Hi Blues

I know he is a controversial choice and many people don't rate him but i think Jack Wilshire could be worth a punt. I say this though only on certain terms which i don't even know if they would be possible.

We take him on the season long loan but with the following deal - a termination clause if he gets a serious injury. If there is a loan fee, this gets decreased in value if he misses a certain percentage of matches through injuries, so perhaps pay half in advance and the remainder based on the games he was available for throughout the season.

I am very dubious of his injury record but i am wondering if maybe he is not committed as much as he could be at Arsenal. He thinks he's a golden boy there but by being told he has to go on loan could give him a real kick up the ass that his future is on the line at last. He needs to perform well this year to either stay with Arsenal or at least become an attractive proposition for other teams he would want to join and so this season long loan could see him play to the best of his ability and whoever gets him could really benefit from this.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see arsenal agreeing to that worcester, by the way it is jack that has asked to go on loan not arsenal mate..

I had the same kind of feeling about Balotelli, try to get him on loan with a behaviour clause. All it takes is one gamble to pay off and it can gain you 10 points a season. PS I know Liverpool wouldn't do that but surely some players are worth a gamble. What's better? Paying £13.5m for Niasse?


2.) 31 Aug 2016 00:48:52
I think in most cases when someone on loan sustains an injury they return to the parent club for treatment depending on how serious of course.


3.) 30 Aug 2016 22:56:43
Thanks Ed, i had no idea Jack asked for the move. I assumed it was a club choice due to not playing plus being stacked in that position. He must be confident he is going to stay fit this year if he wants to move for regular game time, else it just seems pointless asking to go.

{Ed025's Note - i think he feels he needs a break worcester and needs game time, he has not been getting that at arsenal plus a lot of his problems have been personal ones created by the crowd he knocks around with, the smoking and drinking issues has seen him fall lout with the hierarchy at the emirates and a move away seems the logical solution mate..

Hi all,
I have a friend who likes to claim he's "in the know", but personally i take it very much with a pinch of salt. we all know people who claim they're connected but can't back it up. I mostly ignore all of his so called info, but he did say something that for once sounds feasible.

Apparently RoKo is looking for a replacement for Barry, with Barry set to take a lesser game playing role in the team. His age now, and amount of bookings does to me make sense for the manager to be considering options.

It got me thinking about who is actually available, will it be a defensive midfield enforcer or someone with a touch more class to make attacking play happen? I can't actually think of a player who would add much to us as a team, at least not one who would consider us anyway, as let's face it we're never going to be signing the Iniestas of the game.

Anybody heard something similar or who has realistic options of who we could convince to join? Thanks as always.

wanyama frm southampton, good strong midfielder.


2.) 18 Jun 2016 17:21:52
Looks like he's set for splurs.


3.) 18 Jun 2016 18:18:24
You don't have to be in the know to see that it's pretty obvious Gareth Barry's getting on. Wanyama, Strootman, Erdevisie players we haven't heard of.


4.) 18 Jun 2016 18:30:13
Witsel far better player don't rate wanyama we need two good midfielders, keeper left sided winger and another striker two if Lukaka goes. My team ideally would be: Forster, Coleman, stones, mori, bainsey, delefoue, witsel, winjaldah, Brady, milik, Lukaka.


5.) 18 Jun 2016 18:40:14
We already have a player who could fit that role Worcester. It is not cast in stone but this player could be better in the midfield were his defensive mistakes would not be as much of a problem as in central defense and his desire to drive forward could be an advantage.


6.) 18 Jun 2016 18:51:42
its pretty obvious worcester, that barrys days are numbered.

Hey all,
I heard a rumour that we were showing an interest in Nemanja Vidic, but now it seems Evans is our guy, (although there has been a lot of denials about wanting him). Does anyone know if the Vidic thing ever had legs or was it just someone teasing me?

Also it appears if we are offered 32m plus for Stones then we will do a deal. Very disappointing!

Finally, is there any further info regarding Ospina, Nathan Dyer, januzaj or even our tenuous link to Raul Meireles?

Thanks

WorcesterEFC

1.) 18 Jul 2015 09:53:47
I posted the rumour last week but believe it was a tentative enquiry


2.) 18 Jul 2015 19:08:10
If we allow stones to leave and replace him with evans then Martinez has clearly lost the plot.


3.) 22 Jul 2015 11:17:22
Mick626, doing that for me, would be an imminent sack-able offence. But he has said he has no interest in signing Evans.

What a fantastic result today. Congratulations to the whole team who put in a really solid performance of teamwork and composure.

Also, i was made up by the attitude of Rom today. When young Lookman was about to come on, Rom was straight over to the sidelines and looked to be giving him a warm welcome, and when he scored, Rom seemed genuinely pleased for the lad, really congratulating him. Has he taken him under his wing so to say. Anyway, i thought i would bring this up because he doesn't always seem keen to work for the team but this was especially praise worthy.

WorcesterEFC

1.) 15 Jan 2017 17:14:11
Read an interview with lookman and he pretty much said Rom had been brilliant with him and has made him really welcome

Hi all,
A couple of questions if anybody can help out.

So we can all see Niasse is an apparent flop, does anybody know why exactly? I have barely seen him play to make a personal judgement and he came with a very high reputation from the Russian league. Is it a case that during training he is absolutely awful and not worthy of a chance, a bad attitude or that he wants to do a Bosnich. coast along without ever trying just to cash his salary?

Also, Is there any possibility of us making a move for Batshuayi? Again I've not seen much of him but i like the game time I've seen, he seems a creative player with a good eye for goal and is young enough to develop immensely. I just think that he is the perfect replacement for Rom when he almost certainly moves on.

WorcesterEFC

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea why Niasse has not done well although to be fair it took him time to settle at Lokomotiv Moscow. Everton has never shown any interest in Batshuayi.}


1.) 10 Jan 2017 19:45:08
Thanks Ed002, you're a star! Always seem to reply.

I'm actually secretly hoping that he needs to get used to the Prem, and that this move to Hull gets him enough game time we can all make a real judgement. I know its remote but he may surprise us

{Ed002's Note - He has not really had a run of games and the move may well do him good.}


2.) 10 Jan 2017 20:31:36
To pay out 13.5 if a true figure and given our known caution, someone must have watched him and not just once. Not one for conspiracies or secrets but Martinez reluctant to use him and Koeman not at all, does wonder make. I also wish the lad luck, perhaps Unsy could spread the light.


 

 

03 Aug 2016 20:23:35
Holgate looks a promising player, confident and tactically aware so far. With ageing and development he could be a solid defender.
I like the formation of 3 cbs and 2 wing backs, i feel it could be a succesful set up. I now see that our defensive targets aren't necessarily Stones replacement if this is how Koeman intends to play.

So looks like Walsh is our DofF, how about everyones honest thoughts?
Personally i'm not too sure, he did a great job last year in identifying Mahrez, Kante and Okazaki (deliberately leaving out Vardy as i hate the fella) , but prior to that what success did he have? i'm not being sarcastic there, i genuinely don't know how successful he was in earlier career.
I can't help wondering if all the pieces fell into place in one magical moment and those players turned out to be gems, rather than having the proven consistency of Sevilla's Monchi.
I genuinely hope he is a great addition to this wonderful clubs staff, but some impartial input from Eds or people with better insight would be appreciated.

On a side note, i read in the rags about us chasing Koulibaly which has been much gossiped about on here, but had to laugh at the quoted fee - £30 mil. Surely he will cost an extra 50% on that.

Take care all.

WorcesterEFC

{Ed003's Note - Vardy was sought after by several clubs so no praise should be given there,that's all I have to add.}


1.) 21 Jul 2016 06:42:39
I'm not entirely sure how having a DoF will work out, it's not something we have done before, but I have faith in Moshiri et al to restructure the club to our benefit. With regards to Walsh, I believe he was pretty successful at Chelsea identifying players like Drogba and Essien. Not too certain how well known them two players were at that time though.


2.) 21 Jul 2016 09:19:10
He has found both hidden gems and also successful big signings as well, he identified both Drogba and Zola whilst at Chelsea and was part of Newcastle when everyone was raving about their recruitment.
He was and is extremely highly thought of by most in the game.
Koeman has always worked with a DoF so this is not a short term plan this is getting the best available manager we could attract and also doing the same with the sporting director role.
Personally if that is all we do this summer apart from a keeper then I am happy with that and the direction the club is going.


3.) 21 Jul 2016 12:14:42
Totally agree with your last paragraph Svenny.


 

 

13 Jul 2016 23:04:18
Hey all,
I was wondering if anyone can offer input on my defensive thoughts.
Stones may or may not be off, and we are actively linked with replacements if he does. What does this mean for the future of Jags? My personal opinion is that our standout defender last season was Funes Mori. I have no doubt he will be a regular this season and so with Stones/ Stones replacement most likely getting the regular spot do you think Jagielka will be content fighting for a spot or being used as back up? I can't help but feel he will look for a move as he has a lot to offer still and i'm sure clubs like Stoke, Southampton, Leicester etc would all be viable options. If i'm wrong and its Mori who is the backup then i'd be gutted because he would certainly generate interest from clubs and be off like a shot, more of a loss than Stones leaving.

WorcesterEFC

1.) 14 Jul 2016 00:22:30
Think with jags maybe what the other lot did with carragher as I would imagine he would be great to have around the squad even if not playing as much. If stones stays I think he could move forward a bit to play the defencive mid postion so if that's the case we rob still need maybe 2 centre backs.


2.) 14 Jul 2016 08:46:09
Its not a case of wanting to have him around for his influence though is it, i imagine he will want game time and so therefore move on.
And i think there's no way at all Stones would become Def Mid, he knows his future is a commanding CenterBack, why put that in jeopardy by taking on a new position. I think he would only consider that role if at a club like Man City with much more competition and so giving himself better chances of making the squad.


3.) 14 Jul 2016 12:24:37
Commanding centre back is a player that takes no crap no risks and puts it when needed in row z with the attacker going there also people fear and respect them. John stones is not feared at times he is played on as he can make a mistake and other teams know this. Also it's not a new position if he likes to run with the ball he likes to pass the ball (not successful all the time) but can still tackle that is like Eric Dier of Tottenham is doing he was a centre back that we had on loan 2 times a few years ago but he liked to run with the ball out of defence and try and pick a pass. There is a chance that stones can do this is what I was saying that we can put him in a different postion to what he is in at the minute.


4.) 14 Jul 2016 15:38:01
I don't believe that's an acurate view of a commanding centerback. Yes, at times that's the right approach, but look at the best cbs in modern football right now, Pique, Ramos, Hummels, Bonucci etc. They play the passing game, are composed and will play the ball out of trouble rather than just hoof it. Are they not commanding?
In theiry yes he could play def mid but i don't see it at all. How many cbs have ever changed to that position, its rare and generally unsuccesful and i 100% don't see that happening with Stones either.

I think desperation is creeping in with Newcastle selling Sissoko. Willing to accept 5 installments of 6mil and making this news public seems like a last ditch effort to get offers in.
Is there a possibility that Benitez want on a crazy spending spree assuring the board he would balance the books a little by selling Sissoko? He always seemed like a manager who loves to buy tonnes of players and i think he was sure he could play hardball and demand 30mil after the Euro's performances. I have a feeling a move will happen somewhere but at a much lower price.

I would hate us to take 40mil for Rom as i think in a couple of years he could be worth so much more, but at present time it does sound a realistic price given his mixed form.
It is a profit on him though and he certainly helped us out with his goals so in the overall picture he was a great signing for the club.
As I've mentioned before though, could we replace him with anyone better? I think we should go all out for Breel Embolo, he reminds me so much of Rom, young strong and confident. With a little patience and development i think he'll be a real star.

Dear Swan. How on earth can you slate Barkley and McCarthy? 2 of our most important players in my opinion! Next you'll be wanting rid of Lukaku or Deulofeu - "Oooh we've been offered a bag of peanuts, i'll drive them there myself", - a familiar barb eh. Show some support for us for once will you!

@Lance Link. why are you always so obsessed with these financial dealings? loans taken, 'missing' funds from years ago etc. Businesses from time to time need to free up money, and with guaranteed income coming in, why not tap into it a year early. It doesn't harm the club to do this, and i'm sure whatever the reason is, it makes sense. It seems to me that you're full of negativity about my beloved Everton and quite frankly you're the kind of fan we could do without. I bet you're itching to start some campaign or go on a demo to criticise us, and it just makes us look like a laughing stock (ie the 20 something fans staging a protest a couple of weeks ago, whittled down to just 7 fans after a smattering of rain) If this is the best a splinter group can muster up then get a grip and realise you're not the voice of the fans, just a pain in the ass.

ROBBO05 you win jackass of the year for that! Being linked with a player doesn't make it true. Newspapers say anything they want, rumours come from idiot fans on Twitter etc and snowball, its generally just nonsense.
As for holding to account our new Manager, Owner and DOF for not signing enough players, you're being a fool! Are you going to start a petition for new manager or organise pathetic fly overs after possibly the shortest reign ever?

Are you serious? We have brought in Stek, Williams, Bolasie and Gueye. Why does it matter if we make more money than we spend? The hierarchy can't just click their fingers and demand that so called big name signings join us. Quite simply we are not an attractive enough proposition! - I love Everton as much as anyone but i'm a realist who knows that we need to improve our league position before better quality will want to consider us. I don't want us signing mediocrity just to appease fans who want a whole new squad every window.
