    Anyone who thinks it's worth spending £45m on Fellaini and Baines must be stupid.

    Would you rather not wait until January/Next summer and spend that £45m on a world-class CM?

    £36m is the right amount for the pair.

    Moyes is setting it up for a bid on Deadline Day that Everton can't refuse, I reckon.
    he should just get fellaini tbh, I really don't get the need for baines.

    Baines does seem like the kind of guy that could go on for a long time, and from what I've heard, Moyes rates Baines extremely high. Feels like Moyes is looking for a bargain on the pair, otherwise he would have at least set off Fellaini's £23m buy-out clause before pre-season.

    Big month in November, we have Arsenal home and Tottenham away after two away champions league games. Happy to see the group, could have been worse, like Arsenal's hahah hoping this somehow forces Moyes to sign somebody instead of getting an easy group, we will need to play well to top the group.

    I think Moyes has around £80m to spend but i would rather he didn't buy, than just panic buy.

    I think we will probably get Baines/Fellaini before the deadline, but I can't see us bringing anyone else in right now, I would be fairly happy with that though.

    Yeah I've heard that too but if there's any substance to that story is yet to be seen. Andy Mitten on Twitter has said he's been in contact with his agent but to read the article you have to subscribe. Which is annoying since he's quite reliable.

    I don't believe that. Herrera is nothing special at all, wouldn't expect to pay anything more than 10-15 for him, so United bidding as much as they bid for Fabregas seems unlikely.

    I just want the window to close now, all we're being linked to are bad deals.

    Apparently Buttner is joining Besiktas on loan http://www.turkish-football.com/news_read.php?id=5096

    EDIT:

    Seems the Bilbao president has just confirmed we've bid a whopping €30m for Herrera... Said he wants us to pay the full clause.

    Woodward apparently spotted at an airport according to Twitter.

    Some people will see Herrera as a panic buy but I think he looks pretty decent. He played well when we played Bilbao a couple of years ago and he is only 24

    To be honest in the current market paying around the £30 million to acquire him isn't such a bad deal especially as we really need someone who can play the defensive midfielder role. But if we're gonna go all out to buy him then why bid for Fellaini? Doesn't make any sense. We've got Rooney and Kagawa fighting for the attacking midfielders/behind the striker position. So where will Fellaini exactly play? The only reason I thought we're going for Fellaini was that Moyes might play him as a DM but that doesn't seem to be the case if we're after Hererra now.

    Herrera isn't a DM, and he's not really a CM. He generally plays quite far forward in the midfield, sort of inbetween where you'd find Cleverley and Kagawa. I'd class him as an AM. He can and has played further back, though. But that's another million pound midfielder we're going to play out of position/bench. I don't get it.

    But do we really need a AM right now? Fellaini presumably will play the DM role and Herrera in front of him. It doesn't quite make sense though, Kagawa and Rooney will have to play out wide which I'm not convinced about. I rather we don't go for this guy in that case.

    Sky sports saying we are closer to the Fellaini deal which may mean we have given up on Baines.
