Hi Eds seeing reports we are signing young Croatian Nikola Vlasic for around £8m.

Southern Toffee

Seems to be edging close to signing, got to say. didn't see that one coming!

2.) 29 Aug 2017 08:52:50
Some Croatian chap came on here yesterday morning saying this was going to happen, hats off to that man.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 09:23:56
He was Koppite too Gibbo, a knowledgeable Koppite is a rarity.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 10:31:36
wasnt a problem really i heard it from our mutual friend day after match in liverpool that everton were impressed you got yourself damn good player he will surprise you all.

{Ed002's Note - A whole host of clubs including Arsenal, Inter, Spurs and Chelsea have been looking at Hajduk Split's Nikola Vlasic for mopre than a year. He is well thought of.}

The lad had been talked up before the games involving us. He has fantastic reputation - was being compared Modric in the press. Another one for the future no doubt, but let's hope he can make an impact this season too. Would love to see us throw our hat into the ring for Sanches at Bayern - he'd really get the Gladys St rocking. Still looking light at the back too.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 10:49:03
yes you're right Murf a guy named Mandzo, I think I will be watching for more of his posts.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 11:12:11
Thanks Mandzo, appreciated mate.

8.) 29 Aug 2017 12:28:27
A whole host of clubs where looking at Niasse including Mourinho - Chelsea. Two sides and perspectives to every story!

9.) 29 Aug 2017 12:44:39
Yep I spotted his post and then later he had been harshly voted down. whilst all the news outlets started backing him up ;)

10.) 29 Aug 2017 15:37:05
Saw it as well, big thumbs up to Manzdo.

11.) 29 Aug 2017 16:32:28
Must have missed that, stuck down in deepest darkest Devon on hols with the family so not getting online as much ☹️.

12.) 29 Aug 2017 16:36:32
Good info Mandzo, much appreciated.

Hearing lots of murmurs about Welbeck as another target, well I do feel Welbeck could be an amazing signing played through the middle and my only concern would be fitness! Can't question his hunger and desire and I feel he would bust a gut with a potential England slot as a carrot dangling before him!

Southern Toffee

1.) 17 Aug 2017 18:29:14
Welbeck is a top athlete. Has been injured a lot, but much of this has been because he's thrown himself into games when fit. You never know how well the right kind of player will do with the right kind of players around to provide. I think Welbeck would be great in our current setup.



14 Aug 2017 17:39:58
Anyone heard about Barkley going down injured? Seen a report in a london rag down here that states he went down in pain and had to be helped off the training pitch clutching his leg.

But not seen anything on Sky Sports, anyone know anything?

Southern Toffee

{Ed025's Note - i have heard nothing ST..

1.) 14 Aug 2017 18:12:17
Hamstring according to reports.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 19:41:15
Thanks thought it may have just been the london rags stirring the pot!

3.) 14 Aug 2017 20:41:52
Red Echo now reporting Barkley suffered a hamstring injury in training today, then again they're also reporting Coutinho has a bad back.



12 Aug 2017 22:28:43
Seeing a link to Noah Fadiga at Club Brugge as the lad is only 17 is this another for the U23's?

Paul Clement states Gylfi Sigurdsson will not be in the squad this weekend.

Southern Toffee

1.) 10 Aug 2017 14:41:31
He also said that its not down to one side causing a problem, but both sides needing to compromise.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 18:01:43
Good to see that. Its unusual but nice to be reassured by the manager you want a player from :)

I was thinking over this Barkley situation and perhaps in Jan he decides to move or perhaps we keep him until the summer, he's playing with fire a bit if he has international aspirations as this is a World Cup year and he will need to be playing to break into that squad, like a lot have pointed out next summer he will be 24 so can leave on a free and no compensation due but if he's not played and doesn't go to the World Cup then he will be 28 when then next one comes round! And if he has to wait until then he may as well just hang up those international boots now which would be a shame.
The lad really needs someone to sit down and have a word with him, Pienaar would be good as he found out the hard way!
Personally I feel this was no longer a footballing decision and purely financial!

Southern Toffee

1.) 04 Sep 2017 09:32:07
If its Financial Southern Toffee he is stupid going to Spurs as they have a salary cap there and players like Alderweireld have already stated unless they get new terms they will look to leave (his agents words) so will Ross get better terms than those Everton allegedly offered? I doubt he will as that will put him on par with Kane and Lloris and therefore open the floodgates for other players to demand similar. The question he needs to ask himself is 'were will I get game time? ' Everton? Probably not a starter, Spurs? Definitely not a starter, Chelsea? Definitely not a starter, that leaves what?
He needs to hope Arsenal come in for him because he would probably get a game there as Carzola is out injured, Sanchez and Ozil are probably both off and Jack Wheelchair is always injured.
My take is our physio rang him and told him with Gibson and Oviedo already gone he was bored so needed company haha.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 14:35:18
It has been widely reported that Ross Barkley was offered a new contract by Everton, but declined to sign.
Whether the offer was a genuine attempt to keep a player that RK actually rates is a moot point in my opinion.
It might have just been a ploy to eventually get a bigger transfer fee because although he’d still leave he'd have longer remaining on his contract.
However, looking at the fees being paid for players in similar situations (e. g. Oxlade-Chamberlain and, indeed, Chelsea’s offer for Barkley) this is no longer such a problem in the current world of mind-boggling transfer fees.
I'm not “in the know”, but I wonder (not that it's really any of my business - even as a fan) about several aspects of this story;
Does the player have issues with RK (and vice versa! ) that mean the player wants/ needs to work under a different coach/ manager;
Does the player have personal issues living on Merseyside and needs to get away;
Does the player feel “down the pecking order” following the signing of other players and doesn't see the opportunity to play enough at Everton to get into England’s World Cup squad;
Does he (or more likely his agent! ) want more money than is being offered at Everton;
Does he simply feel at an age (he’ll be 24 in December) where he needs a fresh challenge elsewhere?
There are many opinions being bandied about, but surely only the player (I would hope! ) and his agent (more likely! ) know what's at the root of all this.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 16:00:48
Get rid and get over it. The lad is a div but he clearly knows what he wants. He wants Spurs. Why the hell should he sign for another club? I actually respect him for walking from Chelsea and stating the club are trying to force that move on him. As a club we probably could have handled the "kidology" Koeman tried a little better? The club have dropped the ball on this one.

Ross wants a move, he is clearly prepared to stay in an uncomfortable situation as he knows what he wants. (The opposite of the impression the fans have) Fair play to him. He wants the right move regardless of "world cup year" not that he is anywhere near the England squad at the moment.
If he goes and sits on the bench, why should you care? The same "voices" that were going nuts about the Sigurdsson money, are the ones going mental that the Barkley fee is going to be tiny now. Moon on a stick.

4.) 04 Sep 2017 17:16:28
I reckon he will be off to Chelsea in January. He is injured until then so imagine he was sent back and let us pay his wages until then.



31 Aug 2017 22:37:44
I know we all wanted loads of deadline day signings but come on guys we've had an awesome window lots of improvement, let's get behind our team we have some amazing talent and it's time for them to shine!

Southern Toffee

1.) 31 Aug 2017 23:19:15
ST I didn't want loads I just wanted one, a goalscorer that apart, we have had a fantastic window and like Moshiri said we just have to be patient while the team gels and as long as we can stay in touch with the top 6 until January then I can see us being more attractive to the better quality strikers although e may have to pay over the odds to get them in Jan.
we have got what we have got now no point in dwelling on it let's get behind the team starting with Spuds.



28 Aug 2017 23:57:52
Kieran Tierney would be the perfect successor for Baines and can cover other positions as well. if only we could get him. are you listening Mr Koeman and Mr Walsh.

Southern Toffee

1.) 29 Aug 2017 09:49:40
Not going to happen they let walker go because they have him.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 10:36:45
I think you may have a Tierney and Trippier confused there Trueblue, Tierney is at Celtic, bit of a dream to get him but here's hoping.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 11:51:06
Sorry Ed, my mistake these posts are coming thick and fast, struggling to keep up especially when some of them are stupid.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 19:42:57
What are you calling stupid? The post or that you didn't read it correctly? 😳.



24 Aug 2017 16:28:56
There seems to be numerous reports around about us bidding for this Emre Mor character, were we interested in him and are we still? Perhaps for more speed and trickery while Bolasie is out and more depth?

Southern Toffee



21 Aug 2017 18:05:20
Hi Eds is there any truth that we are one of 6 clubs interested in Perez at Arsenal? I know we were interested last summer.
Or is it just papers linking us with any striker on the market?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the papers are saying. I know of general interest being shown by Galatasaray, Bayer Leverkusen and Newcastle but it has always been Deportivo who would likely get the player done having tentatively agreed a loan to buy deal that sees Arsenal make a loss. Newcastle discussed a sale but backed down over money.}

1.) 21 Aug 2017 19:17:11
Ok thanks Ed.

Would allow Ramirez time to find his feet and ease the pressure, that's if we can pull it off, Jan isn't the best time to be buying 🤦🏻‍♂️.

Spurs just show they are not as big as they think. For ages I was hoping Barkley stayed now I am changing my mind. If he goes to Spurs then so be it Pochetino will probably get snapped up by someone else soon Dele Ali will likely leave, and all will be a big Barkley mess.

Spurs have come in and bid for Llorente so things could start getting busy now as that will bring Chelsea back n if they are really interested and could open the door for Michy.

To be fair there has been wholesale changes in personnel but then Koeman should be able to manage that and have then starting to gel by now. I just don't think he has worked out what works best.
What does strike me strange at times is the way he handles the press and how he seems to alienate players. I don't think the Barkley situation was handled well by Koeman ever since he joined and the reports on Lookman are of concern.
If things don't improve rapidly I hope Holland step in for him and we entice Ancelloti but then I am always a dreamer!

{Ed025's Note - we are all dreamers ST, but i dont think any of us envisaged this nightmare mate..

I've tried to keep quiet and give Koeman a chance as I did feel he was a good appointment when we brought him in. Alas I feel I have been wrong as it appears we are becoming ineffective on the pitch, this coupled with the public berating of players is becoming hard to stomach!
The question of who would be the right replacement could be debated into the new year, who could we get? Could someone like Carlo Ancelotti be tempted?

He is back training though, saw an article the other week that he was back training and Koeman mentioned it in a press conference, what level of training I don't know but it's positive.

Great info BobbyC are there limits to the number of players that can be on these lists A and B? Is list A limited to 25 like the Premier League?
