Wax Face is back in for Neville. Love him or hate him, he is a model professional and a big influence both on and off the pitch. He also seems to be a nice guy.
Strange that Philip Green is supposed to be at Goodison on Saturday. Bet it's to twist BK's arm as it seems Spurs really want him.
Both Neville and Moyes gone by Monday Morning.... Bets anyone??

Levy had a meeting in London
Thursday night with Billy Boy.
Neville has intimated that he wants out to play
Lets wait and see, it will be a massive loss for the
club if he is allowed to leave

Moyes would never agree to sell his captain, to sell him from underneath him when the strength in the squad is low and has not been replensished would be a smack in the face to Moyes. How many smacks can he take, I wonder...

Has someone pulled the plug and called in a loan or two? By Monday evening we will know.

I just feel he is being painted into a corner and watching as playing decisions are made on the basis of a dwindling squad which is not of his doing.
If the club is in such dire straights that it has to sell a number of players to survive then so be it. But be honest and tell us.
We will rally around Moyes and the team but the gulf between the board and fans of this great club will widen even further.

Moyes has a history of acquiring players that are going through a bad patch (Pienaar, Arteta, Marcus Bent, Brian McBride, Kevin Kilbane), and getting the best out of them. Robbie Keane could be the next one to join that list (Moyes has been after him for years, so it wouldn't surprise me). However, bearing in mind the impact that Fellaini had, playing as a target man, on Saturday, there's a chance he might go for Pavlyuchenko instead.
Having said that, the rumours on here might be more than just paranoid frustration, and we might be forced to sell players, and not bring anyone in. It's difficult to understand what's going on at the moment. If we really were close to Administration, the bank wouldn't lend us the money to give Vic and Seamus improved contracts. Surely, the bank would have also forced us to sell a player worth decent money (Baines/Jags/Rodwell/Fellaini).
On the other hand, Moyes has made it clear that he thinks we desperately need a striker. Surely, we MUST be close to Administration, if he's getting rid of strikers without getting a replacement.
I guess the situation will become a bit clearer once the transfer window closes.

But he only cost 3million"
We're in such a sorry state it's not funny even. Sigh.
12 Posted 28/01/2011 at 08:30:43
Scratching my head, I wonder where do Spurs find the money to do that.
13 Posted 28/01/2011 at 08:54:58
"I wonder where do Spurs find the money to do that".......
Spurs will recoup about £18M from CL. Additionally, they will take in about £20M from sponsership (whereas we take in about £4M) ? fuck me they have a different sponser for each competition i.e. CL, EPL, FA Cup).
Now let's not get started on the money they take in from every home game (corporate boxes being one of their primary returns).
Their business model is way beyond anything that BK, or his cronies, could dream up.

15 Posted 28/01/2011 at 08:56:20
Robbie Keane is on £65k per week.
Tottenham have spent a lot of money in the past (more than Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal!!!!), but I think it's more interesting to look at how much they've spent since they qualified for the Champions' League. I thought Redknapp would've been rewarded with a huge transfer kitty to strengthen the squad. Even Van der Vaart didn't have a huge transfer fee. Considering, they're through to the latter stages of the competition, I'd have expected bids for the likes of Torres, not bargains like Pienaar.
I imagine they can borrow more money than us because they have more corporate facilities (and, because they're in London, more corporate clients).

If he was to go though I'd be more concerned about what it means regards the state of our clubs, a threadbare squad that has to loan people out because we can't afford the wages, getting increasingly worried.
21 Posted 28/01/2011 at 14:07:21
If the club is indeed in dire financial straights, telling people would not be a good move. If they went ahead and said, "OK Everton are as skint as everyone thinks/knows they are" then you get clubs coming in with uber-low bids for players. If you don't have a pot to piss in, don't go round telling everyone!
It's common knowledge anyway, as is borne out by the fact we rarely buy anyone of any note, but let's all keep shtum just in case, yeah?!

Why would you think Neville would need to re-locate? He will probably get Spurs to purchase him a flat or house or mansion for his stay in London, leaving his family to stay at home. FFS quite a few of the away games are in the North West so Neville could save Spurs some cash with team sleep overs.
I personally thought Neville was piss poor against WHU so I would say that his mind is elsewhere - probably thinking about picking up an extra 10-20K per week for an additional two years AND sitting on the bench for most games. Sounds a good deal to me.
24 Posted 28/01/2011 at 15:12:04
Oh well, roll on the summer!
25 Posted 28/01/2011 at 16:05:09

Kenwright cowers in the back as always

Get an adult, carer or sober friend to help you before you post a reply eh !
Oh ...and gramatically it should be you're (short for you are not your ) as in the sentence " you're a goon fullstop".
Jeeze, it's like running an adult education class at times but glad to be of help ... toodle pip !

Hibbert aside, imagine a good and competant right back who can pass a ball accurately and then put him behind Coleman. For me it's the right back thats been the problem. If Moyes could use what brain he has and work the training ground with Baines and Gueye, then, to complement those two, get a right back with skill. We wouldn't have a problem now.
Numnuts 'arry wants Nev. Then let him have him. With the money go and find an up and comming right back who will be able to pass a ball unlike Neville,.
Tell you the best captain, Distan. His age, his experience, and lets face it, this season he's been a collossus and deserves the honour. I reckon with the respect that this guy has amongst the players for his sheer endeavour at least, he deserves it. ,

The win against Spurs hasn't changed anything,
yes I was delighted we won as I will be if we
That doesn't change the facts that Billy Liar
must be forced out.
I repeat He and He alone is responsible for
the financial mess this club is in.
Everything has been sold or mortgaged, its now akin
to burning the ship to keep the boilers going.
Our motto now should be GHU- god help us.
