Boy, Moyes looks fed up

Comments (250)

I just watched Moyes on Sky. Asked about transfers his icy glare said it all. I hope that journo who asked him was paid well!

Moyes looked like he'd lost a tenner and then got home to find his house had burnt down and his wife had run off with the milkman.

I feel genuinely sorry for him; carrying the weight of our expectations whilst being hogtied by Kenwright. The latter should have been answering the journo, not Moyes. Instead, Davie looks across the Park at a bloke who's only been in the job five minutes (and bottled it first time round under much more benign conditions than Moyes has had to contend with) splashing stupid amounts of money on a Geordie piss head.

I think it's a big ask to see Moyes stayiing beyond the Summer. He and we already know, more of the family silver (Rodwell minimum) will have to be sold to allow Bill to stay snug in his seat in the Main Stand.

I used to think Bill was at worst an eccentric, but I have now realised he is cynical beyond belief and has allowed one of the best managers of his generation to become disillusioned with just about everything to do with life at Everton; so long as he can keep popping up every now and then to do his Cheshire cat impressions for the cameras...

There is the link. He will be gone at the end of the season and who can blame him. He must be the most bored manager in the league tonight.

'Deep depression from the man on the window ledge'

There have been transfer windows before, inevitably theres a sense that we're missing something (or someone!), but we've not always needed players and its easy to get carried away with the nonesense and hype, esp on final day. This time its different. Its irritating because we need new players more than the teams actually doing business. This time we really are missing out.

It's hard to take. Just when I thought we had finally caught up with Liverpool we are left gazing out of the transfer window empty handed and they are swooping for Suarez,Carroll and whoever else in the next couple of hours. Our squad is so strong must be Moyes stance and we don't need anyone except a couple of youngsters for the future who probably won't see the light of day in the first team for a few years knowing Moyes. We are struggling to win games and Cahill is injured again so what can we expect for the rest of the season,more of the same old crap and excuses. Good riddance Moyes and Kenright (in advance)

I think Moyes has been given subtle hints that he's not happy about the lack of money for some time, even the 'incredible draw' comment that winds Michael Kenrick up, is actually a complaint about lack of a decent transfer budget. Watched the interview and he looks seriously pissed off-another £75k saving in the very near future perhaps

Didn't think i could feel any worse to be honest but the longer the day goes on the more gut wrenching it gets.
How on gods green earth has it come to this. Liverpool, bankrupt less than a couple of months ago now spending massive amounts of money. Blackpool for fucks sake spending cash and Sunderland buying quality players.

I agree Mike. We are supposed to be trying to climb out of the worst recession in living memory, and yet +£100m has been "pledged" just today, never mind all the loan salaries. I'm no KB apologist ( far from it) but I wonder how some of his peers at other clubs can sleep at night - they must be sailing close to the wind financially.

Gutted for him. Although Davey gets on my tits at times, I have total sympathy for him. Yes, he earns great money to do a job that we'd all love, but the lad cares passionately and you know he would give just as much of a shit, even if it was a Sunday under 11s team. You can see the pain and stress in his eyes. BK has got a lot to answer for - I can't believe so many of us have been taken for a ride for so long. The end is nigh...

Steve,

I posted this earlier on a different thread:

"I was watching todays pre match interview with Moyes on Sky earlier and apart from looking completely pissed off, the interviewer asked him, amongst other things "will anybody else be leaving before the deadline?" Moyes gave him the 1000 yard stare and retorted "No, not as far as I am aware!"

"Not as far as I am aware", does this suggest that he didn't want to lose the players he has recently?

I wonder !!"

It has just been on Sky that Awry thinks it is still possible Pip will be a Spurs player by the end of tonight !!

If this is the case and it transpires, it would not surprise me if Moyes throws his hand in, and I can't blame him one bit !!

Judging by tonight, every club (bar City, United & Chelsea) are prone to sell the family silver if the price is right.All these deals are due to the clubs concerned receiving ridiculous amounts of money for their players.
£35,000,000 for Carroll. what a joke! thet'll be lucky to get 10 million for him in a couple of years. Crouch would have been better. We are seeing everything thats wrong with football tonight.

We have saved/ made about 6 milion this window- being half fees and half wgaes saved- roughly. Could be more.

The fact that none of this has been released is a real sign of the financial trouble we are in.

It appears this goes deepers than 'dithering Moyes' or Bill being tight. Its a sign of real financial trouble that the club is in- which is not only a scary prospect for this season but for the next one and the one after that.

I was saying at the Stoke game that I thought this was the end for Moyes. Something has not been right for a while. The whole team looks really stale (Pienaar implied as much in an interview this week).

I honestly cannot see Moyes staying beyond August. BK cannot provide 50m to excite Moyes so the only option is to tread water or leave surely?

The squad has real quality but this season has been an absolute disaster and Moyes must surely be thinking that he has given it his best shot?

If he walked now no one would blame him. We can only hope that they are stocking up on cash with saved wages for a big Summer but judging by Moyes' body language I suspect that the end is nigh.

Just watched the video. Moyes looks well and truly pissed off. I don't understand what's going on. We obviously have no money, but why? We've lowered the wage bill and there's been some good players available on loan which would have given the blues a boost. e.g. santa cruz, ireland etc.

Ian Barker, saving 6 million sounds like we're doing well in our efforts to address the financial trouble we're in!

We are skint and have been for decades. Not only that but the clubs around us have got richer and the fans have been getting poorer. Its quite remarkable we even have what we have and we are where we are. Bill Kenwright needs to issue a statement of some kind quite urgently before we spiral into decay.

And the fact we are all taking the piss out the redshite a few months ago is just embarrassing. Fair do's we can take the piss if Carrol ends up being shite, but the bigger picture is that we're actually further away from Liverpool in all respects than we ever have been. Its the depressing truth.

Harry Redknapp was on 5live half an hour or so ago saying there's still an offer for Neville on the table. That will be a good measure of whether we're desperately skint or not if he's gone later on.

I agree, Rodwell would be the player I would sell to be honest in the summer, rather him than Fellaini. It is widely specualted/ known that United are keeping serious tabs on him and no doubts Chelsea and City too.

If he was gonna leave, I would rather him leave when we need the money most so that we can 'start again' on rebuilding the squad, starting with our front line hopefully and before Moyes leaves and we end up with Curbishley or somebody of that ilk.

We are in a lucky position in terms of players already on board and our first team and bench is good enough to push on, however, it seems that confidence is low in our management.

We have a strong defensive unit and are flush in midfield too, albeit weak on the left hand side.

Up front, we really needed to strengthen, however as this as been the case since last summer, there are clearly issues far more serious than we expected.

The amount of loans gone through and Moyes states thats what we are after, 3 or 4 was his words even before we let 3 go, Neville will be off too and I dont blame him, Rodwell should run like fuck as well, we are a laughing stock.

I wish I could get a refund on the games remaining on my season ticket but at least the season is finished soon.

Bradley, Ireland, Martins, the latest to move, don't fucking dare tell me they would not improve our 1st 11 never mind squad.

Kenwright is full of shit and so is Moyes. Everton can go Fuck them selves and I refuse to spend another penny on them because it vanishes into thin air like the money generated from the latest departures.

Neville I imagine will go if not another before 11.00 tonight. A stated on another tried we have to raise funds just to the keep the bloody gig ticking over until the summer.
There is so much wrong at the club its not funny. We have no chance of competing with the big boys unless we get massive investment.
For eg: Arsenal make between 900K -1 Mill on Hospitality for each home game. Everton between 60K -70K. How are we supposed to compete with that never mind the fact they are packing it out with 60'000 people each week.
If nothing changes we need to get used to transfer windows like this. There will be no more 11th hour suprises where we all say Maurane Who? at 12.00pm on deadline day & get excited because we actaully had 15 Mill to spend.
I fear developing & signing young talent & then just selling them on to keep us alive. As much as it kills me to say it the chance we had with this set of players is alraedy gone.

Ryan, I already there mate.

In fact, does anyone want to buy a season ticket in the park end for the remaining games?

Its 3 seats in from the wall closest to the away fans, half way up the stand.

If anyone wants a bargain, make me a sensible offer.... i am actually being serious. Fuming does not even come close.

If Neville goes tonight we are going down, its not so much that he is a talented player, hell on paper he shouldn't even make the bench but its what he brings to the side. He can be shite, but the players around him play so much better when he is on the pitch. He's a great guy and a brilliant captain. I can see him going onto be a good coach or manager.
If he goes tonight, I wouldn't hold a grudge if Moyes walked in the morning.
Since the summer we have been lied to about signings, now lied to about LOAN signings ffs! And still not even a club statement.

Just on OS

Everton youngsters Joao Silva and Kieran Agard have gone out on loan on the day the Club can confirm the signing of Greek youngster Apostolos Vellios. Silva, 20, has joined Portuguese first division side Uniao Desportiva de Leiria until the end of the season, whilst 21-year-old Agard has moved north of the border to Kilmarnock for the rest of this campaign after returning from a shortlived loan switch to Peterborough.

Striker Vellios moves in the opposite direction, signing from Greek side Iraklis Thessaloniki for a nominal fee. Vellios is a Greek Under-19 international who has signed a deal until 2014 and will join Alan Stubbs's Reserve squad. Vellios, 19, is a tall, slim frontman who has worked his way through the ranks at Iraklis and who boasts seven goals from 14 appearances for the Greek Under-19s.

He looks a broken man. I don't blame him.

He's over the course of the last 12 months attempted to secure the whole squad on long term contractors and for a large part has suceeded.

You have to ask yourself - what promises has he made to them? The players although paid ridiculous amounts of money must also be pissed off.

How do you progress as a team knowing there'll be no new additions because we're fucking broke.

We've had Pienaar spouting his gob about moving to a team to win things and even Distin has mucked in stating we need new additions for the squad as much as anything else. This is a man in his 30's who has no real option but to stay... what's our 20's contingent thinking? Let's fuck off quick?

In a world where "Spud" Carroll costs thirty five million quid, and Darren Bent twenty three million, it's quite obvious that a chairman with the net worth of Kenwright could not really hope to compete.

Which makes you wonder why the fuck he doesn't get out of the way and let someone - anyfuckenone!- take us forward. Animal, vegetable, mineral, English, Thai, a speculator, someone for the long haul - who cares. Watching Everton feels like watching someone you love waste away slowly vefore your eyes.

We waited until long into the hours (and after the deadline passed) before finding out Robinho (£32.5m), Berbatov (£30.75m) and, erm, Xisco (undisclosed) signed on a day that also saw Fellaini (£15m), Pavlyuchenko (£14m) and Corluka (£8.5m) moving. Exactly. There's still time for all manner of nonsense people!

Kenwright's reviled and rightfully so. We needed someone. Anyone! We brought in no one.

We clearly are broke as a joke. In a league where it takes thirty five million to buy an unproven Geordie lump like Carroll, I'd suggest we're in a little bit of trouble.

Moyes WILL go sooner or later, and I'm not sure a new gaffer could coax the same results out of our squad. We certainly don't have the money to provide a new man with the players he would want. I really feel that Moyes will go in the summer. He really does have the "carried this sack of shite so far" look, as a few others here have also alluded to.

It really could get a lot worse, fast.

You know what I almost stopped caring when we conceded against Chelsea. This season has been a drag, and if we cannot get any striker on loan I wonder if this has become terminal. A giant club in decline, as it looked we were ten years ago.

We are not the global brand Liverpool are. Is there anyone out there who cares tuppence for a club from a once but no longer wealthy city that has the two biggest brands in English football in our catchment area. I am utterly depressed about it all.

Moyes looked like he could no longer care less in that video, and the journo knew it and wanted to get away. We need to win four games, stay up, and find out what the Hell is going on. For Moyes, I think it could be the end. Back to ten years ago or worse: the new Birmingham.

Cannot confirm that this is true but I heard from someone who has links to Adam Hammill that Hamill was keen to come to Everton ? and Everton were keen on completing the signing ? but ultimately balked at the release clause fee.

So ultimately we were unable to find £500k (which was a steal anyway) to sign a player who is considered to be worth considerably more than that ? and that wanted to come here. Considering that we have received money for Yak's loan, the Pienaar transfer fee, and (I think) a loan fee for James Vaughan ? the state of our finances must be inordinately worrying.

The fee we have paid for the Greek lad must be all that was available; I fear it's that simple.

I wouldn't blame Moyes if he walked away. Whatever some may think of him, while he could do some little things better, on the whole could anyone else have done better than three top-6 finishes and a top 4 finish?

His stock is high in football and he could get a job pretty quickly at a club with some actual prospects.

We're just skint, obviously, when you watch the hundreds of loan deals flying about.

Steve Sweeney 244#.... Sorry Steve I just can't get excited about this signing but I can see why Moyes would like her. After all... she's not a specialist 'Tea lady' as such but more of a utility type of cha lady, who can fill in as a cleaner. So I can see her being played in this position or even emptying bins.

She is very defensively minded, always 'tracking back' with her trolley to make sure she's not missed anyone. When she does go forward she won't go wide & try to get behind uneven floortiles or carpeting ...and consequently often loses posession of her out-of-date Kwik Save broken biscuits that Bill bought wholesale when they closed down.

You see there is just no craft to her play and rather than show ability & flair with a strainer & leaves, she often just HOOFS the tea bag into the air, hoping it'll land in a mug.

Yes ... all round a typical Moyes January signing really but with her dodgey hip joint & fragile ankle, nobody will see her anyway. I predict we'll send her out on loan to Formby, allowing Elstone to 'Contract out' our tea making services in another ground breaking & lucrative (for them at least) business deal for EFC.

I can hear Ian Ross now.... another historic first for Everton!
