He has it spot on IMO. We can't afford to stand still when the teams around have what resources they do.

"When I came here I had a five-year plan for us to be better at Everton. I have now got a plan for the next five years that would see us become a regular Champions League club."

“Whether it is a new stadium or the redevelopment of Goodison, when that arrives the one thing Everton needs to fill it will be a team and hopefully a team in the Champions League.”
...it's off message with the board isn't it? Don't know whether he's leaving a little hope there to keep the fans sweet or whether he thinks (or knows) that it's a genuine option?

seriously, manny and pinaar will cost over £12 mil, nearer 15 maybe depending on what the loan contracts say.
who knows if we're tied in to buying gardner, and i wouldn't have thought grav would be to happy going back, moyes is quite hard nosed sometimes but i can see another million or two going to celtic park.
is big bill going to pull a lot more than £20 million out of the back of the sofa? not on past evidence.
i know moyes is telling him to man up but like licker says we're short in a lot of areas where we'll need to spend about £10mil a player to improve especially with the shite (assuming benitez goes - which seems increasingly likely unfortunately), villa, and city going in for the same players .

Gardner is backup only. No chance of it becoming permanent (unless he comes in as emergency and plays to Lescott levels...not likely) and Grav can be as unhappy as he likes...he's gone!

Nugent, McBride, Ashton and others are hardly setting the Premiership alight. They may be OK sort of players, but Moyes wasn't prepared to go into battle for them at the prices being touted. He knew their worth, and it wasn't what was being asked - so we go away and look elsewhere. That takes some courage when times are not looking so good, especially when we havn't had heaps to spend. Best to spend wisely, not quickly!
