Barnsley love this fella. So much that they rave about him on 606 and are giving away signed "Anderson" shirts. I just don't know what we should do with this guy. Can he really hack it?

Indeed. Speaking with a lad at work, he seemed to have had a great couple of pre-season games. It'd be nice to have a Brazilian on form in the team. :P

IF he's not going to be up to our standard in the prem and he carries on playing well for barnsley we will get a few mil for him from one of the promoted teams in the sumer.

He's probably not but you can't really judge him on a couple of pre-season games. I would have liked to have seen him get a few games for us, maybe Moyes will give him a go towards the end of the season if we have Europe sorted out either way.

Now who in the current Everton squad would you leave out or put on the bench in favour of De Silva....? For me no one...but then again you never know who wil get injured.
If he was going to be an Everton player and really was that good he would be on the bench now or even starting line up, so for me he will probably go in the summer or become van de meyde's room mate for the away reserve games.

I love stuff like that!

What exactly are you basing that on? How people can assess a player based on 5 minutes in the prem & a handfull of friendlys (where he played very well may I add) is beyond me.

Cue the 'well if he was goood enough he'd be playing' comment :rolleyes:

Well......he would!
I am not judging his playing ability, the coaching staff and management at Everton are. The fact he is not in the team speaks volumes, players who are good enough are in the teams. Why loan out your "best" players...

James Vaughan!

EDIT: infact, Ossie, Turner, Ruddy they've all been on loan and the point of it is to give them experience and take a good look at them playing every week.

Beckham was also sent out on loan. Not that I'm comparing them, of course; the point is that it's generally the clubs with a so-called small club mentality that desperately keep a player in their squad even though said player needs time to adjust to the Prem. It stunts their game to do that because, regardless of talent, we're all well aware that players need to be able t handle themselves in this league.

At least, I hope he is one of those players. Guess we'll find out when the squad starts to get stretched in the New Year.
