I could see the point of Phil Neville when he came down the road but if the press reports of Wes Brown turning up for £3m, or even on a free, are true when we're supposedly so strapped for cash then serious questions will have to be asked of both Moyes (for buying) and Kenwright (for sanctioning the deal).
'He would 'prefer a move to Everton' ? I'd prefer to win the fucking Lottery. If a precious £3m is to be pissed away on that hapless, over-the-hill tosser to give him one last payday, Everton will have lost a fair slice of self-respect in my book.

How many more aging defenders do we need? Better spend the money on a youngster who's only going to increase in value.

Can you imagine him on the phone to other managers or scouts?
"Hello it's David Moyes here, I'm looking for a s-s-s-s-s-s-t-t-t-t-t ah fuck it send me another defender"

What ever the question is, the answer is not Wes Brown.
I wouldn't touch the required barge pole with an even longer barge pole and a pair of rubber gloves.

I would take him on a free but certainly not for 3m!
Doubt it's true though as where would that leave Moyes's Lover Neville!

I can see a pattern emerging here.
Why are we always linked with UTDs cast aways, it's becomming a joke now.
I can fully understand where Fellani is coming from with his "sub-top" comments, even though, with signing like this prove we aren't "sub top".
We do indeed need new fresh faces in the team but please ones that are going to invigorate / provide a boost not a ageing crock.

Like most I don't see the sense in Brown but I'll give my opinion and save my opinion for when he's signed on the dotted line, not when the Mail break the exclusive.

BUT...we must strengthen our squad with a decent striker with low mileage on the clock and a wideman who can beat his man and cross the ball....
If Brown can play left back he could be cover for Baines !!!!!!!

Not bad purchases at all by Moyes as far as defenders go, and hardly a crazy amount. Seems to me he can say striker just as well as defender. Of course, given that 4:1 ratio I mentioned earlier supply and demand economics would mean that they would be much more expensive than the load of defenders always available. And the prices of the likes of Torres and Carroll last season would seem to prove that. Now I think we're getting somewhere. So Everton is very low on money, can't afford too much transfer fees, so therefore couldn't afford to constantly be buying 2-3 new expensive strikers every season. But you know what, I'm sure it's just that Moyes hates strikers, or can't pronounce the word, or whatever else is simple enough for you to think of and type on a forum. I'm sure Moyes would love to field a midfield of all defenders and leave out Fellaini, Arteta, Cahill, Rodwell, Osman, Bilyaletdinov when all fit.

If he does sign then, lambast away. I know a lot of people on here love the critise Moyes , but come on.
If it does actually happen, it means Johnny H. is away somewhere for a decent few quid.
