The 25-year-old, reportedly a long-time target of Tottenham and who is also being tracked by Chelsea, is off form for the Ligue 1 side and has been usurped by Andre-Pierra Gignac at the Stade Velodrome.

But its highly unlikely we have this to one side. Some articles have referred to us selling Jack Rodwell to Manchester City meaning we have funds — but we don't.
Everton spent the "Rodwell money" on the transfers and salaries of Kevin Mirallas, Steven Pienaar, Steven Naismith & Brian Oviedo. The modest funds that were left available were set aside to pay for the loan/salary of Vladis Ofoe, the Belgian international of Club Brugge who's move fell through after the deadline past due to being submitted late.
Robert Elstone recently went on record to say there were modest funds available for the loan market. Unless we sell a player for £8m+ then we can't afford this transfer.
Don't get me wrong: I'd love to see a player like him join our already blossoming squad... but, unless Kenwright can pull a rabbit out of his arse, I sadly can't see this one coming to fruition.
I would love to be proved wrong though ;)

A hat. You pull a rabbit out of a hat. Not your arse.
However, I say that without knowing what you get up to in your spare time. You're not Welsh, are you?

To push for top four we need to get another striker, the performances recently have shown that we don't capitalise with the abundance of chances we have had and we will struggle to get top four if Jelavic is out injured for any period of time. I think if we can get some money it needs to be a good second striker or someone who deputise for Jelavic.
I think I can expect us to sell a couple of players, maybe Heitinga and Mucha, as much as I don't want to see the former go. In the summer, we really need to consider getting a proper back up to Howard who is a lot younger.

If this has happened how would you feel? Personally I do not see a problem with it if no more than £20 million was used in this way. We all know without CL football next season Fellaini will be off in the summer and any sale would more than cover the money used now, plus we would still have the additional income from the new tv deal.

However I would much sooner get Ofoe before anyone as Gibbo's injury record could be a bit like King Louis.
565 Posted 11/12/2012 at 18:05:49
January will be loans only. Unless of course we sell.

Constructive reply mate, I know the saying is " a rabbit out of a hat" - we've all seen magicians perform the trick, but you have NEVER seen someone pull one out their arse - emphasising the unlikelyhood of us bidding for Remy.
No I'm mot welsh, I live in Skelmersdale, And in my spare time I go to Goodison Park and watch my beloved Everton with my season ticket.
Any more smart arse comments you'd like me to answer?
567 Posted 11/12/2012 at 18:24:41
Touchy get, aren't you? (that's a smart-arse question...)
Pass on my congratulations to your surgeon...your humour bypass was a resounding success...

A quality leg-pull on the oh-so-serious Mr Nuttall... made me laugh out loud! Surely sites like this are on occasion meant to provide entertainment.... keep it up!
I definitely saw a magician pull a rabbit out of his arse in a club — funnily enough, in Cardiff.
584 Posted 11/12/2012 at 19:42:31
How does an argument ensue from that?!
No joking please, Ray. You'll start a riot.
586 Posted 11/12/2012 at 19:47:27
I've never pulled a rabbit from a hat......... but I have pulled a hare from my arse!
587 Posted 11/12/2012 at 19:41:58
However, some people have taken it as a serious jibe at his expense, like the wonderfully eloquent Bob Willis.

"Keep Felli and Baines at the club and get me some players that can strengthen the squad enough to give us a hope of 4th or I'm taking a sabbatical."
Maybe this is a loan to perm deal?

I couldn't believe it when he turned his back on me and proceeded to produce a rabbit out of his arse!
I am quietly recovering in a nursing home and should be home for Christmas.
