    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    He already knows, thats why we actually have a chance. To good talent evaluators it IS easy. It takes a lot of work, but seems obvious which players have the best chances of making it. Thats why some consistently crank out talent, and others just flounder year in and year out. Thats why we...

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    A player like De Ligt can tell you how important early talent evaluation is. Its so often that a player is available for 15 million, and then just 1 year later hes worth 30 million, 40 million, 50 million. You can turn any team into a powerhouse by getting in a year early on the right players.

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    I was really hoping the recent matches meant Silva had turned the corner after the disastrous mid season. The problem wasnt just losing to a bad team. The problem was getting thoroughly dominated by a team that had gone 1-12 in its past 13 matches. How can you ever trust this guy to get you...

    Never heard of him. Is that why you hate Brands, he didnt sign your precious Occam fellow?

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Yes, I certainly think we can actually get more than 70 mill from sales. But I think we've got replacements already on hand for the likes of Morgs, theres rubbish bins everywhere. Getting a player on loan from the likes of Barcelona or Bayern, and then one on a free is what really frees up...

    Match Thread Fulham v Everton; Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    They certainly havent been terrible each week, but losing 12 of 13 is kind of amazingly bad. I like our chances to finish out strong, I think my main concern is a slip up against the likes of Palace.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    7m for all except for Niasse, he brings in the princely sum of 63 million due to a poorly worded email on his lost fortune for a willing buyer. Um........I dont think you understand what the world profit means.... Bolasie, Tosun, and Snides alone cost us 70 million. At that price we are...

    RB Digne cost that much, so seems his twin LBDigne would cost that much.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    My 2019 Plan for FC Sexy: Sell Bolasie, Schneiderlin, Besic, Onyekuru, Tosun, Niasse and a few others for 70 million, save wages as well. Buy Gomes on a permanent for 25 million, buy RBDigne for 18 million, buy top Striker for 45 million for a total net spend of 88 million. Then, loan a CB...

    Match Thread Fulham v Everton; Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    If this is typical Everton, we will look terrible and draw 1-1. That said, they are truly terrible, so we SHOULD win like 4-0.

    Um, how many games do you think they usually win? Because it seems like you think they are Man City, instead of averaging 1.4ppg. That means on average two wins and a draw in their last 5 matches. Granted, one team will overperform and one will underperform, but If Watford beat Man City, or...

    23 shots against Arsenal, thats a little insane. Also, only scoring one, by your CB. Fantastic performance today, because this is Everton, I fully expect a letdown against Fulham....but maybe it continues?

    Zonal marking ..

    Honestly dont know if its still zonal or not, since we stopped conceding stopped paying attention to it. They rarely disect plays where a player just cleanly heads away.

    Richy has done good to get in behind a couple of times, but done a very poor job picking out multiple open men. Should be 2-0 with a decent pass in a couple of cases.

    The thing is though, if we sign a new RB, new CM, CB, and new striker, we could ship out 12 players and still have a backup squad of Virginia, Coleman, New CB, Mina, LBBackup, McCarthy, Davies, Lookman Vlasic Onyekuru DCL. And they are all better than the likes of Niase, Mirallas, Bolasie, etc.

    Seventh Place

    Absolutely we should want to be in Europe. First, at the least its valuable experience for our fringe players, those that dont get enough playing time. Second, maybe most importantly, its how you attract the best players. We will lose out on players that would make us better just because we...

    Marcel Brands

    Whats really scary? If Brands identifies another Digne for the RB role, and another Richarlison, except a striker, and 1 more loan move equal to Gomes, in just over a season he will have transformed this team into a very dangerous one AND on a budget we can meet. Pickford Digne2 Keane, Mina...

    Marcel Brands

    Dave is very upset at our DOF being so good at his job he would be able to sell the players hes purchased for double their fees the next season. Bothers him mightily we have someone so competent.......or more likely its how much the missus has taken to Brands.

    Marcel Brands

    Might be better if you were a bit more subtle and let the worlds best scouting department sell it for you? By that I mean loudly play youtube videos of him and declare every 5 minutes just how great a striker this Haller fellow is. Within the hour he will call up one of his scouts and demand...
