The days when we could even finish top 7 look a distant memory now and next season will be equally as hard as this.
There are no pushovers in this league anymore and teams are regularly coming up from promotion and finishing in strong positions.
Everton have lost too many reliable players and characters between 2012 and 2017 and replaced them with lesser men thats why we can no longer reach consistency or produce higher finishes.
The sales of Lukaku, Barkley and Stones havent seen them replaced with better players.
The sales of squad players like Deulofeu and Lennon havent seen drastic improvements in their place.
We replaced Gareth Barry with Schneiderlin enough said.
We have sat and watch Coleman go downhill with no idea of a top class long term replacement for him.
Baines has been replaced by a fairly competent Lucas Digne although still question marks over his defensive capabilities.
Have we replaced goals in midfield that we once got from the likes of Fellaini, Cahill or Osman?
No we havent.
Have we got a variety of striking options capable of sticking the ball in the net?
No we havent.
I think talk of top fours is just premature and you are talking about something years and years off now.
We cant even win a game against a top four club.

So on the face of it, given what Moshiri has said, we're going to continue in mid-table for the moment. If we want true glory at the very top, we need someone like Usmanov. I think it really is that simple.

Right now the decline of the first team and its impact on investment, makes progress, with out heavy weight backing, look impossible.
I hope Im miles off, and the road to recovery will be found, but this is the reality of the mess, the club is in.

We've had huge income from the television deals and from out going transfers. I'm pretty sure all of our buys have come from these sources and not from the Moshiri's pockets.

£400k PER WEEK!!! FOR RAMSEY... C'MON!?!?!
Brands needs to be a fucken genius to get us back to the top of the pile.

I think we can safely say Silva is no Pocchetino so I don't know where we go from here but ever more depressing after a wave of euphoria when Moshiri took over.

Back on topic, FFP prevents us copying what Man City and Chelsea did anyway. FFP is closing the door on the “big 6” so no-one else can break in by spending their way there. The only way is by a smart young coach and astute signings and development of young players.
You know, the strategy that takes time, is prone to downturns in form, and can be a bumpy road requiring lots of patience.

Pochettino got the Spurs job 'cos of what he did at Southampton. I'm still wondering why Silva was deemed good enough to come here? His record in the Premier League is dreadful — he's been relegated and sacked.
Saying we should give Silva time 'cos it took Pochettino a season or two to turn Spurs into what they are is wishful thinking. Pochettino is a world-class manager; Silva is vastly overrated and is lucky to be at a club of our size.

If Everton want to be a Top Six Premier League Club, they need a Top Class Manager who will be able to make Everton great again and make its players believe in themselves. It's time to be professional.

The timelines and trophies won for Man City are also incorrect. Hughes was sacked after 18 months and it was Mancini who won their first Premier League title in 2012 not Pellegrini.

Thank you for pointing out the correct facts as I find it amazing that anyone would write an article without actually checking the facts and figures of what he is saying!
If you are going to write an article that encourages opinion, at least check you have your facts correct!!!
