As always, there is the nagging fear that accompanies any Blue's optimism, but I think this time the optimism is justifiable. There is a general buzz around the whole club - new executives, new management team, new players, new stadium, new corporate offices, new EITC projects.
I believe most fans are realistic enough to know it will take a little time for Silva to work his magic with both his ideas and the new arrivals. After the dross of the last season I'll be happy to see a team with an attacking philosophy and a little bit of flair.
For the moment, I'm holding back the fear and going with joyous optimism and total positivity...
I came online to post something about the positivity I feel about the club going into the new season ...Beaten to it!
From the club's new-look website to the new manager, DoF, new players, new stadium plans - everything just exudes confidence and a positive outlook going forward. Also, fans and management seem more in agreement over players to retain, bring in and let go. We now seem to have a manager and squad that can deliver the style of play that can bring exciting football back to the club - and hopefully success. This is POSITIVELY different.
Everton FC, for all the good it brings to the community, deserves to shine also on the pitch. NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM!
