Everton to offer Carragher Jr. a route into the Premier League

| Tuesday, 11 May 2021 26comments  |  Jump to last
Everton are reportedly in talks with Wigan Athletic over signing James Carragher, son of ex-Liverpool defender and current Sky Sports pundit Jamie.

The 18-year-old is out of contract at the League One club this summer, although they would be due a development fee.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Carragher is the only incoming transfer David Unsworth is planning for the Under-23s squad this summer as the club continue to blood talent from the academy at USM Finch Farm.

Let's hope he has better manners than his father. Unsworth obviously sees something in him to even consider. It will be interesting to know whether he is a Blue or a Gobshite all the same.

I wouldn't judge him on his father's behaviour, to be fair, Derek!!

I would judge him on his parentage. We shouldn't do anything to aid Son of Carra after the piss-taking shite his father has spouted fron his Sky perch.

''Carra'' can't stand the thought of his lad playing for Everton so he's persuaded his mate at Rangers to get involved. Hmmm.

Is he good enough – that's surely the only question. If he is, why not? I quite like the idea of the son of a 'Liverpool legend' giving it to them at Anfield!

Call me cynical but could this just be a sweetener to get better Sky punditry from Carragher Snr on all things Everton?

Well seeing Jagielka has let his son join Liverpool, I don't know why people get worked up over such nonsense. Owen who's father played for Everton sadly went to Liverpool and Fowler another Everton kid went to Liverpool.

Really, the question should be how did these 2 end up at Liverpool and not Everton.

Brian, don't forget Rush, another boyhood Blue, but Peter Reid was a red as I understand.

What does it matter if he's good enough?

The difference is that Carra has been quite insulting to us and gloated on TV at our every mistake.

Given he was a match-going Evertonian back in the day, and okay he spent his career at Liverpool, can anyone explain his quite obvious hatred for us?

Hilarious replies. Carragher talks up the Blues any chance he gets except when he's clearly partaking in banter.

Brian Harrison, might the answer in one case be £50,000?

In other news, good to see money has been raised for Chris Lawler's hip replacement….

The lad was in Liverpool's Acadamy until he was 14, then he joined Wigan. I don't know if he left by choice or was released.

I'd never heard anything about him until the last few days... are we paying a fee for him?

It's all about ability, leave that to the scouts. If he's deemed good enough, we'll soon see ourselves what he is like. His dad and what people think about him shouldn't come into it.

Ian Horan, do you think club cares that much what Carragher or any of them has to say?

Wouldn’t let him or his son within spitting distance of god’s little acre. Swerve him,

Don't really believe in all that 'sins of the father' malarky. If he is good enough he is worth a look. His fledgling career suggests not, but they said the same about Godfrey and it was the making of the man.

Brian, I sat back and waited for the flobbing reference - 15 posts :)

Should the lad join us, I'll take a rather novel approach compared to some in this thread.

I'll judge him on his football ability.

Will. Glad you wasn’t disappointed. Let’s hope we salivating over a great summer window and somehow able to get rid of half of these letdowns. They have had enough chances. Count on one hand who we need to keep in my opinion.

...but Brian - games in hand, Man. Still "Chances"...

Derek Knox is just making a joke, he’s a funny guy he is always quick with the quips I don’t imagine he’s seriously going to give this kid a hard time. Everyone chillax.

I honestly think Carragher is pretty fair to Everton except when we play Liverpool but you’ve also go to consider that Everton fans give him a lot of shit, some banter some abuse. Souness is the one who seems to have an irrational hatred for us.

Don’t know where to put this but EVERTON U 18’s are winning 1-0 v Newcastle in their last game of the season, Cannon scoring after fourteen minutes, they have had about four efforts on the Newcastle goal before this goal. Reported from another website.

I’d go with what Shane, Kieran and Jay say. Really don’t know where people get the impression that the likes of Carragher and McManaman actually despise our club.
Joe McMahon

Si et al, I fully agree also. The only ones who I dislike are Souness and Dalglish. I'm being honest, I'm impressed at what Gerrard has done at Rangers in just 2 seasons. He could have gone into the media easily as he's a big name.

You can say 'tin pot league' and all that crap, but there is pressure in Glasgow managing both teams. Look at Brendan Rogers now, FA Cup Final today and currently in the Top 4.

I admire any ex-player who goes into management, and I was hoping Unsworth would also try in the lower leagues, but it's probably not gonna happen.

Everton U18’s won their game at Newcastle 4-2 with goals from Cannon, Lowey, Higgins and McAllister to wrap up their season.
