The echo on line saying we’re being linked with Bale and Ramsey, whatever next🙄.

Big C

1.) 01 Apr 2020 01:08:24
if it was today i would laugh, BUT it was yesterday, WTF.

2.) 01 Apr 2020 11:49:08
Obviously it’s a quiet time with real football news so making stuff up.
Both on roughly £400,000 per week so I very much doubt we’d be able to afford their wages particularly as we’re running the risk of falling foul of ffp already.

Bale - to me doesn’t seem to be the sort of player we need, admittedly great when at spurs but since then has chased the money and his form has dropped off. Injuries haven’t helped but if he continues to play golf while so called “injured” you’ve got to question his passion for the game of football - even if we could afford him would be a no from me.

Ramsey - for the right price would take, think was underrated at arsenal not sure why they kept Ozil over Ramsey. Would bring some much needed energy to the middle of the park and would happily see him replace Sigurdsson.

3.) 05 Apr 2020 16:09:51
I love little Bernard. He gives his all and battles like a warrior despit being considerably outmuscled and towered over by practically everyone. The skill he shows at times astounds me, and if he was a touch bigger then he would be a phenomenal player.
I suspect we may be looking to move him on purely because of his vast wages affecting us, is it around £300k a week he earns?

{Ed002's Note - It won't be anything like that.}

4.) 05 Apr 2020 17:54:18
Ah of course, my error. It was the rumoured wage offer to Ibra wasn't it, which we all thought was absurd at the time for being so far beyond our structure.



31 Jan 2020 22:43:49
Lossle goes out on loan, which must mean Virginia is back up with Stecklenberg
Sorry about spelling.

Big C

1.) 02 Feb 2020 17:14:02
What an absolute waste of wages. Why did we get him in then?

2.) 02 Feb 2020 19:08:32
Might be CA's decision, Smit, maybe he doesn't rate him as highly as the last manager did.

3.) 02 Feb 2020 21:36:19
The last manager didn't play him though. Might as well stuck with steklenburg and saved 6 months of an extra wage.

4.) 03 Feb 2020 23:08:23
Huddersfield will be paying his wages whilst he’s on loan.

5.) 04 Feb 2020 07:40:48
But we will have been paying them for the last 6 months since we signed him which I think is what Smit was alluding to.

6.) 04 Feb 2020 15:49:30
Yep a waste of 6 months wages for absolutely nothing.

7.) 07 Feb 2020 13:09:55
Wasn’t Stek ready to leave in the summer. Looks like we got him in too early.



27 Jan 2020 17:21:39
Three more names into the frame being suggested that we might be in for via Smarterscout are
Samuel Chukwueze, 20 striker for Villarreal
Maxwell Cornet,23 from Lyon
Isaac Itanga,19 from FC Norfsjaelland
Please excuse spellings don’t know if there is any genuine interest from Everton just an article I read while scanning for any info to get excited about and it passes the time.

Big C

1.) 27 Jan 2020 20:23:06
I would not get too excited, as covered on previous posts, we are very close to our ffp cap, chances are we will bring Vicenco from Inter in, but have a feeling with no out goings likely, may have to either loan any others, until we can offload a few in the summer and then sign the others in the summer.

Could be wrong and maybe any of the Ed’s can clarify this.

{Ed025's Note - i think your spot on bignev..

2.) 27 Jan 2020 20:53:18
Think we will save a few quid in the summer as I think niasse 80k Martina 60k and baines 60k (guess) are all leaving when their contracts run out so that should give us a little breathing space.

3.) 27 Jan 2020 21:18:29
A lot depends on who goes out and a lot can happen in the last few days of the window. If Niasse goes too, we’d need another forward.

4.) 27 Jan 2020 21:44:15
I cannot see anyone taking Niasse when they can get him for free in the summer, nor will he bust a gut to a move when he can pick up a big wad just warming the bench and coming on late on In a match to dof his cap.

5.) 27 Jan 2020 21:44:27
JB - why would we need another forward if Niasse goes? It’s not as if he’s any good, doubt we’d miss him, could probably play the toffee lady up front and would be better.

6.) 27 Jan 2020 23:31:00
If Baines leaves, surely we would have to replace him?

7.) 27 Jan 2020 23:41:48
its not in the echo.

8.) 28 Jan 2020 00:00:29
Because we’ve already loaned out Tosun and both players made the bench in recent matches. If DCL picked up an injury, we’d have a problem.

9.) 28 Jan 2020 08:08:14
Yes Pierre we would have to replace baines but the chances are he would be on a lot less than baines is which would free up some wages.

10.) 28 Jan 2020 09:09:22
I wouldn't be surprised if we Bainesy was offered an additional year at reduced terms. It sort of makes sense in the position we are at with FFP. Unless there is a reasonable up and coming player in the U23 youth setup he would still be a reasonable back up for Digne even at his age.

11.) 28 Jan 2020 09:59:35
happily see baines here for another year, it delays the need to buy another left back in the summer (another position fulfilled so we don't have to spend more in the summer) we can then go full throttle on a cb and rw.

12.) 28 Jan 2020 12:01:38
Personally I'd be surprised if we didn't offer Baines another year, seems like a no brainer to me.

13.) 28 Jan 2020 14:00:05
Not had much game time this season Baines, but I would say this season only, the games he has played in he has played well, Digne has looked out of sorts, I would look to give Digne a rest and give Baines a few run outs And certainly give Baines another season, until we get our ffp more favourable.

14.) 28 Jan 2020 16:29:09
Offloading even in the summer some of our overpaid and underperforming squad is something we have had difficulty in doing over the past two years.

15.) 28 Jan 2020 16:41:21
If DCL got injured I would rather see Holgate in attack than Niasse. But not Pickford, he doesn't seem to know where the goal is.

16.) 28 Jan 2020 17:12:19
Can't we sell an option on the contract renewal for our toiletries to Usmanov for £50m?

17.) 28 Jan 2020 17:36:33
To be honest. I can see Baines leaving and going somewhere he will start every or most games as it will likely be his last, maybe somewhere he will be player coach.
Personally think we missed a trick with Robinson by selling him without a buy-back clause.

18.) 28 Jan 2020 18:43:08
Still digesting that we are paying Niasse And Cuco almost half a million of month between them. Out of interest I wonder how much our wage bill this year is for players who have played less than 90mins in PL or are on loan and we are still paying (ie Sandro)

19.) 29 Jan 2020 09:49:15
Baines definitely another 12 months and a pathway into the coaching setup for me. Proper servant who could have (and maybe should have) taken a big money move back in his heyday. Total respect.



14 Jan 2020 18:51:34
Echo reporting Denise Barrett Baxendale has said that USM have signed an option on naming rights for Bramley Moore Dock Stadium.

Big C

1.) 14 Jan 2020 19:04:05
I've heard that too today starting next season for 10 years £750 million, that's to pay for stadium me thinks.

2.) 14 Jan 2020 20:57:23
The deal is 30 million for first dibs on naming rights.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 09:12:10
30million just for first dibs, basically its a very clever way of getting 30million of usmanov for nothing.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 09:24:42
Has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing before paying 30 mill just to have the option of talking about having naming rights as I haven't.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 13:01:57
eds? is this a " backdoor "way of injecting money into the club to offset someway the possible FFP structure?

{Ed002's Note - No. The club have simply sold future rights on the stadium. The FFP issue remains regardless.}



13 Jan 2020 23:01:12
Jarrod Branthwaite signs for u23 s on a 2 and a half year deal.

Hi Ed’s I’ve just read a report that Everton are in discussion with Swissex (spelling ) to sponsor the shirt this is a CBD company there CEO Alki David has said it’s not a cannabis company it’s a health and wellness company, he wanted to sponsor the Nou Camp naming rights but Barcelona turned him down . Is there any truth in this not sure how I feel about this if it’s true.

Big C

{Ed002's Note - This will be SwissX - I don’t know of what is happening with Everton but it true that they spoke with Barcelona about sponsorship. There is nothing to get you stoned in CBD, it is a legal by product of hemp that has qualities often associated with relieving pain and anxiety.}

1.) 03 May 2020 09:26:42
Think we’re looking to finish highest in the league.

2.) 03 May 2020 09:46:56
Ok thanks Ed, we’ll have to wait and see, happy if it’s health, but I suppose any health company must produce some legal forms of stuff that gets abused by others, morphine given for pain relief is an opiate etc, just don’t want negative images being created of our club getting associated with the illegal use of cannabis and the damage it can cause to peoples mental health when we’ve done so much work to helping people who suffer mental illness.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with the use of cannabis - legal or otherwise.}

3.) 03 May 2020 10:35:11
I use hemp cream for dry skin. Hemps fine and been used by companies like bodyshop for over a decade.

4.) 03 May 2020 15:22:30
Swiss Medicinal Company do organic cannabis LOL.

5.) 03 May 2020 19:55:29
I will eat Ed25 underpants, if it is not usm for shirt sponsors, cancelling the current contract with Sportspesa this Summer months ago says they already have something lined up.

This latest one is a bargaining to justify a deal with uncle Usmanov, should the Premier league come sniffing again.

{Ed025's Note - that could take you quite a while bignev, i have put a lot of weight on since lockdown mate.. :)

I remember watching Drenthe when he first broke into the Dutch squad pity he was an idiot.

29 Apr 2020 13:46:14
Just while there little else to do what about players that we’ve signed and wish we had them at their peak.
So although he never played for us we did sign him when Southall was injured as back up for Bobby Mimms
Pat Jennings
Then there’s
Paul Gascogne
David Ginola
John Collins
Samuel Eto Can you think of any others.

Big C

1.) 29 Apr 2020 14:11:22
Richard Gough. He was very good for us, imagine what he would’ve been like had we signed him at his peak.

2.) 29 Apr 2020 16:05:58
Kenny Samson was a good player at his peak.

3.) 29 Apr 2020 22:06:29
After Big Nev, we struggled to get in a decent replacement for years. I'd liked to have seen Nigel Martyn sign a lot sooner than he did, felt he was the best we signed in that position for a very long time. It would have been good to have him for a few seasons before we did actually sign him.

4.) 29 Apr 2020 23:34:12
Nigel Martyn. Gary Barry. Andy Gray. but I have to say I think Richard gough wouldve been a club legend if we got him at his peak. what a player for us he was!
Wouldve loved to have seen Gough and keown together.

5.) 30 Apr 2020 10:58:24
Louis saha.

What about Paul Power.

8.) 01 May 2020 18:47:55
Cuco Martina.

Fantasy team on those we’ve been linked with and current squad and loans only difficulty is right back with the uncertainty of Sidibe so I’ve gone with Coleman

Coleman Holgate Menghalles Digne

Theres better out there carlo will find a good 1.



03 Mar 2020 07:35:28
I have a few questions
If De Gea catches Siggys shot does VAR review the two footed lunge by the Utd player,
Take Siggy out of the situation and does the dubious goals panel award the goal to DCL when De Gea is moving to save it and Maguires deflection wrong foots him and changes the course of the ball
Why is Maguire there if not to block the shot whether or not he succeeds that is his purpose for being there the fact it hits is heel is immaterial if he stops it with a more deliberate action so does that not change the phase of play
I might be talking bollocks but it appears that the decision by VAR is being justified by the premier league rather than saying actually we got it wrong .
The reason Mr Ancelotti got sent off for asking the ref to explain why is because the ref didn’t know the answer only that it was offside and it was the only way to get rid of him .
In fairness to the on field ref and assistant they got it right it was a goal.

Big C

1.) 03 Mar 2020 09:00:40
I agree that onfield ref got it right and gave a "goal" but I thought VAR only overruled if there was an obvious error from the ref. The fact that many pundits and even ex refs have different opinions over whether it should've stood surely show it wasn't an obvious mistake by the ref so why did VAR overrule?
VAR is destroying the live game. Last minute winners against Man U are what people pay to go the game for! It's crazy that the fans live experience of emotions is being tempered by VAR reversing decisions and I think that's true for fans of all clubs. I don't know a true fan who thinks VAR is a good thing - let's go back to good old days of refs making decisions even if it means we will have to put up with dubious Collina type judgements again and again. At least we can celebrate given goals again properly!

2.) 04 Mar 2020 02:29:31
Where I think VAR is going wrong is it seems like the on field ref abdicates his responsibility for the decision to the ref in the studio.
In Rugby the ref talks to the video ref and explains what he wants him to look at and gives his view of the incident. Replays are shown on the on-field screen and the 2 agree on a decision but I think the on-field ref would have the say if there ever was disagreement

There's no evidence of this happening in VAR and we, the fans feel cheated as the on-field ref doesn't seem to challenge the guy sitting comfortably in the studio.

Needs some work FA.

It’s just rumour at the moment but we did agree a new deal with Umbro however the rumour suggests we will pull the plug due to the lateness of the kit release . Hummel are just a rumour at this stage.

I was just passing on the information, as I understand it and I’m sure Ed 2 will correct me if I’m wrong we haven’t breached ffp because sponsorship money isn’t coming from an owner . City did something along those lines with the money coming directly through the owner instead of though a subsidiary company. All we’ve done is buy too many players on high wages we haven’t breached ffp.
So the only thing I was saying was potentially funny was if City got moved to league two and the that would cause for them . Once we offload Niasse, Martina and a few others we are fine.
Also as I understand it mr usamanov is transferring his ownership of some of his companies to family members and those companies become the sponsors if he joins the board.

Big C

{Ed002's Note - (a) The club will have breached FFP spending rules this season. I have explained this before. (2) The money from Usamanov will have to pass the test of whether it is market value for the benefit he gets. On the face of it is not. (c) You seem to be confused about FFP and perhaps should drop the subject.}

Sorry if I’m being dense but in the scenario that city finish in the top four and win the Caraboa Cup this season. Does that mean that 5th becomes a champions league place 6th the automatic Europa Cup, and 7and 8th are potentially Europa cup places if the FA cup is won by someone in the top 6? I hope that makes sense and apologies if I am being dense . Thank you.

I don’t know how many time this has been said by ed2 but the stadium finances have nothing to do with squad funds, the ground is being financed through different sources whereas player purchases come through club generated funds . I think I’ve got that right no doubt ed2 will correct me but that I believe is the essence of it.
