'If It's Football, It's Vital'

What to make of Fellaini no show?

Marouane Fellaini cancelled his scheduled signing appearance at the last minute on Monday.

The Belgian International had been set for an autograph session with supporters at the club`s megastore.

The event was only scheduled to last an hour, but at 2pm the club announced the 5pm event was off.

The British media believe this could be an indication to his mindset and more evidence towards his possible departure at the end of the season.

Others just see a player avoiding a situation where he was going to get a bit of stick following a poor performance against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup.

Reports suggest he'd already been subjected to abuse as he left the stadium on Saturday, so hardly surprising he'd want to avoid a repeat of that.

Fellaini apologised to supporters via Twitter: "Sorry to the Everton fans, I cannot make the signing session this afternoon. Will do another one soon"

Everton have not treated the cancellation as a breach of club discipline.

is he really that good? Looks to me like an effective bruiser, but you obviously watch him week in week out and would know better. How high could he go?

Dan is right, the lad is seriously talented, people like yourselves will look at his physical appearance and immediately label him a bruiser, and yes he uses his physicality, but technically Fellaini is very good, very under-rated. I think he can go on to play for the elite CL clubs, because in Fellaini you have a player that can dominate a game both defensively and attacking, and that is very rare in a player these days. The only thing holding him back is exactly what happened on Saturday, if things don't go his way, he effectively sulks, his attitude is very poor and after Saturday I am resigned to losing him, however, I don't think it will be as big as a blow as I would of thought at the start of the season. Take the money, and bring in 3 or 4 quality players to add to the squad.
