    Summer Transfer Window

    emiliana sala for nantes? he's scoring at will there. so is nicholas pepe for lille. that league doesn't translate well in terms of strikers (thauvin at newcastle) sadly, but in Brands we trust so let's hope so.

    André Gomes

    Mina seems like he's the life of the clubhouse. Jovial kinda guy everybody loves.

    I don’t know why they don’t ban them. Why would you pay money to go watch a match obstructed by flags? You can’t bring that stuff into stadiums in America. Small signs but they aren’t obstructing views.

    Haha ok, you can’t put it into words, and when you do and it’s refuted it’s the old you get it or don’t.

    Bolasie niasse Schneiderlin all 29 going on 30, I don’t think we will get much for them. Maybe 8-10m a pop. Tosun let’s hope we can get 20m for him. That’s 50m right there. Sell McCarthy another 12m or so. That should be Gomes and cover his wages. Transfer kitty to spend on rashford or icardi and then a RB. That’s only 3 players in as lots out. I think that would be enough.

    i get it completely, it doesn't take a guy who's been at the club for a long time to be the old guard. gylfi has proven on and off the pitch for years in this league he is a top player and professional. the others respect that, you don't need to be an academy boy to show that. that's where i think this whole hero worship goes south, no need for jags and baines to stay on to espouse the values of everton, we have a manager and players he likes and respects to do that. not to mention the things the manager wants for team spirit and the values he cherishes change from manager to manager. if we still had moyes then sure keep hibbo and distin and jags and baines around. but 4 managers later and they don't know what marco wants anymore than Digne who was just signed. Juve, PSG, dortmund, barca all jettison their aging players and they don't seem to lack team spirit and they keep winning. maybe we should take a page from there book, maybe your definition of old guard is what's holding us back.

    i know exactly what you are saying and i agree with you, but i don't agree on who those players are. the old guard is not jags and baines as they are well beyond the team spirit and being a scholes and keeping the players in line. jags moreso than baines. the old guard is now players like coleman and gylfi. they are the 30+ veterans who show with hard work and help to keep the guys in line, coincidently (not really) they are the captains usually. they are the veterans and Marco's leaders on and off the pitch. i could see a baines 1 or 2 year deal because he's 3 years younger than jags, but jags is 36 there would be no reason (for me) to re-sign him.

    great stuff mike. i really do prefer your parlimentary system. The US seems to as well since every government it topples is replaced with one (see iraq, etc).

    Summer Transfer Window

    Immobile or Icardi yeah now we are talking. a couple sleeper picks would be Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo, Santi Mina from Valencia. I'd take Rashford from United as well.

    thanks mike. i took one of those tests of which party are you and i'm SNP and then Green. Does SNP only garner votes from Scots? Seems like they are more left of the Labour party, i guess the Scottish in their title is what holds them back?
  12. markjazzbassist


    why is labour a Leave party? i would think the left would be remain.

    i believe we lose both baines and jags this summer due to contract. i don't think it will have much of an effect to be honest.

    Cenk Tosun

    i think he deserves another game or two as well to start and see what happens, if he still doesn't put it together then i would sell him in january and recoup while we can.
