Everton complete £22m signing of Andre Gomes. Gomes: “I hope in the seasons to come we can enjoy more good football and win trophies. That's what we all want.”
:lmao

Fucking hell.

They don’t want to win trophies. They just want us to do poorly.  That’s all they care about.

So that's £75 mill they've given Barcelona in 12 months for players they didn't want  :P

Course they did, they secured the services of a player they already had.

Although I am confused, they had this player last year why weren't they back then??

One of the downsides to loaning a player, you then spend a decent amount of money on them the following season just to stand still.

I guess they'll take it considering how little quality is in their midfield! Otherwise they could end up spending more on an even more average player.

They want to sign Zouma too, so they could spend a load of their budget on 2 playres who where already there.

Everton are playing Mainz 05 in pre-season, in Mainz.

I'm sure the blueshite fans making the trip will love being amongst another Jürgen Klopp loving fan-base  :P

Actually kind of hope the Ev beat Mainz, just to see how they twist beating a club formerly managed by Klopp into somehow being better than us. The mental gymnastics will amuse me.

or, to be more accurate

We're (nearly) back to where we started last year, except we've not got Zouma yet, Jagielka has gone and Gomes no longer has to try because he has a contract.

"Just six league starts last season, with 10 off the bench came under a heavy amount of critique that saw fans at times boo his appearance and to make matters worse – the 24-year-old was voted the ‘Worst signing of the Year’ by readers in Spanish daily Marca."

His price has gone from e35m plus e20m add ons to £22m in an inflationary market, decent player at times but needs to change his direction of travel career wise

Autumn watch-Everton start poorly, optimism disippates, early exits from cups and managers job under threat. Boo is the favourite sound in the Walton area

Winter watch-an improvement in form removes fear of relegation

Springwatch-The season nears its end, the players relax, improve their form and a rally means a comfortable if boring end of the season

Summer watch-The season over and the late form and a couple of transfers mean Everton fans start talking about the only thing that matters to them, finishing above us

Autumn watch........

In fairness, they were clearly a better team last season after  arocky start under a new manager. You would expect them to improve next season. CL is viable, though making up the 44 points they finished behind Liverpool will be difficult. I would expect an improvement though (like I expect a fall off from Liverpool, it will be incredibly difficult to match last season). So, they will probably finish closer to each other. However, the chasm between teh sides will still be huge. WHat they will really be aiming for is a Chelsea/United/arsenal off-season, which is entirely possible.

Thing is, if they start the season without an alternative up front to Richarlison, it will be a gap too much I reckon. Spending to stand still is never a solution.

Gomes is 25 and this the 4th club he has been at in 4 years

That is not usually a good sign

Either he's in demand or he's not wanted is usually the reason, he is either the turning point of his career or the start of the slide.

I think that, because of the position he plays, will go a long way to decide where Everton end up this season

Remember the other year they won the summer transfer window[even Richard Keys was gloating about that ;)], there manager didn't even make the winter, fired in November, it had become that toxic, then laboured with Fat Sam until the end of the season. ;D
