Thank you, you have summed up my thoughts exactly. We have a good starting 11 and actually the makings of a young squad for once. Yes we would love a superstar number ten...who wouldn't? But really, how many are out there AND why would the Superstar come here? We have no Champions League, we cannot offer crazy wages, we have a ground that cannot be expanded or apparently redeveloped and oh, we cannot offer a London address. Guys, we are NOT going to get a superstar in his PRIME...for Everton to succeed we need to continue what we are doing: developing our own young players like Ross, finding gems like Stones (no pun!) and Coleman and taking a gamble on the likes of Mori and Delefau and McCarthy and putting them in a team with seasoned vets like Howard and Barry and splurging every now and then on the likes of Lukaku.
For us to compete for the top four, we need the whole to be greater than the sum of the parts. Until we get bought out by some filthy rich foreign investor...this is it. Life is much simpler when you temper your expectations:)
