Chambers especially, very good in the air, be a big plus at corners.

Speculation that Hause is in talks with Watford over a possible loan move. I trust that the club has replacements lined up first? We have a habit of letting players go before new players are in place.


If Hause is going, then it's nailed on we're getting another centre-back in.  Unless SG has been SO impressed with Feeney that he's happy having him as 4th choice centre-back this season - which seems like a REALLY big ask for a 17-year-old (impressive as he's been in his brief pre-season appearances).

He could of course be the next Gareth Barry and prove to be comfortable in the premier league at 17, but it's asking a lot!

Unless we can get an experienced loanee I'd be tempted to go with this, I think Feeney will be a top player.

As do I, but being 4th choice centre-back means he's GOING to get league minutes at some point this season - not through choice in blooding him - but through necessity, as it's almost impossible for the three ahead of him to go an entire season without any sort of knock, and Konsa is just coming back from a lengthy lay-off.

If the club has seen enough of him in training and pre-season to believe he can handle it, then great.  But clearly, the plan WAS that he would be 5th choice this season, maybe with the odd cup appearance thrown in to help bring him along.

The other side is that I don't know who we could get to come in and be 4th choice knowing they are unlikely to get too many minutes if everything goes well this season injury-wise.

But hey, if the club wants to pip Chelsea to Fofana and make Chambers 4th choice I could live with it :-)

I did feel sad/pissed-off reading about Chelsea's bid for Gordon, a floppy-haired kid with plenty of talent but showing it for his hometown club. On the back of their purchase of Chuck, the whole thing just feels rigged. And I know we do it at a lower level.

Why bother holding any player close to your heart when the vultures will pluck them as soon as they start paying attention they deem half-decent?

I know what you mean, but Everton are in a weak position to resist as a result of their own incompetence.

Will Gordon be the new Franny Jeffers if he moves south.

Good call.

He will definitely be seen in that Londons Celeb spots looking like a fanny.

Linked with Duje Ćaleta-Car of Marseille.. no idea if there's any truth in it. Fee rumored to be around 9m.

Very easy link as we were scouting him for a lot of last season.

Gordon does look like he could be Franny's son, now that you mention it. Talk about a player that faded away.

Linked with Daniele Rugani who's unwanted at Juventus and on their transfer list. Apparently Wolves enquired about him in 2019 and were quoted 30m. He's since fallen down their pecking order but is said to be versatile and have a good attitude.

That's cheap, he's a decent player. I'd be more than happy with that.

Jeffers had a lot more on his CV than Gordon at the time of his move. So had Ross Barkley. Both spectacular flops and careers in free fall pretty quickly afterwards. Everton have a new stadium to pay for that must require PL status to service the debt. Sell Gordon who has little more than potential from what I can see and get in some decent forwards might be a better bet for survival.

Chelsea appear to be in a last minute shopping dash buying anyone and everyone this summer. Like how would Chucky even get a sniff of an appearance up against maybe de Jong, Kovacic, Kante, Jorginho, Mount....he won't. Such a vile business model, stockpile these lads and loan them out for fees around Europe.
