Title: STRIKER
Post by: Morta75 on October 20, 2017, 02:39:10 PM
We had a proven premier leauge striker in Lukaku and we need a new one ASAP.

Do we have the money for a new one, and if who should we try to sign?

Ship has sailed on getting in a good quality replacement, I think we will but we'll struggle now and have to pay way over the odds as everyone knows were desperate. The summertime was the ideal opportunity and we blew it, lots of positive Everton related press about our signings, how were going to be the team to push the top sides etc, now due to the boards failings were a laughing stock in a relegation battle, its hardly appealing.

Is the money there is another point for discussion, Moshiri has done nothing in the transfer market that Kenwright didnt do, so from that point of view were where we always have been, selling to invest.

Also who would want to come to us?
We are currently shite, we are not going to continue being shite, and we are not going to qualify for any European competitions next season, and by Jan all this will be obvious. So all we are going to be able to attract is some mercanry that no one else wants, or a has been, and we are going to have to bribe him with megabucks to come to us. Its bleak.

We ain't signing a big name striker till next summer now. Think the best option in January would be someone like Bakambu at villareal, Aboukabar at porto or even Rondon. It's not great but we aren't getting a Dzeko type in January

Iíd not be giving Koeman another penny if heís still here in January. The likelihood is itíd only go on signing some 30 something targetman thatís becoming extinct in the game and heíll be neither use nor ornament to the next fella in charge.

True. Most threads could probably be merged into one mega-thread at the minute in this whinge-athon.

I think the situation has changed.

We were somewhat hopeful of a Giroud or Dzeko when we were splashing the cash and making what were seemingly 'good buys' and appeared to be gathering up lots of youthful talent.

One look at us now and most players ould run the other way and any clubs that will speak to us are going to be doubling the original price and adding a long-distance phone number because they know we're fucking desperate.

Best bet now - some lifelong Evertonian who has burned all his bridges everywhere else but has shitloads of talent and is ready to turn his life around.

It's quite a small pool to fish in and even then - it may be empty.

We don't have a player to idolise, if someone asked me who my favourite current Everton player is, I don't know

Coleman, probably, or maybe Pickford, Davies and Vlasic could be

Attracting a good striker could partly rely on the credibility of our manager. Although his credibility is probably shot on here, most likely Koeman's  image/reputation is still big on the continent. Imagine having Unsworth as boss. His football image/reputation is probably unheard of outside an area stretching from  Bootle to Kirkby.
"Hello Senor Luigi, this is David Unsworth speaking, would you like to join my Everton revolution?"

Just over 2 months for Walsh and the board to bring in a new striker so I am hoping that there is some movement going on. From what I understand, the club was trying to bring back Onyekuru early from his loan deal so that suggests that at least they are currently looking at different possibilities to address this situation by the time January comes.

Lukaku refuses to sign his contract and informed the club heíd be off - in March. Come 31st August we didnít have a replacement. Donít hold your breath...or watch this space.

Giroud is completely off the table now. If he didnít want to come when the conversation was about Ďdo you want to help us break into the top 4?í Then doubt heíd want to come now the conversation is Ďdo you want to try to keep us up?í.

Fuck him his overly groomed beard and quiff and his bint and her tub of vasso.....
We need to persue other targets and Walsh and whoever the fuck is allegedly in charge of transfers needs to grow a set of brass ones and get the check book out and stop fucking around .

Knowing Everton, we'll probably sign a player in January who 'has experience before of operating in the Number 9 role' but is actually a natural 'number 10'.

Grioud was only ever intended as a stop gap, he was probably near the front of that queue. But we must have been looking at other more long term options before. I think we have enough quality and ability up front to get goals, but we just don't create much.

Lukaku was always a bit of an outlier in terms of goals and ability. He turned 23 and was our top PL goalscorer and European goalscorer before leaving and was one of hottest properties in world football, the lazy shit.

If we are going to get a striker, they need to be top quality and striker for years to come, and we have Onyekuru to add to options. Unfortunately there is lot more demand than supply at the top level.

Gamero is the sort of realistic signing we should be considering. We are never going to get the top notch fire crackers atm but he's the level below imo with something to prove.

Does anyone think we need a striker? Just looking back these past dozen or so games, I've noticed we don't get many chances in front of goal, and we've not scored too many either. We also seem to let more in than we score as well.

Just an observation. Not sure if anyone else has noticed.

How do you give a striker confidence?

We have Sandro on the sidelines doing fuck all except the odd soul-destroying cameo for 15 mins.

Can we not big him up in training and tell him that he's going to start and finish every game for the next 10 games because we believe in him?

The lad obviously has talent, but he's so lacking in confidence he just looks bereft to be on the pitch at times and tries too hard to make amends. If ever someone needed one to go in off his backside, it's this lad.

Genuine question though - can you give a striker confidence who isn't scoring goals?
Title: Re: STRIKER
Post by: Bluedylan on October 22, 2017, 02:02:42 PM
Sandro will go on to have a better career than Glen Murray. Messi and Ronaldo would struggle under our current setup.

Tammy Abraham could be a future option. Talented lad and a real handful for defenders. Doubt we could get him in Jan though, and Chelsea wouldn't be easy to do business with.

Post by: Toddacelli on October 22, 2017, 02:43:35 PM
I just think that all those horrific shouts we were getting linked with before the start of the season (and there were some belters) - whoever was the worst fucking one - that's who we'll get in January.

We will be looking back wistfully on links to Deeney/Rondon/Gray when we get a Chris Wood or Robson-Kanu.

Really thought he was a viable option in the summer. Even more so after we signed sig. Would have also taken gray due to lack of other options.
