Besic was a decent buy at the price. What does amaze me though is that weíve known from the very beginning that he wasnít going to be good enough but still havenít managed to sell him on. We should have had no problem moving him for 5-10m yet heíll probably be going on a free
We seem very cowardly when it comes to making judgements on players. Same with the likes of dowell too. We wait and wait and lose any hope of getting anything for them
I'd agree on this. Without sounding too mercenary - we do hold on to players for too long.
Perhaps one of the things that enables us to buy players is that they know if they come to Everton they will get a decent contract time? I dunno. Speculation. Maybe it helps us in one way even as it hurts us in others.
If you play the stats game and remove all feelings - we could chuck in something like - after a second injury spell of more than 8 weeks, they should be looked at to be moved on - regardless of anything else. Just because players with big injuries always seem to pick up more, lose value and stutter out for us. Harsh, but practical.
