I thought Pienaar was one of the few older players that Koeman may have kept. Moyes is checking him out.

You never know! He might have a cracking season. He was still coming out of his injury phase. It would be a nightmare on here if he turned on the style. :)

Who's Moyes assistant, wasn't there talk of Gary Neville getting it?

Bottom paragraph of this article @gash. Still not decided who he's bringing in. Neville is in the frame though.

Didn't Moyes have a soundbite the other day where he said that if he'd settle for fourth bottom if he could get players in place today that would help them improve in the future?

Because Pienaar, much as I love him, is pretty much the antithesis of that sentiment. You don't sign Pienaar unless you're focusing on now.

Sunderland are stupid to sign a player like Pienaar. As much as I like the guy, he's long past it.

He's only there on trial at the moment isn't he?

Don't know whether he can still handle the rigours of the Premier League, the odd glimpses last season suggest he looked knackered after five minutes. But he was also another player largely frozen out by Matrinez then suddenly thrown in for a few minutes here and there, which makes it hard to get match fit and sharp and hard to judge if he's still got it or not.

Don't think he's even on trial, just training with them.

Considering we had Tyrone Mears training with us at one point then I'm not sure there's much to read into it.

Tbf im pretty sure I read they have barely got a squad so, thinking for the now is probably a decent idea

This is one of the things I struggled to understand about Martinez.

I felt like he did the same with Gibson.

Looking at N'Zogbia as well - didn't he try to sign hm a couple of times when he was here? Maybe he will make a move for Riquelme and Fernandes to complete his wishlist.

I just looked at their squad on Wikipedia.

Wow. For a club that buys so often, that is bare bones. Point taken.

I wish he'd stop mentioning Everton in his comments to the press. Fuck off now eh. We've moved on from you.

Leave him alone, he's demented with excitement.  The Grim Reaper will have him once again, Goodison Park, February 2017.  7-0.

Yup and Kone, Naismith, Niasse, Deulofeu, Mirallas etc. How anyone (Niasse aside) can build up any form or sharpness getting the odd minute here and there is a mystery.

I really hope rodwell can get his career back on track. I used to love him as a player for us but I'd still like him to make it.
