SSN just reported we've had a bid turned down for Raul Jiminez at Benfica. Anyone seen much of him?

Would just like to say that with £60m already spent on two quality players, I'm in dreamland.

We've waited not years but decades to see this kind of activity and BK deserves a huge amount of credit for this. Not only has he kept us in the top league and solvent, but also made us attractive to someone like Moshiri.

The future's bright. The future's blue.

Just seen that Athletico's transfer ban has been upheld so may be some hope fur is getting Sandro?


1.) 02 Jun 2017 11:03:27
Looks like Utd want Lukaku 100mil plus 127 from the league let's hope we start spending soon.

2.) 03 Jun 2017 10:18:33
Think that's his only option really as he won't play regularly for Chelsea if he goes there. Just hope it's a straight cash deal from Utd for Lukaku rather than them trying to throw Rooney at us in a player plus cash deal.

3.) 03 Jun 2017 11:30:05
Sandro wants to go to Madrid and only has to wait another window. I can see him staying this summer and going there in January. Doubt very much we will see him in an Everton shirt.

4.) 03 Jun 2017 15:40:00
Cannot understand the Rooney part deal, sure he was offered on a free so why would we take Rooney and less cash, that one will not happen, throw in Martial and ££60 million and worth thinking about.



14 Mar 2017 17:55:15
Just seems Lukaku's turned down the contract. Hoping that means the terms he was offered rather than he won't sign one full stop.


1.) 14 Mar 2017 19:15:25
I think it"s the latter Windsorblue, that"s his perogative. if he goes he goes, would rather him stay like but that's football for you. Hopefully we get top dollar for him and then hope Walsh unearths a gem from somewhere.



05 Mar 2017 17:38:04
Didn't like the formation today. It looked like a 4-3-3 but for that you need two up top either side of Rom who will go wide and put balls across. Far too narrow for me and our midfield looked like they were on top of each other at times with no passing option in front on either side. Coleman and Baines can't be expected to cover the length of the pitch for 90 minutes and the Spurs centre halves are too good (Vertonghen's slip aside) to go through. Should have taken advantage of the fact the Spurs full backs bomb forward and try to get in behind to get balls across.

Anyone else think a cheeky loan punt for Fabregas would be worthwhile? Whether he would come is a different question, but he's not getting a look in at Chelsea so would live to see us at least make an enquiry.


1.) 25 Jan 2017 18:39:03
He will not leave Chelsea, every Club needs a strong Squad and Fabregas is playing a part in Chelsea's. Aren't we trying to build the same.

2.) 25 Jan 2017 18:42:34
That's not a bad shout Windsor mate. Actually surprised no other club has come in for him.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 19:02:27
Besic is nearly fit again so it's going to be interesting who Koeman plays in midfield without adding anymore midfielders.

4.) 25 Jan 2017 19:17:39
People saying Rooney shouldn't come bk because his age isn't cesc the same age

{Ed025's Note - rooney is 31 and cesc is 29 shakey..

5.) 25 Jan 2017 19:57:26
It's scary he is only 29. He seems like he has been around for ever

6.) 25 Jan 2017 21:00:40
He's a s*#@ stirring cheat if you ask me . Good player like.

7.) 25 Jan 2017 21:58:44
He's far more creative than Besic. Like I say I can't see him coming to us, but surely it's worth asking the question.

He's been wasted at Chelsea because he's hardly played of late, so would imagine he'd look at a starting place in the premier league, especially given that we're hugely on the up.

8.) 26 Jan 2017 09:59:11
We need a right winger a CB, LB and a GK before Cesc. There will also be yeams in the CLafter hi as well.

He's a good player but not at the top of his game and will be in decline. Our recent policy of buying young and in the ascendancy of their progress is a much better path to follow.

9.) 26 Jan 2017 10:39:03
I think that was supposed to say "teams in the CL after him as well".

10.) 26 Jan 2017 14:23:34
I agree we need this positions filling, but not necessarily ahead of a creative midfielder who can unlock teams that play very deep.

For me Robles deserves a run until the end of the season plus we look decent as we are playing three at the back which I think is a system Oviedo can do a job in if Baines is out.

My concern is that when we play teams who park the bus we don't seem to know how to break them down. Davies seems to bring the best out of Barkley and makes him more effective at breaking down stubborn defences, but the lad's still a teenager so can't possibly be expected to perform at this level in every game between now and May. Hope I'm wrong but would imagine he'll need a break before he breaks down, and Barkley doesn't look anywhere near as creative without him.

Also, if Barkley gets injured we have nothing creative in the side at all, whereas at least we have some options in the other positions you mention who could do a job for a game or two IMHO.

11.) 26 Jan 2017 15:02:52
I also meant to put striker on the list.

I don't see Cesc moving Ross out of his position. This means like Rooney he would need to sit in the bench.

Not sure Cesc or Rooney would move from one bench to another.

Not sure why someone disagreed with that Bobby. Seems pretty obvious to me!

Didn't Koeman make a comment after one of the recent games that if it isn't working then it's best for him just to go? His body language on the touch line doesn't show someone who's particularly bothered either way, which could explain why the players look the same.


{Ed025's Note - i think thats just his natural demeanor mate..

Good luck to him. Hope he gets game time there and is successful, albeit not against us.

No doubt Mr Moshiri called Jim White personally to tell him that. He's absolutely full of it.

PSG's revenue is huge, increasing significantly with shirt sales for Neymar and potentially Mbappe. Apparently shirts for the former are going at £150 and they sold over 10,000 within a couple of days of him signing.

I don't know our financials but can imagine that our income is a fraction of theirs, hence there is a limit as to what we can spend. Would imagine a massive chunk of our revenue goes on wages and transfer fees are funded by player sales and the TV money.

Good post that.

What I would say is that I thought Koeman was one of those managers before he came to us. He did a fantastic job with Southampton, particularly when they sold all their decent players every season.

I thought he'd treat coming to us as his next step and an audition for Barcelona, so I really do not understand where it's all gone wrong. Surely he must realise he's going to get sacked if it doesn't turn round, while at the same time realising it's not going to turn round if he doesn't do something different. It's almost like he wants to get sacked.

Thanks Ed, hugely informative.

Would be interesting to see what impact a FIFA ban on players from breakaway league teams playing for their countries would have. You'd like to think many players would chose country over club, but I think the reality is a lot would follow the money which would be even more ridiculous than it is already.

I guess with the majority of Europe's top clubs being owned by overseas groups / individuals / states, there is no loyalty to the country of a team's origin.

God only knows what Sky would cost per month if this happens.


{Ed002's Note - The players would not care, in the most cases, about their country.}

Sorry Ed, my maths escaped me for a minute.

Who would run that type of league? Presumably a new body would be set up?


{Ed002's Note - It would be a separate body just focused on that league and making money for those “elite” clubs involved.}

Similar has been happening for years in Spanish football with RM and Barcelona taking the majority of the TV money.

It's a tough situation because the 'big six' will be the attraction for the majority of overseas viewers (aside from ex-pats) , so logic dictates they are right to ask for a higher percentage. But if you give them a higher split to say 30% of total revenue between them, they'll push for an increase in the future unless they are contractually stopped from doing so. But then they'll break away anyway when they decide they want more money.

That said, we might win the league if they go.


{Ed002's Note - 30% is what they get if the money is evenly distributed. Those that breakaway will initially be limited and it is invitation only.}

Definitely worth a look then. He turned a group of bang average players into a decent team that got some good results. I guess you'd question whether he could do it full time with a club side full of players on millions a year though.
