Player Valuation: £500k
I think this is a good time to create a thread like this. Halfway into the season and some people endorse DCL starting, some want Beto. What do you think is the best option?

DCL was a development signing for 1.5m. He’s given a good service to Everton.
The hate he gets is poor. Sure he’s not doing well, but he offers the team something. His remit is goals, and that’s what he should be judged on - he’s in poor form and not offering goals, he does however understand the tactics dyche wants.
Beto on the other hand is a 30m signing who can’t kick a ball, head a ball, pass a ball, press, stay onside…
What I find most worrying is how tired Beto looks after his 10/15 minute cameos.
It’s not his fault he’s been signed for 30m I get that, but watching him you could have signed virtually any championship striker and they’d likely have offered more.
This is the issue for me. There’s no service for the strikers. Admittedly yesterday we were against city but far too often in the game DCL was on the halfway line picking up the ball. He’s never gonna score from there. Carlo had it right, stick him in the box and get service to him.We could have Haalland up front for us, but whilst you have McNeil & Harrison playing even he wouldn't score
