If that’s the case the bad job started with their profiling before investing the high picks in them. They wouldn’t have turned into mummy’s boys in the 2 years at the club. Was a heap of talent taken after them so plenty of other options who weren’t midfielders.To be fair both were played. Club couldn’t do much more than give them a ridiculous offer.
They were home sick mummy’s boys nothing more.
I’d heard that Caldwell is a ripping bloke, but got frustrated by the lack of opportunity and explanation for missing out after fighting through injuries.
You’re probably right that the crazy money would have got him even if he’d played every game.
