Outspoken Red Graeme Souness on the current situation at Everton:
“I have enormous sympathy for Everton fans, having lived in the city for seven years as a player. I know the big and emotional support that Everton supporters carry for the football club. Everton historically are a great football club and it’s sad to see the current situation, I really mean that.
People think I’m a Liverpool man, but there should be two great clubs in Merseyside, and it’s just come about by a new owner believing he knew about football and listening to the wrong people and have not bought very well.”
