Everton ready 'huge' third offer for Sigurdson. 'Player plus 45 Mill' is the rumour. If they are serious and a third offer would indicate they are, then why haven't they offered the 50 Mill, Swansea can then take it or leave it and we can all move on.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 17:40:42
I've heard the same, but that this is an agreed approach between the two clubs. fingers crossed this one gets over the line and then we can focus on bringing some speed to work alongside that quality.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 18:50:25
Ed any news of this.

{Ed025's Note - i know nothing about this rich mate..



28 Dec 2016 19:52:25
van dyke must be worth 60 mill after that start against spuds.


1.) 28 Dec 2016 20:25:35
Just gone down by 20 million, he lost out on a header by Ali who scored!

2.) 28 Dec 2016 21:23:59
yep noticed and was just about to post but you beat me to it. Funny how the commentators missed what was obvious to us.

3.) 29 Dec 2016 11:41:41
Well after that result surely we should get him on a free now. 😀.



03 Dec 2016 21:37:24
The scale of Koeman's job is becoming more and more apparent every week now. Catch22 without the players we cannot progress and we cannot progress unless we can attract the players and to attract the players we need to be at least top 6.

Ergo as much as we want things to happen in the January window, nobody of quality will come unless we:
A) Pay over the odds

B) Pay wages over the odds


1.) 03 Dec 2016 23:03:31
It does seem that is likely to be the case until we establish our credentials!

2.) 03 Dec 2016 23:25:27
Get the chequebook out farhad.

3.) 04 Dec 2016 18:40:38
Have to agree there is no quick fix to oour problems but let's see more youngsters given a go. Holgate was excellent today and Davies deserves a chance.



07 Jun 2016 06:43:36
Saints are worried that Koeman will come back and raid for their stars. Forster (is he better than what we have - Yes) , Van Dyke (in the long run he is no better than what we have) , Shane Long (about on a par with Naismith and better than Kone (although Koeman has worked with Kone before, we could be in for a surprise) ) .


1.) 07 Jun 2016 07:08:11
I am sorry but I think Long is much better than Naismith and as for Lone and the like it's time for them to go.

2.) 07 Jun 2016 07:15:03
I really like Virgil van Dijk and would be better than Scott Dann for me but I am sure I read that he only signed a new contract recently through until 2022 so would cost far too much.
And Fraser Forster signed a new contract around a similar time through to 2021, but I would look to stump up the cash for a top keeper so worth looking at.

3.) 07 Jun 2016 08:04:02
Can't see Forster coming. Like has been said, he just signed a long term contract. Plenty other keepers about, Cillisen, Mandanda or Leno. If reports are true, Southampton are trying to stop Koeman coming back for players put into the deal. If so it's a shame as I'd like us to try for Saido Mane and Ryan Bertrand.

4.) 07 Jun 2016 08:42:55
No matter what happens I quite like the idea that none of us have known for weeks maybe months what is actually happening I Like the Way Moshiri goes about conducting business. I hope this can only bode well for the future.

5.) 07 Jun 2016 11:36:33
For all we know, there could be a buy out figure, in Forster's contract, Koeman wouled know that, so let's hope.

6.) 07 Jun 2016 12:51:07
is that the same shane long that picked Reading over us a few seasons ago? I really dislike him think at the time he said he never wants to join us,

7.) 07 Jun 2016 18:25:09
Decent enough player I suppose, but he's always just had one of those faces I'd love to smack. Dunno why. Guess he doesn't care thiugh in his mansion and ferrari. Haha.



06 Jun 2016 20:54:02
I too believe the Koeman deal will go through and the compensation negotiations are normal for someone of Koeman's stature in the game. As to the being offered a £100 Mill budget, as my Son In Law says (an RS by the way) that is nothing special, all the Prem Clubs will have a budget of similar size. Unless of course the £100 Mill is additional to the TV income we will get.


{Ed025's Note - it will depend on what that £100m entails BCT, will it be that amount on direct transfers or will part of that go towards wages, agents fees and VAT etc?, i suppose we will have to wait and see but i think this moshiri is the real deal mate..

1.) 06 Jun 2016 21:19:02
Surely koeman would have asked those questions ed and liked the answers he got if its true that he is going to accept the job hope so.

{Ed025's Note - he and his advisors will have shogs, no one outside that room will know what was said but if he does sign on the dotted line then you would expect he was happy with the answers mate..

2.) 06 Jun 2016 21:24:01
Have no doubt whatsoever that he is the real deal. Certainly hit the ground running but there again you do not become a billionaire by being a mug.

{Ed025's Note - thats very true BCT...how did you make yours?.. :)

3.) 06 Jun 2016 21:37:51
cheers ed.

saved up my threepence a week pocket money till I was 15 and legged it ed25, didn't smoke but invested in woodbines every pay day selling half a ciggy at an exorbitant sum on tick to the smokers that ran out of cash.

This is the way I see the Sigurdson situation. Koeman sees him as a major part of his putting together a top 6 side. Is Sigurdson worth 50 mill? Put it this way, Man City wish to improve so they went after Walker, is he worth 50 mill, imo of course not, but in order to improve and get the man they wanted, they shelled out. If Everton are serious and wish to back Koeman in his judgement, well you can see where I am going with this.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 20:20:44
Can't argue with that reasoning Bill.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 21:30:20
50 million has nothing to do with Everton. We are so disrespectful sometimes. 50 million is the minimum Swansea will accept for a player who they think can keep them in the league which is worth in revenue closer to 150 million.
I don't even get why Koeman wants him. In a limited squad size in midfield we have Schniederlin, Gueye, Besic, McCarthy, Barry, Davies, Klassen, Rooney and as it stands Barkley. That's ridiculous for 3 positions max in the first XI.
I'd rather put that money and whatever was left for a striker in to buying the highest end no9 we can, even if that costs 70-80 mill. We can this season cover all other areas with youth and squad players. We don't have a 9. Give Arsenal 30 mill for Giroud and give the geezer the rest of the Sig money in wages.

3.) 14 Aug 2017 22:11:19
You could take Besic and McCarthy out of that team as they have hardly played any football for the past two years. It sounds like Barry will go this week and Barkley too. So after that Sig seems like a must.

We still need a striker, CB and winger after that but Sig is the one we are looking to unlock defenses and galvanise the forward area. Just like Swansea he could mean £150mil to us in the CL in his time at the club.

4.) 14 Aug 2017 23:23:14
Svenny. A striker worth that money won’t come to us. We’re not even in Europa proper yet. Sigurdsson is top quality, he has proven this over the years, and he wants in. If he joins and scores 10, along with Rooney 10 and 10 from Sandro we have already bettered Lukakus contribution. Might not happen I know, but not out of the question either. All that for a transfer outlay less than what we sold Lukaku for.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 07:47:23
I agree Toffee Ace. 10 each from them 3 will be the same as Lukaku and Barkley scored last season and with a tidy profit.



09 Aug 2017 07:29:31
These are actually worrying times for the Everton faithful, I have gone from optimistic to realist during this window. Yes we have signed many players to build the Squad, but have we actually strengthened. Defence bought a new Goalkeeper - probably better than what we have. A RB on a free - no better than what we have. Still awaiting a left sided defender. An excellent CB but lost one to injury. Midfield - built up, but we already had a good midfield in my view. Striker - Sandro - Not a Target man. Rooney for Lukaku - No. Plain to see from pre-season that Rooney is not a striker of quality anymore and is more like a No 10. My prediction based on all the incomings against the major outgoing is that we will finish 7th. Cups - I genuinely have no idea.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 07:50:40
Fair assessment. but we have more quality in depth imo. plus bolasie and Coleman still to come back AND further recruitment to come. hopefully a target man, a CB and maybe sigurdson.?

2.) 09 Aug 2017 09:03:44
negative post, Kenny coming through as a right back, like it or not rooney is excellent as a squad addition, the window is still 3 weeks from shutting judge the squad after this, everyone needs to stop panicking every team knows we have more money than usual because of lukaku, most deals i'd imagine now would be later in the windows due to this.



04 Aug 2017 22:04:33
Whats the holdup. The blokes Icelandic, can't be that difficult to convert to Scouse.




01 Aug 2017 17:06:54
Sorry but this latest offer will be turned down as well. It isn't and doesn't add up to their 50 mill valuation. It is the same offer as the second one but with the 'Loan' of a player valued at 5 mill, so 40 mill with 5 mill addons (already rejected) and we will lend you 5 mill.


1.) 01 Aug 2017 17:34:36
what latest offer I can't find anything about any new offer.

2.) 01 Aug 2017 17:58:33
That's the trouble Bluey mate just too mush rubbish spouted in the rags again, just looking for a sensational story let's leave it to the board, cheers mate GuernseyBlue.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 18:44:18
Sorry Bluey, quite right of course. I should have qualified that with 'if true'.

4.) 01 Aug 2017 22:34:48
ha ha I was really confused been at the in laws all day and my little girl killed my battery I got home checked the site and your post came up ha ha.



30 Jul 2017 12:18:13
Don't think they really want Siguurdson now. If they did why not just pay the £50 Mill. Instead if it is a true rumour what is the point of player plus cash offer. It has taken on the infantile game of one upmanship as far as I can see.

Don't know where you sit n the ground Gary but as wblue says every time he plays he doesn't put a foot wrong. I also said in my comment that 'if free from injury'.

Berkshireblue, entitled to your opinion mate. Besic if free from injury, is a superb player.

This is going to be and was always going to be the problem with bringing in virtually a whole new first Team in this Window. How do you meld them all together. Thankfully I am not the one being paid big bucks and can whinge and moan from the sidelines in the knowledge it is never going to be my responsibility.

Yep new signing for Friday, apparently the shop has been short staffed for ages.

Told you before lads. It is obvious that the initial signings were purchased on the strength of Lukaku's up and coming fee. There is no new money for signings as it has to be funnelled into the new stadium accounting column. Any new incomings now depend on cash flow, hence the reduction in Barkleys ask, in order to facilitate a quick income and the reason behind the renegotiation stance on Sigurdson.

Flattered to deceive, sorry to put a dampner on it. Loved the build up play but like quite a few other Clubs in our little league 7, 8,9,10ish, no end product per build up.

With more to come, I reckon as well. Left CB/ RB cover, a big target man and with Sigurdson that is the three that Koeman alluded to. So yes if that happens we will certainly be a much stronger side. One thing if the 45 mill is true, then once again either the Papers (probably) have been wildly wide of the mark or something more than the fee was holding the deal up. We will know by Thursday.
