Evertonian in NC

I would sell Mirallas if it meant buying a keeper.  Otherwise, I am fine standing pat.

Wow. I genuinely forgot we had McGeady on the books.

That's bad.

Anyone think Chelsea might come in for Stones again? Maybe even Lukaku

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. 

I expect to be disappointed on both fronts.

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.

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.

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.

Will they get a game though?

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.

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.

Think there's room to let one or tow players go without replacing them.
