As quoted by The Liverpool Echo, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has offered a frank assessment of where things are going wrong for the club with our Toffees fans annoyed here in the Transfer Tavern.
They are annoyed because it appeared at the start of this season that they were going to at least challenge for Europe but now they face serious competition from the likes of Watford, Stoke and West Brom for those places.
Indeed, it was against Watford where the Blues’ latest defeat occurred as they lost 3-2 despite a brace from the Belgian striker who didn’t hold back with his words after the game.
The former Chelsea man said:
“We need to talk as a group – we can’t continue like that. We need to show a bit more maturity and be honest with each other as well.
“The run we’re in is not good. It’s not good for the fans and the players as well, because the manager is doing a job and if we continue like that he might put players out of the team.
“We need to work harder and be focused. We need the fans at Goodison as well and we need to get them back onside.”
The Blues are currently in their first season under Ronald Koeman whilst they have new financial resources – a combination that many hoped would see them shoot up the table.
It’s still early days, of course, but things need to change as soon as possible results-wise for the club or they’ll have another season of mid-table mediocrity.
Our landlord thinks new signings are a must in January whilst he also thinks the likes of Lukaku could be doing a tad more this season himself up front for the club.
Where’s it going wrong, Everton fans? Let us know below!
