Barry off to WBA!? Gutted if true better than besic and McCarthy.

Agree0 Disagree10

15 Aug 2017 00:22:48
hope not still got something offer for me, besic and mccarthy nothing special and both never fit besic has only played about 8 games in 3 years, barry been here 3 years never injured and can still control a midfield with Gueye.

15 Aug 2017 08:55:12
Berkshireblue, entitled to your opinion mate. Besic if free from injury, is a superb player.

15 Aug 2017 09:03:54
He's been a great servant to the club so it will be sad if he leaves. You can understand it from his perspective though as he is in the twilight of his career now and will get more regular game time at WBA than he will with us.

So good luck to him.

15 Aug 2017 10:29:02
Perhaps this is one reason for the hold up with the sig deal. Swansea want chadli from the baggies to replace sig and maybe barry replacing chadli was the trigger for the sig deal to go through. Fingers crossed .

15 Aug 2017 10:51:52
really sad to see him go, controls a game from that central role really well, besic is superb on his day btw tenascious and aggressive perfect for the amount of games we will be playing, but barry imo would have been worth keeping hold of for this same reason.

15 Aug 2017 12:34:08
This move is at the right time for both the club and the player. Gareth Barry is without doubt one of the premier leagues best ever player, but, he has lost that critical half a yard and, imho, slows the team down when he plays. Losing that little bit of sharpness and pace has him committing silly fouls and often his presence brings the performance down.

I wish him well as he has been a great player for us.

15 Aug 2017 13:30:02
besic is a superb player seriously and what our u basing that on the 10 mins he's played for everton he has rob a living of everton when he play he just goes round kicking anyone he can find.

15 Aug 2017 14:37:47
everytime besic has had a run in the team he has hardly put a foot wrong, Gary.

15 Aug 2017 15:00:40
Besic if free from injury would be one of our best, fantastic player.

15 Aug 2017 15:11:12
hardly put a foot wrong ok i give in, average at the very best, he is about 6 choice midfielder so unless were planning to sell 4 or 5 midfield he won't even get on the bench,

15 Aug 2017 15:25:29
Don't know where you sit n the ground Gary but as wblue says every time he plays he doesn't put a foot wrong. I also said in my comment that 'if free from injury'.

15 Aug 2017 16:02:30
Hearing Dendonker as a replacement for barry? Any eds know anything? Apparently keen on the move and guessing utd don't need him now they have matic. Would be class if we were in for him.

{Ed002's Note - I thought we were well beyond that now.}

15 Aug 2017 18:33:13
I think there was a news article today ed.

{Ed002's Note - I would not have seen that.}

14 Aug 2017 21:54:11
Has to be dolburg for me. The forwards we are now being linked with are not good enough to break the top 4. Dolburg is a gamble yes but he is potential world class and we know he links well with klassen already. Coyb
Time to gamble.

Agree6 Disagree3

14 Aug 2017 22:23:25
Dembale for me, offer James McCarthy in the deal, and Welbeck with Barkley thrown in on the deal.

15 Aug 2017 03:45:58
Keep Barry, unless he wants to go, but is better we sell Mccarthy before the Irish internationals, otherwise he will be injured till the next round of internationals.

15 Aug 2017 09:52:57
I personally think McCarthy has to go we can't get any form from him when he's injured every 2nd game. I'm Irish this whole media flare up every time he's selected for international duty is not worth the stress. He is one of those guys who breaks a toe nail and won't chance it. I fear if we don't sell him now we may never see a good transfer fee. Barry has been a joy at the club at 36 he just wants to play as much as he can. He deserves a last decent contract at a club he can play 30 games plus.

15 Aug 2017 11:08:32
Tallaghtblue 'breaks a toe nail and won't chance it' really?

My reading of McCarthy is that he regularly play's when he is not near fully fit and that is the reason he was out for so long last season. It all caught up with him. If he had not of chanced it and made sure he was properly fit coming back he would be much better off and less prone to injury.

16 Aug 2017 08:50:48
lol the guy who said mcca breaks a toenail and won't chance it, if there was a modicum of truth to that why did the irish team pick him and play him and make his injury worse when he hadn't played for us in a month due to injury and against his club doctors advice. lol again, you don't have to be einstien to realise macca' problem is just the opposite he plays to much when injured. brilliant player we have not seen the best of yet at efc. altho he might go if he wants too i guess, but that will be his choice imo we need players like jimmy to stay the size of your squad is what determines whether you can challenge for trophies, the quality of the squad determines whether you can win those trophies and jimmy is quality.

14 Aug 2017 20:58:35
Apparently welbeck is keen on a move to work with Koeman not sure how true but worth a punt.

Agree2 Disagree3

14 Aug 2017 21:15:28
Hi ed are we really interested in welbeck? I think he would be a massive signing for us he has so much ability and pace. Would love us to sign him wanted us to get him from united he would Bennie to play out wide and as the main striker too.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

14 Aug 2017 21:26:46
Thanks for the reply ed👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

14 Aug 2017 19:34:22
Ed do you think the board would put a bid in diego costa or do you think he's out of our league? And are we interested in slimani? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Everton showing interest in either and I rather doubt Costa would want to move to Everton Duncan.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2017 19:40:27
Is that Duncan Ferguson asking? That's one man who knows all about harnessing the demons inside for the better!

14 Aug 2017 19:59:25
True that, but you have a be init to win an it, I know I'm being optimistic but I want someone of his class we have just got 95m for rom we need to replace him, but who.?

14 Aug 2017 20:06:46
Hi ed if we don't look like we are going to add a new striker in this window do u think we would put a cheeky bid to take Costa on loan till January before he would move to atletico Madrid then giving us more opportunity to find an ideal striker I know it's unlikely but it would get him out of Chelsea till January and give us a top quality striker for short term.

{Ed002's Note - Rooney and Sandro have been added. Why would Chelsea loan him until January, and why would he move to Everton, particularly given they have no interest in him. Would this put Rooney on the bench until January or someone else?}

14 Aug 2017 21:39:01
Hi Ed keep hearing you mention we have Rooney and sandro. Do you think that's enough fire power for us to compete at all levels in all competitions? Seems we come up a bit short in that depart when you compare to the other sides we are competing with. Arsenal for instance our nearest rivals boast lacazette, giroud, welbeck, iwobi, sanchez to name a few?

14 Aug 2017 23:00:23
With the premier league europa league cup and fa cup I feel we are light up top so it wouldn't mean one player sitting out continuously more rotation at times.

14 Aug 2017 23:39:27
He'd only put the same players on the bench as any other first choice striker we brought in and rightly so if that striker is going to score 15 or more goals a season.

14 Aug 2017 17:39:58
Anyone heard about Barkley going down injured? Seen a report in a london rag down here that states he went down in pain and had to be helped off the training pitch clutching his leg.

But not seen anything on Sky Sports, anyone know anything?

{Ed025's Note - i have heard nothing ST..

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2017 18:12:17
Hamstring according to reports.

14 Aug 2017 19:41:15
Thanks thought it may have just been the london rags stirring the pot!

14 Aug 2017 20:41:52
Red Echo now reporting Barkley suffered a hamstring injury in training today, then again they're also reporting Coutinho has a bad back.

14 Aug 2017 12:59:34
Hi Eds,

What is likely to happen with Lookman.

Will he stay or go out on loan do you think?

I would personally prefer him to play over DCL, on the wing.

DCL is more effective through the middle IMO.

{Ed001's Note - last I heard the plan was to loan him out.}

Agree0 Disagree2

14 Aug 2017 14:06:47
Part of me feels it would be a shame but another part can see the logic to send him to a team where he will get a lot of game time, would insert a recall clause.

14 Aug 2017 14:41:03
This is going to be and was always going to be the problem with bringing in virtually a whole new first Team in this Window. How do you meld them all together. Thankfully I am not the one being paid big bucks and can whinge and moan from the sidelines in the knowledge it is never going to be my responsibility.

14 Aug 2017 14:53:07
I personally think that if we get our targets in by the end of the month he will go out on loan. I just hope then that one of the targets has his pace or we will miss him.

14 Aug 2017 19:29:20
Unless we've got someone lined up to come in with his pace I'd definitely keep him. Play him against teams in the bottom half from the start and bring him on after 60 minutes against top half. Looks a real threat to me but agree he's not ready to start 38 league games yet.

13 Aug 2017 19:43:21
Hi ed 02 do you know which strikers everton hold intrest and do you think we could go back in for zapata from napoli.

{Ed002's Note - Please read the posts.}

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2017 22:57:17
All moaners and gripers please take note it appears now the hold up in the Everton signing of Sigurdsson has been because of West Brom not being keen on Chadli leaving, now seems to be sorted and supposedly joinig this week so happy days with no more moaning for everyone, GuernseyBlue.

Agree6 Disagree16

13 Aug 2017 06:55:51
Not quite that simple.
But thanks for the advice anyway!

13 Aug 2017 09:47:42
While I see what Dave1878 is saying that its not that simple, I don't think GuernseyBlue was implying it is.

Really what imo he's getting at is the moaning people are doing. Especially the moaning at our own club and saying its the boards fault etc.

Imho GuernseyBlue is simply pointing out that it is more than likely not any fault to Everton or its representative's at all. If I'm incorrect GuernseyBlue please do correct me.

13 Aug 2017 10:01:46
That's what I took from it NBTB let's be positive and stop the moaning.
What happens when Gylfi is done, what will be the next thing to moan about? 🤔.

13 Aug 2017 12:04:48
When we loose.

13 Aug 2017 12:16:40
You hit the nail on the head there NBTB mate, that's exactly what I meant. on a lighter note Rooney was a breath of fresh air for us yesterday, never stop running ans superb passes, just hope the legs last I am sure RK will rotate, all the best GuernseyBlue.

13 Aug 2017 12:31:35
I would think there is blame on both sides, in fact no, blame is not the right word, both sides want the best deal they can get and that is perfectly reasonable IMO.

13 Aug 2017 12:31:35
anybody got any idea's where this story about talks breaking down with barks' came from. chatradio are reporting it, don't listen to the radio much just saw the headlines. the story is comprehensive like, in all but price of the transfer. is it true? someone is responsible for pouring cold water on the idea he might stay second story that he will leave since koeman' words, he certainly got that wrong. lol if it's true.

13 Aug 2017 19:54:27
Exactly ToffeeAL, so what's the point in giving out about the club we support? Not asking you directly just in relation to the thread.

13 Aug 2017 21:52:50
Everyone is entitled to there opinion, the people going on and on about other posters negativity are moaning themselves.

13 Aug 2017 23:40:38
No doubt OllBlue 1878, everyone is most defiantly entitled to their opinion. The constant moaning can get overwhelming at times though. Especially as we are only after our best transfer window ever and its not even over yet.

14 Aug 2017 00:29:53
Understand that nbtb, I haven't been more excited to go to the match in at least a decade, made up with our signings so far, but we still haven't addressed the lack of creativity, first half was one of the most boring halves of football I've ever seen, so I can understand why some fans are frustrated, we need to sign gylfi and a fast winger or striker, or start playing Lookman more often in my opinion mate.

12 Aug 2017 22:28:43
Seeing a link to Noah Fadiga at Club Brugge as the lad is only 17 is this another for the U23's?

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Aug 2017 09:33:57
God I've got a lot to say this morning. also I've heard a few people saying that Ross is glad to be back with the team and people whispering he's looking at his contract again.

I have had other saying that Ross is glad to be back training and is looking to show the world he's fit again in order to get a move away.

I've now just seen that spurs have published the kit numbers and number 8 has been left free, spurs fans were expecting the number to go to another squad member but are saying that it's actually been reserved for Barkley.

I wish I could just get in the boys head for a minute, make him wake up and realise what he's doing!

Agree3 Disagree1

12 Aug 2017 11:32:06
Yes Is a an excellent contribution for Everton football club. Freeing up some space and making way for Someone else. Really good of him. Boy did good.

12 Aug 2017 11:37:19
Not sure what reaction Ross would get signing a contract at this time. I think it's too late for most fans and the only benefit would be we would get a higher transfer fee in January.

12 Aug 2017 12:02:51
I think he would certainly need to apologise for his behaviour and the behaviour of his 'advisers'. That said if he proved he was fully committed to the club and gave his all on the pitch each weekend then I, for one, would get behind him.

12 Aug 2017 13:33:07
I'd be behind him the moment he pulls on the shirt leave the negativity to the others fans.

12 Aug 2017 13:49:05
I'm with you Southern Toffee.

12 Aug 2017 17:59:53
I do love Ross, but think he has gone, wish him well.

12 Aug 2017 18:14:00
Interesting to watch the schenanegins at Tottenham over low wages be interested to see what Ross is expecting having turned down £120k a week.

12 Aug 2017 22:20:19
Regards the number 8 being empty at Spurs that has been empty since Ryan Mason left so I wouldn't read into it being empty currently it's been empty a while.
