Why would you want to stay at Everton when you could go to Sevilla?

At the same time, why would we be arsed about a player who's spent half a season injured and couldn't get a game over Niasse and Calvert-Lewin when he was fit and now is on loan at Sevilla and can't get a game there either.

Issue for us for the rest of the season not that we have anything else to play for now. Rooney and Gueye could play deep with either Davies or Klaassen ahead. Gives us a chance I suppose to see if Klaassen can show signs of being able to cut it in England. Anything as long as Schneiderlin doesn't end up back in the starting eleven.

Vlasic, please.

You'd play him central?

Yep. Think he'd be our next best option there, if Rooney is to stay deeper. 

Not going to happen, though. Won't see him for again under Allardyce probably.

We'll just likely play three midfielders with no instruction for any of them to advance away from home but now and again Davies or Rooney will push on at home.

Yeah don't mind that as long as we get one pushing on from midfield. As long as Coleman and Baines are fit we can afford to be conservative in midfield and try and overload out wide.

I wouldn't mind seeing Vlasic get some time in place of Bolasie but like you say, I'm not expecting to see a lot of him this season.

The main issue with Walsh still is the lack of clarification over his role. Who decided to bid for Walcott and Tosun? Because whether it's Sam or Walsh one of them deserves mild credit for that.

I think he's heavily involved in all first team player acquisitions. Manager and DoF decide what's a priority, they both have their ideas and come to an agreement. Obviously some are heavily backed by one of them, Klaassen from Koeman, Lookman from Walsh for example. 

Walsh wanted Allardyce from start after Koeman was sacked (that's enough for him to be sacked) and pushed for it. 

He travels for discussions with teams and players, as well. He actually does a fair amount but Moshiri is rightfully wanting more value for money and that's why we've looked at other people to step in. 

Walsh wasn't even our first pick for the job, Moshiri wanted Monchi.

I actually don't want to see us make big signings this summer. Much prefer it if we clear out the ones that need clearing out and just replace them with young, decent players. Then just need to find a manager who can grow the club by developing players rather than splashing out on "stars".

Ideally, yeah. I think whoever is DoF and manager this summer is under a lot of pressure to have a good summer window which is why I can't see many 'unknown' players coming through the doors. Success rate this window has got to be high.

We didn't do much business last season. Williams, Gana, Bolasie. Stekelenburg for a minimal fee, DCL for £1 million, Valencia on loan. 

Don't think any one said we done well.

Maybe I should have put it up in lights for you? 

Last summer mate, last summer :D

It would be funny if we were deluded and thought we had a great summer while everyone else called that we'd fucked up but most people were generally impressed with the business we did aside from not replacing Lukaku. Obviously we were wrong.

Marcel Brands on his way to Everton, surely to replace Steve Walsh. This means that the Fabra link that was posted yesterday is more likely to have some truth to it as Brands has a reputation for bringing South Americans to PSV. 

If this is all true it gives me faith that the new regime will be in place sooner rather than later, sans Big Sam, Little Sam and Shakespeare.

Yeah that letter is on the fucking money.

You blueshite have been sold so many promises over the decades about ambition from your board, but never really kicked on.

Granted, in recent history the best time you've had to do that on the pitch was in the Moyes era, but Kenwright would never give Everton the financial backing to challenge because the club didn't have the resources. And Leeds is a good example of why you don't go into financial ruin in the chase of glory... of it fails it could be a disaster.

But now you've got investment and can splash more cash, Everton fans absolutely have a right to demand better.

Especially better than this season. I've enjoyed it, because I support Liverpool, but there's absolutely no reason for Everton to have had the season they're having. And everyone but the board (who did give good financial backing) and the fans (who are just fans, once again disappointed due to their club underperforming). Walsh made huge errors over the summer and has built a very unbalanced squad, Koeman it appears signed off on it then couldn't get a cohesive looking team out and had them looking like contenders for the drop, and Fat Sam's general cowardice is just not what a club with ambition turns to (granted, they were seeking safety at that point).

It's another rebuild for Everton this summer. They need a new manager and the new DoF needs to work with him to identify a long term system he wants to implement on the pitch, and they need to identify players in the short term they can work towards building to that.

It's not as though Everton aren't patient. A manager that can at least get fans excited about the football on the pitch can and will be afforded setbacks in terms of results if the mentality and play on the pitch is improved.

With the shit Kenwright has put you blueshite through, and the fact you've now actually got financial weight + the ridiculous prem TV money, it's definitely justifiable to demand more ambition than you've seen from your club in the last 3 decades.

Elstone (CEO) appears to be on his way out to take over Super League. Kenwright I don't dislike as much as some Evertonians but he's long outstayed his welcome. Brands coming in to replace Walsh, Moshiri taking the reins properly and a new manager to come in and try to move the club forward will make me happy. Even if it goes tits up (again), that can happen, just want to see us try rather than treading water.

Having all these new people agreeing on what they want to see and working towards it as a cohesive unit is what will make it a success.
