It may be harsh, and it may not be his fault that his agent fleeced Red Bull, but a guy making $300k has to be fighting for a starting spot at the very least. In a salary capped league, that's too much to spend on a guy who can't even win the super sub role.

At least we got him on a free, after watching him trial with us for over a month... wasn't it a $2M xfer fee for Matty Ice, sight unseen?

That is correct and I got a good chuckle out of "Matty Ice".

Where are folks on trading away vs investing minutes in Etienne's talent today?

Depends on the value coming back in return. They should be investing minutes in him regardless. To build his value, help further improve his game, and reap the rewards of his potential production on the pitch (i.e. last night). I'm an Etienne advocate, but if they got nice value in return at a position of need, I'd be on board.

Thing is, dynamic playmaker at RW is a position of need. He's the best equipped player to lock down the spot. Wish he'd get 3 starts in a row so he can relax and not play tight.
