I can't believe how impatient everyone is being. I don't think I've ever seen a club make four or five signings the first week of January. Do people want 11 Niasses in the team?
I'd rather the money was spent correctly rather than go mental on average players like Sissoko. While I doubt we have £100m spare I'm sure there's money in the pot for the right player.
While I don't understand a lot about how transfers work and the money in football. I do know that a big contract is another large outlay that most people don't factor into the cost of a player. Bear in mind (if reports are to be believed) we could be paying Niasse and Kone £50k each per week to play in the u23s. A few more of them and Moshiri's billion will be stretched to cover our losses.

Couldn't agree more Blue Tommy

I'd be happy with two further quality signings in January and an early exit for Senegal.

Didn't we go mental and try to sign Sissoko on the last day of the summer window?
09 Jan 2017 15:02:26
We did Wakka. Aren't you glad we missed out on him now? Disrespectful, overrated and overpriced.
09 Jan 2017 15:12:24
Yes, wakka. Think that's the point Blue Tommy is trying to make.

listen guys one thing you learn to be with Everton is patient, I'm sure everything's in hand and we will get the right players at the right price eventually.
Just not Sissoko!

Isn't this Sissoko the same one as the swap deal with Barkley?

Bad example Wakka. We panicked as we ran out of time and ended up going for Sissoko. He ended up using us and there was no time to do other deals.
I'm hoping we've done our homework this time and we get these deals done. Otherwise we will end up with a rather unhappy manager and may end up this summer after a new one again. I don't think Koeman has a lot of forgiveness in him.

Wakka, my reading of Blue Tommy's post is that he's extremely patient and that's what he's getting at. When he says only sign players that we need.

Apparently, more Everton fans are impatient than patient judging by the agree/ disagree on my original post. They are probably the same lads who only got a season ticket when Moshiri joined, flew the 'Bill Out' banner and boo Barkley's every touch. I love being a blue but sometimes I'm embarrassed by the behaviour of some of our so called fans.

I also agree with that Blue Tommy.
