We need a center midfielder and two center backs then a striker. Amazing how poor we were, without Lukaku and Barkley.

Yes i was exaggerating a tad but you can't just offload 2 players that nobody wants

So IF Lookman and by some miracle Bolasie and Mirallas go then we'd still have 3 as Vlasic has to play somewhere.

And there is no way all 3 of those are going
Even if we didn't offload them it's immaterial. Neither is good enough. We have loads of centre backs as well so I guess we don't need to sign any of those either?

Love a well qualified ITK.
Well, considering how little time he has gotten in pre-season while someone like Sandro has been totally inefficient and even Mirallas got way more minutes I'd say that's a safe assumption.

Wouldn’t mind that at all.

You’d assume you can get him cheap?

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Cash plus Williams for N’Diaye would be good

American Evertonian


I wanted to see him at Cardiff this season  :evil:

Let's tell Wolves he is Portuguese - they'd snap him up
Are we there yet?

Evertonian in NC


The last thing we need is a willing runner who doesn't score. We've got one of them in DCL who we can invest in to bring the clinical part of his game on.

Two if you count Sandro.

I reckon behind the scenes everything's pretty calm and under control, it's just fans that are panicking.

Two main targets identified and delivered with plenty of time left. Granted I'm sure we'd have liked to have had another half dozen of our expensive wasters out the door but there's only so much we can do on outgoings.

Steady on, there's a week left. We don't exactly complete deals quickly either.

Deals can be done quickly, especially when they need to be towards the end of the window.

Well no it's not immaterial as we need to off load players as our wage bill is way too high and Silva has said he wants a smaller squad so......

Ahh.....Boucheenie i presume

Does earlier transfer deadline apply to our outgoings too? If not, then we have plenty of time to ship the deadwood out.

do you think silva wants to train 30 odd footballers every week? I think not. Imagine trying to keep all those happy.
