Reading about getting Galloway back is the best news I've seen all week.

A CB playing left back was probably a bit too adventurous for Pulis.


A bit short sighted of us to send him there in retrospect. As soon as Brunt returned from injury, he was always coming back into the team.

That's Pulis' M.O.! Although, like you say, he does seem to prefer Brunt there and Brunt is a left winger by trade. Galloway was probably a bit too cultured (i.e. reluctant to launch aimless diagonals) to work out in that system.

Aside that nobody cares about: I once did a Pulis-ball FIFA save. The conditions were (1) that I wasn't allowed anyone less than 6'2" in the back four, (2) I had to have six natural CBs on the pitch at all times (typically the back four and CMs), and (3) at least one of my forwards had to be a big target man. I recommend the Pulis-ball challenge to anyone that's bored with FIFA. It's a lot of fun trying to find centre backs that can play any other role on the pitch effectively. Bonus points for starting with a poor lower-league team (I think I did mine with Gillingham).

There's not a lot of great signings moving around in January.  A couple of stop gap signings are most likely

Pulis has often played CBs at full back I think.

The problem is he's got no incentive / willingness to put up with Galloway's (or any young player's, particularly a loanee) mistakes.

Sure Pulis was at Gillingham when City came back from the dead in the 3rd tier play off.

Brilliant.

I can understand people feeling that we should bring in 3 first teamers but that is very diifcult in January when other teams may not have lined up their replacements.

Or as we're seeing with the potential roadblocks for Depay and Schneiderlin teams might simply not want to sell to us. They may be more willing in the summer but midseason it can be difficult.

I think if we get 1 first teamer and a couple of squad fillers we'll have done ok. Obviously I would like 3 first XI additions but that seems unlikely in Jan.

going of what we made in the last window and what we had to spend I am really hoping this is a window we do work in

sell McCarthy get this guy in Ignacio Camacho along with Morgan Schneiderlin no point waiting till the summer to look for barry,s replacement
 
that would give us 4 in there and Gibson for what he,s worth

net spend there around £20m and defence mid sorted for a lot of years

goal keeper if we don't get one this window then for me its all about the big lad at Southampton in the summer

and I cant beleave I am saying this but a left back even over a right back  Luke Shaw 2 reasons he is good and quick  2nd reason do not want him at Liverpool

again its £20m

that leaves £20 for attacking player before any going out and that's not going over the top with what has been said about what we can spend

Think it's a hairs breath away from somebody using Besic and Galloways returns as an excuse for not buying anyone in January.

You seem like you genuinely want moshiri and koeman to fail
I don't get it tbh

If they do and they well might, it reflects fuck all on martinez....in fact it kinda shows how far back he took us

The fact you've played the Martinez card reflects poorly on you I'd say. He's gone, consigned to Everton's history like many many others. It's time others got over that because I've not mentioned him in relation to Everton for a good few months I'd imagine.

There's also no way I want Moshiri or Koeman to fail because simply that means Everton have failed.

This thread is about the coming transfer window and how and what people think will happen let's keep it that way instead of constant looking backwards to score points.
