Quick question for ed25 how have everton been getting on in the transfer window have they strengthened if so is it in the right areas and how do you think you will do in the coming season and I wish you luck in 36 of the coming league fixtures.

{Ed025's Note - we have not done a great deal up to now berg, lossl and delph have come in but we have trimmed the playing staff with quite a lot of fringe players going out, we are desperate for a CF and CH and we expect to get a couple of deals over the line now that the ACON and copa america have finished mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2019 07:06:28
Gomes permanently signed too? A top striker and let richarlison play from wide. Do you see delph bought in as a possible gueye replacement? Does he still want to leave?

{Ed025's Note - yes har gueye wants to go, i forgot about gomes who i think will be an important player for us but zouma will be a big loss though mate, delph will hopefully do a similar job to your own milner and is quite versatile, and for the money i think he is quite a shrewd signing..

21 Jul 2019 08:17:35
Yeah for less than 10mil in today's market is good business. I feel this transfer is one he should have made at least 3 years ago. If he got proper regular midfield role he might just thrive.

20 Jul 2019 21:36:15
What’s the deal with Van den Berg’s international clearance. Why is it taking longer than usual?

{Ed002's Note - Because he is also still a child.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 12:04:05
Se no comments about the game vs Dortmund. Brewster getting goals which will build confidence. Maybe just maybe he will be the next youngster breaking into the first team. If he can put in the effort like Trent has and keep his attitude in tact then we have he will make it.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 12:20:36
That penalty was superb. Friendly or not, to place it with that much power and precision in the top corner is confidence and technique. Nice finish from Wilson too. He has a knack of knowing to be in the right place at the right time, had a good game, didn’t dwell on the ball and made good decisions in possession. And Ox was brilliant too, beginning of the window thought we needed to sign an attacking midfield, turns out he was there all the time. I’m looking forward to seeing him get some minutes this year.

{Ed025's Note - all your players are fantastic 6times..you will obviously walk the league this season with that array of talent, they are all world class and never have a bad game and what about that penalty...to be able to beat a keeper from 12 yards is outstanding ability...your very lucky mate..

20 Jul 2019 12:33:41
With any luck Everton might buy a competent keeper ed025? I hope not though, as I’m convinced that Pickford is the man for job. As long as the job is gifting soft goal ;)

Joking aside. We’re good enough to compete for the title, that’s not something we’ve been able to say for years. We’ll see if we are after 38 games.

{Ed025's Note - we will 6times..

20 Jul 2019 12:45:10
Ed0025, Brewster still learning his trade or Calvert leading the Everton attack this season?

At least LFC are in a position to give Brewster a chance while Mane, Firmino and Salah continue to rack up the goals :-)

{Ed025's Note - i have not seen enough of brewster to form an opinion max, but a lot of you are bigging him up before he has actually done anything mate, thats a lot of pressure for a young lad..

20 Jul 2019 13:26:49
Nah, have not seen anyone bigging Brewster up.

He is having a good preseason and seems to have a level head.

Calvert on the other hand might have to spearhead Everton's attack this coming season while Brewster has a chance to prove himself in a squad on the up.

Paves the way for Brewster to reach the next level.

{Ed025's Note - he is the second coming according to a lot of reds fans on here max, which is unusual for your lot..you dont usually over hype your players do you?.. :)

20 Jul 2019 13:29:51
friendlies mean nothing, we have already been informed here that Klopp is looking for an attacking player because Kent, Wilson etc are deemed not good enough. 3 weeks left in the transfer window too, Wilson and Kent will be playing elsewhere this season.

20 Jul 2019 14:31:35
Speaking about young strikers coming through man united have an absolute diamond on there hands with Greenwood, he will do damage .

20 Jul 2019 15:11:53
Lol Hailstones.

UTD need to get rid of Lukaku before giving Greenwood a chance mate.

20 Jul 2019 15:29:55
Trust me he will make his presence known this season, lukaku has one foot out the door, an if he stays they will have an unhappy player .

20 Jul 2019 15:38:42
Yeah which decreases Lukaku's value if he does not feature.

Greenwood is playing in preason. In fact, he might even struggle to get playing time with Rashford being first choice with Lukaku on the bench.

{Ed001's Note - Lukaku is 'injured'.}

20 Jul 2019 16:03:09
Lol Ed001, Lukaku 'excluded' from the United 1st team squad this coming season and some youngster taking his place. I bet Longstaff is going to take up Pgba's place seeing that UTD have priced him out of a move.

Beggars believe. UTD have dug a massive hole for themselves. Oh well.

20 Jul 2019 16:06:32
A lot of people are bigging him up. Mcateer said he's like Rushie and fowler, others are saying pace like Owen. The most impressive so far about him is the interplay in the small spaces quick one twos, good close control. That penalty was excellent too. I also get the impression that the boy has a lot of confidence in himself.

20 Jul 2019 13:43:12
Klopp and the coaches will be in charge of Brewster Ed025.

I doubt he is in a position to start any competitve matches but with Sturridge leaving he will have a chance to fight it out with Origi who will also be a sub this coming season.

Brewster will surely have a run in the Cup games as the Liverpool 1st team has a hectic schedule ahead with EPL and Champions League.

Perfect chance for Brewster to settle into a squad which has just won the Champions League.

Calvert to score 20+ this season and who as backup Ed025?

Brewster in a good spot to prove himself. That is all I am saying.

{Ed025's Note - i really hope he does max, hopefully DCL will be a back up striker for the new CF coming in, i like dominic but he is a work in progress still mate..

20 Jul 2019 14:28:04
Have too say ed you said richarlison was world class, also gomes is the 2nd coming of jesus practically, then you under hyped salah an fabihno also Gini an others, bit tit for tat isn't it mate, we sometimes piss in the wind .

{Ed025's Note - and thats why my shoes always look shiny hailstones, i have never said richarleson is world class by the way but i am a big fan of gomes, its my job to give your team a bit of stick though mate otherwise people will think im a closet red, and i dont take well to insults.. :)

20 Jul 2019 21:44:28
To be fair to Ed025 he’s been very critical of Richarlison. Particularly his inability to manage the effects of gravity.

{Ed025's Note - i wont defend divers of any team 6times, they are ruining the game mate..

20 Jul 2019 21:58:51
‘And that’s why my shoes always look shiny’.

Best comeback I’ve read on here. got to love ya ed25, just keep ‘em coming. And keep handing out the stick mate - we all need a bit to keep our feet on the ground.

{Ed025's Note - all just a bit of fun and banter nick, my god we need it after all that AFCON and copa america crap, im turkeying for a decent game of footy mate and cant wait for the season to start..

21 Jul 2019 00:42:06
Hahaha, trust me ed I definitely know u are a blue mate the vibes are too strong, an by the way gomes is a class act on an off the field, could potentially be world class an Ritchie is still very young an raw, looks like use are getting rid of shxte an trying too get some quality in .

{Ed025's Note - thats the plan hailstones, but everton have a history of shooting themselves in the foot mate so we will just have to see..

19 Jul 2019 22:30:05
Ah well Saido, at least you've got a champions league medal to take the sting out of it.

Agree6 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 21:11:40
Have a feeling the Havertz link may be legit, but Liverpool may look to sign the player this season, for next season, let him have another year at Levekusen, they won't sell this season after losing Brandt, and if liverpool get him now at £80m then he goes on to having another fantastic season, they've easily saved themselves £30-£40m.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 22:12:36
We'll add that to your long list of random guesses.

19 Jul 2019 07:52:59
What would be a great season for us next season and realistically what can we achieve.

I would say the world club thing will have a huge impact on our season.

My prediction.

88 points in league.

Second to city.

Champs league or fa cup or carabao cup is a realistic possibility but only one of them.

I would pre than happily take a trophy a year.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 10:01:32
If we can convert some of those draws to wins, then anything is possible. I think some dynamism from Ox might help in these games as he’s prepared to turn and run at defenders from centre midfield, he might not have the passing range of the City midfield but he has the drive and energy.,

19 Jul 2019 13:18:44
It could have a massive impact on our season and we need to be lucky with injuries to challenge city for the league. don't forget that city have lost Kompany and who knows how this may effect them defensively because he was brilliant in the run in.

19 Jul 2019 14:07:27
Happy with number 19 and/ or number 7

Happy team, happy coaching staff, happy fans.

That will do for me.

18 Jul 2019 21:29:04
With this being a quiet summer for us to date, the last few weeks on this site has been filled with regular debates on coutinho, Wilson etc where many contrasting opinions are held. I myself don't think they're suited enough to this team. Both players have been lauded for their striking of a ball from distance, but this ability can cloud many of our judgement of a players overall importance to a team.

Thinking of other examples where a player had many weaknesses but a few wondergoals hid their limitations. Laurent Robert, riise, hitzlesperger, Townsend, MG Pederson, kolarov. All great at striking a clean ball but I think that often led to these players all being hugely overrated at stages of their careers.

hulk, Honda, juninho, calhanoglu other examples of slightly overall limited players but their technique forged their reputations. None of those players could offer enough to play for a higher quality team. R. carlos too very overrated for his powerful shots alone.

I feel coutinho and Wilson could show similarities in the way many players have been hyped and built up just on that 1 side of their game alone.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 23:30:07
Coutinho and Wilson aren’t comparable at all, other than they can both hit a shot from distance. Wilson is a quick wide forward/ winger, as opposed to the number 10 type that Coutinho is, personally I think Wilson deserves his chance as he has done very well in his last two loan spells in the championship, 22 goals in 53 Championship games for Hull and Derby is a very good return by any definition and he scored a lot of different types of goal as well as getting a fair few assists and key passes in those spells. If this season we saw a breakthrough of Wilson and Brewster to join Alexander-Arnold, how satisfying would that be?

21 Jul 2019 01:18:30
I was just comparing them in terms of ratio of goals coming from long range. Take away coutinhos 30 yard goals and he was a 5 goal a season player for us, take away Wilson's 6 free kicks and his few penalties and he doesn't get double figures.

Now don't get me wrong, the fact they can do that is a great skill of course but my point isn't they're bad players, just that they are overrated due to the manner of the goals. Coutinho used to take 7 or 8 shots a game and wasted many attacks doing so. We hardly scored from outside the box last season, due to working the ball into higher probability scoring areas, .

Coutinho got labelled a game changer for us in a few games where he hit a cracker winning goal, but many of those games we were struggling to score due to him hitting constantly from distance, we regularly had stats of 20 shots, 3 or 4 only on target in games where coutinho was relied on. I wouldn't want that approach to return to this team, I'd rather salah and mane to be fed constantly in the box rather than wasteful low success pop shots.

Remember Charlie Adam being rated just for his free kicks and screamers, this type of players shine in teams when relied on to be the difference in some games. We relied on coutinho when our attack was weak, Blackpool relied on Adam to change games, Southampton relied on Le tissier, Bolton on okocha, Wales with bale. All good players in their own right but in a world class attack their importance and influence is much less. Sigurdsson thrives as the main man, zaha at palace, payet at West ham too vastly overrated simply because he was the only one to produce magic. Top class teams don't need to rely on these types and that's why i feel coutinho would struggle with us as much as he is currently at barca. Just my wild oponion haha.

18 Jul 2019 14:05:05
The Sturridge news is frustrating. These players earn ridiculous amounts of money, why do something so silly. Do any of the ed's have any insight into the situation?

{Ed001's Note - like what? He never gambled anything - he doesn't gamble.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 15:13:43
No, but he allegedly told his brother to bet on a potential move.

{Ed001's Note - so what has that to do with Sturridge having lots of money? And so what if he told his brother about a move? It is his family, he is bound to tell them, but his brother should have known better than to bet on it.}

18 Jul 2019 15:34:26
My understanding of the situation was that he had told his brother to place a bet on the move, as that is what's alleged. Given his personal wealth the frustration stemmed from the fact that any monetary gain from such a bet would be minimal comparatively.

If its just a case of his brother abusing the information, then that's not on Sturridge and I apologise for any accusations. If that is the case, where is the line with regards to inside information in football? legally speaking.

{Ed001's Note - who cares? It is nothing to do with Daniel's wealth and his brother never had to bet on it, regardless of what Sturridge said.}

19 Jul 2019 12:14:56
Funniest thing in all of this is he can’t play football for six weeks! We could have told the courts that.

18 Jul 2019 10:22:28
Out of fun I wanted to know the best ever team you guys think. Eds are also welcome. Mine is

Gk-Yacin
RB- Lahm
CB- loather mattahus
CB- Maldini
LB- Roberto Carlos
DM- Maklele
CM- N'golo Kante
AM- Platini
RW- Pele
CF- Rinaldo Lima (9)
LW- Maradona

Ed001 what is your favorite i really wanted to know.
PS I m not so impressed by any GK so I included Yacin of russia.

{Ed001's Note - I would change Lahm for either Carlos Alberto Torres or Cafu. I would have Baresi over Mattheus, but I would probably pick Desailly ahead of both. And then shift Maldini to left back and put in Hansen or Baresi instead.

Makalele would be nowhere near my team, he was great at what he did but you have Kante, you don't need a specific DM with him, you need someone who will press alongside him. For me that has to be Cruyff. Johan Cruyff was one of the best at pressing the ball to win it back. You don't need Platini with Cruyff, as Cruyff is much better than him. So I would swap him for Souness, he could do it all and was a machine of a man.

Can't argue without your front 3 though!}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 10:46:31
Ed01 how came I forget Cruyff agree he is the man who single handedly changed game the most sorry for his omission. I was torn in b/ w brasei but I think with so much defensive prowess we can have Carlos at lb.

{Ed001's Note - I just don't think Roberto Carlos was all that special.}

18 Jul 2019 10:53:00
Things brings me a question for you Ed1, some may say a difficult one but for me it's quite easy. Who is your favourite ever player? I was having this conversation the other day and for me it's Cruyff hands down, many greats out there of course but he was something special, a player I feel nobody will ever come close to again, certainly not in my life time.

{Ed001's Note - my favourite is Fowler. He was a special talent.}

18 Jul 2019 12:28:13
Fowler and batistuta are my two all time favourites. Missed rush and barnes in their prime. Watching fowler come through was special. What a finisher.

18 Jul 2019 13:15:58
Yes, Fowler was something different that's for damn sure. I still wouldn't put him ahead of Cruyff but he's way up there. Another legend.

{Ed001's Note - but you asked my favourite, not who was the best.}

18 Jul 2019 13:33:24
Tough one that. I'd go with this,

Buffon
Alberto baresi beckenbauher maldini.

Mattheus.
Zico. Cruyff.

Messi. Pele. Maradonna.

18 Jul 2019 13:34:59
Ed1, I worded it wrong, appolagies mate but OK so a second question lol who is the best player in your opinion?

{Ed001's Note - Maradona.}

18 Jul 2019 14:08:40
If you had to pick 3 subs then who would you want, (1 DF, 1MF, 1FW. ) Taking versatility into consideration too.

I'd have thuram in defence,

Zidane in midfield,

C. ronaldo as a forward. Only over Brazil Ronaldo as he can play wing and central


(Players like puskas, di Stefano, eusabio I've never watched enough to consider)

18 Jul 2019 15:26:51
I’d not have Kante but Souness instead. He put the fear of god into his opponents and was as comfortable defending as he was attacking. Greatest centre midfielder ever in my opinion. The persons person.

18 Jul 2019 15:40:12
As for a greatest 11? (Obviously this is a subjective matter)

Buffon,
Brehme
Kohler
Hansen
Cafu
Zidane
Souness
Socrates
Maradona
Cruyff
van Basten

Honourable mentions to Best, Dalglish, Pele, Garincha, Batistuta, Hagi, Stoichkov, Banks, Maldini, Laudrup.

18 Jul 2019 15:41:42
I always change my team, but:
Kahn; Zanetti, Stam, Maldini, Lizarazu; Kante, Schweinsteiger, Zidane; Maradona, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo (or Eto'o) .

18 Jul 2019 16:57:11
I could not get enough of Steve Mcmanaman. Best dribbler of a football I have ever seen and he scored some worldies.

Not in my best pocket but what a player!

{Ed025's Note - he could play max but as as a commentator he is the most boring man on the planet and talks a load of nonsense mate..

18 Jul 2019 17:02:37
Realtofel, do you rate schweinsteiger that highly? I always felt he was slightly limited in the world class bracket, I wouldn't even put him in my German best XI personally.

18 Jul 2019 17:05:09
Who cares what he says as a commentator.

I was pissed whem Macca decided to pack his bags for Madrid. Top, top player. Also had a succesfull spell ad Madrid. That is what makes a player.

When Owen left for Madrid crying like a baby, did not bother me one bit.

18 Jul 2019 19:43:53
Har_red92, I rate Schweini that highly. I have followed Bayern for years, and Schweini is probably my favorite player from Bayern.
Plus he has one of my all-time top 3 individual performance in a match. He was imperious against Argentina in that World Cup final - Kramer had a concussion early and Kroos had a stinker.
And in Bayern's best (or 2nd best, I'm partial to the 2001 team) season (2013) that I ever saw, he was vital to the way the team was set up.

18 Jul 2019 20:42:54
That's fair enough realtofel, if you follow bayern then I'm sure you have a better judgement on him than I do. He used to be a right winger in his early years I seem to remember, certainly was a very tidy player on the ball in his prime.

19 Jul 2019 20:13:52
I’d go 4-2-3-1

Buffon
Lahm- Cannavaro - Stam - Roberto Carlos
Souness- Cambiaso
Maradona - Platini - Cruyff
Van Basten.

17 Jul 2019 23:06:56
Just seen Huddersfield Towns new kit the paddy power logo is huge and goes across diagonally, its horrendous.
It got me thinking as Lfc were the first English club to have a sponsor on their shirt in 1979 with Hitachi was it seen as bad as the Huddersfield one is?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 07:16:30
I thought it was a pr stunt from Huddersfield and paddy power, but they actually wore it for their friendly.
Horrible kit, and think it goes against the FA guidelines.
