Now for something completely daft
Richarlison isn't going to Spurs, and Anthony Gordon is going nowhere!
I don’t think Richarlison is going to Spurs and without a doubt, Anthony Gordon is not leaving Everton until he retires.
Reports say, player’s friends say, but it’s never been Richarlison has said he wants to go to Spurs. Why would he? Even now Spurs have won as many league titles as Preston North End. And despite 25-odd years of Kenwrightian indifference and incompetence Everton still has 9 titles, which ranks fourth overall, it helps to remember football existed before Sky and exist after it.
That’s not to say Richarlison won’t leave. But considering Frank Lampard’s links with Chelsea, he would rather deal with them, than give Spurs another piece in their attempt for relevance. Connor Gallagher and £40 million would be a fair price for Everton’s Brazilian Talisman.
Perhaps Harry Winks could be a useful piece and considering what Lampard had done with Alex Iwobi, perhaps he will do the same with Dele Ali and Winks and Everton will have robbed Spurs blind.
You might think I hate Spurs, I don’t. But, they’re not Everton and I don’t believe this crap about having a second team. Unless they're playing Liverpool and then, I would probably draw the line at Leeds.
I’m pretty sure it’s my fault if Richarlison leaves. I sent a friend of mine in the states, who is a teacher, a Richarlison poster for his classroom wall.
I sent him a few other Everton things. That way, I have recruited part of South Texas to the true faith.
It’s obvious Everton are in a state of flux, now. Rumours of a buyout, which seem to be coming true. FFP faff and the usual media attempts to sell off every Everton asset. This media attack is not new, in 1962-63, Everton was accused of buying the title.
What we wouldn’t give to have a chairman with the foresight of Sir John Moores.
Gavin Buckland’s magnificent “Money can’t buy us love” Everton in the 60s. Reveals how far ahead of his time Moores was. He wanted to bring Ferenc Puskas to Everton but was prevented by a number of laws and regulations. Puskas wasn’t the player he was, but he would have still helped light up the first division.
Can you imagine Bill Kenwright having this much foresight? No, he wouldn’t like being overshadowed.
