The Mirror claims Jelavic will have talks about his Everton future with boss Roberto Martinez this week, having flown back to Merseyside after attending the Blues' friendly in Vienna and an extended break following international duty, and is seeking a decision on where he stands.
Jelavic has seen the new manager bring in Arouna Kone from Wigan, and wants to know where that puts him in the Goodison club's pecking order. Jelavic may be unlikely to hang around if he is not playing regularly in the build-up to next summer's World Cup finals.
Meanwhile, his agents want to know the asking price Everton have in mind if he can go in this summer's window.

I was told he was a bit of a prima dona when things didn't go his way and maybe this is the start of it. If he isn't prepared to fight for his place, he is no use to us so sell now and look for a replacement; we have time on our side at the moment. I think he may rate himself higher than others... perhaps it is time for a dose of reality.
075 Posted 16/07/2013 at 07:53:46
But to be honest I think Kone is Roberto's first choice, I think it will be a front 3 of
Deulofeu Kone and Super Kev.
Maybe we can use him in a swap deal somewhere..

078 Posted 16/07/2013 at 08:12:40
We really have no idea how things are going to go for Jelavic this forthcoming season.
If we could get that much for him, I'd probably take it, but equally, I hope he stays and does well in a different system.
If he's as ineffective as he was last time, then theres' always the January window to get rid, but I hope it does'nt come to that.

086 Posted 16/07/2013 at 08:59:50
However, I cant see Jelavic being in the first XI in a 433 formation as he can't realy play in the wide areas and Kone will play down the middle.
Will be interesting to see how we play when all the players are back.
088 Posted 16/07/2013 at 09:13:54
On the whole striker issue, personally thought Anichebe was a completely different player in the 2nd half of the season last year - I guess due to him being a) played, and b) not being played on the wing..
But my preference would be to play Mirallas up front, with Fellaini in behind, I guess leaving Kone to go right wing.
Bottom line is that we need as many options as possible.
089 Posted 16/07/2013 at 09:33:49
And don't start another thread about it being Moyes fault because he destroys strikers etc because the stats don't bear this out. I think Moyes destroys self centred twazzocks self centred twazzockness. And not because he is a self righteous buffoon, but because he knows what sours team spirit, and he recognises that what a team like Everton can do when they don't have money is have bags of spirit. Hence Tim Cahill etc loving it under him.
Sermon over. Come on Jelavic wake up and get over yourself and start banging in one touch finishes again
091 Posted 16/07/2013 at 09:51:16
092 Posted 16/07/2013 at 10:04:57
Mind you the Biley/Mick Ferguson partnership could give then a run for their money based on their reputations and transfer prices!
094 Posted 16/07/2013 at 10:06:51
I think we'll see the manager start with Jelavic in the centre of a front three, with Kone, Deulofeu and Mirallas fighting it out for two flank positions (I think he will go with Deulofeu and Mirallas and have Kone as backup).
If Jelavic can't rediscover his form then think again, but I saw Kone as someone more dangerous at cutting in from the flanks in a front 3 rather than out and out centre forward.
Of course, I could be wildly wrong... as all we've had is one pre-season game to judge, we're all guessing!

It says a lot about our scouting system, then in the 90's, I think Mike Walker was the manager (God Forbid) they had him watched on several occasions,playing for Southend, and never noticed his strike partner Stan Collymore!
As far as I know he is now coaching in New Zealand ! Whether it is in supermarket employment, stacking contact lenses or football is a matter of conjecture! Bad Memory Lane eh!
110 Posted 16/07/2013 at 10:49:17

Stay tuned for the next chapter...
117 Posted 16/07/2013 at 11:12:50
He may be a bit of a sulk but if Martinez can man manage at all, he should be able to show that his way of playing football will give Jelavic chances.
122 Posted 16/07/2013 at 11:24:45
There will be a change in formation and play and this WILL transform Jelavic back into the decent striker he is. Kone I think fits in behind Jelavic in a 4-4-1-1 alternating to 4-4-2 when attacking. However, 4-3-3 is risky with our defence not being comfy in passing the ball around.
I think Heitinga and Alcaraz might do better this season in this passing style of football.
125 Posted 16/07/2013 at 11:32:39
The ball is in Jelavic´s court.
126 Posted 16/07/2013 at 11:29:55
Don't know if he should be more worried about Kone or the fact he's had his boots on the wrong feet for the past few months.
Lets hope he comes good (again).
132 Posted 16/07/2013 at 11:16:02
Grant Holt is a prime example of a wardrobe with feet, Beattie was a more expensive version of the same thing, fortunately that ilk is fewer and far between these days.

If he performs he will be in the starting 11, its up to himself. No discussion is necessary. Same answer for every player. Should be one of the easiest elements of management.
He missed some sitters last season.
143 Posted 16/07/2013 at 12:01:37
Lets see which one turns up this season.
My problem with him is that we all know how high we would've finished if he could have continued with his initial form.
If we got a half decent offer for him we should take it with both hands....
149 Posted 16/07/2013 at 12:12:41
I think it's totally unfair to label Jelavic as a troublemaker in the dressing room. I think the aftermath of his goal against Spurs showed just how well liked he is by the team.
One thing that may be relevant is that he was good mates with Mucha. Hopefully his exit doesn't affect him too much.
I don't think Jelavic will leave and in fact I think he'll do very well with Kone up there with him. Kone likes to pull out wide which will allow Jelavic to loiter in the box and play like we all want him to. All he needs to do is bang in a few goals.

We have three senior strikers at the club. Most teams try to have four.
Surely Jelavic is very much in our plans.
161 Posted 16/07/2013 at 13:06:06
If he wants to play in the World Cup next year if Croatia get there ,he will need first team action next season.

171 Posted 16/07/2013 at 13:24:01
Why? I don't know - that's just what life's like, in my experience! Build something up and it's a flop (like NJ last season), write something off and it comes up trumps (like NJ this season). Expect the unexpected, that's my motto.
"It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world" as Ray Davies remarked in 'Lola'. Er, not that I'm saying Jelavic dresses up in women's clothes and hangs around Soho or anything...
174 Posted 16/07/2013 at 13:34:18
So you think Martinez is happy going into a new season with Kone and Anichebe as his only senior strikers?
Jelly will stay, and I'll put £10 on for Kev that he bangs in 15.
177 Posted 16/07/2013 at 13:39:51
Evidence please Mr. Dyke and make sure that it is sound and not some titttle-tattle twaddle?
You must have some sort of priviledged access to Everton to weed out this gem and be the first to break it to us lucky toffeeWebbers.
So, a source please and make sure that it's not second- or third- or fourth-hand hearsay.

182 Posted 16/07/2013 at 13:52:13
Latchford actually scored 11 league goals in 36 apps
However he also scored 9 cup goals, so his total for that season was 20 in 44
Nearly 1 in 2
Not that bad really, although 5 were in 1 game against Wimbledon
186 Posted 16/07/2013 at 14:23:35
188 Posted 16/07/2013 at 14:17:19
I think a lot of these stories of dressing room discord, and general mischief,emanate from the Sports pages of the Beano (which has ceased to be published in paper form) or the Scandal pages of The Dandy!
190 Posted 16/07/2013 at 14:36:30
Websites & papers have bugger all else to do than speculate once a club makes a signing, ie Kone which they can then say, well that'll unsettle Jelavic so he'll have 'talks' with the manager, which he undoubtedly will - as will all the players, that's why he's the manager. It doesn't mean shit though so relax.
We've been linked with about 20 players so far this summer, and how many of them actually come to fruition?
You only have to look at Utd making a bid for Fabregas, and all the papers now saying this has 'alerted' other clubs! What the hell does that actually mean, alerted?
Are they all of a sudden going, "oh there's a guy called Fabregas available, none of us had heard of him until now, or realised Barcelona had signed Neymar which pushed him down the pecking order" It's all made up bullshit to fill space on websites and newspapers.
193 Posted 16/07/2013 at 14:50:57
"Jelavic seeks URGENT talks"
"Everton are BRACING themselves for big Fellaini bid"
It's laughable, it really is. Are the Everton board all sitting there, strapped into their boardroom seats all staring at the phone?
Is Jelavic running around trying to find Martinez to have these urgent talks with him, in a state of panic?
Good god, these morons need to work on their journalistic skills. It's cheap, lazy journalism by people with nothing else to write about.
194 Posted 16/07/2013 at 14:50:53
196 Posted 16/07/2013 at 14:56:33
It's not news no matter who reports it - it's regurgitated stories that have been floating around for a year or so.
Even you just said that these papers have 'jumped on the bandwagon'.
I do agree with you though, and I enjoy the speculation over the summer, that's why I'm here! I just think that we have to be a bit selective in what we read & believe, y'know?
197 Posted 16/07/2013 at 15:00:04

I think it will be different under Roberto and I think he will bag us a hatful. Hope he stays.
200 Posted 16/07/2013 at 15:00:00
Age 27, 6', left fullback.
Once a target of Moyes who will still be interested if he can't get Baines.
Brazilian born Italian.
Free to Udinese, Free to Granada. 12 goals in 94 games.
Suspended twice. season 6 months off sick (illness).
Not sure he appeared last season.
Rumour says £4ml.
201 Posted 16/07/2013 at 15:14:14
Also, I think Viv makes a good point here too - Jelavic was pretty much dropped mid-season last year and starved of decent service. That could well change this year, and we all know he can be lethal given the right balls into the box.
He's never going to beat 3 players and hammer them in from 30 yds, but the kid has instinct and predatory finishing, which could potentially work out really well with better service.

They even quote Ossie directly.
Need I say a single word more?!
218 Posted 16/07/2013 at 15:54:12
It's funny when the Echo bends over backwards to placate the other lots fans by saying that Ratboy is wanted and various other comments as they sit on the fence in case he decides to stay. They can't have the Blues having choices up front can they?
222 Posted 16/07/2013 at 15:59:43
It really is laughable.
I very much doubt there are many managers out there keeping their team/squad in the dark over who plays where, and who starts and who he's keeping and who he isn't. How on earth would that help anyone!?
Mental newspaper babble :-)
231 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:13:31
More evidence of dressing room disquiet.
It was perfectly obvious to me that when
Jelly FINALLY got that goal. his team-mates
in a shocking show of indifference bordering
on resentment jumped all over him in utter
joy and happiness for the dressing room
malcontent and rabble-rouser,
233 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:00:04
There is no contradiction in the Echo juxtaposing the (troublemaking) Jelavic snippet with a (positive) Osman interview. What do you think Osman is going to say? It's an official statement - he's going to trot out the party line, he's not going to say anything controversial. Once in a blue moon, players let slip something significant in an official interview, but that is the exception rather than the rule.
An example: the Australian cricket team sacked their manager a couple of weeks ago. This morning I read him revealing that two of their main players - Clarke (the captain) and Watson don't get on at all and that there are divisions in the camp. Well, he was only able to say that because he no longer has any stake in the Australian team. Clarke and Watson aren't going to spill the beans - at least not until they write their autobiographies - because it's necessary to present a united front.
237 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:23:44
I'm all too aware of how the infotainment business works and that's exactly what I've written. You may not think of it as lazy journalism, but I do.
The hacks who write this crap and the idiots who write Heat or whatever other crappy publication are cut from the same cloth. As are the people that read the Sun and lap up all the nonsensical journo-nonsense they're fed.
Osman's words ring truer to me than the Echo's bullshit about Jelavic, and I don't listen to a word of it. I don't buy a newspaper. I don't watch TV either.
I abhor advertising for exactly the same reason. Mind-rape of an increasingly dumbed down society, controlled by the morons in the media and it sickens me.
Not for one minute am I one of your 'most other people' on here, or anywhere else for that matter and as you may notice (or not!) these are issues I feel very strongly about and have voiced an opinion on in the past.
Anyway, I completely agree with you aside from labelling me as someone who doesn't understand the system we're talking about so I won't argue the toss with you on it! Of course it's a circus, and one people lap up - I am merely saying that it's mostly a load of rubbish to fill space on a webpage - which is really what you're saying as well.
242 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:36:01
Many stories are crap. I've read newspaper stories claiming we've brought people who have never materialised. There are rumors with no substance sometimes...but it doesn't mean every rumor is bullshit. Like for instance, the newspaper speculation, and online rumors, which greeted our four signings of this window. This story, has potential validity. Why? because it makes sense.
243 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:45:22
At no point in this did I say I don't think Jelavic will have concerns, It's just the way it's reported that pisses me off :-)
245 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:49:50
248 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:53:04
Exactly! Jelavic has always appeared to me to be 'one of the lads' and in no way a trouble maker. There are aspects of these pieces that really do make no sense at all.
Like I said before, I just hope people can be more selective in what they read into things.
252 Posted 16/07/2013 at 16:37:10
You think Ossie's comments ring true and the Jelavic thing is rubbish. I don't. I think the Ossie comments are just an official press release with very little "truth" content, while the Jelavic story, although almost certainly mere conjecture, does dramatise something real (ie, he's bound to be wondering if he still figures in the manager's plans and, in a World Cup year, is keen for clarification).
I don't see the media is a circus which distracts people from the real issues. I think the whole goddamn thing is a circus, and the media is just a part of that. I think it was the German existentialist philisopher Frederick Mercury who sang: "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?" It's not always easy to tell the difference, if you ask me.
Anyway, I didn't mean to offend you, James. I respect your intelligent contributions to TW. I just get a bit tired of people dissing journalists. I mean, if I don't like or respect something then I ignore it. I don't keep "buying" something only to complain about it, which is what people seem to do with newspapers. End of semi-philosophical rant. Er, COYB!

'I just get a bit tired of people dissing journalists.'
About a month ago Phil McNulty (BBC Football) tweeted that he hated the phrase 'Paper talk' and 'lazy journalism'. Now while the latter is now a horrible cliche, they are both fair comment, in my opinion, aimed at a group of people who sit on their backside and take wild guesses at possible transfers. These people call themselves journalists and, like McNulty, get terribly offended when people call them out for being the bullshitters that they are.
Of course there are exceptions. When you hear Tim Vickery talk, it doesn't take very long before you realise this man has a vast knowledge of his field. He doesn't make wild guesses. If he thinks a club are interested in a player he will say that it's his opinion. Other 'journalists' present their bullshit as fact, often quoting 'a source' or 'people close to the club'. This is what winds me up. They are all out liars who want to be treated as respectable journalists. I'm afraid you can't have it both ways.
277 Posted 16/07/2013 at 17:36:08
281 Posted 16/07/2013 at 17:38:44
I just wish we could have a 'shock jock' type of sports journo who could speak their mind on T.V. - it would make great viewing.
I don't mean just spouting crap for shock value, just something along the lines of ' I don't know how he ever gets a starting place in the first 11, he's totally shite, did you see that pass?
The nearest I've ever heard commentating, or in a sportsman's dinner, was Paul Merson. He doesn't like the R.S. or City's mercenary players.
They are all shit scared of saying anything out of line in case they don't have their contract renewed on T.V. (Lawrenson & Hansen being typical bullshit merchants) or their newspapers are banned. Fergie would ban them just for asking the wrong question FFS!
I think a new football show where no-one is scared of speaking their minds would be a great hit. Too many are football scribes are thinking about their next gig, or skint ex-pro's are worried about upsetting someone.
283 Posted 16/07/2013 at 17:58:01
Not you - the journalists can't have it both ways. If you're a bullshit merchant then you can't expect people to respect your output.
284 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:01:24
I like Strachan when he's on the telly. He can be brilliantly honest at times.
He knows exactly how to treat these journalists spouting out the same trite questions too. Think it was his first Middlesborough press conference:
Journalist: Gordon, are you the right man to lead Middlesborough back up the table?
286 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:05:10
287 Posted 16/07/2013 at 17:56:31
I take the point about second hand info but I am just trying to add my tuppence to a debate about Jelavic. And isn't the close season all about speculation anyway!
288 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:06:27
289 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:06:34
He is angry & confused, i.e off as soon as possible. Well done David.
290 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:10:30
Sure fire hit !
291 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:12:19
What has he said?
293 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:02:33
At the risk of broadening out this debate, can I make an analogy... When I was a teenager I used to think that surrealism was ultra-cool. "Nothing is as it seems, everything is strange". Wow! Mindblowing at the time. Now, with experience, I have to say that some things are exactly as they seem and there's nothing terribly clever about imagining otherwise all the frigging time. Well, when it comes to newspapers, etc, people seem stuck at the stage of "You can't believe everything you read" and they go on about it like it's a great insight and they've seen through it and have a superior wisdom. Whereas the truth is that you can believe some things you read and not others! There are good and bad journalists out there, they're not all bullshitters and liars. Even when a writer comes up with something that in pure invention or based on the flimsiest of pretexts, that is not because he is an bloody moron, it's because the general public like that sort of thing! They lap it up - and if they didn't then it wouldn't be printed because there would be no money to be made from it. Yet somehow it's always the messenger who gets shot!
Now, if you'll excuse me, I must remove my bonnet. I seem to have a massive swarm bees in it...
295 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:20:17
He is 'angry & confused' and will not be a squad player, or play second fiddle to RVP at the peak of his own career. He is also upset at claims he has to 'prove anything' after nine seasons.
Definitely gone after making all this public, and well pissed off by comments Moyes has made. Oops!!
296 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:11:24
With the BBC, you would presume that Match of the Day fits into their light entertainment category so by nature it's going to be fairly light and fluffy anyway. With the advent of sky sports, ESPN and now BT as well, MOTD has lost most of it's relevance as well.
297 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:26:44
I think Moyes is backing him into a corner,forcing him to ask for a transfer.
Even if it was true,why would you make a statement like " we will need him if
Robin gets injured"
299 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:37:15
With respect to Journos: I think the information of age, and esp the growth of Twitter, has given everyone voice...there are some you can trust, there are some you can't. Sky's Spanish Correspondence speaks alot of sense and knows the clubs, and people at the clubs, in Spain (I'm not going to try and spell his name). Similarly, McNulty is generally very trustworthy, and the BBC are pretty much the definite sources on completed transfers (the Sahin deal to Arsenal is one of the only stories they've mucked up that I can think of...and that was a complex one). I think it's a case of knowing who to listen to, and knowing who to avoid.
301 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:48:54
303 Posted 16/07/2013 at 18:48:54
Play like his clueless twin brother who pitched up last year and Kone gets the gig. No need to see Roberto to clarify where you stand, it seems pretty obvious to me!!
Hope it's the former, you were a breath of fresh air that first (half) season and I can't believe that's a skill that can't be regained. Even Torres has got some way back to what he used to be!

McNulty made that statement in defence of his fellow journalists. I was not calling him a liar, I was suggesting that the people he defends do not have the integrity he seems to think they do.
You seem to feel that these writers are simply giving the people what they want. Almost that they see their role as fiction writing. I don't see it that way. People like John Cross from The Mirror genuinely see themselves as respected and insightful journalists. In actual fact he spouts the same garbage as the rest of them regardless of any truth.
The Fellaini transfer was a beaut in that respect. We were linked with every Tom, Dick and Harry that summer and not one of these journos put forward the big man's name. I think that sort of thing speaks volumes when they claim to be so well connected to the clubs.
Anyway, enough of this one. It's 7 O'clock and time for a beer in the sun.

If any of us get a new boss, aren't we interested in asking what the plan is and what responsibilities we might get?
Yes, for a reason none of us understand he lost all confidence last season, but for me anyone who can get into the positions he did and swing a leg and connect so sweetly as he did on almost every occasion he had a chance to in his first few months doesn't do that by luck. That ability to strike it first time without the need to control it first is not that common.... he has something exciting, lets just hope he can rediscover it, with US!
He had some painful misses last year, but, he still has my support...
Come on Jelly, let's see you back on form

On the other hand, can you imagine them being a bailiff like what I am?
Anyone wanna buy an x box - hardly used?

There are definitely articles/posts on TW that are good enough to be published more widely. (Eugene, for example, is a brilliant writer.) But then again, we just write when we feel like it, for as long as we want - and on our specialist subject, Everton. I doubt many people could turn out 500 informative and entertaining words on, say, Hull City in 30 minutes - against a deadlline - which is what journalists sometimes have to do.
I'm not interested in the x-box, but if let me know if you get any Playstation 2 handsets...

Let's face it, a couple of years training, and most on here could actually get by.
If you agree with the timescale, it's a fairly easy profession to be viewed as competent.
Therefore, I never hold their opinion (or chosen career) as a higher wisdom compared to a drunken fecker in the local. Most of it is regurgited shite from sites such as this (as proven by the Echo on many occasions)
I couldn't be less impressed by being introduced to the 'chief sports writer for the dailylyingfuckinbastards if I tried.

If any of this is true, wasn't West Ham interested in him at some point? A swap for Diame and a little bus fare would not be a horrible move. Again though, I rather keep him and see how he works in the Martinez offense. This could be a good thing for him.
