There’s something about Everton right now that just seems dull, doesn’t it? Yes, they have a new striker and are a few years from a shiny stadium. But why can’t they hold onto a homegrown talent like Ross Barkley? Why can’t they find a left-back to succeed Leighton Baines? Why is Sam Allardyce the manager?
Maybe I’m just experiencing a mid-season depression and it will soon dissipate, but this club has got me down. There is little to play for in what’s left of this season, and the organization’s decision-makers seem directionless. But it’s January. This is not the prime time for business, and the Toffees rarely make huge splashes in the market this time of year. In fact, based on the fairly recent winter signings like Aiden McGeady and Oumar Niasse, it would be smart to steer clear of transfers right now.
