Yesterday afternoon it was announced that James McCarthy has signed a new 5 year contract with the club.
Numerous reports in the media suggested the Scottish born Irishman was unhappy over so-called ‘broken promises’ from the club. However like most articles written about us in the press, it was all hot air.
The club has rightly come under criticism from sections of the supporters (none more than me I must add). Nevertheless they need congratulating in tying McCarthy down to a long-term deal.
He has become an integral part of what we are trying to achieve at the club and it was no surprise that we struggled last season when he was out injured.
Hopefully we have seen the last of his injury problems and can look forward to five more years of James McCarthy in an Everton shirt.
Come on you Blues!
