Wright's Wrong..

Recommended Posts

DAVID MOYES has admitted he is losing faith in Richard Wright as a replacement for Nigel Martyn.


The Everton manager admitted at last night's AGM that he is already on the look-out for a new goalkeeper to replace Martyn, and is hoping to bring one in before the end of this season.


Martyn has been outstanding since moving to Merseyside from Leeds two years ago, but the former England goal-keeper turns 40 next summer and is not a long-term option.


Wright was a £3.5million capture from Arsenal three years ago but has barely had a look-in over the past two seasons due to injury and Martyn's form.


The 28-year-old is yet to figure since he conceding 10 goals during Everton's final two games of last season.



Moyes admitted: "Richard Wright has played and has not done as well as he should have and has been told that by me. "Nigel has been terrific and is still oustanding, but it is becoming an issue. Richard will get another opportunity somewhere, but we will be looking to bring in a new goalkeeper by the end of the season."



As well as Martyn, the Everton manager praised the performances this season of Mikel Arteta and Joseph Yobo, and was fierce in his defence of underfire club captain David Weir, claiming that the side's shift from a 4-1-4-1 to a 4-4-2 formation earlier this season had made the defender's job considerably harder.



Moyes also defended his success in the transfer market over the summer, candidly admitting: "I knew we couldn't finish fourth again. If you look at the players we brought in, we brought them in with the intention to improve us."

it does frustrate me that we buy up all the promising young keepers we can find then get out on the look out for a new keeper!


i accept that their young but I do want to see them get their chance one day. I'd be pretty pissed off if they stayed for 3 or 4 years going out on loan then both left.

I agree Fairwooney.


The other thing is when you look in the past about all the promising goalkeepers that we have signed (wright Simmonson) and none of them become anything.


Is Turner and Ruudy going the same way
