For him it has, yes

Mad the way we put 27mil down on bolasie when 5mil more would've got Zaha

Jesus.

I think he wouldíve resisted our overtures, though, just like most really good players.

Utterly shit recruitment for years now, though, not since our Deulofeu (potentially) Lukaku, Stones, Barry period have we got real quality and potential in.

The intensity issue is the key.

Being thrown on for cameo sub appearances, with an ďexpress yourself remitĒ etc isnít the same pressure as having responsibility for starting games where mistakes even early on in a game may cost you.

Heís been starting more games recently so thatís good.

And Iíve no problem with players looking out for themselves but lots of people do. Heís just got an easy ride because most people donít like Allardyce otherwise I think he would have been panned for going against club wishes.

Yes, this is all true.

However, you would imagine that one of the reasons he forced a move for himself was because he didnít want to Ďworkí with Allardyce rather than any contempt he has for Everton.

It was obvious he was a player anyway, and Iím hoping that Allardyceís unwillingness to play him, dismissiveness towards his loan move to RB, and ambivalence towards a future transfer could be the things that hang him

I still think McCarthy is a really effective player when near to full fitness, which I know is never, but when his hamstrings arenít threatening to snap he harries as well as anyone and is tidy in possession.

Unfortunately he never is fit is he

No, very very rarely, and then he only lasts for about 45 minutes before breaking down again it seems

I agree with two ballers next to him, with his job being to pass 5 yard balls to them. Question of mentality though when more is asked of him.

Yeah, he was great with Barry in that first season, particularly in his pressing and in the cover he provided Coleman when he was marauding forward.

His game was built on energy, and once his energy was compromised by being on a constant injury cycle he became a bit of a bottler as well.
