I don't give a fu** what anyone thinks, we (or Steve Walsh) needs to get a move on. He should have some targets from January and previous already sown up to an extent. At the end of the season I thought we needed a keeper, left back competition, right back competition, at least one centre back, an attacking midfielder and a couple of forwards. Now our best 2 offensive players are on the verge of leaving and nerd replacing big time, that makes 9 in total. We're basically fighting like fu** just to stay were we are! I thought we'd have had a couple agreed baring in mind we start so early also. We don't do big transfer business quickly and efficiently if history is anything to go by..... It'll have to be some shift in gear if we are going to surprise and excite everyone at the club as promised!

Go and have a smoke lad.

Not really an issue if we don't have a large net spend is it? It's the quality of our recruitment that counts and the big wedge we get from Lukaku will distort the figures, making it look like we've not done decent business when we probably will have expanded the squad massively.

I still think Keane will come here because all the other options for him seem to be dwindling and he's a regular starter here.

Over and above that I've no idea what business we'll do. Not even Rooney is nailed on really.

Costa to Atletico, can't play until January, so a cheeky six month loan to keep him fresh and fit.....

or any player that Atletico sign....

It's not a bad idea in principle. No footballer wants to be sat on his arse but you don't want to use up one of your loan quotas on a 5 month stint. Sandro on loan from Atletico for the season works for all parties.

That's actually a really good shout.

It's really not. Where do Atletico find 70m quid from if they're not selling Griezmann.

The initial players we were linked with have come to nothing, so far (Sandro, Sigurdsson, Rooney, Martina), we've had no movement on Barkley and our star striker is off, leaving an unproven 20 year old with only a handful of games under his belt as our only striker. I know it's still early but it all just feels so typically Everton.

Has sandro signed for atletico? I saw a rumour he was having a medical then nothing since. Is that deal done?

No idea mate but there's been nothing mentioning his name and Everton in the same sentence for a while.

You would think the c70m or so for Lukaku is in the bag then. I know we said we have money to spend but we still have to play within the FFP regulations.

I hope Moshiri has learnt from last time and isn't texting the bell end.

You could probably add another 15m or so in the kitty for James McCarthy as well as I would imagine half a dozen games a season again doesn't work when we have over 60 games to play this year.

Walsh has booked a personal trip to seal the Geri transfer so he can meet the wife out there and share a room on work expenses. We've all done it.

Makes a change seeing this much movement in mid-June as opposed to middle of August.

As if we're gonna have all our business done by the end of June. Absolutely mental scenes. Poor Steve Walsh hasn't a clue what day it is at the minute.

Fucking great this summer. Seems we'll just have everyone. Pinching everyone's best youngsters, spending decent amounts on quality. Hopefully getting sandro for a fraction of his true worth. Really enjoying it.

The rumours are that Keane will be finalised imminently too. I can foresee another 'two in 24 hours' confirmed again like last week, just for the PR effect. Good times. Even my mates who don't support us are texting me telling me how impressed they are with Everton so far this window.
