BREAKING: Liverpool have agreed a £13.75M deal for Xherdan Shaqiri! He is due a medical today.

When one of our best players is joining Championship side Stoke City, we have to ask ourselves if we are not regressing. I for one actually believe Etebo could cut it at Liverpool. I for instance do not see in what way Jordan Henderson is a better midfielder than him.

Matters arising guys. What do we do about this?

Etebo knows exactly what he is doing. In Stokes, he is guaranteed playing time. If he shines, he wont stay in the Championship side for long.

Sometimes you have to take a step backwards to move forward.

You’re right as usual. He should actually be replacing iniesta at Barca. :thumb:

If our best players need to go to the Championship to secure guaranteed playing time, we have a huge problem. Are we really that low on talent?

Etebo is moving from a loan to relegated Las Palmas to Stokes. This is an upgrade for him. I think he should have waited till after the WC to move, but then again I can see why he made the deal before the WC given he wasn't really in Rohr's plan till a couple of weeks before the WC squad list deadline.

BTW, when are you going to move from CE contributing editor to the big leagues. It's been 15 years and that could be considered more stagnant and retrogressing than Etebo's move to stokes.

I think you've again missed the lesson from this World Cup. A cursory look at the teams that made the last 8 reveals these were TEAMS where no real individual shone out. The ethos of football is again moving towards the team being the core of achievement, not an individual(s) within the team.

What we need more than ever going forward are opportunities for the players to get together, know themselves, play many games together and play a standard and consistent style and formation. So, if a talented player is seeing regular action and can bring that form in that league to the team effort of the National Team, then it's all good in my humble submission.

Every pundit worth his salt has repeatedly spoken about team ethos as being the big revelation about this World Cup. Why should we plow a different route?

Saw this a few days back, good bit of business by Liverpool. Shaqiri is a bit hit and miss, but in this mad market, premier league experience, international grade, at the peak age for 13 million is a fine purchase. Good cover for the wide areas.

The standard of football in the Championship is quite high for a second tier. Wolves were a joy to watch last season and Jokanovic’s Fulham were swashbuckling. Ayo, your argument is based entirely on name with no substance, within said Championship, Etebo will play in some stadium steeped in history, Elland Road, Hillsborough, the Hawthorns, Villa Park...how many premier league teams on the continent can compete with such names, given the importance name is afforded? Notts Foret, QPR, Millwall, the City Ground, Loftus Road, the Den. As far as competition Is concerned, the championship is the most competitive league in Europe and with Stoke’s future hinging on a swift return, it’ll be an environment fraught with high expectation.

Etebo is an average player at best. I don't know why people get carried away with players that hustle but have limited skills and intelligence. For me, Etebo is no different from Ighalo- they are not good enough for SE. Rohr should have used Iwobi instead of Etebo in our last two world cup matches, but then, what do I know...

That is progress for most of the people on CE
There is an old thread where Cybereaglalites were praising this backward movement

anyhow, the market does not see Etebo the same way u guys view him
He's a lightweight

:D Its not as simple as you make it out to be. Etebo has talent but he still has a lot to prove before he will be trusted with higher responsabilities. This move to Stokes gives him that opportunity. Its not a bad move (it can even be considered a wise transition into English football).

Lets revive this thread in 6months/1 year and we can see is right.

Moving from a lowly rated Portuguese side to one of the better Championship sides that should be challenging for promotion is progress. He can use this move to Stoke as a stepping stone.

It's not as black and white as you make it sound. Not every African player is able to go from Africa right to a top team, some have had to work their way up to the top teams. Examples are Michael Essien, Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure, Mo Salah, and Sadio Mane.

It would have been progress if he did not play for SE

Las Palmas is a Spanish side, not Portuguese.
Etebo has bonafide La Liga experience under his belt.

Charlie,

He is correct. Is Feirense not a Portuguese club? Entebbe moved to Las Palmas on loan only, I believe, from Feirense and is now moving from Feirense to Stoke. Just my tuppence.
