Everton Season Preview: Squad Weaknesses

Despite an excellent off-season from the Toffees, Roberto Martinez's squad is not perfect and may require further reinforcements before the season kicks off against Leicester City. The long awaited signing of Romelu Lukaku is officially in the books leaving Everton's first team largely set for the upcoming season. Squad depth, however, is an area of concern with the Toffees competing in the Europa League in addition to league games and domestic cups. Injuries ravaged the squad at the end of last season and Roberto Martinez will need to have a back-up plan if any of the starters go down...

Did Everton overpay for Romelu Lukaku?

We've seen two narratives emerge from Romelu Lukaku's arrival at Everton. On one side, most Evertonians are ecstatic to get such a young talent at such a young price. If you go ask Chelsea supporters, some can't believe they let Lukaku go for so cheap and others think that the club managed to fleece Everton. But which side is right? Transfer prices are padi based on the hope of future production, but they are largely based on past services. It is a magical science that no one can quite explain. Honestly it wouldn't shock me if managers just had a dart board in their office with transfer...

A major coup for the Toffees as the big Belgian returns home No Evertonians you weren’t dreaming! Like most Blues I was expecting to wake up this morning and realise last night was something I had dreamt. Everton have paid £28million to bring Romelu Lukaku in permanently. Even now that sentence doesn’t seem real. Once the 21-year-old is wearing the number 10 rather than number 17 it might just sink in that Lukaku is an Everton player. July 30, 2014 is a date that will go down in the Blues’ history not only for breaking their transfer record but also - depending on what the striker...
