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

4 words. Sums up Lineker.

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.

Ed002 any particular reason why you think Rooney would make zero sense and Ferguson would not provide a good medium or long term solution?

sa90

{Ed002's Note - Rooney has no experience or knowledge and would no more than pandering to fans. He is all but a half-wit. Ferguson works well and provides the link between the club and those arriving. He is motivated and will help out the team - but he is not an experienced tactician.}

Yes he did speak well of him, but he started by saying that he was part of the Digne deal which gave me the impression if Digne had gone to another club he wouldn't have gone for him.

Looking at Benitez body language and what he said I very much doubt we will get anyone else in hopefully I'm wrong. He also gave the impression that El Gahzi was not a player of his choosing so it looks like agents are getting their way again.

Alfar1963 A lot of the fan base didn't want Benitez and thought it was an unacceptable appointment others thought it was not a problem as long as the team improved. We would all probably agree that on the transfer front we have seen an improvement. On the playing side our results speak for themselves. Benitez has used the injury issue continually as an excuse which to be fair is quite is a reasonable response. However, while we have had numerous injuries he has set up the side very defensively which hasn't worked as we ship goals and lost matches due to his lack of tactical awareness or reluctance to change what he thinks is a winning formula. I personally don't have a problem with his defensive football as long as we don't loose. Yes he may well be the man we need to sort the club out but at what cost relegation? I don't think so! So unless we start picking up points and winning soon then he will be in an untenable position.

Richarleson has been one of, if not our best performing player over the last three seasons. As for falling over theatrically then he is no worse than Vardy, Salla, Kane and Zaha all players that I would personally love to see at Everton. As for a 70m price tag I don't think many clubs would offer anywhere near that under the current climate.

Yes the man has made mistakes but it looks like he is trying to turn things round and he has invested a lot of money into the club. If he could just put some ear plugs in when his agent friends come knocking and the strategic review shifts power to where if is actually needed then I think things may turn out okay after all.

Not a bad selection Brett I'd be slightly more conservative and replace Gordon with another CM I just think we will need more bodies in the middle of the park to start with then bring Gordon on when we need to change things.

On the tactical awareness front If supporters can see what's going wrong on the pitch and work out how to change tactics to affect the game then surely a coach with the amount of experience of DF should be able to as well? Or are we talking about pre match analysis of opponents and assessing how to negate their tactics without affecting how you want to play the game including unforeseen variables which would be more technical. Again if a manager has the right technical team around him this shouldn't be to much of an issue. For me its not the tactical ability of the managers that hinder performance but their inability to be pragmatic with their methodology and be humble enough to adapt if things aren't going well. I don't know, but I would hope that this is all looked at during the attainment of qualifications which I believe DF has completed to the highest level.

Seems even stranger when he was sacked by the current owner and is in charge of a national team with a pretty good chance of doing well in a world cup year. Add to that he took a great defence and turned them into a slight better version of what we have at the moment, just imagine what he could do with our current crop.
