A lot of rumours flying about new over new signings. Seems it's all just a guessing game. One name I have seen banded about is Seb Haller. Would love us to go for him although we'd have to break the bank. Another player we missed out on a couple of years back when we could have got him cheap. Anything on your end Eds?

BitterBlue

{Ed001's Note - the striker I heard mentioned, no idea if it is likely or not though, is from RB Leipzig (I think) Jean-Kevin Augustin.}


1.) 05 Jun 2019 12:50:22
Not sure what I think of him tbh Ed. From what i've seen of him he prefers to play down the channels instead of through the middle and seems to like to be on the ball a lot which is something a striker must sacrifice in order to get into the right positions and make clever runs. If we were to sign him i'd imagine it'd be as an inverted winger as he does possess good passing ability and have good pace but as far as being a striking option I just don't think he's suited to us. Not only this but Everton like to play with a lone striker, whenever Augustin has played for Leipzig he's tended to play in a 2 up front so there's question as to whether he can lead the line by himself.


2.) 05 Jun 2019 21:37:39
Hi Eds, Lookman off to Southampton? Have you anything on that one.

{Ed001's Note - apparently there is interest from them yes. I don't know if Everton are willing to sell or loan him though.}


 

 

26 May 2019 23:50:19
Can any of the Ed's shed any light on the reported interest the club holds in Allan Saint-Maximin? Looks to be a fantastic player on his day although his end product leaves a lot to be desired. Also questionable as to whether he fits the profile of a 'Silva player', he doesn't seem to have a great work ethic which is a prerequisite for all of the players MS has bought into the club.

BitterBlue

{Ed002's Note - Milan continue discussions over signing Allan Saint-Maximin (RW) but the fixed €40M asking price remains an issue. There have also been talks with Newcastle who continue to look for a RW, but he is third choice for them, and Crystal Palace who see him as a potential Zaha replacement. Monaco, Everton, Roma and Arsenal have all sent scouts to watch him - but Monaco opted for another player.}


1.) 27 May 2019 11:13:11
Cheers Ed, great info as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 28 May 2019 08:49:42
Hi Eds, looks like Barcelona want £25to 35 mil for Gomes what's our chances mate?

{Ed002's Note - Put aside the money - Everton will have spoken to the player and explained that they would like to buy him. He will want to look at what options he has before deciding - and if a side that can offer Champions League football were to make a suitable offer, then that would be considered. Realistically, Everton have a good chance of signing him.}


3.) 28 May 2019 14:35:59
Well that's West Ham out then. Thanks Ed.


4.) 28 May 2019 15:12:53
Looks like Spurs have made a bid for Lo Celso, I would imagine Gomes will come to us now.

{Ed002's Note - There is a lot of interest in Lo Celso.


5.) 28 May 2019 16:42:42
Hi Ed,

I know this isn't strictly Everton related but which teams are interested in Lo Celso?

{Ed002's Note - Giovani Lo Celso (CM) was a Plan B to AG for Everton but in reality he could be more expensive than him after Real Betis signed him and are looking to treble their money (in reality they might be able to double it) - very unlikely; Spurs have a sustained interest in the player; he is one of two players Manchester City are considering as better priced and more achievable options to previous targets; Atletico Madrid see him as an option to a player they may have lost out on.}


6.) 28 May 2019 21:43:37
All these so called rumours we want him we interested in him gods sake half is just media talk I read all the rumours then nothing matiralizes plus I no it’s only end of may I can see us slowly coming out the blocks Gomez should be sorted by now players we interested in can see us being outbid by other team love transfer window bloody hate it as well rant over lol.


7.) 28 May 2019 22:51:16
Brilliant as always Ed!


 

 

24 May 2019 15:45:40
Jonas Lossl will join Everton on July 1 on a 3 year contact running until 2022. It will be a free transfer. Shrewd bit of business if you ask me, a better option than Stek as a backup and will most likely be on less wages. Got a mate who's a Huddersfield fan and he said he's a cracking keeper but just had a terrible team in front of him. Thoughts blues?

BitterBlue

1.) 24 May 2019 15:57:58
I agree is a shrewd piece of business for a back up to Pickford who also played behind a shocking defence before he joined us from a relegated side. Should allow finances to be applied elsewhere to improve the squad
Hopefully the young lad Virginia can get some development time on loan.


2.) 24 May 2019 16:25:31
That would be my guess ST, I hear Silva rates Virginia quite highly so a season on loan playing regular first team football will likely be on the cards next season.


 

 

03 Apr 2019 16:05:54
Hey Ed, it's not often that I get snippets of inside info although I try and share what I do receive. Someone who has never failed me in the past with his info has said that the club is very interested in 4/ 5 players from Ligue 1, he wouldn't divulge any further into names but i'm assuming one is Leao, any other names that you know of?

BitterBlue

1.) 04 Apr 2019 05:30:36
Meunier probably.


2.) 04 Apr 2019 14:03:07
Wasn’t this a twitter thread from someone who met Brands on a train? He said he saw 2 Portuguese flags under players and another 3 with Porto badges on Brands iPad. He said he thought it was Fekir/ Memphis, Ndombele, Maxwells Cornet, Leao. Which leaves one more Portuguese player from Ligue 1. Personally I don’t believe it but that’s the rumour.


3.) 04 Apr 2019 14:13:27
Not Porto badges. Lyon. Sorry.


4.) 04 Apr 2019 15:41:07
May very well be Efc Jor, I’m not on twitter though so I couldn’t be sure. The same guy told me about Bradley Moore months before it happened and Rooney coming back a good few months before it happened so I’m inclined to believe him.


 

 

09 Jan 2019 15:36:19
So it turns out the Gabriel Barbosa link was a load of BS as he has signed for Flamengo for the rest of the season.

BitterBlue

{Ed002's Note - That was explained ages ago.}


1.) 09 Jan 2019 15:40:06
We were never going to get him, pure journalistic rubbish mate.


2.) 09 Jan 2019 15:44:52
Cheers Ed, I haven't been on the site in a fair while so hadn't noticed. I can't say i'm too bothered either.

{Ed002's Note - You are right not to be.}

Another good display against one of the 'top 6' today. Some really promising signs from this Everton team since March, depending on our recruitment over the summer i think we can really push the top 6. I actually think we deserved the win today, had the better chances and played better football than Tottenham. Despite having 3 key first team players out it's encouraging to see that we can still get a result at a good team away from home and look comfortable in doing so.

BitterBlue

1.) 12 May 2019 20:09:56
Agree with all of that Bitter! . Promising signs indeed. Now the focus must shift into Zouma and Gomes.


 

 

08 May 2019 23:06:26
Watching those Champions League semi-finals is incredibly hard to take. The emotion both Liverpool and Tottenham fans must be feeling now is something I'm envious of, and not many other things in life can give you that buzz other than the beautiful game. That is exactly what we should be aspiring for, incredible nights like those under the Goodison floodlights but we are a million miles away from both teams unfortunately. How has such a great club like ours fallen from such a height? I can only pray that we return to our former glory within my lifetime.

Our day will come blues. I just don't know when haha.

Hey Eds, I was just wondering whether the club holds any interest in David Brooks from Bournemouth. Fits the player criteria laid out by Brands perfectly plus I remember reading about interest in him a couple of years back when he was still at Sheff Utd. I think that is an area Everton are alarmingly short in at the moment, with only Sigurdsson who can play that position effectively. Seems destined for bigger things although I'm sure most teams will be put off by the fee Bournemouth would likely demand. Probably in the region of £30 million.

BitterBlue

{Ed025's Note - it may be even higher than that BB, hes a very good young talent but i have not heard of any links with us mate, but as you say he does fit the brands brief so we will have to see..


1.) 01 May 2019 19:11:06
I find it pretty ironic that we only have one number 10 this season when last season we had about 32 of them.


2.) 01 May 2019 22:13:10
We had a look at Brooks a few seasons back then pulled out of it, missed the boat with that one sure it was Martinez who was sniffing.


3.) 02 May 2019 22:39:11
Would love Brooks at Everton would be perfect but it seems clear to me that buying British players does not fit in with Silva or Brandts very sad would love this guy if possible.


4.) 03 May 2019 07:05:08
Top top younger Player.


 

 

24 Apr 2019 17:31:27
Hey Eds, was just wondering what the consensus is on Onyekuru. Is he rated by many in the Turkish game and more importantly those within EFC? Can you provide us with an idea as to what type of player he is? Do you see the lad having a future with us?

I have to say that I've seen virtually nothing of him as I don't intend to watch the Turkish league although I have seen he's scored a few goals there.

BitterBlue

{Ed001's Note - he has impressed there hence the recent interview regarding why he turned down PSG. He is hoping to come back and be a part of the first team squad next season.}


1.) 24 Apr 2019 17:59:53
Cheers Ed, hard to see how he'd get in the team given the relationship Bernard and Digne have struck up down that left hand side. If we qualify for Europe this season he could prove a useful asset though.

p. s. hopefully no hard feelings over the Ozil debate the other week Ed ;)

{Ed001's Note - none mate.}


2.) 24 Apr 2019 18:04:25
You're a good sport Ed.

{Ed001's Note - life is too short to hold grudges. Plus, at my age remembering anything for longer than 10 minutes is hard work!}


3.) 24 Apr 2019 20:26:10
Good shout Ed mate.

{Ed001's Note - my best friend, when he was with us, was a Man utd fan from Manchester. We very rarely agreed on anything, but we never held it against each other. There is no point, a good disagreement is fun.}


4.) 24 Apr 2019 23:03:57
It is only fun Ed001 but it's more fun if you're right 😁.

{Ed001's Note - it's lucky I am always right. Though I did think I was wrong once but it turned out I was mistaken.}


5.) 25 Apr 2019 12:19:08
001 I also have a Man U best friend, we are still best friends even after Sunday although he declined a drink after the game as he could not face me and went home.

{Ed001's Note - I can understand that, I had to face mine many a time when the shoe was on the other foot. It is not fun!}


 

 

10 Apr 2019 21:35:05
Brands spotted at Old Trafford tonight. Perhaps meeting with Barcelona representatives to negotiate a deal for Gomes? Get us Malcom while you're there please Marcel ;)

BitterBlue

1.) 11 Apr 2019 13:12:21
Rom is coming back.


2.) 11 Apr 2019 14:37:52
Probably just there to watch the footy lol.

Sangare is a fantastic player Eddy, an upgrade on Gueye in my opinion.

Has to be said, if West Ham pull that Pablo Fornals deal off it'll be the coup of the summer. Shame we didn't go in for him.

I wouldn't go anywhere near Mitrovic, his attitude stinks. Looks completely disinterested most of the time and he certainly wouldn't suit the playing style we're trying to implement.

I have no quarrels with him being a squad player bluepotato but as a starter? If we are to kick on surely a higher quality of player is needed in the middle of the park?

Make no mistake Schneiderlin has come in and done a decent job in Gomes' absence but to say he's an adequate replacement is far off the mark. If we want to improve we have to sign a higher calibre of player than MS, remember this guy has been missing for almost 2 seasons and because he's had 3 decent games you want him back in the team full time? Thankfully, I don't believe this will be Brands or Silva's plan.
