Review Of Year 2005-2006....

Recommended Posts

Here is the review of last season.....

 

 

After a fairly traumatic start to the season, Everton showed a great deal of character to put things right on the pitch and recover sufficiently to finish just outside the top 10.

 

After all the excitement of finishing fourth in 2004-05, Everton's hopes were dashed by defeat to Villarreal in the Qualifying Round and then to Dinamo Bucharest in the first round of the Uefa Cup.

 

In addition to that, Everton found themselves struggling in the league and lost seven of their opening eight Premiership matches, scoring just one goal in the process. In fact, they went six games without a

goal, equalling a club record they set in The Premiership back in 1994. But things picked up after their draw against Chelsea and The Toffees gradually eased themselves out of the danger zone and away from the battle to avoid the drop.

 

David Moyes' side struggled to score goals all season and only three teams - the relegated clubs - scored fewer than The Toffees. A significant issue was the lack of chances created. Only four teams attempted fewer shots than the 346 mustered by Everton, but quality was also lacking in that only two teams converted a lower proportion of their chances. Everton needed round 11 shots per goal scored.

 

Everton also struggled to retain possession of the ball, with only two teams attempting fewer passes. The Toffees were one of the more prolific teams in terms of crossing the ball and were just one shy of a thousand centres over the course of the campaign.

 

Everton were put under a lot of pressure and no team was forced in to more defensive clearances, block and interceptions over the course of the campaign. This defensive work also resulted in seven dismissals and 62 yellow cards, one of the highest crime counts in the division. This was hardly surprising though given only three teams have committed more fouls than the 592 Everton gave away.

 

The first goal often proved crucial in Everton matches, especially as Moyes' charges won more games by 1-0 than any other scoreline. 10 of their 14 victories came by that result. The Toffees lost just one game all season after going ahead, but they were one of five teams who didn't come back to win any matches after falling behind. In fact, in 18 games where they trailed, they came back to recoup just two points - a divisional low.

 

The Toffees form dipped again toward the end of the campaign when they won just one of their last eight Premiership matches. This was mainly due once again to the goals drying up. James Beattie went through a purple patch where he netted seven goals in 10 games over the winter, but he was the only Toffee to reach double figures overall.

 

Duncan Ferguson capped his Everton career with a goal on the final day of the season to rescue a point against West Brom and the fans were delighted to give him a good send off. The summer will be a busy one for David Moyes as he looks to enhance his squad and for it to then show the spirited form that saw them finish fourth in 2004-05.

Agree it was, but not as bad as when we used to finish 4th from bottom, the only difference is that it was a lot more exciting right up untill the final game. Mid table is shit

Can see where Zed is coming from...................I'm sure PORTSMOUTHS fans would have been Ecstatic with the way they finished off the season.

 

I suppose "middle of the road" is a bit boring. :)

its whats known as progression.

 

when moyes came here we were a relagation fodder each season and he has turned our average season position to belive it or not 10th.

 

now we have progressed alot under moyes. its a question of can he take us further.

 

i believe he can. if he gets us 6th or 7th next season i can see that we are going places
