Ed002 did we actually have a serous look at Favre? I thought he'd have been really good for us. We presumably could have competed with Nice on salary if we'd wanted him, although I guess living on the Cote d'Azur is worth something.

coyb

{Ed002's Note - Everton certainly considered Favre but he knew he was not going to be first pick. Nice gave him an offer, they have a nice new stadium and, as you say, the South of France is a better place to live than Merseyside - although perhaps not Nice itself.}


1.) 27 May 2016 19:37:59
Have you been to Bootle, Ed? I'd swap it for Nice. So if he knew he wasn't first pick, does that mean they had an order of preference from the start or just he knew he hadn't impressed them that much after talking to them?

{Ed002's Note - The club has potential managers where they want to guage their interest and they don't want to make a knee-jerk reaction even though that is what many of the fans want.}


2.) 28 May 2016 07:31:30
Spot on. Look what happened last time.


3.) 28 May 2016 07:58:34
Again, last time Martinez was appointed on 5th June. 2 months after Moyes has given notice. Wasn't a knee jerk reaction.

Can't believe I'm wasting my time writing about this but that clown who previews matches on the BBC football site has predicted as usual the blues to draw and the reds to win. Had a look at how his predictions relate to reality at the bottom of the page: over the season so far, he'd have that lot top of the league nearly 30 points ahead of us. Part of my license fee goes into his bank account. What a twit.

Don't want to open up the debate about Rooney, but with David Silva MoM for City today, it stuck me Rooney and Silva are the same age. I would literally cry with joy if we got David Silva. Why the big difference when we talk about Rooney. Since he joined the EPL in 2010, Silva has provided more assists than any other player, but 2nd highest over the same time?

I read that a player has a limited time at the top of his game. Something like 10 years. Rooney's early start at the top leads to an earlier finish so the theory goes.


2.) 05 Mar 2017 23:06:04
In the main Glennk yea but there are exceptions. Don't have to go to far for one. Wasn't Barry 17 when he started and is 35 now?


3.) 06 Mar 2017 07:43:21
Different position NBTB. Rooney's position requires pace. Something he is starting to lose.

If we get him fine. However, for a club wanting to attack this top six we have to move away from this type of player and start being more dynamic. No-one in that top six would want Rooney. Also potentially in wages alone we would be looking at a layout over 3 years of around £20mil. That's hopefully if he halves his wages. Plus United will want a fee.


4.) 06 Mar 2017 08:13:54
I know what your saying BlueJohnUns but there's also exceptions in Rooney's position. Teddy Sheringham, Ibrahimavic and Ryan Giggs all started as teenagers. First 2 went to round 40. Zlatan is still going strong at 35.

The way Rooney plays would of took a lot out of him. No doubt about it. If signed I would be hoping the change back to the team he supports would put a spring in his step and he'd have a few more seasons to go.

I believe it come down to one thing. If Rooney wants to come, he will. The lure of silly money in China might be too much or maybe he won't care about the money because let's face it he isn't stuck for it. In this instance he may choose us.

I have every faith in Koeman and Walsh on what might come of it.


5.) 07 Mar 2017 09:10:25
I would be over the moon to get either Rooney or Silva. Both are still exceptional footballers.

Good to see a few Utd supporters wishing Morgan well on the official club Twitter feed yesterday. We've got a class player there. I'm still struggling to want them to win today though, even though I know I should.

Everton top of the EPL firm table over the last 6-7 games. Only Spurs have earned as many points but we have better gd. Over the last 11 games, we would be 4th. I know it doesn't count for anything really but so good to see a reasonably sustained run of very good results including through the period when Gana was away. Need to keep our foot on the pedal now we have the squad in shape.

Just been reading a report on Vincent Janssen, who we were talking a lot about last year before he joined (of course) Spuds for £18 million. He was supposed to be the next big thing and I was disappointed we didn't get him. 3 goals in 23 games and none from open play, along with comments from Pochettino referring to his fitness and motivation suggest we might have dodged a bullet. I still feel we have to get another striker but just shows there are no guarantees that new players who come in will work out. These things happen at every club. We moan about Niasse, McGeady, etc. but Spuds spent £48 million on this lad and Sissoko and we had posters on here berating the board for not getting these players in. We need a bit more patience and a bit more realism. We're going in the right direction even though it takes time.

We were also linked with Batshuayi and look how that 33 million has gone, can't even get a game when Costa was out. This is where walsh will earn his corn, Sussing out the character of a player as well as their talent.


2.) 14 Jan 2017 09:01:49
Quite right. As you say every club had duds and wonder buys. For every niasse and janssen, there is a dele alli (5 mil, wow) or Tim Cahill (2 mil)
We can't expect the board or managers to get every purchase right but some managers are better than others.
We just have to trust their judgement, support the players and if it don't work out let them move on to somewhere it may work for them and we try something different.

I think with the huge confidence round the club, new players etc, we may get something from city tomorrow. Coyb.

Never forget Torres! Chelsea also had Shevchenko, Zhirkov, Wright-Phillips and Boulahrouz. Utd had Veron, Anderson, Kleberson, Bebe, Falcao, Di Maria (and I would add Depay) . Spurs had Soldado as well as the two mentioned above (and Sergei Rebrov - remember him? ) . City have had Robinho, Roque Santa Cruz, Jo, Negredo, Mangala. Our noisy neighbours (and I take no pleasure in this) have had Downing, Keane, Diouf, Aquilani and we must not forget Andy Carroll. Van der Meyde, Bilyaletdinov and Niasse put together don't add up to his fee alone. If we start spending money closer to that of our rivals, we will probably see a few who are flops over the years, but I think - for the money - Everton's signings over the years have been as good overall as almost any other to-flight club. Possibly except Southampton.

Size doesn't matter. It's the quality that counts. That's what I keep telling my girlfriend. No wonder she's imaginary.

Berahino has a terrible attitude. Don't want him anywhere near Everton.

Dembele signed for Celtic sensibly to get regular first team football, which we couldn't promise him at that stage. Sometimes fans think a club can just choose who they want to buy and the player doesn't even get a say. As often as not, it's the player isn't interested in coming rather than we didn't look at them.

Get rid of players with bad attitudes: Geri, Lennon. Bring in Depay. How does that make sense? Schneiderlin could add to the team, though.

With all the ambition possible and with the best will in the world, Moshiri can't force players to sign contracts if they don't want to. Even if Rom and Ross left and no major names sign, it doesn't mean that we can't carry on building and improve over time. We have to have patience. We're not in the CL and it's a tall order for us to qualify in the next three years, so really top players with short careers are not going to see us as attractive yet. Let those who know what they're doing put their long-term plan into action without getting on their backs. The six clubs above us are still significantly richer than us and we have to spend hundreds of millions on a new stadium in addition to players' fees and wages. It's not going to be quick or easy but we're far better off than we have been for years. Let's just enjoy it.

Agree on that Degs! Whatever has gone on in recent years, it's what we're building for the future that matters and it's been a while since it felt this good to support Everton.

Degsy, you're analysis below lists a very selective set of facts and some slightly dubious ones. I never wanted Martinez and I'm glad he's gone. However, your analysis of the Moyes/ Martinez squads is disingenuous at best. As NBTB says, you've picked the best ever Moyes signings (forgetting Nigel Martyn for a minute) to compare with the full set of those made by Martinez. You've played down the good signings he made for very little outlay (Barry, Holgate and - potentially - Galloway) and ignored Mad Robbie's good points (there were a couple in the first season at least and it wasn't all down to Davie because we did better than we had ever done in terms of points that season! ) Let's not forget that as well as Cahill, Arteta, Baines, Jags and Seamus, Davie signed Richard Wright, Li Tie, James Beattie, Simon Davies, Per Kroldrup, Nuno Valente, Shandy Andy, Bilyaletdinov and Magaye Gueye for a combined fee of nearly £40 million - that must be at least £120 million in today's money. If we're going to count failed signings that cost less than a million, as you seem to want to, we can add another 30-odd players to Moyes' list. In addition to that, he had Eric Dier and Shkodran Mustafi at the club and let them go for nothing - together they're worth £60m plus now. You count Ross as a Moyes player - he barely had a first team game under Moyes! It was Martinez who brought him through (then ruined him, to be fair) . Holgate is class, Robles is coming good, can't blame him for a punt on Eto'o for free, we all thought Geri looked like a steal at £4.3m. There is no excuse for Niasse or McGeady and I was never a fan of Kone myself. Also, do you think we'd have sold Stones for nearly £50m if Moyes had still been in charge? The lad wouldn't have even got into the first team yet for the same reason he never played Ross - he makes too many mistakes. At least the Martinez hype earned us some good money there. Don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to say Bobby was good for us - he wasn't! Neither am I trying to say Moyes was rubbish - I think he did a great job over the years. It's just not as black and white as it's sometimes presented here: both managers made some very good signings and signed some duds. The point now is we have one of the best Directors of Football in the business, an owner with money and a plan, and a manager who seems to have got the team fitter and more resolute. There are some real plus points - some remaining from the Moyes era, some were Martinez' doing (I know it hurts) and some are being added now.

Ariana Grande or Jessica Alba. This could get interesting.
