The English Premier Football League season, that is. Manchester United are the champions. Everton finished fifth and is headed to Europe for the third time in four years.
You can read my before-and-after post here.
Although this is not Everton’s highest finish of the decade, it’s clearly our best season in two decades in terms of point total. We also had two strong cup runs. It’s been quite some time since we had one.
I’ll leave the final word to soccer icon Kevin Keegan, former European player of the year, former manager of the English national team, and current manager of Newcastle United. After today’s match King Kev said:
Everton are an inspiration to everyone. They do not have a massive squad, but they invested well last summer and they have taken fifth spot, which is a terrific situation to be in.
They are together as a team, they play for each other. And they have a lot of very, very good players.
They are the ones to look at. Maybe I wasn’t quite right when I said that the top four is always the same, but nearly. But it must be said that if they [Everton] can do what they have done, why can’t we?
They are where we want to be. And in David Moyes they have an excellent manager.
