As was discovered in the build up to the last window, discussions between clubs are more or less in a perpetual state of ‘ongoing’, which is unsurprising given the near incestuous nature of most industry sectors.

Everton have reached out and begun a conversation about the availability of Kieran Trippier and wait for it – Mossa Sissoko. Yes, those were my thoughts.

Selling Trippier has to be greeted with a swift. ‘no thank you and get off my land before I set the Doberman pinschers on you.’

The idea that anyone in their right mind would be interested in Moussa Sissoko beggars belief. I’ve witnessed the anticipatory grief from a good many of you online in respect of this lump. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. He plays two passes without falling over and suddenly he’s branded ‘useful’ or improving’. Dear god. Don’t do it to yourselves.

Anyway, that’s what has transpired. Consider yourselves in the loop.

    SELL SELL SELL!! If there were any fingers id bite them off.

    I don’t think Poch is ready to sell Sissy just yet. And he’s had a decent start to this season. Not a €30 million start, but a decent start. And I think he’ll start tomorrow night as well. Let’s see if he doesn, and how he does.

    The Everton interest in Sissoko is wonderful. If they were open to a swap deal plus money for Barkley I’d bite their hands off.

    • gloster1861 October 16, 2017 at 1:38 pm

      Hands, arms, shoulders.

      Barkley for 20 million. Or
      Barkley for Sissoko plus 30 million. Bargain.

    Thank you on sissoko! I keep getting told I am too harsh on him, he is useful!! I have to remind them he cost £30m and is our 4th highest paid player. He needs to be more than useful!

    I’ll give Sissy a little credit for trying but he’s had a run of games now and the improvements are very small and not close to what he appears capable of. Really frustrating. As for interest from Everton I suspect this is deflection, get the mob talking about a transfer and forget the 8 points from 8 games…
    Surely they cannot genuinely be interested can they? I know a drowning man will clutch at a straw but Sissy, blimey…

    Two of our significant contributors in Son and Dele are shadows of their last season’s selves. Wanyama Rose and Dembele are hurt. If we can get contributions from some of these guys we can be much better. RM midweek? I hope we go hard out whatever our strategy

  • Freund or Foe October 16, 2017 at 11:46 am

    I heard Sissoko is up for this years Ballooned’Oaf.

  • AccringtonSpurs October 16, 2017 at 11:43 am

    I think he’ll be with us until the summer. With the world cup coming up he’ll want assurances of playing time – which, he is currently getting.

    No such certainty at Everton who currently have no identity.

  • McG October 16, 2017 at 11:35 am

    Not saying Sissy has come good, but you can’t deny he’s doing beter than last season, and putting more effort in, it’s a start at least!

    • Gus October 16, 2017 at 11:39 am

      I’m not sure he’s doing enough to justify inclusion but if nothing else it might stimulate interest in a transfer

      • McG October 16, 2017 at 12:02 pm

        The only reason he’s playing is injuries to others, but he’s in the side and we’re sitting third. He’s managed 1 goal & asssist in 5 appearances, vs 2 assists in 20 appearances last season. Like it or not, that’s an improvement.

    • Harry Hotspur October 16, 2017 at 11:45 am

      Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance

      • AccringtonSpurs October 16, 2017 at 11:46 am

        good grief.

        • Harry Hotspur October 16, 2017 at 11:52 am

          Death becomes her

          • McG October 16, 2017 at 12:06 pm

            I honestly believe he was rested for the Madrid game lol
