Does anyone know for certain if Rom will be leaving this summer? I know there are plenty of links to other clubs, but they seem to have other targets too, so is it possible he could stay another year?

If he goes, i think we need to take careful consideration about his replacement. Everybody is clamouring for a big name, huge money replacement but i'm not sure this is the way to go.

I base this on Rom scoring 25 PL goals this term, but i believe this was only in 17 matches. I love the guy and want him to stay, but i feel we need a forward who scores roughly the same but over more games, someone who can score in 20-25 games. Wouldn't this result in more overall points? Naturally i can't take into account contributions like assists and creating space by pulling defenders out of position, but we need goals in more games, not goal sprees in one match.

My plan for a more successful season would probably be 2 consistent strikers, each capable of 12-15 goals each. We can still play the lone striker set-up which works pretty well, but then hopefully get an equal goal output in a greater number of games. Ok, i admit that a 12-15 goal striker is not someone who is going to get world accolades like Harry Kane does, but for the benefit of the team as a whole it just makes sense.

On a side note, and i know he looks to be massively out of favour and being shown the door, i would like to see Deulofeu given a fresh chance but played as a CF. With his pace and trickery skills, i feel he would thrive much more than being used as a Winger. I make a hesitant comparison to Cristiano Ronaldo in his style, clearly not as good but with more experience and if he bulked up a little, he could become a very regular scorer. I think i remember him playing the role in pre season and nabbing a few goals, and his International career for Spain U21s i believe he plays the CF role, scoring roughly every other game, 32 games 16 goals. I've noticed a few times that forwards with great pace always do well in the EPL.

The young man city kid would do for me. He's no different from when we took Rom. as long as he puts the ball in the net then that will do me.

Spurs finished 2nd not because Kane scored 29 goals but because there were others who weighed in. We need goals from other attacking options. So the point of Lukaku is a valid one but we're looking in the wrong direction. Ali, Son, Erickson all scored well. So for us to be more competitive next season to get CL we need the goals to come from other areas of the pitch.

I would like us to keep Lukaku and sign some attacking midfielders as I think we have quality in defensive ones.

I couldn't agree more.

Spot on TA. We definitely don't need anymore holding mids. Siggy and Klassen for me.

Worcester, yes Chelsea mate and Roms agent, Ronnie and every man and his dog knows, only way Rom will not go will be other teams not paying the asking price and not down to a change of heart by Rom.

If Rom is still an Everton player come September 1st I will swim the English Channel with Pavarotti strapped to my back.

{Ed025's Note - i hope he stays now baz.. :)

Baz, you do know how impossible that is. Not the swimming but who's strapped to your back.

30 May 2017 00:07:12
Could get in a lot of trouble getting hold of Pavarotti to put on your back 😳.

Sure do guys, it will not happen though, simply because Rom will be away, so the impossible was firmly tongue in cheek to the fact it is not possible for me to be able to do the feat for obvious reasons, not a chance Rom will be here come September. Might be a shock but I am sure I overheard Rom mentioning Champions league football hard to believe I know but not sure if others have heard this strange rumour flying around.
