Just replacing Mina with someone who can play most matches & a competent #6 would go a long way.
We ended the season pretty well. 3 wins & a draw from last six. I'm also convinced that if VAR & PL hadn't screwed us with Allan's ban we wouldn't have lost at Burnley. After all, we won Newcastle, lost the three matches he was out and from the remaning nine won 4, drew 2and lost three (one being yesterday's dead rubber).
We shall see if Moshiri & BK again try to meddle with team building. At least Lampard & Thelwell seem to get along.
... but I fear for next season. Frank has a massive job on with this unbalanced squad with too many overpaid under-performers. Flogging the few decent players we have/can to be able to bring in new blood is fraught with risk.
Still [reverts to blind optimism] small margins and all that. Look what happened when we flogged Rooney.
Welcome back btw... 😊
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.
