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.

I'd cry if we went from Stones to Shawcross.

Shawcross for Stones?

Let's get Glen Whelan in to replace Barkley while we're at it.

What is people's obsession with Ryan Shawcross? Everything about him is totally average
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.

Yet sad to say two of them play in sides who defend better than we do.

Bit worried about the elmohamady rumours...firstly because I can actually believe it, and they have been doing the rounds for about 2 years, and finally because he's ANOTHER individual style right winger...
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

No. I had to check as I thought he did as well. Played for Sunderland and Hull in England. Sunderland loaned him out to Hull, just let that sink in, Sunderland loaned him out.

He was never that bad when i have seen him play. Staedy, unspectacular but can do a job. I think he would be bought as cover for Coleman if nothing else.

He's more of a right back these days, isn't he?

I'd have him on the cheap tbh.

Would be a very uninspiring, Wigan type signing though.

I would rather Byram, although he seems to be attracting a lot more attention lately.

Corrierre Dello Sport linking us with Balde Keita (of Lazio, and formerly another La Macia graduate) if we sell Kev. Maybe the Serie A experts can enlighten us as to his ability and potential?

As ever, the most important bit of information is that he's boss on FM.

Would he come here to play back up to Coleman?

By most accounts he's good enough to start in the prem already.

He's been playing on the wing all season anyway.

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.
