Well, the transfer window opens on Monday and all Evertonians will be trawling the media for the slightest hint of the cavalry coming over the hill.
Doddy assures us Moyesie`s got it all boxed off and apart from having to first sell Bily ? and probably one or two others ? our manager has already done his mid-winter job.
Zamora has been mentioned as has Owen. Macheda is a name thrown around and Spurs are on the point of loaning is Pienaar... well, maybe!
But who do you wish for? Striker or midfielder?Perhaps both ? god knows we could do with them!
Truth to tell, we shall probably still be speculating a month from today as we await the arrival of yet another promising young goalie from Cambridge!

Lets see how many fans we can lose???
6 Posted 29/12/2011 at 15:41:28
The Straw Man-- without a doubt Louis Saha
The Tin Man--- Bily, if he only had some heart.
7 Posted 29/12/2011 at 16:00:31
Alex Young and Roy Vernon up front.
8 Posted 29/12/2011 at 15:59:50
He is out of favour, Moyes knows him well from his Preston days and he is available on loan?!?
He has got to be better than the South American.......
9 Posted 29/12/2011 at 16:04:31
Krancar, Pavlyuchenko, Pienaar (only if Spurs pay us to take him back).

The cowardly lion ; Moyes who lacks the courage to go for 3 points.
The tin man - Kenwright who has no real heart for the club but also eeds a suit of armour for all the brickbats heading his way.

I'd also like our manager to remember what made him so good in the past; the ability to find and motivate average players beyond recognition, the strong personality that made him a rallying point for Everton. Without these, Moyes has turned into just another Pulis/McLeish-style pro-licence clone. He's so downbeat he'll struggle to persuade anyone to come here!
I'd also like to wish all Blues a Happy New Year and to remember that regardless of whether you like/dislike Moyes' brand of football/hoofball, it doesn't stop any of us being Evertonians who want Everton to do well. After all, we'll be here long after the current employees have gone!
16 Posted 29/12/2011 at 18:54:34
Tim Howard wasn't in the top 10 of 'saves to be made' and I would guess he would be at no 20.
Something is badly wrong here, so what I can wish for is a change at Finch Farm. We might need a new player or two, or it could be done with the players we have, but Moyes has to look again afresh at what we do.
Steve Round - what does he do? What is his influence on how we play? I suspect it's very negative. Maybe some new blood in that department.
17 Posted 29/12/2011 at 19:25:47
Moyes, never to speak any of the following"Gunfight/trackback/No Money/Great Chairman//Jimmy Mac is a better player now.
18 Posted 29/12/2011 at 19:35:33
Makes you think where Baines would be with a better manager?
I'd settle for no new players just the manager and the chairman Pissing Off to the Championship before they take us there. A new regime would see the existing players would have smiles on their faces, as well as the fans.
19 Posted 29/12/2011 at 19:47:41
We should go for Marcus Pedersen of Vitesse Arnheim, he was a real goal hungry striker before he played there. Could be fairly cheap as Vitesse hardly plays him. Many pundits belive he is the next top striker for Norway if he can get regular playing time.
20 Posted 29/12/2011 at 19:54:49
21 Posted 29/12/2011 at 20:07:52
The re-signing of Faddie was a joke and that of Donovan a sop but this news is a bloody insult. How far have we got to fall before `the Chuckle Brothers` feck off?
22 Posted 29/12/2011 at 20:41:58
My wish is for this to be the last season of Misery Moyes and Captain Useless.
23 Posted 29/12/2011 at 20:45:47
Our defense has been one of the tightest in the league and we have dominated a lot of games. I genuinely believe that the only thing seperating us from a solid top 8 finish is a good striker. And then maybe another one to play next to or behind him!
Sadly such players are not in our price range and so you have to take chances.
I'll go for one or two from Nicky Maynard, Marvin Sordell, Pavyluchenko, Berbatov, Defoe, Amauri, Jelavic.
Either this or a surprising and successful run in the team from Vellios and McAleny....
24 Posted 29/12/2011 at 20:55:00
25 Posted 29/12/2011 at 21:09:37
The window doesn`t open until Monday and BK has already indicated that funds will be made available to Davey should the right players become available. For his part, the manager has announced that he is looking to sign one or two more in addition to Landon.
Shall we all wait to judge the veracity of these statements until 31 January, please?
26 Posted 29/12/2011 at 21:31:31
I'd like to know when the Abdullayev dude is coming back from Kazakhstan though.
27 Posted 29/12/2011 at 21:49:47
Of course he would need to learn a bit more but a player like that will become very good.
Any young striker that knows how to score a lot of goals is worth hunting for, and for us to loose to a small welsh club is embarrassing to say the least.
28 Posted 29/12/2011 at 23:21:33
You are either really naive or just a wind-up merchant. I think the latter.
29 Posted 30/12/2011 at 00:01:17
30 Posted 30/12/2011 at 00:49:44
Team, I present my case for Dimitar Berbatov. Shoot me down, it is my wish and I bet a £5m deal for a player we can get 3 years use from represents an ideal opportunity for our club and further to subsidise his wages, sell or give LS away. Seems a German team want him also, and they think a deal can be done, so why not us??
31 Posted 30/12/2011 at 02:34:37
32 Posted 30/12/2011 at 10:30:00
33 Posted 30/12/2011 at 10:50:08
34 Posted 30/12/2011 at 10:46:56
Cannot really picture Berbatov defending corners and then legging it 80 yards up the pitch for a break.
On another note, why would he want to come to us when he could go back to Leverkusen and maybe play in the CL next year?
35 Posted 30/12/2011 at 12:24:57
36 Posted 30/12/2011 at 12:25:06
37 Posted 30/12/2011 at 12:26:48
And another thing: how the hell do we attract a buyer when a part-timer tells us to piss off? Fuck of, Bill, and take Moyes with you for fuck's sake, God help us.
38 Posted 30/12/2011 at 12:35:40
39 Posted 30/12/2011 at 12:48:30
Stop the fucking speculation as it only gets me more angry cause I know it is not going to happen. We are not getting the Arteta money, why do people think Moyes went after Donnelly in the first place? Because that is where he needs to spend it, in the low region costing players
40 Posted 30/12/2011 at 17:55:44
Damn, I really thought and hoped Kenwright could keep his promise this time, after all we have recived plenty in terms of income in the summer.
If Moyes doesnt get any cash at all in January or in the summer then there needs to be a massive uproar from the fans.
We cant just sit back and watch our squad get skinned every transfer window.
41 Posted 30/12/2011 at 21:24:07
`The man`wont let us down,you`ll see!
42 Posted 30/12/2011 at 21:34:47
43 Posted 30/12/2011 at 22:05:38
they must have stepped your medication up at the Freshy because your posts are becoming more bizarre than ever.
For the record is Billy a deceiptful incomptetent liar or the worlds best magician with his ability to make things disappear down black holes.
44 Posted 31/12/2011 at 09:31:55
This kind of player should not be beyond us even with Kenwright in charge, couple of players with skill, maybe a couple of foreign kids who would be a big gamble but worth a risk would also not go amiss.
Gueye apart has Moyes ever tried to sign any young unknown creative youngsters from abroad? His record bringing players out of favour from abroad is good, Pienaar, Arteta and Fernandez all had a impact and i wouldn't mind him taking that route.
Drenthe seems to get a lift playing in the Prem, a little rough around the edges but he seems to inspire. Give some players the stage and they will perform they just need the chance.
Its easy saying it but we need to be going forward with some kind of plan which i dont see at the moment.

Wot is the point in this when the result is mostly defeat? You're dragging our once proud club down with these tactics every week. It's time to so go NOW PLEASE.
