Is there any interest in Patrik Schik, the striker from Sampdoria? He was set to go to Juventus but it appears the deal has collapsed. He would be a great signing if we could pull it off.

While I, like many on this site, am frustrated with the amount of time the Sigurdsson deal is taking, I don't understand the people saying "it's just 5 million in today's market, just pay it and move on". This summer we spent about 5 mil on Sandro and he will be worth ten times that amount in 3 years. The board know that Sigurdsson wants to be a toffee and they're not going to be rushed into spending more than they have to. The revolution is upon us, and I for one couldn't be happier with our summer (Unless Giroud could have been convinced) .

Too right Denver Blue I wish I had 5 million.


2.) 12 Aug 2017 07:56:34
Agreed Denver blue and ToffeeAL.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:05:44
Not saying I disagree with you but you could flip it the other way and say hey we saved £5m there which effectively paid for Sandro!


4.) 12 Aug 2017 09:33:39
5 million could buy a great youth prospect or 2.


5.) 12 Aug 2017 09:58:26
Exactly Smit, just because we have money we don't need to be frivolous with it.

Actually I would have Jags on the bench instead of one of the full backs.

Bobby C-my subs bench would be Kenny, Holgate, McCarthy, Davies, DCL, Lookman, and Steklenberg.

With our first competitive game being a week away, how do you predict we line up in the first game? There are several positions that pick themselves, with the main questions being our right back, midfield pairing with Morgan, and the wingers. I believe Koeman will play a 4-3-3 selecting Pickford, Baines, Keane, Williams, Martina, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Klaassen, Sandro, Rooney, and Mirallas. Starting the season positively is crucial so I see him playing an experienced team, with playing more of the youngsters in the second leg if we have a comfortable lead.

Denver blue - I think your predicted lineup is a pretty good guess. It'll be interesting to see who is on the subs' bench.


2.) 20 Jul 2017 21:12:39
How fast things change under new regime. if that is the team line up, only two from the Martinez and moyse era inthe side. bainesy and Mirallas.


3.) 20 Jul 2017 23:07:17
I think he will go with 3 at the back

Pickford

Holgate Williams Keane

Lennon Davies Schneiderlin Gauye baines

Rooney Sandro

Or if he doesn't it will be 4.3.3.

Pickford

Martina Williams Keane Baines

Schneiderlin Guaye Davies

Rooney Sandro Klaasen

Subs:

Stekelenberg Holgate Besic McCarthy Lookman DCL Mirralas.

I'm not sure he will start Pickford or Sandro as they have had no game time with the rest of the squad although they might play on Saturday I would assume RK will think Stekelenburg is good enough against this opposition in the 3rd qualifying round and may start Mirallas, Rooney and Klassen the front 3 with the option of introducing Sandro in the second half.
Just my take on it.

I would love for Rooney to come back, but there's no way in hell paying 250,000 a week for him is a good move. I'm afraid that type of gap in wages could lead to squad unrest. But then again if he celebrates scoring a winner against the dark side it'll be well worth it 😊.

1.) 05 Jul 2017 07:56:27
As Ed2 says forget the money, makes life easier, he will step up, get fitter, and play for the jersey.


2.) 05 Jul 2017 17:30:54
I wish I could honestly say I thought Rooney coming back would be a good thing for us, but I just don't know. The wages could be an issue but if he comes on a free, then the overall cost of the reported 2-year contract is reasonable for someone with his on-field pedigree. It's the equivalent of a £16 million fee and wages of £100k/ week.

In the market at the moment, that seems like the going rate for average players. I agree with Denver that the rest of the squad may not see it like that and it could be disruptive. I also worry about how Lookman, Davies, Dowell, DCL will get opportunities in the first team, which they deserve.

Add in rumours about Giroud, who will only come if he'll get more game time than at Arsenal, Bolasie coming back from injury, and Kev. Presumably, Ross must be going? It'll be tough for those youngsters to develop with the competition for first team places. Still, it should be tough and I'd much rather be in this position than having a squad with no depth.

My only concern is it needs to be tough for Rooney to get in this team as well. No free passes based on reputation - he's got to be fit and hungry. My worry is he doesn't look either at the moment, but that could be due to factors at Man Utd.

Given the way business has been done so far, we have to trust the men in charge - they seem to have a plan this time! So lock up your grannies, close the casinos and welcome him back if he comes.


3.) 05 Jul 2017 17:35:35
Don't forget guys we are not paying a transfer fee.


4.) 05 Jul 2017 21:44:40
Dropped by Man Utd who had awful season. Dropped by England - we are now after the prime cuts not the scraps.

No Rhapsody, 2013-2014 was supposed to be their year but they let it slip 😂.

I believe they're talking about Calvin-Lewin, Berkshire . Autocorrect changes it to Lewis.

My dream summer would be signing Olivier Baumann for gk, Harry McGuire and Either Romanogli or VVD for CB, Gylfi Sigurrdson or Klassen for CAM, either Malcom from Bordeaux, the Nigerian lad Henry Onykeuru, or Helder Costa for a winger, and both Kasper Dolberg and Sandro for strikers. This would show the world that we are an ambitious club who will be fighting for silverware and the top four.
Hopefully we can get 3 points and a goal for Ross and Rom in their potential last game at Goodison in the Everton blue. Coyb.

I don't take this as a sign that we don't have money to spend. Looking at the squad we definitely need a new number 1, at least one first 11 center back, a new number 10 regardless of wether Ross leaves, cover for our full backs, a new winger, and a new striker (2 if Rom leaves) . If we were to spend 35 mil on a couple of players then it will be difficult to make all of the squad upgrades Koeman will want. We have the right people leading the club and the future is bright. Onwards and upwards.

I've been reading this page for years, and this may be the most negative post I've seen. While we haven't spent a lot of money in net transfers, we have drastically increased our wage bill.

We have signed quality players who greatly improve the squad. Sandro is an absolute steal at 5 mil and offers everything Rom doesn't (movement, link up play, and ball control) . We've signed two England internationals for the next several years in Pickford and Keane who are improvements on Robles and Jags. Wayne Rooney brings the winning pedigree to our squad that has been missing since the 80, and I believe he has more left in the tank than many give him credit for.

Henry Okenyoro ( spelling? ) has the potential to be a premier league star. Davy Klaassen is a born leader who knows where the back of the net is. While Martina isn't the most exciting signing, Koeman trusts him which is good enough for me.

There have been several transfer windows on the past where having a moan was more than understandable (summer of 2011 and summer of 2015 are two of the bigger ones for me) but this window is the polar opposite.
The blue revolution is fully in swing, and I for one can't wait for the season to start.

He would be a great replacement for Darron Gibson's spot on the training table.

I really hope that bobby wood link isn't true. I've watched him several times with the United States national team and I don't think he's top 7 quality. I feel we should be aiming for a better striker.

I can't see it happening, but I would love for us to sign Christian Pulisic. I have watched him play for Dortmund and for the United States national team several times, and he has preformed when the pressure is on (creating 2 goals in the champions league group knockout stage against benfica and drawing the match winning penalty in the cup final yesterday) . He is only 18 and already more consistent than Kevin Mirallas and all of our other wingers. he's scored and assisted more in mainly a substitute role than the majority of our team. On top of that, the commercial value he would bring here in the states would be, dare I say it, phenomenal.
