What next? Victor Anichebe being sold to Barcelona and becoming a Ballon D'or winner?
There is some sort of voodoo hex in the air at Goodison Park which seems to strip goalscorers of their abilities like Sansom without his hair.
First there was Yakubu- who was unable to influence games at the end at Everton, who since being flogged to Blackburn scored 13 times in 16 games.
Now Louis Saha, one of the worst strikers in the Premier League this season on current form turned in a stunning two goal performance on his home debut for Tottenham.
They are not the only proven goalscorers to hit the buffers at Goodison in recent seasons, look at Jermaine Beckford and Andy Johnson.
Which begs the question, is it a coincidence, or is there something in manager David Moyes' approach which prevents him getting the best from his frontmen?
One of the assets about Moyes' side is their organisation and will to win, yet this often manifests itself in a negative approach.
When was the last time Everton scored four times in a match?
A lack of a decent playmaker or winger has been detrimental to the team's strikers, look at the effect Landon Donovan has had since arriving, the side will miss him when he returns to LA.
The recent performances of Denis Stracquarlarsi will give reason for encouragement.
He could become a cult hero at Goodison, and will hope to give the club reason to sign him permanently.
New signing Nikica Jelavic too has the potential to be a real asset to the club, or an expensive failure.
Everton fans will be hoping its the former, because if he fails at the club, judging by this season's events- he will be guaranteed to score a hatful at his next club.
