Everton supporters have aired their disappointment following an admission from the club’s former director of football, Steve Walsh.

In an interview with The Athletic, Walsh admitted that the had the chance to make a number of big-name signings, however, decided not too (per The Athletic).

Current left-back for noisy neighbours, Andy Robertson, was one, Leicester City centre-back, Jonny Evans, another, along with Manchester United’s Harry Maguire (via Liverpool Echo).

With many Everton supporters contemplating what might have been, they showed their disappointment that the decided against the, now, star names.

Another name on the prospective list was Norwegian 19-year-old Erling Haaland, who has bagged 26 goals in 18 appearances for RB Salzburg already this term (per Transfermarkt).

With supporters reflecting on what might have been, some had an ironic response on the players that the opted to sign instead.

Others were more frustrated with the man himself, who was at the for two years from 2016 during Ronald Koeman’s time as boss (via Liverpool Echo), as they believed he should have done more.


What do we think?

The of Robertson, Evans, Maguire and Haaland all currently turning out in Everton blue is a startling one, especially when considering how different the Toffees’ fortunes could be with them aboard.

However, this kind of thing probably goes on all the time in football, with many former directors of football contemplating what might have been.
