I'm glad he's no longer our problem to deal with.
I kept saying here that he's the kind of player who can't step up at a big club. Smaller clubs like Everton, Inter etc seems to suit him more.
It's odd, in theory he should get more chances and score more at big clubs but that's not the case. It's not him alone. There are other players who can't step up when playing in stronger teams. Cesc Fabregas is someone else that comes to mind.

Watching Hull v Everton and it's noticable how hard Hull are working. I've never really noticed a team working hard cos it's a prerequisite. But lethargic shite performances at United have been normalised, so it really stands out.

Also interesting to see Rafa trying to keep up with the times and play a pressing game. It's falling flat on his arse like it does at United. Everton are similar to us in that they've spent obscene amounts of money but are fundamentally shite.

It requires a high level of athleticism, which I think tends to favour younger players Sid.
