When I go back two years, people say: ‘Why in the world Everton?’ It’s easy to say now but at the time, you were looking at a fantastic football club with a fantastic group of players. When you get in there, you realise there are bigger issues. We obviously had some financial issues and a lot of inconsistency people running the place so that makes it very difficult for the staff and the players,” says former backup goalie Asmir Begovic.

It looks like Viktor Gyokeres may (sadly) be off Everton’s radar.

We’ve got a lot of staff who have been there for a lot of years who are massive Toffees. Some days it is good, if you get the win it’s ideal; if you get the loss it’s not so friendly. We didn’t want to make history for taking Everton down for the first time in however long. Not just for us as players or the fans but also the staff, it’s peoples’ livelihoods, people would lose their jobs. It’s a big team effort, a big club effort and it takes more than the players to get it over the line,” says Jordan Pickford. [Echo via Jill Scott’s Coffee Club Podcast]

Rumoured target El Bilal Toure looks to be receiving interest from several other clubs.

James Garner played the full 90 at rightback for the England U21s while Jarrad Branthwaite was an unused sub in a 2-0 win over the Czech Republic.

The last few weeks of the season were very tense. Everyone was talking about Everton perhaps being relegated. It was very tense so to score that goal meant everything. I worked hard to come back into the team, but the season was very difficult for me and for my family as well. I had some personal issues and as a professional, I didn’t play my part with the first manager. I was pleased to have helped the Club on the final day. I’m very happy and proud of myself, and my teammates. Everton are in the Premier League next season, but we need to be stronger than that,” says Doucoure. [EFC]
