At that price, worth a go. Then again, I'd rather give Vellios a chance

 

 

Got an impressive goals to games ratio and seems like a kid with a future and can only improve, so may be worth a chance.

To be honest, I think if Vellios were any good , he'd have gotten more of a chance by now.

Dunno, theres a fair bit of competition for the lone striker at the moment.

He's not even making the bench. He didn't even make the bench when Kone was injured and Lukaku was ineligible... Mirallas played upfront when Jelavic came off.

I haven't seen much of him but I bet you will see a lot of people jumping on the "Beraniho band wagon" saying he is quality because he scored the winner against United. He seems like a guy who has a eye for goal but is young. I would want to see more of him before making any rash decisions.

That was because we wanted to play counter attacking football and Jelavic wouldnt have suited the way we would have wanted to play.

 

Although I agree with your original point, I dont think we are going to see much of him now but I dont see a problem with that now considering we have much more depth in that area.

There's not a chance in hell we'll be signing him.

Agreed. He's a great little player though.

Needs to do it for a bit longer for me. Admittedly he's been on fire this season but he scored five in thirty-two games last season; football is littered with players who had a hot streak and then disappeared without trace. Hope he does well though, like it when players come from backgrounds like his and succeed.

Didn't we all think that about Rom though?

 

You really think we'll spunk another £20m on a single player? I don't see us doing that for some time. The latter point though; you could be right. Although, Rom only wanted to play in the PL and we were the only PL club after him. Whereas United, Liverpool, Spurs etc are being linked with Berahino.

Bit like Andros Townsend, and Sterling when he first broke through last season. Both disappeared for a long time and only the latter has made headlines in recent months.

I compare them to James McClean and unsurprisingly a lot of people don't remember him.

 

I'm with MikeO on this one.

Andros Townsend just isn't that good. Even when people were creaming over him I couldn't understand the hype.

Surely its better to get him in now before his price does rocket beyond our reach?

 

Hmmmm. Well, yeah. If it's a cheap £5-10 million I suppose. But it won't be, WBA will want more won't they?

 

But then, he hasn't really done anything yet. He's had a good start to the season but who knows? So many 'flash in the pan' then....nothing again.

 

He looks an interesting player. He certainly has high aims for himself. Very ambitious and naively honest with the press. Stop talking and keep playing!!!

When we played QPR at Goodison, every time he got the ball he looked dangerous, in fact very dangerous. When he runs at full pelt and comes inside from the right he's very good. There is definitely potential of a top player in there.

 

The only thing for me though.... He a bit like forest gump.... He can run but I don't think he knows when to put the breaks on.

These posts are funny. The names on the fringes of first team football who you just know won't make it, but there's always someone who does.

Agreed I just couldn't get excited about him.

 

He had a good run of form scored a screamer for England and that's about it really.

Because he's already too pricey for us, and I think he'd be setting his sights higher than us in all honesty.

 

 

We have a great reputation for developing young players and giving them a chance and would he even get a game if he went to one of the top 4 sides?

 

Chelsea and City have been a graveyard for promising young players so he might not fancy that

 

Added to that he will know the likes Barkley, Galloway, Garbutt and Stones from the England setup so I don't think its beyond the realms of possibility that he might actually fancy playing for a club like ours

Hopefully he would have a brain in his head and think about it logically like that, but footballers like that tend to be in the minority. Young ones especially.

I stand by the statement. I had faith in the kid, I think he deserved a chance. Shame his attitude let him down.

 

Mark, Townsend had a purple patch and scored some stunners, thats what I was getting at. The media blow any little success of an English player into the stratosphere and I'm concerned its the same with Berahino.

The sad thing is that Townsend is still probably the best English 'winger' we have. He is limited but at least he does what you need him to do.

 

I like Berahino. His movement is sharp, technically sound, works hard and can finish. His contribution in games needs to improve because he is one of those players that can struggle to get on the ball but he is young and that will improve.

I'd take A.Johnson over him to be honest, but I know what you mean about Townsend.

Blasphemy...walk yourself straight to the negative thread.

Not blasphemy Shukes old son just knowing and understanding our place in the grand scheme of things.

 

It's Kopite speak to insist you're still the best, Evertonians are much more educated than that and realise where we are at.

Haha I know we need to retain a little realism but in my mind....we are the biggest team in the world and that will never change.

 

There is no other team as important and I'm sure we all agree.

I actually think he's a decent player. Can certainly score a few. His attitude stinks (it seems or maybe ill advised) but for the right price and right management he could be very good.

hes another Ravel Morrison for me; could be a big hit if he wasn't a bigger brat

I don't think he's anywhere near the disruptive figure Morrison is. WBA fans I know rate Berahino very highly and understand he's a level way above them. He's a natural goal scorer - can't ever have too many of them in your squad.
