  1. No mate, your fine…. Mine is gone!
  2. No idea where my head is…. It’s Saturday haha
  3. Sorry tomorrow night. Man U friendly i think.
  4. Anyone know if we have Dom available for tonight’s friendly?
  5. Bailey has lots of interesting points to discuss… we could be here for another 10 pages!
  6. That is true… we should make this whole thread about Bailey and keep it going 😉 No idea if he is a good player, but he would make a great Stato!
  7. So…. We’re still not buying this guy then?
  8. Typical TT, we comment more on transfers we’ve missed than any others haha!
  9. To be fair I haven’t been taking too much notice of other teams, so not sure how they have strengthened. What I would say though, is they aren’t buying top four players. They are looking in the same markets as us. Although they are buying from that market, where we are just browsing!
  10. Ye I agree, 2/3 that can slot into the team and make a difference would be massive for us. Sorry I misunderstood. Thought you looking for major changes. 50+m mark. But totally agree a few first team signings are needed to compete.
  11. Watching him I have been surprised. The speed of his feet at times is something no other player in our team has got. Your’e spot on with his head. If he can be coached right, we may have a bargain on our hands.
  12. We need our players to perform. We don’t need major signings. We need a couple of strengtheners, but we don’t need a massive squad overhaul. A couple of first team players and suddenly were a different team. Ok, we’re not going to be challenging for the top four, but I do find this fighting for relegation talk a bit ridiculous. Other teams moving away from us for example. So a Leon Bailey for Grealish is a good swap? Of course it isn’t. Villa will be weaker for it. There’s a reason Man City are going for Grealish and not Bailey. Grealish is a top player, Bailey is a mid table player.
  13. Good price for someone of his age and nothing left on his contract.
  14. Haha not to far wrong, just no hairs on legs from wearing shinnys my whole life haha!
  15. I don’t think it’s anywhere near as bad as you think. Goalkeeper cover, which was needed. winger that can cross, which we were desperate for. An option for a 10 that was fast and tricky, and can also easily play on a wing. I honestly don’t think we’re that far away. As for Bailey. Is he any good?
  16. Watching these matches, there a few things I have to admit. Gray looks to have great fast feet. And after thinking he had no end product, he has set up numerous chances and attacking opportunities. Townsend is a proper winger, good old fashioned winger. He actually has pace to. Gbamin can be a monster, but really needs to get his pace up. Not just running, but speed of thought on the ball. Iwobi has looked good! Seems faster, more direct, and has such a good turn on him. Kenny is like a cheap version of Hibbert. Gordon is showing promise again. Is this because he is concentrating on attacking more? Broadhead can be a good option on the bench. Decent pace, tricky, and strong.
  17. I’m lost. Feels like a lot of fans want us to be boring old Everton again. We finally get a player that we can truly be excited about in the last third…….. and we don’t want him because he can’t defend! 🙄
  18. He is a very passionate player and this sometimes boils over in his attitude. But one thing I would say is that he always gives his all on the pitch. I honestly don’t think we can get the money to make it worth losing him. Better to keep him and use him to help build up our profile.
  19. Joe Anderson. Come through the youth system. He is nowhere near the first team yet though, but does look promising. Hate using that word these days… it’s like a curse!
  20. DCL brushed the question off when asked about it. I watched the whole interview, and he pointed out that he was concentrating on England and didn’t know what was happening regarding transfers, as they were staying away from social media. The press cherry picked phrases to manipulate fans. That is unless I missed another interview… in which I bow to being wrong.
  21. All I know is that in the two friendliest so far, Gray has arguably looked our best player.
  22. Ye but made my point look a little more impressive haha!
