Reports that Sidibe had a medical yesterday and on his way 💪🏻.

Really don't know much much about him I know was in French squad so got to be ok any know how good he is.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 17:06:44
Know about as much as you myself David, I assume he must be attack minded able to get up and down the right side and put in a decent cross
Let’s hope he has a similar impact to Digne! 😍.



04 Aug 2019 10:53:18
Sky are reporting the medical is completed for Kean and could be announced today
So that will likely be tomorrow then 🤣.

He’s signed this morning five year deal thank god for that.

Hi Ed’s do you know if the reported interest in Tosun from Schalke is genuine?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know but they have enquired before.}

1.) 18 Jul 2019 06:46:43
Thanks Ed might be something in it then.



16 Jul 2019 22:59:49
Hi Ed002 L’Equipe in France are stating we are showing an interest in Morgan Sanson, I know you have mentioned he would be a great acquisition but do you know it this is us reigniting interest or from previous?

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Everton are one of the sides interested in Morgan Sanson and the lady from marseille has spoken directly with the club - as she has with a number of others.}

1.) 17 Jul 2019 22:44:22
He’s a central midfielder isn’t he? We’re well stocked currently. Might need to ship Schneiderlin out first.



16 Jul 2019 18:26:55
Deal in principle agreed to sell Lookman to RB Leipzig for £22.5m 😳.

Southern Toffee

1.) 16 Jul 2019 19:01:51
If so it is good business. Likely has a sell on clause as well. I will have faith that Silva feels they can let him go. I remember how we felt about Garbutt, Galloway, and others in the past. Besides if he wants to go, you can’t have an angry player seething on the bench.

2.) 16 Jul 2019 19:38:37
Let him go. The money is good. He doesn’t really have much of a say in the first team. We have players who play more than home who we would gladly sell for £22+ million. Good business for me.

3.) 16 Jul 2019 19:55:29
Good luck to the lad and I'm sure he'll be playing more regularly there. For whatever reason it just hasn't worked out for him at Everton. Showed flashes of potential at times but never really got a good run in the first team. I wonder if they have a replacement lined up? Another LW being brought in just to humour Ed002 perhaps haha!

4.) 17 Jul 2019 11:58:13
I admit baffled by all the sentiment about Lookman, we bought him, made a profit and he was not happy here. He did little or nothing for us.
I understand sentiment about local players or young lads that have completely come through our system or given us years of service ie Jagielka but Lookman, good riddance as far as I am concerned.

From what I have seen at the back end of last season and so far this season Digne and Bernard seem to be building a great understanding of each other’s game similar to what we had down the left side with Baines and Pienaar.

Southern Toffee

1.) 19 Aug 2019 15:34:06
Without bashing Coleman -
Sidibi and Iwobi could potentially be the same on the right side.

I think Sidibi will be great for us and I think he’ll get Coleman’s place in team.

Only problem with all of this is that if defence stays tight - we could end up losing Mina as Barcelona have buy back clause until end of this season.

Great start to season - let’s beat Villa COYB.

2.) 19 Aug 2019 19:45:36
I think the option to buy on Sidibe is a masterstroke. It secures a perm if we need it but also is a gentle nudge to Coleman that he needs to be better than last season as there is perhaps long term competition for his place by a WC winner.

3.) 19 Aug 2019 20:09:42
I might have to have a word with Brands because I need to secure my perm too. 🤣

Love your typos.

4.) 19 Aug 2019 19:55:03
Sobs, surely if we decide to sell or are you indicating FIFA/ EUFA will condone breaking contract.

5.) 19 Aug 2019 22:00:19
Well I hope he stays Sobs. Some wrote him off last season even though he was injured most of it.
Marco is the one knitting it together and training these players to be solid at the back.

Mina looks like another good signing by Marco and Marcel, let's hope the ones who come in this time are as good.

6.) 19 Aug 2019 22:07:38
I wasn’t aware of a buy back in Minas contract. It wouldn’t surprise me though as it was Barcelona we bought him off and they love a buy back them.

7.) 19 Aug 2019 22:12:30
Smit, I’ll have to do a hundred lines

“I must lern to speel butter” 😂😂.

8.) 19 Aug 2019 22:13:31
I don't believe that Barcelona have a buy back clause on Mina, do any of the ed's know the situation?

{Ed025's Note - they do actually mike, but they will have to pay 52m euro mate..

9.) 19 Aug 2019 23:43:56
Thanks Ed. It won't happen, he will be ours for a few more years.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too mike..

10.) 20 Aug 2019 04:22:57
Can one of the Eds tell me how Mina's buy back clause works if he doesn't want to go back to Barcelona?

Can he forced to go back
If he doesn't want to go back can he be sold to another team at a lower fee even if Barcelona activate their option?
I take it that this can only happen during the transfer windows

With Gomes I know we didn't have any option to buy but we had an enormous bargaining chip with the relationship between Gomes and the fans

I don't believe we are there yet in the relationship with Mina. Maybe something for us to work on?

{Ed002's Note - You cannot force a player to sign for a club.}

11.) 20 Aug 2019 09:24:56
Thanks ED

So he wouldn't have been required to be party to the buy back clause?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, it would be in his contract.}

12.) 20 Aug 2019 11:32:34
Sorry to be stupid but if Barcelona exercised their option and agreed to pay the buy back fee would Mina have already agreed terms for him to go be part of the buy back or would they re-negotiate his terms upon exercising the buy back clause and it would be up to him to agree terms then or decide to stay at Everton?

{Ed002's Note - No, you cannot force a player to move if he does not wish to. You seem to be over complicating this. It is really very simple:

(a) Barcelona sold Yerri Mina to Everton in the summer of 2018. Included in the contract was an option to buy the player back for a fixed transfer fee of €60M in any transfer window between the summer of 2020 and the January transfer window of 2023 (after which his contract expires). If Everton were to extend his contract, that clause remains active for one more window (the summer of 2023).
(b) Should Barcelona decide during one of those transfer windows that they would like to avail themselves of the option to buy him back, then Barcelona need to inform Everton (who are themselves obliged to inform the player).
(c) Should the player decide that he would like to return to Barcelona then he would tell Everton of his desire to leave and would request Felipe Russo to negotiate the personal deal for Mina with Barcelona and his own fee. If that is all agreed, then he can return.
(d) Should the player were decide his future is not with Barcelona and he wants to stay at Everton or move elsewhere, then he is free to reject any overtures from Barcelona and carry on at Everton or opt to move to another side.

In reality, the rules make it very, very unlikely that Mina will ever return to Barcelona.}

13.) 20 Aug 2019 13:09:42
Thanks ED

Just one final piece of clarification. Is the fee 60 million euro you stated or is it the 52 million euro in Ed025's post above

Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - The fee is €60M - I assume the €8M difference is Ed025's cut. You will have to ask him.}

14.) 20 Aug 2019 13:29:37
Or its to go with the Arteta money.

15.) 20 Aug 2019 20:02:57
Ed025’s cut. Love it Ed002 🤣🤣.



05 Aug 2019 22:47:38
If we are going for one last push for Zaha we should offer them Bolasie knock £10m off and a replacement for Zaha, McCarthy for £10m and Tosun at £20m
Top it up with £30m and it’s a right result all round
Knocks a load off our wage bill as well
Then snap up Doucoure Buy Zouma or loan him again and add this Sidibe on loan and I think we will be smashing our way into those European spots!
In Marcel We Trust! 😃.

Southern Toffee

1.) 05 Aug 2019 23:04:31
Brands is one hell of a negotiater, but not even Brands will get £40 Million for the above three Southern.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 23:51:38
I’m happy for him to negotiate, it’s only a starting position 😉.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 09:12:37
Nice idea Southern Toffee but that's assuming Palace want those 3 and also they want to go there.



04 Aug 2019 21:57:58
Hi Ed’s seeing links to this Rony Lopes over the last few days is this someone we are looking at for the right wing spot?
Do you know who we are still possibly interested in?
Malcolm has gone, Neres is looking too pricey now.

Southern Toffee

{Ed002's Note - Rony Lopes is yet another LW.}

1.) 05 Aug 2019 10:09:14
If I remember rightly Lopes had his pen saved by Stekelenburg in the friendly against us and we won that game 1-0. Another LW, it's like the gift that keeps on giving. Like a joke that never gets to the punchline. Poor Ed002 must be fed up hearing about LW's by now.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 11:54:41
According to transfermarkt he is a left footed right winger so fitted the required profile Howie.

{Ed002's Note - He spent last season playing on the LW with Gelson Martins and Sidene playing on the right.}

3.) 05 Aug 2019 12:31:07
Yeah I've seen the links myself ST.
I wasn't having a pop at you (sorry if it sounded that way) I was more amused it was another LW.

He did OK in the game against us but he was pretty average. I think we could get better players than him though. I'm not sure who is available but I'd like to think we are going to sign another RW.

4.) 05 Aug 2019 13:57:09
I was more interested in any validity to the link or whether it was the press pulling random names out
West Ham are also linked now so think it might be a random name scenario.



04 Aug 2019 14:30:08
So have we bid for Doucoure? Or was it just the paper stuck in their fax machine from last summer?

Southern Toffee



31 Jul 2019 17:11:39
Reports of Raiola being in Liverpool to finalise our move for Kean, anyone seen him? He’s quite hard to miss 😉.

Southern Toffee

{Ed025's Note - i think you can hear him before you see him ST...big head no bread in the house..

1.) 31 Jul 2019 18:50:43
Yet he’s not short on dough Ed.

{Ed025's Note - nice one ace..

2.) 31 Jul 2019 19:50:06
Makes him sound like the pilsbury dough boy. actually. could be onto something here!

I’m not saying the summer recruitment was rubbish I like Iwobi Delph Kean and Gbamin there’s just something not right with the way we are playing end of last season the team seemed up for it, and Gueye was bossing the middle of the park! Clearly miss his energy.
We could turn the corner again but then again we may have done that too many times already.

To be fair I think we are currently going through the pain of poor player recruitment from other regimes which I feel hampered out activity on player recruitment.
Having said that I think we dilly rallied too long on the Zouma hope and that cost us plus we didn’t get a striker who would deliver now, or perhaps we did but just don’t play to their strengths 🤷🏻‍♂️
Talking of which, this zonal marking keeps coming out as part of our woes, maybe our personnel aren’t capable of that And other teams work out how to exploit the gaps we leave 🤦🏻‍♂️.

When your hand is forced you have to look at other opportunities and maybe this is the time someone in the U23’s gets their chance to shine and progress.
