It has all gone quiet on the Fellaini contract extension. Is Bungling Bill going to allow him to run down his contract à la Pienaar?
This Club is being run worse than a circus... Get him to sign an extension now or sell him.
I am sure Billy Liar lives in another time dimension: "The Yobo sale will be completed in the next 48 hours" over a week now in real time...
Maybe the Fortress Funds will turn up in the next 24 hrs? Bill ? Go, you are worse than useless.

Expecting £5-6 million for him is wishful thinking ? he isn't worth anywhere close to that, take £2 million for him and have it done with, I reckon!

The Yobo deal is getting ridiculous, I'm all for getting the best price but recently we've been stung by not accepting decent bids for the Yak & Peanuts.
The Board are just completely clueless ? if they were players, we'd release the lot! SACK THE BOARD!!!!!!!

Surely one of the promoted teams or another prem club would be interested in a player swap. >Could he be the downpayment on N'Zogbia? Could we persuade QPR to part with Tarabant or whatever his name is.
Even a swap for Ricardo Fuller would at least give us another forward option. Why nobody at EFC ever pushes anything is beyond me.

Considerably more bookings than goals, a pirouette in the centre circle. sold a few wigs..sounds like a club legend to me.

As far as 50p head Yobo goes, I never forgive him for that shoelace tying incident or his teeing up of Shrek for his goal but FFS 48 hours in la-la land's head could mean forever...
12 Posted 10/07/2011 at 21:28:12
Now I have been told by a family member that my Blue and White festooned car with its EVERTON2 licence plate is a local target for ridicule or, what is even worse, pity.
13 Posted 10/07/2011 at 22:20:42
Cannot negotiate and buy players and now it would seem cannot negotiate the sale of players.
Keep up the good work Billy boy.
14 Posted 10/07/2011 at 23:02:05
I wonder whether you do not see the games, whether you are off your head, or a troll.
Crap ? Give me strength, FFS!
15 Posted 10/07/2011 at 23:26:57
As it is, nothing has happened and therefore we must again criticise Kenwright. I'm not saying Kenwright is good or anything, far from it, but perhaps Fellaini didn't want to sign it? Maybe his agent is on holiday?
Maybe everyone has done the normal calm thing and just thought, "Take it easy, Marouane, no need to disrupt your trip to Austria with contract talk. Enjoy your stay, we'll deal with that when we get back to Finch Farm."

Get ready for this season ? he is gonna destroy!!! COYB

Yobo, thank you for the service, you made a few mistakes but you were a true blue. Now I wish you all the best in Turkey (not Greece). The problem with him signing at the moment has a lot to do with the Chairman of Fenerbahce being in court and nothing got to do with Bill.

And as for saying he has been booked more times than he has scored, I think you will find all our players including Cahill will have been booked more times than they have scored.

I've a feeling Moyes has confidence in some of the young talent making a breakthrough, a repeat of Utd's class of 96 would be nice.
Before anyone says it, and yes, we'll probably get a few quid for them as well!
25 Posted 11/07/2011 at 09:58:53
The issue is quite simple. He will not commit to a new contract, he fancies winning something before he draws his pension...will he achieve that with Everton?? Not on our recent history.
If we do not want another Pienaar farce we have to sell him now... for reasonable money ? otherwise next season he will just let his contract run down and we'll be grovelling for a couple of mill around Christmas... again!

My point in the original post is once again the board at EFC are doing nothing proactive.
Come January 2013, when Fellaini has 6 months left on his contract and is let go for next to nothing, the same old "we thought he would sign" crap will be spun out by Billy Liar's media lovies.
29 Posted 11/07/2011 at 12:16:32
Short of a miracle, we can safely expect Fellaini to be sold in the next 12 months probably because he will not sign a contract. If he has a blinder of a season, the only positive is that one of the rich clubs will come sniffing and DM will get a decent pot of money to reinvest.
While the current board are in place, I really doubt we are going to do anything but remain reliant on selling a player or two every season to stay afloat.

31 Posted 11/07/2011 at 18:41:14
I couldnt say this about Hibbert for example, no offence intended at all on the lad. I just pray that we haven't got a "Gentleman's agreement" with Fellaini, à la Gosling, and we don't end up losing even more money through our board's mis-management.
32 Posted 11/07/2011 at 21:13:52
33 Posted 12/07/2011 at 03:34:36
Yeah we have a problem with ownership. Who can argue different?
But Moyes has maneuvered pretty well under fiscal constraint (what other team had a player leap 2 levels upward and score in double digits?).
I think we can make that last, frustrating, move into the big money this season.
34 Posted 12/07/2011 at 07:29:35
35 Posted 12/07/2011 at 10:50:55
I am more and more surprised by the two-faced attitude of a lot of fans on this subject. On one hand, we are on the brink of relegation, on the other hand, we should have easily beaten the WBAs and Boltons and therefore should have ended higher up the league.
I don't really have a point here, just thought this to be rather remarkable...
36 Posted 13/07/2011 at 03:55:21
I just go by what last season shows. All those one goal losses and all those draws.
We're right there. Moyes has re-built the squad these last 2 years. Why not it all comes together next season?
37 Posted 13/07/2011 at 04:10:02
My opinion is we were a goal or 2 away from jumping into the "Sky 4" group.
Of course I'm positive about this season. Why wouldn't I be. For all the frustrating losses and draws, we're right there. We're not some relegation side.

I was interested to see Diarra is surplus to requirements at Real Madrid. Anyone fancy Diarra plus £10m for Fellaini?
41 Posted 14/07/2011 at 20:09:59
However the facts speak for themselves - EVERTON ARE BETTER WITHOUT FELLAINI. Jesus why can't you all see that this person is a liability.....?!?!?!?
Sell the fuckin' clown and at least give Moyes some cash to spend.
Steve - Bill WILL go when someone comes in with a wedge to buy the club mate. Until someone wants to buy then we're worth FUCK ALL.
How is the fact that Fellaini is utter shite the Chairmans fault.....?!?!?
42 Posted 15/07/2011 at 08:42:56
Repeat - Moyes bought Fellaini.
Does that help you understand how fucking stupid you sound?
Sell a player you think is shite, to give money to a manager who bought the 'shite' player in the first place.
You also persist in telling us shite like..
"Bill WILL go when someone comes in with a wedge to buy the club mate".
Well you obviously know something nobody else does.
Those who followed the DK inquiry (the ACTUAL inquiry rather than the Echo version) discovered that Everton are/were NOT for sale and instead, simply looking for 'investment'.
(if you have EVIDENCE of something different, please share)
43 Posted 18/07/2011 at 09:21:59
The 'evidence' is there as our record is better without him. Simple as that.
I never defended the purchase of Fellaini - in fact it's just another example of why Kenwright doesn't want to give the manager money; because he buys shite like Fellaini.
My point is that it's not Kenwrights fault that nobodys wants to buy Everton, nor is it his fault when the manager buys someone that can't kick a fuckin' football either.
I've nee idea what 'poltroon' means; it sounds like a Jock golf course. What I do know is that you don't seem to be able to read...
Thank you and goodnight.
