Club announcement Kean signs 5 year deal.

Big C

1.) 04 Aug 2019 13:08:21
I think our best signing by far is Marcel Brands. The quality of player we are now looking to sign is of a better calibre than what Steve Walsh would usually get. Still not sure how to pronounce Moise or Gbamin yet. Let's hope they can do a job for us. I wonder who else the club are trying to sign? It's a good window for us so far in my opinion.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 13:36:42
Absolutely Howie mate and Moise has no buy back clause.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 14:26:42
100% Howie the clubs best signing for year Marcel Brands hasn’t improved our club since he’s been here hope he’s continues to do that for a long time. Just hope our fans give his ideas and silvas time
And not jump on them when. Signing takes time to adjust to the PL and The North West.



29 Jul 2019 22:45:39
I've just read that Zaha and Moise Kean are now following each other on Instagram, don't know what that means if anything I just about cope with posting on here

Kean’s Brother also followed the official Everton and a Fan channel. Someone posted a screenshot asking him if he was signing and he replied with a blue heart. Sounds promising!

{Ed0333's Note - you sure it wasn’t Robbie Keanes brother mate?

If it falls through our deals, Dark clouds be on quicker than a Vicar leaving a brothal playing his Smiths collection as he types.

on ssn that PSG have agreed fee of £28m for Gana

Also on sport radio show that rumoured we are ready to make a significant bid for Zaha

Feels like agent talk to force Arsenal’s hand. No doubt he’d improve us, just not convinced his heart would be in it.

{Ed002's Note - What on earth is "agent talk".}

2.) 25 Jul 2019 13:56:28
When agents or ‘sources close to the player’ share info with the press with the intention of pressing for a move for their player or getting a new contract.

{Ed002's Note - No, that doesn't happen.}

3.) 25 Jul 2019 15:00:27
Thats exactly what Mino Raiola does, who is the biggest football agent.

{Ed002's Note - No, he doesn't.}

4.) 25 Jul 2019 16:25:00
We may have to agree to disagree on this one Ed.

5.) 25 Jul 2019 17:02:27
He does, so he can play teams off each other to get the biggest commission for himself.

6.) 25 Jul 2019 18:58:16
Must admit tho ed. Bit naive on this one. For years people have leaked stories to the press to manipulate situations to their benefit, clubs and players and agents all do it. Maybe not obviously but definitely behind scenes.

{Ed002's Note - Really, I am naive about it.}



14 Jul 2019 15:56:45
Just read a report stating we have bid 30m for Moise Keane from Juventus. In the last year of his contract, Juve have reportedly offered him 2.5m per year contract to stay but is meeting with his agent, Minola Raiola, next week.

Big C

1.) 14 Jul 2019 22:15:23
From what i've seen, brands is trying to pay a bigger upfront fee, in the region of $40,000,000. this will be to stop a percentage of the sell on fee going to juventus, which if he is half as good as everyone is saying will be a masterstroke, if he does a Jansen at spurs and flops, money down the drain.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 08:02:16
It's the same with any player KyleEFC. All signings have risks. Let's hope that if he arrived that he hits the ground running and scores the goals we need.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 10:53:56
Hi all thing that winds me up about transfer window if we linked to a player we want why don’t we make a realistic move for him and not risk of losing him to another team Costa we interested in but have compaction bloody go sign him then.

4.) 15 Jul 2019 13:57:48
White - unfortunately us as fans have no idea who we are genuinely interested in signing. Most of the stuff we read is probably made up to sell newspapers and get website visits.
It is a frustrating time of the year as I’m sure we’ve all got ideas of players we’d like to sign (Zouma, Pepe and Neres for me) but until a player signs we’ve just got to go with the flow and trust Brands and Marcel to do the business, which is easier said than done as I’m continually checking the rumours.

5.) 15 Jul 2019 16:11:40
Sounds very simple to say if we want him just go and sign him.
Unfortunately, unless you are one of the real top clubs, then likely players will want to hang on to see if any better options whether that be money, Europa League, CL.
I'm sure the club would love to have everyone signed and on the pre-season trip, but that just isn't reality.

There is a reason why market goes mad before the close of the window and a large part is due to the fact that players / agents have assessed their options and given up waiting for better offers.

Trust in Marcel.

6.) 15 Jul 2019 17:30:41
Very hard for club to attract the top players but I do think the closer the stadium becomes a reality then this will help us but it’s 3 years away and from a players point of view there is nothing to see and likely not even play in it, can't wait for it to get started.



31 May 2019 12:30:42
SSN transfer news reporting Hirving Lozano PSV has said its time to take the next step in his career, what do the Ed’s think the chances he could come to us with the Brands connection and if so how do you rate him and see him fitting in?
Cheers Ed’s
Big C.

{Ed001's Note - I can't tell chances, but Everton are interested.}

1.) 31 May 2019 18:46:18
He's said pretty clearly that he wants Champion's League football, unfortunately. Barca, Napoli, and United are also interested and the first two have CL football to offer. The Brands connection is our best hope for changing his mind and landing the player, but it's a small one. If we're willing to wait, maybe we can get him via our tried and true strategy of waiting for him to flounder at Barcelona and then swooping. :) The more Barcelona rejects we can get the better, imho.

2.) 01 Jun 2019 13:50:29
Barcelona certainly a step up from Man U.

Well, I've just been having a read of the comments. I expected the line up we had, with maybe the exception of Schneiderlin thought maybe Tom Davies, but then you have to think Schneids more experience less likely to be rash were maybe Marco's thoughts. You can't be right all the time!
So how do you start, with what you know,
DCL played the majority of pre season, Tosun just come back from injury and has played about 1/ 2 a game, Moise arrived this week no pre season with us and you need to ease him in, so DCL is the obvious choice coupled with he is one of our squad that isn't in the sale window and he is a young man that needs to be managed.
Do you crush his confidence by dropping him so you can play an untested, untried 19 year old in the premier league who may also not speak English very well.
No you play safe with what you know and try not to lose your first game, which is away from home and hope that your team that finished strong last season gets the win.
Let's get a bit of the season under our belts and encourage the squad and let the new lads settle in .
Now everyone calm down, wind your necks in and cheer the f. k up, there used to be an old saying win all your home games and draw all you away games and you'll win the league, I know that's not true these days but you would have 78 points come May, which if offered I'd take right now.
COYB and confusion to the other lot

1.) 11 Aug 2019 15:59:27
Great post and I agree.
Some may not think this of me but what I say here is not what I say at the match. If DCL plays Saturday I will cheer him and hope he does well but afterwards will let rip here there is a time and place for everything, now let's beat Watford.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 18:16:15
I agree DC, if you said at the match what you say here you'd most likely be run out of Goodison.
Personally I like to stay consistent with my views rather than change them depending on personnel.

3.) 11 Aug 2019 19:21:53
As much as I like a healthy debate and often do disagree with DC. I have to say I agree with him about DCL. I am desperate for the lad to do well, but unless his movement in the box improves he won’t, and I could see him losing his place and not getting it back.

4.) 11 Aug 2019 21:28:07
Agree with that dark clouds, dirty washing and all that.

5.) 11 Aug 2019 22:41:58
He has had well over two seasons, how long do you give a player and make exceptions like Calvert is still young, he holds the ball up well.

Two things you need from a striker is scoring and running and creating space, Calvert has neither at the moment.

If we are going for just one striker then Lewin is not the striker, however if we play two forwards then who knows.

At this moment in time, Silva is playing one striker, we either go 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 to include another striker, or we drop Calvert.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 02:26:33
DCL is struggling. We all know that.

Silva can chuck him on the scrap heap like some of the posters on here or he can try and give him some confidence by giving him the number 9 shirt and keep working on him. I think he was right not to immediately replace him with Kean who had only been with the team a couple of days due to the inordinately long amount of time it took to do his paperwork and medical.
Having said that I am also sure he is telling DCL he needs to score more if he is to keep his place. He is not too young anymore. Kean is young and scores goals, Rooney did, Rashford (same age) is doing it. Lots of young players are or have done it.

I think Kean will get the nod this Saturday but please get off DCL's back - he is working his socks off and wants to score more than we want him to

Just want to remind everyone Ducksflysouth is the same person as Billscrocodiletears who said the other day he was leaving the site for a while

Happy to see him now posting as DFS as we need differing views but wish he was open that he is BCT posting as another user.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 02:32:00
Sounds like DC suffers from multiple personality disorder. Life and soul of the party at the match supporting his team to the hilt but as soon as the final whistle blows turns into a miserable old git and anything positive about the team sticks in his throat and chokes him

There are pills you can take DC.

8.) 12 Aug 2019 08:31:35
Whilst I don't agree with a lot of what DC says. If he can't vent his frustrations on a Banter forum, where is he supposed to vent them?

He goes to matches, supports his team, and when he feels like they are not performing he comes here to vent. Fine by me.

My only wish is that he and others give the season a chance before getting to upset! But if they don't want to wait, its still up to them at the end of the day.

9.) 12 Aug 2019 08:56:48
Well said EFCONE. Think sometimes comments I and other 'miserable sods' post, are lost in translation. As most others I go to all home games. Yes I get frustrated even annoyed, yes I disagree with Silva's appointment, but at the game you will not hear me booing or criticising, staff or team.

10.) 12 Aug 2019 20:51:45
I think we will see DCL phased out slowly and once Keane is up to speed will be out starter no9.

DCL will still have his games to play like City and Liverpool away when we need someone to hassle the defenders.

Going back to the top of this post how does Mr Moshiri wanting to make a marquee signing and us having no money to spend work in any way at all.
Ignore the money what comes in what goes out as Ed 2 so often explains it’s not simple so forget about it.

If “ in silva and brands we trust” stand for anything, then we need to stand by that statement and let them get on with it. Get excited by links to various players by all means but don’t be surprised when we get someone completely from left field and I don’t mean a winger.

I think Tom Davies is just turned 20 and is a different midfielder to both JP and Andre Gomes, I know at age19 he broke into the first team and scored a goal against city, I know Silva made him Captain of our club, I know that I will never get to pick the first team of our great club and thankfully neither will you, your thought process is devisive bordering on Machiavellian. Is Tom Davies the next victim of the boo boys someone to blame another local lad made good, Barclay, Osman, Hibbert. It puzzles me why people feel it necessary to point a finger and find someone to single out as not good enough.
I think if you haven’t got something nice to say about someone you should remain quiet, I also think that if you think you can read the mind of someone from them saying one thing and you spinning a different meaning out of moonbeams to justify your own dislikes is slightly worrying and I suggest you go and get a check up from the neck up, Mind you that’s only my opinion based on what you wrote?!?! What’s everyone else think?, and to be honest I don’t know you, I’ve never met you and I’m not sure I want to, and given the choice I’d play Tom alongside JP as they appear to be the only two fit midfielders we have . Get behind the squad or get off the bus .

I remember the thing that went round “water covers 75% of the earths surface James McCarthy covers the rest”, he was amazing with him and Gareth Barry in the middle we looked solid, hopefully he can find his form again after that nasty leg brake, just not on 10/ 8/ 19, wish him all the best.
