Season summary[edit]

1999–2000 brought a one-place improvement upon last season's 14th place finish for Everton, but the blue half of Merseyside was still left frustrated by their side's lack of success, something which had been a familiar scene for far too long. Manager Walter Smith, determined to save his job and preserve Everton's top flight status, pulled off one of the biggest transfer surprises of the close season by bringing in Paul Gascoigne and bolstering one of the most ungainly squads currently in the Premiership.
