The Everton skipper praises Carlo Ancelotti for turning the Toffees' fortunes around since the Italian's December takeover.
Seamus Coleman is sick of Everton's false dawns. That explains why, amid his obvious enthusiasm for the early promise of Carlo Ancelotti's reign, there is as much caution as excitement.
"I don't want to be having these conversations year after year when you have a decent run of form," Coleman says. "You don't want to be just speaking after a good few games saying, 'Ah, we are doing well'. I want us to be consistent. I want the club to be back challenging for Champions League places."This article by Chris Bascombe, originally published in the Daily Telegraph, seems to be the source for a number of copycat stories from a range of Irish sources this morning...

We have been here before with the first season of Martinez, the Moyes glass ceiling, the promise of Koeman when he was appointed.
This is not the best squad Everton have had in the last ten years, despite the money spent, we don't look like a team going forward, infact we were better attacking under Martinez (I won't mention defensively).
Ancelotti will need four or five really inspiring signings that take us forwards and on to the next level.
I don't like the way I still see Everton surrendering so much possession against teams that should be fearing us instead of the other way around, the likes of Leicester, Wolves, Southampton, we want to be the boss of these teams and then we should start making waves amongst the likes of Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea.
Four years into the Moshiri era and we haven't moved forward on the pitch, league positions remain roughly the same, Cup runs are elusive and the mentality still seems weak.
The right time for a good assessment of where Everton are heading will be the end of this year but it would be nice start seeing genuine concrete green shoots of recovery now.

The club is a mid table non-entity wasting more and more money on bog ordinary players it has become the "Everton way"

For such a player to come forward, he must have seen evidence that Ancelotti is prepared and is implementing significant changes, which are necessary. There must be resistance to such changes, but Coleman is prepared to stand up and take Ancelotti's side. This has never happened with the previous four Managers.

Actions always speak louder than words, so for Coleman to speak out like this, then it's deafening imo, and a breaking of the ranks couldn't have come at a better time, because we are safe and the transfer window is getting ready to open.
Whatever the formation, it hasn't suited the worse midfield in the Premier League, so hopefully there is an ulterior motive behind this key decision; otherwise, Ancelotti worries me.

If someone has limited ability but knocks their pan in, week-in & week-out, you can at least respect him despite the fact he may just not be good enough.
But those who constantly hide and play like cowards deserve to be outed and got rid of.

Ring any bells, Seamus?
