Everton have spent more time in the English Top Division than any other team, and are fourth in all-time titles with 9 (more than Chelsea). They finished 5th in 2007-2008, but a huge gap remains between them and the Big Four. The Toffees certainly won’t be helped by any offseason additions, as confusion over a new stadium has left any extra funds unavailable for transfers. Enjoy an intercity rivalry with Liverpool.
