Apparently there's a rumour that we're being linked with Diego Castro. He plays mainly as a left winger for Sporting de Gijón in the Spanish Primera.
Reputedly this rumour is circling in the Spanish media and they are expecting Everton to make a formal bid imminently.
Some bright spark has entered this on his Wikipedia site. Made me laugh anyway!!
"Diego has expressed a preference to transfer to Everton FC in the EPL. He heard that Bill Kenwright cooked up a mean Paella."
This guy sounds like the real deal and his performances statistics for Gijón have been impressive. Has anybody heard anything?

But I guess he would be just like a new signing...

Pot to piss in, remember!?
The board should be ashamed of themselves, and thats the (clear) inherent problem at Everton. I feel genuinely sorry for Moyes as he's had zero backing of late. No money = no success. Its as simple as that.
Diego Castro? A left winger? Has nobody noticed we have a bloke called Jermaine Beckford 'playing' up front?!?!

I do not believe we will sign anyone, the usual shit of we tried and failed will be spouted!
Of course, I hope I am wrong!

Seriously if any money goes onto our overdraft this month on a player purchase I will be amazed. My £40 quid on us finishing no more than 22 points behind the winners is already doomed. I just hope the rest of the season sees Moyes getting a knock on the head and daring to try what young players we ALREADY have, at least it would be a step in the right direction.

Even when we do manage to bring new players in, it's never the ones doing the rounds on the web or the tabloids. Moyes is very good at sneaking them in under the radar.
13 Posted 25/01/2011 at 15:20:44
Is he prolific in front of goal YET? No he isn't.
Is it guaranteed he will realise his potential with us? No it is not.
Is it helpful doubting him when he hasn't had a fair crack of the whip and has helped our overall play, especially when employed in 4-4-2? Absolutely not.
Let's face it, he cost us less to acquire than Jo did to loan and has already done better than a supposed Brazilian star! I am not saying he will be the answer to all our ills but I do think having a go at him is somewhat hasty.
Then again, I guess I am just another of those 'blind faith' Evertonians, eh?

Imagine of Castro got hit by a bottle thrown from the crowd during a game. Would that be a "cuban missile crisis"

Come February 1st, the reality of Everton's situation will not have changed. Don't be fooled by Kenwright's bullshit.
22 Posted 25/01/2011 at 19:06:11
"Yeh, right," said 35000 Evertonians.
Kiss my fucking arse.

After all, we've got Osman for left wing!

If you don't believe me watch the Spanish football every week like I do..
Real deal inded... I think not. If he was, we couldn't afford him... more bullshit from Billy Liar's spin machine as the transfer window deadline approaches... no doubt Stoke, Birmingham, Wigan, WBA, Fulham, West Ham, or Blackburn will enter the race at the 11th hour and steal him from under our noses.
But don't worry ? Bill is still searching tirelessly 24/7....NOT !!!!!!
