Read today that Galatasaray are in talks to sign Henry Onyekuru on a permanent deal. I know his loan seems to be going well with them. I think it would be a shame if true. We never got to see the lad apart from when he signed for us out of the blue. Bloody work permits!

Howie1878

1.) 23 Jan 2019 13:27:01
I'd love to see him in a blue shirt next season think he could wonders in the premiership, definitely would be a shame not to see what he can do and sell him and probably watch him go onto be a top player.


2.) 23 Jan 2019 13:41:11
what can he do?


3.) 23 Jan 2019 15:14:53
Score goals by the looks of it.


4.) 23 Jan 2019 15:24:17
Play through the middle comfortably, has pace to burn and score goals. Could save us a fortune on a striker. He said a while back he wants to play for us and can't see us selling a player who hasn't yet played for us, who had teams not long ago like bayern, looking at him as a player to sign. Why sell?


5.) 23 Jan 2019 19:23:33
Why keep him if he can't ever play for us? Without a work permit, which I'm sure Ed002 says he's unlikely to get, he'll never get to wear the shirt. Whoever signed him clearly didn't do their homework and just assumed he'd be okay.


6.) 23 Jan 2019 19:44:16
Ed002 said we might get a permit on special conditions.
I don't think he's far away on the points total so possibly could get him under special conditions.

What is ironic is over paying for a player can help with a work permit and he is probably the only player we signed in that period that we didn't massively overpay for.


7.) 24 Jan 2019 01:14:04
ah. scores goals in the Turkish league.
Hey. just like Cenk.


8.) 24 Jan 2019 11:17:26
Chinchin he also scored goal in Belgium league. Don't know if he will score in Premier league unless given the chance to do so. For all we know, he could light up the Premiership.


9.) 24 Jan 2019 11:20:19
Chin chin he didn't only score in turkey he scored in Belgium as well I know not the biggest of leagues but he's scored in champions league I know you will point out that cenk scored in Turkey in champions league but the one thing Henry has that cenk dosent have and that is pace.


10.) 24 Jan 2019 11:45:44
It is hard to believe that he cannot get a work permit given the connections with Nigeria as a club and city being both commercial and cultural. Seems wrong to me.


11.) 24 Jan 2019 12:59:23
you do know the stipulations for being eligible for a work visa?


12.) 24 Jan 2019 13:02:06
and Tosun played for all German national teams aged 23 and under and also scored in the Champions League.
See where were going here.


13.) 25 Jan 2019 15:19:39
Henry Onyekuru is a top top player and a different class to Cenk Tosun. He has much more in his locker. I’ll be gutted if we sell him but if we can’t get him on the pitch then guess it’s the only other option. He’ll be playing for one of the best clubs in Europe in the near future, he’s class.


 

 

15 Jan 2019 17:00:24
Tyias Browning off to China? Also a championship club rumoured as well
David Unsworth said there maybe some news to be revealed soon allegedly.

Also another rumour is Batshuayi stalling on a possible move to Monaco amid Evertons interest. I don't know what the deal is with the links to him all the time as Ed002 has pointed out numerous times that this is a highly unlikely move.

Howie1878

1.) 15 Jan 2019 18:33:02
Tyias Browning is of some Chinese heritage, maybe the China links are genuine.


2.) 15 Jan 2019 22:46:15
Ed002 Is pretty knowledgeable but there’s no way he could know anymore on incomings or outgoings than what is already being spouted in the media, maybe the Batshuayi rumours are true maybe not, but the horses mouth has said that if players are sold then we could do some business (something like that) we will have to wait and see.


3.) 16 Jan 2019 00:01:50
Or he’s been seen buying new China cups.


 

 

04 Jan 2019 16:17:41
I see a few rumours regarding Barcelonas 24 year old midfielder Denis Suarez. Malcom wants to stay at Barcelona they claim so Suarez is possibly another option available.
A likely fee is said to be in the region of £9 million. I don't believe it myself.

We are in desperate need of a striker and a right midfielder. I do love the transfer speculation though. If indeed PSG do sign Gueye from us then I for one will be sad to see him go. As stated in Ed02's sharkopod it's not just Gana linked as PSG have been in contact with Watfords Doucoure as well.

Howie1878

{Ed0333's Note - Dennis Suarez for 9 million?...that’s doesn’t sound right to me mate.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 17:26:14
This is one of just several reasons why I don't believe it myself. Another reason is that I'm sure I read before he was linked with a possible transfer to Arsenal or Chelsea.


2.) 04 Jan 2019 18:00:54
9 million is possibly his wages for the year, on loan.
If we could get 20 mill for Gana and get doucoure for 35 i'd snap PSGs hand off.
Doucoure would be a beast alongside Gomes.


 

 

02 Oct 2018 16:40:41
Sky Sports News reports that Alisher Usmanov is again linked to Everton after comments made to Russia 1 (I think) . He is alleged to have said,

"Everton is still far from where it should be. We will also help him. And how. This is my friend's club. "

They are quite speculative about what the comments could possibly mean such as stadium investment, general investment or co ownership but until anything concrete happens it's nothing news. Maybe something is in the pipeline then?

I read on BBC Sport that Manchester United have bid £35 million for Mina and it could happen today, according to the latest gossip. That's what they've said. So in other words they don't know. This has taken a long time to get sorted though I know that much.

Howie1878

1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:59:24
Don't believe it, he will come to us, if we weren't confident, we would of pulled out along time ago, it's all getting abit late in the day now, do man UTD really need another un proven defender, no they need players who are top of there game, if mourinio doesn't get it right this season he will be off.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 16:48:37
go down to the last day with yerry mina i'm afraid us yanited or lyon it'll be.


3.) 07 Aug 2018 17:40:03
It's time we moved on from mina and try for other targets it's clear we are only being used as a last resort we should go for Lille centre back Adam soumaoro who looks a strong defender ideally suited to premier league.


4.) 07 Aug 2018 19:43:48
Mina and his agent say he wants C. L football like David2012 says let's move on and get someone who want to come.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 20:08:29
How good is Mina?

{Ed025's Note - not seen that much of him really DFS, what i have seen he is very strong, good in the air and a huge threat at set pieces, negatives would be that hes not the quickest and can look a bit clumsy at times, others may have different views on him but thats mine for what its worth mate..


6.) 07 Aug 2018 21:07:29
Sounds like you've just described funes mori and we've just let him go for next to nothing.


7.) 07 Aug 2018 21:17:51
We could defiantly do with a centre back with some pace as we have enough slow central defenders as it is.


8.) 09 Aug 2018 10:07:35
We should of well walked away by now, would hope we learned from putting all our eggs in one basket over a striker last summer window.

I see Sky Sports claim we are interested in Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic. I know some fans would like him but I'm not convinced. He misses too many chances and I don't think he's that big an improvement on what we already have. A better quality striker I thought we'd be aiming for but it depends on who is available I suppose.

Howie1878

{Ed025's Note - mitrovic has an attitude problem howie very much like arnautovic, both very good players but come with a lot of baggage mate..


1.) 17 May 2019 18:51:43
So far the linked names of Mitrovic and Lossl don't instill me with much hope. I am expecting better quality players. I can't see Gomes or Zouma coming on permanent deals either but I hope to be wrong there.
Also sorry Ed I didn't see this was posted previously and I was supposed to post it in the rumours section.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..


2.) 17 May 2019 19:42:40
Howie the windows been open 24 hours mate have some faith in brands, he's not let us down so far has he.


3.) 17 May 2019 21:41:57
I didn't say he had and I have more faith in him than I ever did with Steve Walsh. I'm just not exactly enthralled with who we've been linked with so far that's all.


4.) 17 May 2019 22:06:09
No reports of richarlison, Bernard or Digne last season until they were holding the shirt up.
I can't see anything the papers reporting as interest as being correct.


5.) 18 May 2019 08:33:32
I read in ssn that we looking at Bertrand Traore and
Jean Kevin Augustine
Just googled both strikers and they look ok on their videos but then again who doesn’t apart from me at the beach 🤣
Big C.


6.) 18 May 2019 10:23:15
I’m not his biggest fan but if you look at it the guy scored 11 goals and 3 assists in a side that were relegated months ago, his work rate is good, strong powerful in the air, I think it is a deal that has great value to it, we have wasted a lot of money over years on players who couldn’t perform in this league. He is 24 and could get more goals in a better side, it’s all well and good saying we need 20goal season striker but how many strikers get that in this league, sign him.


7.) 18 May 2019 12:42:32
It’s just as difficult keeping a 20 goal a season striker as it is getting one in the first place.


8.) 18 May 2019 14:36:21
There will be this rubbish over and over again from the papers believe in Marco and Marcel they will deliver.


 

 

21 Apr 2019 15:44:38
Wow! Great all round performance, I'm absolutely beaming. The race for 7th is on! I did say United were there for the taking and that's exactly what the lads did. They went for it and got the 3 points. For me as long as the team is doing well I couldn't care who the manager is although others won't agree with that probably. More performances like this we want. Well done the team, proud evertonian moment.

Howie1878

1.) 21 Apr 2019 21:34:48
Great game mate.


 

 

20 Apr 2019 17:03:08
Well looking at the table after this afternoons results we are still in the mix. Only trouble is we ideally need a win tomorrow against Manchester United. They aren't in the best of form so it's probably a good time to be playing them. We can live in hope that the team will put in a good performance tomorrow and get Goodison rocking.

Howie1878

1.) 20 Apr 2019 18:02:31
Considering who the others have to play a point tomorrow will have us in a good position. A win against palace and Burnley and 2 draws would be there and there abouts.


2.) 20 Apr 2019 18:06:28
I am sure we can Howie mate, also very pleasing to hear Marco likes to give the young lads a chance in the first team, just what they need.


3.) 20 Apr 2019 21:23:01
Somehow I see us handing out a whooping tomorrow :-)

{Ed025's Note - i hope so nick, i will be in portugal myself mate cheering on the lads with a cool beer in hand..

{Ed025's Note - cheers GB..


5.) 21 Apr 2019 17:43:44
Blimey I was right lol.


 

 

15 Apr 2019 20:35:34
Even though we lost against Fulham results have gone quite favourable for us with the other teams dropping points. As I type this Watford are losing 0-1 against Arsenal so currently another potential favourable result. My worry (which has been mentioned) are the remaining fixtures against Manchester United and Spurs which are matches I would think we'd drop points. Obviously I'd like to be wrong with that assumption. All the other fixtures left are winnable in my mind. So we'd still need other results to go in our favour.

Howie1878

1.) 16 Apr 2019 21:33:51
So we are reliant on others now are we? Surely with more money spent and a superior squad, shouldn't the least be to finish 8th, as per last season.


2.) 17 Apr 2019 07:13:16
It's a little bit different this year BCT. Most of the teams around us (leicester, wolves and West ham) have spent a lot more than us this season. In fact, everyone above us except Tottenham have outspent us.

We can't simply expect to waltz into 7th and 8th anymore even after spending 80 million.
We have been outspent and will continue to be because our last 2 managers blew all our money on inadequate players.

Silva and Brands have to ship out the unwanted/ not good enough players and try and rebuild this squad. They can't do that in one season.

You're just going to have to accept that we are now in a fight for 7th to 10th with other teams that have as much if not more money than us.


 

 

08 Apr 2019 12:26:36
Well we are currently on a roll (finally) . After some poor performances/ games we've witnessed this season this is a very welcome change of fortune. The stand out game for me was the fantastic performance against West Ham. I'm over the moon with wins against Chelsea and Arsenal too. But if anything, for me this has highlighted how wasteful we are in front of goal. We should have definitely scored more, I'm not trying to be overly critical as we did enough in each game. DCL yesterday put in a great display and I think he will get better but we need more clinical attackers. Bernard needs to add goals to his game. He had a gift yesterday and still fluffed it. I'd go as far to say I even praised Walcott when he came on and that never happens. I would also like to echo the other posts about signing Gomes and Zouma permanently if possible.

Howie1878

1.) 08 Apr 2019 15:42:23
I thought we played well again yesterday and fully deserved a 3 or 4 goal win. On another day the players that missed those chances would take them all so no point in being too critical of them for missing. The whole team again played well and there were no passengers.


2.) 08 Apr 2019 18:10:52
Don't believe Bernard's was as easy as you think. Felt the keeper closed him down really quick and gave him little to aim at. Would rather focus on how he read what the defender was going to do to get himself in that position.
The goals will come as the confidence builds. And on a final note it's nice to have a manager who shows passion on the touch line. Long may it continue.


3.) 08 Apr 2019 19:23:38
Bernard should have taken the shot earlier but that is being overly critical as it wasn't an easy chance.
It is nice to see Silva celebrating with passion and I will be over the moon when we score in next season's derby and he does a lap of the pitch whilst cartwheeling around like a loon.


4.) 08 Apr 2019 20:41:04
Now that would make my day Smit mate.

{Ed025's Note - mine too..


5.) 08 Apr 2019 20:57:00
Moon walk past Klop would do for me, no half measures.


6.) 08 Apr 2019 21:08:33
I take it we all love Klopp lol.


7.) 09 Apr 2019 07:11:08
I don't think DCL missed many chances so talk of a more clinical striker is a little off the mark. The chances we created would have gone in on another day. What pleased me most was the clean sheet again and how we restricted them to very few chances but at the same time created loads ourselves. It is as Silva says. a confidence thing. On another day we could hav scored 5 or 6 against West Ham and 2 or 3 against Arsenal. But teams that do that are few and far between.

We are not suddenly going to sign Aguero or Sterling. So what we need is continual improvement. We have done that this season. We are creating chances and we are at last restricting our opponents to few chances. That gives us a platform to build from. We were like this in the 80's and signed Graeme Sharpe. He looked like DCL and most thought he would not be good enough. He was thought not clinical enough. How it turned out was somewhat different.


8.) 09 Apr 2019 19:21:49
To be fair Degsy DCL has come on leaps and bounds but has also missed some real sitters this season.
We need a striker who will score them, we aren't going to have it all our own way in every game.
We need to be more clinical and that is not just DCL.


9.) 09 Apr 2019 19:31:21
To be fair degsy, Sharps derby goal that not even the camera could keep up with lacked any sort of clinical technique. (There’s no better goal that I can remember in a royal blue jersey)


10.) 09 Apr 2019 21:12:09
I have to say I don't remember him missing too many sitters but maybe that's my blue brain in action?


11.) 10 Apr 2019 18:02:32
I did say clinical attackers and I wasn't singling any particular player out really (just the Bernard chance stuck in my head) although it seems everyone thinks I'm on DCL's case, I'm not. If I was to look to a player, it would have been Sigurdsson as he seemed to have the most wasted chances that I remember. As I said though we did enough to get the wins and the points on the board and I was very happy.

With regards to the final league position there's a lot of work still to be done. We have Man Utd and Spurs still left to play I think the chances of 7th are optimistic at best but I would love to be very wrong on that. The summer transfer window should be quite interesting with the ins and outs.

I saw this myself earlier. No thanks, he's been bloody awful for Huddersfield this season. Surely a better keeper is needed? I'd rather stick with Stekelenburg as back up or promote Virginia myself.

Well we'll have to wait and see if it is true. If he does sign for Spurs then good luck to him, they are a more attractive proposition than ourselves sadly in this moment of time. I would like us to sign him myself. On a positive note I have faith in Marcel Brands to get the right type of players in come the summer.

Ah it just wasn't meant to be.
I'm not bitter though and I'll be the first to say that Wolves fully deserve 7th place. They have had some really good results this season especially against the top 6 and unlike most newly promoted sides they've gone to places to win. Ultimately the banana skins against Fulham and Palace have cost us dearly towards the end. There's always next season so fingers crossed.

For me Zouma is more of a priority than Gomes but I would definitely like both if it's at all possible? I know we have Schneiderlin there also and he has filled in good enough and his performances are miles better. The but for me is that he isn't anywhere near as attack minded as Gomes is.

Theo Walcott definitely needs to be replaced, offers very little if anything to the team. We are fine when Richarlison plays there. Even the lesser spotted Ademola Lookman had a few minutes in the game last night as well. I've a feeling that he will want to leave to get game time as he's not getting much here, shame.

If Gana goes in the summer then he will be a massive loss to the team and I for one will be devastated. His work rate and attitude has been first class since we've signed him. He's not sulked, just got on with it.

Then there's DCL, I like the lad. He holds up the ball well, offloads it good enough and brings others into the game but his achilles heel is his poor finishing. I would also like to add his work rate is top notch and he runs his socks off. We need a goal scoring striker and unfortunately he is not the answer.
I know everyone we bring in will be a potential gamble but a striker has to be the top priority in the summer for me.

As for a RB it's in a good place. We still have Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny as his back up. Coleman came back from that horrible injury not playing the best in all honesty and a bit rusty. However I think his performances are good of late.
