We've just signed Pienaar for £2m.
Whatever you say about DM you can't argue that he doesn't find some real bargains!
For less than half the price we sold McFadden for!
That is some deal. Well done, Davey Moyes. Let's have a truck-load more in the summer please.

It’s refreshing when we don’t balls transfers up, it really is. More of the same please.

He has only signed a three year deal which will mean that in 12months time he will be able to buy out his contract for the equivelant of two years wages. At £30k per week this will be circa £3M.
If he has a fantastic seasons next year and his value rockets to £5M + then he will be able to buy himself out and pocket a £2M profit!!!
Just a thought...

No one’s saying he’s top draw (otherwise we’d have had to have fought off other clubs given his bargain £2M price tag). Getting a 7/10 from Tony Marsh is praise indeed, although I feel that’s been his average this season rather than his best (which has often been an 8 or 9 IMHO)
It still doesn’t stop our midfield needing more bolstering this summer with more flair and physical presence, but Peanuts (when he’s firing on all cylinders) will hopefully play an important role on that left-hand side. I thinjk his best is yet to come.
Nice to read some good news about our club to cheer us up after some lousy performances of late - perhaps this might boost the squad up for the Villa match!

IMO Pienaar is a step up from Barry Horne & Steve Watson. When it comes to influence, hard work, determination and flair, pound for pound, bargain for bargain we have signed Ronaldinho!

Tony Marsh, oh my God. You’re an idiot.
Sorry if that counts as ’abusing a fellow Evertonian’ but but if Tony Marsh is an Evertonian we could do with one less Evertonian. I’ve never once seen him say anything positive and seems to devote his life (or at least his time on these pages) to making people feel unhappy and negative about being Evertonians.
I love Everton, I’m chuffed we’ve signed Pienaar, and now if we can wrap up Fernandes, we’ll only be three midfielders short of a full squad. Something we’ve NEVER really had since the game developed into the squad game it is now. With Moyes apparently having spent the weekend watching Arshavin, I think we should be allowed to be positive about our club, otherwise, what’s the point?
19 Posted 22/04/2008 at 17:43:56
Who’s making out like we’ve signed Ronaldinho or Messi? I don’t see anyone. Thats just you taking your shite.
I’ve told you before stick to your obsession with David Moyes because you know fuck all about our players.
As far as I’m concerned Pienaar is a good player. Not perfect but no player is. He’s brought some good qualities to this side aswell as experience.
20 Posted 22/04/2008 at 17:53:05
However, Jason, the Arsenal and Valencia roose was just that - a plot to screw a better pay day for Pienaar and his parasite, sorry, agent.
I’d love to get Arshavin but just fear that because he is that good, a more UEFA established club will get a better opportunity that us. He would also cost £12m, but that’s not to say we shouldn’t do everything we can to reel him in.
21 Posted 22/04/2008 at 19:02:34
I know some fans occasionally look through rose tinted specs on this site but surely yours are just a little too dark?
22 Posted 22/04/2008 at 19:09:31
And Davey has been off on his travels looking for added strength to a good, but under strength squad. Not the actions of someone sitting in the office with a chequebook ready to flash, or someone thinking about going to Celtic, I would have thought. Unless he just fancied a weekend in Moscow.
23 Posted 22/04/2008 at 19:06:51
He takes the ball to feet anywere were on the pitch even with an opppostion player tight to him and rarely gives it away.
Yes he?s not had the best of games the past few but with neville and carsley in midfeild?? Not the same options as Osman, Arteta and Cahill to play his pass and move game with.
Great sighning and a bargain at £2mill
24 Posted 22/04/2008 at 20:05:03
A triumph would be winning silverware ? something we?re unfortunately still quite far off from doing it seems.
25 Posted 22/04/2008 at 20:30:24
Hahahahahahaha. You are truly on a wind up right?
You slag off the standard of football we play constantly and then when we sign permanently a class act like Pienaar for a paltry fee you are not happy!!

28 Posted 22/04/2008 at 23:05:45
Two quality midfielders (Manny if cheap enough, plus Arshavin), and Glen Johnson for right back, and we’re sorted - nearly.
Tony, keep going mate - it’s all about opinions on here. I don’t agree with you on this one, but you have every right to say what you want.
29 Posted 22/04/2008 at 23:37:00
Nice one mate, that made me giggle.

Good signing though, hope we sign Manny. COYBs.
33 Posted 22/04/2008 at 16:54:39
For Christ's sake - £2m! Two bloody million! You can't buy a bosseyed, pigeontoed, knock-kneed, Beattie of a Championship player for that. And Moyesy has secured a guy who could turn out to be one of the top midfielders in the Premier League - and who was a long way towards those lines already this season. The man desires five medals, let alone one, for his business and scouting acumen. It's an unbelievable deal when you look at Nugent £7m, Babel £11m, Darren Bent £16m. No it's not unbelievable - it's ridiculous. Someone at Borussia Dortmund should lose their job.
So let's hear it for Moyesy... right bloody now!
