let him know what they thought of his performance.
wasnt just fellaini though, the whole team were shite. end of an era for moyes.

Do you honestly think so? They had 5 bad minutes in the office that can happen to any team. They lost to a side in the same division. That's Cup football, all about the day! Look at the other Premiership teams that went out to lower division teams.

He is ten times the manager you lot have had in say the last three bucks ye have had in charge.

Moyes develops players, he buys cheap and sells for profit, Everton have a tenth of the resources Liverpool have and yet they have been highly successful in staying competitive in the top flight, Liverpool are all over the shop, have spent very badly for the most part and continue to struggle to finish in the top six let along the top four.

Ah, it's all relative. If you have money it's hard to bring players through as the Big Club fans need a fast fix. (Big) Clubs with lesser money can often get more time to develop players. Continuation is a big thing also at a club. No chopping and changing of Managers means year in year out the players are the Managers players. The hardest thing Moyes has had is to have consistent good seasons. He can put in a good season, but the following is usually horrible. A bit like Newcastle this season after last season. He's done a good job, but in regards silverware or final appearances his reign has been disappointing.

From F365 the Everton wage bill is £58m, £77m less than Liverpools and on a par with West Ham, Fulham and the likes, even Aston Villa have a larger wage bill.

The best players are attracted to big wages as much as CL football, obviously there's a direct correlation to that, but if you consider the wages Everton pay and what type of footballer they can attract because of this then Moyes is doing a pretty good job.

It's progress for Everton when you're disappointed they could only draw with Arsenal at the Emirates.

Coleman is progressing nicely, he and Baines give Everton most of their attacking threat at the minute.

And what an era it was. 11 years... No trophies.

He bought players on the cheap and sold them on for profit, his city rival bought players that were worth a tenth of what they paid for them.

He stabilized the club and helped them become a team that regularly vies for a top six spot.

He did not sign Andrew Carroll.

He has had no racist biters on his team, his players are not known to gnaw on opponents.

He has his team 5 points ahead of his city rivals, and that on a shoestring budget.

he is deemed good enough to leave and go to the perrenial Champions to head them up, the king got whacked by his city rivals because he was a shite manager and a pr nightmare, oh yeah, he paid big money for duds and cost the club millions, Moyes has Everton in the black.  :)

 Good luck to Moyes  at Man Utd , he stabilised us into a top 8 club with feck all money from the debt ridden perenial relgation favourites we were in 2002. I am glad in a way he got the chance to move on because without some major investment I don't think he could take Everton any further. Winning no trophies is a bit of a mark against him but he did come close in the FA cup and qualifying for the champions league and Europa leagues is nothing to sniff at where Eveton came form unless you are a Liverpool supporter with the luck of residing in the imaginary land of "next year is our year in the league"! ;D
 I have seen O' Neil , Lennon and Martinez mentioned but I would prefer somebody like Laudrup or Chris Hughton to take over. Whoever gets the job will have a tough time with Baines and Fellani more than likely gone plus the new fair play rules meaning the wage bill will have to be cut to match direct income next season. Also finishing above the pool will be a must for most Everton fans ( throw in West Brom , Swansea , Southampton and Villa fans to that list as well) because it would be a blow to fall behind a team guided by David Brent with an attack spear headed by a Man City/Chelsea reject in Sturridge and the 9 million man made of glass Borini! ;) even if all we hear is "next year is their year" in the league ::)

my preference for the new manager would be Michael laudrup. not neil lennon or mark hughes and definetly not phil Neville.

cant believe moyes is being allowed to stay on for the last 2 games. his time is over time to move on.

 In my defence Laoislad I am an Everton fan, Liverpool are our city rivals and(for the last couple of seasons) have been neck with us in the league so I think it's not too far fetched for me to throw in the odd dig (hardly an obsession) to the former illustrious Liverpool. Also a lot of you Pool fans are fairly interested in posting on the Everton thread so personally I don't see you grievance. Do you think Man U fans get paranoid when City fans post a few insults on their thread or is there some code of conduct for Arsenal and Spurs fans or Villa and Birmingham fans that us poor peasants across Stanley park haven't been told about.As a plus Pool fans are awful easy to wind up ;D.

 So it is to be Lennon for the Toffees. It's a bit of a gamble for Everton and him being a big step up from the comfort of the Scottish league but at least he has shown this season he can mix it against the big boys in the champions league. Also he won't be a stranger to working on a tight budget.

After 11 years of stability we could be back to the dark days again for a couple of years anyway, At this stage I would take a boring mid table finish next season regardless of who takes the job.

The three in bold would want to wind their neck in. Mirallas has alot to prove yet. Piennar should know where his best interests are served after his last misjudgement.Jelavic may just flourish again under a different manager but would many clubs take that risk on him after the second half of the season he's after having.

Don't know why Lennon would even be considering a jump right now. He's pretty much got at least three or four years of uncontested SPLs to win and time to focus on making a little noise in Europe. Very hard to see Everton even maintaining their recent level no matter who they appoint. The bar is set too high for a new manager to make a name for themselves. Lennon is better off staying as the big fish in a medium pond than being lunch for sharks.

Having read the doom and gloom on toffeeweb forum now for months I am not at all surprised to see Moyes go but I am a bit surprised Utd have taken a punt on him. I suppose with Godfather Alex their for assistance, they feel Moyes could grow into the role. To be honest I think he was a great manager for us and made us a much more stable, consistent team every year but I would be worried for Utd that he he tends to be focus more on hard work and be hard to beat rather than go out and play with flair and no fear of losing attitude. Maybe with a better squad that will change

I would agree with Moyes that in my eyes the current team are better than many others that came before us and last year with Jellyfish knocking them in for fun we thought we'd finally got the missing link. However, he has let us down big time and yet again we've won nothing and have to do being pleased with finishing above the red shite (unless we lose this Sunday).

Sadly I really can see this team fall apart now with Fellaini and probably Baines sure to go and maybe even Coleman as well. I can't see us getting any sort of decent manager whatsoever and like Crete said I'd really hate to see Lennon or Hughes.
What about Benitez? He always said he'd like to manage a BIG club and he's already made Liverpool his family home

 Hardly a fallacy to state something (while not definitive) that most historical reports and premier league fans surveys/stadium reports point to as being the more likely. What is a fallacy is using a comment by a disgruntled Red fan on a dubious Everton fans forum to back up your point.

If you remove the blowins from Ireland and Brits from outside of Merseyside, their support is much closer than you suggest.

Nah, I'm going to run with there being only 35,000 Toffees in the city of Liverpool. The numbers don't lie.

 Well they do lie especially when they are not put in context and are wrong ;D. On EvertonFc.com the average attendance has hovered between 36000 to 38000 over the last 3 years. Also you conveniently leave out the fact that a sizeable amount of Liverpool match tickets are sold en bloc through the very lucrative overseas fan clubs and the fact that Liverpools overseas fan base is ten times what Everton have. Throw in that every premier league fan survey shows that Everton fans on average travel 42 miles to get to home games whereas Pool fans on average travel 82 miles to get to Anfield which easily supports the claim that more locals follow the Toffees!

Since when did the city of Liverpool stretch for 42 miles outside from the centre? Maybe when Everton were contemplating moving to Kirkby. All your statistic demonstrates is that, contrary to their self-image, many Evertonians are in fact woolybacks and Taffs.

 Well there seems to be a definite list of contenders but which one is best suited to the Job?

- Malky Lackay seems to be the number one choice at the moment and would seem to be a clone of David Moyes circa 2002 in that he is an ex Celtic center half and has gain experience in the championship with a shaky but steady time at Watford followed by a successful period bringing Cardiff to the promised land. Can he step up like Moyes did with expectations being a lot higher than when Moyes took over in 2002?

-Roberto Martinez has just written himself into FA cup history with the win for Wigan and I was impressed that they took the game to City on the deck and not only won but fully deserved the win over the 90 mins. It was no back to the wall situation like 1995 with the dogs of war vs the slick big guns of Utd! Also I like he's belief in high tempo passing game which is good to watch are results in plenty of goals but the main downside is the equal amount of goals conceded as well as scored. He hasn't managed to fashion a stable back four in his time at Wigan but maybe with some better personnel and more money he might be able to do better but that's a big assumption!

-Neil Lennon would again be another Celtic man to come in and would be relatively inexperienced ( of the Premiership anyway) but his key big game experience and success in the champions league would probably negate this. Also a manger who prefers posseion football but I like the way he has tailored it to the limited talent pool available to him compare to Barca/Man utd etc.... He has bought well on a tight budget and picked a couple of gems from left field so provided he can control his fiery temperament he would definitely be a good fit for the Toffees

- And the rest :
 - Michael Laudrup , very impressive in winning a cup for Swansea while sticking to their slick Spanish type passing game with an eye for a bargain( Michu) but unlikely to jump ship this year from a team on the rise so I think this all but rules him out.
 - Martin O' Neill , a bit like his one time tormentor Cloughie he seemed a bit lost without his right hand man John Robertson and had money issues at Villa who had a much bigger budget than Everton at the time does I think make him a bit of a outsider for this one. Still wouldn't be surprised to see him take and bully his way into a top four finish with the Blues though!
- Rafa , now if I was chairman and was willing to do anything to even the odds of breaking into the top four Rafa would have to be on any shortlist. His football might be painful to watch but he did win a champions league with an average Liverpool team garnered with a couple of top class players. Also he won la liga on a shoestring budget with Valencia adding a Uefa cup as well. The main problem is his style of football and past association with Liverpool still fresh in the mind would make him a very controversial appointment.
- Mark Hughes , God where do I start? After the QPR debacle personally I would have Howard Kendall , El Tel Venables , Howard Wilkinson , Trap etc... all ahead of him!!!!

Vitor Pereira from Porto (The Quiet man's Mourniho)

HE HAS quietly crept up in the betting stakes to become David Moyes’ replacement, but the quiet man of Porto could be capable of making a big noise at Goodison.

Vitor Pereira is on the brink of retaining the Portuguese Liga title after a dramatic clash with Benfica on Saturday left his side in pole position to clinch the honours.

And with Pereira’s future at Estádio do Dragão, where he is out of contract in the summer, currently shrouded with uncertainty, the bookies reckon he could be a leading candidate to succeed Moyes at Goodison.

The 44-year-old has done well since replacing the Premier League bound Andre Villas Boas in charge at Porto in 2011, and while he shares some of the back-story which has made Villas Boas and Jose Mourinho before him a hit in the Premier League, Pereira does not share their outspoken traits.

In an interview yesterday he described himself as a man who prefers to focus on tactics, and leave the hogging of limelight to others.

“Portuguese people are strategic, with a huge work ethic” he said. “I do not have the talent to speak, in public, as finely as they do.

“Andre is very expressive, but I am different. I am a quiet person.

“I define myself differently: I am a tactical coach. For me, that part of the game is not so important.

“It is not part of my personality.”

Everton fans will care more about the footballing style of their next manager than whether he can produce the right soundbites, and when it comes to tactics Pereira says all the right things to whet their appetite.

“I like my teams to have total control, of the ball, of the game,” he said.

“I like to see my teams pressing very aggressively, very high up the pitch.

“The important thing is the balance between the attacking and defensive elements, but pressing high is the best way to defend. We have had the best defence in Portugal for the last two years.”

Pereira admits he has faced frustration at Porto, where he has had to sell some of the club’s stars, but has also had the opportunity to work with top talents like Joao Moutinho and Falcao.

“There are two parts to our job,” he said. “One is to find the young players before other clubs do.

“And then the other part is to help develop them. We look in countries where players tend to have creativity in their game, and then the coach’s job here is to teach them the tactics, the organisation, that you need to thrive in Europe. The players who move on take most of the credit, but for the coaches it is proof that we are doing our job.

“It is an honour for me to have worked with so many fantastic players. It is a point of pride to see them move on, to a better league, because it is a mark of my work.

“But the problem is that every year the best players are sold; we cannot build a team. Every year, we start again.”

If Pereira were asked to help Everton start again in the summer, the fluent English speaker would inherit at least one player he knows well.

Pereira tried to sign Belgian forward Kevin Mirallas from Olympiakos last summer before being beaten to the player’s signature by Moyes. After Mirallas shone again during Sunday’s win over West Ham, he clearly knows a talent when he sees one.

I'm a Liverpool fan, but work in a job that regularly means I interact with every social and economic demographic in Liverpool. Those that say they are Everton fans easily match those supporting Liverpool. Much of the additional Liverpool figures are people I meet from Ireland, down South, Lancaster, Yorkshire etc. The folk from the Wirral and Wales are easily evenly split between both clubs, with Tranmere, Wigan, United, Stoke, Blackpool and smaller clubs coming up in conversation too.

That said on match day at Goodison there are no shortage of Irish or Continental accents.

That's fair comment. My experience has been that there are broadly equal numbers of Reds and Blues in Liverpool. The one caveat I'd add is that this is only true past a certain age. Among younger people, Liverpool have a small but increasing majority of the support. Instances of 'mixed' families are on the decline and that is to the detriment of Everton's fan base. All this is, of course, purely anecdotal.

Quote

Everton fans weird
28-05-13

A FURIOUS protest over badges suggests Everton fans may not be normal.

The club has unveiled a new shirt badge which experts say is 6.4% different to the old badge.

But supporters insisted the new badge was ‘odd’, ‘clownish’ and a ‘betrayal of the club’s heritage’ leading to suggestions that they may be the sort of people who receive daily instructions from their goldfish.

Julian Cook, a badge dispute analyst, said: “To describe the new badge as ‘odd’ seems… odd.

“There’s also significant levels of fury at the absence of the club’s Latin motto, which translates as ‘nothing but the best is good enough’. Given Everton’s recent history, this would seem to be both untrue and redundant.

“Perhaps they could replace it with ‘David Moyes is a total fucknut’. In Latin.”

Cook added: “Both badges feature the same ugly little tower, both feature the club’s founding date and both are the same basic shape. But such is the level of anger that I sense this is not actually about the badge.

“Gary Lineker needs to tell someone to have a word with them.”

Of course it might be far off fields look green but I like the sound of Rangnick.

I read somewhere that Dave Whelan is looking for £2M in compensation should he go to Everton.
How does that work if a manager resigns from his role but then goes to another club.
Does there need to be a definite time between he joins a new club or does he have to buy himself out of his contract when he resigns?

It's kinda weird but I read yesterday that Fellaini is talking of staying now. Maybe its all just talk by him but we could probably do with the money we'd get for selling him. Hopefully if he goes it won't be at the last minute and we've no time to buy any replacements.

There was money in January set aside to buy Fer, so you'd hope that that money is still there, still like to see an out and out striker with pace akin to little pea who plays a bit part at ManU, its the least Moyes could do..

With Distin touching 35, another option at centre back would be good as Heitinga is looking out, thought he was poor last year and Duffy needs a loan to a championship club to get game time IMO.

Why do so many of ye think he's a great manager?

He did well this year to get them to win the cup but what else has he done?
He'll definitely have a better squad (at least to start with) than he had at Wigan but he'll need to buy well. We need a decent striker right away (how about Darren Bent or why has he gone down the pecking order recently)
We probably also need another centre back unless Duffy gets more of a chance with Martina

I really hope Mirallas stays as I've enjoyed watching him this year. Yes he gets a lot of injuries but he has great pace and creates loads of chances.

Martinez certainly isn't waiting about like Davey did in the transfer window

He's just clinched a 1 year loan deal for Deulofeu  (http://"http://www.toffeeweb.com/season/13-14/news/25086.html")from Barcelona's B side.
He's described by some as a young raw Ronaldo

He's also signed his old mates Kone, Alcaraz and the young Spanish keeper Joel Robles who played for Wigan in the FA cup final this year and could put major pressure on Howard.

Still no official bids for Affro boy but I'd expect Utd to come in with a higher bid for Baines.

You'd wonder at the humble ones logic in letting Lukaku go on loan considering the lack of a Drogba esque character in the current Chelsea ranks!

Evertons gain.

ultimate game of 2 halves tonight. played some brilliant football in the 1st half but got sloppy in the 2nd and that led to a nervy finish. brilliant to get the win though, up to 4th and keeps the unbeaten run going. McCarthy was steady but coleman was superb both at defending and going forward.

Never got to see it, but Radio 5 live were raving about Barkley at half time, he looks a good one, physically bigger than Rooney at the same age, will do well to hold onto him in the summer.

real end to end game today, could have ended 5 each. thought we should have got the 3 points and would have only for giving away some really poor goals from set pieces. mc carthy and lukaku played really well as did mirallas who gets extra marks for scoring and 'doing' suarez.  ;D. disappointed we couldn't see the match out and get the win.

It was the best mersey derby for years and was very disappointed we couldn't hold on for the long over due win.
Mirallas admitted himself he thought he should have saw a red card but I wonder how much of that was in revenge for last year's tackle by Suaraz on him and also on Distin.

It's a strange league this year with only 4 points between 2nd and 9th.
Deulofeu looks a very exciting young player but typical where he tries to do too much and often his final pass or shot isn't great.

Baines is out for a month or more with suspected broken metatarsal so will be interesting to see does Martinez play Oviedo or move Distin there and use Stones. Hibbert is back fit again as is the new lad Alcaraz.
I'm dleighted with Spurs getting hockeyed by City as I saw them and Liverpool as our main rivals for 4th.

If it were premeditated, then it wasn't rash. Personally I don't think he went out to injure Suarez - that 'Jaimie K' chap is four corners of a bollix - and I would find it very strange that anyone would think it was justifiable if it had been.

A lof of Blues fans think that the Pool's physio made the ref's mind up for him
As he came on to treat him he spoke to the ref and incensed the Everton players.
If he had sent him off then it would have looked like the physio influenced the ref into sending him off.

McCarthy played very well for Everton but rarely gets the plaudits from MOTD or sky etc
Michael Owen was commentating on BT sports and he was so biased it was like listening to Donegal's Highland radio commentators.

We've got stoke at home next and then Utd & Arsenal away within 8 days.

great and all that it is, but the good form is reliant on the good form of the loanees. Long term we're not going to be able to sign Lukaka or Deulofeu permanently. Barry would need to consider a pay cut to come, but sure we'll enjoy it while it lasts.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Fuzzman on December 02, 2013, 12:05:03 PM
I was worried by Martinez's appointment at the start but he's come in and showed with 3 months much more optimism and entertaining football than Moyes ever showed us. Moyes would never have clinched this 3 great loanees and yeah they probably won't sign long term but they might extend for another year. Lukaku has 8 goals already and isn't even playing that well. I don't think he'll go back to Chelski but I'd say after the world cup he'll be snapped up for 30m+ by some CL heavy weight.
I think he might the right choice though moving to us though in a world cup season where he knew he'd be a regular starter and would get good supply from Pienaar, Baines, Mirallas & Barkley amongst others.

These loan players have made a huge difference to the season already and allowed Martinez to get off to a good start without having to spend loads. There is a lot of competition this year for the top 4. Look how much money Spurs spent during the summer and they're still only mid table.
Tough 2 games now though away to Manure on Wed and then away to Arsenal.

Martinez needs to go hard early on and unsettle Utd as they're confidence isn't great, allowing them time and possession and hoping to hit on the counter attack won't work IMO.

I think it'll be a 2-2 draw and that'll do nicely, but a win is not beyond them.

Great win and whilst Manu had a good few chances, so did Everton, it wasn't the normal case of holding on for grim death and hoping for a corner or something to score from.

I think Martinez is doing well with the good footballers he inherited, I'll reserve judgement until he's to go and get a replacement for Distin who's touching 35 IIRC. Moyes rarely bought a bad defender apart from the lad who couldn't head the ball from Denmark..

 Yeah Distin will need to be replaced  sooner rather than later but I think we already have options with Barry (if he makes his move permanent) , Shane Duffy, Josh Stones and Alcaraz but all of them would be fairly unproven in my eyes. Plenty of good centre backs around though and if next summer is anything like the business we did this summer Roberto will do okay.
 I really hope we get McGeady in the Jan window because he will cost a pittance and give us some real pace on the wing we haven' t had in a while to agument Baines and Coleman. We could also do with a viable 10 or 11 goal a season striker to back up Lukaku for the second half of the season as well as I think Jelavic will be heading out the door to Hamburg by the looks of things and Kone will have to have at least 10 thousand chances to score 10 goals in any season!! >:(

Martinez has already done a great job and I have to admit I was a doubter when he first joined.
He seems to really focus on the positives all the time and the main thing he's given the players is the freedom and confidence to go out there and play and not be fearful of making mistakes which many were scared of doing under Moyes.

I think you'll see Alcaraz as Jag's main partner before the season is out and at 31 (same as Jags) he'll probably be here to stay for a while with young Stones his understudy should he get injured again which I fear he might. I'd say a striker will be Roberto's main focus for the January window although he might have to wait until after the World cup to get who he really wants.
Most of the fans on Toffeeweb don't think Duffy will ever make the team as he's a bit slow. I think Stones will be the third choice CH after Distin plays his last game. He's still super fast for his age though and I can see him play most of the season unless he gets hurt. He started 31 league games last year, Baines played all 38. Amazing! I wonder does Baines even want to move to Utd now when he sees them struggling this year. There could be other teams interested in him though.

Arsenal away on Sunday should be interesting but I fear it will be a step to far. We never do that well when we travel to London and I'd say we'll be a bit tired after Wed night's big effort. Hope I'm wrong.

Maybe Martinez could get someone in on a short term deal like Defoe ( I would prefer someone more consistent) who needs game time to impress before the world cup. I fell we could do with a goal getter to come off the bench and deputise for Lukaku should he get injured!

I wouldn't take much notice of what they say on Toffeeweb/Blueroom/Grandoldteam Fuzzman when it comes to Irish players. They were screaming murder when we signed McCarthy for 13m comparing him to Joe Parkinson and John Ebrell , and Coleman was described as a pub player who shouldn't be let anywhere near the team ahead of Hibbert. I think Duffy still has potential and is at least as pacey as Jags (he had a good run at Burnley last season) but he has suffered from a horrendous run of injuries so maybe he has missed his chance! I suppose this season will tell whether he has a future or not but I would trust Martinez to give him a fair go and he is contracted till 2015.

Quite an impressive performance from the entire team, even Jagielka can play a bit of football when needed it seems, with his break up the parc to make a chance for Everton.
I thought Coleman was good yesterday.

The only difference of note is that Arsenal were able to bring on Flamini, Walcott etc, etc and we brought on delafeau, who's a clinker.. and Naismith who is found wanting at this level.

Hang on in there over this month and hopefully pick up a few decent players in the january window and a top 4 is very likely at this rate.

 If we can keep our luck with form and injuries we have certainly got one of the easiest Christmas schedules I can ever remember ,
Dec 14 th home v Fulham , 22nd away v Swansea , 26th home v Sunderland , 29th home v Southampton , Jan 1st away v Stoke , Jan 11th Jan home y v Norwich  and Jan 20th away v West Brom before we go to Anfield on the 1st of Feb!!

 I see we are being linked with stirkers Matais Suarez and Alfred Finnbogason. I don't know much about them but googling Suarez he seems to be highly rated , have a solid goal scoring record for Anderlecht but be a bit injury prone and Finnbogason had scored 100 goals in 161 apps albeit in the Dutch and lower leagues. Also Martinez must be reading your posts Fuzzman as we are linked with young Dundee center half Jonathan Soutar.

Post by: Fuzzman on December 09, 2013, 02:35:54 PM
Watched the game yesterday in the pub with an Arsenal mate and yet again thoroughly enjoyed the experience. El Roberto surely has them playing with NO FEAR and you can see in the first half especially how comfortable they are in possession and bossed Arsenal on their own patch. I think they had over 60% possession in the first half although not that many clear cut chances.
I don't think Lukaku is as sharp as he was when he first started with us but he's still a major goal threat and is a very powerful centre forward.

When Delboy came on I said to my mate watch this talented little wizard and his pace but too often no final product. He sure made me eat my words there thankfully to my mate's disgust. Either team could have won it and probably Arsenal had the better clear cut chances but to go there and put on such a performance is very heartening.

I see there is an option to extend Deulofeu's loan for a second year if Barca don't need him back which would be amazing. He's just one of those very exciting skillful players who has pace and can just spring past players at his ease. Roberto says he's very arrogant in a good way which is what you need to succeed at this level I suppose.
Of course the English medja are raving about Barkley and how he could be there best player at the world cup if he continues to improve.
McCarthy really has become our main engine room midfielder now with so much hard work and tackling. He's not the most creative player on the park but along with Barry they've formed quite a formidable Mf partnership.

I see Wenger was complaining about some GAA tactics being used yesterday. Where Everton pressed them high up the pitch but if they broke through then they would be cynically pulled down by tactical fouling.

I must say I'm enjoying being an Everton fan for the first time since the 80's when I was a bit too young to appreciate the good days. I can't wait until the next game and might even take a spin over for a game in the new year.

Having spent the last year or so bemoaning Tyrone's negative defensive tactics and missing how we used to tear teams open I am glad that my second team are helping to fill the void.
Should we compare Moyes to Mickey Harte. They are some similarities alright but I prefer how Mr Martinez likes to take risks and focus on the positive side of things. He even said at the weekend he'd rather lose playing good football than win playing ugly.

January transfer window sure will determine whether we can push for 4th or not. I think we definitely need a good striker as Kone is out for the season and Jellyfish has completely gone off the boil. Can't believe a few clubs are interested in him.

Loving being a Toffee at the moment, actually being given praise in the media is a bit strange.

Martinez always seems to say the right thing in the press, see he came out with "why should a team that has won the league 9 times not aim for the champions league",saying and doing all the right things at the moment.

No reason with a couple of Jan signings why we can't make top 4, very little between most of the top 6 or 7 teams.

I suppose ye never no in football but it would be nice to be in the top 4 if not even 2nd come Christmas. We've got some reasonable handy home ties and the teams above us have a tougher December schedule
Everton have...
Fulham home
Swansea away
Sunderland home
Southampton home

Should we not lose at home we'll have went the whole year without losing at Goodison.
In 2012 we had gone the whole season unbeaten until the final day where Chelsea won 1-2

Man City have Arsenal and Liverpool at home over the next few weeks
Liverpool are also away to Spurs next and then away to Chelsea on the 29th
Chelsea are away to Arsenal on the 23rd

It sure would be nice to replace Liverpool in the top 4 as they have 3 tough away games and Stevie G is out injured as is Sturridge.

I know it's always dangerous to speculate as football can be so unpredictable but it would be very disappointing to beat Utd away and so so well v Arsenal to then slip up at home to so called lesser sides. Teams could come to Goodison though and park the bus and hope for a 0-0.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Fuzzman on December 16, 2013, 05:14:32 PM
It's tough at the top.

We've beaten Stoke 4-0 at home
We've drew 1-1 away to Arsenal
We've beaten Utd 0-1 away

and now we've beaten Fulham 4-1 at home yet we're still only bloody 5th in the table.
Man City & Liverpool have really upped their performances of late as well.
With City drawing Barca in Europe you would imagine they too will soon have no more mid week games to worry about though Arsenal might also have the same if they lose to Bayern.

Away to Swansea next which has been a good venue for us over the last few years. A lot of talk about McGeady coming to us next year.

not only have our results been impressive the performances have been equally as good. the goals are being shared around which means we aren't as dependant on lukaku and with Swansea away, sunderland home, Southampton home, stoke away and then Norwich home we have the chance to get a decent points tally by the new year. but being a pessimistic blue I reckon we'll probably get 5 draws. ;)

Regarding the sacking of Steve Clarke and WBA struggling to recapture last seasons form I was wondering how influential Lukaku and his 19 goals were. I'm not saying Everton are WBA but could they struggle if/when Lukaku returns to Chelsea.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Orangemac on December 16, 2013, 09:52:08 PM
Never mind next season if Lukaku got injured we would be seriously short of strikers. Number 1 priority must be decent striker. number 2 tying down Barkley to a new contract. Exciting the thought of Barkley and McCarthy pairing over the next 5 years.

Post by: Fuzzman on December 17, 2013, 11:09:41 AM
Yeah with Kone out injured, Jellyfish having lost ALL his confidence and touch and Lukaku looking a little tired or not as sharp as he did when he first came in, I really really hope we sign a decent striker in Jan or have a few lined up for the summer. I think we've enough defenders & maybe another midfielder as I think Gibson is just going to always be an injury prone player.
What strikers would you like to see come in.
I was wondering about someone like Michu or what about Benteke another Belgian though he seems to have got cold this season.

Sounds like there was a major fear factor with all at the club around Moyes. He always kinda looked cross and stressed, even when he was happy. I wonder has he brought that mentality with him to Utd now

Great to see Martinez can relax and have some fun with the players. We mightn't get into the top 4 as competition is tough but by God he has helped us all to enjoy watching football again. I really look forward every weekend now to our matches and record them on sky+ match choice.

totally agree. cant remember the last time I looked forward to every match. Martinez has given everton fans reason to feel proud again. pride not only from the results but also from the performances. should be a good match on sunday against Swansea, two teams who like to pass and keep possession. an away win would set us up nicely for the 2 home games over Christmas.

I see Clint Dempsey is back with Fulham. Would be nice if he played and scored v Man Shitty on Sat.
A draw or a loss there could really help us move up into 4th however I don't know will we be able to beat Swansea as easy as we have other years.
Lukaku is due a goal as is Barkley but I fear a 0-0 or a 1-1.
You'd imagine the Liverpool will beat Cardiff and go top at least until Monday night. Arsenal will need to win then to reclaim top which I don't see then doing but who knows.

I'm looking forward to see how Liverpool do at home to Man City. Hopefully another high scoring game.5-0

I just have that inevitable feeling that we will drop points in one or two of the games in this easy run of games we have before the derby in Anfield and the smart money would be on this game at Swansea but the Toffees couldn't be accused of being any way smart for the last 20 years so we will probably loose to Sunderland at home as well :'( :'(

lukaku has been quiet in the last few games due I feel to lack of service especially from miralles who for some reason doesn't want to pass. at the minute we're getting goals from all over the team which is vital as lukaku goes through a quiet patch.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Fuzzman on December 23, 2013, 04:43:56 PM
Yeah I watched the second half yesterday and the way Coleman & McCarthy drive on and show great work ethic and hunger is really great to watch. Coleman especially has took it to another level this year. He's flourishing under Roberto and like our whole new motto NO FEAR, you could see yesterday he took on that shot like a Brazilian full back whereas had Moyes been manager he'd be too scared to f**k it up and get the head eaten aff him.

You could see how much it meant to him by his kicking of the hoarding and he's usually such a quiet shy lad. I was glad to see Barkley score as there has been so much talk and praise for him but besides his opening day screamer v Norwich he's not actually scored since I think.
Mirallas has so much potential and skill and pace yet he seems to be lacking this year. He doesn't seem to be benefiting from the same surge of confidence the others are experiencing. He's definitely feeling the pressure a bit now I think and being greedy and playing for himself and not for the team. Lukaku has certainly gone off the ball I think the last few weeks whereas in Nov everything he touched turned to goal.

I'm off to my local with a red, a gunner and a ManUre fan tonight to watch the Chelsea game. It would be killing two birds with one stone if Arsenal win.
I know I'm being nasty but I hope Oldham take Chewy Suaraz out for the rest of the season as otherwise they're gonna keep winning. The amount of goals he's getting is gonna win the league for them on his own. I've 3 Pool brothers so I can get away with saying that.  ;)
Still no word of who were are looking for to sign but he RS has said a striker and central MF backup

We are being linked with Shane Long and McGeady. That would be some amount of Irish players. Probably even a bigger contingent than we had back in the '50s. I'm a fan of Shane Long. Good, hard working striker, but he wouldn't be cheap. McGeady if we got on the cheap might work out. I think Martinez is getting the maximum out of all his players. Exciting times indeed. 6 points needed over the festive season.

hull had a bid of around 4/5 million for shane long accepted in the summer but the move fell through. mcgeady is out of contract in the summer so wouldnt cost a huge amount. im not the biggest mcgeady fan in the world but I believe he could just do a job for us as a back up for miralles/deufelou/pienaar. 6pts must be the aim over the next 2 games if we want to finish the year in the top4.

Talk of Newcastle or some Italian clubs coming in for him. I really can't see him getting near the Dutch world cup squad at this stage anyway but don't know much about who they have at CB.

Funny, I used to hate watching McGeady but I actually think he could do well for us.
Was reading about him earlier and I hear he's hard to get on with.

I really hope we get a good goal scoring forward even if we have to burst the bank.

Comfortable home win today. Hopefully Barkley won't be out for too long. We are playing with some confidence at the minute. So we've signed McGeady on a 4.5 year deal. He's clearly carrying a bit of timber and won't be fit for a few weeks. I'd say the russians got a minimal fee to cover the last few months of his contract. Was never that big a fan but Martinez rates him highly. I hope he can get the best out of him. Keane watching at Goodison today. Himself and O'Neill will be regular visitors now...

2 great goals yesterday but back to 5th again with those reds winning again. We're away to West Brom next with Pool home to Villa. Hope we stay on their tales for the derby at the end of the month. With Jelavic all but gone now there's an urgent need for a striker. Talk of Oriol Riera from Osauna in Spain or the standard Liege lad Batshuayi. I think McGeady may be slow to get going but I think he will do well with us under a great manager who believes in him. You forget he has played CL football now for a good number of years unlike most of our team

Tuesday night will be interesting, but with the injurys its unsure if the lack of Coleman, Delafeau, etc, etc that chances could be created against a very ropey Liverpool defence.

Would like to see Stones get a start against Suarez and Sturridge to see how far he's come on..

Hopefully this big lad on loan will share the scoring burden for Lukaka who's been off the boil, but allegedly has a good record against Liverpooool..

Yeah both teams have a lot of injuries but by the sounds of things Everton have more first time players out. From the talk on Toffeeweb even Jags could be out but we won't know until the night.
Am really looking forward to watching it though often they let us down a bagful in such big games.

Mirallas, who I've been slating all year, looks to have finally got his finger out and be working a bit harder. His pace could upset the Red shite back four but I'm more worried about how we handle their S&S. I was looking forward to this game all over Christmas but now that its here and we've so many injuries I'd take a draw.

How do you think McGeady played on Sat?
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: johnneycool on January 28, 2014, 09:11:04 AM
thon left back Sissoko or whatever he's called is for the taking, hence missing Coleman will be a big loss as he'd tear your man a new one. Countino doesn't offer much cover for him down that wing and its somewhere Everton could target with Pineaar or McGeady if he's more direct and stops phaffing about.

Jags being out is a huge loss, does that leave Stones and Heitenga? That would be a big worry..

Both Liverpool's fullbacks are weak at the moment, regardless who plays. That's Everton's route to success. Also LFC are built on 3 Central midfielders and trying to control the tempo of the game. With injuries to Lucas and Allen, we could be down to a midfield partnership of Gerrard and Henderson, and Everton could have joy there. Everton must be favourites for this game.

Yes that young blonde in the crowd has got a lot of publicity online today. She was one of the few silver linings to last night.

We wuz brutal and what was Roberto thinking of playing with such a high defensive line without Distin and Coleman. Our lack of pace against S&S was suicidal and I worried it could have been more.

But alas I always look for a positive and although there are not many with Lukaku the latest to get injured, I think maybe we should move our focus onto the FA cup and play our strongest team for every game in that. It's been too long since we won a cup and whilst 4th place would be a nice little earner I think we don't realistically have the squad or money to compete in that league just yet.

Apart from Lukakus first 2 or 3 mths we have been light up front all season. Another 10/15 goal striker would have saw us seriously push for 4th. Too any games we have dominated without a cutting edge.

The summer will need to see some proper investment just to sustain the current team as the loanees are a big part of the improvement. Barry would need to take a pay cut, but possible, Lukaka and Delafeau aren't ever going to become permanent although there is talk of Barca loaning Delafeau out for another year.

Sure wouldn't it be great if it came down to Everton beating City to claim 4th and in turn also handing Liverpool the title!
I was very impressed with Everton today and I honestly hope they quailfy for the Champions League.

It would be some laugh and bring back the glory days of the 80's when Merseyside derby's decided where the title was going which makes a nice change from the last couple of decades when the Pool had crap defensive managers and we were just crap (crap managers/players/tactics/owners etc....)
I don't think you will need our help though Laoislad as I think you will take care of City and Chelsea at home yourselves!!

Arsenals run in is pretty straight forward looking, whereas Everton have some biggies albeit at home, but it'd be hard to see points not being dropped against Man City in particular.

To be honest Johnney it would be the Man Utd , Southampton and Hull games I would be more expecting us to drop points in as we have a pretty brilliant record against Man City at home. In the last 8 years we have beaten them 6 times (including when they won the title in 2012) , drawn once and lost once!

Totally deserved. Mustard has had some season for us. Probably my player of the year, though McCarthy has been brilliant too. This game on Saturday evening is going to be interesting. An Arsenal win tonight and 4th is gone. Spurs can still catch us...what a nightmare that would be...United can as well if they win their last 3 and we lose both of our remaining two. Our performance against the saints was easily the worst of the season. We have a great record against City and home form has been superb, but City will be chomping at the bit. Interesting indeed.

The plot thickens ... from Soccerway.com:

Council behind new Everton stadium

30 April 2014

Liverpool City Council have again vowed to support Everton with their proposed move to a new stadium.

The Premier League club are planning to leave Goodison Park and play their home games in a 50,000-seater stadium at a site that will also include new homes, education and health facilities.

Walton Hall Park is reportedly the preferred location, but the club have refused to confirm that is the case.

On Tuesday, Everton chief executive Robert Elstone said he has seen "signs" the council, who he described as a "key partner", are supporting the project.

And the body reacted on Wednesday by reiterating that they are behind the project, but are not in a position to pay for it.

A statement from Liverpool City Council read: "Following reports in the media today, we wish to reaffirm our commitment to working with Everton FC in relation to their new stadium proposals.

"As with all large-scale regeneration projects with the potential to create jobs and investment in Liverpool, the city council will look at ways it can support the wider regeneration scheme, but no firm options have been developed in terms of how or where this will take shape.

"This work is ongoing and we will announce the details of the location and support we will be offering once this has been further developed.

"However, we must stress that the city council is clearly not in a position to fund the costs of a new stadium.

"Any investment the council makes would be in a wider regeneration scheme, subject to a sound financial and economic rationale for doing so."

Elstone had spoken on Tuesday of the importance of the council's assistance in seeing the project through.

He said: "The key partner is Liverpool City Council. We're working very closely with them and they're being incredibly supportive.

"The public and private sector mix is important. Support from the public purse whether that's through grants or other forms of subsidy; and whether it's regional, national or European, we have to investigate all possibilities of securing public funding into the project.

"That’s one of the reasons why our scheme is so heavily focused on jobs and education and welfare; to essentially support and sustain those sorts of grants and subsidy moneys.

"We’ll need commercial partners alongside that to make the whole jigsaw fit together."

Good game. Strange atmosphere at Goodison, The Hart save and dzecko goal at start of second half proving decisive. But that was drama from start to finish. Will there be another twist? If city don't win it now, they don't have any bottle. Guaranteed 5th position for the toffees. Well done lads. Martinez a breath of fresh air. Great appointment and I am looking forward to next season already and a few city breaks in the Europa. Nil Satis...

Good finish for the toffs. Now it's a summer of Gaa and the world cup for a month. Happy days. Roberto has had a great first season. I'm optimistic for the years ahead. We will need to sign Lukaku or someone else who can rattle the onion 16 times. Will 20m be enough? Will he want to sign for us or does he want champions league...It's hard to know what lies ahead, but we'll need plenty of signings that is for sure.

Were any of ye over this year at a game?
I was lucky enough to go to the Arsenal home game with my 2 oldest kids (6 and 5) along with another lad with his 2 kids. Great day all round except Dublin beat Tyrone and we missed out on the league semis

I have to be honest though I was delighted Liverpool didn't win the league despite us playing well v City. They were probably the most entertaining team all year but with 2 brothers Pool fans you will have to excuse my anti Liverpool bias.
If you read the Liverpool forums after the Everton v Man City game they would soon change your mind as well.
Had they won it they probably would have got stronger but now the talk is will Suarez now move to  Madrid or somewhere else? If he does they'll not do as well next year.
Lukaku did well to score 16 goals as is the best striker we've had in years but my God he's got a brutal touch and doesn't like running too much. Unlike Naismith he's not a grafter and I'd be happy if we signed someone like Bony or Remy instead but can't see us having the funds as usual
I think Barkley is totally over-rated and is lucky he is going to the World Cup. He goes missing a lot in games but every so often has that moment of magic like the goal v Man Shitty
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: imtommygunn on May 14, 2014, 04:54:21 PM
Was at the spurs game. It was a poor enough game which should have been won only for Lukaku getting injured( which was kind of his own fault)

Having been at a good few Moyes games(probably 6 or 7) - and I'd have a lot of respect for what Moyes did during his time - I thought the standard of football was a step above what we had previously.  There's a lot more movement, a better standard of passing and the standard of the players in general seems to be that bit better. Mirallis not being so injury prone this year has been a massive bonus.

Lukaku I would agree is very very raw. He scores a lot but there's a lot of ball bounces of him as you say. Still I really hope we can get him.

Barkley is good. He dipped a bit more towards the end of the season. To me he was the reason Chelsea beat us ast Chelsea but he seemed to grow in confidence from the arsenal cup game when he did that great run for the goal. I thought how he picked himself up was a good sign.  IN the spurs game I went to he was a sub and the difference he made to the team was massive. He adds an attacking side very few midfielders do. Still a lot to learn mind you and hopefully doesn't suffer from the english hype bandwagon.

Over the year 5th was about right based on the squad but on the best 11 I think we're top 4. We just don't have the cover. The liverpool game was a blip but exposed that the likes of Alcaraz just isn't cutting it . The contribution of Distin cannot be overstated with the ground he covers. Two or three of those goals against LIverpool just wouldn't have happened with him there. 

Plusses...
Mirallis fitness
Naismith's improvement was fantastic - went from a nobody to a guy who should probably start, or at least play, every game.
Stones , Barkley and Coleman development.
Martinez and his positive attitude.

Minuses
need more cover
we should have beat liverpool the first game.
Martinez was great but against man city and palace he set us up wrong

I think there will be some pressure to sell some players this summer as there will be plenty come in.

It's been a quiet summer on the transfer front with our noisy neighbours spending crazy money again.

It looks like Lukaku is finally coming though  (http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Football/Premier+League/Everton/Transfer+News)which I am very relieved at.
Whilst at times he's a lazy sod and he doesn't like the long ball over the top he still manages to get a good goal ratio most seasons and I suppose unless for a disaster we'll end up making money on the guy when he wants to go

This young lad Besic  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhamed_Be%C5%A1i%C4%87)seems a decent player as well having marked Messi very well I believe in the WC. That's him, Barry, McCarthy and Gibson all bought now to replace Fellani. Not bad business. The way we allow our two full backs to bomb forward we need two good defensive MFs to mind the shop.

RM seems to be buying a lot of good young players and not just buying any old player just for the sake of it unlike the red shite  :o

McGeedy needs to get off to a flyer in the PL or a new attacking threat will be needed along with Lukaka, Miralles, Kone if he's fit, the big long Traore lad and Naismith who's a tryer but just lacking that finishing Everton need to suppliment the big lad.

I often read the threads on Toffeeweb and was amazed by the negative reaction after we beat QPR and then the huge positivity and expectation to beat Southampton away just cos they had loads of 1st players out.

At the start of the year I thought to myself and settle for coming top 10 if we can give the Europa a good rattle
We are doing that but if I'm to be totally honest I fear Martinez's honeymoon period is over
He had me in total awe of him last year but he sure is making a lot of strange decisions this year.
Lukaku can be class if given the right type of ball but he's a bit lazy and not good coming short with his back to goal.
Barkley to me can be great but again RM plays him out of position a lot
Baines and Coleman were so exciting last year but are so quiet this year. Injury? Team mark them better? Or RM's tactics

Anyway, 4th place WAS so wide open but with Manure and Spurs getting a decent run of late I think it's another season of trying to finish above the red shite and doing well in Europe. We got a decent draw anyway.

Embarrassed I didn't post about this before now. With all the shenanigans over the weekend, it slipped my mind. An outstanding Evertonian, and a great football man. And a gentleman as well in all his public dealings, and according to those who know him. He was a great leader for Everton, and I was very sad to hear of his passing. It brought back memories of those great mid-80s days when Everton and Liverpool were more than just rival neighbours, they were rivals for league titles. RIP Howard.

The squad has only got about 3 or 4 good players. Lukaku and Deulofeu are far better than the rest of the squad, Coleman is good, Kone decent enough. Apart from that they don't have any good players.

Still Everton have been my favourite team to watch this season, very entertaining games.

kone is useless, deulofeu is hot and cold but very promising but to say the likes of mccarthy, barkley, jagielka or baines to name a few arent good players shows a limited football knowledge on your part but then you've already shown that on the liverpool thread.

McCarthy is a waste of space. Risk free sideways passes is all he contributes.

Jagielka isn't much use at all. A journeyman defender.

Baines is useful going forward with his crosses, but he can't defend.

And Barkley is massively overhyped. He can run and shoot but that's about it. He's far too greedy, and has a tendency to put his head down and run into trouble. Not a good footballer at all in my opinion.


Lukaku, Deulofeu and maybe Coleman are the only players worth keeping.

Mccarthy is a great player critical to both ireland and everton.

You have some valid points on barkley mind.

Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: The Stallion on March 13, 2016, 08:15:13 PM
I am of the opinion that he was generally terrible throughout Ireland's qualifying campaign, and indeed for his whole International career to date.

On Lennon, he has pace but nothing else. Awful crosses, you can see Lukaku's understandable frustration with Lennon's delivery. Deulofeu has his weaknesses, but he's a much better player.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: imtommygunn on March 13, 2016, 08:28:00 PM
Mccarthy had not lived up to his club form for quite a while for ireland. In the germany home game he was superb. Really he suits a specific way of playing. Barry and him compliment each other at everton. For ireland whelan does not compliment him. When whelan doesn't play he plays a lot better but he has been very good in qualifying.

Deulofeu isn't worth a start for everton. Once full backs started marking him tightly and nipping at him he didn't want to know. If there was an offensive full back against him he wouldn't track back. He had a massive detrimental impact on coleman too. Lennon's final ball may be poor but he covers coleman and he covers his full back. Deulofeu is worth a sub role but it was noticeable he was going to come on last night just before the goal. Goal was scored and plug was pulled. Why? Because defensively everton would have struggled with coleman more or less double teamer.

Barry, McCarthy and Cleverly are really poor central midfielders, and this is one of the weakest areas in the Everton side. They need to prioritise getting a new keeper, coupleof central midfielders and a centre back. Howard is finished and Stones and Jagielka aren't very good.

You are way off the mark on mccarthy. Barry fits a specific system like everton's very well and has been very good this year. Everton tend to do a lot worse when mccarthy is not on too. They have a ready made quality midfielder in besic. If they played the best midfield quartet they would be ok.

Jagielka isn't fit enough this year with injuries but he is a good defender.

You are closer to the mark on stones and cleverly definitely mind you and have a point on barkley...

McCarthy does the job at Everton he's meant to do, break up the play and give the ball to someone else, remember a lad called Dunga doing the same for Brazil and he ended up lifting the world cup for Brazil and was derided by the english media as useless.
Horses for courses.
Barry is playing very well ATM, I'd have him ahead of Henderson and Joe Allen every day of the week. Besic was going well until his injury and has shown glimpses, having big Yaya in his back pocket of the first leg of the Capital One cup and was sadly missed in the second leg when Everton were overrun..

Lukaka was a bargain at £28M, no doubt considering some of the other donkeys bought for considerably more.

Stones and Barkley have great potential, but in both cases their decision making can be terrible at times, both need to learn about playing for the team and I'm not sure Martinez is the man to bring that to their game.

Squad wise Everton are healthy enough to be pushing for a top 4, just not consistent and defensively frail like all Martinez's teams.

McCarthy covers every blade of grass. I think he's a brilliant player. Most Evertonians love him. He does come in for a bit of stick for crab passing and going backwards, looking for the simple pass, but whenever he's out injured our results stink. Can he control a game like Keane did, no chance. He is not that type of player. But the abuse Dunphy fires his way is unbelievable.

I haven't been on this thread for ages and I can see The Stallion is back stirring up his hooves.

I laughed out loud when I read his go through the whole team more or less and say everyone was shite except Deulofeu, Lukaku and Seamy.

A lot of people thought Martinez was mad to spend £28M for Rom and look at him now. Most (not all) of RM's buys have been quite successful including Mori, Barry and recently Lennon.
I expected to see a lot more of Geri since Christmas but I have been shocked Bobby hasn't given his fellow countryman more of a run in recent weeks although Lennon has made that decision easier for him perhaps.
Geri though has 8 assists with Barkley next with 7.
At least we've not saw Howard or Kone for a good few weeks now so maybe Mr Stubborn is finally giving up on them too.

Barry has surprised me the most this year as last year I thought he played well at times but on other days he looked slow and a liability. This year he's been immense and his experience is crucial for quite a young team.
I'm also glad to see Jags back into the team but he can be out muscled too easy at times and isn't dominant enough the way Shawcross can be. If you look at our usual back 4 there are too many of them nicey nicey players and no hard men or defenders who take no shit. This is why I believe we often throw away leads or make silly defensive mistakes.

Our home record is a disgrace this year and whilst it has mainly been down to bad defending or lack of concentration you gotta point the finger at RM to some degree. Saying that what is weird is we are in the semi of the FA cup and have yet to concede a goal. Bobby will probably saying getting to 2 cup semifinals isn't a bad season and could be enough to save his job but everyone knows we've underachieved this year when you look at teams like Leicester, Spurs and even West Ham how well they've done
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: The Stallion on March 16, 2016, 08:16:24 PM
Barry and Lennon have been brutal in my opinion. Barry has no pace and all he does is foul players he manages to get close enough to (not many).

Lennon has nothing but pace. Lukaku repeatedly throws his arms up at the appalling service Lennon provides. Deulofeu is much better at creating chances for Lukaku.
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: imtommygunn on March 16, 2016, 10:06:50 PM
Barry, according to a lot of media, has been outstanding this year and seems to be a fan favourite too. I know what you mean on lennon but deulofeu was beginning to get bullied very easily and had questionable work rate. He deserves gametime but not 90 minutes and he wasn't even fit enough to last 90 minutes. He still has quite a bit of developing to do.

Incidentally barry playing with mccarthy is infinitely better than without as mccarthy makes up for barry's lack of pave.

The same thing is happening with the media hyping Barkley. Occasionaly he'll score a good goal, but he'll spend the rest of the game charging head down into trouble and losing possession. He has no awareness and is far too greedy.

You are right to an extent about barkley. I have seen him pass the ball out of play. He will develop if managed right though. Moyes would actually have been the right manager to develop him properly.

Gerrard sadly was very far from being not very good. If you are an everton fan you would have seen that all too many times over the years.

Post by: Fuzzman on March 21, 2016, 11:41:39 AM
Agreed and I've been slow to change my mind.

I mean to me Martinez has moved us on a level and our expectation is a lot higher now than it was with Moyes.
For years we were scraping and scratching with Moyes & BK buying cheap players and never beating the top 4 clubs.
Martinez changed that mindset to a degree and brought in some good players especially Lukaku. I could never have imagined Moyes taking that risk of spending so much money on a forward worried that it might not work. He was too fearful and negative minded.

Now however we've got the opposite type of manager who is so OTT positive that he believes his own shite talk and can't see when the team are underperforming and need a good kick in the arse.
I think Stones, Barkley, Deulofeu & Lukaku can be great players on their day when things are going well but they need discipline and a manager to be strict with them to both praise them but also give out to them.
All the talk where RM doesn't practise set pieces or sort out their defensive woes just beggars belief really

My patience has wore thin and whilst we could win the FA cup (remarkably not have conceded a goal yet) I think the team lacks leaders and a few hard men to stand up and be counted. Coleman and Barry are probably the only too that really would bust a gut to win at all costs. Even our captain, whilst a decent defender is too soft and easily bullied. Someone like Huth or Shawcross needed to put some fire in the belly. Baines is a complete push over these days and is more worried about his hair by all accounts.

How would I like to see as our new manager? I'm not sure. Its been such a weird season in the league.
How would have thought Raineiri would have made such an impact or did he just get lucky with Mahrez and Vardy doing so well this year. Their defence takes no nonsense and gets the ball forward much faster than we do.
Klopp too is having a strange 1st season with them nearly winning the league cup but having a real Jeykl and Hyde league campaign.
Hopefully with the new owner we can get someone more balanced in to sort us out defensively as I think we have some great attacking players

Any idea if Coleman can be back for Saturday? May struggle without him and Barry. That sending off could also be costly.

Everton wil regret not cashing in on Stones.  When the petro dollars chase young english players hands should be bitten.  Everton got 15 mill for Jack fcukin Rodwell !!

Don't forget Lescott as well......

Stones will still command big bucks come the summer, but unless Everton get rid of Bobbie and have a good manager in place by the early summer, expect to see an exodus of Lukaku, Stones (who I'd like to see stay) and possibly Coleman, Barkley, Mirallas and Delafeau.

There's still a decent team there, just Roberto hasn't a clue how to set them up to defend!

If anything Stones will have devalued this year though. He got dropped and has had a lot of bad press from fans etc especially due to gesturing them to calm down when he gave a particularly dodgy pass one game - really hasn't warmed people to him and made him look quite cocky.

Rooney, Lescott and Rodwell have been cashed in on but there has been a bit of money wasted too. I have no idea what is going on with this new signing Niasse but all reports are he doesn't even look like a footballer never mind a 13 million pound one.

That squad should be challenging for top four. Teams need to be organised to do well. Everton's stats at set pieces this year on either end of the pitch are about as bad as it gets which begs the question as to why this isn't being drilled into them.

lukaku has hardly broke sweat the past 2 months, thinks he's good to play for everton. i'd take whatever the highest bidder is and get someone in who wants to play for the club.

3 matches, 7 points still unbeaten.
Not a bad start to the season going into the international break.
Koeman has made us hard to score against with us only conceding 2 goals so far but scoring them is also proving difficult with Lukaku as our only decent striker.
We really need to buy one or 2 more strikers as Kone and Deulofeu not good enough up front.

Stekelenburg and Gueye seem to be doing very well

The lack of Irish players probably hampered their support levels in the 90s and 00s.

They are also probably the least commercialised club in the top half of the premier league, and that matters a lot nowadays

I was always surprised Koeman took to Barry due to his mobility. A major criticism this last few games has been of workrate which you won't be shy of with mcCarthy about. Apparently he is looking to leave which wouldn't be good for everton.

Post by: johnneycool on January 16, 2017, 08:55:43 AM
Everton seem to have stumbled on a formation that works for them.

Back three of Funes Mori, A Williams and the young lad Holgate, coupled with Baines and Seamy tacking down the wings.

The man/boy of the moment Davis, all action game supplemented the slower legs of Barry yesterday, but you'd see the likes of Gueye being the obvious replacement once he gets back.

Still think Barkley has a bit to do to be a regular further up the park, but was decent yesterday, Lukaku was bothersome and hit the target when the chance arose.

Mighty fortunate not to have conceded the penalty, but Sterlings reputation may have been a factor in the referees mind.

Probably get beat by Palace next day out though!
Title: Re: The official Everton FC Supporters thread
Post by: Fuzzman on January 16, 2017, 03:52:10 PM
Lukaku was just making sure it was going in but if he wanted to have stolen it he would have connected properly.

Everton are having a rather strange season as Koeman has changed quite a lot about how the team play and our personnel. We had 4 shots on target yesterday and scored all 4. Delighted for the new young lads and was surprised Koeman has changed his mind about playing youngsters.

They have beaten both Arsenal and Man City at home now and drew with ManU and Spurs. They were a bit unlucky to lose to Liverpool yet they have lost away to Burnley, Watford and Bournemouth.
Had they have beaten Hull at the end of December then that win yesterday would have been four in a row.

7th is as good as we can hope for I think as I can't see us catching the 6 above us. There are only 5 points between 2nd and 6th and if Costa leaves any of those top 6 could challenge for the title.
I think we need another scoring midfielder as Mirallas hasn't been doing it so far although he looked lively yesterday.

What a game that was at the weekend!
Just shows what Lukaku is capable of when he's in the right frame of mind and gets good supply.
Saying that Bournemouth tend to play quite open football as Howe is a bit like Martinez in that he likes his teams to play out from the back.

I must say back at the start of December before the Arsenal game I was fearing the worst.
We were playing very poorly and not scoring any goals apart from Rom but with the 3 at the back, Coleman seems to getting forward much more and creating and scoring chances.
Then to get knocked out of both cups so early it was as if the season was over with nothing to play for. However, if Utd win the league cup and they or someone else from the top 6 wins the FA cup then 7th place will be good enough to get into Europe again like last season.

We're top of the current form table along with Spurs with 14 points from 18, having scored 17 goals and conceded 6. Lookman seems to be a great little player with such great skill and pace. A lot better than Deulofeu in my opinion and I think he'll score more goals as well.
Only 6 points behind Liverpool now who are in freefall at the moment which as a blue with red brothers is great to see ;-)

I'm not sure about Williams and Mori though as I think they still make too many mistakes. Kone had a great game for Everton reserves, sorry Sunderland at the weekend and I wonder will we be back in for him again or Keane from Burnley. No doubt the big clubs will be watching Lukaku very closely and be tempted to make another offer.
I think he will go at some stage but the question is when. He knows he's always gonna be the top dog with Everton whereas at Chelsea or another big club he'll be under a lot more pressure to perform and work harder.

The funding sounds complicated but it certainly looks like it's going to happen.
Hopefully we continue to improve on the field as well and are fighting to be in the top 4 with the big boys again.
It sounds like Moshiri's is a shrewd businessman.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Everton have taken a huge step towards leaving Goodison Park after 125 years with the news that the club have a land-purchase agreement with Peel Group for Bramley-Moore Dock.

Additionally, a funding mechanism has been worked out with Liverpool Council whereby Everton will fully fund the stadium but with LCC as guarantors of the required loans for the estimated £300m project which would potentially see the Blues kicking off in their new ground in 2021.

The news comes following days of mounting speculation that today would be the day that confirmation of a successful agreement for the potentially iconic waterfront site for a new stadium being struck. Everton's stadium at Bramley-Moore would form part of Peels' £5bn Liverpool Waters regeneration scheme which promises to transform the waterfront along Regent Road north of Prince's Dock while the LCC-backed Ten Streets initiative hopes to regenerate the derelict section along Great Howard immediately to the east.

Everton are believed to have negotiated a price of around £22.5m for the site on Liverpool's north docks with commencement of construction dependent on planning permission, the application for which will be submitted either later this year or early in 2018, and the funding being in place. The club's business plan provides for them staying at Goodison until the end of the 2020-21 season.

A full announcement from the Council via the LiverpoolExpress website outlined the creation of a "special purpose vehicle" whereby LCC would guarantee the loans, receive a security fee (reported to be around £4m a year) for its trouble and take out a 40-year lease on the site from the funder that they would then sub-lease to Everton. The club could then have the option of acquiring a leasehold interest in the stadium.

The arrangement does not involve any capital from the council but it allows Everton to secure funding for the project from a wider spectrum of lenders and most likely at significantly lower interest rates than if they were to go it alone as a higher-risk entity. The initial cost analysis is based on a 50,000-capacity stadium but Blues CEO Robert Elstone insists the final details have yet to be decided and that supporters will be included in a full consultation.

Everton are believed to have negotiated a price of around £22.5m for the site on Liverpool's north docks with commencement of construction dependent on planning permission, the application for which will be submitted either later this year or early in 2018, and the funding being in place. The club's business plan provides for them staying at Goodison until the end of the 2020-21 season.

A full announcement from the Council via the LiverpoolExpress website outlined the creation of a "special purpose vehicle" whereby LCC would guarantee the loans, receive a security fee (reported to be around £4m a year) for its trouble and take out a 40-year lease on the site from the funder that they would then sub-lease to Everton. The club could then have the option of acquiring a leasehold interest in the stadium.

The arrangement does not involve any capital from the council but it allows Everton to secure funding for the project from a wider spectrum of lenders and most likely at significantly lower interest rates than if they were to go it alone as a higher-risk entity. The initial cost analysis is based on a 50,000-capacity stadium but Blues CEO Robert Elstone insists the final details have yet to be decided and that supporters will be included in a full consultation.

Remember when this was a certainty for us toffees!!! http://www.geocities.ws/evertonia.geo/new_goodison_park.html
I'll wait for planning permission to go through and contractors are appointed before I get too excited!!! ;D

The funding sounds complicated but it certainly looks like it's going to happen.
Hopefully we continue to improve on the field as well and are fighting to be in the top 4 with the big boys again.
It sounds like Moshiri's is a shrewd businessman.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Everton have taken a huge step towards leaving Goodison Park after 125 years with the news that the club have a land-purchase agreement with Peel Group for Bramley-Moore Dock.

Additionally, a funding mechanism has been worked out with Liverpool Council whereby Everton will fully fund the stadium but with LCC as guarantors of the required loans for the estimated £300m project which would potentially see the Blues kicking off in their new ground in 2021.

Funding structured this way is relatively common for projects like this that give a lot of regeneration/community benefit. Good news for Everton,  they needed to move to another stadium to try and get to the next level where they are genuinely challenging for the top 4 annually.

koeman having a real dig at martin o'neill in the press conference today...

Angry Ronald Koeman Turns Up To Press Conference With Statement Criticising Martin O'Neill

All last week in the build-up to Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Wales, the expectation was that James McCarthy would not be available for the game.

Roy Keane said on the Tuesday before the game that the midfielder was highly doubtful for the encounter. So, it was surprising to see him in Ireland's initial starting line-up for the match.

McCarthy would suffer a recurrence of a hamstring injury in the warm-up and be replaced in the starting team by David Meyler.

Over recent times, the relationship between Ireland management and that of McCarthy's club Everton has undoubtedly been rancorous. Various barbs have been thrown back and forth between Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane and Ronald Koeman.

That continued on Friday when Koeman read out a pre-prepared statement during a press conference ahead of Saturday afternoon's Merseyside derby.

ADVERTISING

Already today there had been reports that Irish management called 'total rubbish' suggestions by Koeman that they had ignored the advice of their own medical team by naming McCarthy in the starting line for the game against Wales.

Koeman was not letting that line go though as he claimed O'Neill and Co. had failed to protect the player.

James had an injury when he reported for Ireland duty last week. Our medical team made the Ireland medical team aware of this of course.

Everton's medical team advised extreme caution, not only due to the current injury but to the previous injuries too. The assessment by the Ireland medical team was that it would be a high risk for James to play against Wales.

But James, of course, is strong and decided to play for his country. So when asked if he was fit to play he said he felt he was fit and he was selected to start the game by the Ireland manager who in my opinion in this instance was not protecting the player.

Clearly, James was not fit to play. He had trained only for two days with Ireland and he broke down during the warming up.

All these circumstances – he played only one game from the start in 2017 and he did not play for three weeks before the Wales game – mean in my opinion he would need one full week of training sessions with the team to be declared fit.

I spoke to James and told him 'you need to take responsibility of this'.
Koeman went on to say that further conversations between him and McCarthy were private and that the club, rather than him personally, would be involved in any discussions with the FAI.

A fully fit james mccarthy would definitely have started the merseyside derby tomorrow especially with morgan schneiderlin being out injured. a fit james mccarthy has always done a good job for everton, unfortunately he's spent too much time on the treatment table. Thats why I think he might move on in the summer.
Scheiderlin, coleman, funes mori and mccarthy are big misses for tomorrow and for the rest of the season.

In the last derby everton were well on top until he had to go off to be fair. He has moved to cover now but would do a good job at a premier league club.

Worried gareth barry will start now. Pace could be an issue as jagielka has to play too and has slowed this year.

the sun newspaper really is just scum. who buys this shit...


Merseyside Police are investigating allegations that a newspaper article about Everton midfielder Ross Barkley constitutes a "racial hate crime".

Barkley, 23, was punched in a Liverpool bar last weekend in what his lawyer described as an "unprovoked attack".

In an article on Friday, Sun columnist Kelvin MacKenzie compared Barkley - who has a grandfather born in Nigeria - to a "gorilla at the zoo".

Police confirmed they were investigating the "full circumstances".

MacKenzie targeted both England international Barkley and the city of Liverpool in the article - which has since been taken off The Sun website - saying:

Barkley is "one of our dimmest footballers", also calling him "thick".
His eyes make him "certain not only are the lights not on, there is definitely nobody at home", adding: "I get a similar feeling when seeing a gorilla at the zoo."
Men with similar "pay packets" in Liverpool are "drug dealers" and in prison.
Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson told BBC Sport he reported the article to the police for a "racial slur".

Speaking to BBC Sport, Anderson said: "Not only is it racist in a sense that he is of mixed-race descent, equally it's a racial stereotype of Liverpool. It is racist and prehistoric."

Anderson later tweeted to say he had reported the article to Merseyside Police and the Independent Press Standards Organisation.

Alongside the article, The Sun published adjoining pictures of Barkley and a gorilla on their website with the caption "Could Everton's Ross Barkley represent the missing link between man and beast?" The picture was later removed.

MacKenzie was editor of The Sun when it published a front-page article headlined 'Hillsborough: The Truth' in the aftermath of the 1989 disaster at Sheffield Wednesday's football stadium.

The article claimed Liverpool fans were to blame for the tragedy, in which 96 people died. MacKenzie apologised in 2012.

Last year's landmark Hillsborough inquests recorded that the 96 fans were unlawfully killed and that Liverpool supporters at the FA Cup semi-final had played no role in causing the tragedy.

This Saturday, 15 April, marks the 28th anniversary of the disaster.

Burnley midfielder Joey Barton, who was an Everton youth player, tweeted: "Those comments about Ross Barkley, a young working-class lad, are disgusting. Then add in the fact he is mixed race! It becomes outrageous."

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore tweeted: "Implied racism at its finest."

A Sun spokesperson said: "Columnists are supposed to have strong opinions that provoke debate among the readers. However their views do not necessarily reflect those of the newspaper."

Football's equality and inclusion organisation Kick It Out said they had received complaints about the "insulting and offensive" comments.

"We will be contacting Everton and the PFA about their responses in providing support to Ross and his family," they said.

BBC Sport has contacted Everton and Barkley's representatives for comment.

excellent news. well done Everton.


Everton have banned the Sun "from all areas of its operation" after the newspaper published "appalling and indefensible" allegations about Ross Barkley and the people of Liverpool.

The article, written by columnist Kelvin MacKenzie, appeared on Friday.

MacKenzie was suspended after comparing the midfielder, whose grandfather was born in Nigeria, to a "gorilla".

He also wrote that men with similar "pay packets" to Barkley in Liverpool were "drug dealers".

Everton said in a statement: "The newspaper has to know that any attack on this City, either against a much respected community or individual, is not acceptable."

Merseyside Police are investigating whether MacKenzie's comments constitute a "racial hate crime".

The Sun apologised "for the offence caused" and added that it was "unaware of Barkley's heritage".

In a statement of his own, MacKenzie reiterated the latter sentiment, adding that it was "beyond parody" to describe the column as "racist".

In February, Liverpool banned Sun journalists from its grounds over the newspaper's coverage of the Hillsborough disaster.

This Saturday, 15 April, marks the 28th anniversary of the disaster.

'The people's club have listened to the people'

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson had led calls for Everton to ban the newspaper and he spoke with Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright on Saturday.

"Today of all days it's good news, " Anderson told BBC Sport. "We at Everton have always been proud of the fact that we have supported Liverpool FC and their fans through this.

"Everton prides itself on being called the people's club, they have listened to the people and I am delighted with how they have reacted. All credit to Bill Kenwright, he spoke to me this morning and understood that people had strong feelings on it."

Anderson had called for fans to protest at today's Premier League game at Goodison Park against Burnley.

But he now says that is not necessary, adding: "Everton have responded in a positive way. We will today remember and pray for those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster."

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore tweeted: "As we always knew. The People's Club. Nil Satis, Nisi Optimum. Thank you Everton, thank you."

Fwiw, you don't need to prove racist intent in a questionable racist statement in order for that statement to be judged racist.
But it would be wise to look at the context.

One question is what did McKenzie intend by comparing Ross to an ape?
He's saying that he's not human, below a human, dehumanize the target as if to indicate that being a non human is the problem. That why black people were historically  compared to apes/monkeys and still are. It became part of the everyday language of racists and slave trade apologists.

Imo, the racist tag still applies in this case even if McKenzie was unaware that it was in the public domain that Ross could  have declared for Nigeria, due to his family blood ties. McKenzie used the traditional racist put-down of black people and applied it to what he probably thought was a lowly scouser. I think we can reasonably infer that McKenzie is dehumanising  by association, equating a lowlife scouser to a lowlife black person by trying to dehumanise Ross with the  ape comparison.


Here is an example of context, how a word could sound racist if you ignore the vital importance of context.
Recently an Australian pundit who likened a development in the play by Venus Willams to a  guerilla effect (tactic). UnfortunatEly for him, an outraged public thought he said gorilla and context was totally diminished as a value by which we understand the spoken language, it was replaced by ignorant blind emotion.

Yes we have all these laws and definitions around topics like racism, sexism etc where someone simply has to be offended in a certain manner for it to be that manner of offence. But there was a lot of stuff in his article that was highly distasteful and a lot of stuff where there can be no ambiguity that was pretty disgusting to stick in a newspaper column. But look guys like this are writing articles like this is titles like the Sun because there is a demand among readers for this type of crap. It says a lot about a section of the GB public that this passed through the editorial process as something that was deemed suitable consumption for their target audience.

Who cares where the money is coming from as long as we are showing ambition by not being scared to pay £25M+ for decent players now rather than our old attitude of ahh that's far too dear. He's not worth that!

I'm delighted we're getting these deals done early and not just talking about it for weeks. Klaasan was Ajax's captain last year and their 2nd top scorer. With all the defensive midfielders we have we badly needed a scoring midfielder.

Hopefully Barkley will stay and fight for his place but I reckon Rom will definitely leave.
I don't think this Niang lad is that great though from what the Milan fans were saying on their discussion boards
He has only scored 29 goals in his 157 game club career to date, a worse record than Niasse, yet loads of clubs seem interested in him.

I'd much rather this Sandro lad who looks to have it all but I think he's taking his time and looking around to see who's interested in him before he decides where he wants to go to. At £6M he would be a steal.

thats it in a nutshell, barkley has shown flashes of brillance but then can disappear in other games. because he's a local lad, all everton fans are desperate for him to succeed but as you said he's 23 now and we probably havent seen him push on the way we all hoped.
its got to the stage now that if he moves, everton fans will be disappointed because 'he's one of our own' but most realise there's players out there with better quality that could take us to the next level. if he signs new contract...great, if he doesnt...ship him out, simple as.

I'd say most of the local fans would want him to stay and to come good but if you're more ruthless like Koeman is I think then you would probably let him go as he's doesn't seem to be reaching the level we all think he can. Maybe it's because of the way we play or the lack of movement ahead of him.
Del Ali certainly has better players around him and Kane shows much more movement and work rate than Lukaku does so maybe it's not all his own fault.

I'd be happy for him to stay but don't think he's an automatic starter any more. He doesn't score enough goals in my eyes and for such a big lad he should be winning a lot more headers also.
I get the feeling he wants to move on as he feels the pressure from the fans and when he loses the ball there is always that Tut feeling.
He might do better away from the home town pressure

with another 2 quality signings in today, michael keane 25million and sandro ramirez for 5.6million, thats the guts of 100million spent already with a few more being heavily linked (giroud and rooney). good to see the club are showing plenty of ambition and the fans are already looking forward to the new season.

Yeah it's exciting times for Everton and we're finally showing we can compete financially with the bigger boys. In my head Lukaku is leaving but I'd not be overly surprised if he stayed one more season, especially if Conte isn't that pushed on getting him and no other club interested in spending 90-100M.
I think Everton have made it clear they don't need to sell him to fund these others deals so Rom could be frustrated at being priced out of a move.

Prices are high for decent players now but I've always said we need to pay a little over the odds to get decent players to come to us over CL clubs and clubs in London.

I've mixed feelings on Rooney returning but if the wages aren't too high then surely his experience can benefit the younger players that are coming through.

Mixed feelings about Rooney too. If he goes out and busts his balls, which he hasn't done for a while then he might be worth the grief that comes with him. If he acts the maggot when Koeman doesn't play him when and where he wants to play it might get messy!

That's why I was thinking when Man U came into the picture!! I think Rom would prefer to go to Chelsea, Man City, Bayern etc. If the agent wants his cut then we should hold out for at least £95m for Rom.

Hope Rooney does well at Everton. As for Lukaku, he probably knew he was always going to move to a massive club and always had that in the back of his mind. Let's see if he can live up to it now. I think he will.

75million plus add ons is a great deal for a player who doesnt want to play for the club. Lukaku was a great goalscorer but he always thought he was bigger than the club. Time to move on and get more players in who want to play for us.

Like Wayne Rooney..
yeah like wayne rooney, if koeman thinks he can still do a job then thats good enough for me.

This the same lad who spent last season fighting with Martin O'Neill like a spoilt child?
koeman was completely correct
if the club medical staff say a player is injured, then he's injured
A player who is called up for intl duty and is allegedly injured, is mandated to turn up and allow himself to be inspected by the intl team doctor. The intl team doctor has the final say on the fitness of the player. The club's medical staff have no say inside this 5 day window, unless consulted.
The reason for this is that clubs have tried to pull too many fast ones in the past. Trap demanded all players turn up for inspection regardless of what was faxed through to him.

Don't know if this  reason works but apparent Rooney coming  back to everton makes financial sence.  Even before shirt sales.

 Wayne Rooney is costing Everton £16.64 million in wages plus two £4 million bonus payments - £24.64 million for two seasons. Plus the £10 million that he has knocked off Lukaku's price. That takes him up to £34.64 million which is still £360k cheaper than Andy Carroll so in Merseyside transfer terms a bargain.

I see Everton's bid for Gyfi Sigurdsson has entered the serious negotiating stage.
Possibly £44m?
I think it would be a great move for both. Gylfi's a class act, his all round ability at this level is proven beyond doubt, he's just about reaching his peak and now can move his game up a few notches with better players around him.

They beat FC Twente 0-3 yesterday with Lennon scoring one.
This day next week is the first leg of the round 3 qualifier for Europa.

Still no talk of a new main striker coming in. I hope Rooney wasn't their main plan. I'm glad he's back and think he will do well but not as our main No 1 striker.

class act again by the club.....the peoples club'.
 

In celebration of the life of Bradley Lowery, Everton Football Club is hosting a charity football match at Goodison Park on Sunday 3 September.

The charity game has been arranged in conjunction with the Lowery family and the Bradley Lowery Foundation and, with the assistance of celebrity football organiser Sellebrity Soccer, will see a host of celebrities lace up their boots for the match which will benefit the Bradley Lowery Foundation and Everton in the Community.

Young Sunderland supporter Bradley won the hearts of football fans around the world during his brave battle against neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer, before his sad passing this month aged six.

Gemma Lowery, mum of Bradley, said: "I appreciate Sellebrity Soccer putting in the hard work to get the football match arranged to raise funds for the Bradley Lowery Foundation. As always, Everton has been amazing in letting it happen at Goodison Park. The support is fantastic."

The match has been inspired by Bradley’s love of football and the Club is proud to be able to host the fixture. Evertonians formed a special bond with the youngster, initially during Everton's match at Sunderland in September 2016, and then when he was a guest at Goodison Park for two matches in January and February this year.

He accompanied the Everton team onto the pitch ahead of the Blues’ game against Manchester City in January whilst wearing his Sunderland kit – and was also the Black Cats’ mascot for the Everton versus Sunderland fixture in February.

Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright said: “There’s little that I could ever add to the tributes to Bradley, that have already been fulsome throughout the world of football – and onwards. I didn’t know him for long. But from the second he walked out onto the pitch with his beloved Sunderland Football Club against us, I felt an overwhelming “Blue” need to support him. Farhad and my Everton colleagues immediately supported that need.

“Everyone at Everton feels honoured to support this match to celebrate the short life of one of football’s all-time greats - There’s Only One Bradley Lowery.”

The celebrity fixture will be played on Sunday 3 September, kicking off at 3pm, and will feature a host of celebrities.

Last season I was all on for bringing in Ciggysson but I am not so sure any more.
I mean back then we had lots of good central midfielders but not many who would score or set up many goals.
Now we've got Klaassen, Davis, Rooney, Sandro along with Lookman and Bolasie to come back.
I still think he's a great player but £50M is a lot for a player who might not play every week. Would you maybe play him alongsie Klaassen in a 4 man midfield?
Still Moshiri must know we can afford to bring him in and hopefully still get a striker.

I'm more concerned about are we gonna bottle it in signing a top quality striker and just settle with Rooney, Sandro and young Calvert-Lewin.
I'd like to see someone like Giroud or even Edin Dzeko as they are proven goal scorers whereas I think it's a risk trying someone like Moussa Dembele who was great in Scotland but not so great with Fulham before that.

Poor game all in although Sandro looks like he could make a go of it when he came on.

I like Koeman as a manager but you have to wonder about some of his choices.
Why is he playing Calvert-Lewin out on the right side and how he rates Martina I really don't know. He's signed him twice before I think.

Rooney didn't play that well and Mirallas was rubbish again. Early days of course and they sat deep and defended well. Thought lookman and Sandro should have been on much earlier

Point gained or opportunity to get 3 points lost?? Thought we didn't put enough pressure on them when they had 10 men. We were defending well though and Holgate was superb apart from that one costly mistake. Frustrating to only draw at etihad, although I would have taken a point beforehand.

Have a bad feeling about the game tonight. There will be a very hostile crowd I'd say when ye see what they were at over at Goodison. Id imagine Koeman will come to park the bus and frustrate them with a back 5 and 3 defensive midfielders.

Could go to extra time. Will watch it in the Mercantile with the Goodison Blues supporters club.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/EvertonRepublicIreland/

We really need to get a decent striker before the window closes otherwise Siggy will have all this skill but nobody to hit it to.
Hopefully Sandro is fit to play some part tonight.

Anyone got tickets for Sunday? In Croker I mean not Goodison.

That was impressive from Everton considering going a goal down but I suppose the unworldly retort from Gylfi settled any nerves
Ronny knows set piece specialists and I'd say in the EPL, after Erikson comes Gylfi, but in the overall game, Gylfi  can hold his own against the best. I'd hope Ronny doesn't shove him out on the flanks like what happened to him at Spurs.

if everton dont beat burnley on sunday the pressure on koeman will be unbearable. The fans are restless and alot are calling for his head.
