Everton F.C. is a football club in LiverpoolEngland, that currently competes in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. The club have competed in the top division for a record 114 seasons and won the League Championship nine times, and the FA Cup five times.

Formed in 1878, Everton were founding members of The Football League in 1888 and won their first League Championship two seasons later. Following four League Championship and two FA Cup wins, Everton experienced a lull in the immediate post World War Two period, until a revival in the 1960s, which saw the club win two League Championships and an FA Cup. The mid-1980s represented their most recent period of sustained success, with two League Championships, an FA Cup, and the 1985 European Cup Winners' Cup. The club's most recent major trophy was the 1995 FA Cup.

All discussion relating to Everton that does not warrant it's own thread (i.e. - players signing new contracts, newspaper clippings etc...) should take place here.

Controversial. That being said, what are the fans making of the Koeman revolution?

Banter aside, he's doing a good job. Steadied the ship after a ropey start and now getting consistant results. As I've said before though, keeping Lukaku is crucial in my opinion as he is basically 75% of their goals.

I remember thinking how incredibly inconsistent Lukaku is, then banged in 10 goals in a month. Barkley not quite reaching the heights has in my opinion helped them retain him as well. If he had a truly breakout season though, he might be off.

The thing with Lukaku is that he can be absolutely terrible for a significant run of games, but he still manages to score goals. Every single season he's near the top of the goalscoring charts. 

Barkley, well, I just don't rate him. He has about 5 good games a season. Never got all the fuss about him and if I was the manager of Everton and got a £20m+ offer for him, I'd snatch their hand off.

Stadium move is imperative for Everton, a 55k stadium on the docks is the dream. Let's just hope the council get this deal done, it would be massive for Liverpool as a whole and kick off a part of the city which has so much potential.

55k? 

In the Liverpool thread it was suggested that Liverpool FC need more than a 60k seater stadium or risk being left behind, so where does a 55k stadium leave Everton?

Heh, jokes aside whether we like it or not 55,000 is enough for where we are at the moment. I'd rather us fill that to the brim than move into a 100,000 seater and get mocked for having empty seats. With the money and vision for the club that Farhad Moshiri has there is a real sense of belief that we are going places and that in 10-20 years we can be an established European heavy-weight. 

For now though, it's about baby-steps. It's about tying our best players down to contracts, spending enough money to be competitive on the pitch and pumping money into the right areas off it to keep us breathing down the neck of the top teams around us.

Basically the same as us mate but I'd say we are probably a few years ahead of you lot at this stage. 

Certainly exciting times for the blue shite though!

I'd say 55k with room for expanding is the way to go at the moment, as you say it is about baby steps. We have sold out every home game in the league this season and I've never known it to be more difficult to get tickets both home and away with people scrapping over spares! Haha.

 

The whole club has a real feeling of excitement and positivity. I just hope this continues for the rest of the season and takes us to Europe. Fairly big game on that front today against a team who recently we struggle against a bit at Goodison.

The Kings Dock is my preferred choice because of the destination and how it would look within the city. It's been hinted by the architect running the project and the Mayor of Liverpool that this is indeed the site so here's to hoping it's all true. 

I'd love an enclosed stadium to really get the atmosphere going, something modelled like the Allianz would be a dream.

I think Kings Dock is off the table now, with the Echo arena have being built there. The area they're looking at is the Bramley-Moore dock just north of what we'd consider the city centre to be and nearby the Stanley Dock tobacco warehouse. If this goes ahead, which it sounds like it will, it'll be a major boost for regeneration in the area and potentially expand the city centre northwards by just under a mile.

No other site would be accepted now and it's good to see the club pushing for Bramley-Moore. Announcement can't be too far away but I understand caution with how the other attempted moves have panned out. 

Dreading that last game at Goodison.

I've gone past listening to Joe Anderson. Desperate for attention and sticking himself in the centre of it. He's got more important things to be worrying about.

Screwdriver to the next home game then eh? :)

Lukaku not signing a new contract apparently. He's not a player who actually improves the side as a whole (by that I mean the side is very much engineered to suit him, he scores but he's not good enough to deserve a side being set up like that for me), get 50mill plus in the summer and you're laughing.

For fucks sake.

Still make a killing off him though. Not like he's out of contract this summer.

Bad timing for this to come out. Mino isn't where he is in life without doing it, I suppose. 

He was never staying here for the rest of his career. He's ready for CL football right now and we're a long way off in "the project" for him to wait around. 

It's bad news for us though. He's been fantastic for us from the moment he came in and is definitely getting better. We'll struggle to replace the goals. 

Hopefully they come to an agreement in a few weeks.

Coleman's leg shattered by Neil Taylor in the Ireland Wales match tonight, be out for at least a year I should think. Shit luck to get two in a season following Bolasie as well. Wish him well.

On a side note, McCarthy injured in the warm up. Time for him to sod off to somewhere like West Brom now, has had about 2 good performances for us in the last 18 months, constantly injured but still goes on international duty for some reason, can't be dealing with it.

Awful for Coleman, looked terrible. Hope for a speedy recovery

Suppose you could count Besic in that as well, I reckon he'd have featured a lot under Koeman. 

Agree on McCarthy, get rid. We could get our money back on him. 

Coleman injury is bad news, got to invest in a right back in the summer and play Holgate there for the remainder. Unless Jonjoe Kenny steps up.

TBH I would feel a tinge of schadenfreude if his career went down the shitter. Born in Castlemilk, developed at Hamilton, fucks off to play for Ireland. 

It's hard enough qualifying for tournaments when Ireland tries to poach every player in Scotland with ginger hair.

It's an absolute travesty, in the peak of his career and he has turned into a class player. I'm sure he'll recover at some point but by then he could be into his 30s.

Real shame for Everton.

The worry for me is that some players just don't come back the same after injuries like this. Coleman is without doubt one of our best players and its a real blow to us that this has happened.

Sky Sports say that he's having a scan in Dublin soon, hopefully its good news although I don't know what that would be at this point.

Everton prepare £40m swoop for Michael Keane & Jordan Pickford:

nintchdbpict000304576977.jpg?strip=all&w

Everton will make a £40million double swoop for England starlets Michael Keane and Jordan Pickford and boss Ronald Koeman is ahead of a pack of big hitters in the race for two of our brightest talents. 

Keane, who should win his second cap against Lithuania today, knows he will be quitting Burnley in the summer and the 24-year-old favours a switch to Everton as he will be a first-team regular there, partnering Ashley Williams in the heart of defence. The United fan says he is “flattered” by the growing interest in him but guaranteed game time is his No 1 priority.

Sunderland keeper Pickford, 23, has attracted interest from Premier League heavyweights Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal but Goodison gaffer Koeman has made the first serious move in the race for £15m-rated England Under-21 star. The Black Cats are currently seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Premier League and they are likely to cash in on youth product Pickford if they go down at the end of the season.
