Question in the current environment would you be happy if the club signs CA's older targets on season long loans with Brands buying younger players for the future. Then after the unwanted players contracts expire at the end of season expire the club reassess the transfer policy.

I would take that all day long, after the last few years we need a proper plan in place and it's a killer but we need to be patient.
Carlo has always said that he will sign Good players and that they might not always be young but they will be Good.


2.) 26 Aug 2020 13:22:46
I'm happy, personally I'm sick of "building for the future" or buying unknowns or youngens with potential, as let's face it, this has been the plan for years and years and it hasn't exactly materialised has it.

I woukd like us to get some proven quality players in and actually enjoy going the game and watching us play some decent football,
I can't take another season like last year.

One for the Ed's. Do you know if we are in any talks that may lead to bringing in a new left back. Silva has been playing Robinson quite a bit in pre-season so I have a feeling that he is being assessed to see if he is good enough to play as a back up LB.

sa90

{Ed002's Note - I cannot tell you about any talks just now but I understand that interest of Everton and others remains for Marvin Plattenhardt. I have mentioned others that may also be options.}


1.) 22 Jul 2018 14:58:25
Arent we in for Digne?

{Ed002's Note - Sure maybe, but Digne is very much a defensive left back rather than a wing back - and perhaps not really what Everton need.}


2.) 22 Jul 2018 15:35:25
Would be mice to have some defenders who can defend.


3.) 22 Jul 2018 15:32:33
Thanks ed. I thought playing a front 3 with only 2 CBs would lessen the need for a more attacking playerlike Plattenhardt. But i'm not that familiar with Digne to be honest and agree that we still need an outlet from our full backs. With a front 3, when the wider players tuck in you do need an outlet. Silva does like an attacking and expansive style aswell which points to a more forward thinking full back. Not disagreeing with you in any way ed just exploring my opinion, admittedly based on a lack of knowledge :) Has there been a player profile on Digne please ed?


4.) 22 Jul 2018 20:58:54
Thanks ed appreciate the info.


5.) 22 Jul 2018 22:48:26
Yeah I agree Ed he’s not he most confident person going forward from what I’ve seen. Looks panicked on the ball which is strange for a Barcelona player but if silva and brands want him let’s get behind him.

If anyone fancies a laugh take a look at the emerging whispers on sly if we get half the players we are being rumored with we would have the best squad in the PL if not Europe. As you said though Ed its nice to be in the situation for a change.

Hypothetical one here if Zlatan goes to MU do you think Rooney would be surplus to requirements would we be his first port of call.

sa90

{Ed025's Note - i would doubt it sa, he will play one more season at utd then end his career in the MLS i suspect mate..


1.) 26 May 2016 18:30:48
Rooney definitely playing at Utd next season. May leave come Jan but he'll start August at Utd.

{Ed025's Note - it would come down to money i think sa and that would make it a non starter, my feeling is that he will play one more season with utd then end his career in the MLS mate..


1.) 26 May 2016 16:05:56
If we are looking to offer £200 million wages to Hart, ok paper talk, but I would not rule Everton out of signing Rooney as his wages could be met, call me a romantic but I have a gut feeling, Rooney will be coming back to Everton.

The club is in a difficult situation if they let everyone know their targets then prices will rise and pundits will give their opinions prior to signing which may have a detrimental affects on the transfer. Alternatively but not letting everyone know their transfer targets then the media can com up with speculation that frustrates supporters as they don't necessarily support the idea of signing particular players. Until we sign a player every thing is speculation so why get worried about it, it probably won't happen anyway. If you look at our latest signings within the club they are all quality players or players with potential. I trust the club not the media.

All Premier League teams are in that position- often a player just goes to the highest bidder, or for the highest wages. And why not - it’s a job after all.
In terms of managing the squad - the club may well be quite far down the line of getting players out which means we can develop the squad. Securing squad players, on lower wages, could enable us to make 2/ 3 marque signings. Not every player needs to be a guaranteed starter - we need players who can do a job in the cups, cover injuries/ suspensions etc. Let’s judge the signings once deadline day comes.

{Ed025's Note - i will have the squad player shout JB, but there are a lot of nay sayers out there looking for a stick to beat rafa with and andros fits the bill perfectly for them mate, in my view we needed a bit of a decent signing to appease the doubters and it would have gone a long way to smoothing the transition of the new manager coming in..


2.) 19 Jul 2021 16:01:56
Don’t disagree, Ed, mate. Hopefully that big name signing that we can get excited about is just round the corner.

{Ed025's Note - hopefully JB but the only names at the moment are Gray and Townsend mate, lets hope things change..

Interesting interview on youtube Toffee TV with Guillem Balagué about Benitez. There is an obvious bias as Guillem knows Benitez personally but it does give you an insight into the Benitez and what he is about.

1.) 02 Jul 2021 16:49:43
Alternatively Rory who is a Chelsea fan/ Youtuber offers a slightly less favourable opinion on him in his video with Ped and Baz lol.


2.) 03 Jul 2021 10:58:22
Just watched it and the video he mentions when Benítez was Chelsea manager against Brentford. blimey, I had no idea how Chelsea fans felt about him.

Saw this and thought yep this sums up football rumour journalism for me.

GARY LINEKER SENDS 3-WORD TWEET ABOUT £13M PLAYER LINKED TO EVERTON

"Dumfries is an athlete".

4 words. Sums up Lineker.


2.) 28 Jun 2021 17:58:35
I met him last week in the lake district. An absolute gent.


 

 

04 Sep 2020 10:43:19
Hope the delay in the signings is due to the Club wanting to announce all 3 at the same time. On another note we are now being linked with Lemar pretty sure this will happen as you just can't have enough left wingers in your squad.

sa90

1.) 04 Sep 2020 10:59:38
Thought Lemar was RW, could be wrong.

{Ed002's Note - LW or AM.}


2.) 04 Sep 2020 11:34:37
Well that would be a colossal waste of money then. Unless Iwobi is going the other way, we can dream.


3.) 04 Sep 2020 12:41:47
Just swap Iwobi for Messi.


4.) 04 Sep 2020 12:58:23
Yeah but then Barcelona would have to pay us the difference.

More importantly people are presuming that if we sell we will reinvest in the squad. With the state of the club as it stands it may be the case that the majority of the cash is used to offset our P&L obligations. How would everyone feel if Gordon was sold for £50M and only £10M was used to find a replacement. The other £40m kept in reserve just in case we need it at the end of the season should we not reach our expected final position in the league and therefore be down on expected revenue.

The problem with selling DCL is we can't get a replacement of sufficient quality as currently players with similar ability don't see EFC as a viable option. So we would either have to pay over the odds for a mediocre player or risk a youngster. Some fans need to realise that we are not a club that can attract the best players as we don't offer Europe and the club is in a financial mess.

Gents don't bother falling into the click bait trap we've been linked to so many players already we would would have a completely new team and have spent another £500m in the process of bringing them in. I am presuming that until we sell we won't be bringing in any players that are not either loans or free agents. Its a case of wait and see as the majority of free agents won't be available until July and the majority teams won't be back until then as well with Manager assessing squads before agreeing any loans. We can't do anything other than get frustrated at the speculation anyway so why bother.

Why is the 3 match of the season a must win and why can't we afford another loss?

Maupay wasnt on the list!

Milik
Batshuyai
Che Adams
Guiressey
Diang
Brereton Diaz
Broja
Semenyo

Ed025 is your info it could be one of the above?

Eds025 answer was Yes.

Great post B-T and reasonable logic FC89 however with only two'ish weeks of the transfer window open if we were not expecting to sell AG then we probably won't have looked at who we would try to get to replace him. I personally don't think we have enough quality in the squad at the moment and we would be reducing the the quality by selling him. KT and FL are really trying to increase the quality of players at the club this window selling AG may derail what they are working on as they would have to find another player with short notice. Plus AG is also a reasonable contract and trying to find a player of similar quality in such a short period of time may mean we will need to pay over the odds with both the purchase fee and wages. So for me I would keep AG this window and take the risk his market value goes up not down. If we want to turn into a club that flips players then we need to bring up the overall quality in the squad first and identify our future targets and get them in prior to any sale. If we don't then we will be constantly fighting relegation battles.

So every time a player sale is suggested in the media they have to come out clarify their position just so we know? Do you really think clubs would sanction media statements every time there was the slightest bit of interest in a player? If a club has stated they do not want to sell why should any player need to have to then clarify they don't want to go. They can clarify if they want to go by putting in a transfer request.

We need forward by the end of the transfer window having one for Saturday would be nice but it isn't the end of the world. I'm sure the KT and FL are trying their best to bring some one in but these things take time. I would rather they did proper due diligence to get the right player than just buy anyone for the sake of appeasing a few worried fans. Management trying to please the fans got us into this mess in the first place and its not going to get us out.
