Where are Everton Getting all their money from??

Obviously we all know that they got a reported £75 million for Loukakou, but they spent 30 mill on Pilkington. Then bought Michael Keane and Klassen and it looks as though they are going to nick Giroud off us as well as putting in a bid for Sigusson for 32 mill
What worries me is we have all ready got rid of a lot of dead wood and a lot of money of the wage bill but when are we going to spend it? and replace Nordtvedt Valencia Calleri etc. It looks like we are going to have a very depleted squad, and in December I think its all going to hit the fan with at least 4or 5 first team players out ( If we are lucky!) there are 9 games in December and all our academy players will be out on loan, have we got the right strategy here? It seems to me that if we don't start signing now some of our Targets they are going to be gone, and we will be panic buying like we did with Zaza and Calleri Hate to say it but we don't seem to have learnt a f*cking thing from the mistakes we made from last season with Bacca. Wish our board showed the same commitment and belief as the one at Everton, I know time will tell, bla bla bla, but I think we are being to patient here, and its all right saying, "Keep Calm" and just lay back it will work out at the end of the transfer window, Slaven has his targets. But I for one are getting really worried and if SuGo dont put their hands in their pockets and spend about 70 mill, we are in his words going to be "Flirting with Relegation" and we fall by the wayside which is the Championship football. So wake up and lets see some thing positive. COYI

By the wayside,(what a surprise) so as usual we will be picking up scraps at the last minute...unless the board get their finger out i can only see us struggling next season...

Be patient? How often do we hear that in windows? We will go into the start of the season under prepared. Late signings and players not adjusted to the team because they haven't been bought early enough and points lost as a result.

That is the biggest concern Red Neck,I just hope they dont leave it to dead line day .We all know the board are shrewd business men and looking for the best deal but this season in particular Bilic will be hoping they act fast as his job is on the line.He will want the best preparations possible in the pre season build up,delaying ,will only hamper things.Pulling out on the Nacho deal was a surprise,and seemingly Bilic's doing,wtf did he okay the player in the first place? From what stories you hear about the selection of players to go after,Sullivan ,Henry and Bilic all have an input,but Bilic has the final say.We all know a couple of out and out strikers are priority ,but the list is dwindling fast,if the media sources are anything to go by.I have always felt the team lacks pace and movement up front in the goalscoring department,just hope they dont bring in more average Joes's who don't add that extra dimension to Westham's game.Let's hope the board use the budget, (£62m) I heard ,on some real quality marksmen.

They had a Billionaire investor buy 48% of the club. So they have 2 rich owners + the TV money and tbh there wage bill is probably quite low

Also out of all there signings, the only one i would want is Klassen. There paying way over the odds for player. Michael Keane is no better than any of our center backs

Everton are spending all this money to finish 7th or 8th again and judging from the quality of the players theyve signed it wouldnt shock me if they finished lower,

i thought you said ajax had the best youth players ever? therefore klaasen must be good no? and pickford is a good gk, and id suggest koeman is better placed to know a good defender than you and i. add experience of rooney into the mix, not sure anyone would agree with your assessment really.

Shock horror DITM is claiming I said something, that wasnt said, again. Klaasen is good, does that mean he will adapt to the prem this season? No. Pickford the jury is still out, hes got potential but currently he easily couldve been made to look better than he is due to playing for sunderland and hes nowhere near Butlands level. Michael Keane, is a bog standard decent center back and not much more id much prefer Ogbonna and reid who cost us a fraction of price. The exeprience of Rooney? Hes an interesting one, could potentially be flop of the season or signing of the season. Then theres the fact as of yet they were already good defensively but they struggled to score goals in some games and now they have to replace there 25 goal a season striker, which so far there relying on a player who didnt score 20 goals in the spanish league last season and again could go either way. Then you can tell me you think there finishing above, city, chelsea, united, arsenal liverpool next season

Boys you two should get a room. You could take Redneck's and Bikerboy's after they've used it. Although you might want to change the sheets ;))

You never know in football they get Sigusson and he clicks with Rooney they've got the next England goal keeper wouldnt hold your breath I think they could challenge for the champions league. Dont forget Rooney has some thing to prove his 7-1 to get back in the England squad
