Roberto Martinez deserves criticism for wretched Everton's dire form

Romelu Lukaku put one in his own net in Everton's dire 3-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday.

Once Southampton extinguished Everton's early promise with the opening goal, there was little hope for the Toffees on their trip to the south coast on Saturday. The home side finished good value for their 3-0 win and Roberto Martinez has plenty of questions to answer as he faces up to the toughest period of his Everton career.

Last season, two own goals on this ground ended the Toffees' Champions League hopes. Another goal by an Everton player had the Saints en route to an easy three points this...

Kevin Mirallas' absence leaves Everton with plenty to ponder vs. Southampton

Everton and USA goalkeeper Tim Howard has revealed how tough it was signing for Manchester United at 23, and his own favourite shot stoppers.

There is rarely a good time to travel to Southampton -- particularly for an Everton side with just one win from their last 13 visits to the south coast -- but this may be a better time than most.

The Saints are one of the few sides having to contend with a lengthier injury list than the Blues', not to mention the home side's current run of five successive defeats. Their lack of confidence and long list of absentees are things Roberto Martinez's men have to exploit.

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.


- 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

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...
