They do. You can't really make an argument that this was 75m well spent.

my bad misread it, i thought he said they was cheap

Sigurdsson is looking better of late but not 45m worth and Keane is woeful at best, we have spent totally shite really of late when you think how good and cheap the likes of arteta and Cahill were even by the prices back then
That is the most stupid of arguments ,the price has nothing to do with a players value to the team ,we don't pay it .On your theme then everyone should cost the same as Seamus or they are not worth it .I am not defending Keane but there is a player in there -no matter the cost and Siggy has settled a bit and will be a good signing -no matter the cost
Climbing every mountain begins with the first step -a shame I was just going to the shop

If Keane sticks around he will be the best defender at our club for years and it's captain.
He'll be an England captain wherever he goes.

The lad is one of th emost natural defenders in the English game.
He has, however, been given a shitshow of a surrounding.
Having to keep an eye on Kenny, Martina and Holgate as a 'senior' at a time when he still needs shepherding himself.
Sitting beind a porous midfield that has taken a long time to even look like it gives a shit.
Nobody in world football is sitting at centre half for Everton and looking competent this season.

I agree re: Keane. He has suffered from quite a bad injury and a constantly rotating backline.

He has talked about his loss of confidence, but he will come good. The optimist in me wishes the same for Klaassen.

If we had a fully fit squad, we could go with:

Pickford

Coleman
Jagielka/Holgate
Keane
Baines

Gueye
Klaassen/Davies
Rooney/Sigurdsson

Walcott
Tosun
Niasse/Bolasie

There is plenty enough talent there to get us through this season, then we really need to stop arsing about and sign another Left Back, another 2 CBs allowing Williams to leave and maybe look at bringing in a proper box to box midfielder to put into the mix.

We are not going to go down now, so it is time to stop this 'avoid relegation' bullshit. Now is the time to get the best team we can out and keep them out as long as possible. Chopping and changing week in, week out is not going to help.

Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Sigurdsson is starting to look an okay buy. Partly because his form has improved and partly because the market has increased again since we signed him

Keane at 30m looks a horrible signing and I'm surprised at anyone arguing against that. He's been rubbish. 30m in the last year of his contract too. Crazy times

Could still prove to be a good signing though.
