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."
