Season Review 2007/08 :
Everton's 2007/08 campaign ended in a fifth place finish and a return to the Uefa Cup.
There were plenty of positives to take from the season - as the Toffees made a real impact on the Uefa Cup, the Premier League and the Carling Cup.
The league campaign had Everton mounting a real tilt at fourth place right up until the end of March, and they also reached the semi-final of the league cup before losing out over two legs to Chelsea.
There were also some memorable European nights, as Everton won eight and drew one of the their 10 games in the Uefa Cup.
It was only a penalty shootout defeat to Fiorentina that ended the Blues' splendid run in the competition.
Amongst the squad, too, there were some outstanding achievements. Player of the Season Joleon Lescott scored 10 times and was a picture of reliability at the back.
Phil Jagielka grew into a first rate centre half and was rewarded with an England call-up, while Tim Howard was near-impeccable in goal.
Tim Cahill and Andrew Johnson both hit double figures in their goal tallies, while Yakubu enjoyed a great first season on Merseyside. He blasted 21 goals as the club's leading scorer.
