    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    If we are looking at anyone from Huddersfield would have thought it would be billings. Has been decent for them fits the profile of young and low wages. My only thought was that he is a bit one paced and as others have said we need to add pace and athleticism. Would be an upgrade on the wage...

    Match Thread Fulham v Everton; Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    As has already been said that was just entirely predictable today. Massive chance to gain ground on the teams above and we totally ‘Evertoned’ it. Although I like the talk of bringing in younger players with high talent we still need a horrible nasty enforcer who will chop people going past and...

    Everton Youth Teams Thread

    I would have thought that at any other time in the past 20 years you would be right and that we would keep him and play him. Everton have usually done well with blooding young defenders early.... just think his game time next year will be limited and it would be better for him to play 40 games...

    Everton Youth Teams Thread

    Think he is a shoe in Eggs. The fact that he is training with the first team at the minute Inthink shows that they like him. Would think pre season, new contract and championship loan for the lad will be how we see it go for next season.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I would imagine that Gomes is done and hopefully Zouma too but I don’t think we will have the likes of Neres wrapped up in a bow and announced the day the window opens. Our wages to income ratio is ridiculous and until we get rid of some wages I can’t see many being announced. Yes Williams...

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Brands will have to work serious magic to get Aaron’s here mate. As I have said previously we have definitely scouted him, however so have Spurs, Arsenal and Juve have scouted both Norwich fullbacks this season. Ironically their scout who I play footy with reckons last week was the worst he had...

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    One of the lads I play footy with is a scout for Norwich and reckons there are loads of clubs looking at both full backs, including us Arsenal and Juve

    Good tonight.

    2018/19 Tom Davies

    Much better tonight. Mugged Fernandinho off a few times and played some nice 1 touch stuff. Did also give the ball away cheaply at times but did try and keep us on the front foot. That system tonight suits us much better and we look much more balanced without Gylfi in there slowing things down.

    2018/19 Kieran Dowell

    Agree with you Eggs a classy player with a wand of a left foot but you have to think this loan is make or break for his Everton career. If he doesn’t succeed this time round you would have to think he will have to leave and drop down to get his start. Had high hopes for Kieron but just hasn’t...

    2018/19 Kieran Dowell

    Made up he has gone to a team wanting to play football rather than going up to Scotland where everyone would be looking to chop him as soon as he gets on the ball. Shame we couldn’t have gotten a loan abroad a la Lookman because think Dowell would thrive in the Dutch or German leagues. Really...

    5pm announcement

    Bit underwhelming that. Not saying we should have started at 70k or anything but we should at least be starting at the same capacity as the pit. We have had precious few bragging rights over the past few years and this was an opportunity for the club to score an easy win and it feels like an...

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    Big fan of the changes Silva has made in general but there were a few things that concerned me last night. Firstly we didn’t look like we were prepared to scrap and as such we hardly won any second balls. We allowed Watford to bully us and on the most part rolled over to them. Thought the ref...

    2018/19 Michael Keane

    Much better this season but Bit early to be visiting the vaults, much better this season and has done very well coming back from a nasty injury. Still think that Zouma being next to him and being able to cover his lack of pace has been key. I am worried about what is going to happen when we...

    2018/19 Kurt Zouma

    Zouma has to continue to play and although Keane has played very well this season it has to be Keane that Mina replaces if when there is a drop in form. Mina and Keane at the back would mean that we have to drop the back four 10 yards further back because neither has the pace to recover if a...
