Really cant see him wanting to take the massive pay cut, nor can i see moyes allowing him to be paid alot more than our other players.
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

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.

l genuinely dont think he will move on either.

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!

Update for what I put up before, the little cunt Rick rolled me, what a fucking bellend, he will receive shit in the post , the cunt. Ha ha ha

Sent from Jekubs cave in the quarry
What a cunt, I'll go egg his house for you if you like! :P

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.
Telling, me! This kid a gun!

Would not be be surprised if he went to Europe soon on his form.
I'd be stoked if we got him here!

bit embarrassed about our lampard bid.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Lampard could have done a job for us. And it would have stopped the bugger scoring against us too.

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.

Taken with a cellar of salt.

Everton have reportedly made official enquiry with #WBA about availability of Peter Odemwingie #EFC

But, from a far more credible source:

Quote
Everton try to convince Pedro Leon to accept Premier League move. #EFC #RMCF #GET

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.
