The Stones bit sounds unlikely, but that's not the worst of it. The worst of it is selling your supposed beloved, boyhood club that's looked after you and helped substantially to make you, down the frigging river.
Your agents are your representatives. Ross is an adult and presumably has full capacity. At any point he could've stepped in and said 'I want to stay at Everton, make that happen' but no. He's snuck out the back door, putting the club at a considerable loss. I've defended and loved the lad to the hilt for a long time but when it comes down to it he's treated us like shit.
