Morning Ed's.
Is there any interest in teun koopmeiners from everton,?
Seen a few articles mentioning interest and wondering if there is any truth

Cheers for any info eds.

{Ed002's Note - Teun Koopmeiners (DM/CM) Milan have had an approach for Koopmeiners rebuffed after losing out on three other DM players. They do not have the funds to push to force a sale. As for Everton I would need to try and check, but if there is interest he would be a Brands choice and he is a very well thought of young player. Against a move happening are a number of points: (a) I am not sure that AZ Alkmaar would be open to selling their captain; (b) he plays in a side which plays a style of football Brands would like to instill throughout the entire club - but he is not being supported by the club in making that happen, and having Carlo as a different thinking coach won't help that quest; (c) if Gbamin is fit where does he fit in - although I see the argument that he would be an ideal Morgan Schneiderlin replacement - but will that give him sufficient game time. So a maybe, but I will try and find out more.}

Thanks for the info Ed's.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Hi eds. I see we are being linked with coutinho. is this a possibillity?

{Ed002's Note - Philippe Coutinho (AM/LW) after missing out on Bruno Fernandes and Hakim Ziyech Spurs have enquired after Coutinho and been told that a loan fee would €30M for a season with an option to buy at €50M at the end of the season with any loaning club paying half his wages. I would expect any interested side to look for a significant reduction on that. The player is being offered around PL sides. Barcelona will have to keep him if no takers are found although with money owed to Liverpool still there may be room for them to negotiate. Leicester might offer a solution to get him off the books - but there would be a need for some negotiation. I am not aware of Everton showing an interest nor how they would be able to fund such a move unless there was some creativity in a deal. And nota position Everton need to Phil. Iwould say very unlikely.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers ed.

24 Apr 2020 19:46:18
Phew! I was dreading Ed002's response but I say again Phew!

24 Apr 2020 09:51:34
Ed's, I see us linked with a lot of names in the papers. But realistically, can we really expect much business this summer given the current financial crisis and our existing FFP issues? .

{Ed002's Note - Everything is a little in the air whilst Carlo assesses what he needs, but thyere is continued influence over Mr Moshiri from advisors. I think the club will need to look for a CB and a S as the priority. Much will depend on who leaves and of course the likes of Yannick Bolasie will return from loan and line up with the collection of LW players.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2020 12:28:45
How do theses influences sit with Carlo?

{Ed002's Note - As long as he has a say it may not be a major problem. Much of his career has been in Italy where coaches tend not to be overly involved in transfers and many clubs use advisors who are well briefed. Klopp was persuaded to move for Salah over his three preferred options and that worked out well. Manchester United have someone trustworthy on the staff who drives decisions. The difference at Everton is the advice is going to the owner from people who are not experts.}

24 Apr 2020 13:16:23
would these include brands, who i assumed was more than qualified to assess possible new signings?

{Ed002's Note - Brands expertise is not being exploited at Everton.}

24 Apr 2020 19:52:08
Dixie; Brands field of so-called 'expertise' is narrow, more toward bringing through potential. His model is more long term. Problem being our (Everton) renowned impatience.

24 Apr 2020 21:34:43
It certainly looks like they are not experts ed . thanks for the info.

{Ed002's Note - Bill C is correct - Brands’ expertise is based on structure and time.}

25 Apr 2020 14:51:22
Clearly these advisors can’t see past the left wing with all that we sign and are interested in!

17 Apr 2020 17:55:01
Eds is there any truth in the rumour that Everton have agreed fee and terms with Gabriel Magalhaes? Or is this just rubbish from twitter et al? Cheers and stay safe.

{Ed002's Note - This was mentioned some months ago and I explained then it was rather premature. My notes say:

Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Lille didn't want to sell in January although Arsenal pushed - the player has signed a new contract, but Arsenal could look to him in again the summer if they do not sign Mari - else they are overrun with CBs. Lazio have made their interest known as the seek a replacement for Luiz Felipe (CB) but he is not their first choice - although their first choice may well be heading elsewhere. Napoli know that they may lose Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) in the summer and have an interest in the player. Southampton and Everton have both sent scouts to watch the player with Everton notifying Lille that they are very interested in taking the player in the summer – but there has been no “done deal” as many of the Everton fans think. Chelsea and Spurs have both looked and Chelsea fans have, like the Everton fans, convinced themselves a deal has already been done and that has led to abuse on the Chelsea site. In reality, he is not top of the list of replacements if one of the existing CBs leave (which is actually possible) although Chelsea have accepted that their two preferred choices are very probably not achievable - so they may push. Spurs have a bigger problem in that they have an aging defensive squad supplemented by players who are only perhaps borderline good enough. Spurs have other options they are looking at but could prioritise Magalhaes. Prior interest of PSG was thought to have gone but with their financial issues limiting their ability to spend without sales - but it may just be back.

As far as I know, this remains the case.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2020 20:39:02
cheers ed002 for the clarification, as with all transfer speculation there will always be fans hopeful that the deal is done prior to any official announcement.

{Ed002's Note - Well, Everton are keen so it could happen.}

17 Apr 2020 20:40:33
Brilliant ed, i did read the previous posts on this player, but then got some text's from various acquaintances saying it was done. I knew you guys would have a better understanding. Cheers for info.

17 Apr 2020 12:23:35
alrite everyone and eds aswell ed just quick question will the german bundesliga football resume in may seen that there fa was opimistic about it like just wondered on you're thoughts thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There has been a significant backlash in Germany to the proposals to start as soon as they can behind closed doors.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2020 14:13:25
thanks for that ed002 just want to see a football match if am honest mate even if it is behind closed doors if possible.

{Ed002's Note - You may need to wait until the start of next season in England for any behind closed doors games.}

17 Apr 2020 21:33:51
That's an intriguing choice of words Ed - can you offer any insight on the chances of this season being completed?

18 Apr 2020 00:51:18
I do not think there should be any behind closed doors games to finish the season or this is the end of putting supporters first.

We all know clubs no longer need the match going fan, as much as they need the tv revenue, but football without fans and atmosphere will soon see tv not as interested and Not offer mega millions, to an empty stadium.

Much as I dislike our neighbours across the Park, they should have the right to be able to attend the stadium, if and only when it is safe to do so, if it is not fit for fans to attend, then it needs putting back, or voided.

18 Apr 2020 09:56:44
Not intriguing from Ed002 at all, more like commonsense. This is an extremely aggressive and virulent disease. Even if deaths and cases begin to come down in the next few weeks, it will take months and months before we have knowledge that a grip has been reached. If the weak minded and idiots would accept social distancing and essential movement outside the home, then just perhaps this 'grip' on the disease could come sooner. Alas a minority believe the rules do not apply to them.

18 Apr 2020 13:22:28
Bct, I agree with you 100%. I don't see how there can be a return to any elite sport in this country even behind closed doors for the foreseeable future. To think that the premier League is more important than public health and those front line workers under so much pressure currently, is arrogant in the extreme! Intriguing from Ed002 as it's the first time I've seen him suggest that this season may be abandoned - before now the party line has always been the desire to complete the season no matter what.

{Ed002's Note - The party line remains to finish if at all possible. However more and more clubs are aware without some sort of end in sight they cannot move forward.}

20 Apr 2020 14:24:20
Shame sky and the media don't understand that instead they feed the frenzy that are Liverpool fans on a daily basis with pathetic stories of its due to start again on May 8th the fact Wimbledon at the end of June has been cancelled does not exist in their heads and if it does get voided the media will have a lot of explaining to do because we all know what Liverpool fans are like.

{Ed002's Note - There has been no sugegstion that the season should be voided. There is no plan to restart the season on May 8.}

20 Apr 2020 17:43:04
ED02 that's why I mentioned the media and sky are the worst on social media all pushing the storyline that football will be resumed on the 8th May and Liverpool fans are over every single post actually believing it my view is I think football won't be played for a long time as it's far too risky even just putting 22 players on the pitch then you have club staff ground staff stadium workers police first aiders broadcasters is asking for trouble safety first football second.

{Ed002's Note - I had no idea that Sky had suggested on social media that football will resume on May 8. The next review of the "lockdown" is May 7 and it is unlikely that any sort of sensible decision will open it up then. The Liverpool fans are primarily interested in the title which is understandable, and I have explained what they need to do to see if the other clubs will agree to that. A major con to the behind closed doors approach is fans turning up to the games and being outside - and in all honesty everyone is concerned about fans showing up to the game where Liverpool will win the championship. There is also a major issue that needs to be overcome before any such approach could be sanctioned in any case - a Pl game needs perhaps 400-500 support staff to happen before you think about staff as you say. Broadcasters, the Premier League all want a solution but reality is a paradigm shift away right now.}

20 Apr 2020 21:48:23
I can understand why they are worried about Liverpool fans turning up they have waited 30 years to win the league and they might have it taken away I will give you an example of a Liverpool fan (although it prob covers most fans) when Liverpool played host to Madrid I called my friend who works as a steward in the away end I told him he should call in sick and not goto work tonight I said Spain has a massive outbreak and Madrid is the epicenter he replied I wouldn't miss this game for anything even the fact his wife is in remission for cancer didn't matter to him and unfortunately there are a lot of fans who would just turn up keep safe all EDs.

11 Apr 2020 14:13:40
alrite eds just you're thoughts on us linked with jack grealish be great addition for us if we can get him just wondered are we interested in him thanks for reply.

{Ed025's Note - just paper talk i hope andy, he is a very good player and there are very srong links to us being interested but for me he does not have the right character, not only the breaking of the curfew but he has been involved in quite a few instances of unruly behaviour over his short career, how a player conducts himself on and off the field should be paramount and im afraid the likes of him and pickford are very immature and cant be trusted to represent the good name of our club mate..

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Apr 2020 15:44:41
thanks for reply ed025.

{Ed025's Note - no problem andy..

12 Apr 2020 19:26:23
Carrm down, carrm down, it is no very silly season. We will get associated with anyone and everyone as nothing can be done just total speculation and lazy journalism. We like Spurs have to watch the pennies if we move to Bramley Dock.
You want to start a rumour can we afford to move there if this continues towards 2021.

13 Apr 2020 10:11:38
And is he really better than what we have already. For me that is the additional criteria.

13 Apr 2020 12:20:41
yeah he is forgetting walcott.

13 Apr 2020 12:49:53
Jack Grealish is better than what we have, no debate on that, is he the right fit depends on how you look at it, we need players that will take us to another level not just be a typical Everton player that keeps us where we are.

{Ed002's Note - Sell Richarlison to raise the money to buy him? And why would he join?}

13 Apr 2020 16:15:58

13 Apr 2020 18:31:44
not putting the thought in ed002's words but just perhaps that was a gentle dig at the Grealish is better than what we have I. E. better than Richarlison really!

14 Apr 2020 11:45:43
Really Richarlison is same position as Grealish.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody has suggested that - but it is likely the only way Everton could get close to raising the money.}

14 Apr 2020 11:50:03
I think it may be suggesting that due to our current ffp plight, we have to sell before we can buy and Richarlison probably our most valuable player.
Sell him and we can put some money towards balancing the ffp issue and if any money left then possibly buy a cheaper player?

14 Apr 2020 16:32:30
Let's not forget we have a new shirt manafacturer and shirt sponsor for next season so that will help towards ffp.

{Ed002's Note - Not much.}

11 Apr 2020 08:37:01
It's in the news today that the premier league have (for obvious reasons) postponed an investigation into everton over the naming rights option agreement with USM, Ed002 is this investigation a routine carried by the PL on all deals between clubs and prospective commercial partners, or should we Evertonians be genuinely worried? Obviously we all know of the links between Moshiri and Usmanov, but if their is no actual proof on paper that Usmanov is funding everton then surely the deal will not be in contravention of the rules?

{Ed002's Note - No it would not normally be a problem but as we have discussed before, the issue is him effectively putting a deposit of £30M on future naming rights worth £20M a year. The questions that need to be answered is in regards to (a) if it is a "fair market value" and (b) can Usmanov could be considered independent of the club given he has joint business interests with Moshiri.

There is little doubt that the answer to both questions is no and this was an attempt to inject money in to the club to ease a very significant problem the club has with Financial Fair Play. The club will get a break over FFP and such issues and should take the time to get the finances straight - this effectively means significant sales to start bringing the debts down and the reduce the crippling wage bill. The use of very, very expensive advisors over purchases needs to end.

A further problem which the Everton fans seem to be ignoring is the growing debt with a third party that I have explained before. They have effectively mortgaged the the club. And of course the new debt associated with the stadium development will put the club in a very difficult position for years to come.}

11 Apr 2020 11:31:49
It’s not an investigation that just rubbish paper talk, as with all deals like this needs to be made sure it’s legit like Ed sats is it market value which is something that I don’t know how that works because value is only based on what one is willing to pay, if my house is worth 300k on market value but if someone offered 1million who can say No.

11 Apr 2020 14:40:47
Pulling numbers out of thin air leaves us open to scrutiny Trueblue mate . As the Premier League proves every time tv rights are up for sale sealed bids is the best way to go . Unlike an auction where you only need to make one more bid than your competitor to win, with sealed bids someone could potentially pay you that £1m for your £300k house .

11 Apr 2020 13:40:47
Yeah all deals need to be confirmed to be legit. so they investigate with aim of drawing a conclusion, if someone offered you 1 million pound for a house that was worth 300k then then it would raise serious questions wouldn't it?

11 Apr 2020 22:12:45
I am confused with the third party growing debt, is this money Everton have borrowed towards the new stadium.

Other than that, all other debts Everton had outstanding have been paid off, with Moshiri giving Everton an interest free loan to pay those debts off.

In theory Moshiri now owns those debts.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is debt borrowed with the club put up as collateral. Everton is losing money and in breach of FFP through mismanagement of the club.}

11 Apr 2020 22:51:54
This is what I cannot get my head round, other than future loans, For the new stadium, everything that was borrowed by Everton with the club as collateral has been cleared.

The majority shareholder had already pumped in £250m in the form of loans, which are treated as equity, to help fund transfers, new stadium plans and to tackle debt, for example.

But it has emerged that Moshiri injected an additional £50m during the last financial year, which covered a 13 month period from the end of May 2018 to the end of June 2019.

The billionaire has since topped that up by an extra £50m to bring his personal commitment to the club to eye-watering levels.

{Ed002's Note - No, Everton are calling down money from a third party - as I have explained over and over. The owner cannot simply pump money in to the club.}

12 Apr 2020 10:51:46
is the 3rd party usmanov?

{Ed002's Note - No of course not.}

12 Apr 2020 11:36:26
But then look at sandbanks house price jump over years that was not market value when it went boom.

11 Apr 2020 00:17:52
Hey everyone,

Quick question for Ed002, have any clubs taken serious interest in Tom Davies?

I think he's an quality little player.

{Ed002's Note - Not as far as I know,}
