  1. Nothing wrong with Tarkowski's challenge. We would be livid if anything happened to Godfrey having done the same.
  2. It's not good enough but it's got nothing to do with how much possession we've had. We've not done enough with it because our midfield is nonexistent, as it usually is with 3 cb's out there. Rondon on for Keane please and get Gray in the middle of the pitch.
  3. Another name to keep an eye on for cover is Robbie Brady. He's a free agent. Hope we never need him but he's miles ahead of Delph or any other cover we have at the moment. I hate seeing CBs out at full back.
  4. What a dud this has turned into. A day full of anticipation and we're likely to only get Rondon in. Also been pretty boring throughout Europe.
  5. Guess at where we end up in a few hours: Maitland-Niles on loan and Rondon on a free. We find loans for Kenny and James. Swansea just sold their RB to Burnley so that could be a perfect fit for Kenny. James i'll guess Napoli, Galatasaray or Monaco. Pretty sure I'm correct in saying we have more time to loan Branthwaite and Gordon if we choose to.
  6. Got a lot more confidence in him than Kean. Whatever that's worth.
  7. We know Kenny is not the answer. We don't know if Maitland-Niles is. On a free that's enough for me to say go for it. We put our eggs in the Dumfries basket and I genuinely believe we were very close to finishing the deal before his agent (as any good agent would) told him to hold off until after the Euros to see what else might be out there. The what else turned out to be Inter and we were left at the altar. I want a new RB (love Seamus but it's time for him to be the cover) as much as anyone. Here's where I think I differ from most: I feel the overwhelming consensus is clubs should have a scouting list at least 5-6 names deep at every position. I've never subscribed to that. The fact is the premier league requires a standard most professional footballers can't handle and we need players who make us better and we're already a top half side (believe it or not) so I'm glad we're sticking to our first choice in terms of spending big money on a transfer. Some of our recent big signings were our top targets (and it turns out Walsh was largely terrible at spending big money) but my recollection is names like Ashley Williams, Schneiderlin, Bolasie, Klaasen, Tosun, and Iwobi were all 'panic' buys after we missed on other targets, and they ended costing us more than just the transfer fee and wage. Taking a few chances on loans leads to a more sustainable club in the long-term. It appears we're going to need a RB next year so selling Kenny and paying nothing for Maitland-Niles gets us started towards that goal.
  8. Agreed, and that's all we should expect at this point. Will take him awhile to get up to speed. Will be great to see him get through a full match.
  9. Haha more closely resembles a broken clock rather than a steaming pile.
  10. Looks like tix to the derby don't go on sale to members until November 1. Derby tix especially hard to get. They do limit to one per member. https://www.evertonfc.com/tickets/prices-seating-sale-dates You might be able to get 2 tickets through the official club resale site. I'm an international member already so if you don't want to pay for the membership let me know and I'll buy 2 tickets for you and you can send me the money via paypal/venmo.
  11. Also there's been a lot of doom and gloom on here recently and I'd just like to say cheer up...at least we're not Arsenal. That is a dumpster fire of truly epic proportion.
  12. Considering the relatively slow market thus far got a feeling deadline day is going to be crazier than normal with teams shipping players on loan left and right. We've got 5 or 6 who fit the mold assuming we can't sell them first.
  13. Educated guess based on the training photo is James, Kean, Gomes, Gbamin and Allan are the 5 in protocol. Pickford Coleman Godfrey Keane Digne Doucoure Delph(F***) Townsend Gray Richarlison DCL
  14. Inter seems the most likely destination but it's pretty clear he's leaving. Let's invest wisely, still PLENTY of time to improve the squad.
  15. PSG have to clear out the wage bill. I'd be all over Dagba and Draxler on loan.
  16. Nail on head that one. Describes exactly how I feel as well.
  17. No James, Kean, Allan, Gomes or Davies at training. Sadly Delph and Iwobi are there.
  18. Encouraged by the 3 signings for a net spend of 1.5 million. Whether we like it or not we have to assume we're done signing wingers so our only major hole left to fill is RB. While most of us expect Kean gone, he's the backup ST we need until he officially leaves. GK: Pickford Begovic J Virginia RB: Coleman Kenny CB: Godfrey Keane Mina Holgate Branthwaite LB: Digne Nkounkou CM: Allan Doucoure Delph Gomes Gbamin Davies Wingers: Richarlison Gray Iwobi Gordon Townsend No10: James Siggy ST: DCL Kean Tosun Perfect world: buy Dumfries or Aarons, buy Kouliabaly or Lenglet, buy McNeil or Saint-Maximin, buy backup ST. Sell Keane Delph Gomes Iwobi Kean Tosun. Loan J Virginia Kenny Branthwaite Gordon. Minimum: buy Dumfries or Aarons. Sell Delph Iwobi Tosun. Loan J Virginia Kenny Branthwaite Gordon.
  19. Been thinking about that last point a lot. Well said. Rafa may not have liked him when he was surrounded by class at Madrid but he’d have to be a blind squirrel to not see the gulf in class between him and any of other midfield options. Here’s to hoping he stays so Goodison can give him the love he deserves.
  20. There haven't been many big signings other than the free agents and Sancho at Utd so I'm not worried yet and willing to wait out the market, but by July 31 i'd like to see us make a lot of progress. SOLD: DELPH, IWOBI, Siggy, Tosun, Kean, Bernard IN: RB, Winger with some f***ing pace, striker
