Any of the Ed's know if the rumour that us, West Ham and Newcastle have been offered Belotti is true? . or is he still moving elsewhere? .

On that note, purely hypothetical, but would anyone sell DCL and have Belotti on a free if all the funds went into the transfer budget? .


{Ed002's Note - Andrea Belotti (S) of Torino is out of contract and may still provide a solution for Barcelona to add cover. As a Free Agent he provides a potentially viable addition for Spurs, Arsenal or Roma but I suspect the interest of Fiorentina could win out unless something were to happen with Milan. MIlan interest has seemingly gone, at least for now. Monaco provide a wildcard option which may come to fruition. Discount Toronto, Monza and Newcastle. Being offered around.}

Gibbo i would snap your hand off for that. Wanted him for years. Literally baffles me given our predicament that we aren't at least trying for him.

I think minute for minute he scores more than DCL.

When you add in that we could strengthen elsewhere with the DCL money it is a no brainer for me.

2.) 23 Jul 2022 22:11:28
But who is paying 50 million plus for DCL?

3.) 23 Jul 2022 22:40:04
And how do you know we haven't tried for him? Likely we may have reached out to him, been told not a hope by his agent and left it at that.

4.) 23 Jul 2022 23:17:40
I don't know but given our previous moves in the transfer market and how we usually operate i would air on the side of us not having tried for him because we are sh**

He has been at Torino for years. There aren't many clubs we would be a step up from but they certainly should be one. I doubt his agent is going to turn down the chance to earn/ play in the riches of the premier league.

5.) 24 Jul 2022 10:10:14
If he was keen on a move, I’m sure we’d be keen. Could anyone blame the lad for weighing up his options? Every summer, there’s an assumption that nothing’s being done, because we’re not signing anyone.



13 Jun 2021 20:26:37
Is there any interest in Dumfries Ed? . Few reports over the last week.


{Ed002's Note - I thought there would be when Carlo was coach.}

1.) 13 Jun 2021 21:12:00
Shame, think he could do a job for us. Yeah he missed a few chances but his pace and movement look impressive. Got to be there to create those chances.

2.) 13 Jun 2021 21:17:24
Big unit who likes getting forward. Me likey 👍.

3.) 13 Jun 2021 21:20:37
Me too Woburn, perhaps when we get our new manager brands may look at him. Bet his price will be going up with every game though!

4.) 13 Jun 2021 23:22:02
I actually thought he was one of Brands targets from reports but then you can’t always believe the content of these reports.

5.) 15 Jun 2021 00:05:14
I thought he would be a Brands target as he joined PSV after he left but would imagine Brands was there when they first tracked him.



15 Jan 2021 09:23:09
Joshua Zirkzee heavily linked this morning, weren't we looking at him before he went to Bayern eds? . Does anyone know if he's any good is another question. Would have thought we'd have looked at a more senior player to be backup to DCL given we have Simms as well.


{Ed002's Note - Cologne are struggling again this season but do offer a straight loan option for the player. Two recent disciplinary issues may make clubs think twice about the player. Zirkee is said to favour a return to Feyenoord but they are looking for cover for Bryan Linssen which would limit his game time. I am not aware of any approach from Everton but Bayern Munich would certainly listen to offers.}

1.) 15 Jan 2021 11:30:58
I'm wondering whether DCL has a more worrying injury than first thought. Its mentioned as a loan deal which keeps costs down.

Don't really think we need to sign someone and spend big money. I'd rather us wait till summer and get the players we really want and need.

2.) 15 Jan 2021 11:35:47
Normally take rumours with a pitch of salt but this one seems to have legs in it.

3.) 15 Jan 2021 11:58:46
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.}

4.) 15 Jan 2021 12:08:54
think we do need a back up forward to be honest and if it has got legs this then i would expect cenk tosun maybe going out on loan somewhere.

{Ed002's Note - Bayern Munich are not going to loan a player who will simply be providing cover.}

5.) 15 Jan 2021 13:30:03
I think it’s got to be more than cover. DCL can’t play every minute of every game.
I’d be pretty annoyed if I was Ellis Simms and they bring in a 19yr old though - or people at club don’t rate him as I am suprised he hadn’t had a look in

If he has behaviour issues I hope we have learnt lesson from Van De Mede and Drenthe and don’t bring him in unless he is prepared to do a shift

Lakaku, Kean and Sidibe recent examples of players coming in who really don’t want to be here - sadly Richarlison looking that way too at the minute (wonder if he is looking at Kean and thinking I want a price of that)

{Ed025's Note - his behaviour issues may well be exaggerated sobs, he went in on a keeper in a reserve game and got a 3 match ban, if these problems are the result of over committment then it does not worry me at all mate..

6.) 15 Jan 2021 14:31:54
Cool - well if he’s better than Simms let’s get him 👍.

7.) 15 Jan 2021 17:24:23
A third party has become involved who has approached Parma, West Ham and Everton with regards the player. It is him talking with the press.

8.) 16 Jan 2021 15:03:37
Ferguson would never have left Rangers, if we took that mind set, if he can put it in the onion bag, will do for me.

9.) 16 Jan 2021 19:25:25
Feegusin averaged 1 goal in 4 for everton.
In his second stint he averaged 1 in 5.5 (that’s less than 8 a season) and that includes cup games
Great guy and offered more than just goals but he was as prolific has Toson is now.

10.) 16 Jan 2021 23:36:33
As good as a guard dog living next to you.



24 Apr 2020 09:51:34
Ed's, I see us linked with a lot of names in the papers. But realistically, can we really expect much business this summer given the current financial crisis and our existing FFP issues? .


{Ed002's Note - Everything is a little in the air whilst Carlo assesses what he needs, but thyere is continued influence over Mr Moshiri from advisors. I think the club will need to look for a CB and a S as the priority. Much will depend on who leaves and of course the likes of Yannick Bolasie will return from loan and line up with the collection of LW players.}

1.) 24 Apr 2020 12:28:45
How do theses influences sit with Carlo?

{Ed002's Note - As long as he has a say it may not be a major problem. Much of his career has been in Italy where coaches tend not to be overly involved in transfers and many clubs use advisors who are well briefed. Klopp was persuaded to move for Salah over his three preferred options and that worked out well. Manchester United have someone trustworthy on the staff who drives decisions. The difference at Everton is the advice is going to the owner from people who are not experts.}

2.) 24 Apr 2020 13:16:23
would these include brands, who i assumed was more than qualified to assess possible new signings?

{Ed002's Note - Brands expertise is not being exploited at Everton.}

3.) 24 Apr 2020 19:52:08
Dixie; Brands field of so-called 'expertise' is narrow, more toward bringing through potential. His model is more long term. Problem being our (Everton) renowned impatience.

4.) 24 Apr 2020 21:34:43
It certainly looks like they are not experts ed . thanks for the info.

{Ed002's Note - Bill C is correct - Brands’ expertise is based on structure and time.}

5.) 25 Apr 2020 14:51:22
Clearly these advisors can’t see past the left wing with all that we sign and are interested in!



15 Mar 2020 11:21:22
With regards to our FFP issues, do the eds know if there have been discussions within the EPL as to the impact the postponement of the season will have on this? . Will clubs be given special dispensation given it will undoubtedly affect the profit/ losses of clubs? .


{Ed002's Note - A very good question. It has not been discussed yet but there is a meeting on Tuesday at UEFA where it is one of the items on the agenda and my gut feeling is they will cut some slack - in which case the Premier League will likely follow suit. I don't know what format it will take. The Premier League rules are way less stringent in any case.}

1.) 15 Mar 2020 12:28:35
Ed with all the uncertainty the postponement has caused, it seems Manchester citys problems have slipped off the back pages, are they to be discussed at the meeting, or will it be case of it being low priority at the moment, the two year ban from Europe I suspect has been given simply so they can halve it on appeal.

{Ed002's Note - No, the Manchester City appeal is not to UEFA and won't be heard before next season starts.}

Dyche getting the boot, didn't see that coming! . Fingers crossed they don't get the new manager bounce.


1.) 15 Apr 2022 13:46:12
Bold move from Burnley - could be a stroke of genius and they’ll see a sudden improvement and we’re in trouble. Conversely could put them further into trouble.
Definitely makes the last 8 games more tense for us.
Just hope we concentrate on our results and performances rather than relying on teams below us to do worse.

2.) 15 Apr 2022 14:01:51
Out of curiosity, would anyone take Dyche over Lampard come the end of the season. (Not that I’m currently in the Lampard out camp, I’ve just heard we have the option to terminate his contact at the end of the season) . Pros for Lampard are he’s trying to instil a progressive style, pros for Dyche would be he would instil a steel within the team and has a good track record of operating on a budget.

3.) 15 Apr 2022 15:04:52
Not for me thanks.

4.) 15 Apr 2022 15:18:00
Not for me either mate.

5.) 15 Apr 2022 16:17:41
Perfect role for big dunc or unsworth to cut their teeth. Maybe not this season but definitely next. They will be relegated after this so for first step on the managerial ladder it would ideal for those 2.

6.) 15 Apr 2022 17:55:12
Maybe there just getting ready for life out of the Prem, and think it’s time to try something new.

7.) 15 Apr 2022 18:51:22
We shouldn't be worrying about Burnley, win our game in hand against Leicester and we should be looking to reel Leeds and Newcastle in.

8.) 16 Apr 2022 05:33:37
I'll tell you after the next 8 games Gibbo. I'm hoping Frank shows enough by then that the question is moot.

9.) 16 Apr 2022 12:44:11
If only Burnley knew how to win games eh Sean, ring any bells.

10.) 16 Apr 2022 15:43:18
Love it glt mate.



26 Jan 2022 09:58:17
I'd have probably graffitied Pereira out, Lampard out but hey Ho.




17 Jan 2022 15:24:13
It's going to be Mr Phenomenal isn't it. ??‍♂️.


{Ed025's Note - that would not surprise in the slightest gibbo..

1.) 17 Jan 2022 16:54:24
It's hard to be serious about a subject that is descending into farse, but it's long since time we did.
So, a man who for three season had his club on the verge relegation, before managing to do it, was then inexplicable givern the goodison job made a pig's ear of it and was then sacked to save the club, is now being considered to ride in as our saviour, in the name of God, what are the smoking in the boardroom.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 16:39:13
No of course not and neither will Potter come, nor Fonseca, nor Lampard. The Club is such a F. Up. That the only ones that will come are half wit and erm, no that's it.

3.) 17 Jan 2022 17:41:50
Any manager would come to us as we are a guaranteed pension plan.



01 Jun 2021 17:57:01
So how does the compensation work Ed? . Do Real have to buy out the remainder of his contract or do we just name our price and negotiate from there? .


{Ed025's Note - i really dont know gibbo, and as rhett butler once said..."frankly my dear i dont give a damn..

1.) 01 Jun 2021 19:22:56
Just wondered if maybe we’d be able to buy out Sigurdsson’s contract with it Ed 😂.

{Ed025's Note - we need a lot more than just him out the door gibbo mate..



01 Jun 2021 15:10:51
Look on the bright side, at least we're getting compensation this time instead of having to pay off a 4th manager 😂.

I can’t see how we could turn it down, clubs seem to have reigned it in with transfer fee’s this summer. There are a few exceptions but mainly this window we’ve seen some top players move for sub £50m, the days of 100m+ transfers seem to be gone (or on hiatus) . With that in mind it would be an exceptional offer for a player who isn’t the finished article. I would sell, hoping it would be reinvested.

If it gets anywhere near 50m you really have to take that, Gordon has great potential, but it’s just potential at present and that’s the kind of money you’d be expecting for the finished article. Some top players have gone for less than 50m this season (Sterling, Jesus) .

Anyone seen him play? . What type of midfielder is he, defensive, box to box etc? .

Usually Fabrizio Romano is pretty reliable, so I just wonder if we have been holding back a pot of money in the hope we could get Gallagher, with that not happening maybe we’re trying for Onana. Obviously if this came from the Sun I’d take it with a pinch of salt but as its FR, it makes me wonder ?.

Speaking of Forest word is they’re close to signing Houssem Aouar. Can’t believe we wouldn’t put our hat into the ring for this guy, I know money is tight but if we sell Gordon then I know where my money would go.


{Ed002's Note - Everton has no interest in him.}

After 2 games you can’t say we’re defensively worse off, we conceded 2 good goals yesterday, last season it would have been an own goal and a Holgate clearance straight onto Keane’s backside and into the goal. It was a comedy of errors last season. We look more organised and solid, they just need to gel more. Coady, Tarkowski and Holgate have literally played 1 game together. I see us mid to lower mid table this season.

Do any of the Ed’s know if this could see Allan moved on? . Is there any interest in the player? .


{Ed002's Note - Allan (CM/DM) The player has shared a desire to return to Italy and Everton are looking at options for midfield and have a couple of players in mind. The sale of Allen would depend on the price which is falling away and clubs accepting a player whois 31. It might be tough to find a buyer. Given he is in to his 30s he will become harder to sell.
