Everton are a disaster. It seems that no manager can fix what is well and truly broken at this club. The players look apathetic, off the pace and directionless. Scoring goals seems impossible and stopping them seems even less likely.
One positive: ditching the Europa League means all efforts can go towards the league. Based on current form, the Toffees need all of the help that they can get. Good grief.
