Everton took their time in bringing new signings to the club during the summer window.
Manager Marco Silva looked as though he would have to rush through his business as the clock ticked down.
In the end, though, the Merseyside outfit recruited six new players, including Richardson, Bernard and Yerry Mina.
There were 10 outgoings in total, but some fans believe that the squad needs to be trimmed some more.
Everton are not permitted to bring in any more new signings, but the transfer windows of clubs abroad remain open until the end of the month.
Also, clubs in the Football League can secure loan signings from the top flight before August is out.
The futures of Yannick Bolasie, Muhamed Besic and Sandro Ramirez remain unclear due to the fact that they are unlikely to get much game time, while there are some other fringe players that could be shown the exit door.
On Reddit, a group of Everton fans debated who should leave, or even if Silva should trim the squad further.
