Whilst I agree this is hugely underwhelming it seems to me that the general consensus on this site is that we have a competitive starting 11 but no depth to the squad. I agree with this sentiment.
However, if a player like McCarthy has been told by Everton that he has NO future there and if Hodgson likes him enough to want him here then is it such a bad move for both parties?

You're saying it as if he were a free player, which would have made it a decent move.

But no. There were 8 million paid for this guy who hasn't played 2 matches in a row since 2017!

It's Wilf gone, only my opinion. If he goes will have lots of different options and sure Luka is going as well. Very depressing and hope I am completely wrong.

If Wilf is going youíd have thought this would be part of a swap deal rather than a separate transfer so Everton could use it as leverage. The fact this is a separate transfer suggests to me that we arenít selling Zaha. I might be wrong though.

If he gets and stays fit it will be a good buy - he's always looked competent if unspectacular - I've always seen him as a box-to-box midfielder more than in a holding role, and he was very highly rated as youngster at Hamilton, you may laugh but the general expectation up there was he was definitely going to be playing at top class level and be an international when he was 16, but as matteo rightly points out his fitness is a big if

Nobody's ever free are they? Sometimes there's no upfront fee to the "selling" club but then often the player/agent wants a fee and the wages are more. Perhaps this deal involves more upfront and less in wages? Who knows?!!
Regardless, my point is that it's dull, unambitious, slightly concerning, very Palace-like but maybe, just maybe not all bad...

Itís a shame that we are giving 8 million for someone, and I hope that he gets/stays injured so that Meyer isnít on the bench.

Why why why why why? We have little money, we have other positions to fill, and we're spending millions on another player so old he has no resale value and so crocked he might not actually play 10 games for us, in the one position we're actually well-stocked!

I really hope we actually have some money and we're getting a good striker and right back, because if we're as skint as we think and we're spunking 75k a week on Cahill and then McCarthy, it'll be moronic financial mismanagement even by our standards.

In spite of the fact that he was on loan all of last year, Bolasie has played way more than twice as much as McCarthy for Everton over past three seasons

BBC quoting £2.5m as the fee on their website. Same amount we paid for Ayew isnít it?
