Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern were again bemoaning their side’s poor run of form after seeing the Toffees go down to Burnley on Sunday.
Ronald Koeman’s side had only three days earlier managed a disappointing 2-2 draw against Cypriot minnows Apollon Limassol in the Europa League, and they were unable to make it back-to-back Premier League victories thanks to Jeff Hendrick’s fine first half strike for the Clarets.
Sean Dyche’s men deservedly took all three points from their visit to Merseyside, and further piled the pressure on Toffees boss Koeman, who is beginning to lose the faith of several of our resident Evertonians.
The Dutchman took over at Goodison Park back in the summer of 2016 and led the club to seventh place in the Premier League last season and, after a summer of big spending, many were hoping that they would push on and sustain a challenge to the top six this time round.
But just two wins from their opening seven league matches suggests anything but, and as such Koeman’s position as manager has been heavily speculated upon, with reports suggesting that he’s close the axe, while others suggest that the Toffees hierarchy are lining up possible replacements, with ex-Watford chief Walter Mazzarri reportedly a possibility.
And after a poor start to the season, here are THREE reasons why Everton should indeed sack Koeman before their next match against Brighton a week on Saturday…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
