Everton Fan Mailbag: It's time for Moshiri to take some responsibility for the club's mistakes
Every week we’ll be asking Everton fans on our Twitter account for questions that will be answered by Goodison News correspondent Jack Cunningham. You can join in by following the Goodison News Twitter account and watching out for weekly mailbag posts.
Everton are in a sorry state, and it is time for Farhad Moshiri to shoulder some of the responsibility.
Yes, Rafael Benitez isn’t getting the results on the pitch, but he has been left in a shocking position by the board.
Thanks to years of financial mismanagement, the Spaniard was handed the lowest transfer budget in the league, and the squad depth is shocking.
With that in mind, we asked for your burning questions about all things Everton-related for Goodison News correspondent Jack Cunningham to answer. One Toffees fan wanted to know why his club constantly sacks managers.
Thanks for the fantastic question, Damian.
If we look at some of Everton’s past managers, we can see a worrying trend that suggests the board aren’t willing to take any responsibility for the club’s failures.
Marco Silva was handed a lot of money to spend but was sacked after a similar run to the one Benitez is on.
Ronald Koeman was also allowed a lot of money, but a scattergun transfer policy saw too many players for one position arrive.
Again, he endured a similar run to Benitez’s current one, so the signs don’t look good for the Spaniard.
However, after spending over £500million on players since he arrived at Goodison, you would think Moshiri should have a much better squad [Mirror].
Instead, the Toffees have one senior left-back and one senior right-back.
Now, Coleman and Digne have been fantastic in the past, but with no competition, they can be pretty safe in the knowledge they will play week in week out.
There have been a catalogue of horrible decisions from those at the top, and they have led to the position the Toffees find themselves in today.
Benitez could very well pay the price, but none of it is his fault, and the board should come out and apologise for what has happened to Everton.
