Can anyone explain to me why we are recalling Turner after tomorrows game?

We play tomorrow too so he aint recalling him for the bench or to play so why are we not letting him see out the remainder of the season with the owls??

Am I missing something?

Howard can't play against United.




TIM HOWARD is aiming to close in on a modern clean sheet record at Upton Park tomorrow – before taking an enforced break from Everton’s Euro bid.

The great Neville Southall holds Everton’s clean sheet record in the Premiership era – 15 shut-outs during the 1994-95 campaign, which includes the club record of seven in a row.

Howard has kept 13 so far this season – but knows he can only play in three of Everton’s four remaining matches.

The American will be a spectator when Manchester United visit Everton next weekend in a match that could have a vital bearing on the destination of the Premiership title.

Howard is barred from facing his old club this season under an agreement reached when he made the £3 million move from Old Trafford to Goodison Park.

He SHOULD lol but moyes seems to have faith in richard wrong (i believe he is a lost cause) we should give turner a chance because if next season howard gets injured (touch wood that wont happen) and wrong has left (i hope) we will need to rely on him unless we bring westerveld in again. :P

Lars Stubhaug...and he's Norwegian (so Swedish is close enough :lol: ).

Surely that means someone's on their way and it can't be Ruddy or Turner. Only one possibility...

I've been watching Ian's progress from afar and he's had a cracking stint at both Palace and Wednesday- I hope he gets his chance in the team as I think he is ready for it.

My uncle is a season ticket holder at Palace and from talking to him he does not seem to think that Turner is at the standard required to keep in the Prem atm he says that his shot stopping is very good and natural reflexes are brilliant but he says that he tends to be a bit unsure on bossing his area and when to come for the ball on crosses or to let the defence deal with it, saying that he believes that this will improve and that he is a real prospect but not quite at the stage where he is ready for the first team.

Turner should play, simply for the fact that Wright was happy to sit on his ar*e for the rest of the season getting paid, rather than to ask for a transfer in january.

I really dont think 451 would be sensible considering it is like a must win game we need 2 upfront no matter who.

Man Utd has a very strong midfield and even if we add another midfielder I dont think it would make much differance however if we could have 2 strikers it would put uniteds defence under severe pressure with Fernandes + Mikel providing good service.

Feeling a bit nervous for the guy now as he is looking for him to do well if he is to peform with Howard next season, or so it says!

Man U is the most in form team down there and it'll be a huge test for Ian. I have my fingers crossed he can do well and show his ability in this game. ;)

He did have a few good saves but his one big mistake was HUGE. It might be unfair to say but if he hadn't dropped that ball I think we would have gotten atleast 1 point maybe even 3. The momentum changed after that. We definitely missed Howard today. It is a very tough loss to swallow.

I agree, it was a massive game for him to play in but we all wanted him rather than Teflon, and we must accept that nobody is above making a gaff now and again.

I think he is a good keeper, and would'nt be unduly concerned if he played again next week.

I totally agree with everything thats been said about him. He looked good appart from his mistake, which to be fair to him, nerves would have played a huge part. Only his second start in the premiership so his over all game was good. I think he needs to work on other areas of decision making too, looked a little eager to rush out. Wright is gone in my opinion.

I agree with everyone above really. That mistake changed the game totally, I think we would have won if not for that tbh. Also his positioning and decision making is atrocious, he needs to sort it out.

BT start...so he could do what? not touch the ball for the entire game?
and he had another chance to start a game... he got himself sent off

I have to admit I will be a lot more nervous next time Turner's standing in for Howard now I've seen him make a mistake like that. As previously mentioned, it's the second almighty calamity in as many games. He did make a couple of excellent saves though. Notably against Rooney and Ronaldo - who are possibly the last two players in the Premiership you want bearing down on your keeper one on one. So credit where it's due, but a keeper's value is judged on consistency and the mistakes made and at 22 he can't afford many more at this level, especially when you consider the likes of Czech, Reina and the up and coming Ben Foster are only 24.

I don't think it's fair to make Turner the sole scapegoat though. We looked like coneceding for the majority of the match giving posession away far too cheaply and they were running us down every time we didnt. This is a personal gripe of mine, it requires desire not skill to keep pressure on for 90 minutes but we don't do it. For two of the goals Stubbs was completely out of position and that combined with his and Hibbert's resolute insistance on hoofing a direct ball whenever the ball comes their way contributed to us staying on the back foot for most of the game. We got what we deserved in the end, nothing.

hey it just my opinion.

i hate to say it but our strikers did nothing in that game really.

Vaughan didnt even have a shot on target, osman didnt i dont think.

Mcfadden came on and so did beattie none of them had a shot

when manure got back in to it we didnt even try to attack them, we just had 10 men in our own half. we didnt clear the ball and made some stupid mistakes. we nearly had the win in the bag for the first 60 mins you could show someone who has never played football and tell them that is how to play, then the other 30 mins well it speaks for itself

i believe that if we started with fernades in middle osman on the wing and neville on bench and BT or Mcfadden up front they may have done more.

That would be because he was being used as a battering ram. Osman on the wing? He hasnt been fit to wear the shirt this season but still Moyes plays him. Mcfadden should have played on the left with Fernandes in the middle, BT upfront with Vaughan just behind him where Osman played.

I agree about Osman, he hasnt done it for me this season, one or two moments of brilliance at the start but pretty weak by his standards towards the end. Yes Beatts should start, with Vaughn up top winning everything and then laying them off to him, how many times did we see Vaughn winning the header but finding no one in support of him. Start Beatts and give him the full fucking game!! Im past caring about everyones opinion of him cos the fact is he's OUR striker and so support him instead of scape goating him.
