The transfer window is a frustration time for an Everton fan. In fairness, David Moyes must be even more annoyed.
All the teams around him are spending cash, building squads what can last the pace in a hectic season, trying to get a group that can absorb injuries and suspensions.
He must often ponder what he would do if a wealthy American or an oil tycoon from the
came to Goodison with a transfer budget. He would almost certainly have more options at his disposal for the long season, for cup runs and Europa League campaigns. Middle East
As it stands, his options are slim. He has a great keeper in Howard, two excellent centre backs in Jagielka and Distin. On their left is Leighton Baines who last season, in my opinion was one of the best players in the premiership. On the right, there is young Killybegs flyer Seamus Coleman.
In midfield there is Arteta who makes them tick and the almost unmarkable Tim Cahill. Fellaini does not offer enough and picks up too many bookings. After that you have the workrate of the likes of Heitinga, Neville and Osman, but they lack a recognised striker.
They are relying on Beckford who is finding his feet in the Premiership and Saha who always struggles with injuries.
Here is my Everton team.
Goalkeeper – Sorenson
Defence - Izaguirre (Celtic), Richard Dunne, Robert Huth
Midfield – Heitinga, Barkley, Osman
Attack-Saha, Shane Long, Craig Bellamy, Robbie Keane
