Chelsea have already had a derisory bid for Moses rejected out of hand but Roman Abramovich could return with an improved offer for the striker, and there are sure to be other suitors if it emerges that he is available.
If he does move on, the Latics could look up the road to Goodison Park where Anichebe is itching for more first-team opportunities but has struggled to hold down a first-team place because of injury and competition for places from Nikica Jelavic and Tim Cahill.

To be fair to the lad he had one of the best goal to min ratios in the league last season! Also if he goes then it is fair to say that Jelavic would be the only senior striker at the club...

A couple of rumors like this were floated last season, one was doing the rounds about Charlie Nzogbia, despite our financial situation, many were screaming for Moyes to sign him.
I got so fed up with the abuse Anichebe was taking I bet a guy a tenner that Vic would score more than Nzogbia (who eventually went to Villa for 12 million quid if Memory serves me right)
So Gav Ram : I believe you to be a man of Honour, send your £10 to www.getkidsgoing.com.
the consolation is you will agree its a cracking charity.
While we are at it, I also remember Ossie taking dogs abuse that day too.
So Dick Fearon. You too lost a tenner mate. Ossie did score more than your boy Tim.
Same charity please

Maybe he could be someone to play alongside Jelavic...who knows ??
Ameobi played alongside Shearer at Newcastle and he is very similar to Vic.
By the way, I see that DM is still waiting for new comers which is the same as ever.
He is quoted as saying that he wants new players to arrive early for this season to allow them to 'bed in'.
Other clubs are already active and we just wait for the remnants sales.
Never mind the quality, feel the width !!!!!!!

I think Vic would do a pretty good job at Wigan, that's my tuppence worth!

Why not a part exchange deal with a bit of cash to Wigan also (I can't see Victor A being worth more than Victor M). They both play a very similar position: right/wing come striker. Victor M (although I know very little about his statistics) would probably get more game time than Victor A based on not spending so long in the treatment room.

Where's Dick fearon?

And then he does and does something top class and extraordinary and I start thinking that this kid has got something. The stats from last season suggest it's not just me hoping he comes good - he scored 6 goals from 16 appearances, most as sub, and whilst these aren't great stats, they're not dire and if last season heralds a upward trend and the goals keep coming- well who knows
If a manager can tap this potential or 'Big Vic' finds a way to turn the 1% of his game that's excellent to even 50% - he'll make a name for himself.
I seriously doubt that this will happen at this stage of his career and we are probably well advised to get shut. However, there is this nagging doubt in my head he might turn out to be a decent forward, at the right club, with the right manager and the right attitude.
333 Posted 21/06/2012 at 12:28:55
I think this is about contracts, Moses is in the last year and so has plumetted in value, we bid more than Chelsea ie £5m and we buy the lad.
From that point Wigan have £5m in their pocket and need to find a premier league striker to play for £20k a week - look no further than big Vic but oh what a shame, he has a 3 year contract and so the capital costs are higher in order to break that.. From a business sense this one has legs and Vic might move on for playing time even if he didn't get a wage hike!!
334 Posted 21/06/2012 at 12:50:34
Apparently we don't have to sell the likes of Felli and Baines to appease the banks but we do have to sell if we want to build up the cash to be able to squad build and, for me, we can do without Anichebe, so sell him for a decent fee.
Hopefully we'll get close to what we want for Yobo and then sell someone else, maybe either Cahill or Rodwell and then we should have a fair amount of dosh to be able to sign Pienaar and a right winger atleast, and maybe a freebie or two to fill out the squad?!
335 Posted 21/06/2012 at 13:31:09
Sadly money that we don't have and, even if we did, what chance of us outbidding Chelsea?!!
337 Posted 21/06/2012 at 13:35:45
338 Posted 21/06/2012 at 13:54:35
£6m is fine - straight swap!
339 Posted 21/06/2012 at 14:03:44
343 Posted 21/06/2012 at 14:21:18
Silly me. There was I thinking he couldnt hold down a 1st team place coz hes a big fat lump of shit!!
362 Posted 21/06/2012 at 16:04:33
363 Posted 21/06/2012 at 16:24:16
Think he could do well at Wigan and would almost definitely score against us!
364 Posted 21/06/2012 at 16:26:50
A bustling centre forward?
You have fell into the trap of thinking because he is built like a heavy weight boxer then he must be able to out muscle the opposition,when in fact its the opposite.He never uses his bulk to bully defenders and is brushed of the ball with ease.
Fully agree with you about Moyes loving to play players out of position but Anichebe would look shite playing anywhere.
