ToffeeLinks 21/11/2012: Weird Things Surrounding Everton

First, accusations of racial abuse against some in our fan base directed at our own player! Then random £6 million bids for Real Madrid players? What is going on?

Alex Livesey

Target of hate, Seamus Coleman -
"Everton have come out with a strong defence of Ireland full back Seamus Coleman after the Donegal player was subjected to anti-Irish abuse online by a small section of the club's support."

-- I don't know what kind of fans did this, but this is absolutely shameful. We are better than that at Everton.

Madrid rejects Everton offer for Cheryshev - (English version)
"Madrid rejects Everton offer for Cheryshev - Denis Cheryshev continues to make giant strides forward. Last week he made his debut with Russia under Fabio Capello, yesterday it was José Mourinho calling him up to travel to Manchester with the first team."

-- What? We offered them £6 to get him? I seriously doubt that

Everton FC need you more than ever, Distin tells the returning Gibson - Chester Chronicle
"Sylvain Distin has hailed the imminent return of midfielder Darron Gibson as he insisted the Blues need him more than ever."

Everton - Everton linked with two new signings
-- Supposedly they are U-19 player John Stones and 27 year old, £2million rated Moudou Sougou (awesome name by the way), who plays for CFR Cluj.

At £30 million should Everton sell Marouane Fellaini?
"David Moyes appears open to big offers for the Belgian 24-year-old who is in tremendous form so far this season. So with Manchester City, Chelsea and many others reportedly interested should Everton continue their trend of selling their prized assets in order to maintain stability at Goodison?"

-- Not too much analysis done here. They pretty much just ask us the question and give us vague background details. Nonetheless, I think we should probably sell him if he's getting over £25 million. At that point it would probably be good business. But anything less wouldn't be worth it just because of his dominance and his age (still just 24).
