Can any of you believe that, despite having around 6 medicals since Thursday*, we still haven't signed that fella from the mancs?
Seriously though, let's hope that things are progressing behind the scenes to strengthen our squad. MS will give us better options in midfield than we already have, providing there are no last minute snags. Just a case of getting match fitness since he hasn't really featured too much this season.
Of the players we have been linked with, whether it is the press just throwing names in the hat or not, I hope we stay away from Fonte. As good as he has been for the saints, at 33 I think we should pass on bringing him to Goodison. Mainly because he is the wrong side of 30, we have enough of them in defence as it is. We only have to look at Jags and how he seems to have aged this summer, his legs have gone imo.
I'd take the lad from West Brom in a shot if it wasn't for his attitude, he certainly knows where the net is.
Hopefully we will get the MS deal over the line in the next 48hrs and then maybe ship a couple out. Fingers crossed it is a busy month with comings and goings as RK and SW shape up the squad
