Everton still working for Doucouré - the player wants to join and come back in EPL. Talks on with Napoli for Allan (€35m price tag). James Rodriguez (reported by @TeleFootball) is a priority fo Ancelotti: Carlo would love to sign him, the club have contacted Real Madrid. 🔵 #EFC

That’s from Romano so we can assume this one is on.

You’d hope so, wouldn’t you.

Maybe why we played 433 against Blackpool.

His goal in the world cup was just so glorious and proper clever, especially the way he had a look at the keeper’s position as the ball was coming towards him, and then chested it forward to create room for it, and he would also really keep up our handsome quota, so fuck it, I’m sold.

Would love Sigurdsson to be out the door to facilitate it.

I mean, it’s all very unimaginative (last manager’s target, and two former players of our current manager) but James Rodriguez, blimey.

Does it at all concern you that his WC goal 6 years ago is the only thing anyone ever says about him? Don't get me wrong, he's a solid player when healthy, but that when healthy part looms large.

The way the reports state we’re “closing in”, rather than “exploring the possibility” etc. If we’ve made a bid (which it says we have), then he must want to come, or it wouldn’t have even got to this stage.

I'd fucking love this. It'd be up there with the disbelief of signing Carlo, Lukaku on a permanent and Samuel fuckin' Eto'o.

A few concerns like. He's just turned 29. But I tell myself that level of player and with the position he plays he can play at the same standard until 33/34. (à la David Silva)

I hope it comes off. It'll hopefully be the catalyst to us signing big names. Allan and James in one window? Yes please. Age is an issue but we do have to worry about the now as much as we do the future. Richarlison won't stick around if we continue to be mediocre. A couple of older experienced heads to drive us forward? Why not

Pretty much a slick, creative type who sits behind the forwards and links the midfield to them very well. Great passer. My concern is what shape his legs are in considering he's 29 and plays a position which will require him to get around the pitch a bit. I believe he can play wing as well, though I've only seen him play centrally (mostly at Bayern).

He does appear to be in crazy good physical shape though, so who knows?

Be a weird window if we sign 3 midfielders over the age of 27.

He has, but you're not wrong like. I can't think of even seeing him on a pitch since the first half of Bayern's 2018/19 season.

I just double-checked, and he actually didn't miss too much time due to injury in the 2 years he spent with them (16 league games over 2 seasons), and he was quite effective: 14 goals, 15 assists in 43 league games. Did alright in the CL and Pokal games he played too.

One thing the Marca article said was that he’s really keen to play again (unlike Bale, who keeps referencing his contract) which is making a transfer easier.

As with Allan, they want to sell him as he’s not in the club’s plans so we should have some leverage re the fee given only one year left.

Unless there’s some roundabout agreement where we pay a certain fee which goes towards them paying off some of his deal which means we have to pay him less salary wise :eh:
Title: Re: James Rodriguez
Post by: Waltzer on August 26, 2020, 01:51:38 PM
Would be nuts to pay much for him given our finances. Not cause he's bad, but his contract expires in June, by the time we get to ses him will be October so we might as well of just waited 2 months and get him to sign a pre contract agreement then negotiate an early release deal with Real

Guess with Allan and James, Ancelotti knows what he is getting, personalities. Huge void hopefully filled and although people talk about buying young gems, let’s keep our current young gems happy instead of watching them disappointed at their older peers in Sigurdsson and Walcott.

                        GK
RB         Holgate    Mina    Digne
     Gomes   Allan   Doucoure
    Rodriguez  DCL   Richarlison

Allan and Rodriguez would be the oldest players at 29 if you don’t include Coleman.  Not a bad looking side that.
Title: Re: James Rodriguez
Post by: ajax_andy on August 26, 2020, 02:30:40 PM
I'm a bit torn over this one, I've been fully onboard the Allen & Doucoure signings, but adding another older player seems like one too many to me.

If we do sign all three we need to be aiming to challenge top 4, or there's very little point in going down this route.

I'd rather we ditched Doucoure and signed someone younger and cheaper if we're also going for James, but I won't deny that having a shot at top 4 does seem quite exciting.

I would assume that this is all the work of Ancelotti, and begging some of his former players to come and help him out.

I am very glad that we are starting to see some activity now! Couldn't care less of Rodriguez's age. When you have the feet and experience he does, he can go on until 34/35 easily. Look at David Silva.

Some mad touches there, but did they all take place about five years ago? 😁

Love to see the highlights video where he tries to make an attack of Walcott and Iwobi work. Lots of shots of the ball flying over his head, or him racing to reach a heavy pass.

He's been linked for some time now, as was Silva and he's chosen Chelsea. I'd love him here but realistically would he choose us over other prem teams? I doubt it. I'm just waiting for the Echo to link Messi with a possible move here because we've got nice beaches close to the city. Then we'd melt down over paying for a 35 year old player... sorry to be negative but are weakness as fans is over expectation. This is another example of that imo, but I'd love to be wrong.

Elite level goal scorer though. Eclipsed each of his peers at the same age iirc.
If he stays in England the rest of his career as opposed to going to Inter he ends up being a top 5 all time premier league goal scorer almost surely.

Might even end up top 20 all time top flight in England.

Elite goal scorer no doubt. Other things he could do better certainly and maybe hasn't gone on to become as good as possible but still is a lock for 20 goals a year and probably closer to 25 or 30.

I get that It's good to have a mix of youth and experience but I just think it's a risk signing a midfield 3 of players soon to be on the wrong side of 30. Hope to be proven wrong but it's a risk.

Title: Re: James Rodriguez
Post by: Gary1878 on August 26, 2020, 09:04:17 PM
We need players for now. The future won't matter if we can't keep Richarlison etc happy by showing ambition and buying players that can raise our level.

I always remember at secondary school, there was this kid that moved down from Blackburn, and used to be apart of Liverpool FC academy. He had to quit the academy because of his dad's job. We were around 14 years old, and when he arrived, he was absolutely shit hot. I mean he would take on 5-6 players and then belt it in from 25 yards with a stinging shot.

However, over the months, his level dropped dramatically. He was used to playing with top young players 5-6 times a week. The reason I use this example, is because when a top player comes to Everton, it is very unlikely he will be at the same level as he was at Barca/Real Madrid etc. The reverse can be said for a top team buying an mediocre player. The top team can elevate average players and bring out the best in them. Everton can't do that, as the quality of players day in day out at training isn't quite there.

This is the real challenge of Ancelotti and co. It's not just matchdays that are important, it's all round training and the level at the club. Gomes training with Messi and Iniesta is not going to be the same Gomes training with Siggy and Davies, no matter how much we want him to be.

It’s all well and good saying we should be targeting younger players but the good ones tend tiger swept up by clubs much more attractive than us. The ideal scenario is these older players hit the ground running under our world class manager and in 2-3 years we’re in a position were we actually can build a team for the long term.

Pretty much a slick, creative type who sits behind the forwards and links the midfield to them very well. Great passer. My concern is what shape his legs are in considering he's 29 and plays a position which will require him to get around the pitch a bit. I believe he can play wing as well, though I've only seen him play centrally (mostly at Bayern).
I just double-checked, and he actually didn't miss too much time due to injury in the 2 years he spent with them (16 league games over 2 seasons), and he was quite effective: 14 goals, 15 assists in 43 league games. Did alright in the CL and Pokal games he played too.

I would say his presence very much opens up our formation versatility to easily play 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, 4-1-2-3, 4-2-1-3, and on.

I like Gomes and Mina but it would take a year light years ahead of anything either of them have produced to get an astronomical fee. Iwobi will also inevitably move on for a loss eventually even if he picks up.

You can’t rely on finding a Richarlison to cover up for mistakes. Not that I’m saying Mina and Gomes are mistakes, far from it but they’re hardly stars of the future either.

I really don't think he would work in a 4-4-2, I'm also sceptical about how useful he is wide in any formation due to his lack of pace.

If we buy a player like James Rodriguez I think you have to play him in his best position which is surely the advanced playmaker/number 10 in a 4-2-3-1 formation. It means the signings of Doucoure and Allan make much more sense as well, two busy midfielders to let James find space and do some serious damage.

If this is the route we are going I just hope we sign a quality right wide forward/inside forward too and we really will have a good balanced side (on paper) IMO. Light years ahead of what we have now.

I did clearly say that they were the right type of signings in terms of age, I didn't think that was a difficult concept to grasp but hey ho.

Post by: YankeeBlue214 on August 26, 2020, 10:16:39 PM
I really don't think he would work in a 4-4-2, I'm also sceptical about how useful he is wide in any formation due to his lack of pace.

If we buy a player like James Rodriguez I think you have to play him in his best position which is surely the advanced playmaker/number 10 in a 4-2-3-1 formation. It means the signings of Doucoure and Allan make much more sense as well, two busy midfielders to let James find space and do some serious damage.

If this is the route we are going I just hope we sign a quality right wide forward/inside forward too and we really will have a good balanced side (on paper) IMO. Light years ahead of what we have now.

That's the best part. In no year or team where Carlo managed James did they ever use 4-4-2.

Also Everton fans- Applying nuance and context to each situation.




I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, just think it's amusing that when a someone of real quality comes along that not only would improve us but would also dislodge Sig from the team it's a unanimous yes from everyone, even those who aren't keen on us signing older players on huge wages.

It's right that people are excited over the prospect of him coming here, he's absolutely a level or two above anyone we've signed in a long time imo.

I can't help thinking that we're going after James because we haven't found a right mid we can afford that would be worth buying.

As such we're switching formation to 4-2-3-1 as we can utilise current players effectively out wide / as wide forwards, with Richarlison, Walcott, Iwobe and even Bernard all being effective in those positions.

This is why I love Ancelloti, other managers we've had were so deeply routed in one system and way of playing that if we couldn't sign say a right sided midfielder we'd be stuck... Ancelloti just looks at it and thinks 'what's the best solution' and does that instead 🤘

I genuinely think we can't get a decent right side option in budget so have Ancelloti has just looked at it logically and thought how can we create more... Buy an average right mid who won't two improve us, or utilise existing players out there, buy James,.switch formation and be much more effective that way instead.

Would you not expect that from everyone? He's struggled to get game time when the midfield consisted of Davies and Sig, not sure how this improves?
I know I'm not his biggest fan but I still think he's the one we should be looking to move on and is the most viable to sell given age and wages, Brands should be on the blower to the likes of West Ham, Fulham etc trying to recoup as much as we can

I like Gomes and Mina but it would take a year light years ahead of anything either of them have produced to get an astronomical fee. Iwobi will also inevitably move on for a loss eventually even if he picks up.

You can’t rely on finding a Richarlison to cover up for mistakes. Not that I’m saying Mina and Gomes are mistakes, far from it but they’re hardly stars of the future either.


Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums (http://r.tapatalk.com/byo?rid=88121)

Gomes no, bad buy.

Mina, Iwobi, Kean, a good season or so and you profit on them no problem I think. Hype does so much in this game. That's one of the good things about buying younger. They don't lose value as quickly, and if you can raise their profile or get them performing, value rockets. The bad thing is that they are by their nature more prone to patches of bad form, more likely to struggle under pressure or changes in tactics.

Regarding relying on flipping a richarlison. No you're not wrong, but that is kinda how it works. Limit your risks with smart guys, maximise your returns with smart sales. the point again of buying young is you flip big and have the next one in the pipeline...rassenball sport.

What you should ideally be able to rely on is that pipeline, might not be 40m-50m every time, but good recruitment and importantly good academy development for your talent pipeline is how you make club growth self sufficient and sustainable.

Nobody in the world has a 100% hit rate.

Well this is an excellent thing to wake up to. I think Doucoure is central to our rebuilding of the midfield though, as good as James would be. Doucoure is the kind of all round CM we need to do the dirty work that no one else in the midfield is capable of currently doing. Most of the guys in there at the moment just want to stand around, twirling with the ball on tiptoes and looking pretty.

I will be so happy once we can get some of the guys like Sandro off the books. It will free up some serious wages for players that can actually make a difference.
You need to consider Sandro is our version of James at Real Madrid. They've wanted rid for years and only do this through loans as the financial package for a player of that ability is to much for the target audience. Sandro will go on loans until the final few months of his contract or leave for a few when it expires, don't see many other options

A lot of the time they just quote other people.

Only one story re Monaco in for Doucouré, all others say he wants to come to us (but don’t ref Monaco to be fair).



I don’t think I’ve seen any original transfer content from them for as long as I can remember.

I get the feeling that they’ve either been cut off busy the club or they’ve made any real footy correspondents redundant and just rely on the work experience kid to do basically what @Waltzer (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=1907) does on here and find the shittest links from the worst sources know to man and re-publish

Not sure if that involves just us or whether he’s expect some sort of pay off from Madrid.

Or whether it’s true not of course :)

What a transformation of our right side it would be, if we got the Colombian right sided pairing of James and the often linked Arias. Mirror that Pienaar/Baines prime combo - Jamias :)

Replacing our soft centre slow, weedy girls with a powerful, driving Docoure and Allan would be an even bigger transition. Just wow, imagine it... even better if we loan Moise Keane out and bring in a Belotti for example.

We will probably get gazumped in the last minute and end up with late, overpriced, potential from Wigan and Barnsley, but those four additions are worth happy contemplation over lunch.

I will say 10 Hail Marys and Our Fathers JUST IN CASE.

Obviously no guarantees, and until they're over the line, you can't say anything is definite, but I think the pull of Ancelotti gives us a bit more security in getting these kinds of deals done. James and Allan both want to come and play for Ancelotti specifically, so (although it's not impossible), it's less likely that we'll be gazumped at the last minute than it would've been in the past.

God knows.

There’s nothing to suggest his quality has massively declined so if we get him anywhere close to his top level we’ll have a player who’ll easily be the best we’ve seen in the prem era.

This is like the kanchelskis signing and we all know how much of a game changer he was.

By the way lads, I did a bit more research because my other mate was very much poo-pooing this signing, citing "always injured," "why has his gametime been declining every year," etc.

So we all know he only played 14 games last year, after never having played fewer than 28 the previous 6. It turns out he was only injured for 11 games. Eight of which came early days from a MCL injury. He then missed 19 games because Zidane didn't see fit to use him as a sub or even include him as part of the game day squad.

Gave me another boost in terms of confidence.

I think we have signed better players over the last year and a bit. It will take time to write the wrongs of previous administrations.

Klaassen is fighting for survival with Werder Bremen - they finished 16th last year, so even though he scored 7 goals, not exactly setting the world alight. Rooney came back for a swansong, and actually did OK, but struggled with all of the crap around him. Sigurdsson would have been a decent signing for £30m less, and Williams was a stop gap, but also did OK in my opinion - perhaps on the expensive side though.

We have also had some good signings, but not enough of them to make any actual progress.

That sounds more realistic. €175k a week and 100% of his image rights sounds closer to the kind of deal i'd expect he'd agree to.
Not €85k, thats a mentally low wage. It's so low i'd say we should stop dicking about and just pay the €25m fee Real are haggling over.

In the absence of fringes, the hiring of James Rodríguez to Everton is a fact. The player would soon be traveling to Liverpool to become an official.

From a Colombian reporter on twitter (verified, 10k followers) no idea on reliability.

£22m seems like a decent fee. If we manage to get that down any further, it'll be a pretty good effort.

Agreed. We are heavily targeting the right area once and for all. Every other position can wait until we get CM sorted, although another RB would be nice.

I like that we also have 3 names in the hat rather than just one. Having just one would make me nervous.

Not so sure it's a bad thing. There is the risk of him being poached but at the same time it may free up some funds for other areas, he may be a bit crap and we won't have a player on a 4 year deal on godzillion pounds a week. And if he plays well and we have decent season he would hopefully be happy to sign up on a free.

Post by: 74Blue on August 29, 2020, 11:54:27 PM
On a season long loan, we could see how he settles, and negotiate a permanent deal in January. At that stage he will only have 5/6 months left on his Real Madrid contract, so we could potentially squeeze a little more on the price. Of course he could sign a pre-contract elsewhere, but that's the chance you sometimes have to take. If he's here, enjoying playing every week and enjoying life with papa Carlo, then there is no need for him to look elsewhere. I'm sure we can sort a decent enough signing on fee for the right player.

Don't see a problem with a loan. Less risk for us.

If he tears it up this season but moves on I don't really care. Job done and we'll be in a better position to attract a younger player who will provide a better long term option

Since 2017/18, the teams that finished top 4 last year have signed 1 player over the age of 27 and that's Thiago Silva to Chelsea this week.

Freakonomics fact that mate.

That's 1 summer and 2 Jan windows. (This one still to get going). I'd also wager that winter transfer windows aren't heavily used by "successful" sides.
And one of the teams have had a 12 month transfer ban during that period.

I would struggle to see much upside for Real agreeing to a season long loan with 5 weeks of the window left to go. If that was all we were committing to, even with a solid loan fee attached (5/8m), you would think they would prefer to sit on their hands for another couple of weeks to see if a more attractive perm bid arrived.

From a cash flow perspective, assuming we can get some outgoings moving once these three arrivals have been sorted, a modest loan fee might mean we could do some more business later in the window if necessary.

I know what you're saying but that still accounts for around 30 players.

Here's more on a similar thread

https://twitter.com/elpivoteftbl/status/1298767925508272128?s=19

And attached is when the top players of the sides have been signed, one who was 27, one who was over 27.

I can absolutely guarantee you that James, Allan and Doucoure are all past what is considered peak, and the likelihood of a bigger side pinching them/signing them is much lower, which is what my original point was.

I think a loan makes sense. Smaller financial commitment in a strange economic climate, if he clicks and loves it here, good chance we can get him when his contact expires, if if doesn't work out and he gets lots of injuries, go our separate ways.

Also, maybe he only wants to come on loan for now, given the massive step down he's taking.

Nothing wrong with a loan. Much less risk but with a much lower potential reward too.

Maybe the best real can do is 10m(ish) for a loan deal. Maybe the player doesn’t want to commit long term to us and feels he can command a better contract 12 months from now. Maybe it’s just a compromise from everyone. Be gutted if he’s great and he’s gone in 12 months but the other side of that is we aren’t stuck with him for 3 or 4 years on 170k a week if he’s shit

Both Allan and James being reportedly so keen to work with Don Carlo again that they only really want to come to Everton puts to bed any doubts about the calibre of manager that we now have at the club. Both of these players are CL level players, who should be going to CL clubs, yet they are quite prepared to come and join Mr Ancelloti to work on a longer term project. I have no doubt at all that we will pay them handsomely, but to sacrifice CL football just to come and play for their old boss again just shows his standing in the game and the respect that he commands.

Agreed. Not that I think that there were any doubts.

One interesting (and maybe overtly positive) thought I had was that getting Ancelotti has potentailly fast-tracked Brands' plans.

For example, I think the original plan was to implement vision from the top down, improve academy and scouting etc to the point where we become a weirdly fashionable and competitive outfit operating just outside the top echelon. A bit like those hipster teams we hear of in Germany and Belgium and the like.

Then with the right words in the right ears and by carefully adding a sprinkling of stars into the mix of a asolid team and club ethos, we become a genuine champions league regular.

Regular European football in an up-and coming team in a well-run club now allows us to maximise some of that revenue into some real jaw-dropping transfers. Add a couple of those and we are now challenging the top 4 in the EPL.

But it appears that Carlo joining has changed all that. Top players do not need us to be CL regulars already before they join because they already believe in Mr Ancelotti.

I still think that all of the major, far-reaching club goals that Marcel has will remain unchanged - I just can't help but feel that Ancelotti has sped the whole thing up!

One other thing to consider is weekly wages. I am very happy to have both of these players joining us, but I am sure they will be on massive wages (as they should be given talent and pedigree).

Maybe it’s just the way football is just headed, but I have felt that our massively inflated wage bill has become a huge issue. I really hope as a club this is watched closely and ultimately addressed, as that is the key to long term sustainability.

Why's that, mate (I had to google 'devoed')? I've come around on the idea. Since some - of us, even - think he may be somewhat of a risky buy, maybe it's a good idea to try before we buy? There would also be very, very little fee involved this way (for Madrid, I mean).

Is it possible weve agreed a fee to buy while officially a loan for the coming season so we save money to bolster other areas?

100% agreed. Once I re-level set my expectations, I began to realize that now that we have Carlo, it makes sense to bring in some veteran talent to speed up the 'become competitive' phase, while Brands is still working on the 'build for the future' phase. The best teams always position themselves to compete now with veteran talent while allowing younger talent to grow into their eventual starring roles. For all we know, the moves this summer could be the reason we get to keep the Richarlison, the Dignes, and so forth.

Indeed, but we’ve offloaded one of the £100k club in Schneiderlin, now let’s hope Sigurdsson is not too far behind.

And people forget we got rid of Niasse, Martina, Stek & Garbutt, which freed up another ~£170k or so.

We are the closest club in the prem to doing a Leeds by some distance and it does need to be resolved.

That said, James Rodriguez at Goodison Park. Wowza.

I know we're all under this impression, but how do we truly know, you know? And maybe these signings are a good sign of what's going out. I know in footy manager (yes I know, hardly real life), when you're selling someone you can add a clause saying "contingent on replacing" or summat close to that, so maybe we have some ready to go once we bring replacements in? As long as the books are "balanced" at the end of all this, right?

It's a risk, but the only manager who has got anything out of him since the WC is Carlo.

We're getting quite a south American flare now. Possibly two Colombians and three Brazilians.

Potentially:

              Romero

Colemand  Holgate  Mina Digne

 James  Allan Gomes Bernard

        Richarlison DCL

Very latin lineup if we get Romero or whatever his name is from Utd, plus some of these full backs we've been linked with.

 People are saying tata Gylfi. If he doesn't get sold this season, an unpopular opinion, "I would guess", I think he's bound to improve with better players around him. It's a wait and see. He's disappointed over the last couple of seasons and yes! Nowhere near good enough. I think if Ancelloti were so against him staying, he would be shipped out. It does need to be appreciated that he does have talent. Will Ancelloti and the better players around him help him improve on what we're used to? I hope so, personally. Whatever is missing from his game atm, might just come through with the improvement of the squad. 🙂

No chance Sigurdsson is going anywhere. If anything I expect him to be offered a new contract, to get his wages where Brands wants them and to put some value on his head next summer, rather than leaving him to run down his contract over the next two seasons.

Also I'm hoping a bit of quality around him will give him a kick, as well as freeing him into the areas of the pitch he wants to be.

Pretty optimistic I admit.

The area of the pitch he wants to be in is the same one as Richarlison and DCL so I don’t see him getting there

Just looking at where Ancelloti has historically played James, and looks like he played the 10 role for Bayern, but found this regarding his time at Real under our boss:

'Although Di María spent most of his tenure at the Bernabéu as part of the front three, he played his best football under Carlo Ancelotti on the left of the midfield trio, putting in a man-of-the-match display in the 2014 Champions League final victory over Atlético Madrid in his new position.

Ancelotti decided to slot Rodríguez straight into the same role, and the Colombian played his best football in Spain in that position.

From there, the former Porto playmaker was able to link with Cristiano Ronaldo on the left, providing width when the Portuguese superstar drifted inside. He also offered a threat on the counter with his pace, the ability to relieve pressure by carrying the ball over distance, and create openings through intelligent use of the ball.'

I wonder if we'll see a 3 man midfield of:

James---allen---doucure

With James linking up with Richarlison ala his partnership with Ronaldo at Real?

I think he's only had 1, maybe 2 seasons where he's reached that output, and they were 5-6 years ago. If we get 6-8 of each it'll be more than our entire midfield produced last year and we'll be erecting monuments in his name.

Just back from a week away doing my best to avoid all news whether Everton or otherwise. Now, within minutes, I'm falling down the rabbit hole of Everton optimism as we once again begin the roller-coaster of pre-season highs destined to be blown off the rails by Christmas.

Two out of three and I'm dreaming Europe and a cup, 3 out of 3 and it's Champions League or bust. Our midfield becomes our strength instead of a craven weakness. Last seasons 90 minute nightmares become impact subs and tools to see games out (or, hope beyound all hope, somebody elses problem).

And of course there's Carlo. Previous 're-births' have been beaten down by neglectful parents. This time we have 'Papa'. This time we will be nurtured through to full blossoming maturity. Please, blues, just once, let it be so!

RCN (Radio Cadena Nacional) is not quite the Colombian equivalent of BBC. They are a free-to-air network and are privately owned.

I can't speak to their reliability, but it seems like they rephrase and post things found elsewhere. Not saying they aren't right, but I'd take this with a grain of salt until a European outlet picks it up.

There are obviously questions around him, or he wouldn’t be coming, but I still genuinely think he’s one of the better players in world football. And not just in 2014, now. I don’t think he’d even consider looking at us unless it was for Carlo. He’d easily slot in and boss it at somewhere like Roma, but he’s won the lot, earned shite loads and just wants to go and play for a manager he trusts.

James David Rodríguez Rubio!

The signings of Allan, James and Doucoure strongly suggest that we will be playing a 4-2-3-1 on a much more regular basis next year. If you sign a player like Rodriguez you have to play him in his strongest position as much as is possible in my opinion.
Title: Re: James Rodriguez
Post by: Gary1878 on September 02, 2020, 05:57:21 PM
I think Gomes will thrive having better ball players around him, and guys able to take the ball on the turn under pressure. I'm not sure where James' best position is, but it is the type of signing that you build your team around.

I think Doucoure would give us a lot of options on formation and to be more adaptable. I still see an issue on the right of midfield. Walcott has never really done it, and Gordon is still a little young.

Seems unreal to be able to get a player of James quality for £20m. Also, a 3 year deal seems appropriate. Now, get him in a shirt!

I nipped into the living room to check the score and saw him do that and just went fucking nuts. To do it to my second most hated player of all time as well, goodness gracious what a goal.

James and Carlo
51 games
18 goals
19 assists
3 trophies

Ill take that in his first season

The 51 games part may prove difficult though.

The signings of Allan, James and Doucoure strongly suggest that we will be playing a 4-2-3-1 on a much more regular basis next year. If you sign a player like Rodriguez you have to play him in his strongest position as much as is possible in my opinion.

Personally believe it sets us up for 4-3-1-2 perfectly. James sitting behind Richy/DCL. Gomes/Allan/Doucoure as the 3. Oh, like @sam of the south (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=1686) said just after lol.

Formation aside, that's probably the best XI at this moment. Formation is a fluid thing, and that XI works across multiple formations with a back four (except maybe a flat 4-4-2, as there's not really a second player capable of playing wide if Richarlison is up top).

The two problem areas left are RB and Right Wing. I can see a loan for RB and the wing position will probably have to do for this window, with Iwobi and Walcott still there.

Surely Iwobi has to grab his chance next season and make that right mid his own.

Yup, I'm with you on that, but James & Richarlison wouldn't really just sit back there, they'd be joining the attack in the area from both sides, with Doucoure & whoever (Gomes) holding the advanced midfield positions, threading passes forward or out to the wings. At least that's what I'm thinking of.

He's going to be on the right of a 433 or 442 tucked in ala Iwobi v west ham, whipping crosses on to DCL and Richarlisons runs and they are going to literally lap it up (richarlison 20 goal year coming up).

And

He's going to be the number ten because he's a silky smooth chance creating banger banging ball magnet, and it would be insane to stick him out wide in the prem where even shite players will be quicker and maybe stronger than him, so we need him within 30 yards of the goal between the lines making it happen. We will be spending another £30-£40m on a forward for the right with pace and dynamism who can take a player on. Goals from RW are gold dust. Goals from RW in a 442 are hen's teeth dipped in gold with a lottery ticket on top, but we are going to find one for a fair market value.

I've always called him Rodriguez as that's what he was called (commentators specifically, I think his shirt was James but they all called him James and not Ham Ass) when he first hit the scene for Porto, but that's out of habit. I know that James is probably the correct way now, I'll pick it up over the season though.

Nah, for that to work you need a DM who drops back between the CBs when the fullbacks push up to create width, like a Fernandinho or Busquets.

Not sure about Gbamin but none of Allan/Doucouré/Gomes fit that role

You do realize that entire op-ed piece is conjecture, right? Saying he "played his best football" is pure opinion. If the author thinks he did so over the course of 11 total games (out of the 125 he played), well alright.

But it's an odd opinion, considering he scored 3 goals and chipped in 3 assists (out of 37 goals and 42 assists total in La Liga).

Maybe the author simply didn't really know what he was talking about?

Honestly can't be arsed getting in to a debate with you over one article Vs your favourite stats site.  This one says he played his best footy in Spain during that one season under Ancelloti, and that was left side of a three man midfield.

If you want to find multiple sites that say differently go for it, otherwise it's one site saying one thing, and another saying something else, so pointless arguing about it

I think this just goes to show what having an elite level manager with an amazing reputation and top class man management skills does to your ability to sign players of a certain calibre.

No way we get them if we don't have Ancelloti at the helm, but because we have they're not only willing to come here, they're willing to do so and give their all for the man in charge.

When you see people like Sig pulling out of challenges because he's not willing to get hurt it shows just what a shit show we have become, and how much that's about to change with genuine elite level players willing to run through walls for their manager.

James and Allen coming in will be a sea change in attitude that we can't even begin to comprehend yet imo

Someone do the honours?


It was an early start for James Rodriguez.

At sunrise on Thursday, he rose and made his way to Stansted airport where he caught a 7:30am flight.

His destination was Liverpool John Lennon Airport and a fresh start.

As Rodriguez stepped onboard Everton owner Farhad Moshiri’s private jet, taking his seat in the same luxury aircraft used to shuttle Brazil international Allan to Merseyside 24 hours earlier, the final stages of a transfer that had seemed implausible this summer were in motion.

Eight months ago it was how Carlo Ancelotti travelled to the region he would call home as he became Everton manager and began plotting how to awaken a long-sleeping giant.

First Rodriguez underwent a medical, at a health facility in Liverpool, overseen by the club’s director of medical services Danny Donachie. Then came the final bits of contractual smoothing between his representatives, Everton and Real Madrid.

So after a season when they finished 12th, with no European football on the horizon and with their finances under ever-increasing pressure, how had Ancelotti and Everton got their man?

In the first instance, it is all about relationships. In this case between a player and manager who believe they can get the best from each other.

“Carlo brought out the best version of James at Real Madrid,” a source tells The Athletic. “With Ancelotti, the Colombian evolved in his game and in addition to his talent in attack he sacrificed himself in defensive duties.”

It is a dynamic, the source insists, that is based on deep respect and admiration of how the other operates rather than friendship.

Six days ago when a post appeared on Ancelotti’s Instagram account showing him smiling and leading a pre-season coaching session at Everton’s training ground, it did not escape notice that Rodriguez liked it.

“I believe in positive reinforcement,” read the Italian serial winner’s caption. “Attitude and commitment are key to performance.”

Other key relationships greased the wheels of Everton’s highest-profile transfer in a long time.

The involvement of agent Kia Joorabchian, an advisor of Moshiri, who worked with Rodriguez’s Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes — prominent in aiding Wolves’ successful transition into a strong Premier League outfit — was crucial.

On Wednesday, Rodriguez dined at Babbo, the restaurant in London’s Mayfair area that is part-owned by Joorabchian.

He had spoken to Ancelotti, who others say he holds in fatherly regard, several times over the phone about where he would fit in at Everton and why he should move from the Bernabeu to Goodison.

At least part of that equation — leaving Madrid — was academic. It was not working for the former Golden Boy winner anymore in the Spanish capital and the media in his native Colombia has long speculated about when he would revive his career with a move to a club where he could play regularly (he made just eight appearances for Los Blancos last season).

“Zinedine Zidane doesn’t like James and James doesn’t like Zidane,” says Hugo Cerezo, a journalist for Madrid-based sports publication Marca. “He is not a footballer who has a place at Real Madrid now. He wanted to go to Atletico Madrid last year and they didn’t let him.

“After a season with very few opportunities, it is normal that Real Madrid wants to sell. His salary is high. Everton can face his salary and there is Ancelotti — two decisive factors.

“Nothing was the same as his first year with Ancelotti, who was able to bring the best out of James. He contributed goals and assists, but Ancelotti left and nothing was the same again. He did not fit in with (Rafa) Benitez or Zidane.

“He was not even on the bench in the Champions League final in Cardiff. Last season was the confirmation that he has no more route in Zidane’s Madrid.”

There has long been speculation in the Spanish media about Rodriguez’s next move. He reportedly turned down a move to Ancelotti’s former club Napoli last summer, while a move to rivals Atletico failed to materialise.

Reports from Madrid last week that his deal to Everton had been all but agreed were premature. They were interested, but there was still lots of work to do on the deal — particularly elements around the fee and structure with Everton thrashing out a three-year deal for a fee believed to be in the region of £20 million.

James was not quite the first name mentioned by Ancelotti to the Everton board after he was appointed manager in December. That particular honour, The Athletic understands, went to new Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg during the January window. But James was a name referenced early on in talks about the summer window, and the pursuit of him does showcase the synergy in thinking between the Italian and Moshiri.

Everton had appointed Ancelotti after convincing him that, as one source put it, “the project will now be extremely serious, both in how he is backed as a manager and how the club invest”.

Everton were not able to secure Hojbjerg but they were handed another chance to convince the former AC Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid manager of their intent when he told them of his interest in James.

Ancelotti had recognised the need for more creativity and goals from midfield as the season ground to a disappointing conclusion and he was aware that the 29-year-old was surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu. Although the Colombian has rarely (if ever) reached the heights of the 2014 World Cup, where he won the Golden Boot, he remains a player of star quality.


Convincing Moshiri, who has long yearned for a marquee signing at Goodison and had at the start of his tenure expressed an interest in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas, was never likely to be an issue.

James’ signing, Everton believe, will work on a sporting and commercial level, improving the team’s fortunes on the pitch as well as their appeal off it.

“Carlo believes James can return to his best level and that he can contribute a lot to Everton, building play and providing the extra quality that complements the strikers,” a source tells The Athletic.

Another aspect that appeals to the club is Rodriguez’s formidable social media profile. He has 46 million Instagram followers, more than Manchester United, Liverpool, Lewis Hamilton and Tiger Woods.

He is a big celebrity in Colombia, a nation that is a key part of Everton’s attempts to grow their brand in South America.

With Rodriguez joining compatriot Yerry Mina — and Richarlison, Bernard and Allan representing Brazil — it will allow the club to step up their marketing attempts in the region.

The club will target more online adverts and content in South America, which was viewed as economically thriving before COVID-19, particularly in Brazil. Rodriguez’s star-studded CV makes him the perfect vehicle for converting some of his followers into potential supporters.

There is huge excitement on Merseyside as official confirmation of the transfer nears — rightly so given how rarely fully-fledged elite players turn up at Everton — but plenty of water has passed under the bridge since James’ stellar World Cup in 2014.

James joined Ancelotti’s Madrid for £63 million that summer — at the time the fourth-most expensive transfer fee in history — and with the full weight of expectation that comes with such a price tag on his shoulders. The early signs were particularly positive, with the Colombian racking up 17 goals and 18 assists in 46 games in all competitions, but his best football would almost exclusively be played under Ancelotti, with whom he forged a close bond. 

“He never settled down in Madrid,” says a dressing room source familiar with his time in the Spanish capital. “Sometimes players signed based on performance, sometimes commercial image. He ticked all the boxes when they signed him. But it was hard for him to feel on the pitch as important as he was told he was off it. He is a very nice guy, introvert, low key in the dressing room. Not too outgoing or talkative. A good guy for the dressing room, even when he’s not playing.

“He can do different and extraordinary things. But some players showed extraordinary consistency: Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. James always expected to perform like that but never did. It seemed he was not able to cope with expectations of performing every game, to motivate himself to be excellent in every game.”

There were glimpses and moments, not least in the 2016-17 season when he registered 11 goals in 33 games, but James struggled to find the same fluency under Benitez and Zidane as he had under Ancelotti.

“The problem was that it was between him and Isco for one position,” notes a Real source. “Madrid has to play 4-3-3. Then you had Gareth Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo as automatic (picks). Then Modric, Kroos, automatic. It was between Isco/James to be the No 10. Then, if Bale was injured, for example, you could play James in a front three but Benzema and Ronaldo were also coming deep for the ball and Lucas Vazquez appealed as an option running in behind.

“James’ left foot is amazing, extraordinary quality, but maybe he struggled to cope with both phases of the game. He struggled to run back and do the defensive phase. Isco could do that, which was amazing — honestly, Isco’s physical data was incredible. But with James, his image meant it always felt like he had this big pressure, massive pressure to play.”

Sources close to the dressing room say that Isco felt the situation was unfair as James “had” to play, leaving at least one of the coaching staff under the impression that Isco would force a transfer if he did not receive opportunities.

One source close to Madrid explains: “Sometimes coaches had to make that decision to play James even if he thought the opposite. With James in the early days, it was never as direct as the president saying ‘he has to play’. But if he doesn’t, you have Marca the next day with a front page saying the best player is on the bench and you know where it is coming from.

“There were other complications though. Casemiro wasn’t the big name when James first arrived but coaches realised they needed him for balance in midfield. That squeezed opportunities more. There was always competition. Casemiro, Isco and Vazquez did not have his profile but they were better performers for the team.”

When Ancelotti, who was sacked by Real in May 2015, joined Bayern in 2016, there was an inevitability that James would follow. He did so in 2017 on a two-year loan deal.

Blighted by injuries in the early part of his spell in Munich, James thrived under Ancelotti’s successor Jupp Heynckes, who spoke Spanish and made the Colombian a key man during the second half of the campaign. James, playing in a deeper central role and functioning predominantly as a hybrid between a deeper playmaker and an attacking midfielder, starred and scored against his parent club in Bayern’s Champions League semi-final defeat.

As time ticked on, there was a feeling that nobody could consistently get enough out of him; that he was maybe too versatile for his own good. Bayern had specialists in every position and used Thomas Muller as the link between midfield and attack. Injuries also played a role. As the below graphics show, in his final season at Bayern, James managed 1,138 league minutes — his lowest total since his first season at Porto in 2010-11. On the whole, he is trending downwards in terms of game time per season, although there have been some mitigating factors including omissions from teamsheets.


When he does play, however, his per-90-minute stats still rank with the best of them.


Explanations differ as to why, but Bayern eventually decided against activating his €42 million (£37.5 million) option. “The Germans are very cold people, although I received a spectacular treatment at the club, they loved me very much,” James would later say in an interview with Daniel Habif.

“Living there is not something easy, it is something hard because it is cold with minus-20 degrees, that was very hard for me. There were days when I would go to work at 9 o’clock, start the car and check the temperature: minus-28 degrees. I was wondering, ‘What am I doing here with this cold?'”

Not being wanted by Zidane or Bayern does not, however, seem to have dented Rodriguez’s confidence too much as he begins the next chapter of his career. Last week he caused controversy in his homeland by claiming to be Colombia’s greatest player of all time in an interview with a YouTube personality.

The reunion with Ancelotti at Goodison offers James a chance to rekindle his best form and showcase his talents on a new stage. He is expected to be Everton’s main creative force and open up a variety of different options given his ability to play centrally or from the right.

Everton have long sought a wide player who could come in from the flank and contribute goals and assists. No midfielder scored more goals than the three managed by Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson last season, or above registered more than Sigurdsson’s three assists. In this context, the need for a player like James is clear.

Time will tell if the right flank is where he will predominantly play. In his book, Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti said: “With Cristiano Ronaldo, I initially thought the easiest way was to play him with Karim Benzema as a striker. That way, I could play James Rodriguez on the right, with Bale on the left and Modric and another in the middle. People say that I had to play James because the president spent so much money on him but this was not a factor. I wanted James in the side because of his football qualities. He’s unselfish and a hard worker — a true professional.”

Talented, world-renowned and hard-working, in many ways James is made in the image of his new manager. Crucially, there is a sense from some in the game that if anyone can get James back to his best, it will be the Italian.

“Ancelotti is good at trusting players with quality and balancing players around them,” concludes a source. “Maybe he can wake James up.”

Truth is, we're no different to other clubs and the better the player the more complex the deal is, hence why they take a while.

Really though, there's probably a ten day turnover with James and Doucoure from when they were heavily linked to getting them into the city to finalise the deals. How quick do you expect these deals to take?

James Rodríguez passed the medical examinations, he was going to sign the contract and everything stopped.

 There are still dialogues about the transfer by the steering wheel and #RealMadrid .

 In #Everton there is a lot of secrecy.

 Can it be signed ?: Yes
 Can the transfer be dropped ?: Maybe

Time for me to flap a bit, I will be pretty devastated if this falls through, more so than any other transfer.

However it does feel like this is all part of the process, as a transfer reaches boiling point these types of doubts start to fly around. It's not uncommon that we have this stage of a transfer.

I'm off for an evening of golf now, will turn my phone off other wise I'm going to be twatting drives into the bushes all evening.

Well if it's true and he's off back to the airport then he's not signing is he, because surely he'd just wait around to see if could be ironed out with Madrid.

If Madrid have just wasted probably 2 weeks of hard work and our time sorting this deal out then they're a bunch of cunts

Taking a step back and looking at it from an commercial engagement POV I'd imagine the best time to announce would be after 8pm UK time. Later the better considering the amount of followers we've claimed by proxy in South America.
I had a meeting with a load of Latin American colleagues this afternoon. They usually only refer to United if footy comes up, but today they were all excitedly asking about Everton. In Colombia it's been well reported that it's a done deal and that he actually signed yesterday.

This is from a Madrid based journalist - says that James should be the next to be made official. It’s referring to the fact that Brahim Diaz to Milan and Ceballos to Arsenal have been announced.

Not sure if it means they were in the pipeline and now that they’re out the way our one can proceed; or more literally that’s it’s likely to be next

Whenever James is announced, it will almost certainly be at a time where South American will benefit the most.

What's the time difference between the UK and Colombia? Is it more than us, like 6 hours? If so, you'd have to think a 7-8pm Liverpool time announcement.

Don’t know why Doucouré is done but waiting until Monday.

I’d guess James deal is a lot more complicated due to his media presence, agent fees (as noted by the Colombian fella above) and all the details that would have been in his Madrid deal too. His contract won’t be one side of a4, for example.

He’ll also need international clearance. No idea what happens with that over the weekend.

Surely got to be a done deal today, tomorrow at the latest. Put James and the best squad out we can for the cup game. Treat it as a much needed fitness game too. Get a couple of goals ahead and then slowly sub/switch to our B team I reckon.

I’m intrigued to see where we’ll play James. I’d imagine he’ll start off on the right while he gets up to speed. But I like the idea of him as an 8 in a midfield 3 eventually.

Don't think we'll ever play him as an 8 tbh. Would be a real waste of his full skillset. We'll want him in an attacking position as much as possible. This is why I think we'll see either 4-3-1-2 or 4-2-2-2/4-4-2 diamond when we're attacking; so we can sit James just off the strikers.

Shame this can't have been done days ago. Can't imagine him starting against spurs.

I would say there's a near 0% chance we'll see him Sunday, and not much better in the Cup tie. James hasn't had any preseason and played less than 400 minutes of competitive footy in all of 2020.

Would be a great shame to break our shiny new toy before we even get to enjoy him.

They’ll just be waking up now in Colombia.

Can’t wait until the end of the working day there as it would be about midnight here.

Yup that's what I was thinking. It's 8:30am in Columbia right now. No idea what the "best time" would be there though.

How do you know it's not just been him wanting to be announced so badly, for his home country, etc., and is just impatient at how long it's taken? And Carlo's simply been calming him down to reassure him over the (annoyingly long) process?

Don't get me wrong - I hope he signs and everything goes well but the wording is a little concerning. That picture above doesn't seem like he looks too happy either. I get the he could just turn us down and I guess this is a bit of a Robinho moment(hopefully) in that a huge player may be about to sign for Everton so they're not going to act extaticly but I'm always going to be a little apprehensive about a potential disruptive influence.

He should be happy that he’s been stuck in a hotel since Thursday expecting to have been announced at his new club, while having to deal with our loons stalking him.

Acting up could mean he’s been bored and wanting to get on with doing what he enjoys playing football.

Ancelotti has been to chill him out, reassure him that the deal is almost done don’t worry we’ll get it sorted soon, everything is still happening.

Be announced shortly - woohoo

Would really need to know what 'acting up' means to comment. Could be a bad reflection on the player, could be the situation generally, could be the actions of Madrid/agents. Hard to know.

If he did get cold feet though (purely speculation), I'd genuinely rather him not join. Absolutely vital that all our players buy into the plans and managers vision, or it could turn into a bit of a problem. He's a very good player but the team and the cohesion of the dressing room is much more important.

Bit worrying that Ancelotti has had to visit him multiple times.

I don't think it's insane speculation or overanalysing though. Django is clearly an excellent source, and if Ancelotti has had to visit James multiple times over the weekend to settle him down, it's not particularly encouraging news is it?

Mate we've had people who didn't want to be here before, and no matter how talented they are, it's really damaging to the entire squad. Hopefully that's not the case here, but it's reasonable to ask the question given the information Django has passed on.

Surely he’d have heard something on the grapevine if they thought there’s a chance any deals are off? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Nah. We have far more invested. He’s won more in the last 3 years than we have in the last three decades. We need him more than he needs us.

Relax.

I’m not flapping but it’s not a great sign is it?

To be fair, ‘acting up’ is a pretty loose description and can cover a whole spectrum of issues.

It's more amusing to me that everyone believes every letter and word of what Django says when it's positive and reaffirms their pre-existing hope/bias, and when it's a possibly a bit negative or going against what we might want to hear, it's all 'speculation', 'nothing to worry about' 'overanalysis' etc.

It's just that "acting up" and Carlo being sent to "chill him out" is soooo wide open, yknow? It could literally be James wants it done already, and Carlo's gone to commiserate while explaining what the hold-up is just as much as the speculated opposite.

How do you know he isn’t?

What Django said was left open to quite a bit of interpretation but as usual the pessimism has gone into overdrive.

Django said:
"Ancelotti has to visit him numerous times this weekend to chill him out, been acting up apparently. Should be announced soon"

Why would Ancelotti need to chill him out if he was buzzing for the move? Makes no sense. OK, give him a call but 'having to visit numerous times' in just a few days because he's so eager to make the move from Real to Everton?

It's contrived to draw a positive conclusion from the first part of that update, especially considering the lack of announcement. It's not flapping, it's not pessimism - I, for one, am still optimistic it'll be completed because that's how Django signed off.

Nervous/jittery perhaps that things were dragging on with Madrid?

We have no way of knowing what django meant and it could have been any number of things.

Besides the only real important part of what he said was “should be announced soon”

So stop worrying about hypotheticals and calm down.

We all know James personally do we? Not anxious at times or anything? Or are we making assumptions about his disposition.

Nobody knows anything really do they, he could be being a bellend or he could need help from a fellow human from time to time. I think we’ve all read that at times he struggled being a galactico being an introvert and have I g a stammer (?) so it’s in the realms of possibility he needs a hand now and again like most of us do. Or Carlo could actually be sound and they could have the relationship that’s often reported. He might not be the type to tell someone to man-up over the phone and is a decent human being and makes time to speak to people face to face when they need reassurance.

Either way we’re all taking rubbish because we have no idea who these people actually are or how they deal with situations.

Pretty much everyone wants this to happen, I just don't think it's fair to label people as pessimistic when, in the absence of any announcement of his signing (when everything has apparently been sorted for days), they're drawing the only really logical conclusion from the most reliable update we've had for a while.

I assume you meant 'pessimistic' in the general sentiment only because I didn't label anyone anything. At least I don't think I did.

My overall feeling has only been a suggestion that we all relax a bit, for the many reasons listed above.

Everton manager Ancelotti added: “James, as everyone knows, is a fantastic player with a lot of quality and a lot of ability to make assists for the strikers.

“He’s really excited about the project of the Club and the fact we want to improve. He was really excited to sign and I didn’t spend time to convince him - he was already convinced.

Knowing it was coming for what seems like weeks doesn’t lessen the shock of getting such a high profile player.

I’m assuming this is what Moshiri was looking for with Carlo. The lift in quality In our midfield is exponential.

Yes, it’s short-term and carries some risk but god it’s also feckin exciting!

Exactly. Imagine how sycophantic Walsh would’ve been (not that he’d have even got his agent in the room)? Would’ve been a 5 year deal and been given anything his representatives wanted. Done it on our terms which mitigates the risk and with it, any doubt I had.

Great signing, on great terms.

As much as we'd have liked it...it's a really hard thing to take a number off someone. It is essentially telling that player "we don't need or want you." (yes I know most of us would like that exact message given to Gylfi)

According to Ancelotti, James was immediately convinced. This would mean that most of the worrying,  if not all, was unnecessary. Great signing. Were buying serious players. This must start the ball rolling this time around. Let's hope this great World class manager can work his brilliant magic for us. A solid, regular European club, challenging for silverware.

Yep with an optional third or if he plays a certain number of games it’s automatically triggered.

Think we’ve played a very cautious card here. Great signing and if it doesn’t come off we’re not going to lose much.

Phenomenal bit of business. £22m is an absolute snip in this market and doesn’t even represent much of a gamble in my eyes.

We have a player who has something to prove to everyone and himself, and the right man at the helm to get the best out of him. The stage is set and it’s all up to James now to produce.

Brilliant from Brands and Carlo.

The reach he has given us instantly, 40M+ looking at this news today on his social media alone then add in the sharing, re-tweeting, etc. This may not be a game changer but it is a major step in the right direction.

Football wise I think Allan is the bigger signing but for the club's international profile this is just wow. Please god we can perform on the pitch this season and we may at last have found the owner/manager combination that takes us to the promised land.

That’s why for 20m odd quid, this guy will build profile by the bucket load at the very least. It’s almost as important as what he does on the pitch.

It will also say to other players of his class that Everton are big enough to come and play for in your prime, which is the same sort of effect that Ancelotti has had.

Oh, and throw in 10 goals and 10 assists and we will all be happy😀

The best thing about this signing is that it will give Everton a boost on so many aspects even if he doesnt become a worldbeater on field. Commercial aspect, ambitions and reputation. No wonder they had to discuss image rights for days...

And yes - Richarlison can be happy but in the middle of this spending on Rodriguez, Allan and Doucoure people seem to forget what this will do to Andre Gomes. I think he will have a fantastic season with these players around him. It meant so much to him to have Gueye by his side. And this is for sure gonna be the real test for DCL. With players like this around him he should bang them in on a regular basis. Still crossing my fingers for Kean making it happen.

Err guys, we may have understated his popularity.....

That is insane! It's made me even more excited - if that's even possible?

It's not hard to get a buzz in Columbia is it?

I just can't wait to watch him play now. That world class technique is a joy to behold.

His influence is going to be immeasurable.

My company has recently added some offices in Bogota. In the internal company phone directory you can join community groups and stuff so I have just created a James Rodriguez community, in the Everton shirt with the badge prominent, so hopefully I'll get to link with some of my new Colombian colleagues! :)

I'm doing my bit to promote Blues abroad!

I know it's important commercially, and maybe it will help to sign/keep other players, but I'm really not that arsed about all the bells and whistles. Just want the lad to stay fit and play well for the team, and add some much needed creativity to the team.

Personally don't think it's a transfer that catapults us into the big time, as some have said. First port of call is becoming the best of the rest as a bare minimum.

To think we were worried about not taking advantage of signing James as well. We smashed it, hopefully we can keep it up and James smashes in a few golazos

Yeah strongly agree re big time. All counts for nothing if we don't show up.
