So I see that we will win the race for Miguel Veloso's signature. Now I'll be honest, I'd never heard of him so a little research via the internet (Wikipedia, etc) reveals that his CV is good but if the other teams linked with him come in for him, will we again be disappointed?
Oh, by the way, a bid of 25 million euros (£19.8m) will secure his signature. Hmm... now where will we find THAT sort of cash?

A midfield of Veloso, Arteta, Peanut and Fernandes supplying Cahill and the Yak is a mouthwatering prospect...

"Everton are today closing in on the signing of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Miguel Veloso after months of speculation over the player’s future. Arsenal and Manchester United are also said to be interested but it it the Toffees who are now favourites to land the Portuguese international." (A Bola)
That’s a little more than being mentioned "in passing".

I’d say he’s more like a young Vieira than Keano tbh Alan.

But there is another kid called Yannik Djaló, same kind of player like Nanni. Watch out. I will point also to Moyes the central defender of my Portuguese Club, Vitória Guimarães. Geromel, brasilian, 21 years old. Been watching football for more then 30 years old and never watch a central defender with so much quality like him. Better, much better then Pepe or Ricardo Carvalho.

I don't care who it is or what position he plays. The reason Man City are getting Ronaldinho is because he will lift thier profile enormously and will probably pay for the majority of his wages in merchandising etc.
Big name players lift the club?s profile and this means more money coming into the club, something we are desperate for. As an afterthought, they usually improve things on the pitch as well.

I do not think that we will get this chap.
Lets be more realistic....stops me from getting too excited.

I’d rather have Fernandes anyway. Veloso is excellent but I prefer Fernandes. Yes Veloso is ahead of him in the Portugal squad but the only difference is he has had stability in his career whereas Fernandes hasn’t. I can see Fernandes being ahead of him in a few years.
I’d take Moutinho over both though. He’s a better player than both, a better leader and has a better attitude.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha - don’t be silly.
Until I see players in a blue shirt on Goodison Park I will simply not listen to all this bullshit.
Don’t buy newspapers - they are full of shite.
