Everton in need of consistency to fulfil potential

Published Add your comment

Everton produced a stunning away performance at the St. Mary's against Southampton this past weekend to claim their first win of the 2015/16 season.

Following a tough start to the campaign that saw them twice come from behind to claim a point at home to newly promoted Watford, there were further murmurs of discontent amongst the Goodison Park faithful.


Any football fan can see the potential that this Everton side has. A core group of players, including the likes of Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka and Tim Howard have been joined by fledgling young stars of Seamus Coleman, Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley, John Stones and James McCarthy.

The performances of these young players are seen as pivotal to the success of the Goodison Park outfit. On their day, the Toffees can compete with anyone in the league, and if they can learn to become the consistent force that Roberto Martinez craves, they could finally start to make waves in the division. 

New signings

The group has been added to with the re-signing of exciting young Barcelona player Gerard Deulofeu, who completes his move after a successful loan spell in the 2013/14 season.

Fans will be hoping for more signings of this ilk, with Martinez reportedly keen to add to his squad before the end of the window on September 1.

In addition to this, supporters will be desperately hoping that Martinez and owner Bill Knewright can stave off Chelsea's interest in defender John Stones. Everton fans will now be hoping that Martinez can find the right formula for a team that could offer a serious threat to the top five or six if they can find some much needed consistency.
