Yes, let's compare prices of a European cup winning player with a player whose team finished 43 points behind his side last season.  :wave

If only they had someone like Gomes in midfield,would have done a lot better.

Oh wait..

To be fair he was decent. If Rodri is worth 70m, then 30m for Gomes isn't bad. By some margin their best midfielder.

Do welsh players count towards the homegrown quotas though. :lmao

I've long said that their insular mentality and marketing just kills them. At a time when everyone is reaching out, being welcoming and inclusive, that lot pull up the drawbridge on County Road and tell the world it's not welcome. If there was ever a club that so willingly shot itself in the foot time and time again, it's Everton. While big clubs look towards new horizons and reach out, Everton happily drive themselves into a cul-de-sac then congratulate themselves for doing so.  :lmao

Of course. They have lost their own identity so have simply become the Anti-Liverpool.

We have flags and banners, so they hate all that stuff.
We have a world renowned anthem, so they are against that kind of thing.
We have a global audience, so they have to go for the small but 'special' angle.  ::)
We win the biggest trophies, so they have to discredit them and pretend they are winners without actually winning anything.
We look outwards, so they look inwards.
We embrace and include, so they reject and disrespect.

They are a rudderless ship without a name on the bow. Identity opportunists, in that they look to see what we do, how we think, what we believe in, how we approach things etc ... then they just do, think and believe the opposite. It's a lazy way of trying to construct some kind of identity. An existence rather than a life. Sad really.

His Twitter bio:

Digne👈🏻Robertson, Pickford👈🏻Alisson, Keane👈🏻Gomez, Richarlison👈🏻Firmino. If you disagree, you don’t watch football and clearly know nothing.

:lmao

I'm guessing he's about 12.

Trying to figure out which of these is the MOST ludicrous. I mean, they're all extremely daft of course, but I'm scratching my head as which is the most obscenely wrong. Will have to settle for "Pickford over Alisson", the idea of which so extraordinarily laughable. ;D

I can't comment on all of them because I don't know who Digne is and I can't recall ever noticing Richarlison or Keane play. I have, however, seen plenty of footage of T-Rex, and anyone who has him in over Becker is either biased to a stupid degree or they know nothing about football.

If evidence is required I suppose the fact that the players on one side won the European Cup and finished with 97 points in the league, whilst the players on the other side won nothing and finished 43 points adrift of us should just about cover it.

The elevation of Gomes as a ‘top player’ while discounting Keita is an interesting study in the psychology of some Everton fans. Gomes made a very decent fist of things last season, especially the autumn months. A grateful fanbase will then overhype his contribution in lieu of anybody else to laud and celebrate. Gomes was a decent midtable midfield general - nothing more. Yet he represented something to cling to and hold up as a positive in a sea of mediocrity. Simultaneously, Keita was a fringe player in a top side so became more peripheral during the season. Yet, Keita is unquestionably the better player, certainly in a Klopp sense.

Definitely, he’s likely going to become integral. However, he wasn’t central to our season so outsiders may view him (wrongly) as a flop.

To be fair, that's two decent pieces of business.

Vlasic was crap in the PL, yet they've made a profit (albeit a modest one) when I think making their money back would have been an achievement.

And I think £25m for Gomes is a bit of a snip. He's a decent player and worth at least £26m.

Pity they'll likely lose Zouma, who managed to even make Keane look moderately acceptable as a defender.

Can only assume Gomes is hoping to do one more full season there before a bigger club like United or Chelsea come in for him.

He may not have been first choice at Barca, but to go from training and playing with Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Coutinho etc and getting a few run outs at the Nou Camp to sharing a dressing room with Dominic Calvert Lewin, Cenk Tosun, Idrissa Gueye and Theo Walcott and playing infront of bile-spouting blues at a dilapidated wooden stadium is some come-down for the guy.
