Everton have had a truly crapulous summer. Gazumped in pretty much all of their transfer targets, they hadn’t signed a single new player up until the final week of the transfer window. Now comes the news that one of the Toffees signings has knackered his elbow.
Toffeeweb – who reported that David Moyes was considering giving newbie Lars Jacobsen his debut – now tell us that he dislocated his shoulder playing for Denmark against Portugal.
David Moyes was considering giving new signing Lars Jacobsen his Premier League debut for Everton on Sunday at Stoke but that was before he apparently dislocated a shoulder playing for Denmark this evening and was taken to a Lisbon hospital. The Danes shocked Portugal in the World Cup qualifier with a last-minute goal to win 3-2. (Toffeeweb)
Everton have a tracing-paper-thin squad – so any injuries will hurt them, and losing a fresh new signing is only going to add to the mounting frustrations at Goodison Park.
