This is not a drill. Everton are a bad football team. A new manager may not be changing that. Abandon the Europa League. Who cares about cup competitions? Put all of the effort into protecting the club’s Premier League lives. January still feels eons away. Reinforcements are not coming anytime soon, and the weekends will only get more glum from here. This is a relegation fight.
