Now the dust is starting to settle, and Alex Iwobi seems certain to be completed, two things are on my mind.
1) Have we improved our squad sufficiently to break into the top six?
2) Have teams around us improved their squads more so than us?
13 points off 6th & 17 off 5th last season. 6 points away from finishing 13th below Crystal Palace.
Iím usually a massive optimist when it comes to football. Itís more fun than the alternative.https://www.premierleague.com/news/1213395
I donít think weíve had a terrible window compared to Wolves, W.Ham, Leicester, Watford, or Man U.
I donít think weíve had a significantly better window than any of them either.
Iím not expecting Everton to be much more or less competitive and I think weíve got to look again in the winter transfer window and strengthen in 2/3 positions that could then make the difference.
Iím not delivering anything ground breaking here, but how does anyone else view how our squad is now compared to those around us?
