Well if the mornings rumours are true, we will have soon signed half the Barcelona bench of defenders and added to that perhaps one or two of Manchester United defenders. I don't know all the details of FFP rules and won't ask Ed002 or any of the others to explain them. Just to say some balancing of books will be needed if all the rumours are true. Digne, Mina, Rojo, Smalling, Lindelof? What the?

I can’t see us signing more than 2 defenders Degs, probably more like one.

I think the theory is Mina and one of the 3 from Man U. Long way still to go with Mina, just hope it gets done and United sign Auderweireld so we can sign one of the others. Who would you fancy?

Is Mina that good as a defender? Everyone's wetting themselves over him because he scored 3 goals in the world cup. I know he's tall, but is he really worth the hype (not to mention the fee) ?

It's frankly about improving what we have. And Mina and all the others linked (yes even Smalling) are a massive improvement on Jags (the only senior left?
Even (worse case scenario if rumours to be believed) Jones Smalling are much better than we have.

It'd be pretty sad if we pulled out and missed the boat. Ended up going into the season with what we have.
Sorry but Kompany and Ramos aren't going to be wearing our colours next weekend. I'm not really sure what some fans want.

We've missed out on the young CBs with all the promise. Mostly acted like a stunned turtle last summer and watched the Maguirs and Mawsons etc. All get their big moves. Some for a lot less than most thought. Begs the question what was going on last year. Now we have dissenting voices moaning about Gibson etc who we've also now missed out on, apparently without showing any interest. Will only have ourselves to blame when we end up losing Mina at the last second to the French. And unable to secure a Man Utd player because of fans displeasure.

Keep it relative.

We will have to wait and see.

It’s only relative if we were interested in signing Maguire, Mawson and Gibson. The club has its targets, which we aren’t privie to. So we only miss out if we tried and failed. And whilst we’re all going on about why we are leaving it until now to strengthen the defence, I seem to recall last summer we were all going on about replacing Lukaku.

Let’s give the club a break and hold back on the negativity until after the window shuts and give them every chance until then. Who knows, they might well get the targets that they want.

What's said here is "banter and rumour"
Not truth and fact. Otherwise its just be a press release with no reply options.
I can remember reading a fair amount of? From you Toffee ace. Get off that soap box.

We have been balancing the books. Williams, Klassen, Rooney, Mirralis all on big wages. Bolasie too will go.

06 Aug 2018 16:31:51
It might hurt some of our feelings but we have to remember where we are as a club and how we are perceived by potential players.

we are coming off the back of a disappointing season, we are under a new management team and we can't offer the prospect of European football.

We got Richarlison mainly because he has worked with Silva and likes his management. We got Digne after a couple of will he, won't he weeks and because he wants to play regular football and has been convinced of the project

Mina looks like he is holding out to see if Lyon will up their offer because they can offer European football. We might not think Lyon are a bigger club but they are playing in Europe. It's a big pull for a player rather than take a gamble of Everton achieving European football next season.

We have to realise these things and appreciate the conditions Silva and Brands are working with.

In the end I think Mina will come and I think we will get a couple more in as well. I agree with MTBTY that Mina, Lindeloff, Jones or Smalling will strengthen what we have. I think Richarlison and Digne have already improved our squad.

Let's see how it pans out by Thursday. I think we will be pleased but let's not think this is a easy job for Silva and Brands

Haha myteam. It must be banter as I recall in one of your previous posts that you were going to tune out if the window doesn’t go your way. Well it still hasn’t because your still moaning. But your still hear so unfortunately that was banter too.

And for the record every time anyone comments on hear, including you, is effectively getting on a soap box.

I wouldn’t disagree with most of that except please not Jones he would not improve us!
