Title: The ITK Thread (First Post Regularly Updated With New Info)
Post by: Verm on July 08, 2012, 06:59:03 PM
Seeing as posting this stuff in other threads seems to wind people up I thought this may be a good idea.

Only post in here any transfer rumours/information from any supposed 'ITK's that you deem to be reliable.

Clearly state where the info came from and I'll update this post regularly.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DISCLAIMER: The sources named in here are by no means oracles of Everton related information, just people whose information in the past has been deemed as reliable by others. Things posted in this thread are by no means 100% fact until they happen and no-one should take it as fact. Also worth noting that deals can fall through and change at any point, this doesn't make the original information untrue.

John Merro (@johnmerro1)

As I said on the other thread, people tend to draw conclusions too quickly. And deals can collapse or be delayed at the last minute so even if something doesn't happen it doesn't mean it wasn't genuine info.

But of course 90% (at least) is pure bullshit generated either by the press (to sell papers) or by attention-seekers.

For the sake of fairness, can we also have an 'incorrect calls' under the correct one.

Also, i know you said you will put dates on in future, but could you also put times of tweets?
Its just that there is no point saying someone called it right if they called it a day after someone else

Yeah, i do actually believe the info they are passing on is based on some truth - my gut feeling is that it is recycled though and they are not first.

At worst they are proof of the adage 'if you thrown enough shit, some will stick'

As has been said deals can fall through, doesn't make the original information untrue.

Much easier to gauge correct calls.

From sources that don't appear to be public.

If most of what he has said turns out to be bollocks I'll remove him from the list. Until then he has provided information worth including.

Agree completely.

But an "ITK" saying that contact has been made for Baines one day and Moyes saying he has had "no contact from nobody" the next?

it means either the itk is a bullshitter or Moyes is lying.
And Rooney got sued for saying that.

(I realise the irony that i am saying moyes is honest when he has utilised a double negative which means he is saying there has been contact...)

If Baines goes then it's a correct call (a dubious one though) for anyone who has provided information that suggests he would.

But its not. Its a guess at best that came true.
If moyes has said there has been no contact then there has been no contact.

Unles of course our ITKs also have inside men at Old trafford as well as goodison?

I genuinely think that they're akin to coldreading in psychics.

But in saying that, your thread is actually a lot better than Newsnow come to think of it.
It's basically a compressed version of whats going on and what the general public are thinking.

Well this thread might actually end up sorting the wheat from the chaff in that respect.  If people are making correct calls consistently as evidenced on this thread in the future it gives them more credence.  Those who are rarely right or seem to be late to the party will soon be shown.

lcab updates.

No contact for Baines before they left for Austria. It will take £20m + for an offer to be accepted. Depending on how much we spend, if Baines goes we're likely to see most of it back for use to spend on transfers. No one wants Baines to leave, not even Baines himself.

So Baines doesn't want to go, we don't want to sell him and with a decent striker/midfielder, decent squad forward and average squad midfielder coming in, not to mention a fine cohort of youth on show in the Austria galleries, we don't need to sell to refresh the squad.

Why is this still being touted as a possibility?

Its Everton the press hate us. Also the papers know we are poor and want to fill the columns so they put 1+1 together and get 8

Looks like Cahill's staying, and I think Naismith will get in ahead of him anyway. Moyes doesn't play two out and out strikers very often. Therefore Rodallega's appearances will be limited. He'd be used in a similar way to Anichebe.

I think that the rodallega deal plays its part in the Anichebe leaving stories. If we get him I expect Anichebe to be moved on, if we dont I fully expect to see Anichebe in an EFC shirt next year

Oh yeah, I agree that makes sense, but my original point is that with the news that he is likely to move to Fulham is probably because he'll get more playing time there. I don't care if he comes or not.

Rather than just say they were wrong though they seem to be angry at those who have said for example that Baines is going to Man U and claiming they are 'blag itk's.  surely if these blag itk's get it right and they are wrong then the roles are reversed?

Also they go on to say that this is why they try and keep these deals quiet as things can go wrong...surely the job of an ITK is not to keep things quiet!and if thy are trying to keep things quiet...don't announce it on twitter!

Still....I shall keep following them and hang on every word they say!

Haha.

There does seem to be a general lack of appreciation that information may be correct up until the point when it's not.

That doesn't mean that it was wrong in the first place.

A suitable response for ITKs is to find out why things broke down etc.

Although it's fair to say that if you're going to pass yourself off as being more knowlegeable than other people, in an area where the audience is likely to be emotionally involved, then you've got to be prepared for the backlash.

There has to be a lot of vanity involved in being an ITK; therefore it must be tempting to push things, like putting players as your profile pic, to make it seem like you're more ITK than other ITKs.

It's a risky game as they'll lose a lot of credibility if this doesn't go through, rightly or wrongly.
Title: Re: The ITK Thread (First Post Regularly Updated With New Info)
Post by: GLewis on July 11, 2012, 08:01:44 PM
I remember Rhys changing his avatar on here to Robert Earnshaw and loads of people thinking that meant we were signing him...

I don't think Rhys ever said he was coming though

When we've put stuff on NSNO, I'll always try and find out what went wrong if it doesn't happen.  Someone spoke to Jimmy Bullard about a year after we'd said he was signing, and he told them that he'd been to Bellefield (as it was) and had discussions but that he was offered a better deal elsewhere (think it was at the club he was already at?  Fulham perhaps? and made to feel wanted again so didn't come here)

With Anelka it was merely a break down in communications.  I passed a message on saying we'd bid £5m for him (which we had) and that got translated into him having signed for us which went on the site.

Kieran Richardson being seen at Bellefield was just bollocks which was third hand and the person who told me shouldn't have believed, or maybe I should have questioned him more on it, but he'd given me the Arteta signing a permanent deal within minutes of it happening and before Sky Sports had it, so I believed him

I've also had stuff that I've not used because I've thought it was horse-shit as well though.  Robert Earl paying for the squad to go to New York in February a few years' back for instance.  I was told this a week before they went but checked it with someone else who said it was rubbish (that someone else was usually right) and then it happened.

Some you win, some you lose, but my policy now is that if I get information, I'll pass it on if it's from a reliable source, and if it happens, then great, if not, then it doesn't.  There's no mystery as to who I am or where I work, and I've never pretended to be "at the heart of things" personally.  All I do is pass stuff on.  I never know more than the details I've passed on, and can only be as confident as the information I have as to whether or not stuff will actually happen.

I think some of those on Twitter have been built up (not necessarily by themselves) as being something special or someone special when I do think that in fact they are the same as me.  There hear stuff and they pass it on in good faith.

I'm sure Rhys did that as everyone was banging on about how we should sign Earnshaw whereas he thought he was rubbish!

agree and disagree.

Most of the itk defamation league only really mean that, at best, the itk was actually only in the know at the time the info was passed on. By the time they have typed it then its out of date and quite possibly now wrong.

Of course there are people who are ITK, the ones who are most ITK probably wont share info with a wide audience because the better the source the less likely they will want it leaked who it is. The club and Moyes are quick to try and find sources who leak things.

Chelsea bid for Pienaar and he was possibly going to go there but Spurs came in and he thought there was more chance of game time there...not the best guess but even so that ITK might have given accurate info at that time but situations change. Fernandes couldnt have been any closer to signing for us, but within a few hours he was a Valencia player. An example of how something can be happening but things change, doesnt always make what someone has told you or a rumour you believed a lie.

Prentice saying we're no longer interested in Pranjic or Hugo R. Says we're monitoring Hoilett though. Surely we're going to have the same problem in regards to wages though? If Hugo R is asking for £70k a week, fuck knows how much Hoilett is asking for?! I'm sure we could stretch to meet his demands but we don't usually bring in 'outsiders' on top wages, we usually make them earn it. Would cause conflict if he came in as our top earner.

In fairness Hoilett would be a lot more worth the icnreased wages than Rodallega.

John Merro tweeted before that Holtby of Schalke is in the last year of his contract and no longer part of their plans. Also says that last season he was out on loan the whole year to Mainz...I'm sure he wasn't though and that he is a regular starter!

He goes on to suggest Everton may make a move

He was on loan at Mainz in 2010-2011, not last year.

I'm fairly certain this Merro character just passes on mostly blag information.

Highly doubt that and I wonder if this is a discussion for another thread but what are people's opinions on Bill staying on as Chairman if we got proper investment? As far as I can see he can't directly do much harm, most of the onus is on Bobby El to deliver. His relationship with Moyes is a huge asset in that with regards to the football side of stuff, he's never even once attempted to interfere a la Hicks, Gillet, Henry, Lerner, Glazer, Levy, etcetc.

It's difficult to pin down, and I don't think (from what I've heard) that there will necessarily be actual investment in the form of pumping money in, but more a collaboration between Everton and the Chinese State which would lead to better opportunities for Everton in China, and in turn lead to much more lucrative deals than other clubs had open to them

I remember you mentioned about a relationship of sorts previously, I just imagine that could in itself easily lead to rumours of takeovers and huge wads of cash flying in our general direction.

I just suspected that as you have alluded to, it's probably more of a growing relationship that leads to opportunities.

Ram I want some Baines exclusives off you soon seeing as though me and Merro have been outed as non ITK!

It has gone a bit quiet on the Baines front, hopefully it was all just speculation.  Really think with Pienaar signed and no major departures we will have a good season

She's on holiday at the moment so Im out the loop, I did speak to his mum at a party about two weeks back but was under strict orders not to mention Baines.

I've had correspondence over Chinese involvement and the difference between China and most other countries is the level of secrecy surpasses even that attempted by Everton themselves

It's difficult to pin down, and I don't think (from what I've heard) that there will necessarily be actual investment in the form of pumping money in, but more a collaboration between Everton and the Chinese State which would lead to better opportunities for Everton in China, and in turn lead to much more lucrative deals than other clubs had open to them

Definitely investment and not just a partenership from what I've heard

There's no such thing as "actual communism". There is only communism and that sucks. Or as the saying went "The existing form of Communism doesn't work, a working form of Communism doesn't exist."

bit strange us expecting him to have a medical now - he didn't have one in January and since then we've had access not only to his medical notes but also to him as a player

I would imagine the medical will consist of "Have you fallen out of any windows in the last 5 weeks Steven?"

Wouldn't the club be obliged for insurance purposes do one as it's a permanent move?

As I loan it wouldn't be quite so crucial as we could just send the player back if he gets injured, but I could understand us doing one for a full transfer.

But yeah he did say that Baines and Fellaini were off which I don't believe. Sounds to me like a bitter remark as he knew he wasn't wanted

Here's my last act as an itk: Pienaar to sign on Wednesday (I've heard nothing at all but may have gained psychic powers by getting that Baxter rumour right - even though it's not confirmed yet)

Considering he has never played right back in his life then it probably would be a great idea...either way he is a below average player with an over inflated opinion of himself. Never been more than average and why he has been shifted around left back, left wing and centre midfield all his career and never shone in any.

As for Owen, cant see us paying him 50k a week basic salary given his injury problems.

Dunno why everyone on such a downer on Owen. Not like he's gonna be first choice. Can't see us getting a better striker who will not want a regular starting role. Same the way everyone was slating rodallega. At the end of the day were only after a back up striker to jelavic
Title: Re: The ITK Thread (First Post Regularly Updated With New Info)
Post by: blargins on July 18, 2012, 12:46:26 AM
The thing is, is he finished or not? How reliable is he going to be for us? Especially at the high wage being branded. Will he have the same hunger he had before?

I think it's a massive risk if those figures are true, and I'd rather we got Saha back if we're going to get an old crock back. He may actually be able to work with Jelavic in some capacity. Owen's recent stats do not inspire me. 3 league cup goals was his total last season for example.

FORMER Everton striker Jose Baxter is training with Crystal Palace. And Eagles boss Dougie Freedman has admitted that the 20-year-old, who rejected a new deal at Goodison Park, is a summer transfer target. He said: “He’s a player that we’re interested in. “Jose has got a few other offers but we have struck up a good relationship and he is going to train with us for the next few weeks and get fit. "Then there will be a decision in the next few weeks about what he is going to do."

unused sub is a bit different to starting

Aye, meaning he definitely won't sign tonight although it would have been safe to say that even if he was just on the bench.

Seeing comments along the lines of 'he's playing for Spurs tonight, he's not coming' which are somewhat premature.

So-called ITKs on Twitter have been caught with their pants down on this though. One person posts a rumour, the rest gamble on it being true and post it as fact to get attention/qudos.

It then proves to be bullsh*t and they all look silly, though some are quickly using the "I'm just passing what I've heard" excuse  to try and save face.

I still think he will sign eventually mind, and the fact he is playing tonight doesn't meant the move has collapsed, we are just better off sticking to the official site for news..

but yes, "announced in a few hours" is quite funny - although it does seem a bit like The People's Group are setting it up so that The Blue Union can slag Everton off for not signing him yet

Think you will find The People's Group are quite apologetic

I don't really care either way so long as we sign Pienaar at some point.  The "race" to break the news is already over as it's pretty much assured he'll sign at some point.

Let's hope with more too

Fenerbahçe have stepped up efforts to sign Porto's Rolando after again failing to agree a price with Everton for Joseph Yobo.

The Istanbul giants are unwilling to meet Everton's €3 million valuation and are becoming increasingly frustrated with the lengthy negotiation process.

According to reports from Portuguse media sources, Fenerbahce have tabled an offer for Ronaldo and are willing to pay the 26 year old defender €2.5 million per season. The Istanbul based club have also set aside €10 million for the transfer fee of the powerful centre back.

Ronaldo's has 3 years remaining on his contract with Porto and has a market value of €12.500.000

Rolando made 26 appearances for Porto last season and was included in Portugal's Euro 2012 squad which reached the semi finals.

If this is true, they have F'd us in the A and pulled out over our tits.

The ambition of Nigeria's captain, Joseph Yobo to secure a permanent move to Turkish Super Lig giants, Fenerbahce has hit a snag.

English Barclays Premier League side, Everton, have insisted on a £4 million transfer fee for the 31-year-old.

But the Turkey club have made it clear that they are ready to pay an outright sum of £2 million for Nigeria's most capped player.

SuperSport.com was informed by a close confidant to Yobo that Fenerbahce are still keen on signing him on a permanent deal and are exploring options of meeting up with the £4 million valuation.

Fenerbahce are looking at using their performance in the Uefa Champions League as a bargaining chip should Everton allow Yobo join them for an initial knockdown fee plus add-ons.

"Fener really want him, so they are making other arrangements hinging on how far they go in the Uefa Champions League to make the payment," SuperSport.com was told.

But talks between the Nigerian centre-back and Everton have broken down badly in the past days leading to Fenerbahce signing Turkey defender, Egemen Korkmaz, on a free in June from rivals, Besiktas, on a three-year deal.

The Yellow Canaries are also looking at prizing away another defender, Rolando from FC Porto should they fail to finalise a deal for Yobo before the summer transfer window closes.

Yobo has spent the last two seasons on loan at Fenerbahce.

Two English sides, Leicester City and Norwich City have been linked to the Nigerian defender.

I think this all started with Anton Powers: https://twitter.com/AntonPowers/status/227393681634754562 (https://twitter.com/AntonPowers/status/227393681634754562)

NYRB already have two DP's (those pricks Henry and Marquez). Need to spend $175,000 to get the third DP slot, plus transfer fees, THEN wages. Can't see them spending all that when they really don't need him.

But, if Shorty says it's true now...

Losing Cahill isn't such a massive blow as it would've been three years ago, hopefully most people see he's past it now. He's been a good servant of the club and deserves a payday.

Hmm, in a way. I'll be glad to get Pienaar signed, but it's the thing I hate most about loan deals, we're spending money to get someone we already had, so not really strengthening the squad over last season, in fact we're actually having to get rid of players just to keep someone we already had.

This can't be true i just don't get that

Without meaning to sounds like an ITK (cos I'm not) I spoke to a Sky Sports journo last week who mentioned Johnny might be leaving to Beskitas or somewhere else in Turkey.

I didn't post it at the time as I have had enough of random internet rumours this summer, plus I had not seen it mentioned anywhere else all summer either /9and I agree it didn't really make sense) but it does seem to have some legs now.

Hopefully it would be for more than £4.5million. But he is a replaceable player and I would trust Moyes to get 2-3 decent players with his transfer fee.
Title: Re: The ITK Thread (First Post Regularly Updated With New Info)
Post by: Verm on July 24, 2012, 05:33:12 AM
Would be dissapointing to lose Johnny too but I think (price considered) the only truly irreplacable players in our squad are Jelavic, Baines and Fellaini.

After Jelavic, Heitinga is the player I'd least like to lose.

I'm telling you now, if Heitinga goes then we will go absolutely nowhere next season.

There is just no point in selling him.

Maybe Moyes feels Duffy is ready to deputise for Jags and Distin and will use the money to bolster the attacking options.

I feel like he'd have to be insane to think like this.

Heitinga holds that defence together, and he went a long way in seeing our defence attain the third best record in the league following the drastic improvement which was evident following Heitinga's inclusion in our defence.

Jags and Distin aren't an assured partnership at all, IMO.

I really don't think there's any truth in this. Reeks to me. Two days after backtracking on saying Baines was DEFINITELY sold to United a month ago, the same source (a known board-basher who once said Fellaini to Chelsea was a done deal) is now telling us Heitinga is gone for a minuscule fee the same day we're told Pienaar has rejoined.

Could be a very good shout, I don't recall him signing an extension. If he has 1 year left, then we might be at a crossroads of new deal or sell.

I would still think we could get close to the fee we paid and maybe slightly over, but not a lot more.

I have seen a few people linking Johnny to Inter for 10mil but that honestly doesn't make any sense. If we were truly in for Luc Castaignos we probably would have switched Johnny for cash + Castaignos if they were interested. Would have helped us get a player and cash. I think that Johnny will be around this year unless we get a great offer.

I'd hate to lose Heitinga even if it meant we were making a 10m profit on what we paid, never mind making a 1.5m loss!

He's still young, has a couple of years left and is in miles better form than he was in when we signed him. Makes no sense to sell him right now

Post by: Ross on July 24, 2012, 02:18:23 PM
I reckon we'd do well to get £10m for Heitinga, for that sort of money I think we could easily find a replacement and have money left over for a right sided midfielder.

It's his goal scoring we would miss.

I don't know what it is, but something changed in Johnny last season, he came across a lot better, and it seems he now really cares about Everton. You can tell by his tweets, interviews and always being the last player on the pitch applauding the fans, that Heitinga finally "get" Everton.   Which is why I think there is no way he will be leaving just yet.

I have a feeling that Cahill was sold for Pienaar and if he doesnt come there's gonna be some VERY pissed people on here. For me its his demands that might break the deal off but if he realises what the club are doing to get him here he needs to realise how much he means to them. And then again this might inflate his ego and hence his demands!! We shall see.

But on the bright side, you're now a happily married man with your life ahead of you. Don't let Everton get you down.

What will be will be. I still expect we'll get Pienaar, Yobo will go, and we'll probably pick up one or two shrewd loans or freebies.

Stracq was a loan, it just expired. McFadden was just released not sold.

Stories are picking up pace because people are replicating them on forums, which then spread back on Twitter, creating a false sense of confirmation, eventually they will be reported by the mainstream media, at which point everyone accepts them as fact.

Twitter isn't the source of the problems but it acts like a Petri dish full of nutrients brain-sapping viruses can use to grow and multiply.

Silva, Baxter, Wallace and Hahnemann weren't even part of the squad, so their leaving doesn't make the squad any thinner. McFadden's contribution was negligible, so if we'll have Pienaar back, that leaves us with three players who leave any kind of gap to fill: Cahill, Drenthe and the Straq.

Naismith will be the obvious replacement for Cahill, with Vellios, Junior and Barkley probably getting more game time and Rodwell hopefully staying fit for a longer part of the season, we're not looking any worse off on numbers.

Drenthe's pace and directness is what we're going to miss sorely.

I expect us to try and get rid of the dead wood, then buy Pienaar, then add at least one quality new addition.

I don't think getting rid of the dead wood is a pre-requisite for buying Pienaar, it just makes sense to try and conduct our business like that at the moment. If I am right, then you couldn't really blame the board for going about it this way IMO. It makes sense to do it that way.

And the other stumbling block is that I doubt Moyes can 'guarantee' him first team football, which would be important to us too if we improve his wages.

I'd be livid if he went for £4.5m. If we needed the money so badly, I'd like to think we'd sell Coleman and Victor first. He certainly hasn't appeared to be stamping his feet and looking for a move recently, infact he's been 'Mr Everton' with his tweets - COYB, etc.

Seems weird the rumours we're actively trying to sell him, he'd need replacing if he left.

He always posts in good faith and definitely has a contact in the Yobo camp, but he's so pro the Agents team that I sometimes wonder if his 'mate' is using him as a mouthpiece to put pressure on the EFC side of negotiations. Just recently he's been saying that the Everton team are at fault for being intransigent in their demands. It now appears that it's the Turkish side that is the problem, so much so that Yobo himself has lost faith in them.

Sheedy seems a decent guy and his intentions appear honourable, but perhaps lately he's been leaving himself open to manipulation. I therefore take his stuff with a pinch of salt.

Ignore radio city, they know as much as we do !

Doubt for one minute we have been told to trim down the wage bill. Cahill went because it made sense for both him and us. Trimming a high earner who is 32 makes financial sense, whether the club is in financial mess or not.

Now we might not have money to spend and Johnny is coming to his final year and is an area where we have two defenders who can be as good or better. So if we lost him we wouldn't collapse.

If we get 5 million and Moyes brought in two players from his magic sleeve then its will be no problem.

Agreed the 2.5m for Yobo with Fener and we tried to whore Johnny off too, Fener came back reduced their offer for Yobo and offered 4.5m for Heitinga and basically said choose who goes.

I wouldn't be surprised if we were open to selling Heitinga.

He's been in good form but I don't think Moyes rates him too highly and probably believes that his form is temporary and getting a good fee while he's playing well and in his prime might be the best decision.

I just doubt we'd let him go for 5 million. Probably looking for closer to 8 million for him.

Heitinga was only played centre half for consecutive games this season. He never had a chance to nail down a place. He has taken his chance. Jagielka only a better defender on the back foot. Heitinga superior in the air, positioning and ball playing.

It's very similar to comparing terry and Ferdinand at their best. Ferdinand being heitinga and jags terry. We all know Ferdinand was a better player

If its Moyes decision to let all these players go, so that he can use the money to rebuild then fine. My problem is if its to cut the wage bill. Can understand letting Cahill go (if very sad) because of all the young talented players coming through, in midfield.

We don't have that in defence. Duffy is looking like he can come in but he's not to the standard of Johnny Jags and Distin yet.

We all know that there is little or even zilch in the pot for Moyes to use to buy players but if he's been told that whatever cash he generates from sales is there for him to use to build the squad then that puts a different slant on things . In the last 3 years we've sold players and not replaced them so this is at least a tiny step in the right direction ...? I'd trust Moyes more than anyone to find a few gems .. Don't forget, not many of us were going out partying when we 1st signed Jelavic, arguably he finished last season as the Prem's most potent striker, .. If the cash brought in is just swallowed up again then how many 'happy clappers' will we see next season. ?

Disagree, Johnny was great in his first season, it was only after South Africa that he had his form slump.(maybe Moyes is expecting a similar slump post Euros?) We should also remember that JH was played out of position in the DM role when he had his form slump. I think we wouldn't have seen poor form had he been played as a CB.

Would rather see JH as Everton captain than Jags to be honest...and as its been said, selling Jags would give us a much larger profit margin since we bought him for less and would sell him for more(since he's English) than JH.

Moyes persisted with Jags and Distin and largely dropped Heitinga after the world cup final. The chances he got playing were in midfield, where he isn't a midfielder at all. That's what caused his drop in form.

If you think Heitinga is superior in the air to Jags then you haven't been watching very closely.

If there is one thing that Heitinga lacks it's ability in the air and defend against target-men.

The only way jagielka is better is if your criteria was the ability to lump the ball up field.

What's with today's supporters?  We find a player who can PASS a football and you want to flog him?

The same type of supporter thinks that if they see a last ditch saving tackle then that player is the greatest defender on the planet ignoring the woeful positioning that created the chance in the first place!

EVERTON believe they can hold onto John Heitinga despite Fenerbahce’s attempt to lure the defender to Istanbul.

The Turkish club have made a surprise £5.5m move for the Dutch international, as they are currently also in talks over a bid for Joseph Yobo, and hope the offer of a big pay-day and Champions League football next season could clinch Heitinga’s signature.

However David Moyes does not want to sell the 28-year-old, and is focusing on adding to his squad by making progress with his bid to sign Steven Pienaar on a permanent deal this week.

The Blues boss is not open to offers for any of his squad – Yobo aside – after agreeing to let Tim Cahill join New York Red Bulls for £1m on Monday.



Though the Turkish club’s move for Heitinga has muddied the waters, the ECHO understands they still want to sign Nigerian captain Yobo and negotiations for that deal rumble on.

Fenerbahce, who were runners-up to Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Lig league last term, also signed Liverpool frontman Dirk Kuyt, 32, in June.

But they are not the only club monitoring Heitinga’s situation, with interest in Everton’s 2011/12 player of the season also coming from clubs in Italy and Russia.

Heitinga is under contract at Goodison until summer 2014, and has been keen to reiterate publicly that he is not looking to leave Merseyside before the new season.

his future, it makes sense to unload Johnny, because as we all know EFC are potless. God knows how the Sky money
due next month has been assigned and Jags appears not to have any admirers.
 

From what I saw of Duffy last year, who I thought looked the real deal, he needs game time this season to improve and take over from Distin in time.   

Is it now three consecutive season that Billy Liar has not spent serious money over the summer break?

Yes Johnny can pass the ball but his first job is as a defender. As such I would pick the best defender every time and that's Jags. I like Johnny and don't want him to go but if we were offered decent money (£10m) then I would take it every time. Other thing to remember is Johnny was only ever coming to everton as a stepping stone to elsewhere - he was always unlikely to stay forever.

I think we really do need to keep hold of all 3 of our senior CB's unless an unrealistic bid comes in. Johnny does not want to leave us, he's happy now he's playing in his preferred position so letting him go for £5m is just not on. This will probably be Disty's last season and by the end of next season Jags will be getting on a bit, can't see the point in selling the youngest of our 3 first choice CB's for a pittance .  It's a lose lose situation

Agree with this but sad reality is that we have to sell to buy and Heitinga is one of our saleable assets and we have cover though its limited..centre half is the position i'm always the most confident about cos Moyes was one himself so knows it inside out.

Not sure Heitinga for 5m is a saleable asset. If they offered 10m then you have money to buy an equally good replacement and still have cash to fund other purchases/wages. Selling Baines for 15-20m is more of a saleable asset.

has flogged/ leased away nearly every asset other than Goodison;
seems unable despite a herculean effort of 24/7 over ten years to get one serious bid for the club;


Then the club has to flog players to raise money. If Heitenga attracts a bid, then he has to be flogged. As Jags seems not to attract any
interest then he can stay. Simple really.

English disease mate.  Bulldog spirit 'n' all that

It's not though. For instance I think Rio Ferdinand is one of the best defenders of the generation, and was the top centre back for a while. I believe Terry has never been and never will be near Rio's level when at his best. Rio's ability on the ball from centre back was and still is unparalleled.

I believe Jags is better than Heitinga in a lot of areas, but more importantly he is better for what you need to be able to do in England. Heitinga is at his worst when he is up against a Bobby Zamora type striker, someone who is strong, physical and can hold the ball up. Heitinga lacks the power, strength or aerial ability to compete with them. In England it is such a quick and physical league that the stronger the physical attributes you have, the more chance of being a top player you have.

Jags has superior speed, aggression in the air, better leap, better aerially in general, better anticipation in dangerous positions, recovery speed is probably the best around, timing of a challenge, he won't be outmuscled, he wont be outpaced. He will rarely come against any type of forward he can't get the better against. He may lack the ability on the ball that Heitinga has, but apart from that there isnt an abundance of defensive attributes where Heitinga is stronger.

For me people forget how good Jags was. He struggled after injury and after Lescott left but played a lot of games in that time when carrying a persistent injury. The last few months of the season, after the Anfield derby onwards, he was back to his best, and pretty much forced his way into the team over Distin.

Put it this way, if Heitinga is being linked for 5m with clubs, why isnt someone like Arsenal banging down the door to get him. If Jags had been available for 5m last summer or even the 10m they wanted to pay, they would have snapped him up. And I reckon if you offered every club in the league the choice of either, most managers would pick Jagielka because he has been a top centre back in the league season after season since he signed for us and will continue to be so for a long time yet.

For me people forget how good Jags was. He struggled after injury and after Lescott left but played a lot of games in that time when carrying a persistent injury. The last few months of the season, after the Anfield derby onwards, he was back to his best, and pretty much forced his way into the team over Distin.

Put it this way, if Heitinga is being linked for 5m with clubs, why isnt someone like Arsenal banging down the door to get him. If Jags had been available for 5m last summer or even the 10m they wanted to pay, they would have snapped him up. And I reckon if you offered every club in the league the choice of either, most managers would pick Jagielka because he has been a top centre back in the league season after season since he signed for us and will continue to be so for a long time yet.

Yep, pretty much spot on there for me.

It's not though. For instance I think Rio Ferdinand is one of the best defenders of the generation, and was the top centre back for a while. I believe Terry has never been and never will be near Rio's level when at his best. Rio's ability on the ball from centre back was and still is unparalleled.

I believe Jags is better than Heitinga in a lot of areas, but more importantly he is better for what you need to be able to do in England. Heitinga is at his worst when he is up against a Bobby Zamora type striker, someone who is strong, physical and can hold the ball up. Heitinga lacks the power, strength or aerial ability to compete with them. In England it is such a quick and physical league that the stronger the physical attributes you have, the more chance of being a top player you have.

Jags has superior speed, aggression in the air, better leap, better aerially in general, better anticipation in dangerous positions, recovery speed is probably the best around, timing of a challenge, he won't be outmuscled, he wont be outpaced. He will rarely come against any type of forward he can't get the better against. He may lack the ability on the ball that Heitinga has, but apart from that there isnt an abundance of defensive attributes where Heitinga is stronger.

Heitinga as I would recall had a serious interest from Bayern Munich last season or was it world cup year. Looking back at Heitinga he has had one good year of defending in his past 4-5 years, not his fault because most of the time he was played out of the position. But given a run at CB he has always performed well there, very few mistakes from him. Although he is slow but according to me has a better footballing brain than jagielka and has good positional sense.
As for comparing their aerial strengths, I generally think Jagielka commits mistakes when the ball is over his head and even he struggled against John Carew.

Heitinga was linked with Bayern...mainly because he came out publicly and said he would be interested if Bayern wanted him! If they had they could have bought him, couldnt see us turning down a decent offer for him whereas there was no way Moyes was going to sell Jagielka for less than 18m last summer.

Thats where Jags is at his weakest, his only big fault, aside from passing, is he does mis-judge balls over the top too often...normally against RVP! But that is it, everything else he is very good at. And to be fair we were awful at defending John Carew, neither Jags or Lescott got to grips with him which is why we struggled to beat Villa at that time.

That was retweeted by this mero chap.
Also, apparently the MLS transfer window is closing on Friday, if they're gonna do it they need to get their arses into gear.

That said, can you still sell a player if you window is closed? I thought it was only a window for incoming transfers.

Can anyone clarify please? :)

But I if I "was" a player at EFC, I'd probably have more of a clue about what's going on in terms of transfers(or if you being convinced to stay, the gaffer would give you a clue at least) and even if you didn't know, it's not even August yet, let alone deadline day.

We always finish the season on a high (well, for the last few years).
then we have a poor summer in the transfer window and a general air of gloom settles around the club. Starting with the fans, then the media, then the players.
Then when we are halfway through the season Moyes' teams best qualities shine through - battling underdogs - and we pull away to a good modd come May.

For a fleeting moment i thought this summer was going to buck the trend and we would get 2 or 3 in during July.
I thought top 5 was a possibility.

I think if things dont change soon we will have a poor start, finish strong and come in the top half.

Taking a lot less for Yobo than Fener previously agreed to would cost us a lot more in the long run. If we can get strongarmed and snookered by the likes of Fenerbece, every club in the world will look at us as an easy mark.

Do agree with the second part though.

Right because the guy who said Bily was signing weeks before anyone else even started hearing his name is like newsnow. Whatever, you have your opinion. Those who know him, know he knows more than he lets on.

Sorry I'm not trying to be argumentative here. Its just all that is either common knowledge or common sense.

Do you actually know him? In real life?

You say "those who know him, know he knows more than he lets on", so do you known where he gets this information from?

Also Bily was linked for awhile in the press and on the Internet before anything was done, again it's hardly breaking news.

Not in real life but everyone he knew him on the forum he was on, knew how good he was. He used to post more information on there at times, then that stopped. I'm not sure on the specific reasons but more and more people just went on there to troll him and then there was something about journalists, I think. The Bily thing was that absolutely no one had any inkling of any story related to the guy being linked to Everton, let alone know he was. Lcab broke that story before the press were linking us to him and about him leaving. Also he wrote about Donovan and others.

No matter how well informed genuine ITK's are , deals do have a tendency occasionally to fall apart at the last minute no matter how well intentioned both parties are. Unforeseen spanners do occasionally get thrown in the works which can make the ' ITK' seem foolish

There has been many times when LCAB has been wrong though. For instance when he said Donovan was 100% coming back on loan the year he didn't. He had it as a dead cert and then when it never came off he said it was something to do with Donovan getting a scouser pregnant so he didnt want to return.....something like that.

He has got some kind of source but I dont think hes as much inside the club as he makes out. I think he may be a 3rd or 4th party. The guy definately has an inside source though.

No. Always said Moyes was staying. Hasn't said much about Yobo but said talks were progressing. Also said Pienaar will sign but hasn't give a time frame and has said to be patient.

Presumably something takeover related.the pictures were an Arab,the Allianz arena and a fat cat. Probably saying That rich Arabs are buying clubs. He goes on to post a link about footballing finances showing Man City made a £200m loss last year practically. I presume Kenwright is meant to be the fatcat?

Colin is a massive Everton fan , since before you were born and has nothing but the best interests of the team and the fans at heart.
Without the input of Colin and a few others the bullshine that the board and its paid advisors spouted would have gone through without question and we'd have walked into the biggest millstone that ever could have been hung around the clubs neck,  ie 'Desperation Kirkby' If you've read the transcript of the public enquiry you'll know what I mean.
In this instance I don't know what the cryptic message is behind his tweets but I'd be interested to find out,

Original, accurate information.

Merro is always 30 minutes behind everyone else, he just repeats other people's information and claims it as his own, and gets so much wrong because he commits without thinking. Been telling everyone for 5 days that Heitinga is "gone" (why isn't that on the top post?).

I doubt it's a takeover

More along the lines of a rich arab (potentially airlines) wants to build a stadium for Everton and Liverpool to share at the heart of the "Football Quarter" which will make money for the boards of both clubs as well as the arabs themselves through using "non-football" activities as well as rental payments to fund the project

This will of course fail due to the HUGE numbers of fans on both sides too ignorant to even discuss a shared stadium

If it is something along those lines then any fan who opposes it needs their head checking.

hahaha, talk about ridiculous logic.
so he is not a fan of being a junior partner in a stadium he was a rabid Kirkby fan.


People speak about the Allianz because with limited knowledge they think shared stadiums are good.
Theyre not - the mausoleum (Italian piss take for the san siro) is another white elephant.

A smaller team with an average attendance of about 25k (so just 40k empty seats then) can work sharing a stadium with a bigger club.

but any stadium us and Liverpool build would have to be too small for them and too big for us

Well, as long as there is something in the running of the club worth highlighting, then groups like KEIOC need to exist.

No problem with their opposition to Kirkby, I voted against it. More their perpetual evolution and finding new things to be opposed to. They think they're the white knights of Everton.

disagree there son we as fans should be backing groups like keioc that are looking out for the clubs and fans best interests.

why do we need another centre back? we have three decent ones already and Duffy will eventually need a shot at it. Also thought Moyes stated a while back that Rodwell required experience in midfield before going to the position he was supposed to be destined for - centre back.

Distin 35 and one year deal signed. Heitinga making noises to clubs in europe about a move including Inter. Duffy lacks the pace to make it in the premier league in my opinion. We are ok at the moment but if Heitinga is to go or not we will need to replace Distin at some point soon.

There's a couple of clubs been linked with him but I don't think he's come out with one his "flattered" comments recently?

He hasnt come out and said it. But a few weeks ago someone said Fenerbahce had bid 4.5m but he was holding out for a move to Inter. 2 weeks later Sneijder comes out saying he would like him at Inter, to me that seems like he has told Sneijder to make those noises to Inter and put it in the press so doesnt look like it is coming from him.

Heitinga has learned to play politician these days and not to come out with stuff like that.

From the looks of it, he has no intention of signing another contract, has 2 years left. Now would probably be the optimum time to sell if that is the case. And by all means, it does look like Everton are looking to sell him.

Inter is looking a likely destination, especially with Sneijder sounding out the move publicly now too.

Would like that Zapata as a replacement if he is on a free. Money to be spent elsewhere in squad then.

Fourth Official's profile pictures are often just players subject to speculation, for example before it was Pienaar (now) it was Robin Van Persie.

If that is true then I hope he goes to Inter since they will have more money to throw at us since AC's owner needs money for his political campaign and struggling business. But I will happily welcome a bidding war for Tinga although the war will be more like the battle of Artemisium than the Battle of Hastings.

- Naismith joined (Fourth Official, John Merro, LCAB, THT and Shorty)
- James Wallace to Tranmere (Fourth Official)
- Joao Silva joins Levski Sofia (Fourth Official) (called a loan isntead of permanent transfer but called he was leaving and correct club)
- Baxter gone (Fourth Official, John Merro, Shorty)
- Everton accept Bid for Tim Cahill from New York Red Bulls (John Merro, Shorty)
- Fee agreed for Pienaar (Fourth Official, John Merro, LCAB + THT)

I have sort of grown to love Heitinga over the last season and would be sad to see him go. Saying that, he is replaceable and is a sellable asset. Hopefully the Milan clubs will give us enough for a CB and a right midfielder!

This transfer window is going pretty well so far-im actually looking forward to next year now. It's all going to end in tears knowing us

He is going to cost too much, and to be honest I doubt he would accept the transfer. Dempsey has said before he would only leave for CL football. Unfortunately for us we cannot offer that. Seeing how Dempsey is a loyal guy as well it seems even more far fetched he would leave them for us after his quotes.

Agreed.
If we want him, best case I can see is him staying at Fulham, then joining in January for a smaller fee after we've(presumably) signed Donovan.
Then again, I'm not sure how much of a pull it would be for him to come here just for Donovan an Howard considering the lack of CL football. I would think it could only be a good thing for the USMT mind you.

And of course, it still requires us to sign Donovan which isn't a certainty from what I can see.

Dempsey does well at Fulham because the team is built around him. I think he's a good player and he knows the prem but that's no guarantee he'd settle. Unless he came in and scored 10-15 goals in his first season, he'd be a waste of money.

Can't see us signing Dempsey and Donovan ? We don't need both do we really.. Unless Naismith has been signed as a squad player?

The way I see it..
Pienaar plays on the left
Fellaini will be playing ACM allowing Rodwell to play cm
Naismith will be either RW or ACM
Donovan if signed would be RW or can play ACM LW CF
Then there's also Osman Barkley guaye and jnr...

Where would Dempsey fit into that? Obviously having options is great but were too skint to spend money on Dempsey when we don't actually need players in that area

Dempsey was playing as a striker for Fulham towards the end of last season I thought?

Also, what's with this satisfaction with having a good 1st 11 with no quality on the bench?

I can take the view that Dempsey wouldn't be likely to come if he were to just sit on the bench, but if he was on our bench, clearly we'd have a much stronger side...what may I ask is wrong with that?

Couldn't imagine Naismith would keep Dempsey on the bench mind you...especially since Naismith is coming back from injury.

There is nothing wrong with that. In fact it would be brilliant and if we had new money/owners I would expect that but the truth is we penny pinch and can't afford the signings we make therefore we can't spend our penny's buying a Dempsey when we have ample players to play there especially if donovan came.

If baines is off, he'd be going for a kings ransom. What Oviedo would cost us, we'd have plently left for improving other areas of the team, or servicing the debt for another year (or lining Greens pockets) depending upon which way you swing......

Bidwell and Garbutt are not ready for the big time yet. Garbutt I suspect is close, physically, mentally and skills wise but needs more experience to cut out the mistakes he is still prone to.

Agree we should be concentrating on the right hand side of our team.I know this is off topic but does anyone else think we have'nt had enough actual game time for our first team this pre-season?Worrying about our match sharpness at the start of the season,luckily we only play man u first game :P

 Don't think Oviedo will come to warm the bench -gives me a bad feeling about Baines as Moyes did go to Copenhagen himself.


So how good is Oviedo? I know zero about Danish football

I get the impression that people want us to sell Baines just to have yet another fucking moan.

Why is it when an "ITK"  announces Baines dosent want to go and we dont want to sell people dismiss it, yet soon as they read were in for a LB they read it as Baines going.

I know a few users on here that would happily see us relegated to non-league football and Goodison burnt down (by Knewright, of course) just so they could tell us they told us so.

He is a great player - as Baines he is best going forward, allthough he doesn't have the ability to score that Baines has. Most PL clubs would see an improvment in having him - not us though. Still don't think he will come if Baines is still around. Oviedo is from Coasta Rico and was part of the U20 team that finish 4th in the World in 2009.

I would like to sell him if we get a great offer, but not just for a moan like most on here b/c it would help us to improve our team overall.....(waits to tarred and feathered)

I wouldn't sell for anything under 15mil though. As I have said in previous threads if we got 15mil it would allow us to get a LB replacement (although not as good as Baines b/c in our eyes few if any are as good) and a good RM with some cash leftover for a rainy day

I wont have a go at your opinion, as to where selling Baines is concerned, "even though I disagree". We need to see Baines Pienaar and the new strike force linking up to see how it all gels. If it doesn't work out? (even though I can't think of any reason why it wont,) he can be sold next year if necessary.  28 next season  is a good age for a fullback. you never know we might actually do something this season and we don't want to regret selling our best defender if we make it into Europe.

Post by: NYToffee on August 03, 2012, 01:11:17 AM
Not ITK per se, but ESPN's US National Team blog - locked behind a paywall - has a post on why Landon could leave this January. Includes speculation from a league source (and remember, the league owns Donovan's contract).

Here's the relevant excerpt:

Quote
Call it educated speculation, but more than one league insider told us that they don't think Donovan will be in MLS next season. The more we thought about it, the more it started to make sense. Here are four reasons why:

1. Donovan could use a change of scenery With a league scoring title, MVP award and four championships under his belt before the age of 30, Donovan has nothing left to accomplish in MLS (individual records aside). After leading David Beckham, Robbie Keane and the rest of the high-profile Galaxy to the mountaintop in 2011, Donovan admittedly lost motivation. His play picked up recently following a heart-to-heart with coach Bruce Arena, but a full-time move to Europe could be the challenge Donovan needs -- and one he would relish.

2. He is entering the final year of his contract The chance to test the open market is always appealing to successful athletes, and Donovan hasn't been a free agent since signing with Bayer Leverkusen at age 16. Being the most marketable American player in MLS has actually worked against him over the years by making him more valuable to the league than to European clubs, essentially pricing him out on the international transfer market. This winter, though, the Galaxy must decide whether to sell Donovan at a reasonable rate or risk losing him for nothing in January 2014.

3. LA wants Frank Lampard ... AEG honcho Tim Leiweke, the man who runs the Galaxy, hasn't been shy about his admiration for Chelsea's Lampard, who is available on a free transfer after the upcoming Premier League season. The Galaxy are already at the limit of three designated players, meaning Donovan, Beckham or Keane would have to go to make room for Lamps. Beckham, who turned down Paris Saint-Germain's riches earlier this year to remain in Los Angeles, isn't going anywhere, and he would love to play alongside his former England teammate. Keane's contract is also up after 2013, but following a dismal performance at Euro 2012, the 32-year-old probably wouldn't command a transfer fee higher than Donovan's. After eight seasons with the Galaxy, Leiweke might not stand in Donovan's way if he wanted to leave.

4. ...and Everton wants Landon Donovan He has had two wildly successful short-term stints in Merseyside, so Everton would love to have Donovan -- who says the Toffees are the only EPL team he'll play for -- on a permanent basis. Manager David Moyes hasn't been able to meet MLS's inflated asking price in the past, but Everton earned some good will from the league last week after selling fan favorite Tim Cahill to the New York Red Bulls for a nominal fee. With the stars aligning, the humble club might finally be able to afford him this winter.

We haven't got a clue what Baines' wants to do (you can't believe those ITK's after all) and if Moyes wants, or needs to sell him. DM has checked out Oviedo personally by all accounts so there's possibility he's a target.

I don't think anyone was advocating the sale of Baines just to have a moan about it.

Whether we find the money and he is ours come January or we wait until he's free in 2014 I am happy. If he decides to stay in the MLS and sign a new contract I would be surprised.

Bainsey has shown his loyalty and class by not openly pushing for a move like lescott did, despite the best efforts of the Manchester press. He's happy at Everton and I'm convinced that he'll only go if we're offered £20m+ , an offer we couldn't refuse

Apparently China realized about 20 years ago that if they wanted to rule the world they could not do it through war and invading other countries through military means. Try decided on economic takeovers and of you go to most countries anywhere inthe world you will realize that the majority of small businesses even in your local area are Chinese owned.

This realfbloke is going to regret mentioning anything about everton!our fans more than any other on twitter tend to bombard any possible itk's!hes already been asked about a million questions since that revelation earlier. Seems very similar to that daisy cutter fiasco of last year.  My bet is that this time next year we will not have been taken over.

And I think Vellios does have twitter Shogun. Though I get the feeling you aren't being serious.  This place is like the matrix these days, I just don't know what or who is real

I work at CSL most of our sofas come from china and they recently introduced some new colour leathers, one of which was blue. Another was pink like our away kit sometimes is, they already had black like our current away and cream/white like the 3rd kit. Surely that all speaks volumes.

You lot ridiculing the blue union need to have a really good look at yourselves.

For years kenwright has been taking the piss out of evertonians with his bull shit and most of the posters on her have lapped it up because bill is a blue.  They buy his luvvie stories and reinforce his position as the leader of plucky little Everton.

Instead of applauding people who want better than a 1m net spend year after year in an outdated stadium you sit behind your pc's and   These people have invested their own time in an effort to make Everton better than a piss poor plucky outfit in the shadows of their neighbors.

The stupid posts look like they are written by twelve year olds and very rarely relate to the original post.

Grow up and wake up.  Go and do yourself a massive favour, read the multitude of publications containing contradictions and bullshit and then come back.

Nicely sums up where the the support for the BU falls down. Far to many unofficial mouthpieces like yourself on the internet posting the same shite over and over again, calling people children and BK lover just because they don't support the BU.

For the umpteenth time, just because someone doens't support the BU doesn't mean they support Kenwright.

Would it not have to be called as official EGM and elected to the board by the shareholders, although that would be a formality I think given the one share one othe system that's in place, could someone who is a shareholder or knows more than me confirm or set me straight?

Doesnt it say at the bottom of the EGM notice that some members had to leave due to family problems etc and that nominations had been put forward as a result

"Note 1: Four of the current members of the Executive Committee of the Association have advised us that they are unable to continue to serve the Committee, due to personal reasons and professional commitments. Three additional nominations have been received, therefore an election will not be required to determine membership of the Executive Committee for 2012/2013. Details of the members of the Executive Committee will be available for information at the Annual General Meeting."

The meeting on the 13th is for the shareholders association not the clubs board etc. So unless our rumoured Chinese chum is starting really small I imagine its nothing at all to do with investment, infact it is the SHA's agm.

The lack of ITK info in this thread being replaced with internet warrior tiffs is making me sad.

Perhaps a dedicated NSNO Thunderdome thread in the Lower Burrens for internet warriors to fight in might be way to curb the issue?

Or maybe people just need to stop being twats.

It's true what you say Bally.

It never ceases to amaze me that in this day and age we still have uneducated, moronic bellends in society

To be successful in this quest to help our football club you need intelligent, reasoned arguments preferably with evidence of where the club is failing (not just hearsay and rumour) and with realistic, achievable solutions maybe as part of a four/five year plan. What it doesn't bees is fucking uneducated little cunts shouting vile abuse at each other, BK or whoever. Regular match going fans who don't know what's going on need to be educated not coerced into following the cause.

I wouldn't say that. Their next few decisions will make or break them though. They've got to have a protest during the transfer window imo. It'd make a huge statement of intent

What would the protest be about?

A large number of Evertonians feel that keeping Baines and bringing Pienaar in would be a good window - adding Naismith is seen as a massive bonus in a lot of people's eyes

It's been drummed into fans that Everton have to sell to buy - by the Blue Union themselves half the time - and now the majority of fans accept that because we have "gambled" by keeping Baines, we can't afford to bring anyone in.  Because Baines is a fans' favourite, that isn't seen as a bad thing by the majority.

As was shown, protests only get big support when something bad has happened. The calls for the first protest came after Arteta was sold, the second protest saw around half the amount marching as the first - because we had signed Jelavic.

The protest would be about the continued lack of investment by our unscrupulous board members. They need regular protests regardless of what is going on, otherwise they look like reactionaries. Support is kind of irrelevent, as long as atleast a few hundred turn up the protests will always attract media attention and that is the main thing imo.

Yobo deal done

http://www.evertonfc.com/news/archive/2012/08/06/yobo-completes-move (http://www.evertonfc.com/news/archive/2012/08/06/yobo-completes-move)


Joseph Yobo has completed his permanent transfer from Everton to Fenerbahce.
 
The Nigerian defender had been on loan at the Turkish outfit for the past two seasons and he has now signed a three-year deal, leaving for an undisclosed fee.
 
The first of his two loan spells was for the 2010/11 campaign when Yobo helped the Istanbul-based side win the league.
 
He briefly returned to Everton in the summer of 2011 while the two clubs discussed his future, with a second season-long loan ensuing.
 
Last term he played 42 times for Fenerbahce as they finished runners-up in the league and won the Turkish Cup.
 
Yobo said after signing his deal at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium: "I would love to thank Everton and the management of Fenerbahce for reaching a deal. 
 
“My family have settled well in Turkey and enjoy the life there so I'm glad they will be reuniting with friends here.
 
"The permanent switch is done and I am also switching to help the team do well on the pitch. It's been a long journey into achieving this dream and now is the time to pay the club and fans back with a great performance."
 
Yobo, whose Everton contract was set to run until 2014, joined the Blues in 2002, is Nigeria’s captain and made over 250 appearances for the Toffees. He was David Moyes’ first signing as Everton manager.
 
His last game for the Club was in May 2010, a 0-0 draw at Stoke.

Too late mate. That's exactly what they are. Whenever we sell a player, whenever a player is linked away or whenever a player we are linked with moves to someone else, they are on it in a flash with their overtones of failure and doom.

They've definitely made some bad choices mate, particularly in terms of personel, but I don't think they're beyond redemption just yet. One of their biggest mistakes was cancelling the Spurs protest, drove me mad that, but It was done because of fan pressure which I guess is understandable, but if it was me i'd have fucked them off and gone ahead anyway. If the BU do ultimately end up failing, let's hope a better group replaces them.

With the negative side of things that have happened, this wouldn't be the worst move for some of the BU guys who had some good intentions, but saw their efforts executed in a way that divided fans instead of uniting them.

Chill Verm, its a great thread idea!news has slowed down and nothing is happening, criticism is uncalled for!You are merely documenting what people say and if it is accurate, not providing the news yourself!

People are expecting a constant stream of exciting Everton news from trustworthy sources.  This thread has taught us that though the likes of Fourth Official, Shorty and Lcab do get some things right, they are also wrong on lots of other things (fourth official basically saying that the rodallega deal was done, Shorty and Lcab both telling us that Pienaar was going to arrive earlier then he did). Also we have found out that most others are merely pretenders.

You are doing a sterling job verm, keep up the good work

Apparently you didn't understand the sarcasm in John Merro's tweet. It was a joke as well all know Vic isn't worth  8.5mil, but would love for them to just hand us that exact sum for Vic.

True but he even stated the only reason he did that was because there was a lot of speculation around that player at the time of his picture change. He stated numerous times (before Rodellega went to Fulham) that he did not do it due to Everton reasons but because most people thought he would be the next player to sign for a PL club.

P.S. Ram, I do not know why, but due to your picture I envision you as Eddie Guerrero sitting at a computer in WWE/F heaven  just perusing the Everton forum....

We're not going to loan someone who requires a lot of development unless we're going to be signing them permanently at the end of the loan, which wouldn't be the case with Lukaku, so I wouldn't worry.

i hope were not looking at ruiz he is terrible plus we would have to pay loads for him. Personally we should look for relastic targets, tom ince matt phillips, clint dempsey, landon donovan and adam johnson on loan. Dont mean to sound stupid but i think John Guidetti from city on loan with a view to a permanent would be a good ,he played really well on loan at feynoord last season.played 23 times scored 20 goals and the uae 15 from their olympic team he played really well and would be a good young midfielder

I disagree, he's a match-winner. He's also a typical winger, in that he drifts in and out of games and can be inconsistent. Most flair players are though, especially the ones in our price range.

We still needed 2 more players to get back up to the squad levels of last season, which weren't exactly the strongest in the division anyway.

I'd have thought that prior to Rodwell going that we'd have got 2 loans (replacing Drenthe and Denis - and I'm being knd not counting Faddy) later on in the window anyway.

Now that he's gone, I'd expect 3 as a minimum to be coming in.

Look at our bench now and there is almost no "guaranteed" PL players on it; certainly not in the attacking department.

People get far too carried away with looking at the first XI or counting the younger players as being at an adequate level based on them achieving the top end of any potential that they have.

Until we've got 3 decent players in, my optimism for the coming season will be dinted quite considerably.

This. And we were actually pretty lucky, relatively speaking, with injuries last season. Wouldn't be a good idea counting on that luck to hold. We could be looking like a few seasons back when we had a bunch of untested teens on the bench. Maybe even one or two in the starting XI if all does not go well.

Whittingham is a fantastic player as is Morrison. Both make much more sense as Moyes signings than Owen or even Johnson. I would be  pleased with either but in dream land with both. Whittingham in particular is someone I've followed with interest since he was MOM in the youth cup final against Villa when Rooney was sporting his 'once a blue...' T-shirt.

Everton have joined the host of clubs wanting to sign M'Baye Niang and the Caen striker will visit the club this week as he considers a move to the Premier League.

Niang, a 17-year-old who has made two appearances for France Under-21s, has been subject of a failed £5m bid from Arsenal and has also been linked with Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Milan. The teenager trained with Arsenal for a week this summer but, with the Gunners' initial offer rejected by Caen, Spurs and now Everton hope to capitalise with a £6m deal.

The Goodison Park club banked an initial £12m from City for Jack Rodwell on Monday, although the fee could rise beyond £15m depending on club and personal achievements. David Moyes will have the bulk of the £12m to reinvest and wants to add a striker and right-sided midfielder to his squad.

Niang, who can also operate out wide, will meet Moyes and visit Everton's Finch Farm training ground over the coming days as he ponders several career options.

The Everton manager has also enquired about Clint Dempsey but is unlikely to pursue the Fulham forward, who is in the final 12 months of his contract at Craven Cottage and a target for Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

Niang would be a shit hot signing IMO, i know he's young but already he's good and with age will get even better!. But with all those other club interested in him, i doubt we'll sign him.

As for the links to Whittingham & Morrison, i don't mind both players and Morrison would be a good player for us to have down the right and Whittingham would be a good squad filler in midfield.

Niang would be a major, major coup for us. If the price is really £6M, it would surely have to be tempting. Capped (and scored) at the U21 level as a 17-year old, and already with 30 appearances (5 goals) in Ligue 1. Seems to have some physicality (or at least the potential for it) about him, and has played as a centre forward, deeper striker, attacking midfielder, and winger on either side. So, he has the versatility that Moyes seems to like, massive potential by all accounts, and he's already played meaningful first-team games in a major league.

Twitter seems to be suggesting that we're having him on trial this week. Hope it comes off.

Caen striker M'Baye Niang is due on Merseyside this week to tour Finch Farm and undergo a trial with Everton as he weighs up his next career move.

The Guardian report that the French U21 international could be available for £6m and David Moyes is keen on the player who can play up front or wide right.

Arsenal have apparently had a £5m offer knocked back for the 17 year-old starlet and Manchester City, Tottenham and Milan are also interested.

The same report suggests that despite reports to the contrary in the Mail, Moyes will not be following up his interest in Clint Dempsey as he decides where to deploy the funds he will receive from the sale of Jack Rodwell.

This signing would be brilliant.

Someone updated Wikipedia to say that he was playing for Everton at the top, and in the sidebar. I just hit refresh, and both have been replaced with Arsenal.

Methinks that page will get locked soon!

Right, I've got some news from a decent source, Moyes' arl fella, who spoke to my mate in Malaga. Here goes:

The picture of David Moyes at the Etihad was for a meeting with Mancini, to discuss the possible loans of Johnson and Dedryck Boyata.
It was at this point Rodwell was mentioned.

City contacted Everton about Rodwell Saturday evening prior to the Malaga game, hence why he did not play.

As expected, we won't see the whole £12m, but will get some of it to spend.

We've been to watch Matt Phillips 3/4 times, but there are issues if his talent matches his price tag.

If we loan Johnson, we would have to pay his whole wage, so it would be an issue of him taking a paycut.


Only passing on what I've been told, don't like the thought of Boyata as it suggests Heitinga could be off.

Horse poop.

Here come the flames:

Rodwell confirmed himself that negotiations had been taking place for weeks.Moyes was at the Etihad only last week. Also platt confirmed that theyve been monitoring Rodwell sistuation for a long time, i.e. scouting him and enquiring as to his availability.

LCAB yesterday also said the Owen deal was "on" after heavy twitter speculation but Greg O Keefe has since said its a non starter.

When a twitter pic emerged of the new home kit minus the white bands good old LCAB also took to twitter to tell all "the white bands have gone".

It's probably been the summer with the most Everton rumours ever, but since Sunday it has just gone insane!A million things seemingly going on at once and were all looking for this magical person who knows all official information but doesn't mind sharing it with the masses.  Be funny to count how many players are linked with us and linked to leaving us and then seeing what actually has come true at the end of the window.

One man knows what is going on, its not Lcab its not Greg O'Keefe, its not Fourth Official, its not John Merro, its David Moyes.  So I suggest instead of all desperately scrambling round trying to find out which source is reliable and what their past record is like.  Wait for word from the big man, the gaffer himself.

Think there's still a way to go to catch up to the rumor marks set in the Watch This Space and Lescott summers. And, it turned out, David Moyes was also in the dark about some big things then.

You have to worry though that now it's out there, with a rather modest 5.3 fee mooted, that his agents phone will be ringing all day tomorrow.

Not being able to come over until Thursday at the earliest due to the international tomorrow night, is a big concern. You just know something will go wrong in the meantime.

I agree but he seems to me to be one of the worst and yet some hang on his every word! When twitter kicked off about Owen yesterday after a so called "football agent" on twitter said it was a done deal, LCAB was quizzed about it by a few and replied "its on".

When it was then debunked by Greg o Keefe from the echo, LCAB backtracked and said it had "all gone quiet".

As I mentioned earlier the home kit was another pearler. A pic of a nike Everton home kit appeared on twitter in plain blue without the white bands. This led to some to believe that the delay in releasing the home kit, was due to a luke warm response to the leaked official kit with white bands and they were taking them off.

LCAB tweeted "the white bands have gone".

Some choose to believe everything he says, types or tweets though and that is entirely their choice, each to their own.

"Sheedy" on the other hand seems a genuine lad who seems bang on the money with bits and bobs. He has an agent friend who he gets bits and pieces from.

Funny thing is, when Sheedy used to post on Kipper he posted that we were in for N'zogbia last summer. Our good friend LCAB on GOT said we weren't and basically said Sheedy was talking bull.

It then came out in the press and was generally accepted that Sheedy was again bang on and LCAB was again bang off, much to the annoyance of LCAB who seemed to get his knickers in a twist over the whole thing.

You've got to laugh!

Edit; As well as sheedy, there ARE those that seem genuine. We know all about shorty, and you can probably add DAVIDMOYES on GOT as well now. He called Cahill to the red bulls before anyone got wind of it, and earlier today he was the one who stated Mirallas was signing, right out of the blue which is mightily impressive.

Whether the lad signs or not, that won't detract from the fact he put the name out there. I've yet to see any other ITK come out and put a name out there as someone we are signing.

All the others just confirm or deny a player that is already linked which we can all have a go at. To actually come out and say "We're signing Mirallas" is a first as far as i can remember.

Mirallas looks a really exciting player, can play on the wing or as a striker its nice to have players like this. A lot of sources about this kevin mirallas deal so hopefully it has some life in it.

Him and Johnson on loan would be incredible business

Or perhaps they just aren't privvy to every single piece of information?

As for the rest of your post, you've pretty much said the same thing every 2 or 3 pages of this thread.

No but surely if they were really "itk" they would of heard about the deal.

I think the fact that not one of these so called "itk's" mentioned a deal that was actually happening, says an awful lot about them, and proves they really know fuck all about whats actually happening at the club.

Obviously some people hear certain pieces of information and pass it on, hence why there have been correct calls..

As for the Rodwell deal, didn't even see it rumoured anywhere more than a few hours before he'd signed, sounds like it was kept pretty under wraps.

If we sign this mirallas lad why would we need Johnson? I imagine hes being signed to PLAY on the right not sit as backup for AJ who's on loan!
If we wanted a loan for Johnson we would of done it already with the Rodwell deal or perhaps he was a backup if other targets were not signed?

Don't forget Donovan who will/can come in January also..

But perhaps you could put it to good use. Instead of coming onto the ITK thread again and again to denounce ITKs and say they don't exist, you should go onto the "Heskey deal close" thread to assure everyone that Emile Heskey doesn't really exist.

I think we'd all welcome that, no matter how many times you repeated yourself.

I think you've got it right. Get the feeling Moyes would rather have the player than he can buy outright, plus who is much more versatile. There's not really much difference in age (Mirallas is 3 months younger than Johnson), and you would be able to make sure that Mirallas fits into your wage structure, rather than argue with City over who is going to pay what percentage of Johnson's wages. Add to that the Fellaini component, and I think that Johnson is Plan B in case we weren't able to get another forward/winger in. That's why we didn't make Johnson a part of the Rodwell deal; getting first option was actually a pretty shrewd move.

We always dither with transfers though, any leak is bad news for Everton. Fellaini was a bolt out of the blue, it surprised everybody, and has been an excellent signing. If we get linked then it generally means that it's bullshit, or another club will jump in and take him.

Sorry for being a pessimist, but I won't believe any of these signings until they are stood there wearing the shirt.

" DAVID Moyes is monitoring highly-rated s5m Olympiacos striker Kevin Mirallas.

The Blues boss has been pondering a move for the 24-year-old Belgian all summer, but can suddenly join the queue of clubs competing for his signature after selling Jack Rodwell to Manchester City for s12m.

Mirallas, who will play for Belgium in their friendly against Holland tonight, could be available for talks in the next few days, after a potential move to Arsenal appears to have broken down.

Moyes rates the former Lille and St Etienne forward's physicality and ability to run at defenders, and has kept tabs on him as he became top goal scorer in the Greek league last season."

Drenthe weighing up offers
by ESPN staff
Royston Drenthe is considering offers from numerous clubs including Manchester City, Inter Milan and Galatasaray, according to the former Everton winger's agents.

Drenthe is a free agent after his contract with Real Madrid expired earlier this summer. After being on loan at Hercules and Everton in recent seasons, Drenthe's representative Antonio Salerno says the 25-year-old is now hoping for a permanent move to a big club.

"This is the moment we are evaluating the offers. There have been many calls and now is the moment to decide," Salerno told Ilsussidiario.

Whether either of these 2 happen or not, they would be "out of the blue". The first that we'd have heard of them is that one is coming over for a trial and (going of UK press) that the other has had a fee agreed and he'll be here on Thursday for a medical.

Most of our other transfers only seem more sudden as they happen on deadline day and things are naturally quickened up.

Does it, though? If he's just on trial, could it be that we just wanted to have an extended personal look at him, with negotiations to be done after his weekend at Finch Farm?

Not saying it doesn't mean that, though. Just wondering aloud.

Does it, though? If he's just on trial, could it be that we just wanted to have an extended personal look at him, with negotiations to be done after his weekend at Finch Farm?

Not saying it doesn't mean that, though. Just wondering aloud.

Remember Trevor Francis with Cantona on trial at Sheffield wed, let's hope the same doesn't happen  :bonk:

People are too excited about him being at Finch Farm. It doesn't mean a lot. He had a trial at Milan a week or two ago and is heading to London after the trial at Everton.

He also had a Medical with Milan but Milan couldnt agree terms with Caen. I think they wanted a loan rather than buy him outright (why i dont know)

Is this the same o'keefe that didn't know a thing about the Rodwell deal until it was on the official site? Before he announced that it was 15m in transfer fee before a day later he said, actually it's 12m.

Jesus, you are thick, or maybe you cannot read?  One things for sure you are like the drunken old pisshead sat at the end of the bar in some shithole pub, muttering to himself or anyone who makes eye contact.  Constantly repeating yourself, you probably smell of stale piss as well and when you stand up your pants fall down, dignity left years ago. Whopper.

You mate him?  Know him on any level or anything about his journalistic background?  I have and do, he works within the constraints any newspaper has and reports whatever he can whenever he can.  You would know that if you knew anything whatsoever about Everton besides the doctrine you have subscribed yourself too.

Yep we need someone who can pick a pass in the middle imo.

He''s a good player I reckon

I don't mind him and he will be good cover. Won't be on high wages and is deadly from free kicks and set pieces. Much better left foot than even Baines. Jelavic and Cah..Rod.. Fellaini will feed off him.

Would be a decent addition, but there are other areas that need fixing first--like the winger and striker we're supposedly in the final stages with. Not sure where Adam would fit into the first XI if the Mirallas signing comes off, as you'd have Pienaar, Naismith, and Mirallas higher up, with Fellaini and Gibson deeper. I suppose you might prefer Adam over Gibson in some cases, but I don't know that the marginal gain to the team is worth the £5M outlay.

And yes, it does seem like every half-decent (and some not at all-decent) player that is rumoured to be on the move is now being linked with us. Actually feels rather nice, for once.
