Everton right to go late in market if it means quality over quantity

In the latest "View from the Gwladys Street" column at the Echo's website, Nic Davies of the Executioner's Bong blog argues that fans should withhold judgement on Everton's performance in the transfer window until after the deadline.

I mean, yes, ultimately he's right. The criticism is very reasonably based on a lack of faith that we'll get that quality, though.

Quality I hear you say, hahha love it. We will buy Lennon, Evans or similar and completely miss the important positions like a centre forward, a creative midfielder, and a goalkeeper.

Just because Kone has played well in a short cameo does not mean I goal scoring problems are now solved.

Also Jags and Stonesy are a good partnership but yet we constantly conceded goals, Howard is finished in my opinion and this needs sorting out.

If this is the case we are not the only club going down this road. Pulis said on MoTD last night that he expects to be doing a lot of business in the coming weeks. Chelsea and maybe City and Manu are still pursuing Stones and no doubt will continue to do so right up to the last day of the current window.

I'm with RM on this. The transfer window should open at the end of the season and close at the beginning of the new season. Everyone would then know exactly what players they have. Also it would stop all this panic buying if a club gets off to a bad start or a spate early injuries.

It is not fair for rich clubs to be allowed to overshadow the rest of the league with speculation about who they might buy. We had a really good result yesterday yet it gets tarnished by the constant media talk about Stones and now Barkley going to one of the rich clubs.

The lad makes a lot of sense. The only problem is that when you leave it late looking for top quality, it's already been snapped up. However, I read that Roberto had identified who he wants, so hopefully, he'll get one or all of his targets.

He's right as well, as Frank has just written, that the window is slewed towards the rich clubs, who already hold the financial advantage in getting in who they want.

A lot will depend on how much the Board are willing to spend but so far, for next to nothing, Roberto has brought in one established Premier League player who is proving to be an extremely effective player for us; and a young man with bags of talent and an exciting style. We'll have to wait and see with him but so far, so good.
