On this mate.It's hard to get high earning, underperforming players off the books.
Because they are high earning and underperforming.
Another post that picks 3 top players from the 3 top teams.
It doesn't apply to Everton. Those teams are packed with quality. We have 1 absolutely top quality player (James) and 3, maybe 4 very good players.
No point at all building a system around that one player who misses 40% of of our matches. When he does play we have a high chance of seeing the system fail because we have several players who can't do the basics right.
When you factor in his wage (200k per week according to todays Echo - who knows?) he's a luxury item that we can't fully enjoy because of those around him.
He'll leave, for pretty nominal fee but we're free of his wage drain.
Gutted I haven't seen him.
I know it is, but it's also Brands' job to do it.
