Also in today’s ECHO, Greg O’Keeffe has an exclusive chat with Roberto Martinez about Everton’s record signing Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues boss admits that Rom is not at his best but believes that the Belgian striker can fire the club to success this season.

He said: “Rom is not someone who looks for an excuse. He understands that the potential he has as a footballer will always bring huge expectations.

“He embraces that.

“The situation we have is that he was unable to get a full pre-season after the World Cup and the knock he had so early in the season meant we couldn’t allow him to have a proper introduction into work.

“He had to get himself fit by playing games and now we’re paying for that.

“We all need to understand that he is still doing a good job for the side and he will get to a position where he is 100% fit and he will be able to enjoy his football.”

The Price of Football

The big news today is the release of the BBC’s Price of Football Survey which reveals that Everton have one most reasonably priced match day experiences in the Premier League.

Everton’s most expensive season ticket costs £719, just nine pounds more than Liverpool’s cheapest. Only eight clubs offer cheaper prices for their top priced season ticket.

The cheapest day out at Goodison is £41.50 – in the middle of the BBC table – although a cup of tea at £2.30 is near the top of the pricing charts.
