Recommended Posts

is anyone else worried about the fact that we only have one goalkeeper with real premiership experience.

your killing of our goal keepers with clicks of figures here id like to think weve had enough bad luck with freak injurys allready. TC & JV

 

imo Id rather have ruddy or turner in vs bayern than no strickers or mids to play or no full backs for that matter.

 

i still belive goal keeper is the least of our worrys ;)

Turner was superb against manchester utd but made one mistake

 

the reviews he was getting at sheffield wednesday gives me confident that he could be a great keeper in the future

 

the goalkeeping situation is the least of our worrys...

 

baines signs and our defence is complete

midfield is fine (fingers crossed that vogel signs aswell)

if beattie leaves, we need a striker

Rumours say that Everton is interested in goalkeeper Stefan Wessels (28) from Cologne.. In his young years he was the reserve keeper behind Oliver Kahn at Bayern Munich, was then transfered to Cologne and amazed all of us with sheer mediocrity. Last season he extended his contract at Cologne by two years because manager Christoph Daum had promised him to be the number 1 furthermore - just a few days after that we signed a contract with colombian keeper Mondragon so now Wessels is free to go.

 

Just like Oliver Kahn he's a good one on the line and totally fails when it comes to qualities in the penalty area. Could be a good reserve keeper for you, not more.

Rough translation:

Stefan Wessels might leave Cologne soon. "Bild" newspaper reports he traveled to Everton as a reaction on his degradation by Colognes manager Christoph Daum who lets #1 Mondragon also play in the DFB-Cup.

Wessels announced a step like this some time ago: "Certainly i'm disappointed, we had another deal", the 28 year old said after Mondragon hat been confirmed as the new #1 in Cologne.

It's unclear if Wessels could accomplish in England. Evertons actual goalkeeper is John Howard vom Manchester United, but rumours say his manager isn't satisfied with him.

Aye, what we really need is a striker to replace beattie and some world class Central midfielder worth 11m (not naming any names), because to be honest i dont fancy having a central midfield partnership of carsley and neville. No disrespect to the players but i would prefer a more creative approach :)

Phil Neville and Lee Carsley ARE our defensive midfielders, it's then upto Mikel Arteta, Leon Osman, Tim Cahill, Andy V.D. Meyde, Steven Pienaar and Manuel (if we get him) to surround those players and be the creative ones.

I agree that we need to buy another striker though, maybe not urgently, but we do. We still have pace in A.J. and we have the strentgh to hold the ball up in Victor, don't you agree???

I disagree with you about the urgency to sign another striker, what happens if AJ gets injured tomorrow? Also we are going to lose big Vic when the Nigeria games come around that leavws Faddy & Luke , now that sounds desperate enough for me!

Are you mad? Neville is a far better defensive midfielder, at least he is two footed and more mobile than Jan Molby wanna be Carsley. As for a new Goal keeper, I have faith in Turner.

i believe wessels has been signed so that ruddy and turner can again both go on loan. I would loan turner to sheff wed again as they really adore him and he played so well for them. I was speaking to an owls fans recently and he was nearly bowing at my feet that we loaned him to them. Ruddy can go anywhere iam sure he can handle it.

I think they'll understand.. I reckon Wessels has been signed because he has European experience.. he's won:

 

DFB Liga-Pokal: 1999, 2000

Bundesliga: 2000, 2001, 2003

DFB Pokal: 2000, 2003

Champions League: 2001

Intercontinental Cup: 2001

2. Bundesliga: 2005

 

and was runner up in the European Super Cup a few years back.

many of them he wont have even played in though, hope he's decent.

i feel sorry for turner, not so much ruddy cos he is still young, he has a future hear, pretty much we have told turner he is not needed

 

No we haven't...? We have bought an extra keeper in as cover. If Howard gets injured then Turner is in goal, who would be the backup in that situation?? Young ruddy with no Prem experience, too big a risk.

 

I don't feel sorry for Turner, this will give him a push to prove himself and not drop the ball...

Harsh!

 

I think after his performances last season out on loan and the fact that Sheff Wed wanted to sign him full time this is a bit of a kickin the nuts for Turner. Moyes should have more confidence, Ruddy is apparently as good if not better than Turner in training and did a great job when called upon against Blackburn so I'd feel secure with Turner in goal and Ruddy on the bench should the unthinkable happen and Howard got injured. Plus don't forget Warnock never had a sub keeper on the bench last season cos Jags is that good in goal so theres always EMERGENCY cover there!!
