I wonder when the Everton stuff actually started. I thought it really kicked in after the Everton game, but perhaps it was a bit before. We beat Arsenal but then collapsed against Chelsea and Everton with a loss to Stoke in between. We rallied against a poor West Ham before the wheels fell right off. As HB1 said in this thread and others have said, Gino had to turn down the money at that point, he had no-one else lined up and Silva may have come into line. With hindsight we should have grabbed the money.
