Brian over at RBA and I had an exchange, you can get my answers there. Here is his to ours.
The big story with Everton recently is the showdown talks for Moyes with them. Is this finally when Moyes has had enough and looks to try his hand somewhere else, especially a place that doesn't have moths flying out of the wallet?
The fact we were able to spend at least a little money in January should give fans hope that Moyes will stay, but until we get a more viable owner, there will always be concerns about just how long Moyes is willing to stay. There is not doubt he is frustrated, but I think he would have to be offered a job that is an obvious step up from Everton such as a Champions League team, and not an Aston Villa type squad.
How do you think Moyes would do if he had, for example, the Chelsea job (though we realize he'll never get it)?
A European place isn't totally out of the question for the Toffees. How realistic is that aim?
You haven't lost since Jan. 11th. What's been the biggest reason for that streak?
As a Yank, it always angers me when Landon Donovan won't stay to try himself out against the best and instead runs home for the comforts of SoCal (though beaches, sun, and that wife probably are a very convincing argument). Do Everton fans get frustrated too?
Everton fans are frustrated Donovan won't stay, but there is not realistic chance of him ever staying unless he can arrive on a free transfer. Before the World Cup, MLS was asking somewhere around 12 million pounds for Donovan. Everton do not have that type of money, especially for a player who is not turning 30. Would it be great to have him permanently? Yes, but all but the most deluded fans know he won't be coming to Merseyside permanently for a while, if at all.
First impressions of Jelavic? Might he solve the revolving door of forwards you seemingly have had for years?
I think Everton continues their unbeaten run, but it isn't enough to beat Liverpool. I go with a 0-0 draw that features plenty depressing moments for both teams in terms of shots on goal.
