Farhad Moshiri, Alisher Usmanov, Cenk Tosun, Muhamed Besic, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Ademola Lookman, Oumar Niasse, David Henen, Barack Hussein Obama, Confucius... Everton Muslims growing stronger...

Should have just gone for Dembele and Tierney for 50 million. Would at least fix two problems and both would be at a decent level relatively quickly.

It's a while since a striker came down from Scotland and made an impact in the English League.
Something clever written by someone else.

Bring in Dembele from Celtic.  Pace, strong. Give them Mirallas as part of the deal.

This team finished comfortably 7th last season, and we've lost 1 player. I have complete faith that a new manager can get us drilled, instil some confidence and get us playing again, The squad has been improved. Stop losing your heads.
I think we don't realise how good Barry has been for us tho. But if Schneiderlin can get his shit together then we should be ok. Yes we need striker but hopefully we can steady the ship until Jan. Get a striker in to play with Oumar and we'll be ok. I'd be playing the majority of last seasons players so the more familiar they are with each other the better we'll be.

Forgot we had Kone last season.

He'd be straight in the first team for us right now.

Yeah the striker being kept out the side by Leigh Griffiths will solve our problems.

Think he was injured for the first couple of months of the season? Scored 5 in his last 5 and bagged a hat trick for France U21's this evening.

He can definitely score goals but I'm surprised if he was that good there wasn't more interest in him in the summer but like most things it's difficult to gauge a player in the SPFL. At the top level, he didn't do anything standout against Bayern but then it was always going to be hard against them.

Yeah, I don't think even in today's inflated market they were going to get anything like that for a 20/21 year old playing in Scotland.
