2020/21 James Rodriguez

Not open for further replies.


Welcome to Barcelonaton FC
I'm not sure they really 'butted heads'.

Benitez's style at Madrid just didn't really suit James. But there was also Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Kroos, Modric etc all to fit into the side too.

And James still played a fair bit. Benitez was only there for what, six months.

We don't exactly have those wealth of options at Everton and in Benitez's preferred 4-2-3-1 (going off his time at Newcastle) then with actual wide players there's a spot for James in there.

Rafael ain't going to turn his nose up at the most talented player in the squad.

As many have said, James won't force a move and will happily stay. Unless his agent says he's found somewhere with sunnier a climate.

We're still paying him handsomely that a lot of other teams can't.


Player Valuation: £30m
Also think it's fair to say that he is defensively weak. But it's not that I don't want him in team.

But completely irreplaceable attacking wise
Yes we need a strategy to use when he doesnt play. Legs around him we can accommodate him. Pure class that we need

Sassy Colombian

Player Valuation: £70m
I’m a few hours away from hopefully watching Everton, and hopefully James too, win their first championship together.

James is definitely looking sizzling in these pics lol
