I pretty much agree with this. I can see this being a big season for Saha, along with Vaughan and Anichebe, with 3 having to become 1. If Saha has a good season, i can see him getting a new 2 year contract to see his career out with us, with Vaughan and Anichebe moving on, and the next set of kids replacing them.


Is he not off to Stoke for 5-6 mil ???


Hope not could be a good player.

Would of taken it - we need the money and he is 31 and on 40k a week and injury prone - could of used the money to get Defour without selling Lescott and if Jo is any good buy him at the end of the season

They can have him for 8 mate! And "Yes" I hope he makes me eat my words if he stays with us.

Why sell the fastest ever goal scoring forward in FA cup history? So much has been said about Lescott and also Owen. It's a bit like having Andy Gray in your team when everyone snuffs it. A fully fit Everton is dangerous, add some players and we are there.

A lot of the reports are saying that Saha didn't want to go, something that is nice to hear! He's obviously settled in and wants to play for us.

Getting back to Vaughan, this has to be his "break out" season, and I'm not talking hives here.
He has to be the impact sub we've been in need of, or a player pushing the established strikers for their spot.
Sadly, I don't see him doing it.
He's a greyhound in the Lineker mold. Unless we use his pace, and he uses his finishing ability, he's not going to light up the tree.
I wish him well. The kid deserves some gook luck.
If it wasn't for bad luck, he wouldn't have no luck at all.

Must say as much as I think he is a great striker considering his injury problem and age 8 million would have been a very tempting offer. I would actually go as far to say I think we should have taken it.

Where does it say 8m?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1215927/Saha-From-sicknote-superstriker--Everton-getting-best-enigmatic-striker.html

Just thought i'd post this in here, thought it was very apt.



Very Happy

Saha: From sicknote to superstriker - how Everton are getting the best out of an enigmatic striker


Louis Saha, hugely relieved at finally being able to reel off successive appearances without succumbing to injury, listed all the parts of his anatomy that once troubled him but that are now able to withstand the rigours of top-flight football.

He missed one out, and, by common consent, it was the most important of all. His mind. David Moyes has worked on it relentlessly over the past 13 months and has finally succeeded in restoring his self-belief to a level that captured the attention of Sir Alex Ferguson some years ago.

Sharing a pot of tea with former Everton manager Walter Smith at Manchester United's training ground , Ferguson challenged his close friend to identify the one striker he would most like to see at Old Trafford.

Each name from a who's who of global greats met with a shake of the head, until a chortling Ferguson ended the guessing game by announcing: 'If I could have one striker in the world, it would be Louis Saha.'

The United manager soon changed his tune after paying Fulham 12.8million to have his wish granted and seeing Saha's quicksilver skills gradually nullified by an alarming propensity for picking up injuries.

After four-and-a-half years, he had seen enough to write off almost his entire outlay and allow Saha to join Everton for next to nothing. As he did so, he is believed to have ventured the opinion that a vast range of ailments could all be traced back to the same source. In Ferguson' s v i e w, the France forward's fragile mental state was at least instrumental in the amount of time spent on the sidelines.

There is little in life, let alone football, that can surprise Ferguson at his age, but he may well be taken aback at the way Saha has cast aside his shackles this season and been a virtual ever-present, scoring six goals into the bargain.

The rejuvenated marksman could have been plying his trade in Turkey but for Everton rejecting an 8m bid from Galatasaray in the summer.

It would have represented a tidy profit, but Moyes was not interested after going to work on the Saha psyche from day one.

The 31-year-old had still to locate his dressing-room peg when one of Everton's backroom staff told him: 'We've signed a 30m striker for nothing and you are going to prove it.'
Louis Saha - Newcastle United

Despair of a journeyman: on loan at Newcastle in 1999, with Fulham five
years later, then at Manchester United in 2006

The club's medical experts played their part by adopting a different approach from the barely concealed frustration at Old Trafford that eventually left a despairing Saha believing every minor niggle was the precursor to another lengthy lay-off.

Physio Mick Rathbone and his team set about convincing him minor mishaps were an occupational hazard that could be remedied in no time, and Saha's self-esteem, at an all-time low near the end of his United career, began to pick up.

The transformation in his entire persona is such that he now spends international breaks being put through his paces at a private fitness centre in France to ensure his once-suspect durability remains at its peak.

Assistant manager Steve Round echoed Moyes' belief that stretching him physically has helped Saha emerge from his injury nightmare, saying: 'He is out there training every day and it has been noticeable, going back to the last three months of last season, that he has developed a capacity for extra work. He trains before and after the other players and when the international boys are away he heads to this training camp in France for four or five days with a fitness specialist.

'It was his idea and it just shows how much he wants to stay at the level he's at.


Stats Zone

'I don't think he knew what had hit him when we went away pre-season. He was running round a golf course at 7.30 in the morning as the first of four sessions each day. There was never a murmur of complaint. There is a real resolve about him to make an impact at the highest level.'

The new-look Saha is down to more than just a gruelling workload, though. Many believe he suffered from the sink-orswim attitude at United, whereas Moyes and even the rest of Everton's players have been more than happy to provide the reassurance he evidently needs.

His team-mates revere him and call him King Louis, while Moyes provides constant reminders of how many a sound judge, himself included, believes there is no better centre forward around.

He is beginning to take it on board and believe it himself, even if he didn't to begin with. Those who know him say he has never been happier and feels trusted and valued in a way he desperately wants to repay. The lethal touch that has spearheaded Everton's recent revival suggests that Moyes is already collecting.

Hang on. He got a one match ban for blowing on him.

If he had really smacked him he would have been banned for the season. He isn't a Sky4 player anymore, don't you know.

He signed a two-year deal - with the option for a third year.

We rejected 8 million in the Summer!

Please tell me that he is on a longer contract now.

Saha

Post  yankthetoffee on Mon 12 Oct 2009, 6:45 pm

If DM can keep Louis fit and in the right frame of mind, could we see Sha playing in the WC next year?
If so, could be interesting for DM, as Saha's contract would be up, as soon as the WC is over.
Do we offer him a new conract, if France pick him, and protect is market value?
