Gareth Barry did a great job for us, so 29 isn't that old these days and players are athletes and can last longer now.
Gaye was about 26 wasn't he? Left when he was 29. Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums
And only cost £7m
Bit of a blanket statement for a more technical question. Some players have a higher level of athleticism than others, but some players game is less effected by age. Allen seems to be a player that is somewhere in the middle. He's a great athlete, and although his game isn't based on explosively and pace (key abilities of players who fade quicker) his game is being an engine, with the agility to get up and down to disrupt the play. He's not like Pirlo who could sit back and let the game come to him. So I think it's really anyone's guess how long his legs hold up. It will depend on how he looks after himself and his ability to adapt.
You read about this transfer and you see 'Napoli want to replace Allan with x, y or z' and you think....maybe we should be going for the same x, y or z and not getting the player Napoli want rid of.Maybe that's just me.
But maybe Allan doesn't suit the formation Gatuso wants to play and wants a player to fit his formation, just like Carlo wants Allan as he knows he works in a formation he likes!?Sent from my CLT-L09 using NSNO Everton Forums mobile app
This is true. And he does look a really good player who would definitely improve us immediately.Just wish we were a bit ahead of the game at times, and thinking more like RB Leipzig and those sorts of clubs.
Look over the park at Milner to see what's possible if you look after yourself, still got a great engine at 34
