Hope it's just talk, but www.4thegame.com are linking us with a summer swoop (!) for Wigan's out of favour midfielder, Jason Koumas. I know some of you on here rate him, but he's had chances galore in the Premier League and never cut it. He's also 28, so not one for the future. We'll be after Earnshaw next...
Didn't Davey learn his lesson after Davies? Don't go for someone you were after 5 years earlier when maybe they were half decent.
Maybe with the finances that's the level we can expect.

He’s better than Simon Davies in my opinion. Not as hardworking but he’s technically better and has a better cross. On his day he’s a classy player but lacks consistency.
Moyes obviously rates him as we tried to sign him last year aswell as at Tranmere.
Like I say don’t spend money on him unless its a very cheap price or its a loan. Useful sqaud player and nothing else.

Versatile aswell. Gave Hibbert a run around on the left wing at the JJB but is now playing centre midfield for them. I think he’s someone we should definatly take a look at.
Much rather him than Jason Komas.

Ok, 28 is hardly that old but I bet he would still command a fee in the region of £4.5 million. I think Moyes is probably looking for quantity and not just quality this summer as too often he is getting team selection headaches at the end of each season with not signing enough players during the summers. Koumas I would think would replace the likes of Gravesen in the squad in numbers terms and if we can get two or three top class additions then I will settle for two or three average to decent players coming in also.

Just media speculation me thinks.

Has no one never learnt that its garbage until the player has signed, and if ye want to believe a paper, look at the Liverpool Echo... no mention in that so far !
One word for a couple of ye:? gullible!

In the summer we will probably have 2 in and 2 out. (Out shandy and Grave Digger).
We’ll probs also get one more in on loan.
Wont be buying Koumas, Smith, Parker, Barton, or anyone else we’ve been linked with in previous seasons. Moyes will buy players who are quality and improve the 1st team. he has already stated he’s happy with the size of the squad, so will use his resources on 2 class midfielders in my opinion... Koumas isn’t one of them.

Koumas, don?t make me laugh, we are linked with him every year, the same way we were linked with that goalscoring maestro Nugent.
Bullshit journalism, bored with no stories, let's make some up.

Don’t believe that’s true, Mr Williams. As far as I know, he has not been named as a substitute in any senior games for Everton.

Those that believe we have the basis of a squad that can challenge the top four should put down the meths and get real.
If I was to decide who to keep I would say Lescott, Yobo, Yakubu, Jagielka, Pienaar, Arteta, Johnson, Vaughan and Fernandes; it would be cheerio to the rest.
