During the 2005–06 English football season, Everton competed in the Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

Despite finishing in the coveted fourth place last season, Everton suffered a downturn this season. Early exits from both the Champions League and the UEFA Cup took their toll on player morale, and at the end of October the Toffees stood in the relegation zone. The club eventually rallied to secure a safe eleventh place in the final table - not high enough for any further European adventures the next season, and somewhat embarrassing for a side which had achieved so much last season.

The end of the season saw the retirement of Scottish striker Duncan Ferguson, the highest scoring Scotsman ever in the Premier League's history.
