Everton players tell their worst Christmas cracker jokes

As we approach Christmas, the Everton squad have donned their finest dodgy festive jumpers to reel off their favourite cracker jokes -- each more groan-inducing than the last.

TOE POKE: FOOTBALL FUNNIES

- The Wall: Newspaper's De Gea tribute
- Cheeky t-shirt: Man Utd fans poke fun at Gerrard
- Mud, glorious mud: Club World Cup farce
- Foot flap: West Brom player's gruesome injury
- Wenger is Frozen: Funny Arsenal manager parody
- Pecs appeal: Crouch copies Ronaldo
- Him again: Crouch goes crowd surfing

- World Cup bonanza: Gotze's boot sells for millions

While the likes of Leighton Baines, Steven Naismith and Roberto Martinez are all suitably appalled by the punchlines on offer, Leon Osman is in his absolute element as he bangs out zinger after dreadful zinger.


Fans boo Everton as Besic and Barkley help the Blues overcome QPR

Everton manager Roberto Martinez was pleased with the central midfield partnership between Ross Barkley and Muhamed Besic, as Everton claimed three points against QPR.

A combination of luck and the occasional smattering of quality meant Everton ran out 3-1 winners against Queens Park Rangers and moved into the top half of the table.

Three goals and three final touches off opposing players are a clear indication of fortune favouring the home side, though said fortune did run out when Kevin Mirallas departed on a stretcher after Jordan Mutch's unsightly lunge. The injury is a blow for a player climbing above the stuttering team performances of late. There is a constant...

Three Points: Ross Barkley guides Everton to victory over QPR

LIVERPOOL, England -- Goals from Ross Barkley, Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith helped Everton to a tidy 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers at Goodison Park. The win pushes the Toffees up to 10th in the Premier League. Here are three points from Monday's game:

1. Toffees slowly climb the table

Everton kicked off in 13th. They ended the day in the upper half of the division and as the top team in Merseyside (on goal difference). Nevertheless, their starting position was a sign that Liverpool aren't...

Everton cannot let a struggling QPR find their form at Goodison Park

Week 16 in the Premier League wraps up with Queens Park Rangers heading to Goodison Park to take on Everton without leading goalscorer Charlie Austin.

Of the various reasons offered in explanation of Everton's stuttering league form to date, the added pressures of European football are chief among them, with a constant injury list and a haphazard pre-season close behind. Glancing merely at the statistics, the European theory has its merits.

One win in five post-European outings does not make for pleasant reading. Everton have also been away from home following each of their three away Europa League ventures. That is not the case Monday, as they...

Everton reward 14 Krasnodar fans after 44-hour trek for Europa League

Call it commitment. Call it madness. Call it what you will, but a hardy band of just 14 travelling Krasnodar fans made the epic trek to watch their side take on Everton in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Not only were the intrepid away fans treated to a well-deserved 1-0 victory on the night, but their hosts also graciously decided to do the decent thing and reward the 14-strong band of brothers for their dedication to the Krasnodar cause.

Everton's academy players shine in meaningless Europa loss to Krasnodar

Everton managed to top Group H in the Europa League despite losing 1-0 to FC Krasnodar on Thursday.

Rarely does a football match arrive without a shred of pressure or expectation attached, but that exact situation greeted Everton in their 1-0 defeat at home to Krasnodar on Thursday.

Despite the eventual narrow defeat to an almost full strength Krasnodar side sitting fourth in the Russian League, the home supporters who braved the cold for this match witnessed enough positives to warm their hearts.

Successfully and impressively navigating Group H, with top spot confirmed regardless of the outcome...
