Everton defender Phil Jagielka claims next season cannot come soon enough for the Merseyside club.The Toffees' campaign has been one of frustration and inconsistency, with an expected challenge for a European place not materialising.Fears of relegation have all but been extinguished by Saturday's hard-fought 2-1 win over Fulham at Goodison Park, which lifted David Moyes' men to 40 points in the Barclays Premier League.But, after finishing with a flourish last year, the club had much greater ambition than to be battling for a place in the top eight.Jagielka said: "I was really excited about the start of this season but unfortunately we didn't start the way we wanted to. It snowballed and we didn't pick up many points."As much as I don't want to rule out the rest of this season, I can't wait for the next. We`ve got some exciting players and hopefully the gaffer can add to that and we have a decent pre-season and, for once, a decent start to the season."
