Interesting that we have not been linked with Fonte much. Apparently he won't sign a new deal at Southampton and our manager knows him very well.

Degsypulford

1.) 05 Jan 2017 17:29:02
He's 33. I'd rather we look for younger players.


2.) 05 Jan 2017 17:33:15
Fonte is a good player but we should look for younger defenders how many more over 30s in defence do we want van dyk would be my choice but can't see that happening so Keane, Gibson and smalling would do for me.


3.) 05 Jan 2017 22:14:40
Not that I'm entirely in the Fonte in gang but how many up and coming young CB are we going to sign too?

Ideally someone in mid twenties. We have Mori who is in that age group. Also have Holgate and Galloway who are round the 20 mark.

I wouldn't completely full out Fonte. We'd know exactly what we are getting. An injury to Williams and it looks like we'd be up sh*te street. As much as I like Jags and appreciate everything he has done as of late he's not performing.

Not saying I really want Fonte but can see plenty of positives about signing him. Look at it this way, he'd be 100 times better signing than Niasse.


4.) 05 Jan 2017 22:19:27
O yea, forgot to mention Browning and Matty Foulds. Are these 4 young CB's I mentioned going to get a chance?


5.) 06 Jan 2017 13:07:22
I think RK preferred backline is with a back 3 so we need legs at the back so i can see Galloway being given a chance next season on the left side of the 3 with Holgate on the right of the 3. We then need a strong central defender which seems to be Williams this season but he isn't the future.

So i can see why we wouldn't want or need Fonte as we would then have a player approaching 34 next season with no resale value who will not be getting game time.

VVD would be the ideal candidate but can't see that happening personally.
If we did pull it off that would be a good young footballing back 3 that could be the future of our club and the foundation to build upon.

This is just a little after thought and not really that important, but how come Ozil was pushing and shoving as they walked off at half time. he had to be restrained and basically lost it. Clattenburg did nothing? So Wenger moaning about Clattenburg who should really have sent Ozil off. Clattenburg was one of the ones restraining Ozil and telling him to calm down. yet he never even booked him?

Handbags. What is the ref supposed to do book every player for looking at someone the wrong way. Big Dunc would have been booked and sent off every game.

Sissoko has stiched us up. Plane on runway, Koemans calls ignored. Off to Spurs. let's wish him well when we play them and show what his loyalty means eh?

Degsypulford

1.) 31 Aug 2016 22:26:52
Let's laugh when he's warming the bench.

Cmon degsy not really for us eh overpriced and overrated!


 

 

30 Aug 2016 17:03:52
Apparently Axel Witsel's agent has just said that although his player was holding out for a transfer to Juventus, Everton have put in a serious proposition. He mentioned wages being a stumbling block with Juve. so I am guessing we have offered a substantial package to him? Interesting.

Degsypulford

1.) 30 Aug 2016 17:14:30
Forgot to say. perhaps Lukaku staying and Mirallas looking good again. aren't they all mates in the Belgium squad? And who is their new national manager. maybe just maybe more is going on than we imagined.


2.) 30 Aug 2016 18:36:32
Rarther than a money wasting panic buy, always had the view that an in form and motivated Mirallas, could play as a striker, particularly if were bringing in another winger.


 

 

29 Aug 2016 20:53:32
This Brahimi bloke looks top notch to me. I would be happy to add him and Sissoko to our numbers. Anyone seen the SKY REPORT about Moshiri telling them to "watch this space? "

Sounds interesting. Just hope the reds don't hijack our Brahimi signing as is rumoured.

Degsypulford

1.) 29 Aug 2016 21:29:40
Saw that report where Jim Whyte claims Moshiri had texted him. Can't see it myself. "Watch this space" is a well known quote from Bill Kenwright from several years ago. nowt happened when he said it.


2.) 29 Aug 2016 23:16:03
Brahimi is a quality player but I still don't feel he is a player we need. May as well sell Deulofeu if we get him. Still strongly against Sissoko.


3.) 30 Aug 2016 08:04:01
Wow Ander. you and me see football differently. Del boy is a promising young lad I agree. But he is a forward who has scored less goals than I have fingers on one hand in a lot more games. His defending is very poor. He has an amazing cross that worked in a few games for us. Have you watched Brahimi. He tackles back. His work rate is phenomenal. His skill is better that Delboys. His goals are regular and not just tap ins. I would say he is on a par with Mirallas when Mirallas is at his best. Ok he plays in a different league and the step to the premiership may be a big step. But from what I have seen, he is an all round player. Sissoko is a beast. Strong, skillful with an engine akin to McCarthy. However, whereas McCarthy tracks back and gets brilliant last ditch tackles in only to give the ball to Barry or another defender, Sissoko wants to drive forwards. like this new Geue bloke. The 2 of them together would make us like Leicester are now. so fast on the break. Give Lukaku a partner like allowing Barkley to push a bit further forwards or even Del boy. with Geuye and Sissoko in the middle and Mirallas and Brahimi each side. the pace would be like a formula one racing car. not a football team.


4.) 30 Aug 2016 09:00:09
Degsy, i agree with that but think you missed out Bolasie who is the quickest of them all.


5.) 30 Aug 2016 10:09:30
Yep Dave1878.I had forgotton him. wow what a pacey squad that would make. oh we are getting beat we need to make a change. let's take off a real fast player and bring on an even faster one. just when everyone is getting tired. In fact theoptions are amazing. let's switch Mirallas up front with Lukaku. let's put Bolasie up front with Lukaku. the options it would give us are amazing.


6.) 30 Aug 2016 11:07:49
Degsy, I'm by no means saying Deulofeu is better than Brahimi, Brahimi is better in every possible way except maybe crossing, I just don't believe in overcrowding a position. I think you should have your main 2 starters (Mirallas and Bolasie) and another good player who can challenge them and offer something different (Deulofeu) , then maybe an extra squad player to add depth in case more than one gets injured (Oviedo, perhaps) .

When you start having 4 or 5 £30m+ players competing for 2 spots rifts start to form in the squad and either one player gets completely left out or the manager tries to constantly rotate between them all to keep them happy but just hinders the chemistry of the team. While both have their positives, I'm a much bigger fan of the Barcelona or Ateletico philosophy of having a fairly small squad with great chemistry than the Real Madrid/ United philosophy of 'the more the merrier'.

I feel like Brahimi would be a good player, but if we sign him at least one of him, Bolasie, Mirallas or Deulofeu are going to spend the season warming the bench and while Deulofeu is by far my least favourite of the 3, it would be a shame to waste his potential.


And on Sissoko, I am aware of just how good he can be, but As I've said here before, my best friend is a Newcastle fan who goes to most of their away games and he couldn't stress enough to me how bad a signing Sissoko would be. He said he could be one of the best box to box midfielders in the world, but literally only when we're on TV. The rest of the time he is a lazy liability. Then after a season of fooling everyone but us into thinking he's quality, he'll try and jump ship for a Champions League team. Add on to that how our midfield combo of a deep lying playmaker and defensive destroyer like Gueye has done great so far and we simply don't need a box to box player.


7.) 30 Aug 2016 12:46:52
I have to agree with Degsy and just to add a bit that yes it may seem to overcrowd positions however what it means is we have different skilled players which can use to change a game, Brahimi can and does also play centrally so there is no end to options these signings could create.


8.) 30 Aug 2016 13:10:06
I hear what you are saying Ander. and I am not trying to be contravertial. but I prefer the big quality squad idea like Real Madrid and Man Utd. and I have to say Barcelona too. all the top clubs have at least 2 first team players for every position. that's why Arsenal used to put their kids in and beat us 7 nil in the league cup. Their kids were as good as our 1st team. Like I said in the 1st post. you just see it differently to me and sometimes that's the way it is. I accept your points. Final point. when Sissoko knows he has to fight for his place (and that's where Koeman is a million miles better than Martinez) he will either be the one on the bench or giving his all. Because Koeman will not tolerate the sort of moodiness that Martinez did. When I heard that Martinez had come in after Moyes and created a family atmosphere at Goodison I knew it was doomed to failure. To a degree it works, but do you think Sir Alex Ferguson had a family atmosphere at Old Trafford in all those successful years? No. he was the boss. Just like Koeman is now.

Someone put a post on here saying Tom Davies gave him memories of Alan Whittle. I am guessing the blonde locks and way he runs with the ball. But did you know, he is actually Alan Whittle's nephew!

I keep watching the the Heal that completely taxid clichy and yaya before he clown faced Bravo. Playground stuff cheeky little fecker.


2.) 16 Jan 2017 14:29:13
Robles then back 3 holgate Williams Mori, midfield 5, Coleman Davis Schneiderlin McArthy Baines, Barkley, Miralas, Lukaku. And then look at the bench, with hopefully more quality to come in this window. Good Summer Pre-Season and bring on 2017-18.


3.) 16 Jan 2017 14:38:16
Yes if Messi had of done it, it would be goal of the month, season, century etc. It was actually 2 pieces of quite brilliant ball control that have made me view him in quite a different way. At first I thought the kid had potential to make it. Now I believe he should be starting every game. albeit with Barry or Shneids or McCarthy alongside him for when the man marking starts. He will get targetted by the opposition now for sure. This is the best breakthrough we have had since Rooney. How old is he again? What will he be like when he is 25? Wow what a prospect. Sometimes as a manager, you have to fit a player into a system. At other times you have to change the system in order to accomodate the player (when they are really exceptional) . I would say this is one of those situations. He really is ready to face the big boys and be found out how good is he?


4.) 16 Jan 2017 14:45:28
Gana?


5.) 16 Jan 2017 14:34:03
Yes he is Alan Whittle's nephew but as a player he reminds me of the great Peter Reid the driving force of our great 80's side.
let's hope he continues to improve and with Moshiri here we do not have to sell him like we have sold so many in the past.


6.) 16 Jan 2017 21:00:20
Rakatic. He reminded me so much of him on Sunday. Does the dirty work feeds the front 3 but gets his share of goals as well.

If he gets to his level we will have some player on our hands.


 

 

16 Jan 2017 08:51:43
For personal reasons that was my first match for 2 years. Set off from Gunnislake Cornwall at 4am. Cost me about £200 for me andmy lad to go. Back row in the corner of the upper gladwys. I could see the whole of Goodison rocking and the most perfect view of Tom Davies' goal including the build up. Worth every penny! Every Blue fan was making every tackle and taking every shot and every pass for all of the players. It was genuine joy. I had a Blue from the USA next to me. As Blue as anyone! NBTB . Mirallas is starting to show again. Told you mate. As long as he don't get injured he is getting there! The overall pleasing thing was we played for each other. Robles ran the full length of the pitch to celebrate one goal. Like a cup final. Next week Palace will probably beat us 1 nil in a dour match. but at least we are starting to look like a team again. at times. Consistancy is what is needed now. Over to Mr Koeman. He is the right man ye doubters. of that I am sure!

Degsypulford

1.) 16 Jan 2017 09:30:04
Mirallas is back to his best and showing his true potential. I knew he had it in him. I just lost patience with him. For that I was wrong.

Glad you got to the game Degsy. You picked a good one. Koeman influence is growing. Defense has improved 10 fold. In half a season. We have the 4th or 5th least goals against. Even with the Chelsea game.

Next season we will be a force to be reckoned with. The window in the summer (Walsh) and Koeman instilling his style and tactics in the players. I expect us to be challenging right at the top.


2.) 16 Jan 2017 09:44:57
Agreed mate. I could see signs in Mirallas that he was getting back some weeks ago like I said. To be fair, if they had scored one of their early chances, another result might have developed. but we are starting to look like a team again. Not always pretty. but that suits me. I would rather not be pretty (like a Martinez team or Pep team) . I would rather have a winning mentality and grind some results. and batter other teams when the confidence is there. I think we just found a 50 million player in Tom Davies. He was everywhere and involved in everything. Barkley is starting to battle and tackle too. We must all not expect too much just now. It is still a rebuild project but like I said when you convinced me that Moshiri and Koeman were going to turn our club around, Walsh is the key. We can't keep signing 40 million players. we have to unearth gems from anywhere. Irish Leagues, Wirral Sunday Leagues, Afghanistan. anywwhere. Then leave Mr Koeman to make it gel. I can't believe people last week were calling for his head? This is 1000 times better than Martinez pointless possession football. We had 21% yesterday. 4 shots on target and won 4 nil. Lookman's stats are good. played 4 mins.1 goal! He should average about 24 a game if he continues like that. lol


3.) 16 Jan 2017 09:40:15
Lads don't get carried away with one good result. As for Mirallas too inconsistent for my liking and hasn't really done it over the years so should be sold in summer along with 6 or 7 others to make room for youngsters and new additions to squad to make us a real force next season.


4.) 16 Jan 2017 10:21:59
You are kidding Mondomac? Sell Mirallas just when he is getting back to his best and popping goals and assists into his game again? Ok let's take your scenario. We sell him for say 15-20 million. Now we have about 120 million available for players. Please provide me with a list of players who want to sign for Everton. Who are available for release from their clubs. Who are within the budget just described and are better than Mirallas. Because I for one don't know any players who fit that crirerea. So once Mirallas is gone and our budget improved, who is goind to provide the goals and assists? Out of the 4 goals yesterday, he provided 2 assists and 1 goal. Against Manchester City. Over to you.


5.) 16 Jan 2017 11:26:38
Have to agree with Degsy on Kev, He was in great form down the right with Coleman whne playing under DM. When RM took over his consistency went down the pan alomg with his form and fitness. Under RK he has gradually got his fitness back and starting to get his form back. I don't think he is fully fit but over the last couple of game he is starting to show his true capabilities. Why sell him its unlikely that we will get a better player for the money we will recuperate and if he continues to play like he did yesterday then why would you want to get rid anyway?


6.) 16 Jan 2017 11:34:05
Totally with everything you say Degsy. Mondomac no one is getting carried away. If you read my post you would see that I said next season we will be a real force.

Not getting carried away with one result. Albeit against a team that has probably spent 10 times what we have in the last 5 years. Won plenty.

Its more of a combination of the improvement from last season. As I said especially in defense. For reasons outlined above. The overall fantastic direction the club is going in.

If I'm getting carried away by highlighting all the positive things that are happening to our great then to I'm guilty.

I'm listening to plenty of Reds getting jealous with us. That is evidence enough to me that we are heading in the right direction. If I'm getting carried away I apologise.

The trio that came to our club last year Moshiri, Koeman and Walsh imho will bring this club to the next level. When? Who knows? But its in the post.


7.) 16 Jan 2017 11:47:22
What has he done over the years? One good game in ten is not good enough. RK is building a team that's his job. He will not tolerate slackers. Imo Mirallas not good enough due to lack of consistency. As for getting 15-20m for him your having a laugh.


8.) 16 Jan 2017 12:11:23
sa90 you read my mind on Mirallas. Exactly my opinion on him in regard to the previous 2 managers. I would even add Martinez obviously fell out with him. All too regular he was on the bench. Then about 87mins into the game Martinez would put him on. Very frustrating for Mirallas. He even got sent off for a rash challenge after being on by Martinez with only a couple of mins to go.

No doubting his ability and I agree with what you say about him. I thought that the damage was done by our previous manager. I was impatient. I'm glad Degsy and Mirallas proved me wrong. I hope he kicks on from here.

Mondomac, £15m at least yea. £10m is being touted for Fonte and he is 33. I'm aware his position will tolerate older age but Mirallas isn't 30 yet. So at the very least I would expect £15m.

I totally agree with Degsy on where would we get a player that's better? Extremely difficult to do so. His confidence and overall mental state was battered under Martinez. Not using him and when he did only when a game was over. Martinez also had a similar effect on Distin.

They get paid well yes, but for the good of the team they should be kept with a positive attitude.


9.) 16 Jan 2017 12:55:15
Degsy you better bring the young lad to all the home games. A good luck luck charm if you don't and we miss champions league it's your fault:) P. S we should all get carried away we don't get the chance enough. Kev won't be sold Mondo he's definitely in our best squad even with a couple more in. It's pitty we can't play arsenal and city weekly


10.) 16 Jan 2017 13:02:31
I agree on all of the points here even Mondomac. One game doesn't make player. However, all of these player are having to learn a new way of playing and the ones that should go are the ones that don't learn or improve. The ones that should stay are the ones looking to put in the work.

Kev was given a number of tasks by Koeman at the start of the season to lose weight. He did it. Koeman then said to him to lose more weight. He did that too.

That is the type of player that we want. Someone who will earn that respect and I am starting to love Kev again. It's up to him now to grab hold of his chance and make that spot his own.


11.) 16 Jan 2017 14:24:38
I hope your right NBTB. I'm not on here to put any player down and hope Mirallas plays like he can on a consistent basis. Time will tell. For me the jury is still out on him so we will see now to end of season how he fares. I know one thing RK has shaken up the squad with his comments during the week, fair dues to him, top boss 😎

11 Jan 2017 08:45:36
I can't say I know Schneiderlin as a player. Don't really remember him. So I will get excited when he puts a decent shift in or two. However, I hear he is a defensive mid. So my fingers are now crossed that we get someone in with a bit of creativity. Our midfield is filled with defensive mids: McCarthy, Barry, Besic, Shneiderlin, Gana, Cleverly are all mainly defensive and Gibson always injured. Our other creative players are in the main wingers. so centrally we are still crying out for a creative player. Barkley is the obvious answer as well as the new boy Tom Davies. But Barkley has blown hot and cold and Davies is as yet a little raw. But when he has played, you can see the difference he makes to us as an attacking force. Imagine Mata or Payet or another similar player with us and you will see what I mean. (and I never mentioned Pienaar nor Osman once there! lol)

Degsypulford

1.) 11 Jan 2017 08:57:30
Degsy - yes MS is a DM, but he is more of a creative DM than McCarthy or Barry which will make a big difference.

Him and Gana both are excellent at winning the ball and playing it forward but also their positional play is superb. This is where the real benefit will come creatively as it will free up Barkley a bit more to be more creative.


2.) 11 Jan 2017 09:08:18
Desynchronise one word, Sigurdsson. He would be perfect as our attacking midfielder mate.


3.) 11 Jan 2017 09:38:05
I agree Degsy. We need a dew more creative players. Depay and Sigurdsson would really give us an edge and we also need another striker.

The guy from Leige doesn't look great on the stats front but maybe he just needs a run of games at a suitable club. He is doing better this season due to playing regularly. I think Koeman is desperate to get that 4-4-2 system going


4.) 11 Jan 2017 11:05:17
I hear what you all say. Interesting times for sure. let's all cross our fingers, toes and any other body parts that will cross and hope for the bit of luck that seems to have always fallen on our red neighbours. That is the one bit of the jigsaw where we have always lacked I feel. They say hard workers seem to have more luck. but maybe it is time we had our fair share now?


5.) 11 Jan 2017 13:49:03
sigurdson would cost to much (even if they agreed to sell) given our present budget and 10 plus 24 million already spent while not exactly a poor club we are still not within the realms of Utd, City, Arsenal, Liverpool et al and as such we have to be fiscally prudent. Some of you just think that overnight we have become able to throw money at players, that is not the case.


6.) 11 Jan 2017 18:20:41
I believe Cleverly, Gibson and McCarthy will be on the move if the offer is right. Morgan is an upgrade on all if these players and will be the partner for Gana, with Barry and Davies as cover

I can get on board with that Degsy. I think a lot of the long time posters on here get it. We may disagree on a lot of things, but at the end of the day we support our team as best we can.

I'm getting fed up with all of the boo boys, who are making comments when in reality they have no idea how a football club is run, how transfers work, and how money is handled within a club (I'm not saying I know a lot, but then again I try not to pass comment when I don't know) .

A large portion of knuckle-draggers, who think that Moshiri's arrival should signal instant top 4 and Messi signings (I've heard he can't wait to play with erm. Lennon and Cleverley) are now spoiling the atmosphere on here and at the match by moaning and spreading venom and bile wherever they go, all the while still wondering where the Arteta money has gone.

I can't believe SA90 saying take it. Whatever you think of Ross. transfers are stupid now. look how we spent the 40 million from Man City that we got for Stones. so we would be selling the one creative midfielder we have in our squad (even if you think he is rubbish. he is the only creative one ready for 1st team except perhaps Tom Davies) and we would have 35 million to spend on who? Bolasie was around 25 million and Williams at 31 was 12 million. Who has a creative midfielder better than Ross Barkley for sale (and remember he adds to the English contingent of our squad) for 35 million and is willing to sell? So basically just get rid?

My view on it is that Moshiri was genuinely excited at us finally landing Sissoko (so he believed) and he expected Sissoko to be on the plane and straight in for his medical and signing on forms. What none of us had accounted for was that either Sissoko or his agent had lied through their teeth hoping that we would prompt Spurs into action. which we did. The original story about Sissoko not answering his phone to Mr Koeman has a ring of truth to me. especially when it was stated that everything was in place but Sissoko went missing. Furthermore, I believe the statement that came later saying we had pulled out of the deal was done to "save face". It allows the club to look like we were not snubbed and allows Sissoko to move on with his career looking like a decent bloke. (which in my opinion he is not! )

He will get targetted by the opposition now for sure. This is the best breakthrough we have had since Rooney. How old is he again? What will he be like when he is 25? Wow what a prospect. Sometimes as a manager, you have to fit a player into a system. At other times you have to change the system in order to accomodate the player (when they are really exceptional) . I would say this is one of those situations. He really is ready to face the big boys and be found out how good is he?

Being all the way down in Cornwall, I find that really refreshing to hear. Unsworth was a great servant as a player and tried to move to Villa if you remember but his heart was touched by Everton in the same way all of us was. Some players view Everton as an employer. but some fall in love and will always only have that one love. Big Dunc, Howard Kendall and Dave Hickson to name a few. I love the Dave Hickson quote, "I would have broken bones playing for other clubs, but I would have died playing for Everton". That still brings a lump to my throat. Rhino is one of a similar ilk. Although his quote would probably be, "I would have died for Everton whilst breaking the bones of opposition players! "

You are kidding Mondomac? Sell Mirallas just when he is getting back to his best and popping goals and assists into his game again? Ok let's take your scenario. We sell him for say 15-20 million. Now we have about 120 million available for players. Please provide me with a list of players who want to sign for Everton. Who are available for release from their clubs. Who are within the budget just described and are better than Mirallas. Because I for one don't know any players who fit that crirerea. So once Mirallas is gone and our budget improved, who is goind to provide the goals and assists? Out of the 4 goals yesterday, he provided 2 assists and 1 goal. Against Manchester City. Over to you.
