Post by: Simon Paul on May 26, 2015, 04:14:34 AM
all in here ladies and gents, if you will


we're going to try and keep a tab of all the players we're linked to as well, so if people can post rumours in here - no matter how tenuous - from today onwards, then we'll keep a list on the main site for a laugh

Might as well start with a good one,  getting linked with nani.....

Big window this for us.

And by that I don't necessarily mean we have to go out and spend 50 million (although that would be nice) but I mean we have to make some meaningful additions.

If we start next season with Barkley or Osman on the left, then I will have a serious issue with that.

I think Cleverly will be signing myself and he will be set up for the position on the left as the long term replacement for Pienaar and Osman, once the cup final is out the way i'd expect his transfer sorted out quickly, i can't see many excited about it but i bet 10 games in to the season everyone pleased with the deal

Why is it that players who haven't scored yet or have gone x amount of games always score against us?? Every time a commentator says a certain player hasn't scored whilst playing us I straight away start swearing at the tv because I then know that twat will score against us!

Although not his hugest fan (and I know some on here rate him, and might well be right), I'd defo take Johnny Evans for 5m which seems to be the suggested fee at the moment. Not sure about Dann really. Always thought he was a bit shit tbh, and he's an RS fan as far as I'm aware.

Post by: GLewis on May 31, 2015, 05:30:20 PM
Yeah Dann is a kopite.

Re Evans I don't think we need another ball playing CB if we assume Galloway will be one.

We need to have someone who is that bit more dominant.

That'd suit for partnering Jags if Stones s out now and also for with Stones in the future.

Although 5m wouldn't be a waste of money.

Ideally for me we'd be getting someone who is the same sort of age that Jags and Lescott were when we signed them.

Good potential for growth in value and a long period in the team/squad.

Tbh I wouldn't have a problem with two ball playing CBs as long as they're willing to stick a foot in, a head in and get dirty. Stones has shown a lot more of that side of his game in recent months, so I wouldn't see it as being a big issue if Jags got injured and we did get Evans (especially for 5m)

What about offering Barca a deal which includes a buyback clause. It seems to be quite common with young players on the continent. If we could get him for, say, 8m with a buyback clause of maybe 12m, everybody wins. We get the player at the sort of price that we can afford. If he develops into a world class monster and looks like he could get into Barca's 1st 11, we make 50% profit having had the benefit of his performances for acouple of seasons and Barcelona get the finished article once their ttransfer embargo is finished. Furthermore the player gets the opportunity to play regular football and develop.

Everton make striker enquiry

Everton have made an official enquiry for Guingamp striker Claudio Beauvue according to the Get Football News France website.

The 27 year old striker has had an amazing season, scoring 23 goals in 47 appearances and has attracted the likes of Everton, West Browich Albion and West Ham United to acquire his services.

The inform striker is certain to leave the French club and speaking to radio station RMC earlier in the year the striker said: The deal I had with the club president was that I would leave in the event of a beautiful season, he said. The season has been very beautiful, so it is sure that I will be playing my football elsewhere next season.

I dont know whether it will be in France or abroad, I do not have a priority. It is true though that I am very attracted to the Premier League. Well see what happens when I get back from holiday in the summer.

I think Barca will insist on a buy back clause in case he becomes the player people expected him to become, however i would expect it to be much higher than that.

Put him in our hands for a bit. If he comes good you can have him back at a price we can both swallow.

With the way he's been playing and the issues he seems to have; the risk is all ours, but still worth it IMO.

Rom told Ross last summer he was going to be signing a few weeks before it actually happened.

I'm not saying this is true I've no idea but its not inconceivable that players are still in touch with him and if it was happening that he might tell the ones he is close to.

Didn't he sign a new contract last year,
Yes and the reason for that is because Martinez said he deserved to be rewarded, so presumably that included a wage increase.

It seems that a lot is made about McCarthy and his contract situation but he's got three years remaining.

A source confirmed to Goal: "This is not about money, in no way shape or form.

"It is about respect, and there is little doubting that James and his representatives feel that that Everton have shown him very little in the past 12 months. It is now a matter of principle."

The fact they didn't same their source is making me very skeptical, as well as it's come from goal.com.

Be arsed worrying about it. If he's unhappy or did want to go, as with anyone else, let him go. He didn't have a particularly good season, and should really be concentrating on getting better as a player, and improving quite a few areas in his game that seriously need improving.

McCarthy said: I have got time on my contract here. As it stands, I am tied down just now anyway. I am happy here. Nothing has changed from day one. I love it and I am still loving life. I have not heard anything. It is new to me if a club is going to come in and buy me in the summer. I have not spoken to anyone. I have not heard anything. The media has done a few stories but I am delighted to be here and I have many years still to come.

If McCarthy had a 2nd season in the same vein as his first, I would have said a new, bigger contract would have been a must. As it is, he missed a good chunk of last season and whilst he was solid, he failed to hit the heights of his first season (for me), so I think we are doing the right thing delaying a new contract (if we are). Let's see how he goes in the first half of next season. He has plenty of years left on his current deal, so I wouldn't panic.

Of course, I am failing to take into account his parasite, who is probably sitting on his shoulder like Salacious Crumb, demanding more .

Post by: hill135 on June 10, 2015, 03:39:03 AM
Hmm, criticism of our players always increases when there is a rumour they are leaving or want to leave.

Granted, some people have long said his game could be more complete and of course it could (but would it be more complete at Everton?). But, some players are integral because, despite their limitations, their discipline, intelligence and work rate serve to give the team balance and make it function properly.

A case in point: Claudio Marchisio. Watch him for 90 minutes he spends most of the game doing the leg work for Pirlo and standing in the right place to block shots and through balls. He's not spectacular and doesn't grab the headlines, but the work he does is absolutely vital to the functioning of his team.

Another example closer to home is Aaron Lennon. We all know he can't cross a ball to save his life but his work rate and fundamental determination to do the basics right made us a more balanced and better team when he was in it, despite the fact that he is not as productive individually as, say, Kevin Mirallas.

I agree with the sentiment, however with mirallas there are direct quotes from him multiple times about maybe needing to leave whereas these are comments from unnamed sources and nothing from McCarthy! So more understandable people's frustration when he comes out making claims.

Title: Re: Summer 2015 Transfer Window rumour thread
Post by: Rhys on June 11, 2015, 01:45:31 PM
Another player in his late 20s though. Very risky signings foreign players at 28 or over who have never played in England before. You generally need to give them a year to settle, adapt to the league and see the second season as when they might be at their best. Of course doesn't always work like that and some settle very quickly and depends on how good the player is, cost etc but always my preference to bring in players who are 25 or under for reasons like retaining value for a few years, potential length of service, time to settle and still be good.

Bily is a good example because we got him when he was 24 and it didn't quite work out, we still got 6m for him so didn't make much of a loss. If you sign bily at 28 and he is 30 when you sell him you get more like 2 or 3m for him.

I guess just been used to the policy of signing people in the earlier stages of their career and either making big profits on them or having them for a long time and we haven't had enough windows with Martinez to see a pattern of what types and age of players he wants to sign more often than not.
Title: Re: Summer 2015 Transfer Window rumour thread
Post by: ally2 on June 11, 2015, 01:58:10 PM
But perhaps you're more likely to get a player that works out if he's older. They've had longer in the game and are more mature. I don't think players need a year to settle in, they should be able to start playing straight away. I've always thought it a bit of an exaggeration about the speed of the game here.

Ok, seriously. That guy had the most assist in any European top league and is a French international.

And people still complain because he's too old at 28? Messi is 27, so if we had a chance to sign him, we shouldn't because he's too old?

I personally don't think we can even get this guy. He's too good for us with no European footy on offer.

The messi comment is irrelevant because of the level of player!

I'm not questioning the player, I've not seen enough of him in general to say its worth doing or not. My point was a wider one based on the number of players we are being linked with this summer who seem to be 28+. We've proven over the years with signings like fellaini, mirallas, arteta, pienaar, jags, Baines, lescott, Cahill etc that it makes more financial sense to sign players when they are younger because of the potential to develop further and increase their value or if we keep them then develop and have excellent long careers with us. We got mirallas when he was 25, had 3 good seasons out of him and would still be looking to at least double the money spent on him maybe even treble it.

Whereas the opposite with kone where ignoring his injuries no matter how well he did with use was always heading down in value and when you don't have huge incomes to spend aside from tv money and player sales it has to be a consideration.

Using payet as an example, if we signed him this summer for say 10m he would never be worth more than that and you are increasing the risk of a bad first season, injury like kone of having less time to make the signing worthwhile. Whereas you sign a 23 year old and that happens you still have big chunk of their career in the peak to come to make them work and/or sell them for more money.
Title: Re: Summer 2015 Transfer Window rumour thread
Post by: Makis on June 11, 2015, 03:13:07 PM
That 23-year old is either much less accomplished or costs twice as much because you are also paying for the potential.

Payet has been excellent in France this season. 7 goals and 17 assists but my reservations are more about his attitude. He's had some issues in France.

Financially, yes. They used the growth of the Premier League to sign some lucrative kit/sponsorship deals; we're still stuck with that awful Kitbag deal. I know it's not the only reason they have money to throw around every transfer window, but it makes a difference. Kenwright / Elstone / whoever really messed that one up.

Otherwise, I agree. Their constant turnover of players and managers is bizarre and counterproductive. They're already cutting ties with Capoue, Paulinho, and Stambouli, from what I gather, not to mention that they spent 26m on a 28-year old striker. The fact that he ended up flopping is almost irrelevant; Soldado was a horrible deal when they made it and even worse today.

I absolutely don't want us to be like Spurs on the pitch. What I want is the ability to sign a player like Erisken for an appropriate fee when he's available and needed.

And yes, the idea of them being in a position to strong-arm us for McCarthy is bizarre and laughable.

Spurs are definitely a bigger draw to a player than Everton but they're not the sort of team we have to worry about them taking our better players. Aside from last season, we've been on a relative par with them in terms of league position over the last decade or so and the way some of their transfers have worked out over the last few years would put players off anyway.

Doesn't seem like the type to kick up a fuss should we reject bids.

Being realistic its only a matter of time before cubs come knocking for him. He is a different class, to be a young English centre half of his age who is that good at defending and on the ball with a good head on his shoulders. If united are interested its hard not to see Chelsea and city coming in as well I'd find it hard for either to pass up in the chance of trying to sign him if someone else was trying.

The good thing for us is loads will want him, we should get huge money if it does happen at some point but most of all he seems really grounded and hopefully he realises he doesn't need to go anywhere yet and his development is going so well he'd be daft to leave just yet just in case he doesn't get the same game time. That said if he went to any of those 3 I'd find it hard to see him not getting in the first choice team he is that good.

CB is still the priority as it was/should've been last season. You're not going to find someone of his quality, with his experience and the right side of 27. Let's hope Martinez did everything he did to sign him.

My worry is he is still not properly looking at CB. Look at the links; Cleverley, Deulofeu, Kagawa, Podolski, Topal...

I don't want him to get some older journeyman in as cover. We need someone who can push Jagielka and Stones for a place. Someone at the right age who's not as young as Stones/Galloway but not as old as Jagielka/Distin/Alcaraz.

I was pro-Richards until I saw the wage Villa agreed to. We can't afford to pay that for someone who doesn't play much CB anymore (he mainly played there as part of a back three last season) and probably doesn't figure in the first eleven.

Don't be discouraged by the relative lack of CB links; most of the names brought up are paper talk and nothing more. Roberto and his team look to be prepared for this window; I have faith that he'll find good cover in central defense, though it will be hard to find anyone who will push Jags and Stones for a starting berth as they are two of the best in the league.

I don't want him to get some older journeyman in as cover. We need someone who can push Jagielka and Stones for a place. Someone at the right age who's not as young as Stones/Galloway but not as old as Jagielka/Distin/Alcaraz.

Richards, even with his wages, would've been ideal.

65k a week for someone who hasn't been good for years with suspect fitness and attitude issues? No thanks!

What message does giving someone like him that money to the likes of jags, seamus, stones etc on less money? If you are giving him that we want it matched! Suddenly your wage bill as gone up 5m a year on just the other defenders!

I'm going to totally disagree with you there.

Having 3 good centre backs is a must Imo. Especially if our goals are to make top 4. Even if our goals aren't to make top 4 it is still necessary to have 3 good CB's on the squad as most of us would like a good cup run, and maybe even a trophy. To do that, we will need more than 2 good CB's and an average one with Galloway, or Browning thrown in there.

I haven't even mentioned the inevitable injuries that will happen to jags and/or Stones over the course of 40+ games in a season. I don't want Stones/Jags and an Alcaraz type player playing in prem games week after week while we wait for Jags/Stones to get healthy.

And which one of those can say they have scored consistent goals at the top level in england over the last 3 years? Scoring goals regularly in the premier league is hard, very few do it and a lot have one good season then never repeat it like Michu for instance. Lukaku has got 53 goals over the last 3 seasons and turned 22 the other week, even fewer score that amount of goals consistently by that age.

Nope.

Ferdinand cost 30mil over ten years ago, so I'd say 50mil is reasonable considering the inflated market and over pricing of English players.

Think he probably needs a full season as first choice to get to 50mil valuations, but we're never selling him for 25 anyway

It's a bit steep. Think Ferdinand proved himself a bit more before he got his record breaking move.

Another good season showing increased maturity and an all round improvement and I think he'll be a 40m player. 20m for current brilliance and 20m potential. This includes future England captain premiums.

Yeah he'd been a star in the World Cup and in the premier league for a good few years including one big move already. So understandable why his value wouldn't be at 50m, but also parts of the reason why it's unlikely he will go as there is no point selling for not huge money because really hard to see him not continuing the development path he is on to that level. Hopefully Roy keeps faith with jones and stalling and doesn't pick him for England next summer!

I would say right now we would want circa 35-40m for him. I dont want to sell him ever. Also there must be better third choice centre backs out there than dann at 8m surely

Given that the player is English, just 21, settled at the club and has another four years left on his contract, Goodison chiefs quite rightly value him at more than the 31.9million Manchester City shelled out to make Eliaquim Mangala the most expensive defender in British football history and are in no mood to sell.

I think I value myself at more than Mangala.

Not really keen on Dann tbh.

Problem is, we are being linked with a fair few centre backs that would be coming here to essentially be 3rd choice, not many of the ones mentioned so far are gonna wanna come here and do that.

Jagielka and Stones is still more than a good enough a partnership for me, so whoever comes in, however big the name (within reason obviously) then I would prefer, and I'm sure he will be seen by Roberto, as just being back up for Jags and Stones.

Not many of the names currently mentioned are gonna wanna come here to sit on the bench.

Vlaar was mentioned, on a free I'd love him here, he is surrounded by shite at Villa, he is a much better player that what it would seem, lots of experience and plenty of caps for Holland, at 30 he is in a good time of his career as far as CB's go too.

Love him here, especially on a free but he wont come here to sit on the bench.

I think more realistically we will end up getting someone from the foreign leagues in the 24-26 age range who is quite happily going to come here and slowly progress into the first team and be ready for when Jags finishes.

I don't realistically see us spending the reported 8-10M on Dann, and would be pissed off if we did tbh.

I'd like to think we could get this 3rd choice centre back either as a Vlaar type character free agent with plenty of experience aged 29/30 or if we have to pay a fee then a maximum of like 3 or 4 mil on a Robert Huth, out of favour but fine as back up

Add Gez Del for cheapish, ship off Howard and bring in Heaton and then spend a decentish fee on this number 10 type signing and I would be made up

8 million is too much for us to spend on a 3rd choice centre back

Stones and Jags are both boss, Galloway is gonna come through and be first team ready in like 2/3 years. We need a short term solid fix

...........You're right about the short term fix and that could be Dann if the price was lower. On the debit side he's a kopite so really he should do a Lambert. Not really bothered either way but 8m is way too much.

In an ideal world of course. But say we've got 15million to spend and we need a winger a playmaker and a centre back

I'm not happy for us to blow 8million on a centre back. The majority of that should be going on the playmaker

Stones and Jags are 2 of the best in the league

Galloway and Browning are very promising

We need a short term back up fix that can do a job imo

Ideally we should be looking at a young CB, akin to Stones, but maybe not with the amount of starts under his belt. Someone who will be happy to play a bit part next season, with the idea of slowly replacing Jags. Tricky, as if they are young and good, they will obviously be wanting to start every game, but the pay off will be better in the long run.

We need a strong, pl proven centre half who will be told that the best two of three play. Simple

Imagine jagielka gets injured and we have Chelsea with a back line of stones and Galloway?

Dann is a year younger than Distin was when he arrived. Distin cost 6 million and prices have since been inflated. Was Distin a bad buy by Moyes?

And I'm in the camp that wants experience. We have one experienced centre back and two really promising, but still inexperienced ones.

Bingo! we need a proven player back there to fill in when the inevitable injuries occur to Jags/stones until Galloway, and supposedly Pennington, are ready to be brought in properly. We need someone who won't complain, and is all about the team performing well no matter how much they play.

Scott Dann doesn't offend me.

He's the current Palace player of the year, has years of PL experience, is at a good age for a CB and is a decent enough player to put pressure on Stones and Jags to keep up their form.

A top team needs three top centre backs, not two first choicers and a 19 year old in reserve.

8m, for a player of his experience and particularly as Palace don't need to sell, is about right in my opinion. The issue is that we don't necessarily have 8m to spunk on a defender, and that's probably why he's splitting opinion.

Have to agree we need more height and strength at the back against certain teams, we miss Fellaini in that respect due to his height at set pieces. Though I feel 8m is a bit steep, around about 5 and i'm in.

I fully agree.  A 32yr old CM who I genuinely don't know how they'd fit into our team isn't someone we should be chasing.  The Portugese links might actually just be the Portugese translation of the original Turkish link from the other day looking more into it.

According to the site he got 3 in the U21's, although they don't list all competitions so I would guess he's scored more.

I've seen a few highlights and the ones I saw were all good finishes.

I don't think there was many tap ins, or like headers or anything, he looked more a sort of pacey, one v one finisher like mirallas.

Was thinking about him the other day, Abdulyev or someone he was called, got no clue what happened to him.

Araz Abdullayev. Bought from Neftchi Baku, didn't get a work permit, was loaned back. Loaned to Greece where he struggled the following season (2011/12), then sold back to Neftchi. Transfermarkt (dodgy source, I know, but it's all I can find right now) says we made a small profit, likely enough to cover wages.

Still playing for Neftchi Baku, only 23. Winger/midfielder for them with a 1 in 6 scoring record, and has 14 caps for the full national side. Good player for his league, but the fact that he's still playing there says something either about his (a) ability, (b) adaptability, or (c) ambition.

I don't think it's about not having it it's about not wanting to spend it when he has twelve months left. Like Jim said he won't be third choice, he will be one of three players rotating. Add to that inevitable injuries and the fact you can't place too much of a burden on Stones at this young an age and it makes more and more sense.

Can't say I've seen much of him but if he's good enough to push for a start then it's fine by me.

We need more that just adequate cover in positions, we need players that will push the first choice players for a start and will cause the minimum disruption if they are called upon due to injuries or a drop in form of someone. We've seen all too often over the years how lack of competition can leave players in comfort zones knowing their place is safe.

You do remember Alcaraz and Distin last year?

That's what happens when you dont have good cover at CB. Centre half is a main priority. If Jags or Stones get injured then were left to Browning and Galloway.

Maybe we need to re-adjust our expectations of what a bargain is and isn't with the influx of TV money. You'll have exceptions like Del for 3-6m, and free transfers, but is 8m that much really for a proven, ready-to-go, English Prem defender when you have Troy Deeney quoted at 20m, Sterling at 50m etc etc?

I haven't seen enough of him to say how good he is or isn't, to be fair. I don't like that he's a kopite, but that's probably stupid to focus on if the rest of the deal and what he offers is going to help us.

As I've said before My main problem is the fee. We haven't got that type of money for a 3rd choice centre back imo

The Jags/Stones Partnership will be good for another 2/3 years by which time Brendan Galloway will surely be ready to form a partnership with Stones

I'd rather us spend much less on a back up centre back and find the man to link the play and be our Zidane!

The 8-15mil price range quoted on Dann is better spent there imo

I'm not worried at all. Get them in early, and get them going in the pre-season.

Still wouldn't mind one more signing after this though. I still believe we will sign one more player. Won't be a massive signing though, but either a Keeper, Striker, an actual #10, or another winger... We also still have the loan market to work.

The "one for each line" comment would surprise me if it included cleverly and deulofeu to be honest. I reckon one on a free and one was a surprise package where the "icing" as it where.

Of course, past experience tells me that the chances are we will end up with icing and no cake ala Drenthe/straq (sorry todd).

Dann, cleverly, deulofeu and an actual striker would be my bet for our business. With Lennon potentially forcing a last minute move.

Oh, and the England stuff? The English defence does have a large everton feel to it. Hodgson probably curses Colemans grandparents for not cheating their kids into a purple passport as well.

Two days ago we would consider 15m for Stones. Now Dann is valued at 15m..... ha ha ha

According to the mirror we wont pay 15m for dann, id fucking hope not as wel

Echo says season loan for Wilson from Man U, not sure in the point of that and Olympiakos for Mirallas, dont see the point in that either




You can get a high quality centre back, certainly a lot better than dann for 15m

Michu, I'm somewhat torn on. Certainly got the potential to be a good signing, but his attitude and injury record make him a risk. That said, at 4 million it's not a massive one. Would I have him over Kone? Yes. Would I rather we looked elsewhere, and for a younger player? Probably yeah. Wouldn't be disappointed by it though.

being Danish I Can absurde you that we didn't miss out on Kjr. To put it politte he is NOT a very good defender. Even Jags look like Messi when compared to Kjr under pressure. Vestergaard and Okore are younger and far more talented than Kjr. Unfortunatly we came in a year too late for Vestergaard

He's just not good though. He's a name, nothing more.

He's greedy, plays with his head down, with a lack of awareness of what's going on around him, and his actual impact on a match is negligible. He's got good technique but he's brainless.

The fact that Inter are trying to sell him in the same window in which they bought him speaks volumes.

Don't think they were making him a scapegoat more commenting on the key figure who has a lot of speculation around him. He had a poor game generally definitely looked really rusty in his decision making. Still some brilliant passes to get moves going the likes of which the midfield could only dream of.

I do find it funny though when Kane has an awful 3 games its poor service ignoring it when he makes terrible decisions and has numerous daft shots. It's last like there can't be any other reason he hasn't got 10 goals other than those around him rather than he might not be any more than a decent player!

The one yesterday when they are 2-0 down and going out of the tournament in desperate need of goal, they have a 3 on 2 with ings and lingard either side who he could play in on goal. Does neither, and takes a terrible shot from 25 yards. Was either really selfish or plain daft, I'm going with a bit of both as he didn't even shift the ball to create an angle for a shot or go past the man. I seem to be in the minority but still think be us someone playing on massive confidence no as the next couple of seasons go on his level will drop to just being ok.

If that happens despite the fact we won't have spent anything we will be in a decent position. Without spunking on a playmaker though we become heavily reliant on one of Gibson, Cleverley, Osman, Pienaar or Barkley stepping up. That scares me a little

If we don't get a playmaker unless Pienaar rolls back the years or Barkley has a breakthrough season we'll be in a similar position to this year, It's so important to the way we play that we can break other teams down and then starve them of possession and this year we were toothless and then when the other team got the ball they just let us have it and sat back.

Remember even if we run out of money to spend, we will still, as per usual, utilize the loan market.

We pretty much always have at Everton, for as long as I can remember, even from when Moyes first took over we have always dabbled with loans.

One more big cash signing and 2 loans I reckon.

This should cover what we need.

Everton make move for Nemanja Vidic

Everton have asked Inter Milan about the possibility of signing former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic, but the Serbian has turned down any approach according to SportMediaSet.

33 year old Defender Vidic left Old Trafford for Inter Milan last year following 8 fantastic years in Manchester but had a tough first season in Milan.

The report says: Everton have contacted Inter for a move for Vidic but the player does not like the destination and has declined the offer.

Sullivan saying it's a 'world class' signing and if he was 22 he'd be worth '30m or more'. If my auntie had a dick, she'd be my uncle. What sort of fucked up argument is that? He's 28, not 22. If he was 22 or world class, he wouldn't even consider signing for West Ham.

Bet they're trying to offload him within a season or two.

He probably wants some easy wedge and to live in London.

Everyone is. But first things first. A centre back. That is next on the list.

Then try to add a Play maker either through loaning or buying.

As I've said before. We can't just fill all our needs with one stroke in one transfer window. If people expect us to they are delusional. I believe Martinez will grab a good central defender, and a play maker then he'll be done.(Maybe some loans, and signings of young players, etc. after) If our Keeper situation is a right mess come January you'll see a move made. If it's fine then next summer we will see our new keeper.

If that happens despite the fact we won't have spent anything we will be in a decent position. Without spunking on a playmaker though we become heavily reliant on one of Gibson, Cleverley, Osman, Pienaar or Barkley stepping up. That scares me a little

If there is anything in this at all, then I could see Mirallas going to Spurs if Lennon and cash for Januzaj come our way.

I would love there to be a sea change where we invested some of that and put other monies aside for stadium redevelopment and slowly slowly built up the club up bit by bit with no 'investment'.

Mertens is basically just Mirallas isn't he, could be a like for like replacement should he leave, would be happy with Shaqiri but never been a fan of Italians in the Prem.

Normally i take paper rumours with a pinch of salt but i see this Coleman rumour as genuine interest, i'd be very interested to see what the stance of our club is when/if the bids as large as some quoted come in, 

60k to 25m is immense profit but we would lose the best attacking right back in the country, if you're not generating money from elsewhere in the club then it's the playing staff at buy low sell high to build the squad

I would say Mertens was more like Pienaar but scores more ! I wished he would have joined us from PSV, he has improved at Napoli, at PSV his biggest critisism was he didn't track back. Since being at Napoli he started to put more effort in, id be happy if he joined us.

I could understand the temptation if he is restricted with money to cash in for something like 25m and to have a replacement lined up at a 1/3 of the sum, not a deal i want to see happen but if you work under a tight budget there's the thinking of one loss could be 3 gains to a manager

I like Seamus being at Everton. All the nonsense linking him to other clubs is media, if it's right? personally I think we've lost a great player. Surely he's a part of this good looking youth policy? I can see us looking good soon. "If?" Roberto's not too inexperienced

We will be far weaker without Seamus.

A beast going forward when on form, probably our best defender (controversial I know), good pace, always tries hard, and a top lad to boot.

Would be absolutely gutted to lose him, especially to those arseholes.

Rarely had a sensible, unbiased, knowledgable, non-arrogant conversation about football with a United supporter; nearly as bad as Kopites.

Fellaini for 27.5m being an example and not caving in on 18m for Baines being good examples recently. It helps not being in a disastrous position firstly, even more so if the player isnt begging to leave and I cant imagine Coleman would or Stones at this point.

in the 90's when all the town planners around the country were given loads of money to do their towns up, everyone did.  In Stoke, they had a meeting and decided they didn't know where to start so bought every single teenage mum in the town a babygrow for their kids.  They only got half way through them.  Manchester built a tram network with the same money.

Maybe i'm reading this wrong here, but it makes me wonder whether our transfer budget, or who we sign next depends on who we sell this Summer. Hope I am wrong like because in this day and age of incredible tv money, surely that can not be right.

Its basically a copy and paste from the Daily Fail story

Media have had it in for us for years. They all wanted us to go down in 98, plus we upset their applecarts by finishing 4th in 05. They don't like us having good players so put in bullshit stories of players being unsettled (McCarthy) or convincing the public that transfers are nailed on (Baines to United)

Only way to put to bed the McCarthy rumours for a while is to give him the contract that's been the talking point, he's a safe 7/10 every week and someone who makes the midfield work with the energy and effort, captain material for me

He has a track record of, well, not playing because of injuries. We really owe nothing to him as Everton have been the ones that have stood by him while he doesn't play for 2 years now. There's no question clauses can be put into contracts regarding how many games the player plays. Obviously his would be more along the lines of how many games he was healthy to play.

I'd think he'd be crazy not to sign that contract. He's earned a damn good living from this sport while not even playing for the last couple of years.

Gibson has at least a year on his current deal letting that run down works in our favour, he doesn't stay fit we can let him go if by miracle he gets a leg transplant offer him a new deal, it feels like the Joe Parkinson situation, desperate for him to be fit but breakdowns over and over again and its the hope that's the problem, we need to accept he's always been fucked and always will so move on as its not like we're short in central midfield

Plus every year or so, Spurs like to do a wee bit of a squad overhaul, changing central midfielders seems to be the 'in' thing for them at the moment given that in the last few years they got rid of Palacios, Huddlestone, Sandro, Paulinho and they also tried to get rid of Capoue during the last transfer window. The moment McCarthy was to join Spurs his position would be very precarious and he would probably be gone in 2 years time to make way for another slightly promising Brazilian midfielder.

Isn't that normal practice? If a player gets sold before the end of his contract then unless he agrees otherwise he gets paid the rest of his wages as it's the club who's making the choice to sell him.

That's why clubs wait for players to put transfer requests in, because then they don't have to payout the rest of the players contract.

We cant afford to lose a player like McCarthy, he's probably the first player named on the team sheet and gives everything on the pitch everytime he plays, yes he's not a flare player and needs to score more but he does the ugly stuff better than anyone in the Premier League, he's still young and learning so we should be building our midfield around him.

We're keeping McCarthy, chill. He's Roberto's beloved.

Let's be honest, a lot of the time none of us has a fucking clue what's going on with contract discussions and we're introducing narratives that aren't even there. Look at Garbutt. Most of us were resigned to losing him, talking about which club he was joining, and hoping it wasn't the RS and the whole thing was completely off the mark. Talks had been ongoing for a while, as I'm sure they are with McCarthy.

As I said, Roberto bums McCarthy and he's going nowhere imo.

We're keeping McCarthy, chill. He's Roberto's beloved.

Let's be honest, a lot of the time none of us has a fucking clue what's going on with contract discussions and we're introducing narratives that aren't even there. Look at Garbutt. Most of us were resigned to losing him, talking about which club he was joining, and hoping it wasn't the RS and the whole thing was completely off the mark. Talks had been ongoing for a while, as I'm sure they are with McCarthy.

As I said, Roberto bums McCarthy and he's going nowhere imo.



Shit, do you reckon I can ask Sky bet for my fiver back then, fiver bet that's hes off to Spurs at 10/1 ;)

Serious Ram?.. we paid 13m for him relatively unknown, hes blossomed, there is more TV money now and you'd be happy with 20m?
You cannot get much for that now, when the likes of Austin is 15+ and Shaun Wright Phillips the second is 40m +

I'd be gutted to lose McCarthy myself.

nobody is worth that.... however, thats the market we are in, i was trying to say about values if you read it all.
Blossomed was a term I was using to say improved since his Wigan days.
The trouble I was trying to point out was replacing him with that kind of money.
He is never going to beat 5 men and stick it in the top bin, but I defy you to find someone who puts so much effort and hard work in on the pitch (apart from what Pienaar used to do). He is excellent at what he does.

I really don't agree with that at all. You couldn't replace McCarthy for 20 mil+? Not having that. Who said he has to beat 5 men? He has to work hard because positionally he's not as good as the best. With the ball, he's been very average. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to sell him, and I do like him, but I don't agree with that argument.

Regarding all teams needing a player like him - they don't. Most of the top sides have more specialist players who have a particular standout technical strength. City - Fernando/Fernandinho, Toure Chelsea - Matic, Fabregas Arsenal - Ramsey, Coquelin etc. That's just in England as well. If my criteria was beating 5 men and scoring a worldie, I certainly wouldn't bring a player like Matic into the equation, but he's a far superior defensive midfielder. It all depends on what we want. If it's Barry and McCarthy then McCarthy needs to offer more with the ball. I don't think he's intelligent enough (yet) to sit in front of the back 4 himself , so that's why we still need Barry...regardless of that dip in form last year. Besic has shown glimpses of being a good footballer, but he's also shown that he can't be trusted to do that job either.

I really hope we keep him, but he's not as irreplaceable as people are making out.

Back on topic - Wijnaldum and Ospina would be great. Can't see us paying 15 mil for Wijnaldum though, especially with Tom Clev now on board. Then again, if Martinez does see Barkley as a deeper centre mid, then maybe it makes sense. Lot of money to shell out when we all know we need centre halves.

I think it will have to be honestly, seeing a lot of teams worse than us spending good amounts of money on very good players they wouldn't have been able to get in the past so surely we must be able to find some money for a couple of potential starters.

I'm still wondering what the heck Martinez meant when he said they have worked hard all winter to identify targets. Did they really spend that time figuring out they want Cleverley and Deulofeu and now they are wondering who the rest could be? I mean, everyone and his dog knew those two would be targets if available. Yet we still lack the two most important signings and pre-season has already begun.

A player is still identified even if they don't move for them straight away, for example Martinez might have information that United will sell Jonny Evans when they sign Sergio Ramos, if Evans was his key target then he's obviously going to wait and see what goes down before moving onto plan B.

It's become a pattern of both windows that more and more clubs leave their business until late in the window, people shouldn't be concerned that there isn't much activity with 6 weeks still to go. It's not like everyone else is bringing in lots of new players, apart from Liverpool obviously but they rebuild every window so they don't count. Although I do seem to remember someone having a minor meltdown in June as we hadn't signed anyone yet so nothing should come as a surprise?

No we weren't, you have to think that for that amount he didn't exactly have high level clubs queueing up for him.

People need to not look at players like this as if we are missing out at this point. We don't really know who Martinez will bring in yet or who will leave, we have got two decent targets in already and we will use Singapore to assess where the squad is at. There will be loads of incomings and outgoings near the end of the window and we will make our move then when clubs start to get edgy and that's wise strategy when you have limited funds.

Its 10 million that they will never see again! The QPR strategy! he will be 30 in January.
He left Newcastle to go and sit on a bench for 2 seasons in France.
if we are signing players it will more than likely be younger players who still need to improve which is where we could potentially make money if they were to be sold. Older players in the latter stage of their careers will become targets if there is very little outlay or the chance to take them on loan

Almost every PL team has the money to sign good players now so these types of things will happen. If West Ham, Palace, and whoever else choose to spend their money on players with 1-2 prime years left, let them; it's a strategy that keeps them on the treadmill of mid-table (with maybe Europa League qualification if everything breaks right).

We should all be concerned about the crap performances of last season but expensive 28-30 year olds aren't the answer. We have a young core to rival any team in the league (Stones, Barkley, Lukaku, Deulofeu) and an academy setup that seems to have a plan for turning youngsters into first teamers. Roberto, Kenwright, and co. are right to be careful with new signings.

If you're still frustrated after that, look at it this way: Roberto seems to have learned from pissing away 6m on 29 year old Arouna Kone.

Gold and Sullivan are desperate to stay in the Premier League and will throw money at anyone they think might prevent them playing at the Olympic Stadium in front of 20,000 people. If they've offered him daft wages to go there, who cares what we offered him. Just another player that most people won't have heard of let alone see but are desperate to be outraged that we got "outbid" by some else. I don't know much about him but I'm guessing a 27 year old with only 10 caps for Italy isn't exactly going to be a huge miss for us?

Sergio Roberto would have to be guaranteed playing time to come to us unless he'd just stay at Barcelona and play about 10 games and warm the bench, unless one of the above is leaving yet there's still whispers about McCarthy and his contract

Although it could be said that Barry and Osman could/will play less games, Besic and Barkley need to prove they deserve a 1st team place, Gibson suffers a lot of injuries and Ledson could be sent out on loan which would leave McCarthy and Cleverley as definites for the 1st team

Say what you want about West Ham, they will finish smack bang wallop mid table and we will finish above them as we always do. We will also absolutely annihilate them at GP and at Upton park or the Boleyn ground or whatever they call their shitty patch these days.

Not much gas left in Barry, Osman or Gibsons tank but they can be useful in the cup campaigns. Midfield general needed to capture the league - preferably on the cheap. And Barkleys gonna have a season so good you'll all be blind from the five knuckle shuffling.

Sergio Roberto would have to be guaranteed playing time to come to us unless he'd just stay at Barcelona and play about 10 games and warm the bench, unless one of the above is leaving yet there's still whispers about McCarthy and his contract

Although it could be said that Barry and Osman could/will play less games, Besic and Barkley need to prove they deserve a 1st team place, Gibson suffers a lot of injuries and Ledson could be sent out on loan which would leave McCarthy and Cleverley as definites for the 1st team

                                Perhaps McCarthy is on his way out

Maybe it's been mentioned on here before (I can't be arsed checking), but we should try to take Arda Turan on loan from Barca til January. He can't play there, and it'll keep him fit and firing for them. Plus, he's fucking brilliant. Might be a good stop gap for the No. 10 posish (yes, posish) for now.

Not having a go at you like, but not much substance there other than what we already know. It seems to be more saying 'don't expect anything else before the first game, because it might be later in the window, towards the end of August'.

We're clearly in for a defender and are willing to spend a bit, judging by the Ogbonna comments, and the Dann situation.

I think we'll buy a CB for a decent outlay, and loan a creative player to compete with Barkley for the No. 10.

Post by: GLewis on July 14, 2015, 01:40:12 PM
Yeah a decent CB has had stronger links.

I think the creative player is easier to leave later if they're not likely to be a guaranteed starter as there's bound to be some less reliable but still talented players that coaches don't like and therefore will become available as the window develops.

I don't want to be panicking about the CB situation though so I'd hope that's sorted out sooner rather than later.

Hope that's not true mate, that for me would be a defeatist attitude from Martinez, you must aim to improve every season, because if you don't you don't stand still. you fall behind. That saying you have to have the financial backing to succeed, in this cash rich premier league, most other teams seem to have it, why cant we ? Now I said towards the end of last season, when quite a few on here were calling for Roberto's head, that I would be prepared to wait through the pre-season to see if we look better, fitter and more organised than last year.
I also said I would wait to see the calibre of signings Roberto brought in before I judge, now we deffo need an experienced centre back to challenge Jags / Stones and the number 10 Roberto promised us at the very least. I personally would add a goalkeeper to that small list.
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail, injuries and lack of preparation failed us last year, lets not let it happen again this year.

We do have to remember though that in the past we only used to break even through selling players.

So even with an increase in TV money we're not going to be making huge profits etc.

Therefore we're not just going to be able to add player after player without some leaving.

Apart from at CB we've got a senior replacement for every position.

It's unlikely that we're going to go far in both cup competitions so the number of games some will play will be quite low.

And injured or not they still have to be paid.

It's not beyond possibility that we're maxed out in terms of "star player" wages.

Of course there is also the point that the first xi should, if performing to their potential, be very competitive this season.

How much would we have to pay to be better than them?

Obviously we'd want top quality replacement should they not be available/performing but then that goes back to the budget issue.

I'm sure FFP placed restrictions on the increases in overall wages year on year.

He is clearly looking for a centre back which is the right thing to do, looked at dann, ogbonna and Evans so far Vidic linked as well. The main 3 there are all 27-28 so he seems to want someone of that age for more long term as jagielka gets older but not so young that they are inexperienced which is probably the right idea just finding that player.

We still have a really good squad and if we start the season with Howard, Coleman, stones, jags, Baines if fit, McCarthy, Barry, Barkley, mirallas/deulo Lukaku pienaar/deulo then that's a really really good team.

A backup centre back is definitely important as while Galloway looks a really good prospect it would be a lot to expect him and stones to play together say. I wouldn't be surprised to see mcgeady leave as the window goes on and then get lennon in later on.

But the basis for the team is there just a couple of more additions given our expected budgets so he probably thinks no rush in getting the wrong player now for the sake of getting them in.

It will be a disaster if we go with what we've got, any injury to our center backs and we're essentially screwed.

But we've obviously bid for Ogbonna given his comments when he joined west ham, there was too much speculation with Dann to not be confirmed interest and given his comments when he signed his deal about interest from others it is likely that was us. Then even Vidic's agent said there was interest but joining Everton didnt interest him.

So we have looked at people and not got them yet which looks to me like getting a 3rd centre half is his next priority especially if Ogbonna was 9m, the Dann bid was 8m then he is putting what is likely a fair chunk of our budget in that position. We werent successful with either of those so I'd imagine he is now looking at who else in the list he would like is available.

I personally wouldnt be surprised if we pushed for Jonny Evans just depends on his injury record, what United want and if he would be happy likely being 3rd choice centre back with a battle to get in the starting line up.

At his age he could well have to go out on loan to do that. Asides we have about 5 players missing the Asia tour McGeady, Baines, Oviedo, Besic and Gibson we have let 3 players go Distin, Alcaraz and Lennon. And have only brought two first teamers. Not panicking like but we do need imo 3 players in.

None of those are creative midfielders apart from Osman. The rest are wingers apart from Barkley who's passing is suspect to say the least and at a push Pienaar but he's always on the left. It was no coincidence that we started playing better last season when Osman came back from injury. Mark my words unless we either get a new, decent number 10 in or change to 4-3-3 we will be just as bad as last season as no one will create much for Lukaku.

I understand the need for another CB but we already have our 2 first choice ones so whilst i agree we need another body in there (i think either Browning or Galloway can do the 4th choice job) i think we need to prioritise a number 10. Why? Because the only one we have to create in that area is Osman and goals win games. I would go for a young or loan CB and go big with the number 10. It was glaringly obvious that's what we needed last season

I think a 4-3-3 could be good, especially if we were to sign Sergi Roberto. The only concerns I have are depth at the back, and goals from the forward players. Aside from Lukaku, we don't have anyone who will play and score regularly...unless we tie Mirallas down. If that happens and he gets back to being more of a regular it will help, but we're still lacking in that department. McGeady won't offer it, none of our centre mids are goalscorers (hopefully Ross will chip in with a few more), and Pienaar isn't a goalscorer either.

I was disappointed to miss out on Payet, though he would have been a very good addition.

I don't agree, that it will be such a bad thing if we don't make any major signings. Last season we signed players who had been on loan. So we only really added one player to the squad.  This season we have signed two players, with a view to improve us. Only really lost two defenders who were no longer first choice.  We have a few young lads looking like they are ready.  He said he's going to buy more just not big signings. Although I really think Mccathy will go now. So maybe we 'll have to spend

Agreed.

We need a proven CB that we can all trust when thrown out there.

After that, work the loan market for a young striker, and/or creative mid fielder.

Galloway or Browning need to be that 4th choice at CB. Barry can also cover as the 4th 5th choice. Same with Hibbert.

I think that's the problem with trying to get a 3rd choice CB, Dann and Ogbonna have both obviously looked at our current CB's and seen the club captain and best young defender in Europe in those positions and thought 'when would I get a game'. It might be a harder position to fill than we think, if we are unable to get someone then I'd be happy with Browning and Galloway to be given that chance to push.

Definitely think we'll bring in an attacking midfielder.

All those worrying about Palace, West Ham and Stoke playing better than us because they've spent, we really, really, really underperformed last season

Our 1st XI of: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jags, Stones, Barry, McCarthy, Barkley, Deulofeu, Mirallas and Lukaku if that team are playing well, I can only think of improving the team with replacing Howard and maybe Barry, we won't play as bad as last season

No last season was awful,  but I think the mixture of the world cup, a poor preseason and the extra European games had a massive impact.  I also think, we couldn't freshen the squad due to spending all our money on Rom, Barry. Only Basic, coming in fresh.  This season we have done that. All I'm saying is you don't need to spend 30 million
 Also I don't think our squad is that bad. We just had a bad year

We seem to be trying to convince ourselves that it'll be ok without any/many other additions, for me none of the players we have can fill in well enough on the left of midfield when Pienaar (who's age seems to have caught up with him), is injured. We have no creative player in the side, apart form Osman another at 34 you cant expect for him to have 38 games in him. As has been pointed out we are desperate for a CB (Ron Vlaar?) not to be 3rd choice back up but someone who is good enough to put pressure on Jagielka & Stones, I don't want them going into the season thinking they're first on the team sheet cause the new guy isn't really up to being anything more than 3rd choice.

A new striker would be a bonus of course, Kone wont get us 15 goals but id rather the left midfield, defender & creative player first.

I know this is how we've been for as long as I can remember, but when others are spending money and we a club of our supposed size spends 4.2m (to date) its frustrating as hell.

I do like the  idea of Byram and Roberto but do you not think were desperate for players with a good level of experience already behind them, to me it seems like most of the squad is either too old or inexperienced with only a few of the first teamers between the ages of 24 and 29.

I think only Byram is a real youngster there, and he's at least been playing regularly for his club.
Roberto is the same age that McCarthy came to us and he hit the ground running.
I think those guys would really provide excitement, a lack of fear, and the same sort of optimism that Deulofeu's return has ignited.

Byram seems highly rated but more importantly highly valued if the fee is around the 8m quoted we are not in a position to pay that for a few reasons, he would be second choice, we gave Hibbert a longer deal than we should have and finally we have areas which are more pressing

Roberto i'm not claiming to know much about him but again it's filling in areas we have players and are well covered

Left Midfield Piennar, Osman, Cleverley and Henen can all play on the left and have done so regularly - we will manage for one more year till Pienaar and Osman hopefully hang up their boots and we look at younger options maybe the latter 2 challenging the position between them permanently

2 major areas are supply to Lukaku - Barkley was way off last season and Naismith with all the heart he puts in is more graft than brains which is ok but we want to be more than ok and Central Defence, with one injury it can throw us into problems straight away including being overplayed during the preseason might cause injury/fatigue and giving youngsters time or Barry covering only allows the lads some rest not help the team play a settled system that we will be using when the season starts

McCarthy to Man City rumours have started, this is a problem the club has brought on the themselves, noises have been made for 2 summers about his wage and a new contract has been sought by his agent, if we have allowed his head to be turned over wages he could be earning elsewhere whilst at the same time being undervalued with us then we have let ourselves down,

McCarthy should be the player who we build the next midfield round, Barry and Gibson are either unreliable or at an age we can't plan long term for and McCarthy is performing highly whilst still developing, losing him would be a major problem and then would make us heavily reliant on a 33 year old or a player we would be very lucky to get 10 games out of 10 games that are broken up in to patches of 2/3 at a time

McCarthy has watched Barkley be heavily rewarded for a season last summer and Cleverley join on a free transfer this summer both will likely eclipse him in wage

Don't be ridiculous. First off, RS are not short of money like we are. Secondly Sterling is an attacking player who scores and creates. McCarthy does neither. And the guys who do always cost more. And while McCarthy would never be more than a sub at City, Sterling at least has potential to be more. Plus he's four years younger.

McCarthy to Man City rumours have started, this is a problem the club has brought on the themselves, noises have been made for 2 summers about his wage and a new contract has been sought by his agent, if we have allowed his head to be turned over wages he could be earning elsewhere whilst at the same time being undervalued with us then we have let ourselves down,

So it's a rumour and you then go on as if it's a done deal.

He's only two years into his deal, we were right not to jump in after his first season and offer him an improved deal, it very rarely happens anyway. IF they are after him it's because they need to increase their home grown players so are starting to look at a better level of player than the squad fillers they wasted money on in recent seasons. Even if we had offered and he'd taken a new deal, there's nothing to stop a club like Man City coming in and buying him, that would happen whether it was 5 years or one year left on his deal.

check the name of the title of the thread bud if you don't want to discuss rumours might be best sitting this one out,

I'm not claiming anythings done i'm not sure which part reads that way to you but what i am claiming maybe some fact to is the reports that has been consistent over a 12 month or more period is his wage is an issue and needs resolving and he was promised an improved if he earned it,

you can't stop a players head being turned by someone else but you can have them satisfied with what you have given and feel some worth

Don't like that McCarthy is linked anywhere, but the story about his contract issues have gone on too long and by so many different places not to have some truth in them. Sort it out Everton he is a good young player we can not afford to lose. Only the club can put a stop t0 these rumours.

I think only Byram is a real youngster there, and he's at least been playing regularly for his club.
Roberto is the same age that McCarthy came to us and he hit the ground running.
I think those guys would really provide excitement, a lack of fear, and the same sort of optimism that Deulofeu's return has ignited.

While Roberto may be a similar age to Mccarthy he has only played about 50 games so far at the top level in his career whereas Mccarthy has had about 300 so while 23 he is still very inexperienced for starting first team games a bit like Osman was when he came into our team back in 2004.

Mccarthy hasn't improved since he came here, so doesn't deserve a new deal making him one of our highest earners.

Hasn't he still got 3 years left on his deal anyway? There's no rush and it's all agent talk anyway.

It's generally a thread for players coming in not out, bud.

The point was that although it's a rumour you're talking as if it's fact and the club have fucked up and his heads been turned, which is purely an assumption.

Post by: Sixx1402 on July 15, 2015, 07:56:42 PM
Byram seems highly rated but more importantly highly valued if the fee is around the 8m quoted we are not in a position to pay that for a few reasons, he would be second choice, we gave Hibbert a longer deal than we should have and finally we have areas which are more pressing

Roberto i'm not claiming to know much about him but again it's filling in areas we have players and are well covered

Left Midfield Piennar, Osman, Cleverley and Henen can all play on the left and have done so regularly - we will manage for one more year till Pienaar and Osman hopefully hang up their boots and we look at younger options maybe the latter 2 challenging the position between them permanently

2 major areas are supply to Lukaku - Barkley was way off last season and Naismith with all the heart he puts in is more graft than brains which is ok but we want to be more than ok and Central Defence, with one injury it can throw us into problems straight away including being overplayed during the preseason might cause injury/fatigue and giving youngsters time or Barry covering only allows the lads some rest not help the team play a settled system that we will be using when the season starts

Spot on. Couldn't have wrote that better myself. Just watched us against Stoke and we didn't really create anything for Lukaku until right at the end when they were wilting. Had we had a good number 10 behind him we'd have whipped them as he was making decent runs into channels but wasn't getting the balls through. Please take note Roberto, Lukaku thrives on through balls......THROUGH BALLS!! Get someone good to provide him and we'll win the league!!!!.........well probably not but you get the idea  :thumbsup:

McCarthy should be the player who we build the next midfield round, Barry and Gibson are either unreliable or at an age we can't plan long term for and McCarthy is performing highly whilst still developing, losing him would be a major problem and then would make us heavily reliant on a 33 year old or a player we would be very lucky to get 10 games out of 10 games that are broken up in to patches of 2/3 at a time

McCarthy has watched Barkley be heavily rewarded for a season last summer and Cleverley join on a free transfer this summer both will likely eclipse him in wage

You know what? I wouldn't be too bothered if we fleeced Shiteh to the tune of 30-40 million for him. Yes he's a very good player and effective at what he does but i personally think Besic can do that job after gaining a little bit more experience. They are quite similar types of players and we have CM's coming out of our ears. Will still have Barry there aswell along with Gibson and even maybe Cleverley? We need to strengthen elsewhere so if that money could provide it then i'd go for it. Ideally i'd like to keep him AND strengthen but i don't think we have the wonga to do it  :headbang:

Its not just a case of if he has improved though. First thing have to consider is what the others around him are earning. Currently Pienaar is on 65k, Barkley 60k, barry 60k and cleverley 55k. Are they double the importance to mccarthy to us? Not a chance. So its not unreasonable for him to want close to what these players are on.

Secondly you have to take into account what others would pay him and what it takes to make sure he remains happy. If spurs are interested they would definitely pay him 60k a week, if city are interested theyd probably pay him 120k a week. And as we saw with sterling liverpool offered him 100k a week too late in the day, he was on 30k a week there and if theyd offered it 6 months earlier hed have signed the fact they waited and city got in his agents ear sent the whole situation spiralling to the point of no return.

Mccarthy might not have improved enough to warrant double his wage. The fact the rest of the midfield is nearly double his wages, he is a crucial player to our team with a great attitude and only 24 with plenty of time to develop to me it would be ludicrous to keep him on 35k a week for the sake of him just having 3 years left on his deal so no point doing anything.

City would have still come in for him and double his wages even if he'd signed a deal at Liverpool.

Even if we had put McCarthy on 60K if City offered 120k we'd struggle keep hold of him without breaking our wage structure which would bring another whole set of problems.

It's very rare that a player on a five year deal gets offered an extension 12 months into it, so I don't think it was an issue last summer. And if it was his agent pushing for a new deal then McCarthy should fire him for negotiating such a pittance when signed in the first place. :)

Post by: 74Blue on July 16, 2015, 04:18:33 AM
Don't be ridiculous. First off, RS are not short of money like we are. Secondly Sterling is an attacking player who scores and creates. McCarthy dotime either. And the guys who do always cost more. And while McCarthy would never be more than a sub at City, Sterling at least has potential to be more. Plus he's four years younger.
1. We neither need to, nor want to sell McCarthy.
2. Unlike Sterling, James McCarthy has not made a big media circus for himself, claiming to be so desperately unhappy that he simply has to leave Everton.
3. A player is worth whatever the buying club is willing to pay for his services.
4. Is Scott Dann a 16m player? Like fuck he is, but Crystal Palace decided that they didn't particularly wish to sell, so slapped a big price on his head to ward off potential suitors. He's their player, so they can ask whatever they like. We are in a similar position with James McCarthy. He's our player, so the price is whatever Everton decide it is.
5. Sterling is absolute dogshite. He looked ok when he had Suarez dragging three defenders around him and Sturridge's pace keeping another defender occupied. It meant he always had acres of space to run into and loads of time to make decisions. Without Suarez and Sturridge around him last season, he managed to create the square root of fuck all.
6. If a fool with money to burn is chucking their money around, it's bad manners not to cream them for every fucking penny that you can squeeze out of them.

Cleverley on a free is a very astute signing, if you can't see how then that's your shit.

Evans at 6 mil to be our 3rd choice centre half? Don't think you can do much better than that tbh. It's that or take a risk on an old head, someone on the continent, or a young prospect. I know what I prefer.

Stones is a huge improvement on Distin.

Evans is certainly a massive improvement on alcaraz.



Stones needs someone like jags next to him though. I'd imagine stones and Evans to be just as ropey as the stones and Alcaraz partnership. We should really be looking for someone too challenge the first team or one of your 30+ experienced players

Evans is a good CB and a good utility defender. Of course there are better out there but none of them would be prepared to come to us as third choice CB. I think he knows he wont walk in as first or second choice and knows he wont get any better than us. Hes also defo not a fourth or fifth choice, which he would become if Man U sign Ramos or the Valencia guy. At 6 to 8 million he fits the bill for me

There mid prem team players which ok by me for squad players but they certainly arent going to help you crack the top four. To be honest this is my main issue, we need to be improving our first 11 and not just filling our squad out

8 million quid for a backup centre half? Surely we can get better and scour europe for better value and less than half that quoted price.

Players like Cleverley and potentially Evans are safe options that'll ensure Everton finish around 8-10th. Those aspirations of competing for 4th have sadly long but gone with these level of recruits.

Can someone lend me their crystal ball so I can do my lottery numbers. I think people were disappointed when Peter Reid signed too. And I remember some questioning the signing of a Spanish midfielder who had flopped at Rangers. I'm going to wait and see how things turn out on the pitch before declaring what position we are going to finish next season. I'm only a fan, I've never really played football to a level that I can talk about tactics etc and how a certain player will fit in but I'm willing to give every player who dons the royal blue a chance.

Have to say, I've never been a fan and was always optimistic when he was at CB when they came to Goodison. I remember Rodwell ghosting past him like he wasn't there for his goal a few seasons ago...and how often did Rodwell do that?

I'll support him if he comes as per usual, but if he is out of contract next year I think we'd do better by loaning another CB and bringing him in next year.

I'd have personally put a 4 mil price tag on him with a year left, if they start and 10 and we end up at 6 mil I'd be much happier with that as he still would be experienced cover...albeit I'd prefer someone with pace. 8 mil just seems a lot.

Part of me would be like 'okay' because a back up CB is clearly the next order of business and options seem to be limited.

Would rather ogbonna but it would have been a risk and its sailed, plus he's basically Juve's evans.

Would rather van dijk but it's a risk and no one seems to be knocking the door down for him so....maybe valued 10+?

Some of you still live in 2005 with your valuations, in a day and age where McCormack went for 12 million you think 8 million is outrageous for a CB who played for United until the age of 27 and is a decent player by all accounts, i'd much rather that than pay similar for Ogbonna or Dann.

I will be more than a bit pissed of if Distin proves he's still got it though. Both in terms of last season when Alcaraz played and this having spent 8m to replace him. I suspect he'll prove to be every bit as good as Evans still and that him not playing was solely a personality clash

There are plenty of rumours but the unfortunate thing is they are about players going OUT.
Stones, McCarthy & Mirallas all in today's press, chuck in Coleman & Barkley as usual.

I wouldn't be suprised if after yesterday's shambolic display there are a few agents under pressure this morning,
"I'm an ambitious under footballing celebrity, get me out of here"
Don't be shocked if Lukaku get linked with someone this week.

There are only 3 weeks to go to kick off, imagine if we lost two, three or four of the above between now and then, it would be a disaster. Roberto would be away on a trolley dash buying anything to make up the numbers in the last few days, and all the pre season prep work would be fucked.

Been linked with Ben Gibson Middlesborough's 22 yo central defender not sure how much but as the 3rd choice, U-21 international, looked ok the twice I've seen him play, I'm sure the papers will link him to be the replacement for Stones

I'm not too hopeful we're gonna bring anymore in to be honest.. maybe a loan near closing time but we're short of what we need. If Rom gets a knock, we're fucked as Kone ain't gonna get better for us.. there's no sign of it that i can see. I remain unsure of Martinez especially after the Arsenal game.. I haven't heard Wenger talking about the heat etc, but our Bobby has. Ten games then out if any sign of last seasons form.

I genuinely want to be wrong Si, but he just comes across at times a bit disingenuous with his excuses. Why go to Singapore if he was worried about the climate? Wenger didn't mention it. The red shite are touring Oz, which ain't the North pole either. The absence of transfers also suggests that's it or he'll argue it's late bringing in new players now to bed them in in time. We all know we need another CB and a striker and a 10. We have one main striker of worth, who could be off if rumours are to be believed, which i don't  but we can't play him every game... Chrimo at a stretch but only if not near bottom in first 10.. problem though, who then. Soz to be neg head but he does make me worried. You can't always see a good un, but you can a bad un.

But If we continue to play like we did against the Arse it's gonna be friggin hard to wait till Christmas... It almost hurts watching us play like that. It's like being really hung over. You have to moan and groan every few minutes, and take a big deep breath while holding your face in your hands.

Wenger wouldn't have complained because let's be honest they didn't have to do much in their game on Weds so had more energy yesterday

Lack of transfers doesn't worry me as yet because as we all know anything can change between now and August 8th. Remember his first summer when we had that run of 3/4 days straight of signings? Something like that can happen at any point

I'm in the in till Xmas camp but I also have a strong feeling that we will have a better start and be well in the top 6 hunt by then, fixtures be damned

I'm starting to wish we had bought more just because the season starts white soon now. But I would rather we get the right faces. My worry is that these late transfers that happen for any club are often the ones where players and agents are whoring themselves to everyone waiting for the best offers. Fair enough but I can't stand all the posturing and who blinks first shite.

I don't expect us to have bucket loads of money, however the fact we bid 8m for ogbonna and dann says he has that which he is looking to spend on a centre back at least. Just because not done more yet doesn't mean there won't be a couple more but wouldn't be expecting huge amounts coming in.

Disagree about the media. Yes they may make some stuff up for views however especially with social media spreading things quickly the media are generally very clued up on what is going on. They may embellish and add things to it but how often do transfers happen that people don't know about for a while?

We knew about deulo about a month before it happened because it was all over the media. The media have been saying for months Di Maria is off to psg while he and united have said he is going nowhere yet it's looking increasingly likely it will happen. The media have been saying for a month or so benteke is off to Liverpool and that is nearly done.

With social media, agents etc being as they are today the general media knows more than ever what is happening behind closed doors in my opinion. And that's before thinking about how clubs use local and national media as an arm to release stories they want getting out there.

I'm not saying we shouldn't mate, I'm saying people are needlessly panicking when there is plenty of time to find the right players.

Cabaye could well end up flopping now he's got a permanent contract at Palace

Delph will end up on loan somewhere by January if he doesn't break into the City side

Payet will score a few in the early weeks then do nothing as West Ham slip down the table

That's just 3 examples of players that could have been good fits for us but went to clubs that can either afford to throw money about or have to spend big to try and avoid the drop

blind faith is less of an attribute than due criticism of a non-achiever. he doesnt exactly have a glowing prem track-record, does he.

i dont see a massive problem with the players he has at his disposal. hes like a crap chef: the ingredients are ok, but he doesnt know how to blend them properly. ex players rarely reach the top in management, and hes - on the evidence so far - no exception.

who would we get to replace  him cuts no ice either. there has to better, somewhere. not my problem to root them out...and finances aren't always the issue.

nothing wrong with the club, or players, and nothing to get flustered about. it's just my opinion :)

So why bring up players that haven't even played as some sort of examples? And if those were examples of players who you wouldn't sign because they are risky who would you sign? Someone even cheaper so that if they flop it won't matter as much?

I said they would be players I'd have us sign in an ideal world. Delph for example would have been perfect for our midfield options. Payet would have been a good backup for Lukaku but not for the 10-15m West Ham paid.

The point I was making was that its better business sense to spend money wisely rather than for a quick hit of success

Its not anger, just my thoughts on it, every team tries to get their signings in early so they can settle into their new clubs way of playing etc. All around us teams are using their new found wealth to do this. We nearly always leave it late. Roberto told everyone he  and his staff had identified his targets. Its a fair question and I know we don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but where are they ? Who have we been inked to lately, where is the urgency. Personally I would like our main signings done and dusted before the season kicks off. And any last minute loans should be done then, but then that's just my opinion, no fuming or panicking, dare I say common sense

I think we need to stop stressing every time another team signs a player. They are allowed to do that. Even if it's a smaller team than us, signing a player that might be very good. They have scouts, they work behind the scenes, there is money sloshing around in the Prem, and there are numerous other factors like personal relationships (Pardew/Cabaye) or living situations or whatever.

We don't even need to be jealous. We must be one of the most successful operators in the transfer market in England, for the value we get, and the high prices we sell for. I'm glad we don't throw 90k a week at average players like West Ham. We bide our time, and we do the deals that are right for us.

We've got an excellent squad. Yes there are a couple of areas we need to strengthen, but it's stronger than last year's squad already and is the best squad we've had in the Prem era, and there's plenty of time to improve further.

Our main focus should be a) getting those couple of positions filled, and b) trying to achieve our potential this year, given the strength of our squad. We should not be stressing out every time Stoke bid for someone who's good on FM15 or every time a player joins West Ham cos he wants to live in London.

True, can remember the likes of Andy Cole, Eric Cantona and Dennis Bergkamp all signing during a season for different clubs, hell remember we signed Kevin Campbell really late in the 98/99 season and what a difference that made.

Mirallas seems an assured (too much) player, it could go the other way - If West Ham think they can buy him for 6 million, then Mirallas might feel undervalued from the get go.

Depends if he is serious about wanting CL football or just wants a pay-rise.

I know he's still got 2 years on his contract but pretty soon we're going to have to deciede to give him another contract or sell him.

This 'snake oil' business is pretty lame. Just saying. We've signed Cleverley and Deulofeu for a combined fee of 4m. We've continued getting good fees for Felli and Vic, and no doubt others in the future. It cheapens you to descend to those levels, and makes you look a bit of a knob.

For the people banging on about how we should get our transfers in as early as possible:

Do you honestly think Roberto and the board think differently? That they want to do transfers as late as possible or can't be arsed?

There is a lot of manoeuvring and competing, bids and counter-bids in the transfer markets, with agents trying to twist both sides for their personal pay-days. Of COURSE we want the transfers done as soon as possible - we've already done a couple very early.

Sometimes deadline day IS as soon as possible. Deal with it.

It takes two to tango and other teams might be reluctant to lose players at this time in the window, only for them to become available at the last minute.

It's a big game of chicken: each team is sitting on their hands waiting to see what becomes available. It's not just a case of waving your wallet about. The business will be done late and it always will be. It doesn't matter that much.

It's the same every year when in reality most of the big business is done towards the end of the windows. City have spent 70m on three young English players, Newcastle look to be doing some decent business, Liverpool are throwing the kitchen sink at things as usual as are United but they were always going to, Southampton are quietly going about their business. Other than that, a lot of clubs are replacing what they've lost but bringing in a few players doesn't mean their better, it needs to be quality over quantity.

It can't be a coincidence that everything in incomings has gone completely quiet.

What happens with Stones will affect our plans.

If he goes we have to readjust our targets.

Even if he stays there's a chance that we'll have to offer him a new deal.

His agent will be in our ear saying Chelsea offering 90k but only on 30k here; plus if we think he's worth 40m+ then he (the agent) will be saying we should pay him as such.

Even if we only went to 60k pw that's 1.5m gone out of our budget that we weren't expecting a week ago.

We were confirmed as bidding for Dann and Ogbonna, there was or is clearly some money there but it makes sense now to wait on what is happening with Stones. Like I said in another thread it's important to draw a line under this one way or another soon so we can plan for the season but until this is resolved (which will probably require Chelsea to say they are no longer interested or Stones saying he doesn't want to move) we can't do much.

How could it not? How can the player who is supposed to be able to make split-second decisions based on how teammates move and position themselves, automatically know all this without playing with them for a period of time? The #10 player is the pivot around who the entire team rotates so it's probably the hardest position to step into.

Some players come in and slot in as if played there for years.

Don't forget the transfer window is a new concept to football. It  wasn't that long ago, you could buy players up until April during the season. I can think of a couple of players who came in to immediate effect like that. Wayne Clarke and Kevin Campbell off the top of my head.

Make of it what you will, I was outside san carlo last night with a mate who spotted a group of men coming out. In the group was deulofeu and joel. I was almost positive that one of the others was Marc Munisea, the stoke centre back. The fourth person was some old bloke. Anyways, the reason that it's slightly odd seeeing them all in liverpool is the fact stoke actually played yesterday. Maybe there is more too it than just a friendly catch up? I have just googled(rather hard to find!) But muniesa and deulofeu share the same agent, gines carvajhal. i'm not saying the old bloke was him, but going off the pictures on google, he looks pretty similar.

Make of it what you will, I was outside san carlo last night with a mate who spotted a group of men coming out. In the group was deulofeu and joel. I was almost positive that one of the others was Marc Munisea, the stoke centre back. The fourth person was some old bloke. Anyways, the reason that it's slightly odd seeeing them all in liverpool is the fact stoke actually played yesterday. Maybe there is more too it than just a friendly catch up? I have just googled(rather hard to find!) But muniesa and deulofeu share the same agent, gines carvajhal. i'm not saying the old bloke was him, but going off the pictures on google, he looks pretty similar.
 


Only 5ft10 according to Wikipedia... I know Cannavaro was too but he was a bit special

I loved that one a good few years back where someone had been told that Wayne Rooney's (when he was a blue) agent talking to then Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri over lunch

Turned out it was Actually Rooney's agent having lunch with another client of his, the United States international Claudio Reyna!

I would imagine, if true, then he would not be a Stones replacement but to rotate with Jags and bring a bit of leadership experience to help Stones. If he was seen as a replacement for Stones then our CD partnership would be over sixty years old

We've probably known about the Stones interest for a while though, BD.

I'm not certain he will go in this window, but we would be crazy not to pursue a couple of targets for contingency.

Van Dijk and Williams would do nicely, and as long as we got north of 40m for Stones, and Martinez was allowed to spend the entire fee (along with the rest of the original transfer budget) then I wouldn't be too depressed.

Who am I kidding, I would still be gutted  :-\

You're right - Williams wouldn't come here to sit on the bench. Every season we use more than 2 centre-backs due to injury, bans, suspensions, resting, rotation and form.

If he's half the pro he appears to be, if he's coming - he's coming to fight for a starting place and that can only be a good thing.

Don't care if a certain city is better than an other city as they should be basing it on sporting reasons! If they think West ham have a better plan than us fair play to them but if it's I want to live in London then sod that, he does not have the correct mindset.

Agreed but London is more multicultural so it's more likely that a foreign player might have friends playing for other teams in the same city.

Players used to choose London clubs over us, especially in the 90's, not just because of the location, but because we weren't winning things, played dreadful football, were unfashionable, and were talked down to by the media.

Two seasons ago we were at least playing good football....

Now the only things we have to attract these players is that we do give youth a chance (say what you like about Martinez, but he does do that), and have a crop of exciting players.

However, if we continue in last seasons vein of poor pedestrian football, and lack of relative success, we will become completely unfashionable again, and the media will succeed in selling our 'sexy' players which will make it harder to attract players of a similar ilk again.

Snowball.

Andy Johnson didn't. he chose us over them. But the gap is closing.
AJ was already playing at a London club though, so the draw of the London lifestyle may not have been such a big deal to him as he already had a taste of it at Palace. He would also have been moving to a.local rival had he gone to West Ham, so that may also have been a bit of a factor. It's not the same as someone coming in from abroad, who probably doesn't even know where Merseyside is, never mind what it would be like to live up here. He may know little more than London is the capital city of England.

Tbh, who gives a fuck if a player wants to go to play under Bilic who is the same nationality (same as Deulofeu with Martinez arguably) over other teams for the six months that Bilic is in the job, before they get rid and get a new manager in, and a whole new set of 'exciting buys' on ridiculous wages.

I tend to think, if someone picks a club like West Ham over us, they either have their own reasons, or they've possibly not got the right personality type for our squad anyway.

Also, I'm glad we've dodged a bullet and West Ham have took it by appointing Bilic. Hopefully when it goes tits up, all the lids can stop saying 'let's get Bilic', just because he played for us for a bit, is in a band and seems like a bit of a buzz.

He's done next to nothing in club management, and arguably his relative success with the Croatian national team owed more to having a sickeningly good midfield.

In five years time, West Ham will be light years ahead of us, simply down to the new stadium and all the corporate opportunities that gives them.

As much as I love Goodison, we'll still be in a ramshackle old shed, either selling to buy or waiting for the TV money to land (providing football hasn't imploded by then)

Did Bilic actually play for us for a bit though? I thought he just stole a wage from us for a while, whilst being permanently "injured".

I would be very surprised if they are light years ahead of us cos of a new stadium, as the corporate opportunities are nothing compared to the money clubs are now getting through the TV money. In fact the more money we get through TV money means cash from ticket sales and corporate sponsorship is increasingly less significant.

Goodison might well be a shithole, but it's our very own shithole and a home that we have full use of 365 days a year.
Let's just say West Ham have a little cup run and get a few home draws. Where would they play their 26th home game? A cardboard box? They would be homeless after all.

City went to their new ground in 2003.

Shinawatra came in about 2006ish. It was under Sven that they had a mini spending spree which apart from Kompany was pretty unsuccessful.

It was that spending plus a possible jail sentence that lead to him selling to the current owners.

Much like Chelsea being in a terrible situation financially, without that, they wouldn't have been bought out.

It hasn't stopped any other teams trying to spend either? If we're all waiting for August what are West Ham and palace going to do qhen those cheques clear!

What we are waiting for is a very large number of variables
Including things like:
- club a breaking ground with their targets before allowing club b to discuss buying their player. Which in turn allows club c to speak to club b's player, all the way until it gets to us
- Agents or clubs thinking if they hold out till the last minute the buyers may start panicking and offering more money
- Players waiting till the end of the window to fully asses their full range of options before making a decision on what's best for them/their family
- A lot of 'we will go after this fella IF we dont get that fella and shifting negotiations accordingly
- Actual preparation for games and the season itself

The only thing not on the list is some fabled fucking cheque. We dont operate on a cash-in-hand basis.

No it hasn't. These mini meltdowns that people are having about transfers are daft, it happens every year. We've brought in two players who will improve the squad and probably the starting 11.

We've had the shouts today about losing out to Stoke and West Ham for players "as usual" and that Bournemouth are outspending us. Rarely are we ever in for a player (like properly in for, not paper talk) and we lose out to "lesser teams", I can't think of many off the top of my head. And if we have, how many have gone on to be a success at other teams? The Naughton's. N'Zogbia's and N'Zonzi's have hardly set the world on fire.

Most teams leave their major business until later on the window, it happens more and more during transfer windows, it's not just us "saving on wages" or waiting on Sky's cheque clearing. It's the way the market is going these days, some teams have done their business early (most not all have filled their squads rather than improved there first choice 11) but most will leave it until nearer the end, it's more the norm than the exception these days.

People need to calm down and accept that it's not just us that do our business that way but the majority of clubs leave it later, we've four and a bit weeks to go so lets see what happens before getting all stressed out in July.

One thing that has me worried, and I know it sound stupid because we are stacked in this position, but - centre mid.

Love McCarthy, and a lot of time for Barry, but with two sitting mid fielders last year we still struggled to keep the ball out the net.

Who steps in for Barry? No natural fit like for like in the squad I don't think, although a few 'tide-you-over' square pegs eg. Clev and Osman, maybe Besic.

I'd rather we took our time and got the right players in instead of the scatter gun approach that some clubs take and spend a fortune on average players. People moan that we don't have much money then moan that we aren't buying players, because we don't have much money means we can't just throw money at everyone and we need to get it right, contrary to popular belief that's not a bad thing.

We're not the pauper's we were two or three years ago, but we still need to watch what we do with the money and spend it right, I don't care if someone "outspends us as usual" as long as we spend it right, it's not how much you spend that matter it's what you spend it on.

No it hasn't. These mini meltdowns that people are having about transfers are daft, it happens every year. We've brought in two players who will improve the squad and probably the starting 11.

We've had the shouts today about losing out to Stoke and West Ham for players "as usual" and that Bournemouth are outspending us. Rarely are we ever in for a player (like properly in for, not paper talk) and we lose out to "lesser teams", I can't think of many off the top of my head. And if we have, how many have gone on to be a success at other teams? The Naughton's. N'Zogbia's and N'Zonzi's have hardly set the world on fire.

Most teams leave their major business until later on the window, it happens more and more during transfer windows, it's not just us "saving on wages" or waiting on Sky's cheque clearing. It's the way the market is going these days, some teams have done their business early (most not all have filled their squads rather than improved there first choice 11) but most will leave it until nearer the end, it's more the norm than the exception these days.

People need to calm down and accept that it's not just us that do our business that way but the majority of clubs leave it later, we've four and a bit weeks to go so lets see what happens before getting all stressed out in July.

Yup, it's often the shite sides and the newly promoted that get a thousand players in within the first month of the window.

Exactly and it rarely works. You can understand the newly promoted teams trying to spend a bit as they need to get solid players in to try and keep them up, that's all they care about, staying up but integrating 8-12 new players has rarely proved a successful formula.

It's not like we even need a massive change to our squad, CB (1-2) a creative player and a decent striker, none of those are cheap and it might be that we take a couple of windows to get there but we still have the core of a very good squad of players, we just need the manager to learn from last seasons mistakes.

Anyone else struggle to tell McCarthy apart from Cleverley when watching the match or am I just a bad racist?

People want the business done early, as the 2 previous pre seasons we've been slow and its cost us. And that's been admitted by management too.

Matinez's first pre season cost us? We finished with our highest ever points tally. Last season yes I agree.

Italian papers are linking us with Aleksandar Dragovic as a replacement for Stones at 12m. We were linked with him before he moved to Dynamo Kiev.
