Any substance to the rumour PSG trying to arrange a permanent deal for Moise Kean for £31m?


{Ed002's Note - As I explained there is no option and I am not aware of anything right now.}

1.) 03 Jan 2021 23:02:13
No worries Ed, thanks for the reply. Just saw it mentioned on sky sports website that they were looking to do a deal.

2.) 04 Jan 2021 00:49:09
They are looking to buy him now if he goes may open the door to sign zaha be good business if both happen.

3.) 04 Jan 2021 09:38:25
I'd be looking for more than 31 million though and we have chance of signing zaha even with Kean sale he cost to much fee and wages.

4.) 04 Jan 2021 12:05:16
If we get Zaha - would mean replacing entire midfield again in 3-4 years and no potential sell on
I think Zaha is no longer an option.

5.) 04 Jan 2021 13:39:05
We are always going to be replacing midfielders on a regular basis, because we don't buy young midfielders. So 3-4 years would be pretty good.



13 Oct 2020 12:16:02
Just read an article saying PSG have an option to buy Moise Kean for £18m at the end of his loan.
Seems like a small amount if he does actually achieve what everyone hoped for him and doesn't cover our original outlay on him.
Doesn't seem like something Brands would do.
Any substance to this or just nonsense reporting?


{Ed002's Note - There is an option at €20M at the end of this season and it far from covers the money Everton spent on the player. The lesson is (as explained when he joined for perhaps double his worth), don't let the owner make decisions on the advice of a third-party, don't sign players who don't want to join the club, and be careful of signing players who will be using the club as no more than a stepping stone.}

1.) 13 Oct 2020 13:29:31
Cheers Ed, appreciate the reply. Either way we’ve got our fingers burned on this deal, he excels we lose him for £18m he is poor and we’re stuck with him.

Thankfully it appears from most recent transfers that moshiri Is finally letting Brands do the job he is paid to do and not having third party advisor interference.

Expensive lesson for Moshiri - let’s hope he’s learned from it.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree - this summer looks far more encouraging.}

2.) 13 Oct 2020 13:50:31
Makes sense that he was an advisors signing and not a Brands signing. I suppose its quite difficult to try to stop an owner wanting to buy a specific player. let's hope he has learnt from his mistakes and let's the qualified people he brought in, do their jobs without the outside interference of advisors.

{Ed002's Note - I understand he has stepped back this summer - else I am sure Brands would need to consider his future.}

3.) 13 Oct 2020 15:55:05
As long as those up top learn from the deal, it’s onwards and upwards. No sense in keeping anyone at the club who doesn’t want to be there.

4.) 14 Oct 2020 09:45:37
On the topic of Brands’ future, isn't his contract up this Summer? Or is it different because he’s on the board?



30 Aug 2020 16:03:40
So apparently Allan included in Napoli squad today and his agent has come out and said no personal terms agreed.
Not looking like a straightforward transfer.


1.) 30 Aug 2020 17:06:01
Mate it's done and dusted terms agreed ages ago.

2.) 30 Aug 2020 18:32:15
Hope so Paul, but agent making some noises to the contrary regards personal terms.

Will wait till we see him in an Everton shirt before get too excited about him signing.

3.) 30 Aug 2020 20:38:20
Looks like the Agent is making noise as all that is left to agree on is the agents fee.

4.) 30 Aug 2020 23:36:31
Am sure Everton being Everton we will find a way to **** it up 👌🏼.

{Ed0666's Note - you mean buy signing joe Allan

5.) 31 Aug 2020 01:25:30
Yer an Chris brunt instead of James Rodriguez. ever the pessimist 👌.

6.) 31 Aug 2020 08:13:13
And there are reports saying he’s held his farewell lunch with players and staff, news outlets have got to get your attention and clicks somehow they’ll say what they want to get you looking.



30 Aug 2020 11:25:05
Ed was wondering if you were aware of how Everton are going to fund the supposed imminent arrivals of Allan and Rodriguez? As fans we’ve been under the impression money is tight so the arrival of these 2 would maybe suggest there’s a few departures lined up to balance the books, any ideas? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Everton are looking to sell players and critically reduce the crippling wage bill.}

1.) 30 Aug 2020 12:33:17
ED02 is there any interest in any of our players as I can't see any of them willing to take a wage cut to move which will make it very hard to sell them.

{Ed002's Note - I provided a detailed list - it should be easy to find if you search on something obscure like "Broadhead".}

2.) 30 Aug 2020 12:37:16
Sorry Ed - have you any idea on how they may actually achieve that? We’re aware of players not being part of the clubs plans going forward but is there any interest in these players or will we possibly have to move on one of our more saleable assets (Digne, Richarlison or Holgate) to achieve some sort of financial parity?

{Ed002's Note - Players will need to be sold - there is 5 weeks of Transfer Window left for this to happen.}

3.) 30 Aug 2020 12:49:37
Bringing in players and hoping we sell others seems like a risky strategy.

4.) 30 Aug 2020 14:20:06
Brands doesn’t strike me as a risk taker. But there has to be some risk in football to be fair. I’d imagine there’s a plan for departures.

5.) 31 Aug 2020 08:12:30
Toffee Ace - how can you justify that comment.
I’m not having a go but he signed iwobi, Delph, Bernard, Keane, to name a few.
I think we have been huge risk takers since he came - we nearly paid miles over the odds for Zaha also
Rodriguez is also a huge risk

I think Brands is a massive risk taker.
- I also think if his signings continue this year as last few years he will be gone.

6.) 31 Aug 2020 10:23:24
Apparently kean To juve swap with Ramsey don’t know how true where would Ramsey fit in if was true.

{Ed002's Note - Can he play LW?}



28 Aug 2020 14:17:45
Rumours Watford want a player on loan as part of the deal for doucore.
Is this an opportunity for Tom Davies?
Could be a win win for us for a change, get a player we want to improve the team and gives Tom the chance to get regular game time and see if he can improve which benefits us also.


{Ed002's Note - The mistake would be to let them have a player who the club want to move on. A youngster like TD, Braithwaite or Gibson would be ideal experience.}

1.) 28 Aug 2020 14:34:56
Agree Ed, hopefully the club offer them Davies or Gibson I loan.
Would like to keep Branthwaite as he showed at end of last season he can step up and provides us good cover in defence with Holgate, Keane and Mina. May not have to worry so much about buying a centre back if money is an issue by keeping him in first team squad for this season.

2.) 28 Aug 2020 15:21:37
Do you not think Branthwaite might be the better one to loan out to gain more experience on loan than as a backup this season?

3.) 28 Aug 2020 15:48:07
Agreed - Davies ideally, but either Gibson, Braithwaite or perhaps Ellis Simms. Get it done - Dacoure is exactly what we need in the middle of the park.

4.) 28 Aug 2020 15:55:23
To be fair to Gibson he hasn’t had the opportunity to play in the first team yet, apart from the half against Blackpool. Think it would be good for him to be kept in and around the first team squad now, give Carlo Tim to get a good look at him.
Would make more sense to use Branthwaite given his age and lack of experience. Lad shouldn’t be rushed into the team right now, needs time.
As for Tom, well that would either make him or break him, and if nothing else it would take him out the spotlight for a while. Makes perfect sense.
Agree not a player we are looking to sell, that is of no real benefit to us.

5.) 28 Aug 2020 17:40:22
I'd like them to have Gibson and Tom Davis. Gibson needs gametime and Davis needs to grow as a player, championship is ideal for both.

6.) 28 Aug 2020 17:54:16
Coukd we not offer them 2 players, Tom and Gibson or Braithwaite.
It woukd benefit us, might push the deal over the line, or would it be a case of wages for Watford, not wanting to pay both?

7.) 28 Aug 2020 19:20:08
Just give them Siggy and 10m, jobs a gooden.

One for the Ed’s.

With the international break coming up soon and one of the games being Columbia v Brazil.

The current travel restrictions are that need to isolate for 10 days if entering UK from Columbia.

Will clubs refuse to release players and if so what sanctions may occur?

I’ve never agreed with klopp before but on this i think he is spot on about club before country. Everton will also likely suffer if we send players as Rodriguez and Richarlison highly likely to be picked.

I’m not sure what the answer is but in the middle of a global C.V. and all these new variants of C.V. out there it seems crazy to be flying all over the world, not only are the players travelling being put at risk but there is the risk when they return they may put the rest of the club at risk.


{Ed002's Note - Clubs are required to release players if they are called up for competitive games (anything but friendlies). If they fail to do so it will be up to the Fifa Disciplinary Committee to decide what to do - at this time it would probably just be a warning to the clubs, but the players could potentially be suspended for club games.}

1.) 04 Mar 2021 11:28:52
Thanks for the reply Ed.
Will be interesting to see what clubs do if the 10 day isolation will be enforced. Getting to the crunch part of the season and any loss of players could be detrimental to finishing positions.

2.) 04 Mar 2021 13:42:12
Fifa and commonsense doesn't quite fit.

3.) 04 Mar 2021 14:43:49
Imagine if they ran football? Oh Shi.



20 Feb 2021 20:36:43
Made up with the result.
Great team performance but special mention to Davies and in particular Pickford who really outstanding.
I’ve been critical of both but tonight they were absolutely immense. Credit where credits due.
Fingers crossed we can keep putting in performances like this till the end of the season and who knows where we may end up, they’ve just as a team got to back up this performance and push on.




17 Feb 2021 23:39:04
We lost, but a better performance than against Fulham.

However we are really going to struggle to win any games if we don’t actually take a shot. Tonight 1 shot off target (Digne hitting post) and 1 on target (Off Richarlison knee) .

City had something like 8 off target and 7 on target.

Doesn’t matter how well we play if we don’t shoot we ain’t going to score and we’re not going to get many points.


1.) 18 Feb 2021 01:12:21
Better performance? . Mate we parked the bus from the get go. Completely devoid of any pace or intensity and that was the case vs Fulham as well.

2.) 18 Feb 2021 07:32:18
For me it wasn’t a better performance it was the same level

Terrible to watch again and he takes off again our best player going forward in Tom Davis and not sure from the start he didn’t just replace DCL with Josh King and keep Richarlison on the left side in which he accustomed too

Holgate is having a nightmare period such a shame Carlo let Braithwaite leave on loan a far better defender with real pace. Anyway Carlo is untouchable
Had my rant!

3.) 18 Feb 2021 07:36:05
Sorry Sir_Loin, matter of opinions and my opinion is the performance last night was a million times better than against Fulham. For a good 60 minutes we have City a game of it, we didn’t give Fulham a game of it for 1 minute.
Both performances resulted in no points but I was happier with the performance against City rather than the non-performance against Fulham.

4.) 18 Feb 2021 11:34:51
The team selection was a damage limitation setup. No way were we ever going to win the game, at times we had six and seven players across the back line.
We were, however, unlucky with their deflected first goal and Pickford should have saved the third so there were positives.



14 Feb 2021 20:54:54
Quite possibly the worst performance I’ve seen this season.
Not 1 Everton player should get their wage for that performance.
We are so jekyll and Hyde it’s unbelievable.
We’re outstanding going forward against spurs, tonight absolute shambles.


1.) 14 Feb 2021 20:57:02
The worst hands down I’d say. Shameful.



31 Jan 2021 20:43:45
Agree with all on here was a terrible performance against Newcastle. Not one player really did anything for us - Rodriguez did well considering he had lumps kicked out of him . Richarlison appears to want to shoot everytime rather than assist a player. DCL feeding off scraps.

Hoping we recruit tomorrow as need some different midfield and striker options - hopefully marcel got something lined up.

We seem to be shipping an awful lot of players out.
Simms, branthwaite, Bolasie, Lossl, Tosun, and strong rumours Gordon, Kenny and Bernard off on loan.

Unless the C.V. has really affected our finances and we're moving them on to put us on a stronger financial footing - however leaves the squad very light.

However on a positive note, the way results have gone this weekend if we win our games in hand we're back up to 4th.

What a crazy season this is.


1.) 31 Jan 2021 21:15:14
Leaving us light is not even close to describing the situation.

4 Centre backs, 6 Deep centre mids of varying descriptions. Then pretty much 1 for every other position. Bar the keeper and the less said about that the better.

Honestly I am normally pretty calm about these things, but this almost feels like self sabotage unless we are keeping the worlds greatest transfer secret up our sleeve.

If it’s to fill a gap and a player that is capable of helping us push for top 6 who cares about the age?
I’d take a one legged octogenarian at the minute if they were going to improve the midfield.

I know he’s done it before in the premier league, however no goals in 12 games for Bournemouth this season is somewhat worrying if it is true we are in for him.

I’m sure the club have got a plan with all these outgoings and be interesting to see what develops today.

Also reporting it’s cover for branthwaite as he’s gone on loan - that makes absolutely no sense though as why would you loan a player out and then buy a player to replace him?

What are the 2 disciplinary issues Ed? Would they be enough to put potential suitors off? Think we’ve got a decent bunch of players that seem to be playing together wouldn’t want to risk that with a player with disciplinary issues.


{Ed002's Note - One relates to a sending off, the other has seen him moved back to the reserves. Bayern are also unhappy with his attitude hence the reason for making him available.}

Probably a lot of it has to do with money. I imagine there’s far more money from staying in the premier league and finishing as high as possible compared to a decent cup run and winning the FA cup.

Spot on JB. I’m sure that’s exactly why there was a blanket ban on 3pm games being shown.
As soon as fans back in the stadiums, free to air games will stop.

Sorry Efcone - no way is he giving more than Rodriguez.

He may have played more games and showed some improvement however it’s not every game. He’s always got a tendency so pass backwards or sideways, and the number of times Ives seen him pointing to another player for the pass to go to them than him is ridiculous.

Rodriguez is pure class, got an amazing football brain and seems a few steps ahead of the play with his vision. He’s also got the ability to conjure something from nothing.

I’ll agree sigurdsson has improved - but was that really that hard based on his shucking lacklustre performances earlier in the season?

Would only offer a new contract if was sensible wages and not what he’s currently on.

Hoping he’s been keeping Rodriguez for the Chelsea game. They’re well organised and it will take a player if Rodriguez skill and vision to unlock their defence.
Hopefully Carlo puts out a strong team.
Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, digne.
Allan, Davies
Rodriguez, doucore
DCL and Richarlison

Wouldn’t want iwobi or Bernard starting based on the other nights performance.
Gone for Coleman over Holgate as think he offers a bit more protection down the right when Rodriguez in team.

May be there’ll be fans back in the ground by then and city will want to put on a show for their fans!
Hopefully we’ve secured whatever spot in the league it is before that game.

All about opinions nothing to do with a scapegoat.
Godfrey and Keane have been really good and seem to be improving game by game.
Holgate hasn’t been really good and at the minute doesn’t seem to be improving, if anything he’s playing worse than last year - I’m sure Carlo will improve him, but like with Tom Davies it won’t be a quick fix.

Wouldn’t say Holgate is currently the best option at rightback as surely Godfrey at rightback would be a better option than Holgate as Godfrey reads the game well and has bags of pace.
