I did a few stories before Christmas but most of those are now dead in the water and I can't see myself going back to them. I have already started this save and I am at the end of the January Transfer Window. I did pictures and everything but my PC crashed and I lost all my pictures I had saved up for this story. I will do a few little updates now without pictures and then later today there will be a a few more with pictures from where I am at the moment in time.

Big U-turn in the run for the next Everton Manager

News coming out of Goodison Park is that Roberto Martinez is not going to become the new Manager at Everton FC after Bill Kenwright made a statement that they could not come to an agreement with Transfer Funds and Season Targets. Martinez was supposedly offer a £15Million Transfer Kitty with £1.2 Million weekly wages available and all the Everton Board where asking for was for the team to qualify for the Europa League either by qualification from League Position or by Qualifying through one of the FA Cups or Capital One Cup.

Kenwright has said that there will be a statement in the coming weeks of the new manager that they have met and he has already signed a contract with the club until the Summer of 2016 with the acceptance he needs to qualify for European Football.

Unknown Man Alex Capp Hired

Unknown Manager Alex Capp has been hired as the new Manager of Everton Football Club. Many people in the Football world are asking what Everton are thinking about hiring a man with no experience of managing a First Team with his only Experience being from a Youth Team coach at Dunstable Town FC and Luton Town FC.

A Statement from the Board at Everton have said that after extensive talks with Capp they where convinced that he was the right man for the job as he understood the club and that they would like to look at buying new young talent and improving their own young players as their only philosophies with also Transfer Budgets and Expectations of the team agreed quickly afterwards

Here is the round up of the 1st season in Charge for new Evrton Manager Alex Capp

Capp had his chance to fully evaluate his squad before the beginning of the new season and by looking at his team performances they do look ready to go for the season ahead

2013/2014 Transfers

Capp has made a good mix of signings from young good players with potential Like Maguire and Nicola Murru to experienced players like A.Hunt and Juanfran

Capp can be proud of his team's performance in the FA Cup by winning the tournament and along the way winning difficult games against Tottenham in the Semi-Final and Man United in the Final

Capp's top performer of the Tournament has to be Romelu Lukaku after he scored 4 goals and got 5 assist's in 5 appearances

Even though they didn't win the tournament Capp can be proud of his players as they proved to be tough opposition until the Final where they seemed to crumble against an inform Chelsea team 4-0

Capp has two men of the Tournament in Ross Barkley and Kevin Miralles as both played well for Everton scoring and assisting a of goals between them

Capp's men have proven many pundits of football wrong with their performance in the Premier League this season instead of finishing the predicted 5th and finishing 2nd and also pushing Chelsea all the way for them to win the Title, which means they also beat the board's expectations of qualifying for the Europa League by going one better and getting into the Champions League

Undoubtedly Everton's Top performer has to be Kevin Miralles scoring 19 goals and getting 16 assist's in 34 appearances, with also strong showings from Striker Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley in attack with Baines and Jagielka proving to be top performers at the back for Everton
Once I have completely caught up to where I am I will be able to give more in depth reviews

2014/2015 Friendlies

It was a good pre-season for Everton as they played 5 games won 4 and lost only 1. They started off poorly losing 4-1 to Lyon but then strong performances against Junior, Gladbach and Portadown finishing with a very tasty game away at Besiktas finally winning the game 5-4

Capp had this to say about his team's performance in the Pre-Season:

I am proud of the lads. The guys who where here last season helped me with integrating the new players and helping them understanding my tactics and the way we play. I have been most impressed with Lacazette, Schurrle, Gauld and Miralles in the attacking department with Stones, Coleman and Murru impressing me in the defensive department

Here at BBC Sport we can bring you a full list of the transfer comings and goings at Everton with our Pundits Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker and Alan Hansen running the rule over them.

Alan Shearer
I feel Capp and the Everton board should be proud of deals they have been able to pull off bringing in some really great young talent being signed in the shape Mason Bennett, Ryan Gauld and Will Keane with also adding some much needed squad depth to be able to handle Champions League football. I do believe they have pulled off a bit of a coup in signing Andre Schurrle from Chelsea after he had a torrid season at Chelsea only making one Substitute Appearance for the Blues. I do feel Capp will regret selling Aiden McGeady and Bryan Oviedo as both players I feel played extremely well last season and think should of been kept.

Gary Lineker
I feel the signing of Lacazette and Schurrle shows a real statement of intent from Alex Capp and the Everton Board that last season was not just a fluke. He has also added some much needed depth not only just in defence but all over the pitch. I do feel he has done well though to keep hold onto some of his most important players in Miralles and Baines and has added more quality.

Alan Hansen
I believe that last season they where thin on the ground in defence but Capp has recognised that and brought in Nacho from Real Madrid who can play anywhere across the back line and also brought in Kyle Naughton in on loan from Tottenham. He has also acquired a player in Andre Schurrle who I feel is a great signing and can add a lot to this very young and talented Everton team

As it is half way through the season we have a look at how well Everton have been doing this season. They Started off the season with a visit to newly promoted Leicester City and beating them 3-0. Everton have won a lot of games comfortably like Away at QPR or West Brom or at Home to Fulham. There where a lot of highly entertaining games like the 4-3 win at Southmpton or the 3 all Draw at Old Trafford.

Everton did prove they are no push over's however winning 3-1 at home to Chelsea at drawing 1 all at the City of Manchester Stadium albeit scoring with literally the last kick of the game

Top performers for Everton that have seen them rise to the top of the table are Lacazette, Miralles, Barkley and Schurrle leading the attack. Baines and Coleman have been the leaders of the defence not only defending well but also helping the attack with some great supply of crosses

Can Everton hold on to the top spot of the table? Only time will tell

Capp and his players have been performing well in the Capital One Cup reaching the Semi Final and in turn meeting the Boards Expectations, Players like Lacazette and Barkley have been leading this team through difficult games and seem to have a great understanding of eachother

Vintage display by Everton

Everton have progressed to the Final to face Manchester City after an very entertaining first leg game at Hull City where Everton won 6-4. Everton then brought the advantage home and put in a dominant, controlling game at Goodison Park winning 1-0 with a goal from Everton striker Lacazette after a great passing move from the team on the counter attack with Lacazette finishing the move off

In the two latest rounds of the FA Cup, Everton have progressed well beating Oldham in a tricky affair at Boundry Park drawing 2-2 at half time before Ross Barkley scored with lovely close range finish after lovely ply down the right wing from Miralles and Coleman before Miralles played Barkley through the Middle of the Oldham defence to score.

I'm proud of the lads we have played extremely well in the 3rd and 4th Rounds and we now face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in the 5th Round where we feel quietly confident of winning the match and progressing to the 6th Round
New updates coming later today

Would like to hear people's suggestions on ways to improve my story?
