Any news of Pienaar?

Comments (4)

One of the items featured on ToffeeWeb?s News in Brief on Tuesday under the heading PIENAAR: 48 HOURS TO DEAL, quoted an article from the Daily Mail stating ?Steve Pienaar's permanent move to Everton should finally be ironed out in the next 48 hours once Borussia Dortmund confirm receipt of a £2million offer for the South Africa midfielder?.

That article was posted at 0.56am ? 14th April. Obviously the journalist in question must be:

1. A ?rookie?, otherwise he/she would have known that Everton never take the easy route where transfers are concerned and there are still 13 days to the deadline, plenty of time to mess up.

2. Maybe he/she is right, Steven may have already signed and I am probably a cynic. (I wonder why?)

It’s getting a bit annoying with all of these deadlines then nothing!

Have we still not accepted that our club is a joke? We’re being blatantly lied to about Kirkby, by both Kenwright and Wyness, our ability to close a transfer deal is laughable and all the while the club puts out these ridiculous statements.

Did anyone really believe that Pienaar would be signed by Thursday? Honestly? Nope, me neither.

The fans are simply not important, and the men in charge of the club are simply not competent.

Not defending them but to me "the end of the week" either means Friday or Sunday.....never been Thursday in my books.

I don’t think this deadline came from the club. I think it was one of those "according to sources close to.." comments!
