What does £15m get you these days @Normm
In those days - Barkley. Conte didn't even get in touch with him. Besides, Koeman's future was by then in doubt at the club. Under Koeman, he didn't see much of a future remaining. But, if Everton had brought in the right manager, such as Silva, it could all have been turned around. He could have been offered a new contract under a manager that valued him and could have helped his development. The police investigated allegations of fraud and found nothing. I really don't think Ross conspired to defraud. It was just a mess. Everton was a mess. All I am saying is let it pass. That's history and today (11/11) is a time to reflect on peace.
Everton is a great club with a great past and a great future just about to begin. If you focus on the "if only's" of life you will become a miserable, backward-looking defeatist. ...Which reminds me: 1-2 tomorrow! And I would be more than happy if Barkley scores for us!
No more. I just want to see the lads go into this match with growing confidence and self-belief. This is going to be a real test for both teams.
