    If you go purely on resale value you can make those transfers look reasonable, but there's no getting round the fact that they were fairly poor buys and didn't perform well at all. The fact that Fulham thought it was a good idea to pay in excess of 10m for Johnson is mind boggling actually.

    You could say they weren't the best buys granted but they weren't extremely poor either by any means. He utilized all of them effectively when they were there in one form of the other.

    Not one of them was a complete write off (Particularly not Johnson), and even if they were average players he got enough out of them for his team and hence were sold for decent fees which is important for a club like Everton as they can't afford complete duds without resale value.

    Anyways no manager is going to have a 100% perfect record but Moyes' on the whole is very good which was the main point. With the wage limitations and the need to sell their best players regularly, a few dud signings there without the bargain and they could easily be setback 3/4 years and go downwards.

    Yeah there isn't a manager around who hasn't signed some duds in his time. Moyes is no different, but in relative terms I'd say he's definitely been a fair way above average in the transfer market.

    Di Canio traveling to Sunderland for Talks according to SSN apparently. He's a walking circus.

    Pulis is the absolute king of that. He spent 30 million on Palacios, Crouch, Kenwyne Jones and Cameron ****ing Jerome- then when they get spanked by Arsenal he blames not having enough money.
    Yeah this really ****s me off about Stoke. I could just about handle them playing horrible football if they where on a tiny budget but they have spent so much money on so much crap.

    It's also annoying how any of the decent players they've had over the years (i.e. ones who have had any flair whatsoever) weren't ever really given much of a chance. Tuncay, for instance, immediately springs to mind.

    Like I said about Moyes, will be interesting to see how he does with some money at his next club. Find out then how good a manager he really is.

    As for Di Canio to Sunderland, god help them.

    Just hope Moyes has found a new team before Wenger decides to pack in at Arsenal. Plenty of rumours going around that he'd be considered as a replacement, which for my money would be a terrible idea.

    I don't think he'll get a big job anytime soon. United are the only remotely plausible destination.

    Wtf was Villa's keeper doing for Henderson's goal today, moved about three yards in the time it took Henderson to run 30.

    Yeah I can't see it happening. They'll bring in someone from overseas.

    I'd be shocked if it happened as well, but stranger things have happened. If there's really no immediately suitable options elsewhere I could see him really being considered.

    Hopefully Michael Laudrup won't have moved to Real/Barca by that time

    I love that guy, he is just so cool.

    Doesn't need to be a BIG job though to get more money than at Everton. As some have already said, Sunderland and Stoke have spunked huge wads on dross in recent years.

    Sunderland AFC ‏@SAFCofficial 1m
    Sunderland AFC have confirmed the appointment of Paolo Di Canio as Head Coach on a two and a half year deal.

    Big risk.
