nah, it's still our only chance of getting top talent.
The hope is that we can turn around when they come to renegotiate and say "look, we're close to winning things here now, give us another year" and not look deluded.

Yes exactly, we’ll be trying to replicate the Spurs model, which by and large eventually results in a not selling passively to domestic ‘rivals’ policy (i.e. Lukaku: every man and his dog knew that Neymar and Coutinho would be sold for silly money, and we should have waited a few weeks to sell, instead of giving it up like a cheap Back Alley Sally)

Obviously it needs us to start getting some relative success on the pitch before we can implement it properly.

I think the days of a promising player coming to Everton for a year or two to then be sold onto United or City are over.

Brands and Silva will take us beyond that.

I think that's exactly why the Silva/Brands axis have been brought in. It's a given that if any young player outside the top 6 excels himself then he'll move up the ladder. We're a long way from being able to put up a persuasive argument for them to stay and pursue their aspirations with us, yet.
We should be aiming for more Stones and Lukaku type players/deals, at the very least it makes our squad planning self sustainable as well as enhancing the team while they're here.

Celtic are the archetypal 'Big fish in a small pond' but in truth the SPL is more like a puddle than a pond. Big fan base and stadium, but in truth they'd struggle to establish themselves in the upper echelons of the PL for at least a decade.

Yeah Celtic are limited in what they can ask / who will bother asking for him, as we said big teams can wait and give these lads from shite leagues a year at Everton or Southampton and then pick them up.

If Celtic sell to us with a sell on fee, they guarantee themselves maximum income, if they believe in the player like.

They basically did this with VVD and pocketed a tidy £8m smackers when he went to Liverpool which they then reinvested in Edouard from PSG who they only sold to Celtic because they are -£54m the wrong side of FFP. He's another great young prospect.

The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


They are mid-table Championship at best. No bigger than Leeds for example. Being a big fish in a very small pond. Everton would be a great stepping stone for him to be fair. IF we did well and ended up challenging for CL and maybe even getting CL then that may be at his eventual level. If we didnt challenge, yet he was playing above our current level, maybe like a Lukaku, then he would leave us for big money - win win tbh, but lets hope its the former rather than the latter if he was to join us.

There so much gossip and shit flying around, that god knows what movement we have made for him and others, but if the rumours are to be believd, and these 3 defenders in - excellent left back, excellent centre back and a young but fairly experienced ball playing defender that can cover both - thats a huge step forward for us with RFM gone and Williams fooked and seemingly on his way IF the moves happen. The problem being, this is Everton, so I'm just preparing myself for the disappointment on the yellow Sky Sports Breaking News Bar :D

True, but once they have got their foot in the door and established within that decade they’d be a real force and challenging at the top of the table every season, they are a huge club with a world wide fan base and shouldn’t be disregarded because the teams they play against are inferior, the same could be said for Rangers once they get their act together after their demotion in recent years

Could a mid table championship team beat Rosenborg away OR Wolfsburg or handle Man City? I still find people's perception of that league wierd. In fact if they played Everton they'd probably win. The last time they did play us was a pre season friendly I went to and they won comfortably.

Otherwise I agree with you,

Probably true but the reality is they’ll never be invited to play in England and so they are trapped paying mid table championship wages and playing in a dreadful league for eternity

The Premier League is dreadful.

How many teams can win it?

As a league its equal as much a cartel as the CL along with the SPL.

When we signed Seamas Coleman from Sligo Rovers, did you worry about the fact he had plied his trade in the League of Ireland?

No.
