I see that Seamus Coleman has expressed his hopes that our very own Sideshow Bob, Fellaini, signs a new contract and stays.
If I remember correctly, this was the line taken last year with Pienaar and about the same time of year too.
Added to the noises from Moyes et al that a deal is "not too far away" this has the feeling of déjà vu. Or a recurring nightmare. I just hope the Bank doesn't want all of the cash this time....

We've got half decent players at the club being left to rot in the reserves because Moyes is shit scared to drop Osman, Bily, Saha, etc... Fellaini, Rodwell, Baines, Jagz should all go before Moyes ruins the lot of them.
See how shit Arteta became the last two years having to put up with the Gobshite tactics our the manager uses.... He is on fire at Arsenal now.
Moyes out before the squad disappears.

He'd walk in the others. Far better than Pienaar?
5 Posted 04/11/2011 at 23:27:27
Why is it we still have fans who haven't woken up to what's wrong here? We are being slowly dragged into oblivion by Kenwright and Moyes and you still can't see it. It's all a big joke and we will soon be bought out... FFS ? WAKE UP!!!
Were you not embarrassed by Moyes being used as a puppet/muppet in front of the Sky cameras today, talking about takeovers? Those twats must think we are all thick as shit.

Or even which ones he has come on as sub?
I'd be surprised if it was more than half a dozen irregular appearances over 2 seasons.

Give Fellaini until close of business friday 23rd Dec, I mean how long does it take, both sides must have figures they won't go over or won't go under.
If he doesn't sign, leak, circulate the fact and see who if any comes in in Jan for him.
We will then see if he is as good as his Dad / Agent bigs him up to be.
My big worry is that if we do get an offer that tempts us That the banks will hijack what's left after we pay off what we owe for him.

Comments about players 'rotting' at Everton is bizarre. Arteta, Lescott, Pienaar, Jags, Cahill, Baines, Donovan and Colemen have all improved greatly under Moyes.... but then that's an inconvenient truth for some.
13 Posted 05/11/2011 at 07:46:01
"Fellaini can double his money easily at most Premier League clubs "
I think that is the reason most players move to any club.Money.Remember Robinho at City? He thought he'd signed for Chelsea.His agent just got the move which paid the most.
14 Posted 05/11/2011 at 10:01:50
If our best little spaniard was still here he wouldn't even get into our team on current form.
Our midfield should be built around Powell and Barkley.
Would we really miss him? I don't think so.

17 Posted 05/11/2011 at 10:29:27
Why should our midfield be build around Barkley? What has he actually done in the games he's played? People are going far to over board about Barkley.
Fellaini is twice the player Barkley is. At the moment at least.

£10 milion for Arteta was a good deal for Everton,and i do not agree that "he is on fire" at his new club.
Certainly the way they play will suit Arteta,but there have been no "man of the match" performances from him to date.
I think you will see when JW gets back fit,Arteta may even drop to the bench.
20 Posted 05/11/2011 at 11:39:51
Of course he is the best player by a distance..
Its all the killer defence splitting passes.. oh.. its all the set pieces he takes with such precision.. oh.. it must be the goals he scores from midfield, double figures a cert each season.. oh.. box to box bursts.. oh.. fuck it, just watch how well he plays today against Newcastle then, you wil see.. oh.. suspended again..
Anyway, he must be good enough to become Evertons highest earner ever, cos his dad thinks he is great !

From what i have seen comparing the 2, Fellaini is better than Rodwell in every department. He is far more involved in every game, he is better defensively breaking up play more than Rodwell, he's more effective going forward, uses the ball better the Rodwell, better in the air, covers more ground in a game and i would be very suprised if he didnt have a better pass completion rate or make more forward passes than Rodwell in a game rather than safety first sidways and backwards passes that only end up getting hoofed up the pitch anyway.
24 Posted 05/11/2011 at 11:58:37
I would much rather see Rodwell sold personally as I think he is the most overrated hyped up player I have ever seen! The new Carrick!

26 Posted 05/11/2011 at 12:13:32
27 Posted 05/11/2011 at 12:20:05
He's a better player than Rodwell.

Still, I bow to your superior football knowledge.
32 Posted 05/11/2011 at 13:40:03
People like Hibbert and Osman should have been sent packing long ago. They are not Prem.class. Some of the others paly well now and again but nobody with any real consistancy except Baines and Howard. Th esystem Moyes plays doesn't help either. Until Moyes goes you will not see any improvement in this team.
33 Posted 05/11/2011 at 17:07:18
34 Posted 05/11/2011 at 22:58:26
We have had class players on loan including Arteta at first and Howard so why did he not strengthen the squad way back after he let Mikel go along with Pienaar, Yaks and Beckford.
Other teams seem to have gotten some good loan players. Moyes got Straqualursi but doesn't seem to rate him so who was responsible for bringing him in?
Drenthe obviously has talent but has to play with others who are lacking.
Moyes just seems to be dropping more and more clangers with each game.
35 Posted 06/11/2011 at 00:56:55
Ryan "good in the air" you're joking aren't you, Koldrup was better, Fellaini can't jump and seldom wins headers.
At least we were much better yesterday without him than we have been previously with him.

Jacobsen was light years ahead of Hippo yet wasn't worthy of a place. What hold he has on Moyes I'd love to know. He wouldn't get a game at any other PL club. As for Felli, he has a contract until 2013 so I don't understand all the fuss
