Have you noticed on how we call a team without a single regular international- strong, and a season in which we have won nothing- successful.
Simply Everton has become one of the smaller clubs in the Premiershipo, which can no longer hope for anything above mid-table.

Everton have always been one of the biggest clubs in England.
They have just been unfortunate that all the money flooded into the game at a time when they were going through a bad spell.
In the same way as Man Utd were lucky to be going through a good spell when all the money arrived.
If the money had appeared when Everton were champions and Man Utd were in the 2nd division, things might be very different now.

how can you say that Everton have never been a big club. Just because they are bad now it does not mean that they were never good.
It also depends on what you class as a big club, if it is one with a big fan base than Everton remains a big club. If you are talking about prestige then it does seem that Everton are no longer a big club.

Sure they´ve got a international regular, have you forgotten Xavier. But still, just because you play on a regular basis for your national side, doesn´t mean that you´re any good. Look at players like Jeffers and Campbell, wouldn´t you rate them higher than Scotland regular Gallagher.

And yes, they are a big club. How else do you think they attract players like Collins, Xavier, Barmby and Stephen Hughes?? With they´re wage budget??

Everton will remain in the shadow of Liverpool, the merseysiders, for another long long time.

But I hope Everton will one day no longer be recognized as a mid-table team.
