Everton have signed Lukaku for 23.5 million , rising to 28million.

That's a very good signing by Everton.
Can't believe Jose let him go. - view external link (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/28569197)

Can't understand why Chelsea wouldn't want a striker who scores goals in the Premier League.

A very good player and a great signing for Everton.

Clearly Jose doesn't rate him, I reckon he will score more than Costa this season, could be a very big mistake to let him go seeing as Torres can hardly score in the league!

Big signing for Everton, might push the top four this year.

Transfer fees are now truly frightening...how long before the first 200m pound player.

Has to be a reflection of the revised Sky/BT broadcast deal where a club that finished midtable last season earned just under 80m in TV money compared to 40m the previous year.

Clubs are now awash with money and it's critical that we stay up this season and earn another slice of 70m for finishing 15th.

Obscene?...Yeah, but if you can't beat 'em you may as well join 'em. Who knows, next close season 10m for the likes of Troy Deeney may well be within our budget.

Bright lad too, by all accounts

Speaks five languages and understands German

Is that Jose?

30-07-2014, 08:48 PM
Great business for the Toffees. Jose obviously has no place for him or has him as an Evertonian and doesn't want to upset that.

Mourinho doesn't like him cause he doesn't work hard enough, he also has the close control of a badger with a broken foot - can't deny he scores goals but he's not good enough for Chelsea imho

Yep, clubs are now awash with cash following the mega TV deal, however BFC still seem to be operating on the basis that we just need to finish above Barnsley, Yeovil and someone else to avoid relegation from the Championship, and are budgeting accordingly.

Our small-time mentality has virtually relegated us before the season's begun.

30-07-2014, 11:09 PM
Barnsley?? Yeovil??

Small time maybe, but bigger than the previous mentioned clubs???

Get a Grip?;D

Read it again, and properly this time. Because I don't think you did do the first time.

30-07-2014, 11:49 PM
Yep read it again,...but the clubs you mentioned are always going to be below us,..hopefully??

No suprise he's signed for Everton. Probably sees someone in Martinez who can continue to improve his game.I don't think he's the most technically gifted and the fee is likely double what I would class as a realistic valuation. However 'realistic and PL' shouldn't be in the same sentence.

I take their interest in Eagles has ceased! :/

With Mata, Luiz and Lukaku, Jose's got 110m for three players he didn't really want.
