    More valuable than the coach so their chances look slim. Next.

    He won't be here this time next year but hopefully he will stay until the summer when we can get in an adequate replacement.
     
  5. If he does leave he's going to better than Everton

    Yes though I believe Marco told him a month or two ago that Everton are a massive sleeping giant.

    Why not. If he goes to one of the big six he won't play regularly and therefore his game may regress. If he goes to Everton, assuming he carries on performing as he is, then he is guaranteed to start. He also gets the added bonus of double or treble his wages with Everton now being massively funded.

    He is still relatively young so will use Everton as a stepping stone a la Silva to move on again in a couple of years.

    I don't think that's a given at all. Whoever signs him is going to have to pay top dollar and his stats and performances this season suggest he'd be more than capable in most teams.

    Doucoure is going nowhere in this window. You can dismiss anything linking him to a move as just paper talk.

    Don’t think the pozzos will be doing much business with Everton for a while

    You have to admire the front of Everton, if this has any substance to it!
    Alan Jones,coach to Durie,Bates and Robson,said that if a member of the public approached him for a lesson, he would think of a ridiculous fee and then double it.
    Gino should adopt the same approach with Everton and then say NO!
    After the Silva debacle I would rather we gave him to Loon than to that bunch of nit wits.

    Quite simply why would the Pozzos want to sell our best player when we are fighting to stay in the league/consolidate a mid table position?

    Just would not make sense on any grounds!

    hopefully he will buck the trend and won't spit out his dummy, sulk and contribute next to nothing for the next 4 months.

    That was my initial worry - but I think Doucoure is one of those players who is incredibly professional about everything he does, and will continue to put in great performances regardless of who he's linked to in future.

    And I'm certain that Gino won't sell to Everton just out of spite after the Silva saga and the effect it's (allegedly) had on the team since.

    Was the Truth talking about Sliva though?

    I too agree Doucoure wouldn't make a big fuss - he'd probably want to join a bigger and better club than Everton anyway.

    Are Everton becoming our Liverpool to Southampton?

    Everton can **** right off!

    Not content with ******* up our managers head, and consequently disrupting our hitherto great team spirit, they are now trying to **** with the head of our star CMF Doucoure.

    As I said earlier they can **** right off :mad::mad::mad:

    Can we offer them Capoue instead?

    Can’t we just bid very publicly and annoyingly for an Everton player? Not that there are many who greatly appeal.

    I'd say Doucoure for £50m plus Pickfordandarthur,Sigudsson and Tosun.
    See what they think of that!

    Why would he want to go to Everton? If he stays fit, scores a few more goals and carries on putting in good performances, bigger teams will come sniffing, maybe even as soon as the Summer tranfers window. I can see him going for £35 mill+ to someone like Arsenal, Liverpool etc.
     
  23. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    It's annoying that whenever we do sell him (if in the next window) and whoever he would eventually go to will end up probably selling him on for a significantly higher figure while he is still developing and growing.

    Let's say hypothetically that in the current market he goes for maybe £25m to Everton.

    A year or 2 down the line that could possibly be £60m.

    Would love that we create an environment and team success where these types of players want to stay with us until their big money moves later down the line.

    We must at least sell with an entitlement to a % of future profits for the likes of Doucoure and Richarlison.

    If someone offers the right money we will sell, doesnt matter what club they are.

    Of course Silva saying no player will leave to the press in no way will diminish his relationship with any player ambitious to want to play at a higher level....
    Imagine Doucoure being asked about a big move and being as non committal as Silva was. At least with Doucoure you can argue he's earnt a step up in his career.
    Imagine him dropping performance by 20% to force a move.
    If the manager can, why not the players.

    Anyone putting a £25m tag on Doucoure needs to get with the times.

    £200m for Neymar?
    £146m for Coutinho?
    £66m for Keita?

    Doucoure has to at least be in the £50m bracket. Anything less and we’re being mugged off.

    £18m for Gray?

    Doucoure would be a pretty perfect addition for Arsenal in the summer, if you ask me or my mate who is an Arsenal fan. So perfect, in fact, that there is absolutely no chance whatsoever that Arsene will spend the cash required to bring him in.

    Arsene will be sitting upstairs next season carrying out his ambassador role.
