Told yesterday that the club has an extensive list of players they are looking at this summer and that we are likely to spend big.
With the FFP hanging over City for next season there is every chance that 5th will be enough for CL and Farhad wants us to go all out for it.

We certainly seem to be getting linked to the right players and I can see problems at United, Chelsea and Arsenal - so not beyond realms of possibility we can finish above a couple of them. Fingers crossed.

here's hoping we can do it pal.

Well let’s hope it’s not too big or we will fall foul of FFP ourselves especially given we have a lot of players to move on and will take a number of hits on them so won’t be getting funds in that way to balance the books.

I agree I think top 4 is as open as it’s ever been Man City Liverpool are way ahead but like you said problems for a lot of clubs and bear in mind spurs lost 20 games in all comps last year and still finished top 4 and champions league final, we look as though we have a direction for the first time, recruitment looks to be right under Brands and Marco.
11/ 1 for top 4 is not bad odds.

16/ 1 with Ladbrokes for top 4. May throw few quid on that.

16/ 1! Rotton odds I would want at least 25/ 1 to take a risk lol.

It's nice to dream but we won't finish top 4 next season. I just can't see it happening. Yeah teams above aren't in a great position but teams around us are. There is a lot more comitition in the league than just the teams that finished in the top 6. Realistically there are 9 teams going for the top 4 and 6.

Sounds very simple to say if we want him just go and sign him.
Unfortunately, unless you are one of the real top clubs, then likely players will want to hang on to see if any better options whether that be money, Europa League, CL.
I'm sure the club would love to have everyone signed and on the pre-season trip, but that just isn't reality.

There is a reason why market goes mad before the close of the window and a large part is due to the fact that players / agents have assessed their options and given up waiting for better offers.

Trust in Marcel.

And I’m sorry but to compare Costa and Delph is embarrassing.
Marcel has never said he wouldn’t buy older players just that we wouldn’t spend fortunes on players with no resale value - I think Farhad can sleep easily for £8m!
Costa brings a whole load of issues - though part of me would love him IF he is still the player he was 2 seasons ago but Delph is a team player. Plays where he is asked and does a good professional job FOR THE TEAM.

Remember the moaning when Barry signed
And then the crying when he left

Or imagine Twitter when we signed Paul Power.

It’s about balance people.
It’s about knowing the character of people
And you don’t get that from 10 mins highlights on MOTD.

He’s a good solid signing.
There are plenty more to come so keep the moaning until the window closes.

Do some of the people who post on here ever actually go to watch Everton?
Or live football at all for that matter.
Delph is not a statement signing. I don’t believe he will be the replacement for GG either, more an additional Centre mid for the squad.
Gomes, GG ( or replacement) , Tom D, Delph and maybe Morgan. We need that many.

Pep has chosen him for 33 EPL games in past 2 seasons. Granted a lot at LB but also in Centre mid.
Delph brings leadership, bite, a winning mentality and experience. All things our relatively young team is lacking.
It’s all about balance people and when Marcel and Marco start getting things wrong then we can complain - but everything has worked out so far so let’s trust them eh.

Tosun knows where the net is but i'm not sure he has the first touch or the pace for what MS wants.
He showed when he arrived he can score goals but we play a different style now than we did under Fat Sam.

As regards Richarlison, he is clearly happier out wide so leave him there. He scored more goals from the left side BUT probably gave us more balance when he played right as we then had two good partnerships - Digne / Bernard and Coleman / Richarlison.

I keep hearing from Ed002 that we have too many left wingers. Yet we don't actually have a left footed left winger. So maybe Marco just wants the option?

For me, Mirallas can go, Walcott not good enough, Lookman has all the ability but by all accounts a poor attitude - so suddenly we are light on the flanks.

Richarilson and Bernard as the first choice wide men. Lookman and A. N. other as back up.

But if we are serious about top 6 ( and dare I say top 4) then we definitely need someone more prolific than Tosun or DCL.

Great from the bench or in DCL case in a couple of years. But we have had enough of 'manana'. Beed a top striker now.

Lookman has been overlooked by 3 managers. What do you think the common denominator may be?
Dowell has been in and out at two different championship clubs. NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Beni couldn’t get a game at Wigan
Holgate still learning. Not convinced he is tall enough for a centre half but went out for experience
JJK - opinion is divided but for me he is not good enough. Was given a chance but didn’t grasp it

You really need to actually go to some games and watch these players before jumping on the ‘ doesn’t give youngsters a chancd’ Bandwagon.
If they are good enough age shouldn’t matter

But first thing is they need to be good enough.

Unfortunately he is one of those who think the world revolves around him. He was only ever interested in HIM. Yes he scores goals but the team spirit and work ethic is so much better without him. DCL is not yet the answer but the lad gives so much more to the team than Rom ever did. Big NO from me.
