The Ox and Walcott linked today - would you maybe take Ramsey too if we lose Ross?




10 Jun 2016 14:58:26
Hi Ed - is it just me or is it not illegal for clubs to talk to our players (or their agents) without our permission. If so surely Barcelona are in breach of the rules?


{Ed002's Note - It is illegal but Barcelona has not spoken directly to John Stones.}

How come we sold McGeady so cheap? Surely we could have got much more after the season he had?


1.) 14 Jul 2017 22:04:09
Wanted him off the books, i suppose. Expect the same for Niasse.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 23:22:02
May be a little harder for niasse. Not a lot of clubs want to give up 2 bags of wotsits and a curly wurly. Joking aside he didn't do too bad for Hull. Maybe 6-7 mill off someone.



19 May 2017 10:28:38
Should Everton maybe take Nolito?




13 May 2017 11:14:48
Tielemens agreed a deal with Monaco apparently. €21.5million.


1.) 13 May 2017 11:31:30
I hope not that is the one player I had my heart on. What a player that kid is.

2.) 13 May 2017 15:20:55
Can you confirm this Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained all along that it is nothing whatsoever to do with Everton.}



03 May 2017 12:53:09
Interested to see who and what people's favoured realistic options would be if we made 8 signings over the summer.

For me - GK (Ruffier/ Horn) , Creative Mid (Tielemans/ Sigurdsson/ Fabregas) , Striker (Modeste/ Belotti) , Central Defender (Keane/ Maguire/ Jullien) , Right/ Left Back (Trippier) , is the minimum we need.


1.) 03 May 2017 14:46:38
Belotti? Am I right in thinking that this is the same fella half the world is after who would probably cost is the amount we get for Rom?

I know modeste is having a good season but not sure on him. I'd prefer dolberg or sandro (although both of them would be hard to get) .

2.) 03 May 2017 15:59:19
Realistically I think we would struggle to get 8 signings of the quality we need in one transfer window. I also think FFP will be a stumbling block and the fact we would need sell most of our unwanted players for a reasonable amount which I can't see happening. I imagine there are some players that we couldn't give away due to their wage demands, there are I suspect other players would be happy sitting on the bench or loaned to another club that we may not be able to shift. I think we need to have a more realistic long term view of how we are going to progress and not think it will happen in the summer window.

3.) 03 May 2017 17:26:25
Belotti? I think some of you lot are losing your marbles. 85mil release clause and has better options. I like lukaku but don't see Unt, Chelsea or PSG paying any more than 60-70mil for him.

4.) 03 May 2017 22:46:02
"Favoured realistic options". Then list about £250 million worth of players "as a minimum"! Get real! Can anyone think of any team ever, including those able to offer £200k/ pw and cl football, who made 7-8 top class signings in a single window? 2-3 good signings this summer will be success.

5.) 04 May 2017 14:32:29
OK Belotti might be a bit hopeful but i did put him down 2nd! And IF Rom goes we will need to think big to replace him! Let's face it IF we lose Rom and Ross and Geri and offload Kone, McCarthy, Niasse, Valencia, McGeady, Barry? Jags? and we have Europa League then we NEED to replace these people at the very least. That was all I was trying to get across.

6.) 06 May 2017 09:08:06
Fair enough Jules and it's fun to speculate 😁
We probably will need to fill a few places in the squad but realistically were going to have to prioritise where we pay big transfer fees and where we might have to make do a bit for now.



22 Dec 2016 09:40:55
Just thought i'd put this out there - with the likelihood RK is going to axe a number of players - let's say we can bring in 5 realistic targets - which 5 would you buy and why?


1.) 22 Dec 2016 11:49:50
Personal preffences

1 schneidetlein. prem proven and was great for ronny at Southampton.

2 Michael Keane . good young centre back that's only honing to get better. Only head of van dijk due reported 40m asking price for van dijk.

3 ever banega . look at europa final last year, passed Liverpool apart. Creative and gets stuck in

4 . Kevin gameiro. great striker, fast, good movement great passers-by

5 - coretin tolisso. skilful centre mid that can pick a pass. Only young as well so could build a team around him.

No team will allow a good keeper to leave in Jan, so that and a left back (as competition for bsines) would be 1st signings in january after that look at wide attackers.

2.) 22 Dec 2016 12:51:43
I think that due to availability Schneiderlin should be our first target.

I would have Depay but only on loan as it's too big a risk for £20m+.

I would like to see Troy Deeney (he would be excellent either up front with Lukaku or with Koeman's pressing as a lone striker as he is hardworking and a bit of an all rounder) .

As for a GK, I would still put a cheeky bid in for Begovic, as he is second fiddle at Chelsea and would be available for a reasonable price. I would prefer Butland but he would be a bit unrealistic as they would be unwilling to sell and the price would be huge.

I would still like Van Dijk as well.

My list is a little unrealistic as I can't see us spending £100m in one window!

{Ed002's Note - Spartak Moscow, Marseille, Milan, Roma and Wolfsburg, in addition to Everton, have a declared interest in Depay. I would not expect a goalkeeper in January.}

3.) 22 Dec 2016 13:51:56
Ed002 is right on the goalkeeper front, I would also urge a little bit of a step back on carried away with all transfers to be honest. The only players normally available in January are (sorry but true) cast offs or surplus to requirements. Some of those mentioned are young up and coming, they will demand high wages and their Clubs will add a couple of mill onto the price, that is always supposing they are willing to let them go.

4.) 22 Dec 2016 15:06:56
Its the realistic thing that makes it difficult. I would like
Depay on loan only.
Schneiderlin as he has performed well in the PL already.
Moussa Dembele its a bit of a risk but any striker is, if are not already in the PL.
Mousa Dembele if we can get him from spurs, another box to box but IMO better than McCarthy and Mo.

If we can't get Depay on loan then i'd try to get Rashford instead.

I expect RK and SW have completely different targets though.

5.) 22 Dec 2016 17:16:09
I don’t want any players on loan. I want quality committed players. Depay is a very good player but just not utilised by United, so too Sneiderlin.

As for others, I don’t know. I’d be surprised if there are any from what are being mentioned in the press at the moment and even more surprised if we got many at all in January. I’m braced for a busy summer rather than Jan and I expect additions early in the window.

It should be so much easier this summer with no international tournaments. Koeman will also have more than a couple of weeks with the players to get them used to systems and fitness. It took until mid-September due to the Euros to get his team fit never mind used to a system.

{Ed025's Note - good post that john and hard to argue with anything mate..

6.) 22 Dec 2016 18:10:25
I'd be happy with schneiderlin, depay and lookman in January.
No point buying a defender in January, if one gets injured throw Holgate in and watch him shine.
Begovic, attacking mid and a striker in the summer, bring in Davies and Calvert Lewis if we get injuries.

7.) 23 Dec 2016 09:59:45
I don't think there is any point talking about which 5 players we would like. It's a bit of a moot point. Realistically I think 2 ins (ideally both attacking) and 2 outs could happen, I'd also prefer the youngsters to get a run Holgate and I know Browning has recently come back from injury but I'd like to see him play more too.

I want us to go all out for Dembele to be honest - he's the one that excites me. Him and Sandro could be amazing.

Apparently he's agreed to go Athletico. On to the next target.

Trippier all day long for me - great player.

Willian would be great down the right if we lose Geri. How long is Bolasie out for?

I'd rather look at Dembele, Willian Jose, Lucas Perez, Bas Dost, Dolberg, Teodorczyk - all offer more than Rooney for me.

Keane or Maguire for me - or both! Don't know enough about the foreign options such as Llorente or Pogba etc Think VVD would be amazing but priced too high. GK got to be Buckland, Heaton, Ruffier, Kalinic. One of them.

Best midfielder around not getting a regular game - Kovacic at Real Madrid. Next Modric only better (from Modric himself! )

Get Ruffier done and dusted - class keeper.

if we could get 2 of - Keane, Cook, Maguire, Reid, Mee I'd be happy.
Keeper wise I'd still like Ruffier or Heaton - Pickford price is going to be crazy.

Sell Ross and offer Sanchez a bumper contract!
