It has almost been two decades since Everton last finished above Liverpool in a competitive league season, they have only in that time achieved 5th place three times and now with the current dominance across the world of their Merseyside rivals, the two clubs have never been so apart in terms of quality on and off the field. The Toffees have been on a constant downward spiral since the departure of David Moyes in 2012 and with no less than seven managerial appointments, temporary or permanent, not one has managed to close the gap and attempt to overtake Liverpool, minus Roberto Martinez’s first season in charge, the rest have been pretty dire for the blues..
Without a single domestic piece of silverware since 1995, the peoples club, have not much to cheer about. Under new ownership with majority stakeholder Farhad Moshiri, the Iranian billionaire spending around £450million on new recruits at Goodison Park, yet has seen nothing in return for his spend and he vows to continue until Merseyside is painted Blue for as long as it can.
Since the departure of Marco Silva, the Everton job has been a much sought after job with plenty of candidates expressing their interest in the job, but with Duncan Ferguson’s controversy over subbing off Moise Kean at Old Trafford, Moshiri now has put Ferguson last in the queue for the job but there is massive talks over the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Arsene Wenger taking the hot seat at Goodison but the odds on and a surprising favourite is Corey Eaton-McKnight, who despite a lack of Premier League experience is hoping to guide this once successful club back to where it belongs and bring smiles back on the faces of Everton fans for once and for all. Tune in to the next update, to find out who is appointed and the in comings/outgoings are under the new regime!
