But I know we gave loads of black players abuse up to the day we signed Barnes

Exactly how I remember it.

My bro has just ditched a WhatsApp group with a couple of Bloos in. Hardly a peep from them when they looked like going down apart from the odd message and now it's all "I was emotional when Zinchencko was crying with the PL trophy" accompanied by said photos. 

 

Obviously they've forgotten about the empathy for Mykolenko, who is also affected by the invasion of Ukraine, as well as having to play for them. I'd say it's a tougher situation for their own player but they must have a lot of sympathy to go round.

Out of curiosity, I've just been searching for the roots of the inhaler/PEDs nonsense. The best I could find was a Russia-based blogger two years ago claiming "sources close to the club" said 63% of players are asthmatic. That's the figure that seems to be most widely shared by all the Bloos, Mancs and other conspiracy eejits, so I assume that's their source.

 

Not really compelling, is it?

You have to ask yourself, is there anything more convincing than a Russian blogger with unnamed sources?

The same fella does all kinds of disinformation to cover the doping Russia do.

Is he out of contract or would they have to pay a fee too? Seems a good way to control their wage bill. 

Out of contract.

 

I suspect the story is bullshit, but I'd love them to do it. It's the kind of thing QPR used to do, signing half-decent players on megastar wages (with hilarious consequences).

Given their FFP situation I don’t see how they are doing this with Tarkowski. They need to sell half the squad just to get enough money to bring them back into lineZ

But that might be a case of someone like Mina is sold on and tarkowski swallows the wages. It would seem from what happened in January they won't be going down the path Leeds had to in 2002/3 or whenever it was.

I watched Tarkowski a lot when I was watching Brentford. He was a decent footballing centre half, with a mistake in him. When he went to Burnley, Dyche squeezed all the football out of him and he became a stopper, pure and simple. Dyche had done the same with Michael Keane, yet when he went to Everton and had to play a bit more, his failings were exposed. Expect the same with Tarkowski if he goes there.

They should not be able to sign anybody they massively abused FFP rules. Lied about Covid impact and blatantly took the piss out of every club in the league to then be able to go out and spend cash... fuck off. They should be deducted points and given a transfer ban.

Well that's bullshit. Everton won the 'Redshite didn't win the League' Cup barely 48 hours ago and they're still hopeful of the 'Redshite didn't win the European Cup' Cup in a few days' time.

So, sometime in September-ish they'll complete a thousand days? That deserves a celebration.

Ten thousand... Although that depends on whether or not the Transfer Window trophy finally gets recognised.
