Everton are not in the best place right now. Last season, they avoided relegation by only a whisker and to start off this season with only one draw in four matches suggests they’re not on course for the same fate.
Granted, Everton did well in the transfer window, but not well enough for a team who should really be pushing for mid-table as a minimum.
From my personal perspective, it’s a shame to see a great club run down by poor ownership. While I won’t point fingers to the manager since he kept them up, to even hire Sean Dyche, who isn’t known for pushing past expectations and only just meeting them, speaks volumes to Everton’s ambitions.
Still, Everton remains a family club, so they have hopes of getting behind their team enough to see them survive another season. But they may have to do so without one of their best assets.
Demarai Gray hits out at Everton as he wants a Saudi Arabia move
According to 90min, Demarai Gray has hit out at Everton as he would like a move away from the Merseyside club. Missing out on a European move, the chance of playing in Saudi Arabia is still a viable option for the versatile forward, which he will grab with both hands.
Gray is yet to play a single minute for Everton this season, despite his contract running out at the end of the season, In truth, he’s not part of Sean Dyche’s plans for the season and it doesn’t look like they have a healthy relationship. Therefore, a move away would benefit all parties.
Gray was thought to be the next best thing and I can remember there was a lot of hype around his name when he played for Leicester. Unfortunately, though, his career hasn’t panned out the way he would like. Moving to a developing league in Saudi Arabia makes sense for him.
