Steven Pienaar


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts



He's not a bad player...certainly capable depth. But our depth should primarily be English players, because we have to limit the number of foreign players we purchase.

Jay Boythroid it is then :-(

Wouldn't it be nice if this page was just for rumours that are heard/read & not for do you think we should sign so & so?

very true, just saw that spuds have reportedly offered 1.5 million for him, admittedly only on the rumours page on BBC sport, and thought he was worthy of a mention on here.

He isnt really what we would ordinarily look for, but at 3m I would take him for six months just to see what he can do. We need depth late in games and this is the kind of guy who would bring that

Mikel, Essien, Ramires, Zhirkov, Lampard.

Not one of them are a similar type of player. Pienaar would more of a very poor mans Robben. And since we have moved Zhirkov outside, Sturridge is seemingly our only guy who really plays like a pure winger.

I don't want Pienaar, even on a cheap.

That is, unless we want to become a mid table club with slightly above average players.

It reminds me of the time when we went after the likes of Sidwell,Ben Haim and Pizarro because they were free.

With so much emphasis seemingly on cutbacks and financial constraints, we're not exactly a million miles from there as it is.

Yup. People like Sidwell, Ben Haim and Pizzarro were brought in as third and foruth options in their positions. Did Sidwell even play a full game for us, ever?

That was a very different squad from what we have now. Hell, I would take some of Tottenham's rejects right now if it gave us a little depth.

We're linked.

I'm not fussed. He was one of Everton's best last season and he also can play as a right winger, which is exactly what I want to see. Add to that the fact that he is very cheap, and it means Spurs couldn't have him, and there are certainly positives about the transfer.

However, I do agree with those above he's not exactly one to get excited about, that said transfer policy can't always be about exciting the fans. It's about results and I think he would add something to the squad, even if he wasn't first choice.

don't think there's a place for him in our squad when benayoun returns they both play very similar roles only benayoun is better. So next season we'd be trying to find them both minutes. it's unlikely we'd sell either in the summer.

I'd rather us play the youth or actually sign someone who will part of the future as well. If that player isn't available we should either make a loan signing or just keep plugging away with what we already have. Then in the summer make the necessary changes.

He is better than all 3 of them & can play a position we are weak at. Not my 1st choice, but would be fine for the squad.

I just wonder if the club instead of buying players like pienaar,(a good PL player),are trying to go down the Barcelona route instead.They produce players to play a certain way with the youth team then,when ready,they fit straight into the first team without any period of settling in, like Ramires and Malouda for example.

Like Josh has, but Carlo doesn't trust him in premier league game (despite the fact Mikel & Essien have been letting him down week after week)

What does Jacob Mellis, a striker, have to do with Steven Pienaar, the midfielder?

And experience is something we clearly don't lack, if anything, we need to get younger. Pienaar at 28 isn't going to get any better than he already is, and at his best he's still not better what we've already got and is certainly not the kind of a player we should be targeting.

I agree.

I can't see Pienaar signing for us as he needs regular team football.

Now that he's South African captain I don't believe he'd enjoy sitting on the bench at the Bridge.

I won't be surprised if he ends up with Spurs!

Mellis is a midfielder but I agree with everything u said. We have signed players like this before to add depth to the squad and none have been worth it. jarosik, smertin,sidwell, Pizarro, ben haim.

i disagree with you , peinaar has two serious offers from Chelsea and Tottanham . you know it's no way plays as regular at Tottanham cause bale and lennon while chelsea could uses him as right winger beside he wants club rise his wage to 75 000 per weeks and be in champions league and he is available for cheap .

Update from Pienaar's agent:

The agent of Everton winger Steven Pienaar has remained coy on the future on his client refusing to comment on reports that the player has signed for Tottenham claiming there are no new developments regarding the player.

The Guardian reported this morning that Tottenham had beaten off competition from Chelsea and Atletico Madrid to land the winger, with the Norh London club agreeing a £70, 000 a week deal with the South African.

According to the report the Scum have yet to decide whether to try and push through a deal in the January transfer window for a fee in the region of £2 million, or wait until the summer to sign the South African on a Bosman free transfer.

Sport.co.uk contacted the player’s agent to clarify the player’s situation at the Toffees.

“I cannot make a comment on these reports because I have no news.†Ivan Modia told Sport.co.uk.

“I couldn’t make a comment because there is no news to report. We will wait and see.â€

When asked whether or not he could rule out the Toffees star leaving Goodison Park he replied:

“I cannot comment on that at this moment.â€.
