Several fringe and youth players have been released (including the wonderful Anthony Gardner ? a loan signing that was, at best, baffling ? seeing as he was injured when we signed him!).
It's a shame to see Paddy Boyle depart ? I had high hopes for him, but I guess after hanging on to Valente we didn't need another left back.
But most importantly ? where is Andy van der Waste-of-space??? Surely his should have been the FIRST name on this list! Does he have some extraordinary contract that we cannot withdraw?

As he has to be with us for another season, is there any possibility at all that AvdM might one day walk out of the shower and carry on like nothing had ever happened? OK, Dallas was fiction, but real life - if that?s what football is - can be stranger. We would then at least have one more decent player at no extra expense.

Its quite obvious he was brought in as COVER FFS. It turned out that we didnt need him in the end as none of Jags, Yobo or Lescott got injured but I bet if we had of had the injury problems in defence that we had in midfield and had NO COVER ? you would all be crying about how "Moyes should have planned for this blah blahblah".
Think about it FFS.

I dunno what to make of this transfer. One the one hand he’s a decent player, scores a few goals and is free.
On the other hand he’s 29, playes right midfield, isn’t very tall.
Is this a great piece of business to compliment the 2 world class midfielders we hope Moyes is going to bring in, a replacement for Arteta, or just the 1st signs that we’re shopping at the bargin bin again this summer?
I’m hoping its Moyes snapping up a good squad player for free, but I hope we are still able to bring some real class in as well

Their website doesn’t include assists unfortunately, but his goals to appearances stats aren’t too bad for a midfielder.
I still think he’s only a decent squad player though... but it gives Moyes more options in midfield and thats no bad thing!
