Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Editor’s Note: There’s a saying somewhere that every day in the Premier League there is one club that is the center of all kinds of wrong attention, and the goal is to never be that club, or something to that effect.
Well, Everton this week are that club, and every mainstream media source wants their own spin on our misery. From articles detailing the demise of Everton Football Club both on and off the pitch, to just about every paper in the land writing their own fanfiction versions of what three Everton players to sign when they get a points deduction and go down, it’s been a lot to endure for us.
We ask that you persevere, even if our chances of survival are starting to look that much more forlorn. There is still time in the season to get things right, let us not wane in our love and support for an Everton that needs us now more than ever.
