He has matured into a very good target man. cheers

The ESPN commentators said something interesting during the Swansea game. Apparently they were in the same hotel as some of the Everton coaches and got a-talking. The EFC guys were saying that Vic lacks a lot of confidence and doesn't think he is good enough to play at PL level. So it sounds like he needs an arm around the shoulder every now and again king

He's winning me over and I think he can do a job for us. His ball control isn't great but his finishing is ok and he is as strong as an ox. The Swansea defence took a battering on Saturday.
Moyes said something similar to that in the post-match interview, that Vic has been lacking in self confidence and that's why he's been so-so (read bad).

It hasn't been the best of weeks for Victor Anichebe.



The Nigerian international had started the season brightly. Notably coming on and scoring against Newcastle and starting and scoring against Swansea with Jelavic out injured.

Big Vic was unlucky to be left out when Jela returned to full fitness, but was back in the team for the 1-1 draw at QPR.

Then he was down as on the bench on the official team sheet at Fulham at the weekend, but then mysteriously missing from the bench.

The next day he was summoned to play for the Everton under 21's, but got carried off with an injury after 20 odd minutes.

Moyesy said: "I just decided not to use him at the last minute. I won't elaborate on it anymore."

Vic's had better weeks. What do you think?

Fair play to him. He has worked hard for the club and has scored a few important goals. He let himself down the other season by having a hissy fit because Moyes turned down a loan bid from Hull. If he can continue like this all will be forgotten though and he could prove to be a decent player.

Then again he could be shite again next match. Very Happy

thye highlights of our Villa game 4 years ago is on the OS. Vic gets a penalty with a run down the middle, Villa defenders in disarray, and I remember thinking the lad was coming good. To add to that, Rodders scores the first goal, and I thought the same of him.
4 years huh?

I think the words "Drogba" and "Anichebe" were mentioned in the same sentence last night on MOTD! Must say, his general play has improved vastly but still probably needs 4 good chances to score once. Probably up there as player of the season for us which is something I thought I would never say!

He was a real handful yesterday. Credit to Moyes for getting our midfielders to play the ball into his feet rather than hoof it in the air where it would have been dealt with easily by Samba.

In the papers Moyes is saying how well Vic is doing and that he needs his confidence boosting with praise. And then he tells MOTD that if he could buy one player it would be a centre-forward.

I'm guessing that many of us thought the same.

btw, saw this about Royston
"Drenthe left Real Madrid after his contract expired on 30 June 2012. In December he signed a deal with Alania Vladikavkaz which, eventually, started on 2 February of the following year.
Drenthe made his league debut for his new team on 9 March 2013, against Rostov. After the game, coach Valery Gazzaev called him a "great professional and an example for the youth."

Victor will be concentrating on his club football for a while. Errr, thanks Vic.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/22365540


Everton striker Victor Anichebe has put his international career with Nigeria on hold so he can "manage his body accordingly".

Lagos-born Anichebe, 25, has told BBC Sport that for the time being, he does not want to be considered for Nigeria.

He had been tipped for a return to the Nigeria squad for June's World Cup qualifiers and Confederations Cup, replacing the injured Emmanuel Emenike.

"The best thing for me at the moment is to focus on club football," he said.

Anichebe has been plagued by injuries over the past few years, including a groin problem on his last appearance for Nigeria in a 2-0 win over Madagascar in 2011.

He insists he is proud to play for his country, but for the moment his Premier League side Everton are his priority.

"Without club football there is no international football and everyone at Everton was with me every step of the way during my injuries and rehabilitation and so I owe it to the club to manage myself correctly," he explained.

"I didn't feel that the Nigerian federation was there for me then in the same manner, which was especially disappointing given that I got the injury representing my country.

"But I don't blame anyone for this nor do I have any issues with anybody from the NFF or Stephen Keshi our coach.

"He has done a fantastic job and is building a team that Nigerians can be proud of."

A former England youth international, Anichebe switched allegiance and played his first game for Nigeria in March 2008.

He scored on his debut in a 2-0 win over South Africa to help them reach the 2008 Olympics and was then part of the squad that went on to win silver in Beijing.

Despite the recent setbacks and decision to put club over country, Anichebe has no regret to have chosen Nigeria over England.

"A lot of people ask me if I was sad that I wasn't part of the Nations Cup winning team but I couldn't have been happier because it brought so much happiness to Nigerians especially after there has been so much tragedy," he said.

"I know football cannot take away some of the pain it has caused but it was good for the country.

"I am just like the 170 million Nigerians out there, I am a fan obviously as well as a player.

"If I had gone would I be playing for my club at the level I am now? Perhaps not, so it worked out well for both sides.

"The time is just not right for me to resume my international career as of yet but I would certainly love to represent my country in the none-too-distant future."

He don't feel the Love from the Nigerian boss Stephen keshi .To be fair to Anichebe,he's playing some of his best football for Everton.

Roberto doesn't seem to rate him, but without him we have no striker strong enough to occupy opposition centre halves and give them a lot of work to deal with, which was exactly what we needed against West Brom. I honestly think we'd have won that game if Vic had been playing. Last season he looked like he'd really turned a corner in terms of attitude an workrate. I think it'd be a shame if we let him go.

after being unable to score against West Brom I would have thought we would be looking to add to, not reduce our striking options - especially as Vic is probably our lowest paid striker

I kinda like Vic, but he's very similar to Kone I think.. both big bullies but rather shite really ... now we have Kone I'd sell Vic if we got 3M... but I do agree we need better options up front... we are piss poor in front of goal ... we need Defoe or someone else like him that is out of favour who actually knows where the net is... Lukaku on loan ????.. or even buy in installments as he isn't in Mourinho plans according to papers

Towards the end of last season, I really thought that Vic had found his game and could be a force to rely on up front. However, that doesn't appear to be the case after all.

He also needs to learn to take the ball in his stride and not always have the back towards the goal when he gets it.

We clearly need a quality striker, something we don't have at the moment. Is Sharpy fit to play perhaps?
