Moyes Admits We're Skint

Recommended Posts

Everton manager David Moyes has admitted that although he would like to add more players to his current crop of players, he does not have the money to compete with 'the top end' of the Premiership.

 

While this will come as no surprise to most Evertonians, some are starting to question why we have no money. Currently, Everton have only spent £4m bringing in Phil Jagielka but with the sale of Simon Davies to Fulham for £3m in January and Gary Naysmith for £1m only last week, European qualification, extra television money on top of the wages of David Weir, Richard Wright and Alessandro Pistones all being removed from the wage budget, fans had hoped that the club would be more active in the transfer window and are growing increasingly inpatient.

 

David Moyes: "We'd like to add to the squad and I know the supporters are desperate to see new faces coming in, no more so than me, but things out there in the market are tight,"

 

"But we are certainly doing everything we can to strengthen the squad and give ourselves a chance. We've done it that way for the past few years and we'll continue to do so."

 

"I can understand that because I've been a supporter, in fact I still am a supporter, but we're always quite cagey here and we don't give too much away partly because people know that we don't have the funds to compete at the top end," he said.

 

"I think there has been some irresponsible buying and spending by some clubs and it makes it a bit more difficult if you've got less money to spend than that."

 

What do you think? Is it because of Kenwright? Is it Wyness or Moyes fault? maybe even Pierluigi Collinas fault?, or smaller clubs fault for paying ridiculous money for average players?

I think its a political response, simple really. What do you expect him to say " yer, weve got 15mil to spend but I want to buy three players with that so Ive got to be carefully, specially with tossers paying the likes of £5 mil for chopra and that piece of shit from Wbrom who went to Fulham"

 

As he said " but we're always quite cagey here and we don't give too much away "

hink the most important bit was

 

"We've done it that way for the past few years and we'll continue to do so.".

 

So it looks like were settling for a squad 2 players shy of last year then?

the same thing we hear every summer.

i'll reserve my judgement for next may

Agreed.

 

In the event that we don't get any more players, the ones who haven't performed so far had better do or we are fooked.

it's a combination of things i think:

 

1. Kenwright clearly does not have the resources to run a prem club.

 

2. Moyes and his reluctence to persue the foreign market (better bargins to be had imo)

 

3. Lack of communication with fans, which just winds everyone up, then people start wanting to sack the board, manager, etc. If they were a bit more honest then the fans would understand more, but were always so cagey with everything.

 

4. Yes, some of the other teams do seem to spending stupid money this summer, but that seems to happen in this country, hence the reason wenger shops abroad.

Im probably wrong, but im gunna have to question some of these mate.

 

1. we know kenwright doesnt have the resources to run the club financially or general business like. thats why he brought bully in to run the club.

2. there is a bigger risk with bringing in foreign players, also why they are cheaper imo. a proven player in a proven league will command a premium.

3. i take total issue with this one! why do we have to know everything that goes on? being a bit more honest? wtf! they are a business! we are just customers! the more they tell us about whats going on, the more they tell their competitors! we have no right to know whats goin on! and the people who want to start sacking people because of this really need a better understanding of business!

4. 100% agree with this one, and the time and money invested by wenger on his scouting system! he has had his contacts for a lot longer than moyes remember! it didnt happen over night

Everton FC - "The Peoples Club"

 

Listen, yes we are customers of a business. To keep customers, and gain customers, you need to satisfy their demand...our demand is better players and success. We have had no clear sign of good, quality signings and the messages out of Everton FC so far have all been negative bar Jags signing.

 

Now a young boy at school can't decide between Everton & Liverpool to support. He is blinded by "Liverpool have signed this that and the other", Everton sign 1 player. The hype surrounding Liverpool's signings sways him and he is now a customer of Liverpool FC. So messages from a "business" are bloody important...

I agree Stevo if you mean bo@@ocks as in what has been said today by DM.

 

think its all club talk for give me some time then you can moan come the 1st September when we have not signed anyone else.

 

He has gone from 5 weeks ago saying that he wants to be very active in the transfer market to saying we got 1 and want another 1 or 2 signings to saying people are spending to much to saying there is not much around at the moment apart from bein to expensive.

 

its the same stuff every year.

To be fair the analogy of a football fan to a customer isn't accurate. Fans are never going to jump ship if they aren't happy with a product or service.

 

In any case, large companies have to employ PR staff to build loyalty and trust keeping customers informed about new products, improvements and developments. I think our blind loyalty's taken far too much for granted by Kenwright and his board.

Don't think so !!

 

Just listening to TalkSport and they are talking like we are fucking relegation fodder.

 

For christ sakes, we finished 6th last year and should have been 5th without Cahill for most of the season, Johnson for the run-in and fuck all contribution from Beattie and VDM. We sold Wright, Naysmith and Pistone all whom prob most of this forum would have happily parted with.

 

Expect Moyes was looking at 2 or 3 players to bring in. Nugent and Koumas went for way too much money for their worth and both are totally unproven at Prem level. Think Moyes may be resetting his expectations because the average players are too expensive and maybe he will go for 1 massive signing instead and possibly get Fernandes back on loan as nobody seems close to buying him from Benfica.

 

I wonder if with only one signing likely, no movement of Beattie and VDM then we could be looking at a single midfielder to add to Jags and hopefully Manny back. Don't think Moyes will spend 6 mill on Baines when he has Valente and Lescott plus Boyle at a push. If he keeps Beattie, he prob figures that with Vaughan and Anichebe he has more than enough - so Smith would be out.

 

That could mean that a single deal for a midfielder - and I still reckon we have around 12 mill in hand. How about our old friend, Juan Roman Riquelme. He wasn't happy at a big club like Barca before, won't go back to Villarreal and the Villarreal setup was a lot like Everton (local fan base, team on the up) so possibly we could have a chance. Boca cannot afford to keep him either.

 

I heard that Athletico Madrid were interested during the semi commentary but they also were talking about how he could make it in the Prem with the right team. Nobody is being linked with him unlike 2 years ago.

 

Maybe there is a chance !! He is quality as well - I would be ecstatic if we got him, Jags and Manny back on loan.

One new signing? Still optimistic Liam? Fuckinghell I hope Moyes is bullshitting.

 

You can read whatever you want into that or any other news story Mark I'v explained where I'm comming from repeatedly. At this moment in time I can honestly say I wouldnt want my manager behaving in any other way than Moyes is now.

 

1. We have a squad now that has qualified for Europe 2 out of 3 seasons

2. We are not being mugged by seccond rate players, greedy agents or piss taking clubs.

3. This "dithering Davey" attitude is what has brought stability & progress to my club for the first time since I was a small child.

 

Long may it continue I say!

I think we all knew we were skint, the board has always struggled to bring in money. We could be facing a tough season after letting players run out of contract before getting rid. We are down 3 players from wright, pistone and naysmith. Admittably no big loss, but selling Wright before he was out of contract would have been better than nothing.

 

We sell our players too cheap as well. in todays market an international like naysmith should have got more than £1m, but I guess thats just speculation on price as there was prob some agreement with the blades.

 

We will still have a decent side as long as there are no injuries, but other players must look at Everton and think why do I want to go there the board dont seem to show ambition (getting in the players and taking a risk). They dont look like they are willing to progress.

 

The club may be stable/progressing in the league but still doesnt get the backing to make the next step, theres only a limited amount of progression a club can do without money before they stall. Further more the players we have got at the moment will become frustrated if the club doesnt look like they want to become big. Which will mean them wanting to leave next season.

KillaGTiR - I agree with you they wont be missed but in todays market i would have hoped we got a bit more money for them, not just let them run down their contract and go for nothing or next to nothing.

Question... is Manny Fernandes still on loan with us? For how long, and are we negotiating a permanent move? Perhaps that's where a lot of the transfer money is going?

Im still thinking Alan Smith but think it all depends on the Tevez deal .......tits up at the moment then

 

Is that are 1 BIG signing????

 

I really do think he will settle for his current starting eleven now... if so BT best get his finger out.. dont think we can depend on the youngeters especially if we have a bad start to the season

 

At least we should be adding numbers to the squad... why havent we done that..... still 2 players down at the moment....

 

That what we all seem to be missing.... forget the big targets where are the smaller signings we all expected just to bolster the numbers....

Dm has said that he can make one good signing but in the same breath said that there is not alot out in the position he is looking for and what there is is to expensive.

 

Stubbs has come out and said that he beleives that Dm is happy with the squad but would add to it if possible.

 

For me all pointing to that we will start the season with the players we have got and if not going well near the end of August then expect some signings to come in. If doing well DM will stick the the players that he has got.

What really gets to me about us being 'skint' is that Spurs are now close to signing yet another player for over 10m.

 

SWP from Spurs along with a left winger for 8m from A Madrid.

 

And we can't even afford a couple of decent players and they have spent over 30m already.

 

And also DM can come out and say that there is not a lot of players out in the positions we are looking for. Well my reply to that is LOOK HARDER

whats the point in getting loads of shite players just to have numbers, we have got a team of talented youngsters who would be alot better options than buying any old shite player, just because our squad is quite small everyone thinks its the end of the world it not

Yes I do now feel, That as Evertonians we shall forever & from this point be forced to refer to "The Transfer Window" period as " The Poker face Window".

 

Consequently then, I Cant argue with the suits that be in regards to this apparent Sale's time policy that has now been in place the last few windows.

 

In this instance I can take being a Mushroom, until the egg has hatched.

After reading today that we are trying to do a player + cash offer for baines, i have to say i am starting to have serious concerns at the overall financial state of the club, we look as though we are in a right mess and that it just seems to be getting worse not better. I think BK should stick to showbiz, and leave football to the big boys, he knows that he'll get a lifetime season ticket and a free plate of prawn sarnies each week. :D

C'mon lads, it is mostly the squad with which we achieved more than we could have expected for last season and we are in Europe. Let's get behind them and be positive. Yeh we are disppointed with notbringing in big names but we are EVERTON, with the greatest supporters in the world. I keep looking at my tkts for seeing them at Selhurst (ok my son's a CPAL supporter, sorry he was born in the south) but I love this club and negative comments aren't going to help.

agree with the above, too many negative and bk bashing comments on here

 

how quickly people turn, if it wasnt for him we would have done a leeds and ended up in a proper mess looking forward to an away trip at yeovil

 

people say him and wyness are a bad combo...confused. if it wasnt for them, this kirkby deal wouldnt be on the table ? didnt bk employ davie moyes, who is quickly becoming one of our best ever managers ? a manager, imo, who will be talked about in the same league as harry catterick and howard kendall in years to come.

 

i dont see what all the big fuss is about us haggling over transfer fees, why not ?? if you know a player is unsettled and wants to join you, why not use that as a bargaining tool ? i work for npower and when we discuss new contracts with large suppliers, do you think we give in to the first offer ? no way, we haggle over every last detail to save money - its good business practice

 

dont forget, its not just the transfer fee the club has to pay, theres the signing on fee and then the wages on top. so why not try to save a few pennies on the transfer fee ?

 

yes we are not cash rich but we are hardly boston utd !!

 

if we save two mill on this deal and ship out one of our squad players, we can re-invest the saved money on getting other players in (paying for vogels signing on fee etc)

These big signings everyone wants!!.......you mean the ones like Kroldrup!...

...VDM!......Beattie!.My point is every BIG signing is a BIG risk.We missed out on

Parker last year,where did Newcastle finish?

We finished higher than Blackburn last season....and that after they beat us to

McCarthy!Plus the numerous other teams who spent big money last year.Spending

money doesn't guarantee success,as West Ham will discover this season.

For some reason Moyes doesn't have much money to spend....there's nothing you

can do about that...ok! stop going!.....Then he's got less!!

Get behind the the squad we've got....and the manager who for how he's turned us

around from a few seasons back,deserves our support.

That £300million stadium the rs are having built,it will end up at nearer £400million

by the time it's done.....and they need to win many trophies,and fill every seat for

the yanks to get their money back.......by the time they get to their kopless stadium

Gerrard may be passed his best....OH DEAR!!

 

We beat teams last season,who had spent more than us!......we can do it again this

season.
