Said it before and I'll say it again:….every player is brought in to be effective in the first team. He’s only just arrived and you say ‘we’re open to offers’ for him, which underlines what a gaff it was from Benitez. Don’t expect a queue knocking on our door wanting him.
Townsend is an upgrade on Bernard.
realistically i can see going OUT:Any significant transfer activity in this upcoming window (and by significant, I mean the type that might impact the first team squad) is surely going to be entirely dependent on the extent to which the payroll has been trimmed by shifting large volumes of dead wood in the summer. Did the departures of Bernard, Besic, Bolasie and so forth manage to shave enough off of the wage bill that we are no longer running at a financial loss?
In an ideal world our balance sheet will have improved slightly since the summer. What I mean is that the debt, which is obviously still going to be there, is hopefully smaller than it was before because we aren't running at a loss.
I hope we can somehow see a new RB arrive (either of the two Scottish lads?) and a loan in CM (Knight from Derby?), but anything more than that will hinge on MORE departures... If only we could actually sell someone at a modest profit - Gomes, Kenny, Tosun, ANYONE.
Spot on mate , the tenor of his posts is that he has a direct line to Benitez and that he is sharing crumbs of information that he has gathered up from the big guys table.But if you just simply posted "there's an article out today saying we are interested in (insert name)" then it would come across far better than the way you've posted for months on end and get pulled up on it as it looks like you try to pass it off as some kind of insider knowledge.
Your posts would be a lot more appreciated then as people would say "nice one for scouring the Web for the latest Everton news and posting it..that Theoneandonly person who we all thought was Benitez's mum/sister/neighbour/vicar is alright after all"
