We just don?t seem to have another player who can play the role that Carsley plays as good as he does.... This particular job is a hard role to do and not many can pull it off.
Looking at him, I would not be surprised if he is offered a three-year deal by one or two of the 'strugglers' in Jan. So, my view is that until we can replace him with someone of the same ilk, then we should tie him down now before his 1-year extension expires and before others start sniffing around. He is undoubtedly worth having around for the next 18 months at the very least...
Same goes for Stubbsy ? he has been outstanding once again this year and certainly does not look like he is ready for the knacker's yard just yet. Give them both extensions now I say ? another boost for morale for them and I am sure a sigh of relief from Tim Howard.

Yobo and Lescott together make me nervous, and look how few clean sheets we?ve got this season. The goal against us at the weekend after Stubbsy had gone off tells its own story - a tall striker heads in unopposed from a corner in the 80th minute. Shocking. Another season teaching them the ropes would be good, and - as you say - seems very possible.
And as for Carsley, his ommision (and Neville?s inclusion) can?t have helped the fledgling Yobo/Lescott partnership much. He?s a bloody good water carrier, takes pressure off the defense and should be kept on. Could see someone like Sunderland sniffing around him if we stalled on a decent contract ? a la Stubbs a couple of years ago.

As far i know he never scored for Eire, in something like 35 appearances and he has only managed about twelve goals in his everton career. Nonetheless he can still serve a puropse as was evident at the weekend.

Perhaps getting him into a team with heart would worth a punt...
