Reported that Everton reps are in Barcelona to finalise a deal for Gomes, and personal terms have already been agreed

Imagine this will get done by Monday.


1.) 15 Jun 2019 22:40:26
Seems pretty certain now. Such an important player for us.

Hi Eds,

Any idea on the teams interested in Niasse, and whether anyone has made a move to sign him?

{Ed025's Note - as far as i know blu99 we are finding it hard to offload him mate, that could easily change when holidays are over and clubs start looking for new players but at the moment there is zilch im afraid..


1.) 11 Jun 2019 15:03:02
Only to be expected Ed. I think we need to accept we will take a massive loss on him.

{Ed025's Note - i think your right mate...unfortunately..


2.) 11 Jun 2019 18:11:41
I thought there was some interest out in Turkey or round that way where he had played in the past.

{Ed025's Note - turkey being the operative word ST.. :)


3.) 11 Jun 2019 18:44:15
I think the moving of players on is going to be marcels toughest task this summer and not the recruitment.
I can’t see any of the names mentioned as possibly leaving (Tosun, Mirallas, Niasse, bolasie etc. ) as actually making a return on the investment in them, Lookman may be the exception, but the others I’m sure will be sold for far less than we paid.
Hopefully though it’s a start of a new era with the appointment of Marcel and we will demonstrate a sensible recruitment policy with no panic buys or paying big prices for unproven players, things we as a club seem to have lacked in previous transfer windows.


4.) 11 Jun 2019 22:05:13
Correct there will be no return on investment on those 4 mentioned but that’s not really what’s important here
Bolasie is reportedly costing £75k per week so that’s just shy of £4m a season 😬
Mirralas was £70k so he’s a bit over £3.5m per season
Sandro is £3.3m per year
Tosun £3.1m
Niasse £2.8m
Martina £1.8m
Besic £1.5m
Garbutt £1.5m
Vlasic £1.3m (might squeeze out a profit)
Galloway £1.2m
That’s £24m of salaries on players nowhere near the first team apart from Tosun but it seems he’s not fancied by Silva
It’s not ideal but I would take losses on these to move the recruitment forward and Brands plan does seem to be younger talent that would have a resale value.


5.) 11 Jun 2019 22:21:48
Just goes to show the recruitment is miles better now.
Imagine our return on investment if we sold Bernard, Ricky or Digne now.


6.) 11 Jun 2019 23:19:24
They are paid too much we will have to take losses on all of them and probably part pay wages. The crazy spending in the passed is costing us now, we must learn from it.


7.) 12 Jun 2019 00:21:24
Wherever Niasse ends up the guy gave everything for Everton, disgusting how he was treated by ofm, I wish him the best of luck, just did not work out for him, but cannot fault his effort and humanity towards Everton Football Club.


8.) 12 Jun 2019 07:12:47
A mate of mine saw bolasie at the championship play off final (he’s a blue but just got a ticket for it) and bolasie told him that he’s not going anywhere, and will see his contract out. You can see that being the case with all of them.


9.) 12 Jun 2019 12:14:05
Bluetron- shame to hear that but can see where he’s coming from.
Stay with us and get paid? £75k per week or move somewhere else where probably wouldn’t get anywhere near that amount per week.
If you’re just in it for the money it’s a no brainier to stay, if you want to play games and try to get picked for national team then the pay cut and a move would be the option.
Not sure how many of the players we’re looking to move on sit in the later category.
We’re paying for our previous poor recruitment policy. Will be a fair few seasons before this is rectified but confident Brands will be up to this challenge.

Hi Eds,

Jonas Lossl is rumoured to join us on a free transfer, can you see this happening? Don't know much about him but doubt it would be bad for a backup keeper.

{Ed002's Note - I would need to check - I knew of interest from France.}


1.) 17 May 2019 18:31:08
I saw this myself earlier. No thanks, he's been bloody awful for Huddersfield this season. Surely a better keeper is needed? I'd rather stick with Stekelenburg as back up or promote Virginia myself.


 

 

10 May 2019 16:45:53
Hi Eds,

Any truth in Spurs beating us to sign Gomes? Will be gutted if he doesn't join after the performances he's put in this season.

{Ed002's Note - There is no secret that there are a number of sides interested in Gomes - and Spurs has been interest for a long time as has previously been explained. Again, part of the issue that Everton has, probably the largest part, is that they are selling a project (or dream if you will) as they have no European football, nor any clear sight of European football. Everton can easily get stung to pay more wages to compensate - but then the plan needs to sell. That is the reality of it.}


1.) 10 May 2019 22:22:28
You can’t blame him if he goes to spurs CL final, CL next season and the pull of living in London. He’s done great for us this season and even made a effort with the fans and the charity events etc. Good professional and a role model for the younger players.


2.) 12 May 2019 10:23:53
Pochettino has said that he will evaluate his future after the final. How many players who would consider going to Spurs now have second thoughts after comments like that? Might be easier selling a project when the manager has every intention of staying than a club who currently have CL but not the manager who got them there.


3.) 13 May 2019 14:28:38
Perfectly put ed. I'm Hoping his time at Everton can help pursaude him. He has been happy but he may feel he needs t9 be in a champions league team now, which would be understandable considering the short nature of being a footballer and the uncertainty of outcomes. All we can do is hope 🤞.


4.) 13 May 2019 15:26:35
Thanks Ed

Doesn't bode well for us, just need to have faith that we have a contingency plan in the event he doesn't sign!

{Ed002's Note - There is a Plan B, but I suspect looking for other options.}

Lookman to Southampton being rumoured

Can't see it happening myself but seems to be strong interest, although could just be because he played under their current manager at Leipzig

Wouldn't mind if it was just a loan but even then he is miles better than Walcott so he needs to stay.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 19:26:48
Why would we sell lookman to Southampton lookman deserves more game time the problem is people focus on what he dosent do well instead of focusing on his good quality the lads young and will make mistakes and drift out of games but on other occasions he could change a game. Look at the how experineced Theo is but he gose missing for large parts of the games. I say give lookman an extended run of games then see how he dose.

Hi Eds,

Any idea if Gueye will leave this window? From what the media have said it looks like he is keen to move to PSG (who wouldn't)

This does worry me as we will desperately need a replacement, and I know there's interest in Doucoure but they aren't particularly the same type of player

I have seen links to Wilmar Barrios and Thiago Mendes, are they players we are keen on/ in talks with? Can't imagine we would sanction a sale for Gueye if a replacement wasn't readied.

{Ed025's Note - it does look like we may lose him blu and if we do we need a replacement in, who that will be i would be guessing but we have known this for a while so there should be someone lined up mate..


1.) 10 Jan 2019 20:46:07
Barrios will add that bit of steel we need in front of back 4.


2.) 10 Jan 2019 23:35:18
Wonder whether Baines could convert like lahm did? Could offer a temporary solution if we need to wait until the summer.


3.) 11 Jan 2019 00:34:10
Doucoure is available and would be the man for me. He would offer the attacking threat that Gueye never could and is a decent age also.


4.) 11 Jan 2019 07:20:42
We have a ready made replacement for Gueye in front of back four or even a partner should he stay. Note the runs Zouma makes forward, it is no coincidence. Chelsea have played him in front of the back four and it shows.


5.) 11 Jan 2019 10:56:31
Baines and Zouma are obvious possibilities. but isn't McCarthy fit again? didn't he play that role when Barry was with us?


6.) 11 Jan 2019 13:48:22
He did degsyp and could do it again. Needs an iron hand though to prevent him galloping off and around although not the Davis headless chicken game.


7.) 11 Jan 2019 19:01:16
Davies has ability DFS he just needs to listen to his coaches. If you remember the goal he got against Man City when he first burst onto the scene, he was 18? Ok he is 21 now and does as you say run around a bit too much, but I thought Gomez would be able to help him positionally. we will have to wait and see. In theory Davies could do the holding midfielder. He is strong, good engine, fast enough and can tackle a bit. With good coaching over say 2 seasons he would be an excellent holding midfielder. if he listens.

{Ed025's Note - hes a bit lightweight for me degsy and gives the ball away too much, im not giving up in him just yet but its time for him to step up to the plate mate..


 

 

21 Jul 2018 09:29:17
Mina's agent has said he has spoken to Brands but he really wants to play for Barca, can't blame him that's everyone's dream!

I do believe however that they will allow him to go so should open the door for us to sign him

Richarlison looks like it will get done before Monday which is great news, I thought he would be a player who would go to Spurs

We've placed a bid for Digne, who knows if he even wants to join! And same with Malcom, imagine Roma is a more attractive option for him

I still think we need a right winger as Richarlison would play on the left, and Walcott is made of glass. Sandro is not good enough to play as a winger.


1.) 21 Jul 2018 13:21:31
Walcott is more than capable for me.


 

 

20 Jul 2018 07:32:20
Hi Eds,

New to the website so forgive me if I'm not asking this in the right way! Is there any news on Malcom? I understand we enquired with his agent but now it seems as though Roma will be using the Alisson money to buy him

Leaves me a bit worried as we still haven't made a signing, and Malcom would be our best player pretty much.

{Ed025's Note - malcom would be great blu but it looks like he is off to roma mate, we will do some business next week though mate..


1.) 20 Jul 2018 18:06:26
Welcome Blu. You'll fit right in here if your worried about the lack of signings.
😉.


2.) 20 Jul 2018 18:15:20
seen rumours going around that Lookman hadn't travelled to Portugal ed. Please settle my nerves and tell me it's not true mat.

{Ed025's Note - im trying to find out joe but no luck yet mate, i hope he is part of the plans but rumblings suggest he is not..


3.) 20 Jul 2018 18:35:48
I hope he is too, but if the lad’s not fully committed, let’s get as much as we can for him and move on. Cheeky swap with Zaha maybe 😉.


4.) 20 Jul 2018 19:07:54
Thanks Smit, been checking here quite a lot throughout the window, little bit at ease now it seems we're finally edging towards signings!


5.) 20 Jul 2018 19:18:42
Read somewhere (echo maybe) that lookman got a knock in Austria so maybe not travelled to get him fit for league.


6.) 20 Jul 2018 19:25:16
I would be off work ill for weeks if we swapped lookman in part deal for zaha.


7.) 20 Jul 2018 19:37:37
I love the lad but if we sell him and buy Richalison I'm thinking that's an improvement for our team.


8.) 20 Jul 2018 19:46:05
The one to ask is ed002! But please beware this ed does not suffer fools. Hmm!


9.) 20 Jul 2018 18:27:30
Gutted if so, thanks for the effort mate. Keep us updated.

{Ed025's Note - i will be too joe as i see him having a very bright future mate, lets just hope its with us..

Hi Ed,

I know this isn't strictly Everton related but which teams are interested in Lo Celso?

{Ed002's Note - Giovani Lo Celso (CM) was a Plan B to AG for Everton but in reality he could be more expensive than him after Real Betis signed him and are looking to treble their money (in reality they might be able to double it) - very unlikely; Spurs have a sustained interest in the player; he is one of two players Manchester City are considering as better priced and more achievable options to previous targets; Atletico Madrid see him as an option to a player they may have lost out on.}

Looks like Spurs have made a bid for Lo Celso, I would imagine Gomes will come to us now.

{Ed002's Note - There is a lot of interest in Lo Celso.
