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.

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.}

Just been reading the echo on line and they go into the implications for city’s ban the premier league are looking at the finding and a deduction points is the most likely outcome probably next season, they have just changed the rules and such activities for ffp breaches are expulsion to league 2, I know it won’t happen but how funny if it did.
In all seriousness I think it would be outrageous and hope for city’s sake they don’t.

Big C

1.) 15 Feb 2020 22:43:52
Not sure what you’re trying to say Big C.

Don’t think it’s funny at all, understand rules have to be adhered to and punishments for breaches given.

However all the talk currently around us as a club in regards to potentially breaching ffp regulations is quite worrying. If we don’t sort ourselves out as a club then potentially we could also be possibly looking at expulsion to league 2 at some point.


2.) 16 Feb 2020 08:50:33
Gingerdan no chance. Everton are spending over the percentage allowed (over their income/ means) , someone has taken their eye off the ball. Any punishment would not happen till after next season, if at all. Everton are working to getting their house (fiscal) house in order.


3.) 16 Feb 2020 09:06:14
City have been doing this for many years and have been under investigation quite openly for years. They've been fined on occasion and though they'll appeal, this isn't a great surprise.
PSG will be next.

We have been given a timely reminder not to follow the road we've been on any longer. We are a million miles away from City and their overstepping of the rules. I'm sure we can lock away the cheque book for another window and everything will be fine if the worst case.
I'm sure FMs eyes popped out of his head @ Cities reprimand and will be throwing away the brown envelopes (joke) etc and instructions to be much more aware of FFP will be followed. Blessing in disguise for us and I'm sure we will adjust our transfer policy and finally start to use the buying skills as well as the selling ones of Brands. I hope anyway.


4.) 16 Feb 2020 07:49:31
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.

{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.}


5.) 16 Feb 2020 14:49:20
Article saying other clubs are run in far worse way than us and are running the authorities that govern UEFA, and same clubs will benefit with Man City's elimination from European competitions and their need to come back in line with FFP rules, selling players reduced transfer budget and wages.

I know city tried to cook the books but they shouldn't be judged and tried by the teams they competing against and who will benefit from their demise.

FFP article


 

 

14 Feb 2020 19:45:21
Hi Ed’s what’s the implications with regard European places following city’s ban from Europe competition please.

Big C

{Ed002's Note - The FA can use their discretion as always but will have tea and biscuits and eventually decide that it will be as usual excluding Manchester City. By the time they do that there will likely be an appeal underway which may or may not cause a delay in the ruling until next season. As for the FA Cup and League cup, places in the league will prevail if Manchester City win.}


1.) 15 Feb 2020 10:39:42
Hi Ed, what are your views on the severity of Man City’s financial conduct compared to ours? . Thinking about the “naming rights” deal with USM, is what Man City have done any different or is it just they’ve done it on a completely different level and a UEFA felt there was no other option, could we be in the same boat if we don’t straighten out our finances? .

{Ed002's Note - It cannot be compared to Everton's naming rights deal. Everton's problem relates to living well beyond their means, nothing else.}


2.) 15 Feb 2020 11:05:46
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.

{Ed025's Note - im not sure how it works bic C, but its too early yet as city are appealing so no decisions will be made until we get the outcome of that mate..


3.) 15 Feb 2020 13:12:14
Ahhh so we’re just overspending, we’re not trying to circumnavigate the rules with some creative accounting.


4.) 15 Feb 2020 17:37:57
As a club we will need to balance the books with some player sales but we will be over on the 3 rolling years for the premier league profit and loss limit (105 million) .
Well. Unless we post a positive profit for this financial year (2019/ 20) . We are currently +30, -13, -112 (-95) Current estimates (take with a pinch of salt) are - 30million for this year which means we will be -160.
Will we be punished? Most likely. But there are other factors that could change that but they are difficult go through and it all depends on this financial years figures which run until June 30th 2020.
Usmanovs 30 million will be included in this years figures and I would expect that 30 million figure to be important when the accounts are released.


5.) 15 Feb 2020 18:38:36
Gibbo, City’s naming rights, the majority of the money came from the City owner, Usmanov has no association within the Everton board so on that end of the scale, any future sponsor or naming rights will be fine, as long as Usmanov stays away from becoming an owner or board member at Everton.

As Ed pointed out, it is our wages and living means that is the big concern.

This should be rectified when Barcelona pay us £80 Million for Niasse, tongue firmly in cheek.

transfers can happen quickly mate and not always none to the press, we know brands keeps his cards very close to his chest. remember signing bernard absolutely out the blue. and quite frankly i prefer the surprise signings! however i would'nt rule out the club not signing anyone before fridays deadline.


2.) 28 Jan 2020 19:25:19
I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't sign anyone, work with what we have till end of season then see what aces are up Ancelotti's sleeves. Unless someone he really wants becomes available at the right price.

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.

Just looked on sky bet transfer specials to sign before 31/ 1/ 20 and we are now favourites to sign Everton Soares at 2/ 1
I know it’s sky and betting but hopefully a clue also Lorenzo Insigne is favoured to sign for us

Oh to dream.

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.

VAR review of the head butt and awarded Liverpool the premier league title,
I was a little surprised Worst Ham weren’t awarded a penalty and Holgate sent off.
In all seriousness I thought VAR would be a good thing but it appears the powers that be have conspired to make it a mockery and created new laws to justify its existence with this microscopic offside analysis.
