Blues secure Browning on three-year deal

by | 27/08/2014  Comments (23)  jump
Promising central defensive prospect Tyias Browning is the latest young player to sign on to new terms at Everton with the 20 year-old inking a three-year contract today.

Browning, last season's Under-21s player of the year and one of the recent Academy graduates that Roberto Martinez feels is close to being able to break into the first team, follows the likes of Ryan Ledson and Conor McAleny in agreeing to a new deal with the Blues this summer.

His new deal contracts him to Everton until 2017.

Nice to see that Ty Browning has signed a new 3-year deal Roberto must believe he has a chance of making the first team in the near future.

I don't want this transfer window to end! It keeps getting better and better.... now the results better start speaking for all the new player and contract signings made this summer!

Good News. I really hope this youngster has a big future at Everton. He looked good preseason and hopefully he'll get his chance soon.

The last three pieces of the jigsaw are a centre back, a backup goalkeeper and get McCarthy on a decent contract to tie him down for five years.

I like the look of Browning, he seems to have all the tools needed.
He looks a good bet to make a player, what class it remains to be seen.
McAleny is the other young player that has something different to offer.

I wish people would lay off Robles, so Howards bullet proof is he!
All goalkeepers make mistakes, its a high profile very difficult position.
There's been 1 goal that can be put down as a mistake by Robles, anyone would think he'd let in 10.

Spot on, Raymond!

Give the lad a chance – he is young and goalies take longer to mature than outfield players. Too many are too keen to criticise as soon as a player has a bad period when we should be encouraging them to help them through it.

Well done Tyias Browning. I must admit that I wasn't very impressed with him in Martinez's first pre season, but he looked much more composed this year. He must be doing something right to be the U21 Player of the year and to be in the England U21 team. Hopefully, alongside Hibbert, the backup to Coleman we need. He can learn a lot from both of them!

I remember Wojciech Szczęsny looking like a calamity during his early Arsenal appearances but he has evolved into a very good keeper. Robles does look like he has lost confidence since his Wigan and early Everton days but I too think it is too hasty to write him off for a couple of howlers. He does need to improve on his handling and his decision making, but Martinez and Iñaki Bergara obviously see something in him.

Good luck to the boy, I hope he makes a decent centre half for us for he sure as shit ain't a fullback.

The only thing wrong with Robles is his lack of competitive football. Apart from a brief spell at Wigan, he has spent years sitting on the bench. He did manage to start three games for Malaga before Courtois arrived. He moved on but had to play 2nd or 3rd fiddle to De Gea.

Initially he was 2nd choice at Wigan but played his way to the No 1 spot via Cup games.

Now the lad is tied down to a deal IÂ’d loan him out for the full season. Either a lower EPL side or a top Championship team and check what level he is at.

I've liked Browning since he was a very young No 2 with Tyias on his shirt.

He was an absolute bag of nerves in the Thailand game but improved dramatically on his next outing. A talented lad with pace who was in awe of the senior players and is gradually coming to terms with being part of the main squad. Should have a good future.

Robles just needs to catch the ball. He's a foot taller than anyone else around him and he's allowed to use his hands, yet he constantly seems to want to punch the ball.

How did goalkeepers ever get taught to punch the ball, especially when they get both hands to it? It just seems totally bizarre to me, if you can't get to it to catch it, your defenders should be dealing with it.

Does anyone know if the goalkeeping coach actually coaches him to catch the ball or is he happy to let him punch? Because if he's happy to let him punch, sack him and get someone in who knows what they're doing.

Mike you are right about Robles. If he wants to constantly punch then he's a boxer not a keeper. A keeper is not just for shot stopping he had many different strings to his bow.

When I was a keeper I was told six yard area that's mine no one else's. if you come to the penalty spot make sure it's yours to catch if not punch it clear. Too many keeper are now fixed to their line (Howard) and will not come off it. In my time a keeper got plenty of Knicks but nowadays they are a protected species.

Howard and Robles are decent shot stoppers but rarely come out to collect a cross. This has to be their instructions or there is a fear in them.

Pat Jennings or big Nev would put them to shame.

Ant. Agreed. I notice Wenger has sent Jenkinson out on loan and brought in 29-year-old Debuchy to fill the vacant spot. We did it with Barkley and Garbutt. We should do it with Tylas, Stones, Long and others but with all the extra games it may not be possible.
Ant Dwyer

Harrold, I understand what you are saying about the extra games but I think if you choose just a few young up-and-coming boys and try to allow them a full season with a good 30/35 games in the bag rather than maybe 5/10 at us.

As Stones is vital to our squad plus the added cushion of Duffy, Oviedo, Hibbert, Garbutt and Alcaraz, IÂ’d say we are pretty much okay so IÂ’d send Browning out. Within the midfield, we have added Besic and have Gibson, Osman, Barkley, Barry and McCarthy for the central positions so IÂ’d maybe look at sending Ledson out too.

As for upfront, there are now options with Eto coming in and Naismith playing well plus our two Belgian lads were looking strong. We are also linked with Welbeck or Hernandez and Traore as possible loan deals and still have Kone to come back so it would be a good chance for Long, Hope or McAleny to try their hand in the Championship and see if they can get themselves into the top 10 goalscorers list. That would stand us in good stead for next season if we had three or four lads with a really solid season in the Championship behind them and would almost be like new signings.

I like what I've seen of this lad, has the potential, time will tell.

Ant. Would not argue with one word my friend.

Hallam Hope has gone on loan to Sheff Wednesday for six months and Everton have signed 18-year-old Blackpool goalkeeper Conor Hunt according to the Echo.

Cheers Patrick. Will enjoy looking out for Hallam Hunt.

Viewing a clip of the training sessions, we seem to have a whole bunch of young keepers. Some as springy as dolphins.

Strange how many youth goalkeepers we seem to sign! doesn't that make 6 with Stanek, Griffiths, Springthorpe, Tadeul, Robles and now Hunt. Seems alot!

Best of luck to Hope at Wednesday and fingers crossed Browning develops quickly as we could use a robust, rapid, dominant centre back as soon as possible!

The ball is rolling, Howard ... maybe theyÂ’re listening to us. ;-)

@20 Sorry. Hallam Hope.

Ant, we have just sold Duffy and Hibbert is not quite, how shall I say, Martinez material.

I personally can not abide Alcaraz who is a spineless mercenary not to mention a perma-crock. His personal contribution to our capitulation at Anfield will live long in my memory, so actually I suppose I disagree that we are pretty much ok in defence.

Oviedo is a beautiful man but we donÂ’t yet know when or how he will recover from that horrific injury.
