See Mccarthy started for Everton on sat could this put paid to us signing him in Jan, hope am wrong.

As much as I would love to sign him, I really can't see us meeting Everton's valuation of the player.

Think he only started because Gareth Barry was suspended! Barry and Gueye are definitely Koemans preferred midfield pairing.

Gueye is going to African Cup Of Nations in Jan/ Feb, can't see Everton letting McCarthy go in the next window.

Said from the start I don't think we could get near what they would want for him! And we'd struggle to match the wages! Would like to see it happen but think it's a non starter. heard we're supposed to be interested in Jordan Mutch, don't know if there's anything in that but!

Too much money for not enough return with McCarthy I feel. There must be better out there for the money it would take.

I just don't think he is the type that will lift us to another level and that shoukd be the goal. We have resources but they need to be used wisely. The cost with this signing I think is too much.

We would be paying for a Aston Martin and getting a Golf GTI.

{Ed007's Note - So how much would signing McCarthy cost?}

A lot more than he is worth. Of course it's all talk just now. It might be they would let him go for a couple of million. His wages would obviously fall but even if he takes a 50% cut then that's still £30k a week and he synth worth that.

He isn't a creative player. He isn't a good dribbler. Rarely makes world class defence cutting passes. He's a grafter, a good player and I wish him no ill, but for a combined outlay of £5-6m is a waste of money when a younger, more technically gifted player could be brought in for the same money.

I just think it would be a stand still signing.

{Ed007's Note - So basically you don't know what it'll cost? We've got loads of players on the books who aren't creative players, who can't dribble or make world class defence cutting passes - they're called defenders and defensive-midfielders - our current Club captain's one of them.}

Rogers is talking about a creative midfielder to take us forward.

That rules McCarthy out right there.

{Ed007's Note - So he's only got one target? OK then.}

I never said that. I said if his main target is a creative midfielder then that rules McCarthy out. And it does.

Where are you getting your info on this?

A mate if a mates da type if thing or a real source?

{Ed007's Note - When did Rodgers say that about the January window?}
