    We don't seem to be signing any one, just letting them go. confused

    I don't understand why young English players go for so much money, I'm sure its hampering the progession of the England team and causing poorer teams to flood the league with cheaper foreign players.

    So I made the decision last year to put my full support into Everton. But it wasn't until today when Arteta was sold that I truly felt like an Everton supporter. I was completely gutted by the move, as it will likely cripple our campaign. We are going to struggle to stay in the top half of the table. We just didn't do nearly enough in the market in terms of buying, and we sold too much. Can't believe we let yakubu and beckford go today, considering saha's injury problems.

    This season is going to be a rough one.

    We sold Gradel and released Grella and Besson but then bought no one.

    I don't think Arteta's such a bad deal tbh. The only downside is that Moyes won't see a penny of the 10m.

    You already have Rodwell, who in my book is going to be one of the best midfielders in the planet, Leon Osman will break through & as always, Cahill & Fellaini will be there.

    But speaking for sales that the manager doesn't see a penny of, Anyone else notice that the 35m Newcastle got for Carroll doesn't seem to have been spent on players as was promised at the time?

    We've signed
    Cabaye (4.3m),
    Ba (free),
    Marveaux (free),
    Obertan (3.23m),
    Elliott (0.1m),
    Santon (5m).

    So that's a total of 12.1m spent.

    But then we've sold

    Carroll (35m)
    Nolan (4m)
    Barton (free)
    Routledge (2m)
    Forster (loan)
    Enrique (6m)

    So ignoring the Carroll fee, we've recovered 12m on player sales.

    We've also had the usual crap of trying to put a desperate bid in for Ruiz 2 hours before the window shuts. If we need a striker (which we do), the money was there, why not start bidding in January? Shane Long went to West Brom. Not a big fee, not big wages.

    We've not got enough cover at Centre Back either.

    & that's before we've gone out & spent 100k on a keeper from Charlton who's not as good as Forster who we've just loaned to feckin Celtic?

    It's almost enough to make me wish we had Kenwright! ;-)

    Not too gutted by our deals - would have liked Cahill, but all in all, a good clearing of dead wood

    Friedel (Free)
    Ceballos (Free)
    Falque (Loan)
    Coulibaly (Free)
    Parker (6 million)

    O'Hara (5 million)
    Keane (5 million)
    Crouch (10 million)
    Palacios (8 million)
    Hutton (3 million)
    Jenas (1 million for loan)
    Bentley, Caulker, Khumalo, Naughton and various kids (loan)

    so that's 26 million, 400-500k in wages and the remaining funds not spent from last year's run in Europe - a nice bundle all round without weakening the side.

    Cahill would definitely have been a good one though
