Fear and Loathing at Goodison Park: Everton Under David Moyes (Hardback)Louis Foster (author)
Fear and Loathing at Goodison Park chronicles the David Moyes era at Everton, when a fallen giant of the English game fought to re-establish itself among football's elite. With relegation dogfights making way for Champions League qualification and the first cup final since 1995, David Moyes' tenure was underpinned by stability and a hopefulness that success would soon return to the blue half of Merseyside. It was, however, a period when the notion of success was redefined, not only for Everton but within the game as a whole. With the financial gulf widening in a league deluged by an influx of foreign investment and media conglomerates, Moyes' Everton became synonymous with operating on a shoe-string budget, in an era of multi-million -pound transfers and bloated wages. With billionaire takeovers reshaping the landscape of English football forever, the people's club's hopes of breaking through football's glass ceiling faded, leaving only fear and loathing at Goodison Park.
