Dealing with Everton

Dealing with Everton

We fully expect, this afternoon, Everton to field three ex-United players in their starting eleven.

Likely to be facing us this afternoon will be Tim Howard, Phil Neville and Darren Gibson.

Trade between the two clubs has always been good with Wayne Rooney signing for united at a very tender age from the Merseyside club.

But could there be another deal in the pipeline?

The reason I ask is that newspaper speculation is linking Sir Alex Ferguson with a move to acquire the excellent Everton left-back, Leighton Baines for a fee in the region of £5 million.

Go ahead I say!

HAHAHA, 5mil! No ******** chance, maybe 5mil for his right leg, but I would imagine Baines is going to set you back at least 20mil, to me, he is the best LB in the league, and statistically the 2nd best LB in Europe last season. I have no clue where the got 5mil from, but no chance in hell.

What's you purpose here Blue_Mel? Shouldn't you be more worried about your own clubs dwindling Champions League hopes?

Got to agree with Rob, Baines is the Premier League best LB and 5 mil is far too cheap. The defensive effort is prioritised first and foremost with Baines then attacking second, something our fullbacks struggle to get to grips with epitomised by Rafael's cross being met by Evra's header ultimately conceding us a 3rd goal due to the lack of defenders during the counter-attack. To top off Baines' reliability defensively he's great at going forward with a great left foot for crossing, shooting and set pieces. His ability considered combined with the English inflation rate, the fact that he doesn't want to leave Everton and Everton won't want to sell and in no position to need to sell the fee is more likely to be in the 15-20 mil region. Fabio is too young and inexperienced to provide strong competition and displace Evra something Baines could easily do. However, I feel it's 20 mil which could be more wisely reinvested into the team elsewhere.

It makes you question just how they came up with £5m for our most important player? Someone has got paid for making up this...

Evra has barely missed any games this season, and has been just about injury free - hes come off the boil this season, and should have defended a lot better than he has - but saying that - yes the gap will probably be cut to 3 points this afternoon, even with Wolves playing well, City should win comfortably
