Royal Blue: Sam Matterface seems to have been at the Christmas sherry after Everton FC comments

SAM MATTERFACE is a respected sports broadcaster and a decent bloke, but his recent views on Everton are so skewed you'd think he'd been at the Christmas sherry since December 1.

Writing on his TalkSPORT blog about who the Blues should target in the January market, he says 'What a fantastic club Everton are. They have limited resources and squeeze every bit of talent out of their manager David Moyes, who has been brilliant for them.

'If he wants to stay, and kick this team on again, I think he should sell Maurouane Fellaini to the highest bidder in January and build the team around Jack Rodwell and Seamus Coleman.

'Fellaini is an imposing figure, a battler in midfield with a presence in both boxes but a few German teams have been sniffing around with talk of £15million bids.

'If that's the case, then buying or loaning a top striker is first priority and, if Chelsea are in the market for a forward, as it seems they are, what about Nicolas Anelka?

'He loves being top man and thrives on the ball being played in front of him. Failing that, what about trying to tempt Papiss Demba Cisse from Freiburg? He was linked with Fulham and is the second top scorer in Germany.'
