in recent years, we've had players like arteta and pienaar and osman who could run games for us, players like fellaini and cahill in the midfield, rooney (obviously), and baines storming down the wing was a joy to watch.
yes, jr's a lovely player to watch, and i'm gutted it didn't work out. and yes, his range of passing was great, but imagine if he'd actually put that talent to use and married it with even a fraction of the effort the likes of the straq put into his game or the commitment niasse showed to the club. but realistically, we didn't get enough out of him for me to feel sad about him going.
it's just peak everton that we sign a (former) galactico and never got to see him play in the flesh at goodison.
