Summer Requirements -- Merged

Recommended Posts

I woulden't like us to spend money (in large amounts) on a new goalkeeper. Nash hasn't been needed so there is no real point spending millions on a player that we might not even use. Carlo is not bad as a keeper so he would do well at playing when needed (when Howard is out) so it's not a requirement IMO.

 

RB is though, unless we sign Jacobsen.

A wide midfielder has to be our number one priority. We have three players who (though not brilliantly) can play at rightback, Hibbert, Neville and Jacobson. We also have that young irish lad and also I do believe that Gosling came here as a right back.

 

However wide players are seriously lacking. Pienaar and Gosling are the only players who can do it, and Gosling is not ready yet, give him a few years and we'll see if he is the real deal or not. But players like Osman are not wide players, all he does is cut inside, I don't think we have ever tried to beat a man with a ball on the right hand side of the pitch this season.

 

Right back position needs to be improved, but the priority has to be a wide man. Also I think that a new forward is important as we have all seen the problems we have had this year.

we need pace out wide i believe pienaar can handle it due to the fact he has baines who is fair quick and a few tricks up his own sleeve but osman isn't as skillful so can't handle it out there. arteta got away with it due to his skill but we need a fast winger left or right to be honest would be fine by me!

For me right back is covered and striker is covered.I am not sure why we need a new striker when we have proved we can cope with the most extreme injury'sto strikers so I would actualy pool most of our funds and spend quite big on a carsley replacement and a decne t right winger.

The striker situation becomes trickier when Jo leaves. We then have the following: Yak, Saha, Vaughn, Vic.

 

Yak- though class, will take a long time to get back to fitness and there is no guarentee he will returen to the player he was last season

Saha- Injury prone

Vaughn- Still unproven goal scorer and injury prone

Vic- Crap.

 

I think we need to bring someone in the cement the forward line. Obviously the likes of Cahill and Mo can step in, but its not really the same.

As it has been said, options on the right wing and a little more creativity in midfield. I think with that, if Pienaar keeps playing like he does (esp. with Bainesy) and Arteta and the Jak get back into action, we'd have made good progress, and have a midfield that could feed goals to the likes of Jak and Saha, as well as grab a few for themselves.

 

One thing I've been thinking about lately is the Joe Ledley rumours, a left footed winger, would it be worth bringing in a left footed winger and breaking up the working partnership of Peinaar and Baines? Would Peinaar be able to get a similar partnership working on the right with Jacobsen (who for sure we should sign up for another year at least)?

 

Another thing which is a cause for concern, I heard mentioned somewhere that the winner of the Europa League would have to play an extra 17 games to get to the final. I don't think we have at the moment a squad big enough to go the distance, so we would really need to add some squad players too, perhaps bring some of the youngsters up as well.

 

I wouldn't mind at all if we sold Anichebe, but to be honest I can't see it happening, at least not this summer. I think right back is covered, as long as we get Jacobsen on a longer deal, and as for strikers, it would be nice to see another one come in (not Owen or Crouch), but that's not our top, top priority.

 

edit: slight digression..... Kenwright is in talks with three players over contract extensions (Link), Jags is one of them, anyone know the other two. My guess is Jacobsen and ..... dunno!! any ideas?

i dont think we should sell any forwards really i mean anichebe isnt the greatest but he can do a job when he comes in and seems to have good impact in europe he got us through a few matches that he turned around. also i dont think he'd mind bein used when needed so wouldnt get hissy about it. yeah it is 17 extra games to win the thing its ridiculous really considering the money you get for it. ive been impressed with jacobsen i mean he aint gonna set the world alight as hes been injured for so long but hes the number 1 rb for denmark and they aint no mugs so he must have something and i think if he worked on his end product a bit more cos he got in some good positions against west ham. as for the contract i think pienaar will be one too as he only got a contract until 2011

i think your right he is pretty shit and seams to be a bit of a child still if i'm honest (bust up with moysey), so getting rid could defo be best option. I did hear he might be going to cardif on loan as part of the deal for ledley. if this came off it might be best for both us and him though as he might do quite well in the championship, he is strong as he showed playing liverpool but hes not deadly infront of goal....yet? also he might come back a bit more experienced and mature. meaning we get a decent striker in a few years, and he gets time on the pitch to hone his skills. i might be well off mark here and he may prove to be a donkey for the rest of his career but its an interesting thought.

 

also we could get this fletcher guy from scotland fairly cheap who is at least confident infront of goal (-so therefore better than vic) didn't he almost score an overhead kick last weekend against celtic?

Defensive Midfielder

Winger

Creative Midfieler

Striker

 

How much does everyone think we have to spend?

 

I would love moyes to Sign Dzeko from Wolfsburg, he would bang in 20 goals a season no problem, the only problem is that a few big teams have been looking at him and I think he would cost at least 10 million

 

why not go in for Nani on loan, Fergy gets on with moyes and im sure he would loan us him because Park & Anderson get in the team before him.

 

one player I would really like us to sign when middlesbrough go down is Digard, Ive been impressed with him but I think he got injured, when he came to goodison he looked good, surely no more than 5 million, he's alot better than the Sean Davis's and the Stephen Hunts imo and finally we would have a centermidfielder who have a long range of passing and not just 10-20 yards :)

 

(-so therefore better than vic) didn't he almost score an overhead kick last weekend against celtic?

saw that...good effort like

not sure, wont be much though,

we did get that 30 mil from the kit bag deal...but if moysey will see any of that i'm not sure.

each season we have beat our transfer record but can't see us doing it this summer unless there is an investor or takeover on the horizon.

The 3 players are Jags , Yobo , and Howard .

 

 

 

As for requirements :

 

Goalkeeper : Think we are ok with what we have .

 

What I do think we need :

 

Left-back cover for Baines

Right-back cover for Hibbert ( possibly from existing squad )

Full-back cover for Lescott / Jags ( Mancienne ? )

Defensive mid

Creative mid

Right winger ( Pennant ? )

2 strikers ( 1 first team and 1 cover )

Sounds alot but unfortunately, i thinnk your right. To even contemplate breakin the so called 'top4' we need depth and creativity. The ones ive highlighted i thinkwould need to be 'top draw' to improve our 1st team further. top-draw bein crtically acclaimed and proven internationals!

that would be great as a winger .. another player i've always loved on the wing is Joaquin .. anyone know anything about his availability?

i wonder if pienaar would have the same impact playing from the right .. he's so good at cutting inside and creating things in the middle of the field.

 

still wouldn't mind if there was a GK out there that could put some pressure on howard .. i think he's been poor quite a few games this season.

You also need a bigger squad, imo. Alternatives are what kept Everton away this season, plagued by injuries, forced to play with different tactics. And that means not selling a lot more than it means buying. With shity sure to make a summer fest, I think it's very important to keep a powerful enough squad to stand up to them, and maintain an Europe position next year. Not to mention, of course, having a decent Euro run next season as well.

 

And with international games starting as soon as July, you CANNOT have a repeat of last year, with last minute purchases that will most likely not be available for Europe.

 

I just want a proper winger and a solid defensive midfielder as priorities. Bentley and Cana would do me.

 

Miguel Veloso is very likely to leave this year, and he's a very powerful DM. Although his release fee is €30M, he's gonna go for way less, I expect, and I'd rather see him in Everton than shity.

 

As for a winger, Nani had a poor year, and few chances to prove himself. I think SAF might consider a loan, and since he and Veloso are very good friends, playing together since the youth teams, getting them together would be a very good deal for Everton.

GK - Howard/ Nash/ Ruddy/ Turner - fine

RB - Hibbert/ Jacobsen/ Coleman - Jac may go, who know's on coleman - (1) first team player needed

LB - Baines/ Nuno - Nuno may go - back up required - (1) back-up

CB ® - Jags/ Yobo - perfect

CB (l) - Lescott - (2) left footed centre back back-up

RM - Osman/ Gosling - (2) first team players needed

LM - Pienaar - (3) left footed winger back-up

CM - Nev/ Rodwell (1) player to push for a start straight away

CM - Arteta/ Felli/ Cahill - maybe back-up between the 2 positions

AM - Cahill/ Felli - maybe back-up between the 2 positions

ATT - Yak/ Saha/ Vaughan/ Vic - Vic may go - ??? on fitness - (2) player to push for a start straight away

 

So for me we need:

First team...

Right back

Right mid or left mid (pienaar could switch)

 

Push for a start (loan signings?)...

Def mid

Striker

 

Back-up/ for the future...

Left back

Centre back

Left mid or right mid

Centre mid

 

Any suggestions?

a proper wide player and a proven quality central midfielder would make us a very formidable force, starting 11 anyway. and squad players all over the pitch.

In my opinion:

 

Right Midfield/Wing - Standing on the side of realism, Bentley seems like a bad choice. He has had fuck all games for Spurs and although still a good player, would cost far too much for what he would bring to the squad. Someone like Juan Mata out of Valencia would be good, young fast and a good eye for goal, and Valencia will have to ship out players in the summer. Either him or Manny Fernandes and shift Pienaar across.

 

Defense Midfield - We need cover as Neville has at least 1 or 2 seasons left in him in the current everton line-up. I wouldn't mind going back in for M'Bia at a reasonable price, or trying for Cana. 2 players with enough experience and power to add a drive to the team.

 

I think with Jags, Yobo and Lescott, the defense is ok, someone like Mancienne on loan is a good idea, and securing Jacobsen means we have 3 options for right-back. A left back would also be a good idea, however Lescott can play there if Baines is injured.

 

Keepers where fine, just look at what Round has said about Nash, constantly pushing Howard for the first team spot. And if Howard is injured, I'm sure Nash can cope.

 

Attacking, well, we have a dilemma, The Yak may come back stronger than ever, or he may suck. We know we can't rely on Saha unless he is well fed by midfield, and while I like Vaughn and appreciate Anichebe's hold up play, neither have been prolific in front of goal when they have played.

 

This is the one place where we will need to be extra careful with money, as a flop would hit us hard. Ebanks-Blake set the Championship on fire, but I know many players that have and then not succeeded in the Premier League, on goals scored we should go for McCormack from Cardiff who netted 24, however I doubt McCormack would be as fortunate in the Prem, same goes for Ebanks-Blake.

Hargreaves shmargreaves .

Saw him play well once for England , and not seen much since .

 

Blakes I've always been up for .

 

if hargreaves is fit he's an england starter.

 

just going to say same as most people

 

1stly need a right winger

2nd a defensive mid, nev has done well this year but we need someone to push us to the next level (i dont want veloso either)

3rd striker we need a good striker to provide competition for the yak

4th right back ...quality player to start week-in-week-out

5th left back, cover

 

so as romey said, bentley and cana/mbia and i'm happy, get couple of frees or loans elsewhere

Hargreaves would be a great signing if you ask me. He's been unlucky this year because of a very bad knee injury, but when he is on form he would be a great asset to the squad. It won't happen though.

Arteta 10M ( Man City ) - Yes hes brilliant , but he isint going to retire at Everton . Get a good fee while we can

Anichebe 1-2M- He's good but wont get into starting 11

Van Der Meyde 1M - Hes just rubbish

David Bentley 5M - Good player decent cross - replace for Arteta

Micheal Owen ? - If Newcastle get relegated , he will want PL football - ONLY at good price

Arteta would demand a much higher fee than 10m IMO, VDM goes on a free as his contract will be up.

 

I'd welcome Bentley here but 5m is unrealistic. 10m more like. Spurs signed him for 17m I think so would not take a 12m loss in 12 months.

F.A Cup and season is over, now it is pondering time!

 

BUMP btw.

 

Ok, first and foremost, Hibbert chokes against higher opposition. He's great against the mid-table side; against the top 4, he's shit. That's that. Horrible. He can tackle well but he is always off the pace and lacks confidence. Guus Hiddink knew he was a liability and that's why the Chelsea lot sent four men at him. Hibbert wouldn't be sold for much either, he's 28.

 

Lars Jacobsen was much more composed, he would actually get the ball out of danger and attempt play. However, he needs a back up man.

 

I say we keep Hibbert, but only play him when it is neccesary, not against top flight opposition. Jacobsen can't play week in week out and arguably, he is just 'ok', so here is my first priority.

 

Starting XI Fullback or Back up Fullback

 

Hopefully one that can play on the right or the left, as Nuno looks to be going and is aging. Kyle Naughton or Steven Taylor would fit the gap beautifully. However, we only have Baines on the left, and all in all, three centre backs. With money being tight, we need to get the most out of what we got. If the worst happened, if Baines got injured, we could revert Joleon to the left and bring in another centre back. Yobo lacks confidence and it will come back with time, but we still need back up. Mancienne would be nice back up.

 

Back up Centre Back

 

and hopefully

 

Another Fullback, one to back Baines up

 

This will fill any gaps in defence and protect us for the inevitable. But damn, at what price? Everton now have expectations, we have set a standard - it makes you wonder if the board pulls the money out to keep them. I think of it this way, if Baines and Lescott break their legs, what the fuck do we do? I'd expect to see our defence mentioned in transfer rumours the MOST over the next three months.

 

Our midfield is great. Pienaar runs his heart out, Arteta holds up the ball well and at the moment his composure is missed, and Fellaini flicks on headers and is hard to mark (he suffered tonight because nobody was near his flick ons). However, Osman is a liability, and goes quiet in games. Our right side is our weakness. If we are going to challenge the top 4, teams such as Arsenal and Manchester United will take after Guus and attack our liable right side. Osman cuts in way too much and leaves the Right Back exploited too much; a right sided NATURAL winger would do us great, Osman can leave in the summer as he only shows up in 1 out of 5 games - he needs a massive overhaul.

 

Right sided winger

 

In the defensive midfield area, we are fine. Fellaini will eventually mould to that position (going up for corners too to get us goals), Neville fills it well as it is, Rodwell fills it well, and Arteta can fill it as well if need be.

 

Up front, we don't want another striker crisis. Yakubu will be fit and he will be our main man. Awesome. James Vaughan is a very quick lad and will come through the ranks, eventually being striker number 2. Great. Anichebe is getting stronger and he has potential. Great. Louis Saha is sharp in 50 percent of his games, and he is also aging - the problem is, he will only get worse. After this, that leaves Cahill/Fellaini/Baxter to step up, I think we'd be better off with a number 4 natural striker, ye know, just in case. Someone like Jo (improving by the day). Hopefully not another Saha like Michael Owen.

 

Natural Striker

 

That is five things. I'm asking too much. Moyes must have a headache trying to piece together this stuff. :lol:

i enjoyed reading that until "Anichebe is getting stronger and he has potential. Great" i must have missed that revelation

 

He does have potential as he can soar towards goal and hold off 2-3 men. The one thing he needs to work on though is his finishing, but he's 20 and that will come.

Realistically I like to see the following movements:

 

 

IN:

 

Michael Owen - Free/'ish lol - Nobody doubts he's got the talent to play, will need to take a large cut in wages but we are the highest level he could play at.

Kyle Naughton - £5m - Great young right back, definitely better than what we have at the moment.

Joe Ledley - £4m p/Ex - Another young one, undoubted talent, needs a premier league pre-season.

Shkrodan Mustafi - Signed/Free - Straight to the reserves but looked good against England

Anton Peterlin - Signed/?? - Seemingly impressed on trial, 22 so must be at least squad player material/potential for Moyes to sign him.

Luke Garbutt - Free/Compensation - Highly rated at Leeds apparently and as compensation is done over a period of a few years and based on apearances/performances he wouldn't affect our budget.

 

 

 

OUT:

 

Andy Van Der Meyde - Free - Bye bye, thanks for the cross, stop off at the bar before you leave

Jo - Loan Return - 5 in 11 ain't bad.

Castillo - Loan Return - Good player, would like to see him here if he could move cheaply.

Victor Anichebe -Loan p/Ex - Makeweight for Ledley, would be good for him to gain some experience

 

 

 

 

Assuming our budget is around 15-16m+ total this season and allowing that Michael Owen will cost about a million in wages @ 20k/week (What I would offer him) we have about 5-6m+ left out of my transfer list for a right winger or defensive midfield.

Our priority this season IMO is to keep all our best players. in a way, the jagielka, Arteta and Yakubu injuries could be a blessing.

 

Re enforcements:

 

A right back, unless jacobson stays

 

A replacement for Osman.

 

A striker, to replace Jo.

 

Alot of people on here think we need a defensive midfielder, but i think that position is covered pretty good with Neville, Fellaini and Rodwell.

RESERVE GOALKEEPER- Maik Taylor, linked with him last year and with Blues reportedly signing Joe Hart on loan i would go for him as back up.

FULL BACK- Naughton, can play either wing. Quick two footed and english definately can step up. Only stubling block is price.

CENTRE BACK- Mancienne, cover for the boys with more chance of first team football. Loan with option to buy.

MIDFIELD- Maoutino, dynamo. Class in possession, football brain and a leader.

WINGERS-Jaouquin, Valencia are in huge debt worth a loan.

FORWARDS-Owen, depending on wages. No more than thirty grand. Darren Bent- Goalscorer and sniffer can play up front on his own like he did at Charlton and scored goals in a crap team. Still scored alot for spurs this season considering....................

Striker

Backup goalkeeper

 

 

Hi all,

 

I am writing because I like Everton - always have. I watched the Cup final yesterday and was rooting for Everton - my condolences. That said, I couldn't but wonder what David Bentley could have added on the right. I know, he hasn't performed well for Spurs this season but no matter - the kid has the ability to serve given the right direction. And if anyone can do this it is Moyes. He could be a great addition to the Everton squad.

No I don't think he would. He offers little going forward himself and gets caught out of position to often. He is as much a problem as Osman and we need to replace him if we want to kick on. I want Naughton from Sheffield United for RB and Elia from Twente to go on the wing. I'd be fucking delighted if that happend... it wont... but a man can dream.

i also like the bit about him holding off 2-3 men, because i genuinely think he could, if he wasnt already on his arse by the time the ball gets to him.

i'll say again what ive said before, if he has so much potential, why couldnt he get a game when we had no strikers fit apart from him?

 

 

with jamie on this, we need pace big time. all of our pace is with centre halfs. we've had no pace since AJ left

anichebe is good impact and thats it at the moment. i do believe he could get better just not at everton cos he wont play enough. he changed a few games in europe cos of his strength when the other players where tired. granted hes a big strong lad and ive always been a fan but he isnt gonna progress unless he leaves this club on loan or for good. personally id like to see him go away on loan for a season get a seasons games under him then we will see. osman was a late bloomer aswell :)

Completely agree, heard alot of Naughton recently, sounds very promising! Another cheap option, has anyone thought of Justin Hoyte at Boro? now they're down, they may need to gain some money back. He was quality first half of the season, unfortunately when he dipped, the team dipped and it began an uphill struggle after that? Elia tho....immense! still want Mout tho :)

And it just might be the ideal time to buy him ... Van Basten let him out in the cold last few games so I don't think they'll ask more than 10 million ... although the new trainer might think differently.

 

Anyway Vertonghen-Arteta-Fellaini/Cahill would be a very strong central midfield, both in offense and defence!

I'd love Vertonghen as well, however I think that Jol rates him and will not want to let him go. I believe that he tried to sign him when he wa a t Hamburg so I'm guessing that he's a fan. He'd be a great signing though. Seems tohave the right attitude and work-ethic to do well here.

I've got nothing to add to that. Would very much like him at Everton. Only problem is, we should give priority to other positions for re-enforcements
