    ball persons ;) these days apparently, according to Melissa chuffing Reddy - senior football reporter at Sky!

    People said the same about Barkley, if anything he’s gone backwards! In the current financial position they’ve (the board) mismanaged their way into, I can’t see how Everton can turn down what could be £50m ish based on Gordon’s potential!

    That’s just not true though is it! Generally everyone who thinks Everton should take the money is talking of a minimum of £40m+, there is one exception to that who would take £25m - or fifty million ten bobs in old money!

    Everton Summer Transfer Thread - 2022

    Keane will be going nowhere until at least one of Mina or Godfrey are fit, more likely Godfrey as Mina’s very rarely fit anyway!

    None including Anthony Gordon, yet! The last one that did was Rooney, when he got the ball in the right place on the pitch you could literally hear the seats all round Goodison hitting the seat back, and that was at the age of 17!

    If he does actually want to stay and does end up staying, it possibly brings an added level of pressure for him to deal with - will people now be looking at his performances and comparing them to an actual £40m+ player?

    And ideally one who can play with/alongside DCL if and when he’s fit! We’re going to miss Richarlison but I never felt they played well together as a pair!

    For what it’s worth I don’t think we’ll be in the same trouble we were last year whether we sell him or not, because some of the big issues from last season have been and are being addressed, but I do think it’ll be a better season all round if we don’t just rely on DCL being regularly fit...

    I’d also suggest it’s a huge gamble for Everton! The position we are in at the moment financially, makes it a huge gamble not to actually accept £40m + and if possible use the money to buy someone (or two!) who can actually put the ball in the back of the net with a degree of regularity!

    But those same experts must surely have known what the system was?

    Throw enough mud at the wall, some of it sticks - apparently makes them an expert in some eyes!

    £70m for Kepa says otherwise! As does £90m for Lukaku then getting rid twelve months later also indicates the “experts” at Chelsea don’t always get it right!

    He really hasn’t! He, as has been said many many times in this thread, has shown potential! If Chelsea or any one else in that case want to cough up £50m+ for potential, Everton at this particular point would be mad not to take it!

    Goals scored surely? I think it’s four, two of which he knew the sum total of nothing about!

    183 pages and counting, and the most used to word to describe Anthony Gordon across those 183 pages is potential. Not - he’s a good finisher. Not - he’s a good crosser of a ball. Not (even) - an average taker of a corner. Not - yet a good provider of assists. Not - he’s fit lad who can run all...

    Not saying the rules are fair but those same rules are allowing Chelsea to make a £40m+ punt, and throw this particular dart at our wall! £40m+ for a punt and a dart, in Everton’s current financial position is not something I think they can walk away from! Again for me the key is Thelwell and...

    Twelve months ago I’d have agreed with you, but they do actually seem to be getting their act together! Patterson, Mykolenko, Tarkowski, Onana and even Coady have all made the squad stronger, McNeil I’m reserving judgement on at the moment, and remain hopeful we’ll get Gueye back! £50m, as long...

    Anywhere close to £50m and we will!
