    If it wasn't for the release clause Haaland would have cost 150m.

    Mediocre is far better than what Leeds are at present.

    A draw for us and a loss for Leeds puts us safe.

    2021/22 Anthony Gordon

    He is a young player whose form will go up and down . He probably needs to be rested at this stage. He has done wonderfully well but I think the games are catching up with him now.

    If it meant proving his fitness it might. In fact I think if he was to be sold he may be in the team to boost his value. Leaving a player sitting on the bench is hardly an ideal promotional plan.

    I think they may feel that a recurrence of his injury now could lead to him missing the start of next season as well. There are about ten days left in this league, three games. We have recently beaten Utd, Chelsea and Leicester without him but he is on the bench if needed. Rondon has been...

    Defending him against what ?

    2021/22 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    My conspiracy theory is that DCL has had a very bad injury and he is being brought back very carefully to avoid a recurrence. In recent weeks we have done well in his absence and the manager has not seen the need to risk him if he can avoid it. I don't think DCL will be sold this summer, maybe...

    2021/22 Yerry Mina

    How will he perform for us against Watford, Brentford and Palace ? He won't because he is injured again. A player who is almost continually injured is certainly not our best defender.

    Everton summer 2022 transfer thread

    Jason Knight is well worth looking at.

    2021/22 Dele Alli

    I think that is correct. I think FL sees him as part of his plan for next season, if we stay up, but not the player we need to dig ourselves out of trouble at the moment.

    I think that unless there is a decent offer then he will be kept for next season.

    The £600mil+ spend narrative

    That is a very good summary and averages 44m per season which is far from silly spending. However, it does not fit the media narrative and so will be ignored. I would however point out that where we have performed badly is in the levels of wages we are paying to some of those signings.

    I think it unlikely DCL will be sold this summer. Richarlison will almost definitely leave and a couple of others as well. DCL has had an horrendous season where his value will have plummeted , it is hard to see any club offer the kind of money we would have expected twelve months ago. I think...
