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.

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..

van dyke must be worth 60 mill after that start against spuds.

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. 😀.

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

billscrocodiletears

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) ) .

billscrocodiletears

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.

billscrocodiletears

{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.


4.) 07 Jun 2016 09:28:32
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.

Alardyce said Siguurdson and Rooney could not play together. So who is in the side tonight. Stuff it give me another drink.

billscrocodiletears

{Ed025's Note - pour me a large one BCT, i might just need it tonight mate..


 

 

02 Oct 2017 23:59:29
Here is a truth. I am an old man now and even in my prime would say an average player. Never the less I played combined services Hong Kong and in Cýprus limassol (as it was then) . Currently on hols to see that we only drew with a side I as a crap player played for is quite frankly appalling. This is Koemans side / squad. He has to go.

billscrocodiletears

{Ed033's Note - It would obviously help if Everton could attract and sign a world class striker in January.


1.) 03 Oct 2017 01:21:31
Ed033 who is going to set up our world class striker n January, this team is lacking confidence and speed, even Messi would struggle with our managers tactics.

{Ed033's Note - i didn't say it would be easy. Why would a world class striker want to come to Everton?


2.) 03 Oct 2017 07:50:43
Got to admit I did like Koeman and would love him to turn it around but personally I think he is on the edge of losing the dressing room, there is only one outcome then.

I think he has two more matches to save his job as we are not the Everton of old who will keep the manager as we cannot afford to sack him, Mr Moshiri is here now and as a self made billionaire he will not take fools lightly, we saw how quickly he wielded the axe with Robert Martinez

Regarding strikers for us in Jan, i'm at a loss who i'd want, no top striker will come to us at the minute, Carroll, Benteke not for me, I can't even think of anyone, its impossible replacing Rom as he was top drawers as we are all seeing now, hopefully we have someone lined up.


3.) 03 Oct 2017 11:22:27
Not sure Moshiri will sack RK let's face it he appointed him in the first place so he would be basically admitting that he made a mistake in hiring him. He wasn't conned or courted by RK he went after him. So I think RK will get a fair amount of time to turn things around a lot longer than some others hope/ think. The sacking of RM was completely different Moshiri didn't appoint him so had no loyalty what so ever to keep him. As for throwing money away I think he is a little bit more savvy than that.


4.) 03 Oct 2017 11:47:51
I'm sure Moshiri will have hired people in the past for his businesses that didn't perform as he'd hoped, who he subsequently had to sack.


5.) 03 Oct 2017 17:44:52
I believe that Moshiri wants success at Everton so for him the present situation is not acceptible. I am sure that he is looking at alternatives as we speak but will want to give Koeman a little more time, but not much. If a world class candidate is available and would agree to come to Everton I believe time is running out for Koeman.

Two or Three things from last night, one a complaint the others valid in my view. The first what has happened to the state of refereeing since they turned Pro, it is as if they don't have to try. You have Mason who is God awful and now this Lemon Madely trying hard to catch him up. The other points, we need another CB or maybe 2 and certainly one that can play toward the left. Jags is far to slow now and Williams not far behind. We really do need a big striker to hold the ball up, especially the way we play. That will allow Rooney in particular to run in, he is much better coming from behind the ball now.

billscrocodiletears

1.) 22 Aug 2017 12:37:19
Jags showed brilliant pace last night nearly back to his best.


2.) 22 Aug 2017 13:02:02
Game of opinions Uran mate. No probs.


3.) 22 Aug 2017 16:14:16
Thanks Bills C T,


 

 

14 Aug 2017 19:23:34
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.

billscrocodiletears

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.

billscrocodiletears

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.

The Blancs of this World only function where there is loads of Dosh and stability already exists. Despite the hype of a fairly rich majority share holder we do not in comparison have loads of dosh neither do we have stability. I reiterate Dyche abd Silva are used to working with Teams in our current position. At the moment the likes of Blanc are a luxury we cannot risk.

I would also argue that Scheiderlin was not that much better in his first season. When I look back at all the home games last season, he actually played the same way, hardly a pass was incisive but rather safe or diagonal not exactly breaking fast.

Evertonthings, come on lad, why do you comment on this board or any other board, is it to collect brownie points? Of course it isn't. Personally I have had enough, no reflection on any individual. But that is enough for me. I wish Everton a successful rest of season and of course I am there at all the home games.

Evertonthings. My Grandson walked out against Young Boys holding Jags hand. Lots of photo's taken (as you would) , two weeks later, driving home, Grandaughter (don't you love em) shouts out from the back seat, 'Grandad, '*****' has something to tell you but he doesn't want to upset you'. He still supports the 'Dark side', yet is quite happy just this week to attend the NAC with Everton. I have to believe he will in time revert once again to the true Team of Liverpool and not the Norwegian contingent.

Their right is to have their say 'Myteamsbetterthanyours', your right is to give a polite response (or that is what I would respect/ expect) . Pull necks in, is not in my view a polite response.

Ed002 I have respect for but I have to admit the caustic wit and comments are perhaps at times a little too much. Having said that I would not wish injury on any member of any Team and in particular a member of Everton. How we can make a judgement and be super critical of Mangala when the man has only had minutes in an Everton shirt is beyond me. In this I am in agreement with Mr Ed.
