In no way am I grumbling about the club, but honestly believe that, in the summer, we keep what we've got right now, sell our senior loans, if we could get a gk, maybe TWO youngish cb, a wide man and striker (and maybe a fullback either side as cover) we are almost there.

That's 7 players (in my opinion) to complete our squad and we are a serious threat again. So very proud to be a blue, really heading in the right direction. (Not getting the rubbish of my mates any more. Haha) Can't see how anyone at the moment can grumble about anything about our club at the minute. UP THE TOFFEES!

I think it's clear that we need at least one quality, relatively young centre back. We at least need cover for Baines, assuming that Holgate is our cover for Coleman and Galloway is going to be utilised properly as a centre back. Another wide man is a must, and we could do with one striker as we have Mirallas/ Lookman/ Calvert-Lewin as cover for Lukaku if necessary. 4 players seems more reasonable.

I'm probably going to be slated for this but I actually think that Joel could end up being a number one for us. He's only 26, so won't peak for another 5-7 years, and has been impressive every time he's been given an opportunity, save for a shaky first couple of games. He's been great the past month or so, and will only improve with more game time. Might save us £20-30m on a new keeper if we stick with him.


2.) 05 Feb 2017 09:38:38
There's certainly something there with Robles BT and you're right, he is young and will improve. What I like is the fact that it doesn't matter to Koeman whether it's his signing or a previous managers one, as in the case of Robles, if your playing well your in. Even if that is at the expense of one of his own signings.

This manager will do what it takes to win.


3.) 05 Feb 2017 23:53:29
Have to agree blue tommy, Robles may be a very good goalkeeper in the making let's decide at the end of the season.

Thought that has just occurred to me, are there any fees being mention for Gibson and Oviedo? Could possibly see Gibson am being a free (even though he's just signed a contract) but my guess would be Oviedo would conduct a fee wouldn't he?

Kingo78

1.) 30 Jan 2017 12:38:25
I've heard/ read that it would be 4m for Oviedo and 2m for Gibson.


2.) 30 Jan 2017 12:46:58
I read somewhere that it was £4m for Oviedo and £2m for Gibson how true I don't know


3.) 30 Jan 2017 14:13:41
I've heard we don't have to pay any fees to Sunderland :-)


4.) 30 Jan 2017 16:06:21
I know some will laugh at this. Imho if they both stay injury free they will do a job. £6m for 2 players nowadays is basically unheard of.


 

 

25 Jan 2017 19:59:14
I think we need a gk, at least 1 cb, lb, lw and striker for me to really compete. Obviously its a large list and can't see us getting people in for all those positions.
Any REALISTIC names bandied around in January for any of these. VDV won't happen ever for that money. Burnley won't sell Keane in Jan and I think the 25m I've heard is too much for him.
Any ideas or stick with what we got and wait until the summer?

Kingo78

{Ed025's Note - a lot will depend on how much we are willing to pay over the odds kingo, clubs know we have money and want players so they will be out to screw us big time, i just hope we dont panic like the late sissiko saga mate..


1.) 25 Jan 2017 20:48:20
Spot on Ed. Dodged a bullet there. No panic buys they have learned their lesson as RK only wants to add quality👍🏿👍🏿


2.) 25 Jan 2017 22:28:18
I would still like Gabbiadini in l, just to give us some attacking options. Other than that I'm happy with what we have.


 

 

31 Aug 2016 21:53:19
DnnyGabbidon just told my nan that Messi, Bale and Ronaldo are on there way to Goodison. He wouldn't lie, his 'mates' have already signed for us!

Kingo78

 

 

12 Aug 2016 21:35:29
RK normally likes to play the 5-3-2. Backs seem to be Coleman, Baines, Williams, the argie (always forget his name) and another. Up top could be Lukaku and Bony. Leaving three in midfield. My guess is Guna, Delefeou and who? Barry, Mccarthy, Mirallas, Berkley, Lennon, Coric? Who you reckon will be the third mid?

Kingo78

1.) 12 Aug 2016 22:17:47
Well it won't be Bony for starters as Koeman's already said he's not interested in signing him.


2.) 12 Aug 2016 23:32:08
Hope yous get him good footballer kone 16 games on £40000 now wants £70000 that's not the prob he wants a move so what, it's the way he's went about it, does not give a F about our clubs just another 1 who thinks he's bigger than the club any way lads good luck for the season.


3.) 13 Aug 2016 07:42:42
That's football Mr MackeM.


4.) 13 Aug 2016 12:39:18
Deulofeu and Mirallas are up front. Holgate, Mori and Jags are at the back. McCarthy and Baines are wingbacks. Playing 3-5-2.


5.) 13 Aug 2016 12:45:52
That's for today obviously. Haven't been told what the midfield is but I know Gueye starts.

Everyone seems to think we have a 'new Abramovich' but there was a recent post showing the 'rich list' of Premiership owners and we were about 14th. Even sunderland were richer than us. Chill out and let the professionals do their job, and we'll do ours cheering on the sidelines.

Kingo78

{Ed002's Note - It is of no matter how much money the owners themselves have, it is what and how they are looking to invest in the club - which is a different matter entirely.}


1.) 31 Jan 2017 17:38:31
But with FFP involved we can only go so far can't we? Can all this 'we have 200 million' be viable as, even though Moshiri has supposedly said this (I haven't heard this) and maybe can afford it, does it not go on percentages of income what we can actually spend?

{Ed002's Note - Generally yes.}


2.) 31 Jan 2017 17:47:12
Ed002, I'm genuinely not looking for a debate (due to my responses) but how do you mean genuinely? What are the ways around it as I feel everyone is waiting for an (unreasonabe) spending spree

{Ed002's Note - If a club wishes to declare new investrment and additional spending it can be notified to UEFA by December 31 of the year before it is planned to happen and UEFA will conduct a due diligence activity and approve the request or not. This is a temporary rule introduced that investment in "smaller" sides could be maintained.}


3.) 31 Jan 2017 18:24:46
Thanks Ed. Makes sense I guess. Let's the little man catch up with the big boys. Enjoy the rest of your evening spotting Riquelme and Yarmelenko at Lime Street waiting for a taxi.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks man.}


 

 

31 Jan 2017 17:24:39
Still some fans unhappy? What calibre of players do you think we should be signing? If you are saying players to push for a European place, then I agreed with you, but who exactly is available in January? Think we did remarkably well. getting Schneiderlin before an auction happened in the summer, but can you name another one or two?
Also, everyone seems to think we have a 'mew Abramovich'

Kingo78

1.) 31 Jan 2017 17:40:56
So your unhappy with how the club is progressing Kingo78?


2.) 31 Jan 2017 18:28:08
No. I'm over the moon. Finally an honest manager, back staff who know what they're doing, Rhino and others doing a terrific job outside the first team, an owner prepared to put his money where his mouth is. Can't grumble with any of that. Just get annoyed with some fans expecting a team of Messis etc 'because it's easy on Championship Manager or Fifa'


 

 

31 Jan 2017 12:22:03
Even though deadline is at 11pm tonight, I think, with matches on tonight, we'll have a big clue what's happening amongst English clubs at least, by 7pm. For example, will Keane be selected tonight? If so, I doubt he'll be staying put until the summer (I think he'll stay) . So get your detective hats on people. Think there'll be a few big shouts early on tonight.

Kingo78

1.) 31 Jan 2017 14:19:20
Everything incoming has been done now.


 

 

31 Jan 2017 10:58:27
Always used to love watching transfer deadline on sky sports. Less than half hour of Jim 'The Letch' White on the box and I've had to turn it over. His voice grates me, his ego is huge. Wouldn't surprise me if he tries to change the name to Jim White Deadline Day.

30 Jan 2017 20:42:39
I think we may be done now. Need another striker in my opinion, but our u23's are walking the league at the moment by a mile and Koeman says he'd be happy to promote from within until the summer. I trust him I think. He's getting rid of all our rubbish and sorting out our club well atm. Good times being a blue right now

Kingo78

1.) 31 Jan 2017 10:00:40
Mirallas would cover but as a coming onto the ball Striker the difference being Koeman has a plan A, B, C and any other you could think of.

Unfortunately this link was always going to creep back up providing Rom delivered. and he has. Let's hope he feels we are heading in the right direction for him, him to show some. loyalty and/ or we did the promise him anything stupid/ unrealistic in the summer gone for him to stay for another season ie. Champions League this season/ sign unrealistic players etc.

If he's back, that could be why Koeman gave in and sold Oviedo. at least until the summer.

Unfortunately for him, I think he's been away too long now for him to make an impression. He'll be another shipped on in the summer. Hoped big things for him originally

Surprised if we get more in. Had a sneaky feeling since this morning Keane was going to come in but he's playing tonight. Bit I've said for a while everything Koeman is saying goes seems to portray that he thinks our youth can cover any small (ish) injury

A 35 year old Costa Rican striker who has only reached double numbers twice in 20 years in crap leagues? Oh well, Sunderlands gain I guess. Haha

I'm not Robles biggest fan, rate him as an exceptional number 2, but even i can't say he's not doing the goods at the minute. Top marks!

I'd be happy with a Europa season. In my opinion, would highten our profile and attract bigger names. Let's be honest. Are we a champions league club right now. No. We need to take things step by step and after 2 11th place finishes, most fans would snap your arm off for a European season of any sorts.

I still feel he is a player with 'great potential' although the potential only lasts so long. Don't think he'll be given the time and effort he would have if he stayed with is. But, obviously, he's made his decision, is not an obvious choice to start now and we did 'pretty good' out of it. Holgate is our next project now and hopefully he sees what Stones did and learns from it.

Alas, look how much Stones may have learnt from Koeman had he had given us another year. Koeman being one of the greatest ever ball playing centre backs of our time. (Thanks for the business anyway John)
