This time Monday or Tuesday was our best window EVER and Brands was about to get knighted. Yes, its dissaponiting not to have signed a CB and rw, but still an amazing window. The rw can still be interchange, using bernard and even Walcott, and the cb we have Keane, Mina and backups holgate and gbamin. I'd rather risk it rather than panic on 25m Rojos and 100m Zaha.

May take some luck staying injury free, but we can reassess and go for players we want for non desperate prices again in January if needed.

I don't think anyone wanted rojo, I certainly didn't. And since when was Zaha 100mil?

I do think we have done well this window but I also think the squad is weaker than last season.

Gana gone, yes we have replaced him but with Delph on the decline and an untested gbamin. Zouma gone and no one in. A right back on loan who I assume is just back up? I thought Coleman was great the back end of last year. And an untested teenage striker and possibly iwobi.

I am not slating MB or MS at all I think they have done a great job at addressing some issues with the squad. I just think with Zouma gone and no replacement it leaves a massive hole in the team and a lot of pressure for mina to perform.

{Ed025's Note - yeah mina has to step up chris..

Exactly Chris. No quality Centre back ruins the window in my opinion. I'm worried now.

But when we signed Mina last year everyone was calling it another Brands masterstroke. Injuries and Zouma kept him out last year. Now we'll see how good he really is, and if he's bad we can look elsewhere in 4 months, not panic and buy Rojo for 25m.
Most foreigner youngsters are untested when coming here. And we couldn't get a young right back to replace Coleman so replaced him on a year loan with a world cup winning international. Phenomenal young striker signed. A lot of older and not needed players shipped out. Unsure on Iwobi if it goes through, but give him a chance (possibly a panic buy) but I think an amazing window. Supposedly we offered 65m plus Tosun (20m) and McCarthy (10m) and palace wanted 100m. Too much in my opinion. Only downside for me was waiting too long for Zouma, where to be fair Chelsea said all along no. But overall hats of to everyone at Everton who's played their part in it. Roll on Saturday.

I wouldn't say it ruined it BT but it is a worry. I hope Mina can step up.
