Manny Fernandes

Comments (11)

Can anyone tell me if they have heard any more news on Manny Fernandes, have we made any move to secure his services on loan or a permanent basis ?

Can anyone shed any light why Fernandes is still shown as an Everton player on the OS. All the players who have been released or on loan have been removed apart from him?

Can anyone tell me why flammable and inflammable mean the same thing and why I had to learn it the hard way?

Nothing has come out yet. Its still very early though so I wouldn’t worry. He’s captain of the olympic Portuguese team so I think he’s with them at the moment.

We’ll know in time whether he’s coming or not. Dominic King will probably confirm it in the Echo. Moyes obviously rates him but it is more down to Fernandes, his owners and Valencia. We’ll have to wait and see.

I’m guessing Fernandes is still on our Offical site because his contract hasn’t expired yet and there is a possibility he could come back. It was the same last year. They where still reporting about him on international duty with the under 21s until a certain period.

I agree that the niceties of the contractual situation might explain his continuing existence on the OS. But I suspect that there is a will that he hasn’t been sent home - that there is an official hope that he stays.

Andy - I had to learn that to cleave can mean to divide and also to cling. Look up cleavage in any respectable publication.

Just returned from a golf trip to portugal and after a round i got chatting to a potugese caddy master (marshall) and he seemed to think from reports in local and national papers over there that Manny was staying at EFC for 1 more season on loan , his understanding is that if Manny was to return to Spain he would be banged up in prison for a racially motivated attack on a policeman !! . Don’t know if this is fact , but he was deffo in trouble around xmas time for a nightclub fracas whilst still at Valencia , so you never know !!

Manny signed a 6 month loan deal on January 15th (which expires soon).

That may be why he is still on OS as a player. Hope DM gets him on loan for another year tho - he was just starting to show some quality after his injury.

Agree with you Roy, the lads corners and free kicks were great, with Arteta injured and delivering free kicks into walls and corners that never beat the first man it makes sense to have another player who can.

Interesting to note that on Thursday the Permier League people have changed / strengthened the rules so that no team can have a third party owned player. Did Valencia buy him out right last summer?

Gavin - we may disagree about all things Kirkby, but I am happy to fully agree with you about Manny. Just sign him!

There’s still a possibility we could get him on Loan according to the Echo. We also face stiff competition for Huddlestone and Sidwell.
