Rumors of interest in Ludogorets winger cafe. Also say Leicester and west ham interested. Any idea ed?

cropper16

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. Ludogorets had previously said that Leicester and Aston Vill had enquired after Jonathan Cafu but Leicester have held initial talks now and have made an enquiry about whether he would likely be eligible for a work permit.}

Hearing lookman should be confirmed by the weekend. Hopefully we can wrap up a deal for morgan early too but I know we are a bit off on this one from what ed mentioned.

Having medical today, first of a few I hope.

Ed I'm guessing the mertens link is a load of crap?

cropper16

{Ed002's Note - Obviously I have no idea about any links but he has been in England this week and was at the last Chelsea game - but that is nothing to do with Everton. He has an agreement for a new contract at Napoli that his agent was working on at the start of December. Perhaps it is related to the interest that Southampton had a while ago when Koeman first arrived? So I can't help.}


1.) 02 Jan 2017 13:25:38
That's plenty of help. Nice one as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Ed002, any chance of the January transfer plans?

cropper16

{Ed002's Note - I am working through the updates as a series of Sharkopods, Liverpool is the first. Others will follow in the next week or two including Everton.}

Ed, a little while ago you mentioned that you would try to share some information, about our plans for January, when you got time. I know your a busy guy so just giving you a prod :)

cropper16

{Ed002's Note - I am hoping that I can get a bunch done by Friday Cropper.}


1.) 07 Nov 2016 15:16:40
Brilliant. Look forward to it!


2.) 07 Nov 2016 16:48:52
Judging by Saturdays performance there needs to be a lot done just hope we don't sign the German lad.


3.) 07 Nov 2016 19:34:48
What German lad?


4.) 07 Nov 2016 20:08:11
I meant Bastian schwiensteig we been linked with him on loan.


5.) 08 Nov 2016 09:17:41
A short loan until the end of the season would not be a bad idea. Let's remember this fella has won world cups and champions league and countless league titles in Germany. You can't buy that experience. We are not yet eating at the top table so players like Bastian can help youngsters progress, I remember last season he schooled Ross on the pitch with his movement and passing ability. He would provide cover for Barry and Gana so I would have him.

Read that we are rekindling interest in kone and may be willing to look at a deal involving mccarthy. Really hope not. I really think macca has a part to play if fit and I'm not convinced on kone. Plus I know what ed thinks about swap deals so hopefully this is bs.

cropper16

1.) 15 Jan 2017 22:25:40
I agree better option around to Kone


2.) 16 Jan 2017 01:17:37
They can have our Kone for free if they pay for McCarthy. what a deal!


 

 

15 Jan 2017 18:08:17
Really happy to see rom having a good chat with lookman as he was about to come on. We have all had a go at his character in the past but personally I feel he is growing up a bit. Would be really interested in finding out what he said

cropper16

1.) 15 Jan 2017 19:11:12
When you get it pass to me, I'm the one who scores the goals.

I know we are all hoping for a few more signings but we may have to be a little bit more realistic. If belfodil signs our spending will be close to 45 million. Personally I can see another one coming in before we focus on youth. If we manage that and manage to get rid of some dead wood, I'll be happy with that. I think some people won't be happy until we have spent 100m for the sake of it. Just my opinion anyway.

cropper16

1.) 13 Jan 2017 10:49:27
I am happy with the business we have done so far and would be happy to wait for the summer for any more additions if RK and SW think its appropriate. For me any more additions this window would be jus icing on the cake


2.) 13 Jan 2017 11:05:55
I would still like to see acreative midfielder come in with a bit of experience. Anda bit of pace. I am sure Tom Davies will become a fine player fromwhat I have seen, but it would be nice for him to have someone with a bit of experience to nurture him. Barkley needs that too I feel. Although in his last league game he looked dominant. I just feel we are slow at breaking out and by the time we get to the other end, the opposition has reorganised their defence 2 or 3 times.


3.) 13 Jan 2017 18:22:20
I agree Degsy although a player who can play as a 9 or 10 would be ideal just in case Lukaku gets injured.
Other than that an experienced winger would be good too and then look at a CB and keeper in the summer.
2 more in hopefully

Looks like witsel has gone to China. This is the same player who chose to go to Russia instead of coming to us (or picking out of a few other clubs) . Now he has apparently chosen China over Juventus and a few other clubs. I'm sure he has chosen that because of the better quality of football and not because he is now the 7th highest paid player. just saying.

Obviously not where we need to be but thought that was a decent improvement. Gueye weren't the only one that was arsed. Though mirallas put a shift in which was good to see. Valencia actually gives us another option up front.

In the next 2 windows I think we need (not counting for any major leavers)

Gk - forster or begovic as potentially a cheaper option
Cb - would love van dijk or Keane but fear we will lose out to bigger first. Loads to look at overseas
Lb - not sure on this. Rodriguez would probably be my no 1.
Cm - this one is to replace Barry. Think schniederlin could do a job. Also I rate arter from Bournemouth
Cam - some pressure on ross. Not sure on this one. Dunno whether we should go for a big signing who might bring the end of our diamond or someone who can be versatile and cover other positions
Winger - would really like brahimi but would be happy with a loan move for delay
St - lookman could be a very good signing for us who could cover across the front.

It's a shame that our youth isn't getting much of a look. 1 or 2 of the above could potentially be covered. In terms of January, I think a gk, cb and an attacking player should be our priority.

1.) 04 Dec 2016 21:22:15
Add a centre mid into the January list and it'll do for me.


2.) 04 Dec 2016 21:50:09
Think that would be my next pick. Just know it's hard in January.


3.) 05 Dec 2016 10:29:34
January is never the right time to buy and i would be happy with just a couple of additions to give us a plan b maybe until the end of the season.
You don't usually get quality in tje winter window and if you do its at inflated prices.
The summer is when we should see our squad take shape and consist of players RK wants and needs for his system and philosophy.

Mayou be wrong but I heard he previously had problems as he was owned by a third party that caused issues. But either way, he does seem to be doing better

Think the vast majority of us agree with you ed. Ill trust his judgment and support whoever he recommends

cropper16

{Ed001's Note - glad to hear that, he knows what he is doing. He won't get every signing right, but he will improve recruitment massively.}

Hopefully not. Good player but we don't need another aging centre back

Ive just saw that. In no way an expert so I'm probably wrong but surely that could be seen as a conflict of interest? Uzmanovs company part owning arsenal but sponsoring everton?

The money would just go on paying players more money and covering the additional agents costs (since that are essentially negotiating more often) . I get the idea behind it but ffp is the way to go for me. The problem is there is a million ways around it.

Think that could be a good point. We know as well as anyone how sometimes the defender that catches the eye is not the one who is doing the best. Yobo, lescott even stones (Although to a lesser extent as he weren't bought for his defensive skills) have been picked out of our team. At the time it was often the unit that was good, let by a captain in defence like jags. One thing I would say about vvd is that he looked top quality before Southampton so maybe it's worth the risk

Really? Further down the line with signings? It's the 5th and we are close to announcing our first signing? Who else has made any significant signings?

cropper16

{Ed025's Note - we do need to show some patience cropper but degsy does have a valid point, you would think that most of the negotiations would have been done before the window opened and it would just be a case of dotting the I,s and crossing the T,s, we have lost out in previous windows by trying to do business late and its ended up with us missing out, i know tapping up is not allowed but we all know it goes on and hopefully walsh will have identified his targets and that things are starting to move mate....if only to wipe that smug smile off that lecherous jim white,s face when deadline day comes.. :)

I would think that he isn't meant to go into the first 11 but into the squad. If anyone thinks he is going to come and be a complete world beater immediately then they need to think again. We must give him the chance to develop properly.

Not sure I would let jags leave. Especially not without a top class replacement as that would leave us with 3 cbs including Holgate. Also he is our captain and has been a very good servant for us.
