    But again, that's quite literally his job. If he's so narrowly focused that he only has, say, five targets and if none of them are possible then that's it, write off the window, then he's useless. I understand not going for the £50m target now that'll be £80m "just because", but I can not...

    There's thousands upon thousands of footballers out there. If Brands can't find one "we want" for "the right price", given that's quite literally his job, then he should be shown the door.

    Everton rejects £85M Barca bid for Richarlison

    Would need to be closer to £120m to even start entertaining a sale.

    I think we'll bring in at least one.

    January Transfer Thread 2020

    Well that's the interesting thing for me. I think if we didn't get those results under Ferguson, we'd have spent big early in January as the last two games would have been absolutely must win to survive. But we didn't because the pressure was off. For me, it's another sign of the club settling...

    6 of our next 9 games are against top clubs. We needed momentum heading into the run-in to stand a chance. We had to win our last two games in my view. We'll miss Europe by a good 9-10 points now, minimum.

    January Transfer Thread 2020

    There's no point now getting wound up about the window. We don't gave a game until after it shuts and anyone coming in now will either be a very well considered signing or a panic buy. It'll be very easy to tell them apart. The season died a long time ago and the corpse was well and truly...

    Of course it was. Two wins over the last two games - very winnable games - and we're level with 5th with momentum. Instead, we went into this month with Schneiderlin and Sigurdsson as a midfield two. Opportunity gone.

    To be fair I'd be less inclined to be annoyed by signing no one if the alternative is bringing in obvious crap like Bolasie again.

    It was a possibility prior to the last two games. The league is wide open. We needed to win them both to realistically have a go, but we didn't reinforce that midfield in time to do so. The opportunity has now gone.

    No meltdown from me, just mild frustration. I'm tired of seeing missed opportunities to push on.

    Rojo himself confirmed we were in for him.

    Transfer Rumour Matías Vecino

    Seen him play a few times. Reminded me of Darron Gibson weirdly enough, but not made of glass and crashing cars when drunk.

    Marcel Brands

    We haven't got a game until after the deadline, so it gives Brands every excuse to do what is fast becoming his usual - go to the deadline and then bring in anyone who's available like Marcos Rojo. His actions aren't those of someone with a plan - it's the action of someone hoping for the best...
