Title: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: Bluedylan on December 04, 2015, 03:54:08 AM
Maybe it's a tad premature, but there's fuck all else going on at the moment. Just somewhere to put rumours and opinions and that. No doubt speculation will start ramping up over the next few weeks.

Will we buy this mythical left sided player? (please). Will we get a new keeper? (definitely not).

Who will we sell? Who should we sell? Is Tony Hibbert still getting paid a substantial wage? Will anyone take McGeady off our hands? Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? All important questions that need to be answered....

McGeady will be gone, if he wants to go the Euros he will force through a move.
I imagine Mirallas will be off as well which I will be sad about.

Hopefully we would bring someone in if those two go like.

Mc Geady, Mirallas out.  Random kids in
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: TSGun on December 04, 2015, 05:17:10 AM
It's only my gut feeling but I think Mirallas will stay till the end of the season. We will probably desperately need him at some stage so there's little reason to sell such a talented player. Not sold on him being as unsettled as has been suggested.

McGeady is definitely surplus. Would be good to see him find a new home. He's had such little impact he probably doesn't need replacing.

Forget the goalkeeping situation, it's difficult to see any changes being made there in Jan.

So not anticipating a great deal of action. Perhaps an odd youngster or two.

It comes to something when the fate of a club seems to rest on some early 20's players shoulders.

We wont find another player as capable and young as Stones as easily as we got him - stick him on a bigger contract and make it more difficult for the vultures to pick him away - but if the thirst is there sadly, eventually money talks.

We have been here before, we have ridden out the tough times of losing fox in the box Jeffers (shame we coughed the majority back up for Wright), or Ball or Lescott or Rodwell or Rooney.

Big money made from the youth setup or small fees to other clubs.

How is the club still run on such a shoestring where the latest cutprice superstar sees us defunct.

On an associated tangent, Mirallas seems to have given up on recovering any form for us - pal no player is bigger than the club, we'll get our money back thanks for the goals. What is frightening about this January is that it is the last window before the summer where we could easily wave goodbye to Osman Hibbert and Pienaar just like that before any trading starts. How much further are Barry Howard and Jagielka going to go?

It'll take a couple of big money moves (away) and the obvious retirements for us to be looking at a decimated squad in the summer and a half a rebuild job for Martinez to handle. I like the football on its day when we look the business but I am still rather concerned about handing him the future of the club when it comes to signings. Not the greatest back catalogue of signings to his name. Hell of a next 7 months.

Never going to happen though.

Post by: Cassius on December 04, 2015, 03:11:11 PM
We don't have much money, so I'd imagine we would be going for loans or paying a knock-down price for players whose contract is ending in the summer.

That narrows down the pool of players and perhaps their quality. However we have picked up some decent players in recent years who have ticked these boxes - Arteta, Pienaar, Lennon, McGeady (heh heh) so you never know.

Personally, I'd like a new goalkeeper, a left sided midfielder and a backup to Lukaku.

Post by: Sir Stealth on December 04, 2015, 05:45:09 PM
you would have to assume McGeady and Mirallas will be gone in January. Which would surely mean a wide player or 2 coming in to replace them?

I wonder if Anyone would stump up with the same amount Norwich were willing to pay for Naismith again?

If we could replace him with someone likely to get more game time perhaps it would make sense to sell him

I would assume this is Osmans last season too though, could be some serious midfield re-shuffling going on

I'd like Mirallas to stay as i think he is a quality player but if he did leave, i'd be looking at Ziyech, Narsingh or El Ghazi...all good young players and would probaly cost around what we'd get for Kev. Also look towards Germany for one of their young keepers, some many good young goalies over there at the moment...maybe even the lad Bentley at Southend to push Joel if / when Tim leaves.

They might come back in for Stones, but I can't see Mourhino eating that much humble pie and coming back for Lukaku. I wouldn't want to sell Stones to another premier league club if it can be avoided, but I can't see how we're going to manage to keep him, considering he will be on 100k plus P/W wherever he goes. We don't pay that much in wages do we. I think he'll be gone before the start of next season which will be a great pity for Evertonians, he's top class and a one off.

I don't want anyone apart from McGeady to leave, and I want a new keeper.

Post by: Rhys on December 05, 2015, 02:02:02 AM
McGeady is nailed on for the euros as they have fuck all else to pick from.

He will be in the squad regardless however if he is somewhere playing week in week out he will be in the team. To be behind mcclean, Brady etc must be hard for him to take so I think he will be gone for that reason alone let alone the fact he doesn't even get on the bench for us.

Mirallas might force a move because he isn't guaranteed a spot in the Belgium squad and might not get the game time he needs with us.

Naismith, if a good offer comes in early in the window we may consider it.

But generally we don't do much in January so only one or more of the above will change us going for anyone in my opinion.

I think it's certain none of our main players will go.
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: Lxxx on December 05, 2015, 04:55:33 PM
Everyone is coming back to fitness now so if a decent offer came in for a player like McGeady, who is way behind in the pecking order now, then let's take it. Clubs get desperate in January and offer over the odds for average players (£8m Naismith) so something similar again for him or McGeady needs to be looked upon as good business and money in the bank for a top keeper in the summer.

Although something tells me we won't be short of ridiculous amounts of money after the euros.

Martinez and his team seem to be doing a really good job identifying some of the best young talent in the lower leagues, in Holgate, Matty Foulds etc and probably doesn't get the credit he deserves because they are long term investments for very little money. We're also beating other Premier League opposition for these players. Holgate was on his way to sign for Bournemouth and Martinez phoned him on the motorway and got him to turn the car around, and that was that.

I think he deserves credit for the ways he's supported and encouraged Stones, Barkley and Galloway. Not only has it made those players flourish, but it's demonstrating to young players around the country who we want to sign that this is a place you can come to and really develop, and eventually play at the highest level.

Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016

Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: blargins on December 06, 2015, 12:58:07 AM
I like Mirallas, but he doesn't seem to be getting a look in right now. I think we could get top dollar for him in January. Couple of reasons, first is January is always the time where players go for more than they're worth. And with him signing a new contract, that automatically adds value.

SO it might be a good idea to let him go then, get some big bucks and use it in the summer. The amount he's being used, we could have Henon on the bench instead and see what he can do.

Probably alright with letting McGeady go, particularly when Naismith, Pienaar, Osman, Lennon, and Mirallas are all struggling to get minutes. But Rodriguez is not going to be getting any minutes anytime soon, particularly not as the result of McGeady leaving, given they are not at all like for like.

I'd still like to see a strong player to play on the left so that our first choice front three would be better balanced. At the moment Lukaku plays every game, Kone is not reliable for fitness and I have no idea where Steven Pienaar is.

It was toward the end of the summer transfer window that I read the article, can't remember where though. I'd be very disappointed if true, but not surprised. He would have been on a wedge in Russia, and we only paid a nominal fee for him.

I see how you're getting there but it would be absolutely shocking for City to spend big on another CB. They play a high-risk defensive system in which no player, no matter how expensive or highly rated, is going to look good consistently.
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: Duncs_a_legend on December 08, 2015, 08:41:28 PM
Priority is certainly getting a new GK and also a left mid.

I think everyone wants to know whats going on with Mirallas, i can't see him being here after January, but there is obviously more to it than what people think.
I'm also interested to know how people like Naismith, Mcgeady, Lennon, Gibson and Robles are feeling with not getting enough game time. I'm also not too sure where Pienaar and Besic fit in to RM plans when they are fit??

The biggest problem for me is what players are we going to lose if we don't finish top 4 this season??
I know people are saying 'we don't have to sell' but when you look at the likes of Barkley, Stones, Lukaku, McCarthy, Coleman (maybe Deulofeu, but i doubt it) they are now coming to an age where they feel like they are ready to take on the best clubs in Europe, and we might not be able to offer that.

I would be surprised if RM hasnt already had a chat with their agents and gave them the 'give us one more year' line.

I'm aware im sounding all doom n gloom!

It would be Clev to the left and Kone to Rom's spot.  Not ideal, agreed.  But I'm not sure we can get better than that in the January window, particularly if they aren't likely to play barring an injury.

Post by: Maverick7578 on December 10, 2015, 05:58:56 PM
I think Yarmelenko signing a new contract would give me more hope of signing him rather than if he was on a free too be honest. If on a free more clubs would want him and can imagine the contract he has signed will have something with a release clause of say 15mil if a club comes in for him.
Rooney prob will not happen I admit but would love him back.

Post by: sootyjrw on December 10, 2015, 07:11:10 PM
I'd take Rooney either in Jan or in the summer to be honest, but only while he's still got something to offer.

I'd definitely say no if he's happy to run his contract down and only come to us when he's finished. The timing seems right, he's getting shit by Man U fans

On other positions, I think we can get rid of McGeady, Naismith and Mirallas (Kev should be a starter but there's either something going on since he signed his contract or he's upset because he just can't get in the team right now due to the form of Deulofeu and how Kone supports Rom - there's just no room for Kev until someone drops form)

I also think Joel deserves a run in the side before we splash out on a new keeper

Post by: kramer0 on December 11, 2015, 03:15:44 AM
I already mentioned this in the Swansea/Monk thread but I would love Jefferson Montero here. He's a bit injury prone, a big concern, but he would be an absolute terror to defend against with Deulofeu drawing attention on the other flank and his assist total would improve massively from aiming crosses at Rom instead of the Gomis/Eder combo.

I think some other good sides may already be wise to him and Swansea probably won't want to sell but it can't hurt to ask while their form is poor.

Interesting how this No10 we all wanted seems to have gone quiet. Well done Barkley, if a 20 million new signing gave us 6 goals and 5 assists in 15 games we would all be happy I think.

I admit that I was one of those that was really, really disappointed that we did not pick up a number 10 this summer, particularly after Martinez made one our top priority early on. I just did not think Barley had the creativity to take on that role and that we would be better off playing him as a box-to-box midfielder more frequently this year. However, Barkley has shown a lot more creativity, is better in possession, and is scoring goals in advanced positions, and I am happy to admit I underestimated him.

I would still not mind us getting a number 10 to add a little more creativity to our attack, and I still think Barkley will be a box-to-box midfielder in the long term (as does he). But Barkley has been one of the best NO. 10s so far this year, so I am not sure who we would bring in that would be comparable or better, or that we should really muck about with his positioning (particularly when I think constantly changing his position was a big contributor to his struggles last season).

I think what we really need is somebody who plays like a number 10 on the left, drifting in and bring others into play.

With Rom, Barkley and Deulefeu we have three very direct players, we need somebody with a bit more subtlety to balance them out.

If we were to sell Kev and Naisy, it's even more imperative than it already is to get another striker. If Rom goes down, we're fucked. Kone may be able to step in temporarily, but he'd be a pale imitation. Without Kev and Naisy we'd literally have two people in the first team squad who can play up front, and we often play them together in most games. It has to be addressed.

January is simple.  Mirallas out, period.

If we can get a keeper, FANTASTIC.  If not, hold the funds until the summer, when we sell Stones and buy a LW and top-class keeper.  That has to be the plan, balls out with attack, "good enough" central defense in Jags, Funes Mori, Galloway, with youth behind them, and a keeper to start SAVING goals instead of letting flukes in.

This would be a better use of our funds than keeping a 50m CB in the squad and having holes on the left and in the net.

Post by: toffee_scot on December 14, 2015, 02:30:16 AM
Not sure we will get many incoming players, maybe the odd loan player like last season. Ideally we should be looking to bring in another defender who can play as a RB and CB. A new goalkeeper would be nice but I think Martinez will want to keep Howard and Robles.

Outgoing players:

McGeady: He's too far down the pecking order and seems to be quite injury prone. We might be able to get up to £6m if one of the relegation candidates is desperate enough and judge him on his Celtic days.

Oviedo: I like him but again, he is surplus to requirements and injury prone. With Baines back, Galloway showing competency in that role and Garbutt being around (I assume his loan spell at Fulham has ended and he's recovering from his early season injury). We might get up to £3m for him.

Although Pienaar and Hibbert seem to have their constant injury problems, I think they are on their last 6 months and both will probably retire anyway. I'd keep them, even if they might only make the bench once or twice in the next few months.

Anyone know what is going on with Besic? Is he still recovering from injury or does Martinez have other issues with him?
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: Hawkandro on December 14, 2015, 05:53:17 AM
Garbutt is on a season-long loan with no recall option isn't he? Also, as he was injured soon after the move I think he has struggled to make an impact. Could be a wasted loan.

Moving forward we need a better keeper than Howard

Do we have any ideas who could be our next keeper though?

Butland has only recently established himself as Stokes number one. I don't think he would leave them, we would realistically just be a side step for him, and also his price has rocketed up now, I would think Stoke wouldn't want to sell anyways but if they were willing to part with them it would be for well in excess of 20million

If you can get a good keeper it can be a great signing. We have got so much attacking talent, a good goalkeeper is a massive piece in the jigsaw that we need

For me, I'd be looking at letting Oviedo, Mirallas and maybe Naismith leave. I'd want another attacking mid, winger an a striker. Still think we miss the footballing brain in the hole a times.

Unless we get offered sensible money then there's no need for any of our fringe players to go. We don't need the money plus I reckon the money being offered for some of our players in the summer will mean we're not short of a few quid should we decide to cash in.

I don't think we've hyped Garbutt too much. He has two elite skills -- crossing and taking set pieces -- and that's what he's been lauded for. The loan is a perfect opportunity for him to improve his defending and decision-making and face reasonable competition for his place (Galloway has a massive edge defensively, Oviedo is better tactically, and Baines is Baines).

I like our new policy of keeping youngsters around until 23/24. Some may want to leave for a quicker path to first-team football (Long) and some may still be released prematurely (Lundstram, looking the part for Oxford), but we're more likely to make the most of youth if we give them ample time to fight their way into the team.

This would then leave us short on the attacking front so would need to bring one or two in, but a lot of managers have said in the past that its incredibly hard to bring the right players in during the January window.

We could take a loan, have Besic and Jags returning to fitness, and I wouldn't mind promoting some of our younger players to squad-filler roles.  I'd rather do that than spend money unwisely, even if all three of Mirallas, Naisy, and McGeady go (and it's probably good business if they do).
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: blueToffee on December 16, 2015, 10:33:57 PM
Given the attitude in the summer, we aren't selling anyone we want to keep now. We still have a chance to do something this season, plus Martinez needs to show decent improvement this year in terms of league finish.

Do expect Mirallas to go, possibly Naismith too. I hope we have an eye on some replacements though. Just hope it's not another case of selling at the beginning of the window then having to wait until the end to get someone in...or worse failing to get someone in.

I Think selling Mirallas, McGeady and Naismith now for inflated money, and holding off til the summer to invest in replacements makes good sense. Might bring in a loan in January as cover. They would be no loss to the squad at this stage given how low Martinez clearly rates them.

Agreed.  Plus how versatile Cleverley is, and the fact that it's been a struggle for Lennon to find minutes, even though we know he fits our system.  I'm really not worried about squad depth if they go.  We are just talking about 4-5 months.

Sometimes, you just gotta take a chance.  And this seems worth it, to me.  Get inflated prices now, add that to the Stones auction in the summer and we would have some real money to play with in the summer.

TO ME, that's worth the fairly small risk of getting hit with multiple major injuries in the spring and having to finish the season short-handed.  If it happens and costs us a few slots in the table...it happens.  Still a risk worth taking.  The pot odds in our favour, methinks.

The table's as wide open as it has been for years and you're not bothered about "multiple major injuries" and leaving it to a bunch of kids to get dry bummed around the park just to get a couple of million more for players in January.

He says something of this sort every January and I don't blame him -- prices are typically inflated in January aside from the odd player on an expiring contract. My gut feeling: Martinez wants to keep the squad as is but if the right deal comes along, buying or selling, he'll pounce.

I'd like to see us move for Byram but I think Leeds will price him out of a January move and let it go to a tribunal in the summer. I think we're unlikely to sign an attacker this window but we should be keeping an eye on Ziyech from Twente now that they're banned from Europe for three seasons.

Seeing the Stones situation play out in the summer when Martinez stated over and over again that he was staying at Everton, which he did, makes me believe him 100% when he says that Stones wont be moving on in January. Which is a nice feeling as under Moyes I was never sure.

As for the January window, I can only see people coming in if Mirallas and/or Naismith go, even then it may be a short term loan until he can get one of his targets in the summer.

It's open, yes.  But realistically...we aren't finishing Top 6 if we have to rely on Naisy/Mirallas, or any January fill-in replacements (who would need time to settle anyway, at least before they could be effective).  So, when I say "cost us a few slots" I mean the difference between finishing 8th and 10th, in my hypothetical.  To me, that downside risk is acceptable for being unsaddled with bad contracts and in the best possible financial position for the summer.

Either way, we have to stay mostly healthy to finish Top 6.  Period.  We can absorb one injury in the back, thanks to Funes Mori and Galloway, and one in midfield, thanks to Clev.  But that's really it.  Naisy/Mirallas don't change that calculus for me.

Top 4 left my mind when we took 3 of the last available 9 points.

That said, who knows if next season won't be as madcap as this one?  If we meaningfully add at LW and keeper, and only lose Stonesy, we could definitely make a run as high as 3rd, in my view.  And who knows, lightning strikes, and we are in Leicester's catbird seat next Boxing Day, with more staying power.  I don't think it's safe to assume that any of the Daddy Warbucks sides are an instant turnaround case.

They featured pretty heavily the year we finished 5th. I just don't see the point in getting rid of two or three of our senior players if we're not going to bring in players that are going to improve the squad over and above what they do. That's how teams evolve, you don't sell players, not replace them, (or worse replace them with inferior players) write off the rest of the season then try and rebuild the following summer, especially when there's a major tournament on that summer.

And if we finish tenth which you think would be an acceptable finish then there will be far more than just Stones wanting out the door. You need to look at the bigger picture, in order to have any chance of keeping Stones (I don't think we will) Lukaku and to an extent Barkley then we need to finish as high as possible this season, we don't have the option of writing off the rest of the season and hoping the summer works out alright.

Agreed.

We can sell mcgeady if a reasonable offer came in because he is clearly well out of the picture, and for his sake with the euros he will be desperate to start regular games otherwise he will be a sub for them in the summer.

Naismith I could understand if another 8m or around there bid came in and we thought too good to turn down, but doing that leaves us short in the front 2 positions.

And mirallas I can get again for his sake why we'd sell him. But for me we could only sell him if the offer was really good and we could get someone in to replace him be it on loan or permanent. He is a quality player, has his downsides and inconsistency for sure but if we did lose deulofeu for a period of time we'd want that quality to come in to soften the blow as much as possible.

We simply couldn't afford to be 3 players down in the squad and hope we don't get injuries. We can sell mcgeady, but realistically if either of the other 2 go I'd be hoping for a replacement even if it was a loan to cover that spot in the squad until we got to the summer.

http://www.footballinsider247.com/exclusive/revealed-everton-offer-swiss-wonderkid-four-and-a-half-year-contract



Swiss sensation Shani Tarashaj has been offered a four-and-a-half-year contract by Everton, Football Insider sources understand.

The Merseysiders are in talks with the 20-year-old’s club Grasshopper about a deal in which they would sign the youngster and then loan him back for the rest of the season.

A source close to Everton has told Football Insider that a fee has not yet been agreed but all parties are hopeful of reaching a settlement.

Representatives of Tarashaj have been in Liverpool to discuss terms and the Premier League club have made a contract offer to the player.

It comes as Everton prepare to sell Steven Naismith to Norwich in an £8million deal.

Tarashaj is an attacking midfielder who can play in all three positions behind the centre-forward and is renowned for his eye for goal in his homeland.

He has scored nine goals in 20 games in all competitions for Grasshopper this season, helping them to second position in the Super League at the point of their mid-season break.

The young Swiss began the season with five goals in his first four appearances and also scored Switzerland’s goal when their under-21s lost 3-1 to England last month.

Tarashaj has made eight appearances for Switzerland Under-21s, scoring five goals.

No number 2. Plays in the copa del rey and champions league. Bravo is the main keeper for la Liga though they may see ter stegen as the long term number one.

I'm unvoncinced by him to be honest, makes some good saves and really brave but the technique on some of his saves isn't great, palms a lot he should claim and definitely has howlers in him.

Only young though and I think his style is the way a lot of these young German keepers are coached. Maybe not even young remember thinking the same about people like Kopke when I was young.

Hard to call him a terrible signing given he was on a free, even with the high wages. Too often we focus entirely on the ex post considerations when evaluating the signings rather than the ex ante. McGeady was always a calculated gamble. That the gamble did not pay out does not necessarily mean he was a bad signing. Personally, I really liked the thought process behind it, and would be happy with a McGeady-esque signing every year or two, as when such signings do pay off, they justify the failures.

Plays in the Greek top flight, so half decent standard.

I don't think he was that bad, but the fact he bagged a couple of goals really hid the fact that he was pretty limited and was unlikely to make it.  It also seems that it went to his head a bit as weren't there stories about him being a bit big for his boots too?

That was the problem he wasn't a bad player. Ok touch, reasonable in the air and could have been an ok forward. His first problem was he had little bravery at holding up the ball, didn't want to show for it and in his first start for us a few players told Moyes he had to come off as he was backing away from showing for the ball. The other problem was the few goals he scored made him believe he had become zlatan overnight and acted the big man around the place, told fellow youngsters he didn't need to try to score goals in the first team so certainly didn't need to try in the reserves. Not surprisingly he was pulled from the first team which caused meltdown amongst the fan base, and then he was pulled from reserve games. He was asked to go on loan to a good championship team fighting for promotion and he said he didn't need to go there.

He then didn't get chances with the first team as a result, then under Roberto when he finally made the move on loan his bad attitude and not being superstar level meant he was way off being even championship level.

You get players like him who think theyve made it and drift off. And you get others like seamus who were as grateful as can be at opportunity and threw everything they had in to making it a success, spent loads of time with experienced first team players to learn the game, fitness and how to defend better as a right back to which he credits Phil Neville hugely for helping him learn to cope with not being a massive defender and he became one of the best right backs in europe. Thankfully we showed the door to vellios when we did, you don't need players with attitudes like that potentially bringing other bright prospects down with him and instead can look to players like seamus as an example of where hard work and determination can get you.

I don't think he was that bad, but the fact he bagged a couple of goals really hid the fact that he was pretty limited and was unlikely to make it.  It also seems that it went to his head a bit as weren't there stories about him being a bit big for his boots too?

There was a couple of orgy pics flying about at one point.

Elmohamady? I'd rather we signed Elmo.

http://www.kingfut.com/2016/01/03/elmohamady-receives-epl-offers/?


Egypt’s Ahmed Elmohamady has received offers from English Premier league clubs Everton and West Bromwich Albion, KingFut can exclusively reveal.

Elmohamady was courted by several club in England’s top flight last summer following Hull City’s relegation but the player decided to remain at Hull.

KingFut can confirm that Everton have made two offers for Elmohamady already, as well as an offer from West Brom with both clubs interested in bringing the right-wing back to the club either during this winter transfer window or in the summer.

The player was thought to be a target for French giants Olympique de Marseille last, with the club offering Hull City €3.5 million for his services as well as wages just around €1.3 million through a French agency, but the 28-year-old decided to stay at Hull.

Despite the lucarative offer by L’OM, Elmohamady stayed in a bid to make a name for himself in England, becoming the first ever Egyptian and Arab player to start 100 concequtive English league matches.

It’s yet to be seen if Ahmed Elmohamady will leave Hull but KingFut understands the player has no intentions of leaving the Tigers until the end of the season.

The current "school of science" is hardly pulling up trees is it? When you're snatching defeat from the jaws of victory week in, week out, and some of our recent draws have felt like defeats, you maybe have to look at going back to basics a little. We have a cracking set of attack minded players, but they are about as much use as tits on a goldfish when you leak goals at the other end the way we do. I just think having a big nasty grock at the back to stem the flow a little might just take a bit of the pressure off and make the goals that we are scoring actually count for something. As it stands, we're going out thinking that we're probably going to have to score at least three to even nick a draw. That needs to be addressed!

This isn't really transfer talk since there's no chance of a deal anymore, but I'm curious -- how do Evertonians feel about Jonny Evans now?

Obviously he plays in a different defensive setup at WBA and doesn't have the same potential as Funes Mori but I think he would have been a much more effective partner for Stones in the absence of Jagielka.

I'm fully prepared to be tooled for bringing this up. I just want to know if perceptions have changed since the summer when the prevailing belief was "he's shite."

It's the set up of the team rather than the individual players that's causing us to concede so many though.  Shawcross, no matter how much of a big nasty grock he is, wouldn't change anything imo.

Stones and Jagielka are both on another level to that dog.

City, United and Chelsea could all do with Stones and Lukaku. Wouldn't surprise me if they both left in the summer to either of those three clubs, with the best part of £100m coming our way.
Lukaku is nigh on impossible for a club of our size to replace as to be fair he's now playing at a level above a mid table club, which is what we are slowly turning into. Stones, for all his promise, would be easier to replace as Jags and Mori in my eyes wouldn't be a bad partnership for now, with a top drawer keeper behind them.

It's not so much an obsession, more an acknowledgement that he is a very decent and well established premier league centre half. Since what we are doing right now clearly doesn't work, maybe a big grock at the back is the answer. When you are looking at big grocks, Ryan Shawcross ticks all the boxes. Otherwise you are looking at Scott Dann, Robert Huth or Gary Cahill and all three of those are utter dogshite.

He has the versatility to play both as a midfielder and defender so he'd be good for the squad.

The other sides currently linked are Liverpool, West Ham, Watford, and Leicester. At West Ham, he could probably beat out Jenkinson, who gets into good attacking positions but isn't much of a defender. He could probably displace Nyom at Watford and Simpson at Leicester but both of those teams rely on being solid defensively and he probably isn't at the level they need yet (Leicester were conceding like crazy with the more attack-minded De Laet in the back four). He'd be a loon to go to Liverpool unless he wants to cash in at 22.

None of those situations are significantly better than Everton. Maybe West Ham, but one has to factor in their record of general lunacy and the fact that sign six or seven players every summer even when they don't need them. We've improved the careers of almost every talented youngster we've signed recently -- our track record speaks for itself.

Eventually Martinez is going to pioneer a new way of looking at football, where we field a keeper and 10 wingers and he conceives of a formation that splits into two sides of the field (rather than defence/midfield/attack). It will fundamentally revolutionise the world game. We'll be playing a 5/5 with Tim Howard still in net, obviously.

Samir Handanovic could leave on a free in the summer I believe, maybe Inter would sell at the right price.

Someone like Timo Horn could be available for about the price of selling Naismith too.

Post by: Thomas on January 05, 2016, 09:04:55 AM
He has the versatility to play both as a midfielder and defender so he'd be good for the squad.

The other sides currently linked are Liverpool, West Ham, Watford, and Leicester. At West Ham, he could probably beat out Jenkinson, who gets into good attacking positions but isn't much of a defender. He could probably displace Nyom at Watford and Simpson at Leicester but both of those teams rely on being solid defensively and he probably isn't at the level they need yet (Leicester were conceding like crazy with the more attack-minded De Laet in the back four). He'd be a loon to go to Liverpool unless he wants to cash in at 22.

None of those situations are significantly better than Everton. Maybe West Ham, but one has to factor in their record of general lunacy and the fact that sign six or seven players every summer even when they don't need them. We've improved the careers of almost every talented youngster we've signed recently -- our track record speaks for itself.

I've spoke to Arsenal & West Ham fans about this lad and seen him play against us both times at Upton Park and we've all been impressed.

Capable/possible option?

If you want to continue to happy-clap the stuff that clearly isn't working, that's entirely up to you. I just want to see us perform to our full potential. If that means sacrificing some of the silk at the back for a bit of steel, then so be it.

but then how does the team play out from the back with a farmyard animal like shawcross in there?

how do we defend when every time we win back possession we are banging it up field and it's coming straight back at us because we can't play it out?

or are we going to try and play it out and fail even worse because we have a gang of neanderthals back there swinging big size 11's about the place?

Even if he was affordable and not taking away from the defender he is, he'd be a pointless signing for us. For the way we defend it is a massive help if you have pace and mobility. Our full backs push on, our defence gets exposed and the centre backs are often left isolated in one on one positions with a lot of space so it is important they can cope with that. We saw how the defence went all over the place when Alcaraz was playing because we didnt change the way played, and we didnt ask the defence to sit deep and protect Alcaraz lack of pace we still played the same way and his lack of pace caused huge problems.

I know he is better than Alcaraz, but its the same prinicple so I'd like to think the way we ask our defenders to defend any defender he does sign has a certain degree of mobility and doesnt rely on an organised team around them and asked to do nothing but defend the box which is what S'cross is good at.

I like Jenkinson too. He always seems to cause problems, although his final ball and decisions in the final third aren't the best. Still, he's proven PL quality. Byram probably has the greater potential of the two, though.

I have a feeling that West Ham want both Byram and Jenkinson because they seem to get off on buying shiny new players, just like the RS. Y'know, because that next buy is definitely going to solve all of their problems.

One thing I've noticed about Leicester recently -- they are very cynical, committing lots of niggling fouls and always looking for penalties. Their current reputation is feeding itself: Leicester are in good form, so they get the decisions, which reinforces their good form. It's madness -- Inler hacked down Aguero in the box last week, didn't even get anywhere near the ball, no penalty. If Fernandinho does the same to Vardy, the official is pointing to the spot.

Still, they're doing well to exploit the red-hot form of their two best attacking players (unlike us). Plus, they're not getting favorable decisions by surrounding the official, like Chelsea, United, Arsenal, and, most obnoxiously, West Ham (Mark Noble may be the whiniest prick in this league*, even more so than Wilshere, who mercifully hasn't been on the pitch to challenge for the title this season).

*And if you think I'm being harsh on Mark Noble, you're wrong. Watch a West Ham game -- he's in the ref's ear on every decision. He's an absolute twat and he rarely gets called on it.

I'll concede that I don't know what you heard at games, but I still think you are exaggerating in suggesting a large percentage of fans would prefer us to adopt a Tony Pulis style of play .

Further, it was far from unreasonable to have a preference for Naismith over Barkley last season. Over the course of the year, Naismith was the far superior player, both in terms of end product and overall contribution on the field, particularly over the course of the first half of season. That was largely down to the fact that Barkley was pretty awful last year, but also because Naismith is a better player than you give him credit for. I don't believe Naismith should be a regular starter now, and I would never have preferred him to Barkley of this season or two years ago, but he he has more technical skill than you acknowledge and a real eye for goal. Additionally, there is actual merit in having a few players put a real shift in by pressing and tracking players back (see Kone as an example of the dangers in playing a midfielder who does not actually defend).

Thomas have you been living in a nuclear bunker for the last six months? Naismith wanted to go to Norwich on deadline day in the summer but was refused as it was too late in the window. It's been widely reported that they will come in/have come in already with a bid for January and he will move in January. He's said himself several times that he was interested in the move but due to the timing of the bid Martinez wouldn't let him go.

Ah, the truth comes out, all this Naismith stuff is a Rangers/Celtic thing. When did Gareth Barry play for them, I must have missed that part of his career?

It's a bit ironic that Griffiths probably is a bit similar to Naismith although he's probably one of the bigger players at Celtic rather than Naismith who isn't one of the big cheeses here. Funny how a players level within their squad can form someone's opinion, you'd probably love Naismith if he was at Celtic not that that would ever happen now, he too good for that shite. ;)

Nah, kidding. He is really good at letting young talent flourish, and we all want him to turn it round and get it to work still. It's still not too late.

Suffice is to say Martinez does seem to be unearthing promising kids from the English lower leagues and from European sources, so that can only be positive. Obviously not all of them will work out, but with Galloway, Holgate, Foulds, this Swiss lad, Del, Henen etc. It seems like very astute business.

I love it when managers take "risks" and go for talent where the most people think there is none.




(this Swiss lad made me think of the Porto guy- where is he now? Porto?)

He won the league in Turkey I think last year, and then went to a Greek side. Was reading about him the other day. Can't be arsed googling which clubs. Also he worked under AVB, which I didn't realise.

I'm sounding like a little Englander there with 'this Swiss lad' aren't I?

Maybe not this window but a GK is the main weak link of the starting 11 (as everybody has already stated)

We missed a trick not getting Butland a couple of years back and imo we should be aiming for someone of Bernd Leno's age and quality. He won't have the English premium either and GK's are never too expensive (mignolet is 12th most expensive at 9 mil, de gea 2nd most at 18 mil).

I've seen good things of Ruulli at Sociedad too who is also young.

This window I don't see much coming in to improve our starting 11 tbh, I don't see us making any major signings and I wouldn't be too disappointed with that as the squad we have is more than capable if they can turn the corner results wise

I hope we get it done. The sooner, the better -- like you said, there's a spot in the team for him right away.

I don't think I could invest too much of myself into them though. They are a worse version of Everton. They are young though, so will hopefully get better. As long as they beat the Bulls regularly until then, that's fine by me.

I think they'll both retire 100% to be honest, Osman is barely getting a sniff and when he does he isn't up to scratch.

Edit: Pienaar will be off as well i'd think, if Howard ends up going it's quite a rehaul needed with no money coming in for those lads, some of the youth like Galloway will have to step up to being important players.

It's a pretty easy fix. Pennington goes out on loan. Possibly Browning as well, as he'll be coming back from a long-term injury. Gibson, McGeady, and Naismith appear to be on their way out. McAleny, this may not be his level. There's an easy 4 out there, and you could add a couple more (Rodriguez loan, maybe) without much bother.

Of course, this only works if we replace those that leave either via internal promotion or external signings...

If Gibson, Osman, Hibbo and maybe Pienaar leave at the end of the season it's not just four players we're losing but a lot of experience. That only leaves Baines, Barry and Jags as senior pros really. (Howard may go too).
You do need some old heads around the place not just in the team but in the dressing room and around training.
We've looked a bit inexperienced and naive at times this season, which is the flip side of having young exciting talent.

Wouldn't surprise me at all, however it would really surprise me if Naismith and McGeady don't at least leave this month, Gibson as well so with Pienaar on top surely we'd need to bring in at least 2 midfielders.


Yeah, its going to leave us well short. It's still only a rumour though where Pienaar's concerned, whereas, more or less we know the others are being touted to other clubs. As you say, we're going to need at least a couple of replacements. Especially if Roberto was thinking of bringing one or two in anyway.

As Ram says
Bournemouth are well backed by the Russians - although sensibly. As they sacked off talk of moving grounds until they proved they could stay up and stabilise themselves in the premiership.
And whilst that sounds a lot for Grabban, he's a firm fan favourite for cherries fans down here having scored around 35 goals for them in his last stint at the club.

It's a great story from where they were but like with most of these it's a richer owner than the others putting more money in that's helped their rise rather than a miracle.

I don't think Milan are desperate to sell him for footballing reasons but to balance the books from their spending last summer. They have no other valuable assets.

He didn't do well at Monaco but they're one of the most negative big teams so it wasn't surprising that a goal-scoring, flair-player in the wide areas would struggle.

The last three years have been disrupted by injuries, but when he has played he's showed his talent.

Martinez will probably wait until the summer before looking at our forward options. If the big man goes for a silly sum what do we do with it? We ain't going to get a striker as good as the ones who are as good want to play in the Champions League, so we're sat with a shitload of money having to sign two strikers to replace the one top class one we have.

We'll need scouts everywhere at the minute; new goalkeeper, potential new centre half and a potential new striker. On top of the left midfielder.

I also heard that a lot of the money invested went into backroom staff, training facilities and other support infrastructure - stuff that will stick around a lot longer and give more to the club than spunking 8m on something like a Lewis Grabban.

He's said he didn't think it was right if Kyiv got no money from his leaving.

There is a quote from yarmolenko but all he says is that his chairman knows his opinion on a previous offer and that was he wanted to play in a better league than the interested team - surely the premier is a good as it gets unless he means la liga with barca or real?

The general opinion seems to be that we can not simply have these players in. Our squad is full. So we are waiting to move on Gibson, Naismith and McGeady to create space - Byram is the most likely to come in. Yarmolenko is based on whether they will accept our offer. That's based on the fee we receive for Naismith. We are demanding at least 5 up front to give straight to Kiev who want 50% of transfer fee up front for their own targets. I wouldn't be surprised to see us signing a pre contract or getting in a useful loan...

Takeover front is pretty quiet, but the proposed new firm have got the deal which runs until Jan 27th. Should hear more then...

Unless he's had that personal conversation with you because I've seen no interview saying he'd only go to the top 3 in Spain but doesn't mind going to a PL side that isn't in the CL.

Let's see where he has said that he'll only go to one of the 3 top Spanish sides or to a PL club then? I'm guessing you won't be able to provide a single link where he actually states that.

He's not a world beater, he's never played anywhere other than Ukraine so in terms of playing in an ultra competitive league such as the PL, it remains to be seen if he's anywhere near as good a player as his hype suggests.

If Naismith went and we got that Swiss lad and Sam Byram for the same money it wouldn't be so bad. When we have a full fit squad it's not bad at all and with Byram replacing Hibbo, who will go end of the season, and the Swiss kid to develop in Pienaar's position, who also looks like he's off, then it looks like good squad planning. We've also got Garbutt coming back in too.

Let's see where he has said that he'll only go to one of the 3 top Spanish sides or to a PL club then? I'm guessing you won't be able to provide a single link where he actually states that.

He's not a world beater, he's never played anywhere other than Ukraine so in terms of playing in an ultra competitive league such as the PL, it remains to be seen if he's anywhere near as good a player as his hype suggests.

you can't say for sure whether he would be successful, but the attributes and attitude suggest he would be.

Let me find some articles, many of them from the summer.

Suggestions that Yarmo will be a flop as he's 26 and never left Ukraine.

He's a starter for the national team, plays European football every seasons and (apparently on 100k a week) so you can see why he hasn't been in a rush to leave his home country/team.

Good little write up of him on Sky Sports - some quotes

http://www.skysports.com/football/news/21476/10128081/sam-byram-is-in-demand-but-how-good-is-the-leeds-united-player

His current manager

"Four Premier League managers have asked me about him, mostly about his character and what he's like off the pitch," Evans tells Sky Sports. "I couldn't have given them more glowing references than I already have. He really is such a fantastic young professional.

"He's first in the building and he's the last out. On days off, he comes in and he makes sure his recovery is right. He's always with the staff stretching and being prepared for training and when he trains, he trains with real intensity and real quality so I'm not surprised that people want to take him."


Brian McDermott his previous manager said

"I hadn't seen him play live before and after about 20 minutes the ball came out of the sky, he chested it down and played this terrific ball out wide. I turned around to Neil Redfearn and asked, 'Who's that?!'"

"From the first minute we watched him train, me and my staff hadn't seen him at that close quarters before and we immediately saw what a gifted young lad he is.

"He can pick a pass, he can score a goal, he can take balls in difficult areas. His passing with both feet is technically very good, and his awareness of the game around him and his game management is, for such a young age, outstanding. He is going to play in the Premier League."


Sounds like the right type of character we want around the club, hopefully this comes off.

Is he good enough to actually compete with Coleman for a starting position? If not, then I could see him opting for another team. Byram is already 22, and Seamus has at least three or four good years left in him, so he could really go until 25 or 26 before he locks down a starting job here. I suppose Seamus has been dealing with injury problems a lot lately. And apparently he can also play on the right of midfield, but that is not exactly a position where we are short on options.

West Ham might be more attractive for a few reasons: (1) they can potentially offer a higher wage, (2) London (though it's possible the London effect is bigger for foreigners), and most importantly (3) he'll be competing with Jenkinson/Tomkins for the RB slot (both of those players are massively inferior to Coleman, so it's a clearer path to regular first team football).

We have the advantage of having improved the careers of just about every young player we've signed. That must look attractive to a player Byram's age. West Ham did well with Cresswell, but others, like Poyet and Morrison, stalled out after looking like talents (Poyet can turn it around -- he's getting games on loan at MK Dons). Plus, they generally have a more chaotic squad -- every summer, something like 5 or 6 new signings come in.

Yeah, I did not mean to in anyways suggest we should not sign Byram with my earlier comment. Definitely think we should, as I agree that Seamus has not reached quite the same heights as of late and lacks competition. Just think Byram may look at other teams in the league (namely West Ham) and think he has a better chance at starting.

We have no cover for Coleman, so this signing is a no brainer. Of course Coleman shouldn't be sold, then we'd be in a worse position than now.

What we are doing is planning for the future. Right now Coleman and Baines are our first choice, in a few years time, it could be Byram and Garbutt.

Assuming Stones stays, we have some good potential young star defenders coming through with Galloway, and Mori as well.

Coleman was never trained by a professional academy, and came into the game pretty late.

Considering that, hes done really well to get where he is.

What he lacks for in technical ability he makes up for in other areas.

I actually think he's turned into a brilliant all round, modern day fullback.

We have no cover for Coleman, so this signing is a no brainer. Of course Coleman shouldn't be sold, then we'd be in a worse position than now.

What we are doing is planning for the future. Right now Coleman and Baines are our first choice, in a few years time, it could be Byram and Garbutt.

Assuming Stones stays, we have some good potential young star defenders coming through with Galloway, and Mori as well.

I like what Martinez is doing on this side of things.

If we get back into Europe next season we will need more cover as well. Byram is a no brainer for me.

I doubt Howard will go this month. It's certainly not impossible but highly unlikely.

He definitely still has value in the US. There are some sturdy MLS keepers but a lot of them are poor in terms of catching the ball and commanding their area so he'll still be an upgrade in those areas. Add in his shot-stopping ability (still strong, except in 1 v. 1 situations where he tends to go down too early) and the national recognition for his performances in the last World Cup and we should recover a decent fee if we sell him.

Yeah, I think Coleman is suffering from his own success two seasons ago and is getting a bit of a hard rap this season. He was so good offensively that year, and people now think he is playing poorly if he does not reach those absurd levels. I do think he has fallen off a bit offensively, but that is more the the product of his regressing to the mean and playing with Deulofeu than anything else. And defensively, I think this has been his best season for us. He has been caught out twice, and given away a penalty, but otherwise he has been brilliant, completely locking down opposing attackers in most instances.

Not to clutter this board with crackpot theories but...

Yarmolenko's agent, Vadim Shabliy, also represents Denys Boyko of Dnipro, who was chosen as the best keeper of last season's Europa League. Maybe we've been negotiating for Boyko, not Yarmolenko.

Or, more likely, we've been negotiating for neither of them and Howard is going nowhere.

I think people are being overly critical of Coleman. Even if he's not at the high standards he has set over the last few seasons, he is still in the top 3 right backs in the league. Our defence as a whole has been poor which adds to people's frustrations. Now some people are saying he should be dropped for a player who, most won't have even seen play and has never played in the top flight. Remember what Coleman did in the championship? A lot of our fans are hot and cold. A player comes in and has a few good games and he's unreal and worth 25-50million( Mccarthy and stones) and then 30 games later, they are shit and should be dropped. How long before they want Besic dropped? The truth lies somewhere in between on most of our players. The good ones are not as good as we think and the bad ones are not as bad as we think

This puts the Charlie Austin rumours to bed him signing for Southampton. At 4 Mill though, that's a bargain if the fee is true. I think he could have done a decent job here as goal scoring backup for Lukaku. I think we missed out here.

I didn't check that out. Basically, I was going on the seventeen goals he scored in the Prem last season. At 4 mill anywhere near a repeat of those stats and we've missed out. I don't think he's a great footballer by any means but goal scoring doesn't look like a problem for him. It's purely academic now like, but I think he'd have been worth a punt at that price.

The teams interested in Aidan McGeady are: Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday and Celtic is the non domestic team. There was murmurings that Espanyol and Real Betis were interested but his wages are a massive stumbling block because despite what the manager says. He is happy to let McGeady go if he proves his worth to them but doesn't show enough to stay with us. He said what he said in the presser because he wants Gibson to sign a new deal if he can prove his fitness. Swansea are interested as are villa

Don't think it's that. It's more that it seemed a good price and we would be stronger with him here as an option. We are not currently apparently looking for a player to compete with Rom. Kone is a valid comparator in the Austin argument.

Ideally the business id like to see us do. Which is realistic.

Pickford, GK, Sunderland, 2-5 mill
Byram, RB, Leeds, 3-5 mill
Embolo, ST, Basel, 15-20mill (strictly Lukaku replacement if we feel he is leaving in summer) will give time to bed into prem
Naismith replacement.

Yarmolenko isn't likely

Outs
Oviedo - loan - QPR
McGeady - loan or 4mill - Shef Wed
Gibson - loan - Blackburn
Naismith - 8 mill- Norwich

Wouldn't be a bad idea.  It's him or Stones really and I am far from keen on Stones at rb

And he's been playing all season for Leeds, a week of training ahead and he's not exactly a kid at 22.

It'd seem foolish not to play him.

Think Stones has been quite average of late, far too lackadaisical for my liking, to be honest I would like to see Mori and Jags given a few games.

Byram is not shy about having a shot either . Something I think Ross and Deulofeu need to do more often . Could be a very effective partnership in the offing . Hopefully he knows how to get back and defend as he could well save his Manager some grief .

I think the players reaction to Mirallas might well mean the dust has settled on whatever went wrong . We need a back up CF on loan . Be nice if we could find someone who is in need of playing for a contact for a few months . Not Niclas Bendtner though .

Agreed.  I'm just not sure that money replaces what he brings, especially in terms of heart and leadership up front.  He's a very special young man.

That said, we should be an attractive landing spot for the next hotshot young goal scorer, seeing how Rom thrived here, ESPECIALLY if he stays a bit longer and moves on to CL royalty.

Just don't see what we could offer him. West Ham will offer more money, first team football, and their a club that's going forward.

But it's always disappointing if you miss out on a player that we (the manager) clearly wanted.

West Ham will offer him a better deal, we move on to our next target

Bryam won't sign for us.
We will sell Naismith, Miralllas, Mcgeady and Osman.
We will sign no one else
We will have injuries to Pienaar, McCarthy, Deulofeu and Barry...
We will be fighting relegation...
In the summer we will sell Lukaku, Stones, Barkley and Deulofeu.
Besic will be sound tho.

Homer's Brain: Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts.
Homer: Explain how!

Haha. Agree, but then can we get a guaranteed 1 in 2 striker that is willing to come here and who can hit the ground running?

I've said before that we almost expect every transfer to work out as we have few flops. It only takes a £30m donkey of Soldado/Benteke proportions and it'd set us back years.

This article seems to suggest that Byram will walk into the West Ham side as RB. If that is the case, then you can't really blame the guy for choosing West Ham over Everton, as though it is possible he might beat out Coleman for the starting spot, it is fairly unlikely.

Understandable if he chooses West Ham over Everton because he wants to play. Still disappointing though.

DUO IN FOR BYRAM

Sky sources understand West Ham have matched Everton's offer for Leeds Uniteddefender Sam Byram and it's now down to the player himself to decide where he goes.

Everton remain hopeful of concluding a deal for the 22-year-old, who did feature in Leeds' squad on Saturday but did train today. 
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016

Riding high in the league about, about to move stadiums and maybe attract a new owner besides the pull of London.

They're as an attractive a proposition as us at the moment, maybe more so, without the need to resorting to gazumping us on this.

Not necessarily. If you're an up and coming player, and you play regularly in an average team, it's often easier to stand out. Even West Ham is a big step up for him from Leeds, and playing regularly is more important than the overall quality of the team.

Got to agree. That lad Jenkinson they've got on loan from Arsenal has come on leaps and bounds since he's gone to West Ham. He's played 50 odd games for them in a season and and half. Good incentive for a young defender like Byram IMO.

West Ham are a short term proposition, they have a very small window to do something and fair play to the cunts for doing it. Bilic carries a similar appeal to Martinez too. Be a shame if we missed out on him but it's not a regular occurence so I wouldn't be distraught.

Got no issue with Byram if he joins them, whether its money, first team football, family reasons or whatever. That's fine and that's his choice.

But what is there to be envious of about West Ham? Seriously. Their history amounts to fuck all, they are run by a couple of grubby wide boy pornographers, they spend silly money on shite players, they are constantly appointing new managers lurching from one way of playing to another and have a totally imbalanced squad because of it.

They've had a half decent season so far, but that nearly imploded because of one injury and I could well envisage a scenario where they plummet down the table and Bilic is out of a job within the calendar year.

They've touched lucky with the stadium and they're in London. So what? They're another basket case club like Newcastle and Sunderland who can't make two good decisions in a row.

There are different attractions, depending on what the player is looking for.

Pros of Everton:

- A very good youth development setup
- A manager who believes in nurturing young talent and can persuade players to feel like they really are part of the club.
- Playing for a historic team that has won quite a few honours in the past.

Pros of West Ham

- Improving all the time and currently 6th.
- Far more likely to get game time there than if he was competing with Seamus Coleman
- Byram is from Essex so a move to London might be more convenient family wise for him.

So the decision is his to make...

I can see without being an Everton fan the differences between the clubs without needing Everton glasses on

We are the bigger club
Yes West ham may finish above this year how many other times tho?

Are they better supported? Will they sell out that ground?

Is he guaranteed to be ahead of jenkinson?  Jenkinson is second choice

If it's family down there fair enough

He could be in Everton team Sunday, play well and be apart of a side that has 4 England internationals in it and regularly has hodgson watching

Traore, at least 5 years ago, was considered to be one of the most promising teenage football talents in world football and made his senior debut for the Burkina Faso national team at the age of 15.

He can play as an attacking midfielder (probably that mythical number 10 role we were talking about in the summer) or he can be deployed as a winger.

I think he might be another one of those foreign imports that Chelsea like to buy and then loan out until at some point they decide to sell for a considerable profit.

Just for some perspective.

Coleman > Byram.

4 years difference in age between the two.

Roberto has found and brought through some decent young defenders during his time here, despite the fact that we cannot defend, and I'm sure he can unearth another young right back. I think they're easier to find than a creative number 10 or a 1 in 2 forward.

I would have really liked Byram in the squad, but not at the expense of Coleman. Let him go get his first team football, I'm cool with that now.

No way Naismith leaves if we aren't bringing someone in imo, Martinez said we always finish windows stronger than we started them and to be fair to him it's one of the things I think he's delivered on since coming. Naismith will get his head down and give his best as always.

Who would you rather go to if you were a neutral......I knew it as soon as i saw he had returned to Leeds to 'think it over' after agreeing terms and completing a medical, he would have signed there and then if he was going to, such a shame as he's a very good young english player in a postion we need strengthening.

To be honest i'm shitting myself a bit, if they've got more pulling power than us now it doesn't paint a great picture for other prospective targets thinking about joining us. Isn't this the THIRD player West Ham have swooped in a got at the expense off us this season after Payet and Ogbonna? Doesn't look good does it

Seriously mate, you've lost all sense of perspective. It's happened to me before, and it happens to everyone. Don't stress about West Ham in the slightest until they put 2 or 3 strong seasons together.

They haven't got more pulling power than us, the lad is going to get game time right from the start whereas coming here, other than Coleman being injured he isn't. Ogbonna by all accounts hasn't been a great loss and I don't think we ever got to the stage of talking about a deal for Payet.

Moan for moaning sake at times with some people. Over the years there's been very few players we have lost out on that have proved to go on and been a miss for us.

Well this will be the second weak seasons for us in a row (barring a change of manager to one who can get his team to defend) so when is it time to get worried? West Ham will finish way above us this season and probably get into Europe whilst signing our transfer targets, not worried yet?

No

Like I say, if they put two of three Top 6 finishes then we can start considering them as direct competition, but til then they're a tinpot club run by morons in my eyes. And even then, they still are. There's no comparison for me. I couldn't feel less threatened by a club like West Ham.

Every club misses out on targets. We've got nowt to worry about on that front. In the last couple of years we've signed Lukaku, Besic, Deulofeu, Galloway etc (not to mention people like Holgate, Tarashaj, Foulds).

I'm still not even convinced they'll finish above us this season.

I'm sorry mate but because of their league position and their location with the new stadium they have more pulling power than us. Full stop.

I don't think it's that bad a loss if he's gone to West Ham, by all account Coleman will be fit and Oviedo looks a decent replacement in his absence.
Next season i'm sure we'll see more of Browning as well, so not worried about Byram.

I'll be fucked off if we sell Naismith without replacing him with someone adequate, as Kone isn't the man if Lukaku picks up an injury

They're going to a stadium that's just about going to have the crowd in a separate postcode they're that far from the pitch, it might looked decent but I'll bet is a soulless place to play football in.

I'm pretty sure Harry Charsley has been playing RB for the U21s as well. He used to be a goal-scoring midfielder but it seems that we've moved him recently because there's so much talent in the midfield.

Kenny and Holgate are definitely the picks of the bunch although Holgate may end up as a CB.

I've got to say i'm somewhere in between on all this, I can see reasons why he'd go there and i'd also take Adrian, Cresswell, Payet and Sakho a few of which would start for us, it's just laughable how they think they have a better team than us.

18, and his time on loan at Wigan was cut short...

He definitely has talent, but given he hasn't made our match day squad yet I'd highly doubt he is near to being our backup right back.

Of course it's a shame, people should be fussed of he doesn't join because Martinez wanted him and it's a position we need so to get a talented youngster on the cheap who is English it is a shame. Especially as if Coleman isn't there it means moving a 40m centre back out of his best position and doing a job there because he is a really good player and footballer. It would have been much better to have got someone who plays that role naturally and is an attacking player as the way we play it really helps to have someone who can move forward well.

I doubt we will sign another right back this window, in my opinion we were doing it because we were probably trying to get him on a free/tribunal in the summer but Leeds said they are selling him now so we decided to act in case someone else did. It would have been nice to finally have a backup right back.

We've got decent depth in terms of future prospects, its the here and now where with Browning injured for the season and Coleman sidelined that its showing we're a little short.

I've not seen Byram play, but from the reports he sounded like someone who would be a good acquisition but not someone we absolutely desperately needed - unlike a keeper or reliable backup for Lukaku.

A major factor why so many people are alimony about Byram isn't necessarily because we wanted him. It's because
1) media making it look like West Ham have trumped is again and make them look bigger then they are
2) no experienced back up for Coleman

A major factor why so many people are alimony about Byram isn't necessarily because we wanted him. It's because
1) media making it look like West Ham have trumped is again and make them look bigger then they are

Martinez did say this January is about trimming the squad a bit so I expect McGeady, Naismith and Gibson to go with one in and maybe a loan if we are lucky

Couldn't agree more, even on newsnmow today, ESPN running a story that Max Gradel turned us down to join Bournemouth, why produce this story today, he's been injured all season

What a ridiculous statement that is, Eto'o was a flash in pan player and a very disruptive influence in the dressing room, that's why we got rid.

My Eto'o comment went down a treat then I see. I don't know what happened behind the scenes with him but on the pitch I don't think he did a lot wrong. His winning mentality would of helped shut games out - simple

And regarding Tom Davis this is all based on how other players were at his age. At 17 - Rooney was getting premier league exposure, but it's too soon to put Davis in the league because of how much is relied on his position. Very highly thought of throughout the club and England as it goes. If I looked hard enough I'd find the quote Southgate said about how bright our future is and he'll be a big part of it

I did think Eto'o was an unusual shout because of the issues he brought with him (and seems to have taken to other places with him) but I do take your point about game management and the ability to negotiate different situations that require more pragmatism. I feel like we should have those qualities in the team with Barry, Jags, Baines, Ossie and one or two others, but clearly the evidence from this season suggests otherwise in some way.

It's very hard to determine, from the outside at least, how much of these issues are down to our younger, more precocious players, whether it's something specific to the manager and his approach, whether our senior players are a bit too nice and not vocal enough, all of the above or other reasons I can't think of.

So you're saying we've won 1 in 9 and were still only 6 points behind the fantastic West Ham with 16 games to play?

I've got to say i'm somewhere in between on all this, I can see reasons why he'd go there and i'd also take Adrian, Cresswell, Payet and Sakho a few of which would start for us, it's just laughable how they think they have a better team than us.

I'm not saying West Ham are fantastic mate, i'm saying this season they're better than us. Look at the facts. The league table doesn't lie, they are a better team than us!!!!! The reason for this in my opinion is that we have a manager who's teams can't defend and they don't. Simple. And that will make a difference for players deciding between coming to us and going to another team.

For what it's worth, the Bolton lad we've been linked with, Zach Clough, plays in the same types of areas as Naismith (as does Tarashaj, even though we won't get him until next season).

There used to be a brilliant highlight video of him on YouTube but I can't seem to find it, so here is a taste of what he can do:


He's small but looks excellent technically. Could be an astute (or ruthless, depending on how you look at it) bit of business to pinch him off Bolton right now. Rumoured to have turned down Bristol City for £2m so he's well within our price range.

Let's hope he's got something lined up. Cover for Lukaku has to be the priority for me. If he goes down injured for any sustained period of time, what's left of our season is pretty much done.

Whereas we got Tarashaj sorted early on, as a future prospect, I suppose any proper first team signing is likelier to be at the end of January when full brinksmanship kicks in.

If Kev and RM have truly kissed and made up (as I believe they have) then I think our attacking depth is probably set.

Striker - Rom, Kone
LW - Mirallas, Pienaar
RW - Deulofeu, Lennon

Plus Ross playing behind the striker, with Cleverley available to slide in pretty much anywhere (and Osman essentially as Clev's backup).  Without Europe, that's probably as much cover as one can expect given our budgetary position.

Definitely. There'll be really good players around who aren't getting games and might be thinking about the Euros. I suppose it's hard convincing someone to come who's genuinely good enough to help us, but at the same time can accept not being first choice.

Whereas we got Tarashaj sorted early on, as a future prospect, I suppose any proper first team signing is likelier to be at the end of January when full brinksmanship kicks in.

Long isn't bad, but the problem is he doesn't score many so the midfield would need to make up for that. Our midfield really doesn't, only Barkley and Mirallas seem capable of scoring more than five a season. That's why Long would fit better into a team like RS.

Maybe, but I am not a huge fan. His strike rate is really poor, and he is 28, so will not have any growth potential or resale value. Would rather we invested in someone younger and with a better finishing touch.

Post by: kramer0 on January 20, 2016, 11:31:36 PM
Shane Long is unplayable on his day, with his day coming maybe once or twice a season. For the price quoted, we'd be out of our minds to sign him. He's like the striker version of Scott Parker -- solid player, gives his all, and has never been transferred cheaply enough to warrant us signing him.

I'd rather gamble on Zach Clough, small and unproven as he is. The only way for us to kick on in our current financial situation is to gamble on cheap, young potential and the deals we've explored this window (Tarashaj and Byram in particular) seem to reflect this strategy.

Its like having one Chuckle brother flogging him and replacing him with the other daft sod. Before anyone jumps on my back, I'm not saying Naismith is shite or anything, I was a big fan and gutted he left.

 But it's replacing Naismith with the same type of player, almost a carbon copy and I bet we wouldn't walk away with a profit. If our glorious leader does replace him we either need to break the bank and bring someone who's so good, we all shit ourselves in unison  or we go for decent youth. Shane long or any one of that standard is not what we need or God forbid the money vanishes into Kenwrights Thai bride fund.

Don't think he does to be honest. Naisy has the better finish all day long.

He's just pacey and never stops working. A Kevin Doyle if you will.

I think we have room for Long alright. I think he offers a lot to 2 important aspects of the game, creating chances for himself and others especially when chasing a game and secondly he's a great player to have when you're trying to close out a game. His high energy can put pressure on defences and I'd be happy to see on board for £10mill max. I think he's different to what we have already.

One of the football journalists on Twitter reckons West Brom, Southampton and Stoke are planning to bid £19m for a Porto midfielder; if true, it really shows how this influx of TV money is changing the landscape of the PL.

Don't think Barkley would or will leave us for a good while yet, and I'm sure RM has got every intention of rejecting bids for Stones and Rom throughout the summer. Whether that will work, it's hard to say.

Be difficult for Rom to say no, specially with his agent in his ear and in reality, unless we sign a few top top players before he thinks about leaving what more can he do for us??

Yeah I wouldn't blame either him or Stones for wanting a move, if the elite foreign clubs come in for them. But RM being RM, I think he'll try to do exactly what he did last window.

Also, the Euros will be a factor in transfers this summer. Be interesting to see if Marc Wilmots has finally got his head round the idea that Rom is a significantly better player than Benteke and Origi.

The thing is, if we actually pull our heads out of our arses and put together a strong second half of the season, we could still very easily get Top 6 and maybe a cup. Not saying we will, but it's still there for us.

We're 6th points behind West Ayyyym in 6th, and we've got Swansea and Newcastle at home, and they've got City away this weekend, so you could eat up that gap in no time.

The Express can go fornicate themselves with iron poles. So according to media, that's Stones, Barkley and Lukaku to go this window.

I would never want them to leave but your mind does wander 60m for stones, 65m for Lukaku and 50m for Barkley. 175m plus 8 for Naismith. £183....  what we would do with that.

Build a new stadium. Or at least fund a mahoosive part of it. It would be a bit redundant though if were in the championship....

Sadly I think that Rom's agent will ensure he is off. We'll kick off a fuss on the forum, and a few will blame Rom for wanting to leave us... the reality is that we seemingly always seem to resist pushing on to the next level. This is the best side I've seen for many years, but with average management, and limited investment, then I see it dismantling rather than improving.

Maybe so. I can't think of a single person on this forum, or people I know, who would remotely criticise or blame him.

But so what if his agent goes off on one? He's under contract, there's no minimum release clause, he's not going to sit and train with the reserves all season, he's not like that. I don't think it's as cut and dried as you make out.

seriously Everton football club is off its head.

He is right midfielder, but, as he is left footed, he is quite comfortable playing on the left. He even played LB a lot as a youth player. Further, he has apparently got a lot of games at striker, where he has done well. Given this versatility, the move does make more sense, but I agree with you that it is odd for us to purchase a RM regardless.

Yep,  I still reckon we will bring someone in, probably on loan, Martinez dropped a bollock by saying we could make a big signing this month because the fans will expect it now and are starting to get restless because it hasnt happened yet.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to replace Steven Naismith. I can't see Roberto taking a chance on Lukaku not picking up an injury for the rest of the season. Kone's not good enough to deputise, IMO. If he does decide not to bring another striker in he's leaving our results open to an element of luck. In my view personally, it doesn't show adequate professionalism If he takes that risk.

He's done it before in his first season, and as soon as the window closed Gareth Barry landed on Lukaku's shin and we looked fucked. He got lucky that time when it looked like he'd bet out for the rest of the season, it won't happen twice.

The minimum we should expect is a replacement for Naismith otherwise it was ridiculous decision to sell him to Norwich.

Kev is fine as a 3rd striker.  It's not like we'd get relegated if we had to play him and/or Kone there.  Can't justify spending $10M on what might not even really be an upgrade on what those two would provide, really.   We are super reliant on Lukaku's health, period.  Nothing we can REALISTICALLY do in the January window will change that.

I don't think he would be a great option, as I doubt he would be good enough at holding the ball up and bringing others into the play. However, he has only been tried at striker a handful of times and certainly has never had a run of games there. Has he ever started as a striker in the prem?

In fact some of the times Mirallas has played up front is as a sub, and have been successful. To rely on him as a starter for a prolonged period, no.
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016

He's not someone that you'd want to play up front unsupported, that's for sure.  He'd be fine playing up front with someone else who can do the donkey work though, there's no doubting his ability in front of goal.
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: ally2 on January 23, 2016, 02:23:39 AM
My memories of him are of someone being constantly off-side despite being able to see the line perfectly.  I can understand that he might fit in if you want to play on the break, but you usually do that when you're ahead, and if we are ahead, we really need someone to hold the ball and release the pressure.  Unfortunately this is probably one of his worst qualities.  We could play him alongside another striker but that's not really what we are talking about here - we don't have anything like that luxury because we are short.  And even if we did, our wingers would have to be set back quite far otherwise we'd be playing a front four.
Title: Re: January Transfer Window 2016
Post by: Ross on January 23, 2016, 02:50:50 AM
Didn't Martinez try it in his first season for a game and Mirallas looked like nobody had ever taught him the offside rule.

He was awful if I remember rightly he should only ever be a "brake glass in case of emergency" striker, but we've got over a week to prevent that emergency and shouldnt need to go down that route with £8.5 in the bank and loan options as well.

With ally all the way on this one. The idea that we could rely on Mirallas as the man leading the line is frankly ridiculous to me. With respect to Kev, he can't even hold down his own position in the team and put a few games together in something that comes naturally to him, let alone ask him to carry the entire team as a lone striker. Madness.

He scored 20 goals for Olympiacos in his last season he was there and was playing the striker role. I think the Prem is a different kettle of fish compared to the Greek league where it comes to the quality of the defences. I still think he's gambling if he doesn't replace Naismith.

Apart from maybe the early rounds of the FA Cup, Rom plays every minute of every game for us, no matter how many games we've got. It would be frankly amazing if he doesn't get an injury at some point (praying that he won't). So are you happy with Kone as the backup, because it will only take one twinge or one accident in training and that's where we'll be?

Say Rom is out for 2 months at the beginning of February for example. Are you happy for us to go and play the rest of the season (including away at Anfield, a possible cup final etc) with Kone?

I'm with pjk. The manager's job is to ask 'what if?' and to cover all possible eventualities within reason. If he doesn't go and get us another striker in the next week or so, then he's basically playing roulette with what's left of our season. It would be an appalling piece of decision making to just hope that Rom makes it through. And loads of people are pointing it out on here, so it's not like other people can't see it.

Yeah that is the tough part.

I think three options could be:

a) a young hotshot striker type who accepts that he's still developing and that he's not better than Rom but can come in and make an impact.
b) an older 30ish year old striker who's not getting games somewhere, who has the quality and might fancy a loan for a few months.
or c) a player who plays striker but can also play in other forward positions so that if Rom is fit and firing, he still might have the chance to play in other positions.

True. The knock on from this would also be that a lower finish n the league this season would make us less attractive to the type of players we want for next season - AND some of our current players could also be thinking "screw this - I'm off to play for Leicester in Europe or West Ham at the Olympic Stadium!"

Post by: Rhys on January 23, 2016, 04:48:40 PM
Mirallas up front is an option when games are stretched and when he has support. Starting up there regularly is different, he doesn't like hold up play. He isn't brave with his back to his goal, when a ball goes into his feet with a man in his back he normally tries a flick he isn't one to take a whack to win a foul for his team.

So asking him to play the lead front role on his own for a whole game with that mindset isn't a great option in my opinion the players wouldn't want to play it into him if he was losing it consistently or not trying to hold it and it would limit our play a lot.

I have a feeling that if we received a substantial bid for Stones before the window closes, the lad would want to go and might try to push a move through again.

In the short term it wouldn't be awful for either party, long term it would be fucking awful to watch him progress though and he will

And then watching us scramble round trying to buy a defender in the last few days of the window and getting fleeced. I shudder to think. Sorry I even brought it up, now I'm thinking about it.

i'd take it and then just have to bend over to get someone in.

he does look like his heart was set on a move away, heads not right at all and its damaging us.

i feel we will deffo lose Stones and Rom in the summer, and MAYBE Del. I hope we're doing our homework now because the thought of this team without them in it is making me feel sick.

You are leading up to the jump-off point to my natural pessimist Darkest Evertonian Timeline.  With Mr. Kenwright ill and RM out the door...there's a real leadership void.  What's to stop the rest of the Board from basically cashing out the TV money and the $90-100M from Stones and Rom, then hiring a plodding, conservative manager to "get us to 40 points" and that's that?

I no longer see much of a path forward for RM, but I see landmines everywhere I look.

Chances are Rom will be gone in the summer so that may help us attract a striker that considers themselves as a first choice.

If you follow that logic through though, we'll be a striker down with £50+ million in our pockets, surely we'll get an awesome striker with that.

John stones doesn't matter Everton and our results do. We'd be 15pts better off this season with dann begovic and Austin and still have the best part of 10m left over. We'd be a better team going forwards beyond this season too. We can't hoard players when it doesn't lead to an upturn in results

Thing is it was him who handed the request in, so he clearly wanted out.

Fans getting on his back because he doesn't mash it up to the corner flag every time he has it, questioning his ability ('he can't defend!') and even his character.

Truth is the lad could play for any team in this league right now and he'll go on to achieve much more than any of our recent heroes like Jagielka and so on.

If you knew Everton were interested in signing you this window and had just watched that ridiculous display today whilst sat in the comfort of your front room, would you want to sign for us? Would it affect your decision in any way? I reckon it would. So there is a good chance we won't sign anyone, that's another knock on effect from winning 1 in the last 10

What is bothering me is, that i have never felt so disappointed in a loss before, of course there has been worse, bigger games we have lost but yesterday was real feeling of our season is buggered. Maybe it was a feeling of accepting things are not just a rough patch and it is just not the matter of being "unlucky" but the denial has well and truly fucked off now.

The list came out of the top richest 20 clubs in the world and we where 18th??? We are being outspent by as far as i can see by every club in the premiership, if we don't pull our finger out, our fantastic young players are going to ask to leave, as said above. There seems to be no real effort to improve the squad. I could sit hear and winge and moan and throw the end is nigh banners around all day.  Its a horrible, horrible situation.

Also as said above, would potential  game changing player want to come to our club when we are like this at the moment and the way we are playing....... no. *Sigh*

Still don' think Stones wanted to hand one in - think it was a case of the club forcing, as TSF was saying. I think we pushed him to do it, so we could knock it back and make a statement about keeping best players etc. I don't know about his form, but the stick Evertonians gave him probably made him not want to be here now. All a bit sad really.

Not having that for one second.

Why would the club throw a valuable asset under the bus by having him risk the wrath of the fans which in turn would cause him to want him to leave Everton even more just so the club can turn down a bid from Chelsea?  :-\

There is absolutely no evidence to suggest this. We could just as likley be worse off as in my opinion, Dann & Austin aren't fit to lace Stones' & Lukaku's boots and Begovic isn't the same keeper he was 3 years ago and is probably on par with Howard right now.

Stones has been terrible this season. Responsible for so many goals is terrible regardless. What's lukaku got to do with it? I was suggesting selling only stones? Begovic? Not the same keeper or not better than Howard? We'd be infinitely better off without stones and with them 3 this season. Not even like I picked 3 wonderful success stories. Just 3 decent solid players. Stones along with Howard has caused more problems than anyone this season

I am sorry but if John Stones was playing under Moyes he would have sunk like a Stone ( no pun intended ) . Jagielka , Distan , Yobo and Lescott were better at the basics . Stones looks the part the way we want to play but he is still young and is making too many individual errors . However , transfer him to Barcelona and the team they have and the way the play and its fit like a glove time .

When Stones first came into the team, he was doing all the nasty defensive work, throwing his body on the line, winning headers etc etc. He can do all that stuff without question. Either the lad himself, the manager, or a combination of both has completely lost sight of this.

Barcelona would not let me take as many risks as Martinez does. Or hang on to the ball for as long as he does. They would encourage him to play in out from the back and take the ball in tight spaces but I doubt they would be so kamikaze. The fact he knows he won't get dropped, as a 21 year old centre back, says a lot.

Anyone who actually thought at any point that we'd sign him was living on cloud 9.

Not a fucking chance he was ever, ever coming here.

Although I'm not sure why Arsenal would need him when they already have Sanchez, Walcott, Ox and Joel Campbell to play wide. He certainly isn't going to dislodge Ozil from the 10 position either.

Same here. I'd just be happy to get rid of Martinez, get a new guy in, then plan for the summer. I think we can cover every area apart from RB until the summer if we're changing managers now.

If we're not changing manager now. We sure as shit will be by the summer, so I'd rather him not spending anymore cash.

I am sorry but if John Stones was playing under Moyes he would have sunk like a Stone ( no pun intended ) . Jagielka , Distan , Yobo and Lescott were better at the basics . Stones looks the part the way we want to play but he is still young and is making too many individual errors . However , transfer him to Barcelona and the team they have and the way the play and its fit like a glove time .

No offence mate but you do talk some rubbish sometimes.

Some areas more than others. For instance centre midfield we have Barry, McCarthy, cleverley, besic, Gibson, Osman. Out wide if all fit we have mirallas, deulofeu, pienaar, Lennon then the options of Osman, cleverley....and kone....and that's not including mcgeady!

We lack in a lot of real quality depth but with our budgets that's likely to be the case. The key problem for me is the lack of striker depth. We have kone but for me he is a 3rd choice level forward these days because he doesn't have the pace or sharpness of movement to play up front on his own. Nights like last night where rom isn't fully at the races we have little option but to leave him on and hope, and in league games because kone isn't very good we don't have a choice but to flog rom to the point where he can hardly move. Even against Carlisle on Sunday I'd be loathed to not play rom and it should be a game you are happy with who is coming in for him to play.

And no right back cover, which is why it was a shame Byrom didn't come.

agreed, more of a hope type thing.  Had no idea what was the level of MLS interest, or even how their process worked.

MLS is weird and hard to understand, even living in a town with an MLS club. In general, the league "owns" rights to all players, so buying a player from an MLS side means that all transfers go through the league, not the individual teams. The league takes a cut and sends the rest of the fee onto the team.

For Howard's case, basically, the league governs the process for bringing in players from overseas--anyone on the senior US team or with a fee above $500k is subject to "allocation". Howard was named specifically on their allocation list. Essentially, the teams are ordered 1-20 in reverse order of finish the previous season, so that in theory the worst teams get the incoming players. However, teams can trade their allocation slots for other resources (other players, draft picks, cash). Colorado did this to switch from the #2 slot to the #1, so they now get first priority over any transfer from overseas. There is also allocation money, which is essentially a team's bank account for transfers from abroad. It can also be put toward players' salaries to stay under the salary cap.

In general: MLS is confusing. Colorado Rapids has first rights to Tim Howard, or any other member of the US national side playing overseas. Other teams could jump in, but they'd have to cut a deal with Colorado, giving them something of value to move to the top of the allocation rankings.

We've got more quality than we've had in my lifetime, Coleman, Jagielka, Stones, Funes Mori, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Cleverley, Besic, Mirallas, Barkley, Deulofeu, Lennon, Lukaku and Kone i'm happy to see start, then there is Pienaar, Osman and Howard who I think need to be moved on but can do a job in the league, and when you add on Galloway, Browning, Garbutt, Holgate, and all the lads from the under 21's we have decent potential coming through.

We just need a mini clearout which for me would be the 3 I mentioned above, Hibbert, Gibson, McGeady and maybe Oviedo (wouldn't mind him staying) so 6 players out, 1 of which was a key member of the squad this year and the rest have barely scraped a game between them, use the saved wages on 2-3 lads who could compete with the starters and hopefully far younger and we'd be sorted, it's Martinez' tactics that are shit not the side.

I've seen Slimani a few times for Algeria and he certainly passed the eye test.

Still, I'm uncomfortable with the idea of Martinez spending any significant amount of money on a 27 year old. The club needs to look for young players with resale value or experienced players who are available for cut-price deals. It's an unfortunate situation but it's a financial reality of the club -- it would be a bit foolish to spend on an older player in a season where we have nothing left to play for but pride and maybe the FA Cup.

To be fair, the entire Chivas team was dire for a long stretch. They finished last in the Eastern Conference with 30 points from 34 games the year Bolanos played there, managing a whole 24 goals in the process. Their best point total from 2010-2015 was 36 (again, from 34 games), and the team folded prior to this past season.

As you said, he was also a 22 year old playing for the first time outside his home country in a terrible side. I'm a bit wary at the perceived fee for him, but his last two seasons he's scored 1 in 2, then 2 in 3.

That would be so weird. Even as a McGeady fan on some level, that makes no sense to me.

Never been a fan of McGeady but tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and get behind him. It hasn't worked for him but I can't help think something a bit "Distin" has gone on here? He's played 45 minutes in a cup game at the start of the season and that's been it, other than that he's barely even made the bench and hasn't even been on the bench/team in cup games when there's a chance to use more of the squad.

I know we ended getting Deulofeu and Lennon and already had Mirallas who could all play there, it still seems a strange situation given that Martinez chased him at Wigan, then when he came here he was after him as well but he seems to have been hung out to dry a bit this season. There's been rumours in the past of him falling out with managers in the past so perhaps that has something to do with it, but he's certainly disappeared without trace over the last few months.

Agree. A new signing does get the blood pumping, but it's philosophy we're struggling with at the mo, not personnel.
Still, gives Rom a kick up the arse and you assume a genuine striker will be an ungrade on Naismith.

From what I can gather, he is a striker/winger type, capable of playing both because of his technical ability and pace. Which is probably the kind of player we are going to need to purchase in order to bring in a quality backup striker, because no player who can only play forward and is of any real quality is going to want to come to Everton while Lukaku is still around.

Thoughts:

-- This came out of nowhere. It would be odd for talks to be so advanced without anyone noticing.
-- His work rate is excellent and he has just the right amount of skill to create shooting opportunities.
-- The price seems in line with what I would expect for a striker entering his prime years.
-- Is a striker going to solve our defensive woes?
-- We may need to replace Lukaku this summer so it could be a masterstroke to sign that player now and give him time to settle.
-- We would lose him to AFCON every two years.

I think our defensive frailties are in part down to our failure to press opposition enough, which is apparently one of his strengths. So maybe his signing will help the defense a little?

Signing him won't solve our defensive issues but neither would signing a defender. The players have all shown the ability to defend individually and as a unit previously. It's nice to see us trying to replace Naismith with someone younger and potentially more exciting.

Yes agree with that.  Slight worry is mental fragility, especially with our crowd but he looks a step up on Kone.  From what I've read it seems this lad needs managing absolutely perfectly, otherwise we're lambered with a player who just came here because his wife works in Manchester and he won't be going anywhere even if he's out of the picture.

Yeah that was posted last night. I think we'd all quite like to nail his missus. That's my abiding thought on the matter.

Hang on a minute, so if reports are to be believed, we're about to spend 20+ million on 2 strikers and have a day and a bit to get the deals done.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaahahaha

I'm amazed Twitter isn't in melt down saying two strikers coming in when we play one up top definitely means Lukaku is off to PSG.

God help it if he doesn't play today, it'll be rumour carnage all over the shop.

The Sun/Star/Express are already reporting it as 'Everton to sign £13.5m replacement for Lukaku'.

I really hope Niasse has a bad knee or something as this would be a really, really bad buy.

Less than three years ago he didn't even manage to get into an average team in the Norwegian top division and for me that speaks louder than bombs. He managed to get approximately 30 minutes in three games in the the top flight mainly playing for the RESERVES in Norwegian third tier not managing to impress anyone!

To use this amount of money on shit - wow I am impressed!

When that is said, the most sad thing about this is that it means we are NOT going for Breel Embolo. Either because our link to him has been wrong or because he wants to go to a bigger club. We need to start getting link to players like Embolo and not a really, really bad version of Arouane Kone!

Didn't he get voted Player of the Year in Russia though last season?

Embolo's already had a bid of £21m rejected from Wolfsburg, so there's no chance we'd get him.

According to rumours in the summer Everton almost got Embolo on deadline day and it may be increasingly difficult to get him, but thats the kind of player we gonna need if we gonna replace the likes of talent like Lukaku etc. The worrying thing is that Embolo has been known for a lot of people for two years now - it was the same with Martial by the way - if we want to get talents like that we have to gamble on them at a younger age.

Yes he got voted player of the year but it is still a problem that he less than three years ago was not good enough (at 21 years old) to play in Norway! He may have been lucky or the russian way of playing made him look good - god knows - but still I haven't been particularly impressed with anyone coming from the Russian League to England, with maybe a couple of exceptions and as a Norwegian I can trust you that if you have any skills near good enough for the English PL you dont even have to sweat to look good in Norway.

Drogba was still struggling at 24.

I don't know much about this lad, if he comes, I hope he's the right fit, but the fee is a lot to be gambling on. But I guess that's the position we're in now.

But he would still be player of the year in Norwegian League with goal of the season, assist of the season, drible of the season after one game. The Norwegian League is probably on level with League 2 in England - it is in crisis and this fellow was a total disaster.

Ofcourse it is allowed to hope but for me this is gonna be a horrible signing.
