Drinkwater now linked. Would be great for us.

He's slower than a slug. Do we need another slow midfielder?


2.) 08 Aug 2018 14:49:18
Not exactly the powerhouse box to box midfielder that typically plays in Silva’s systems is he?


3.) 08 Aug 2018 15:32:09
He can do the Shnieds job much better great sighning.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 17:20:38
He's been terrible for Chelsea when he's managed to get on the pitch.


5.) 08 Aug 2018 21:13:56
Had one good season next to Kante but nothing since.

I would like him to do well being an English player and this is the sort of player that we could attract but I don’t think this wasn’t another case of Chelsea ruining an English player, he just wasn’t good enough in the first place, not for us and certainly not for champs league and title contender team.

One bit of banter that seems to have escaped us is there are rumours that Kenwright is about to quit. That would allow the 2 ex Arsenal money men take over completely. I would like to thank Kenwright for always putting the club first and being the best Chairman in the Premier League by a country mile!

Agree wholeheartedly mate, never has there been a truer Blue than Bill, I thank him from the bottom of my heart for what he done for our Club,


2.) 08 Aug 2018 18:51:27
Defo. He (along with Moyes) turned round the fortunes of our club. I dread to think where we'd be now if he hadn't taken on the job. (I say "job", it's clearly always been a passion project for Bill! )

Ok to try and put a realistic view on it some facts: World Cup Final is 15th July. The transfer window closes early this season on August 9th. That is just over 3 weeks. Although we may sign players from teams knocked out, it is unlikely that we will be signing players still involved until after 16th July. In fact any negotiations with players are likely to start on or after 16th July. That leaves 23 days to make signings. I expect that is when Everton will start things really moving and why I have posted previous posts. Remember that other teams might also be waiting to see if they can get certain players in the same way as we are, so the first few days after the world cup is likely to be a scramble with players having a few choices of clubs. Some in Europe and some not. That's when I expect us to start making announcements. probably around 20th July and onwards.

1.) 20 Jun 2018 22:49:54
Nothing to stop clubs granting permission before agents thrashing out the initial part of negotiations and then some teams will probably allow discussions on rest days whereas others may not
Just have to see what can be done.


2.) 21 Jun 2018 08:08:41
There's also plenty of good players who are not at the world cup for us to look at too. Probably best to hold on for a bumpy ride until the window closes.


3.) 21 Jun 2018 09:22:06
It's worth noting that 16 teams can do business from the 28th June. 8 more on the 3rd July. 4 more on the 7th July and 2 more on the 14th July.
We can also buy an English player after the final.


4.) 21 Jun 2018 15:38:03
Very droll smit. We actually look good so far while big teams struggle. Who know how far we can go.
Also fred has just completed his move to man Utd so we can sign players who are active at world cup. Seatbelts on for roller coaster couple of months.

I wonder if ED002 can help with a question that relates to some of my banter posts. I don't wish to appear a know it all, but some posters on here have been talking about getting rid of 11 or 12 players and signing of many players. I did a couple of posts saying that it would be highly unlikely that we offloaded more than 2 or 3 senior players due to lucrative contracts and players unwillingness to take salary reductions. Added to which, after the world cup there is less than 2 weeks to tie up deals with the transfer window closing 2 days earlier this year. My question to Ed is, "Do you know if there are any senior players likely to leave and are there any players in current discussion with Everton at an advanced stage? " and I think I can guess the answuer to part 2 of my question.

degsyp

{Ed002's Note - This lust of players that are available is the same as I gave acouple of days or so ago. You are right about the mine, as the club will be paying up to $75k for Rooney and £xM for having three managers on the books still.}


1.) 20 Jun 2018 14:30:03
Sorry didn't see your other post Ed002. Wow we are still paying Rooney that much? And 2 previous manager salaries! Plus which players would be happy to take a step down and a salary reduction? I think Everton have had too much turnover of staff in recent years and tied themselves up in contracts galore! I will have a look for your previous post. Suffice it to say, I expect little change in the staff at Everton.


2.) 20 Jun 2018 23:27:03
You don’t get to be a billionaire by making daft business decisions. If Moshiri has made mistakes, he’ll have learnt from them. Give the new set up a chance. Some players will leave. Even if we are paying a percentage of their wage, it still reduces the overall wage bill. Rushing into signings is what got us into trouble last season.


3.) 21 Jun 2018 12:28:36
but the 75k I take will only be for one year? As it makes no sense to pay that amount for the 3 years reported as it would cost us less to keep him for 1 year on his full salary.

So far I am extatic. Baines looked like his old self now he has a bit pf quality on his side and a player who works hard getting back too. The 2 goals we conceded were mistakes. The 1st by Jags who I love but as I have been saying is getting slower and slower to react. The 2nd by Keane who was caught between 2 forwards. His inexperience and lack of leadership is apparent to me. He has a mouth and should be bossing that defence making sure he only had 1 forward to mark. I saw us concede too many goals like this last season. But Mina's height and hopefully his experience will sort those type of goals out. Holgate is looking more and more assured and like I previously said will probably feature more this season. Pickford was at fault for the 1st. No doubt about that too. But overall a great shot stopper. not sure why he moved to the right? Bad decision. Yes Jags is now past it I think. Baines can still go on but is likely to pick up niggles and at least we now have options in the squad with other players to come in.

degsyp

1.) 12 Aug 2018 10:49:27
degsyp, I normally agree with you and do so this time up to a point with Keane. The lad had two in the centre to mark correct, but looking at the play, our DM's really need to move left and right at times - admittedly Gueye does his job, but Schneiderlin (yes I know for all you that have a go at us for constantly having a go at the lad) really has to make a positive move instead of this one step forward - I am coming for you pretence - and two steps back. The bloke did make some break up play yesterday but with his experience, he really should be making a mark on the game. On the positive side, didn't think Silva could make a difference so early but that was an overall positive performance and a determined one at last.


2.) 12 Aug 2018 12:11:06
Keane was not at fault for the second goal. The guy had all day to pick his pass from the edge of our box. Midfield should have been on his toes blocking the cross, not standing admiring it. Even young Holgate was having a go at them for standing off.


3.) 12 Aug 2018 12:15:12
I haven't looked at it again DFS, but you may be right. It's just that I remember Keane doing the same a few times last season. At times he looks great, but he has a mouth and needs to learn to use it. This is what experience does. Players should be communicating with each other and if they have a man free in our box, it is 100% up to the center half (s) to talk to each other and make sure both forwards are marked. Maybe Baines should have been shouting to Keane that there was a man behind him? Either way I have seen Keane in that position a few times now where the ball goes over his head by 6 inches and there is a forward behind him ready to knock it in. Other than that he sometimes looks good. Its all about positional sense and opening your mouth to make sure all forwards are marked one on one. Re Holgate, I can see him playing with either Mina or Zouma this season. The lad looks great.


4.) 12 Aug 2018 16:52:13
If you give a quality player time to pick his pass then he will. Had Keane gone to the back post then he would have played it to there man on the front post. Then you would have been blaming him for not marking him. Fact is the midfield at the moment are just not good enough. But hey let’s look to the future and not dwell in the past, as hopefully that is about to be addressed.


5.) 12 Aug 2018 20:30:28
Woburn, the only thing I am saying is he should open his mouth.


 

 

11 Aug 2018 20:19:11
Hats off to the way with 10 men we still chased the game and tried so hard to get a winner. Tough on Jags. Was it really a sending off? If so I expect we will play lots of games this season against 10 men! Well done the whole club and well done the players on the pitch. No blame anywhere for anything from me. They all gave 110% and no less!

degsyp

1.) 11 Aug 2018 21:02:21
It was good to see the confidence back in them Degsy. I don't think it was a sending off either and the ref for me was a bit clueless. A decent start and should give us all confidence we can get three points next time out.


2.) 11 Aug 2018 21:02:59
I’m gutted we didn’t win for the players sake. They deserved more than a draw. Great character to take the lead with a man disadvantage. If we show that kind of spirit at Goodison the place will be rocking.

Wolves definitely have quality, but I think they’ll finish about 3 or 4 places below us.


 

 

09 Aug 2018 07:29:31
I don't know if this is a 100% true but is related to us maybe getting Zouma and or Drinkwater on loan from Chelski. It sort of shows you how things have changed in football. I was told it by a guy on holiday who seemed very knowledgable in football terms. "Did you know that Chelski had 38 players out on loan last season? That includes youth players and all the u21's, u23's etc. but 38 players? Surely that is ridiculous. ".

degsyp

1.) 09 Aug 2018 08:00:15
We can only loan one player from a club at a time so it would one or the other degsy but 38 players out on loan it's pathetic and shouldn't be allowed.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 08:06:27
Believe it or not that's pretty average. I think the Italian clubs to have the most and Barcelona are famed for it.

I remember reading Juventus had almost 70 out on loan one year.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 08:21:36
Buy them cheap, loan them out, add the Chelsea tax and sell them on. Sounds like good business to me.


 

 

08 Aug 2018 20:35:55
Seriously it appears Chelsea have entered the race for Bernard.

1.) 08 Aug 2018 20:50:06
Bit late I think Degsy.


2.) 08 Aug 2018 20:50:36
He had his medical ages ago he must be signed up now, Chelsea had there chance and didn’t take it, he will be announced tomorrow 👍.


3.) 08 Aug 2018 22:21:39
Unless as happened with Nigel Martyn when he signed for Leeds Utd after agreeing to sign for us. then he travels to London tomorrow, has a quick medical and if they offer him the same deal as we did? Times are different, but it is feasible? Any info on this ED002?

{Ed002's Note - Sorry - I have explained what I know.}


4.) 09 Aug 2018 10:02:07
Days old that report degsyp, he has been at finch farm since just after 4 today.


 

 

08 Aug 2018 20:33:23
I have heard that we are not signing Bernard, we are also not signing Mina. Kurt Zouma is also only a rumour and so is Rojo or Smalling. However I heard it on authority that we will sign 4 or 5 left backs with minutes to go before the transfer window closes. sound familiar? only joking fellow Blues. I thought I would lighten the mood!

Holgate will become a fine player. He is still much too young to be a commanding CH as yet though. 2 more years will show what he is capable of becoming.

Like I said in the banter post. it appears all the comments about Lookman being unhappy are coming from the Leipzig boss. I can only think he is trying to unsettle Lookman and Everton.

degsyp

{Ed002's Note - Lookman wanted assurances and is now having to watch Everton hunt around for players in his position - the likes of Rebic, Malcom, Brahimi and Richarlison all being mentioned. He knows he can get first team football in Germany and certainly Trimboli has spoken to the likes of Southampton, Arsenal, Spartak and Crystal Palace as well as RBL.}

I think the club were shocked at Barkley's determination to leave. Especially as it coincided with Lukaku. That's are 2 top scorers and there was and obvious need to replace them both. We were then caught up in the shock of extra TV money causing an instant increase intop players values. so the likes of Sigurdson's fee of £45 million cames as a shock. Add into that Giroud mucking about. signing/ not signing and then the availability of Rooney and Klaasen. (Klaasen's fee being somewhat lower) . The whole lot was messy and poor. then Baines got injured. it is just all messy. but the dice didn't fall in the best way for us.

He might have to hop in Smit666! He is a half decent player but looked so much better when with Barry who was the classier of the two. I am hoping Shneids looks better now he has Richarlison one side, Walcott the other and Gueye to support him. Added to which, Tom Davies should be able to step up this season and I reckon Kieran Dowell is almost ready for some games.

I think the previous transfer windows were a negative on our club. I believe we went backwards after Moyes went (please understand I am not bigging Moyes up. I am saying we went backwards after he left) . Of course other clubs have invested and moved forwards during this time. We made one or two really good signings. Lukaku and Barry spring to mind. But in general, we replaced good players with players not of the same level. Then we had the transfer window where we didn't sign a forward and seemed to sign 5 midfielders/ number 10's and no left sided players. As you all know I moaned and moaned and moaned about this, but I am pleased to say that this last transfer window was aimed at addressing the problems that the squad had. We have signed players in all the positions that I moaned were weak. We also signed players in the age groups needed for their respective positions. The only concerns I have now relate to how quickly the team can gel together and slight worries about the quality of the players we have not yet seen in an Everton shirt. One thing I am 100% positive about is that we are at last moving in the right direction again. I have no idea where we are or where we can get with this bunch of players? But I know for sure that we are ahead of the likes of Southampton and the "middle bunch of clubs". We need to now start introducing the youngsters that are coming through. Holgate in my view is a star in the making. Dowell has everything necessary to be the missing link we need. A box to box midfielder who is not afraid to run at players and even rocket one in from 30 yards. Tom Davies suffered 2nd season syndrome but believe me I saw enough in his goal against Man City to know he also has what it takes. I know lots of you think of me as Mr negative. but I see myself as Mr Realistic. And here is the key. I am now so positive about what I have seen in our youngsters, the new signings and the remaining established players. If we can find a center forward 22 year old from lower leagues or even the Irish League for about £80 grand (allowing for inflation) , we will have some team. I like Tosun, but think we need someone with more pace. Maybe Richarlison is that player? But that leaves us weak on the left again. So it is a work in progress. but at least we are progressing now. We are not going backwards and we are not standing still! To get that top 6 position, we need to keep at it.

Baines looked good but I suspect it was the quality of Richarlison ahead of him and supporting him that made him look like his old self.
