Morning all
Can somebody explain why is it that when we buy a player the figure quoted is the full figure including add ond i.e Pickford was £22 million and 30 with the add ond and it is always the 30 that is quoted but when we sell Lukaku it is the 75 million that's quoted i.e without the add ons?

{Ed025's Note - i really dont know ginger..

Nice point the ginger. I noticed that but honestly didn't think much of it. But you're right.

Its because the media don't want to upset the buddies by highlighting the fact that they are potentially paying £90M for a fella with a first touch that so poor his second touch is a throw in add to that he is about as good in the air as a midget playing basketball, also I feel its because Pickford is English and the media like to hype up our own players and set them up for a fall.

{Ed002's Note - I think it is embarrassing that some fans have turned on an ex-player - certainly will be embarrassing for the club.}

ed02 can't really turn on a player who we didn't really like in the first place and unfortunately Lukaku has the first touch of a 10 year old and his hold up play is bettered by a 5 year old but boy can he score goals and in the modern game you need more than goals to your game he will be under a massive microscope at UTD much more than he was at us and if he has 2 bad games he will be dropped also I can understand why lots of fans including myself hope he fails for the total disrespect he showed our club by constantly talking about moving while on international duty but hey he has gone we move forward and I for one won't be wasting any more time talking about him so ED how's our sharkpod coming along or isn't it worth doing now as we have done most of our business.

{Ed002's Note - You might want to go back and read some of the posts from when he was scoring goals for Everton.}

Ed, I have always been critical of these elements of his game and not just because he is not an Everton player any longer.
I wish him well in pursuit of the top platform he thrives and feels he deserves and credit were credits due he is a very good goalscorer, but that is it.

I will always speak highly of Lukaku. It is embarrassing. especially as he is still getting digged out after he has gone. Sad. Some make the point of his goals last season, even trying to claim that they were not needed or welcome. Only because the teams below us were inept at closing the gap to us in the last 10 games (everyone, us included on holiday) i'm not sure anyone at the club would be happy if his goals were taken away. Madness.

{Ed025's Note - i enjoyed his time with us 76, im looking for sandro now to take up the mantle and be our new focal point getting us even more goals mate..

My God, Everton fans were known for their class, but most of you guys seem to have lost it, . Your transfer window has been good but you guys are way ahead of yourselves if you think you have replaced lukaku, still need a proven striker like giroud.

{Ed025's Note - we will get another but sandro could be the one everybody is jealous of next season..

rom has been a good signing for us and I whish him well but to be fair I did have a little chuckle at bluegrays post but didn't think it was out of order or ment to be, could be wrong though.

16 Jul 2017 13:58:37
Exactly Ed025. The future is bright, let's not waste it by moaning about the past. Sandro is going to be a revelation and then it will be Lukakwho? (i'll get my coat)

16 Jul 2017 14:07:42
Banter sa90 and no malice was meant by my post, we were always a stepping stone for him and that's a reality, other than goals he doesn't bring much else to the field and I feel we will be better this coming season by not relying on him and actually have a forward who can trap a ball, play with his back to goal, and win headers and all for a small fee compared to what we got off United for Lukaku.
I don't ever have a go at players past or present in malice and if any readers feel I did then I apologise, to my fellow Evertonians and Ed002 but I draw the line at apologising to trolls on our banter site.
