have looked at many sites but not seen any hint of that.
We’ll be saving loads on wages though so that stuff takes care of itself.That leave less then 35 mil if we where to sell Pickford for 70 and buy someone for 30 once you account for wages and agent fees and signing on bonus for the keeper on a free.
Unless we use JV as number 1 and get a back up
Well I never thought at loking at that rag. Cheers.
My read of it at the moment is that the whole thing is in flux mate. Two things had me optimistic about about this window and our ability to spend, the 30mill naming rights investment from USM and we can capitilise 43 million of our costs on BMD - once planning permission is approved.True mate however sponserships etc are slowly increasing which will always keep us slightly ahead and once BMD is sorted thats additional revenue when we get the naming rights.
In short im not worrying too much as people have flapped the past 2 seasons saying we wont spend and we have done.
What we do need to do is start being ruthless- just because players like Walcott/Bernard play "ok" for us shouldn't mean they get a free pass when they are earning the sort of money that the quality of player of Richarlison should be earning.
If we could sell say Bernard for £15 million, get his £120k+ a week off the books and bring in a player for £20-25 million on say 80k a week who can contribute 7-8 more goals and assists a season long term we benefit both on and off the field.
He's been there for 4 full seasons, finishing in the top 4 every time, winning the CL and reaching 2 other European finals, and blowing transfer records left right and centre. Calling it a slow build is pushing it to the extreme.Klopp had 4 years after inheriting a squad that had challenged for the title until he got success (If I out aside my conspiracy theories for a while on how he achieved it). But the point stands that it took a long time of slow building piece by piece. Brands inherited a truly terrible squad in 17/18 with only one decent asset (Gueye) and some unproven youngsters (Holgate and DCL) as they only bright spots at all. If we gave Ancelloti and Brands 4 seasons of continuous investment then I would guarantee we’d be miles ahead of where we are now. It’s a process and as long as the quality of the squad keeps increasing that’s all I care about and from my point of view the squad has improved hugely since Brands came in with us now having far better players on the pitch. We just need to keep going in the right direction.
I can't accept that mate. It would basically mean that we are back to Kenwright levels of austerity. Sell to Buy!Not to be a wet blanket, but i'm not so sure they are "available" wages to be redistributed mate.
The club have been in urgent need to bring the wage bill down for a while.
Behind the scenes footage of Everton trying to get Real Valladolid to take Sandro for the rest of the season.Everton are yet to reach an agreement with Real Valladolid for striker Sandro Ramírez to extend his loan until the end of the season. That’s what El Desmarque Valladolid report today, explaining that an agreement will have to be reached by Tuesday if the striker is to finish the campaign as...sportwitness.co.uk
Still havent extended Sandro... Not good for us..
I don't think CA will want to sell him but it would give a lot of freedom in the transfer market.....Chelsea linked with Pickford, I wonder if Brands thinks he’s expendable.
