Midfielder


Recommended Posts

firstly how can we go from fernandes to them. jus stupid.

 

come on graverson has passed it. hes older! command more wages!. would just be stupid. says alot when hes struggling at celtic!

 

and the only club thats linked with him is sheff utd!!!

 

nolan is another goal scoring midfielder we already have one and a better one in timmy!!

 

you dont see him play defence splitting passes do you?!!!!!

 

i would personally go for riquelme get a good 3 years out of him! use the money from fernandes to pay the wages.

 

it then gives us 3 years to find a younger version of him.

 

i would like to think that every manager has a plan B which was manny i guess (afta missing out on lucho) but must have had a plan C!the money is there the last person who would lie to us is DM!!!!

 

ppl need to realsie since we've sold tommy we've got better and moved on, and he's got older and has had his pay day. need some1 with the hunger to succeed!!

taking graverson back would be a big step back in my opinion!

Diego would be class. maybe Pablo Aimar, Jesus Navas, Enzo Maresca or even throw all the money we have left at Lucho Gonzalez might aswell as its almost panic time and he is 100% owned by Porto now (i know our initial bid was a ploy to make Porto buy him outright). i really want to see us sign someone with creativeness not just a hard worker. comes on Moyesee make me proud.

Erm I must have been tired I think I've signed up as a girl which while slightly amusing - er I'm a bloke!

 

If you are refering to the "Toffee Lady" No you havent mate, as time goes by and you post more the name will go through some changes of ex everton players, if you post enough and stay with us long enough you can change it yourself to whoever you want. :)

Come on people.

 

You have seen how long it has taken for us to sign the players this season that we have got.

 

We have got 4 days left to sign a midfielder and we won't even have sent the scouts out by then.

 

If Yak signs he will be our last bit of business this summer.

 

Shame as would like a midfielder like Arteta to help out in midfield but never going to have enough time to get it all sorted without paying over the odds for someone that he would not do earlier on in the transfer window

At least we may end up with a bit of deadline day excitement now....it is the Everton way after all, specially if nothing happens. Last week it was looking like they'd be allowed Friday night off but it looks like the medical team will be in! Stand by your PC's lads :P .

let's just sign gravesen again for 1mil -- he knows the team, the set-up and if he can repeat his form of '04/'05 great, if not he'll be decent enough for some depth on the bench

 

 

Here was me thinking we wanted to buy quality and add to the team. I must have been wrong if people are wanting a has been back. I thought as a football club we were past all that?

Silly boy :lol: cant even get into the celtic side these days.

 

I favour a move for guti tbh, availble after madrid have signed snijder (spelling) and robben

how can replacing one of neville/carsley in midfield with gravesen be going backwards?!?!? you honestly believe they are better, more creative players?

 

it may not be the sort of signing that will take us into the top 4 (co-incidentally the last time that happened gravesen was there) but it will certainly do for now, especially 4 days from closing of the transfer window

If it just cover that is needed what about former Chelsea player Jiri Jarosik - Don't beleive he is having to good a time getting in the Celtic. Could either get him on loan or on the cheap.

 

Not a bad player to have on the bench, as he is not scared of a shot and can hit the back of the net. Decent enough player to bring on if you want an attacking midfeilder when you are chasing a game - a la Blackburn.

 

OK not going to turn us in to World beaters by any means, but is a little different to what we already have, is going to be realatively inexpensive, and has European experience.

 

Only a thought, to be thrown in to the mix.

Would SWP be obtainable for £10m or so?

^^ Quality player but he's a wide player even though Id love him here we need a proper center mid, not a Neville who can't play anywer or a pienaar who plays across the hole midfield and isnt getting played because of his size imo, which is unfair. we need to buy a player who's played center midfield all his life and can pass a ball, simple as, I can't think why its so hard to find a creative player theres loads of them.

If Yakubu comes,that in its self will help Arteta!

 

At the moment teams cope withour aimless long balls to AJ or to the(need more

experience)Anichebe.Enabling them to watch the Arteta route,as they did at

Reading.

 

IF Yakubu does what people expect of him....his power and strength coupled with

AJ's speed will cause much more of a problem,thus with a bit of luck Arteta may

get that bit more space he needs.

 

Cahill back in the team will also help Arteta......he was most teams enemy number

one a while back.

 

Artetas problem just lately is that he is our only major threat....although,Carsley

and Neville will battle,opponents don't mind giving them a couple of extra yards

whilst keeping tabs with the real creator Arteta.

A team with a second forward either Vaughan or Yakubu and Cahill,will see us

creating more chances.At the same time Baines and Jagielka settle in to the

team.......I think making us a very hard team to beat.

From what i've seen the most likely replacement appears to be Nolan, however as people have rightly asked, is this the right move?

 

Whether it be Yakubu, Vaughan, Anichebe or McFadden, Moyes seems to prefer a 4-4-2 system these days. Therefore we have 4 midfield positions to feel. In my opinion Arteta is put on the right with Cahill in the middle. This leaves us with a creative left winger position and also a holding midfielder.

 

I believe Pip should play at right back. Can Jags play the holding midfield role? Should the holding midfielder just be able to shackle the opposition and provide cover or do we need someone who can also provide good distribution to our 'wingers'?

 

If happy with Jags, we just need a left winger, in which case someone like Matty Taylor would be ideal.

 

Obviously the other side to it is if DM wants to switch to 4-5-1. Ignoring the fact thatone of AJ/whoever would get dropped, who fills the extra midefield spot - McFadden? Pip (and put TH at RB)? Carsley? I think this is where Nolan fits in. If we had Taylor & Arteta on the wings, Jags holding, Nolan & Cahill supporting AJ, this would be a pretty strong line up.

 

Effectively, what i'm saying is we need to sign Taylor (7m?) AND Nolan (5m?).

Forget about joe cole - that's ridiculous!!!

 

Diarra - good young player may be worth a go at £3m or season loan

Diop - definately available for around £3m - proven to be class at times in the prem but plagued with injuries and still ??? over his over-all fitness

Nolan - if we could get him for £5m then in my opinion this would be a great bit of business

Vogel - I didn't see what happened to him but maybe still a pos...

 

all would improve squad and dare i say are better than some of what we already have.

 

I feel a problem area still though is left mid - i'd love to see piennar have a game but i'm sure moyes will give him his chance. For me though we should strengthen this position:

 

Taylor - class shot and cross and can defend - should be our priority in my opinion

Downing/ Gamst Pederson - long shots but if we've got money then why shouldn't we bid for the likes of these

Thomas - would give us good back-up on both wings

Barnes - class young talent - could turn out like his RS name-sake - at £4-5m that would be another bargain!

 

I can see something happening before fri - feel it needs to after the disappointment of manny (glad he's not signed after seeing his true colours!)

Gamst Pederson would be ahead of Taylor for me but other clubs interested in him so would be a price battle plus Balckburn won't let him go.

 

Taylor is more realistic, seen as though Pompey need the money....

Joe Cole is not a very real possibility at all for us. The lad has proven himself at Chelsea and if he left he would be going to a CL team only.

 

Diarra I would agree, could be a possible. With 3 days to go, I think we need to have low expectations now. Unfortunately.

 

 

Forget about joe cole - that's ridiculous!!!

 

 

Still got no chance now? He's had a bust up with Mourinho.

If we sign him it must be the best signing we have made in a while. This lad is class. If he is being sold then we will have to fight of competition from West Ham - wich could be hard, dependng on if hes after money or football. Football he will pick us, money he will pick West Ham.

Matt Taylor at around 6m would be the best bet. Would fit well into the team and provide us with a true left sided player.

 

Would like Nolan as well as when Tim isn't around - we are lightweight in attacking central midfield.

 

6 for Taylor, 5 for Nolan both would be great additions.
