Marouane Fellaini has agreed a deal to join Besiktas at the end of the season. The Belgium international, 30, is out of contract at the end of the campaign and could leave on a free transfer,

would you have had him back? gives it 100%.

For free, yes I would.

He is good offensively at set pieces. He is good defensively and at set pieces. He is good with 10 mins to go when you are a goal down. Throw him forward as an annoyance to the opposition when you need to lump it forwards. Yes I would have him back.

And where do we play him? Instead of siggy? Rooney? Gana? He would be a super sub at best. He is going to beshiktaa for game time, why would he come to us to sit on the bench.

Good answer Smit mate.

16 Feb 2018 18:40:05
I'm not sure I'd have him back. However I wish him the best of luck. I've heard nothing but nice stories about him outside of football and he's a very humble and down to earth guy.

To answer Smit666's question about where I would play him. he could play instaed of Gana or Schneids for sure. All our midfielders will not remain uninjured all season for sure. So he could play in an offensive or defensive role at times. like I said in my original post. and yes he might have to be sub at times. But he would be great competition for places and give the squad something it currently lacks. Sigs corners and free kicks would certainly have someone to aim at which we don't currently seem to be doing. If we were hanging on to a 1 nil lead with 10 mins to go, he is great to put in alongside Gana. but to answer the original question again. yes I would have him back. Sorry if you don't agree. But I would.

Like you say Degsy put him on with 10 minutes to go. Sub at best. He's not a defensive mid so why would he take Gana or schneids place? Or are you thinking of not playing a defensive mid? He plays further forward so would take siggy or Davies place which he might have done 5 years ago but not now.

{Ed025's Note - maybe instead of building a new ground we should build a home for over the hill players, we could ask all the teams who have players who are past their sell by date to sign for us, we could get john o,shey and wes brown as our captain and vice captain and fellaini as our player manager, leave all them pesky kids in the U23 squad and go with experience...just a thought..

16 Feb 2018 22:41:55
With the money they earn Ed they can build there own bloomin Home for the over hill players, and those damn pesky kids can take out the bin bags. sigh . bliss.

17 Feb 2018 07:14:48
And get all the old players on the coaching staff to be the mentors for the Everton Last Payday XI what dya reckon Ed025?

{Ed025's Note - sounds good to me gray..

To answer another constructive question. Fellaini can play defensive mid very well. He did it for years with us. Just in front of the back 4. He does it with Utd and Belgium at times. Usually when they are hanging on to a lead with a few mins to go. He also has a few goals in him. 36 premier league goals so far. 16 international goals so far. But it is about opinions so there ya go. that's mine. Thumbs down time!

Degsy, he is not an out and out defensive mid, he has always been a box to box midfielder, he has never been disciplined enough to be a defensive mid.

It would just fallin with the recruitment mentality this season, ooh he used to be good so let's buy him, where does he play? Err. I don't know but, he'll fit in somewhere.
If he wanted to sit on the bench and come on as sub surely he would be better staying at united than coming to us. He would just be another waste of money.
