    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    They’re probably praying that the planning application gets called in but should it be approved surely they’re committed to building it having gone this far.

    They’re gonna look foolish if this doesn’t come off again.

    They’ve won 8 in the last 80 years! 0 in the last 25!

    What will happen now with Wilson/Woodburn/Phillips loaned out to championship teams ?

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    This would give us a 23 man squad containing: The 1st Eleven from last night bench of new Gk, new forward, Milner, Keita, ox, Matip, minamino youngsters looking to break through- Williams, new LB, hoever,, Jones , Elliot

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    I’d be happy if we brought in a back up keeper/backup left back and a forward to replace Origi. Outs Adrian (replaced by new gk) lovren ( replaced by hoever) Lallana (replaced by Curtis Jones) Shaqiri (replaced by Elliot) origi ( replaced by a new forward) Shame we never got Werner as he would have been an ideal replacement for Origi and we could have probably raised the 50m with the above sales. Seems the sticking point was the 200k per week wages.

    We either didn’t want him or can’t afford him. The end of the transfer window will tell us which one, as we’ll either sign a different player or no one. To go through 2 summer windows with no signings is definitely a gamble. As City found out this season a long term injury to a key player without an adequate deputy can derail your season.
  8. Can’t compare SPL to EPL, imo provided Bundesliga is finished then our league will be competed aswell.

    Moshiri has pumped half a billion into Everton including his 77% acquisition and 350m in director loans. A recent report valued the club at 257m. Moshiri is supposed to be an accountant but to my layman eyes this seems to be a terrible investment. It’s the equivalent of ploughing 500k into a house worth half that cost, you’re never gonna get your money back. This is before any investment he makes into the new stadium or debt is loaded onto the club. They’d have to be sold for a billion quid for him to break even.
  10. That's a decent idea let to let the bottom 6 play their home games at home but I bet you all of a sudden they be like that's great what about this/that/the other. Also am guessing the reasons they don't want teams playing at home is to stop fan gatherings which if say West Ham beat villa on the final day to survive then you're gonna get fans gathering.
  11. I think it's now pretty clear it's not gonna be voided. it will be played out bcd or it will be curtailed as finalised via ppg. Seen as the clubs are clearly shitting themselves regarding the finances (Burnley/ palace/Southampton chairman's comments) then unless the government take it out of their hands it's certain to be played out. The plans re bcd/ neutral venues seems to have the support of the bulk of the league and given the choice of this or curtailment(ppg) which will cost them a lot more than if it's played out I think they'll get the 14 required votes. If they make it clear relegations will happen regardless of curtailment then you'd guess 17 clubs will vote to resume. The 3 that won't will be clearly West Ham/Watford and Brighton who will try and use this situation to wriggle off the relegation hook and hope for curtailment or relegation being removed. If they're outvoted with the 14 club majority met then they have to go with it or refuse to play. If they refuse to play then they'll be deduct points and go down anyway. They could try to sabotage it by claiming players testing positive but am guessing the testing will be done independently and it would be highly suspicious if those particular clubs all of a sudden start getting a large number of players becoming infected. At this point I'm the most confident that it will be finished than I have been for a long time.
  12. Any players too scared to play should be offered the opportunity to sit out until a vaccine is available and be enrolled into the furlough scheme at £2,500 per month. Let's see how many of them take up that offer. my guess is all concerns will suddenly evaporate.
  13. Out of interest did the French clubs vote for the outcome there or have the league just decided?
