Echo reporting he's a target in January with the possibility of getting him for free.

Brilliant player who we should have at least tried to sign about four years ago.

In comparison to the other Dutch players we’ve had he was positively golden.

Why? Like most of the foreign players/managers mentioned on here, I bet few have a flying clue what he is like or if he would be good for Everton. Of course the depth of knowledge on here could be far higher than I suspect it is. On the other hand....

Why do you always assume that no one on here has any football knowledge? You clearly don't follow football outside of Everton but plenty people on here follow football in other leagues and countries and have a decent knowledge of a lot of players. There's no need for the constant snide digs at people on here, pretty much every post you make dismisses stories and people's opinions as bollocks. If it annoys you that much don't come on here.

No. We definitely had Pat Van Den Hauwe before him and he may very well have played for Wales, but he was born in Dendermonde, which would make him Belgian.

Would Kevin Sheedy be classed as a foreigner? And for that matter any Rep of Ireland player playing for us prior to him? What is the definition of a foreigner in this case?

Strictly speaking, Yes. The Republic of Ireland is not strictly a home nation as such, but personally, I don't really consider an Irishman to be foreign. I don't know whether that's because Liverpool as a city has such strong Irish links, but I've never really considered the Republic of Ireland as abroad.

To complicate it even more, Sheedy was actually born in Wales.

I take it English may be not your first language? I had difficulty with the use of the last adjective followed by a verb then a noun. Not a good word construction at all. Try and re-phrase it.

At least that is more grammatically correct, apart from "me" for "my". The meaning is plain which is the main thing I suppose?

I think our issue stems from your misunderstanding of my informal or colloquial language. Sincere apologies.

I should really have hyphenated it to head-the-ball, or maybe capitalised it if we really are prioritising clarity of meaning over grammatical correctness.

I believe it’s called zero derivation, in which a verb is normalised into a noun. Common in informal speech and slang, often idiomatic as it is in this case.

Broken record meaning you constantly have a go at Williams. I'm unclear as to the relevance of Vinny Jones. Carry on.
