What is it that makes Everton – in many aspects a huge enterprise with very good and loyal worldwide following – such shambles of a football club? Why is this whole saga yet again turning into another Apotheosis of Underachievement?
I was extremely suspicious towards the Benitez recruiting, and was certain that he wouldn't last more than 16-18 months at max, but he overdid even that. Then why did we take Lampard as the new manager? Were there any signs that pointed out him being good enough? I doubt it. Why not go for DF?
To have six managers in six years tells the whole story. Obviously Moshiri doesn't have a clue.
A new season will always bring new hope, and football fans are often blind in their optimism, but I have a feeling that it can go from bad to worse, unless there's some stroke of luck.
To have ended the season in relegation would have been a terrible blow, as the gone year has been such a success to myself. Luckily there's some breathing space for another year.
