But you don't know how much we're paying for him? It could be an absolute pittance compared to how much Everton are paying him. Also, didn't people say he'd been playing for Everton's reserve team? So he should at least be fit. Certainly fitter than Watmore was when he came in and that's made a minimal difference in the impact he made when he joined. Did you write Watmore off too when he came in?
I want every player who pulls on the red shirt to succeed. 100%. However this guy I really do have an issue with. For a club on its knees financially I think he is a major risk and using up valuable resources - money.
As said I will hold my hand up however with Warnock already advising not to expect much I fail to see how a threadbare squad is enhanced by a player not up to speed. That would be the same whoever the player in question is.
ouch sharp barbs there...
That was just one example of many from the last few games and if you say that's the case then perhaps it was but there were other players ahead of him at that point when he moved the ball onto Bola and he didnt have to continue on that run over to the left hand wing but either way he lost the ball and was horrendously out of position which is a recurring theme with him.
But I probably havent been paying attention.
Yes Howson makes mistakes but he also does some really good stuff throughout the game so that's why he doesn't get criticised imo, whereas someone like Spence is sh*te for the whole 90minutes and offers nothing offensively or defensively.
