Yeah, don't really need to read that like, no interested in the slightest. I did however listed to 5 live briefly yesterday, Melissa Reddy (no idea who she is) was asked about her opinion on Everton and Zaha, she stated that Zaha is far to big a player for us and went on about top 6 etc.. It wasn't until later on that i discovered she's a red and does various blogs for the anfield rap.

Angered me more than it should of to be honest

Balls.ie sounds like the name of a K-Pop band.

We're not liked by most of the media which is fine, we're used to it, but their bias towards the sky 6 is ridiculous, it really is.

If there was anything about this as a strategy and other ways of catching up for teams outside the CL places - it would be interesting.

If there was any context or comparisons with other teams or other leagues - it would be interesting.

Unfortunately, this just seems to be a very amateur stab at "Success or Fail" for some of our signings in recent years. Nothing to learn here but one individual's rather dull opinion.

Clickbait for advertising revenue. Nothing more. These are my thoughts.

I don't think 'balls.ie' is particularly worth a critical analysis @SANA_DR0

Wasn't looking for critical analysis, just peoples views/thoughts on whats being stated in the article.

Right, I've had a read and I'll give you some general thoughts from my perspective.

- The headline is pejorative towards us, and seemingly misleading in relation to the content, which is relatively balanced.
- It's difficult to detect an underlying viewpoint in the article. It deems some of the signings as successes and some as failures, in a fairly pragmatic way.
- It basically says nothing of any interest, and there's very little insight.
- I clicked on the author to see if I could discern a trend/perspective in other articles he's written, and all I could really come up with is that he's an Irish football fan, and thus relatively likely to be a Liverpool/Utd fan, so perhaps coming slightly from that perspective.

I get the context of your question SANDRO.....ie: do we agree with the principle of the article.

Myself I don't agree with the principle of the article.....as my thoughts are... aren't all transfers "rejects" of some sort whether from a "big club" a "top 6 club" or even a lower league club to some extent when sold to another lower league club

Would he be asking the same question of say lpool arsenal or manu if they had bought Coutinho? or just if we'd of bought him?

likewise would he be asking the same question of any club who buy everton players?

so all in all a bit of a meaningless statement to make in a bit of a meaningless article in my opinion...

Really gone off 5Live recently. Their football chat show is too ‘down with the kids, innit fam?’ now. No substance to it at all

cheers Dylan,

My view is that there is only a finite amount of players in the league, who can perform at a certain level. Undoubtedly some of those players would have not succeeded at a 'top 6' club, they're a pretty good option for teams wanting to bridge that gap. Maybe the players experience in the top was not right for them, ie age, style of play, not mature enough, not played enough or played in the wrong position.

Every club has players who have dropped down from a higher team.
