Title: The ITK Thread: January Edition (Back With a Vengeance!)
Post by: Verm on December 31, 2012, 07:16:33 PM
Back by popular demand, although this one won't be nearly as busy as the Summer one.

I'll update whenever I can.

I'll carry over the results from the Summer window to determine the winner for the season ;)

THE NSNO ITK PREMIER LEAGUE 2012/13

1st.   Fourth Official     (5pts)  (5 Correct - 0 Incorrect)
2nd.  Shorty                (3pts)  (3 Correct - 0 Incorrect)
3rd.    THT + LCAB     (2pts)  (2 Correct - 0 Incorrect)
4th.  John Merro         (2pts)  (4 Correct - 2 Incorrect)



Fourth Official (@FourthOfficial_)
- Says there's interest in Lescott (no more than that at the moment though)
- Advanced talks over a permanent deal for Vadis Odjidja Ofoe. Hitz may leave if it comes off.
- City will allow Lescott out on loan if they bring in another CB, player prefers Everton over Villa.


John Merro (@johnmerro1)



LCAB and THT (@lcabbabeh) (@theholytrinity8)
- Everton lost interest in Forren when they saw he couldn't run, price also too high.



Shorty

Ok fair enough.  Good that you are clamping down on idiotic comments like mine! :thumbsup:

May I suggest to the mods that anything regarding transfer rumours has to be in this thread.  Anyone who starts a new thread in January on an individual player we are linked with gets banned for life

I was referring to the twitter ITK stuff, not your good self posting it. I'm glad you had the patience and didn't start a thread I think this is the perfect solution to all this supposed ITK stuff. I my opinion no one should be allowed to start a new thread at any time of the season with "an ITK own twitter says...", unless they have a mobile gastro eatery in the southwest Lancashire area

Gamesmanship so he can have funds to spend, he wants to buy you can tell at every press conference he does, he's now complaining about his squad size (the biggest in the league), he just wants assurances if he lets anyone go he can buy a replacement.

Agree with this. Lescott deal will all come down to what city do. With toure off to AFCON's and mica Richards out for another month or so they will keep lescott right up until end of January. If they have signed a replacement then we may just have a chance.

I don't think Liverpool are now. Think it was him or sturidge. With that looking as good as complete don't think they will be after him now.

Funny how they keep complaining about spending no money ect ect...
And yet sturidge will be another 12M they have spent... On top of the 15M joe Allen, 10M borini.

Around 30M just there on players hardly noticeable. Give moyes 30M and we would of have been comftabaly in the top 3 now!!

He can't be on much more than 10 or 15k a week though. I would definitely keep him around, but maybe Moyes isn't convinced or he has suitors elsewhere that are willing to give him a longer contract or more playing time.

The PSG striker Guillaume Hoarau, left his team's training in Doha before the other day. The latter returned to Paris to finalize transfer. According to the team, despite a proposal for Everton, the former Le Havre could join the club of China and Dalian Aerbin which has made a very good offer to the player.

Tuesday the Molde defender decadent A-team gathering in South Africa. The reason must be that the previous is very close by signing for a new club. This also admits Ole Gunnar Solskjaer above Romsdals Budstikke.

- Yes, Vegard travel not in training sessions because we are in final talks with a club. The possibility exists that Vegard must travel for medical check and negotiation of contracts. Since team site on Thursday morning, this came hurry decay now. Drillo was very understanding, he says.

Not sure which club

A number of big clubs have smelled the talented defender. Both Everton and Manchester United have been mentioned in the past, but also clubs from Germany and several other major leagues should be interested. Neither Solskjaer, previous or Sverre Mauseth (previous advisor) will comment on what club it is.

- No, nothing is quite the box yet, so I will not comment on the club any closer now. But it is very close to a transition, said Solskjaer to Romsdals Budstikke yesterday

I always find it weird when some players would rather go to play somewhere like China instead of taking an opportunity to play in the biggest league in the world. I know they get a big pay day but he wouldn't exactly be starving if he came to the PL and would play a better standard of football in front of huge crowds. Maybe Chinese football has something going for it i don't know about...

I know they get a big pay day but he wouldn't exactly be starving if he came to the PL and would play a better standard of football in front of huge crowds. Maybe Chinese football has something going for it i don't know about...
It's an easier life. Standard of football is lower so you can be a star and not even try as hard as in PL.

be honest, a player is unlikely to win anything with us. He is never going to play for the clubs challenging in Europe so why not earn shit loads in china?

Doubt it. Too slow for the league but doesnt have the bottle in my opinion either. Decent technique, understands the game and can put in a great delivery. Will be someone who can get assists and the odd goal but in my opinion will never do enough in open play to make it. I'll always go back to the semi against Liverpool when it was 1-0 I think. There was a ball 70/30 in his favour on the half way line against spearing. If Gueye won it we were on the break with 3 men forward against 4. He completely wimped out when he saw Spearing coming, didnt even come close to winning the tackle, barely even went to the ball and they went on the attack. It was at a time when we were under pressure and every break was crucial. There is no way he should have been coming away without the ball but he didnt want it enough. It was the manner in which he didnt want to go for it in the biggest game he is ever likely to play in his career that for me is the sign of a player who isnt likely to make the grade at any kind of high level purely because he doesnt have enough bravery or doesnt have enough mentally.

And his lack of pace and fitness wont help either.

Fourth official is saying Sunderland will get £7m if Darren Bent plays another game for Villa.

http://www.nettavisen.no/sport/fotball/article3541221.ece (http://www.nettavisen.no/sport/fotball/article3541221.ece)

Wednesday night, it was clear that Vegard Forres not travel to South Africa with the national team because he is in talks with a new club.

Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could confirm to Romsdals Budstikke as true, but would not reveal which club it was all about.

- It is possible that Vegard must go for medical test and negotiate the contract, so he can not go to South Africa, said Solskjaer about his student rbnett.no.
- It's Fulham
Sky Sports Thursday announced that it will be the talk of Fulham, the club which already has the Norwegians Brede Hangeland and John Arne Riise in the squad.
The local newspaper Rbnett claim the English media channel are wrong. After that Romsdals Budstikke experience, it is not right that Vegard Forres is heading to Fulham, they wrote.
Thus it is still unclear which club Forres is in final negotiations with, but probably will be known shortly.

Sky Sports writes while several other clubs have shown interest in Norwegian, including Manchester United, Newcastle, Everton and Sunderland.

ITS ON!

Terrible shout IMO. The ONLY way I would let Distin go is if we replaced him with lescott. Forren is completely unproven and would struggle in PL initially even if he ended up a very good player. Not saying dont get forren but for me you'd have forren and Duffy as the young back ups, then 2 snr CB's jags and either Distin or lescott

Yeah I kinda ignored the 1.5M bit as its a unrealistic figure. If he was to be sold it would be akin to Saha where we'd receive next to nothing given his age and contract situation. In which case why would we in anyway want to get rid of Distin other than saving on wages if a better replacement was available (lescott).

Quote
Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert refuses to dismiss making an approach for Manchester City and England defender Joleon Lescott.

Lescott, a life-long Villa supporter, is out of favour at the Etihad Stadium and has been strongly linked with a move away in the current transfer window.

"He has been a top player and still is," Lambert says of Lescott. "As I've said before, I will sit with the rest of the staff and see what I can do. But I don't think you can ever dismiss it any level whenever you are talking about a top player."

(Dagbladet): Dagbladet wrote earlier today that Vegard previous is going to a big foreign club. Molde player has recently been linked to several clubs - including Manchester United, Everton and Fulham.

Thomas Myhre, former keeper at Everton and football expert in TV2, believe that it is these layers is at stake, you should choose Forrer Fulham.

- It is incredibly difficult to say anything about where he should go. He is a player who has taken big steps, and it is gratifying that he is heading to overseas.

- As a former Everton player, I should like to have seen the previous there. But for his own part, I think Fulham are an excellent alternative, he said.

Cramped for space
It justifies Myhre that Everton as of now has three good center backs who go on rollover - and there is little chance that the previous games into the A squad soon.

- The fact that Everton have such good center backs, making sure the cracks are narrower than in Fulham. It is best to get to play quite immediately, says Myhre.

ITS OFF and Myhre is a cunt

I'd like to see us genuinely flog Heitinga, We should be able to get around £5M or so for him.

Forren in on a permanent and Lescott on loan would be good business, Lescott should have no trouble slotting straight back in along side jags, allowing us to bring Forren in in bits and pieces to get him his experience.

Distin will probably retire at the end of the season, as will probably neville. We are gonna be really short at the back at the end of the season so 1 out and 2 in would be good business.

This is ofcourse what I would LIKE to see happen. It probably wont, but being realistic I'd like to see us get rid of Heitinga, dont think he is arsed anymore and we should try and get money for him while we still can.

Also if we could I'd like to see us invest in Jack Butland too.

Distin cannot be allowed to retire.
In my opinion he has been the star performer in the Everton defence and is unequalled in terms of pace and effort let alone his height and physique.
Even though I like Jagielka, Distin and Baines are our best defenders by far !

Wouldn't be a terrible signing at all. He's certainly been in form with Toulouse so far this season. Not a senior international, but he's only 22. My only concern would be maturity, as he was one of the France U21s fined for (I think) breaking curfew recently. He does seem to have a goal in him, though, and would offer a more pacey option than our other current strikers.

Mëissa N'Diaye is his agent, so if that is truly the source of the information, there is likely something to this one.

Well in form, with 13 in 15 this season for Velez Sarsfeld, including 11 in his last 7 (scored in 6 of the 7). Would probably cost a few million pounds, though.

Don't think that would make a difference either way. City at this point are looking out for themselves. They don't care if lescott is cup tied as they would happily keep him as back up.

The only way to get excited about a lescott deal is if city sign another CB.

Yes if funds weren't so limited. Bit we don't really need another slow midfielder at the moment.

I'd think he'd be a Gibson type signing, one that doesn't get people excited but he'd do a very good job. Needs to sort his hair though if he was in midfield with Fellaini.

When Lyonsy told us about him, he was 15, was that in May Bally?  Or was it in November 2011?  I have a feeling it was.

Mick Lyons had been coaching him and filling his head with Everton, and the lad was basically better than Cahill was at that age and only had eyes for us thanks to Mick's brainwashing!
Yeah it was a over a year ago like it was in the county

Hides from the ball? He's recognised as an excellent passer of the ball yet you label him as being one who hides from the ball.

If he could actually get about the pitch with more mobility than a battleship he'd be an incredible player.

Just saying when I've seen him he doesn't offer himself  for the ball, just walks into a position where he can't receive the ball. And we all know he is comically slow. Actually embarrassing for someone of his age and being a professional sportsman that he is that slow.  Either way he's not the way forward.

Could be, I suppose, with all the chatterings over the years about him. He was due to be or of contract this summer, but just signed a2 year extension before Christmas.  Only 18, and apparently is of Greek descent so a work permit might not be necessary. Hasn't really featured much at all this season, though.

The one player from the A-League right now that stands out to me is New Zealand winger Marco Rojas. 10 goals and 5 assists in 14 games for Melbourne Victory. Plays primarily on the left, though, so not a "need" position at this point. He's got 13 full caps.

Hiding from the ball is the last thing he does. Maybe his pace hinders him in keeping up with any swift counter attacks but when you need a player to help you close a game out through possession football he's an excellent choice.

We could have done with a player like that on a number of occassions this year, none moreso than against Newcastle other night when our inability to keep the ball for the last 5 minutes was embarassing.

When Felli goes, for a replacement for him for next to nothing Huddlestone would not be the worst choice Moyes could make if he then wanted to spunk the rest of it on a proper top class striker.

I'd like to see some stats on him. tackles etc.

I know he can pass a ball, but I also get a but of a Jack Roswell vibe from him. I think with a bit of fire up his arse he could be a top, top player. but whenever I' 've seen him he's looked talented, but lacking a bit of stomach.

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has insisted he has no intention of leaving the Premier League champions during the January transfer window.

Lescott has fallen out of favour at City this season, although he did play the full 90 minutes of the 3-0 FA Cup third round victory over Watford at the Etihad Stadium.

QPR, Aston Villa and Lescott's former club Everton have all been linked with a move for the 30-year-old England international.

However, the player's spokesman has released a statement making it clear his client wants to remain with City.

"Joleon Lescott has ruled out the possibility of any loan move during the January transfer window," said the statement.

"Despite speculation linking him with several Premier League clubs, Joleon has no desire to leave Manchester City."

Honestly, no, l wouldnt beg to leave.

But all the money in the world cant satisfy you if your not doing what it is that every footballer is supposed to want and that's play 90 minutes of football once a week.

A lot of players actively seek a move away somewhere when they're no longer in the managers plans. One's with ambitions other than to get stinking rich do anyway.

Joleon it seems is happy just to take the poke regardless.

After that arsenal performance he gave it shown that he doesnt give a fuck about us and would probably leave once QPR came and offered him 120k a week. Would rather take a gamble on a younger foreign defender than butternut squash headed 30 year old alien

I knew it wouldn't take long for Evertonians to turn their back on him and for him to be a prick again. Let's be honest, this debate does come up quite a lot these days; the whole "What's the difference between 50k and 90k a week in terms of quality of life?" vs. "Footballers don't have a long career to earn as much as possible" argument.

I hated Joleon when he left and he set us back a few years. There are Evertonians today who still believe that his move ripped the fabric out of our team, highlighted us as a selling club and that we've never recovered from his departure. Our defensive record would speak for itself in that regard. Consecutive clean sheets were seen as standard for an 18-month period with the partnership of himself and Jagielka, now we'd be lucky to keep one never mind string multiple together! I will always begrudge him for his decision 3 years ago but would welcome him back given the current climate.

However, can you really argue with his move? You could argue Kolo Toure's drug ban resurrected his fledgling City career but he's still in contention for an England call-up whenever the squad's picked, he's earning much more at City and he has Premier League title and FA Cup medal to his name. He's playing less at the moment with the arrival of Nastasic but is still needed as cover. If City get cover in, I still think he could be moved on.

John Merro and Fourth Official, both of whom Verms featured as ITKs last time around, still believe the deal to be on the table and not dead in the water.

Do l blame him for wanting to move when City came calling? No far from it. As far as he's concerned it's mission accomplished and he can feel vindicated for making the move if not how he went about to engineer it.

Do l think he's a money grabbing shithouse who will dig his heels in NOT to move if it means him taking a pay cut of around 40k a week, yes!

Everton are believed to have had a £4million bid for Norway defender Vegard Forren accepted by his club Molde.
Fulham reportedly made an offer for the 24-year-old on Thursday and Molde boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Forren was set to leave the club.

But, according to The Sun, Everton have now rivalled Fulham’s bid and are in pole position to wrap up Forren’s signature this week.

Everton must persuade Pedro Leon to accept a move to the Premier League if they are to complete the transfer of the former Spain under-21 international. Though Real Madrid are understood to have agreed a fee of around £6million for the right winger, Leon is reluctant to end a loan spell at the Spanish capital's third club, Getafe.

The only thing we do know for sure is that we know nothing about what's happening behind the scenes.

Let's clarify this "advance".

It's not really needed, because the players' fees are not paid right away either. What the club might be doing is projecting their income for the, say, next four years that it takes to pay the fees.

I think someone can claim to be ITK if they have a source of information, usually from the club or a players agent that they get transfer information from.

Peddling someone elses rumours or ITK information does not make you ITK.

That's the beauty of pretending to be an ITK.

By their very nature, an ITK can't name their sources, so anyone can pretend to be one and get away with it til that window closes.

Take that Liverpool fan who guessed a transfer right, and was lauded as an ITK. The down-side(for him! :P ) was that even the clubs were fooled, as the player in question's transfer fee got jacked up cause of the "leak"!

Yep. Basically seeing Heitinga and Forren as a wash fee-wise, with a bit of savings on wages. Gueye may be heading back to France as well, which would free up a bit more cash for another attacker (Ben Yedder or the like).

Not happy with this unless Lescott also joins us. Then this is a good deal.

Lescott won't go out on loan, his agent has said he's happy to fight for his place at Man City.
Anyway if we do get Forren what's the point in getting another CB, Lescott's wages would be an issue as well.

Lescott won't agree to come unless he's guaranteed first-choice. That won't happen unless Distin moves on--Harry's been sniffing, apparently. I don't think replacing 2/3 of your CBs in one January window is a great idea. Keep the Jagielka/Distin partnership, and Forren is supposedly good enough to fill in if needed. Would much rather spend the money on another new player, rather than contributing to the wages of one we likely can't sign long term anyway.

Yeah there's always a risk when you're selling someone with Heitinga's experience and quality (when he's playing well!) but as you say Moyes is good at this.

Also if we're not offering Heitinga a new deal (or he wouldn't sign one) he'd have to be moved on in the summer anyway.

When you've not got any money sometimes you have to move things as they come up.

I don't think we'd make any effort to get Lescott unless we intend on making him first choice, even if Man City covered a percentage of his wage that would be an expensive loan deal for us

Lescotts agent is playing the game to make sure his player gets exactly what he wants, Lescott would jump at a loan to a good club in the top 6 for reasons such as wanting to play, in the shop window for a permanent transfer and England caps

If Heitinga goes he will be our 3rd choice CB and might end up playing a lot of games in case of a single injury. Are we sure that he will be as good as or better than Heitinga and will make immediate impact. I am not sure we can afford the risk of him not being up to the pace and that is why I would like someone like Lescott to be there in also bearing in mind that Distin is getting older and we might be needing one more CB in the near future.

If you speak to the fans of the teams Parker has played for, they will tell you how good he is. In a similar way to how not many neutrals will appreciate what Gibson does for us.

For me, I'd certainly take him over Hitz and I think he would offer us a lot more stability in the middle. But with his wages, I would expect someone else to show more interest and money than we would anyway.

Have to imagine Udoh was told something about Reading buying a Nigerian associated with Everton and got the wrong end of the stick. Very amusing.

but with the attacking talent in front of him, the job for him and Gibson would be to stop other teams playing and to allow Pienaar, Mirallas, Fellaini Baines, Coleman etc to attack, which doesn't need the most talented of player to do, more of a well disciplined workhorse job which I think Parker could do

Completely off topic, but had a conversation with a mate about the time he went to Spurs saying, if Arsenal had bought Parker, Jags and Freidal, they would be challenging for the league.

I think the reason they recalled him was he wasn't getting games, so they'll send him back out on loan somewhere else instead, rather than keeping him as cover.

Agree with ILB here, Scott Parker is fucking pony.

All the media wank off him cause he's throwing his head in to a tackle by the corner flag.

His positional awareness and passing range is sub standard.

Anyone who thinks phil nev is better than parker is A) an older gentleman in a mid life crisis and likes his highlights b) knows nothing about football c) a div d) a wind up merchant

Neville isnt better than him. However he has always been an average player with a great work rate, commitment and made the best out of what he was given. Never overly rated him however fair play to him to have as good a career as he has. Plenty of more talented players could look at his attitude.

I've only ever seen Parker have one good game and that came against Spain which was watched all over the UK, so it's understandable to think why some people consider him amazing.

He is just an average player though with a very good work rate.

In the last decade he is the only player to win the FWA footballer of the year, while playing for a club that didn't finish in the top 4, let alone getting it while playing for a club that got relegated. He was also selected by fellow professionals in the PFA team of the year last season.

I think in some ways the accolades have probably made some think he's an over rated donkey, as he rarely tries too much flash stuff. Football is more than being able to spray 60 yard balls or skin 3 people and he works smart, as well as hard. It's one thing to say to someone to do the simple things well, but very few players manage to do anywhere near the level he does consistently.

No one has said he is world class, but in terms of English defensive midfielders, it's hard to name many better. Having said all that, I wouldn't be that excited about getting him as he is on a decreasing curve with age, plus his wages. But the idea that is 'limited' or just average with a good work ethic are not accurate.

Are you still talking about Scott Parker?? I think he is a totally different player to Steven, nowhere near the skill and flair, it's a bit like comparing Messi to Lee Carsley, and I loved Carsley by the way. If anything I would liken Parker to a poor mans Peter Reid without the aggression. Or a not very rich man's Lee Carsley.

possibly the most over rated player in the league. The suggestion in the summer (not from yourself) that England would have won the Euros with him in the squad is laughable

Pirlo is 100 times the player Carrick is, which would make your opinion on Parker very low indeed if you agree!

i asked some spurs fan what they thought about buying baines and fellini, and the parker debate. i actually got no abuse and they had some good answers.


"Interesting thought of a Baines/Bale wing. I don't know if it would be as good as it seems prima facie. Baines excels becausee 1. He is great technically and good athletically and 2. Pienaar meshes very well with his play. Baines is the more direct player who bursts past Pienaar while Pienaar is more indirect. He cuts inside or holds the ball up for Baines to rub past. Bale and Baines may actually get in eachothers way as they both are direct players. I think Baines would have to change his game if he comes here to BAE's style which is to receive and then either find Bale quickly on the ground or wait and loop a ball into him. You do not see much of BAE running past Bales until we have held it around the box for awhile and require BAE's overlap to get to the byline. I don't think Bale should change his game nor should he as he is one of the only players in the world with the talent to pull it off.

Parker is good, would be an upgrade on Gibson but not on Fellaini or Osman although he doesn't fall in their player types either. I think with Parker you get a good D-mid who will work extremely hard, stay positionally disciplined, and be a leader of men. He offers a little more than the typical DM though as he is decent with the ball at his feet. He is capable of a decisive pass on occasion and will keep it simple in midfield, not losing the ball. He can be the metronome in midfield if you need him to direct the attack but he is rather less effective at this role and should try and find someone who is better suited to that responsibility. Has an alright long shot even if we haven't seen it at Spurs yet. Hope he stays and pretty confident he will. None of these rumors seem serious."



"Parker stay! Baines yes! Fellaini no! Dembele and Sandro!"

"Id hate to see Scotty go but hes not going to get back into the first team any time soon so I wouldnt begrudge him a swangsong - im sure youd love the cover he gives your back 4 - you may even keep a clean sheet.

Would love Baines - BAE is a good player, Baines wouldnt be a massive improvement at left back but our set peice play is still pretty week so hed bring that extra dimension that I think would make him worth the £15m we'd have to stump up.

Fellanis a cracking player - would be great cover for Dembele/ Sandro and would get into the first team in his own right at the moment just behind Defoe - his bossing of the spot just behind the striker has been amazing to watch this season. The one problem is that we had our fingers burnt with Pienaar a little - great for you under Moyes and in your system but average for us - so I doubt Levy would stump up the cash"

thats a few of the replys.

lot of the lads seemed to really rate baines however thought fellini wouldn't get into there team.

Steven was a class above the one that Parker is in as well.

Parker is a good to very good PL player.

As Rhys said, he really has made the most out of his talents though.

He's better than Neville is so he'd clearly improve us in that respect but then I'd rather have Gibson in that deeper role and Ossie is a better link midfielder.

Not that we'd be in for him in any case!

Pirlo would sit and control the game while Gattuso would get all round the pitch disrupting the opposition.

Not really. Twice the player Parker is? When did Carrick win his FWA award? Or any personal accolades for that matter? Carrick is vastly overrated by people who marvel at the fact he can pass the ball sideways and backwards regularly for a team that dominates possesion every week.

Only in Englan could a player like Scott Parker win the FWA award. Yet Carrick is the over-rated one  lolol

Invalid because you say so? Yawn - isn't that the standard response?

Yeah I think that's a classic opinion of someone who doesn't see the player in question that often; if only from not understanding what type of player Gibson actually is.

Which was actually one of the first things I said about Parker.  :snigger:

I think discipline is often mistaken for limitations, especially in England. I think it's somewhat in our nature that we are gung ho and the holding defensive midfielder role is a simple job and not that helpful, unless it is combined with long passes or a decent long shot. It took Makelele a long time before he was appreciated, more recently Leiva was long considered shit by all and sundry.

But someone like Parker would be far more highly regarded and thought of, in La Liga or Serie A.

I've seen a fair bit of Bridcutt, he was superb when I watched him against Newcastle recently. He would certainly be worth consideration, I'd guess Brighton would want upwards of £5m.

A couple new names:

Virgil Van Dijk, Dutch U-21 centre-half playing for Groningen.. Tall lad at 6'4", Youtube suggests he's got a decent right foot from distance/set pieces. 5 goals and 4 assists in 43 league appearances is a pretty decent return for his position. Other than that, I know nothing about him other than Sky suggests we're interested as a potential Heitinga replacement. Maybe if the Forren deal falls through?

And from Twitter, Dortmund winger Kevin Großkreutz. Can't imagine that there's anything to this, although he's out of contract in 18 months' time and a bit out of form, with only 1 goal so far this season after 8 in each of the past two. Add that to the fact that he plays mostly on the left where we have Pienaar (and Oviedo), and I can't see this being anything significant.

I was trying to guess how much he was on earlier, to try and work out how much we could save from the wage bill and I came to the conclusion it was probably less than I had originally thought.

Think he may be on something around £20k-£30k p/w, if it's true we've decided to keep him to the end of the year. You'd be hard pressed to get a better option for around that value, without a decent outlay for a fee in the first place.

Hasn't set the place on fire, but hasn't done a lot wrong either.

It's nice for someone else to agree. I'm just hoping he gets it together. He really is trying hard. And major injuries can finish players He's just a bit short of pace at the mo. I think he's a smarter footballer than he's being given credit for. But he still needs to prove he can hack it.

He's a trier, everybody loves a trier (well they used to at this club anyway!). I agree though, give him this season as a right off and if he's still underperforming next season then feel free to criticise him. Hes just come back from a major injury and I doubt he expected to play 22 games by now.

Think they still want that polish fella, that I'm not even gonna try spelling. Lew..... Somet or other. He's into his last 6 months so I'd imagine that may spell the end for welbeck if that was to happen.

Welbeck would certainly help a push for 4th for us. Even if signing him after the loan was not possible I'd still take him for the second half of this season if available. We need more good players.

The shite have just spunked £12m on a English forward of similar age but with less experience and productivity. It would be closer to £15m, but it's never going to happen, Fergie has said he will not lose another title on goal difference again so he won't be loaning out one.

Sound theory, as long as the 3 or 4 players wages don't massively exceed what we pay fellaini.

We'd be looking at bargain basement rather than brilliant.

He asks for it though MGP. So what if he is you 10 years ago. he acts like an idiot alot of the time. In between that he is a good poster and good to have around. If the mods and majority of people are calling him on it, it is because he is at fault. Not everyone else.

Agree completely.

He certainly doesn't deserve to get banned as I've seen worse from posters before (yourself included) go unpunished. Besides I like Ram, disagree with him a fair bit but he's a good poster.

Aaaaanyway... Fellaini may have been a panic buy but only because our delegation couldn't find a deal for Moutinho IIRC. I never saw that much much of Moutinho so don't know. Just remember pundits creaming themselves about him in the euros. In hindsight we could have made the same money from selling him a few years later too. That's the way to see it now.

I never saw him week-in week-out (does anyone watch the Portuguese League?!) but from what I have he seems to be a classic Number 10, don't think he's the total worldy he's made out to be. But I could be wrong, I still haven't seen him that much.

Never agreed with this Fellaini panic buy theroy... Don't get me wrong we did get him earlier than we had have liked but wed been watching him a long while and had we not moved when we did he would of gone somewhere else.

So maybe we panicked a little and ended up doing the deal 6 months early or so but he certainly wasn't a blind purchase/gamble based on not being able to get mountiniho.

The only panic was being desperate to get someone new in which caused us to pay quite a bit more than we probably thought be was worth at the time.

I think you're right in terms of his ability although i think he plays.much deeper than a 10. He never was touted as "the next big thing" or anything like that.

He happened to be a classy hard  working young midfielder that we went after one summer. His stock was quite high off course and he's impressed whenever I've seen him, but i don't think the fact he's still in Portugal is all that bizarre especially considering that he has moved on to porto after we bid for him.

To the bloke a few pages back talking about Rojas from the A-League his contract finishes next January (thats from an ITK source) he could make EPL standard but i doubt it, imo the better prospect in the A-league and who has been attracting attention from Reading and Celtic is Rogic, who is a playmaker who plays behind the striker (im pretty sure) and is 6 foot 2 as well,

According to this he doesn't like the look of the offers he's had so is staying at Molde. Its a shame as he seems half decent.

Good to see us being called English Premier League giants though.

To the bloke a few pages back talking about Rojas from the A-League his contract finishes next saturday (thats from an ITK source) he could make EPL standard but i doubt it, imo the better prospect in the A-league and who has been attracting attention from Reading and Celtic is Rogic, who is a playmaker who plays behind the striker (im pretty sure) and is 6 foot 2 as well,

Knew Rojas was out of contract at the end of the season (which is March 31), but didn't think it was that soon. Rogic looks like a pretty good player as well, and would serve a more immediate need here--an attacking midfield playmaker, whereas Rojas is a winger. Rogic's size better suits him to our style, as well. Apparently Fulham have jumped in the hunt, and for only £400k he may be worth going for.

sorry mate, i meant next january, i must have got distracted and wrote saturday for some reason... he reminds me as a better (but older) version of Tommy Oar who was ripping it up and whose career has stalled at some average dutch club

yeah Rogic is quite tall and was suppose to have a trial at celtic but not sure if that is happening, i dont think Rogic would fit there style though, i think he should go to spain or italy, not england

They are both very good, I was at Suncorp when Brisbane Roar ripped Melbourne Vicory apart 5-0 but since then Rojas has been very good. Pity he's a Kiwi. Rogic I think will be very good one day. Technically very good.

There's no way that we're spending that on an unproven 29 year old.

The story will have come about through them saying the other day that they were worried about potential bids and (as per Ridge's association) us having just loaned them Barkley.

If we've got £4m to spend now it'll be on someone who will appreciate in value.

if Shalke want to accept a money bid they are free to do so

Didn't we have the same thing with beckford, the whole "pre contracts arnt legally binding" I'm not sure how true that is, but seen as the agreement is with the player schalke are free to accept a bid, but he is also at  liberty to turn them down, if he does sign for someone else it would be interesting to see if ir got messy. Also for him to accept would have to be more money than spurs which we havnt got. I think the only hope of seeing him in an everton shirt would be a loan  deal till the end of the season to save schalke some of his wages.

" Everton could snatch German international from under Tottenham’s noses according to the Sunday Express.
Tottenham have agreed a pre-contract deal to sign the talented young Schalke midfielder but the Bundesliga side are free to try and sell the player this month so as to avoid losing the 22 year old on a free transfer when his contract comes to an end this summer.
That leaves David Moyes still able to lure the utility man if he can tempt Schalke with a decent offer. Lewis Holtby has fueled speculation of a possible Toffees switch by admitting he is an avid Everton fan whose family’s loyalties are with the Toffees.
Holtby has impressed this term, helping Schalke into the last 16 of the Champions League but is keen to leave his Gelsenkirchen side, hence his agreeing a deal with Tottenham. However perhaps a move to Goodison Park could tempt the midfielder into leaving Germany in January."

Need an American poster to enlighten us.

Short answer: No, I don't think he could contribute anything meaningful to the team right now.

Long answer: The USMNT, and more specifically the press who reports on them, is dreadfully guilty of overhyping our youngsters. We did it with Freddy Adu and we did it with Jozy Altidore, and we're trying to do it again with Juan Agudelo. They show some promise before they turn 18, get a call-up to the senior side because we have no options in attack outside of Donovan and Dempsey, and do well in a cameo. They move from the US, experience what is likely a sort of culture shock, and are dreadful for several years. Adu may finally be finding his feet again back in the US (now that he's likely more mature at 23), while Altidore's settled and found a good bit of form at Alkmaar (and is also now 23). Even though Agudelo's got 16 caps, he isn't ready for the Premier League. He's got the size (6'1"), though he hasn't struck me as the paciest of players--though he isn't slow, either. He's got a better work rate on the occasions I've seen him than Altidore did at the same age, but he has much less in terms of finished product. Agudelo struggled this season following his trade from New York to Chivas, suggesting perhaps he may have issues settling in a new environment, or he's going through a lull after so much senior football (and the accompanying hype) at such a young age.

Celtic may be his level, or it may not. If he were to come to Everton, I'd support him like I do any of our players, but I don't think he'd do much for at least a couple of years. I'd put him behind Vellios in terms of current ability at the Premier League level. In my opinion, he'd be another Anichebe--frustrating for several years before finally starting to unlock his potential (or so we hope with Victor). He could probably do decently well at Celtic, as they're quite obviously the best team in their league and could bring him along with very little pressure to perform; particularly if they lose Hooper in this window, they'd have a striker gap to plug.

We're challenging for a European spot. While another striker would be nice, I don't think Agudelo is that striker. Altidore could very well be, but he's well out of our price range.

A couple more things:
He's got bags of potential, and at 20 has plenty of time to get there. If by some chance we were to sign him, I'd expect him to stay the rest of the season, get a couple of 5-10 minutes cameos after our European fate (either in or out) has been decided, and spend next season on loan in the Championship. I don't think he's ready to contribute meaningfully to any Premier League side yet.

Style-wise, I'd probably compare him to Danny Welbeck, though Welbeck is a couple of years older and has the advantage of being raised in English football.

A transfer fee of $2M USD has been bandied about, with his previous club (NY Red Bulls) due a portion of it. Somewhere in the region of £1.25M, though somewhere near half of that could be put into performance clauses.

Wages aren't an issue at all. MLS players are paid absolute garbage in comparison to both their European counterparts and U.S. athletes in other spectator sports. The average MLS salary would be equivalent to about £75k per year, and that's with the likes of Beckham's $6.5+M/year factored in. Agudelo's earning roughly £900-1000/week, based on what information I can find.

Spot on Les. I was watching Sky yesterday and they even had an advert where they refered to Jim White as our own Mr Transfer Window.

Coppell said that the transfer window breeds panic and encourages "scurrilous" transfer activity.

Have to disagree to a certain extent im afraid.

Saturday was the first time in 16 matches we'd kept a clean sheet. We'd also scored in 18 of our league games till then.

If we can keep more clean sheets we would improve our chances of CL footy by a huge amount imo.

It's hard to say though whether clean sheets are due to defenders or the system in front of them. If we played two holding players we'd keep more clean sheets but score less.

Although, yes there have been individual errors/poor performances.

Equally in terms of goals scored, we've missed loads of chances. Another forward type player might convert a few more meaning that if we do concede it's less relevant as we're already 2,3 nil up.

Basically we could do with reinforcements in any area of the pitch!

Liverpool look to have jumped ahead of Merseyside rivals Everton in the pursuit of Norway international Vegard Forren after the defender was invited for a trial.

It is understood the 24-year-old will be at the club's Melwood training ground on Tuesday for manager Brendan Rodgers to begin his assessment of the Molde centre-back.

Reports in Norway had claimed the Reds had a £4million bid accepted and Forren was scheduled to have a medical on Tuesday, but that is not the case.

Forren, who made his competitive international debut in October, was scouted in person at least twice by Everton manager David Moyes recently.

Fulham, Manchester United and Belgian side Club Brugge were also linked with a move for the defender.

Current club Molde FK had agreed terms with Bruges earlier this month, but the stopper was not interested to move to Belgium.

Forren recently revealed that he wants to join a club in the Premier League, otherwise he would "most probably stay in Molde."

Could easily be true we are interested. Moyes will have players lined up if we A) ever get investment or B) sell one of the big players.

So could just be if someone does buy Fellaini then we have sounded them out for a move.

This story about selling Heitinga. If there are no decent bids for him (5mil or more), then there is no point. We still need backup at the back and he could even fill in the midfield. We know he's not played well lately, but we also know how well he can play.  No other center back that we buy could be better than him. This Forren guy, is he really ready?? I'd say no.
If we're going to push for 4th, and cannot get good money for Johnny, keep him until the summer.

Yeah I was thinking about whether the extra pace of the game might help him.

His quick feet can leave lumbering opponents unable to change direction until he's moved away with the ball. Maybe more tactically aware leagues wouldn't be so susceptible to this.

Title: Etienne Capoue
Post by: Waltzer on January 16, 2013, 12:05:53 AM
Seems a bit steep for us, anyone heard anything?

Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue is closing in on a move to Everton during the January transfer window.

According to reports from French newspaper Sud Ouest, the 24-year-old Capoue will undertake a medical at Goodison Park in the next couple of days.

It is understood that the Toffees have agreed a transfer fee of between 10 and 12 million euros with Toulouse for the French international.

News of Capoue’s expected arrival will cast yet more doubt over star midfielder Marouane Fellaini’s future on Merseyside.

The Belgian international has been heavily linked with a move away from Goodison this January, with Chelsea reportedly his biggest suitors.

Capoue is rated in France as one of Toulouse’s most talented players in recent history and his physical attributes will have made him an attractive transfer target for David Moyes, especially in the event of Fellaini’s departure.

It is believed that Everton will face stiff competition for Capoue’s signature, as Arsenal look to reignite their interest in the player.

The Gunners were connected with a swoop for his services last summer, but a move to the Emirates may finally materialise this month.

Capoue has played 18 times for Toulouse this season, scoring three goals.

Having joined the French club’s youth team in 2005, and graduated to the senior setup two years later, he has gone from strength to strength.

A versatile player, who can also be deployed in defence, he finally earned international recognition in August last year, when he made the first of four appearances to-date for Les Bleus.

If we buy this guy it means one of 3 things.

Fellaini is being sold this January and Capoue is one if a few players bought with the proceeds

Or

BK has sourced some cash from somewhere that is secured against either us getting in the champions league or us selling fellaini to Chelsea if we don't qualify.

I think moyes may have read the riot act and it now shit or get off the potty.

I suspect that if we don't make the chumps league and fellaini is sold, moyes will bugger of to Germany.

To be honest if we can get them loans with an option to buy are the best idea for us. We just don't have the money to waste on transfers that don't work out. Also it means you aren't technically buying in Jan which could lead a more reasonable price if they were to stay on perhaps.

I dont think Hernandez is what we need personally.

He never scores from outside the box and the reason for this is that he's a striker who thrives on poaching goals from rickochets and flick ons. These type of goals tend to happen in the last 15 or 20 minutes OR when the attacking team are loading the box with players and pinning the other team back through controlling possession.

Not something that you really associate with us even against the weakest teams in the league. l think Hernandez would find himself isolated an awful lot and he's never going to thrive in those kind of situations.

Don't talk shit. He is twice the finisher Defoe is. We need a poacher in the box. Someone to get to the ricochets and deflections.

If he was twice the finisher Defoe is he'd have twice the goals surely?

He is a good finisher i'll grant you that, but Jelavic does not win everything in the air, far from it, and we NEVER play with 2 or more strikers the way Utd do at times with Rooney, RvP and Hernandez all on the pitch in the last 15/20 mins of games.

Hernandez also had an appauling start to the season iirc and has only just found his scoring boots again.

He suits Utd perfectly as they can always bring him on for the last half hour when they're pummeling teams and need a poacher just to stab one over the line from a yard out.

I can only think of Newcastle at home this season where we've truly battered a team and could have done with someone like Hernandez to come on and try and help put the game to bed or nick us a result.

He isn't what we need.

I can only think of Newcastle at home this season where we've truly battered a team and could have done with someone like Hernandez to come on and try and help put the game to bed or nick us a result.

He isn't what we need.

He would play instead of Jelavic at times. Felli will provide him all sorts of ammunition, he ghosts into space much like Cahill did and Baines and Pienaar would find him regularly too. he has bags of pace.
He doesnt have twice the goals because he plays a quarter of the games.

Newcastle, Swansea, Norwich and a few others at the start of th season where we needed someone to bury a sharp half chance. Hernandez does that

If he was twice the finisher Defoe is he'd have twice the goals surely?

He is a good finisher i'll grant you that, but Jelavic does not win everything in the air, far from it, and we NEVER play with 2 or more strikers the way Utd do at times with Rooney, RvP and Hernandez all on the pitch in the last 15/20 mins of games.

Hernandez also had an appauling start to the season iirc and has only just found his scoring boots again.

This

What I have heard from few Utd fans is that he's a very bad passer of ball and also doesn't hold the ball well. He's a good finisher but that's about it. I am not very sure if I would start him every match cuz he'll get isolated but he could come in the last few mins as sub and help us convert few draws into wins.

And as TheRam said it's never going to happen so no point discussing him.

Baines and Pienaar find him regularly? With crosses l presume you mean? Not much good for a striker nicknamed the little pea up againt 6ft goliaths of centre backs.

Newcastle, yes he would have come in useful, Swansea we'd put the game to bed by the 20th minute but Norwich we were fuckin awful against and barely created a solitary chance. Hernandez would have been as much use as a chocolate fireguard that day.

We play with one man up top with either a 5 man midfield looking to get forward in support or with Felli in behind Jelavic when we try and go more direct.

Neither system would suit Hernandez imo.

Felli just behind him would suit him perfectly. Baines and Pienaar have amazing ability to find each other on the ground. Both get behind the defender and with his move,ent they could find him with ball along the ground. he scores plenty of headers too for a small guy. iIt;s all about the space he finds. Makes amazing runs and is instinctive. Would pick up many a flick on.

We usually do business at the end of the window. Maybe it is to save money, maybe it's because there is an actual deadline for players/agents/clubs which forces them to act and by that point all their options are on the table.

QPR have made a £6.2m bid to sign Yann M'Vila from Rennes, but the deal hinges on whether they can convince him to join the Premier League's bottom team.

That fee would rise by around £400,000 if QPR stay up and although the clubs have a verbal agreement, the midfielder is reluctant to move to Loftus Road.

Fulham are also keen on the 22-year-old and would be willing to pay £5.8m, but no formal offer has been submitted.

M'Vila's current deal expires in 2015 but Rennes want to sell him this month.

There is interest from one other unnamed Premier League side over a loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the season - but it is not Arsenal or Tottenham, both of whom have previously enquired.

But if he's doing the shop window thing by going to QPR (and assuming he thinks they'd be going down) I suppose he might fancy taking the option of a loan and being in the shop window with a better team.

Its horrible to see everton fans accepting this is as fact. Losing Felli would require more than these two to nullify the loss we would feel not having him here. Its not just his play its the confidence he breathes throughout the team when he dominates a game. He is a different breed.

Very true.

IMO we would only want 1 of them anyway. Iv accepted Fellaini will be gone so there's no point being down about when he's gone. I think we'd see 3/4 players come in with that money anyway. You won't get anyone the same as Fellaini who dominates games like he does but there are other players that in there way can dominate games and be as affective in winning games for you.

Remember there's currently 5 teams above us without Fellaini.

And that is why we shouldn't sell him - as long as he wants to stay here. As soon as he declares his full interest in chelsea, or any other team for that matter (if we don't finish 4th) then that is when we start playing hardball with his suitors and think about replacements.

And that is why we shouldn't sell him - as long as he wants to stay here. As soon as he declares his full interest in chelsea, or any other team for that matter (if we don't finish 4th) then that is when we start playing hardball with his suitors and think about replacements.

Fuck that.

Sell him now whilst he still has a good few years left on his contract. The price will only decrease from here if we don't make the CL this season when he demands a move in the summer.

He still has an awful lot to prove in terms of dominating games consistently.

People expect us to strengthen, either by selling someone, or and a novel idea one or all of the board to stump up a transfer kitty, a risk that would be balanced against getting into champs league.  For us not to strengthen somehow in this position would show how utterly inept and blinkered this board is.

I still expect us to strengthen, i fear it will be sell to buy and a couple of loans, but who knows, we have wealthy board members who would like a return on investmenr, and knowing that champs league qualification is going to rocket the value of the shares they might like to invest maybe 20/30 mill between them, knowing that if ir doesnt come off they will get most, if not all of the money back thru player sales and if it does come off kerching. So i don't think its unreasonable to expect reasonable businessmen to see the need to strengthen and that the risk is pretty much covered one way or the other.

The original report suggests "prepared" instead of "made" a bid. In other words, he's a player we'll look at should we need to replace someone (Fellaini), but we won't actually do so until we need to. It could even be as far along as "Toulouse, if we offered you £X for Capoue, would you accept it?" "Yes." "Mr. Capoue, would you be open to a move?" "Yes, and I would like wages of £N per week."

They are reasonable (by reasonable I mean ability wise not personality) buisiness men though, certainly kenwright has his theatrical business, and i believe does have a ersonal fortune of some kind, earl is minted, between them they have the ability to loan the club a decent chunk, or securitse a loan personally. To me its kind of like if i went into a bookies and they said I can put abet.on at 100/1 and if i win I keep all the winnings, but if i loose I can have my money back if i sell them the remote for my dvd player, which i know I can replace. As I said the way I expect us to strengthen is wheeling and dealing, but it isnt entiry out of the realms of.posdibility that the business minds on the board (and the secret one we dont know about) see the potential of the situation and the minimal risk associated.

The original business model for kirkby was good for the board members,(short term benefits to.club,not neccesarily fans) and kings dock was the same, both failed for diferent reasons but neither was lack of will from either party.  If they  see an opportunity to make money/increase the value of shares through the champs league they may (although as pointed out may not) feel the time is right to adapt their approach, like what business men do. But as mentioned i think any strengthening will come from player sales.

they are totally different business models, Kings dock was a winner for the club and fans, notsomuch for good ol bill though.

Kirkby, was a disaster waiting to happen for the club and supporters, but a fucking lovely payday for those two faced lying shithouses in the boardroom.

they failed for DIFFERENT reasons, KD, bill lied his socks off to keep power.
DK  failed because true supporters of this great club, got off their arse and from behind keyboards and did something, showing the board for the inept and corrupt tvvats they are.

Toulouse: Bayern has an eye on Capoue
Moussa Sissoko, target Olympique de Marseille , may not be the one to leave Toulouse Rose City this winter. Etienne Capoue is also subject to stress. If Everton has already expressed his interest in the midfielder (24 years, 4 selections), the Bayern Munich is also in the running, reports L'Equipe on Friday. The Bavarian club think in midfield to replace the tricolor Ukrainian Anatoly Timotchouk, if it came from.

If Everton has already expressed his interest in the midfielder (24 years, 4 selections), the Bayern Munich is also in the running, reports L'Equipe on Friday. The Bavarian club think in midfield to replace the tricolor Ukrainian Anatoly Timotchouk, if it came from.

thats surely bollocks. A  club with Martinez and Gustavo want another DM?

After clubs such as Fenerbahçe or Tottenham, Everton and more particularly the Inter Milan are set to Younes Belhanda. A proposal that could tempt the Algerian international.

" I believe that since the beginning of the season, it does not meet the expectations and promises he hinted. It is normal to go elsewhere and see flames elsewhere. I believe that Montpellier is finished " . The words of Louis Nicollin president of MHSC, relayed by RMC confirms the trend. Younes Belhanda no longer Montpellier on February 1st. Prior to this, the leaders of the club héraultais demanding 15 million euros to release the player.

While the club Fenerbahçe agreed with the player on his salary, Turkish leaders were quickly cooled by the requirements Montpellier. See what other clubs point the tip of their nose. First in England Tottenham was interested. Again, the amount requested by the club champions of Ligue 1 has calmed the ardor of the Spurs. Everton would also inquired about the Moroccan.

I honestly think he would start, especially given the likelihood that Gibson and Mirallas will continue to miss a lot of games through injury

Confidence (and ability) wise he is far superior to Naismith, personally think he would be first choice down the right hand side, unless Mirallas is back to full fitness

Well there's always injuries, suspensions, form, fatigue to think about in a squad. Lets just say Donovan doesn't make our strongest 11 (which is arguable) he would most definately get on the pitch from the bench every week as an important sub, game changer I u like...

Now lets be realistic, we will and do have injuries ect. How many games would he have played this season?
Well he would of started all the games mirallas missed on the RW - must be 13/14 games.
Fellaini's 3 match ban would of led to donovans inclusion.
Even Gibson/Neville injuries could well of seen Fellaini drop back Donovan inc.

On paper he may just miss out as first 11 now but very rarely do you have all 11 available and he's that versatile he can cover...with equal quality may i add...3/4 posistions.
He'd see plenty of playing time!

It's not just whether Donovan would play following I juries and suspensions. I'd like to think that Donovan as a squad option would allow Moyes to choose the best team for any given match from a tactical point of view. But then we haven't had many squad options for a while anyway.

I remember at the start of the season there was a thread on our strongest 11, most thought Osman would be eased out of the team this season. Not that I get everything right or anything but I did state that if fit he would start every single game.  He does, and he is one of Moyes' favourites, though personally I think he is there on merit too.

Moyes loves Landon Donovan, and he would well get a game for us now. If not on the wings, then to give Jelavic a rest up front for a bit. If he wants to come back he wont have to worry about getting a game. We never have everyone fit and there are always plenty of boo boys in the team whose place he could take!

Nothing in particular, but the fact we cant keep a clean sheet for love nor money lends weight to the idea of bringing Lescott back to pair him up with Jags.

Because he's boss

He's keeping him for aslong as he can cos Toure is away. Once we sell Heitinga Moyes will put in a concrete offer, and Lescott will want to come back. Then City will probably go and buy another centre back. Just blag to him that Distin is shit and he would walk into our team init.

I'm not sure about lescott deal. Can't see it happening by what Mancini and lescott are saying. But what else they gonna say tbh.
Not overly fussed as far as this season goes. Keeping the 4 we have should be enough to challange 4th this year.

More bothered about getting another CM and a Landon Donovan. That IMO would improve us enough to really challange the top 4.

It's as easy to keep it in here as it is having multiple threads on the forums. It also ends up with two or three threads on the same subject when people can't be bothered looking to see if one already exists.

Unfortunately, whether it's this thread, or multiple player threads, there's always going to be a lot of pages to read through.

It's a little harder at the moment as there aren't many players getting linked, so there's not much of the ITK posters with information.

They may be increasing the debt by borrowing a sum of money and using the increased TV income later this year as collateral , which means if we spend in January our summer window cash  will have to come from player sales.

We having nothing to lose and everything to gain by spending this window.  If we spend and get the 4th spot then the CL (if we win the qualifier) will bring in £££.  If we dont the extra Sky money and the sale of Fellaini should cover it.

Exactly this.

We don't need to go mad the opportunity is NOW not in the summer!! If it all goes titts up with the TV money and Fellaini money we can easily cover the fee's with a little left over for 1 or 2 fresh faces in the summer to go again next season even without Fellaini.

We've been in this position before, and haven't splashed the cash. We had a chance to cement ourselves as one of those clubs that is guaranteed of Europe, but we didn't take it.

Worryingly I think we are all just wishing for something to happen.

Nobody seems to be going. There is no cash. How can we sign anybody?

Really..

Jan 2012:
In: Jelavic, Gibson, Pienaar (loan)

That only came from selling a player though! Not unreasonable to think we might have actually bought a player where the money hasnt come from player sales since we bought Yakubu in 2007!

However, I dont get why anyone thinks we are likely to spend money without selling players every single window. We have no money to spend, we can only spend if we sell players and we are running low on players we can sell for a decent value that we wouldnt really miss, which makes any permanent transfers unlikely. Basically at the moment, we are down to Heitinga. And if he doesnt want to go at this point then not much will happen bar a loan for someone.

Very little happens early in any window, for any club. Off the top of my head, the only two fairly major deals I can think of are Ba and Sturridge.

Very few clubs are making moves at the moment or spending big money, I think Wigan have brought two or three in, I don't think any would be players that would improve us? It's just the usual prophets of doom chunter out the same shite at the start, and throughout every window.

We have 3 capable CBs and I reckon we could make do with a loan striker in for competition but CM is the area we seem to struggle most in.

If he wants money he will go to Rubin, I think his main concern is playing for a team that might go down.  He wants to raise his profile in case his International ban is overturned, he can't do that in the Championship

Newcastle's trying to become a French team. Yanga-Mbiwa and Haïdara incoming, it seems, with Sissoko and/or Gouffran possibly following.

Brek Shea's rumoured team was Stoke, but MLS is haggling over a transfer fee. Stoke offered ~£2M, MLS wants more like £4M. (MLS gets something like 1/3 or even 1/2 of any incoming transfer fee, as the clubs are subsidiaries of the league and not completely individual entities.)
(In my opinion, he might be worth the £4M if he'd been playing in a European league instead of MLS, and playing similarly. FC Dallas was pretty bad, finishing closer to last place than 7th, and Shea only scored 3 in 28 matches. Also, he had a bone operation in his foot recently.)

To make this post Everton-related, the Echo is stirring up the Belhanda and Charlie Austin rumours again.

£3m is a small enough fee to be just affordable to us and the rest would surely come from the Sky money.

Problem is really that the ball is still in Rennes court. If they want to sell it will to be to the highest bidder. Im sure a good wage packet will turn him in the end. Most footballers arent like Mirralas who took a descision based on him wanting to play regular footy and not just the pay packet.

If the money doesnt sway him and he is serious about wanting premier league football then expect to see him sign....for QPR!

Boy, that has Everton written all over it. At least it shows he isn't a.) interested only in only in money and b.) unlike some has had a look at the league table before signing.

This seems like a transfer that may drag on until the close of the window and there is enough pressure on all parties to act.

You obviously dont play football manager 2013 as his stats are ridicules, in fact he could become world class, and my scout had stats of 20 for ability and 20 for potential and he told me this, therfore you are wrong!!!!!

on a more serious note, his def not shit mate, has caps for france, was in the french team of the year and if you watch the guy for 22 his a quality player. how do you know he has a bad attitude and not professional bar one silly mistake he made.He cnt be that bad has captained nearly every side his played for internationally.

You aint got a clue..

On 5 August 2010, M'Vila was officially called up to the senior team for the first time by new manager Laurent Blanc for the team's friendly match against Norway on 11 August 2010. He earned his first senior cap in the match starting in the defensive midfielder role. Despite France losing the match 2–1, M'Vila earned rave reviews for his performance, with many media outlets in France naming him the team's player of the match.[46][47][48] Following his debut, M'Vila appeared in five consecutive matches for France. After starting in the team's UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina in September 2010, he became the only player to feature as a starter in Blanc's first three matches as manager. On 25 March 2011, M'Vila completed 92.5 percent of his 134 attempted passes in a 2–0 UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying win over Luxembourg. The feat was the best by any France player in an international match since 2006.

a bit harsh me think. M'Vila  did play the 2 U21 matches against Norway and if he was crap I think Trevor Steven should be allowed to express his view without being called clueless.  Have you seen him (not talking youtube clip) ?   I can say I haven't seen him (like lots of other players we are "linked to") as I only watch Everton and Denmark. Reading on the internet he seems a great prospect - but I'll give Trevor Steven that his night out doesn't give me an impression of a footballer fit to play for Everton - to mutch Drenthe and Van der Meyde, One of the last players getting banned from the Danish U21 team was Peter Degn - for visiting a casino late in the night when playing for Everton, We all know what nightlife and english beer did to him.

I remembering him coming at in a game at Stamford Bridge. Might well have been his only appearance.

No -  but he did manage to get us in to a closed training session at Bellefield when Walther Smith was manager  :thumbsup:   That's probably my only happy memory of Degn at Everton. A great talent but went abroad to early (at least before he was acting like an adult)

a bit harsh me think. M'Vila  did play the 2 U21 matches against Norway and if he was crap I think Trevor Steven should be allowed to express his view without being called clueless.  Have you seen him (not talking youtube clip) ?   I can say I haven't seen him (like lots of other players we are "linked to") as I only watch Everton and Denmark. Reading on the internet he seems a great prospect - but I'll give Trevor Steven that his night out doesn't give me an impression of a footballer fit to play for Everton - to mutch Drenthe and Van der Meyde, One of the last players getting banned from the Danish U21 team was Peter Degn - for visiting a casino late in the night when playing for Everton, We all know what nightlife and english beer did to him.

Two under 21 games doesn't define a player and one night out on the piss doesn't confirm someone's character. Fair enough if you have seen they guy often then call him crap. however that's just as naive as people who think gibson is shit.

Don't think I agree wiith that. I think that shows a bad character going out drinking in between 2 important games for the U21. Don't think the French FA was impressed either - and perhaps there is a reason why he got an extra year ban. I'm not calling him crap - I was just making the point that Trevor Steven in fact had seen him play 2 full matches. How many matches have you seen him play ?

Maybe he was hungover in those u-21 matches. :)

I've seen nothing of the guy, I haven't even looked on youtube as it doesn't seem like we're even in the race right now.

Logic says there was/is probably a player in there given the teams that were after him...but maybe his development has stalled for various reasons ala Rodwell.

Looks like it should be done by the weekend at least.

In theory, again without having seen him I think we'd benefit greatly from a more mobile DM/CM that allows Fellaini to go further up. As seen on Monday without Gibson or Fellaini in there right now we look awful and really struggle to get going. If we could sort out any position on the pitch with our limited finances it'd probably be this one for me.

Who knows, if we could structure a deal that meant 3 mil down and 3-4 mil later...it could work if he really doesn't want to go to the other clubs on offer. Rennes I'm sure like Rubin's offer best, but I don't think an English club would need to pay so much and if he doesn't want a move to Rubin then QPR's offer of around 6-7 mil is probably what we'd need to scrape together (in installments I'm sure).

All we're going off right now is the knowledge that an English team offered a structured deal in comparison to matching the bid in full...which has the smell of us about it...but could equally be a few other cash strapped PL teams. That and the fact we were in for a similar player before the window closed and it's 2+2 = 480 time.

I'd rate this at 10% chance of happening right now, but at least it's something fun to speculate about as really there hasn't been much else of interest so far.

At least I am not judging him by the looks of some stats at Football Manager but ofcourse I don't have too much to show for either. Anyway I think there are som clear indications to why David Moyes is not after this man.

Its incredible not to judge his character because of getting wasted two days before the decisive qualification match for the U21 European Championship Finals.

Espescially when he was one of the experienced players sent down to France U21 to make sure they got through. The fact that he got a 1-2 year ban from all international football from his own assosciation should also be a clear indication of an attitude problem.

If you look further into his career he left his youth club because of problems and his first manager in Rennes has often spoken about his problems with attitude.

Look at Newcastle this season, they have loads of players wanting to go away when problems arrives, at Everton we need players who is highly motivated to play for the club if not we would have fallen to pieces every time we sold a key player. Let me also remind you that M'Vilas performances this season has led to his own fans booing him. Yet again a hot prospect with the wrong attitude to make it, for me that fits Newcastle or a russian money club.

Calling him crap is probably exaggerated but he for sure will not fit Everton Football Club just because of some neat passes once in a while.

A lot more than twice, due to gambling reason's lol.and i was talking more about trevor comment with regards to him being crap. many players have done silly things from a young age, and gone on to become established players with good reputations and gone onto captain there country.One mistake doesn't define him, i still stick by that fair enough if he was consistently getting club bans etc.but i dnt think his a joey barton or drenthe

the football manager stats was a JOKE mate hence why i wrote underneath, "on a more serious note". and you could be correct! however watching him twice makes me think you could be wrong. especially if old harry and wenger have been after him and i recon they have a bit of a better idea.

we haven't really been linked with anyone though, and usually when we are linked with someone they don't end up signing.

In fact this thread is kind of proving that our ITK's are actually useless!none of them have anything for us!

If we do sign someone, I expect one of them to say something along the lines of 'we knew this deal was happening but we couldn't say anything in case it put the deal in jeopardy'

ah yes because a football transfer wouldn't go ahead because some fanboy shouted his mouth off on twitter!

M'Vila has signed for Rubin Kazan.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21180592 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21180592)

Quote
He preferred a move to Everton, who were also prepared to offer £6.2m rising to £6.6m but it may have been split into two payments - £3.3m in January followed in the summer by £2.9m or £3.3m if they qualified for the Champions League.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21180592 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21180592)
Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila has disappointed a host of Premier League sides by completing a £9.6m move to Russian club Rubin Kazan.

M'Vila was wanted by QPR and Fulham, while the previously unnamed English team keen to sign the 22-year-old France international were Everton.

It is also understood Paris Saint-Germain registered late interest.

But he has signed a four-year contract with Rubin worth £3.75m a year after tax, including a £16.6m buyout clause.

M'Vila passed a medical on Wednesday before finalising his move.

"I am glad that I have signed a contract with Rubin," he said. "The transfer is a new challenge in my career."

Rubin coach Kurban Berdyev added: "I am very glad that such player as Yann M'Vila will play in Rubin. He is one of the young and prospective European players, leading midfielder of the French Championship.

"We would like to mention that M'Vila's transfer negotiations were complicated, several European clubs were interested in this player."

Chief among those suitors was QPR, with boss Harry Redknapp saying the Hoops were "very close" to signing the Frenchman.

They made a bid of £6.2m, rising to £6.6m if they avoided relegation, but M'Vila was reluctant to join the Premier League's bottom side

He preferred a move to Everton, who were also prepared to offer £6.2m rising to £6.6m but it may have been split into two payments - £3.3m in January followed in the summer by £2.9m or £3.3m if they qualified for the Champions League.

Fulham indicated in December they would be willing to pay £5.8m, but no formal offer was submitted, while PSG's interest arrived too late.

The situation was complicated by M'Vila's ban from representing France until June 2014 after an unauthorised night out while on Under-21 duty.

If the France Football Federation (FFF) were willing to reduce his punishment he may have pushed for a move to England or to stay at Rennes, where he was under contract until 2015.

But with the FFF maintaining its stance, M'Vila opted for a lucrative move to Russia and and will attempt to reignite his international career once the ban is lifted.

Another factor working against the Premier League teams was the UK tax rate, which is currently set at 50%. Although this is due to reduce to 45% in April 2013, it still compares unfavourably to Russia.

Rennes's asking price last summer was almost £17m and they reportedly rejected a £28m bid from an English team a year ago.

However, a series of off-field problems have seen M'Vila's stock fall and the French outfit were determined to offload him in January.

He has made 16 league appearances this season and has helped Rennes to the French League Cup final.

Obviously didn't prefer a move to us

It depends on when the offers were made dear boy.

Maybe we offered the same as Rubin then the added another 50% blowing us out the water.

IF he really wanted to come, he could have held out. I don't expect he was that arsed, and I'm sure Rubin were offering a lot more in terms of wages which didn't hurt either I'm sure. Also if it is true that he really can't play for 6 months, it's hard to see it as a choice made for footballing reasons.

It's possible. Sissoko might want a 3M signing bonus. M'Villa might of wanted 5% of the transfer fee for example. sissoko might want 70k wages, m'villa 40K. Who knows?

My point is cheap transfer fee doesn't mean the player is cheap.

Maybe it's Moyes way of filtering out the twats. If we are linked with a player, maybe Moyes tells him to be quiet and that he'll make the deal happen.  If that player or his agent starts whoring themselves to every club in Europe in the meantime then he's made of the wrong stuff. If things stay quiet then maybe he trusts the player. But he can't make that decision until near the end of the window. Genius.

Its also quite possible Sissoko doesn't want to come to play for us for reasons football related or not
Title: Re: The ITK Thread: January Edition (Back With a Vengeance!)
Post by: ForzaItalia on January 25, 2013, 03:52:03 AM
It's possible. Sissoko might want a 3M signing bonus. M'Villa might of wanted 5% of the transfer fee for example. sissoko might want 70k wages, m'villa 40K. Who knows?

My point is cheap transfer fee doesn't mean the player is cheap.

Lots of possibles, mights and who knows there mate. You think Newcastle for example will pay Sissoko more than Rubin are paying M'Villa? Of course not.

Anyway, as has been said, for one reason or another we and or he aren't interested. My point is, cheap, does mean cheap in the grand scheme of things. There are still signing on fees, agents fees and wages to pay no matter how much the transfer fee is. 

Let's just agree to disagree  :thumbsup:

Exactly. Like the fact that Newcastle is apparently trying to become Neuchâtel, since the previous club by that name went under. (Yes, I know they're Swiss, not French, but the joke works...)

Odemwingie has handed in a transfer requezt, when he first came he was excellent, but i have seen a few motd clips recently and he has been beyond shite.  So is he still any good or is the motd impression of him more accurate?

Actually scratch that qpr have tapped him up and wba have said no to transfer request.

I wouldn't mind Odemwingie he's a decent finisher, doubt we are in for him mind. Too expensive and doesn't run the channels enough for Moyesys. I heard an awful shout of Kevin Doyle being in talks with us on twitter last night, I hope it's not true!

Radz, AJ and Bent ran the channels.

Nearly every other striker we've had under Moyes has faced shouts of them being lazy so I don't see how this idea that Moyes just wants people who run the channels.

I'm not saying that's all he wants, but he wants forward players to work back and Winge will not be that kind of workhorse. Anyway moot point he's going to QPR, We're getting a Kevin Doyle type signing or some loan signing we've never heard of on deadline day:  :bonk:

According to the bbc Everton were Mvillas first choice in England unfortunately Rubin blew us out of the water with the fee and wages.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21180592 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21180592)


In a way its encouraging that we have 6 odd million to spend on players.
Im not sure if a defensive midfielder is Moyes number one priority for the window or he just rated Mvilla very highly. If it is a dm he is looking for its a shame we missed out on Sissoko and even frimpong. Capoue is still available however.

Still not concerned... If the right players are available at the right money i'm still sure we will bring in 2/3 players. It was always going to be the tail end of the window before we realisticaly could do anything and that's when players become available and the deals start to happen.

He also said he can't see anything happening. Last year we had sold bily which allowed us to bring jela and pienaar in. This year we've havent sold anyone so aren't likely to spend anything. He will mean we might get a loan late on if clubs give up hope on selling them this window and accept a loan deal.

I think there's also an element that where we have little money it benefits us to keep our cards close to our chest and do the deals last minute. It doesn't take other clubs much to blow us out of the water in terms of finances so leaving it until the last minute stops that competitive process as much and stops others joining in on securing our targets. Admittedly we may miss one or two targets but I expect we get better value for money doing it?

We already lost out on a player who we bid 6 mill for! So i assume as are looking to strengthen in certain areas, my guess would be CM and Striker. Maybe loan a CB. I honestly think we will see two players come in before the window shuts.
