Title: Which Summer SIgning Excites you the Most?
Post by: blargins on July 08, 2017, 06:50:25 PM
So we've made 5 major purchases to date who will play important roles in our team next season. Which of them are you most looking forward to seeing and who will make the biggest impact?

Will run this poll for 14 days and then update it with any new signings we'll make throughout the summer.

I'm looking forward to seeing Sandro the most, but think Pickford will have the biggest impact for us.

Wayne Rooney.

It was a hard choice though as I'm genuinely excited about all our major signings.

Think we've bought some absolute quality players.

I think since Sandro is an unknown quantity, it adds to the excitement.

Think Klaassen will be a real surprise too.

Klaassen for me. He has the qualities which fill a need for us on the pitch but he also seems to have massive bollocks and a desire to run through walls for the shirt, which I think we'll all love.

Klaasen, don't really understand the Sandro hype to be perfectly honest.

If I had to pick one, probably Sandro because I think he has the most upside.

Can't say I'm "excited" by any of them though personally.

I don't think we've made that signing yet...

Sandro I think he's a 30-40m striker we got for 5m. He'll get 20 goals in all competitions next season

Sandro, Klaassen being a close 2nd.

If Sandro progresses like he could well do, he could be the snip of the decade,
potentially has it all..

Pickford for me. I think he is capable of making 'Southall' type saves and his distribution is top class.

With the Lukaku money coming in I think we will be far from finished just yet. I just cannot remember such a major overhaul at Everton ever.

and that's why he leads the vote...upside.  I may have even voted Onyekuru had he been an option.

I didn't put him in because he won't help us next season.

But neither will Rooney!!

Only know 1 Sunderland fan who went regular last season he says his distribution is
superb, reckons it's the quickest and most accurate he's ever seen, trouble is i forgot to ask him
if he meant ever or just Sunderland keepers, so wide margin for statistical discrepancy...

I would grade these signings (taking into account value): A-, A, A+, A, D.  Also a grade A for Onyekuru.

Been a really, really good summer for Steve Walsh and crew.  He deserves a nice pay rise.

WHen he delivers results, then maybe a nice pay rise.

Absolutely. You don't just give stuff away for free, you have to earn it.

Excited about all of them tbh, including Rooney. I think that we have done some real astute business so far this window. All of the younger additions Pickford, Keane, Klaasen & Sandro have the potential to become the spine of a very good team moving forward, whilst the older, experienced head of Rooney, who has won pretty much everything there is to win will be invaluable. Whilst he's been away and won a shitload of medals and trophies, I think that the desire to win something with his boyhood club could be the little spark that drives him on and would be the icing on the cake of a fantastic career.

I'm really excited to see all of them play for Everton and each will have a very different role to play.

For me though I am looking forward to Klaassen the most. He already had a very good reputation at Ajax with a good goalscoring record for a midfielder and he sounds like a grafter who would fit in very well in the kind of team Koeman wants to build. We've been lacking quite a bit of quality in the final third especially linking our midfield with our forward players - is he the missing link I wonder?

Klassen because it's the type of signing we've been needing to make for years but haven't been able to.

Title: Re: Which Summer SIgning Excites you the Most?
Post by: bluenuck on July 09, 2017, 12:05:33 AM
Sandro for me.

Just because there's so much there I don't know anything about.

Who is this guy? why didn't anyone else buy him for the massively low price of 6 million pounds? where will he play? Why did he pick us?

The importance of getting all these signings in early, so we don't start slow and play catch-up all season long.  And have a large enough squad to properly manage Europa.

Because I am too lazy to look it up - how long has it been since we qualified for Europe in consecutive seasons?  Seems that would be a pretty major milestine for us to achieve as a club, to prove we are indeed "back" as a legitimate contender.

In reality it/long term it's Keane. However, I just had to pick Rooney. Welcome back home son.
