Blues Review 2005

Blues Review 2005

2005 proved a momentous 12 months for Everton Football Club.

For the first time since the inception of the Premier League the Blues secured a top four finish. And that was enough to signal another historical landmark in the Club's history - qualification for the Champions League for the first time.

It was a huge achievement for David Moyes' squad, particularly bearing in mind the lowly position the Club finished in at the end of the 2003/04 campaign.

To go from 17th to fourth in just 12 months was remarkable. And to hold off the sustained challenge of clubs such as Liverpool and Newcastle to maintain a grip on a place in the top four uninterrupted from September right through to May speaks volumes for the consistency of a side that relied largely on just 17 regulars in the senior squad.

The success of the early part of the year led to widespread investment during the summer, and a host of new arrivals.

The second half of 2005 certainly paled in comparison however, with the demands of European competition and a series of injuries to key players taking its toll on the side.

Here we provide a month-by-month look at 2005 - a rollercoaster 12 months at this greatest of football clubs.
