Hi Eds seeing reports we are signing young Croatian Nikola Vlasic for around £8m.

Southern Toffee

Seems to be edging close to signing, got to say. didn't see that one coming!

2.) 29 Aug 2017 08:52:50
Some Croatian chap came on here yesterday morning saying this was going to happen, hats off to that man.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 09:23:56
He was Koppite too Gibbo, a knowledgeable Koppite is a rarity.

wasnt a problem really i heard it from our mutual friend day after match in liverpool that everton were impressed you got yourself damn good player he will surprise you all.

{Ed002's Note - A whole host of clubs including Arsenal, Inter, Spurs and Chelsea have been looking at Hajduk Split's Nikola Vlasic for mopre than a year. He is well thought of.}

The lad had been talked up before the games involving us. He has fantastic reputation - was being compared Modric in the press. Another one for the future no doubt, but let's hope he can make an impact this season too. Would love to see us throw our hat into the ring for Sanches at Bayern - he'd really get the Gladys St rocking. Still looking light at the back too.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 10:49:03
yes you're right Murf a guy named Mandzo, I think I will be watching for more of his posts.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 11:12:11
Thanks Mandzo, appreciated mate.

8.) 29 Aug 2017 12:28:27
A whole host of clubs where looking at Niasse including Mourinho - Chelsea. Two sides and perspectives to every story!

9.) 29 Aug 2017 12:44:39
Yep I spotted his post and then later he had been harshly voted down. whilst all the news outlets started backing him up ;)

10.) 29 Aug 2017 15:37:05
Saw it as well, big thumbs up to Manzdo.

11.) 29 Aug 2017 16:32:28
Must have missed that, stuck down in deepest darkest Devon on hols with the family so not getting online as much ☹️.

12.) 29 Aug 2017 16:36:32
Good info Mandzo, much appreciated.

Hearing lots of murmurs about Welbeck as another target, well I do feel Welbeck could be an amazing signing played through the middle and my only concern would be fitness! Can't question his hunger and desire and I feel he would bust a gut with a potential England slot as a carrot dangling before him!

Southern Toffee

1.) 17 Aug 2017 18:29:14
Welbeck is a top athlete. Has been injured a lot, but much of this has been because he's thrown himself into games when fit. You never know how well the right kind of player will do with the right kind of players around to provide. I think Welbeck would be great in our current setup.



14 Aug 2017 17:39:58
Anyone heard about Barkley going down injured? Seen a report in a london rag down here that states he went down in pain and had to be helped off the training pitch clutching his leg.

But not seen anything on Sky Sports, anyone know anything?

Southern Toffee

{Ed025's Note - i have heard nothing ST..

1.) 14 Aug 2017 18:12:17
Hamstring according to reports.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 19:41:15
Thanks thought it may have just been the london rags stirring the pot!

3.) 14 Aug 2017 20:41:52
Red Echo now reporting Barkley suffered a hamstring injury in training today, then again they're also reporting Coutinho has a bad back.



12 Aug 2017 22:28:43
Seeing a link to Noah Fadiga at Club Brugge as the lad is only 17 is this another for the U23's?

Paul Clement states Gylfi Sigurdsson will not be in the squad this weekend.

Southern Toffee

1.) 10 Aug 2017 14:41:31
He also said that its not down to one side causing a problem, but both sides needing to compromise.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 18:01:43
Good to see that. Its unusual but nice to be reassured by the manager you want a player from :)

There’s a lot being made of the “luck” in the Watford game and scoring past the reserve goalie well sometimes it all starts with a little luck!
Plus you can only beat what’s in front of you, whether it’s a reserve goalie or not you still need to score the goals
Let’s draw a line under that one we’ve banked the 3 points and let’s juat get behind the lads for the next one!

Congratulations to Kieran Dowell on his hat trick!

Southern Toffee

1.) 28 Oct 2017 23:00:42
Listen to Mark Warburton’s (the Nottingham Forest manager’s) post-match comments about Dowell. People know how talented and technically gifted the player is, but now Kieran is realising the “ugly” side of the game - what to do when he loses the ball and during the transition phases of play.
IMHO many young players are very gifted and excel at U18 and U23 level, but the demands of first-team (especially PL) football require as much off the ball as on it. Playing on loan at a lower-tier side (especially one managed by a decent coach like Warburton) will give Dowell the opportunity to develop his game and prove that he’s ready to return to Everton as a first-team player.
The few times he appeared for Everton, he showed glimpses of his on-the-ball ability, but would then “disappear” and not influence (nor impose himself upon) the match.
Very few young players (even the likes of Tom Davies) have yet achieved a level of consistency. Just look at Kenny - he has been great at U23 level, but hasn’t shone consistently in the first-team. He needs time to develop - to be coached - and just keeping him (or any young player) in the first-team just for the sake of it and hoping he gets through risks not only the team’s performance/ result, but also the confidence of the player himself.
I’m content to see the staff responsible for the recruitment and development of the club’s youngsters (Unsworth, Royle, Walsh? ) decide the best route (staying in the U23s, or loan, or training with the first-team) for each individual. Dowell is showing the benefit of his current development path and it certainly looks like he will make it as a good player.

2.) 28 Oct 2017 23:50:23
Couldn't agree more Bobby.



03 Sep 2017 22:26:02
I was thinking over this Barkley situation and perhaps in Jan he decides to move or perhaps we keep him until the summer, he's playing with fire a bit if he has international aspirations as this is a World Cup year and he will need to be playing to break into that squad, like a lot have pointed out next summer he will be 24 so can leave on a free and no compensation due but if he's not played and doesn't go to the World Cup then he will be 28 when then next one comes round! And if he has to wait until then he may as well just hang up those international boots now which would be a shame.
The lad really needs someone to sit down and have a word with him, Pienaar would be good as he found out the hard way!
Personally I feel this was no longer a footballing decision and purely financial!

Southern Toffee

1.) 04 Sep 2017 09:32:07
If its Financial Southern Toffee he is stupid going to Spurs as they have a salary cap there and players like Alderweireld have already stated unless they get new terms they will look to leave (his agents words) so will Ross get better terms than those Everton allegedly offered? I doubt he will as that will put him on par with Kane and Lloris and therefore open the floodgates for other players to demand similar. The question he needs to ask himself is 'were will I get game time? ' Everton? Probably not a starter, Spurs? Definitely not a starter, Chelsea? Definitely not a starter, that leaves what?
He needs to hope Arsenal come in for him because he would probably get a game there as Carzola is out injured, Sanchez and Ozil are probably both off and Jack Wheelchair is always injured.
My take is our physio rang him and told him with Gibson and Oviedo already gone he was bored so needed company haha.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 14:35:18
It has been widely reported that Ross Barkley was offered a new contract by Everton, but declined to sign.
Whether the offer was a genuine attempt to keep a player that RK actually rates is a moot point in my opinion.
It might have just been a ploy to eventually get a bigger transfer fee because although he’d still leave he'd have longer remaining on his contract.
However, looking at the fees being paid for players in similar situations (e. g. Oxlade-Chamberlain and, indeed, Chelsea’s offer for Barkley) this is no longer such a problem in the current world of mind-boggling transfer fees.
I'm not “in the know”, but I wonder (not that it's really any of my business - even as a fan) about several aspects of this story;
Does the player have issues with RK (and vice versa! ) that mean the player wants/ needs to work under a different coach/ manager;
Does the player have personal issues living on Merseyside and needs to get away;
Does the player feel “down the pecking order” following the signing of other players and doesn't see the opportunity to play enough at Everton to get into England’s World Cup squad;
Does he (or more likely his agent! ) want more money than is being offered at Everton;
Does he simply feel at an age (he’ll be 24 in December) where he needs a fresh challenge elsewhere?
There are many opinions being bandied about, but surely only the player (I would hope! ) and his agent (more likely! ) know what's at the root of all this.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 16:00:48
Get rid and get over it. The lad is a div but he clearly knows what he wants. He wants Spurs. Why the hell should he sign for another club? I actually respect him for walking from Chelsea and stating the club are trying to force that move on him. As a club we probably could have handled the "kidology" Koeman tried a little better? The club have dropped the ball on this one.

Ross wants a move, he is clearly prepared to stay in an uncomfortable situation as he knows what he wants. (The opposite of the impression the fans have) Fair play to him. He wants the right move regardless of "world cup year" not that he is anywhere near the England squad at the moment.
If he goes and sits on the bench, why should you care? The same "voices" that were going nuts about the Sigurdsson money, are the ones going mental that the Barkley fee is going to be tiny now. Moon on a stick.

4.) 04 Sep 2017 17:16:28
I reckon he will be off to Chelsea in January. He is injured until then so imagine he was sent back and let us pay his wages until then.



31 Aug 2017 22:37:44
I know we all wanted loads of deadline day signings but come on guys we've had an awesome window lots of improvement, let's get behind our team we have some amazing talent and it's time for them to shine!

Southern Toffee

1.) 31 Aug 2017 23:19:15
ST I didn't want loads I just wanted one, a goalscorer that apart, we have had a fantastic window and like Moshiri said we just have to be patient while the team gels and as long as we can stay in touch with the top 6 until January then I can see us being more attractive to the better quality strikers although e may have to pay over the odds to get them in Jan.
we have got what we have got now no point in dwelling on it let's get behind the team starting with Spuds.



28 Aug 2017 23:57:52
Kieran Tierney would be the perfect successor for Baines and can cover other positions as well. if only we could get him. are you listening Mr Koeman and Mr Walsh.

Southern Toffee

1.) 29 Aug 2017 09:49:40
Not going to happen they let walker go because they have him.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 10:36:45
I think you may have a Tierney and Trippier confused there Trueblue, Tierney is at Celtic, bit of a dream to get him but here's hoping.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 11:51:06
Sorry Ed, my mistake these posts are coming thick and fast, struggling to keep up especially when some of them are stupid.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 19:42:57
What are you calling stupid? The post or that you didn't read it correctly? 😳.

I wasn’t complaining about signing them but must admit to being puzzled by it. And that we didn’t sign a striker. We just seem heavy in some positions and light in others.

Sigs should definitely be playing the 10 role, he can feed the balls for DCL or Niasse and even Sandro they all have the bit of pace to worry a defender
If we want to accommodate Rooney maybe he needs to go on the wing but we know that won’t happen as he doesn’t have the pace. Time to be the impact sub for Rooney!

I have to say I think Dyche would be the shrewd appointment we have to start walking before we run and I think that would be a solid appointment to then build from.
Further to that though from discussions with Ed2 I feel he is right that our structure needs a review as it appears disjointed and having someone in a Sporting Director role that Walsh and the new manager would report up into would make sense to me, not sure who would fill such a role and what criteria they would need match I don’t know but hopefully it would help everyone pull in the right direction.
