Well. Niasse deal to Cardiff finally done. Loan with option for permanent deal. Hopefully opens space to bring striker in.

geoffjohno

1.) 18 Jan 2019 13:37:26
One out, hopefully, maybe one in.
Ps good luck Oumar and thank you
Big C.


2.) 18 Jan 2019 14:05:19
Agreed big c. Tried hard and handled himself with dignity but always looked like a giraffe on an ice rink. Hopefully a striker in to score some goals and push us upwards.
We just seem to be an emasculated male model atm. We look good just no penetration.

Good hard working player should do well at Cardiff just didn't work out for us.

In eds review of the day for yesterday, says Lucien Favre has left nice. I know we were linked with him before koeman came. Maybe he is on our shortlist?

geoffjohno

{Ed025's Note - who knows geoff?, i still think it will be silva but its not set in stone mate..


1.) 20 May 2018 10:06:40
I agree ed. Looks like Silva but few managers who have just left clubs include Favre and the Leipzig boss and fonseca name is not going away.
We may be surprised by who the new manager will be. Just got to wait and see.

{Ed025's Note - let the fun begin mate..


2.) 20 May 2018 17:23:22
I think Favre is off to Dortmund.


3.) 20 May 2018 18:33:27
Didn't think about that, st. So see 8f batshauyi is available or if he is off to dortmund too.


4.) 20 May 2018 22:43:23
That made no sense. Should read. Wonder if batshauyi is available or off to Dortmund.

Bit of a strange one. Lookman gone to Leipzig on loan.

Eds, given that mesa has joined sevilla, would we have more hope of nzonzi joining us this window?

geoffjohno

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


1.) 30 Jan 2018 16:46:50
Good player. Another midfielder but looks like besic is off to Boro and klassen out on loan, plus nzonzi got more quality going forward.


 

 

18 Jan 2018 13:39:08
Looks like naismith is off to hearts. Good luck to him. Was a decent player for us. Busy, annoying, always remembered for his hat trick against Chelsea.

geoffjohno

1.) 18 Jan 2018 16:42:11
Top bloke as well really down to earth wish him luck!

Well boys. The Tim Cahill derby in next round of the cup. Millwall away. Tough but should have enough quality to beat them.

Ed2. In your 'discussion' below with Pauly you mention a few things. Anyone with a brain knows we need a striker and right sided player.
Just 2 questions. You say brands should know better? How should he know? Maybe the right players were not available or fees too high or we just don't have 200mil per window as some would believe.
Also what proof of Silva not being a long term solution? We know he likes to jump ship regularly but people change and maybe he found a club he wants to stay at for longer.
Just 2 last points
Regardless of who we have as manager, our squad was never going to be fixed in just 1 transfer window. We got some positions covered last window and hopefully over the next couple we can sort the rest.
And, as you say Everton took bad advice when appointing Silva, who that you know of was available and would come to Everton last summer after Sam got sacked?

As many people said in the summer. Brands is the one we need to keep to mould the whole club regardless of the manager.

Just say congrats to yerry mina for scoring our 7,000th english top flight goal. First club to do so. Great win and let's hope to be first club to reach 10,000 top flight goals, albeit many years away that.

geoffjohno

1.) 28 Dec 2018 22:51:11
But 0 trophies since 1995. It's the little things I suppose.


 

 

26 Dec 2018 11:05:38
Come on blue boys. Let's get back to winning ways. One more goal to become the first club to score 7,000 goals in English top flight history. Be good to own a stat the reds or mancs haven't already got.

geoffjohno

1.) 26 Dec 2018 11:09:13
thats a great stat that mate would love it to be calvert lewin who gets that goal aswell, he's got the potential to be clubs all premier league top scorer given time.

Just want to give my twopence worth about our great club and game yesterday.
It was a killer but Pickford saved us many times this season, especially away to Chelsea so can't knock him too much.
Defence looks so much more settled and more quality. Coleman back to his old self. almost. Keane and mina looks solid and with strength, height and pace. Digne has been our second best signing this season. Great going forward and can actually defend very well. Just needs to improve set piece delivery a bit more.
Midfield has a bit of everything. Geuye back to his best by keeping it simple and getting tackles in. Gomes our best summer singing. Needs to make this permanent. Unbelievable and finding space and keeping possession and finding blue shirts. Siggy again looks back to his best now he number 10 role. Great at linking play. Wonder pass yesterday for Walcott.
Bernard looks ok. Bit of skill but shocking when he gets into penalty box but will get better as confidence rises. Walcott is our one negative at the minute. Looks like he doing more defensively but lost all confidence and guile going forward. First touch has become like a brick wall.
Richarlison our 3rd beast summer signing. Lots of pace and doing adequately as number 9 but the diving needs to go and I'd actually prefer him out left if we can pick a striker in January.
Plus now we got better options off the bench. Lookman, tosun, dcl not to mention Davies, Jimmy mac and others.

All in all so many positives to take from this season so far and we actually look like a team who can cause problems to any opposition rather than fat Sam and his arriva bus. It is actually enjoyable watching Everton after the dross we got served up last season long may it continue.

geoffjohno

{Ed025's Note - great post geoff, i could not have put it better myself mate, kudos..


1.) 03 Dec 2018 09:53:15
geoffjohno, good post and if I may echo your thoughts on Richarlison, my take exactly. Near enough spot on the Club are looking/ have identified a target man for January, although only provisio is didn't Mr Moshri allude to no signings in January!


2.) 03 Dec 2018 12:11:12
I agree with all that Geoff. Great post. Richarlison needs to be on left and a new striker - although I do think Toson could do a job holding it up for Siggy lookman Richarlison to run on to. I’m not knocking Richarlison but thought he had a poor game last few games and think that’s cod he is out of position. Teams appear to put both centre backs on around him and he gets no space - I think this gets him frustrated and then the diving starts.

Would like to see the following team for Newcastle and Watford

Pickford
Coleman Mina Keane Digne l
Lookman gauye Richarlison
Sig
Toson

Maybe Schneiderlin, jmac and Davies can give Gaeye a bit of a break in these games prior to city and spurs. Also Zouma should play one of the games to keep them all fresh.

I’m happy blue - would settle for 6th this season although it’s a bit crap that season would start very early for Europa Cup - I think we need Europe to keep growing quality squad happy!


Early shout but hope everyone has a great Christmas.


3.) 03 Dec 2018 18:25:40
so u would drop gomes?


4.) 03 Dec 2018 18:38:20
And play with only 10 players should make it a challenge lol.

Just a question ed. If we cancelled his contract why do we have any obligation to pay anything to his wages.

geoffjohno

{Ed002's Note - What Everton has cancelled is the duration for the contract - they are obliged to pay him still if it is cancelled. The point is, has there been a negotiation to put aside any transfer fee against the wages, image rights etc.?}

Very droll smit. We actually look good so far while big teams struggle. Who know how far we can go.
Also fred has just completed his move to man Utd so we can sign players who are active at world cup. Seatbelts on for roller coaster couple of months.

There's also plenty of good players who are not at the world cup for us to look at too. Probably best to hold on for a bumpy ride until the window closes.

Getting a little fed up of the naysayers and people ready to throw Silva under the bus after a few bad results. What is it? Cos he doesn't jump round like klopp or pep? Being a football manager is his job. We all make mistakes in our jobs from time to time. He is the manager now and it was not our decision to make nor is it our decision to remove him.

If he decides to jump ship as he has in the past then we need a succession plan. But for now we all need to get behind the players so they can perform for the rest of the season. We are blues, born not manufactured and we will be regardless of owners, managers or players. We support the club and should Always Do so, for good or bad.

Ed. Didn't Steve mandanda play for palace for a season few years back?

geoffjohno

{Ed001's Note - yes mate. Marseille wanted to gloss over that for some reason. Probably because he suffered a bad injury and left unhappily before a return after not settling in England.}

Great info ed but you say release clauses only work between two clubs in same country but if memory serves me correct arsenal bid 40 million plus 1 pound for suarez and was rejected even tho clause was allegedly 40 mil. Obviously we don't know the one and outs but why could this be rejected if it matched a 'clause'?

geoffjohno

{Ed002's Note - The Liverpool owners stepped back on an agreement with the player. For another player desire of the owners and the player become relevant - so perhaps for €xM it can be done. I would put the clauses aside. Foe €40M or wahtever if the player is cool with it and then a deal can be done.}

We all know that most players want to play for the best clubs and win trophies. Not a problem with players saying what richarlison has. It shows ambition and drive (hazard just said similar and he not getting pilloried)
I am no way deluded to think we are a big club (in history yes but not currently) so if a player thinks they should more to a bigger club then fine as this shows they are playing well for us and must mean we are getting better. We must also be recompensed appropriately which can then be used to find replacements. The circle then continues.
For over 120 years players have come and gone. Some have been good (kanchelskis, lineker, heath) , some have been absolutely shocking (madar, hottinger, kroldrup) and some have become forever woven into the fabric of our great club (Reid, sharp, Cahill, ferguson) .
The one thing that remains is the club. No player is bigger than the club and we will have ups and downs but we must support the club, regardless of who wears the shirt. Unfortunately at present we have certain 'fans' on here who just don't seem happy regardless if we win, lose or draw. Wonder if they would even be happy if we won every game and every trophy?
Plus we have to respect the eds knowledge and opinion (may not always agree with them) as they do a great job on this site. No point going on and on over a topic as it then becomes personal.
