The BBC reports that Stubbs, Pistone, and Watson are all leaving Goodison after declining to sign 1-yr contracts: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/teams/e/everton/4641391.stm I know we're bringing in some good new players, but still, it makes me a little uneasy to see so much of last season's defense leave. Will any of the newcomers play as well for us as Alan Stubbs has? Perhaps, but I wouldn't count on it. Yobo, for instance, came to us with impressive credentials, but has only had moderate success here. To me, this wholesale change of the defense is an unnecessarily risky move. I guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope Moyes knows what he's doing.
