Season summaryEdit

The Everton directors finally lost patience with Walter Smith when they sacked him on 13 March after being knocked out by Middlesbrough in the FA Cup quarter final as well as their poor league form with only one win in 13 league games which saw them slip down the Premiership table and one point above the relegation zone.[2] Former Preston and future Manchester United boss David Moyes was named as his successor, and did a good job of steering Everton clear of the drop zone – though they finished 15th in the table.

KitEdit

Everton retained the previous season's home kit, manufactured by Puma and sponsored by one2one.[3] The away kit was Silver and the third kit was pink with black sleeves. Both away and third kits had black shorts.
