I thought he fronted Nolan well today and Saha was unlucky not to finish from his cross. Still needs to grow a pair.

I thought he was utter wank again yesterday. I just don't understand what Moyes sees in him. He can't hold the ball up, he can't pass, he can't run with the ball, he has no awareness of players around him, just nothing. Surely Baxter would do a better job as a sub?

What DM sees in him, I don't know.
He hasn't developed at all since he scored a few goals in his early days.

Yeah but Vic is worse than me and even I couldn't score against Northern Ireland. He must have mis-directed a throw in or something equally freaky.

Victor Anichebe wants Everton to reward their fans by finishing the season on a high.
The Nigerian striker was handed a starting role against Wigan and gave an energetic performance as the leader of the Blues' front-line. And he knows the importance of the last three matches of the campaign, both from a personal and a team perspective.

"It was good to play up front," Anichebe told evertontv. "Sometimes I play on the left, sometimes on the right, sometimes up front - it is no problem to me. "It is good to be playing. I have been in and out with injuries but it was good to get some minutes under my belt. "The last three games are really important, it is important to finish the season on a high. "The fans pay a lot of money to watch us play and we will be giving 100 per cent until the end of the season."

Anichebe has been challenged by assistant boss Steve Round to build on his performance at the DW Stadium. Round said: “He had a good energy about him, he was committed. Victor has been through a bit of a tough time but he is only young and he is trying to establish himself. He is coming through and I thought this performance was better from him. “He needs to realise how good he could be and start performing that way. The only way he is going to win the crowd over and establish himself in the Premier League is with his performances on the pitch."

Yep, he's equally useless wherever he plays.

barring about three games Saha has been as much use if not worse. Rodwell has been appalling for most of the season may as well just have stuck a traffic cone in the centre of the pitch. Johnny Heitinga has been appalling all season. all three of those have contributed at best as much as Bily or Vic in my opinion and Beckford isn't that much ahead of them either.

Rodwell has indeed been poor, but still better than Vic. Heitinga has been poor but still better than Vic too. As for Saha, given the choice who would you seriously rather see starting up front for Everton - Vic or Louis? Saha has been miles better than the useless lazy fucker who held out for £35,000 a week to give us the privilege of watching him fall on his arse every ten minutes.

I'm not suggesting that Vic has been great, we've had a season full of piss poor performances is more the case. Saha grabbed a haul of goals over a small space of games which has papered over his earlier performances which were a very fair impression of your description of Vic above and largely in my opinion a deciding factor in our lack of goals in games we dominated and created chances in which would have changed the outlook of the whole season.

Vic's been shit but there's no need to make him a scape goat he's just one of many who've been shit.

I'm pretty sure the £35k from this storey was dismissed both by Vic and the club stating that the figure reported were massively inflated http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/everton-fc/everton-fc-news/2010/12/15/victor-anichebe-denies-reports-he-wants-to-leave-everton-fc-100252-27830451/

According to that article he turned down "nearer" £20k a week, rising to £30k depending on appearances.

And the fucking lazy useless cunt TURNED THAT DOWN! He turned down A MILLION QUID A YEAR EVEN IF HE NEVER PLAYED A SINGLE GAME FOR THE FIRST TEAM! THAT FUCKING USELESS FOOL TURNED DOWN A MILLION QUID A YEAR!
He's worth about 20p a week in my opinion. In fact, he should pay us to play. A million quid a year, and he said "nah, I'm worth a lot more than that."
Fuck off Anichebe.

I'd suggest that I could say any footballers salary and it would piss people off as what they earn for doing something we'd all pay to do is ridiculous. what footballers get paid has nothing to do with him being good or bad though, and if you want to look at wages I'd imagine Saha has been getting over double Vic's pay to be as shite if not shiter (in my opinion) for most of the season.

The difference between Vic and Bily, Rodwell and Saha is that while the latter three might be lazy, they at least have talent and thus warrant consideration for a starting place.

see Saha for all but three games this season, see Rodwell the human Traffic cone.

most of the team have been dire all for pretty much the entire season, Anichebe hasn't looked great for most of it but was better than most of our attacking players in our last two games now and yes often he's looked a lazy arse but so have Mikel, Heitinga, Rodwell, Bilya, Saha, Yak, Jags and most of them have had the added dissapointment of looking shit scared of a football.

it seems him and Bilya are the current scape goats for everything bad at Everton at the moment. I know I'm not going to get a lot of support in this argument but people being made scapegoats like this pisses me off and I also quite enjoy playing devils advocate.

I don't think it's fair, nor correct, to single out any one player for why we are dire at times. The best players on the pitch game after game are the centre backs. I think that says a lot about the team. Rodwell is an odd one. Against Wigan, and prior games as well, the wingers/CMs have been getting by him like he's not there. Worring. What happened to his bursts of speed, like the goal against Man Utd last year? Haven't seen much of that lately.

Rubbish, for starts Saha is injured Very Happy but even if he wasn't if he was playing like he played at the beginning of the season I'd rather see him on the bench. Rodwell I don't necessarily think is lazy he's just not that fucking good or at least hasn't been this season. Beckford did fuck all in his last two outings to suggest he even wanted to be on the pitch our only other options upfront are Ani and Cahill as Velios isn't good enough to start yet.

Vic has shown his abilities on a number of occasions, it's not always pretty but power and pace are effective the stupid idiot just needs to remember he needs to use them.

see Saha for all but three games this season, see Rodwell the human Traffic cone.

most of the team have been dire all for pretty much the entire season, Anichebe hasn't looked great for most of it but was better than most of our attacking players in our last two games now and yes often he's looked a lazy arse but so have Mikel, Heitinga, Rodwell, Bilya, Saha, Yak, Jags and most of them have had the added dissapointment of looking shit scared of a football.

it seems him and Bilya are the current scape goats for everything bad at Everton at the moment. I know I'm not going to get a lot of support in this argument but people being made scapegoats like this pisses me off and I also quite enjoy playing devils advocate.
I don't think it's fair, nor correct, to single out any one player for why we are dire at times. The best players on the pitch game after game are the centre backs. I think that says a lot about the team. Rodwell is an odd one. Against Wigan, and prior games as well, the wingers/CMs have been getting by him like he's not there. Worring. What happened to his bursts of speed, like the goal against Man Utd last year? Haven't seen much of that lately.

he looks worse this season than last, he doesn't seem to have anything to him. He shows little desire to do anything with the ball and doesn't have enough bite to tackle anyone in midfield or defence.

as you say our defence has been the highlight of the season and even that's been shakey. Distin is probably the most consistant but still makes absolute howlers, Jags has been off pace most of the season but seems to be getting back to his best lately, Howard has again been great lately but was at fault for a number of goals early in the season in games we would probably won if we weren't giving the opposition the oppurtunity to sit on a 1 goal lead or scrap for a hard earned draw. Baines has been imense but looks tired now, he's been getting worse for a while now and has been very poor in the last two games. Our right back is Hibbert a solid tackler but has no real passing ability so we don't attack down the right wing which makes us very predictable. and that's the strong points.
