Yep, they did their homework!

Yep, they did their homework!

This just sums up just how poorly some of the papers do their homework...

The Daily Mail have 'reported' that Everton are to table an offer of £2m for Sean Davis.

Ok, so that is fair enough - well not the £2m offer if it comes - but their 'opinion' that Everton might table a bid, but get a load of this and you will see what I mean:

'The former Fulham and Tottenham man has fallen out of favour at Fratton Park this season'.

Yep, he has really 'fallen out of favour' this season hasn't he! Considering that he has only been out of the side when injured - as he currently is - or suspended you can see he has clearly been out of favour...

The same paper also claimed that we are still trying to get Milan Baros on loan from Lyon and Olivier Kapo will come here instead of going to Wigan or Sunderland.

I would happily take Baros on loan, but the thought is that he is not that keen on coming here?

Sean will not have his automatic place in the team when he's fit but selling him would be stupid. I think our midfield is currently excellent and with Diarra showing the touch of a playmaker at times and the resurgence of Pedro, the only player, possibly surplus to requirements is Richard Hughes. Decent player but bottom of the pecking order at the moment.

It is going to be a fight for places in midfield and Sean will have more than a fighting chance of getting on of them once fit. Fallen out of favour - absolute drivvel.

I think Sean would be ahead of Pedro to be honest. Not knocking Pedro, but he can be awesome one week, and not so awesome the next (See i refrained from slating him, as i dont mean it detromentally at all). I just think Sean is younger, and now hungryer, thats all. As for Hughes, he still has it, look at his performance against Arsenal, but agree he is now 4th on the pecking list

ridiculous isnt it - makes you proud to read the papers knowing the homework is done.... i feel that diop could be the one to dip out os it ieither mendes or davis that will line-up alongside diarra and muntari - that is assuming 'arry keeps his 5 man midfield?

Another daft 2+2=65. Fallen off the treatment table rather than fallen out of favour.

To be fair to Everton they do not need Sean Davis at all. Manuel Fernandes is on the bench at the moment for them and he's class. I'd like Baros and Kapo would be great as he's a bit of a live wire.

Sean could go to Everton and warm the bench, good idea miles from home and not getting a game.

sean will not get in ahead of pedro, unless harry wants to be more defencive against man u, or pedro has a shocker against plymoth. he will stick to a winning siude, and unless mendes plays badley, he wont be replaced.

but in regards to the article...maybe if they had said mendes was going to be mooving, it would seem more likely?
