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.

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.

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 feel like jibbing the whole fucking thing in.

I mentioned on another thread that obviously they have paid way over the odds for Carroll, I reckon £20m would have been a good investment in a young lad with huge potential to be one of the best, would loved to have seen someone like him at Everton.
15 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:02:21
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 !!
16 Posted 31/01/2011 at 20:58:29
Where is our Chairman now?
We deserve answers.
Step up to the plate and be a man for once in your life, Kenright
17 Posted 31/01/2011 at 20:49:16
£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.

My friend in Uni went to school with him in Birkdale High and no, I won't name her on here, that would be silly now wouldn't it?
What's the problem? It is something he has said and anyway, why would this be so unbelievable? The lad is English and let's face it, if he can't get in our struggling side and has as much faith in the clubs future as we do, why would he stay?
NO, I did not 'make it up' and how would I benefit from such a thing?
25 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:09:54
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 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.
33 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:11:12
34 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:14:20
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.
35 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:19:51
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.
36 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:22:57
37 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:20:33
Felli, Rodwell and Baines must also have their admirers- i guess its a small positive for the rest of the season

40 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:26:40
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.
41 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:24:43
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.
Completely ashamed of Everton this evening.

Also if Bily doesn't go to Leicester
( one of the BIG 39, we can no longer compete with ) & Capt Pip doesn't go to Spur's then they'll be like two new signings eh !
49 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:32:10
50 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:32:35
News on Sky just suggested Everton attempted to sign SWP on loan alongside others, but were turned down.

52 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:35:16
53 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:32:19
If we do sell Nevile then i think Administration is closer than we think
Moyes went down on record saying that no-one would be leaving "that he was aware of"
That would be the biggest sign ever that we are closer to the dreaded A than we thought
54 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:34:29
surely if Neville or Heitinger were going to be sold they would need more than an hours notice???
same for players coming in (as if..)

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.

66 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:39:51
Tomorrow morning BK will be saying the usual "incredible night, just incredible" or "Both David and I sat by the fax and it just wouldnt work" or maybe "i was sat with the Wireless on waiting for the news but Marina told me to go to bed"
More chance of one of those statements in the Echo than that of a player coming in
67 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:43:23
68 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:43:35
As for Redknapp, he is a complete and utter disgrace to football. If I was Moyes I'd twat him.
Seriously though, I would think about making a complaint about him to the Premier League. The way he conducts his transfer business through the media should not be allowed.
69 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:42:36
If we get our act together for rest of season like we did against chelsea I'll be made up - moaning about our board - they've been crap for over 20 years how come people are suddenly waking up. Let's get behind the team and stop living in cloud cookoo land that there are loads of serious buyers out there interested in everton, there isn't

4) Buy nothing in the ground.
I'm not giving that cunt Kenwright another SINGLE penny of my money.
Words could not express my absolute hatred for that thing.
73 Posted 31/01/2011 at 21:47:46
10 - 12 mill, pocket change to Chelsea
Moyes wouldnt get any of it to spend
Maybe a freebie like 1993 when we sold Keown to the Arse and got good olde Kenny Sansom for nowt

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.

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.

"Russians... any Russians bidding this evening..We've world cup finalists going cheap"
"Speaking of Russians...Any discerning Swedish gentleman desperate to get back to the Premier League about... Well Sir, I've just the deal for you...I said you loan one, you get this little Billy fella free...excluding wages, easy terms & conditions apply."
"Roll up..roll up...don't be shy, our MEGA -DEALZ sales must end soon"
Note to buyers - Don't worry if you miss out tonight our Summertime CLOSING DOWN sale will be spectacular.

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?

Look at our outgoing: Peanuts, Yak, Vaughan, Agard, Silva, others?.
Look at incoming: A 19 year old nobody from Greece and a 17 year old on loan.
We are objectively weaker than we were before the window opened.

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.
179 Posted 31/01/2011 at 22:53:00
And we think WE'RE fucked!
Glad I don't support them.

Wonder if he'd be interested in the manager's job when Moyes walks?
Oh yeah ? it can always get worse...
203 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:01:28
204 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:03:08
So on to Saturday: Everton 4 Blackpool 2 ? get on it at the bookies and cheer yourselves up a bit.
205 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:03:45
Alright, I'm just glad I'm not a Gooner! Wenger, what a wanker, eh?
206 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:00:58
He is out 24/7 trying to find one.
207 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:04:15
Holding off interest in Neville (even if the bid was fucking derisory) is a real show of ambition on our part! It has send a loud message to the big boys that we are in it!!!...until around May.
208 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:07:06
209 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:06:28
210 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:00:16
But According to some sources on the Cowsheds forum, Everton have lodged a £400k bid.
Could be true, I suppose.
211 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:08:49
I bet he thinks the people on this site are dangerous extremists and a potential threat to security, rather than the average fan.

"...for a total of £73million, but the big spenders last night were Everton who in a last minute rush secured..."
220 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:14:33
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.
221 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:17:17
Richard Dodd: Show Yourself.
222 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:18:56
And if your uncle had fucked your mother he'd be your father.
They didn't sign, we didn't bother asking anyone else. and now we're stuck with what we've got.
223 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:22:44
WTF, dear oh dear!!!
224 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:21:24
Never mind... I'll never forgive that rat Kenwright though.
225 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:26:16
For me this whole wretched night for EFC is summed up thus: Liverpool FC have signed 'The New Duncan Ferguson' for £35million.
226 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:22:45
I think we all secretly excpected things to be like this... but I didn't expect to be as completely fucked off with this situation as I am right now.
If I was Moyes I'd walk.
If I was me, I'd cry.
If I was Kenwright, I'd go into hiding for a very long time.
At least relegation battles can be quite exciting things!
227 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:37:34
228 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:38:55
Some of the comments here have provided a chuckle, but it is really gallows humour. Really, there's nothing funny about how deep in the shit we are.
Thanks Kenwright for yet more disappointment... on that front, he truly nevers let me down.
229 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:36:51
230 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:40:59
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.
231 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:42:40
232 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:48:00
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.

235 Posted 31/01/2011 at 23:43:36
Everton deadline day signings:
Bill Kenwright has pulled out all the stops by signing a gigantic "WATCH THIS SPACE" sign to play up front.
Turns out its actually his For Sale Sign from the West End which has been spaypainted with EVERYTHING MUST GO!
Anybody else remember the rollercoaster of emotions on Deadline day summer 2008 when we got the Fellaini update 25 mins after deadline shut ? it was euporia mixed with confusion over shelling out an alleged fee of £15 million (now known to be wrong figure) on an unknown - Now look at us, praying like mad we get that 18 year old greek for the youth team.
Nil satis nisi optimum it ain't tonight...
236 Posted 01/02/2011 at 00:14:53
237 Posted 01/02/2011 at 00:02:49
Best protest that could be made... DM will not throw away money by resigning and BK cannot afford to sack him!! We are stuck with them both...
I am not going to watch them as the club is being allowed to rundown and it breaks my heart.
238 Posted 01/02/2011 at 01:08:46
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.

Andy van der Meyde is coming back to save us... YESSSSSS.
243 Posted 01/02/2011 at 06:44:39
244 Posted 01/02/2011 at 08:13:57
Surely enough to have afforded a loan fee for someone (anyone)???
245 Posted 01/02/2011 at 08:52:03
The dour, negative twat has NEVER won a trophy at anytime during his managerial career... how the fuck he can be considered great by anyone is beyond me.
246 Posted 01/02/2011 at 09:03:11
Billy has just announced that Jean the tea lady at Finch Farm has signed a new 6-year contract and is so committed to the club that she has agreed to the minimum wage.
Bill stated that all we need to do is to tie up the rest of the squad on these terms and the club will be way on the way to getting in that investment that he has been searching for 24/7 for the past decade.
247 Posted 01/02/2011 at 10:00:45
Beattie ? lost £3 million
Krøldrup ? lost £3 million
Davies ? lost £1.5 million
Van der Meyde ? waste of £1.5 million
Idan Tal!! ? £1 million lost
£10 million lost on poor transfers. Moyes is equally to blame with Billy Bullshit

249 Posted 01/02/2011 at 13:27:08
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!
