USA international turns down Everton move

| 29/01/2024 15comments  |  Jump to last

UMSNT winger Timothy Weah has knocked back the chance to join Everton on loan for the remainder of the season according to a report.

Ed Aarons of The Guardian has tweeted that the 23-year-old was a target for the Blues this month but that he has rejected a potential temporary switch to Goodison Park.

Weah has seen his prospects of regular starts at Juve diminish since sustaining a thigh injury last November and a return of just one goal all season.

He has been in Max Allegri's starting XI just once in the last seven games but appears to prefer remaining in Turin to trying his hand in the Premier League and assisting Everton's battle against relegation.

The cash-strapped Toffees are not expected to make any moves to make permanent signings but are thought to be on the lookout for loan opportunities before the transfer deadline later this week.

Meanwhile, according to Fabrizio Romano, Benfica are not willing to let young winger Florentino Luiz join Everton "despite recent talks" over a loan move.

When asked about going to Everton, he said – "Fuck that for a game of soldiers" ...allegedly.

We are like a modern-day leper colony.

Surely there must be takers who just want to put themselves up to the shop front and show what they can do in the Premier League just for the next move?

I'm with Derek and Colin, being at Everton is bad for your CV.

Once again, special thanks to the legacy left by Blue Bill.

The lads been injured and is out of form with one goal all season and only getting a start from the bench, I think he’s done us a favour by fuckin’ us off, we’ve got a few of those players already with one trying to escape, but we can’t let him go unless we get another player in!!

Dave, that is exactly what I was thinking, we don’t need anymore sicknotes.

The club being in limbo, over both ownership and how much of a points deficit we may ultimately face, cannot make it easy to attract anyone. What can we concretely offer them for their future?
There really is no other club that has faced such a pointlessly protracted punishment. It has to be considered anti-competitive.
We may have gotten ourselves into a hole but it is the Premier League who are apparently happy to keep kicking dirt down on us as we try to climb to safety.

Lots of rumours. I expect Thelwell is trying to get some reinforcements in with loans the most credible option given our dire financial position.

Unfortunately beggars cant be choosers. There will be something wrong with any player we get in - age, injury record, out of favour, average etc etc.

Personally I hope we bring in someone to add something to the right flank - which is very poor. Or in the number 10 (ish) position.

There has been talk of Ndiaye and Sarr from Marseille. Neither having much of a season but would improve us - or at least give us options.

Not to worry. There's a lot more strikers like Beto and Chermiti out there and Thelwell knows where to find them.

The RS could sign Johnnie Vegas and turn him into a 30-goal-a-season striker. We could sign the world's best striker and turn him into a well-boiled cabbage.

The conspiracy theorists would kill for a story like Everton; it'll be a Hollywood blockbuster before long with devil worshippers summoning the Devil from the centre circle at Mordor.

It is unnatural the amount of players who walk into Finch Farm and are wheeled out with nothing to show for the £millions they've been paid.

Even that French snail that played here last season is knocking them in at Brentford. It is more of a mystery than the black hole in the Kenwright couch where money went never to be seen again.

We always end up with the last pick, the 15-year-old still in short pants and sandals who has never owned or played with a football.

Whole club needs a reset!

Pat, you're posting this particular diatribe all over the website, and it's fucking tedious. We know they're not very good. We also know that, owing to the fact we didn't have to put any money down up front, they were all that Everton could afford.

Do you not think that Thelwell would have preferred to bring in other players, but that the clubs who held their registration rights might have actually wanted money up front? Especially Championship clubs, who operate under far stricter financial rules than the Premier League.

Spot on, Rob.

Even now some seem totally oblivious to our financial situation.

Dave, it's just baffling.

This isn't Football Manager, and this isn't fantasy land. The club are in penury, and in peril of further sanctions from a league who have watched our every move for years, waiting for an opportunity to punish us.

I fear if 777 Partners complete the takeover, we shall be in 'no better company' than we have been under Moshiri. There is precious little evidence the clubs they already run enjoy much success and Everton is altogether on a bigger stage than any of them!

Sad as it seems, administration seems inevitable but the longer the Premier League procrastinate, the deeper mess we get into on the way. Whilst both Kenwright – who at least loved the Club – or Moshiri, who was just a monied fool, failed abysmally to steer Everton to safety, 777 Partners would be yet another failing business to worsen our plight – on and off the field.

The end is nigh in every way.
