If his injury troubles continue then we should be alright with Keane, Jags and Williams at the back.

If he can put together a run of games then we've got a player who was lauded as one of the best around in his Arsenal days.

Happy with this.

Was he injured at Roma and Barca, or just out of favour?

Good player, so wouldn't be averse to it. I really think we need to go big in this position to move on from the Jags, Williams era but, if it isn't possible, then fair do Tommy V would be a good addition.

Injured at Roma Last season. then spent basically the whole time on the bench. Started 4 games.

Work permit issues

I suppose it's possible, as he's only just become a full national and wouldn't seem to meet enough of the supplemental criteria (transfer fee, wages, etc) to meet the standard for a work permit. This is likely why there have been thoughts that he'd be loaned back for a year. From what I can tell, UK labour restrictions for Croatia expire on 1 July 2018, meaning that as full EU members there will not be any work permit requirements from that date.

We must be stuck with the other forgotten man, McCarthy. I was not looking forward to the next international break after this coming one, and watch O'Neill picking McCarthy for Eire even though he will not have played since 2016/2017. I think he did play a few games last season? At least we have a reliable replacement for Gibson.

Nah sick of players spending more time injured than playing for us. Besic has only just come back, we don't need to replace him with another player who's always injured. Plus he's actually injured right now.

Great player in his day, but he might as well retire now.

In true @Defeatist (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=6621) style I got up today, on the BBC Sport page before even making breakfast. Saw nothing and sacked it off.

Then I come on here to find the only reasonably solid link is Vermaelen, on loan and as an option I think I'd be happy. If he can' t stay fit we don't lose out on much.

p.s. has the 'like' button been disabled on the Everton forum in anticipation of it being pure chaos today :angel:

Post by: GLewis on August 31, 2017, 01:28:50 PM
The problem with injury prone players as back up squad options is that you (obviously) can't predict when they'll be injured; and therefore there's no guarantee that they'll actually be available when you need them to provide cover.

While it's more frustrating if a first team player is injury prone they are usually put straight back in the team so you get a decent number of games out of them.

Can't vouch for the website - but it looks unlikely:

https://bnm.ba/de/blog/der-transferschluss-naht-edin-dzeko-zu-everton/

Google Translate:

The transfusion is approaching: To date, at 23:59 hrs, transfers can be made. The English club and employer of Muhamed Besic, the FC Everton, is still looking for a suitable striker. Is something going on with Dzeko?

 

The international transfer platform has been known since the Neymar transfer in the amount of 222 million euros for its madness. "Last-Second-Transfers" were not a rarity in the past.

According to several English media, the Everton FC is still struggling for another striker. After losing a possible transfer from Olivier Giroud, Diego Costa (Chelsea), Edin Dzeko (AS Roma) and Jamie Vardy (Leicester) are the most prominent names on the Everton list.

Diego Costa is the favorite on a transfer. But there were in the past some fierce rumors about the Bosnian national player Edin Dzeko. It plays in an outstanding form at the AS Roma and is very interesting on the European football stage. Does the transfer take place here? Fact is: Edin Dzeko loves the city of Rome and feels very comfortable at the club. He also plays with the Roma in the Champions League but Everton "only" in the Europa League. It is also clear, however, that the English have a lot of money for a transfer and for the possible salary of Dzeko. Will Dzeko succumb to the English "GeldLockruf"? At midnight at the latest, we know.

Does anyone more familiar with the youth set-up know what's happening? Is he a prospect? We're obviously keeping him rather than selling him for some reason.

It's a weird one. I've been searching for a BBC article from earlier in the year where their manager was openly admitting Conor is probably too good for League 2 but if they achieve promotion he hoped it would show they matched his ambition.

Here's an article (http://www.doncaster.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=487727) where Darren Ferguson reckons they even had a fee agreed for him this transfer window.

Post by: Sir Stealth on August 31, 2017, 02:47:48 PM
I am feeling quite pessimistic over the striker

I think Vermaelen and Vlasic are quite likely to come in

But with the striker, I do think we have messed up a bit and put it on the backburner and now we are panicking and don't know what to do

A lot of us accepted that there wouldn't be a like for like Lukaku replacement. Sandro, Rooney and a target man as 3 attacking signings makes sense, but we really do need to land that target man to help it all gel together going forward

My expectations is 2 signings on top of Vlasic, probably Vermaelen and a very disappointing loan or overpriced deal for a striker who isn't quite good enough (on paper at least).

I can't believe it's come down to dealine day again after our early window heroics...

5th loan move for Conor Grant.

Does anyone more familiar with the youth set-up know what's happening? Is he a prospect? We're obviously keeping him rather than selling him for some reason.
I saw him against Notts County a few weeks ago, probably one of the better prospects on the field that day, certainly a keeper for me

Yeah, very poor stats in poor league. And as Benfica apparently want Ä40m for him, hardly in the bargain/worth a gamble territory.

Stats don't show how good his hold-up play etc. is though. If he was a great team player and get the best out of Klassen, Rooney, Sandra, Sigurdsson etc, could be a goer.

Ben Gibson, Batshuayi (loan with view to buy), and Mahrez would do me.

However, I think we'll get Vermaelen for the physio, Okaka on loan, Vlasic will not get a work permit, and we will get Sissoko in last minute.

If Llorente goes to Tottenham it means most likely that Batshuayi is not freed up (if that ever was a possibility?) and most likely free up Jansen (not that I am too enamoured with him) but if we are after someone surely we would of heard of something re Striker.
Tottenham definitely doing late business the last couple of days and today.

Vlasic nears Everton move

Phil McNulty
BBC Sport chief football writer
Everton expect to complete a £10m deal for Hajduk Split's talented teenager Nikola Vlasic - but it is that high-quality forward that is Koeman's main concern.

Liverpool may also be in the market as sellers, hoping to offload £30m misfit Mamadou Sakho, possibly to Crystal Palace, and Lazar Markovic. He could be reunited with Marco Silva at Watford after he had a spell on loan under him at Hull City last season.

It would be fascinating to see another manager obsessed with playing possession football spend money on Niasse.

Maybe there's something I'm missing but it seems like the style of play least likely to suit his qualities.

I really hope wherever he goes he does a decent job.

Sticking with Jesus up top, then one or two nice attacking options perhaps not even making the fucking bench: Aguerro, Sanchez, Sterling, Bony, Silva B, Sane. Surely he needs to play 1 or 2 at the back to fit all his Galactico midfielders/strikers in :)

We are talking about real strikers.
How about 80's martial arts-throb Steven Segal, or tv's Homer Simpson?

Can we please stop with these insane shouts, not having a go at you because you've quite rightly expressed your doubt but...

 :eh:
Plumber is talking about real strikers, as in talented, effective goal scorers.  So I named a Real Madrid striker as a jest.  I hope that even the most delusional of us know that no one is leaving a prominent role at the largest, most successful club, in the world to join our Europa League adventure.

I don't think he is anywhere near as big a loss as you really need him to be to suit your narrative.

His actual match-winning goals aren't plentiful.
His assists were actually more important, and there's no reason not to expect 3 of the players we have brought in to be able to replace his assists.
We're better defensively so the need to 'kill-off' games is reduced.

So we win a match 1-0 or 2-1 instead of 2-0 or 4-1? It's still 3 points.

It's not fair to the supporters but I think our decision makers deserve to take this on the chin, this time without the excuse of not having a full summer. It's all well and good trying for players with the reputations of Mata, Giroud, Witsel, etc. but not at the expense of missing out on other suitable targets. You would have thought we'd learned from last summer but, here we are, in a position to try for whatever the forward equivalent of "£30m for Moussa Sissoko" is.

We almost certainly could have gotten one of Iheanacho, Abraham, Mounie, or Haller and the squad would have been better for it. The latter two probably could have been added without prohibiting a move for a sexier name, i.e. Giroud, who appears to have been the only serious target. We've done some good work this summer (Pickford and Keane especially) and transfers aren't easy but when you don't get players you absolutely need, it's hard not to see it as a failure.

All these sudden desperate cries for a striker...

Were we not delighted to get Sandro Ramirez after all his 16/17 La Liga goals ? And not to mention Mr Rooney.

Plus we have possibly the best young prospect and U-20 World Cup Winner, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Then we got the assist king, Sigurdsson.

OK so we havent been free-scoring yet, but those players havent had chance to gel / get fully-fit.

I agree another top striker would be nice, but its not the huge issue some are making it.  The time we have had since Lukaku left was plenty and if a top striker was so desperate we would have one by now. Or are we saying the Club/Manager are THAT incompetent we have come to the final hours empty-handed ?

All these sudden desperate cries for a striker...

Were we not delighted to get Sandro Ramirez after all his 16/17 La Liga goals ? And not to mention Mr Rooney.

Plus we have possibly the best young prospect and U-20 World Cup Winner, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Then we got the assist king, Sigurdsson.

OK so we havent been free-scoring yet, but those players havent had chance to gel / get fully-fit.

I agree another top striker would be nice, but its not the huge issue some are making it.  The time we have had since Lukaku left was plenty and if a top striker was so desperate we would have one by now. Or are we saying the Club/Manager are THAT incompetent we have come to the final hours empty-handed ?

Hope you are right. Sadly we need another striker if only for covering injuries to two of the others man.

Also, I don't want to judge him yet, I will point out some 'stats' suggest Sandro scored, if I remember correctly, twice as many than he would on average from the goalscoring chances he had. Deadly finisher or one Jelavic spell? I dont' know...

Bottom line, there is no way the club is not that fussed about getting a striker, doesn't mean they are incompetent either but we've broadcast that we're hunting for one!

Fantastic. I can see it unfolding now.

West Ham: "We're interested in your winger, the one who doesn't really stay in position and just sort of dribbles sideways across the pitch."

Everton: "Yes, he'd be a good fit for you. How much are you offering?"

West Ham: "We don't really want to spend much so a loan, perhaps?"

Everton: "Well, we did just sign him to a completely unnecessary contract so I think we'd prefer not to have him back. What else do you have?"

West Ham: "We have this striker who's never fit. But he looks like he could be a real handful. At times."

[long pause]

Everton: "Okay, send us the paperwork."

Partly we were shambolic as an attacking force against Chelsea though and very defensive against city despite them having 10 men. It hasn't been good though obviously the standard of the competition has contributed

However I've seen rooney has been very very good and makes us tick and DCL is the best prospect in the world (I think) them statements are way over the top

Pfft.

Some really good signings have come in, for sure.

And the feeling I got the Sunday Rooney returned was romance itself.

However, none of us can pretend that we are stronger now with Lukaku gone and Barkley due to follow.

And I know MLT gets pilloried for often bringing up the lack of pace thing, but it's true; we ain't got much.... and seeing those arseholes across the park having pace to burn, and then adding Oxlade-Chamberlain as a utility man, jeez.

I'm envious as hell 😔

Right now it feels like we've bought four brand new hubcaps while ignoring the flat tyre.

Trying not to be too pessimistic while the window remains open, but what I will say is we really shouldn't have put ourselves in this situation. We have improved our professionalism since Moshiri came in but this feels a bit amateur hour again.

Currently we've just shuffled the pack and moved around our problems. Improved in aspects of the defence, weakened the important areas of the forward line.

We needed a striker for this to be a good window.

We ain't getting anybody else in here are we? The summer has gone from very promising to a bit below average. We're missing the final piece, I think we've been unlucky with a couple of the transfers.

We wanted Giroud, looks like he lead us on a bit
We wanted Llorente, looked like we'd miss out on him to Chelsea
If Chelsea get him, I'm sure we'd have got Bat whatever his name is. He has surprised everyone and gone Spurs.
Probably didn't think likes of Jiminez, Dost, etc were worth it and we are a level below Werner, Bellotti

We've come out of this with egg on our faces after Koeman has specifically said we needed a striker and a cb/lb as we ain't done.

Just make do with what we've got and hope we have another decent January like this year

Assuming we don't get the striker of course, i have to disagree as I dont think as a starting 11 we are much better while others have strengened. A decent striker literally changes that though.

The real positive for me is that we got rid of some crap.

The lack of a striker has really tainted the window for me. If we don't I think its a bit of a failure and in essence I think we can right off being any higher than 7th at best. We won't score enough goals to trouble the teams above us and our defence isn't good enough

Arteta said he was staying at Everton at around 11:30pm on the deadline day he left us for Arsenal.

I seem to remember around 11:52pm he was on the motorway down there to do a medical, so things can happen pretty late.

Don't reckon so here though.

This Vlasic lad and possibly Vermalen and that's that, just go with Sandro, DCL and Rooney as the forwards and hope our new midfielders, the like of Klaassen and Sigurdson get a fair share of goals and the "spreading" of the goals around more players works, that's all we can hope for it seems.

If this is it we haven't had a good window. Well not unless we've found a system that makes use of 4 number 10s and no forward.

Been a bit of a mess. Would anyone not swap 1 of our many 10s for a forward or a winger?

Its all about quantity. Everton is going somewhere because we have signed 9 players.

Gotta laugh. Yes, we are A better defensive team but someone tell me who is gonna score us them goals...

I really think we are weaker than last year.

If we're still in the same position come 11.00 then attacking wise definitely

From the outside it probably does look really good though. Big numbers of players and big transfer fees. Players like Sigurdsson, Rooney, Pickford. Then people will see forward and attacking players like Sigurdsson, Rooney, Sandro, Klaassen now Vlasic and think there is plenty of goals signed there.

They wont realise because they dont pay attention to us like we do that we are a direct team and try to get people involved high up the pitch early and have got a lot of attacking midfielders/second strikers who all would be better off a focal point.

So to the outside world it looks a good window, to us the fans we see a massive hole in the plan which Koeman has continually highlighted in pretty much every interview over the last few weeks.

There is, but it shouldnt be that we rely on that. It should be (have been the way it is looking) that we get that experienced striker who the team can play off and take the pressure of the likes of DCL to develop quickly and pressure off Sandro to settle straight away. Sandro is 21 with 1 full season behind him and DCL has started about 10 top flight games.

For a club that is talking about challenging for the top 4 and will want to compete in 3 cup competitions it isnt a strategy to hope that they come on so much we dont need anyone.

No not ruined but it makes it extremely difficult to do what we potentially could when it is such a fundamental part of Koemans plans. We saw against Chelsea how much more Rooney and Sigurdsson got involved in the game once DCL came on and made a really good impact at winning some balls and getting us higher up the pitch.

It was going to be a challenge replacing Lukaku's goals with a target striker who could get a good amount but bring out plenty more chances for the other forwards/attacking midfielders. But looks like we are going to try and replace his goals and not having signed that player who would be able to get more out of the likes of Sandro and Sigurdsson for instance.

Doesnt mean we cant have a good season still but it makes it much much harder in the league for instance to have a chance of getting near the top 4 clubs whoever they will be.

Depends on which perspective you have. Cant say it has been much to cheer about since the days of Trevor Steven ironically enough.

But I was in heaven before the first season with Martinez. We had A fantastic pre-season and it was A really good season.

I totally agree with the orker one here - Its not just about names, we lack both players to pick up the passes from Rooney, Klaasen, Sigurdsson and we need pace.

I would love to be wrong but this is a massive blow for Koeman. Kind of remind me of the Moyes-days. Defensively we gonna be pretty solid, but how on Earth are we gonna Even produce chances.

Guess our money came A little too late. Thomas Lemar is rejecting Arsenal that probably tell us how difficult it is for Kenwright to get the attacker of the needed quality.

yeah the other aspect being we could really use another strong option off the bench to change a game that's not going our way or set up differently from a tactical standpoint

even last season that was a limitation because there just wasn't a different forward to bring on when it wasn't working for Lukaku

i think he will surprise a lot of people.

I am at the point, not just with Everton, where I don't have a clue what to even make of football now days, it's bonkers.

To be honest I don't really enjoy it anymore. I watch Everton because it matters to me if we win but I genuinely have no clue when I last watched 90 minutes that wasn't us. Most of it is boring. There's little competition in any leagues. It's rare I even see the goals now.

I think Defeatist does a great job of teasing out the optimistic feeling many of us have by getting us to post in reply to his tongue in cheek 'criticism".
Here we are about 15 months into a new era, we're seeing a team being steadily built with the foundation being youth that will blossom within the next 2 years.  A new ground, sell out crowds and that lovely sense of anticipation you get knowing something good is on its way.
Sigurdsson, Keane, Pickford and Rooney are top class signings. Klaassen and Sandra are full of potential plus all those youngsters coming through and recently bought.
There's  no straight replacement for Lukaku and if there was he'd be £100m. Not been tempted to throw money away on a second rate replacement but showing the courage wait until the right man comes along. Unless that man is already here and we haven't realised it yet and he is still to fulfill his potential.

Siggurdson crosses, no one scores.

It's funny but so true, we've signed players who whip balls in (Bolasie did it a lot last year too) and no dominating presence up front.

We've signed intricate playmakers who need a good striker holding the ball up front. The closest we've got is a 20 year old.

Can see the 1st hal of the season being a bit dull.

No extra CB, losing millions on Ross, no striker and fucking niasse stays. Literally the biggest shit end to what was looking like a promising window

In this macho-drama Koeman, Walsh and Moshiri forgot that the one who actually left the club was A 25 goal striker.

Left back situation worse than the striker one IMO.

There's just no way Baines plays 90 minutes three games a week for months.

Schneiderlin either for that matter and we have no alternative for either whilst both have been quite injury prone last few seasons, it's madness.

For all my moaning I'm actually not really angry in the slightest. It's typical Everton. We just do things a little bit shit. We finished 7th last season decent but not thrilling and we'll do the same this. We are grand at being the best of what's left after the good teams
Season will be extremely dull but let's be honest no one thought we had a chance of anything more than qualifying for the Europa league anyway.

Agree but if we had got a decent forward it would have given us more of a hope of doing more. But aside from that it would have helped us get closer to these teams than we likely will which would have given us a better platform when going after people next summer.

If we were there or thereabouts its an easier conversation with players. If we are 7th no way near them it still looks to the next level players that we are long way from competing with these teams.

Yeah I agree with you. Wanted some exciting attackers to get us closer and play nice attacking football. We've lost a bit of hope, a bit of ground but in reality we are just treading water and we always seem to do. Miles away from the good teams and always near the top of the rest

If we get 7th again.

Clicking has to happen pretty soon, and multiple partnerships are going to have to dovetail all over the pitch, otherwise 1-0 wins will be our main aim.

That is a risky business, unless you have Seaman, Adams, Keown, Dixon, and Winterburn at the back.

We have an incomplete squad, it's even more difficult to take after the superb start to the window.

Overall we had a good window. Pickford, Keane are just two signings that will turn out massive for us.

But Failure to bring in a left footed defender and a central forward target man has basically left us, well, stagnant. Which in my opinion is backwards in this business. 4 of the 6 above us were already miles ahead of us and by being stagnant this summer we have added another mile between us.

the failure to attract players here and the worrying feeling that we still need to sell to buy is going to make this really friggin hard.

Just because the Barkley deal feel through and we didn't sign a striker and CB doesn't mean the two are linked.

I don't but grim is normally functional. We won't be grim like Bolton were aggressive long ball play to your strengths grim. We'll be grim in terms of not having a functioning attack. We'll struggle week in and week out because we simply won't create enough chances not to. We'll never be too comfortable

3 or 4 shots a game so far, isn't it?

Need to start gelling and creating many more chances than that.

It could happen, but there are a few variables that are against us, like lots of new players to settle in, lots of new players to get used to each other, not much width or pace, and no target man which is what the manager craved.

He would destroy his reputation if he did. He's been backed to the hilt this transfer window breaking the club record on numerous occasions. Sometimes transfers don't go through for various reasons and unless your in the business you'll never know the true reasons for it. If he walked his chance of a real top job would be out the window.

Post by: Redartin on September 01, 2017, 05:46:29 AM
A few things arise from all this:

We have had weeks since we sold Lukaku to get a replacement striker, and Koeman has mentioned the need for one in several interviews in recent weeks. At NO POINT did anyone say "we can get one if we sell Ross Barkley" so I do not believe Barkley's about turn fucked up any deal.

I never saw the Moshiri interview but it appears he said something along the lines of Barkley will not feature on the Everton team. Is this not a contradiction of Koeman saying he can still be part of our plans? And who picks the team Koeman or Moshiri? Could this 2nd transfer window fuck-up be the start of a bit of friction between the two? Broken promises, crying for a striker and not getting one? Let's face it Koeman has shown that he shoots from the hip and doesn't take shit, and he only stays the customary two years at places, so a few bad results because of no striker and he could say told you so and fuck off.

With Koeman gone Barkley then signs a new contract, Unsworth plays him as a striker, he dives like fuck every time he gets in the box, we get stacks of penalties, Baines will be top scorer, we finish 7th. Simple.

Funny how stupid reporters are saying most of us are happy with this window.

By the look of this forum most fans are either upset or worried by selling our star striker promoting DCL to replace him.

Also read about Barkley that Everton denied him to go to Spurs, probably because Chelsea outbid them. Ross went to Chelsea still having Spurs on his mind finally pulling out wanting to wait until christmas when Levy finally feels he will be cheap enough.

Probably Barkley gonna sign A pre-contract with Tottenham first, then Levy will offer us pennys for letting him go A bit earlier.

My guess is Barkley didnt desperately wanted to leave Everton, he desperately wanted to join Tottenham and thats where he gonna end up when finally fit.

Its a bit cynical but I would not cry if Barkley breaks his leg making him becoming a Free-agent without any club igoing for a player out injured for a year. He really is gambling

Our scouting network seems really limited to England. Almost all of our signings have came from the prem and we have paid through the nose for it.

i don't doubt that we wasn't trying for a striker but the simple truth is that the ones we wanted wasn't available. And selling clubs have all the power now. Look at the amount of players who tried to push through moves. We needed to be looking abroad. There was no substantial links other than giroud and Costa. All eggs in the wrong basket

I also expect Sandro to settle and Rooney can always do the job, especially with a wealth of attacking midfielders around him.  Hernandez is a one trick pony and would want to play every week which I wouldn't want.

Well then, did any of us really forget who we support? nobody stresses your head on deadline day like Everton, and every year they come up with a new way.

My worst case scenario of losing Barkley in a bitter dispute and replacing with a fella who looks like his da has actually been trumped by...bitterly keeping Barkley?

Koeman said we needed a striker to compete. We haven't signed a striker. This is a failure and anyone who watched our games so far should be able to understand that.

Then I see someone like you who claims to be a fan of the club but who carries out actions that suggest totally the opposite. It has been clear for weeks that you wanted the club to miss out on signing a striker just so you could gloat and tell us all how superior you are. We are all disappointed and are concerned about where our goals will come from, but looking at your responses you are positively glowing.

Now there are two types of people in this world who do that. People who are starved of affection and live miserable little existences and who take joy in being the ones to spread bad news. Or (and I don't use this term lightly) fucking cunts.

Meh, no point in having a melt down.

We are stronger than we were at the start of the window and we're a damn site stronger than we were 12 months ago.

We need to find our identity on the pitch, which is going to take time. All of you who want everything done yesterday need to learn some patience. We aren't Man City or Chelsea of yesteryear, this isn't an overnight project.

We're good enough to get results against most teams in this league, and against opponents in the cup games. We will still be pushing for a top 6 finish.

Yes we all wanted a striker, and it's disappointing that hasn't happened in this window. Hopefully in January we will have re-assessed our options and are able to bring someone in.

You only need look at Chelsea's transfer window, City's Sanchez attempts, Arsenal's debacle to realise that this has been a tough window for lots of teams. Fees had exploded before the Neymar transfer, and then even more so afterwards. We may have had targets lined up, but if selling clubs can't get their targets then the whole thing falls apart.

How many people here have bought and sold houses? Ever been involved in a chain? Ever had someone in that chain drop out? It's exactly the same. To get all pissed off because Everton have "missed out on targets" is far too simplistic a view, it's pretty astonishing how many of you think transfer dealing are akin to Championship Manager, to be frank.

Now that the window is closed we can all settle down and concentrate on the actual football, which is exactly what Koeman and his staff will be doing too.

That's the question, are we stronger?

It feels overall, and I'm probably repeating myself, as though we've just shifted our problems around the park.

Scoring goals is, without risking stating the obvious, a crucial part of a successful campaign. Everything becomes harder when you don't reliably create and take chances. It feels like we're weaker in that aspect though than probably anytime in the last few years.

So because we messed up in not bringing in a player in such a ridiculously important position, it doesn't feel like we're stronger at this time.

I genuinely can't believe we're in a position where we've sold a player who scored 90% of our goals and we've replaced him effectively with an unproven youth team player.

As Swansea reminded us tonight, you don't sell without having another player signed and sealed. It's truly inept.

We could have and should have not sold Lukaku until we had his replacement in.

You've seen enough games with us to know when we have a team out there who struggle to score the whole game becomes harder. Much like at the other end when we had our issues conceding so frequently it puts pressure on us to score 3 times just to win a game.

We have certainly got in some good players, but we're also losing a couple of good ones too.

There is certainly the prospect that players will gel and we'll become a better attacking unit. However, as it stands without that knowledge it feels like we're playing a bit of a shell game and have moved our issues around instead of fixing them.

If we're looking to improve and catch the teams above us, perhaps even just one. It's not enough to be good in some areas, we have to be solid across the board.

Moshie and the marketing department were creaming themselves over Rooney & took there eye off the ball when letting him go, no excuse as we are two main strikers down in effect and not to have signed 1 is discraceful... & Barkley should be forced to face the press/faithful, the shitbag deserves to face the music.

Also is Niasse going to train with the 1st team? Koemans handled this badly considering he's still here and we've now no strikers, his ego won't allow him to back down.... but it would be great if he got on and had a stormer!!!

That's the question, are we stronger?
It doesn't even matter if we're objectively "stronger" really because we're competing with other clubs.

Our first 11 is now relatively weaker compared to Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. Our squad is relatively worse than Chelsea and Tottenham. We *might* have closed the gap slightly on Arsenal, but even then with the Lacazette signing that's debatable.

How we are compared to the sides below us? Well, Leicester improved up front and at the back - and actually look to have replaced the one key player they lost. Southampton? Not sure?

There was a lot of hysteria from certain posters about our failings, who were met with "the transfer window isn't even closed yet; you don't know what's going on."

The summer started pretty well, there might not have been a clear, coherent strategy but we at least wrapping up deals. From early July onwards there have been few signs of intelligent thought behind our transfer dealings.

I believe Everton can crack the top 4/6 without massive investment. I just don't think we will do it with the current systems and personnel involved.

I know we are all upset (some more than others) with the ending to this window. However, the window has been a very good one for us.

1.   We got our business done early. We signed 2 players that I honestly donít think we would have if we didnít get our business done in good time. Pickford and Keane would have almost certainly gone for larger amounts and possibly to different clubs had we not stepped in when we did.

2.   GK sorted Ė this is now a position that is sorted for the next decade. He is without doubt going to be Englandís number 1 and looks an absolute steal.

3.   No position 10 sorted Ė The options we have now in this position are only going to increase the performance of the squad. Competition is healthy and although we donít have a recognised striker, I am sure this will get sorted in January (or at the worst the summer).

4.   We have spent money! It has taken a few years, but finally we are spending some decent dosh! Even though net spend is low, our planning was spot on, and we brought players in before funds were received for Rom.

5.    If you said pre-window, that we would have got in Rooney, Klaasen, Sigurdsson, Sandro, Keane, Pickford, and the only major out was Rom, then I would have snapped your hand off.

The biggest negatives of the window have to be Barkley rejecting a £35m move to Chelsea which will cost the club big time (unless he signs a new deal), Niasse still lingering around (another £7-£10m) after his deal collapsed, and the lack of a decent replacement for Rom.

99% of teams could always do with an upgrade to certain positions, and we are no different. We could do with a new CB, LB/CB cover, Winger and Striker, but this will come in time. Let Koeman and Walsh do their work over the next few months, and go and get the right people in January or next summer to move onwards and upwards.

Maybe you are looking for absolute perfection which doesn't exist in the real world. Would spending another £30m-40m on a panic buy like Raul Jiminez make you happier?

Im just dissapointed that we clearly knew for 12 whole months that Rom would be leaving and it appears we never had any sort of plan in place.

We where never going to get a like for like replacement but we clearly had nothing lined up in terms of at least some one proven or with pedigree.

My only thought is that Koeman has seen enough in DCL to suggest he is good enough and put faith in Sandro proving good enough, but then why would he sound off about wanting another forward in?

The system he plays needs a target man and we dont have one, he is gonna feel pretty aggrieved when he gets back I reckon.

Good window early on but really had to cap it by sorting the striker situation out.

Lack of pace too which I hope this Croation lad solves.

If you look at it as a whole we've done poorly by failing to replace Lukaku with anyone (not even with a donkey) and now having to play twice a week for 4 months with one senior left back. These 2 failures are not far short of disaster really, it makes it near on impossible for us to progress on from last season.

It isnt getting at Sandro, we all should understand he is 21 new into the country and had a couple of injuries which have stopped him from getting any fitness or rhythm.

But if you'd said in May/June to people we will replace Lukaku with Sandro and giving DCL a go people wouldnt have been happy with that. Everyone should still be happy with Sandro because at 5m it has the potential to be a really good deal but he will need time to adapt, settle and for us to see what he is capable of.

It's more that his touch hasnt been brilliant, he isnt a big presence and we havnt seen anything yet to suggest he can play the lone striker role for us and would find it easier to settle in and get involved in the game playing off a front line forward.

But ultimately if we are trying to try and get into the top 4 we have Rooney, DCL and Sandro as forwards to try and compete against people like Arsenal (ignoring their current meltdown) who can choose from Giroud, Lacazette, Sanchez, Welbeck and Walcott in the forward roles as an example. All the teams above us have proven they can score a lot of goals and the amount of goals they need to finish in the top 4.

Last year we got 62 league goals and that was with a striker who got 25 league goals. Towards the end of the season I said a few times I was ok with Rom going and thought we could score more goals by selling him and replacing him with someone who wouldnt score the same level of goals but would be a good focal point and help us be more consistent in our play by getting other players more chances, by allowing people like Klaassen to get in the box more often. When making that statement it was under the assumption we would bring in that kind of forward in addition to the types of players we have, without that player I just find it difficult to see how over 38 games we will score enough goals and ultimately win enough games especially away from home to try and overtake 1 or 2 of the teams above us let alone 3 that would be needed to try and finish in the top 4.

Not a Koeman fan no. He is a Moyes dressed up in Ancelotti clothes. He is a defensive Frank De Boer.

It's not a bad description that Con. To be fair we are still waiting to see what preferred style and formation we're going to be playing and he's been here over a year.

Firstly still trying and failing to do business as the window closes is not doing your business early

Secondly perfection is what PSG did is perfection. Expecting a reasonable replacement for the striker we sold for 90m isn't. Expecting some decent pace and width to be added isn't. Expecting us not to sign 3 number 10s all of which are worse than the number 10 we already had isn't.

Individually you can make an argument for all our signings being decent (though Sigurdssons price is ridiculous) as a group though?? Massive holes in our squad and 3 of a similar type signed. I think we fell well short of perfection

No need for that tone, you can discuss without coming across a complete dick.

Sandro from what I've seen of him is not an out and out striker, he comes deep to get the ball, he is a forward so will play across the front line. He is not someone who is going to stay in the box, there were a number of occasions in preseason where crosses were out into the box and he was standing on the edge of the area and not attacking the ball in the 6 yard box like a true cetnre forward does.

Also, if you look at his goals and chances from last season with Malaga, most were from long range or deep and were not typical centre forward goals, not many of goals were from getting in behind the defence like a true centre forward.

We did not replace Lukaku with a centre forward whos natural position is to play off the last man and to get in the box. Koeman has said we have needed this himself on numerous occasions this window and we haven't got it.

I'm sure we'll get by as we still have a very good squad, I'm also not saying that Sandro can't play there, he can and will probably get a decent amount of goals, but he obviously wasn't the intended solution.

But it is blatently clear that from Koeman's and the clubs point of view we have completely failed to get the a striker in that can play in the system that Koeman has built for over the summer.

The only other left back I can see on the books is Matt Foulds, he might be rubbing his hands together at the prospect of some game time, haven't a clue how good he is though.

In a season of upwards towards 60 games to go into it with one left back is pretty poor. Especially when that left back is 32 and has a history of ankle problems which you'd ideally want to protect him from.

Disappointing end to the transfer window which leaves us very short at left back and we were unable to bring in a target man striker who could have got a double figure tally of goals. If we had got those two areas covered plus offloaded Niasse and Barkley then I think it would have been an ideal transfer window.

On the plus side, I think our defence looks stronger with Keane and Pickford and we do have a wealth of attacking players that we can utilise. Hopefully Henry Onyekuru has a good loan spell at Anderlecht as he could take some of the goalscoring burden for us next season.

Bored at work so I've done the below (don't take too much notice of the order), if you look at it like that we have quite a lot of depth and quality apart from the obvious area. The only other left back I can see on the books is Matt Foulds, he might be rubbing his hands together at the prospect of some game time, haven't a clue how good he is though.

Martina played out there pre season. Didn't do too bad, although you wouldn't want him there too often.

Im struggling to see why we let Barry go as he could ad has played as CB and leftback, granted he isnt the quickest but Koeman must've been given assurance that we had someone for him to authorise this mopve?

Maybe Oumar might come good yet......genuinely.....
get him involved, we are paying him ffs, get him involved, earn his money and you never know.
Cant hurt to try like! Whats the point in letting him rot

As for Ross.....
I'd nearly terminate his contract now so we dont have to pay him for a few months
We will get nothing for him now anyway.
Let him sign for Tottenham and get blisters on his hole and end up and Newcastle this time next year getting fat and bald

You wouldn't really want Gareth Barry at left back though, he'd be skinned by my nan let alone a professional athlete.

A truly awful end to the transfer window. Stuck with Niasse, Mirallas, neither of who are likely to play again in the 1st team, Barkley more or less finished with us and going for little or nothing, and the permanently injured McCarthy. Seamus and Bolassie maybe back by Christmas. Last but not least no striker except a cheapo from Malaga who may or may not make the grade. Roll on January. Tighten your seatbelts between now and then and back the Blues!

I think we will all accept the fuck up over the next few days, (we have no other choice), but if Baines gets injured, or a straight red, against Spurs you can see the whole thing flare up again.

It's all a bit meh to me now, I've given this window enough energy. What's done, is done.

Just can't wait for the real football to be back, roll on to the 9th and a chance to show spuds what we think of them!

I agree with Robioto. We do have numbers to play up front and behind the striker, but we may lack the quality and impact that Lukaku brought to games.

On another note, the doing-away with the normal (fucking dreadful) general transfer window thread was extremely successful IMO

Nice effort. Shows we've actually got decent cover in most areas, just a bit weak up front (youth and bedding in could both solve that just about) and dangerously lacking at LB. Although, Martina can play there (I'm not saying he should, just that he technically could).

You know I was just thinking that. Its going to be like a derby isnt it. We will be right up for that, a way to show how far we have come against a now similar weighted opponent. Sigurdsson especially. Hopefully everyone is fit, as this now is a bit spicier :D

Aye a bit short at LB.

Rightly or wrongly, if I was in charge, I'd be playing Kenny at left back every fookin single youth game from now on.

He's a right back though?

Unless that's what you meant?

Post by: The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool on September 01, 2017, 08:25:53 PM
That's exactly what I meant. Rather than play Martina out of position without much game-time, I would start preparing Kenny now to play on his wrong foot - which is done quite often with the better full backs. Just in case Baines gets crocked.

If we lose that though (let's face it, not unlikely) it's going to be in serious meltdown territory on here.
Title: Re: Deadline day thread Summer '17
Post by: Lxxx on September 01, 2017, 08:33:50 PM
Or I'd sit down with Luke Garbutt, a natural left back and one who showed promise not so long ago, and tell him there is a potential chance to make a career here now so knuckle down and you'll get some game time in the cups first and see how we go.

Oh right.

Yes well I suppose given that he's 4th choice RB it's unlikely that this will happen!

Not really. Losing at home against your rival for a European place would rank higher than losing away at the current champions for instance.

I've seen both Foulds and Garbutt play this year and would put Garbutt ahead of Foulds on current form ONLY if someone can tell him to stop fucking about with his hair, all game he was running his hands through it etc. No one gives a fuck what you look like Luke lad but we do want you to concentrate and play decent togger

I would recommended anyone go on youtube and watch the Everton pre-season training drill videos just for a bit of a laugh at the players expense. In particular I thought of this from what you've just said Lincs. I've embedded one from when Stubbs was the coach and he shamelessly ribs any of his kids. Skip to 3 minutes to hear him with Garbutt ;)
