Vermaelen

Recommended Posts

I didn't realise he'd been on loan at Roma last season - an injury plagued loan. Injury-free, it'd be a no-brainer but what are the chances of that because he's only played a handful of games in the last 4 seasons? Jérémy Mathieu, a left sided centre back, left Barca on a free this summer - surely that would have been a better short term fix.

 

On a separate note, Polly Parsons (Mrs Vermalen) would be an excellent addition to the stands at Goodison.

Seems like another pointless Everton 30+yo defender loanee .

 

We've had a couple of shitters like this before, haven't we?

Better than Anthony Gardner though!

 

Quality wise, it's a no brainer BUT will he ever be fit?

If he stays fit he's a quality player- hopefully Baines will stay fit most of the season so he only plays a handful of games.

 

If he does play- at least we know he's good and experienced.

 

Do you know what? All these if shouts are pissing me off with him. He's been injured for about 5 fucking years!

I'm still alarmed that he was seen as a viable option.

Because whoever we sign wont play regular which means it's difficult to get a player to come knowing they wont play.

 

I'm not saying it's right btw but that'll be a massive part of trying to attract a player- can you sign for us please and just be happy sitting on the bench or playing in the rezzies in case Baines or Williams get injured.

 

That's our main issue mate.

The logic here makes perfect sense: A proven player who can step in from time to time. With a record of injuries, he could not start every week, but that's not a requirement.

Trouble is there's no guarantee he'll be fit for those occasional games.

I know what our issue is, but it makes zero sense to sign someone that can't play. Ever.

 

The whole point of cover is that they can cover.

We're not signing him anyway and I know exactly what you're saying but if he's the only option and we got 15 games out of him- on loan it's viable although not ideal.

 

We've left it way too late

I would put £1000 on him not even making it into double figures for appearances.

 

Thank fuck we're not signing him.
