Keep him, he's been an excellent addition to the squad

Madness to let him go. I donít think we will.

£4m profit on a player in a season isn't bad though. Especially if it allows us to get a replacement in that is more effective going forward.

The main thing I'd miss about him is him being a banker for a yellow card in a bet builder.

Opens 365, Palace Vs anyone, betbuilder, player to be carded, Milivojevic, McCarthy. 6/1. Lump.

I would agree, rather let McArthur go at 32 years old his legs are going, rarely plays 90 minutes.

Profit?? I thought we paid £8 million for him, maths is not my strong point, but I make that a 3 million loss!!

Nowhere near £8m think it was about £900,000

I think this should go in the ĎI donít know what Iím talking about threadí because having googled it to set my memory straight, Iíve read everything from undisclosed fee to 2.97 million through to 8 million

Sell him, although he is very good at pointing

He's been a decent squad player but nothing more. At 3m seems like we did good business, but I wouldn't be hugely upset if we sold him on at a profit and I certainly wouldn't miss his floaty set-pieces. We might see more of Jairo too. I'd miss McArthur more, despite his age, who I think was an outside bet for the POTY.

I'm pretty sure the £8m fee was on a load of Everton fan websites but it was much lower around the £1m mark.

Just checked on The Athletic and this was by Dom Fifield who is pretty close to the club:


Cahill may command a competitive wage on a two-year deal but he was a free agent after six-and-a-half glittering seasons at Chelsea. McCarthy, once the second-most expensive signing in Evertonís history, would cost less than £1 million. There was little risk involved in bringing them in and Hodgson, while still expectant over the addition of a right-back and striker, would be appeased by their arrival.

I've got to say that I have not really been impressed by McCarthy. We were chasing him for a few seasons as far as I know, but I don't really know why. Perhaps the nasty injuries he sustained whilst at Everton had an affect on him, but he seems to lunge in too early on a tackle, slightly recklessly. His yellow card count rivals Milovojevic. Perhaps we have been playing him out of position in that defensive to mid midfielder role? Sorry but I won't be crying my eyes out if he goes to villa for 5m.
