Ed - just wondering if we have an interest in Fabian Delph?

It is being reported on SSN and would be quite an interesting signing - a departure from our ethos so far (bad) , but would improve our squad and by all accounts is an excellent dressing room presence.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach but I am aware of an "agent" having said three sides have an interest in him "if the price were reasonable" - so certainly a maybe.

If my two cents are worth anything Everton should have pushed harder for Morgan Sanson after enquiring.}

Thanks Ed - great information as always.

Always interesting to hear your views on players as well as they are invariably names that we don't hear much about.

I've recently been reading a brilliant book about the use of data in scouting (Football Hackers: The Science and Art of a Data Revolution by Christoph Biermann) . It talks about teams (Brentford, Liverpool, Dortmund, FC Midtjylland etc. ) and individuals (Lucien Favre, Sven Mislintat, Thomas Tuchel etc. ) using advanced player data models and stats in recruitment and coaching etc. to great success both on and off the pitch to allow them to punch above their weight.

Do you know if Silva / Brands have a similar data based approach to help identify targets?
How sophisticated/ modern is our approach to recruitment, or are we behind the curve?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know TiH but about 18 months or so ago the conference rooms were being used by orgainsations who sell these sorts of software packages and clubs were represented by those responsible for doing the performance analysis of players. The sales pitches were pretty heavy.}

Do you think we have missed out on the chance of a good player there Ed002? Sanson is not a name I have heard/ seen mentioned before. Thanks for your time!

{Ed002's Note - Most certainly.}

Although only rumors, there has been mutterings of Delph over the past couple of Days here on Merseyside, for what it’s worth, my understanding is he will be an Alan Harper type utility player covering a few positions.

If Gaye pushes for a move then in my opinion we have an excellent player in Delph to bring in as a replacement, same age as Gaye and a very under rated player.

Like I say just rumours but very strong rumour.

Hi Ed have we missed out because he is off somewhere else now or just cooled our interest.

{Ed002's Note - Not for either reason.}

Sanson is quality. I'd be chuffed to bits if we managed to sign him.

09 Jul 2019 21:56:16
Thanks Ed so does that mean we still may be in for him? Or have we messed around on any potential deal by not pushing hard enough and torpedoed our chances?

{Ed002's Note - there has been nothing from Everton recently.}

Delph is a wonderfull player but is injury prone sadly, when fit is a true international class player, would improve us greatly if fit.
