    Ademola Lookman

    Didn't think he was all that bad. Not good, but not bad. Saw him get back and help out a few times (got him a cheer at one point), a long way from Richarlison level but still. Agree on the width part, was a bit surprising given he's apparently right footed.

    Sandro Ramirez

    Ah, I see! Fair play, carry on then... ...was more of a dire needs scenario, would much rather try youth

    Sandro Ramirez

    Can't buy our way to the top, we need to develop players. We could keep average players for bench cover, or we can provide opportunities for young talent to rise the challenge.

    Keep 4 (Lookman) and use the u23's/u18's as required/warranted. Brands wants 1st team avenues for youth players, keeping the squad lean provides that. We haven't got any international comps to worry about and Calvert-Lewin/Gylfi/Dowell can all fill in as required (till Jan at least).

    Ademola Lookman

    Could have done that directly/in person Haf. No need for that to play out on social media, and no reason for us to assume some slight/callous act on his behalf (not assuming you are). He may well prefer to move and that's his prerogative. Although I think that the Leipzig post could very easily just be the kid taking an interest in a team and player he played for/with. Not everyone's a mischievous Mastermind (footballers less likely than most), and he is still just a 20 year old kid. He's currently an Everton player, and welcome in my book. If he goes, I assume we'll get a fair price and wish him good luck. Then continue to cheer on Everton's upward trajectory.

    Hold out unless they meet the valuation. Set a precedent, or keep a talented player. If they started at 12 and have risen to 25, they'll pay 28/30.

    Man of the match @ Wolves

    Agreed. Think Digne will be a very good replacement and love that Baines is rising to the challenge.

    Richarlison obviously, but thought Baines was also very good. Defense in general was pretty solid. Might not be a popular opinion but I thought Schneiderlin played a decent game, the best I'd seen from him in awhile.

    Summer Transfer Window 2018

    As much as I hate the snide prick, he's at least partly right about the need to finish off the good work. Depending on where Marco wants the additions playing...Need to find quality/1st division loan moves for Joe Williams, Kieran Dowell (depending on Bernard's position), Tom Davies, Nikola Vlasic (is CSKA loan/sale?). Pennington will go on loan to championship, if/once Zouma is confirmed. Bolasie just needs to go...to whoever will take him. One of Besic/Schneiderlin/Gana should probably be sold, although then maybe want Williams to stick around as emergency cover. Not really sure who would provide decent cover from u23's.

    Yannick Bolasie

    Any French clubs with enough coin (and not enough sense) to buy him? He could go alright there.
  11. DownUnderToff

    Kurt Zouma

    Hope this one goes through, looks like he'd do well covering back for Mina/Keane. Looks big, quick, and there's a little "no nonsense" about him.
  12. DownUnderToff

    Yerry Mina

    Issa Diop will be the one we missed IMO. Young, big, strong, fast, and relatively cheap.

    Rumours Without A Link

    Actually think he'd be a decent shout. Not the front line CB we're after, but a decent #3/#4 and free at that. Think he'd surprise and push his way forward, but he'll go to QPR and do well there.

    Marcos Rojo

    Absolute rubbish that we'd pay £30m and make this truck our highest paid player. Shouldn't deal with Utd at all, unless it's for Martial or Rashford.

    Denis Zakaria

    Yes please, good replacement for Schneiderlin.
