Player Valuation: £70m
Koeman and Allardyce never beat any of the top 6 at the end of the season in the sunshine. Also there was plenty riding on it for all of the teams we played.For me he has to do a couple of the following things next season to be successful:
Win away at top 6 ground
More than 5 away wins
Get past a top 6 team in the cup
If he can do any of those things next season then it’s a positive sign. Unfortunately beating a few of the top 6 in the sunshine at the end of the season when there’s nothing riding on it and finishing 8th is all too easy for Everton managers. Cracking any of the above would show that we’re moving forward.
