perhaps, perhaps, perhaps
Unless Everton sign a replacement then it would make no sense for them to sell him to us.
Everton are skint but they only have 3 strikers, Saha, Anichebe and Beckford. So it's unlikely.
Are we big enough for him and wasn't he a boyhood everton fan???
exactly, they going going to sell us Saha for nowt when they have no-one and no cash to replace him
Another one that goes completely against the grain from the boards point of view. They won't sign 30 year old + players on big wages with no sell on value. So the likes of Fuller, Keane, Saha, Carew etc...forget it. No chance. I'm surprised people haven't noticed a pattern in the sort of player we sign under Bruce, Quinn and Short
Tony Pulis, interviewed on SSN stated categorically that Sunderland DID put in a bid for Fuller and that it wasn't turned down by Stoke so that blows your theory out of the water Jarvis. I suspect terms could not be agreed with the player and on that basis Saha may well be a target.
Unlikely, as there's no PM requests fleeing around
But surely it would depend on the offer? We may have offered 0.5M and wages of 25k as he will be surplus to requirements in 3 months and this was turned down. Certainly our aim looks to be long term purchases of young players
It would do if Tony Pulis was telling the truth, but he wasn't, as SAFC have since put on record. The only way we would sign a player like that would be for a knock down fee of say a million quid, but even then I think he's only 6 months into a 3 year contract which we would have to match so I'm sticking to 'it's bollocks' if that's all the same with you
TP is a known liar though
He said categorically we HAD made a bid and it was NOT turned down. The wages we offer Fuller have nowt to do with Stoke......that is between us and Fuller and must be the reason why we did not sign him last week.
Not in the inner circle then?
Variations on the truth seem to be quite common in our recent dealings. There is the selling clubs stance and ours with a big grey area inbetween and this is probably where the truth actually lies. It was the same with the Bent transfer.......Villa's, Bent's and Houlier's versions against SAFC's.
Banks and creditors couldnt give a shite about their premier status.
If they've been living beyond their means Everton have no choice but to reduce their costs ( high wage earners ) and bring in revenue ( sell players who other teams mifgt want ).
They've sold pienaar, they've sent Yakabu to Leicester.
