When are people going to grasp the reality of modern day football? Players move on season on season, no conspiracy, lack of ambitions by their club or any other reasonings.
Everton do not have to sell a single player for financial reason. Understand and accept that. Baines and Fellaini will look to further their personal and professional ambition. Again its not about money. They are millionaires already. Its about trophies and success nothing more or less.
I am bored of the narrow-mindedness of football fans in particular at my own Everton who have this ridiculous 'betrayed us' whenever a player leaves. Alongside this rune the 'DM and BK' have to secure such a player. No they dont, players move on and the money's the club generates means that the club continues.
This does not make Everton a selling club or a club with no ambition, its all just part of the plan. Utd have sold players such as Ronaldo, Beckham, Keane, Ince, Stam etc etc..are they a selling club?? They have probably sold 2 full teams of full top class internantionals.
As for Pienaar, yeah he made an impact, but I will bet you a pound to a penny if a bigger offer comes in from another club to Spurs or Pienaar himself then thats where he will go.
As for big Summers and expectations. Well done to the club for last season. The nature of the game means that we are no longer big players in it. Deal with it.
