In the end we came 8th, which im both happy and disapointed to say, as for the early part of the season we were comfortably looking like a top 6 side. In the end the boards target of top half was made, but we did finish 10 points behind 7th!
Leicester did a horrid job at retaining the league, as things stand I dont have the financial clout to move in for Mahrez
in the EFL Cup we reached the quarter finals losing 1-0 to Palace, who went on to the win the competition - we beat Peterborogh then Millwall in the early rounds.

Round 4 beat Birmingham in a replay 2-0.
Round 5 saw us face championship side Brighton who we beat 2-1
Quarter finals saw us against championship side again in the form of Hudddesfield 4-1 victory
Semis saw us struggle against Watford with the result being settled by an own goal to ensure we make it to the final
in the Final we faced Liverpool who in the league we had the crazy 5-4 victory and a 2-0 loss at Anfield
Evertons first silverware since 1995, made even sweeter cause we beat Liverpool.
Will this cup victory ensure those players seeking moves to bigger clubs be enough to keep them here! Lukaku? Coleman? Barkley?
I feel like Lukaku even though got 17 and finished leading goalscorer, could of done alot better, possibly as his head is looking to move on his head may not be focused. On loan Enner on the otherhand actually felt like the better attacking option!
Erik done very well when given the opertunity, I will be keeping this guy around!
Financially we sit 50k in the red! , the premier league prize money came in when we were 20m in red, I think the debt payback and the monthly fee of Donnarumma is having an effect here, so my summer might be quiet, unless big offers come in!
Edit: Financially the boards new season budgget 43m! after our balance jumped to 44m through sponsor income! - Still i think it might be a quieter front on the incoming.
