What a joke
Sandro is atrocious. Hes terrible. Not even a footballer. What does he actually offer aside from effort (which should be a minimum)

Please somebody tell me we will have a decent pacey CB before windows closed :( I am starting to worry . I like the look of Holgate but think is maybe too soon for him
Btw best of luck Siggy I am expecting big things from you this season, I felt Rooney was in the way last year

With Sandro, I'm curiously and causiously looking out for a confidence boost for him, as he may get along better with a latino coach.

Everton should take their licks and get shut of the likes of Sandro.
They were big mistakes made by Koeman and Allardyce.
If we are to see some of these players starting then it's going to be a mid-table finish yet again if that.

Not long now to a real game. Thank Christ!
Butterflies are starting and optimism massive, as in every single of the last 57 years.
But...if number 8 is sold, incoming 57 scores v Wolves and No 1 lets in a howler...will be blaming someone.

It's not a mission statement by the club, Brands or Silva who is staying, who is playing, or how we will play this season.
20 Posted 03/08/2018 at 17:16:42
Not sure why low numbers have been allocated to potential leavers. Presumably the lists were submitted, before those decisions were being made.
Bit like ' The Prisoner ' who is number 5?

Mirallas took #8 for pre-season because Walcott took his #11 while he was on loan last year. I doubt the club would tell him "Pick something else, we're saving #8 for a potential big-money signing."
Mirallas still looks likely to leave on loan, but the deal wasn't completed before the squad numbers were submitted to the league. Simple as that.
Besides, when Koeman denied Niasse a squad number because he didn't rate him and expected him to leave, everyone said he was being a big ol' meanie.

Robinson has been given a number (#49) this year and then sent out on loan. Suspect his number was allocated before the loan, whereas Tarashaj was already loaned so that is why no number.
But Galloway no number (or Browning for that matter) and Feeney got a number last year but not this.
27 Posted 03/08/2018 at 21:35:06
I dont care if its boring
I hope that the more I say Sandro is crap the bigger humble Ill have to eat if he turns out good. and you know what? Id be happy to eat it
But I wont have to
Surely we can swap him for some up & coming striker plying his trade in Spain?
28 Posted 03/08/2018 at 21:48:40
Coleman, Walcott will reach 30 during the season and Bolasie next off season.

Do we give him £30m and tell him to find a new club? Or do we try our best to see if silva really is a top coach like I (and others) have said and wait 12 months, so hes only got 3 years and £19m worth of wages left to take.
As for the numbers, I expect 7 and 8 to be vacated shortly. New signings could take them either this month or in January.
Feeney hasnt lost his number. Eagle eyed guys will see him wearing it on the u23 vids. Theyve just released the first team list, not the youth team list.
33 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:53:14
By the same token missing numbers from 1 to 11 doesn't signal incoming players. Simply because you never know what number a player may want.
But.. We need a top class center back, 5 or 55 I don't care. The same for age. 20 or 35 as long as they can give us a massive improvement for the new season that's what matters.
Planning for the future is all well and good but we need to focus on this season end of.

Get off his back and see how he does in Silvas side.
