Van Der Meyde Is Leaving..

Recommended Posts

http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11661_5259311,00.html

 

Andy van der Meyde is set to leave Everton at the end of the season, skysports.com understands.

 

The Dutchman's contract at Goodison Park expires in the summer and he has not been offered a new deal by Everton.

 

Van der Meyde has seen his stay at Everton dogged by injuries since his arrival on Merseyside in 2005 with the winger being restricted to only a handful of appearances.

 

The former Ajax and Inter Milan ace does not figure in David Moyes' first-team plans and he will be looking for a new club in the summer.

 

Van der Meyde's agent Chiel Dekker has confirmed the player is set to leave Goodison Park and that he would like to find himself a new club in England.

 

"I think Andy will be leaving Everton when his contract expires," Dekker told skysports.com.

 

"He has not been playing in the team and he is looking for a new challenge in his career.

 

"He is fit and ready to play and he would prefer to stay in England with a new club.

 

"We will wait and see what happens in the summer."

He wont want to go far from Alder Hey Hospital coz of his daughter! Good luck to him pity he couldnt show the ability we all know he had at Goodison!

 

Had such great potential and its such a shame that he never got a chance to show it at Goodison with injuries. He was a great player and I'm kinda' sad to see him go even though I know its the right thing to do. Best of luck to the man. :king:

 

Can see him at Bolton/Wigan myself.

it's a shame .. because in reality he's exactly the kind of player we need to add to our squad in the offseason .. a rightwinger with a great cross.. just too bad that his off the pitch problems proved to be too much for him to handle..

 

best of luck to him.

I have a very different view on VDM. I concede he hasn't put the performances in that his past record would lead you to beleive he would but I think if any of us had experienced the problems he has had over his time at everton we would find it difficult.

 

1. His injuries. Being injury prone is not his fault and if any of us got sickness that stopped us doing our jobs then I think that could be pretty depressing.

 

2. His daughters illness. I know if my daughter was as ill as his i certanly would not fancy any sort of work and would probably think about getting hammered quite often.

 

3. Moyes obvious inability to give a fit VDM a fair chance. I understand not picking him due to lack of fitness and due to off field issues but in pre-season this year he came out the blocks firing and looked pretty good right at a time when we were calling out for a winger. And then moyes stop playing him.

 

I think moyes has treated him pretty badly and should have used him more this season but giving him chances in pre-season then not using him this season I think is pretty bad.

Memmaclub, there is not one thing in your post mate I could agree with....................VDM is a wastrel and an embarrassment to his profession. He has done bugger all for our club except bleed it dry so your rewriting of history is laughable mate

Fair point mate!

 

Pitty people didn't read your posts more carefully before trashing them.VDM nas had far more from Everton than we've ever got from.But no one I would have thought have set out to sit on the bench or in the reserves rather than show their talent.Moyes went out and bought him, he knew the risks just as he did with Kroldrup.

If we win the FA cup this year I for one will be glad that he at least came this way.Sure he could have done more, that's history now.Let's hope he has luck with his next club, his daughter has luck with her illness and we spend his wages on a player who does better for us.

Yes yoyu are quite right about people not reading posts, you cl;early didn't read mine. Your comments attempt to exonerate a guy who many fans saw getting poured out of bars at all hours of the morning, long before his daughter became ill. In the real world anyone would have been sacked long ago for some of the lies and deciet he came out with, he even went as far as to blame Moyes for his drinking, how old is he. If you must rewrite history then stick to the bloody facts or shuit up

Think someone else has been on the booze ;)

I can see both sides to the argument myself. He is a good footballer and has done some good work for Everton but at the same time for the reasons Jimmy has brought up he hasn't been the best player in the clubs name. I'm not sad to see him go and I'm not happy either. I just think that his time is up and wish him the best of luck.

no doubt that in hindsight it was a shit signing, but the potential was definitely there from the little bit we got to see of him - unfortunately injuries won in the end........

 

pity his high point in england came when he scored for inter against arsenal in the CL in '03 with nothing to show thereafter!!!

Rovers are now assessing his overall state and mental attitude before deciding whether to take him on.

 

 

Think he'll need a bit more than luck, tho he might do well enough to get a contract and then sit on the bench for 4 years.

feel sorry for the things with his daughter and his house getting robbed, but if that caused problems for me in my job, id have been fired a long time ago.

he has had more opportunities than any of us here will ever get, he has been paid more by efc in the last few years, than most of us will earn in a life time.

 

hes had a hard few years, but thinking about it, people lose family members and loved ones to wars and thugs, yet still have to go to work and do it to the best of their ability.

he should not be let of the hook just because he has the job we would all dream of, so sorry andy. this is the real world, bad things happen, deal with it, go to work and do what your paid to do, like the rest of us have to.

 

good luck at blackburn, i honestly do hope you get your career back on track, and i hope your daughter gets over her problems and lives a happy life.

im enjoying the extra day off from my job, where they pay me less in a year than you'll get in your next pay cheque.

In the overall scheme of things I find it hard to get excited enough to criticise a player who has had to deal with a lot more than your average bloke on the street, Yes he has been paid well for very little but that does not compensate his issues in his private life. Everyone I know who has met him find him a likeable down to earth person who wanted to do well for us, the fact that he didn't meet Moyes work ethic does not mean he wouldn't have done a job. People will quickly idolise Duncan Ferguson (me included), yet criticise Van Der Meyde for the reasons that they tend to overlook Dunc for.

Going to be very interesting to see what he says about his time at the club, if anything....and also Moyes' take on it, though we'll probably have to wait on his autobiography for that.

None of us know all the facts but most of us think we know enough to judge. Reserving mine.

 

I hope he does well wherever he goes...bye Andy....and thanks for the cross!

The average bloke on the street !!

Do you mean the bloke who cant get a job and has to bring up his family on the Social security, or whose wife left him for his best mate, maybe he has lost his house because he cant meet the mortgage payments. Please Clarify.

 

I just think of the song that rings true. When the going gets tough the tough get going

 

Lifes a bitch hafnia but some people pick themselves up and get on with it, and without the comfort and finances that VDM had at his disposal. He's a waster and i shant miss him one little bit.

Dolce is finally fit enough to move away from the hospital, and as such van der Meyde is able to look for a transfer to another club.

 

"Things are going well with her," Van der Meyde told De Telegraf.

 

"In the last two years, a number of clubs wanted to sign me, but we were not willing to take Dolce away from that hospital and her doctors.

 

"Everton did not understand that, they thought that I was just staying here for the money.

 

"Dolce was the reason that I wanted to stay, but that was not apparent to them.

 

"We can move Dolce now, so we have plenty of options, including the Netherlands."

 

The versatile winger says that despite Moyes' attempts to 'destroy' his career, he has kept himself in good shape and is ready to devote his services to another club.

 

"Moyes is a worthless man who tried to destroy me, but he didn't succeed. You cannot write me off," Van der Meyde added.

 

"I am running on the treadmill every day and I'm fully fit and, for once, I hope to stay fit for a while.

 

"Last summer, I had a good pre-season, but just before the start of the campaign I suffered a six-centimetre tear in my hamstring

 

"When I was fit, I was hardly given any opportunities. On several occasions, I was told that I would be in the squad on the Saturday, but then when I arrived at the stadium, I would end up in the stands."

 

The former Ajax star also denied suggestions that he has an alcohol problem.

 

"I don't deny that I occasionally like to go out in the city, but it is nonsense to suggest that I don't know how a professional is supposed to behave."

wow!

 

that's a pretty angry interview!

 

I think Moyes had no time for him but obviously we don't really know the ins and out of what went on. Whatever he's clearly a pretty angry man and good to see the back of someone with that attitude.

 

all the best to him and his kid anyway

How did we miss this!?

 

http://www.setanta.com/uk/Articles/Footbal...yes/gnid-55104/

 

Andy van der Meyde has launched an astonishing attack on David Moyes, claiming the Everton boss tried to ‘destroy’ him.

 

The 29-year-old former Holland international has endured a miserable time at Goodison Park since his 2005 move from Inter, making just 24 appearances in four years.

 

As well as a succession of injuries and reported alcohol problems, Van der Meyde had personal issues when his daughter, Dolce, was born with severe health issues in 2007 and was unable to leave hospital.

 

However, Dolce can now be moved and Van der Meyde says that, as his daughter’s health is no longer a factor, he wants to leave the club.

 

"Things are going well with her,” he is quoted as telling De Telegraaf.

 

“In the last two years, a number of clubs wanted to sign me, but we were not willing to take Dolce away from that hospital and her doctors.

 

“Everton did not understand that – they thought that I was just staying here for the money.

 

“Dolce was the reason that I wanted to stay, but that was not apparent to them.

 

“We can move Dolce now, so we have plenty of options, including the Netherlands.

 

“I am running on the treadmill every day and I’m fully fit – and, for once, I hope to stay fit for a while.

 

“Moyes is a worthless man who tried to destroy me, but he didn’t succeed. You cannot write me off.”

 

He added: "For the fans and players, I hope Everton win the FA Cup.

 

“Would I begrudge the coach winning it? I don’t want to say anything about that.

 

“Wayne Rooney also said something about him and he ended up facing a lawsuit."

 

Van der Meyde believes he has not been given a chance to prove himself at the club.

 

"Last summer, I had a good pre-season, but just before the start of the campaign I suffered a six-centimetre tear in my hamstring,” he said.

 

“When I was fit, I was hardly given any opportunities.

 

“On several occasions, I was told that I would be in the squad on the Saturday, but then when I arrived at the stadium, I would end up in the stands.”

 

Van der Meyde has also played down reports that he has issues with drinking.

 

"I don’t deny that I occasionally like to go out in the city, but it is nonsense to suggest that I don’t know how a professional is supposed to behave," he said.

 

Van der Meyde has been linked with a move to Blackburn.

I really do hope that his little girl is well and on the road to recovery but it just strikes me that all the time he was here she was to unwell to be moved and now his contract is out she is well enough to be transferred to much of a coincidence for me.

 

I suppose we put that bottle to his lips everytime he got sloshed and set traps in training so he could get injured, I always liked him as he had the potential but after reading that i hope he rots on Blackburns bench.

Ive always respected VDM but I can clearly see now he is a Nobjock.

 

Same. I was quite gutted that he left because he always seemed like a good player when he played. We certainly didn't get the best out of him and it's a real shame how his Everton career panned out. Best Wishes to him with Blackburn Rovers but what he said in that interview was a bit naughty, at times Moyes was right to leave him on the bench.

 

is he gone yet lol

 

Contract has officially expired.

surely VDM will go down as one of Evertons biggest enigmas, people like him I'm sure will have Moyes looking more closely at all aspects of a player before he signs him.

That old phrase "take a chance" on a player, players like Barton (with his mental problems), Owen (with his injury problems).....does reflect that it really is about, taking a chance!!

 

Does work with some....Cahills knee problems, obviously not with good old VDM.He (VDM) took a swipe at Moyes with that interview, did Moyes leave him out when he was fit?

 

When Moyes writes his book! you can be certain he will take a few swipes at certain people, VDM being an interesting paragraph or two.Will it be the truth :rolleyes:
