ANOTHER new signing?

Comments (8)

Just saw this link, which apparently shows a medical for some Azerbaijani international who's 18. He's listed as an Everton player on Wikipedia, though that should always be taken with a heavy pinch of salt.

Here's the link anyways...

Whether it's true or not, at least we seem to be getting the ball rolling nice and early!

Hmmm... unauthorized pics at Finch Farm, sneaked out by "a source"... Could see a witchhunt for this, followed by rolling heads!

I smell a rat. Nah, that's last season's training kit and Dan Gosling will still be in a cast! He was probably on trial last season and didn't make it!

Tom, you don't wear a cast for cruciate ligament damage and you can start physio 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. And apparently that pic was taken the week of 24 June this year from what I've seen on over forums.

We were interested in him in January I think but couldn't get a work permit for him and he was close to signing for Rubin Kazan but that cant of happened either cos he's still at his club in Azerbijan.

Signing young up and coming players is all good but how many of 'em are going to make the grade for us and start making an impact on the team in the coming years?

As well as signing these prospects, I'd like us to sign a quality known player; I'm not saying a world class type name but someone like Donovan or Sessegnon to play RW for us, 'cos to me that's where we need to strengthen to balance the side out and give us that threat apart from just down our left. But it all depends on what money we have doesn't it which I doubt is a lot and that's why were forking out little bits here and there for these youngsters to fill out the squad and hope they come good in a year or two's time.

The youTube link has someone saying we were signing him 3 months ago.

Just googled this fella : He's the fifth cousin twice removed of famous film maker & cultural ambassador Borat.
Apparently he was great in this years
'Back of Beyond, Goat Herders challenge Cup', scoring 4 times in 3 games & winning the much coveted 'Golden sheeps bladder' .
My Goodison source reckon's Kenwright has really pushed the boat out on this one as by all accounts we've paid 4 yurts & a camel for this guy.
My own view is that it's got to be a wind up, as come on...... There's no way Bill could afford the 'Big League' price of 4 Yurts & a Camel !

Marc, the fee was much higher than that... it turned out that Blue Bill offered 3 kilos of finest quality pubis.

Maybe if our physios spent more time doing a detailed clinical study of our prospective signings, rather than just playing 'this little piggy went to market' with them, then perhaps we wouldn't have so many injury problems.......
