I just heard on Radio Merseyside that Fellaini may miss the derby match. Anyone have any news?

Don't panic, wait until you hear something from the OS or a reliable source. The call-in was all I've heard about it, can't find any information anywhere on the web. I'm not saying it's a false rumour but there is no verification of it at this point.

Probably right as well, OS always come out with these stories a week later or not at all.
We really need the Fella on sunday. Until that ugly greek fella decided to play the Liverpool way in the last derby Fella bossed the game completely.

Have to agree with Brian #2 though, he is the most obvious player on our books to get sent off.
6 Posted 15/10/2010 at 11:53:36
Not sure if that is good news or not, with Pienaar out it probably means that Osman will get the nod over Bily!!!

Jags is a loss but wantaway to wherever defender Johnny will be able to take his place. Fellaini in my opinion will be key on Sunday; if he bosses Gerrard, we will all be celebrating on Sunday evening. The start to our season has been awful but a win on Sunday will go some way to appeasing the majority of fans and will boost our chances for the rest of the season. A loss... well that's unthinkable. COYB ? EXCITEMENT IS HERE!
9 Posted 15/10/2010 at 12:50:18
No news either way if he's fit yet.
10 Posted 15/10/2010 at 13:15:37
In the same piece, I also read that Pienaar would be involved on Sunday too but how accurate these stories are I don't know but this kid who told all usually is good with his ITK knowledge.
Btw, the lad said it would also be Pienaar's last derby... so he's either fucking off in January or this kid is talking bollocks, watch this space?!

means we have 3 right backs playing.
hibbo rb, coleman right mid and neville at cm.
missing 3 of our best players just as torres declares himself fit!
17 Posted 15/10/2010 at 14:15:25
Really don't think Torres is one to worry about too much at the moment- he's been shockingly bad even when fit this season.

21 Posted 15/10/2010 at 14:28:33
Nevillw (like him or not) always does a shift in centre mid. With the gobby dutch man going into centre def in place of jags.
I'd still go with coleman at right back, but Hibbert will play there.
Bily should start on right with gueye on left. But think Coleman will play right and ossie left.
I actually wouldnt mind Arteta being pushed out wide and playing two upfront. May be a bit risky for Moyes though !
22 Posted 15/10/2010 at 14:37:53
Bit worried about our injury record over the last few years, as we do seem to be picking up more injuries than most. Think it's becoming too much to be coincidental nowadays.

25 Posted 15/10/2010 at 15:52:51
Two of our most important players out and also one of our brightest prospects will now miss 6 months to a year of his development because of a pointless under-19s game. I only care about Everton and I really wouldn't care less if they just did away with internationals altogether.
26 Posted 15/10/2010 at 15:56:29
Alan Hansen as impartial as ever.

28 Posted 15/10/2010 at 16:50:10
If this is true (and it is looking like it according to the Echo), why do we hand the opposition a morale boost which also enables them to better prepare for playing against the likely team we will put out? Unless, of course the cunning plan is that he is really OK, and we will shock them come half an hour before kick off with the news that the big fellah is playing. I know which one of the two alternatives is the most likely.

Howard and the back four because of Jags speaks for itself. Along with Gueye it has to be Ateta, Nev and Coleman attack right mid.
Up front is a bit of conundrum, it's an either or.
Either we go 4-4-2 with the yak and Beckford as twin strikers,
or we go 4-4-1-1 with the yak and cahill or billy or sometime in the game swapping the two.
For me i'd start with Timmy. If it's not working then at precisely 61 minutes 23 seconds bring on Billy for the howitzer quotiant.
Having said that I do like the Yak and Becks up front. Only because i've wanted to see this partnership for some time. I pray we could see an Andy Cole Dwight Yorke thing happen (you never know).
However, this game will be won not so much on a tactical level but more on a psychological, indoctrinational level, by YOU DAVID ARE YOU LISTENING, before the game starts.
Tony (26) Imagine that. If it is true what you say then Moyes is the best Everton manager since Gordan Lee and Mick Walker.
34 Posted 15/10/2010 at 19:52:22
Hard to see Yak and Beckford ever getting a chance together from the start.
35 Posted 15/10/2010 at 19:45:14
I give you Matt Etherington. Would fit in our team like glove. You know it's like that first date with a girl and you or her says "It's like we've known each other for years" Etherington and Baines would be electric down that well trodden left hand side.
Only problem is Etherington is a bit of a major gambler and has had problems with this. But i'd put money on him being a great aquasition to our squad at this time.
36 Posted 15/10/2010 at 20:02:31
I live in hope.
Mal Allison rest in peace, football is all the sadder with you gone.

I'm a hardy, negative fan but this is uncalled for, they are literally, shite.
39 Posted 15/10/2010 at 23:04:40
There can be no excuses; if we do not win this it will be unacceptable.
