Again the power of twitter helped me to find out the view of some Everton fans:
@stockporttoffee - 'i predict a top 6 finish and a good cup run'
Someone with a lot to say was @stockporttoffee who was confident that Everton can maintain their top 7 status but did say it 'depends on injuries'. He highlighted the importance of the current squad and certain players to their chances for next season - one player he gave special mention to is Fellaini advising 'if he keeps fit this season it could see the blues sneak into the top 6.'
He went on to highlight players he feels Moyes will be looking to to hit top form; Arteta, who 'only did in flashes last season'; Jack Rodwell who had a 'quiet 2010/2011'; and Jermaine Beckford will be 'looking to improve on 1st season total of 10 goals'
@stockporttoffee 'Key players: Baines, Fellaini, Jagielka and Arteta.'
'A lot is made of Everton's lack of spending,but the key is they usually keep there best players with only Lescott and pienaar being notable 1st teamers that have left in recent years.' i think this is shown through the tight squad they have at Goodison with not much movement of players they have a good team cohesion and spirit.
@stockporttoffee finally picked out a few 'players to watch' for next season which i think is most interesting for non-everton fans. 1. 'Leon Osman now 30 but in the form of his life and England is not impossible.' - ok so we all know about Osman but he is on top form 2. Ross Barkley. who at only 17 is an 'exciting prospect' who suffered a double leg break setting him back somewhat, and is thought to be 'one to watch' 3. Gueye French U21 International - talented striker/winger expected to make more appearances this season.'
@EFCKingy - ' should be top 6 minimum'
