    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    He did almost man mark him out of the game though. it was crazy. One of the greatest players of all time, maybe even the greatest, couldn’t get a kick for 85 mins. He did an incredible job keeping him quiet. However, Messi only needs one chance, one slip, one view of goal and he did what he’s...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    well, I know a lot of people also agree with you and think he’s not very good. Not going to argue with that because I might get piled on. however, his performance in the home league cup semi against city really stands out for me. He was great that night. Proper battle with a top quality player...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    6. Signed for us in 2014. Either way it’s a long time. saying that he’s been on loan for the last 2 1/2 seasons. Played well for us at times.

    Marcel Brands

    To be fair Brands was hired as director of football on the 16th May 2018. Silva was hired on the 31st May 2018. 2 weeks later. Therefore Brands was Technically here before Marco and presumably agreed to the appointment of Silva as manager. However, given that Everton Had tried to get Silva...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    some of these players have been good. some of them still might come good. also you appear to have left out all his good signings. Also his policy of making space for youth players has had positive effects. I appreciate your stance of being on the fence, but maybe a balanced argument is...

    Transfer Rumour Gabriel (Lille)

    Very true. I wouldn’t be happy about us selling any of the players you mention above. I’d be gutted. having said that every club has their price. Richarlison is my current favorite, but if someone made an insanely high offer like 160mil (not going to happen) then it would be difficult to turn...

    Transfer Rumour Gabriel (Lille)

    To be fair they finished 2nd last season and 4th this season (Albeit in an incomplete league). That’s pretty decent for any French side that’s not PSG. also if you sell all your good players For financial reasons It’s probably difficult to sustain success. Take your point though.

    Gazza at Everton

    Perhaps you’re right. But... Youtube This : Ally McCoist tells funny story about Paul Gascoigne and two trout Watch it until the end. tell me you didn’t find that funny! Proper cheered me up during the early hard stages of lockdown.

    Marcel Brands

    In 6 seasons, 2013-14 - 218-2019. He played over 30 games every season apart from 1, where he played 26. You wouldn’t say that’s the form of an injury prone player would you? I think this just comes down to horrendous luck for both him and Everton. Maybe they did miss something in the...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    Thanks for the reply. Greatly appreciated. yes, I can totally see why that story (Everton scarf/football fan) would grate on you and other people. It would irritate me too if I’d seen it. On the subject of unfair Everton content. I’m sure there was an Everton game about 10-15 years back on...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    This seems to be a constant accusation towards the echo from Everton fans. From lots of people on lots of different formats of social media. Leads me to believe there must be something to it. However, I have to be honest I’ve never seen this bias myself. Admittedly, I don’t live on merseyside...

    sigurdsson v osman

    Both have done good things and bad things for Everton. last season Siggy had a better season than any of Osman’s individual seasons. But Osman has done more good things for Everton, albeit over a longer period of time. Ive read Osman’s book and he says that from 2005-2013 he was basically on...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    True, but I think the premier league/UEFA will have to relax FFP rules. I think they’ll do this because clubs will obviously have less money than they would’ve before the crises, plus they won’t want a transfer freeze. this will obviously give clubs with money/rich owners a chance to get ahead...
