Did we put a bid in for tielemans ed? I'm hearing he's signed for Monaco which is a shame.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained this on a number of occasions - try the search engine.}



26 Mar 2017 11:09:58
So what does everyone make of the 40m + Batshuayi reports for Lukaku? . We want 70m so I'm not sure why we should accept that a 32m flop is still worth 30m? .


1.) 26 Mar 2017 13:16:34
My Thoughts exactly Gibbo.

2.) 26 Mar 2017 15:19:32
Batshuayi is far from a flop, he needs game time, I like the player, if Chelsea upped their price plus the player and Lukaku insists he wants away I would certainly take the player on offer.

{Ed002's Note - Everton has zero interest in the player.}



08 Aug 2016 20:07:08
18m bid rejected for Bolasie according to a reputable newspaper. Going back in with a second bid. I rate the guy, would sort out our left wing, be a great signing.


1.) 08 Aug 2016 20:30:48
I hope we get him.

2.) 08 Aug 2016 20:30:48
1 massive problem there pal. no such thing as a reputable newspaper lol.



26 Jun 2016 18:56:20
Ed002, who are you? . You're like the Batman of this website, dark and brooding, but very proficient at what you do and nobody really knows who you are. Do you have a sidekick? .


{Ed002's Note - #WonderDogSparky.}

A newspaper have just ran a story, it's Farhad Moshiri.


1.) 27 Feb 2016 10:18:58
It's in The Telegraph.

Usmanov has paid approx 200m for his Arsenal Shares

Roughly the same amount to purchase EFC
WHAT a coincidence.

2.) 27 Feb 2016 10:50:20
Yeah I did say the telegraph but it got changed to "a newspaper", do you work for the daily fail ed 😉

He's not super rich but I do like how it says Bill will still have a place at the club.

3.) 27 Feb 2016 10:53:40
Bk will be kept on as well which is a good thing. Get rid of the rest.

4.) 27 Feb 2016 14:46:42
Lets hope they do not keep Martinez on.

Ed, you said a while ago that release clauses aren't as simple as they seem and don't really mean anything these days. Who would enforce such a thing? Would we have to get uefa involved or a hire a team of solicitors to enforce such a clause? .


{Ed002's Note - I provided an explanation about the clauses recently.}



16 Jun 2017 14:19:48
I know this is going to be a very controversial post but. I quite like the new kit, I think it looks much better on.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 15:13:06
Im with you Gibbo. Its grown on me and is a nicer home jersey than the dark red the other lot have.

2.) 16 Jun 2017 17:47:59
I suppose who cares what the kits like once it's not pink. It kinda looks like a training top. It's who wears it that's getting exciting.

3.) 16 Jun 2017 18:47:53
I will see ya around belgard in it Tallaght.



02 Jun 2017 20:34:10
Well if it helps everyone like our new kit more, liverpools new away makes them look like a tube of trebor soft mints.


1.) 02 Jun 2017 20:41:05
Nothing will make me like our new kit more its terrible : (.

2.) 03 Jun 2017 15:37:22
Only way that top would look good is Amanda Burton and Claire sweeney wearing it in a pair of the 86 Lineker shorts, other than that does not get a second look from me, poor top.

3.) 03 Jun 2017 21:11:02
Amanda Holden even, slight typo error above.



31 May 2017 22:02:37
Take it Iheanacho isn't a target of ours then, sounds like his agent says he's off to West Ham, I think he's quality and think we'll have missed a massive trick if we didn't even try.


1.) 31 May 2017 22:41:05
I like him too gibbo and he's there for the taking so if RK and SW aren't interested then I'm happy with that.

2.) 31 May 2017 23:36:19
from what I read on the west ham page it's like a 2 year loan deal which explains why we haven't gone near it.



25 May 2017 10:26:08
Ed, I wondered if could pick your brains over a transfer query I have, I was just wondering, is it a lot more expensive to bring a player in than sell one. For example say we sold Barkley for 30m and bought Sigurdsson for 30m, it wouldn't be as black and white as breaking even? . Taking wages out of the equation, there would be signing on fee's, agent fee's etc for the incoming transfer. Are there any additional incomes generated from an outgoing transfer? . Or is it a case of 30m and that's it.


{Ed002's Note - It depends on various factors Gibbo, particularly whether the player is under 24 and was developed by the club but it would be a saving rather than an expenditure in the case of RB. Typically selling a player brings in a fee but it does incur costs as well.

In simple terms:
what would be paid by the buying club (Everton) for Sigurdsson would typically include:
(a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the EPL.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents (this will be several million pounds).
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (sometimes waived).

What is paid by the selling club (Everton) for Barkley) would typically include:
(a) If the player is under 24 and moving between different football associations, a Solidarity contribution paid to his previous clubs responsible for his training - this is 5% of the transfer fee received (apportioned 5% of the contribution for each year from the season of his 12th birthday to the season of his 15th birthday and 10% of the contribution for each season from his 16th to 23rd birthdays). So for RB this is zero.
(b) If the player moves to a higher category club (all clubs being categorised 1 to 4) then Training Compensation is due for the period of age 12 to 21. Compensation is due to all clubs when the player turns from amateur to professional and thereafter only when he moves from his final training club to another club. The initial training compensation is levied at the training costs associated with Category 4 clubs. The subsequent figure is agreed between the sides or tribuneral if necessary. Zero in the case of RB.
(c) Any monies owed to the player if he did not request a transfer – again this is 5% of the transfer fee received.
(d) Any monies owed to the player in terms of his contract (typically outstanding owed wages (not future wages) and bonuses).
(e) Any money contractually due to a previous club as the result of a sell-on clause. Zero for RB.

Thanks ed, great insight.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Gibbo.}

2.) 25 May 2017 11:56:26
I don’t get it I thought Ross wanted 100k and Sigurdsson wants 120k so are we saying Sigurdsson is worth 20k per annum more? Bringing age into account its a little bit strange to me .

{Ed002's Note - That would be per week not per year. My advice is not to worry about the wages at all.}

3.) 25 May 2017 15:24:08
Very interesting Ed.

{Ed002's Note - It starts to put transfers in to context.}

Wouldn't worry too much, it's the same site that claimed Dortmund were coming in for him, not heard anything since. Unless it's from the mainstream media I don't tend to pay it much attention.

He's the one player linked to us I would love this summer. He's a top player and a proven match winner, he'd help bridge that gap to the top 6. If we could buy him and get the same for Ross then I'd be ecstatic.

I wouldn't worry about it, I can't see anything. I'd only worry if the mainstream media gets hold of it and I'm talking about the Sky's, Independent, Telegraph. All the daily stars etc is drivel, there are a lot of crap online sites that spout nonsense too as clickbait.

I can't say I'd be too worried if this didn't come off, he may have potential we can't see but he didn't exactly set the world alight at Watford.

Schneiderlin isn't too shabby either! . I hope Niang is in addition to Sandro and not instead, those two and Carlos Bacca and I'd be happy, throw Sigurdsson into the mix and it's a dream summer for me.

I think we're following the model of buying young highly rated players and hoping they turn into champions league players, very similar to the Spurs model, which worked well for them. I'm very happy with what's happening at the moment, such a refreshing change.

He would never come, he doesn't fit our target profile, 90m for a 32yr old, Koeman would never want him 😉.

Treated us like dirt, let him rot in the Spurs reserve team.
