    2019/20 Djibril Sidibe

    At this point I think its a no-go on Sidibe. When he doesnt have to defend much against inferior opposition he mostly does fine, but hes glaring when asked to play the better teams, and if we are to improve our position we need to start beating them with some regularity. We cant do that with...

    Summer 2020 transfer window

    Once someone pays sponsorship money, it's income, and what Everton chose to do with it afterwords is entirely up to them. It doesnt matter what someone thinks it may or may not be used for in the future, sponsorship income is sponsorship income. Otherwise you would just say the 30 million is...

    Tell me, how much did we spend on the planning etc for KD and DK? Was it 10 million?

    DAVE! We were worried there would be no one to spout repetitive lies about it, but thankfully those fears are assuaged! I know your first reponse to hearing the news was to give up and drown yourself in a weeklong bender, but Im proud to now see you've managed to shake your self off, stumble...

    New CB Signing: Gabriel (Lille)

    It really revolves around two things. 1. Most top athletes in the country go to other sports because they pay much better. Great basketball players make 20 million per year, average baseball players make 10-15 million per year, good football players do the same. Most countries have 1-2...

    New CB Signing: Gabriel (Lille)

    Sweet, all we need now are rumors of a good CM, top RWer and RB and we will have a solidly rumored squad for next season.

    Everton Youth Teams Thread

    With Simms I would expect hes either sent out on loan this coming season, or kept for 1 more solely to work on the mental aspects and his touch, with the plan to send him out on loan the next one. Players like Mount and Abraham for Chelsea basically went from U-18, to U-23 for one season, went...

    We've gone from people crying out that hes not coming, to crying out that hes too involved.

    2019/20 Djibril Sidibe

    I think Sidibe is worth a spot, and will be purchased not simply because of his RB play, but because he can play at RM/RW. His ability to fill in at multiple positoons makes him more valuable compared to his price, and I think why they pull the trigger. Right now we dont have 3 RM/RWs, we have...

    Usmanov

    The reason City got banned wasnt even that they inflated deals beyond their fair market value. The reason they got banned is they lied about what the actual deals were. In other words, they said "we received 60 million in this inflated deal" and they actually only received 50 million when the...

    Europa League

    Villa havent won the cup. If they did, yes, they would have anyway. If Man City win it, and the ban is upheld, that means 6th and 7th now are EL spots, and potentially 8th depending on the other cup winner.

    Match Thread Arsenal v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Just realized that Arsenal have only 6 wins out of 26 matches. Granted, they have only lost 6, but only the two teams at the bottom of the table have less wins.
