and most likely will leave us for bigger clubs in the future.
...and if they do attract the even bigger clubs, it will because they are performing well at Everton and if sold, it will be for a very tidy profit.

indeed thats what i was eluding too, unlike Williams who we bought when he was on the downhill... but it was in regards to Brownie20's post regarding Williams and snobbery... the big difference is, these players are younger and will improve as they get older, while when you buy a 30 + year old., its very unlikely they will peak with you or even get better.

just cost Distin did it, (who always took care of his fitness) unlike someone who looks like he should be a boxing trainer.
I was actually reasonably happy when we signed Williams. At the time, it seemed like a decent signing. Centre halves do tend to peak a little later than other outfield players, so it was reasonable to assume that we were bringing in a player who would be right in his prime and we would get 3 years of him being solid at the back. We definitely got burned though and he looks fucking shot.
