I've thought this for a while, I thought it again when I saw him make Tim Howard look like an amateur the other week and again today when he scored two great goals v West Ham.
The boy has something we really lack - pace and skill.
The core of our team is strong but with the exception of Beckford and Coleman we lack pace and with those two they don't have nearly the experience that N'Zogbia does.
I can't see the next transfer window passing without us losing at least one high profile player (Rodwell/Baines) plus with income from presumed sales of Yak and Yobo, surely we can muster up the £10mil (approx) it would take to prize N'Zogbia away?
I just think he's class and it would make my summer a lot happier if I knew I would be watching him pull on a blue shirt and running out at Goodison next season!

I've been watching one player in particular this season and I'd love us to get him, if not permanently at least on loan: Daniel Sturridge. He'd be brilliant for us I reckon.
Secondly I'd go for Charles N'Zogbia from Wigan, and lastly I'd go for Demba Ba. All relatively young, all pacey (Ba admittedly not as much as the other two) and all able to SCORE GOALS!
I wonder if I wrote to Jim'll Fix it?

Unfortunately Jim won't be able to fix this one. Everton are mighty broke. Try looking in the lower divisions for your transfer treats.
All the best,

I have taken the option to not renew my season ticket this year after over 10 years and adopt the pay-as-you-play mentality as progress next season will be even harder.

- Moses (if Wigan get relegated could be cheap)
- Jennings (Tranmere)
- Joe Cole?
But, most of these players would be far less than £10m each. What about the big striker we need? Unless it's a real gamble, you are looking at most of the money we will get from any sale just on the front man. I would love to see Sturridge at Everton though. Great player.

A few teams looked at Moses, reputedly Moyes did too and said no before he went to Wigan. We are desperately short of pace and need a few places sorting out; at least one striker and at least one preferably two fast wingers. Expect the same as this season ? a one-way door, players out and fuck all back in of any note.

Let's face it, if you had the choice, Everton would not be high up on your list at the moment to join. New investment or new owners are needed, not players. Throw in a new manager as well!

We would have French connections all the way up the park, DIstin, Gueye, N'Zogbia, Saha as well as Felliani and Arteta who speak French...

Yes, we have had some very good buys over the years but we are still hanging on to some players who are not up to par and they will still be here next season if Moyes is. Enough has been said this season about the ''usual suspects'' but they still play and they still perform inconsistantly and Everton remain a mid-table outfit. We are not even 100% sure about 7th place yet for what it is worth.,

At Newcastle, he was always angling for a move, speaking to the press every month. Also, he was about to sign for Birmingham this season and then, at the very last second, demanded an extra £10k a week. Birmingham were that outraged they stopped negotiations immediately.
I suspect he would flourish at Everton but would be off to the highest bidder the minute he got the chance.
It's a pass for me, I'm afraid!
