Will Laws Be Victor-ious?

Will Laws Be Victor-ious?

Our old adversary Neil Warnock and Crystal Palace appear to be heading the race to sign Hammers youngster Freddie Sears - attention turns to Everton's Victor Anichebe.

Whilst the possibility of Sears coming to Hillsborough may not be completely dead in the water (though it is said he wants to remain in London), Brian Laws is reputed to also be interested in a season long loan of the Toffees' Nigerian international.

21 year old Anichebe was out of action early last season with a knee injury which required surgery. That was only his ninth start for Everton: the lack of opportunity in the starting lineup led to a confrontational situation with David Moyes, and the Everton boss could take the opportunity of a loan period to bring Anichebe up to full match fitness before returning him to first team action at Goodison Park.

But the Owl have firepower aplenty in Tudgay, Clarke, Jeffers and Sodje.. is Laws pursuit of a further addition to the strike force due to continuing problems with Akpo Sodje's injury rehabilitation? Or a sensible reinforcement of Wednesday's attacking positions?

Even allowing for journalistic license it is stretching the truth to use the words Jeffers and firepower aplenty in the same sentence!

i'm sorry but jeffers has had plenty of chances to prove his worth over the years and he hasn't. Injuries and a decline in form are a recipe for disaster. Just ask that little chap Michael who plays for the geordies. Anichebe on loan would be an excellent move

rumour has it that everton are going to offer anichebe and rodwell + 3.5m as part of the naughton deal so can't see you getting anichebe + his wages would be far far too much for you skint lot to pay anyway.

Do we really want Anichebe? We already have one Everton reject & he couldn’t hit a pigs arse with a stick (sorry pfl! I like the fairy tale by the way) we need a proven goal scorer I would prefer Jermaine Beckford from that place up the road that I forget the name of.
