Benfica saying they've signed Gomes!
How many GKs will be on the bench in our next game? Surely we must be getting a few in?

JBtoffee

1.) 31 Aug 2021 19:42:31
What goal keepers😂.

{Ed025's Note - love it mate..


2.) 31 Aug 2021 19:56:04
5 goalkeepers and 6 left wingers?


3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:10:02
Am on the bench against burnley.

If you want to read into our friendly line up, Kean is definitely off. Not even made the bench. Worrying that DCL couldn't make the squad. With Richy still in Tokyo, essential that we sign another forward, and soon!

JBtoffee

1.) 07 Aug 2021 13:00:40
Same old same old, 1-0 down, after 15 minutes with 23% possession and 23 passes.


2.) 07 Aug 2021 13:10:09
Richarlison missed pen for Brazil in the final. hope they go on and win and he doesn't have his confidence knocked by it!


3.) 07 Aug 2021 13:19:43
3-0 after 30mins?


4.) 07 Aug 2021 13:24:04
Absolute disgrace, the executives at the club need sacking for some of these players we have signed in the past few years, this squad is the worst I can remember, even in the 90s we at least had players who would fight for the shirt. This is going to be an awful season judging by today. Pathetic performance from all 11 players on the pitch in the first 45.


5.) 07 Aug 2021 13:27:37
Who’s bright idea was it to play this friendly?


6.) 07 Aug 2021 13:41:07
At least he he now knows what he has got.


7.) 07 Aug 2021 14:22:38
3rd preseason friendly in and you want some of the board sacked? That would really help the cause wouldn't it 🙄😂.


8.) 07 Aug 2021 14:32:56
So its better to move forward as we are?


9.) 07 Aug 2021 14:35:26
I can understand the frustration. Rafa has probably the most difficult managerial job of his life trying to mold this lot into a good footballing side. I don't believe that the previous managers have been all that bad apart from Big Sam but nobody so far has been successful, hopefully Rafa will be the first.

{Ed025's Note - we all do mike, but its one hell of a challenge mate..


10.) 07 Aug 2021 14:38:59
It's a friendly, DG, and we haven't got a recognised senior striker in the squad. Did you expect us to steam roll a good Utd team?
But you say you want certain members of the board sacked, so please explain how that would help us 'move forward'


11.) 07 Aug 2021 14:58:34
Gbamin and Kean were pinged by the NHS app. DCL has a minor toe injury. Bad result still.

{Ed025's Note - i know it was only a friendly hugo and we had players out, but it did highlight just how thin our squad is mate..


12.) 07 Aug 2021 15:29:26
I didn’t know there was such a thing as a friendly game against Man U.


13.) 07 Aug 2021 16:57:08
Its thin and generally bad I think, Ed. We’ve been in dire need of a reality check for a while I think. Far from where we think we are or think we deserve to be.

{Ed025's Note - very much so hugo, time for them all to step up to the plate mate..


14.) 07 Aug 2021 17:15:51
How long have we been saying that though, Ed? Seems since Moshiri came in. Too scattergun. Least when we were punching above our weight, we had that to fall back on, now we’re just bad. Top to bottom.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i could disagree hugo..


15.) 07 Aug 2021 21:07:49
9 conceded in last two matches against Premier league team and that's with the opposition declaring and Ancelotti and Benetiz in charge both universally agreed to be top managers/ tactician, no money, record signing in hiding and likely to never play again. Main striker injured, Ricky half way across the world and will be in need of a rest sometime soon. That said will still waste a fiver on top four finish because you never know!


16.) 07 Aug 2021 22:46:12
Some over-reaction to a friendly game I think. It's main purpose is to give players some game time; no-one got injured, 20 subs each, strikers not playing, nothing riding on the game, youth players given a chance to play in the first team, some of them for the first team, at Old Trafford as part of their development. Rafa will probably have made his mind up about Delph and a few others if he hadn't already, maybe even an element of putting players in shop window.

We already knew the team needs some radical surgery and today's game doesn't change that: Priority: RB, then CF if Moise goes (likely) , CM/ AM (2 if James goes) , CB if Yerry goes, possibly another RW but Gray and Townsend actually looking decent. Fingers crossed we can get them in by the end of August.


 

 

01 Jul 2021 22:36:16
Reports about that we're in contention to sign Ben White. Hope so, he's class.

JBtoffee

1.) 02 Jul 2021 00:09:09
Lol. More chance of getting Barry White.

{Ed0666's Note - hell be your first and last your everything


2.) 02 Jul 2021 06:15:48
Although he is a very good player are we really in the financial position to spend 50m + on a player in a position we are well stocked in? . There are much more pressing positions we need to strengthen first.


3.) 02 Jul 2021 06:34:06
Depends who may be leaving I guess.


4.) 02 Jul 2021 09:29:32
He's played RB but not in the Coleman mould in my opinion

50m is steep, although I can see him going for that figure but, who of our current CB, are going to leave and get anywhere near that amount

We would be using a lot of our budget in an area we are not currently bad in

Depends on FFP, Moshiri and what we can spend.


5.) 02 Jul 2021 10:03:26
Ed0666, 😂😂😂😂 you're going to have trouble beating your reply in the future! Tickled me that did 😂.

{Ed0666's Note - mate were showing our age maybe we should just keep quiet 😂


6.) 02 Jul 2021 13:10:28
😂😂😂 still getting me every time I look at it mate, me mrs is looking at me like I've just kicked the cat or something!


7.) 02 Jul 2021 13:10:28
😂😂😂 still getting me every time I look at it mate, me mrs is looking at me like I've just kicked the cat or something!
Never change, ed066, we love you just the way you are 🙄😂😂😂.

{Ed0666's Note - stop showing off now potato I’m out of Barry White puns although after this year my Mrs is calling me the walrus of love and that’s not because I’ve got a voice like Barry White’s either 😂


8.) 02 Jul 2021 13:18:55
Brighton’s third best centre back, we don’t need another centre back unless Holgate and Keane leave, other positions need to be prioritised.

{Ed0666's Note - White may not be world class but he’s better than holgate and Keane now and is potentially very good.


9.) 02 Jul 2021 13:40:33
That’s wonderful but we have no money to spend as is, so any funds we do have need to be spent on positions we desperately need such as a right back, winger and midfielder. In fact centre back is the position we need players in least except left back.

50m to sit on the bench and only play when Mina is injured? No thank you.


10.) 02 Jul 2021 15:12:22
That's the only two that spring to mind for me, ed066 😂😂 I'm sure there's a joke to be made of your last reply but I won't go there! 😂😂
Swan, I agree it's not a position we need to strengthen but maybe rafa is planning on shaking up that position. Possibly one or two on the way out?

{Ed0666's Note - I’d say Rafa is not far away from being a walrus of love 😂


11.) 02 Jul 2021 16:10:30
White would walk into are starting 11 imo Swan. Mina is probably off as well.


12.) 02 Jul 2021 22:37:06
Spend what we like, then take a little fine for going over ffp,

If the cap fits with the Euro breakaway, then why not chance our arm.

Strike while the iron is hot, and have a top lawyer on stand by.


 

 

19 May 2021 11:33:57
What looks almost certain is that Moise Kean will leave for a decent fee.
With Walcott, Bolasie, Besic off the wage bill, we should be able to invest in the squad. Hopefully one or two from Siggy, Iwobi, Bernard, Gomes will also free up space in the squad.

Batshuayi, Imbula, Lundstram, Bertrand just a few available on free transfers. Does anyone see any value in any of them?

JBtoffee

{Ed002's Note - Batshuayi is not available on a "fee transfer".}


1.) 19 May 2021 12:23:57
I honestly think are priority is to try sell the 4 players who you have mentioned mate even if we take a loss in profit least the wage book would be down if Marcel can recruit few players doesn't matter if there in the championship or even league 1 with potential to be good players than happy days.


2.) 19 May 2021 12:28:46
My mistake. it’s his loan contract that’s ending. He’s hardly done the business for Palace anyway so we should be looking elsewhere.


3.) 19 May 2021 12:29:21
Agreed, need to cut your losses sometimes. Although.


4.) 19 May 2021 12:35:46
Agreed, have to cut your losses sometimes. Those players are not likely to improve, are stopping younger players from coming through. Personally, I’m happy for there to be a balanced approach to recruitment and the age of players, but ideally, the majority would be young enough to improve with the squad and have a potential sell on value.


 

 

11 May 2021 14:26:23
Rumour in the press this morning that Carlo is keen on Juan Cuadrado from Juve. Another Colombian. Fits the bill in terms of being an attacking threat - bit on the old side at 33.

JBtoffee

1.) 11 May 2021 16:20:38
Another sick note!


2.) 11 May 2021 18:22:32
Tbh the only 33 year old I’d want at Everton is Messi.

Difficult to put a positive spin on the lack of signings today. Regardless of the good results and performances up to now, our squad is short by some margin and injuries/ suspensions will impact us hugely.
We've got rid of plenty of players and reduced the wage bill significantly, but not replaced them. If we were going for players we couldn't afford, then other players should have been targeted. Really poor from all at the club.

JBtoffee

1.) 31 Aug 2021 23:28:29
Totally agree JBT. If we haven't got the money we needed to get a loan deal for a RB. We also needed more numbers, but not tried hard enough to replace!


2.) 31 Aug 2021 23:57:46
agree but this is nithing to do with rafa. Csnt help feel he has been sokd down the river.
1.2m spent
Never said this before but brand needs to explain himself.


3.) 01 Sep 2021 07:57:51
It feels like the club is starting to be run correctly again. You guys may be kicking and screaming at the lack of signings but we've made 5. Yes we need an RB but we have cover pretty much everywhere, got rid of a lot of deadwood which in long run will serve this club well.

Our wage bill was/ is horrendous for a club with our income and we csnt keep ignoring that fact. Finally we are addressing it.


4.) 01 Sep 2021 08:28:08
Disagree JB. We have shifted a few out and brought 5 in for less than 2 million. As some have said before, maybe the performances of the likes of Iwobi, now playing under a manager who gets a tune out of him, made the need for other reinforcements less important. At the end of the day none of us fans have a clue what goes on behind the scenes at the club but there must have been a need for the window to be how it’s been.

I think our squad is a strong one when all are fit but agree we could be short if some injuries hit us. Maybe, just maybe, we now have a proper manager who is going to stick around for a while and is actually going to get these clearly talented playing to their potential. I for one am happy with things at the club.


 

 

31 Aug 2021 12:33:26
Just saw a tumbleweed roll past.
Very quiet out there. Hello? Mosh? Have you lost your chequebook?

JBtoffee

 

 

20 Aug 2021 10:11:31
I expected a fairly busy week in general on the transfer front but it's very quiet everywhere.
Just keep reading about the same handful of players time and time again.
Seems to be a stand off with clubs and players holding out for best deals.
When it comes down to it, I still expect a few more to leave and a couple to come in.
Focus turns to Leeds now - won't be an easy game, hope the boys approach the game positively and attack that shaky Leeds back line.

JBtoffee

1.) 20 Aug 2021 10:49:04
I think we will end up with Longstaff, a right back and possibly a forward.

I think Kean, James and Kenny will leave

Delph and Gomes out - us paying a chunk of their salary possibly.


2.) 20 Aug 2021 11:08:21
I’ll reserve judgment on Longstaff for now. Man U were sniffing around a while back for big money so you’d think there’s a player there.
If we signed a decent young right back and another exciting forward, I’d be fairly pleased with the business.
Maybe even one or two loans if we get all those players out.


3.) 20 Aug 2021 11:22:56
Think the quoted £10m for Longstaff seems quite a large fee for a player in the last year of his contract who hasn’t actually performed that great under Bruce at Newcastle.

I know Rafa raved about him when he managed Newcastle so maybe he’d be more suited to Rafa managing him and we’d see a better player - however with our ffp plight I’d rather the money he would cost be spent on a rightback not another midfielder.


 

 

12 Aug 2021 15:45:05
Most hilarious rumour of the summer - Insigne to Everton. Unfortunately, very little chance of it happening.

JBtoffee

1.) 12 Aug 2021 16:38:59
Didn’t we say that about Carlo and Rodriguez?


2.) 12 Aug 2021 16:52:10
If Insigne is available, there’ll be more attractive options open to him than Everton.


3.) 12 Aug 2021 17:04:14
He’s 30! . It would be a strong no from me unless it was a nominal fee.


4.) 12 Aug 2021 17:15:37
We did ginger and it turned out that with paying them obscene amounts of money they were happy to come and go through the motions. More of the same doesn't really float my boat personally.


5.) 12 Aug 2021 17:35:19
He’s improve our squad. End of story.


6.) 12 Aug 2021 17:37:14
I agree TD.

Just pointing out that as far fetched as a rumour may be they could actually happen like last window.

We want players who want to come to us because they see us as a decent team to play for - we need to stop with the final pay cheques some players have previously come for.

Jar.


7.) 12 Aug 2021 18:00:59
J toffee, at what cost? This is what we have done since Moyes, is pay stupid wages to people who take the money but don't perform on or off the pitch.
Yes with this owner we have potential, but we are wasting are chances by buying thoughtlessly.


8.) 12 Aug 2021 18:07:21
Yea spot on that mate.


9.) 13 Aug 2021 00:14:53
I understand the views held by what seems like most on here. We’ve trimmed the squad and the wage bill, but we do still lack quality. He’s quality. I can’t say he wouldn’t be a flop - but Rafa has coached him before and therefore likely knows him pretty well. I for one would be excited y the prospect, albeit very unlikely. Let’s get Longstaff, Buta and Rondon instead and see how we get on ay?


 

 

08 Aug 2021 10:35:01
Have read a lot of posts in the last 24 hours. I can understand the reaction from both sides.
With coverage as it is these days, it's hard not to read into selections and results, even if it is only a friendly.
Of course, if we win on Saturday, it'll all be forgotten.
The most worrying thing is that the squad looks thin. With everyone fit and available, our first 11 is capable of winning games. It is not realistic to expect our best 5 or 6 players to stay injury free.
We need to add quality to the squad, quickly. Competition for places, and the ability to rotate is essential for modern teams - we saw the effect on Dom at the end of last season.

There’s a reason Man U spent big on DVDB.
Fernandes keeping you out of the team does not make you a bad player. Still not sure he’s a Benitez player.
Still hoping we can sign a free cover for full back.

Jebbison’s gone on loan. Patterson can’t happen.
We have no back up left back.
Any rumours aren’t new, just repeats from past few days.
Need some movement, and quickly.

We would have recouped a few from PSG last season too. Even if we break even, it’s better to have a bad apple out. Unfortunately, Richy may be going sour too.

Already looking forward to the first home game under the floodlights. Positive that we can keep the run going against Burnley.
