Ed's any substance to the Bakayoko rumours? If you asked me to choose between him and Gnonto, I would prefer him.

Friend of mine works for/ with Psv and told me about him a year or so back. Lad is going to be mustard. One of them Tevez types that has the application to go with the talent.


{Ed002's Note - Johan Bakayoko (RW) Cost effective solution for PSG but may stuggle to be a starter. Napoli and Burnley have expressed an interest.}

1.) 16 Aug 2023 20:54:23
When you say cost effective Ed, is there a rough figure you can imagine securing him?

Appreciate the info as always!

{Ed002's Note - I don’t want to get in to the money as it causes issues.}

2.) 16 Aug 2023 21:38:33
No problem. Thanks again.

3.) 16 Aug 2023 22:13:08
I'd imagine a cost effective solution for PSG would either be at our up most limit or out of our reach. Saying that, we've not spent much yet.

Think I'd still prefer an out and out striker though.



06 Aug 2023 11:50:48
Any truth in us having interest in Solet Ed's?


{Ed002's Note - Oumar Solet (CB) Has struggled for consistency and strugled with nigling muscle injuries and RBS have added the bargain Douglas Mendes from a affiliate club to allow him to move on and kick-start what could be a promising career. if the right offer is made. Seen by Torino as a possible Per Schuurs replacement with Newcastle aslo declaring an interest. On the list if Crystal Palace were to lose Marc Guehi, but that seems to be more likely next summer. Everton and Rennes have spoken with his agents - who have strong ties with Torino.

1.) 06 Aug 2023 15:03:05
Thanks for the info Ed. Is Per Schuurs off to Spurs? If so, he is a great signing. I think his partner Buongiorno is decent as well.

{Ed002's Note - Perr Schuurs (CB) Only signed from Ajax last summer and an enquiry from Spurs was met with a not for sale - but a €40m plus offer would make them listen - a subsequent Spurs offer was well short of that but they could return after losing out on someone else. I doubt any club would value him at half that but Manchester United, and ten Hag knows him well, and Liverpool have sent scouts on a number of occasions. Napoli offer an option as they have him on their lengthy Kim replacement list. Informal offers from Napoli and Liverpool have been turned away and they have been told the asking price, but may well return with better offers. West Ham are keen but want to include a player to reduce the costs. Crystal Palace are concerned that they will lose Marc Guehi and have asked for talks with the club - but the price is seen as high. West Ham offer an unlikely solution.}



09 Jul 2023 15:32:17
Any truth in the Adam Wharton rumours Ed's? Fantastic young player and exactly who we should be signing.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know of any approach from Everton at this time and would not know who to ask. Newcastle want him as a squad player.}

1.) 09 Jul 2023 17:57:53
Any updates on players we have a genuine interest in?

{Ed002's Note - Not since lunchtime.}

2.) 09 Jul 2023 19:27:04
Thanks Ed, much appreciated.

Think it would do the lad a disservice to go an be a squad player somewhere. He looks a real talent from when I have seen him. My friend is a Rovers fan and has been singing his praises for the last year now.



03 Jun 2023 19:59:35
Ed's are we actually interested in Beto or just paper nonesense?

I have wanted the lad in for a while now but surely he goes to a better team than us.

If push came to shove between him and Gyokeres, I would prefer him. I imagine he is slightly more expensive?


{Ed002's Note - Beto (S) Only joined Udinese in July 2022. Unless a huge offer were made Udinese would not look to sell. Everton has an interest as do Napoli.}

1.) 03 Jun 2023 22:09:29
Cheers Ed. You said recently that Gyokeres is achievable. Is Beto as well or is he out of our price range?

{Ed002's Note - I would think something could be done.}

2.) 03 Jun 2023 23:37:25
Cheers Ed!



22 May 2023 23:01:58
Is Tom Cannon eligible for Sunday ?.


{Ed002's Note - He is not.}

1.) 24 May 2023 21:34:40
How about Bobby Ball?

2.) 25 May 2023 11:19:43
Fluffy, enough of our team our football impersonators, we don't need fulltime comedians as well!

DCL showing he cannot finish his dinner again against Rovers.

If he can't do it against fodder in a stadium with a few thousand, what do people expect against PL sides.

The lad is not a finisher, plain and simple.

Ps - Holgate is still Holgate. Pay him off and get him out. Same with Keane. Sooner we get rid of the last of the infection the better imo.


1.) 21 Jul 2024 09:44:29
I watched the extended highlights on YouTube and it's just like normal we couldn't finish. Apparently I was making noises while watching it according to the wife. My gasps of utter disbelief and disgust at some of the shocking shooting that was.
I'm well aware it's only a friendly and some players maybe lacking match fitness. We were 3-1 down at one stage but Chermiti to the rescue. He scored two nice goals and saved us from the brink of defeat. He looked the most potent threat up front which says a lot about our lack of attacking threat.

Beto and DCL both played both were guilty of woeful finishing (along with others) . If either one or both were to leave the club I don't think I'd miss them. Their goal contributions have been dire. DCL has had one good season under Ancelotti and that's it. Too injury prone and wants out by the sounds of it anyway. The whole team is just missing too many chances and we have no goalscoring midfielders either to chip in.

As for Mason Holgate, well he shouldn't be anywhere near the squad, simply not good enough. Granted he did score in the game but that short backpass (which gifted them a goal) showed that he's a liability in defence. Keane can be a decent player on times but he just has too many mistakes in him. I'm surprised he hasn't moved on yet although there's probably not another club dull enough to stump up the wages he's currently on.

2.) 21 Jul 2024 10:53:00
Nobody wants DCL. he has an over inflated opinion of what he's worth in wages and Everton have an over inflated view of his transfer value.

3.) 21 Jul 2024 11:10:48
Good header of a ball, but not great with the ball at his feet. Think the fact no "top" teams are interested in him should tell him he is better off where he is. Mind you then his agent won't be earning any bonuses.



16 Jul 2024 17:36:19
Just watched the latest training video. Chermiti looks like his confidence has grown massively and is mixing in a lot better. Perhaps we could see a much bigger role to play from him this season.

Tim looks like he is going to be a great piece of business.

The young right back looks very decent as well.


1.) 16 Jul 2024 19:59:10
I think Chermiti was starting to look like a decent player at the back end of last season. He’s got something about him. Could be a big season for him.

2.) 16 Jul 2024 21:54:30
Chermiti is hopeless.

3.) 16 Jul 2024 22:02:51
I hope he kicks on and can offer a plan B for us late in games.

4.) 17 Jul 2024 10:10:31
I thought he looked like an improved player towards the end of last season. Personally, I hope he has more game time this season.

5.) 18 Jul 2024 14:09:46
Definitely has something about him, ir remember.



04 Jul 2024 16:28:50
That Matt O'Riley for Celtic looks a very very tidy player.

His decision making for such a young lad is very impressive.

Send them Michael Keane, Holgate and £15 million.


1.) 04 Jul 2024 17:42:52
Send them maupay Rodgers wants a forward because Norwich rejected there offer for idah and Scotland is maupays level I reckon.

2.) 04 Jul 2024 20:59:14
How could they turn down Keane, Holgate, Maupay and £15 mill Ron hahah.

3.) 04 Jul 2024 21:12:20
Celtic are a well run club pal, they get top dollar for their big assets. O'Riley will go for 30mil, he has proven his worth in the UCL which is what shows his level, which is especially impressive for his age. He is on a long contract to.

{Ed025's Note - i like him too ST..

4.) 05 Jul 2024 01:56:27
Keane Maupay and Holgate would improve them as well, so it's a yes from me ha ha.

5.) 05 Jul 2024 08:02:32
I can assure you they wouldn't. Well run clubs who are financially prudent don't sign big wage (for spfl) players with no sell on value.

Just like we wouldn't do a swap with AWB and Lindelof for Branthwaite.



21 Jun 2024 18:25:04
Any idea on how much we are getting for young Dobbin?


1.) 21 Jun 2024 20:08:18
85m and they are getting 85m for Tim Iggy. That should sort both of our ffp problems out :)



19 Jun 2024 15:38:33
Always makes me laugh when a buying club think they can dictate the price of a player to a selling club.

Funnily enough, it always seems to be one of the "big clubs" that fall guilty of it.


1.) 19 Jun 2024 16:26:43
Same as that mate.

2.) 19 Jun 2024 18:58:25
Pay what he's worth or jog on. sick of us being ripped off in the transfer market.

3.) 19 Jun 2024 21:09:13
Exactly lads. “Man Utd tell Everton to get realistic or they will walk away”.

Walk on then you little rats. If you don’t feel as if the fee we are looking for represents value then look elsewhere. If they sign him, he strengthens them and dramatically weakens us.

Perhaps the most annoying thing is that clubs have no issue paying the same type of fees for players who have had one good season in farmers leagues e.g Portugal. Yet JB has been one of the best centre backs in the toughest league in the world. He is 21, big, strong, fast and both footed and they want to pay peanuts. It’s laughable.

4.) 19 Jun 2024 21:36:57
All true& I agree BlueNose. fear this is going to end with Jarrad playing up and forcing a move, leaving us not getting a our full valuation.

{Ed025's Note - apparently he really wants the move to United mate..

5.) 19 Jun 2024 21:48:45
If so Ed, he is going. Thought he would realistically go, as been said be some middle ground. £55million or so.

{Ed025's Note - i imagine it will end up around that figure Mocker..

6.) 19 Jun 2024 21:55:57
Good return and needed but yeah does feel like we are been short changed.

Like the lad we are linked to Greaves from Hull but big shoes to fill, think Tarks can get the best out of partner whoever he is, did it with Ben Mee at Burnley too.

7.) 19 Jun 2024 23:02:59
I love him lads and think he is top quality and he will only get better but if he wants to go, I can’t begrudge him of it.

Happy for him to go but if we don’t get full value for him, then I think it’s a disgrace and shows we are still a naive operator in the market, especially when you look at the fees paid for Fontana, cucurella, etc.

I would say to him, look, you can go if it is what you want but do you think you are one of the best young prospects in world football and when he turns around and says yes, I would say, ok, then we will get a few that is reflective of that or you aren’t going.

He is contracted for a few years yet. One more season with us bossing it is only going to make his options better. We brought him from Carlisle and took a chance on him when nobody else did. I think he owes us a decent fee if he wants to go. He is 21 and another season cutting his teeth will do him no harm. It is time to put the club first.

{Ed025's Note - he will be on far more lucrative wages with United than he will ever be with us BN, plus all the trappings of fame and sponsorship deals that comes with signing for the likes of them, its modern day football im afraid mate..

8.) 20 Jun 2024 06:12:54
Don’t forget Bluenose: we need the money from his sale. He won’t have much of a say in the price of the sale, just that he can be sold and that will help us.

9.) 20 Jun 2024 06:50:19
Yeah like him to stick with us BlueNose for another season or 2 but you can't blame the lad, really hope this doesn't play our in public. As for owing us, I get what you mean but he doesn't really does he it could be a 5000% profit on the lad after giving us a stellar season last season, only thing I begrudge is it's Utd and as rightly already stated the fees paid elsewhere for players of seemingly less standard with the fact Utd very publicly are known to have such vast debt along with us yet they will spend big again and in this case perhaps not the full market value, just doesn't seem right.

10.) 20 Jun 2024 12:27:53
Not a bad return considering a small section of fans were writing him off last season after his psv loan. Take the money and run.

11.) 20 Jun 2024 13:28:52
Remember if we end up with £55m, £8.25m will be going to Carlisle so we net £46.75m.
not a bad return although I'd love him to stay for one more season.

Ed, surely that would then make the benefits of having built a brand new stadium redundant.

We are a joke of a club.

I am not even upset by it anymore.

When I read the news, I sat back in my seat and laughed whilst shaking my head. It’s like an abusive relationship, in the end, it is just business as usual.


{Ed002's Note - No, it is a means to keep the club afloat and an attempt to avoid Administration.}

Their last poxy bid was insulting. They were made aware that it would take north of 60/ 70m for us to sell, so returning with another offer that still falls way short says to me that they are just trying to unsettle JB and get him to start pushing for the move.

A simple conversation should be had. Ask him if he wants to go. If he says yes, tell him that we want full value for him and won’t let him go for any less.

Ask him how highly he rates himself. No doubt he will say one of the best young cb’s in the league, if not thee best. Ask him if he feels he is better than Max Kilman who just went for 40m. No doubt he will laugh out loud and ask if we are joking and say he is worth double. Job done.

I would prefer Mengi myself. Should be getting him in over Greaves imo.

Played in the league. Big, strong and physical. Had a very good season for Luton.

He is playing in Austria so I don’t think it’s worth comparing the two in terms of goals scored.

Their record of actually making it onto the pitch is worth comparing though and it seems questionable to say the least.

Would much rather us get Che Adams on a free, now that his deal with Wolves looks to have fell through.

41 goals in 164 games for some very poor Southampton teams. Knows the league. Works hard for the shirt. Robust and can play as a target man or up top in a 2.

Not a fantastic player by any means but makes perfect sense to me for what we need and where we are at.

His record to get on the pitch seems as bad as DCL’s, so it must be his replacement. Like for like indeed.

Fair assessment Ace.

I think now that there seems to be a bit more flexibility with incomings and outgoings we will see a different dynamic to the side and Dyche can put his stamp on it.

I remember his earlier Burnley sides having a fair bit about them tbh. Certainly more than what we have had to watch recently.

We have already added a midfield ball carrier in young Tim. Ndiaye can carrry it well as well and looks to be a decent dribbler. If links with this Philogene are accurate, I think we will be pleasantly surprised at how we approach games next season.

Not fussed by this at all. Makes sense from a few perspective but he couldn’t even get into West Ham’s side and they have not been particularly blessed in the fullback positions in recent seasons.

Coufal and Cresswell are both old and he couldn’t displace them.

Whilst I agree that we shouldn’t have anyone at the club who doesn’t want to play for us, I don’t understand what you mean by saying JB has only had one good season for us? That’s not down to him.

He played a handful of games for us and bagged at Stamford Bridge and was then sent out on loan to Psv who wanted to keep him.

He then came back and was unused at the start of the season even though Keane was playing abysmally as per usual. When he finally got in, he stayed in the side and put in a brilliant season at such a young age.

The lad has absolutely everything as a centre back and his scope for improvement is scary when you consider the fact he came through late at Carlisle, so will not have had anywhere near the same schooling/ coaching as a young lad at a PL team.

He is 10 times more important to us than DCL or Onana and if he stays and performs to the same level, which I see no reason why he won’t, we can then genuinely ask for £100m + for the lad.

Tbh Ed, I was shocked when Villa let him go for so cheap to Hull. Although I do believe the included a buy-back clause for £15 million, however, it can only be activated if they are in the same division.

He was coming through at the same time as the lad Chelsea got, not even going to attempt to spell his name, so I will call him Chuck for short. I remember watching him in a cup game and he looked like he had a bit about him.

If we can add him or someone like him, along with Ndiaye, we might actually have some players who can carry the ball and take a man on, something that feels like I haven’t seen for a lifetime mate.
