jtooley Posted June 16, 2007 Report Share Posted June 16, 2007 I wonder whether Moyesey had a pretty good idea that when he said that there prob wouldn't be any quick transfers like last year's transfer window, he knew that the market would be massively over-priced as per the value of Darren Bent. Also if his targets were Nugent, Baines - then they are both on U21 duty and starting any offer process whilst they are away givs other clubs the chance to get into the game. If Davey was trying to get Joey Barton and he was, then he and Bill made a good decision when talk of doubling his wages began. We don't pay anyone more than 40 and to bring Barton in on 50 plus would have been really bad for the dressing room which is so important to our team. I think we will get Jagielka after Monday and he will be an excellent signing, fitting in well to the team and providing us with good cover and options at the back and in central mid. After that and the U21s are done, then I think you will see us trying to get Baines and Nugent at reasonable prices - Baines 3 mill and Nugent 5 mill. Nugent can after all play out his last year and sign for us next year for nothing or at Christmas for half the price that is being asked now. Also think Davey is interested in Koumas at the right price which is prob about 4 mill as he will give him some answers and creativity on the left side. I also think Davey will want another midfield player as he has let Kilbane, Davies go and brought effectively nobody in. Also Shandy Andy will leave so he needs more cover. Not sure who else he might look at to cover the additional midfielder maybe Tonge again or even Sean Davis as both appear to be available at the right price which would be between 2 and 3 mill each. As a wildcard - maybe we could get Riquelme from Villarreal, he's on loan back to Argentina and couldn't hold down a place in Spain last year. Maybe a season long loan - there is no news about him linking him with anybody. Hopefully Davey is playing the market the right way - we don't want to pay way over the odds for average players - we need the right types of players for Everton.
