I'm very surprised we've acted so quickly in the January transfer market - by negotiating transfers in December! Perhaps our 2009 injury crisis has given the board a kick up the backside to find players early and bring them in.

As for the player in question, sounds like another Moyes utility player, I wonder if he will cope with the physical nature of the British game?

I think its a very good bit of business by Moyes if it happens. Its pretty much a win win situation. (the thumbsup guy icon)

Hahaha, 'great bit of work by Moyes'. Nothing to do with Kenwright or Robert Elstone, they only get involved when something is shit.

Good addition, he's quite pacey if I'm not mistaken.

I'm from the states, and I've been an Everton fan for just over a year now.  As you might expect I am pretty excited about Landon going to play for us.  I'm not a huge consumer of the MLS, but he is soccer's representative here.  He is a massively popular and famous player, so you can expect some ulterior buzz and awareness in the US for Everton, which is a bonus to his obvious ability that hopefully we'll get to see.

Excited by this one, someone said in another thread he was past it but I think that is a hard argument to win when he is only 27!  This could be a renaissance for him and us.  I can't believe he has lost that much pace either.   Look forward to seeing him play, hopefully on the right short term.

Surely it's the defence we should be concentrating on?

Attack is the best form of defence, is it not? That and we should have the mighty Jags back soon. And by adding midfielders perhaps Heitinga can drop into CB, so we can see what he's like in his prefered role.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

fair point.

i doubt it will be long though until the regulars get their claws out for them again when we fail to sign another dozen players in january.

We need as many players we can get at the moment, so yes people would be unhappy if Kenwright and Elstone weren't able to bring in 3 or 4 players.

Ive never been a huge Kenwright basher mate, he is there if we like it or not. Im still gratefull for him saving us from agent J.

But I also think Moyes would of identified LD and then BK and Co. would move to sign him
