Delph good signing for me

Not a replacement for Gana but a solid midfielder that will add competition for places, box to box plenty of energy and quick to read the game

Personally I think that spells the end for

Morgan sniderlain
Besic (has pretty much gone)
McCarthy

But still leaves us with

Gomes
Davies
Gana
Delph
Siggy.

Delph signed. Good bit of business will add leadership, experience and versatility.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

15 Jul 2019 22:11:08
Good bit of business - that I would agree with, not his biggest fan as a player but in terms of business 8-10mil is small change for a 30yr old English prem winner but. and I say but. it’s going to be interesting to see the knock on effect of this deal as he is not a likenfpr like replacement for Gana at all, more Tom Davies for me!

Really pleased with this signing, top player best sighning for a very long time.

Very good signing, a leader, experienced, title winner, versatile, professional, role model and a damn fine footballer- all that for £8.5mil. wonderful stuff.

SSN reporting delph has signed not a bad player to have in the squad i'm not his biggest fan hope he proves me wrong.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

15 Jul 2019 19:36:12
Sky Sports reporting that Fabian Delph has joined up with the Everton squad in Switzerland ahead of his proposed move from Manchester City.

I think he'll be a useful addition to the squad especially at the prices quoted. To me it seems like he's a replacement for Idrissa Gueye.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

15 Jul 2019 20:05:32
He will mate but I would like Gueye to stay.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 20:50:06
I don't think Delph is the same sort of player as Gana, Delph is a box to box type, very similar to Gomes in my opinion, and us signing him raises a lot of questions about Tom Davies future prospects in the first team.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 20:53:37
As much as I'd like to have Gana stay I think his heads been turned by better and bigger things afoot at PSG.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 21:44:39
Smart business getting Delph can cover a load of positions and push others for a starting place
If Gueye does go and we sign a younger replacement like Sangare, having Delph would ease the pressure if they don’t acclimatise to the premiership pace straight away.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 21:54:01
WE have signed delph in a 3 year deal till 2022 three signing only one I’m happy with is Gomez poor transfers at moment hope next few weeks gets better.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 23:41:58
Why poor transfers White? If you look at last season a few were the same when Gomes, Bernard, Zouma came in, all three did well last season.

A few scoffed when we brought Guaye in from Villa and Richarlison from Watford, even Barry.

I would trust and Silva and Brands in their judgement.

Delph is a very shrewd signing.

I for one is made up with the signing of Delph.

Just read a report stating we have bid 30m for Moise Keane from Juventus. In the last year of his contract, Juve have reportedly offered him 2.5m per year contract to stay but is meeting with his agent, Minola Raiola, next week.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

14 Jul 2019 22:15:23
From what i've seen, brands is trying to pay a bigger upfront fee, in the region of $40,000,000. this will be to stop a percentage of the sell on fee going to juventus, which if he is half as good as everyone is saying will be a masterstroke, if he does a Jansen at spurs and flops, money down the drain.

15 Jul 2019 08:02:16
It's the same with any player KyleEFC. All signings have risks. Let's hope that if he arrived that he hits the ground running and scores the goals we need.

15 Jul 2019 10:53:56
Hi all thing that winds me up about transfer window if we linked to a player we want why don’t we make a realistic move for him and not risk of losing him to another team Costa we interested in but have compaction bloody go sign him then.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 13:57:48
White - unfortunately us as fans have no idea who we are genuinely interested in signing. Most of the stuff we read is probably made up to sell newspapers and get website visits.
It is a frustrating time of the year as I’m sure we’ve all got ideas of players we’d like to sign (Zouma, Pepe and Neres for me) but until a player signs we’ve just got to go with the flow and trust Brands and Marcel to do the business, which is easier said than done as I’m continually checking the rumours.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 16:11:40
Sounds very simple to say if we want him just go and sign him.
Unfortunately, unless you are one of the real top clubs, then likely players will want to hang on to see if any better options whether that be money, Europa League, CL.
I'm sure the club would love to have everyone signed and on the pre-season trip, but that just isn't reality.

There is a reason why market goes mad before the close of the window and a large part is due to the fact that players / agents have assessed their options and given up waiting for better offers.

Trust in Marcel.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 17:30:41
Very hard for club to attract the top players but I do think the closer the stadium becomes a reality then this will help us but it’s 3 years away and from a players point of view there is nothing to see and likely not even play in it, can't wait for it to get started.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 16:25:07
Do you know what RBs we have an interest in Ed’s? I’m surprised we let Kenny leave without somebody lined up.

{Ed002's Note - Kieran Trippier (RB) will be possible if the player decides to stay in England - but the reality is becoming more and more unlikely
Thomas Meunier (RB) wanted by Everton and Arsenal but financial a step too much for Arsenal - and Everton will likely have to think twice given the player wants to stay in Paris
Valentino Lazaro (RM/RW/RB) looked at by RBL, Newcastle, Brighton, Bayer Leverkusen, PSG Leicester and Everton but talks are on-going with Napoli (who are not as attractive to the player) and Inter who expect to strike a deal - but he would be a great fix for the right hand side, particularly if Malcom could be added as well - moved to Inter after Everton not making the necessary effort.
Atletico's Santiago Arias (RB) is known to Brands but has said he wants to stay in Spoain and play more regularly know that Juanfran is leaving. Add to that Champions League it seems unlikely. I would think expensive as well.
Joakim Maehle (RB) Genk do not want to sell but the player wants to move on - Southampton has a sustained interest in the player. I am pretty sure Everton have not approached Genk at this time so it seems rather unlikely.

Chelsea fan coming in peace.
Just wanted to express how impressed I am with your knowledge, Ed. I'm from a city very close to the one that Mæhle is from, I went to the same high school as him, and he played for my local team before joining Genk. I think it's so cool to be able to read about these players, and I think it would be amazing if he could make a move to a club like Everton!
Have a nice day!

{Ed002's Note - Thank you.}

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 17:43:37
dentielad ofcourse there are risks when signing a player, but there's much more of a gamble slashing a percentage of the sell on cause for a higher upfront fee, it could literally go one way or the other.

{Ed002's Note - You need to skip thoughts about sell on clauses.}

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 09:42:27
RB Leipzig back in for Ademola Lookman as reported by BBC Sport yesterday. We are allegedly looking for around £25 million for him. Not sure what has gone on with Lookman but it's just not worked out for him here.

The reports of PSG back in for Gana as well. I know he wants to go so reluctantly I would let him. No point in keeping players who don't want to be here. He hasn't sulked though just got on with it so credit to him for that in this day and age. He will be a big loss if he leaves.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

13 Jul 2019 10:59:58
Both transfers will represent a good profit and the players want the move. In the modern game this is a no brainer. Lookman leaving I can live with, but Gueye will be harder to replace. And let’s face it, if there were better out there then PSG could get them. So that one will be tough.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 11:14:27
Would not like to start season without Zouma and Gueye. The whole spine of team would be gone - particularly as we have no idea who will be upfront.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 15:39:11
I think Gueye has been an absolute gem for us but to deny a move to such a massive club like PSG is really not fair. He is a workhorse, breaks up so many attacking phases and always gives 100%. He does lack many other qualities though such as good passing range and starting off attacking breaks to hit on the counter so it suprises me that he is an automatic pick for Silva's style of play.
Tom Davies looks like he could be a direct replacement already, although he very quickly needs to refine his game. I am a huge fan of the lad, can see his talent shine through often, but his rawness is pretty evident. Temperament is a worry to.
I mainly think that we can cash in on Gueya with Davies as the replacement because the 30 ish million would be vital in funds to address CB and CF, the latter being a position that is never cheap to fulfil.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 16:50:39
Excellent post Worcester.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Jul 2019 11:38:12
I think Davies is the long term replacement too mate and the Delph signing would allow Tom that extra time to grow into that player we all hope he will be.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2019 20:43:21
How many wingers and midfield do we want. We have Gueye, Davis, Scheiderlin, Gomez plus U23's.

For 8m take that, not statement signing by any means but shrewd signing.

Not if he’s a replacement for Gueyre.

Good signing as long as he isn’t a replacement for Gueye.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 21:33:54
Not happy myself, at 29 does not fit the age range Brands said he was looking for and if we give him a three year contract we will have another over 30 player soon. Also he hasn't played all that much as far as I can see, would rather play Davies and he is definitely not a replacement for Gueye.

Agree3 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 21:38:35
£8m to sit on our bench instead of City's, weird signing I've got faith in what Silva and Brands are doing will of course divide some fans.

At that price a good buy although does pick up a few injuries.

12 Jul 2019 23:12:50
Think he is going to be the short term replacement for Gueye sadly.

Sensible signing, regardless of the price.

12 Jul 2019 23:24:53
Pepe, Malcolm, Costa, kean, . delph A player who had a good season 7 yrs ago Seriously. this club absolutely dumbfounds me at times.
Costa was too old and didn't fit into Marco and marcels "team ethics" yet Fabian delph does?!

A man who has had about 3 games in the last 4 yrs and we are going to accept his signing as "great business for 8 mil" and slate an attempt at Costa?

Agree0 1Disagree

13 Jul 2019 01:19:22
Paul 8 Million for Delph is a steal, he is the same age as Gaye, this guy will make a lot of people eat their words, you can quote me on that if we sign him.

It is looking like Gaye will be leaving, would prefer we kept him, but in the same breath, Delph will come in and do a job.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 07:13:35
We do need more leaders in this squad and he is certainly a good leader so for 8 million I think it is shrewd business.
He played 11 games for the best team in Europe last season.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 07:25:58
I think it's a terrible signing, must mean Gueye is going. Just shows that we're still a selling club and can't keep hold of our good players. Bad business.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 07:53:34
Not for me backward step to old struggled to get in City team plenty better younger players out there for right price all players we linked with and we poss sign delph poor signing not good enough for us see it going be one of those poor windows for us again not happy at all.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 07:55:04
Still a selling club! . did we sell when PSG came knocking last time? . no. does gueye want to leave? . yes. i'm sure if we offloaded all the deadwood you wouldn't be complaining. delph is a steal at 8 mill. jheez, some people need to get a grip.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 07:59:54
A selling club really? It's a phrase I really hate. We are not a selling club, however like it or not there are much bigger clubs out there at this moment. If they come in for a player - and the player wants the move - why would we not sell? As for Delph for 8m, it isn't even a gamble at that price, so why wouldn't you take him?

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 08:03:48
I remember people saying the same thing about Gareth Barry and he was a great servant, its not a bad idea to sign experience once in a while. I think Delph could give us a coupke of years in the squad at least.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 08:06:01
Do some of the people who post on here ever actually go to watch Everton?
Or live football at all for that matter.
Delph is not a statement signing. I don’t believe he will be the replacement for GG either, more an additional Centre mid for the squad.
Gomes, GG ( or replacement) , Tom D, Delph and maybe Morgan. We need that many.

Pep has chosen him for 33 EPL games in past 2 seasons. Granted a lot at LB but also in Centre mid.
Delph brings leadership, bite, a winning mentality and experience. All things our relatively young team is lacking.
It’s all about balance people and when Marcel and Marco start getting things wrong then we can complain - but everything has worked out so far so let’s trust them eh.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 08:13:03
And I’m sorry but to compare Costa and Delph is embarrassing.
Marcel has never said he wouldn’t buy older players just that we wouldn’t spend fortunes on players with no resale value - I think Farhad can sleep easily for £8m!
Costa brings a whole load of issues - though part of me would love him IF he is still the player he was 2 seasons ago but Delph is a team player. Plays where he is asked and does a good professional job FOR THE TEAM.

Remember the moaning when Barry signed
And then the crying when he left

Or imagine Twitter when we signed Paul Power.

It’s about balance people.
It’s about knowing the character of people
And you don’t get that from 10 mins highlights on MOTD.

He’s a good solid signing.
There are plenty more to come so keep the moaning until the window closes.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 08:20:07
Delph is a good signing at 8 mil he will add experience to are midfield I know at 29 some people say it's going against the age range brands and Silva said but they never said that they wouldn't sign older players just that the older player would have to be the right fit for club and at right price and I don't believe for a minute he will be signed as a replacement for gueye if he dose go to PSG witch I have my doubts about as I can't see PSG meeting are valuation of 35-40 million.

{Ed025's Note - i really like gueye david and he is very important to the team, but if a player wants out then thats just the way it is, we cant have a player who does not want to be here it just makes no sense mate, players will always come and go thats just the nature of the beast, we have to make sure that we get the best possible price for him and an adequate replacement

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 09:13:59
Excellent signing for that price. Better than Jimmy MC, Morgan and Besic - so immediately improves our squad. Adds valuable experience as well.

All accounts are that he is an excellent dressing room presence as well - from both Guardiola and Southgate. Look at how good Miller has been for Liverpool, and how good Barry was for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 09:22:52
Solid signing for not a lot of money, no harm in having a couple of experienced heads in the squad. to say that if gueye goes we're a selling club is nonsense in my view - he won't be sold because we need the money but because he doesn't want to be here any more. And with all due respect FatChris I'd question your judgement of who our good players are to keep hold of anyway given that you think Kieran Dowell going leaves us light at centre half.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 09:25:25
8 mil is a decent price. I just don't think he is a good player. Never seen him have good game for city. Maybe a few at villa but rather keep Jimmy mac than have delph. Just my opinion.

Agree0 1Disagree

13 Jul 2019 11:33:26
We are now using man city like we did man Utd. "Oh they'll bring a winning mentality and leadership"
Behave yourself!
It's a backward step yet again.
If gana wants to go then yes I agree let him go, but at least go and find a player that is either younger or if we insist on players at the end of their careers at least get one who isn't injury prone or a bit part player used to fill problem positions who never ever lived up to his expectations!

Sorry but, he's not going to be a Barry. Barry was and always has been a great player. What the ef has Fabian delph ever done to deserve this transfer?
Evertonians saying great business?
Basic and McCarthy are far better players. Davies and baningime are far better prospects.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 13:00:51
Gana hasn't gone and Delph hasn't signed yet you are all going into melt down.
Crazy.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 13:54:33
Toffee Davey if you actually read what I have written, I said that we 3 CBs isn't enough and we can't promote from the u23s. You make it sound as if I think it's a bad move allowing him to go out on season long loan. I was just making a point how much of a priority an additional CB comes in.

And if Gueye leaves we are still a selling club. The reason for selling your best players is irrelevant, whether for the club needing the money or because we can't match an offer from another club, it doesn't matter. If we mean to progress we shouldn't "sell" players from our starting 11.

If Gueye doesn't go or we bring in someone better then fine.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 17:28:08
Like another has said, players like Power, then Harper, Sheedy, ex neighbours reserves, a crocked Reid, last pay Day Andy Gray, over the hill Gareth Barry, aging David Weir and Richard Gough, then you have the cannot get in their team so not good enough for Everton, how many said the same last season about Zouma, how many said Tierney and blasted when we got a Digni instead, me for one on that one.

If you look back in time, most of our players who have been a big success have either come from the lower leagues, or from a team they didn’t get a lot of game time for.

We had a few dodgy over the hill signings, but on a whole, the players we scratched our heads at would have been Cahill, Pienar, Baines, Jags, Arteta, Power, Harper, Southall, Richardson, list is endless.

But they all came in and did a job for Everton.

Delph is a team player and certainly a leader, something we need in this squad, for 8 Million, it is a no brainier for me.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 17:56:31
He's had injury problems so I'm not over the moon with this one tbh. He's a utility player which is a bonus. He's not a player I want but we will see how it works out. It's certainly split the fans haha.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 10:09:02
Ed I agree with a lot of what you said and gueye was such a great pro last year when PSG came in for him in January so wouldn't begrudge him his move to PSG but the price would have to right for us especially considering the price that some mediocre players are going for. Ed if geuye dose go who would like to see as a replacement me personally would go for Ibrahim sangare of Toulouse he's only 21 with bags of potential physically strong as well so makes signing of delph sound like a good piece if business and gives any replacement time to settle into the club and league.

{Ed025's Note - im still hoping that idrissa stays david so i wont speculate at this time mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 21:00:56
Every club is a selling club, they all sell for the right price as does any business.
If we sell Gana so what, as long as it's for the right price.
Barca sold Neymar, nice sold Pogba, liverpool sold couthino, spurs sold Bale, Chelsea sold Hazard.
Clubs sell good players, it's all about selling them at the right time and at the right money, if you can't see that then you don't understand the modern day.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2019 22:50:10
FatChris - no mate, my point was that Kieran Dowell is a creative midfielder and his departure has absolutely zero impact on our centre half situation.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Jul 2019 22:21:22
imo delph for 8mil is a no brainer, the lad can play left back and do a job in the middle, all is good buying youthful players, but we neeed leaders too, people to get down and dirty when things get scrappy. have faith in brands marco and the backroom staff.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 09:08:09
We all know the club need to bring in an experienced striker, but with the departure of Jagielka and possible Zouma staying at Chelsea don't we also need to look for experienced CB to come in.
Does anyone know what the situation is with Holgate. Is he staying at WBA or returning?

Believable1 1Unbelievable

12 Jul 2019 10:46:47
As far as I know he has returned. Obviously things can change but I have not heard anything about him going back. Personally I think it would be a bad move, for him, going back and continuing to play right back.

Even if he does come back I'd still say that leaves us one short. Keane and Mina to start with Holgate as back up doesn't leave much space for injuries, unless we promote from the U23s.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 10:51:21
Holgate is back at everton now.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 12:58:17
It will be interesting to see how Gibson does in the remaining pre season games. For me he’s good enough and ready for a place in the squad but only time will tell.

You also can’t forget we also paid 6mill for him a few years ago so he’s obviously highly rated.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 13:19:46
Just read that Dowel is out on season long loan as well now so it is a priority.

Not totally sure how reliable their data is but according to transfermarkt we paid £990k for Lewis Gibson but the fee could rise to £6m.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 20:19:04
Holgate is back with us and played in the friendly in Kenya and wasn't that impressive at centre back Lewis Gibson also played as centre back in game and look really good calm on the ball made a few mistakes but at 18 looks like a very promising prospect.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jul 2019 09:16:51
Diego Costa? So torn on these reports. Are reports true that the deal is moving forward please Eds?

{Ed002's Note - try searching - I have explained the situation..}

Believable2 0Unbelievable

11 Jul 2019 16:34:36
With VAR next season I don’t think he would be playing much and could take that edge he has out of his game then you end up with a older version of Tosun 🤷🏽‍♂️ Think Moshiri should let brands do his job 🤞🏼.

11 Jul 2019 20:45:55
Hi Ed if rumours are right looks like Lookman and gueye poss going two more out the door yet no transfers in r we leaving it to late do u think there will b some panic signings looks like we not getting neres ow many more will we not get hope marcel and Marco no what they doing thought we would have few more signings by now have u heard of any developments with potential signings yet any good news would b appreciated lol.

{Ed025's Note - the AFCON is having a lot to do with things whitey but there is no need to panic, gueye wont be going anywhere unless we have a replacement nailed on, irons are in fires and we have to trust marcel to get it right, im sure that over the next couple of weeks we will see some exciting activity mate..

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Jul 2019 10:51:12
I agree Ed no need to panic about players going out. We don't need to sell to balance the books anymore (thankfully) and can afford to keep our best players. If Gueye went I wouldn't be fussed I'd have the confidence that the right player would be coming in as a replacement.

Just the defence that worries me. The player has already gone out and I really don't think he will be coming back.

{Ed025's Note - i agree chris zouma will be a terrible loss, but as they say they are all just transient employees and will come and go at all clubs mate, its just a matter of getting the right replacement..
