Rodriguez - training, but he himself doesnt think he is quite ready for the game
Simms - training having just returned from long injury, asked if fit for weekend - YES BOSS !
I'm not blaming Rodriguez completely
Hew was sold on joining Ancelotti, not Everton
Ancelotti ####ed off, and not only did that piss the board off, but also players
Benitez and Rodriguez dont get on too well it seems, and thats generally in life on both parties.
Both seem happy to part ways
The fact Rodriguez, at 30 has had since May to sort a new club and the main takers were a Turkish club and Qatar club, says a lot
1 - that we are paying him a lot
2 - other clubs dont see that cost as value
We all want to see boss skilful players, and he is right up there.
But maybe the negative aspects (cost, reliability, requirement of players around him), outweigh the positive at this time
