The England Football Team Have Two Problems

Not read the full post as surely the two problems are Gareth and Southgate?

All these amazing players at his disposal and he manages to get it so wrong.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2024 09:19:02
Yes he gets it wrong so badly everytime, but just imagine what a Pep Giuidiola could do with this bunch and generation of young players and talent, will be interesting to see who the FA appoint after calamity Gareth leaves his post shortly!

24 Jun 2024 09:35:49
Tend to agree, but don't think it's just Gareth, we have had some cracking squad and first 11 over past 30 years but for whatever reason we can't get over the line, definitely a mentality thing.

He is our most successful England manager of recent times, which says alot.

In terms of England and Euro's, I see the negativity sparking us, think we may see a good performance tomorrow and a different England in knockouts.

Sorry your being a bit harsh on GS as he said he hasn't had Kalvin Philips were a Pep has! KP makes a massive difference, just by having his name on the roster has made a significant impact to Peps MC team!

Think that sums up that post as what ed has posted great reading asalways have to agree with dan in my opinion GS sets up negative tactics i don't know what's worse harry kane saying the team don't know how to press or GS saying were missing kalvin Phillips think its laughable we go a goal up and instead of chasing a second goal we sit off and let the opposition attack us same against Croatia in world cup go goal up we panicked an loose and then again against Italy in final go goal up and sit back and loose Luke shaw shoudnt never been called up while injured phil foden shoudnt be on the left and i do like trent and i have no doubt he can play in midfield for liverpool but the way southgate is picking him there i have no idea why southgate has only one tactic we get a goal we put 10 behind ball and if he does get sacked which personally he deserves to the only 2 manager's who would win something for England and this is my opinion so don't shoot me down is kloop or Guardiola 2 top class managers who during games can see what they need change if liverpool or city are struggling southgate can't in tactics and substitutes when needed i think the English managers have all been yes men to the FA but i know if these 2 ever did get appointment they woudnt be puppets for the fa but that's my view.

Now now, Gareth is doing a grand job and long may it continue. I'm sure I speak on behalf of most Scots, we are big Southgate supporters.

Nice to have your backing Scottish, Steve Clark and co certainly had mine last night.

Can I ask ed02 about this strategy Newcastle, Everton, villa and Chelsea are deploying in overpaying for each others players to beat ffp.

Is it clever business exploiting a loophole or illegal and could teams face problems down the line?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs are not buying players for more money that they are worth. Newcastle have a legitimate interest in two Everton players. There was a lot of interest in Maatsen and Aston Villa paid what Chelsea wanted, and Broussia Dortmund couldn't, to sign one of their players. Chelsea raised the availability of Omari Kellyman during discussions about another player. It is not a strategy.}

23 Jun 2024 15:18:10
Conspiracy theorists at it again then.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 20:37:56
It's not overpaying but it is unprecedented that 2 clubs like Villa and Everton would strike those deals for so called fringe/ backup players before the 30th June. I'm sure that will be evident when both clubs post their end of year accounts.
2 clubs that notoriously do their first team business later in the window have both managed to sign players despite being up against FFP in this financial year. 🤔.

{Ed025's Note - and 2 fringe players at that Smit, and both for undisclosed fees, and both clubs having PSR issues... it sounds a bit dodgy to me mate..

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 20:59:52
You got a suspicious mind Ed mate.

{Ed025's Note - and that’s why I’m a big Elvis fan GB.. 🤣

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 22:52:24
Not dodgy Ed just a two finger salute to Masters.

{Ed025's Note - that works for me just as well Smit..

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2024 12:09:43
I may be way off and this is purely a bystanders view so don't have a go if wrong but, say 10 mill for each player over 5 years 2 mill a year, so this year 8 mill profit for both clubs shows.

Yes I'm aware contracts may be shorter and amounts different but its Purley a guess. Will probably see more of these fringe player type deals over the teams in prem.

{Ed001's Note - if you sell for 10m you don't get 10m. 5% goes to the player sold. Then there is associated costs such as agent fees, which can be obscene these days. Then there is also 5% split between the clubs where he was developed at youth level. Unless a player came completely through Everton's academy system, you would get less than 9m in total. Probably substantially less with taxes and fees coming out of it.}

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2024 19:13:28
Cheers for the extra insight ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. It is easy to forget how much comes out of transfer fees. And often clubs will sell the debt on to get ready cash immediately rather than waiting for payments, so lose a large cut of it. Liverpool did that with the Coutinho money from Barcelona, to allow them to spend that summer, and it is very common for clubs to do that. Otherwise you are getting it in dribs and drabs and it often just gets swallowed up in the normal running costs.}

£60 million bid for Onana has to be a good deal for Everton surely with FFP only a week away, could bring in many from the lower leagues with that amount.

Agree4 0Disagree

24 Jun 2024 09:32:07
You can't "bring in many from the lower leagues with that amount".

One of our biggest problems to deal with is the mammoth wage bill. It urgently needs reducing. So the player (s) brought in using the funds from Onana would need to be on a lower wage/ lower combined wage than Onana was earning.

Too many people are caught up by the initial transfer fee and neglect to factor in the costs of actually paying wages for (x) amount of years which is the real sustainability issue we find ourselves in.

I've never seen him play, what kind of player is he GB? I'm guessing he's pretty good given your enthusiasm?

Agree5 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 12:25:23
He’s quick mate would take him any day, young lad with enthusiasm just what Sean needs to start building a new Team.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 12:32:18
I just read he very very quick and is abit like Forrest Gump and doesn't stop running a game against ajax he ran twice as many sprints as anyone else on the pitch, and has a good goal and assist record for his age, I think he would be a fantastic option for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 12:34:41
Never heard of him?

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 13:05:17
Has anyone actually seen him play? Quick, young and enthusiastic, haven't we got one of them who we are letting Villa hav.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 18:18:21
Hes a centre mid that moved up from CD. Dobbin is a wide forward who would suit a 433 which we aren't ever going to play under Dyche.
Personally I don't think Dobbin is prem standard. Is the Villa guy? Who knows but if he is then we have got the better deal.

I for one will be so glad to see the back of DCL let's get a new young and hungry forward in to replace the sick note.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 22:42:59
Do you think he wanted to be injured and miss so many games for us and see his chances of playing for England evaporate?

I hate the way some of our "fans" talk about players. He's always tried his best on the pitch and off it has should gratitude for what he's been given in the way he talks about the club and applied himself to its community.

I give up honestly.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 23:17:10
I got told it was mental health issues with DCL more than body injuries? Not a clinical finisher but has scored some important goals for us and I do hope we keep him he loves the club and is a hand full. who else we going to get chris wood or weghorst.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 23:53:13
Not to mention, BJU, some important goals that helped us to maintain our Premier league status but some will ignore that to suit their own agenda mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 00:28:46
I’m with you BlueJohn, he picked up most of his injuries putting himself about for our club and you can see what it means to him to score a goal for Everton. Wouldn’t blame him for moving on with the stick he gets. We’ve far worse players than Dom that we should be looking to move on. The fact that Newcastle are keen should tell the fans something about how good he can be.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 03:02:27
In the last 3 seasons he's played 66 games and scored 14 goals. Whether he loves the club or not isn't an issue, his strike rate is. simply not good enough if we want to start climbing the table.

He may well score more goals at Newcastle with more creative players around him but that's not us atm.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 08:41:25
So we’re looking for a number 9 that can score 15 goals a season without a decent number 10 or wingers that can beat their fullback and get a cross in?

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 10:03:12
Maybe we can finally get rid of the 1 up front system that kills our team every season.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 10:23:58
So blue John would you like us to buy an injury prone striker who's goals per game strike record is not the best but tried his best?
This is type of attitude is what's holding us back.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 12:27:30
Have to agree Skylark you hit the nail on the head mate, we need 5 or 6 new players and Sean has started recruiting early.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2024 14:28:37
Buy no and sell yes. Although my reason for selling is due to the contract he has.

My problem is the disdain people have towards our players simply for putting their body on the line. He's had abuse for his injuries, his taste in clothes and called kinds by his own fans, especially over the last three years.

Personally though I think Newcastle or anyone else will be getting an excellent CF. The narrow view of goals neglects his around link up play and how good he holds the ball, brining others into the game. But his contract situation means we must sell unless he signs.

£35 million being quoted as the asking price for DCL, we get any where near that it would be good business we can invest the money in younger players.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 18:58:31
That Adam hozlek for Czech Republic looks a good player up front. I'm sure we were interested before bit probs out our price range.

Agree0 0Disagree

Sean looking to finally change our Team around with new youngsters coming in, going to be an exciting window mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 19:42:03
GB do you genuinely believe that the players we have signed and are linked with are dyche signings?

Personally think this is Thelwell making these decisions.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 20:12:57
He’s our manager good so yeah he has a say in who we bring in mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 22:41:40
I’ wouldn’t be surprised if, it being Everton, that the DOF is told by the manager to get someone in and we end up with the 4th or 5th choice on the list….

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 14:24:06
With DCL maybe we need the cash for FFP, if so would sooner he and Onana and others go go as long as we keep JB, and then get some youth into the Team for rebuilding.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 14:15:23
If what I'm reading is true and turns out to happen, we've done well. Selling Calvert lewin who let's remember went 20 games without a goal and I've never seen him score a great goal, some good headers but not a top class forward, if we were to sell him and dobbin and bring in minteh from Newcastle and Harrison and have Harrison on his natural left side, Mcniel in the ten and Minteh on the right and get the adebayo or Abraham upfront sorry but I think it's a much better team with players in more natural positions. I know the Ed's are saying we don't play attractive football but I don't Dyche will be the man for the first game at Bramley Moore he will get this year whilst Friedkin understands what needs to be done.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 16:28:32
Good post mate some very shrewd moves going on at the Club, looking forward to this window I can see we will have a very different Team for the start of the coming season, exciting times.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 17:45:44
Couldn't agree more mate. I am yet to see him curl a ball or lace one. I am not even sure if he can. Great in the air but he needs a partner. Him and Isak could work like magic but we don't have the players to get the best out of him.

Would rather have Harrison battle it out for the left wing with McNeil tbh. That will make both of their levels go up.

Then we can go and get a player who can play in tight spaces, is comfortable going either way and has a decent bit of vision e. g. Hamer from Sheff.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 18:40:08
Minteh seems a good player looks like we have a chance to get him, this is the start of big turn around in our Team, can’t come quick enough.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jun 2024 23:24:16
My pal who is a Leeds fan said harrison played were he wanted across the pitch and wasn't a left or right winger 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 because i said he was s. t on the right.
