Good read. Thanks!
I deal in facts, fact......I never said that at all, fact......we have 7 points after 7 games, fact......last season we had 14 points at this stage of the season.….and it took us until February(or maybe later) to reach 20 points. A salutary lesson not to get carried away with an obviously appealing & obnoxious manager. Remember you getting all excited saying we’d get a record points total & saying we should all buy pillows with Benitez’s image on.
Yea but but but …. Ahh forget it life’s too short to dig up that old bone7 points after 7 games, last season we had 14 at the same stage.
I remeber all the hissy fits last season after the 9th game, when we still had 14 points, if we beat both Southampton and Manchester United in our next two games, we will still be a point worse off then we were when we lost too Norwich last season.
At this point last season, we started a run of 1 win in 13 under a supposedly "top level manager". Let's see if that happens this season.I deal in facts, fact......I never said that at all, fact......we have 7 points after 7 games, fact......last season we had 14 points at this stage of the season.
Another fact is the brilliant start to last season was done on a budget of 1.8m, unlike this season/ calendar year were a LOT of players have been bought in and real coin has been spent, even if some has been recycled money.
Did we need to hit our rock bottom for the re-evaluation of what we are and what we need to push on?Isn’t it great that we have half the points total than we had last season and we are so much happier! Last season we knew the wheels would come off in spectacular fashion and sure enough it did.
This season is a slow burner but we are all behind the manager and players because we can see it building week by week (even if the results haven’t been great)
Theirs a plan, a togetherness, a direction, an overhaul of the squad, an atmosphere at Goodison again, improvement in players, fight and passion.
Barring a couple of people at board level who need to be launched as far away from the club as possible it’s starting to feel like we have our club back, it’s early days but there is that feeling with me.
In a way yeah, we did, if last season was another were Everton just made up the Premier League numbers, something Moshiri would accept, this season would be another none event.Did we need to hit our rock bottom for the re-evaluation of what we are and what we need to push on?
Did we need that Benitez spell to highlight all this?
