Just look at how bad their defence has been.As mentioned before when it comes to Everton players, it's almost irrelevant how they've gotten on at Everton in recent years as it has become such a graveyard for players careers.
The way so many good players careers have gone to shit at that club is so abnormal, that I can't help but conclude that it is a club problem rather than a player problem (or even a manager problem; a world class manager like Ancelotti wasn't able to do much there).
I'd back Steve Cooper to get more out of any player we sign from that club than Everton currently do. There's something very rotten at that club that goes far deeper than the players and manager (as shit as Lampard is).
At almost any other club, Tarkowski and Coady would be a rock solid defence.Just look at how bad their defence has been.
They have Tarkowski & Coady! That sums up them as a club mate. Those two were the best defenders for two of the best defensive sides for years. Yet at Everton they both turn into Prime Titus Bramble.
Everton's incompetence will be somebody elses gain.
I'm familiar with his name but otherwise I know nothing about the lad, and even if I did I'd accept the judgement of the people who are paid to know everything about him - Cooper, Giraldi, Murphy. That's not to say that the professionals are always right, obviously, because we've signed plenty of duds over the years.Would you have him?
