New Everton manager Roberto Martinez faces a stern task as he prepares to step into the shoes of the departed David Moyes this season.
The former Wigan boss has an army of critics to prove wrong and a terrace full of fans to win over as he begins in his new role at Goodison Park.
The Spaniard has already made four summer signings having brought in three of his former players from the DW – Arouna Kone, Joel Robles and Antolin Alcaraz – along with Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu on loan.
But these purchases haven’t pleased everyone with Dan Ripley of the Daily Mail claiming the signings make the Toffee’s “look more like relegated Latics than top four hopefuls”.
A harsh assertion perhaps but then maybe he has a point.
Martinez has much to prove at Goodison Park.
Yes, he won the FA Cup in May, but he also got Wigan relegated.
By bringing in three players who were part of that doomed squad, are Everton really headed in the right direction?
Perhaps if Martinez made a few more signings this summer, his critics would be a lot less scornful in their analysis of the Merseyside outfit’s chances this season.
Here, we try to Predict Roberto Martinez’s 5 August Signings.
