Re: Stones as well. Keegan also came straight from S####horpe into Liverpool's first team, fantastic buy
In Keegan's time that was still possible. Stones however needed much longer to establish himself. Pointon slotted into Van Den Hauwe's spot within weeks and didn't look too much out of place - at the time when Everton were arguably the best team in Europe.
tbf Branthwaite has done just that.
Funny that in 1985 we could still go and buy a player from Scnuthorpe United (Pointon) for a reasonably low price, and he could step in pretty quickly and do a decent if unspectacular job on the highest level.
