Hi Ed I see its being banded about in the rags again about the strong possibility of Wayne Rooney returning to Everton in the summer, what is your take on this mate, if he is going to come and R K seems to favour this, then this would be the last time being 30 that he could contribute to the team cheers GuernseyBlue.

{Ed025's Note - hes not coming GB, to be honest im glad as i think he is well past his sell by date mate..

If Rooney goes to China will Everton get a percentage of the transfare fee? If so does anybody no way the percentage would be?

{Ed002's Note - I would have expected any clauses related to the sell on would have long expired but the original deal was that Everton would get 25% of the fee over and aboe the total amount Manchester United have paid Everton (transfer fee and bonuses). As such, if we assume that total to be around £30M or so and he was sold for £40M, if the clause is still acive Everton would benefit by £2.5M less costs. If however he were sold for £30M, nothing would be due even if the clause is still active.}

Most supporters have an opinion one way or another about Rooney coming back to Everton. However if he does come back it has to be based on a hard business decision and not on sentiment one way or the other. His return, if he comes, has to benefit Everton financially. The benefits have to out way the cost and not the other way around. I'm glad I don't have to make the decision but my gut feeling is it just will not happen.

Let him go to China, make loads of money then invest it in the club. Maybe buy a stand at the new stadium, or sponsor the academy? Obviously none of this will actually happen. He's a footballer after all.

Personally turning down China for me only makes the possibility of a move to Everton in the Summer more likely, I would not dismiss this just yet.

The lad is still an avid Evertonian but at 31 is this really what/ who RK is looking at to drive us forward, personally I wouldn't have thought so. As for clauses, I was given to understand that Ed002 in particular thought that clauses were either an irrelevance or did not exist.

{Ed002's Note - No, I have never said that.}

My apologies Ed002 got that one wrong.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps a reminder about transfer related clauses would be apt. This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws. They cause a great deal of misunderstanding with football supporters and the media alike.

The "buy out" clause is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax). There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about four years ago. So "buy out" clauses are very rare.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales) for legal purposes. These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. For interested clubs outside of the country the selling club may use it as a guide but are under obligation to accept a bid.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another.}

{Ed002's Note - Lyon's Rachid Ghezzal will be moving in the summer Eddy but I fear not to Everton.}

Keep seeing rumours about players like tielemans, nestorovski, pickman, Keane, maguire. Think the tielemans one has no chance and is based on the misinterpreted conversation that Ed has already commented on. Only seen him a couple of times but really like the look of nestorovski and he's doing really well in a pretty poor team. Heard Atletico are looking at him so will have a fight there. Either way, I'm liking the quality of players we are being linked with at the minute.

Believable1 2Unbelievable

21 Feb 2017 07:45:01
Ed, are the links in the press to Lucas Perez just recycling stories from the summer or do we still hold an interest?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Everton making any approach to Arsenal or his representatives.}

Hi ed, any news on the young Brazilian we was supposed to be after.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has happened with Caio Emerson just yet.}

What about this Wallace fella? Every time I read something mentioning him it's that we are watching him with a view to a summer move.

Hi eds sorry if this has been asked but does Barkley want to sign a new contract or does koeman not want him. I may be wrong but I think a few months ago one of the eds said koeman wasn't keen on him and was prepared to sell him for the right price. I know Barkleys form has improved since then but I'm just curious as to the contract situation. Thanks in advance.

{Ed025's Note - koeman wants him dan, since he was told a few home truth,s by ronnie ross has knuckled down and is becoming the player we all wanted him to be, he is more assertive and fitter and the benefits are there for all to see, ross is keeping his options open as a lot of other teams would like his services with spurs showing real interest, in the end it will be up to ross and his agent and the deal they can get from everton but my guess is he will stay with us mate..

Thanks ed. I hope your right, would be disappointing to lose him.

Reports in various papers today we are looking at tilemans the young lad from Belgium! Any Eds know of there is any truth in this?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is a misunderstanding if the paper has said that - Everton were used as an example (by an interviewer) of a "smaller" team in a big league. Nothing more than an example - but there is pleanty of interest in him from elsewhere.}

Believable0 1Unbelievable

Shame, would love him to sign but eds probably right, he's on his way to bigger things I reckon.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Feb 2017 12:07:39
Sure off to bigger things to sit on the bench. He would be better off at a "smaller" team like us!

{Ed002's Note - But Everton has not shown any interest in the player.}

Massive news on Lukaku. His agent has said this morning that he is signing his new deal AND is not leaving in the summer.

He also said Chelsea and anyone else are wasting their time even bidding for him.

That means we can concentrate on other areas in our building of the team and look more for an understudy for Rom than replacement.

Still not sure on it. Raiola hasn't exactly been 100% clear and honest in the past. Let's hope both him and rom are buying into the project though.

Agree3 0Disagree

09 Feb 2017 15:51:06
Irregardless it makes much better reading than the 6 monthly speech of how he's actively looking for another club.
Maybe raiola has bought into the future of everton which is a good thing for us.

{Ed025's Note - i hope so too anom..

Maybe a certain Russian has had a quiet word with him 😂😂.

the only reason his agent called talksport is because the same station this morning where going on about how talks had stalled between Rom and the club. I have searched for this story and it seems it's just talksport once again trying to sell our players even after the agent said he was staying Danny the kopite Murphy was going on how we are not big enough for him and he will leave when one of the so called big boys come in for him. jesus makes my blood boil the way these guys can just make stories up and from now on talksport have lost me as a listener.

Agree3 0Disagree

09 Feb 2017 20:40:52
In all fairness I would hope no one listens to talksport ever again. They have recently (last year) been bought by the owners of the S*n. Think we should stand with the reds and boycott the station on this principle.

Anyway I hope Rom stays and fires us to success. He could become an absolute blue legend of he does.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Feb 2017 22:31:54
Stopped listening to that station years ago mate. Bad enough with that bloated buffoon in the morning, now they've added Jim White who's Whitney voice goes right through me.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Feb 2017 16:26:36
Danny Murphy decent enough player but his punditry is league 2.Regarding talksport as soon as sun owners to control that was enough, and many former reds and indeed Colin Murray resigned. respect.

Raiola on talksport saying Lukaku will sign new contract and won't be leaving in the summer.

Abel hernandez of Hulls lawyer is reported as saying everton are interested in signing him in the summer. I really hope this is a typo and he means Javier Hernandez.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

09 Feb 2017 08:48:43
Personally I like him as a back up striker. Obviously we would all like a top quality striker but whilst we have rom, what's the likelihood that someone is going to want to come and sit on the bench? That is unless we get someone who can play a few positions or something.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Feb 2017 20:26:56
He looks a decent potential addition to me. Granted I'd prefer Javier, but would definitely take Abel.
