If that 150k can go towards some badly needed quality then frankly Id drive him there.

Good luck!

Yeah agree, hes still a big profile.

Is 150k that bad when Klasseen and Sandro are both on 100k per week, one is leading goalscorer, huge name in the game, the others have done nothing yet Bill has alluded to the fact they'll both be back to give it another go!

I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Yeah but, they’re both young enough to have potential upsides and futures in the game.

Wayne was collared for drink driving some big pair of tits around Cheshire.

Just get rid he’s a tit

Edit: this is what my argument has devolved to so quickly

Im not against the move but think we could be doing a typical Everton thing and chucking the baby out with the bath water, if the rumours are true Rooney is off, Baines is off, I suspect Jags wont be too far behind, who will be the leaders in the club, the people that have a real affinity with the club during this transition? We've only really got Coleman left, but then again maybe if Wayne is a bit disruptive when not playing its best for all parties if he goes?

Would we really get a 12m transfer fee?

As I said many pages back, "American hero" Timmy Howard set the transfer fee record at the time, and was around $500K (in Ameri-quid).  No way in hell is there 24 times that (plus the conversion to Brexit Bucks) for what's left of Rooney.

$12M is the size of the overall deal being paid to Rooney, and we are almost surely paying part of the leftover contract here to get him to take the DC deal.  Because we signed a whopper of an emotional, Kenwright dream diary contract.

Rooney would be an excellent "super sub" if he'd be excited to play such a role, be ok with not coming into the match when circumstances don't warrant, and to be 100% clear he has to play within the system and not just do whatever he pleases.

He still has something left, and still has great desire.  But if he just wants to freelance and put on a show of his skills, then MLS is where he needs to be.

And I worry that the running him into the ground last season already took too much out of his legs, and it might be too late to get that great "super sub" year out of him.  We could have had two full seasons of it with a proper manager here from the start, but it was not to be.

My thinking has always been his legs are less an issue when he comes in fresh against more tired opponents.  Plus he would have the benefit of having watched 60-70 minutes from the sidelines before being inserted where he fits best that match.  Tactical deployment.

We need to make sure we actually replace his passing ability.

He still seemed like the only one who you thought could play a killer pass or unlock a stubborn defence (not that it happened often).

Sig can do it with his shooting but I'm not sure his passing is of the same standard.

At times this year his passing was nowhere near his usual standard. Whether that was because he was becoming more tired, players not on his wavelength or something else, who knows?

He's a very good squad option but I think we all know he's not ready to settle for that
