Any shred of credibility in the Marcos Asensio to everton murmurs Ed002?

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - Marco Asensio (RW/LW) Goals have dried up and his representative is workin with a third-party agent to find a club willing to pay something like €40M for the player. The third party has said that the player ideally wants a club in the Champions League but the discussions he has had have been with Leicester City and Leeds so far and admits knocking on the door of other PL clubs including Arsenal. Real Madrid may be open to using him in a part exchange deal of some type.}


1.) 03 Aug 2021 19:11:40
Thanks Ed, there was a quite a buzz about this player 2-3 years ago, 40 million is speculative surely, even disregarding the economic impact of C.V., he seems to have stagnated terribly.

{Ed002's Note - Correct.}


2.) 04 Aug 2021 21:11:39
He's just scored a belter for Spain though.

Any substance in the Josh king to Everton murmurs in the rags today Ed002?

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - It has to be possible as Everton have previously shown interest, and Bournemouth are keen to sell now as he will be out of contract in the summer. Newcastle have had an offer for JK rejected and offers may well be coming from West Ham and West Brom.}


1.) 10 Jan 2021 10:23:46
Talk of Kenny or Branthwaite going the opposite direction, happy for Kenny to go but think letting Branthwaite go would be a mistake.


2.) 10 Jan 2021 10:35:15
Letting Branthwaite go would be a massive mistake. I believe him and Godfrey could be a future centre back partnership for years to come.


3.) 10 Jan 2021 10:35:17
Much obliged Ed.


4.) 10 Jan 2021 11:17:00
The report doesn’t state whether they want our player out loan or permanently, if on loan and given game time I would like Branthwaite given the experience
If permanently then maybe time for Kenny to move.


5.) 10 Jan 2021 12:49:35
If Branthwaite going surely would only be a loan.


6.) 10 Jan 2021 15:04:59
Is he any better than Toson?


7.) 10 Jan 2021 21:10:49
Surely not isn't he another left winger?


8.) 11 Jan 2021 13:47:54
Pretty sure he’s a CF but can play across the front line. Could be wrong though.

Anything on Everton pursuing Zeki Celik, Turkish right back playing for Lille Ed002.

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - Zeki Celik (RB) Last summer Lille were willing to sell for €20M and don't want to negotiate too far from that amount. The player was looking to move to England at some point and the asking price has proven too high for Villareal who were offered to opportunity to bid for him. West Ham, Everton and Spurs showed an interest. Roma approached Lille before Christmas and are now trying to negortiate a deal.}


1.) 06 Jan 2021 20:15:51
Nice one Ed!


 

 

09 Nov 2020 20:31:36
Ed002, any real chance of Isco winding up at Everton?

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - common sense says no - it is not wghat Everton need - and there have been talks about another opportunity for him.}


 

 

20 Oct 2020 14:38:48
Another story about a European break away on Sky Ed002, the C.V. seems to be accelerating the plans of the regular champs league sides, any news you can share with us Ed?

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what t has been said but there was a push on Friday to again discuss expanding the pre-season International Champions Cup to a much larger event where clubs would be members of the tournament through a debenture type system but need to commit to playing their first team in all games. It would be a money spinner but will add many more first team games to the annual schedule - and this was one of the drivers behind Liverpool's Project Big Foot. The idea has been around for quite a long time.}


1.) 20 Oct 2020 15:01:30
in all seriousness how much money do premier league clubs need i think its a an absolute shambles and these proposals should be rejected a. s. a. p its a joke just keep everything the way it is its working isn't it honestly the top 6 generate enough money the premier league generates enough money just leave it the premier league woudnt be the same without the top 6 teams and also are league is the best league in the world fact.


2.) 20 Oct 2020 20:10:35
i say let the greedy persons go. kick em out of our league, think of all the european trips they will have and expense for the fans or is it uck the fans.


3.) 20 Oct 2020 21:48:35
Could be a loophole for the big boys to get it as a money spinner and assist with their ffp, sure Ed002 will be able to let us know if this is the case.

{Ed002's Note - They would have significantly more money taken from the others.}

Ed002,
If everton finish this transfer window with a net spend of approx 2 million pounds, but also don't manage to sell any of the players who would bring in significant transfer fees, but also don't sign any more players at all, will the club have more room for manoeuvre next summer, or is off setting clubs losses impossible without player sales? I know increasing commercial income is fainly possible, but the club as it stands would struggle to attract andy serious blue chip partners.

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - Net spend on transfer fees is of no relevance for anything.}


1.) 14 Aug 2021 14:23:56
If you owe money it is debt. If you are unable to service that debt it is called deficit (outgoings outstrip income) . The way I see it, FFP works along the same lines but with some financial leeway. I don't know the exact figure and neither do I have an economics degree, masters or otherwise. Just trying to use commonsense. I just take my clues from SWIMBO, she seems to manage our household okay. As far as I can see Everton will be okay.

{Ed002's Note - You don't seem to understand the situation at all. Just drop all of the discussion about finances.}


2.) 14 Aug 2021 23:37:12
Ed002 well done!


 

 

08 Aug 2021 08:15:55
After watching the game yesterday, I am more pessimistic than ever, especially as it seems that Benitez is going to use zonal marking, we will struggle to create, we will struggle for goals, and by the looks of it will struggle to stop them aswell, unless players arrive before the window shuts the outlook is bleak, nobody can deny it, that squad of players as it stands will seriously struggle to make top half.

Bluedanny1982

{Ed025's Note - we just have to live in hope danny, its not looking very promising i must say but you never know mate..


1.) 08 Aug 2021 09:29:50
I think we will be just fine, give Rafa time he’ll get us winning games, we just need to be realistic and temper our expectations, it’s a season or two of rebuilding and Rafa is the perfect man for the job. If we all start the season with a negative attitude it won’t help the club or players. Once we get back to a full Goodison, we need to get behind the team; as last season showed, the team need us.


2.) 08 Aug 2021 11:50:23
I hope you are right swinners, I refrained from criticism of the manager, I realise he needs to be given time, but if FFP dictates that we can cannot improve the squad, then Benitez or any other manager would struggle to get a tune out the players that we have, its one thing signing players, but another to improve the squad, I can't help thinking any further signings we make, will be purely about having more legs, I don't see us improving the quality.


3.) 08 Aug 2021 12:09:58
I thought that the one thing that we could depend on Benitez for would be organisation. The team would not fall apart. Evidently my mistake.

{Ed025's Note - he has to be given time glennk, he will be trying his best but its not easy when your hands are tied, dont read anything into yesterday mate it was a run out with a scratch side and only the third game in the rafa era, hopefully we will be in better shape on saturday and see some progress..


4.) 08 Aug 2021 16:24:09
Better to judge him when we next play Utd. We’ve set a bench mark; now let’s go smash it!


 

 

31 Jul 2021 11:08:32
People will bring up James Rodriguez's appearances. or lack of them for everton last season, but his stats hold up against anyones, I can't believe Rafael Benitez is willing to let the one world class player we have leave the club, what's the alternative in the number 10 role? Iwobi? Rodriguez doesn't possess pace, he does however possess vision, awareness, deftness of touch, an eye for a pass, long range shooting ability quality crossing. can anyone give me a list of Alex Iwobis attributes and make an honest comparison.

Bluedanny1982

1.) 31 Jul 2021 13:17:18
His passing and ability not in doubt but there is no doubt that playing him on the right encouraged opposition to attack us down that side and the majority of the time it was easy for them. A coach such as Rafa will not accept it abd good for him.


2.) 31 Jul 2021 13:44:20
So don't play him on the right, let play 10, manage his games effectively and he will be an asset, we have enough legs in midfield with Allan, Doucoure and Davies etc to cover for his lack of defensive work rate.


3.) 31 Jul 2021 14:09:44
I think he is using gray as the number 10 at the minute. Maybe that's his plan for the team. He looked good in that role from what I've seen.


4.) 31 Jul 2021 15:27:54
Whilst wouldn’t want to see Rodriguez go it does make sense from a business perspective.

Cost us nothing.
Only a 2 year deal so can leave on a free next year.
Probably on a decent wage.

If we can sell him this transfer window will make some money which we could potentially re-invest and also removes a high wage of the wage bill.


5.) 31 Jul 2021 15:32:57
Point being it didn't work last season. CA was pretending to be our Manager, Rafa wants to be here, we either trust his methods or hire another plane with a banner.


6.) 31 Jul 2021 18:25:13
James is worth keeping around for another year as he raises our profile. If he goes we have no player with world class status.


7.) 31 Jul 2021 19:46:12
Sheedy unfortunately we do have one other player who currently has world class status - unfortunately all for the wrong reasons though 😬.


8.) 31 Jul 2021 20:17:35
A good post DFS totally agree mate.


9.) 01 Aug 2021 02:17:49
Point being DFS that it worked even less last season when Rodrigues wasn't playing, we still haven't got a new RB and we are nowhere near getting a right sided attacking midfield

Without Rodrigues where's out creativeness going to come from?

Benitez still has time to sort it out but he hasn't yet.


 

 

19 Jul 2021 08:11:13
So it begins, if we're only signing Andros Townsend as a cheap replacement for Bernard, wouldn't it be wise to wait untill he's actually gone first? And also what exactly are we replacing? Goals or assists from the bench? Pace when tha game is the balance? No, Bernard has done nothing for 2 seasons, Anthony Gordon should be taking precedence over anyone else for Bernards spot, let's give him a decent run at the 1st team, its now or never for him.

Bluedanny1982

1.) 19 Jul 2021 13:07:29
I’d wait and see, how old was Gareth Barry when he signed and I’d have his determination and enthusiasm any day.


2.) 19 Jul 2021 13:11:02
If Gordon gets overlooked again then I think the fans calling for him to be included need to let it go. If 2 or 3 managers are bypassing him for the first team then there is obviously something missing in his overall ability. The lad struggled at Preston, not sure why people believe he is going to solve all of our problems. If he's good enough he will get a chance, if not then we might as well let him go somewhere else to play.


3.) 19 Jul 2021 13:58:12
He didn't struggle at Preston, he didn't fit the way the new manager wanted to play (which was very defensive) . Ask the Preston supporters what they thought of him, before writing the lad off.


4.) 19 Jul 2021 14:12:54
BB, I'm not writing him off just pointing out the obvious. He started well at Preston but couldn't get into the squad later in the season, totally agree there. But surely he should be able to do the defensive work that goes with being a winger?
Read what I said again, I wasn't suggesting he isn't good enough. I'm saying that if Rafa doesn't give him a chance then that's a few managers on the bounce so something isn't right with him. That's IF Rafa decides not to use him. I'd prefer to see our home grown players get a chance but only if they are good enough mate.


5.) 19 Jul 2021 21:55:57
fair enough BP mate.


 

 

01 Jul 2021 16:20:12
I've been fairly vocal about not waning Benitez as the Everton manager, I stand by that. but without wanting to sound cringey, I will always stand by Everton first and foremost, he's been given the job by the man (Moshiri) who has basically raised the expectation of all of us, he's invested hand over first, he alone is responsible for the stadium plans progressing from flights of fancy, to actual work beginning on the construction phase, and as for Benitez himself, well you have to admire his hard faced, self-confident demeanour, I just hope he can transfer that attitude on to the players, who in all honesty seem to have serious lack of belief.
Just want to add that over the 29 or so days since Ancelotti left, the comments from blues on here have always been full of passion, passion for the same thing regardless of differing opinions, sometimes it can get heated, but every poster is a die hard Evertonian, and whilst that sort of passion exists amongst us, there is always hope for better days to come. hopefully at Wembley and in Europe.

Dumfries would be a poor signing in my opinion, he would get found out really quickly in the Premier league, defensively naive and all his attributes are physical.

Opinions, opinions. of the three players than have come in so far, its only Begovic that makes any sense, Townsend improves neither the first XI nor the bench, and Demarai Gray suffers from the same issues as Walcott, Bolasie, Iwobi. his end product leaves much to be desired, is it too much to ask that we sign a winger who beats his marker and whips the early cross in? The above players were infuriating because they continually hold on to the ball too long.

We may not be a better team since Moshiri became custodian of everton, but we are a much better club, and nobody can deny it, new stadiums wether they were in Walton Hall Park, Kirkby, Croxteth or the docklands were nothing but flights of fancy before he came on board, he has put plenty of money into trying to improve the team, ok the recruitment via Walsh, Brands and Moshiri's shady advisors has been mediocre at best, but the desire and intent to improve the club has always been there, but the truth is that its just so difficult to build a team that wins trophies, Man City have broken the rules multiple times, they had to, without being able to wantonly throw money at a club over 10 years or more, there is no chance of a club breaking up the elite, the rules are set up to stop it, Moshiri has tried like mad, upto this point unsuccessfully, but you can't knock the man for trying.

I for one am underwhelmed by the Andros Townsend signing, its got nothing to do with how much he will cost, its to do with the fact he's an average player, he's 30 years old, and he's not going to improve the squad, tell me how he's different from Yannick Bolasie? We might as well have given him 2 years on reduced terms, we should be targeting youth, young hungry players with promise, and eager to prove themselves.

Bluedanny1982

{Ed002's Note - He is cheaper than Leon Bailey and Samuel Chukwueze who CA wanted.}
