Sigurdsson is the least of whats currently wrong with the side. He'll score 8-10 goals this season and 6 will be goal of the season contenders.


I think thatís almost the point. Heíll score 6 great goals out of nothing and do almost nowt else all season. Heís our 45m playmaker with little potential for improvement. This is the best version of sigurdsson weíll ever see

Heís not our biggest problem but when you consider what we invested in him.......

See by raising these valid points itíll be construed on here as having a dig at him when it really isnít.
Heís not one of our problems but on the other hand he is very much integral to the problem.

Heís actually 1 of our best players. Heís a player of great moments rather than controlling a game. Absolutely not what we needed. Absolutely too expensive.

Iíd sell him. Not because heís remotely close to being our biggest problem but because none of it fits together anyway and the list of who we want to sell really doesnít tally with other clubs lists of who theyíd want to buy (well unless the are lunatics)

If we had longer in the window to find someone who would be a better fit overall Iíd tend to agree with you. Even if we got £25m from a Leicester for example (I donít think we could sell him for any more than that) youíre hard pushed to find an alternative.

In time Iíd like think our new DoF could unearth one but at this late stage I think weíre going to have to go with him and try and make it work.

Yeah Iím talking more long term or ideal world than realistically. We are currently fighting fires all over the place. Least you know youíre gonna get a decent level of end product from sigurdsson. Just a crying shame we committed so much to a player that was never really going to be ideal in our team

Itís probably unfair but heís always gonna get judged against the massive fee and the fact that heís really not a playmaker

Absolute bare minimum we need a centre half, a left back and a playmaker. If we donít get at least that I think we are on for a season about as entertaining as last probably without so much luck when it comes to the results

I really dont get how fans want Kenny,DCL sold... they where both in the team for England that won the world cup!!  hell Davies would have been in that team too, if he didnt play 40 plus games the season before. They at the very minimum would be good squad players, instead of having to fork out millions more for squad players..
We also won the reserve league the season before last, with those same under23's you want us to sell.

shocking really. that people think these 22 and under players are not good enough already. (regardless of them achieving what they have already.. the core of that England team that won the world cup was Everton players, and as i pointed out.. we won the reserve league to with these same youngsters.)

Does the England thing really matter? U20s is a bit meaningless. The best under 20s play for the full side and the next best lot play for the u21s. Thereís probably quite a few in that squad who wonít make a decent impact at even championship level. Iím not saying thatís our players but I think winning it is a bit meaningless in terms of any likelihood of them going on to have really good careers

Not sure we should be writing DCL off when the only chances he's had in the first team is when we've been shocking. He was being asked to create something out of nothing 90% of the time and was doing that while running himself into the ground.

Could make that argument for most though. Maybe we shouldnít write any of them off cos theyíve all been shit together. The vast majority of them are part of the problem

Bye bye Kev. Loan deal sorted. Just needs to pass his medical

Absolutely the right decision though seems odd given heís 1 thatís been given minutes pre season and been better than most

Unfortunately heíll probably be back again next season. Him and Pennington were extremely off renewals. Sometimes players donít have great value we need to product with a new contract

Okay, letís for arguments sake say he bought a £100m striker instead of inheriting Kane. To do what heís done on £140m would be just as impressive.

Heís just a very, very good manager with a sensible chairman who knows how to handle the finances well.

Kane is closer to 200m in this market and heís a player who they couldnít otherwise attract. Beyond that though heís still done a fantastic job

We attracted one of the most prolific strikers in world football past few years, easily in Kaneís tier of top strikers. So that argument doesnít hold water. We paid £28m so in reality the difference wasnít that much. The main factor is we never had managers who could get the best out of him. Poch built high energy sides who got the ball back to front quickly, we didnít.

Lukaku isnít fit to lace Kaneís boots. Heís in the tier below him
