Bardsley Goes To Everton?

Bardsley Goes To Everton?

The Sun has reported that David Moyes offered Ł2million for Phil Bardsley and Manchester United agreed to that fee.

The young defender is unlikely to become a first-team regular at Old Trafford as Wes Brown, John O'Shea and even Jonny Evans block his way to being Gary Neville's understudy.

He's had loan spells at Rangers and Villa but not exactly set the world alight at these clubs though seems to have done enough to convince David Moyes to launch a bid for him.

The reported fee, Ł2M (the same price as that in the 'Scholes to Sunderland' rumour, by the way...) is absolutely reasonable and I think it would be a good business for both Everton and us if Bardsley moved there. The Sun reckons it will happen as United have accepted the offer though Bardsley is thought to be reluctant to leave Old Trafford.

If he ends up leaving, well, good luck to him. He's had troubles with Le Guen at Rangers but falling out with the Frenchman is a feat far from impossible so I don't think he's a troublesome guy. He would perform well at a club like Everton, under a manager like Moyes.

Surprised Everton are going for him given his performances for Villa!

his agent has denied it now.

he is a good player but you just dont need him, you have anough quality in the team, that he wouldnt even get a bite of the first team, unless you have a major injury crisis and even then i think you would look elsewhere
20/06/2007 15:49:00
never going to play for us. A good player. he might want to go for first team football
20/06/2007 17:25:00
You say he;s a good player, he was awful for us (Villa). He is welcome to go to Everton, not surprised O'Neill didnt want him permanently. Good luck for next season lads, just hope we don't get you in FA Cup again!!

Good luck to you too. you got a good set up there at villa. I can see good things happening this season
20/06/2007 22:10:00
i hope so Matt. We have been sleeping giants for too long now and we deserve our bit of glory! We have a good squad already and with a few signings we can go far with Martin O'Neill and Randy Lerner at the helm. Out of you and Chelsea to win the league again i want you to. Chelsea- A nothing small team with money, buy their success! Up the Villa!
