Royal Blue: James Rodriguez exit assessed as Everton squad stretched already

The Royal Blue Podcast returns to assess the potential exit of James Rodriguez to Qatar and the Premier League defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday. Sam Carroll is joined by guests Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland as they also talk through the Carabao Cup trip to Queens Park Rangers. Gavin believes Everton were put in a difficult position by Carlo Ancelotti and Rodriguez while Dave insists the parting of the ways seems to be mutual between the Colombian and Rafa Benitez. There is also time to discuss The Boys from the Blue Stuff - a new book by Gavin set to be released at the end of September with a glowing reference from fellow author Dave.
