Our season has been a let-down says Coleman

SEAMUS Coleman says he understands why Everton fans are frustrated with the team's performances this season.

Coleman's side are up to 12th in the Premier League following Saturday's 1-0 win over Burnley, but even though the Toffees are now unbeaten in four, the Donegal man admits the season has been a let-down.

"The fans have had a right to be disappointed this season, just as the players were and we're all feeling the same," said Coleman (above).

"After last season they had high standards, like we all did, but this club sticks together and we want to finish the season with positive signs and to be able to look forward to next season.

"At this stage of the season the most important thing is to finish as high up the table as we can. And though we know it hasn't been good enough this season we want to go and finish as high up the table as we can," he added, admitting that Everton had to work hard for Saturday's win over a 10-man Burnley.

"You could sense there were a few nerves towards the end but as they've gone down to 10 men they were just launching balls into the box at every chance they had," he said.

"That is no disrespect to them, but it was about defending them and winning the second balls."

Next up for Everton is a home game with Manchester United as they see out their season against Aston Villa, Sunderland, West Ham and Tottenham.
