Look an confirmed. 4.5 year deal.

31 days to recruit. Hopefully a lot of prep has already been done and we won't have to wait until the last day to get deals over the line. Everyone has an opinion on where we need to strengthen but for me the priority has to be an attacking midfielder who has a bit of craft.

We need someone who can see a pass (forward) and not be tempted to turn around and pass backward. Someone who can weigh in with a few goals, who can strike from distance, a player who just wants to score or be part of a goal scoring move.

We have a 25 goal a season striker, but after that there is no one who can get near to double figures. This is sub standard for any team with European aspirations.

So I would be really happy with any new signings that can share the burden of goal scoring with Lukaku or any player that can make us more relentless in an attacking threat.

Hopefully over the next month we will see what Koeman, with the help of our DOF can achieve to make us a team that shows more going forward. Whilst of course not neglecting the back.

{Ed002's Note - Lookman will be a good addition TA. There is a CB potentially on the cards as I have mentioned and an enquiry has been made recently about Nicolas Pepe (which implies a Gerard Deulofeu departure) but there is much interest in Pepe with Lyon and Newcastle both looking for a January deal.}


1.) 01 Jan 2017 17:42:22
This is what annoys me everyone saying we need a better creative midfielder barkley is that player but unfortunately every time he breaks forward he only has lukaku to pass to. Gerrard is right when he says our own fans our ruining barkley.


2.) 01 Jan 2017 17:54:40
Thing is willy. Moyes didn't trust him, Martinez wasn't honest with him and Koeman is frustrated with him. So exactly what is it that these 3 managers failed to see that you see?

And if indeed he turns out to be the player you and Gerrard say he will be then brilliant. We have one homegrown number 10 and another for competition. Win win. Not so annoying now is it.


3.) 01 Jan 2017 18:04:47
Cheers for the info Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


4.) 01 Jan 2017 18:27:58
Toffee Ace I see where your coming from.

The thing for me is no wonder Barkley comes across as confused. Just read your 3 line summary of the managers he played under. And he's still only 23!

Enough to make anyone think twice about what they are doing and how to do it.


5.) 01 Jan 2017 18:28:17
Are we in for Memphis Depay?


6.) 01 Jan 2017 20:43:59
Toffee ace I think the 3 manages u mentioned have failed to see that there is no one to support rossi barkley.


7.) 01 Jan 2017 21:04:31
Very possibly Shakey. So would you support him with a creative midfielder and play Ross just behind Lukaku? I still think we need one.


8.) 02 Jan 2017 13:40:32
There is a great will here wanting Barclay to succeed because he is local but let's face it he has allways flattered to deceive time to get rid I feel.


9.) 02 Jan 2017 21:01:15
The main issue with Barkley is he is consistently played out of position. He is not and never will be a "No 10" he needs to be dropped deeper into midfield and creative players ahead of him for him to flourish. That's what all 3 managers have failed to do.


10.) 02 Jan 2017 23:51:42
Ross has got ability but no brain! He's too slow to recognise a pass. He simply does think quick enough for the prem.

Jimmy Mac in talks with Sunderland and also palace and West Brom. According to SSN.

1.) 31 Aug 2016 18:14:07
Pos jimy and gibbo goin. if only sissoko comes in that'll leave us a bit short. hope there's moreally than 1 centre mid coming. Still optimistic.


2.) 31 Aug 2016 19:02:19
McCarthy won't go anywhere unless we get someone else in for cover.


3.) 31 Aug 2016 19:31:11
And don't make it up. Everton in talks per SSN. Not Jimmy Mc
Big difference.

NSNO reporting that Brahimi is on his way. Quite a reliable site so fingers crossed.

1.) 31 Aug 2016 17:04:32
Really hope so and a few others.


2.) 31 Aug 2016 17:10:56
That report's a day old at least Toffee Ace. Just another site making guesses.


3.) 31 Aug 2016 17:20:09
Sorry, there is an updated report saying the same thing. let's wait. and hope.


4.) 31 Aug 2016 17:35:37
I'll take anything right now Brian I'm getting a bit nervous 😩.


 

 

31 Aug 2016 16:56:29
Jack Wiltshire is on his way to Bournemouth. Thank goodness because I'm fed up with hearing about this pointless transfer. Maybe now SSN will focus on some transfer news and shake off their arsenal obsession.

No Sighurdsson in the Swansea new kit Photos. Oooooooh.

Toffee ace

1.) 19 Jun 2017 18:46:47
Wouldn't worry about it. Barkley's in ours and likely to be off soon.


2.) 19 Jun 2017 19:50:02
Pretty sure ross was in ours? Wouldn't take this as a guarantee either way.


 

 

18 Jun 2017 22:38:03
I am feeling pretty confident about our targets this Summer. I know we missed a few last summer but to be fair I think we went in a little high, whereas this year we are more realistic. The players we are targeting are players who will come to us and not whinge about champions league. I suppose if you want top players you have to earn the right by getting champions league.

But in saying that the players we are looking at will definitely improve us. And with what we have already signed and what want to sign we have a real chance next season of being competitive. I can genuinely see us getting Sigurdssen and Keane. Then another striker if Rom gets his way.

Well done to the club, especially if you can get the fans excited even though you have let your star striker leave. I take my hat off to the recruitment team.

1.) 19 Jun 2017 10:45:52
Great post Toffee Ace.

I won't pretend to know much about the players we are targeting outside of the Prem, but there certainly seems to be an air of confidence in the club where they are concerned. Really looking forward to the start of the season!

Sigurddson (spelling? ) would be a major signing for me, just imagine the midfield with him in it. Mouth watering.


2.) 19 Jun 2017 10:59:47
I think we're following the model of buying young highly rated players and hoping they turn into champions league players, very similar to the Spurs model, which worked well for them. I'm very happy with what's happening at the moment, such a refreshing change.


3.) 19 Jun 2017 14:40:17
It's also quite similar to what Atletico Madrid do.


4.) 19 Jun 2017 16:32:54
Well if we emulate the success of Spurs or atletico CToffee then I'm more than happy!


5.) 20 Jun 2017 13:24:36
Totally agree gibbo.

If the fixtures a randomly generated then how come both Merseyside and Manchester derbys land on the same weekend? TWICE?

Toffee ace

1.) 14 Jun 2017 14:40:05
They are not all randomly generated. They have to take into account all kinds of events not just football fixtures so many of them are placed at certain times and dates.

The club's get a draft in before Xmas the previous year then another around march were they then reply back with specific requests. The main priorities are political conferences, City events, policing, weather and effects of potential other games.

A minefield!

The new shirt I have to say is typical of a failing sports brand like Umbro. It lacks imagination and style and looks dated. The Dixie silhouette is good but wasn't Umbros idea.

As long as we are affiliated to Umbro this should be our expectations. Sad but true. If we are to gets better kit then we need to affiliated with a better brand. They are out there and as long as we keep improving our desirability to these brands we should soon see an improvement there.

We can't and hopefully won't continue with this little old us approach that we have had over the years when it come to marketing our club. The signs seem to be there that all is now changing. And our profile and stock is rising.

I would like to see this contract run its cours or even cut short if possible and also tell Kit Bag where to go too. It's just absolutely wrong that you can't walk into a sports retailer in this country and pick up an Everton shirt to buy.

On a positive note, I'm pretty sure the away kit and 3rd kit should be better than this by default alone.

Toffee ace

1.) 17 May 2017 14:35:08
while I agree regarding our shocking deal with kitbag I have to disagree regarding our home kit I actually like it and think it's different to our normal plain royal blue jersey ( let's face it can't really do all that much with our home shirt) I can't wait to buy my 1 week old son his first new kit.


2.) 17 May 2017 15:05:17
I don't think it's that bad either. The way people are talking you'd have thought we'd be stepping out in pink shirts with purple polka dots in some kind of lacy material next season.

On the umbro matter, that was a pre moshiri era deal. I'd say when the deal expires we maybe looking at one of the big manufacturers again like Nike, I'd love adidas or even underarmour.


3.) 17 May 2017 15:45:48
Kit is down to personal taste, I think the majority would agree about the Kitbag stitch up though.


4.) 17 May 2017 16:18:23
I really don't want to go back to Nike it was down to them that we changed our badge as they said it was too difficult to copy we then wanted blue socks they refused and they did nothing for infants my little girl had the 6+ when she was 2 because Nike refused to make infant kits.


5.) 17 May 2017 16:44:26
I like it as well, I think kits are going back to before they tried everything there have been some horrible kits during the 90s.

I remember Mark Crossley being interviewed about when he signed a contract extension at Forest. Cloughie called him into his office and said that they decided to offer a contract extension to him so he needs to sign. Crossley looked at the contract and saw that nothing had been filled in on it. So he said to Cloughie it needs to be filled in first. To which Cloughie said No young man you just sign at the bottom and I will fill in the rest when I have decided exactly what you're worth.

Brilliant.

So when RK tells Ross he has one week to sign or be sold just remember that like Cloughie, our clubs manager will not be messed about. Just be glad you have the terms in place and the opportunity to serve this fine club for another 5 years or so.

COYB.

{Ed002's Note - Yet again he is washing the laundry in public - it is completely unprofessional.}


1.) 12 May 2017 13:35:02
private conversations have obviously came to nothing so maybe rk thinks public discussion may force ross into a decision one way or the other.


2.) 12 May 2017 15:59:29
I have to agree with you ed002 on this one I wish RK wouldn't do these type of things.


3.) 12 May 2017 17:35:53
Still disagree with ed002 on this matter. The contract has been ready for some time now and RB is no nearer to signing it, the longer it goes on then the likelihood is that it won't be signed. If he won't sign it then the club need to find a replacement, on top of whatever else we need, and this needs to be done as early as possible. With only a year left on his current deal the lad needs to let the club and the fans know what his intentions are. Obviously RK does not want to lose him for free so he is only being honest with the ultimatum.


4.) 12 May 2017 18:07:50
It is no different to the other managers. Mourhino on Rooney and depay, puel on VVD, conte on Costa, pulis on berahino. These guys are asked in every interview about the same question and most just answer honestly. RK admits he doesn't get too involved in negotiations but knows enough to say, if he doesn't sign we will have to sell. I don't see it as unprofessional, just pointing out the obvious.

{Ed002's Note - You are scratching around trying to justify an unprofessional manager - it is a little embarrassing.}

I wouldn't be surprised if Malaga are delaying hoping that someone else comes into play so as to start a bidding war. They aren't happy with his termination clause and may see this tactic as a way to get more money from the deal.

No one will pay 100 million for him, so he may end up staying if the club are going to stick to their guns on it. If we don't need to sell then there's no panic. It does seem though that we are on the look out for replacements as a precaution of course.

I think that one is wishful thinking sadly. Just can't see Celtic selling him after one very successful season. And even if they were it would be an astronomical figure for a striker untested at the level his fee would command.

If that's true then I'm impressed. Ditched us once for Milan which is understandable really. But to show hesitation a second time. Then good decision by Koeman.

Agree NBTB. This is the best window I can remember at this stage. The mad thing is that I still have the feeling that we've only just started. Plus it's always a little bit more exciting when you're signing attaching players.

Cleverly signed for Watford, permanently. I think we had a few dollar for him too which is good as we had him on a free.

Sorry eddy but it sounds a bit sentimental with Lookman. The decision to come and I'd imagine enjoy a hike in salary was entirely his. If he gets chances then he must take them. If he doesn't take them then someone else will. But I just want us to win every game and therefore want the best players at the club and the best 11 of those to start.
