Ok, things have been bad this season for Everton. There’s no question about it. But this is the absolute low, right? The Europa League is as good as gone. Sure, there is plenty of time left in the regular season, but any shot at earning a European spot through league finish is dead. What’s left? Earn a top-ten spot in the Prem? Win a Cup? Great. Glad we won the summer, though.
