Zaha to us, Iwobi plus cash to them? Any chance Ed's?

{Ed025's Note - i have seen that touted welsh, it sounds great to me but how much cash they would want is the problem mate..

1.) 17 Sep 2020 20:48:27
Can’t we chuck Bolasie in too?

{Ed025's Note - we could chuck another 8 in JB..

2.) 17 Sep 2020 20:58:58
Exactly! Iwobi, Wally, Tosun surely they'd all be happy to go London.
I know it doesn't work like that but it'd be a great solution.

3.) 17 Sep 2020 23:48:15
I’ve heard it is £20 Million with Iwobi thrown in the deal, or Palace are up for a straight £19 Million cash only deal.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 01:17:07
Cheers Ed025. We’ll be generous, they can have Besic as well.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 20:38:18
New rumour we after Ivan perasic was on loan at Bayern last season but decided not to sign him inter and hertha Berlin intrested in him along with Leicester Man U and Everton always liked him long shot love to have him at Everton what do u think ed.

{Ed025's Note - im a big fan steve, but it seems a bit unlikely if im honest mate..



27 Aug 2020 22:09:38
Jesus! (Not the player) the Zaha links are doing the rounds again. BORING!

1.) 28 Aug 2020 11:11:31
Lazy journalism from papers we have no interest in him any more.

2.) 28 Aug 2020 11:43:26
Agree getting fed up of it but in fairness would definitely dump Iwobi for Zaha. If there was anything in it swap deal + would be ideal.

3.) 28 Aug 2020 13:51:13
Most definitely Karlos. Palace can have Iwobi and Bernard or Walcott and 10m maximum. If fans did transfers? hahaha.

{Ed002's Note - It will be because of the signing of Eze.}



25 Aug 2020 22:03:06
James on his way?



21 Aug 2020 19:40:44
I know I previously stated that we should all know by now that we don't have the money for all these players that we are being linked with but do any of the Ed's know what kind of budget we do have without moving any players on? In other words could we buy Doucoure, Allan or Maksimovic 1,2 or all 3 of them without the need to sell?

{Ed002's Note - Money needs to be raised through sales and the wages need to drop.}

1.) 21 Aug 2020 21:48:25
Wages are the problem, we know we’re not going to be raising much money from sales certainly not to fund new players, I don’t know how serious we are regarding Allan and Dacoure are but that’s going to cost 50-60m now if you think of players we want to off load, we ain’t going to bring that in to fund it, so it’s getting wage bill down reducing squad size and taking a hit with losses on these players.

2.) 21 Aug 2020 22:03:50
I think we will make 1 first team signing max or none at all. A bit depressing really. I've just accepted that most of our terrible over paid players will see out their contracts, after all they came here for the big pay day, not to play football. Will be a few years until they are all out.

3.) 21 Aug 2020 23:08:55
It’s not their fault they’re overpaid. Would you reject a new contract that tripled your wages? We need to direct our frustrations at previous managers and scouts.
I seem to be in the minority of fans who think we’ll sign several players. We’ve already sold/ released Baines, Martina, Niasse, Schneiderlin, Stekelenburg - that’s a good chunk off the wage bill. Others will follow. We’re not the only team who need to be careful with finances.

4.) 21 Aug 2020 23:08:49
Thanks Ed002. Like your thoughts Trueblue, I suppose I feel I’m in the same boat as you FatChris. I just can’t see any takers for the mercenaries that came to us. I’m ever optimistic we’ll do well under Carlos guidance with whatever we’ve got and if we can keep him in a few years we could do something special.

5.) 22 Aug 2020 00:54:41
If you were Carlo and the window slams shut with zero signings, what would you think? Hasn't he always stated loud and clear that when he signed on he would be backed in the transfer market.
He didn't spend at Xmas and said that the market wasn't right and he was happy to wait to this summers window.
Surely a man like that (regardless of his wages) packs his bags and takes the next big job to come up in the coming weeks. He walks out claiming promises were broken and he was sold a pup.

I don't think for a second our club would make that mistake. I think we will get 2 loans and 1 buy. If we did screw up the opportunity of this coach, we really have the wrong people upstairs.

{Ed0666's Note - yes but when Carlo signed no one expected a worldwide health pandemic which is severely restricting expenditure.

6.) 22 Aug 2020 10:37:19
Probably 1/4 of the salaries we will pay Ancelotti and his merry men over the next 4.5 yrs it’s just a great excuse for all the I told you so’s
Ancelotti didn’t join a team 2 days before Christmas in the relegation zone on a promise of sell to buy. When Italian and some English journalists said he would never come to Everton.

He’s also always talked about ambition and in recent interviews said we don’t have to sell to buy.
Yes FFP is an issue, but we must have already shifted 20mil of the wage, with probably more to come.

7.) 22 Aug 2020 10:27:34
I've just read that Everton will make Doucoure one of their highest paid players. Sounds like we've learnt our lesson.



18 Aug 2020 09:17:33
Everybody knows by now that we are short on funds, so a big transfer (more than 25-30m) is simply not going to happen, so to be constantly linked with big money moves for plays like Zaha etc etc is just really lazy journalism. So frustrating!

1.) 18 Aug 2020 21:02:11
Not if the deal is amortised over the length of the contract.

A lot of media covering Rodríguez and Allan today but I've not seen anything on Doucoure, I suppose we'll wait to the last minute of the last day in the transfer market for that one, wouldn't be a true transfer deadline day with the blues being involved.

1.) 01 Sep 2020 10:29:46
At the moment it is media hype and wishful thinking rumour. The facts have not changed. Before bringing in new transfers we simply have to get our current wage and costs bill down. Bolasie, Besic even Ramirez are still on the roster with no hope of playing (so it seems) .



15 Jul 2020 22:11:11
Usual suspects being tossed around again
Allan, Todibo, Cengiz Ünder.
I wonder who we will sign and if any of the above named will come to Goodison?

1.) 16 Jul 2020 10:06:07
To be fair. I think we actually hold an interest in all three, unlike most of the other names we read about. So it wouldn’t surprise me to see one of the three arriving.

I think when Tosun gets up to speed (after injury) we will see the player we thought we were getting. Nearly everyone was slating DCL before the season kicked off but just look at what having better players around him has done, not taking anything away from DCLs efforts. Tosun is a great finisher and I think our style of play now will suit him. COYB.

There is a player in there but his heart just isn’t in it and as a result his price tag will have massively dropped. Send him on loan to Juve for a year (No fee, just pay wage) with an obligation to buy him back for what we paid for him.

The reason James hasn’t signed yet is because he doesn’t want to let his lovely wage packet from Real Madrid go, holding on to it for as long as possible.

Hi Ed002, sorry to hear you’ve been getting stick and that you feel the way you do. I think you and the other Ed’s do a great job. Do you have admin power?, are you able to delete/ remove unsavoury characters?

{Ed002's Note - I am sure it will be OK soon.}
