Looks like Doucoure to Everton is to be confirmed any minute. That midfield could be quite interesting this season.
I've mentioned it before I think Everton on ''paper'' have the best midfield outside of the usual top 6 (maybe apart from Wolves) with Doucoure as a box-to-box Yaya Toure-lite beast, Allan as a defensive/holding technician maestro and James as the South American classy playmaker with flair & technique. I would have taken all of them.. mainly James.. imagine him with Miggy / ASM and Wilson <awe>

If Carlo wasn't there manager they wouldn't have gotten Allan or James.. hopefully it works well for them because IF they gel as a team they will be a darkhorse to get into the top 6. Richarlison and Dominic Calvin-Lewis are quality upfront.. Digne at LB is classy too. <ok>
I've seen talk of a 4231 with those three new midfielders, Richarlison on the left and DCL up front. I wonder if they could change that to a narrow diamond with Allan holding, Docoure and Gomez central, and James in behind Richarlison and DCL as forwards. Could be exciting.

Would be a pointless signing for them. They have got zero creativity in the side, their most creative player against Everton was Harry Kane. They've got a below average midfield and their wingers have no interest in creating chances for other people, just trying to score themselves.

Take Kane and Son out of that team and it's really very midtable

Bale's loan back to Spurs seems to be pretty much settled now

Son Kane Bale

Not a bad front three eh.. <scratch>

Don't know if it will be enough for top 4 but this signing will boost the club and give them a different outlook upfront. Pace, power & finishing. <diva>

Yeah, I give it 3 games before Bale gets injured. Kane will last until about Xmas but because he insists on playing practically every minute of every game he'll crock himself again.

To be fair, Kane is literally Tottenham's only out and out striker. Spurs fan I know was very disappointed that we beat them to Wilson.

There's talk of Spurs offloading Dele Alli to make way for Bale. I know Dele blows hot and cold, but he seems to have picked up massively under Mourinho. I'm not sure that's a good move...

It seems to me like getting Bale is probably 50% football, 50% commercial opportunity.

I don't know, they're on the fringes of the Europa League and he could propel them to Champions League level. It's rolling the dice but I don't think it's stupid. At £20m for the season, it's probably less than the additional income they'd get from finishing 4th vs. 5th with Champions League + Premier League money. So it's a gamble, but it could be a very smart one if it makes that marginal difference.

Dele Alli isn't good enough, offers very little. They have zero creativity, Son and Lucas are headless chickens and have got no interest in creating for the team only trying to score themselves. Their midfielders are largely defensive players with Ndombele and Alli underperforming and Lo Celso still coming back in.

Alli had one great season and has dined on that ever since.

He's overrated but I'd kill for a midfielder that scores as many goals as him 10, 18, 9, 5 and 8 in the last few seasons in the PL.

I know we wouldn't be able/willing to get him anyway, but I wouldnt want him just because of how much of a bellend he is. The amount of dirty petulant s*** he gets away with is unreal, and he certainly wouldn't get away with it if he was wearing a Newcastle shirt

To be fair, discovering how to cook baked beans was a major accomplishment for him in All Or Nothing.

I thought he was trolling for a second but then realised he was telling he truth.

What kind of lifestyle must he have lived up until this point that he's just learnt how to cook baked beans?
