Playing devils advocate, we don't know for certain who targeted which players.
The you've got:
Vlasic (Only after he played against us)
And all the kids signed(Inc DCL)
You've potentially got 2 managers buying *their* players with *their* system in mind, and then glorified scout Walsh bringing in potential who neither manager really wanted to gamble on.
The players that *look* like Walsh signings have either done well for us, or despite being under utilised have either gone to or were wanted by better teams than us this year. Allardyce's comments before Tosun arrived about him not being sure about him sort of set up the current situation - it does SA no good if a player he didnt really want comes in and tears the league up as it questions his judgement.
Walsh probably is a decent scout, but that doesnt justify his role at Everton. He doesnt come across as someone you'd look to as an authorititive figure, and if he's getting over-ruled or even walked over by whoever our *manager* is then he needs to be shown the door.
