Our Everton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are just happy to be pulling away from the relegation zone after a disastrous start to the season.
Everton are on to their third manager of the season so far and we’re only three-quarters of the way through what was supposed to be a wonderful campaign for the upwardly mobile Toffees. At the start of the season, the Blues were tipped to be top six, possibly top four contenders, though that’s not how things worked out.
They spent big and with that, the regular Blues in the bar raised their expectations under Ronald Koeman.
Nothing could have been further from the expectations as they flirted with relegation far too close for many of the punters’ likings. Indeed, after David Unsworth’s short and largely unsuccessful interim period, Big Sam came to the rescue and drove the Toffees upwards in the league.
