Everton: Massive backlash on cards as fans gather at Finch Farm overnight

Everton are facing massive backlash from fans as the club closed the January transfer window by making zero signings, according to the Mirror.

Fans arrived late into the night at Finch Farm to voice their disgust, hanging banners that pointed the finger at Everton owner Farhad Moshiri.

The billionaire businessman had promised Everton supporters that they would get the striker they needed before the 11 PM deadline, something which never happened.

“Everton are facing a massive fans backlash, after a day of frustration, anger and eventual disappointment as the transfer window closed without a signing,” as quoted by the Mirror. (1 February)

“Fans arrived late at the club’s Finch Farm training ground late in the evening as the deadline was looming, to hang banners over the main gates, protesting at the regime of owner Farhad Moshiri.

“The billionaire businessman had promised supporters ‘Everton would get the striker they need’ before the deadline at 11 pm on Tuesday evening, but despite pursuing more than half a dozen targets, the Blues failed to complete a deal.

With the club in a midst of a crisis and Premier League relegation battle, the January transfer window couldn’t have come at a better time.

Or so this is what Evertonians thought, what happened this month was the opposite and it’s been one to forget for the Blue half of Merseyside.

Dyche must be thinking about what he has gotten himself into this morning and was surely given assurances signings would be made when he took the job.

How the Toffees have seemingly managed to avoid doing so is disgraceful and pretty much sums up the position the club are in right now.

With all the Blues’ Premier League relegation rivals improving their squads this month, Everton has now stood still with only a potential deal for free agent Andre Ayew on the cards.

But this hardly helps the cause and isn’t the face or name fans or the club needs to propel them up the Premier League table in the coming weeks.

What a mess.
