You said it was a done deal a month ago.

Since then Manchester United have had bids rejected and a week into the transfer window he's still an Everton player.

That's pretty much what is boils down too.

Just thought id respond to some of the comments on this thread.. Firstly, when i was young growing up in australia, i always loved football. Me and my dad would stay up watching premier league, and i genuinely don't know why, but we followed everton and fell in love. I supported everton from afar, and had an opportunity to move overseas, and chose the uk, largely due to my love of football, and everton.

After all of that, going to my first game at goodison was a religious experience. Probably something that can't be explained to someone who has grown up with the club, and gone to games week in and week out. We lost 6-1 to arsenal, and it was the best day of my life.

I do have someone who i catch up with now and then, who because of his position, i respect what he says about football. When we catch up, the whole conversation is about football, and i probe him about what he knows about our beloved club. What he tells me is possibly something he heard from another agent, or in the grape vine.. and i share it on here.

The last comment i made was a touch arrogant, when the bid for baines came through.. but it was also in response to the crowd of people who were saying 'baines will never leave, and moyes will never try and take him.. your full of shit..etc' those same people are now trying to rip it apart by saying 'anyone could have predicted that moyes would want baines etc. So due to that, i think its fair to be pissed off a touch.

Long story short, i love this club, and i dare say as much as most, if not all of you. Definately not going to post anymore things i hear from my mate, but just think the comments made are a touch harsh, im not some WUM, i just love this club, and love talking about it with other fans who are as passionate as me.

 

Ah, you're Australian, that explains everything.

Did you enjoy the Lions' game this morning?


(I am joking of course, I have Australian family)

Fair enough, but your mate doesn't half talk some shite. Just don't listen to him, as an Evertonian you should know better than most how volatile and fragile transfer deals are, they can break down literally minutes before signing the contract. There's no such thing as a deal being "as good as done", it's either done and official or still up in the air.

Take it easy Dejo.  I presume like the rest of us you hope you are actually wrong about Baines and he ends up staying!
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

i probably took what he said too literally. It was along the lines of - "moyes has him as his no1 target, and baines wants to go with him. from what i've heard this deal will get tied up this week"

i would hate baines to leave. I would be a touch more comfortable if he did leave and it was moyes spending the kitty, really unsure of RM with that kind of money

hate the way people have a go at someone for passing information on

[open question] if you'd been told something, would you pass it on?

to be fair, i get the cynicism. On the other hand, if i just wanted to get on here and wind people up, given my current reputation, i would probably create a new account. thats not my intention

I don't think people have so much of a problem with it, reading back the original post seemed to die down quickly. I think the problems occurred more after the second wave from Dejo where he seemed to take an arrogant stance when Utd had reportedly made an initial offer (quite a while after he announced it was a done deal) stating how he was right all along.

To be honest if he didn't claim to have a mate who's an agent I'd say its just been an educated guess in the hope it will increases his profile. But I'm not arsed either way the important thing is if Baines stays or goes really.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

I fully believe that's what happened, I can even believe that your mate genuinely believed what he told you. But ask yourself this: "If I was in Moyes's position, would I reveal to an agent who my number one target is? Would I the fuck. I'd hint at several players without actually saying anything definite."

Yeah, and I have done, as have you. But when someone proclaims its a done deal, then they deserve all the stick they get imo.

He could easily be making this up, at least tell us who the source is.
