Fear & Loathing at Goodison Park: Everton FC under David Moyes chronicles a fascinating era in Everton's modern history.
A period which saw relegation dogfights make-way for Champions League qualification and the club’s 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 seemingly redefined, not only at Everton but within the game as a whole, as one of English football's fallen giants attempted to re-establish itself amongst the elite.
With the financial chasm widening in a league engulfed by an influx of foreign investment and media conglomerates, David 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 altering the financial landscape of English football, The People's Club's hopes of breaking through footballs' glass ceiling faded, leaving only fear and loathing at Goodison Park.
