Sad thing about it is in summer 2015 Roberto Martinez was rumoured to be mulling over a move for Van Dijk (who was then at Celtic) but he ended up going to Southampton instead.
We ended up with Funes Mori which needs no more saying on it.

Listening to the Arsenal crowd, and think that they are not really helping their team. Its easy, when its easy, but you need people to get behind you when things arent going so well.
So if the Everton players fight against Spurs, the crowd will get right behind them, and if we are going to win, then this is whats needed tomorrow!
6 Posted 22/12/2018 at 14:20:16
We could do with some points, or we could find ourselves halfway down the Table in a couple of games, and a few tricky games on the horizon.
7 Posted 22/12/2018 at 15:34:30
Going in to tomorrows game we could be 11th.
This league is unforgiving when you hit a run without winning and every season our biggest problem is far too many draws.
Id much rather win one and lose one when we play Burnley and Brighton rather than another two frustrating draws.

Are you watching, Dominic Calvert-Lewin? How to strike a football, 101.

Gotta say it again — Are you watching, Dominic Calvert-Lewin? How to strike a football, 201.
Brilliant stuff... but bad news for us Liverpool haters!!!

“Oh but we are in transition so we can't be expected to score goals at top six venues.”

Oh, and that U20 World Cup Final goal scuffed in off his shin, didn't it?
15 Posted 22/12/2018 at 15:43:15
They were there for the taking last week but – in typical Everton fashion – we gifted them three goals and missed our chances to hurt them.
To me, I don't call it transition, I just call repeating the same mistakes on a regular basis – the first signs of madness.

24 Posted 22/12/2018 at 15:58:51
You need to have a good firing line as we all know goals get you points just as RS fans. Burnley have little up front as Wood has been a dud with injuries.
Could be a typical miserable Christmas weekend if Man City and Everton lose.

26 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:05:20
I just wish he could put his laces through the ball. Hit it hard but true. He can't have become a Premier League striker without that basic skill, surely???
27 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:06:42
28 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:09:51
Man City 1 - 3 Crystal Palace
OMG 4 shots: 1 hit post, 3 go in. Never seen anything like it. Can't believe that professional footballers can be so clinical in finishing. It's unreal!
29 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:17:51
Leicester winning at Chelsea.
Remind me again why its only us that cant win away to a top six club?
30 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:17:59
Joe, I will hold my hand up and say I saw England, with Harry Kane leading the line, get knocked out of an Under-20s World Cup a few years ago, and when someone on TW described him as a young Lee Chapman, I couldn't have agreed more.
Calvert-Lewin has definitely got a good chance in the game, IMO, and my only frustration so far this season is that I don't think Silva has played him up-top anywhere near enough.

33 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:35:08
Over the years I've also seen Branch, Cadamarteri, Jeffers and many more non scoring strikers wear an Everton shirt. Blue tinted specs can cloud many over.
Many loved the goal scoring machine Steven Naismith (yes I know Chelsea hatrick), but he couldn't even make the first team at Championship Norwich and has even been loaned to Hearts.
34 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:37:07
35 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:42:23
Ive got a horrible feeling Guardiola wants the Champions League as his priority this season and I can really see the Redshite winning the Premier League they dont concede goals and down the other end they keep scoring them, its the perfect recipe for success.

38 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:50:32
39 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:51:57
I class Franny as a real wasted talent, whereas I always class Steven Naismith as somebody who got the best out of himself.
Anyway I hope you are wrong for obvious reasons, but as I said yesterday, Calvert Lewin possibly splits the fan-base as much as any player on the clubs books.

42 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:53:28
Are we really making the progress we believe or are we just clouding our judgement after Sam Allardyce?
To me, other clubs seem to get surprise results, Palace and Leicester winning away to the top six, yet with Everton, it just feels like everything stays the same, year-in & year-out.
43 Posted 22/12/2018 at 16:53:57
Its got nothing to do with belittling us as "plucky little Everton" and everything to do with the reality of the top of the Premier League as it currently is, where we currently are and how far the playing field has shifted in just the last couple of years. We patently are further behind those top five/six teams in terms of "squad development, finances, investment, etc," and the Arsenal (a), Chelsea (a) and, to a lesser extent, Manchester United (a) games were cases in point, ones that underlined the greater quality that each side possesses on the one hand and the fact that we still lack consistent quality, belief, and consistency going forward on the other.

The only good thing is that the RS fans will be even more disappointed when Slippy II takes place some time in February.
46 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:01:17
I find it hard to fathom really why Everton is the only club that can't ever seem to break the mould and get a surprise victory anymore in a game that we aren't supposed to win.
Were Palace and Leicester meant to win today, two clubs in turmoil?
We constantly use excuses about transition but it's transition every year without concrete change in results. We could get David Moyes back in three years time when Silva leaves and the results will probably have been no different really to when he first left.
It's just frankly weird that no matter what manager or players we sign or money we spend, we still can't get a big win to make a real statement of intent.
Transition doesn't stop you winning one-off football matches.
47 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:05:55
Totally different ball game now being favourite. Let's see how they handle it.
48 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:06:30
Erm... It's better than it was under Allardyce... if we could finish, we'd be in the top 4...
Clear progress...erm... don't expect miracles overnight... this time next year, though... yeah, but we've had tough away games...
Erm... did I mention 'transition'?

52 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:09:10
53 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:23:01
Hmm... tell me, which one did they win?
54 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:24:25
This is the bottom 15 of the league, where everyone can beat each other. We won't progress till we consistently beat the teams around/below us.
During the Moyes years, the heroic 1-0 wins against Man Utd were usually followed by a dismal draw or defeat against the likes of Norwich and Derby.
If I'm honest, I was more annoyed by the dropped points against Watford & Newcastle than those against them & Man City. We need players who can score goals. Nothing to do with curses, Everton, that, or anything else. We need goals.
55 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:33:40
There you go Michael 😀😀
56 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:39:06
We haven't got an experienced centre-forward so what we need to do is batter away at the youngster who will be asked to step up.
If we all get behind this brilliant idea, we may be able to destroy his confidence completely... Then we can sign a top class striker instead because the other clubs will really want to give us a helping hand at their own expense.
Evertonians kicking Everton when we haven't even played... that's gorra be a first, hasn't it?
57 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:41:34
However, we also need a pragmatic coaching team that can adjust the team and tactics to suit the opposition.
Unless you have a squad/team like Ma City and unfortunately the RS, who can play their own game regardless then we have to adapt.
58 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:44:31
And no, it's not a first; Evertonians are good at destroying players' confidence. Happens regularly over the seasons.
59 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:46:45
Calvert-Lewin has ability, has promise. I'd play him up front and give him a run of games. I'd beg people on here to show him some understanding.
Any criticism he gets needs to be directed at those who couldn't keep a good striker and appear unable to replace him.
60 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:48:40
61 Posted 22/12/2018 at 17:54:36
Well how about the Everton players down the years that have put in so many displays that slap loyal fans in the faces in big games?
You get what you deserve.
Everton fans would like to see something back from time to time.
Nobody is asking to win the Champions League or win the Premier League (well leave that to little old Leicester to drum up a shock).
But hell, we cant even celebrate a Merseyside derby win these days.
So sorry John but dont talk to me about the loyal paying fans destroying players, who are financially set up for life despite regularly hitting the heights of failure.

Danny Cadamateri and Franny Jeffers didn't fulfil their potential... so let's batter every youngster who comes along... genius!
Nobody in the present set up can do a single thing about what has happened "down the years" even if some want to preserve the misery of them by referring to them in virtually every thread.
It's all about tomorrow's game.

Basically, we've got 9 of the current Top 10 still to play at home (plus Burnley) and, with our dreadful record on the road*, 11 tough away games. The remainder of the season will be a big test of Marco Silva.
* 8 wins in our last 46 PL away games.

The thing is, Darren, we have played, and we have played well below our potential. That's the whole point!
That's not what it is, Darren, and I think you know it. Think about it in terms of that daft bit of Latin on the badge. Or instead let's batter every youngster who comes along.
So, we're battering every youngster who comes along, eh, Darren? You sure about that? Or are you telling porkies... agian.
77 Posted 22/12/2018 at 19:19:22
Just for the record, I do actually want us to win! There seems to be a thing on ToffeeWeb that if you're not 100% positive or if you criticise then that means you want Silva sacked or that you're not backing the team. That's not the case at all. I want us to win but I also have the right to be critical along the way.
Have a good Christmas, mate!
78 Posted 22/12/2018 at 19:26:00
Thats only natural if you look at the tribal nature of football, but Ive read you batter Calvert-Lewin, before today Michael, but Im pretty sure its only because you want everyone to do better?
79 Posted 22/12/2018 at 19:36:06
That doesnt stop me wishing best wishes to everyone though. I spent a little bit of time the other week, with a ToffeeWeb regular who beat terminal cancer, and Im sure the only way thats possible is through having loads of faith.
So I will end the night by saying, have faith everybody, and with Liverpool being top of the league right now, then hope that the saying is true about he who laughs last, laughs the longest! Keep the faith, keep the faith, keep the faith. Xx.

Yes, mistakes have been made by the manager and he will make some more. We now are a better team to watch this season, for me at least, some fans – and genuine at that – will dispute that and also point out that it is results that count; fair enough, each to his own.
I believe we will continue to improve and so will the results, but I haven't got a magic wand to make it happen in a flash, and neither have Brands and Silva.
83 Posted 22/12/2018 at 20:13:13
Da da dada da da
84 Posted 22/12/2018 at 20:15:26
Before a ball was kicked this season, I said I'd be prepared to wait until next season before taking them to severe task. Up to now, I'm encouraged by what I see but even I can see there's a fair old way to go in acquiring better players before we have a hope in hell of top four.
That's not their fault, it's the fault of Kenwright who orchestrated the dross we've had to endure. Purging the club of his influence can't come soon enough for me.
85 Posted 22/12/2018 at 20:20:35
What did some of our fans expect after 17 league games?
86 Posted 22/12/2018 at 20:37:36
What I do know is that our inexperienced youngster has a far better strike rate than these two fantastic professionals.
Palace paid around £25M for these two. My money would be on our £1.5m youngster to score more than the pair of them. You can bet your life Roy Hodgson would trade that worldie for four or five tap-ins.
I don't know if Calvert-Lewin will become a striker who will play regularly for Everton. What I do know is I wouldn't swap him for a serial under achiever like Townsend in a million years.
87 Posted 22/12/2018 at 20:40:46
But the fact is we can't score. We play better football than last season — I should bloody hope so! Why do we always keep coming back to that, though, as any kind of measure of our continuing failure to perform at the required level, given the massive improvements that have been put in place at very great expense since the dark days of Fat Sam?
I'm looking at the players we have now, and asking why I still have to suffer poor to at best mediocre No 10 performances from Sigurdsson; annoying "falling down" play, poor decision-making, and missed shots from our star player, Richarlison; and a hopeless lack of firepower in Calvert-Lewin???
I believe they could and should be doing a lot better. Maybe you don't. That's fine.
But I have the club motto on my side.
88 Posted 22/12/2018 at 21:10:47
I'm not saying Silva and Everton will make those big differences but I am saying I expect them to be much much better than we are now, surely you can see we will definitely improve?
Yes or No, Michael? Come on, tell the truth and shame the devil.
89 Posted 22/12/2018 at 21:15:38
I may be mistaken, but I also believe that, because we can't influence matters directly, we are as disappointed as any other supporter with the current situation. I know that there are some who deride the expression 'Transitional Period' but, as I understand it, a transitional period brings to mind the adage 'Rome wasn't built in a day', and in the football world, it's to be expected every time there is a change of management.
On a personal note, I hope that your prophecy, stating that you believe I will be in my seat at the Park End on New Years Day, comes about, but, I'm afraid I don't share your optimism.
Hi Michael [various posts], although I've never met you, I find your approach at times to be intolerant and offensive. I have no issue with your questions or opinions, it's the delivery of them that bothers me. I'm aware that as an editor of this site you can have the final say on any subject, and I respect that.

92 Posted 22/12/2018 at 00:11:06
No, if you want to compare us with anyone, surely Arsenal would be a better object lesson. New manager arrives when? Oh yes... the same time as Silva. He seems to have a number of expensive imports as lynchpins to the team who weren't performing well under the last old fella but he's now seeing them bring home the bacon. That's what I think we should be seeing at Everton. Starting with Sigurdsson. Don't you agree? Yes or No.
You keep posting saying you are certain they are going to be better than they are now, as if that should somehow molify any desire to see any real improvement just yet. Simply put, we should ignore the shit today because, yes, you guessed it — there will be Jam Tomorrow.
Sorry, Dave, but your vacuous guarntees are not worth the paper they aren't written on. It's always Jam Tomorrow. There's always an excuse. A plethora of excuses. Sorry but I'm sick of hearing them. Why, you've somehow even gotten to Darren and softened him up in recent weeks. Soon it'll be just me and Jim wailing in the wilderness.
[Johnny Mac, I pulled a few punches on the delivery here to keep it clean and wholesome; hope it isn't too much of a shock to your delicate condition still... If not, then please grasp firmly to your zimmer frame as you read this, while I work on attenuating my "intolerant and offensive" tone. ]
93 Posted 23/12/2018 at 00:23:19
These feats were pointed out as clear examples to Calvert-Lewin of how to shoot at goal. Not to beat him – what good would that do? – but to inspire him to greater things. I think they call it "constructive criticism" in the motivational literature.
You go off then on one of your bizarre tangents, introducing the notion that Calvert-Lewin and Townsend should somehow be switched or traded. Fantasy Football, Darren. Sorry but I have no time for it.
94 Posted 23/12/2018 at 00:27:57
95 Posted 23/12/2018 at 00:38:07
And for what it's worth I generally empathise with the points made by Jim Bennings and you, especially when it comes to the softness too often seen in Everton teams year upon year and, under Kenwright, decade after decade, exemplified for me by the appointment as a player and "coach" of the likes of drunken Duncan, a bloke who consistently did a bunk whenever it suited him, to the club's, and fans', cost.
M&M are trying to dig us out of a ginormous sentimental lovey-dovey hole, and I fear it'll take more than two dozen games to achieve it, that's all.
Best wishes, Don.
96 Posted 23/12/2018 at 06:05:54
I just hope Calvert-Lewin scores the winner today.
97 Posted 23/12/2018 at 06:54:20
I hope you see the funny side of that John Mc, even if you don't actually find Mr Kenrick even remotely funny?
Even Darren is not taking the bait, “Lofty!”
98 Posted 23/12/2018 at 07:53:46
99 Posted 23/12/2018 at 08:03:12
If you and I live to be 100, we could only hope to be the Evertonian that Dave is.
100 Posted 23/12/2018 at 09:45:47
I don't find it remotely funny, and I think that Dave deserves a lot of respect for the gentlemanly way he imparts his knowledge, an input valued by many 'ToffeeWebbers'.
In the relatively short time that I have known Dave, I find that like all fans there is a bias, that's what football is all about, he is in no way what I would term a 'Bitter Blue. In the event of this being my final post, I think you have my contact details.
101 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:13:46
Dave A didn't "soften me up". I've disagreed with him many a time, but his response has always been polite and respectful. That kind of response makes you respectful in return.
Dave's old school. He will give credit where it's due, even if it's to the enemy.
102 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:16:45
I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief history of my life as an Evertonian, I was born on 15 July 1938 in the Everton district of Liverpool, into an Everton family, and since the age if 10 years I have been a dedicated supporter.
Dave Abrahams was also born in Everton and, like myself he has been a keen follower of the club. I think that the way you dealt with his perfectly rational post was disrespectful. Dave, myself, and many others have very little love for Liverpool Football Club, but recognise and appreciate quality when we see it; is this a reason to belittle us?
It's possible that you and I will never exchange posts again – on your part because you have control of the button... and mine, if I'm allowed to contribute, will be because we have nothing in common.
103 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:20:11
The point is, for the vast majority of my years with the Blues, I've looked forward to games but often left disappointed. By Monday, I couldn't wait for the next game as I always believed we'd come good. And we did.
I'm looking forward to today's game and, if we lose it, I'll still be looking forward to the next. Especially the Brighton game as I have a ticket with our amazing away supporters.
We are getting better – only people with short memories can't see the difference between now and 12 months ago and, whilst the results aren't happening yet, I am 100% confident they will when we click. We are a couple of players short of a top 6 side – I accept that – but I'm very confident that we are heading there.
Rome was not built in a day and an Everton team challenging for honours will need at least two more transfer windows and some time of stability to get there... so just be patient and enjoy the ride.
And hope in the meantime the dark side crumble, as that's testing even my nerve!
Happy Christmas to Blues everywhere!
104 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:29:26
After reading your post I went back and read Michael's post at 92 in reference to yourself.
Having read the last paragraph, words fail me.
105 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:46:42
As a recipient of Zimmer frame comments myself I can take them face to face and respond in kind. I hope Michael was just intending some misguided humour...
Come on guys - it's Christmas time!! Peace and love to all men... Except gobby koppites!
106 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:50:53
Dave and Tony A, John Mc - all have a great xmas.
107 Posted 23/12/2018 at 10:59:31
I agree, we are all entitled to an opinion and we are all entitled to disagree with other opinions but when it becomes personal especially to a man who in my short time on here has never said a bad word about any other poster and who's knowledge of all things Everton is imperious.
We all want success and over the last 30 years there has been very little so I am in the "give the new regime a chance" brigade. They have had ONE, yes, ONE transfer window to try and weed out mediocre players and bring in players to improve things. Rome like Everton FC 2018 was not built in ONE transfer window.
108 Posted 23/12/2018 at 11:03:27
Sigurdsson scored a worldy against Leicester, but was soon being slagged-off again.

Of course the team is in transition, we have a new manager who is changing things. And yes, we've been in transition for most of the last 6 years, if you don't want transition then stop demanding the manager be sacked or you'll just get another season or two of transition.
Arsenal are in transition. If you actually know any Arsenal fans, they'll tell you how lucky they've been. Until a few games ago, they'd not been convincing in victory. They're also only slightly up on points compared to last season. We're up, but barely, on last season.
Our performances deserve more and I think we'll be seeing a lot more results over the next 6 games, starting today.

You don't know me at all, Michael, I begrudge every point they have won or are likely to win in the future, but it will never stop me telling the truth as I see it.
They are now a very good team, it hurts to see them where they are and I'm praying for a bad patch to hit them, a very long bad patch but I'm also waiting for Everton's turn to hit the high spots and, yes, I am convinced it will come under the present people who are running the club. With a good striker, as we all know, we would already be in the top six — and that's after just six months. The club has changed massively in that short time, for the better I believe, and will continue to improve, starting today hopefully.
Michael, have a good Christmas and I honestly have no problem with your chastisement, no problem. I'll be writing in the same way until I realise the club is on the wrong track.

There are four or five teams in particular, who play the football we would love to watch on a regular basis, and unfortunately Liverpool are part of that group. Best wishes for today, and let's hope we will be enjoying a 'Festive Season'. John.

"No, if you want to compare us with anyone, surely Arsenal would be a better object lesson. New manager arrives when? Oh yes... the same time as Silva."
Lacazette & Aubameyang or Tosun & Niasse.
2 proven goalscorers make a massive difference to even an average team.

Sometimes we can say things we regret when we feel strongly about an issue. Like me the other day with my “anyone who wants Lukaku back can fuck off” comment on the Augustin thread – for which I now apologise to all those “who do” and also those “who don't”.
Rightly or wrongly, I think like I did, you went in too hard on this one. I don't know Dave or Tony (the apple doesn't fall far from the tree), but they come across as rabid Evertonians to me and men who I would go the game with if I still lived in England.
Accept Dave's olive branch at 111 – a good example for all of us. It will be better for everyone.

For me, there's far too much written about Liverpool on this website. I don't give a monkey's how true it may be — they are the last team in the world I want to see any mention of on what is supposed to be an Everton website.
There's only two occasions when I would countenance talk of them hated bastards — when they are losing or suffering other misfortune... and when they are playing us. Ideally, these two should be one, but we know how rarely that happens these days...
All the best for your Solstice Celebrations, Dave, and let's hope the New Year brings better results for Silva and his team.
