Troubling times for Everton


Character crucial but wins needed


How Everton can halt their slide


Everton lacking physical bite


Roberto Martinez and slumping Everton feeling the pressure

Everton coach Roberto Martinez looks ahead to his side's English Premier League trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Unity between those on the pitch and those in the stands is a fundamental part of football, even more so when the players and their manager are struggling to replicate past exploits. That's why Roberto Martinez's recent comments criticising fans who have been critical of the club instantly left you with your head in your hands.

Intended or otherwise, any questioning of supporters is a recipe for disaster. To run the risk of alienating those on the terraces is a dangerous game. There is enough anxiety,...

Mirallas' miss a sign of troubling times at Goodison Park

Forward Kevin Mirallas' missed penalty cost Everton the chance of a first win in eight matches, but what was more galling for home fans was the fact he took it in the first place.

It is 2015 and Rocky films are still in production, a sentence almost as shocking as Everton's season. Hollywood arrived in the form of a Sylvester Stallone video message, but there is nothing box office about those in royal blue on current form.

Chasing a first win in eight matches, Kevin Mirallas chose the wrong moment to stoke the poisonous flames at an increasingly toxic Goodison Park. His pigheadedness underlined this disappointing 0-0 draw at home to West Brom.

Selfishness and ego reigned...

Kevin Mirallas pays the penalty as Everton's malaise continues

Three quick thoughts from Everton and West Brom's 0-0 draw at Goodison Park on Monday night.

1. Mirallas pays the penalty

There is an automatic assumption that a penalty equates to a goal for Everton. Leighton Baines is not just among the best from 12 yards now but in the Premier League's history. His record for Everton stands at 15 out of 16. It is almost Le Tissier-esque. While Baines was denied by David De Gea in October, there seemed no earthly reason why he would not take a spot kick.

Sylvester Stallone to give rousing halftime speech at Everton

Sly Stallone ... massive Everton fan.

As celebrity fans go, Everton have more than their fair share of not-totally-embarrassing ones, with the likes of Paul McCartney, John Hurt and even Dame Judi Dench supposedly proud to call themselves Blue.

Of the more unlikely personalties to declare their undying support for the Toffees, however, is one Sylvester Stallone, who forged an everlasting bond with the club after being invited to Everton's Premier League game against Reading by friend and business partner Robert Earl in 2007.

If everything...

Everton need Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku as focal points

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says the club had a couple of enquiries for Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o but nothing was concrete.

Everton and West Brom met almost a year ago to the day and the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns. Squandering the lead given to them by Kevin Mirallas, the Blues missed the chance to move into the top four.

How quickly time changes the picture in football. The venue is different this time, so too is the scenario; the points chased this time are to put breathing space between Everton and the bottom three. Realistic hopes of another assault on the Champions League places faded amid four...

Everton have spirit and character but now must find a way to win

The ESPN FC team delve deeper into Everton's continued struggles as they were eliminated from the FA Cup on penalties by West Ham.

After the teams finished extra-time locked at 2-2 on Tuesday, the cruel lottery of penalties decided a pulsating third-round clash in favour of West Ham, but there were a number of positives for Everton to reflect on. Manager Roberto Martinez had every right to be proud of his players.

Four successive defeats over the festive period threatened to catapult Everton's season over the edge of a cliff, but the spirited response in three subsequent draws show a team and manager focused in their attempt...
