  1. Bingo. He could not play a game this season and we could still profit a minimum of 5m off him next summer if he wants to leave.
  2. This is West Ham and Newcastle written all over it, not us...hopefully. I'll take West Ham since they are likely to pay higher wages and Arnautovic will want to the China cash.
  3. IN: Lossl OUT: LOAN IN: LOAN OUT: YOUTH: Sebastian Kristensen YOUTH pro deals: Ryan Astley, Kyle John, Anthony Gordon, Ellis Simms, Joe Anderson, Einar Iversen CONTRACT EXT: Davies Out of contract: Jags, Baines, A Williams, Pennington, Dowell, Connolly, Hewelt, JHilton, Foulds, Ouzounidis, Charsley, Lavery, Mathis, Mampala, Sambou
  4. Come on Everton. Give us something! Transfer in or out, new kit, summer friendly...this is agony.
  5. We're nearly unanimous in feeling anything less than top 6 in 19/20 is a disappointment. Which we have every right to feel. So...what is the path to getting there? City - nailed on top 6 unless Guardiola leaves. Even if that did happen got to be 95% they finish top 6. Liverpool - pains to say but again nailed on top 6 if Klopp and Salah stay. Even if they both leave it still has to be 90% they finish top 6. Spurs - could only fall to 7th if Poch leaves That leaves Chelsea, Arsenal, Man Utd: Chelsea have the transfer ban and look like losing Hazard. Arsenal should strengthen an already good squad. Man Utd likely to spend big this summer. Arsenal look the strongest there so looks like we'd have to compete with them if we want 4th while Chelsea and Man Utd are competition for 5/6. The other thing that needs consideration/watching over the summer is who else outside the top 6 has our aspirations. Wolves and Leicester look strong competition. What do you think blues?
  6. Saw highlights to Palace - Bournemouth. Palace's home kit for next year is absolutely spectacular. Easily best one released so far. Hopefully Umbro and Everton can compete with that.

  8. Not to derail this lovely bickering, I'm curious what folks think is the probability (%) Gana is an Everton player when the summer transfer window closes. FWIW I'd put it at 40%. I'm not so much worried about replacing his exact skills, more so he will be sold late on to a desperate club and we'll be left out in the cold for a replacement. Brands has known since January this could be coming so hopefully he's prepared.
  9. Absolutely. Probably the most vocal Schneiderlin-hater on here, but he has been great recently. Full credit to Morgan and Marco.
  10. This year's home shirt is my favorite since 08-09. Absolutely loved this one and will miss it. I have faith in Umbro to produce another good one. They've done a good to great job these last 5 years.
  11. Seriously. Need some kit speculation and more info on summer friendlies. Suppose at this point they aren't coming to the States.

  13. Must give credit to team for turning this picture around in recent weeks. 11-12: 3-1-8 10pts; 12-13: 3-6-3 15pts; 13-14: 4-3-5 15pts; 14-15: 1-4-7 7pts; 15-16: 1-5-6 8pts; 16-17: 2-4-6 10pts; 17-18 0-4-8 4pts; 18-19 3-2-6 10pts Utd 5-3-9 18pts; City 3-5-8 14pts; Chelsea 4-3-9 15pts; Spurs 2-5-8 11pts; Arsenal 3-4-9 13pts; Shite 0-9-7 9pts Last time we beat each team in the league: Utd - April 26 2015 UPDATE: APRIL 21 2019 City - January 15 2017 Chelsea - September 12 2015 UPDATE: MARCH 17 2019 Arsenal - December 13 2016 UPDATE: APRIL 7 2019 Spurs - December 9 2012 Shite - October 17 2010 Last time we beat a top 6 team away: December 4 2013 Record since 11-12 in games against top 6 away: 1 - 15 - 32
  14. Sorry to start a new thread, this question was sprinkled into a few other threads but couldn't find a logical place to weave this in. Took a look at PL clubs who qualified for Europa League (current format started in 09-10) in lowest qualifying round: 09-10 Liverpool 7th - finished 6th in 10-11 10-11 Stoke 14th* - finished 13th in 11-12 11-12 Liverpool 7th - finished 8th in 12-13 12-13 Swansea 12th* - finished 9th in 13-14 13-14 Hull 16th* - finished relegated in 14-15 14-15 Southampton 7th - finished 6th in 15-16 15-16 West Ham 7th - finished 11th in 16-17 16-17 Everton 7th - finished 8th in 17-18 17-18 Burnely 7th - finished between 13th and 16th this year. *There were a few odd years, mostly due to FA/Carabao cup performances and fair play, where teams that didn't finish 7th still qualified for Europa. FWIW we have competed in the Europa League three times (09/10, 14/15, 17/18) we have finished 8th, 11th, 8th in the PL table those years. The stats above are just for reference, normally I'd say absolutely want Europa but I just have a feeling this year isn'tt one where it would help us. We've got a real opportunity next year to strengthen in 2-3 areas, shrink the squad, be consistent and cohesive and make a run at 4th. Europa could derail most of that. I'm in the camp with those who prefer 8th.
  15. "If Everton were a boxer, we’d be talking about their footwork rather than their raw punching power, and that’s a sign of improving health." That line is absolute gold. We'll meet our top 4 and trophy goals as our proverbial footwork improves. We can't really on punching power to be successful which is what we tried to do up until Brands' showed up and had a brilliant summer.
  16. This summer is going to be fascinating! From an outgoing perspective what is realistic for Marcel? Out of contract: Jags, Baines, Ashley Williams?, Callum Connolly?, Kieran Dowell?, M Hewelt? Returning to parent clubs: Gomes, Zouma Dead wood: Schneiderlin, Pennington, Bolasie, Sandro, Cuco, Niasse, Garbutt, Mirallas, Tarashaj Real question marks: Stek, Walcott, Tosun, McCarthy, Besic, Vlasic, J Williams, Beni If you remove out of contract, returning to parent clubs and dead wood you are left with: GK: Pickford, Stek, J Virginia LB: Digne, A Robinson CB: Keane, Mina, Holgate RB: Coleman, Kenny CM: Gana, Davies, McCarthy, Besic, J Williams, Beni W: Richarlison, Bernard, Walcott, Lookman, Onyekuru AM: Siggy, Vlasic, Dowell ST: DCL, Tosun
  17. Sort of off-topic but perhaps Walsh wasn't that bad? Good Gana, Lookman, DCL, Pickford, Keane, Gylfi, Vlasic, Rooney Indifferent Stek, Valencia, Mangala, Martina, Walcott, Tosun Bad Williams, Schneiderlin, Bolasie, Klaassen I said Vlasic good because we're going to sell him for more than we bought him for. Walcott and Tosun indifferent because we can probably get back a decent chunk of the transfer fees in transfers and they have played well enough to justify the difference. And i really don't like Walcott.
