Standard media bollocks about Everton we hear every year after they sign a few "big names"..."could Everton break into the top 4" blah blah blah

 

They'll all flop again just like they always do.

Are the media saying that? From what I see majority of the time on whatever platform they’ve been become a bit of a laughing stock.

Imagine being a Toffees fan.

Often have high-hopes to have a good season, then finish mediocrely in the league each time.

 

I've a mate who is and optimistic wouldn't remotely describe them. Expectation is constantly low.

Purely on ability Rodriguez and Allan are cracking signings but it’s extremely short term thinking. I think they’ll finish above us, they’ve been decent since Ancelotti arrived

Considering the state of their ****ing midfield the last few seasons... this is a massive improvement.


Thing is they've still got poor CB's and are relying on a very average striker.

 

Made a comment a while back... they fix one area of the team each season, wingers last year, midfielders this year, it'll  be defenders next year.

 

Then they'll be scratching their heads as to why it still isn't working until it clicks..... we've got Dominic Calvert Lewin up front! 

 

But by that time they'll need to fix their ageing midfield again lol

The thing is, they do really well and get in Europe and UEFA will hammer them. They don't do that well and don't earn CL money and their losses will be around £250m over 3 seasons and they will take a hammering off the PL for FFP. I don't see how they get away with it.

DCL got 13 goals in 30 starts last season, not amazing numbers but wouldn’t be surprised at all if he got 15-20 this season

Yeah I don't think he's awful by any stretch. But it's the same situation we are in, over reliance on one person.... except ours  is a golden boot winner. 

 

If they were a bit more sensible in their approach, they'd maybe have gone for one or the other with Allan and James.... and then splashed 40-50m on Ings.

 

If they'd done that they could have had a front three of Richarlison, Ings and DCL....

Southampton wouldn’t let Ings go for anything south of £70m imo. He’s their key player and they wouldn’t be a better side even with two £35m signings. It’d be a bit of a sideways move as well 

 

I agree though, Doucoure, Allan and Rodriguez is overkill

Has James Rodriguez done anything of note since the 2014 World Cup? I don't remember him making much of a splash at Madrid. 

Believe he opened a restaurant back in Colombia with compatriot Egan Bernal, the Tour de France bloke. 

It's called...

Still find it beyond belief that Everton have spent £100m for Richarlison and Siggurdson. Wouldn’t pay half of that for both of them. 

I'd happily have Richarlison for £50m, worth it for sure. 

 

Can Ancelotti get anything out of Moise Kean? I thought Juve were mad to let him go but like Iheanacho with Man City it might take him a few years, if at all to produce the goods in an inferior team rather than have it served on a plate.

I'd have opened one with Rene Higuita personally and named it HigEATa's

Not sure about Wolves, Man United and Arsenal being so high.

 

Personally think that 1) Man City, 2) Liverpool, 3) Chelsea is just about nailed on.

 

I then think it's probably going to be Man Utd in 4th with a free for all between 5th and 10th.

 

No idea why they think Arsenal will improve that much. I think Everton are dark horses with their new midfield of Allan, Doucoure and James who I think will work well together.

 

Stick my neck on the line and go with;

 

1) Man City

2) Liverpool

3) Chelsea

4) Man Utd

5) Spurs

6) Everton

7) Leicester

8) Arsenal

9) Wolves

10) Southampton

11) Leeds

12) Palace

13) West Ham

14) Newcastle

15) Brighton

16) Sheffield United

17) Villa

18) Burnley

19) West Brom

20) Fulham

He was on loan at Bayern for a year or maybe even two. I watched a fair few games and there were glimpses of quality but overall, bit of a flop. Never really broke into the Starting XI.

 

Similar story to Coutinho this year. Both players had an option to buy at the end of the loan, neither was activated.

 

Appreciate Bayern, Real/Barca and Everton are different calibers but still. Can't see him pulling up any trees at Everton.

Rather than signing 3 midfielders, Everton should have signed one or two, then spent the spare money on a striker or a goalkeeper (although they may be getting one).

 

DCL will never be a top 6 striker, they need someone else.

They'll buy more, there's no way they are done yet in the market. Can't stop giggling at the 2020/21 losses they are going to post, it'll be astonishing.

I think 7th for us with no signings is very optimistic I highly doubt we will finish above Arsenal.

Then the signature dish could be ham & eggs with a scorpion garnish. Washed down with plenty of coke (it is Colombia, after all).

Expect transfers to slow down now. China TV deal gone pop

I'm sure they'll get another one in place sharpish.... you don't terminate the contract on a deal because of one withheld payment if you don't have a replacement lined up!
