Arteta is Everton's best player and he's a fantastic player. Cahill is also a good midfielder.piazza said:So is it a coincidence that England played poorly in those games? Israel<Fulham. The gap between the 4 best teams and the next 16 is so huge that, that statistic is meaningless. Who's the best person on Everton? Yakubu? Does that make him world class because he's the best player on the 5th place team in England?
The gap between the top four and the top 7 isnt that wide. Spurs, Everton and Villa could contest the top four. Lets not forget, Everton 2 seasons ago finished ahead of Liverpool (who won the CL and finished 5th).
The fact of the matter is, if Barry was just average, why would Liverpool want him? If Barry was just average why would Villa put a huge price tag on him?
