Didn't watch much of him..is he one of the wider attacking front three types?

I think so. Direct, pacy, and fairly strong on the ball. Has some dribbling ability.

#WelcomeBolasie

Don't know if that is an entirely fair characterization, haha. At least I hope so. Think he has the potential to have much more of an end product than Bolasie. His dribbling seems to actually take him places -- unlike Bolasie's -- and he appears to be a bit more of an aerial threat. Not sure 50m is worth it though. Holy shit.

This is fucking terrible, buying average players and getting whacked to pay stupid fees. It's moronic.

Not sure he is just an average player. Seems to really have the potential to be good. If this were 25m-30m I would be all for it.

But agree re: stupid fees. Can't go paying 50m for a player that cost only 11m when they get only five goals and four assists over the course of an entire season. Madness. Especially when Lookman just got nearly the same end product in Germany over the course of like 1/4th of the total minutes.

....Unfortunately.

Would love him to stay and Bolasie leave. Lookman and Richarlison as our wingers with Walcott would be pretty cool. At least promising.

Yeah, a rotation of Lookman, Richarlison, Walcott, and Sig as the three behind the striker would be pretty great.

35 is still high end but that's the market now. Still rather him than many of tbosr we've been linked with and that is what matters

i don't know if 35m is quite the market. even with the crazy prices going around, only 25 to 30 is probably market for a guy that has only ever scored five goals in the Prem. we are likely overpaying by a bit -- serious pundits think so.

And how many goals has Lookman scored in the Prem ? Yet people bounding around valuations of 40 million.

Not anyone reasonable. And certainly not me, even though, if you go look at the Lookman thread, I am clearly one of his biggest, most vocal proponents on this forum. Personally, I would realistically value Lookman at between 20m-25m. (Though, I would not want Everton to sell him for less than 30mish, but that is b/c I am attached to him as a player and b/c i generally don't like selling good players if we can avoid it.)

That price would still be a little high, but assuming (as some have suggested) it includes comp for Silva, I would be fine with it.

Who are those numpties and why were they laughing at the "drive him there myself" joke that has been around for decades?

The ESPN FC crew is a bit embarrassing at times. I have watched them quite a bit, and they talk shit all the time. It is especially bad when they offer their opinions on clubs outside of the perennial powerhouses. Listening to them, I often think that they don't even watch any Prem matches without a top six team playing. Their takes re: Everton tend to be particularly bad.

Fucks sake though, it's not 50m. It's lazy punditry from a bunch of dicks.

Although I can see from the outside it being seen as a waste of money and a continuation of our silly spending from last year. But it's not 50m and 35m with addons for a 21 year old attacker with potential is probably at best 5-10m overpriced, which is probably the Watford/Silva tax.

In their defense, that video came out early yesterday when 50m was still being bandied about. But either way, yeah, this punditry is just lazy, not really considering any other factors at play than the purported 50m price. You would think that actual football pundits would consider discussing addons and such.

The only one there that I ever find myself adding with is Shaka Hislop

Yeah, I think Shaka is pretty good, though his disdain for Lukaku is a bit much at times, even now when I care much less about Lukaku.

Load of old has-been, back in my day merchants like Steve Nicol. Proper bellends the lot of them. Marcotti's the only decent one, and he always looks faintly embarrassed to be working with those people.

I spoke with Marcotti briefly while at a Barcelona v. Juventus preseason match last year. Was really friendly and talked to me for a few minutes about Neymar's possible transfer to PSG. Seemed like a genuinely nice guy.
