    Emiliano Sala

    Brands's modus operandi doesn't really seem to include signing players at their peak. A 28-year player is at his peak. So I doubt this rumour.

    Marko Arnautovic

    Here's a tip: Every time we are linked to a player ask yourself if this player fits the profile Brands himself has said he is after. In Arnautovic's case the answer is an empathic NO. These are just rehashed rumours from before Arnautovic moved to WHU. We were linked back then to him as well.
  3. How come? Because one is from Croatia and one from Serbia? One played in the Croatian league while the other plays in Portugal? Because Vlasic is four inches taller? Because Vlasic is primarly an AMC while this guy is a winger (Vlasic can play on the wing & Zivkovic in the centre but it's not their best position)?

    Maxi Gomez

    So we are not even linked to this guy if I read that right. It's just the writer thinking we should be.

    Yerry Mina

    Mina and Keane should start to form a partnership which is why they should start next game as well. And while Mina had a few dodgy moments in his first game in about five months his passing was very good.

    Marcel Brands (DoF)

    Lozano seems a winner. You can never have too many of those. But isn'tt he predominantly a left winger?
  7. Yes, in Englad the life of a stadium is calculated in centuries, not years like in the US.

    Marco Silva (manager)

    Tosun has been first choice striker and our game improved when he came on on Saturday. And if this wasn't a game to bleed in Bernard then when should he? And I assume we should just ditch Dowell and Lookman. If they shouldn't be given games at all why keep them?

    Tom Davies

    Beni is the one who might need to be loaned out if anyone.

    André Gomes

    Brands said Gomes was too expensive to buy and it took some convincing before Barca allowed a loan.
  11. At least half the clubs would go bust. And it wouldn't matter if the stadium is 55k or 60k, Everton would go bankrupt paying the salaries and outstanding payments for player purchases. There's no way the club could survive about debt in the region of 200 million or more and with revenue dropping 80%. The club couldn't even pay the stadium loans. And as per rules, bankrupt clubs would be relegated. So if that was to happen we'd be playing in the lower levels on a stadium not owned by the club.
  12. The biggest income I believe comes from increased number of executive boxes. GP has a ridiculously small amount of them. New stadium should also increase matchday sales of other things (refreshments, food, merchandise). And it should improve sponsorship deals. The extra money from the regular seats is really not that much in the grand scheme of things. If you get 10,000 extra seats sold out every week @25 pounds a pop, that's 250,000 per match, or in the range of 5 million per year. With the next TV deal Everton's revenue will be close to 200 million, so it would mean an increase of about 3%, say 4% including all other income from those fans. So while it's a nice thing to have it would mean the club can pay the wages for one star player more. This is also why financially the gains from a 60k stadium as opposed to a 55k stadium is not very much. It would however increase build costs, possibly require more policing etc. Just to break even would require those extra 5k seats should be sold out for most games for the next 40 years.

    New Ownership Incoming?

    Moshiri got his money from Usmanov.
  14. Does Burns actually ever talk about the players, the team, the manager or anything else actually concerns football?
  15. Anyone else not surprised Burns is talking through his arse again?
