Inter and Arsenal withdraw
The midfielder was pinged by the Government's COVID-19 track-and-trace system and was advised to quarantine after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.
“Everton can confirm that Fabian Delph will not travel with the squad to the Florida Cup in Orlando as a precautionary measure after coming into contact with someone who has since tested positive for Covid-19,” read a club statement.
“Delph, who began his preparations for the coming season on 5 July and has played in both of the Club's practice matches — including a 1-0 victory against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday — will resume his pre-season training as soon as his period of self-isolation is over.”
What was originally a four-team tournament is now down to just two after Arsenal announced that they were pulling out following a number of positive Covid-19 tests among their squad players and backroom staff.
That was followed, after the Everton party had departed the UK, by news from Inter Milan that they, too, were withdrawing from the Florida Cup leaving just Everton and Millonarios who will now meet at 6:00 EDT (11:00 BST) on Sunday evening at Camping World Stadium in Orlando with further updates to come from the tournament organisers.

Inter Milan have pulled out of the Florida Cup in order to 'protect their squad'.
According to Angelo Mangiante, the Italian ginats were due to travel to America tomorrow but will now NOT travel and consequently won't be taking part in the Florida Cup.
Much like with the situation around Arsenal stepping away from the competition, with a small number of their travelling party testing positive for coronavirus, Mangiante suggests that it is because of the Covid situation in travel that requires 'caution'
8 Posted 21/07/2021 at 18:38:11
We should have pulled out also.

I don't believe you are alone in your apprehension. If the figures that some SAGE scientists are predicting for cases and hospitalisations in the coming weeks are proved correct, it might result in a limited capacity or even behind closed doors again. I note that Man City has decided to call off their friendly with Troyes in France, due to the quarantine rules and their match with Preston will be played behind closed doors.
11 Posted 21/07/2021 at 18:50:52
I wonder (after Gilmore) if the Colombians are vaccinated? Their country as a whole has vaccinated just 20 percent, and among other vaccines they use the Chinese vaccine which is 51 percent effective. Just imagine James greeting all his countrymen then being ruled out with assymptomatic Covid and fatigue.
As far as I can see we are the only team with a friendly outside Europe, with Leeds and Liverpool the only teams with a friendly outside the UK. A pretty big gamble just to sell a few James shirts.

Who exactly has organised this tournament? Is it a private entity or a footballing body? It was nice of Milan to wait until we'd left the UK before announcing their withdrawal.
15 Posted 21/07/2021 at 19:07:49
Everton A v Everton B or attack v defence? anyone ?
16 Posted 21/07/2021 at 19:09:33
Seemingly its run by a business called Florida Cup LLC, CEO named Ricardo Villar, which is said to have got a 30,000 bailout loan from the feds last year to cover wages of the firms “one employee.” Maybe Ricardo himself? It looks as if its basically thrown together by this bloke and funded by sponsors like Universal of Orlando. As for Inter, Lukaku was shown today already doing individual training in Florida before linking up with his team mates. Hopefully theyll let him know not to wait up.

The increased numbers are of positive tests, not necessarily cases, a case being an ill patient needing treatment. They keep frightening us with tales of new variants, but now we nearly all have antibodies, any infection will probably result in mild or even no symptoms. That has been the experience of people I know who tested positive.
27 Posted 21/07/2021 at 19:44:03
After a narrow defeat in the Final, Benni (the manager) says "it was a difficult tournament, with so little downtime between fixtures, the players tried their very best, but in the end, the Colombians were much fitter and sharper - hopefully, the team will be ready for the real kick-off against Southampton next month"
28 Posted 21/07/2021 at 19:47:39
This guy knows how to win Cups.
Have we ordered a Bus for the parading of the Florida Cup? Is it to be televised? Will extra policing measures be introduced to control the public support and people turning up in their thousands just to smell the fumes of the Bus because they have no chance of getting any nearer?
Answers on a Stamped Addressed Grain of Rice please!

One thing you are correct to say which is that the majority of the current cases are those who have not been vaccinated. But since approximately 50% of Florida residents have not been vaccinated that does leave a lot of Floridians who are in a position to catch and spread the virus, primarily now the Delta variant.
You are delusional and with your comments you are spreading a great deal of disinformation.

One death is too many? The logic of that leads to a complete shutdown like spring last year. And if the economy collapses, which it would, what would that do the physical and mental health of the nation? I am old enough to remember the mass unemployment of the seventies, perhaps you are not. And have you considered the excess deaths that are going to happen due to last years missed cancer and heart disease diagnoses?
Of course vulnerable people need to be protected, but the way do do that is by self-isolation and the use of FFP3 masks and eye protection and frequent hand washing, not by relying on other people to wear masks which have minimal effect.
40 Posted 21/07/2021 at 20:47:18
41 Posted 21/07/2021 at 20:50:31
And well, some of us believe that with our health care system capacity and availability of treatment at this point one more death is too many.
42 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:18:45
Australia tried that and you can see the result.
43 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:19:12
If his one and only signing for us was Godfrey then I want him back now!
44 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:22:44
47 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:25:20
The vaccine is not claimed to stop infection by or transmission of the "Virus".
48 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:26:29
49 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:27:30
I understand we want to develop the US market, but this isn't the time. Our neigbours are currently, quietly and safely in Austria where the virus is dying out rapidly, they'll probably start the season with a full squad to choose from. Will we?
Why does our club do things like this?
50 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:32:39
51 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:35:25
If you are not concerned about the rising rates of the coronavirus in the US, then you should be because that is where the Blue squad has landed to play a "friendly" game in a state that is seeing rising cases of the virus. You should be concerned about the fans who are travelling to that state to watch the game and will be close to a lot of other people without knowing whether these have been vaccinated or not. And with the number of summer visitors to the nearby theme parks you can be assured the number of positive cases will rise. Sure, not everybody will die and people might just feel ill. Do you want to feel the symptoms of the virus which may or may not be serious in your case? This does not help local hospitals who are seeing a big rise again in people seeking hospital assistance, primarily from the unvaccinated. Many of whom are now saying thy wish that they had been vaccinated.
The only preferential way to avoid the virus in the US is to be vaccinated. There is a reason why travel between the UK and the US is restricted right now.
52 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:38:19
53 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:45:12
Just so you know, the majority of those being infected are now those who have been vaccinated, at least once. Predominantly, aged between late teens or so and 30. So their vaccination, if theyve had it, Is recent, and so, susceptible to infections.
Vaccination uptake seems to be slowing down. Possibly because younger people dont feel so vulnerable.
The usual covidiot denial continues unabated I see. No mention of the rate of deaths increasing at about 50 plus % every day. Its not about the absolute deaths daily but the rate of increase on a daily basis. As infections increase massively, so must deaths, sooner or later. Its inevitable and simple maths. One follows the other. The link between infections and deaths has been weakened, not broken.
Its there to see for those who want to see, and this is under social distancing measures, just finished.
54 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:46:45
55 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:50:51
Depends what you mean by "Avoid". If you mean avoid full symptoms, then the vaccine claims to lessen them.
There is no way to avoid inhaling airborne particles/pathogens into the body, short of permanent isolation forever in a controlled environment.
The vaccines(s) are not claimed to prevent infection.
56 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:53:28
57 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:55:49
58 Posted 21/07/2021 at 21:56:29
So the government, fighting to stop this deadly contagion, then removes social distancing measures, and "Opens up" the country.
Who wants to see what?
59 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:06:42
60 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:09:25
Here is another current news article which takes an opposite view, saying the majority of cases are the young and the unvaccinated.
Once again I emphasise, what is happening in the UK cannot be compared to what is happening in the US where there is a big rise in new cases largely driven by the Delta variant. And, sadly, unvaccinated people not wearing masks.
I agree that the vaccination does not cure all evils or protect against all symptoms of the virus. But it is certainly the best you can do to protect yourself and, lest we forget, others.
61 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:14:22
62 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:16:43
How about Lukaku vs Everton? I'm guessing that Lukaku wins.
63 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:19:49
64 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:31:58
Most likely unless we take him to penalties
65 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:32:39
Thank you for making me laugh today.
Very funny !! 😂
66 Posted 21/07/2021 at 22:44:43
Thats a weird statement and reads to me as if youll be refunded then can buy them again but weirdly it does reference the final to be contested with who exactly? Or will we just play Millionaros twice?
67 Posted 21/07/2021 at 23:08:10
Yes. It is.
The vaccine has been showed to be 95% effective in preventing infection and transmission by the original virus, and appears to be slightly less so against the Delta variant. No vaccine is 100% effective (except polio), so some people who have had the double jabs do get infected anyway.
What's most important, however, is that the shots are virtually 100% effective in preventing death and serious illness from COVID. The US CDC as well as state agencies and treatment centers say that all current COVID deaths and critical care patients here are unvaccinated. All of them.
68 Posted 21/07/2021 at 23:22:09
Oh and by the way, don't get exhausted now here comes the lambda variant. It's about time to reword some old standards by Tom Lehrer and start singing.
70 Posted 21/07/2021 at 23:25:33
If the game's do get cancelled, I'll take full responsibility for it. My last trip back home coincided with me having tickets for the derby, the one cancelled due to Covid. So now with these games in jeopardy, I'll let everyone know on here the next time I'm planning on coming back over (there's a good chance it will be in January so I'm giving you all a warning now).
71 Posted 21/07/2021 at 23:29:07
His last decent game was when he helped Villa beat the RS, in a former Milk Cup, knock on equivalent, final, at Wembley.
At, City in my view he lost the desire, and Silva bought a duff who is a fraud of an Everton player.
Made up in some ways that some of the better up and coming youth players, area in the squad and played last season, will have an improved chance of progressing, after the Italian job, this season.
Seen some positives knowing some youngsters are now part of the first team development plan.
Each to their own, and reality over history, and proper economical growth development of the North Docks.
Whats the issue, beyond bullshit bingo ergonomics, and the reality of making a renaissance of real estate rotting in past history, and not helping the regional economy?
Fekkn, those do Good, hyprocrites., from UNESCO, whom have never been to the North Docks, and north end of Liverpool, and have never smelt the air and felt the nostalgia of the North Liverpool Docks.
Onwards and upwards in spirit for Everton, the City and the North Docks regeneration project.
Ironic, the publicised descision announced fromUNESCO,, that is Liverpools cultural loss in terms of sea trade and communities.
Another Heist, but this is a heist that will grow positive, and the City of Liverpool, and all in the City region will prosper.
Weekend is near and does any one have any clues to seeing the game, this weekend ?
Thats another story, a two team tournament..
Hopefully Everton can win, and the latter day Spanish Cat, may yet win more Evertonians over.

73 Posted 22/07/2021 at 04:26:05
Mind you we've announced why Delph isn't going. Have we announced the reasoning behind any other 31 year olds who aren't appearing?
I'm actually at the point now where I hope it's true. This is all pretty brutal if it's not.
74 Posted 22/07/2021 at 06:47:37
We have headlines about Delph not being able to make it to a meaningless game overseas when he is one of our worst signings ever and has a horrible attitude.
We then have Calvert-Lewin and Tom Davies dressed up like some clowns at a fashion show for the Village People. These are two players that clearly think they are at the top of their trade and can do what they like. The opposite is true for me as they both still have everything to prove.
There will be a lot of long-lost Evertonians turning in their graves at the way this club has gone.
75 Posted 22/07/2021 at 06:53:08
I meant to add too, that there was a similar photo some time ago when DCL and Skater Boy Tom Davies both went to New York, and posed for a photo in similarly garish garb. They looked more like Quentin Crisp and Beau Brummell than Professional Footballers !

77 Posted 22/07/2021 at 08:13:42
I didn't know this guy was credited in bringing Godfrey in but you must agree our scouting system is abysmal compared to the likes of Leicester, Southampton, Leipzig etc, the discussion goes deeper as we need to look at the scouting system, recruitment, and the academy that are all linked and need a complete overhaul.
78 Posted 22/07/2021 at 08:41:37
I expect our scouting system is okay – especially after a recent upgrade from Brands. Leipzig will be far ahead because, through Red Bull, they seem to scour Africa for teenagers from places like Zimbabwe. But, aside from that, there aren't really any hidden gems in the age 18 to 23 category. They're all known to the clubs.
I think the problem is more our recruitment strategy which overlooks the profile of player Leicester, Leipzig and others buy – because we lurch from one flawed short-term strategy to another.
It's why we've deteriorated through spending more than the RS over the last 5 years, while making it easy for the likes of Villa to build a squad of about the same quality in no time at all.

What the fuck is a Delph anyway? Hes like a unicorn or the tooth fairy. I detest the lad and his attitude. How the fuck can you get paid £80k a week and not work weekends ???? Hes a troll. Possibly the worst signing this club has ever made and thats saying something. He has no desire to play footy at all and he has 4 periods a month. Hes a shambles of a player, and I use the term “Player” lightly. Ill rejoice when he contract comes to an end. Ive never wanted to see the back of someone so much. If hes honest and has any integrity at all, hell retire ……. Not that anyone would touch him like, but he needs to stop taking wages from teams he offers zero too. Finances are tight now and he offers fuck all to any employer to receive a wage. Hes a disgrace. Hes finished and has been for about 8 years. Look at his wiki page. The year he made his professional debut and the amount of games hes played….. its embarrassing. Truly truly embarrassing. 15 years as a professional and his stats are pathetic. Hes a joke.
The little rat bastard.
93 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:07:16
I am on the same page as are most blues fans but expecting him to walk away from 80k without working weekends is a bit much to ask. Would you? If he did, he could take Iwobi with him - now theres a happy thought!
94 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:14:42
On the Delph saga I have to ask, how many players have we signed in recent seasons who we thought would be useful but have turned out to be just ''sick note'' carriers getting well paid for nothing. Hopefully Gbamin gets to put in a shift this season.
95 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:31:35
I dont expect him to walk from £80k a week like, I dont expect him to walk at all. Thats his main issue. Id be delighted if he hobbled away with Iwobi and Tosun and Bernard and Holgate and Gomes and Sigurdsson. That would allow us a proper rebuild. Im just glad the gravy train appears to be over now. We should only be lying top dollar wages now to players who earn it and are worth of it.

99 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:49:26
Richy, playing in the iconical #10 shirt for Brazil for the first time, put clean through in a similar position to his goal at Anfield, first shoots against the keeper, but puts the rebound in from a sharp angle just 9 minutes into the game.
Should be 2-0. Long punt out of defence. Last German defender attempts a weak back header to the keeper. Richy picks up the ball in acres of space, dithers, keeper smothers, chance gone.
100 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:51:42
2-0. Richarlison again.
101 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:53:20
Oh shit, thats Richi leaving us then!
102 Posted 22/07/2021 at 12:56:31
22 minutes in and the Brazilian commentary wanting another 5 goals for some reason...
Richy FYI asked for the #10 shirt saying he wants to leave his mark on the Olympics by being the top goalscorer/striker.

Even at 38 he still oozes class and SP were running away with the Brazilian league driven by him until bizarrely they totally collapsed and threw it all away. Now in the relegation zone after 12 games this season. This is his 1st Olympics ever as a 'thank you' by Brazilian FA. And as you can see, he's still got it.
ANNNDDD...a nice 3rd and hat trick for Richy. And almost a 4th! Brazil are all over Germany at the moment.

Pete@ 74, love it. The kids now days just don't know what fashion is. We could teach them a thing or two, even today.
I can recall back in 1977 being at a disco( don't think that word is in usage these days!) in Blackpool while on holiday. Fashion in seventies Belfast was a number of years behind England( actually behind anywhere in the western world). Frankly, I couldn't have turned more heads had a driven round the dance floor in a clowns car.
I suspect that DCL and Tom looked pretty good and that their clothes were not chosen by their grandparents!

I'm worried that Richarlison is going to leave Everton, the two commentators on the BBC red button seem very anxious to have him subbed since about the tenth minute, obviously fearing him getting injured before his possible move. Ah as I type they have their wish as Richarlison is subbed.
120 Posted 22/07/2021 at 14:06:25
I am just losing touch with reality when it comes to fashion but DCL has gone beyond a few boundaries there for my liking.
I am now just waiting for some old mates of the red ilk to remind me of the shit I gave them because of the white suited Spice Boys cup final all them years ago.
I can only assume that DCL is getting paid for that. Heaven knows he needs a few extra bob doesnt he ??
Jay. Nothing better than being in Brazil when the national team are playing and winning.
I imagine it will be pretty noisy outside in the streets right now. 🥳
Lets hope Richie can start smiling and he returns in great form.
121 Posted 22/07/2021 at 14:07:38
Even Whitty agrees that we must learn to live with the virus - unfortunately his interpretation of the meaning of this is that we do less and less with our lives. To enforce this stance the government is maintaining its fear-creating approach. It clearly doesn't care much for the old Spanish proverb: "Vivir con miedo es vivir a media" -- A life lived in fear is a life half lived.
122 Posted 22/07/2021 at 14:09:36
One of the subs to come on is Renier, the teenager wunderkind we were linked with while he was still at Flamengo.
Real Madrid paid a lot of money for him (when they still had money), since when he has been on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
123 Posted 22/07/2021 at 14:11:26
I think we will do very well to keep him here tbh. If someone comes in with the big money I can't see how we can keep him but not sure that his likely preferred destination can afford what we would want just now.
124 Posted 22/07/2021 at 14:15:18
Are we the only club to have these lazy, non interested, shuffling types who just cruise around doing nowt all day. I hope he leaves. The sooner the better. Appalling attitude
If they have no skill fair enough but this lad is our worst signing on all fronts because he's wasting his living and does have the ability. He just chooses not to.

For those of you who resent his scowling game face, he was beaming with joy, very playful.
Among his very first words was to mention Everton and how they granted his wish to play at the Olympics.
Very humble but evidently overjoyed to score a hatrick wearing the famed #10 shirt for an 'unforgettable experience.'
I don't think many are fully aware of just how big and well liked Richy is in Brazil by the 'povo' not just for his football, but for his personality and what he does to help the less fortunate.

I dont buy into the poor attitude outlook that some people have. The lad comes across at quite critical of himself and whilst he does have bad games ive never seen him not putting a graft in.

The times they are a changing. Havent been back for a good few years now so obviously the COVID crisis has put a different mindset into the Brazilians.
It was always thought by many that ‘Paulistas were the serious people who kept the country going with hard work whilst alot of others like the ‘Cariocas just went to the beach and partied away.
I know Brazil is one of the worst affected by COVID but the thought of them all giving up on their greatest love of all is a sure sign that things are bad.
God bless you all and stay safe.
I watched the earlier game between Australia and Argentina. Even though The Argies went down to 10 men I thought the Aussie were excellent all over the pitch and should have had even more goals. Aussies being captained by a kid who arrived as a refugee. Doesnt get much better than that.

I hope they have a data base can can keep check on how many times, a ticket has been sold on and any repeated resales of over half of the season gets flagged up.
Over the last few years on stubhub, apart from the Derby game, you could always guarentee at least 10 that were for sale, every home game, normally kids tickets, same seat.
In hindsight of how cheap the child season ticket is, it is a great incentive for families, however there are always some that will spoil it for the rest, by simply having a child season ticket, that will guarentee them a Derby ticket, and a far better chance of a cup final ticket.
A shame really, because it is stopping other Evertonians, to be able to purchase a season ticket.
131 Posted 22/07/2021 at 15:05:16
As long as Delph is an Everton player l will support him. Shame we cant pick at the covid rules instead. They can't trust a pcr test?
Question marks over all 6 of our centre mids. If Delph, Gbamin and Gomes stay fit are they better or worse than Allan, Doucoure and Davies?
Wonder who plays upfront tomorrow. Without our main 2 this pre-season is kind of worthless.
132 Posted 22/07/2021 at 15:09:55
I'm still not thrilled he's there, but what a great ambassador he is for Everton.
133 Posted 22/07/2021 at 15:23:07
Brian #131, I would have thought that if you try to enter with a child ticket and are obviously not, then you would be stopped?
134 Posted 22/07/2021 at 15:28:50
You surprise me because I sold my seat a few times on stub-hub and although the club did provide the actual ticket, the seat was mine and it was me who instigated the sale and it was me who set the price.
This new service will be nothing like stub-hub, If I can't make a game, I'll get back the value pro-rata from the club and the club will then sell it on to another party for the price set depending on the price category the match falls into.

I have just put in an order for his handbag!
141 Posted 22/07/2021 at 00:05:49
Im sure they sell them in Aldi. Might save yourself a few bob.
DCL has a lot to prove this year and has the added pressure of being the main target man. Lets hope Benitez finds a formula to suit his game.

Great that the club will donate to charity the difference between the pro-rata price they'll give the ticket-seller, and the face value price they'll charge the ticket-buyer.
144 Posted 23/07/2021 at 14:25:52
No doubt we'll draw it and lose the penalty shootout.
It's the Everton way folks... and Moshiiri has turned out to be a fucking curse too!.

I am assuming now Everton take charge of the resale ticket, they can refund the child ticket credit, to the season ticket holder, then will resell the ticket, as an adult ticket, which will help the charity no end, instead of greed.
148 Posted 23/07/2021 at 22:20:53
I bought a few times on StubHub, with genuine fans either asking for the ticket price, or below, absolutely disgusting that some could try to ask for over double the ticket price, for the big games, sometimes four times as much, to their own supporters.
Thankfully now, this will stop those overpriced tickets appearing on StubHub.
149 Posted 23/07/2021 at 22:53:51
No. I think its because we are trying to cash in on merchandise which also the reason we have a Colombian opponent
