So much confusion surrounds Everton Football Club as the team heads to Tanzania. They have spent a boatload of cash this summer on an influx of talent. Yet some continue to debate whether it was spent wisely or not. Only time will give us that answer. But one thing is for sure: Everton mean business. They want who they want and they are willing to pay to make it happen. That is the action of a “big club”, something Everton aspire to and now seem closer to achieving than every before.
