Seeing links to another young Argentinian Adolfo Gaich who plays CF for the u20’s along with this Sosa
Wouldn’t this be another scenario we would have work permit issues with?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Yes, there would be WP issues. There are talks with two other European sides interested.}

1.) 08 Jun 2019 16:39:02
Those being the Italian sides? Hearing Genoa mentioned

I know Brands has had success in South American talent before I assume there wasn’t the same WP criteria for those?

{Ed002's Note - Genoa as you say ST and Eintracht Frankfurt.}

2.) 08 Jun 2019 21:17:04
Ed quick question, with the Dutch league are there not the same restrictions with signing players is it only over here we fall foul of these work permit rulings?
Puzzles me why we would keep looking at players, albeit for the future, who will fall foul of these WP rules.

{Ed002's Note - It varies depending on local rules. In the UK the HMG rules apply.}

3.) 09 Jun 2019 20:52:04
Sorry Ed2 if you answered this before but do you mean Her Majesty's Government rules or does HMG mean something else.

{Ed002's Note -

Yes, government.}

It’s crazy when the likes of Barcelona/ Real get young unknown players from South America at 14,15, 16 yrs old with no problem.
I’m also certain Man City have a young Argentine in the youth side/ U23 and no doubt Chelsea, Man U etc wil have a South American (will need to check) The only way the city player can be here is he was classed as a special talent which we can’t seem to get ours classed as.

{Ed001's Note - usually those players have passports for EU countries.}

5.) 10 Jun 2019 10:29:32
The process is very difficult to understand and even if the required points can be accumulated the application can still be turned down. Genuinely, after reading up on it, I can safely say I’m no better off for trying to understand it.

Kenny is interesting Schalke on a season long loan according to reports, could be a great move for game time to aid his development.

Southern Toffee

1.) 01 Jun 2019 18:29:32
Rather he stayed here as he should get games if Cioleman injured, another young English lad getting pushed out if true.



10 May 2019 07:51:00
Hi Eds keep seeing different articles stating we hold an interest in Giovani Lo Celso, is this a player we’ve looked at?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Giovani Lo Celso (CM) is a Plan B to AG but in reality he could be more expensive than him after REal Betis signed him and are looking to treble their money (in reality they might be able to double it).}

1.) 10 May 2019 10:20:42
Thanks Ed there was mention of them looking to moving him on quickly for more.

2.) 10 May 2019 12:29:51
Rumours circulating that Barcelona will accept Spurs bid for Gomes and he is going to accept their offer. i hope Lo Celso can be as good as Gomes if we are lucky enough to get him in, Gomes was a real asset this season.

{Ed002's Note - He would be very expensive.}

3.) 10 May 2019 14:04:38
Quick question on these type of situations Ed, I take it they cannot actually sign him until the window opens so can the selling club actually sell him elsewhere themselves?
I would be miffed if it happened to my team but I think something similar happened with Southampton a few seasons back with Toby Alderweireld who was on loan but then ended up going to Spurs
Or was that a completely different scenario?

{Ed002's Note - No, they can sign him any time they wish as he is registered to them and they have an option to purchase. So Real Betis informed PSG last November of their plan to buy him outright, and the did so in early April although PSG did try and persuade the player not to sign because they could get more elsewhere - and PSG need commited sales of €60M gross by June 30.

It was a different situation with Toby Alderweireld where Southampton accepted a payment not to take up their option (and the player being happy to move to Spurs)}

4.) 10 May 2019 15:22:26
Thanks Ed great info.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



06 May 2019 23:31:06
I see reports linking us to Leandro Trossard who is yet another left winger! 🤦🏻‍♂️.

Southern Toffee

1.) 07 May 2019 11:07:59
If Richarlison stays on the right and Lookman toodles off then we only have Bernard on the left. Walcott better on the right (well better is not the right word) but he plays on the right.

cant see Bolasie or Mirallas playing.
Onyekuru is up in the air but can play across the 3.



29 Apr 2019 22:27:14
Hi Ed's, it may just be the start of the silly season early but is there a rumblings about interest in Lucas Ocampos as reported in some media, I have no idea how reliable the likes of calciomercato is in terms of rumours especially as they are Italian reporting on Everton interest in a French based player!
From what I see though he sounds versatile playing across the front 3 and can also play with both feet so could be the sort of young talent we would look at
Any whispers? 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Marseille have offered Lucas Ocampos a new contract and there has been no approach to l'OM from Everton. His agent offered him to another English side in December without the permission of the player or his club and was duly castigated by Zubzaretta. And what would Everton do with yet another LW?}

1.) 30 Apr 2019 12:42:46
Thanks Ed I did think it seemed a little strange but then also read he can play across the front three, guess the silly season in the media is ramping up for the summer.

{Ed002's Note - He is a LW. In theory he can also play in goal, but any club looking to buy him would want him as a LW.}

Just reading an article about West Ham switching focus to Shelvey or Hayden at Newcastle
Imbedded in the article was a video of Gomes doing a hug a thon over 200 hugs to raise money as part of the EITC initiative, I must be getting old as these bring a tear of such pride into the good players can do

Big shout out to the players and the little bits of joy they can bring to people in the community.

I know it’s a big if but if we get the likes of Welbeck in and keep him fit that would be a great upgrade on Tosun and Niasse
Lossl will be great as backup and should also trim the wage bill
And it Strootman came in I think that would add another dimension to the midfield
If we then managed to get say Gomes and another striker we could look to loan DCL and Tom Davies out to gain more first team football experience
But I can only speculate and we will have to see what Marco and Marcel do.

Southern Toffee

1.) 24 May 2019 23:34:13
DCL shouldn’t be going anywhere. Deserves another season with the first team, even if it’s coming on as sub in the last 15mins. His pace still rattles defences, and he will get better.

2.) 25 May 2019 19:09:54
Red in peace! I don’t get the wellbeck link surely you’d be better just giving Calvert-Lewin more game time? I understand that he’s free but he’s never been great. Never know might work out okay the lad works hard ill give him that.

3.) 25 May 2019 22:03:50
Welbeck has scored 42 goals on premier league since 2007 - that’s average of 3.5 goals a season. Not once has he got double fingers and only 3 times scored more than 5 (I really don’t see how he is an upgrade on anything we have)

4.) 26 May 2019 10:54:36
Stats tell lies when fit he is quality, I would like Mitrovic and Wellbeck and also DLC maybe a team needs at least 3 centre forwards.

5.) 26 May 2019 22:48:51
3.5 goals a season. That's more than Niasse and Tosun collectively.
Wellbeck like DCL offers a bit more as well as goals.

6.) 27 May 2019 17:42:29
I’m pretty sure he got a few double fingers when he left united for arsenal 😂.



15 Aug 2018 15:12:33
Nice interview with Brands talking about the transfers and deadline day and the challenges faced how Yerry wanted to come but other clubs made offers but we persevered with the original offer on the table
Also talked about the support from the chairman with everything going on, so another thank you to Mr Kenwright.
And was gracious in thanking the team around him like legal and the support staff who headed to Barcelona, I think we lose sight at times of all the others involved

So thank you all for delivering a great window and renewing our optimism in the season ahead.

Over to you Mr Silva and the team! COYB!

Nice postman.

{Ed002's Note - Cute buns?}

2.) 15 Aug 2018 17:01:56
Our postman is really ugly,
Scares the heck out of our dog.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 09:12:30
Nice to see that Brands will be no pushover over with transfers. Although I expect the "just get it done, why do we always take so long over transfers" brigade probably won't be too happy.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 09:32:06
Different kettle of fish our management Team now eh mategood post.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 13:13:42
Just goes to show. Papers write crap to sell newspapers and know almost nothing. Brands is obviously a knowledgeable football man.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 18:14:50
He is the real deal, and I believe Moshri wanted him right at the begining.

7.) 16 Aug 2018 18:16:19
I totally agree but with every appointment and signing it’s only judged on results.



15 Aug 2018 01:31:40
There’s a lot of talk of Usmanov and it’s going to be spun all the time by the journos about investing in Everton which would be great. But why don’t we focus on the team if anything happens there with Usmanov then great but I think we are in an amazing position in our transition right now so let’s not let the Usmanov situation distract.

Hi Eds I have a question which I am wondering if you could shed some light on
So the window has slammed shut, well. we kept it slightly open to get Big Kurt over the line
Now there is all this talk of players going out on loans to championship clubs so my question is are these purely loans or can they also be loans to buy or similar?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Simple loans. If there is any separate agreement to habe a formal option to buy that has to be notified on the TMS - but a separate gentleman's agreement can exist.}

1.) 12 Aug 2018 20:20:17
Excuse my ignorance but what’s TMS?

{Ed002's Note - It is FIFA’s Transfer Matching System that contains all details of transfers.}

I agree Vlasic could offer something and is versatile but according to reports Vlasic is the one pushing for a move.
We will have to see what magic Brands does over the coming weeks.

Bolasie is supposedly interesting tranzonspor Besiktas and Galatasaray
Besiktas along with CSKA are also supposedly interested in Vlasic
Besiktas also showed interest in Tosun but he’s had a knock since then
Whether any of these pan out or hold weight is yet to be seen could just be journos trying to push news and click bait.

I think these Moise Kean links/ rumours are a little bit of wishful thinking as well.

Correct there will be no return on investment on those 4 mentioned but that’s not really what’s important here
Bolasie is reportedly costing £75k per week so that’s just shy of £4m a season 😬
Mirralas was £70k so he’s a bit over £3.5m per season
Sandro is £3.3m per year
Tosun £3.1m
Niasse £2.8m
Martina £1.8m
Besic £1.5m
Garbutt £1.5m
Vlasic £1.3m (might squeeze out a profit)
Galloway £1.2m
That’s £24m of salaries on players nowhere near the first team apart from Tosun but it seems he’s not fancied by Silva
It’s not ideal but I would take losses on these to move the recruitment forward and Brands plan does seem to be younger talent that would have a resale value.

I thought there was some interest out in Turkey or round that way where he had played in the past.

Seems Richarlison is doing his own bit for the recruitment drive while on duty with Brazil he’s quoted in an article saying he’s been trying to persuade Neres to join him at Everton 😉.

Totally agree TA i think Pickford has that belief he has a penalty save in him and takes a good one as well 😉
Unfortunately Stones still has that potential for a costly error in him 🤦🏻‍♂️.

I didn’t know that he had a foul language issue either maybe they are worried about the cards for foul dissent 😬.
