New Everton Manager Keen On Newcastle Star


Everton have been linked with interest in Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles for some months now.

After sacking Sam Allardyce in the summer, the Goodison Park club have signed former Hull City and Watford manager Marco Silva who is an up-and-coming young manager.

The Sun is reporting that Silva will now make Lascelles his top priority signing to shore up a defense that leaked 58 goals last season.

Everton finished the season in a respectable 8th position, but every team above them conceded fewer goals.

So defense is one area the 40-year-old manager will attempt to improve this summer.

Marco Silva – interested in Jamaal Lascelles

The Sun reports that Everton will be willing to pay out £30M to get Jamaal.

The Newcastle defender is not only a good Premier League player but has top-class leadership skills on and off the field.

Jamaal would be worth £30M to the Toffees, but we would still be shocked if Rafa lets the 24-year-old go – even for £30M.

The former Nottingham Forest defender is a lynchpin at Newcastle, and there should be no way he leaves the club this summer.

He was our Player of the Season last season, and Jamal has attracted interest from some big clubs – including Chelsea.

And one last thing, Silva is reported to be getting at least £3M/year at Everton.

So if he’s worth that how then much is Rafa worth to Newcastle.

Answer – a lot more than the £4M he’s reported to be getting.

What do you think?

    Why would he when he could move to a much bigger club once he’s had a bit more experience with us?

    Hell, on the off chance that Fat Man sorts his head out, might even be worth his while hanging about.

    The Sun might as well start reporting that Silva looks like a lost school boy in his tat Everton shirt and that’s he’s lost the dressing room and is going to be replaced by Coleman. That would be closer to the truth

    Not a single quote other than plagiarised quotes
    from Rafa from a fortnight ago.
    I doubt this clown has ever spoken to Silva.

    I agree with others – if Lascelles did leave it would surely be to a top six club. However I think he will stay as long as Rafa stays but if Rafa decided to leave then that would be a different ball game!

    I don’t have a hatred of Everton, I just see them as a football dinosaur of a club. Just a club living in Liverpool’s shadow, and full of spite at their near neighbours relative success (Remind you of anybody?). I’m actually very nonchalant about Everton in general, as a club I wouldn’t miss if they were gone.

    I can’t see Lascelles moving to Everton, no better than us at this time.. I would value Lascelles at £40Mill minimum, we could get more in a bidding war, he is much better than what Arsenal,Chelsea,Liverpool,ManU,have in the CD department. I think we will be able to keep him this season, unless we receive a bid in excess of £40 Mill, in that case it could be the F@T TW@T who decides if he will stay or go.

    I dislike the Everton sense of entitlement, like they can just reach out and pluck any player they wish from the grasp of any other club. There’s a sense of arrogance about the club and its fans, an accusation often leveled at us. These Lascelles rumours are being fed to the media from somewhere, and for sure it’s not coming from NUFC. Lascelles is too intelligent and settled to have his head turned, but another player could easily become unsettled by this constant drip of speculation.

    He’s we’ll worth the that £30m right now. Every penny. That said, what will he be worth next season, or the season after, when he’s a regular England International – captain even? £80-100? Why on earth would Rafa not realise that too? Of course he would.
    I can see no way Rafa would sell this season, even to raise funds. Lascelles is a player on the up who’s value will just keep rising.

    Bobby, more importantly, I think the chubby one realises that Lacelles’ value will continue to rise and won’t cash in yet. He has a habit of selling our best players, but if you think about Carroll, Cabaye, Sissoko, all were sold at the peak of their valuation and not before

    Hibbett, if he does, Rafa will walk mate. That’s what this contract is all about. So far though, it appears Rafa had had the say on who comes and who goes and I’m hopeful it will stay that way. Again, why sell now when his value can double or treble?

    Ah Everton.
    The club part owned by a mystery Russian with mystery money.
    According to Panarama that is.
    Seems things are changing at Chelsea. Perhaps they will be next.

    RobLeenio,
    The fact that he has a year left on his contract is irrelevant imo. If he doesn’t sign a new deal this summer he isn’t signing one at all.

    Rafa wants complete control over transfers. Either he’ll get what he wants or he’ll be out the door. So far he’s still here and talks, although dragging on for some people, are continuing.
    We know Rafa won’t sign until everything is how he wants it and sadly, that will take longer than most would like. That’s life. Better slowly than not at all.
    I’m not reacting either way until talks are exhausted.

    Assuming that interview Penfold gave was based on truth, then Rafa already has total say on who comes and who goes. That interview was widely publicised and nobody has contradicted it as far as I’m aware. If that’s the case then if Lascelles does go, Rafa will have sanctioned it and I can’t see that happening.
    How many players have we been linked to? It’s all paper talk until something actually happens.

    If he doesn’t sign a new deal this summer he isn’t signing one at all.

    Benitez renewed his contract at LPool on the18th March 2009,
    fifteen weeks before his old one expired.

    Jib – re Lewis Gibson. Yes they got him from under our noses, but to be fair to them it was less about them recruiting him and more about us letting him slip through our fingers. He felt he had to go somewhere and chose Everton.

    As well as whether he’ll be sold, why on earth would Lascelles choose to go to Everton? Let’s, be honest, he’s the most promising England centre back not going to Russia and has been linked to other clubs he’s far more likely to leave for.
    So far he has said he’s happy here, learning under a great manager, captaining a great club. If his head hasn’t been turned by talks of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs etc, Everton is hardly likely to float his boat.

    There is an annoying perception of Newcastle that we are not big enough to hold on to our star players and, that even Everton is a big draw for them.
    This began with Percy, pandering to Ashley’s lack of ambition and repeatedly saying we were not able “to compete”! If you throw enough mud….
    We now need to buy at least one marquee signing to rebuild our image.
    In 11 years we’ve gone from a CL club to PL “also rans”!
    Ashley just doesn’t realise how fckin privileged he is to own this great institution. This season he has a chance to really make a name for himself; after all who would know who Abramovich was without Chelsea?
    C’mon Ashley surprise us ffs!

    What we can offer that other clubs can’t is a fan base second to none. That’s why Rafa wants to stay. That’s why Dubravka couldn’t wait to sign and what could be responsible for bringing Kenedy back. It’s what helped drive these players to the heights of tenth when every pundit had us down for relegation.

    The Sun you will recall is outcast by Liverpool.supporters because of their reporting on the Hillsborough disaster.
    Are they really courting Everton supporters to boost their circulation on Mersyside ?

    Everton’s investor and sugar daddy is Iranian born Moshiri a former Arsenal shareholder who sold his stake in Arsenal to his business partner Alisher Usmanov for a reported £200m.
    However it was reported that his purchase of 49.9% share ownership in Everton was only £30m and that he would be relied on to fund the development of s new ground for Everton as Goodson Parj is falling down. Latest estimates put the cost of their new ground at £300million plus and they will have to build a new road just to get to the site. They’ve burnt cash on Rooney and Tosun and Moshiri was quoted something along the lines of “restoring Everton to one of Europe’s foremost clubs”

    It’s a basket case of a club stuck in the shadow of Liverpool and is following the well worn path of West Ham, Sunderland and Leeds as being beyond redemption in the belief that other than a core of genuine fans they can build an empire out in the sticks.

    According to the American business magazine Forbes, Moshiri’s personal wealth is estimated at around $1.3bn.

    Munster Mag @34 – If I remove my black & white glasses I would say Everton are a similar size to us and I’ve always found their supporters to be ok. However they will always be in the shadow of Liverpool and we definitely have the advantage of being a one club city.

    Can’t see Marco Silva being interested in dropping that much on Lascelles… If everton still had Big Sam then I could believe it, hes right up Allardyces street, But Silva likes a high line and pacy centre backs… Lascelles would get murdered in his system…
