Haha, no-one comes to EFC for the paycheck!
I agree about the age of our team now though.
How many (very good) players are in the first half of their careers?
In our financial state we need players to have a sell on value, young players obviously carry that longer.
Pienaar, the Yak, Yobo, Arteta are only going to go down in value, realistically, so cashing in while they're at their peak value makes sense.
It may not be the quickest way of ensuring progress, but in 2 years time we should be in a healthier position financially and on the pitch.
