That is just so not true. Our deserved draws feel like loses and our close wins against shitty teams feel like draws b/c we have high expectations. But we are a full 16 points above the relegation zone now -- and the gap is likely to get larger by season's end as we will play some pretty bad teams over the next three weeks. We were never in danger of being relegated, and pretending like we were now, when we are fully 16 points above the relegation zone, typifies the sort of irrational fear that led to the hiring of Allardyce in the first place.
Holding Everton to a higher standard is right and good; but making overly dramatic assessments of the team that are, frankly, untethered from reality is entirely counterproductive.
Our performances have been dreadful. Hammered by Watford and palace under unsworth and we got 4 points. Didn’t deserve more than a draw on the opening day either. In fact we were shit every single game under Koeman.
I struggle to think of many games where we deserved more than we got. Feel free to enlighten me though
