Toffee Link Central 10/6: An increase in news and interest after a victory!

The rumors have finally started to trickle in for the January transfer window. It doesn't hurt that we finally got three points in a match and interest has started to gain in the club again. Oddly enough, a lot of these links are about midfielders, the one position we don't need to waste money on.


Anyway, here are the links, after the break.


Everton willing to swap Steven Pienaar for Tottenham's Niko Kranjcar - report -
This would be great. Kranjcar seems to be out of favor and he would really be a great addition to our attack. Seems that Moyes is trying to get anything valuable for Pienaar instead of losing him for nothing. I was pretty pumped when I heard this, then I saw this...


Everton FC: Kranjcar cools Pienaar swap rumours > Everton FC > Sport | Click Liverpool
Niko Kranjcar has doused rumours of his joining Everton in a deal that would see Steven Pienaar going the other way, to White Heart Lane.

- Pretty standard response by Kranjcar, saying that he is happy at where he is. Either way, these are rumors and you should never get your hopes up.


Everton set to fend off Wolfsburg's interest in John Heitinga - report -
Seems that a couple of teams are interested in Heitinga. We probably win either way. I want him to stay, but if we do lose him it will probably be at a big premium over what we spent on him.


Aston Villa and Everton set for Muntari battle - Fansfc
A really good footballer, but one hell of a headcase. Plus he's a midfielder, and we just don't have the funds to buy someone in a position we already have plenty of talent in. But if he is cheap, I'm all for it. Wait a minute, maybe I'm not.


Coleman called into Ireland squad - The Irish Times - Fri, Oct 01, 2010
Everton’s young full-back Seamus Coleman has been called into the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Russia and Slovakia later this month.

- This is somewhat old news, but it must be quite an exciting time for Coleman right now. His appearances for Everton have obviously impressed others.


Bayern Munich, Milan and Roma groundshare so why can't Liverpool and Everton, Tottenham and West Ham? | Mail Online
As if the boardroom battle was not momentous enough on Merseyside, the idea of Liverpool and Everton sharing a new stadium is back on the agenda.

- Quite an interesting article. I know most fans reject the idea, But here are the facts: 1) Liverpool are in debt and Everton have very little money (neither can afford to build a big stadium on their own) 2) The stadiums are extremely close in proximity. 3) Liverpool has been granted public land, but Everton have not (typical). People think groundsharing will lead to a loss in identity, and it will a little. You won't be able to call a stadium your own. There can't be pride over the stadium either. But some of these arguments that Liverpool or Everton fans will be flooding their games are ridiculous. Major clubs with big rivalries groundshare and it works out. The fact is, if our fan bases are as passionate as they are thought to be, then it doesn't matter where we play.
