*Shakes head* Everton again.

Recommended Posts

From the Telegraph

 

Yerry Mina was offered by Barcelona to United and a number of other clubs before the World Cup finals for €11m in an attempt by the Spanish champions to get their money back on a player they signed in January. Post-World Cup finals it was not the price being quoted for Mina but the structure of the agents’ fees being proposed that made the club uncomfortable. United felt paying them would set a damaging precedent set that could prove a problem in the future.

Oh and this bit

 

Mina was regarded by United as very far off the level that they wanted in a centre-back – and certainly not in the category of Varane. The Colombian’s standout performances at the World Cup finals, including England, marked him out as a specialist player, one for certain opponents whose threat would come in the air, but there were concerns about his all-round game

I think most of us are agreed that they did pretty well out of the transfer window. At the very least they have reasons to be optimistic about the season that they didn't have 24 hours ago. We think this because we're not fucking mentalists who conjure up a world where Salah is actually shit by discounting all the goals he scored with his left foot.

And they have the neck to call us deluded.

 

They are fuckin shite and their shower of rejects, never quite good enoughs and overpriced punts aren't threatening the top 6 at all.

 

They might very well be the best of the rest as the rest is a sea of mediocrity and shite and finish 7th and that is the most they can hope for.

Start throwing he £1 a point offers round lads.  Interested to see if anyone has any takers.

 

Also think the £1 a goal between Bernard/Shaquiri or Richarlison/Firmino  will be one to tempt them with as they're all sure that these two are the best players to ever grace the game.

So he'll be ideal against teams like Stoke and West Brom.

 

Nice one bloos....

Done with two Mancs a month ago. Even more confident after yesterday's no deals.

The blues I know aren't stupid enough... actually, there's an idiot in work who will probably take me on but I won't see him now until Wednesday. Shame.

Today's edition of Marca: 'Barcelona should build a monument to Everton for spending 50m euros on Digne, Mina, and Gomes.'

 

From the Camp Nou to the Camp Boo...

What's the Catalan/Spanish for "they must have seen you coming?"

Happy to sign their transfer listed players

 

Yerry Mina, Lucas Digne & Andre Gomes

 

Barcelona will have a buy-back option on Yerry Mina

Barcelona should consider a way of formally honouring Everton this summer as the Premier League side have become a valued customer at the Camp Nou, sending a total of 52.6 million euros to the club in exchange for players that Ernesto Valverde was keen to offload.

 

Having already taken Lucas Digne, Everton signed Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes on Thursday after some complicated negotiations, with the deals being confirmed around the closure of the window in England.

 

Manchester United had been competing with the Toffees for Mina, but the Old Trafford club pulled out of negotiations that morning.

 

Repurchase option

 

Everton and Barcelona discussed fees all day on Thursday and in the end they agreed a price of 30.2 million fixed plus 1.5 in variables for the defender, with the Catalans holding a buy-back option for the future that will rise to 60 million euros.

 

The signing of Mina by the Camp Nou side can still be seen as a success off the pitch if not quite on it, after the club had only signed him in January for 11.8 million. Six months later and after a good World Cup, they have moved him on for almost three times what they paid for him, despite him never quite performing during his short stay.

 

Gomes' departure was not quite as profitable. Barcelona wanted 20 million euros for him but nobody was willing to put it on the table.

 

In the end, the Portuguese will cost Everton 2.2 million for the loan and pay his wages in full, another favour from the club who also splashed 20.2 million on Digne.

    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”

    • This will become a worry soon. Fucking Ludogorets players travelling to the San Siro stadium with face masks on. Its all becoming a bit hysterical; some more reported cases in the UK and all bets are off. Got to get this wrapped up in the coming weeks. Bomb out the Cup and get this wrapped up in the next 3 weeks.
