    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...

    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 (Sunday 23 February 16:30)

    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.

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    I think what we all saw last season was he was really terrible, 95% of the time, but would save it with a single strike of the ball once every 3 games. He wasnt good then, but you felt you couldnt say that because he was still scoring. Now hes playing the same way he was last season, just...

    Yeah we are going to pretend that wasnt Pickfords fault on an easy shot.

    Europa League

    I suspect most of the replies about not wanting Europe are actually not about whether it will effect our results, but about preempting disappointment with "well, we didn't want to be there anyway! Yeah, that's it!"

    I had no dislike for him until he refused to go play anywhere, over and over again.

    Everton rejects £85M Barca bid for Richarlison

    The real reason we rejected Barca's offer was because we are holding out for that inevitable Sheffield United bid. Waiting for the big fish to finally get involved

    2019/20 Richarlison

    Richarlison is just dying to go to Sheff U. I mean Barcelona is one thing, but a team that just made it and is scoring 1.5 ppm is a dream isnt it?

    2019/20 Tom Davies

    Everytime I see an update here, I hope he is sold. Its always disappointing.... I mean, the one hope for him is that he gets so incredible at his positioning and passing that he overcomes his limitations, but I honestly would be shocked to see him come to anything. DCL and Holgate always had...

    Summer 2020 transfer window

    I love the constant fume about something that hasnt happened yet. Being from the states, its crazy to see how papers there just make up stories by the thousands and you all are just okay with it. The first window I kept wondering how all of these "sure" deals werent going through. Then once I...

    Where will we finish?

    But the table is based on math. You are ranked according to the number of points you end up with, not according to the woulda/coulda/shoulda's and speculation. 5th place right now is 1.5 ppm over the past 26 matches. If we get 1.5ppm over our next 4 matches, our only difficult stretch left...

    Where will we finish?

    So, if we were to get 3 points from 2, or 1.5 ppm, it would show we will drop spots, despite the fact that 1.5ppm is good enough for 5th right now? I dont get people sometimes.

    Pickfords even crazier than we thought, hes taken to fighting on internet forums

    Summer 2020 transfer window

    Well, for all the usual crowd who spent the whole winter window saying the likes of Emre Can werent good enough for us, go check out the goal he just scored for Dortmund. Despite that, I look forward to this thread being 6 months of wrongly criticizing good players for not being as good as you...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    A win in any of the next two would be huge, as they will be 6 point matches, against two of the teams we are competing for 7th with.

    2019/20 Richarlison

    The difference between true top talent and just average premier league players is the ability to just create goals. He does that on a regular basis, and creates points where they didnt exist. That is so hard to replace and makes a managers job much easier.
