That's more a reflection on Jones than Rojo, trust me. I'd rather have Steve Bruce at Centre Back - even if he weighs 30 stone these days. He's no Neville Southall though.

I want to know what's happening at Chelsea. Enough already on Manchester and Liverpool.

Sod all at the moment. They're probably waiting for Abramovich to tell them who to buy.

Everton already linked with Strootman. Times, they are a changing. No longer rummaging around in the bargain bin.

Is he the same player that he was before he got that bad injury a year or two back, though? I don't see any Serie A football, so no idea what his form is like, but I'm fairly sure he has missed most of the last two seasons with cruciate ligament injuries...HUGE gamble if they go for him, surely?

Sure it's a risk. I don't know, maybe Mike knows more.

But the point was more that can you imagine Everton being linked with someone like Strootman before Moshiri came in?

Anyway, I hope Koeman brings in a bag of cement for Lukaku to work with.

Strootman had a great first year at Roma and looked superb. In the last 2 years he has only played half a dozen games each season and has looked sluggish and lethargic.

He is 26/27 so should be in his prime and I think the injuries have lessened his impact. He is a big lad 6'2"ish but is currently punching below his weight.

A huge gamble in my view.

Yes, I heard this was likely last weekend.

Apparently his 4yr 'extension' is a new deal for much more money, and will raise the value of the player should clubs come in again for him in future seasons.

yes makes sense - we can sell you Sterling for 60 million if you need more firepower

The annual LFC raiding of St Mary's has begun with Mane going to the thieves for £34m. The Southampton chairman must have naked photos of John Henry.

It's going to be expanded from LFC to Merseyside. Everton want Pelle and possibly Van Dijk. Though we do have the advantage as Koeman actually knows what the players are actually worth.

That's what Man Utd fans said when Moyes bought Fellani.

To be fair, I think that was more down to Woodward ballsing it up than Moyes.
