Dcl is to join Newcastle for £25 million on £125k per week, deal to be announced on 1st June, any truth?


{Ed025's Note - just speculation at the moment OD..

1.) 24 May 2024 19:11:05
Wouldn't surprise me if he went. Personally I think he'd be a massive loss and we'd really struggle to find a player that fits the system the way he does.

{Ed025's Note - im with you Chris..

2.) 24 May 2024 19:02:11
Not sure how I feel about that, seems low knowing what he is capable of and how valuable he is to our set up and limited striker options, but then if he breaks down again could be another 6months out.

Know he is 32 but with or without Dom leaving I'd like us to go in for Callum Wilson, apparently wants out, experience head and knows where the net is, still got a season or 2 left him in in top flight til hopefully our finances get sorted, ideally try if Dom does go for a season loan.

3.) 24 May 2024 19:15:26
we would want more than £25M.

4.) 24 May 2024 20:02:08
Is DCL going to replace isak because they want £200 Million for him apparently?

5.) 24 May 2024 20:09:21
He didn’t play much last season but I wouldn’t want to see him go.

6.) 24 May 2024 21:05:04
Any chance of Callum Wilson in return. Wishful thinking I know.

7.) 24 May 2024 21:16:22
Problem is he’s in last year of his contract so very little chance we’ll get a massive fee for him and £25m is probably a decent price based on this.

Would rather us keep him as he can score goals and we’ve stuck with him through all his injuries and would hate to see him banging in goals for another team in the premier league.

Hopefully he signs a new contract and then if decides to leave we can ask for a bigger price - however got a feeling he’ll ask to leave as can’t be fun playing for us at the moment and he’s also had some considerable stick from some of the fan base.

8.) 24 May 2024 22:18:20
How can we lose him for this after paying £30m for Beto! Typical Everton Beto might be as bad as tosun and straq and yet we are going to lose the only decent striker we have had in years for next to nothing. It never rains it pours with Everton!

{Ed025's Note - nail on the head there Chris mate..

9.) 24 May 2024 22:50:46
I'm surprised that the rumour fee is as high. What is it 52 goals in 6 years? Last year of contract and scored something like 10 in last 2 seasons? If all true I think he'd be desperate to get into a club like Newcastle and the fee seems pretty good to me. I'd bite their hand off.

10.) 25 May 2024 00:10:34
FBS on the money again.

Not sure what this "system" is, he is perfect for either if I am honest.

11.) 25 May 2024 00:16:10
Yes I would bite their hand off, I just can't see what you all see in him, he is finished.

12.) 25 May 2024 07:11:43
I'm a big fan of DCL but his record is t that great, he's living off one season, 25 million take it, he may get injured and be out most of the season you just never no with him.

13.) 25 May 2024 08:32:59
I'd rather loose dcl than Braithwaite so let him go didn't work out to well for big dunk did it couldn't wait to get back to the famous efc.

14.) 25 May 2024 10:27:12
Also how many goals did he score compared to beto and people are skating him in his first season, he may look like a big lump but he sat on the bench most of the time, beto could still be the man to lead the line and we also have the young lad can't spell his name, he's had a year now and so knows what to expect, I have high Hope's for him, we need fire power from other areas not just the strikers.

15.) 25 May 2024 12:38:31
I agree with dan and fbs posts as dan mentioned he is in his last year of his contract so dcl is going to look for 1 last pay rise i would be gutted if he went but you can't blame anyone for wanting to leave in our current situation and as fc pointed out aswell its going to be difficult to find a replacement to fit our system i'm just hoping dyche an thelwell can get our recruitment right cause with leicester back in prem and Leeds or Southampton we need many points as possible next season to stay in league.

16.) 27 May 2024 16:35:15
Let him go by all means but we need to replace him with someone who can hold the ball up just as well and can chip in with a few goals here and there. Beto doesn't look like he's the mam and wants out, apparently. So, the question is who do we bring in that would be both effective and in our price range?

Can I ask ed02 about this strategy Newcastle, Everton, villa and Chelsea are deploying in overpaying for each others players to beat ffp.

Is it clever business exploiting a loophole or illegal and could teams face problems down the line?


{Ed002's Note - Clubs are not buying players for more money that they are worth. Newcastle have a legitimate interest in two Everton players. There was a lot of interest in Maatsen and Aston Villa paid what Chelsea wanted, and Broussia Dortmund couldn't, to sign one of their players. Chelsea raised the availability of Omari Kellyman during discussions about another player. It is not a strategy.}

1.) 23 Jun 2024 15:18:10
Conspiracy theorists at it again then.

2.) 23 Jun 2024 20:37:56
It's not overpaying but it is unprecedented that 2 clubs like Villa and Everton would strike those deals for so called fringe/ backup players before the 30th June. I'm sure that will be evident when both clubs post their end of year accounts.
2 clubs that notoriously do their first team business later in the window have both managed to sign players despite being up against FFP in this financial year. ?.

{Ed025's Note - and 2 fringe players at that Smit, and both for undisclosed fees, and both clubs having PSR issues... it sounds a bit dodgy to me mate..

3.) 23 Jun 2024 20:59:52
You got a suspicious mind Ed mate.

{Ed025's Note - and that’s why I’m a big Elvis fan GB.. ?

4.) 23 Jun 2024 22:52:24
Not dodgy Ed just a two finger salute to Masters.

{Ed025's Note - that works for me just as well Smit..

5.) 24 Jun 2024 12:09:43
I may be way off and this is purely a bystanders view so don't have a go if wrong but, say 10 mill for each player over 5 years 2 mill a year, so this year 8 mill profit for both clubs shows.

Yes I'm aware contracts may be shorter and amounts different but its Purley a guess. Will probably see more of these fringe player type deals over the teams in prem.

{Ed001's Note - if you sell for 10m you don't get 10m. 5% goes to the player sold. Then there is associated costs such as agent fees, which can be obscene these days. Then there is also 5% split between the clubs where he was developed at youth level. Unless a player came completely through Everton's academy system, you would get less than 9m in total. Probably substantially less with taxes and fees coming out of it.}

6.) 24 Jun 2024 19:13:28
Cheers for the extra insight ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. It is easy to forget how much comes out of transfer fees. And often clubs will sell the debt on to get ready cash immediately rather than waiting for payments, so lose a large cut of it. Liverpool did that with the Coutinho money from Barcelona, to allow them to spend that summer, and it is very common for clubs to do that. Otherwise you are getting it in dribs and drabs and it often just gets swallowed up in the normal running costs.}

7.) 25 Jun 2024 07:40:51
It is easy to get carried away with the huge numbers My work team invoice 300k a month, can I go out and buy a Rolls Royce? No, with the payments I get that month I can get a Ford Cortina and 20 John player special.
Cash flow comes in so slowly as no one has millions sat in the banks waiting to buy stuff.

According to the rumours mill man utd are interested in buying it, but won't be held to ransom over the price :)

2.) 12 Jun 2024 20:26:19
Yes Wolf we need to Ride (it) out. ??.

3.) 13 Jun 2024 15:11:07
Utd can't afford him without selling players first.



28 Apr 2024 15:41:13
Two questions, if moyes leaves west ham would anyone take him as a dyche replacement?

And Ross Barkley, should he be brought back? He's done fantastic at Luton and surely will be available once their relegation is confirmed

Id personally say no to Moyes and yes to Barkley. I think dyche should get another season, the football is turgid don't get me wrong but if you add on the deducted points it's actually a really good season considering how some of the players just aren't premier league standard and the squad was painfully thin. Would be harsh to sack him now.


1.) 28 Apr 2024 15:56:19
Big NO to both of those.

{Ed025's Note - im with you GB, im thinking for the good of Ross himself for not wanting him back mate..

2.) 28 Apr 2024 16:09:05
No to Moyes. We will never move forward when we getting stop gap bosses.

3.) 28 Apr 2024 16:17:09
No to both, and no to no hopers, hoofers, or relegation special-ists. Yes to winners or young fresh managers ready to step up.

4.) 28 Apr 2024 17:01:00
Well said Nick it’s the only way forward to get out of this continuing tripe we have to watch.

5.) 28 Apr 2024 17:08:43
Too much baggage Ed mate.

{Ed025's Note - yes mate, in this city anyway..

6.) 28 Apr 2024 17:39:55
I may be in the minority here but why change manager now! He's done a solid job with in many ways our worst squad in years, we are defensively solid but far from a creative side, and points deductions aside basically mid table.

Only thing that worries me is our recruitment it's flakey at best, and sure there's a reluctance to play youngsters but we where never safe enough in reality.

7.) 28 Apr 2024 20:10:19
No for me to both. I'd stick with Dyche. I think what's he's done has been under appreciated. With those 8 points deducted, all the crap going on behind the scenes with ownership. I think he's done a brilliant job, OK not pretty but he's working miracles with the tools he's got. I don't think many people would believe we would be safe with 3 games to go. We would have been 13th in the table if we hadn't been deducted. So for me, hats off to Dyche and his team, the players and fans! Job done, it'll be a boring end of season for us, thank God ?.

Nice one jack, that makes more sense so therefore the Newcastle dcl and mintee deals must be unrelated as they aren’t academy players.

I think he’s been very good in euros he’s strong can tackle and a decent passer.

Rumours are that clubs are doing these deals to bend the rules and avoid sanctions as the rules only dictate transfer money not out of they restructure the ins so as not to count for this year so 100% the dcl and minteh deals will happen like the villa deals did and we shouldn’t have to sell branthwaite by July as we will just scrape through due to these deals. Will prob still have to sell him but won’t have our pants pulled down, good on us villa and Newcastle finding a loophole and sticking two fingers up to the premier league.
