Has anyone else read that we rejected a 14m bid from West Ham?

Its a blag account.  Was an Evwrton account up until a couple of months ago.  Can't understand how a blue would decide to just one day decide to prwtend to be Jack Sullivan to wind up fellow blues?

So we'll need to sign another winger if he goes or we'll stick with Mirallas and Bolasie as the backups?

Why do you think Martina has been playing advanced in pre-season?

Hard to see how selling our best prospect for relative buttons is a positive to be honest. £20m buys you an average PL player these days. This lad has got all the tools to be very, very good and is still only 20 years old. Selling now would be madness from a football and business perspective.


He also may have the attitude to end up doing fuck all with his career.

Based on what exactly? As far as I'm concerned, he challenged himself in going to a very good team in one of the best leagues in the world and by all accounts did quite well. Nothing to suggest he hasn't got the attitude to make it as a very good player.

Based on reports very soon after he arrived surfacing that he wanted to go back to London, or that despite us being a team massively lacking pace and a creative spark he hardly figured under Koeman or Allardyce, then decided he didn't want to go on the loan the club had arranged and instead engineered a move of his choice with his agent, and then this summer has obviously made it clear to RBZ that he wants to go back despite both our new manager and director of football stating they want him to play an important role this season and he subsequently misses pre-season via 'injury'.

He looks like he's got the talent, but at the end of the day in the 18 months since he signed he scored on his debut, and then scored twice in a dead rubber european game.  At Premier League level he's *just* potential.  We'll have more than doubled our money on him as there's no way he's featured anywhere near enough for anything bar the initial fee to have been triggered.

If £20m was such a bargain price for this cut and dried future £50m superstar then how come theres not a single link to another Premier League team at that price?

Surely Arsenal, Spurs, and even West Ham would be all over it as they'll have likely scouted him extensively as his career has progressed?

Even the likes of Fulham and Palace you'd think would at least give it a sniff, or Leicester or Southampton who both have wide attacking positions to fill following summer departures?

However, Silva has insisted Ademola Lookman will not be leaving despite interest from RB Leipzig, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell last season. “He is our player and he stays,” the Everton manager said.

Does anyone else read that as him saying aside from Holgate who's injured we haven't got a decent CB?  Its true like, but for him to say it in an interview is surprising.

I read it as saying we only have three central defenders and one of them is injured.

Ah okay.

He doesn’t seem to think anything that’s not true. It appears he wanted to play elsewhere but as they actually wanted him he’s obviously right to think he could play there

Like to see him start today (assuming a lot of our new players aren’t quite ready)
Good that we’ve got plenty of options in his postitions now so there’s not pressure for him to carry our attack

I hope Walcott starts, tbh.  Then give Lookman the last 20.

Without reading too much into absolutely nothing whatsoever, what do you think this means

Chaffing.
