Some Everton fans have been left fuming as the arrival of Andy Lonergan was confirmed by the Toffees.
As per the official website of the Goodison Park faithful, they have signed the goalkeeper until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Should Everton have signed Lonergan?
This is because Joao Virginia is poised to leave the Merseyside club on a loan deal, and Harry Tyrer suffered a serious injury in training.
With Jordan Pickford in the squad, Lonergan is not likely to get much game time under Rafa Benitez, if any, and at 37 years of age, is certainly not a signing for the future and a bit uninspiring with less than two weeks of the summer window left to go.
He is also a former Liverpool player, and so it is understandable to see so many Toffees supporters against the move.
Everton fans on Lonergan signing
These Blues fumed as news of the signing was shared on Twitter, with one even going as far as to claim that it is ’embarrassing’:
“Nearly as bad as me signing Adrian on FM this”
“How do Everton constantly find a new way to shock you?”
“Did we really just sign some random 37-year-old keeper? Where are the proper signings exactly? That improve the first team + squad. We are still desperate for a right-back more than anything”
“Sign some actual good players please”
“We are signing a player that is unlikely to even make the bench?”
