One thing no-one seems to have mentioned yet.
What the fans did in the last weeks of the season was nothing short of phenomenal. You should check out some of the videos of fans greeting the team bus coming to GP or leaving for an away match.
And atmosphere in the home matches seemed to something else.
Having taken a look at how the season has gone, I notice that all is not well at Everton. It looks much like the horror years of 90's, although it didn't go to the last game this time.
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.
