Richarlison will take more time off following his Copa America triumph with Brazil, while Idrissa Gueye is still contesting the Africa Cup of Nations as Senegal have reached the semi-final.
On Sunday, Everton will play Swiss Super League side FC Sion, before taking on AS Monaco from Ligue 1 the following Friday.

Good to see some of the youngsters are going too, although no Bowler or Feeney, yet Mirallas, Pennington and Niasse, along with the injury prone McCarthy are taking up spaces and funds, maybe they need a holiday?

I think the kids name is Jarod something, but hes scored a lot of goals in the championship, Silva must know him, and these young hungry players, usually end up giving more value in the end?

A lot of people will probably dismiss this as not being good enough (Championship standard and all that) but this kid has regularly scored, and is not a one-season wonder either, apparently he is deceptively quick as well. I would certainly not be averse to giving him a go even if it is a loan with an option to buy.

The late great Leonard Rigsby Rossiter was on the pitch at Goodison, juggling a football and had a photo spread in the following home programe, must have been around 77-78, can any fellow Blue out there, remember which home programe he appeared in..
Anyway, back on topic, squad looking a little better than the previous one in Africa; let's hope by the time we play the Wigan friendly, we have a couple of new additions we can take a look at.

These fellas should be training on their own at Finch Farm until a new club comes in, surely to God theres no point training with players that will play no part with us next season?

The most notable absentee for me is U-23 skip Morgan Feeney. It's all the more surprising given that a more junior centre back - Lewis Gibson - and a more senior fringe player - Matthew Pennington - HAVE both travelled.
If I was Feeney, I'd be both concerned and disappointed with that.

With rumour control going into overdrive re signing a striker, I know where I would be right now. In pre-season training showing my hunger and commitment for the main striker's position.
Don't get me wrong, he has a lot of potential, but needs to be seen to want the number one striker's role. He won't do that on holiday.

Good point about that!
Surely Calvert-Lewin should now be in Switzerland and staking a serious claim?
Mind you he probably feels under no real pressure looking that Niasse and Tosun are the only other two options, hardly mesmerising choices for a top Premier League club.
At 23 next year, Calvert-Lewin can't keep being classed as “potential”; really it's got to start happening sooner rather than later, I'm all for patience but I'm becoming impatient waiting for Everton to achieve something different than middle-ranked finishes and no trophies.
The club's progress on the pitch outweighs patience on players.

Jim I agree with you about Calvert-Lewin. He does lots of good work for the team but this is his Watershed season where he has got to start putting them away.
We have been far too reliant on Sigurdsson and Richarlison and this season we need more goals from other positions in the team especially our Number 9.
I would also hope that Gomes and Gana produce more goals this season.
20 Posted 12/07/2019 at 14:52:51
He's turned down offers of a move because he's earning a lot more on his present contract.
21 Posted 12/07/2019 at 16:06:34
Lots of talk in the papers of Besic joining Fulham for around 5 mill.
22 Posted 12/07/2019 at 16:47:10
I read the Liege move was complete fantasy and denied by all parties, sadly.

Make them paint the ground til they fck off.
25 Posted 13/07/2019 at 11:38:14
Hopefully, our management team are a little more expansive in their thinking.

Morgan Feeney is with the Under-23s in La Manga because they were short on players as quite a few of last season's Under-23s had gone to Kenya with the first team. Morgan only played the last 12 minutes in Kenya.
The Under-23s put in a good performance against Swindon Town, a mix of first/reserves, only losing to a 87th. minute header.
Nice location with plenty of sun.

LOL I can imagine Ronnie Barker in Open All Hours, sitting there in his overalls with a faded Kevin Mirallas propped up against the front window.
