Despite losing Wayne Rooney to Manchester United at the end of August 2004, and only signing 2 new players during the summer, David Moyes’ men found a team spirit no-one expected and scaled the heights of the Premiership, sitting in second place at Christmas, a welcome present to every Blue!
Thomas Gravesen, who had been influential in the first half of the season made a move to Real Madrid in January, and James Beattie joined to become Everton’s record signing. Mikel Arteta also joined on loan.
The Blues continued to find enough form to finish in a Champions League spot and qualify for Europe by virtue of their league position for the first time in 23 years.
