Not sure whether I believe that but I'd love it to happen!! I mean other than us who wants a striker that couldn't

You're just trying to make us feel good. I watched him against Leeds yesterday and I'm convinced my 8yr old grand-daughter is better than him. He couldn't score in a barrel of fannies.

Hope you are right m8.

02 Aug 2015 12:11:06
God I really hope so he just not good enough

02 Aug 2015 12:35:43
would also mean a replacement is due!

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 09:33:45
Apparently we have signed Aleksander Askilsrud from Valarenga. He's a 14 year old who Man United were after and will play in the U18s. Not exactly exciting but still news

Believable1 Unbelievable1

02 Aug 2015 11:43:39
This was posted by his agent who surprisingly only has a handful of followers on twitter. The player himself can't be found on google and he's not on Valerenga's web site. I find this one intriguing to say the least.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 07:49:46
Ed, is there any truth in the Tomas Andrade and Kortney House links, also I've heard were in for Austin

{Ed025's Note - nothing on andrade or hause dan, we have been linked to austin but newcastle look favourites mate..

Believable0 Unbelievable0

02 Aug 2015 09:21:14
McLaren on ssn stating they have made no contact for Austin.
Could be all smoke and mirrors though

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 11:23:52
I have seen these rumours but again promising young players, also Soton apparently have opened bidding on van dijk £8m, what's frustrating is although I agree with the idea of bringing young talent through its no good if we are going to sell them as it seems with stones.
What is also more annoying is that we need some experienced players to bolster the first team, leaving signings till late in the window gives them no time to integrate into the pre season preparations.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 02:05:49
Any bids/offers accept for any players ED's?

{Ed025's Note - no lanny we are holding firm at the moment mate, i just hope we dont succumb at the last minute when its impossible to replace anyone..

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 17:33:48
What about snapping up some free transfers! Ron vlaar and Goan gourcaff. Surely 2 good signings!M

{Ed002's Note - Vlaar is injured. Gourcuff won't be moving to Everton.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 19:18:01
I also watched Celtic on tv today. Van Dijk looked very good player and I think would suit Everton style of football.

Agree6 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 10:23:19
Inter apparently urging shaquiri to move on, could be a bargain to grab if they want him out or a white elephant?

Believable5 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2015 12:50:43
Cracking player! Would love to see him at Goodison.

Agree4 Disagree3

01 Aug 2015 15:29:39
if he signs give it week than you will all be complaining fat waste of space.

Agree4 Disagree4

01 Aug 2015 16:15:28
Are we so desperate we will sign anyone. Inter can't wait to get shot of him he's lazy. The only way players are coming in is if Stones or Macca goes. Don't think anyone realizes how much Everton are in the red. If you ain't got it you can't spend it.

Agree1 Disagree6

01 Aug 2015 18:21:13
Straight swap with Kone mooted.
Can throw mcgeady in for nowt

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 20:52:20
Konehead, you've obviously never seen this fella play, and Alan Kevin you're obviously a kopite. As I said earlier Shaquiri is a cracking player and would definitely enhance the squad. Oh and we can afford him because we're not skint.

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 21:07:54
I disagree that we can only buy if Stones or McCarthy go, We won't have much to spend without selling first just got to be clever with who we buy throw 2 top players in that first 11 and who knows how good we can be & if we are even interested in Shaqiri I doubt we will sign him without Mirallas or McGeady going hopefully it's McGeady

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 22:53:47
We have more than enough cash, just lack the will to spend it, either that, or we are saveing it for the new manager in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 01:08:08
R we not spending money because the board r not sure if matinaz will still ne in charge come jan? Any thoughts fellow blues

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 07:53:59
Something is definitely going on and perhaps we are more in the red than being let on. Despite the top 4 Europe rhetoric the suspicion has to be that bringing Martinez in was an acceptance that we are now and for the immediate future a middle or top half Team at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 18:55:03
Apparently Mourinho has ruled out a 3rd bid for Stones. not that I believe him like

Believable0 Unbelievable2

31 Jul 2015 21:11:03
I've just read that he wants to put the whole thing to bed with a third bid.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 22:23:51
The other thing I've read is that we are just £4m apart in our valuations. Surely though, as he is under contract for a long time and we don't want to sell the price is anything we want it to be. £50m? Why not? We don't need to sell, it's their job to persuade us to, and £26m doesn't cut it

Agree3 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 12:48:29
Only the red tops have put a price on Stones, no-one else. They are also the ones reporting that Mourinho has ruled out a third offer for Stones, whereas if you watch the interview he says no such thing. He says " It's over" but does that refer to his other statement about talking about other clubs players. It's a very ambiguous comment, take it as you will.

Ed have we got any money to spend I think it's getting ridiculous now, also maybe if we made a couple of decent signings it would give or players a lift and show a bit of ambition.

{Ed025's Note - not just the players stef, the supporters would get a lift as well mate, we do have money but we seem very reluctant to spend it..

Believable1 Unbelievable0

31 Jul 2015 12:59:38
Direct Martinez quote below, you don't even have to interpret it, it'll go down to the wire on deadline day (as per McCarthy/Fellaini). Just going to have to wait :-(

'Our squad is not complete. We are still looking for two positions and we need to make sure they fit exactly in the group in the manner we want and expect as footballers and people.
'Central defence is one of those positions. Two experienced centre-halves left the squad, so we need to fill those gaps.
'I'm still assessing two of the young players we've got in the squad, but maybe we need another new face at centre-half.
'We will wait as long as we can to select the person we want.'

My money is on Van Dijk from Celtic and I think that might be our only buy.

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Jul 2015 13:34:59
Calm down, it's not as though all the other clubs are buying players right left and centre. What's the rush? It's the same every season panic, panic, panic.

Agree2 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 18:30:36
There are things in motion in the background, they have been waiting to get money into club after 1st Aug rather than using bank loan/bridging loan on existIng debt. Sounds like responsible thing to do, unlike most things from the club! Ad long as we see fresh faces soon I'm not concerned. yet. Also talks about Van Dijk have been held irrespective of Stones

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 03:08:15
Ed do you know if we are actually going to activate Nolito's release clause? Great value for the price, and he looks a class player. With injuries to peanut and Gerry we could definitely use a left sided player. Him with a cb and a striker and maybe a player on loan from Barcelona and that would be a good summer.

{Ed025's Note - we have asked about him lee, but thats as far as it gone up to now mate..

Believable1 Unbelievable0

31 Jul 2015 07:35:25
Ed have we actually got any money?

{Ed025's Note - yes we have graham, but will we spend any of it?..your guess is as good as mine mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 22:20:50
I was talking to Lee Carsleys hairdresser who was having a pint in scottie road, he said big dunc is coming out of retirement and taking the number nine jersey off Kone, the club to issue a statement shortly saying they will refund the one top they sold with Kones name on it, you heard anything on this Ed. :-)

{Ed025's Note - its completely true bri.. :)

30 Jul 2015 21:30:22
Ed do u know if we r interested in Argentinean Tomas andrade if so what u think r chances of getting him are

{Ed025's Note - i know he starred in the U19 game against us duke, but there are no links mate sorry..

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Jul 2015 19:35:45
35m + Loic Remy, I could live with that, so the special one can put up, or shut up.

30 Jul 2015 20:01:23
very funny ed

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 13:58:20
Seeing Caulker move on loan to saints, I can't help thinking we have missed a big chance there! Would have been great cover for stones and jags!

Believable8 Unbelievable2

29 Jul 2015 19:51:43
Great news with the club going public on John stones, let's hope they see it through. Is there anything in the Shiqiri deal Ed? Would be a quality signing

{Ed025's Note - he would be tron, but its very unlikely to happen in this window mate..

Believable7 Unbelievable0

30 Jul 2015 07:32:39
I don't know what's going to happen with stones, clearly I would like him to stay a couple more seasons, but if he goes we just move on. no one player is bigger than the club and if he does go it will be for good money. but I will say this, I hope he doesn't go to chelsea just because of some of the comments by mourinho and the derisary bids thus far made. I generaly like mourinho but he can be arrogant and a wind up merchant. I hope man city or Everton tell everton they will match or better any offers made by chelsea and if stones does go he chooses to stay up north just to wipe that smug look off mourinhos face!

Agree4 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 08:43:51
Man Utd apparently registering interest. If he does decide to go I think it would be prudent of us to play all of the clubs off each other. If it is done privately surely we can tell Man City whatever we want regarding other clubs' bids to ensure the highest possible amount is leached from them.

Ultimately, I don't want him to leave as I think it is bad news to sell the players we should be building a team around, and I think it sends the wrong message out. Fellaini I could accept as it was clear he didn't fit the Martinez model, but Stones epitomises the way we should be playing from the back.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 10:44:16
If as stated in the garbage tabloids that the 2 Manc sides are about to come in is true, then Stones will go for 35 million, as long as we get to spend that cash

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 13:24:29
All ifs and buts, but if he does go we need to buy replacements 1st or risk paying over the odds later. If he does go I'd like 30+mil and Hernandez from United then use some of that on van dijk and dragovic.the board can pocket the rest or give back to the fans and get Shaqiri or another class player as a show of intent.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 17:03:18
Why don't the hierarchy just come out on spn & say stones is not 4 sale @ any price & give the lad a new contract effectively doubling his money that should do the trick.
If were to show any ambition need 2 keep him & build team round him 4 the future.Martinez sez we don't have 2 sell so that being the case he should stay.
I still think he'll go if not in this window certainly the Jan one for sure because everyone has a price.
Can't blame the lad who no doubt has been unsettled by mourhino, Cahill & co so in effect similar to the lescott situation only matter of time b4 it happens.
Better 4 us if it does go ahead that other clubs city,utd & Chelsea have an auction sell to highest bidder 35-40 mill not a penny less.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 19:43:30
@jonsey. Where you from pal as I have a cousin who we all call that.

I wouldn't take any less than 50m for stones. If sterlin? Cost 49m then sure stones is worth 50m as its just important to have a great defence as well as a good attack

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 17:16:58
Hi ed from a good source who trains the kids he reckons stones definitely going mate I'm gutted if I'm honest do you think Lennon will be back ed cheers

{Ed002's Note - Lennon will leave Spurs and is perhaps considering options before committing to EFC.}

Believable1 Unbelievable4

29 Jul 2015 18:47:04
Trains the kids or not it"s just another individuals opinion. no more believable or unbelievable than the girl who cuts Ross's hair

Agree6 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 09:16:02
hi Ed, have you heard this one and do you know if any truth in it - we are favourites to sign Aleksandr Dragovic from Dynamo Kyiv for 14mil euros

{Ed002's Note - Dragovic might be an option if Stones leaves for Chelsea or any other club. Certainly Everton will not have made a bid at this time - unless they know Stones is off.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

29 Jul 2015 19:37:12
Why would we not be after him even if stones doesn't get sold? We need a centre back even if stones stays.

{Ed002's Note - He would be seen as a replacement.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 19:51:17
So will we be after an obvious 3rd choice centre back rather than buying 1 who could challenge straight away?

{Ed002's Note - There has been interest in young two-footed and expensive Dragovic from Hertha Berlin, Manchester United, Arsenal and Inter, with Arsenal pressing his agent on a number of occasions. Dinamo Kiev are keen to keep hold of the player but it may prove difficult. Dragovic would be a replacement for Stones - if Liverpool look for another CB it could be either a replacement or an option used as cover.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 20:00:17
We need another cb regardless of the Stones situation ed002, so I suppose whoever we take an interest in will be classed as such. Doesn't mean that is the case though. Dragovic did impress me last season but I haven't seen enough of him playing to judge properly. I'd rather have the lad from Celtic to be honest

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 15:24:59
Just heard we have rejected the second bid from Chelski for Stones well done keep it up.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

29 Jul 2015 18:01:11
Its all well and good saying we've rejected the bid lancerboy,but imo we are only holding out for a higher offer and Stones will be gone,and if that happens so will i. I am sick to death of this board taking the piss outta us loyal fans who spend our hard earned cash following our club home and away and we get nothing in return.We are told were not a selling club if that's right why do we always sell our crown jewels to the highest bidder? We unearth a gem and soon as someone wants to pay x amount for them we sell them.Stones should not be allowed to leave Everton no matter how much is offered,even if his head has been turned he should be told you're here at least till your contract runs out.weve got potentially a future captain of club and country on our hands who can go on to be one of the best centre halves in europe and I like many want him to do that playing for us not playing for Chelski or whoever. I am sick to death of this board only seeing pound signs so they can line there pockets that's all there doing imo. Where has all this bumper sky deal money gone? Why have we only spent £4.3 million pound on one player? Why has it gone quiet all of a sudden about a new ground? Why hasn't Mccarthy had a new contract offer? A nd most importantly why are we always looking to sell to the highest bidder when were told we don't have to? in saying that we've not sold Stones as yet, but I think its only inevitable we will with this board of freeloaders sucking the life outta our great club and outta me while there at it.I want to know where all the money has gone,show me the money. Rant over.

Agree2 Disagree1

29 Jul 2015 18:45:32
selling club hmm who, fellini we said no he handed in a transfer request lescott got greedy Rooney enough said have I missed out anyone from the long list of players we sold oh Arteta who most of us thought was finished
but saying all that we do need to add but who and for whom I`ve no idea the 2 players we got we wanted one Del boy and let's hope Tom can show his potential

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 18:51:14
if Stones was a product of our youth system I would be saying keep him but fact is the lad owes us nothing,

the lad had to wait for his chance due to distin's form.

(we flashed the cash and flexed our little power to get him just like Chelsea are doing now)

he was a youth prodigy before we got him and was always going to the top.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 19:32:48
And who would you like him to go to the top with? because it won't be us botn with this board running our club. ssn reporting Everton have no intention of selling John Stones and have twice told Chelski he's not for sale.Finally a response.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 19:42:33
Hardly a selling club now as gg has pointed out none of us want stones gone but realistically if an offer say 50m plus and not a penny less comes in then as a club we would have to consider but only if invested back into squad I really hope not love to keep him many evertonians at the moment seem to think we are going backwards right now but tbh I am very excited by our squad right now some top players with some ( very exciting youngsters ) comin through a lot of whom are English which is really good to see whether Martinez is the right man for job or not which I still believe he is then I think the coming seasons could be an exciting time for us blues

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 18:04:58
JimmyC, the clubs books are open to scrutiny every year. Where the money goes and who gets what is published for all to see. I can't remember when Everton last paid a dividend to shareholders but I'd guess it's a long time, so the theory that the board are creaming off the profits just isn't true. What the books will show is that it takes a hell of a lot of money to run a premier league football club and that those in charge do a terrific job keeping Everton competitive.
Some may think that now that the television money is coming in things may get better, What I'm afraid of is that it will push transfer fees up and the rich clubs will still have the upper hand.
As for our own transfers, we always do business late in the window. Trust in Roberto, we will have a competitive team to start the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 18:31:23
Good post mike

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 20:41:55
IIRC the Everton accounts also have a large bucket for "other" outgoings which have never been explained

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 13:35:20
Any forensic accountant worth his salt would find out where every penny as gone. The fact that this avenue hasn't been explored leaves me to believe that there's nothing sinister gong on. If any shareholders were suspicious of the book-keeping then they could get the accounts scrutinised. In the modern business word it's almost impossible to deflect money away from a business undetected.

Agree0 Disagree0
